He's just under 6'0. I know Salma Hayek is like 5'3/4 in super high heels but he towered her in them so he's about 5'11.75.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/23
Overall there’s at least an inch between him and Schwimmer
berta said on 17/Feb/23
i cant see how this guy is 181 and schwimmer 185,5. I think its more like 182 on a good day vs 184,5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/23
Edges Willis and Baldwin. Average guess is closer, IMO while Schwimmer I think has gotta be close to 6ft1.
Ben - 186cm said on 24/Dec/22
He isn’t any more than this listing. He is at least an inch, probably slightly more shorter than 6’0.5 Schwimmer, and looks maybe 2 inches taller than strong 5’9 Le Blanc. Not sure why so many people think he’s closer to 6 feet.
Crab said on 16/Nov/22
Just noticed that you've got him listed exactly between Matt LaBlanc and David Schwimmer, 1.75 inches off both of them. Personally he always looked closer to Schwimmer to me, at times they looked basically the same height. I'd believe 5'11.5 for him, and 6'0.5 for Schwimmer.
James G. said on 13/Apr/22
Rob - after all of these comments and the average guess, do you think 5’11.5” is too much? Maybe 5’11 3/8” at the least?
Editor Rob
11.25 to 11.5 might be the likeliest range
viper said on 27/Mar/22
ViperPilot said on 8/Sep/21
A weak 5’11”. Tousled hair makes him seem taller.

Yep. A weak 5-11 is probably right since he can look only 5-10 range
FloJ said on 26/Mar/22
He is a tall guy but his dad is easily 3-4 inches taller than him.
Alexy111 said on 8/Dec/21
The whole 9 yards he looks a little taller than Willis! Unsure if footwear and camera angle etc. Around 6ft
berta said on 26/Oct/21
littel over 1 inch shorter than davi shwimmer. 6 foot 3/4 vs 5`11 1/2 could sometimes look the full 182. Edged out bruce willis.

I don't know about recently, but on friends he was pretty darn close to David Schwimmer's height

Really looks more like a solid 182cm guy than 181cm
Jasper W Rose said on 20/Jul/21
One hundred percent a 5'11 1/2 min guy
viper said on 14/Jul/21
If that were true Ian Ziering would need a massive upgrade

He's 5-11
slim 6'1 said on 13/Jul/21
I disagree viper, he’s near 6’1 first thing in the morning
viper said on 29/Jun/21
Certainly nothing more than what Rob has him at
Slim 6'1.5 said on 28/Jun/21
Nearer 6ft than 5’11
viper said on 25/Jun/21
Nah, he really doesn't look taller than 5-11. This is a decent listing.

He can look shorter.

Like I said he looked shorter than 5-11 listed Ian Ziering on 90210

And I don't even think Ian is 5-11
Slim 6'1.5 said on 24/Jun/21
Flat 5’11 is lowballing him, 182cm at least

Not that much shorter than David schwimmer
Slim 6'1.5 said on 15/Jun/21
184 out of bed IMO
viper said on 7/Jun/21
5-11 is the most I can see for him
Jawilder said on 5/Jun/21
5’11.5” seems like the safe bet. Looks a little over an inch shorter than David Schwimmer who seems to be close enough to 6’1. Also looked about an inch shorter than Sampras in a photo together.
viper said on 3/Jun/21
He's still at his peak.

6-0 range morning? No way

Like I said, he looked shorter than Ian Ziering in a 90210 episode
viper said on 2/Jun/21
He looked a bit shorter than Ian Ziering on 90210 and I don't know how

If anything it should be the other way around
Joe Pavel said on 2/Jun/21
Hey, Rob! Matthew was always my favorite Friend and I find him a bit tricky to guess, don't know why. What do you think were his regular morning and evening height in his peak? Thanks.
Editor Rob
He could be 6ft range out of bed
BT said on 11/Jan/21
Think he might qualify for a current/peak listing soon Rob?

