Comment on the Height of David Boreanaz
said on 18/Mar/16
You're wrong, Alex. 6ft on the dot is 182.88cm. 6ft0ž is 183.515cm, so it's closer to 184cm by a fraction of a millimetre.
Editor Rob: I did watch an episode recently of Bones, one with his brother Fehr and really bearing in mind hairstyles, I think they are quite close in height if measured.
said on 12/Mar/16
Hey Rob you should fix this. 6'0.25 is 182.8 cm. 183 cm is good for Boreanaz.
Editor Rob: there's nothing really wrong with conversions. It's the nearest full cm to the feet/inch that gets displayed.
Chad said on 9/Mar/16
Looks easily over 6 foot. 6'0.5 to 6'0.75 would be fair for him . He needs a upgrade rob.

David Duchovnny was a solid 6'0 , Boreanaz slightly taller than David Duchovnny by 0.25-0.4
Judd ISR said on 16/Jun/15
that's a true 6'0.25" guy who can easily struggle with 6'0.5"
Hypado said on 21/Feb/15
After watching Bones, my conclusion is:
David Boreanaz is a strong 183 cm (6ft 0in) and a weak 184 cm (6ft 0.5in)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/14
I'd really go with the 184-185cm for Denisof...
said on 6/Jul/14
I know he's a bit closer to the camera, but he still looks like he'd edge out David Duchovnny. IMO 6'0.5 is an ideal listing.
cole said on 7/Apr/14
Edit: That's of course John Francis Daley, not James, sorry about that :P
By the way, Rob, would you consider a page for him?
cole said on 4/Apr/14
He looked more or less the same height as 6'0.25 Reed Diamond and 6'0 James Francis Daley on Bones, so he's very likely to be at least a 183 cm flat guy, and it's not impossible that he's the listed height either, as I can see him being on the top end of 183,5 cm when standing tall. It's mostly because of his posture that he can look a bit shorter than Denisof, but I wouldn't bet on it being more than 0.5in between them if measured.
Freddy said on 16/Feb/14
6'1.5 Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who appeared in one of angels episodes, had a good 1,5 inches on david.....6ft for david is a safe bet
barnman&robin said on 3/Feb/14
he is pretty much the prime example of a legit 6ft (183cm) man ....182cm is too low and 184cm too much imo
Lorne said on 17/Jan/14
Nah, 6ft0.25 for Denisot is too low, I mean he could measure shy of 184 for sure, but even so, add a few mm of expected loss, and you got a 184 guy. The current listings are fine, the real question is whether David is 6ft flat or not...
cole said on 16/Jan/14
I think the 0.25in difference is fair, could be 0.5in but I wouldn't say a full inch. Maybe the 6ft 0.25in should go to Denisof and 6ft even for Boreanaz?
Lorne said on 16/Jan/14
I too saw some off set pics(and recent) and indeed, they look very similar, in fact David can even look taller in one photo! But Alex is definently taller, but as Rob say's, how much? I think 1cm between them, with better posture Denisof pulled off looking 2-3cm taller, depending on footwear. But how the hell did Alex pull off looking no more than 2 inches under J August Richards??? Hmm...
said on 11/Jan/14
Rob could Boreanaz and Denisof be the same height?
I haven't seen 'Angel', but in some off-set pics I thought they could have been similar had David straightened up his posture. Denisof did look about the same height as that guy who is "almost 6ft in person" (the picture you linked in a comment over at Denisof's page recently). Denisof couldn't possibly measure near 6'1 - but could well be 183 cm range after seeing him next to you and that other guy.
[Editor Rob: david isn't the best posture wise, but I think denisof is a bit taller, how much is the question though.]
johnmcc said on 15/Dec/13
Cant be this height, after seeing that Denisof is 184cm. He was always a couple cm shorter on Angel.
Balrog said on 12/Dec/13
One thing for sure is that Boreanaz looked 3.5" taller than James Masters on Buffy...
Mathew said on 4/Dec/13
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 14/Nov/13
Suitable downgrade. He could still be 6 0⅛ (1.83 m) though.
