solid 184cm guy peak
184.3cm (Night) said on 23/Sep/15
Peak 183 cm - Looked taller because of big hair and big shoes.

Now- 181cm - Barely taller than guys who are weak 5'11.

2cm loss not that bad.
Judd ISR said on 21/Sep/15
Dmeyer I think he was more a strong 6' than a weak one...
Actually at the end of 70's he was tall...of course he had on thick boots, but he could have passed for a 6'2" in a couple of his first movies...
It's hard to believe he was under 183.0-183.5 cms in the Saturday night fever...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Aug/15
More like 184.5cm peak.
dmeyer said on 17/Aug/15
Peak 182.5cm 6ft now 5'11 180.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jul/15
I think Travolta has laid claim to 6ft2 in the past.
an anonymous peach said on 11/Jul/15
Why are celebs who are honest about their height still seem to get overlisted on Google?

John Travolta claimed to be a little over 6 foot, yet he's listed at 6'2".
Tobey Maguire claimed 5'8", yet he's listed at 5'9"
Nas claimed 5'8", yet he's listed at 5'9" also

Alot of WWE wrestlers are also honest, but I guess Google just go by the height they are dubbed at
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jul/15
Not convinced he's just 5ft11 flat today.
He can still pull off 6ft at times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/15
Watching Grease, he actually looks near Jeff Conway...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/15
He put on weight in the 90's. He was pretty burly in Face/Off and Broken Arrow.
Tommy said on 31/May/15
Stood face to face with him about 7 years ago. He was not as tall as I thought he would be based on his movies. Also, he was kind of lanky back then. I am about 6' even, and he stood about as tall as me. I was surprised he was as smaller build as his movie portray him. Fast forward to 2015, I think he has gained some weight.
Danimal said on 2/May/15
Looks to be a flat 5'11" today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/15
Looked 184-185cm in Broken Arrow and Face/Off.
Judd said on 29/Apr/15
as I said before, if I look at him today and I had never seen those film that he portrayed when was young, I will never believe he has ever been 6'0.25 ".
actually i can't denied that in his first movies (saturday night fever, grease, staying alive...) he did look a strong 6' or even a small fraction above it...

I think it's quite rare, but he maybe actually he has really lost 1" at 60...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Apr/15
Rob, is 5ft11 flat possibly on the cards for Travolta at this point?
Editor Rob
he certainly can appear like that, but may still be measuring half inch above that.
Dmeyer said on 8/Apr/15
Peak 6ft today 5'11" 1in loss at 60
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/15
I think he was at least 6ft0½ peak and near 6ft2 in regular shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/15

'Blow Out' is a brilliant film and one of Travolta's best, IMO.

It was his last decent performance for about a decade...

I'd argue 189cm for Jackman in Swordfish
James B said on 17/Mar/15
He looked 5'11 range compared to Hugh Jackman in Swordfish
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Feb/15
"Peak height was 6ft 0½in (184cm)"

Don't rule out 6ft0¾ either. He was definitely clearing 6ft2 in Fever in those big disco shoes.
Dingus said on 26/Feb/15
Still looks around 6'00.00"
Judd said on 25/Feb/15
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 24/Feb/15
Rob who do you think would measure taller today Alec Baldwin or Travolta?
[Editor Rob: Travolta if he was measured...I believe he has lost a bit, and his posture has become more loose near 60]

i agree! My guesses are:

Travolta's peak height: 6'0.25" (or a very strong 6'0", like Alex)
Baldwin: 5'11.5"

while, today:

Travolta: 5'11.25"
Baldwin: 5'10.75-11"

