In all seriousness, yeah his proportions make him look short but there's no way he's 5'5 looking at his pics with Dave Grohl. He just has a big head and narrow shoulders. It's not even necessarily a short trait, many tall people have small shoulders like that.

No way that he is 5'10". I saw him in a video with a bunch of little children that were taller than him. (I'm sure that they used children in the video because of his small stature). I agree that he is likely 5'5" and no taller. I have seen somewhere that he has a 49" chest and 30" waist. This guy is just trying to make his small stature more herculean than it really is. I actually believe the 30" waist, but 49" chest, no way! He is known as the "small man with the big voice." And that is what he is, a small man who doesn't want his fans to know that he is small. Nothing wrong with being small.

He was 175 / 176 cm back in 1987 and he will always be. It's his height and he's never gonna give it up (btw, that song is 30 today, I'm starting to feel old...)

5ft 10.25in 178cm range would be acceptable.

5 ft 10 in
John said on 25/Jun/17
I think he is about 5ft 10.25in at most

People saying things like 5'5 should refrain from posting on here. You have absolutely no clue. And, in fact, a lot of people don't actually know their own true height and are really bad judge of heights - this can be seen from a lot of the comments on many listings on this webpage. I say to all these people, please first establish your own true height before you make completely off claims about other people's heights.

He is a small man. Look at the width of his shoulders and head size in comparison to the rest of his body. I would venture to say that he is 5'5 and no taller. He was known as the small man with a big voice.

Funny, but the picture you chose makes him look a lot like Martin Freeman, so, perhaps he's a hobbit!

yeah looking at photos of him on getty images, he doesn't look average height in any of them, no where near 5-10.. I'd give him 5'8 max

I think he is 5'9.5 compare with Paul Young.
Joe said on 20/Jul/08
don't base those two inches on a two inch quiff he had back in the day. he's 5'8.
Jake Is Back said on 9/May/08
176 cm maybe? 178 sems to be too high based on the comments.
anonymous said on 8/Apr/08
5`10? I thought he was closer to 5`9.

Yesterday I watched Pete Waterman's list of top 100 popsongs, half of them the crap he had penned himself, and I did see a couple of Astley's old videos. Despite his Elvis hair, shoulderpads and chunky shoes, he looked shortish in all of them. Unless all the girls in his vids were supertall...
leonari said on 6/Sep/07
5'10" is definately off ROb. Downgrade??
Anthony said on 5/Sep/07
He's got to be shorter. Astley was always described as being small in stature and journalists were often quoted as saying that his voice conflicted with his small image.
Franco said on 30/Apr/07
i saw this guy in the 90's too, he actually looks 5'9 tops (with shoes), so i agree with glenn, maybe 5'8 barefooted.
Glenn said on 4/Dec/06
I think I saw him in 1990.5-8 tops.
Leung said on 3/Dec/06
This guy looks nowhere near 5’10”. I would say he is closer to 5’7”.
Evanna said on 12/Oct/06
I really have doubts about this listing. Sure, I was only a kid when he was big, but my cousin was a huge fan of him and she had like piles of his posters, articles cut out from magazines (no fan-sites back in those days!) and the journalists always described him as a small guy with big voice. I also remember that they mentioned that he was some kind of natural phenomenon because he had four voice strings instead of regular two. Anyway, I'd say he's about 5'7".
TNTinCA said on 11/Oct/06
I have to somewhat agree with the previous poster. You can check out his videos on youtube and I don't think he is taller than 5'9". 5'10" is possible. He may have had tall models in his videos.
Shory McShortster said on 22/Nov/05
Is he really this tall? 5'10"???
I remember seeing him in videos as a youngster and he seemed to be much shorter. Perhaps it was just an illusion from his videos... Is there anyone who has true confirmation as to his true stature?
[Editor Rob: this was best guess I could get on him...his hairstyle certainly made him appear a bit more]
