I met Richard Gere in Vancouver back in the 90's. I was expecting him to be about 5'11". When I met him I was amazed how much height I had in him. ( I am about 6' 3/4".) the best I ever measured was about 6'1".

His posture was awful. I had to lean over to shake his hand. Nice guy though. Very pleasant.
tk said on 9/Jun/15
I don't remember if I posted this one before. I was watching Pretty Woman again the other day and I noticed a scene where him and Julia Roberts are standing outside the elevator. He is in socks, she's in flats and there seems to be a 3 inch difference between them. He definitely was 5'10'' at the time.
Markus from Italy said on 13/Mar/15
Richard Gere is a weird case... I mean: his former wife Cindy Crowford is 179 cm and he was shorter than her. Many sites list him at 172 cm, some others even 169 cm. He's clearly a lift wearer but it might be ridiculous to claim he wears huge lifts so I can buy 172 cm, with lifts on he can reach 179 cm or get close to it. Bear in mind that also simple boots (and he wears them often) can give you up to 4/5 cm in height. I daily wear Lowa boots, since I play airsoft, and they make me reach 176/177 cm ...
CDS said on 10/Mar/15
This estimate seems right to me, but this guy sure is a sloucher. Whoopi Goldberg, on a sitcom, once described him as "tall and gorgeous". I dunno about that first part. LOL. But he does give that impression on screen in spite of the fact it's clear he's more of average height by his co-stars in comparison. I might go as low as peak height 5'9.5" and 5'8.5-5'9" today; hard to say again with that bad posture...
Ian from Auckland said on 8/Mar/15
A little over 10 years ago I literally bumped into Richard Gere in Santa Monica (it was my fault). Once I realised who he was, I had a great opportunity to assess his height. I'm 177cm, he seemed just a little taller than me (178, maybe 179cm). So all of these current estimates seem pretty much right on the money.
Jesse Stone said on 25/Dec/14
A look at him next to 179 Topher Grace in "The Double". My dad is about the same age as Gere and was 177 - 178 cm at his prime. Now he is about 5'9. That's what Gere would be.

Good listing, has the average guy look all the time. Have never seen him look tall or short in anything or on photo.
Realist said on 23/Nov/14
Strong 5'8" today. Peak 5'9.5. Similar to the Michael Douglas listing. Rob downgrade needed.
Jesse Stone said on 12/Oct/14
I think of 176-177cm as his peak, and now in the mid 60's it's not uncommon to loose height. Look at him next to Wesley Snipes (5'9). They seem to be the same height. Snipes could be slightly taller...he is younger than Gere.

But no matter what height he is, he is one of the greatest actors I know!!
Guy said on 4/Aug/14
He looks like a 184 guy but when you ser him with other people he look like 178
dave said on 3/Aug/14
I reckon 5-8 to 5-9 tops
Jesse Stone said on 23/Jul/14
@Editor Rob: What do you say to the statement of the telegraph interviewer above: "Perhaps 5ft 9in." Was that a newer or an older interview ? Thanks!
[Editor Rob: more recent, it's just the impression Gere left the interviewer, that of a 5ft 9 man.]
Guy said on 20/Jul/14
Thats not necessarily true @ Meltdown
littlesue said on 31/May/14
He could have only lost half inch at 64, maybe in another 10 years an inch or two?
Meltdown said on 30/May/14
Richard Gere is 64 and only lost 1/2 inch? I think not. If his peak height was 5'10", he's got to be under 5'9" by now.
Ed Kline said on 19/May/14
He was taller than his first wife (Cindy Crawford) by a solid inch, maybe more, back in the early to mid 90's, when he was already 40+ years old. She was consistently billed at 5'9 1/2, and she's 5'9 on this site. No way Gere was under 5'10 peak height, and he might have nudged 5'11 morning height when he was younger.
Jesse Stone said on 16/Apr/14
In most movies he looks about 176cm.(Pretty Woman, Mothman Prophecies, Arbitrage,...) I don't think he ever was 5'11. Peak 5'10 !!
James B said on 17/Mar/14
He looked 5'9 range in pretty woman
Arch Stanton said on 6/Feb/14
Assuming Gere was still 5ft 10 in 1998/9 when Runaway Bride was made, there is a scene near the end where Richard and Hector are stood side by side in the church and Gere is slightly taller. 176-77cm peak for Hector would be a good shout if you're interested in listing him, although he's the same age as Finney and not far off 80 now so might be nearer 5 ft 8 today.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Feb/14
Elizondo with Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 6/Feb/14
Rob any chance you could add Héctor Elizondo? You remember the charming hotelier in Pretty Woman and the guy in Runaway Bride? He's also known for his TV roles in Chicago Hope and Last Man Standing. He was eye to eye with Gere in Runaway Bridge, maybe a shade shorter. 5'9.5" might be a good shout. I think he's worth adding.
Aaron said on 25/Sep/13
I'd say 5'9.5" in his prime. Here he is with David Keith in An Officer and a Gentleman:
Click Here

