Comment on the Height of Robert De Niro

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.

@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.

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.]
Adolf said on 16/Dec/14
King of comedy, The Family, Ronin, Amalyze this, Analyze that, Midnight run, Men of Honor, Jackie Brown, Wag the Dog, Cop Land, Sleepers, The Fan, CAPE FEAR!!!, Awakenings and many more!!!
Mike said on 12/Dec/14
Thanks. He can look anywhere between 5ft 8 and 5ft 10 so 5ft 9 is a good shout.
Mike said on 9/Dec/14
Can you also add one more film Rob? The Untouchables.
Mike said on 6/Dec/14
Can you add The Godfather: Part II Rob?
Andrew M said on 30/Nov/14
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.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Aug/14
Odd but he looks the same height, maybe a shade taller than Robin Williams in Awakenings.
Blake said on 20/Aug/14
5'9.5 peak, 5'10.5 in footwear
5'8 flat today
Arch Stanton said on 29/Jul/14
Rob can you add a photo and Mean Streets, Casino, and Once Upon a Time in America? Looks 5'9" tops in New York, New York.
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.

I'd say 5'8 max
The Exorcist said on 27/Apr/14

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" isn't impossible.
Dmeyer said on 27/Apr/14
Uma is 181cm plus 4-5cm heels 186cm deniro 172cm plus 2cm 174cm she dosnt look more than 11-12cm taller

Uma's wearing sizable Cuban like heels Exorcist. 5 ft 7 flat is rubbish.

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".
MaskDeMasque said on 31/Mar/14
He looks 5'8.75-5'9 in Taxi Driver. Nowadays,5'8 or just under.
the shredder said on 26/Mar/14
5'9 peak is about right , he has 6 inches on Pesci in Raging Bull.
marc said on 24/Mar/14
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.

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)

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. :=)

No way was he 3 inches taller than Spike Lee.

If Spike is 5'5, today he's more like 5'7.

Liotta looks 3 inches taller in Goodfellas, I'm not sure you could argue over 5'9" peak.
The Exorcist said on 3/Oct/13
@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
Arch Stanton said on 21/Sep/13
Looks about 3 inches shorter than Walken in The Deer Hunter. He looks a LOT like Djokovic as a young man.
Joey said on 21/Sep/13
I think a strong 5' 9 1/2" is fair for his peak height.
Jack said on 15/Sep/13
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!

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.
lol93 said on 29/Apr/13
He looked 5'9 in the taxi driver
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 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.
LQ said on 29/Jan/13
I stood shoulder to shoulder with DeNiro on a movie set and I was 5'5" at best.
Silent d said on 28/Jan/13
He is old as and more intimidating now. He is still one of the legendary actors left. 5 foot 8. Maybe 5 foot 9 in his prime.
Sam said on 25/Jan/13
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).

I believe this he's only 2 inches taller then Ben stiller who is 5'6
Will said on 26/Dec/12
I heard circulated rumors from the media press that De Niro stood 5ft 10in barefeet. But you need to all trust me on this one that Robert is more 5ft 8 in reality.
The Exorcist said on 20/Nov/12
Looking 3.5 inches shorter than Uma Thurman.

Nowadays, he's about 5'7.5
candace said on 10/Nov/12
5'7/5'8 sounds right, I think he shrank over the year. He is getting older, anyhow...just watched Red Lights, he is clearly shorter than Cillian Murphy ( whos listed at 5'8 here, but 5'9 in every other sites)
DD said on 6/Nov/12
a yahoo article had him at 5'6"!

When he wasn't rake-thin, he clearly wasn't a short-looking guy:

Could be under 5' 8" today though:

Anon said on 11/Aug/12
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:

Im 5foot9 and never looked this height. So i think, de Niro was taller then 5foot9 in his younger years.

5 foot 8.

At least 5' 9" in 'The Deer Hunter'.

