Originally, the character [in I-Spy] was a basketball player and I was like, 'No, no, no, let's make this guy a boxer! ' Cause, first of all, I'm only five foot 10 inches. I'm not going to be able to make you think I'm the best basketball player that ever existed and I can't play basketball.'

After so much laughter, and still not having been to deplete my bladder, I think I need to watch something sensible….

I’ve just been forwarded on to some of Eddie Murphy’s funniest moments.

Believe me, they’re worth seeing!

James (179cm) Jones said on 23/Mar/23
I'd give Eddie 5'9 3/4 for his peak height (177.5cm) and nowadays he's about 5'9 1/4 or 1/8 (175 or 176cm)
Malcolm Oliver said on 20/Jan/23
Him and MJ look close, one could argue Michael is a solid 5’9 too
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 16/Sep/22
You've put trading places twice Rob lol. Maybe my name is dolemite is worth adding, he still looks like a solid 5'9 guy in that. He might not have lost any height yet.
192cm Leprechaun said on 11/Sep/22
He was listed at 5'9" for years though I always thought 5'8". He turned down Who Framed Roger Rabbit? 1988 and Goodfellas 1990.
ADAM VARCO said on 19/Aug/22
In the 1980's he was listed as 5'11". He was only a couple inches shorter at most than Dan Aykroyd in Trading Places. I think he was 5'10.5" peak, and like 5'9.5" today.
Carlos Santana said on 17/May/22
I think he's a perfect example of a 5'9.25"(176cm) guy.
Lawrence099 said on 10/May/22
Definitely not 5’7, at least 5’9 range, look at pics of him with 5’9 jamie foxx they look to edge one another depending on the photo.He could be 5’9.25 just like Jamie foxx could also be 5’9.25 as well but that’s as high as they’d be.Admittedly Murphy has looked a weak 5’9 in the past as with nick nolte, though I don’t think he’d quite be that low.
Rich Paul said on 23/Apr/22
He’s no more than 5-7. His girlfriend Page is supposedly 5-5. Check out photos of them together where he’s barely two inches taller when she wears sandals and he has on running shoes.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 18/Mar/22
Eddie Murphy: 5’9 1/4”
Jamie Foxx: 5’9”

I think these two actors are perfectly listed.
Slongino2 said on 26/Feb/22
Hey Rob, if I’m comparing 2 people together to see which person is taller, would a back to back measurement be more accurate? And if so, would I determine the taller person based on how tall their shoulders are or heads?
Editor Rob
Always look at top of heads. If it's really close and you have a ruler or something flat, you can have people back to back with the object on their heads. It will be easy to tell who is taller, even if very close.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 7/Feb/22
Is 5'9.5 possible Rob? I thought he only looked two inches shorter than 5'11.5 Steve Martin in bowfinger.
Editor Rob
Sometimes a strong 5ft 9 could seem plausible.
toddd0461 said on 28/Dec/21
Very strong 5'9 or weak 5'10. Looks in the 176-177 range.
Rising174cm said on 21/Nov/21
I think Eddie Murphy is right between the 5'9"-5'9.5" range Brigitte Nielsen gave so 176 cm is perfect. He could sometimes look just 5'9", but also 5'9.5". Jamie Foxx would be very similar to Murphy. Same thing with the 174-175 cm range she gave for Stallone.

It's funny because in general, I find women are often way off judging height, but these tall actresses seem to be very good at it. Same thing with the 5'9" figure Sigourney Weaver gave for Mel Gibson and the 5'10" figure Daniel Craig's co-star gave.
berta said on 20/Nov/21
his possible range is from 175,5-177 cm. I thinkif he is measrued he would be able to get around 176,4 ish. almost 5´9 1/2
Robbie Murphy said on 29/Aug/21
Hey rob you should do a a shoe height on the air max 2090s at night I measure around 5’8 1/2 and walk around 5’9-5’9 1/4 I always wear air maxes have good posture and long fluffy hair so I could easily pass for 5’10. We measured each other in cms in my chemistry class I got measured with my air max 2090s on and my friend didn’t push my hair down and I got 183. They add more then the air max 97s I would have to say they add 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 inches
Editor Rob
2090's I will do in September, but 97's might have to wait a while.
MaskDeMasque said on 14/Jul/21
Yea he's more than a flat 5'9. 5'9.5 is arguable for Eddie. I'll settle with 5'9.25 though.
177cm said on 17/Jun/21
Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx are two 5’9” guys who’ve make people look shorter than their listings the most
Danimal 176.7cm said on 22/May/21
Eddie was a LEGIT 5'10" (as he claimed on RAW). Here he is next to 5'10" (could have been 5'10.5") Mike Tyson in his prime:

Rob what do you think is the height of his ex wife Nicole Murphy? Seems like a statuesque woman herself and I'm thinking at least 177cm
Editor Rob
Nicole claimed 5ft 10 quite a lot on twitter.
C: The Height Analyzer said on 19/Jan/21
He looks 5'11'' - 6' here with 6'4'' Louis Gossett, Jr. (who was 46 years old at the time).

