Rob funny thing is when Goldblum appeared on Johnathan Ross in 2008-2009 Ross never really mentioned his height unlike his other tall guests for example legit 6’5 Vince Vaughn. Ironic given Jeff and Vince didn’t look that far apart in the lost world.

I think it is obvious in late 2000s Goldblum had lost a bit of height. Peak I think a chance of 6ft4 1/2 and today more 6ft3
Editor Rob
Flat 6ft 3 now looks likelier.

He may have lost an inch today or a bit over. Peak height looked similar to listed height. That was likely his evening

He's looking more 6'3 1/4 these days tbh.

All the recent pics Jeff Goldblum give the impression of a 186cm guy. I thinks he's definitely lost 5cm in height. Look at Vince Vaughn current photos he looks 188cm now.
Both brilliant actors/comics There are a lot of 2023 photos of the pair with other people. They are shorter can't deny this

Sandy-Not everyone thinks he’s a good actor
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Feb/23
If you look very carefully, you’ll see that David Cronenberg actually plays the gynaecologist in ‘The Fly’; his face is masked though.

Jeff looked HUGE in ‘The Fly’, which I went along to the cinema to see. I pitied anyone who was sitting near to me, as I screamed the whole picture house out when Jeff came bursting in through the window!

6ft4.5 peak and 6ft3.75 now. Great actor! 🪰

Jeff struggles to look 6'3 there.

I definitely see your point, although in that photo with the 6 footer, Ben is bending his knees alittle, so could look a little shorter as a result.

EDIT *I meant Jeff, not Ben, what was I thinking!"

@192Leprechaun no way he's under 6'3 outside of his 60's, he always hit as a very strong 6'4 er, he was at least still 193 in the first decade of this century
berta said on 28/Dec/22
never looked under 193 at peak and could pull of 195 sometimes because he is skinny. On aveage he did look 194 cm. i think 193,5-194 really was his peak. today he can look 6´3 alot but he will of course measure taller. still 192
James B 172cm said on 26/Sep/22
Yeah hard to see Vince under a legit 6’5 compared to Goldblum.
Adam992S said on 25/Sep/22
Jeff Goldblum 194 CM peak or 6’4 and change

Vince Vaughn had the edge in height over Jeff in The Lost World, by about 2CM

Vaugn 196CM or full 6’5
192cm Leprechaun said on 10/Sep/22
6'2.75" peak is still a giant in Hollywood. Goldblum would be too tall to play Superman, Spider-Man or Batman.
James.B 172cm said on 16/Aug/22

Proper listing
6'3 5
Matt6'4.5 said on 16/Jun/22
Just saw Jurassic World Dominion. Mediocrity of the movie aside, it was neat to see Goldblum again. But next to Sam Neil Jeff is definitely looking more 6’3 flat these days. I mean, he is nearly 70 now…
Ian C. said on 8/Jun/22
Goldblum appears shirtless in Invasion of the Body Snatchers, made when he was 25. A very thin guy at that age, but lean and muscular, rather than outright skinny. Later on he would put on weight, and I suspect that he lifted weights to put on muscle.
Sonnecker said on 4/May/22
Jeff's very skinny physique often made him appear a little taller than he was, so ain't no surprise that he looked 6"5" in some films! More realistically, he could be about 194 cm clean when he was younger, and I mean before 2010. Nowadays, with a good posture I'd go with 6'3" and a half, about the same of Liam Hemsworth.
miko said on 24/Apr/22
He seemed to hold his peak for quite a long time but he does appear in the last few years to have had a height collapse from 65 onwards. He can look under 6'3 at times now which is a big change.

Arch Stanton said on 2/Apr/22
Wow, that's the first time I've ever seen Goldblum not look very tall in that pic with the model!
James B 171.5cm said on 31/Mar/22
Saw him in the Switch last night which came out in 2010.

Probably shrunk slightly at that stage and seemed very hunched over. I guess a lifetime of looking down at people can take a toll on your back/posture.
Canson said on 24/Mar/22
@Rapha: probably what he’s listed at his peak for his afternoon/evening but he would be a solid 194 at lunchtime if 6’4.25 is his afternoon. Solid 194 meaning 6’4 3/8” because 6’4 3/8 is actually 6’4.375 and 194 is more 6’4.378
Rapha said on 23/Mar/22
He is at least 194 cm peak. Could even pass for 195 cm
Canson said on 6/Feb/22
@Ian: I’d give him the 6’4 3/8 for his lunchtime measurement. Meaning he’s 6’4.25 afternoon. I bet he was my height at his peak
James B 171.5cm said on 27/Jan/22
Last time I saw the lost world I did think there was a detectable difference between vaughn and goldblum (although obviously not much between them).

So I’d say Vince could pull of looking a full 6’5 if goldblum was 6’4.25.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 26/Jan/22
Canson said on 29/Nov/21
@James B: Vaughn could be 6’4.75 peak. But at times it could look 2 cm too. I’m undecided on Vaughn’s peak or current

Vaughn could have 6'5 peak imo, but seeing guys like Howard Stern, Bo Burnham, and even TIm Robbins, i think 6'5 is the absolute highest i could go for him at his peak, currently maybe on 6'4,5-6'4,75 , i'm a bit surprised he fell from 6'5 to weak 6'5 and then even weaker 6'5 range in his mid 50's
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 26/Jan/22
@Thorfinn Today he enter weak 6'3 range where he could be edged by even Chris Pratt, let alone a legit 6'2 model, she would do it more convincingly (note: btw, Jeff bending his knee in the pic where he look smaller, and stands straight, he could be just weak 6'3 now max
5'10 Dude said on 25/Jan/22
In that older photo with Conan he looks a strong 6'4. His claim seems honest to me. These days he is shorter, but he probably hasn't lost more than an inch. In more recent photos he is shorter than Conan, but not by a lot. Goldblum is one tall guy.
Devan Saghinashlarratt said on 19/Jan/22
@Canson yeah there's a good chance that you and prime Neff are inseparable, Alex Skarsgard would also be it
Thorfinn said on 18/Jan/22
Jeff Goldblum walked a fashion show recently. Jeff with 6’2 listed model. First picture Jeff looks shorter and losing height , 2nd looks taller.
Rob do you think the model is under listed and is more 6’3 range? Or does the angles and who is closer to camera complicate things.