He looked exactly the same height next to Jimmy Kimmel tonight FWIW.
Judd said on 12/Feb/15
Rampage in the fever he wore a pair of boots as thick as The Lord of the rings book...he was probably 189-190 cms with shoes on
Judd said on 12/Feb/15
It's strange how a person can lose 1" at almost 60 yo.
However I have no doubt that he was 6'0.25" in 1977 while today he's in the 5'11-11.5" range!
Dmeyer said on 15/Jan/15
5'11.25 today 6'0.25 peak rob how Côme he droped near 1in évén if he was overweight at Times he was in décent shape also he didnt overdo things
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jan/15
In the opening sequence he's the tallest person on the street
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jan/15
Well, I couldn't see it LOL!! Maybe he could look 6'1" in some scenes but I didn't think he looked over it!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/15
Arch, Fever was one movie where I actually believed that he was 6ft2. Of course we don't know how tall the rest of that cast were
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/15
A photo worth adding too, not from last 15 years though LOL!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/15
Rob can you add the Look Who's Talking trilogy, Hairspray and Swordfish? Yeah LOL @ American Gangster.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/15
The odd thing is that he's in massive disco heels in Saturday Night Fever yet still doesn't really look over 6 ft!!
Mike said on 24/Dec/14
Sorry Rob i meant American Bandstand lol.
Editor Rob
this is Travolta we are talking about? Have you got a page mixed up as this is Travolta's page, bandstand???
Mike said on 24/Dec/14
Rob can you add American Gangster and Old Dogs?
Editor Rob
did he play an invisible man in American Gangster :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Dec/14
He didn't look over 6ft in Swordfish but one could argue that Hugh Jackman looked 6ft2½
miko said on 29/Nov/14
He could look 6'1+ in the 80's with his slim build and big hair.
JFM Lowell said on 28/Nov/14
I met John Travolta at a gym back in the late 1990's in Boston. He was in town filming the movie "A Civil Action". I spoke with him for a few minutes- good guy. I'm 6'3" and he looked to be 6'1"...he's taller than you think....JFM Lowell
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Oct/14
184-185cm in his 20s is possible.
Judd said on 18/Oct/14
i think 6'0.25" for peak height is fair, while today he does look in the 5'11-11.5" range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
Rob, you need to add Saturday Night Fever to the line above
Andrea said on 19/Sep/14
Rob, how much difference you see in this vid?
Click Here
It's from 2004, so he should have been "at his peak"...
Brett said on 11/Sep/14
Hi rob,

Long time :)

I met travolta a few months ago through a mutual friend... he actually not as tall as I thought he would be. I'm guessing if I'm 185-186cm, hes maybe 181ish...your current height could be plausible :)

Keep well!
Editor Rob
Travolta was I think a comfortable six footer till last decade, which he's struggle and looks 5ft 11-11.5 range a lot of time.
177cmGuy said on 19/Aug/14
Can't see Travolta less than 6'0 even today he still has a solid height
MarkyMark said on 24/Jun/14
I agree with Jake, Saturday Night Fever should be added in the description it's a classic movie !
Dmeyer said on 22/Jun/14
Travolta peak is 183cm or Max weak 184cm today somewere 5'11-11.5
mike said on 21/Jun/14
John Travolta's height is 6ft 0in (183 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 0.75in (185 cm)
at worst and best today is between 182-184 and at peak 184-186.
Dmeyer said on 21/Jun/14
I agree filmmaker peak 183/183.5 today 181cm 9 yrs ago he was Still near 183cm when i met him
mike said on 19/Jun/14
FilmMaker reply: nah don't think he's just 5ft 11.25. i agree with Rampage at worst 5ft 11.75 and at highest 6ft 0.5. today, so 6ft 0 on the nose today and maybe 6ft 0.5-.75 peak.
FilmMaker said on 18/Jun/14
to Dmeyer: I think when he was young he rarely went under 6' can choose if it's better 6' or 6'0.25.
Today he looks around 5'11-5'11.25.
mike said on 17/Jun/14
184-185 peak and maybe 186 out of bed.
Dmeyer said on 17/Jun/14
Looks a solid 2in under Tarantino today 6'0.25 peak 5'11-11,25 now thé Guy l'ost noticable
mike said on 9/Jun/14
i think 6ft 0.5 peak and 6ft flat today is better.
mike321 said on 9/Apr/14
Anything over 6 feet is laughable. Remember the elevator scene in pulp fiction where he is stood next to 6'2 samuel l jackson? He got dwarfed by a considerable amount. 180cm max.
James B said on 7/Apr/14
Shorter than Beckham rob?

