I have a copy of Deliverance next door and I’ve seen Jon in Anaconda and Runaway Train. Most definitely a tall specimen!

6ft2.5 peak and 6ft1.5 now.
Jtm said on 11/Mar/23
he was just a solid 6'2 peak no more no less. he looked taller in midnight cowboy for obvious reasons but if you have seen him in his other films he never really looked 6'3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/22
Always looked noticeably tall onscreen. I wouldn't entirely dismiss 6ft3 as a peak, certainly could have been a 190cm guy. Today still comfortably clearing 6ft1
Sulu2021 said on 21/May/22
Hey Rob, although 6ft 2 ½ (189.2 cm) is in the higher 90's percentile for men in society, are more than 10% of celebrity males on this site listed as this height or taller in terms of their peak height?
Editor Rob
There are more sports, wrestling stars who can take the overall percentage of 6ft 2+ men above what it might normally be.
Sonnecker said on 10/Jan/22
190 cm in his prime, probably...
He didn't lose so much with age, he's in a good health.
Ian Vector said on 19/Jul/21
Even 182 cm (my current height) is in the 85th percentile for men, so 189 cm would easily be in the top 5.
David Tang said on 15/Jul/21
rob how tall is 6'2.5 compared to most men. I think people should realize how rare it is to be this tall. he's like in the 97th percentile or so.
Editor Rob
yes, high 90's.
berta said on 25/Feb/21
peak 189,5 today 186,5
Almost 180cm guy said on 25/Feb/21
In my opinion Voight is the guy who shrunk from 190 cm to 186 cm today. Here are some of his photos alongside Whoopi Goldberg from 1986: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Of course I believe Whoopi was 5ft 4.25 and Voight was closer to 6ft 3 than 2. Rob, maybe it's time to update? In my opinion, 6ft 2.75 as peak height and 6ft 1.25 today looks quite realistic.
Hulk.23 said on 19/Aug/20
No doubt about his peak height: 6’2.5/189cm on the nose.
About his current height, well I’ve seen many pictures of him and sometimes he looks barely 6’1 but others with a good posture a little over. Considering his age and his physical appearance I think he recorded a loss of a strong inche so for his current height I will say 6’1.25/186cm.
OriginalAnon said on 9/Jul/20
188cm peak.
Flashback said on 1/May/20
186-187 cm peak and 183-184 cm now. About same height as Trump (listed 184 cm).
Nearly 180cm guy said on 23/Jan/20
I think Voight could have been full 190 cm guy. In 1986, he looked over 5 inches taller than Jack Nicholson: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Rob, how likely is 6'2.75" for his peak height?
Editor Rob
A chance of 2.75, but when somebody says 6ft 2 or 3, I think anywhere amongst that range is arguable.
Jtm said on 18/Jan/20
if trump and Voight are wearing similar footwear then Voight is 6'0.5 max now since trump's current height is 5'1 max now.
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 15/Sep/19

His peak height was solid 6ft 2 and current 2019 height is 6ft 3/4 range!!!!!

Great man. Perfectly listed.
berta said on 15/Nov/18
189-190 cm peak and 186,5 today is my guess. I think he was little closer to 6 foot3 than 6 foot 2 at peak
Gracian said on 20/May/18
Rob, peak height 6'2.75" and the current height 6'1.25" is possible for him?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/May/18
Full inch loss is reasonable at 79.
Duffer 5ft 11 said on 22/Dec/17
He could very well be down as low as 6'1" evening height today at almost 80, but he was definitely a strong 6'3" in his youth.
Canson said on 25/Nov/17
@Slim: he has said that he downgraded himself and was in therapy for it. You cannot even hold a conversation with him or a post just because he is a fanboy. He says that Conan saying he’s 6’4” but he isn’t that he is downplaying his height or that Selleck or Neeson are. Not to mention he has admitted to posting under the influence before and went off on someone while doing it. It’s just difficult to take certain people seriously. Now people call me a downgrader sometimes and attack Christian 6’5 3/8 regularly but the reason i see eye to eye with him along with Junior and SJH and Bobby3342 and some others is because they are balanced. I don’t take it at face value or upgrade others to make someone taller. That is something else that if i never see again it’d be too soon. It is frustrating when someone does it to me esp if they’re lying about their own height. But on the flip side we may see a guy who is listed below their actual (like i did with Larroquette) and say he’s taller
Anonymous said on 24/Nov/17
@Canson(slim6’1” here btw), wow that’s really confusing, I now know why you got so mad at Will and never want to hear the word “downplay” ever again.