You'd really need a stadiometer to tell the difference between 6-0 1/8 and 6-0 1/4. I mean, trying to peg quarter inches is hard enough let alone 1/8ths.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/13
"David Boreanaz height: 6ft 0.75in (185cm)"
Might even be the full 6ft1. In old episodes of Buffy, looks 186-187cm range with Nicholas Brendan (listed 5ft10). Has 2in on Eric Millegan (might be fraction under 5ft11?). Rob met both of those guys.
The current listing is acceptable, but no less than that.
Lorne said on 30/Aug/13
He could be as low as 6ft0.25, but never, ever less. A great listing.
said on 10/Jul/13
It's impossible to tell because David is leaning heavily, but this is at least a picture with him and Emily Deschanel barefoot. I guess 6'0.5 is a fair listing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/13
I think 6"0.75"(185cm) could be spot on. Looked 6"1"- 6"2" range in Angel.
cole said on 20/Jun/13
He can look anywhere 183-185 cm range.
Gina said on 8/Jun/13
I believe my brother may stand taller then David, my brother stands 6"6 6"7, and no he does not play basket ball lol
Josh said on 2/Jun/13
Legit 6'0 and good actor
said on 17/Feb/13
Editor Rob, why do a most websites have him down as being 6'1'' (1.85).
[Editor Rob: I think he's somewhere between 6ft and 6ft 1 personally]
cole said on 9/Feb/13
I think he might be a fraction taller than this, 6'0.75 (185 cm).
R said on 7/Feb/13
This is the a nice calculation i agree with Rob on this 1 i mostly disagree with most of the guys claiming over 6'2 to 6'5 but this is right. Plus David was taller when he was in buff he shrunk a lil as he went through buffy to bones.
Venga said on 26/Jan/13
But then, that guy who plays the shrink is a full inch taller when both are on a full body shot and he's listed 6'0".
Balrog said on 25/Jan/13
Boreanaz never got towered by August Richards who Rob met him and is a legit 6'3''. Even with poor posture he looks above average. No way he's 5'11''
tom said on 24/Jan/13
6-0 looks spot on david.
said on 6/Jan/13
So Rob, do you think he could be closer to 5'11 or are you stuck on the current listing? I agree with Hew he looks 5'11.5 at times, even lower though only when slouching.
[Editor Rob: the 5ft 11 is too low a guess, he just seems a bigger guy than that.]
Balrog said on 20/Oct/12
I think this listing is quite good, Boreanaz looks between 6'0'' and 6'1''. A tall guy and to me a great and underestimated actor.
Bakura said on 24/Sep/12
5'10? What? He was several inches taller than James Marsters, who we know, considering Rob has met him, is 5'9 at the absolute minimum. Not to mention him being described as tall in countless episodes of Angel. Is he hell average height. 184-85 range is correct.
anon said on 20/Sep/12
Met him in person I stand 5'9 yes I measure so I am always that height in heels he is a solid 6'1 much taller than me and my friend is another celeb who was there is huge standing at 6'4 solid. Yet David almost the same size as my friend. David IS TALLLL over 6'0 not taller than 6'4 Just thought I would chime in ;D
Kal said on 2/Sep/12
I say 5'10" Just look at him in relation to any doorway, on Angel. He's average height, no more, no less. Any fan that's rewhatched the shows over the years, should notice this. Also, he's only an inch taller than Emily Daschenel, who's a solid 5'9"
Len said on 19/Aug/12
A 6'0" guy with terrific posture, build, and presence that makes him seem taller than he really is.
Seriously, check out pics of him standing right next to Wes or Gunn from Angel. They're both considerably taller than him, but on the show, you barely if ever notice this.
said on 7/Feb/12
I saw every episode of Angel too, this guy is roughly 6'0" when he actually stands straight, give or take a cm. Definitely, absolutely not 6'1", and most often comes across as less than 6'0". This can be observed in many candid pics with roughly 5'9" Emily Descanel.
