He can give a 6ft2-3 impression with his lanky build and long hair
Willis Christian Macaraig said on 25/Jan/20
I think Michael Bay is 6'3" because he looks very tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/18
He's got very long limbs for a 6ft1 guy
Canson said on 19/Apr/18
@Rampage: well said! 6’1.75 maybe 6’1 5/8 minimum to make him 6’1 or 6’0 7/8 at a low
Junior Hernandez said on 4/Feb/18
LaBeouf is weak 5'9 so do Michael Bay a weak 6'1 because there isn't over 4" between them.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/17
A real 6ft1 guy should be nearly 6ft2 out of bed
truth said on 18/Aug/17
I stood next to him and my estimation is that he's 5'.85" , DEFINITELY LESS THAN 6 FT. Unless he uses some kind of heels in the shoes. The guess option below doesn't even give anything less than 5.11 as an option , lol.
Canson said on 4/Jun/17
@Arch: I agree with MrT Black and Christian. Christian esp being over 6'5 that's a good perspective as he's been that height before 6-1. It only looks short when a 5'11 or 6' guy claims it. Now a real 6'1" like Renaldo or Derrick Rose look tall even to him or to me even tho I'm an inch shorter than Christian is
Mark(5'9.25") said on 2/Jun/17
I wonder how Peak Barack Obama, Peak Bill Murray, and Michael Bay would compare to each other.

I reckoned they could al fall into 6'1.25".
MrTBlack said on 27/May/17
@Arch Stanton

6'1" is definitely taller than at least %90 of males so a true 6'1" should frequently be the tallest in many social situations. In college and a city it's a bit different though. Almost no one is 6'5" so that's not even questionable that it's more remarkable than 6'1".
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 27/May/17
@Arch Stanton

I would never view a 6'1" guy as short, despite me being over 6'5". Just because someone is shorter than you, doesn't mean that you have to automatically consider them short. There's a difference between "short" and "shorter". A 6'1" guy is shorter than me of course, but not short.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/17
This guy has a long face and thin build though, that sort of look gives guys the tendency to look taller.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/17
LOL Christian, a legit 6'5.5 guy pretty much and you're commenting on how tall 6'1 is! 6'1 is into tall range and a decent height but it's certainly nothing "special" in height. A legit 6'5 3/8 on the otherhand, that's a lot more remarkable as a barefoot measurement!! If you mean that people who say 6'1 isn't tall are dumb then I agree but let's not get carried away with it being anything unusual.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 25/May/17
He's an example of how tall a legit 6'1" is. He towers most people he stand next to. People who say that 6'1" is nothing special are foolish.
Sandy Cowell said on 25/May/17
I had no idea Michael Bay was 6ft1! Neither did I know what he looked like!
Mark(5'9.25 said on 1/May/17
Rob, out of curiousity, who would measure taller, Barack Obama or Michael Bay?
Dejavu said on 26/Mar/17
Will Smith looks taller than this guy.
berta said on 25/Oct/16
i dont think he is taller than this beside will smith and dwayne johnson
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Oct/16
B-C I think. Can look 186cm
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
Rampage: I'd go with C or more specifically 185 lowest
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jul/16
Also directed Bad Boys
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/16
Out of bed: 187-188cm
Before bed: 185-186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/May/16
Rob, which of these would you put him in?

A) 188.5cm/186.5cm
B) 188cm/186cm
C) 187.5cm/185.5cm
D) 187cm/185cm
E) 186.5cm/184.5cm
Editor Rob: C, but then in some photos he can look more like B range
Andrea said on 8/Apr/16
Rob, do you think he might be shorter than this? There are several pictures where he can look no less than 3 inches shorter than Josh Duhamel! I also saw one photo where he was standing on his tip toes with Josh and still looked easily shorter than him! Unless Josh is 6'4, as he says, it's hard to believe that Michael is a big 6'1 guy!
Editor Rob: at times he could look less than 6ft 1, but I feel he still looks about 6ft 1 range. I wouldn't go under that just now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/16
Bay looks a strong 6ft1/weak 6ft2 in the above photo but has a slight camera advantage over Shia LaBeouf.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/15
He can look about 6ft1-6ft2
kevin said on 25/May/15
saw him 2 yrs ago at the pain gain premiere... solid 185cm for me
Rick said on 25/May/15
He looks very tall, I would say 6'2 out of bed is possible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/15
He looks a strong 6ft1 there at least.
Hypado said on 26/Feb/15
Michael Bay's height is 6ft 0.75in (184,8 cm)
Andrea said on 22/Feb/15
Sure, out of bed is possible :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/15
Rob, is 186cm possible?
Andrea said on 8/Feb/15
He's minimum 2.5 inches shorter than Josh Duhamel and he actually can look close to 3 inches shorter in some pictures! Considering Rob himself said that Josh could even be 6'3 flat, 6'1 does seem a stretch! 6'0.5 is closer...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/13
"Michael Bay's height is 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"

About 2in shorter than Josh Duhamel (strong 6ft3).
berta said on 29/Sep/13
about 6-7 cm shorteer than dwayne johnson
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Aug/13
Rob, maybe 186cm is possible for him?
wiltonstilts said on 17/Jul/13
Michael bay was never 6 02 Id say a strong 6 foot even.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/12
I saw 2in between Duhamel and Bay. Saw barely anything between Bay and Affleck also.

