Jason is a little stumpy idiot I don’t think he is an inch over 5’4”
said on 6/Mar/19
166 cm is definetely his height. He is smaller than ben stiller and barely same height than tory. And an inch smaller than the 1.7m 's mother in beverly hill.
He always look tiny not under the average. Just look his leg position on the photo beverly hill trailer. He is trying to gain half inch by standing on one leg whereas tori spelling 165cm with flat shoes is slouching to look at the same height...
What more do u need Rob?
I don't know if he's standing the same as Ben, but here is a full shot of Jason and Christine
in same footwear.
Knowing she's 5ft 4.5, I think 5ft 6 range is still ok, but 166cm I don't know about.
KH said on 17/Feb/19
No he did not gain an inch and a half from surgery that is fairy tale. Most likely he lost height from getting seriously injured. No more then this. I was watching a hallmark movie with him and Bradley Cooper the other day. Cooper looked like a giant next to him.
GabeFreemont said on 15/Apr/18
He's not 5'8". Rob is right on the money with this. I went to a book signing in Pasadena and stood right next to him. I'm 5'9" EXACTLY (measured with a stadiometer) and he was several inches shorter than me.
John Doe said on 9/Feb/18
He gained about an inch after his racing accident which broke his back. Had something fused into his spine which lengthend it. His recent claim of 5'8" is probably correct. Probably a weak 5'8" though.
said on 30/Jun/17
169 should be his peak height
Editor Rob: with fractured spine, it is very possible he did a little bit.
subdude said on 30/Jun/17
rob did he lose height from the 2003 accident? he looks the same height as tiffani thiessen...
Roger said on 16/Jun/17
A beautiful teen idol and capable actor, but unfortunately for him no more than 5ft5 barefoot to transition into lead acting. Case in point, he was completely dwarfed and looked like a child next to all other actors in "Tombstone" (1993) in spite of being already 23-24 years old at the time of the filming. He has very short arms and calves even with boots which are a dead give away that he is nowhere near the 170cm/5ft7 mark without shoes. The below pic with 5ft6 Ben Stiller could not make it more obvious regardless of footwear...
Ed Kline said on 18/Feb/17
Everyone has to remember that while G lied about his height, he wore boots a lot which inflated his height by about an extra half inch over normal footwear, thereby giving some truth to the lie. I don't remember what kind he wore.
Since he was about 5'7, he probably was was 5'8.5 in those boots, and if another guy ( like Jason P) was wearing normal trainers and was of a similar height, then he would appear shorter.My guess is Jason Priestly is in the 5'6.5 to 5'7 range.
Shredder said on 22/Dec/16
With Luke Perry this looks about right
meezemaker said on 4/Nov/16
If Carol Potter is 1.70m, I gues an inch less for priesley. 168cm/167 cm
But if I want to say what I really feel, I would say 166cm

