When you're a new kid in town, you always have to punch it out with the other kids the first day or so. Kids always seem to pick on tall kids too, and I was six feet tall at the age of 13.
At school, I was never the one in my class to make things go. In the first place, I was about a foot taller than the rest of the kids. There were even occasions when I'd have lopped myself off at the knees if that had been possible.
[on basketball team] There was one guy taller than me at six-five.

5ft11 now rob?

Seeing recent photos, hard to pinpoint exactly but it's more than likely he isn't over it now.

Click Here Then you see Clint Eastwood with George Kennedy and you think "is Leo 6ft4?"It's probably very confusing for your average person with no particular interest in the heights of celebrities.
Hong said on 2/Dec/23
Click Here Imagine if you just presumed Clint was 6ft4 and Leo was 6ft because you saw their heights on a standard article that doesn't take into account height loss in old age etc,this pic would be a bit confusing because both guys look the same height.

Thanks for the clip of the Eiger Sanction. Although its usually considered one of Eastwood's lesser movies I absolutely love it. The social attitudes on display would be considered outdated by many I guess but its a movie and shouldn't be take too seriously. Eastwood's character is a Professor of Art History who also happens to be a world class mountaineer and government agency hitman which is completely nuts of itself. So really it's not meant to be anything other than a piece of entertainment.

With that clip/trailer below we see Gregory Walcott and George Kennedy alongside Clint Eastwood. I think both of this pair are a little taller than Clint more genuine 6'4'' type guys. Although there is a fairly well known photo of Clint and George standing next to each other in climbing gear and they look the exact same height. This photo appears in the background of the movie. There is also a German actor seen who looks taller than both Clint and George Kennedy in that scene together. So it was a movie with a lot of tall guys.

James B 172cm said on 27/Nov/23
I’d say in the early 90s he was no less than 6’2 1/2
Hong said on 27/Nov/23
Leone_fan I think it's mainly down to Aspel being more 5ft8 range and Clint is closer to the camera.I would not say Clint wore lifts,he IMO he was around 6ft3 range peak not 6ft4 and by the 90s dropped a bit of height and was more 6ft2.5 range early 90s, and down to a flat 6ft2 by the end of the 90s, sometimes times looking 6ft1.5 due to slouchy posture.

Looking again at the video of Clint on the Aspel show I am still surprised how tall he looks. He does look 6'4'' here and as someone said he never usually looks this tall. When he stands next to genuine 6'4'' or thereabout guys like Harve Presnell or Ed Mcmahon from the Johnny Carson Show Clint usually looks shorter. It seems unlikley but I wonder if there was any possibility Clint was wearing lifts in his footwear. I don't think so but I'm shocked how tall he looks here. Although he was standing nearer the camera than Aspel. From the 1990s onwards he looked 6'2''at best I think.
Parker said on 27/Sep/23
'I googled the actress he's with in the pic I posted and she's listed as 5ft6 inches'

You have posted far better evidence than this showing Clint is over 6'3. I wouldn't trust any site other than this one on height listings

I mean here's that same actress with 6'3 listed Michael Rennie
Click Here

Not a great pic I admit, but I wouldn't have guessed her at 5'6 if they are on level ground
Hong said on 27/Sep/23
I agree Leone_Fan morning height of 6ft4 for Clint's peak is possible,but he was closer to 6ft3 most of the day.Also on the subject of Presnell if you watch the David Frost show interview with Clint, Ali and Presnell you can clearly see Presnell is the taller of the two.
Leone_Fan said on 26/Sep/23
In Paint Your Wagon Clint was noticeably taller than Lee Marvin but looked slightly shorter than Harve Presnell. Although with the latter there perhaps weren't any really good scenes to compare. The strange thing was that Marvin seemed to stack up better against Presnell than against Eastwood. I think Clint was probably no shorter than 6'3'' but maybe a weak 6'4'' morning height at best.
Hong said on 24/Sep/23
Click Here It's an interesting if not bizarre role for Clint,his dancing in particular was very bad and amateurish,but away from that and back to the subject of height,I googled the actress he's with in the pic I posted and she's listed as 5ft6 inches,if you add an extra 3 for heels,Clint is not looking much over 6ft in comparison,which is a bit strange,and as you said he's certainly not looking anywhere near 6ft4, that's why I think 6ft3 peak is more than generous for his height.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Sep/23
Eastwood fans may not have seen him in Le Streghe in such an offbeat role. I think it was shot in Italy in 65 in between filming or after filming the Dollars films. It's in Italian, I watched it yesterday and understood a fair bit of it. Click Here Clint comes in at 1hr 23 and certainly in an offbeat role. He certainly looks different with his hair slicked like that (like it was in Pink Cadillac). Doesn't look like a 6 ft 4 guy in it.
Hong said on 9/Sep/23
Click Here Rory here's a pic from that same show you can get a good look at all the footwear on show,btw 6ft3.25 for Clint's peak could be more like it but 6ft3.5 seems a little bit of a stretch.
Rory said on 8/Sep/23
Hong, I'm not sure on Parkers shoes though. You've assumed they're only 1 inch, but I'm doubtful about that because to me they look like quite bulky shoes. Ignoring footwear I'd say there looked 2.5 inches between Parker and Eastwood. I've got Eastwood at 6ft3.25 prime btw.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Sep/23
I mean Clint was even in a film with Richard Kiel and stood next to him on a slope LOL!
Hong said on 8/Sep/23
Ok Rory let's look at it this way,so Clint was 6ft3.5 + 1.25 to 1.5 inch boot heels puts Clint pretty close to 6ft5,now in comparison we have Parker 6ft5.5 and for arguments sake 1 inch heel?that would leave him at 6f6.5 that's around 1.5 inches difference.Also both guys have poor posture,Clint tends to slouch and Parker tends to stoop,so taken that into account I still see more than 1.5 inches height difference more like 2.5 leaving Clint looking no more than 6ft3 flat.
Rory said on 7/Sep/23
Hong,you've posted that many times before lol,I'm saying he looks taller than ebsen there for me when he stands well but 6ft3 flat compared to Fess Parker I'd say,not quite 3 inches. Does he have footwear advantage on Fess ? I wouldn't swear by that,those shoes Fess have on look pretty unconventional and chunky. I'd agree though on that particular show,he looked 6ft3 flat.
Hong said on 7/Sep/23
Click Here In this he looks about 3 inches shorter than Fess Parker at times,he also has footwear advantage,and looks similar to the older Buddy Ebsen.
Leone_Fan said on 5/Sep/23
Yes it's possible that it wasn't Clint who wanted Neeson to look shorter but someone else concerned about his image such as the director or studio executives. Everything will be done to make the star look good and not be overshadowed by a supporting actor.
Rory said on 4/Sep/23
Not necessarily,it may have even have been asked for by the director for the purposes of the camera shot. I'd personally be surprised if Clint,at that point 190cm tall,kicked up a fuss about Neesons height. It's not like Neeson towered him on flat ground,the difference was like 3 or 4cm max. Let's not forget Clint was a powerful film star, if he'd had a problem acting with tall people then they wouldn't have been in the movie with him, so I think that's nonsense.
Hong said on 4/Sep/23
Your correct Leone_Fan as you can read in the post I sent on 6th of June,this says too me that Clint was indeed very aware of his height next to his co stars and was fully aware that he was beginning to lose height at that stage of his life.
Leone_Fan said on 3/Sep/23
In Dead Pool Liam Neeson was made to stand on lower ground than Clint so he didn't look taller. Which was stupid I think. Liam did look taller in some scenes though.
Rory said on 3/Sep/23
I think young Clint would have easily hit 6ft4 out of bed,probably on a good day 6ft4.25 straight out and then at night down to maybe 6ft3.25. Solid 193 range is out seeing as he was edged by Walcott,Kennedy and Gavin, likewise 189/190 range is out seeing as he was taller than ulrick and Matheson whilst in flat shoes. 191.5 is a good bet for Dollars era Clint.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/23
Yeah the full 6ft4 always seemed to be a slight stretch. Early morning would have hit it surely. Flat 6ft3 I think should be off the menu as well for Clint's peak though.

