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.

Wow, he dropped a lot in height!

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.

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.

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
Wow. That would really be awful to be 6'4 younger and then through age be less than 6 foot.

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.

...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.

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.

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.
jervis said on 11/Oct/16
He looked 6ft3 with Rock Hudson.

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.

Rob recently he's been looking shorter than Tom hanks........ Perhaps a downgrade to 5'11 range is due soon for clint
Editor Rob: not really seen much to suggest Clint is obviously shorter than Tom.
PLB said on 20/Sep/16
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.
johnp said on 7/Sep/16
The Press photo for the movie Sully. Eastwood looks a little shorter than Tom Hanks who we think is
about 6 feet. Eastwood now under 6 foot for sure.
Jervis said on 7/Sep/16
Sorry his name was Tom Snyder.
Jervis said on 7/Sep/16
There are some good pics of Clint with Tom snydner who was a former tonight show host.The pics date from 1979 Clint would have been 49 years old,Snydner 43.Snydner is listed as 1m93cm but is the taller of the two.Clint looks a strong 6ft3 beside him,maybe 6ft3.5 tops.
jervis said on 3/Sep/16
In the 50s 60s and 70s,I think all of the stars inflated their heights a little and Clint was no different.
Rory said on 31/Aug/16
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.
Dmeyer said on 25/Aug/16
Does look 1cm on Hanks and 3cm in DiCaprio the Guy is still 6 ft
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Aug/16
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
James B said on 17/Aug/16
Rampage- so was Hugh Jackman
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/16
Eastwood was a naturally thin guy who bulked up.
Rory said on 14/Aug/16
@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.
NX said on 9/Aug/16
How the hell has he lost so much height?

Looking at this pic, Clint was clearly a 6'4 guy. Click Here

Also Ruddy and Clint are both the same age,but Ruddy looks to have lost no height,he looks to have 2 inches on Clint and Clint has lost almost 4 from peak.
jervis said on 3/Aug/16
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.

hasslehoff at 195 looks very slim. his normal weight is closer to 210 i bet. i'm 6 foot and 160 pounds with a lanky build and get told i'm too skinny often. i think i'd have to weigh around 180 before i stopped looking thin.

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?
James B said on 29/Jul/16
You could argue just 6'3.5 over 6'3.75 couldn't you rob?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft3 flat peak?
Editor Rob: not sure I'd try to argue that low.
jervis said on 25/Jul/16
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.
ly said on 21/Jul/16

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.

Lucky if he's a flat 5'11" today at 86 years old. Was between 6'3" and 6'4" before any height loss started to kick in in the early 1980's.

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.

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.
jervis said on 18/Jul/16
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.
Peter 179cm said on 18/Jul/16
Peak:190cm
Older Clint:180-181cm,he really struggles to look 6'0 most of the time.
Canson said on 18/Jul/16
@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.
Shredder said on 18/Jul/16
Seagal was 6'5 , Clint 6 ft 3
jervis said on 17/Jul/16
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.
Rusty 190cm said on 15/Jul/16
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.
jervis said on 13/Jul/16
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
movieguy said on 12/Jul/16
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.
jervis said on 9/Jul/16
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?
jervis said on 4/Jul/16
He looked 6ft2ish with Sutherland and co in space cowboys,but he could also look as low as 6ft1 in that movie with Tommy Lee Jones.
Rory said on 3/Jul/16
Yh I can understand him claiming 6'4, from 18 to 50 odd he would have been that range, and stated that as his height..he most probably only measured his height once in his life. When you get to 70 odd you might know you've shrunk, but can't be bothered to measure your height and so just go with your former height.
Canson said on 3/Jul/16
I'd say he was at least 191 in his peak tops would be 192 at his lowest which classes you 6'4 to the majority since ppl round so much

James, he might've been referring to his younger self. I don't know if he'd be that arrogant to claim 6ft4. To be fair, I think he was still 6ft2 range when he did Million Dollar Baby, by Gran Torino he was down to 6ft1 and 4-5 years ago I'd have said he was still over 6ft.

