I think Lazenby was speaking of his "in shoe" height (and doesn't class it as a difference) when he states his height as 6-2... because I'm not sure he's even as tall as his 1, 83m tennis-playing wife Pam Shriver... I mean without those walking shoes he'd clearly be even shorter... Click Here
..... has he lost 4.5cm , 5cm or more by age 69 (when these pictures with Pam were taken?) ... I'm not so sure...

I agree he looks stand out tall in his Bond outing, but if he was a legit 6'2 it seems very strange that he'd say Connery who was max 6'2.25 was taller than him, who'd really notice or remark upon a quarter inch difference ? It's also strange that a 67 year old would lose two inches in height, obviously it's not impossible but I'd imagine a normal loss aged 67 would be about 0.75 inches and he looks well in his pic with Rob he doesn't look unfit or w,e..I dunno I think 6'1.5 peak is possible it'd explain both those anomalies.
Editor Rob: like Dalton he may well have fell into the 187 range almost 6ft 2.

Seems to have lost more height now, or peak height was exagerated for wax work Click Here
Editor Rob: I think they probably went with his peak height for the model.

I thought he could look 6'2 peak but im now having doubts..the guy was 67 here, rob says he looked 5'11.75-6 ft in person and stood with good posture, with that in mind I cant see how he would have lost more than a good inch, a normal amount for a 67 year old would be 0.75-1 inch loss, baring in mind he's tall maybe a bit more, so id say a 1.25 inch loss is possible..which puts him at a strong 6'1 peak..the fact he admits Connery was taller than him supports this too, Connery was 6'2.25 Imo, and if this guy was a legit 6'2 would he rly say that ? Would he even notice Connery was taller ? I wouldn't have thought so..Lazenby being 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 is more logical Imo.
Judd ISR said on 14/Oct/15
When he played JB in 1969 of course he could have passed for a 6'2" guy but IMO he never been a strong 6'2"...I think he was 6'1.25-1.5"...
With Rob he's a strong 6'!
Andrea said on 26/Mar/15
No, he doesn't, Connor! He looks pretty near 6' in this picture, don't know what you see at times...
184.3cm said on 26/Mar/15
Thats a good list Mike.
Looks bang on 6'0 next to Rob.
Connor6'0 said on 25/Mar/15
6'0 Rob? He looks more like 5'11 with you, possibly 5'11.25.
said on 25/Oct/14
I think if you were to round up all of the bond actors except Craig (sorry Daniel!) in their prime and stand them in a line there wouldn't really be that big a difference in height.
I mean check this out Click Here

Lebensdorf said on 4/Oct/14
He looked like a 6'3 guy in OHMSS in some scenes. I remember reading that Bond tailors gave his height as 6'1.5. In any event, he never looked less than 6'2. He had a very elegant shape. Perfect body. Long legs, broad shoulders, etc.
grizz said on 20/Jul/14
@182cm , that listing seems legit to me, I kinda wonder how Rob missed this site.
I think Lazenby seems taller than 183 on Rob's photo, he's closer to 185-186 cm.

What is his personality like?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/13
He was 6ft2. So was Dalton. Connery was just over 6ft2 (measured 6ft2.4)
Brosnan and Moore were just below 6ft2
Sam said on 1/Jul/13
Next to Ben Gazarra in Saint Jack, he certainly looked no less than 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jun/13
He looked 6"2" as a young man. I must say OHMSS wasn't as dreadful as people make it out to be. I mean he had the potential. It was his attitude problems on set that ended his run.
jake said on 5/Sep/11
6ft1.75 peak and 6ft0.25 now.
Shaun said on 5/Aug/11
His high hairline does make him look close to 6'1" but 6' looks right on the money. He's 70 odd now so surely has lost an inch or two.
Shaun said on 5/Aug/11
He definitely looked a legit 6'2" as James Bond. In fact there are some scenes when he could look close to 6'3". One scene he walks into the casino and looks 6'2.5"-6'3" range.
Lenad is sexy said on 19/Jun/11
looks solid 4 inches taller than Rob. The top of Robs head is roughly level with Georges eyes
avi said on 16/Mar/11
Solid 6'0-6'0 1/2 may have been a hair under 6'2 up until he was 60. that means his wife Pam Shriver (tennis player) isnt more than 5'10-5'11ish. Not the 6'0-6'2 claims.
said on 19/Jan/11
Does he look "clearly over 6' now??? Rob is correct with this.
Ian Fawn-Meade said on 16/Dec/10
I know George, and worked with him closely dozens of times..he's a shade over six feet tall
Ray said on 11/May/07
Viper, I wasn't too sure about 6'2.4" for Connery until I saw a photo of Michael Caine with 6'2" and change, Clive Owen. They were the same height and Caine is in his seventies. Sean had easily 0.5" on Caine in "the man who would be king". He's also a heavily built guy which would give the impression of him being shorter than he actually is. I can see 6'2.4" for Connery in his early 20's.
