I Think the chanses that he was 183 is as big as 185. 6 foot and 1/4 inches tall peak. I love Indiana jones Movies and wanted him to be taller than he was when i was younger. But i have never though he looked 185. Just a Little taller than Bruce willis. Today he can sometimes look weak 179.
20 % 185
55% 184
25% strong 183

@Judd What world do you live in? Harrison Ford 186 cm??????? That's impossible.

Compare 47-year-old Harrison Ford with 59-year-old Sean Connery (probably 187 cm):

In this pic he looks 182-183 cm.

Ford never was taller than 184 cm. Have you seen him in Blade Runner? Even when he was younger, he never looked over 184 cm.

Rampage- he looks better than clint Eastwood put it that way
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/16
Rob, at what stage do you think Ford began to look shorter than 6ft?
Editor Rob: maybe 15 years ago he could at times look a weak 6ft
Judd said on 24/May/16
PEAK
Max: 6'1.25"/186 cms
Min: 6'0.5"/184 cms

TODAY
Max: 5'11.5"/182 cms
Min: 5'11"/180 cms

(Max-Min is the daily shrinkage)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/16
Other than those injuries which somewhat come with the job, he's in good shape for 74. Could pass for early 60's
HULK said on 14/May/16
This guy was 6ft max in his prime, Just look at his pictures with Mel gibson and Wesley snipes,
6ft-Prime
5'10-Today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/16
@Snoke: Possibly still at least 6ft. Some guys in their 70s lose barely anythingÖ
berta said on 10/May/16
Peak 184 now 180 maybe 179
James B said on 8/May/16
A bit over 6ft translates to 6ft 1/2
James said on 4/May/16
185 cm for Ford is literally impossible.
I generally agree with all the listings on this page. But this is an exception. IMO: 6 ft 0.5 in (184 cm) PEAK , 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) TODAY.
In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Ford looks 6 ft next to 6 ft 2 or 6 ft 1.5 Sean Connery:
Click Here

Most importantly, in Blade Runner he was at his peak and he looks 184 cm MAXIMUM. Even as Han Solo, Ford never looks over 184 cm.

Rob, are you completely sure Harrison Ford was taller than Gareth Bale at his peak?
Editor Rob: in the 80's there was a couple of mentions that he was a bit over 6ft, whether it came from him or was the journalists estimate is harder to tell...
jervis said on 4/May/16
If you google Steven Seagal Harrison ford images,6ft4 Seagal has about 5 inches on Ford,intact Seagal has to look down on Ford he is so much taller.Somebody needs a downgrade or upgrade,IMO Seagal always looked taller than 6ft4 more 6ft5 peak.
Snoke said on 29/Apr/16
Hey Rob, what height do you think he'd be at today without all his injuries and what not?
Editor Rob: I think over 5ft 11 near 6ft
musket said on 28/Apr/16
He lost a lot of height and is at a weak 5'11

Ford looks at least 1in taller than TLJ.

looked at the fugitive yesterday. He and tommy lee jones looked about the same height but i thought tommy was the taller one. So he was about 183 in the fugitiveore a very very weak 184
truth said on 25/Apr/16
A little over 6ft0 peak and a little over 5ft11 today.
Aravind said on 13/Apr/16
Harrison Ford,a.k.a Indiana Jones is 5'11 due to 73 years of age.

Rampage i hope you don't sleep with him:) That green scarf cracks me up.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Mar/16
Rob, would it be fair to say that Ford gave a shorter impression beside Melanie Griffith in Working Girl than Alec Baldwin?

I'm sure Harrison is/was taller than Alec. But I take James's point. He does not look over 6ft in it.
James B said on 26/Mar/16
rob do you think by the time of working girl he might have not been any taller than a solid 6ft? I think the injury sustained in the temple of doom made him lose a fraction.
Editor Rob: by then I'd say a fraction would have been likely.
James B said on 26/Mar/16
He didn't look that tall in working girl too me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/16

TODAY
Out of bed: 182-183cm

berta said on 24/Mar/16
6 foot and 1/4 inch thats his peak height. At best 1/2
richie said on 23/Mar/16
Ford's peak height was 6'1.5".Check out Force 10 From Navarone, he towered Robert Shaw by at least 3 inches and edged Carl Weathers who was 6'1", peak height was close to 6'2"
Anonymous1 said on 21/Mar/16
He was shorter than Connery in "Last Crusade", and as far as Connery goes, I go by whatever site has that article by or about the Bond tailors, who had him at 6'1.5. I'm 6'1 out of bed, and a bit over 6 at night. So, if we really want to get nitty gritty, we'd have to know at what time of day Ford's height was based on. I don't, at all, think 6 even, during his heyday...post morning, is impossible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/16
Me neither. It's just some on here are adamant that the guy was another victim of the 2in rule in Hollywood. 6ft1 is hardly a joke for him. He probably was that for a portion of the day and then dipped a tad under it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/16
Working Girl is another memorable role
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft flat for his peak?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't go that low for him.
Judd said on 9/Mar/16
Of course rob this is may be the situation where an actor has lost more than 1" at 74, however there're a lot of people here on this site who think Ford is more 5'10" than 5'11" today.
Personally I think 6'0.5" would be a safe mark, because I doubt at peak (until 40s) he was under that line...6'0.75" is maybe more optimistic...I think he was more like Bradley Cooper in height!
However I don't know who is the stuntman that said he and Ford were at the same height, but I know that for a long while Armstrong was his stuntman and Ford was in a couple of pictures a little over him, also if we don't know what kind of shoes they were and I have always known that Armstrong was listed at 6', not a little over that...
5ft 9.25 said on 9/Mar/16
He never measured 6ft .75 in his entire life! Not even 'out of bed'...
Judd said on 6/Mar/16
Yeah this is not the first time I heard that...
However 3,5"/4cms are a good amount, larger than what we could expect on average.

