So although I think of myself as a big guy, I guess, I'm not a BIG guy. I'm pretty tall, 6ft 3ins. I wouldn't know what I weigh, I can't remember. I always think, "Is it 121/2 stone?" Then I think, "No, it's 141/2 stone."

Rob, honestly if Weaver is still at 6ft2 then this guy was at least 6ft3! Watch Matrix

Rob, are you sure this guy isn't at least 6ft3?

He really makes Hugo look 6ft1 tops!

Not unimaginable he lost half inch. Hugh himself did seem an inch taller than Keanu around that time.

Just been watching him in Longmire, great show btw! Must have been a lot of tall actors in it though, as he looks average height in it haha

Hi Rob do you think it's also common for non American/British guys but native English speakers such as Australian to claim taller than they really are? I heard that Australia changed completely to metric back in 80s due to the government wanting to be in line with the rest of the World, though the older generations like Robert might still use imperial system.

Maybe it's honest mistake of converting or just rounding up?
Editor Rob
I think it's not unique to any countries, many people globally have inflated their height a little or a lot.

Certainly more than just half an inch between him and Hugo Weaving. Maybe the latter is a bit under 6ft2, Rob?

Maybe 6'2.75 peak, and 6'2.25 out of bed now. He looks at least a half inch shorter than Barry Sloan in season 6 IMO. I think his rugged physique and long face might make him look a little taller than he is. Love him as an actor though. Had a man-crush on him growing up watching Yellowthread Street.

Tall guy 189-189.5 cm range

Brandon if he's only 6ft1-2 then Hugo Weaving is 5ft11-6ft!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/17
Yeah a bit taller than Hugo
Brandon said on 15/Aug/16
Now im thinking more 6'2.75" peak and 6'2" current
Brandon said on 17/Jul/16
He seems to have some early height loss combined with poor posture. He looks 6'1"-6'2" on longmire. I would say 6'3" peak height and 6'2.5" current height.

In the first matrix he played an agent and he looked at least 6 foot 2. I believe he was taller than hugo weaving

Have watched all episodes. He never towers over the other men... like many 6'3" guys do. Do feel he is over 6'... could accept 6'2" max with his poor posture. Have heard him speak with his Aussie accent. It is a hoot.

This is a real tough one. Just started watching Longmire. He certainly looks like he has bad posture or a Kyphosis but if he really is anywhere near this height then there are some other tall actors in it also.

There are two Robert Taylor actors, one is American (born in 1911 and died in 1963) and the other one is Australian (born in 1963).

Yup Sam, he's now up. You're confusing this one with the classic actor Rick!! And he wasn't short either!
Sam said on 18/Dec/13
Rob, would you add the older Robert Taylor?
Rick said on 17/Dec/13
Robert Taylor was supposedly pretty short, so Barbara Stanwyck thought when she first met him. I always thought he was a little taller. He was pretty slim and natty, so this helped.
Steve said on 6/Dec/13
Star of TV's Longmire. I met him a few months back and this seems about right. I'm 6' 3" and we were pretty even in the height department.
Sam said on 14/Nov/13
I was surprised this wasn't a page for the classic Hollywood actor (though I know he wasn't 6'3"), not sure if I've heard of the Australian one.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Nov/13
Rob is Robert Taylor the classic Hollywood actor worth adding? He was a leading actor in films like Waterloo Bridge and Ivanhoe.
dickie d said on 14/Jan/11
looking at him in stills he seeme to be about 5'6'to 5'7' tops
Shadow2 said on 25/Dec/10
Amazing, two Robert Taylors! The "Aussie" one is a minimum 6'2", not necessarily a 6'3" due to him being taller than Hugo Weaving. I've worked with Hugo, he's 6'1" max, not the 6'2" often mentioned here. The "Hollywood" Taylor was 5'11.5", and looked it in films, such as 1954's "Rogue Cop" where 6'3" Steve Forrest played his brother.

There seems to be confusion over which Robert Taylor this page is referring to. The one that played Agent Jones in the Matrix is most definetly 6'3" at least, because he is visibly taller than Hugo Weaving, himself around 6'2".

Robert Taylor's height is 5 ft 11,5 in (182 cm) Robert Taylor the great movie star (1911-1969)
Steve said on 8/May/08
Robert Taylor from Ivanhoe fame was 5'11". He was not in "father knows best." He died in 1969.
Bob said on 6/Jan/08
His P.R. must still be on the payroll.....Robert taylor the actor was a "stump"...5'8 at the most
Russ said on 22/Oct/07
I can think of two Robert Taylors. One had dark hair and a slightly stocky build. He was in many Western movies back in the 40's and 50's. I beleive he had many other roles in the 30's. He looked to be 5' 9" to 5'11". But surely not 6'3". The other Robert Taylor was in "Father Knows Best, an old sitcom from the late 50's?. He looked to be 6' or maybe 6'1".

Who is this Robert Taylor, the one I know of was the one my grandmother loved more than any of the other actor in the thirties and forties, he was at best five eleven and a half, more likely five ten.

Editor Rob
Read the blurb at the top...
patrick said on 13/Apr/07
WHAT ROBERT TAYLOR ? Certainly not the great one, star of the late 30ies until fifties and dead in 67; This one was never 6'3!
