Tomy Lee Jones 183'7 cm in peak barefoot
Nowadays 181 cm

Will Smith 186'8cm barely in peak

Strong 6'0 peak, now a weak 6'0
Canson said on 26/Jun/17
Putting him at Harrison Ford's height like Richard Spain said makes him a hair over 6'0" peak. Maybe he had lost height when he did the MIB movies He wasn't but maybe an inch shorter than Will
S.J.H said on 24/Jun/17
I don't see will smith a full 2' taller. Only when smith have footwear advantage. I see solid 1.5' pushing 1.75' between them and the odd is T.L.J 5'11.25 and smith 6'1
Ian C said on 27/May/17
"And a quarter inch?" I'll bet he added that to let us know that his six foot claim was not a round-off.

Mount Everest was surveyed at 29,000 feet exactly, so the surveyors reported the official height as 29001 feet, to dispel the notion that they had rounded off the true height, or had been two lazy to measure it to more than two significant digits.
Richardspain said on 26/Apr/17
He was exactly as Harrison Ford. No more no less

@rampage I'd have picked 184 for Tommy Lee and 186cms for Will Smith in mib1

183-184 peak.
181-182 now.
and agree with berta. In the fugitive, he looked a little bit taller than harrison ford. So yeah, he was a solid 6 at peak and now a solid 5'11.
Johnny said on 24/Mar/17
Definitely six foot peak. Looked 3 inches taller than Joe Pantoliano in The Fugitive.
Adijos said on 21/Mar/17
Peak: 6'0.75" (185 cm)
Now: 5'11.75" (182 cm)
berta said on 10/Feb/17
well in the fugitive i think we all can agre that he was same height ore 1/4 taller than harrison ford. dont think it was 1/2 inch but he was little taller. Ford was about 50 years at the time. lets say he already lost half inch back then and was 6 foot. then jones was somewhere in this listed range. max what he ever could have been was 6 foot half inch and shortes possible was 6 foot flat if he was not taller than ford. but he looked taller. i think the listing is fair. but my personal belief is that he was somewhere in beetwen 6 foot 1/4 and 6 1/2.
James said on 3/Feb/17
He's 5'11".

Why does he look short in every movie 5 9 maybe tommy lee jones
Sonny Black said on 27/Jan/17
Looked a solid 6'0ft next to Smith in the first MIB but noticeably shorter by the time the 3rd one came out, which I just watched last night and is why I'm here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/16
Rob, also in Natural Born Killers...
Richard Chamberlain said on 3/Nov/16
A flat 6' peak, he had an inch on Tom Sizemore who was 5'11" give or take so Jones was a solid 6'
Dejavu said on 9/Oct/16
He could appear 6'1 next to Tom Hanks.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Sep/16
Looked a strong 6ft in the 1st MIB but barely 5ft11 by the last one.

Rob, could he be that low today?
James said on 13/Sep/16
You only have to watch the first Men in Black film. Compared to Will Smith, Jones looks no less than 6 ft. And now he has lost some height it's very obvious. Good listing.

There a movie with Matt Dillon and the tramp Diane Lane. It's from 1985 or 1986. But in various scenes he's almost 3 inches taller than Matt Dillon who is about 5'10"...This ends all discussions about TLJ height...
Judd ISR said on 31/Jul/15
I agree, Sean73...
IMO in 1997 TLJ was still a flat 6'0" guy (is what he did look at times next to a 6'1.25-1.5" Will Smith). Considering he was at the beginning of 50s in the last years of 1990s, there's a good chance he has still lost just a small amount from his peak height so 6'0.25" as peak is legitimate!
Today 5'11.5" is fair because a shrinkage of 2 cms at almost 70 years old is normal!
Sean73 said on 10/Jul/15
I'm watching U.S. Marshals and he seems to be a full 4 inches taller than Robert Downey jr. I always thought RDJ was short but not that short. I would give TMJ a flat six foot in 1998, and RDJ 5'8". RDJ must be wearing 2" lifts these days.
Judd said on 26/May/15
Arch Stanton says on 26/May/15
184 is definitely genuine peak, he could pass for 6 ft 1 in the 70s.

