Jim Carrey's Height
6ft 1 ½ (186.7 cm)
Canadian actor best known for starring in films like The Mask, The Truman Show, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Bruce Almighty, Dumb & Dumber, Kick Ass 2, The Cable Guy, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Liar Liar (in which his character said 'Around Six Two and 180 pounds').
He is tall. Unlike most actors, he appears far taller in person than he does in movies.
"Six Feet Two," Carrey says proudly.
- New York Magazine, 1998

@Celebheights 6’1.5”: I wouldn’t list him here at 6ft2 but I don’t think he was actually too far from it. The current mark is the lowest I’d go for him peak and a fraction more wouldn’t hurt.
I think in Dead Pool beside an older Eastwood he pulled off 6ft2 quite well.
Keith 5'10 said on 23/Mar/20
Maybe a 187cm peak? He can look in the 186-7cm range with Frank Langella on Kidding.

After meeting him in person several years back, I have issues buying that he was a full 6’2” in his peak. To me, Jeff Daniels was closer to 6’2 1/2” in the 1990s since he just barely edged out Ben Affleck. Will Ferrell, who was almost certainly a solid 6’3” a couple of decades ago, would destroy the plausibility of his claim. Jim Carrey was at least an inch shorter than him.
Morgan Freeman, who was likely a fraction over 6’2” in his prime, had at least 1-2 CM on him in Bruce Almighty.
To me, Jim Carrey was more like a textbook example of a man would measure up somewhere in between 6’1 1/4”-6’1 1/2” by lunchtime in his peak years.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Mar/20
Not sure if Jim lost some height but he only look 1/2 shorter than Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber To also sometimes look the same height.
serena said on 17/Mar/20
been rewatching all his movies the past couple weeks, I think he was 6'1.75"-6'2" in his prime and is maybe slightly shorter than that now, 6'1.5" but definitely no shorter than 6'1". he's always looked like a tall guy to me
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 16/Mar/20
I just rewatched I love you Philipp Morris, and he essentially looked to be shorter than Jim.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 16/Mar/20
He looked 186-187 CM by Will Ferrell.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/20
Worst case 186cm today. But if he were to give him that, I really think he should get 187-188cm range peak. That’s how he looked in the 80’s-90’s
Paddy said on 14/Feb/20
@jtm You sound like you need to unplug, go take a nap.
Nearly 180cm guy
said on 2/Feb/20
Please Rob, add him to the comedians category. Also, do you think that today, when Carrey is 58, could he have shrunk a little?
He's now reaching that age in which a fraction could be lost.
Jkiller said on 29/Jan/20
A perfect 187cm.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jan/20
🎁🎂🎈😆 Happy Birthday Jim! 😆🎈🎂🎁
Many Happy Returns to actor Jim Carrey, who is today celebrating his 58th Birthday. How ironic to see that he is pictured above with Zooey Deschanel, who has her Birthday on the very same day. Yup, Jim turned 18 on the day she was born! 🗝️1️⃣8️⃣
Have a fun-filled Birthday, Jimmy, reflective of all the fun you've given to so many during your lifetime. XX
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/19
I think he still looks to be hovering around this mark now. Certainly over 6ft1 flat anyway. He’s held up well over the years. 20 years ago he may have been nearer 6ft2, Rob?
Jtm said on 2/Nov/19
Does Paddy own this site now? If not then he shouldn't tell people what to do.
miko said on 18/Oct/19
He's at the age range where he might start to lose a fraction. But he's held up very well for a man not that far off 60. He's still a bit over 6'1.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Aug/19
@Yang I'm canadian and i have met Ryan Reynolds in real from some distance away and there is a big inch between Jim Carrey and Reynolds if put to compare. Jim is at least 6'1 1/4 now and 6'1 1/2 peak if he lost anything.
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 16/Aug/19
Nothing less than 6ft 1 185cm for sure!!!! Very similar range with Canadian Handsome sexy actor named Ryan Reynolds from Green Lantern!!!!! 6ft 1 half is the best guess for him!!!!
Paddy said on 1/Aug/19
I am astounded by people assuming this guy is 6'0"....He was a legitimate 6'2" in his youth, now I'd say 6'1" 1/2...He hasn't lost much. Just stop commenting if you think he's not a strong 6'1".
Terry said on 2/Jun/19
Certainly looks a tall fella.
berta said on 3/May/19
I think B peak and c today. But at the same time he may not have lost anything yet, just little worse posture
Vitas223 said on 15/Apr/19
Maybe 185 см
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/19
Colberto, in his prime A is arguable, at least B anyway. Nowadays toward C-D. Still looks a strong 6ft1 range now