Editor Rob
Today he may well be nearer 6ft 3 flat if measured.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/22
Seems too modest to claim 6ft5
Canson said on 15/Jan/22
@Ian: agreed. That’s the inconsistency with the site however. He is listed 6’4.25 which is probably his afternoon low whereas if Rob used lunchtime 6’4 3/8 would prob be it. I agree with afternoon as there is no confusion then. He and I could’ve been the same height in his prime. I agree with his listing it it’s an afternoon as he looked the tallest of those guys other than maybe Skarsgard as they were probably the same. And maybe Haysbert.

here's another photo of goldblum and conan

Jeff looking 1 inch taller here (probably camera angle)

yes, the tilt make jeff look taller and still in his peak, i think he's just 6'4 flat that year, but i think from 90's and below, he was a legit 194 cm or 6'4 3/8

He carried full 6'4 last 2 decade and last decade he start to falling apart to 6'3,5 and recently can look only 6'3 or could dip below it too

Peak 194 cm, Current 190-191 cm
David Tang said on 4/Jan/22
so i should stand tall but not busting a gut correct rob?
Editor Rob
It's the difference of a few mm...I am never going to object to anybody under my stadiometer who does bust a gut. Like I said before, most people don't breathe in and really strain that last couple of mm.

rob how tall do you think Jeff looks with conan? I am thinking maybe 6'4.5 although a lot of people on this site think conan is 6'3.5.
Editor Rob
He could look taller than Conan for sure, just how much though...
Rising174cm said on 12/Dec/21
@Canson: I agree that the peak height is fine. But he's probably not over 6'3" flat now and certainly closer to 6'3" than 6'4". He made it into his mid to late 50s without noticeable height loss, but has shrunk a lot in his 60s. I'm sure his posture hasn't helped.
Canson said on 9/Dec/21
@Rising: I’d say goldblum was my height in his prime. I think rob has him on the money. 6’4.5 is too high for an afternoon I agree. But VV may be 6’4.75 peak or 6’5 but no higher. 195 cm is prob ok for him
Rising174cm said on 8/Dec/21
Vaughn looking no more than 6'4.5" by his late 40s makes something like 195 cm most likely. Either way, 6'4.5" is too high for Goldblum overall. People are probably fooled by his build. Peak listing is fine, though he's no more than 6'3" today.
David Tang said on 29/Nov/21
tall guy. hey rob quick question. at the doctors in august. they measured me at 5.5 (I think it was a weak one though). but when i go to measure on my wall, it seems to be below that by 1/4-1/2. yes floor and wall could play a roll but i feel it is too little. where is the best place i your imo to measure height in the house without stadiometer. also the dcotors didn use a stadiometer, real weird. they used a blank wall with a tool on top to hit my head, but no tape measure to give the measurements.
Canson said on 29/Nov/21
@James B: Vaughn could be 6’4.75 peak. But at times it could look 2 cm too. I’m undecided on Vaughn’s peak or current
James B 171.5 said on 28/Nov/21
rising- 6'4 1/2 is possible if vince Vaughn was a full 6'5
Rising174cm said on 25/Nov/21
Better chance of 6'4" flat than as tall as 6'4 1/2", imo, but slightly over 6'4" is probably correct. Either 1/8" or 1/4" over 6'4" is likely as Vince Vaughn had 2 cm max on Goldblum back in the 90s. Naturally, his lanky frame made him look quite tall at a solid 6'4". He still looked like a full 6'4" when he starred on Law & Order: Criminal Intent and was taller than Vincent D'Onofrio at the time, but he's shrunk noticeably since then.

But Goldblum's height loss has been particularly noticeable the last 5 years. Look at him with Chris Pratt, Tom Hiddleston, Liam Hemsworth and Jimmy Fallon and I'd guess he's maybe 6'3" flat these days. His posture has made him look as short as 187 cm range. He's the same age as Liam Neeson and their height loss has followed a very similar trajectory. In contrast, he still looked 6'4" in the pic above if Gould was 6'1" in '09. Between '98-'07, he generally seemed a bit taller than Conan, but actually didn't look any taller compared to Conan than other 6'4" guys have. He might have held on to 6'3.5" until 5 or 6 years ago, but I can't see him that tall at 69.
JamesB171.5cm said on 5/Nov/21
Rob why did you originally have him at 6’4 flat? A lot of people seem to think he was 6’4 1/2 peak so 6’4 (193cm) was definitely to low for Jeff
Editor Rob
he'd claimed the 6ft 4 without a fraction, but in subsequent years came out with that part a couple of times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/21
Jeff in his 30's may well have woken up a fraction over 6ft5

Johno said on 28/Sep/21
Perhaps not now but Goldblum used to be an individual that could measure 6'4 and perhaps even higher.