That really messes with my head when I think about, he wishes he was shorter but wishes others were taller? I don’t know the answer tbh, that’s so ****ing strange.
😂 🤭 😆.
Canson said on 22/Nov/17
Yea Slim185. That’s true. He’s 6’2” and has issues with it which i don’t get. Then hates it but inflates people based on whether he likes them
Slim 185 said on 19/Nov/17
Honestly canson, there’s a pro and con about every height, but 6’1” and 6’2” are the favourite ones,
Canson said on 19/Nov/17
@Slim185: never got why he says that kinda stuff. Yet inflates people. But 6’2” is like the ideal height everyone wants to be that. I’m 6’4” and proud of my height although i wouldn’t want to be any taller
berta said on 12/Aug/17
i really thought he was 190,5 at his peak but that claim of 6¨2 6´3 is enough for me to believ ehe was 189 guy peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/17
Many years ago 6ft3 was considered very tall hence why a number of guys actually rounded down
Arch Stanton said on 15/Apr/17
He never looked THAT tall on screen, never looked tall enough to look awkward. Very blonde in his younger years and a strange demeanour, you can see where Jolie got that mysterious side. Viggo Mortsensen also has that sort of demeanour and look, can't quite put my finger on it but you'd guess there is a very dark side to them which the public don't know about! Jolie's kids with Brad mostly look like Jon, strong genes.
Charlie said on 13/Apr/17
In Midnight Cowboy he gave an appearance of a 6'1 guy but that was the boots and hat that gave him the extra inches.I will say Jon Voight was 5'10 when he did Midnight Cowboy. The Cowboy boots made him appear 6'1 an the hat gave an extra 2 inches.There's a scene where he was walking by a door and he was a full head shorter than the door and that's with the Cowboy Boots and hat.5'10 for Jon Voight
Charlie said on 27/Mar/17
He's not that tall. Midnight Cowboy 1969 he was standing with cowboy boots opposite 5 ft 11 John McGiver ho plays O'Daniel that crazy old man Dustin Hoffman sends Jon Voight too. There was 2.5 to 3 inch difference btween Jon Voight(Joe Buck) and John McGiver ( O'Daniel) and Jon had Cowboy boots on while John McGiver was without foot wear. I am going to say John Voight was 6 ft tall in the 1960s when he did Midnight Cowboy.
James said on 20/Feb/17
He was never above 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Feb/17
Still looked at least 6ft2 in The Manchurian Candidate w/h Liev.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/17
Looks 186-187cm today
Josh Jeffords said on 7/Jan/17
You are on point only looked 6 3 with tiny guys like the real hoff.
Peak a big 6 2 usually looked fit funny he was so insecure about his build.
Now he looks a big 6 ft back in the 90s could still pass for 6 1.
He can be tough to judge at times so I'm only 80 percent.
Fairly good actor cool voice seems a cool guy offscreen.
S.J.H said on 2/Oct/16
This is quite accurate
Andrea said on 8/Sep/16
Yeah, he looks just a bit taller than LaRose in the few scenes they have together, not even 2 inches...
I remember he had some scenes with Tony Almeida in 24 and i really struggled to see him even 6'1 tall (and that was around 7 years ago, so you'd expect some more loss by now)!
Do you think 6'0.5 is possible today or you're sure he'd manage to stand tall and measure over 6'1, even today?
Again, he really doesn't look much different than Liev on the show at times, maybe a couple of cms shorter is possible but more? Mmm...
Editor Rob
he might look 184 at times, but can he still stretch up for a 6ft 1 range measurement? It can be harder to tell sometimes with elderly gentleman.
Andrea said on 7/Sep/16
Rob, what's the lowest you can see him today? I can't say anything about his peak, but i've seen him in 24 and more recently in Ray Donovan...
As i said some months ago, i honestly would have said 6'1 at most in 24! Look at him with Mark Walhberg: Click Here
Does he really look over 6'0.5 range there? I can see how his posture isn't the best posture at times but even in Ray D he doesn't look a big 6'2 guy, to me!
At the same time, he really doesn't look much shorter than guys like Liev on the show... He's a tricky guy! He actually had a couple of scenes with an actor you met, J. LaRose, and he looked just slightly taller than him! (Btw, you have him at 5'11 but he looks more 5'10 with you)... In fact, i thought that guy was at least a big 6'!
Here is a mugshot from the last season: Click Here
Editor Rob
I think he might not measure 6ft 2 today, having a brief look I could see him look anywhere from over 6ft to 6ft 1.5. If he didn't look more than 2 inches taller than La Rose then I'd say he could be 6ft 1 max today then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/16
Rob, are you sure 6ft3 peak isn't more reasonable?