Colberto said on 6/Apr/19
does this mean he's a big strong 6ft 1?
billionaireslayer said on 19/Mar/19
strong 6ft close to 6'1
berta said on 9/Jan/19
Yeah rampage i believe trump peak could have been 0,5 inch taller than Carrey. I think trumop was 1/8 over 6 foot 2 and Carrey the listed height ore 187,0, in that range
Vitas223 said on 6/Jan/19
Peak - 186 см
Today - 184-185 см
Yang (5ft 8 Chinese men) said on 3/Jan/19
Perfect Listing nothing less than 6ft 1 for sure.....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Dec/18
A peak Trump would be a little taller than Carrey I imagine
Monkey knees said on 27/Oct/18
6ft 2in peak in mid 90s. 6ft 1 1/2in now. Perfect listing.
Johncbs said on 2/Oct/18
Would he and a younger Donald Trump be at the same eye level?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/18
I'd be surprised if hes lost more than a centimetre. Really doesn't look much different compared to 20 years ago
viper said on 7/Sep/18
6-1.5 most I can buy
Jtm said on 6/Sep/18
i think freeman was more 6'2 than 6'2.5 but let's assume freeman was really 6'2.5. if you look at the last picture he's at least 1 inch shorter than freeman and he looks like he has better posture and maybe a little footwear advantage.
said on 4/Sep/18
I really doubts that Carrey would only have 6'1", flat 6'1" looks too low for him! He's often holding a bad posture, and Carrey did not look much shorter than Morgan Freeman:
For me, Carrey looked like a good guy, 187 cm tall. I think the peak height from Morgan Freeman was 6'2.5" while Carrey was probably 6'1.75" or at least 6'1" and 5/8 inch, but today Carrey can only have 6'1.25". Rob, I hope you've seen my previous comment about Carrey and the photos I sent back then. What's your opinion of Carrey now?
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 20/Aug/18
I wouldn't rule out a solid 187cm for a younger Jim Carrey. But I wouldn't go over that. Maybe 186.8cm measured by a doctor. Weak 186cm now.
Mister lennon said on 15/Aug/18
I would say 187-188 peak. Minimun 187 peak. Now, maybe 186-187 range.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 14/Aug/18
Looked 186-187cm easily in Yes man.
berta said on 5/Aug/18
i agree rampage that is a very goodlisting for carrey. I cant see him under 187 peak when standing at his tallest. of course with his posture ( lika a 80 year old lady :P ) he can look 185 but standing for a measurement i believe 187 ore even couple mm over peak. today maybe 186,5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/18
Maybe 6ft1⅝ peak?
Seems reasonable if Daniels was a weak 6ft3. There was never 2in between them, more like 1in or a little over. Nowadays I think Jim still clears the 6ft1 mark
said on 21/Jun/18
Rob, I understand why you would not like to go over 6'1.5" with Schwarzenegger and Will Smith, but I think you should not completely exclude the 6'1.75" list for Carrey. Here are some proofs:
With Nicolas Cage: Click Here
With Cage and Samuel L Jackson: Click Here
With Ewan McGregor and Rodrigo Santoro: Click Here
With Jeff Daniels: Click Here
Carrey sometimes holds a bad posture, which at times he may look shorter. I think he defeated Schwarzenegger and Smith who looked in the range of 6'1-1.5". I'm sure Carrey was more like Colin Firth, which is anywhere from 6'1.25" to 6'1.75" range. Rob, what's now your opinion?
QM6'1QM said on 25/May/18
To be honest, I really respect this man, his charisma, talent, energy, thoughts ... Of course, his films had a huge influence on me. I must say, it looks exactly like me (body structure, shoulders, legs, weight, etc.). Perhaps, I agree, Jim Carrey is 6'1.25-.5" (186-187 cm).
berta said on 13/May/18
i think will smith and im carrey was the same height in the 90s if i hade to guess who was taller then i think carrey could have been couple mm taller.will smith maybe could go down to 186,5 after a day and carrey could be very close to 187
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Apr/18
In Truman Show Jim Carrey look 6'2 next to 6'3 listed Noah Emmerich. But i've see enough of Emmerich look more like a legitmate 6'2.5" guy watching him in Pride and Glory with Edward Norton and Colin Farrell. Jim listing here look accurate although at first i give 6'1 3/4 perhaps a wrong perspective.
said on 29/Mar/18
Rob, who do you think is taller between Jim Carrey or Will Smith?
Both I think could be argued anywhere in 6ft 1-1.5 range, but I wouldn't go above for either.
berta said on 28/Mar/18
i thinkhis extremely bad posture have mad him to loose 1 cm by now. have gone from 187 cmto 186 by now. But really hard to tell with carrey. his posture can make him look 2 cm shorter than he is sometimes. He stand like a 85 year old person :P
Terry Marvin said on 15/Mar/18
Jim Carrey is 6'2" and weights about 180 pounds or less.