Actually Rob if you watch also his first movies in my opinion he does look more a stronger 6' than a weak 6'1...
I believe that at the end of 80s/begin of 90s he was 6', compared to other actors...
Of course we will never be sure about his peak height but IMO a 6'0.75" had to be taller next to a 6'1" like Rutger Hauer in 1980...
Editor Rob: 184 is arguable (a stuntman said he and Ford were the same height, a 'little over 6ft'...I've always said though Ford is a prime candidate for injury related loss. Here is an old quote:

"I have no ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) in my left knee, Iíve had an ACL transplant in my right knee, and Iíve been in and out of various surgeries. In my last movie, I tore a hamstring. I have herniated discs to the point of having an operation. Iíve limped through most of my f**king movies. But itís still a good way to make a living"
Judd said on 4/Mar/16
Actually Rob I don't see a lot of injuries which could generate a bigger loss than the average...yes of course he has more than one injuries but his back seems to be fine...
Editor Rob: when filming Indy he did actually damage his back. Sometimes effects over years can accumulate.
Damage one disc and others around can be effected. He's an actor who did more physical stunt work than most.

I'm sure he busted his knee on The Fugitive.
We know he done in his ankle/leg on Force Awakens.
Then his last crash done some more damage to pelvis etc.
Judd said on 1/Mar/16
Rob Harrison Ford doesn't show particularly problems at his back, so it's hard for me believe he has already lost almost 2" in height.
When he was young in my opinion he always looked a strong 6' (I will never trust Ford under 6') but actually never a solid 6'1" guy.
Any chance he was 6'0.5" at peak?
Editor Rob: 184 range is always arguable, but a guy like Ford has had numerous injuries and I think moreso than your average man. So I'd expect he would have lost a bit more than average.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Feb/16
185cm peak is fair because technically that is a hair under 6ft1 while 185.4cm is 6ft1 on the nose. It's kinda pointless to debate decimals but if Ford was a solid 6ft1 guy like Kevin Costner or Richard Harris he'd easily look closer to 6ft2 which he never did.
tumac66 said on 20/Feb/16
I think his peak height was closer to 6`1 and a half. He looked slightly taller than Carl Weathers and john Rhys Davies, And they are both listed as 6`1. People do shrink with age. I think you got his current height spot on. Oh and before everybody starts with the" those other guys are not that tall, Carl Weathers looks about 5 inches taller then Rob in their pic.
Spencer said on 19/Feb/16
He doesn't look more than 5'10 today..maybe 5'10.5 I don't think he was much over 6 at peak. Maybe 184 cm at most.
Johno said on 15/Feb/16
About 1.5 inches taller then John Boyega so about 5'10 now. Had nearly 2 inches on Brad Pitt in Devil's own so in his lates 50s and 60s he was still keeping stature.

Phis38 said on 10/Feb/16
If Harrison Ford was below 6'1 at peak then Mark Hamill is about 5'4 and Carrie Fisher is sub 5 foot, but seeing him in a lot of films late 70s early 80s he was easily over 6 foot .
The Master said on 6/Feb/16
I reckon:
Peak: 5'11.5"
Today: 5'10.75"
Jedi Master 5' 11 said on 5/Feb/16
If you put this man in Han Solo boots he can look well close to 6' 2". He's a good 6' 0" in most shoes now, so 5' 11" is fair here. His posture has gone to ****e though, from old age and other things.
Z187 said on 4/Feb/16
I'm light of rampage clovers comment. Rob what would you say was the maximum range of someone's height was, not just the usual daytime changes, like, their max out of bed compared with a min low.... 3cm?
Editor Rob: for most people under 6ft 2 I'd say 3cm range...with some exceptions of absolute lows taking it to 3.5 range...for over 6ft 2 and upwards it is something I'm quite curious about finding out - especially those guys in 6ft 8-7ft zone.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Feb/16
Rob is 187cm out of bed peak possible for Ford?
Editor Rob: it's quite probable, unless he was only 184cm...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/16
Ford does look 6ft1 in The Conversation w/h Gene Hackman (underrated movie and underrated performances from both men).
amaterasu said on 19/Jan/16
Rob, maybe 6'0.25-0.5" is closer ? Since it is just over 6ft. Do you really think he was nothing under 185cm at his peak?
Danimal176 said on 9/Jan/16
Looks a little over 5'10" today. As for his peak, he was close to 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/16
A 4-5cm loss is feasible.

