Rob I thought Harrison was more 184cm at his peak than 185, don't you think he was more 6ft 0.5 than 6ft 0.75?
Editor Rob: 184 can be argued for him

imo 6' prime, 5'11 now.

Was taller than Brad Pitt in 'the devils own', 184 peak I would suppose.

Rob, would you please add Witness, Working Girl, Air Force One and 42 to his credits?

I think 6'0 is better than 6'1 peak , now he looks no more than about 5'10.5 , thought that is age/posture.
Axaros said on 25/Oct/15
Nowdays Ford looks around 5'10''
Sonny Black said on 25/Oct/15
Lol @ "Muk!" That's the worst angle possible for height comparison...
Jim Hopper said on 23/Oct/15
Never 6-1" prime. 6-0" prime now 5-11" max
Muk said on 22/Oct/15
Check the picture of Harrison Ford with David Blaine. Blaine looks approx. 2+ inches taller than Ford. Blaine is billed at 6'0". Being conservative, it could be Blaine is wearing shoes and Ford is not - since it's his house and kitchen. But I'd guess shoe-less Blaine would still have Ford by an inch. Also, given actors tend to be billed as taller than they are I might question Ford's 6'1" billing.

6'1" in 1975, 6'0 in the 90's, 5'11 flat today. A 1980's Harrison has almost identical measurements to the 1980's Kevin Costner, based on auctioned off costume measurements: 34 x 34 pants, 34 sleeve, 16 neck, 38-40 chest jacket, size 10-1/2 boot, a size 7-1/4 hat., ranged from 165 -180 lbs. 34 is a pretty decent inseam, landing him in the 6 foot and up club for sure when he was younger.

Rampage: I admire your dedication. I think though, for the majority of sedentary people don't like working out...I'd argue becoming "fit", say 15% body fat for men, and 20-25% body fat for women are realistically attainable goals. Having a 1970's Harrison Ford build may not be the same as being stacked like Dwayne Johnson or today's body builders, but it is arguably healthier feeling and looking than being pre-obese where most Americans today are heading towards -- Fitness is sort between the 2 extremes -- ultra ripped, and obese.

Rob what's your estimate for his peak height (when he was twenties)?

A) 187,0cms/185,0cms
B) 186,5cms/184,5cms
C) 186,0cms/184,0cms
D) 185,5cms/183,5cms

I live in UK and have a friend who is 5'6 3/4 (he claims 5'8) and I am guessing he weighs 200 pounds. To join the army he said he has to get down to 140 pounds.

Naturally my friend is big boned so he would be better of at 155 pounds.

I dont want to comment on the US as it has the highest obesity rates in the western world. However in most european countries you dont really have alot of men with over 25% bodyfat (obesity). When i was younger i had a BF percentage of 17 at 83kg. Now at 34 i have a BF percentage of 13 at 94kg. We all have different frames and if you have a doctor who knows this they will also measure your wrists before giving you a verdict on your BMI.

Don't forget that the average man has a BF percentage of somewhere 18-24 percent.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 27/Sep/15
184.3cm: Similar in that the BMI healthy range for 6 feet is 136 - 184 lbs, and US Army weight regulation for 6 ft is 140 -200 lbs for men between 18 and 40. So 170 lbs would be right in the middle.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 27/Sep/15
A 236 lb man at 7% Body fat would have been seen as a god among Union Army ranks. But that type of body requires a lot of up-keep am I right? And even in this modern day, how many men have sub 10% body fat? Probably less than 1 in 10. Only 16% of the US population has gym membership, and CDC estimate 80% seldom exercise... The real question then becomes, what body type is a General looking for in his soldiers? Men who can march 20 miles, live on coffee and beans, (No McDonalds in the barracks back then) dig trenches, and sleep in the mud, and still put up a good fight-- or ultimate Dwayne Johnson types who are 3 x stronger than average and eat 3 x the food, and is 3 x the target on the battlefield? The lean hunter gatherer physique has been the rule, rather than exception in modern soldiers up until recent decades.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/15
Being "fat" and being "overweight" are two completely different things. I'm 236lbs (7% bodyfat) at almost 6ft4. I'll be 40 next year and I consider myself to be in the best shape of my life, better than when I was 20-25.
184.3cm (Night) said on 25/Sep/15
Very similar? 73 kilos for war veterans and nowadays up to 93 kilo before you are deemed unfit , so long as you have in excess of 20 percent bodyfat, which means they do consider bodybuilders. 20 kilo is a massive difference.
The BMI nonsense only good for women and frail men. Any guy who lifts on a regular basis with our superior nutrition in the modern age will easily weigh 185 pounds + at 6 foot.
James B said on 23/Sep/15
Exactly I think the human body looks better when in the healthy bmi range
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 22/Sep/15
Rampage: Before we toss out BMI completely, we should remember the US Army weight standards today are very similar. A man of 6 feet can be disqualified from service if he exceeds the 190 to 204 pound range depending on age, and his body fat exceeds 20%. The average young man in America would not qualify.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 22/Sep/15
Harrison was 6 feet 1 and 165-170 pounds in the 1970's and he certainly did not look emaciated. Newspapers listed him as robust and of "strong physique." He was of typical build for a man of the pre-industrial period.

