Can't imagine him ever being 6'3 flat. People have already forgotten the clip with Muhammad Ali?

Ali was at least 6'2" and was surprised himself at how tall Eastwood was. 1 inch wouldn't do that, he was at least 6'3.5" in his prime. Early morning measurement gets you 6'4" or very close to it.

Easily 6 feet 4.5 at his peak
James B said on 23/Mar/17
6'3 is easier to imagine for a peak clint compared to 6'2 or 6'4.

Here is an interesting Clint Eastwood fact: If you watch him in the Man With No Name movies, he doesn't change his expression or his tone of voice at any time in any of those movies. No matter what the Man is doing, killing people or being beaten an abused himself, he seems only mildly interested in what is happening. In fact, being tall and having a large, handsome head is pretty much his whole act.

Jack Palance plays an expressionless, monotonic gunfighter in the movie Shane, but got an Academy Award nomination for it. How was that possible? Well, Palance actually seems like a vicious, soulless killer. He doesn't even have to speak and you still know that he is dangerous. He acts like a gunfighter, whereas Eastwood acts more like a mailman whom somebody had handed a pistol.

He would guess over 6'3" in his prime but I was shocked at how much height he's lost. I'm not sure he's even 6' now.
Canson said on 22/Mar/17
He was never 194cm. A peak Eastwood was 191/192 strong 6'3"
James B said on 21/Mar/17
Probably bulking up in the 80s contributed to his height loss back then much like Hugh Jackman and Dolph Lundgren.
Adijos said on 21/Mar/17
Peak: 6'4.25" (194 cm)
Now: 6' (183 cm)

He was definitely shorter than Rock Hudson in that clip, but not by that much. He seemed a similar towering figure and could seem about 6'6" in the Leone westerns with the hat, boots and low angle. I think at least around 6'4" through Escape from Alcatraz then he started losing height around age 50. I believe he was then a flat 6'3" by the Dead Pool through In the Line of Fire from 1988-1993, so not an usual height loss by age 63. He seemed to lose a bit more the second half of the 90's, but still seemed quite tall, much taller than currently. His huge height loss seemed to occur in his 70s.
James said on 20/Mar/17
Eastwood was 6'3" but he's 5'11" now.
James B said on 18/Mar/17
Arch probably 6'4.75 out of bed
TheBigR said on 18/Mar/17
@Rob how did he lose so many inches? Because of surgery or what?
Arch Stanton said on 18/Mar/17
I'm pretty sure Clint would have been measured at a legit 6'4 earlier in the day.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Mar/17
Clint to me looks between 1 and 1.5 inches taller than Heston, making Rob's listings of 6'2.5 and 6'3.75 spot on, assuming footwear is even. 6'3.5 peak is arguable but he consistently looked too tall with numerous people to have been 6'3 or under.
jervis said on 17/Mar/17
Yes James, maybe Heston had a bigger heel than Clint.
movieguy said on 17/Mar/17
Wow, looked at the Heston Eastwood Oscars clip. Brief but great to see them together. Not much difference in height I think. Eastwood a little taller as other posters have noted, don't think it's much more than an inch in difference though. Clint looks at least 6'3'' and maybe was the 6'4'' he claimed. I know guys who claim 6'4'' but I'd guess as slightly less, who knows maybe they are right and I'm wrong.
Sonny Black said on 16/Mar/17
I think his slim build always made him appear taller
James said on 16/Mar/17
It depends if they were wearing the same kind of shoes.
jervis said on 16/Mar/17
Thanks Tall in the saddle,I have to agree that Clint looks to have the edge on Heston,but by how much? its not clear.I would say its about 1 inch in Clints favour.Making Clint between 6ft3 and 4 depending on Hestons height.
James said on 15/Mar/17
Heston was 6'2" at that time.
mister_lennon said on 15/Mar/17
Clint was a strong 6'3. Charlton was a strong 6'2.

I think Clint created a complex in his teenage years. That made him adopt bad body postures to seem more "common."


I created a complex in my teen years that made me adopt 'upright posture' to seem more "tall" since I am only 5ft7
Arch Stanton said on 14/Mar/17
Form what I can see Heston at 6'2.5 and Eastwood 6'3.75 peaks look spot on, agree on Eastwood looking between 1 and 1.5 on Heston.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Mar/17
Yes, and in it Eastwood was clearly easily an inch taller from what I remember. A lot of people argue the full 6'3 for Heston too.
Tall In The Saddle said on 14/Mar/17
Jervis - thanks and I'd like to hear your opinion on the clip you pointed to.

I think first and foremost, all would agree that Clint's clearly taller but by how much? It's a fleeting moment together. I'd guess 1 to 1.5 " diff. in Eastwood's favor.

What say you Jervis?

At any rate, great clip of Eastwood lumbered with the task of reading lines of biblical proportions specifically written for Heston. Eastwood handled it with his typical cool and self deprecating sense of humor. Certainly enough to crack Burt Reynolds right up.
jervis said on 14/Mar/17
Clint and Heston met and shook hands on stage at the Oscars the year of that pic.I think you can view it on YouTube.

Click Here: Clint rarely shows his height potential because of his poor posture. In the picture of him with charlton it is possible that he is shown erect.

I'm with movieguy.

I'm not sure why photos like the one with Clint and Heston can be considered as reasonable evidence. Not head to toe and the angle from which it is taken invites deception via parallax error.

Earlier in the thread Arch Stanton provided a pic of Clint and Heston standing together at a function. Most recently, iosu_lasa provided a pic of Clint and Heston at the very same function more than likely standing in more or less the same position. The main differences between the two photos are the distance, height and angle from which they were taken. Same place, same time, more or less the same positions from the first to the second photo but somehow, in the second photo, Clint looks to have gained even more height advantage over Heston in the same moment of time - of course that's impossible. If the two photos prove anything concrete, they prove that such photos can be very deceiving depending on the vantage point from which they are taken.

For what it's worth, check the two recessed ceiling lights in the 2nd photo, one is on the left sort of above Clint's head and there is one on the right, roughly above Heston's head. I will of course assume those lights to be fixed at exactly the same height but they clearly do not appear to be at the same height in the photo. The light on the left appears higher than the light on the right. An illusion. Since Clint is at left in the photo it might then be reasonably assumed that Clint is gaining a measure of illusory advantage over Heston.

All in all, I would give Clint 1" to 1 1/2" advantage over Heston.
movieguy said on 12/Mar/17
That photo with Heston is clearly misleading. Clint was probably about an inch taller than Heston in reality. Not 3 inches like in that photo.
jervis said on 11/Mar/17
Heston must have been max 6ft2, or Clint was 6ft4 peak after all?
jervis said on 11/Mar/17
In that pic with Heston Clint looks 6ft4.5?
iosu_lasa said on 10/Mar/17
Click Here ... he was taller than charlton heston
Ly said on 10/Mar/17
Seeing his early films i noticed him being an ectomorph.
He had loose neck and back posture wich is typical for ectomorphs and made him look just 6ft3 but i believe almost 6ft4 is closer.
Tall In The Saddle said on 9/Mar/17
Thanks Jervis, I'll have a look see at that site.
iosu_lasa said on 9/Mar/17
clint and Chevy... very similar Click Here
jervis said on 9/Mar/17
Tall in the saddle,there is a very good site if you Google BORSARI IMAGES and type Clint Eastwood and search you will see lots of pics for height comparisons,there are a lot of thumb nail pics but if you zoom in you can see images very clearly.
Tall In The Saddle said on 8/Mar/17
Just to addend to my last post - I wanted to see more of the film NEVER SAY GOODBYE cited by iosu_lasa and found that one of my favorite actors George Sanders was also in it. Sanders was a good 6'3" and possibly 6'3 1/2" at best in my opinion. There a 12 minute or so trailer of the movie also avail. on YouTube and there is a scene in which Sanders (all be he older) is standing acceptably close to Hudson (though not a full length shot). Hudson is clearly taller but accepting Rock at 6'5", Sanders appears a good comparative 6'3" or so in my book. I don't wish to be too much of a naysayer or cynical but it's curious how well Clint measured up in that scene with Hudson. Anyway...
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
I can't speak to his height in his 80s but if he has really lost 3" wow! Prime is easily say he was a strong 6'3. Either 103/191 or 192.5/190.5
Tall In The Saddle said on 8/Mar/17
iosu_lasa - Just for it's own sake w/out getting into height that was an awesome clip! Thanks man.

