That seems more likely, though it does suggest he often doesn't stand with the best posture which could explain him looking shorter. But Don Johnson, who is somewhere in the 5'9"-5'9.5" range does genuinely seem taller: Click Here Click Here Click Here
I've seen him appear both taller and shorter than both. Looking at the photo with Mario Lopez again, it doesn't surprise me as much since using 5'6.5" Jason Priestly as a reference, Mario looks 5'9.5" standing perfectly straight and Luke looks 5'8.5" in the pic. I'm convinced Mario is 5'8.5" max, but looking an inch taller than you are in an outdoors pic we can't see feet in doesn't surprise me. Luke looks to be leaning a bit, which may explain his 5'8.5" appearance there compared to Priestly.

Looks like he is just squeezing , I say between 5'9 and change still
RisingForce said on 18/Mar/17
Does he go up on his toes at 4:34 in the Stern video or is he squeezing a bit more out of his back?
Shredder said on 22/Dec/16
Actually the more I think about this , I had a false measurement to a guy that I read out " around 5'8 flat " , he really is only about 5'7.25 at his low.
said on 22/Dec/16
Idon't know why Mario Lopez looks 5'11 with him?
Editor Rob: with Austin Green, I can see at times Perry looking only 5ft 9. Mario can go up and down, from looking under to over 5ft 9!
Shredder said on 21/Dec/16
It is a dodgy measurement , but at least Luke had the balls to do it. I say they just called out 5 ft 10 but he really is like 5'9.25 or so. At least we know he clears 5'9
said on 20/Dec/16
Rob do you think he is just 5-9? In my opinion this is way too low for him...
Editor Rob: Barney, I think anywhere in 5ft 9-9.5 is arguable for Luke. It's a safe zone, right around the average height range.
roy said on 19/Dec/16
From where the tape measure looked they probably rounded up to 70 inches for his hair. The 5'9.5 listing is pretty accurate.
said on 19/Dec/16
So rob , would you say 5'9.5 is the most he can be?
Editor Rob: Shredder, I wouldn't go above that mark.
said on 18/Dec/16
Rob , look the Howard Stern Measurement. Start the video at 4:00 and watch from there ...
Editor Rob: to be fair, it's not going to be as reliable as a stadiometer or even like the one I did using the ruler, too much camera/hair/bendy tape problems.
Barney said on 15/Dec/16
The video with the howard sterns show is on youtube. Luke puts out his shoes and they measure him at 5-10.. rob check the video and tell me your opinion if you can clearly see the measurement
said on 1/Jun/16
174cm . nothing more
with 180cm brian austin green and 180cm Ian Ziering
with jason priestley
check the page of brian austin green here on celebheights to see the pic of rob and him together where you can see that he is around 180cm (which rob also has listed him as) . and here a pic of green next to ziering and you can see that they are pretty much the same height
I am 176cm at night and I measured one of my friends as 181cm on the stadiometer (it was afternoon when I measured him) and the height difference between my friend and me is definitely less than the difference between BAG/Ziering and Perry . Perry can not be anything over 175cm MAX at night and that is already generous from my part and very unlikely . as I said I am 176cm at night and I look taller than him so I doubt that he is only 1 cm shorter than me . I would rather put him in the 173-174cm nighttime range . my guess is 175cm out of bed and 173cm at night or something around that . so Luke Perry's height = 5'8.5 - 174cm
The shredder said on 22/Sep/15
This guy is a full 5'10 , He was clearly taller than both David Arquette and Paul Ruebens and He towered Kristy Swanson .
M said on 13/Jul/15
If Luke Perry is only 1.76m then C.Schiffer is not 1.80m (like it is listed on many sites), because she is 3-4 cm shorter then L.Perry.
hijopotamus said on 18/Jun/15
Looks like a weak 5'10" sloucher. Good lucking guy but terrible actor.
Christian said on 27/Jul/14
I worked with him for two weeks here in Sweden back in 2008 on a feature. He is 5'10'' or just about. The sound guy, (almost 2 meters) jokingly said to Luke that he thought Luke was short. Luke looked at him and stood up as straight as he could with sneakers on. I stood next to him and I could swear he was 5'10'' or just about.177-178 cm is correct.

