Daniel Craig height: 5ft 10.25in (178 cm)

British Actor best known for playing James Bond in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, in addition to starring in films like Cowboys & Aliens and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. A resume once had him listed 5ft 11, although one newspaper said "he pointedly refuses to reveal his height. "I'm five to six feet".
His co-star in QOS, Gemma Arterton, said in the Mail on Sunday "Daniel is 5ft 10in but when they put me in heels, I was taller than him and it didn't look good on screen...Daniel had to wear shoes with a lift in them and stacked heels for a few scenes, but he took it very well. He thought it was funny"

filippo to be honest i don't know what 177cm looks like but i don't think hes over 5ft9 sankalp do you think he has the same built as you?
sankalp says on 19/Apr/14
I think he's same height as me 5ft8.5in.!!
Filippo says on 17/Apr/14
MMh Daniel doesn't seem a full 178... his body proportions suggest he is slightly shorter than Brad Pitt, for istance.
My bet is 177 (weak 5'10) for him..
jamieorr4 says on 12/Apr/14
Realist i think 5ft10 is average im 5ft10.5 i feel average 5ft8 is kinda of short imo
Sam says on 10/Apr/14
His daughter does appear a little taller, maybe by half an inch, considering the footwear discrepancy.
SAK says on 10/Apr/14
Realist says : 176 he has broad shoulders and looks big, giving impression of a taller guy.
-------------------------------------------------
I have to agree with Arch Stanton on this one. I dont think he gives a tall impression at all. He in fact looks short for his height.

He does have broad/wide shoulders but he also has short arms and is generally stocky so gives a shortish impression overall. I personally think he is between 178-177cm.
Realist says on 10/Apr/14
His daughter is wearing about 2.5 inch boots and he has 0.5 inch sneakers.His daughter might be 179 and he about 176. So he is probably 5'10 in the pic and his daughter 6'1.
MD says on 10/Apr/14
@Mr. R,

I'm not sure how tall is daughter is, but that picture was pulled from a very recent entertainment media news article about daughters taller than their fathers. lol
Mr. R says on 10/Apr/14
I don't think 5-10.25....Unless his daughter is 6-3!

Realist says on 9/Apr/14
jamieorr4 and Arch Stanton id be actually very happy if he'd be between 5'8 and 5'9. Its kind of nice to see an averegish guy as Bond, even in height. I am 174 and i feel i have a similar figure. He is not short more on the lesser side of average.
jamieorr4 says on 1/Apr/14
i think arch stanton is right his body frame is too small for him to be 5ft10 imo im 5ft10.5 i think i have bigger body frame than his does i think he is between 5ft8 and 5ft9
Arch Stanton says on 8/Mar/14
I have to disagree with that one Realist, his build if anything makes him look stocky and shorter.
Realist says on 7/Mar/14
176 he has broad shoulders and looks big, giving impression of a taller guy.
Sam says on 2/Mar/14
I would have said a 5'9 guy that loves wearing shoe lifts thus giving a taller impression a lot of the time. Solid 5'10 range should be Pitt's listing.
Alucard says on 2/Mar/14
Lift wearer, no more than 5'9 on a good day... People should stop comparing actors in pictures and such to guess height, since every one of them is a liar and 95% of them use lifts...
Realist says on 25/Feb/14
Most believable range is 176-177.
Hypado says on 19/Feb/14
178/179 cm
tiktak says on 3/Feb/14
he never comes off as a giant in his films, just normal height