I think Eddie Murphy has to be at least 5'10."
Sinclair said on 14/Aug/20
Murphy gets 5’9.25” from me. 5’9.5” for Murphy would not be a ridiculous listing either. In Trading Places, I could not see as much as a three inch height difference between Murphy and 6’1” listed Dan Aykroyd!
Blanc said on 9/Aug/20
Looks to have very good proportions
Nearly 180cm guy said on 18/Jun/20
I found two other photos of Eddie with Steve Martin from 1999 from this event: Click Here Click Here
Steve was 54 at the time, but I don't know if he could lose anything noticeable then. Rob, do you still see the chance that Eddie could be 5ft 9.5 about 20 years ago?
Editor Rob
I don't know about a full 5ft 9.5, although in bowfinger he could seem 2 inches smaller than Steve.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 15/Jun/20
I can't believe Eddie will be 60 soon! He always seemed young to me! When it comes to its peak height, I think 5ft 9.5 would be a good estimate. In 1999, Eddie looked no more than 2 inches shorter than Steve Martin, in some photos even a little less than 2 inches: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Rob, you once said that Eddie in the 80's and 90's could sometimes look like 177 cm. Do you agree that 5ft 9.5 may be that he measured at the time?
Jkiller said on 15/Apr/20
No doubt he's a perfect 176cm.

🎊🎁🎈🎂 Happy Birthday Eddie! 🎂🎈🎁🎊

A Very Happy Birthday to funnyman Eddie Murphy, who turns 59 today. He certainly doesn't look it!

5ft10. 😃👍

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Jan/20
What a wonderful find, and an instant pick-me-up! Eddie is conversing with a huge tiger,🐅 who's about to undergo an operation! I was channel-hopping and I found this by mistake. (Doctor Dolittle) How I wish I'd seen it from the beginning....🐯

I used to think Eddie was much taller, but he's a giant in the comedy stakes! You don't need to be tall for that - just ask Dudley Moore and Ronnie Corbett! Well, if these diamond geezers were still alive, I'm sure they'd have told you so!
(RIP 😘🕯️😘🕯️ - to both comedians).

Eddie gets five foot nine-and-a-half and a huge "THANK YOU!" for making people so very happy! 😄🤗😂

seinfeld is closer to 5'10,25 today and was 5'10,75
MrPete said on 27/Jul/19
Eddie looks only about an inch shorter than 5'11 Jerry Seinfeld in "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee". Similar footwear although Murphy could be sneaking some lifts in there.
Canson said on 5/May/19
@Bora: yea on tv they can look a bit taller. Another example is Dave Chapelle. He looks taller on his show than he really is
Bora said on 3/May/19
He looks more more taller like 6 feet or 6'1" in his stand up show in 1987, maybe he used to wear elevator shoes or something
billionaireslayer said on 23/Mar/19
Weak 5'8 max possible strong 5'7 range, he looked small in the early 80's in Beverly Hills Cop and 48hrs compared to Nolte and no where near in height to Dan Aykroyd in trading places or Sam Jackson in Coming to America. Even Tower Heist he barley looked taller than Broderick.
berta said on 9/Mar/19
176 i the best listing. 175-176,5 is all possible.