Actually i don't think he was a "genuine" or "strong" 184 cms.
I usually consider a genuine or strong 184 cms guy someone like Bradley Cooper, who gets up usually at 186 cms and close the day at 184 cms (in the range 183,8-184,2 cms).
I think TLJ was more 183,5 cms in the afternoon. He maybe got up at 6'1 and then he closed the day at 6'0.2-0.25" which Made him a "very strong" 6' or (it's much better) a honest 6'0.25" guy.
I think he (very very) rarely went under 183 cms, i guess he was averagely 183,3-183,7 cms in the late afternoon.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
184 is definitely genuine peak, he could pass for 6 ft 1 in the 70s.
Judd said on 25/May/15
I think that there were 3 solids cms between TLJ and WS. If tommy was 182 cms as a lots of people there say, then will can't be taller than a flat 6'1" and actually i don't think so.
At Times (1997) TLJ was at least 6' with a 6'1.25-1.5" will smith.
Judd said on 8/May/15
In the first MIB in a lot of scenes he did look max 1-1.25" shorter than Will Smith, with similar shoes and posture...I think at times he was 6'0-0.25" of course he has lost something but he does look 4 weak inches taller than bob DeNiro who I suppose is in the 172 cms range.
As I said before, the listing is the fairest!
sizeing sizemore said on 23/Mar/15
1 inch taller than Tom siezemore a known 5'11 guy....
grizz said on 22/Mar/15
@Rob, my mistake, they look alike to me. Coincidentally, they are the same height, so the argument is still valid :D
184.3cm said on 17/Mar/15
Nick Nolte and Gary Busey never thought they were alike but seems many do just like my father. Had to show him the damn credits just to prove it was Gary Busey.
To be honest in Under Siege i didnt think he looked a 6 footer next to Seagal more 5'11 range.

I am 187 188 with foot and 185 186 without footwear and i meet tommy lee jones 2 years ago, i think that he is 180 not more

I had no idea he was strong 6footer at his prime! In "Under Siege" he seemed slightly shorter than Nick Nolte, but he always held a goofy posture throughout the film.
[Editor Rob: you mean Gary Busey?]
Judd said on 21/Jan/15
In conclusion, I think TLJ had at first the same size as Alex: strong 183 cms, so his daily height was variable between 183,5 cms and 183 cms, but with a "stop loss point" at 6'0"...
I think today he has lost a good half inche or a bit more, so likely he's in the 5'11.5" range...
Good estimate, rob! XD
Arch Stanton said on 30/Dec/14
One of my favourite roles of his is actually in Double Jeopardy with Ashley Judd.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Dec/14
Rob can you add a photo? Preferably not with his dodgy dyed hair in Coal Miner's Daughter LOL! He actually had a minor role in Love Story! Good selection Sam, thanks. Really looks easily a foot taller than Sissy Spacek in Coal Miner's Daughter. In one scene he is hunched over and folded in half and Sissy on higher ground to kiss her.
Mike said on 21/Dec/14
You might wanna change it to the Men in Black Trilogy Rob?
Sam said on 16/Dec/14
Re-upping my suggestions for the top of the page, Rob: Rolling Thunder, Coal Miner's Daughter, Lonesome Dove, Lincoln, Under Siege, JFK and In the Valley of Elah +the already listed Men in Black, The Fugitive & No Country for Old Men, his three best and best-known films.
Dmeyer said on 10/Dec/14
Claiming 183.5 and 184cm means he measured 6'0.25 at night , since he can look almost 6ft in old days he was probably that

Sam said on 31/Jul/14
I think this current height is a good listing. Tommy has a reputation for sometimes being as mean as a rattlesnake but he's a good actor who brings gravitas to his role...good actor that is except for in Batman Forever.

In his credits, Rob, could you add Rolling Thunder, Coal Miner's Daughter, Lonesome Dove, Lincoln, Under Siege (the best performance anyone ever gave in a Steven Seagal movie), JFK and In the Valley of Elah, might need to drop the middling U.S. Marshals.
Jesse Stone said on 8/Jul/14
For Jones I would definitely give him a 6 feet peak!
May have lost a bit with age, but not very much. Seeing him at the Golden Globe Awards next to 6'1 Kevin Costner he could still be around 1.81m.
In U.S. Marshals he looks at least 6 feet tall. Great movie and actor, by the way!

