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.
tree said on 9/Mar/19
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:

Click Here

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.

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.

Looks right

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
May edge fox at his peak mildly or by maybe half
5'11.25 at noon said on 7/Aug/17
I'm not considered tall where I'm from but I see mr Murphy as only being 5'9.5 max

He'd beat out Tom Hardy and Jamie Foxx.

175/176 cm in peak guys

He is as a guy with average height

Here next to Nick Nolte ( strong 183 cm or 6 feet ) in "24 hours movie" they wear similar boots. See please!

Eddie Murphy´s height= 175 cm during day and 176 cm in the morning first hours.
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!
even said on 8/Jul/17
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.
Adey P said on 23/May/17
Possible peak height of 5 ft 10 Rob?
Editor Rob: I just can't see it...
James B said on 22/May/17
I would have thought 5ft8.

In his films he didn't seem like a guy who only less than an inch under 5ft10.
World Citizen said on 19/May/17
I thought he was way taller than this. Like 6 ft 1 or 2.
Nik said on 1/May/17
RIP Charlie Murphy.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Apr/17
👍 Excellent idea Rob! 👏
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Apr/17
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.

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.

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' movies...so 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

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...

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

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.

Eddie used to wear Boots many times in his stand up comedy routines like Raw and Delirious. Eddie Murphy is no wear 5 foot 9.to 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

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.

I'd agree that Brigitte Nielsen was probably dead on with her 5'9"-5'9.5" estimate so this listing is perfect.

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.
Bakel said on 20/May/13
Models are often over-listed. 176cm fits him perfectly I think.
greg said on 17/May/13
In pics with Australian model Page Butcher, listed in a few places as 5'8", he clearly looks at least two inches taller with her wearing flats, and he wearing low profile sneakers.

I have to agree with Juicey that he appears to be about 5'10". He looks a bit shorter because of his body shape and arm length, but then again many people appear shorter than they actually are.
Juicey said on 13/Apr/13
Im 5'9 barefoot saw murphy where i work at the bellagio in las vegas looks 5'10 to me but you never know theses celebs and there footwear...
Eddie said on 30/Mar/13
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.

He looked a half inch or so shorter than Jamie. That could just be footwear.

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.

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.

He's clearly more than 3inches taller, maybe because Stiller is more like 167 than 169.

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

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 :

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.

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 ...

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.
by the way in this site owen wilson is listed that Owen Wilson height: 5 ft 10.25 in (178 cm)!!!

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.

Nevertheless if I was 5'11 I swear I'd never be so curious about height

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
Murphy
Depp
Stallone
Don Johnson
Kurt Russell
Spacey
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)

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.

me too saw Eddie Murphy in the italian festival of the cinema in 2001 and i managed to speak to him for exactly 30 seconds and i told him i'm a big fan of his movies and asked him if his height made it hard for him to shoot any (THAT WAS A TRICKY QUESTION TO SEE HIS REACTION!)....

he said : i'm 5'11 and in some shots i did have problems.

that was a killer reply because since he said 5'11 that means he is 5'9 on the money!

2 inch shoes = 1 inch heel + 1 inch lift :D and a 5'9 becomes 5'11.

he did look 5'9 to me regardless.

im speaking the truth to you guys, Eddie Murphy is 100% 5'9 height.

I agree with Frank2.All the actors who say 5'11 they are 5'9" at the most(like orlando bloom) and the other actors who say that they are 5'10" they are 5'8" at the most(like jean claude van damme).That's my opinion which i believe is very true...

Eddie Murphy is a tough one. Some of the photos makes him look short but sometimes he looks taller. I know he says he is 5'10"
Clive said on 5/May/06
TOTALLY agree with what you said Frank2 !!!
Frank2 said on 4/May/06
Remove the half an inch and you have his true height. Eddie's no more than 5'9".

Remember the golden rule: If an actor admits to being 5'10" he's most likely shorter. This is especially true if he claims to be 5'11". Then of course the fellows who cliam to be six feet are mostly under. And then a few pinheads will say they're 6'1" when they're more likely to be around 5'11". then a few who claim to be 6'2" wear huge lifts and people buy it. In other words, throw out all the official heights and go by your eyes.

