John Cleese does NOT duck under door frames. He just walks through them.
[Editor Rob: unlike Chuck Norris...when doors see him coming, they open or else end up getting a fist through them.]
EzioAuditore711 says on 23/Jul/14
Door frames aren't a problem for me. I walk around in flip-flops. I think that Parsons looks to be about 6 feet tall, but not over. I'd say a strong 5'11'' with a bit heel and he's close to 6'1''. 6'2'' is absolutely impossible unless he's in lifts, which strangely enough hasn't been discussed yet. Is Jim Parsons a lift wearer? Certainly would explain the 6'1'',6'2'' claims.
Rhonda says on 16/Jul/14
That's very tall, do you duck under doors because you would on a lot of doors in shoes you could be over 6ft6, although some doors are bigger, there must be some you have to duck under. John Cleese in Fawlty Towers ducks under doors and he's 6ft4.5- 6ft5. Rob says 6ft4.5 but I think he underestimates his height, although Jim Parsons is an overestimate, what do you think of the picture with Brent Spiner and Parsons? How tall do you reckon?
SaveUsY2J says on 16/Jul/14
That Spiner photo is just as bad as the Bouchard photo for height comparison, Brent's nearer the camera and has considerably thicker hair.

He doesn't have the advantage over Bouchard either, no casual shoes give more than an inch of height, and the trainers she has on look like the kind which would give about 1.3 inches, so she does have the edge. And she's nearer the camera, so whatever the angle's like, that automatically gives her the boost.

For what it's worth, a guy I knew from school who looks a legit 6'1" in person met him in London recently: Click Here (hope the link works, don't know what the privacy settings are like on his Facebook)

They look the same height, though Parsons is a bit farther from the camera, and as it's a mobile selfie I'm not sure how much bearing the angle has on it. Doesn't look like there'd be any difference between them if they stood next to each other with equal posture, though.
EzioAuditore711 says on 12/Jul/14
I'm 6'5'', Rhonda.
Rhonda says on 10/Jul/14
The prove is with other 5ft10 people like Brent Spiner who Rob has for 5ft9.5 he has only two inches in him also.

Rhonda says on 10/Jul/14
@save us, I doubt very much those are 0.5 inches and I wouldn't call those dress shoes, they are casual not dress so more like over and inch judging the angle. As for camera angles, Sheldon has the advantage, because you see that table you know both the near side and far side are the same height but the picture looks like the far side has higher in the picture. He appears after another look 1 inch above her but he is leaning but she is not standing straight leg bent in causal pose, believe me he has maximum of 2 inches on her. The prove is with other 5ft10 people like Brent Spiner who Rob has for 5ft9.5 he has only two inches in him also.
Rhonda says on 8/Jul/14
I am 5ft2 Ezio, what height are you?
SaveUsY2J says on 8/Jul/14
@Rhonda- She's in Nike Air Max-type shoes which would give slightly over an inch of additional height, so about 0.5 more than those dress shoes he's in would add. If you subtracted that plus her camera and posture advantages, I think he'd have about three inches over her;
EzioAuditore711 says on 8/Jul/14
Thank you, Rhonda. I'm glad someone else sees the truth. BTW how tall are you?
Josh says on 7/Jul/14
He´s not over 6'0 after seeing Bouchard picture probably 5´11.5
Rhonda says on 6/Jul/14
He never looks 6ft2 sorry C but that is an impossibility. I've narrowed it down to 6ft flat to 6ft1. I'd say he is 184cm if I was to put a height for him, I could believe 6ft is more likely than 6ft2. His shoes with Bouchard aren't flat either, I think he has footwear advantage vs tennis shoes.
EzioAuditore711 says on 5/Jul/14
He doesn't look 6'2'' next to Bouchard. 6' flat is more likely.
SaveUsY2J says on 4/Jul/14
That Bouchard photo is worthless for height comparison. He's at every disadvantage imaginable- she's nearer the camera and has thicker footwear, plus he's leaning in. It proves nothing.
~C~ says on 4/Jul/14
Just said on Letterman he's 6'2" 170 lbs.
EzioAuditore711 says on 3/Jul/14
He's 5'11''. Maybe 5'11.5''. 6' is a stretch.
Rhonda says on 3/Jul/14
Jim was watching Bouchard vs Halep at Wimbledon, he is big fan of Bouchard, and Bouchard loves the Big Bang Theory invited him. Good luck to her winning Wimbledon.
Teej says on 2/Jul/14
I thought he was a strong 6'2 189cm, but then again its hard to tell as the rest of the Big Bang Theory cast are substantially shorter than him, im suprised though i must say.
Rhonda says on 30/Jun/14
Bouchard is 5ft10 and Sheldon looks 6ft there that is 183cm. He isn't one inch taller it is more.
Rhonda says on 30/Jun/14
Thanks SaveUs, I posted two photos where they looked same height, I cannot see your first one but your second Parsons owns Bomer by two inches there. I wonder if lifts for Bomer in my photos or lifts for Parson in yours, who knows.
EzioAuditore711 says on 30/Jun/14
The Bouchard pic proves it! He's 5'11''. Maybe 5'11.5''-6' if stretched out.
Bouchard fan says on 30/Jun/14
Bouchard 178 cm... He, probably 180 - 182 cm not more

