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 says on 3/Jul/15
Liam hemsworth looked taller than him today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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.]

HE's clearly taller than Conan o´Brien: Click Here
Judd ISR says 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 says on 11/Jun/15
How come he looks more than 3 inches taller than Morgan Freeman? If anything, he towers over him.
Linda61 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 2/Mar/15
More like 6'4.5 peak (6'4.75 on a good day)

Now 6'4 flat
Lorne says 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 says on 17/Feb/15
Looked a flat 6'4 to me in his early movies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/Feb/15
Looked 194-195cm in The Fly and Jurassic Park
James says on 11/Feb/15
Not over 6'4 peak
Judd says 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 says on 10/Jan/15
In that picture with Gould he looks 194cm.

Arch Stanton says on 30/Dec/14
Rob, check out this one!! Click Here
Arch Stanton says 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 says on 29/Dec/14
This listing is more accurate for sure.
sixfooter says 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 says on 28/Dec/14
6ft 4.25-4.5in peak
6ft 3.5-3.75in today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Dec/14
I'd have gone with the full 6ft4½ peak and 6ft4 flat today.
Arch Stanton says on 25/Dec/14
Yey there you go! Seems about right now.
Über Wench says on 25/Dec/14
Crap. I'm 6'3"... What the hell do you mean "at peak"?!
Judd says 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 says 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 says on 20/Dec/14
Looked at least 6'5" next to Matt LeBlanc on Friends.
Mike says on 16/Dec/14
And don't forget the TV show Law & Order!
Arch Stanton says 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 says on 8/Dec/14
Strong 6ft 4 peak.
James D says 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 says 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"...you 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 says on 11/Oct/14
Yeah closer to 6'4.5 than 6'3.5 at his peak
Judd says 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 says on 28/Sep/14
Schreiber could be 6'2.5

Compared to Sutherland jeff looked 6'4-6'5.
Sam says 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.

Judd says on 16/Sep/14
honest 6'4"
James B says on 25/Aug/14
6'4.25 in the 90s
6'3.75 today
the shredder says 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.]
Realist says on 29/Jul/14
6'4 not lost much today atleast 6'3.5 today. Good actor too.
James B says on 2/Jul/14
he looks 6'6 with Sam

Maio says on 12/Apr/14
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 29/Mar/14
Arch Stanton says on 28/Mar/14
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?
Arch Stanton says on 28/Mar/14
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 says 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 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.

However I'd say he looked 6'4 in many of his movies and was taller than Donal Sutherland so 193-194cm peak.
berta says on 5/Feb/14
194 at peak. maybe still is but probably 193 now
Lenad is sexy says on 10/Jan/14
any chance he was 194cm peak rob?
[Editor Rob: he could pull off looking a strong 6ft 4]
Viking says on 10/Jan/14
6 4 thats it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 15/Oct/13
6ft4.5/194cm
Ali says on 13/Oct/13
He looked about 0.5 inch taller than Conan.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 9/Oct/13
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 says on 7/Oct/13
Edged out Conan and looked pretty similiar to Vince Vaughn and Craig Kilnborn.

Legit 194cm peak.
Ian C. says 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 says on 21/Sep/13
has always looked taller than conan and other 6'4-even men. 6'4.5 peak.
Lurk says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 28/Apr/13
he was barely shorter than Vince Vaughn in the lost world. Pheraps Vaughn isn't quite 6'5
Lorne? says 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 says 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 says 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.

Robbins 194 - 195 cm
Goldblum 193 - 194 cm
Segal 193 cm
Neeson 193 - 194 cm

The Exorcist says on 19/Dec/12
Closer to 6'5" at his peak, I reckon.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12
He's still at least 6ft4, IMO.
James says 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?
Arch Stanton says on 11/Nov/12

Rob do you think he looks only a flat 6'4" here? I know he's closer to the camera but his posture isn't the greatest either.
James says on 31/Oct/12
Conan O'Brien 6'4 (193cm)
Jeff goldblum 6'3.5 (192)

@Silent d, he was on Conan & at the 2:08 mark it does seem like he is taller than conan
Click Here
Silent d says on 22/Oct/12
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 says 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?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Sep/12
"Peak height was 6 ft 4.5 in (194cm)"
Likewise for Hasselhoff and Seagal. Today 0.5in shorter
Shaun says on 25/Aug/12
Well, I cant say he was "certainly" a strong 6'4", but he did very much appear to be 6'4"-6'5" anyway!
Shaun says on 25/Aug/12
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 says 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 says 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.
