Rob, he would have been 78 there and he still looked 6ft1 range. I have no doubt he was big 6ft2er in his hey day if not 189cm. Look at him with 6ft1 guys like Jack Lord or Gert Frobe

Rob, I actually think Connery edges out Carrey in that photo
Editor Rob: I'm accounting for the camera being more on Sean's side, I'd have said he gained some height in the photo.
Mister lennon said on 5/Nov/17
Sorry, rob, but in that picture , connery is taller than carrey.
Scoobydoo said on 4/Nov/17
Connery never was 190 cm barefoot he was a genuine 188 cm in peak , maybe 189 cm in the morning.
Nowadays ... well he is old, who knows?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/17
Rob, have you looked at grizz's photo?
Editor Rob: yes, Carrey is barely any taller really, you could make a case for Carrey as a 186cm guy and Connery still seeming near 185 there.
grizz said on 22/Oct/17
Click Here Next to Jim Carrey (roughly 10 years ago) he still looked taller!
matt hill said on 13/Oct/17
Every inch of 6ft2 in his prime probably around 6ft now at 87 years old and probably the best bond of all time the second best been daniel craig
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Oct/17
Out of bed: 6ft2⅞(190.1cm)
Before bed: 6ft2⅛(188.2cm)

Rory said on 2/Oct/17
How can you tell he is 5ft11 with his carers unless you are or know his carers height ? I doubt he's under 6ft today.
James said on 2/Oct/17
Nope, he is clearly 5'11" in the recent pictures with his carers.
mister_lennon said on 1/Oct/17
he is 6 now
James said on 26/Sep/17
Connery is 5'11" in the latest pictures with his carer.
Cameron said on 20/Sep/17
Why no peak height option? considering he was 6'2" at his peak and is 90 years old, I think it's a given he's lost some height.
Editor Rob: he's been retired for a while and mainly out of the limelight, so was left at his peak. I'd say he is probably 6ft now.
Rory said on 19/Sep/17
A classic 6ft2 guy peak and 6ft0.25 today. 1.75 inch loss isn't bad at all for 87. I felt he looked 6'0.5-0.75 with Murray in 2012 but has probably lost another fraction since then.
Willes188 said on 14/Sep/17
Yea 189 is punching it even if it would be cool, 188-188.5 is ok
James said on 8/Sep/17
Caine is exactly six foot now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Sep/17
Agreed. Caine does look to have lost a bit more. He'd still clear 6ft though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/17
Caine just got given 184cm. I reckon it's safe to assume that Connery is also around that today but there's not really any point in giving him a current height. He's been absent from the limelight for many years now.
Editor Rob: Caine is still active, but I think in last 5 years went from still looking near 6ft 1 to maybe 184ish
berta said on 31/Aug/17
as most guys here seems to think i agree on 188-188,5 peak. a full 189 seems a little to mutch and even today he still looks 185 cm range maybe 184,5. he have lost barely 4 cm and is almost 90 years old.
James said on 26/Aug/17
Connery was 187 at his peak.
Richardspain said on 25/Aug/17
Between 184-185cm nowadays.

Between 188-189cm young.

He has the same height than Clint Eastwood's height nowadays only difference is Clint Eastwood was 1 cm taller than Sean in peak .
Willes188 said on 24/Aug/17
188-188.5cm peak or between 6'2 and 6'2.25, still close to 6ft 1 today 6'0.5 maybe
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/17
I believe that measurement from the 1950 Mr. Universe. He's the tallest guy in that photo...
James said on 14/Aug/17
@James I disagree with you. He is around 1.84 today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/17
184cm zone today
Mister lennon said on 2/Aug/17
He's clearly still 6.
James said on 1/Aug/17
He's clearly below six foot now.
Mister lennon said on 1/Aug/17
He is 6 now.
James said on 31/Jul/17
Connery is 5'11.5" now.
Mister lennon said on 28/Jul/17
Strong 188 at youth. Today about 184-185.
Aza said on 28/Jul/17
Believe he was a solid 6'2 peak.
RichardSpain said on 27/Jul/17
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/17
190.4cm out of bed

what??? ha ha ha
James said on 27/Jul/17
Connery may have been 187 cm in his youth. He's less than 183 today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/17
190.4cm out of bed
Mister lennon said on 25/Jul/17
Connery was always 6'2 at his peak.
James said on 25/Jul/17
Connery was 6'1.5" in "Dr No", and six foot by his last film in 2002.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 24/Jul/17
More like 6'2.25" on the dot.
RichardSpain said on 24/Jul/17
Connery was a strong 188 cm ( 6'2 feet)

Costner was a strong 185cm ( 6'1 feet)

Harrison between 183-184cm ( strong 6 feet nearly 6'1 feet)
Canson said on 24/Jul/17
I'd say he's close to Hackman at his peak maybe fraction lower. 6'1.75 and 6'2 for Hackman
James B said on 23/Jul/17
Costner was 6'1 legit
James said on 23/Jul/17
Costner wasn't 6'1". Connery was clearly shorter than Nicol Williamson.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 23/Jul/17
187-188 peak
Mister lennon said on 22/Jul/17
Costner was a solid 6'1 guy.
The lifts things is becoming so annoying . Is just trolling.
James B said on 22/Jul/17
Rory said on 21/Jul/17
I've no idea how someone could watch from Russia with love and then come to the conclusion he was below 6ft2. Watching Connery walk through the corridors/airport etc in that film he's basically always the tallest man in the scene. The idea he wore lifts is for the birds many a bond film he was walking on the beach or in his hotel room or swimming visibly barefoot and his profile still looks the same size as when fully dressed in shoes. Just accept the fact he was a solid 6ft 2.