i think he lost height from that accident

lifes not fair since 169ers look decent while 168ers are short
Clay said on 21/Sep/14
My 5'4'' mom said he wasn't much taller than her when she saw him in Vancouver. 5'6.5'' is a good guess.
John R said on 29/Aug/14
Most of you are correct about Jason being in the 5'7" range. However that is no longer true. Unlike most of us, he has actually gotten taller. I worked on the original 90210 and I am 5'8". When we would stand next to each other I would look downward to his eyes. After the show ended I didn't see him for about ten years. I worked with him again in 2008 and I noticed that I was looking up to him. I assumed he was wearing lifts but later on we had a scene where he was barefoot. I didn't have any shoes on either and I was looking at him eye to eye. I actually freaked out a little and thought I was shrinking, but I talked to a mutual friend and he explained what was going on. Jason had a serious racing crash several years ago and they had to fuse several vertabrae in his spine. This actually made him taller and gives him the appearance of being rather stiff, however he has learned to hide it rather well, but if you look closely you can tell.
Brad said on 14/Jul/14
He's 5' 6" and wears Priestleys which are boots. He lives in them. Perry owns him big and makes Luke look tall not to mention help with all the short actresses on 90210....I've met them all and they are.
Robby D said on 10/Jul/14
jtm. You are correct. At the time G was claiming to be 5'8" and on the assumption that he was that height I would have said Priestley was about 5'7" as there looked to be about an inch difference in the photo. If I remember correctly, when Rob mentioned Priestley was claiming to be 5'8", G said something like, "He might be 5'8" in his cowboy boots!" I am not sure whether G said he was wearing cowboy boots when he had his photo taken with him.
jtm said on 10/Jul/14
i don't remember the picture with G but i remember most people here thought priestley looked 5'6 with G and that was when the majority thoguht G was 5'8. G also thought Priestley was 5'6 and we all know that he was very generous with a lot of his estimates. maybe he had footwear and ground advantage.
Robby D said on 9/Jul/14
I agree with Brad. Priestley was shorter than G and once G's true height had been established then that would make Priestley more 5'6" than 5'6.5". Also I saw two recent photos of him taken alongside Luke Perry and Perry owned him by 3" to 4". Perry claims 5'10", he is listed as 5'9.5" on here and 5'9" flat on some other sites.
Lexi said on 22/Jun/14
I met him, I am 5'6, so he must be 5'7. Very cute.
the shredder said on 4/Jun/14
Brad , with Mamun he looks 5'7 , You put too much into G pics.
Brad said on 3/Jun/14
5-6. A 5' 6.5" G in similar footwear had him.Custom built up footwear the norm.
Dom said on 28/Feb/14
@ Brad, if you´re talking about Matt LeBlanc he is a legit 5´9. I think JP is about 5´7.
Brad said on 13/Jan/14
G at 5' 6.5" was taller than the JP. JP saying he is 5' 8" is Marky Mark laughter. Notorious custom boot guy like that Friends guy who lived in his the whole run.
Robby D said on 12/Sep/13
I remember when Glenn was posting on here, he said that Priestley was no more than 5'6". At the time, G was claiming 5'8" himself although it was proven later that he was no more than 5'7". However, he was still taller than Priestley in the photo he had taken with him. On that basis I would say that 5'6" to 5'6.5" was an accurate estimate.
Viper said on 26/Aug/13
Me, I'd fit him in the 5'7" to 5'8.5" range if he is tiny as many believe to be.
LOL, a guy that height would own him. 5'6 max
Ali_Jane said on 26/Aug/13
I have a friend who is about 5'4" tall. He just had his picture taken with Jason Priestly at FanExpo Toronto. He looks to be about 2 inches taller than him. I would say he is about 5'6" tall.
THE KAP said on 9/Aug/13
just met him today at Wizard World Chicago I am 5.65 and we were the exact same height as far as I could tell. nice guy
said on 18/Jun/13
it's impossible he can't be 5'0" [Click Here
] he's a little taller than tori spelling and taller than shannen who is 5'2 , 5'3
Tony Greene said on 16/May/13
If you're 5'6" like Lady Gaga then you'll always get the 5'0" accusation. Like when Rider Strong was always being assumed to be 5'3", He's 5'8" or David Faustino who got listed as 4'9" in a recent listing I read in a magazine but he's only 5'2". I don't know Jason Priestley all that well but if he's taller that 5'6" or not, at least he should't be listed as low as 5'0". Me, I'd fit him in the 5'7" to 5'8.5" range if he is tiny as many believe to be.
said on 5/Nov/12
No way is he 5'0"
Tori Spelling is listed at 5'6", and Shannen Doherty is listed at 5'3". In that picture you would figure that both Tori and Shannen are wearing heels. That would put Jason at 5'7" at least.
ts said on 5/Nov/12
I was wondering the same thing jj. There is no way he is only 5'0.
American Midget Watch said on 5/Nov/12
I just read the Yahoo! story that lists him ta a mere 5 feet nothing...If that's true than its entirely possible that he is a secret midget, Roloff-style. Wonder if anybody's ever seen his legs to check for bowing.

