Jim Carrey's Height
6ft 1.5in (187 cm)
Canadian actor best known for starring in films like The Mask, The Truman Show, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Bruce Almighty, Dumb & Dumber, Liar Liar, Kick Ass 2, The Cable Guy and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
He is tall. Unlike most actors, he appears far taller in person than he does in movies.
"Six Feet Two," Carrey says proudly.
- New York Magazine, 1998

On closer look, yeah he looks more 186 in that pic
said on 19/Jul/16
rob, do you reckon carrey looks like a solid 187cm guy in the top pic, assuming Deschanel is 5'5 of course
Editor Rob: nah not really much more than 6ft 1
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 14/Jul/16
Atm, I think he's a solid 186cm guy. More 187 when younger.
said on 7/Jul/16
Rob, could you add Me & Irene, Living Color and The Deadpool to that list?
Editor Rob: I have to be careful with the length of description, it is more beneficial if I can find a quote or some tidbit about height, rather than listing a few more movies.
said on 3/Jul/16
Rob, is a fraction loss possible at 54 or so you think he's held up pretty well over the years?
Editor Rob: a small loss that might make him a 186 guy yes
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 17/Jun/16
186-187cm when standing straight
jtm said on 11/Jun/16
deschanel is the one that is losing more height and she looks 5'4 to me.
berta said on 8/Jun/16
this guy has the worst posture you can have and still looks 185-187 I dont Think he is shorter than 187 when he stand up straight
Andrea said on 5/Jun/16
187-188 is a big joke for Jim...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jun/16
I think he was 187/188cm range in the 90's.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 3/Jun/16
If he stood up straight in the top pic, I can see 187-188cm actually. I can easily buy 187cm for Carrey now
said on 3/Jun/16
Could somebody please explain to me why Jim Carrey appears to edge out Rodrigo Santoro here with worse posture (who is listed as 6'2", despite the fact that I think that a downgrade for him to 6'1 1/2" is in order as he seriously appears to be no taller than Will Smith or Gerard Butler who are both 187 CM)?
He looked similar with him in the movie as well.
Mark said on 30/May/16
I don't see more than 1 or 2 inches between Jim and Ferrell
berta said on 25/May/16
In photos with guys like Hugh Jackman and Nicolas Cage you can really see he was very Close to 6 foot 2. He never stands tall and even with that posture he never looks shorter than 185.
10% 185 ore 188
Mark said on 22/May/16
He has that lanky look. Definitely above the 6'1" range and could look near 6'2" with better posture.
Berta said on 22/May/16
he have extremely poor posture. I think he was 187,5 when he was young if he stood up straight ( maybe still is) He never look shorter than 185-86 and thats when he is hunched all the time
Silent_D said on 7/May/16
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 6/May/16
I agree rampage clover he can look that range at times. I personally wouldn't put him below 6'1, except maybe at night.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/May/16
Looked 187-188cm range in the 90's.
James B said on 2/May/16
According to my brother he will be reprising his role as the riddler in the future.
said on 27/Apr/16
i think this listing is spot on
in this pic his height is close to will ferrell's which is 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/16
Rob, which of these is most suitable for Carrey at peak?
S.J.H said on 8/Apr/16
Alright.. I think someone met jim carrey at 6'2 with shoes here. Probably 185ish barefoot not 6'0-6'0.5
berta said on 5/Apr/16
he looks anywhere from 185-87 but his posture cant be worse so he is probably this height. One of the best comedians ever
said on 1/Apr/16
So his claim is basically 6'2, Rob? He's a tricky guy, sometimes he can look just 6'-6'1 other times near enough the 6'1 mark...
Considering you yourself said that anywhere in 6'1-6'1.5 range is arguable for Jim, why don't you give him the mark in the middle, 6'1.25?
I personally don't think he'd measure much over 185...
Editor Rob: that's what he claimed yes. 186cm is always an arguable figure, as I say, I think you could argue anywhere over 6ft 1-1.5...I wouldn't go under 6ft 1 as an estimate.
said on 22/Mar/16
Rob, how probable is 6ft1 flat or lower for Carrey?
Editor Rob: there is a decent chance I think
Kourosh said on 23/Jan/16
@Charlie 5'10 inches for Jim is insane dont be ridiculous. No less than 6'1 for Jim.
Stan said on 21/Jan/16
Jim is a big guy always clear 6feet. In fact 6'1.5 sounds a little too much. 6'1 might be cleared
Tempest said on 18/Jan/16
About 6' flat and always been about 6' flat.
said on 3/Jan/16
Hey Rob, what do you think about the photo I posted from November? I know the angle might be a bit misleading; but what do you think about everyone's heights here?
Editor Rob: in a fair few photos he is a guy who can look just 6ft 1
charlie said on 31/Dec/15
i saw him on in living color opposite a black actor listed as 5 foot 6 inches and he looked 3 inches taller if that and he looked the same height as a black actress in a nurses outfit and high heels. Most women are 5 foo2 or 5 foot 4 and in heels they would be 5 foot 8 inches. that leaves Jim Carry at 5 foot 10 inches
charlie said on 31/Dec/15
my guess he is 5 foot 10 or 5 foot 10.5 here. he's over 50 now so it is most likely he may of shrunk a lot since then.
Dejavu said on 22/Dec/15
Probably near 6'2 peak. He had 2 inches on Nicholas cage and similar to Samuel l Jackson
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 20/Nov/15
I'd list him as 185cm or maybe 186
said on 10/Nov/15
Here's one of Jim near Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'm sure that the angle of the photo is tampering with the heights; but still a decent picture.
said on 10/Nov/15
Yeah Sam, I guess maybe Cusack's hair AND how his hat is placed on his head makes him look much taller than Jim.
Here's another one.
Sam said on 5/Nov/15
Interesting shot, I most often think Carrey would be better listed at 6'1.25" and he certainly looks no more than 6'1" range with 6'2" John Cusack.
Dejavu said on 20/Oct/15
Carrey can look 6'2 in his peak.
Rey said on 21/Sep/15
@Shamrock said on 20/Mar/15 in your group photo. Keanu Reeves looks 2 and 1/4 inches taller than Denzel Washington.
Rey said on 21/Sep/15
A weak 6' 1" or 6' 3/4 "