I lived in Llano, Texas for years and Tommy Lee Jones has a ranch at nearby San Saba. Saw him many times. He is at least 6 feet tall. His brother runs his ranch and they look very similar. Both big men. About 200 lbs.
Tim said on 13/Mar/13
Wow, I was surprised myself to see him at 5'11. I thought he was 5'6 because he looked short on MIB and he also appears to have a large head, no offence though.
Ted said on 8/Feb/13
In his movies he looks 5'11
Marcondo said on 4/Feb/13
I stood next to Tommy in line at the Basalt Co. City Market in the 1990's. I am 6' 1" and I was looking down on him. He is probably 5' 8 or 5' 9", no more. I am not sure who is posting here saying he is 6 ft. or so, they must have been stoned or standing in a hole.
Sam said on 8/Jan/13
I think he's dipped below the six foot mark at 67 years old...I suspect he and Harrison Ford are around the same rough 5'11" today. He didn't particularly tall in Lincoln. Next to Dave Costabile, who I think is a strong 5'10" as he looked a couple of inches shorter than the Flight of the Conchords guys, in Lincoln, Jones looked around the same height.

I'm 5'10 in my shoes and just saw him. He has 2-3 inches on me(couldnt get close enough to get more accurate) in a cowboy boot with a work heel.(little over a inch). So I would say barefoot he is 5'11"-5'11.5".

deano said on 7/Jun/12
and also usaully you are 1 1/4 inches taller when you wake up in morning then yoiu are later in the day so tommy lee jones 5 ft 11 1/2 later in day but adding the 1 1/4 inch on would make him 6 ft 3/4 so not far off his height given and taking they round it up that pretty much kinda rounds up the answer to why actors and actress look different heights.
deano said on 7/Jun/12
I believe tommy lee jones is same height asa harriosn ford which makes him 5 ft 11 1/2 i also beleive that most actors add 1 1/2 inches of height everyone sais hgarriosn ford is 5 ft 11 1/2 when hes meant o be 6 ft 1 tommy lee hjones was same height as harrison in fugitive will smith is meant to be 6 ft 1 1/2 but is exactly 1/2 inch taller than tommy lee jones in men in black so if will smith is 6 ft and tommy lee jones is 5 ft 11 1/2 then thats still fits the claim of will being 6 ft 1 1/2 and tommy 6 ft 1, still the half inch difference, I think they definately add 1 1/2 inches to alot of actor and actresses heights. Just a fact you cant miss.

@ Silend d
will smith wearing lifts is bull...smiths 6'2 claim may be a little exaggerated but why would they want to make tommy look shorter than will ? if anything then they would want to make tommy look the same height as smith considering his role in man in black..
Silent d said on 19/Jan/12
I read somewhere that said he was 177cm. I didn't believe it. In us marshals, he makes robert downey jr look 5 foot 7. Much taller than wesley snipes who is 172cm but looked taller than downey jr in us marshals. I thought wesley snipes was close to 180cm. He looks huge on screen. 182cm is solid. Will smith was probably wearing some lifts next to Tommy lee jones.
steven said on 16/Jan/12
i agree at peak he look 5'11.5 maybe 5'11.25 , nowadays he still look tall at least 5'10.5 to 5'11 flat
bellatas said on 30/Dec/11
I agree with Rampage down below. If you look at the pics of TLJ and Sam Jackson, he actually looks around the same height. He has to be over 6 feet tall. I come on this site a lot and so many people want to make these entertainers shorter than what they are. So stupid.

Samuel L. Jackson: 6ft 1.75in (187 cm)
Tommy Lee Jones: 6 ft 0 in (183 cm)
lorne said on 10/Nov/11
Well he was a tad shorter than 6ft0.75in(184-185cm) Harrison Ford, But still a legit 6 footer in his prime. He also seems to have done well with age, as he still looked 6ft even just a few years ago, though at age 65 I think he is a fraction under 6ft by the evening.
In a nutshell:
Peak height:6ft0.25in(183-184cm range)
Today:5ft11.75in(minimum 5ft11.5in by the evening time)
Anything under 6ft for Tommy Lee at peak is absurd, even though I don't think he was quite the 6ft0.5in Rob has him listed at, and even today he wakes up 6ft.