He started appearing somewhat shorter in mid 40's. It's possible his posture has just gotten increasingly worse over the years as his lifestyle wasn't the greatest, fluctuating drastically in weight and going in and out of rehab. He definitely could look near 182 cm on Friends if Schwimmer is/was in fact a solid 185, and compared to guest stars like Adam Goldberg and Tate Donovan. He didn't look any shorter than Willis either compared to Schwimmer.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Dec/20
I am pretty sure that Schwimmer is over listed while Perry is listed as a low at 181cm. Sometimes their gap look as small as 3cm than 1.75".
Mike Sui said on 5/Oct/20
he's 180 or 179cm. because 185cm obama towered over him.

Wishing Matthew Perry a Very Happy 51st Birthday. I just found 6ft for him and, having read some of his comments, I've decided to go for 5ft11.75. πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

Tall Sam said on 26/Jul/20
This is one guy listed near 5'11" that actually looks near six feet, unlike many others who claim six foot but are really 5'11". I think on Friends he could look a weak six foot a lot, maybe an inch under David Schwimmer and 2 inches (if not more) if standing tall near Matt Le Blanc.
Jkiller said on 4/Jul/20
5'11.75 (182cm) is accurate
Angus said on 23/May/20
6 ft flat 4 inches on chris farley
Vexacus said on 5/May/20
I think he looked more 5'11.5 in Friends .
Rob , if a guy is listed here with 181 cm he could be 182.9 cm (6ft) in some point of the day?
Ollie said on 28/Apr/20
Consistently looks 6’0 in Friends compared to 6’1 david schwimmer
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/19
Looks 6ft more often than 5ft11 I think
Shumlum said on 30/Sep/19
At peak he was maybe 6'0.5. Now 5'11.75 or almost 6'0 in my opinion. He definitely has the body frame of a 6 footer.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Jun/19
Strong 181cm than Jimmy Kimmel for sure. Perry could be holding a strong 5'11 3/8 at times can look .5".

Honestly, by looking through every pics and footages of him, He looks every single bit of 5’11.5”. Nothing under it!
U gave someone like Patrick Wilson or Jack Lowden an Upgrade, Why Hesitate to give Matt the 182?

What do u say, Rob, Give Old Matt the 182cm?
Editor Rob
Either 5ft 11.25 or 11.5, I think I have still felt he is 181 range, but never rule out 11.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/19
Rob, could we give Matt the 5ft11Β½?

He easily looked no shorter than Bruce Willis and Alec Baldwin on Friends...and can look as little as an 1in shorter than Schwimmer. Clearly taller than Brad Pitt aswell
Editor Rob
5ft 11.5 would be my limit, I can see 5ft 11.25-.5 as a possible range for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Feb/19

He a looked a flat 5'11 with Zach Braff on Scrubs.
edge said on 10/Sep/18
He's always looked just under 6 feet so 5'11.5 I think is spot on. The weight on the other hand, that fat face neeed's to stop lying to the mirror and admit that scale is saying at least 190, not 160 Lol.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/May/18
At most 5'11.5" but not as tall as Josh Lucas who look alot like 182ish.

With perry he looks an honest 5ft 8, although at times in the past he might have seemed under that.

No shorter then this that's for sure. Wouldn't be surprised if he eeked past 6'0 first thing in the morning.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/17
Rob, will you give him an extra fraction?

181cm looks a tad low
Editor Rob
well 5ft 11 and 1/2 is never impossible for him, he's stuck on 181 for a few years.
JJAK said on 31/Oct/17
Personally I'm gonna say 5 11. 5 to 5 11 .75 seems a weak 6 ft no less.
If he is this height than all friends height need an update.
Often he looks about an inch under schwimmer other times 1.5.
Same with matt he is sometimes towered and other times he looks 5 10. "he obviously is not has build of a nonathletic 5 8 guy"
The same happens with kudrow but she often has footwear advantage.
Peter181cm said on 10/Sep/17
1.81m at the top, sound good for him ;)

Aswin said on 13/Aug/17
Hi Rob, I have seen several episodes of friends. There are many instances where it is clearly evident that Matthew Perry is only an inch less taller than 6 foot 1 David Swimmer.

