How tall is Michael Caine

Michael Caine's Height

6ft 1in (185 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 2in (188 cm)
British actor best known for roles in films like The Italian Job, Alfie, Get Carter, The Ipcress File, Sleuth, The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Prestige, The Man Who Would Be King, Hannah and Her Sisters and The Cidar House Rules.
I put on a stone for this role. And I humped myself down so that I looked about 5ft 9ins - actually I'm 6ft 2ins
At fifteen I was nearly six feet and as skinny as a rake.
I was six feet two and weighed a hundred and seventy-five pounds.

I think Ewan McGregor, Stephen Dorff, Joaquin Phoenix, Ryan Phillippe and Tobey Maguire are wonderful actors. There are many other fine actors in Hollywood. But... I've never seen a tall one. It seems to me that there's a generation of very talented small people... maybe they are more ambitious because they are more angry because they are short.

184 cm today is likely
Lenad the 5ft9.75in stud said on 26/May/17
I reckon he was a 187cm guy at peak. I can buy a full 6'2 of course, but I suspect he was closer to 187.
berta said on 16/May/17
best listing would be peak 6 for 1 3/4 and curretn 6 fot 1/4. lost 1,5 inches wich is good for him. But as an actor i expect the height loss to be less than averge people ( in most cases)
Danimal said on 10/May/17
Rob, he is 84 years old. The average male shrinks 2" by 80. He is MAX 6'0" today.
Editor Rob: today, six foot on the nose is a good probability for him.
jtm said on 9/May/17
He has better posture than Graff. He's probably struggling with 6'0 now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/17
Caine and Connery are both fine at 6ft2 for the time being. I just think Caine might have fallen into the 187-188cm zone while Connery may have been a little further up the road at 188-189cm
berta said on 7/May/17
tallest possible for him today is 184 and probably is down to strong 183 guy by now. peak 187
Dejavu said on 29/Apr/17
I think he was 6'1.5 and now 6'0.5.
Steve said on 22/Apr/17
He looked a good deal shorter than Morgan Freeman in the intro to the Graham Norton show, would've thought hes under 6 ft now. But he does still have an inch on Zach Braff and doesn't look much shorter than Freeman at the premiere of Going in Style (Click Here) so may well be 6 ft 0.5.
Rory said on 17/Apr/17
Actually no I take that back. I still think when stood well today he can look the full 6 foot and peak I think he looked roughly 6ft 2 I don't think there's any concrete evidence to speak of to warrant a downgrade to 6'1.75 even though it's possible. I think 6ft flat today and peak 6ft 2 would be very fair.
Rory said on 17/Apr/17
Rob, surely he isn't anywhere near 6ft 1 today ? He struggles to look 6ft I think today as of 2017. I'd wager 6'1.75 peak and 5'11.75 today I think. 2 inch loss age 84.
Film man said on 7/Apr/17
I'm a set hand / carpenter and did his latest film. I'm 6ft dead, and he is exactly the same height now. Still a tall dude. 6'2 peak is correct.
S.J.H said on 1/Apr/17
Sean Connery was always 1-1.5cm taller than Michael Caine.
James said on 1/Apr/17
He could measure 6'2" in shoes.
Willes188 said on 28/Mar/17
He could measure just under 6ft 2 in his prime while Connery could measure just over


Caine: 6ft 1 6/8

Connery: 6ft 2.2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/17
I think he had to have been close to it. Don't think he was just 6ft1
berta said on 27/Mar/17
by the way google have him on 184 cm hahah only time googel underlist someone that mutch
berta said on 27/Mar/17
wasnt dwayne johnson like 3 inches taller than him in their movie together? i dont think he is over 6 feet today he is really old now and lets say he was 187 and 183 now, then he only have lost 4 cm at 84 and that is really good
James B said on 20/Mar/17
rob he might have pulled of a 6'2 range illusion when he was younger because he was extremely slim
Editor Rob: he certainly could look it in the 60's, and his type of character, acting etc adds to his persona on screen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Mar/17
You could argue 6ft for Martin in Dirty a Rotten Scoundrels
berta said on 13/Feb/17
classic 187 guy. steve martin at 182 only looked 4 cm shorter but lets say it was 5
James said on 1/Feb/17
It's obvious he was never 6'2" as he never looked that height in anything, not even in "Zulu" next to Sir Stanley Baker.

