Just from what I was told by someone close to him. They looked identical with similar dress shoes: Click Here Van Dame would probably be as similar with equal posture as they were at another premiere in dress shoes.

Both could have been Tough to tell because Van Damme can slouch. He still looks in good shape. Solid, but lean pounds in the 80's and early 90's looks right.

I thought he was messured on television lol. Look good in Movies and pictures. There is a scene in the movie nowhere to run where it shows a mug shot of his character and the tip of his head touches 70in.

And that pic of him in the mug shot was almost certainly taken in shoes. He's closer to 5'8"-5'8. Editor Rob: today I think Jean has dropped a fraction, but a few years back could still look nearer 5ft 9 at times.

Ha ha ha! Anyone with his success and money though shouldn't give a toss! He usually looks small in photographs, out and about in public and at appearances etc.

He doesn't resort to booster shoes like some. I think he just genuinely believes, or did at one point, that he was taller than he is.

I don't think Statham is over cm anyway, at most but that'd make Van Damme atleast range above. Something doesn't add up. I don't get it.

I posted here that he seemed 5'9. However, after carefully reviewing my photos with him, it would seem I was fooled by his JCVD baseball cap which gave him a little extra height on top of his head.

I am exactly 5'9" on the dot and I was 17 at the time so I was 5'8" back then and wearing adidas sneakers and he was wearing converse chucks and he was a good inch and a quarter taller than me.

So I would guess he was 5'9. The best scenes to really compare them were the scene in his brother's apartment and the last scene them walking in the park.

He could barely reach her height with shoe advantage. He had a better posture in his prime IMHO. It's not unusual to lose some height at that age.

All People are different. Pics can be found from JCVD instagram. Prime he looked 5 9 maybe lbs long arms and legs. He looked a bit under with massive 90 Dolph not as small as Stallone again.

I'd wager a strong 5 8 now Stallone a weak 5 7 Statham a weak 5 8. So Adkins is a big 5 10 or wears massive boots looked close to 6 ft.

Compared to Lil hem who is 6 3 ish looked 6 ft maybe more. I was curious that how Van Damme can look the same height or shorter than Mayweather in the recent pics posted by Van Damme.

Maybe he isn't as tall as you thought he is. He was most likely always 5'8". Editor Rob: Van damme I think may well have shrunk a bit, but 5 years ago he was still looking closer to 5ft 9 than 5ft 8.

Like I have been saying for a long time, he is nothing more than 5'8" possibly less and I even have a photo with him. Editor Rob: he could be 5ft 8.

Can def happen as I've lost a good few myself. I've gong from 5 9 and a bit to below 5 7. Has to be something to do with the mucsles. I recommend to watch the pilot not only for height gauging but also it's something different that he has done and he is good at it.

When he was asked his weight he said that he was 82kg, which is lbs if I'm not mistaken. I think in Kickboxer he was bigger than bloodsport.

But then I think he would probably cut out salt for few days before filming the fight scenes so he would look leaner.

When I saw him recently and actually we talked a bit for his show. He said that he had changed his diet and cut out meat pretty much and he wasn't lifting heavy anymore.

He looked closer to , maybe even Still very lean. Nowadays he is just a wet range. Rob you would probably be comfortably taller than Van Damme.

Rob, i believe there is a good chance Van Damme would meaure lower than you, he does not appear to average more than a 5'8 flat.

They are not same heights. Statham is and Van Damme is cm. Spot on that. I am almost 5'9'' tall maybe cm and George was about an inch taller then me barefoot.

On Georges facebook you can see him next to Van Damme and he is about 1 or 1 and a half inch smaller barefoot. So I say Van Damme is about 5'8''.

Is it me or are most of the action stars listed taller than they are? Philbin used to claim to be 5'7" remember he's 84 years old today and is MAX 5'6" today or under.

So he was around 60 in this video maybe late 50's. Anyway, it's a good height comparison indicator for Van Damme seeing they are both barefeet.

