Comment on the Height of Jeff Goldblum

the shredder said on 16/Nov/15
Can someone explain why he looks 6'6 with Elliot?
Dingus said on 21/Oct/15
6'04.25" peak is very good. He must have been at least 1/8 inches above the 6'04" mark. However I doubt he is below 6'04", whenever he is near someone of that height he always edges them out, however slightly.
James B said on 13/Oct/15
Hard to believe he would have had near 1.5 inches once on chris hemsworth
Judd ISR said on 13/Sep/15
You tjink it might be more safely to say "peak at 6'4" and current height at 6'3.5""?
Also if in 80s-90s and at the beginning of 00's he did look to me more 194 cms than 193 cms...
Judd ISR said on 10/Sep/15
rob, until now i never doubt about his peak and current height but recently i've seen a couple of pictures of him with Liam Hemsworth (6'3") where he does look more 6'3" than a weak 6'4":

You think that it's just a camera's effect or he might be actually 190-191 cms today (considering that probably he has a small shoes advantage on Liam)?
[Editor Rob: he could be around 6ft 3 at times with maybe a bit looser posture at his age.]
LoganNoll1996 said on 16/Aug/15
That video of him with Conan O'Brian makes me feel as if he was 6'4.5 at his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/15
194cm solid at less
Gerry said on 5/Jul/15
In Invasion of the bodysnatchers Donald Sutherland asks Jeffs character what his height is he replies '6-4 and 170lbs' i believe Goldbum was a legit 6-4" guy probably 6-4.5 easily as well and probably morning time 6-5. He looks every bit of it in The Fly
Dejavu said on 3/Jul/15
Liam hemsworth looked taller than him today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/15
Rob, do you think Goldblum edged out Neeson at their peaks?
[Editor Rob: I think it would be very hard to tell without measuring them. At times Goldblum could pull off over 6ft 4 look more than Neeson I believe, but looking at some 80's films and early 90's with Liam, he looked a big 6ft 4 lad.]
Joe said on 29/Jun/15
HE's clearly taller than Conan o´Brien: Click Here
Judd ISR said on 12/Jun/15
look at him next to D'Onofrio! Jeff was visibly taller so at least 2 cms...
i think D'Onofrio could be anything under 6'3.25" today so 6'3.75-4" is fair for Jeff. Here with a flat 6'4" Conan: Click Here
Celebheights 6'1.75 said on 11/Jun/15
How come he looks more than 3 inches taller than Morgan Freeman? If anything, he towers over him.
Linda61 said on 9/Jun/15
I thought he would be taller. Then again, we have so many tall people here he would disappear in the crowd.
Shane said on 31/May/15
Just saw him at the airport, he may have a casual posture but he is easily 6'4" if not a bit over. He was next to a friend of mine who is 6'2 1/2 and was solidly taller than my friend.
Judd said on 14/May/15
i think 6'4.25" for Goldblum at peak is fair, don't know if he was solidly 194 cms, but i think for sure 6'4.25". I believe that if measured both, Jeff would have been a tad taller than legits 6'4" like Jared Padalecki, David Hasselhoff, Christopher Reeve or Adam Baldwin.
Sam said on 13/May/15
Would be interesting to have gotten a comparison between Goldblum and Quaid in Independence Day but I wouldn't blame Goldblum for not wanting to stand anywhere near Quaid today!
The Exorcist said on 12/May/15
I think Jeff could have been as tall as 6'4.5" at peak, and just rounded down to 6'4" because he didn't want to make a big deal about it. Most people would claim more.

With 6'5" Vince Vaughn.

James B says on 8/May/15
Actually Judd saw Independence Day last night and he did look 194cm in that film however I did think randy quaid and Adam Baldwin gave a taller impression.

james, i think you cannot teach anything to me about independence day because i have watched it a lot of times...much more than you.
in fact there are no scenes where quaid meets goldblum and just in one scene (when the group goes into the bunker, area 51) baldwin and goldblum appear both, but they aren't close one to each other...
Please, you maybe should watch again it, because Goldblum is much taller than all everybody's that he meets in that movie (Judd Hirsch, Bill Pullman, Margaret Colin, Robert Loggia, James Rebhorn...).
Look at him next to Will Smith, in a couple of scenes he look like more than 3" taller than him, considering that Smith wore private's boots which gain i think at least 1-1,5"...

Judd said on 5/May/15
James, are you sure that in ID he did look 6'3.5"?
Actually he had at 3" (and sometimes even a bit more) on Will Smith and Bill Pullman, and towered on Judd Hirsh (probably at times close to 5'11").
One year later, in 1997, he portrayed again his character in Jurassic Park - the lost world, and he did look close in height to Vince Vaughn (6'4.75").
I think at times he was an honest 6'4-4.25", considering he wasn't yet 50.
James B said on 16/Mar/15
In Independence Day looked 6'3 1/2 however in the lost world looked genuinely 6'4 but he wore heels in that film.

his posture in independence day was not great
S.J.H said on 2/Mar/15
More like 6'4.5 peak (6'4.75 on a good day)

Now 6'4 flat
Lorne said on 28/Feb/15
Haha! On July 21st, 2013 I called this one! I said 6ft3.75 now, 6ft4.25 peak. Once again, perfect listing Rob!
James B said on 17/Feb/15
Looked a flat 6'4 to me in his early movies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/15
Looked 194-195cm in The Fly and Jurassic Park
James said on 11/Feb/15
Not over 6'4 peak
Judd said on 21/Jan/15
Ajax says on 10/Jan/15
Was just behind him and his wife in the airport security line. He was very tall -- I would venture to guess he is a bit over 6ft4, possibly a full 6'5.