my guess is near the high end 5-9 until lower 5-10 range max.
chrissss says on 31/Jan/14
its funny cuz on snl he looked the same height as kenan, and on a talk show, the host was 5'8 and he was the same height, is it possible craig is 5'9 rob?
007 says on 15/Jan/14
Daniel Craig's Height Is 5.10 Without Shoes Is Confimed
Jesse Stone says on 9/Jan/14
I think Craig isn't under 5ft9.
177cm - 178cm is a credible height for Daniel Craig. In Madame Tussauds he was the same height as my dad who is 177cm !!!
sabot says on 6/Jan/14
Spot on listing IMHO.
truth says on 3/Jan/14
yup 176-177cm
lelman says on 2/Jan/14
177cm, maybe barely 178cm. I can't see him taller than 5'10".
Vibram says on 27/Dec/13
The barefoot beach scene in 'Sylvia' with the 5ft8 > 5ft8.5 Paltrow confirms he is no way 5ft8. That is too low. He is a strong 5ft9 evening height guy or a weak 5ft10 morning. Click Here
Stef says on 4/Dec/13
Met him in London a couple of weeks ago. He looked around my height (5'10), maybe a tad shorter.
Not sure about his footwear, though.
My guess: 5'9.5.
Realist says on 3/Dec/13
Solid 5'9.
avi says on 29/Nov/13
Not sure how people can say 5'8. 5'8 is not at all representative of his from. He could be 5'9.75 but I think he is an even 5'10. He's not 5'10.5 or 5'11 . 5'9.5 is minimum he'd be 5'10 is tops.
5'8 is below average and Craig is an average maybe 1/2 over average height.
HeightMan says on 13/Nov/13
The moment some guy becomes popular his height is increasing, even here. Looks shorter than 5'10''.
James Bond 007 says on 8/Nov/13
Id say 5'9 and he wears lifts just look at all the photos of him and Olga Kurylenko and shes 5'8
dave says on 8/Nov/13
He is 5ft 8 or 9, no more.
Van says on 5/Nov/13
5'8 is ridiculous for Craig. He's closer to 6' than 5'8. I'm 5'8 and I look like a midget compared to him. I think he is a very strong 5'10 and has an amazing posture.
PJ says on 3/Nov/13
MD ... exactly right. Daniel is a notorious lift wearer, which many here tend to overlook and not take into consideration.
The Exorcist says on 23/Oct/13
Not sure if the ground is even or not on this one, but he does look about an inch shorter than 5'10" listed P Diddy here.
Click Here
MD says on 21/Oct/13
Until someone can explain to me his appearance on SNL where he appeared nearly as short as Keenan Thompson with both of them in identical footwear, there is no way he's taller than this, and it's far, far more likely he's shorter than listed.
Mr. R says on 19/Oct/13
DC is 5-9.5 at his tallest point of the day.
Jacko says on 19/Oct/13
He is 182 cms he was same height of harrison ford 182 cms and rob also mentioned harri as182 cm in this website only
Yves says on 17/Oct/13
Daniel is between 5'10 to 5'11 range, if he was under or 5'8, let's say he would be the next Bond in Bond 24, The main height of James Bond suppose to be more than 6'0, maybe producers picked Daniel because he's looks talented or beautiful?, I would pick British Actors more than 6'0 if I would direct any Bond films.
Steve McKeen says on 13/Oct/13
Mr Craig is clearly in the 5ft 10" range and in a decent pair of shoes he is easily 5ft 11" or above. He looks just under 6ft as bond (especially in SKYFALL thanks to the fit of his suits and some great cinematography).
I am just over 5ft 10" and although above average height in the UK I do feel a little shot next to guy's 6ft and up..... but equally there are plenty of men shorter than myself who could not care less how tall they are (and whom I respect greatly for such self assurance). It's pretty cool that that a blonde guy under 6ft can finally play 007 (and arguably do it the best) and if he ever looks 5ft 8" as some have been claiming; it is either because his brawn makes him hunch a little when he relaxes in paps shots or because jealous trolls who are insecure about their own height (or lack there of) want to make Daniel seem small..... though at 45 years old I don't see how being 2 inches shorter would make much difference to such an ultra successful, sexy, talented and badass star both personally or professionally. FYI he may be an actor and not a real trained killer agent but I gotta say he probably one of the toughest men in hollywood and is a guy who could wipe the floor with all past bonds and most men on the street regardless of their height. nuff said.
5\'11 barefooot says on 11/Oct/13
He's 5'10 with regular shoes with lifts 6 foot...it's cool he never looks tall just buff its cool..
lelman says on 7/Oct/13
Strong 5'10", can look shorter due to his strong build but definitely not under 5'10".
Matt says on 7/Sep/13
He is a solid 5'10" guy. Maaaaaybe a shade under OR a shade over, but 5'10" seems absolutely fair. 5'8" is just plain ridiculous. At 5'8" he would be beaten by most (which he isn't) unless he looked awkward wearing elevator shoes (which he doesn't). Nobody can look at Craig and say "there's a shorter fellow", but nor would they say he's tall. Average! Smack, bang average.

I say this as a 5'10" individual myself. I am totally inconspicuous. Sometimes I stand next to guys who are 6'4" in a line at the shops and I feel like a dwarf. Sometimes I come across women 5'7"+ who wear heels and again, I feel small. But the vast majority of the time I am getting an equal experience: some are taller, some are smaller, most men more-or-less reach eye level. I wish I was taller, but I don't ever feel like I'm on the smaller side.

It seems that 5'10" really is the war zone of heights. But look, if he was close to 5'11" then he would be able to pull off looking tall (like Brad Pitt); some may even be arguing for six feet. If he were closer to 5'9" (or 5'8" as some claim), then we'd see an awful lot more photos of him being dwarfed and there would be zero discussion about 5'10". Start the height scale with the Dustin Hoffmans of this world, progress to the Tom Cruises and we're still on the noticeably small side, then we start getting to the Craigs and Matt Damons, before hitting the taller categories of Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt. If Craig ain't in that 5'10" zone, I'm not sure what 5'10" is supposed to look like!
Lurk says on 5/Sep/13
5ft 8 is ridiculous. He's clearly taller than that - just look at him next to Harrison Ford!
Mclovin85 says on 3/Sep/13
Pffft 5ft 11 my ass !! Hes 5ft 8 if hes lucky. Gemma Arterton is 5ft 6 and shes taller than him with heels on, and reportedly said he had to wear built up shoes in a few scenes on Quantum of Solace lol. Height aside tho he put on an impressive amount of mass on for that roll kudos !
Sain\\\\\\\'t says on 24/Aug/13
Daniel Craig has an amazing build. I would lose three inches to have his body haha. I do beleive he is a legit 5'10" and he actually resembles my Dad a bit who is the same height.
Chiselhead says on 21/Aug/13
He's got to be 5'8". He was eye to eye with Graham Norton when they shook hands on the Graham Norton show.
Lurk says on 21/Aug/13
@Will
If Craig is that short, then how tall would you say Harrison Ford is? He looks just marginally taller than Craig.
Will says on 19/Aug/13
Daniel Craig is about 5ft 9in. Him being 5'11" is a joke.
MaskDeMasque says on 12/Aug/13
If he isn't 5'10, he's not far from it. 176-178cm range. Nothing under or above that.
Yeah says on 1/Aug/13
@Iceman, yeah looks like it. Not sure how I'd estimate his shoes though, anywhere from 2 to 4-5 cms?
Zijuun says on 31/Jul/13
I'd say 5'10 spot on, maybe a little shorter? I would leave out the ".25" though Rob.
Iceman says on 30/Jul/13
@ Yeah

