Hi Rob,
how tall do think Cathy Moriarty is?
5ft 8in?
Arch Stanton said on 23/May/16
I think Efron was wearing a bit of a lift in Dirty Grandpa which was why he looked 2 inches taller at times 5'8.5.
5'8.5 said on 22/May/16
I think this listing is fair. He does look 5'7.5". However, if he is 5'7.5", then that leads me to believe that Zac Efron is at least 5'9.5". I've seen the two together multiple times (even in similar footwear) and Zac looked like 2 inches taller.

Sometime in the 70s I attended a party with a friend who was connected to the film industry. It was held in a NY Hotel. Robert De Niro was talking with two other men. All three men were short and extremely well dress, casually dressed, but perfectly fitted clothes. De Niro was wearing, if I remember correctly, a leather jacket, and I noticed it because it seemed to have been custom made, as it fit him perfectly for a short man. A normal sized jacket would have been too long on him. I talked to De Niro for a moment and looked him eye to eye. I am 5' 2" and was wearing high heels, the most they could have been were three inch high heels, (which I doubt they were actually that high.) De Niro was not much taller than me...I would say only by an inch. He is a very short man. In fact, I have never dated a man as short as De Niro. Movies create illusions, using many tricks to make male stars appear taller than they are, including their co-stars wearing flat shoes. Believe me, Robert De Niro is much shorter than the average man. I think it is a joke that it's claimed De Niro is of average height...no way at all.

Devin in Taxi Driver he wore these monster size cowboy boots throughout the movie. at the end of the movie he is standing beside 5 ft 7 Harvey Keitel and they looked the exact same height and Harvey was wearing big heeled boots too. Robert De Niro was without footwear 5 ft 6.5 inches in the 1970's.Today Robert De Niro is more likely to be 5 ft 5 inches.and that goes for Harvey too. While these 2 guys are making movies no one will ever see their true height as who they are because most Short Celebrities wear shoe lifts and shoe lifts can give a person up to 5 inches in height. Robert's 5 ft 10 listing everywhere is laughable. Everyone in this blog says Robert De Niro looks 5 ft 7. So if the man looks 5 ft 7 wouldn't that mean he is 5 ft 6 without shoes? I myself live in Canada and i stand 5 ft 9.5 inches. I look in the mirror and in flat feet i look like a giant. When i go out i tower over 98% of males and all i wear are plain running shoes. People calling Tom Cruise a short 5 ft 7 if they only knew Tom was actually 5 ft 4 inches flat feet. Got to love Hollywood.
Will said on 17/May/16
Yeah juju, I totally agree with you. De Niro is currrently 5'7 1/2" now due to shrink.
juju said on 5/May/16
I can dig 172cm. now, but 171cm. is too much
Devin said on 4/May/16
No way was his peak height 5'8". DeNiro looked a good 5'10"-5'11' in Taxi Driver.
Tom said on 19/Apr/16
Peak height was 5-8. Today, around 5-6. Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 24/Mar/16
The Last Tycoon is a bit flat, it's not a "great" film but it's certainly not a bad film. Compared to similar themed greats like Barton Fink and Trumbo it falls short, but it's never the disaster that some critics make out!
Arch Stanton said on 24/Mar/16
@Rob, don't know if you've seen the Last Tycoon but it's an interesting one as Jack Nicholson looks an easy inch taller than De Niro, makes him look 5 ft 8 range in it. But then DeNiro looks an easy inch taller than Tony Curtis earlier in the film!! So basically if Jack Nicholson was 5'9.5 we've got De Niro at 5'8.5 and Curtis at 5'7.5". Doesn't add up! It's a really underrated film, well we know Elia Kazan was a master director but its never as bad as the critics make out!!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/16
I think Efron might have had a boost in his shoes in Diry Grandpa just so he'd look comfortably taller than De Niro. A small lift for Efron looks possible Click Here
Editor Rob: it can be hard to tell people wearing half inch lifts. I mean really hard!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/16
Good call on the downgrade, he has certainly been looking 5 ft 7-5'7.5 of late
Editor Rob: the last 3-4 years I think he began to look like he lost another cm. I think in SLPlaybook he could still pass for about 5ft 8.
richie said on 28/Feb/16
DeNiro has clearly lost height, was definitely a strong 5'9" during the 70's but is closer to 5'8" these days, maybe a little shorter than that....
Arch Stanton said on 23/Feb/16
@Rob, there's absolutely no way he's the same height as Efton. In Dirty Grandpa he could look as low as 5'6.5 at times. In other scenes they looked close. Perhaps you'd consider 5'7.5 now?
Editor Rob: he can look 5ft 7-7.5 a fair bit this year, he probably has dropped a bit more height and at age 72 looks shorter than how he looked maybe 3-4 years ago.
JB said on 12/Feb/16
He's either lost a lot of height with age or he was never as tall as we thought he was. He looked dwarfted by Zack Efron who is something like 5'8"
Alex said on 30/Jan/16
He looks 5'6 with zac efron there's no way he's 5'8 nowadays
charlie said on 28/Jan/16
i think 5 foot 8 is a little too generous for Robert e Niro. Heck when he did Cape fear his height was at least 5 foot 8 or 5 foot 7 and a half.Robert's height is 5 foot 6 inches and that's the fact jack
Lmeister said on 25/Jan/16
Waltz is a selfconfessed 170cm. In these pics he looks as tall as DeNiro and taller than Keitel. We know that DeNiro is an inch taller than Keitel. Maybe DeNiro was only 5ft8.5 and Keitel 5ft7.5 in their youth. Unless both of them have lost more than an inch.

