james ,
john goodman was't 6'2. check him out the set pictures of RED STATE preimere with 6'5-6'5.5 nicholas braun with flat sneakers. goodman was at least 5inch shorter than bruan. if goodman pass 6'1 barefoot i did be surprise.
also 6ft tall jim carrey was a good 2inch taller than nicholas cage which Stan point his short "5-9". but i don think that small on cage. cage is at least 5'9.75 lowest. so cage 5'10 since he were 2inch under jim.
the only reason why cage can apear tall sometimes is he wore elevator shoe or just normal heleed shoe.

in lord of war bridget moynahan was barefoot "shes 5ft9.25" andd nicolas was with dresss shoes and he looked to have "2" inches over bridget so may be cage is 5ft11 with footware and with no shoes he might be 5ft10 5ft10.5 but never 6ft1

James as always says BS! 6'1 in cowboy boots is probable! I dunno, he could be 6ft, not over! I dont think hes less than 180 in any case!

Cage is only a hair shy off 6'1. 6'1-6'2 in cowboy boots.

6'1 is not joke cause he is close too that mark.

................Are you serious?

Yes i am because john goodman who is a strong 6'2 only had 1.5 on him in the late 80's.
Stan said on 11/Oct/11
I had a friend that saw him on a set (up close), he's 6'1". He said he is "short", meaning 5'9" or less.
Chameleon said on 11/Oct/11
Try 179cmish for Cage. 6'0 is utter bs.

Dude, a 6-3.5 guy would have 2 inches on Rock.

James, If you are gonna troll at least be funny.
James said on 8/Oct/11
Viper says on 6/Oct/11
LOL James.

6-1 Nic Cage and 6-4 Rock

Nicholas Cage 6'0.5 (184cm)
Rock Dwayne Johnson 6'3.5 (192cm)

Today though the rock would have might just have 2.5 or 3 inches on Cage.
Viper said on 6/Oct/11
LOL James.

6-1 Nic Cage and 6-4 Rock
DejaVu said on 6/Oct/11
I wouldn't go for anything under 5'11.5
Chameleon said on 6/Oct/11
Yeah in big heeled boots.

179ish barefoot.

Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 5/Oct/11
6'1 is a joke, he can give a 6'1 impression with big footwear, but he's for sure between 5'11.5 and 6'0 barefoot.
James said on 4/Oct/11
at least 6ft
Chameleon said on 4/Oct/11
He only reaches 6+ in his big heeled boots.
myself said on 3/Oct/11
take a look of this mr. cage looks like 5ft11.5 next to 6ft olyphant ithink cage is 5ft11 barefoot

James said on 3/Oct/11
About 1.5 inches shorter than 6'2-6'2.5 John Goodman so 6'0.5-6'1 in 1987.
Chameleon said on 3/Oct/11
LAN Jiao I totally agree.
LAN Jiao said on 2/Oct/11
6'1? No way. Not even 6" tall. I would 't be surprise if he was barely 5"10. I'll give cage 5'10.5
James said on 1/Oct/11
In Raising Arizona he was a fraction taller than the 6ft mark at the police station so 6'0 1/2 makes sense.
James said on 30/Sep/11
get over it the guys tall..he's at least 6ft so stop this 5ft10ish and 5'11 rubbish. he can look 5'11ish cause he does not stand well.
Chameleon said on 28/Sep/11
5'10ish
DejaVu said on 28/Sep/11
He can look anywhere from a strong 5'11 to a 6'1. I think 6'0 is bang on,
me said on 25/Sep/11
no way 6ft 2 a 6ft1 i can go with that
ANDREA[ITA] said on 25/Sep/11
James ahahah you make me laugh so much!
James said on 21/Sep/11
if he put on a pair off trainers in hte morning when he was younger i am sure he would measure at 6'2.
Chameleon said on 21/Sep/11
Get lost, he was never 6'1 morning.
James said on 20/Sep/11
In his 20's he was defenintly 6'1 in the morning no doubt about that.
LUCOSO said on 14/Sep/11
6 feet sound right,but whats going on with is hair
Chameleon said on 13/Sep/11
No way 6 foot as he's shorter than 6'0 Jim Carrey.
dmeyer said on 11/Sep/11
this guy is nothing less than 5 ft 11.5-11.75 in his 40 after no sleep for a week , this guy is not forcing posture , about 6 ft 1 out of bed in 20s can give illusion of 5ft 11.25-11.5 but is neaerer 6 ft
carnegie said on 4/Sep/11
5ft10 its like too short for him ill say he "can " be a 5ft10.5 barefoot
Chameleon said on 4/Sep/11
The people who have met him in person claim he's 5'10 range on this site.
Maximus said on 3/Sep/11
The people who have met him in person range his height from 5'10 to 6'1....I think his true height is between 5'11 and 6'...at least thats how he comes across on film...he definetly does not come across as being short unlike tom cruise, pacino etc.
idk said on 2/Sep/11
In the Cohen film Raising Arizona he came up as just about 6ft on the height chart at the police academy; this was with loafers on. He's probably about 5'11.5" if the height chart was even accurate.
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 27/Aug/11
If he's only 5'11, then he's the tallest looking 5'11 I've ever seen.
Quite frankly he always looked 5'11.75-6'0 to me, can give a 6'1 impression with good footwear.

