Harrison Ford's Height
5ft 10 ¾ (179.7 cm)
Peak height was 6ft ½ in (184.2 cm)
American actor best known for playing iconic characters like Indiana Jones and Han Solo in the original Star Wars trilogy. Other memorable films over his career have included Blade Runner, The Fugitive, Witness, Air Force One and Patriot Games. He's had a lot of injuries to his body over the years by virtue of his physical roles. In a few articles in the 1980's it mentioned his height as being a bit over the 6ft mark.

Nothing changes a bit of Adam Driver look 6'2 1/2 with current Harrison Ford.
Slim 6'1" said on 14/Jan/21
Maybe he could’ve been 6’ and five eighths for peak but absolutely no higher than that 👍
Slim 6'1" said on 14/Jan/21
179.5 today is entirely possible
CDS said on 8/Jan/21
@Rising: oh I agree, just thought was strange. John would certainly have been fully grown by then, but could've been a matter of footwear?
Rising174cm said on 6/Jan/21
@CDS: I haven't seen that show in years so I don't remember how tall Travolta looked, but that's surprising. I always felt he looked at least 6' in his 70s and 80s films.
slim 6'1 said on 1/Jan/21
179cm current, rising is probably right take a quarter inch for today
CDS said on 30/Dec/20
@Rising: speaking of Travolta , did you ever notice on old episodes of tv's "welcome back kotter", John looked about dead even with 5'11" star, Gabe Kaplan?
Scoobydoo said on 30/Dec/20
After this interesting debate...my conclusion
1'83/ 1'84m young
No reason to discussion ,friends. Harrison was and Harrison is that.
Rising174cm said on 23/Dec/20
The downgrade is an improvement. As with Travolta, I interpreted the bit over 6 feet as 6'0.25", but 6'0.5" is definitely possible. However, I think 5'10.5" is the most Ford could be at 78 if he stood well for a measurement.
N.C. Ranger said on 15/Dec/20
@CDS I agree that Harrison Ford was probably a full 6’ 1” if he stood up really straight while being measured.
said on 14/Dec/20
Rob, I must ask what was the major reason for the downgrade not saying I disagree, sounds accurate, just curious since I always thought due to his lousy posture he could actually be the full 6'1"in his prime. Current height is probably spot on...
the just over 6ft is an interesting description...which appeared in newspapers long before the Internet. Sometimes this specific figure could be from the actor.
Look at John Travolta, he was described in 1978 as just over 6ft...then we see years later he says that too "a little over six feet".
berta said on 12/Dec/20
almost 184 peak and just over 179 now. lost little more than the average guy for his age.

Little over 6ft peak, around 5ft11 today
Soda machine said on 30/Nov/20
Lost quite a bit. Looks a strong 6-0 peak. Now 5-10.range
TheBat said on 24/Nov/20
6’0.5” peak is a good updated listing. Same with 5’10.75” for today.
N.C. Ranger said on 22/Nov/20
Harrison Ford could very well have measured a full 6’ 1” if he stood tall in the morning. It’s very likely that he was 6’ 3/4” throughout much of the day, maybe 6’ 1/2.” After a long day of work or strenuous exercise he could have crept down to 6’ 1/4” as his absolute low height. My best bet is that he could have ranged anywhere from 6’ 1/4” to a full 6’ 1” depending on the day and the time of day. I would say 6’ 3/4” is the best estimate.
berta said on 20/Nov/20
canson, he was first listed 6´1 many years then got downgraded to 3/4 and have had that listing for many years and now 184. i think this listing is the best. maybe to be exact i think he was 6 foot 3/8.
said on 16/Nov/20
@Berta: what was he listed before?
he sat on 3/4 for years
N.C. Ranger said on 15/Nov/20
I think if Harrison Ford stood straight and tall when he was young and at his peak height then it is very possible that he could have been a legit 6’ 1.”
berta said on 13/Nov/20
perfect downgrade. finally he got the 184 cm listing.
Sulu2020 said on 11/Nov/20
There was just a downgrade in both, the peak height and current height for this listing. Downgrades for either one or both for a listing can happen at any time.
Slim 6'1" said on 11/Nov/20
184.5 is still possible
Hulk.23 said on 10/Nov/20
@Phil: the fact Vic Armstrong claimed to be 6’ doesn’t mean he was a real 6-footer...I think there’re not much proofs that Armstrong was 6’/183cm while there’re a lot of proofs that Ford was 6’0.5/184cm. I think Rob’s current listing is perfect for him.
said on 9/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: 1.75”? Guess it’s not out of the question but it’s interesting
Well look at Ford with Karen Gillan
in a basic 3-inch style heel early this year.
I think he's at a point he could be under 5ft 11 now.
said on 9/Nov/20
@Philip Gaskell, you mean this pic? Click Here
Or this? Click Here
With the honorable exception of the 2nd photo, I don't see a "noticeable" height difference as you've put it. That's exactly how a 1 cm difference would look like in real life.
If you were referring to the 2nd photo, you may notice how Harrison is standing with military posture while Vic is a bit hunched, hence the larger height difference than on previous photo.
I agree with Rob's updated estimated, he's been a 184 range guy at his prime.
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Nov/20
184 range young
Canson said on 4/Nov/20
Peak listing looks good. Current is interesting
Vincent Caleb said on 4/Nov/20
These downgrades are great, but unexpected. I always had Ford at 184 peak. Nice listing.
N.C. Ranger said on 3/Nov/20
Although most people in the celebrity height guessing community believe Harrison Ford was 6’ 1/2” at his peak, there is certainly a possibility that he could have been a full 6’ 1.” 6’ 3/4” is very likely for a peak Harrison Ford.
Philip Gaskell said on 3/Nov/20
There is a pic from the set of Raiders of the Lost Ark where Harrison is stood on level ground, next to the stuntman mentioned Vic Armstrong who was 6 feet and Harrison is noticeably taller than him, 30 years later there is another pic of the same 2 men and it is the other way round, he definately lost considerable height over the years.
Slim 6'1@ said on 3/Nov/20
Agree with rampage he was 184-184.5 as a youngster imho
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/20
Ok, this would be the absolute lowest peak
Slim 6'1" said on 2/Nov/20
Hulk.23 said on 1/Nov/20
Finally! This is the best listing for him! I always thought he was at peak 6’0.5/184cm and then he started (in the middle of 80’s) loosing height. I think in the last crusade he was just 6’ while in the end of 90’s same height as mine (5’11.75). Today a shy of 5’11 is fine
Alfie_7 said on 1/Nov/20
Rob, I'd say Harrison was a genuine 6'1 at his peak, judging by how he looked about 2 inches shorter than a likely 6'3 Sean Connery in 1989, and in The Rise of Skywalker, he looked a fair bit shorter than 6'2 Adam Driver, but Adam was actually standing on a slightly elevated surface and Harrison still didn't look THAT much shorter.
I'd give Harrison a legit 6'1 in his prime and nowadays, i can't see anything below 5'11, it just doesn't feel right for him.
said on 1/Nov/20
In The Rise of Skywalker, he looked a fair bit shorter than Adam Driver, who is more than likely a solid 6'2, but Adam was on a slightly more elevated surface than Harrison was, and Harrison has probably lost a bit of height with his age, if they stood on the same surface, Harrison i think would only be about 2-3 inches shorter, more likely 2 inches.
