Average guesss: 6ft 0.75in (184.8cm) is the truth. No more than this. Perry stays 5'11 1/4.
Terry said on 21/Apr/19
Just slightly taller than Chandler so I think this listing is right. Maybe just shy of 6'1 perhaps.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/19
If he’s only 6ft then Perry is under 5ft11 and we know he’s already underlisted at 181cm
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Mar/19
Click Here: without hair Schwimmer is solid 1/4 shorter than Freddie Prinze Jr.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Feb/19
He’s closer to 6ft1 than 6ft
berta said on 7/Dec/18
Just look at him in drop the mic with james corden. He looks 6 feet tall. But overall he have looked taller than that. i think legit 184 maybe 184,5 But dont believe 185-185,5
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Aug/18
I think Schwimmer high eye level makes some believe he is near 6'1 but he really not a 6'1 guy. 5'8.75" Simon Pegg doesn't look 4" shorter. Its 3.5-3.75" between them.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Aug/18
@Ales Peak Elliot Gould is 6'2 and look 1.5" taller than David Schwimmer. Not sure if Elliot Gould already lost height during that Friends episode along Schwimmer. I would have think 6'0 1/2 fits David Schwimmer.
Ales said on 16/Aug/18
Looked 2 in shorter then Elliot Gould on friends If Gould was 6ft 2 then then Schwimmer is 6ft.
berta said on 5/Aug/18
rob this guy really need to be taken down 1/4 maybe even half inch
crackpotdeamon said on 22/Jul/18
I was convinced he’s 6ft1 until I saw on the other night on Channel 4’s The Big Narstie Show. He looked at least an inch shorter than the U.K. rapper Giggs who’s also listed 6ft1 on here. Check it out on YouTube.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jun/18
I still think 184cm is too low
Dmeyer said on 7/Jun/18
Rob are you sΓ»re he is this tall 6'0,5in is Closer or max 6'0,75
Editor Rob
The weak 6ft 1 zone is still possible to list him at.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/May/18
@berta Well said! 6'0 1/2 - 6'0 3/4 would be fair.
berta said on 12/May/18
100 procent that he is not measuring 6 foot 1 in the late afternon. that would make this guy 187,5 out of bed and there i 0 chanse of that. 186 out of bed 184 before bed. 184,5 in the afternoon.
Micky said on 12/Apr/18
184 - 185 cm guy
Arthur! said on 2/Apr/18
Rob will you give him the 6'0 3/4?
Editor Rob
It's always been possible, though I'm not sure I'd say it's a certainty.
Animus said on 15/Mar/18
6'0ΒΎ might be a good listing.
Junior Hernandez said on 6/Feb/18
There isn't more than 1.5" between Matthew Perry and Schwimmer. Look more like 1.25".
Nik said on 30/Jan/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!

Make that 3! I also knew a David from when I was in local government, he was a manager! This particular David was probably an inch or two over 6 foot and a little bit taller than the other two David's!
Nik said on 29/Jan/18
@ Sandy Cowell

Blame it on 'im!
I have only known 2 David's in a long time, and both of them are tall, not seriously tall though! The David you knew when you were 21 sounds like a good bloke, I am sure his children will have grown up to be a credit to him!
To me David Schwimmer sure does look 6'1", so that is what he gets!
Laurel's hangdog face has just met me on "Emmerdale"! Have a good evening!
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Jan/18
Oh blast! I've just lost a great big long comment on this guy which must have taken the best part of an hour to write!
You see, I was just going through the Davids, and I noticed that the average one was just a smidgling below 5ft11! David Schwimmer is all of 2" taller than this, with an impressively tall 6ft1! Come to think of it, most Davids I have known have been seriously tall people as well, reflecting the average celebrity David, but the nicest one I knew, who I met when I was 21, was only around 5ft7! He was the funniest man ever, and he ended up bringing up his three children as a single Dad, having won custody of them in court. I reckon they all must have grown up to have great senses of humour themselves!

Damian Lewis is probably a legit 6'0 not 6'0.5" while i have watch the whole episode of Band of Brothers so i define it for their height different within half inch and in Dream Catcher 6'1.5" listed Jason Lee had about 1.5" on Damian Lewis while Lee mostly look between 186-187cm maybe measure 187cm morning and hold strong 186cm and i recall a movie Schwimmer and Jason Lee did together in the whole film look an inch between them. So i highly doubt Schwimmer measure 6'1 in the morning and goes down at 6'0.5" as the lowest.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/17
184.5-185cm at worst
Alex said on 12/Sep/17
I'd say there's about an inch and a half between each of the blokes. Matt Le Blanc 5'9.5, Matthew Perry 5'11 and David Schwimmer 6'0.5 or Matt Le Blanc 5'10, Matthew Perry 5'11.5 and David Schwimmer 6'1
Arch Stanton said on 6/Sep/17
He looked about 3.5 inches shorter than Tom Selleck barefoot. A full 6'1 a tad high.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Aug/17
A fraction under this at worst
DaveMills said on 5/Aug/17
He is a solid 6'1 guy, just like Parsons, Rollins & other.may be his mass made him look smaller,was allegedly 200 lbs acc. to an indian site (if that's true tho).
berta said on 20/Jul/17
184,3 seems possible for him
even said on 18/Jul/17
6'0.75" is the correct number
Colberto said on 25/Jun/17
Hey Rob what do you see him at
A 188 186
B 187.5 185.5
C 187 185
D 186.5 184.5
E 186 184
I think D
Editor Rob: I can see 6ft 0.75 as quite possible for David, 6ft 1 might be the most I'd say he looks..
Dmeyer said on 18/Jun/17
6 FT 0,75 would be Γ  good listing
Canson said on 7/Jun/17
@aweknackneemose: S.J.H is the furthest thing from a troll on this site. He has said before he's about 6'7" so he's been every height under the sun and can have an easier time telling what each height looks like versus the average person. He's actually been spot on with most of his assessments and sees the same as most of the other taller guys here do. Just because he doesn't feed into the fanboy bs and inflate other celebs doesn't mean he isn't a troll. Let's get back to discussing heights and stop attacking people for difference in beliefs
S.J.H said on 6/Jun/17
@aknawkneemoose