jim was wearing heeled shoes in that pic above
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 7/Jul/15
You should add this quote from Liar Liar (where he claimed to be his height). 'About 6'2", 180 pounds, big teeth, kinda gangly'.
Sam said on 10/Jun/15
I'd suspect Pitt is wearing a small lift there with Carrey, or big cowboy boots against Carrey in converse or something...I doubt Eric Bana is much taller than Carrey and in shots with Pitt, Bana can look at least 2 inches taller than a presumably lift-less Pitt.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/15
6ft1½ is actually 186.69cm.
So you're both wrong :P
said on 8/Jun/15
Rob how u explain this one?
Jim Carrey beside Brad Pitt
If Carrey's height is really 187 so pitt must be about 185 or 186.
Sam said on 18/May/15
I recently had dinner with Brian Delate, the actor who played Carrey's long-lost "dad" in The Truman Show, the guy's about 6'3" now, maybe near 6'3.5" at peak but he looked close to two inches shorter than myself. From re-watching the scene Carey looked 2-2.5 inches shorter than Brian IMO, makes a case for Carrey being close to 6'1".
OneNamePlease said on 12/May/15
@Hypado 6'1.5 is 186.7cm (187cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/15
Rob, could you add him?
said on 20/Apr/15
Random question Rob but since Carrey did play him in a movie...
How tall do you think Andy Kaufman was?
[Editor Rob: could look anywhere from 6ft to near 6ft 1]
Darth Nihilus said on 7/Apr/15
Jim Carrey looked about two inches shorter than 6'3" Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber 2.
Jim Carrey: 186 cm (6'1")
Jeff Daniels: 191 cm (6'3")
Hypado said on 29/Mar/15
Jim Carrey height: 6ft 1.5in (186,6 cm)
6ft 1.5in is, in fact, 186,6 or 186,7 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/15
187-188cm peak. Just watch The Dead Pool or The Cable Guy

What would jim be in shoes?