I think Harrison may have been genuinely close to or directly at 6'1 in his prime, judging how he looked about 2 inches shorter than Sean Connery in The Last Crusade in 1989, nowadays probably just slightly under the 6' mark, but no shorter than 5'11 i say.
I think with Mark hamill, himself who seemed quite honest about claiming 5ft 7, I'm just not sure Ford truly looked 6 inches taller than him.
said on 1/Nov/20
Rob,a bit over 6'...Wouldn't that make him about the same as Travolta?Like 6'0.25 or even 6'0.5?If he was really close to 6'1 they would have given him that for sure.From all I've seen I feel 184 has to be the max.By the time he was 60 I wouldn't have guessed him over 182 with Calista Flockhart,not sure he already lost near 3cm by then
Ok I looked again.
In 1984 it was the stuntman who mentioned himself and Ford were the same height.
But it was the Editor of the article who mentioned a bit over 6 feet.
Then in 1994 another article in a different newspaper said "Ford is a little over 6 feet tall".
My feeling is that Ford may well have mentioned this at one point, but I never seen the direct quote for it.
To me, it seems strange both papers mentioned it a decade apart...and such a specific type of mention...
said on 31/Oct/20
Why did they say a bit over 6’ instead of a bit under 6’1”?
I am going to look at this again, as I want to remember exactly what was written...
Slim 6'1" said on 26/Oct/20
Downgrade current to 179cm
Slim 6'1" said on 24/Oct/20
184 peak is perfect
Current he’s dropped to 179
berta said on 23/Oct/20
saw a movie with ford from 1999 the other day. i thought he looked 180-183 range. i guess he looked 182 most of the time. he had probably lost 1 cm from his peak back then. i really start to think the guy wasnt mutch over 6 feet at all.
said on 21/Oct/20
Rob you should make a video for him similar to the Ben Affleck’s one :)
It's whether I've got energy and enthusiasm for certain celebs 😛 And time.
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Oct/20
He’s shrunk to 179cm range today
Ethan99 said on 29/Sep/20
184 on the dot would be a reasonable peak
TheDon1528 said on 25/Sep/20
Just under 5'11" these days and probably around 6foot and a half inch back in the day.
Slim 6'1" said on 24/Sep/20
Not 180 anymore, shrunk further to 179
Slim 6'1" said on 20/Sep/20
Dmeyer said on 29/Aug/20
max 179 with gosling
Rising174cm said on 24/Aug/20
He's been under 5'11" for years now; much closer to 5'10" nowadays. Ford was probably 6'0.25" peak with a possibility of 6'0.5" max. Straightened up, he might still be more like 5'10.25", but he's been bunched for a long time, is now 78(which is crazy thought if you're like me and grew up with him one of the top movie stars in the world) and sustained some serious injuries. Hell, a 2" loss is pretty normal by his age, much less for a guy with his injuries. It wouldn't surprise me if he can no longer straighten up above 5'10", but 5'10.5" is unquestionably the highest I'd go.
Slim 6'1" said on 14/Aug/20
Yeah 184-184.5 max
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Aug/20
Like amell & Cena, 184
180 now as old man
Hulk.23 said on 31/Jul/20
I think at times HF was in the 6’ zone, maybe a little under. In the famous fugitive mugshot he looks between 6’0.5 and 6’1 but he was for sure with shoes on and if you watch the movie then in a scene you can see even his shoes. Assuming his shoes were in the “almost inche” thick sole then he might have been in the 5’11.5-6’ zone according with what he looks a couple of years before when he played Indiana Jones in the last crusade (he looked a strong 6’/183cm). TLJ was instead at his peak so I think if measured he might have been a bit taller than HF. I think 6’ vs 5’11.75 or 6’0.25 vs 6’...
Keith Bacchus said on 30/Jul/20
Between 6 foot and 6 foot 1 max
Mister lennon said on 16/Jul/20
Towards the end of the fugitive, when they are walking together, when Jones is standing as straight as Ford, he was a little bit taller than Harrison.Quite similar, but Jones had the edge.
Peaks quite similar too.
Tall Sam said on 13/Jul/20
I'd be in the camp that Ford looked a smidge taller than Jones towards the end of The Fugitive, but then they could look quite similar. I'd actually be surprised to see Jones edge out Ford at their respective peaks.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jul/20
🎉🎁🎂 Happy Birthday Harrison! 🎂🎁🎉
Many Happy Returns to Harrison Ford, who today celebrates his 78th Birthday. My favourite films of his are 'The Fugitive', 'Witness' and the very creepy 'What Lies Beneath'. Have a great time, Harrison!
Mister lennon said on 12/Jul/20
Sorry, but in the fugitive, Tommy Lee Jones was a little bit taller than Harrison Ford, not the other way around.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jul/20
Willed190, any of those three are possible I think. Nearer 6ft1 than 6ft
Hulk23 said on 10/Jul/20
I think there’re good proofs that when he was young then he was an honest 6’0.5/184cm guy...today sometimes he looks a flat 5’11 but others he looks shorter...I think the fairest listing will be 6’0.5 peak and 5’10.75 today
Canson said on 10/Jul/20
He is slightly taller than TLJ in the Fugitive. Maybe 184 as listed and TLJ is 183
Willes190 said on 8/Jul/20
If anyone hasn’t already watched The Fugitive, then watch it – Ford is clearly taller than Tommy Lee Jones by around 1cm. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark also provides good evidence for Ford being above 6ft, since he is the same height – or even a hair taller – than John Rhys-Davies. I think all in all around 6ft½ and 6ft¾ is likely for Ford, I would personally like to see him listed at 6ft⅚.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jul/20
Harrison wasn’t a dinnertime 6ft1 like Costner but he certainly was not only 6ft either. What Rob has him at his perfectly fine
LIar Girl said on 20/Jun/20
Any film in the 90s he's easily still six foot, and Mightyman where did you meet him ?, notice you said lift instead of elevator, as far as Im aware Harrison spends all of his time in US with his young family.
Mightyman said on 8/Jun/20
Met him in a lift he’s 5’9. I’d guess 5,11 was possible in his youth. Looks in shape thou he had very strong looking working hands.
jano said on 8/Jun/20
I think already in riaders of the lost ark he was only 184 cm, perhaps in the first star wars film he was 185 cm but i would say rather 184.5 max and with Sean Connery he looked just 183-183.5, nowadays i would say 181 cm.
Jam Cherry said on 4/Jun/20
Peak could be closer to 185 cm back in the day now he’s maybe 181 cm on a good day
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/20
No, I think he had to have cleared 6ft by a reasonable margin.
6'4 and a half leperchaun said on 3/Jun/20
Tall though never taller than 5'11'' in Star Wars next to 5'7'' Mark Hamill. He shrunk to 5'9'' today. I wonder Chewbacca's real height.
Jkiller said on 20/May/20
Peak height was 6'0, nowadays around 5'11.
houss said on 7/May/20
He never looked the same height as Arnold and both listed at 180 cm !
