When you're tall, lanky and a little bit awkward, you don't want to draw attention to yourself. A lot of my life has been spent trying not to attract attention to my physical self. I admit that's pretty hard when you're 6-feet-4.

I was wondering why the average Danny is only 5ft8.66; then I remembered that we have the 4ft10 Danny de Vito, but even smaller than DeVito is a guy called Danny Woodburn. He is a minuscule 3ft11, unless I’m much mistaken.

I’ll be back if I have this fact wrong.

Danny, who was a knock-out in the Lethal Weapon franchise, the first two of which I saw at the pictures, where I was able to marvel at his 6ft3 height, gets exactly that for his peak and 6ft1.25 for today’s height. I enjoyed the scene wherein his young son is rapping at the dinner table, and by the looks of him, so did Mel Gibson!

Wow lost loads. 6-3 max peak.

Having just read an old comment of mine, I fancy picking about on a Christmas dinner right now! πŸ˜‹

I have a craving for sage and onion stuffing and Brussels sprouts, and the rest wouldn’t go a miss either!

The fantastic Danny gets 6ft3 for his peak and 1.75” less today.

If ROb would meet him today then i think he would be listed at 6 foot. He shrinks faster than Eastwood. Peak seemed around 190 cm. I think he could look under it sometimes but in predator 2 he ralla had a good amount of height on Bill paxton and gary busey: hard to argue under 6Β΄3 beside them ( at the same time adam baldwin did look more than 1 inch taller but i guess he had big boots on and military posture. In reality there was 1 inch. Also i have mentioned this before but my my 194 cm firend meet him on a con maybe close to 10 years back and he thought " at best 184".

Looks 6-0 above imo. Peak 6-3
Tall Sam said on 17/Sep/22
He was one of the most legit solid 6’3” actors IMO at peak. He may have shrunk considerably but it’s not as severe as Clint Eastwood.

He was one of the tallest actors in Predator 2. Glover wasn't 6'2.75" in 2013. Rob knows it. At age 67 I won't be 6'4".

His height loss is nuts

My dad is the same age and hasn't lost anything. If he has it's no more than 1/4
berta said on 29/Aug/22
he is probably down to 183 now. he was shorter than bill murray in a zombiemovie from 1-2 years ago. An bill murray ha probably went from 186 to 184,5-85 now.
5'7 and a bit said on 14/Apr/22
Peak height, I can see being 6'3 and still looked 6'1 with Rob.
These days however he looks like he's lost a little more height and can even struggle to
look over 6'0 1/2 at times. 6'0 3/4 might be likely these days.
V for 1984 said on 25/Jan/22
6.2.75 peak. Now 6-1 or just under
5'10 Dude said on 25/Nov/21
Danny Glover has lost a lot of height for sure. Around 6'3 is reasonable for his peak height. The only film I've seen him in is "The Royal Tenenbaums" and he is indeed noticeably tall in that film.
Rising174cm said on 19/Nov/21
@BalticGuy: I think Glover's eye level is more like 5".

He was never 6'4", but he could have been reasonably close to 6'3". Gibson wore cowboy boots in the first 3 Lethal Weapon films and he was the bigger star and main action hero of the films, which explains why they wanted to minimize the difference. Glover had a habit of slouching a lot next to Mel and others as well. You can see at the Lethal Weapon 4 premiere that Glover never stands remotely straight, but still towered over the entire cast in his early 50s. He had to have still been at least 6'2.5" at that time.

You have Mel Gibson right at 5'9" peak and on the rare occasion Mel wore regular dress shoes, Glover did indeed tower over him at the 1988 Oscar's. Here's how Glover looked standing tall next to Mel onstage: Click Here That's definitely a 6" difference. And in this wider shot off from the 1988 Oscars, Glover looks 7" taller! Click Here

He wasn't 6'4", but I'd say he was reasonably close to 6'3". I'd guess 6'2.75" based on how he looked with 6'4" Adam Baldwin in Predator 2. Clint Eastwood was probably 6'2.75" range in 1992 and Danny Glover looks similar: Click Here
berta said on 16/Nov/21
did look 190 cm peak but maybe he could have been the full 6Β΄3 peak. Today i think he is under 6Β΄1. My 194 cm firned meet him at a convention couple years ago and hedidnt think he was over 184 cm, maybe just bad posture but at the same time current Bill Murray did look 1 icnh taller than him also. I tink he was 190 and now 184 and west with early morning height or shoe height and rounded up.

I was 26 when I went to the pictures to see 'Lethal Weapon', and I sympathized with his turning the ripe old age of 50!
Now I wish I was that age again!

6ft3 peak;. 6ft1 now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/21
He looked around 6ft3 in Lethal Weapon, don't see any need to change his peak
BalticGuy said on 13/Jul/21
6'1"? Now in that photo. No, not these days. Maybe in his prime he might have gotten close to that but if that's a 5'8" Rob, there's no WAY the man next to him is 6'1". 5'9, 5'9.5" is about the eye level of a 6'1" man. Rob's head here is square on his eye level. I'm calling it: Current Danny Glover: maximum height of 6'0", minimum of 5'11". Call it even 5'11.5" and you're likely really close to the ballpark. PRIME Danny Glover? Maybe, I don't know. I could believe he could get almost there in his prime but DEFINITELY not a legit 6'1" in that photo.

Danny's a lovely guy, and I came to that conclusion when I saw 'Lethal Weapon' at the pictures. His family Christmas put a smile on Mel Gibson's face, even though he was sad and in mourning.

