@Canson: He could be 193.7 but I’m confident he isn’t taller than that. With Chris Rock and Will Smith, for example, at times looks either that or flat 193. I also don’t think he’s shorter than flat 193.
Canson said on 7/Dec/22
@Andrey: the listing could be his low on the day meaning he would be 6’5 out of bed but if he dips all the way to 6’4 I doubt he’s 6’5” out of bed if that’s the case. Assuming he doesn’t, what you said is still correct being out of bed height is completely irrelevant. I don’t get why people even mention that in a conversation about height. It’s probably to make them feel better about themselves. Height is vertical not horizontal. You measure it standing up. Lying down adds height which you gradually lose from standing. Rob uses lunchtime which is ok being it’s estimated to be 5 hours out of bed and someone my size loses about maybe 75-85% of their height before lunch but then some that are substantially taller than me may not since they have more room to compress than I do. On a normal day it can be 3/4” and I’ve usually lost 5/8 by lunch which is 83.33% or even at 2 cm loss I’ve lost 79.3%. But in my case, I use my normal low of 6’4.25 as opposed to a lunchtime of 6’4 3/8” as it makes no sense to claim the latter. Even Jdubbz said the same in his post that we sit closer to 6’6 (for him) than 6’7 and 6’4 for me than 6’5 for the majority of the day and claiming a half here in the states just adds to the confusion. At least for me it does. People either ask me why I don’t claim 6’5 or why I bother with half when 6’4 is tall enough. I don’t claim 6’5” because I know that I’m not and when I stand next to a 6’5” person who measures that at a low or even a hair under it, it’s obvious that I’m shorter than them so one of us would be lying and it would just be stupid and they’re right that 6’4 is tall enough. However if I were 6’3.75 I would still say I’m about 6’4” so That leads to confusion being I’d have a distinct advantage over a 6’3.75 person or more so for a 6’3.5 guy claiming 6’4”. But I feel that rounding down 1/4” is the norm. If the halves were used correctly, it could include someone whose low is in the 3/8-5/8 range since that’s how a metric would work with a 194 range guy falling into that range (could even include 6’4.25) but it doesn’t unfortunately. People just want to eek every ounce of height they can get. If I claim 6’4 it’s closer to the truth and even measuring 1/4” over it or slightly higher on a more relaxed day or even less than 1/4” on a more demanding day would put me right at what i claim

Tyler Perry is a strong 6'5 out of bed. It seems like Rob takes height from tall guys. Here's why I say this when someone is short, they usually get an inch or 2 added to their height. But tall guys often times get an inch or inch and a half taken off their height.

Listings on this site aren’t out of bed, so Perry’s listing could very well match your estimate

So Rob maybe Mr.Perry got up in the morning at 6'5 got dressed measured himself in shoes at 6'5¾/6'6 justifying his 6'6 claims.😂
Vincent Baroid said on 12/Aug/22
I've heard him call himself six foot four, five and six.. I think he likes to wear heels that give him a few extra inches. Someone found an old resume he had from his modeling days where he listed his height at 6'2 1/2". Hes been photographed a lot of times with the 6'2" Will Smith, and the older photos show less of a size disparity than more recent ones.
Click Here
Click Here
Pictured here with the also 6'2" Craig Robinson shows no great differential.
Click Here
I would guess he's, as hes said 6'2.5" and wears lifts or big heels, bc in the pics of him, even with the same celebs, his height seems to fluctuate at least 3" at a time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/May/22
Rob, who do you rate as tallest out of Perry, Strahan, McBride, Clarke Duncan, Goldblum and Neeson?
Realist said on 29/Apr/22
I think he is 6'5.5 out of bed and 6'4.6 at nighttime. No way is he ever under 6'4 because if he is then Michael Jai White is 5'10 flat and those other guys would be shorter than listed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/22
Strong 6ft4 is fair....still not sure about a flat 6ft4. Average guess is definitely off the mark
Blueray said on 12/Jan/22
Well he is about an inch taller than Idris Elba who's just under 6ft 3in so 6ft 4in is pretty accurate. I've been to Madame Tussauds before and remember seeing Will Smith and David Beckhams waxworks. Idris is taller than these guys by the same distance as myself as I average 1.90m or 6ft 2 3/4in, hence I have a good idea of Tylers height.