And to Jiao: Saying he has lost only a quarter of an inch at age 65 is absurd man. I mean, come one now...

No on TLJ and BDT. Tommy Lee Jones was 6' and change at peak, and he looked this as recently as 2007 in NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN. As for BDT, there are so many people who just don't believe him to be tall--the guy slouches quite a bit, but when he stands with good posture, it's beyond clear just how tall he is.

BDT: minimum 6'2".
TLJ: peak 6' 1/2" as per Rob's listing; today, 6'0" for most of the day.

rob i just noticed you downgraded tom sizmore too 179cm... in natural born killers tommy lee jones had no more than 1 inch on sizmore and no way in hell was there 2 inches between them granted maybe tom does not have the best posture.

i really think you should find time too rent out and watch the film rob becuase seriously tommy lee jones looked no higher than 182cm next too tom.

might you consider downgrading his peak rob?

this could also mean that will smith is under 187cm even though i thought he was at least 6'1.
[Editor Rob: I'm still unsure if Sizemore has lost height, but I met Tom and if he's over 179cm at 50 I'd be shocked.]
DejaVu said on 28/Sep/11
Due to the fact that he has great posture, he can pull off looking 6'1 in his younger days. He did looked the same height as Clint Eastwood 12 years ago. He was probably 184cm during that time. Nowadays, he can still look 6 foot but there is more of a chance that he is slightly under this mark.
lloyd said on 27/Sep/11
i think he was at peak a solid 5 ft 11.5-75 (182 cm) and nowadays he's around 5 ft 11 (180 cm).
In the fugitive he looks a good cm shorter than a soli 6 ft (183 cm) Harrison Ford and in MiB he looks a god 1,5 in/ 4 cm shorter than Will Smith (who i suppose is around 6 ft 1.25 (186 cm)) so 182 is perfect for him at his peak!

I don't think he's ever even looked 6ft. i think a peak of 182cm is more accurate than 184cm.

Maybe today 5'11 (180cm)?
jake said on 14/Jun/11
I have to say he doesn't look a full 6' to me. Had a max of 2 inches over 5' 9.5 Connie Nielsen in William Friedkin's The Hunted. In my opinion, at 64-65, he's 5' 11.5 (182 cm). He was 6' or potentially pushing 184 cm at peak.
teatree said on 11/Jun/11

he NEVER looked this tall to me in his films

I thought he was about 5-10 or 5-9 ???
Sam said on 2/Jun/11
I suspect he's lost a little more height because in the recent "The Sunset Limited" Samuel L. Jackson appears to have at least 3 inches on him and we know from recent appearances next to John Cusack and The Rock, Jackson barely seems to hit 6'2" anymore.
James said on 7/Apr/11
Looked a few inches taller than Downey. Downey Jr could be between 5'7-5'8 though?

Tommy Lee Jones 5'11.5

Johan Cruyff said on 6/Apr/11
I met him 2 times, in 1989 and 1993. He's height's were:

Morning (out of bed)= 6'0.5" (1.84 m)
After 1,5-3 hrs= 6' (1.83 m)
After 5-10 hrs= 5'11.75" (1.82 m)

Today, i belive he's not over 5'11.5" (1.81,5 m).
S.W. said on 5/Apr/11
I just saw the movie US Marshals with Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Downy Jr. and I wanted to know the height of Tommy Lee Jones. I checked and found out that the belief is TLJ is 5'10" to 6' ft. tall. Robert Downy Jr. is 5'8" and in the movie TLJ was looking Robert Downy Jr. in the eye!!! TLJ is NOT 6 foot or 5'10" more like 5'8" to 5'9".
E G B said on 28/Mar/11
looks pretty large compared to Robert Dawney Jr. in U.S. Marshalls
Candyman said on 16/Mar/11
You'd have to see him in person. He is still 6'0" with his massive head, just has a non-imposing body.
Martin said on 10/Mar/11
I don't know if anybody has mentioned this before, but this guy has a huge head which might make him appear shorter than he really is.