Spencer said on 2/May/20
6'1" ish in the 70s.
berta said on 14/Apr/20
he never pulled of 6´1 he have not looked it in any single movie. in the conversation he looked 1 inch under hackman and hackman hade shoes that looked like 2 cm and ford was in 4 cm shoes. i mean you can clearly see how big the heels are in the shoes. even on his legs. that measn that he looked barely over 6 feet in normal shoes beside hackman i catn believe anything higher than 184,5 at the absolute max but i think bigger chanse he was 183,5. i think there is even a small chanse that he never was over 6 feet in the evening at peak.
berta said on 14/Apr/20
yeah in that movie it looked like brad pitt 180-181 and ford 183. from a peak of barely 184.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/20
I think he was still around 6ft in the late 90’s, 1in taller than Brad Pitt in Devils Own
Jug said on 6/Apr/20
He was probably quite near 6'1 in the three Star Wars films and in Raiders and Temple of Doom. By Last Crusade he had lost a little height, possibly due to injuries sustained on the set of Temple of Doom (I believe he damaged his spine riding an elephant). In The Conversation he really looked a strong 6'1 next to 6'2 Hackman, unless Hackman was really less than 6'2.
Linke said on 4/Apr/20
I wonder how tall his Indiana Jones costar Amrish Puri was? 5'11 peak?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/20
Pre-Indiana is where you’ll get the most accurate estimation of Fords peak. He looked tall in American Graffiti and The Conversation. Easily pulled off 6ft1 next to Ron Howard and Hackman
said on 13/Mar/20Click Here
Is it possible he was under 6 foot peak rob? Here's a mugshot of him in shoes, and he looks under 6 foot if u ignore his hair. looks 5'11.5-5'11.75, and that's in shoes
It's possible he was 6ft 1/2 in 30's and started having some injury-related loss in late 40's and 50's onwards.
Jamestherealone said on 27/Feb/20
184 cm (6' 0.5") peak height is the maximum I would argue for him. Never looked 185 cm to me.
Canson said on 20/Feb/20
@Rampage: yea to me the 2” loss looks steep. I would say 1.5” probably. I don’t rule out 6’0.75 being he was listed 6’1” 185 in the Fugitive too. Then again Clarence Gilyard was called 6’0” on Walker Texas Ranger lol when he boxed in one episode. Gil yard is shorter than Norris by a hair. He’s listed 5’8 on the web
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/20
Canson, that would the lowest I’d argue for his peak
Canson said on 15/Feb/20
Peak height 6’0.5 if he’s 5’11 today. 2” loss looks steep
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Feb/20
I don’t think he fell below a flat 184cm in his prime. Dropped close to it maybe at a low but never shorter. Easily had 6ft1 for most the morning. About the same as Henry Cavill, Bradley Cooper and Chris Pine
A 6ft0⅝ listing might be feasible
LIar Girl said on 7/Feb/20
6'1 late 70s, early eighties 6'0 , now 5'10 5'10.5
Jamestherealone said on 25/Jan/20
I agree with @RichardSpain, somewhere between 1.83 and 1.84 was probably Harrison Ford peak's height.
LIar Girl said on 13/Jan/20
Oh dear if Harrison is 5'9 then a hell of a lot of actors need downgrading he may have shrunk to 5'10'11 but hes nearly 80 for feck's sake the tallest 5'9 I have ever seen, and just out of interest if you look at Peak height pics of Ford at the Raiders of The Lost Ark Premiere if Ford is 5,9 Pat Roach is 6,0.
Davey Boy said on 10/Jan/20
Was shocked, shocked, when I met him a few years ago while selling aviation insurance to him. Met at Santa Monica airport. No longer in this business, so I can speak freely. But Ford was small and wirey, maybe 5’9” but very slight. His head is slightly oversized which gives the illusion of bulk, but he was tiny. Zero charm, not even a hello. Not a bad guy. Was polite but checked out.
RichardSpain said on 8/Jan/20
Always in 183/184 zone more or less. Not taller than 184 not shorter than 183 cm.
Today 180 cm maybe 180'5
Caldonio said on 2/Jan/20
I would actually put him 6-0 or under peak.
berta said on 31/Dec/19
its strange that he really looks weak 185 guy beside mark hamill and carrie fisher in first star wars. maybe he really lost height alreaady in the early 80s. But still over 184,5 is hard to believe from all. the average guess seems very close to what he was and is.
Vsquad said on 22/Dec/19
He's 5'10.5 now maximum. Ryan Gosling looks way too tall next to him to even consider 5'11, and it's not just his bad posture at an old age either.
James B 172c, said on 19/Dec/19
In frantic Harrison ford still looked tall for sure. 4 years later in patriot games looked shorter though so maybe shrunk from 6ft0.5 too 6ft between 1988-1992?
However that said in working girl Harrison didn’t look that much over average height
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 13/Dec/19
Ironically, Ford looked taller as Indiana Jones than he did as Han Solo, and he filmed Raiders of the Lost Ark several years after Star Wars. He was 35 years old in 1977, although I honestly thought he could've been as young as 25 in Star Wars, he did not look like he was 30-something. Raiders of the Lost Ark came out in 1981, so he was 39 years old. So, he was definitely not old enough to have lost a fraction or to have grown, but I guess the Indiana Jones attire was well-tailored to his stature and physique, so it complemented his height greatly.
LEROY said on 25/Nov/19
ALWAYS THOUGHT HARRISON FORD WAS A SOLID 6 FOOTER
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/19
Berta, have you watched American Graffiti?
Towers over Ron Howard and is easily the tallest guy there. I really don’t think he was far off 6ft1 in his prime. Nowadays though I agree he looks like he’s struggling with 5ft11
berta said on 19/Nov/19
from Movies it looks like:
184 cm peak
about 183,5 around 1985-1995
about 183 1996-2002
about 182,5 2003-2007
about 182 2008- 2010
then it goes faster
about 181 2010-2013
about 180 2014-2017
about 179,5 2018-
Im probably up to 1 cm wrong on these Estimates but i feel his height was pretty Close to this. He doenst look the full 5´11 anymore ( similar to current Nick Nolte) closer to beetween 179-189, he can look only 178 today but probably Close to 180 if measured.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/19
Only times he ever really pulled off 6ft1 range was American Graffiti, Conversation and maybe Star Wars
Jamestherealone said on 2/Oct/19
1.84 m (6' 0.5") in his prime.
FromSpain with love said on 1/Oct/19
Also Ford is older than Daniel,and he has bad posture. If you watch any pictures Ford next to craig , Craig looks taller than Harrison Ford o very similar. But Ford is a bit taller than Craig nowadays.
Ford maybe 179cm or 180 cm barefoot nowadays
Craig 177 cm barefoot+ his elevator shoes maybe 181/182 cm.
It's my guess
Giibii said on 1/Oct/19
He always looked like a taller guy especially in the Indiana Jones movies. He looked very close to 6’1”. But unfortunately do to bad posture looks like he’s lost almost two inches
FromSpain with love
said on 30/Sep/19
I think Daniel Craig has elevator shoes or lifts in that pic you sharing. Please look this other picture ; look the shoes of Daniel
It's a decent heel, giving at least 1cm more than Ford
Nik Ashton said on 19/Sep/19
The average guess for his current height is 5’11” (241 votes!)!
Rising174cm said on 11/Sep/19
Ford really hasn't looked a full 5'11" in years now. I think he was down to about 5'11" a decade ago, maybe still a hair over then, but he's certainly lost a noticeable amount of height since.
Johan 185 cm said on 21/Aug/19
RichardSpain said on 31/Jul/19
Mr Ford was exactly exactly 184cm young and 180cm today.