For judging Clint's height it isn't too shabby either. Still, full length shots are best but so hard to come by. Problem for me is that rather than support Clint being between 6'3" - 6'4", he actually appears "too tall" if that makes any sense. For mine, Hudson was an easy 6'5" and as per the vision, Clint does appear virtually as "high" as Rock. Interesting. Also, toward the end of the clip Hudson stands still nicely near the brick work for a possible comparative height check against a static object. Unfortunately, when I went back on the clip when Clint enters the scene he is a little bit more in front and passes the same brick work a little too quickly but of course you can go frame by frame and still extrapolate a bit - Clint still seems to measure up to Rock well with reserve for usual possible hidden variables.
jervis said on 8/Mar/17
Yes he does look as tall as Hudson in that clip,and remember Hudson is on this site listed as 6ft5,but IMO he was more 6ft4.5.But there is also a pic of both men together and Hudson looks the taller by maybe 1 to 1.5 inches.
Blondie said on 8/Mar/17
Look at that pic: Click Here
I've compared "young Clint" with "old Clint". On the left he was 38 years old (on the set of "Hang'em High"). He was probably 6'4, maybe 6'3.5, but I really doubt he was shorter than 6'3.5. Today he's probably around 6 ft. (I guess 5'11). He's had some back problems and lost a huge amount of height. But he still has very long legs, which make him look disproportionate. By the way, I'm his great fan and hope he'll make much more excellent movies!
iosu_lasa said on 8/Mar/17
Clint and Rock Hudson (6ft4) were very similar in stature in "Never say goodbye" Click Here
mister_lennon said on 8/Mar/17
He was more than 1 inch taller than burt lancaster in the professionals.
heston was a strong 6'2 guy.
berta said on 8/Mar/17
i think the average guess seems pretty spot on. he look like somene who can be at best 6 foot now and when he was young he looked close to 192
mister_lennon said on 7/Mar/17
Marvin was 6'1. And stil 6'1 in lates 60s.
jervis said on 7/Mar/17
Marvin was only 6 years older than Clint,I dont think he would have lost any height at the age of 44.I have seen the Heston pic many times before,and yes if he was 6ft3 then Clint looks an easy 6ft4 in that pic.But the pic is only from the chest down,floor level and shoes can not be seen.Also Heston said himself he was 6ft2.
James said on 7/Mar/17
Marvin was no more than six foot by 1968.
James said on 6/Mar/17
Lee Marvin was only six foot. Charlton Heston was 6'2".
Tall In The Saddle said on 6/Mar/17
Jervis - Just to complicate it a bit I've also seen Presnell listed as high as 6'5". My gut tells me more like 6'4" or somewhere between that and 6'5" but I can't substantiate that.

Heston face up to rock solid 6'4" Price appears 6'2" maybe up to 6'2 1/2 " at absolute best. The pic of Eastwood and Heston is not ideal. Potentially deceptive angle, from chest up only, Eastwood looking up and Heston looking slightly down. Yes, Clint looks a bit taller (sans any illusory advantage from higher standing hair). Shoulder height is comparable. If Heston 6'2 1/2" then Eastwood might reasonably be pegged at 6'3.
James B said on 5/Mar/17
Marvin could have been 6'1.25 though
Arch Stanton said on 5/Mar/17
He had between 2 and 3 inches on Marvin in Paint Your Wagon!
Arch Stanton said on 5/Mar/17
You'll believe what you want to believe. What about Clint with Charlton Heston in 1972. Some people argue Heston was 6'3 himself, do you think Clint looks the same height? Click Here
jervis said on 4/Mar/17
@Tall In The Saddle,I have to agree with your point about Ali and Clint on the Frost show.I think this is clear proof that Clint was not 6ft4 peak and more 6ft3,in fact I would think there should be a downgrade in his height at peak to 6ft3.5 or even a flat 6ft3 peak.Rob what is your opinion on the Frost Show clip?,do you think Clint looks 6ft3.75 next to Ali?Also Presnell is listed as 6ft4 and is clearly the tallest of the three.
jervis said on 3/Mar/17
Ant,the clip of Clint with Marvin is on stage,and I would presume the ground was level.I caught a glimpse of Marvins footwear,he was wearing runners,the sole looked about 2 cm tick,even if Clint was wearing cowboy boots it would not allow for Clint only being 1 inch taller than Marvin at the time.As for Walcott,he looks slightly taller than Clint maybe half an inch.
Jervis said on 3/Mar/17
Well Ant,By the early 90s he had lost a bit of height,he would have been around 6ft2.5,but at peak 6ft3 to 6ft3.75,somewere in between that.
Tall In The Saddle said on 2/Mar/17
In my opinion, Ali and Eastwood's appearance on the Frost show provides the best frame of reference to estimate Clint's height. Unlike so many other examples of "comparison" offered, all things are actually very much visible and equal (postures, footwear, head to toe in frame, standing on the same flat surface, in close proximity to one another etc.). There is also the reasonably fixed value of Ali's height against which Clint's questioned height can be compared - Ali's height being a reliably judged 6' 2 1/2" at a minimum. Eastwood looks to be at least a safe 1/2" taller. There is also Ali's own up close and personal testimony that Clint is taller - I doubt Ali would afford that observation if he perceived Clint to be anything less than 1/2" taller. Could Clint wear lifts inside the shoe? Sure, but that is about the only possible hidden variable in this example. Otherwise, I see no better example than this to uphold Eastwood's height. As such I give Clint a safe 6'3".
James said on 2/Mar/17
William Holden was 5'10".
Ant said on 1/Mar/17
Well Jervis, looking at assorted photos of the names you mention Eastwood's height seems to be all over the place. Agree that in the Making of Paint Your Wagon footage he appears substantially taller than Marvin. However we don't get to see full body shots showing footwear and ground conditions. re Hackman at photos of a charity lunch in 1990 Eastwood has a comfortable Edge but at the Oscars in 1993 they mostly look the same height. On some photos with Walcott, Walcott is still taller while appearing to slouch. Putting it all together I'd still argue against 6'3 peak - maybe 6'2.5 out of bed peak tops. Tall dude then and still a tall dude now.
jervis said on 28/Feb/17
Sam,there are other pics of Clint with Holden and he look a easy 6ft3 next to him, even near 6ft4,depending if Holden was 5ft10.5 or 5ft11.The Newman ones are taken as to make Newman not look to short next to Clint.
Sam said on 28/Feb/17
@firecracker, in those photos Eastwood was bending his knees and leaning, not really irrefutable proof that he was 6'2"...He could still have been over 6'3" and dropping enough near Holden and Newman.
jervis said on 27/Feb/17
Ant,that guy John Smith looks more than 8cm taller than Fuller,if Fuller was 180cm Smith looks a least 4 maybe 5 inches taller.
jervis said on 27/Feb/17
So Clint was just half an inch taller than Lee Marvin? Just go on to youtube and look at THE MAKING OF PAINT YOUR WAGON,BEHIND THE SCENES,pause at 4 min and have a look and see,Clint looks an easy 6ft3 more like 6ft4 depending on Marvins height.Also if Hackman was 188cm and Clint was also 188cm? how come in every pic I have looked at with them both on line Clint is the taller of the two?George Kennedy and Greg Walcott both 6ft4,Clint looked similar in height to both.I dont know were your getting that Kennedy looked 1.5 inches taller, and maybe a little bit more than that, next to Clint.Max to me Kennedy edged Clint out by half an inch and know more.Clint Eastwood peak for me is still 6ft3 min,or max 6ft3.75 and I am sticking to that.Rob do you think there is any chance that Clint was as low as 6ft2 peak?
Editor Rob: I couldn't argue 6ft 2 peak...6ft 3 I think is the lowest I'd attempt to make an argument for.
mister_lennon said on 27/Feb/17
Lee marvin was 6'1. Clint was a strong 6'3.
Ant said on 26/Feb/17
In some photos 1.88m Whittaker seems to edge out Clint. Also with Marvin in Paint Your Wagon Marvin seems to slouch a lot and on Clint also looks to be standing on higher ground in some shots. On a photo of the two together at the People's Choice Awards Clint looks only slightly taller maybe half an inch or so. Re Fuller if you look at photos of him and his 1.88m listed Laramie costar John Smith - Smith even looks a bit taller than Eastwood by comparison.then when you look at Eastwood with the likes of Gene Hackman 1.88m, 1.83m John Larch and 1.79m listed Carmen Argenziano, 1.88m seems about right. re Kennedy in some scenes in The Eiger Sanction such as when he and Clint are meeting the other climbers he looks to edge out Clint by an inch or more and given his posture doesn't look great Kennedy could be taller still.
James said on 25/Feb/17
Lee Marvin was six foot.
jervis said on 25/Feb/17
If Clint was 6ft2 peak,then Lee Marvin was max 6ft flat ,more like 5ft11,and I am not convinced he was that low.Also it would mean George Kennedy was less than 6ft3,more 6ft2.75.It would also put Gene Hackman in the 6ft flat range,and that would put Sean Connery in the same 6ft flat range,which is very unlikely,and I could go on with more examples.2 inches off Clints listed peak is is too much,too me he always looked a strong 6ft3 guy.Also google Clint with 6ft2 Forest Whitaker and you will see that in 1986 Clint was taller,so unless Whitaker was not even 6ft1 Clint was definitely more than 6ft2 peak.
jervis said on 24/Feb/17
I saw that pic with Fuller,Clint looks about 4 inches taller,thats 10cm,making Clint 190cm,and if Clint was standing stright and not slouching he would be about 192cm maybe the full 193cm.
Ant said on 24/Feb/17
When you look at photos of young Eastwood (30s/early 40s) he looks around (188cm) alongside the likes of Richard Burton (177cm) and Robert Fuller (180cm). When you look at him with actor John Larch (183cm) in Play Misty for Me, he's slightly taller. Today I reckon maybe 183cm first thing in the morning and 182cm or 181cm in the evening. He seems to be in great shape for a guy pushing 87 - maybe the result of keeping fit and healthy eating all these years.
Tall In The Saddle said on 23/Feb/17
Intuitively I would've given Jim Garner 6'1" tops but I haven't made any serious comparisons. I just watched Forbidden Area with Vincent Price and Charlton Heston and one scene has them close together and face to face. Based on 6'4" for Price I would give Heston maybe 6'2" perhaps 6'2 1/2 at a stretch. I've seen the shots of Heston with Bush Jr (chest up) and all being equal, Heston appears to be the same height, which I guess maybe 5'11" for Bush (so 3" off peak for Heston from my POV). A full length shot would be better though to see Heston's posture etc.