Wishing the magnificent Danny Glover a Very Happy 74th Birthday. I love all his films, especially when he plays a warm-hearted family man in the 'Lethal Weapon' series, and helps out his suicidal partner, played by Mel Gibson.

I couldn't believe my eyes when he made an appearance in the movie 'Saw'; what a gut-wrenching horror that was!

Have a great day, Danny! XXX πŸ˜πŸ‘

i Think this guy lost height pretty early and about the time he was making saw he could have been down to maybe almost 189 from a peak of 6Β΄3. today i dont Think he measure 6Β΄1 anymore. my friend thought he looked about 183-184 5 years ago ( of course he measure taller than he looks with that posture) lets say he was legit 6 foot 1 5 years ago, then he really must be down to 184 today. beside Dwayne johnson he looks mutch shorter than this. if i didnt know who he was and just looked at him beside Dwayne then i would guess 183 and not a mm over.

Ha ha! I remember when I saw him in 'Lethal Weapon' at the pictures and he was celebrating his 50th Birthday, and kept saying, "I'm getting too old for this!"

He had my every sympathy, but then I was only 26 myself!

Now he's turning 73, so might have a genuine right to moan! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

That rapping scene at the dinner table took some beating! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

6ft3 peak, 6ft1 now.

6’3 max peak
Pierre A. Agamata said on 6/Jul/19
I think at his peak he was probably about 6'3" or 6'3 1/2". In "Grand Canyon" he looked a good 1 or 1 1/2 inches taller than Kevin Kline who is a solid 6'2".
ThrowawayComment said on 5/Apr/19
how tall was he in SAW? He was 57 when it was filmed so i think he could have lost some height by then.
Editor Rob
Over 6ft 2 I'd have said.
Nik said on 21/Mar/19
I think he can just about pull off 6'1" and 45 voters think so too!
Rising174cm said on 28/Feb/19
@viper: I was a big Bonds fan so I remember that show. Wasn't it on ESPN? Unfortunately, I don't remember how he looked with Glover, but I'll definitely try to find it. Bonds is an excellent reference since he's one of the guys whose height I'm most certain of, but I am surprised Danny looked that tall with him when he was pushing 60 since I wouldn't have guessed Danny was still at his peak height. It's clear Danny was taller than just 6'1"-6'2" range. I only disagree slightly in that I think it's possible Glover was just below 6'3" because he did seem a full inch shorter than 6'4" Adam Baldwin in Predator 2 and he didn't look taller than Clint Eastwood in 1992: Click Here and I think Clint may have dropped just below 6'3" to something like 6'2.75" or 190 cm himself sometime between The Dead Pool(1988) and In The Line of Fire(1993), but it's possible Clint was still a full 6'3". I think there's a very good chance Danny was your height(6'3" midday and 6'2.75" at his low?) and if he wasn't a full 6'3", I think he was at least very close at something like 6'2.75".

How tall would a 55 year old Danny be in this 2002 pic if he weren't leaning? Click Here Mel just about reaches the bottom of Danny's eye, which would be a 5" difference based on the mugshot in Rob's photo with Danny, though I get more of a 4.5" difference between their heads in the photo. But considering Mel is standing perfectly, this photo suggests there was still more than a 5" difference between them in 2002. Interestingly, this photo of them from the same night was included in an article in The Guardian about famous men who wear lifts: Click Here The article tried to support this by pointing out that Mel looked like he was standing on his toes. I've posted quite a few shots of Mel wearing lifts and elevators over the years, but I actually think there's a good chance he didn't have any lifts in this case. Imo, the angle is inconclusive and I'd have to see more of his shoes to say one way or another, but 2002 was possibly the period of time I saw Mel wear normal dress shoes the most excluding the early part of his career. Of course, it may just be that Mel simply did go up on his toes for that photo since he's been photographed tip-toeing more than once.

@Jtm: Well then for those who share your views on Mel and Rock, I guess I unintentionally made the argument for a 6'2" max Glover and ironically, that one '88 Oscars photo does make Mel look 5'8" max. Seems I'm providing arguments against my own positions lol. But I still think 5'9" flat is the most probable guess for Mel. As for Rock, I agree with Rob's 5'10" listing partially because Rock had at least a solid inch on Mel in the Lethal Weapon 4 behind the scenes video, but also because Rock is taller than Adam Sandler, though Rock is definitely no taller than 5'10" and I think as low as 5'9.5" is possible. Either way, I agree Danny's height loss is so striking that it's obvious he's lost considerably more than the average 70 year old man.
Jtm said on 23/Feb/19
Rising174cm said on 19/Feb/19
If Danny was only 6'1.5"-6'2" peak, that would mean Mel Gibson was only 5'7.5"-5'8", Adam Baldwin was only a weak 6'3" peak and Chris Rock was 5'9" max.

i actually do think rock is 5'9 max and gibson 5'7.5-5'8 but i agree that glover was over 6'2 peak. he has really lost a lot of height.
viper said on 21/Feb/19
I thought it was pretty obvious he looked 6-3 in movies.

Hell he could look even taller than that at times.
viper said on 21/Feb/19
Barry Bonds had a short-lived reality show following him around in 2005.

Danny Glover shook hands with him. Bonds is 6-1 and Glover had an EASY 2 inches on him.

Glover was at least 6-3
Rising174cm said on 19/Feb/19
If Danny was only 6'1.5"-6'2" peak, that would mean Mel Gibson was only 5'7.5"-5'8", Adam Baldwin was only a weak 6'3" peak and Chris Rock was 5'9" max.