192.5-193 before bed and 194.5-195 out of bed.
Hyper said on 30/Oct/21

Just imagine Bo Burnham meeting this guy and Tyler just has those 6’5” 6’6” claims! 😵‍💫😵‍💫😵‍💫
Editor Rob
There would be awkward voice mumbling and a quick change of topic.
Mickie said on 1/Sep/21
I think Tyler is 6'4". There are times he can look a bit over or a bit under but overall I think 6'4" is a fair mark.
Canson said on 19/Aug/21
I think solid 6’4” afternoon height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Aug/21
Rob, did he start out at 6ft5?

I do think closer to 6ft4 but not under.
Editor Rob
I think in 2006 maybe did then lost 2 fractions...
recapa said on 6/Jun/21
192.5-193cm range.
ALEXIZ/180cm said on 6/May/21
193 cm
Canson said on 21/Apr/21
@Berta: depends on who you ask. If that’s Tyler’s afternoon height, he and I are the same height. I hear people say universally that 6’3” or even 6’2” is. Most very tall guys say 6’3 or 6’4”. IMHO I’d go with 193. I’d lose that change and take that Or possibly even that hair under like 6’3 7/8”. That would give me a lunchtime 6’4” flat
berta said on 23/Mar/21
its strange that a 194 guy claims 198. i mean 194 is pretty mutch a prefect height for a man.
Dawn R Farmer said on 14/Nov/20
Tyler you look about 6'6"👍
FriedChicken said on 26/Oct/20
6'4" flat but it's the lowest I'd go. Michael Strahan edged him out by a smidge.
Canson said on 9/Jul/20
@Mickie: well said. Brock has an inch on Tyler Perry lol
Mickie said on 7/Jul/20
Afrojack claiming 6'9" and even 6'10" is the worst. And Brock O'Hurn claiming 6'7".
mark thompson said on 2/Jul/20
@Kerrypackrr its kinda weird that these guys, who have heights that are considered to be tall and respectable, would claim to be 2 or 3 inches taller.
James roy said on 15/Jun/20
Hey rob who do you think would have a taller peak height, Tyler Perry of Jeff Goldblum
Editor Rob
Hard to choose, Jeff in the 80's could give a taller impression on screen, although to be fair I've not seen as much of Tyler's films as Jeff's.
Kerrypackrr said on 7/May/20
Hey rob what do you think is worse?
Tyler Perry claiming 6’6
Tyson Fury claiming 6’9
Or The Rock claiming 6’5
Editor Rob
I think The Rock claiming 6ft 5 in recent years was a bit of a stretch.
berta said on 10/Jan/20
probably measured himself 6 foot 5,5 in shoes and claims 6 foot 6 and 6 foot 5. without shoes closer to 193
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Nov/19
I wouldn't complain, Viper! 😉👍
viper said on 12/Nov/19
No taller than 6-4
truthteller25 said on 6/Nov/19
He is 6'4 or 6'5
184guy2 said on 11/Oct/19
now this is a BS claim , struggles to look over 6'4
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Oct/19
Lol, there's no reason to claim 6'6" at 6'4 range. Not only it's ridiculous, but also there are no added benefits of being 6'6" over 6'4", especially if you're not a pro athlete.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Oct/19
@ Christian - That's exactly what he said on the Ellen show. Not once but TWICE, as can be seen in the video Andrea sent in. Yes, it's exactly the same one!

Now I'm beginning to believe that the bear was an extra large cat....🙄
Nik Ashton said on 11/Oct/19
@ Sandy Cowell - 🎩🍌🌲🐩🐈👨👩!

That’s very interesting considering the fact that he had already claimed to be 6’5”! The most important thing is what Rob and 25 other voters say! 🐘👌
Canson said on 11/Oct/19
@Christian: he’s claimed it at least once. Maybe twice
Andrea said on 10/Oct/19
Rob, you may want to add his 6'6 claim to the top (from the interview I think Sandy is talking about): Click Here
Considering how often he struggles to look even 6'4 though, he certainly gives true 6'6ers a very bad name!
Editor Rob
Yeah I'll mention that, he should have stuck to the 6ft 5 which is more believable!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Oct/19
💃 Correction Time! 💃

...and he has SAID he's 6ft6 TWICE.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/19
Do you mean that Tyler claimed to be 6'6"?
Nik Ashton said on 10/Oct/19
@ Sandy Cowell - Congratulations on being top of the Comments Page! 🌲🍌🐩🐈 👩👴!

It’s great that he said on Essence, "Can you imagine a six-foot-five man sleeping in a Geo Metro".