A close friend of my parents met him in NYC years ago and they thought the same thing: they still believe he was 6'5"! IMO 6'4.25" is the best listing!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jan/15
In that picture with Gould he looks 194cm.

Rob, check out this one!! Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 30/Dec/14
Well, there is a case for 186 for Will Smith so Goldblum at 6'4.25 and Smith at 6'1.25 might make sense. As Rampage says though I think 6'4.5" would by no means be a stretch at peak, see him with Geena Davis in heels for instance. A 194 listing is much better though.
Bishop said on 29/Dec/14
This listing is more accurate for sure.
sixfooter said on 28/Dec/14
6'4 & he's aged well, which makes me doubt if he's aged well which makes me doubt that he's lost height. It's only when you're older when you appreciate things like being super tall, as a kid not so much.At 15 I was taller than all my classmates & it looked awkward talking to girls my age, but very small lol
Mike said on 28/Dec/14
6ft 4.25-4.5in peak
6ft 3.5-3.75in today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Dec/14
I'd have gone with the full 6ft4½ peak and 6ft4 flat today.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Dec/14
Yey there you go! Seems about right now.
Über Wench said on 25/Dec/14
Crap. I'm 6'3"... What the hell do you mean "at peak"?!
Judd said on 25/Dec/14
Thank you rob! As i repeat people who i Know met time ago and thought he was 6'5"...
Of course 6'5" is out of question but a very strong 6'4" is the best choice for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/14
Looks 6ft5 with Elliot Gould.

Rob, any chance of giving him 6ft4½ peak?
[Editor Rob: a strong 6ft 4 is always a possible peak. Big Khalid met him, I'm not sure he looked a big 6ft 4 guy with him though!]
Jeffery said on 20/Dec/14
Looked at least 6'5" next to Matt LeBlanc on Friends.
Mike said on 16/Dec/14
And don't forget the TV show Law & Order!
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/14
Rob can you add a photo and films like The Big Chill, Earth Girls Are Easy and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou? Click Here Still looks tall as hell, in fact he looks 194-95 still in that photo anyway.
Mike said on 8/Dec/14
Strong 6ft 4 peak.
James D said on 17/Nov/14
In the scene from independence day where he's walking across the desert next to Will Smith, Jeff seems to tower over him. Will is apparently 6'2".
Judd said on 14/Nov/14
as i said before a close friend of my parents met him when jeff was still young and said he thought he was 6'5" need to consider that this man was at peak 6'1" for sure and he felt "quite short" next to jeff...
now, 6'5" is too much, but i'll bet he was 6'4.25" at peak!
James B said on 11/Oct/14
Yeah closer to 6'4.5 than 6'3.5 at his peak
Judd said on 11/Oct/14
he was at least 6'4" with a good chance of 6'4.25".
he always looked taller than a lot of tall guys from different height range like 6'3 (vince d'onofrio, liev schreiber), 6'2 and 6'1 (kevin kline, william hurt, will smith, bill pullman...).
i starting to realize that he maybe dropped a 1/4th inche when he claimed his height...
for sure he looked closer to 6'4.25" than 6'3.75"
James B said on 28/Sep/14
Schreiber could be 6'2.5

Compared to Sutherland jeff looked 6'4-6'5.
Sam said on 25/Sep/14
Agreed he could have been 194 cm at peak. In Spinning Boris with Liev Schreiber, he could seem around 4 cm taller. They look a little closer to each other in height here but Schreiber's closer to the camera.

6'4.25 in the 90s
6'3.75 today
the shredder said on 17/Aug/14
Rob , do you agree he looks 6'3 at best with Khalid ?
[Editor Rob: it is harder to say how much either was losing in height...I would have guessed Goldblum looked to be losing more height (his legs might be a bit loose) but I don't know, today he could be a bit less than the 90's of course.]

Sorry 3 inches on Will Smith and Pullman, not 2!

Yeah your right I think he looked around 6'4 in independence day, will smith and bill Pullman did not really look over 6'1 in the film though. Adam Baldwin also looked 6'4 as well.

Randy quaid looked the tallest. Looked not far of 6'5 in the movie.

James B says on 25/Mar/14
In Independence Day looked 6'3 (191cm) about the same sought of size as James reborn. In the fly as well I'd say he looked more 6'3.

And he had an easy 3 inches on Will Smith. When has he ever looked under 6'4" on screen??

I guess it can be tough telling apart 6'4 and 6'3 guys on screen?

I'll watch The Tall Guy later and give my two cents.