In Dead Pool still looked around the 6ft3 mark
Arch Stanton said on 1/Sep/23
It's one of those quite rare instances where Clint actually looks a genuine solid 6 ft 4. In some scenes in Blood Work I thought Clint actually looked a bit taller than Jeff Daniels, and did look about 6 ft 3. Which is odd as it was 2003 and he started looking more 6 ft 2 range by around 1993! I can believe 6'4" in the morning peak Parker, and that he dropped to mid 6'3" range. I think he looked too lanky to be the 6'2.5-6'3 some people say.
Parker said on 1/Sep/23
Arch Stanton said on 30/Aug/23
Even if Aspel is under 5'9, Clint physically proportionally looks easily 6 ft 4 in that video to me!

100% agree mate. Minimum solid 6'3 as he looked in Magnum Force. I've upgraded my peak guess to 6'4. He's claimed it, why would you lie at that height.
Leone_Fan said on 31/Aug/23
Really surprised how tall Eastwood looks in the video with Michael Aspel. Looks like a 6'4'' or 6'3'' guy on that show. Clint was in his mid 50s then so I guess still close to his peak height and looked great overall, still the picture of the handsome movie star.

Looking at an older Eastwood from the 2000's onwards its hard to see a 6'4'' guy. At times you question whether he was ever really 6'4'' to begin with, such as when you see him towered by Tim Robbins who some claim is 6'7'' but is probably 6'5''. Clint looks like he was a legitimately tall guy who has lost several inches due to the effects of ageing.

On a side note I was a bit concerned that the site was going under due to it not accepting comments for a while. I appreciate it said was due to technical issues but was concerned maybe Rob the site owner had blown his bank balance on running the site or something. No offence Rob. Glad to see it's up and running and going strong.

Doing conventions was by far the biggest expense of running this site.

Rory said on 30/Aug/23
In fairness I think Parkinson is underlisted at 5ft10, he could pull off 10.5 quite a bit I feel and I wouldn't go under 10.25 for him. Aspel 8.25/8.5 and Parkinson 10.25/10.5 is likely and I think Clint by 1985 was 6ft3 how much he'd lost in height by then is unknowable,but probably less than half inch.
Hong said on 30/Aug/23
Agreed Rory,I think Aspel was closer to 5ft8 than 9 putting Clint in the strong 6ft3 range.
Rory said on 29/Aug/23
Click Here

You can see Aspel with 6ft1.75 Caine in the first 30 seconds here looking a good 5 inches shorter. Also in the episode with Clint he seemed a bit shorter than 5ft9ish Dennis Waterman so I'd say Aspel was at best 5ft8.5 and possibly as low as 5ft8.25. Clint looked 7-8 inches taller but was slightly nearer to the camera so he probably wasn't much more than 7 inches taller than Aspel in reality.
James B 172cm said on 29/Aug/23
Arch-Maybe Clint was 6’3.25 in the mid 80s?
Hong said on 29/Aug/23
Click Here Here's Aspel with 5ft10 listed Michael Parkinson, he's looking a couple of inches shorter,so maybe closer to 5ft 8 would be more like Aspels height at the time?
Arch Stanton said on 29/Aug/23
Clint oddly looks proportionally like a legit 6 ft 4 in that clip from 1985! and the legs of a guy nearer 6 ft 6. I thought Clint edged out 6'3" Michael Moriarty in Pale Rider James!
James B 172cm said on 29/Aug/23
Rob assuming Clint was not over 6ft3 in 1985 do you agree that Aspel looks 5ft8 in comparison?
Editor Rob
Between 5ft 8 and 9
James B 172cm said on 29/Aug/23
Maybe Michael Aspel is more 5ft8?
Hong said on 28/Aug/23
Click Here Here's Clint and Eric,as you can see Eric is barefoot and Clint has shoes on but Clint looks to have the edge even taken that in to account.In general in Rawhide I do think both guys look quite similar in height,but with the often uneven ground level in the outside scenes it's pretty hard to get a good comparison.
Hong said on 28/Aug/23
Click Here look at this video from the Michael Aspel show in 1985, Aspel is listed as 5ft9 and is completely towerd by Clint, it's one of those occasions in which Clint actually looks 6ft4.
Gerald S said on 28/Aug/23
Rob, I know it's a toss up, but who do you think might have been a stronger 6'3.5" out of Eric Fleming and Eastwood on Rawhide?
Editor Rob
Would have said Clint might have had the edge.

Happy 93rd birthday, Clint.

Clint surprisingly had several inches on once six feet Dwight Yoakam in Cry Macho. Clint was wearing cowboy boots at the time though. I doubt Clint is over 5’11” now, Tom Hanks is noticeably taller these days.
Arch Stanton said on 31/May/23
My Granddad was 5'9 and a half in his early 90s barefoot, I remember measuring him as a kid. In his prime he was "a hair over 6 ft", tall for a man born in 1900. So he lost almost 3 inches. I'm pretty sure Clint has lost more than 3 inches!!!

