Belushi could do somersaults and backflips in mid air, so he was probably short. There must be a maximum height for that ability. I've never even heard of a tall acrobat.

5'7" is correct, 5'6" at worst IMO.

In Animal House John was the same height as all the females. Most females are 5 ft 2 inches in height. Thereis no way he was 5 ft 7 inches. I would have to say he was closer to 5 ft 5 inches. Belushi struck me as a short stumpy looking guy. Ill say he was 5 ft 5 inches.

He looks more of average height in the blued brothers than animal house where he looked 5'5 ijn the cafeteria scene, when he made the speech before the parade, and when he was in the scene when the horse was killed and he went to that office. He looked 5'8 in the blues brother next to 6'1 Dan akroyd. but 5'5 in animal house but I thinkots bbecause he was bending over in a lot of scenes

His official site has him at 5'6", it also lists some personal things such as his favorite movies, actors, musicians, comedians, so it must know what it's talking about. Click Here

He looked alot shorter in the movies and SNL, though... Like under 170cm.

In a biography I have about him, his wife stated that he was around 5"7.

Cathy Moriarty is listed at 5-9 which puts Belushi at 5-6 or 7 in "Neighbors"

described himself as small, constantly noted as 5'8 but may have been stretching the truth a little bit, pictures of him next to 6'1 harold ramis make him look incredibly small, RIP John.

Judging on some videos I've seen recently, I think he was between 171cm and 172cm.

In Blues Brothers he was so short compared to the 6`1" Dan Aykroyd so I personally think he is 5`6.5"

i met belushi back a hell of a long time ago. back when him and danny aykroyd were promoting and putting on shows for the upcoming release of The Blues Brothers. i got to shake belushi's hand and was lookin down at him. im a sturdy 6'5, and he was a whole heck of a lot shorter than me. i say 5 foot 8 is right on the money