If you haven't seen it already check out Christopher Lee as the focus subject on This is Your Life. The final guest is Vincent Price. These two guys stand nice and straight, close together and standard foot wear as far as I can see - there is a long shot and then one closer up. Both Lee and Price perfectly fit their respective 6'5" and 6'4" billings. Excellent yard sticks so to speak.
Jervis said on 21/Feb/17
Garner was between 6ft1 and 2 peak and was around 5ft10 to 11 when he died. Heston was 6ft2.5 peak and was around the same height as George Bush jr not long befor he died.
James said on 21/Feb/17
James Garner was never any more than 6'1".
jervis said on 20/Feb/17
James Garner lost a lot of height in old age,as did Charlton Heston.
Tall In The Saddle said on 19/Feb/17
Correct me if I'm wrong but save for the argument that he wasn't perhaps exactly 6'4" I don't think Eastwood's height was brought into question back in the day. Certainly, it seemed everyone accepted that Clint was in the 6'3" to 6'4" range - a very tall guy of proportionally limbs. No pointing to "lifts" or excessive heels etc because there simply wasn't and still isn't any real indication that Eastwood "cheated" or enhanced his height in any way. Check Eastwood's height at his peak relative to other celebrities, check and compare his foot wear - there is nothing suspiciously advantageous and it all adds up well for Eastwood.

I think Clint Peak height has ONLY NOW been questioned in more recent times due to the apparent height loss that has followed over the years. That has lead to retroactive address and judgment of Eastwood's previously unquestioned peak height. If you can't accept the height loss being due to natural aging/deterioration then you will default to the belief that peak Eastwood imply could not have been as tall as he appeared and as he was advertised - just because you can't believe a man could lose that much height.

The purported average height loss over a life time (1-3 inches) is just that, an average and there are still less common but completely possible extremes either side of that. And, after all, a person who hits a genuine 6'4" at peak has already well transcended the boundaries of the so called average in today's world, let alone Eastwood's adult world some 60 odd years ago (PS - just looked it up and the average male height in 1960 was just over 5'8").

I will admit that Eastwood's marked height loss has made me a bit skeptical but I have remained open minded. Important to note is that the height loss was not sudden but has been gradual (see Jervis' Rob Reiner example - and there are many other similar examples). The man is 87 yo and somehow I think that is not properly accounted for. Certainly, I don't think many of us view Clint Eastwood as we might our own grandfather of similar age. In all respects (including height) we hold them up to a different, less than realistic light.

In a previous post I put a genuine call out for a male celebrity/high profile person who has suffered similar height loss and one who we can reasonably say has lost that height through natural aging/deterioration.

By chance I saw a recent pic of Prince Phillip with Barack and Michelles Obama. Respectfully, I would say 94 yo Phillip now appears to be tiny without too much of pronounced slouch or the like - though there are some tell tale kinks in the posture. Like Clint, Phillip appears to have a truncated torso - at least from the front view and the side view might reveal more obvious spinal curvature. From the Obama pics I might guess Phillip to be barely 5'7" if that. Now this was a man who was listed as 6ft in his prime and that height can be well corroborated against the multitude of high profile people Phillip has met with over many years - including 6ft John F Kennedy (who Phillip appeared to edge) and 6 ft Gerald Ford (who Phillip appeared to equal) to name just two. IMO, this is a genuine height loss of at least 4" and perhaps up to 5".