He looked tall in the godfather 2 but he could have lost a in ch over the years.
dmeyer said on 7/Sep/07
in heat he look to be 5'9.5 almost 5'10 in person looked 5'8 flat so in the pics with glenn he dosnt look over 173 cm
dmeyer said on 17/Aug/07
i agree can look 5'9.5 in meet the fockers in low heeled boat shoes for some reason in person looked 5'8 flat gave me impression of 5'7.5 but i might have had 0.25 shoes advantage
JanJ said on 31/Jul/07
de niro is 5'7.5, he's just as tall as michelle pfeiffer with heels
JanJ said on 30/Jul/07
De niro's peak height is about 5'9.5
now he's around 5'7.5
Dermot said on 30/Jul/07
I just saw meet the fockers on tv and theres no way De Niros got over 2 inchs on Ben Stiller as I think Stillers height of 5ft6.25 is right De Niro must be shorter
the shredder said on 27/Jul/07
Joe Pesci is in heeled shoes ! ... So Robert the Niro was like 5'8.5 for that time !
APP said on 26/Jul/07
I just watched that Raging Bull clip, and he's wearig slippers in the scene with Joe Pesci and his character's first wife (when they're rowing), and De Niro still looks like he has about 5 inches on Pesci.
dits said on 26/Jul/07
To be very honest, De Niro always looked like a good 5'11-ish guy to me. I saw one of his recent movies, Meet the fockers, and he looks pretty tall there.. Definitely not 5'8 in any way.

But that is not to say he isn't 5'8..Some men just look taller because they have great posture,and a lot of charisma to themselves. De Niro is one of them.
the shredder said on 26/Jul/07
Check this out Rob ... NO WAY was De Niro past 5'8 - 5'9 in Raging Bull !

the shredder said on 22/Jul/07
Al Pacino was most likely around 5 ft 6 , and in the photos from 1977 with De Niro , De niro is lucky if he has 2 1/2 inches on Pacino .

I agree with Dmeyer that he most likely is not past 5'8 nowdays .
18,181 said on 21/Jul/07
he looked 5'7.5,wow,then again hes not taller than Glenn.
18,181 said on 21/Jul/07
De Niro looks 5'8 with Glenn. since morning height lasts for about an hour or so.
dmeyer said on 18/Jul/07
in persom realy didnt look over 5'8 he look 5'7.5 to 5'8
lrua said on 5/Jun/07
Never looked more than 5'8" to me, probably wears lifts for certain roles.

5' 9". Hey Robert, do the Morris Levy motion picture. Moishey was the man.
dmeyer said on 27/May/07
frank2 mantioned 5'8 deniro didnt look look over 5'8 he even looked 5'7.75 but i might have had 0.25 shoe advantage he was an easy 3 in under me he looks so tall in meet the fockers that i expect him aleast 5'9 to 5'9.5 he was barely 5'8 i doubt he has lost more than 1 in since he is in great shape so 175 peak 173 now in public tom cruise apear taller than deniro like 5'8.5 to 5'8.75 and sean penn seemed shorter than deniro he gave impression of 5'6 from distance also deniro seemed a bit shorter than barry levinsin who is about 174 cm
LPW said on 13/May/07
Stood next to DeNiro at a Ry Cooder concert at Carnegie Hall in the late 70's, and he was no taller that me: 5'6". Guess he wasn't wearing his lifts then.

Well, another one of whom my mother has met. She's quite a fan of De Niro and said that he was (at least) 5-9 when she met him.
the shredder said on 9/Apr/07
Rob , are you going to add Michael Wincott ???

[Editor Rob: I forgot, I meant to add him after dmeyer had mentioned he looked no more 5ft 9, I'll add him now]
Brad said on 7/Apr/07
Martin Scorsese & Michael Mann made him look taller than he was in "Raging Bull" & "Heat". It helps to cast short around him. I'd guess 5' 9" then & now. He always has great posture.
the shredder said on 6/Apr/07
I NEVER can see him at 5'10 ! ... If hes 172cm that dmeyer saw nowdays , then 5'8.5 , 5'9 was peak ! To me he looks just about 5'9 in Raging Bull !
dmeyer said on 5/Apr/07
glenn is 172 and in both pics the look about the same
dmeyer said on 5/Apr/07
wincot was indeed a good 2 inch shorter than me so 174 175 range deniro was a good in under him i think deniro was a hair under 5'8 when i met him but lets give him 5'8 but he looked 5'7.5 he was noticably shorter than levinson who is barely average

possibly 2.5 in shoerter he could be a 5'8.75 but he is close enaugh 5'9 indeed a good 2 inches under me

LOL I can't get over that Michael Wincott was listed at 6'5 !!! ...
dmeyer said on 29/Mar/07
i walked by him 3 or 4 times i shook his hand also he was shorter than michael wincot who was 5'8.5 to 5'9 5'8 is possible but no more he was a good 3 inches shorter than me maybe looked 5'7.5 but maybe 5'8 but 2 of my friends on the set thinks even shorter than that