You came out from middle of nowhere and regards of disrespectfulness of your comment. I've being visit this site for over ten years and just get over it on this site is for everyone opinion how tall the celebrities look to them and all sorts of arguement and if all visitor came in peacfully think schwimmer is this height listed and all came in copy and paste post [David Schwimmer's Height 6ft 1in (185 cm)] and this site would be silly and not worth a time for editor here to waste his effort. You are totally ignorant and could not accept the fact and believe in lies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jun/17
He comfortably above 6ft but maybe a hair under 6ft1 worst case scenario. That and Perry is a solid 5ft11Β½ at least.
aknawkneemoose said on 26/May/17
i think S.J.H shouldn't be allowed to comment anymore. they always post pictures of celebrities just in the middle of nowhere and then tries to say they're a certain height. i feel like they're a subtle troll
Ed Kline said on 4/May/17
Same problem as in other threads S.J.H. You question the height of Schwimmer by speaking authoritatively about Perry. Maybe Perry is just a little taller than we thought...
berta said on 26/Apr/17
i think atleast 1/4 downgrade. matthew perry is about 2,5-3 cm shorter if he is 181 then this guy is barely184 but i think perry is 182 and this guy barely 185
Megrace said on 14/Apr/17
not really 6"1 I just see it he is like 5"11
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 12/Feb/17
Perhaps he was over six feet tall, but not 6'1.
6'0.5 great option.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/17
Actually...I think 6ft1 is fair. He's a good bit taller than Travolta in the new OJ Simpson series. In fact I thought he could appear 186cm.
berta said on 2/Feb/17
at best 185 cm but big chanse of maybe 184,5 range?
Ly said on 31/Jan/17
Downgrade time
Balrog said on 29/Jan/17
Seen enough for him to say he's at least 6'0.5'' and max 6'1''. 6'0.75'' would be perfect. Is also good to remember that Schwimmer was easily 2in taller than Brad Pitt
S.J.H said on 7/Nov/16
Schwimmer is always 6'0.75 and i'm certainly sure he haven't lost any height yet
slothee said on 31/Oct/16
I think he often looks near the full 6'1"...I'd say likely somewhere between 6'0.75-1"
Arthur said on 19/Oct/16
Rob, isn't it time to downgrade Schwimmer a bit? Click Here Click Here Click Here

Remember the video I posted on Colbert's page where they look the same height? You too have have said in the past he probably is a weak 6'1. I'd give him 6'0.5, he looks at most 1 inch taller than Travolta today.
Editor Rob: you could make an argument for that zone...
S.J.H said on 18/Oct/16
I'm very sure freddie prinze jr having slightly less footwear on friends an episode and even look taller than schwimmer but freddie get listed 6'0.5 and schwimmer 6'1 , some people say matthew perry doesn't look 1.75" shorter than schwimmer which is true. I'm sure that rob get fool by david schwimmer high eye level and higher hair volume he apear on the show.

Freddie prinze jr 6'1
schwimmer david 6'0.75 at most (look this range next to simon pegg)
matthew perry 5'11.25
Arthur said on 5/Oct/16
There is no way he is a full 6-1...
Dmeyer said on 10/Sep/16
Rob you should list him 6 ft 0,75 as he looks barely taller than perry And not Β§ full 6'1 with selleck
Editor Rob: with Selleck who may have lost a small fraction by 50's, he could look a good 3 inches smaller, so 185 is probably fair.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Sep/16
I think C is as beliavable
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/16
Rob, which one of these would Schwimmer measure?

A) 188cm/186cm
B) 187.5cm/185.5cm
C) 187cm/185cm
D) 186.5cm/184.5cm
E) 186cm/184cm
Editor Rob: D might be more believable
Mike said on 18/Aug/16
David Schwimmer: 6ft 1in 185 cm
Matthew Perry: 5ft 11.5in 182 cm
Matt Le Blanc: 5ft 9.5in 177 cm

Courteney Cox: 5ft 5in 165 cm
Jennifer Aniston: 5ft 4.5in 164 cm
Mat said on 17/Jul/16
Editor Rob: it could be argued he falls into that range.