The average guess justifies the listing!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Oct/19
Tyler is on the Ellen DeGeneres show and he has he's 6ft6 TWICE. He's a nice guy and can have 6ft4.75.
K.A 188 said on 5/Jun/19
Just saw him on a show he is 6ft4 and change.
Canson said on 9/Mar/19
Strahan measured 6’4.25 at the combine so likely he’s just a solid 6’4” at a low at best. Kobe looks near an inch taller so possible he’s either lost height or was never quite the full 6’4.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/19
Perry and Strahan are both very strong 6ft4 guys (w/h 6ft5 out of bed)
berta said on 19/Feb/18
good update 193-193-7 range
Bennett said on 5/Feb/18
This guy make ashton kutcher look below 6ft2.
Canson said on 19/Jan/18
This could be right. Definitely not lower than 6’4”.
Andrea said on 25/Dec/17
Only a cm? I thought it was comfortably bigger than that there (like no less than an inch)... That being said, do you still think at worst he would be as tall as Boris? It's funny he claims 6'5 and apparently even 6'6, when the same Boris only claims 6'4 and can look comfortably taller than him in that movie...
Editor Rob
I'd say for Tyler, the lowest would be 6ft 4, highest probably 6ft 4.5...maybe 4.25 is closer to the truth, I noticed
Andrea said on 24/Dec/17
Here you go: Click Here
Editor Rob
I'd say he looked a cm smaller than Boris there...if in slippers that might account for a difference, but yeah there's a chance Tyler isn't really over 6ft 4 much.
Andrea said on 23/Dec/17
Yeah, watching the entire scene is the best thing to do, but Boris really looks at least a good inch taller than him there... Now, I'm not sure about Tyler's footwear, but when he walks into the room, the sounds he makes, makes me think he's wearing something like slippers. So he may well have something like half an inch less footwear than Boris there. The thing is that it still doesn't add up. I mean, if anything, their listings should be reversed... Are you sure Tyler would be at least if not taller than Boris? Hmm... There's another scene in the movie where they're playing basketball (this time Tyler is playing a man and I doubt his shoes are much different than Boris') and, although it is certainly not an ideal scene, it still looks like Boris would edge him out...
Editor Rob
I'd need to watch the clip or movie....there is a lot of time Tyler just seems around 6ft 4 range
Andrea said on 22/Dec/17
Rob, can you give him a photo? I know you said that anywhere between 6'4 and 6'4.5 is possible, but how the hell does he look a good inch shorter than Boris here? Click Here Maybe, since he's playing a woman, he's in ballerina shoes, so he has around an inch less footwear than Boris? Hmm...
Editor Rob
I've not watch any Madea films, but would like to see how he shaped up in the scene with boris.
RP said on 19/Dec/17
6'4" barefoot ...6'5" only with shoes.
Joe # # # said on 7/Dec/17
6'4.25 Max
Matthew Robinson said on 17/Oct/17
@Canson yeah I think if I'd have to guess, you might edge Tyler by a cm or so (since you're more 194 cm) but you guys surely would be very close. Both taller than myself at 190-ish cm which is already safely in the top 5% in the U.S.
Canson said on 14/Oct/17
@Matthew Robinson: odd right? I am 6’4” and a bit myself and would never want to be 6’6”. I think perry is either my height or maybe within a full cm of me
Junior said on 13/Oct/17
He look 6'4.75" next to 6'2.5" Ashton Kutcher
Matthew Robinson said on 12/Oct/17
That's funny he'd claim as high as 6'6"! He's 6'4". He can look less than that at times (like with Obama) but he also doesn't always hold the best posture. When standing decently I think a solid 6'4" is fair for Tyler.
Canson said on 10/Oct/17
6’6” is a shoe height to keep consistent with Hollywood. Like death stroke said at best 194 possibly 193 range
Deathstroke said on 10/Oct/17
On Jimmy Fallon's show Tyler Perry claimed to be 6'6" :D I believe he is 194cm :)
Canson said on 10/Sep/17
@Micky: I think they're similar in height. Tyler is leaning a bit. Both can be a strong 6'4" or a full 6'4" no less at night.
Mathew Robinson said on 6/Aug/17
6'4" max. Shorter than Strahan. But he's a tall guy, so I think it's reasonable give him the full 6'4".
Micky said on 5/Jul/17
He looked a little shorter than 6'4.25" Michael Strahan to me. Here's a picture from that day Click Here
Sam said on 22/Jun/17
The guy is more of a flat 6'4". 6'4.25" is the most I could picture for him.
Canson said on 17/Jun/17
He has terrible posture but at his peak looked about 6'4-6'5 next to Will Smith. He admitted to being a bit insecure about being so tall. Maybe now he is only 6'4" but not under that
Matthew Robinson said on 17/Jun/17
Looked more 6'3" - 6'3.5" next to Obama. I'd knock at least a quarter inch off this listing personally.
berta said on 8/Jun/17
rob are you shore he really is over 6 foot 4? havent seen him in that mutch but i mean with matthew fox, he looked 4,5 cm taller. 5 cm is the very max 6 cm is impossible to see. And he is here listed 7 cm taller? He doesnt look a cm taller than 192 with fox. In all those photos i would have thought.
Fox 187,5
perry 192
Ed burns 184
shiva 181 cms said on 28/Apr/17
This guy needs a downgrade to 6'4
184guy said on 21/Apr/17
Closer to 6'4
berta said on 7/Feb/17
dont think he look anythin over 193 at best with matthew fox
moe said on 1/Dec/16
John Schneider is 6'3. There's barely an inch difference between him and Tyler. I'm not even convinced Tyler's the full 6'4.
123 said on 28/Oct/16
@josh jeffords you are right a legit six-five irl is a extremely tall guy, Tyler is't staggeringly tall not quite, however he is still very big. six four and a half with bad posture is what he is. he's a easy two inches taller than Affleck in gone girl, or if you can't be bothered to watch that look at when he came on Craig Ferguson he was a easy three inches taller
josh jeffords said on 25/Oct/16
Dunno he looks well under 6 4 in photos doesnt look all that tall but dont care for his humor so didnt watch his cross dressing movies.
His posture is tough to determine, I have a good friend who is 6 5 that height sticks out like a sore thumb.
He looks absolutely nothing like him much shorter and my buddy had a bad back so his posture was off.
I doubt he is much over 6 3 barefoot if that, and in fact he is smaller than stephen farrelly who is listed at 6 3..
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 14/Oct/16
Struggled to look 6'4" even next to Obama.
123 said on 10/Sep/16
yepers i agree 194cm guy, in gone girl he looked it with Affleck also was a EASY 3 inches on Craig Ferguson when he came on. His six-five claim was understandable however six-six was certainly NOT thats over one inch
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/16
I don't see him as the full 6ft5 but 6ft4 flat looks too low, especially next to a guy like Affleck who is a benchmark for 6ft2 solid
Dejavu said on 2/Sep/16
He looks 2 inches taller than Ben Affleck and looks taller than how Jason Momoa looks next to him. Definitely a legit 194cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/16
Solid 194cm
The Man said on 2/Aug/16
6ft4.5 peak, flat 6ft4 nowdays. Still can pull off looking 6ft4.25 though.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 27/Nov/15
Sam said on 20/Nov/15
Rob, would you consider going with 6'4.25"? I agree that he really doesn't look more than a flat 6'4" much of the time.