Russia with love is only one film and I just thought he could look in the 6'1.5 range in that movie. Connery looked a legit 6'2 in Dr No though because he was very slim in that film.
James said on 22/Jul/17

Costner was exactly six feet tall at his peak. Connery probably wore lifts in "The Untouchables" to look slightly taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/17
Connery and Hackman in their late 50's were both taller than a 32-year old Kevin Costner who was a yardstick 6ft1.

Some of these comments defy logic...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/17
6ft peak is a joke.
James said on 21/Jul/17
Fleming was only 5'11" in 1964.
Mister lennon said on 21/Jul/17
That is bull****h. He was a clear 6'2 guy. Taller than many 6'1 guys like kevin costner or michael caine or roger moore. 2 inches taller than a 6 harrison ford, and he was almost 60 when he did indiana jones.
The lifts thing and the small sets is just stupid and nonsense. Lets guess than connery was just 6'1 peak(what he wasnt. He was 6'2.) So, he wears lifts and shooted in small sets only to look 6'2. A tall 6'1 guy with lifts and small sets? I can understand it with dustkn hoffman. But with a 6'1 guy???and Whats the matter if bond was 6'1 or 6'2??? That is just absurd.and later, bond has been played by 6'1 roger moore, 6"1 pierce brosnan and 5'10 daniel craig.
All this issue is pretty ridiculous
James said on 21/Jul/17
He was made to look taller in the early Bond films with lifts, camera angles, small furniture and small sets.
Dan said on 20/Jul/17 may be right.

Mister lennon...based on what? 6'2" for Connery is a joke to me. Look at the pictures of him standing with the 6'0" Bond creator Ian Fleming. Connery consistently looks not even an inch over him...doesn't even look a half-inch over.
James B said on 20/Jul/17
Saw Russia with love tonight and thought he looked more 6'1.5 in that film.
Rory said on 20/Jul/17
No he had to be a legit 6ft2 peak..watching from Russia with Love he looks a genuinely big man.
James said on 20/Jul/17
Connery was only 6'2" with lifts.
Mister lennon said on 20/Jul/17
6 is a joke for connery.
Nothing less than a solid 6'2 at peak.
Jug said on 19/Jul/17
I don't know if this is accurate but I've heard that the EON tailors measured him at 6'1.5. He was a bit more than two inches shorter than Sutherland in The Great Train Robbery and sometimes Martin Landau and Karl Malden looked taller than him in a film called Meteor. Peter Boyle looked a little taller in Outland. James Fox looked taller in The Russia House. He was noticeably taller than Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and about the same height as Kevin Costner in The Untouchables. I think he was slightly under 6'2 at peak. He also never had great posture.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 19/Jul/17
Over 188 cm is better.
James said on 18/Jul/17
Sutherland was 6'3" so Connery was six foot in that awful film.
Dan said on 18/Jul/17
even...based on what?? 6'1" is the highest I'd go for Connery...again, easily 3" shorter than the 6'4" Sutherland in "The Great Train Robbery."
even said on 17/Jul/17
six foot two is correct
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/17
185cm peak is definitely too low
Dan said on 14/Jul/17
Spencer...not even close. Connery is a good three inches shorter than the 6'4" Donald Sutherland in "The Great Train Robbery." 6'1" was his peak.
James said on 13/Jul/17
He was 187 at his peak. Camera angles and smaller sets and furniture were used to make him look taller as Bond.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jul/17
He did look more 187cm in Never Say Never Again but like you said he was 52. I still stand by 189cm peak
RichardSpain said on 11/Jul/17
Guys ,

Between 188 -189 cm was Connery in peak. I think he was a solid 189 maybe in the morning out of the bed. But 188 cm in the afternon.

Here next to Rowan Atkison (181-182 cm) in the movie "never say never again"

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

As you can see, Connery doesn't look 189cm next to Rowan but 187 / 188 cm is more credible.

In this movie Connery was 52 years old
Spencer said on 9/Jul/17
189 peak 6'2.5
James B said on 5/Jul/17
Watching Dr no right now. Just looking at him in the film Iam thinking he would have been a great choice to play Bruce Wayne. Does anyone else agree?
James B said on 5/Jul/17
lol even to me 6'2 is not freakishly tall.

6'5 is what I'd call freakishly tall
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/17
Brosnan would edge out Costner and possibly Moore
James said on 4/Jul/17
Brosnan was clearly taller than Moore, and Hackman was taller than Caine.
Richardspain said on 3/Jul/17
Peaks of ours" stars"

Sean Connery: (188.5cm)
Gene Hackman: (187.5cm)
Michael Caine: (188cm)
Roger Moore: (186cm)
Pierce Brosnan: (186cm)
Kevin Costner: (186cm)
Harrison Ford: (184cm)
Christopher Walken: (183.5cm)
Alec Baldwin (181.5cm)

Connery was taller than our friends

Alec was shorter than besides

Moore,Brosnan and Costner same height.

Gene Hackman a bit shorter than Michael Caine.