Still 6'3+
Stalker China said on 21/Sep/21
@Canson yeah, he's still edging 6'3 guys like Liam Hemsworth, and i think he would do the same with Chris in the right angle and stance. so 6'3 is still possible in his old days
Stalker China said on 21/Sep/21
i think peak is just a fraction below 6'4,5, and now 6'3 ish sounds just right, really accurate guessing imo. he really was and is taller than Conan O'Brien.
Tall Sam said on 5/Sep/21
Interesting comparing him with Liev Schreiber, back when they were in Spinning Boris, Jeff looked considerably taller, sometimes near 2 inches height advantage (this still gives Jeff an advantage though through proximity to camera), compared to Isle of Dogs premiere where Liev could look scarcely shorter than Jeff.

Fair enough mate, a weak 6'3 could be possible.

Jeff looks mightily similar to 6ft 1 ¾ Tom Hiddlestone.

Perhaps at 68 Mr Goldblum is closer to 6'2.5
James B 171.5 said on 29/Aug/21
rob do you agree jeff can pass for 6'5 here with will smith? Click Here
Editor Rob
not quite 6ft 5, unless you go with Will near 6ft 2
Canson said on 26/Aug/21
@James B and Rampage: he could easily pass for 6’4.5” if Smith is 6’1.5”. Maybe even 6’5”. But I think Smith is more a strong 6’1 guy who maybe wakes to 6’2”. That explains the pronounced difference with Avery. That can still put a peak Goldblum where he is listed here or maybe the 6’4.25- 3/8 range perhaps. I could see 194 for him. Likelihood is that he measured late in the day.
James B 171.5 said on 24/Aug/21
Did he look 6'5 in Independence Day? I thought next to will smith 6'4 1/2 looked possible
Editor Rob
Could look 6ft 4.5 in some scenes, but then hasn't he done that in numerous films in his 20's through to 40's!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Aug/21

rob seagal and were slender to but on screen they never looked as tall as jeff did.
James B 171.5cm said on 9/Aug/21
Rob I watched the 1985 film ‘into the night’ and I don’t know what it is about Jeff but he looks a much more stronger 6’4 than Liam neeson and Steven seagal.

Do you think it could be because Jeff has a smaller head size than neeson and seagal? Sure Jeff was skinny but so was a 1988 Steven seagal.
Editor Rob
maybe his slender physique aids how tall he can look.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Aug/21
While watching Jeff with the supposed gangsters in 'into the night', they all look so small! 🤭😂😆

I really did think these guys were average at the most, but John Landis makes a few appearances with the vagabonds and he'll have been 5ft10.5 back in 1985, so the other guys only looked undersize because of Jeff!

They must have been steaming! 🤢😤

6ft4.5 peak and 6ft3.75 now.
David Tang said on 5/Aug/21
tall guy. rob help me out. I measured today at the doctors 5'9.5, with something ike a stadiometer but not quite like it, it had no markings, and at home that same time im 5'9 and a bit over, but not 1/2 an inch. could it just be i measured inaccurately?.
Editor Rob
there is always the chance of errors when measuring.

However, if you take a little bit of time, redo it a second time, and ensure your wall/floor is pretty flat and perpendicular, there's no reason not to get a pretty accurate measurement, plus or minus a small error.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/21
Overall, probably had a better shot at 6ft4½ than Neeson and Hoff
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/21
Begley could've been a weaker 6ft4 peak...

Maybe not quite a full 6’4.5 peak but 6’4 3/8 is not necessarily impossible

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/May/21
I'm watching 'The Fly' and the scene when Jeff's Brundlefly bursts in through the hospital window and pleads with Geena to keep his baby is really emotional. I remember finding it upsetting at the pictures, and wiping away a tear or two.

This huge man has just lifted the six foot, albeit extremely slender, Geena up into his arms as if she's weightless! I can't see it having been much of an effort for Jeff at all.

I've recently seen Jeff playing a photographer in 'The Sentinel', and ten years later, he took on the part of 'The Fly'. You don't tend to lose height from 23 to 33, and Goldblum the Great is no exception.

6ft4.5 peak; 6ft3.75 today. 😃👌
vastlybetter566 said on 25/Mar/21
Rob, does Jeff have a larger than average head size for strong 6ft4 range?
Editor Rob
looking at him, I think his head size isn't big for his height range
Arch Stanton said on 24/Mar/21
Still looks very tall, maybe not the full 6'4 any more. Still has a youthful energy and charisma about him. One of those rare guys over 60 that young women would still look at, see how some of the young women singers treat him during his performances!

Ed Begley Jnr seems taller, even accounting for footwear.
Canson said on 17/Jan/21
@Rising: yea if anything I would give the 1/4” over to Seagal or Lundgren before I gave it to Seagal. My opinion for afternoon heights for Seagal are what I said on the other page this week 6’4 peak 6’3 today. Goldblum I’m unsure of. If he’s as low as 6’3.25 means he’s lost as much height as Seagal has today
James B 172cm said on 15/Jan/21
I did not think there looked that much really been donald and jeff goldblum
Costa said on 14/Jan/21
I’m watching Invasion of the Bodysnatchers right now and Jeff is clearly at least an inch taller than Donald Sutherland. So either Sutherland’s height is wrong or Goldblum’s. They can’t both be currently the same height. .
Rising174cm said on 28/Dec/20
The downgrade is closer as I think this is the most he could currently be. I think Steven Seagal's current listing would be even more likely, though I think there's a better chance of Goldblum being a 1/8" to 1/4" over 6'4" peak while Seagal was never over 6'4" flat.

Tall Sam said on 29/Oct/20
Its crazy how short they make him look in The Fly, which I recently rewatched. I think he was often barefoot whereas Geena Davis was usually sporting some kind of shoe. Of course as his deformities increase he gets less and less upright until he's using a cane and peering up at Davis. But even when meeting John Getz's character presumably both are shoed but Getz doesn't look that much shorter despite being 6'2" max. I wonder if Cronenberg made the other 2 main actors sport superior footwear to make Goldblum seem more disadvantaged or something early in the film.

