BruceWayne said on 11/Nov/08
You should notice that he looked an inch taller than Kostner (6'1) while he was an old man (Untouchables), or at least in an age in which he probably lost some height. 6'2 as old man, he could have easily been 6'2.5 in his twenties.
Hugh said on 11/Nov/08
Josh Ford is 5ft11.75 these days. Costner is definately 6ft1 though. I think 6ft2 flat these days.
Josh said on 11/Nov/08
A definite 6ft 2 or a bit over for connery as he looked a good inch or so taller than harrison ford and kevin costner who are both around 6ft 1.
Ray said on 11/Nov/08
Hugh, put Hasselhoff, Neeson and Goldblum in their barefeet and Connery in normal heeled shoes. Are you telling me he would be the same height ? Get real buddy ! The very most I can accept for Connery in his prime is 6'1 2/3" (187 cm). I don't know where this body building height came from cos I can't find any reference to it anywhere. Connery, however did say himself he was 6'1.5" in his prime. Every film I have seen him in he hasn't looked any more than this. Until you can come up with documented evidence to say otherwise then that was his height.
Hugh said on 10/Nov/08
Aswell. Connery always did always look taller than Michhael Caine. So there is a fair chance this guy was near 6ft3. 189cm I have no problem beleiving for this guy peak.
Hugh said on 7/Nov/08
Rob how about 6ft2.5 peak.
BruceWayne said on 6/Nov/08
As far as I remember he once said 6'2.5. And the Bond producers first did not want to engage him as Bond because he looked like an oversized stuntman. And there are tons of pictures in which he is clearly taller than Roger Moore. If Moore was 6'1.5, 6'2.5 for Connery is the least measurement (barefoot).
Elf said on 6/Nov/08
To BK_Daniel. Connery has always looked thicker set than Eastwood. Isn't hard to imagine a 15lb difference if Eastwood is 205 and Connery 220.

Hugh said on 6/Nov/08
Rob, has Connery always been 6ft2 on this site or has he been listed a little more.

[Editor Rob: I gave him a 1/4 inch over 6ft 2 one time.]
Hugh said on 6/Nov/08
And was measured 6ft2.5 barefoot when bodybuilding.
Ray said on 6/Nov/08
I agree Viper. Al the evidence points to 6'1.5".
1. He was measured by Bond tailors at 6'1.5"
2. Eon (Bond producers) verified this measurement.
3. He himself said he was 6'1.5"

I don't understand why there is this debate when there's this documented evidence.
Viper said on 6/Nov/08
He was measured at 6-1 1/2 by the Bond tailors. 6-1 1/2 barefoot and 6-2.4 in shoes makes the most sense.
BruceWayne said on 5/Nov/08
I also think he easily was 6'2.4 without shoes in his prime. It's strange but Connery does not look really tall even though he is or was it. Roger Moore often looks really tall but he is definitely shorter than Connery.
RisingForce said on 4/Nov/08
Why would they measure him in sneakers? They only do that in basketball. Body builders were usually seen barefoot anyway. I highly doubt he was measured in shoes especially if the measurement was in centimeters.
Ray said on 4/Nov/08
RisingForce, the reason it says 6ft2.4 is because that's exactly 189 cm. They measure in cm for the body building contests. This was converted to 6ft2.4.
I still believe that was a height in sneakers. In the U.S. they seem to always measure height in shoes.
AAAA said on 3/Nov/08
I've read 215 for connery, but that could have been younger when he was bodybuilding, and then later as he got older. In his Goldfinger days, I would guess him to have been around 190lbs
Ray said on 3/Nov/08
Yeah, when he was in his prime.
Hugh said on 2/Nov/08
Actually I think Connery could be 189cm out of bed.
Hugh said on 1/Nov/08
James, I'd say these days Clancy Brown and Connery would be pretty close in height. Brown had back surgery a while back taking away an inch or so.
Lenad said on 1/Nov/08
Hugh says on 20/0ct/08
6ft0.5 is laughable.
6'0 1/2 is laughable for his peak height I will admit that.
RisingForce said on 31/Oct/08
I think 6'2.4" peak and roughly 6'1" now, maybe 6'1.25".
RisingForce said on 29/Oct/08
He really did seem 6'2.4" when he was younger, besides that seems like an oddly precise figure to fabricate. If Rob thinks he looks 186 cm now then maybe Sean should be given a peak height? I mean he is 78 years old.
RisingForce said on 28/Oct/08
Why not give Sean 6'2.4" peak and 6'1.25" for his current height?
Lenad said on 24/Oct/08
In that scene in Highlander were he is getting his arse kicked by Clancy Brown, Brown was a good few inches taller.
BK_Daniel said on 24/Oct/08
Just finding out that Connery has never been 6'3" I was wondering if anyone knows his weight. It's just that I've read he's 220 lbs but that doesn't seem right because Clint Eastwood is 205 lbs. Also if Clint was Sean's height his weight with that body type would be about 10 pounds less. I don't see connery being 25 lbs more muscular than Clint Eastwood.
Hugh said on 24/Oct/08
Ford could've easily have been 6ft1 at that time seeming he was only in his 40's. Connery could still have been 188-189cm. Today Connery is still 6ft2 flat or 6ft1.5 at the lowest. Ford I'll agree has lost a considerable amount of height due to injuries over the years and his age, now standing a shade under 6ft.
Hugh said on 24/Oct/08
Or James Connery was bang on 6ft2 at that time and has been ever since. Will shrink eventually.
Ray said on 24/Oct/08
I think in The Last Crusade. Connery was 6'1.25" (186 cm) and Ford was a weak 6' (182.5 cm). So I'd say Connery was down quarter inch from a strong 6'1.5" ( 187 cm) in his youth. He was 58 when Last Crusade was filmed.
Hugh said on 23/Oct/08
Or Ford was 6ft-6ft0.5 and Connery was 6ft2.
Ed(1) said on 23/Oct/08
James, then Ford couldn't have been a legit 6ft1 in Last Crusade, because that would have made Connery 6ft2.5-6ft3! The only possible scenario I can see is Connery was around 6ft1.5 in LC to Ford's 5ft11.5-6ft, or Connery was only 6ft1 and Ford was 5ft11-5ft11.5! It has to be one of the two!
Ray said on 23/Oct/08
I'd say close to zero. Just my opinion at the end of the day !
Ed(1) said on 22/Oct/08
6ft1.5 tops for Connery in his youth, and most likely 6ft0.5 maybe a bit shorter today! I'd have guessed Connery was around 6ft0.75-6ft1 in Last Crusade and that was back in 1989, since then he's just steadily lost more!
Ray said on 22/Oct/08
Well James if you're saying Clint is 6ft and Ron claims they were eye to eye then.....
I've seen the recent pics of Sean and Harrison. Some shots there seems to be an inch diff and some there seems to be about 2 ". Ford is about 5'11" and maybe under it now. So 6' - 6'1" for Sean is a good estimate. I think 6'3" is just stupid..no offense :-)
Also, Ron, I think you should get yourself measured. If Sean was 3 - 4 " taller than you in 1990 then I'm afraid you ain't 6' or close to it.
Viper said on 21/Oct/08
He was never a full 6-2 probably let alone 6-3.
Hugh said on 21/Oct/08
Now 6ft4 is laughable. I'll be the first to admit that. But I'd be interested to know if Connery was ever described as that tall.
nicole said on 21/Oct/08
That seems a bit overrated:-).My godfather Ben saw it at 184cm max barefoot these days.So over 188cm is not realistic for peak height.
Ray said on 21/Oct/08
And Ron if you're suggesting Sean was 6'3" or 6'4" in 1990 or at any stage in his life... LOL
Ray said on 21/Oct/08
Clint is only 6'1" these days
Ron said on 20/Oct/08
I took pictures with him and my wife at Pebble Beach in Monterey Calif 1990. His Golf partner was Clint Eastwood who is 6 ft 4inch. They looked at each other eye to eye. Both had normal golf shoes on. I'm 6ft and was taller than me by about 3 to 4 inches. My wife is 5 ft 9inches. He was much taller than her when they walked arm in arm for 2 golf holes while I took pictures.
Hugh said on 20/Oct/08
6ft0.5 is laughable.
Ray said on 20/Oct/08
C'mon Hugh...6'3". Don't be ridiculous. I don't where you are getting these estimates from. Compare him to Goldblum, Neeson and Selleck (who are all around the 6' 3.5" mark these days). Are you telling me he was marginally under their height ? He's about 6'1" these days..probably a bit under that. I'd say 6' 0.5" and I would put a lot of money on that.
Hugh said on 19/Oct/08
I could've sworn he looked 6ft3 even in the 80's.
Anonymous said on 17/Oct/08
6ft 2.4 looks absolutely bang on accurate for much of his life. Always looked a legit 6'2 as Bond and as the Bond producers noted had excellent posture and moved well. Seems to have lost an inch only these days.
Hugh said on 16/Oct/08
Slouching is bad posture.
Patrick said on 16/Oct/08
Ray, Hugh, please look at him in any of his movies. Slouching doesn't mean "having a bad posture" or a "hunch". Many people have this real distinguished attitude we call in French,
nicole said on 12/Oct/08
Saw once again the man who would be king. Both sean and michael caine are the same height.Thought sean is taller but thats not the case.
Hugh said on 10/Oct/08
Yeah, Patrick Sean always struck me of having great posture and a solid walk. He's built so he wouldn't be the slouching type.
Ray said on 10/Oct/08
Patrick, Sean slouching ?? I always thought he had great posture and movement.
Patrick said on 8/Oct/08
Very good pic Gonzalo! How young Sean looks! He looked much older than he=is age when under 40 and now...Better this way than the contrary. Anyway, he apperas being in good shape and no shrunk at all! I bet 6'1.5 and probably one inch or so when young. He always looked taller than he was despite his permanent slouching.
In a way, slouching people look often very tall because we are telling ourselves: "this guy must be very tall to be compelled to bend so!".
Gonzalo said on 8/Oct/08
Connery looking slightly taller than Carrey
Click Here
Connery and Carrey looking the same height
Both guys seemed to be at least around 1`85 nowadays
Ray said on 8/Oct/08
Hugh, I think you're about an inch out on most of those estimates. John Wayne nearly 6'5" ?? No chance. I think you're in the right ball park with your estimates for Hackman, Eastwood, Kennedy and Glover....though maybe slightly high.
Hugh said on 7/Oct/08
I'd agree with most of those.
Hugh said on 6/Oct/08
As of the 1960s