I think I am sure.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jul/17
I can see 6'2.5 in the corridor scenes in Goldfinger and Thunderball but never thought he looked a big 6'3.
Richard said on 30/Jun/17
Connery was 6'1.5" but now he's below six foot. Costner was six foot at his peak.
Johan said on 30/Jun/17
5'9"-5'10" for Connery lmao. That makes Christopher Lambert 5'7" tops and Nic Cage 5'8" Max.
Mister_lennon said on 30/Jun/17
5'9 for connery is just trolling.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/17
6ft2 is not freakishly tall mate
S.J.H said on 29/Jun/17
He could be 6'1 now but few years back he look around 6'1.5
Charlie said on 29/Jun/17
I am a huge James Bond fan and in many of Sean's Bond Films the Female is 2 to 3 inches shorter than him while in heels.I personally have never met a female in my entire life that was over 5'10 in heels. But according to the 6'2 listing here the females in the earlier Bond movies would have to be 5'10 to 5'11 while in heels. We can easily rule out any females reaching 5'10 in heels. 5'6 in heels yes that's believable. This would make Sean Connery 5'9 to 5'10 when he played Bond. I don;t think truly understand exactly how tall 6'2 is. It's freakishly tall.I am 5'10. I am male. In the afternoon i am 5'9 1/4 but when i go outside people are amazed by how tall i am. I saw a guy who was in deed taller than myself. Going by the re-flexion from the window he looked to be 3 inches taller than me. 6'1 is how he appeared. From a distance he stood out like a sore thumb and looked freakishly tall compared to the other males. Sean Connery blended in quite well with his other male co stars. No way was he ever 6'2. Absolutely not. He looked like a 5'9 man when he did James Bond. Today i would say he is 5'7 maybe 5'8.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/17
Sean Connery: 6ft2¼(188.6cm)

Costner was 6'0.5" and Connery was 6'1.5" at their peaks.
RichardSpain said on 23/Jun/17
Costner : 185 cm .
Connery: 189cm younger in peak 187cm/188cm in "untouchables"
Harrison: 183cm/184cm in peak
Mimi said on 22/Jun/17
Is he still holding on to this height at age 86? I'm expecting at least an inch of loss.
Editor Rob: since he's been retired, he's kept a peak height, but today I believe he may well be closer to 6ft flat.
Ted said on 16/Jun/17
Slightly over 6' 2'' in his 30s.
berta said on 15/Jun/17
at 56 he probably had lost max 0,5 cm because he was same height as carey even 10 yhears back. Withcosnter he looked max 2 m taller. Costner is one of the evidence that he might have been 188 flat and not taller at peak.well either that ore just over it
James said on 2/Jun/17
Connery was 6'1.5" in 1953 and six foot by 2000.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/17
Still looked 187-188cm zone in the 90's-00's and 186cm about 9 years ago (w/h Jim Carey at an AFI event)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/17
If Costner was 185/186cm, Connery looked 188/189cm

Worked with him on Entrapment in 1998 when he was 68, and he was much bigger and taller than I expected. I was around 185cm and he seemed a little taller, around 186cm. So 188cm peak is right.
movieguy said on 27/May/17
Great photo posted of Landau and Connery. Can't see any height difference though. Both were probably about 6'2''.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/May/17
188/189cm is more plausible than 187/188cm
James said on 24/May/17
Martin Landau was 6'2" at his peak.
Willes188 said on 24/May/17
I do think that 6'2.5 is a little too high for him, but he generally looked anywhere between 6'1.75-6'2.25 in his prime.
AlexMahone said on 20/May/17
In the 1979 movie Meteor, Connery and Martin Landau in some scenes stand face to face. I always thought that Landau was in prime a legit 6'2.5" guy. Landau in the movie is slightly taller than Connery.

Click Here

Landau's posture is always terrible but here stands in great military posture. What do you think Rob?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/May/17
In Never Say Never Again he did look a little shorter than before. He was heavier though
James B said on 17/May/17
Rampage- I saw Dr No a little over 1 year ago on TV and I didn't think he really looked over 6ft2 in that film.

Might have to see it again to refresh my memory but I will say though that I thought he could look 6'1.5 in never say never again
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/17
I think he could be 184/185cm zone today if measured. Can look like a 6ft guy when walking
msn187 said on 14/May/17
He hansn't at least lost a cm or two in height at his age? That's rather impressive.
Editor Rob: he has lost height, but because he is basically retired, he kept his peak height. Today he might be 6ft flat.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/17
Goldfinger, Dr. No and You Only Live Twice were times where he could pass for 6ft3. If he was a strong 6ft2 then he could have been 6ft3 out of bed.
James B said on 10/May/17
You could make a case for him looking 6ft3 in Goldfinger. Not saying he was that tall though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/17
James is just a troll....

Look 6ft2 flat is fine for Connery aswell but nothing less. I just think it's more likely he measured a bit over it rather than under...just like Caine is also entitled to a 6ft2 listing but he may have been a little shy of it
mister_lennon said on 4/May/17
The lifts thing is just crap, as always.
connery was a true and strong 6'2.
AlexMahone said on 4/May/17
James wants again his 5 minutes fame...

The lift wearer talk is insane...
Editor Rob: James comments have slowed down a bit
Rory said on 3/May/17
Why would a 6ft 2 guy or even accepting for a minute you're right and that he was 6ft 1.5...why would a 6ft 1.5 guy(about the equivalent of 6ft 3.25 today compared to then) need to wear lifts or indeed need the furniture shrinked down ? Very odd.
James said on 3/May/17
Connery was wearing lifts in "Dr No", and the furniture and sets were smaller than they would be in reality. Connery's peak height was 6'1.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/May/17
He looked abut 6ft3 w/h Jack Lord. Absolute nothing below 188-188.5cm at night in 1962
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/17
Maybe at a push he could be near 185cm today.
Richardspain said on 28/Apr/17
He is tall. I think he is a strong 185cm no less, with footwear about 187cm.

Similar Roger Moore's height but a bit shorter than Connery.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/17
Peak: 6ft2¼(188.6cm)
Today: 6ft0½(184.2cm)
James said on 27/Apr/17
He was 71 or 72 when his last film "The League of Gentlemen" was filmed in 2002.
RichardSpain said on 25/Apr/17
My resume;

Connery was 189cm in peak to his fifty years old.