I actually tabulated the average weights of men and U.S. soldiers in the period 1861 to 1944, using height and weight data of over 8 million draftees from the Civil War to World war II. For 80 years of America's bloodiest wars, soldiers kept a mean BMI of 22. This puts the weight of a 6 foot soldier at approx. 162 pounds, or 168 lbs fully clothed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Sep/15
@James B: I disagree. That BMI model is so inaccurate and so outdated. It would categorise someone like Dwayne Johnson or John Cena as overweight or even obese.
James B said on 3/Sep/15
A small built 6'1 man should weigh 164 pounds, medium built 177 pounds and large framed 6'1 man 187 pounds.
Judd ISR said on 1/Sep/15
Starting from the point that I believe that Ford was at peak 6'0.5" instead an almost 6'1", of course in the Raiders he did look very slim and also at the beginning of his career...I think his weight, figure with high shoulder and small head and long legs contributed to make him seems taller...
Beachboy said on 29/Aug/15
Everyone has different bone structures, muscle density, leg size which can attribute to it.
A friend of mine was 6'0 120s and he looked really lean, but certainly not "emaciated". He did have good leg size for somebody at that weight. I'm 5'11 155 and I still have some excess fat.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Aug/15
177 overweight for 6 ft 1 LOL? Djokovic is about 177 pounds at almost 6'2" and look how skinny he is!
Arch Stanton said on 28/Aug/15
165 for 6'1 is very slender Magic, but not exactly "insanely skinny" which would be 130-140 pounds or something. On youtube there's a guy called the "Life Regenerator or something who preaches about raw food I've seen and he claims 6 ft 2 and 165 pounds and he hasn't an ounce of fat on him, looks like he lives on a desert island. He looks very slender and sinewy in build, healthy, but any lighter and he'd look emaciated.
MD said on 28/Aug/15

You've got some extremely warped views of what "normal" and healthy are. Even taking into account cultural differences (I'm not sure we're you're from). A 6'1" 165lbs is never going to look "big" and 6'1" at 120lbs IS emaciated-looking. My goodness.
Magic said on 26/Aug/15
My brother is about 6'1 and very overweight at 200 pounds. He would still look chubby at 6'1 177.
Magic said on 26/Aug/15
6'1 165 is a good size for most. Female? Look how big Thomas Hearns looks here at 165. Click Here . I have a friend who is 6'1 165 and he looks "big." Insanely skinny is 6'1 130.

Nah, 6'1 177 is nearing overweight range for most people.

Rocky, how do you look emaciated at 5'9 170. I know a guy around that and he looks chubby.

Heck, I was 6'1 120 at one point in high school and didnt even look insanely skinny. 30 inch waist and the lowest . Skinny but not emaciated looking. I wore size large shirts and couldnt fit into medium.

I also know a 6'3 170 guy with a 32 inch waist and he looks real good.

If I was 6'1 160 Id look real good. 40 inch chest 32 inch waist male model proportions.
James B said on 22/Aug/15
A regular 6'1 man should weigh 177 pounds
Rocky said on 19/Aug/15
Disagreed heavily OME. 6'1'' and 165 is insanely skinny, it's pretty much a female weight. I'm 5'9'' and 170 lbs, 10% body fat or so, and I look emaciated.

James B said on 3/Aug/15
160-165 pounds is thin for someone who is 185cm.

I'd expect a small built 6'1 man to weigh that but ford seemed medium framed to me. By the 80s he looked heavier than that for sure since he bench pressed a lot for temple of doom.

LOL no it isnt. Hell, when I was 6'1 150 I couldnt wear anything smaller than large size. Now at 6'3 185 I cant wear anything smaller than XL. And I have to wear pants 2 sizes bigger because of my legs.

Plus for most people 6'0 185 is considered overweight according to the BMI. Again BMI is good for regular people.
Axaros said on 16/Aug/15
I think Ford wasn't 6'0.75'' at peak. If nowdays he's near 5'10'' he was about 6'' at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/15
I reckon 200lbs solid in the 80's. He was jacked in Raiders of The Last Ark and The Lost Temple. The Han Solo years, a svelte 175lbs.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 6/Aug/15
James B, Yeah I don't think Ford has ever been over 200 pounds, he's always been in fit shape. Every interview and news article from the 70's and 80's lists him in the 160 to 175 or 180 pound range. His lean figure also makes his 6 ft 1 height all the more believable. His jacket from Raiders was auctioned off some years ago and it was only a 38 to 40 inch chest size -- indicating a man not over 170 or 180 pounds.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/15
He probably held 6ft1 for the first half of the day then dipped slightly under it in the late afternoon.
He had a right to claim it. This listing is perfect

He was consistently listed at 6'1 and 160 or 165 lbs in the "Close-up" move magazine clippings. Click Here

I think he was 6'1" back in the day, but a full 6 feet by the 1980's -90's.