SaveUsY2J says on 26/Jun/14
@Rhonda: Proof that you can't trust one photo alone (and the second photo you've posted is worthless for height comparison, as they're not standing anywhere near close enough to each other to accurately compare) because in all of these photos Parsons has a good two inches on Bomer:

Saveus the 6ft claims are not rubbish, scroll down to my comment dated Rhonda says on 17/Jul/13
Jim Parsons with Matt Bomer listed as 5ft11.5 and Rob lists him as 5ft11.25 and click the links in these photos he is not over 6ft.
EzioAuditore711 says on 20/Jun/14
He's something under 6'1''. Not sure how much under, but he's not 6'1''. Then again I recently learned that I'm 6'5''. Which means that my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt.
SaveUsY2J says on 12/Jun/14
These 6'0 claims are crap. He's nothing under 6'1.
EzioAuditore711 says on 2/Jun/14
Cooper wears suspicious heeled shoes and is slightly under 6'1''. As for Parsons he's in the 5'11.5''-6'0'' range. DJ Qualls looked slightly taller on TBBT.
Rhonda says on 31/May/14
EzioAuditore711, he is neither 5ft10 nor 6ft2, if you want an accurate height for him would be DJ Qualls height, he was on the show and is about the same height as him. Qualls is about 6ft0.5". There has been several approx 5ft10 people on the BBT such as Will Wheaton and Brent Spiner and Leonard's mother and he has been a couple of inches taller. I am convinced he is smaller than Rob's listing… it is possible he is a tall 5ft11er and a slightly under 6ft1 is possible like Qualls. Qualls has been listed as a flat 6ft on some sites, like Jim he looks taller because of a very very thin build but when stood next to people like Bradley Cooper, Qualls is clearly shorter, so Parsons would be likewise smaller than Bradley Cooper.
EzioAuditore711 says on 22/May/14
He's definitely closer to 5'10'' than he is to 6'2''. 6' is the absolute MAXIMUM he could look. He might be as low as 5'11''. His lean build seems to fool A LOT of people into thinking he's up to 2 inches taller than he actually is! Does he look 6'2'' next to 5'7'' Nayyar? I don't think so!
Mikki says on 16/May/14
he said in an interview that he was 6'2", but i don't know if he was joking or not..
Az says on 7/May/14
Ran into this guy today at a restaurant in NYC. He is definitely taller than 6'. Also saw Anthony Bourdain, very much 6'4". :)
MrGrim says on 23/Apr/14
rhonda fair enough 5'11 but pallin and EzioAuditore711 have a very good point.And i knew a bloke who was 5'9 who actually thought he was 6foot he said the doctor told him he was that tall even though me mate who's 6'5 was stood right next to me and even told him he's not and he still thought he was lol people believe what they want to believe.
Rhonda says on 8/Apr/14
There are a couple of good pointers towards his height :- his head reaches the top of the bracket of the door in shoes and just under that with it shoes. I believe Ross from Friends reaches a similar height in shoes and many believe he is also slightly under 6ft1. Personally I think the absolute max he can be is a 6ft1 flat and the bare min he could be is 5ft11.5. I am going to say 6ft to 6ft0.5 would be my personal opinion on his height. I am trying to find the height of Gablehauser because Sheldon is similar height. Anyway the top of a bracket from a door frame is a good number of inches if he were 6ft1 with shoes he'd be taller next to door frame. MrGrim no way is he as small as 5ft10, Leonard's mother is that height and he is taller, assuming she is actually a genuine 5ft10 that is. There is nothing to point to such a low 5ft10 height for him. He looks a few inches more.
EzioAuditore711 says on 24/Mar/14
Palin is 100% right! That's what I've been saying all along. And BTW I'm pretty sure that Palin at 186 cm would be taller than Jim Parsons.
MrGrim says on 24/Mar/14
5'10, 5'11, tops don't be fooled skinny people can look a lot taller than they actually are even the way you dress can make you look taller I am 6'0 but if Jim parsons is 6'1 then I'm 6'2 or even 6'3 I mean come on you all know how actors say there a few inches taller than they actually are but hey if you think he's over 6'0 then tom cruise is 5'10 and its all a big lie about him being short
Chris says on 18/Mar/14
If Will Wheaton is 5'10, then Jim is obviously over 6ft: Click Here
Pallin 186cm says on 17/Mar/14
Jim parsons thrives on the fact that he Works with short cast members, so he can tell anyone that he is as he claims, 6'2". This is ridiculous since he is clearly shorter than Dj Qualls who is a legit 184 guy, and just by looking at Sheldon you can see that he is not even 6'1" imagine if hugh Jackman or Tom hiddleston would stand next to him, then his 6'2" claim would die on the spot
EzioAuditore711 says on 13/Mar/14
I'm 6'3'' and am a full head taller than somebody in the 5'5''- 5'6'' height range. If Kaley Cuoco is 5'6'' maybe 5'5'' and we assume Parsons is about 6'2'' she should be at about his lips. She isn't. Thus making him shorter than 6'2'' or 6'1'' for that matter. Plus he doesn't look a head taller than Galecki who's no more than 5'5'' and may be 5'4.5''. Just watch The Big Bang Theory.
EzioAuditore711 says on 13/Mar/14

