James B, in 1977 Ford was listed in a magazine at a lean 165 lbs, 11 stone 11, and in "Raiders" his jacket he wore was a 38-40 (auctioned off), by 1993 in "The Fugitive" he was listed at 175 -180 lbs, or 12.5-13 stone. He's kept himself consistently in good shape.


Yeah he's quite muscular as well isn't he?

Rob how much do you reckon Harrison ford weighed at his peak? 13 stone?
[Editor Rob: yeah somewhere around that mark]

Looks 178cm in Paranoia
James B says on 1/Apr/14
He looked 6ft in the last crusade I'd say. In frantic looked close to 6'1.
John says on 1/Apr/14
I believe 185 at his peak, 187 in boots or big shoes. Back damage combined with being over 70 more like 182 now. People saying that he was 5'11" peak is just absurd.
Maio says on 30/Mar/14
I think in the last crusade he was 6 feet or 183 centimeters tall.
He looked close to Connery because Connery hadn0t good posture, however at the end, in a scenes Ford, Connery and Julian Glover, and Ford was clearly more than a good inche shorter than the others two. I think after a 6ft0.5/184 cm peak he lost more than an inche, but i don't think today he's shorter than 180...
It's difficult to me belive he's under that, like 5ft10 etc...
fa says on 22/Mar/14
Maybe hes flat 5'11" now, but peak is 6'0.5"
Peter says on 20/Mar/14
He is from 6'0 to 6'1. Accept it people, don't downgrade people because of your own insecurity.
Mary says on 18/Mar/14
Met him 1 year ago in a small club in Manhattan. He was with his bodyguard.
He was smaller than what i thought before.
I'm 5 foot 10 and he was as tall a me, perhaps just a bit taller
James B says on 16/Mar/14
Looked between medium-tall in working girl. In patriot games I'd say he looked 'tallish' so fairly over average but not a big amount.
Maio says on 15/Mar/14
If Ford is 182-183 cm today then Hemsworth will be like 195-6 cm...
I don't think so...i think 5ft11 as current height for HF is reasonable...
James B says on 13/Mar/14
Honestly in patriot games he struck me as looking 5'11 1/2. Maybe it was his posture I dunno? But I think around 1992 Harrison ford was closer to 6ft than 6'1. He looked 5'11 in working girl also. In the Indiana jones movies I'd say ford looked 184cm.
Seattlite says on 12/Mar/14
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
Lorne says on 6/Mar/14
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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Mar/14
I'd say Ford was 186-187cm out of bed in his prime.
Mugahot says 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

Maio says on 23/Feb/14
Yeah Lorne i think he was 186 cm out of Bed and 184 cm at Night, so a genuine 6ft0.5/184 cm.
I think 6ft0.75/185 cm is a bit overestimated...a genuine 6ft0.75 would be a bit taller than Harrison's peak...
Today no way he's taller than 5ft11/180 cm.
Lorne says on 19/Feb/14
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 says 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.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 17/Feb/14
Yeh, maybe just 6ft 0.5/184 cm is the better bet for his peak??
Maio says on 17/Feb/14
Chuckie Harrison was also listed 6ft (in a "fugitive" poster) and 5ft11 as Han Solo characters...
I think 6'nd 1/2 is the best shout.
I think Christensen was listed at first 6ft1.5 because he is slim and in 'life as house" in some scenes he was close to Kevin Kline...in the truth Kline was a good 1,5in/4 cm taller than Hayden, so Hayden could be a weak 6ft (182-183 cm)
Chuckie Cheese 2 says 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:
Click Here

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.
Rey says on 16/Feb/14
Harrison Ford was never over six feet.
Jordan says on 10/Feb/14
Harrison Ford is no taller than 5'10.5. Look at Robert Patrick ( 5'10.5" with Rob) and Harrison pictured below.

Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m says on 9/Feb/14
While most would argue that the Godfather or even Apocalypse Now is Coppola's finest film - The Conversation happens to be my favourite and right up there with my favourite all-time movies.
Alex says on 8/Feb/14
180cm nowadays and 192 for Hemsworth. Proof link - Click Here
Jake says on 7/Feb/14
Height in Star Wars & Indiana Jones: 6'0.5"
Height now at 71 years: 5'11" at best 5'11.25".
Arch Stanton says on 31/Jan/14
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.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 30/Jan/14
He actually looked close in height to Gene Hackman in 'the Conversation'. Maybe 1.5 inches between them max. He have a really restrained, cool performance in that classic film, too, one of his earliest roles. Have you seen Coppola's 'The Conversation', Rob? Great film
[Editor Rob: yeah I watched it last year after about 20 year gap, still a good movie.]
Chuckie Cheese 2 says 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.
Maio says on 26/Jan/14
realist, give me three pics where Ford looks taller than 5ft11/180 cm!
By the last years he never looked taller than 180 cm, also standing straight...
realist says on 24/Jan/14
Maio Harrison never stands up straight anymore look at his back ,every one else is ram rod straight ,where you can see harrisons hunched shoulders.
Maio says on 24/Jan/14
If Ford is today 5ft11.25/181 cm there will be less difference between him and Arnie (Click Here). Now, i think Arnie was a genuine 6ft1/185 cm at peak (same as me) but today he lost more than a good inche, so after a not particulary gard day he could be 181-182 cm (said 5ft11.75/182 cm being generous). In the pic he probably wore thicker shoes, but Ford is closer to the camera and Arnie is however taller...I would say Ford today is in the 179-180 cm...
Agree with the 6ft0.5/184 cm peak height.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 21/Jan/14
I think a solid 1.84 m/6ft 0.5in or even 6ft 0.75in at peak. Today he could be more 181 cm.
Spencer says on 20/Jan/14
Weak 6'1 Peak
Today 5'11.5
Maio says on 16/Jan/14
My opinion about "Indiana's height" is:

--- PEAK ---
Morning/Out of Bed: 6 ft 1.3 in/186,2 cm
Late Morning/Midday: 6 ft 0.9 in/185,1 cm
Afternoon: 6 ft 0.7 in/184,5 cm
Evening/Night: 6 ft 0.5 in/184,1 cm

--- TODAY ---
Morning/Out of Bed: 5 ft 11.5 in/181,5 cm
Late Morning/Midday: 5 ft 11.2 in/180,8 cm
Afternoon: 5 ft 11 in/180,3 cm
Evening/Night: 5 ft 10.8 in/179,8 cm
Maio says on 11/Jan/14
Sincerly, in the Crystal Skull he never looked a legit 6 footer...
He looks every 5ft11, no more or less...
And in the last years he looked that (180) also next to Others Actors, like Gary Oldman and Jim Sturgess.
James says on 9/Jan/14
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Jan/14
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.

Jesse Stone says on 7/Jan/14
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 says on 4/Jan/14
A tall decent built man in his prime but next to pat roach he looked small
James says on 4/Jan/14
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Jan/14
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 says on 1/Jan/14
He does look 185cm in the Indian Jones films in the 80s.

Maio says on 27/Dec/13
Sorry, I don't understand how can be possible that the articles in the newspapers could tell the truth...
First: if the article is not written by an interview with the actor, the height of actor is pure a subjective thing...in that case, Ford had slim figure and long legs so he could appear taller than what he really is in the truth.
Second: if the journalist asks the height to the actor, we never know if the actor tells the truth or not...

I think that the articles aren't a good source...the best sources are the pics took by a person whose height is known...like Rob...
berta says on 27/Dec/13
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
avi says on 24/Dec/13
@Maio says on 23/Nov/13
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 says 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 says on 9/Dec/13
I like this listing. He looks in between 6 and 6'1 in Star Wars. Fairly tall guy.
Maximus says 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.
Jake says on 29/Nov/13
I've met him four times, over 12 years, the last time 10 years ago. He was a tall man then, in his early 60s. I think he was 6'1", and I'm not usually wrong about heights, although he could have lost an inch since then.
Balrog says on 26/Nov/13
I'd say 5'10.75" now and 6'0.5" at peak.
The Exorcist says 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.