As listed for peak.

🎈🎉🎁🎂 Happy Birthday Jeff! 🎂🎁🎉🎈

Birthday Greetings to the terrific Jeff Goldblum on his 68th Birthday!

He must have been very young when he starred as a confident glamour photographer in the 1976 horror classic 'The Sentinel'. Probably aged just 21, pushing 22, he played a professional businessman, and I think when you're that young an actor, a tall height helps you get the plum parts. The movie, by the way, was released in January 1977; an excellent, atmospheric shocker, which I thoroughly recommend.

6ft4.5, but I've only heard him mention 6ft4 in interviews! 🤭
6ft3.5 today. 😁👍 XX

I suspect Jeffrey Jones was probably not more than 6’4.5” in his prime and Jones was slightly taller than Goldblum in Transylvania 6-5000. Goldblum gets 6’4.25” from me for his peak. On Top Gear, I thought Goldblum even seemed a tad taller than 6’5” listed Jeremy Clarkson!

It's just a guess by random users its not always accurate.
Ian Cowan said on 5/Aug/20
Does average guess tell exactly how tall that person really is?
Ethan99 said on 3/Jul/20
Standing with 6'3.25 liam hemsworth, he looked around the same as him but that's because he has poor posture. If he stands straight, he would easily be 6,3.5. For a peak,i'll give him a 6'4.5 because he looks tall af in the 70s.
cmillz said on 19/Jun/20
Peak - 194cm
Now - 191cm
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/20
Click Here Ground is higher on Liam side and Jeff put a laugh bending his back behind that could give illusion to look shorter. People can took example with someone near their height and pose it like Liam and Jeff that will give more help on the shorter guy if taller one posture stand like Jeff.

tall sam- he did look slightly taller than ed begley jr in the 80s
Tall Sam said on 1/Jun/20
I know it's down to splitting hairs but I think the listing is accurate, Goldblum peaked at 6'4.25" IMO. I just don't see him quite reaching something like 195 cm. He usually looked a strong 6'4", not someone in the pushing 6'5" range. I feel this is reinforced near guys like Charles Rocket, Donald Sutherland, Conan O'Brien.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 1/Jun/20
I check him more thought at first he had drop to 6'3 1/4-1/2 but nope. Jeff still look pretty close to 6'3 3/4 now.
Daycringeothon said on 30/May/20
In the 80's I would say Goldblum was scraping 194.5cm-195cm afternoon height. a solid 193.5cm minus the hair in the afternoon. Still stood solid 6'4'' 193cm even in the late 90's at same time of day. He might be an 1/8" shorter by now and 1/4" by evening.
cmillz said on 29/May/20
He looked 6’5 in some scenes of The Tall Guy
cmillz said on 17/May/20
I’d say he was 6’5 out of bed for sure.
Canson said on 1/May/20
@Cmillz: I would guess my height peak. 6’4.25-.3 over just a flat 6’4”
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 30/Apr/20
Agreed. 6'4" peak is the worst case for him.
James B 172cm said on 30/Apr/20
even just 6'4 peak is crazy
cmillz said on 30/Apr/20
Really hard to imagine his peak being much less than this current current listing tbh.
cmillz said on 30/Apr/20
6’3 peak is just crazy. I’d bet a lot of money that Goldblum never dipped below 6’4 in his prime, even at an extreme low.
Matt Davis said on 21/Apr/20
Goldblum could pass for 6'4'' in the 80s and 90s though he's about 2 inches shorter than 6'4 and a half Bill Duke. Goldblum was heels in both Jurassic Park films. His peak height couldn't be taller than 6'3''.
Canson said on 29/Mar/20
@pov: I agree with your estimate here and on Conan’s page. 6’3.25-.5 range and I would say 6’4.25-.3 for Goldblum similar to my height
pov said on 28/Mar/20
Saw his interview with conan in 1993. He was definitely a margin over 6'4 at his peak, I agree with this listing. As for Conan I think if he was measured barefoot I think he'd be 6'3.5.
James B 172cm said on 22/Mar/20
okay there was one scene when vince looked a little taller but other than that they looked the same

arch- in photos from lost world premier i agree he looked 2cm taller but in the actual film they looked around the same height
Arch Stanton said on 21/Mar/20
Rob is very close I think, I thought Vaughan looked about 2 cm taller. 6'4.5 also arguable. Goldblum could pull off 194-95 at times though with his lanky frame.
James B 172cm said on 18/Mar/20
arch whats your opinion on his peak height? i'd guess 6'4 3/8.

he certainly made vince vaughn look 6'5 tops
Canson said on 18/Mar/20
@Cmillz: yea in your 50s or 60s he could’ve expected some loss
Arch Stanton said on 17/Mar/20
He's aged extremely well. His skin and silver hair looks way better than he ever looked back in the 80s or 90s. One of the coolest celebs in my opinion, a jazz pianist!

In the lost world he did seem like 6’4.5-6’4.75 range

Nowadays I don't see much more than 6'3 1/4. Peak was probably 6'4.
James B 172c, said on 21/Feb/20
Back to the topic of Jeff goldblums height

Vince Vaughn I think was genuinely an honest 6’5 peak since he towered John Faveru 6’0-6’1 in swingers Click Here

In the Lost World I’d say Vince and Goldblum looked virtually the same height however in this photo from the films premier Vince does seem to have the edge on Jeff Click Here

I wonder did goldblum have footwear advantage over Vince Vaughn in jurrasick park?
James B 172c, said on 21/Feb/20
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/20
I forgot about Dolph, James!