9 yezrs back h looked 3,5in under me
Powerhouse said on 14/Dec/15
@Spencer There is no chance Pesci was 5'4, he was 5'3 peak as he is listed on here. Al Pacino who was 5'5.75-5'6 peak would have been more than 2 inches taller than Joe Pesci.
Spencer said on 13/Dec/15
Pesci looked 5'4 at peak or very close to it and DeNiro is at least 5 inches taller in Raging Bull so I think DeNiro was at least 5'9 at peak. My guess is 5'9.5 morning and a solid 5'9.25 5'9 throughout the day at peak.
Paleman said on 12/Dec/15
Yeah I always thought of De Niro as a "strong average" when it comes to height. You know, 5'9" in his heyday, perhaps even a strong 5'9". Not 5'10" though. Today he may be a little bit shorter, like 5'8".
Powerhouse said on 8/Dec/15
I'm shocked at the amount of people that think De Niro was 5'10, He looks small to me, look at pictures of him with Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio, he looks real short. I know he has shrunk, though in his prime he looks short to me also. In Taxi Driver there is a scene where he lays flat on a bed, and from a birds eye view camera shot you can he is short and his legs look especially short and you see the large heel on his cowboy boots. Also looks short in Cape Fear. I think 5'7.5 now and 5'8.5 peak he was a skinny guy in his prime which is why people think he was taller, perhaps the illusion of a thin build and the larger footwear made him look taller to some people.
Spencer said on 26/Nov/15
At least 5'9 peak. He towered over Pesci in Raging Bull who looked close to 5'4 in that film. He honestly looks close to 5'10 in Raging Bull, Taxi Driver and Deer Hunter. I think he was minimum 176 cm in his prime and I think 5'9.5 is a possibility. Woods who was at least 5'11 peak doesn't look more than 2 inches taller in Once Upon a Time in America and they were both in their 30s in that movie.
NangaParbat said on 24/Nov/15
Hi Rob, check this out from "Dirty Grandpa" :

Click Here

and check efron' shoes as well :

Click Here (quite flat)

or De Niro shrank a lot in his age and he is more in the 169-170 now; or Zac grew a lot: he appears at least 178 if De Niro is 173 as listed on here.