I think Matthew Perry is somewhere between a strong 5,11.5 to week 6-footer. He is clearly 2 inches taller than Matt Leblanc who is no less than 5 foot 9.5
DaveMills said on 5/Aug/17
Back in Real World:
1. Le Blanc :- 5'9.5 (176.5 cm)
2. Perry :- 5'11.5 may be 5'11.75 (182 cm)
3. Schwimmer :- 6'1 (185.5 cm)

5'11.5" but i think hes 175 pounds

Through the eyes of a self-proclaimed 5ft8 New Yorker

Matt LeBlanc: 5ft11(180.3cm)
Matthew Perry: 6ft1Β½(186.7cm)
David Schwimmer: 6ft2Β½(189.2cm)
Sam said on 9/Jun/17
I really think he needs an upgrade to 5'11.5/182. Having watched each Friends episode multiple times, there's no way he is near 2 inches smaller than Schwimmer, who is a legitimate 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jun/17
I don't see how Alec Baldwin an Bruce Willis both get that when Perry was clearly taller than both of them when they guest starred...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jun/17
Yeah this needs to be 5ft11Β½
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jun/17
Balrog I agree with those...There was definitely a good inch between Perry and Schwimmer but maybe not quite a full 2in.

Watching Friends all those years I thought Schwimmer was 6ft2, Perry 6ft1 and LeBlanc 5ft11!
Animus said on 14/May/17
The fact that he was 160 pounds as a young man suggests that he is closer to 5ft11 than 6ft. If you are six-foot and skinny, but with a normal body frame, you will normally not go below 165 pounds. At least that has been the case with me and most actors with matching body types and published information on weight.
berta said on 26/Apr/17
i think he lies somwehere in the range from 181,7-182,3 in the afternon
Balrog said on 8/Apr/17

In Whole Nine Yards he looked shorter than Willis in almost every scene. This listing looks about right to me.
King of the hill 91 said on 25/Dec/16
182cm rampage strong 5.11.5
Johan said on 10/Dec/16
lol 6'1" ? Watch friends when he stands next to an aged Tom Selleck. He has a footwear advantage as Tom was in slippers and he still got towered.

He is a typical 5'11" guy who people nowadays think is 6'-6'1".
Animus said on 9/Dec/16
He is definitely not 6ft. That much is evident from seeing him next to Adam Goldberg on Friends.

He varies between looking 1" and 2" taller than Matt Le Blanc, but that's primarily due to the variability in Le Blanc's footwear.

If you are a strong 5ft11, as I believe Perry is, you can easily look close to 6ft with the right frame and under the right circumstances. I think this listing is spot on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/16
6ft1 I dunno about. Although he was skinny so maybe he could give that illusion, just like Schwimmer looking 6ft2. I think a slight upgrade is arguable. Looks closer to 6ft than 5ft11 and Schwimmer may be just under 6ft1 at worst
Goose said on 5/Dec/16
Either he shrunk or listing needs an upgrade. Seen in person in. 2000 and was 6'1'ish. No way he was 5'11 then..
Animus said on 30/Nov/16

Matt Le Blanc sometimes wore thicker shoes. In fact Le Blanc could look about the same as Elle Macpherson wearing flats, when he wore boots. Also, Matthew Perry's posture isn't the greatest. I think it's safe to say that Perry clears 5ft11.
matt said on 24/Nov/16
hey rob he looks just 1inch taller besides matt le blanc
S.J.H said on 7/Nov/16
Perry could be a guy 183.5cm/181.5cm so 5'11.5 and david schwimmer 186.5cm/184.5cm 6'0.75 because i hardly sees over 3cm on them only the time when schwimmer have more foowear like boots he look about 1.5" edging perry
Bing Bang Bong said on 12/Oct/16
Was legitimately convinced this guy was at least 182 cm, but after seeing him next to Schwimmer in Season 7 Episode 9, he looked a good two inches shorter than him.
Dmeyer said on 15/Sep/16
Its very hard to see him under 182cm with Willis And schwimmer
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Sep/16
D would be the lowest I'd argue with C being a possibility. Sometimes I get more of a B impression from him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/16
Rob, which one is most likely?

A) 185cm/183cm
B) 184.5cm/182.5cm
C) 184cm/182cm
D) 183.5cm/181.5cm
E) 183cm/181cm
Editor Rob
I could see a possible D range
Giorgi said on 1/Sep/16
Rob, how would you explain this photo? I don't think Perry is wearing that thicker footwear because the difference is pretty considerable.