Does that look like a 4 inch difference to you? To be fair though Schwimmer does seem to have a longer head
Editor Rob: there could typically look 3 inches or more between them I thought
Mat said on 8/Jul/16
Rob, don't you think he is a weak 6'1?
Editor Rob: it could be argued he falls into that range.
Aaron Zamora said on 28/May/16
Why does David schwimmer look so short next to James Doreen? James makes him look 5'11 even considering footwear! That's not a 5 inch difference between them.
musket said on 29/Apr/16
Schwimmer 6'1 185 and extra with shoes so that could be 186-187
Perry 5'11 180 cm sometimes 182
Leblanc 172-173cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Apr/16
Lorne I think Schwimmer is a 6ft1 guy when he stands tall which he rarely does. Maybe 6ft0ΒΎ at worst and that's if Matthew Perry is only 5ft11ΒΌ. I'd safely rule out 6ft flat. Personally I'd leave him at this mark and bump Perry up to 5ft11Β½ (he looks close to 6ft a lot). Matt LeBlanc could also be 5ft9Β½. In the early seasons Schwimmer could look 4in taller than him at times!
Lorne??? said on 19/Mar/16
Watch the People V OJ; I too thought he could appear 183.5-4 a lot, and he does, but he looks more or less legit 185 on that show. I was surprised how much he towers Cuba, though I have always thought Cuba Jr was more 177 range.

Of course, he didn't at all seem 4cm taller than David Caruso from what I recall, but this guy slouches a lot, and low angles on NYPD Blue may have favored Caruso(plus, 5ft11.75 peak not impossible for him.

I think 185cm is fair, he could measure 184.5 at worst, but I think 185-185.5 low is realistic.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/16
Funny to hear you say that Dmeyer. In 2005-6 you were arguing near 6ft2 for him!
Editor Rob: incidentally I have just recovered another 40,000 comments from 2009-12 range so maybe some more comments will appear over time on those pages with under 250 comments...

like this page for example...
S.J.H said on 21/Feb/16
Strange that he could look alot like 5'11.5 but also 6'1
Dmeyer said on 18/Jan/16
david can pull off 6'1 other times 6ft 0.25 so i think 6'0.5 is a possible
Dave said on 16/Jan/16
Looks the same height as John Travolta
cobra said on 20/Aug/15
Looks taller than Freddie Prinz Jr. on Friends.
Judd ISR said on 21/Jul/15
In my opinion he's a strong 6'0.5" or maybe 6'0.75"...i've several doubts he's a legit 6'1"!
I think he's similar in height to Bradley Cooper and Henry Cavill.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/15
Alda can still look 186-187cm range at times. Schwimmer could measure somewhere between 6ft0Β½-1 at worst and most likely at the end of the day. 6ft flat is too low for sure and 5ft11 is crazy!
6'1" Joe said on 25/Apr/15
He doesn't really seem to have 2 solid inches on Matthew Perry, but he does have a solid inch on him at least(like 1.25 inches), he towers on Jennifer Aniston as well. He's taller than Brad Pitt. He's 6'0.25 at worst, like me. Can easily get away with 6'1".
Jacob said on 21/Apr/15
Sometimes looked 2 inches taller than Perry..
James B said on 1/Apr/15
5'11? He's a legit tall guy so no way is he that short.
Jim said on 5/Feb/15
Schwimmer is a legit 6'1. He's significantly taller than the rest of the cast of Friends. Matthew Perry is 5'11 and Schwimmer is at least a couple inches taller in photos, can look even taller in some.
Triplescrew said on 22/Jan/15
Alda is probably 6'1" at night whereas Schwimmer wakes up at 6'1" but decompresses to like 6'0.25". Also explains why is sometimes looks like same height at Matthew Perry.
Dmeyer said on 13/Jan/15
In a rΓ©cent film he looked 1in smaller than Alan alda who is only 6'1 now so he can look just 6ft
Clay said on 4/Dec/14
Greg, 5'11'' is the real joke when he clearly physically and visually looks like an over 6 footer.
mike said on 24/Oct/14
Rob, add some of his films like Big Nothing and John Carter?
Greg said on 25/Sep/14
The best height comparison shot between Schwimmer and Elliott Gould, as stated by Matt a while back, has to be in the episode titled "The One Where Nana Dies Twice" when the nurse walks out of Nana's room and they all stand up. Gould looks an easy two inches taller, as he does throughout the series. Gould claimed 6'2'' for his height, and what man is going to claim shorter than they really are? The logical conclusion from Gould's claim is that he is 6'2'' tops, this puts Schwimmer at 6'0'' tops. Then we've got Tom Selleck, and the shot of him in slippers, which more than likely give nothing more than a quarter of an inch, standing next to Schwimmer barefoot. It seems that people want to inflate Selleck to a full 6'4'' in order to keep Schwimmer at 6'1''. My first response to this would be that even if you do assume Selleck is a legit 6'4'', Schwimmer still isn't looking 6'1''. But secondly, Selleck himself has claimed 6'3.5'', and again, what man is going to claim to be shorter than they really are? 6'3.5'' is tops for Selleck. Trent did a great job illustrating the height differential between Selleck and Schwimmer, but I feel that he drew the line more at the top of Schwimmer's hair rather than at the top of his head; I'm not sure if he did this to make up for Schwimmer's footwear disadvantage, but even if he did, I still feel that the line was drawn too high. Schwimmer appears to come up to right about Selleck's eyeline. A further point, look how big Selleck's head is in comparison to Schwimmer's. I think it is rational to assume that Selleck's eyeline is more like 5 inches below the top of his head as opposed to the typical four inches. Now, some people have pointed out that Schwimmer's posture isn't the greatest. Okay, that's fine, give him another inch. He's still four inches shorter than the 6'3.5'' max Selleck.