[Editor Rob: oh, you met michael wincott aswell, how close did you get to him, a good 2 inches shorter than you then?]
dmeyer said on 29/Mar/07
rob is 5 ft 7.75 possible for deniro because he looked a weak 5'8

[Editor Rob: at the moment I still think he can hold 5ft 8 maybe he doesn't have good posture, you saw him a lot on the set?]
dmeyer said on 28/Mar/07
by that mark matt damon is 5'9
dmeyer said on 28/Mar/07
i met deniro yesturday i worked 14 hours on a movie of his and sean penn and deiro was shorter than i thaught he looked 3 in plus shorter than me he could be 5'8 but he seemed closer to 5'7.5 no way 5'8.5 maybe in shoes but since he is 60 plus he might have been clause to 5'9 at 20s but he looked a bit under 5'8 he could be 5'7.25 to 5'8 max also sean from distance looked 5'6 his body make him look 5'5 but even thaugh i wasnt close enaugh i could see he was 5'8 or under nowere near 5'9
Franco said on 23/Mar/07
sorry Dmeyer i dont agree, i saw DeNiro about 6 months ago in venice which is a city he comes often and he looked 5'9 to 5'9 1/2 in shoes so he is 5'8 to 5'8 1/2 barefoot.

De Niro however does hunch a bit which can make him look 5'7 or so but when he does stand tall you can see he is a strong 5'8 today. he have a bit of a bad posture but not as bad as Kevin Bacon.
dmeyer said on 23/Mar/07
can look 5'8 but wears sometimes boat shoes with 0.6 in heels i think he is steel 5'8.25 to 5'8.5 was about 5'9.25 to 5'9.5 at peak by that march damon is i hair under 5'10
dmeyer said on 23/Mar/07
a friend of mine met him yesterday and to me denire was 5'7.25 but i doubt robert is under 5'8
Leung said on 20/Mar/07
yes Franco, in his younger days De Niro was a solid 59, possibly 59.5.
Franco said on 20/Mar/07
grabbed a couple of screenies off MIDNIGHT RUN. he looks 1.77cm with shoes so he is surely 1.75cm without em.

Click Here

check it out. ;)
Franco said on 19/Mar/07
I have watched yesterday a movie of DeNiro called "MIDNIGHT RUN" and to be totally honest he didnt look short and his shoes didn't look the LIFT type at all they were thin soles. his body is perfectly proportionate and that helped him.