Mario said on 10/May/07
That's your opinion, but considering he was about two inches taller than some guy's of that competetion who where at least 6 ft and that he looks easy 6 ft 2.5 in the Bond movie's next to his co-stars in my opinion, I think that that measurement is close or is the truth. 6 ft 2.4 sounds also pretty accurate.
I haven't seen much of Lazenby, and I keep changing my opinion on him, but he looks a good 6 ft 2 next to 5 ft 8.5 Diana Rigg.
Viper said on 9/May/07
"Connery was measured at 6'2.4" (189 cm). Lazenby, probably was 6'1.5" (187). Both, claim 6'2" which is reasonble enough but somebone an inch taller than you would be noticeable to yourself as you would feel yourself stretching to match their height."
Sorry Ray, but Ive never beleived the supposed 6-2.4 measurement for Connery. Not for a second. Mainly because we dont know If it was barefoot or in shoes, and secondly hes never really looked 6-2.4 at all. He looks a more beleivable 6-1.5 in the Bond films. So Lazenby at a flat 6-1 at peak and Connery at 6-1.5 peak looks to be more accurate.
said on 6/May/07
No offense Rob, but in that photo big George looks a good 5" taller so 6'1"!
lol, I'm not going to take offence at anybody's opinion ;)
its always interesting to read what people think height differences are. Many people overestimate it, even I would sometimes positively round what I think a diff might be in celeb2celeb comparisons...
5 inches is BIG though...
That pic is as close to ideal as you can get in photo ops with celebs...no footwear difference, same distance from camera, he isn't slouching, trust me on that...
If you want some sort of calculation to illustrate why he isn't 6ft 1 then:
Consider my interpupil distance, technically its slightly less than 6.4, but hey lets just use
Robs 6.4cm pupil
Lazenby pic with markings:
I've drew marks showing how much hair (mine isn't that much, lazenby is brushed up and back).
I drew mark showing the pupils aswell and that distance between them isn't more than 6.4cm.
Now, use that to figure out that he is close to 8.7cm taller, but lets be generous and round that to 9cm.
Look how much 8.6cm actually looks like with the ruler in the central part of my head:
- its a fair whack.
The pic might have some slight vertical distortion, but it really isn't much, the angle is pretty wide, but lets add on another 0.25cm. Lets give him another 0.25cm for say extra hair below my black hair line.
9.5cm we're up to now...or 5ft 11 and 3/4. Give him another 1/4 inch if you want, he's a good fella ;)
Leung said on 6/May/07
He was on “Where are they now?” (Aussie tv show) last night and he wasn’t much shorter than Kochie who is 6’3”. Lazenby looks 6’1”.

I like the Celtic shirt Rob
Anonymous said on 4/May/07
Where was this Rob?
Josh said on 4/May/07
6'0 seems about right.
said on 4/May/07
Looks 6'1" in that photo with Rob. He has stated that Connery was taller than him which would sound right. Connery was measured at 6'2.4" (189 cm). Lazenby, probably was 6'1.5" (187). Both, claim 6'2" which is reasonble enough but somebone an inch taller than you would be noticeable to yourself as you would feel yourself stretching to match their height.
[editor rob: this is close to ideal photo for calculating difference that i mention in one of the articles i know my various face dimensions and can be used to estimate pretty well.. he is very close to six foot but never over.]
Mario said on 4/May/07
Mr. Lazenby also told editor Rob that Sean Connery was taller than him. Would you say that somebody is 'taller' than you if that person has only a 0.4-0.5” on you?
Derek said on 3/May/07
Looks 6'0"-6'1" with Rob. Definitely under 6'2".
glenn said on 3/May/07
Viper said on 3/May/07
He listed at 6-1 as well.
Trev said on 29/Mar/07
A few years ago I bought a video box set of OHMSS, in the box was a booklet of the actors biog and stories about shooting the film , on the info of Lazenby is an image of his CV, with vital stats such as shoe size, coller, chest etc which states that he is 6'1.5". He was a great bond, if only he'd have stuck with it! Second best to Connery!
jan said on 29/Dec/06
He's still my favorite Bond.
firstname.lastname@example.org said on 29/Dec/06
When I met George recently he looked every inch of 6'2" (in fact I told my friends he seemed to be about 6'4" with a handshake of a much younger person. ...a nice chap, very amusing too.
Mario said on 13/Oct/06
And I always though that he looked in the 190 cm range! At least in OHMSS, because I don't know him from any other movie.