Maio says on 23/Nov/13
No avi, i think 5ft11.5 it's too much for him nowadays...
He's not over 5ft11, today...he never looked taller than that mark...
For sure he lost a good amount! I think when he was in his 20'-30'-40' he was a bit taller than 6ft, but not a full 6ft1...I think that 6ft0.5/184cm is really the best choice for Ford's peak...
avi says on 23/Nov/13
@Maio says on 20/Nov/13
seems very reasonable. Ford was a solid 6'0 now maybe 5'11.5 area
Maio says on 20/Nov/13
Realist, the truth is that Clint Eastwood never been a full 6 ft 4 in/193 cm.
He was in the 6-feet-3 range and then he lost around 2-2,5 in...yeah, it's too much but averagely people don't loose too much...at age of 71 they averagely lost 1-1,5 in max...
Infanct I said that Ford was at peak 184 cm and today 179-180 cm.
MD says on 18/Nov/13
He's lost quite a bit of height, though, I can't tell whether it's that, or if he's just permanently bent over. Because, he often looks little taller than 5'10", these days, and I'm not exaggerating for effect. Great actor, but he's aged pretty terribly.
realist says on 16/Nov/13
Maio, explain Clint Eastwoods current height then!
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 15/Nov/13
Peak height could've been 6ft 0.5in (184 cm), but no less. Today, strong 5ft 11in.
Maio says on 14/Nov/13
Realist, it's hard to me think that Ford could loss around 2in/5cm since late 70's...
Not because it's not possible but I don't think this is the case...
I think, instead he could be an hair above the 6ft mark when was young and today he's in the 5ft11/180 cm range...
realist says on 8/Nov/13
As I have stated before Harrison Ford in his younger years, before his back injury on the set of Temple of Doom was easily 6'1 you only have to watch some of his earlier work to realize that! But I admit now he is probably 5'11 flat the vagaries of age and his injuries.

JG says on 2/Nov/13
I just saw Harrison Ford yesterday on the upper east side of Manhatten. I almost bumped into him, he was that close. I'm 5'11 and he is no 6 feet. Not that anyone should care how tall he is but my perception has always been that he was considerably taller.
Paddie says on 25/Oct/13
Firstly, people do not realize that: from a medical point of view, you don't usually shrink as much as 1.5 - 2 inches. Doctors clearly state 1 inch is already a lot for someone to lose in his height by the elderly age.
Secondly, Click Here There's an inch of difference. Bradd Pitt has always been doubted as a 180 cm guy. It's very likely that he is a 178 cm guy ( his posture/body/short legs frame clearly advocate this opinion ).
Thirdly, as someone here mentioned already, Ford is around an inch shorter than Hauer in Blade Runner. Hauer has always been thought of as a strong 6-footer, possibly 6'0.5'' feet tall. Thus, it is more than obvious that Ford cannot have been taller than 6'0'' tall.
Conclusion, Ford is around 5'11.5 mark, while Pitt around 5'10''-5'10.5''.

If you see Blade Runner, you will notice Rutger Hauer who was 6'1" at the time is clearly taller than Ford. I do not think Ford was a full 6 feet in his prime, he was most likely 5'11". Regardless of his height, he has made millions.
Saito says on 15/Oct/13
Harrison Ford's character, Han Solo has been described as being 180 cm tall, which is about 5'11". I somehow do not think he was ever 6'1". I do not think his current height is 5'11. He was recently photographed with Arnold Schwarzenegger who is now 5'11" and Arnie was an inch taller. I think he is currently 5'10" as he stood at equal height to Daniel Craig.

Rob once you said that Harrison was taller than the Indiana Jones's stuntman, Vic Armstrong, Who was 6 ft...my question is: are you sure that Armstrong was 6ft at his peak?
I Saw a couple of pics and Ford was a bit taller but we're sure that Armstrong was 6 ft?!?!

i agree with Berta: 184 peak is spot!