He looks taller than 6'0 Ron Perlman today (who can be 5'11.5 today) in all their pics together, and was closer to 6'0.25 John Travolta in "Face off".
He doesn't look under 6'0 also next to 6'2-6'2.5 Alfred Molina and 5'11.5 Jay Baruchel.
carnegie said on 24/Aug/11
6ft shoes on 5ft 11.5 barefoot he looked tall in the weather man

5ft11 barefoot 6ft wuth shoes
Chameleon said on 20/Aug/11
Alex one thing is certain this guy is shorter than u. And not taller for sure!
Alex said on 20/Aug/11
Saying Cage is 5'10 1/2 tops is selling him too short. Hes not as tall as 6'0-6'1 as some think too but I dont think hes as low as 5'10-5'10.5 either.
Alex said on 20/Aug/11
5'11 is my guess
Chameleon said on 17/Aug/11
179cm MAX
johno said on 17/Aug/11
Voight 6'0.5 cage 5'10.5
Chameleon said on 17/Aug/11
Indeed, I already said this guy is 5'10 range. 6ft in his big heeled boots yea.
johno said on 16/Aug/11
6'0 is so far out. How about 5'10? He is 2 or so inches shorter then jon voight who himself barely eclipses 6'0 at his current age, see mamuns picture with voight..

James said on 2/Aug/11
Rubbish in Family Man looked 6'0 or 6'1.
joe carter said on 2/Aug/11
Thats funny! In raising arizona he looked at 6ft with shoes on. if you watch the family man, near the end before he goes back to his real life hes talking to the angel in the store, and if you pause it as hes walking out the door youll see the red measuring chart by the exit door. pause it as hes walking out. hes still under 6ft and thats slouching with snowboots on. Im 5'10 1/2'' but where im skinny i pass for 6ft 6ft1 in shoes. but im only 5'11 1/2'' with tennis shoes on. so I believe nick cage is between my height of 5'10 1/2'' and 5'11 1/2''.
James said on 25/Jul/11
Rob is 184cm possible? I think Cage is a legit 6ft 1/2.

6'0". looked 5'11" w/ 6'2" samuel l. jackson in AMOS and ANDREW. but had terrible posture.
Legend said on 18/Jul/11
Yes he is over 5'11, just not 6 feet. He's about 181.75 cm
Chameleon said on 18/Jul/11
No he's not over 5'11.
James said on 17/Jul/11
6ft-6ft1
Legend said on 17/Jul/11
He's 5'11.75
Mathew said on 5/Jul/11
I think he could be a weak 6', but a weak 5'11" is too low. 5'11.75" seems plausible, or just 6'0".
Chameleon said on 5/Jul/11
Yeah and I looked same height as Hagrid the giant in Harry Potter.

180cm max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/11
Looked about the same as Travolta in Face Off...184cm seems plausible
Chameleon said on 30/Jun/11
Yeah in lifts/big heeled boots he's 6ft indeed. 5'10 range without. At best 5'11.
James said on 29/Jun/11
at least 6ft.
Chameleon said on 27/Jun/11
He's 5'10ish
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/11
I think he may be a little over 6ft.
Terryman said on 21/Jun/11
in national treasure he made john voight look an easy 6'2.5(189cm) in the scene where they walk side by side while he is handcufted! 183cm max
Chameleon said on 12/Jun/11
Indeed da_truth, this guy is no 6'0.....
da_truth said on 11/Jun/11
he is 5'10-ish -> Jay Baruchel was taller in the Sorcerer's Apprentice
Dmeyer said on 6/Jun/11
CAN look 5 ft 11.5 alot even when younger hé has relax posture looks about about 184 cm on gone in 60 but hé has biker boots
Chameleon said on 6/Jun/11
5'11 max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/11
I think anything between 6ft-6ft0.75 is spot on for him.
Dmeyer said on 2/Jun/11
In most films hé looks 5 ft 11.5 to 6 ft near to 6 ft 1 when in cowboy
Mr. Kaplan said on 2/Jun/11
I thought he was 6', but watched 8MM the other day and realized he couldn't be over 5'11".
Chameleon said on 31/May/11
Viper, BAG is 5'10 and change as we agree'd on. Anyway, Cage might be 5'11 but certainly no more than that as he was shorter than Jim Carrey who is 6'0ish, but ye 5'10 range for this guy is not unbelievable at all.
Viper said on 28/May/11
I think Cage is 5-11. 5-10? hmm anything is possible and I thought Brian Austin Green wasnt below 5-11 yet the pic with Rob proves hes 5-10.
Chameleon said on 26/May/11
Yeah right, all those pictures and videos are faulty angles? Even all the ones on the beach? Haha right. Carrey is NOT 187cm.
kookie said on 26/May/11
in the 87 arizona film he seemed pretty tall SOLID 6-foot listed here