Arnie ( Arnold) in 2009 maybe still 184cm and Harrison 181cm. So for this reason Arnold is a little taller than Ford
Doesn't really look more than 2cm between Arnie and Ford. 183 cm to 181 cm there I feel.
I agree with your peak of 184 cm just not sure if Harrison is dipping into the 179 range today.

said on 18/Aug/19
He looks like similar range with actor from movie Casino Royale named Daniel Craig with 5ft 10... He doesn't even look 5ft 11 in some pic. 5ft 11 that's probably his height from 2000 era that I guessed long ago. I know this is pic of them from 2011. All I can say is that their height is almost same like 5ft 10 twin brother kinda way.
Anyways, its bit tough for me to guess his 2019 height cause he probably has lost bit more than in 2011...
CDS said on 9/Aug/19
@RichardSpain: I recall seeing armies and Ford standing next to each other at an event, sometime in the 90s I think. And from what I recall, arnie edged out Ford by at least a good inch?
RichardSpain said on 31/Jul/19
Mr Ford was exactly exactly 184cm young and 180cm today.
Arnie ( Arnold) in 2009 maybe still 184cm and Harrison 181cm. So for this reason Arnold is a little taller than Ford
berta said on 23/Jul/19
i think ford could have been shorter than guys like henry cavill and chris pine at peak. they are like 184-184,5 and ford was maybe just under 184. Its really clear when they even say " little over 6 foot2 we all know that it means at best 6 foot 1/2 inch. if he was the listed height it would have said " almost 6 foot 1". he probably was 6 foot 3/8 but people want him to be taller because of his iconic roles.
Johan 185 cm
said on 17/Jul/19Click Here
Was shorter than Arnie in 2009, Arnie was still around 6'0" then. So maybe 5'11.25-5'11.5" then but definetly shorter now.
Looks like less shoe but easily 5 cm shorter than a 184 cm listed Gosling.
At peak difficult to find pics where he isn't leaning or having disadvantage .
If only he didn't lean here.
From what I have seen he was max 5" taller than Mark Hamill but then again in that period alot of guys had also big footwear. He didn't look more than 5" under Prowse either.

6 foot 3/8, same height as tommy lee jones at peak. He have lost alot of height but at the same time he is pretty old now.
said on 28/Jun/19
Rob, mightn't a 6'0.5 peak height be better for Ford if only for the sake of consistency? It would be more in line with the current listing as well as the average guess. 184-184.5cm peak and 180-180.5cm now. 1.5 inches of loss seems likelier than 1.75 inches at this point in time anyway.
6ft 0.5 to 0.75 might have been his peak range, more than say 6ft 0.75-1 range or 6ft to 6ft 0.25
179cm guy said on 28/May/19
He would've been edged out by Ahmed Best, Jon Hamm, and James Gandolfini at his peak. Legit 184cm at his peak, and legit 5'11 now. Probably entering 179cm range within the next few years but not yet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/19
A 70’s Ford was no shorter than Cavill. Likely was 6ft1 before mid-day and afternoon/evening slightly below it. Not less than 184-184.5cm at dinner though.
Terry said on 1/May/19
Peak height was about same height as David Schwimmer. Nowadays though, around 5'11ish.
said on 25/Apr/19
Rob, would you say that there was a better chance of Billy Dee Williams being 181 cm at his peak or Ford being 184cm at his peak?
They both have a chance of those figures peak
Mister lennon said on 25/Apr/19
Solid or strong 6 peak. Strong 5'10 or weak 5'11 now. Never was 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Apr/19
A 188cm Hackman does equate to Ford being 184-185cm
Duffer 5ft 11 said on 22/Apr/19
He looked quite a bit shorter than Mr Connery in the 3rd installment of the IJ films - He may have been around a weak 6'1" in "The Conversation" (1972) but surely can nowadays be no more than 5'11.
said on 21/Apr/19
Rob is 6'0.5 possible for Harrisons peak height? I thought he looked more of a strong 6'0 than almost 6'1, in the fugitive when he has this pic taken of him with the height chart he looks to be just over 6'0, it's just his hair that touches the 6'1 mark.
That's a figure that he could have been, either 6ft 1/2 or 3/4 I think, I'd rule out a full 6ft 1 or 6ft to 6ft 0.25.
mohammad said on 16/Apr/19
Then = 184 cm
Now = 180 cm
CDS said on 13/Apr/19
@James the real one: not an unpopular opinion, and doesn't say anything to denigrate Ford. I'll do you one better, and guestimate his peak height as 6'0.25", end of day, barefoot. Maybe this listing is his mid day or morning height.
James the real one said on 12/Apr/19
I will state an unpopular opinion, which not everybody will agree with. I think many people here lack objectivity because they project Harrison Ford as an idol, the ultimate movie superhero, the man, etc. Thus, they want to believe Ford is 6' 1" (1.85). However, a closer analysis of the pictures/videos shows Ford is 6' 0.5" (1.84) in his prime. Nothing wrong with being 1.84, it doesn't make Ford less of a role model man.
Jtm said on 6/Apr/19
i think the video has been posted here a while ago. i thought he was still shorter than ford considering he was closer to the camera but that supports the 6'2 peak for hackman imo. i wouldn't go as low as 5'11 peak for ford but i doubt he was this close to 6'1. i guess the bit over the 6'0 mark like 6'0.25 in his younger days i could buy. i wonder if he actually did claim that height. he probably did because it was so specific.
CDS said on 3/Apr/19
@jtm: I haven't watched, the conversation, in a long time, but I'll take your word for it. I'd still say though, if Ford was wearing the 70s style platform shoes you described, that's still an argument for his peak being 6' barefoot minimum, since from what I recall in that film, he and hackman looked about dead even. So lets assume genes shoes had about an inch heel, and gene is 6'1" barefoot, 6'2" in shoes, and Ford was getting around 2" from his shoes, putting him at about even with gene. I just can't see his peak as low as 5'11". He completely towered over 5'7" Mark hamil in, star wars.

Ed(1) said on 20/Apr/08
I just recently rewatched The Conversation with Ford and Gene Hackman, and I was able this time to slow certain scenes down to see the difference between the two of them. I was always puzzled as to why Ford looked so close to Hackman's 6ft2 listed height, and now I know why. In the film Ford wears borderline Three's Company platforms to Hackman's flat soled dress shoes(with maybe 0.5-0.75 inch lift). Ford is still around an inch shorter than Hackman, with what looks to be an easy 1.5-2 inch lift in the heels.
The shoes are golden brown, and stand out very easy if you slow-mo the shots they are in together. Once again this only reinforces to me that Ford was 6ft, maybe a bit more tops, in his youth. With these heeled shoes he was probably near 6ft2 easy, along with his super slim build at the time which made him look even taller.
i just saw the scene on youtube and it's true. i have seen the film so many times but i never paid attention to the footwear . ford was wearing very suspicious footwear in conversation. i think that proves he really wasn't over 6'0 peak . if hackman was just 6'0-6'1 peak like a lot of posters think he was then ford was 5'11 peak at the very most!