Jesse Stone said on 28/Jun/15
Just watched Clear and Present Danger yesterday and his "a bit over the 6 ft mark" seems perfect. I'd say 184 cm in his prime and around 5'11 (180 cm)today. So he could have lost near 2 inches of height. A great actor!

My Opinion is that harrison ford is 6ft1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/15
Near 6ft1 peak is believable watching Blade Runner and Raiders of The Lost Ark.
Tim1.79 said on 6/Jun/15
And I think he was no more than 183cm at his peak, anything over 6ft was probably in shoe measurements. I know that he is old now, but he did look very close in height to 177-178cm Daniel Craig, was taller than Craig by maybe 2cm. So I believe he is 179-180cm now, and was 183cm back in the days, makes sense.
marc said on 1/Jun/15
I'm one of those who believe that at least today, at his seventies, he's no taller than 5'9". At least, that's what can be seen at the "Expendables 3" teaser, where he is the same distance from the camera as Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas, and the three are the same height.
Judd said on 22/May/15
if letterman is 6'0.75-1" today (and he seems it a lot, look at him next to Obama), then Ford is for sure in the 5'11" range: Click Here

i think he's anywhere between 5'10.75 (at worst) and 5'11.25 (at best) so i think the ave, 5'11 would be the fairest choice.
about his peak height it's not clear, but for sure he wasn't anything under a strong 6'...6'0.25 (at worst), 6'0.5" and 6'0.75" (at best) are all fine, but not 6'0" or even 6'1".

Currently: range 5'10.75-11.25"
Peak: range 6'0.25-6'0.75"
Mark said on 21/May/15
Ford was 6'1" during his prime years but clearly has lost height, he looked only slightly taller than Daniel Craig in Cowboys and Aliens. Craig could have been wearing lifts in shoes which I would suspect. Craig I believe is no taller than 5'9" but Ford is no shorter than 5'11' these days, he has lost height due to age an injury but is in excellent shape for a man in his 70s.

Saw Working Girl 2 days ago and thought Harrison Ford was looking more 6ft by the time of that film.

It would have been interesting to see him beside a young Alec Baldwin but they didn't share any scenes.

Probably full 6'1 until Temple of doom. He suffered a back injury then strong 6'0 until late 90's.from late 90's up until his last indiana jones movie he looked a flat 6'0.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/15
I think Ford in his prime was roughly the same as Henry Cavill. Dropped to 184.5cm at his lowest and could get away with claiming 6ft1
Rey said on 18/Mar/15
Harrison was never over 6 feet. He is (a lot) shorter in public. Today, barely 5'9" in flat feet.
Arthur 5'10 said on 16/Mar/15
Rob in a scene in 'Fugitive' where Ford is dressed as a doctor trying to escape from a hospital, a policeman asks him whether he has seen the suspect and describes him as 6'1". Is that worth adding in the description?
[Editor Rob: the mugshot in the movie is probably a good indicator he wasn't 6ft 1 in it, I think he should have looked taller.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/15
Connery was still 6ft2 in 1989
CDS said on 16/Feb/15
This guy has obviously lost some height over the years- dunno if it was due to that back surgery he had in the '80s during "Temple of Doom", or just natural height loss with age, but here is my guestimate- peak height-->> a little over 6' in bare feet, and now between 5'10" and 5'11" bare feet. Maybe in the '90s, he was in the 5'11 1/2" bare feet range-?? The little over six feet claim he made for himself would make sense, as well as go right along with the 6'1" official height listing (in shoes), and more recently he looked only a hair taller than 5'10" Ray Winstone in "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull", and easily 4 inches shorter than 6'3"-ers Paul Bettany in "Firewall" and Liam Helmsworth in "Paranoia".

Cant have been over 6ft in last crusade since 6'1-6'1.5 sean Connery was noticeably taller.

That's because Connery was taller than 6'1"!

Connery must have lost 1cm from his peak by 1989 Arch

Personally i think Connery was no less than 6'1.5" in the last i said before, in 1987 AA cerimony he was as tall as Kevin Kline, who was an honest 6'1.5" guy...

Never looked more than 6 foot. Only in Star Wars when he had chunky heels did he look over it. Look at him next to an aged Sean Connery, Sean had probably lost a good chunk and was about 6'1 during The Last Crusade and yet was easily taller. Nowadays he looks no more than 5'10.5.
Joe said on 2/Feb/15
Ford was definitely over 6 feet tall in his prime years, it was not a stretch to say that he was close to 6'1" when he was acting in action films. He was acting with Daniel Craig in Cowboys and Aliens, in one publicity photo he appeared to be the same height as Daniel Craig and in other photos he was noticeably taller, which leads me to believe that Craig wears lifts, also in another photo the two appear to the be the same height, and in one other photo the Ford appears to be only one inch taller. I think Ford today is 5'11", his peak was 6'0.5", not a full 6'1", it was not a stretch for him to tell people he was 6'1", it was nothing like Stallone bragging about him being 5'11' when in reality he was only 5'7".