Caine was 6'1" at the very most.
James said on 31/Jan/17
He gave his peak height as 6'1" in his 1992 autobiography.
Editor Rob: in his What's it All About I saw him call himself 6ft 2 on about 4 occasions.

Also said at 15 he was almost 6ft.
grizz said on 29/Jan/17
@James, link to this claim?
James said on 24/Jan/17
Caine needs downgrading slightly, by his own admission his peak height was 6'1".
S.J.H said on 21/Jan/17
Young michael caine height is more 187+cm than 6'2 and 6'1 now is pretty accurate
James said on 16/Jan/17
Connery was 6'1.5" and Caine was 6'1".
Arch Stanton said on 13/Jan/17
The more I see of Caine's older films the more he looks 6'1 range I think. I think 187 might be nearer, but he was very close to Connery.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Jan/17
@Rob, seeing him with 6'4 John Philip Law in Hurry Sundown it's very difficult to see Caine at a full 6'2. He could look almost 3 inches shorter in fact. With Steve Martin tough to see him at 6'2 too. Maybe 6'1.5. You can't have Garner at 6'1.5 and Caine at 6'2 haha.
Editor Rob: Caine has had 6ft 1 and 2 descriptions, he has always seemed to give 6ft 2 though...he may well be a 6ft 1.5 guy.
Jimbo said on 12/Jan/17
6'1.5" peak

6' Now
Rory said on 6/Jan/17
@James
Seeing as he still looks 6'0.25 today do you really think an 83/84 yr old would only have lost 0.75 inches from his prime ? That would be pretty darn unique.
James said on 4/Jan/17
6'1" was his peak height.
Rory said on 2/Jan/17
I would normally have said someone like Caine in '88 aged 55, a smoker and slightly overweight, would have lost a good cm. The problem is though is generally he's been a guy who has done well holding on to his height, even today aged 83 he still looks at least 6ft and could 15 yrs back still look 6'1-2 range, which makes it seem unlikely he'd have lost anything much by his mid fifties. 187.5 peak and 187 flat in the late 1980s. 184 today. I think he looked about 2 inches taller than Steve Martin in dirty rotten scoundrels.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Dec/16
Mmm looked nearer 186 with Steve Martin in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Had he lost height by '88?
Tim said on 28/Dec/16
Caine was never more than 6'1".
James said on 5/Dec/16
6'2" was clearly with shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft flat today?
Editor Rob: it is becoming more likely.
Z187 said on 1/Dec/16
In his autobio he actually writes his height as 6'1" ....don't know where these quotes are from of him stating that he's 6'2 ... Perhaps he meant in shoes.. I not sure why he would change his mind otherwise, surely you'd be most truthful in your biography and least when you are making a few throwaway comments at interviews or whatever??
HonestSlovene said on 6/Nov/16
35-55 is middle age so yeah around 35 is the start of middle age therefore early middle age. I'd say being young stops at about 33, 31 i still young but at the end of it IMHO. Caine looked 6'1.5"-6'2" in movies peak to me, now due to shrinkage looks like a solid 6'0" to me.
James said on 3/Nov/16
Of course 34 is early middle age. Once you're in your late twenties you know you're not young any more. Caine and Connery were both middle-aged when they became famous.
Shredder said on 30/Oct/16
34 middle age?
James said on 27/Oct/16
Caine was 34 when he arrived in Hollywood in 1967. He was in early middle-age.

