Seems a bit low he was listed 6 ft and 5 11 all over likely peak.
He actually played the big guy in many movies but tv can add some.
Pretty good actor until he lost his a list now he does garbage like seagal.
He was much bigger than peak De Niro who must be under 5 8 he looked nearly 6 ft 200lb.
He looked above average in Black Hawk Down and there were lots of tall guys in that.
Conversely he was a couple inches under the 6 ft plussers on Ryan.
Editor Rob: he actually looked barely 5ft 10 in reality...whether he shrunk by age 50 I'm not so sure, I suppose in Lock Up he could look more solid 5ft 10+ range and he was peak range there.

Sizemore always looked from 5'10 flat to 5'11.5 in shoes, no more than 181 cm, no less than 178 cm. All of his movies gave me this perception. In Saving Private Ryan he looks a good two inches under solid six footer Tom Hanks, who maybe had a better footwear advantage; in Heat he looks a full 5'11.5, an inch under Val Kilmer, but i think he wore lifts; in Striking Distance he looks a solid 5'11 alongside 5'11.75 Bruce WIlis, and both didn't wear boots in many shots, so i assume that they were only a little bit their barefoot heights. I'd put him at a good 5ft 10.5, weak 5'11 max.

He looks more 5'10 rob. I guesse .25 is a range he'd fall between, but since you said he's barely over 5'10, does that make him 5'10 flat?
Editor Rob: he is roughly around 5ft 10 range, but for a measurement may well manage more.
truth said on 17/Jun/16
Never struck me as more as 5'10.5 tbh. Probably lost only a cm or so.
starman said on 1/May/16
Listing is correct. Maybe was half an inch taller in his youth. Looked 5 ft10.75 next to keanu reeves in point break
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/16
I think he wears lifts regularly. Used to always look like a 6fter in the 90's
amaterasu said on 25/Mar/16
@ Mark, or your cousin just got measured 5'10.5" in early morning, meaning that he will be sub 5'10" by the mid day, something about 5'9.75". Thats why he looks no more than 5'10" flat to you. I think it is quite hard to actually see the difference between someone who is genuinely 5'10" flat and 5'10.5".

@Mark I measured my friend and he got 5'10.5", at times my friend could look more 5'10" flat at times. It is possible that 5'10.5" could be your cousin's morning or noon height and that's probably where he got that claim from or 5'10.5" was really his afternoon height or he could be just simply BSing with you, who knows.
said on 28/Jan/16
Hey rob, I have a question. My cousin claims he is 5'10.5, yet only looks 5'10. Even his physical has him listed at 5'10. Could he be considered 5'10 range or just 5'10 flat?
Editor Rob: might have the ability to stretch up taller near 5ft 10.5 when measured, but normally holds a far less tall stance?
said on 18/Jan/16
Hey rob, how much of a height difference did you notice between tom and Michael madsen?
Editor Rob: well because of madsen having near to inch more footwear he could look taller than if he had the same sneaker as me. Sizemore really was a guy around 5ft 10 range, I believe barefeet there's at least 2.5-3 inches between them.
Luke said on 20/Dec/15
I agree, it is strange he almost as tall as Nicholas Cage. Maybe he was wearing lifts?
dmeyer said on 19/Oct/15
I met the guy 9 years back he was a good in shorter than me so 5'10.25 no less we were eye to eye i was barefeet he was in shoes 1-1,2in so 5'10.25-10.5 tops
said on 19/Oct/15
, in several picrures he is as tall as cage on same floor 5ft 11 peak 5'10 now he is a guy who lost 1in at 50
said on 2/Sep/15
Rob, was he about the height in person as Mike Tyson?
[Editor Rob: roughly, both looked over an inch shorter than Malcolm the photographer (who is right between 5ft 11 and 6ft).]
Michael said on 27/Aug/15
Thought he was taller, looked taller than robert de niro in Heat and the same height as val kilmer, but probably all the drugs he did decreased his height.
J said on 9/Jul/15
Is this his mid day height? Probably wakes up at 5 ft 11
said on 18/Jun/15
Rob, when you put down someone as 5'10.25, does that mean that 178.0 cm would be their absolute ever lowest?
[Editor Rob: I think for his career a strong 5ft 10 range, sometimes he could look a good 179, but then in person he didn't really look over 5ft 10.]
Db said on 5/Jun/15
Rob you aren't standing straight.

