Solid 5'3" guy. Top of his head would be less than Rob's eye level. I'm a 1/4" under 5'7 and my eye level is 5'2".
Nik said on 20/Nov/18
He is a weak 5'4", at absolute minimum!
Johnny Sebcam said on 18/Nov/18
5'2 for sure...
Zampo said on 16/Sep/18
Around 5'4 but I do think 5'3.75 is a possibility.
Nik said on 24/Jul/18
The average vote is way too low for Jeff Cohen!

Why are you people saying he's like 5ft 2 or 3 you clearly don't know how to gauge height he looks at roughly the same level next to Rob as Jonathan ke quan actually a little higher against Rob than Jonathan but that's due to footware advantage. He's clearly five four
Pet said on 24/Apr/18
He's 5ft4
Slothee said on 16/Nov/17
Average is way too low! He looks 5’4” here at least, maybe even 5’4.25”. Accounting for extra footwear, he’s AT LEAST 5’3.5”, but likely bear 5’4”.
World Citizen said on 27/May/17
161 or 162 cm. So between 5 ft 3 or 4.
Timur9717 said on 8/May/17
Looks like 5 feet 3 inches to me.
Rent said on 1/May/17
I see more 5'3" than 5'4" for him on this picture, but you seen him in person Rob, so I trust you... ;-)

Not sure who Spit is?
Editor Rob: Bob and SPit the dog.

HUGE stars in the 80's in the UK...Rod Hull and Emu, Keith and Orville...sock puppets ;)
CD said on 27/Mar/17
He really does look around 5ft 4 with Rob, he has a fraction more footwear so maybe he's more towards 5ft 3.5 but no way 5ft 3 or less! Jonathan ke quan looks a more solid 5ft 4 id say
Eric said on 26/Mar/17
I agree with John, at least 5'2.
Editor Rob: well, John is Spit and you are bob carolgees, so it would make sense for you to agree 🙂 🙃
John said on 24/Mar/17
@Rob Well, most people agree that he's at most 5'3, according to the average guess.
John said on 23/Mar/17
Looks 5'2.5 here.
Editor Rob: no way that short John! 😬

A 6'6 male is statistically far more of an outlier than a 5'5 guy. You realize that, right? 5'5 is only as much of an outlying height for a male as 6'2. Unless your conception of what a 5'6 guy looks like is in fact not what a legit 5'6 guy looks like but maybe more like what a 5'4.5-5'5 guy looks like.
Realist said on 3/Oct/14
This guy is not 5'4 he is 5'3.5 tops.
Clay said on 4/Sep/14
I see grown ass men under 5'6 just like I see 6'5-6'7 when I go downtown or to a large shopping mall or something, it's just real rare.
new guy said on 18/Aug/14
Hey rob do you tend to see guys this short often? Because its rare height for a male
[Editor Rob: I see many men under 5ft 6. But I do go to local shopping centre nearly every day so there's a few thousand people you go by]
Realist said on 3/Jul/14
@cd Rob looks average height in 90 per cent of the photos in my opinion.
cd said on 24/Jan/14
Rob is 5'4.5" possible? Doesn't look quite like a four inch difference to me, plus he's barely shorter than Corey Feldman in your photos (both had a footwear advantage as well) as well as in real life.
[Editor Rob: he had about 1/3rd inch more shoes than me, I think nearer 5ft 4 flat is ok.]
Adamz said on 23/Jan/14
IM 173/4 CM LIKE RAWB AND WISH TO GAWD i as 5'10/11ish (avg hgt) but when i see THIS it makes me fell sOooOoOoo SAFE BCUZ IT BE SO MUCH WORSE !! HEHEHHE
cd said on 17/Nov/13
I don't think he looks under 5'4 next to Rob. I just think the photo gives a shorter illusion because it looks as if he's lifting himself up slightly with Rob's shoulder.
The Exorcist said on 31/Oct/13
Rob, what height is your eye level? 5'3"?
[Editor Rob: right arond 5ft 3.5 if looking straight ahead]
cd said on 5/Sep/13
Rob is he lifting up a bit here? He appears to be taller than his co-star Jonathan Ke Quan (also 5'4") does next to you...
[Editor Rob: they are both very similar I think, he had a fraction thicker footwear than me]