Yeah he falls into that category aswell. Not under 6ft4 peak. It’s just so bizarre considering the amount of height he’s think that he was once up there...but I think in Rocky 4 they shot some funky angles to make him look even more gigantic. Used to think he was a legit 6ft5

Well look how much height hulk hogan and David prowess have lost. I mean Dolph losing a good 1.5 inches is not that shocking if you compare it to prowse and Hogan.

dolph lundgren also had proportions as well
James B 172c, said on 16/Feb/20
Canson: I remember when watching Taken that at times Neeson didn’t look 6’4 in that particular film. Same in Batman Begins as well he didn’t quite 6’4.

Possible that by the mid 2000s he was 6’3.75-6’4 maybe?
Canson said on 15/Feb/20
@James B: I think because of Goldblum’s proportions. Seagal could look fractionally over 6’4 too at times but others under. Today next to Rob I have him as a solid 6’3”. I would give Goldblum his listing and knock Seagal to 6’4” flat like Liam Neeson or Hasselhoff are listed although Neeson has similar proportions to Goldblum which is why he looks taller than he is. It is possible that Neeson was also like 1/8” over. These are afternoon heights though not lunch. If lunch

I would go: Seagal what Rob lists him and Neeson and Hoff the same as Seagal if not Neeson 6’4.25 then Goldblum 6’4 3/8”. But I use my afternoon height of 6’4.25 too so that’s my standard since it’s close enough
James B 172c, said on 14/Feb/20
Canson said on 13/Feb/20
@Rampage: yea Seagal is a solid 6’4” for sure in his prime. Larroquette definitely isn’t under. He looked taller in person but I was young and it’s possible he had more footwear than my father when he walked past. But then I saw him on Night Court next to Moeller and he didn’t look it. He could pull off 6’4.5 at times but 6’4 is prob fine for him

Goldblum looked taller in films that seagal does

Canson what would you estimate Steven seagal? I have said this before but goldblum always taller than seagal I thought
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Feb/20
Yeah those look about right Canson. To me Lithgow is a guy who could look both a little under and a little over 6ft4 at times. For now I’d leave him at 6ft4 flat. Goldblum has looked 6ft4½ a lot in the past and even the full 6ft5 but has never claimed it. Always stuck with 6ft4 or a “skosh over” as he puts it. Neeson and Hasselhoff have pulled that off aswell when they were younger. But I think Conan has always scraped 6ft4, as has Selleck (he was also listed 6ft3½ back in the day - that hardly came out of thin air). Conan has claimed 6ft4½ which barefoot I just do not see except early morning.

I put Seagal and Larroquette in there with Neeson and Hoff...but both of them on the flip side have claimed 6ft5 (and could look at it at times). Not buying under 6ft4 for any of those four guys.
Canson said on 9/Feb/20
@Rampage: I tend to agree. My guesses:

Goldblum: as Rob lists him and that’s an afternoon height 6’4.25 (6’5 out of bed)
Neeson: Rob’s listing may be ok. If not he’s maybe 1/8” over what Rob lists him at his peak. My guess 6’4 7/8 or 6’4 3/4” out of bed and 6’4 1/8 or 6’4 flat afternoon
Hoff: probably same as Neeson. I’d go possibly 6’4.75 out of bed 6’4 afternoon or 6’4 7/8 and 6’4 1/8. I would give him the listing he has and maybe Neeson is the taller of the two by 1/8” meaning he may be under listed

Lithgow: id go with 6’3.75 and 6’4.5 out of bed

I think all four would edge Tom Selleck and Conan O’Brien. I have both for their peak heights at 6’4.25 out of bed 6’3.5 afternoon height I remember Selleck claimed 6’3.5 on two occasions.

If everything were consistent across the site and Rob used the lunchtime heights:

Goldblum 6’4 3/8
Neeson 6’4.25 or 6’4 1/8
Hoff 6’4 1/8
Lithgow 6’3 7/8
Selleck and Conan 6’3 5/8

Matt6'5 said on 15/Dec/19
Rob, how would you rank the following at their peak: Jeff Goldblum, David Hasslehoff, Liam Neeson, and John Lithgow? Just curious on your expert analysis!

- Goldblum takes first place based on how he looked in the 80’s-90’s. Looked a little taller next to actors who Neeson has also been pictured with

- Then its a coin toss between Neeson and Hoff for second. It’s hard to distinguish them - David has better posture and I reckon has maybe lost a little less than Liam but doesn’t mean he’d measure taller.

- Lithgow I rank last. Normal 6ft4 guy overall, could struggle with it times. Didn’t quite look it w/h Denzel but then easily looked it in Third Rock From The Sun. He’s got a larger frame than the other three aswell though...and was older by those years.
cmillz said on 7/Feb/20
I think Goldblum gives off a taller impression at times because of his proportions. Could definitely fool people into thinking he’s 6’5 at least in his prime.
Canson said on 17/Jan/20
@Cmillz: that’s about where I have Vaughn pegged. Max afternoon height 194-195 peak. I’m not really sure about how much height he has lost today
cmillz said on 16/Jan/20
Starting to think Vince was never over 6’4.5” peak.

James B 172c, said on 25/Dec/19
Rob sorry I know I have already mentioned this before but if Jeff was 1/4-1/2 taller than Ed Begley that could mean Jeff was potentially 6ft4 3/8ths peak? Unless Ed Begley jr was slightly shy of 6’4?
Editor Rob
Possibly Begley just shy of 6ft 4
James B 172cm said on 25/Dec/19
cmilz-goldblum looked 6ft4 3/8 next too ed begley jr i'd say.

always chance though could have been a bit shy of 6ft4 peak?