Around a 3 inch difference - probably more as Keith is leaning.

Here's another from the film with Louis Gossett Jr, listed at 6'3" in his prime. Looks to be about a 5 inch difference:

Here's one more recent, taken in 2004 still that 5 inch difference:

Silent d said on 17/Sep/13
5 foot 9. He was taller in his prime.
Mac said on 14/Aug/13
To me he always looked a bit more than 5'9" but nothing over 5'10" so this listing seems pretty accurate. After all he's perfectly average in height.
hurricane brat said on 25/Jun/13
anyone see him on the graham norton show? i always thought he was a normal-ish guy but he came across as a huge twat!
jimmy said on 1/May/13
i saw him at starbucks the other day and he was wearing scandals. so 5'9 definitely.
paul said on 7/Apr/13
I' m italian from milan. The tall actor is edoardo costa and he is 6.3. The small showman is maurizio costanzo and he is 5.3. I think that gere is now 5.9 and at peak 5.10.
Spock said on 25/Mar/13
Gere shares many scenes close to 5.3 Bai Ling, both wearing shoes. Her heels apparently a bit higher than his, perhaps an inch. According to these data, and by the way he towers her (four inches at least), he should be around 5.8 rather than 5.7, and maybe even 5.9.
Woody said on 14/Mar/13
Gere was 5'6.5" at his peak I'd say and perhaps 5'5" now. He wears elevator shoes that give him 3-4". I used to see him at Elaine's back in the 80's
Dom said on 1/Mar/13
@ Phamus. People at 6'2 are terrible at gauging heights because to them someone 5'9 looks 5'7. Basically tall people are clueless unless someone is in their height range. Noway is Gere 5'7. lol
Lo sgozzatore said on 9/Dec/12
Rob, how tall is the other guy? Click Here
He's an italian actor... I'm not sure but i found 187 long time ago. On his site he's listed at 6'2. One thing is sure, he was shorter than a guy who is around 189-190!
[Editor Rob: near 6ft 2 is quite possible]
Arch Stanton said on 1/Dec/12
I'd agree completely with this, but look at Pattinson in comparison, is he really 6'0.5"?? Looks an inch or so too high to me?

rob in the double he was shorter then 5 foot 10 gere is it possible he is 5 foot 9 in shoes and 5 foot 8 barefoot
Phil said on 27/Oct/12
Can't see him being more than 5'7", especially when you see him beside 6' tall actor David Keith in "An Officer and a Gentleman". He's A-L-O-T shorter than Keith
LG69 said on 7/Oct/12
Has always looked 5'9" to me.
Ronan said on 26/Sep/12
Met him in the winter of 2011 when he was giving a speech. He was exactly my height (176cm, 5"9), pretty thin (so looks taller) and in great shape.