DE NIRO without shoes was no doubt 5'9 and possibly 5'9.5 but not 5'10.
i saw him countless times in Italy this couple of years (2005-2006) and to be totally honest with shoes he looks 5'9, so today DeNiro is definetely 5'8 and you can even see in the picture with GLENN he is almost eye 2 eye.
glenn said on 19/Mar/07
no,never banned.maybe in trouble a bit.a couple of idiots mightve got banned in my time.i knew one idiot in early 1992 that got banned from the nbc building for making a bomb threat.he would get photos with.he was a black guy named robert e quick and was an aspiring actor who would show off his head shot.he once told an actress,cant remember who,i gotta go make a those exact words.i wonder what life had in store for him.i wonder why he didnt make the big time.japenese vinyl is the best.
Brad said on 19/Mar/07
Louis looked 6' 1" plus some height enhanced shoes. He was walking down some steps so he looked taller to all the idiots like me below him. You ever get 86'd from hotels for life? I hear some of the big dealers in L.A. are escorted out for loitering in lobbys. Those NBC goons all had the same line "she or he left already". LP's are the best to get signed....Japanese issues for the better covers. All the 007 actresses go crazy over the foreign covers with them on them. George Lazenby wanted my Japanese 007 ones. It made sick at Paramount in '86 seeing most of the Star Trek cast walking around the lot and having nothing to get signed. My brother sat on the Enterprise Bridge and I took his picture in Kirk's chair. One time we snuck onto Universal and walked into the "Simon & Simon" stage. He was going to lift the desk name plate but we got caught walking towards it by a guy cleaning the place. We got a jaywalking ticket for walking across the freight entrance to the place later...we thought it might have been something else.
glenn said on 18/Mar/07
sounds like you beat me by far in tv and soundtrack vinyl signed.i have hardly any.i guess i have alot of music signed tall did farrakan look to you? i know what you know how many situations im in where i cant get autographs where ill like an ass or get kicked out? at least once a week im schmoozing secretly somewhere.
Brad said on 18/Mar/07
I just pay the price at Ray Courts' celebrity show and eventually I get my TV LP's signed. Addams Family by Gomez, Wednesday, Pugsley. Man From U.N.C.L.E./Girl From U.N.C.L.E./Burke's Law/lots of Western TV shows. Easy Rider soundtrack is very cool to get signed. I got Fonda in Vegas at the Harley place, Hopper is coming to Courts and Nicholson runs after Laker games so I've come close to him. I look stupid running to the court with an Easy Rider LP & Monkees Head LP I already had signed by the group (he wrote the film). I snuck onto The Burbank Studios in '80 and walked into a stage where Sissy was rehearsing....I ran out into the woods behind it and came onto The Waltons house in a clearing. I used to get Farrah in '83 after Pier concerts when her show let out a few blocks away. It made me sick all the actors that walked out I coulda had something signed.
glenn said on 17/Mar/07
yeah i try to get my vinyl done.i need to get my easy rider soundtrack done.fucked up big time,as fonda was just the photo with.forgot my album.and i want my shining done by king and friend got both of them in 48 hours.king by accident.on that album.what luck.i just picked up princess bride on vinyl tonight since robin is always around.i got sissy spacek 17 years ago by accident.never saw her again.i want her to sign the country album she had.and i want burt reynolds to sign his country album too.i got him on sharkeys machine soundtrack.
Brad said on 17/Mar/07
Rare vinyl is #1 for me to get signed. Soundtracks for the TV/movie stars except if they did an LP like Barbar Eden from '67. TV soundtracks are cool to get signed. I have the Munsters ones signed by all in person. I have a Twilight Zone '62 LP signed by 40 guest stars (and counting). 8x10's are so boring and dealer-ish. I saw one guy on the Sunset Strip with his trunk in alphabetical 8x10 order so he was ready to grab who was out & about. Those things are hard sell with all the fakes on eBay. Froman had a Manson stare with the blinking eyes that scared me. I saw Fester actually scare a young actress to run. All he had was a Sharpie & a card. Go to a NYC comic convention, it is Sheldonville....better yet a Star Trek Convention.
glenn said on 15/Mar/07
fester was the morning talk shows was sheldon.who is mentally not trying to be mean or funny there.
glenn said on 15/Mar/07
8x10 are played out.and celebs know your a dealer for sure with those.i do sell them great.but i prefer the rare vinyl.
glenn said on 15/Mar/07
thats kinda what i do brad.i mentioned something outside his acting actually,and the obscure movie is always good.uncle fester died 3 years ago.its sheldon that had me sign an index card.when these guys pass,their index cards go up for auction usually,and my autograph will be up for sale! geez.
Brad said on 15/Mar/07
What works is: say "I've always wanted to tell you..." and let it be some obscure role or performance or recording by the person that he or she will think about....or bring a really cool thing to get signed. Most of the actors or musicians or singers want what I want signed cause they don't have it. The 8x10 thing is so old!!! Fester with his index cards was sad.

[Editor Rob: this Fester guy, is he still roaming NY at nights, creeping on celebs...this is the guy who wanted glenn's auto once?]
dmeyer said on 15/Mar/07
when matt damon and denire are with the same shoes on they look only 1 incj diferance so 174 for deniro who was like 176 pushing 177 at peak and 177 for damon

[Editor Rob: maybe damon will finally come down a fraction, 177cm with 184cm webber...]
glenn said on 12/Mar/07
he usually tries to ignore or walk away from someone asking for a photo or autograph.i always have something to say that perks his ears.
PC said on 11/Mar/07
I agree dmeyer, he looked tall in "Meet the fockers", but next to Stiller and Hoffman I guess that's expected. Surprised he looks 5'8" range these days, I would have guessed peak height 5'10", 5'9" now.
J. said on 4/Mar/07
Well, he must be nice enough to actually agree to pose. Is he nasty? Or just kinda shortish?
dmeyer said on 4/Mar/07
in that fockers movie he towerd over stiller and hofman and he had very flat shoes so 5'8.5 no less also since he is 60 he might have loose more than 1 cm so he was 176 at peack i think at 40 some people loose 0.5 in some dont loose at all at 50 most people loose about 0.5 in and at 60 most people loose 0.75 to 1 in and after that you can loose a lot
glenn said on 3/Mar/07
chris-deniro is actually very unfriendly.rarely poses.yet i always get him too.and guys he was also listed at 5-10 back in the day.and i think he was.looked it to me.he is still 5-9.
the shredder said on 3/Mar/07
5'9 peak , 5'8 now ... fair deal !
Mario said on 3/Mar/07
I don't know Lmeister, he can easy look 177cm in some his movie's, but when I see him next to Christopher Walken in the Deer Hunter (185cm peak height in my opinion), I see that was no more than 175cm.