I think 6’4 1/4 is fine for him peak. Probably the exact same height as Canson.
James B 172cm said on 23/Dec/19
judging by how tall he looked next too ed begley jr in the 80s i think 6ft4.5 peak fits him ok.

Arguably all could measure 1/8th over that 6ft 4 mark, but I think Jeff in 80's and 90's looked a very comfortable 6ft 4 guy, so did Liam though, and Hoff...Lithgow maybe was right around 6ft 4, but I doubt under it either.

@Rob: of course we all make mistakes. You’re still better as an estimator than the rest of us collectively. However, I’m sure that there are some where one of us may be right and you may have been slightly off then several where you’re on point and we’re all off by a lot. My point to JamesB is that just because you estimate him a certain way doesn’t mean it’s 100% esp if you have not met him

@JamesB: Rob has never met him. Rob is great at what he does but nobody is perfect. Rob had Pamela Anderson at 5’6 then when he met her she was down to 5’5”. Tom Welling was listed 6’3 and once he met him 6’2.5. I believe he’s great as some listings are likely flawless and others within 1/2”
Editor Rob
Welling was not 6ft 3 but 2.75, but we all make mistakes 😎 I'm sure there are thousands of tweaks over the years to entries, most sites with an estimation model will be doing that as more knowledge or evidence is gained on a subject.

Hello Rob! Could I still say 6'4.5" could be better for Jeff Goldblum peak height? Here are Jeff's photos next to Armin Shimerman from 1993: Click Here Click Here
However, it is worth paying attention to their footwear, because Armin's shoes looked thicker than Jeff's shoes: Click Here Click Here Click Here
I think the full 11 inch difference between them looks quite likely. Remember that you met Armin personally. Rob, is there still a chance for Jeff at 6'4.5" in his prime?
Editor Rob
6ft 4.5 is the most I would argue, I don't think he was that far off it, but I give him the 6ft 4 and 1/4 as he probably got measured somewhere in that range.
James B said on 28/Oct/19
Maybe Donald Sutherland was closer too 6’4?
Tall Sam said on 28/Oct/19
I just rewatched him in Invasion of the Body Snatchers, though he could look to edge Donald Sutherland in it, though they look more or less close to even. I didn't recall how skinny he was back then, although he describes himself in character as 6'4" and 170 pounds, and he looks it. In a shirtless scene there, his build reminded me a bit of Jimmy Stewart. Jeff surely gained upwards of 25 pounds by the time he put on muscle 9 years later to be in The Fly.

🎈🎁🎂🎉 Happy Birthday Jeff! 🎉🎂🎁🎈

Wishing Jeff Goldblum a very Happy 67th Birthday! Jeff must have started his career fairly early, being in 'The Sentinel' as a photographer. It was released in February 1977 and made in 1976, so Jeff must have been 24/25. About the film, Michael Winner said, "I want to make a film so horrific that it has people fainting in their seats!"

Well, Michael, it still has that effect on me to this very day!

Birthday Greetings go to the great Jeff, who maintained his liking for the horror genre. I missed my chance of seeing 'The Fly' at the pictures in Autumn 1989 as my boyfriend was in hospital.

6ft4.25 peak and 6ft3.75 today.😁👍

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Oct/19

Although Jeff look 6'3 with Joe Manganiello but that doesn't mean he is this low in person. Posture wise he may drop more than peak posture better as a younger man. My uncle still close to 6'3 over 60 but he could look like only 6'2 1/2 when standing quite loose.
James Brett 172cm said on 4/Jun/19

Canson said on 3/Jun/19
@Rising: maybe it’s the way he’s built but I’d say he was my height peak 6’4.25ish so a little over 6’4” at a low
Rising174cm said on 1/Jun/19
Actually, Jeff could be as HIGH as 6'3.5", but I think it's more likely he was that tall maybe 3-4 years ago when he was struggling to look even that tall at times with Adrien Brody and Liam Hemsworth. His posture can now make him look like a weak 6'2" at times! See him with Jimmy Fallon, Tom Hiddleston and Chris Pratt. Over 6'4" today is impossible and I don't see him stretching up to a weak 6'4" anymore either. 191 cm now looks more likely than 192+ and 6'3" flat is possible as well. He's losing height fast these days after maintaining pretty much all of his height into his late 50's. Peak was 6'4" minimum at any time of the day and 1/8" to 1/4" over is likely, especially with the "skosh" comment. 6'3.5" is definitely generous for Jeff's current height. NO way has he lost only a half inch.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/May/19
Jeff could be as low as 6'3 1/2 now and as tall as 6'4 1/4 peak. 2cm lost at 66-67 is possible and he is still consider aging well on the positive side.
berta said on 28/Apr/19
Conan obrien is looking half inch taller everytime they meet last years . I think 1/4 downgrade on current height ( or its just posture) Conan always have pretty good posture.
Mark D. said on 25/Apr/19
Camera angle and shoes matter. It may explain why Joe Mangielo looks taller in that picture. I'd seen Jeff in a few pictures with Liam Hemsworth. One looking shorter, one the same height (taken at the same appearance from different angles). Another pic at that appearance in a different place, Jeff looks a lot taller. Liam being 6'4" I have to think Jeff is still about 6'4 1/4" down from a peak of 6'4 1/2". I did once round my height down to call myself 6'4" when I'm 6'4 1/2" but got tired of people telling me that I looked taller and should round up. Now I call myself 6'5".

berta said on 23/Mar/19
6`4 1/2 is to mutch acording to me, he always say fraction over 6 foot 4 i think he would say 1/2 if he was. He could look it but then you would say that its a mall amount. Most guy would even round up to 6 foot 5. I think he looked 193-94 range at peak and probably could be closer to 194 than 3 if i would lay a bet on it :)

If I'm right in assuming that you have named yourself after Sonny Black, Michael Madsen's part in 'Donnie Brasco', then I must compliment you on your taste in films. That Depp/Pacino/Madsen masterpiece is one of my all-time favourite gangster movies EVER!