Sean Connery 6ft2.5
James Coburn 6ft2.75
Julian Glover 6ft2
Michael Caine 6ft2
Roger Moore 6ft2
Peter O'Toole 6ft3
Gene Hackman 6ft2.5
George Kennedy 6ft4.25
Jack Lord 6ft1.5
John Wayne 6ft4.75
Joe Don Baker 6ft2.5
Richard Roundtree 6ft2.75
Bill Cosby 6ft1.5
Warren Beatty 6ft2.25
Clint Eastwood 6ft4
Walter Matthau 6ft2.75
Hugh said on 6/Oct/08
Freeman at 6ft2 flat would still result in Carrey being at least 6ft1.5. And that was only 3 years ago. Connery could still be 6ft2.
Hugh said on 4/Oct/08
Now I'm not rounding up here at all but there is a fair enough chance that Carrey is a full 6ft2 because did look very near in height to Jeff Daniels. Also Morgan Freeman.
Mister Lennon said on 4/Oct/08
And by the way, in that picture with carrey and connery together, they looked to be wearing normal shoes, not lifts at all. But Connery was the bigger guy that night.
Mister Lennon said on 4/Oct/08
Sorry, but Jim Carrey is a solid 6'1 guy, he looks a 6'1 and a half guy and that it what he is. He was taller than every guy that night except Connery and Warren Beatty. Beatty Looked the same and Connery looked taller.

I mean, if Connery is still taller than a 6'1 and a half guy like Carrey, and taller by a half an inch at least, and he is 6'2 now at his 78 years old , at peak he could be perfectly more than 6'2.

Carrey is a strong 6'1, only see his movies and premieres and see what he looks. He is a very tall guy, 6'1 and a half at least.
Viper said on 4/Oct/08
Connery being anything over 6-2 is pure fabrication. I can even buy a flat 6-2 peak, but Ill go with the 6-1 1/2 peak measurement the Bond Tailors measured him at and his own admission of "6-1 1/2".

Yeah Mr R like I said Connery is still 6-1 at least and looks it physically to me in photos. Hes really only lost like a half inch of height.

And Im surprised Jim Carey is not actually 6-1.
Hugh said on 4/Oct/08
Thank you Mister Lennon. Rob can you please get rid of Lenad.
Mr. R said on 4/Oct/08
Okay, Hugh and Mister Lennon. I expected a few challenges. I have not seen the pic in question, but each one walked past me as i stood up straight and tall, as they were ushered into the VIP room where I assume the pic was taken. After the pics were taken, each star went to the theater where their movie was playing. Jim Carrey was definitely shorter, but not by a lot. He would be near 6-1, but not fully. Connery might be a little over 6-1, but not by much. The problem when people use pics as measurements is that you cannot see the shoes, angles, nor if the celebs are altering their posture. I do think that seeing the stars in the flesh provides a more accurate reading. HOWEVER, it is clear from this website that even eyewitness accounts can differ greatly too. I suppose height is in the eye of the beholder!

