How tall was Ray Liotta

Ray Liotta's Height

5ft 11 ½ (181.6 cm)

American actor best remembered for roles in classic films like Goodfellas, Copland, No Escape and Field of Dreams. Speaking to UGO about Narc, he once commented: "I used a lot of makeup under my eyes to just show a tired kind of guy. We added shoulder pads, lifts in my shoes because the character is named Henry Oak. A big, bruising guy.". As for his height, he said in an edition of The Virginian Pilot in 1994: "Hey, I'm 6 feet."...

Ray Liotta would be 68 if he were alive RIP. I would say he has been 5'11 since he turned 55 years old. He could have been 5'11.75 when he was 20/21 years old. By the time he turned 66 he was probably 5'10.7. No way is it legit to act like people don't shrink over time. Denzel Washington is a prime example he was probably 6'1 when he was 30-39 but at 67/68 he's 5'11.8 etc.

easy 3 or 4 inches taller than stallone but he's really a terrible guy to compare with.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/23
Gerald, I might just give the edge to Ray but it's a tough one really...

5ft11¾ mark for both could be argued.
Gerald S said on 21/May/23
Rob, who might have had the edge out of a peak Alec Baldwin and a peak Ray Liotta?
goodluck said on 26/Mar/23
Rewatched the movie Copland last night and thought of Ray. He was a brilliant actor and looked a solid two inches taller than Stallone (who was in flip flops in the scene).

I saw Ray in person back in 2010. He was standing outside a storefront in Santa Monica, looking like he had just stepped out of a movie. He struck me as tall. Seemed about an inch taller than me. I am 5'10.25. I think his listing is fair.
Maahin Chowdhury said on 18/Nov/22
He looked a strong 5’11 in Goodfellas next to De Niro and Pesci. He also voiced Tommy Vercetti in GTA Vice City.

@ Alan McTavish,

Agree, never saw 6'0. 5'11ish
Alan mctavish said on 29/Sep/22
Rip ray liotta. Ray was a great actor but i never saw him as being 6ft tall. I had him at 5'10"05 peak.
The Batman 97808 said on 27/Aug/22
Either he needs a downgrade or Sigourney Weaver needs an upgrade because she looked an inch taller than him in Heartbreakers.
Tommy Vercetti said on 12/Jun/22
He was wonderful actor but Hollywood film industry didn’t give him an enough chance to be one of the bests ever.But still he is legend.R.I.P
Sinclair said on 3/Jun/22
Liotta understandably looked a comfortable 6’1” in Narc, thanks to footwear inflation. Yet, I could not argue with 5’11.5”.

I heard about Ray in the cab home with my little ginger kittens yesterday, and I yelled out, “NO!”

I was always pleased when he turned up in a film that I was watching. He was such a great actor, giving his all to each and every role. So, so sad….
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/May/22
What a terrible shock to hear about Ray’s premature demise.🥲

(18th December, 1954 - 26th May, 2022)

Great actor
Matt99 said on 26/May/22
RIP Ray, unforgettable performance in goodfellas!
JayJay said on 26/May/22
Firstly, R.I.P. Liotta, you will be missed.

Secondly, the listing and Ray’s claim are very optimistic.

You can see pics of Liotta at a premiere with 5’10 1/2” Brad Pitt… and Liotta consistently looks an inch shorter.

5’ 9 1/2” for Ray, a remarkable talent, especially in Scorcese’s iconic Goodfellas.

Watching goodfellad again the other night, good film but perhaps overated. Anyway, Ray looks close to 6 foot in it. He had 2-3 inches on 5'9 de niro. 5'11.5 peak is fair.
Impala 64 said on 12/Aug/21
peak : 183 cm
now : 180.5 cm
Slim 6'1.5 said on 3/Jun/21
Needs a peak and current

