He has a big torso that is progressively collapsing of late like Gérard Depardieu, His sitting height is shockingly affected but back when he was in his 30s he was way taller.

188-189cm looks about right next to Quentin Tarantino and Chris Penn.
Around the same in Donnie Brasco w/h Depp and Pacino. In Kill Bill I couldn't find a decent shot of him with Uma Thurman to tell but I reckon an easy 2in if not more in his favour.

Rubbish posture will make any 6ft2 guy a weak 6ft1 or less. He may have had surgery.

mmmm...i am not sure about the fact he ever been and seemed a honest 6'2".
for example look at him in getaway (1994). at times he probably was at "peak" and he didn't seem for sure 2,5" taller than Alec Baldwin (5'11.5")...the curious thing is that they had both same shoes (cowboy's boots).

i think he was in youth 6'1.5-1.75" while today he has already lost 0,75" so 6'0.75-1" is right on!

His posture is probably a fixed feature by now. Still looks a solid 6'1' in almost every comparison. A barefoot Michael was at least as tall as Daryl Hannah in 3 inch heels in Kill Bill, even though he he had his customary slouch.. Hard living costs you some extra height by your late 50's. Someone who burnt the candle at both ends for 3 decades, yet still looks 6'1'', could quite easily have been a weak 6'3'' with the good posture of early adulthood.
Lorne??? says on 14/May/15
Yeah Andrea, that is an example of him looking 187...

@Arch Stanton: He could certainly pull off 6'2 in the 90's; but do you really think 187 is laughable? I mean if he's 184-185 today, then certainly 6'2 was the most h could be, and I'm just suorised your so completely ruling out any less than that, when normally you're one of the most open minded here.

I just don't see him losing more than an inch of height in his 50's, and since he looked 187-188(IMO) then 6ft1.75 seems fair enough.

I seem to be one of the only people who thinks he wasn't a full 6'2, though, even with this new evidence.
misha says on 13/May/15
Nice photo - I would say the excessive leaning neutralizes his extra inch in
footwear so we're seeing him as he really is relative to you. I'd say 6'1.5".
Thus 6'2" twenty years ago is certainly credible. And only people who are
modest about their height lean like that, which implies a general modesty.
Mon says on 13/May/15
His legs always look long, at least a strong 6'2'' at peak. Hard living has probably lost him more height than others his age.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/May/15
184-185cm w/h Rob.
Mon says on 11/May/15
Doesn't care to stand tall, could still be close to 6'2'' if he wanted to get bolt upright. As can be seen above he is kind of hunched but looks like someone with height in reserve. He hasn't much of a neck so his rather big shoulders are where a taller man's would be.
Josh1 says on 9/May/15
I thought he was 6'0.5
Maximus says on 9/May/15
6' to 6'1....not short by Hollywood standards.
Andrea says on 4/May/15
He can look 4-4.5 inches taller than Jonnhy Depp in Donnie Brasco... I can certainly buy 6'1.5, maybe 6'1.75 at a stretch but not the full 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/May/15
He looked 189cm in Reservoir Dogs and Donnie Brasco. Not under 6ft2 peak.
Lorne??? says on 3/May/15
He could look 187-188 in the 90's, Andrea.(At least if you trust my judgement).

I always though 6'2 was generous, I mean I wouldn't have completely ruled it out, but with him being barely 6'1 today, I just can't see it, unless we are supposed to honestly believe he's lost 2.5-3cm in his 50's???

To top it all off, Rob says 184 isn't ruled out, and he also looks that mark at times.(like in this pic). Then again, Rob also said he looked a big 6'2 in cowboy boots...

