Other memorable films over his career have included Blade Runner, The Fugitive, Witness, Air Force One and Patriot Games.

I agree Ford was no taller than 6'0.25", but it's not extremely rare to lose over 1" of height by Ford's age(75). In fact, based on a survey done on height loss, it's rather typical. The average for that particular survey was 4 cm by age 75. I know a number of men who are younger than Ford and have lost an inch or more. It varies from person to person.

It is extremely rare to lose over 1 inch of your height without suffering from a serious illness. Ford never looked anything above 6'0.25, so his current height around 5'11.5-6'0 seems about right
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Sep/17
I don't know why people assume movie mugshots are real. They're often set pieces. If Ford had actually been arrested, it might prove something. 6'0.25" for Ford's prime. I think Connery was about 6'1.5" by the time of The Last Crusade.

184 cm MAX with lucky was his peak
183 cm all times maybe starting his fifty years old.
Nowadays ( he is 75 years old) I agree with this website no more than 179/180 cm barefoot to Harrison is very possible.
He never looked a strong 185 cm in his movies and in his real life. He had advantage because was thin, long legs, big hands and powerful voice and all that made him look taller.
184 cm peak
179/180 cm today

@Sausage=i have not see others pic in the 1990s years inwhich Harrison look 6"1'(barefoot next to Wesley) .With the picture of Anonymous i doubt he was this height barefoot.Here is a mugshot inwhich a young Harrison in very probably shoes is around 72.5 inches so 184 cm,then more 181.5 peak (5"11.5')barefoot which could explain he don't towered Wesley= Click Here

There are numerous other photos with Ford and Wesley Snipes from that event, and Ford looks easily taller just a advantageous camera angle.

people lose so much height through the years
Tom said on 20/Aug/17
Has a slouchy posture, definitely looked 6 feet 1 inches in early movies
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Aug/17
If anything, I see Ford below 5'11" in recent years. Possibly down to 179 cm, but I don't know how much is posture. I can see as tall as 184 cm peak, but nothing over that.

now = a solid 1,800 mm , age 25 = a solid 1,840 mm
RichardSpain said on 16/Aug/17
Guys , I want to add that to me he looked only 1 cm shorter than Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner and Rutger was a strong 185 cm. But the problem we can't see a perfect face to face between harrison and Rutger Hauer. :-( I just guess it!
Could be 184 cm uncle Harrison in peak
And 185 cm barefoot to Rutger.
Also in "The Conversation" to me looked shorter than Hackman , maybe 2 o 3 cm. Hackman was 187 /188 in his prime. And here we have same problem there is no good plane between harrison and Hackman only we can "deduce".

Dingus said on 14/Aug/17
In an older Francis Ford Coppola movie called "The Conversation" Harrison Ford had a minor role. He stood next to Gene Hackman a few times and often looked only 5'11.00"-6'00.00". However the camera angle was almost always tilted in Gene's favor. I think he was over 6ft in his youth but is probably more like 5'11.25"these days. His current height needs a slight upgrade.
Canson said on 9/Aug/17
6' and change peak but over 6'1 out of bed by a hair to bring him around 6'.5ish
RichardSpain said on 9/Aug/17
If he had been a solid 185 cm or nearly 185cm ( 6'2 foot)articles would say about him a strong 185 but if articles mentioned his height as being a bit over the 6ft mark well as said @Rising a bit over the 6 feet is 6 ft 0.25 o maybe 6 feet 0.50. I understand it like that.
in other words the Harrison Ford's height in peak was between 183'5 cm-184cm not more but not less.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Aug/17
A bit over usually seems to mean about 1/4" or a small fraction and I do think Ford was 6'0.25", which fits with a 5'11" peak Billy Dee Williams, imo. As for today, Ford has looked to be struggling with 5'11" ever since Cowboys & Aliens with Daniel Craig. Interesting he was described as that, but I'll bet it didn't come from Ford because if he did ever say he was 5'11", he'd almost surely mention shrinking as well.