Joe said on 28/Jan/15
I think 6'1" was his height in shoes. He was more like 6 feet and half an inch barefoot. He is a very lean man, apparently his weight is between 160 to 170 pounds which is very lean for a man that is over 6 feet tall, so that can give him the appearance of being taller. In the Fugitive he looked slightly taller than Tommy Lee Jones who is around 5'11.5" to 6 feet. Lately he looks the same height as 5'10" Daniel Craig, Craig is still in his prime years, Ford is an old man, people begin to lose height in their 50s and 60s due to the cartilage in their spine and knees wearing out.
Christian said on 10/Jan/15

I think he was 6'0.5" in his prime years, he is probably 5'11" today, I think he might be even less, maybe 5'10", but then again he is in his 70s, he is an old man Also comparing Ford to Stallone is a bad idea, Stallone wears lifts, and shoes with thick soles, he has claimed he was 5'11" when he was doing Rocky and Rambo movies, LMAO, Stallone is 5'7".

Or you measured at different times during the day over those few years... You shrink through the day you know, sorry to burst your bubble, just leave your theory on men growing after 18 up to a geneticist, as I am sure there are many factors involved in growth and it's not the same for every man as your comment suggests.
MarathonMan said on 9/Nov/14
When I was 18, I stood 180 (5'11''). By the time I was 21, 184 6'1/2'' and by the time I was 25-30, 186 (6 1 1/4''), my current height. 15 years later, only my belly is growing.
But that's true, men do grow after they 18.

Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 25/Oct/14
Ford was 6 ft 0.5 peak = 5'11 or 5-11.25 flat today. lost 1.5 inches due to age, and back surgery. Maybe he should get an inversion bed.

Ape 4: When I was 18, I measured 5'11.25 in the evening. By age 24 I measured 5'11.75 in the evening. So 1/2 inch, or 1 to 2 cm is normal to gain in your early 20's.
Appe4 said on 22/Oct/14

Around 6'1" peak. With the injury sustained in ToD he must've shrank to around 5'11" in the 90's.
SaveUsY2J said on 22/Sep/14
In Blade Runner he was slightly shorter than Rutger Hauer but it's possible Hauer cleared the 6'1 mark slightly. In their respective primes I could definitely see him being 6'0.75 and Hauer 6'1.25.

Looking back at his 70s/80s films I struggle to believe he was anything taller than a weak 6ft, he was slim and we know they used all sort of tricks to make people appear taller. IMHO 6ft in the morning at peak and now between 5ft 10 and 11.

Jamz said on 2/Sep/14
Looked really tall in his prime. Looking back at Star Wars he looks like he could almost pass for 6'2" (at least). I assume being very lean and surrounded by short actors and extras worked in his favor to achieve that affect. I'd certainly say he was essentially 6'1". After Temple of Doom he apparently lost an inch due to an injury on set. You can actually tell that he seems slightly shorter in The Last Crusade.
Fergal said on 25/Aug/14

Sam in his films from the late 80s and early 90s he didn't look that tall.

In his movies from the 70s, he really can look near 6'1" IMO, take a look at Apocalypse Now, Force 10 from Navarone, The Frisco Kid, the guy looks pretty tall IMO. Obviously not more than 5'11" now in his 70s.

Harrison Ford's height is 5ft 11in (180 cm)
Peak height was between 6ft 0.25in (184 cm) and 6ft 0.75in (185 cm)

Today he really looks not above 5ft 11, so i think he would touch it if measured. I'm not sure about his peak height, but i think he was between 6ft 0.25 (at worst) and 6ft 0.75 (best) 185,5-186,5 in the morning and 183,5-184,5 in the evening.

Harrison Ford's height is 5ft 11in (180 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 0.75in (185 cm)

At first i thought still 182 cm, but now that i look at more recent pics of him with actors. I'd say 5ft 10.75-5ft 11.5 today and 6ft 0.5-6ft 1.25 peak.
Haylee Jen said on 21/Jun/14
He really did look quite tall earlier in his career. When I first saw him in Star Wars I thought he was 6'2. The above listing for peak and today is probably accurate.
FilmMaker said on 19/Jun/14
Boris, there's no proof today he's 5'11.5. Also next to a lot of people who are in the 5'11-11.5 range (es: Jimmy Kimmel) he looks shorter. I think today 5'11 is very fair for him.
boris said on 19/Jun/14
don't forget sly wears lifts and probably hits 5'10 and can appear around fords height.
harrison ford 5'11.5 today, peak 6'0.5 and possibly hit 6'1.5 in footwear

He looked in the 6ft range in his prime for sure, but now he's looking more and more lucky to be 5'11.