Evan said on 27/Jan/12
Same height as 5'11.5" Brendan Fehr.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/11
His height is 184.5cm(6"0.75), just about 6"1...
daggxsent said on 6/Dec/11
Im a big fan of angel series, and i also seen boreanaz in many other tv shows and movies, he is 6'1 (1.85) or possibly 1.84 cm no less than that, but more surely 1.85 cm
Shaun said on 27/Oct/11
Spot on, 184-85 range.
jake, 1.82 m said on 16/Oct/11
Looks quite tall on Bones, 183-184 cm or so. He's probably near 6" 1(185 cm) in the morning.
Anon said on 11/Oct/11
The average height in southern Italy particularly Sicily is well documented at 5'8 compared to the northern regions recorded at 5'9 and 5'9.5 respectively. Having visited Denmark aswell as various parts of The Netherlands i would safely say that Denmark has a 179/180cm average possibly a full 5'11 depending on where you visit and Holland has a marked increase on that height and is definately 5'11.5 - 6'0. 6'1 is officially what they claim as their average but this is really an exaggeration. I have also heard some Dutch people claiming 6'2 and 6'3 as average height which is of course completely ludicrous. The Dutch only really overtook the standard 5'10 european average after the 1950's when their pre and postnatal care became world class aswell as nutrition improving considerably. In school 'healthy eating is drilled into the students' as i heard one dutch person say and families on average are very health conscious. Now compare that to England where i'm from I would say we are pretty damn lucky to even have a 5'10 average as pre/postnatal care is nothing special and our youngsters are fed cheap greasy junk food in school by the state. I feel incredibly lucky to have made 6'1. It doesn't take an Einstein to figure out what factors the average height of a population are attributed to!
jake, 1.82 m said on 20/Sep/11
I live in Australia and can tell you that 5ft9-5ft10.5 is extremely common for men all ages and is the average range.
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 5/Sep/11
"I've never seen a chart that has shown the average white man to be more than 5"10'"
Then you should look at Scandinavia, Germany, Netherlands ..
Not to mention the white South Africans (Afrikaaners) are giants, as are some people in some regions of Serbia/Yugoslavia/Balkans...
anon44 said on 27/Aug/11
"My father was born in Sicily and he said he was about average to his region at 5'11."
Lol, Sicilians are notoriously short. The average is more like 5'6 for Sicily.
Charles said on 3/Aug/11
On TV he looks to be no taller than many of the women on the show.
Camille said on 20/Jul/11
David is just under 6 feet. 5'11 3/4. He is broad shouldered and somehwat large boned. Looks great.
Da Man said on 19/Jul/11
random1, you meet people who are 6' but claim 5-10 or 5-11? LOL, yeah right, I think your height estimation is inflated by 1-2". It's FAR more common to see 5-11 guys claiming 6 foot.
6'0" is above average, not uncommonly tall by any stretch, but easily above average.
random1 said on 19/Jul/11
Wow this is a racist thread. And by the way folks it's impossible to actually figure out an exact average on height for the whole population because there are too many people. If you think about it, 6' or 6'1" really is a pretty average height. I'm 6'4" and yeah even though I tower over a lot of people that not as shorter than me as they think. I meet people who are six foot easy all the time who say their 5'10" or 5'11" but they really are taller than that
Da Man said on 9/Jul/11
Aaron says on 6/Jan/11, "6'1" IS average for a white guy."
Male heights only:
Average Australian height - 5-10
Average US height (white only) - 5-10.5
Average Denmark height - 5'11"
Average French height - 5-8.5
Average German height - 5-10
Average Belgian height - 5-10.5
Average Canadian height - 5-9.5
Average Polish height - 5-10.5
Simply put, the AVERAGE white man's height isn't even close to 6'1". I can pretty much guarantee you would peg a legit 6'1' guy at over 6'2".
Da Man said on 9/Jul/11
6'0" to 6'0.5", I don't why this man's height fools people into thinking he's taller, he doesn't look 6'1".
Gwen said on 28/Jun/11
I know him, he used to come to my house and he went to my friends moms brothers funeral. " I am 6.1 " he said to my friends mom.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/11
Alexis Denisof isn't quite 6ft2...more 186-187cm.
