Not much shorter than Samuel Jackson in Pulp Fiction. About 184cm at peek seem fair. Around this height men start getting into the tall-range
pov said on 21/Sep/19
6 foot peak. Cant believe he’s listed as 6”2 on google lol
Dmeyer said on 8/Sep/19
5'11 today 180-180,5cm , wouldnt shok me if he was 5'11,75-6ft peak
Mightyman said on 24/Aug/19
Saw him on a the jimmy fallon show. Standing next to Jimmy who is 5’11 he was atleast 1 inch to 1.5 inches shorter with big shoes on. This makes him maximum 5’10 but could even be 5’9 and a half.
Dmeyer said on 16/Aug/19
Just a legit 5'11 today 180,5cm Peak was 6'0 legit
James Grossman said on 7/Aug/19
Looks like a very weak 6' now, but above this listing in my opinion. 5'11.5" at a low. I think 5'11 5/8" would be spot on Rob, no?
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 27/Jul/19
Like He said, he was definitely around 6 footer in my eyes standing with Emma Thompson with my height range in late 1990s even before his daughter Ella was born... of course, it's safe to guess that his height as of 2019 is now 5ft 11 quarter range... plus surprised for me to know that his daughter is 5ft 9 half range tall which is considerably much taller than average girls and women with 5ft 4.5 range... his daughter Ella is definitely not taller than Nicole Kidman, Jane Lynch, Michelle Wie etc...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jun/19
No, James but there have been occasions where he’s worn lifts to look at least that tall. Obviously Fever but also he appeared on Jonathan Ross about 12 years ago and was easily more than 1in taller when they shook hands. He actually looked about 6ft3!
Jammes said on 25/May/19
So he has never been 6'2?
Editor Rob
Never was that tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/19
His IMDb still has him at 6ft2
Dmeyer said on 6/May/19
6 ft 1/8 Peak 5'11 1/8 now
Dmeyer said on 6/May/19
Already has looked max 180-1cm with Beckham
'Annonymous' said on 21/Apr/19
Hi Rob! I still think that the current Travolta height needs downgrade. As for his peak height, I don't completely rule out the 6'0.5" mark, but I think someone like Denzel Washington may have more chances in his prime to measure it than Travolta. Denzel and John met in 2017: Click Here
Denzel looks taller than Travolta, moreover John had thicker shoes than Denzel: Click Here Click Here
Now look at the photos of Travolta next to Pitbull in 2018, I really don't see a four inch difference between them: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Pitbull is bald while Travolta has thick hair. Similarly, when Travolta met 50 Cent in 2018, it is another situation in which Travolta has much denser hair: Click Here
Even with Travolta's hair he looks much shorter than 50 Cent today. Besides, when John met Lady Gaga in 2017, I know that she was wearing huge heels but even then she should not look so tall next to him if John is really 5'11.5": Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Perhaps during the measurement, Travolta is still able to beat the 5'11" by 1/4 inch, but I doubt that he will still be able to measure 1/2 inch over 5'11". Rob, I think it's time to you should give him a downgrade to 181 cm.
Editor Rob
You can see with Robert Patrick he can look like he's at most 5ft 11...it may well be 181 is the most he can measure today.

Rob do you have the link where Travolta claimed to be just over 6 feet?
Editor Rob
I don't have a link, it was on youtube at one point and I've watched it to get the exact quote as mentioned.
Timson said on 18/Dec/18
Never looked over 6-0.
Dhouser said on 17/Dec/18
184 peak imo next to Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
Peak 6 feet
berta said on 3/Nov/18
Maybe 6 foot 1/8 is closer for his peak? Travolta and Nick Nolte back to back in the 70s Would be almost identical and i think NIck could be the one who is 1/8 taller of the two back then.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Oct/18
I would believe 5'11 1/2 for Jimmy Fallon but Travolta really look a strong 1/2 inch under Jimmy. Maybe he was never over 6'0 peak and 5'11 now.
Manpreet Singh Virk said on 21/Oct/18
Travolta is currently 6'1.5
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Sep/18
If Fallon is only 5'11 then i can only see 5'10 1/2 possible fro Travolta today and possible only 6'0 peak or less.
Bradley said on 16/Aug/18

Travolta really needs downgrade! Please, Rob, look at him next to Lady Gaga and Chris Pratt: Click Here
Click Here
Click Here
Click Here
Pratt sometimes can easily go to a full 6'2" but never 6'3" as he claims. Rob, a quarter-inch upgrade for Lady Gaga after she said "five feet three and three quarters" was good for her, but Travolta seems to deserve a downgrade. Rob, have you seen enough to give him a downgrade to 181 cm?