Point being, I wouldn't deny Clint his peak height SIMPLY because one does not think a height loss of 4 " is possible. I think Prince Phillip is a sterling example that such a height loss (and them some) is very much possible.
Jervis said on 18/Feb/17
Google Clint Eastwood and Rob Reiner,there you will see Clint standing next to Reiner from a few years ago,in it Reiner is taller,but there is another pic of Reiner and Clint,Neil Jordan is also in it,I dont know when it was taken,it looks like early 90s,but in this one Clint is the taller of the two.lf Reiner was between 6ft1 and 2 that would make Clint 6ft3 in that photo and around 6ft.5 in the later pic.So in the 20 or so years between the two pics Clint lost about 2.5 inches.
jervis said on 18/Feb/17
Yes 6ft4 in the morning.Coburn looked 6ft1 range.
mister_lennon said on 18/Feb/17
Clint was a very strong 6'3 peak. Very close to 6'4. Maybe 6'4 out of bed.
Anonymous1 said on 17/Feb/17
As I've stated on others' pages, I stood face to face with James Coburn in 1983. I was 17, and 5'11.75. He edged me out, but no way by 2 inches. He was an inch, maybe an inch and a half taller than me, at the very most(I lean towards the inch, as he "just" edged me out). Eastwood was taller, but I still say more like 6'3 ish.
jervis said on 17/Feb/17
If you look at Clints posture he never had a hunch,what he did have and still does,and is what I think has led to his height loss is called SWAY,if you look at examples of this on line you will notice this type of posture in Clint in photos and during his long career.This type of posture will make you appear shorter,make you drop a couple of inches so as not too look to tall in the company of shorter people.In Clints youth like a lot of taller people ,he was IMO self conscious of his height and tried to hide it by slouching,and developed a habit of standing this way.His hight claim of 6ft4 could have been a morning measurement.Looking at him in his early movies and Rawhide compered to his costars listed heights ,he looks in the 6ft3 too 6ft4 range.With Coburn he looks a good 2 inches taller,so if Coburn was 6ft1.5 that would make Clint 6ft3.5 peak.
James said on 16/Feb/17
Eastwood was 6'3" at his peak. Now at 86 he is 5'11".
movieguy said on 16/Feb/17
Checked out the clip and have to agree Eastwood has a couple of inches on Coburn. Clint must have been close to 6'4'' as Coburn was tall.

I can't see any pronounced hunch for Eastwood - and more particularly not one that lends itself to a loss of up to 4 " in height. However, I do see perhaps a shortening of the torso over years. I wonder if it is possible to have the spine shorten without necessarily having a pronounced curvature.

Could anyone point me to online sources detailing Eastwood having issues with Osteoporosis, Scoliosis or the like? I haven't been able to find any.

Also, what other celebrities can we faithfully point to who have similar depreciation in height as Clint? Women's height generally depreciate more than that of men so best to go apples to apples and cite male examples.

I saw Ali lose height over the years but, IMO, Ali's posture wasn't perfect and there was a clear and progressive bowing of Muhammad's neck/head which justified the height loss. At peak, I think Ali was a true 6' 2 1/2" with the oft reported 6'3" being a mere round-up. The orig. tale of the tape for the Liston fight with Ali at age 22 indicated 6' 2 1/2" for Ali but this was later modified to 6'3" with all other attributes remaining the same.

Prior to fighting 6'6" Terrell, Ali's trainer Angelo Dundee talked Ali's height up to 6'4" and Angelo also stated that his "man" (Ali) was "still growing" to dilute the upcoming opponent's height advantage. By the time of the Terrell Ali was already 25 Yo so further growth was unlikely. It didn't matter. Ali fought "tall" and constantly bounced on his feet which exaggerated his height and so Terrell didn't appear to have the 3 1/2" pull that he actually held.

So, I think at the end of the day Ali lost a combined 1/2" by way of overstated height and about 2" by way of bowing of his neck/head.

This all wheels me back to the David Frost show. You can clearly see Eastwood's footwear both when sitting in his seat and when standing and the shoes appear standard with a standard heel. Clint does appear to have about 1/2" on Ali so I think 6'3" is reasonable "no lower than mark" if not right on the money when measured relative to Ali's 6' 2 1/2". There is another guest on the show - Harve Presnell - a Howard Keel style of man and performer. He is clearly taller than Clint and Ali by maybe 1 ". Harve himself kinda throws the cat among the pigeons so to speak because he has been listed at both 6'4" and 6'5". On the Frost show, Clint, Harve and Ali are reasonably close together when they leave their chairs, step down and stand on even ground to have their go on the speed bag - so it's a fair moment to make some reasonable estimates.

With a gun to my head I might put Presnell somewhere between 6'4" and 6'5" but not the full 6'5". Clint and Ali are certainly not dwarfed by him. Just based on the vision of the Frost show, with Ali locked in at 6'2 1/2", I would be perfectly comfortable to give Clint 6'3".

He still looked 6ft3 minimum in the 80's. About 1in below a prime Liam Neeson (6ft4¼-6ft4½) in The Deadpool and about 2in taller than Jim Carrey
Jervis said on 15/Feb/17
The rawhide episode with James Couburn in it is called Hostage child.lf you pause at 24.13 min you will see that Clint looks about 2 inches taller than Couburn. If Clint was as low as 6ft2 peak that would make Couburn 6ft flat max.Clint was a strong 6ft3 peak or maybe 6ft3.5 in his youth compered to Couburn.

Haven't seen many of his films but watched Dirty Harry ealrier. I thought he looked somewhere in the 6'3-6'3.5 range. I'm not seeing a 6'4/weak 6'4 prime.

I'm glad your eyes can tell the difference between 6'3.5" and 6'4" of a guy in a movie. There is NO WAY you can tell .5" onscreen, even when you're comparing him to people of known height.

He was still that height throughout the 1970's, not just the 1960's.

There is a rawhide episode with a young James Coburn in it,and Clint looks a good 2 inches taller.There is also another pic of Clint standing next to Holden, in it Clint looks 4.5 inches taller maybe 5?The Newman one is all about making Newman not to look to short next to Clint,because he was a bigger star at the time.

Most days of the week I see older men hunched right over in like a lower case "r" shape...and you can't possibly tell me those men haven't lost a hell of a lot if height. There's no law saying you can't lose X amount if height, I can believe people Losing 10 inches or more even in worst cases.

If I lost this much height I would be 5'6 when I am old.
Tall In The Saddle said on 12/Feb/17
I do find these discussions strangely compelling.

To the subject at hand - Mr Eastwood. I do find an apparently legit height loss of some 3-4 inches startling and unusual. On the flip side, watching his old movies/series, I found no reason to question Clint being at least 6'3" but probably not quite 6'4". Tall enough and relative proportions acceptably in place (e.g. long arms and still long to this day).

You see some shorter celebs on their "stilts" with other physical attributes static and it simply doesn't look right. At his advertised prime height (well corroborated next to other actors of reasonably recorded height) Clint looked the height and all else did look "right".

IMO, compared to the average guy, young Clint was more leg than torso for whatever that is worth. That torso appears to have shortened up that much more in his advancing years (or is it the simply the illusory effect of the "hitch 'em high" pants ethic of the older folk?).

I've seen the David Frost show in which Muhammad Ali is standing in reasonable proximity to Clint to make a height comparison - maybe 1/2 to 1 inch in Clint's favor. Also, Clint's footwear is clearly visible and his shoe heel appears normal. As someone already stated, even Ali gives Clint the nod in height without qualm.

Just musing but if Clint was to have worn lifts only to discard them in later years we might've have seen a sudden "trapdoor" loss in height - IMO, that has not been the case. Rather, we have seen a slow depreciation in Clint's height over a number of years. For example, apparently once taller than Morgan Freeman, then equal to Morgan, then a bit less than Morgan and then later notably shorter than Morgan. Hard to imagine that it was somehow a considerate and drawn out incremental reduction in "lift" elevation over a number of years.

I suppose looking at it another way, one might suggest that the combination of Clint losing maybe 2" in height naturally combined with a shedding of purported "lifts" might lend itself to the height loss we have seen. I dunno. Clint presents a bit of a conundrum and it would help a lot of we could point to any celeb(s) who have suffered a similar natural loss in height.

Finally, Rawhide saw many well known actors pass through to avail of us some decent comparisons. Just the other day I watched an episode title the Shambling Man with 72 yo Victor Mclaglen in his final role (he passed away just 30 days later). Clint appeared to have prob 1 inch on McLaglen who has been listed as 6'3" (as per both Hollywood and Boxing records). Even in older age, McLaglen appeared that height in the Quiet Man in the face of John Wayne. Photos of a younger McLaglen attest to that height even more strongly. But then, I suppose McLaglen wasn't necessarily wearing cowboy boots as Eastwood did. There is another Rawhide Episode with Buddy Ebsen and there is pretty much nothing to choose between Jed and Rowdy .