6ft1 isn't entirely impossible for Boreanaz
chris said on 15/Jun/11
I dunno. I've been watching angel, and standing between 6'2 Alexis denisof and 6'3 j august richards he looks smaller than 6' or 6'1. he does seem to have kind of bad posture, but he also wears boots. id wager to guess 5'11, Hollywood grants most leading men a couple of extra inches
Brazilian Fellow said on 12/Jun/11
I've been watching to Bones these days, and one thing is really intriguing about this guy: he has a large build, broad shoulders, and yet, rather than looking shorter than his 6'0"-6'1" height, he actually looks taller. How does that happen?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Apr/11
gypse said on 8/Apr/11
In one episode, Bones said something indicating that Booth is "freakishly tall". I thought that curious since Sweets is taller and Booth doesn't loom above anyone in the show.
Alex said on 12/Mar/11
@anonymous - whites are usually the tallest followed by africans, asians and latinos. but careful - white is not one group. teh further north you go the taller. every1 in europe knows that. portogese
since this is all mixed in the US, the average german MAle is clearly taller than teh US male. i am germanic, 6"2, and was recently in germany - i really didnt feel tall at all. ...since everybody in teh room seemed to be 6.1" to 6,%' on average. this is also a new generation thing - every one gets taller... there ar eless freak exception like in the US, like BIG SHOW, or some Basketball blacks (normally skinny race), but that's to be believed because of beef & chicken doped with growth hormone substances...so you have less of the 7 footers, or 600 pound mammas that need to be airlifted out of their bathroom. definitely never see that there.
jade said on 9/Mar/11
i think 185m is right
Shaun said on 18/Feb/11
Looks a weak 6'1, same height as David Schwimmer and Keanu Reeves.
Anonymous said on 4/Feb/11
When I was a grad student at UCLA in 2005 I was in an insurance building and was in the elevator with him and I am 6'4" and 255lbs and he is maybe 6'1" on a good day and not that heavily built, broad shoulders but average/thin framed.I will say he is quick witted and is also very polite.He wasn't arrogant or too good to talk to, he was just a nice guy. He just wasn't as tall as I thought and also wasn't as stocky.

6'1 is not average for "white guys" because The Netherlands, Scandanavia, and South Slav countries do not even make up 50% of "white guys". Also, I'd only agree the Netherlands has an unsually tall standard for height and not South Slav countries because I believe that's completely bogus. The biggest populations of "white guys" - Russia, Germany, Ukraine, Poland, Italy, France, etc in europe definitely do not have an average of 6'1 so it's completely absurd to generalize "white guys" in this way. As it remains, Holland's population is multipled several times by these countries individually, let alone as a whole and Holland most certainly does NOT constitute "white guys" as whole.
Boreanaz who is 6'1, a West Slav/Italian, is clearly not average height, although not so according to you. It's incredible how either ignorant or delusional some people who write things on the internet are.
Aaron said on 6/Jan/11
He doesn't really have a strong build. His small, squarish head and large chin make him look more robust than he really is.
6'1" IS average for a white guy. Human averages are ONLY relative to genotype.
The average Dutch person from Holland (aka The Netherlands) and most Southern Slavic Europeans is 6'1", and getting taller. Average heights in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Iceland, and all other Nordic countries are about 6' for young people.
Boreanaz is 6'1" at best; he's absolutely average in height, build, looks, and talent. Of course, my opinion is a factor, but we're trying to be superficial here. I myself am 6'4" (I'm 17) and for the most part I'm average in a heavily Northern European town.
krazy krippled! said on 2/Jan/11
He has a strong build at 6'1, so he seems kinda big
Da Man said on 10/Dec/10
6'0-1/4" is 3.25" taller than the average male in the US, most will consider this "tall" unless they themselves are notably taller. I would love to see people who pin Boreanaz at 6'1" or over estimate people's height with a stadiometer ready to go. I think most of these people would be shocked at what's a LEGIT, barefoot 6'1". I can almost guarantee these same people would be pegging legit 6'1" guys at 6'2"-6'3"+.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Dec/10
Bon since when is 6ft 0.25in really tall?
Jim said on 2/Dec/10
I'm 6'1" and saw him up close at hockey game in LA and he's the same height.
Bon said on 30/Nov/10
Though I might change my opinion to 6'0.25 in the morning.