You could just crop off the bottom 25% of that first picture and then argue for an upgrade to 6'3" for Lady Gaga. :D

Held is own w/h Vince Vaughn in Domestic Disturbance...3-4in shorter maybe? Definitely not as much 5in.
Robin said on 19/Jul/18
John Travolta is close to 5'8 when he was standing next to Lawrence Hilton Jacobs on Welcome Back Kotter you can see the Big Difference Lawrence is at 6'2
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Jun/18
Can't believe he lost this much of height. Look about an inch shorter than Jimmy Fallon. I think he was never over 6'0 during hey day. The quote is just an add up story he feels he could be taller but never was.
miko said on 20/Jun/18
Maybe a quarter inch off instead then Rob, maybe 5'11.25 and an inch loss from his prime, I think he probably just clears 5'11 but his posture and times can make him appear a weak 5'11.
MAD SAM said on 18/Jun/18
He might had peaked at 183-183.5 cm, but now he’s badly lost his height to about 179-180 cm
Gracian said on 18/Jun/18
Currently, Travolta looks a bit shorter than Jimmy Fallon: Click Here
Rob, I think that it really is time for the 181 cm list for him.
Editor Rob
I think it's arguable, but Travolta might still be a guy who when measured can hit 11.5, but standing on his own or with others sometimes looks just 5ft 11.
Mightyman said on 15/Jun/18
Just saw him on jimmy fallon where he danced side by side next to Travolta. Fallon was maybe half an inch to and inch taller.. so travolta is around 5’10 and half to 5’11.
Dmeyer said on 7/Jun/18
Could pull off still over 5'11 liké almost 6ft
Taxi Driver 101 said on 5/Jun/18
He was definitely a 6’/6’1 guy at one point. Had about 1-1.5 inches on 5’11.25 Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction. Now, he struggles to even look a weak 6 foot. Guy’s definitely lost a lot.
berta said on 24/Apr/18
mighty man i dont think he took steroids to get that body :P good diet and to loose the fat and pushups to look like that :D

@Christian
I think either Ian has a very bad understanding of the difference between 6'2 and 6' or he is just trolling....
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 18/Apr/18
@Ian555

Google almost always lie. Most of the time they list celebrities' heights based on their own claims which many of the time are exaggerated. And it's funny that Travolta never claimed anything higher than a little over 6'0", yet still got listed 6'2" by Google.
Ian555 said on 16/Apr/18
I’m pretty google doesn’t lie about celebrity heights. He was probably 6’2 at some point but he most likely shrunk recently. Plus you can kind of see he has bad posture.
Mighty man said on 3/Apr/18
Travolta was looking his best in the movie Staying Alive. Now looking at him in the years shortly after, medically I could see some tell tale signs of changes to his body shape and face. What caused it you ask? Well steroids is the answer. When shooting Staying Alive Stallone was the Director and rumour has it this is when Travolta tried steroids. He obviously stopped using them but didn’t do the proper protocol to restart his body’s natural hormones and system. He seems to have lost a lot of height over the years and his spine looks compresssd. His face and body gained a lot of weight but in a very particular way. This characteristic look is because of estrogen dominance and prolactin dominance. It means you find it almost impossible to shift the weight and get a much rounder face and hair loss. And it leads to quiet fast height loss through bone loss. Ask any medically experienced person and they will agree. Pity he didn’t have a doctor all these years who actually understood what was wrong with him. If he’d taken a prolactin blocker might have retained his youthful lean appearance. In Wild Hogs you can see he is barely taller than Tim Allen and he’s even wearing quite big healed cowboy boots giving him atleast another two inches. Without the shoes he was no more than 5’9 in that movie. Even Martin Lawrence didn’t look that short next to him. Definately was 5’11 to 6ft peak in his younger years thou. No more than 5’9 now.
Gracian said on 15/Mar/18
6'0.5" or 6'0.75" peak height is possible for him, Rob?
Editor Rob
I think John is a pretty honest guy, claiming just over 6ft like Duchovny. After seeing some of his earlier movies I think it makes sense he was a strong 6ft range.
Animus said on 15/Mar/18
Still more than an inch taller than Cuba Gooding Jr.
berta said on 9/Mar/18
tinme for 181 lisitng?
Editor Rob
On more than a few occasions Travolta has looked it, but I think straight up he's still nearer 182 if measured.
James B 170.8cm said on 6/Mar/18
Decent height
berta said on 22/Feb/18
At peak he was same excact height as nick nolte was during filming of the thin red line. NOlte was almost 60 yeasrs old and listed still at 6 foot and also claimed that. Although he probably was 1/4 over that. That means if nolte was 6 foot even at almost 60 years then travolta was 6 foot peak.
Ali183 said on 5/Feb/18
Barely looks 5'11 these days. Van damme posted a new pic of himself with travolta and norris and there isn't much difference in height between them