From the age of fifty years old to ...maybe ¿¿¿sixty-five ??? years old his height was 188cm not less.

Since his 65 years old, he lost a bit of height.

The problem he retired of the cinema when he was around seventy years old , and we couldn't control his height. But in my opinion today 184 cm to Connery is ok.Not more.
Johan said on 22/Apr/17
Back in 2012 he already looked 6'0.5" next to 6'2" Andy Murray ( measured). So I agree with James for once, now 5 years later and at 87 years old its pretty certain that he is 6' or maybe even less because of poor posture.

He is retired so no real point giving a current height.
Willes188 said on 20/Apr/17
He looked 6ft 1.5-6ft 2 in 1989 next to Harrison Ford. In his younger days he looked a solid 6ft 2

6'2.25 is still up for debate in his prime
Thomas Veil said on 20/Apr/17
6'2 easy for 007
berta said on 19/Apr/17
i personally think that this average guess listings is not 100 procent what people believe. Its many guys on this site that always write stuff like" he had 4 inches lifts on" and vote a guy like connery at 6 foot.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 19/Apr/17
6'2" without shoes. Actually, 6'2.25" without shoes is also arguable. That's me just saying it neutral.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 19/Apr/17
6'2" without shoes.
mister_lennon said on 17/Apr/17
6'2 without shoes.

188-189 peak. Not less.
James said on 13/Apr/17
Connery was 187 cm at his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Apr/17
Still looked 188cm in the 80's-90's.
berta said on 12/Apr/17
rob in all honeslty of you had listing like 6 foot 2 and 1/5 on this site then i think connery would have been listed that. may have been to short for 1/4 LISTING but i still think he was not 188,0 tall in the afternoon but more 188,4 rangea strong 188 guy. people on the site seems to think he was barely 188. to name a few movie where he could look shorter is indiana jones. he mad ford look almost 185 aorund 184,5 maybe. and highlander he didnt rally look almost 10 cm taller than the main guy. and in that cosnter movie he looked half inch taller. other than that he looked really tall. hm also with nicolas cage it looked like he was barely 188 and cage maybe 184. hm its a lot of movies he actually did look at best 188 but the question is when did he start to loose height . he is well built and have big bones just look at his hands so i think he didnt loose more than 1-3 mm until he was around 60-64 years old.
190 cm said on 10/Apr/17
Maximum of 185 cm for him when he was young.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/17
Could look a 6ft3 guy in Dr. No
Richard said on 5/Apr/17
Remember the sets in "Dr No" were smaller than they would be in real life so Connery would look taller.
Editor Rob: sometimes that is true...I also am getting my house remodelled, with smaller doorways and lower ceilings so in future videos I look Big Rob²
Headlights said on 4/Apr/17
Having just watched his early Bond movies I'd have to go with a peak/young height of 6' 1.5" or 6' 2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/17
He could've been 187-188cm in the 90's
DirectorKrennic said on 4/Apr/17
Time for Peak 188 cm and current 184 cm.
RichardSpain said on 3/Apr/17
I think Sean never was 190 cm, in my opinion 188 cm or 189cm in peak is possible. When he was Dr Henry Jones in Indiana Jones and the last crusade, maybe his height was 187cm and Harrison 183cm. Today Connery 184 cm is posible, he is 86 years old.
James said on 3/Apr/17
Connery is actually six foot now.
mister_lennon said on 3/Apr/17
Yes. Thath is what i said. 4 or 5 years ago, he looked the same or a little bit taller than jim carrey.
S.J.H said on 1/Apr/17
4 years ago he look at least same height as jim carrey. Now is a myth if he have lost more height or not.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/17
He can look barely 6ft today when walking around or standing loosely but I'm convinced he'd still clear that mark if measured. Possibly a just under 6ft1 though. He's lost roughly 1½in from his peak.

I think he woke up at 6ft3 and dropped to 6ft2-2¼ at his low
Sam said on 20/Mar/17
Hmm, I think seeing him with 6'6" Alan Napier in Marnie, I wouldn't try to argue anything over 189 cm at his full peak, Napier looks pretty much a strong 4 inches taller. Other evidence that the listing is correct, was that Connery clearly edged by nearly a couple inches by 6'3.5" Donald Sutherland in The Great Train Robbery and no taller than the even 6'2" Michael Caine in The Man Who Would Be King.

Peak - 6'2.75"
Now - 6'1.5"
James said on 19/Mar/17
He was 6'1.5" as a young man.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/17
I think in his prime he easily hit a solid 190cm out of bed (maybe even 190.5cm which is actually 6ft3 on the nose).
Willes188 said on 18/Mar/17
190cm is not hard to believe at all, he probably measured it in the morning (prime)
berta said on 17/Mar/17
i think connery can look 184 range today but who knows if he is 185 when he stands tall. under 6 foot 2 is hard to believe at peak. and anything over 189 is also to mutch
James said on 15/Mar/17
Connery is six foot now.
mister_lennon said on 15/Mar/17
He hasnt lost so much heigth . He owned jim carrey some years ago.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Mar/17
Still looking 6ft2 in these

Editor Rob: that's a few years ago I'd say now.
Shredder said on 9/Mar/17
I've been watching old films with him , He really did look 6'2 at the lowest. I believe the over 6'2 measurement.
mister_lennon said on 7/Mar/17
Hackman was 6'2. Connery was a strong 6'2.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Mar/17
Wow, a very strong resemblance to his mother. Click Here She looks so masculine it's tough to see her as female there. Connery said she was "hard as nails", he obviously takes after her!
James said on 6/Mar/17
Hackman was 6'1". Connery was 6'1.5".
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
@Rampage: definitely thanks as well! Agreed too! Hackman to me still looks every bit of 6'2 in Heist and even in enemy of the state when he is standing straight looks as tall as Smith or taller. In Heist he looked almost even with the way has Delroy Lindo. Possible both have lost height today but lindo looked a 192-193 guy prime imho maybe even your height a full 6'4.
mister_lennon said on 5/Mar/17
Hackman was 6'2. As connery.
James said on 4/Mar/17
Hackman was 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/17
@Canson: I appreciate that thanks and likewise, you clearly have sharp eye for this. There are far too many trolls on here who just refuse to let up.