Rob, I read that interview Howard Stern had with Luke Perry on his show, apparently it was ll/2/99 at 8.35am. Luke claimed to be 5'10" early in the interview and after Howard had asked him a number of questions about his life, he then took some calls. One caller said he did not believe Luke Perry was 5'10" and was willing to bet his car that he was shorter so Howard allegedly had KC Armstrong bring in a tape measure to confirm his height which was according to KC, 70 inches. When Howard told the caller he had lost his bet, the caller said he would leave his car outside and hung up. I don't know about you Rob but it seemed very convenient to me that he measured exactly 70 inches (5'10") supporting his claim. I find it hard to believe on that show that they would have found him to be any shorter than his claim and in any case, would they have bothered to have got him to take his shoes off for the measurement? It seemed a bit fishy to me.
[Editor Rob: you can get a rough estimate holding up a measure, but it's still got more chance of an error than a proper measurement.]
said on 13/Mar/14
Rob , look here , he looks 5'8.5 with Mamun and Mamun told me he thought 5'9.
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9 flat isn't impossible, but I've always wanted to find this Stern segment talking about him being measured!]
Viper said on 9/Aug/13
Thats an easy 2 inches Beckham has over Perry. Looks more than what 5'10 Ian Ziering ever had on him.
Viper said on 8/Aug/13
Hes struggling with 5'9
barney said on 21/Mar/13
only if Beckham is just 179-180cm..
Tom said on 19/Mar/13
Compared to Beckham, he's about 175-176cm.
barney said on 7/Mar/13
5-10 is closer to the truth...

Christian said on 31/Aug/12
Nice video with Beckham an Perry. 5'9½'' or 177 cm for Perry is spot on.
said on 13/Aug/12
didnt he look 5-10 next to beckham rob??
[Editor Rob: to me he looked about 2 inches smaller]
barney said on 11/Aug/12
more like 1.25-1.5 inches...;)
said on 10/Aug/12
rob how tall do you think he looks next to david beckham??
[Editor Rob: looks near 2 inches]

Here´s video with david beckham! Luke looks a little bit smaller Click Here
said on 16/Jan/12
rob do you think he can be just 5-9... i think its impossible...
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't guess him just 5ft 9]
said on 25/Dec/11
is there any posibillity yo meet him?177-178cm is perfect for him...
[Editor Rob: if he does a con in the UK I would, but whether he does...]
said on 23/Dec/11
rob do you think he can be 5-10 on the dot???
[Editor Rob: he looks close, but for every 5ft 10 guy there's another who is a fraction under or over.]
barney said on 1/Oct/11
there is a chance he is 5-9.5 but i really think he is 5-10..the listing is really good but i think his posture is not so good and he can look shorter sometimes...
Christian said on 25/Sep/11
barney said on 1/Sep/11
he never looked 5-9.... he always looked 177-178cm....he looked taller than sly and we all know what shoes he is wearing....
Viper said on 30/Aug/11
5-9 MAX,. LOL at 5-10
the shredder said on 29/Aug/11
I agree with the howard stern measurement ... 138 lbs ? That is low ... my cuzin is 5'11.5 and looks just as slim at 175 lbs .
barney said on 28/Aug/11
Dominic said on 20/Jul/11
Viper you said Ziering was in 5'9 range so then Perry must be 5'7 in your world yet you claim 5'8?
barney said on 14/May/11
viper he has really longs arms... look at his fingers.... he cant be 5-8 range...
barney said on 15/Mar/11
5-9.5 at the worst....
Viper said on 8/Mar/11
Better chance hes 5-8 than 5-10. There was another guy on another forum who was 5-10.5 and he said he had at least 2.5 inches on him. He was surprised how much shorter Luke was than him.
Adam said on 7/Mar/11
I have seen that episode of Howard Stern, and they did measure him barefoot and he was about 5'10. They video taped the segment for the E! Stern show; I'm sure the video footage is out there.
Viper said on 28/Feb/11
Perry isnt even a full 5-9 for lord sakes, lol.
No, Perry is well shorter than 5-10.5 Bag and 5-10 Ian.
said on 27/Feb/11
with ~5'9 justin roberts (wwe ring announcer) Click Here
i have a shot with roberts if anyone wants to see that
barney said on 27/Feb/11
viper,bag is 5-11 and ian taller than him...perry is an inch shorter than bag and 2 inches shorter than ian...you can see bh 90210 if you dont believe me...i have seen all episodes and i can judge...
Viper said on 27/Feb/11
LOL, yeah Im really downgrading their heights. No, Im actually right.