Met him at an airport lounge and he was pretty much eye to eye with me, he was wearing some pretty tall shoes almost boot like. I’m 6’3 flat and I don’t inflate my height like many do. I say peak 6’3.75 and around 6’2.75 today.

@James Brett: I doubt Vince was ever the full 6’5”. He looks like a peak Tim Robbins or a peak Michael Jordan did. Guys who don’t measure less than 6’4.5 in the afternoon but only 6’5 in the early morning. In essence 1/2-3/4 I consider weak 6’5”
James Brett said on 21/Jan/19
Sandy-not much between Jeff and Vince in the lost world.

Some people do question thought if Vince really was a full 6’5
Canson said on 20/Jan/19
@Rising: yea seeing him now he may have lost an inch or near it. 6’4 1/8 is also possible peak that being said at a low of course

...yes, I've gone down a little from my December estimate! 😎

I have been watching the film 'The Sentinel', which was in the cinemas in 1977. Jeff plays a photographer, and will obviously have been at his peak height. I believe that this Michael Winner masterpiece in fear was actually shot in 1976, and although it contains a cast of tall (Chris Sarandon and Christopher Walken among them) and short (Burgess Meredith, who's fantastique BTW!), Jeff is without doubt the tallest cast member.

That's no evidence that he's a quarter or half-an-inch taller than 6ft4, but I do think that he did top that mark. He seems very matter-of-fact about his height, and he was a little, yet noticeable bit taller than Donald Sutherland in 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', which I also saw recently.

To be on the safe side, he gets 6ft4.25. I'd always read he was 6ft4, but I don't think people over a foot shorter than him would be best equipped at judging such a small amount if they met him!

Today's height? I reckon on 6ft3.5. He's still extremely tall.
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Jan/19
@Christian: I can agree with that. Even accounting for posture, I tend to doubt he'd be more than 191 if he's looking similar to 187 range guys now. Possibly still 6'3.5" around 2015-2016.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Jan/19
@Canson: I agree. 6'4.25" peak is fine, but looks a lot more 6'3" than 6'4" now. Here's another 2015 photo with Brody: Click Here I'd have guessed 6'2.5" there, but I'm sure Jeff is dropping more height.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Jan/19

6'3.25" today is possible for Jeff.
Canson said on 15/Jan/19
@Rising: actually you’re right. He does look lower. I would say peak 6’4.25 still looks ok though but today maybe less than 6’3.75
Mincer said on 14/Jan/19
Rob who do think would measure taller at peak and today, Jeff or Liam Neeson?
Editor Rob
It's arguable hat they might have been within a 1/8th or so...I can see Neeson as a possible fraction over 6ft 4, like Goldblum.
Rising - 174 cm said on 13/Jan/19
@Canson: I can't see Hasselhoff looking taller in that back to back comparison. The short tip-toe thing was at the end. I do think Hoff is/was taller than Conan, but it doesn't look that way in that comparison because the camera was low and on Conan's side. It's a shame they didn't use a good angle. Selleck probably edged out Conan that night because Conan guessed him 6'4"-6'5", but has only claimed 6'4"-6'4.5" himself and the way he said "I'm ABOUT your height" suggests he may have thought Selleck edged him. With that said, Selleck's boots looked like they could be 1.4"-1.5" range and definitely gave an advantage over Conan's dress shoes. There's a good chance both men were 6'3.5" barefoot and Selleck was about 6'5" in boots that night while Conan was 6'4.5" in dress shoes.
Rising - 174 cm said on 13/Jan/19
@Canson: I agree on at least 6'4" for Goldblum's peak, but you think he's just 1/4" under 6'4" in 2019? He was struggling to edge Liam Hemsworth even with a half inch footwear advantage, looked more of a weak 6'3" with Jimmy Fallon and now he's struggling to even look taller than weak 187 cm guys at times like Chris Pratt and Tom Hiddleston: Click Here Click Here James B posted video of Goldblum and Hiddleston from that event on 12/Sep/18 and Goldblum was still just edging out Tom by a half inch to inch. 4 years ago with Adrien Brody: Click Here Click Here If Brody is 6'0" then Jeff still looked at least a solid 6'3" so I'd say no less 6'3.5" standing straight in 2015, possibly still even 6'3.75", but probably not above 6'3.5" with Hemsworth by 2016 and now even that is looking questionable. Christian might be right that Jeff isn't much above 6'3" flat now.
Canson said on 12/Jan/19
@Rising: Hassehoff was and Conan tried to tippy toe to make himself taller. Selleck was taller than him but it was face to face correct abs you pointed out he had boots. Although not sure how much they add

Both listings here fit current and peak
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Jan/19
@berta: As far as I'm aware, Selleck never stood back to back with Conan and if Selleck were a full 6'4", he wouldn't have claimed 6'3.5" in the Magnum days. The most he'd be and claim that would be 6'3.75", but if that were the case, I seriously doubt he'd have ever claimed anything other than 6'4" so more likely 6'3 1/2" or 6'3 5/8". Hasselhoff did stand back to back with Conan, though I couldn't tell who was taller due to the angle.
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 9/Jan/19
He was not under 6'4" peak. He looked almost as tall as Vince Vaughn in Jurassic World, even though I think Vaughn edged him out a little bit. Jeff was at least 2 inches taller than Will Smith, probably closer to 3 inches taller when they were together in Independence Day. He was still taller than Liam Hemsworth in the second one, even though he shrunk since then. He's defintely under 6'4" today since he was shorter than Conan when he was on his show. He's more like 6'3" today than the 6'4" and change he was in his prime. He didn't look appreciably taller than Chris Hemsworth in Thor Ragnarok. He was slightly taller than Brian Dennehy and Danny Glover in Silverado. Jeff was undoubtedly a strong 6'4" man in his youth, closer to 6'3" currently.