Lenad said on 3/Oct/08
You get lost Hugh, stop lying about meeting celebs.
Mister Lennon said on 3/Oct/08
I saw it too, Hugh and Mr R. And yes, connery was pretty big. He had half an inch on Jim Carrey, who is a solid 6'1 guy. He looked about 6'2, he is 78 years old now. So, at peak , he could has been perfectly a 6'2 and a half guy or close to 6'3.
Hugh said on 3/Oct/08
Get lost Lenad we don't need losers like you. Actaully Mr. R I found a picture of that AFI salute. It shows Connery standing next to Jim Carrey. He looks half an inch taller. And Carrey is at least 6ft1.5. Does anyone know how to download pictures on to this site.
Mr. R said on 3/Oct/08
I saw Sean Connery last night at The AFI salute. He walked right past me, and at this point he is about 6-1. He was taller than myself at 5-11.5, but not by much. Incidently, he looked very gaunt and sickly. Has he been ill?
Lenad said on 2/Oct/08
Then Hugh why the hell did he say he was 6'1.5? Now for the last time you never stood face to face with Connery and you've never seen Jackson and Costner. Its either your imagination or your a lier. Get off.
Viper said on 2/Oct/08
Connery doesnt look like hes lost any height to me. If he has its only a half inch.

6-1 1/2 peak now just 6-1 seems to make the most sense to me.

Hugh, why are you also ignoring the Bond tailors measurement of 6-1 1/2? I think more than likely that supposed 6-2.4 measurement was in shoes.
Hugh said on 2/Oct/08
I was standing face to face with Connery. I shook the man's hand for crying out loud. As for Jackson and Costner they were standing a few feet away from me so that might have been an illusion. Aswell Connery WAS measured at 6ft2.5 when he was younger.
Ray said on 2/Oct/08
Adam,
1. I remember Gray about 0.5" taller than Connery in Diamonds are forever.
2. The guy who played Peter Franks in Diamonds said in an interview that he was 6'2" and he was also visibly taller than Connery.
3. Jimmy Dean (6'3") who played Willard Whyte was quite a bit taller than Sean in the same film...2 inches maybe.
4. Michael Caine (6'1") was 0.5" smaller than Sean in man who would be King.(Caine in my opinion was never 6'2").

Here's some info from The World is Never Enough website:

After literally years of exhaustive research on this, I have gotten the exact and correct heights of the six Bond actors.
This information comes from my having personally sought out and gathered the information from the James Bond 007 production company Eon (they measure each Bond), from the Wax Museum, and finally, in order to get the exact current heights, from the actors themselves in person, which also allowed a comparison to my own height (6'2" 1.88m barefoot), as well as to the other Bonds. Believe whatever you will, but these are the EXACT barefoot heights, both when they were first cast as Bond and the current heights.
Sean Connery was 6'1 1/2" (1.87m) in height barefoot when he played Bond. Today he is 6'1" (1.85m) in height barefoot. The original 6'1 1/2" (1.87m) barefoot height has been verified by Eon whom measured him, the Wax Museum whom measured him, and by Connery himself, when he was asked about the measurements. The 6'1" (1.85m) barefoot height today was the current barefoot height given by Connery himself and matches the height that he appeared to be in person.
Viper said on 1/Oct/08
So saying hes 6-1 1/2 peak is downgrading him? LOL Thats what the Bond tailors supposedly measured him at. Connery has even admitted to being 6-1 1/2 as well. And also I dont think hes shorter than 6-1 even today, which many people think he is 6-0 these days which I dont buy.
Lenad said on 1/Oct/08
Hugh It was an illusion that you saw Costner and Jackson. Also when you met Sean Connery you imagined he was standing next to you.
Hugh said on 1/Oct/08
Thank you adam. I agree.
adam said on 1/Oct/08
At least 6-2. Could have been half an inch taller. Viper has a bad habit downgrading everyone. He obviously gets some kind of orgasmic feeling when doing that...

All in all Connery wasn`t just 6-1 peak, no way. Connery was taller than the 6`0"+ Harrison Ford when he was what, 60? Also Connery towered over Robert Shaw who was wearing lifts, was taller than the supposedly 6-2 Charles Gray, taller than 6-1 Gert Frobe and so on and so on....
Lebensdorf said on 1/Oct/08
Nah. 6'1 and a half perhaps at the most at his peak (measured to be this height by James Bond tailors, who measured each of the actors). Later in his career, about 6'1 or 6 feet even, which is probably what he is now. Never 6'2.
Lenad said on 30/Sep/08
Ray your right Connery is a little under 6'1 nowadays.
Hugh said on 30/Sep/08
Well he was measured according to Rob at 6ft2.5 at his peak.
Hugh said on 30/Sep/08
Ok then Lenad. If he's not 6ft2 then why is he listed here as 6ft2. Figure that one out.
Hugh said on 30/Sep/08
Lenad SHUT UP! I saw Costner and Jackson from a few feet. I didn't meet them. Connery I DID meet.
Ray said on 30/Sep/08
I shoulda said he was in a pub in NY....obviously not at the game.
Ray said on 30/Sep/08
My mate met him in New York this year during the Calcutta Cup game (Scotland v England). He bumped into him in the gent's and he was surprised at how much he had shrank. My mate must have had the impression he was much taller than he had expected. I have a couple of pics of him that he took but he's sitting down unfortunately. He's a lot more lean than you'd think. I stood up with my mate and asked him was he as tall as me (6'1"). He said perhaps a little shorter.
Lenad said on 30/Sep/08
Youve met Kevin Costner (6'2), Samuel l Jackson (6'3) and several others. No good keeping making up lies and no offence but Frank2's claim is a hell of a lot more accurate. Sean was never 6'3. He seemed roughly 6'2 and 6'1 1/2 is fine for him. He was well built which could make him seem about 6'2 but if he was a 6 footer in the late 90's then 6'1 could be his peak. End of story Hugh youve never met him.
Hugh said on 29/Sep/08
Sorry Lenad. I DID meet the guy so stop saying that I upgrade people. GOD you're almost as bad as Viper.
Gonzalo said on 29/Sep/08
I would be amazed if Connery was under 6`1 even nowadays
Lenad said on 28/Sep/08
Dont know what the hell I was thinking when I said he was 6'2-6'2.5. Wasnt thinking straight and Hugh quit upgrading people, seriously.
Lenad said on 27/Sep/08
He was probably closer to 6'1 than 6'2 if he was only 6'0.5 in the mid 90's and Hugh stop lying youve never met the guy.
Hugh said on 26/Sep/08
Ray, That might be his height now. I'd like to know when Mr. Connery actually said that. If it's a recent quote, then it's because he's lost a bit of height. But I would say Connery would said 6ft2.5 maybe 40 years ago. He really did give the impression he was 6ft3.
Gonzalo said on 26/Sep/08
I don
Ray said on 25/Sep/08
How is it really silly James?? This is what this site is all about...some discussion on celebs height. Its just a bit of fun.
I've posted this before but I will do it again: Sean Connery says when asked about his height, that he is "6 feet 2 inches, well ok, actually about 6 feet 1 and a half inches really." (I think that proves he knows his height accurately)