Yeah I think that would be an improvement anyways.

Even closer to the camera than 6'1.5" Matthew Fox: Click Here
With 6'2.75" listed Idres Elba: Click Here
With peak 6'2.5" Sidney Poiter: Click Here
Dropping a bit of height but closer to the camera with 6'1.5" Will Smith: Click Here

I have trouble seeing him at anything more than a flat 6'4". Especially given all these pictures and the video with Obama. He's quite obviously a little taller than the 6'2" range guys but I've got to imagine someone a good 6'5"-er like challenger 15 has at least 3 cm on Tyler. 6'4" max.
Andrea said on 18/Nov/15
Yeah, he can look 6'4.5 with those people! But again Ben i don't think he's over 6'2 and Neil looks more 5'11 flat with Obama... 6'4 flat, i can buy that! One thing is sure, he's not the 6'5 he claims!
Editor Rob
you could make an arguement for 6ft 4-4.5, anywhere in that range, but I wouldn't go lower than that.
Andrea said on 18/Nov/15
It was just to show that you can't trust just one photo... Momoa looks more 6'3.5 with you and looks well under 6'4 with Jared for some reason (there are more than just one picture and Jason always looks clearly shorter)... That's it! I repeat maybe you didn't spend as much time with Jared and fooled you into being shorter than he is? He does look taller than 6'4 with too many people to be just 6'4 (or maybe the others are overestimated?). Even with Zach there's noway in hell he's just 2 cms taller, he can pull off 6'5 with him if Zach is really 191!
Getting back to Tyler, he generally can look anywhere between 6'3 and 6'4! Speaking of photos, he looks shorter than weak 6'2 Gabriel Aubry here: Click Here
Somewhere "near" 6'4 is not so crazy but saying he can look anywhere between 6'4 and 6'5 it is! Look at him with Obama, then look at Obama with Kobe. Can you really believe Kobe would be just 1/4 inch taller?
Editor Rob
I think if you see him beside guys like Affleck and Neil PH I wouldn't want to argue he was any less than 6ft 4.