Again, I might suspect that Ebsen wasn't wearing cowboy boots given the role he played - a promoter for a travelling show - then again, maybe everyone had to wear those boots back in the day (walking 1" - 1.5" and riding 2" I believe). At any rate, Ebsen was at least 6'3" at best (I think he was prob a bit more than that).

Just an offbeat thing - my dear departed Dad said to me once that he noticed that the actor Dana Andrews had huge hands - Andrews made a fist in some movie (can't remember the name) and Dad said it looked huge. Damn. Every time I watched a movie with Dana Andrews thereafter I couldn't not check out his hands - and, unless I'm highly prone to suggestion, Dana did appear to have notably above average sized mitts - particularly compared with that of his male co-stars.
Arthur said on 12/Feb/17
Rob how old was Clint when he first started losing height? Also how tall do you think he could have been in the line of fire?
Editor Rob: I would say by mid 80's to 1990 range, he could have lost a fraction or a cm.
firecracker said on 12/Feb/17
one of the best actor, but his height was clearly overestimated. clint has never been taller than 6'2"(188cm) at his peak.

A young clint with director william holden:Click Here

holden, average size, was in the 5'9"-5'10" range and clint looks 4 inches taller than holden. Anyway he doesn't look a full 6'3". No way.

A young clint with paul newman:Click Here
Newman, another average sized man, was in the 5'9" range. Both have bad posture. Clint also has hair up. he doesn't look a full 6'3". No way.

Clint was a tall man of course, but he looked taller because he was very slim (in particular his legs), hair up, but this 6'4"-6'5"(193-195cm) listed for years, was clearly overestimated.

Clint has never been taller than 6'2"(188cm). Peak barefoot. For sure.

The early 90s was not Clints peak,he was in his early 60s by then and was about 6ft2.5 by that stage when you judge his height compared to others at that time.IMO Clint was a strong 6ft3 peak,6ft1.5 or 6ft2 does not add up if you compare him to other stars at his peak.By the way I have never heard of that rumour before about him being 6ft1.5 peak,if he was he must have had lifts in his shoes.But then again its Hollywood so anything is possible.

Even the early 80's wasn't his peak anymore. He was at his tallest until the late 1970's and then his spine began to curve. The last time he appeared to be at his peak was in 1979's Escape From Alcatraz. I haven't seen the 4 movies he made between that one and 1983's Sudden Impact, so I don't know when the height loss first began, but by Sudden Impact he no longer looked as tall as he did in Escape From Alcatraz. So, until around 48 years old (the age he was when he filmed Escape From Alcatraz, he still looked to be his peak height, or if anything, his height loss by then was so minimal that it wasn't noticeable. By the early 80's when he was starting his 50's the height lost became more and more noticeable. The last time he looked TALL was in the early 1990's imo (early 60's).

....I have to repeat, my 82 year old uncle was 6'2 young, and remains 6'2. He's had many health issues, despite being a lifelong jogger. So, there are exceptions to the rule (I'll update his height, at 90 :)

There's a lot of rumours /speculation that Clint was 6'1.5"ins tall in his hey day and at peak. I've had order relatives who were lucky to actually see him walking around when they visited Carmel. One was my Father and he is a solid 6'2" without shoes. Bearing in mind this was in the early 90's. My father and assorted relatives all judged him to be around the same height 6'1 -6'2. You couldn't just go up to him or ask for a selfie like to day. My Father said that he was around 10 feet way from him and did take some photos of him. Obviously from a distance. Apparently the locals and certain residents were very protective of him. You just didn't go up to Clint or bother him.

George Kennedy always looked a proper 6ft4 too me,he looked around max 1 inch taller than Clint,but maybe only .5 of an inch taller.If Clint was 6ft2 peak that would put Kennedy in the 6ft2.5 to 6ft3 range?I don't think so.There are plenty of photos of the younger Clint to prove he was not 6ft2 in his younger years more a strong 6ft3 guy IMO.If he was 6ft2 peak then Hackman,Marvin,Heston,Hudson, and many more need between need around 1 inch maybe a bit more reduced from thrir listed heights.

So my guess is 6 2 or 188 cm. peak.
Now he is 6 weak.

I think 6ft2 peak is too low,if he was 6ft2,George Kennedy a legit 6ft4 guy had about 1 inch max on him,so he could not have been 6ft2 because that would make Kennedy 6ft3.Also he had an easy 2 inches on Lee Marvin who was IMO 6ft1or maybe 6ft0.5 lowest.To me Clint always looked a solid 6ft3 guy always about an inch short of 6ft4 and an inch over 6ft2.He still looked 6 ft2 aged 70 at the time of space cowboys if you compare him to 6ft6.5 James Cromwell.Clint would have been an inch off peak by that stage.As for his current height,with his very loose posture yes he does look sub 6ft now,but I cant help but thinking if he pulled himself up to his full height,he could still be 6ft or maybe,dare I say it a little bit more?

I've looked again at images of Clint and Tim Robbins together. In some of them the height difference is not as noticeable as in the link posted below. Clint was obviously a tall man, the consensus on this site is that he just about scraped 6'4'' or was slightly under. I'd say this is likely correct.
Mr S said on 28/Dec/16
I always doubted the 192 cm peak listing but after seeing a clip of him on a chat show with Muhammad Ali circa 1970 I can believe it. Ali mentions that Eastwood is taller than him, also when they stand up it is obvious Eastwood is the taller man. If Ali was 6'2.5 peak then Eastwood had to be 6'3.5-6'4". I think Eastwood often gets guessed as shorter because he has always had bad posture. Today he could well be under 6 ft, seems a crazy amount to lose though.
Tim said on 28/Dec/16
Eastwood was 6'3.5" at his peak, and six foot today.
movieguy said on 26/Dec/16
Difficult to say Jervis, I'd probably guess Clint as slightly under 6'4''. Gregory Walcott was a bit taller plus I thought Donald Sutherland edged Clint in Kelly's Heroes. It's just when you look at those photos of Tim Robbins and Eastwood the height difference is very significant, not an inch or two but several. Maybe a young Clint wouldn't have been much shorter than Robbins he must have had really significant height loss though. Some claim Robbins is really 6'7'' or so which would perhaps explain things but then others dispute this and go with 6'5''.
jervis said on 23/Dec/16
So what height do you think his peak was movieguy?
movieguy said on 23/Dec/16
The photos of Tim Robbins dwarfing Clint make it hard to believe that they were supposedly similar height in their prime. I agree Clint looks to have lost height in his spine his trousers are nearly touching his chin lol. Even so it's very difficult to see how they could have similar prime heights. Women I understand can lose several inches in height through ageing but men usually lose just one or two at most.

Met Clint once also.. about a decade ago & I was looking at him eye to eye... both of wearing tennis shoes.. I don't think he could of lost 4" inches as most claim he has!!! Maybe, maybe a 1 inch or inch & a half.. 3/4 max, but that's just slouching from age. But if all of you who believe he's 6ft.. then tell him that in person & be ready to taste a quick fistful to your smug mug!!! Ya see, only little guys claim to be tall... like Will Smith Who CLAIMA he''s 6'1" Or 6'2" depending On Which Magazine has the interview. Seen him face to face at day show of a film with his wife Jada at Universal Studios years ago... & no way is he even 6' but more like 5'10"... maybe, maybe 5'11"... no way is he over that!!!!

Joey G said on 16/Dec/16
At least 5-7 inches taller than James Edwards and Lee J Cobb in Coogan's Bluff. Even with heels factored, they were 6' and 5'11" . Likely that he was a full 6'4" in his physical prime.
Joey G said on 16/Dec/16
in Coogan's Bluff there are some straight forward shots (side by side) off Clint Eastwood standing full camera next to Lee J Cobb as well as James Edwards. Both of these actors were above average in height; Lee J Cobb, 5' 11" and James Edwards 6'. He appears a head taller than both. Granted that he was wearing boots and the shoes on the other actors appeared to be standard heels. Without taking into account the possibility that either or both of them could be wearing lifts and deducting the extra couple of inches for added height of boot heels, there is no question that relative to the other actors, Eastwood stood at least 6'4" if their heights are correct.

