I think Carrey is more 6ft 1-1.5 than 6ft 1.5-2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Oct/14
Jeff Daniels - 6ft2½(189cm)
Jim Carrey - 6ft1¾(187cm)
177cmGuy says 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 says on 30/Sep/14
I thought he could look 6ft1.5-6ft2 in his earlier stuff...

By Gordan Ramsay who is measured as being under 6'1.5" (so I'll go with 6'1.25"):

I don't know how much the feet shoes add, and he isn't standing up in his straightest posture either. I'm going to assume that Gordon has a .5" inch footwear advantage which brings Jim up to 6'0" in the photo with them possibly being identical if Jim was to have stood up straight. Another one by 6'0" Dave Grohl (Jim Carrey is in the same footwear as the last photo:

He looks 186 CM there as well.
jtm says on 27/Sep/14
slightly shorter than connery and connery is probably not even a full 6'1 today.
Celebheights 188 CM says on 27/Sep/14
He looked 186 CM when I ran into him (187 CM if I'm 188 CM).
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 26/Sep/14
Mr R would you say Jim seemed 6'1 on the dot?

How tall is Sean Connery in this photo?

Click Here

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.

Jeff is a weak 6'3
dude1e says on 19/Sep/14
He's 6ft2 cuz he's close to 6ft3 jeff
Celebheights 188 says on 14/Sep/14
Since he has claimed "about 6'2" in Liar Liar and not "6'2" something tells me that he has measured out of bed at 6'1.5"-6'1.75" otherwise he would've just said 6'2". He can look 6'2" however.
dude1e says on 8/Sep/14
Were would 6ft come to next to 6ft2
Celebheights 188CM says on 5/Sep/14
Did anybody else notice how he actually had his toes raised up for his advantage?

Jim Carrey's hair also adds at least a full inch, while Freeman's adds less. Jim Carrey has superior posture if anything, so 186 CM does seem believable. I don't know why some think that he could taller than Freeman. He slouches when somebody is way shorter and then forces his height out more and has perfect posture when an individuals is close to his height, his height or taller. I think that 186 CM is debatable.
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 4/Sep/14
Probably if anything he looked 186cm with morgan freeman assuming freeman was a strong 6'2 at the time
Celebheights188cm says on 31/Aug/14
187 CM is more believable than 188 CM in my opinion. Morgan Freeman has him beat.
Dejavu says on 28/Aug/14
He probably has poor posture. I think measured at his peak he is a 187cm.
dude1e says on 24/Aug/14
The guys huge you seen his legs
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 21/Aug/14
Nowadays, i'd say 6'1 exactly, but more 186cm when younger
mike says on 18/Aug/14
i doubt he less than 6ft1.
Juan Z says on 8/Aug/14
185-186 cm
187-188 with shoes
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 4/Aug/14
anywear from 184-186cm is arguable.
James B says 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 says 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.)
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 1/Aug/14
Freddie Prince Jr. is like 6'1", so no.
James B says 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
James B says 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 says 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.
Guy says on 30/Jul/14
Click Here next to listed 180 brad pitt.
Guy says 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 says on 18/Jul/14
solid 185cm
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 11/Jun/14
The photos clearly gave Jim Carrey an advantage by Jeff Daniels. Here he is in the Dumb and Dumber To trailer:

Click Here
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 10/Jun/14
Mike Starr (he's the primary antagonist) whose also listed as 6'3.5" actually had Jeff Daniels beaten by a full inch in the movie Dumb and Dumber and Jim Carrey by 2 inches. Why isn't that being brought into discussion? He's the exact reason why I don't believe that Jeff Daniels is a full 6'3".
BrianU2Guy says 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
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 8/Jun/14
Still is three inches taller than Carrell while giving him many advantages:

Click Here

At least 186-187 CM.
SaveUsY2J says 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 says on 7/Jun/14
thinking about it now 183cm isn't impossible i think he can look that height
jamieorr4 says 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
rockfellas says 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 says 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.
rockfellas says 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 says on 29/May/14
He looks no less than 185
John says on 26/May/14
He looks like a 6'2 guy who slouches because he's usually taller than whoever he's next to
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 26/May/14
Jeff Daniels doesn't look 6'3" by 6'2" listed Ryan Reynolds:

Click Here

He could even be shorter than Ryan Reynolds. While it's not likely, 6'1.5-6'1.75" shouldn't be completely eliminated from the picture for Jeff Daniels after comparing him by Ryan Reynolds if he's 6'2".
Lenad is sexy says on 15/May/14
legit 6ft1 man
Alex 6'0 says 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?
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 11/May/14
By 6'3-6'4" Dan Marino:

