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 says 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 says on 8/Jun/15
6ft1½ is actually 186.69cm.

So you're both wrong :P
Rend says on 8/Jun/15

If Carrey's height is really 187 so pitt must be about 185 or 186.
Sam says 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".

@Hypado 6'1.5 is 186.7cm (187cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Apr/15

Rob, could you add him?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 28/Mar/15
187-188cm peak. Just watch The Dead Pool or The Cable Guy

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 says on 10/Mar/15
Dejavu says on 20/Feb/15
He could be 186 today. Not under 6'1 though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 31/Jan/15
Rob, could he have been nearer 6ft2 than 6ft1 in his 20's and 30's?
dayle182cm :( says on 26/Jan/15
Deffo a 6ft1.5 guy
Celebheights 188 CM says on 31/Dec/14
how come he was nearly*
Celebheights 188 CM says 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 says on 31/Dec/14
He might be 6'0.5 and 6'1.5 in shoe. Definitely not over 6'0.75 max
jamie179cm says on 29/Dec/14
@Lebensdorf jim carrey would be in shoes
Lebensdorf says 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 says on 3/Dec/14
i don't think hes quite 6ft1 i say 183cm or 184cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Nov/14
I see barely 1in between Carrey and Daniels
f says 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 says on 13/Nov/14
1.86 now before 1.87
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Nov/14
Looked a solid 188cm in The Truman Show.
Canucker says 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.
John 184 says on 31/Oct/14
6'1.75 (187cm) Jim Carrey
Silent_D says on 27/Oct/14
mike says on 16/Oct/14
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...
jtm says on 27/Sep/14

Mr R would you say Jim seemed 6'1 on the dot?

CCelebheights 188 CM says on 20/Sep/14
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.
James B says on 19/Sep/14
Jeff is a weak 6'3
dude1e says on 19/Sep/14
He's 6ft2 cuz he's close to 6ft3 jeff
dude1e says on 8/Sep/14
Were would 6ft come to next to 6ft2
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
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.)
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
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
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
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?
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
Lenad is sexy says on 28/Apr/14
that could be spot on seahawksfan
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
Lenad is sexy says on 18/Apr/14
185-186cm range now. 187 is starting to look to high now
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.
Lenad is sexy says on 12/Apr/14
weak 186cm
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?
Chameleon says on 8/Apr/14
+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.
Lenad is sexy says on 5/Apr/14
my money is on 186cm all the way
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?
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
Bakura says on 14/Oct/13

@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.

Start the video at 17:45
Click Here

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.

Click Here

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.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Sep/13
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
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
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

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.

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.

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 says on 1/Nov/12
I can live with 184cm at most but he is for sure not over that mark.

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)
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 26/Oct/12
Cooper can pull off 6'1 because of his large footwear. Hes taller than 5'11 but may not be quite 6'0
Chameleon says on 26/Oct/12
Yes Cooper is 181 max look at the pic I posted on his page.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm says 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.
Chameleon says on 25/Oct/12
Kilmer in his pic with Mamum had cowboy boots on Mamun said, so no way over 180cm for Kilmer that pic showed. Carrey is 6'0-ish like I been saying for ages.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 25/Oct/12
Guys, how tall do you think Val Kilmer is? I was watching a bit of Batman Forever on tv last night and Carrey was taller by an inch or so.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 22/Oct/12
If anything 184cm may be bang on for Carrey I think
Lenad is sexy says on 19/Oct/12
My genuine feeling is 6'1 is closer to the truth than 6'2. I wouldnt go as low as 184cm though
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 18/Oct/12
I dont see Carrey quite at 6'1 either. I could see a solid 184cm though
James says on 17/Oct/12
Rob do u agree that 186cm is closer?
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1-1.5, that's likely range, so anything in there you could say was a good shout.]
Lenad is sexy says on 16/Oct/12
I couldve sworn he described himself as 6'1" in that scene. Might have to watch the movie again to double check
The Exorcist says on 16/Oct/12
Describes himself as 6'2" in "Liar Liar". But that was a lie! lol

In reality, 6'1" would be more accurate.
James says on 15/Oct/12
But he did look 188xm next tii Nicholas cage
MaskDeMasque says on 14/Oct/12

How about this time u choose ur real nick and write that same comment u coward.. Its all of you people who ignored every single pic I posted. **** knows whats in his shoes on the top pic with Johnson and in the other hes on higher floor.
Bakura says on 8/Oct/12
Chameleon's rampant ego never ceases to astound me. His inability to ever accept he could possibly be wrong means he sucks every single debate he enters dry of any intelligence, turning it into a vacuous warzone. We now have a photo of Carrey clearly standing more than an inch taller than a legit 5'11 Aaron Johnson with near-identically sized footwear, on top of countless others which render his downgrade nigh-impossible (Jeff Daniels? Tommy Lee Jones?) yet he continues to uphold his usual immeasurable arrogance, proclaiming anyone who dares disagree with him a "troll" Thank Christ everyone's starting to wisen up to what a joke he is and treat him accordingly. Hopefully, with Physics Enemy and Viper long since disposed of, he too will get banned soon enough and we can finally have intelligent, peaceful debates on this site once more.
James says on 8/Oct/12
He's not a 6'2 guy.