And to be honest, I'm not even sure that Gould and Selleck are the heights they claim. Everyone seems to basically hand celebs the height they claim on a regular basis, when very very few men are actually honest about their height. The usual defense by the people claiming that such-and-such celeb is the height they say they are is something along the lines of, "Well, he has to be 6'4'' because he was two inches taller than such-and-such who's 6'2''." Well, again, the 6'2'' guy claims 6'2'', who's to say the guy is actually the height he claims when very few people are?

So there's got to be a starting point where you have to base a particular celeb's height based on his general impression. I would start by saying that I think Selleck is 6'3''. Most people just don't understand how tall a legit 6'3'' really is, I feel that it is very common for celebheighters to overestimate everyone they see on the street by an inch because 5'10'' usually gets labeled as average when statistics say that is 5'9'', and then everything gets thrown off by an inch from there. 6'3'' usually gets labeled as "weak very tall" when in fact, I believe it is solid very tall, and Selleck certainly gives this impression. People point to when he was younger and looked huge next to everyone else as evidence that he has to be 6'4''. But we need to bear in mind that average height back in the '70s was closer to 5'8'', so you could easily give off a 'huge' impression at 6'3''.

If Selleck is 6'3'', then Gould is 6'1'', and Schwimmer measures in at 5'11''. These 6'1'' estimates are a joke, the absolute most Schwimmer could be is a flat 6'0'', and that would be generous. David Schwimmer is 5'11''.
Dmeyer said on 20/Aug/14
If Perry is 181cm then he looked 183cm alot in friends
Amaze said on 16/Aug/14
I agree he is 185cm. 6'1 guy. looks 2 in taller than perry to me. tallest male actor on friends.
Borris said on 18/Apr/14
I would say he is 6ft to 6 1/2. He's only just taller than Matt Perry. No one is considering the footwear situations in these discussions or the camera angles. Elliot Gould is a clear 6 '2' and there is a clear inch and a half to two inches between him and Schwimmer!
John said on 14/Apr/14
184 or 185. He's a pretty tall guy.
James B said on 16/Mar/14
He can look a hair over 6'1 but yet not as tall as 6'2

6'1.5 (187) in the morning.

@shamrock: that's a surprise. I heard he can be pretty moody.
I agree with 6ft1
shamrock said on 25/Aug/13
Flight attendant alert : spot on. about 6'1. Tall and very nice.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/13
He looked 186cm next to Willis.

I think 6ft1 is a good shout for Schwimmer.
Clay said on 23/Jul/13
Always looked about 6'1'' in Friends.
Jamz said on 21/Jul/13
Always looked 6ft (at most) in Friends
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jun/13
@Matt

Elliot Gould was 6"2.5"(189cm) peak, IMO. He claimed both 6"2" and 6"3" and generally looked either of those figures. He looked 1-1.5in taller than Schwimmer on Friends, but he was in his 50s so it's likely he was still at his peak. He didn't tower over him by any means.

Selleck was 6"4"(193cm) so it's a no brainer that Schwimmer was considerably shorter than him. 3in is a noticeable amount, I'll have you know. There's no point debating his height.

I haven't seen the episode with John Allen Nelson. But I do remember him from Baywatch. He's listed at 6"1"(185cm) weirdly enough. But according to you, he was another guy that looked a lot taller than Schwimmer. He wasn't a lot shorter than Hasselhoff, so I think he could very well be around 6"2" or so.

Worst case scenario, Schwimmer is 6"0.75"(185cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jun/13
@Matt

Interesting, the guys you mentioned below.

- Gould was near 6"3 peak but only claimed 6"2. Rob therefore changed his peak. On Friends he looked maybe 1-1.5in taller than Schwimmer. I'd guess it was more of a case that Gould was 189cm at that point.

- Selleck was 6"4. So, Schwimmer being considerably shorter than him is not a huge shock. That goes for any 6"1 range guy.

- I havent seen the episode with John Allen Nelson. I know he's listed at 6"1(185cm) and I remember him from Baywatch. He was maybe 2in shorter than Hasselhoff. So he could be 6"2-6"3?
Matt said on 22/May/13
I'm currently watching 'The One Where Nana Dies Twice'. There's a scene in a hospital where Elliott Gould and Schwimmer stand up, side-by side, from a seated position. Gould clearly has a couple of inches on Schwimmer, and this was a more youthful, lean Gould than the later seasons.

Now this site has Gould at 6'1, or a peak 6'2. If that's the case, then the eyeball test on this episode would put Schwimmer at six feet, which actually seems about right. No shame in that -- six feet is an underestimated height, and will look tall to most people. The reality is that Schwimmer never came close to measuring up against guys who were legitimately 6'2+, whether Gould, Selleck, John Allen Nelson, etc.
Balrog said on 22/May/13
I think Perry at 5'11.5'' and Schwimmer at 6'0.75'' is perfect. He was eye to eye with Freddie Prinze Jr and about 2in taller than Willis.
Ash Navarre said on 15/May/13
Balrog says on 4/Feb/13
He could be just 6'0.5'' but a flat 6 feet don't think so.