Which photos or any other evidence changed your mind? Editor Rob: I think it is just looking at him over the years really. Close to 5'10" in his cowboy boots.

In his early movies before he was a big star, he wore cowboy boots almost all the time. Then in the early 90's, he figured out the Stallone secret and started wearing a slight lift.

And whenever you watch his movies, pay attention to the camera angle, it's always placed about his waist height which makes him look taller than he is especially for someone who has a muscular upper body.

Losing height? Come on, he always used a stunt double, the only things he did himself were the kicking and punching and I doubt those make you lose height.

Now if we are talking about Jackie Chan, who has been doing his own stunts and has the evidence of broken bones, then that's a different story. I also strongly suggest to watch a specific scene from Street Fighter.

Scene with A. The actor is Simon Callow, who has claimed 5'7". After you watch that scene of them standing in front of each other in a full body shot, where Van Damme has military boots on and Callow has flat shoes, think again if Van Damme looks 2 inches taller.

Rob could you take a second look of him with Manchester City players, please? Editor Rob: losing half inch by his age might actually be possible, considering the amount of films he's done and the work involved Having said that given the cm measurement plus the.

Editor Rob: I don't have a link anymore. We both had on pretty flat bottom dress shoes in the pic. Not sure what this would make JCVD.

Not really buying that he's either. How tall do you think Nate and nick are based on this picture? Click Here Editor Rob: diaz could look 6ft with damme.

She the wife , said that Van Damme was short, about 5' 7" or 5' 8". This was many years ago, when he was younger.

He is nothing more than a 5'8". He likes to get closer to camera to look bigger. He is a nice person. Unfortunately I can't post the photo since it was during a show that he would be releasing sometime soon.

Either way, it's not that by posting the photo, his listing here will change anyway. I think Rob is pretty sure on his height.

Even then, people will start saying that he lost height because he is 55 and has done action movies. What year was it and whats your height.

He has cm on his facebook page. Last year a statue was presented to him in Belgium which stands cm.

Because I have a photo with him too and I'm wondering if he shrunk in mine. Litte taller than Statham. It must have been about I was 6' 2" at the time and I towered above him.

He can not be over 5 foot tall. I swear it on my life. The man is very very short. Not to mention, that he was very very rude.

Honestly, he is a very conceited, rude person. Just awful. Maybe he has lost a cm or two since peak, hard to say but im sure he is under 5'9 now.

I saw him once and I, at 5'7", was taller than him. He is 1. Which is not small and enough to look 1. Just watch that video where u see both jcvd and bolo yeung barefoot with a perfect angle and u see jcvd no more than 2 inches taller, precisely cm taller.

Click Here since Bolo yeung is 1. I reckon both Statham and Van Damme are clearing 5ft10 and possibly even near 5ft11 in those shoes.

They're chunky and look far more generous than what Dolph has. So you can safely rule out 6ft for Dolph.

About 6ft3 today. Rooker was an inch taller and Van Damme had some suspicious looking shoes on. I don't get why people even talk about his peak height.

The man is 55 years old, is in great shape. I think what confuses people is that in the 90's Van Damme had extra 20lbs of muscle which in camera looks big and back then he was a pretty big name and they wanted to make him look bigger than he was.

Look at him next to Roger Moore, I think Moore was in his 60's possible 70 at the time, so he was most likely 6' tall, during the premiers of the movie Van Damme would wear thick boots when Moore was in regular dress shoes and he still managed to look 4 inch taller than Van Damme.

Just because in screen the actor looks tall or taller, it doesn't mean that he is in reality. Van Damme, Snipes, Stallone and Statham were never 5'9".

Rooker is listed at cm. Today I think he can look close to 5'8. I'd give the same to JCVD. Time to downgrade Sly, Statham, Snipes, Banderas Also looked a full head shorter than 6'3 Vincent Kompany.