sumdude said on 25/Dec/17
The sad reality is, we all start shrinking after 30. 184cm peak no doubt, I agree with Rampage.
Looks around 181-182 these days, kind of hard to tell for sure. 2-2.5cm loss aint too bad for 63 years of age.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/17
Yeah a weak 184cm guy at least peak...

Weak 1.84 is fine. 6' 0.25" to me. No more, honestly.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 16/Dec/17
I think he was barely 6’0.5” in prime, like 183.8cm.
Mister lennon said on 1/Dec/17
183-184. 6.
Bego said on 29/Nov/17
183 morning, 181,5 at night. Or he was in his peak 183.5 and currently 182 perhaps.
James said on 12/Nov/17
Anything from 178-181 is out of the question. He looks 182 today at age 63. In his prime he was easily 183-184 but was slim so could easily pass for 185. And in boots was 187-188 which is probably why he is listed at 6’2” on google
Anonymous said on 11/Nov/17
i would guess his weight as 160lbs in saturday night/grease and 190-200lbs in pulp fiction.
James said on 10/Nov/17
Travolta was six foot at his peak. He was made to look taller in early films like "Grease".

I was actually an extra in a movie he did called , A Love Song For Bobby Long , which was filmed summer of 03 and although I didn't get to meet him this police officer on the set was talking about how tall John was and I said " He doesn't seem that tall to me in movies , how tall would you say he is? " ... The man replied " Sh** about 6'2 , 6'4 ".


Do you remember how tall the officer seemed?

He was around 184cm in peak not more

Nowadays 182/183cm

Hi rob, where do you think john would stadiometre in the 70's and 80's?:
A: 181
B: 182
C: 183
D: 184
E: 185
F: 186

Personally for me it's c to d range(6'0.25"-6'0.75")
Editor Rob: in C-D zone I think he could still look...don't think he lost any height by early 90's.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/17
I think the 6ft2 reports only started to come out in the 90's when he had his resurgence.
Editor Rob: in his early career he was regularly described 6ft, usually this stuff is from the actor's bio. I believe Travolta was honest back then and as we see, he said 6ft or a little over, a couple of decades later.

Here is a clipping From 1976, also I didn't realise he got into Scientology about age 21!
MisterManletMick said on 20/Sep/17
he looked very tall in saturday night fever because of the 70s lifts everyone wore back then.
berta said on 19/Sep/17
i think his current height is no taller than 181 he never looks tall anymore. peak i think he could have been over 6 foot early in the day but maybe fall down to 6 foot flat in the late afternon. in movies he could look 184-185 sometimes but thats is in the movies. he is probably honest with his claim but this is max.
alex said on 19/Sep/17
In Goddard's defence, Rob, on Imdb John Travolta is listed as 6'2.
Editor Rob: Travolta claimed 6ft or just over. There's no mystery, he only looked 6ft 2 when wearing big heels in the 70's.
Realist said on 16/Sep/17
He was like 6' with Uma Thurman and she was like 5'11.5 they were about same height in Pulp Fiction. Ving Rhames looks obviously shorter than Uma Thurman and John Travolta
Peter181cm said on 10/Sep/17
Hmmm..
I never see him more than 1.83m or 6'

He was 1.83m/6' at the best

Now he is 1.80m or 5'11
Maybe 1.81m or 5'11.25 in good days
Junior said on 28/Aug/17
I don't think John Travolta have lost 2cm now. Maybe just a few mm over 1cm. I'll vote 6'0 peak and 5'11.5" now.