looks pretty tall in that pic

jtm says on 27/Sep/14
slightly shorter than connery and connery is probably not even a full 6'1 today.
he has a solid inch on connery standing straight
Silent_D said on 10/Mar/15
Dejavu said on 20/Feb/15
He could be 186 today. Not under 6'1 though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/15
Rob, could he have been nearer 6ft2 than 6ft1 in his 20's and 30's?
dayle182cm :( said on 26/Jan/15
Deffo a 6ft1.5 guy
Celebheights 188 CM said on 31/Dec/14
how come he was nearly*
Celebheights 188 CM said on 31/Dec/14
@Jamie then how was nearly two inches taller than Nicolas Cage? How come he was an inch taller than Bradley Cooper as well?
Lonestar said on 31/Dec/14
He might be 6'0.5 and 6'1.5 in shoe. Definitely not over 6'0.75 max
jamie179cm said on 29/Dec/14
@Lebensdorf jim carrey would be in shoes
Lebensdorf said on 13/Dec/14
He was 6'2 next to Liam Neeson in the Dirty Harry movie (the Dead Pool). He looked no more than 2 inches shorter. That's hard to pull off next to such a big guy if you're not really 6'2.
jamie179cm said on 3/Dec/14
i don't think hes quite 6ft1 i say 183cm or 184cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/14
I see barely 1in between Carrey and Daniels
f said on 17/Nov/14
he's 1.5 to 2 inches shorter than morgan freeman
I say carey is 6-0 to 6-0 1/2 max
Luc said on 13/Nov/14
1.86 now before 1.87
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Nov/14
Looked a solid 188cm in The Truman Show.
Canucker said on 4/Nov/14
David Letterman is 6'2" exactly, I've seen him in person and I'm 6'2"1/4 exactly and I'm pretty good at judging height. I'm confident Carrey is 6'2" based on seeing him on TV beside Letterman.

6'1.75 (187cm) Jim Carrey
Silent_D said on 27/Oct/14
mike said on 16/Oct/14
I think Carrey is more 6ft 1-1.5 than 6ft 1.5-2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/14
Jeff Daniels - 6ft2½(189cm)
Jim Carrey - 6ft1¾(187cm)
177cmGuy said on 12/Oct/14
He did look 6'2 in the Truman show. My guess is anywhere in 185cm-188cm range is possible but I don't think he's even lost a full inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
I thought he could look 6ft1.5-6ft2 in his earlier stuff...
jtm said on 27/Sep/14
slightly shorter than connery and connery is probably not even a full 6'1 today.

Mr R would you say Jim seemed 6'1 on the dot?
Mr. R said on 20/Sep/14
CCelebheights 188 CM says on 20/Sep/14
How tall is Sean Connery in this photo?
Jim Carrey is half an inch taller than him to maybe a fraction above, and Sean Connery strikes me as a guy who was once 6'2.25" (not 6'2.5" that has shrunk to like 6'0.25"-6'0.5"). His posture would subtract a quarter of an inch at most in this photo.
I was actually at this event. They both walked past me. Sean has definitely lost some height. JC was 6-1, and Sean was maybe a tad taller.
James B said on 19/Sep/14
Jeff is a weak 6'3
dude1e said on 19/Sep/14
He's 6ft2 cuz he's close to 6ft3 jeff
dude1e said on 8/Sep/14
Were would 6ft come to next to 6ft2
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in said on 4/Sep/14
Probably if anything he looked 186cm with morgan freeman assuming freeman was a strong 6'2 at the time
Dejavu said on 28/Aug/14
He probably has poor posture. I think measured at his peak he is a 187cm.
dude1e said on 24/Aug/14
The guys huge you seen his legs
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in said on 21/Aug/14
Nowadays, i'd say 6'1 exactly, but more 186cm when younger
mike said on 18/Aug/14
i doubt he less than 6ft1.
Juan Z said on 8/Aug/14
187-188 with shoes
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in said on 4/Aug/14
anywear from 184-186cm is arguable.
said on 3/Aug/14
Glenn probably said he was more 6'1 cause Jim would ignore him
[Editor Rob: there is some truth to that]
MrNiceGuy said on 2/Aug/14
Glenn saw him as "more 6-1" and Glenn said the same of Jake Gyllenhaal clearly overestimating by at least one inch as he did his own. (Not to slight him at all - he was invited to a $200 plus rock show by yours truly which he accepted then declined.)
James B said on 1/Aug/14
Next to Kilmer, tommy lee and ed begley jr as well he looked 6'1 lat.
I think 6'1 (185cm) is spot on for his peak and 6'0.75 today
Near Seagal 20 years ago is not looking 6'1.5
said on 31/Jul/14
Rob could you really picture this guy having almost 2 inches on Freddie prince jr? Seems really hard to picture for me. Anyway in his movies I'd say he looked 6'1 flat not 6'1.5.
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1.5 is the most I'd argue, you could say 6ft 1 is quitearguable aswell.]
Sam said on 31/Jul/14
I'd agree that this guy is a solid 6'1", 186-187 cm peaking, barely dips below the 6'1" mark.
said on 30/Jul/14
next to listed 180 brad pitt.
Guy said on 28/Jul/14
In movies like Kick Ass 2 he looked like 183. I think he can be a 185 with a good posture
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in said on 18/Jul/14
BrianU2Guy said on 9/Jun/14
At the beginning of his career he always struck me as a tall guy and looked every inch of the 6'2".
Nowadays when I look at his more recent movies he doesn't give me the same impression, he looks slightly shorter like 6'1 max and his posture got slightly worse.
Perhaps he has lost a bit of height now, what do you think Rob?
PS: He's still an amazingly talented actor regardless
SaveUsY2J said on 7/Jun/14
Carell is closer to the camera and is tilting his head upwards to give the illusion of extra height. And yes, Randy Orton is a legit 6'4" he looks at and there's numerous trusted users, like Vegas, on this site, who've met him and can vouch for that. I kind of wish I hadn't latched on to the bait now, because looking at your comments on the Carl Weathers/Arnold Schwarzenegger pages etc. you're a massively unsubtle troll.
jamieorr4 said on 7/Jun/14
thinking about it now 183cm isn't impossible i think he can look that height
jamieorr4 said on 7/Jun/14
he doesn't look as tall as will smith imo but still jim could a be legit 61 guy i think he could as low as 184cm
said on 6/Jun/14
no, orton is not a legit 6'4", no way.
here carrey with actor and producer steve carell:Click Here
carell, close to carrey, wears glasses. Carell is listed here at 5'9"(175cm).
Carrey looks max 3 inches taller than 5'9"(175cm) steve carrell. A legit 6'1.5" would have almost towered over carrell.
Jim carrey is in the 6ft range, nothing more.
SaveUsY2J said on 5/Jun/14
@rockfellas: Orton is 6'4, and he's noticeably closer to the camera. No. 6'1.5 is not a joke, it's spot on.
said on 4/Jun/14
6'3" wrestler randy orton towers over carrey:Click Here
jim carrey is max 6ft. this 6'1.5" is simply a joke.
Guy said on 29/May/14
He looks no less than 185