[Editor Rob: 5ft 11 today is likely]
lakoda says on 5/Sep/13
he is 184 cmssharp
Maio says on 2/Sep/13
His current height is not over 5 ft 11 in. Sometimes he looks shorter but I think that the 180 cm range it's the best best choice. About his peak, I think he was for sure 6 ft, but I think that in his twenties he was 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm. probably he lost a bit more than the average, but I don't think he lost more than 1,5 in/4 cm and today he's not taller than 180 cm...

Lorne says on 25/Jul/13
Rob is right(big surprise) Ford is the kind of guy who would have started losing in his 40's. By afe 50 would have defiantly measured shorter, what with the abuse his body has taken. I think this listing is perfect, 184 is still arguable, but a weak 185cm is the "holy grail", and I will protect it till the end!!!
LuciusFox says on 24/Jul/13
Hei rob but if in an article they mentioned he was a little above the six foot how can you judge his height as six feet and 3/4? They should had written weak six foot one...
From the article that you mentioned it's much better something like six and 1/4 or an half...
[Editor Rob: it could cover 6ft 1/2 inch...Ford I think was losing height in early 40's]
Jamal says on 22/Jul/13
I think he was anything between 6'0 and 6'1.

I'm not even sure he hits 5'10" His body is definitely shrinking and he is not ageing well. I'm guessing around 5'9".
Maio says on 21/Jul/13
@Nat:
5 ft 10 in for Harrison Ford is ridicolous.
At his peak he wasn't less than 6 ft, for sure...I repeat, i guess 6 ft and 1/2 in it's the best choice for him...
Nat says on 21/Jul/13
Saw his costume from Star Wars in an exhibition. He is tiny. I'm 5ft 10 inch woman, his costume was in a raised cabinet. My guess, he was 5,10 in 1977 so smaller than that now. I was taken aback.
Maio says on 21/Jul/13
The holy grail plus the ark of the covenant, also with the Shankara stones, are 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm for Ford's peak, I believe
Maio says on 21/Jul/13
Sorry Lorne, but I think at first he never looked 185 cm and also he was closer to the 183 cm than 185 cm.
If you watch different movie of him you can see that he looks tall but not too tall, someone who was 6ft1 in 60-70-80's appeared averagely taller than now.
He had for sure slim figure and long legs but he never looked 185 cm.
In blade runner he was shorter than an honest 6ft1 Rutger Hauer, in 1989 looked no more than 6ft0 next to 6ft1.5 Sean Connery (was 58 so probably lost something) and 187 cm Julian Glover.
There're many actors who seems taller than their real height: for example Nick Nolte, when I saw for the first time 48 hrs I thought he was at least 6ft2, but in the truth he was 6ft0 in as he claimed...
Ford today never looks over 5ft11 and personally I don't know why Rob doesn't downgrade his current height. About his peak I think he was anything between 6ft and 6ft0.5, being generous I say 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm is fair for him but I think 185 cm is a bit overestimate.
Rey says on 20/Jul/13
I have seen him in L.A.--I don't think he was ever six one. In 2013 he is barely 5'10"1/2 he has lost a lot of height.
Lorne says on 19/Jul/13
I agree he could have been as low as 184cm, but he could look 6'1 as well. I too think 6foot0.75in is the holy grail; explains discrepancies, he was a weak 185cm. Today, looks flat 5'11 a lot, but could be 181cm.
Maio says on 18/Jul/13
sorry Lorne, but personally i never seen Harrison Ford as 185 cm how you like...
He's my favourite actor (both with Jack Nicholson) but i think he never looked over 6 ft 0.5 in...
I think with the most probability he was:

184 cm (60 % of chances)
183 cm (30% of chances)
185 cm (10% of chances)