Out of curiosity rob, how could Henry Cavill and John Cena compare to a Prime Harrison Ford?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/17
The Conversation is proof that Ford was once near 6ft1
RichardSpain said on 1/Aug/17
Yes friends !, as I said before , next to Kevin kline who was a strong 187 or 188 ( 6'2) Ford looks not more than 183 cm barefoot and max 185 cm with footwear.
In that picture Ford was around fifty years is possible he lost 1 cm respect his peak.
Solid 184cm to Ford barefoot in his younger in peak is very probably but not more I think
Regards from Spain!
said on 28/Jul/17Click Here
If this guy (Kevin Kline) was really 6'1.5 peak, there is absolutely no way that Ford was ever taller than 6'. In this picture, he looks almost 3 inches shorter, so hardly 5'11. I have a hard time imagining that he was really that "average" at the time, but that's what it looks like here.
said on 27/Jul/17
I agree with @RichardSpain!
I disagree with @Rampage's guess but I respect freedom of speech, everyone is entitled to his own opinion.
I do think Harrison was a solid 1.87 at his peak... in sneakers with high platform. 1.84 barefoot.
Next to 1.87 Kevin Kline, Mr. Ford doesn't look remotely like Rampage suggests:
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/17
186.8cm out of bed
said on 24/Jul/17
He was between 183 cm 184 cm max. I think he was a strong 184 cm younger and 183 cm during long time. Strong or a solid 185 cm is much to him if you watch him next to other actors range 188 like Kevin kline for example ...
Here next to actor Raul Julia 188 cm too
And Harrison next to Liam Neeson ( 192 cm)
berta said on 23/Jul/17
185 is a pretty tall height if you are a true 185 cm guy in the late afternon. ford to me was at beast 184 in the evening at peak. but i think he was closer to 183,7 peak
berta said on 20/Jul/17
Andrew. ford was listed here at 183 when they made the lastindiana jones movie and when it came out he was changed to 182 cm. DOnt ask me how i now that :P i have been on this site for to long :D I perosnally think he was 181-181,5 cm 2008.
even said on 17/Jul/17
peak : 184 cm right now : 180 cm
Richardspain said on 15/Jul/17
Yes Andrew, Harrison's height sometimes is very enigmatic. But usually he looks 183cm (6 foot) maybe in his first movies like Indiana Jones or Star Wars he looks in screen 184/185 but not more. As I said in this website Directors and Producers make good casting that ours stars look taller than other people in screen and sometimes they use tricks and play with angle camera to get that one actor seems tall.
Andrew said on 13/Jul/17
Editor Rob, I find his peak height hard to be certain of. Yet I think most of the arguments guessing 184 or 185 cm are the best bet. Do you have a guess for what he stood at during 2007/8, when Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was made? I find it hard to tell there. To me, he looks 181 cm for the most part, but at times looks 180 and 182.
said on 10/Jul/17
I think he was closer 183 than 184 cm. Maybe he was 6'0.25" in peak,
Here with Spielberg 172 cm and Eastwood (192cm in peak) 23 years ago when harrison was around 52 years old.
And Eastwood was sixty years, maybe wasn't 192cm in his 60 years old. Maybe was 188 /189 in his 60.
Slim 181 cm said on 10/Jul/17
Peak 6'0.5, now 5'11
Harrison was never less than a strong 6 foot in his younger days.
James said on 10/Jul/17
He should be downgraded to 1.84. "A bit over 6 ft" is 6' 0.5" at most.
Spencer said on 9/Jul/17
185 peak 181 now
Ted said on 6/Jul/17
Never looked anything over 6' 0.5''
RichardSpain said on 5/Jul/17
Maybe journalist or the intervieweer gives him 180 or 5'11 and he did'nt ask to Harrison before.
Many people have shame to ask private things include the height.
Anyway Harrison Nowadays is older, and is very possible maybe a solid 180. I give him 181 now and 184 when he was young. Is my last guess.
berta said on 3/Jul/17
i dont think he himself have claiemd only 180 in that article. The intervieweer probably guessed him at 180. But you never know :P
said on 30/Jun/17
5ft 11 in this article from 2014
RichardSpain said on 27/Jun/17
@Hans Meiser. Yes! he seems 185cm next to Mark Hamill or Carrie Fisher but don`t Forget Mark is a short man and Carrie was a little woman. Anyway Harrison Ford was in his peak when Star Wars was filmed and maybe his boots in the movie give him 2 -3 cm extra. So we can conclude that Harrison in star wars was:
With his boots 185-186 cm but not much more.
Hans Meiser said on 24/Jun/17
He looked very tall in Star Wars next to 5'7 Mark Hamill and 5'1 Carrie Fisher.
RichardSpain said on 13/Jun/17
guys ; I understand Harrison Ford's height is very enigmatic but in Indiana Jones and the last Crusade, Harrison was 46 years old when the movie was filmed so he was in his peak sure in that movie because 46 years old is a young person!!
So in my opinion between 183 -184cm is the Harrison Ford's height in last Crusade. Barefoot. And Connery maybe 186- 187cm barefoot because Connery was 57 years old in last Crusade. Also Connery never was a solid 190cm, his peak was 188/189 cm barefoot when he was young it is true!.
Regards to everyone! fantastic website!
berta said on 10/Jun/17
if connery was still 188 in inadanna jones then ford was barely 184 if connery was neasrer 187 at the time then ford was 183. I can believe connery maybe have been 187,5 at the time and ford 183,4 ore something from a peak of 183,8 ( if he had injured his back and lost a little)
Judd said on 8/Jun/17
James actually I think in 1988-1989 (period when the last crusade was filmed) HF was in the 6'0/183cms zone...I think he was 6' because even if Connery was 6'1.5/1.75/187cm (and I think he had lost a small fraction at 59 from a genuine 6'2/188cm peak) there were 4cms among the Scottish actor and Ford...
It is since I started to make comments on this site that I support the thesis that Ford was never taller than 6'0.5/184cms...a 6'0.5 peak height and 5'11 now is the best combination in my opinion!

@Sam 59 years old Sean Connery was definetely shorter than 6' 1.5" (1.87) Kevin Kline:
(pause at 3:06).
Even if Kevin Kline is 6' 2" (1.88), that would put 59 years old Sean Connery as 1.87 at most.
James said on 7/Jun/17
@Sam It is alsmost sure for Connery to have lost 1 cm at that age (59). Most men do start to lost height in their late 50s, around 57 or 58. For sure, there are more chances that Connery had lost height than Harrison. Anyhow, even if Connery was still 6' 2" (unlikely) Harrison looks no more than 6 ft in the pic. Harrison Ford peak height was 6' 0.5" (1.84).
Sam said on 7/Jun/17
It's possible that Sean could've still straightened up to a strong 6'2" in the Last Crusade, after all he was only about 59 at the time.

An old 6 ft 1.5 (1.87) Sean Connery makes Harrison Ford looks 6 ft at most.
Harrison Ford peak height: 6' 0.5" (1.84).