Clint Eastwood is usually given as 6'4'' in his prime. The older Clint is much smaller sub 6ft. Looking at him standing next to guys like Tim Robbins it is difficult to see how Clint could have once been more or less the same height. Clint looks a good 4 or 5 inches smaller and this was like 20 years ago. On the Robert Ryan page a guy claims to have met Eastwood in the 70s and puts him just under 6'2''. If this is is genuine then this would explain why Eastwood looks so much smaller today. On the other hand a young Clint can look very tall at times.

Clint was probably a solid 1.5 inches shorter than Robbins even at his peak
Hong said on 1/May/23
Click Here The guy beside Clint is listed everywhere I checked as 6ft1,Clint in his mid 70s is looking similar of maybe a bit taller? Judging from all the pics I've seen Clint from age 70 was looking no more than 6ft1 in general, with a few exceptions he was looking maybe 6ft1.5 at most.He looks to have shrunk 2 inches by age 70 and now about 4.5 to 5 inches aged almost 93,so it's perfectly understandable to see why some people would be sceptical of his peak listing of 6ft3.5, because now he's just looking like an averaged height guy.He did look 6ft3 range in his younger days compared to his contemporaries but that could have been down to over inflated height claims on their behalf?it has been known to happen,and there have been already some examples of this on this website,Lee Marvin for example originally listed as 6ft2 now down to 6ft1 and his military records say 6ft.5 so he could have been even that low.I no Clint was originally listed here as 6ft4 and was reduced to 6ft3.5 but I still think there is a good argument for an other reduction? definitely now because he's still active his current height should be reduced to 5ft11.
Hong said on 1/May/23
Click Here This one is making Clint at the age of 78 look no more than 6ft with Robbins, basically Clint was looking like he was a couple of inches short of 6ft3.5 at 70 years of age and by his late 70s under 6ft1.

It’s rather sad that Clint has lost 3 1/2 inches.

There's nothing to be sad about loosing 3 1/2 inches by 90+. It's all perfectly natural and part of aging. My Great Gran went from 5'10 to looking no more than 5'4 and she got along just fine. Height isn't everything at the end of the day.
Hong said on 15/Apr/23
I've heard he's going to be directing a movie with Nicholas Holt in it,if so it will be interesting to compare Clint's current height next to a 6ft2.5 listed guy like Holt.In my Opinion Clint would have been slightly taller at peak than Holt so it would be a good indicator of how the young Clint would have looked standing alongside the elderly shrunken Clint.
Hong said on 5/Apr/23
10 years ago he was looking 6ft range next to Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio,but now he's definitely under that measurement.
James B 5ft8 said on 31/Mar/23

Click Here @Rory I would say Clint looked somewhere between 6ft1 and 6ft2 in that meeting movie, Woods was in my opinion a weak 5ft11 and Leary around 6ft1 range.
Rory said on 27/Mar/23
Clint was definitely looking over 6ft1 in '99. I seem to remember him looking about 3 inches taller than James Woods in the film so I'd say at least 6ft1.75 at that time. I think he lost around 2cms during the 90s, started off 189.5 and finished 187.5.
Hong said on 27/Mar/23
Also I forgot to mention, in true crime Clint only looked a few inches taller than 5ft9.25 listed Bernard Hill also.
Hong said on 25/Mar/23
I'm not saying Clint was below 6ft3 at peak I'm just saying in the pic with Douglas Clint looks far short of 6ft3 and has the tendency to look shorter than 6ft3 in some pics, in fact in his early sixties looked no more than 6ft2 and sub 6ft2 in his late sixties, for example compared to James Woods and Dennis Leary in true crime,he was marginally taller than Leary and had a couple of inches on Woods. Throughout that movie he was looking around 6ft1 range and that was at the time of the pic I posted with Douglas.

Hong, Douglas looks like 5 ft 11 in that photo. In reality he was 5 ft 9 range. You can't use one photo to justify the height of the person and than find a photo of the other person looking shorter than normal elsewhere and use that as justification for somebody being shorte in another photo!! Anybody who has seen all of Clint's films can't seriously think he was under 6 ft 3, otherwise everybody else is overlisted.
Hong said on 20/Mar/23
Click Here Michael Douglas is not a tall man here he is looking similar to Sean Penn, he's not even looking 5ft9 there.
Hong said on 13/Mar/23
Click Here In this pic taken in 1998 Clint at 68 is looking max 6ft1 next to 5ft10ish Michael Douglas and that's taking in to account his more relaxed posture.
Hong said on 10/Mar/23
Click Here Here's a copy of one of the id cards used in one of the dirty harry movies, it's interesting his height is listed as 6ft2,also Harry was 10 years younger than Clint.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Mar/23
LOL. Beckham wishes he looked like Clint and Steve McQueen more like! In the early 2010s Beckham's hair and beard and squint was reminiscent of Clint in the Dollars films but they're nothing alike really. Beck's face looks puffy these days and those awful tattoos.... He'd have gone bald at least five times if it wasn't for the hair plants!
James.B 172cm said on 1/Mar/23
Nah Arch I think Clint bears more resemblance to David Beckham
Rory said on 28/Feb/23
It really isn't that rare to lose several inches when you get to 90+,losing only 1 inch by that age group would be rare. Look at prince Phillip, he was no less than 6ft peak and possibly a strong one but by the end he was 5ft9 at most and there's a guy who has had the best of everything in life in terms of food/health care. People need to get over the fact elderly people lose height and often a fair bit of it. It's not uncommon. Clint has probably lost nearly 4 inches by now.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Feb/23
More like was almost 6 ft 4 and now barely over 5 ft 10! Nah I think he could measure around 5 ft 11 now, 6 ft seems a bit generous currently, even with his posture. Marez people typically lose an inch a decade on average after the age of 60. You could expect a 6'3.5 peak guy to be barely over 6 ft now by the age of 93. Clint obviously has problems with his back which could account for more than average loss.

Jackman has a slight resemblance to Clint when he has a beard, mainly the hair, beard and around the eyes I think, but not really. Jackman certainly has a better physique than Clint but looks a bit washed out in the face and at times doesn't look well, I don't know if that's skin cancer he had at those times or something.
MareZ said on 28/Feb/23
Folks, but how is it possible to lose so much height? He was a solid 6'3 or even more and now 6'0. It's about 3 inches. I understand losing two cm but so much..
Hong said on 26/Feb/23
I meant Hackman.
Rory said on 26/Feb/23
Yh but that's just an anomalous picture Hong. Most other photos of Hackman and Freeman from around that time tell us they were within an inch of each other. I think in 2000 Freeman may well not have lost anything by then,he held his height well and probably still was 6ft2.25, whilst I think Hackman had gone from 6ft1.75/6ft2 peak to 6ft1.25 by then at 70.
Hong said on 25/Feb/23
Click Here Jackman with 6ft2.25 listed Morgan Freeman.