he looked easily taller than jenifer conelly... maybe he wore lifts... no way taller than 170cm for sure... good actor btw...
Phil said on 16/Sep/11
5 foot 9 is a joke. 5 foot 7 maximum.
Dominic said on 18/Jul/11
The more I see him on tv, the more I don't think he's as low as 5'6. I think he could be a flat 5'7. I also don't believe Ziering is 5'11 flat either, I believe he's more 5'11.5. Ziering always looks marginally taller than Brian Austin Green even after he shot up. Estimates of under 5'6 are comical, he always had Tori Spelling by a solid inch or more except when she was in heels.
scir91onYouTube said on 29/Apr/11
i am 5'9" and i have long arms which gives an illusion that i am 5'11". jason is proportionate but he is quite short. i would say 5'7" at most. he has also aged terribly. all that drinking and playing hockey in the sun has destroyed his skin, and caused deep wrinkling. he also never was into the gym. tsk tsk jason. you are a perfect example of how not to age. your height doesn't help either
Vic said on 13/Mar/11
I saw him at a bar during a retirement party, I'm 5'7" and was a bit taller. 5'8" maybe a bit shorter than 5'9". He was really cool, approachable and talkative.

Who cares...he is a very good actor. He is taller than me and I am married to a 6 footer, so there.

His claim of 5' 8" is comical, he isn't even 5' 6".

forget how tall he looked next to glenn. look at him with tiffani thessian.
Paul P said on 12/Jun/09
He was always cute though, shorter people look more solid to me. jason has nice shoulders and body and is very talented. if you have all that then your attractive in my opinion,
Allison said on 23/May/09
I saw him a couple years ago on the Caroline Rhea show. He was like 2-3 inches shorter than her, and believe me they had the same amount of heels (lifts) on

Curtis said on 6/Feb/09
im 5'5 barefoot...5.6 with shoes and i can say i've had no trouble with ladies.
No matter how tall you are...women like hard bodies! So if your short, try to hit the gym to bulk up a litte and get some nice definition...especially in your waist. Women like when they can see the lines of your pelvis(it helps if you have a nice chest..then you would just be consider really skinny)...sooo no matter what height...just be cool, in shape and have a good ass personality. People know when your height bothers you.
Women prefer guys taller not so much because they think short guys are unattractive...its because taller guys have that confidence about them! But short guys can have the same..and a girl really knows when you have confidence in yourself. But most short guys are insecure because of all the hear on tv "tall dark and handsome" **** THAT! 4'11 or 5'9 girls....it makes a difference if they're fat or really fit..right?...there ya go!