Click Here
Editor Rob
doesn't look shorter, could be very close to 5ft 11 though
Holly said on 4/Apr/14
Met him in Brooklyn, 1976, when he was playing Manero in "Saturday Night Fever".
I spoke with him for few minutes. He was very slim and quite tall.
I had the impression he was as tall as me (6') maybe a little under but with the boots he gained almost 2".
Rey said on 22/Mar/14
Travolta was never 6'1". At his best, 6'.25" on his thin frame at the time made him look taller.
viktor said on 28/Feb/14
john travolta is 180 and i saw broken arrow with christian slater who is 173 or 174 cm
WhiteWolf809 1.85 6.1 said on 23/Feb/14
I think travolta was his peak height 6.0.25 because this is how he look on face off next to 6.0 183 nicolas cage
176,2Tunman said on 7/Feb/14
Possibly a little less than 1in difference between him and Uma in Pulp Fiction.Uma is around 5'11.25-11.5 so maybe a flat 6' at peak and 5'11.5 today would fit him better.

at the madame tussauds wax museum in NYC he looked 6,2" to me, does anybody agree that they made the wax figure much taller? I'm a solid 5,11" and he looked almost 10 cm taller
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/14
Rob, is a full 6ft0.5 peak possible?
Editor Rob
not impossible, I mean a strong 6ft in 20-30's
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/13
Somewhere between 6ft and 6ft1 barefoot at peak is arguable for Travolta. But, in a pair of disco shoes you're looking at least 6ft2 if not 6ft3. That's where all of those garbage listings came from I'd say.
Rude said on 11/Nov/13
He still seems like a 6 footer to me almost as tall as Bradly Cooper less than an inch difference.He's one inch shorter than Benicio Del Toro.
Silent d said on 3/Nov/13
He can't be shorter than 180cm. 180cm seems about right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/13
He actually gave a 6ft3 impression in Saturday Night Fever and Staying Alive. He was wearing substantial heels and was cast opposite short actresses though.

Solid 6ft0.5/184cm peak and about 6ft flat now, maybe a fraction under at worst.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/13
He looked 6ft1-2 in Pulp Fiction during the diner scene
Rusty said on 18/Sep/13
Im watching pulp fiction right now and he seems to have over an inch on uma thurman
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Aug/13
Travolta looked a solid 6"0.5", possibly a weak 6"1" in his youth like in Saturday Night Live, Grease, Welcome Back Kotter and Urban Cowboy. I'd be surprised if he's dropped a full inch.

"Peak height was 6ft 0.5in (184cm)"
"John Travolta's height is 6ft 0in (183cm)"

Maybe 5"11.75" but that's still pretty good for 59
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 30/Aug/13
In all honesty, I just can't see this guy over 5'10.5". Here he is with 5'9" listed Jonathan Rhys Meyers:
Click Here
Here is Travolta with 6'0.5" listed Bradley Cooper:
Click Here
Personally I don't buy Cooper at 6'0.5", and even if he is 6'0.5", that still makes Travolta 5'10.5" at the absolute MAX.
He was also shorter than 5'10.75" Nicolas Cage in Face/Off and shorter than the late 6' James Gandolfini (may he RIP).

John Travolta 5'10.5" (179cm) at the absolute MAX.
Balrog said on 24/Aug/13
Rob you think he lost 2cm when he's not even 60? Maybe he was 6'0" flat at peak.
Editor Rob
I believe his 'little over' six foot claim, and now a little under, some guys will shift height by 50's
Len said on 1/Aug/13
6'0" is what he looks. Am surprised he tries to claim 6'2" elsewhere.
Dmeyer said on 17/Jul/13
Met him 8 years ago he was aleast 5'11.5 maybe 6'0 probably l'ost height from 8 years ago , was similar to m'y height but i had cm more shoe
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jul/13
5ft11 is rubbish for Travolta even today. That's Uma Thurman and Bruce Willis territory. He was taller than both of them back in 1994 and recently. He's 5ft11.75(182cm) at worst today.