Marvin definitely wasn't under 6ft1, he only looks slightly shorter than Gene Hackman who was at worst 6ft1.75..look from 1.20 onwards
Click Here

6ft1.25 is more likely than 6ft0.5 for Marvin. Please don't say Hackman was 6ft1. Please.

he actually tried to argue 6'0 for hackman. i would accept that if he has the guts to claim warren beatty wasn't over 5'11 peak.
Hong said on 24/Feb/23
@Rory,Marvin at 6ft1 is believable,as I said Clint was in my opinion 2 inches taller than Marvin,but Clint at 6ft3.25 is not out of the question either. It's kind of difficult to judge .25 of an inch difference between people.

James.B 172cm said on 22/Feb/23
When you see Clint in Hang ‘Em High at times anywhere near 6ft4 just seems impossible
Hong said on 22/Feb/23
@Rory The fact at Clint's legs appear the same length as Robbins legs is probably down to Close Clint's trousers bring higher waisted,his trousers seem to be pulled up very high where as Robbins trousers are more around his hip area.Marvin was originally listed as 6ft2 and it was reduced to 6ft1 because an old army measurement had him at 6ft.5 aged 18 so he was given an extra half an inch to allow for a bit of growth from 18 to full adult height,Marvin may not have even grown and may actually have been 6ft.5 all his career.Clint always looked a couple if inches taller than Marvin In my opinion.As for Van Cleef Clint looked a bit taller sometimes it was difficult to notice any significant difference between them,and for Kennedy I posted a video of him with 6ft5.5 Fess Parker and he was struggling with 6ft4 with Parker,it's just below I posted it 23 of January.I do take in to account Clint's posture with Robbins but Robbins it's exactly stand straight either.
Rory said on 22/Feb/23
Hong, yh I'd say with Robbins he looked 6ft1-1.5 generally in most of their pictures. The thing is though is in your seventies your posture isn't as good, and so its quite feasible for a measurement he could have stretched to 6ft1.5-2 and then suddenly that's only 1.5 inches lost from peak which isn't unheard of at all for a tall guy in his seventies, interestingly too their legs look the same length which indicates at peak they wouldn't have been dissimilar. I don't really think you can make the assumption everyone inflated their height therefore we'll knock an inch off everyone which leaves Clint at nearer 6ft2. That doesn't seem sensible. As for the Newman pictures their postures all over the place so it's unusable imo. When I think of Clint with guys like Lee Marvin,Van Cleef,Bridges,Kennedy,Heston,Nimoy etc etc I just think it's impossible to say under 6ft3. 6ft3.25 peak for me.
Parker said on 22/Feb/23
@Hong - Are you playing Devil's Advocate?
I agree with Rory, you have provided some of the best evidence of Clint over 6'3 prime, and I know you have seen the youtube clip with Mohammed Ali. You also posted a clip showing him looking clearly taller than Charlton Heston

Here's another old pic with 6-6'1 David Janssen (Janssen's wife claims 6'2 for him in his biography,he wasn't that but certainly a strong 6 footer)
Click Here

In terms of height loss - I watched 'The Mule' last night. Not sure when it was filmed, but I guess Clint was close to 90 in it. I would have guessed him ~5'10 in the film, altho his posture was poor - not surprising for a 90 year old man - still looking good tho!!!
Hong said on 21/Feb/23
Click Here I know Clint is standing with more loose posture tan Newman,but taking in to account Newman was in the 5ft9 to 10 range Clint is not looking anywhere near 6ft3.5 in comparison, it's pics like this that leave me doubting Clint was as tall as his listed height and because of that also it makes me doubt the billed heights of other guys of their generation too.
Hong said on 21/Feb/23
@Rory,my issue is not strictly with Clint's height I'm just not convinced that the actors he stared along with were the height's they claimed, or were billed.I just find it a bit difficult to believe that Clint lost so much height from peak,I mean he's looking nearly 5 inches off 6ft3.5 in some pics these days.I just think in the past people could get away with exaggerating their hights more, whereas today it's more difficult to lie and for example like the Rock has to admit he was only 6ft3 not his billed height of 6ft5.I guarantee you if The Rock was famous back in the fifties his fake height claim would still be his listed height and any shrinking would be put down to old age and injuries or something else.
Here's an interesting pic with 6ft4.75 or more a strong 6ft5 in my opinion,Tim Robbins,Clint aged 73 is looking 6ft1 range in comparison that's aged 73 around 2.5 inches height loss from peak?I find that a bit difficult to believe.He should be still around 6ft2.5 or maybe 6ft2 at that stage.It is a lot of height to lose for an aperantly fit and healthy man with no obvious health issues.
Click Here
Rory said on 21/Feb/23
Hong always seems to produce evidence Clint was 6ft3+ himself but then bizarrely suggests clint was between 6ft2 and 3 based on looking at....Hugh Jackman. Strange. Anything less than 6ft3 for a 30 year old Clint isn't really a serious guess imo. I think on the whole the average guess here of 191.4 for his peak looks pretty good to me. I'd completely rule out say 6ft2.5 and 6ft4 as options, I think the argument is 6ft3-3.5 region.
Hong said on 21/Feb/23
@Parker,yes Clint still looks around 6ft with Jackman,but to think he was around 1.5 inches taller than Jackman at his peak, and is at 84 2 inches shorter? is a bit of a stretch.Clint did edge out the likes of Matheson and Urich but I'm not convinced either of those guys were strong a Strong 6ft2,and at times he
barely looked 2 inches taller than 6ft Hal Holbrook.Im just not convinced enough about Clint's height being over 6ft3 at peak, I'd guess him 6ft3 max and nudging 6ft4 in shoes.
Parker said on 21/Feb/23

