Do you both have similar footwear?
Editor Rob
within a few mm I'd have said
Nik Ashton said on 5/Sep/19
I’ve seen him listed as 5’11” on a few sites!
Editor Rob
I am sure he likes any site that gives him 5ft 11..

Yeah he looks roughly Richard rankins height here but barely taller than Emily barrington who is maybe 5ft 9 in heels. Bit confusing

"My listed height on @IMDb is 5 feet 8 inches. This is not true. I'm 5 feet 11!"


This guy is surely one of the biggest frauders on the site? How did he ever get a 5'11" measurement?

I suppose out of bed with a pair of timberlands he would be close to 5'10.75".
Editor Rob
Actually look at him with Richard Rankin to see how photos can be tricky at times...you would be hard pushed to imagine there was an inch, let alone nearly 3 inches between them in person!
Nik said on 26/Jun/19
Great pic!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jun/19
Nice picture!

Yes, I must agree with the Daniel is a very strong 5ft8.5!

In fact, I will give him 5ft8.75
Nik said on 1/May/19
He is clearly not overlisted!
Jesse Dumont said on 1/May/19
Take away his hair, I definitely see only a quarter inch difference at best, if both have the exact same footwear of course, which I'm assuming they do since Rob didn't bring it up. Not half an inch, more like a quarter for sure. My guess is 5'8" and a quarter of an inch at 5'8.25".
Editor Rob
I think 174cm in person was believable for Daniel, but I am not sure he really is less than that...I'd be more surprised if under 5ft 8.5 than a bit over it!

@Christian:

Where are you getting a quarter inch from? Yeah he has hair, but so does Rob. Looks more like a 3/8 inch - 1/2 inch difference to me.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Jan/19
@Bobby

Eye level is irrelevant. People have different sized eye levels. We determine height differences based on the top of the head. The top of his head is only about a quarter inch taller than Rob's.
Bobby 5'10 said on 11/Jan/19
@Christian 6'5 3 / 8

Actually, that looks much closer to a half inch difference based on eye level. I was also responding to a comment by a user who guessed him 5'9.5.
Zampo said on 19/Nov/18
5'8.5 would be a fair claim and is also a reasonable listing. Even though, I doubt he would measure 1 cm taller than Rob. Somewhere between 173-174 cm but most likely nearer 174 cm.
Nik said on 16/Nov/18
@ Christian 6'5 3/8 - What about 5'8.625"?
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 15/Nov/18
@Nik

I'm not seeing it. He only looks 1/4" taller than Rob. Even if we go by Rob being 5'8.25", that puts him at 5'8.5"
Editor Rob

Consider the case of the Two Daniel's...

One claims 6ft 6 (well 6ft 6.5 if he's not rounding down), the other 5ft 11. A mere 7 inches in difference between their claims...

The 2 Daniels.

The truth might be that the taller Daniel is 6ft 6.5 at his low, the shorter Daniel 5ft 8.5 at most.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Nov/18
@Bobby

5'9"? Don't be fooled by his thick hair. He only looks a quarter inch taller, so 5'8 3/8" for him.
Nik said on 12/Nov/18
He can certainly look 5'8.75" in the photograph above!
Bobby said on 11/Nov/18
@mANlet57

If he's 5'9.5, then I'm 5'11.
Bobby said on 11/Nov/18
He can look 5'9 next to Rob. At least 175cm.

Blake said on 8/Oct/17
Rob, why isn't he under the game of thrones tag? It is all he is really known for
Editor Rob: there's still a fair few not added, but yesterday in fact I added 3 others to that page, it's just ongoing maintenance. You can only do so much per day 👍
mANlet57 said on 5/Aug/17
weird would have guessed him 5'9.5 and over never looks short in GOT.
World Citizen said on 28/May/17
Looks no more than 5 ft 8 1/4 with you.
Puma said on 5/Dec/16
No way 5 feet 11, as tall as Rob.
mrtguy said on 25/Mar/16
Rob, was he little closer to the camera than you were up close??
Editor Rob: he is slightly closer, the camera man is more on his side, hence he is looking directly at, while I'm looking slightly to the side
mrtguy said on 23/Mar/16
He is not 175 looks no more than 5'8.5'' and this listing seems accurate
Joe said on 22/Mar/16
Looks 175 cm just under 5'9
Dingus said on 21/Mar/16
I'm his height, I wouldn't dream of faking 5'11".
Johno said on 21/Mar/16

NBAer said on 21/Mar/16
Looks 173,maybe 174 at most.LOL at claiming 5'11,he could pull of 5'9 or 5'10 to height unaware people,but 5'11?! Definitely not...

Patrick 5foot9 said on 13/Feb/16
What is wrong with this guy? He took blame for all small guys. Now everone thinks: small guys all lies about height! And he even say imdb tells lies about his height... this guy is crank. go to a clinic!
mrtguy said on 6/Feb/16
@MJKoP His hair is making him appear taller, shave his head he'll look every bit as tall as Rob.
MJKoP said on 5/Feb/16
mrtguy: He's clearly taller than Rob, but not by even remotely close to three inches.
mrtguy said on 31/Jan/16
Really he doesn't look taller than Rob, as a matter fact they look same height if not, Rob is taller than that guy his hair is giving half an inch.
Bard said on 30/Jan/16
5'11 in heels lol
John said on 29/Jan/16
Rob, if you weren't an expert on people's heights and never created Celebheights, would you have claimed 5'10 or 5'11 as well, just like Portman?
Editor Rob: I've always said 5ft 8 through my 20's (the site was created when I turned 28), so I would have continued going with it.

Rob, his claim is stupid right? I mean, he is a below average man, claiming to be above average. Isn't than kinda more obvious, than say an above average man claiming a tall height? Like a 5'10.5 guy claiming 6' is the same amount of liying, but the latter one can pull it off better. Am I right?

He is boosting himself by a ludicrous 2 and a half inches, a 5'10.5 guy would have to claim 6'1 to be as stupid. This guy makes G look honest.

As to his height 5'8.5" seems bang on, looks like 5'8 wasn't that much of a joke after all.

@Rob
I totally agree with the listing but I'm afraid that Mr. Portman will pull a "Glenn" and sue you
Editor Rob: I wouldn't lose any sleep over estimates of height.

Editor Rob: pulling off a 5ft 10 claim could be easier than 5ft 11...that's stretching things a little bit too much.
120 said on 26/Jan/16
"You said IMDB got your height listing wrong because it said 5 feet 8 inches, but you are 5 feet 11 inches tall. You said Yes.
The lie detector determined... THAT WAS A LIE!!!" I thought that might fit in the mood a bit lol.
Mat said on 26/Jan/16
Rob, was he kidding?

I can't believe he is so height sensitive, what a joke this guy is.
120 said on 26/Jan/16
Hope he learns his mistake when he ever sees this. 5'11" has got to be a joke!
Crypto139 said on 25/Jan/16
Yeah. If he is 5'11 then Glenn is just above 5'9".
Andrea said on 25/Jan/16
As i said, he can look around 5'9 in GOT but he really doesn't look much different than you here, Rob... He's basically a strong 5'8 guy! How can he claim to be 5'11??? Lool
Editor Rob: he did manage to get a photo that day with MJF standing Here. The agent guy behind Daniel claims the same height as Daniel.
Dave178 said on 25/Jan/16
He must wear very thick platform shoes to be 5'11"!
TJE said on 25/Jan/16
Damn! Looked 5'9 range easily on Game of Thrones, but can't argue with this.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/16
He looks a weak 5ft9 there.