Listen ange my name is jay right my mates call me mini jay cause i'm six ten and my smoking hot ex girl dropped my ass for a guy that was five three you heard me believe it or not iwas stunned so don't tell me that all girls want a big guy cause some like gus that are short
Tessa said on 17/Jan/09
Ange shut up no one cares okay so what you like tall guys don't give me that crap all girls want tall guys cause i don't the heart wants what the heart wants and it don't matter if a guy is 4'11 or 7'12 if you love them height means nothing i have a lot of girlfriends and none of them have your attitude thank god not all girls want a tall guy over 5'11 and girls don;t make fun of guys if there under 5'11 grow up
Real said on 12/Nov/08
Glenn, Everyone I listed is under 5'11 on this site.. I made sure of that. [Except for the first 3, and I said they are barely 5'11.]
leonari said on 11/Nov/08
Ange: Shame you have such friends...I am below a tad below 5'8 and dated girls that most men would rank 9/10. But to some extent it's true. Many women are so superficial it's sad. And they say that WE men only go for physical appearence. I like big boobs. Do I date girls who have big ones? NO! Society is getting more and more bizarre. Glenn is 5'8" and states he is doing fine . Ange: your post is negative. I shouldn't even read it. Oh yeah and most of my girlfriends were taller than 5'4". To me 5'4 is rather short for a girl so your friends picking on shorter guys who are still 3-4 inches taller than 5'4" chicks...how lame!
glenn said on 11/Nov/08
some or half of those names you mentioned are 5-11.
Real said on 10/Nov/08
Nothing under 5'11? So that barely gives them Adrian Grenier, Brad Pitt, and Jude Law... and I guess they'd turn down George Clooney, Orlando Bloom, Matt McConaughey, Daniel Craig, Owen Wilson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jesse McCartney, Johnny Depp, Mario Lopez.. and Milo Ventimiglia and Jeremy Piven would obviously have no chance..
Lol.. Obviously that would not be the case.... there are always exceptions, and I don't think a guy needs to be famous to be an exception.. [like.. I was an athlete in HS, popular guy, I have $, and now I'm in Law school.. and I'm 5'6.. and I definitely do alright.]
Guys, don't listen to negative people like Ange.. I found a great post on Martin Lawrence's page.. It was posted on 7/24/07 by 'jojo' I recommend it for ALL short dudes out there.. and heck, it's a good read for everyone. It might be one of the best posts I've read on here.
Anon said on 22/Sep/08
The 5'6.5" reported here seems accurate to me. I'm 5'7" (female) and saw him in the grocery store a few years back. The first thing that came to mind when I saw him was that he's shorter than me, so the girls on BH90210 must have been really short or they were really working the camera angles.
Ange said on 9/Sep/08
Personality and confidence can work, but seriously among my friends short (less than 6'0) is to women what fat is to men. It's not PC, but it's the truth. My partner is 6'5 and while I do not care (I'm short and curvy) my friends who are 5'4 are very specific about not wanting to date a man shorter than 5'11. Oh they say it doesn't matter in polite society, but in reality they discard men all the time for being "short".
Brad said on 1/Sep/08
He wears Portmans everywhere.

Andy...see my comment below..Im with u 100%...its called "Big man's complex"...it doesnt affect most 'big' men..only a few tw@ts. Most big men are obviosuly sound and secure enough in themselves to be able to deal with it when they see a shorter guy picking up hot chicks left, right and centre...keep it real bru.."enjoy the power and beauty of your youth before its gone" !
Andy said on 1/Jan/08
Hey Guys, where do you rate height when you check out a girl. Yea, after looks, grooming, personality, style etc. Girls rate it something the same - nice to have, but no dealbreaker.
You think Kylie M is only beautiful because she is rich? Or would be more attractive if she was taller? She's perfect as she is.
Fat and flabby is a much bigger issue, but most girls I know wouldn't even count that as a dealbreaker. They aren't as shallow as us.
(Well I know one girl who has to have the tallest man going - her present guy is 6'7", and he is lasting longer than most only because of lack of taller competition. But she really is the exception)
Would you like a girl to be attracted to you, or to a tall guy, who happens to be you?
I'm 5'6", always excelled at sport, am outgoing, fun etc etc and I love women - they are way more fun than hanging with other guys.
I date all heights, well, from 4'11" to 6'2" so far.
I have never had an issue with a girls height, and mostly neither have they with mine.
In fact the only people who ever have an issue with my height are taller males, whose mummys obviously told them how tall and handsome they were all their lives. Bit of a shocker when their girlfriends fancy someone like me.
So, go get them guys, all those gorgeous woman need a little happiness in their lives, and it's up to us to give it to them.
They typically aren't worried about your height, why are you.
fto said on 25/Dec/07
Love the napolean complex remark..there is such a thing as a big man's complex which is when a big guy sees a smaller guy who is much better looking or talented and scores more women and then gets really insecure. I have met plenty of ****wits like this. I am an average/below average 5'7 in shoes and my 6'4 mate says he hangs around me cos he can pick up chicks with me about. No big secret..its a multitude of factors: intelligence, looks, talent, humour..i know the "secret"..sounds like a lot of people on here havent quite figured this out. i say go get a life, dont take this website to seriously, and get out there and try to get ahead in life in al the ways i have mentioned above.