Looked atleast 176 with malcom mcdowel who was maybe was 5ft8 in 2002 Click Here
James Keffer said on 20/Dec/18
@Robby Harris of course he wore lifts. If he didn't wear lifts, that would make Tyson like 174 cm whch he was obviously over that.
Robby Harris said on 14/Dec/18
@Rob: Do you suspect Murphy may have worn lifts on occasion? He has looked taller than he should at times and does seem somewhat height-conscious...
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Nov/18
@Canson: I use to think Tyson was probably a bit over 5'10" flat, maybe even 5'10.5" in the 80's, but seeing how he looked on video with Murphy and on Who's the Boss with 5'9" Tony Danza makes me think he really was the 5'10" flat Rob saw and the photo made him look taller. Murphy is all over the place at times, but I agree he's about 5'9" or a bit over. Brigitte Nielsen's 5'9"-5'9.5" makes perfect sense to me so I split the difference and go with Rob's listing. 5'9"-5'9.25" range puts him about the same height as Jamie Foxx and that makes sense. Murphy may have just edged him out at his own tribute 6 years ago: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Murphy appeared to be wearing dress shoes: Click Here They were also really close at the Golden Globes, but I'd have guessed Jamie taller then if anything.
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Rising: you said it well with regards to Tyson. He’s defintely a real 5’10” peak if not a hair over and likely still near enough 5’10” today if he goes under at all. I think Rob has Murphy pretty well pegged. Maybe he’s a flat 5’9”. I know seeing him with Martin Lawrence in both Life and in Boomerang, as well as David Alan Grier, 5’9” range looks pretty reasonable
Canson said on 24/Oct/18
Best gauge of his height was in Boomerang or Life with Martin Lawrence
James Keffer said on 16/Oct/18
@Rising Eddie only looked 0.5 inches taller than Michael there at most. In wuzupwitu, they were around the same height although Michael's wig hid hid his scalp from the front but from the sides, it's noticeable.
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Oct/18
@James Keffer: Now I definitely agree with your range for Eddie as I'm still fairly certain he's in that 5'9"-5'9.5" range, but he's definitely not shorter or taller than the range you gave. I still think Eddie would be slightly taller than Michael, but considering my minimum for Murphy is the same as the max I give Michael, I can't say it's impossible. But Michael had some type of Cuban heel or cowboy boot again on Arsenio and Murphy looked slightly taller to me: Click Here If Murphy did have a lift in a shoe that still looked flat, then it probably wouldn't give much or any more than a regular cowboy boot.
James Keffer said on 13/Oct/18
@Rising Michael also appeared to be wearing flats at the Sammy Davis JR event but yet Eddie barely looks taller. Eddie also looks taller than Mike Tyson (as you mentioned) which makes me believe that it was extremely likely Eddie was wearing lifts making it likely that Jackson and Murphy are the around the same height. Click Here Jackson looks slightly taller than Murphy with cowboy boots and in the pics from that photoshoot where Eddie looks taller, Michael is bending his knees. Based on those to photos, it is likely that Jackson and Murphy are around the same height. Anyways, 5'8.75-5'9.5 is all I'll give Murphy for now.
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Oct/18
@James Keffer: Murphy's shoes look flat, but he might have since I suspected that with Mike Tyson, whom we know is about 5'10". I've seen some later pics of Murphy promoting Shrek where he has really thick footwear that might have lifts. I still think Murphy's actual minimum is 5'9" and max is 5'9.5", but he can honestly look anywhere form 5'8.5" to over 5'10".
James Keffer said on 6/Oct/18
@Rising - 174 cm 177 does seem impossible or at least extremely unlikely. 5'9.5 (176.5) seems to be the absolute max. When you compare Eddie Murphy to celebs other than MJ, you can tell that 54'9.5 is the absolute max for Murphy. The minimum seems around 5'8.75 for Murphy. Click Here I am starting to think Murphy wore lifts here and even so, Michael could have the slight edge in that photoshoot Click Here and I think Murphy's lifts there make his footwear the same height as Michael's cowboy boots, if not, a hair taller.
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Oct/18
He's not as tall as 177 cm and 176 is probably as close as you'll get. Remember, Antonio Banderas and Cameron Diaz are about 5'8": Click Here Click Here Click Here and Mike Myers is a short guy at no more than 5'7": Click Here Click Here Even Antonio's thick-heeled black boots would still only make him look like a 5'9"-5'10" range man and Diaz isn't going to measure more than 5'11" in those heels, if that. You can give Antonio the 174 cm Rob lists him and Eddie still isn't looking near 5'11" in shoes that day. Chris Rock might be 177 cm, but I think the 5'10" Rob gives him is probably fine, though he was taller than Eddie at this event: Click Here And look at how massive another Rock looked next to Eddie last year at the beginning and end of this video: Click Here and this pic: Click Here I doubt Rock is taller these days than the 6'2.5" Rob gives him, but he's easily got 5" on Eddie. Murphy was 55 in that comparison, but I doubt that has much to do with it because Nick Nolte made it very clear he was only 6'0" and he consistently had around 3" on Eddie throughout both 48 Hrs. films and as I said, Eddie wouldn't have had to inflate Brigitte Nielsen's height by 2" if he was basically his 5'10" claim.
James Keffer said on 29/Sep/18
@Robby Harris I think Michael was wearing lifts at the Sammy Davis special also.
James Keffer said on 29/Sep/18
I think he was 5'9.75. He looks the exact same height as Nichole Murphy, He appears half an inch taller than Michael Jackson and He looks just under an inch taller than Mike Tyson with 1 inch lifts.
Littlelee168cm said on 26/Sep/18
How tall would his daughter bria be Rob? I'm seeing 5ft 3 listings but she towered over Ashley tisdale and was a bit taller than Janet Montgomery in the escorts. Possibly 5ft 7 range
Editor Rob
I think Eddie looked 3 inches taller than her. Might be somewhere in 5ft 6-6.5 range.

Murphy beside 6'1.5" Will Smith in 2007:

I can see at least 3" between them, but no more than 3.5" max. Smith is easily in the 6'1"-6'1.5" range, imo, perhaps trending towards the latter. They were both still obviously at their peak heights 10 years ago, and I'd surely doubt any shrinkage occurred for either of them at that point anyway. Smith is still a bit young to have currently lost anything, while Murphy might have dropped a fraction.