Caine probably had small lifts in "The Man Who Would Be King". It was quite obvious he was never 6'2".
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Oct/16
@ Rory. I couldn't agree more with you that a 31-year-old is no way in early middle-age! Whoever said that must come from an incredibly old-minded family! 31 is a fantastic age, as you still have your looks and you have the added bonus of confidence, which is pretty thin on the ground at, say, 20!
Michael Caine starting his acting career at 31 is by no means late by today's standards or those of his day. Look at Dustin Hoffman - 30 when he played the title role in 'The Graduate'! Michael Caine had, and still has, height on his side; Dustin Hoffman is a short 5ft6, but both actors have had staying power because they are so good! This is one example where talent really has been prevalent.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Oct/16
If he was just 6ft1, then Connery was struggling with 6ft2 which is rubbish
Rory said on 22/Oct/16
"Already in early middle age when he became famous"...At age 31, really ? Don't think so.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/16
He was probably nearer 6ft2 than 6ft1
mister_lennon said on 22/Oct/16
I think caine was close to 6'2 at peak, but not a full 6'2. A strong 6'1. About 186 or 187.
James said on 21/Oct/16
Caine was a lot closer to the camera than Lazenby.
James said on 21/Oct/16
Caine was wearing built up shoes in Alfie, as he was already in early middle-age when he became famous.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Oct/16
Disagree. Saw Alfie again recently and could look a full 6'2 a lot. Perhaps 6'1.75.
Editor Rob: look at Caine near Lazenby here.
James said on 19/Oct/16
You could tell from his films that he was never 6'2". 6'1" or 6'1.5" maximum.
Rory said on 14/Oct/16
Yh for his age he's held his height very well, at most he's lost 1.5 inches aged 83.
newbie said on 14/Oct/16
problem I've always had with Caine isn't so much believing he's 6'2 as his posture is generally so poor that he never looks his height and I could believe he was every bit 6'2 and maybe a bit more. Generally you see very few photos where the floor, footwear etc can be verified, with other actors where he doesn't have a slight slouch of shoulders/neck/head. I do find it laughable that some are taking his appearance next to the likes of Bale, when Caine is in his 80s and saying barely taller so never 6'2.

Rory said on 12/Oct/16
6'1.75 peak, 6'0.25-5 today. I can't see a case for him being as low as 6'1 peak, minimum 6'1.5 Imo and his 6'2 claim is perfectly reasonable.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft1 flat peak?
Editor Rob: I think he was taller than it, I wouldn't go that low, even though he had that listing early in his career...he seemed to claim 6ft 2.
James said on 27/Sep/16
Caine was 6'1" at his peak, you can tell from his early movies that he was never 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/16
That's probably because Freeman is still near 6ft2 while Caine has maybe dipped under 6ft1
jervis said on 6/Jul/16
There are some new pics of caine with morgan freeman and freeman is much taller than caine
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/16
Connery at a strong 6ft2 and Caine a weak 6ft2 is what I always saw going with photos of them together and/or the same actors in separate scenes/movies. In Man Who Would Be King, Connery was bald and Caine had boots and a helmet.
jtm said on 18/Jun/16
there is a full body shot in the beginning of the man who would be king and Connery is slightly taller than Caine. to be honest I don't even remember a scene Caine looked taller expect when he is much closer to the camera. sticking with 6'1 peak no more no less
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jun/16
Honestly in the Man WHo Would be King I couldn't decide who was taller out of Caine and Connery, either could look to have the edge depending on the scene. They were very close in height. Always a chance of just under 6 ft 2 for Caine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/16
Somewhere 6ft1½-6ft1¾ peak I think if we're gonna be ultra precise. I'd lean more on the latter though.
James said on 3/Jun/16
Caine was 6'1.5" at his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/16
Michael Caine: 187-188cm
Sean Connery: 188-189cm
jervis said on 1/May/16
Funny Ive just seen a photo of him standing next to Sidney Poitier who is listed as 6ft2.5,and Poitier looks about 1.5 inches taller than Caine.
Tom said on 17/Apr/16
Connery was 6'2".
184-182 said on 10/Apr/16
Easily taller than Nicholas Cage in The Weather Man. I guessed he was in the 6'1-6'1.5 range in that movie so 6'1 seems fair today
Rory said on 10/Apr/16
Hes lost just an inch i think, at most 1.5 inches which is good going for an 83 yr old. So the smoking James obviously didn't do him any harm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/16
It'd make him the same height as Connery
James said on 9/Apr/16
No, 189 would make him taller than Sean Connery.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/16
189cm early morning peak.
James said on 7/Apr/16
Caine was 6'1.5" at his peak, but because he smoked so much he lost an inch over the years and is now closer to six foot.
Idk said on 31/Mar/16
Definitely taller than bale and pretty close in height to Bratt in miss congeniality. I'd bet 189 peak and 185-186 now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Mar/16
He still looks comfortably over 6ft today though
Eston B Havbin said on 8/Mar/16
I opened the door to him a couple of years ago (I'm tangentially involved in the film industry) and he is one very tall pensioner. I'm over 6'1" and he was at least my height even as recently as two years ago.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/16
Rob, maybe Caine is another for the 6ft1¾ pile?