Peak height 6ft1.75, I still give him, and a liberal 6ft1 now.
A6'1Guy says on 1/May/15
@GP You do realize you shrink with age? Not to mention that everyone shrinks throughout the day?
GP says on 30/Apr/15
It's amazing that some people by watching movies can just tell someone's height. I always thought he was 6'2" due to always being the tallest in his movies until I dealt with him 6-7 years ago and realized that there is no way he was 6'2" or in that range.
Andrea says on 28/Apr/15
Arch, based on what does he look 6'2 in Reservoir Dogs? On his "proportions"? 189 is Brandon Routh's range and he never looked as big as that!
Andrea says on 28/Apr/15
Dmeyer, he looks near 185 in this picture, no less than 4.5 inches taller than Rob (and possibly a fraction over)... And all this not considering Michael's posture! Rob said he's losing max an inch with him but he also has got around an inch more in shoes... I think 185 is the most he could be today... Weak 6'1! And i wouldn't worry too much about the fact that he can look smaller than Quentin Tarantino since Rob has shown some pictures where he can look more 5'9!!! Having seen some pictures of him, he's actually a guy who's got terrible posture at times...
Arch Stanton says on 28/Apr/15
Rob watch Reservoir Dogs again, this guy was looking 189 in it to me!
Arch Stanton says on 28/Apr/15
See his 90s film, yes, this was about as good an example of 6'2" as you could get IMO.
Arch Stanton says on 28/Apr/15
I've seen most of his 90s film and anything under 6'2 IMO is laughable. In fact I'd say in some films he could pull off 6'2.5 more than 6'1.5. He was undoubtedly minimum 6'2" I'd say. Today he looks struggling with 6'1 but might be posture.
Lorne??? says on 27/Apr/15
I never thought he was a legit 6'2, to me he looked a good 187, like 6ft1.5-75. Of course he could look 187-8 in the 90's, but I never believed h ha lost that much height by age 50.

But I kept my mouth shut, because everyone else thought he was a legit 6'2 guy. But now with this photo, he needs a downgrade. He looks 6'1 range here, with the cowboy boots.

Of course pics can be deceptive, but this looks a good pic. He certainly isn't over 185cm.

I think, at least downgrading him to 6ft1.75in peak would be fair, as he wasn't less than a very strong 186/7. Today.

Today, he likely is 6ft0.75 at low.
Dmeyer says on 27/Apr/15
Not considering posture he looks 9-9.5cm taller if he has 11-11.5cm eye Level , so plus 2.5cm posture so so about 12cm about 6'1 minus boots more 183cm but i do bélieve he is 185 but how Côme in moSt pics he looks smaller than Tarantino
Andrea says on 27/Apr/15
Naa, Dmeyer... He doesn't look as short as 6' in this photo, but he looks max 185... Rob did say he's not losing more than an inch compared to himself so, considering the shoe difference, he's max 6'1 today! Good chance he's a weak 6'1, IMO! Never been a big 6'2 guy, i can buy 6'1.5 at peak, though! Remember he's only 56, maybe he's not lost a full inch! Rob, what do you think about a 6'1.5 peak and 6'0.75 today?
[Editor Rob: I need to see him in early 90's stuff again.
I think the cowboy boots helped his posture, as I say I seen him standing around talking with a crew and this photographer (who himself is near 6ft) and he was over 6ft 1 and near 6ft 2, that was the best I saw him standing for 20 seconds.

ewan says on 27/Apr/15
well if rob has seen him in person and saw what he looks like before and after the photo was taken then he is most likely 6'1 as listed.
mId says on 25/Apr/15
I'm a little chocked by this 6'1 listing actually.. I saw him a few years back at a convention here in Sweden.. I'm 6' and my brother who was with me is 6'1.. and I don't think he was my brothers height.. I would actually peg him at my height or one or two centimeters under me even.. But I didn't really study his height so I can't say for sure about this one, I'm just saying I wouldn't have guessed he would be 6'1 from what I saw. Seemed like a cool guy though.
Oanh says on 25/Apr/15
Michael is slouching enough to lose 1 inch next to Rob;however, he gets it back with the 1" heel advantage. Pretty much evens out. I'd give him 6'1". He was great in Donnie Brasco.
Christian says on 25/Apr/15
Seems like he has back problems but standing up straight today I agree he looks around 6.0.75-6.1.
Arch Stanton says on 24/Apr/15
@Rob I told you he was struggling with 6'1 with Gareth Thomas!! He was in cowboy boots and barefoot 6'3" Gareth Thomas still looked noticeably taller!
Judd says on 24/Apr/15
I agree with 6'1.5" peak height and 6'0.75-1" current one.
Dmeyer says on 24/Apr/15
Looks 6ft on thé pic and 1in more shoes he looks 5'11
Andrea says on 24/Apr/15
Yeah, i see what you mean, Rob... You're saying you've been quite "lucky" he didn't stand as bad as he did with some of the other congoers... In any case, 6'1 is the most he could be today and he easily might drop a fraction under it! You're still convinced he was a big 6'2 guy, though? He didn't look that tall with Johnny and that actor Chris Penn listed at 5'11 (in The Reservoir Dogs)!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Apr/15
Losing 1in at 57 is pretty bad though.
the shredder says on 23/Apr/15
Looks 6'1 with the slouch , 6'2 with posture , take off the inch of boot you get 6'1 or around that
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Apr/15
He's not standing good here at all...
Andrea says on 23/Apr/15
He didn't look a big 6'2 next to Johnny Depp (in Donnie Brasco)... I think 6'1.5 peak and 6'1 max now would be more appropriate!
Andrea says on 23/Apr/15
If he's standing pretty good here, then how can he be 6'1? He doesn't look over 6'1 and he's got an inch more than you! He looks more 6' range... And since he's only 56, i highly doubt he's ever been a legit 6'2 in his life!
[Editor Rob: he has lost height in last decade I believe.