This hasn't much to do with his height, but how was the man himself Rob?
Editor Rob said on 2/Oct/06
I asked Lazenby on Saturday about his time on Bond and sneaked him a question about height/tallest bond, he said (paraphrasing) 'I'm 6ft 2, but Connery is taller than me'.
Nowadays, he has very good posture but I would have guessed not over 183cm today, so whether he's lost 1-1.5 inch, I dunno.
Jacks said on 26/Apr/06
6ft and .5 inches for lazenby. I don't think any of the Bonds were actually at 6'2. I think Brosnan is the shortest at 5'11 and 1/2in . No way Lazenby was at a solid 6'2.
Picture said on 25/Apr/06
Every Bond has been promoted at 6 ft 2.
I doubt they will do the same with Craigy.
Viper652 said on 21/Apr/06
Was Laznenby really a big 6-3 guy?? I keep reading some encountersd with him that say he was over 6-3, and the studios downgraded him? Im still sticking with 6-1 1/2 on him.
Picture said on 20/Apr/06
Peak height: 6 ft 3
Current height 6 ft 2.
Forever_69 said on 12/Mar/06
Not sure if this helps but on A&E they recently did a bio on Gene Simmons, in it there is a picture of him standing next to Connery, when Connery was in his mid 50's, possibly would have shrunk some by then, Simmons would be at peak height.
Both men have normal looking shoes on are facing each other, are same distance from camera, standinh upright, and on level fround, they appear exact same height.
Simmons is listed as being 6-2 in many sources, while Connery was said to be 6-2 in Never Say Never Again in 1983, down from 6-2.5 in his early 20s (which seems feasible)
Now in the 1986 film Too Young To Die, George Lazenby appears about an inch taller than Simmons. Lazenby would have been around age 46 at that time.
It's anecdotal evidence but it does appear Lazenby was more like a solid 6-3 compared to those two if they were 6-2.
[Editor Rob: it is feasible Lazenby was closer to 6ft 3 in his prime]
J.J.F said on 19/Dec/05
"I am 185-186cm and pegged Brosnan at 188cm minimum, he also had normal 2-2.5cm dress shoes on, so no LIFTS!!"
You still don't seem to understand that proper elevator shoes, dress shoes or boots it doesnt matter, are specially designed to look exactly like normal shoes, they dont have larger soles. You can't see the difference unless you lift up the trouser leg. Try and accept that.
You just can't be certain whether the guy had normal shoes on or not, no matter how annoyed this may make you.
As for lazenby I think he looked a solid 6'2" next to 'Q' in OHMSService.
Mario Nariano said on 3/Dec/05
Dalton and Brosnan are closer to the camera.
There is a picture in wich Lazenby and Dalton look about the same height and then again there is another picture in wich Moore looks about the same height as Brosnan.
Picture said on 24/Nov/05
I still can't believe that in such a cool site as celebheight Brosnan is listed as almost 6 ft 2. Everyone knows that Brosnan is shorter than Lazenby and Dalton who are now grandpas and not as tall as they were in there younger days.
Brett said on 23/Nov/05
Seb, I met Brosnan in the Marc hotel on madison and 77th Manhattan, he was standing with an elderly lady, whom I didnt recognise. Seb by saying Brosnan is no more then 6ft proves your ignorance, Brosnan in the pic with all 4 of them was the biggest one there bar Dalton, who was also closest to the camera. I am 185-186cm and pegged Brosnan at 188cm minimum, he also had normal 2-2.5cm dress shoes on, so no LIFTS!! Now seeing your just claiming heights based on nothing, and Yao is a chick, I think you guys are just wasting your energy typing. I can tell you that Connery is no more then 6ft anymore, as close friend of mine had a photo with connery, and connery was unable to see over my 5'8" inch friends head. I can see over it easily and im just over 6'1". So thats rubbish. Brosnan claims to be 6'2" and no less, and I am able to verify this. Seb you can list bond heights all you like, but seeing you have had no encounters with them, they will remain mere speculations, so stop bothering .
Seb said on 12/Nov/05
It's hilarious the people who come here lying about having met a certain celebrity, and ten times as well! The fact is Brosnan is no more than 6 foot and if he looks taller then he is wearing lifts. Lazenby was nearly 6'2 as a young man, and 6'1 now.
Seb said on 10/Nov/05
The only reason Brosnan looked taller than Moore is because Moore is old and has lost some height. If Brosnan looks 6'2 in real life then he is wearing some very good shoes because after Daniel Craig he is unquestionably the shortest actor to play Bond, so haha.