He looks like 6'0 because I met him in new york city for signing an autograph and got his picture with me.I'm 6'1 and he looked 1 inch shorter than me.
Silent d says on 1/Oct/12
186cm. He just has that lanky build that is taller than 6 foot like keanu, jim parsons and dj qualls.
Legit 6 footer says on 28/Sep/12
Anything under 6'1.5" is a joke. Perhaps even a peak of 6'2?
anon says on 26/Sep/12
I agree with this listing, lowest I can see Carrey is 6'1 / 185.5cm but realistically he is somewhere around 186/187.
Chameleon says on 26/Sep/12
I know I'm right. says on 25/Sep/12
At least 6'1" 6'1 1/2"efore. Was like an inch shorter than the 6'1" guy on SNL. Showless. So maybe he's 6'. Shoeless.

Chameleon says on 26/Sep/12
Thats right, all bash Chameleon who provided tonns of evidence on many pages including this one and didnt hear anything back from the ppl who bash me right now yet dare to call me downgrader. some kind of troll conspiracy going on.
Silent d says on 26/Sep/12
Chameleon has lost this debate. No one really believes he is 6 foot. 186cm. He always looked taller than 6 foot.
I know I\'m right. says on 25/Sep/12

just look at him next to aaron johnson. 186cm is the absolute minimum jim carrey is. to say he is only 6ft is absurd. even with carreys pavement advantage or johnson being under 180cm.

'anyone who is still in denial I will leave to dust. Goodbye' lol that better be last we hear from him. Thinks he owns the site.

Jake, I agree with you. Somewhere between 186-187cm is the lowest I'd give Carrey. The 6ft claims are boring many to death at this stage. Plain retardation. You need to draw the line somewhere.

dan the man says on 12/Sep/12
carrey is 6'2" no doubt about that so i dont why everyone here has to be so downgrading of the man's height. he has always looked 6'2" in all of his movies and his poor posture just makes him 6'1 when slouched, but definetly 6'2" when standing fully erect.who cares anyway either way he's a tall man,so get over it.
Chameleon says on 9/Sep/12
Speculation? I have posted pics where he was wearing lifts months ago and nobody commented on it. Also in The Hangover he clearly has lifted dress shoes on to make him slightly taller than Ed Helms. I guess he forgot them with Dax Shephard as u can see on his page. Cooper is not 6'1. and Jim is a legit 6'.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 9/Sep/12
Lifts? Who? Where?

I've never seen him wearing suspicious shoes.
What's wrong with you people?

Claiming that he wears lifts and showing no evidence at all.

This is only speculation.
Chameleon says on 8/Sep/12
Bradley cooper is a 5'11 guy without his lifts, Jim is 6'0.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 7/Sep/12
He was taller than Bradley Cooper in Yes Man, 186 is possible.
Chameleon says on 28/Aug/12
Legit 6'0 guy thats it.
MaskDeMasque says on 27/Aug/12
clearly nothing below 6' at night. 6'1.5 tho? maybe just 6'1.
jtm says on 27/Aug/12
nobody in truman show was short.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 26/Aug/12
He looked 6ft2-2.5 in The Truman Show. But the cast was considerably
short. Other than that he usually looks between 6ft1 and 6ft2.
jtm says on 24/Aug/12
i just saw truman show again yesterday and he looked 5'11 next to 5'7 natascha mcelhone but he had bad posture so 6'0 is accurate.
Chameleon says on 23/Aug/12
Lmao, how is his height too noticeable, he looks like a 6 feet guy and thats what he is, there is no effing way he is taller than ALEX.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Aug/12
Jim Carrey's height is too noticeable to be just 6"0. Alex, I think Nicholas Cage would fit your description of a skinny 6"0 guy who can pass for 6"1. He's reasonably tall but doesn't stand out.
Alex says on 12/Aug/12
Skinny 6'0 can easily look 6'1 and sometimes 6'2. I have a muscular build but lean at the same time and I am almost always guessed at 6'1 at least.
Chameleon says on 12/Aug/12
No, I think by now it should be obvious he is a skinny 6' guy.
UK182.5cm says on 11/Aug/12
carey is nothing under 6'1", I am 6ft and he holds up much better to 6'3" and 6'2" guys than I do, so he's got to be 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Aug/12
6ft1 for Jeff Daniels aswell!
This Hob fella is worse than Viper.
Alex says on 7/Aug/12
I am 6'0-6'0.25 and I'd love to get a picture with Carrey but chances of him coming to NY for an autograph signing is slim I think
Alex says on 7/Aug/12
If we have Will Smith at 6'1 which I do think he looks and Carrey is a bit shorter than Carrey is no more than 6'0 1/2 and probably closer to 6'0 flat
Chameleon says on 3/Aug/12
He isnt more then a legit 6'.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Aug/12
Aw man, this is a trip. We're now selling 5ft11.5 estimates
for Jim Carrey.