That might potentially put Connery at his allegedly measured 6ft2⅜ because he did edge him in The Man Who Would Be King wearing just sandels while Caine was in boots...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/16
I'd with B peak then. He might have dipped slightly under it in the late evening.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Feb/16
Rob, which range is most likely at peak?

A) 190cm/188cm
B) 189.5cm/187.5cm
C) 189cm/187cm
D) 188.5cm/186.5cm
E) 188cm/186cm
Editor Rob: Caine peak I'm still open to the chance he wasn't quite 6ft 2. I wouldn't have placed him as a stick-on six two guy.
Rory said on 21/Feb/16
Evening low heights...Caine-187.5..Connery-188..Lazenby-186.5..Moore-186.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jan/16
Michael Caine: 6ft1¾(187.4cm)
Sean Connery: 6ft2¼(188.6cm)
James B said on 26/Nov/15
6ft2 looked believeable in Alfie
Z187 said on 21/Nov/15
Barely taller (if not shorter) than bale, Nolan and dicaprio.. Can't believe he was ever 188 on this evidence.
grizz said on 2/Oct/15
Jwwjr.,I think they downplayed his height a bit. As a 6'1.5 guy at his prime,he could be classified both 6'1 and 6'2 (former extremely rarely,though).
jwwjr. said on 29/Sep/15
In his autobiography, it shows a photo of one of his early head shots and description .it says hisname and height 6ft.1 in
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
I think 6ft2 is still acceptable. There's just a good chance he dipped a little below it at the end of the day. 6ft1 flat is low for his peak.
grizz said on 12/Aug/15
In Bewitched (2004 movie) he really held its own next to cast that included then-6'3 Ferrell and 5'10.5 Kidman. I bet my cheese sandwich he was strong 6'1 back then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/15
Autographs aren't as valuable these days as photos
James B said on 5/Aug/15
Rob was your last comment to rampage a dig at Glenn especially in the last paragraph?
[Editor Rob: James, it's a general observation. With the rise of sites like facebook, twitter and in particular Instagram, many people are thinking of themselves in terms of followers, popularity etc.

The autograph to such people might not be worth as much as a Selfie with Tom Cruise or whoever. Their currency is likes, followers, improving their own self-worth etc.

Chase Witherspoon said on 3/Aug/15
In one of his autos he mentions being "around six-foot" about the time he enlisted, sort of implies to me an inch or so either way, but not 6'2".... 186cm would be my shout..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/15
A lot of the younger actors are totally infatuated with themselves and think they're god's gift. It's so clear to me that some of them are in it for the money and the fame. Others...they're anger with the media intruding their privacy is understandable. From the moment they step out the door of their homes to the moment they step back in, they get swept up by an ocean of cameras. It gets nauseating after awhile and some just snap. Alec Baldwin is a prime example.
[Editor Rob: when you go to a shopping mall and people from say a Utility or Credit card company tries to stop and get you to sign up for something...for a well-known actor, in public that's what it probably feels like a lot of the time. You can develop a thick skin and really ignore most of it, but many do react, naturally of course...

Unfortunately that is part of the package of becoming quite famous. If it's not the paparazzi, it's the professional autograph hounds and in the last decade the rise of 'selfie hounds'.

James B said on 22/Jul/15
Yeah rob a lot of actors think there larger than life
James B said on 21/Jul/15
Rob I don't think Caine is the nicest of actors is he in real life judging by stories of his fierce temper on set and seeing him in interviews. Not a man you would want to upset and just by him giving you that 'look' you don't want to cross the line with him.

Seeing him play Alfred you'd think he was the sweetest man in the world. Leslie Grantham said actors are the worst people in the world and indeed they are paid to deceive us.
[Editor Rob: sometimes with films maybe it is best not knowing about personal lives of actors.

I don't envy though, the personal intrusion that actors have to endure. I can understand the nature of the business, the people involved, the 'yes men' and adulation. Over time actors can let it 'get to their heads' and it changes them, sometimes for the worse, but maybe in a lot of cases for the better; they realise the influence they have and use it for doing great things.]
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jun/15
In Funeral in Berlin he's about two inches shorter than Paul Hubschmid who was listed at 6 ft 4.

Danimal says on 21/Jan/15
There are scenes in Interstellar where he look shorter than 5'11 3/4" Matthew McConaughey. He us 81 years old Rob. The average man will have lost 2" by then. I think he's max 6'0", but can look 5'11" these days. 6'1" is definitely out of the question.