I just found 2 more photos of Danny at the 1988 Oscars with Mel: Click Here Click Here I've posted the video before and stills like this showing how Danny could look when he stood tall: Click Here Click Here Notice Mel consistently only reaches the lower part of Danny's nose, which the mugshot above shows is a 6"+ difference. As I've posted before, there's this full pic from those Oscars where Danny can look 7" taller! Click Here I don't think Danny was 7" taller, but this further solidifies a full 6" difference that night as shown in the other pics. This is the only time I can remember seeing Danny stand tall at times with Mel in dress shoes when they were both at their peaks and I now have to say, Danny probably was a full 6'3" or very close to it. Of course, Mel's height is a matter of debate. Some argue he's as tall as the 5'9.5" Rob lists him, others argue he's no taller than 5'8" and I personally have him at 5'9" flat meaning it makes sense for me to give Danny a full 6'3" there.

It's easy to forget how tall Danny could look with good posture in the 80's or even the 90's for that matter. When he wasn't slouching, he generally had 5" on Mel in Lethal Weapon 1, 2 and 4, especially in wider shots and I thought a 51 year old Danny could still look near 5" taller than 5'10" Chris Rock at times in Lethal Weapon 4. I don't remember a good scene for comparing Glover and Ford in Witness and I believe Ford was most likely around 6'0.25" peak myself, but I do remember Danny gave a very tall impression in that film. I'd guess there's a better chance of 190 cm than 191, but I'm coming around to the strong possibility of right in between at 190.5 or 6'3". I was skeptical, but some men simply lose a lot of height and with Danny looking increasingly hunched and even frail the last decade, he seems to be one of them. I have no doubt he's shrunk considerably more than the average man when I look at him in his prime and compare that to how he looks now.
FrankR1 said on 13/Jan/19
In the movie β€˜Witness’ (1985), Danny Glover looks at least 6’3” standing next to Harrison Ford who was just under 6’1” back then.
Mister lennon said on 28/Dec/18
I think that he was clearly 6'3 peak. 190-191.
Pierre said on 26/Dec/18
I think he was more 6"1.5' /6"2' at his peak
Zampo said on 28/Nov/18
He struggles to look over 6'0 in photo's today. There is a possibility he could stretch to around 6'0.25 if measured.
Michael, 5'10" 178 cm said on 27/Nov/18
He had to be taller than 6’3” at peak, come on Rob. I mean, watching the Lethal Weapon movies, he made the diminutive Joe Pesci look downright puny. If he was truly 6’3” peak height, then Joe Pesci couldn’t have been taller than like 5’1”-5’2” and I think I’m being generous because Joe barely looked 5’0” next to him and Mel Gibson who is only 5’9” himself. He looked quite a bit taller than Mel Gibson in the LW movies. It’s obvious that he lost a lot of height, but I think he looked closer to 6’4” than 6’3” at peak.

No way he was under 190cm back in the days...
I'd even give him 191 with good posture, he absolutely towered his co-stars ( look at Gibson in the first Lethal Weapon ) in the 80's-early 90's

Rob do you really think Danny is as low as 6'1" these days?? I would've said 6'2" absolute lowest...?? Of course you're the world's ultimate height estimateur..
Editor Rob
I think today he probably is around 6ft 1 flat, although 10 years ago might have been 6ft 2 range still.
Jordan87 said on 6/Mar/18
Actually If you straighten his head out to match Rob's he is about 6'0-1/2", maybe 6'0-3/4. This is of course at age 67 ( When he took this pic). He was likely around 1.25 taller in his heydey which puts him at 6'2". He only inflated his height by an inch with a 6'3 claim so thats not shocking, but he was nowhere near 6'4.

One of my all time favorite actors back in 80-90s he was big 6 3 dude.
Massively towered most everybody even had a good deal on 6 1 guys.
His build does give him tall look but he is shrinking and hasnt landed a decent role in a spell.
Remember he made peak harry ford look average or less in a bit part. "possibly over this mark in 30s"

Rob would glover be a lot taller than gary busey These days or just by a fraction. Looked about 3 inches taller than busey in lethal weapon and predator2. Since you list glover at 185 cm and busey at 183 are they guite the same today?
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Aug/17
He looked a good inch shorter than Baldwin to me. I can buy as tall as 6'3" in his prime as he could seem very tall in the 80s, but nothing above that. Personally, I think he was a weak 6'3" or 190 cm, exactly the average guess at the moment and shrunk down to a flat 6'1". That's a significant height loss as it is for a seemingly healthy 70 year old. I guess he was 186 cm when Rob met him at 66-67 years old.
jimbo said on 30/Jul/17
He's about the same height as Adam Baldwin in predator 2. I think he was every bit 6'3 or 6'4 and has shrunk significantly.
Dmeyer said on 21/Jul/17
He must have a much smaller head than Miller as your head top IS just over his eye and yet he measures 6 FT 1/8 and with Miller your head reaches well above and not sont much under his hairline while Miller measures less than 1 cm smaller in the pic
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Jul/17
Danny doesn't look over 6ft in the above picture, but it might just be the picture at fault!
I was chatting about his 'Lethal Weapon' co-star just the other day, (Mel Gibson) and Danny does cut a fine figure of well over 6ft in those terrific films, there's no getting away from it!
Wasn't it 1987 when the first of them came to our screens? Well, either that or 1988, and Danny's character was celebrating his 50th Birthday in the first one, moaning that he was "getting too old for this....!" (chaotic Police work!)
Whether he was a true 50 or not, I assume his height was at its optimum then; not many men have lost any appreciable height at 50, so I will go for 6ft2.5 peak and 6ft1 for today's height.

the **** is just above the 6 foot mark in the photo assuming that he shrunk 2 inches hes peak height could not have been over 6 foot 2
RisingForce said on 10/Jul/17
Going off memory, it typically looked 4-5 inches in the Lethal Weapon films without discriminating regarding wide shots vs close shots.