Those pictures are fine. Daniel Craig is about 5'11"(180cm) in the picture with shoes on and Rachel is 5'6" plus 2.5 inch heals which would put her at 5'8.5"(174cm). Your overestimating how much height women get from high heals. Getting 10cm from a shoe would be a huge pair of heels. Lots of heels probably only give 5-7cm.
Yeah says on 29/Jul/13
Click Here
So in this picture, she has as you said, about 6cm shoe advantage. But in the picture, the difference looks way over an inch, at least 2 (she's about 1-2 inch above his eyebrows, so that leaves atleast 2ish inches height difference, correct me if I'm wrong). Wouldn't that make Daniel 179+?
I met him once close to 3 months ago, I'm about touching 180 in the morning, go down to just below 179 I think (I'm wondering would that make me on 25th height percentile in US or West Eur?). I'm not quite sure about my eye level or posture, but I think he did look noticeably shorter, so I would give him 177 max, that's why i'm confused about the picture.
On the other hand though, I can't tell height when I'm talking face to face with someone so he could've even been taller than me.
TWINGO says on 28/Jul/13
For sure, the best Bond of all times, not only because of the change on the producers focus on the character, but mainly because of the correct choice on Craig. Shorter than others, but tough, bully, muscled and, at the same time, charming, when it is needed. For sure he is in 178 cm range. Congratulations for the excelent site, Rob.
little sue says on 27/Jul/13
You would probably get about 2.5 inches of height out of her shoes which are probably about 3 and 3/4 heels
Yeah says on 26/Jul/13
Click Here
What can you say about this Rob? If Rachel is 168, plus about 10cm (?) heels, and there's around another 7cm height difference, and that'd make Dan 185. Now there's 3 possibilities, either I'm dead wrong on my 10 + 7 estimate, but probably not as wrong as 185-178=7cm. Or Rachel is considerably shorter than you listed her, or Daniel's taller, which I don't really think.
[Editor Rob: I don't think she's got more than a 2.5 inch footwear advantage, might be between 2-2.5 advantage. In photos when she does have near 3 inch advantage she can look between 1-1.5 inch smaller]

@ Realist
I dont see any bending here bro...
She is 171-172 they are barefoot so i think he is litle under 178:)

I think Craig seems 177 - 178 cm range.

Connor 184cm says on 8/Jul/13
@teej hes not short, just average height short would be 5ft 4-6 range. 5ft 10 is average
Realist says on 6/Jul/13
He was never ever listed at 5'7 that's a joke.
teej says on 2/Jul/13
Lol he was listed as 5'7 before he was james bond, now hes 5'10. He's short, but theres nothing wrong with that. I dont blame him for not stating his height. He has a lot of expectancies he has to play 'james bond' and all of the previous james bonds have been fairly tall, i think he's the shortest one yet. But who cares i think he's the best bond yet! And a brilliant actor!
Realist says on 21/Jun/13
Lol he was bending down to kiss her hes 5'10.
refresh says on 18/Jun/13
in skyfall scene in the shower (probably barefoot i dont think he was in shoes:)) with Berenice Marlohe (5'8 at this site but i think 171-172cm) He is not taller from her more then 2-3 cm... 175-176?
Mooplefoo says on 10/Jun/13
I think he's more like 5'9 1/2, he's one of those thin guys who can look shorter or taller on screen. He definitly wears lifts, in james bond I'd say he looks closer to 5'10 but in tomb raider he looks closer to 5'9, he wasn't much taller then Angelina Jolie.
little sue says on 9/Jun/13
You must have seen his 'shorter double' then FAB as he is at his home in NY and has been spotted almost everyday round the area for the last few weeks.
cole says on 9/Jun/13
Claims that he is shorter than listed is far off the mark, saying he is 5'8 or 5'9 is just crazy. He would be closer to 179 cm than 177 cm, no shorter than listed for sure. Adding .25" to this listing could be easily justfied. Are you considering the option that Daniel could be 5'10.5, Rob? I certainly am.
Fab says on 8/Jun/13
Saw him a couple of days ago in London, about as tall as I am, 5'8.
K says on 7/Jun/13
Well he looks 5'10" and some to me....maybe when people see him in public he doesn't want to be noticed and hunches over, making him appear shorter...you have to take in account people don't stand up as straight as they can at all times.
Tempest says on 6/Jun/13
Come on Rob... This listing is ridiculous. No way Craig is this tall if he looks this close to Sean Penn's listed height: Click Here

