Comment on the Height of Martin Sheen

I stood next to him at a wrap party for The War at Home in Austin, TX. HE LOOKED 5'5 to me, but I'll accept 5'6.

Rob, could you add to his credits?: Gandhi, The Dead Zone, Gettysburg, Catch Me If You Can and The Way.

Funny he plays 6'2 Warren Anderson in Bhopal movie. He does a fine job though.
Mike said on 3/Dec/14
Never really looked a full 5ft 7 IMO. 5ft 6.5 peak is better.

Rob, think you're out an inch on this atleast. He's definitely, or atleast was, 5ft7 minimum in his prime. Apocalypse Now, for one. Which also makes your listing out for Emilio, his son, who I am certain is minimum close to 5ft6, Which in turn throws out Tom Curise height.

Rob can you add Badlands? Does look at least 5 ft 7 in it.

held an elevator for him at the Omni hotel in Norfolk, va early 80's. I 'm
6 ft even and he came up to my waist. he was shod in 3" lifts. I would suggest he is only 5 ft 3" plus or minus. agents always shade the facts re: height!
Realist said on 15/May/14
Rob he gets away looking average, i dont know how ?
Arch Stanton said on 24/Sep/13
Hmmm in Gandhi he looks more 5'6.5" next to 172cm Ben Kingsley. Kingsley looks 1-1.5" taller than Martin Sheen in it.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Sep/13
Yeah he didn't look as low as 5 ft 6 in Apocalypse now, looks 5'7" range to me.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Jan/13
Is it me or does he look a lot like Regis physically and facially?
John D said on 2/Feb/12
Looks 5'7" in Apocalypse now.

Rob , can you give him a peak height ? .. He looks taller then 5'6 in Apocalypse Now !
Adam Brennon said on 21/Sep/07
I don't mean to sound ponderous Savage, but are you sure you're 5' 6"? Is it possible you're any taller?
Steve Savage said on 20/Sep/07
I stand by my account, since I passed right by him in person (see my older post). He's a tiny fellow, and me looks even tinier because he's so pudgy now. At 5' 6" i'm no giant and he was no taller than my dad, who was 5'3".
Adam Brennon said on 2/Sep/07
I agree with 'Josh', he didnt appear to be drastically short in 'Apocalypse Now'. The only person in the film who dwarfs him is that objectively very tall supply guy.

a co worker of mine at the time (about a year ago or so) also worked at LAX as a ticket checker (correct term?) and happened to check in martin sheen and had commented how short he was. i stand at about 5'6" or so with my ever day footwear for work, she wears high heels to work at LAX and happened to be wearing them when she told me this(it happened the same day literally just hours before) .when she commented she made a gesture with her hand witch to me seemed at about eye level +/-......well just food for thought.
Josh said on 1/May/07
martin looked 5ft 7 atleast in apocalypse now or a bit taller.
he cant have lost that much height because he is not really old and has not got bone trouble.
marlon said on 2/Mar/07
martin sheen didnt look that short in apocalypse now.
he looked a good avarage height similuar to charlie sheen.
Steve Savage said on 17/Jan/07
I saw Martin Sheen with his bodyguard in a Las Vegas casino back in 2000. The bodyguard was tall, Sheen was not! I'm 5'6" and I towered over him even though I was wearing low heel dress shoes at the time. I would say he's no bigger than 5' 3" tall.
Franco said on 3/Jan/07
5'5 is his proper height today, i have seen many many movies, including CASSANDRA CROSSING (when he was young), THE DEAD ZONE and many others, he looked 5'7 in most movies maybe even 5'8 (lifts), so that means he was exactly 5'6 without shoes.

today i have noticed he rounded up, got older and 100% got shorter, he looks 5'6 with shoes that means 5'5 height if not slightly less, 5.4.5 but not below. :)
the shredder said on 3/Dec/06
yea , i have not really seen many pics or movies with this guy . he is older now though , but i do think he can be taller then this 5'6 Rob has him at !!! he really does look atleast 5'7 in Apocalypse Now . anyway , i would give him 5'6.5 - 5'7 !!!
Spence said on 3/Dec/06
I think he is at least 5'6 1/2 and probaly 5'7. He needs to be upgraded. In Wall Street his son a near 5'9 Charlie Sheen is only a few inches taller.
leonari said on 21/Nov/06
T-Man: so what now? you are 5'10"-Sheen is 5'6" to 5'7" and you look eye to eye..where are your eyes? same level as your mouth??? get some reason into your posts dude.really.
Tman said on 21/Nov/06
I met Martin Sheen several years ago. I'm 5'10. We were talking eye to eye. He was 3 to 31/2 inches shorter than me. Very genuine guy.

[Padraig: Eye to eye, yet 3 inches smaller. So, Martin is officially the actor with the world's smallest brain and eyes that sit at the start of his hairline :=)]

Check out photos of this guy and Emillio Estevez...

They are very interesting to say the least someone is lying!!

I think Emillion is no more than 5ft 4in, yet this guy looks more

Than the 5ft 6in that he is listed at!!?? very confusing or what!!
A-Bomb said on 6/Feb/06
So do you think he was 5'7" in "Apocalypse Now" Rob?
mcfan said on 26/Nov/05
Martin Sheen has a large head and is quite stocky. Nowadays he's 5'6-5'6.5, but he was 5'7-5'7.5 in his earlier years. Look at "Apocolypse Now". He's shorter than Duvall, but by not as much as you might think. He's slightly taller than Emilio.

Sighting: "I saw Martin Sheen on the other side of the square..(describes meeting him)....And one more thing, I am 5ft 2 and was able to look straight ahead into his eyes."
leonari said on 31/Jul/05
LOGAN5...You must be joking right??? Martin Sheen 5'8"...what else?? maybe be his son emilo estevez 5'9"??and Charlie Sheen is 6'1"?? You have no clue what you are talking about...
L0GAN5 said on 30/Jul/05
I reckon he is at least 5'6". If you watch Badlands he is about 6 inches taller than Sissy Spacek who is listed as 5'2", so I can well believe he is 5'8".
TJ said on 8/May/05
Martin Sheen is a good couple of inches taller than Michael J Fox in The American President. Fox is maximum 5'4 (if lucky). I'd say Sheen is 5'6 to 5'7.
Mr R said on 14/Feb/05
He is 5'6" - not the 5'8" he claims - I've worked with him on several projects, and he is still not very tall