Obviously forgot his cowboy boots today. Even towered by kolarov and Vincent kompany. On daily mail.

In all those photos he looks 5'8", especially it's clear next to Aguero who is not even a full 5'7". Editor Rob: I might rewatch some early van damme movies again to see how he looked.

Be a great chance for you 5"8 to stand next to him and upload on here to show the height comparison and end the debate.

Obviously if your willing to pay that kind of money lol. Il stick with my guns and say hes between judging by people's experience of seeing him and his height in films.

Editor Rob: years ago when I had money I'd have did such a thing, but it's unfortunately not feasible to spend that much.

It's the same with Arnie - it would cost me quid to get a photo Maybe cm in thick shoes. They are both barefoot.

That makes JCVD cm. Maybe he was cm in his youth. Nowadays closer to cm. Btw Bolo Yeung was cm in his youth. Bolo was always a tad shorter than Bruce Lee.

I have talked to lot of people at Gold's Gym who have met Bolo and he used to work out there before and Nobody thinks he is 5'6".

They all think he is under that. I have always said it that JC is and is less likely. I have met and I know people who have met him. I can assure you that he even wears lifts, that's why when you see him barefoot, he looks shorter and in person pretty much everybody says he is shorter.

First he is the same height as Chuck Norris and Jackie Chan who are , if i'm right. Then he is little bit taller than Bolo who is And on top of that his statue in Belgium which is fullsized of him is Rob what you really think about Van Damme's height?

I mean i really would like to know because for me he is the best actor and martial artist and i even bow to him. I'm very curious but i need you to say exactly what do you think 5'8 or?

I think most of us here would like to know something rare and weird. I can't explain it to myself so i would be very extremely thankful to you if you answer me.

How is that possible? Is Van Damme or? Please answer and thank you. Click Here [Editor Rob: he can look a couple of inches taller, although I've not really looked at bolo properly.

He looks an inch taller than Statham is that photo. Statham looks really short in this picture but then he actually is I suppose.

Tho I do believe be can pull off 5'10 just. I am cm and can pull off a weak 5'10 with airmax or boots on. Tho some people seem to think he's 5'6 range.

His statue at Anderlecht is 1. Guy is a perfectionist so the measurements have to be right. He is also shorter than his 21 year old daughter but Van Varenberg loves show business.

After all he still claims to be from Brussels, father is from the south of Belgium, mother from flanders. He grew up in the rich area Knokke but thats not a good story and neither does it inspire working class kids to aim higher.

Every legit 5'9" person is taller than Van Damme. I don't know why anyone would believe Van Damme, the guy used to say that he was a European Kickboxing Champion, but then the real champ Don "the dragon" Wilson looked into it and found out that he was lying about it.

It's all about publicity. People at Gold's Gym in Venice say he is short, and I don't think any 5'9" or over that person will be called short.

He was towering over Van Damme throughout the fight which would make about 5'8"-5'9". Van Damme was wearing boots, but Attila was huge.

I start with 1. I could round up or round down. I usually round down. I mean, i dont care, if he is 1. But i dont understand, why he accept 1.

I doubt his Mother who was helping measure him would round down : ]. Doest it matter to you, rob? Click Here [Editor Rob: whoever manages his facebook page will have wrote the stats, but we've all seen Van Damme being 'measured' at If he measured himself that The trainer in KB is probably about 5"2 to make jc look taller.

Like I said van damme is 1. Rob and GP look at this pic of 6"2 lorenzo lamas and jcvd weather there is camera angle or ground platform jc looks 5"6 which I think is abit low for him.

And you are right that he was clearly shorter than Lewis in Double Impact, I think even in the scenes he was wearing his boots he was still shorter.

I even posted that same here long time ago under different name but there was no change. Unfortunately Rob doesn't see that, I guess he is the expert and this is his site.

That puts Van Damme in the 5'8" range, which I have been saying forever and I have even met him. When he was in sneakers he was shorter then he would wear boots in the middle of the summer and look couple inches taller.