He looks like a 6'2 guy who slouches because he's usually taller than whoever he's next to

legit 6ft1 man
Alex 6'0 said on 13/May/14
Dan Marino is listed at 6'4 so not sure what he was measured at. 6'4 give or take 1/4 inch is my guess. Maybe 6'3.5 at worst?
berta said on 11/May/14
ha hasnt shrank. Look att photos of him and jeff daniels. >There is no way jeff daniels have shrunk to under 188 at 59 he is probably still close to peak heught maybe 8 mm lost at most. and carrey looks about the same height in all photos. he never stand up straight, if he does he is not under 187
James B said on 10/May/14
Most of the time looks 6'1 flat

Lenad is sexy said on 28/Apr/14
that could be spot on seahawksfan
Lenad is sexy said on 26/Apr/14
184cm does look plausible now as he is over 50 and doesn't look quite as tall as he used to. That's the lowest id buy though
Lenad is sexy
said on 21/Apr/14
any chance he could be as low as 184cm now Rob?
[Editor Rob: wouldn't guess him quite that low, just 6ft 1 is a real possibility at times.]
Lenad is sexy said on 18/Apr/14
Lenad is sexy said on 18/Apr/14
185-186cm range now. 187 is starting to look to high now
said on 15/Apr/14
Rob at 52 could he be more 6'1 flat in 2013? His posture isn't what it used to be.
[Editor Rob: it is possible a small amount to get lost, he can look just 6ft 1 at times yeah]
James B said on 15/Apr/14
In liar liar looked 185-186cm
mister_lennon said on 14/Apr/14
i think he is about a strong 6'1 guy. About 1'86 or more probably 1'87. But he can looks 6'2 at times.

Then explain how he consistently looks no shorter than other 187cm listed guys like Colin Firth, David Letterman and Damon Wayans?

+1 The Shredder..
the shredder said on 8/Apr/14
Carrey is not a damn thing over a 6'1 and could be under. Sorry but this listing bad.
James B said on 7/Apr/14
I agree Carrey does not look a proper 6'1.5 compared to guys like Arnie, Chris noth and Nathan filon. All those guys would fall in the 6'1.5-6'1.75 range whereas Carrey is more like 6'1-6'1.25.
Lenad is sexy said on 5/Apr/14
my money is on 186cm all the way
said on 4/Apr/14
Hmmmm rob 6'1.5 Damon wayans seems taller
So does ll cool j as well
Maybe carry is not 6'1 1/2 after all?
James B said on 26/Mar/14
Didn't look over 6'1 in cable guy
nikos said on 23/Mar/14
on batman forever he is eye to eye with 182 listed val kilmer[by the way the footwear is the same]so rob as i said on the sight with kilmer you have to downgrade carrey at least on 6ft[183cm]
James B said on 22/Mar/14
He does not look any taller than 6'1 or 186cm to me in pics or in his movies.
Lenad is sexy said on 11/Mar/14
Definitely not under 6'1