Also on Jay Leno in the mid nineties, Sean was asked by Jay "How tall are you ?" Sean: "About 6'1.5", depending on the state of my shoe leather". He was quoting his height here in shoes. He was in his late '60s then so 6'1.5" - ~1 inch for shoes = ~6'0.5".
Ray said on 23/Sep/08
Sorry Hugh, no offense but there's no way he was 6'3" back in the day. Close to 6'2" on a good day I can buy for him in his prime but anything more than that is out of the question. Also when you are standing beside someone there's no way you can be sure of their height to within 0.5". 1998 I believe he was 6'0.5" barefoot. Just out of curiosity Hugh, have you been measured by stadiometer ? I used to think I was close to 6'2" around 187 cm (~6'1.75") but was measured by stadiometer at an osteopath at literally a hair under 6'1" (185.3 cm). Cheers
Hugh said on 21/Sep/08
Connery was about half an inch shorter than me in 1998. He was without a doubt 6ft2.5 if not 6ft3 back in the day. I suprised by how tall he was.
Hugh said on 20/Sep/08
Sure Harrison is under 6ft these days. I can admit that. But he was 6ft1 at his peak. As for Connery, I am beggining to come around to the idea of him being more 6ft1.5. But that really depends if Julian Glover is also under 6ft2.
Lenad said on 19/Sep/08
Michelle Pfeiffer made Harry look no taller than 180cm flat and that was 2000.
Ray said on 18/Sep/08
Well I think Harrison Ford's height is highly debatable. He never gives the impression of a guy 6'1". He always comes across to me in his prime a weak 6'
Ray said on 17/Sep/08
I agree with Frank2. He's about 6' these days. That's pretty good going for his age. If I get to 80 and lose only 1.5" I would be happy with that. You lose a cm every decade from 50 onwards. So by my reckoning he should have lost close to 2". He's quite active and well built with good posture still so 1.5" drop is about right.
Lenad said on 16/Sep/08
I dont quite believe Franks 6'0 encounter of Sean Connery. In his Bond films he did look around 6'2 and i doubt Sean would have given a damn if he was 1cm under 6'2 seeing as he wasnt short by any means.
Viper said on 16/Sep/08
I think he was 6-1.5 at peak and is now 6-1.
Hugh said on 16/Sep/08
I think he was 6ft2.5 at his peak. He just looked considerably taller than other 6ft1 guys. I think he's maintained most of his height but he is likely to shrink over the next few years.
Ray said on 16/Sep/08
I very much doubt he's only lost half and inch considering he's just shy of 80 yrs old. I think some people don't realise that someone who is a legit 6' barefoot is actually quite tall. There's so many guys telling people they're 6' when in reality they're 5'10"-10.5" and this is distorting what 6' really is.
Viper said on 16/Sep/08
I still think Connery is 6-1, not below it.
Ray said on 15/Sep/08
Jordan, who is Shawn Connery ? I think that sounds about right though... 6'1.5" at his peak, 6'1" by Last Crusade and nowadays about 6' or lidl over.
Hugh said on 13/Sep/08
Up close it's noticeable.
Jordan said on 12/Sep/08
My dad who is 6'1 met Connery in 1969 and said he had to look up slitly to shawn. So 6'1.5 at least i think.
Hugh said on 12/Sep/08
True but even half an inch can look noticeable at times. For instance my uncle whose 6ft is married to a woman whose 5ft11.5! and most of the time he looks taller. It's a strange world. My advice to anyone is don't let your physical appearance (height being one of them) prevent you from enjoying life.
Hugh said on 11/Sep/08
Sorry James you already told me that. My bad
Hugh said on 11/Sep/08
James, you said you fancied this girl who was 5ft11. I meant to say did you feel taller than her. It sounded like you were put off because of her height. Thats all. Sorry for not making myself clearer.
Viper said on 11/Sep/08
Genetics plays a big part, but diet will negate some of that.
Anonymous said on 11/Sep/08
I would have thought genetics plays 100% of the part in how tall you become.
Hugh said on 11/Sep/08
A lot of the time I do. Not around my family though. My bro is 6ft3.5, my dad was 6ft4 at his peak. Alot of my uncles are 6ft4 to 6ft6. Did you feel taller then the 5ft11er?

James, are you happy with your height or do you want to keep growing?
Hugh said on 10/Sep/08
Nicole, I tend to like tall Women. 5ft8 is a good height. 5ft10 aswell.
nicole said on 10/Sep/08
Wow, 6ft 7inch is really extrem.When i was 15years old my first friend was exactly 6ft tall.Then i was about 5ft5inch.Hugh, which kind of women do you like more tall or short ?
nicole said on 9/Sep/08
Thank you Hug.It`s really difficult to find the true height of the actors and all the others - because we can not messure them self and then the have different shoes on, so the barefeet height it`s difficult to evaluate.
Hugh said on 9/Sep/08
Viper, I'm sorry for arguing. You're right, I can sometimes be a bit ridiculous with the estimations on this site. Connery may very well have been no taller than 6ft1.5.
Hugh said on 9/Sep/08
Nicole you are TALL. 5ft8 and up is tall for a woman. James how tall are you?
nicole said on 9/Sep/08
The doctor measured me on monday four a clock pm exactly 5ft8.5inch.He said after this to me probably at morning you are taller.He thougt that i`m more like 5ft9inch or a hair over that.
nicole said on 9/Sep/08
For me is a man tall when he is over 6ft0.5 inch mark.But the most men in my life are all over this and much taller :-).But important is also when someone has the heart on the right place.
Viper said on 8/Sep/08
Hugh, you think Glenn is 5-8 1/2!!! And you think 99 percent of the people on here are taller than what Rob gives the,.
Hugh said on 8/Sep/08
I don't upgrade at all. If I'm wrong about Connery being 6ft2 now then howcome Rob has him listed at 6ft2 lol. Work that one out.
nicole said on 8/Sep/08
I think men who are well built look taller and a good example is Sean.My friend is 187cm and 72kg and don`t look that tall beside his friend Otto who is 185cm but 89kg and well built and strong and all people see Otto taller.
Viper said on 8/Sep/08
Hugh, you upgrade everyone on here, lol. No wonder you would think that about me. Connery has even said he was no taller than 6-1 1/2 at his peak. Ill take his word.
Ed(1) said on 7/Sep/08
I could see 6ft1.5 peak for Connery, and 6ft-6ft0.5 now. This would fit well with the difference between Ford and Connery in Last Crusade, where Connery looked to have a good 1.5-2 inches on Ford.
Hugh said on 6/Sep/08
Viper, you have an annoying habit of downgrading peoples heights. I'm sorry but that's not how it works.
Viper said on 6/Sep/08
He was never 6-2 to begin with.
Hugh said on 5/Sep/08
Sorry I meant 6ft2.5. not 6ft.5
Hugh said on 4/Sep/08
'6ft1 or a hair under' lol.