Sean Penn has a majorly relaxed posture there too. Let's not forget that Craig usually wears lifts. What guy under 6' playing James Bond wouldn't wear lifts? He does - most assuredly.
teej says on 4/Jun/13
I dont think hes 5'10 he looks kinda short to me, id say 5'8.5
Terry says on 26/May/13
5'10? lol his torso is tiny and his legs therefore there is no way he is 5'10. He looks personally, about 5'8, possibly a weak 5'9. Just look at the scene when he comes out of the water in james bond(famous one in his speedos) 5'10 is laughable.
jamz says on 8/May/13
Wookieboy: Ford's height has declined over the years, especially when he sustained a back injury in the 2nd Indiana Jones film. That combined with old age makes Ford around 5'10/11" these days.
lawrence says on 26/Apr/13
i think he should be 177cm at best
PJ says on 21/Apr/13
Focus on his footwear, especially when he's dressed in a suit, he's a notorious lift wearer. 5'9
Sanch says on 14/Apr/13
A guy I know was his bodyguard on broadway. Described him as really tiny maybe 5'8
Patrick says on 2/Apr/13
Daniel Craig is no taller than 5"10. If you are ever in Las Vegas, go to madame Toussaus wax museum. they have a wax copy of him to scale
Wookiee boy says on 1/Apr/13
Just search Harrison ford (6'1) and Daniel Craig (5'10) and it looks as though they are the same in pictures together. Now either Harrison ford has shrunk or Daniel Craig is taller
[Editor Rob: ford has damaged spine and lost cartilage, he's definitely lost height in last 20 years.]
Rich says on 15/Mar/13
In Skyfall he's not quite as big and bulky as he was in Casino and tends to give a good 5ft10 impression, which I think is what he is. I think any claims of 5ft11 and even 6ft are just silly. As for him being shorter than this listing, In the Bonds he has a broad muscular build yet that doesn't 'shorten' him, even with the muscle he still appears to be fairly solid heighted guy which, in my opinion, makes 5ft9 a little too short for him.
Anonymous says on 2/Mar/13
It´s impossible for all the people who "pretend" to have seen Craig "in the Supermarket, the Cinema, etc.)to "be right" about his height, because from 5´8" to 5´10,5", EVERYONE IS RIGHT. Maybe, some of us is right, and maybe those "1 up to 2", are lifts.
JB says on 24/Feb/13
I'd saw 5'10 1/2. I saw him in a supermarket in New Mexico a couple times while Cowboys & Aliens was being filmed. I'm 5'10", and he was slightly taller than me in what looked like regular sneakers.
Joe Pineapples says on 22/Feb/13
Did anyone else see his Brioni tux from Casino Royale featured in the Hollywood Costumes exhibition at the V&A in London recently? I'm 6' 2" and it looked small. I think he's around 5' 8" - 5' 9" and I now refer to him as 'Tiny Daniel Craig'.
Arch Stanton says on 20/Feb/13
5'10 range yes, but I don't think he really cares too much about it. If you bagged Rachel Weisz as your wife and were playing James Bond you'd feel 10 feet tall!!
SAK says on 12/Feb/13
I believe he is 5f10. But he looks like a short 5f10; because of stocky build and stumpy legs.
Willy says on 11/Feb/13
Mathew, you'll actually see him at least half an inch shorter than this listing when Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) and James Bond (Craig) shake hands in Casino Royale.
Silent d says on 11/Feb/13
5 foot 10.
Mathew says on 9/Feb/13
I could see him being at least half an inch shorter than this listing.
Original says on 7/Feb/13
He's 5'10.
Willy says on 31/Jan/13
Mads Mikkelsen had a good two inches on him in Casino Royale. The pictures with Rob show Mikkelsen at 5'11.5'', and this once again proves that Craig needs to be downgraded.