I don't fault anyone for wearing lifts(as I'd have to fault myself!) have no doubt Mel has worn lifts frequently and of course, has worn cowboy boots more than anything else for decades. If you look at 2006-2007 comments on the Steve Guttenberg and Simon Cowell pages for instance, Rob was mentioning Mel's footwear in the same vein as Sly back when Mel's page was more popular and for good reason. Not just with much taller guys either. If you look at all of Mel's appearances on the Tonight Show with Leno, when he wasn't wearing cowboy boots, he had obvious elevator shoes multiple times. Aside from Mel's big hair advantage, Gibson wore cowboy boots in the first 3 films, which alone could give Gibson as much as an inch over Glover's shoes even without a lift and a minimum 2 cm advantage. Then you consider Glover will drop a couple of inches slouching while Mel consistently stands well and finally, if we have a star of a blockbuster action franchise, whose sidekick towers over him by perhaps half a foot, they'll undoubtedly work to minimize this. It's routine practice to minimize big height differences regardless in films for aesthetic purposes. I'd take anything outside of a wide shot with a grain of salt. If you see the scene where the two are walking in the parking garage in the first film, the difference can look pretty big considering Mel's cowboy boots and hat. I'm not certain he had extra lifts inside his cowboy boots in that film, though, but I'm almost positive by the 3rd as those ones looked thick like the Burt Reynolds or Chuck Norris type: Click Here If he wore lifts in the first, then it was probably an insert as the boots themselves looked like any other cowboy boot to me. I don't think Mel became height conscious until around that time or after when he likely got tired of hearing he was 5'4", 5'6", 5'7", 5'8" etc.

The key is seeing them when Mel doesn't have his boots or other suspicious footwear. This pic from the '88 Oscars shows there's a very large difference between the two: Click Here Now I'm sure with at least a 7" difference there the picture favors Glover - perhaps the photographer on his side or Danny is slightly closer - but that does support the 6 inch difference I saw on the video from that night when Danny stood tall. If you look at the Lethal Weapon 4 premiere, I'm almost positive Mel had normal shoes with no lifts there and you can't find Danny standing halfway decently that day, but it's obvious he'd still be more than 5 inches taller than Mel so Danny doesn't seem to have lost much at all by 1998. Even as late as 2002, Mel standing perfectly struggles to reach Danny's eyes even when he's leaning noticeably: Click Here Danny must have still been over 6'2" then, but the difference between the two now 15 years ago is much smaller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/17
James I think Mel will routinely wears lifts around much taller guys which you can't fault him for really.
James B said on 5/Jul/17
In the lethal weapon films Mel Gibson didn't look that ridiculously short next to Glover.

But then who knows what tricks were made to make Mel look tall on screen
RisingForce said on 14/Jun/17
The more I think about it, regardless of why Glover has lost so much height, it's actually quite obvious he's lost significantly more than the typical 70 year old. I posted this video of Mel Gibson and Danny at the recent Richard Donner tribute on Mel's page: Click Here The difference looks 3 inches or less most of the video, except maybe when Danny stands better around 4:34, 5:03 and 6:45. Plus, a recent photo: Click Here Don't know how much Mel's boots add there, but now a 41 year old Glover with Mel: Click Here and a still of when Glover straightened up: Click Here You can see back in '88, Danny towered over Mel by what I'd say is 6 inches, but now, I don't think you could call the height difference towering. Danny has gone from a very tall man to a man who often doesn't look that tall with his posture. That's a notable characteristic of his completely changing. For another comparison, Danny was on Criminal Minds a few years ago and there didn't seem to be too much of a difference between him and Shemar Moore, who Rob has at 6 feet, but go back to the late 80s/early 90s and compare Danny to Gary Busey who Rob also has at 6 feet and there was definitely a noticeable difference between the two. 6'2.75" or 6'3" are both probably fine.
RisingForce said on 10/Jun/17
Fair enough, Rob. He could definitely look as tall as 6'3", but the 6'2.75" could look possible as well. Definitely no more or less than that range with Adam Baldwin, but even if Glover was still 186 then, losing 1.75" by that time makes me raise an eyebrow. I suppose I shouldn't assume too much without looking into his history, but I don't think a guy like Glover did enough stunts, weights etc. to account for it. His tendency to slouch a lot with shorter people may have not helped, though.
Editor Rob
Almost 2 inches does seem a lot...I could understand an almost 6ft 3 listing.
RisingForce said on 6/Jun/17
Rob, Danny was only 66-67 when you met him, that type of loss seems pretty extreme for someone Danny's age without anything to explain such an usual loss. Do you think 190 cm peak might be more likely then? He doesn't seem sure of his height with either quote. He could look quite tall in the 80s, but then so could someone just under 6'3", especially on screen. I can easily see a legit 6'3" like Jimmy Smits being taller.
Editor Rob
I think 6ft 3 and 1 today is believable, although that day he may well have still measured over 6ft 1.
Mike said on 23/May/17
I still think he is over 6ft 1. He has a big forehead, plus he is not standing at his tallest, up straight there would be at least 5-5.75 inches between them.
RisingForce said on 18/May/17
190 cm peak is definitely more likely, imo if he was a 6'1" guy when Rob met him at 66-67 years old, a full 2" loss is a bit much. In fact, even the 4.5 cm I'm assuming he lost by that age is a lot. A guy like Carl Weathers, who I'd expect more injuries from has maintained around 6'1". Height loss definitely can vary a lot, but even a peak of 190 cm puts Danny well above normal height loss. With that said, he could look a solid 6'3" at times such as when he stood straight, I thought he had a solid 6 inches on 5'9" Mel Gibson when Gibson didn't have his cowboy boots at the 1988 Oscars.
Canson said on 17/Apr/17
Peak prob 190cm barefoot maybe full 6'3 (190.5) and 6'1 today
Jordan87 said on 30/Mar/17

