5'9" on a good day lol. Ok, i changed my mind definitely probably either delusional or insecure, maybe both. He's giving 5'9" a bad name when saying that lol.

Wow...that was quick. imdb already has his biography height down to Rob's precise listing."

Just looked at his page... sometime between this post and now it went back at 5'9. Guess he must have spent some time in outer space lol

Jesus Christ, how he could claim 5'9''?
176cm guy said on 19/Jun/17
Man, not here to judge so negatively about his claim. But i would definitely hate to get in a conversation with him about height, once i say i'm 5'9", his insecurity probably might flip off. Then again maybe he said he's 5'9" so he can get more opportunities in acting roles. Who knows, maybe that's really the case.
Editor Rob: he definitely looked taller than Elijah Wood, but shorter than a guy like Kavan Smith, at least from what I remember seeing of him on Dirk Gently....with good posture he might look 5ft 6.5 though!

Keep in mind that actors play pretend for a living, so it shouldn't be too shocking for many of them to pretend being much taller.

I've started to believe that the bigger the claim, the likelier that the person is actually misinformed rather than lying. Think about it: if you truly want to fool people into believing that you're taller than you actually are, wouldn't you be be subtle and believable?

Okay, so 5'9" is a ridiculous joke, but the current average guess of 5'5.33 shows how juvenile some people are. I don't see him as millimeter below his listed height, and quite possibly a flat 5'6". Voting him the lowest possible 5'3.75 in retaliation for his dishonesty accomplishes nothing.

Man someone who's barely 5'6" claiming 5'9"???? Now that's just sad and pathetic.
Bard said on 14/Jun/17
Lol, probably that's a big exaggeration.

@Rob,

Thanks for adding him, because as I said in my request for this page, he's precisely why this site needs to exist. lol Guys got good proportions in everything. Why he'd feel the need to overclaim by over 3 inches is beyond me.

What a joker saying 5ft9in haha
$rich_biatch$ said on 13/Jun/17
so his claim is a "space height?"
Editor Rob: after a month in space he surely would be his claim.

My space height would be 5ft 10.

Bad enough 5'6.75 G claiming 5 ft 8 but a 5'5.75 guy claiming 5 ft 9 LOL!!
MJKoP said on 13/Jun/17
Just 5'9"? I could've sworn he was at LEAST 5'11".../sarcasm
Realist said on 12/Jun/17
I am 5'9.75 or approx 5'10 but guy I know is 5'4 claims 5'8 it's similar to this.

I know also a guy who claims 6 ft 1 but who's in reality only 5 ft 9.25

That's absolutely insane. He loathes his height so much to the point of exaggerating almost 4 inches. I usually don't condone anyone adding more than an inch (unless if they're very short and insecure, then up to 2 inches might be okay)

I watched the first 2 episodes (and stopped there) of Dirk Gently like 3-4 months ago and, after seeing he generally got listed at 5'9, I tried to find his claim on Twitter... I remember I found a "5'9 on a good day" claim, which is certainly a bit optmistic. From those 2 episodes, I thought "maybe this guy is somewhere between 5'6 and 5'7" but he apparently isn't even the full 5'6? LOL
Here's the claim: Click Here
And here's another quote where he says 5'9: Click Here
Editor Rob: on his best day after being in space he might be 5ft 9!

Giving us 5'9 guys a bad rep lol, good listing.
MJKoP said on 12/Jun/17
Wow...that was quick. imdb already has his biography height down to Rob's precise listing. Funny that right above, his own resume still gives him an additional three-and-one-quarter inches.

I was thinking about watching Louis' stand up, but Brown Jr's claim is all I needed for a big laugh. That was a good one xD
Tunman said on 11/Jun/17
So 3.25" boost? Makes G a very strong 5'8 that's good news.But seriously how people dare to lie that much.I mean at this point it's too obvious.That he claimed 5'7 would have been understandable,though a disgrace in celebheights community but claiming 5'9?Would be funny if he met 5'9 Jamie Foxx.
What about making a list of top boosters?It would include among others Bieber 2.5" Hodder 2.5" one direction members(2-3"safe Niall) and this dude of course
Shredder said on 11/Jun/17
I can claim 5'9 now.
Paul said on 11/Jun/17
This guy looks nothing like a 5'9. He clearly has a small build. I can't see his resume, but that's kind of sad if it's he himself who is claiming it, people who inflate by one inch are a dime a dozen and usually not noticeable but over three inches is just ridiculous.
Sam said on 11/Jun/17
Claiming around 3 inches more than your actual height....shameful.
Peter175 said on 11/Jun/17
Most optimistic listing I've seen in a while

Looks a decent 5'6ish to me though
tom said on 11/Jun/17
5'9", blimey, talk about giving yourself a boost...
MJKoP said on 11/Jun/17
If Rob's height is accurate vs. what he claims on his resume, we may very well have a brand new champion for biggest height exaggerator. Feldman, you've been dethroned!
$rich_biatch$ said on 11/Jun/17
if rob had a nickel for every inch lied on celebheights...
World Citizen said on 11/Jun/17
He listed himself as 5'9 but in reality he is almost 5'6..

I know a person who says that he is actually 6 ft 1 but in reality he is no more than 5 ft 9.25
Arthur said on 11/Jun/17
What the f? 3.25 inches inflation? No wonder why girls think 5'9 men are midgets. What a complexed nasty short guy. Truth be told though , he looks taller in this photo, proportion wise.
Blake said on 11/Jun/17
I think listings like this is are why celebheights should be around without it people will perceive themselves as smaller than they are

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