Not surprising with the amount of shoe-lifting he does, his height is all over the place.
I still it's a strong possibility that his 5'8.5 barefoot. With his normal shoe lifts he easily looks 10.5. (Both on screen and at special occasions)
For me the ultimate picture was him next to Hugh Jackman!!
tom hagen says on 24/Jan/13
I think he is 5ft ten..in madaum toussead his wax figure is almost 6ft tall, i stood next to it! and brad pitt was 6ft 1
Silent d says on 22/Jan/13
It was clearly converse. It didn't look like it had lifts. I thought jude law would be taller than daniel craig but that photo is mind blowing. He never looked shorter than 178cm. Sienna miller is 168cm so craig looked pretty tall in layer cake when he was naked with her.
Connor 183cm says on 20/Jan/13
Whoops rob i think i accidently posted a comment with no writing i didnt mean to do that anyway do you believe he is 5ft 9.5 or do you think 5ft 10 is still a good shout for him?
[Editor Rob: I still think he can look 5ft 10 more than he can look 5ft 9]
refresh says on 18/Jan/13
in skyfall scene in the shower (probably barefoot:)) with Berenice Marlohe (5'8 at this site) He is not taller from her more then 2-3 cm... 176-177?
Realist says on 18/Jan/13
Lol Bon Jovis chin n forehead are at least 2 inches below Mr Craigs, its only his bouffant hair that makes them look a similair size.
6\'0, 17 says on 17/Jan/13
178 cm sounds perfect for him. He's the exact same height as my dad. Same build, proportions. Very good height for a man.
NBK says on 15/Jan/13
Actually I take that back, was looking at shots online. Chance would have it the movie just came on and he looks about the same height as the vehicle.. maybe even a little shorter?
NBK says on 15/Jan/13
In Casino Royale he appears taller than the height of the Range Rover Sport, which is listed at 5 foot 11.5 inches tall. That would make him well over six foot (on screen in the movie)?
GC says on 10/Jan/13
So hammer we dont Know what he was wearing inside those boots! would you say 5'7 barefoot or 5'8?
Rick says on 10/Jan/13
I was just watching SNL clips of him, standing next to other cast members in a construction worker sketch. He is between 5'9 1/2 to 5'10 not short but not tall.
hammer says on 10/Jan/13
I was on Virgin Airline flight from LA to NY sitting two row behind him He was wearing a ridiculous Rastafarian wool knit hat with boots with 2 inch heals. I am 5' 10" and he appeared to be shorter than me by 1-2 inches.
GC says on 9/Jan/13
Anybody can see Casino Royale when he appears with listed 5'6 Eva Green almost at the end of the movie exactly after the rain, around 2:00:00, before they go into the bed. you check and make your conclusions! 5'10 Jajajajaja
little sue says on 9/Jan/13
There is a pic on the web from an award ceromony the other night and he is photographed next to Bradley Cooper, he looks about 1.5 to 2 inches shorter than Bradley.
Willy says on 8/Jan/13
Seems like Craig's publicists have overrun the page. Daniel looks a visible inch shorter than Ralph Fiennes, who may or may not be 5'11'', in Skyfall. Additionally, he looks two inches shorter than Javier Bardem, who may or may not be 5'11.5'', in the film. On top of that, his footwear looks extremely suspicious. Take a look at it when Bond approaches Patrice at the upper floor of the Shanghai skyscraper.
SamT says on 7/Jan/13
Not a hair under 5'11, always looked a bit above average and close to 6' in Skyfall.
Mal says on 31/Dec/12
Looked the same height as fiennes is skyfall. Maybe 1/4 shorter at the most.
Chriccha says on 23/Dec/12
I met him at the airport in Stockholm and asked for an autograph. (Got it!) No media people around, just him, departuring alone, in ordinary clothes - not a time for lift shoes...
He seemed 178cm to me. I usually find people who are LESS than 178cm "short", and he did NOT fall into that category! 178cm, not shorter.
Tom says on 22/Dec/12
Too short for Bond!!!!!!!!!!!! Bond needs to be at least 185cm tall!!!

Louis says on 17/Dec/12
174-175 and taller than Jude Law
little sue says on 16/Dec/12
There is no way he is as low as 5ft 8, I have pics of him in those flat toe past sandals standing next to Rachel Weitz and he has about 4 to 5 inches on her, I'd post the pics if I knew how!
romanspqr says on 15/Dec/12
There's this photo floating around here that has Jude law and Craig. And I'm reading Craig is in converse. How does anyone know that? No where is there a converse emblem visible. They easily could be converse look-alike with 3in lifts. The only thing that pic proves is that Craig never takes off his lifts. Daniel Craig is 5'8. Also FYI elevator shoes are designed to be inconspicuous.
Louis says on 14/Dec/12
he wasn't so much taller than downey
i doubt downey had footwear advantage
Silent D says on 13/Dec/12
Louis your photo is a real eye opener because jude law has hi tops on which has a thicker sole than craig's converse shoes. Was that sienna miller? His ex wife? How old was that photo. I can't believe how short jude law is. It blows my mind. I am truly shocked. Craig might be 5 foot 10. I will be surprised is shorter than 5 foot 9. That will really be shocking. He was so much taller than robert downey jr and sienna miller.

Rob, I hope the bond franchise is paying you well for this one! No way is 007 5'10.25. I can see a strong 5'8. He is a lift wearer so albeit it can be hard to judge his true height. But he has footage with known 5'8 guys and stands shoulder to shoulder.with them. We all like Daniel but no need to exaggerate his height.
little sue says on 9/Dec/12
Never a truer word spoken AndyDamnit!! and us ladies would still love him 5ft 6 or 7ft!!!
AndyDamnit says on 9/Dec/12
Does it really matter if Craig is 5'6" or 7' tall.... on the big screen he is 60 feet tall and plays the part of 007 perfectly.It's a movie... he's an actor. Does anything else matter?
addy says on 8/Dec/12
Rob, here he is with Graham Norton (listed as 174cm) and they're almost the exact same height.

daniel ,you looks good in bond but little old looking.why bond's are get opportunity in late age.my height is 5.6" .can i get a chance to attend bond serial for a small role .lol...just fun ... May "allah" bless you& your family all the time..
Willy says on 30/Nov/12
Daniel, I don't know what the rudeness you show by calling posters who dare to disagree with you "silly" has got to do with "showing respect to Rob and the people that come to this site". If anything, it shows your disrespect. Am I allowed to suggest that you better use a female name when posting online with all your passive-aggressive behavior? Back to topic.
Craig was listed as 5'11'' by his agency even before he was in consideration for the Bond role. Nevertheless, I assume that they'd list him as 6' if he'd be a legit 5'11'' guy.
Daniel says on 29/Nov/12
I won't reply in your silly terms, Willy, as a way of showing respect to Rob and the people that come to this site. Anyway, I guess Craig is about 1.80m (not less than 1.78m nor more than 1.82m).
Willy says on 29/Nov/12
Yes, sir, we are looking at the same picture, and without his slouch, Jude would come close to Daniel, and mid-stride pictures are particularly unreliable when the persons in question are close in height. I will admit though that Law's height is a mystery to me, but I definitely don't buy him at Rob's listing of 5'11'', and I even doubt 5'10''. So, if I'd had to make a rough guess, I'd say 5'9.25''. Now, instead of only bitching, why don't you just give us your estimates on Bond and Watson?
Daniel says on 28/Nov/12
Willy says on 24/Nov/12
"Louis' photo doesn't reveal that much. It's in mid-stride, Jude is slouching, and Daniel seems to have a slight angle advantage. Nevertheless, it's not impossible that Law is 5'9'' flat, and that Craig is only a fraction taller."