Maybe I was a bit unfair calling clint 'stupid'. I get the impression that clint has zero interest in height and is more into golfing and working out so maybe he was stating his measured height from when he was younger just sticks to that not realising about his height loss?

Rob do you think he would still claim 6ft4 for his height today? Remember this is a guy who talked to a chair lol.
James B said on 29/Jun/16
I personally think Eastwood was a bit stupid back in 2003 claiming he was "6'4" he is an intelligent man but that's not one of his sharpest moments is it? Look at him next to to Tim Robbins back then and 6'4 just makes no sense lol.

In 2003 I don't think clint was over 186cm?

...everyone's opinion is valid, and mine's just that; an opinion. But outdoor lighting, especially with the sun overhead, can play tricks on the eyes. I've seen guys from a distance, outdoors...say in a parking lot, and I think, "man...this guy is jacked". Then I'll be up close to him, like if it's at a grocery store, and he doesn't look nearly as muscular. This is my opinion on Eastwood in Heartbreak Ridge, the "Loose" and "Can" movies, and others. Muscular? Sure thing. But muscular, while at the same time skinnier than you'd think. Even with western coats on (Pale Rider) or a sport coat on (Dirty Harry)...which you would think would make his shoulders look much broader, he looks totally narrow, from top to bottom. 190 until Every Which Way (He's totally skinny in the Gauntlet), and more after that...for a decade or so. So Rob doesn't get mad at me for steering this off height, the guy who played the villain (name escapes me...Andrew something) in Dirty Harry is listed as 5'11. I can only find one photo of he and Eastwood together, and I don't even think it's actually in the movie, but I could be wrong. If 5'11 is true, it would give us an indication of Clint's height if there was a good shot of them standing together.
Anonymous1 said on 24/Jun/16
...I find Eastwood's build hard to define. I still say he's got an extremely narrow frame, including the shoulders. His muscularity is sometimes hard for me to define, because I believe his torso, shirtless, is kind of hourglass shaped. I'm not sure if I'm seeing pecs, or just the top of the hourglass. Sure, his arms were muscular in the Every Which Way films, but they looked, at times, way out of proportion to everything else...particularly his legs. Chuck Connors was roughly 6'6 (according to his own son) and, I believe, I read he was around 215. But as lanky as he was, my opinion was that his frame, particularly shoulders was large and sturdy...more so than Eastwood's. So how was a man, potentially 2 to 3 inches taller than Eastwood and with broader shoulders and who , to my knowledge, didn't work out with weights nearly as much, be the same weight as a 1988 Eastwood? No opinion here, just stuff for conversation.

...I'm sure there are a zillion weight rules to choose from. I grew up being aware of roughly 10 lbs for every inch of height (starting from what point, I have no idea). I would put Eastwood at 190, no more, up to and including The Gauntlet. After that, it varied. To keep it on topic, 6'4 "right" out of bed or after laying around for a nap, but more like 6'3 plus, peak.

You add 10 pounds for every inch over 6'0" and 5 pounds under 6'0".
Arch Stanton said on 23/Jun/16
The old quote Rob added I'm pretty sure it was originally mentioned somewhere as 216 pounds in 1973 too. Clint was supposed to have been 205 pounds during the Dollars trilogy. I doubt he was as low as 190 after his 20s.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Jun/16
Yes, you're right, he did look bigger in those films.
James B said on 23/Jun/16
Arch- have you seen how muscular clint looked in any which way you can and deadpool?

He was built like a bare in those particular movies
Arch Stanton said on 23/Jun/16
190 pounds is slender for 6'4 not really thatt "skinny". A guy like Hasslehoff is about that, he looks slender but not skinny. Under 180 at 6'4 would probably start to look skinny. Peter Crouch is around 6'8 and 170 pounds that's skinny!!

That's not skinny. Hardly built like a wrestler either but he was carrying more muscle than you think.

Obviously compared to somebody with a huge muscular frame like the Rock he was skinny, but still...

Look at him in High Plains Drifter Anonymous, he was in the bathtub in that. Decent muscle in the chest, shoulders and arms and reasonably broad, more than a typical skinny guy, but really quite slender overall.