Bon said on 21/Nov/10
6'0.25. Really tall guy with great posture and build.
Wake up! said on 28/Sep/07
I will get the old movie clip the interview work again.
But yes I do know that Angel in the Tv show is taller then Spike also
Sarah-Michelle-Gellar that plays Buffy looks as she is as tall or in the same height as many of the other actors
and the guy who played superman in superman returns the newest movie you know that he wear a muscle suit
under his superman clothes right???
You must understand the difference between Hollywood movies = fiction and reality...
The movie Interview Clip I showed when it were online proved that David/Angel were not taller then Amy Acker or the actor that Played Spike or the woman that interviewed them...
Listen Up Kay you said why would he lie about his height why wouldnīt he....
Many actors lie abote height and other things to get more attention and publicity...
One thing more kay
Boots donīt make Amy Acker go from 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) Tall to 6 ft 2 Tall if we assume that David is 6 ft 2 tall witch I have proved before isnīt the case.
God bless and listen David is as of an great actor and person even if he isīt that tall ... I only care for the truth because people deservs to know that.
said on 26/Sep/07
The movie clip proves it and many famous movie stars lies about their height..
Why because they like to be taller then they are people do not like to be short I do not know why but the truth is like that just ask Stallone Rocky for example whitch also had lied about his height it exist a lot of famous star that has done that but now we are talking about David .
In the picture above you see Kay that David not its much taller then Glen
I kvote from earlier post:
"The proof I have sent before in the interview also Glenn at the pictue above is in the picture at this url:
And Guess what Glenn is not taller at all then Sarah-Michelle-Gellar so he is only 5 ft 2.5 in (159 cm) and not 5ft 8 Glenn as it says on this website !.
That means that David is around 5 ft 8 and Glenn on the above picture on this website is 5 ft 2,5 (159cm ).
One thing more Kay ... did James Marsters that playes Spike in Angel that also is interviewed in the movie clip earlier posted had boots also... ..:
You know Spike in the interviewed in the movie clip
Is a bit taller I think you can se in the movie clip or in the same height as Angel, David:
And guess what Spike (James Marsters) is only around 5ft 9
So it still remains David is not 6/1 he is close around to 5 ft 8 or 5 ft 9.
Thats final that the truth and the movie clip proves it if you think that Amy Acker had boots with I do not believe then Spike, James Marsters did not and Angel, David is not taller then Spike, James Marsters in the movie clip Interview and James Marsters is only 5 ft 9 ( 175 cm) and he is a bit taller then angel in the movie clip maybe 2 cm .
[Editor Rob: you ever watched buffy or angel and seen angel standing beside spike? Please do so...]
kay said on 20/Sep/07
No David said himself is 6/1 and a half, why should he lie, sure Amy Acker looks not so small compared to him, she always wore boots and she is 5/8 that is quite tall
said on 11/Aug/07
Yeah she might, Sara Michelle Geller think he is tall....
Because shes only "Sarah Michelle Gellar's height is 5 ft 2.5 in (159 cm) "
The proof I have sent before in the interview also Glenn at the pictue above is in the picture at this url:
And Guess what Glenn is not taller at all then Sarah-Michelle-Gellar so he is only 5 ft 2.5 in (159 cm) and not 5ft 8 Glenn as it says on this website !.
Have a nice day
Elisabeth said on 11/Aug/07
Well,compared to Sarah Mitchel Geller....He is pretty darn tall.I loved his character as angel in Buffy the vampire slayer.Especially as a mean dude.
said on 23/Jul/07
Give me a break ! They make people look taller in hollywood taller than they really are in reality..
Just take stallone for example ....
I can prove it:
Look here a real interview with the famous David Boreanaz from the Angel tv show along with cast members like Amy Acker known
as Winifred 'Fred' Burkle from the Angel tv show along with some other actors from the Angel tv show.
I were surprised to see that David Boreanaz wasnīt much taller then Amy Acker in the reality !
Amy Acker is known as Winifred 'Fred' Burkle
from the Angel tv show and she is only 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) Tall:
Amy Acker's height is 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) Tall ...