Probably a solid 6ft0.5(184cm) as a young man. At that height you can get guessed at 6ft2.
GUK said on 29/Jun/13
Same Height as David Beckham possibly slightly shorter, so this listing seems about right
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/13
I'm almost certain that a fan once asked him
how tall he was and he stated 6"2".
Brah said on 26/Jun/13
HLN is a liar. In the DiCaprio board, you said you met Travolta and he is 5'8". Now, you say here "your friend" met him.
HLN said on 5/Jun/13
PFFFT! My close friend does work on the homes for all the celebs, I'm not going to say what kind of work so theres no risk of harm coming to him because this is such a huge fib, the guy must sue everyone who tells the truth. My friend is solid 5'10'' and Travolta was shorter with lifts. I'm also a solid 5'10" and until now I thought I was stretching it saying 5'11'', turns out in hollywood height I'm 6'5''. thanks for the laugh.
teej said on 4/Jun/13
Legit 6ft in his early days, dont know about now
talker said on 20/May/13
i've stood next to John in the early 80's in NYC,i'm 6'1" and he was a little shorter than me,i'd say 6' back then.
Lenad said on 11/Apr/13
I think this listing is pretty accurate
Lenad said on 29/Mar/13
One thing he really doesnt look is the 6'2 he gets listed at
duhdocduh said on 15/Mar/13
i've hugged the guy. lovely dude but i once was 6'[ before gravity and 6 decades] and he was notably shorter.
not that there's anything wrong with that
Dmeyer said on 9/Feb/13
Almost 60 2cm loss is possible
Balrog said on 29/Jan/13
I agree with Dmeyer. Lately Travolta looks 5'11'' range. At peak I could buy 6 feet.
Sasha said on 26/Jan/13
In Pulp Fiction barefoot dance scene John looked 1.5"-2" inches taller than Uma Thurman, who is at least 5'11". So John could be estimated as 6'0.5"-6'1" that time.
matt789 said on 16/Jan/13
peak i wuld say was 6ft0.25 and nowadays more around 5ft11.5
Hew said on 28/Dec/12
Looks a slight bit under 6ft nowadays. Def 6'0.5/6'0.75 at peak.
dmeyer said on 19/Dec/12
i think there is more of a chance denzel is near 6 ft today like 5 ft 11.75 but john is no way over 5 ft 11.5
bodwaya said on 19/Dec/12
in get shorty he was only 3 inches shorter then delridey who is 6 foot 4 6 foot 1 sounds right plus he was 2 inches taller then 5 foot 11 willis.lastly only 1 inch shorter then 6 foot 2 willism hurt . 6 foot 1 on the dot
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/12
Identical to Denzel Washington.
Both 6ft0.5(184cm) peak and 6ft flat today
DanMan said on 14/Dec/12

More like 6'1".

fost said on 5/Dec/12
The owner of the shop I frequent here in FL, lives near him and has met he and his family numerous times. She said he is not nearly as tall as he appears on screen. Maybe he doesn't wear his lifts when he hangs out locally.
Dmeyer said on 25/Nov/12
Rob looking at him near jackman lately and 184-185 cooper 175 meyers hé dosnt look a mm taller than 5'11.5 today With a chance of 181cm at peak 183cm not 6'0.25 to me 1-2cm loss by near 60 is possible
Editor Rob
I think peak he did have chance of little over 6 foot and maybe today he is just 5ft 11.5, although sometimes some men can muster an extra little bit when it comes to measuring
Arch Stanton said on 11/Nov/12
Dmeyer says on 3/Sep/12
Some site say at his heaviest. 250-300 pounds i think more 240-245 and sometimes go down to 215