James B: Excellent photo comparison! We see that Ford is a full 2 inches shorter than Letterman in the photo. Dave Letterman is about 6 ft 1" to 6 ft 1-1/2" these days, so Ford may be 5 ft 11-1/2 tops today.

I think the general consensus on this board these days is that Ford was around 6 ft 0.5" at his prime.

Maio: Yeah, I mean even with his sloutching posture he's got to be at least 3/4 inches shorter than Jimmy Fallon, I say a full inch. High 5'11s in the past 2 decades, and 5'11 flat in the past few years. He's almost 72 for goodness sakes, almost everyone loses 1 to 2 inches by their senior years.

i met him in 1982. he was 6-foot. i shook hands and spoke with him for few minutes. i'm a six footer and he was tall such as me. maybe a bit slimmer.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 30/Apr/14
I just saw Harrison Ford on Jimmy Fallon's show where he pierces Jimmy's ear. It's pretty conclusive now that Ford is not any taller than 5 feet 11 nowdays. If Jimmy is nearly 6 feet, Ford was a full inch shorter than him.

I say 6 ft 1/2 inch prime for Ford at age 35, and 6 ft at age 50, high 5 ft11's in the past decade.

James B, in 1977 Ford was listed in a magazine at a lean 165 lbs, 11 stone 11, and in "Raiders" his jacket he wore was a 38-40 (auctioned off), by 1993 in "The Fugitive" he was listed at 175 -180 lbs, or 12.5-13 stone. He's kept himself consistently in good shape.

Looked between medium-tall in working girl. In patriot games I'd say he looked 'tallish' so fairly over average but not a big amount.
James B said on 13/Mar/14
Honestly in patriot games he struck me as looking 5'11 1/2. Maybe it was his posture I dunno? But I think around 1992 Harrison ford was closer to 6ft than 6'1. He looked 5'11 in working girl also. In the Indiana jones movies I'd say ford looked 184cm.
Seattlite said on 12/Mar/14
I have a photo from 2007 of myself with Harrison Ford standing side by side. I am 5'11,7/8" in my bare feet. In the photo we are exactly the same height. (with shoes on, of course).He could very easily be 6'0 without shoes on. He is absolutely taller than 5'11.5
Lorne said on 6/Mar/14
I have to say, watching Blade runner, he really does give a 184cm impression. In fact, I think peak Ford was very similar to Alexis Denisof in terms of height and build, both slender, long legs, good posture, both can give a 6'1 impression, but we now know Alex was never more than a good 184cm. Ford may have very well have been the same, though my "Official" peak height for Ford remains 6ft0.75/185...
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 5/Mar/14

Being that you are a guy from medical profession, then I am encouraged to hear you acknowledge that 2-3 cm is an average level of shrinkage by old age. In fact, I would say over 3 cm of shrinkage is not inconceivable for those who have sustained disc surgery and or scoliosis. My grand father was 5'10.5 and 156 pounds at age 26 in the U.S. Army in 1944. By age 90, in 2008 he stood 5'5", due in part to a curved spine, but also general aging. an inch or 1.5 inches can be expected by age 75 or 80,unless one is a rare individual who keeps very good posture and abdominal musculature well into their 70's. Dr. Roshini Raj was interviewed on NBC's Today show Friday Oct 7, 2011, going into great detail explaining the average decrease in stature of senior citizens.

If Harrison Ford was 6 foot -1/2 inch tall by mid day (as I propose) at age 30, his current height of 5'11 -5'11.5 seems very consistent for his age of 71 years.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/14
I'd say Ford was 186-187cm out of bed in his prime.
Mugahot said on 1/Mar/14
As a guy from medical profession, I can tell you this for sure: people, on average, do not "shrink" more than 2-3 cm. It's just ridiculous to read about each older actor here than he shrank more than 3 cm. LOL
Lorne said on 19/Feb/14
A 34 inseam is pretty long. And don't forget he states his own height as 6'1 in the fugitive itself, much better than a poster. Anyway, although they're is no chance for 6'1, I do think he was a solid 184 at peak, and the 6ft0.75 listing fits him, though 6ft0.5 is likely. PS: with Billy Dee Williams finally at 180cm peak, Ford's gotta be over 6 feet ;)
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 18/Feb/14
Maio & Jake,

Agreed, 6ft 1/2" 184 cm his peak height in the 70's. The Fugitive shows him standing up to a line up and he is 6'1" in shoes. He probably has lost 1 or 1.5 inches in height like most men tend to by age 71, Ford looks a flat 5-11 these days. And if Ford really was 165 lbs in New Hope, that explains why he appeared rather tall in Star Wars and all his early films. Being lanky can give an optical illusion of being 1 or 2 inches taller.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 17/Feb/14
Mike, Harrison Ford is described at age 35 in this 1977 Magazine as 6'1" a "lanky" 165 pounds, brown eyes, brown hair, Age 35:
Click Here

This actually makes him about 5 or 10 lbs lighter than I figured he was in Star Wars 1977, and once again reinforces for me the belief that a true 6 footer, when slender and medium framed, can look a strong 6'1" on screen. Kind of like how Hayden Christensen was thought to be 6'1 or 6'2, his slim frame made him appear 2 inches taller. And I really doubt Ford was any taller tan the statuesque Christensen... Maybe 1/4 inch or something at best.