Hey Rob and everyone, so I was digging deep into Jim's old stuff, here are a few pictures I found.
Back in 1991, Jim was in a movie with his buddy Steve Oedekerk called High Strung, which also starred Thomas F. Wilson.
Here's a picture of Jim beside Steve:
Here's a picture of Steve beside Ed McMahon and Dave Coulier:
And then here's a picture with Jim, Steve and Thomas all together:
The heights seem really off, right? Do you think Steve and Thomas were wearing lifts? The last picture, Thomas could be standing on something but Steve looks to be around the same height had he been standing up straight. Perhaps Jim was kind crouching down in order for the guy behind him to be seen? But then how does explain the very first picture? It's weird, because Fred Willard is in the movie too; but he appears taller than Steve!
Here's a link to the full movie:
Any thoughts? :P
said on 24/Jan/18
Hey rob 1 last question. Would out of Carrey and Jackman would you say comes out on top in peak and current height
I think Hugh had a greater chance of being a full 6ft 2 than Carrey did...
Del Mar said on 21/Jan/18
I always thought he looked 6'2" to even 6'2.5".He has the tall look
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 16/Jan/18
Editorob, I am 90% sure Carrey has lost a quarter inch.
said on 13/Jan/18
Rob would you say Carrey would edge out Ray Romano?
They can look within same range...although I'm starting to think Carrey is looking a bit shorter the last few years. I wonder if he has now reached a stage he's lost a fraction or maybe even 1cm.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 13/Jan/18
Proportion wise, he appears identical to Paul walker. They both need 187 listings.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 4/Jan/18
5'9" is an injustice and dishonour.
JJStyles said on 3/Jan/18
I Thought he was 6'3 but i guess he shrunk to 6'1
Bobby said on 28/Dec/17
He's a lot taller than I thought he was. Always thought he was average height, like 5'9 or something.
Mister lennon said on 26/Dec/17
Strong 6'1 peak. Weak 6'2 out of bed or close.
Now he is about a solid 6'1. 186-187.
Jalen C Gilmer said on 24/Dec/17
6'2 peak height, 6'1.5 current height.
rajesh mumbaikar said on 21/Dec/17
height of jim carrey is nothing for me.......he is absolutely jenious..... the living legend.......in his performances the nature really flows..... I think that performances height is more than anybody else.He help me in depressive situation...thanks jim....God bless you.
Bego said on 20/Dec/17
Perhaps about 187-188 when he was younger, now at 55 he's no more than 186-185.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/17
186cm at worst today but he may not have lost anything. He's in fairly good shape for his age. Jeff Daniels did look taller years ago...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/17
He does look 188cm w/h Ferrell
Slim 185 said on 15/Nov/17
Needs to be added to “comedians” category and a peak and current quarter inch height loss.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/17
I think he could have been a strong 187cm in his prime
Lenad 5ft9.75in knows best said on 12/Nov/17
I'm watching bruce almighty atm. If morgan freeman was a weak 189cm then, I'll give Carrey solid 186cm like this listing.
Anonymous said on 28/Oct/17
Today, Jim Carrey is no longer young, he is 55 years old. I'm inclined to think that his height at the peak was 6'1.75 "/ 187 cm, and today 6'1.25" / 186 cm. It is worth noting that he always had a terrible posture.
berta said on 28/Oct/17
tallest possible 188 and shortest possible 186. Bad posture makes him look 186 alot of the time but standing tall he is a legit 187 guy. thats my belief. I believe there is 90 procent chanse that jim carrey was taller than arnold 30 years ago
Junior said on 20/Oct/17
He still look around 180 pounds and look a full 187cm to me. Maybe an upgrade for Jim at 6'1.75".
True Height said on 7/Oct/17
That's bull **** because if you're going around just being lazy and not looking into height you can't call morgan freeman 6'1 when he is 6'2 or higher if this is how tall jim is look at Bruce almighty movie and see how Morgan Freeman is "noticeably taller" at minimum an inch taller so if jim is this tall go correct yourself on morgan freeman will smith might not be 6'2 but close to 6'2 however morgan freeman is 6'2 for sure everything about him screams 6'2 (metaphorically speaking),
said on 3/Oct/17
There are a few photos of him with Will Smith:
mister_lennon said on 1/Oct/17
i dont think that he is taller tan will Smith. they looked the same heigth.

