I'm six foot four and a half and I have a temper. - Playboy magazine, 1992
I did have one problem playing Einstein. Everyone was afraid I was too tall. I was going to walk along all stooped over. But then I met Tim Robbins, who's about 6 foot 5 and next to him I looked like a midget.
-- Walter Matthau in 1994

Definitely more likely over 195cm than under, 6'5 for a peak Tim Robbins!

Hi Rob. A bit off-topic. In your opinion, what is the ideal lift height without looking unnaturally taller?

For context, my latest measurement was 5'7.5 taken in the hospital at around noon.

Thanks in advance. I love your content.
Editor Rob
Lift height? I think you can use short or average legs to an advantage and get 2 inches worth of lifts without people thinking 'This guy's packing'.

Of course when you start to walk about, opinion might change. I always remember seeing the actor James Kyson Lee trying to walk in elevator boots and even Jenny knew he had an unnatural stride.

If you have long legs to begin with and try packing 2 inchers, then the proportional difference between leg length and torso might catch a lot more gazes from people...
Arch Stanton said on 9/Sep/23
He could really look 6'5.5 if anything in some of his early 90s films like The Player and Bob Roberts I thought. 6'4.5 was probably a very relaxed measurement at the end of a long day...

Tim Robbins is absolutely 6'5", unless he suddenly shrunk since I last saw him before the Pandemic (doubt it). Go to the Actor's Gang in Culver City and see a show and you're likely to see him and judge for yourself.

High peak height 6'5.5 low peak height 6'5.
Canson said on 28/Apr/23
@Viper: best case it’s a low or 6’4 5/8 was. Worst case 6’4 1/2 extreme low
viper said on 19/Apr/23
Hes just a guy where the 6-4.5 looks like a low or even extreme low.

He looks 6-4.75-6-5.25
James B 5ft8 said on 15/Apr/23
Rob has he claimed 6ft5 before?
Editor Rob
Yeah he said 6ft 5 on a chat show once.

tim robbins is 6'4 MJ is .5inch taller than him,,, leave canson alone, the truth tends to Make people upset
Jjack said on 24/Jul/22
I agree big guy, but who knows if co-stars lie about their height
Andrea said on 17/Jul/22
Andrey, I'm open to anything, but for me the most logical thing is that he was just being (very) honest. If he wanted to downplay his height, it would have made much more sense to come out with something like 6'4, instead of specific claims such as 6'4.5 or 6'5 on a good day (which, btw, perfectly fit with each other).
I know he has also claimed 6'5, but it's perfectly understandable (and still honest in fact) that a guy who is a bit under a mark will eventually round up.
And yes, I'm the first to say that he could even seem over 6'5 compared to some actors, but that's because they're probably overlisted, like Clancy Brown in fact.
Tall Sam said on 16/Jul/22
It would be an interesting comparison with peak Jordan and Robbins, you may have been able to lay a book across their heads and it’d be even. It’s funny that we think of Robbins as huge in the world of actors while Jordan was merely under average height wise in the world of basketball.
Canson said on 16/Jul/22
@Mickie: one of the issues is that you get some strong 6’4 guys that are listed here at 6’4.75 when they’re 6’4.25-.5 or some that may claim 6’5 which makes his claim look less believable. I agree with Vincent Caleb that he can look 6’5” though but 6’4.75 and 6’5 aren’t much different. And in his case maybe 6’4.5 is his extreme low and maybe he measures 6’4.75 or maybe it was 6’4 5/8 at an extreme low and maybe he’s really 6’4 7/8 which makes him effectively 6’5 esp at lunchtime
Mickie said on 15/Jul/22
He's claimed both 6'4.5" and 6'5" - I wouldn't argue above or below either mark so 6'4.75" is probably the best listing. I'd like to see how he would compare to Michael Jordan.
Andrey200 said on 15/Jul/22
Andrea said on 14/Jul/22
What I'm saying is that Tim probably knows it better... Both his claims suggest he was under 6'5, so unless he was mismeasured or something, I don't see how he could have been the full 6'5. I mean, what's the point of claiming 6'4.5 or even 6'5 on a good day, if he actually was 6'5? Another story would be if say he listed himself at 6'4 on his resume, in that case it still makes sense to say he was taller than that as it's a known fact that very tall actors sometimes downplay their height, but his claims are pretty specific. Sure, if it wasn't for them, I probably wouldn't argue against a 6'5 listing, as I agree that he could certainly pass for that, but any 6'4.5-6'4.75 guy can.

People have their own logic for claiming the heights they do. Maybe he was downplaying, maybe it was a measurement from younger days and he grew and hadn't measured in a while. As for weak 6'5 range actors looking 6'5 - possible, but I wouldn't apply it to Robbins as he never looked under 6'5 with actors whose heights we can certify (Morgan Freeman, Clancy Brown, Vincent D'Onofrio, Sean Penn, etc).

He has also claimed 6'5 - such as in Click Here. He specifically corrects Conan who mistakenly calls Robbins 6'4.
Editor Rob
I think Robbins at some stage did get a sub 6ft 5 measurement, but then maybe on another day he could have gotten 6ft 5...

Before Big Lewis had his official CelebHeights measurement, he was telling people he was 6ft 2.

Now that he got 6ft 2.75, he's claiming almost 6ft 3...
Vincent Caleb said on 14/Jul/22
Most convincing 6’5” I have seen.

avrjoe said on 14/Jul/22
Yeah I believe actors as tall as Tim would if anything down play their height. I think his peak height was 6'5.5 to 6'6. Gives off a much taller impression that some other 6'5 actors.
Canson said on 13/Jul/22
@Andrey: yea on film he could pull off a solid 6’5”. However, just in the flesh, I wouldn’t have thought him to be much taller than Christopher Lee who’s listed 6’4.5” here on the site. Lee has long proportions as well which is, in part, why Rob listed him at 6’4.5 as opposed to his 6’4 claim. The other part of it is that he appeared over 6’4” flat next to other actors on screen
Andrey200 said on 12/Jul/22
Andrea said on 10/Jul/22
While you could argue that 6'4.5 was a modest claim, I don't see how he could have been the full 6'5 (or even over) when he also claimed to be 6'5 on a good day. Well, unless he was mismeasured, which again could be said for everyone...
6'4.5-6'4.75 I think is fine for a peak Tim, a very tall height which can easily pass for 6'5.

How tall someone looks is a better tell than their claim - consider how many people inflate their height. Robbins didn't look below 6'5 peak.