I think Hackman is a hard guy to pin down. He has looked both a weak and strong 6ft2 on different occasions. I think 6ft2 flat is fine for him overall though. Right between Caine and Connery
Canson said on 4/Mar/17
@Rampage: I'll admit it's possible I agree. I value your opinion a lot more than Willes and I always have liked and respected you as a poster as you present your points logically and respectfully! Plus you are around that height of 6'4" so much easier to tell that type of height. I do certainly agree on Hackman. He was a legit 6'2" prime and looks it in Heist still with Delroy lindo. At worst maybe he dipped to weak 6'2 but that's a big if
Guanzo said on 2/Mar/17
6'1'' no more
mister_lennon said on 22/Feb/17
Thanks, berta.
berta said on 21/Feb/17
mister_lennon i would say excactly the same on all them. the one who can be hard is dwayne johnson in your first post you thought 191-192 and now 190-191 and i am with you on that sometimes i bevlie he wwas just 6 foot 3 at peak but other times it looked like he could have been a littel over maybe not 6 foot 3 and a half but 1/4. And as you say ford and travolta was very close at their peaks. But ford was probably something like6 fot and 3/8 while travolta was 6 foot 1/4 with a chanse of being 6 foot flat on bad days. Thums up for your guesses!!!
Mark(5'9.25 said on 14/Feb/17
I would go by the strong 6'2" for Connery.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Feb/17
Dolph Lundgren: 6ft4½(194.3cm) peak; 6ft3(190.5cm) today
Dwayne Johnson: 6ft3½(191.8cm) peak; 6ft2¾(189.9cm) today
Harrison Ford: 6ft0¾(184.8cm) peak; 5ft11(180.3cm) today
John Travolta: 6ft0½(184.2cm) peak; 5ft11¾(182.2cm) today
Willes189 said on 13/Feb/17
I think that Connery deserves a place on the "Classic Hollywood Actors" page
mister_lennon said on 12/Feb/17
Berta , i think it:
Harrison ford: 183-184 peak and 178-179 now.
dolph lundgren:192-193 peak and 189-190 now.
the rock: 190-191 peak and 188-189 now.
john travolta: 183-184 peak and 182-183 now. Maybe 181.
peak ford and peak travolta were very similar. Both solid 6 guys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Feb/17
Berta, I think Ford was near 6ft1 up until the mid-80's. Minimum 6ft0¾ anyway. Looked 6ft1 in Star Wars and The Conversation. Obviously he began to lose height quite early. Dolph had to be at least 6ft4 in the 80's and I don't doubt the listed 6ft4¼. He was a monster of a guy and had inches over other tall guys. But like Ford, he's fallen victim to injuries and lost a fair bit. The Rock was possibly a bit over 6ft3 when he entered WWE. I can see an argument for 6ft3½ and in wrestling boots was his claimed 6ft5. Travolta was a bit over 6ft, possibly 6ft0½. In Fever he was no less than 6ft2 in those big dancing shoes and likely nearer 6ft3. Similar in Grease. He was super skinny, had the Elvis hairdo and just looked much taller than he probably was. In the 90's when he made his comeback, he was heavier but probably still about same height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Feb/17
Connery still looked every inch of 6ft2 w/h Costner, Ford and Cage. May have dropped a centimetre by then and was 188cm in the 80's-90's. By early 2000's he was starting to look 187cm. As of recently maybe 184-185cm range. I think he can still clear 6ft today when measured.
James said on 11/Feb/17
Connery was never measured as 6'2.4" except with shoes.
mister_lennon said on 11/Feb/17
my estimates about them are:
harrison ford peak: 183-184
harrison ford now: 178-179.
dolph lundgren peak:192-193
dolph lundgren now: 189-190
dwayne johnson peak: 191-192
Dwayne johnson now: 188-189
John travolta peak: 183-184
john travolta now: 182-183
travota and ford were very similar in their peaks.
but very agree with your estimates.
berta said on 10/Feb/17
mister_lennon i think your estimate is very good. caine litte l under 188 connery possible little over but chanse with not being and costner 186. well maybe not 187 that is to mutch but 186 is what he have looked up till 3 years back!!!! Mister_ lennon what is your estimates on Harrison ford, dolph lundgren(peak) dwayne johnson (peak) and john travolta? To me the numbers are. 184, 193 (cant really been taller if he is 189-190 now that is 4 cm loss before 60), dwayne 191 and now 189 and john travolta 183 ore little over.
berta said on 10/Feb/17
he looked like he still was 6 foot 2 with cage at over 60 there is evidence he could have been little over. but with lambert at 179 he really didnt look more than around 187 and same goes with kevin costner. if he was 185 then sean looked little under 6 foot 2. even if we still have ford at 185 connery looked only about 3-3,5 cm taller and that makes him about 188. the quastion is had he lost 1/4 at the age of 60 ish ore nothing. if he had lost that then 6 foot 2 1/4 is better listing otherwise the listing is good.i think shose 2 are the alternatives to list him on.strong 189 is to mutch and 187 is to short
mister_lennon said on 9/Feb/17
i was talking about caine in my last post.
mister_lennon said on 9/Feb/17
A strong 6'1, yeah. But he also said that he was 6'2 or almost in other chances, so, this isnt a valid proof.
Wiles189 said on 8/Feb/17
Stop trolling, Connery was 6'2.4 (189cm) in his youth, that's what he measured
James said on 8/Feb/17
Caine himself said his peak height was 6'1".
mister_lennon said on 8/Feb/17
These are the real heigths:
connery: 6'2(188-189)
Caine:6'1 3/4 (187-188)
Costner:6'1 1/4(186-187)
Wiles189 said on 7/Feb/17
Connery 6'3.5