He is most of the time working out or training martial arts and when he is not and he is at a premier he always does his kicking demo.

Watch Double Team movie with D. Rothman and M. Van Dame is wearing Chucks! He just doesnt care about height like Pitt or Cruise. Some men of 5'10" as VD almost is can look big.

Van Damme doesn't. I'd give Statham cm Rob. I crossed can be 1 inch more. Jeanne Goursaud. Dean O'Gorman. Belinda Bauer. Harry Belafonte.

He plays Lukas, an antihero struggling through life to nurture his eight-year-old daughter, and working in nightclubs as a doorkeeper to provide his income.

Van Damme was the first choice to play the titular Predator character in the original Predator movie, with the intent that he would use his martial arts skills to make the alien an agile, ninja -like hunter, but after few days shot, he left the film.

It was reported that Van Damme constantly complained about the monster suit being too hot and causing him to pass out; he allegedly also voiced reservations about only appearing on camera in the suit.

Additionally, it became apparent that a more physically imposing actor was needed to make the creature appear threatening, against a team of soldiers featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger , Jesse Ventura , Bill Duke or Sonny Landham.

The role eventually went to Kevin Peter Hall. He was set to star in No Retreat, No Surrender 2 , but backed out. He turned down the role of Gunner Jensen in the first installment of The Expendables and the role went to Dolph Lundgren.

In , a statue of the actor was unveiled in Anderlecht, Belgium. The artwork, which depicts a younger incarnation of the Muscles from Brussels in one of his fighting poses from the movie Kickboxer , was commissioned to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Westland Shopping complex.

Van Damme said the statue "represented the dream of a Brussels kid" and was "for all the children who want something bad", adding that "if you believe in something strongly enough, it can come true".

According to the lawsuit, Dux also accused Van Damme of lying to the public about his martial arts fight record, stating that when Dux tutored Van Damme while Van Damme was laying carpet for a living, Van Damme exhibited a lack of martial arts skills.

Van Damme's lawyer, Martin Singer, responded, "There are records to document his martial arts acclaim. Why, just look at his movies; he didn't get those roles on his acting ability!

He's the one who does those splits on chairs. He doesn't have a stuntman to do that. Stallone finished by stating "Van Damme was too strong.

Seagal wanted none of it. In October , Van Damme, along with other celebrities including Hilary Swank , Vanessa-Mae and Seal attracted criticism from human rights groups for attending an event in Russian federal subject Chechnya 's capital Grozny on the 35th birthday of Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov on 5 October.

It's inappropriate for stars to get paid to party with him [ In the French-speaking world, Van Damme is well known — and often mocked — for the picturesque aphorisms that he delivers on a wide range of topics personal well-being, spirituality , the environment , women, dogs, his ability to crack walnuts with his buttocks, his realization that Christianism is flawed based on the fact that "snakes are nice" and "apples contain pectin which is anti- cholesterol ", etc.

He later explained that he was trying to communicate bits of his hard-earned wisdom to young uneducated people dreaming of success, like he used to be himself, and had to struggle with the time constraints of TV, with his difficulties reacquainting with the French language, and with the effects of jet lag , often resulting in a clumsy, haphazard delivery.

His public image in the French-speaking world became a major theme of the movie J. The original video game Mortal Kombat was conceived as a fighting game based on Van Damme.

That fell through as he had a prior deal for another game under the auspices of the Sega Genesis platform.

Ed Boon and John Tobias eventually decided to create a different character for the game named Johnny Cage , who is modelled after Van Damme, primarily from Van Damme's appearance and outfit in the martial arts film Bloodsport.

In January , Van Damme featured in an Ultra Tune television advert which was part of a controversial series of ads. In October , Van Damme rescued of a three-month-old chihuahua, saving her from euthanasia after a legal tussle between Norway and Bulgaria.