this seems about right. i would lay my Money on 184 peak and 179 now
Sammy Derrick said on 6/Jan/16
In the movie,The Fugitive.His character is described as 6'1,180lbs with brown hair and brown eyes!!!This was in 1992

He had a good 3 inches on 5ft10 Robert Shaw in Force 10 from Navrone in 1978.
James B said on 3/Jan/16
Doubt he gives 2 ****s about his height loss
jtm said on 3/Jan/16
he wasn't much shorter than hackman in conversation but that's because he was closer to the camera.
1,8288 m said on 2/Jan/16

He was 1,845m peak

You finally did what was necessary Rob.
the shredder said on 30/Dec/15
Looking at pics from the early 90's , he looked barely 6 ft.
James B said on 29/Dec/15
Do you agree rob ford is aging better than someone like clint Eastwood? Harrison ford still looks very fit and robust whereas clint looks quite frail.


But I guess there is a 12 year age gap........

Clint I think has not aged too well he looks a little weird actually like a skeleton
Editor Rob: he's had a fair amount of injuries through his career, but does look good for a 73 year old man.
Sam said on 27/Dec/15
Yeah I think more 183cm-184cm was his peak... strong 6 footer. Nowadays he looks 5'11. Arnold has definatley lost more in my opinion that's why. Probably no taller than Ford is today.
Elias said on 25/Dec/15
Ford has lost about the same amount of height as Arnold, but contrary to arnold, his body does not seem compressed.
Juan Z said on 22/Dec/15
If John Boyega is 5'9 and Daisy Ridley is 5'7, then Harrison Ford is 6'.
grizz said on 20/Dec/15
I forgot to give my estimate on his height. I think that he was 6'0.5 at his prime which perfectly fits his "a little over 6foot mark" claim. 6'0.75 is closer to 6'1 and it's pointless to downgrade himself instead of upgrading.
Nowadays he's lucky if he pulls out 5'11.
1.5 inches of height loss is understandable, though, given his age and a number of physical injuries.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 16/Dec/15
Harrison Ford is still 6 ft 1 and 175 pounds, according to this new interview of Men's Journal Magazine. Click Here

Certainly a strong 6 footer in the 70's-80's.
Big C said on 14/Dec/15
Rob do you think Mark Hamill looked 5ft 8 in Star Wars? Or do you think he was still 5ft 7 range then like you have him listed at now?
Editor Rob: I think he looked 5ft 7ish in the movie, just like his own claim really.
Anon2232 said on 13/Dec/15
Looks sub 5'11 today, I bet he was right near 6'1 at his peak, if not the full 6'1". In a movie he starred in with Gene Hackman (who is widely regarded as a legit 6'2) called The Conversation, he was eye level with Hackman. He maybe looked an inch shorter at most. I don't imagine Hackman straying far from the 6'2 mark in that movie either. What do you guys think?:

Big C said on 12/Dec/15
Rob how tall did you think Darth Vader (David Prowse) looked in Star Wars with Han Solo? (Harrison Ford)I thought Vader looked in 6ft 4-6ft 4.5 range no way he was anywhere near 6ft 7 or 6ft 8, dont get me wrong he still was a big guy but he just didn't look that tall and how many inches do you think he had on Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill)? 8-9 inches maybe?
Editor Rob: I think he looked close to 6ft 5...but a guy like Prowse could have lost height by early 40's...
Willes190 said on 11/Dec/15
I rarley downgrade celebs on this site, but i think his peak height was about 6'0.25, maybe 6'0.5, i don't know about his current height doe
Spencer said on 11/Dec/15
184 cm peak..180-81 now.
The shredder said on 10/Dec/15
He honestly looks 5'10.5 range nowadays ,.
grizz said on 7/Dec/15
He looks so debonair with that scarf :D
A living legend. Too bad many injuries took a hit on his height. Although physically he looks better than many youngsters.
Brad said on 7/Dec/15
Just over 6 flat peak, as listed today.
Big C said on 7/Dec/15
Rob I thought Harrison was more 184cm at his peak than 185, don't you think he was more 6ft 0.5 than 6ft 0.75?
Editor Rob: 184 can be argued for him
mike said on 2/Dec/15
I saw him at ucla theatre while his wife was performng. 5'11" to 6 feet
MaskDeMasque said on 29/Nov/15
imo 6' prime, 5'11 now.

Was taller than Brad Pitt in 'the devils own', 184 peak I would suppose.

Rob, would you please add Witness, Working Girl, Air Force One and 42 to his credits?
the shredder said on 25/Oct/15
I think 6'0 is better than 6'1 peak , now he looks no more than about 5'10.5 , thought that is age/posture.
Axaros said on 25/Oct/15
Nowdays Ford looks around 5'10''
Sonny Black said on 25/Oct/15
Lol @ "Muk!" That's the worst angle possible for height comparison...
Jim Hopper said on 23/Oct/15
Never 6-1" prime. 6-0" prime now 5-11" max
Muk said on 22/Oct/15
Check the picture of Harrison Ford with David Blaine. Blaine looks approx. 2+ inches taller than Ford. Blaine is billed at 6'0". Being conservative, it could be Blaine is wearing shoes and Ford is not - since it's his house and kitchen. But I'd guess shoe-less Blaine would still have Ford by an inch. Also, given actors tend to be billed as taller than they are I might question Ford's 6'1" billing.

Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 11/Oct/15
6'1" in 1975, 6'0 in the 90's, 5'11 flat today. A 1980's Harrison has almost identical measurements to the 1980's Kevin Costner, based on auctioned off costume measurements: 34 x 34 pants, 34 sleeve, 16 neck, 38-40 chest jacket, size 10-1/2 boot, a size 7-1/4 hat., ranged from 165 -180 lbs. 34 is a pretty decent inseam, landing him in the 6 foot and up club for sure when he was younger.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 2/Oct/15
Rampage: I admire your dedication. I think though, for the majority of sedentary people don't like working out...I'd argue becoming "fit", say 15% body fat for men, and 20-25% body fat for women are realistically attainable goals. Having a 1970's Harrison Ford build may not be the same as being stacked like Dwayne Johnson or today's body builders, but it is arguably healthier feeling and looking than being pre-obese where most Americans today are heading towards -- Fitness is sort between the 2 extremes -- ultra ripped, and obese.
Judd ISR said on 2/Oct/15
Rob what's your estimate for his peak height (when he was twenties)?

A) 187,0cms/185,0cms
B) 186,5cms/184,5cms
C) 186,0cms/184,0cms
D) 185,5cms/183,5cms

I live in UK and have a friend who is 5'6 3/4 (he claims 5'8) and I am guessing he weighs 200 pounds. To join the army he said he has to get down to 140 pounds.

Naturally my friend is big boned so he would be better of at 155 pounds.
184.3cm (Night) said on 28/Sep/15
I dont want to comment on the US as it has the highest obesity rates in the western world. However in most european countries you dont really have alot of men with over 25% bodyfat (obesity). When i was younger i had a BF percentage of 17 at 83kg. Now at 34 i have a BF percentage of 13 at 94kg. We all have different frames and if you have a doctor who knows this they will also measure your wrists before giving you a verdict on your BMI.

Don't forget that the average man has a BF percentage of somewhere 18-24 percent.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 27/Sep/15
184.3cm: Similar in that the BMI healthy range for 6 feet is 136 - 184 lbs, and US Army weight regulation for 6 ft is 140 -200 lbs for men between 18 and 40. So 170 lbs would be right in the middle.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 27/Sep/15
A 236 lb man at 7% Body fat would have been seen as a god among Union Army ranks. But that type of body requires a lot of up-keep am I right? And even in this modern day, how many men have sub 10% body fat? Probably less than 1 in 10. Only 16% of the US population has gym membership, and CDC estimate 80% seldom exercise... The real question then becomes, what body type is a General looking for in his soldiers? Men who can march 20 miles, live on coffee and beans, (No McDonalds in the barracks back then) dig trenches, and sleep in the mud, and still put up a good fight-- or ultimate Dwayne Johnson types who are 3 x stronger than average and eat 3 x the food, and is 3 x the target on the battlefield? The lean hunter gatherer physique has been the rule, rather than exception in modern soldiers up until recent decades.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/15
Being "fat" and being "overweight" are two completely different things. I'm 236lbs (7% bodyfat) at almost 6ft4. I'll be 40 next year and I consider myself to be in the best shape of my life, better than when I was 20-25.
184.3cm (Night) said on 25/Sep/15
Very similar? 73 kilos for war veterans and nowadays up to 93 kilo before you are deemed unfit , so long as you have in excess of 20 percent bodyfat, which means they do consider bodybuilders. 20 kilo is a massive difference.
The BMI nonsense only good for women and frail men. Any guy who lifts on a regular basis with our superior nutrition in the modern age will easily weigh 185 pounds + at 6 foot.
James B said on 23/Sep/15
Exactly I think the human body looks better when in the healthy bmi range
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 22/Sep/15
Rampage: Before we toss out BMI completely, we should remember the US Army weight standards today are very similar. A man of 6 feet can be disqualified from service if he exceeds the 190 to 204 pound range depending on age, and his body fat exceeds 20%. The average young man in America would not qualify.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 22/Sep/15
Harrison was 6 feet 1 and 165-170 pounds in the 1970's and he certainly did not look emaciated. Newspapers listed him as robust and of "strong physique." He was of typical build for a man of the pre-industrial period.