Agreed, you've got a good sense for heights and weights Dmeyer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Oct/12
I doubt he's under 6ft...even today.
Silent d said on 21/Oct/12
In pulp fiction which is an awesome movie 6cm shorter than samnuel l jackson and an inch and a bit taller than 180cm uma. 182cm now.
Dmeyer said on 21/Oct/12
I saw him enaught to say hé is under 6'1 and over 5'11 somwere 5'11.75-6'0.5 in 8 years ago
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/12
Hes probably wears lifts, even if he does claim to be just a little over 6ft. Those pictures from the 70s, 80s and 90s would fool anyone oblivious to this site into thinking that Travolta was 6ft2. I believed it at first. I'd also never bat an eyelid when I heard Bruce Willis being described as 6ft1
The Exorcist said on 6/Oct/12
He looks tall, but not too tall. 6'0" seems about right for him.
Silent d said on 1/Oct/12
I watched domestic disturbance the other night and he looked 6 foot 1. In savages he looks about the 6 foot mark but i think 182cm is right on the money now. The actors in the savages are sorta tall except for salma hayek. Taylor kitsch and aaron johnson are 180cm, blake lively 173cm and benicio del toro about 189cm. I remembered he was taller than kitsch and johnson.
rkc_cat said on 24/Sep/12
Just saw him on TV at an award show, next to Benicio del Toro. He consistantly looked almost 3" shorter than him, so not much over 5'11" flat for Travolta nowadays. Definitely 180-181 cm in my opinion.
Dmeyer said on 3/Sep/12

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/12
I doubt he's less than 6ft even today. Has held is own with 6ft2 range guys in the past.
And yeah looked taller than an in-heels Lady Diana. Probably 6ft1+ in shoes.
Ben said on 1/Sep/12
John danced with 5'10'' Princess Di who worn with high heels yet john was still taller. John must've been 6 feet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/12
The dancing shoes he wore in Saturday Night Fever definitely
boosted him closer to 6ft3. Likewise in Grease and Urban Cowboy
he looked fairly tall. Could easily have been mistaken as 6ft2.

But obviously he's always been a little shy of 6ft1 mark. He is
looking a shorter nowadays I'll admit.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/12
Didn't look a lot shorter than Gene Hackman
in Get Shorty. If Hackman was 188cm still in
1995 than Travolta looked 185-186cm.
Danimal said on 8/Aug/12
bodwaya says on 7/Aug/12
in lonely hearts he had 1 inch or 6 foot James Gandolfini so hes gott be 6 foot

James Gandolfini is close to 6'1". If Travolta was taller than him, then Travolta was packing something in his shoes for sure.

in the movie wild hogs he looked barley taller then william h macy and he's 5 foot 9 is it possibly that he is only 5 foot 10.5? and how much do u think he weighs?
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m said on 13/Jun/12
No, he appeared 184 cm max beside Vince Vaughn.
Connor said on 12/Jun/12
John to me could still look maybe 183cm he could possibly be 182.5cm flat without shoes on what do you think Rob?
Editor Rob
today he could have dipped a fraction shy of 6ft. Maybe with poor stance/posture he sometimes can look a bit more shorter than he is though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jun/12
Looked 6ft1/6ft2 beside
Vince Vaughn in Domestic Disturbance (2001)

Good to be back!

6'6" barefoot says on 8/Jun/12
I'm 17 and me and my father saw Travolta and his wife and dinner in L.A., very nice guy by the way. After dinner we took a picture and when I stood up he was surprised to see how tall I was compared to him. He said himself that he was 6'1" at age 17. I was substanitally taller than him by more than half a foot.

You claim to be the height of a lampost at a legit 6 ft 6 yet you were surprised to be much taller than him? LOL, at a barefoot 6 ft 6 you should expect to way taller than most men you ever meet.. Travolta looks a solid 6'.

SIlent d said on 24/Jan/12
182cm. I can't see uma shorter than 180cm. 5 foot 10 is ridiculous. Like people claiming nicholas cage is 5 foot 10. Funny. Travolta owned robin williams in old dogs. There is more like 5 to 6 inches difference.