Some of you are taking crazy pills. Hes clearly shorter than 5-10.5 Green and 5-10 Ian
TheVerve180 said on 26/Feb/11
I wouldnt be suprised if he was 5ft10.5 IN THE MORNING.
TheVerve180 said on 26/Feb/11
stop downgrading celebs Viper I think he is a strong 5ft9 no more no less.
Viper said on 25/Feb/11
Brian Green is 5-10.5 Max and Ian 5-10 Max. This guy is shorter than those 2.
Viper said on 25/Feb/11
138 in weight I can agree with, but he is no 5-10. Hes struggling with 5-9.
barney said on 25/Feb/11
i agree with cristian....he is 5-10..taller than sheen and there are photos who is taller than sly
said on 25/Feb/11
My first impression was: Hm, I thought this guy was shorter. When I asked him about his height and weight he said: "I´m 5'10'' and weight 138 pounds". Luke is very slim but he is at least 5'9½''-5'9.75. Here he is with Charlie Sheen and he does look 5'10''.
This is just a weird picture. Sly is so proud of his lifts. Imagine him taken off his shoes:)
See the diffirence between Luke and Jason

Viper said on 23/Feb/11
Christian said on 23/Feb/11
Yes, I would say 5'10''.
barney said on 23/Feb/11
so he is 5-10...
Christian said on 22/Feb/11
tell-em, The ground was in my favour, Luke is at least 5-6 cm taller than me. That´s the truth.
tell-em said on 22/Feb/11
look at him with christian. luke is a weak 5'9"
barney said on 22/Feb/11
but he is 5-10... 177 at the worst...
Christian said on 21/Feb/11
Luke could be 5'10''. He looked that height standing up straight.
Viper said on 21/Feb/11
LOL, hes no 5-10. Only in his dreams. A hair under 5-9 is his real height
barney said on 19/Feb/11
he is not much shorter than BAG....until 5th season luke was an inch taller and then one inch shorter...i think 178 is fair...dont forget howard stern's show....
barney said on 18/Feb/11
he always looked 5-10 barefoot... he wasn't much shorter than brian austin green... until 4th season he was has one inch taller and then brian was one inch taller than him....i think 177-178 is fair....
Brad said on 18/Feb/11
Weak 5' 9". Looked 6' on 90210 due to the 5' 3" or less gals and Priestley.
barney said on 17/Feb/11
5-10 without shoes...taller than stalone, sheen.2 inches taller than mark walberg and one inch shorter than belushi....you can see his photos... 5-8???? LOL
Gene- said on 16/Feb/11
Stunned at how short he was- In cowboy boots- maybe he was filming 8 seconds can't recall- Greated him- almost couldn't stop laughing as we drove off- but ya maybe 5'8
barney said on 13/Feb/11
oh my god...
Viper said on 10/Feb/11
barney said on 8/Feb/11
5-10 next to 5-10 george lopez...
Gene- said on 28/Jan/11
I stood beside Luke Perry at the Calgary airport a couple years ago- Now I'm 5'11- and sports fans Luke maybe hits 5'8 in the shoes he was wearing- He's a short fella
barney said on 5/Jan/11
luke was almost as tall as brian austin green was when he was standing completely straight.... he is 1.78-179 for sure...
barney said on 1/Nov/10
he is 5feet 10 ...end of story..
Viper said on 3/Oct/07
BAG at 6-0 and Ian at 5-11 is a little too high. Also Priestley looks to be 5-6 flat.
Caesar said on 2/Oct/07
I think 5'9 is most reasonable for Perry, maybe 5'9.25 though I think trying to narrow down to quarter inches is rather difficult. Outside of the 90210 world he just doesn't stack up as a 5'10 guy. Here is what I think the cast actually is:
Jason Priestley - 5'6.5 (without the boots he always wears)
Ian Ziering - 5'11
Luke Perry - 5'9
Brian Austin Green - 6'0
said on 9/Sep/07
Luke looks 5-8 with 6-1 1/2 Brian Van Holt. Click Here
5-10 is impossible for him, and hes probably not even 5-9. Ive read quite a few sightings for him being in the 5-8 range.
val said on 9/Sep/07
god i had such a crush on him in the early days of beverly hills and im not even old! he looks to me to be about 5'10 definitly not 5'8
E. Roderick Heath
said on 5/Jun/07
Why has he been upgraded a quarter inch? Surely 5'9 and 1/2 was the upper limit on this guy!
