Comment on the Height of Javier Bardem

176.2 cm (5ft 9.37in) said on 16/Dec/15
Even if I'd be 1" taller I would hate to have such a big head!
plus said on 6/Nov/15
He is 183 cm. He is the tallest of popular Spanish actors, for example Jose Coronado is 178 cm the same height for Miguel Angel Silvestre, 177 cm for Mario Casas and 179 cm for Hugo Silva and Alex Gonzalez. Imanol Arias and Antonio Resines are 176 cm
The Dutch Guy said on 22/Oct/15
Strong 5'10" and weak 5'11". Anything in the between is acurate.
Andrea said on 17/May/15
Yeah, Judd! Look at the pictures of him with the 183-184 italian actor i've posted! He looks max 179-180... There's no need of giving him that quarter inch, Rob! At least, give him 5'11 flat...
Judd said on 13/May/15
IMO he's more 179-180 cms than 180-181 cms...look at him with Tommy Lee Jones (5'11.5")...he's visibly shorter. 5'10.75" would be better!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Apr/15
Another guy whose a lot shorter than expected...
Dmeyer said on 7/Apr/15
Looks more than 1cm over fassbender who looks a 180cm Guy
Dr JJ said on 6/Apr/15
Always look for a standard measure, in science, engineering or medicine. Lying celebrities who wear lifts are not 'standard measures' so comparing one with another gets you nowhere. Woody Allen, on the other hand, doesn't need to lie about his height and is a standard measure. Listed here as 5' 5" but age likely means 5' 4.5" these days or less. Penelope Cruz with platform high-heeled shoes is only about an inch taller than Woody. Give Allen an inch of shoe and subtract three inches from Cruz and you have a 5' 2" - 5' 3" woman. With that in mind we have a 5' 10" absolute max for Bardem (who benefits from an absolutely enormous head). He often appears to have custom shoes on at red carpet events. Downgrade needed.
Judd said on 2/Feb/15
Bardem was visible shorter than Tommy Lee Jones. Unless TLJ is today 6'0" or more (I doubt it) Bardem can't be 5'11.25"! IMO today Bardem is 5'10.5-11" (max), Fassbender 5'10.5" and TLJ is 5'11.5".
Sam said on 21/Nov/14
I think it's possible Bardem's accurate at 181 cm, Fassbender at 180 cm. Jones does edge Bardem out by you'd never guess that from watching No Country for Old Men.
Dejavu said on 18/Nov/14
Tommy Lee Jones who is maybe a weak 6'0 edges out Bardem.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/14
182cm could be closer if Fassbender is 180-181cm
Sam said on 30/Oct/14
Some more pictures with Michael Fassbender, Bardem does seem to have a fractional edge on Fassbender.

Those shoes in the Daniel Craig pics have a huge lift (check out the vamp it's a dead giveaway) giving him at least 2 inches or more. That pic is like the battle of the elevator shoes. Taller than 5'7" though.
cole said on 25/Jul/14
@Andrea: Those pics aren't the best to compare, but I think Luca looks his claim compared to James Marsden, who just never looks 5'10 in credible shots (I wouldn't go over 176 cm for him). And with 6'0.5 Richard Jenkins, he looks about the same as him. Bardem can look a flat 180 cm a lot, like I've said. But I wouldn't rule out 181 cm. As low as 179 cm flat? It would surprise me if he turned out to be that. Between 5'10.75 and 5'11.25, I would say is my lowest-highest estimate range for him.
Andrea said on 29/Jun/14
cole, I highly doubt he could be 181!
There are some photos with an italian actor who claimed 183 and, more recently, 184... I can believe he measures between 183 and 4, like 183.5, which explains his claims. But no more than that!
Here are some photos:

I dont know what you think, but he does look at least 4 cms shorter to me! So let's say that guy is 183.5, Bardem isn't over 179-179.5... Rob, you still think he's that's a solid 181 guy next to a 183-184 guy? Noway!
cole said on 25/Jun/14
Actually seeing him more recently in quite regular footwear with Michael Fassbender he can look the listed 181 cm. 180 cm is equally likely though.
SAK said on 7/May/14
Gilipollas says: Slouches pretty much, aging badly, ugly as hell and a hell of an actor sooo talented. 5'11" and looks like it.
'ugly as hell' a little harsh.

He is deffo in 5f11 range. The listing is spot on.