Can't be just 181 cm. His collegue and friend Dave Schwimmer is clearly 185 cm , 185,4 as listed here, with a better back posture.
Matthew is a very probably 182-183 cm at sight.
Drew said on 15/May/16
Just saw Perry on a season 1 episode of Beverly Hills 90210. There was a scene in the school hallway he had with Ian Ziering and Ian had at least half an inch on Perry.

Matthew's aged probably because of his drug use over the years

A weak 6ft is closer than a strong 5ft11. Just over 1in shorter than Schwimmer (6ft1)

he looked slighly taller than Bruce willis and about 1 inch shorter than Schwimmer. This dude is more a proper 182 guy

He is border line 6 foot now due to ageing. He would of been 6 foot or in centimetres 183cm

I've never ruled out the chance of that
177-178 cm guy said on 22/Feb/16
Bump him up Rob. He barley looked shorter than David Schwimmer on Friends. He's at least 5'11.5-5'11.75" range

Looks hardly any shorter than Swimmer in friends
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/15
Perry is not under 5ft11Β½-6ft. He looked at least a strong 6ft beside Bruce Willis and Alec Baldwin (both listed 182cm peak). That also makes David Schwimmer an easy 6ft1.
mr.rashid said on 28/Jun/15

U can have a closer look at this! Click Here
Its from this News article about his weight gain Click Here
Im sure he claimed that height or something?
What do u think of this Rob?
Editor Rob
that would be the kind of height he claims then!
Sam said on 22/Jun/15
I don't see how he could be 5'11.25" if Willis was 5'11.5"...Perry seemed to have had a edge on him and Perry can look maybe within an inch of a 6'1" guy like David Schwimmer. My wife is watching old Friends episodes and just saw Schwimmer in a scene with Fred Willard and they look pretty close, Willard might have an edge but Schwimmer does not look less than 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jun/15
182cm minimum.
Alex said on 24/Mar/15
I watched friends episodes many times. Perry is always marginally shorter than Schwimmer. I think Schwimmer is a super legit 6'1, so maybe Perry is around 181/182, you can see Chandler is shorter than Ross but just barely.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/15
He actually looked at least 6ft if Willis and Baldwin were 182cm
CDS said on 3/Mar/15
"dom says on 27/Feb/15
if Schwimmer is 185, Perry is 182. There is an inch max at most between them."

I remembered there being more than an inch between Schwimmer and Perry on TV's "Friends", however, if I'm mistaken, then I honestly think Schwimmer is the one who needs downgraded...

Just saw an episode of Perry's new series, "The Odd Couple" last night, and 6'2.5" Geoff Stults looked at least 4" (maybe even 4.5-5"??) taller than him. I was watching that last night thinking of Matthew in the 6' area (in shoes), so thinking Geoff must be like 6'5"- WTF?? FTR, here are my estimates for the stars of TV's "Friends":

David Schwimmer- 6'1"
Matthew Perry- 5'11" (although after last night's "Odd Couple", may actually downgrade him to 5'10.5"-??)
Matt Leblanc- 5'8.5-5'9" (hearing his height may have been thrown off due to some boot wearing that may make him appear more 5'10"-ish-??)
CDS said on 24/Feb/15
In case it hasn't already, thought it should be pointed out that a 21-year old barefoot Matthew Perry, on an episode of TV's "Who's The Boss", appeared the same height as star Tony Danza, who had shoes on. I'm guessing Tony is no more than 5'10" in shoes-?? I'll still give Perry a good 5'11".
Hypado said on 22/Feb/15
Matthew Perry height: 5ft 11.5in (182 cm)

Cold be a strong 181 and a weak 182.
Triplescrew said on 15/Jan/15
Perry has terrible posture 80% of the time on Friends.