He’s kinda old now

181.5-182 for peak
slim 6'1 said on 13/Feb/21
182 for peak
180 current

He had Depp by a few inches in blow
Rising174cm said on 4/Jan/21
5'11.5" seems spot on for his peak as he could look 6' at times, but 5'11" at other times. However, he's looked more like 5'11" since he was around 60 so at 66, I doubt he's above 5'11" flat.
stiggles said on 14/Nov/20
5ft 10.. maybe half inch more..
Bobbylong said on 20/Oct/20
I’m 5’10.75. I have a picture with Ray. I was slightly taller. It was in 2012. So 5’10.5 for Ray... 100%
JustJohnny said on 25/Sep/20
More like 5’10.5”. Terrific actor, not a tall guy.
Dmeyer said on 12/Aug/20
By Killing me ... He looks no less than 181cm as both première he has 1cm less shoes and yet looks similar to Pitt who stands as tall as possible
Keith Bacchus said on 9/Jun/20
6 foot spot on
Bwk said on 8/Jun/20
5'11.75" peak is possible.
Mark Allan said on 20/May/20
Intimidating guy nobody would want to get on wrong side of him just like Joe Pesci
Richie said on 24/Apr/20
Liotta always appeared in the 6' range, he had three inches on Stallone in Copland and roughly the same over DeNiro in Goodfellas.
Jtm said on 11/Apr/20
there is a interesting picture posted on chevy chase's page back in 2015.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/20
6ft peak I don’t think is too unreasonable
Bwk said on 14/Mar/20
@Rob Did you ever have Liotta listed at 6'0" at some point, and do you think there's a possibility at all he's 6 feet even atleast in his prime?
Editor Rob
I am not sure about that, but he's been on this mark for a long time.
Dmeyer said on 10/Feb/20

183cm isn’t completely out of the question peak
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Dec/19
🎂🎁🎈📺 Happy Birthday Ray! 📺🎈🎁🎂

Today is the 65th Birthday of Ray Liotta. Have a great time, Ray!

My Birthday guess is 5ft11.5, but I don't doubt that he peaked at 6ft. 😉

Rory said on 5/Oct/19
I've seen him up close recently and I think he's minimum 5ft11. I think 5ft11-11.5 range today, I'd go for 181 about and peak perhaps 182. Doesn't look under 5ft11 today, 11.5 or 11.75 peak I'd say.
Rising174cm said on 16/Mar/19
Didn't Frank2 also say Liotta was 5'11" at other times? I use to believe Ray was 6', but this 5'11.5" listing is much better for his peak, imo. He looked quite tall in Narc because he was supposed to as quoted above and in Goodfellas because De Niro was lucky to hit 5'9" and Pesci lucky to hit 5'3". But Ray is now 64 and 5'11" flat is likely, imo.
Greg99 said on 14/Dec/18
my view of Frank2's opinion (that Liotta is 6') is that it's generally gold, and he apparently met Liotta. Liotta can look huge on screen, and I think about 6' is correct.
Rory said on 25/Nov/18
In the film Something wild he looks 1.5 inches shorter than Jeff Daniels who in the scene is barefoot whilst Liotta is wearing 1.5-2 inch boots.
Nik said on 8/Nov/18
I like his comment "Hey, I'm 6 feet."!
Markey said on 7/Nov/18
Can't really give him more than 5'11", especially seeing him in scenes with 5'6" Jessica Biel in Powder Blue.

His poofy hair I think is slightly misleading.
MAD SAM said on 19/Oct/18
That’s a typical 5’11.5” / 181.5 cm guy right there
Taxi Driver 101 said on 26/Jul/18
I do think he was a typical 6 footer back in the day. That’s what he looked in Goodfellas. Probably more close to 5’11 nowadays though, he’s in his 60s after all.
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Jun/18
He could look around 6', but he can look just 5'11" these days so I'd say a 182 cm peak and 181 cm current listing couldn't be far wrong.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/18
He looked more than 1in shorter than Costner but you could argue 186cm for Kevin
berta said on 3/Apr/18
182 in prime maybe shorter today
Junior Hernandez said on 11/Feb/18
Sadly Ray was never 6'0 or 5'11.75" next to a peak Kevin Costner.
Smiles03 said on 10/Feb/18
6'0 back in the day
Junior said on 10/Nov/17
5'11-5'11.1" at most for Ray today.
Bwk said on 5/Nov/17
I think he was definitely 6'0" in his prime. He looked 6'0" in Goodfellas in my opinion, but he probably is around the 5'11" mark today.
Headman said on 1/Oct/17
What would you say his head size is, Rob?