He's around 5'9.5" (177cm), 5'10" (178cm) MAX.
maio said on 6/Jan/12
Peak: 5 ft 11.75 in/182 cm
Today: 5 ft 11.25 in/181 cm

Never been a solid six feet. In 'Pulp Fiction' he wasn't much shorter than Samuel L. Jackson; however i think Samuel never been 6 ft 2.5 in, how rob said, but 6 ft 1.75 in/187 cm (shorter than M. Freeman), and John wore heels.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 3/Jan/12
I believe johno is correct, Travolta is clearly shorter than Uma Thurman barefoot. In addition he looks around the same height as Tim Allen in Mike's picture. Let's be realistic, he can't be more than 178cm. In fact I would not exclude the possibility of 176cm barefoot for Travolta. 6 foot claims for him are ridiculous, 177cm would be a fair listing.
Mike said on 23/Dec/11
A pic with 5'10.5 Tim Allen, looks to be the same height.

I think he's still at least a flat 6 foot today, but most likely scraped 6'1" up until the mid 2000's.

Uma thurman 5'11

She is tall. She is taller than ethan hawke who people say is 178cm. In face off, pretty much the same size with 6 foot nicholas cage. In swordfish a little bit shorter than 6 foot 2 hugh jackman. 182cm.
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
i think travolta and uma both at 5'10.75 , less chance of possible 5'11
LAN Jiao said on 28/Oct/11
atually travolta with a brush up hair and wore a elevator shoe and claim 6'0 most people may not know he is atually 5'11 top barefoot. uma thurman is no way 5'11.5 she claim near 5'11 which in cm like 179.5cm , so she might be 5'10.75 or maybe right on 5'11 she mostly looks it.
johno said on 22/Oct/11

In alot of pictures, both parties wear shoes, so you cannot decide how much footwear advantage respective parties are gaining. You can get a better understanding of the maximum error on how much height one party has over another if at least one party is barefoot.

Clearly here, uma thurman is barefoot and travolta is not. Uma thurman is under 6'0. Anywhere between 5'11 - 5'11.5. Both parties are losing a slight amount of height in the above picture. Now tell me, how can travolta be anywhere near 6'0 or above? He has hardly any height on thurman when she is barefooted !!!

Uma thurman 5'11 - 5'11.5
Travolta 5'10.5 - 5'11
LAN Jiao said on 21/Oct/11
Dejavu, you were right on travolta. he look a 5'11 top now. at peak saturday night fever he had on a heel dancing shoe looks 6'2, i asumme he is 5'11.5 peak now 1,80m

No more than a strong 6 ft at peak, now hes probably 180-181! Looked no more than 4-5 cms taller tham johnatan rhys meyers in from paris with love!


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, paris with love...........One of the most controversial, cra**iest films i have ever seen, starring the most unlikely 6'2 i have ever seen to. This guy lists himself at 6'2, surely one of the outlandish claims by a celebrity out there. I think he might mean his waist line width, Anyway..........

This guy was shorter then a 5'11 - 5'11.5 uma thurman when she was barefoot and he was in shoes !!! He also doesn't seen taller then nicolas cage whose a much better actor by the way. This guy is under 5'11 and for the sake of putting a number...

5'10.5 and every division between it and 5'11
Editor Rob
the thing is though Travolta doesn't list himself at 6ft 2.

his quote is right on this page, 6 foot or a little over, that's from his own mouth.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Aug/11
I still think Travolta is 6ft legit and can look shorter nowadays because he's heavier and has bad posture. No peak height needed, Rob. He's always been this tall. 6ft0.5(184cm) is still possible
ricky said on 7/Aug/11
6ft for sure may be 6ft.5

In Saturday Night Fever he may have stood 6ft3 in those heels...
6ft0.5(184cm) I think is spot on
miko said on 5/Jul/11
No doubt Travolta could pass for 6"2 in the 70's. Slim frame, slicked back hair and great posture.

In reality he was a hair over 6"0, and today below that. He's shrunk.

At about what age do people start losing height? Just curious?
Editor Rob
women are more likely to lose a little bit more height than men over time.