I\\\'m right says on 9/Mar/14
I'm smart and I say Jim Parsons is just above 6". I heard 6'1/4" Maybe just over 6" on SNL.
SomeGuy says on 7/Mar/14
Parsons looks about 4" shorter than Conan who people tend to think of as dead on 6'4" at best. Take a look at this video standing beside one another from 3:45 onwards

HellBoundPower says on 7/Mar/14
Just saw a picture of him with Anson Mount on Twitter, and Mount looks to have an inch on him.
jordydecke says on 25/Feb/14
@ezioauditore711 he is more than just a simple six foot, I know the guys around him are all short but if he is, as you say, six feet tall then he's the tallest six footer I've ever seen compared to everyone around him.
EzioAuditore711 says on 23/Feb/14
Why haven't you downgraded him yet Rob? He's 6 feet tall.
Hi says on 7/Feb/14
He is tall
Rhonda says on 28/Jan/14
Emily says on 13/Jan/14
@Rhonda A 9 inch head at your height is actually on the bigger side. 9 inches i think is the start of "big" for female head length. Mine is at least 9 inches (not sure how long exactly), but i'm almost 6 feet tall.====== Ok, I am not sure on the average head size for female head size is. My bf head is 10 inches and he is a head taller.
EzioAuditore711 says on 20/Jan/14
He's not 6'1.25''. Looks barely 6' next to 5'6'' (maybe less) Kaley Cuoco.
Lorne says on 17/Jan/14
His head really isn't that long, in fact it can look smaller to me...
I\'m right says on 15/Jan/14
He's about half an inch Shorter than DJ Qualls, so 6' 1/2"
dennis 186 cm says on 15/Jan/14
6'1" is probably right , even though short cast members, during the seasons we meet some of pennys boyfriends WHO are legit 6'4" guys and there aint much difference between them and sheldon

Rhonda says on 11/Jan/14
Rob Leonard Nimoy head is bigger than Sheldon's on the photo just measured it, please check again as we think you are wrong here, Nimoy's head is bigger than 9.5inches, it is long. I am 5ft2 and my head is about 9inches and I've a small head and face.
[Editor Rob: I know it's slightly longer in the photo with Jim...