Average guess is 6'5" just give him the full 6'5 rob instead of 6ft 4.75in
Andrey200 said on 8/Jul/22
Rob, how tall do you think Tim looks with Bob Gunton in The Shawshank Redemption? Gunton was 48-49 in that film, so probably hadn’t lost much height if any. To be safe we can say he was 6’1 range, and Tim looks at least 4.5 inches taller. It also wouldn’t surprise me if Gunton had a slight shoe advantage because the film makes a point about the warden’s shoes being well kept while the prisoners’ aren’t. Robbins also frequently lost some height in posture yet still towered nearly everyone. I will not argue him to have been closer to 6’6 range, but 195 seems too low.
Editor Rob
Could look a big 6ft 5 with Bob
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jul/22
In numerous 90s films he could certainly pass for a legit 197cm Napier.
Jw.Napier said on 6/Jul/22
Looks like 6ft6 in what I've seen
Jawilder said on 4/Jul/22
6’5
Alex V. said on 30/Jun/22
With O'Brian, Holmes sometimes looks shorter, others, taller and Conan has stated that Tim is taller than himself.
Andrey200 said on 23/May/22
With Sean Penn he looks 6'5. No less in The Shawshank Redemption, The Player, and other 90s films.
Vincent Caleb said on 20/May/22
So Rob, do you believe that if measured, Tim Robbins would be shorter than Pete Holmes who is listed the full 6’5”?
Editor Rob
Of course Tim has a chance of measuring 6ft 5.

@Canson, never learned a thing just went back to going on about IQ. So what if I have used different names on this site, it's not illegal and I don't keep tabs on it nobody cares.
Again you got smart, were shown up and having a tantrum.
Check previous comments, many agree the photo with Stern is not reliable.

You don’t seem to want to admit you’re wrong. You began this. Not me. I called a simple fact (truth) about a statement you made. And how am I keeping tabs? Both usernames are right there. So you post under multiple names. And That’s a shame. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. And quit saying many. A few people have said that and you do see that Rob lists Stern half inch taller than Robbins currently?

So there you go, you admitted being a smart alex, instead of debating height you went with going after grammar then IQ.

No you got smart back with me. Well the other poster did unless you’re now admitting that you post under multiple usernames. Maybe you do? You don’t appear to have a high IQ from your post

Most people on here agree Tim's peak was at least 6'5 and instead of giving an argument against you tried to get smart and then acted shocked and amazed that I called you out on it.

No you called out this statement below. And it wasn’t even directed at you unless like I said, you use multiple usernames. And you said 6’5+. Most people are arguing a flat 6’5”. All I said was that he claimed 6’5 and 6’4.5 so I doubt he was 6’5+

Canson said on 13/Mar/22
Most easiest isn’t proper grammatically. And he wasn’t over 6’5 if he claimed 6’5 and 6’4.5” and was shorter than Howard Stern

jabtr said on 24/Feb/22
The most easiest 6ft5+ guy I've seen, might be shorter now though? Maybe a 6ft5 peak

You really aren’t intelligent or you are illiterate
viper said on 25/Apr/22
IMO Robbins should be upgraded to a full 6-5
viper said on 25/Apr/22
Even 6-4.5 for an extreme low is a bit hard to believe.

I could buy 6-4.75
Vincent Caleb said on 24/Apr/22
I don’t think there is enough good pictures of Tim and Howard to tell which one is/was taller than the other, and by how much. I’ve only seen ones like this Click Here where it’s clearly a very odd angle and we can’t even see the ground, which looks too likely be uneven. Look at how tall Howard Stern’s wife looks there compared to Tim, it’s not accurate for judging IMO. If someone has better pictures of the two then I’ll look into that.

If you look at photos of him from 94’, you can clearly see he has about 3 inches on Morgan Freeman, who I don’t think anybody debates is a solid 6’2”. He also held up very well with 6’3” Clancy brown, looking a solid 2 inches taller.


I think the best evidence for a 6’5+ Tim Robbins is actually him with Bob Gunton who is listed 6’1.5” peak here. Here’s a picture of the two on an even level (although we can’t see the footwear, I think it’s pretty safe to say that Tim didn’t have any elevator shoes on)

My guess is that this is his extreme low, and he could have been 6’5” afternoon. He looked so tall in the 90’s

What's up with you Carson? "I think the average person could tell what I was saying" You started it, so you are the last person to be lecturing people on being a grammar nazi when you knew fine well what I was originally saying.

What did I start? Please enlighten me.

This is what I said. All i said was that it wasn’t grammatically proper. That’s not an attack but obviously you took it as such. And I didn’t even reply to you unless you post under multiple usernames? Hmm. Are you admitting you do?

Canson said on 13/Mar/22
Most easiest isn’t proper grammatically. And he wasn’t over 6’5 if he claimed 6’5 and 6’4.5” and was shorter than Howard Stern

I think the listed height makes sense. It may be his low on the day and maybe he rounded down to 6’4.5” which some people do.

Click Here

A scene from The Shawshank Redemption with Tim Robbins and Clancy Brown. I don't think anyone here disagrees that Brown was a strong 6'3" then, and that's noticeably more than a 1.25" and even 1.5" difference. Looks more like 2". Even leaning back and and with a rounded back Robbins is still eye-level with Brown.
Vincent Caleb said on 20/Apr/22
@viper

In his prime he gives off taller impressions than, say Vince Vaughn. Always looked a solid or strong 6 foot 5er, in Shawshank he looks even taller than that at times.

I can’t see him under it.
viper said on 19/Apr/22
I do wonder If he downgraded himself a little.

I certainly buy Tom Selleck at 6-3.5 way more than Robbins at 6-4.5

Hasselhoff is a solid 6-4 in the 80s. I can't see Robbins barely being taller than him.

Robbins at 6-5-6-5.25 is what he usually looks to me
Vincent Caleb said on 19/Apr/22
At least 6’5”
Asiagodtone said on 16/Apr/22
definitely at least 6’5 he’s in his 60s and still edged Pablo schreiber
Chesschad said on 16/Apr/22
Maybe was measured at night? Or faulty measurement or who knows.

The two movies I've seen him in-shawshank & mystic river he towers everyone and looks more close to 6'6.

Other 6'5 actors like Vaughn don't lool as tall as him.

I think regardless that he have at least 6'5 peak easily no way was he under it.

What you think ROb
Editor Rob
His claims are interesting because 6ft 4.5, 6ft 5 and 6ft 5 on a good day.

As an actor it really makes no difference saying almost 6ft 5 or 6ft 5, unless you once measured just shy of the mark and are being honest.