GOldblum 6`4 1/4
Neeson 6`4 1/8
Conan 6`3 7/8
Selleck ( was taller than conan back to back ) Must have been 6`4
Hoff 6`4-6`4 1/8
Lithgow 6`4
Dolph 6`4 1/8
I think All of them are 6 foot 4 but there is max 0,5 cm over under that we talk, except Goldblum who can have been closer to 194. This is the legit 6 foot 4 "club" it only COnan that could be on the weaker side
Rising - 174 cm said on 1/Jan/19
@Canson: Actually with Neeson and Goldblum, I think their posture can make them look just 6'2" or 187-188 cm at times much like Dolph when he slouches so I don't see Goldblum closer to 6'4" than 6'3" anymore. Lithgow has been like that in recent years. I believe 66 year old Goldblum is now 6'3.5" max, but but he was still likely 6'4" in the photo above with Gould. So peaks imo were

Goldblum: 6'4" at a low so maybe 6'4.25" at lunch time. At least 1/8" or a "skosh" above 6'4" at noon.
Conan: 6'3.5" (Maybe 6'3.75", but his hairstyle and the camera used on his show make it difficult)
Selleck: 6'3.5"
Neeson: 6'4" (maybe 1/8" above at lunch time, i.e., a "wee bit above")
Hoff: 6'4" (same as Neeson)
Lithgow: 6'4"
Dolph: 6'4" at a low similar to Goldblum, maybe 6'4.25" at lunch.
Haysbert: 6'4.25" (not as sure about him so I suppose anywhere from 6'4"-6'4.5" is possible)
Canson said on 25/Dec/18
@Rising: I think you’re right. Even with Hoff he doesn’t have the best posture with Rob but I think he’s still inside of the zone to where it’s close to 6’4 192.5-193. He was a bonafide 6’4” peak. Today Goldblum could give off a lower impression than a weak 6’4” but to me he’s still inside that 6’3.5-.75 maybe when 6’3.75 still

Peaks imho were

Goldblum 6’4.25”
Haysbert 6’4.25
Neeson could be 6’4 or even 1/8” over
Lundgren could’ve been similar to Neeson anywhere 6’4-6’4.25 range
Hoff 6’4”
Lithgow 6’3.75
Selleck 6’3.5
Conan 6’3.25 (maybe best case 6’3.5)
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Dec/18
Last night I saw Jeff playing a very tall photographer in the 1977 Michael Winner film 'The Sentinel'. I have no trouble believing his all-time-high was over 6ft4, so he gets 6ft4.5 for peak and 6ft3.75 for today's height.

I've always found him very attractive, and that's not because of his height! It's down to his choice of films and his humourous side. Not many actors could manage to make 'The Fly' seem comical, but somehow, Jeff managed to!
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Nov/18
@Canson: I agree with all of that, though I'd say Hoff looks taller than Goldblum currently. Some of that is posture as Goldblum often doesn't stand well while Hoff still has pretty good posture, but I can't imagine Hoff looking like this in a photo with Chris Pratt: Click Here It's interesting because they're the same age.
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
@Rising: I think out of all of the guys around that size (Liam Hoff Selleck) that he would measure the tallest. I would say that Selleck would be the lowest of the four and Conan would be a bit lower than him at their peaks. I actually agree 100% with Rob at 6’4.25 for him. You’re right tho if you get a guy at 6’3.5 next to him there’s gonna be a noticeable difference
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Nov/18
@berta: I agree and think he's a guy who probably would have pretty much measured 193 throughout the day so with many closer to 192-192.5 range understandably claiming 6'4", Jeff could seem more like a 6'4.5" guy compared to guys who round up or even a guy who measures a flat 6'4" noon, but drops a a little below it later. Add to that his lanky build and it's not surprising he was called 6'5". As I've said, if you look at him with Gould above or remember him on Law & Order: Criminal Intent at the same time, he still looked 6'4" so he hadn't lost much or anything by his late 50's, but some lose height quickly once they start shrinking and Jeff's posture could be making this worse. 2 years ago he was struggling to edge out 191 cm Liam Hemsworth, but now he's struggling to look taller than 187 cm Chris Pratt in some pictures. I think he's a guy who slouches more if he's with someone shorter, but it's possible this also shows he's losing height fast now. But he didn't look a full inch shorter than Vince Vaughn behind the scenes 20 years ago: Click Here That's 2 cm max. It's a shame there's a full pic from the premiere, but Jeff's posture is way too bad to tell anything: Click Here but I think Vaughn was around 195 cm or anywhere from 6'4.5"-6'5" while Goldblum had to be 6'4" or what Rob lists him and no more, no less.

@Rob Can you add "jazz performers" category?
Editor Rob
There was one added Here
berta said on 3/Nov/18
he realloy could look 194 peak but the problem is that he can look 6 foot 3 flat with guys like tom hidllestone and chris pratt. well even shorter than that. i dont think he is that "short" but he really isnt over 192 today. He is in good shape and have great body even today. I dont think he have lost more than max 1,5-2 cm. And that makes him 193-193,5 peak. Again, he could look taller. but over the listed height would would mean 1 inch lost and thats not the case.

However Goldblum did not look under 192cm when standing straight. Posture wise he dip into looking 6'3.