[Editor Rob: I do flip 1/4 inches on a bunch of folk, sometimes I go back and forth.]
Brad said on 15/Dec/06
This Oct. 3 post about measured on Stern just shut the Perry section down for the count. If we could do that with Sly.....
antron said on 3/Oct/06
I actually saw that episode with Perry on Stern when his radio show was being taped for E! It was shoes off. The caller was really macho and exclaimed "There is no way he is 5'11" I saw him at a party." Perry said "I'm not I'm 5'10"." As Gary the producer came over with the tape measure, Perry takes off his shoes (which Howard commented upon), and they measure him on camera at 5'10." This is not necessarily the most accurate way in the world to measure someone, but its about as accurate as one can hope for regarding celebs.
Viper652 said on 20/Sep/06
Yeah Ian looked over 6-0 with the cast at times but just average around a regular crowd.
Lmeister said on 20/Sep/06
Luke is 5'9'' not much shorter, but for sure he isn't close to 5'10''. Ian Ziering is 5'10 - 5'11 range. Ian used to look average during the frat house scenes with other jocks...
Viper652 said on 5/Sep/06
Yep, Ian could look 6-0 or even taller on that show thoough. Everyone appeared taller on that show than usual because of the low camera angles in the way it was shot, Id say.
Danimal said on 4/Sep/06
Thing is Viper, in the early 90's when 90210 was the bomb, my sister had a 17 magazine that had Luke at 5'11" and 155 pounds and Jason at 5'9" and 150 pounds. We later saw Jason being listed at 5'7" and so, I chopped 2" off of Luke as well. David had a HUGE growth spurt in the early days of the show. He was shorter than Jason in the beginning and then over took Ian later on. I used to think Ian was 6'0" plus and looked like James Hetfield, but later found out he was only 5'10". That's how I know that David is taller.
Viper652 said on 4/Sep/06
Danimal is right, except for Priestley.
Glenn said on 3/Sep/06
I agree Viper.
Viper652 said on 3/Sep/06
For the record I think Luke is 5-9 flat at the absolute Max.
Danimal said on 3/Sep/06
Ian is 5'10", Luke is 5'8", and Jason is 5'7". David was 5'11"-6'0".
Glenn said on 3/Sep/06
I like Viper.maybe he does what you say.and yes,he is wrong on a few big names,but maybe I am too.I find him good at height for the most part.
Viper652 said on 1/May/06
5-8 to 5-9 seems about right for Luke.
Nyc Working said on 30/Apr/06
He was at the 10yr RENT anvsry. I walked by him, my best estimate is 5'9" tops.
Viper652 said on 14/Feb/06
Ian Ziering is around 5-10, and he looked taller then Perry by at least 2 inches in Beverly Hills.
nolifts81 said on 13/Feb/06
JUSTMATT- In the movie " Vacanze di Natale 95", italian actor Massimo Boldi(5'9") is a little bit shorter than Luke Perry almost 1 inch. So I think that Luke Perry is close to 5'10".
175cm16andgrowing said on 28/Jan/06
I'd say 5'10'' or 5'11''... the guy is very thin perhaps that's what makes him look taller. Next to Kristy Swanson he could look 5'10''-5'11''.
Viper652 said on 16/Jan/06
Tiffany would be about 5-8 in heels, that would put Perry struggling with 5-7 I guess.
Greg said on 16/Jan/06
5'9 and 3/4 seems high to me. I recently saw a 90210 rerun from one of the later episodes and he was shorter than tiffany thiessen (looked like she had heels on)
175cm16andgrowing said on 14/Jan/06
He's skinny and always looks taller than he is, like Chris Bale sometimes who is 6' and not 6'2''. I'd say Perry is 5'8'' or 5'9''.
JUSTMATT said on 1/Dec/05
I think Perry is more like 5.9 because I saw him near an italian actor (Massimo Boldi) who I met and this actor his max 5.8 and Perry is or the same height or 1 inch taller.
radio_man said on 17/Nov/05
I think he`s like 5`9 because Jason Priestley it`s 169Cm an luke perry standing nesxt to him seems to be like 7 or Cm taller!!!
Lmeister said on 7/Jun/05
As I reckoll it was without shoes. I am not 100% sure of this. He used to get listed 5'9'' during Beverly Hills 90210. So based on that this might have been shoes on...
Monty said on 6/Jun/05
Did they measure him with or without his shoes?
[Editor Rob: this I am unsure of...]