Are you joking?!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/15
Rob, who do you think was taller peak Connery or Caine?
[Editor Rob: can be hard to tell in their film together, depending on angles, either could look at times an edge.]

he was 2 inches taller than steve martin with a footwear advantage. he was never taller than 6'1.

I would say he was a weak 6'2" peak and probably more 184 cm today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/14
@Arch: That scene in Dr. No where Jack Lord frisks Connery...easily 1-2in in Connery's favour.
Mike said on 7/Dec/14
Him and Connery could look close in height but I think its clear Connery was more of a 188 guy than Caine.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/14
I can play Alfie on the guitar in a jazz style, in fact it's one of my favourite songs to play. I nicked some of the chords from Burt Bacharach LOL!!
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/14
Rob can you add a photo from Alfie/Get Carter days?
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/14
Yeah I think you're right Rampage it was a tough call really but both around that 6 ft 2 mark. Connery in some scenes in Goldfinger and Dr. No in particular yeah he could seem a 189-90 guy at times. Walking down the hotel corridor in Goldfinger and Dr. No (with Ursula) he could look near 6 ft 3, but he was a good 2 inches shorter than 6'4" Rik van Nutter in Thunderball and didn't seem that much taller than Jack Lord in Dr. No really.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/14
Arch, I'd go w/h Connery since he was bald and was in sandals while Caine was in military boots. But then again one could argue 187cm for the latter's peak. They were probably both around the 6ft2 mark in all honesty give or take.If were gonna be precise, looking at other films all evidence points towards 6ft1½-2 or "weak" 6ft2 for Caine (he could look just 6ft1 at times also). I'd go more in the opposite direction for Connery and guess anywhere between 6ft2-2½ or "strong" 6ft2 for his peak since he could pull off looking 6ft3 in early Bond and was considerably taller than other legit 6ft1 men (Gert Frobe, Jack Lord and even a young Kevin Costner later on)
Arch Stanton said on 21/Nov/14
I can't decide who edged who in The Man Who Would Be King. Just when you think Caine edged him out Connery could seem a bit taller. I think they were very close.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/14
His role in Inception is very minor.But Educating Rita should definitely be in there (he was nominated for best actor that year)
Sam said on 6/Nov/14
Could you beef up his credits? "best known for roles in films like Zulu, The Ipcress File, Alfie, The Italian Job, Sleuth, The Man Who Would Be King, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Cidar House Rules, The Prestige and Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight series".

I preferred The Quiet American to Cidar House Rules but he won an Oscar for the latter so I deferred. Also tough to leave off Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, A Bridge Too Far, Dressed to Kill, Educating Rita, Mona Lisa, Little Voice, Quills, Children of Men, Inception and on and on! Despite slumming in a bit of dreck here and there, Caine truly has had a career to be proud of.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Oct/14
The 6ft1¾ could be a better fit but I wouldn't go lower than 6ft1½ though. He's still 6ft1 today and agree he's hasn't lost as much height as Connery through the years.
mike said on 9/Oct/14
If you're gonna have Connery 6ft 2 flat 6ft 1.5 will be spot on for Caine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
A weak 6ft2 might be more plausible for his peak
mike said on 19/Aug/14
Rob, i think you should downgrade his peak to atleast 6ft1.75in 187 cm he didn't look a full 6ft 2next to Connery downgrade Rob?
mike said on 18/Aug/14
Michael Caine's height is 6ft 0.75in (185 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 1.75in (187 cm)

At peak height I would give Michael Caine 187cm but today I think he is a strong 6'0 or 184cm.

Six-one in his younger days.

Just over six feet today.

It's amazing to see some of these actors in person because hardly any are the height they claim.

Almost every actor I've seen in the flesh was shorter than their bio claimed.

There were a handful,of exceptions.

John Wayne was definitely six-four.

Rock Hudson was six-five.

Steve McQueen was close to, if not five-ten.

George Segal was five-eleven as he claims.

cole said on 11/Jan/14
I think 187-188 cm range at peak, he can look more 184-185 cm today.
Sam said on 9/Jan/14
Caine looked not much more than 6'1" in Hannah and Her Sisters, as both Max Von Sydow and Daniel Stern seemed several inches taller (close to 3 than 2 in)...on the other hand, in almost all of his early British movies he seems to tower over others like an easily 6'2" guy. Connery and Caine are similar, though I think Connery might a slightly stronger 6'2" than Caine is based on the comparison.