Brett said on 28/Oct/05
That site freewebs.com purposely doesnt show the pic of 4 of them when brosnan towers over moore, and only shows some other random pic, where moore probably has lifts on. But they choose to use half of the pic where all 4 of them are shown when comparing Lazenby to moore, sounds dodgy to me, hes just trying to list the order that he wants. If he just put that whole pic up he would see how much brosnan and dalton tower over the other 2.
Brett said on 28/Oct/05
yes like you would know haha are you their tailor. Ive met brosnan as Ive said about 10 times, in the marc hotel new york, and if he is 6'0" then i must be 5'11" except im 185-186cm and he was like 1 to 1.25 inches taller then me, so thats rubbish, nice one. Also in that pic with all four bonds ( laz, bros, Dalton, and moore) Brosnan and dalton are clearly the tallest while moore looks the shortest by a couple inches. so rubbish. I would say Lazenby is still around 6'1.5" or so, maybe a tiny bit more. As I have met brosnan, I just think its hilarious how people say hes only like 5'11" , the Brosnan i saw could see over a person whoes 5'11"s bloody head almost.
Seb said on 21/Oct/05
The real aheights of the Bond actors, according to their tailors:
Lazenby 6-1 and a half
Mario Nariano said on 16/Sep/05
Ehm if you have hear you look taller, so it's nonsense that a guy looks taller if he has is head shaped. I was at the Die Another Day premiere and I can tell you that Dalton is those days a little taller than Lazenby.
Mr. Klaus said on 13/Sep/05
In the picture of Lazenby, Moore and Dalton. Lazenby is the closest to the camera. Poeple who was at the die another premiere also claims that Dalton was the tallest of the 4 Bond actors.
Mario Nariano said on 27/Aug/05
I will soon rewatch the movie, but from what I can renember they looked at some points the same height. 2 inches isn´t really much, my uncle is 2 inches shorter than I, and sometimes he can look taller than my.
PS. I chanced DiCàprio´s height a year ago to 6 ft 1 and Eastwood to 6 ft 1.
Mario Nariona said on 24/Aug/05
The are some points in the wedding scene in wich Lazenby looks about the same hieght as Llewelyn. Llewelyn has bad posture, you should know that as a Bond fan. T o be honest lazenby ) who claims by himself that he is 6 ft 2) never looked taller than 6 ft 2
Mr. Klaus said on 22/Aug/05
Nah I don't think so, he was slighty over 6 ft when he was playing Bond. Moore is about the same height as Michael Lonsdale (His Moonraker co-star). From The pics that i have seen of Connery and Moore I would say that Connery is two inches taller. In 1981 Connery visited the "For your eyes only" set, i have seen some pics in wich you can clearly see that Connery was clearly two inches taller. In the Moore page there is also a good pic of Caine, Connery and Moore. Ah and Lazenby is those days a little shorter than Dalton.
Mr. Klaus said on 20/Aug/05
Do you see 2cm of difference between Connery and Moore? Because I not.
Viper652 said on 15/Aug/05
If Connery is 6-2.5 then why do his tailors say 6-1.5??? I will beleive them more over some random person on the internet.
Mr. Klaus said on 13/Aug/05
Lazenby has Hair and a damm good posture and Llewelyn not (and maybe he wasn't at his full height).
I only know Lazenby from his role as James Bond, so I don't know how tall he looks in his TV-series and other movie's, but he has sayd by himself that he was 6 ft 2, why would a 6 ft 3 guy say that he is 6 ft 2? Connery was 6 ft 2.4 and when poeple asked him about his height he sayd that he was 6 ft 2 because it's easier to say.
Anshelm said on 23/Jul/05
Indeed, in The Pretender he looked maybe 4–5 cm shorter than Michael T. Weiss (usually listed as 6'3", but his character's height was 6'2"). Of course, he was aged 59 and 60 in the episodes he appeared in.
David said on 3/Jun/05
It's true tennis player's heights nowadays are in their tennis shoes, adding about an inch from their barefoot height. However, in pam's day those heights were without shoes. Pam Shriver is 6 feet without shoes, as in her time they listed heights without shoes.
John said on 1/Jun/05
I have seen several picsof them. In one pic Lazenby is slouched over about 6 inches and still appears to be only about 2 inches shorter than Shriver. In another, standing next to each other Lazenby appears about an inch shorter, yet Shriver has high heels on. Tennis players arelisted in heights with shoes BTW. So Lazenby may be 6-1 now from old age barefoot, or still 6-2 barefoot, but he's at least 6-2 with shoes on.
Mr. R said on 21/May/05
One way to be sure about George - he is now married to former tennis player Pam Shriver who was always listed at 6 foot even. Maybe Rob can find a pic with the two of them together!
Seth said on 20/May/05
George Lazenby according to the Wax Museum, which still has his data claims that Lazenby was 6'2" tall without shoes on.