Seems to be pretty big!
Editor Rob
wouldn't have said huge or anything, but nearly 9.5? That might be possible.
Slim said on 3/Sep/17
51175 would be good for peak and 51125 today.
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Sep/17
@Rampage: That's what I was thinking. Either keep his height as peak and give him 5'11" today or give him the solid 182 cm peak and a 181 cm current, but I do think he's into peak height territory either way and closer to 5'11" than 6 feet these days.

Not full pics unfortunately, but not looking anywhere near 3" taller than a 5'8.5"-5'8.75" Sly Stallone in 2013: Click Here Click Here Sly had flat shoes as well: Click Here

Bad posture with 5'8.25"-5'8.5" Jeremy Renner, but is Ray really going to have 8 cm on Renner? Click Here

Again, we see Liotta has a habit of slouching badly, but 6'0.5"-6'1" Carl Weathers does not exactly stand like Stallone: Click Here Liotta looks more a 5'11" man with Carl, imo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Aug/17
Rob, could he be 5ft11 today?
Editor Rob
he is starting to look around that mark.
Sonnecker said on 19/Jul/17
Full 182 cm in my opinion, 5'11.75". Maybe 183 years ago, but I don't think he has lost something arguable at 60...
Slim 181 cm said on 7/Jul/17
@shiva, agreed on 5'11.5 as he looked 3 inches taller than Johnny Depp in blow(I suspect Johnnys only 5'8.5)
shiva 181 cms said on 23/May/17
A 181-2 cms guy could look 6' at times
At his peak he looked more handsome than brad Pitt
Sandy Cowell said on 20/May/17
This Ray guy is one brilliant actor! I have at LEAST 9 of his films, probably far in access of; more 'research' is needed on that front!
Anyway, he seems a good 6ft or just under in his heyday, and not much less now!
He's a true classic and - wait for it! I remember his name popping up at the beginning of a 'Little House on the Prairie' episode! Yes, really! I was as surprised as you!
I will fill his box with 5ft11- and-three-quarters!
RisingForce said on 15/Apr/17
His lifts were obvious in Narc, but he did seem really big in them: Click Here And if Jason Patric is actually 5'9.5" then Ray can look at least 6 feet at the premiere here: Click Here I'm not sure yet if he was 182 or 183 cm, he could look either. I think he's shrunk a little by this point.
Dan said on 19/Mar/17
Probably 5'10. In movies they were lifts or shoes with a nice heal. So my guess is 5'10. After watching blow he didn't look much taller than johnny drop who I believe isn't taller than 5'9. Actors always lie about their height. Sometimes they even get taller with popularity lol
Giorgi said on 11/Jan/17
Absolutely. I find it rather pathetic that most celebrities don't realize how dull it sounds whenever they declare "I'm six feet." Wouldn't it be cooler if you say, "I'm five-eleven"? ;)
Giorgi said on 9/Jan/17
Rob, intriguing question: If you were 182 cm tall, would you claim six feet? At least on certain occasions ;))
Editor Rob
Giorgi, I think I'd have said 'almost 6ft' if talking in feet/inches, but probably not claim the actual six foot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Nov/16
@S.J.H: Those figures look believable. I thought Costner could look 2in taller than Liotta at times. He looked 186-187cm range if Ray was 182-183cm.
S.J.H said on 6/Nov/16
Ray Liotta peak 5'11.75 and kevin costner could be 6'1.25 peak. Nowadays Liotta look right at 5'11.5 and costner 6'0.75
S.J.H said on 25/Oct/16
Ray look at least 2cm taller than patrick wilson in Stretch. Wilson need to be downgrade at 180cm 5'11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/16
Rob, could that potentially be his peak?
Editor Rob
at times I think he can look 5ft 11.5 or close to 6ft, I'm not as convinced a full six footer though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Aug/16
Rob, did you have him at 6ft originally?
Editor Rob
I think he was on his claim for a while.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Aug/16
Looked over 3in shorter than Jeff Daniels in Something Wild who many say wasn't a full 6ft3 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/16
Looked a good 3in taller than DeNiro and looked at least 6ft but with Sorvino barely 5ft11...strange
6 foot on a good day said on 19/Jul/16
Michael Shannon is wearing 3 inch heels in Iceman not to say Ray isn't either! Not a good film to make height judgements on
Peter 179cm said on 12/Jul/16
In The Iceman,Shannon had a solid 10cm on him,maybe even 11 so if he's 192,then Liotta comes in at about 181-182cm which makes this listing pretty much valid.
CS said on 1/Jun/16
Was he recently downgraded?
Editor Rob
I can't remember when I put him on 11.5, a while back
Ice said on 31/May/16
182 cm in Goodfellas
Mr. Kaplan said on 28/Apr/16
He's 5'11" and has always been. Stallone was never taller than 5'8" and neither was De Niro.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/16
Rob, where would Ray measure in his prime?