Definitely at least 6'1"

Dude are you serious?? He looked 6 feet max in Me Myself and Irene watch again!
Lenad is sexy said on 30/Jan/14
if we have ross at 185cm then it might time to put Carrey to 186cm
Lenad is sexy said on 26/Jan/14
yeah he can look just 6'1 from close to 6'2
Lenad is sexy
said on 25/Jan/14
rob do you think at night carrey could only be 6'1 on the dot 185cm?
[Editor Rob: generally 6ft 1-1.5 range is what you can argue...6ft 1 flat today isn't impossible, he can look it at times yeah.]
Lenad is sexy said on 23/Jan/14
I still stand by my estimate that carrey is a strong 6'1 most likely 186cm
berta said on 21/Jan/14
he has really bad posture if he stand at his tallest i think he is a proper 187 even close to 188. In new photos with jeff daniels they look about the same height i think these days jim carrey is 187 ( and same height ten years back) and jeff daniels was 189-190 at peak and now he has lost a fraction and is 189
Lenad is sexy said on 17/Jan/14
He looked closer to 6'2 than 6'1 in liar liar though
Dejavu said on 15/Jan/14
He can look 6'1 and looks 6'2 at times. 187
Lenad is sexy said on 12/Jan/14
most of the time he looks right between 6'1 and 2. The 6'0 claims are dumb
Lenad is sexy said on 10/Jan/14
I think 187cm is more of a morning height for jim
Leo said on 26/Dec/13
I would say 6'1.25". Next to kick ass 2's olga who is 6'0.5" with heels, he seems only slightly shorter than 6'3" olga (with heels) and he's probably 6'2" with his army boots.
Lenad is sexy said on 24/Dec/13
I still think 186cm is bang on for jims height
Lenad is sexy said on 16/Dec/13
some photos are just weird seahawksfan. There is no way Ferrel really has that much height over jim. Ive seen other photos where there really only looks like 1-2inches difference
Lenad is sexy said on 14/Dec/13
Probably solid 185cm before bed
Lenad is sexy said on 6/Dec/13
the same height as damon waynas if not a fraction shorter. Once again I peg him at 186cm
Lenad is sexy said on 3/Dec/13
in pics he looks 6'1 range next to ewan mcgregor
Tempest said on 24/Nov/13
If anyone cares, Jim Carrey is also slightly shorter than Damon Wayans which can be seen in the old In Living Colour skits. I maintain that Jim Carrey is a skinny 6'0.5".
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 22/Nov/13
What height does Jim Carrey claim though?
Dejavu said on 13/Nov/13
The reason why he looks shorter is due to his posture. He doesn't really force posture in photos
Silent d said on 3/Nov/13
I will admit in the cable guy he looked 6 foot and some other movies but in most movies, he is close to 6 foot 2. 186cm is good for him. He looks taller than 6 foot guys. 186cm.
Dejavu said on 24/Oct/13
186cm. He can look 2 inches taller than cage
Chameleon said on 23/Oct/13
O yeah? Watch Me Myself & Irene where he also barely looks 6 foot.
Chameleon said on 22/Oct/13
Yeah I can buy 184cm, but he is never 187cm without shoes.
Silent d said on 21/Oct/13
He only looks barely 6 foot in the cable guy. That is the only movie where he looks shorter than 187cm. 186cm.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 20/Oct/13
I could see possibly as much as 6'1 for this guy but no way 6'1.5-6'2. I think he's over just 6'0 flat though. 6'0.5 is pretty possible
Lenad is sexy said on 19/Oct/13
You do have a point there rampage clover as there was only an inch or so between them in dumb and dumber, although I do wonder if daniels is more in the 6'2 range sometimes.
Lenad is sexy said on 19/Oct/13
ive watched the video of him with jonathan ross. When they stood near each other for the first time ross looked taller but had posture advantage. When they sang wild thing, you can see they clearly look similar in height. So I think Strong 6'1 for both of them
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/13
"Jim Carrey height: 6ft 1.75in (187cm)"
Looked about 6ft2 in Dumb & Dumber if Jeff Daniels is 6ft3