Charlie Charlie Charlie. Return of the Charlie. He is clearly above 5'11"( Ill let you in on a secret....Rob has a picture with Danny).

You Clown, Based on your comments on this site thus far, either your are a troll or your are sub 5'2. Which would you like to be labeled?
Charlie said on 24/Mar/17
He looks more like 5 ft 11 to me
S.J.H said on 7/Mar/17

Danny glover having a little camera advantage with rob and rob came half inch above his eye level. He have to be 6'0.5
Pierre said on 24/Feb/17
6"0' by the graduation of the scale,he's slouching a little but Rob too
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/17
Fact is he isn't much over 6'0 tall nowadays, its how tall he was in his prime that is the case. How people can look at his picture with Rob Now and still get 6'1" is very Odd to me.

Guys his age normally should loose about 1.25". Him being only 6'1.25" doesn't sound right either. I would have thought he was around 6'2.5" at least.

He certainly is not 6'1" Nowadays, Def Shorter.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jan/17
Anything less than 6ft3 peak is a joke. Look at the height difference between him and Pesci
berta said on 10/Jan/17
rob is 184 impossible for him? my 194 friend thought he was that height. and bigger chanse a little under that than 185. but i believe he walk shorter than he is and can still be pushing almost 186. What do you say about that theory
Editor Rob
berta, I think probably a solid enough 6ft 1 if measured, but within a few years I fear he will be heading under 6ft 1.
Canson said on 20/Dec/16
6'3 peak barefoot. Not 6'4"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/16
I doubt he drops below 6ft1.
Editor Rob
I would say he still holds 6ft 1 range the last couple of years.
berta said on 18/Dec/16
i think he have bad posture and looks 184 when he walks that was what my friend thought he looked but when measured he can probably still get up to 186
Pierre said on 20/Nov/16
Imo under 6"1' by the scale in the picture next to Rob,i think more between 6"0.5'/6"0.75'.Rob is a strong 5"8' but he's slouching a little
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Nov/16
Peak: 191-192cm
Today: 186-187cm

I agree w/h Dmeyer. He can still look over 6ft1
Dmeyer said on 15/Nov/16
Recently Glover looks 5cm over 183cm shemar more and 2-3cm over 185cm Purcell in movies he still pulls off 6'2
Jordan87 said on 19/Oct/16
He Isnt taller than 6'1 with Rob. Not sure how he could have been 6'4 in his Youth. To Shrink 3 Full Inches ? Who is he , Dave Prowse? Hulk Hogan?
berta said on 11/Oct/16
rob could he be little under 185 these days, in this photo i would have thought 185-6 range but my 194 friend have meet him and thought he was maybe 183-184, He maybe just walk bad?
Brandon said on 9/Sep/16
Posture comes in to play. He's probably 6'1.5" range but looks much shorter because he can't hold himself up. My dad was 6'3" peak and is now 6'2"--6'2.25" range at 64 years old(I have personally and accurately measured him recently at 6'2, 6'2.25, and 6'2.5). At most he has only lost an inch but if you would walk by him you would think he is 6'0"--6'1" because he slouches hard. I think this is the case for Glover. Probably over 6'1" but under 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/16
I think 186-187cm today upstraight and 191-192cm peak
John said on 31/Aug/16
Why did Glover lose more height than Freeman, despite Glover being younger?
Editor Rob
genetics/lifestyle might be a factor.
jervis said on 28/Aug/16
There is a pic of him with Morgan Freeman from about 1990, and he has about an inch on Freeman, who was a strong 6ft2.Also from the same time with Clint Eastwood he is the same height as Clint,6ft3 sounds bang on for his peak.
Mr. R said on 24/Aug/16
Yeah, I met him twice maybe 15 years apart, and when I saw him last year, he was 6-1.
Dmeyer said on 19/Jul/16
HΓ© is under 6'2 but are you sΓ»re 6'1 flat
Editor Rob
you could say 186cm range
Dmeyer said on 17/Jul/16
Rob are you sure he is that short , he managed to look 1in taller than dominic solid 6'1 Purcell , the movie was made recently , tge shortest he looked is 6 ft 1,75
Editor Rob
up close he's under 6ft 2 today.
180,20 said on 17/Jun/16
i canΒ΄t believe how much height heΒ΄s lost. 6 centimeters is a lot, maybe heΒ΄s suffered from some diseases. He looked 191-192 in his prime. Now he looks like 184cm.
Peterson188cm said on 11/Jun/16
Wow!! How can he have lost so much height!?

my opinion:
191-192 peak
185-186 today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/May/16
Can look barely over 6ft these days! In the 80's-90's he looked very tall and could pass for 6ft4...
Jordan87 said on 20/Apr/16
Looks 6'0. The man was 66 when this Picture was taken. Not sure he was ever 6'3. Maybe 6'2. Doubt he went down 3 inches from age.
Peter 180cm said on 16/Apr/16
Looks 183-184 with Rob,possibly more 183 or a solid 6'0,but i think he's leaning a bit so 185cm is pretty fair these days.
James B said on 29/Mar/16
Looks 6ft under the height app.