The point is compared to me he's actually standing decent and the photo isn't bad. I think he looks near 185 so at worst would be 6ft.

With other people though he can struggle to look anywhere near it.

One last example to show what it could have been like...this guy in person who looks between 5ft 5 and 5.5: Chap with Ramsey and Madsen.

It's not too bad a photo for showing him close to his height, because as can be seen, he can look 5ft 9 with 2 guys who are actually 2-3 inches shorter than myself :)
]
The Exorcist says on 22/Apr/15
The picture above isn't good for judging how tall he is because of the slouchy way he's standing, leaning in towards Rob with his arm around him, and almost pushing his chin down into chest. The only clear thing we can tell for sure is that Rob's eye level is below his mouth.
[Editor Rob: he's actually standing pretty good here, he's not losing more than an inch compared to myself...

Look at This photoAnother photo. Bear in mind that guy is leaning and in person he's a couple of inches shorter than myself. So he's standing about 5ft 5 there and Madsen isn't over 5ft 9.5 in comparison.

It could have turned out a lot worse ;)

Moke says on 22/Apr/15
I don't think he ever was a legit 6'2''. But he always has had a very poor posture. Same here. Difficult to say how tall he really is.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Apr/15
He's developed a bit of a squashed neck.
berta says on 22/Apr/15
dont Think he lost that mutch. was probably 187 and is 186 now
Judd says on 22/Apr/15
Terrible posture! If that guy is 6'3 then he doesn't seems taller than 6' but the posture is terrible.
However if he standing straight is 6'1" today than I wouldn't put him at full 6'2" as peak height.
6'1.5" or even 6'1.75" is better!
Andrea says on 22/Apr/15
Lol, and that's how a 6'2 guy (considering he's probably got an inch more footwear over those guys too) would look? He looks 6' tops... Again, for the third time, what about his posture? He must have a terrible one to explain this...
josh b says on 21/Apr/15
Brilliant photo rob :) shame I couldn't get one with him but hey ho
[Editor Rob: I was only one at this moment in room with him as I was later getting this pic, so seeing him standing with the photographer and crew he looked a 6ft 2 guy, but then seeing he had cowboy boots I think he's around 6ft 1 range.

As I said to you, I did ask him if he wanted to do a back to back pose but he wasn't up for it.

He is actually standing pretty good here! He could have looked a lot different, for instance: With a 5ft 4-4.5 guy and a 6ft 3 guy...]
Andrea says on 21/Apr/15
He's only 56 and he's already lost an inch, Rob? MMM... Was he standing fine here with you or not? If not, he's not even 6'1 (today)... Of course, Rampage has "guessed" him 189 at peak, strange :)
Hypado says on 21/Apr/15
Yes i believe in Peak height was 6ft 2in (188 cm) for Michael Madsen.

