I like Boy George for his openness and honesty!
The first time I realized how tall he was, it was on a programme hosted by Esther Rantzen. A little girl was a huge fan of his and suddenly he came up from behind her and lifted her up! He also stood with 5ft4 Esther, towering over her.
In his younger days, I completely go along with his being a full 6ft and now it makes sense for him to have dropped a bit as he's 56 later this Spring. I shall put 5ft11, which he openly admits to! I don't think he'd exaggerate his height - not this one!

On Celebrity Apprentice he doesn't look over 5'10". And if I remember correctly he was about the same height as Will I am on UK voice. Will is under 5'9". Maybe the measurement included his hair?

My mate who is 5"11 met him the other day, seen pic & my mate said he is short; judging by the pic I seen I'd so no more then 5"7

Saw him at a record company party in NY in 1997- I remember him being a bit shorter than me- I'm 5' 11.5. He was a bit heavier at that time. He may have been slouching or looking down which made him appear shorter. I don't want to damage my credibility by estimating his height but I know for sure he was a bit shorter than me.

He doesn't look this height on The Voice next to Ricky Wilson or Will I Am. Closer to 5'9 I would say?

With 5'7.5" Lewis Hamilton:
Can't really tell if Hamilton has a footwear advantage or not. Other photos show his shoes, but not George's. Either, it wouldn't be enough for George to be 5'11".

he's a big guy.
He's lost a lot of weight (almost 70 pounds). Somewhere between 5'11" and 6'0" in the 1980's/1990's.

I knew him on a daily basis for a while on Taboo. Lovely human being and big heart. He's around 5ft 9ins. Sorry but it's true. However truly beautiful person inside and out. A kind and fierce spirit.:) PS: His mgr Tony is 5ft 5ins but larger than life personality

I thought Boy George was taller than that. I suspect that he is giving his REAL height without shoes on. I would love to see him stand next to Tom Cruise and see Tom try and explain why Boy George is so much taller..heh. I wonder if anybody ever had a real fight with B.G. because his dad was a profesional boxer and B.G. is an amateur boxer. He could probably kick the ass of just about any other pop star.

i met him in 2009 after his club launch at Camden's Proud Stables. He seemed about 5ft 9.5/5ft10. I'm a weak 6ft 1 btw. He was a nice fella as it goes.

Saw the music video for Culture Club's "Do you Really Want to Hurt me?" and he looked taller than most of the people. Rob, is there a chance Boy George was taller than 5ft11 in his youth?

Phil, George is definitely not over 6 feet but regardless of whether you have met him, I think he's closer to 5'11". He's not 5'9". And Frank, is rarely correct. He's too emotional with his answers, I am still not sure why he's so negative.

I met him once when I was bouncing. He must be 5'10 maybe 5'11 at most ( 1986)

He actually looked no more than 5,10 on the jhonathon ross show. If ross is 6,1 goerge who had chunky trainers on was no more than 5,10 possibly 5,11 at a push. If anyone saw that, thats proof alone he's not even close to 6foot.

George I worked with in his show Taboo and know his manager Tony very well, George is around 5ft 9.5 ins to 5ft 10ins tops but is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet!

He actually is 6 feet tall. Or at least appears to be in person. In photos he looks shorter.

He IS 6' tall. I have met him at a South Beach restaurant called "Il Paparazzi" (I waited tables there) and I am 5'11" and he was barefoot and we were the same height.
Glenn said on 11/Apr/06
Yes,both more like 5-11.