He most def is not shorter than 175cm or taller than 177cm.
ada said on 18/Sep/12
Looked about an 1-1.5 shorter than Jay Leno(120917) => 5 foot 9.5. Footwear seemed to give equal boost.
bodwaya said on 8/Sep/12
in double was an inch shorter then 5 foot 10 grace. 5 foot 9
Phamus said on 5/Sep/12
I have met Mr. Gere at the Oprah Show a few years ago and we shook hands and he gave me a look - what was I doing there. He was a small guy 5'7" would be kind,very small hands. Nice looking fellow and a very nice person. I'm 6'2" and I felt like I towered over him but height means nothing and you need to be smaller for the movies. Hollywood prefers couples to look into each other's eyes.
Mark70 said on 2/Sep/12
Hi Rob,i'm a italian fan of your beautiful site.excuse me for my scarce english.I'm sure for Richard Gere's height is 176 centimetres, because looking with attention our photo with old editor Glenn (169 centimetres),the difference between them is at the most 7 centimetres.For me Gere is never been 178 centimetres,this height is exaggerated.think well Rob.Thank You for your attention Goodbye Mark70
shortie said on 7/Aug/12
saw him yesterday ... he's not more than 5'7", my height, ... we were eye to eye. I was surprised it was him given how short he is ... always thought he was taller. Those saying any taller are giving him credit for two inches of hair height ... which is very much thinning by the way. Very pleasant demeanor though. Fingernails manicured, tie tied perfectly. Funny, no one else around him recognized him. Heard they always filmed him to make him look taller than his leading woman ... now I know why!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/12
179cm peak, Rob?
[Editor Rob: not as convonced on that yet ]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 7/Jun/12
Rob, how much difference you see?
Click Here
The guy on the right is a famous italian presenter and he always look very very short! His fatness also contributes to make him look that short! I'd say max 5'4, but that's still a stretch! In this pic Richard Gere doesnt look so much taller as he should!
[Editor Rob: if he's losing an inch in height he could look near 6 inches taller I guess]
leonari said on 22/Jan/12
The man is 63 years old. He could have lost some height by now.
Adam Brennon said on 13/Oct/07
Height-wise, he's one of the most classically average men i've ever laid eyes on.
Daniel said on 12/Oct/07
Franco, you're right, I think the same for Gere. No more than 1.76cm barefoot at his peak
glenn said on 12/Oct/07
that was a long period of 20 years for gere.
OutBenchThis said on 12/Oct/07
Glenn it seems all the actors/celebrities you meet go through a period where they're tosses and then become more open to signing..weird.
glenn said on 12/Oct/07
irshgrl500-he is usually a dick and is very difficult photo to obtain.saw him a month before this and turned me down.still turned me down here until i persisted.he is nicer now.and posing more.would rather sign.there was a time both were scarce.
Franco said on 12/Oct/07
again look at the picture, pay attention also at this shoes heels,
looks 177-178cm there with shoes.

Click Here
Franco said on 12/Oct/07
he is a very nice gentleman and a good person Richard gere, im sure Glenn can testify on this ;)

in the picture he does look 178-179cm considering glenn is closer to the camera.

as such just as i said below about THE HOAX i was definetely right (close) when i said he looked 177-178cm in shoes. that put him below 178-179cm hence his true height is 176cm.

he should be downgraded to 176cm.
Valeri said on 11/Oct/07
Well from the angle I'd say 5'9.5 at least. probably 5'10 like Glenn estimated. He was a bit under Clooney,liek half an inch as well.that would make him 5'10
Valeri said on 11/Oct/07
What did he write there? To Glenn for... ? He seems nice from the picture. in harmony with the world,being a buddhist now and all.