The Conversation is a very good film agreed, and a groundbreaking one in terms of the approach, but clearly not Coppola's best. He was arguably the best film director of the 70s though, although Kubrick overall is my favourite.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 29/Jan/14
6'1 was likely his stage height in shoes. His peak stature was 6 foot, maybe a touch over 6'. But he could look a strong 6'1 because he was lean in the 70's-80's, probably 170- 175 lbs. and he even lost 15 lbs for Apocalypse Now, where he looks like a skeletal 160.

From Star Wars in '77 to Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, measurements of his movie props show him to be modestly sized: wore a 38 - 40 jacket!, 15 1/2 neck, 32-34 pants, size 7 1/8 hat, and size 10-1/2 Alden 405 boots. Even as late as the 'fugitive' in '93, he was listed at 6 ft and 175 lbs on the "wanted" poster for the movie, and is photographed standing against a line-up which shows him to be 6'1,in shoes!. Ford may have been a strong 6' in his 20's - 40's, but most men do lose 1" or more by age 70, so he's 5-11 flat nowadays.

but yeah, Im 6 ft and 165-170, and 38-39" around the chest, and 32" around the waist, so its hard to see a guy much heavier than me with those proportions. But hey, 40 years ago a 175 lb 6 ft guy was 'leading man' material... nowdays you gotta be 220 , 6'3 and ripped.

Arches, in the first Indiana he looks 6ft-6ft0.5, in the second 'nd third movies he looks 6ft while in the last one he looks 5ft11.

He was probably still at least a strong 6ft when making Patriot Games.

About 6ft.25-6ft.05 in patriot games. You could tell by that stage years of injuries took a toll on his height and posture which is why he might have looked 5'11ish in the movie at times. I also think ford was roughly 6ft.05 up until 1997 and then no higher than 183cm by the end of the 90 s.

184-185cm in the early 80s no doubt

So if Harrison Ford was only 180cm in Patriot games how tall was Sean Bean 5'8?

Funny u mention Sean bean at 5'8 because my dad spoke to a taxi driver who met Sean bean and the taxi guy described him as being "5ft8"

Never struck me as being short....During Star Wars he appeared to be at least 6'....but then again he could have easily been 5'11"(which is not short..only 1 inch from being 6')...think about it.....I believe he wears shoes with heals in Star Wars and it probably gives him and added 1 to 2 inches in 5'11" becomes 6' to 6'1 very possible and easy explanation.

He's lost quite a bit of height, though, I can't tell whether it's that, or if he's just permanently bent over. Because, he often looks little taller than 5'10", these days, and I'm not exaggerating for effect. Great actor, but he's aged pretty terribly.

realist said on 8/Nov/13
As I have stated before Harrison Ford in his younger years, before his back injury on the set of Temple of Doom was easily 6'1 you only have to watch some of his earlier work to realize that! But I admit now he is probably 5'11 flat the vagaries of age and his injuries.
JG said on 2/Nov/13
I just saw Harrison Ford yesterday on the upper east side of Manhatten. I almost bumped into him, he was that close. I'm 5'11 and he is no 6 feet. Not that anyone should care how tall he is but my perception has always been that he was considerably taller.
Paddie said on 25/Oct/13
Firstly, people do not realize that: from a medical point of view, you don't usually shrink as much as 1.5 - 2 inches. Doctors clearly state 1 inch is already a lot for someone to lose in his height by the elderly age.
Secondly, Click Here There's an inch of difference. Bradd Pitt has always been doubted as a 180 cm guy. It's very likely that he is a 178 cm guy ( his posture/body/short legs frame clearly advocate this opinion ).
Thirdly, as someone here mentioned already, Ford is around an inch shorter than Hauer in Blade Runner. Hauer has always been thought of as a strong 6-footer, possibly 6'0.5'' feet tall. Thus, it is more than obvious that Ford cannot have been taller than 6'0'' tall.
Conclusion, Ford is around 5'11.5 mark, while Pitt around 5'10''-5'10.5''.

If you see Blade Runner, you will notice Rutger Hauer who was 6'1" at the time is clearly taller than Ford. I do not think Ford was a full 6 feet in his prime, he was most likely 5'11". Regardless of his height, he has made millions.

Harrison Ford's character, Han Solo has been described as being 180 cm tall, which is about 5'11". I somehow do not think he was ever 6'1". I do not think his current height is 5'11. He was recently photographed with Arnold Schwarzenegger who is now 5'11" and Arnie was an inch taller. I think he is currently 5'10" as he stood at equal height to Daniel Craig.