I actually tabulated the average weights of men and U.S. soldiers in the period 1861 to 1944, using height and weight data of over 8 million draftees from the Civil War to World war II. For 80 years of America's bloodiest wars, soldiers kept a mean BMI of 22. This puts the weight of a 6 foot soldier at approx. 162 pounds, or 168 lbs fully clothed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Sep/15
@James B: I disagree. That BMI model is so inaccurate and so outdated. It would categorise someone like Dwayne Johnson or John Cena as overweight or even obese.
James B said on 3/Sep/15
A small built 6'1 man should weigh 164 pounds, medium built 177 pounds and large framed 6'1 man 187 pounds.
Judd ISR said on 1/Sep/15
Starting from the point that I believe that Ford was at peak 6'0.5" instead an almost 6'1", of course in the Raiders he did look very slim and also at the beginning of his career...I think his weight, figure with high shoulder and small head and long legs contributed to make him seems taller...
Beachboy said on 29/Aug/15
Everyone has different bone structures, muscle density, leg size which can attribute to it.
A friend of mine was 6'0 120s and he looked really lean, but certainly not "emaciated". He did have good leg size for somebody at that weight. I'm 5'11 155 and I still have some excess fat.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Aug/15
177 overweight for 6 ft 1 LOL? Djokovic is about 177 pounds at almost 6'2" and look how skinny he is!
Arch Stanton said on 28/Aug/15
165 for 6'1 is very slender Magic, but not exactly "insanely skinny" which would be 130-140 pounds or something. On youtube there's a guy called the "Life Regenerator or something who preaches about raw food I've seen and he claims 6 ft 2 and 165 pounds and he hasn't an ounce of fat on him, looks like he lives on a desert island. He looks very slender and sinewy in build, healthy, but any lighter and he'd look emaciated.
MD said on 28/Aug/15
@Magic,

You've got some extremely warped views of what "normal" and healthy are. Even taking into account cultural differences (I'm not sure we're you're from). A 6'1" 165lbs is never going to look "big" and 6'1" at 120lbs IS emaciated-looking. My goodness.
Magic said on 26/Aug/15
My brother is about 6'1 and very overweight at 200 pounds. He would still look chubby at 6'1 177.
Magic said on 26/Aug/15
6'1 165 is a good size for most. Female? Look how big Thomas Hearns looks here at 165. Click Here . I have a friend who is 6'1 165 and he looks "big." Insanely skinny is 6'1 130.

Nah, 6'1 177 is nearing overweight range for most people.

Rocky, how do you look emaciated at 5'9 170. I know a guy around that and he looks chubby.

Heck, I was 6'1 120 at one point in high school and didnt even look insanely skinny. 30 inch waist and the lowest . Skinny but not emaciated looking. I wore size large shirts and couldnt fit into medium.

I also know a 6'3 170 guy with a 32 inch waist and he looks real good.

If I was 6'1 160 Id look real good. 40 inch chest 32 inch waist male model proportions.

A regular 6'1 man should weigh 177 pounds
Rocky said on 19/Aug/15
Disagreed heavily OME. 6'1'' and 165 is insanely skinny, it's pretty much a female weight. I'm 5'9'' and 170 lbs, 10% body fat or so, and I look emaciated.
OME said on 17/Aug/15
James B said on 3/Aug/15
160-165 pounds is thin for someone who is 185cm.

I'd expect a small built 6'1 man to weigh that but ford seemed medium framed to me. By the 80s he looked heavier than that for sure since he bench pressed a lot for temple of doom.

LOL no it isnt. Hell, when I was 6'1 150 I couldnt wear anything smaller than large size. Now at 6'3 185 I cant wear anything smaller than XL. And I have to wear pants 2 sizes bigger because of my legs.

Plus for most people 6'0 185 is considered overweight according to the BMI. Again BMI is good for regular people.
Axaros said on 16/Aug/15
I think Ford wasn't 6'0.75'' at peak. If nowdays he's near 5'10'' he was about 6'' at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/15
I reckon 200lbs solid in the 80's. He was jacked in Raiders of The Last Ark and The Lost Temple. The Han Solo years, a svelte 175lbs.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 6/Aug/15
James B, Yeah I don't think Ford has ever been over 200 pounds, he's always been in fit shape. Every interview and news article from the 70's and 80's lists him in the 160 to 175 or 180 pound range. His lean figure also makes his 6 ft 1 height all the more believable. His jacket from Raiders was auctioned off some years ago and it was only a 38 to 40 inch chest size -- indicating a man not over 170 or 180 pounds.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/15
He probably held 6ft1 for the first half of the day then dipped slightly under it in the late afternoon.
He had a right to claim it. This listing is perfect

He was consistently listed at 6'1 and 160 or 165 lbs in the "Close-up" move magazine clippings. Click Here

@Rob Pause at 2:13:49 Click Here Actually in looking again the difference isn't as much as I'd thought in the film. He looks in 6'1 range I think.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Jul/15
Rob, have you seen Clear and Present Danger (also worth adding)?. In it he looked about 1.5 inches shorter than Donald Moffat who is on imdb at 6'1.5. Honestly in the film I got a good look at them and I came here thinking you'd have Moffat at 6'2.5 or something.
[Editor Rob: I'd need to watch moffat to add him]

Jesse Stone said on 28/Jun/15
Just watched Clear and Present Danger yesterday and his "a bit over the 6 ft mark" seems perfect. I'd say 184 cm in his prime and around 5'11 (180 cm)today. So he could have lost near 2 inches of height. A great actor!