Not its not. Old people tend to lose more height as they age because of disc compression. And people with multiple spinal fusion surgeries and hip/knee replacements are at a greater risk.

...another "who knows"; I saw, on Getty Images, Eastwood with James Coburn, from 1993. Camera angles and shoe hell thickness aside, my best guess from the image is that Eastwood overshadows Coburn by maybe an inch...inch and a half. I stood face to face with Coburn in '83, and he barely edged me out...if at all. I was 5'11 and 3'4ths at that, age 17. 10 years later he was certainly no taller. Based on these Getty photos...and maybe not on reality, but based on these photos...Eastwood, in 1993, was certainly a couple inches down from 6'4.
Rory said on 5/Dec/16
You can't guess his peak height based on how he looks now. There's no maximum limit on how much height you can lose in old age. 6'2.5 peak is nonsense. Even 6'3 is what I'd say is improbable.
Jervis said on 5/Dec/16
Looking at the recent photos of Tom Hanks with Obama,and the fact that Clint seems to be a similar height to Hanks,its hard to belive Clint was even 6ft1 peak because Obama looks a good 2 inches taller than Hanks,making Clint max 5ft11 now with a height loss of almost 5 inches.It would mean the young Clint would have been almost 3 inches taller than Obama.Its just too much height to lose IMO.6FT3 max peak for me but 6ft2.5 is not out of the question.As for all the height comparisons with co stars and others of Clint with these people,I would also question the accuracy of their heights too.I believe there was a lot of height inflation going on in Hollywood in Clints youth ,before and after and even today if they can get away with it.
Chris said on 28/Nov/16
Wow, he dropped a lot in height!
Vibram said on 28/Nov/16
Jervis, Hanks was never over 6ft, not even in his prime. Hanks has been nailed at 5ft11.5 / 182cm peak (1988); he's barely lost anything and looks the same at age 60. Seeing 86yo Clint the same height has Hanks proves Clint has fallen below 6ft in recent years. Clint was 6ft3 peak and 5ft11.25 today, thats my estimate. He's lost nearly 4 inches.
Rory said on 25/Nov/16
6ft3 flat seems unlikely to me, although not impossible. He could look that range when slouching, but in his twenties and standing tall I can't see him being below 6'3.5, with 6'3.75 likely.

Jervis said on 22/Nov/16
I have seen lots of recent pics of Hanks and Clint together,and they both look very similar in height,sometimes Hanks looks a bit taller than Clint and sometimes Clint looks a bit taller than Hanks.IMO Clint was more 6ft3 peak and is around 6ft flat now,I also think Hanks was about 6ft.05 peak and is around 6ft flat now.I belive Clint has lost about 3 inches off peak,not 4 because he was, IMO never 6ft4 in the first place.I would say his 6ft4 measurement was in the morning with Clint standing with military posture,but in the evening in normal posture he was 6ft3 and sometimes could look 6ft2ish
Vibram said on 21/Nov/16
Peak @ 30: 6ft3
Today @ 86: 5ft11.25 (he's shorter than 5ft11.5 Tom Hanks in his latest film, check out the scenes).

It must suck to lose 4 inches but my grandfather was the same and lost over 3 inches: 6ft0.5 prime, 5ft9 when he died at age 83. had a bad dowagers hump.
roy said on 18/Nov/16

jervis said on 13/Nov/16
In 92 aged 62 Clint had lost about an inch of peak,he was in the same height range as Morgan Freeman then,around 6ft2.05.Letterman was around 6ft1 IMO.I also saw that clip and did'nt notice any height differance between Mcmahon and Clint.

Letterman was at least 6'2" at his peak and claimed 6'2.5" in the morning when he was younger. NO WAY was he a flat 6'1" at his peak.
Anonymous1 said on 16/Nov/16
...according to an article about Eastwood, posted on an Eastwood site, he was cited as 190 during or soon after The Rookie. In another article, when he was in his early 70's, he mentioned being 205. This was in just a brief surf of the net. "If" he was 190 shortly after The Rookie...a movie where he certainly looked muscular, I don't see him as well over 200 at any other time in his tough guy movies. I could be wrong. Film is very deceiving. I have a photo of me from 15 years ago where I was out in the sun, looking ripped, cut and muscular. I was just over 145 (at 6 ft) and, in person, you could have sneezed and I'd have fallen over. But, in that photo, I looked pretty rugged. Photos..and film "can" be deceiving. To stay on topic, I still go with 6'3 ish, n general, in younger days, 6'4 out of bed.
jervis said on 16/Nov/16
He did slouch a lot but I would still say he was more 6ft3 than 6ft4,he looked it with Jim Davis in rawhide,also his co star in rawhide Eric Fleming is listed as 6ft3 and him and Clint look the same height.
Candyman said on 16/Nov/16
People forget he always wore cowboy boots which probably added an inch in comparison to people in regular shoes offset.
newbie said on 16/Nov/16
I find the obsession with downgrading the heights of genuinely tall men very odd. Eastwood may have been a guy who was just under 6'4 and called it 6'4 because that is a sensible rounding but he was no way less than 6'3.5 when you see people he was acting against and the comparison. Plus, in spite of one person on here mentioning it, no one has EVER seriously suggested the guy wore lifts and in his early films he's wearing the same boots as everyone else. It is way too many people to downgrade to get him to 6'2 or less as some want to claim. Also the guy slouched in a way that underplayed his height, hardly the actions of a man trying to con people into believing he was taller than he was. He has definitely lost a lot of height over the years but you can see the change in pictures of him. If you compare his body in younger days to today he had a much longer torso in his younger days and that has noticeably changed as he's got older.

As for the weight debate, I could buy 215 easily for a guy in the 6'3-6'4 range looking the size he did, if anything in his bulked up phase I'd be surprised if he wasn't a bit more.
jervis said on 16/Nov/16
Just seen him in an episode of Rawhide with 6ft2.5 listed Jim Davis,there is a lot of scenes with both actors together,it is hard to tell or see Clint being the taller of the two,both men look the same height.I have seen 6ft3 listings for Davis and Clint my be dropping a fraction of height by slouching,both men look very similar in height.So max peak height for me is 6ft3 inches and no more.
Ian C. said on 14/Nov/16
Interesting, Rob, that you would invite your readers to guess the heights of celebrities. That is really being democratic, since you're an expert and we're not. My own method of guessing heights is to look at body shape, with particular attention to the relative size of the subject's head. I figure that a man with body that seems large in proportion to his body is probably short. Another prejudice I rely on is that a man who can move quickly is more likely to be short than tall. Tom Cruise and Steve McQueen and Yul Brynner get put in my short column, because they are so quick. Liam Neeson and Clint Eastwood must be tall, because they seem clumsy and slow.
Editor Rob: Ian, visitors have been guessing heights for 12 years, it's just now there is an addition of a tally/average which makes it easier to see what an overall opinion might be.

ectomorphic frame rob?
Anonymous1 said on 10/Nov/16
...just saw him on an old Tonight Show with Carson, dated 1992. Letterman was also on. He was a little shorter than Ed Mcmahon, though slouching. He was definitely taller than Letterman, but was letterman the full 6'2 I've read? He looked 2 inches taller than Letterman. But if Letterman really was 6'2, that would make Eastwood 6'4 in '92. Then that would make Ed M. roughly 6'5 and 1/2, and I've never heard such a height being attributed to him. I have no idea what to make of this Tonight Show appearance.
James B said on 7/Nov/16
Rob do you think years of heavy weightlifting could have contributed to his height loss?
Editor Rob: James, I think he has a frame which meant it took him a lot of effort to add a fair bit of muscle.