"slight angle advantage"? "only a fraction taller"? Come on, are you looking at the same picture as I?

"not impossible that Law is 5'9'' flat"? Whaaaaaat?

My God, it's unbelievable what some people can say (or write) just to stick on their opinions.
Realist says on 24/Nov/12
Just watched Skyfall brilliant bond movie by the way!, and craig in normal shoes looks similair height to both Javier Bardem and Ralph Fienes.
Willy says on 24/Nov/12
Louis' photo doesn't reveal that much. It's in mid-stride, Jude is slouching, and Daniel seems to have a slight angle advantage. Nevertheless, it's not impossible that Law is 5'9'' flat, and that Craig is only a fraction taller.
MrX says on 24/Nov/12
I think he is 178 cm and with classic shoes with solid heel (3 cm but not elevator) can appear 181 cm.
Daniel says on 23/Nov/12
That photo posted by Louis on 16/Nov/12 is revealing. Craig is obviously taller (altohugh noy by much) than Jude Law. The question is how tall Law really is.
Sbu says on 22/Nov/12
Just watched Skyfall and I would say that he is in the 5'9-9.5" range. No less than 5'9" but 5'10.25" seems a bit high.
Still, he is a good Bond and the new film is great so it doesn't really matter if he is less than listed.
Josh says on 16/Nov/12
177cm I think
Willy says on 16/Nov/12
If I remember correctly, the 6' listing for James Bond is based on not really trustworthy SMERSH records and therefore not entirely mandatory. However, one should note that Ian Fleming himself was reportedly 6'. But back to Mr. Craig.
Based on how Daniel measured up to Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem - who I believe are 5'10.75'' and 5'11.25'', respectively - in Skyfall, I'd say that he is 5'9.5''. Nevertheless, his ankle seemed to be comparatively high in his footwear throughout the entire film, and so it's quite possible that he was lifting in the film and is in reality 5'9'' flat.
Louis says on 16/Nov/12
leonari says on 15/Nov/12
Louis: Taller than Jude Law... What are you smoking? I want some!

LOL
Click Here you can't judge by photos of them on red carpet, jude is lift wearer, michael caine called jude short, and never looks much taller than him on photos,so it's obvious

on this photo jude has little bit footwear advantage, no chance any of them wearing lifts
MaskDeMasque says on 15/Nov/12
@Brad

Why does bond need to be 6 foot? I think Fleming had bond listed as 5'11 in the books.
leonari says on 15/Nov/12
Louis: Taller than Jude Law... What are you smoking? I want some!
leonari says on 15/Nov/12
Yeah very strong 5'9". he is great Bond and even tough much shorter than all the other Bonds he is the toughest. Hell I bet all Bonds in their prime in a fight Craig would take them appart. He is proof that Bond does NOT need to be 6 feet. He looks fantastic in most scenes in Skyfall.
little sue says on 15/Nov/12
If Bond 'needs to be 6ft' then would all the Bonds before Craig wrong being as they were 6ft 1+. It would be hard to get an actor with the spot on height of the fictional character, 2 or 3 inches either way would'nt really matter!
Sam says on 15/Nov/12
Rob, would you consider a downgrade in light of the photos with Kenan Thompson?
[Editor Rob: he can look in 5ft 9 range, whether he truly is i'm not as sure on]
Brad says on 14/Nov/12
Strong 5' 9", he looks it without the up shots all through Skyfall. Bond needs to be 6 foot.
Louis says on 14/Nov/12
Kenan is more likey 171-172 so Craig 173-175 good height
almost full head taller than Sienna Miller, taller than Jude Law
rao says on 14/Nov/12
Its sure.. He's not more than 5'8
BRUTAL says on 13/Nov/12
I'd wager he's 5ft 9... perfectly normal height for a fellow. 5ft 10 wouldn't surprise me, I don't buy anything less than 5ft 9 though. he's clearly an inch or so taller than Kenan.
Charlie says on 13/Nov/12
Come on for god sake, that photo with Kenan he is hunching and dosent even stand straight! He is 178 for sure!
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 12/Nov/12
Those pictures of Craig standing next to Kenan Thompson really expose his height. I would estimate Craig at 5'9" MAX.
Sam says on 12/Nov/12
A weird guy, heightwise. In some photos he really can pass for 5'11" but at other times 5'9" can seem generous for him. It seems unlikely that the same guy can look close to the same height as both Harrison Ford and Kenan Thompson, but he pulled it off. I think his good posture and footwear obviously help sometimes.
MaskDeMasque says on 12/Nov/12
After seeing that kenan pic and looking up other pictures, i take back what i said. He could very well be 5'9. Look at this- Click Here