In the lost world Jeff looked 6'4 1/2 but then he was wearing heeled shoes, wearing all black and is very slim
Gonzalo said on 27/Mar/14
He looks 1`93 in every movie I have seen. the odd thing is he didn´t look over 1`90 when I saw him in the flesh in 2005, outside a Broadway Theater. I guess I had ground advantage or he wasn´t standing straight. My cousin is 1`94 and Goldblum did not look as tall as him to me that day. As Glenn once said one encounter is not enough to judge someone´s height.
James B said on 25/Mar/14

However I'd say he looked 6'4 in many of his movies and was taller than Donal Sutherland so 193-194cm peak.
berta said on 5/Feb/14
194 at peak. maybe still is but probably 193 now
Lenad is sexy said on 10/Jan/14
any chance he was 194cm peak rob?

Viking said on 10/Jan/14
6 4 thats it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/14
Rob, is 6ft4.5 peak a good shout?

I'm beginning to lean toward 194-195cm peak after watching Jurassic Park. Really not much between him and 196cm Vince Vaughn in and I'm confident he'd edge out Liam Neeson and Conan O'Brien.
jordydecke said on 7/Jan/14
just watching him in The Switch (2010) if Jason Bateman is 5'11 then Goldblum looks to be around 6'3 now unless Bateman is wearing lifts of course. However at his peak in Death Wish (which I re-watched the other day) he looks 6'4 and a bit easily!
Ud191cm said on 10/Nov/13
Nothing over 6'4 flat he is.He's got a very small head for a 6'4 guy and long neck so he gives a taller impression and also in the fly(1986) he was only about 4 inches taller than geena davis when they both were barefoot after they make love.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Oct/13

He looked about 0.5 inch taller than Conan.

I always knew he was a tall guy but didn't know he was as much as 6'4 seeing him in the Fly.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/13
Edged out Conan and looked pretty similiar to Vince Vaughn and Craig Kilnborn.

Legit 194cm peak.
Ian C. said on 2/Oct/13
Are we really sure about this business of getting shorter with age? I'm the same age as Jeff Goldblum and the same height, and I measured my height a few weeks ago, which is the first time I've done that since I was nineteen, and I'm the same height now as I was then, even though just about everything else about me has changed considerably. Also, can you really tell anybody's height to the nearest inch without actually measuring them? That seems a little fanciful.
DB Cooper said on 21/Sep/13
has always looked taller than conan and other 6'4-even men. 6'4.5 peak.
Lurk said on 2/Sep/13
Nowadays 6'3. Probably 6'4 at peak height. He looked shorter than Conan, and was easily shorter than Jermey Clarkson.
Lorne said on 21/Jul/13
He was on Conan recently, and I'll be damned if Conan didn't look just a tad taller. I actually agree with Mr R, he's Lost a cm or so within 4-5 years... Still tough one to age. My official estimate has to be 6ft4.25in peak, 6ft3.75in now, standing tall I think he is still very close to 6'4, though 6'3.5 is a possibility.
Mr. R said on 6/Jun/13
I hung out with him tonight at a jazz club in hwood. He has lost a little. He is closer to 6-3 now.
Balrog said on 26/May/13
I agree with most comments, he was over 6'4'' at his peak and now he's 60 years old he lost a quarter of an inch or maybe half. Still looks close to 6'4''.
Lenad is sexy said on 28/Apr/13
he was barely shorter than Vince Vaughn in the lost world. Pheraps Vaughn isn't quite 6'5
Lorne? said on 31/Mar/13
Why did you take the half inch off? 6ft4.5 peak isn't unreasonable at all, he is/was taller than Vince d'onorfio
James said on 16/Feb/13
He looks 6'8 or 6'9 next too Laurence.

A young Jeff Goldblum would have measured 197cm out of bed so 6'4.25 or 6'4.5 peak. In 2013 6'3.5 is possible?
Klaus said on 15/Feb/13
Alongside Laurence Fishburne, who is a tall man (183/184 cm), Jeff seems to be about 10 cm higher than Laurence, so its average height is between 192 cm to 194 cm. Surely if Jeff Goldblum when young were measured lying down in the morning hours, the length of his body would be 196 cm or more.

He's still at least 6ft4, IMO.
James said on 13/Nov/12
He looked 6'5-6'6 in some pics with Donald Sutherland from invasion of the body snatchers... with slouched posture next too Sutherland goldblum still looked a solid 6'4.5. However with Vince Vaughn Jeff looked barely 6'4.

It could be more of case of Sutherland being under 192cm peak?

I saw him on the late late show with craig ferguson and he had a few inches on him. 6 foot 4. Craig said he was really tall. Didn't someone say he was taller than conan?
James said on 5/Oct/12
Yeah if Vince Vaughn was truly 6'5 then Jeff looked a solid 6'4.5 back in 1997 and looked 194cm range with 6'1-6'2 will smith. These days though I'd imagine he would measure in at 6'3.5.

Rob so do you think now since he is virtually 60 he might not measure over 192cm?