There is no way he reaches 5-7.

i am a female relative of JP - he is about 5'7" maybe a half inch taller. i am 5'8" and have stood next to him a million times and we are almost the same.
Viper said on 25/Oct/07
Agree that he is 5-6 at most.
Robert R said on 7/Oct/07
I wouldn't agree with Anonymous that Priestley was a particularly good actor, he may have been okay in 90210 but to be a good actor you have to be versatile amd other parts he has attempted to play have been quite hammy. I think he will always be identified as Brandon Walsh.

i was watching some of a(bad)movie he made with Elizabeth (showgirls)Berkley,at 5'10" or so,she was clearly 3" taller than him.

Stood next to him at a hockey game, I am 5'6" and we were similar height and he was wearing skates.

He walked past me at a gun and knife expo in Pomona, CA. I'm 5.9 no shoes and he was positively no more than 5.7, assuming we had similar height shoes.
Brad said on 11/Jul/07
That's because he was wearing the biggest lifts you can buy. When you sit down, you lose the image of being tall.
loler said on 10/Jul/07
weirdest thing... I knew he was around 5'7" or so (he even became a cart (formula) driver eh) anyways he was on Conan tonight and when he greeted Conan (Conan is 6'4") he only seemed a few inches shorter 3-4" maybe... I thought that was really strange... But when he was sitting down and the camera had both of them in the same shot he was considerable shorter... Even the heads were different sizes not to mention the bodies.

the dudes a good actor and gets more ass than any of you who cares about his 'height' tall or short i liked him on bh90210
Jon Doe said on 6/May/07
Leung a guy who's 5'4 is pretty well screwed man, their are chicks that are more comfortable with short guys than taller guys but alot of them say "as long as he's over 5'4" I heard that like a million times from chicks who are in the 5'0 range.He can still get chicks but it's very unlikely unless he's rich and famous.Oh yeah and fat chicks have a way easier time getting guys than shorter guys have getting girls,haven't you ever seen all those seriously obese chicks in highschool who act all bitchy and think they're totally hot before? It's funny but I seen fat chicks look at short guys and go "ewww he's so small".And one thing that I find really dumb is the whole "neopolean complex",if a short guy works out he's got a "neopolean complex" < that's just dumb coz most of the bullies I'd ever had in school picked on smaller guys all the time it's no wounder they work out, **** I would too if I were them.And no matter what people think most short guys I know couldn't give a **** if the girl is taller or shorter than them,it may seem strange for some to see a shorter guy dating a taller girl but atleast if they have kids they'll end up a little taller and wont have to take as much **** for their height.Ben Stiller is 5'6 and his father Jerry is like 5'3 and his mother Anne Meara looks around 5'5, now imagine how ****ed he's be if his father had him with a shorter girl!
Now this guy Jason Priestley always looked 5'6ish to me.
Brad said on 17/Mar/07
90210 had the best camera operators around. Mr. Spelling knew he had a cast of shorties and he made them look much taller. Jason wears big mountain boots in a lot of shots. I just read an official 90210 old paperback "He's 5' 9"" Laughter!
radio_man said on 18/Feb/07
glenn what kind of shoes he was wearing and is he a nice guy?
Robert.R said on 9/Feb/07
That is true Viper. He always seemed to look shorter at West Beverley High, next to everyone else and like Luke Perry, his hairstyle gave him an extra couple of inches.
Viper said on 8/Feb/07
Sometimes he would look short, then other times look average.
Robert.R said on 7/Feb/07
If that is true Viper, then Jason Priestley must be really tiny because he still looked short in 90210.
Viper said on 6/Feb/07
90210 was pretty amazing in making their actors taller, more than any other show Ive ever seen.