By 50 on average you might have lost a fraction, by 60 maybe nearly an inch, by 70 nearly 2 inches on average for women.

Rob, if you say he's now a weak 6', any chance you'll change the current listing to 182 cm or?

maybe in a while
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/May/11
I thought he looked close to 6"2 like 186-187cm in Pulp Fiction with Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson. But obviously the reality is he's never been anything close to it
marko said on 16/May/11
6 ft tall today,almost 6 ft 1 peak
Gus said on 14/May/11
Hes not 6'2,watched Get Shorty,hes 0.75 inches shorter than Gene Hackman,who was 6'2 at peak,though in 1995 he would have been 64/65 yrs old,and probably more 186/187cm than his peak 188cm. Travoltas peak was 6'0.5",6ft flat now,maybe even 5'11.75

Read on another site that he's apparently 6'2" and approx 250lb! he's fairly broad but 6'0" and 210 at a max i reckon.
miko said on 2/May/11
Rob, do you think Travolta may have gone below 6"0 today?

He is closing in on 60 and in recent photos he appears to be giving off a shorter impression.

yes he is now what I'd say is weak 6ft

No way there is only 2" difference between him and James Cameron in that photo... I see at least 3 inches guys. By the way in Pulp Fiction he looked absolutely NOT more there 1 inch shorter than strong 6'2" Sam L. Jackson, hmmm...
Lenad said on 26/Apr/11
If Travolta is 6'2 then Cameron must be 6ft4
Misha said on 23/Apr/11
Gus, the precision of your late 70s to current height on Travolta tallies with my own estimates. He has definitely lost some height - I rememder being very surprised that he wasn't really much shorter than Muuhammad Ali at Ali's last fight (with Trevor Berbick - a dismal affair). He's still a strong six feet - the photo just below with James Cameron shows exactly two inches' difference,
and Travolta is slouching slightly.

Also, he has put on a lot of weight, which dramatically shortens a person in terms of a quick visual impression. I've read the opposite in the comments, but that is simply wrong - thinness conveys height, bulkiness does not. If you want to look taller without altering your heel height, drop a few pounds.
Gus said on 20/Apr/11
I dont get why most sites,claim Travolta is 6'2,Ive seen a good few of his films,and its almost obvious that hes not 6'2. I saw him with the cast of Kotter the other day,and if I didnt know them,or who he was Id say he was 5'10 tops,because he was being towered by the black fella,and was only 2 inches taller than all three of the women,and to be honest I have never seen any evidance to warrant him being 6'2,its crazy some of the same sites say Clint Eastwood was 6'2-which is laughable to think that John and Clint would be the same height. When you watch Staying alive,when hes alone with the women in it,I can understand people thinking he was 6'2,but then you see him in the street full of people and hes a distinctly average height.
late 70s time-
out of bed-185cm

Id say hes 182cm now
Johan Cruyff said on 16/Apr/11
Travolta's heights are:

Morning (out of bed)= 6'0.5" (1.84 m)
After 1,5-3 hrs= 6' (1.83 m)
After 5-10 hrs= 5'11.75" (1.82 m)

Today, i think he's around 5'11.25" (1.81 m)-5'11.5" (1.82 m)! He's a good 0.5-0.75 inche taller than Uma Thurman, who's 5'11.5" out of bed and 5'10.75" at night!

Jackson I'm confident was closer to 6"3 than 6"2 in his prime...191cm out of bed
Gus said on 20/Jan/11
well in pulp fiction lets say Samuel L Jackson was 6"2,6"2.25 with good the age 0f 45,6"2.5 peak,190 out of bed.In that film he stood with a normal posture,where he would have been 187/188cm,a tad off his straight back height,while Travolta seemed to have good posture for the whole film,in the lift seen and once more I think there looks a 2 ich difference,thats probably when Jackson is at his 6"2.5 height,but Id say on average,Jacksons posture was at about 6"1.75 in that film(187cm)which looked about 2cm taller than Travolta,who was very straight. With this in mind Id say Travolta was 6"0.75 out of bed(185cm)6"0.5 during the day and 6"0.25/6` at night. Looked to be 6"0.5 in Pulp fiction.
Lenad said on 20/Jan/11
Could've passed for 6'1 in his prime. The 6'2 and 6'3 claims are big fat joke