That is same guys whose inflates Robbins. He wasn't over 6'4 1/2 - 6'4 3/4 peak, like he has claimed

@Editor Rob: I know Robbins wasn’t but the statement I was making was a blanket statement. That would be like someone who measures a solid 5’10” saying you’re 5’11” on a good day.
Canson said on 19/Feb/22
@Editor Rob: 6’5 on a good day May just mean he’s 6 4 too. Some people say it that way
Editor Rob
I think it's highly unlikely peak Robbins was nearer 6ft 4 than 6ft 5.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Feb/22
A 90s Tim Robbins I would think of as taller than Manganiello but his claim seems to be honest.
Seal said on 15/Feb/22
Rob, who do you think would be taller? Tim Robbins or Joe Manginello? Maybe Tim?
Editor Rob
I think both very close enough that you really need to measure to find out if one edged the other. Robbins height claims certainly are interesting, especially the old one about 6ft 5 on a good day.

To me it suggested he really did get measured close to that mark
chadv said on 25/Jan/22
Rob,

Can you please do a video on Tim to settle what height he is? I personally believe his peak height was a strong 6'5 some think more other think weak 6'5.

I think the only reason that anyone would think Tim is a weak 6'5 is because of the 6 4.5 comment but if he was rounding down because he is unusually tall for an actor.
Andrea said on 24/Jan/22
If you managed to retrieve the old article where he claims "6-feet, 5-inches on a good day" (which seem to be no longer available), that would be a great quote to add at the top, which goes along with his 6'4.5 or him being not quite 6'5 anyway...
Editor Rob
I'm not sure where he's supposed to have claimed it.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 22/Jan/22
i think young Tim and young Vince Vaughn would be identical, but right now, Tim maybe edge Vaughn, Vaughn losing height too quickly
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 22/Jan/22
@Terjky i think Stern is still the taller one but yeah i got your's and chadv's point, they should be really simillar, only like 1/2 inch difference on the same angle.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 22/Jan/22
@chadv i mean, Stern really did have a very high shoulder level and even if the ground favor Stern and his wife, it's definitely not by much because he would look much taller if so, i still gave him a very strong 6'5, and his wife maybe wear her highest heel like usual, making her 6'2 ish

@Canson he's not underlisted, his height would be on 6'5 1/4 -1/2 range, 196-197, Burnham also on this range but a little stronger
chadv said on 22/Jan/22
I don't understand how anyone could think that the photo with Howard Stern was at all on even level ground. I mean Stern's shoulders are at Robbins Eye line and the lady must be 6ft3.

The Cromwell photo looked a little more level (although closer to the camera) but the Stern phot is definitely not reliable.
Canson said on 18/Jan/22
@Ian: at times I can see the argument for up to 2 cm difference with Stern. Not sure if that means Stern is under listed or if Robbins was really only a 6’4 1/2” or 6’4 5/8” guy
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 17/Jan/22
@Canson fair enough
Terjky said on 15/Jan/22
The photo with Stern looka like it's not in even ground. I think Tim ia about heights with Stern
Canson said on 15/Jan/22
@Ian: yea for lunchtime that could be fair. I use afternoon so I agree with their listings as they are. I can’t see a peak Howard Stern below 6’5.25 even at his afternoon height unless extreme low territory
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 14/Jan/22
Canson said on 12/Jan/22
@Ian: I think he and Kobe would be similar. Kobe had different proportions

Kobe would likely had higher eye level and shoulder, but peak Tim would edge him overall, and i agree with 6'4 7/8 and 196,5-197 range for prime Tim Robbins and Howard Stern, Stern was only 2 inches shorter than young Magic Johnson
Canson said on 13/Jan/22
@Andrey and Ian: but he was shorter than Howard Stern. I’d have said as listed for both guys but those are their afternoon heights. If lunchtime 6’4 7/8 and maybe 6’5 3/8

Is it not time to have Tim at least 6'5 peak height?
Andrey200 said on 11/Jan/22
I think a strong 196 for peak Robbins is one of the few height hills I'm willing to die on lol, especially compared to, as someone pointed out a while ago here, other supposedly 196 actors who look hardly 194.
viper said on 10/Jan/22
Never understand Danimal thinking he was 6-7
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 10/Jan/22
@Canson maybe, but he's arguably the strongest 'weak 6'5' guy ever, even edging Kobe, easily in his prime
Andrey200 said on 9/Jan/22
@Canson That's a possibility, I suppose I can't see him at 195 peak because he consistently looked taller.

Here's an interesting observation made by one Russian site for celebrity heights.

Click Here

Here in shoes he is just about hitting 198, and has loose posture. Straightening his back, he could hit 199, so I can't see anything lower than 196.
Canson said on 9/Jan/22
@Ian and Andrey: he was probably a 195 cm guy like he’s listed if he didn’t measure as low as 6’4 1/2”. That may be what he was inferring
Andrey200 said on 8/Jan/22
@Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' I don't think he was measured at that, there's really no way he was ever that low. It's possible that he wasn't sure of his measurement and went for a safe number, but I don't believe for a second he was ever below 196.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 8/Jan/22
Easy 6'5 with Laurence Fisherbone, I'm so suprised he was measured just 6'4,5 peak, he can surely pass 195,5-196 look

Click Here
Andrey200 said on 2/Jan/22
@Harryp he can definitely look noticeably taller than 6'5", in The Shawshank Redemption for example he looks a consistent 6'6" imo. At this point he might've lost some, probably not a full inch, maybe half or so. I believe he was at least 6'5.5" at peak so about 6'5" flat now.
Harryp said on 1/Jan/22
Sure this guy is under 6"5? Thought he was like 6"7 or something lol
Andrey200 said on 24/Nov/21
Honestly does not look to me like he lost height. Could appear 0.5-1 cm shorter due to posture but seems to have held between 195.6-196.
berta said on 18/Nov/21
never looke under 6´5 at peak. Made morgan freeman look average. And clancy brown could look short besid him at 6´3. Legit 6´5 peak and today may be the listed height.

Vincent Caleb said on 10/Oct/21
@Canson yeah I can see that.

He is like Kobe, often looks taller than the 6’4.5 claim

Maybe they are both 6’5”, or Kobe a little under
Kobe could be 6’4.75” at worst
Canson said on 2/Oct/21
@Vincent: the more I see of him maybe he was 6’5 in his prime. I’d say 6’4.75 is also possible since it’s so close to the mark. He may have been your height
Vincent Caleb said on 1/Oct/21
He is the full 6’5” I don’t know why some of you take these claims actors make so seriously lol. We don’t pay attention to their claims for inflation do we? Why is it only when they say under what they look that we take at more face value?