Connery as of 1989 was 6ft.5 or 189cm. Started to shrink gradually 5-6 years ago, losing half an inch making him 6ft2 flat nowadays.
Frank2 said on 29/Aug/08
Nope. Not when I saw and spoke with him. That or I'm a lot taller than I thought.
Hugh said on 28/Aug/08
I think he's 6ft2 now and 6ft2.5 at his peak.
Frank2 said on 26/Aug/08
Possibly.
Frank2 said on 25/Aug/08
Well, when I saw him at Fox back in 1999 he wasn't 6'2". Not nearly that tall and I walked up and shook his hand and we spoke for a couple of minutes. I'd say he was about 6'. I'm 5'11" and he was only slightly taller. But after all, he is an old man so I suspect he lost height. I'd say peak was 6'1". But he could have been 6'2" when he was younger.

I believe Sean is hovering around the 6' mark these days. Not under 6' though. As for him being measured at over 6'2" at 70...I find that laughable.

Shawn, have your eyes checked. Connery was more than an inch taller than Cage. Watch that crap movie again

I think sean is 5'11 nowadays... In the rock he looked 1 Inch shorter than Cage.
Cage is 6'0 tall
adam said on 18/Jul/08
Sean doesn`t seem to really care about his accurate height that much... He knows he`s a tall man and doesn`t give a damn about half an inch BUT...

The guy was measured a little over 6-2 somewhere at the age of 70??? That sure means that he had to be at least a legit 189cm peak. He has himself claimed only 6-1
Gonzalo said on 18/Jul/08
He wasn

Nowadays 185cm (6'1")
Ray said on 16/Jul/08
No offense Hebbie but that's absurd. It is accepted by most people that Connery was about 0.5" taller than Caine in that film.
I firmly believe Connery in his prime was 6'1.5" (as he said himself)
Caine was 6'1" in his prime. When has Caine ever looked 6'2" ???
Hebbie said on 12/Jul/08
Michael Caine was at least an inch taller than Connery in the movie: "The Man who would be King"
Hugh said on 4/Jul/08
Sean is 6ft2in
Viper said on 27/Jun/08
If he actually said he was 6-1 1/2 in his Bond days, then I certaintly buy it. Even the Bond tailors say they measured him at 6-1 1/2. That makes me believe that his measurement in his bodybuilding days was in his shoes.
TNTinCA said on 27/Jun/08
I think he has still retained most of his height. He is also fairly muscular which makes him look larger.
Lenad said on 27/Jun/08
What 6'2 today? He seems it at times. I could be wrong. He just seems to be a tall guy.
rob roy said on 27/Jun/08
one of my favorites "james bond" 007 i think he's about 6'2"
Lenad said on 24/Jun/08
Well I still think 6 ft 1.5 (187cm) today and peak 6 ft 2.25 (189cm).
Viper said on 24/Jun/08
The 6-2.4 could be in shoes.
Ray said on 24/Jun/08
Lenad, he said he was 6'1.5" back in his Bond days. He said it not me. I'll take his word on it.
Lenad said on 23/Jun/08
Okay in his body building days he got measured at 6'2.4. That might be a weak 6'2 1/2 flat. So his peak is 6'2.25. I rest my case.
Lenad said on 23/Jun/08
Don't know why The tailors claimed 6'1.5 without shoes in his Bond days. More like 6'1.5 today and I'd say 6'2-6'3 range then. Glenn and Hugh, do you agree?
glenn said on 22/Jun/08
yup.
Hugh said on 20/Jun/08
I think he's marginally over it.
Lenad said on 16/Jun/08
Bits of evidence suggest he was marginally under 6'2 and other suggests he was marginally over it.
Hugh said on 14/May/08
From a distance he gave the impression of a 6ft3+ guy. But 6ft2 when up close.

I wrote before:

Now Sean Connery is a man who is really tall and

wannabe tall guys.

I meant Connery is a genuine tall man, the others I named
are fake, shorter guys.
Catsman said on 14/May/08
Ray - that's a great post! Interestingly, I have recently got Michael Caine's autobiography in which he is pictured with Connery. Connery is definitely taller in several pics, so maybe this sheds light on the Caine questionable claims of 6'2? There is also a very good one of Roger Moore and Connery, and Moore looks about two inches shorter. A further pic shows Caine and Connery with boxing legend Joe Louis, who was said to be 6'1 at one time. Connery looks a touch taller, Caine a little shorter.

When Connery met Mr Henderson for the first time Sean looked to have about 3 cm on Gray.

In Diamonds are forever there is a scene where Charles Gray and Sean are right beside each other and Gray is taller by about 0.5". I don't know where you are getting Gray being 1.5" taller ??

Charles Gray is listed as 6'2.Connery looked 1.5 inches taller in Y O L T.