John says on 1/Feb/15
It's pretty trivial, if he looked 5'10.25, then in person he could pull off 6'0
Lmfao makes no sense
J said on 16/Apr/15
How in the world does he look 6 ft in films?
said on 31/Mar/15
, solid 3cm over snipes Wish confirms 5'10.25 peak i think 5'10.25 peak
said on 17/Mar/15
How did you estimate the .25?
[Editor Rob: from the movies he can look in that range, in person he looked about 5ft 10 mark]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/15
Rob, weak 5ft11 peak?
said on 1/Feb/15
It's pretty trivial, if he looked 5'10.25, then in person he could pull off 6'0
[Editor Rob: never could Tom pull off looking 6ft in person...unless he wore lifts!]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/15
I thought he was 6ft!
said on 6/Nov/14
Would you consider him tall?
[Editor Rob: pretty much average range, in person he certainly never came across as what you could say was tall.]
Arch Stanton said on 6/Nov/14
Had a good two inches on De Niro in Heat!!
said on 12/Oct/14
How did you estimate his height in person?
[Editor Rob: he looked shorter than a 5ft 11 guy when talking with him and looked about 5ft 10 up close.]
Dmeyer said on 20/Aug/14
Dosnt look 6-6'1 in Movies but 5'11 defenetly
said on 27/Jul/14
Hey rob, is it possible for a 5''10.25 person to look 6'0-6'1? Tom being an example?
[Editor Rob: can't really see Tom looking in that range in films, and in person he really is roughly 5ft 10 that time I seen him]
said on 1/Jul/14
Rob there are several pics were tom looks same height as n cage how is it possible
[Editor Rob: I don't know but in person Tom is shorter than 5ft 11 men]
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jun/14
In Ticker to be fair he actually looked nearer 5 ft 11 than 5 ft 10 next to Seagal who looked between 5 and 6 inches taller.
Sam said on 21/Mar/14
What would his iseam be? He looks like he has a long torso.
said on 21/Feb/14
6 ft friend? Any pics?
[Editor Rob: sorry can't show it]
said on 25/Jan/14
Hey Rob, I think Apu means if Tom was the tallest person in the room.
[Editor Rob: there was a few people who met him before me and several were taller, my 6ft friend got a photo after me and he looked around 5ft 10 with him aswell.
they've changed the photo system since 2012 in these showmasters events - you you can spend a lot longer in the 'photo room' - the photos get printed within 20-30 seconds of being taken so I have managed to see actors with more people whose heights I have a good idea of.]
apu said on 21/Jan/14
I mean was he tallest there? Sorry for bad english.
said on 21/Jan/14
Were you the only person there?
[Editor Rob: not sure what you mean? There are of course other people getting pics with him aswell...]
austin said on 31/Dec/13
Did he give an impression of 6'0 in natural born killers?
said on 24/Dec/13
Night height for him?
[Editor Rob: probably 5ft 10 on the nose]
said on 19/Dec/13
Rob even if the boot front Is slim wish Can take off 3mm tom's heel are big enaugh to give 1.2in the heel must be 1.4in but gives more 1.1-1.2in
[Editor Rob: I don't think it's more than 1.25 inch style, when I saw them I thought about that.]
said on 19/Dec/13
What were ur footwear rob?
[Editor Rob: I had an inch sneaker, he had that weekend These boots
...maybe a little more than me, but they certainly weren't big cowboy boots, just normal sized boot 1-1.25 range]
said on 2/Dec/13
Yeah he looks about in that range. But rob, not to go off subject, I just need a little help. If you self measure yourself on a tape measure, and if the back hits 5'9.7 and top hits 5'10.3, which is more accurate.
[Editor Rob: your floor/wall might not be perfectly straight, so try it on another house or wall and if you still get a bit of difference, just go with the average of 5ft 10.]
said on 29/Nov/13
rob, what is the difference between 5'10.2 and 5'10.25?
[Editor Rob: a few sheets of paper...no real difference]
Bacon and Eggs
said on 16/Nov/13
What footwear was he wearing?
[Editor Rob: a cowboy style heel, but not one of the 1.6 styles, more a fraction over 1 inch.]
Arch Stanton said on 15/Oct/13
He's a good actor yeah, but there's something about him that unsettles me. I don't like the look of him or Ed Burns but they're very good in Saving Private Ryan.He looks around 5 ft 11 in Saving the big R.
Len said on 10/Sep/13