He was arrested for driving under the influence in But what can I do? I'm not perfect I'm an extreme bipolar, and I'm taking medication for this When I was young, I was suffering those swing moods.

In the morning, the sky was blue [when I was] going to school, and to me, the sky was black. I was so sad. Van Damme has been married five times to four different women.

Then of course, Van Damme is leaning. Click Here. Jean-Claude is taller than Jay by like almost an inch. He is taller than Sly. He was looking well under even, maybe around But then I've seen Lundgren in person too and he was towering tall, probably a full head above me.

Now seeing this photo with Van Damme, Lundgren and Statham it seems like Van Damme isn't that much shorter than Lundgren and may well claim cm height.

But I think there is a trickery in this photo - Lundgren is a step back than the other two and Van Damme is half a step in front of Statham, so this might cause the illusion.

Unless Van Damme has somehow grown up since the early 's I can't in any way believe he is cm. I'm not sure today, but he still is in remarkably good physical shape Emre T?

I am not sure, but sometimes little seeds are planted, just more mentions of 'short' in articles and online over the years. At the same time in Van Damme met Magic Johnson: Click Here Rob, since you admitted that cm for Van Damme is easy to argue in his prime, just give him this mark.

Rob, I think that 5'9. My friend paid quid for a photo with him and thought he's my height now Still in great shape, seemed a very nice guy.

I could see a peak of 5'9. On all the photos taken that day he leans forward and pulls you down with him so an accurate height comparison isn't easy.

With older Alain Delon Click Here. He looks like a little boy. I always thought an honest stature of around cm for him, barefoot. Nowaday, maybe half an inch less but I'm not sure Perhaps he is So 5'8.

Harrison Page is 5'9. So van damme was only 5'8 at his peak. So either one of them was wearing lifts or one had bad posture during the picture.

I think his agent used to push him to claim 5'10". He never looked it really. I'd say he's 5"8 and he has aged very bad in the face considering he was good looking guy in the s I think the drugs took their toll there, added to which JCVD is a smoker and a drinker, and suffers from manic depression.

He's said many times himself that even when his body is in shape his face now looks old and rough. He's always had a fairly small frame, and this stops him from looking short though when he's around much bigger guys he can look tiny.

I'd say he's 5"8 and he has aged very bad in the face considering he was good looking guy in the s. I was quite surprised when I looked up his height afterwards.

Just goes to show the difference in height can often look far greater than it is. I sometimes think I look really short on photographs with friends who are over 6 foot I'm 5' Blackwood had 6 foot on his Spotlight page, but I don't know if he ever really was that tall Def 1 cm taller than stathom.

He need to fill up more by having more beef burgers, fries and mashed potatoes. But you're right - he has good proportions generally - an athletic structure and long limbs.

JCVD does have proportionately long legs, though, which is probably part of why he can look taller on screen.

At Van Damme admitting he's 5'9" should slow down the requests for Rob to upgrade him. I've always thought Van Damme looks to have surprisingly small feet and hands.

But that's a whole other discussion - Celeb Shoe Size! I'm 5'10" tall, but they often say, 'Oh, you're so short! When i was a little kid ,i imagined him as being around 5ft10,never imagined he is a tall guy.

On the video with JCVD he looked well over 6 foot. There was indeed quite a difference between the two men.

Here it is with a timestamp: Click Here He also mentions being a size 9 shoe. Credit to JCVD for being more honest this time.

I had actually thought the exact way Blackwood asked might be a good way to get a more honest claim while the opposite approach such as Howard Stern asking Wesley Snipes if he was 6'1" emboldened Snipes to claim 5'11".

First time I've heard him claim 5'9". I'll mention at the top 5ft 9 as I think that is probably his most reasonable admission, he didn't seem to like being thought of as 5ft 8.

He did seem like he'd be 3 inches smaller than Blackwood. But you must be 5'8? Van Damme kind of agrees, but then pushes for an extra inch and says 'well And i think the range is quite proper for JCVD.