...never said Eastwood would be 150, now. My general point was that, based on the 10 lbs per inch rule, the equivalent of a 6'4 / 190 lb man is a 6'0 / 150 lb man. Overall point being 190 is skinny for 6'4. At just over 6 foot myself, I once got down to 148 lbs. A photo of me, shirtless and taken outside, made me look super cut and muscular. In person, I was a twig. Beyond a twig. Photos (or film) don't always tell the tale. Apparently, Rob said the 216 lb weight was from 1988. That makes sense. He was a little older, and had trained heavily for everything from Every Which Way But Loose to Heartbreak Ridge. But I know I read 190 as his weight, at other times. And I disagree about his frame. Be it film, video or photograph, you always look a bit heavier. I marvel at how narrow Eastwood looks, particularly from the waist up, in most of his films.
James B said on 21/Jun/16
Arch- on the topic of clints weight this is why I think heavy weight lifting is more suited for taller folk such as clint Eastwood and Hugh Jackman etc.

I am 172cm range and 6 years ago I used to lift to stupidly heavy weights on the machines at the gym and got up to 174 pounds (without clothes in the morning) at my heaviest and it made me look really stumpy and overdeveloped. I now weigh 150 pounds and look better for it since it helps me look slimmer and taller.

It's a sad fact but tall people can carry loads of muscle and still pull of looking slim.
James B said on 21/Jun/16
It's 5 pounds for every inch of height.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Jun/16
He's around 6 ft today and not 150 pounds Anon, probably around 185 now.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Jun/16
Rob, perhaps you could put up the 1973 216 pounds quote here from the celebweights page? Anonymous I think he was about 205 in Dollars era. 215 in the 70s and more 220-5 in 78-90 era. Today probably 185-90 range I'd guess. He was never a skinny guy like Jimmy Stewart or James Coburn. Heavier framed than you think, but because he had long legs and slender frame I guessed it made him look thinner.
Editor Rob: it was 1988, but yeah I could slide it in.
Anonymous1 said on 19/Jun/16
...I realize this site is about heights, but weights go along with heights. To that end, I'm curious as to Eastwood's weight(s). I've read 190, and I've also read 215...which I would assume coincides with his more muscular build of '78 to '90, roughly. For arguments' sake, let's say he was 6'4 peak (and I still go with just under that, on any given day), and 190...say in 1977. I've read for every inch of height you add 10 pounds (and I could be 100% wrong on that). But if it's true and just for kicks, if Eastwood was a 6 footer and not 6'4, he'd have only been 150. I have no real point here, other than he is/was one skinny guy.

Yh but it's not like he lost 4 inches overnight in which case I'm sure you'd be pretty alarmed by it. It's a gradual loss over the last 40 years or so, which you don't really notice.
Anonymous1 said on 17/Jun/16
I wonder what Eastwood, himself, thinks about going from almost or equal to 6'4, and then down to 5'11 to 6'0. Nothing wrong with the latter, but that's a dramatic difference. The guy must be elusive, because it seems no one who posts here has ever run into him, recently in particular. Just watched Sudden Impact again, last night. Great Dirty Harry movie. Too bad he ended his run with Dead Pool, which I feel was far inferior.

i don't get why you guys are so shocked about his height loss. There's nothing abnormal in my opinion about a 6'3.75 guy ending up at 5'11.5 aged 86. Very tall people have longer spines hence they lose much more than the average man when they get to be very old and also lots of men who are very tall often don't live as long as clint.

It's hardly rocket science is it?

It's more than average loss, at his age you'd expect 2.5-3 inches but it's now 4 inches. 6'2.5 to his current height would be about average loss I think.

He's closer to 5'11" today, which makes it 5 inches in height loss from his peak.

Editor Rob: age is a big factor because he is quite active well into 80's...he might have lost an inch more than what you'd expect, but some people can really lose several inches by their mid 80's. The taller the more chance the loss could be greater than average.

Really Rob? You didn't mention that Clint has a form of scoliosis (curving spine) which definitely added to premature and above average height loss? He probably also has osteoperosis.
Editor Rob: I'm not sure he has any obvious twisting sideways to his body, but he certainly looks to have a fair amount of degeneration in lumbar and cervical discs.