CDS said on 1/Apr/19
@billionaireslayer: I would not rule out 5'10" for Ford now either, just thinking he might measure taller if he stood up straight, which he seems to rarely do. As far as Eastwood, we're in complete agreement, since I never thought he was the 6'4" peak listing. Yes, closer to a barefoot 6'2.5" peak, and now id guess barely 6'. He and Ford, along with Burt Reynolds, kirk Douglas, etc.. All seem to have lost significant height among the great stars of our time.
billionaireslayer said on 30/Mar/19
@CDS: I could see Ford being around 5'10 now pushing 80, but I still can't believe he was over 5'11 n half peak. I was watching Unforgiven and Hackman early 60's barley looked taller than what I believe a 5'11 n half Richard Harris who was the same age both with cowboy boots on. Harris might use lifts as he did look to have about an inch on Ford in Patriot Games, and Harris claimed to be 6ft. I also do not believe in Eastwood ever being 6'4, but around 6'2 n half peak. 6'4 with his big boots from the old spaghetti westerns. Hackman was also shorter than strong 6ft possible weak 6'1 Will Smith in late 60's by about half-to 1 inch.
CDS said on 25/Mar/19
@billionaireslayer: I wouldn't rule it out completely, but Ford has always had bad posture. I would agree on the 5'11" to 5'11.5" by the time he reached his 60s, with the height loss. Now, I would actually say closer to 5'10.5" , lower than this site has him at, including the average votes. As for gene hackman I Defintely wouldn't rule him out at 6'1" peak height. In fact, that was my guess over the 6'2" listing he's always had.
billionaireslayer said on 24/Mar/19
@CDS:only my opinion but I have seen a lot of his earlier movies such as the Conversation/and American Graffiti. I still see him being around 5'11-5'11 n half, He also wears boots in a lot of his films, I also think Gene Hackman was only around a strong 6ft maybe scraping 6'1 peak. Gene Hackman has always been older did not get big in films till he was around 40.
berta said on 23/Mar/19
Rob 6 foot 1/2 inch is really the best peak height. I dont believe Ford was taller than a guy like chris pine ore JOhn Cena, I could believe that they would edge him out.
CDS said on 20/Mar/19
@billionaireslayer: I guarantee Ford's peak height was well over 5'11.25". I suggest you watch some of Ford's early films from the 70s and 80s. And you'll see he holds his own comfortably with tall actors like 6'2" gene hackman. I'd say you're around an inch too low, although I do think the peak listing for him on this site is too high. I would say his peak barefoot height should be somewhere between 6' and 6'0.5"...
billionaireslayer said on 20/Mar/19
weak 5'11 to 5'11 n half prime
Spencer Dobkin said on 2/Mar/19
I agree with James. In Star Wars he really only looks 184 cm tops next to at most 171 cm Hammil. 6'0.5" peak at most.
Canson said on 27/Feb/19
Lol. Guess that’s what we have to look forward to later in life. Height loss. I would say 1.5” more than 1.75. Maybe 6’0.5 to 5’11
said on 25/Feb/19
Hey Rob, when approximately do you think Harrison started losing height?
I think in early 40's it is likely a small fraction and by age 50 a decent fraction lost.
Jamestherealone said on 21/Feb/19
He was never 6' 0.75" at his prime. That is too much. He was 6' 0.5" at most in his prime. 6' 1.5" in shoes and 6' 0.5" barefoot is the most he ever was.
Spencer said on 10/Feb/19
6'2" with shoes on peak. 6'0.75" barefoot.
said on 3/Feb/19
@Philip Gaskell Probably b/c he's right next to the camera and Snipes is way back in a different time zone. Unlike this... Click Here
said on 1/Feb/19
Camera angles are everything Click Here
. Looks quite a bit taller than Mr Snipes there.
said on 29/Jan/19
He was never 6'0.75" peak height. That's ridiculous. Here's Ford back in '93 looking very short next to 5'8.5" Wesley Snipes... Click Here
Also, how in the world can he still be 5'11" when he barely looks taller than 5'8' Alden Ehrenreich when not standing w/ perfect posture? Seriously... Click Here
@Rob: No offense, but I've never seen you get someone so wrong... I can't see how Ford is more than 5'10" next to 5'8" Ehrenreich... Click Here
said on 15/Jan/19
Rob why do you think he was 3/4 over 6'0". The guy himself claim just a bit 6'. 1/4 Would be a better listing and If Harrison really was 3/4 over 6' he just would claim 6'1
I don't know if he actually claimed the figure, it was a description of him without a quote...of course it may well have came from him, it did seem specific. A bit like Tommy Lee Jones - he had some specific figures and they were from his publicity/resume.
James the real one said on 7/Jan/19
Harrison Ford was 1.84 (6' 0.5") at most.
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 31/Dec/18
I think he was slightly over 6'0" in his younger days, but never looked as tall as other 6'1" guys did on screen. I don't think he was ever the full 6'1". He looked a flat 6 feet in Regarding Henry next to Annette Bening, looking only 4 inches taller. He might've been a weak 6'1", slightly under 6'1" as he was edged out a decent amount by Sean Connery in the Last Crusade. Harrison was at least an inch and a half shorter. I think he was 184 cm peak, more like 5'11" today since he didn't look too much taller than Daisy Ridley or John Boyega in the Force Awakens.
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Dec/18
@CDS: Yeah, Nolte can give a taller impression, but Nolte has been very clear with his height saying he's 6'0", but taller in the morning and that the boots make him look taller. How many would admit that? Nolte is also known to have worn lifts for Mullholland Falls so at least in that case we know why he looked tall. Nowadays, Nolte and Ford both might be around 5'10.5", imo. In Ford's case, it depends on how soon after Temple of Doom he lost height considering his injury filming that.
berta said on 23/Dec/18
I think Nolte and Ford was closer in height than they are listed. Could be Nolte 183,5 and ford barely 184. Pretty mutch the same height but if one is taller then i would think Ford but i wouldnt bet alot of money on it.
Judd said on 20/Dec/18
@CDS, actually i think Nolte is one of the most honest actor if we talking about height.
I think a 6'/183cm mark is reasonable for him until the beginning of 90's (I think in Another 48hrs  he was still 6').
maybe seemed taller than Ford because he usually wore heels under his shoes (for example in 48 hrs he seemed a legit 6'1/185cm next to Brion James but he visibly wore a pair of cowboy boots) but I will bet that if you will measure a peak Ford and against a peak Nolte then the chicagoan will be a fraction taller...0.5" is what i think but maybe even 0.25"...definetly 6'0.5/184cm peak for Ford and 6'0/183cm for Nolte are two reasonable estimates...
CDS said on 18/Dec/18
Nolte is another one for me that was a bit of a shocker, when I got to celebheights,, this should probably go on his page, but I always thought he was a good 6'1" or 6'2", and at that time, I would've expected him to be taller than Ford,,, which we all know now that was never the case, in fact, if anything, Ford at peak height, would've easily edged him out.
Judd said on 18/Dec/18
i think in 2002 (next to Ben Affleck) he was a 182cm guy (5ft11.75). Today he's a weak 5'11 while at peak was a legit 6'0.5/184cm.
Rising - 174 cm
said on 16/Dec/18
@CDS: You would think, but Mitchum did still look an imposing strong 6 footer in the mid to late 70's. As for Cape Fear, if anything Mitchum looks taller in their first scene together, which is indoors although Mitchum is walking in front of Nolte so he might be closer to the camera. After that, there's not a real clear shot, though I got the impression Nolte was taller. There are promo pics and stills, but it's hard to tell because posture and angles are all over the place Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
and they're outside so ground level is an issue. From what I've seen, I doubt there was a big difference either way by that point, but Mitchum was 73.