Here's Jim with Spike Jonze, apparently 5'7
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/17
I think 185lbs. Not as skinny as he looks
Kane said on 20/Sep/17
I met Morgan Freeman at the airport here in Tuscaloosa Alabama. He's from Mississippi. He's a solid 6'3. Jim slouched baaaad in his films. He slouched constantly next to Freeman and still looked only 1" shorter.
said on 17/Sep/17
Hey Rob, I know this is a height forum; but what do you think Jim's weight has been for some of his movies. Some roles he looks very thin; but in others, he's looking a bit more muscular.
Liar Liar - About 180 lbs
Man on the Moon - About 190 lbs
I love you Philip Morris - I believe it was about 140 lbs
Editor Rob: couldn't really offer anything as it's so long since I watched these movies.
Slim said on 11/Sep/17
Definitely taller than Will Smith.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/17
Unanimous, I think that's spot on. A solid 6ft1½ guy in the 90's if not 6ft1¾. Looked near 6ft2 on the rare occasions that he stood tall. Nowadays probably still clears 6ft1 by a fair amount.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 31/Aug/17
While 180-185 pounds is a bit skinny for somebody who is in between 6'1" and 6'2", it's interesting that he gets characterized for being very skinny at that weight. I'd expect it if a man weighed in at under 170 pounds at that height.
Unanimous said on 26/Aug/17
Both with below average posture
said on 23/Aug/17
I still can't put my finger on how he appears to edge out Rodrigo Santoro in some photos, even if Jim is wearing slightly bigger shoes. He literally has both of his legs bent here, and still edges Rodrigo out:
He looks 6'2"+ by him.
Slim183 said on 15/Aug/17
I actually think Jim could pull off 187 cms,
5'11.25 at noon. said on 10/Aug/17
Remember this guy is a sloucher like Will smith if he's leaned against a wall with his back straight to the wall I'd say he wouldn't measure less than 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/17
I think in the 90's he looked more 187-188cm than 186-187cm...really wouldn't have doubted the 6ft2 reports. His posture has just never been good. Roughly 1in shorter than Daniels.
Peterson188cm said on 7/Aug/17
Jeff Daniels (peak): 6ft2.75 189.8cm
Jim Carrey (peak): 6ft1.5 186.7cm
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 7/Aug/17
In his peak:
Out of bed: 6'2 1/4"-6'2 1/2"
Before bed: 6'1 1/4"-6'2 1/2"
Out of bed: 6'2"-6'2 1/4"
Before bed: 6'1"-6'1 1/4"