He's 77 and still looks 6ft2 minimum on Ray Donavon. Can look the same height as Liev and even taller at times!
Editor Rob
I haven't ruled out that possibility.
Dmeyer said on 12/May/16
Rob hé looks over 2in taller than cage
jajamen said on 6/May/16
Rob, why isnt Varsity Blues there. He was best known as the Arrogant coach.
charlie said on 30/Mar/16
He wore cowboy boots a lot especially in Midnight Cowboy. Thing he he looked tall and in boots he would of been 6' 5 inches. His height appeared 5 inches taller than many females. Many females at 5'3" so I will say in Midnight Cowboy he looked 5' 10"if he was flat footed. I will say he looked at most 5' 10 inches. Now probably 5' 9". Clint Eastwood has his height very high too of course never forget his traditional Footwear (Boots) Boots can give the appearance of a very tall person. Another thing He looked the same height as Burt Reynolds in Deliverance and Burt was 5 foot 10 inches.
Tony said on 8/Jan/16
I think he was around 6'4 in midnight cowboy, judging by how he towered over everyone else in new york city.
Andrea said on 1/Jan/16
He didn't look over 6'1 in 24... And i'm talking about 2009-2010!
Judd ISR said on 28/Dec/15
Grizz I've no doubt he was under 6'2.5" at peak (that is the best mark for him).
Today he might be a fraction under 6'2", but I doubt he's under 6'1.5"...
He might be as Morgan Freeman: peak at 6'2.5" and today 6'1.5-1.75"...
grizz said on 26/Dec/15
Rob,is it really possible he didn't lose a whole inch till the age of 77?
That's really impressive if true! Usually tall guys lose more height than shorter ones.
Freeman is the only tall one I can think of that didn't lose an inch with 70+years.
Editor Rob
by his 70's he has lost height, a gradual loss, he didn't seem to lose that much by around 70 though.
ebo said on 14/Nov/15
legit 6'2, slouches a lot too, i think hes a strong 6'2 still
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/15
He actually does look pretty close to Schreiber in recent pictures.
Yati said on 25/Aug/15
Probably closer to 6' 2.5" if Liv Shreiber is 6' 2.75" He stands eye-to-eye and nose-to-nose with Liv Shreiber.

190cm peak
188cm today
Judd said on 6/Apr/15
IMO he was 6'2.5" for sure at peak. Today he could be 6'1.75", but not a full 6'2" guy if not he does look taller than 6'1.25-1.5" Will Smith, while they did look same height!
joe 193cm night said on 6/Apr/15
Peak 6´2.75(190)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/15
Rob, is 6ft3 peak possible?