He looks 183cm to me if we're going with close to 6'1" for Schwimmer. Whatever Schwimmer is, Perry looks about half an inch shorter than him on average.
Dmeyer said on 13/Jan/15
IN the 9 yards willis was at peak at Perry is easily as tall if not taller
THEguy said on 13/Jan/15
FA - Bruce Willis is definitely not a "5'11.5 guy." 5'10.5 at best but realistically, Willis is either a flat 5'10 or 5'10.25. Perry's 5'11.25 calls seems about right, he's a full inch taller than Willis in Whole 9 Yards.
cole said on 4/Dec/14
Has he lost any height after his drug and alcohol problems? I haven't seen him much after 'Friends', but I think he looked a solid 182 cm on that - not much more than 3 cm shorter than Schwimmer, taller than Willis, Pitt and Alec Baldwin, and at least 5 cm taller than Matt LeBlanc at the time.
Clay said on 4/Dec/14
Agreed Rampage, Chandler was pushing 6 feet.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/14
Rob can you update with a photo and "American actor best known for playing Chandler Bing on Friends and for roles in TV series such as Go On, Mr. Sunshine and The West Wing. In film he has appeared in The Whole Nine Yards, 17 Again, Fools Rush In and The Ron Clark Story." He never looked a full 6 ft to me Click Here And I'm convinced Schwimmer is more 6'0.5 seeing him with Tom Selleck, David Walliams, Simon Pegg and Gabby Reece. 5'11.5 is possible but I support Rob's 5'11.25 listing personally. If Willis and Baldwin were smaller, likely they've lost a bit of height now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
This guy is easily on his way to 6ft. He was taller than both Alec Baldwin and Bruce Willis when they guest starred.

funny how in Friends episode Matthew Perry was described as 5'9''? Matt Leblanc claimed 5'10.5'' but is 5'9''-5'10''
Borris said on 18/Apr/14
Definitely 5 '11', I was slightly taller than him when I met him and I'm 6ft dead!
John said on 16/Apr/14
He nothing more than 6'1 atleast!
kevin said on 5/Mar/14
i too think he needs an upgrade... 182cm is my guess on perry
Balrog said on 5/Mar/14
If Perry is 181cm that kills any chance of Willis being over 5'11" at peak since Perry was taller than him in Friends. Willis was 45 at that time.

I could buy a 182cm listing for Perry.
dmeyer said on 4/Jan/14
Rob This can can realy taller than 181cm more 182/183cm can look as tall as schwimmer at times and beats Willis at pic 5'11.5 at the very least

"Matthew Perry height: 5ft 11.75in (182cm)"

Edged out Bruce Willis who was 182cm himself
DMEYER said on 26/Dec/13
to me he never looks under 5 ft 11.5-11.75 he even pulls off 6 ft near schwimmer
WAT said on 23/Dec/13
This guy is 183cm a weak 6 foot, maybe dips below but 182 is the lowest I could say
ThomasKouns said on 22/Dec/13
I didn't notice his footwear when in saw him in LA but it wasn't a hip area particularly and he sure looked at least 6'1 to me.

This might sound ridiculous but if Bruce Willis was 5ft11.5/182cm when he guest starred on Friends, Perry looked 183-184cm and Schwimmer looked 186-187cm! Most sites have them at 6ft1 and 6ft2.
Next to Willis they both appeared an inch of those heights."

Good thing then that Willis is 5'11" and perry 5'11.5", Schwimmer max 6'1"

Taller than Willis in late 40s and barely shorter than schwimmer 5'11.5-11.75 is likelyer than 5'11-11.25

Editor Rob
he can look it at times yes
CL said on 7/Aug/13
Was walking down Robertson (in LA) and almost ran into Matthew coming out of a store. I always thought he was a 6' guy, but he was spot on with my height...just over 5'10". We were both wearing similar footwear (low profile trendy sneakers).

He is a couple of inches taller than john cho in go on. He was a little shorter than ross in friends. Quite tall next to joey. 181cm is about right.
Anon said on 18/Jun/13
@ ThomasKouns. Did he look 6'1 in shoes? Because he isn't 6'1 barefoot. I don't think Matthew Perry is 5'11.25 either ..even though he sometimes looks it. Most of the time he looks more like 6'0 or 5'11.75. This listing needs an upgrade
ThomasKouns said on 24/May/13
I saw him coming out of a Starbucks in LA in 2001 and what struck me was how tall he was. I'm 5'10 and he was a minimum 6'1. Seemed like a nice guy BTW as he held open the door for a pregnant woman.
Christian said on 24/May/13
Yes, Matthew Pery is taller than Willis and I would say Matthew is 5.11.5-5.11.75.