What do you think?
Spencer said on 30/Oct/15
He looked at least 5'9 in Raging Bull. He looked 6 inches taller than Pesci who looked I think was a little over 5'3 at peak. I think 5'9.25 peak 176 cm
Sam said on 16/Oct/15
I agree he can look 5'7" these days but his posture can be truly horrendous & it can make him seem even lower. I think there's enough evidence of him hitting a flat 5'9" at peak.
dmeyer said on 13/Oct/15
Ecsctly like my father 175 peak today could be 171.5-2cm de niro dosnt stand well and likes boat shoes 0.7ish style so its normal he looks 5'7-7.25
Sam said on 8/Oct/15
Cowboy boots, slender build and good posture can make him seem taller at some points in Taxi Driver IMO than he really was.
Will said on 5/Oct/15
That's right folks. De Niro is 5'8". No questions asked.
vilgotaan said on 1/Oct/15
He looked tall on Deer Hunter.
Spencer said on 25/Sep/15
Looks a solid 5'9 in Raging Bull. I think 176 peak. 5'9.25
O.J. said on 22/Sep/15
He's 5'7 flat. I saw him in person in 2011 along with Sam Jackson and Spike Lee. De Niro has very bad posture and looked only an inch taller than the 5'5 and a half Spike Lee. I give him an extra half inch for poor posture.
richie said on 19/Sep/15
DeNiro's peak height may well have been a strong 5'9", he was just slightly shorter than John Cazale who was billed as 5'11" so i reckon during his peak he was a very strong 5'9"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Aug/15
Rob, do you think DeNiro is a height conscious guy and wears lifts?


Even recently he can still pull off 5ft9 range in some pictures.
[Editor Rob: there's a magical niche in celebrity circles - the 'non obvious lift wearer', the kind who wears a 1/2 or 3/4 inch lift for a wee boost...spotting it is very hard though.]
Mike said on 13/Aug/15
Closer to 171-172 now. 5ft 8 max.
Sam said on 13/Aug/15
Would love to see these three collaborate again: Scorsese, De Niro and Keitel...De Niro is slouching as he often does but does look to easily edge out Keitel.

richkid123 said on 11/Aug/15
he looked over 5'9" in casino
Rory said on 21/Jul/15
Id say 5'9 maximum in his prime, definitely not 5'10. I always thought he looked an average height guy, at times even on the smaller side of average, so it all tallies with him being 5'9.
the shredder said on 30/Jun/15
Rob , even though he was in boots , he looked 5 '11" in Taxi Driver , was 5'9.5 or higher possible in his prime
[Editor Rob: I'm not convinced he could really look over 5ft 10]
Owen said on 23/Jun/15
Wouldn't 171cm be accurate for him? He hardly looks 5'8...
an anonymous peach said on 10/Jun/15
Looks a strong 5ft 7 nowadays. I don't think he's a full 5ft 8 anymore, however his woeful posture might be making him look shorter.
Danimal said on 20/Mar/15
Sorry, but he's not 5'8" today. Slightly over 5'7" at best today.
cole said on 19/Mar/15
172 cm now, 175 cm 20-25 years ago is likely. Still looked near 175 cm in 'Goodfellas' in 1990 and 10 years later around 'Meet the Parents' is when I think he started to shrink. In the next 10-15 years he could be 170 if he keeps up the slouching, not that it's easy to fix that now.

Peak: 5ft 9in
1990ish: 5ft 8.75in
2000ish: 5ft 8.5in
2010: 5ft 8in
2015: 5ft 7.75in
Shamrock said on 8/Mar/15
Could be 172cm by now.
winters said on 20/Feb/15
i got the same height as de niro 5'8 seems correct. nowadays with his age he lost maybe some millimeter or 5. niro 172,5 cm now with his old age.
Stev said on 18/Feb/15
Anyone see 'Alan Davies untitled' with guest Ricky Tomlinson. He told an interesting story about meeting Robert de Niro in a club, not knowing who he was at the time, and remarked ' a little fella sitting in the corner' and even added, 'I'm only 5'8 and half myself', suggesting that Robert was indeed shorter than Ricky tomlinson, and this was apparently in his younger days.
kev said on 17/Feb/15
5' 9" peak, 5'7.5 now. He's never been anything over 5'9 in his life, his wiry build in his younger years and his narrow shoulders might of gave that impression but when he hit his mid forties it became easier to make out his legit height. Slightly under average.
John B said on 5/Feb/15
Right now as I type I'm watching The film grudge match with Mr Stallone and De Niro is always a good 2 inches shorter the Sly there's no way his 5'8 as on this site Sly is 5'8....
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/15
Just looked at the photo on the Michael Douglas page and he looks taller!! Douglas really is headed down the same route as his father! He'll be G's height in five years!
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jan/15
Rob perhaps it's time for another downgrade check out this with 5'8 Efron Click Here
[Editor Rob: I think if you measured DeNiro he still might be around 5ft 8, at times he can look under but with older people sometimes they don't have the posture they once had and carry themselves a bit lower. Not many are going to be like Stallone! ]
184.3cm said on 29/Dec/14
Never over 5'9 peak, used to wear chunky footwear in alot of his older movies. Nowadays struggles with 5'8.
Dmeyer said on 28/Dec/14
I think he was a 175cm Guy i dont think more , was 172-172.5cm when i met him 7 years back
the shredder said on 28/Dec/14
Rob , is 5 '9.5 peak possible ?
[Editor Rob: losing 1.5 inches isn't impossible, 2 inches though I'm not sure...but over 5ft 9 yeah that could be.]