I remember in 'liar liar' just after the scene where he beats himself up in the restroom to get out of court he describes himself to the judge as 'about 6'2 and 180 pounds'. I think 6'2 in shoes is likely but otherwise he always seemed 6'1 ish to me.
said on 14/Oct/13
@Tempest- He really isn't.... he's the same height if not a fraction taller.
Tempest said on 13/Oct/13
Well, Ramsay is shorter than Norm MacDonald who's listed at 6'1".
Dejavu said on 10/Oct/13
Carrey is taller than 6'1 but looks shorter because he just has bad posture.
miko said on 4/Oct/13
Put Carrey and Ramsay barefoot face to face and I'd put money on Carrey coming out taller.
Both are 6'1 range but Carrey has diabolical posture.
said on 24/Sep/13
Yes, Bakura. My picture isn't the best. Ramsay is closer to the camera and has better posture than Carrey.
I'm looking at more pictures of Jim and Ramsay together and it's become more apparent that my picture is even worse for judging height because Jim is wearing a pair of stupid feet.
I doubt that it's even possible to know if those feet are giving him more or less of an advantage over Ramsay's footwear. So not a good pic, no.
But I do believe it's good enough to suggest that Jim isn't the 6'1.5 as listed. I've got something else worth considering. Here he is with (a very debatable) 6'1.5 listed Jonathan Ross. There's over 3 minutes of footage of them both standing next to each other and it's quite clear that Ross is taller.
Start the video at 17:45
Additionally, I have a photo of Jim with legit 6'2" Morgan Freeman. Now with this picture, lol, it appears that they're standing on water. More than likely, however, it is PROBABLY an even ground studio floor and they're standing face-to-face. It's safe to say that there is a full inch difference.
My estimate is 6'1" for Jim Carrey.
Bakura said on 22/Sep/13
@The Exorcist- Ramsay is closer to the camera and has far better posture.
said on 20/Sep/13
Jim Carrey is shorter than 6'1.3 listed Gordon Ramsay.