Is that the body of a 5'10 guy? I dont think so...
MaskDeMasque says on 11/Nov/12
@Ana Madrid

i can guarantee he's taller than 6" :P.
Josh says on 11/Nov/12
After seeing the SNL pictures with Kenan Thompson (they're wearing the same footwear), he is 5'9" max. A regular lift wearer.
Ana Madrid says on 10/Nov/12
Daniel Craig could be a short as a hobbit and no woman would care, he has that look that just plays well with us women, not a baby face pretty boy but a manly look and demeanor not to mention those sky blue eyes, as a tall woman myself I can tell you he is the only man that I don't care if he is not 6" or taller.
Lebensdorf says on 10/Nov/12
I saw him on Saturday Night Live as well and I was surprised that he didn't appear much taller than Kenan Thompson. I think Kenan was surprised too. In a later scene he was clearly a lot taller. I think he is a regular lift wearer. I saw Skyfall and I can tell he was wearing elevator shoes. You can tell when the guy's feet are arched a bit in the shoes. It is very subtle but you can tell, especially when his legs look so much longer. I would say 5'9, no more.
little sue says on 9/Nov/12
Well is wife can't be any shorter than 5ft 6 and he is still clearly taller than her when she is in 4.5 inch heels.
Daniel says on 9/Nov/12
Rob, I wish you would met Craig to tell us how tall he really is
Copnovelist195 says on 9/Nov/12
The general talk at the time Casino Royale was released was that he was possibly 5ft8. He says 6ft, but I've seen Terence Stamp who claimed to be 6ft and he's really 5ft8. Actors and sportman of this height usually round their height up to six feet (to the nearest foot) which is both disingenuous and not mathematically wrong at the same time. It is undisputed that he is the shortest man ever to play James Bond, and my impression is that he 5ft8.
Mightyman says on 8/Nov/12
I'm only 5'8 so trust me I can judge another mans height next to me easy. Being on movie sets a lot, so could you, I can tell u it is so damn easy to make a shorter guy look tall on camera, hell I can look 6ft on camera using angles and perspectives. Its really quite easy. Give me some boots with some lifts stuffed inside and I can add easily 2.5-3 inches in height without even struggling. that would put me in the 5.10 to 5.11 range. Add to that good build and combed up hair, the illusion even in person is very easy to pull off. My friend is a soild 5'7. He uses 1.75 lifts in his shoes and everyone swears he 5'10 when he is still slightly below 5'9. But guess what he does look it cause he's slim and well built.
Mightyman says on 8/Nov/12
People doesnt the picture posted below with Kennan Prove that he cant be taller than 5'8-5'8.5? Look at the picture. Craig definitely aint taller than Kennan. Lets Say Kennan has lifts, that still puts Craig in the5'8 range. He suits the role thats all that matters. AND I believe he really could kick some ass in real life.
Louis says on 8/Nov/12
Skyfallboy says on 8/Nov/12
Shorter than Ralph Fiennes in "Skyfall", by around 2-3 cm.

he was wearing lifts in Bond

jamieorr4, everyone is different. No one has the same exact face length, legs, torso, etc. People are so.... omfg haha.
leonari says on 7/Nov/12
Anything below a strong 5'10 is a joke. Those cats saying 174 cm just disqualified themselves. Pathetic.
Louis says on 7/Nov/12
Rob, did you see kenan thompson with iverson?
And craig looked same height as kenan on SNL
what do you think?
Mightyman says on 5/Nov/12
Seen him on set a few times 5ft 8.5 inches seems quite reasonable for him barefoot. Its not that short and in lifts he looks tall, added to that his slim frame he looks quite good. Even without lifts he looks tall. Cmon guys 5ft8.5 is not short! A friend of mine met Harrison Ford in a elevator, she 5'9 flat shoes, and said he was the same as her in dress shoes. 5'8- 5'9 is ideal in Hollywood cause you aint short, and can be made to look tall depending on build and if needed foot wear. Seen and met lots of actors. Its funny the ones you think are short are alot taller than you expect. The ones you think are tall are shorter. Except The Rock he's frickin huge.

More likely 6 ft than 5 ft 8 LOL.
jtm says on 1/Nov/12
bakura:i don't believe fiennes is 5'11 but i do agree that 5'8 is too low for craig.
Bakura says on 31/Oct/12
5'8" is utterly hilarious. After seeing Skyfall there is no way he can be anything under 5'10. Ralph Fiennes had at the very most an inch on him.
jamieorr4 says on 31/Oct/12
little sue im 510.5 i know ive got a bigger body longer legs than him ive even got a bigger head so even 59 seens a bit bad
little sue says on 31/Oct/12
5ft 8.5 is laughable, not under 5ft 10, he looks a good 9 or 10 inches taller than Judy Dench in their scenes, she is probably about 5ft 1 in shoes now. (by the way, my comments page has'nt changed since 23rd October is this the same for everyone)?
MaskDeMasque says on 31/Oct/12
Looking at photos of him, his proportions don't seem 5'9 to me. 5'8.5 just seems silly tbh. The absolute lowest i can see for him is 177cm.
Silent d says on 31/Oct/12
MaskDeMasque people are saying he's 5 foot 8.5 on this page so 176cm isn't unreasonable.
jamieorr4 says on 30/Oct/12
i think Craig is 58 or 59 im 510.5 and i think i have longer legs and body than him
ano says on 29/Oct/12
He's 5'8.5! And looks to wear 2 inch lifts to boost him to at least 5'10.5!
Honestly he's a short guy, especially for playing Bond!!
thc-182 says on 29/Oct/12
in skyfall he looks 177-178 cm next to Bérénice Marlohe(the james bond girl) who is 175 cm, in the shower cubicle they are really closer.
As for javier bardem he is more 180 than 181, does not look a strong 5'11" next to daniel .
173-175 is impossible for daniel craig
Moo says on 29/Oct/12
He does not look 5-10" to me. Maybe more like 5'8" and hitting a weak 5'10 with both shoe lifts and altered heels. Just my .02.
Shaun says on 28/Oct/12
Frankie says on 25/Oct/12
Was right next to him on set of Skyfall - he has a compact and quite small frame that how he looks so good and 'neat' in suits