Great actor by the way.
GP says on 21/Apr/15
He was never more than 6'1". I dealt with him about 7-8years ago and he was 6'1" then. I don't understand the height loss. He is in his 50's and was most likely 50 when I met him. It's not like he was an action star doing his own stunts like Jackie Chan. I could believe a cm loss but a full inch/3cm?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 21/Apr/15
Rob, is 184cm possible today?
Andrea says on 21/Apr/15
Looks 6'1 at best with you, Rob... If you consider he's also got an inch more in footwear, he looks 6' at best in the picture!!! Do you think he was losing some height in posture when the photo was taken?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Apr/15
He might be 186cm today.
Not under 188cm peak, though.
JJF says on 2/Apr/15
Looks correct, Rob.
No more than 6'1" - stood next to him at LAX check-in three years ago, the guy had some serious cowboy boots on and he had about 1.5" on me (I'm 1.84m).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 21/Mar/15
He looked very imposing in Reservoir Dogs...reminded me a bit of Ben Affleck.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Mar/15
He's put on fair bit of weight and rarely appears sober at events now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Feb/15
Rob, would surgery have something to do with his height loss?
[Editor Rob: wear&tear maybe.]
cole says on 1/Dec/14
Did you get a pic or did you just see him up close, Rob?
[Editor Rob: yes, I was 'late' for the photo so just on my own with him.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/Nov/14
188-189cm range peak
Andrea says on 1/Oct/14
Too bad Rob met him and he would have given him 6'1.5 if there was even a chance he was that tall :)
[Editor Rob: no he actually looked 6ft 2 although he had cowboys on.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 30/Sep/14
186-187cm standing straight.
Arch Stanton says on 21/Aug/14
Looks easily 6'2" in Kill Bill Volume 2.
grizz says on 14/Aug/14
My lord, his height loss is even worse than in case of Schwarzenegger-3 cm loss and he didn't turn 60 yrs!
Crash says on 10/Jun/14
avi, studies show the height loss beginning around 30ish and slowly building up after then, so that by 60 on average 2cm has been lost for a man, and 3cm for a woman. These are just averages so some lose less by this time (or perhaps even none) and others will lose more but the majority of people will have lost at least some height by 60.

By 80 it will almost always be very noticeable height loss though... well over an inch generally.
avi says on 9/Jun/14
@Crash says on 7/Jun/14

shouldnt lose any height til 60s and should be very little. with good posture many men never lose more than 1/2 by 80s
Crash says on 7/Jun/14
Believe it or not most people have already lost a small fraction of an inch by 40 it seems, increasing to approximately 1cm by age 50 on average. So it's not so unbelievable that this guy shed a half inch by now.
Arch Stanton says on 1/Jun/14
Rob, there's a typo on Donnies is what I was trying to say!
Arch Stanton says on 30/May/14
Rob can you correct to Donnie? Back in the 90s I have to disagree jtm, he really looked a solid 6'2" next to guys who were listed 6'-6'1". Today I agree, he looks like he's struggling with 6'1" today.
[Editor Rob: he's a laid back guy posture wise and losing some height in his 50's has always looked probable.]
jtm says on 28/May/14
his posture is terrible but i don't think he was ever 6'2. look at the pictures with rourke in 2005 and he doesn't look taller than 6'0 in his recent pictures with tarantino.
Nick Breckon says on 29/Mar/14
When I wrote the Walking Dead Game Season 2 Episode 2: A House Divided, I met Michael Madsen who voiced the main antagonist of the episode... Carver.
He looked about 1.89 (6'2.5")to 1.90 meters (6'3"),any thoughts Robert? he looked like he was wearing flats to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Mar/14
I think Baldwin has always been 5ft11 range and just wore lifts in movies to hold his own opposite guys who are genuinely 6ft+. Madsen was 6ft2-6ft2.5 peak and now is 6ft1.5-6ft2. I don't think he's as low as 6ft1 flat even though he could look it on Big Brother.
Arch Stanton says on 12/Feb/14
In The Getaway he didn't look that much taller than Alec Baldwin oddly, maybe 2 inches. Baldwin did look 6 ft in that film though.
Captain Stewie says on 11/Feb/14
I'd say this about the Kill Bill star who is is in my Favorite video game...

Peak= 1.89 meters
Now= 1.88 meters
I can say this because I am a 1.87 man and he seem taller than me.
Mr. R says on 11/Feb/14
When I saw him a few years ago at a museum, he was still a full 6-2.
Cole Everett says on 9/Feb/14
I'm a 1.86 man and I saw him once after his Dishonored acting and he seemed a little shorter than me, posture? Possibly old age?
dmeyer says on 8/Feb/14
Charlie 176cm even with better posture He Will look max 10cm taller 186cm and He had slight more shoes from your peak He Is not more than 185cm
Arch Stanton says on 7/Feb/14
Rob can you add Donnie Brasco, Species, Free Willy and Mulholland Falls to the list?
Arch Stanton says on 7/Feb/14
Yeah he was struggling with even 6'1" next to Gareth Thomas but I think posture had a bit to do with it. Either way it's virtually impossible that he could still be 188cm if Gareth Thomas is 191cm. Thomas was still taller than Madsen wearing cowboy boots!! Granted though Madsen easily looked 6'2" back in the 90s and if anything look 189-90cm, in films like Reservoir Dogs and Donnie Brasco.
Dan Brody says on 6/Feb/14
I met him once and I'm 1.88 meters tall, and looked still the same as me, Rob have any thoughts?
[Editor Rob: I think his posture at times can make him look just 6ft 1, but between 6ft 1 and 2 range today still.]
Charlie238 says on 30/Jan/14
I met Michael Madsen this past summer at an airport. I was wearing regular sneakers and he was wearing boots which may have given him a little extra height. I took a picture with him and I have posted a link to it below. I am 5'9.25", and even though he is slightly leaning and is wearing boots, I believe 6'1.5" - 6'2" is about where he is at.

Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Jan/14
The current height range you got there looks spot on. He'd probably still be 6ft2 when he wakes up.
I reckon his peak was...

6ft2.75/190cm out of bed
6ft2.75/190cm early morning
6ft2.5/189cm morning
6ft2.5/189cm lunchtime
6ft2.25/189cm afternoon
6ft2.25/189cm evening
6ft2/188cm night
6ft2/188cm before bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Dec/13
Arch: Gareth Thomas? He's listed at 6ft3 and 6ft4. Rugby heights are usually spot on, so I think 192cm is possible for him.

As for Madsen, Reservoir Dogs and Donnie Brasco were two instances when he was cast with considerably shorter actors which might've added to the illusion of more height. I still think its quite possible he was 6ft2.25/189cm peak. Never 6ft3 though except in shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Dec/13
I'd be shocked if he was 6ft-6ft1 now. But he does struggle to look 6ft2. Gareth Thomas has been listed as 6ft3 and 6ft4. My guess is that he might be 6ft3.5. Those rugby listings tend to round those centimetres up or down e.g. 6ft3/192cm or 6ft4/192cm etc.
Arch Stanton says on 17/Oct/13
He definitely looks noticeably taller in films in the 90s than he did on Big Brother. It would seem a joke saying he was as low as 6'-6'1" when if anything he looked nearer 6'3" than 6'1" in the 90s but if you saw him in cowboy boots next to the rugby player on Big Brother who is a legit 6'3" and barefoot 6'2" looks a joke let alone 6'3". He was shorter in cowboy boots than the rugby player barefoot. I can't explain it, maybe he has lost an inch at least.
Arch Stanton says on 17/Oct/13
I think Penn had on sneakers though in Reservoir Dogs. He really looked 6'1" ish I thought in that film.
Arch Stanton says on 17/Oct/13
Yeah he can look 189-90cm in Donnie Brasco too.He's definitely not that today. He's shorter than the legit 6'3" Welsh rugby player in cowboy boots.Strange for him to have lost height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Sep/13
@Arch: Chris Penn might've worn lifts to look more imposing as Nice Guy Eddie. But I see your point. There wasn't much between him and Madsen.

I still think 6ft2-3 in the 90s is believable. If Tarantino is/was 6ft1-1.5, Madsen was possibly a fraction over 6ft2.
Arch Stanton says on 15/Sep/13
He was barely taller than Chris Penn in Reservoir Dogs. Granted he looked proportionally around 189 as Rampage says but Penn looked like 6'1" in comparison.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 18/Jul/13
In his 20s and 30s he might've been 6"2"-6"3".
Definitely looked 189cm in Reservoir Dogs and Donnie Brasco.
Brad says on 22/May/13
Looked 6'1.5" in Die Another Day as he looked to be the same height as Pierce Brosnan. (Both 6'2" peak heights listed) But he could have passed for 6'2.75" (190 cm) in Reservoir Dogs, no doubt about that.
jimmy says on 15/Apr/13
Arch Stanton says on 7/Dec/12
I have 2 or 3 copies of Die Another Day on DVD which I couldn't sell when I once bought up Bond collections and sold them off individually and made a profit. Nobody would buy Die Another Day LOL, second worst Bond film after View to a Kill in my opinion. Quantum of Solace, third worst.
[Editor Rob: I have multiple copies of films, I end up buying ones I've forgot about...I must have about 3 copies of casino royale...

ffs, the worst is that for some unknown reason I have 4 'collectors' copies of Red Scorpion...madness!]