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/15
Near 6ft1 peak is believable watching Blade Runner and Raiders of The Lost Ark.
Tim1.79 said on 6/Jun/15
And I think he was no more than 183cm at his peak, anything over 6ft was probably in shoe measurements. I know that he is old now, but he did look very close in height to 177-178cm Daniel Craig, was taller than Craig by maybe 2cm. So I believe he is 179-180cm now, and was 183cm back in the days, makes sense.
marc said on 1/Jun/15
I'm one of those who believe that at least today, at his seventies, he's no taller than 5'9". At least, that's what can be seen at the "Expendables 3" teaser, where he is the same distance from the camera as Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas, and the three are the same height.
Judd said on 22/May/15
if letterman is 6'0.75-1" today (and he seems it a lot, look at him next to Obama), then Ford is for sure in the 5'11" range: Click Here

i think he's anywhere between 5'10.75 (at worst) and 5'11.25 (at best) so i think the ave, 5'11 would be the fairest choice.
about his peak height it's not clear, but for sure he wasn't anything under a strong 6'...6'0.25 (at worst), 6'0.5" and 6'0.75" (at best) are all fine, but not 6'0" or even 6'1".
IMO:

Currently: range 5'10.75-11.25"
Peak: range 6'0.25-6'0.75"
Mark said on 21/May/15
Ford was 6'1" during his prime years but clearly has lost height, he looked only slightly taller than Daniel Craig in Cowboys and Aliens. Craig could have been wearing lifts in shoes which I would suspect. Craig I believe is no taller than 5'9" but Ford is no shorter than 5'11' these days, he has lost height due to age an injury but is in excellent shape for a man in his 70s.

I think Ford in his prime was roughly the same as Henry Cavill. Dropped to 184.5cm at his lowest and could get away with claiming 6ft1

Harrison was never over 6 feet. He is (a lot) shorter in public. Today, barely 5'9" in flat feet.
Arthur 5'10 said on 16/Mar/15
Rob in a scene in 'Fugitive' where Ford is dressed as a doctor trying to escape from a hospital, a policeman asks him whether he has seen the suspect and describes him as 6'1". Is that worth adding in the description?
[Editor Rob: the mugshot in the movie is probably a good indicator he wasn't 6ft 1 in it, I think he should have looked taller.]

Connery was still 6ft2 in 1989
CDS said on 16/Feb/15
This guy has obviously lost some height over the years- dunno if it was due to that back surgery he had in the '80s during "Temple of Doom", or just natural height loss with age, but here is my guestimate- peak height-->> a little over 6' in bare feet, and now between 5'10" and 5'11" bare feet. Maybe in the '90s, he was in the 5'11 1/2" bare feet range-?? The little over six feet claim he made for himself would make sense, as well as go right along with the 6'1" official height listing (in shoes), and more recently he looked only a hair taller than 5'10" Ray Winstone in "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull", and easily 4 inches shorter than 6'3"-ers Paul Bettany in "Firewall" and Liam Helmsworth in "Paranoia".

Connery must have lost 1cm from his peak by 1989 Arch

Personally i think Connery was no less than 6'1.5" in the last crusade...as i said before, in 1987 AA cerimony he was as tall as Kevin Kline, who was an honest 6'1.5" guy...

Never looked more than 6 foot. Only in Star Wars when he had chunky heels did he look over it. Look at him next to an aged Sean Connery, Sean had probably lost a good chunk and was about 6'1 during The Last Crusade and yet was easily taller. Nowadays he looks no more than 5'10.5.
Joe said on 2/Feb/15
Ford was definitely over 6 feet tall in his prime years, it was not a stretch to say that he was close to 6'1" when he was acting in action films. He was acting with Daniel Craig in Cowboys and Aliens, in one publicity photo he appeared to be the same height as Daniel Craig and in other photos he was noticeably taller, which leads me to believe that Craig wears lifts, also in another photo the two appear to the be the same height, and in one other photo the Ford appears to be only one inch taller. I think Ford today is 5'11", his peak was 6'0.5", not a full 6'1", it was not a stretch for him to tell people he was 6'1", it was nothing like Stallone bragging about him being 5'11' when in reality he was only 5'7".

Joe said on 28/Jan/15
I think 6'1" was his height in shoes. He was more like 6 feet and half an inch barefoot. He is a very lean man, apparently his weight is between 160 to 170 pounds which is very lean for a man that is over 6 feet tall, so that can give him the appearance of being taller. In the Fugitive he looked slightly taller than Tommy Lee Jones who is around 5'11.5" to 6 feet. Lately he looks the same height as 5'10" Daniel Craig, Craig is still in his prime years, Ford is an old man, people begin to lose height in their 50s and 60s due to the cartilage in their spine and knees wearing out.
Christian said on 10/Jan/15

I think he was 6'0.5" in his prime years, he is probably 5'11" today, I think he might be even less, maybe 5'10", but then again he is in his 70s, he is an old man Also comparing Ford to Stallone is a bad idea, Stallone wears lifts, and shoes with thick soles, he has claimed he was 5'11" when he was doing Rocky and Rambo movies, LMAO, Stallone is 5'7".

Or you measured at different times during the day over those few years... You shrink through the day you know, sorry to burst your bubble, just leave your theory on men growing after 18 up to a geneticist, as I am sure there are many factors involved in growth and it's not the same for every man as your comment suggests.