He really does appear it in Midnight Cowboy and Deliverance.
Editor Rob
over 6ft 2, near 6ft 3 isn't impossible, it is what he claimed, but any guy in 6ft 2.5-2.75 range would probably round up.
cole said on 20/Feb/15
@Editor Rob: Think 6'2.75 is fair for his peak since he claimed 6'3? He's 76 years old now and has looked 6'2 flat for the better part of a decade, looks like he could even be dipping a touch below 6'2 on Ray Donovan, but his posture isn't great.
Sam said on 29/Oct/14
Rob, could you add these to his credits?: Catch-22, Coming Home, The Champ, Runaway Train, Heat, Mission: Impossible and Anaconda.
Editor Rob
I also found he did claim 6ft 3 as his height.
Sam said on 14/Oct/14
Here's a book on boxing in film that states Voight was "six feet three inches tall and 190 pounds".

TJE said on 21/Jul/14
He looked at least 2 inches shorter than Liev Schreiber on Ray Donovan. If he straightened up, I could see 187 at the most.
Tony said on 28/Jun/14
I met him at the Whitaker Wellness Center in Newport Beach, CA about two years ago. He was easily 6'3" - 6"4" tall. He appears inordinately tall and 6'2" tall men don't give that impression. They appear tall, but not inordinately so.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Apr/14
That's odd he looked 6'1" range max next to Wahlberg recently.Click Here
Sam said on 10/Mar/14
Next to Liev Schreiber, he looks barely shorter recently. He's got good posture and seems to have lost barely any height.
steve said on 28/Feb/14
saw him at lax airport last month tall guy about 6ft2 was 6 ft 3 in his prime tall guy was on a flight to cancun had a pair of penny loafers on im 6 ft 2 myself

He is a strong 2 inches taller than Edward Norton.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2.75in (190cm)"

He did look near 6ft4 in Midnight Cowboy with boots maybe. The 6ft5 listings are complete bull.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Oct/13
Odd but Burt Reynolds can look only a bit shorter in Deliverance, I'd guess Reynolds was wearing lifts even on a river!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Sep/13
May have been 6ft3
Brad said on 14/Sep/13
I've stood and walked next to him and he's taller than me (this was about 5 years ago). I'm 6' 2.5"
Sam said on 10/Jul/13
Rob, would you add the 6'2"-6'3" self-description from Entertainment Weekly in an Oscar retrospective? I don't have a link on this one.

I'd really need to see it or find it

Lou Ferrigino WAS 6'4.5" OR 6'5" NOT 6'3". Voight could easily be 6'2.5".

Heres voight, in a nice body shot with the 6'3 listed lou ferrigino. As you can see voight looks 2 inches or slightly more shorter then him. I doesn't appear that voight has his cowboy boots on.

Lou ferrigino 6'3
voight 6'1 (Could be closer to 6'0.5 if lou were to stand up right)

For voight to be 6'1, his measurement would have to be taken from the very top of his hair !!! ie 5 inches.........

I see a 5'8 man with a 6'0 or so guy there.

Excellent picture mamun. This will destory the 6'0 nicholas cage myth and inturn, the 6'0 travolta myth both of these men are a 5'10 currently. Travolta could of lost some height especially at his current weight

Voight 6'0 - 6'0.5
cage 5'10-5-10.5
travola a flat 5'10

Travolta a flat 5'10"? That makes Princess Diana 5'7" absolute max and Prince Charles 5'6".

Listen shaun, are you trying to insinuate travolta is 4 inches taller then charles ?

Click Here

Are you and people like you, trying to insinutate that travolta was 3 inches taller then diana ie 6'1? And that diana was taller then charles?

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

Diana was never taller then charles, never, N-E-V-E-R and travolta never had diana by 3 inches. If anything, i believed charles edged diana, maybe upto 0.75 inches. The lowest, charles was the same height. PLEASE PEOPLE, stop this diana taller then charles nonsense. Its universal comments and beliefs like this that make very cynical. People like you shaun, probably dnt challenge the status quo and i would not trust you to give fair heights. My heights are way off from listed heights, but thats how i view it and i will continue to provide evidence.