also you can see missi pyle in a basic heel to the right of can see how tall Missi looks with Eugene Simon who clears 5ft 11 himself.

Andrea said on 18/Nov/15
It is just a picture, Rob, and Tyler is maybe closer to the camera? You can see the same Momoa with our friend Jared ;) Click Here
Tyler can look 6'3-6'4 a lot, 6'4 at most! Of course you can find pictures where he has camera advantages and can pull off taller but then again you can find pictures of Jared looking 6'5 too...
Editor Rob
both those guys really don't look much different in person. Momoa when he stands tall is very near 6ft 4, I doubt he would measure much less...although for jared it is always a possibly a little over 6ft 4 as well more than a chance of being a fraction under 6ft 4.
Andrea said on 17/Nov/15
Exactly, Matthew! That's what i'm talking about! He looks over 6'3 with Obama, but 6'4.5? I'm just not seeing it!
Rob says that he can look anywhere between 6'4 and 6'5... I don't know what he has seen but he never looks anywhere near his claiming! He could be calling his height in shoes but 6'4 is probably the most i'd argue!
Editor Rob
he can look 6ft 4, sometimes he can look taller, at least One occasion with our friend Momoa ;)
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 15/Nov/15
At 2:46 you can see him and Obama together. Click Here

Anything over 6'4" flat there seems highly charitable to me. You could make a case for even less.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 12/Oct/15
Visible Smaller than Manganiello
6ft 4.25 in max for him
Matthew said on 11/Jun/15
Strahan who is 6'4.5" looked slightly taller, Perry should be listed at just 6'4".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/15
Rob, could 195cm be closer?
Editor Rob
he can look anywhere in 6ft 4-5 range at times.
Andrea said on 6/Mar/15
After having another look at this guy, it is true that he doesn't stand well in many photos so he can look max 6'3 at times, but yeah i can believe he'd measure near 6'4 if standing tall! 6'4.5 is still a stretch, IMO!
pablo77bar said on 15/Feb/15
This guy is about the same height of Michael Strahan who is smaller than 196 Manganiello
194,5 is a good bet
Hypado said on 26/Jan/15
If Ben Afleck is 189cm, Tyler is 194/195cm

6ft 4.5in is fine for Perry.
Ronzo said on 8/Jan/15
I'm 6'5". Met Tyler Perry and he was slightly taller than me. 6'4.5" is low for this guy
Dmeyer said on 30/Dec/14
If he is 6'4 flat then affleck is more 6'1.5-2in zone
Dmeyer said on 30/Dec/14
6cm taller affleck looks right 188-88.5 and 194cm
Pinetar said on 23/Dec/14
In the Witness Protection movie Madea calls herself 6'2".

He's just slightly taller than 6'2,5 Affleck in Gone Girl. Maybe a inch of difference tops
KROC said on 23/Apr/14
Michael Strahan is 6'4.5, I met him along time ago. Tyler is probably about 6'4.
Dsmooth said on 31/Jan/14
Pretty close in height to 6'5 Michael Strahan in the video. Rob's listing is pretty accurate.

Sam said on 29/Jan/14
Sorry, but this guy is 6'4" tops IMO. Here he is dropping a cm or so of height but looking pretty much the same as 6'2.75" Idris Elba.