Rebecca Hall 174 Javier Bardem 179
Arch Stanton said on 22/Mar/14
Rob he has minimum 2 inches on Rebecca Hall in Vicky Christina. I doubt she's really 5 ft 10.
powerbrokers said on 26/Feb/14
he is shorter than Mark Wahlberg who is a mere 5'8", Bardem is 5'7"
FM said on 28/Jan/14
5'11.25" looks spot on.

On a funny note, this article I read about shorter actors in Hollywood had him at 5'7" - which he is clearly taller than.

Sam said on 13/Nov/13
He talks about nearly envying Brad Pitt's looks, but at any rate he's a hell of an actor...just see him in the three films Rob lists at the top.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/13
Like Russell Crowe, suprisingly shorter in person.
Sam said on 9/Oct/13
The angles are not ideal but Bardem does strike me as a bit taller than Michael Fassbender. Maybe 2 cm, so Bardem at 181 cm and Fassbender at 179 cm.

He seems 1 or 2 cm taller than Daniel Craig, I think he is 511

What do you recon Rob? I can see more or less 5'10-11 range, not sure on the 5'11.25. He's not 5'7 or 5'8, that's for sure.
[Editor Rob: the link doesn't work, but I think around 5ft 11 is generally what he can look.]
Polys said on 23/Jun/13
VH1 just made an article about short celebrities Click Here this guy is listed as 5'7, he really looks tall but the article is correct for sure about the 9 from the 10 actors, so probably they do know something
cole said on 14/Jun/13
Personally I would not go much over 5'11 for him, even 5'10.5 could be right. He wears big footwear, so it's not that surprising that he can look 6ft or more at times.
David said on 8/Apr/13
6'1 (1,85 m.) according to some sources.
May be 6'0 (1'83 m.) is more accurate.

He is not huge, but no doubt he's a big guy
Sam said on 3/Apr/13
true, it's hard to buy that he's under 5'11" range. 5'7" would be tough to disguise so consistently. Bardem is a couple of inches over average not under it.
17, 182 said on 29/Mar/13
Was he downgraded Rob? I swore he was 182 the last time I checked.
Original said on 9/Mar/13
5'10 or 5'11 never.

He's 5'11.5, max 6', min 5'11.25".

Leonerdi said on 29/Jan/13
5-11 max. Met him at Barajas Airport terminal 4, Madrid. He is a big guy, very moody and eith this big ego. Very ugly too! Nothing important but ugly as hell and wears this dirty look...
Converselover said on 14/Jan/13
I couldn't see this guy over 5'11". 5'10.5" sounds right. He's a good height nonetheless
Max said on 10/Jan/13
If Bardem is 5'11" or 6', how tall is Woody Allen then?

Hew said on 5/Jan/13
He wears massive boots at times, this guy could easily be arund 5'10.
David said on 3/Jan/13
I've got a picture with him when he was shooting Goya's ghosts (i'll upload it as soon as i take the chance) He's taller than just 5'11.25. I'm 5'9 and he's much taller than me. Six foot is more accurate. I promise I'll upload the photo. He's six foot for sure.
Archie said on 24/Dec/12
This guys shorter than Daniel Craig.... 5'10 MAX
Spanish Girl said on 21/Dec/12
Javier Bardem: 183 cm for sure! :)
Jed said on 15/Nov/12
There's a picture of Craig standing next to him - a full body shot - and craig has an inch on him. I'll look for the link.
Robert Gray said on 14/Nov/12
@ceci...I think my post went completely over your head. I'm aware of all of those things you mentioned (not sure how they relate though) - all I was saying is I heard that he's a little shorter than his listed height but his build might make him seem taller. His shoes from the Skyfall premiere also seem a little suspicious as well.
ceci said on 11/Nov/12
Robert Gray. Javier Bardem doesn't have anything special in his shoes, as you put it. The role he was playing might have. He is an actor, after all, so he portrayed someone with undefinable sexual preferences. the actor is a husband and father. Married to Penelope Cruz. It's interesting when people can't tell a role from the person portraying it.
nick said on 11/Nov/12
i think javier bardem is 5"11 cause i think daniel ndcraig is 5"9 and a half that daniel with shoes is 5"10 a quarter.
Robert Gray said on 5/Nov/12
A friend of mine worked on Skyfall and saw Bardem without shoes on and said he was actually more around 5'8. Crazy I know, but his long arms and heavy build probably make him seem taller. Not to mention having a little somethin' special in his shoes.
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
I heard he is 6 foot but i remember someone said he is 179cm. Someone said he was two inches taller than daniel craig. I don't believe that. Daniel craig is close to 5 foot 10 and javier is probably 181cm.
Shaun said on 23/Oct/12
Bardem would be considered a solid tall man in Spain, yes, but not a giant.
Shaun said on 23/Oct/12
I had seen another photo of them and Bardem looked 2 inches taller. I have Daniel Craig as 5'10.5".
Shaun said on 23/Oct/12