I taught he was around 6ft 2 when I saw him in movies for the first time,when I found out that he was 6ft 4,I was a bit surprised.But when you compare him to other actors at the time he seemed to measure up to their heights.As I said before if he was 6ft 2 peak there are a lot of overinflated heights of actors heights out there.

How could that be? Is it because it is only the upper-body that has shrunken so his fingers still reach the level on his legs? I would his arms would still look relative to his waist. Generally, old men to have disproportionate arm length.

Because he seems like a very fit guy for 86,people find it hard to beloved that he had lost so much height.Also if he was 6ft2 or 6ft2.5 peak,it would mean a lot of downgrades for everybody else he is being compered too.But it's not impossible that there was height exaggerating in Hollywood during Clints heyday.Today it is more difficult for celebs to get away with lying about their height because of websites like celebhights.

Watched Pink Cadillac and Eastwood looked pretty beefed up in this particularly in the arms, guessing he was doing a fair bit of weight lifting at this point. If you watch his films you can notice his torso getting shorter over the years which I suppose isn't uncommon. Most of us will lose height as we age but it won't be widely noticed because we aren't movie stars. I don't agree with those who suggest he was 6'2'' peak I think the height given on this site is more accurate.

How is it possible to shrink 9 cm!?!

He's actually lost closer to 13cm. HOW? Easy. He's almost 90 years old and most men will have lost 3"+ by then naturally. NOW, Clint has suffered from scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and osteoporosis for years. My 91 year old grandmother used to be 5'2" and today is 4'10". Her mother was 5'11" and down to 5'5" by 90.

6-4 prime. I was just under 6' 8" in cowboy boots so he looks like a building in them with Sergio's camera angles on top of his prime height.

Dog the Bounty Hunter said he's 5'7" and in his custom made cowboy boots he reaches 5'10", so some cowboy boots can add as much as 3", but I suppose 2" is the standard norm?

You know my grandpa just visited me recently for an occasion and he saw my grand who he hasn't seen in over 30 years. They divorced by the way. Anyway I ask him how tall she was when she was younger and he said she was the same height. Also my mom says my grandma was a bit taller. Now she is about 166 cm at best late. My grandpa is about 173 cm standing at his best. My grandma claimed 175 when she was younger and my grandpa claimed 178 cm. Kind of strange huh? So Rob can you believe that? Both are just under 80 years old.
Editor Rob: some can lose different amounts...if you are a women, nearly 80 and 2-3 inches lost is very common. If you make it to that age with 1 inch you've done remarkably well based against the average. For a man, 1 inch lost by then is also excellent...if somebody offered me 80 and 5ft 7 I'd bite their hand off!

Watch him in films like Play Misty for Me, The Gauntlet and Magnum Force. I think it's pretty obvious he was near 6'4. Always looked inches taller than 6'1-6'2 guys. His legs and frame are typical of a 6'4 guy, just too lanky for just 6'2-6'3. If you watch Thunderball Rik Van Nutter had an almost identical build, he was 6'4. Him next to Connery in that film is exactly how Clint would have looked to a guy that height in his prime.

6'3 peak is too low, 6'3.5 is possible, but just 6'3 seems unlikely...he looked 6'3 to me in the 80s, but by then he was in his fifties and especially someone like him would have lost height. 6'3.75 peak is accurate.

An inch to inch and a half for Hudson over Eastwood in that photo. 6'5'' Hudson, Eastwood round about 6'4'' maybe just under.
Sam said on 17/May/16
jervis, are you talking about this shot? Click Here
I have a hard time seeing 2 inches between them there, you could say a strong inch advantage for Hudson though.
Arch Stanton said on 17/May/16
Out of bed, yeah something like 6'4.5. Looked between 3 and 4 inches taller than Soul.
jervis said on 17/May/16
6ft2.75 is the max in that movie James B.Sometimes looked no more than 6ft2.Did you check out that photo with Rock Hudson?,just google Susan Anton Clint Eastwood images it shows that Hudson is about 2 inches taller.There are more of thease photos on Bursaries images.There is also a photo of Susan Anton with David Soul that's entreating.
James B said on 16/May/16
Arch Stanton said on 13/May/16
I think he'd have measured 6 ft 4 in the morning peak. Near enough 6'4 to claim it, probably just under overall is the best shout. Down to 6'3 by late 80s.