Notice, how travolta hardly has an inch on charles, 0.5 inches most likely, how can this man be 6'0, let alone close to 6'1?

The man is and i still maintain, somewhere between 5'10.5 - 5'11.

Voight 6'1
Travolta 5'10.5 - 5'11
Charles ( Same height as diana, or a bit taller )
Diana ( Was same height as charles, if anything, shorter. What difference is there between her listed height, her perceived height and actually tape measured height is, i cannot pinpoint)

wrong johno. in picture John Voight came not more than 5'11.5 , but in full frame he is a solid 6'1 guy with his 6'1 son James Haven. at peak i doubt he is 6'2.

On closer inspection, i believe voight would be 6'1 if he were to stand straight, i will give him that,

I have seen upgraded travolta and cage's height.

Voight 6'1
travolta 5'10.5 - 5'11
cage 5'10.5 - 5'11

Note, these estimates are still lower then what is attributed to them

johno said on 19/Aug/11
I dnt think any of my links will ever work :S
johno said on 17/Aug/11
Click Here shot of keach and voight, the difference is less apparent. For some reason, by previous links did not work. Again, voight is cowboy heels. He also has a nice semi-perm. Keach has not got a shallow head under that hat. Voight is leaning over keach thus increasing his own height. Posture isn't excellent for both parties. Keach can also be 5'10.5 Keach 5'10.5 - 5'11 voight 6'0.5 - 6'0.75
johno said on 17/Aug/11
Don't it mention mamun. Like i said, a good money shot with a semi-A-lister, which are very difficult to get hold of especially when you got them off guard as opposed to fan signings where they could wear suspect footwear or try to appear taller - LOL i know i would !!! Anyway.... Keach looks deadon 5'11 with rob. I think the pictures your talking about belong to the same set as this one... Click Here is a classic example, where by from a distance one appears to be towering another man but on closer inspection and knowing the shape of keach's heads and taking into account of voights exceptionally groomed hair, a gd set of hair mind you but non the less taking that into account. The difference seems towards 2 inches, about the size of my index finger. However, voight obviously has keach in a headlock and thus, his right side is tilted upwards increasing his height whilest simultaneously reducing leach's height, pushing his neck and head slightly forwards The difference inturn, would not be 2 inches. I'm going to eliminate 6'0 as a possibility and upgrade it to a 6'0.5, quite possibly 6'0.75 although, i hate dealing with quarter fractions Leach 5'11 voight 6'0.5 - 6'0.75 i think thats fair
Vegas said on 17/Aug/11
johno did you take into account mamun being closer to the camera...

btw did you not look at that link rob posted of voight standing next to stacy keach last year (august 2010) Click Here keach and rob Click Here

yeah, if he can have 4 inches on Keach I doubt Keach has dramatically shrunk nearly 2 inches more in 4 years since I saw him...

With Mamum he look 6-0 even but Mamum is a bit closer to the camera so in reality Jon is more 6-1 than 6-0.

Looks about even 6.0 here, so I'd guess 6'1" earlier, seems about right when having watched him in Midnight Cowboy.

His hands are HUGE, btw... gigantic paws. Very good stature for a man his age.