Click Here

He has footwear advantage and better posture with Dan Marino giving him a lot of advantages and Dan Marino still looks 3-4 inches taller.
berta says 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 says on 10/May/14
Most of the time looks 6'1 flat
Lenad is sexy says on 6/May/14
185-186cm
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 2/May/14
Also by 6'4" listed Randy Orton:

Click Here

He has his best posture by taller guys, so he looks 6'1" there. However, Randy Orton is closer to the camera.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 2/May/14
Just watched The Cable Guy, and while he did appear 6 feet in most of it, he had at least 3 inches on 5'10.5 Owen Wilson in it (rewind to the scene where they fought). He may've had a footwear advantage on him though (the footwear was visible in the beginning of the scene). I'd give him 6'1.5" at least.
Lenad is sexy says on 28/Apr/14
that could be spot on seahawksfan
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 27/Apr/14
In Dumb and Dumber Jim Carrey had better posture than Jeff Daniels, so:

Jeff Daniels: 190-191 CM
Jim Carrey 186-187 CM
Lenad is sexy says 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 says 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 says on 18/Apr/14
6'1.25
Lenad is sexy says on 18/Apr/14
185-186cm range now. 187 is starting to look to high now
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 17/Apr/14
He's now listed as 6'2" on IMDB when it said 6'1.5" before. I never thought of him as a full 6'2" as he's always looked south of the mark.
miko says 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 says on 15/Apr/14
In liar liar looked 185-186cm
mister_lennon says 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.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 13/Apr/14
Another one by Lauren Holly whose 5'5, but with a footwear advantage:

Click Here

He doesn't look as tall in full body photos for some reason.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 13/Apr/14
Other full body photos where it's fair game that I've found where we can see how he stands and his footwear:

By Sean Connery who was likely 6'0.5/184 CM when the photo was taken: Click Here (Sean Connery is bald, so it's clear)

Here he is by Steven Seagal whose listed as 6'4", Chris O'Donnell whose listed as 5'9", Nichole Kidman whose listed as 5'10.5" (she's also in sandals and slouching a bit), 6'2" (at the time) Clint Eastwood and 6'1.5" Arnold Schwarzenegger (at the time as this was 1995): Click Here

How tall would you all say he looks in those two?

Okay, here he is by 187 CM listed/6'1.5" listed Colin Firth (I'll link the ones where we can see the posture and footwear).

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

Why is he edged out by somebody with the same listing as him? He even has better posture than Firth in those photos. I think that Colin Firth deserves an upgrade to 6'2" now.
Lenad is sexy says on 12/Apr/14
weak 186cm
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 10/Apr/14
does he only look* who would wear lifts**
SaveUsY2J says on 9/Apr/14
Then explain how he consistently looks no shorter than other 187cm listed guys like Colin Firth, David Letterman and Damon Wayans?
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 9/Apr/14
Okay, here's an intriguing photo by Rodrigo Santoro whose listed as 6'2", and Jim Carrey edges him out and the footwear is completely visible:

Click Here

Why does he only 6'.5" by Ewan McGregor whose listed as 5'9.5" on here however with Rodrigo looking 5'11.75" by him? Jim Carrey doesn't seem like the type of guy would wear lifts (same with Ewan McGregor). Something doesn't add up here.

+1 The Shredder..
the shredder says 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 says 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.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 6/Apr/14
My opinion:

When he gets up out of bed on a good day: 6'1 5/8/187 CM (he claimed to be 'about 6'2' which to me means that he probably rounded up his morning height)
Late morning: 6'1 3/8/186.5 CM
Afternoon: 6'1 1/8-6'1.25"
Evening: 6'1"
When going to bed: 6'0.75-6'0 5/8

I don't think that he would ever measure up at 6'2" as he looks .25" inches shorter than Will Smith (they looked identical, but I could see a slight difference when looking closely) and I don't think that he's even a full 6'2". He's also clearly shorter than 6'2" listed John Cusack here:

Lenad is sexy says on 5/Apr/14
my money is on 186cm all the way
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 4/Apr/14
Here's another photo of him by 6'1.5" Damon Wayans:

Click Here

They both look 6'1.25-6'1.5" there as I'm considering the fact that they have the same upper head size in this photo (even though the hat does give an illusion that Jim Carrey might be taller at first).
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 4/Apr/14
@James B They look the same there, although I think Wayans could be taller than him with even posture. I'd guess that Jim Carrey was 186 CM in those photos.
James B says 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?
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 27/Mar/14
Also by a 6'1"/185 CM listed guy (thought that it would be the most accurate comparison):