maybe with age weight gain poor posture he lost height ???

but its obvious he is no less than SOLID 5-11 period.
micheal said on 25/May/11
Chameleon are you Dill Pickle's lackey or something? And you think you got Carrey's height spot on but that is based on faulty angles he is really 187 cm
Chameleon said on 25/May/11
He cant be 6'0ish because thats Carrey's height. Why is 5'10 range so unbelievable?
Chameleon said on 22/May/11
BINGO! Thank you AaronWOlf!

The picturs with Jim Carrey already proved he is 5'10 range!

CHEERS.
AaronWOlf said on 21/May/11
Nope. Saw him in real life. He was EXACTLY the same height as me. he's 5'10.
Chameleon said on 20/May/11
Yes Mohammed hes shorter than Jim Carrey, therefor he isnot 6'.
Mohammed said on 19/May/11
Doubt he's 6', more like 5'11 - 5'11.5 to be honest.
PatB said on 16/May/11
Cage is just about the right size for his screen image. Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Mel Gibson and Robert Downey are all too short. They should all be about 6'0" to 6'2" for their typical roles. Arnold is also too short - not in real life but on screen he portrays big guys. Arnold plays roles that call for him to be about 6'4".

Real height hardly matters. This is after all "Celebrity Height" not "Normal Everyday Guy Heights".
ulrike said on 1/May/11
nicolas cage to me is a solid 5ft 11.5 saw "lord of war" and when hes standing next to bridget moynahan she looks like 2 inches shorter than him and she wasn't wearing shoes
Chameleon said on 27/Apr/11
Looks 5'11 range with Jim Carrey.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Apr/11
Both John Travolta and Nicholas Cage are 6"0.5(184cm)

6 footer indeed.

in national treasure at the end of the movie cage is on an even ground and simillar footwear with 6 ft greenwood and he looks easy as tall if not 1cm taller
RICHARD said on 11/Mar/11
He was described by William Fichtner in Drive Angry as "6'1".
DMan said on 7/Mar/11
6'0, nothing more nothing less.
Eli said on 28/Feb/11
if you google "nicolas cage young" you'll get a picture of his height..more like 181-182 with a relaxed posture.
Brad said on 21/Feb/11
6' 1" weak.
TruebloodFan said on 17/Feb/11
the guy hunches a lot giving a 5ft11 impression. on the other hand in better footwear he looks 6ft1. 6ft is the best listing, he should stay 6ft.
Ray said on 8/Feb/11
I can well believe that Eddie.
Eddie said on 7/Feb/11
Met him once and he couldn't have been any nicer, but I'm 5"11 and i was taller by at least an inch or two. No BS.
Jack88 said on 31/Jan/11
He has a picture with a friend of mine who is about 6'. Nicolas Cage is an inch taller than him. He's 6'1".
James said on 30/Jan/11
184cm in his 20's.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jan/11
6"0.25(184cm)
Renee said on 22/Jan/11
Glad to know how tall he is. A good friend and I were having a debate about his height. Friend thought he was 5'5". No way!!
Dan said on 8/Jan/11
In Some movies he can look really tall. It might be his heels giving him a taller look, but he can't be anything under 6'0.
ACG said on 3/Jan/11
Ajax says on 8/Dec/10
In "Face Off" In the beginning of the film lists him as "6feet".