It's really...
6ft2(188cm) out of bed
6ft1.75(187cm) morning
6ft1.75(187cm) lunch
6ft1.5(187cm) afternoon
6ft1.5(187cm evening
6ft1.25(186cm) night

He's a tall guy, get over it
ANDREA[ITA] said on 9/Aug/12
Looks at least 3 inches shorter than Josh Duhamel, 6'0.5 is closer!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/12
Years ago I used to think Bay was 6ft2-3.
Probably his mullet and lankyness gave that impression.
But still, I doubt he's under this height. He looked at least
2in taller than Alec Baldwin and not a lot shorter than Ben Affleck
and Josh Hartnett in those premiere pics from 10 years ago.
steven said on 11/Jan/12
rampage, i saw the picture Ben Affleck with michael bay. Ben Affleck is closer to camera by advantage than bay standing in middle, it was more like 0.5" if you look at their eye level. if bay really was 6'1 than 6'1.5 goes to ben.

lol at michael bay cheating"

Haha, that's pathetic for a grown man...and Josh is slouching a bit so he does not appear too tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Nov/11
Needs 0.5in upgrade. Was only 1in shorter than Ben Affleck who I have down as 6"2.5 and at least 2in taller than Alec Baldwin who is not over a legit 5"11.
LAN Jiao said on 16/Nov/11
Bay is 6'0
leo said on 22/Oct/11
I think michael needs 1/2 inch downgrade.
leo said on 19/Oct/11

DejaVu said on 18/Oct/11
Not quite 6'1. I think he is 184cm. He looked 2 inches lower than Hartnett and Affleck, who are both strong 6'2.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Oct/11
definitely a 184 guy! no more!
LAN Jiao said on 30/Sep/11
sothing strange about michael bay height.

1st: with the behind scene cast of transformer he can look 5'11-6' on picture ,

2nd: with "6'2" will smith in army boots filming bad boys2
(which numbers of visitors here suspect smith was 6" in reality) bay look "6'1.25" which turns him 5'11.25.

3rd: with megan fox in heels he look right at a 6'1 frame.

4th: picture with 5'7.5 or 5'7.25 steven spieberg he look just 5'11-5'11.5

5th: with lead actor of transformer Shia LaBeouf he look nothing over 6foot also 182cm.

last: with good posture 6'3(190cm) jhosh duhamel he apear 5-6cm shorter than him which turns him fair 6'1 or 184cm.


i find it hard to guesstimate bay real height , with bad posture he can look 5'10-5'11 but suppose he was not tall as rob listed him 6'1. he might be at least 6'1 out of bed stuff and hover 6foot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Aug/11
Nah more 6ft1 to 6ft2.
Hansen said on 15/Aug/11
from 6ft to 6ft1 he looked. a strong 184cm.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 10/Aug/11
he's 6 foot!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/11
6ft1.25(186cm) should be his listed height
Peter said on 23/Jun/11
next to 5'8'' Peter Cullen he looked aweak 6'2''.. Peter's forehead was on Michael's neck level
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/11
6-7cm below Josh Duhamel...nothing under 6"1 for Bay
Andrea [ITA] said on 7/Apr/11
He's like 8-9 cms shorter than 192 duhamel... He's no more than 184!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jan/11
A little over 6"1, Rob?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Nov/10
186-187cm could be closer.

Not quite 6"2 and certainly not the 6"3 he also got listed at all those years.
Hugh 190cm said on 24/Jun/09
186cm maybe? 5ft11 no way!
Anonymous said on 9/Jun/09
I frequently visit here just for kicks, but after seeing this photo it totally made me think of this website. Michael bay looks significantly shorter then Josh Duhamel and quite a bit taller then Shia LeBouf

no way is he more than 6 foot. those shoes put him up at least an inch. i reckon hes about 5'10 - 10.5
dzm said on 16/Jan/08
This guy has never looked the 6'2" he gets listed at. He's no James Cameron. 184 sounds right for him.
Fifi said on 16/Jan/08
6 ft 0.5 in max. Click Here
There's no more than 4-5 inches difference between him and Spielberg.
ps. Look at his sneakers.
Anshelm said on 16/Jan/08
Using Gonzalo's link you can find pics with him next to Ben Affleck, Alec Baldwin and Scarlett Johansson - and yes, 180 cm/5'11" fits him better in them in my opinion too. Makes the pic with Djimon Hounsou & co. kinda interesting.

[Editor Rob: lookin again he looks taller than bruce willis and yeah, beside duhamel doesn't look over 6ft 1, so...]
Gonzalo said on 14/Jan/08
Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Frank2 said a long time ago that he was 1`80. That sounds much more realistic.