A) 185cm/183cm
B) 184.5cm/182.5cm
C) 184cm/182cm
D) 183.5cm/181.5cm
E) 183cm/181cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/16
6ft in the 80's-90's is possible. Looked 3in taller than DeNiro (most likely still 5ft9)
richie said on 5/Mar/16
@Greg..I think DeCaprio is a weak 5'11" which is why Liotta had a good inch on him
ElDuderino said on 18/Dec/15
looked a solid six feet in goodfellas
richie said on 12/Dec/15
Liotta is a strong 6 foot, no way is he 5'11", watch Copland, he had a good 3 inches on Stallone who himself is 5'9" so anything less than 6' doesn't read true....
ElDuderino said on 12/Dec/15
Rob, you should add Liotta as 6' for peak height, because there is no way in hell that he is below six feet in goodfellas. He looks six feet on the spot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
Baldwin - Strong 5ft11
Liotta - Weak 6ft

Probably not an awful lot between them but I think Baldwin wears lifts to get closer to 6ft+ dudes. In Goodfellas Liotta looks right between DeNiro (5ft9) and Paul Sorvino (6ft2½-3).
Sam said on 19/Aug/15
Haven't seen the film, here's the only shot of Liotta next to Baldwin...I'm guessing that Baldwin may have a terrain disadvantage here.
Click Here
I wouldn't think they're be much between Baldwin and Liotta on even footing. If anything I get the impression Liotta might be a smidge taller, would be really surprised if he was 2 inches shorter.
RighteousPeach said on 5/Aug/15
@an anonymous peach
Why the Hell would he add GTA to his credits? The entire objective of this site is to categorize people by their heights, and -- while he may've lent his voice to the game -- he never appeared in the game physically, making it an entirely irrelevant detail.
Spencer said on 18/Jun/15
He looks just about 6 ft in Goodfellas. Maybe 6 feet in the morning and a fraction under during the day.
an anonymous peach said on 10/Jun/15
Can you add Grand Theft Auto Vice City to his credits? I know it's a video game, but still.

With that aside, De Niro was really struggling to look 5ft 9 when standing next to him in Goodfellas
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/May/15
I think Liotta peaked at 6ft while Baldwin may have been a fraction over 5ft11.
Steve said on 9/May/15
Well, Liotta was shorter than Baldwin. Like I've said, watch the movie.
Lorne??? said on 8/May/15
Liotta woulda edged out Baldwin. Alec I think was likely 5'11.25, Ray was 11.5-11.75, so he'd have edged him out.(IMHO).
Steve said on 6/May/15
Not in the movie. Not unless you have your tv upside down.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/15
Liotta looks 2in taller than Baldwin!
Steve said on 4/May/15
Rampage, watch the movie. You tell me. In every shot, Liotta is shorter.
Arch Stanton said on 3/May/15

You sure about that, Steve?
Steve said on 2/May/15
Stallone is short. So naturally Liotta would appear taller.
richie said on 1/May/15
Ray Liotta is a solid 6', watch the opening scene in the movie "Copland", he towers Stallone by a good 3 inches so anything less than 6' doesn't read true....
Steve said on 1/May/15
In Goodfellas he's acting with short actors.

Watch the movie The Last Shot. He's two inches shorter than Alec Baldwin. And Baldwin isn't wearing lifts.

Liotta is obviously shorter than Kevin Costner. Click Here

And here he's shorter than Brad Pitt. Click Here

And here. Click Here

And here Liotta is only slightly taller than Stallone and several inches shorter than 6'2" Gerard Butler. Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 30/Apr/15
Nah not that short Steve, this guy could pull of 6 ft in films like Goodfellas.
Steve said on 29/Apr/15
I believe Liotta is no more than 5'10". He was two inches shorter than Alec Baldwin in The Last Shot.
So unless Baldwin is close to 6'2" which he isn't, no way can Liotta be anywhere close to being 6' tall. Watch the movie. You tell me. By the way, it's an extremely funny movie.
Sam said on 29/Apr/15
IMO, I'd think Liotta would have had a fraction over Alec Baldwin, more of a near six foot impression, but I could be wrong.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/15
He always gave a taller impression, especially in Cop Land and Goodfellas.
I thought he was like 6ft2!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Mar/15
If DeNiro was still 5ft9 in the early 90's then Liotta could very well have been 6ft.
james said on 21/Mar/15

HajKew said on 15/Dec/14
Ray Liotta is NO WAY 5'11.