six two with footwear.
Barefeet is 186cm.
Kristi Kat said on 26/Jul/17
I just watched Dumb and Dumber and they were implying that Lloyd (Jim Carrey) was shorter than Sea Bass (Cam Neely) but I didn't see a difference and when I looked it up the Internet said Cam Neely is 6"1 and Jim Carrey is 6"2. So either Jim Carrey grew or Cam Neely shrunk or they just fudged it or something idk...
Charlie said on 30/Jun/17
I'd go as low as 6'0. Jim's costar from Mr Popper's Penguins Carla Gugino is listed as 5'5 in her IMDB profile but she comes up to Jim Carrey's eye brows assuming she has heels on.That would put her up to 5'8 with a pair of modest heeled shoes. Average heels for women.It's 4 inches from the top of Jim's head to his Eye Brows. Jim Carrey looks 6'0 tall.
Shredder said on 14/Jun/17
I just re watched Bruce Almighty after many years , If Morgan was a flat 6'2 doing filming than no way is Jim over 6'1.25 , that is the max he seemed with him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jun/17
Neely looks a solid 6ft1 guy
Lenad the 5ft9.75in stud said on 27/May/17
I'd give Jim a weak 186cm
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 6/Apr/17
I meant that Jeff Daniel's posture was worse.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 6/Apr/17
Despite the fact that Jim Carrey is known for his slouching, his posture was worse than Jeff Daniel's was in Dumb and Dumber. When both were in even posture, there appeared to be at least an inch between the two, and sometimes even more. There could even be 4 full CM between the two of them.
S.J.H said on 1/Apr/17
Carrey look near 3.25 shorter than peak jeff goldblum
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 29/Mar/17
Cam Neely was described as being 6'4" in Dumb and Dumber in the deleted scenes. He looked the same or just barely shorter than Jim Carrey did in Me, Myself and Irene though.
Shredder said on 27/Mar/17
Rob , if he really was 180 lbs in Lair Lair than what would you guess him in earlier flicks like Ace Ventura and Dumb and Dumber , batman forver?
said on 23/Mar/17
Rob , how tall is Cam Neely? He was a hockey player that played Seabass in Dumb and Dumber!
Editor Rob: in 1998 I seen him described as "6-foot-1, 218-pounds"
berta said on 17/Mar/17
a guy that with bad psoture looks in the stron g186 range but if he stands tall is more like a strong 187 guy. morgan freeman was 2 cm taller with good posture and carrey bad psoture.
Willes188 said on 9/Mar/17
mister_lennon said on 7/Mar/17
187-188. Maybe 188 out of bed. Now, maybe he has los some fraction.
HonestSlovene said on 7/Mar/17
Also Cage is about 182-183 cm maximum. Probably lost a bit of height and is no more than 182 cm flat as of today.
Charlie said on 6/Mar/17
Seriously Jim looks more like 5 ft 9. I saw a photo of Jim Carry standing beside matthew Broderick who is about 5 ft 5 and then i saw a photo of 5 ft 9 dennis Leary standing beside Matthew Broderick and Jim and Dennis had the same height next to Broerick. Jim Carry is more likely to be 5 ft 9
HonestSlovene said on 5/Mar/17
@berta I agree. 185-187 cm is his range, 186 cm probably spot on as he never looked 6'2" but definately at least 6'1" and mostly 6'1.5".
Willes188 said on 5/Mar/17
He Is 2 inches taller than Cage who is a solid 6ft guy, both wears thick heeled shoes. Carrey was likely 6'1.75-6'2 in his younger days, nowadays probably 6'1.5, and Cage was no less than 6'0.25 in his prime (midday-noon)
berta said on 6/Feb/17
yeah jim carrey had 2 inches on cage. that would make him 188. i dont think he was really that tall but not under 187. when standing tall he looks tall. cage as you say could have been couple mm over 183 but 183 is safe
said on 24/Jan/17Click Here
He does seem to have 2 on cage in most of their pictures together, but Carrey often uses thick heeled shoes, more then Cage these days believe it or not. Just look at this appearance he did on Ellen
You will often spot Carrey in does type of boots these days, but it's easy to miss them in photos
Jim Carrey 187.5cm (Prime)
Maybe 186.8-187.2cm today, i believe that he would be very similar to someone like Hugh Jackman today
Nic Cage 183.5cm (Prime)
He could be dropping a few mms under 183cm today
Willes189 said on 18/Jan/17
Solid 187cm guy in his prime!
S.J.H said on 17/Jan/17
No obligation but nicolas cage 6 feet tall was laughable if jim carrey is 6'1.5 because there is always 2" between them
said on 4/Jan/17
Jim Carrey once said that he had a small head in comparison with Jeff Daniels. What do you think his head length is, Rob?
I think he's 6'2.
Editor Rob: headman, probably a bit over 9, but big Jeff could have a 10-inch long head, it certainly isn't small.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 1/Jan/17
looked pretty tall, in yes man, 187cm is believable, but I'm more convinced he's 186cm though.
HonestSlovene said on 1/Jan/17
He has always looked about 185-186 cm, 187 cm is on the upper end of what I would guess him at.
abcd said on 27/Dec/16
185 for sure maybe 186 max 187
Arch Stanton said on 26/Dec/16
Rob can you add In the film Liar Liar, his character describes himself as "around 6'2 and 180 pounds".
ngb said on 24/Dec/16
I'd say 6'1.5 is about right.
Willes189 said on 16/Sep/16
6'1.25? I thought it still was September, my bad
Dejavu said on 15/Sep/16
There are pictures of Jim Carrey next to Clint Eastwood over 10 years ago. He is looking over 6'1 next to Clint who was probably around 6'2 during that time.
Greg said on 14/Sep/16
based on the image linked to below with Eastwood, Segal, Whoopee etc, I would have thought Jim was ballpark around the 6' mark, tall by any measure.
Justin said on 5/Sep/16
In Bruce Almighty with Morgan Freeman he looks only half a inch shorter than Freeman who's 6ft2.5 roughly so the 6ft2 for Carrey in my opinion is plausible. He's about a inch shorter than Jeff Daniels in dumb and dumber who was 6ft3. Also he's got half a inch on Colin Firth in photos I've seen and he's 6ft1.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Aug/16
His legs are spread apart so he's not actually standing his tallest while Zooey is gaining more height by standing on one foot nevermind those heels.
He could pass for 6ft2 in the 90's
S.J.H said on 8/Aug/16
Jim carrey is 6'1.25 and nicholas cage would be 5'11.25
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 22/Jul/16
On closer look, yeah he looks more 186 in that pic
said on 19/Jul/16
rob, do you reckon carrey looks like a solid 187cm guy in the top pic, assuming Deschanel is 5'5 of course
Editor Rob: nah not really much more than 6ft 1
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 14/Jul/16
Atm, I think he's a solid 186cm guy. More 187 when younger.
said on 7/Jul/16
Rob, could you add Me & Irene, Living Color and The Deadpool to that list?
Editor Rob: I have to be careful with the length of description, it is more beneficial if I can find a quote or some tidbit about height, rather than listing a few more movies.
said on 3/Jul/16
Rob, is a fraction loss possible at 54 or so you think he's held up pretty well over the years?
Editor Rob: a small loss that might make him a 186 guy yes
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 17/Jun/16
186-187cm when standing straight

deschanel is the one that is losing more height and she looks 5'4 to me.