Darius Campbell claimed 6’2”, but it doesn’t mean he is…

Just look at any movies of him when he is young, the dude looked towering. Easily close to 3 inches on prime Morgan freeman.
Canson said on 7/Aug/21
@Editor Rob: at times Klitschko does look a classic 6’5” but other times he looks 6’6”. He does wear lifts and in many pics you have the “6’9” Tyson Fury who is 6’7 range and the “6’6-6’7” Joshua who is 6’5,5-6’6 range next to him and it’s touch and go with the latter. I think the listing you have is fair and that he’s 6’5.25 at a low and 6’6 maybe 6’6.25 in his case with the longer torso when he wakes up. Joshua looks overall taller
Goldenbrown said on 7/Aug/21
Tall guy easily 6 ft 5+
Canson said on 15/Jul/21
@Editor Rob: likely what you have him listed but I think if anything his lift wearing makes him seem taller than guys like Joshua. I could easily see 6’6 out of bed 6’5.25 afternoon/evening
Canson said on 14/Jul/21
@Hyper and Rob: wouldn’t surprise me if Klitschko has a comfortable advantage. It could be up to an inch these days depending on what Robbins measureds. A peak Robbins would still likely be at least 1/2” shorter if not 2cm
Editor Rob
I think from all I've seen, Wladimir seems a more modest guy when he says 6ft 5, as I'd be surprised if I measured him and he came in that low.
Andrea said on 14/Jul/21
Yeah, the man himself even claimed 6'5 on a good day, so it makes little sense to argue the full 6'5, let alone over.
6'4.75 I still think is a good shout, but a solid 6'4.5 wouldn't really shock me. People do not realize how big that is...
Alex 6'0 said on 26/Jun/21
Claims 6'4.5 would definitely rule out 6'5. Most guys 6'4.5 would round to 6'5
Hyper said on 17/Jun/21
But in seriousness, in a stadiometer show down, who would you give the edge to, This guy or Wladimir Klitschko?
Editor Rob
I believe Wladimir has the better chance of being over 6ft 5 by more than a hair
Catherine roberts said on 15/Jun/21
Looks taller than 6,5 vince Vaughan to me.
Hyper said on 13/Jun/21
Rob

Why not give him the full 6’5”? He does look it, but I wouldn’t say he’s 6’6”. He is shorter than a current James Cromwell.
Editor Rob
6ft 5 and 4.5 today I have considered
Alex Vaz said on 7/Jun/21
Rob, some while back someone has putted the same photo but was not so clear, in that time I putted Robbins 5 cm less than Andre, but today, the difference doesn't seem more than 3 cm perhaps not even that...

the guy never looked a mm under 6´5 in movies like shawshank and other he could even look 197. but i feel 6´5 is good. he is underlisted-
Chadvindly said on 30/Apr/21
Rob, if Tim didn't say he was only 6'4.5 would you have had him anything under 6'5?. I thought he was like 6'6 or 6'7 in shawshank, even honest trailers points out his "NBA level height". Maybe he doesn't seem that tall in other films but I only know him from shawshank. Can't see him under 6'5 at all.
Editor Rob
for a period at the beginning I did give him 6ft 5. I think he could have lost a fraction (1/4 inch) by now.
FanzWrestler said on 21/Apr/21
A big dude! Not someone you'd expect to be that tall. I always thought he was in the 5'10-6'0 range but never 6'5!! He made Morgan Freeman look small in Shawshank.

Tim gets the full 6'5. Where as someone like an Armie Hammer is definitely 6'4 but claims a 6'5 shoe height.
Vincent Caleb said on 16/Apr/21
@Canson:
I think his comment got deleted somehow cause I can’t see it...
Yao is 7-8 wasn’t a a bad guy either, I made the comparison because they both used the worst cherry picked photos for evidence. There is like a single time where Robbins has looked 6’4” or under and that is what he is basing all of his evidence off of. If anything Yao is 7-8 was unintentionally the funniest poster here. Dude was quite the character.
Canson said on 14/Apr/21
@Vincent: while I don’t agree with Bobby on this one but he is actually a good poster and likeable guy. He’s not even in the same zip code as Yao is 7-8. Many of Bobby’s other estimates are good ones
Vincent Caleb said on 13/Apr/21
@ bobbyh3342:
You are a horrible guesser if you think he is 6’3”. That is one of the worst guesses on this page. Honestly anything under 6’4.5” is too low for peak, and he is still 6’5” peak to me. The fact that you are using the Howard Stern picture as evidence shows how bad of a guesser you are. You kind of remind me of a guy named Yao is 7-8 that used to post here.
recapa said on 24/Mar/21
@Vincent, yeah he looks around that i still think that he is a good 6ft4 guy as rob said.193-193.5cm for jack and 195-195.5cm for tim.
Vincent Caleb said on 22/Mar/21
@recapa:
I think his son is about minimum 2 cm lower than him currently.

@Dazt: the only thing probably stopping Rob is him having claimed 6’4.5” before

Editor Rob
he might not be quite as tall as Tim, though can look a good 6ft 4 at least
Dazt said on 20/Mar/21
Rob, why not give Tim the full 6'5?
Editor Rob
There is the argument for 6f 5 and he's lost a fraction today and sits under it
Kreid said on 10/Mar/21
Can't see this guy being anything under 6'5 honestly looks more at times.
Vincent Caleb said on 8/Mar/21
I have him at 6’4.75” absolute minimum and 6’5.25” maximum. I really do think 6’5” is the right call, but it’s best to put it in a range. He is physically a taller guy than Vaughn to me.
cmillz said on 4/Mar/21
Really doubt there would be any noticeable difference peak Robbins and peak Cleese.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/21
Cleese I'd probably give the edge. Strong 196cm for him while Tim could have been 195.6cm or bang on 6ft5
Canson said on 3/Mar/21
@Recapa: yea similar to Vincent Caleb at least for Kobe but I’m beginning to think Robbins may have been that in his prime too and not 6’4.5
recapa said on 1/Mar/21
in my opinion he is very similar to kobe in height .both are 195cm at low and wakes up around 6ft5.5.

Rapha said on 28/Feb/21
Hi Rob

Who do you think was taller, peak out of bed height: Tim Robbins or John Cleese?
Editor Rob
At the moment I give Cleese an edge, but I could see the chance they are both really close in height in their 30's.
MaskDeMasque said on 26/Feb/21
Very big guy. I would have said 6'5 flat but 6'4.75 is very believable. He's a good actor and should have been in more films.
viper said on 25/Feb/21
I wanna say the 6-4.5 is an extreme low, and even that's a bit hard to believe.