'Britt Ekland's nudity', lol, it was a body double, Britt moaned because she herself was reed slim but the body double had a rounded bottom
Arch Stanton said on 28/Dec/13
Thanks. I really thought Caine looked 6'2" range in Get Carter. Although the camera angle in a lot of scenes was looking up which made him look even taller. Of course none of males like films like Get Carter and The Wicker Man because of Britt Ekland's nudity, such a put off ;-]. The Italian Job is on TV later, haven't seen the original for quite a few years...
Arch Stanton said on 27/Dec/13
Rob can you add Alfie and The Ipcress File?
Arch Stanton said on 27/Dec/13
Really does look about 6'2" in Get Carter.
Lenad is sexy said on 24/Dec/13
Good point rampage. I still think for the most part connery didn't seem over 6'2 but very close to it nevertheless. Caine on the other hand, while tall looked more in the 6'1 range to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/13
Connery could very well have cleared 6ft2 in his 20s and 30s, Lenad. Watch any of his Bond movies or even The Rock and you'll know what I mean. Caine might've been 6ft2, but there's a good chance he was more 6ft1.5-6ft1.75.
Lenad is sexy said on 22/Dec/13
he looked the same if not marginally shorter than sean connery who I doubt was over 6'2. 186-187 for caine
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Nov/13
Actually, 6ft1.75in/187cm is equally possible for his peak. He looked more weak 6ft2 range in Get Carter, Sleuth and the Italian Job.

Connery was definitely the stronger 6ft2 guy in The Man Who Would Be King.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Oct/13
Rob why haven't you listed Alfie and The Ipcress File, he was nominated for an Oscar for Alfie and a BAFTA for Ipcress, they're among his signature roles I think, certainly iconic in British cinema. Looks a full 6'2" in the Ipcress File. He looks about 3 inches taller than Guy Doleman who you might remember in the clinic as "Count Lippe" in Bond's Thunderball opposite Sean Connery. He was about 5 ft 11. Nigel Green looks 4 inches taller than Doleman in Ipcress and about an inch on Caine. He was listed at 6'4", I guessed him at 6'3" which would seem more likely.
NJP said on 6/Oct/13
Seen him regularly on oxford street and stood next to him in the queue in HMV. Seemed a strong 6ft so 6ft1 standing to attention is probably correct.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jul/13
I think he looked 6ft2 range right up until the 90s. In Batman Begins and Dark Knight looked a bit shorter than Morgan Freeman but easily taller than Bale.

188cm peak, 186cm now
Sam said on 12/Jul/13
He might have had a mid-day peak of 187 cm but anything less seems unlikely to me.

joe joe said on 6/Dec/12
To be fair Rob I think He must have been six two because when I met him a year or so ago we were eye to eye and he seemed a good 6'1 so common sense would say that taking into account height loss he would have been minimum 6'2 in his younger day. Maybe the army measured him at night and he came out as 187 lol. But he is very tall for an older guy and has quiet good posture.
joe joe said on 19/Nov/12
Just have to say it again. read his official biography again yesterday and it definitley has his height at the age of 22 on his army and acting records as 6'1 I dont think cain was ever 6'2. I have met him at at an old age he still seems 6'1 to me to it is feeseble that he was 6'2 and lost some height but i dont see why he or his agents would say he was 6'1 if he was 6'2. plus at 22 for boys you are in your last year of growth.
[Editor Rob: he still thinks he's six two, he mentioned it in that book aswell.]

by the way rob.

thebad7 said on 19/Oct/11
NO. 6'2". He was always a long-limbed guy, but his heavy build is deceptive and sometimes makes him look shorter than what he is. 6'2" is correct for him--like his friend Sean Connery, he hits 6'3" in shoes. Even today he looks close to 6'2"--he hasn't lost much.

"Looks 6'0" just like Jim Carrey?" What are you smoking? He has 2" on Carrey, FFS!