He was a huge jerk in Celebrity Rehab or whatever. Hard to say if it was mostly a put-on for the cameras, or if the guy has some really serious issues. Maybe both.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/13
I'm shocked he was only ever 5ft10-11 range.
He always looked more imposing than that.
said on 5/Aug/13
in person he looked 5 ft 10 flat right rob do you think maybe he was 0.25 in taller at peak
[Editor Rob: could be a guy who lost height by his late 40's, a fraction is possible]
Louis said on 20/Jul/13
Peak Height was 180cm now 178cm
Dmeyer said on 28/Mar/13
I met him on a tv show , i was an extra by a pool so was barefeet , he had a solid 1.1-1.2 in shoes was similar in height with me barefoot , i remember he was as tall as Rob low That day who had a solid 1.7 in shoe , then i wore my shoes 1.3 in style , and was a good in taller than him so 5'10.25-10.5 is a possible for peak not 5'11 , Rob has him Right was very noticably taller than 5'8.5-9in Joe pantoliano on the set , Rob low was about 5'11.5 biker
Boots on so no more than 5'10
LG69 said on 26/Mar/13
2" or slightly more than Rob. Very likely he stands 5'10.25".
said on 17/Mar/13
What was he like in person Rob? I always get a contemptible impression of him.
[Editor Rob: he had an interesting talk that day, the guy's certainly had his troubles, but is a good actor.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/12
At peak could look 181-182cm
truth said on 20/Oct/12
lol rob kinda like me when I forget my belt.
said on 10/Oct/12
rob did he look a fraction over 5 ft 10 in person , or did he look similar ti cristophe lambert
[Editor Rob: he looked a bit taller than lambert but he had more footwear than lambert did. I'm not sure he's really lost height so a decent 5ft 10 range peak is likely I believe.
oh, he came into that photo area with his zipper/pants half falling down, a bizarre sight!]
dmeyer said on 10/Oct/12
rob when i met him 8 years ago he looked about 179cm , you saw him at 5 ft 10 whi did you upgreat him 5 ft 10.25 , i remeber he was 5 ft 11.5-11.75 in 1.2 in dress shoes since i was barefeet and we were very close , the when i putt shoes on he was a shorter my shoes were big in the 1.3-1.4 style so was near 6 ft 0.75 with them on he looked aboout 5 ft 11.5 shoes on but he did look a bit taller than a flat 5 ft 10 , he also was as tall as 5 ft 10 rob low who had 1.7 in biker style , 5 ft 10.5 10 years ago make sens right about 5 ft 10 today
jtm said on 8/Aug/12
there are some sources claiming he was born in 1964. either way i think he was always 5'10 flat.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 29/Nov/11
He looked 5ft 11.5 in The Relic, maybe the supporting cast was below average.
Dmeyer said on 22/Nov/11
This Guy could pass fOr a weak 6 ft in movies
said on 21/Nov/11
Hé didnt look under 5'10 Rob Right ?? I was barefeet NeXT to him hé had a 3cm heels we seemed close then i had shoes on and hé seemed a good shooter but i had 0.2in more shoes so 179cm 8 years ago seems right
[Editor Rob: I think 5ft 10 today is fair for him.]
said on 19/Nov/11
Rob hé steel looked 179cm 8 years ago when i met him is that possible
[Editor Rob: I saw the guy numerous times over a weekend and think 5ft 10 today is his height, he looks maybe a guy who has lost a cm over last 5 years. The guy's had a lot of trouble, mentally, physically, financially etc.]
carnegie said on 8/Oct/11
5ft10.5 hes short i mean hes a chubby guy who looks at least 5ft11.5
jake, 1.82 m said on 29/Sep/11
1.79 m is closer, I agree with the downgrade.
len said on 6/Sep/07
in THE RELIC he looks a good 182~183cm ..
dmeyer said on 9/Aug/07

RICHARD said on 2/Apr/07
Tom's accurate height seems to be 5'11. On Shooting Sizemore he dosen't look 6' or anything above this.
dmeyer said on 29/Nov/06
i met him anything fron 5'10.5 to 5'11 is believeble
Antron said on 16/Nov/06
just watched Heat, great movie... 5'11" looks right based on him with De Niro
dmeyer said on 26/Oct/06
in the pic with hanks hanks has floor advantage and posture so no more than 2 3 cm diferance in person looks close to 5'11
dmeyer said on 9/Aug/06
in that pic hanks looks 184 near 186 burns
MOF said on 16/Jul/06
Val Kilmer was taller than Sizemore in Heat.
J. said on 30/May/06
In the film "Heat", Sizemore's character is described as "about 6 feet tall".
dmeyer said on 30/May/06