About today, he looks a full 5 ft 11 in to me...
Lorne? says on 17/Jul/13
Yes!!! Thank you, Rob. I love Harrison Ford, but have been waiting for you to put him at the "holy grail" of 6ft0.75in for a while. Wasn't sure if you would bother with the 0.25in, yet didn't want him at 184cm, but you pulled through. 6ft0.75 just seems right for him! Perfection!!! Seriously though, good call Rob.
Maio says on 17/Jul/13
rob, any chance for you he was just 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm instead the 6 ft 0.75 in that you signed?
Lorne says on 17/Jul/13
LOL at the holy grail, Rob. And 6ft0.75 is perfect, spot on, Rampage/Jake. Today, you could argue 180-181cm range, but saying 5'11 is simpler, he's 70 so will hit 180cm soon enough...
[Editor Rob: I am actually going to go with the 0.75 for him now.]
Maio says on 15/Jul/13
@ rampage

"Peak height was 6 ft 0.5 in (184 cm)"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 15/Jul/13
What do you mean, Rob?
[Editor Rob: his peak could be just under 6ft 1, that could be the answer, the 'holy grail' to what his peak was.]
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 14/Jul/13
Peaked at 6ft 0.75in (1.85 m). Today: 5ft 11.25in
FACE says on 14/Jul/13
Peak: 6'0.5/184 cm but wore boots in 'Star Wars' and 'Indiana Jones'
Now: 5'11/180 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Jul/13
He could look 6ft0.5 or 6ft1.

"Peak height was 6ft 0.75in (185cm)"
[Editor Rob: just under 6ft 1 might be the holy grail for harrison's peak]
Lorenz says on 4/Jul/13
rob, in this pic with Jim Sturgess he looks shorter than him: they're at the same level but Harrison is straight whil Sturgess is not, so probably if they're straight both, Jim Sturgess is taller.
Now, or Sturges is 6/0+ (but i'm agree with you he's an hair under 6/0) or Ford is less than 5/11.

Click Here

Possible today 5/11 spot for him? He looks it very much?
[Editor Rob: he looks more and more 5ft 11 range yeah]
Maio says on 1/Jul/13
He's max 5 ft 11 in today! He looks a weak 180 cm next to a legit 5ft9/175 Gary Oldman Click Here
teej says on 28/Jun/13
He still looks over 6 foot today, id say he's 184cm and at peak he was my height 186cm
Lorne says on 28/Jun/13
Harrison Ford's Height is 5ft11/180cm. Peak Height was 6ft0.75/184.5-185cm. I think 6ft0.75 is perfect for Ford. You could argue 6ft0.5 or 6ft1(184-185cm range), however, I think it's clear he was never a strong 6ft1 guy, yet I think he was very close when he was younger. Personally I believe the injuries to his body caused him to start losing height early. Though he could have easily been 184cm peak, I think a weak 185cm is fair. Today, he has lost a significant amount of height. At best, he's 181cm, but I doubt he's over 5'11 evening. So there is my evaluation of a legends height. Thanks!!!
? says on 22/Jun/13
In the last ? Indiana Jones he looks just a bit taller than Shia le beof (spelling?) , but that can be strange camera angels
Maio says on 21/Jun/13