Back in 1990 my sister and I went to the Cannes Film festival and we met Mr. Liotta. I stand 6'2 barefoot and my sister 5'8, and he had a solid 4 inches on her. Definitely 182-183 range.
Danimal said on 7/Dec/14
Rob, there is a pic of Ray and James Gandolfini, where Gandolfini has close to 2" on Ray.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/14
Could be 5ft11¼(181cm) today
cole said on 28/Sep/14
In Goodfellas he looked pretty much 6ft with De Niro. He could have been just a fraction shy of the mark in his prime, now he can look just a fraction over 5'11. 5'11.75 peak and 5'11.25 now is my guess.
Dmeyer said on 11/Jul/14
One thing dosnt lié is the built he has one of a 182-3cm Guy pitt has one of 179-180cm

Looked 6ft in goodfellas
thedude said on 24/Jan/14
rob what do you think of pictures from the last oscars that show Pitt a good inch taller than Liotta? even with lifts it shouldnt make him taller than liotta....
Mr. Kaplan said on 18/Jan/14
He's 5'11". John Travolta is a legit 6-foot flat and he's taller than him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/13
Liotta is about 6ft, give or take. Doubt he's 5ft11 flat
Jimmy said on 3/Nov/13
Can't possibly be 6ft. Paul Sorvino (6ft2) towers over him in Goodfellas
Arch Stanton said on 6/Oct/13
Definitely looks 6 ft next to De Niro in Goodfellas.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Oct/13
He does look about 6 ft in Goodfellas.
Sain t said on 3/Sep/13
Ray and Seth in Observe and Report looked about the same. Strong 5'11" for Seth and weak 6' for Ray.
richie said on 30/Aug/13
Ray must be a good 6',he had about 3 inches on Stallone in Copland and was also taller than 5'11" Robert Patrick. I think it would be ridiculous to suggest that he was
any shorter than a legit 6.
richie said on 29/Aug/13
Always thought Liotta was over 6', certainly had 3 inches on Stallone in Copland and taller than 5'11' Robert Patrick. A solid 6' during the 90's.
5'7.84549498719 said on 27/Jul/13
If he's almost 6', how come Paul Sorvino looked so much taller than Ray in "Goodfellas"?
Dmeyer said on 31/Dec/12
When Pitt looks 0.5 in taller than liotta it is because hé has 0.4-0.5 in more shoes and better posture , but when liotta stands tall hé is as tall as pitt in bigger footwear , hé isnt 5'11 flat today maybe 5'11.25 and solid 182cm peak like 5'11.5-11.75
ddddd said on 2/Dec/12
theres a senator he fakes he is and they say hes 5'6 but theres a picture of him with somenoe thats 6'1 and hes standing next to him and you can tell hes about an inch shorter, so id say 6 foot. oh the guys name is john boehner
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/12
He was 3in taller than DeNiro in Goodfellas. 6ft is possible. In Narc he was easily 6ft2 or so in those lifts.

At peak very possibly 6 ft at 1 pm

If he's this tall what was that fan thinking when they said he was only 5'9? Some people have no clue about heights.