Thanks. He can look anywhere between 5ft 8 and 5ft 10 so 5ft 9 is a good shout.

Never thought he was this tall! I haven't seen much of his early work, but he doesn't look 5' 8" now.
qashid said on 28/Nov/14
5'9 at peak, gave the illusion of a 6 footer in his movies. Nowadays I would say 5'7 to 5'8.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Nov/14
Rob, Robert Duvall looked about 4 cm taller in True Confessions!! Hew made him look 5 ft 8!
Realist said on 23/Nov/14
5'7.5 today. 5'8.5 peak. He was skinny and looked tall. In the Godfather 2 he looks almost 6'0. He has transformed from a tall lanky look to a short stocky look. Maybe its age.
The Master said on 22/Nov/14
I remember an article in Sky magazine, circa 1987. He was described as 5'10 and weighing 10 stone 10 pounds.
Sam said on 21/Nov/14
That's a weird angled picture w/ Cooper, Exorcist, giving Cooper a bit more but I'd agree, De Niro can look something like 5'7.5" a lot recently, his posture isn't helping.
Judd said on 19/Nov/14
i think he was 5'8.75-9" when he was between 20-40's, but today he really looks shorter...maube more than one-inche...
perhaps the cause is the very bad posture that he has, but i would bet money than next to rob (5'8.25") he would be shorter of at least half-inche...
The Exorcist said on 19/Nov/14
Looking under 5'8" with (6'0.5" listed) Bradley Cooper.

Arch Stanton said on 6/Nov/14
5 ft 9 looks virtually impossible next to Tom Sizemore in Heat!
Joe said on 5/Nov/14
In some photos with Stallone who is a well known lift wearer, he looks a bit shorter. My most educated guess is that Stallone is 5'7" and nothing more, so I would guess all of Stallone's height advantage comes from his lifts, so De Niro is probably not taller than 5'7" in real life. Regardless of his height, he is an incredible actor.
lelman said on 4/Nov/14
Was a legit 5'9" back in the day, now I'd say he's a hair over 5'8", like you.
Dingus said on 27/Oct/14
Peak height was likely 5'09.75" give or take an eight of an inch. It's likely he's lost over an inch and is hovering around 5'07.50"-5'08'.25".
Sam said on 27/Oct/14
The King of Comedy is idisputably a film designed to cause discomfort in its audience, a very dark movie considering (especially for Scorsese) that there isn't a drop of blood in it. I don't like the characters but can't look away. It's not for everybody!
Arch Stanton said on 25/Oct/14
Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Godfather Part II and Goodfellas are all all-time greatest movies so I'm not going to dispute those in any order in your top five, but I can't see King of Comedy of a superior film to Once Upon a Time in America. Perhaps it was a greater performance in that film, even if he was frankly a bit irritating at times!!
Sam said on 24/Oct/14
Taxi Driver is my all time favorite film, period, a very personal film to me. The film and it's main character take on a different meaning to me every time I watch it. I'd respectfully disagree on Once Upon a Time in America being his best my list of top 10:
1. Taxi Driver
2. Raging Bull
3. The Godfather Part II
4. Goodfellas
5. Heat
6. The King of Comedy
7. Mean Streets
8. The Deer Hunter
9. The Untouchables
10. Cape Fear or Bang the Drum Slowly or Once Upon a Time in America!
Markus from Italy said on 13/Oct/14
Well, this makes sense, in fact with stallone on the big match he was clearly shorter. I can buy that for him even though in the picture above he's wearing elevator shoes and you can tell it by the neck of the shoe. One thing's certain he can't be less than 5'7.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Oct/14
His top 10 films IMO:

1. Once Upon a Time in America
2. The Godfather II
3. Taxi Driver
4. Goodfellas
5. Raging Bull
6. 1900
7. The Deer Hunter
8. Casino
9. The Untouchables
10. Mean Streets or The Mission
Arch Stanton said on 6/Oct/14
@Rob/Armenianboy, Nah, Once Upon a Time in America wins it hands down as his best film, a marvellous piece of cinema. Even Scorsese said something like it made him look like a amateur. Technical accomplishments of Lord of the Rings trilogy aside, that film has my vote for greatest film (currently) anyway. His best performance for me was Raging Bull, the emotions he displayed in that film. Taxi Driver is also right up there with his greatest films and performances. Obviously a lot of his films from Mean Streets onwards have been masterpieces though, and Goodfellas, Godfather II and Casino are also among my favourites. Also his performances in films like Awakenings were also incredible... All I know is that it wasn't Falling in Love :-) you put the two greatest actors on earth together (De Niro and Streep) and you get a mediocre romance!!
Clay said on 5/Oct/14
Goodfella's could be my greatest movie ever vote.
Sam said on 24/Sep/14
Here's De Niro with Francis Ford Coppola, for whom I read somewhere (can't remember where) a credit of six feet tall but looked at most 5'11" with the cast of the first Godfather (Jimmy Caan, presumably in lifts, looked a little taller & John Cazale similar range). Anyway, De Niro definitely seems 5'9" tops w/ Coppola.
Click Here
He has terrible posture at premiere and stuff recently that can make him seem shorter. However, with Ben Stiller, its hard to see him anything more than an inch taller. Maybe time for a 5'7.5" current height listing?
Click Here
Joanna said on 12/Sep/14
Is he really 5 ft 9? At the Oscars he presented with Penelope Cruz and she (who is 5 ft 4) towered over him. Even with really tall heels on that seems unlikely. Now he's co-starring with Anne Hathaway (supposedly 5 ft 7) and she towers over him too. I figure he's 5 ft 6 max.
James B said on 2/Sep/14
Always seemed 5'8 range
Powerhouse said on 28/Aug/14
His peak height could be 5'9 but he is no taller than 5'7.5 now.

Odd but he looks the same height, maybe a shade taller than Robin Williams in Awakenings.

RoDawg said on 22/Jul/14
In Taxi Driver he gave off the impression of seeming taller, but I think he was wearing boots. Strong 5'9 in his peak. He could probably reach 5'10 with the right pair of shoes
177cmGuy said on 16/Jul/14
Always wondered what De Niro's maximum height was. I think it could be as high as 177cm but today he looks at least 172cm. The man is a true living legend and method actor who took acting to a new level. Loved Goodfellas probably one of my favourite films and definiteley De Niro's best performance.
176,2Tunman said on 8/Jul/14
Casino could be added as one of his most famous movies.Anyways he looked 6"taller than Joe Pesci.
Brad said on 7/Jul/14
Weak 5' 8" today, possibly lower.
Sam said on 5/Jun/14
I just saw the majority of Mad Dog and Glory for the first time in decades on TV. They did a really masterful job minimizing the difference between De Niro and Thurman on-screen. A lot of nice camera trickery and in several scenes, he's wearing shoes and she's barefoot, anyway he looks max 1 inch shorter generally. Also Bill Murray doesn't tower him there, 3 or max 4 inches difference, and about 3 under David Caruso, so De Niro really does look a strong 5'9" there...don't know about lifts. God, Uma was gorgeous, De Niro was a lucky **** if the rumors are true that they had an off-screen tryst. Also, Caruso was pretty good there, too bad he cocked things up career-wise.
Vibram said on 1/Jun/14
Strong 5ft8.75 > weak 5ft9 (175cm) in his prime (1970's). He was built up in Taxi Friver to look 5ft11. He was weaing cowboy's. In Cape fear when Robert was 47, he looked 5ft8.25 (173cm) next to 6ft2 Joe Don Baker. He was dwarfed. I think he's 5ft7.5 today.
edguy282 said on 28/May/14
Based on all the pictures, I think at his peak, DeNiro was 174cm--he always seemed just shy of 5-9. Now, he looks like a weak 5-8, probably 172cm.
Sam said on 28/May/14
He's slouching but seems no taller than Jon Stewart here. 5'7.5"-5'8" is what I think De Niro looks in general these days.

