Yeah rob, his current height need a downgrade...
He looked weakly 2in/5 cm taller than 5ft9/175 cm Tom Hardy...5ft11/180 cm is a good estimate for him now
dmeyer says on 19/Jan/14
0.5-1in loss at 72 he did well
[Editor Rob: he does look a lot near 5ft 11 now.]

Rob, today i measured myself with shoes on. It's the first one measurement since 3 months.
I had the Nike blazer and i was 186,5 cm, so 1,2 cm taller than my barefeet height.
I wore these shoes since one year so it's possible that the heels became tiny?
I remember that Nike blazer gave around 0,6 inche...
[Editor Rob: they could have lost 2-3mm, but I don't know about losing more]

Worked with him in 1999 on a film set, day after day, and he was a bit shorter than I expected.
Barely 6 foot, and closer to 5'11". But a great guy!

To me, he and Robert Mitchum (in his 70s) looked of similar stature in Scorsese's brilliant Cape Fear remake. I'd say Nolte was 6ft- 6ft 0.25 peak.

He can seem 6'1" easily on screen back in the 70s to 90s, but Nolte is one of the most honest men in Hollywood per his height quote. At times I think he's too limited as an actor (one mood: growly), but not many actors would admit to being shorter than their perceived as.

"Peak height was 6ft 0.5in (184cm)"

Alright, I admitted to the boots. But many actors will say "6 feet" to sort of generalise how tall they are roughly. It can account for 1-2in.

Couldn't be any shorter than 6ft, he had a clear 3 inches on 5ft 9inch Eddie Murphy in 48hrs.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 17/Nov/13
I think he might have peaked at 6ft 0.25in (184 cm). Nowadays, barely 182.
Maio says on 15/Nov/13
Looked 6-feet tall in 48 hrs next to a 5-feet-9 Eddie Murphy.
I think he lost much from his peak 6-feet tall...
Recently he looked shorter than a 5ft10.5in Bruce Willis, however i think that today, standing straight, he could reach 5-feet-11 tall, or something close to it.
Arch Stanton says on 10/Nov/13
Rob, I just noticed he's easily an inch shorter than an ancient Bob Mitchum in Cape Fear. Looks almost 2 inches actually. I'd say it is pretty much impossible that Mitchum was 185 and him 183. If Mitchum was still peak height in 1991 the most Nolte looks in comparison is 180.
Arch Stanton says on 10/Nov/13
Looks about 6 ft in Cape Fear.
Maio says on 18/Jul/13
i belive it's time to downgrade his current height: He's 5 ft 11 in today, no doubt about that...
look him with a legit 5 ft 10.75 in Aaron Eckhart and 5 ft 10 in Josh Brolin:

"Nick Nolte's height is 5 ft 11 in (180 cm)
Peak height was 6 ft 0 in (183 cm)"

At his age, 72, if you loose 1 inche you're lucky, and i think during these days he never looked over 180 cm.
cole says on 15/Jul/13
He's not much over 5'11 today, he has definitely lost a good chunk of height over the years. He seemed the same height as Joel Edgerton in Warrior.
Edgar says on 26/Jun/13
i don't know if Willis wore lifts, but in that pic he's a good in taller than Nick... Click Here
I think they're both 5-11 today...
Maio says on 15/Jun/13
In 48 hrs he seems very tall but he wore lifts...i think in that movie his Boots gave him 2 in/5 cm, so he was 6ft2in...he looks 3 in/7,5 cm taller than a legit 5ft9 eddie Murphy: 6 feet 0 inche at his peak!
Today he looks no more than 5 ft 11 in.
Knowitall says on 13/May/13
For what it's worth, Nolte wore lifts in Mulholland Falls.
Leung says on 5/Feb/13
yeah in Gangster Squad looked 182cm so current height seems accurate, but Peak height needs reconsideration because Nolte in his prime looked 6'1".
Ajax says on 2/Feb/13
The most one can be when they claim a height is 1/2" more than what they say. So at the most he was 6'0.5".
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 2/Feb/13
Looking like he's lost height for sure in 'Gangster Squad'. 5f11.25 today and 6ft- 6f0.25 (183/184 cm) peak.
berta says on 28/Jan/13
is 184 possible peak? I always thought he was in the 185 range.
Silent d says on 18/Jan/13
His sister is taller than him. That is shocking. She is gigantic. 182cm. He is an imposing figure.
roadcase says on 7/Dec/12
i met nick backstage at a show one time, and I can't believe that he is anything over 5'8"!

Very surprising!
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m says on 17/Oct/12
Might've peaked near 6f0.25 (183 -- 183.5 cm). Today: 5 ft 11.5 (1.82 m).
jen says on 22/Sep/12
Definite 6'1" at peak, possibly even slightly taller maybe he is a bit shorter now
Miiiiiiighty_l- says on 17/Sep/12
I don't know why I always thought Nick was 6'2ish and saw him list at that height.
Just noticed he is way shorter while watching " The thin red line" where he is like two inches smaller than Travolta ( who must be in his trademark cowboy boots )
mike 6 feet out of bed says on 1/Aug/12
Prime deffinitely a strong 6 footer!
sailorjupiter says on 22/Jan/12
recently i saw the movie 'warrior' with T.Hardy, J.Edgerton, J.Morrison 'nd Nick.
Well, i think he's tall precisely like Joel Edgerton (5'11). I don't know how tall he was during his youth, but i think he's 5'11 now:

T.Hardy: 5'9.25
J.Morrison: ?
N.Nolte: 5'11
J.Edgerton: 5'11