Nope, it lists him as 6'1" and even shows him at a height chart. See 3:40-3:44

Sam Rick said on 24/Dec/10
He looks taller in the movies because of his footwear but not alot of guys are slightly above 6ft so he is quite tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/10
Looked 184-185cm in Gone in Sixty Seconds...
James said on 17/Dec/10
Yeah in the family man he did pull of looking taller than 6'0. In Con Air though he looked 182cm to me.
r said on 17/Dec/10
Saw the Family man, would estimate him taller: more like 185cm.
James said on 11/Dec/10
Cage is still a solid 6ft. I would imagine he would be half an inch taller than Travolta nowadays.

There is a chance Cage was 184cm in his 20's. 183cm today.
Ajax said on 8/Dec/10
In "Face Off" In the beginning of the film lists him as "6feet".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/10
6"0.25-6"0.5 range.

About the same as John Travolta.
Mr. R said on 30/Nov/10
dmeyer, I love my cowboy boots. I have had them for 15 years now, and I will never get rid of them. But I am just about two inches taller than others when I wear them.
dmeyer said on 29/Nov/10
cowboy boots mostly give 1.7 i have a pair home they give 1.7 plus 0.1 insole the give 1.8 in they dont give a fool 2 in so if someone has cowboy heels while the other guy has 1.1 in dress shoes he only gets a 1.5cm advantage
Larc187cm said on 28/Nov/10
In that mugshot the camera looks very low and can give the illusion that he's under 6'0, plus he has also the worst posture in the world. 6'0 minimum for this guy if standing straight.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/10
Can look below 6"0 with bad posture.
Larc186-188cm said on 20/Nov/10
Can give a 6'1 illusion with the right footwear. He's a strong 6'0 for sure.
Anonymous said on 14/Nov/10
I met him in New Orleans during filming of movie Bad Leutenient Port of Call New Orleans or some such title. We walked down the sidewalk together and chatted. I'm 5'6 & was shocked that he's only 4 inches taller than me MAXIMUM!! And he was wearing boots with me in flats! 5'9 at most!
Anonymous said on 13/Nov/10
cage and don cheadle in "Family Man". very little difference in height. cheadle listed at 5'8", cage at 6'0". makes a strong case for cage using lifts in other movies unless cheadle used lifts in "Family Man" which would make no sense. Cage in the 5'9"-5'11" range makes sense.
Del Mar said on 11/Nov/10
Click Here Probably has no significance, as this is a doll, but looks 5'11 here. I'm 6' on the dot
James said on 6/Nov/10
I must say Cage has terrible posture which is why he can look 5'11 in his some of his movies.
ACG said on 5/Nov/10
James says on 21/Oct/10
In Face/Off his computer profiled had him at 6'1 and John Travolta at 6'0.


Nope, they were both listed as 6'1".
berta said on 1/Nov/10
in the new movie drive angry they discribe him "6´1" but i thing he is 183 maybe 184
Yelmer said on 30/Oct/10
I don't like to downgrade people but his height varies so much it seems more than just regular slouching & footwear, he probably wears lifts to achieve that 6 foot look that leading actors disire
RisingForce said on 28/Jun/09
Didn't Frank2 say that Cage looked 6'1" to him? I can buy 6'1" for Cage if he stood straight.
Nismofreak said on 24/Jun/09
Cage is a legit 6 footer. At times, he does look 6'1.
Clay said on 20/Jun/09
Akirum, I grew 8 inches after 18. There is no limit to how much someone can grow after 18.

By the way Ben Lyons was a good 3 or 4 inches taller than Cage when he interviewed him on the Sorcerers apprentice set.
Lenad said on 20/Jun/09
6ft0 max for Cage
Lenad said on 20/Jun/09
Carrey being 6ft1 or taller i do buy
Lenad said on 20/Jun/09
yeah a 6ft1 Nick cage would equal a 6ft3 Jim Carrey. If Cage is 6ft0 min then Carrey is 6ft2 if not a bit more which is just ridiculos
James said on 17/Jun/09
6'1 does seem far fetched for this guy.
Lenad said on 12/Jun/09
I suspect hes 6ft0 at best. hes clearly shorter than jim Carrey who is 6ft2 max so we can throw the 6ft1 claims of cage in the volcano
James said on 10/Jun/09
A short looking 6ft
Danny said on 10/Jun/09
I'll buy 6ft on the dot for Nick Cage, he looks it.
Evan Faine said on 1/Jun/09
After looking at him next to Tom Sizemore, I'm gonna have to go with either 5'11" or 5'11.5" max.
TELLEM said on 31/May/09
hes no more than 6'0, could even be a tad under...look at him with 5'11 tom sizemore: Click Here Click Here
Josh.J said on 30/May/09
i seriously doubt that he's 6'1. this is a link of pics with cage and jay baruchel filming "sorcerer's apprentice". jay is just under 6'0 on celebheights.

