Hi, I tried to update heights for Idris Elba, Brendan Fraser, Jim Carrey, Gustaf Skarsgard, Bill Nighy, John Travolta and Arnold Schwarzenegger. I have plenty of evidence to prove the current listings for these celebrities are wrong and submitted the updates but still, they have not been changed. I simply don’t understand why they would believe the current listings are factual but when you look at photos at them with other celebrities and see their own claims, they obviously are not factual.

Thanks for your help Will and Ed. I’ll let you know again if there are any more problems on IMDB that need correcting.

I have two more celebrities: Ben Affleck and Luke Hemmings. I got info from celebheights.com that Affleck says he's 6' 3" but is listed on IMDB as 6' 3.5" and Hemmings claims 6 foot and said 6' 2" at best but it could be interpreted that it was a joke but is listed on IMDB as a mind bogglingly optimistic 6' 4". Here are the links Ed https://www.celebheights.com/s/Ben-Affleck-454.htmlhttps://www.celebheights.com/s/Luke-Hemmings-48231.html

Those sites are useless. We had this discussion already. You can only use data from reputable sources.

Sorry about that. Anyway, I found a few photos I wanted to show you with Ben Affleck. Yes, you said photos are bad evidence but I don’t plan on sending these to IMDB. I just wanted to know if you had a preference on these. Affleck claimed to be 6’ 3” but is listed by Google and other sites as 6’ 4” but is listed on IMDB as 6’ 3.5” and a couple others. Based on these photos, do you think Affleck is 6’ 3”, 6’ 3.5” or even as high as 6’ 4”? Matt Damon is supposed to be 5’ 10” , With ex-wife Jennifer Garner who is 5’ 8” , With Henry Cavill who is 6’ 1” and 6’ 2” Will Smith , With 5’ 11” George Clooney , and finally 6’ 3” John Krasinski .

What? No. I just wanted your opinion. I’m sorry if I offended you that wasn’t my intention. These aren’t photo shopped I can absolutely assure you.

That was a funny! I was saying you could not put my face on one of the bodies!!!
Thats another reason that IMDb does not take photographic evidence. Photoshop!

Hmmm...they’re definitely photos out there that are photoshopped. However, I never said I was gonna use them to show IMDB. Also, I wouldn’t go far enough to say that these photos are photoshopped. In fact, I actually did look these up to make sure there were not photo shopped and results showed that multiple photos were taken at these same events. These are not photoshopped I can absolutely assure you. Like I’ve said before, I will not send these photos to IMDB either. I just wanted a preference from you. I don’t think his current height is accurate, but I’m not sure if 6’ 3” or 6’ 4” is a good fit for him. What can you guess from the photos above?

Thanks
Ian

No opinion. Don't really care.
Nothing personal.
Stats like that are just not that important to me.
They may be to you and others.
Cheers

It seems like 6’ 4” is his “official” height based on the listing on Google and other sites. I’ll just do that one since I can’t find the Newspaper where he said he was 6’ 3”.

In fact, I found an article from the Daily Mail that says he was 5 ft 4 as a teenager and then grew about a foot. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/mosl.... You’ll have to keep scrolling until you find the exact quote. Is there a way I can highlight it so they can easily find it?

Hi Ian,

Thanks for your responses and images. 

Please remember that we require documented evidence from respectable sources to verify corrections to the height of these high ranking names, images can be modified or include a shifted perspective.

Make sure to include any URL's in your height correction submissions and our editors can review these for you.

I might just leave IMDB. This is absolutely ridiculous. No matter how much evidence I provide to them, they are consistently rejecting what I have to show. And the editors don’t even seem like they’re looking my stuff over and actually thinking to themselves “huh what we have listed here incorrect, we should actually change this to give people more valid information”. It actually seems like they don’t even bother to look it over and just decline because they’re so overwhelmed by work. If you’re so overwhelmed and you don’t have time to look it over, why can’t you just accept it? Why do you think I want to change current information on IMDB, is it cause you think I’m a vandalist? Even if you do have time to look it over, just listen to what I have to say and actually understand why I’m changing this. Like I’ve said before, it’s insulting to me because I’m trying to help IMDb provide more realistic information out to the public.

Hi Ian -

We appreciate your submissions and the effort you make to update the site with accurate information, however if your submissions are not being approved this is because our editors are unable to verify or validate the source. 

To reiterate what Joel mentioned above,  in order to accept the height changes we will need valid evidence to substantiate the change, such as a media interview/article where the individual has stated their height.  We cannot accept images as valid evidence because they can modified or misinterpreted.

The only thing that would be reliable is information gathered and documented in a complete physical examination. Even the information that appears on a driver's license is not really guaranteed to be exact.

I agree with you on the Driver’s License Jeorj. Someone I know claims to be 5’ 6” but I know is really like 5’ 2” or 5’ 3”. It’s not guaranteed accurate. However, I’m giving IMDB articles from The Daily Mail where Ben Affleck is quoted in saying he was 5 ft 4 as a teenager but then grew a foot which is about 6 ft 4. I’m doing my best to give them verifiable sources and I’m just absolutely sick of them rejecting it. Just think, if they were really looking at it wouldn’t they be able to understand that this person has spent a lot of time trying to find verifiable sources and seen these sources are more than adequate and actually accepted it? It just doesn’t seem like they’re actually looking at this.