I don't understand those 5'11 claims. He still looks 6'0 next to Josh Brolin who is 5'10(?) and Javier Bardem who is in the 5'11 range.

no way he's near 6'1". His peak was definately 5'11" to 5'11.5"

In US Marshalls looked between 5'11-6'0.

I agree with all you guys 6'1 is a joke for Tommy and he is shorter than he makes himself out to be. In Under Seige looked similar in height to 5'11.75 Gary Busey as well.

Well with Steven Seagal and Gary Busey he looked under this listing.

Actors are way shorter than they make themselves out to be. Huge guys like Seagal make these guys look under there claims.

You may not know this, but Tommy Lee Jones' roommate in college was former VP Al Gore. Al has been listed at 6-1, which I think is pretty close. Can anyone find any pics of them during their college days? I think they went to Harvard.

Hahha what's wrong with people sense of vision?...In MIB he is clearly an inch shorter than Will Smith...

Tommy Lee Jones still looks taller than Javier Bardem. The lowest he is today is 182cm.

In Men and Black 3 it will be Will Smith at 6"1.75(187cm) and Tommy Lee Jones at 5"11.75(182cm)

Tommy Lee Jones looked to have about 2 inches on Jason Patric, and was almost the exact same height as James Franco(5ft11) in In The Valley of Elah. I'm thinking he's more like 5ft11.25-5ft11.5 now. In certain shots he looked tall enough, but in others rather average. On another note man has he aged in the last few years. He's always had a craggy face, but he really looks to be in his upper 60's-early 70's, as opposed to his real age of 61.

dmeyer said on 27/Jul/07

dmeyer said on 27/Jul/07
lately i dont think he was more than than 5'11.5 since he looks about 2 in under 185 186 smith maybe 5'11.75 5 to 10 years ago and 6'0.5 at 20s
timber said on 26/Jul/07
I tend to agree with Ray. I think he is no more than 5'11" flat.
Ray said on 26/Jul/07
No way is Tommy Lee Jones over 6'. If you look at Under Siege, Gary Busey (6')has an inch on him and TLJ is wearing cowboy boots. I'd give him 5'10.5". This makes sense cos Will Smith in Men in Black was 2" taller than him and I peg Will Smith at 6'0.5" as many do.
dmeyer said on 27/Jun/07
rob you agree he aint that tall today and was 6 ft flat in men in black since you agree 1.5 in differance

[Editor Rob: likelier 183]

to me he looked close to 2 in under will who is 6'1.5 so 6 ft not 6'0.5 but easily 6'0.5 to 6'0.75 in younger days

saw him in reno once... looked under 6 feet from my 6'3 perspective.
Elisabeth said on 10/May/07
I have always thought that a 6 footer is tall for a man and a woman.So Jones looks 6'1".My mom saw him at a dinner 20 years back and said he was kind of a tall guy.
bikagyura said on 29/Apr/07
looked about half an inch taller than 6' 1" Harrison Ford in The Fugitive... How about 6' 1" at least in his prime?
dmeyer said on 9/Jan/07
but to me loks 2 inches shorter than 6'1.5 smith and thats more 6 feet and he is closer to 5'11.5 nowadays but defenetly 184 in his 20s
Editor Rob said on 23/Sep/06
In 1991, a newspaper mentioned "Jones' bios give his height as 6 feet 11/2 or 6 feet 1/4"
kerry said on 18/Aug/06
he looks lower than 6ft in most of his movie frankly.. i did gave him 5ft11(1.81m) will smith was a barefoot 6ft1(1.86m) at most..

Tommy Lee is shorter in person than he looks on camera. I stood only a few feet away from him when at Fox studios they were shooting a scene for the film Volcano. I always thought he was at least 6'2". He appeared to be roughly 6'. But he has hands like a gorilla! I mean they're the largest I've ever seen on a man of normal size.
Anonymous said on 10/Jan/06

tommy used to live near me in san antonio texas in the 90's. we frequented many of the same places. we stood in line at the cashier several times. i am 5'10 and some times wear a moderately heavy rubber soled casual shoe. we were exactly the same height when he was wearing street shoes.