This is nonsense about Perry being less than 6th! I bumped into Perry coming out of the Ritz in London about 8 ago and he had at least an inch on me. I was measured for the Marines at 6ft + bare footed and standing bolt upright, and was measured recently for a medical at exactly the same height!

Well dmeyer, you are absolutely not short. You're 181-182cm, right? That's a decent height, above average and a shade under the starting point of "tall".
Perry, being in the same height range and having lean frame gives at times impression of being tall.

Rob G is right. David schwimmer is 6'1(185cms) and Matthew perry is 5'11.5(182cms). So i.e an inch so a normal formal shoe would make him equalent to David's height.

Perry claims 6'1". Usually guys who claim 6'1" like Perry, DiCaprio and Willis are legit 5'11.5"-6' guys as they probably are in shoes.
Doug said on 22/Jun/09
Closer to 6' than 5'11". See the Banned avert on youtube where they are barefoot. He's quite tall legit. I'd say 5'11.75". A weak 6', strong 5'11" is how he looks.

Perry is 5'11.5"
LeBlanc is 5'9" (5'8.5" - maybe)
Schwimmer is 6'0.5" (or a weak 6'1")
Here is an interesting video:

Well I think he is still at his peak height, since he is about forty now and probably haven't lost any height. As I said I can see him at 5'11.5".
jf said on 12/May/09
Matt Perry's peak could have been 6' or a tad above it. He still stands solidly, just North of 5'11". He towers over Salma Hayek in Fools Rush In, which isn't saying too much I guess.

If you guys think it is impossible that Schwimmer could beat Perry by 1.5" - 2", get out your measuring tape and see how small that difference actually is, and then come back and tell me it's unfathomable.

It is unfathomable because Schwimmer is way under Jason Lee's height of 6ft1.5 by a couple of inches, go to Schwimmers page and check the picture from kissing a fool film I posted, so he's not 2 inches taller than Perry as that would make Schwimmer 6ft1.25 but he's much smaller than Jason Lee at 6ft1.5 and we have seen Schwimmer measure up at only 6ft2 with his shoes on. Schwimmer is no more than 6ft 0.5" tops but wears big shoes at times to increase his height over his co-stars. I've posted his big footwear on the Schwimmer page. Perry on the other hand doesn't wear big footwear.

Hugh said on 31/Dec/08
But really this site can scare the hell out of some people. Like before I discovered this site I thought Perry was at least 6ft1, Schwimmer at least 6ft2 and LeBlanc at least 5ft10. I thought all these celebrities were at least the height that they're normally listed at. It blew my mind to find out that Willis was less than 6ft likewise with every other 5ft11.5 listed celebrity who always gets listed as taller. Travolta at 6ft blew my mind aswell.
steph said on 24/Dec/08
matt, you read too much into stuff..
Matt said on 3/Dec/08
The problem with this site is that we consistently underestimate heights. My informal observation suggests that 6'2" is considered "tall" on this site, and that is the benchmark that people (perhaps subconsciously) judge celebs by.

A guy like Perry is not actually that tall. He was undoubtedly boosted by the fact that he was taller than four out of his five castmates on Friends. But really, how many times did Perry actually have to square up to a genuine tallie on that show? The answer is: not very often.

But why is it that he struggles to beat Andre Agassi in a flat surface face-off? Why is it that he is a shade under 5'11" Bradley Whitford (even when Perry is military-straight and Whitford is lax)? Why is it that he didn't look significantly taller than 5'10" Richard Schiff during his West Wing stint?

Perry's great advantage is his body frame. He might have put on weight over the years, but the guy has narrow shoulders and narrow hips. When he lost all that weight in the second or third season of Friends, he looked like a ghost. He was a walking hat rack. Of course he was going to look tall.

At 5'10.5", with a favourable body frame and a cast he could mostly dominate, he was always going to give off the impression he was taller than he actually is. But as soon as you stick the guy among his peers, he just looks like an average joe.