Rob is right(big surprise) Ford is the kind of guy who would have started losing in his 40's. By afe 50 would have defiantly measured shorter, what with the abuse his body has taken. I think this listing is perfect, 184 is still arguable, but a weak 185cm is the "holy grail", and I will protect it till the end!!!

Hei rob but if in an article they mentioned he was a little above the six foot how can you judge his height as six feet and 3/4? They should had written weak six foot one...

I agree he could have been as low as 184cm, but he could look 6'1 as well. I too think 6foot0.75in is the holy grail; explains discrepancies, he was a weak 185cm. Today, looks flat 5'11 a lot, but could be 181cm.
Lorne? said on 17/Jul/13
Yes!!! Thank you, Rob. I love Harrison Ford, but have been waiting for you to put him at the "holy grail" of 6ft0.75in for a while. Wasn't sure if you would bother with the 0.25in, yet didn't want him at 184cm, but you pulled through. 6ft0.75 just seems right for him! Perfection!!! Seriously though, good call Rob.
Lorne said on 17/Jul/13
LOL at the holy grail, Rob. And 6ft0.75 is perfect, spot on, Rampage/Jake. Today, you could argue 180-181cm range, but saying 5'11 is simpler, he's 70 so will hit 180cm soon enough...
[Editor Rob: I am actually going to go with the 0.75 for him now.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/13

Harrison Ford's Height is 5ft11/180cm. Peak Height was 6ft0.75/184.5-185cm. I think 6ft0.75 is perfect for Ford. You could argue 6ft0.5 or 6ft1(184-185cm range), however, I think it's clear he was never a strong 6ft1 guy, yet I think he was very close when he was younger. Personally I believe the injuries to his body caused him to start losing height early. Though he could have easily been 184cm peak, I think a weak 185cm is fair. Today, he has lost a significant amount of height. At best, he's 181cm, but I doubt he's over 5'11 evening. So there is my evaluation of a legends height. Thanks!!!

In the last ? Indiana Jones he looks just a bit taller than Shia le beof (spelling?) , but that can be strange camera angels
Realist said on 21/Jun/13
Harrison Ford was defo before his back injury 6'1 ,
Or Carrie Fisher is 4'11 and Mark Hamill is about 5'4 lol you only have to watch any of his late 70s or early 80s films Harrison was at least 6'0.

Yes i thought of the end of the Fugtuve where you can see tomy lee jones looks up to Harrison ford and he doesn't even stands straight, so there was 1 2 cm between them, so 184 5 is ok for him that day, now its possible he is just 180
ken said on 13/Jun/13
at peak he was very tall like 186, i think he saved his height still in the air force one he looked pretty tall or in the fogitive he was a bit taller than tomy lee jones, perhaps 184-5, after that he seened loosing height, with 191-3 paul bettany in firewall he looked 182, perhaps 183, nowadays i think he is again a bit shorter but still not a short guy, i would go with a strong 181 but minimum 180, he still looks strictly taller then 178 guys
Brad said on 8/Jun/13
Figure in back problems for decades and the not standing up straight. As listed.
Realist said on 7/Jun/13
watch Air Force One with both Oldman and Ford,
Harrison is easily 3-4 inches taller than him in that film.
No Way! said on 6/Jun/13
He's in a new film with Gary Oldman (5' 9") who towers over Ford.
Terry said on 5/Jun/13
A weak 6ft. To me he looked about 5'11 in Star wars but deffo no shorter than that.
Marvin Rainwater said on 17/May/13
Rob, maybe you should consider downgrading Mr. Ford to 5 ft 11 nowadays, and 6 6 ft 0 - 1/2 inch peak (1 m, 84). In the '93 film "The Fugitive" the 51 year old Ford was an even 6 ft 1 with his shoes on, and if we subtract 2/3 or 1 full inch, Mr Ford was 6 ft 0 or 6 ft 1/3 inch tall at age 51. According to Dr. Hall's chart here Click Here most white men do not lose any perceptible amount of height between age 20 and 50, yet by age 70 they can lose 1 to 2 inches. It is very possible Ford was a full 6 ft 1 in the morning, in his 20's, 30's and 40's. But he seems a full two inches shorter now, which is consistent with a man of his age (almost 71).

He looks significantly shorter than Chadwick Boseman in 42 who claims to be 6' even. Perhaps this was done purposely to make Chadwick look bigger or HFs character more like his real-life counterpart?