@Gus: They're onstage, they're moving around a bit, but I think that both Connery and Caine are both minimum 6'2" at this event in '89--add in the dress shoes and both are 6'3" onstage. Both men have kept most of their height; in recent photos they still look to be minimum 6'1" in older age, and still close to 6'2".

all you stupid men who obviously have massive complexes about your height need to get over the fact that he's 6ft 2, which means he's tall. he's not 5ft 9. he's not 4ft 11. he's taller than 6ft, get over it, it doesnt make that much difference

Is it still a possibility that Caine is 186cm, Rob?
thebad7 said on 1/Jul/11
A true legend--the original GET CARTER immortalized him. Just watched him in a low-key--albeit gritty & brutal--film from 2010 titled HARRY BROWN. Although he was 77 at the time, he still looks to have maintained that height. He's at least 6'1" today, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was still hitting the 6'2" mark, at least in the morning hours. He was a tall man when he was young, and now in older age, he's still tall. Great actor.

Actually after watching The Italian Job and Alfie I think 6"2(188cm) is sensible for his peak...
even in the 90s he still looked that tall...beside 6"0(183cm) Christian Bale he looks near 6"2 aswell.

Today he still looks a little over 6"1

Mister_Lennon said on 2/Jan/11
In sweet liberty, Alda was a little bit tallere than Caine, almost the same. Same that Connery with Caine. So,i think that both Alda and Connery are true 6'2 footers and Caine was close to 6'2 at peak, but not a true 6'2. Like a strong 6'1.
Shadow2 said on 2/Jan/11
Just a dumb question everyone, but if Sean Connery is now agreed on this site to have been 6'2" peak, and in 1975's "The Man who would be King" he was (consistently) slightly taller than Caine, then how is it that Caine can also be 6'2"?? Was Caine 6'1.5"?, or 6'1"?. In 1986's "Sweet Liberty", Caine is in scenes with legit 6'2" Alan Alda, so what height does Caine seem to be there, compared to Alda?

Hi , Tubbs.
I saw the prestige the other day and Caine looked tall next to Hugh Jackamn who is a legit 1`89.
In the John Wayne page I posted this link
Click Here
You can see Caine next to John Wayne, James Stewart and other tall actors. Caine looks clearly shorter. That can help to forget any idea of Caine being 1`90. Caine was in his heyday around 1`87
tubbs said on 11/Oct/07
People are forgetting that most men in their mid 70's have a stoop, it is quite obvious with Caine. Even with the stoop he looks 6'1+, this is evident in The Prestige opposite Jackman at 6'2.5", and 6ft Bale. In a couple of shots where Caine straightens up he is virtually the same as Jackman, with no more than half an inch between them.
Also on the extras of Zulu, James Booth commented that Caine was very tall, this coming from a 6'2" guy himself, if Caine was 6'1", I doubt that Booth would say that he was very tall. Was a genuine 6'2", and I think there is a good chance he still is.

Then what is up with that pic of Owen and Caine I posted below. According to Owens pic with glenn, and the two of them in that pic, Caine should look taller than he does here

[Editor Rob: Here. In both cases caine/owen had slight down tilt with glenn of their head, you can see that in the pic above. This does make difference look a bit less as obviously if a celeb was raising eyeline its gonna make it look a bit more. Caine is slightly closer than glenn, maybe Micahel has a slight lean that evens out the 2/5ths or so inch he is gaining with closeness.]

It is a pity Frank2 doensn´t post anymore. He made interesting comments. But he was a little bit haughty; he had a hard time accepting other people`s point of view. Anyway, take care, Frank2, I will miss your contribution to the site.
Refering to Caine, I stick to 1`87 in his youth and 1`85 nowadays
Mikex. said on 17/Nov/06
I was never to sure about Frank2 myself, tubbs. While his statements sometimes seemed a bit far fetched he also appeared to have a lot of insider knowledge about the stars. Was he for real, I don't know. As for Caine he was certainly a tall man. At least 6'1'' and maybe 6'2'' as he himself states. I've seen a photo of him in a John Wayne book where there a number of stars such as Clint Eastwood, Rock Hudson, Lee Marvin and of course Wayne himself. Caine looks a fair bit shorter than Wayne, Eastwood and Hudson all of whom were 6'4'' and Hudson maybe even taller. He also appears shorter than 6'2'' Lee Marvin in the photo although it is hard to be sure as they are not standing next to each other. Maybe Frank2 was right about Caine being 6'1'' afterall.