@Arch:

I didn't say 5'7" flat, I said he could be closer to that than 5'8". Uma is 5'11" - 5'11.5" range...it isn't impossible.

It's hard to tell from those pics if Uma has a heel on her footwear, but I'm guessing it wouldn't be much if there is. As the difference between her and De Niro is much more significant in this photo where she is undoubtedly wearing heels.

He could be closer to 5'7" than 5'8".

He looks 5'8.75-5'9 in Taxi Driver. Nowadays,5'8 or just under.

5'9 peak is about right , he has 6 inches on Pesci in Raging Bull.

I'm not sure he reaches 5'7 today given the fact that he was shorter than penelope cruz in the Oscars.
Rossmore said on 11/Mar/14
He is NOT 5'10. I am 5'11 and I waited on him, years ago, he was at least two inches shorter than me. BTY he did stand up to leave and that's when it became clear he was not 5'10.

De Niro and Stallone hug each other at 12.25. Not sure whether the ground is even or not but Stallone looks only a fraction taller than De Niro.

Peak: 5'9
Today: 5'7.5
Sam said on 18/Nov/13
I'm convinced that De Niro peaked right near 5'9". In Taxi Driver, I truly disbelieve that he wore lifts, although his boots are generous perhaps up to 1.5 inches, which is why he looks a strong 5'10" at times in that film. These days, he slouches a lot, I think it's fair to say he generally looks 5'8" but then at times lucky to be 5'7". You have to account that, beyond age, he slouches like a man who doesn't care about looking tall.
Orlando said on 15/Nov/13
This guy never looked tall to me. No more than 1.73 m (5'8") at his peak. He looked taller because of a wiry built. Now maybe he's 1.71 m (5' 7.5") or 1.70 m (5'7").
Cameron said on 15/Nov/13
5'9 peak (5'10 to 5'11 in boots or elevator shoes)
5'8 today

weak 5'9 at peak, could look 5'8 at times. Today, he is about 5'7.
Markus from Italy said on 14/Nov/13
Mr. Kapian I think you're right, in Taxi Driver he wore suspicious shoes and now I know that's not only my opinion but also yours. Rob what do you think? Is it possible for him to be just 5'7?
Mr. Kaplan said on 14/Nov/13
De Niro wore cowboy boots in Taxi Driver. He was 5'8" at his peak and looks 5'7" today.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Nov/13
His physique really looked impressive in Cape Fear. Very low body fat and very hard/wiry, he must have slogged his guts out for months and been on a strict diet to look like that.
Sam said on 1/Nov/13
He and Sly Stallone look pretty close in height in their upcoming boxing movie together. Also in the shot, Jon Bernthal, easily looking around the same amount over De Niro and Stallone that he looks over Rob. BTW, 80-something Alan Arkin is on hand and looks similar to or slightly taller than the slightly younger stars. At least Kevin Hart is on hand to show how towering they all are. :=)

@Arch Stanton: Gary Neville? I'm never going to be able to think about Taxi Driver the same way ever again! LOL!! ;)

I agree with Rob's current and peak height listing for De Niro.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Sep/13
Rob, in Raging Bull he seems a bit taller than Cathy Moriarty. In the bathroom scene he's in his socks too. She's listed as 5 ft 9. He can certainly look 177 at times. Cathy's eyes and body leave me feeling goo-gaaa, those eyes are so hypnotic. She's still hot today, she looks like she could be Katherine Heigl's mother.
Cnut the Great said on 21/Sep/13
I agree a strong 5'9" for DeNiro.. Does not come off as a short guy at all

Looks about 3 inches shorter than Walken in The Deer Hunter. He looks a LOT like Djokovic as a young man.