Think he's 6-4.75 at worst
berta said on 25/Feb/21
this guy have never looked under 6´5 ever. he can often pull of 1/4 over it. i believe in the full 6´5
Canson said on 25/Feb/21
@Vincent: you’re right. He can with Lawrence in that shot. Maybe the 6’4.75 was a good shout. If that’s the case maybe 1/2 inch with stern
Darrenreed said on 22/Feb/21
Sorry but random photos where you can't see the ground etc are not proof that someone is taller or not. I've seen a lot of Robbins films and honestly could believe 6'6+. He towered Freeman and made Sean Penn seem tiny.
Vincent Caleb said on 19/Feb/21
The Cromwell picture isn’t a poor picture though, although Cromwell is slightly closer to the camera. Not sure if Stern has lost any height from his peak.
slim 6'1 said on 18/Feb/21
I’d have no problem giving him the full 6’5”
Vincent Caleb said on 18/Feb/21
@Hyper:
I have to disagree. Vaughn did not hold his own with his own. I tend to agree with a lot of your estimates, but I have to say that Vince Vaughn pic with Lebron James is not a picture we should be using to judge height.

@Canson:
I don’t see any evidence pointing towards a 2 cm difference between Robbins and Stern. Really just not a great picture. With Martin Lawrence he looked 6’5” as well. Look at this funny clip from their movie together:
Click Here
At around the 12-17 second mark you can see there is quite a large difference between the two. Certainly no less than 10 inches. Tim also looked an easy 6’5” with Sean Penn. I am going to say worst case is 6’4.75”, but I really do struggle to see him at that. He really does pass for much over 6’5” sometimes. Because of that, I am going to stick to 6’5” for now.
Canson said on 17/Feb/21
@Vinderter and CMillz: it’s not the best (the pic with Stern and Robbins) but Stern is still taller. Of course it’s not 1.5”‘like one person said here. It’s probably around 2cm difference at most. Robbins also didn’t quite look 6’5 with Martin Lawrence either. But he doesn’t look far off it. Maybe 6’4.5” worst case but it could be argued he’s the listed height here being there’s only 1/4” difference between 6’5 and 6’4.75”
vinderter said on 16/Feb/21
The Stern photo is definitely not on even ground.
cmillz said on 16/Feb/21
The pic with Stern is garbage.

With Cromwell, while a much better pic, I can tell Robbins is at a bit of a disadvantage there.
Hyper said on 16/Feb/21
I can see how he looks 6'5" without a doubt. However, I wouldn't guess him at 6'6".
Canson said on 15/Feb/21
@Cmillz: in his prime Vaughn was taller than Goldblum. He’s lost height today. I’m not sure Robbins would be taller than him. They look pretty similar and Robbins has claimed 6’4.5”. Next to Stern, Robbins surely wasn’t 6’5”. If anything, I see considering camera etc is 3/4” or 2cm. If we have Stern at 6’5.25 then the weak 6’5 fits 6’4.5” or so
Hyper said on 15/Feb/21
Vaughn held his own against Lebron James than Kobe and Cam Newton did, at times.

Click Here

Click Here

And Vaughn is standing behind Lebron and Tom Brady, yet Vaughn is taller than Brady.

@Vincent Caleb

Cromwell was slouching a bit with Robbins though. It’s not like they’re that far part or the camera zoomed in someone and made the other look a lot smaller. They standing together in line though.
cmillz said on 15/Feb/21
Lol, Vaughn looked the same height as Goldblum and Strahan, and you’re telling me he gives off a more legit 6’5 impression than Robbins? Okay...
Canson said on 14/Feb/21
@Vincent: I tend to agree with 6’4.5-.75 peak (weak 6’5”)
Vincent Caleb said on 13/Feb/21
Vaughn was barely taller than Goldblum. At most a centimeter. He also struggles with over 6’4” recently with Brett Favre. When he met affleck, he also didn’t give near a 6’5” impression. I’m not saying it’s impossible he is 6’5”, but I’m inclined to believe he was 6’4.75” at most. I just haven’t seen Robbins look under 6’5” as much, especially at his peak. 6’4.75” is the absolute least I would say for Robbins, and if he hadn’t claimed 6’4.5”, under 6’5” wouldn’t have crossed my mind.
Canson said on 12/Feb/21
@Cmillz: maybe a bit over 3”. He could look 6’5.5 possibly or 6’5” in the oic but I doubt over. The “near” can mean over or under imho. My guess is that he’s around his listed height though. Now 6’5 is possible but at a stretch. I would’ve had Vaughn as a legit 6’5” before Robbins. Vaughn looks it more imho
Vincent Caleb said on 12/Feb/21
@Hyper:
But both of them are easily over 6’5”. I want to see him get beat out by a 6’5” flat guy. I just do not believe 6’4.5”. The pictures where Cromwell edged him out, Robbins was also further from the camera. The Howard Stern Picture is also not the best for judging height at all.
Hyper said on 10/Feb/21
Vincent Caleb

People can look taller at times. For me, it’s more how consistent they do so. Dan Snow and Bo Burnham do it, quite a lot.

Tim Robbins does but he’s been beat out by Howard Stern and even a old James Cromwell.
Vincent Caleb said on 9/Feb/21
@Hyper:
Everyone can pull of looking taller than they are at times I guess. Dan looks around 6’5.75” there.
Hyper said on 8/Feb/21
Maybe 3.5 difference between Tim and John. The latter’s high eye level made it look like there isn’t much between them.

Pretty close to it.
cmillz said on 5/Feb/21
You don’t see a 4 inch difference there?
Vincent Caleb said on 5/Feb/21
That is one of the few times Robbins can pull off well over 6’5”. While I don’t rule out a fraction under, right there he doesn’t look “near 6’5”. I have to disagree with Canson and James. John Cusack is 6’2” and Robbins legitimately looks a solid 3.5 inches taller there. Cusack is an even more solid 6’2” than Reynolds. I’m not saying Robbins is 6’5.5”, but he does look it in the clip.
Canson said on 4/Feb/21

Assuming Cusack actually is 6’2, Robbins looks an easy 6’6 there to me.

Very possible that Cusack is more 6’1 range, however.
Canson said on 2/Feb/21
@Cmillz: he doesn’t looo as tall as 6’6 there. Maybe 6’5” but really he could look the same as he did with Martin Lawrence in Nothing to Lose. He had good posture back then not now.

@Vincent
Depends on the region of LA though. West LA is overpriced and the people seem pretentious (not all of course), the downtown area has a major homelessness issue, so crime is obviously gonna be high, and East LA have a lot of ghetto and poor areas, although the people are friendlier. I live in the southern part of LA county, sandwiched between South Central and the Gateway cities, and it's decent.

