It is possible he was a smidge under 6'2" even at peak, but there's enough evidence that he was pretty close to the 6'2" mark. If Hackman was 6'1.7", then Warren Beatty may have been 6'1.5" (Beatty seemed similar or a hair shorter in Bonnie & Clyde). Yes, he was one of America's best screen actors and The Conversation was probably his best work, even better than The French Connections, Scarecrow, Unforgiven, etc.

Outstanding actor. His best performance was perhaps in The Conversation. It was such a multi-layered portrayal worthy of every accolade under the sun, in my opinion.

he looked the same height as warren beatty if not a tad taller. So my genuine feeling is that Hackman was a strong 6'2, and Beatty was struggling with it
filmfan says on 9/Dec/13
Did a film with footbal star turned actor Jim Brown and was similar height. Brown is stated as 6'2''.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Nov/13
Wasn't a lot shorter than Christopher Reeves either.
Rusty says on 14/Oct/13
I think in Hoosiers he was down to 6'1.5" or so by then because a couple 6'2" people in the movie edged him out slightly.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Oct/13
He was clearly a 6ft2 guy in his prime. He was very tall in The French Connection. Even in Runaway Jury (2003) he was pretty close to John Cusack. He's 6ft1 range now. Similiar to Sean Connery. Lost very little height.
Maio says on 6/Sep/13
hey rob, you don't think that 6ft2 for Hackman is a bit overstimated?

Face to face with Nick Nolte, who was a legit 6ft as you listed and as he claimed, he looks at the same level if not a little shorter...Now, for sure Nolte wore lifts but if Hackman was 188 cm barefeet, in the pic with a pair of flat shoes he must be about 190 cm and Nolte too. I don't think that Nolte wore lifts tall 3 in, it's hard to belive...
Howerver Hackman always looked shorter to me, i think he was in the 6ft1 range, at most 6ft1.25. You're not agree?
juju says on 25/Aug/13
Will smith had one inch on him in enemy of the state. If smith is in the 6 foot 1 range that means hqckman was around 6 foot at that time and was probly passed his peak height. His peak height would be around 6 foot one. Today hes probly shorter
vegas says on 22/Aug/13
shorter than will smith in 1997
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Aug/13
Looked 6ft2-6ft3 in Superman. Less than 2in shorter than Reeves.

I think 188cm peak is closer than 187cm, Arch.
Arch Stanton says on 31/Jul/13
Watched the French Connection earlier and he seemed between 6'1 and 6'2" to me. More a strong 6'1 and than strong 6'2" Petie. It's a good film but nothing special, no different to many action films of the 70s and 80s. Not sure how it won so many Academy Awards, it wasn't by any means a brilliant film or performance.
Petie says on 3/Jul/13
I met him in Santa Fe in the early 90's. He is 6 ft 2inches at the very minimum. Also saw him on the lot at Parmamount a few years later. A very nice guy.
Henrik says on 1/Jul/13
I thought he looked close to Christopher Reeve in Superman II, although Reeve was in flats and he wore visibly thicker footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 21/Jun/13
He's maybe 186cm today. But definitely 6"2 as a young man
Arch Stanton says on 2/Jun/13
Mmm I was watching The Poseidon Adventure earlier and I didn't think he looked as big as 6'2". I think he looked more 6 ft in that film but then again a lot of it was cramping in ship alleys and tunnels and he was rarely stood straight.
Maio says on 26/May/13
Peak: 6 ft 1.25 in/186 cm
Today: 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm
Giles Du Croix says on 11/Mar/13
Tremendously gifted actor. Probably 6'2" in The French Connection. Not much more than 6'0" these days.

Mike J-The military measures you with the shoes they give you.My father was 68.25in,and measured 69.00 flat in his military ID.I hope that helps you.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 30/Jan/13
Peak height: 6ft 1.75in or 6ft 2in (187/188 cm)
Today: 6ft 0.5in (184 cm)
Jamesy says on 18/Jan/13
6'1.5 peak
mike 181cm says on 7/Jan/13
Maybe 6"2 prime now Idk still over 6?
saun says on 6/Jan/13
he look tallest than sean connery in a bridge too far, in photos he look 2 inch taller than connery.
aj says on 24/Dec/12
Definitely around 6ft 2 in his prime. Probably a tad shorter now because of his age.
SPR says on 27/Oct/12
If take will smith as 6 feet 1 inches, than Hackman would have to be shorter saw them in a film together and Smith was about an inch taller, Hackman was old though.
Zach says on 5/Aug/12
Looked exact same height as Denzel Washington in Crimson Tide, aged 65.