"Peak height was 6 ft 4.5 in (194cm)"
Likewise for Hasselhoff and Seagal. Today 0.5in shorter

Khalid says on 24/Jul/12
I met Jeff Goldblum 3 weeks ago, I took a photo with him standing, I just compared his height with my photo with Jason Momoa, and it turned out that they both have the same height. Jeff Goldblum is definitely 6 ft 3 in.

Well Mamoa is taller than 6'3", clearly taller than Chris Hemsworth and I would never state a height estimate ever to be "definite" unless you actually measure them and even then height fluctuates throughout a day. 6'4.5" peak for Goldblum is likely, certainly a strong 6'4", three inches on Will Smith, at least 4 inches on Geena Davis etc.
mimi said on 17/Aug/12
I stood next to Jeff Goldblum in a deli once 20 years ago. I am 5'6" (female) and he is VERY tall. Definitely 6'4". My brother is 6'5" and he was clearly in that range. He was very goodlooking in person. Beautiful skin (granted, this was a while ago). Long legs and arms.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/12
Looks 6ft4(193cm) today. But 15 years ago was definitely near 6ft5.
Peak height was 6ft4.5(194cm). Just watch Jurassic Park.

Vince Vaughn is very tall, around 6'4" or so. Jeff Goldblum looks taller than him the third Jurassik Park film. Plus, I just saw Jeff on a rerun of The Jamie Kennedy Experiment and Jamie said Jeff was 6'5". I believe it.
Korben said on 8/Oct/07
Ok so i was very board and decided to do some comparsing with 2 of my favortie actors, jeff goldblum and adam baldwin. Using their side by sides with will smith, I know this isint perfect, but it pretty much pits them at excactly the same height. Goldblum MIGHT be like 0.5-1 cm taller but his hair is bigger so its harder to tell where his head is, where as baldwins army hair cut is much easier.

"Goldblum 6'3"?? No way, nowadays he is still a solid 6' "The Tall Guy" he looks even 6'4.5! He looks about 25cm taller than Emma Thompson there. She's is listed mostly at 5'7 and somewhere at 5'8. No way Jeff shorter than 6'4...likely 6'4.25!
Viper said on 18/Aug/07
Ive seen descriptions of 6-3 before for him, but he looks taller than that.
James said on 17/Aug/07
In Death Wish Jeff did look around 6ft4 maybe a smidge under maybe he did not quite do all his growing when the film was made?
James said on 16/Aug/07
Anonymous are you talking about Jeff or Vince?
Anonymous said on 16/Aug/07
Always stated as being 6'4'', always looked 6'4''.
James said on 15/Aug/07
ras, Vince could very well be 6ft4ish rather than his 6ft5 claim. I have never been totally convinced that he looks a solid 6ft5 esspecially in his films or at premiers. He looked similar in height to Will Ferrel and about the same size as Jeff Goldblum in Jurrasik Park so I am not really sure about this guy. That said there has already been discussion on this page that Jeff wore healed boots throughut that film which may have slightly increased his height, I will have to watch the movie again?
ras said on 14/Aug/07
There was a pic of Jeff next to Vince Vaughn in a red carpet event posted by someone in this site, he barely looked shorter, like if Vince is 6 ft 5 then Goldblum must be 6 ft 4 at least.
AAAA said on 12/Aug/07
I think he was 6'4.5 and may have lost a half inch or a little less now
James said on 31/Jul/07
Editor Rob
I was just on youtube and I saw a video of Jeff Goldblum on this T.V program where he set's up a group of men in their 20's where Jeff his advertising his fake new product or something like that. Anyway to the point halfway through the video Jeff is at the piano and Goldblums assistant starts singing along with him and Jeff's friend qoutes "The 6ft5 New York Jew". 6ft5 does make sense well at least in his youth because loads of people pointed out that he was the same size as Vince in Jurrasic Park give or take a cm. So peak height 6ft4.5 to 6ft5 now in 2007 6ft4 it makes sense becuse in most pictures or films I have seen him in looks over 193cm.
James said on 30/Jul/07
Dee I really think Jeff might be a bit more than 6ft4. I mean did you see the scenes in Independence Day with him and Will Smith, there looked a 3 and a half inch difference and thats being generous to Will. In jurrasik Park 2 he looked very even with Vince Vaghun who is 6ft5 although that said there have been some on disscussions on this page that Jeff wore shoes with heels in that film but that might not be true. And Editor Rob just look at the picture of Jeff stood next to Bill Pullman who is almost 6ft2 and you will see that there is a 3 inch difference if not more so either upgrade Jeff or downgrade Pullman?