One of the reasons this site is successful is because stars aren't always the height they look on screen.

You have to watch out for camera advantages as well. The person closer to the camera will look taller than he really is. You can briefly see Van Damme walking with Dolph behind the scenes around 21 or 22 seconds into this video: Click Here And you can see the difference when they almost got into a fight at Cannes: Click Here Van Damme has to crane his neck when face to face with Dolph.

He was easily 7" shorter. Roger Moore was a solid 6'1" guy in his prime, but may have been shorter by the time of The Quest since he was 67 during filming and 68 when it was released, but he was still a lot taller than Van Damme, though I don't remember the exact difference.

I do remember James Remar was about an inch taller and Remar was no more than cm range himself. You said there is a decent chance that he was a little over 5'9".

Rob, will you give him an upgrade to 5'9. Yeah it's very rough. I tried to re-create it with a friend and it gave me 1. So it's possible that the cm measurememt was a bit under cm in reality.

Obviously I can't confirm anything, but I would estimate it to give at least half an inch in height. However I do think Van Damme was peak personally still.

You can see a really good side angle of the dress shoes both Sly and Van Damme were wearing in the first photo I posted from the Paris premiere showing us neither have elevators and Sly doesn't even have a bigger heel.

You can't have Sly at 5'8" and Van Damme at 5'9", it just doesn't add up. Both could have been 5'9" peak and indeed, I wouldn't go any lower than 5'8.

If you want to see what Sly looked like in lifts with Van Damme then look at the Planet Hollywood days: Click Here Van Damme looks a couple of inches shorter there and I think both were even wearing cowboy boots, though Sly must have had lifts in his.

He was only a few inches taller than 5'5"-5'6" range Regis Philbin in the early 90's as well when both were barefoot.

I would say Van Damme was 5'8. Van Damme: 5'9" peak, 5'8. You can't ignore all the evidence or make up things about elevator shoes.

The only times elevators were worn in these comparisons were Stallone in the 90's Planet Hollywood photo and probably Norris in a few of the photos, though not necessarily all of them.

There's never been any evidence Statham wears elevators and he doesn't even seem to care about his height. Can damme also doesn't seems to haveost much or any height.

This includes their WCW appearance in '99 when Chuck wore sneakers. And Van Damme does not look taller than Stallone even when Sly wears normal shoes and this was in when Sly was 66 and Van Damme only I'd say he was around 5'9" flat in his prime, but if he was still at his peak height in then he may have only been 5'8.

Nothing less even in because he was taller than Mario Lopez in 2 separate interviews and likely just edged out Statham, but if you look at Van Damme in his prime with 5'6" Bolo Yeung and 5'6" max Regis both in bare feet he doesn't seem that much taller, especially with Bolo.

He certainly wasn't much, if any taller than Chuck Norris as well. Now at 57, Van Damme looks somewhere in the 5'8"-5'8. He had proportionately long legs for his height so he could look taller in movies, especially with boots.

Click Here In all the times they've been seen together since , Van Damme never looks taller than Chuck: Click Here Similarly, Van Damme has never looked taller than Stallone either from the 90's to the Expendables 2.

Sly and Chuck wear lifts, but we've seen Sly without lifts at 66 still looking as tall or slightly taller than Van Damme if anything and who is to say that Chuck has worn lifts literally every time he's been seen with Van Damme for over 30 years, even their WCW appearance when Chuck wore sneakers.

Sly and Chuck were both somewhere in the cm range so Van Damme was as well and more likely a weak 5'9" peak. He looks closer to 5'8" these days. Van Damme isn't always taller than Statham either.

Depending on the event, one can be slightly taller than the other which suggests to me they're about the same height: Click Here Click Here At the time of the Expendables 2 when he was , Van Damme would struggle to even hit 5'9".

From that, and other photos I saw, I totally see Van Damme being a strong 5'9 guy at peak, and maybe, a weak one today, even tho I still see him at cm.