181-182 cm nowadays.

Charlie said on 25/Jun/17
John Travolta was the same height as actor Tim Allen who is 5'9. John Travolta looked 5'9 in Wild Hogs. I saw him in Hairspray where he plays a Woman wear he wears a fat suit to look very huge.He also had high heels on and he was the same height as the male dancers who wore dress shoes. Travolta wore heels that would give him 3 inches more height and still he stood the same height as the male dancers and actors in the movie. He looked shorter than Christopher Walken as well. Travolta was 5'9 at most when he did Hairspray and Wild Hogs.
Paleman said on 5/Jun/17
If Joe Jonas is 5'7" then Travolta can't be any taller than the listed height. He would probably get measured 181-182 range today.

All the comment of Glenn you have to subtract 1,25 as glenn is 5ft 6,75 instead of 5'8 , hé was Travolta at 5'11 that means 5'9,75

Glenn has also measured at over 5'7" with Rob, so no need to hate.
Editor Rob: his second measurement was 5ft 7 1/16th, but with the 1/8th inch extra height the stadiometer gives, it was just about 5ft 7 flat.

Still 5'7" nonetheless Rob. I agree, he wasn't anywhere close to 5'8", but some people on this site like to trash talk him (not yourself) when he's not here to defend himself.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm only a mm or so under five-nine and even I feel bad about claiming five-nine so I don't know how Glenn who is the same amount under five-seven can claim five-eight , if your 5'6 15/16th's or 5'6 31/32nd's well then you should know your not 5'8 duh,

The "official height" of both Travolta and Samuel L Jackson is both 6'2.
In Pulp Fiction Jackson is at least 3 inches taller and Travolta is obviously wearing lifts in his shoes.
Editor Rob: sorry my friend but there is no 6ft 2 'official' height for Travolta.

His official height is 6ft and a little bit, from his own mouth ;)
6'1.5 said on 23/Mar/17
@GP if those shoes add 2 inches then that explains google's 6'2" listing

For those that found Travolta too look pretty tall in the 70's keep in mind that back then men's shoe heels were close to 2 " high
Everyone looked tall back then

If you see him next to Uma Thurman in pulp fiction when they take their shoes off and dance. She looks taller than him.

Just watched The People Vs. OJ Simpson and he looks barely taller than Cuba Gooding and Courtney Vance. David Schwimmer looks 2in taller at times!
Editor Rob: he is at an age, he will begin to look about 5ft 11 at times.
berta said on 6/Feb/17
he looked like a big guy in his first 20 years in the career. he could actually have been little over 6 feet. but today i dont think he is over 181. And thats the reason i think he could have been 6 feet flat. because at his age its hard toi loose 3 cm when you are a actor who never have done anything heavy in your whole life. could been listed height but today 181. ore 183 peak and 181 todfay. he want taller than 60 years old nick nolte and if nolte was 6 ffet in prime and little under at 6 , well that would leave travolta at littel under 6 feet peak

He's always came across as very similar in height to Samuel LOL. Jackson and Hugh Jackman as far as I'm concerned. Him & Hugh were on some show together (Saturday night live perhaps?), & were side by side with very little difference between them, perhaps an inch or 2 give or take; and with SLJ in Pulp Fiction, JT holds up very well in height with him! I'd say he still looks at least 6 feet tall.
Joe said on 26/Dec/16
I'm pretty sure he was 6ft 0.25in in the beginning of his career! I think rob listing is correct!
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Dec/16
I admire John Travolta because, although his life has been blighted with tragedy, he still holds his head up and makes films for us to enjoy! The latest of his that I bought is called 'Criminal Activities', which also stars Michael Pitt, who I'm interested in. I also have at least 6 other of his films and I would love to track down a copy of 'The Devil's Rain', from John's early career - very scary!
I know his peak height was 6ft, and I see here he was a touch over. To be 5ft11.5 is still good as it means he has only lost 3 quarters of an inch!
I wonder if that's down to the urine consumption he so famously swears by?

i think either this listing ore 6 foot. i Dont think he wS 6 FOOT HALF INCH BECAUSE TODAY HE sometimes doenst look over 180 and have a hard time see him lost that mutch height

6ft flat peak is selling him a bit short. He had to have been slighty over that.