Click Here

Murphy with Mike Tyson at the Sammy Davis special in 1989, Video:
Click Here

Murphy at that same event, but with Michael Jackson, Video:
Click Here

He appears to be at least the same height as Tyson, if not a little taller, yet he only looks slightly taller than Jackson. So if we assume he wore lifts at the event, then we'd have to assume he'd be no taller than Jackson without them on. However, I'm very certain Murphy was taller than Jackson, as Jackson didn't seem to appear any taller than him at best with cowboy boots on, while Murphy had on low-heeled dress shoes at another event in the late 80's:
Click Here

This is a pretty strong indication that Murphy couldn't have snuck in any lifts at the Sammy Davis event, unless we assume he also snuck in lifts at the AMA awards ceremony with Jackson, which I highly doubt. It can't go both ways!
Robby Harris said on 6/Aug/18
I'm more inclined to believe 5'9.5" than 5'9.25" for Murphy. He edged out 5'10" Tyson at the Sammy Davis Jr. special in '89. His footwear didn't look suspicious to me either. They were very low-heeled casual dress shoes. I'm certainly not dismissing the possibility that he may have snuck in a lift, but its not exactly conclusive that he did. He's looked 5'10" other times too, albeit rarely. Of course its difficult to see him over 176 cm with Nolte, but I'd say he likely had the edge on Jamie Foxx. Despite the variations, I'd say 177 cm is slightly more likely.
Canson said on 31/Jul/18

Rob could you do an entry for Eddie's ex-wife Nicole? Also how tall do you think she is since she seems considerably taller than Eddie in heels? I've read articles claiming she's 5ft10 and 5ft11
Editor Rob
She consistantly said 5ft 10
Toast said on 28/Feb/18
This is such a joke. My dad met him 20 years ago and said he was incredibly tiny. Since my dad is 5’10, I’m guessing a lot of people here are talking out of their rear ends. The dude is lucky if he’s 5’6”.
Monkey knees said on 18/Jan/18
5'9 nowadays is spot on.
Tarinator 6'1.75 said on 11/Jan/18
Looks a good 5’9”-5’9.5” range guy to claim somewhere around 176-177 cm. I would say he isn’t smaller than your listing of him but I would totally consider 5’9.5” as his height too.
berta said on 1/Jan/18
Hey guys; how can we even be so sure that Glenn is really the 5'8" he claims? He might be an inch shorter, which would skew all of his celebrity sightings in their favor.

[Editor Rob: maybe I'll hop on a flight to NY, track Glenn down and measure him to within a mm ;)]

haha that guy was right :P I think murpshy is/was about 176
Editor Rob
I had to be careful with comments submitted to the site questioning glenn's height, but certainly he did end up getting to within 1mm 3 years later!
Mark172cm said on 20/Dec/17
@Rob: Could 177 cm range be possible for Murphy? Considering he pulled off looking the same height as Mike Tyson in the late 80's: Click Here
Editor Rob
sometimes he looked it, but overall I've stuck him on that 176 mark for a fair long while, I still think it fits with most of what I've seen.
Lola said on 16/Oct/17
177 cm imo
Dome173 said on 14/Oct/17
He is similar height as 181cm Rick James. And close to his brother Charlie who is listed as 185. So my guess would be that he isn't anything beneath 177 cm.
Fred Baxter said on 11/Sep/17
Look at Eddie Murphy next to Paige Butcher who is listed as 5'5" inches. If she is 5'5" Murphy is no taller than 5'6". There are plenty of images of them walking together side by side with the same type of shoes on. Murphy never appears any taller than Paige Butcher. One image of them at a premiere she has on a blue dress and 5" heels and she looks 5" taller than him.
tree said on 3/Sep/17
Rob why google has him at 175cm?Ediie claimed 5ft10 not 5ft9 and i think he looks a bit over 175 like 176cm.
Editor Rob
he can look 175-6 range, sometimes I think in the 80's and 90's could pull off 176cm more often.
Jug said on 19/Aug/17
Claimed 5'10 in Raw, I think. I would say 5'9. Nolte looked at least three inches taller in both films, but he was wearing cowboy boots. He generally looks 5'9 next to 6 footers, like with Steve Martin in Bowfinger.
Canson said on 9/Aug/17

errybodyshutup said on 21/Jul/17
does being black and balad mean you an extra 1/4 inch?
Editor Rob
being bald or very close 1-2 guard hairstyle means there's at least no guessing where the top of the head is.