berta said on 6/Jun/17
i think he woke up at 6 foot 1 and 2 mm more and was down to 183,8 in thlate afternon. By the wat just read he will reprise his role as indiana jones in 2020 :D he will be almost 80 years old and still do action roles :P this guy is one guy i have respect for. And worked as a carpenter when he was young

yeah canson with tommy lee jones he lokked about the same height ore 0,5 cm shorter. Tommy was maybe 183,9 cm tall that makes ford about 183,4 in the fugitive. The questio is had he lost already almost 2 cm as this listing say at age 50. I dont think so let say he had very bad genes and lost already 0,7 cm at age 50 then he was at best 184 cm peak. I dont unerstand how actors can loose that mutch heoght in early age when non in my family have started lose height before 65 years old and they have worked hard with their bodys, not just sitting and be filmed couple hours a day.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/17
Anything less than 6ft0½ peak is a joke.
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
Never been able to pin his height down. He was billed as 6'1" in the fugitive and looked a strong 6'0" with TLJ. He was at least 183/184 not his 5'11.5 maybe he is now tho
RichardSpain said on 1/Jun/17
@Berta I think so. Harrison young was between 183-184 cm in peak maybe 183'5 cm or 184 cm. But for a long time he was a solid 183 cm I think since age 50 years old to 65 years old he was 183 cm. Then since 60 years old he lost a bit height.
berta said on 31/May/17
i can believe 183 cm peak but i think closer to 184 is closer
Charlie said on 30/May/17
He was about 5'10 when he did Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The Nazi Villain was a good 4 inches taller than him when they were seen side by side at the end hen they are about to find the cup of the holy grail (Cup of Life) The actor who played the Nazi was listed as 6'2 and towered over Harrison Ford.Today Harrison Ford is about 5'8 maybe even a bit shorter.

Rob, how likely is the full 6ft1 for a young 60's-70's Ford?
Editor Rob: still arguable, but so is 6ft 1/2 inch!

@ RichardSpain. You're welcome. Enjoy! 😀

The link below will lead you to a website with a table, which states someone of 5ft 11in should weigh between 136 pounds and 172 pounds.
It says the BMI of someone who is 1.83m tall and 63kg is 18.8 (normal BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9.
I think Harrison Ford definitely fell into the 'normal' bracket in 1982, when the article was published in a magazine, even if it was at the lowest end of the norm.
RichardSpain said on 27/May/17
@Scarlett Rose I know that it is not your opinion and it is only a publication of the year 1982.
When I said : " I agree with you" is about that article year 1982.
Only for me is strange in the article the harrison ford's weight in 1982 because he is tall, 6 feet is a tall person so only 63 kg or 139 pounds is a low weight for him, but maybe is true all is possible of course! , that is all and thanks for sharing us the article
Scarlett Rose said on 26/May/17
@ RichardSpain. I ask you to remember that it is a transcript from a magazine, published in 1982, not my opinion. I am not asking you to agree or disagree. I have double checked it and it's not a typographical error on my part, I can assure you. It would mean he was just over 9st.12lbs. Mind you, Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) was given as 61kg and he was 5ft.8 inches tall and Mark Hamill was given as 67kg (which is just over 10st.7lbs) and he was 5ft.7 inches tall at the time (1982). Mark Hamill had been working out as the role of Luke Skywalker was more physically demanding in "The Empire Strikes Back" and Harrison Ford looked tall and lean in "Star Wars". Just saying.
@ Rampage (-_-_-) Clover. 183cm is just over six feet tall. He's Harrison Ford, not Chewbacca! LOL
@ Hijopotamus. Whether you think it's a joke or not, that's what it said. It was 1982 and people usually gain weight as they get on a bit, except the dead, they lose it all. LOL 😉
Hijopotamus said on 26/May/17
Scarlett, 139 lbs is a joke

Very interesting @scarlett Rose but I don't believe that Harrison's weight was 63 kg, this is little for him!! About everything else I agree with you I've read similar things about him.

I have dug out my old Star Wars scrapbooks. In one, there are the profiles of six of the major stars of the Star Wars saga at the time they were published in a British magazine (1982).

now that we have wenthworth miller and dominic purcell down on 184 , i think its pretty safe to say that ford wasnt taller than any of them. they look taller than what he did. atleast 1/4 downgrade

184 peak. 180 now.
berta said on 21/May/17
HI James. Its a hard photo. The angle is probably not the best and the hats makes it even harder. But looking at the eye level and also where theirt shoulders are. And basically just looking at their body structure i would say in that photo i would have thought COnnery 188 and ford barely 184. It could be about 4,4 cm beetween them. You see that connery eyes are mutch higher up for example. But i dont know Rob is the professional here :P haha But that basically what i would have thought by looking at that photo 188 ish vs 183,6. I think we have enought evidence everywhere to see ford was a 184 guy at peak. I think more chanse of ford being little under 184 than over it.

He looked over an inch and half maybe two shorter than an old Connery in Indiana Jones the heights described by articles is quite specific I'd give him 6'.25 maybe 6'.5
today he looks 5'10.75ish after plane accidents but in 2010's he looked 5'11+

How did Luke Skywalker manage to find a stormtrooper's uniform to fit him in Star Wars, when he was shorter than the average stormtrooper (who were said to be at least 5 feet, 11 inches tall - and I'm talking about the character, not the extras whi played stormtroopers)? 😕
Edge said on 17/May/17
I don't think he was ever taller than 6 feet he just never looked it. 5'11 today and 6 feet when he was young. And he never looked anymore than 4 inches taller than Mark Hamill who I think was 5'8.

Hi berta! I would LOVE to know your opinion. What do you think about this pic?

Harrison looked 6 ft flat next to 6' 1" Rutger Hauer in this Blade Runner pic.
I think Harrison Ford was 1.84 at most at his peak.
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 16/May/17
I really do think Harrison Ford looked at least very close to a full 6ft. 1 in. in Star Wars and the Indiana Jones films. He was 6 ft. 0.5 at least, probably just a hair under 6 ft. 1 i. first thing in the morning.
Scarlett Rose said on 15/May/17
Officially Harrison was 6 feet, 1 inch tall at the peak of his career in the early 1980s.
berta said on 15/May/17
when will we get the 184 cm lisitng rob :P i have noticed that you listen sometimes to my suggestions i rally think its time to give him 184. I mean if he also was described as " littel over 6 foot" then ther is a possibilty that he wasnt even 6 foot half inch. but overall i think that is maybe the best listing to give him.henry cavill was not shorter than ford a peak. And think of chris pine too and cena. all those guys would edged out ford at peak. I belive you will change the listing sometimes in the future and today is a good day to do it :P haha

According this website Harrison was (6ft 0.53 in) or 184.2cm in peak. You can vote too.