This guy has lost height.
S.J.H said on 20/Feb/16
He only look 6'0 with rob but he drop a little height here. I wouldn't say he was under 6'1 nowadays. Maybe rob met danny glover in the morning so close to 6'1.5
Brad said on 9/Feb/16
When I see him besides 6' listed Ben Guillory, I have the impression that there is an inch difference. So around 5'11". It is best seen on 0:43.
Click Here
John said on 31/Jan/16
@Rampage Clover
Yeah, and I've come to the realization that older celebrities tend to be more honest about their height, where as younger ones inflate theirs sometimes up to 2 or 3 inches. Some examples: Justin Bieber, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Luke Hemmings (although Luke himself claims 6', some websites, including Google, has him at a ridiculous 6'4"!)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/16
bobby3342 said on 27/Jan/16

He claimed 6ft3 and 6ft4 on separate occasions. But that's a very ignorant statement. Not everyone inflates their height.
bobby3342 said on 27/Jan/16
Eric said on 13/Nov/15
Stood next to him about 25 years ago. Remember, this was before the internet where we could research this stuff. I always thought he was tall from the movies I saw. I'm 6-3 w/o shoes -maybe 6'4 1/2 in the boots I was wearing. But I remember being surprised at how short he was. I'm sure my perspective was thrown off by my boots, but I certainly wouldn't have been surprised at how short he was if he was only an inch or so shorter than I was when in my boots. (I have no idea what of heel was in the shoes he was wearing...didn't even look. But, it was a dress-up event (which I was not apart of -thus the boots). I was looking down on him quite a bit.

I'd put him at 5-11 to 6-0, and that's being generous.

Again, that's around 1990 +/- a year or so.
gabe said on 14/Oct/15
ahh he makes you think gibson is a lot shorter than his 5"10 i never thought he would be 6"3 but that makes sense then.

I always assumed it was like 6 foot to 5 6 .
Ali said on 1/Sep/15
He looks 6'0.5! Yet his peak height was 6'3. Seriously Rob. I'll give him 6 ft 1.5 peak.Ted Diabase looks and inch taller, yet you have him at 185cm.

With age you will lose height. With severe illness you will lose a lot of height faster.
Gonzalo said on 9/Apr/15
In Angels he towers over a very young Matthew McCoughnay. And in Silverado, in boots, he was very close in height to Jeff Goldblum. In Grand Canyon he was taller than Kevin Kline.
All in all, I think he was minimum 1`90 in his heyday.

In m opinion Danny Glover's height is 6'1.5". Peak was 6'2.75".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/14
I still think Davi was 6ft2 range. License To Kill and Die Hard provide enough proof for that. But Glover was 191-192cm range at least when he was younger.
Mike said on 3/Dec/14
Yeah Rampage i doubt he was less than 6ft 3. He really looks atleast 6 inches taller than Mel and made Robert Davi look 6ft 0.5-1 range!
slothee said on 1/Dec/14
He looks at most 6'1" here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Dec/14
I agree with that, Mike. If he wasn't 6ft4, he was for sure not under a strong 6ft3.
That and 6ft1-6ft2 today. He can look either of those depending on posture.

Standing tall in that picture he could probably look nearer 6ft2
mike said on 11/Nov/14
Peak: 191-192 cm
Today: 186-187 cm

I saw Danny Friday night at an event in LA. He has shrunk a lot, and looks to be in bad health. At best, I put him at just over 6 feet. But when I saw him years ago in New York, he was definitely over 6-3.
the shredder said on 9/Jul/14
Rob , would you say 5'11.5 is the lowest Biehn is? I really only could judge him next to myself when I met him , not many other people around us at the time to compare him with but me but when he stood full he indeed was taller than how guys I know in the 5'10 , 5'11 range look when I see them. I thought he looked about 6'0.5 with a bit more footwear than me. The only other thing to compare wwas my pic he took with my 6'1 friend who I did not see getting the pic , but my friend is slouching and only looking 5'9 , 5'10 with him
Editor Rob
I wouldn't guess him under that
SaveUsY2J said on 9/Jul/14
His mouth is above Rob's eyelevel, so he looks 6'1... if he were to stand up a bit straighter I could see 6'1.5, so 6'3 or close to it in his prime sounds reasonable, he's getting close to 70 so about 1.5 inches' loss on average is believable.
the shredder said on 9/Jul/14
Rob , Did Michael Biehn look shorter than him in person?
Editor Rob
yes Glover looks taller.