The strange thing is that in that same movie he looks in the wedding scene almost as tall as John Cazale!
Lmeister said on 3/Mar/07
I'm pretty damn sure about the published peak height 5'9.5''. Nowdays a solid 5'8''...
Chris said on 3/Mar/07
He definitely seemed like a solid 5' 9" back in the day and and now 5' 8.5 seems about right. He actually did seem a bit taller than 5' 9" in the early 70's. (probably was because of how thin he was)

Glenn - What was DeNiro like when you met him? He's my favorite actor, and I'd love to meet him one day!
James said on 2/Mar/07
Looks roughley the same size as Ben Stiller who is 5ft6?
the shredder said on 22/Feb/07
Rob , although it may not be right to judge , but what height range can De Niro * LOOK * next to Hoffman ???? Meaning the tallest he has EVER looked ! Do you think he can pull off the 5'10 , 5'11 look ????????
JB said on 21/Feb/07
I am assuming Deniro must have used lifts in the film Heat since he only looked like 2 inches shorter than 6 foot and a half Val Kilmer?
Spence said on 15/Feb/07
Brando was 5'9 maybe slightly under
Deniro - 177 cm at peak now probaly 174
Pacino - 5'6 at peak 5'5 now
the shredder said on 14/Feb/07
What about Pacino ??? do you know what he claimed ??? I still don't see how you thought he was near 5'7 at his peak ! also Im back to thinking Brando was 5'10 !
the shredder said on 14/Feb/07
Rob , do you know what De Niro's height claim is ??? well , he did say he was ALOT taller then Pacino ! IMO I think Pacino is no taller then 5'5 today and was only a tad taller at his peak !

[Editor Rob: not directly but in 80's definitely described 5ft 10, sometimes 155lbs, where they got that from, maybe deniro himself]
Stiffelio said on 13/Feb/07
I'd say De Niro now struggles with 5'8". Have you guys seen his picture next to Matt damenon at the recent Berlin Film Festival? Damon looks almost 3 in taller than De Niro.
Antron said on 10/Feb/07
um, shredder, the Raging Bull clip is utterly unhelpful. The shots always have one or the other guy in the foreground (looking over their shoulder), or sitting also never see their feet, nice try i guess
the shredder said on 24/Jan/07
Rob , do you think he was EVER 5'10 ??? well , I did find this ... De Niro claiming to be MUCH TALLER then Al Pacino ! ...

"Al, over the years we've taken roles from one another. People have tried to compare us to one another, to pit us against each one another and to tear us apart personally. I've never seen the comparison frankly. I'm clearly much taller, more the leading-man type. Honestly, you just may be the finest actor of our generation - with the possible exception of me."
Robert.R said on 21/Jan/07
Doesn't look any difference in height between him and Glenn in either picture, if anything Glenn just shades it.
Lmeister said on 18/Jan/07
Maybe you could upgrade his peak height to 5'9.5'' since there is a lot of evidence that he was close to 5'10'' in his youth.
Spence said on 13/Jan/07
That is terrible evidence he was a solid 177 at his peak.
Danimal said on 13/Jan/07
Pesci could have been a legit 5'5" in the late 70's when the movie was filmed.
the shredder said on 13/Jan/07
I doubt that De Niro was ever past 5 ft 9 ... check out the end of this video from Raging Bull where he is barefoot next to 5 ft 4 max Joe Pesci ( in normal dress shoes I guess ) !!!