this guy has the worst posture you can have and still looks 185-187 I dont Think he is shorter than 187 when he stand up straight
Andrea said on 5/Jun/16
187-188 is a big joke for Jim...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jun/16
I think he was 187/188cm range in the 90's.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 3/Jun/16
If he stood up straight in the top pic, I can see 187-188cm actually. I can easily buy 187cm for Carrey now
said on 3/Jun/16
Could somebody please explain to me why Jim Carrey appears to edge out Rodrigo Santoro here with worse posture (who is listed as 6'2", despite the fact that I think that a downgrade for him to 6'1 1/2" is in order as he seriously appears to be no taller than Will Smith or Gerard Butler who are both 187 CM)?
He looked similar with him in the movie as well.
Mark said on 30/May/16
I don't see more than 1 or 2 inches between Jim and Ferrell
berta said on 25/May/16
In photos with guys like Hugh Jackman and Nicolas Cage you can really see he was very Close to 6 foot 2. He never stands tall and even with that posture he never looks shorter than 185.
10% 185 ore 188
Mark said on 22/May/16
He has that lanky look. Definitely above the 6'1" range and could look near 6'2" with better posture.
Berta said on 22/May/16
he have extremely poor posture. I think he was 187,5 when he was young if he stood up straight ( maybe still is) He never look shorter than 185-86 and thats when he is hunched all the time
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 6/May/16
I agree rampage clover he can look that range at times. I personally wouldn't put him below 6'1, except maybe at night.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/May/16
Looked 187-188cm range in the 90's.
James B said on 2/May/16
According to my brother he will be reprising his role as the riddler in the future.
said on 27/Apr/16
i think this listing is spot on
in this pic his height is close to will ferrell's which is 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/16
Rob, which of these is most suitable for Carrey at peak?
S.J.H said on 8/Apr/16
Alright.. I think someone met jim carrey at 6'2 with shoes here. Probably 185ish barefoot not 6'0-6'0.5
berta said on 5/Apr/16
he looks anywhere from 185-87 but his posture cant be worse so he is probably this height. One of the best comedians ever
said on 1/Apr/16
So his claim is basically 6'2, Rob? He's a tricky guy, sometimes he can look just 6'-6'1 other times near enough the 6'1 mark...
Considering you yourself said that anywhere in 6'1-6'1.5 range is arguable for Jim, why don't you give him the mark in the middle, 6'1.25?
I personally don't think he'd measure much over 185...
Editor Rob: that's what he claimed yes. 186cm is always an arguable figure, as I say, I think you could argue anywhere over 6ft 1-1.5...I wouldn't go under 6ft 1 as an estimate.
said on 22/Mar/16
Rob, how probable is 6ft1 flat or lower for Carrey?
Editor Rob: there is a decent chance I think
Kourosh said on 23/Jan/16
@Charlie 5'10 inches for Jim is insane dont be ridiculous. No less than 6'1 for Jim.
Stan said on 21/Jan/16
Jim is a big guy always clear 6feet. In fact 6'1.5 sounds a little too much. 6'1 might be cleared
Tempest said on 18/Jan/16
About 6' flat and always been about 6' flat.
said on 3/Jan/16
Hey Rob, what do you think about the photo I posted from November? I know the angle might be a bit misleading; but what do you think about everyone's heights here?
Editor Rob: in a fair few photos he is a guy who can look just 6ft 1
charlie said on 31/Dec/15
i saw him on in living color opposite a black actor listed as 5 foot 6 inches and he looked 3 inches taller if that and he looked the same height as a black actress in a nurses outfit and high heels. Most women are 5 foo2 or 5 foot 4 and in heels they would be 5 foot 8 inches. that leaves Jim Carry at 5 foot 10 inches
charlie said on 31/Dec/15
my guess he is 5 foot 10 or 5 foot 10.5 here. he's over 50 now so it is most likely he may of shrunk a lot since then.
Dejavu said on 22/Dec/15
Probably near 6'2 peak. He had 2 inches on Nicholas cage and similar to Samuel l Jackson
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 20/Nov/15
I'd list him as 185cm or maybe 186
said on 10/Nov/15Click Here
Here's one of Jim near Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'm sure that the angle of the photo is tampering with the heights; but still a decent picture.
said on 10/Nov/15
Yeah Sam, I guess maybe Cusack's hair AND how his hat is placed on his head makes him look much taller than Jim.
Here's another one.
Sam said on 5/Nov/15
Interesting shot, I most often think Carrey would be better listed at 6'1.25" and he certainly looks no more than 6'1" range with 6'2" John Cusack.
Dejavu said on 20/Oct/15
Carrey can look 6'2 in his peak.
Rey said on 21/Sep/15
@Shamrock said on 20/Mar/15 in your group photo. Keanu Reeves looks 2 and 1/4 inches taller than Denzel Washington.
Rey said on 21/Sep/15
A weak 6' 1" or 6' 3/4 "

Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 7/Jul/15
You should add this quote from Liar Liar (where he claimed to be his height). 'About 6'2", 180 pounds, big teeth, kinda gangly'.
Sam said on 10/Jun/15
I'd suspect Pitt is wearing a small lift there with Carrey, or big cowboy boots against Carrey in converse or something...I doubt Eric Bana is much taller than Carrey and in shots with Pitt, Bana can look at least 2 inches taller than a presumably lift-less Pitt.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/15
6ft1½ is actually 186.69cm.
So you're both wrong :P
Sam said on 18/May/15
I recently had dinner with Brian Delate, the actor who played Carrey's long-lost "dad" in The Truman Show, the guy's about 6'3" now, maybe near 6'3.5" at peak but he looked close to two inches shorter than myself. From re-watching the scene Carey looked 2-2.5 inches shorter than Brian IMO, makes a case for Carrey being close to 6'1".
OneNamePlease said on 12/May/15
@Hypado 6'1.5 is 186.7cm (187cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/15
Rob, could you add him?
said on 20/Apr/15
Random question Rob but since Carrey did play him in a movie...
How tall do you think Andy Kaufman was?
[Editor Rob: could look anywhere from 6ft to near 6ft 1]
Darth Nihilus said on 7/Apr/15
Jim Carrey looked about two inches shorter than 6'3" Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber 2.
Jim Carrey: 186 cm (6'1")
Jeff Daniels: 191 cm (6'3")
Hypado said on 29/Mar/15
Jim Carrey height: 6ft 1.5in (186,6 cm)
6ft 1.5in is, in fact, 186,6 or 186,7 cm.

slightly shorter than connery and connery is probably not even a full 6'1 today.
he has a solid inch on connery standing straight
Dejavu said on 20/Feb/15
He could be 186 today. Not under 6'1 though.

@Jamie then how was nearly two inches taller than Nicolas Cage? How come he was an inch taller than Bradley Cooper as well?

He might be 6'0.5 and 6'1.5 in shoe. Definitely not over 6'0.75 max
jamie179cm said on 29/Dec/14
@Lebensdorf jim carrey would be in shoes
Lebensdorf said on 13/Dec/14
He was 6'2 next to Liam Neeson in the Dirty Harry movie (the Dead Pool). He looked no more than 2 inches shorter. That's hard to pull off next to such a big guy if you're not really 6'2.
jamie179cm said on 3/Dec/14
i don't think hes quite 6ft1 i say 183cm or 184cm

Canucker said on 4/Nov/14
David Letterman is 6'2" exactly, I've seen him in person and I'm 6'2"1/4 exactly and I'm pretty good at judging height. I'm confident Carrey is 6'2" based on seeing him on TV beside Letterman.

6'1.75 (187cm) Jim Carrey

I think Carrey is more 6ft 1-1.5 than 6ft 1.5-2.

Jeff Daniels - 6ft2½(189cm)
Jim Carrey - 6ft1¾(187cm)
177cmGuy said on 12/Oct/14
He did look 6'2 in the Truman show. My guess is anywhere in 185cm-188cm range is possible but I don't think he's even lost a full inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
I thought he could look 6ft1.5-6ft2 in his earlier stuff...

CCelebheights 188 CM says on 20/Sep/14
How tall is Sean Connery in this photo?
Jim Carrey is half an inch taller than him to maybe a fraction above, and Sean Connery strikes me as a guy who was once 6'2.25" (not 6'2.5" that has shrunk to like 6'0.25"-6'0.5"). His posture would subtract a quarter of an inch at most in this photo.
I was actually at this event. They both walked past me. Sean has definitely lost some height. JC was 6-1, and Sean was maybe a tad taller.