to be fair, Biehn was very similar that day to the photographer (who is near to 5ft 11.5 himself), he might have just edged him.
SaveUsY2J said on 8/Jul/14
6'1 peak.... lol Alucard, you can't judge height worth ****
the shredder said on 27/Jun/14
He looks 6'0 to 6'0.5 with rob , He is not losing a full inch in posture , maybe 1/2 , He is 6'1 , peak is the debate on how much he lost from . Weird how even now outside of Rob and others pics he can look 6'2 minimum. He can even look 6'4 at peak. I'd say based on his 6'1 height now that his peak was just a good 6'2.5
Alucard said on 26/Jun/14
How can people see 6'1 or more here? Glover looks about 5'11-6' max here, nothing more... 6'3 peak? Had he some sort of serious surgeries or major problem at bones, legs, back? It's impossible to lose 2-3 inches naturally, without something serious happening to your body... 6'1 max peak, in my opinion...
mike said on 26/Jun/14
he could actually give a 6ft 1.75 impression if he stood straight.
the shredder said on 24/Jun/14
6'4 with Shaq lol.
Alex 6'0 said on 23/Jun/14
Interesting pic with 7'1 Shaq and Glover and this is dated in February 2013. Not sure if its really earlier than that or not. Glover closer to the camera but if he stepped back it would be like a 10 inch difference making him look 6'3! Pic doesn't add up though.
Click Here
the shredder said on 22/Jun/14
I can buy that he lost 1.5 , but I don't believe he is 6'1.5 now . 2 inches is a lot from his peak and I have him 6'1 max.
Connor 183cm said on 21/Jun/14
Rob, how tall do you think Danny was in Predator 2? i thought he looked 6ft 2-2.5
Editor Rob
I think he was near 6ft 3 still
the shredder said on 9/Jun/14
Rob , you think he has Spine Curvature along with losing 1.5 inch ? So he really can not stand fully at all.
Editor Rob
I don't think it looks much, I would put his loss more down to just discs becoming thinner rather and wear and tear.
the shredder said on 7/Jun/14
Rob , is it just posture in his back or height loss from discs in his back that made him lose height? It can also be neck or nees but I agree with back , his neck and head still looks the same. I can't see him measuring over a solid 6'1 standing correct , which is why 6'3 peak seems questionable at times.
Editor Rob
some people can develop more spine curvature, while one man's discs don't thin as much as another man's.
the shredder said on 7/Jun/14
Rob , is it possible he was never over 6'2 and did not lose much?
Editor Rob
I doubt he was only 6ft 2, I think in his back he's lost the height
Gocho said on 4/Jun/14
I saw him in person when he came to my country in january, i stood next to him for a few minutes, i am 182 without shoes, i was wearing sneakers so i was like 184.5 and he is no more than 184 barefoot nowadays.

It really looks 4.5 inches difference but Glover doesn't look to have good posture there. 6'1 with good posture

Jackson and Freeman have to be 6'1 range for Glover to have been 6'3 , Glover looks 6'4 with both of them and they have full body shots so no bias
jervis said on 9/May/14
Yes judging by the photos with freeman and Jackson he looks 6ft4.I he was only 6ft3 peak that makes Jackson max 6ft1 by the way the photos are from 97 were both men were around 50.
the shredder said on 8/May/14
I saw them he does look 6'4 in them and I saw a pic where he was taller than Chirstoper Reeves.

He is for sure a 6'1 ranger guy , the debate should be his peak , 6'2 to 6'4 is up for it

6'0 to 6'1 with posture , 6'0.75 minimum
the shredder said on 5/May/14

Glover looks a weak 6'1 with Rob but his posture isn't the best. More straight Id give him 6'1

somewher in 180's to 90

I think if the nurse got him 7.5 then thats ok...hopefully khalid can get a self measurement
the shredder said on 21/Apr/14
Rob , If you had to peak his peak at 6'2.5 or 6'4 which would you pick?
Editor Rob
probably 6ft 2.5, but I think 6ft 3 is still a better fit.
the shredder said on 18/Apr/14
Rob Maybe 186cm is a better listing?
the shredder said on 17/Apr/14
Rob , what is the shortest you would say nowadays?

186ish is lowest I would guess

I think he pulled off 6ft 3 in 80's
Dmeyer said on 22/Mar/14
He looks just solid 4in over rob but i steel think 187 cm
Editor Rob
that's the top of my 'today' guess for him, I don't think he'd measure above that mark.
the shredder said on 21/Mar/14
6'1 flat is the best shout.
the shredder said on 16/Mar/14
Rob , can you show how tall he would seem if he was standing at his max?
Editor Rob
one thing I didn't think was him looking 6ft 2, I thought somewhere between 6ft 1-1.5, but maybe 1.5 is's hard to show that though, I can't highlight any other con goers where he looks at his max unfortunately, I would have like too!
the shredder said on 8/Mar/14
The more I look at Rob and Khalid with him the more I can't see over 6'1 flat.
jordydecke said on 25/Feb/14
@Rob I'm not too up on the whole convention thing, but do you have any idea of any conventions in the UK that Danny might be at in the future? would actually love to meet this guy and not just to see how much taller he is haha.
Editor Rob
he is more likely doing a few in America and not much overseas, I doubt he'd be at on in UK anytime in next year
the shredder said on 21/Feb/14
Really looking about 5'11.5 with Khalid , can't be over 6'0.75.
the shredder said on 18/Feb/14
Rob here with almost 5'8 Khaild .. I see 6'1 if standing correct. Click Here
Editor Rob
yeah you could say that is arguable there.
the shredder said on 17/Feb/14
Rob , the reason I can't see more than 6'1 is because he only looks about 4 inches on you and you said he really is not losing much and no more footwear than you. Even going by you being 5'8.25 in the pic I still don't see how he can appear over 5 inches taller. Do you see 4 inches ?
Editor Rob
probably 4.25 if you were precise...but he was definitely bigger than a couple 6ft friends at this, there was a few 6ft 1 guys I know but not seen the photos with them actually being saw him with khalid who is just under 5ft 8 aswell?
the shredder said on 17/Feb/14
Rob can he have been under 6'3? He looks 6'1 at best if he had good had better posture. Actually only see 4 inches in your photo.
Editor Rob
I would have said I thought he looked a typical 6ft 1 but would measure 6ft 1.5...and he has lost height, I think just looking at early films he looked 6ft 3 range.
the shredder said on 4/Feb/14
Still don't see over 6'1 , his peak could have been anything 6'2 and more
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/14
He's 67, possible he's lost 1.5 inches. He definitely didn't look under 6'3 in his prime, in fact he could make Robert Davi look 6'1".
thebad7 said on 20/Jan/14
Wow. Rob, Danny has lost some height.