What is peak height?
RichardSpain said on 4/May/17
Are you sure James??? we don't know if Harrison wears shoes in that pic it is not clear! I think he was barefoot. Because if he was with footwear in the mugshot Harrison is more smaller than 183/184 cm.
berta said on 4/May/17
yeah 183 is likely to low but 183,7 could be spot on i think 183,7-184,3 is 90 procent chanse he was in that range

@Johnson Don't forget he was likely in shoes in that pic.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/May/17
183cm is too low peak.

In the mugshot of the Fugitive he appears no more than 183. Look at his eyes
It meets Puppet's law
Richardspain said on 2/May/17
@James Brad Pitt wears elevator boots. And I don't understand why he wears heels because he is tall (180 cm) so for this reason he is similar than Harrison in many pictures you share here.
Also I agree with you that Harrison was 184cm in peak barefoot no more. Maybe out of the bed 184cm is reasonable and he was a solid 183cm at all times. He always looked me 183cm but maybe 186 cm with footwear. And nowadays he look 180cm barefoot.He is old.
RisingForce said on 1/May/17
I'm fine with 184 cm as well, but I wouldn't go any higher personally. I think he could have lost near 2".
said on 1/May/17
@Richardspain It depends on the footwear. He could reach 1.87 in sneakers.
@Mark(5'9.25 In my opinion, Keanu always looked slightly taller than Ford. I remember Keanu in Dracula and he looked 1.85/1.86. Harrison Ford in Blade Runner looked no more than 1.84.
We don't know if he did lost height or how much did he lost after the Temple Doom. Nobody measured him.
54 years old Harrison looks no more than 1.82 next to 1.80 Pitt:
Also, look at 53 years old Harrison with 1.87 Kevin Kline:
Kline makes Ford look no more than 1.81/1.82. In my view, this pic should make us skeptic about the assumption that Ford was 1.85 at his peak.
I think 1.84 (6 ft 0.5 in) at his peak is more reliable. Also, that is what most people think with almost 100 votes.
Richardspain said on 1/May/17
I agree with you @James about Harrison
His peak between 183-184cm.No more but no less
185cm in peak with footwear is posible and nowadays he looks 180 and maybe 182cm with footwear. Well this my opinion
davey said on 30/Apr/17
Mhhh... he looks short in ep VII. I think he's 179/180 cm at 74. In his prime, an easy 6'1
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Apr/17
I would say similar Ford peak was similar to Keanu Reeves. Both 6'0.75".

I worked at his house in '91. He hung around (he used to be a carpenter). I'm 5'9", my guess for him at that time would be about 6 foot. In my work boots he was a little taller than me.
Cool story. One of the few on this site that I genuinely believe occurred.

In this pic, a 53 years old Ford looks 1.82 next to 1.87 Kevin Kline. And I am not sure he had lost height being only 53, maybe he had lost 1 cm at most. Maybe he had a bad posture with Kline... or maybe he never was as tall as a weak 1.85. I think the whole "he lost height in the temple doom" is an excuse to avoid the refutation of the weak 1.85 guess. Nobody measured him after the Temple doom so we don't know if he lost height or how much did he lost.
In my opinion, Mr. Ford was 6' 0.5" (1.84) at his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/17
I think 184/185cm range peak is more believable than 183/184cm. A 6ft0½ listing isn't unreasonable but it's the lowest I'd argue. He was probably identical in his prome to Cavill if not a fraction taller. He did look like 6ft+ guy in the 70's
sausage said on 27/Apr/17
Easily 6'1 in the 70s only have to see him with actors like Gene Hackman, Carl Weathers, 3 inches taller than Robert Shaw still looked that height in Raiders, but I think the injury he had to his back during the filming of Temple of Doom had a significant impact going forward on his height.
Richardspain said on 27/Apr/17
He was a strong 183'5cm( around 6 ft) in peak no less.
The famouse 185cm I think with footwear.
Because Harrison is a bit shorter than many actors range 185-188cm. Nowadays he is a solid 180cm/181 cm no less.
James B said on 26/Apr/17
the tallest he's looked to me was as Han Solo in the old Star Wars film.
berta said on 26/Apr/17
i still just think like this john cena would have 1cm on ford at peak
RisingForce said on 22/Apr/17
I'd go with 183.5 for Ford looking at him with 5'11" Billy Dee Williams as well as Snipes and Gibson in 1993 as the poster below mentioned and he couldn't have lost that much by the Devil'S Own with 179-180 Brad Pitt. My cousin grew up with the Baldwin's(he's Stephen's age). Alec was a 5'11" flat guy, more 180-181. He looked taller than he was on screen, but that's made me suspicious of footwear.
said on 16/Apr/17
Harrison with standing loosely Hayden Christensen who is 183cm looks at 181-182cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/17
Like I said, they shared no scenes in Working Girl but compared to the likes of Joan Collins and Melanie Griffith it's clear that Harrison has more height over them than Alec does
mister_lennon said on 15/Apr/17
I think than baldwin was 181-182 peak and harrison 183-184 peak.
berta said on 13/Apr/17
i am one of the few who think baldwin was 182/183 peak not 180 as many seems to believe and ford barely 184. so i guess if ford had low shoes on and baldwin had boots on he thought he was 1 cm taller than ford.
said on 12/Apr/17
But Rob, do you he was taller than Baldwin at peak?
Editor Rob: I do think Harrison was taller, especially in 70's than a 1980's Baldwin.
said on 12/Apr/17
I doubt he was 6"1' peak because he don't look 4 inches taller than Wesley Snipes in old pictures(Wesley is listed 5"9' )= Click Here Click Here
berta said on 12/Apr/17
rampage have you read the quot in the book? COuld you tell us the exact words he discribes him in? i still believe ford was a almost 184 guy he was not short. shortest possible for him was 183 peak but was probbably more in the 183,8 range. But on thin is for shore ryan reynold is listed 188 and if he really is that height then ford could have been as short as 182,5 peak. but he wasnt. the 3 main height is would like to see different listing on this site is ford 184 cm ryan reynolds 189 cm and bill murray strong 186 guy with a pretty decent chanse of have even been close to 187 on good days.
said on 9/Apr/17
Rob, do you believe Baldwin's story?
Editor Rob: about Ford being short and scrawny...maybe some people expect a taller man and discover the person is shorter, so exaggerate it.
Other times it's meant as a bit of a dig, a bit like Freddie Prinze calling Kiefer 5ft 4...
Kansas Jack Blake said on 8/Apr/17
Alec Baldwin, in his book NEVERTHELESS described Harrison Ford as a scrawny 5 ft 4 inch person. I guess Baldwin still thought he was on SNL.
Canson said on 8/Apr/17
He was described in the Fugitive as 6'1" when they had the APB out on him. Best guess is he was 6'0" at worst and a strong 6' who woke up at 6'1" or a hair over at best
RisingForce said on 7/Apr/17
I know, but Stallone was probably not taller than 174 cm barefoot by the time that film was made. It means Ford may have only been 5 cm taller than Stallone barefoot by that time.
said on 7/Apr/17
@RisingForce, Stallone wears elevator shoes in that picture sure. Remember, Harrison is 180cm or 5'11 today, Stallone maybe 175cm and with his elevator shoes 179 /180cm.
If you looking for in Google ," stallone and Arnold" you can see Arnold (183cm today) not taller than Stallone.
said on 6/Apr/17
LOL, Harrison Ford was at least an inch taller than Baldwin ever was. With that said, a bit over 6 feet probably meant 6'0.25", which I can buy. It explains why he's been looking below 5'11" by the Expendables 3. Stallone in the righr footwear was even looking neae his height! Click Here

