He was taller than 6ft2 listed William Hurt,so either Hurt wasn't 6ft2 or Raul was over 6ft2?

Didn’t look quite 8 inches taller than Al Pacino in The Panic At Needle Park in my opinion, I watched that film today. Personally I don’t see Al over 5’6 at any point of life so it’s interesting, perhaps footwear and posture contributed to the difference looking smaller than 8 inches. But he did indeed tower over Al.

i thought 187-188 range

Julia could look a strong 6ft2 at times also
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/17
Richard, I think 189cm is arguable for Connery, Cusack, Affleck and most probable for Freeman. Hackman's trickier. He could really vary sometimes 187cm other times 189cm so 188cm is probably more than fair. Caine I would say more than likely was closer to 187cm

Similar height than Gene Hackman,Morgan Freeman, Sean Connery,Michael Caine,Ben Afleck,John Cusack...

These guys in peak were range 187-189cm

In the movie presumed innocent clearly you can see that Julia is taller than Harrison Ford too.

And in the Addams Family he was taller than Lloyd ( 6'1 in peak)

s 6'2.25 possible? because he did look to edge William Hurt out in Kiss of the Spider Woman

Might've lost a fraction at the end, Rob?
Editor Rob: possibly a fraction by time of death, but not anything like an inch.

He was a fantastic and great actor. In my opinion he was a solid 188 cm (6'2) because Christopher Lloyd was 6 feet and if you see Addams Family movies Lloyd is shorter than Raul. So, if Christopher was around 183-185cm ( maybe 6 feet) Raul not less 188 cm (6'2)

Yes, Christopher Lloyd (6 feet) was hunched over playing Fester Addams but Raul Julia made him look very small in that Addams Family movie. He was at least 4 inches taller than him in that movie.

I'm inclined to say he was 6'3. With 6'2 as the absolute minimum
Chris said on 26/Mar/17
He absolutely towers over Christopher Lloyd (6 feet) in the Addams Family.

I have no doubts he was over 6'2. I think he looked more 6'3

he was tall looked very big next to 5 6 mel gibson and even still big in Rookie.
was huge in that awful street fighter flick but had like 60 pounds of costume so didnt count for much.
Id say 6 2 prime maybe 6 1 later on.

Could pass for 189cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jan/15
Both Hurt and Julia were 6ft2

Great photo , one of the best actors IMO , even in bad movies like Street Fighter you still enjoy him.
jtm said on 11/Dec/14
that's because hurt was never 6'2.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Dec/14
Oh yeah the Addams Family, of course!! I can't remember how he fared next to Chris Lloyd though. In Kiss of Spider Woman he really could look 189 with Hurt.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Oct/14
Oh I forgot, you don't mention plays do you? Try Kiss of the Spider Woman, Mack the Knife, One from the Heart, Tequila Sunrise, Tempest? Definitely nothing under 6 ft 2. If anything he edged out William Hurt slightly. He looked proportionally similar to Ben Affleck.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Oct/14
Rob can you add Kiss of the Spider Woman, Mack the Knife, Where's Charley?, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Tequila Sunrise and Tempest? Definitely nothing under 6 ft 2. If anything he edged out William Hurt slightly. He looked proportionally similar to Ben Affleck.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jan/14
This is bang on
the shredder said on 20/Nov/13
Rob , not saying he could not have been 6'1 but if so than William Hurt is 6'0.5 and Al Pacino was 5'5 .
the shredder said on 17/Nov/13
Rob , when was he ever described 6'1 ?
[Editor Rob: in some archive newspapers around time of his death, Like this]
the shredder said on 13/Nov/13
Thanks Rob , funny I use to think he was only about 6'1 max because G said he looked that lol , but for a while I have been thinking easy 6'2 because of how he adds next to people.
the shredder said on 12/Nov/13
Rob , check it out , Raul had to be 6'2 or even 6'2.5 , he edged Hurt out , both barefoot here.

[Editor Rob: I watched a few clips of him just now and 6ft 2 is probably reasonable for him]
the shredder said on 11/Nov/13
Rob , this guy seemed at least 6'2 in films ... He towered over Van Damme , Mel Gibson and even edged out William Hurt ... 6'2.5 .
Dom said on 4/Jan/13
He looked like he had nearly 2 inches on Harrison Ford in Presumed Innocent back in 1990, this was when Ford was still in 184/185 range. I think 189 is more likely for Julia at the very least 188.
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 9/Jun/11
Yeah he was clearly taller than Cristopher Lloyd in the Addams Family movies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jun/11
Would 6ft2 be better, Rob?
the shredder said on 10/May/11
Rob , Raul was clearly taller , theres even pics of them were Raul looks slightly taller ... I must say though , I was watching The Addams Family recently and he was in heels ... If he did wear heels then I can buy 6'1.5 , If normal footwear then 6'2.5 , He really can pull off 6'2.5 !
the shredder said on 5/May/11
Rob , this height seems low ... He is taller then William Hurt in Kiss of the Spider Women and pics ... This guy really can seem 6'3 ... I think he was more like 189cm ?

[Editor Rob: maybe they were very close in height in that movie, enough that you could say both were 6ft 2...]
Alex said on 19/Dec/08
He was a very tall man, but he was one of those types who didn't immediately look tall. His passing was quite a shock way back in late '94.
Hugh said on 29/Aug/08
6ft2 was his height. He was quite tall.
GSP said on 26/Feb/08
Would love to see the pic. Looks a solid 2 inches on harrison ford. I was thinking 6'2-3.
glenn said on 10/Feb/08
i have to post my pic with him one day.
AshnarLynx said on 8/Feb/08
In certain movies he looked even 6'3.
Zedrick said on 18/Jan/08
When he plays Gomez in the Addam's Family, he looks more around 5' 9"-5' 10", but I guess looks can be deceiving.
gton said on 16/Dec/07
6-2 i believe his height 2 b great actor one of the best rest in peace R.Julia
Austrian said on 18/May/07
yea, he was surprisingly tall
Anonymous said on 21/Oct/06
Seemed exactly the same height of 6'2 William Hurt in "Kiss of The Spider Woman"
Glenn said on 15/Oct/06
Wow.I dont remember him being that tall.I thought 6ft.mustve had a slouch.
Anthony said on 15/Oct/06
Christopher Lloyd is 6'0.5. He was mde to look hunchbacked when he played Uncle Fester, which is why he appeared to be smaller in comparison to Julia.
Anthony said on 15/Oct/06
I think 6'2 is more accurate. He really did look tall as Gomez. I watched both movies last night.
trueheight said on 7/Jul/06
He made 5'11 christopher lloyd look quite short in the Addam's Family films, so this looks accurate
sam said on 3/Jun/06
Don't think so. He was 6' 0.5"