Agree. With 5'11 Brad Pitt. I see 1 1/2 inches difference max.

lelman said on 30/Apr/13
Not a smidge below 6 foot, I saw him at a red carpet event (from a distance, of course) and he was definitely taller than me - I'm 5'11". 6'1" seems fair.
jamestux said on 28/Apr/13
I was a few seats away from him watching Kevin Spacey in Richard III a couple of years back - I had to stand to let him pass and it threw me that h was no taller than me (the girl I was with didn't believe it was him at first as he was my height or shorter) - I think I'm 5'11.
me said on 3/Mar/13
He has the face of a 7 footer. Longest pupil to top lip distance I've ever seen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/13
About 3in under Selleck who was probably still 6ft4 in the 90s. 185-186cm fits Schwimmer. At his tallest he can maybe look 2in taller than Matthew Perry
Balrog said on 4/Feb/13
He could be just 6'0.5'' but a flat 6 feet don't think so.
Dom said on 2/Feb/13
@ Trent, Schwimmer isn't even standing erect in that photo. You can see he's hunched slightly, his shoulders are dropped. He's too big for 6' even. He has a good 3-4cm on Matt Perry who is 5'11.5 and Selleck was probably still 6'4 even in 1997.
Trent said on 16/Jan/13
Schwimmer with Tom Selleck, who claimed 6'3.5 back in '87.

It's very briefly onscreen, but you can see there Selleck is actually in slippers--probably only taking 1/4" or so from them, but every bit counts. Later the scene cuts away though and this time you can see Selleck is barefoot now for some reason, but it seems when they were standing face-to-face like that Selleck did take a bit of footwear advantage.

I'd say, accounting for the footwear advantage Selleck takes, Schwimmer could be 6'0.25.

Actually, I saw that episode with Willis.
If Willis is/was 5ft11.5 (which is probable), Schwimmer looked 186-187cm

James he looked every bit of 6'1 (if not taller) assuming Bruce Willis was 5'11.5.
James said on 14/Nov/12
Didn't ltook as tall as 6'1 face too face with Bruce willis
Shaun said on 24/Oct/12
Well, I believed the 6 ft 2 listing for him watching Friends, he could look it with hair and clumpy shoes. The Tom Selleck barefoot comparison is the best "evidence" that he's somewhere between 6' and 6'1". Looked 184cm tops next to Gabrielle Reece in heels.

Can really look anywhere from 6ft to 6ft2. He's definitely got more than 1in on Perry who looks at least 5ft11.5/182cm.
Nicole said on 17/Aug/12
He's about 1.4-2 inches taller than Dylan Moran, who is said to be 5'11"

he has long legs which make him appear taller than he actually is (see Matt Smith) and needs a downgrade.

He always looked 6 foot 1. Big difference between him and matt le blanc. A little difference between him and perry. Pitt was slightly taller than joey. Bruce willis was shorter by about 2 inches.
Ace said on 17/Nov/11
His height has always confused me. In Friends he frequently appeared no more than an inch taller than 5'11.5 (give or take a half inch) Matthew Perry, but then suddenly has at least 2 inches on 5'11.5 Bruce Willis and 5'11 Brad Pitt. He ranges anywhere from 6'0.5 to 6'2 in photos. I would guess that 6'1 is probably closest however.
Shortish86 said on 9/Nov/11

lol 6'1.. with 6'1.5 listed jason lee he look 5'11.5 , with 174cm simon pegg he look 5'11.5 as well. some say jason lee was 6'1 in real which im not sure.. in the case of lee then schwimmer would be 5'11 tops. to me jason lee look 186cm and schwimmer 181-2cm. lifts and small head big hair helps him look taller. with 6'1.5 clive owen he look near becasue he had lifts on. people been fooled.. lol
Shaun said on 16/Oct/11
If you look on the measuring tape on "Celebs my height" 6'0.75" is about 184.8cm. I think 6'0.75 would be spot on for him. Its just Rob has 185cm at a full 6'1" when it isn't, so he's practically spot on. Schwimmer is 184-185 range in my view.
Shaun said on 14/Oct/11
Weak 6'1" though James. He could be 185cm but that is max.
James said on 8/Oct/11
I woulden't argue under 6ft for David

6'1 not a way. he was 5cm shorter than 186-187 jason lee in 1997 Kissing a Fool. 181-182cm. give illusion been 6'1 with small head.

Well Shaun Rob said himself that pegg could be 174cm....if Simon is 5'9 then i would say david bizzarley looks 5'10.

He never looks over 6ft in Friends. Strange.

Actually like James I always believed he was 6'2" as listed in Friends. He always wore clumpy shoes and his face and frame type definitely look 6'2" like as James said. I still think weak 6'1" barefoot, 184-85cm,

yeah shaun he has the head/face off a 6'2 guy. in reality though i think 6'0.5 (184cm) is closer for Schwimmers height. he's a tall looking 6'0-6'1.