I found a Murphy's photo with the 185cm Dan on the film "Trading places" and Murphy largely looks more than 7cm under Dan, I'd say at least 10cm under... So it confirms what has been said bellow, Murphy isn't over 5'9.5 !

During these last weeks I saw the film "Bowfinger" with Murphy and Steve Martin listed here as 182cm and like on Frank2's photos Murphy looks at least 5cm under on their pics of course... So 5'9.5 seemed to be a right estimation, didn't you?

Looking at that picture of the Shirek cast that Clive sent. He's taller than 5'7" Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz but shorter than 5'9" Antonio Bandares. He's not tall! 5'10" is his phony height and actors want to make people think they're their goal height instead of what they actually are and not happy about it. All of those pictures give clear evidence that he's just trying to get away with wearing shoe lifts to be taller than Glen because he does not want to be listed as 5'8". Glen do you think he's really only 5'8"?

[Editor Rob: I saw another 48 hours last night....Nolte did have a noticeably good few inches, but I think he might have had slightly larger heels, hmm, I could see this guy being 5ft 9, looking more with lifts for sure]

Bill Shatner was born with a hairpiece. Going way back to his appearance on a Twilight Zone episode he wore a full carpet as he did in the 1961 feature film Judgment at Nuremberg.

Burt started wearing hairpieces sometime after the 1972 film Deliverance. There were rumors that he tried an early form of hair transplantation as did Sinatra and the result looked so much like a hairbrush that he continued to wear toupes.

"said the Walrus to the Carpenter, the time has come to speak of many things, of sails and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings."

As long as we seem to stuck in Wonderland with Alice as far as heights go, I thought I'd get into the spirit of the thing.

WAKE UP PETER!!

I met Treat when he showed up to read for the Fox Mulder part in The X-Files pilot. He and I are the same height. The asinine IMDb lists him as being 5'10".

Maybe I should write a book disputing the wrong heights listed on the IMDb.

Actually, I'd rather start a website on which of the rich and famous wear carpets on their empty heads. And no, Donald Trump doesn't. He just grows his hair from the sides and back real long, swirls it around to cover the bald spots and then glues it down with an entire can of hairspray.

[Editor Rob: when did burt/shatner begin wearing their toupees, any idea?]

Rob what are you waiting for to change Eddie's height ??? The last photo I saw with Prior don't let any doubt anymore !!!
Frank2 said on 13/Apr/06
Eddie Murphy and Richard Prior: Click Here
In his prime Prior was slightly less than 5'10". I know since I met him on two occasions and that was before his little drug accident that ended up setting himslef on fire. As you can clearly tell, Eddie is shorter.

The moronic IMDb lists Piscopo at 6'1". Insane!

Now I know Bill is that tall. Hmmmm.....I wonder if Alan and Sean lie about their height. Hmmmmmmm....that would make Joe shorter......Hmmmmmmmmm.....I just wonder......

Naw. Here's Alan with 6'1" George Hamilton: Click Here
But then George is in his seventies and could have lost an inch or two....Hmmmmmmmm......

This guy looks 5'9

Well said Frank2, well said !!! I totally agree with your "image's celebrities" concept which push them to increase their real height !
Frank2 said on 12/Apr/06
You're not fools (well maybe a few ar!). You're just trying to find the truth. If you only accept as fact what the celebs claim, you'll get nowhere fast. They almost all lie. I suppose it's human nature. How many driver's licenses have bogus heights on them? How many of you have given an optimistic height? In the case of celebrities, their image is everything so they must protect it at all costs.
Horatio said on 12/Apr/06
God damn. As Frank has illustrated sometimes I wonder if we are all fools for posting here. I would downgrade Murphy to 5'9".
Clive said on 12/Apr/06
Thanks for your comment Rob ! In that case there will be a consequence on Michael Jackson's height if we suppose Murphy is a 5'9 guy...
Continued on next episode or photos ;)