6'0.5 peak 5'11 now is closer rob
miko said on 30/Apr/13
Rob I'm thinking he might just be a flat 5'11 in 2013?
[Editor Rob: he is starting to look closer to 5ft 11 a lot of the time]
SantaMonica said on 29/Apr/13
I see lots of celebs around here. Saw him in a local Starbucks. I'd say 5'10" or 5'11". He was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt, by the way, and somewhat unshaven. Looks his age.
Jane said on 28/Apr/13
He looks as tall as Asa here Click Here

Asa recently told that he's around 5'10
kevin said on 26/Apr/13
on craig ferguson he looked more like 180-181cm. also peak may have been only 184cm.
berta said on 22/Apr/13
maybe tima to downgrade him a little?
DML 5-10.25" said on 18/Apr/13
He looks like 5-10" stand next to Daniel Craig

John said on 13/Apr/13
Will ferrell is 6'2 so yes, indeed.
Kyuss said on 13/Apr/13
5-11ish sounds pretty right.
John said on 7/Mar/13
Here's Harrison Ford next to 6'3 Will Ferrell.

Click Here

Ford's definitely under 6ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/13
Looked a weak 6ft1 in Blade Runner with 6ft1.5-6ft2 Rutger Hauer but weirdly enough appeared 6ft1.5 in Working Girl.
crusintheatl said on 27/Jan/13
In Blade Runner (1982) he looks only 182cm. I don't know about 6'1" perhaps 184cm. Whatever his height actually is looks good on him. His body would look off if he was any taller or shorter.
Steve said on 10/Jan/13
Right.I was on holiday in Sicilly and was sitting next to Harrison Ford in a restaurant in Cefalu. When it came to paying the bill he got up and I was standing near him. He had shorts and sandals on and stood about an inch and a half taller than me and I am 5'9" tall. I was surprised how much smaller he looked in real life after seeing him in movies over the years. But unhappily we all shrink as the years go by and for a man of around 70 years old he looked pretty good.
Clay said on 25/Dec/12
Stated as a 6'1 180 lb fugitive in "The Fugitive"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/12
Is 5ft11 flat possible today, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he's heading that way...lots of injuries, but he may pull a 'Terry Wogan' and get his knees sorted and regain an inch !]
Illustratedkid said on 13/Dec/12
Harrison hurt his back during Temple of Doom, and had to have surgery. He was never as tall afterward. No way he is over 6 in Regarding Henry
Bruno said on 23/Nov/12
Doubt if he was 6'1'' peak, looking at Patriot Games(1992) and standing toe to toe with James Fox he looked at least 1'' lower. James Fox is listed at 6'1''.
aabbcc said on 17/Nov/12
I think he slouches a lot now that hes older hes still 6 ft
James said on 12/Nov/12
He looked 180 or 181cm compared too Daniel craig
John said on 11/Nov/12
There's just no way in hell he's 5ft11.5...I just saw a pic of him with Daniel Craig, and Craig is standing taller by a half inch. Craig is about 5'8, so even with lifts, it's hard to imagine he'd be taller.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 10/Nov/12
A good case can be made for a downgrade of his peak, but after the Daniel Craig photos his current height should be downgraded no doubt.
miko said on 7/Nov/12
He's looking hunched around the neck area of late. I'm thinking he might be 5'11 flat now.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 4/Nov/12
More likely 184 than 185 at peak, taller than 6'0 but not quite 6'1, Kevin Costner is a classic example of a real 6'1.
Realist said on 3/Nov/12
Lol just watch Star Wars or Force 10 from Navarone and compare him to Robert Shaw in his earlier movies he was defo 6'1.
James said on 31/Oct/12
He's been 6ft since the mid 80's
Dmeyer said on 31/Oct/12
Is there a picture were harrison looking over 6 ft 0-0.25 , i have never seen one at 60 hé looked 182 alot lately 180-181 and 20 years Back around 183 cm but i never have seen look 184-185cm , in the movie hé did With Pitt hé seemed 6 ft and was near peak
Dmeyer said on 30/Oct/12
Rob whi do you think 6'1 Back in indiana jones hé was noticably shorter than 6'1.5 at that Time connery hé looked more 6'0-0.5 in peak i have never seen him apear over 183 but 184cm is likely today hé is at most 181cm but CAN look 182cm 5-7 years Back , 6'0.5 peak and 5'11.25 now will ne much closer
Dmeyer said on 24/Oct/12
To me this Guy was never more than 184cm and today 180.5cm was near 182cm 5-10 years ago
James said on 22/Oct/12
He probably stands at 5'11 a lot of the time cause of back problems but if he stood better he would be 6ft. Its like how clint Eastwood stands taller with better posture.

Do u agree rob that it might just be his posture making him look 5'11.
Aragorn 5'11 said on 20/Oct/12
He's definitely 5'11 nowadays. He's 5 inches shorter than Jeff Goldblum (6'4). And he isn't that much taller than Daniel Craig. At his peak he might have been 6'0 or 6'1.
kevin said on 18/Oct/12
if i had to bet my money on fords height i would guess solid 184cm peak and 181cm today.
James said on 11/Oct/12
Editor Rob says on 11/Oct/12
There's a good shout he might have been 184cm, at least 2 articles 10 years apart mentioned him being a touch or little over 6 foot...he might have said it one point himself.

Is a peak height down grade on the cards in the next few days rob?