The man himself said he was 6'1.5" (during his Bond years). End of discussion as far as I'm concerned.
Hugh said on 1/May/08
6ft2 flat today.
Ray said on 1/May/08
From "the World is never enough" website;
"Sean Connery says when asked about his height, that he is "6 feet 2 inches, well ok, actually about 6 feet 1 and a half inches really." In the 1983 Warner Brothers James Bond movie Never Say Never Again, Connery is described as being, about 6'2". On I M DB Connery is listed as being 6'2 1/2". Connery's studio audition height, which would be his height with shoes on, was in the 1950's 6'3". He was previously listed on I M DB as being 6'1", and before that he was listed there as being 6'3". When asked about Connery's height, Eon gives a height of 6'1". But Eon and United Artists promoted him as being 6'3". In the 1953 Mr. Universe competition, Connery competed in the "Tall Man's Division". The Tall Man's Division was said to be for "contestants measuring at least 6 feet and 1/4 inches in height barefoot". Therefore we know that Connery must be at least that tall. The Bond tailors give a height of 6' 1 1/2" inches for Connery. CelebrityHeights lists Connery as being 6'1". Connery's official measured Wax Museum height was 6' 1 1/2" tall without shoes.
Conclusion: Sean Connery is 6'1 1/2" (1.86m) tall without shoes on, and about 6'2 1/2" (1.89m) to 6'3" (1.91m) tall with normal heeled shoes on."
Ray said on 1/May/08
There is no way Atkinson was ever 6'1"...LOL. He was at best 5'11". If you saw Blackadder he was considerably shorter (more than 3 inches) than Hugh Laurie (6'2.5").
Big bob said on 1/May/08
I met Connery in 1983.I was 12 and exactly 6 foot tall .Connery was 2 inches taller than me.Atkinson has been listed as 6 foot one and could have been that height 25 years ago.Most people on this site agree that Connery was 188-189cm when playing Bond.
Ray said on 30/Apr/08
Big Bob, FYI... Atkinson is 5'11.25" and Shaw is 5'10" according to this site
nicole said on 30/Apr/08
Big Bob, Rowan Atkinson is never 6ft 1inch. 5ft 11inch in my opinion. And than you give 1.5inch to this height than you have Seans height.
Big bob said on 30/Apr/08
In Nener say never again Connery looked about 1.5 inches taller than Rowan Atkinson 6' 1".He was @ least 3 inches taller than Robert Shaw in F R W L.Shaw is listed as 5' 11".
glenn said on 29/Apr/08
hugh is right.i met connery plenty of times,over a 20 year period.you cant judge just from one or 2 encounters.especially if the man shrunk.he was 6-2.5 min peak.6-2.75 max.6-1.5 to 6-2 now.
nicole said on 29/Apr/08
I`m not sure about it. When Ben saw him it was only one meter from one to the other man. So Sean was near Ben and both men were saying a short hello and with good posture.
Ray said on 29/Apr/08
No disrespect Hugh, but I think that's nonsense. 6' 2.75" !!That would mean Michael Caine was 6'2.25".That's just plain rediculous. 187 cm (a little over 6' 1.5") was his peak height. He may have been close to 6'2.75" back in the day with generous heeled shoes on. Several sources give a peak height of 6'2" which I think is rounded up slightly. Rob is usually spot on and he says 6'2" peak height. The Bond tailors said 6'1.5". Sean said himself 6'2" then retracted it and said actually 6'1.5". How much more proof do you need ?
Hugh said on 28/Apr/08
Nicole you are fighting a losing battle. No disrespect or anything. I feel Connery should be given a peak height 6ft2.75.
nicole said on 27/Apr/08
My godfather thinks peak height 187cm barefeet! not more is correct for Sir Sean Connery.
Hugh said on 27/Apr/08
Thank you Scott B. He's no less than 6ft2 these days.
jimbo said on 25/Apr/08
In the Bond films looked 6 foot 3 (with shoes).Well over six foot amd abot 185 lbs.

Sean Connery is 6'2. 6'3 at peak.
nicole said on 24/Apr/08
Saw yesterday evening my godfather Ben. He was surpringsly near my town and came to visit me. I spoken once again about Sean`s height. He said directly Sean was not more than 184cm tall when he saw him twice.I trust him.I show him this site and he find this great.He also said he understands people who thought Sean is bigger (near 190cm) but he never was that.He thinks peak height 187cm not more is correct for Sir Sean Connery.
Hugh said on 23/Apr/08
I meant 2 inches actually. I just can't see Sean being less than 6ft2.
Ray said on 23/Apr/08
Hugh said "Watch Dr. No. He's at least 1.5 inches taller than 6ft1.5 Jack Lord".

How does that make Connery at least 6'2". I've pointed out that Lord was 6' from FBI records. 6' + 1.5" = 6'1.5".
Hugh said on 22/Apr/08
That still makes COnnery at least 6ft2. This is the thing with Connery. He's a very fit man especially for his age. And when your that fit your guranteed not to lose that much height. So 6ft2.75 in his youth and 6ft2 now is correct.
Ray said on 22/Apr/08
Jack Lord is 6'0". Its well documented he claimed 6'2" but was 2 inches under this in reality. "An FBI file regarding a stalker lists his height as 6' 0", 2 inches shorter than his official biography"
Hugh said on 20/Apr/08
Nicole, watch Dr. No. He clearly towers over Jack Lord who is 6ft1.5 or 6ft2. He was 6ft3 or a tad less back in 1962.
nicole said on 20/Apr/08
Thought Jack Lord is 6ft.
glenn said on 19/Apr/08
hugh is right.
nicole said on 19/Apr/08
Very good example Ray.And yes Joe Robinson is slightly taller (0,5inch) than Sean.They are near in height.So, that makes it realistic.You also have the Bond-case with all the Bondfilms in Ray?
Hugh said on 18/Apr/08
Watch Dr. No. He's at least 1.5 inches taller than 6ft1.5 Jack Lord.
Ray said on 18/Apr/08
Joe Robinson who played Peter Franks in Diamonds are forever was interviewed and he described himself and Sean as 6'2" ,200 pounds. I seem to remember Robinson having a slight advantage on Sean...maybe 0.5". Sean was only 41 when this film was made so he would have had no height loss. There's is 0 chance of Sean being close to 6'3" at any stage of his life. Another example in the same film is when he meets Willard Whyte played by Jimmy Dean who is 6'3". Dean had Sean by AT LEAST an inch. I would love to hear of some examples where he was nearing 6'3".
Hugh said on 18/Apr/08
I think he's listed perfectly at 6ft2. But in his youth was nearing 6ft3.

you are right mimi.people dont have to put up with me.and they shouldnt have to deal with my attitude.but im a character.thats me.and no,you think you would keep coming back, but there wouldnt be a site if it wasnt for me,and i made it get popular.i dont care how arrogant that sounds.its the blatant truth.i only state it when people forget i have more right to express myself the way i do.its robs site,but i know all about celebrities.my stories are just a crucial as my pics.

thanks hugh.its pleasant to see support.not backlash.she doesnt have to like what i say.but in her case maybe its better to be silent.but she can say what she wants.but i will defend to the gory end.thats my approach.gruff.people should know this about me.those i offend.im sorry.those that dont understand,fuk off.that doesnt mean you mimi.for now at least.
glenn said on 15/Apr/08
of course people wouldve come back to the site.but rob was going to pack it in.thats a fact.and people do come her mainly for my pics.so you get off your bull****.your just dont like me and i could care less.this isnt a popularity contest.people here dont like me cause i tell it as it is.i dont pull punches.sometimes its better to stay silent.not when i read constant bull.when there is more people that hate me than like me,then ill retire.even bon jovi has millions that hate him.and 100 million that love him.not that im even remotely famous at all.an example.so your in the minority i hope.im still waiting for more people to side with you.i dont see any yet.if i see a couple it would faze me.more than several,then its time for me to move on.