Just watched the first two LETHAL WEAPON films in the last few weeks. He's definitely around 6'3" in those films. Despite the cowboy boots, he still towers over Mel Gibson, and especially over Joe Pesci in the second film. Today, he looks to be about 6'1".

DAVE MAVERICK said on 16/Jan/14
@Mugahot - according to medical stats my bum, my granny (79) has dropped about 4 inches, and i can testify to that, and she has NO back condition.... her peak was 5'7 - so you are telling me that much heavier man with a lot more strain on his back cannot loose up to 4 inches? - please. Go back to your medical stats.

Anyways, i think Danny Glover always looked 6'3 in his younger days!
Knowitall said on 14/Jan/14
Mel Gibson is a shrimp.
Mugahot said on 11/Jan/14
People dont lose 5 cm of their height when getting older. According to medical stats, its 3 cm tops.
avi said on 9/Jan/14

Who would have the angle advantage in a picture like this? Danny right?
Editor Rob
sometimes the taller, sometimes there's very little advantage though. Sometimes even a smaller person can get advantage, sometimes a photographer can angle his camera such that height is reduced or enhanced!

the old photographer 'Malcolm' was good in that he usually stood in the middle of the subjects, new about celebheights.
gian92 said on 9/Jan/14
Here he seems 6'1 like holyfield
jordydecke said on 7/Jan/14
@Rampage, Lenad: I would have no problem in believing that he was just under 6'4 at peak so 6'3.5 could be quite believable. Have a look at him in some of his earlier films and indeed in the Lethal Weapon films. Joe Pesci barely comes up to his nipple lol!
Lillo thomas said on 6/Jan/14
It is very hard to believe that danny lose almost 2 inches from his peak.
Vibram said on 6/Jan/14
6ft0.75 here, 6ft2.25 peak.
Frank said on 2/Jan/14
6Β΄1" now and probably 6Β΄2.5"-6Β΄3" in peak
Lenad said on 31/Dec/13
he was never the 6'3.5 he was listed at that's for sure
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Dec/13
@Lenad: I'd argue that. He looked 192-193cm range in the Lethal Weapon movies. Towered over Mel...
Lenad said on 28/Dec/13
186cm max. never been over 6'3 ever
Jordan said on 25/Dec/13
Looks a Good 6'1 Here. He is also 68 years Old so may have shrank at least an inch. Would say he was at least 6'2 in his younger days.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 25/Dec/13
I could see 6'1 with better posture but no more
Lenad said on 22/Dec/13
he looks 184cm in this pic but has bad posture. Up straight i'd say 186-187cm
Mathew said on 17/Dec/13
Looks barely 6'1" in the photo. Roughly 6'3" peak.
the shredder said on 9/Dec/13
He can't be over 6'1 but that is still some height over the years , he looked 6'3 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/13 6ft1 flat even a possibility now, Rob?

He looks pretty similiar to many of the 6ft0.5/184cm guys that you're snapped with
josey wales said on 9/Dec/13
going on the pic with Rob, i cant see more than 6'1". Mebe 6'0 1/2". The top of Robs head is about the same height as Danny's eyebrow.
the shredder said on 8/Dec/13
Brad , ask Danny if Mel had lifts , I bet he'd say " Mel is one of the most humble shorter guys ". Weaver's words and taking his shoes off with Parkison proves no lifts , sure he wears cowboy boots but anybody can , even tall men . Mel is what you see , bare minimum 5'9 .
Lenad said on 8/Dec/13
I doubt he was ever over 6'3 judging by this pic. He actually 186cm max here but he has bad posture
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Dec/13
I'm shocked that he's under 6ft2 now.
He was still looking around 6ft3 10 years ago.
Xenon said on 6/Dec/13
Lethal Weapon days 6'3"-6'4" nowdays id say 6'2"/5
the shredder said on 6/Dec/13
Brad , you are off on Gibson. The guy took off his shoes and proved no lifts and was barely shorter than a 5'10 guy. He is between 5'9 and 5'10 , stop with 5'8.
Editor Rob
gibson looked taller with parky than cruise did, while I think you could argue 5ft 9, I'd struggle to see Mel as 5ft 8 flat.
Brad said on 6/Dec/13
Mel wore massive wedged up boots with Danny, he had to. I should ask him in a month if Mel wore custom whoppers.
Lenad said on 6/Dec/13
186-187cm standing straight
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 3.25in (191cm)"

Looked 6ft3-6ft4 in Lethal Weapons movies.
John95 said on 5/Dec/13
Looks 185.5 cm with Rob.