Caine 6'5 (prime)

Costner 5'7 maybe 5'8 on a good day
Anonymous1 said on 7/Feb/17
..a guy like Wayne Rogers, of MASH, was 6'3......always looked taller than most guys he was with. Connery was a big, tall, solid guy. But I don't believe he could ever stand next to a guy like Rogers, or any other 6'3 guy, and be even remotely on par with him (or her). 6'1.5 to 6'2...max, out of bed inclusive.
James said on 7/Feb/17
Their real heights were:

Sean Connery 6'1.5"
Michael Caine 6'1"
Kevin Costner 6'0"
mister_lennon said on 7/Feb/17
Totally agree with rampage. Pretty good estimations.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/17
Sean Connery - 6ft2¼(189cm)
Michael Caine - 6ft1¾(187cm)
Kevin Costner - 6ft1¼(186cm)

I stand by that.
mister_lennon said on 5/Feb/17
Costner looked 6'1 in almost all his movies. Taller than many 6 guys and the same tall than 6'1-6'2 guys.

Connery was a solid 6'2 guy at peak. Maybe almost 6'3 out of bed. He looked it in every movie. The untouchables is a great movie and connery was still 6'2 at that time.maybeca weak 6'2 at that time because he had lost some fraction.

caine was a strong 6'1 guy at peak. Meybe 6'2 out of bed. And connery had 1 inch or close on him.
Wiles189 said on 5/Feb/17
Connery 6'2.25

Caine 6'1.75-6'2
James said on 5/Feb/17
Costner never looked 6'1" in any film. He was six foot.

Connery's peak height was 6'1.5", but he was 6'1" in that stupid film "The Untouchables".
Mr S said on 4/Feb/17
If Connery was 6'2" then Michael Caine was 6'1.5" as there was a slight, but noticeable height difference between them. My guess would be 6'1.75" for Caine and 6'2.25" for Connery. I still wouldn't rule out 6.2.5" but would rule out anything under 6'2" flat.
mister_lennon said on 4/Feb/17
Connery was 6'2 and costner 6'1.
And every people wear lifts, in james' mind.
James said on 3/Feb/17
Connery was 6'1.5" and Costner was six foot. Costner wore lifts in films though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/17
Canson, I think he could have been 189cm
mister_lennon said on 30/Jan/17
caine was a strong 6'1 peak. he looked evey bit of it. and connery had almost 1 inch on him. clearly, sean was a strong 6'2 peak.
costner was 6'1 peak. maybe a weak one, but 6'1.he lloked it in the untouchables next to connery and andy garcia and robert deniro.
Wiles189 said on 30/Jan/17
Lol calm down
Canson said on 30/Jan/17
@Christian: I definitely agree he was not 6'2.5. Willes189 always inflates people's heights. James however could be accurate or connery could've been a guy who was 187cm (6'2.5 out of bed/6'1.75 at night) or 1/4" shorter like James had prime. Diff from 6'2 to 6'1.5 isn't much not to mention the variance from morning until night where a guy could measure 6'1 7/8 an hour out of bed and call himself 6'2 when he's really 6'1.5.
James said on 29/Jan/17
Caine himself said he was 6'1" at his peak. Anything over six foot would be considered tall, especially 40 years ago.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 29/Jan/17
Connery was a genuine 6ft2 (188cm) guy at his peak, not 6ft1.5 or 6ft2.5 like James or Willes has stated.
James said on 29/Jan/17
Costner was six foot in "The Untouchables", although he was well known for wearing lifts.
Johan said on 29/Jan/17
My father once met Michael Caine on a ferry from England in the 70's and he said he was a tall man. How tall he never said but my father was a solid 183 cm in his prime. So he wasn't a flat 6'1" thats for sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jan/17
Caine: weak 6ft2
Connery: strong 6ft2
James said on 28/Jan/17
Willes189 should be banned for abusing Canson.

Over the years? I've only been on this site since last March.

Connery was only half an inch taller than Caine.
Aza said on 28/Jan/17
If we are saying that Costner was probably almost 6'1 in the untouchables and Connery was still taller then for his peak I do not think 6'2 is unreasonable at all?
Willes189 said on 27/Jan/17
Sorry for my immature posts, i wasn't sober... anyways let's just try to keep it cool, i will not mock anyone just because they have a different opinion then myself from now on. But that doesn't mean that James is right, he has said some very offensive and questionable things over the years
mister_lennon said on 27/Jan/17
Caine was a strong 6'1 peak. Connery had almost an inch on him. So, he was a strong 6'2 guy peak.
Willes189 said on 27/Jan/17
Rob, ban these two lunatics!
Willes189 said on 27/Jan/17
I'm actually 20 yo, currently in university & 188-189cm tall. Buti don't know why Rob are letting you old middle aged overweight creeps rant like this without consequences.

By the way, i'm not jealous of anyone, it would be quite the opposite if you ever saw me in person buddy.