He looked huge in Narc, he might be 5ft 11.75in (1.82 m).
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
lol. Mr R upgrade 6'4 dead on jared padalecki at 6'5 and downgrade tons of actors.. but i agree ray is under 5'11, at 5'10.75 or 5'10.5 john travolta looks the same as him.
Vinny said on 1/Oct/11
I guess 6' and I'm sure he's a nice guy, but I wouldn't want to tick him off!
Mr. Kaplan said on 25/Sep/11
He's shorter than Travolta and 5'11".
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Sep/11
Ok rob! But do you know him? Some people that worked with him said 188, other people crazy heights like 194 or at least 195! He claims 190 because here in italy we have the metric system! Some people said he also had shoes, like cowboy boots! I thin that a legit 188-189 man with big shoes can look a giant. Do you agree?
Editor Rob
with boots in that range they're going to look quite tall, but I don't really know him.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 17/Sep/11
how tall do you think Garko is, ROB?
Editor Rob
not seen much else to compare against
Mr. R said on 30/Aug/11
Ray is just below 5-11. I saw him in Hollywood.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 29/Aug/11
Ok! But he was towered by garko who claims to be 190 but is more like 189!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 28/Aug/11
Who? Vincent Spano? Garko? Or Liotta? Rob?
Editor Rob
ANDREA[ITA] said on 27/Aug/11
rob, how much do you think Vincent Spano is? On wireimages there are some pics of him with Ray Liotta and he looks 2 cms taller than Ray! In the web he's listed 6'2 but in an italian movie he looked almost 4 inches shorter than 189 Gabriel Garko!
Editor Rob
maybe he's not over 6ft 1
dmeyer said on 31/Jul/11
to me this guy is about 6ft 5 ft 11.5 at the very least

My parents are 5'7 and 5'4 and my brother somehow got to 6'1. I'm 5'9.5 and 18 years old...will I reach at least 5'11.5 like Liotta?
I was that same height at 18, but I grew to 5'11.5 during my first year of college

this height is fine. he looked about 3 inches shorter than 6'3" jeff daniels in something wild and ray liotta was in cowboy boots.
Matt said on 16/Mar/11
@Robert Jungitsch - He would be shorter than Danny Glover if he was anything between 6' 2.9'' and non existant, why does that automatically make him 5' 11'' lol
Bon_ said on 12/Feb/11
Maybe 5'11.75
Bon_ said on 10/Feb/11
Liotta is a legit 6 ft. Come on, Rob, you don't have to put him at 5'11.5 just because he doesn't earn your benefit of the doubt.
Robert Jungnitsch said on 9/Jan/11
I always thought Ray Liotta was 5'11'' since he's shorter than Danny Glover who's 6'3''.
Spence said on 16/Nov/10
I think he is just below 6 feet..this is spot on
Hugh 190cm said on 5/Jun/09
1 inch taller than Alec Baldwin in the West Wing.

liotta looks about 5'11 next to paul sorvino: Click Here
TELLEM said on 21/May/09
i'd put him at 5'11.5 aswell.
LT said on 20/May/09
he had about 2.5-3 inches on stallone in cop land, i have it on right now, its actually a good scene for measuring stallone because he's wearing sandals (near the beginning, stallone is opening a parking meeter to get quarters for pinball) at 4 minutes and 34 seconds they stand almost level to eachother, liotta is wearing sneakers which could contain lifts, but i doubt it as stallone likely wouldent allow anybody to be any taller than him on camera than they have to be, i agree to 5'11.5" for liotta, and between 5'8" and 5'9" for stallone.
interesting fact about this movie, stallone put on about 40 pounds of fat intentionally to look more pathetic for the role, perhaps this is also the reason we see him without his trademark lifts
Hugh 190cm said on 20/May/09
Looked 6ft1 in GoodFellas. I'd say 183cm-184cm.
Daii said on 22/Apr/09
I thought he looked a 6 foot guy in Wild Hogs, but he probably had some kind of motorcycle boot on giving a good 2 inch lift. Probably a 5'11 guy though
TED IN CT said on 20/Apr/09
In "Observe and Report" - he has about 1 + 1/2 inches on Rogen . Rogen is wearing police boots which easily give him an extra inch. If we put Rogen at 5'10 , Liotta is at least 6 foot
Anonymous said on 14/Apr/09
Certainly at least 6ft when Goodfellas was made.
RisingForce said on 10/Apr/09
5'9.5" is fair for the Liotta clip leonari, but a 5'10"+ guy looking 5'9.5" with so many factors isn't that surprising to me.