When I was 18, I stood 180 (5'11''). By the time I was 21, 184 6'1/2'' and by the time I was 25-30, 186 (6 1 1/4''), my current height. 15 years later, only my belly is growing.
But that's true, men do grow after they 18.

Ford was 6 ft 0.5 peak = 5'11 or 5-11.25 flat today. lost 1.5 inches due to age, and back surgery. Maybe he should get an inversion bed.

Ape 4: When I was 18, I measured 5'11.25 in the evening. By age 24 I measured 5'11.75 in the evening. So 1/2 inch, or 1 to 2 cm is normal to gain in your early 20's.

Around 6'1" peak. With the injury sustained in ToD he must've shrank to around 5'11" in the 90's.
SaveUsY2J said on 22/Sep/14
In Blade Runner he was slightly shorter than Rutger Hauer but it's possible Hauer cleared the 6'1 mark slightly. In their respective primes I could definitely see him being 6'0.75 and Hauer 6'1.25.

Looking back at his 70s/80s films I struggle to believe he was anything taller than a weak 6ft, he was slim and we know they used all sort of tricks to make people appear taller. IMHO 6ft in the morning at peak and now between 5ft 10 and 11.

Looked really tall in his prime. Looking back at Star Wars he looks like he could almost pass for 6'2" (at least). I assume being very lean and surrounded by short actors and extras worked in his favor to achieve that affect. I'd certainly say he was essentially 6'1". After Temple of Doom he apparently lost an inch due to an injury on set. You can actually tell that he seems slightly shorter in The Last Crusade.

Harrison Ford's height is 5ft 11in (180 cm)
Peak height was between 6ft 0.25in (184 cm) and 6ft 0.75in (185 cm)

Today he really looks not above 5ft 11, so i think he would touch it if measured. I'm not sure about his peak height, but i think he was between 6ft 0.25 (at worst) and 6ft 0.75 (best)...like 185,5-186,5 in the morning and 183,5-184,5 in the evening.

Boris, there's no proof today he's 5'11.5. Also next to a lot of people who are in the 5'11-11.5 range (es: Jimmy Kimmel) he looks shorter. I think today 5'11 is very fair for him.

I just saw Harrison Ford on Jimmy Fallon's show where he pierces Jimmy's ear. It's pretty conclusive now that Ford is not any taller than 5 feet 11 nowdays. If Jimmy is nearly 6 feet, Ford was a full inch shorter than him.

I say 6 ft 1/2 inch prime for Ford at age 35, and 6 ft at age 50, high 5 ft11's in the past decade.

I have a photo from 2007 of myself with Harrison Ford standing side by side. I am 5'11,7/8" in my bare feet. In the photo we are exactly the same height. (with shoes on, of course).He could very easily be 6'0 without shoes on. He is absolutely taller than 5'11.5

I have to say, watching Blade runner, he really does give a 184cm impression. In fact, I think peak Ford was very similar to Alexis Denisof in terms of height and build, both slender, long legs, good posture, both can give a 6'1 impression, but we now know Alex was never more than a good 184cm. Ford may have very well have been the same, though my "Official" peak height for Ford remains 6ft0.75/185...

Mugahot,

Being that you are a guy from medical profession, then I am encouraged to hear you acknowledge that 2-3 cm is an average level of shrinkage by old age. In fact, I would say over 3 cm of shrinkage is not inconceivable for those who have sustained disc surgery and or scoliosis. My grand father was 5'10.5 and 156 pounds at age 26 in the U.S. Army in 1944. By age 90, in 2008 he stood 5'5", due in part to a curved spine, but also general aging. an inch or 1.5 inches can be expected by age 75 or 80,unless one is a rare individual who keeps very good posture and abdominal musculature well into their 70's. Dr. Roshini Raj was interviewed on NBC's Today show Friday Oct 7, 2011, going into great detail explaining the average decrease in stature of senior citizens.

If Harrison Ford was 6 foot -1/2 inch tall by mid day (as I propose) at age 30, his current height of 5'11 -5'11.5 seems very consistent for his age of 71 years.

I'd say Ford was 186-187cm out of bed in his prime.
Mugahot said on 1/Mar/14
As a guy from medical profession, I can tell you this for sure: people, on average, do not "shrink" more than 2-3 cm. It's just ridiculous to read about each older actor here than he shrank more than 3 cm. LOL

A 34 inseam is pretty long. And don't forget he states his own height as 6'1 in the fugitive itself, much better than a poster. Anyway, although they're is no chance for 6'1, I do think he was a solid 184 at peak, and the 6ft0.75 listing fits him, though 6ft0.5 is likely. PS: with Billy Dee Williams finally at 180cm peak, Ford's gotta be over 6 feet ;)
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 18/Feb/14
Maio & Jake,

Agreed, 6ft 1/2" 184 cm his peak height in the 70's. The Fugitive shows him standing up to a line up and he is 6'1" in shoes. He probably has lost 1 or 1.5 inches in height like most men tend to by age 71, Ford looks a flat 5-11 these days. And if Ford really was 165 lbs in New Hope, that explains why he appeared rather tall in Star Wars and all his early films. Being lanky can give an optical illusion of being 1 or 2 inches taller.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 17/Feb/14
Mike, Harrison Ford is described at age 35 in this 1977 Magazine as 6'1" a "lanky" 165 pounds, brown eyes, brown hair, Age 35:

This actually makes him about 5 or 10 lbs lighter than I figured he was in Star Wars 1977, and once again reinforces for me the belief that a true 6 footer, when slender and medium framed, can look a strong 6'1" on screen. Kind of like how Hayden Christensen was thought to be 6'1 or 6'2, his slim frame made him appear 2 inches taller. And I really doubt Ford was any taller tan the statuesque Christensen... Maybe 1/4 inch or something at best.