I think 185cm is less likely than 188cm IMO.
So between 6ft1.5-2 could be on the money
Lenad is sexy says on 28/Jul/12
he looks like a strong 6ft1 to me.
BigT says on 25/Jul/12
I´m thinking closer to 185 cm.
Chameleon says on 15/Jun/12
The times where he looks over 6'0 is either because of footwear or because the other people he's with are overlisted, did you see the pics with Zellweger I posted too? I can go on and on posted so many things, there is no way hes 6'1 barefoot let alone 187cm. And Smith is 185cm MAX. He might even be taller than Jim honestly.
Penguinboy25 says on 14/Jun/12
I think it's safe to say he's not 187. In the videos he appears to be 6'0 area, however there is still other evidence out there showing he's taller than 6'0 more like 186 cm. It would be most reasonable to take the average. I'll say he is 185cm in morning and mid-day, and 184 at dinner time. Fair Chameleon? In other photos He also looks same as Will Smith. So were saying both he and Will Smith are 184-185?
Chameleon says on 14/Jun/12
Yes Carrey aint taller than him, scroll down to November to see my evidence if its still there. I've posted plenty, examine whats left of it.
Penguinboy25 says on 14/Jun/12
Chameleon so you're saying that Carrey and someone like David Duchovny are equal in height? Come on he's def. above 184. He's probably not even 184 at bed time.
Chameleon says on 13/Jun/12
183/184 MAX.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Jun/12
Damon Wayans 6ft2/188cm
Jim Carrey 6ft1.75/187.5cm
Penguinboy25 says on 6/Jun/12
I've seen photos where he looks a tad above 6'1 next to ferrel, and a bit below it next to Shawn Wayans. Although could be strange camera angles. I'd bet on 186 morning and 185 evening.

no way that carrey would be less than 1.86..
so 1.87 is realistic

184-185cm for cage.

carrey really could look 188cm next too him 11 years ago
ANDREA[ITA] says on 12/Feb/12
Yeah! James should have his eyes checked!
181-182 for cage and 184-185 is way more realistic!

BS, Carrey is 6 feet and Cage is noway near it.

Jim Carrey 6'1.5 (187cm)
Nicholas Cage 6'0.5 (184cm)
Chameleon says on 9/Feb/12
Correct Cage is noway near 6ft. Thats Jim's height.
Lenad is sexy says on 8/Feb/12
If Jim Carrey is 6ft0 then Nicolas Cage is barely 5'11. Give me a break...
jtm says on 7/Feb/12
he was saying carrey was 6'1 because he was being generous and even claimed 6'2 was possible.
James says on 6/Feb/12
he was only saying he was 6'1 because he did not sign his autographs.
MrGoodGuy says on 2/Feb/12
I remember G stating that Jim "was more like 6-1 and an ass." Rob do you remember this, and do you have the quote? In other words, if G himself thought 6-1, is then a downgrade imminent on this statement alone (-1.25 +/- margin of error)?
[Editor Rob:
actors have their head down signing stuff or trying to get away from the vultures - if you guess based on circumstances like that, in combination with streets which are never going to be level, god knows what estimates you could get!]
James says on 26/Jan/12
With Nicholas Cage he does look bang on 6'2 however with jeff daniels in dumb and dubmer he looked a weak 6'2... unless of course jeff daniels is 6'3 1/2 which is unlikely except for in the morning.
Chameleon says on 24/Jan/12
The guy is 6 feet
Silent d says on 23/Jan/12
Jim carrey is more 187cm than tom cruise being 5 foot 9. He is a hard guy to judge. I always thought he was tall. I guess i have to meet him to be sure. 186cm.
ANDREA[ITA] says on 22/Jan/12
Agree 100% with James.
But i'd add also Tom Cruise 6'3 (190.5 cm) :)