Funny how Alec Baldwin describes him as "short and scrawny" in his new book.
Bobby said on 3/Apr/17
I'd say he was at least a solid or reasonable 6'1 when he was a young man, he looked close in height to Sean Connery who was 6'2. I feel today, he might be close to 6ft at 5'11.5 or so.
RichardSpain said on 3/Apr/17
Harrison great actor! my country loves him.He has here many fans.
I think his height today is around 182cm but..180cm is possible too. He lost height from 63 or 64 years old. Young Harrison maybe 184 cm.
Rory said on 29/Mar/17
I'm not sure why people are always so keen to downgrade Ford. A 1970s Ford did look a pretty tall guy do I don't see why there's always this clamour to downgrade him as if 6'0.75 is ridiculous. To me it looks pretty close for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Mar/17
I think 184/185cm is dead on for a 70's Ford
Willes188 said on 28/Mar/17
6'0.75 is a little too high, he was more of a solid 184cm guy than a 185cm guy
6'0.5 is spot on for peak Ford
Canson said on 25/Mar/17
@Agree with Rampage never looked strong 6'1 but did look around a full 6'0" peak. Very near it. He's lost height now tho you can almost tell
mister_lennon said on 25/Mar/17
Berta, agree. I think that peak murray had 1 inch over peak ford.
183-184 peak ford
186-187 peak murray.
said on 24/Mar/17
rob dont you think bill murray really would have almost 1 inch on harrison ford at their peaks? ford 183,9, murray 186,2
Editor Rob: the 6ft 0.5 mark for Ford isn't an impossibility, it's always a figure I think a lot of people would guess for him...
James B said on 22/Mar/17
I'd say as Han Solo he looked 6'1
Adijos said on 19/Mar/17
Harrison Ford is 6'1.25" tall is peak, and actual is 5'11.25" height.
berta said on 17/Mar/17
S.J.H i think driver could be 188,5 guy and michael shannon maybe 190,5 guy. ford these days could fall down to 179 with a 183,8 peak in the late afternon
HonestSlovene said on 14/Mar/17
Weak 184 cm peak and weak 180 cm today. Never was near 6'1" but he easily cleared the 6'0" mark in his early days though and was most likely between those 2 (6'0" and 6'1").
berta said on 9/Mar/17
i wonder howe mutch people think htere would be beetween ryan reynolds and harrison ford at peak?i think it was 2 inches.have ford ever looked a real 185 guy? this means he was 187 in the morning :O i can belive he was maybe 185,5 in the morning and just under 184 in the evening but not more
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
They described him as 6'1" in the hospital scene of the Fugitive. Maybe not at his lowest but I easily buy a strong at worst a good 6'0" if not 6'0.5 prime and there's a chance in his prime of 6'1"
said on 8/Mar/17
Harrison ford is 4" shorter than adam driver. Uncle ford is 5'9.75 and adam driver 6'1.75
edge out ford by 4" smoothly
ford without hair is 4" shorter
michael shannon is not 6'3.5 , he had 0.4-0.5 more footwear than driver only look max 1.25 taller. Do not fool by shannon high volume of hair and without shoe advantage he is only 2cm taller than driver
this boy is real legit 6'4 tops over shannon by 1.5" , shannon is only 6'2.5 and adam driver 6'1.75 so harrison ford is only 5'9.75
Bambi said on 27/Feb/17
6 ft-1/2 inch (1.84 m) morning at his peak, 6 feet flat mid-day(1.83m)in the 1970's. The top of 5 ft 7 inch Mark Hamill's head, was almost eye level with Ford in the '77 Star Wars film. 5 ft 11 tops for Ford nowdays, having lost the usual 1-to 1-1/2 inches, by his 70's...yet remarkably maintains his same lean, strong 175 pound frame of his early days.
Rory said on 25/Feb/17
No looks a 2cm difference between them there, but Ford had probably lost half an inch by then, so peak Ford 184-5 cms and Costner 185-6cms is fine.
berta said on 24/Feb/17
yeah to me costner was 0,75 inch taller than harrison ford peak
said on 22/Feb/17Click Here
Ford looks under 6 ft next to 6' 1" Kevin Costner. I think he was in his late 50s in this pic so old enough to have lost 1 cm.
183.5 at his peak
berta said on 21/Feb/17
i visit harrison ford site now and then just to see if he will get that 184 listing i been waiting for :P 6 foot half inch is good listing. he was probably 2 mm under that but thats fine
said on 20/Feb/17
My guess is he was (or almost was) 6'1" peak. This image shows him next to Dave Prowse and Peter Mayhew - not a great angle but if Prowse was really 6'5" mid 1970's (and I think he was) Ford was around 6'1"
Ramualdo said on 14/Feb/17
Peak was 182, now he's 177
mister_lennon said on 9/Feb/17
183-184 at peak.
James said on 8/Feb/17
@berta That's a very good guess. I also agree he was not a full 1.84, but very comfortably in the 1.83 range, a very solid six footer.
berta said on 7/Feb/17
in the last indiana jones movie he was in he was not over 181 beside the cast. that mean he had lost 4 cm at age 65. not a chanse. i can belvive little over 2 cm. and that is mutch for that age. 183,8 peak
Fog5'11 said on 30/Jan/17
A solid six footer, but more 6ft 0.25 -6ft 0.5 i think, for peak height.
berta said on 30/Jan/17
yeah beside kevin kline he loosk almost 2 inches shorter. although i think kevin could have been very close to 188 at his peak but if he really was 188 that would still make ford at best 184 in those photos. i think he could have lost littel already at that time and was down to 183