Look for info about her height here url below:
Watch the interview here and you see for yourself David Boreanaz is not taller then the only girl actress interviewed from
the Angel tv show in this Interview known as Winifred 'Fred' Burkle real name :
Interview here and you see the proof:
Also David Boreanaz wife, Jaime Bergman is His wife, Jamie Bergman was very short...maybe 5'2 if that !!
If you look at some pictures of her and David you can se that the difference between their height the difference is at most
maybe 16 cm at maximum between their heights:
That will be: His wife is 1.58 cm then will David be 1.74 m ( 1.58cm + 16 cm ) or 174cm or we can say around 5 ft 8...
kay said on 17/Jul/07
he said himself in an interview that he is 6/1 and a half
anonymus said on 22/Jun/07
David Boreanaz is hot. I think David is slouching beacause hes trying to look as tall as Glenn so glenn wont feel so bad that he didnt eat his vegetables when he was younger. Thats what I think.
Viper said on 16/Feb/07
Vanderbeek is around 5-10.
Claire said on 15/Feb/07
I saw him next to James van der beek and David had at least 1 inch, probably two on James
David said on 30/Jan/07
He does seem to slouch abit, especially in Angel. Alexis Denisoff is listed as 6'2' and seems about an inch taller than Boreanaz
Viper said on 31/Dec/06
Hes always looked 6-0 to me.
bikagyura said on 31/Dec/06
I also always thought he looked 6' 2"... I won't disagree though if you say that he's 6' 1" or 6' 0―" (maybe 6'").. he simply looks 6' 2" in frame..
Rachel said on 30/Dec/06
That's kinda surprising. His co-stars must be pretty tall because he's shorter than most of them.
shara16 said on 23/Jun/06
Iīd say he is 6'1.25.It writes on buffy site.But he looks 6'2.
J-Dog said on 25/Apr/06
He looks about 6'1" by Michael McDonald in a sketch they did on MadTV. I think he may just slightly be under 6'1" if he is maybe more 6'.75" I know that is getting awfully picky.
D. Ray Morton said on 4/Feb/06
Holy crap, it's Seeley "Posturepedic" Booth himself! He be slouchin' quite a bit.
Glenn, what was your impression as to his height?
CelebHeights Editor said on 28/Aug/05
Adam Baldwin said in Xpose magazine: "I'm 6'4". David Boreananz (Angel) is a big guy too, maybe 6'1". I am 230 pounds so he's probably 200, 210. He's a formidable presence so it's not like I can dominate him. Plus, they put the camera angles lower so it makes him look bigger. The show is named after him you know"
CelebHeights Editor said on 26/Aug/05
From angel newsgroup: "David Boreanz - 6' 1" - You're joking, right. He passed us in the street a few months ago, and I'd have sworn he was shorter than me and I'm 5'11".
The Senator said on 20/Jun/05
He was a guest at my cousin's wedding. I met him, stood right next to him, etc. He was definitely 6'1. I am 5'10 in my bare feet and I was wearing a 2 inch heel. He was still an inch taller than me, at least. And, my boyfriend is 6'3 and he was slightly shorter than my boyfriend. (David is also a very nice person). His wife, Jamie Bergman was very short...maybe 5'2 if that.
8-ball said on 10/Jun/05
I saw him at the club a little while back. He was a bit shorter than me. Me = 6'1.25"(186cm) barefoot. I'd guess he is 6' even (184cm) in his barefeet.
Smoke said on 11/Apr/05
Hmm...here's an interesting guy, I have always thought him to be his advertised height. I'm not sure if Alan Cumming really is the 5'10" that he's advertised at, but in this pic Dave really does look about 3 inches taller than Cumming. I've never met Dave, but in comparison to Dido (about 5'7") and Cumming he really does look about 6'1".
Mysterio said on 13/Mar/05
He definately looks a well built 6'0"-6'1", he's actually listed at 6'2" in many places and is never listed as being anything less than 6'1". But seeing him in many pictures and on many shows it is very possibly he is slightly shorter than 6'1". I've never met him, but the height listed for him here could be spot on. There is a picture of him with 6'0" hockey player Matthew Barnaby and they do look about the same height, Dave is definately not shorter than Barnaby.