Oh, and you aren't perfect Canson, Rob called you out on your "stick to one name rule"

Go back to your basement and cry about your uncomfortable, awkwardly tall (and overweight) body
Canson said on 24/Jan/17
@Willes189: I can see a picture of you in my head as a nerdy 17 year old kid who hasn't reached his full potential and is envious and jealous of everyone for their height. You are the most ignorant insecure delusional troll on this site and all you do is denigrate the opinions of others who do not agree with you. Funny part is that it's always when someone else feels someone "isn't" as tall as they are listed or as you Willes189 would like them to be. Never the other way around. Funny how you claim every person like Kobe Bryant Howard Stern Charles Barkley etc are taller than Rob has them listed and that they "downplay their height" then you walk around and insult people. How about maybe the guys you claim are a certain height aren't. Oh and your "father" hacking your name and going off on rants? That's an original one lol. Because you do the same thing. No Why don't you take your trolling elsewhere and stop criticizing James because of his opinion. Thank You.
anonymous1 said on 23/Jan/17
...According to a site which shall remain nameless (but, you may guess), under the "trivia" section for Timothy Dalton, this is what I found; "According to the James Bond film tailors in London, at 6' 2" he is the tallest of all the Bond actors. The tailors who have fitted and measured each of the 5 Bonds over the years claim the following heights for each of the other Bond actors: Sean Connery 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, George Lazenby 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, Roger Moore 6' 1" without shoes and Pierce Brosnan 6' 1" without shoes". Make of it what you wish, but if it's a legit quote, who would know better than his tailors.
Editor Rob: the trivia was lifted from an old site that made no mention of where the info came from.

based on the site it came from, I would be highly sceptical as to whether somebody had contacted all of these tailors.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 23/Jan/17
He really pulls of the 188 cm/189 cm in peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jan/17
He's most likely 184cm today but a strong 188cm/weak 189cm peak
Johan said on 22/Jan/17
Connery was a legit 6'2" in his prime.

He was a fraction off 6'1" at 82 years old .

Kevin Costner was a legit 185 cm guy - 6'0.75"-6'1".
Willes189 said on 21/Jan/17
He got measured at 6'2.4 and could easily have been 6'2.75-6'3 (morning)

It's a common fact that Connery was 189cm, if you went out on the street and asked 100 James Bond fans who the tallest Bond actor is/was, 99% of them would say Connery

I can see a picture of James in my head right now, he is the typical insecure lonely middle aged man with 50 pounds extra body fat.
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jan/17
One Summer, when I was playing loud music right into the wee, small hours and drinking more than was good for me, I read a funny story about Sean Connery doing much the same thing while reading my Dad's 'Daily Express'!
One thing I must say is that my Dad lives in a detached house, so there were no neighbours banging on the door complaining! Not so for Sean though! He was rude to them and swore at them, taking no notice of their gripes whatsoever! I found that extremely funny, although it obviously isn't, but it was to me at the time as I was doing much the same myself! Boy, did I appreciate the fact that no one could hear the noisy racket coming from our residence!
Anyway, Sean has always struck me as a dashing 6ft plus! On the whole, I am not into 'James Bond' films, but if I had to opt for my favourite Bond, it would be Sean. I thought he was great in the Hitchcock film 'Marnie', which I saw when I was 9 years old and it terrified the life out of me and my equally young friend, Rosemary!
I will go along with 6ft2 for him, though I guess he's a bit shorter now! I've never seen a film with Mr Connery in it and not been impressed. He's one of our 'Golden Greats' and I hope, for the sake of his health, that he has quit the drinking lifestyle now!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jan/17
Connery was still 6ft2 in the 80's
James said on 21/Jan/17
Connery was 6'1.5" at his peak. He had lost half an inch by the 1980s.

Costner never looked any more than six foot.
Csimpson 6ft said on 20/Jan/17
Why are there 44 6ft 2 votes for Sean? Theres no way hes still that tall today hes in his 80s so he cant be no more than 6ft now
Editor Rob: Connor, he's been retired from films and so just kept at a peak height.
mister_lennon said on 20/Jan/17
Connery was 6'2 at peak. A strong 6'2. 188-189. To post that he was only 6'1 is just ridiculous. He always looked every bit of a 6'2 guy, never 6'1. And he is taller than many 6'1 guys.
Clearly, he was 6'2.
costner was 6'1 peak. He looked every bit of it too.
Anonymous1 said on 19/Jan/17
...I don't have the time or patience to try and track it down, online, but I know I read on some site devoted to Bond or his suits, that tailors had Connery at 6'1.5. Could that mean he was 6'2 out of bed? Sure. Could he have been measured while still in bed? Who knows. lol.
James said on 19/Jan/17
What false accusations?

Costner was six foot.

One does not simply disrespect celebrities all the time like James does. I think people like him are bad for this site. Spreading hate and false accusations all the time is something i'm sure makes no one happy.
mister_lennon said on 19/Jan/17
Connery was 6'2 peak and a strong 6 now.
Only 6'1 for him is just trolling.
And he is a great actor with many different roles.
James said on 18/Jan/17
Connery played the same character in every film. He was 6'1.5" at his peak, and 6'1" in later years.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/17
If Costner was 186cm then you could argue Sean looked 189cm
Willes189 said on 18/Jan/17
188.5-189 peak
mister_lennon said on 18/Jan/17
Connery is a great actor. And he proveed it in many films. And he was a strong 6'2. He looked it and he was it.
6'1 for him is just a joke. He always looked way taller than him.

Dalton was a weak 6'2, yes.
James said on 17/Jan/17
Connery was 6'1.5" at his peak, and 6'1" by the 1980s.