Is it me, or do Richard Gere, Victor Garber and Richard Noble all look similar?
Lynn said on 10/Oct/07
More then 10 years ago here in Italy, a gossip newspaper reported Gere appeared 178 cm in boots.
Adam Brennon said on 10/Oct/07
I'm 5' 10" and I scarecly feel taller than my 5' 8" sister. In pictures the top of her head is at level with my eyebrows. It's not much of a gap.
derek said on 10/Oct/07
he seems to be leaning in the pic.... glenn what did he look to you here?
glenn said on 10/Oct/07
he is leaning in.seemed 5-10ish.
Viper said on 10/Oct/07
Hard to say here. I guess hes looking 5-9 in this pic. He looks very distinguished with grey hair.
dmeyer said on 10/Oct/07
defenetly 5'10 peak 1 or 2 cm less now
Aratirion said on 10/Oct/07
Looks 5.8,5? No, in the new pic with glenn, Gere is looking 5'10 at least. But, the angle is very weird, so I think just Glenn can tell us the best estimate.
Anonymous said on 10/Oct/07
I totally agree with you, Kevin.
Bad Radio said on 10/Oct/07
looks 5'9
irshgrl500 said on 10/Oct/07
Ok, maybe and just maybe he's 5'9". He looks 5'8.5" in this photo with Glenn. I have always liked Gere but also have heard he's not the nicest guy. Did you get to talk to him much, Glenn? What did you think?
Kevin Durant said on 10/Oct/07
Definitely looks like a legit 5'9" in this new picture. I watch some of his movies and he never give me the impression that he is a 5'10 guy.
Valeri said on 3/Oct/07
He was same or half inch under clooney. either Clooney is 5'10 now or Gere might be 5'10.5 still at 58. A very good pic in fact,where both close and with similar posture.
Marcelo C. said on 1/Oct/07
I watched several films starred by Richar Here, and I´d be disappointed if he were shorter than 5´10. I always had the impression he was nearly 5´11. Evidently, "lifts" are magic...... .
A friend said on 22/Sep/07
Glenn not sure where you get your info. Solved people, he is 5'10 1/2 has been for years! Did he magically lose inches inside? that is plain goofy. I have stood next to him many times and he is more then 2 inches taller then I am!
Daniel said on 17/Sep/07
Glenn saw him look 5'9'' because Gere is 5'9''. Viper is right about the shoes. Those who think the guy is 5'10'' or more, take a look at the difference between Gere and Lou Gossett Jr. in the movie "An Officer and a Gentleman"
Franco said on 14/Sep/07
Richard Gere was 177cm-178cm in his prime and today he is 175-176cmm he lost at least 2cm of height that's for sure.

from the latest movie THE HOAX, heres a picture, looks 177-178cm to me with shoes.

"he looked 5-11 to me 2 weeks ago on the way in to a party.on the way out he strangely looked friends noticed the weird change."

He changed shoes. Only thing I can come up with.
leonari said on 12/Sep/07
Daniel: you have no clue.
leonari said on 12/Sep/07
He is 5'10" to 5'10.5". Just like Clooney. There are very recent pics of them standing face to face and they are exactly the same height. I am pretty sure on Clooney now. 179 cm. Perfect Rob.

I know Richard and he is taller then what is being stated here. He is 5' 10 1/2". I am 5'7 " and he stood above me by a few inches, but I know for a fact his height is what I stated.
Daniel said on 10/Sep/07
Gere's peak height was 5'9 or 5'9.5'' maximum. He looks that tall in most of his pictures.
TJ said on 1/Aug/07
I saw him walking out of the Leicester Square Empire a few years ago at the conclusion of a film festival. Seemed around 5'10 to me.
Glenn said on 1/Aug/07
He usually looks 5-10.on rare occasion 5-9.once gave me the illusion of 6ft.
sam said on 30/Jul/07
how could he be 5'9, he's got that tall guy slouch thing and still looks taller than average height. somethin's night right, glenn, we need further varification on this one...
bam said on 30/Jul/07
he is 5'10, no shorter. When I saw this picture of him back when he was younger, I pegged him as a 6 footer.

sam said on 17/Jul/07
richard gere does slouch but lets be realistic. he's at least 5'10, he just looks above average height, too tall to be average.

About 5-8 on a good day,check him against Tom Cruise

5-9 is a possibilty.