John is tough to guess often weird shoes big heels and hair.
I'd guess 6 ft tops in 90s just looked tall around short guys.
He did look big a few times but that was likely camera work.
You cannot judge height by arm length that's a myth some short guys got long arms vice versa.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Oct/16
Anything under 6ft peak is a joke
J said on 3/Oct/16
Absolutely 6ft peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/16
184cm peak feasible. Looked a bit over 6ft generally.
Dmeyer said on 27/Sep/16
Could look 5ft11-115 even 10 years ago peak 183 10-15 years back 182 now 181 heading to 180
Johno said on 15/Sep/16
Rob you must admit that his 6'2 listings on the net are pretty outlandish and silly. I reckon he has shrunk quite a bit
Editor Rob: how much of it is shrinkage or looser posture can be hard to spot, but he looks sub 6ft anyway.

I'll get that 6ft 2 imdb listing down to 6ft 0.5 at most...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/16
He was still looking 6ft range 5 years ago...
Johno said on 13/Sep/16
Hardly looked any taller than Will Patton who Rob has been pictured with and David Beckham seemed to be taller than him to so how can people argue heights for him currently Beckham cannot even realistically reach?

Not so sure about his height in his early days but for the past 10 years he looks nothing above the 5'10-range. He seriously looks way, way, way off his 6'2 listing on the net. Such a silly listing.
Editor Rob: the guy comes out and says he's six foot, a little over...it's what he looked peak if you go back to films from 70's and 80's.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/16
Probably was about 6ft3 wearing heels in SNF…
berta said on 2/Sep/16
i remeber wheni was a kid my prant Always said that trviolta is a very tall guy like he was 190 ore something. he could look tall like 6 foot 2 in some people Eyes when he was younger. was probablly 183 on the dot and now he can look 180 but 191 if measured
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Aug/16
That's bogus...he still looked at least a strong 6ft up until about 10-15 years ago.
fufuftyffuiu said on 4/Aug/16
I would say a very strong 6'0" to weak 6'1" at his peak, started loosing height immeditely after PF in 1994.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/16
Anything below a strong 6ft peak is ridiculous…

All the comment of Glenn you have to subtract 1,25 as glenn is 5ft 6,75 instead of 5'8 , hé was Travolta at 5'11 that means 5'9,75

Glenn has also measured at over 5'7" with Rob, so no need to hate.
Editor Rob: his second measurement was 5ft 7 1/16th, but with the 1/8th inch extra height the stadiometer gives, it was just about 5ft 7 flat.

Still 5'7" nonetheless Rob. I agree, he wasn't anywhere close to 5'8", but some people on this site like to trash talk him (not yourself) when he's not here to defend himself.
Editor Rob: well to be fair, straight out of bed he will be over 5ft 7, how much I don't know.
jtm said on 2/Jul/16
then cate blanchett is under 5'4 and warren beatty under 5'10.

There s no way he is 6 feet. He was 5,10" when he did Welcome Back Kotter. All his other male cast members besides Washington were 5'4" n height. The females on the show were around 5'1". Today he is 5' 8" He looks 5' 8" which is really still very tall for a male. Average male height in Canada and USA is around 5' 5".

Where are you getting your stats from? Average height for a male in the US and Canada is NOT 5'5". It's 5'9.5"-5'10" in the US and 5'9"-5'9.5" in Canada. Also, since when is 5'8" tall for a male?
Dmeyer said on 28/Jun/16
I did see Travolta 5 times i have seen him enaugh to know hé isnt outside 5ft 11,25-6ft0,5 in like 181-184cm but not enaugh to bé précise

In Grease I actually thought Travolta could look 6ft2 range with the big hair and dance shoes

I don't think 90's Travolta was anywhere below 6ft.
Dmeyer said on 18/Jun/16
I mean in broken arrow hé looks 5 in over Slater so about 6ft1 while at the première nearer 3-3,5in taller barely near 6ft
Editor Rob: been a while since I watched the film, but yeah at event photos he doesn't look 5 inches taller.
Dmeyer said on 15/Jun/16
At the première of broken arrow hé looks considérable than in the movie hé goes from 5in on Slater to 3-3,5in ,

Cage was never more than 183cm 182,5cm is likely yet Travolta looks 1cm smaller in 90% pics they have together so 5ft 11,75 peak

Costner looked 2in taller than Liotta
Elly m said on 28/Mar/16
If Kevin Costner is 6'1and he was taller than Ray Liotta in Field Of Dreams and Ray Liotta is taller or same height as Travolta then Travolta can't be 6'. Costner seemed bout 1.05 inches taller than Liotta.