But it seems that the whole time Danimal was referring to another clip in Cop Land instead of the one we're referring to. I'm not sure which clip that is though.
bam said on 4/Apr/09
rob the man is an inch taller than seth rogen.
Big King said on 2/Apr/09
Liotta was 5 inches shorter than Kevin Durand.
leonari said on 1/Apr/09
Rising: you are right never in the world 4 inches but I certainly see at least 2.5 and a max of 3 inches on that clip Copland beginning clip. Sly purposely has bad posture cause he plays to be drunk but Liota is far from streching out...Plus: Sly is always closer to the camera than Liotta in that clip and you know I am a 5'10 believer but he looks at the very most 5'9.5" if Liotta is close to 6 feet. What do you say?
RisingForce said on 18/Mar/09
No it's not impossible James, but I never understood why some people just assume certain celebs have shrunk when there's nothing to suggest they have.
RisingForce said on 23/Feb/09
There's no way that was 4" on Sly. Sly's head was not around his eye level, it was half way between his eyebrows to the top of his head.
Danimal said on 21/Feb/09
bam says on 21/Feb/09
5'11.75 is most accurate. He can look similar in height to guys like tim allen, but straightened out, he is 6ft or a smidgen under. Plus he totally towered deniro.

He also totally towered Stallone in Copland by 4" both wearing sandals/slippers on street level.

no taller than 5'11", most likely 5'10", just watch Smokin' aces when he's walking beside ryan Reynolds.
RisingForce said on 24/Dec/08
Travolta is a strong 6-0, maybe 6-0.25 and John could have had a slight footwear advantage.

If he's under 5-11.5 then Robert Duvall is under 5-8. He was much taller than Jason Patric in premiere pictures as well.
TELLEM said on 23/Dec/08
thats a movie. look at them at the premieres, travolta is taller than liotta. rob has this guy nailed
RisingForce said on 23/Dec/08
He was taller than Travolta in Wild Hogs. In that picture they're both slouching but Ray looks 1/4 or half an inch shorter.

He's 6 foot flat, he usually looks it. Either that or Sigourney Weaver is closer to 5-10 than 5-11.

RisingForce said on 22/Dec/08
Tellem, can't you see that Tim Allen is clearly closer to the camera?

Look at these pictures that have been posted on this page.

If Robert Duvall is 5-8.5 as he's listed here then Liotta looks 6-0 without a doubt.

If Sigourney Weaver is 5-11 then Ray Liotta easily looks 6-0 again.

RisingForce says on 8/Nov/08
Yeah especially in Raging Bull. He could look over the top of 5'4" joe Pesci's head even with Pesci's hair. In Taxi Driver he had massive heels though.

In Casino he still looked 5-9.5 easy. He had an inch on 5-8.5 Sharon Stone even when Stone seemed to have the footwear advantage. He also looked 7" max shorter than Chuck Wepener in 1997. I don't know if Chuck ahd lost any height though.

In NO WAY was Deniro taller than Sharon Stone in Casino. When Deniro introduces Sharon to Joe and his wife for the very first time, it is quite obvious who had the height advantage and it sure wasn't Bobby D.
TELLEM said on 13/Nov/08

Bob De Niro has lost height, thats obvious he's barely 5'8 or just a little over these days, its been like that for a while now too.

for some reason i think hes a little under 5'8...he was clearly much shorter than mike tyson

De Niro's height has hardly been confirmed though. You hear everything from 5'8" to 5'10" for him and there's plenty of evidence for either figure

There is not plenty of evidence of him looking 5'10".

In 1994 Virginian Pilot he said: "Hey, I'm 6 feet."...

Just bumping this quote because it was pretty far down the page. If he says 6 ft and looks it I see no reason to doubt it.
Hugh said on 10/Oct/08
Liotta might just be 6ft.
Hugh said on 8/Oct/08
I do not remember Ray being taller than Travolta. He must have been wearing lifts. He could be 6ft but he's shorter than Travolta. Travolta in my opinion is scraping 6ft1. He really did look the same height as Forest Whitaker.
RisingForce said on 6/Oct/08
He looked taller than 6 foot John Travolta and easily taller than 5'10.5" Tim Allen in Wild Hogs. Liotta is 6 feet like he claims.

I just watched NARC, and that's why I'm visiting the Liotta board right now. He really is quite tall in this one ! 187-188cm (6'2")-guy !

However, the 5'9-s**t is nonsense.

He's 182cm barefoot.
Gago said on 9/Apr/08
I met him, he had steve madden type of shoes and he looked 183-184, but 182 is possible also, because his hair gave him some boost.