I think hes 5-9.
David said on 28/Apr/07
Did anyone see him on the Daily Show? He didn't look that much taller than Jon Stewart!
RobertJ said on 18/Apr/07
When I saw him in an officer and a gentlemen, I pegged him for a 6 footer. He seems to have really good proportions but I can definitely buy 5'10''.
Ed said on 8/Mar/07
I just watched The Jackal and Gere looked considerably shorter next to Sidney Poitier. Now I was unaware Poitier was so tall, and after looking up his height and seeing 6ft2.5, I have no doubt. Gere at 5ft10 could make sense, since he looked to be about 5 inches shorter than Poitier.
misha said on 6/Mar/07
There is a phenomenon at work here I and quite a few others have pointed out - many big stars who claim one height now clearly reveal a lesser one when their earliest work is viewed. In "An Officer and a Gentleman" Richard Gere looked a solid 5'9" with military footwear but no taller - at least to me. And to me he has simply never looked 5'10" in any of his subsequent films. An in-person close-up sighting would be very desirable here. By the way, guys who really are a legit 5'10" never seem to be the target of "shorter rumors". This is because with a 1.5" footwear boost they are making a decent run at six feet, and certainly that's never going to look short anywhere, least of all on the screen with its unlimited capacity for height-augmenting angles. What I've found in many areas of life is that these rumors that circulate along the grapevine are very often true - certainly they can be very wrong - but much
more often than not, they turn out to be subsequently verifiable. While I'd agree that rumors about height might be suspect, there is a reason that they
got started (i.e., someone saw a star without his lifts and couldn't believe
their eyes - then they told some of their friends - you get the point).
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
Though,there are shorter rumors,I agree,he can look 5-10.on rare occassion,even more.
irshgrl500 said on 12/Jan/07
I think Richard Gere is 5'10". His wife Carey, a former Bond girl and fashion model, is 5'10". When he appears with Carey at formal events, she seems to be about 2" taller than him. I assume she's wearing about 2" heels for the evening wear occasions.
Mr Mayfair said on 27/Dec/06
I saw Mr Gere on a number of occasions in the nineties (business)and with us both wearing similar style shoes there was little in it height wise, I was 5.11, he 5.10 & 1/2. Cindy less - 5.9/5.10, slighty shorther than him.
Brad said on 8/Dec/06
5' 10" with Cindy, but, what phone books & tricks did they do to get Jennifer Lopez that tall by him?
Glenn said on 26/Sep/06
Alot of 5-8 rumors were going around with him.I couldve sworn he was 6ft once.I think he is a legit 5-10.
MHouillon said on 25/Sep/06
Yeah, 177cm fits him perfect. Just watching "First Knight". I remember him in "internal affairs", and he looked that beside 175-176cm Andy Garcia.
leonari said on 26/Aug/06
wow first time I have to agree with anonymous. unbelievable!
Anonymous said on 25/Aug/06
Richard Gere looks exactly 5'10''. Shorter (even if well proportioned) actors have clearly shorter looking arms and legs. TCruise is well proportioned but you can tell he has short arms, etc. Or even H Bogart. Gere looks a solid, consistent 5'10" in alI his movies.
Mango said on 20/Jul/06
In a 1980s political thiller called POWER, starring Gere, Hackman, and Washington, Gere and Denzel stand toe to toe and are exactly the same height. What's up with that?
kenneth pz said on 20/Apr/06
thats a part while show julia appear barefoot and standing next to gere in pretty women,she perfectly looks no more than 5''7(1.7m~1.71m)..
Frank2 said on 31/Mar/06
Julia is 5'6" and like so many celebs lies about her height. I've stood right next to her when she was in flat shoes and I towered over her. And just look how tall she appears in her films. So you people who still think Marilyn Monroe was half an inch shorter are just dreaming! Try applying some logic here.