We were both wearing driving shoes and I would say he's about 5''6 in height. Please, Rob, give him a quarter-inch upgrade in his prime. It's a decent chance Van Damme could have measured a little bit above 5ft 9, at times in 90's he could look a comfortable 5ft 9.

I think hes maximum today. I believe the guy was cm tall. However, Sly seemed to edge Van Damme in with both in dress shoes and then with 1.

Van Damme was taller than Mario Lopez in two separate interviews around that time, though, so maybe 5'8. I would like to watch the clip If I remember rightly, you couldn't see the measurement on the tape so it didn't really prove anything.

You just had the word of JC and his mum for it. I wouldn't put great faith in the measurement, it looked as rough as a badger's arse.

They're about the same height just as I remember since Van Damme has a raised eye level, but Chuck's head is at least as eye, if not higher depending on how much his rug I have to make this quick and go into hiding after that hair crack, but Van Damme has yet to look taller than Chuck in all their appearances together from the set of Missing in Action in to that WCW appearance in I know Chuck started wearing elevator boots, but did he have them each and every time he appeared with Van Damme?

Did Chuck have lifts in his sneakers in ? If Chuck was 5'8. He didn't look taller than that at the time of The Expendables 2 and he was a very fit 51 year old so there's a good chance he was still at peak height.

I'd give Crews 6'2"-6'2. Even Rob said Dolph was looking about 6'3" range then, but Crews at most 6'2" in comparison. Even a cm Dolph would have Hasselhoff looking more 6'3.

But I thought Dolph looked more than recently with Rob's 6'2" friend Big D, who himself made Michael Madsen look short: Click Here so I actually still believe Dolph is about 6'3" when he stands straight.

And his posture really isn't good yet he's comfortably taller than Chuck Liddell who Rob has 6'1. It's why there's very little distance between the top of their heads in those pictures, so Dolph's head will be even bigger proportionately considering he's lost an inch minimum, probably more.

That will make him taller than he appears if you go by eye level. I really do think he's still going to stretch up to or near the 6'3" mark if measured.

He's still taller than solid 6'2" Terry Crews these days even with bent knees: Click Here cm is the lowest I'd personally go, but for today as opposed to 5 years ago I think 6'2.

But I have a current Rock at 6'2. Both can look shorter with posture. I almost exclusively judge Dolph by how he looks with other six footers.

Think 6'2" flat maybe a morning 6'2. I do agree on Dolph he's 6'4 at his peak and likely 6'2. Looks 6'3" and change, which I think he still was at that time.

With 6'2. Same thing 2 years earlier at the Expendables premiere Full pic: Click Here There are more pics and even a bit of video from that premiere, which show the same thing.

Dolph can look 6'3" or so even more recently, but I concede it's possible he's dropped slightly below it the past years. Dolph looks shorter when he slouches like with Conan, but how can you explain him look taller here?

I do remember Conan taller in the video, but I'd have to see the video again to see if Dolph even stands decently at any moment.

I doubt Conan is even a full 6'4" barefoot, though. If Sly was even cm in then that would mean JCVD would have to have lost 2 cm in one year for that measurement to be accurate.

The photo with Dolph is 5 years old. Dolph was still 6'3" minimum then How is Dolph minimum 6'3" 5 years ago when 6'4" Conan O'Brien had minimum 1.

Click Here Click Here. Dolph was still 6'3" minimum then, but could look shorter in some photos, especially with much shorter men.

Van Damme may have been cm in shoes. I doubt Van Damme was more than 1 cm max taller than cm Chuck Norris as well since in all of their appearances together, Van Damme has never appeared taller.

For instance, Dolph could have been near his 6'5. The question, imo is whether Van Damme was more or more range peak. I think Van Damme is a good cm nowadays and he was cm in peak.

Editor Rob: to be fair, it wasn't exactly the best measurement. Yes Rob! If you work hard like many bodybuilders and you make dangerous movies like Van Damme and you don't care your healthy you lose height before than normal people.