Brett, is right, in the early 90s Caine did still look a legitimate 6 ft 2.
The last 5 years it seems that Caine has losed some height.
Frank2 said on 26/Apr/06
Back when I worked on Get Carter (the original, not the crappy remake) I asked the fellow who was working on it with me who had been on the set how tall Caine was and he said 6'1". Then I read it in several publications. In fact I remember Caine himself saying in some interview that when he worked with Anthony Quinn who he had thought of as being at least 6'3" he was quite surprised to discover that Quinn was slightly shorter than him and Caine stated he was about 6'1". Then within the last few years I've started seeing Caine listed as being 6'2". Maybe in twenty more years he'll be listed at 6'4" and then a new batch of goofballs with more time on their hands than they should have like all of us will be arguing that he was just 6'2".

I can tell you that when he did Dirty Rotten Scoundrels he was only an inch to an inch and a half taller than 5'11" Steve Martin who I've met and can confirm his height without reservation. We were eye-to-eye the same height.
Brett said on 25/Apr/06
In that movie with him and Steven Segal, He really doesnt seem more then 1.5 - 2inches max shorter then Segal, although he has visibly large heels on throughout the whole movie. Im sure he was 6'2" back in the day
Gonzalo said on 30/Mar/06
Caine always looks tall in his movies. I guess he was around 1`87 when he was young and I think he hasn`t shrunk much. He must be 1`85 nowadays.

Connery was for sure never above 6'2.

Wich doctor in the world is gonna measure a guy with shoes on? And it's strange that they measure the other guys without shoes, but Connery with shoes, especialy for such important contest. And it's funny that Connery looks 2 inches taller than a guy who is at least 6 ft.

hmmmm, are you serious?
Tubbs said on 8/Dec/05

Mario Nariano said on 7/Dec/05
Connery was measured at 6 ft 2.5, so face it, you can´t negate this.
Connery looks old in the most recent pics but he is still over 6 ft 1, probably 6 ft 1.5

And I agree with Brett that Caine nowedays for sure not under the 6 ft 1 mark.
Brett said on 7/Dec/05
He cant be less then 6'1", he is taller then Chris Bale by over an inch, its damn obvious that hes 6'1" plus
Mario Nariano said on 5/Dec/05
The camera is at Caine's favor in some scenes and also in some scenes it's at Connerys favor. Still there are some scenes wich are good, and wich Connery is slighty taller than Caine and both are standing next to each other.

a 6 ft height for Connery is funny..
Tubbs said on 2/Dec/05
Frank, i watched The Man Who Would be King recently, and Connery is between 1/2 to 1 inch taller than Caine. The only scenes where Caine appears taller is where Connery is wearing very thin soled sandals, and Michael is in army boots. Theres no denying Michael was 6'2" peak height, it just leads me to beleive that Sean was the 6'2.5 possibly 6'3" that he's been listed as over the years.
Mario Nariano said on 29/Sep/05
I think that Caine rounded himself up when he was young. I watched last night The Man who would be a king and he looks 2/3 cm shorter than Sean Connery who was at that time 189 cm! So I say 187 cm was probably is peak height.
mcfan said on 22/Sep/05
Caine doesn't look 6'2 anymore, but he's still tall at 6'1.
fukymonk said on 27/Jun/05
IN Batman Man Begins, he was definately taller than Christian Bale by 1 or two inches. Bale is listed here as 6foot.
JJ said on 8/Jun/05
Yes, at his peak Caine was 6'2" - an inch shorter than his good buddy Sean Connery as you can see in their great film "The Man Who Would Be King". Interestingly though, Michael only seems to have lost an inch in his old age compared to Sean who's lost two. So they're both now the same height at 6'1".
Lmeister said on 3/May/05
...if Ewan would really be 5'10'' or 5'11'' Michael wouldn't have said him in the list of short guys...It really doesn't make any sence that he'd be more than 5'9'' same goes for Colin Farrell...
CelebHeights Editor said on 3/May/05
This is an old quote from the WENN by Michael Caine: "I think Ewan McGregor, Stephen Dorff, Joaquin Phoenix, Ryan Phillippe and Tobey Maguire are wonderful actors. There are many other fine actors in Hollywood. But... I've never seen a tall one. It seems to me that there's a generation of very talented small people... maybe they are more ambitious because they are more angry because they are short"
Anonymous said on 26/Apr/05
Dunno
In most pics of the 70 and also in the movie The man who would be a king, he looked like an inch smaller than Connery, but maybe was Connery 6'3 as some poeple say.