Funny how him and Corey Feldman (both in the Goonies) are around the same height today as adults.
----------------------------------------------------

Child actors are usually very small so they can play younger than they are, but give a better performance than a kid who is atually that age. That's why so many of the people who were child actors when younger are not large adults.
richkid123 said on 9/Nov/12
weak 5'4"....... yikes
Aragorn 5'11 said on 22/Oct/12
More of a 5'3 or 5'3.5. Looking about 5 inches shorter than Rob here.
CaptainSpaulding said on 16/Aug/12
Seems 5'3" at most.

5 ft 3 in/160 cm is right for him, i think...
D-Lurker said on 17/Dec/11
Y'know had he walked down the street, I wouldn't have recognized him. he looks worlds apart from the "Goonies" era.( despite the obvious age difference ;)
jasperwazap said on 30/Nov/11
5'3.5''-5'4'' he probably always has to show id every time he goes for a drink. great actor in Goonies.
stoodnext2 said on 8/Sep/11
Rob it's cool to see you towering. 5'8-5'9 is a GREAT HEIGHT. I say you could be not TOO TALL for the 5'foot girls and if you were to spike your hair, wear nike shox/basketball shoes, or some other thick shoes, PLUS a 1 inch lift, Now you look Just about 6'feet (And Rob out of Bed that would make you look around 6'1 "5'8.9 out of bed + Hair- 1 inch, + shoes, 1.5inch, + lift- 1 inch". Just goes to show basic stuff like shoes and hair, mixed with maybe a small 0.5 - 1 inch lift can make you taller if needed.

wow. seemed big for a kid, didnt grow much after goonies. 4 inch difference the other person starts to tower over the other

There does seem to be a trend of child actors to be short. Maybe drugs/lifestyle something to do with it.

The main reason why child actors are short is that they can play an age younger than they are. A short 10 year old can play an 8 year old better than an average 8 year old could, in theory anyways.
James said on 14/Apr/11
he could be 5'3 flat and appearing 5'3 1/2-5'3.75 with footware advantage.
makeyes said on 6/Apr/11
nice image Rob lol you kinda look like Jesus or something, the should hire you for The Passion Of Christ 2, hehe :D

damn jeff has grown up since the goonies, agreed on 163cm, i think the margin of error here is 1cm up or down, so 162 or 164cm is possible

Jamal, I would think it comes down to this. You either have a parent that was an athlete or not. The non-athlete probably did theater, music or acting in school. It never panned out to anything more. They grow old and have a kid, a kid with their genes. Where do you think they will find an after-school activity for their child? That is right. And again, a child with their non-athletic physical abilities: meaning short, among other things.

This may be the reason why some people don't grow as tall as their parents, and another possiblity is early puberty. The person should at least be as tall as one of their parents. This could also be why the younger generation are downsizing in size.

Producers, Directors Pick Short Kids for movies all the time

Have you ever seen a show with a family where the Kid is as tall as the dad NO!.
usually the Dad should be 3-4 inches taller then the son

They want to pick short kids that look young it works out much better.
For ex. Joshua Jackson in the Mighty Ducks
Jeremy sumpter for peter pan they picked him cause he was 14 5'0 and looked young but after a few months that didnt work out did it
Maribel said on 10/Jan/09
We can't be telling people to grow at this height and that. That is up to them if they want to be short, average, or tall. Just let it go.
Jacob64 said on 23/Dec/08
While I agree that it's important to eat healthy, it's specious at best to think that this guy is short because he was on a bad diet when he was younger. Given the tons of crap that Americans eat and given their size - height and width - the diet link doesn't hold up. Odds are his folks are short and so is he. Anyone who has a problem with that seriously needs to get over themselves.
Minimum said on 27/Nov/08
If only younger people would get more on the fruit and vegatble diet and less junk food and get plenty of sleep at night, they'd grow as tall as the previous generations. But that's totally up to them, we can't force it down their throats.
miser said on 22/Nov/08
"No it is coincidence i know many that turned out huge take Jeremy Sumpter for example who grew like like 8 inches in a few months
and Josh Peck who grew 4 inches after 18 and he's been on tv since he was a kid"