These pics are from March 1, 1996. Harrison Ford, being 53 years old, looks 1.82 at most next to 1.87 Kevin Kline.
1.80 at most now

Thank you 123 - I like you too! It's ridiculous just how the young overestimate heights!
Mais, pardon me indeed, I was fully grown! Just short myself, and, my oh my, that seems to reflect on how tall I think people are! 🙊
Scott said on 28/Dec/16
He definitely was six foot one. Just over 5'10 inches now.
123 said on 28/Dec/16
hahahaha I like you sandy yh your right six-foot is tall infact even today I would say it is still. Average height for a man 20-44 years old is most likely 5'9 1/2"-5'10" tops, probably a hair under 5'10". And yeah when i was growing up I too thought he was taller i mean his proportions just screamed tall like 6'2" or whatever i thought, but what I didn't no was that 6'0" WAS 6'2" my perception was just warped (like most peoples)
berta said on 28/Dec/16
183,8 peak and now 179
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Dec/16
I thought Harrison to be at least 6ft2-3 at the onset of his career!
When, as a young adult, I started finding my feet, friends and independence, I was surprised how relatively small 6ft is, but that was rubbish because as soon as I drew a huge 6ft mark on my wall (rented accommodation - ha-ha!) I could see just how many 6 footers were not 6ft at all when they would pile in from a night out to watch 'The Young Ones' etc! Many were 5ft9-10, and they thought that, because I was 5ft2.5 - 3 (those were the days!), I wouldn't suss them out, but I did, and then some!
I found it all extremely entertaining! It's like girls bulls****ing about weight matters! I did have a particularly honest girlfriend called Sue, who was my height and, though considerably heavier, she still looked great with her curvaceous proportions and naturally blonde hair! It was down to her honesty that I could detect how many other girls were lying! We were good confidantes in one another and I used to phone into her college with an authentic-sounding excuse when she needed a day off! (I was 4 years her senior and worked as a secretary!)
Well, Mr Harrison Ford is therefore a sizeable male height as he was a REAL 6 footer who would have passed my secret little test with flying colours!
Shredder said on 24/Dec/16
No way is he 5'10 flat and no way did he lose 3 full inches. 6'0.5 peak , 5'11 now is more realistic.
Danimal said on 23/Dec/16
He has lost serious height over the years.
said on 20/Dec/16Click Here
Looks 182./1.83 still at his peak with Sean Connery. Unless he had lost some height because of his back injury during the filming of Indiana Jones 2, but we cannot be sure that he did lost height because of that. Maybe in Star Wars he looked over 6 ft because he was skinny and surrounded by very short actors. In Blade Runner also looked around 6 ft.
It's only my opinion.
Anonymous_1 said on 11/Dec/16
185 peak, 178 today
berta said on 7/Dec/16
he was skinny back then close to 184 is my guess could fall under it by 3-4 mm in the evening
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/16
He genuinely looked 6ft1 in the 70's
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/16
I'd still lean toward 184/185cm over 183/184cm for Ford...
berta said on 24/Nov/16
the general belief sems to be that he was barely 184 tall. i think that is ecxactly right
King of the hill 91 said on 7/Nov/16
Shrugster said on 2/Nov/16
I think he was probably not much over 6 feet in his prime; I would guess about 184cm out of bed as a youngster. Still a tall fellow, but not exceptionally so. I think this site exaggerates the loss in height of a lot of younger stars; not everyone loses a fixed amount of height as they age. Usually you only lose any significant amount of height as you get very old and start to be unable to stand-upright... Maybe I'm wrong, just the way it seems to me.
Jack said on 29/Oct/16
Sometimes looks 6'1" , sometimes looks 5'10.5". On an average day now is is about 5'10" ish

Editor Rob: I can't remember, but I think you have been closer to your views with guesses you have given the last week, I appreciate that.
josh jeffords said on 9/Oct/16
Tall guy great actor played some great roles.
Cant say I've ever seen him look under 6 ft.
Often stands near tall guys never looked short.
He has had a change in posture over the years but height is maximum.
Brion James was bigger than him also Rutger Hauer looked bigger..
said on 7/Oct/16
the other day people thought he was just over 6 feet in guesses and now he is up to 6 feet half inch:O. Rob is someone guessing people like 2 inches taller than they are just to makke they average guess vote higher? :P
Editor Rob: the voting option is only like 8 days old, it's early days. I think you need a good amount of votes to negate the few high/low guesses.
That's why I say just enter your own estimate, forget anybody else's.