Selleck even said he was 6'3.5" during Friends, if I remember correctly.
Anyways, 6'0.5" or weak 6'1" for Schwimmer is correct.

Tom selleck might be 6'3 today but in the early friends years he was without a doubt 6'4 flat so Schwimmer might be 186 with shoes but 184 barefoot. i'm 184 barefoot but with shoes i'm closer to 6'2

Rob G said on 2/Jul/09
Btw the difference between Perry and Schwimmer is often exagerrated, there is no 2 inches between the two, it is about one inch, since they tend to look similar in height in many Friends episodes, plus, as Doug mentioned before, in one episode it is clear that Perry in shoes is similar height/little taller then barefoot Schwimmer.
Rob G said on 1/Jul/09
Lets see...next to Gould he looks a weak 6'1" next to Selleck he looks a weak 6'1" next to Perry he looks a weak 6'1" hmm he is a weak 6'1" then, 185cm is his max, 187cm in shoes, yes.
Hugh 190cm said on 30/Jun/09
185cm minimum and 187cm Max. if Perry is 181cm.
Doug said on 27/Jun/09
Clay I'd fully agree on the 5'8.5" for Le Blanc. 5'9" max.He always had a footwear advantage over Perry who often seemed to wear sneakers. So Le Blanc at 5'8.5"-5'9" and Perry at 5'11.5-6' is about right.
Doug said on 27/Jun/09
Not as much as 4.5" I initially got that impression too, but 3.5" certainly. The 6'1" listing is certainly questionable when stood next to Selleck barefoot. If Selleck is a solid 6'4", Schwimmer is between 6' and 6'1". Schwimmer actually looks like a former boyfriend of one of my sisters, very similar in height having seen him barefoot and he was a flat 6'. Personaly I think Schwimmer is more 6'0.5". Clay, how tall do I think Le Blanc is? Having seen him barefoot next to Perry and Aniston, he is struggling with a solid 5'9" I think. I think he is a very similar height to Sylvester Stallone barefoot, possibly 5'8.5"-5'9". Don't buy 5'9.5" or over for him but he can strangely sometimes look 5'11" in his clumpy shoes (like Stallone). Remember the Elle Macpherson scenes? He wasn't much shorter, not three inches. Either Elle isn't a legit 6' or something is wrong. He wears clumpy shoes to look taller, maybe he was wearing lifts in scenes with her? . Oh and stood next to 5'9" listed Paul Rudd (who I thought was 5'10") I could see Le Blanc at 5'9"-5'9.5". I then found out that Rudd is only 5'9" flat so Le Blanc has to be shorter as there was roughly 0.5-1 inch height difference between them. I would therefore estimate Blanc's height at 174cm. If Rudd is more 5'9.5" which I could elieve than a flat 5'9" for Le Blanc would seme plausible. Either way Rudd was 0.5-1 inch taller than le Blanc stood side by side yet Le Blanc is listed as being 0.5" taller than Rudd!! It is the other way round I swear!
Rob G said on 25/Jun/09
I've seen 3.5" difference in that scene
Ray said on 25/Jun/09
In that barefoot scene with Selleck if you take away the hair, Schwimmer only comes up to Selleck's eye line. Its more than 3" difference. I would argue 6' for Schwimmer....quite possibly under. Maybe I was getting a weird camera angle but eyeline is about 4.5".
Clay said on 24/Jun/09
Doug - what do you think Le Blanc is? I think on the show he wore bigger shoes to compensate, but still always looked 2 inches under Perry. He could be just 5'8.5.
Doug said on 24/Jun/09
Clay I agree. Minimum 5'11.5" for Perry. Another 5'11.5 guy who claims the 6'1" and often comes close in shoes.
Clay said on 23/Jun/09
Perry is like a weak 6'0 more than anything, a solid 5'11.5 t his lowest. Schwimmer is comfertably at 6'1''.
Ace said on 15/Jun/09
One thing that supports Schwimmer's 6`1, is that he was at most, 3 inches shorter than Tom Selleck when they faced off barefoot in that Friends episode.
Doug said on 14/Jun/09
Yup I would put Schwimmer at 6'0.5" and Perry at 5'11.75".
Doug said on 14/Jun/09
See what I mean about how tall Matthew Perry looks. Look at the height difference between Aniston and Schwimmer. DOoes anybody really see a 8 inch height difference? ALl I know is that Matthew Perry is taller in shoes than a barefoot Schwimmer as seen on Friends.