Out of bed clint would have been 6'4.75 and by lunchtime down to a flat 6'4.

He made David soul look under 6'0.5 didn't he arch?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/16
6ft3-6ft3 at worst peak if not 6ft4. He was head and shoulders above almost everyone in Dirty Harry. A 6ft2 guy can't pull that off.
James B said on 14/May/16
Anyone else agree in line of fire clint was probably no taller than 6'2.75?
jervis said on 14/May/16
If you google Susan Anton Clint Eastwood,go into images,there is a photo of Clint and Rock Hudson there.If Hudson was 6ft5 Clint looks about 6ft3 beside him.
jervis said on 13/May/16
Gene Hackman was about the same height as Sean Connery in Bridge to Far.The lowest peak height I've heard for Connery is 6ft1.5.Clint had about 2 inches on Hackman.So if Clint was 6ft2 peak that would make Connery about 6ft flat peak and Hackman the same.Also if Clint was 6ft2 peak that would make Forest Whitaker 6ft flat because Clint had about 2inches on him.IMO Hackman was more 6ft1 peak,Whitaker 6ft1,Connery 6ft1.5.Making Clint 6ft3 not 6ft2.By the way if my memory serves me well,I'm sure Connery said he was 6ft1.5,back in 1985 on the Wogan show.

No this guy cleared 6ft3 comfortably and may very well have been 6ft4 on a good day in his prime
jervis said on 12/May/16
He was taller than ,Hackman who is listed as 6ft2 peak,by about 2 inches,taller than Lee Marvin by at least 2 inches but could look taller than that,Marvin is listed as 6ft1.5.Taller than Charlton Heston whos listed as 6ft2.5,by about 1.5 inches.6ft3 min

nah clint was a strong 6 2 in his prime and may have claimed 6'4 but never was, think ben Affleck
jervis said on 10/May/16
Yes Baron Choan thats the man who Clint would have been the same height as at his peak.
Arch Stanton said on 9/May/16
James, even Justin Timberlake is starting to look like Clint haha Click Here
I never used to get why people thought JT was good looking but he looks way better these days.
jervis said on 9/May/16
Rob,what is your opinion on Clint being 6ft4 morning height at his peak?.He could have been measured in the army at this height and didn't realize you shrink Durning the day,so when he was asked his height he just said 6ft4.It would explain his height loss and it wouldn't seem so extreme.

Saw Dirty harry again, last night, and I still say 6'3-ish (which can mean 6'4 out of bed). Regarding another poster's comment about him playing unlikable characters, it's the voice he uses in recent movies which irritates me. He's obviously doing it to create a character, but I can't stand it and that's not how he talks in real life. He did it in Heartbreak Ridge, but reverted back to his normal voice for a while after. I keep wanting him to clear his throat.



Yeah I noticed the change in voice too
jervis said on 6/May/16
I agree 6ft3,morning height 6ft4.Maybe he was measured 6ft4 in the morning and just went with that.
Will said on 5/May/16

I have no problem with Borsari images on my PC,it's a Pitt because there at some good pictures of Clint and other Celebs on it,Clint with Rock Hudson,Hudson clearly taller.
movieguy said on 3/May/16
Was going to check the Borsari images but there was a warning on google search that the site could be hacked. I'd advise caution until this gets sorted out.
James B said on 2/May/16
Clint looked on the slim side up until the late 1980s when he seemed to bulk up more (see him in deadpool and pink Cadillac). But he only seemed to maintain that bulky look for a brief time since in line of fire he looked quite frail.