I don't agree with Rampage on Ford's peak, but I can see his point regarding The Conversation. Ford didn't seem that much shorter than Hackman.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/18
He still looked 6ft 18 years ago so that should be safely ruled out for his peak.
6ft0½ absolute worst peak. Still think the current peak is spot on. American Graffiti, The Conversation and the first Star Wars provide better representation than mid-late 80’s
CDS said on 11/Dec/18
@rising, you would think by then mitchum had lost height? I would've expected Ford to look taller at that time. How did mitchum look next to 6'(listed here) Nick nolte in the 1991 "cape fear" remake, does anyone recall?
Rising - 174 cm
said on 5/Dec/18
Here's a 43 year old Ford and a 68 year old Robert Mitchum in 1985: Click Here
Some of that could be the angle, but you wouldn't think Ford was taller there. Mitchum is listed here at 6'0" peak, but I really don't think he looked shorter than Ford. Both could have been 6'0.25", imo. I'd say Ford was still a solid 5'11" when he did the last Indiana Jones a decade ago, but doesn't really look it to me any more.
said on 5/Dec/18
Here are the pictures of Ford next to Ben Affleck from 2002:
Seeing Ford at the time I would guess about 6 feet for him. Rob, do you think Ford at the age of 60 could have been six feet tall?
He might have been reasonably close to that mark around 2002
Michael, 5'10" 178 cm said on 26/Nov/18
Harrison was barely 6’0” tall in the 70s and 80s, he didn’t look much taller than Sigourney Weaver. He is definitely a bit under 6’0” today, you can tell by how much shorter he looks in TFA and all the old actors, like him, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher clearly have all lost height since the early 80s. He didn’t look over 4 inches taller than Daisy Ridley or 3 inches taller than Boyega. I’d say that he was 6’0.5” at peak, 5’11” currently.
berta said on 23/Nov/18
it would be interesting to know about those articles " that describes him little over 6 feet" if he claimede 1/8 over 1/4 ore 1/2 inch over 6 foot to them. We can al agree that it isnt the listed height because then you would say " almost 6 foot 1". I would go for 1/4 over 6 foot could be 184 flat on good days.
JamesB172cm said on 21/Nov/18
Yeah just 6ft looks believable for his peak
Mark Harrison said on 16/Nov/18
He was never 6'1" at his peak. More like six foot even.
TheBat said on 10/Nov/18
6'1" peak and 6'0" currently.
Yang (5ft 8 Chinese men) said on 4/Nov/18
Current height is presumably solid 5ft 11 180cm while his peak height during filming indiana jones back in early 1980s would be 6ft half 184cm or so. Lost 1.5 inch heights so far...
berta said on 31/Oct/18
i wouldnt bet money on FOrd being 185 cm peak. 183,7 ish peak and 178,5 today seems realistic. Maybe 179 still
James Keffer said on 8/Oct/18
Seems to be 181 barefoot. 183-184 was his peak though.
Johnson said on 3/Oct/18
In El Hormiguero a few years ago he looked legit 5'11 gurufans!!
Scoobydoo said on 2/Oct/18
Between 183-184 was his height.
Nowadays 179cm barefoot I agree with Berta
James the real one said on 10/Sep/18
Peak 1.84 (6' 0.5").
Benny said on 7/Sep/18
Peak is 6’1. Current is 5’11.5
MAD SAM said on 10/Aug/18
Peak would be easy 6’1” at 185 cm, currently probably 5’11.25” at 181 cm
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Jul/18
@Ross Mc Cartney: Connery was pushing 60 by that time and I believe he had already lost some height since he was shorter than Kevin Kline at the 1989 Oscars and Kline is listed here at 6'1.5".
berta said on 28/Jul/18
the guy was weak 184 guy and 179 guy today. He wasnt 185 cm :P many just want him to be that because of his iconic roles.
James B 172cm said on 25/Jul/18
rob in the early 90s was harrison ford a 6ft guy who often looked 5ft11 because of posture?
Ross Mc Cartney said on 24/Jul/18
I know he was 1,85 cm. 3 cm less than Sean Connery, as we can see in the movie "Indiana Jones and the last crusade"
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Jun/18
He did measure up pretty well to Gene Hackman in The Conversation, but I still think 6'0.25" peak or 6'0.5" max and I agree with 5'10.5" max these days. He's been looking around the 5'10" mark(with bad posture) for years now when you remember him with Daniel Craig and Sly Stallone, but I think he's lost a bit more seeing that video.
Ulrik600 said on 18/May/18
I agree with the others here recently. Harrison Ford doesn't look anything above 5'10.5 these days. I see him as anything from weak 5'10 to 5'10.25. I'm convinced you have him too high Rob.
berta said on 17/May/18
yeah beside 173 Alden Ehrenreich he doesnt look a mm over 178. more like strong 177. But i give him 178,5 still
CDS said on 17/May/18
I saw Harrison next to Alden and recalled Alden standing next to woody harrelson at the Cannes film festival. From my estimates that would make Harrison currently only about an inch taller than woody, so 5'10.5" current height.
said on 14/May/18
It’s interesting. Harrison Ford looked not much taller standing next to Alden Ehrenreich.Click Here
Scoobydoo said on 11/May/18
Next to Ryan Gosling ( 184cm) , uncle Harry seems 178/179cm nowadays not strong 180 cm. If you see the pic that @6footTom sharing us. Anyway maybe Harrison Ford has a bad posture he is older.
CDS said on 10/May/18
Rampage makes a very good point, like with brad Pitt, who you have to go back to his early career pre-lift days to show he wasn't that tall, with Harrison Ford you have to go back to his early career pre-shrinking days to prove he actually was easily 6 ft plus back in the 70s and 80s, and maybe even early 90s? I don't know that I would give him a solid 6'1" barefoot peak height but certainly at least 6'0.25" to 6'0.75", depending on the time of day of course. And today, probably between 5'10" and 5'11". The 1st time I noticed his very visible height loss was the 2006 film "firewall" where Paul bettany easily had 4 inches on ford, so I'm thinking Paul is like 6'5". Then I check online and see that he's only 6'3"...
Jordan87 said on 8/May/18
I'd put him closer to 6' even. He had Billy Dee by around an Inch and Williams was around 5'10.5 in his prime ( He as a picture with Rob at his age now and is 5'9.75). 5'11.5 to 6'.
6'1 is too much for Ford.
berta said on 1/May/18
look at the heels he had when walking with gene hackman. there was just over 1 inch beetween them and then fords shoes gave atleast 1,5 cm extra in heihgt.that is 4 cm difference, gene was 188. ford was 184 and if gene was 187 as many believe then ford could have been 183. the shoes he had in that scene was almost like lifts. The conversation is a good example for a 184 listing. he was 100 procent still at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/18
No berta, it's just most people here are so biased by focusing just on the 80's onwards when his height loss started. Go back the 70's and you will find plenty of evidence to support Ford once being about 6ft1. In American Graffiti, he's like the second tallest guy there and towers over just about everyone. In The Conversation was looking about eye to eye with Hackman in some scenes, no more than an inch...pretty much identical to how Costner looked beside Hackman a decade later in No Way Out.