A strong 5'9" in his prime which would be when he was in Goodfellas.
Will said on 29/Aug/13
I still think that De Niro is a strong 5ft 8. Maybe he is not 5'9" these days because he lost an inch of height.
Lo sgozzatore said on 13/Aug/13
Arch, i've seen the scene you're talking about and he did look at least 7 inches shorter than that 6'4 guy! If De Niro really was wearing cowboy boots, i dont think he looked over 5'8 next to that guy, unless he was over 6'4 and got downgraded a bit when he was listed at 6'4!
avi said on 11/Aug/13
never looked a true 5'9
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jul/13
De Niro in Taxi Driver kind of looked like a cross between Djokovic and Gary Neville but looked like Travis Barker with the mad mohawk!!
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jul/13
Good guess, just looked on the database and it credits him as Richard Higgs - tall security man and says height -6'4".And di Niro was wearing cowboy boots and looked easily 6 inches shorter.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jul/13
Watched Taxi Driver yesterday and i thought he looked a flat 5'9" and around 150 pounds. He looked shorter compared to a lot of guys in the film. The "secret agent" guy he was talking too had to have been about 6'4" though.
Terry said on 18/Jun/13
Agree with lol93. 5'9 is bang on, though maybe he has lost couple of cm's now. What a actor this guy is. Brilliant.

Ange said on 13/Apr/13
After Goodfellas and Casino i remember reading in a rag mag about the height of movie stars like Schwarzenegger, Pacino and Stallone.. I found out Robert Deniro was only 5'9" and i remember being stunned because he seemed so larger then life and...in all the mob movies I'd watched him in...menacing!!! It turns out,he was the same height as me!!! After 30 your spine starts to compress so I'm probably 5'8" now makes sense if he is =)
Rittermeister said on 12/Feb/13
Sam, thanks for the photos. I didn't realize how huge Chazz Palminteri is - he dominates those guys. I happen to be the exact same height as Palminteri - 6'3" in the morning, 6'2.5" most of the day - and based on that, I can't see De Niro being much under 5'7", or any taller than 5'8". Anything shorter and his head would be below Palminteri's shoulder.
Mike said on 31/Jan/13
That's right folks, De Niro stands 5'8" -5'9" as given in the above. No, he hasn't ever seen 5ft 10 at all.

I stood shoulder to shoulder with DeNiro on a movie set and I was 5'5" at best.

LOL, ron, De Niro's always been taller than Keitel and probably still is. BTW, I knew somebody had a friend who used to be a personal assistant for Keitel. She said that he was a difficult oddball to work for but one time she walked into Keitel's dark apartment and randomly found De Niro rooting around in Keitel's fridge (apparently he had a key).

Around 5' 9" at peak, but gave a 5' 7" - 5' 8" impression at a glance when he was younger due to his meek build. In Taxi Driver, he looked really really thin -- weight probably around 135-140. However, he was about even with Cybill Shepherd and that surprised me. He wasn't well-built and tall-looking like Brandooo. He was more like Michael Jackson.

Look guys. He's clearly quite a bit taller than 5' 7" Bob Dylan:

I worked as an extra for several days on A Bronx Tale in the Fall of 1992. I was in close proximity to Mr. De Niro a number of times and at one point we stood side by side. I'd say he was 5'9 at that point. I don't remember anything about his shoes but nothing about them struck me as having lifts. He wasn't acting in any of the scenes, just directing, so there'd be no reason from an acting standpoint for him to wear lifts.
Silent d said on 9/Nov/11
He is 5 foot 8. Clearly taller than al pacino by a couple of inches. Clearly taller than ben stiller and dustin hoffman. In show time he was shorter than 176cm eddie murphy. He definitive wore lifts in goodfellas to look tall next to 6 foot ray liotta.

I met Robert De Niro around 1978 thereabouts. Warren Beatty gave a party for his film REDS for the staff of Gulf & Western/Paramount in NYC. I was 5'2" wearing not quite 3" heels. I was shocked...De Niro is Short! Very Short. I would say about 5'7" tops. He was wearing a leather jacked that was obviously custom made. I noticed it because is was so short. In perportion to his short statue. He must definitly wears lifts in film. I am surprised that he even got an opportunity to get in films, being so short. There must be a lot of trick photography happening in his films. Sorta like Alan Ladd.