In Midnight Cowboy in his boots probably walked around at 6'4 1/2.
Sasha said on 25/Jun/11
Next to Mamun he looks 6'0.25" (184cm). Verified by measuring coordinates of pixels. :)
Sam said on 24/Jun/11
In The Manchurian Candidate, Liev Schreiber looked a bit taller than Voight, possibly by a couple inches.
Terryman said on 24/Jun/11

avi said on 21/Jun/11
6'1.25-6'1.5 not a full 6'2 maybe he was 6'2 but lost .25 or 1/2 now.
Sam said on 21/Jun/11
He was close to 6'3" as a younger man. Look how he towers over Dustin Hoffman (admittedly not hard to do) here:
Click Here

Also read an article about the Academy Awards where Voight describes himself as "about 6'3""
sean89 said on 21/Jun/11
looks 6'1 max in this pic
Maria said on 21/Jun/11
6 ft 2.5 peak height? Not to sure about that.
Gaga said on 21/Jun/11
Dont see a 6'2 there more like 6'1 and struggling
Josh B said on 21/Jun/11
Did have a couple of inches over 6"0 Cage in National Treasure.
Vegas said on 21/Jun/11

Truthman said on 21/Jun/11
4 inches taller than Mamun with slouch, probably 5 inches standing super straight. I'd say strong 6'1.
thorterr said on 21/Jun/11
ouch i think hes even struggiling with 6ft 1 ...although yes hes classed as a tall actor
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/11
A strong 6ft3 in his day (191-192cm) he's struggling with 6ft2
William said on 29/Jan/11
One great tall actor!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/10
6"3.25(191cm) peak
6"2(188cm) now
Doug said on 20/Jun/09
Still a very tall man for his age and stands his ground next to buildings like Lundgren and Goldblum.
glenn said on 14/May/09
dolph lived near me and told me he was 6-5.and i have a pic.
Tall Guy said on 14/May/09
Dolph Lundgren said in a recent Muscle Mag that he was 6'3" in Rocky 4, that's right from Dolf's mouth.
JOSH said on 29/Apr/09
In one scene on 24 he looked an inch taller than the actor who plays larry moss and he looks over 6ft. In midnight cowboy i would guess 6ft 3 something but he was in a good inch and a bit cowboy boots.
JOSH said on 26/Apr/09
He could be 6ft 1.5 barefoot at the lowest and that would then make him 6ft 2 plus in shoes. At times he has looked real tall on screen. On 24 he looks this height. He looked almost a head taller than carlos bernard who plays tony.
adam said on 12/Apr/09
I believe 6-3 peak. Just saw a picture of him and Jeff Goldblum and the 6-4 Goldblum had about two inches on him. A recent pic which means that he is around 6-2 nowadays and very likely an inch taller peak.
Rachel said on 2/Apr/09
He's 6'2 maybe 6'3! He probably looked like a giant in his Midnight Cowboys days because Dustie was so small !!
Doug said on 20/Feb/09
Dolph Lundgren had an easy two inches on Voight in a recent pic. Some people claim Lundgren has lost height and is now barely 6'4". Voight was likely 6'3", looks 6'2" max nowadays.
MisterGuy said on 18/Feb/09
he doesnt appear much taller than Burt Reynolds in Deliverance
glenn said on 29/Nov/08
voight is or was 6-3.cage is a hair taller than 6ft.
anonymous said on 29/Nov/08
In national treasure he was taller than 6 foot nicholas cage by 2 inches. 6 foot 2 seems right.
Lenad said on 25/Nov/08
John Voight at 6 ft 4 really is a joke
Hugh said on 25/Nov/08
Actually in Midnight Cowboy he did give the impression of 6ft4. Maybe 6ft3.25 peak? the 193cm seems a bit high.
Lenad said on 7/Nov/08
In the movie Anaconda he doesnt look 6'3 more like 6'1 maybe
Hugh said on 9/Oct/08
6ft3 seems correct. 6ft4 I don't buy.
Mr. R said on 12/Aug/08
I always see Jon on Oscar night. He is between 6-0 and 6-1.
Jake Is Back said on 20/Mar/08
He looked 2" taller than Cage.
Gary said on 6/Mar/08
this is my exact height without shoes and im 6'2.25 maybe a bit taller, between that and 6'2.5 but with shoes im 6'3.25 and 5'8 comes to my lips

only if they were both barefoot i would say he's a healthy 6'2.5
Alex2 said on 13/Feb/08
Just saw National treasure 2, he certanially looks 2-3" taller than Cage,so this height is spot on.
AshnarLynx said on 8/Feb/08
Does anybody got James Haven's height? He looks very tall to me, even taller than Jon! He must be 6'4 or maybe 6'5 even.
glenn said on 7/Feb/08
it wouldnt show up on my phone either.i thought it was my phone.but it showed up on my front page.
Ras said on 7/Feb/08
Rob, the picture won't show up on my computer.

