How Tall

A list of celebrity heights


In 1998 I put together a small list of celebrity heights that were gathered from a few sources. The idea was to continually add new entries and have a comprehensive list of heights. Unfortunately I quickly gave up on the plan.

Here is the list as I originally wrote it several years ago, but with updates to the IMDb information and links.

Sources - Can you trust them?

People lie about their heights, so you have to take any height information with a grain of salt.

IMDb - The information in the IMDb largely consists of user-submitted data from both amateurs and industry professionals. This means that height information can come from any number of sources. Stats are not available for every person, but if it is, you can find it in the person's respective biography page.

Print / media publications - I'd like to think that print publications such as TV Guide have more reliable height facts than IMDb, but I don't know where they get their information. My guess is journalists get their information from what a celebrity or publicist says. And in some cases based on what public records say.

Where to find other celebrity heights

Curious as to the current state of celebrity height information, I searched around for a good repository.

Google technique

To find a person's height using Google, enter in how tall is, then the person's name. It works for most famous names. This trick is one example of Google's Q&A feature.

If Google is able to find an answer for your query, the top result will summarize the height and link to the source. I've noticed a variety of sources including IMDb and Wikipedia.