I come from a family of tall folk so believe me when I say it that Jeff is every bit of 6' 4". I know the scence that in the fly that James was speaking of. There is also a scene, though, where Gina stands next to Jeff in bare feet. You can see there is at least a 4" difference in their height. Whether he's 6' 4" or more matters less to me because I think he is hot all the way around. Yup! I said Jeff is hot. It's that quirky, smart, talented thing. . .oh and those fabulous pecs that he must show in like, every moive he makes. Yeah, he's 54 but he's still got it!
James said on 27/Jul/07
Yeah I was about to say that there is a picture of him stood next to Murray where Jeff looks about 4 inches taller. If Jeff was 6ft4 then he would only look 3 inches taller so either Goldblum is more than 193cm or Murray is under 6ft1. I personally would put my money on Murray being 6ft.05 or maybe less nowadays.
Hollands Hope ina Dutch said on 27/Jul/07
I'm Life Aquatic and he does appear to be rather tall, and he has a couple of inches on Bill Murray.
James said on 26/Jul/07
I remember I saw a clip from the fly once and he walking next to his ex wife Greena Davis who is 6ft and he looked about her height but she was wearing HIGH HEALS of cours.
James said on 24/Jul/07
In most films esspecially the Lost World Jeff can pull of looking over 6ft4 although in Indpendence Day he did not really look anything more than his stated height above so he can be quite a tricky guy at times.
Ed said on 23/Jul/07
Yeah, James I saw that movie where Vaughn was the abusive step-dad or something like that. If I remember correctly it took place somewhere rural, and Travolta wore big work boots throughout the film. I'm sure that along with camrea angles downplayed the 4.5 in as well.

Viper, he does seem like his smart ass way could piss off a few people! I think he's hilarious, but then again I don't know him personally. 6ft1 is hysterical, there are some delusional people out there as well as on this site. I don't know if it's just jealousy or what?
Viper said on 22/Jul/07
Vaughn is obviously 6-4 bare minimum yes, and probably taller. 6-1 is crazy for Vince. But I dont know why I have read a couple of in person celebrity sightings of him being 6-1 on some of those celebrity sighting websites. Its bizarre. One of them specifically said that Vince didnt look very tall in person. Maybe they have it in for him? He might have pissed a few people off!
James said on 22/Jul/07
Ed have you seen that film with him and John Travolta in it, again the same method was used to downplay the 4 and half inch difference between Travolta and Vince. Such as camera angles and the use of a box for Travolta.
Ed said on 22/Jul/07
Vaughn is at least 6ft4, anything less is B.S.! Anonymous, I don't know what version of Wedding Crashers you watched, but Vaughn dwarfed Owen Wilson. My answer for why in some shots he might have looked taller is simple, camera angles. The director tried to downplay as best as possible the near 7 inches or so difference between the two. I'm sure they didn't want Wilson to look like a complete midget next to him the entire time!

Viper, I think The Rock is more 6ft2-6ft2.5 to Vaughn's 6ft4.5, he might not be a dead on 6ft5 but he's real close. As for 6ft1, that's hilarious. The guy is a giant in Hollywood and there has been nothing but years of evidence with pictures and movies to prove it.
Markus said on 22/Jul/07
6'1" for Vaughn is impossible Viper.

Btw, in the beginning of the Lost World they unload a van. Both Goldblum and Vaughns are as tall are the vans height. I just can't figure out the brand and type of van..I would like to look it up.
Viper said on 22/Jul/07
Ed, Ive read a couple of 6-1 sightings of Vince Vaugh in person on the internet. Some other guy said on here that he though Vince was 6-1 originally.
Viper said on 21/Jul/07
Vince had 2-3 inches on Rock in Be Cool. If you beleive Vince is in the 6-4 range then there is no way you could have Rock at 6-3.
Anonymous said on 21/Jul/07
Did you notice in the Wedding Crashers that Vince did not look that much taller than Owen Wilson who is 5ft10, I dont know why but he just did not look 6ft5 in that film, more like 6ft3.
Ed said on 21/Jul/07
James, did you see the pic towards the bottom of this page that Gonzalo posted on May 25th, 2006. It's got Goldblum dwarfing Morgan Freeman(6ft2.5) by what looks to be 3 inches, and having almost 7 inches on Tom Hanks(6ft) and 5 or so on Will Smith(6ft1.5). I really believe with shoes on Goldblum is pushing 6ft6 and I think he's probably more like 6ft4.5 or so barefoot.

That's funny James your brother thought he was that tall when he's dwarfed pretty much everybody he's shared screen time with. I first saw him in Swingers and I could tell he was a real tall guy, but wasn't 100% sure how tall. He had a good 4-5 inches on Jon Favreau who I knew was at least 6ft from seeing him in Rudy.

At times in The Lost World Vaughn looked a bit taller and at other times Goldblum did. They seem to be very evenly matched. Also Vaughn was way skinnier back then, this was coming off Swingers and he hadn't started to bulk up like he has in the last few years. He stayed skinny like that through the Pyscho remake and a movie called Clay Pigeons, but has been looking a good 25-30lbs heavier in the last 7 years or so in movies like The Break Up, Wedding Crashers, and Starsky and Hutch.