Lo sgozzatore said on 8/Dec/13
Then what's your guess about Aubry? Here's with Joel McHale, that you insist being near 6'4: Click Here
He looks a bit shorter, like between 6'2 and 6'3 (if McHale is really almost 6'4)... But then again he looked no less than an inch shorter than Tom Welling, so max 187...
Editor Rob
6ft 2 for him I think is fair
Lo sgozzatore said on 7/Dec/13
Rob, does he really look 6'4.5 next to Gabriel Aubry, who gets listed at 6'2 and actually looks more than an inch shorter than Welling?
Click Here
And please don't tell me again it's the posture!
I've seen Alex Cross and didn't give me a very tall impression as he should do! I mean, when i think of a 6'4.5 guy i think about guys like Ibrahimovic, Alexander Skarsgard or even Jared Padalecki, who always look huge! This guy doesn't give me that impression, maybe he's between 6'3 and 6'4?
Editor Rob
I don't think he's below 6ft 4, 6ft 4-4.5 is a range I think he can look.
Lo sgozzatore said on 17/Oct/13
A Jared Padalecki or Alexander Skarsgard give a much taller impression than this guy but he still gets listed taller.
Lorne said on 11/Oct/13
In all fairness, he doesn't stand well a lot of the time, I can see legit 6ft4. But 6ft4.5? That's pushing it, but for Rob to upgrade him must be a reason, I'll try to take a look, He can look huge at times, then doesn't stack up to guys like mangenillo. I don't think he was 4 inches taller than Chris pine! But, I do think he'd measure 193.
Lo sgozzatore said on 6/Oct/13
Rob, is this a joke? I mean, he already didnt look 6'4 and you upgraded him to 6'4.5? A Alexander Skarsgard would look noticeably taller than him, i guess!