But I think lose or don't lose height is more important the genetics and the age, how much older is worst but is good have good genetics.

You should see people like Morgan Freeman or Steven Spielberg they are older but have same height that when they were youngers.

Genetics is important too. And to take care oneself! Look at him during the Expendables 2 five years ago. He was no taller than Stallone in similar shoes and if anything, Sly may have been slightly taller.

Both men could have been 5'8. I agree with Dolph at cm today, but I'd say he was cm during the Expendables 2 five years ago. I pretty much agree with Rob's listings.

Somewhere in the range. I also believe Van Damme lost 1 cm or so the last few years, but was probably still at or near his peak height during the Expendables 2.

I don't believe Statham has ever worn elevator shoes at a premiere either and if Van Damme has, I don't think he is at any of the Expendables events either.

I think JCVD has a simple 3 cm dress boot. But whether Van Damme ever was cm, I agree with Rob that he's not over cm today.

What do you think about it? Anyway I think Van Damme and Jason are a strong cm nowadays barefoot not less. Also as you sharing up the page, the actor said "5'10 feet" well, it's important.

To me he's honest. Editor Rob: Van Damme I think in last few years did succumb to a bit of loss. Look at him barefoot with Regis and Kathy Lee.

During Expendables 2 he was similar to Statham, possibly a hair taller and similar to Sly with both in dress shoes, perhaps a hair shorter.

Similarly, Van Damme was taller than Mario Lopez in not one, but two interviews and you can see when he kicked he didn't have lifts.

So I'd say 5'8. Don't know if he was ever taller than that, but a weak to flat 5'9" can't be far wrong peak. But he's seemed to drop height since Expendables 2 and is looking closer to 5'8" at times.

I'm sure he wore lifts at certain events but even on the red carpet we all have seen him doing his spinning kick and believe me, doing that on lifts is a bit dangerous besides difficult.

I'm surprised. I am not so sure I dont think he was any shorter than this listing , by now maybe but he isnt shorter than statham.

Click Here Editor Rob: he can look close to 8 inches taller. Kompany is 6'4" I have met him. Pierre who is listed at 5' There is no more than an inch between them.

I believe around is where it is. Is it relevant that they have Cuban heels along with lifts inside? As funny as this is though, JCVD without said boots looked noticeably taller than Mario Lopez who claims the 5'11" without any caveat!

The latter statement may have been true, but she left out one important word. Actually, come to think of it, so are you when you transform into Big Rob!

He could possibly be below 5'8. I can tell you though I have a photo with him and he is barely 5'8", more likely below that.

Chuck actually had sneakers that time, doesn't mean he couldn't have had lifts as well, but it got me thinking, Van Damme has never actually appeared taller than Norris when they're together.

I am 5' 7". He was the same height as I. I believe he wore raised shoes also. Just from what I was told by someone close to him.

They looked identical with similar dress shoes: Click Here Van Dame would probably be as similar with equal posture as they were at another premiere in dress shoes.

Both could have been Tough to tell because Van Damme can slouch. He still looks in good shape. Solid, but lean pounds in the 80's and early 90's looks right.

I thought he was messured on television lol. Look good in Movies and pictures. There is a scene in the movie nowhere to run where it shows a mug shot of his character and the tip of his head touches 70in.

And that pic of him in the mug shot was almost certainly taken in shoes. He's closer to 5'8"-5'8. Editor Rob: today I think Jean has dropped a fraction, but a few years back could still look nearer 5ft 9 at times.

Ha ha ha! Anyone with his success and money though shouldn't give a toss! He usually looks small in photographs, out and about in public and at appearances etc.

He doesn't resort to booster shoes like some. I think he just genuinely believes, or did at one point, that he was taller than he is.

I don't think Statham is over cm anyway, at most but that'd make Van Damme atleast range above. Something doesn't add up. I don't get it. I posted here that he seemed 5'9.