This guy in his 30's would have edged out Gosling and been similar to Keanu Reeves
sausage said on 26/Apr/18
Enough with the downgrading lol he's 75 years of age ffs he might be might be near 5'10 now , but in his earlier years was easily 6'1 or very nea1ry 6'1, 3 inches taller than 5'10 Robert Shaw , simalair to 6'2 Gene Hackman, at least 5 inches taller than Mark Hamill and an inch to 2 inches taller than Billy Dee Williams and he never wore lifts or big heels.
haxxx said on 24/Apr/18
Rob I think it's time for a downgrade to 5'10.5 currently. look at him next to legit 5'11 people, 5'10 people and 6'0 people.
berta said on 23/Apr/18
same height as peak tommy lee jones. Rob i think youre spot on with most listings but ford is pretty clear that he was no shorter than 183 and no taller than 184,5. never looked taller than 184 in any indiana jones movies not the first one either. most guys here would agree if the listing would go down to 184. I think many would like him to be 185 guy because of his iconic rolls.
Scoobydoo said on 23/Apr/18
I'm still thinking that Harrison never was more taller than 183 cm in peak barefoot. He always had good look in his movies, thin, big hands... all this helps to seem taller.
Deacon Ashworth said on 21/Apr/18
I knew he was somewhere around 5’11, he didn’t seemed like a strong 6’1 in films.
said on 21/Apr/18
Doesn't really look over 5'10" these days, especially when he's standing next to Ryan Gosling.
said on 17/Apr/18
Hey Rob, how tall do you think he was at the time of Witness (1985)? That was his only Oscar nomination.
Not impossible he lost a fraction by then through initial injuries in early 80's films, but he generally didn't seem above 184 by late 80's.
sulu2018 said on 9/Mar/18
Smaller than Gerard Butler, Garrett Hedlund, Mark Pellegrino, and Stone Cold Steve Austin all his life.
Newman said on 1/Mar/18
Would have to say 5ft 11 above is bang on. Lots of magazines used to mention him being 6ft or 6ft 1 in the 1990s but he never looked it. Probably helped that most of his co-actors in films like Star Wars and Indiana Jones were short.
berta said on 23/Feb/18
john cena is 80 procent chanse taller than peak ford.but ford could have been very close 6 foot 1/2 he was a tallish guy peak
Willes189 said on 18/Feb/18
He was amazing in Blade Runner 2049 and The Fugitive, by far his two best movies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Feb/18
No in the 70's he was near 6ft1, I certainly wouldn't argue anything less than a rock solid 6ft0½ in those days. It's obvious he was only an inch below Hackman in The Conversation, sometimes even less. Did he start to lose height early? of course but people are focusing a bit too much on the early 80's onward. He didn't quite look 6ft1 in Witness or Working Girl...and by Patriot Games and The Fugitive you could argue he was down to 6ft even.
What Rob has him on at peak is perfect.
Dmeyer said on 16/Feb/18
If they Saïd à lidl over 6 FT in the 80s that means max 6'0,25-0,5in maybe l'ESS AT 6'0,75 he would have been described 6'1-2
CDS said on 12/Feb/18
I don't think Ford looked a whole 2 inches shorter than Connery in the movie. Maybe an inch and a half. Which means if Sean was 6'1.5" peak height Ford could easily have been 6 ft when that movie was made when he was only 46.
James the real one
said on 10/Feb/18
A 47 years old Harrison looked 5 cm (2 inches) shorter than a 59 years old Sean Connery:
Of course, people will now put the excuse that Ford had suppousedly lost height because of his back injury during the Indiana Jones 2 movie. But that's an irrefutable and untestable assumption. Nobody measured him those days, and we cannot know whether he did lost height because of the injury.
I can accept Ford could have lost 1 cm at most at age 47 due to the back injury (untestable assumption). But then we should also accept that Connery could have lost 1 cm at age 59 due to his advanced age (another untestable assumption).
If Connery was still 6' 2" (1.88) Ford looked 6 ft (1.83). If Connery was 6' 1.5" (1.87), Ford looked 5. 11.75" (1.82).
Either way, it puts Ford in the 6 ft peak range, since he looked 5 cm shorter than Connery.
James B 170.8cm said on 8/Feb/18
Not completely sure why this guy was popular with the ladies. Hes no george clooney is he?
Maybe his height bailed him out somewhat or the fact he looks like a normal bloke in hollywood who can act in many diverse roles.

Losing 1.75" thats alot at early 70s of age. my paternal side grandpa now at 85 only drop off from 5'7.25" to 5'6.25".

I'd say he's a great Hollywood star, maybe not the greatest actor, he's kind of a throwback to . If Tom Hanks is the Jimmy Stewart of the 80s onward, I guess Ford is the Gary Cooper or Henry Fonda of 70s onward, I actually like him better than Cooper lol, even if Ford comes off as a cranky older man. Ford is very good in movies like Witness, Blade Runner and The Fugitive at getting you on his side and expressing emotions with very little dialogue.

He’s tall. With Carrie Fisher he even looked taller. I assume 6’1 for his peak height. Well, at least he’s the coolest dude in the galaxy (and even Earth because of Indy??) Impossible to hate him...probably the best actor ever in the Hollywood industry.

He’s in that 183-185 zone. The man is tall.

Ford never looked more than 6'0" in the 1970s.

People who are using '80s movies to guess his peak height need to learn his biography. In 1983, he herniated a disc in his back and had surgery while filming Temple of Doom (the elephant ride followed by picking up the stunt man in the bedroom fight). Filming had to stop for months. He lost an inch in that one injury alone. Go back to Star Wars and you'll notice he was taller before (he was also very lanky before he beefed up for Temple, but he absolutely towers in the famous set footage of him walking with tiny Mark and Carrie). He looked every bit of 6'1" in the '70s, but after 1983, it's obvious he was 6' flat (he visibly shrinks between Raiders and Last Crusade). He's definitely 5'11" tops today. You can see that his torso was longer pre-herniated disc/back surgery.
He's had insane amounts of injuries over the years. These go back to the car crash in 1962 that broke his nose, which now leans sideways, and scarred his chin. He knocked out all of his front teeth when he fell on a rifle butt on the set of Gunsmoke in the late '60s (they're dentures). His body is busted all over. He just had two broken legs from the Falcon hydraulic door (he's limping in TFA in some shots) and his most recent plane crash with a new scar on his forehead (he's had a few plane crashes). But before that, he also had an out-of-control plane run over his now-replaced knee on the set of Raiders (the shot where it happened is in the film when he goes down on his butt and the wheel is headed for his knee), which he didn't get medical attention for because he didn't want to submit to Tunisian medical care. That's why he's dropped more than an average man his age. It's not only age, but the fact that he's abused and broken his body in accident after accident.

6ft bang on in his peak.

Harrison Ford was most definitely a solid 6 ft. 1” are peak.
CDS said on 4/Jan/18
In that photo Slim186 posted from "The Fugitive", not only does Ford easily edge out Jones, but TLJ is actually LOOKING UP AT HIM??! LOL Are we not looking at the same photo?? LOL
Mister lennon said on 2/Jan/18
He never was 6'1. Solid 6 at peak maximun.
James said on 1/Jan/18
Happy new year everybody. Harrison Ford was 6' 0.5" at his peak.
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 1/Jan/18
Harrison Ford was 6’ 1” peak, end of story.