i still have no clue what you think you do that entitles arrogance in you. your reactionary and confrontational behavior obviously did not allow you enough time to read that i said that we all appreciate what you share with others...but that STILL doesn't entitle you or make it any less annoying for you to react with such arrogance. you claim to be the savior of this site, which alone is such a turnoff for you to even say...but to be honest, i would've kept coming back regardless of your contributions or not.

get off your high horse.
glenn said on 15/Apr/08
you know,the more i realise what one sided bull that was the more i want to retort.if one doesnt like my arrogance,tough shat.because it is i that not only post pics of celebs and me throughout the years for free,(a-list at that,not convention or wrestler crap),but have provided all of you around the world true first hand account stories and gaugings from 20 years experience.and yes,i have been wrong,but seldom.who hasnt? but i guess this site wouldve been such a sucsess without me huh? thats not what rob said before.he was going to pack it in till i came along.so please,by all means,all of you that dont like me revolt against me and tell rob.ill be sure to leave the site with wrestling and convention names.rightfully arrogant i am,yes.an asshole,im not.if i were,i wouldnt have fans,or shoud i feel more comfortable by saying,friends here.maybe you people would be better off studying dvd stills for the duration of this sites existance and believe that stallone is 5-8,clooney 5-10,willis 5-11 etc.
glenn said on 15/Apr/08
whats also amazing is that most people that complain also have contributed nothing but hot air and fantasies to the site.if you were out there for 20 years and saw celebs a dozen or more times,not a few,you would be disgusted at some the stuff you read on this site too.maybe you would react differently.maybe worse.or not at all.sometimes its better to mind your business.but by all means.. speak up if thats what you want.you have a right to do that.but not to make me out a fool.
glenn said on 15/Apr/08
too bad mimi.thats the way i am.if others dont like it,speak up and ill gladly leave the site.usually the ones that complain are the ones that dont want accept the truth on someones height.speak up and complain to rob too.most people here seem to like me.
Roger Field said on 14/Apr/08
I think that I remember Lee Marvin being a bit taller than Sean Connery. I remember that Lee wore a steel Rolex Datejust watch with a blue face. I think I saw him wearing it in "The Klansman" made four or five years before I met him. Lee was standing just outside the train carriage in the studio in Munich where I did my scene checking passports in "Avalanche Express" and Mark Robson the famous director screamed at me in front of Lee for not checking an actor's passport, even though the actor was to blame, I did the scene as we rehearsed it. Well, not many people can say that they were yelled at by Mark Robson in front of Lee Marvin! Roger Field.

glenn said on 14/Apr/08
there was a scene from robin hood which i saw for the first time where connery looked 2 inches taller than costner.for a spli second standing behim him.so it wasnt perfect.but you can tell that christian slater was 5-8 tops in that movie from similiar angles.so that must mean connery is tall.and possibly taller than costner.by how much? i dont know.certainly matches what i saw in the flesh.
Hugh said on 11/Apr/08
They say Connery has lost hardly any height due to the fact that he's very fit (even today) and mantains good posture. So yeah maybe it was back in 1967 when they measured him. Since he's lost 'Hardly' any height that would still put him at 6ft2. Aswell I used to think he was no more than 6ft but that was because he was standing far away. But then I went up to meet him up close and I was suprised. You'd be too.
Ray said on 11/Apr/08
They measured him at 'a shade over 6'2"' in 2001 when he was 71 yrs old....I find that hard to believe. That would put him probably up at 6'3" or more barefoot in his youth. I presume he was measured at that height in 2001 in his shoes....I can accept that even though the man has said on countless occasions in the past he was 6' 1.5". I may not have seen him but I have heard him say in his own words ' 6'1.5" depending on the state of my shoe leather' back in the mid '90's. The vast majority of people on this page concur with that.
glenn said on 11/Apr/08
i agree he did look that in the bond films.but he was measured taller and he does give a 6-3 or did,illusion in the past,in front of me,15-18 years ago.so i would say he was 6-2.5 in youth.i havent really seen him up close recently.from a distance.still really nasty.

Sean is a genuinely tall guy, okay. 6ft2 now and 6ft2.75 back in the day.
Gonzalo said on 4/Apr/08
Roger Field, you always make interesting comments. Who looked tallest to you, Lee Marvin or Sean Connery? I guess very similar. I know it is a difficult question because we are talking about things that happen 30 or 40 years ago but your answer would be very interesting
Gonzalo said on 4/Apr/08
From left to right: Lee Marvin, Clint Eastwood, Rock Hudson, Fred McMurray, John Wayne, James Stewart, Ernst Borgnine, Michael Caine and Laurence Harvey.
Caine looks tall but, imagine how tall the others are, that he only looks taller than Borgnine. He looks 5 or 6 cms shorter than James Stewart who was measured 6`3 (1`91) by several sources
David said on 4/Apr/08

The supposed measurements dont hold any water either, because we supposedly have 2 of them. 6-2.4 for a bodybuilding competition and 6-1 1/2 from the Bond tailors.

I`m also a big fan of Sean.And it`s very difficult say the exactly height of peoples like Sean or Ben. They are both well built and stay this also when they are older.I asked all the peoples who know Ben or saw him. Everybody said min. 192cm and max 194cm.
Ray said on 1/Apr/08
Glenn,
If everyone minded their business then there would be no site. So what your saying is that anyone who hasn't met these celebs shouldn't be allowed to give their opinion ?I've seen all his films and have gauged his height against other actors. I'm a huge fan of Connery so I wouldn't be downgrading him for the sake of it. If you saw him at 6'3"... that's over 6'4" in shoes ! Sean claimed, in his own words, to be 6'1.5" (with shoes) on Leno about 10 yrs ago. He was 6'1.5 or I'll accept close to 6'2" in his youth. I think Nicole is spot on. She says her Godfather is a hair over 6'2" barefoot and Sean was 1.5" inches shorter. That confirms what Sean said himself. 6'1.5" - 1" (shoes) = 6'0.5". So I stand by my claim of 6'1.5" up to 6'2" in his youth.
John said on 31/Mar/08
188cm is a legit height. Fine height: 189.0cm or 189.5cm.
glenn said on 31/Mar/08
ray,if you never saw the man,mind your business.its absurd to make claims when you never met him.no way was connery ever shorter than 6-2 in his youth.and was very possibly 6-2.5,6-3.
nicole said on 31/Mar/08
I telephoned once again my godfahter Ben, but only his wife was there. So i said to here please messure your man and tells her about this site.An one hour later she tells me the height result. Ben is exactly 188,5cm tall without shoes. So I hope this helps for finding the true height for Sean.