Anonymous said on 16/Jul/07
he had a lot more height than deniro in goodfellas, deniro being around 5'9. i thought liotta was closet to 6'0.5-6'1. gives a big appearance, but he is over 50 now, so maybe he did lose a little height nowadays.

why isnt my post up here rob? liotta isnt least 5-11.

he is more than 5'8 he was level with travolta in wild hogs and he is supposidly 6'2 i say more like 6,0 at best, i would say liotta is 6 foot

i think Peter Fonda is at least 6'3

at least he was when he was younger
Anthony said on 1/Apr/07
Liotta wore big boots in "Wild Hogs" and looked an easy 6'2. He was noticably taller than Travolta and looked the same as 6'2 Peter Fonda. He's not under 5'11.5.
dmeyer said on 20/Feb/07
could be 6 ft to me 5'11.5 at the very lest
John Boom said on 19/Feb/07
Ha! I'm 6'3", Liotta is a shrimp. Actually the avg hieght is about 5'8" so he is not too bad, but someone thinks 6'1 is "huge". Has she ever watched basketball?

Editor Rob
Basil Brush was at least amusing, you ain't.
Anthony said on 22/Jan/07
While I wouldn't say 6'1 is huge, it ain't small in any sense of the word. A 6'1 is taller tha most people, and it isn't hard for a 6'1 guy to be mistaken for a 6'2 or even 6'3 guy. Heck, I have a friend who's dad I always thought was at least 6'4, until I finally asked her. I was shocked to find out he was only 6'1!

And back on tpic, Liotta is definitely 182-183. He can look 185 at times, such as in "Goodfellas".
Austrian said on 21/Jan/07
so a 6'1 guy is huge? LOL!

besides Liotta is a legitimate 5'11-6' guy
Anonymous said on 7/Dec/06
Well, Ray Liotta was eye to eye with Joseph Fiennes in a movie they made with Gretchen Mol (can't remember the name, dang), Though Fiennes looks the same height as Gwyneth Paltrow in Sheakspeare in love, and she was in flats, so if Gwyneth Paltrow is 5'9, they both are 5'9 too? my guess is that she would wear 5 cm lifts in some scenes that would make her look taller, like 1.80 (without showing her feet of course), I think Ray Liotta is indeed 5'11.5, and Joseph Fiennes is not 6', more like 5'11.
J. said on 23/Sep/06
One more "Identity"-related note, Liotta's character's height is listed as 6'0" on a prison ID form.
J. said on 23/Sep/06
As you can see with my previous posts of the day, I've been watching the movie "Identity". Height-wise, it's interesting. Liotta, looks a solid 5'11", next to John Cusack in their scenes together. That is if Cusack really is 6'2".
alex said on 17/Sep/06
Frank 2, when was ray liotta ever "skinny"? even in goodfellas I never would consider him "skinny". He's always looked average to husky in my opinion. Any pictures of skinny liotta? And 150 pounds is way off. if he was 5-11 and 150 pounds he'd be scarecrow. Which he definately isnt. If
Anthony said on 15/Sep/06
Nice, photos, Height Detective. In Liotta's defense, Sly is probably wearing the height enhancers he is so famous for.

Yes, as I pointed out he looked at least 6'1 in "Goodfellas". And as Frank2 pointed out, he was very thin at that time.

He is a tricky guy.16 years ago he looked 6-2 to me.of course in lifts.
sam said on 8/Sep/06
I've never doubted his 6' feet even claim.
Anthony said on 7/Sep/06
Well, if he says 6', then I guess he's 6'. He's an inch taller than Weaver in the pic I posted below, and if she's 5'11 these days, Ray's definitely 6'.
Editor Rob said on 7/Sep/06
In 1994 Virginian Pilot he said: "Hey, I'm 6 feet."...
Anthony said on 30/Aug/06
Ah, didn't know that. Doesn't make sense though since the real Henry Hill was only about 5'9 or shorter. Not to mention he wasn't portrayed as particularly dangerous in the movie. You sure it wasn't Pesci?
Felix said on 28/Aug/06
Anthony - Ray Liotta weard big lifts for Goodfellas too look bigger and more dangerous.

Ray looks about an inch taller than Sigourney Weaver here, who IMO was about 6' in her prime and not too much shorter today.

De Niro was 5'9 at his peak, and considering he was still relatively young when he did "Goodfellas" he was probably still there.