Doug said on 21/May/09
In general I see a minimum 2 inch height difference between Gould and Schwimmer.
Doug said on 21/May/09
Rob G exactly. Schwimmer is struggling with a flat 6'1" barefoot more like a 6'0.5". Watch the scene in Friends where Tom Selleck and David Schwimmer are standing face to face and you can see their feet. There is roughly a 3.5 inch height difference between them. Anybody who thinks Schwimmer was a strong 6'1"-6'2" compared to both Selleck and Gould is crazy. 6'1" MAX +clumpy shoes = strong 6'2" impression. Funny thing is Gould looked an easy 3 inches tall than Schwimmer even when he was wearing his standard clumpy shoes. My money's on Schwimmer at 184cm, Selleck at 192cm.
Rob G said on 21/May/09
Thanks Ace, just watched these scenes from episode 13 season 7, indeed Schwimmer is not dwarfed or anything, but I must say that throughout the scenes there is about 1" or 1,5" between Gould and Schwimmer, maybe more on 1 inch difference (Schwimmer's hairstyle is much more puffy though). Still I see Schwimmer at a weak 6'1".
Ace said on 20/May/09
Rob G, in Friends, when Elliot Gould and David Schwimmer were in a basement together, and have just realized they have accidentally destroyed all of Monica's old stuff, there is a scene where they are frantically looking around, and they actually did look very close in height.
Rob G said on 20/May/09
Well in Friends I saw a visible difference between Gould and Schwimmer, at very least 1 inch. Actually I also do not recall any episode where they looked the same height. Besides 6'4" Tom Selleck towered over Schwimmer in their barefoot scene. I can buy Schwimmer at 6'1", but nothing over, and probably he is a weak 6'1"er
Hugh 190cm said on 19/May/09
Actually Schwimmer looked similar in height to a now 6ft2ish Elliot gould.
Hugh 190cm said on 19/May/09
hmmmm. Keanu Reeves is a solid 6ft1 guy. 184cm is definately too low. I'd say Reeves and Schwimmer are 186cm respectively.
Rob G said on 14/May/09
Yep, IMO Schwimmer is a tall guy, but not as tall as 6'2", and probably not even a solid 6'1", more like a weak 6'1",I think.

Schwimmer is about the same height as Keanu Reeves I think, a strong 6', weak 6'1" more like 6'0.5" (184cm).
Doug said on 7/May/09
6'3"?? LOL. He was dwarfed by legit 6'3" Elliot Gould and 6'3.5" Tom Selleck. The man is little over 6' 6'-6'1" barefoot, 6'2" in shoes MAX! Check out the pics with him and David WIlliams who is a legit 6'2"er. Schimmer is 184cm.
Anonymous said on 30/Apr/09
malone 6ft3 is a bit extreme. 6ft2 is possible. Personally I'd put Schwimmer at 6ft1-6ft1.5. In shoes I'm sure Dave could reach 6ft3 no problem. But barefoot he's 187cm.
malone said on 30/Apr/09
i claim schwimmer is a solid 6'3
Doug said on 24/Apr/09
Yep he gets a noticeable height boost in shoes alright Ian. Thats why he can look 6'2". Without shoes likely 6'0.5".
Doug said on 24/Apr/09
Actually Selleck doesn't "dwarf" Schwimmer. Thats a bit of an over statement. I see 3-3.5" height difference definately not near 5 inches. If Selleck is a legit 6'4" barefoot, then I think it easily possible that Schwimmer is a legit 6'1". If I was to hazard a guess though I'd guess Schwimmer was 6'0.5" and Selleck 6'3.5".
Doug said on 24/Apr/09
I've been watching Friends lately on E4 and have been watching Schwimmer closely. The more I watch it the more I increasingly think he is little or nothing over 6 flat. He was dwarfed by Elliot Gould by some three to four inches, and was dwarfed by Tom Selleck by four to five inches if he was a legit 6'1" the difference wouldn't have been so great. I've seen a number of scenes with him in his socks and he looks exactly like a 6 dead on the mark guy, especially next to Selleck. I think his real height is 6'0 or 6'0.5". I think he is 184cm and this adds up next to Walliams etc. Funny thing is before I learned of "Hollywood inches" I used to believe that he was 6'2". The more you watch the more you can see he is 6 flat and clearly not 6'2" compared to Gould and Selleck, this looks laughable. Remember in Friends he mostly had bouffed hair which makes him look taller. A weak 6'1" is his max out of bed I reckon I bet he barely scrapes the 6' mark by evening. I'd list him at 6'0"-6'0.5". Interesting Ian I hadn't seen Schwimmer next to the door panel. Yes it was me who left that comment on Sellecks page that he was an inch above the 6'3" panel. If Schwimmer was 3 inches below it barefoot then we have his real height at 6'0". What do you think Rob. Is it more likely Schwimmer is not quite 6'1"
peteyork said on 21/Apr/09
well if your english he is 6ft, with simon pegg, wailliams, jonathan ross he never looks 6'1 never mind 6'2. any chance of dropping him to 6ft 1/2 inch rob?
photos with 5'9 pegg would put him at 6ft, inch shorter, perhaps inch and a half shorter than Ross and 2 1/2 inches under walliams. He rounds up to 6'1 at the very least, or is measured straight out of bed.
Ian said on 17/Apr/09
Schwimmer looked small with his shoes off in that episode with Selleck. I say he looks 6ft compared to the door. As others pointed out on Sellecks page, the top panel on the door is 6ft3 and that is where selleck reaches but Schwimmer is 3 inches short of that top panel of the door with his shoes off.

With his shoes off Schwimmer he looks short and looks a pale version of himself with the shoes on which suggest he is getting some noticeable height increase via his footwear. No way is he 6ft2 or 6ft3 like Ace thinks. I think also 6ft1 is out of the question compared to other famous 6ft1 people like Jason Lee(6ft1.5 and people are debating him as shorter than this on his page), Schwimmer looks noticeably shorter.

What has Schwimmer claimed himself?