Still looked a strong six footer at 84 with Jackman Click Here

In terms of his height, taller than Ali, noticeably taller than 6'2 guys Tim Matheson and Robert Urich in Magnum Force. Min 6'3 IMO, maybe not the full 6'4 but has always claimed it.
Hong said on 20/Feb/23
Click Here Here's Old Clint well into his 80s looking a couple of inches shorter than Jackman.
Hong said on 19/Feb/23
I'm just looking at Hugh Jackman on the Graham Norton Show,Jackman always reminds me of Eastwood,he seems very similar in proportion to Eastwood size Wise,Jackman was a solid 6ft2 guy at peak and sometimes I think that Eastwood could have been at peak more close to Jackman in height rather than someone like say Conan O'Brien, definitely not 6ft4 for Eastwood peak I think somewhere between 6ft2 and 3 personally but I could be wrong.
Hong said on 19/Feb/23
Click Here In this clip with 6ft5 listed Bill Travers he's looking similar although he of course has heel advantage, weather Travers was 6ft5 that's another question,also because there both moving around a lot it's kind of difficult to compare their heights.
James.B 172cm said on 26/Jan/23
6’3.25 is possible for Clint’s peak as well
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jan/23
Grant struggled with 6ft in Charade. Definitely looked more than an inch below Coburn as well…
Hong said on 25/Jan/23
Click Here ,Yes Arch here's a pic from that scene with Grant,and yes Kennedy looks enormous,6ft5 range? if Grant was 6ft1?But that just leaves one question was Kennedy wearing lifts to make his character even more intimidating? it's a possibility In my opinion. In the video with Parker, too me it looks clear cut that Kennedy was not 6ft5 so how he managed to pull it off next to Grant is a mystery,because with 6ft5.5 Parker he's struggling with a flat 6ft4.Also there was an excellent video from the Danny Kaye show which I posted a while back with Parker Buddy Ebson and Clint,in the video Parker with less heel than Clint made Clint look max 6ft4 in his boots and Clint was looking similar to the much older Ebson, unfortunately that video seems to have disappeared so I can't repost it.
Malcolm Oliver said on 25/Jan/23
Yeah, he’d edge out guys like Cooper, Stewart, and Peck

At peak, definitely 6’4 in the morning
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/23
You always get comparisons like that which don't seem to add up Hong! Check out the lift scene in Charade with Cary Grant Hong, Kennedy actually looked 6'4.5 in comparison!! He does look 4 inches taller than Cary in that film.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jan/23
I doubt Clint was a genuine afternoon 6ft4 but I wouldn’t go under 6ft3½ either. You could make a case for 6ft3¾. As Arch expertly pointed out, he was always noticeably taller than men ranging from 6ft to 6ft2. Flat 6ft3 is a bit low, I’d put him above Cooper, Stewart and Palance and on par with Wayne, Robert Ryan and Jeff Chandler (not convinced he was a true 6ft4 either)

Now George Kennedy was a textbook solid 6ft4, possibly even a littler over that. Edged Clint in Thunderbolt & Lightfoot and had a good 3in over Jeff Bridges (solid 6ft1½ then).
Hong said on 23/Jan/23
At 13.8 minutes on the video Kennedy is face to face with Parker and looks more than 1.5 inches shorter In my opinion
Hong said on 23/Jan/23
Click Here Agreed Arch,Clint and Kennedy looked pretty similar in Height,and if Kennedy was 6ft4 as listed that would leave Clint over 6ft3,but if you look at the video I posted featuring 6ft5.5 Fess Parker, Kennedy is not looking the full 6ft 4 in comparison In my opinion.
Bradley said on 22/Jan/23
Yes, 6 flat today.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Jan/23
Compare George Kennedy to Cary Grant in Charade and he was easily 6'4.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Jan/23
Clint looked too tall with 6 ft 1-6 ft 2 guys in his films to only be 190cm Hong. Clint was very similar height to legit George Kennedy in Eiger Sanction, I think Kennedy would have had the edge if stood his best. 192 cm barefoot seems the best shout.
Rory said on 20/Jan/23
I think 6ft3 max is harsh,I don't think Clint was only marginally taller than 6ft2 guys, I think he was comfortably taller than guys that range peak,had them by 1+ inches. For me either 6ft3.25 or 6ft3.5 at best prime.

I personally think 60s Clint was 6ft3.25 so if measured in cowboy boots I'd expect him to be 6ft5 as they usually give about 2 inches or a bit less.
Hong said on 10/Jan/23
About 190cm peak is my guess,around 6ft3 max and slightly over 6ft4 in cowboy boots.Now he's looking under 6ft around 5ft11 range, sometimes a bit less because of posture.
5'7 and a fraction said on 10/Jan/23
I think, if he could stand up straight under the stadiometer, 6'0 would his absolute max today.
berta said on 2/Jan/23
time for a new current height. He struggling to look over 5´11. Peak are all over the place. sometimes could look 6´4 with cowboy boots other time not really over 190 cm. 191 is my guess.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/23
His legs don't look outlandish, but I think his legs were pretty long even for his height as Henrik says. I think you'll find there are 6 ft 6 men who had a similar leg measurement, I would guess 36 inseam too.
Meltdown said on 31/Dec/22
I'm pretty sure at 92 Clint lost more than 3.5 inches. Nowadays, he is barely if at all taller than his son Scott who is probably 5'11" at most. And he's only getting shorter. I can go with a peak height of 6'3"+ for Clint, but now, he's closer to 5'11" like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Henrik said on 30/Dec/22
No, I guess it doesn't look the same as with David Prowse (who was a bodybuilder back in his day). You could clearly see on his legs when he had shrunk down to 6ft 1 in the photo with Rob that he didn't have the proportions of a normal 6ft 1 man.
Malcolm Oliver said on 28/Dec/22

Good proportions, but his legs don’t look outlandish or disproportionate (average for his height). Just a tall guy who happened to retain his lanky frame.
Henrik said on 15/Dec/22
Clint already at his peak had relatively long legs for his height, probably a 36" inseam. There are some 6ft 4 to 5 men who have shorter legs. Clint is now 5ft 11 with the legs of typically someone 6ft 6+.
Emil said on 3/Dec/22
At any rate he's tough as nails so wouldn't surprise me that he'd be standing on his two feet till the day he goes
Emil said on 3/Dec/22
Doubt he's gonna lose more height than this.

If he gets more bent in upper torso but still able to walk/stand he could drop more.

Caught GBU again as well, good to see my grave again :-). Such a masterpiece, definitely one of the ten best films ever made. In some scenes with the hat and boots and long coat Clint really looked very tall, perhaps the wax work of him in California at 6'5.5 in cowboy boots was taken from a measurement. That looks about right. Whatever similarity there is of Scott to Clint around the eyes Scott really doesn't come close to how his dad looked back in the Dollars films in overall appearance and manliness. Scott still looks boyish and Clint looked middle aged and weathered by that time, Scott now being about the same age as Clint was in GBU.

Yeah, I think he's likely nearer 5 ft 11 now, might be time for a downgrade at the age of 92.