Harrison Ford was never over six feet.

Harrison Ford is no taller than 5'10.5. Look at Robert Patrick ( 5'10.5" with Rob) and Harrison pictured below.

The Conversation is a very good film agreed, and a groundbreaking one in terms of the approach, but clearly not Coppola's best. He was arguably the best film director of the 70s though, although Kubrick overall is my favourite.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 29/Jan/14
6'1 was likely his stage height in shoes. His peak stature was 6 foot, maybe a touch over 6'. But he could look a strong 6'1 because he was lean in the 70's-80's, probably 170- 175 lbs. and he even lost 15 lbs for Apocalypse Now, where he looks like a skeletal 160.

From Star Wars in '77 to Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, measurements of his movie props show him to be modestly sized: wore a 38 - 40 jacket!, 15 1/2 neck, 32-34 pants, size 7 1/8 hat, and size 10-1/2 Alden 405 boots. Even as late as the 'fugitive' in '93, he was listed at 6 ft and 175 lbs on the "wanted" poster for the movie, and is photographed standing against a line-up which shows him to be 6'1,in shoes!. Ford may have been a strong 6' in his 20's - 40's, but most men do lose 1" or more by age 70, so he's 5-11 flat nowadays.

but yeah, Im 6 ft and 165-170, and 38-39" around the chest, and 32" around the waist, so its hard to see a guy much heavier than me with those proportions. But hey, 40 years ago a 175 lb 6 ft guy was 'leading man' material... nowdays you gotta be 220 , 6'3 and ripped.

Watching Kingdom of The Crystal Skull and I'm gonna say this...Not only is it a decent fourth installment but Ford looks every bit of 6ft throughout it

Yeah he can still look 6ft but often actors look taller in movies.

Brad Pitt is listed 180 cm. In "The devil's own" Ford looks about the same height as Pitt.
I'd say Harrison Ford was 184 cm in his prime, now about 180 cm !!!

Arches, in the first Indiana he looks 6ft-6ft0.5, in the second 'nd third movies he looks 6ft while in the last one he looks 5ft11.
In the raiders of the lost ark i would say he looked taller because he was very slim, however i never seen him at 6ft1.

I thought in frantic he could look near 6ft1 at times
James said on 4/Jan/14
A tall decent built man in his prime but next to pat roach he looked small

He was probably still at least a strong 6ft when making Patriot Games.

About 6ft.25-6ft.05 in patriot games. You could tell by that stage years of injuries took a toll on his height and posture which is why he might have looked 5'11ish in the movie at times. I also think ford was roughly 6ft.05 up until 1997 and then no higher than 183cm by the end of the 90 s.


184-185cm in the early 80s no doubt

So if Harrison Ford was only 180cm in Patriot games how tall was Sean Bean 5'8?

Well I was just saying 'proportionally' he looked 5'11. I'd say in 1992 when patriot games came ford would have 1.5 inches on 179-180cm Sean bean.


Funny u mention Sean bean at 5'8 because my dad spoke to a taxi driver who met Sean bean and the taxi guy described him as being "5ft8"
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
He does look 185cm in the Indian Jones films in the 80s.

If some articles say he was a little over six foot he was that height. He can look 185 in the first star wars but was really skinny back then. Peak 184 and now he is 180 maybe 181 but not 182

Yeah he does look like George Bush Jr type of body the 5'10.5 weak 5'11. Probably was 6'0.5 I never bought the 6'1 claim. Also I agree Eastwood wasn't 6'4 but a very strong 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/13
Rob, would it be safe to say that Ford began losing height in his 40s?
[Editor Rob: with the physical nature of his roles I believe he done some damage that led to earlier height loss.]
Spencer said on 9/Dec/13
I like this listing. He looks in between 6 and 6'1 in Star Wars. Fairly tall guy.
Maximus said on 8/Dec/13
Never struck me as being short....During Star Wars he appeared to be at least 6'....but then again he could have easily been 5'11"(which is not short..only 1 inch from being 6')...think about it.....I believe he wears shoes with heals in Star Wars and it probably gives him and added 1 to 2 inches in height.....so 5'11" becomes 6' to 6'1 very possible and easy explanation.
Balrog said on 26/Nov/13
I'd say 5'10.75" now and 6'0.5" at peak.
The Exorcist said on 25/Nov/13
Either David Blaine is a lot taller than 6'0", or Harrison Ford is a lot shorter than 5'11.5". There looks to be a BIG difference between them in this video.

seems very reasonable. Ford was a solid 6'0 now maybe 5'11.5 area