I dunno why but in a lot of his movies for example line of fire and blood work (to name a few) maybe it's my interpretation but he seems to play characters that people dislike.
jervis said on 2/May/16
Google borsari images serch for clint eastwood there are a lot of thumbnail size pictures.There is a few of Clint with 6ft2.5 Sidney Poitire,zoom in and you will see at the time of that photo Clint was the taller man.
jervis said on 2/May/16
Because Clint has lost so much height it is hard to see him ever been even close to 6ft4 in his life,but just look at him next to Lee Marvin,Forest whitaker,Charlton Heston,Gean Hackman etc and you will see how tall he was.Strong 6ft3 min IMO.
jervis said on 1/May/16
There is one on Borsari images in the thumbnail images with Clint and Sidney Poitier in witch Clint is taller,just zoom in and you can see clearer.
James B said on 30/Apr/16
Rob am I the only one who finds it hard to believe that a peak clint would be slightly taller than Sacha baron Cohen?
Editor Rob: I'm sure some probably think of them as similar range
James B said on 30/Apr/16
I doubt neeson was a full 6'4.5 but 6'4.25 like Jeff goldblum maybe?
jervis said on 29/Apr/16
That's a very good example of Clints height loss Danimal 176 178.If you want to see more google Borsari images
jervis said on 29/Apr/16
Rob,did you have a look at Borsari images?There are a lot of good photos,there is one of Clint with Rock Hudson that's very good.
Editor Rob: yes I have looked at his site, it has a good archive of images, a shame some are in a kind of thumbnail/proof style.
jervis said on 28/Apr/16
Neeson said he was a bit over 6ft4,Clint was about 6ft3 at the time of the dead pool,there is a photo of him with Chevy Chase taking at around the same time and Chase is a bit taller than Clint.IMO Clint was 6ft3.5 peak and Neeson 6ft4.5.

Clint and Morgan Freeman in 1988: Click Here
Clint and Morgan in a recent pic: Click Here & Click Here

And 1988 was already a shrunken Clint who many believe was already down to 6'3".
Danimal176-178 said on 28/Apr/16
Rob, how do you have him at 6'0" today when Bradley Cooper is clearly taller than Clint today? He's MAX 5'11".
Editor Rob: I do have cooper at 184 range, but clint looking 5ft 11 and measuring it is another matter...it can be harder with elderly gentleman to know if they can still stretch up a bit more for measuring. Sometimes the curvature means they can't.
James B said on 27/Apr/16
If neeson was not over 6'4 peak then I'd say clint at times in deadpool looked 6'2.5 range.
jervis said on 23/Apr/16
There are lots of photos on Peter Borsari website,of Clint,Arnold,Heston,Peck,etc,if anyone is interested just google Peter Borsari
jervis said on 21/Apr/16
If you google Peter Brosari,search Clint Eastwood,under 037 ON there is a picture of Clint with Sidney Poitier where Clint is taller,as competed with the more recent ones that Poitier is taller,there are also lots of pictures of Clint with Forest Whitaker that show Clint was at least 2 inches taller.

I met him about a year and a half ago. I'm 6'2" and seemed to be 5'11" - 6'0."

I have hit the jackpot Peter Borsari if you want to see hundreds of Clint photos.
jervis said on 17/Apr/16
If you google Peter Borsari you can go to Clint Eastwood photos there are lots of photos by peter Bursaries.
jervis said on 15/Apr/16
I ment 6ft3
jervis said on 15/Apr/16
The photos with his son Kyle are from 93,and Clint looks the taller of the two,Kyle would have been 25 at the time,so I think you can rule out Kyle ever being 6ft4.The ones with Chase were from 89,Clint aged 59 Chase 46,Chase looks to have the edge over Clint.The Hudson one looks like it is at the same time of the one were there at the birthday party with Lee Marvin,John Wayne etc.Hudson looks taller than Clint by around 1.5 or 2 inches.Clint looks a strong 6from to me in those photos.
jervis said on 14/Apr/16
That's Brosire images.
jervis said on 14/Apr/16
Chevy chase seems to have the edge on Clint and there is also some good height comparisons between Clint and Mel Gibson. Google Brosier images Clint Eastwood,I have never seen these images before.