If you guys think it is impossible that Schwimmer could beat Perry by 1.5" - 2", get out your measuring tape and see how small that difference actually is, and then come back and tell me it's unfathomable.
Hugh said on 3/Dec/08

That's right. He was the about the same height as Agassi when both standing staight and Agassi and Stallone in another picture they were the same height too. So maybe he could go down 1cm 1/4 inch as Agassi is 180cm
Anonymous said on 28/Nov/08
I agree with Ian, 5'11" fits Perry. Schiwmmer is 6'0" and wears bigger shoes than Perry. And Lebluck I say must be 5'9",even in lifts he is still inch under Perry
Ian said on 17/Oct/08
I've seen Perry wears shoes and suit and be the same height as schwimmer. He over 5ft10 but under 6ft. I would the 5ft11.25 is right. Schwimmer just a touch taller at 5ft11.75-6ft.
Johnny 81 said on 12/Oct/08

I can't believe that, at all! I've seen him before and I don't think he's any taller than 5'9" barefoot. MAYBE 5'10" in shoes. All the guys on "Friends" are pretty short, though. Aisha Tyler was on there, and she's six foot.

Perry always looked to me like 5'11" guy, but I wouldn't rule out he's 5'10"ish
Viper said on 24/Sep/08
Perry at 6-0 is a joke. Hugh you have to be a troll at this point. Perry looked 1-2 inches shorter than 5-11 Andre Agassi on here. 5-11 is probably wrong for him but it isnt as ridiculous as saying hes 6-0. I think hes around 5-10.
anonymous said on 23/Sep/08
ian, what "massive grips" are you talking about?
Hugh said on 23/Sep/08
I think Perry is at least 6ft and Ross is 6ft1.5-6ft2.
Rob G said on 16/Sep/08
I agree with Ian and Imiliano, Schmwimmer is no 6'2" for sure,6'1" for him is doubtful, most probably 6'0" maybe a tad more like 0,5" max, to me Perry always looked like 5'11" guy. He used to be very slim during first seasons of Friends so the illusion he's taller. Btw Perry and Willis are probably the same height. There's an episode when Rachel dumps Paul(Bruce) when Chandler and Paul are in Joey and Chandler's they are very similar in height,and there ios of course LeBlack, that guy is a mystery, granted he looks kinda shorter than average, but his build is kinda bulky so maybe he is not so short as he looks, I say he's 5'9" and wears lifs to hit 5'11"
Ian said on 28/Aug/08
Imiliano watch the series 10 episode 13 The one where Joey speaks french. Ross puts his big healed shoes up in the hospital when he watches the dinosaurs on TV. They are huge with massive grips on the shoes as well. I've imaged it:-

Click Here
Imiliano said on 27/Aug/08
Sounds about right to me! I don't think Matthew Perry is under 5'11 and think that in the case of LeBlanc his larger build does him no favours height wise! I still can't but notice his huge shoes everytime I watch a Friends episode though! I always had David at 6'1 ish but I guess a difference of 2.54cm is not really much! Anyway, loving the height chart!
Ian said on 26/Aug/08
Hi imiliano, That chart I can see Schwimmer is 6ft 1.5 in his shoes. Each line is 3 inches and he comes half way that is 6ft 1.5 right. They are all wearing shoes. That gives Schwimmer a height of around 6ft barefoot. He always wears big healed dress shoes. Thanks for that. Perry a touch smaller just over 6ft in shoes on the chart and Matt Le blanc 5ft 11 in footwear( looks like he is wearing trainers). It's what I've been saying all along. 6ft for Schwimmer. around 5ft 11 for Perry and around 5ft 10 tops for Le blanc barefoot. The key thing is they are all wearing shoes because the girls all appear above their true heights too.
Imiliano said on 24/Aug/08

George said on 24/Aug/08
Monica comes up to just below ross' lip giving him about 7 inches on her. We KNOW that she is 5'5" because she has said so many times. So ross is 6ft, he has about 2 inches on Chandler in Friends which would make matthew about 5'10".
Christina B said on 31/Jul/08
OMG David Shwimmer is not 5'1" lol you prob made a typo lol huh
jennifer said on 27/Jul/08
I think he's 5'"11" or close to that he's taller than Matt Leblanc who is kind of short , average ( 5'"9") but he is smaller than David Shwimmer who is 5'"1", and did he had weight problems during Friends 'cause he looked really thin during season 1-4 in season he gained pounds ( but it was ok , he didn't became fat) and in season 7 he became all slim again before going back to his weight during season 5 for season 8-9-10