Click Here

looks very similar and no suspect shoes. infact i think baruchel might have half an inch on him. 6ft max for cage but more likely he's between that and 5'11.
GUK said on 30/May/09
But then explain the Carey photo!
gilipollas said on 30/May/09
6 feet WITH BOOTS ON. So 5.11 max for nick.
Alex2401 said on 30/May/09
Michael Caine had 2inces on him whole movie.So either Cage height is not ok either
Caines height...
RisingForce said on 29/May/09
It's his terrible posture that makes him look shorter. I use to think he was 5'11" because of it., but standing up straight he's clearly a legit 6 footer, possibly 6'1".
Hugh 190cm said on 27/May/09
OilTheMan. Chances are you will probably be over the 6ft mark. like 6ft1 or 6ft2, maybe even 6ft3.
Evan Faine said on 26/May/09
Click Here
Even standing straight up, I don't think he can hit 6'. Barefoot he's probably 5'11" or 5'11.25".

He still kicks ass, no matter how tall. Face/Off rules!
OliTheMan said on 23/May/09
hey everyone - I'm 5"10" and 16. dyou think I can make it to 6 ft? or even 5"11"?
GUK said on 8/May/09
The weird thing is when I first saw Cage in a film I thought he was tall i.e. 6ft 1 or more, but he's just quite tall and very skinny which gives a biger illusion.
The Carey Pic (a true 6ft 1.5) puts him slightly under 6ft, which adds up to how he measures against Sean Bean and Carusso.
Josh.J said on 21/Apr/09
he needs to be downgraded. saw con air again and he was shorter than ving rhymes (who had heel advantage). cage is more like 5'11 who often wears cowboy boots.
Akirum said on 20/Apr/09
Cage is a strong 6 ft, and I think he could claim 6 ft 1 and that would not be out of the bounds of legitimacy.

OliTheMan: If you are 5 ft 10 at age 16 you have a good chance of growing 1 or 2 inches taller. Lots of men continue growing into their early twenties, and generally by age 20 to 24 they have achieved full stature. I was 5 ft 11 1/4 in tall at age 18, but at age 22 I am now 6 feet even, depending on how much sleep I get. (the longer my spine has to retract, the taller I generally am the next day).
Rusty said on 12/Apr/09
Well guys tend to take more after their mom's height. So how tall she is has alot to do with this. Also when you started puberty has a huge impact because you may be done growing. Look a few comments down and you can see that I started freshman year at 5'10" 10th grade at 6', junior year at 6'2" and then stopped later at 6'3". Im skinny too, I weigh only 170.
OliTheMan said on 11/Apr/09
Hey Rusty, Jon, whoever? I have a question; i'm 5"10 and im sixteen, my older bro (21) and my dad are same height as me but i have lower shoulders than them, yet i reach their height cus i have a big head. i also have bigger hands and feet (though im quite skinny). dyou think I will grow taller than them by leveling them shoulder-by-shoulder or will i just stay this height from now on? just wondering.
Rusty said on 6/Apr/09
I coach the football team at the high school i teach at also. There are about 3,000 kids at the school. It is in LA so we have a huge diverse group of kids from all racial backgrounds. We measure and weigh all of the football players and I would say about 30-40% of them are at least 6 foot.
jon said on 5/Apr/09
Could very well be possible Rusty, if they are truly 6-feet at the age of 14. Again though your sample of schoolkids would not be the norm, by far. It's not common to find a 6-foot 14 year old, and much less common to find a classroom full with them, lol
Rusty said on 29/Mar/09
So that would mean that most of the people who start 9th grade at 6' would end up being like 6'2" or something?
jon said on 28/Mar/09
Rusty, that' exactly correct, but the growth rate slows down once you've reached that 80% of your height around the ages of 14-16. People who grow 5 inches after the age of 15 are rare.
Rusty said on 24/Mar/09
I read that the average man stops growing at 17, the same age that i stopped at. I started my freshman year at 5'10", sophomore year at 6', junior year at 6'2" and stopped at 6'3" halfway through junior year a few months after i turned 17.