@Arch Stanton:
I lived in LA my entire life, except for the past 9 or so months due to work, and while I don’t consider it a horrible place to live I would much prefer living in a nicer quieter place. Homelessness has been a growing issue here sadly, but there is still hope. It also seems many of the college kids there don’t seem to care to much about COVID restrictions, but I guess that is a bit of a generalization. I think Philadelphia is a much nicer place to live IMO, since I stayed there a couple years.

I also love the Shawshank Redemption Arch! When I first saw it my jaw fell to the floor and stayed there for the entire last hour! Tim looked even taller than 6’5” there. Whether he is a fraction under is very debatable however since he did claim it, but from pictures I would have never guessed it.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Dec/20
Agreed Vincent. I always cringe when I see some of the Oscar/Golden Globe speeches. I'm not interested in hearing their views on politics! It's a film ceremony!

I must admit my perception of California/Hollywood is the worst it's ever been right now. It's terribly overcrowded with homeless people on the sidewalks everywhere, I absolutely loved California when I visited back in the late 90s and would have loved to have lived there, particularly in the Carmel/Monterey area Eastwood lives in, but when you keep hearing stories of big fires and tramps and COVID spreading and boarded up shops, it tarnishes your view of it. There's currently an exodus out of CA, some going to Texas like Rogan and Musk. LA right now seems like a crazy place to be, with an incompetent governor.

I haven't been watching many films of late but I'll have to see Shawshank Redemption again soon, everytime I watch it as it unfolds I keep saying to myself, "this has to be close to the best film of all time!" Tim didn't look under 6'5 in that..
Andrea said on 25/Dec/20
Unless he purposefully downplayed his height by half an inch (which makes little sense), the full 6'5 is unlikely. My guess still is that he may have measured somewhere between 6'4.5 and 6'5 and simply decided to round down to 6'4.5 rather than up to 6'5... 6'4.75 is a good enough listing for him.
Vincent Caleb said on 25/Dec/20
Im thinking he could be 194 com today. Still holds up well next to Freeman in recent pictures.
Canson said on 25/Dec/20
@Vincent: Robbins and Kobe may have been your height in their primes. If anything VV would’ve been a hair taller than them imho
Hyper said on 24/Dec/20
6’5” flat would be better but not over it. He’s shorter than Howard Stern and a current James Cromwell, who’s under 6’6” nowadays.
Vincent Caleb said on 20/Dec/20
@Arch Stanton:
Tbh, who cares what some celebrities political opinions are anyways? It’s not like because they are an actor that makes whatever they say important. Their politics mean as much to me as my plumber’s political views. It’s fine for everybody to have an opinion, but pretending to be someone else on camera doesn’t make your opinion more valuable than anyone else’s. Rappaport is a great example of this.

Tim could be the full 6’5” peak, or at worst Kobe’s height of 6’4.8”. Still have him at 6’5”.
Canson said on 19/Dec/20
@Rampage: I’m thinking maybe the listing for his peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/20
Still looks over 6ft4 today. 6ft5 peak is probably the safest bet


Rappaport is just obnoxious
Arch Stanton said on 9/Dec/20
Tim's pretty normal for Hollywood nowadays, Michael Rappaport is more far left, scary guy.
In the early 90s in particular I thought Robbins could often pass for 6'5 and change, always loomed above everybody in his films. In the above photo he looks a good 6'6 in those boots.
Vincent Caleb said on 7/Dec/20
@cmillz:
Yeah, I think legit 6’5” peak is fair. To be honest, he looked 3 inches taller than a peak Morgan Freeman. Next to Sean Penn I never even would have considered less than 6’5”. He could look 4 inches taller than Bob Gunton as well.
cmillz said on 6/Dec/20
Actually, I’m going with a bit over 6’5 peak tbh. He simply looks too tall in every movie he’s ever been in to be sub 6’5 peak, let alone 6’4.5

Ok, my bad, merely thought you were trying to put down his talent a bit. Political disagreements are going to happen, although I could have sworn Tim Robbins was pretty far down the middle and was a centrist dude. Maybe I’m wrong.

Not a big fan of Robbins' political views(or his ex-girlfriend Susan Sarandon either) but he is a very tall guy. Okay actor. Wouldn't rule out a strong 6'6 either but a strong 6'5" solidly.

What does his political views have to do with his height or acting skills? He is not 6’6”, possibly 6’5” or 195 cm at worst. He is a great actor, an Oscar winner, and he is in one of the highest rated movies of all time. His talent and his height should not be determined by his political views, nor does this have to do with anything mentioned on this page.
Alex V. 5'10'' said on 24/Nov/20

Strange photo indeed.
Vincent Caleb said on 23/Nov/20
@Hyper: Kind of a weird picture though. He could be a weak 6’5” there. When he was young and slender with decent posture, he could look no less than 6’5”. Also, I’m not too sure about the footwear in that shot. Camera angle is strange as well. Sterns wife doesn’t look nearly as short as she should in that photo.
Average Heighted Male said on 23/Nov/20
Just watched 'High Fidelity'(2000), and I can honestly say Tim Robbins had about 4 inches over John Cusack easily in their scene together. Usually, Cusack is listed as 6ft2, however, he looked only 6'-6'1" next to Robbins. Most 6'2 guys don't look small next to 6ft5ers. Cusack was dwarfed.

I just cannot see 6’4.5” peak. It really does look too low. TBH he looks 6’5”. I don’t know, maybe he could measure 6’4.75”, but in almost everything I have seen him in he looked a legit 6’5”. Some pictures he just dwarfed Sean Penn. He could make him look 5’7” at times.

Hey Canson...

The movie is full of stars. Jeff Goldblum is also in there, and in one scene, (they are not together), we can see clear against another actors, that Robbins is taller, like 2cm. During the movie he is almost all the the time, wearing flat shoes.

Tim was in a film called IQ with Stephen Fry and looked a good inch taller than him. About the same difference Cleese had with Fry. Whatever Cleese height is? Tim is the same.

@Tall Sam: I have to wonder if Cleese was a sloucher. He appeared to in some pics
Tall Sam said on 3/Nov/20
Its funny with Cleese, being seen so often besides the also very tall Graham Chapman he looked tall but not exceptionally so. Then you seem him near Kevin Kline and even John Lithgow and Stephen Fry and realize he's even taller than anticipated. Cleese would've definitely had some height at peak IMO on the likes of Vaughn, Robbins and Christopher Lee.
Vincent Caleb said on 1/Nov/20
@Canson: I agree, Cleese has the edge

@AlexV: I think Cleese was taller at his peak. A peak Cleese would’ve been 6’5”
Vincent Caleb said on 31/Oct/20
@Tall Sam: When he gets on a stadiometer Robbins could surprise me and measure 6-4.75. I think both are valid guesses. I Thought 6-4.5 is too low, but nothing should be ruled out.