with Billy Dee Williams and Ewan Mcgregor

with Sean Connery and Julian Glover (1989) and Tom Hanks

And with Kevin Kline

Sincerly rob, i think 5 ft 11 in is perfect for him nowadays, while i think he was an hair over 6ft but shorter than 6ft1 in his youth, maybe 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm. It's possible for you?
Realist says on 21/Jun/13
Harrison Ford was defo before his back injury 6'1 ,
Or Carrie Fisher is 4'11 and Mark Hamill is about 5'4 lol you only have to watch any of his late 70s or early 80s films Harrison was at least 6'0.
Maio says on 17/Jun/13
I think Ford when played Indiana in the last crusade was 6 ft 0 in, because he was 47 and perhaps he lost something...in that occasion he didn't look taller than that mark. In the fugitive (1993) there's a pic where he is 6 ft 0.5-75 max, but he wore shoes and if you see the scene where he was in jail he wore thick shoes: he was between 5ft11.75-6ft barefeet, I'd say...
About Tommy lee Jones, I think today is less than 5ft 11.5, how rob listed. I don't think he's much more than 5ft11, however i believe when he wa young he was of course in the 6ft range: he hasn't got a tall figure but he's quit tall!
ken says on 16/Jun/13
Yes i thought of the end of the Fugtuve where you can see tomy lee jones looks up to Harrison ford and he doesn't even stands straight, so there was 1 2 cm between them, so 184 5 is ok for him that day, now its possible he is just 180
Maio says on 14/Jun/13
Ken, i think Harrison Ford looked tall but not too tall in his youth. I think he was at his maximum peak very close to the 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm mark, while nowadays he's no more than 5 ft 11 in/180 cm.
In the Fugitive he stands near Tommy Lee Jones (who was anywhere in the 5ft11.75-6ft0.5) only at the end and they look in the same range (very very close). In 1989, when HF played Indiana Jones in the last crusade, he looked around 1+ in shorter than Sean Connery, who was 60 so probably lost a small amount from his original 6 ft 2 in (i guess he was 6ft 1.5in). In 2012, at the age of 70, he looked much shorter than his young days...i think he lost more than a good inche and he looks very close to the 5 ft 11 in (look him next to Daniel Carig and Ewan McGregor)...Definetly i think editor Rob should change his heights:

Peak: 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm
Today: 5 ft 11 in/180 cm
ken says on 13/Jun/13
at peak he was very tall like 186, i think he saved his height still in the air force one he looked pretty tall or in the fogitive he was a bit taller than tomy lee jones, perhaps 184-5, after that he seened loosing height, with 191-3 paul bettany in firewall he looked 182, perhaps 183, nowadays i think he is again a bit shorter but still not a short guy, i would go with a strong 181 but minimum 180, he still looks strictly taller then 178 guys
ken says on 13/Jun/13

Brad says on 8/Jun/13
Figure in back problems for decades and the not standing up straight. As listed.
Realist says on 7/Jun/13
watch Air Force One with both Oldman and Ford,
Harrison is easily 3-4 inches taller than him in that film.
No Way! says on 6/Jun/13
He's in a new film with Gary Oldman (5' 9") who towers over Ford.
Maio says on 6/Jun/13
At the end of the story, i'd say:

Peak: 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm
Today: 5 ft 11 in/180 cm
Terry says on 5/Jun/13
A weak 6ft. To me he looked about 5'11 in Star wars but deffo no shorter than that.
fa says on 28/May/13
His younger days: 182cm (nearly 6ft)
Today: 180cm (5ft11 flat)
Rashid says on 21/May/13
Thats strange I never thought he was 6'1", according to my star wars top trump deck it listed his character (Han Solo) at 1m80 and Mark Hamil (aka Luke Skywalker) at 1m72. I guess it make sense because Ford never towered mark in the star wars films, so I guess he's been wearing boots to boost him 1 inch or 2 the whole time back the 80's. even in the 2008's Indiana Jones film he looked 2 inches taller than Shia Labouef (who is listed 5'9"). So I think he's just 5'11" no more than that
Marvin Rainwater says on 17/May/13
Rob, maybe you should consider downgrading Mr. Ford to 5 ft 11 nowadays, and 6 6 ft 0 - 1/2 inch peak (1 m, 84). In the '93 film "The Fugitive" the 51 year old Ford was an even 6 ft 1 with his shoes on, and if we subtract 2/3 or 1 full inch, Mr Ford was 6 ft 0 or 6 ft 1/3 inch tall at age 51. According to Dr. Hall's chart here Click Here most white men do not lose any perceptible amount of height between age 20 and 50, yet by age 70 they can lose 1 to 2 inches. It is very possible Ford was a full 6 ft 1 in the morning, in his 20's, 30's and 40's. But he seems a full two inches shorter now, which is consistent with a man of his age (almost 71).
Theo says on 9/May/13
He looks significantly shorter than Chadwick Boseman in 42 who claims to be 6' even. Perhaps this was done purposely to make Chadwick look bigger or HFs character more like his real-life counterpart?
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 7/May/13
I think either 6ft 0.75in or 6ft 0.5in was his height at peak. Perhaps just 184 cm. Today: 181 flat.
Dmeyer says on 4/May/13
6'0.5 peak 5'11 now is closer rob
miko says on 30/Apr/13
Rob I'm thinking he might just be a flat 5'11 in 2013?
[Editor Rob: he is starting to look closer to 5ft 11 a lot of the time]
SantaMonica says on 29/Apr/13
I see lots of celebs around here. Saw him in a local Starbucks. I'd say 5'10" or 5'11". He was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt, by the way, and somewhat unshaven. Looks his age.
Jane says on 28/Apr/13
He looks as tall as Asa here Click Here