Rusty, most high school freshmen are 14-15, exactly the age the majority of kids reach their full adolescent height. It isn't young at all. And while I don't know if you live in a city or not, an ordinary high school class isn't a good pool to judge an average by. And Rusty, 6'3" and up is VERY tall anywhere where you are. In fact it's *restrictively* tall a number of things.
Rusty said on 24/Mar/09
I have to disagree there. I teach at a high school and many of the freshman are 6' already, its not that tall, its just 2 inches above average. Im 6'3" and tower alot of people, but my height is nothing amazing either.
jon said on 22/Mar/09
Hugh2 and Rusty, do you realize you guys live in your own bubbles of height appreciation? I'm 6-foot even. Although I may see many people taller than I, I do realize I'm MUCH taller than the average American man. It's worthwhile to realize that the reason why you may have the illusion that people "are taller" now, as opposed to an earlier generation, is rather for the fact that there are more people around us than ever before (look at population statistics). And by its causation, the appearance of a higher height average in younger generations. This is especially apparent if you live in a city and are around many people. It is not, as it may seem to you, that people on average are taller than they were a generation ago.
Hugh2 said on 20/Mar/09
If you come from a family of genuinely tall people like I do than you'd realize how untall 183cm really is. I myself am 6ft2.75 but I have an uncle on my mother's side of the family whose 6ft and completely stands out. My dad is 6ft3.25 (6ft4 peak), My brother is 6ft3.5, my dad's uncles are 6ft4, 6ft6 and 6ft4.5 respectively. My mother is 5ft10.5 and my sister 5ft10 who in a pair of heels would be taller than him.

To be fair 6ft used to be a tall height because back 30 years ago when my uncle would have been a young man 6ft was the '6ft4' of it's day. A 6ft man would've been considered very tall. Nowadays it's halfway between the average height and tall.
Rusty said on 19/Mar/09
Yeah the younger generation is certainly taller. I am a high school teacher and many students at the school are 6 foot when they start their freshman years.
dani said on 17/Mar/09
"o, 5'9" is not average, it is below average. Trust me on this, im 6'3" and see people taller than me every day. Average now is a strong 5'10" and for current youths ive noticed closer to 5'11". 6' is not tall, but its a decent height to be, im sure."

You're wrong as you can be. 5"9 is everywhere in the US. I live in the tallest state in the US(Minnesota) which has an average of 5"11 for men and 5"7 for women and even here i see many short people in the streets. Short people meaning 5"7 or less. You're being in denial, our height average for men is 5"9.25 like it is in England and many developed countries. I agree that younger generations are taller............
dani said on 17/Mar/09
I disagree with Hugh on his opinion of 6 foot. A 6footer is always tall everywhere. A 6footer is 3 inches taller than the average which is 5"9 in America. Worldwide average height for men is 5.678 so a 6footer would feel pretty good elsewhere.
TELLEM said on 17/Mar/09
on the basketball court or in wrestling
Rusty said on 17/Mar/09
I agree with Hugh completely on his opinion of 6 foot. I dont really find it tall, but its a good 2 inches above average and a 6 footer will never feel short, except on the basketball court.
\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 14/Mar/09
6ft isn't really that tall. It's above average but not genuinely tall. Cage is a solid 6ft guy. Perhaps 183cm-184cm would be bang on.
RisingForce said on 11/Mar/09
He must have been slouching more next to Jim Carrey than the picture showed. Carrey is in the 6'1" to 6'1.5" range and no taller in my opinion and now I'd put Cage in the 6'0"-6'1" range so Carrey appearing 2 inches taller in a full body shot picture is odd.

RisingForce said on 5/Mar/09
I think I may have been fooled by his truly horrendous posture. When he stands up straight(which is rare) I now see him taller than 6 foot flat. Probably 6'0.25", 6'0.5" but possibly 6'1".

His posture is really awful though. It looks like he slouches on purpose!

Average American man's height: 5'9.25"
Rusty said on 28/Feb/09
To answer the questions below of what is considered tall, I will give my opinion on the issue. The avergage American man is a little over 5'10" so 6' really isnt a tall height as its not even 2 inches above average. I am 6'3" and I see people taller than me almost everyday. 1% on average reach 6'4", so that is quite a tall height, but nothing amazing.

Here is what I classify as the different height groups for men:

Midget=Under 5'4"
Pathetically short=5'4" to 5'6"
Short=5'7" to 5'9"
Average=5'10" to 6'0"
Mildly Tall=6'1" to 6'2"
Tall=6'3" to 6'5"
Very Tall=6'6" to 6'8"
Freakishly Tall=6'9" and above

Hugh said on 6/Feb/09
6ft is tall. But you would'nt brag about being tall if you're only 183cm. Well actually I'd say genuinely tall is like 6ft1 onwards. But a legit 6ft1. Not a fake 6ft1 like Bruce Willis. A legit 6ft1 guy would actually claim 6ft1-6ft2.