@Alex V: I think he was either saying he’s 6’4.5 or somewhere around it. Maybe a bit over or under. But I think he was telling the truth there

Yeah Canson, those statements of his own, shows that his height is around 195cm. I do think that is taller than guys like Stephen Fry, Jeff Goldblum or Vince Vaughn, just 1cm more.
Same height as John Cleese imo.

If you think Vince Vaughn is a full 6-5 then watch last world or look at him with Strahan. I also find it unlikely he has lost 3/4 of an inch already At barely 50, he looks 194 at best current and 195 prime. Robbins just gave of a taller impression physically. He is similar to Kobe in the fact that he claims 6-4.5, yet he can easily look 6-5. I think Kobe’s eye level was a big help with that though. Robbins doesn’t have a high eye level, so he might have edged Kobe. 6-4.75 for Bryant and 6-5 for Robbins.

I would tend to agree that Vaughn being listed as taller than Robbins doesn't seem right. I certainly wouldn't rule out a solid 6'5" for Robbins. You could argue he looked right around an inch shorter than 6'6" James Cromwell but not sure if Cromwell had lost anything when they were photographed together.
Canson said on 30/Oct/20
@Vincent: I think strong 6’5 out of bed but very strong 6’5 (6’5.25-.5) and weak 6’5 at a low 6’4.5-.75 for him
Vincent Caleb said on 29/Oct/20
@Editor Rob: Do you think Robbins was the full 6-5 when he was younger? IMHO the only reason 6-4.75 is popular for him is his claim. Darius Campbell also claimed to be 6-2 when he often looks 194 rather than 188cm. Gary Cooper claimed to be 6-2 despite being 6-3. Kevin Durant claimed 6-7 one time(he might have been joking, but still). I think actors claims should be taken with a grain of salt, whether it is lower or higher than what they look. Why does it mean they are being honest if it is lower than what they usually look? It is possible he was not measured correctly also, since I personally have been measured incorrectly as an inch higher than I am. There are so many possible variables that only pictures and measurements from professional sports should be taken with great consideration. Finally, why does Tim Robbins claim mean any more than the Rock’s claim? This listing isn’t a bad listing by any means, but I am interested to know what you think about all of that.
Editor Rob
4.75 is probably the lowest I'd go, so 6ft 5 is arguable.
Vincent Caleb said on 29/Oct/20
@Tall Sam:
Vince Vaughn at 6-4.75 sounds good, but I still think Robbins next to D’Onofrio is pretty dang close to 6-5. In the entirety of Shawshank he looked a comfortable 6-5. In this pic next to 6-1.5 listed, but 6-1 flat imo Bob Gunton he can easily pass for over 6-5 Click Here.
Also in this scene at around 1:56 he looks 2 inches taller than solid 6-3 Clancy brown Click Here
Lastly, with Sean penn he is an easy 6-5
Click Here
I think CMills is right on this one, but I respect your opinion as well as Canson’s. Probably a weak 6-6 out of bed and drops 3/4 of an inch to 6-5 afternoon.
Tall Sam said on 29/Oct/20
Its true Vaughn looked scarcely taller than Goldblum in The Lost World, pretty close to the same height really. However, in premiere shots Vaughn does look a little taller relative to Goldblum than in the film. Footwear could be making the difference.
Click Here
Also, in The Player, Tim Robbins faces off against Vincent D'Onofrio at his 6'3.5" listed peak. When Vincent is standing better in part of the scene (he also leans forward a bit), the difference looks not much over an inch.
Canson said on 28/Oct/20
@Vincent: yea 195 is the most I can see for Robbins in his prime
Vincent Caleb said on 28/Oct/20
@Tall Sam:
Vince Vaughn could barely look a centimeter taller than Goldblum at times. His peak is probably 195 cm. On the other hand, Tim Robbins could look 3 inches over a strong 6-2 Morgan Freeman. His proportions may be confusing me, but the average vote also agrees with me. Only true evidence of a sub 6-5 Robbins is his claim, which could have been a faulty measurement. My guess is full 6-5 for Robbins.
Tall Sam said on 26/Oct/20
@Canson, yes I think you're right. I think at peak he'd be hard to sort out from Vince Vaughn as well.
Vincent Caleb said on 25/Oct/20
I think his peak was taller than Vince Vaughn. 6’5” flat
Canson said on 24/Oct/20
@Alex V: I think he was either saying he’s 6’4.5 or somewhere around it. Maybe a bit over or under. But I think he was telling the truth there
Canson said on 24/Oct/20
@Tall Sam: I could see him being your height in his prime 6’5.5 out of bed and 6’4.75 in the afternoon or 1/4” less than you at 6’5.25/6’4.5
Tall Sam said on 21/Oct/20
I do think the current 6'4.75" listing is fairly legit for Robbins but people can seem to view as looking (if not actually measuring) nearly as much as 6'6" which is way too much even for his peak morning height. I think his build, both slender and slightly boxy, can give a super lanky impression.
Alex V. 5'10'' said on 21/Oct/20
"Six foot four and a half" and "6'5'' on a good day", came from Tim's own mouth; so, regular 195cm, 194cm at worst and 196cm AT THE MOST.
Almost 180cm guy said on 20/Oct/20
I think we can compare Robbins' peak height with Del Toro's peak height. Here are their joint photos from 2004: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
The difference between them in these photos looked likely around 3 inches but in some photos only like 2.5 inches. Rob, what is more likely 6ft 2.25 for Del Toro's peak hieght or full 6ft 5 for peak height of Robbins?
Editor Rob
A full 6ft5 for Robbins isn't entirely hard to believe, the majority do give him that mark when guessing...
recapa said on 19/Oct/20
195cm exactl1y or slightly under it
Canson said on 19/Oct/20
@Tall Sam: I think in his prime he could’ve been what he claimed. 6’4.5”. Best case maybe he was this listing or 1/8” less than this at his low during the day. I would give Vaughn the more I see 195-195.5. I think Vaughn would end up your height
viper said on 18/Oct/20
Vaughn has never looked as physically tall as Robbins in movies imo
Tall Sam said on 18/Oct/20
If you see him near Howard Stern, his being a weak 6'5" rather than anything over it is likely. You could argue that Robbins is sometimes more slouched and may have even lost more height (despite being 4 years younger), but Stern looked 0.5-0.75 taller than Robbins.
Canson said on 18/Oct/20
@Cmillz: I doubt either guy was 196 in their prime but if anything I would give Robbins 195 and Vaughn 196. I would go with the following:

Vaughn 195-195.5 tops
Robbins 194-195 range
cmillz said on 16/Oct/20
honestly he could pass for 6’6 at times, even in Shawshank he could look 3.5 inches taller than Freeman, and even near 5 inches taller than Gunton. Can’t recall Vince ever giving off such a towering impression, especially when he barely looked taller than Goldblum in The Lost World, and surprisingly looked just about the same height as Strahan.