Rob, is 6ft1.75 possible?
Lenad is sexy said on 14/Sep/13
1-1.5 inches shorter than jeff daniels
Yaspaa said on 8/Sep/13
6'0 is funny.
Scott five eleven said on 7/Sep/13
Always noticed he was tall but not massive. And always guessed around 6'1. 187cm is possible as he was shorter than 6'3 listed jeff Daniels but not much!
Lenad is sexy said on 28/Aug/13
He looked similar height to david letterman, will smith, colin firth and damon waynas who are all listed as 187cm. I'm sorry chameleon but you're fighting a losing a battle
Chameleon said on 22/Aug/13
Man I dont know who the hell u think u are, but I've posted tonns of stuff showing he clearly is not 187, more than that there are pics where he looks 187. Unfortunately nearly all of it is gone but on Nov 4 2012 I still have 2 pics scroll down and watch.
Bakura said on 20/Aug/13
Oh for frig's sake Chameleon. Don't you ever give up? We all thought you'd finally disappeared but you still come back periodically to infuriate us a little more. Apparently the photos of him looking nearly 3 inches taller than a legit 5'11" Aaron Johnson in almost identical footwear, plus those of him edging out 6'1" Colin Firth weren't enough to relay the message that yet another of your ridiculous downgrades has been debunked. But you continue beating a dead horse anyway, because your all-encompassing ego won't allow you to so much as fathom the possibility that you might be wrong. You delude yourself into believing you own this site and always know best, and that anyone who dares have an opinion that in any way differs from your own is a ‘troll’ (proving you have absolutely no idea what that word means) How you haven't been banned continues to be a mystery to all of us. I speak for everyone here when I say you'd be doing us all a favour by jumping before you're pushed.
Whoa that was a lot of second-person pronouns. Rant over.
Chameleon said on 15/Aug/13
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Aug/13
I think Carrey is a 187-188cm guy when standing tall.
KROC said on 5/Aug/13
No way. He can't be as tall as Morgan Freeman...
teej said on 4/Aug/13
wiltonstilts, im not saying he is 6'3, im saying i thought he was
Lorne said on 4/Aug/13
He really does look 6'1.5 a lot but with guys like Freeman, I'd say 186cm. Have seen pics of him looking 6'1(flat),but under 185cm is bull.Honestly I think he might edge out Will Smith, Carrey has goofy posture a lot and still looks tall. But anywhere 6'1-6'1.5. (and when comparing to Freeman, remember is was actually nearer 189cm peak, like 6ft2.25)
cole said on 29/Jul/13
I would peg him just shy of 6'1, 6'0.75 or possibly 6'0.5, after seeing him with Ewan McGregor, Steve Carell and Cary Elwes.
wiltonstilts said on 26/Jul/13
Teej what are you talking about? You need to prove of what your saying. How do you figure he was 6 03?
teej said on 25/Jul/13
Im 6ft1 and a half(187cm) i must say i thought he was much taller like 6ft3.. :o
Rey said on 24/Jul/13
I would bet you that Rick Springfield who is is listed on this site at " 6'1" " ---is taller than Jim Carrey listed @ " 6'1.5" " !!! Jim is no taller than 6'.75" maximum with the Ace Ventura hair. jk about the hair.
said on 7/Jul/13
But what time was the plumber guy measured at, Rob?
[Editor Rob: teatime.]
Lenad is sexy said on 28/Jun/13
him and damon wayans are very close in height. 186cm makes sense
Silent d said on 22/Jun/13
I just can't see him shorter than 186cm.
said on 21/Jun/13
Rob, when you think of legit 187cm guys, who usually comes to mind?
[Editor Rob: a guy like Nathan fillion possibly.
the plumber from height challenge - a 187cm guy that would get guessed as 190cm in hollywood.]
jamie said on 15/Jun/13
Lenad is sexy said on 13/Jun/13
Not noticeably. In every pic I see them together they look very close. Wayans might be 1 cm taller
Roic said on 11/Jun/13
You have Damon Wayans at this exact same height. Good friends in real life and lots of pictures together. Wayans seems to edge his friend out everytime.
jtm said on 8/Jun/13
daniels was never 6'3.
Lenad is sexy said on 7/Jun/13
I saw closer to 1 inch actually. But I agree with everyone though, realistically he's closer to 6'1
El Mariachi said on 5/Jun/13
Jim Carrey can only be 6'1" max. In Dumb and Dumber he was two full inches shorter than 6'3" Jeff Daniels.
Jax said on 31/May/13
prime example of a 6'1 (185cm) man in barefeet.....187cm in sneakers or dress shoes and good posture
Lenad is sexy said on 23/Apr/13
looks like a 186cm guy to me. 185 is the lowest id pin him
neggs said on 8/Apr/13
LOL at people trying to put him below 6'0. He may shorter now than he was at his peak, but if you watch dumb and dumber, he looks only slightly shorter than 6'2.5 Jeff Daniels. Easily 6'1 - 6'1.5.
lenad is sexy said on 6/Apr/13
If Carrey is 6'0 then Jeff Daniels is 186cm at most. I highly doubt that...
Dman1528 said on 5/Apr/13
He has always looked around 6foot1 to me
Andrew said on 30/Mar/13
I'm 6'0.5", and I always thought Jim Carrey would be way taller than me, like 6'4 or 6'5" at least. I'm surprised he's just a little bit above average height. I guess he must be thinner than I thought. He was so lanky when he was younger.
lenad is sexy said on 30/Mar/13
187cm looks believable in pics with Danny Huston
lenad is sexy said on 28/Mar/13
I think hes in 6'1 range most likely 186cm or nipping. I doubt hes ever been the 6'2 he gets listed at from what ive seen in pics and videos. I wouldnt go as low as 6'0 though
penguinboy25 said on 22/Mar/13
Clearly 187 is too high and 183 is a bit low. After reviewing many photo's he's probably about 184 to 185cm max. If I had to give an exact height I'd guess 6'0.5
said on 13/Mar/13
Should be about 3.5 inches taller than Steve Carell. Jim Carrey's hair adds an inch if you glance at the pic.
said on 6/Mar/13
Jim Carrey is 6' range if Rob's estimation of Cary Elwes is correct.

Well, here is Gordon and Jim Carrey. Click Here
Jim Carrey is also not much taller than Cary Elwes from Liar, Liar in this picture: Click Here