At least A view to a kill had Christopher Walken .Rob were you a fan of Dolph Lundgren?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Mar/13
187-188cm today
188-189cm peak
Arch Stanton says on 18/Feb/13
Nup I've still got three copies of Die Another Day I think and gave away a few as copies so I definitely had about 5 at one point! Jaws is a cool film, nothing wrong with that!
Arch Stanton says on 18/Feb/13
6'5? for Madsen is crazy. I guess he could seem 6'3" in Reservoir Dogs. I used to have 5 copies of Die Another Day and 4 copies of World is Not Enough Rob! In the olden days when people were looking to replace their VHS tapes with DVDs I used to buy DVD boxsets and break them up and sell em and as you can imagine everybody already had those two so they always ended up being left.
Mikey T says on 23/Jan/13
When I watched Reservoir Dogs, I thought that he was at least 6'4" or 6'5". I didn't think that he was 6'2"
Ka says on 7/Dec/12
Arch, Die Another Day wasn't that bad, but I understand your argument. Too much sci-fi tech imo. Brosnan in that movie looks near 6'2 next to Madsen

Actually I saw Die Another Day last night and he looked evenly matched with Pierce Brosnan maybe a hair taller. Near 6ft3 in Reservoir Dogs and in Kill Bill. He has terrible posture. Maybe he's still 188cm and was 189cm peak. Looked really tall in Donnie Brasco.

Gareth Thomas has been listed from 6ft2 up to 6ft4 in the past. I'd say a strong 6ft3 maybe 6ft3.5 even?

Gareth Thomas is a solid 6 ft 3 guy, 6'3.5" is possible. I actually saw him last month in a car waiting at traffic lights just outside Bridgend but that's no good to estimate his height LOL. Madsen in cowboy boots was still shorter than him barefoot, 189 peak I strongly doubt. Granted he could look a full 6 ft 2 in his earlier films and did edge out Brosnan.
[Editor Rob: I seen gareth earlier this year at an event...I thought he was close to 6ft 3, but didn't look over it.]

The guy has bad posture it's evident in Kill bill and even in Reservoir Dogs. I'm betting this guy was like 6'3 in Reservoir dogs, maybe 6'2 3/4 in Kill BIll

Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m says on 6/Sep/12
He's only 53-54, he can't have lost much height (if any at all). Strong 1.87 m (6f1.75) peak, and still that today.

Trust me Jake if you saw him next to legit 6'3" Gareth Thomas you'd even be doubting he is as high as 6'1.5". He was still shorter than a barefoot Thomas in cowboy boots. I'll agree he looked a full 6 ft 2 peak, looked 6 ft 2 next to Colin Salmon in Die Another Day. But if you saw Big Brother at the beginning of the year you could see wasn't as tall as 6 ft 2 barefoot. I haven't been watching the new CBB as the "celebs" are just the worst going including that "Rhian I got texts from Vernon" bimbo.

In Reservoir Dogs he could pass for 6ft3...
Not suggesting he was that tall. But
189cm peak isn't out of the question
Shaun says on 27/Jan/12
When I saw him look only about an inch shorter though I think he was in cowboy boots and Gareth barefoot! But the fact he was an inch taller than Tarrantino apparently at one time would indicate he was 6'2" at some point. He's approaching mid 50s so might have lost a cm or two or maybe its just posture....
Shaun says on 27/Jan/12
Yeah I think 6'1" is more likely as he's been wearing cowboy boots a lot and Gareth seems to mostly be barefoot and he still looks more than an inch taller. He does look more 6' most of time because of his posture, as you say he can look more 184cm a lot rather than 188cm. I'm sure he's not what Rampage thinks though.. Gareth's a big guy 6'3" and 16.5-17 stone I think and Michael isn't close to that.
[Editor Rob: whether he has lost height I don't know, but it is quite possible today 6ft 1.5 is nearer.]
Shaun says on 26/Jan/12
Its 4:44 he's not slouching for once and the difference actually looks at least 2 inches and he's nearer the camera and in cowboy boots.. Can you only see an inch difference Rob?

Then he looks 4 inches shorter if you pause at 4:48. Gareth is a legit 6'3" but Madsen looks nowhere near 6'2" when they walk. I know its difficult to tell the exact difference but if you pause at 4:48 there looks quite some difference and its difficult to see how he could be slouching that much!!
[Editor Rob: he could be 6ft 1 today]
Small dude :( says on 23/Jan/12
6'2 when standing straight but his poor posture probably means he walks around at 6'.
Shaun says on 22/Jan/12
I caught a bit of it the other night and they were stood side by side and he was standing straighter and yeah he did look very close to 6'2" in comparison.