Hairstyles still add an element of guesswork to height estimations. I'm glad we don't have big 80's hairdo's around these days!

at least 5'9"
Mark(5'9.25") said on 3/Jul/17
Not surprised he claimed 5'10"

5'9.5" bang on. He wasnt under 176 cm in his prime.
Cameron said on 18/Jun/17
176 was probably fair in his prime, but he is in his 50's now so I think he's trending towards 5'9" flat or just under.
Canson said on 15/Jun/17
5'9. Wasn't much taller than Martin Lawrence was really
S.J.H said on 8/Jun/17
Brigitte Nielsen comments: "Eddie [Murphy] says that he's 5-10 and he says that I'm 6-2. I think that the real thing is that I'm 6 feet tall and Eddie's maybe 5-9 and a half."

I think eddie murphy does look close to 177cm compare most of his co-star. 5'9.5 a shout!
Canson said on 4/Jun/17
5'9 ish wasn't much taller than Martin Lawrence
Charlie said on 29/May/17
Eddie Murphy was 3 inches shorter than John Ashton in Beverly Hills Cop. Rob is posed with John Ashton and he has him listed as 5'9 although i do see him looking shorter than Rob by Half an inch which would make John Ashton 5'7 1/2.Lets say John Ashton is 5'9. Eddie Murphy has got to be at least 5'6 to 5'7.John Ashton towered over Eddie.If you look for John Ashton's height on Celebheights you will see he appears shorter than Rob.I am going to say Eddie Murphy is between 5'6 to 5'7.
Editor Rob
you could be onto something there Charlie!
RisingForce said on 23/May/17
Eddie definitely wasn't over 5'9.5" and probably not taller than 176 cm either. Legit 6'0" Nick Nolte made Eddie look 175 cm in 48 Hrs.. Here, he's even making Eddie look more 5'8"! Click Here More recently, he can look about the same as Jamie Foxx, who admitted he was only 5'9", as well as a 5'8" guy like Antonio Banderas when he wore his heels and at times, Eddie didn't even look that much taller than a short guy like Mike Myers. Rob's listing is perfect, imo, but it's not impossible Murphy is/was only a flat 5'9" either, but I wouldn't go any lower. Murphy did oddly look as tall as 5'10" Mike Tyson, but it's not unlikely Eddie has tried bigger shoes, perhaps even lifts since he seems pretty height conscious.

I'll give Eddie his proper comment and estimate now that I've cooled down.
Eddie has played some wonderful comic parts over the years and I love his sense of humour! He can also do serious acting parts very well, but I like his nutty parts the best!
I thought he was nearer to 5ft10 myself, having seen him standing with Mel B.
I shall give Eddie 5ft9.5, and my heart-felt sympathy for losing his precious brother.
Richardspain said on 23/Apr/17
175/176 cm not more not less.

At movies "48h"you can see Nick is a bit taller than Eddy. Nick looked 182 cm and with boots he looked 185cm, eddy looked 175cm with shoes 177cm.

This is my opinion guys.

Adijos said on 21/Mar/17
5'9.75" (177 cm) is his real height.
HonestSlovene said on 30/Jan/17
Was never over 5'9"/175 cm IMHO. Judge Reinhold, who was 6'1.5" peak ( as of 2017 as he met Rob has legitimately shrunk to 6'1" now) had him in Beverly Hills Cop by a minimum of 4.5 inches.
James said on 25/Jan/17
Rob, what exactly made you disregard his claim of 5ft 10?
A 171cm male said on 16/Jan/17
Looks 5'8" on film 48hrs. .
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Jan/17
Yes, he is on my TV screen right now and standing next to 6ft4 or so Jeff Goldblum! (NOT a good idea, Eddie!)
So I won't quibble with the height written here!
I loved Eddie as 'Donkey' in the 'Shrek' funny!
John Givens said on 2/Jan/17
I'd say 5'9 ish sounds right
Frank said on 1/Jan/17
177cms in peak and now around 175.

Murphy never looked really short and in a lot of times he was with tall actors style 6'-6'3".

Decent height in my opinion.
ArthurJohn said on 25/Nov/16
He looked the same height as Mike Tyson at the Sammy Davis Jr. Special in 1989. In fact, I'd say he appeared to slightly edge Tyson out if anything. His height could be all over the place sometimes, but 177 cm isn't unreasonable.
roy said on 12/Nov/16
I ran into him and he was surprisingly shorter than I imagined. I'm only 5'9 wearing 1 inch nikes and he was a little shorter. I'd guess 5'8 1/2 or 5'8 3/4. Definitely not a full 5'9.
S.J.H said on 11/Nov/16
Eddie Murphy could be 5'9.5 i really can't see a flat 176cm. He often look like 177cm

Eddie Murphy's Height
5ft 9.5in (176.65 cm)
Josh Jeffords said on 2/Nov/16
Never saw him look an inch over 5 9 even in shoes.
Towered massive by Nolte and a good deal by slouching rappaport.
Funny he tends to use lifts heard him admit to it back around 2000.
His build is rather small he looked a weak 5 8 on snl.
Simply put average men don't need lifts...
berta said on 22/Oct/16
i think he is about 176 and nolte was 184

In his stand up act 'Delirious', Eddie Murphy said he was 5'10", 165 lbs. I think he may have been that tall up until around age 50.