Ian, Matt Leblanc may have suspicious footwear, it certainly wouldn't be the first time

Can look 6ft2. Personally I'd say 186-187cm and about 185lbs.
Ian said on 5/Apr/09
Perry is slouching as he looks same height as le blanc ACE.
Rob G said on 4/Apr/09
I think Rob's listning is spot on.
Rob G said on 1/Apr/09
Schwimmer's heigh listed here is about right, may be even dead on.

But glenn do you think Alec is actually 6ft1?
glenn said on 20/Mar/09

Schwimmer looked the same height if not shorter than Alec Baldwin. It shows that Baldwin is a serious lift wearer. Both barefoot I'd say Schwimmer is 2 inches taller than Baldwin.
Ace said on 17/Mar/09
Anyway, he looks about 1.5-2 inches taller than perry here: Click Here

Ian, do you see the way schwimmer is standing? Jason lee is standing straight, and schwimmer has his legs twisted, and is leaning in.

I bet there more than 1.4" heels I can see a pair of doc martin style shoes those add typically 1.3- 1.4" at the back on the edge of the carpet and schwimmers look twice as big plus they are not lace ups these are straps which points to lift wearing as you can see his foot raised going into the metatarsal area of the foot, it looks bulging out as if wearing raised lifts though I admit he could have a bulky fat foot some people do. I just can't see him being 6ft2 when he is smaller than Jason Lee by about 2 inches and Jason Lee is 6ft1.5
In kissing the fool there is several scenes where schwimmer is clearly smaller some where he looks the same height but you don't see their feet. The notiable ones are when schwimmer is on the kerb and jason lee is on the road and there are the same height. So Schwimmer is a kerb height smaller than jason lee. Another in Jason Lee house towards end of film where scwimmer looks 3-4 inches smaller than Jason Lee.

And Walliams is 6ft2 a strong 6ft2. He also states he is and he is clearly taller than schwimmer by a couple of inches. Brits also state height without shoes so I'm inclined to believe him more than an American who more than 9times out 10 state heights with shoes on.

David Walliams sorry is clearly taller than 6'2". He is almost as tall as 6'4" listed guys like James Cracknell and Vernon Kay. Walliams is nearer 6'3" without a doubt.
Doug said on 8/Mar/09
One thing is clear. Schwimmer has an easy 4 inches on 5'9" LeBlanc. I was watching it yesterday and Schwimmer was completely relaxed in posture and still had 4 inches on him. I would say 6'1" peak barefoot, 6'2" in shoes. Schwimmer has never been a legit 6'2" barefoot, these days looks around 6'0.5" to me.

I doubt Ian that those shoes add 2 inches. Rob, out of curiousness, about how much would you guess those shoes add?

[Editor Rob: I'd say 1.4, that looks like a shoe where the top most part of the heel is above the highest part of the insole.

It's like Nike Free's. Looking at them you think 1.25 inch, but they are a bit concave inside and give more 1 inch...]

He's quite close to 6ft2 rob? an upgrade maybe. 186cm.
Ian said on 5/Mar/09
The example Rob G is a good one just because he is tall than average doesn't mean he doesn't wear lifts to gain a bit more height. I forgot to put my name in below. Anon was me. If doc. martins can give 1.5" then certain those chunky footwear he has there is given about 2" it's about 1" at the front. Next to true 6f2" guys he is looks no more than 6ft. David Walliams a strong 6ft2 has him owned.

Look at his shoes Bam. There are massive. I've been saying this all along he wears massive shoes in friends always. The man is no where near 6'2. He's about 6ft2 in his shoes yes but not 6ft2 bearfoot. Those shoes look like 2inches of heel.
Rob G said on 5/Mar/09
Well of course it is silly, but it doesn't mean it is impossible,for example John Wayne, a very tall guy wearing lifts. I think that Schwimmer indeed makes use of chunky footwear at times, even though he is over 6'0"
bam said on 28/Feb/09
wears lifts? Thats silly. The man is close to 6'2, and has a choice for ugly clunky footwear.
Ian said on 24/Feb/09
Here is Schwimmer in his ever so chunky footwear. Look at the heel on these compare that with regular shoes(upper edge of red carpet). He has more lift on the front of his shoes than regular shoes do at the back. These are what he wears on a lot of occasions in friends too. I posted the screenshot from friends he had shoes like this on with massive chunks of grip and big chucky lifts.

It would't surprise me if Schwimmer wears lifts. I also see him in shoes mostly in friends and on the occasions he is wearing trainers in friends he looks Chandler's height. Le blanc wears trainers a lot and in the one in barbados he wears flipflops and is just about Aisha tylers height who plays charlie(6ft she says. I dont see it for her because Joey is around the same height wearing flipflops ). Charlie is wearing flipflops and is not much under Ross who is wearing his shoes again.
Clay said on 22/Feb/09
Its not easy to judge because he was either beside someone who is kinda tall in his own (Perry, at 5'11.5) or an average guy who was jacked up on lifts (Le Blanc, standing close to 6'0 in his ''boots'').
Rob G said on 21/Feb/09
That"s why he is probably the heigh listed here, or a tad under. He never strucked me as a legit 6'2" guy, especially next to Elliot Gould or Tom Selleck. One thing is certain that he is 6'0" plus, if I were to guess I would say 6'0.75"