One last thing if you've ever seen The Big Chill, Goldblum is super skinny in that movie and shares screentime with Kevin Kline(6ft1.5) and has a good 4 inches on him. I can't remember his footwear in the film, but he was freaking huge in that movie and looked 6ft6 barefoot. I wouldn't doubt if he was a hair over 6ft5 back then and has lost only a half inch or so since.
James said on 20/Jul/07
Ed it's Jeff Goldblum's slim build that makes him look so tall. Because Vince has a more stockier build it makes him look not as tall on screen and in fact a few months a go I asked my brother how tall he thought Vince was and he said "6ft1". I never had any idea he was 6ft5 before I came on this site. By the way the Rock's height is 6ft3 as he is listed on this website. Oh yeah one more thing if you look at the Guiness World Records 2007 there is a section on the tallest leading actors and there is a picture of Vince Vaughn and it states that he is 6ft4.
Ed said on 20/Jul/07
James I saw a lot of tall extras in that movie, for example the security guard at the very end of the movie who won't let Goldblum and Moore through the gate during the press screening, right before the ship comes crashing into the dock. That security guard has several inches on Goldblum looking 6ft6-6ft7. As for the other security guard I'd give him 6ft9-6ft10, he's got Vaughn by a good 5-6 inches.

Yeah , Vaughn good be only 6ft4ish he did look only marginally taller than The Rock in Be Cool, and I don't think The Rock is much more than 6ft2-6ft2.5.

Peter Stormare is the guys name and he looked to be 2 inches shorter to me than Vaughn when they were face to face. Also there was another fairly tall guy, being the dinosaur hippie specialist with the ponytail and the cowboy hat. He looked a good 6ft2 or so!

One last note, both Vaughn and Goldblum were super lean and lanky in this movie making them look even taller. If they are both 6ft4ish they were easily near 6ft6 in the big heeled boots they were wearing. Especially Goldblum, why he needed boots with such big heels at 6ft4 I don't know?
James said on 19/Jul/07
Not really Ed most of the extras were under 6feet except for Peter Stratmore who is 6ft2.5. I also noticed the warehouse scene with that huge worker guy, although it's very hard to judge he looked about 6ft8ish. Did you notice as well that when Vince Vaghun is squaring up to Peter Stratmore that there looked less than 2 inches between the 2, now Peter Stratmore isn't quite 6ft3 which is why I think Vince Vaghun is no more than 6ft4 maybe 6ft4.5 but I dont think he is 6ft5 do you agree Ed???
Ed said on 17/Jul/07
I just recently watched The Lost World and Goldblum and Vince Vaughn almost matched each other identically. Goldblum did have some serious heeled boots on though, and Vaughn had on hiking boots. The funny thing is in the beginning of the movie before they leave for the island, they are walking through the warehouse gathering their supplies and they are both dwarfed by a warehouse worker who looks near 7ft tall. It's kind of funny to see two really tall actors who normally loom over everybody they share screentime with, get dwarfed by somebody else. There were alot of tall actors and extras though I noticed in Lost World.
James said on 16/Jul/07
Maybe nowadays he is on the 6ft4 mark
Jmes said on 14/Jul/07
To me this guy has always looked bigger than 6ft4
James said on 29/Jun/07
Honestly Viper he must be the tallest 6ft4 guy known to medical science lol
Viper said on 28/Jun/07
He seriously looked the same height as Vince? I need to see that movie again. I thought I remembered Vince being taller.
Bad Radio said on 28/Jun/07
i saw him in san fran once...he looked 6'5. Tall and skinny.
James said on 27/Jun/07
Editor Rob
Jeff looked exactley the same size as Vince in Jurrasick Park 2
James said on 25/Jun/07
Editor Rob
I think in his 20's Jeff probably stood at 194cm do you agree?

[Editor Rob: sometimes they might drop any 1/4 of 1/2's at tall heights. Being too tall can lose you parts.]
James said on 22/Jun/07
i dont know what it is about this guy but if i wansn't a height expert i would bill him at 6ft6 to 6ft7. i know he isnt actually this tall, he's more around the 6ft4 area but it's his slim frame and lankyness which really make him appear towering.
Gonzalo said on 20/Jun/07
James said on 14/Jun/07
Glenn did he look taller than 6ft4 to you
Viper said on 12/Jun/07
Has Goldblum ever been photographed with say Hasselhoff or Tim Robbins? Either way he did look a full shorter than Vince Vaughn in Jurrasic Park 2.
dmeyer said on 12/Jun/07
he walked by me one he is an imposing guy about 6'4