I think mid-late 80's, probably around the time of IJ: Temple of Doom/Witness was when he began to lose some height.

What is your problem here ? We get shorter as we get older. I used to be 6' 5".
The important thing to note is that we are all the same height when we are horizontal,
Judd said on 4/Sep/16
Canon i've never watched the fugitive with original sound-language but only dubbed in Hebrew language.
I remember that in all movie nobody described Ford as a 6'1 guy, instead I remember a paper with his description (entitled "wanted") where it was written he was 6'0.
Everybody thought he was 6'1 when he played Richard Kimble because there's a mugshot where he does look a weak 6'1...the matter is that with all chances when that pic was took HF wore shoes on so had an advantage of at least 1,5-2 cms and that means he might have been a strong 6' at times...
I always thought (and I still think) HF was an honest 6'0.5" guy when he was 20s-30s and in the beginning of his 40s...when he played the raiders of the lost ark I think he was still 184 cms and 39.
Then he drop to 6'/183 at the end of 80s and for the most of 90s and then he lost a good inche from 1997 until now, becoming the 5'11" guy that we can see now
Canson said on 2/Sep/16
I remember in the Fugitive that the police officer said "6'1 185 brown hair". "Every time I look in the kiddo pal". I agree with James. He was probably at worst 184cm in his prime because he could give a 6'1 appearance at times
said on 30/Aug/16
Peak 184 cm. But I think today he is 180 cm.
Looks 2 cm taller than Craig with relaxed posture, while Craig is forcing his posture.
berta said on 29/Aug/16
184 ore 2 mm under at peak and 179 now. he almost looks short today. like he was down to 178
Jim Hopper said on 25/Aug/16
And today hes taller than arnie...Go figure.
mister_lennon said on 18/Aug/16
In the fugitive, Both Ford and Tommy Lee Jones looked about the same height. maybe Jones slightly taller, but almost the same height. both solid 6 footer at that time.
said on 17/Aug/16
I'm trying to remember if he edged out TLJ in The Fugitive...He definitely looked a bit taller than Jerome Krabbe so couldn't have been under 6ft. TLJ was 46 then so most likely still at his peak.
Rob, do you think Ford had lost a fraction by the early 90's?
Editor Rob: yes I believe by 90's he already had damaged his body and lost a fraction.
James said on 15/Aug/16
In terms of height, Harrison Ford reminds me of Zinedine Zidane. Both listed as 185 cm, but being 184 cm in my opinion.

Looks 182-183 cm range in these pics.

@berta No less than 184 cm in my opinion.

@Rampage I respect your opinion, but I highly doubt Ford was as tall as 185 cm weak. He sometimes looked 6 ft flat in Blade Runner. And certainly he never looked taller than 184 cm guys like Gareth Bale. I think he was a legit 184 cm man, but no more.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jul/16
Finally he's starting to look his age with a white beard! Still looks bloody good for 73 though, I'm sure most guys wished they looked as good at 73!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/16
184cm minimum peak and a weak 185cm is most likely spot on. You really need to go back to Star Wars and earlier to get a good look at his height. He really did look 6ft1 or thereabouts.
berta said on 1/Jul/16
i rally Think he was about Tom hanks height at peak. 183,4-184,3
hijopotamus said on 27/Jun/16
Taller than Brad Lift as clearly seen in that movie
Rob, something is wrong here, right?
said on 12/Jun/16
First with Vic Armstrong(listed 6ft some places) in an Indiana Jones film in the 80s, the latter is with Armstrong in the 2010s. We can definitely confirm the theory that he has shrinked more than most people around his age. I'd say 5' 10-11 today, probably a weak 5'11"
said on 8/Jun/16
Rob do you really Think he was a 185 man more than a 184 man? I Think like this there is no way 0 % chanse he was 186 but i can se like 25 % chane that he was 183,5 nightime. And 184 is what he Always looked. In some shots in First star wars Movie he could look 185 but he was skinny.
Editor Rob: either could be argued.

@Rampage what are you talking about? 6 ft 1 inches is equivalent to 185,4 cm. There is no evidence that Ford was so tall...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/16
Looked a solid 6ft1 in The Conversation. No more than 1in below Hackman.
Judd said on 26/May/16
James is precisley what i always thought: in my opinion Ford was at peak a decent 6'0.5" guy like Bradley Cooper, Henry Cavill and Channing Tatum, and today at 74 is 5'11"...in my opinion he lost 1,5" which is a big chunk. In 1989, when the last crusade was filmed, he was 6'-6'0.25" I believe.
berta said on 25/May/16
I Think the chanses that he was 183 is as big as 185. 6 foot and 1/4 inches tall peak. I love Indiana jones Movies and wanted him to be taller than he was when i was younger. But i have never though he looked 185. Just a Little taller than Bruce willis. Today he can sometimes look weak 179.
20 % 185
25% strong 183

@Judd What world do you live in? Harrison Ford 186 cm??????? That's impossible.
Compare 47-year-old Harrison Ford with 59-year-old Sean Connery (probably 187 cm):
In this pic he looks 182-183 cm.
Ford never was taller than 184 cm. Have you seen him in Blade Runner? Even when he was younger, he never looked over 184 cm.