James, i don't know how someone at 5ft 11 can think 6ft 1 isnt that tall. thats crazy! to me, 6ft 1 and above is very tall, 5ft 10 to 6ft is tall and 5ft 8 and 5ft 9 is average. but thats just me because people in the UK are rarely above 6ft 1 anyway. but.... yeh i still think 6ft 1 is very tall, and im an inch & half off of it.

PaulPierce4Ever, 6ft IS tall! its well above average height. judging by your comment your probably pretty tall yourself. but trust me, 6ft is tall. Im half an inch shy of 6ft myself, and i still get people commenting on my height.

Lenad said on 22/Jan/09
I can buy a strong 182cm at the lowest. If Cage is 6ft2 then Jim Carrey is like 6ft3 though.
Jon said on 21/Jan/09
In Ghost Rider, Cage looks a solid 6ft. Even though he has quite a relaxed posture in that film with a bit of slouching, you can still tell that he is fairly tall. The least i'd put Cage at is 5ft 11.75in(182cm), and thats pretty much 6' anyway coz 183cm technically is just over 6'. Its just rounded up.
runt said on 14/Jan/09
Those are monstrous heels, GUK, and they use the "clown shoe" effect so that the angle doesn't look as extreme as it is.
AG said on 14/Jan/09
About 12 years ago, i was always thinking that Cage was a really tall man, i mean more than 6ft, maybe 6'1. His slim frame, long arms and long legs was giving me that impression. But now, after seeing that photo with Carrey, i started to believe that he could be 5'11. Maybe if he didn't hunch too much, he could look like 6ft, or just a little over.

COuld've sworn I saw 6ft2 in Leaving Las Vegas. He seemed so much taller than James Caan.
RisingForce said on 9/Jan/09
I think he still is whatever he was in his 20's. 44 seems young to lose height.

He's tricky because sometimes he really gives the impression of a guy well over six feet but when he stands next to some people he under six feet. For example look at him next to Jim Carrey, Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, Samuel L Jackson and Lionel Richie.

But he can look as high as 6-1. I'm not sure if he looks taller than he is because of the boots he often wears and his slim frame or if his poor posture makes him look shorter than he is. A lot of variables with Cage.
RisingForce said on 7/Jan/09
Insider is a really funny guy.

He says 5-7 for Chuck Norris, 5-7 for Antonio Banderas, 5-8 for Johnny Depp, 5-10 for Nicolas Cage and 5-8 for Chris Rock.

it seems that he shaves 2 inches off of everyone's height!

Easily 6'0 at his peak. He could be as low as 5'11 today.

He's 44, I doubt he's lost height.
RisingForce said on 3/Jan/09
Yeah but he usually looks somewhere between 5-11 to 6-1. I've never seen him look as low as 5-10 flat, even slouching.

I do think the full body shot picture next to Jim Carrey suggests that he could be 5-11 or 5-11.5 though.
Click Here

Carrey is listed at 6-1.5 here. Glenn initially said 6-1 but also said that he didn't have a problem with 6-1 or 6-2. Mr. R said about 6-1 but Frank2 said 6-2.

I think for now Rob's 6-1.5 listing is the best. If that's accurate then Cage looks 5-11.5 or 6-0 with Carrey.

Insider: WOW. You really have some "inside" info on stars. 5'10" for Cage is a new one. You give me a whole new perspective on life here. Thank you so much. You are off and as rising said: If someone would put you at gunpoint and ask you to half way accurately tell folks height it would end up in execution. For you that is.

But then again what do I know, I've only met him half a dozen times.

Hugh said on 27/Dec/08
Okay 6ft3 is unrealistic. 6ft2 he can look at times due to his proportions. I'd say he's between 6ft and 6ft1.
RisingForce said on 26/Dec/08
Like I said, I can see 6 feet even but that full body shot picture with Jim Carrey is really confusing.

I don't know, his limbs do look too long for a 5-11 guy except for Ghost Rider where he just looked 5-11 to me regardless. Usually it seems he has the proportions of a legit 6 footer though.
dmeyer said on 23/Dec/08
he can look as low as 5 ft 11.5 not under but he dosnt force posture he is laid back most of the times 183 184 barefeet
RisingForce said on 23/Dec/08
Exactly, he looked 5-11 in Ghost Rider too. He looks 6-1 sometimes, but never over it which is key.
RisingForce said on 22/Dec/08
He could be 5-11. He's not a full 6-1 though, he can look that tall but probably because of his slim frame and big heeled boots. With his slim frame and boots he'd look 6-2 or 6-3 once in a while if he was 6-1, and he never looks that tall.