Looks more like Beckham in the Dollars films

Rob,I think it's time for a change to Clint's current height,5ft11 would be fair guess for his height now aged 92, because at times he's looking 5ft10 range,I would put that down to posture though.But in general I'd say he is no more than 5ft11 max currently.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/22
So Burton obviously thought he looked very tall and imposing to call him 7 ft 2. Just watching For a Few Dollars More Again, not seen it for a few years, what a masterpiece. He looked too lanky and imposing proportionally to be just 6'2-6'3. I think he had to have been close to 6 ft 4, maybe he did really measure that in the morning. You can see big chemistry of Diana with both Clint and Selleck in those pics, she looks a bit overwhelmed in their presence! Selleck does look taller in comparison.
Hong said on 25/Nov/22
Click Here= Look how short Clint looks in this pic,U think the tall guy with the beard is Dennis Haysbert listed 6ft4,Clint is looking way shorter, it's hard to believe there was only an inch between these two guys at peak.
Hong said on 11/Nov/22
Click Here Back to the subject of John Humphreys height in that Eastwood clip from 1967, Humphrys height is a bit of a mystery,but if you compare him to 5ft7.5 listed Chris Moyles,he looks to have about an inch of height on Moyles, allowing for his age and possible height loss it seems fair enough to assume that Humphreys was about 5ft9 as a young 24 year old reporter at the time of that interview.
Editor Rob
In 1996 a newspaper described him as exactly that, 5ft 9.
Editor Rob said on 2/Nov/22
Saw an article from 1969 in which Richard Burton glanced up at Clint and said "This is a combination for you. He's Seven-foot two and I'm five-foot one."

Hong said on 16/Oct/22
Click Here Here's Clint in 2010 aged 80 with 5ft9.5 listed Matt Damon, it's interesting to see Clint with a guy who probably would have measured similar to the young Humphreys looking only a few inches Shorter than the 80 year old Clint and not being towered by him as Humphreys was.Its a good indicator of how much height Clint shrank from age 37 to the age of 80,and with 6ft range Denzel Washington he looks to have lost a bit more in the next 7 years at age 87.

Fair points Hong, although I would say looking at John Humphreys with 6 ft listed Tony Blair

And the pic I posted of him with 6ft+ listed David Cameron Click Here, I cannot see 5'8 peak for John. Here's Cameron with Obama Click Here

John was 76 in the picture with Cameron.

In terms of Clints height, I've seen many interviews where he has claimed 6'4 - He's also said he felt he lost parts because he was too tall in his early days.Why then would he claim 6'4? Watch the first 4 mins of this Rock Hudson movie Click Here
Hong said on 12/Oct/22
Yeah Parker, Clint looks very tall in that clip with Humphreys,if Humphreys was 5ft9?Clint is looking his original 6ft4 listing in comparison,but you can't see the ground level as to judge if there are and advantages in Clint's favour,like uneven terrine,also Humphreys height is unknown and could have been 5ft8 for all we know.
Rory said on 10/Oct/22
I'd say hes looking 6ft2.5-2.75 next to Ferrigno, and I'm guessing the photo is from the late 80s which is the sort of range he consistently looked around then.

That is interesting seeing him near Lou Ferrigno. Eastwood looks to be between 6’2” and 6’3” to my eyes but he does look a little gray and could already have been losing a bit of height.

On second thoughts if Ferrigno was 6ft4, looking at the pic again Clint is looking nearer 6ft3 in comparison to Lou.

Hong said on 6/Oct/22
Yeah Rory I'd go along with that.
Rory said on 5/Oct/22
Most 58 Yr old men have lost something however small, and seeing as we know Clint has lost more height in life than most, it seems logical that hed succumb to some loss by 58. Unscientifically to me he also looked slightly smaller on screen by late 80s compared to 60s/early 70s too. My own view is by late 80s he'd gone from a strong 6ft3 peak to a weak 6ft3.
Hong said on 5/Oct/22
Yeah he could have been 6ft2.75 by aged 58,but I suppose he still measured up pretty well next to a big 6ft4 guy like Neeson.If I was pushed I'd say max 6ft3.25 for Clint's peak, I think 6ft3.5 is a tad over estimated.
James B 172cm said on 5/Oct/22
Hong-Also aged 58 his hair was thinner and he was more bulkier/stockier than he was in his 40s which could have given the illusion of him being shorter. Anyway he didn't seem under 6ft3 with Neeson in my opinion but still not impossible that he lost 1/4 of an inch from his peak at that point.
Hong said on 4/Oct/22
@JamesB172cm I'm sure you meant 1988,but its a matter of opinion weather Clint lost any height by 58,I personally think he didn't.
James B 172cm said on 4/Oct/22
1988 I meant
James B 172cm said on 3/Oct/22
Not so sure about just 6ft3 flat peak. I mean Clint did not look that much shorter than 6ft4 1/8 Liam neeson in 1998 because at that stage he already lost half inch from his peak.
Hong said on 3/Oct/22
I think I remember Rob listing Clint at 6ft.5 at 80 years old?This estimate would probably be more accurate,but I do have to concede that Hammer is making Clint look exceedingly average in those pics,and it is somewhat hard to believe that there would have been only an inch in the difference between both guys at peak.My own personal opinion on Clint's peak height is standing tall around 6ft3 but in more relaxed loose posture he looked more 6ft2.5 range.He could pull off 6ft4 and a bit in his boots though,and look near 6ft4 in a standard heel.
Hong said on 2/Oct/22
Click Here Here's Clint and DiCaprio in 2001,Clint aged 81 is looking slightly taller than DiCaprio and if you look at Clint's legs there slightly bent at the knee resulting in him dropping a bit more height,at 81 I would guess standing tall Clint would still have been around 6ft1 range but given his habit in old age to stand with a slight stoop and bent knees he of course would look shorter than this.
James B 172cm said on 2/Oct/22

With 6ft 4.5 listed Armie Hammer and 5ft 11.25 listed DiCaprio in 2011: Click Here

Looks very similar to or slightly under DiCaprio here and in other pictures from the same event, and a good five inches under Hammer. Footwear may throw those estimates off a bit, but I think it's fair to say Clint was already under 6ft back in 2011. Very likely he lost at least another inch since then and is below 5ft 10 these days.
Peter 180cm said on 27/Sep/22
It must really suck big-time to be very tall and lose so much height,and then look closer to the average at an old age. Tall genes aren't always generous to the people that get them.
Rory said on 24/Sep/22
It's a bit of a stretch reaching a conclusion how tall someone was based on a comparison with how someone else looks with another person in one still,when theyre stooped down I'd say lol. Even so I do think Selleck would have had Clint by a good half inch both peak. By '85 I think Clint had probably lost 1cm too.
Hong said on 23/Sep/22
@JamesB172cm I'm aware of Selleck being described as 6ft3.5 before,if that was the case you would have to seriously consider Clint being nothing over 6ft3 peak and even more likely 6ft2.5 to 6ft2.75 range probably 1.90cm at peak.
James B 172cm said on 22/Sep/22

Slight correction: The third picture is actually from 2016, same goes for the first picture in my previous post. It seems as though the latest pictures of them together are from 2018 (not 2019).