Click Here

There's also this one where he's 1.25" inches taller:

Click Here

However, it's clear that Bill Hadar is slouching in that photo (along with everybody else besides Jim Carrey). A third one where Carrey barely edges him out:

Click Here

But he has his head tilted back which makes it difficult to tell by how much.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 27/Mar/14
By 6'2.25" Morgan Freeman:

That's probably him in a decent posture, and he's clearly one inch shorter.
James B says on 26/Mar/14
Didn't look over 6'1 in cable guy
nikos says 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 says on 22/Mar/14
He does not look any taller than 6'1 or 186cm to me in pics or in his movies.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 11/Mar/14
A better image by John C. Reilly that's clear:

Click Here

He's taller than 187 CM listed John C. Reilly (considering the fact that John C. Reilly is wearing a hat).

Jim Carrey: 187 CM/6'1.5"
John C. Reilly: 186 CM/6'1.25"
Lenad is sexy says on 11/Mar/14
Definitely not under 6'1
hey says on 6/Mar/14
if he is 6 foot 1

then will smith is barly 6 feet
Lenad is sexy says on 27/Feb/14
he looks 6'1 min in those pics
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 25/Feb/14
Here's another photo, and he easily passes for a full 6'2":

Click Here

He easily has a full inch on John C. Reilly there who has the same listing, 2.25 on 6'0 Luke Wilson, 3 on Owen Wilson with Will Ferrell being about an inch taller.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 25/Feb/14
He edges out John. C. Reilly whose also listed as 187 CM (I would have to purchase to link it).
ZenMaster says on 15/Feb/14
Definitely at least 6'1"
Chameleon says on 9/Feb/14
Dude are you serious?? He looked 6 feet max in Me Myself and Irene watch again!
Lenad is sexy says on 30/Jan/14
if we have ross at 185cm then it might time to put Carrey to 186cm
Lenad is sexy says on 26/Jan/14
yeah he can look just 6'1 from close to 6'2
Lenad is sexy says 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 says on 23/Jan/14
I still stand by my estimate that carrey is a strong 6'1 most likely 186cm
berta says 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 says on 17/Jan/14
He looked closer to 6'2 than 6'1 in liar liar though
Seahawksfan says on 16/Jan/14
186 CM by John Cusack whose 188:

Dejavu says on 15/Jan/14
He can look 6'1 and looks 6'2 at times. 187
Lenad is sexy says 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 says on 10/Jan/14
I think 187cm is more of a morning height for jim
Seahawksfan says on 5/Jan/14
Jim Carrey is my height, 186 CM. I'd like a photo of him standing by me with even footwear and posture to see if we're exactly identical.
Leo says 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 says on 24/Dec/13
I still think 186cm is bang on for jims height
Lenad is sexy says 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 says on 14/Dec/13
Probably solid 185cm before bed
Seahawksfan says on 11/Dec/13
Accurate photo by Will Ferrell (6'2.75" with it being accurate since there's no slouching and these are two lanky dudes in Hollywood:

Click Here

He looks 6'1-6'1.25" there, definitely not 187 CM.
Lenad is sexy says 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 says on 3/Dec/13
in pics he looks 6'1 range next to ewan mcgregor
Seahawksfan says on 26/Nov/13
Since Will Smith is listed at 6'1.5 as well, could you possibly downgrade Jim Carrey to 6'1-6'1.25 as Will Smith is slightly taller than him?
Seahawksfan says on 25/Nov/13
In The Cable Guy, he didn't look that much taller than 5'5-5'6 Jack Black.
Seahawksfan says on 25/Nov/13
He claimed 'about 6'2' with his agency then saying that he's only 6'1 which got them to average it to 187 CM.
Tempest says 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 says on 22/Nov/13
What height does Jim Carrey claim though?
Dejavu says on 13/Nov/13
The reason why he looks shorter is due to his posture. He doesn't really force posture in photos
Seahawksfan says on 12/Nov/13
Here is Jim Carrey with 5'7.5 Michael Myers:

Click Here

He does not look like a full 6'1 next to him for some reason. Will Smith who I think is more 6'1.75" edges out Jim Carrey if you look closely as well. Nobody ever said he was 6'1.5", so is it possible that you downgrade him to 186 CM? He looks taller than 6'1", but I wouldn't buy a full 6'1.5"
Seahawksfan says on 5/Nov/13
Do you want to know why I believe that Jeff Daniels isn't 6'3? Mike Starr (a legit 6'3.5) was taller than Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber at least and Jeff Daniels looked no more than 6'2.25 next to him. Jim Carrey is NOT 6'2, but I think that just saying 6'1 is a little low as well.
Silent d says 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 says on 24/Oct/13
186cm. He can look 2 inches taller than cage
Chameleon says on 23/Oct/13
O yeah? Watch Me Myself & Irene where he also barely looks 6 foot.
Chameleon says on 22/Oct/13
Yeah I can buy 184cm, but he is never 187cm without shoes.
Silent d says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 18/Oct/13
"Jim Carrey height: 6ft 1.75in (187cm)"