Here's Jim next to Carla Gugino: Click Here
Wearing these heels: Click Here
I realize her heels are hard to see, but I believe they're around 3 inches. I'd definitely say no more than that.
If Jim turned his head forward in the first picture his eyes would be just above Carla's head. If she's 5'7.5" in those heels then Jim would be 6'.5" in shoes - disregarding the possible .25 or perhaps even .5 inch advantage over my estimate his shoes might give. Mind you, I'm only going with 1 inch flat while his dress shoes probably give 1.25 or even 1.5. Rob, please take a good look at this and give me your opinion.
Tempest said on 27/Feb/13
In Mr. Popper's Penguins he looks 5 inches taller than Carla Gugino (she's wearing 3 inch heels - Jim wearing regular dress shoes). If Carla Gugino is 5'4.5", Jim is 7 inches taller than that (3 inches - 1 inch + 5) which would be 5'11.5" which is right around the mark that a semi-famous rock music artist posted a few years ago. She said she measured Jim on her doorway at 6' or a little under.
James said on 16/Feb/13
Jim was almost as tall as then 6'2 Clint Eastwood 20 years ago.
said on 16/Feb/13
I really think that your argument is bunk James. I was saying Jim Carrey was 6'ish over 2 years ago. So what if he has the posture advantage here (which I do not agree with) Jim still has this going against him: Click Here
Now, compare that with this photo of Jim and David Alan Grier who's listed at 6'2" but somehow is shorter than Damon Wayans in this short I posted and in the hilarious movie Blankman : Click Here
James said on 14/Feb/13
In that pic cary elwes has his arm around jim carreys shoulder giving him posture advantage over jim.
6'1.25 (186cm) is bang on for Jim carreys height. Maybe 5 years down the line might be no taller 185cm.
I agree though that the he was never the 6'2 he was listed at.
said on 12/Feb/13
This was the nail in the coffin in determining that his height was around 6' for me: Click Here
Nick22 said on 11/Feb/13
In "Bruce the almighty" he looked around 2 cm shorter than 6'2 Morgan Freeman. 186 is about right for Jim Carrey.
Lo sgozzatore said on 10/Feb/13
I agree with Balrog! He can look 6' max in a lot of pics, thats granted! But i believe that if he stood straight, he could be near 185! I doubt he's over that mark... He was a bit taller than Bradley Cooper, who's probably just about 6'!
Balrog said on 10/Feb/13

You guys are stupid! LMAO, Jim might get really upset,:0 man you guys have serious issues which you need to solve. For me he's the tallest guy TDH 6'2 and thats it = Perfect. Get over it people and please be more kinder, will you!!!
Balrog said on 8/Jan/13
I'd give him 6'0¾" pushing 6'1'' to be generous but he really looks 183-184 cms in a lot of pics.
guy said on 2/Jan/13
He is clearly 6'2" because of how close him and jeff daniels are in height in dumb and dumber and whoever tries to say he is 6'1" is truly and completely lying to themselves and are probably insecure about their height and gain self confidence through degrading and downgrading tall people.
Balrog said on 27/Dec/12
Haven't seen much of this guy but I never think of him being this tall. I'd say he's a wee bit over 6 feet because he is taller than Bradley Cooper who is around 6'0'' too. He's skinny, might create ilussion of tallness.

Lol omg he looks 6'0 in that video as Ross is not a cm over 6'1..

He's probably a guy who wakes at near 6'2, and drops to 6'1.
said on 11/Nov/12
Appears to be shorter than Johnathan Ross (also listed 6'1.5 by Rob).
Go to 17:45 in this video. There's Over 3 minutes of footage with both of them standing together.
6'1" for Jim.

See how his height looks different in the pics you guys posted. Some pics are devieving so its not that easy to tell.
James said on 4/Nov/12
Same height as will smith 186cm.
said on 4/Nov/12
No way under 185cm for this guy:
Looking 185 next to Colin Firth (listed at 187 here), but he's bending his right leg while Firth is standing straight.
James said on 3/Nov/12
Oh come on chameleon no way is this guy under 6'1. Just looks at him with Jeff Daniels and Morgan freeman and he looks a very solid 6'1 man.
Chameleon said on 1/Nov/12
I can live with 184cm at most but he is for sure not over that mark.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 28/Oct/12
Cary Elwes is 181cm, Rob has met him and can confirm that, he isn't under 181 at 100%. Jim Carrey looked 185 next to him and Morgan Freeman.

Yeah I think 6'2 is extreme. He looks more like a 6'1 guy than a 6'2 man. Could measure 185cm at night these days but overall 186cm seems on target. 184cm is too low.. maybe when he is 60 he will measure that mark.
Jim carrey 6'1.25 (186cm)
Val kilmer 5'11.75 (182cm)

Cooper can pull off 6'1 because of his large footwear. Hes taller than 5'11 but may not be quite 6'0
Chameleon said on 26/Oct/12
Yes Cooper is 181 max look at the pic I posted on his page.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 26/Oct/12
If he's 184 then Bradley Cooper is 181-182 max, and Cary Elwes is under 180, quite frankly it's a bit hard to believe it. The guy isn't under 185, he is around the same as Colin Firth, looks taller than Nicholas Cage and a bit shorter than Jeff Daniels and Morgan Freeman. 185-186 fits him, he's 6'1. I believe that he's eye to eye with Will Smith.