Glenn, did he look bigger than 6ft4 to you?
Danimal said on 10/Jun/07
Conan was every bit 6'4"+. Andy (his former sidekick was 6'2") and Conan had at least 2" on him, if not 3".
Danimal said on 10/Jun/07
In Swingers, next to 6'2" Jon Favreau and next to 6'3.5" Will Farell in Old School. He used to be listed as 6'6".
5'11.5 guy said on 10/Jun/07
BTW, Jeff is only one inch under Hal Hartley. Who is 6'6.
5'11.5 guy said on 10/Jun/07
No way is Conan 6'3. 6'3.5 minimum. And Vince looks 6'5 or slightly over in every pic. Have you seen how he towers Aniston?
Viper said on 10/Jun/07
Where has Vince ever looked OVER 6-5 before?
Viper said on 10/Jun/07
I think Conan is more in the 6-3 range. 6-4 Hasselhoff went back to back with him and was taller.
5'11.5 guy said on 10/Jun/07
Nah, Vince has always looked a solid 6'5 or slightly more. Anyway, Goldblum is clearly taller than Conan, who is a solid 6'4.
Korben said on 10/Jun/07
why cant we just get Golblum, Vaugn, Seagal, Neeson, Robbins etc together for a nice group pic so we can have a nice reference photo lol
Viper said on 10/Jun/07
No, If anything Vince Vaughn could be more 6-4 1/2. Hes never looked over a flat 6-5 before. Vince had an inch on Goldblum I thought.
Viper said on 10/Jun/07
Hows it hanging Mr R.
Mr. R said on 10/Jun/07
This is pretty on target. I have seen him a few times. He even plays Jazz piano at clubs around Hollywood, and he is pretty good! He also ALWAYS has a hot lady on his arm!
5'11.5 guy said on 9/Jun/07
He's taller than Conan O'Brien. 6'4.5 IMO. Vince Vaughn is probably slightly over 6'5.
Viper said on 9/Jun/07
He was shorter than 6-5 Vince Vaughn in Jurassic Park 2.
Gon jon park said on 9/Jun/07
yeah agree with james that mr.goldblum looks 194cm or a 6ft4max(194.8cm) by taller than most 193cm actor..
Bad Radio said on 3/Jun/07
Man..I don't think so...I saw him standing next to conan o'brien...he looked 1.5 to 2 inches taller than Conan. I'd say standing straight this guy is 6'5.5.
James said on 23/May/07
Glenn, I think 194cm if not more is more accurate for this guy. I mean compared to other 6fft 4 guys such as Liam Neeson, Bob Saget or David Morse he looks taller.
Banner GaL said on 19/May/07
pics below from Antron.. bill murray looks only like 6ft with a good posture while jeff nodd his head abit down.. jeff would be 6ft5 if murray 6ft1.. agree any1??

Franco said on 1/May/07
yeah i saw the episode of Friends too, looked 6'5 (in shoes) so 6'4 is correct, he got a pretty rounded body so he can look shorter sometimes like 6'3 and his short neck doesnt help.

he is 6'4 flat
James said on 14/Apr/07
Just saw him on an episode of 'Friends' and I can honeslty say he looks 6ft4 maybe just a bit over since he has like 6 or 5 inches on Matt Le Blanc.
aerotive said on 17/Mar/07
He was on Conan tonight and looked to be the same height as him. 6ft 4 seems right.
Markus said on 13/Mar/07
I guess she has very bad judge of height.
Women and dimensions don't go together ;)
Ray said on 12/Mar/07
He was a guest some years back on a chat show hosted by Cindy Crawford. She estimated his height to be 6' 2".
Antron said on 5/Feb/07
With Bill Murray (6'1"), appears at least 6'4". He is slightly behind Bill and Nodding his head down a bit, and is still noticeably taller...

If he stood up straight 6'4" looks about right with Glenn.

Goldblum is leaning more than Forest is.

In that picture he doesn't look taller than Forest Whitaker with Glenn.
ALT said on 19/Nov/06
I met Goldblum outside a theatre in New York last year, and I'm 5'10''. He had to practically double over so that our faces were level for a picture. He is definately 6'4''.
Franco said on 16/Nov/06
looks 1.88cm in that pic, but i agree he is 6'4 and since i am 6'4 too and saw him personally in Italy couple of times i have no doubts.

1.93cm is his true height.
Korben said on 16/Nov/06
this dude is big, 6'4 at the bare Minimum, i think 194 is more accurate, even thought hes older now he just seems so big
Markus said on 2/Nov/06
I always have to smile when I see Goldblum, he seems such a nice and friendly guy. And definately 6-4
Viper652 said on 13/Sep/06
Danimal, what about the Vince young picture with Jay Leno. That is a pretty shocking photo.
Danimal said on 12/Sep/06
You see, now look how hunched over Jeff is in that pic with Glenn and he claims 6'4" and compare that to the Rock pic who also claims he is 6'4". Jeff is taller.

Vince looks 6-5 next to a measured 6-4 NFL player though.
ken_hiroshi_ said on 10/Sep/06
we can;t judge the pics below to say vince is taller than jeff.. jeff looks 195 in his 20s..30s.. to be say that he is 6ft4.5(194cm)still a very tall dude.. what i know about is vince round up his height by 1 inches since he started his career.. vince do looks 6ft4 about jeff height most apear..
James said on 15/Aug/06
I saw him while Iwas in New York one time and I saw him walk into a store. The top of his head was about an inch away from hitting the top of the door. I think a door is supposed to be about 6'6 so that would make him 6'5
Anthony said on 12/Aug/06
Jeff was marginally shorter than Vince in "The Lost World". There's a pic of them below. Vince is slightly taller but neither are standing straight. I'm willing to bet that both standing fully straight would hit the 6'5 mark, with maybe Jeff being marginally shorter. There's no doubt that both of them are very tall men, and are definitely in very similar height ranges if not the exact same height.
kathrine said on 11/Aug/06
anyone watch jurassic park2?? jeff was atually 2~3cm taller than vince vaugh in the movie.. if vince is 6ft5.35(1.96m) jeff was than 6ft6(1.98m).. could't make sense.. therefore i downgrade vince to 6ft4(1.93m) and jeff mildly 6ft5 (1.95m) to be accurate..
Anonymous said on 9/Aug/06
Just watch that part around the end of independence day when him and will are both walking side by side toward their wives. That'll give us a good idea of how tall each one is. I see a good 3" differential. jeff 6'4" will 6'1" even though he say 6'2" in i robot I kinda disagree with that.
Anthony said on 13/Jul/06
Along with Tim Robbins, Goldblum is one actor whose height really amazes me. He just looks so big when I see him onscreen. I'd say 6'4 is his minimum, but if I were a betting man, I'd say he was 6'5. In this pic he's about ten inches taller than both Billy Crystal and Robin Williams, both of whom are in the 5'7 range (I believe Billy's a little lower). I don't think Spacey's too much taller. Granted none of them are standing straight, but even so the difference is huge, at least from my perspective.
Jordan said on 12/Jul/06
I see rob about the Nesson pic--but dont you agree that Jeff looks like he can be taller then 6'4 since he is slouching with Glenn
Jordan said on 11/Jul/06
When Glenn was beside Liam Nesson who is 6'3.5 or 6'4, the amount was not as much as Jeff and Glenn. I personally think that Jeff could actually be 6'4 1/2