You are right UNK I did not mean to be judgemental, I have never met Jason Priestley so I have no idea what kind of personality he has, for all I know he could be popular regardless of his celebrity status.
Leung said on 17/Jan/07
Glenn, I live in Sydney.
UNK said on 17/Jan/07
TJ you are giving too much credit to height. Height is relative anyway. 5'9" is tall to a 5'2" girl... 5'11" may seem short to a 6'0" chick.
I'm not denying that there's a height prejudics in society, but it's not nearly as severe as you claim.
As for getting girls, another mistake young guys make is not knowing their "type" their "range". You have to know what type of girls will respond to you... this takes time, but you could pick up signs from women that let you know they have a similar personality and sense of humor to you.
An over simplified example: If you're in punk band you go for the chick with the "Minor Threat" shirt & doc martens... not the chick with the $500 shoes on. Sounds simple, but many guys waste time hitting on the wrong girls.

And the gift of gab helps too.
Pete said on 17/Jan/07
leung, that friend is asking women for approval and that makes them run away from him. what women find most attractive on men is CONFIDENCE and not looks unless you are very very handsome.
attraction is not based on looks as much on personality and HOW U MAKE THEM FEEL.
Glenn said on 17/Jan/07
Where do you live again Leung? thats an interesting couple of stories thats true.
radio_man said on 17/Jan/07
he looks 5'6 in that pic, what kind of shoes he was wearing glenn?????
TJ said on 16/Jan/07
The real point UNK is that, unless there is something exceptional about a short guy, he will tend to lose out to an unexceptional tall guy because there is natural height prejudice that is instinctive. In the same way, fat women don't really do as well as thin women when it comes to landing a guy. That's just the way it works.
Leung said on 16/Jan/07
I have a friend, he’s 24, 5’6” about 120lb (now 140lb), very shy and had never dated, and not many friends in general, very much a loner. 12 months ago he made a decision that he was going to improve his social life. He went to the gym to improve his body, spent more time out at social gatherings and actively concentrated on improving his social skills, he learnt how to open up let people see his personality. He invested in some nice stylish clothes which don’t have to be expensive, and spent more time grooming. His whole life has changed over the past 12 months, he has a large social network of friends and has no problem going out on the weekend and getting dates.
OK on the other hand I have another friend, he’s 25, 5’4” and 115lb, so not too different physically to my other friend. He’s also very shy and never dated. Hanging out with guys he’s normal but around women he gets really nervous and jittery, he starts blushing and his ears go bright red.
One weekend recently I spent some time with him and observed how he approached women. A few women he asked for their opinion on whether they think he looked better with or without glasses, other times he would go up to a woman and say that he wanted to show them something and pulled out a envelope full of photos from his bag to show them. Even though women would talk with him none of them showed any attraction to him at all.
I tried explaining to my friend that he needed to stop with the gimmicks and concentrate on developing better social skills with women. But he refused to acknowledge what I saying and insisted that his opinion openers and photo routine were gold, so I said to him “if I see you do that stupid photo gimmick again then I will never hang out with you again”.