He got upgraded half an inch? I could've sworn he was listed at 6'4" after when he was downgraded from 6'5". Anyways, I think he's 6'4" max.
Lo sgozzatore said on 1/Sep/13
This guy is one of the shortest 6'4 guys i've ever seen. He makes Will Smith look close to his claim (6'2.5)...
Johnjohn12 said on 19/Feb/13
I am 6'4" an have met Tyler perry with my brother who is slightly taller than me and Tyler perry was easily taller than the both of us.
Lo Sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/12
Well done! The funny thing is that he probably is neither a full 6'4 guy and claims 6'5 -.-' He's pretty big in frame but that doesnt make him 6'5... 6'3-6'4 is his range!
Mathew said on 26/Oct/12
Yeah this was a much needed downgrade, well done. 6'4" is a better estimate than 6'5".
Fern194cm-192cm said on 24/Oct/12
Rob, I have a question. How is it possible that Manganiello and Perry are both listed at 6,5 on this website. Im not trying to bust your balls but I take it you have seen the 'Live with Kelly' video and Joe isn't standing straight and is around an inch to 1.5 inches taller. I think Perry is my height. I believe Perry dips below 6,4 at night after a long day.. What do you think? Also, do you believe Michael Strahan is a legit 6,5? I think joe is around Strahan's height.
Editor Rob
yeah it is more likely he isn't a 6ft 5 barefoot.
Aragorn 5'11 said on 22/Oct/12
Lo sgozzatore, If that's the case which it probably is, then Tyler Perry is 6'3.5 barefoot, and 6'4 or 6'5 in shoes. For him it's very easy to be close to 6'5 in public because he only has to wear 1 inch shoes!
Lo sgozzatore said on 21/Oct/12
Aragorn, the funny thing is that Will Smith is no way 6'2! He's 186 at best!
Aragorn 5'11 said on 20/Oct/12
He's not more than 6'4. He's 2 inches taller than Will Smith (6'2). And he's hardly an inch taller than Idris Elba (6'2.75). He could be 6'5 in shoes but definitely 6'4 or a little less barefoot.
Lo sgozzatore said on 20/Oct/12
Rob, you really think he's a 6'5? O_O I mean, he's like one of the shortest 6'5 listed guy i've ever seen. He looked slightly taller than Matthew Fox, at Alex Cross premiere and we know Fox is not even 6'2 (he looked noticeably shorter than MC Gainey that you say is just 6'2).
Editor Rob
he could be between 6ft 4 and 5, he looks a guy who doesn't stand at his full height in a lot of photos.
Nick said on 18/Oct/12
Claimed 6'6" today on Katie Couric's talk show. Maybe in dress shoes.
SAK said on 15/Sep/12
On americas next top model cycle 19 he said he is 6ft6. But he didn't look too much taller then 5ft10 tyra in big heels.
Mathew said on 3/Sep/12
He's never looked near 6'5" to me.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 5/Aug/12
Looks 6'4 to me...
Mr. R said on 7/Jun/12
Tyler is huge! I saw him at the premiere of his movie "Good Deeds", and he is pretty close to 6-5.
Cranberries said on 4/Dec/11
Perry really is huge. I've heard he wears a size 16 shoe, and he has big hands, and looks well over 250 lbs. 6'4.5" is the lowest I'd venture.
NCL said on 21/Sep/11
Since it's been a while, I'll post this again. Pause at 1:30 exactly when they're shaking hands. Craig is around 6'1-6'2" Click Here Perry's got 3" on him. That makes him 6'4"-6'5". I've seen one of his plays - he's pretty huge. Definitely taller and broader than everyone else in the show and there were some big guys in it.
LAN Jiao said on 15/Sep/11
tyler perry just like e comedian guy Peter Serafinowicz who shorter than 6ft3 and dare claim 6"5. tyler and peter look weak 6ft3, 6ft2.5 is the fact. liar.
Jake T. said on 13/Sep/11
Tyler looks like a 6'4 tall man and with other celebrities doesn`t appear to be 6'5. Maybe 6'4 is the real spot.
lan jiao said on 7/Sep/11
standing straight tyler was only 3inch taller than 6ft Michael Jai White without straight up. 6ft2.5 bet on reality height. 6ft5 keep people laughing as tyler the comedian director. lol
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 18/Aug/11
Click Here less than 5 inches taller than 5'10" Chris Rock. Also, just out of curiosity, how tall is Steve Harvey? Chris Rock looks roughly the same height as him: Click Here Harvey claims 6'2"...
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 18/Aug/11
Very big guy, but he overestimates himself; he said he was 6'6" in that Ferguson interview, I think... But he's closer to 6'4" than 6'5" I think... It's possible he even dips below 6'4" sometimes. Heavy and well-built though... 250 lbs or more sometimes.
Callin it like I see it said on 8/Aug/11
Theres no way in hell Tyler Perry's 6'5 or even close. I'd approximate his true, unassisted height as falling somewhere between 6'1.5" to 6'2" which still makes him a pretty big guy. For my proof, heres Tyler Perry standing next to 6'6 Stedman Graham, who at even with a distorted camera angle, has at least a 4 inches on him: Click Here
Mathew said on 29/Jun/11
I never bought 6'5", I think 6'3.5" is closer to the truth.
Nick said on 22/Apr/11
have lost your sight guys? check better the pic Anonymous1 has posted he is clearly shorter than Bill O'Reilly even 3 to 4cm so id that guy is 192cm maybe he is 6'3''or 190cm but even 189 could be spot on.
gogol bordella said on 22/Apr/11
in the brief time he stood next to conan last night, seemed to have a solid inch to inch and a half on him..methinks conan is a little under 6-4 so 6-5 for perry sounds about right (need to get barkley to star in the next madea though as the crazy cat lady though, so we can get an up to date height on him...)
Viper said on 23/Mar/11
Hes not 6-4. Always looks 6-3 range with 6-1 Barry Bonds.
Candyman said on 23/Mar/11
Looks just over 6'4" next to Bill O'Reilly.
Anonymous1 said on 2/Mar/11
Rob, Tyler is not 6'5 or 6'6, he is 6'4. Maybe downgrade?

What? I clearly said he looks shorter than 6-5 with 6-1 Barry Bonds.
MD said on 26/Feb/11
Viper, either you are confusing Tyler Perry with someone else, or you are just being plain silly, now.

With 6'0.5" Michael Jai White:

Click Here

Perhaps he's not a full 6'5", but to say that he's in the 6'0" range, himself, is just plain stupid.
Viper said on 25/Feb/11
Hes not 6-5. He looks shorter than that with 6-1 Barry Bonds
NCL said on 4/Nov/10
If you pause at 1:30 that's probably the best reference