He looks so good in suits because of his physique and lean muscular build, I know what you mean though. I consider him an ugly guy, but he does look very good in a suit and has an impressive build and I can see what the ladies see in him.
newbie says on 27/Oct/12
Was on with Graham Norton last night, they looked to be wearing similar foot ware and he didn't look any taller than Norton who is listed as 5'8.5 on here. 5'9 would seem more realistic.
Dude says on 27/Oct/12
wow then this must be murder-heels:

Shaun says on 27/Oct/12
5'9.5-5'10.5 would be reasonable barefoot.
Shaun says on 27/Oct/12
Rob, you ought to have a page for Sam Mendes. Do you think weak 5'8" is a good estimate for him? His high forehead gives the illusion of a taller man but see him next to Craig!!
[Editor Rob: I don't think he'd be lower than 5ft 8, it wouldn't shock me if craig on some occassions did put a 1cm lift in shoes just to 'solidify' his own 5ft 10 height.]
Shaun says on 27/Oct/12
Bardez looks 6 ft. I think this is spot on, bit taller than Prince Charles. Sam Mendes is listed at 5 ft 10!! 5'7.5"-5'8" is nearer...
MaskDeMasque says on 26/Oct/12
@Silent D

not 176cm. I don't see how anyone could see him as under 5'10. Looked 5'10 on Graham Norton Tonight.
Antoine says on 26/Oct/12
I saw a photo today with Steven Gerrard...Steven is 6'0. As Jed said he is more than two inches shorter, I'd say more like three inches shorter that him!!! WTF? 5'10? More like 5'8-5'9!
booker says on 26/Oct/12
He has a slavic germanic look - if he was nordic (tallest/strongest genes/world) with that built. He'd be at least 182 (6.0f), but as he plays against non Nordic actors I guess he can get away with being even shoryer.
Silent D says on 26/Oct/12
176cm.
Jed says on 25/Oct/12
He's more than 2 inches shorter than Steven Gerrard.
Stiffelio says on 24/Oct/12
On the red carpet Craig looked only marginally taller than Prince Charles. Also on the picture posted by Vibram he's about 1 1/2 in shorter than Bardem. So 5 ft 10 in seems to be right on the mark.
jtm says on 24/Oct/12
he had a footwear advantage and he was still a hair shorter than ralph fiennes who i think is 5'10 and not 5'11 that many believe so i am now convince that he is 5'9 flat and not 5'9.5 or 5'10 that i thought he was.
little sue says on 24/Oct/12
No way is Craig under 5ft 10, look at him on the Red Carpet at last night's Skyfall Premier. Standing next to Naomi Harris in her 5 inch heels she is still shorter than him and she is listed as 5ft 7 on this site.
Shaun says on 23/Oct/12
Rob do you think Bardem is wearing customs in those pictures with Craig, those shoes look a bit sus don't they?
[Editor Rob: I don't think they appear much bigger, maybe the heel is a few mm thicker than normal. ]
Shaun says on 23/Oct/12
Vibram says on 18/Oct/12
Looks about 2.5 inches below 6ft Bardem. I think 5ft9.5 (176cm) is right for Craig. Click Here

Have you seen Bardem's footwear?
Shaun says on 23/Oct/12
I think 5'10.5" is near what he is, upper edge of average range.This is about right.
Louis says on 22/Oct/12
Silent d

there is good evidence he is no more than 5'8
Silent d says on 22/Oct/12
Vibram bardem is 179cm. Probably lifts. Is everyone saying he is 5 foot 8 and wears lifts? I don't buy that. Maybe he is 176cm but downgrading him by 5 cm is a lot.
Louis says on 19/Oct/12
To know his height you just need to look at photo of kenan thompson with 178 iverson and then look at photo of kenan and daniel
No way 178
172 is my guess
Vibram says on 18/Oct/12
Looks about 2.5 inches below 6ft Bardem. I think 5ft9.5 (176cm) is right for Craig. Click Here
Ka says on 14/Oct/12
Vibram says on 14/Oct/12
5ft9.25 / 176cm

Craig is as listed. I hope the poster above is not the "176 cm height complex man" from a few years ago...
Vibram says on 14/Oct/12
5ft9.25 / 176cm
little sue says on 8/Oct/12
On SNL he stood with Muse and he had a good 3 inches on Matt Bellamy. If he is only 5ft 8 it would put his wife at about 5ft 3 when she is clearly not, she is quite tall!!
WhyDoICare says on 8/Oct/12
I was surprised by his height on SNL. Not that it matters, he's still a stud, but I don't even think he's 5'9.
me says on 7/Oct/12
Also saw him last night on SNL. At the end of the show, he was standing next to and is the same height at Keenan Thompson, which makes him ONLY 5'8. He is really short.