No, he said that in Raw (1987), not in Delirious (1983).
MrTBlack said on 5/Oct/16
In all fairness he never looked 5'8" to me but think 5'9" solid is it and not 5'10".
king said on 16/Sep/16
Just watched the movie 48hrs and in my opinion he does seem more 5'7 or 5'8. The scene where hes in the bar with the cowboys he just appears too small to be average height, even the average looking guys look bigger than him.

Do you think its time for a downgrade rob?
Editor Rob
you could argue at times Eddie did look a 5ft 8 -9 guy at times with Nick Nolte who looked an honest six footer as he claimed.
John said on 1/Sep/16
5ft 8 max, Rob
Imo said on 28/Aug/16
Rob, please tell me how tall does his girlfriend Paige Btcher is according to you?
Editor Rob
might be 5ft 6-7 zone
Christopher said on 18/Aug/16
Rob how tall do you think is ex wife nicole is? In a magazine article she claimed to be 5'11 and online sites have her listed 5'10. Instead she looks 5'9.5 (1.77), I mean she's tall but doesn't look that much taller than eddie.
Editor Rob
she did claim 5ft 10 on twitter numerous times. She could be in 5ft 9.5-10 zone, although with Murphy I believe when posing half the time she was dropping a bit of height at the hip.

A very accurate height listing.

Charlie said on 31/Jan/16
Eddie used to wear Boots many times in his stand up comedy routines like Raw and Delirious. Eddie Murphy is no wear 5 foot 5 foot 10. I am 5 foot 10 and im a giant. Many people think im a really tall guy. In Beverly Hills Cop Eddie appears 5 foot 7 inches perhaps 5 foot 8 inches and this is because hes wearing running shoes in the movie. Eddie is 5 foot 7 inches
Micho said on 22/Dec/15
Yup,same height as MJJ...
tumac66 said on 14/Dec/15
He looks 3 to 4 inches shorter than Nick Nolte in 48 Hours
Dobro said on 13/Oct/15
Hi Rob, can we get a page for his brother Charlie?

For Eddie... I think he's a bit shorter than he used to be, based on more recent pics. From his 20s through his 40s he was a pretty convincing 177-178cm IMO but probably hovers around 175cm today.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jul/15
Looks 5 ft 9 in Beverly Hills Cop.
Sam said on 17/Apr/15
I watched a retro episode of SNL from where Johnny Cash was hosting...I thought Murphy could pass for nearer 5'10" than 5'9" compared to Cash at 6'1.5". Eddie also looks that next to his brother Charlie Murphy who's pretty convincingly in the near 6'1" range with others such as Dave Chappelle.
Rey said on 22/Feb/15
During the promotion shots of "Bowfinger" there was a noticeable disparity in height. Steve Martin was noticeably taller than Eddie Murphy. Eddie Murphy is a small man in stature. As in all things in Hollywood, this issue had to be rectified. In flat feet, Eddie is barely 5'8".

Crypto139 said on 15/Jun/14
He is only 5 feet 9? Wow he looks tallish to me. I guess being skinny and having a small head can have a big impact on your height. He doesn't look too far from that guy in daddy day care (Jeff Garlin), who I look up on this site to be 6 foot 1. Either that or a 3.75 inch difference really isn't that much.
Dmeyer said on 25/May/14
Nielsén is good at height she said 5'8.5-9in sly and 5'9-9.5 murphy

I'd agree that Brigitte Nielsen was probably dead on with her 5'9"-5'9.5" estimate so this listing is perfect.
MrTBlack said on 2/Apr/14
No he's not 5'8". 5'9" solid most likely.
James B said on 29/Mar/14

Brigitte was spot on with 5'9 and half I think. 176-177 is good.

Weird he can look almost 6'
Silent d said on 28/Oct/13
He was as tall as chris rock in Beverley hills cop 2. He was also quite tall next to the 6 foot 1 blonde girl in the movie. About a few inches shorter than judge, the guyy from fast times. Jennifer jason leigh's older brother. I think he looks 177cm.
AG said on 20/Jul/13
He looks between 5'9 - 5'10. My bet is on 5'9.75(177cm) which is enough to call 5'10. He is not short, sometimes he looks above average.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jul/13
Looks 177cm in Metro I'm currently watching.

This isn't short. 5'7 or lower, below average/short. 5'8-5'9 is average. 5'10-5'11 above average/tallish. 6'0+ is tall.