Lenad said on 4/Jul/09
195-196cm and Will Smith is 188-189cm
Big King said on 21/Jun/09
Perry is really not more than 6'4.5" because he looked at least 2" taller than 6'2" Will Smith.
Lenad said on 20/Jun/09
He looks pretty tall next to Will Smith. I'd give him a solid 6ft5
Clay said on 7/Jun/09
Ace, they put Pine on a box so he wouldn't look too small next to Perry.
Ace said on 12/May/09
There's a scene at the end of star trek when tyler perry awards chris pine (captain kirk) with a medal, and the two are facing each other. In that scene, the difference between chris pine and tyler perry looked about 2 inches max. It was really weird.
thekiddd said on 17/Mar/09
Well, if they are something like 6'4 1/2", they might say 6'5" just to round up. 1/2" isn't really much of an exaggeration but it still is. If they were like 6'4 3/4" or whatever, then they will 95% of the time say they are the next inch up but I don't really call that exaggerating IMO. Just rounding to the nearest.
Anonymous said on 15/Mar/09
Wow, why are some people so obsessed about downgrading celebs who are truly tall? When someone is over 6'4, it really doesn't matter what height one is anymore, since that's already taller than 98-99% of the population. Do you guys think people out there are really vain enough to lie about their heights in order to "appear" taller than another 0.1% of the population? What advantage would someone gain to be 6'5 rather than 6'4, other than in very specific professions that this man clearly isn't in? I can't think of any.
Big King said on 8/Mar/09
I think his 6'6" claimings is a source enough! So if he's already written as 6'5" in his most websites then nothing prevents on taking the middle between 6'5" and 6'6".
thekiddd said on 23/Feb/09
Let's not say he's 6'5 1/2" since there is no source to prove it.
BMAC said on 1/Jan/09
Tyler Perry is every bit 6'5. Most of the male actors in his plays are between 6ft and 6'3 and he is still considerably taller than they are
Haze said on 7/Nov/08
looks 6'4ish with bonds
Big King said on 13/Sep/08
Let's say he is 6'5 1/2".
Clay said on 10/Sep/08
This guy is 6'5'' he was looking slightly taller than the 6'4/6'4.5 Conan. He also mentioned his height as 6'6'' on Conan's show as well. And Barry Bonds is 6'2'' - for christ sakes Viper.
Taylor said on 10/Sep/08
He was on Conan O'Brien the other night and appeared a good inch taller when they shook hands
Big King said on 8/Sep/08
Maybe Tyler has confused 197cm with 6'6". I can't believe that there's an inch difference if Perry stands up straight. A half inch could be on his height.
Big King said on 8/Sep/08
So Rob, Brah already showed you a link where Perry admited his height as 6'6". Why don't you change his height to 6'6" or 6'5 1/2" then?
Big King said on 8/Sep/08
Perry looked almost 8 inches taller than Akon. I still think that Tyler's height is somewhere near 6'6".
Jake Is Back said on 27/Mar/08
Tyler Perry is not 6'5". Magic Johnson is closer to 6'7". Viper is correct.
thekiddd said on 15/Mar/08
He isn't taller than 6'5". He's more likely 6'4 1/2 than 6'5 1/2" all though I still think 6'5".
Paddy said on 8/Mar/08
Let's give Tyler 6'5 1/2". He really looks that tall. 6'5" is a bit underestimated.
Mitchell said on 8/Feb/08
I am so puzzled. Tyler, do you want to get married. U are so handsome and intellegent. If you are looking for a wife - you should come to Sunny St Lucia, in the caribbean. I really want to know - is it by choice or you have not found the right one. Well I agree you. Yout are taking your time. The Lord WILL send you the right one in due time and the Person He gives you will be perfect.

magic is not 6'9 and tyler perry is 6'5.Why do ppl think all celebs lie about their height.
Viper said on 20/Dec/07
Magic is around 6-7.
Brock said on 20/Dec/07
Viper, Magic Johhson isn't 6'7......he's 6'9.

Hes lying big time. He looks 6-3 at most in multiple pictures with 6-1 Barry Bonds. Click Here

Hey Rob here's another quote from Tyler Perry: "6'6", 6'5" at times...If I'm standing up straight, it can be 6'6"."

venus said on 14/Nov/07
Now,I believe he is 6'5, because he is big boned,long legged,has a long torso, and he has a big head too!
lauren said on 6/Nov/07
yes he is 6-5. he is my neighbor not rly but i live close to him and i can vouch that he is a solid 6ft 5in maybe taller
sweetchari said on 5/Nov/07
I have always thought he was 6'4" but 6'5" is probably correct, he is very tall
J. said on 9/Apr/06
Just got back from seeing Perry's 'Madea Goes to Jail' play. He looked 6'4"-6'5" onstage.
Richard said on 27/Mar/06
I knew he had to be between 6-3 and 6-5. Cause in his new movie he stands eye with the black actor simmons(nypd blue) who is 6-4. When tyler is playing madea he looks shorter. I think it's the bulky custome.
ice said on 9/Mar/06
This just makes his movies funnier. Now I get to invision a 6'5 guy dressing up as a woman. LOL