Gus said on 4/Jan/11
Who the hell says Travolta was 6"3 ?That would make him a strong 6"5 in night fever platforms-yer right. 184cm peak,185cm out of bed. Making him a sensible 6"2.5 in platforms.
Spence said on 21/Dec/10
I don't think he was ever much over 6 maybe a hair

In lifts he was 6'2. he'd need to borrow robert downeys elevators to be 6'3 though.
Gus said on 12/Dec/10
Travolta was 184cm,id say for sure,6"2 ? naa,I think especially when you see his modern day films he looks about 6.05,not 6.2. Also when you see him standing with his fellow actors and you look at the heights they always seem to suggest a correlation between there height and 6.o5-184cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/10
A solid 185cm out of bed, possibly 186cm

I'm unsure if he's 6ft 0.5in or 6ft 0.75in

6"0.5-6"0.75 is closer.

Looks same height if not a little taller than Nicholas Cage in Face/Off

Evening: 6'0 (183cm)

Just before the release of From Paris With Love, Rhys-Meyers commented on his height. He said "I'm 5' 10" and 155 lbs and he's [Travolta] about 6' 1" and 200 lbs". Well as we all know Rhys-Meyers is in actuality 5' 9" so that would make Travolta 6' even.

He was 191 cm in Face/off (He had big footwear). Could he really been 8 cm shorter 13 years later? I don't think so. He is clearly taller than 183 cm, probably 186 cm. His real height without footwear was 187 cm in Face/off. He has shrunk 1 cm.

Travolta's height is a mystery. In Pulp Fiction and Get Shorty he genuinely looks 6ft2 or close yet other times he looks 6ft. 5ft11 is ridiculous. For me he's at least 6ft and probably not under 6ft0.5.
Lenad said on 15/Jun/09
At peak 70 dollars on a strong 6'0 and 30 dollars on a weak 6'1. He was never 6ft2 barefoot though. I wouldnt rule out the possibilty of 186cm morning height but anything higher is a bit extreme. Mister Lennon thinks 184cm max probably

What about the commercial for that one with John and Denzel Washington, where John's character hi-jacks a bus? Travolta looks at least and inch and a half next to Denzel, who's 6 ft 0.25 in.

I've seen Pulp Fiction again, and you're right, Samuel is clearly taller than him, maybe I didn't realise. Forget my last comment.
Karl van Karlsen said on 31/May/09
I watched Pulp Fiction. And in the scene where both stand next to each other in the elevator Samuel L Jackson looks at least 2 inches taller. Travolta is never ever more than 184cm. I think Jackson had never ever been taller than 6'2.5 (189-190) so Travolta MUST be under 184. My guess is 183cm maybe only 182cm.

I think the height displayed here is pretty accurate.

Luis said on 27/Apr/09
This is strange. In Pulp Fiction Samuel L. Jackson looks only 2 cms more than him, and he's 189 cm. And both of them wear the same shoes. But at the same time, he also looks the same height as Bruce Willis (182 cm). It's sure that Samuel L. Jackson is 189 cm? Maybe Willis and Travolta wore special lifts in their footwear.
Curtis C. said on 24/Apr/09
John and Nicolas Cage appeared to be about the same height- 6'0.5" in Face/Off. Altough John appeared to be at least an inch taller than Nicolas.
LG69 said on 20/Apr/09
John looks at most 2.5" taller than Glen, so I'd say 5'10 1/2" here.
Hugh 190cm said on 16/Apr/09
I'm beginning to think 6ft2 is closer to the truth because there is a picture on Bruce Willis's page where Travolta looks 2 inches taller than Uma Thurman. Willis himself also looks 1-1.5 inches taller than Uma.
Hugh 190cm said on 9/Apr/09