Jerry O'Connel also. Maybe it is just coincidence but That's interesting... stressfull environments are bad for growth.
Minimum said on 20/Nov/08
This guy might've been on a bad diet when he was younger. That's probably why he's short.
Bruce said on 31/Oct/08
looks 5'4.25" to me
Zoe said on 22/Oct/08
He used to play football in Highschool so he might be short but used be pretty strong. And about child actors being short...A lot of them are also tall. Look at Josh Brolin, Cohen's Goonies costar.

And yeah, Rob, one thing I've noticed about many child stars is that they tend to turn out short. Very rarely do they turn out average or tall.

That's what I've been wondering as well. Is making movies bad for adolescent growth?

David Faustino, Corey Feldman, Sean Astin, Elijah Wood, Corey Haim, Daniel Radcliffe and many more are all around the 5'5 area.

Aw man, he doesn't look all cute and chunky anymore. All lot of these child actors always grow up to be real short for some reason.

i really love your girlfriend/wife ROB (in a friendly way), she's got an awesome smile that just put you in a good mood, hope i can find a girl with a smile like this....im in terrible mood in the morning so it would help LOL

Jeff seem quite on the short side eh, i thought he was taller though but yes looks 5'5 next to Rob, he's probably a weak 5'4, like 5'3.75

[Editor Rob: I appreciate your comment, although you're trying to pull my leg: Mads looks 5 inches on me, but I look only 3 inches on Jeff? Nice try ;)]
Brad said on 7/Oct/08
I wish you'd measure Glenn like Jenny.

[Editor Rob: when I'm in Ny we will take some photos barefoot. Then anybody who still has speculation or doubt will have that answered...to the mm!

I think you can hold off for 6 months...]
J.Lee said on 7/Oct/08
rob, i asked you some questions about jenny's height and girls and guys height. it was on that page with the 5 foot 8 guys with big hair, aj something. please post the link for that so i can see how you replied.

[Editor Rob: this is buckley page.

I have measured Jenny at a few heights in the evening now, yesterday she was 5ft 8.25 actually. Her range can be as high as 5ft 8.6 and as low as 5ft 8.25!]

Rob, Gotta say that the beard suites U. Have you ever tried handlebar moustache a la the Edge.

[Editor Rob: nah, it would get annoying having it too long.]

Guy's right, he looks exactly the same in both pics.
incline said on 4/Oct/08
whats up with that pin your girlfriend wears (sex?)? And a tinkerbell sticker sometimes...odd...

[Editor Rob: she is a sex addict...and proud of it.

no it's sfx [magazine] addict and she like tinkerbell ;)]
Guy said on 3/Oct/08
Wow, is he just a cardboard cutout? He looks exactly the same in both photos.
Alex said on 3/Oct/08
Rob, you look 4 inches taller than him at least and he has a slight footwear advantage. He could be 5'3 1/2.

[Editor Rob: by slight I'm talking he has a 1.2 inch shoe, so like 0.2. There is a chance he's slightly under, I did think 5ft 4 when I saw him, as did jenny.]
The Horse of FUNK said on 3/Oct/08
Wait wait, that's the fat kid from Goonies? Wow... I guess I can see it in the eyes, but other than that I never would've guessed that's him.

Spot on Rob.

[Editor Rob: all the goonies turned out short, well I don't know about Jonathan Ke Quan though? He was very pleasant I may add, and couldn't do the truffle shuffle these days...too slim!]