you can compare nimoy's head to mine, it is very similar I believe]
Emily says on 10/Jan/14
And what's his face length? 21 cm? He has a very high hairline.
[Editor Rob: I don't think his head is over 9.5 inches and with an at most 3cm hairlevel, 21-21.5 face length might be right]
Emily says on 3/Jan/14
9,5 inches? No way. His head is definitely longer than that
[Editor Rob: look at His head with leonard Nimoy who I met and his head isn't longer than mine.]
EzioAuditore711 says on 29/Dec/13
6 foot flat,maybe a very strong 5'11''.. Doesn't tower over Kaley Cuoco and she's only 5'6''. I'm 6'3'' and am a full head taller than my grandfather who's 5'5''-5'6'' range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Dec/13
He can look 187-188cm at times on TBBT because he's rake thin and the short cast
Gheist says on 20/Dec/13
Anywhere around 183-185 is good for him, he towers everyone in the show, but considering Nayyar is at max 171cm is a lot of difference. Since he is tall and skinny he looks taller, 183-184 for him is my bet.
Mr. R says on 28/Nov/13
Actually, I'm wrong Jim referred to himself as 6-2 on the tonight show last week.
Mr. R says on 23/Nov/13
I was at the Tonight Show taping tonight with Jay Leno, and Jim said at one point that he was 6-1. But when he came to greet Leno, he clearly was not three inches taller than Jay. Rob has this one right on the nose!
Sarah says on 4/Nov/13
He is about 6'1", good listing.
Rhonda says on 20/Oct/13
Blaze most of the cast are sub 5ft6 so you'd tower over them like one of Penny's taller bofriends, taller than them even I think I searched and Some of Penny's boyfriends were in the 6ft3-4 range and towered over Sheldon.
Emily says on 19/Oct/13
He has a weird head shape and it's quite big too. 10 inches long?
[Editor Rob: not sure it's quite that long, maybe 9.5ish]
Blaze says on 3/Oct/13
I thought he was 6'2 since he completely towers the cast. wonder how I would look with the cast since I'm 6'5...
jim says on 13/Sep/13
I'd say 184cm. He's surrounded by tiny cast members and his skinny frame makes him look taller.
Balrog says on 10/Sep/13
183? Jesus Christ.
Viper says on 9/Sep/13
183cm at best
Lorne says on 30/Aug/13
Wasn't he listed 6' 1 flat? That's closer, he doesn't look taller than 6ft0.75in DJ Qualls.
Rhonda says on 8/Aug/13
Lomax says on 14/Apr/13
Him and DJ qualls are the same in height on the episode
-------------------------------------------
exactly I saw that too and Qualls is 6ft0.5. I saw a picture of Qualls and Bradley Cooper 6ft0.5 and Bradley Cooper was slightly taller. search for it.
HellBoundPower says on 8/Aug/13
If Jim is 6'1.25" DJ Quills is almost 6'2". He edged him out on The Big Bang Theory.
Viper says on 8/Aug/13
No way is he this tall.
spainmen says on 30/Jul/13
I would say 185 cms he gets towered by 190-191 cms pennys ex-boyfried zack
Rhonda says on 17/Jul/13
Jim Parsons with Matt Bomer listed as 5ft11.5 and Rob lists him as 5ft11.25 they look the same height in these photos, if not Matt Bomer probably pips him by a little.

Jim Parsons is 6ft to 6ft0.5, points of reference is Riki Lindhome who played Ramona Nowitzi is 5ft9 and he had 3 inches on her. He is currently in a play with Lee Pace who is 6ft3 and he has 2.5 to 3 inches on him. Christine Baranski who plays Leonard mother is 5ft10 she isnt far from his height.