Asa recently told that he's around 5'10
kevin says on 26/Apr/13
on craig ferguson he looked more like 180-181cm. also peak may have been only 184cm.

Ford's definitely under 6ft.

Rob, he definitely looks 4 inches shorter than Liam Hemsworth (6ft 3?) in stills of their new film 'Paranoia'. 5ft 11-11.25 today and maybe 6ft0.5/75 peak??
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Mar/13
Looked a weak 6ft1 in Blade Runner with 6ft1.5-6ft2 Rutger Hauer but weirdly enough appeared 6ft1.5 in Working Girl.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 11/Feb/13
I think Ford was 6ft/6ft 0.25 or so around 2000 in 'What Lies Beneath'.
crusintheatl says on 27/Jan/13
In Blade Runner (1982) he looks only 182cm. I don't know about 6'1" perhaps 184cm. Whatever his height actually is looks good on him. His body would look off if he was any taller or shorter.
Steve says on 10/Jan/13
Right.I was on holiday in Sicilly and was sitting next to Harrison Ford in a restaurant in Cefalu. When it came to paying the bill he got up and I was standing near him. He had shorts and sandals on and stood about an inch and a half taller than me and I am 5'9" tall. I was surprised how much smaller he looked in real life after seeing him in movies over the years. But unhappily we all shrink as the years go by and for a man of around 70 years old he looked pretty good.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 5/Jan/13
Peak: 186 cm out of bed, 184 cm end of day.

Illustratedkid says on 13/Dec/12
Harrison hurt his back during Temple of Doom, and had to have surgery. He was never as tall afterward. No way he is over 6 in Regarding Henry
Jake: 182.9 cm -- 183.5 cm says on 24/Nov/12
Peak height: 6ft 0.5in (184 cm)
Current height: 5ft 11.25in (181 cm)

Maybe 6' 0.75" at peak, although I'm unsure.
Bruno says on 23/Nov/12
Doubt if he was 6'1'' peak, looking at Patriot Games(1992) and standing toe to toe with James Fox he looked at least 1'' lower. James Fox is listed at 6'1''.
aabbcc says on 17/Nov/12
I think he slouches a lot now that hes older hes still 6 ft
James says on 12/Nov/12
He looked 180 or 181cm compared too Daniel craig
John says on 11/Nov/12
There's just no way in hell he's 5ft11.5...I just saw a pic of him with Daniel Craig, and Craig is standing taller by a half inch. Craig is about 5'8, so even with lifts, it's hard to imagine he'd be taller.
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 10/Nov/12
A good case can be made for a downgrade of his peak, but after the Daniel Craig photos his current height should be downgraded no doubt.
miko says on 7/Nov/12
He's looking hunched around the neck area of late. I'm thinking he might be 5'11 flat now.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 4/Nov/12
More likely 184 than 185 at peak, taller than 6'0 but not quite 6'1, Kevin Costner is a classic example of a real 6'1.
Realist says on 3/Nov/12
Lol just watch Star Wars or Force 10 from Navarone and compare him to Robert Shaw in his earlier movies he was defo 6'1.
James says on 31/Oct/12
He's been 6ft since the mid 80's