Editor Rob
you should see it now!
6footkate said on 6/Feb/08
i dont think he was ever 6'5 but 6.25 seems right
glenn said on 5/Feb/08
seemed 6-3.but you could tell he mightve been 6-4. 6-2.5 is too low.
Chris said on 4/Feb/08
He is taller than 189 cm, at least 190 or 191, about 6'3''. In National Treasure Jon Voight had Nick Cage by 2 inches. This not a god picture to judge height, by you will know what movie i am talking about. Click Here
AAAA said on 4/Feb/08
I think in the range of 6'3 to 6'4 and now still close to if not 6'3 here. Funny, I never saw him as a tall guy early on, but noticed later, especially in Mission Impossible.
Viper said on 4/Feb/08
I disagree with the 6-4 peak height. Maybe in the 6-3 range peak.
dmeyer said on 8/Jan/08
i agree with glenn 6'2.5 to 6'3 for voight
dmeyer said on 8/Jan/08
i am starding to doubt about mr r skills to judge height, he see's voight at 6'1 ,and noah while at 5'11 ,he shaves actors height by 1.5 in voight is 2.5 in over cage even thaugh ,voight is not forcing it ,noah while is consistenly 2 in on clooney so nearly 6'1
dmeyer said on 8/Jan/08
rob you should give him a peak height i think 6'4 easy since he tower cage by 3 in at 70 years old i think he is close enaugh 6'3 noe 6'4 peak 6'2.5 to 6'2.75 now
Fisher said on 1/Jan/08
He was a big dude. Now he slouches and appears marginally shorter. Possibly from age.
glenn said on 29/Dec/07
yes,6-4 peak.
Anthony said on 29/Dec/07
It's odd how in "Transformers," he looked no more than 6'1 to me. But I buy 6'3 straightened out. I saw a picture awhile back where he beat the legit 6' James Gandolfini by 3-4 inches.
Danimal said on 28/Dec/07
And this man is no spring chicken (close to 70 I think). He may very well have been a full 6'4" in Deliverance.
glenn said on 28/Dec/07
yes,thats exact.he does give a 6-4 impression.
Gago said on 28/Dec/07
I agree with you Glenn, I've met him a year ago, gives the impression of 6'4, but actually he's 6'3 or 190, no less than that.
dmeyer said on 28/Dec/07
he had 2.5 in on cage so 6'2.5
glenn said on 28/Dec/07
voight is him same night as my recent cage pic.
B-nn said on 28/Dec/07
I watch National Treasure 2, and Jon Voight is tall !!
Big size, and possibly an inch and 1/2 taller than Cage!
AshnarLynx said on 29/Nov/07
I've seen a photo of him with his children and his son looks about 2-3 inches taller than him. He must be around 6'5. Jon was also listed at this height before, but I doubt he ever was this tall. In recent films, like Rosewood, Varsity Blues, Enemy of the State etc. he looks a solid 6ft3incher.
AshnarLynx said on 28/Nov/07
I've always been in doubt about this guy. In some films (like Midnight Cowboy) he looked very tall, like 6'4 and in some films (Deliverance, Runaway Train) he doesn't look that tall, more like 6-6'1. So he's a mystery. I've seen him listed as 6'1, but most sources list him at 6'3 or 6'4. I guess your estimate might be right.
Valeri said on 5/Nov/07
he looks a strong 3 inches taller than cage in national treasure 2 traielrs,where standing on same ground..So 6'3 might even be possible or nic is 5'11.5 now.
Marcelo C. said on 5/Oct/07
In "Mission Impossible" looks not less than 6" taller than Cuise. I guess he´s 6´2", considering Cruise´s lifts.
Jackie said on 12/Sep/07
With Jane Fonda, Michael Cimino and Warren Beatty in the seventies
Click Here
Ed said on 21/Aug/07
Varsity Blues was on the other night and he looked roughly the same height as Paul Walker(6ft2) maybe a bit taller, and at least 2-3 inches taller than James Vanderbeek. In one scene though he looked to have almost 4 inches or more on Vanderbeek, who's listed at 6ft but to me looks more like 5ft10/5ft11. 6ft2.5 or a flat 6ft2 sounds right for Voight! Maybe 6ft3 in his youth, but I don't think 6ft4 by any means!
marco said on 25/Jul/07
In National Treasure, in the scene towards the end when they enter the church, he looks slightly taller than Nicolas Cage, i would say 1 and 1/2 inch, maybe 2 but not more; i do believe he was taller than 6 3 at his peak; if Cage is 6 feet he should now be around 6 2'' top.
Anthony said on 25/Feb/07
I think Voight was between 6'3 amd 6'4 at his peak.
dmeyer said on 25/Feb/07
you should give him peak height 6 ft 4
G-MANN said on 13/Jan/07
He looked so tall in Midnight Cowboy, but then he was with Dustin Hoffman most of the time, and even Tom Cruise looks tall next to him.
Anonymous said on 10/Dec/06
have you seen his boots in this clip? they're shown at the end
The dude said on 5/Nov/06