Don't be bullied Nicole....stand by your claim ;-) Sean never looked 6'3". Put Sean (in his youth) in a line-up with 6'4" guys like Goldblum Fry and Neeson and he would be dwarfed by 2 - 3 ". Sean had the look of a a guy between 6'1 and 6'2". Rob says he was 6' 1.25" (186 cm) by his last film which I would agree was his height AT MOST. This claim of 6' 3" (190.5 cm) would mean he has lost ( 1.75 ") 5.5 cm since his youth. Sean is still a vibrant and well built man who I very much doubt has lost this much height.(6'1.5" = peak height).

I walked alongside Sean Connery after the film at the opening of "From Russia With Love" at the Odeon, Leicester Square in London in October 1963. While in the theater, I saw Ian Fleming wearing his trademark spotted bow tie coming down the left staircase to the foyer. Sean was suntanned and wore a dark blue suit. As he was walking away from the theater to the waiting black Rolls Royce, Sean suddenly turned and wagged his finger reprovingly at one of the girls following him from behind! The crowd pushed my upper body into the limo and the door could not be closed because my feet were still outside on the street! Sean and Diane Cilento, who was dressed in white, (already waiting in the limo), were sitting in the back of the car and they both just stared at me. I was almost on top of them. All I could say was "I'm sorry, I can't help it!" I was finally extracted from the car so that they could drive off. I'll never forget that! I am certain that Sean Connery was 6'2" right on.

Okay, Glenn i trust you.Sorry Hugh, i think i must messure my godfather Ben, it seems he is taller than 6ft1.5inch yet:-).Fact is that he is very tall when i saw him the last time in January 2007 and hes is very correct person.Maybe he is 6ft 4in and downgrad his height. Could be.
glenn said on 30/Mar/08
hugh is once again correct on both connery and ford.i saw connery at 6-3 years ago in the street.
Hugh said on 29/Mar/08
Towered over Nicholas Cage by like 2-3 inches.
Hugh said on 29/Mar/08
Harrison Ford was 6ft1 back then. I still think Connery was nearer to 6ft3.
nicole said on 29/Mar/08
Hugh, I asked once again my godfather Ben. He tells me that he was very surprised that Sean was about 1.5 inches smaller than him.My godfather was earlier 6ft2.5 in (without shoes)and looks by the way like Brian Dennehy and yet he is 6ft 1.5 inch (without shoes), a really big strong man.

he had 2.5in(6cm) on 6ft Harrison Ford in early days Indiana jones.. nowadys ford is more like 182.. Connery is at least 189cm at 1980s to early 90s.. i do think his teens days till age40s were be like 6ft2max(190cm)..
Hugh said on 27/Mar/08
He was definately over 6ft2 in his prime. In the bond movies he looks considerably taller next to 6ft1 guys.
Hugh said on 27/Mar/08
How tall is your godfather. He looked at least 6ft2 when I saw him.
nicole said on 24/Mar/08
Hugh, 6ft yet are correct without shoes for Sean.My godfather saw him skiing in crans montana and once again later in the restaurant in 1997. Sean was smaller than him (6ft1.5inch).By the way my godfather is also 63years old.
Hugh said on 24/Mar/08
6ft is ridiculous.
Ray said on 20/Mar/08
Sorry Hugh but Sean was beaten by at least an inch, possibly 2 by Jimmy dean (6'3") who played Willard Whyte in Diamonds are forever. Sean said himself 6'1.5" with his shoes on Leno. Granted he was 70 yrs old but that would mean around 6'. Peak height = 6'1.5" - 1.75" (186.5 - 187). Many people have given this height for him. There's no way he was ever 6' 3" (190.5 cm).
Hugh said on 20/Mar/08
Back in his Bond days he looked like a 190-191cm guy. These days I'd say he's a solid 6f2-6ft2.25 (188-189cm).
Matt said on 20/Mar/08
William Goldman -- legendary screenwriter and height fanaticist -- said that the only two stars he met who were taller than himself (at 6'1") were Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery. 6'1.5"+ is just about right at his prime. Shorter than the 6'4" that sometimes gets quoted, but definitely a big man. He effortlessly beats 99% of fellow actors in his movies. A notable exception is the late, great Desmond Llewellyn ("Q" in the Bond movies) who looked very lanky indeed.
Dave said on 17/Mar/08
Well if connery is 6'2 then timothy dalton is 6'2.5-6'3..... because it was said by the james bond tailor that dalton was the tallest barefoot bond actor.
Ray said on 10/Mar/08
As he said on Leno when he asked him about his height about 10 yrs ago. " about 6' 1.5" depending on the state of my shoe leather". This would indicate that he was around 6' - 6'0.5" at 70 yrs old. I'd say in his prime 6'1.75" (187 cm) as his tailor said. In any case, I'd say Sean couldn't care less about what height he is/was.
x said on 5/Mar/08
I personally think sean is 6,1.5 cause I read that timothy dalton was the tallest bond and he's like 6,2 Moore is like 6,1.25 brosnan is exactly 6,1 I remember hearing brosnan was the shortest bond this was before craig I'm not sure about lazinbe or however u spell it
Ivan 6'2.25 said on 6/Feb/08
the tailor who measure sean connery in the 60s for the bond movies said he was exactly 6'1.75.nowdays look to be 6'05 or 6'1 tall.
Anonymous said on 29/Jan/08
i have never seen Connery in person but i've seen Michael Caine and he is 6'2" like he says he is.Caine has talked about his height,complaining that he sometimes wouldnt get a part as too tall by Hollywood standards.Connery has always looked about the same height with Caine ,maybe just 0.5" taller.
I believe 6'2.5" peak height,maybe he lost half to one inch later on but still looks tall even in old age.
Mario said on 28/Jan/08
Neil Connery? Did you met him rob?

[Editor Rob: no, just showing what his brother said.]
Editor Rob said on 23/Jan/08
His brother said "Sean is 6ft 2in and I'm 6ft"
steve said on 28/Nov/07
At his peak had a perfect h/w combination 190 lbs and 190 cms.
Nicola said on 27/Nov/07
Oh, I see he even looks slightly shorter than 6'2'' (1m88). So, his exact height is 6 ft 1.75 in (1m87)