I don't think DeNiro was ever over 5'8''. He probably wore lifts in some films. He seems like he would, especially for roles, as he is a true method actor. Christopher Walken, who was an even 6 feet, looked at least four inches taller than him in 'The Deer Hunter,' so did Charles Grodin in 'Midnight Run.'

Walken was at least 6'0.5"-6'1" in his younger days.

De Niro looked a solid 5'9 in GF II and looked 5'9 in Raging Bull. He was slightly taller than Cathy Moriarty who was 5'8.5 minimum. I agree with Jake I think he was slightly over 5'9 at peak and is today about 5'8.

There is so much nonsense on the internet. For example, the above (presumably), statement that lifts made him taller: what is a rumour? - essentially nothing; fundamentally though, if he did wear them they did not make him taller, but they would have made him look taller!; lastly, correct grammar please? (exasperation) - "to make himSELF taller". I do despair for the human race, in some quarters of the globe more than others I might add!

I couldn't stand the irony of THIS paragraph telling someone to correct grammar.

Kaplan you have no clue what your talking about. He was taller than Cathy M in Raging Bull who was 5'8.5 or maybe 5'9. He looked 6 inches taller than Joe Pesci in the movie who was 5'3. No doubt in my mind De Niro was 5'9 at peak

Busted!

Busted??? A 5'11" woman in high heels can be 6'3"... 6'3" minus 6" is 5'9" which is what your logic states Deniro was at in shoes, which would put him at 5'8" barefoot. How is that busted??? Even if the heels only gave her 3" and put her up to only 6'2", Deniro barefoot would still be 5'7", which is accurate his his height today...

Spence please can you post a photo of your head, you are the only guy I know who believes 6 inches is the distance between your pupil to the top of their head e.g. De Niro vs Pesci. If you want to argue De Niro was 5'9 peak at least upgrade Pesci or post the photograph of your head as it would be very interesting and might explain your strange insistance.

Also do you feel Cybill Shepherd is taller than De Niro in taxi driver, if yes how tall is cybill?

P.S I wish I could spell ankles when in a hurry.

She is usually listed 5'9 at most places. They're both barefoot. If you ask me De niro looks to be just as tall as her there in his prime. I know he is closer to 5'7.5 - 5'8 nowadays but I believe a 5'8.5 - 5'9 peak was possible.
georgeclooneysmum said on 7/Feb/11
Spence has a weird shape head he keeps going on about de niro having 6 inches on Pesci in raging bull. I have seen that film many times, every time I see it Pesci comes up to de niro eyeline. Now in Holland they measured the height from the centre of pupil of the eye on 6ft guys. it is 4.4 inches on 6ft footers. So if De Niro has a head as big as a 6 foot guy he would at best be 4 1/2 inches taller than Pesci. Taxi Driver also stars Cybill Shepherd listed here at 5'8. Strangely in the long shots De Niro is at best as tall as Cybill and his angles are higher than De Niro's. Go figure. Cybill either got to go up in height or De Niro down.

In a recent picture with Matt Damon (5'10) he looked 2.5 inches shorter at least so my guess is that 5'8 would be his morning height barefoot

I'm kind of surprised to hear that his height is often stated as only 5'8-5'9, I always thought he looked well above average height. My guess would've been 5'11 in his early days, but I guess he did use lifts in some of his movies.

i saw james wood in studio city back in 1992. i forgot how tall he looked or what shoes he was wearing but i always thought he was 5'10 maybe 5'10.5 at his prime.

De Niro with Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán (official height 5'8", I guess he's closer to 5'7"):

haha...if hes a strong 5'11", which he wasn't, but if he was, then harvey keitel is a solid 5'8" man...which thats completely ridiculous. woods was always a 5'10" man.

james woods was never 5'11". he was around 5'10"-5'10.5". watch the film TRUE BELIEVER w/ 5'7" robert downey jr. easily a solid 3 inches over downey. and downey's never been over 5'7". watch the THE PICK UP ARTIST, 5'7" harvey keitel was his height.

he looked pretty tall in Taxi Driver (1976) if he said he were 5'10 on that time I would 100% belive it now it looks about 5'8-5'8.5 to me
