Why do a lot of the fans on Tumblr and Facebook say that Eric was tall and handsome and say he was 5'10'? He doesn't look any more than 5'5" to me.

I think he was around 5'8 or something? He looks smaller in comparison to all the guys we see in the videos with him, but you have to remember that they were all well over six feet tall..  Smile I'm around the same height as Eric, so the fact that I could probably look him straight in the eye makes him look a lot less 'tall' to me!

Is 5'8" tall for a woman?

I don't know? It's not so tall around here, but I live in a country with really tall people and they don't look at me funny even when I'm in high heels..  ;) I think my perspective is a little skewed, because I'd say the height is normal for a woman and on the small side for a man.

Eric's autopsy says his height was measured at 5',8 1/2" As gruesome as it sounds, i know there was a lot of damage to Eric's head but i would imagine his autopsy records would be pretty accurate when measuring his height.
Maybe it was wishful thinking but Eric does record his height on his diversion records as 5' 11" on page 21. He filled this out when he was 16.

Yeah..Dutch men are actually the tallest ones in the world. My husband is about 6'3" and he does not stand out.

There is no way in hell that Eric was 5'11". He only came up to Dylan's chest!

Well, I'm about 5'7. I know someone who's 6'4 (about Dylan's height), and I only come up to their chest, so I really doubt Eric was 5'11. I feel like *some* fangirls just try creating this perfect image of Eric in their heads and would be really disappointed if they ever saw the reality.

I agree. There was nothing wrong with Eric but he wasn't the spectacular specimen these particular fangirls would like him to be. Sucks to be them I guess  Razz

Let's face it: if these girls had been around Eric when he was living they would not have given him the time of the day. He was good-looking and cute but too scrawny, too weird, too awkward. Not ''godlike'' in appearance at all. But he's been mythified, as Dylan has been so, there we go. And that means improving virtually what was not there in reality, such as adding a few inches whichever way you want   Shocked   Add that to the sex fantasies revealed in their diaries and some girls are bound (no Dylan pun intended) to be enticed. +100 for Eric wanting to go downtown, gives him a post-mortem edge.

Is there a shot of his drivers license somewhere? that would probably be the closest to an accurate height we could get.

(Update: I looked into it and it says 5'7" on his license) Apparently it was issued the 8th of May 1997. So in the time following it is possible he grew a little, but he certainly wasn't 5'11"

Because they're fan girls.

And I read that it was 5'8.

Yeah i agree. I'm not sure if he grew 4 inches in around a year, and then somehow shrunk 2 and a half inches before his death. I know it sounds really horrible but Eric was missing a large portion of the top of his head but i'm sure at autopsy this was taken into account for them to establish an accurate height measurement. So i guess he was more than likely between 5',7" - 5',8 1/2" as mentioned on his drivers licence and autopsy. This range certainly seems more likely. Maybe in his own mind he thought he was 5',11", I don't think he looks 5',11" especially when standing next to Dylan.