Richard Gere is an inch shorter than me so he's 5'10".
Glenn said on 31/Mar/06
Saw her last month.first time since 1997.I was shocked that she looked 5-6.
Frank2 said on 30/Mar/06
Simple. Julia isn't 5'8".
Anonymous said on 29/Mar/06
so how can you have Julia R at 5'8". She's clearly 5'6" next to him. Weird.
Glenn said on 24/Mar/06
In person he can look 5-9.
larry said on 23/Mar/06
Richard Gere has looked 5'10" in everything he's done to my eyes. He doesn't seem to have an ego issue, so I agree with Frank2. 5'10" is on the mark for Mr. Gere.
Claire said on 19/Mar/06
My Dad saw and spoke briefly to Richard Gere in Prague and swears blind he was slightly shorter than him. My Dad is only 5'8.5" so it would seem to indicate that Richard Gere is around 5'8".
Clive said on 7/Mar/06
Indeed Rob 177cm seems to be his real height !
I think that as 177cm=5ft9.75, people prefer rouding off 5'10 !
Many of my friend do this to look taller.
Frank2 said on 2/Mar/06
Richard is five ten. Period! And he rarely if ever wears lifts. There! I said the dreaded word again!
nolifts81 said on 13/Feb/06
Richard Gere is in the 179-180 cm range. Look at the movie Internal affair where he is 1 inch taller than Andy Garcia. Andy Garcia is for Sure around the 5'10" because some years Ago he went in Italy in a television program for promoting a movie that he did with Andie MCDowell. In that occasion he weared very normal dress shoes,no room for accomodate lifts, and he was the same height of the italian Actor Giorgio Borghetti who is 177cm.
Jeff said on 28/Jan/06
After my observartions I am sure that he is just under 5'10". No doubt about that at all. However, good, bad or indifferently, that's clearly just under 5'10" wearing high quality, custom made and somewhat attractive ELEVATOR SHOES.
J.J.F said on 21/Jan/06
Glenn - you really think he's 5'9"?? I suppose he is one of those guys who just looks taller than than he really is... like David "I wish I was 6.2" Schimmer.
Pik said on 16/Jan/06
I checked the picture again. It looks like there really is a slight slope on the ground, putting Armani on highest level. I also think Armani's shoes have a little bigger heel than Gere's. So Armani may get extra 2 to 3 cm in his favour.
Pik said on 16/Jan/06
Something is wrong on that pic with Armani. I'm 5'10" (178 cm) barefoot. When I measured myself, I also made 5'7" (170 cm )mark on the wall.This mark shows, that a top of a person's head who is 170 cm would come to the top of my nose. I hope you understand what I mean. On that picture, where Gere and Armani are, it isn't so. Maybe Armani is 173, 174 cm, I don't know. But if he is 170 cm, Gere is nowhere near 178 cm. Rob what do you think ?

[Editor Rob: yeah, he maybe not quite 178cm. Its unclear if Hutton shrank anymore since her comment though, but armani does claim 170cm, maybe he looks a little under 178 ;)]
Glenn said on 1/Jan/06
he's 5-9.
rut said on 31/Dec/05
I think actually Gere was close to the 179 or 180 cm some sites say he was..
Anonymous said on 16/Nov/05
He's really only 5'10? parents are huge fans of his movies and we always thought he was much taller, maybe in the 6'0-6'1 range. I guess that goes to show you that celebs really do look taller on film.

Yes, ladies & gentleman, he IS 5'10". Me and my wife met him at a play in NY. I am 5'11" and he's about an inch shorter than me.
mcfan said on 30/Aug/05
He seems 5'10 or extremely close to it. He was slightly taller than Andy Garcia in Internal Affairs. They appeared roughly the same height but you could tell Gere was taller because slouches all the time. I think the reason many think he is shorter is because he tends to be in shots with tall women that wear heels.

From gossip group: "Richard Gere - as I remember - pretty short. Shorter than I'd expected"

Looks more like 5'9...maybe 5'9.5.
Richard Gere said on 4/Jun/05
Definitely 5 ft 8, 5 ft 9. In ''Shall We Dance'', his height seems close to that of Jennifer Lopez, of course wearing heels, but still... In ''Pretty Woman'', there was a sceen where Julia Roberts got new clothing. With her new heels, she was an inch or two taller than Richard Gere. If Richard Gere is 177 cm, the difference wouldn't be that noticeable.

Have you seen the movie "Shall We Dance"? There's a scene were he stands next to two other guys. He the shortest one. And besides he wears elevator shoes. So maybe he's 5' 9".