[Editor Rob: I think he was closer to camera in that neeson pic compared to this one]
hero said on 29/Jun/06
That photo with vince vaughn shows he is 6'4,i mean vince(full 6'5) is a bit taller than him,and yeah i agree he looked taller than will smith so yeah 6'4 even 6'4.5
werty said on 22/Jun/06
In Independance Day theres a scene where he an Will Smith are walking side by side in the desert, and he looks at the very least 2 inches taller.
Anonymous said on 17/Jun/06
In that foto with Tune Goldblum is clearly looking up at tune almost in disbelief that someone is that much taller than him. I think Goldblum is used to towering over people not vice versa.
Markus said on 17/Jun/06
You can see Tommy Tune is standing a bit nearer to the cam.
Also Jeff is standing a bit behind the other guy, Douglas Fairbanks. So they're not really standing beside, but rather behind each other but it's hard to see because there is almost no perspective

Tommy Tune is undoubtly taller than Jeff, but the difference is exaggerated in this pic.
TNTinCA said on 17/Jun/06
Easily 6'4". He made 6 foot Gina Davis look small in The Fly.
Anonymous said on 16/Jun/06
That Tommy Tune fellow looks to have 4 inches on Goldblum. I think he's lying about his height if he says he's 6'6''. Tune looks about 6'8''. I've never met Goldblum or seen him Fool unlike yourself but I can't believe he's only 6'2''. He's looked tall on too many films and shows to be less than 6'4''.
Fool said on 4/Jun/06
I met him in a bookstore and spoke to him for a minute or two back in '92. He wasn't toweringly tall, just tall. 6'2" or so. On screen he always looked maybe 6'6" to me.
A said on 4/Jun/06
man, Goldblum looks like a midget next to 6'6" Tommy Tune. Can the camera angle make THAT much of a difference?
Gonzalo said on 2/Jun/06
Who is Tommy Tune?

[Editor Rob: broadway type actor]
sam said on 26/May/06
Yeah, in those pictures everyone looks fairly shrimp-like next to Goldblum. He may be close to 6'5", but Vaughn still has a size advantage. Goldblum looked about 2 inches taller than Liev Schreiber and this was the only time I've seen Schreiber look short next to some one.
Markus said on 25/May/06
Jeff makes the other guys would really be a lot shorter...I'd say he has at least 2 to maybe 3 inches on Freeman. I doubt Will Smith is 6'2"..Tom Hanks looks like 5'11" max ??

I'm 6'4" myself, so I know how a 6'2" guy looks next to 6'4".

Only Vince Vaugh looks slightly taller...but Jeff leans a bit to his left and the camera has a bit of a weird angle making Vaughns forehead looks huge!
Gonzalo said on 25/May/06
In the page they say Jeff is 6`4. But he looks taller than that in this pic. Should we upgrade Jeff or downgrade the other guys?

Today, here in Italy, on canale 5 (the most important tv channel in Italy), a group of medicians were talking about heights and often they talked about the tallest actors in Hollywood. They said that Jeff Goldbloom has a perfect body structure with his height of 195cm.
Sue said on 18/Mar/06
Jeff is similiar to Barry Manilow bodywise, although a few inches taller, and I think Jeff works out a lot more! Jeff went out with both Geena Davies and Laura Dern, both tall girls. I think he needs to be on the same level with his women, or as near as he can get.
Anonymous said on 17/Mar/06
I met Jeff Goldblum in a sports centre in Los Angeles 14 years ago, both of us wearing trainers. I was surprised how tall he was, I'm 6'3 he was 2 inches taller, 6'5 definitely. He may have dropped half an inch over the years. He must be one of the very few celebrities that is tall.

well, i saw goldblum on conan today and when conan came to welcome him, he appeared almost 1 inch taller. (maybe it was the shoes, but i don't think people that are that tall already want to be taller). Conan was complimenting him on his height as he came in (not through words, but by hand gestures). so, yeah, hes taller than conan.