Looked about 6ft2 in Dumb & Dumber if Jeff Daniels is 6ft3
Seahawksfan says on 15/Oct/13
So if he said that he was 6'2, and then his agent said 6'1, they average it to 6'1.5? I'm sorry, but that's not the way to figure out an actors height. Here he is with 6'2 Morgan Freeman:

He's around 6'1-6'1.5. I would say 6'1.5 on a good day, and more 6'1 on most days.
Scott five eleven says on 15/Oct/13
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.

@Tempest- He really isn't.... he's the same height if not a fraction taller.
Tempest says on 13/Oct/13
Well, Ramsay is shorter than Norm MacDonald who's listed at 6'1".
Dejavu says on 10/Oct/13
Carrey is taller than 6'1 but looks shorter because he just has bad posture.
miko says 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.
The Exorcist says 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.

Click Here

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.

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 says on 22/Sep/13
@The Exorcist- Ramsay is closer to the camera and has far better posture.
The Exorcist says on 20/Sep/13
Jim Carrey is shorter than 6'1.3 listed Gordon Ramsay.

Rob, is 6ft1.75 possible?
Lenad is sexy says on 14/Sep/13
1-1.5 inches shorter than jeff daniels
Yaspaa says on 8/Sep/13
6'0 is funny.
Scott five eleven says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 15/Aug/13
184cm max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Aug/13
I think Carrey is a 187-188cm guy when standing tall.
KROC says on 5/Aug/13
No way. He can't be as tall as Morgan Freeman...
teej says on 4/Aug/13
wiltonstilts, im not saying he is 6'3, im saying i thought he was
Lorne says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 25/Jul/13
Im 6ft1 and a half(187cm) i must say i thought he was much taller like 6ft3.. :o
Rey says 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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Jul/13
But what time was the plumber guy measured at, Rob?
[Editor Rob: teatime.]
Lenad is sexy says on 28/Jun/13
him and damon wayans are very close in height. 186cm makes sense
Silent d says on 22/Jun/13
I just can't see him shorter than 186cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says on 15/Jun/13
6'0.5"
Lenad is sexy says on 13/Jun/13
Not noticeably. In every pic I see them together they look very close. Wayans might be 1 cm taller
Roic says 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 says on 8/Jun/13
daniels was never 6'3.
Lenad is sexy says 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 says 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 says on 31/May/13
prime example of a 6'1 (185cm) man in barefeet.....187cm in sneakers or dress shoes and good posture
Jax briggs says on 26/Apr/13
Peak 188 now 187 next 5-10yrs 186-185
Lenad is sexy says on 23/Apr/13
looks like a 186cm guy to me. 185 is the lowest id pin him
neggs says 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 says on 6/Apr/13
If Carrey is 6'0 then Jeff Daniels is 186cm at most. I highly doubt that...
Dman1528 says on 5/Apr/13
He has always looked around 6foot1 to me
Andrew says 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 says on 30/Mar/13
187cm looks believable in pics with Danny Huston
lenad is sexy says 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 says 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
Tempest says 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.

Jim Carrey is 6' range if Rob's estimation of Cary Elwes is correct.

186cm.
Tempest says on 1/Mar/13
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 says 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 says on 16/Feb/13
Jim was almost as tall as then 6'2 Clint Eastwood 20 years ago.
Tempest says 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 says 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.
Tempest says on 12/Feb/13
This was the nail in the coffin in determining that his height was around 6' for me: Click Here
Nick22 says 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 says 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 says on 10/Feb/13
185 cm.
Silent d says on 4/Feb/13
186cm.
17, 6\'0 says on 1/Feb/13
6'2 sounds right for this brilliant actor/comedian. He's tall but not pointedly so.
Jane says on 12/Jan/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 says 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 says 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 says 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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Dec/12
6ft2.25(189cm) out of bed
6ft2(188cm) morning
6ft2(188cm) lunch
6ft1.75(187cm) afternoon
6ft1.75(187cm) evening
6ft1.5(187cm) night

roughly 1in under Jeff Daniels give or take
jd 99 says on 15/Dec/12
I would say 187 very fair guess defo not below 6 foot 1