Don't know about Craig's but Bardem's look suspicious here, raised angle. I came here guessing 6-6'1" until I saw his footwear.
Len said on 30/Sep/12
An imposing presence who comes across as taller than he is.
Sylinher said on 2/Sep/12
he must be 1.80-1.81 roughly
here with benjamin bratt who is listed as 1.87 Click Here
I mean bardem is not really tall..more like average height...but i suppose he is a giant in spain
shrapnel said on 22/Aug/12
o.k. 2". But not less than 1.5"
Dr JJ said on 22/Aug/12
Whoa! Both Daniel Craig and Bardem have elevator shoes in their 007 press shots. Bardem's are more obvious, but that exaggerated angle between the toe section and laced section is a dead giveaway. Lifts, custom elevators, both the same height. Whatever that height is, your guess is as good as mine!
satchy said on 27/Jul/12
he is tall like 6ft
Lucchese enthusiast said on 26/Jul/12
Hi to all,
Explained through the Lucchese Boot Toes & Heels chart, in this scene the boots worn by Javier Bardem have a #3 toe, clearly visible at 3:56 - I thought it could be #5 toe, but it's too narrow for that - and 2" #6 Riding Heel, or equivalent in others brands. One thing I noticed is the fact that he has apparently very big (meaning wide) feets, it seems those boots are EE or even maybe EEE width.
There's no 3" heels, I never saw that in any boot brand I know.
The most highest kind of heel I know is the "Fashion Heel" proposed by Blackjack Boots, but I think it's only for women boots, and it's only 2"1/4 high, anyway at 4:00 it's evident that's not "fashion heel".
No, the most likely it's Lucchese #6 heel, 2" high.
shrapnel said on 25/Jan/12
Minute 4:00 of ths scene. You're telling me that those heels are 1.5" or less?

Sam said on 23/Jan/12
Those weird leathery boots looked nowhere close to 3 inches high in No Country. Do you know how chunky that would look? They were probably about 1.5 inches or slightly less.
J said on 30/Jul/07
In this pictures, you can see him (Converse AllStar) with Scarlett Johansson (flat shoes) and Woody Allen. Maybe you can confirm or recalculate his height:

Im 6'1 exactly and i was a bit taller than him, maybe an inch.

I have seen then sometimes; I am 5'10'' and he is at least 3 inches taller than me ;maybe more.
Gonzalo said on 19/Dec/06
I heard six feet in s spanish program on TV. He looks around that height. My wife said he looked very tall when she saw him.
By the way, Robin Wright is gorgeous in that pic with Bardem and Penn. She is got a charming smile
Pete said on 17/Nov/06
met him once. hes 5-11 at the most
chavi said on 8/Sep/06
Actually met the guy. Looked near to 6'1".
ralph said on 6/Aug/06
Rob, change his height to 6"1". That pic with penn proves he is that height.
ralph said on 16/Jul/06
he is definetely not 5"11" .Possibly he is listed here as a 5"11", but he is known as a 6"1" man.
ferg said on 6/Apr/06
I had seen him sometimes and I think he is 6 ft.
Fran said on 5/Feb/06
Im sure that his height is more than 5'11' (almost 6')because have been near them two times and I'm 5'10''. He's big and looks very strong. To raj: in Spain there are actors (like in the rest of the world) taller and tiner, but if your reference is Antonio Banderas, in fact, he's... no tall (absolutely).
Gotxo said on 30/May/05
The woman standing at his left is his mother. Dunno her height but she's tall compared to another spanish actresses, plus she's evidently wearing big heels (do notice the feet/leg angle). I've never met him, but he's usually taller than the rest of the cast, i'm also 5'11" on de dot and easily feel myself puny (especially compared to young both women/men). He looks tallish in the screen withouth camera angles, in shots that captures shoes too.
A person that scraps 197cm is not a good judge if the height diff is so big
Ramon said on 11/Mar/05
Im spanish. Ive met him in several premiers. Im 6 ft 5 1/2 and his real height is near 180 cm (5 ft 11).