Rampage- he looks better than clint Eastwood put it that way
said on 24/May/16
Rob, at what stage do you think Ford began to look shorter than 6ft?
Editor Rob: maybe 15 years ago he could at times look a weak 6ft
Judd said on 24/May/16
Max: 6'1.25"/186 cms
Min: 6'0.5"/184 cms
Max: 5'11.5"/182 cms
Min: 5'11"/180 cms
(Max-Min is the daily shrinkage)

Other than those injuries which somewhat come with the job, he's in good shape for 74. Could pass for early 60's

This guy was 6ft max in his prime, Just look at his pictures with Mel gibson and Wesley snipes,
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/16
@Snoke: Possibly still at least 6ft. Some guys in their 70s lose barely anything…

Peak 184 now 180 maybe 179

A bit over 6ft translates to 6ft 1/2

185 cm for Ford is literally impossible.
I generally agree with all the listings on this page. But this is an exception. IMO: 6 ft 0.5 in (184 cm) PEAK , 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) TODAY.
In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Ford looks 6 ft next to 6 ft 2 or 6 ft 1.5 Sean Connery:
Most importantly, in Blade Runner he was at his peak and he looks 184 cm MAXIMUM. Even as Han Solo, Ford never looks over 184 cm.
Rob, are you completely sure Harrison Ford was taller than Gareth Bale at his peak?
Editor Rob: in the 80's there was a couple of mentions that he was a bit over 6ft, whether it came from him or was the journalists estimate is harder to tell...

If you google Steven Seagal Harrison ford images,6ft4 Seagal has about 5 inches on Ford,intact Seagal has to look down on Ford he is so much taller.Somebody needs a downgrade or upgrade,IMO Seagal always looked taller than 6ft4 more 6ft5 peak.

Hey Rob, what height do you think he'd be at today without all his injuries and what not?
Editor Rob: I think over 5ft 11 near 6ft
musket said on 28/Apr/16
He lost a lot of height and is at a weak 5'11
said on 27/Apr/16
Ford looks at least 1in taller than TLJ.
berta said on 25/Apr/16
looked at the fugitive yesterday. He and tommy lee jones looked about the same height but i thought tommy was the taller one. So he was about 183 in the fugitiveore a very very weak 184
truth said on 25/Apr/16
A little over 6ft0 peak and a little over 5ft11 today.
Aravind said on 13/Apr/16
Harrison Ford,a.k.a Indiana Jones is 5'11 due to 73 years of age.

Rampage i hope you don't sleep with him:) That green scarf cracks me up.
said on 29/Mar/16
Rob, would it be fair to say that Ford gave a shorter impression beside Melanie Griffith in Working Girl than Alec Baldwin?
I'm sure Harrison is/was taller than Alec. But I take James's point. He does not look over 6ft in it.
said on 26/Mar/16
rob do you think by the time of working girl he might have not been any taller than a solid 6ft? I think the injury sustained in the temple of doom made him lose a fraction.
Editor Rob: by then I'd say a fraction would have been likely.
James B said on 26/Mar/16
He didn't look that tall in working girl too me.

berta said on 24/Mar/16
6 foot and 1/4 inch thats his peak height. At best 1/2
richie said on 23/Mar/16
Ford's peak height was 6'1.5".Check out Force 10 From Navarone, he towered Robert Shaw by at least 3 inches and edged Carl Weathers who was 6'1", peak height was close to 6'2"
Anonymous1 said on 21/Mar/16
He was shorter than Connery in "Last Crusade", and as far as Connery goes, I go by whatever site has that article by or about the Bond tailors, who had him at 6'1.5. I'm 6'1 out of bed, and a bit over 6 at night. So, if we really want to get nitty gritty, we'd have to know at what time of day Ford's height was based on. I don't, at all, think 6 even, during his heyday...post morning, is impossible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/16
Me neither. It's just some on here are adamant that the guy was another victim of the 2in rule in Hollywood. 6ft1 is hardly a joke for him. He probably was that for a portion of the day and then dipped a tad under it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/16
Working Girl is another memorable role
said on 18/Mar/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft flat for his peak?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't go that low for him.
Judd said on 9/Mar/16
Of course rob this is may be the situation where an actor has lost more than 1" at 74, however there're a lot of people here on this site who think Ford is more 5'10" than 5'11" today.
Personally I think 6'0.5" would be a safe mark, because I doubt at peak (until 40s) he was under that line...6'0.75" is maybe more optimistic...I think he was more like Bradley Cooper in height!
However I don't know who is the stuntman that said he and Ford were at the same height, but I know that for a long while Armstrong was his stuntman and Ford was in a couple of pictures a little over him, also if we don't know what kind of shoes they were and I have always known that Armstrong was listed at 6', not a little over that...
5ft 9.25 said on 9/Mar/16
He never measured 6ft .75 in his entire life! Not even 'out of bed'...
said on 6/Mar/16
Yeah this is not the first time I heard that...
However 3,5"/4cms are a good amount, larger than what we could expect on average.
Actually Rob if you watch also his first movies in my opinion he does look more a stronger 6' than a weak 6'1...
I believe that at the end of 80s/begin of 90s he was 6', compared to other actors...
Of course we will never be sure about his peak height but IMO a 6'0.75" had to be taller next to a 6'1" like Rutger Hauer in 1980...
Editor Rob: 184 is arguable (a stuntman said he and Ford were the same height, a 'little over 6ft'...I've always said though Ford is a prime candidate for injury related loss. Here is an old quote:
"I have no ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) in my left knee, I’ve had an ACL transplant in my right knee, and I’ve been in and out of various surgeries. In my last movie, I tore a hamstring. I have herniated discs to the point of having an operation. I’ve limped through most of my f**king movies. But it’s still a good way to make a living"
said on 4/Mar/16
Actually Rob I don't see a lot of injuries which could generate a bigger loss than the average...yes of course he has more than one injuries but his back seems to be fine...
Editor Rob: when filming Indy he did actually damage his back. Sometimes effects over years can accumulate.
Damage one disc and others around can be effected. He's an actor who did more physical stunt work than most.
I'm sure he busted his knee on The Fugitive.
We know he done in his ankle/leg on Force Awakens.
Then his last crash done some more damage to pelvis etc.