He looks anywhere from 5-11 to 6-1 always.
Hugh said on 21/Dec/08
Cage isn't less than 6ft. 184-185cm I think is closer to the truth.
RisingForce said on 20/Dec/08
He didn't look much shorter than 6'3" Michael Rapaport in Kiss Of Death although he was shorter than David Caruso in some scenes(listed 5'11.5" here). In other scenes he was the same height or slightly taller than Caruso.

His height can be all over the place. I see some pictures and modies where he struggles at 5'11" and others where he looks like he's a strong 6'1".
RisingForce said on 11/Dec/08
Yeah he can give a 6'1" impression but with his thin frame and big heeled boots he should at times give an impression of taller than he is. Which is why I can't buy 6'1" at all since he never looks over that.

He looked tall in National Treausre 2 I thought but 5'11" throughout Ghost Rider.

I guess all of the times he looks 5'11" could be more because of his posture because he never really looks under that either hwoeevr he wa standing perfect straight when he looked 5'11" in the picture with Jim Carrey and Samuel L Jackson. He seemed to be standing straight when he looked 5'11" in the full body shot with Carrey too though.

Maybe he's 5'11.5"/5'11.75". Glenn mentioned quite a while ago that he saw him look 5-11ish once but thought it could have been posture, I believe he usually sees him at 6-0.5.

I agree with gonzalo and Bam though that he's 6'0" at best and possibly a bit under. Maybe not 5'11" flat though.
RisingForce said on 9/Dec/08
No way is he 6'1".
Hugh said on 9/Dec/08
Might be 6ft1 on a good day.
RisingForce said on 7/Dec/08
Keitel is slouching too. He is standing very casually with his hands in his posture, neck down(note how it seems he has almost no neck) and his legs are at an angle meaning he could be bending his knees. Many people say Keitel is now 5'7" flat in his late 60's, in fact many people thought that was his peak height.

Cage is in no way 6'1". 6'0" max.
Jay said on 5/Dec/08
He's definitely at least 6-feet, but 6'1" would be a better assessment.
RisingForce said on 3/Dec/08
4" max taller than Harvey Keitel here.
Click Here

Both are slouching. If Keitel is 5'7.5" then Cage looks 5'11.5" at best there. I believe Keitel was 5-8 peak but in his late 60's he's probably lost a little height.
RisingForce said on 2/Dec/08

Sizemore is also a little closer to the camera so they both could seem about 5'11" in that picture, Cage is slouching a bit too. I don't think Sizemore is any more likely to wear lifts than Cage though. Cage is often seen in very suspicious shoes.

I'd still guess 5'11" or 5'11.5" as most likely. 6'0" is reasonable too though. He certainly looks under 6 foot with Jim Carrey(both pictures) and Samuel L. Jackson.
runt said on 4/Nov/08
RisingForce, I don't see 2.5" between Cage and Carey, and I don't see a whole inch between Cage and Shields and I don't see 2 full inches between Cage and Connery. The rest of them I agree with.
RisingForce said on 4/Nov/08
I agree with dmeyer that the tallest he ever looks is 184/185 cm. He could very well be 6'0" even though or about 5'11.5".
dmeyer said on 3/Nov/08
he can look 182 in some movies 184 185 in others but when wearing 1.8 in heels i agree if he was 6 ft 1 then with boots and posture he will look aleast 6 ft 2 and he never does
RisingForce said on 3/Nov/08
Yeah he can appear 6'1" but then again considerinh his slim frame and big heeled boots if he can only sometimes appear 6'1" and never over that then I doubt he's anything over 6 foot max. If he wear 6'0.5" or 6'1" with those advantages he'd often appear 6'2".

I don't rule out 6 foot even but again my best estimate is a strong 5'11". 6 foot wouldn't surprise me at all though.
RisingForce said on 3/Nov/08

She's probably in heels. If she's in 3" heels and he's in about 1" dress shoes then he could be a legit 6'0" there. But then again there's also a chance that he's in 1.75" boots and she's heels a little under 3" putting him 5'11" there.

Either way the range seems to be a strong 5'11" or a weak 6'0". He really doesn't have good posture but then again he wears big heeled shoes. My best guess is a strong 5'11".
RisingForce said on 30/Oct/08
Anyone know what height Nicolas claims? I'd guess either 6'0" or 6'1" is what he claims.

6'0" is possible but I still say he's 5'11". I see almost no chance of 6'1" though.

No, but I assume he was wearing shoes for the shot. They wouldn't have him barefoot against the height chart for no reason. The real question is if the chart is accurate, if it is then 5'11" barefoot.

So you can say that about cage wearing shoes, but you can't say that about robert downey jr.'s mugshot?