In any case, back in 2006 20 years old Scott still looked considerably shorter than 76 years old Clint: Click Here

If Clint already looked 5ft 11-10.5 range in 2016, it's safe to assume he's 5ft 10 at most these days.
Philip Z said on 19/Sep/22
@Hong: For sure, the second picture is deceiving. Here's another one from that event: Click Here

Clint looks around 5ft 10.5 here if we believe Scott's 5ft 10.75 listing. Keep in mind that this was in 2018, and in years prior to that Clint still had an easy inch on Scott, putting him quite close to his 6ft listing: Click Here

In 2021, however, Scott looks noticeably taller in every picture: Click Here
Even when taking posture etc into account in Clint's favor, he's barely looking 5ft 10 there. 6ft for Clint in 2022 is out of the question I'd say.
Hong said on 16/Sep/22
Click Here @PhilipZ Here's Clint and Scott at the same event, as you can see Scott is no longer towering Clint as he was in the second pic you posted.Its just a case of an elderly man who's around 6ft standing next to a young man who's around 5ft10.5.The elderly man is slouching and in extremely relaxed posture with bent knees dropping about two inches because of that, and the younger man standing as tall as he can.
Philip Z said on 15/Sep/22
With 5ft 10.75 listed Scott in 2021: Click Here

Even keeping Scott's slightly thicker shoes in mind, Clint is barely looking 5ft 10 here. Must be close to a five inch loss by now.

This shot from 2019 looks even less favorable for Clint: Click Here

Scott might have an even greater footwear advantage here, however.

We need to realize that Eastwood is 90 freakin 2.Most people aren't around at that age,and the ones that are,are very rarely at such a good condition physically and mentally.Clint directed and starred in a movie at the age of 91.You cant exept him to be close to his peak height.
Matt6'4.5 said on 4/Sep/22
Rob, would you think a loss of that magnitude is due to lifestyle, intensity of exercise, or just plain crappy genetics? Or is it just natural progression into extremely old age? What do you think that would be like to lose 3 plus inches?
Editor Rob
in Clint's case, his age and 6ft 3+ starting height is something to bear in mind.
Rory said on 27/Aug/22
No, because I suspect that's why they were the chosen few who got on. It was the fact they were unusually tall for their generation which helped them as leading men of the era.

Rob are you and Sure about the 1988 article list him at 216lb sounds to heavy for him even for a guy who's 6'3/4 I'd have thought about 190lb
Editor Rob
Could see him 200's range, but 216? Maybe that's a kind of prime weight he once reached?

It's a Gethin Jones 216 haha! Looks 190-200 lbs but claims 15 and a half stone!
Slim1.75m said on 26/Aug/22
Hey isn't it weird the despite being born in 1900s-1930s in james stewrt,john wayne,clint eastwood,Rock hudson all grew to be 6'3+ despite all the claims of pepper being taller in the 21st century

I think 6'3.25 is more likely. But yeh I agree Rampage, he was slightly more than a flat 6'3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Aug/22
I'm not sure I'd go to 6ft3 flat for his peak
Jordan87 said on 17/Aug/22
@ 58 he was already getting 6'3" Listings in papers. I doubt they or Him would report based on height losses. he never looked over 6'3. One of my favorite actors but I'm not going to just add an inch to his height so he can be 6'4 lol.
Hong said on 10/Aug/22
Clint is definitely looking taller than 6ft2 in the Magnum Force video,he looks a comfortable 6ft3 guy, could pull off 6ft4 in shoes.
Leighton Tang said on 10/Aug/22
Hi Rob, do you think Clint is still 6 foot at 92 years old or is he due for a downgrade?
Editor Rob
Likely under it now.
Hong said on 10/Aug/22
Click Here Here's the Magnum Force scene at the firing range.Clint with a couple of 6ft2 range guys.
Becheese said on 9/Aug/22
Good scene in magnum force with David soul (6-0.5). Stood facing. Clints 6-3 minimum peak. Probably over that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/22
I wouldn't place George Kennedy under a solid 6ft4 in his prime. In fact I'd argue he was a little over it. Bit taller than Eastwood (still at peak I'd say) and near 3in on Jeff Bridges in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot

Kennedy 6’3.5-6’3.75

Click Here Even better here's the video of 6ft1.5 Coburn and Clint in that scene they shared all those years ago on Rawhide.
Hong said on 26/Jul/22
Click Here Here's an example of a young Clint next to James Coburn listed here as 6ft1.5 but usually 6ft2.Now both guys are in western outfits,both in cowboy booth style heels probably?they certainly don't look the same height too me,even if you give Clint a slight heel advantage he's looking a solid 6ft 3 in comparison to Coburn.
Hong said on 26/Jul/22
Clint did indeed wear cowboy boots in westerns but unfortunately for him everybody else was also wearing them so he could not take advantage of the high heel.As for his other movies of the 60s and 70s he mainly wore a regular heel or flats.To say he was only 6ft1.5 at peak is in accurate and ilinformed. If you look at him next to 6ft4 George Kennedy in the videos I posted he was definitely in the strong 6ft3 range with no cowboy boots by the way.
stiggles said on 25/Jul/22
Clint always came across as a 6ft 1.5 fella.. but could easily claim 6ft 3+ in those 60s / 70s cowboy boots.
Hong said on 25/Jul/22
It's pretty close there Rob?Kennedy at 6ft4 would put Clint near enough to that mark himself,so in this case Clint is looking 6ft3.5 as you have him listed.
Hong said on 24/Jul/22
Click Here Clint and Kennedy look very similar in height at the end of this hilarious video😂
Editor Rob
I thought Kennedy edged him slightly.
Hong said on 24/Jul/22
Click Here Here's a pic of Clint and Burt I've never seen before.
Tall Sam said on 23/Jul/22
Eastwood holds up admirably a lot with George Kennedy, definitely looking a taller than 6’3” guy IMO in stills and videos with him.
Rory said on 23/Jul/22
There's better examples of Clint with Kennedy in the film Eiger Sanction, and I'd say Kennedy is definitely taller than Clint by 0.5-1 inch. Kennedy 6ft4 and Clint 6ft3.25 seems fair to me. Clint also shorter than 6ft4 Gregory Walcott in that film.
Andrey200 said on 23/Jul/22
Rob are you aware of any health-related reasons for such a big height loss, or is his age the only factor? Could posture have accelerated the loss?
Editor Rob
He is still in the limelight at his age, when a lot of elderly people are in care homes.