Click Here

only looks 5 ft 8 - 5 ft 9 range to me ! unless Pesci had lifts ???????????
dmeyer said on 2/Jan/07
was possibly even 176 to 177 at peak

I disagree with the comment below that De Niro and Penn were the same height in We're No Angels. I thought De Niro was just taller than Penn. 5'9 looks right.
Anonymous said on 20/Dec/06
Guys get it through your head he was almost 5'10 in his youth and he is still probaly 5'9. I really believe he was about 178 cm at his peak. Maybe a touch under 5'10 at his peak. In Once Upon A Time In America 5'11 Woods doesn't appear that much taller.
Franco said on 6/Dec/06
since in the picture with Glenn i think De Niro had a tad bit taller shoes, IMHO de niro is exactly 5'8" today and was 5'9 when younger.

he should be downgraded.

Lmeister said on 15/Nov/06
De Niro did look 5'9.5'' in his youth for example in Taxi Driver. Nowadays closer to 5'8'' than 5'9''...
Glenn said on 20/Oct/06
I agree Spence.
Spence said on 19/Oct/06
In his prime he was close to 5'10. Nowadays def 5'8. But u guys undercut his height in his youth he was definitely close to 5'10. Watch Once Upon A Time In America Woods who is a def 5'11 isnt that much taller than Deniro. I say 5'9 1/2 in his prime.
Eugene said on 26/Sep/06
Judging from a few pictures he's probably 5' 8.5''------5'9.5''
That's the range of height
Daniel T said on 20/Sep/06
De Niro has the same height that SEAN PENN has in WE'RE NO ANGELS. And he look just a little taller than his 5'7 friend, HARVEY KEITEL.

5'8, no doubt.
Brad said on 17/Sep/06
Never met him but I'm told he really did a heel thing for "Casino". 5' 9" I guess.
APP said on 17/Sep/06
There's a scene in Ronin where he stands next to Sean Bean, both have a similar pose, and he looks no more than an inch shorter than him. He also looks about 4 - 4.5 inches shorter than Jean Reno in it.
Anonymous2 said on 4/Aug/06
Good pic Lmeister. 5'7.5" it is. But then Jolie's height can't be right either.

Bobby Milk is weird. This guy can look 5'10, sometimes shorter like 5'9 and even occasionally 5'8. I say it's weird 'cause I just watched one of my favorite movies the other night, Ronin, and De Niro looked a lot bigger in that movie than he normally does. He looked like a 5'11 or 6' guy. Yeah, the easy response is that he wore 'magic shoes' during the movie. I have my doubts he did 'cause he did quite a bit of running, walking, and other physical schtuff (for a guy his age) in that movie. Not that I think he's any taller than 5'10, I'm just sayin' this guy can be hard to peg.

DeNiro and Glenn seem to be the same height. Perhaps DeNiro has lost a few cms. and Glenn is still growing....both at 5' 8.5" thereabouts...

See, to me, now he looks 5 ft. 9 1/4, but at his peak 5ft. 10.

Here's him with 5 ft. 6 Kate Hudson. She is wearing very large heels and he is still about 1.5 - 2 inches taller than her. Click Here

There's a scene in Raging Bull where he's walking down a corridor with Joe Pesci and De Niro deffinetly looks 5 -6 inches taller than him.

Glenn said on 18/Mar/06
For once,I agree with you.not that I dont believe your other stories,but your dead on with gibson and deniro.

In the film The Last Tycoon DeNiro looked like a shrimp next to Bob Mitchum and Ray Milland, both six one. And when DeNiro stood next to and walked along with Dana Andrews he was definitely shorter. Andrews when he was young was never more than five ten. He wore obvious lifts in the film Laura so he wouldn't look like a shrimp next to six foot four Vincent Price and close to six feet Clifton Webb. I doubt DeNiro was ever more than five eight.

Evidently Deniro has shrunk. Deniro looks like he has dropped below that 5'8" mark next to Glenn in that second pic. In the first pic, Deniro had the height advantage over Glenn.
CoolJ said on 21/Jan/06
5'8.5" looks dead on to me.
Anonymous said on 21/Jan/06

Glenn said on 17/Jan/06

JUSTMATT said on 2/Jan/06
Looking Gleen photos I think De Niro is 173 cm but all depend on Gleen and Robert shoes
elio said on 2/Jan/06
DeNiro Looks to have about 1/2" on Glenn there... assuming he was wearing normal shoes the 5'8 1/2" is about right.
dmeyer said on 2/Jan/06
dificult to say who's taller on thing is sure that deniro is 5'9 at best
175cm16andgrowing said on 2/Jan/06
Glenn looks better than DeNiro in that pic. What does Glenn do actually?

Anyways, DeNiro is more like 5'8'' today.