I’d say Vaughn was 195cm at peak, while Robbins was 196cm.
James B 172c, said on 16/Oct/20
Yes Canson I think with goldblum Vince didn’t look over 6’4.75
Canson said on 15/Oct/20
@Hyper: same here. He can pass for 6’5” just like Vaughn did. If anything Vaughn could’ve had the better chance at full 6’5” than him.
Hyper said on 14/Oct/20
@cmillz

I can see a 6’5” flat listing, at times. However, I wouldn’t argue a solid 6’6” like Moe claims.
Canson said on 14/Oct/20
@Hyper: I could say 6’4.5 and 6’4.75 or 6’4 5/8 and 6’4 3/4 for Robbins and Vaughn respectively. Vaughn at 6’5 wouldn’t surprise me in his prime but I would give him 6’4.75 more than likely. He would be 6’5.5 out of bed in that case. Robbins I would say was maybe within 1/4”
cmillz said on 13/Oct/20
Robbins may have claimed 6’4.5” before, but it doesn’t mean he measured ever that low. Bo Burnham has claimed 6’5 flat before, despite the fact that he’s very likely 6’5.5”
cmillz said on 13/Oct/20
Nah, Robbins had the edge over Vaughn.
Hyper said on 13/Oct/20
@Canson

Actually, maybe Vaughn would have an edge over Robbins. He looked significantly taller than Will Ferrell. He held up well with Kane.

I am very well fooled by Tim's lankiness.
Canson said on 12/Oct/20
I would’ve believed Vaughn to be taller if anything. Robbins claimed 6’4.5 before. Vaughn has always claimed 6’5”. Likely it’s less than 1/4” In reality if Both are rounding up or down to an extent
Tall Sam said on 10/Oct/20
He's always been a good point of reference for me how I'd look with his co-stars and others as we are similarly built and the same height.
Hyper said on 10/Oct/20
I would give him the edge over Vince Vaughn. I can see how he can look 6’5”.

However, I wouldn’t say he’s 6’6”. He’s shorter than an Old James Cromwell and Bo looked a bit taller than an Old James Cromwell.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/20
@Canson
I agree, you'd probably needed to measure them down to the millimeter to see who was taller.
Canson said on 8/Oct/20
Tim Robbins has claimed 6’4.5 so I doubt he was ever a full 6’5” afternoon height. He could’ve been a weak 6’5 guy 6’4.5-.75 range who rounded down to 4.5” or perhaps rounded 3/4” down but not 6’5”. He and Vaughn would’ve been very close in height. Hard to tell who would edge the other out
Tomc said on 6/Oct/20
Rob, did Tim wear lifts in the Shawshank or camera angles? Maybe it was to make him seem above everyone in the place? At times he looks huge beside other tall actors.
Editor Rob
I can agree he didn't look seem less than 6ft 5 in that film.
berta said on 5/Oct/20
i think tim was more legit 6´5 than vincea vaughn
Hyper said on 18/Sep/20
@cmillz

It's not like they're far away from each other. They're standing close together, without a major zooming in. It's not exactly likely, but it also looks like Cromwell is tilting his head.

If it was something like this, I can understand the 'major camera advantage.' -- Click Here

cmillz said on 16/Sep/20
So you’re denying the fact that Cromwell has clear camera advantage over Robbins, which is exaggerating the difference between them. You can’t really judge the height difference between them with just that one photo. Too many variables that can make one person look taller/shorter than they really are.
Hyper said on 16/Sep/20
@cmillz

Not really. I wouldn't do a three person, comparison since Tim Robbins and James Cromwell have met before.

Click Here

I only do comparison if they didn't meet. However, they met and an old Cromwell is clearly taller.
Alex V. (5ft10) said on 13/Sep/20
Plus, their shoulders seem to be at the same level...
cmillz said on 13/Sep/20
It’s funny though, in some pictures, Robbins looks taller standing next to Morgan Freeman than Cromwell does.
cmillz said on 12/Sep/20
@Dream
Cromwell is closer to the camera and the angle is favoring him. He probably still edged out Robbins at the time though, but not as much as what the picture is showing.
Dream said on 9/Sep/20
@cmillz

They’re close to each other. The top of their heads definitely look more than one inch.
cmillz said on 7/Sep/20
Cromwell definitely has camera advantage over Robbins though, if this is what you’re referring to.

Click Here

Like with stern, that one picture won’t show the true height difference between them.
viper said on 6/Sep/20
Under 6-5 would have never entered my mind had he never given out the 6-4.5 quote.
Dream said on 5/Sep/20
@Chad136

Tim is definitely shorter than an old and bald James Cromwell, who is in the 6’5”-6’6” range today.

And an old James Cromwell looked visibly shorter than Bo Burnham, with Nicholas Braun. Bo also claimed to be 6’5”’and 6’6” on multiple occasions.
Chad136 said on 4/Sep/20
Tim is easily over 6'5 maybe even 6'6?
Hard to take this site seriously with these inaccuracies.
Editor Rob
Tim himself said 6ft 4.5 😅 But it's true you shouldn't take height too seriously!
James B 172cm said on 1/Sep/20
Watched Shawshank Redemption tonight and I can totally believe the full 6ft5
cmillz said on 25/Aug/20
I thought he looked a bit taller in the 80s/90s than he does now. I could believe that he’s a weak 6’5 today, but certainly hard to imagine he was under 6’5 in his prime.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Aug/20
I’m surprised Vince got that since he’s 12 years younger than Tim!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Aug/20
Rob, could Tim maybe get 6ft4½ today and 6ft5 peak?


Looking at him recently he doesn’t really look much different from 20-30 years ago. Usually the tallest in most photos. Maybe he hasn’t lost really anything
Editor Rob
Those figures are arguable, a bit like Vince Vaughn maybe
Chadty said on 8/Aug/20
The picture with Stern is obviously not on even ground, cause Stern would be like 6'8, I think stern and Robbins on even ground would be exactly the same. Tim 6'5 to 6'5.5
Canson said on 7/Aug/20
@Junior: he was slightly shorter than Stern so I’m not seeing the full 6’5”. Rob May have him correct but something like 6’4 5/8 may also fit him if not 6’4.5”
daveyg said on 6/Aug/20
My cousin is a legit 6"3 at least,he said he met Tim about 10 years ago and said he Tim was easy a few inches taller.