Probably if anything he looked 186cm with morgan freeman assuming freeman was a strong 6'2 at the time
Dejavu said on 28/Aug/14
He probably has poor posture. I think measured at his peak he is a 187cm.

anywear from 184-186cm is arguable.

Glenn probably said he was more 6'1 cause Jim would ignore him
[Editor Rob: there is some truth to that]
MrNiceGuy said on 2/Aug/14
Glenn saw him as "more 6-1" and Glenn said the same of Jake Gyllenhaal clearly overestimating by at least one inch as he did his own. (Not to slight him at all - he was invited to a $200 plus rock show by yours truly which he accepted then declined.)
James B said on 1/Aug/14
Next to Kilmer, tommy lee and ed begley jr as well he looked 6'1 lat.
I think 6'1 (185cm) is spot on for his peak and 6'0.75 today
Near Seagal 20 years ago is not looking 6'1.5
said on 31/Jul/14
Rob could you really picture this guy having almost 2 inches on Freddie prince jr? Seems really hard to picture for me. Anyway in his movies I'd say he looked 6'1 flat not 6'1.5.
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1.5 is the most I'd argue, you could say 6ft 1 is quitearguable aswell.]
Sam said on 31/Jul/14
I'd agree that this guy is a solid 6'1", 186-187 cm peaking, barely dips below the 6'1" mark.

next to listed 180 brad pitt.
Guy said on 28/Jul/14
In movies like Kick Ass 2 he looked like 183. I think he can be a 185 with a good posture
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in said on 18/Jul/14
BrianU2Guy said on 9/Jun/14
At the beginning of his career he always struck me as a tall guy and looked every inch of the 6'2".
Nowadays when I look at his more recent movies he doesn't give me the same impression, he looks slightly shorter like 6'1 max and his posture got slightly worse.
Perhaps he has lost a bit of height now, what do you think Rob?
PS: He's still an amazingly talented actor regardless
SaveUsY2J said on 7/Jun/14
Carell is closer to the camera and is tilting his head upwards to give the illusion of extra height. And yes, Randy Orton is a legit 6'4" he looks at and there's numerous trusted users, like Vegas, on this site, who've met him and can vouch for that. I kind of wish I hadn't latched on to the bait now, because looking at your comments on the Carl Weathers/Arnold Schwarzenegger pages etc. you're a massively unsubtle troll.
jamieorr4 said on 7/Jun/14
thinking about it now 183cm isn't impossible i think he can look that height
jamieorr4 said on 7/Jun/14
he doesn't look as tall as will smith imo but still jim could a be legit 61 guy i think he could as low as 184cm
said on 6/Jun/14
no, orton is not a legit 6'4", no way.
here carrey with actor and producer steve carell:Click Here
carell, close to carrey, wears glasses. Carell is listed here at 5'9"(175cm).
Carrey looks max 3 inches taller than 5'9"(175cm) steve carrell. A legit 6'1.5" would have almost towered over carrell.
Jim carrey is in the 6ft range, nothing more.
SaveUsY2J said on 5/Jun/14
@rockfellas: Orton is 6'4, and he's noticeably closer to the camera. No. 6'1.5 is not a joke, it's spot on.

Dan Marino is listed at 6'4 so not sure what he was measured at. 6'4 give or take 1/4 inch is my guess. Maybe 6'3.5 at worst?

ha hasnt shrank. Look att photos of him and jeff daniels. >There is no way jeff daniels have shrunk to under 188 at 59 he is probably still close to peak heught maybe 8 mm lost at most. and carrey looks about the same height in all photos. he never stand up straight, if he does he is not under 187
James B said on 10/May/14
Most of the time looks 6'1 flat
Lenad said on 28/Apr/14
that could be spot on seahawksfan
Lenad said on 26/Apr/14
184cm does look plausible now as he is over 50 and doesn't look quite as tall as he used to. That's the lowest id buy though
said on 21/Apr/14
any chance he could be as low as 184cm now Rob?
[Editor Rob: wouldn't guess him quite that low, just 6ft 1 is a real possibility at times.]
Lenad said on 18/Apr/14
185-186cm range now. 187 is starting to look to high now
said on 15/Apr/14
Rob at 52 could he be more 6'1 flat in 2013? His posture isn't what it used to be.
[Editor Rob: it is possible a small amount to get lost, he can look just 6ft 1 at times yeah]

Carrey is not a damn thing over a 6'1 and could be under. Sorry but this listing bad.
James B said on 7/Apr/14
I agree Carrey does not look a proper 6'1.5 compared to guys like Arnie, Chris noth and Nathan filon. All those guys would fall in the 6'1.5-6'1.75 range whereas Carrey is more like 6'1-6'1.25.

my money is on 186cm all the way