He was an average actor who only became famous in middle-age because Cubby Broccoli cast him as James Bond. The way he treated Broccoli - to whom he owed his entire career - was shockingly bad.
Martin said on 17/Jan/17
189cm was most probably in shoes, and 187cm was measured barefoot.
AlexMahone said on 17/Jan/17
OK James/Tom etc. Connery was 6'1 or 6'1.5" or what?

"No idea how he ever became famous though." You have no idea height and movies as well.

Connery was peak 189cm, now he shrunk a lot...
James said on 16/Jan/17
Dalton was the tallest Bond at 6'2". Connery was 6'1.5".

No idea how he ever became famous though.

Peak: 188.8cm
Today 184.6cm

Connery was easily a strong 6'2 peak.188-189. He was it and he looks it
Martin said on 16/Jan/17
I agree with James. Connery was 6'1.5" at his peak. This was also confirmed by his tailor.
berta said on 16/Jan/17
peak at worst 188 and at best 189 i think he was 188,5 these days maybe 184. he still looks tall these days dont think he is under 184.

No he wasn't. Connery was 6'1.5" at his peak.

Same zone as Affleck peak
Mark(5'9.25 said on 12/Jan/17
6'1.5" peak is too much low let alone just 6'1" flat. He was an inch taller than young Kevin Costner. Connery would have been similar to Will Poulter.
Csimpson 6ft said on 6/Jan/17
Rob is 6ft 0-0.5 possible for Connery today?
Editor Rob: Connor, he might be down to 6ft now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/16
He still looked 186-187cm range 10-15 years ago so somehow it's doubtful he was that low peak.
Jordan87 said on 15/Dec/16
I cant find the Quote but didn't Connery himself say he was 6'1.5" once on a Show? I could be wrong but I remember seeing it years ago, thought I cant find it now. I could be mistaken.
Editor Rob: I would love to have this surface one day.
AlexMahone said on 8/Dec/16
No James, he wore lifts. You didn't know that? Shame. :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/16
Rob, how tall do you think Charles Gray was?

I've heard both 6ft1 and 6ft2 for him. Looked close to Connery...
Editor Rob: really anywhere amongst that range could be possible
James said on 2/Nov/16
Charles Gray was 6'1", not 6'2".
AlexMahone said on 29/Oct/16
Calm down? Please, don't get to tell me what to do. If you have a downgrader behavior, ok, fine this is your fault. You have one so called proof to downgrade the prime Connery that Gray was only 185cm. I listed many Connery movies what I know, in these Connery looked taller than 6'1". Do you saw these films? I don't want to find pictures from these movies to compare because useless. You have a conviction that Connery is max. 185cm. I repeat myself, this is fine. But not true.
Flint said on 27/Oct/16
AlexMahone, you have no more proof than I have, just the listed heights of actors, and Charles Gray is listed at 6'1, so thanks for reinforcing my argument with that one. You should calm down, we're debating a cm for goodness sake!
AlexMahone said on 26/Oct/16
Dear Flint! I repeat myself. If you have no proofs to radically downgrade some actors this is a crass stupidity. Charles Gray was at least 188cm. In Diamonds are forever he had the same height than Connery. In The Molly Maguires Connery was 3-4 cm taller than Richard Harris. (If you are right Harris was only 5'11"....) In The Hill he was taller than 6'1" Jack Watson, in Murder on the Orient Express he was taller than Anthony Perkins (Perkins was at least as tall as Yves Montand), in Meteor he was taller than 188cm prime Martin Landau and in the A Bridge Too Far he and Gene Hackman were the tallest in the cast. So, yes Connery was prime at least 6'2".
Flint said on 26/Oct/16
Rampage, I did talk about The Man Who Would Be King (but called it TMWWBK), see my previous comment. Connery might have touched 6'2 straight out of bed, but I put him at 6'1 1/2 and Cane at 6'1. I used to work in for a very small company where only a couple of the men were under 6'0, four were 6'4 and the rest were around 6'0, apart from one guy who was 6'2 1/2. This one guy looked way closer to the 6'4 men than the 6'0s, and I don't see Connery as being that close to 6'4 actors. He's closer to the 6'0s from what I have observed.

I've never seen Connery have as much as near an inch on Caine, the difference between them is usually negligible, I'd have thought Caine 187.5 and Connery 188/188.5.

187cm for Connery puts Caine at 185cm which Rob agrees is too low for his peak. Watch The Man Who Would Be King. Connery has no hair and is wearing sandels yet still edges Caine who is in his military uniform, helmet and all.

AlexMahone, calling someone's view crass stupidity is not giving due respect. Given that films are all about illusion and the look of actors is always being manipulated by the filmmakers, PR, agents etc... it's almost certain that not everything is as it seems. What I actually said was I don't think Connery was the full 6'2. I'd say 6'1 1/2' and Cane looks a bit shorter when they stand to attention in TMWWBK so 6'1 for him. If you read Cane's auto biog from 1992, you'll see pictures with Roger Moore, who looks an inch or so shorter, so 6'0. I've seen almost every Hammer film, some of them many times, and Christopher Lee must be 6'4, and he had 4 inches on Moore. Back to Connery: in the early films Desmond Llewelyn stoops but still looks at least as tall as Connery and taller at times. He was 6'2 but lost a lot as he aged. Charles Gray was 6'1, but actually looks taller than Connery in You Only Live Twice. And 6'3 Jimmy Dean looks much bigger in DAF. I could go on to make comparisons with numerous British comedy actors in Hell Drivers, or actors in The Hill, or Marnie... have you seen those?

80 plus of age he never loss any height yet. Good example of a very healthy old actor unlike most actor easily lost 1/4-1/2" height in their 50s 60s

188/189 with 188 cm at the absolute worse. Nothing under 6'2" and likely an honest 6'2.5"