Look at this clip from Midnight cowboy. He's a head taller then anyone else when he's walking the streets of manhattan.

John said on 19/May/06
a photo of John Voigt standing next to Liam Stone (6ft) he looked at least four to five inches taller than Stone, who is not a small guy.
Height of shoes for both actors are unknown.. the photo is in the photogallery at Click Here

IF both actors are wearing the same shoes then Jon Voight is at least 6ft 5in.
sam said on 21/Apr/06
He looked shorter than Liev Schreiber in The Manchurian Candidate. Schreiber seemed to have almost 2 inches on Voight. The difference between Schreiber and Denzel Washington in that movie was similar. I believe Schreiber is about 6'3"...I think it's possible that Voight doesn't have the best posture and is starting to shrink.
piwo81 said on 3/Mar/06
Jon Voight is for me 6'4" (much above 6'2") but he's stooping because he believes such a height is unsuitable for an actor. I saw him on TV standing next to a reporter (about 6' or 6'1") and he was much taller. He was also asked how he managed to play Pope, who was much shorter, and he showed how he was stoopong and shrinking :)
CelebHeights Editor said on 11/Feb/06
1979 May Photoplay magazine described him "six foot three"
Height Tracker said on 30/Dec/05
He looked pretty tall in Anaconda. He made Owen Wilson seem like a 5'9" guy, just like I thought he was.
Gramps said on 4/Dec/05
He just looked 6'5" next to Dustin Hoffman (Midnight Cowboy)! ;-)
Peter said on 4/Dec/05
I read he was 6'5". Did he shrink?
=rod said on 17/Nov/05
"6,3" seems to be right !!
sam said on 11/Aug/05
He described himself as having stood about 6'3" in the early 1970s.
MHouillon said on 8/Jun/05
6'2.5" - 6'3" seems to be good. If you compare him to no-doubt-6'2"-188cm-Will-Smith at gettyimages, you
Mr luis said on 12/May/05
I saw him a time ago and he looked 6'2 in my eyes.
Anonymous said on 25/Apr/05
I just saw him on Entertainment Tonight and to my surprise he and Will Smith were about the same height. Originally thought he was only around the 6 ft mark since he and Burt Reynolds look about the same height in Deliverence.
Mr. R said on 14/Apr/05
I met him on Oscar night twice, and he seemed just over 6'1". We spoke for awhile. He is definitely not as tall as he is listed here.