In i spy clearly an inch and a half shorter than 179cm owen wilson. 176 seems right. He never looked five foot ten but he looked tall next to letterman. Five foot ten seems a stretch. In tower heist he does not look 5 foot 10. Maybe 176cm is right on.
DejaVu said on 26/Sep/11

If ever anybody looked of exactly average height,stature,physique etc...Eddie Murphy is one of them.5'10 or just below with weight/physique to match.Very transferable and useable as an actor,you could cast him as a badass muscleman gangster or a skinny office geek.Of course,his skill as an actor and performer plays a big part too.
Ricardo said on 26/Aug/11
I do not recall the publication but it was published right after he got back in shape after he was fat in Another 48 Hours... he absolutely identified himself as 5' 9" and whatever weight it was (I think 160 or 165, I don't remember). So If he self-identified ay 5'9" I would say that is probably the maximum possible height. p.s. to NCL below... who the hell wears a 30R as an adult (especially with a 33" waist)?! I am 5'9" 160-165lbs. with a 30-31" waist and I wear a 42R!
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 8/Aug/11
He isn't under 176cm, here he is in a recent shot with 169cm Ben Stiller.

Click Here

He's clearly more than 3inches taller, maybe because Stiller is more like 167 than 169.
bane said on 19/Jul/11

Ka said on 28/Jun/11
Rob, if you have to either upgrade Eddie to 177 cm or downgrade him to 175 cm, which would you pick> Also, do you think this guy tries to look taller by raising his chin up? I notice he does that a lot w/ Bruce Willis, Stevie Wonder and other celeb.
Editor Rob
I think you could probably try to argue both, but I think just over 5ft 9 is ok. Of course nothing can be certain, everything is trying to guess what we think is a reasonable estimate.

After re-watching the Beverly Hills Cop trilogy he just looks nothing over 5'8.

If the claims of 5'10 are true then, alot of the cast in all three movies are all 6'2, 6'3 range which I very much doubt.

Eddie Murphy wears lifts that make him look at least 3 inches taller than he actually is. He's actually about 5 ft 6in without shoes
J.J. said on 12/Feb/11
I've noticed that Eddie Murphy wears some sort of lifts. He is the height listed on this site & could quite possibly be 5'9" flat Rob!

His son from model wife Nicole Murphy(5'10") is 6'2" & anytime he takes pictures with Eddie he looks only a near 3" taller than his father. His daughter who is an aspiring model is a near 5'9" around 5'8.5"-5'8.75" & in heels Eddie looks only an inch shorter & sometimes the same.
Rob have you ever got the feeling Eddie Murphy wore lifts?
NCL said on 11/Feb/11
I came across this casting notice below which has Eddie Murphey at 5'10". I can't provide the link because you have to sign in so I copy and pasted it:

Late 30s - Mid 50s African-American Male, medium/dark African American skin tone (like Eddie Murphy) and MUST BE EXACTLY 5'10"!! Also, should have good hands and MUST BE the exact sizes listed, as these are the size of the clothing that EDDIE will wear for this poster, and the body double must fit PERFECTLY into the exact same wardrobe.

MUST BE the following sizes:
Suit: 30R
Shirt: 15 1/2 neck with 34 1/2 sleeve
Pant: 33 waist with 32 inseam
Shoe 10.5
Must be available to shoot this Sunday from 1-6pm in Brooklyn (however, shoot is expected to wrap a bit earlier). Please SUBMIT ASAP if you are the EXACT height (5'10") AND the EXACT sizes listed and available this SUNDAY!!!

I think he's about 5'9.
Asera said on 19/Jan/11
Seriously I've had enough of braindead MJ "fans" telling me that

"Michael MUST have been 5'9 because it said so in the official autopsy report!!"

oh god, this is getting too ridiculous!

If Eddie Murphy is 5'9 then MJ can't POSSIBLY be the same height since he's much shorter :

NO! For the last time Michael was barely over 5'7.

He's also almost the same height as George Lucas :

Why can't they see the truth I wonder?Please someone finally tell MJ fans the autopsy measuring is totally false!

People who are 6'0 are always challenging me on my height and they ALWAYS only have one inch or so on me

Yeah, Eddie is 5'9.5". Exactly average, just like he usually looks. With elevator shoes he can pass for taller, maybe a weak 5'11".
Doug said on 4/Mar/09
Brigette Nielsen who is clearly 184 cm claimed Murphy was 5'9.5" when she heard him say "I'm 5'10 shes like 6'2". 176 or 177 is about right.

Well, in the U.S. we are shorter. The average male is 5'9" or 5'10". I'm 5'9, and I never got called short unless I'm standing next to someone very tall.
Source said on 25/Jan/09
RisingForce, i find it very hard to believe that 5'9.25(176cm) is average in the US. I live in Sweden and average here is 5'11(180cm). Im 5'9(175cm) and i get called short all the time =)
RisingForce said on 25/Jan/09
Exactly, many people have the delusional opinion that anything under 6 feet is small for a man!