absolute no steroids or hormones for Clint.

yes, I think it might have effected him a bit, but some men are just more prone to loss, it can be hereditary...
Arch Stanton said on 7/Nov/16
@Jervis younger not older but yes. If you saw Matthew Kelly in the 90s he looked every bit of 6'5, in fact could look 6'6 at times. I saw him on a quiz show not long ago and the loss is really substantial, he's honest, he looks about 6'2'5 now. So it can happen.
jervis said on 7/Nov/16
I ment younger.
jervis said on 7/Nov/16
I have just read Matthew Kelly has gone from 6ft5 to 6ft2.05 and he is 20 years older than Clint,so not just Clint.
Sandy Cowell said on 6/Nov/16
I cannot believe my eyes! He's only 6ft now! I always thought of him as 6ft4! Obviously, I'd expected him to be a bit shorter now but 4 inches is surely above average on the shrinkage front?
jervis said on 5/Nov/16
I think 6ft4 was a morning mesurement,he more 6ft3 at the end of the day,along with bad posture and slouching he could look as low as 6ft2 at times.He mainly only wore heels in westrens but so did everybody else.
Rory said on 3/Nov/16
The 2000s were a punishing decade for Clint in terms of height loss. In 2000 he looked still a decent 6ft2 aged 70, by 2010 though he looked 6'0.25-0.5.
jervis said on 2/Nov/16
He is 86 and was around John Cusacks height about 10 years ago,if you look at pics of them together. In Clints case looking almost as tall as George Kennedy,taller than Charlton Heston Lee Marvin,Hackman etc he was clearly no less than 6ft3 peak.
Puma said on 30/Oct/16
Rob, did he lost 9 cm?Is it so much for 85 years old, isn't it?
Editor Rob: the taller, the greater chance of more loss compared to average. I think near 4 inches is like 3-3.5 inches for a 5ft 9 range man, so it is a fair amount comparatively speaking.
Ren said on 29/Oct/16
Rob, is Clint looks same height as you unlikely where he looks no taller than Matt Damon where, Damon is same height as 5'7.5 Corden. I bet Clint is 5'5 due to height shrinkage or without lifts. Can you Explain me please If you way shorter than Clint now.
jervis said on 23/Oct/16
After 30 votes it looks like 6ft3.75 peak and 6ft present day are more or less agreed.

I suppose the best estimates come from people who have seen the celebrity's in person. However for most of us this is likely to be pretty rare. Would we have been astonished to see how big Clint actually was in his prime or would we come away thinking he wasn't as tall as we thought. The comments I like are the ones where the poster says they were surprised to see how tall so and so was but these are the exception. Mostly when celebrities are spotted there seems to be a mild disappointment expressed as to the famous actor or whatever being much smaller in real life than they look on the screen.

Over the years some people have mentioned meeting him, some seem fake, but some have seemed genuine like the "bumped into him in a coffee ship in Monterrey in 1978" etc. And most people confirm that he looked very tall in person. he wouldn't have got the reaction that Stallone and Van Damme get when people realize they're not 6'4!

I read up how spinal fracture could do the height shrinkage of 4" commonly for old people. There is some case of young folks at the age of 20s-30s had suffer spinal fracture losing 2.5-3.5" max of height and could imagine when they get older like clint eastwood might reach the max shrink to 4". Conclusion that clint eastwood might have suffer spinal fracture since his age of late 40s-50s losing this much at 3.75"

Perhaps clints height loss is not as uncommon as we think.

People who are knowledgeable on height loss and the reasons behind it know that it is not uncommon. Many people have lost significant height. Clint, Louis Gossett Jr., Big Show, Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Arnold, and many many more.

Editor Rob:
Thanks, the site is now exactly 12 years old.

A shame I didn't have it earlier, but then, nothing is ever too late.

Personally, I think it will be interesting over time to see what figure user-contributed averages settle towards.

Will a guy like Cruise end up under 5ft 7, over 5ft 7?
Will Bieber hit 5ft 8 etc...

Who knows!

If you are a longer term visitor, I know many will have commented on hundreds of pages and feel there's nothing more to add...but I hope some will slowly add their guesses to the site...

There's no rush though, if you added 5 guesses a day, it would take you 5 years to have guessed on every entry in the database!

Will the MEAN average of your posters influence your ultimate decision Rob to either lower or raise some people's heights? I think it should if the consensus is overwhelming. What do you think?
Editor Rob: over time I hope it helps me identify listings which are further from my estimate and I can look more closely at them.

I may not always agree with a consensus though...sometimes it can be influenced even by a photo I have.

All I ask is honesty in voting to help the site :)

I'm completely impartial to the votes in that you can guess however you like...the only issue is if somebody was submitting every celeb as 2 inches taller or shorter, maybe that's not so genuine.

Clint Eastwood is 6'4". He was when he became a star and he will always be that height as far as I'm concerned. I was 6'4" from about an age of 24 to my accident at age 64. I fell off a cliff at the beach. I couldn't walk for about a year. But I'm better now. I'm shorter but I simply don't measure myself anymore. I tell people I'm six four because that's my self image. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
jervis said on 8/Sep/16
I would say Clint and Hanks are more or less even in height,around 6ft even,maybe a little less?Clint always looked a strong 6ft3 Peak IMO. Just look at the pics with 6ft4 listed Tom Snyder,you are looking at a peak Clint with a guy of 6ft4.
Jervis said on 8/Sep/16
It was the tomorrow show Snyder presented not the tonight show.

In the 50s 60s and 70s,I think all of the stars inflated their heights a little and Clint was no different.

No I'm sorry I'm not having 6'3 flat for this guy. In the deadpool aged 58 he looked a decent 6'3 still next to Liam Neeson(6'4.25)and I'm convinced he'd have lost height by then, probably half an inch. 6'3.5-75 peak. I'd challenge anyone really to find good examples of 50s/60s/70s Clint looking 6'3 flat, and no, comparing him to 6ft listed Santoni who no one rly has any idea how tall that guy really is is not a good example.
jervis said on 29/Aug/16
I agree with you berta,6ft3 is more like his peak,6ft4 morning height.looked 6ft3 right up to 60,6ft1.75 by 70,6ft.75 by 80,now 6ft at 86.
berta said on 29/Aug/16
my grandmother is 91 soon 92 and she was 172 peak and now a Little under 167. so she has lost Little over 5 cm Clint have lost 10 cm!!! maybe he was only 190-91 peak? i can actually see him and the rock about the same height peak. Both measured Close to 6'4 in the morning and was 6'3 evening and said they were 193 nothing wrong with that they just Went with morning height i guess.

Agreed, James. Jackman is was a relatively thin guy before X-Men. That's why he could pass for 6ft3 at times when he was younger

@Greg, Yh but how can you rely on IMDB ? He's listed 6ft but that means absolutely nothing. It's very inconsistent when people scrutinise clints height, but then happily just accept any old listing for other people as being correct, he might well have been 6'1 range Santoni.
jervis said on 14/Aug/16
Santoni look taller with Clint than Lee Marvin,and Marvin is listed as 6ft1.5.So if Santoni was 6ft flat that would put Marvin in the 5ft11.5 range.If Clint was 6ft2 range aged 40 it would mean he lost little or no height up until his 70s.
jervis said on 13/Aug/16
Reni Santonis height has been listed as tall as 6ft3 and also I have seen 6ft1 listings for him too.Clint was 6ft3.5 peak and Santoni was between 6ft1 and 6ft2 IMO. If Santoni was 6ft,Clint was 6ft2 max.
jervis said on 12/Aug/16
86 it was his birthday on may the 30th.
Greg said on 12/Aug/16
In Dirty Harry he was about 40 or 41 years old and I'm not seeing 4 inches difference between Reni Santoni (Chico) who's listed at 6' on IMDB and Eastwood, there's maybe 2 inches. I would guess he was probably closer to 6'3" peak
movieguy said on 11/Aug/16
People ask why Clint has lost so much height but he is pretty old. He's 85 years of age. I see him as weak 6'4'' guy prime who has gradually lost height over time. Height loss really kicked in his 70s. Struggles to hit 6ft these days. Maybe some guys keep their stature better with age though, a 4 inch height loss seems a lot for a man although probably not unusual in a woman. I've seen his son Kyle and his band perform live and he looks more like Clint in person than in photos, very similar build tall and lean.

