Bill Murray Height

"The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with your enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself."

~ Bill Murray

Great actor and comedian, Bill Murray is known for his memorable performances in movies such  Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Tootsie, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Lost in Translation, among many others.

Bill Murray is a tall cookie -- even if he doesn't look like one. The why of it is anyone's guess, but Bill has been described as 6-feet-1 inches tall throughout his long and illustrious career.

And from what we have seen of Bill in his movies, we think he could easily be that tall.

He had never looked below this height, unlike many other celebrities. Even now he looks comfortably taller than people like Woody Harrelson (5'9"), Matt Damon (5'10"), George Clooney (around 5'11" but bad posture), etc.

And what is more, Bill is holding his stature pretty well for his age as well. Even now in his seventies, he looks to be above the 6 feet mark, unlike a nearly 6-feet-2 inches tall (in his prime) Arnold Schwarzenegger, who doesn't look taller than 5-feet-11 inches nowadays.

The height of Bill Murray is

6'1" or 185 cm

Height in his prime was 6'1¼"

"I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: 'try being rich first'. See if that doesn't cover most of it. There's not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job."