Johno said on 30/Dec/17
Jimmy Fallon and Kimmel do edge him you know
berta said on 28/Dec/17
looked at first 2 star movies this week out of nostalgia he looks like a 184 cm guy in them not a mm over that. he can look strong 184 guy in the first because he is skinny in it but in other scenes under 184. i think we all can agree tht 184 is a better lissting. there is 0 procent chanse that he had 0,75 inches on nick nolte 40 years ago. more like 0,30 inches
Richard said on 27/Dec/17
The lifts were inside his boots. Ford was never more than six foot at his peak.
sausage said on 27/Dec/17
His boots are you serious? theres hardly a heel on them at all lol.
Mister lennon said on 27/Dec/17
Sorry, but jones edged out ford in the fugitive. I think that jones was a solid 6 in that movie and ford a weak 6.
The Shredder said on 26/Dec/17
Maybe between 6'0 and 6'1 peak . He has looked weak 5'11 for awhile now.
Richard said on 25/Dec/17
His boots made him appear 6'1" in the "Star Wars" films.
Jug said on 24/Dec/17
Ford looked a strong 6'1 in all of the Star Wars films, and not more than an inch shorter than Hackman in The Conversation. He may have lost height due to back injuries sustained on the set of Temple of Doom. He looked closer to six feet even in Last Crusade. I would give him the full 6'1 for a peak.
CDS said on 21/Dec/17
I don't know what movie berta and Judd saw, but I remember (and that photo confirms it) in "The Fugitive", Ford easily edging out Tommy Lee Jones -AND- Jones' posture looking better than Ford's. Although not by much. I would say TLJ is 5'11"-5'11.5" and Ford by 1993 was just about at the 6' mark.
berta said on 14/Dec/17
i also agree with judd that tommy lee jones edged out ford. in that movie it looks like tommy was weak 184 ish guy and ford 183 ish guy
berta said on 14/Dec/17
rob please give him peak of 184 cm its not many guys that think he is 185 peak. i actually looked at indiana jones yesterday (secend one) and he looked weak 184 guy the whole movie. for fun i asked my brother how tall he thought ford was and he said " 183-184 maybe? " i then told him that he is 185 and he was like " nah i dont believe it they exagerate everythin in hollywood".
Mister lennon said on 14/Dec/17
In that picture, jones is slouching and ford is standing straigth. In their two scenes together and both standing straigth, they looked almost the same, but jones being a little bit taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/17
Looks 186cm in that photo w/h TLJ!
Judd said on 13/Dec/17
the picture you've posted doesn't mean anything: HF has the best posture which he can have while the posture of TLJ is terrible...
then you've even to consider that the camera angle is not good.
If you watch the movie then you will notice that there're actually a couple of scenes where you can se HF and TLJ together and in all them HF never edged TLJ.
6'0.25" for TLJ and 6'0.5" is correct but i guess HF was still a 6 footer when he played Kimble in the Fugitive
Mister lennon said on 13/Dec/17
Jones is slouching in that picture. When they were together in the last scene of the film and both standing straigth, jones looked slightly taller.

He looked six foot in "The Conversation".
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 7/Dec/17
Actually, Harrison Ford really does look close to a full 6 ft. 1 in the conversation. He seemed a bit shorter in the last crusade. He looks more noticeably shorter in the fugitive, patriot games, and Air Force one and he is clearly shorter in his newer films such as crystal skull, Ender’s game, force awakens, etc.
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 7/Dec/17
I still think the full 6 ft. 1 in. is still arguable.
James said on 5/Dec/17
@Canson I remember my grandfather told me some years ago that he was exactly the same height at 75 than when he was young. I am skeptic lol, but I agree with you that some people lose very little height with age.
Canson said on 4/Dec/17
@Danimal: that isn’t necessarily true. My father is going to be 70 In less than a year and he is still right around 6’4 (at most he’s half inch shorter than me) so 6’3.75-6’4 and he was like 6’4”-6’4 1/8 peak. Also his brother (my uncle) was 6’3” peak and still about 6’2 1/2 today In his 70s
Scoobydoo said on 4/Dec/17
yes Hackman was nearly of the 6'2 feet mark in his peak.
Harrison near 6'1 but not strong 6'1
the conversation movie
Gene Hackman between 187/188 cm barefoot
Harrison Ford between 183'5/ 184 cm barefoot.
Jtm said on 2/Dec/17
That video with Hackman doesn't prove he was 6'1. He's clearly closer to the camera.
Mister lennon said on 2/Dec/17
Hackman was 6'2 at his peak.
Richard said on 2/Dec/17
Hackman was 6'1" at his peak.
Danimal said on 1/Dec/17
Doc said on 12/Oct/17
He looked 0.5 inch shorter than Gosling. Considering Ford was 6’0 spot on in his peak, he’s approx. 5’11-11.5’’ nowadays.
The average 75 year old man of which Harrison is today, will have lost just over 1.5" and 2" by 80 years old.
Danimal said on 1/Dec/17
sausage said on 29/Nov/17
6'1 70s , mid eighties 6 foot
He lost an inch by his early 40's (in the mid 80's)? Uhhhhh...no. That's not how it works.
Sam said on 1/Dec/17
He does look right on listing at least in that clip from The Conversation with Hackman, which I haven't seen in a long time. I don't see how you could argue six foot flat peak for Ford there unless you're going to claim Gene Hackman was 6'0.75" himself, you'd have to accordingly drop an inch from several of his co-star's listings.
Scoobydoo said on 1/Dec/17
Ford was 183'5 - 184cm in peak. Not more not less.
remember guys !here up the page says:
"In a few articles in the 1980's it mentioned his height as being a bit over the 6ft mark".
I understand this as he was a bit taller than 6 feet, a bit taller 6 feet could be between 183'5 cm /184 cm not a strong 6'1
184 cm peak strong 184 cm in the morning.
180/181 cm nowadays. strong 181 cm in the morning
He lost around 3 or 4 cm.
Bobby said on 30/Nov/17
I'm thinking 185cm would be a good shout for peak height Harrison Ford, but I honestly can't rule out that he was the full 6'1 in his 20s. It's possible that he was. Still a legit 6'1 at his peak height. He'd have measured 6'1.5-6'1.75 in the morning.
James said on 30/Nov/17
Ford never looked 6'1" in any film.
sausage said on 29/Nov/17
6'1 70s , mid eighties 6 foot , now lucky to be 5'11. Hes an old geezer that life hasn't been kind to in regards to injuries.
Walter Beego said on 28/Nov/17
Peak height = 5'11.5" Current height = 5'10"
James said on 27/Nov/17
Ford was 30 in "The Conversation". He was never any taller than six foot in ordinary shoes.
Scoobydoo said on 27/Nov/17
In other words, our friend big Harry was:
Nearly of the 6'2 mark when he was young
Nearly of the 6 feet mark nowadays. I see a strong 180/181 cm today.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year to Rob and company!
said on 26/Nov/17
Rob, is 6ft1 arguable in this clip from The Conversation?
He would have been 32 here
Editor Rob: still think a big 6ft 1 is just a bit much for Ford, anywhere in 6ft 0.5 to 6ft 0.75 I think is more probable now than 6ft 1 or 6ft flat.
said on 25/Nov/17
@Jeremy I agree with you. 6' 0.5" should be rounded up to 6' 1", instead of being rounded down to 6' 0".
After all it's essential mathematics. How to round numbers:
"Decide which is the last digit to keep
Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding down)
But increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding up)"