There is a photo of Clint with producer Al Ruddy from 1973 where Clint is the taller than the two, by a good two inches.But in the more recent photos its the other way around.But in the older photo footwear and ground level cant be seen.james Brolin is also in the photo from 73.

Yes, Hoff looks very trim at 191 pounds. In an earlier series of Baywatch he was carrying a lot more weight, in fact I thought he looked nearer 220 pounds in one of the earlier series. You'll remember that he used to suck his stomach in a lot. I don't think he's a guy who is naturally slim, his daughters are big. I think he has to work very hard to maintain it.
jervis said on 30/Jul/16
Jeff Bridges looked 6ft2 with him in Tunderbolt and Lightfoot,but Tim Robbins made him look 6ft max in Arlington Road.Bridges was only 50 at he time so I d'ont think he would have lost any height.Clint at 6ft3.75 peak and Robbins at 6ft4.75 seems odd?

You could argue just 6'3.5 over 6'3.75 couldn't you rob?

I think he was 6ft4 at morning in his youth,standing with perfect posture.Thats where he got his 6ft4 from.
James B said on 25/Jul/16
Perhaps clints height loss is not as uncommon as we think.

For example Vanessa Redgrave at 5'11 was the equivalent of a 6ft4 man and now at 79 she is 5'7-5'8 range.
Rory said on 24/Jul/16
Another poster said it before Clint was almost certainly somewhere between 6'3.25-6'3.75 in his youth. Anywhere taller or shorter than that range seems unlikely..for example he edged out James Brolin who by General consensus was a decent 6'3. Personally I think Clint was a guy who when measured would hit 6'3.75, but due to rather lax posture he'd often appear more 6'3.25-5.
jervis said on 23/Jul/16
If he was 6ft2.05,then Rock Hudson was max 6ft4 or 6ft3.05.
jervis said on 23/Jul/16
Watch rawhide if you can.He always slouched even back in the fifties,never had good posture.In his youth he seemed to be uncomfortable with his height and never stood with perfect posture,and seems to have continued this habit in later life to.I
jervis said on 23/Jul/16
I think 6ft2.05 for his peak is only if his costars like Lee Marvin,George Kennedy etc were 6ft flat for Marvin and 6ft3 flat for Kennedy peak,if they were, then yes 6ft2.05 peak was his height.
jervis said on 23/Jul/16
Sorry thats never say goodbye,send me no flowers is Clint Walker.
jervis said on 23/Jul/16
If you have not seen the clip of the young Clint from the movie send me no flowers,he is in a scene with Rock Hudson and looks a least 6ft3.05 maybe even the full 6ft4.
Fratjimmy96 said on 22/Jul/16
I've never really bought the fact that Clint was 6'4. I think he began to lose height when he was 60..yes, he never had a good posture, but in "In the line of fire" he looked a weak 6'3 in shoes against Dylan McDermott, who looked a legit six footer, so in my opinion he was in his prime a good 6'2.5 (189cm) max and in his late 50's and early 60's he began his big slouch. Certainly, he has even nowadays a really bad posture...against 6'4.5 Armie Hammer and 5'11.75 Leonardo DiCaprio, he looks barely 6'1 in shoes, so he must be a solid 6' (183.5 cm) barefoot now max.
jervis said on 22/Jul/16
You could be right Rory,maybe he could have been 6ft3.05 with perfect posture at the time,he did look a strong 2 inches taller than Lee Marvin.

This pic with at least 6ft4 george kennedy proves that clint at the least this height.
Rory said on 21/Jul/16
Imo he looked a solid inch taller than Van Cleef so probably 1.25 inches taller, but I don't think his posture was quite as good as Van Cleefs either, so if both men were measured barefoot I'd guess Eastwood would be 1.5 inches taller.
jervis said on 21/Jul/16
IMO he was 6ft4 in normal 1 inch shoes.Looked only 1 inch taller than Van Cleef,but could look 3 taller than Marvin,but that was more down to Marvin not been 6ft2 and more weak 6ft1.For a fit guy like Clint I dont get how he has lost so much height.

According to bmi 160 at 6ft is the healthiest weight since it's bang in the middle of the healthy weight bar so maybe it's not so bad. But if you want to put on weight in muscle simply go to the gym.



And yet wut is right James B. At 6ft around 180 pounds is when you stop looking skinny. Im not even a full inch taller and around 185 pounds I was still thin.

Around 200 pounds is perfect for me but i go as high as 210 pounds in the winter with water weight.

Kid, we've been over this many times. BMI does not take into account bone structure or muscle mass. 6'0" at 160 is THIN.

Seagal looked 6'6 range in a photo with my 6'1 ( yes , it's his real height) cousin. I was shocked he looked this tall and I even asked if something was off with the pic , like footwear or if he had a higher ground , my cousin told me they were both on even ground but Seagal was in cowboy boots. My cousin actually guessed him at 6'6 , 6'7 ( what he thought he appeared with the footwear). a 6'5 guy in cowboy boots looking 6'6 makes since. 6'4.5 minimum.

I think Seagal was closer to 6ft5 than 6ft4,looked a good 3 inches taller than a 65 yearold Clint on google images face to face.

Peak:190cm
Older Clint:180-181cm,he really struggles to look 6'0 most of the time.

@Shredder: I doubt Seagal was ever 6'5. I remember one movie they showed his license and he had 6'5 but likely in shoes. But won't doubt maybe 6'4 in his prime and Eastwood at least 6'3.

Seagal was 6'5 , Clint 6 ft 3

Just watched 0ut for justice,in it Segal looks much taller than Clint ever did in his movies.If i did not know Segals height I would have taught he was 6ft6,but maybe thats what a real 6ft4 looks like.

I think 6'3.5" is likely what his peak was and he rounded up to 6'4". I think anywhere from 6'3.25" to 6'3.75" peak is arguable.

IMO Sutherland an Clint where 6ft3.05 for Sutherland and 6ft3.025 for Clint.By Space cowboys Sutherland aged 65 6ft3 and Clint aged 70 6ft1.05.Height loss from peak 1.075 inches for Clint and .05 height loss for Sutherland.At 65 Clint would have been 6ft2

Definitely lost height compared to Donald Sutherland. In Space Cowboys looked a few inches shorter. I think Sutherland edged him Kelly's Heroes but difficult to be sure and some put Clint as looking taller in this film. Sutherland has really filled out with time whereas Clint still has the same lean frame he had as a young man albeit a little shorter.

If he was 6ft flat or max 6ft1 peak ,everybody else he acted and was photographed with were also lying about their heights,or he wore lifts and big heeled boots or shoes all the time.
jervis said on 7/Jul/16
Above it says he is 6ft3 and 216 pounds in 1988. I wonder where they got that height listing from.
Normal. Tall guy said on 6/Jul/16
I doubt clint was any taller than 6 ft maybe 6'1 in his prime bcoz if he was ever 6"4 and wearing cowboy boots and cowboy hat he"d look ridiculous at 7foot n would be ducking to go through a doorway its simply just another hollywood lie
jervis said on 5/Jul/16
In space cowboys he seemed only slightly shorter than Sutherland ,except for the scene were there all naked where there barefoot Sutherland looks about 2 inches taller?Maybe Clint had a little bit of help in the shoes?