UNK has got it exactly right, if you are short and can’t attract women, it’s not lack of height that’s the issue, you’re problems lie elsewhere. Go workout and improve you’re body, get a haircut, go buy some stylish good fitting clothes, concentrate on improving you’re social skills.
UNK said on 16/Jan/07
I agree Viper... it's possible for some very lucky people to get by on looks alone, but you can't get by on height alone.
Viper said on 16/Jan/07
Some of us get by on looks alone though :) But you are right in that confidence is the biggest key and how you carry yourself. That just helps you in all aspects of life really.
UNK said on 16/Jan/07
You guys are morons. You are forgetting, basically, the most important thing girls are interested in, personality and confidence. We have no idea what Priestley's personality is like, so we have no idea how he would make out with the ladies if he were poor and a non-celeb.
Could you honestly tell me you haven't known guys that could always score with chicks, no matter what their height or looks were. Of course, I am not saying fat, bald, and 5'2... but I have known guys at 5'6" that were banging a lot more girls than a bunch of 5'10+ guys I knew.. they didn't have money or great looks either.. just a coolness and a personality girls went for.
Young girls just want to be with the cool guy. Older women want some one who could take care of them and has a little power/money. Don't be fooled by height, it's one attribute of many. Example, most women I know would rather have shorter guy with a great body and style (like mark wahlberg), than a fat slop at 6'0".
If you had nothing else to go on, all other things equal, than height may matter. Grow up, there are sooo many other factors to consider. I could tell you one thing for sure, the guy that thinks he is gonna get chicks just because he is tall, ain't gonna do so well... that's just not how it works with women.