jamz says on 8/May/13
He's about 6'0". He's just skinny which fools people into thinking he's slightly taller than he really is
Mike 181 says on 24/Apr/13
6"2 in shoes..
Lomax says on 14/Apr/13
Him and DJ qualls are the same in height on the episode
Emily says on 1/Apr/13
Btw, i don´t think short people look taller per se. It´s the physical build that creates the illusion of being taller. Mostly the length of the legs, if you have shorter legs than another person your same height, you´re gonna look shorter.
Emily says on 1/Apr/13
How long is his head? Just wondering...
jack bassmaster says on 25/Mar/13
yeah he is 6ft 1 maybe 6ft 1 1/2 but when he wears shoes he is every bit 6ft 2 look at the scottish guy ferguson who is 6ft 2 he was the same height as him
LOL says on 17/Mar/13
@del how the hell is 6'1 6 inches taller than 5'5? i normally wouldnt call anyone out for that but you claim to know measurements and math.. what are you 12?
B.T. Stomp says on 13/Feb/13
Today I did background on 'Big Bang Theory'.
Kunal (Raj) came right up us to put his drink on the counter.
He politley said 'excuse me' and wished us a 'good morning'.
When he was right in front of me he looked to be his listed height of 5'8".
Johnny (Leonard) walked by me and looked a little taller than his listed height of 5'5".
Then I saw he was wearing big boots.
Jim (Sheldon) walked by from a distance but looked about my height 6'1" if not just slightly taller, maybe 6'1.5"
Simon (Howard) I only saw from the bleachers.
When I watched them rehearsing from a tv monitor Johnny looked about the same height as Simon.
Since Johnny was wearing big boots and Simon I think converse sneakers that would mean Simon has around 1" on Johnny.
Didn't really get to see any of the girls.
Except Mayim (Amy) walked by us to go offstage when I was sitting.
Then Kaley was on the bleachers with Johnny thanking the audience for their participation.
They all seem very nice and I hope I get booked on the show again in the near future.
Ramsay says on 20/Jan/13
How is it a "myth"? It's basic perception, skinnier people always do look taller which is why it's accepted as being that way, you having a couple of people overinflate your height doesn't change that
bostonmike says on 15/Jan/13
It is a myth that people, who are thin, look taller than what they really are. I was 6'0" tall when I was in highschool and 175 lbs and people thought I was about 5'11". I am currently the same height but a 195 lbs and people think I'm 6'1" or 6'2". When your thicker, you look bigger. When you look bigger, you look taller. It's simple you idiots.
leonari says on 11/Jan/13
The guy always looks tall...cause he is.
del says on 10/Jan/13
Oy he's lanky so he looks taller (I'm 5'7 and people think I'm taller cause of it) but he's at least 6'1..if you know measurements and math, galecki is 5'5 which if parsons is 6'1 that's an 6 inches difference and that's apparent...I'm 6 inches taller than both my sisters and you can definetly tell, when I look at them I'm literally more than a head taller...if u watch them all together in a close scene, he's way above a head taller
Josh says on 9/Jan/13
looks around 6'0.5 (184 cm)
Mastro says on 2/Jan/13
Funny that people are quoting the life sized cut outs- do you really think they get all six sigma with those? They could easily be an inch or so off.
balrog says on 25/Dec/12
The slight downgrade is perfect Rob. Also I'd put Galecki under 5'5'' now you add Nayyar at 5'7''
Jack says on 23/Dec/12
I think 6'1" is right for him. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would lie about his height, so when he said he is 'six-two' he probably meant it in shoes.
Silent D says on 13/Dec/12
185cm.
Johnnyfive says on 29/Nov/12
I watched him on Leno the other night and when Jim was talking about a life sized cardboard cutout his mom had of him he said "its 6'2" obviously the cutout is in shoes because its from his show so if he's 6'2 in shoes, then that means he's 6'1 barefoot (185cms).
tony t. says on 26/Nov/12
Thought he was like 5'11 or something closer to that. Didn't realize he was quite this tall.
FACE says on 19/Nov/12
Solid 185cm 6'1
Now that he has put on some weight since the first series you can see he is not 9 inches tall than Leonard
alex says on 7/Nov/12
Definitely NOT 187cm. Closer to 184-185cm. He doesn't that much taller than 5'4 Simon Helberg. 187cm is way to tall. He needs a downgrade.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Oct/12
Yeah 186-187cm looks right. Close to 6ft2
balrog says on 21/Oct/12
He's bulking up for the role of Flash I think. 185-186 cms.
Silent d says on 7/Oct/12
6 foot 1. Rob did you upgrade him from 6 foot 1? I remember he was listed as 6 foot 1. He is deceptively built. He looks lanky but i think he wears layers of clothes to make himself bigger.
AD says on 11/Sep/12
This is Jim next to 6'0" (or slightly under) Leonard Nimoy

Interesting that people still refer to Jim as 'skinny'....this is a cast picture with a rare shot of Jim in a short sleeved T-shirt in the last season, looks pretty bulked up to me!
Click Here
zero says on 10/Sep/12
Parsons is probably a solid 6'1'' and pretty skinny. In TBBT looks 6'4'' because the rest of the cast is short, the tallest male after him is Kunal Nayyar (Raj) who looks in the 5'7'' range.
SolidSnake says on 3/Sep/12
Looks about 5'11'' on BBT. Maybe I'm missing something
witchdoctor says on 14/Aug/12
He's a flat 6 ft1(1.855m)
Tommy says on 11/Feb/12
I think maybe he's a bit below 6'1.5. He looked a touch taller than 6'.5 listed DJ Quall appeared on the show. I don't think it was a full inch. 6' is too low. I'd go with 6'1.
SIlent d says on 9/Feb/12
Solid 185cm.
I KNOW says on 2/Feb/12
I know for a fact Jim Parsons is 6'. 2 inches shorter than Letterman. The same height as other 6" guys. People don't look at dimensions. Like me.
MrGoodGuy says on 25/Jan/12
I should mention that I like this actor and his portrayal of Sheldon in TBBT, yet I feel this is an obvious over listing. Judging solely based on the show my estimates for the cast members and the video clips with Letterman where he was clearly a bit shorter (an inch or a bit more) I thought 6.05". In perhaps the most recent episode Sheldon is shown in solid looking footwear looking shorter than a 73" inch life sized cardboard cutout of Zachary Quinto which can be found as identical to the one found online through Google stating this 73" height. Accounting for the possibility of a shoe with only .6 inch heel and his mediocre posture perhaps 6 foot is even more accurate, the 6-2 claim may have been made in order to cover up the true height of the smaller cast mates.