Since Clint was a very tall height to begin with, the odds of shrinking more increase. Maybe it's not that much more than what you'd expect for a 90 year old who was active as much as he's been, still working and directing in most of his 80's...
Hong said on 22/Jul/22
By the way it's at 6 minutes 19 seconds on the video.
Hong said on 22/Jul/22
Click Here Here's Clint and 6ft4 listed George Kennedy.Kennedy looks to have the edge on Clint.
Voorhees Myers said on 21/Jul/22
Peak 6-3.5 or just over. Far too many pictures to suggest under 6-3 imo. Legit big guy.
James B 172cm said on 17/Jul/22
This is what I think for clints height through his younger decades

1950s 6'3.25-6'3.5
1960s 6'3.25-6'3 3/8
1970s 6'3-6'3.25
Tall Sam said on 16/Jul/22
Interesting that comparison with William Smith who has a page listing him 6’1.5”. IMO Eastwood looks his peak listing with Smith.
Hong said on 15/Jul/22
Click Here Here's Clint with William Smith who was around 6ft1 tall some say as tall as 6ft2.
Canson said on 12/Jul/22
Selleck was more 6’3.5 which he admitted twice
James.B 172cm said on 11/Jul/22
Also remember Tom Selleck could have been a weak 6’4

On a different note Clint Eastwood and Jeff goldblum both attended ‘A perfect world premier’ in 93. Shame there are no photos of them together but I would imagine Jeff would be significantly taller than Clint.
Rory said on 11/Jul/22
Selleck would have been an inch taller than Clint by 1985. I think peak Clint was 6ft3.25 and by mid 80s he was 6ft2.75-3. Its not true to say Neeson had 2 inches on Clint,he had 1.25 inches on him or at the absolute most 1.5.
Hong said on 11/Jul/22
@Tallerornot,your right about Selleck and Diana compared with Clint and Diana,also Clint was only in his mid fifties at the time.I think Clint was someone who could stretch to 6ft4 in shoes at peak,but would have been more 6ft2.5 to 6ft3 range depending on posture barefoot.
Tallerornot said on 10/Jul/22
Clint was a tall guy and has lost quite some height. He is over 90 years old.

I do not agree with the peak height Rob. If it were correct it would mean that Clint was about the same height as Conan at his peak. Look at Clint dancing with princess Diana and look at her dancing with Tom Selleck who is a genuine 6'4 guy. Selleck is about 2 inches taller than Clint. Clint probably had lost about 0.5-1 inch in height by then. That makes Clint 6'3 max. I think Clint was 189-190cm at peak.

Clint looks taller because he has a narrow frame and his hair always gave him a bit of extra height.

Compare his height to Liam Neeson in one of their movies together and Neeson is clearly 2 inches or more taller.
Hong said on 10/Jul/22
@Rory point taken about Burt's lift wearing,he made no secret about it himself and could look over 6ft with a good pair of shoes or boots.
James.B 172cm said on 7/Jul/22
Clint was a 1/4 inch less than his peak in 1983
Rory said on 7/Jul/22
I'd say in those pictures Clint looks 6ft2.75 if Reynolds is 5ft11,however,I think by 1983 Clint had lost a fraction I suspect,and also there is something dubious looking about Reynolds footwear there. Reynolds was a renowned lift wearer and you'd think acting alongside a tall guy like Clint may well be an occasion where he'd look to wear them.
Hong said on 6/Jul/22
Click Here Here's some good pics of Clint with 5ft11 listed Burt Reynolds,both guys would probably be at peak heights in 1983.Burt may have had some sort of lift in his shoes,but Clint is looking max 6ft3 or maybe a bit less.
Sinclair said on 23/Jun/22
Eastwood was barely ever over 6'3"; George Kennedy was visibly closer to 6'4" in The Eiger Sanction. 6'3.25" was more likely than 6'3.75" for peak Eastwood; 6'3.5" being just right.
Cold Water said on 9/Jun/22
191.3 cm - Peak
182.4 cm - Now
Ian C. said on 9/Jun/22
I myself, at the age of 70, am suddenly losing height. At least a half an inch in the last six months, I think. What is happening is, my upper spine is curving down and in. This is painless so far, but certainly disturbing.

Eastwood was an unusually strong man, who famously made a point of staying in shape. Old age got him, and it looks suspiciously as if it's going to get me too.
James B 171.5cm said on 9/May/22

Yeah 6’3.25-6’3.5 peak and 6’2.25-6’2.5 by age 65.
Hong said on 7/May/22
Well it depends on weather you think by aged 65 Clint would have shrunk by 1.5 inches from peak,I personally think that's a bit much to believe,but 1 inch is possible.
Lukesixfeet said on 6/May/22
You guys are forgetting him and Liam needing in Dirty harry the Deadpool both being 6'4" I think it's safe to say he's honest about his height as for now he's very old so he's obviously not going to be the same height.
Tech noir said on 6/May/22
Great pictures Hong. Confirms a close to 6-4 approx peak.
Hong said on 4/May/22
Click Here In this pic with 6ft4 listed George Kennedy both guys look very similar although George is dropping a bit of height he is on slightly higher ground,this would put in doubt Kennedy's 6ft4 listing rather than Clint being 6ft4 as far as I'm concerned.
Hong said on 4/May/22
Click Here Here's Clint once again in 1995 aged 65 looking a couple of inches shorter than 6ft4 Steven Seagal.

Click Here In 1995 aged 65 Clint was looking a solid 6ft2 next to 6ft1.5 Jim Carrey.
Tech noir said on 1/May/22
6-3 peak minimum. Perhaps a bit over peak. Now lost a huge amount. Looks 5-11.5 range.
Hong said on 27/Apr/22
It's interesting when Lee Marvin was listed as 6ft2 Clint looked 6ft4 in comparison,Clint looked a couple of inches taller than Marvin,now Marvin is listed as 6ft1 with the possibility of being only 6ft.05 which he was measured at at 18 years old that would put Clint at max 6ft3 with the possibility of a bit less.
Tilon kluh said on 27/Apr/22
Reality peak: Somewhere 188.5-190 cm so 6'3 max. Solid 6'2.5 man claiming 6'4.
Rory said on 21/Apr/22
I would fully expect a 30 Yr old Clint to have had an inch on 30 Yr old Ali, now whether Ali 2.25 and Clint 3.25,possibly.
Hong said on 20/Apr/22
He was marginally taller than Ali, but remember Ali stated his height as 6ft2 on the Frost Show.