I think when he was in 90210 he had that something which would appeal to teenage girls. As he has got older however, he seems to have put on weight and consequently, looks shorter than ever and appears to have lost that boyish charm. Still as you say leonari, fame and money can be a real attraction!
leonari said on 31/Dec/06
Franco: Non-sense. So you honestly think that if Jason Priestley wasn't a star and quite wealthy that he would have the exact same success with women because he is "HOT"? Man you live in a very strange world. He ain't that hot!! A bit more than average looking but since he is on TV: wow he is cute! Many chicks are this way. Lucky for you if you live in your own world. A h yeah Franco Mr. "Know it all" Why did Anna Nicole Smith marry this billionaire. Yeah I forgot: because he was hot!!!!! LOL. NO BECAUSE HE WAS SUPER-MEGA LOADED.
TJ said on 30/Dec/06
A lot would still pass him up because he is short. The real point Franco is that a short guy would have to be exceptionally good looking - and I do mean exceptionally - to do as well with the ladies as an average looking tall guy.
leonari said on 29/Dec/06
TJ is right: If you are rich and famous( has to be both), height is pretty irrelevant to chicks. But for example if you are only rich: doesn't work the same way...
TJ said on 29/Dec/06
I don't think that proves anything about height and girls Franco. The dude's rich and famous. Two very impressive words to many bimbos.
Franco said on 29/Dec/06
absolutely correct and he looks 5'6 not 5'6.5 even. saw him in italy personally and my cousin who's 5'7 were exactly the same height. cousing 1 inch shoes, Jason 2 inch shoes. both 5'8 with shoes.
let me add another thing, this is another proof that this SHORT guy JASON with his 1'68cm height can get any girl he wants, proof that tallness while important isn't everything. ;)
Brad said on 17/Sep/06
5' 5" plus 3" boots. Just look at him away from all those 90210 dinky cast people, he's a little guy.
Glenn said on 14/Sep/06
As Yoda would say"Midget he is".about Seth.5-3ish or barely scraping 5-4.Leung is jedi master of height.
HelloKitty said on 13/Sep/06
Leung, Seth Green is not a midget, he is just short, and similar to Tom Cruise he has boyish looks. Seth looks a couple inches shorter than 5'7 Tom. Midgets are the Ewoks and Willow.
HelloKitty said on 13/Sep/06
These celebs are funny. In the pic above, Glenn looks a good 2 inches taller than Jason Priestly and now he's claiming he's 5'8? LOL.
Brad said on 24/Aug/06
Compton meets Denver. Reverse 911 didn't help. Eazy-E freestyle. Gabrielle Carteris is 5' 1" so I give JP just a couple more inches. Garth is 5' 5" and about his size. That's it for 90210 for me cept Mr. Spelling in '79. He was a short guy at Fox. Made a lot of coin for that studio.
Danimal said on 18/Aug/06
GUN BATTLE OUTSIDE?????? Are you in the middle east Brad? You're one weird dude.
Viper652 said on 18/Aug/06
Brad, did you ever meet any of the other 90210ers?
Earl said on 18/Aug/06
How tall would you say he is then Brad?
Brad said on 18/Aug/06
He's one of the smallest actors in Hollywood. I met that really tiny actress from 90210 Gabrielle something once. She was 5' 1" and no more. He topped her by.....oops gun battle outside...gotta go...
Earl said on 16/Aug/06
I agree with Glenn. Priestley used to say he was 5'9" yet on Beverley Hills 90210 everyone was taller than him. I am only 5'7" yet I am willing to bet I am taller than Priestley. I think Glenn may have a point when he says he could be only 5'6" and Glenn has met him in person. If Luke Perry is 5'9" I am sure he is over an inch taller than Priestley.
Glenn said on 13/Aug/06
5-8?. in boots.
Danimal said on 13/Aug/06
He claims that when he is being listed everywhere at 5'7"???
Glenn said on 12/Aug/06
Who claimed 5-8?
[Editor Rob: priestley, that is the height he claims now]
Glenn said on 10/Aug/06
Priestly is 5-6ish,maybe, just maybe 5-6.5.Perry is 5-9.
[Editor Rob: he has claimed 5ft 8]
Danimal said on 8/Aug/06
He's not less than 5'6" Viper. They used to list him as 5'9" in the early 90's and Dylan (can't remember his real name) at 5'10". Then they had him at 5'7". Clearly he was rounding by close to an inch.
Leung said on 8/Aug/06
5'6" is short but not midget, if you want a real midget go look at Seth Green
Viper652 said on 8/Aug/06
Looks between 5-5 and 5-6 to me.
Lmeister said on 8/Aug/06
He is below average, but not a "midget". This is pretty damn accurate.
Brad said on 8/Aug/06
Met Garth. Same height. He's a midgit. 5' 5".
radio_man said on 5/Jun/06
he´s 5´6 , that´s th true!!, in 90210 he used to wera shoes with heals and it was still shot!! so 5´6 is right.
Viper652 said on 12/Feb/06
I thought Jennie Garth was 5-5??
oliver said on 11/Feb/06
i have met him and i am so sure that he is not taller than 5f6 he is probably between 165 and 167 cm not more definately he is shorter than 169 eves with the heels of his shoes
Greg said on 28/Jan/06
Jennie Garth was the same height as him on 90210, so 5'6 is about right
MD said on 27/Jan/06
This is so weird. I'd always guessed him average height, at least. It's amazing what TV and Hollywood can do with camera tricks.
J. said on 27/Jan/06
I never realized that him and Luke Perry were so darn short. Y'know, thinking about it, most of the 90210 gang seem to be hobbits. ;)
Tina said on 17/Jan/06
I Ran into Jason Priestley at a Fishing camp in Northern BC Canada- I'm 5'8
and I was towering over the guy. I would almost put him at 5'5 (Bare feet)
The shoes he wore had a big Heel on them.
Glenn said on 3/Dec/05
met him and he is for sure 5-6.I have photo proof of him and I.Im 5-8.
[Editor Rob: you seem to have met a fair few stars ;) If somehow, someday you can show just one pic of you+star it would be good...]
Anonymous said on 2/Dec/05
I think your name shows that you aren't serious eh? ;-) Priestley was a couple of inches shorter than Charlie Sheen when he did his guest spot on Spin City and a couple of inches taller than Heather Locklear. That would put him at around 5'7, give or take half an inch either way. Rob probably has him about right.
LMAO said on 2/Dec/05
met him. hes 5-11 for sure
CelebHeights Editor said on 16/Jun/05
Saw him while channel flicking on 8 Simple Rules beside Kate 'I'm 5ft 9' Sagal and Ritter. He was wearing 2.25 inch cowboy boots and she was in pretty normal heeled footwear. This guy without doubt looks to be in the 169cm range.