Is there a picture were harrison looking over 6 ft 0-0.25 , i have never seen one at 60 hé looked 182 alot lately 180-181 and 20 years Back around 183 cm but i never have seen look 184-185cm , in the movie hé did With Pitt hé seemed 6 ft and was near peak
Dmeyer says on 30/Oct/12
Rob whi do you think 6'1 Back in indiana jones hé was noticably shorter than 6'1.5 at that Time connery hé looked more 6'0-0.5 in peak i have never seen him apear over 183 but 184cm is likely today hé is at most 181cm but CAN look 182cm 5-7 years Back , 6'0.5 peak and 5'11.25 now will ne much closer
Dmeyer says on 24/Oct/12
To me this Guy was never more than 184cm and today 180.5cm was near 182cm 5-10 years ago
James says on 22/Oct/12
He probably stands at 5'11 a lot of the time cause of back problems but if he stood better he would be 6ft. Its like how clint Eastwood stands taller with better posture.

Do u agree rob that it might just be his posture making him look 5'11.
Aragorn 5\'11 says on 20/Oct/12
He's definitely 5'11 nowadays. He's 5 inches shorter than Jeff Goldblum (6'4). And he isn't that much taller than Daniel Craig. At his peak he might have been 6'0 or 6'1.
kevin says on 18/Oct/12
if i had to bet my money on fords height i would guess solid 184cm peak and 181cm today.
James says on 11/Oct/12
Editor Rob says on 11/Oct/12
There's a good shout he might have been 184cm, at least 2 articles 10 years apart mentioned him being a touch or little over 6 foot...he might have said it one point himself.

Is a peak height down grade on the cards in the next few days rob?

i'm sure he's 5ft11/180cm nowadays...i'm not sure about his peak, however...
i always thought he was a real 6ft, however in his first movies he looked quite tall, so there's a little percentage he was around 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm...i'm sure he was never 6ft0.75-1/185 cm...

Peak: 6 ft 0 in/183 cm (maybe 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm)
Today: 5 ft 11 in/180 cm
Bojan says on 17/Sep/12
I think you should really downgrade his height. He is 5 ft 11 max today. And he is more than inch shorter than Arnold, who is max 6 ft tall.
bodwaya says on 11/Sep/12
he was 1 inche taller then 5 foot 11 jared harrins in extraordinary measures. he is 6 foot

If Harrison Ford (peak), Kevin Costner, Keanu Reeves, David Schwimmer etc stood together I reckon you could lay a big ruler flat across!!
Shaun says on 9/Sep/12
Looks same height on screen in prime as to how Kevin Costner looks, 60'5-6'1" fine estimate I think. Noadays increasingly looking 5'11"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Sep/12
Looks 186-187cm in Working Girl with Sigourney Weaver. Probably the shoes he wore

6'0.75 peak
5'11.25 now

Looks a fraction over 5'11 now,he didn't do too bad, he lost only 1.5 inches at 70y, Arnold lost the same amount and is 5 years younger.

HellBoundPower says on 9/Feb/12
Looking at the picture with Ford with Daniel Craig, it's pretty apparent looking at his footwear that Daniel Craig is wearing lifts. The arch of his foot it much too high to be wearing normal dress shoes, whereas Ford is wearing normal dress shoes. Ford is still slightly taller than him, putting him at around 6'0.5" in dress shoes, making him about 5'11.5" barefoot today. I believe the height listed here, 6'1" peak, 5'11.5" today.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m says on 27/Jan/12
He's really struggling to look over 5" 11, I'm thinking 180.5 cm today.
Ford fan says on 26/Jan/12
At his prime he was 185.5 centimetres!
Byron T. says on 25/Jan/12
It's odd, Harrison Ford used to be taller than Billy Dee Williams in the Star Wars films, now they're both the same height. He's definitely in the 5'11'' range today.