I always thought Eddie was 5'9.5", that's pretty much what Rob lists him at so I'd say this listing is very accurate. I was a pretty big fan in the 80's, but I haven't liked him that much since.
leonari said on 23/Jan/09
Listen to rising all you fools out there. He speaks the truth!
Eddie says exactly that. But he ain't 5'10". Not below 5'9.25 if you ask me! Rob again: spot on mate. He was wearing heels when performing RAW. Ridiculous things...Still one of the best stand ups in history
RisingForce said on 23/Jan/09
5'9.25" is exactly average male height in the US.

Defintion of small "Being below the average in size or magnitude."

Exactly average is NOT small. 5'9.25" is NOT small. I hate this type of ignorance, I can't stand when people call 5'9" or 5'10" small.

I think I remember that post. The poster said that he deviously asked Eddie "is your height a problem, are you too tall for some roles?" just to see the reaction. A funny look came over Eddie and he seized the opportunity: "yeah I'm 5-11" or something like that.
sf said on 12/May/08
Love how Eddie made sure he he leaned towards the camera to distort the heights. Right away, a sign he isn't as tall as he'd like to be.

5'9.25" sounds pretty good to me.
mr. blue said on 11/May/08
No way 5'11 for Eddie at every time! In Beverly Hills Cop 6' Judge Reinold towered over him. Eddie looked no more than 5'9 max. in that movie most of the time.
Can't give anything than a weak 5'10 peak height for eddie, maybe even a little shorter ...
Danimal said on 11/Apr/08

TNT said on 7/Feb/08
i think eddie murphy is 5'8".
cuz there is a siene in a movie called i spy eddie was looking for his friend Owen Wilson and he was asking the peiople about if they had seen his friend and he says his friend discribtion that he mentioned in it that his friend is 5'9" and in that movie Owen Wilson looks an insh taller than eddie.
so i'll go for 5'8" for Eddie Murphy.

The movie with Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin, there were some problems with the publicity shots because Martin appeared a lot taller than Eddie. There is no way eddie can be 5' 10 if Steve is a bit over 5'11. Eddie may be 5'10 with the best shoe lifts in the business.

Hi Glenn. What kind of footwear was eddie wearing? Everytime i see eddie on screen i see him as 5'9 but in your pic he looks like he could be near 5'11 or even 6'0.
dmeyer said on 11/Oct/07
if standing straight would be mush taller than glenn so 5'10.5 in lifts 5'9 without

Theres a few photos with Eddie Murphy , Jamie Fox and Will Smith ! .. Eddie murphy if anything is shorter then Fox who is 5'9 I say 5'8.5 min , 5'9 max for Eddie ! 5'10 is his height in shoes !

That's concluding, '5' 11"' comment was interesting. Can you elaborate?

I'm exactly 5'8''1/4 (173.5 cm) through all day I suppose, don't really believe in morning/evenig stuff
I was always interested in height since I've nevere felt short or either tall.. My height is a tricky one though and I can easily look taller also because I'm skinny.
Nevertheless if I was 5'11 I swear I'd never be so curious about height
Adam Brennon said on 27/Sep/07
How tall are you stench?
Stench said on 25/Sep/07
I say, lucky who is a hair or someting over 5'9'' because they always surprises you: I mean you meet these people and you think that they might be 5'8'' but ...
There's a lot of cases like
Don Johnson
Kurt Russell
Mel Gibson (though I still have doubts about him)
Leto (I'm not totally sure again)

They can wear low sneakers such as converse and still don't look so short
The only one that is in the 5'8'' range after years of researches is Tom (Cruise)

Jamie Foxx, Eddie and Will Smith. Foxx has a little help from the camera angle, Smith has it worst from the camera angle.

Here he is with Russell Simmons, who's listed at 5'9", here, and is definitely no taller.

Eddie is not over 5'9", though I doubt much shorter than that. And, if you believe that Jamie Foxx is a legitimate 5'9" barefoot, he's also never taller than him, so I'm not exactly see how this quarter inch is hanging in.

Looked 1" shorter than Jamie Foxx at the 13th Annual Screen Actor's Guild Awards shown on I M D B

I was surprised when I finally saw him on the screen with Richard Pryor in "Harlem Nights" he was a full 1" shorter than the 5-10ish Pryor. I hope he wasn't wearing lifts!
arman said on 6/Apr/07
i didnt see him before.but i think he is 176 or 177 cm actually.i'm 176 too,but when i say i am 180,nobody can find my real height
Franco said on 1/Apr/07
well considering glenn is 5'8 (which i think more of 5'7.5 after the weight gain) indeed Murphy looks about 3 inch taller and that actually proves he is 5'9 flat.

Glenn say 1.73cm, murphy = 3 inch taller in pic say 1.80cm, remove the elevator shoes and he stands 5'9 to 5.9.5

absolutely not 1.77cm or more.

compared to Glenn Eddy looks like he is 2.5-3" taller, most definetly Glenn looks MUCH shorter in height and proportions against eddy. Eddy must be 5'10.5"

176 make sens for him