6ft3 flat is too low his peak.
Rory said on 4/Apr/16
Id say Clint up until '75 was 6'3.75...in the late 70s-6'3.5..early 80s-6'3.25...late 80s-6'2.75/6'3...early 90s- 6'2.5...late 90s- 6'2...early- '00s 6'1.5.. late '00s- 6'1...early '10s- 6'0.5...2016- 6'0. Hes lost height at a rapid rate over the last 30 yrs, losing perhaps an inch per decade.
James B said on 3/Apr/16
The rookie came out in 1990 rob.
5'11 Guy said on 30/Mar/16
What do you think how tall he was in 1980's,Rob??
Editor Rob: well if you go back to maybe some stuff like a couple of those Dirty Harry movies, he definitely looked a good inch or so less than Neeson, but then in the Rookie in early 90's still could look 6ft 3
James B said on 23/Mar/16
Rampage- I don't think he looks that similar to jackman at 5;23

My uncle actually looks much more similar to jackman except for his colouring (blue eyes and light hair)

We have Australian relatives apparently in my family so maybe Hugh is a relation? Lol
Rory said on 21/Mar/16
I think 6'3.5 is arguable, but i think 6'3.75 is nearer..dont forget Clint was a guy who stood with pretty labored posture and even so he looked like hed clear 6'3. Stood tall for a measurement and near 6'4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
Hmmm...when he had the 5 o'clock shadow I could see a little bit of a resemblance to Beckham. But other times uncannily like Jackman.

Click Here pause at 5:23, swear to God it looks like Jackman went back in time
James B said on 19/Mar/16
Rob is just 6'3.5 a possibility for clints peak?
Editor Rob: that mark you might argue, but I'm not sure I'd try to argue say just 6ft 3 for him.
James B said on 18/Mar/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
No Hugh Jackman resembles Clint the closest. Height-wise I think he could it pull off with bigger boots. Beckham doesn't look anything like Clint lol.


You cleary haven't looked at the Clint Eastwood 60s publicity photo on this height page have you? The squint, stubble and even hairstyle is uncanny To Beckham,

He looked 6ft1 beside 5ft11..5 Chris Waken.
Rory said on 14/Mar/16
I dnt get why people struggle to believe hes lost 3-4 inches..its not common but it is possible and would probably happen to one in three or four 80 something men. Some on here though talk about as if its biologically impossible which i dnt understand..id love to know what Clint could measure today though with strong posture. He stands at around 182 today, but itd be interesting to see what hed stretch to, could be as low as 6ft but equally it wouldn't be a massive surprise if he rose up to 6'1.
Parker said on 14/Mar/16
@Gary. He's 86 in May. What do you call an old old guy?
jervis said on 14/Mar/16
Gary what is old old after all he will be 86 in may?He could have been 6ft3 in his youth and now looks 6ft because of old man posture.
Gary said on 13/Mar/16
I doubt he lost that much inches, I think he's peak was 6ft3 and today he can't be lower than 6ft 1. So he is about 6ft1 now and only lost about 2 inches in height. He's an old guy, but not an old old guy.
Andrea said on 9/Mar/16
Rob, do you really think a young Clint would have been at least as tall as the 6'3.5 guy from the HC?
Editor Rob: yes I do think he would have been.
James B said on 5/Mar/16
David Beckham would be a better choice to play Eastwood because he looks more like him facially than Hugh Jackman but it would never work because of David's acting ability lol
mjkzero said on 2/Mar/16

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/16
Jackman could pull off the part. In the movie Australia he reminded me of Clint a lot facially.

My neighbor just turned 85, today. A couple months ago, he told me his doc said he'd lost an inch of height since his 20's. The guy is in phenomenal shape, but has had horrible posture since I met him, 39 years ago. I'm surprised he hasn't lost more height. Just food for thought. He's Eastwood's age, and though started out at 5'11, lost only an inch.
jervis said on 18/Feb/16
Had about 2 inches on Slim Pickins in Rawhide.
jervis said on 18/Feb/16
Copper is 6ft1ish Pitt is 5ft11 Clint is around 6ft even in bad posture,he is always in bad posture.Dont know what height he would be standing straight because he never does.
Johno said on 16/Feb/16
Bradley Cooper has over a bit over an inch on him and Cooper looks 6'0 himself.

He is also a bit over an inch taller then Brad Pitt thus he is between Cooper's and Pitt's height.

No doubt he was a very tall man when he was younger but he has lost alot of height and at his current age looks barely 5'11.

5'11/weak 5'11 at 85 years old