Average male height is 5'5"? I don't live there charlie but i don't believe that for an instant. John does look 5'11" nowadays but around 6' for his peak seems fine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/16
Rob, which is most likely at peak?

A) 186.5cm/184.5cm
B) 186cm/184cm
C) 185.5cm/183.5cm
D) 185cm/183cm
E) 184.5cm/182.5cm
Editor Rob: I think somewhere in C is probably what he got measured at in his 20's.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/16
5ft8 very tall for a male, lol

@charlie, there is no need to downgrade Travolta. There is no way he's under 5'11..and saying he's 5'8 is just crazy.

Lorne??? said on 19/Mar/16
He appears 181-182 on OJ, I doubt he'd measure less than a full 181cm today.

Still torn on 183.5 peak. I think his claim was honest, but maybe it was like 183.3-4 lunchtime and 183 night? It's just no less than 2 inches between him and Sam Jackson in Pulp Fiction, could appear very well 2.25-2.5, plus he's dropped 2cm by late 50's? It is questionable.
Dmeyer said on 13/Mar/16
Rob with guys like Bruce Willis hé could look equal at peak so 5 ft 11,5 maybe 11,75 with , Nicolas cage hé could also look similar so about 5 ft 11,5-6ft , i think John was 5ft 11,75 And now 5ft 11-11,25, hé was never 6ft 0-0,25 in dinner time
Aaron zamora said on 11/Mar/16
@ufc43 @editorrob Brock Ohurn is a 6'5 guy I've met him in person and he's around the same height as my friend. My friend is also 6'5 and 6'6 measured with shoes but he started claiming 6'7 once he met Brock. He says that if Brock is 6'7 so is he. Just thought of letting you guys know.
Dmeyer said on 9/Mar/16
Rob to me hé could look 5ft 11,75 peak 5ft 11,5 10 years back And 5 ft 11-11,25 today , max 2cm loss at 60 And possible just 1-1,5cm loss
Editor Rob: a little over six is I think reasonable, but then a little might be a 1/8th...
Average Joe said on 7/Mar/16
John Travolta is NOT 6'2 & never was! 6'0 even, & that's with footware! 5'11 range is more appropriate.

@rob
how tall would you put this guy brock ohurn in this picture with Travolta

Editor Rob: I don't think Brock is as tall as he claims, but Travolta looks a wee bit further away...and Jason Dohring (a bit under 6ft himself) is nearer than all of them there.

Travolta looked a very strong 6ft in Pulp Fiction...
Editor Rob: back in Blow Out I'd have guessed him roughly 6 foot, I think PF he was still around that range, but now looks shorter...
charlie said on 26/Jan/16
good grief I see his height all over showing him to be 6 foot 2 and some sites say 6 foot 1 inch,another site said and even 6.0 and now 5 foot 11.5. I saw wild hods and hes pretty well even with Tim Allen whos listed as 5 foot 10 inches. But all these years hes been listed as 6 foot 2 inches. Its impossible to shrink 2 and a half inches with his age.
Jug said on 8/Jan/16
He wore those 70s-era high heeled boots in Saturday Night Fever, so he looked pretty tall in that movie, but he was probably a strong 6 feet at his peak, yes.
Tim said on 24/Dec/15
Rob, who is taller out of Travolta and Cage both peak and current? Based on what I've read here I'm inclined to believe that Travolta was taller at his peak, and Cage is taller now.
Editor Rob: I think Cage hasn't really dropped much at all, whereas from early 90's to now Travolta definitely looks like he's dropped a bit. Cage may well measure a fraction taller than Travolta today, but a peak John I think was honest saying a little over six foot, very likely he measured around that mark.

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

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

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?

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"

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.]

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'...you can choose if it's better 6' or 6'0.25.
Today he looks around 5'11-5'11.25.

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.

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.

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.

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.

He can't be shorter than 180cm. 180cm seems about right.

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.

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

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

In all honesty, I just can't see this guy over 5'10.5". Here he is with 5'9" listed Jonathan Rhys Meyers:

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.

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.

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.

Same Height as David Beckham possibly slightly shorter, so this listing seems about right
