6ft 1in (185 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 2in (188 cm)
American Actor best known for roles in films such as Bonnie and Clyde, The Parallax View, Dick Tracy, Reds, Heaven Can Wait and Bugsy. in a book - The Life and Wild Times - the author mentioned that "Occasionally, the six-foot-one actor was known to wear lifts in his shoes and to pump up his arms lifting weights before scenes in which his biceps would show, not unusual among actors."

This is unexplainable. Watching the feature Promise Her Anything I was surprised to see Beatty hardly any taller than Keenan Wynn who is listed as being 5-10. And there were long shots showing the two men. Wynn was not wearing lifts.

Might be still be 186cm. Definitely 187-188cm peak
Sam said on 3/Aug/15
I think he looked no more than a cm shorter than Hackman IMO.

Rob, could we add a picture?
[Editor Rob: that is the plan for every page eventually. I think it's past half-way point now...]

he was shorter than gene hackman. 6'1 was most likely his peak height.

In Bonnie & Clyde
Warren Beatty - 6ft1¾(187cm)
Gene Hackman - 6ft2¼(189cm)

At the 1992 Golden Globes Awards (for 1991), I was surprised to see him looking taller than 6'2" Arnold Schwarzenegger, who presented him the award for Best Picture-drama for "Bugsy" if I'm not mistaken. So I'm thinking he must be 6'3". But looking through some of the old photos, especially that one next to 6'4" Chevy Chase, I'm going to say 6'1", maybe 6'1.5" peak height. We all now know Arnie isn't that tall. Not sure if he's (Warren) lost any height since hasn't really been in public or in movies for awhile. (FTR- Arnold- peak height 6'1.5", but more recently barely 6') At the GG for that year, could've just been the camera angles; who knows.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/15
Weird that looks 6ft1-2 in Bonnie & Clyde but more 6ft2-3 in Bugsy and Dick Tracey.
Brad said on 19/Oct/14
6' 2" peak. Madonna was on box with him.
Dave618 said on 6/Oct/14
I would say he is probably a full 6'2" in the AM, and about 6'1 and a half inch at supper time. Barefoot. He has been in some really good films. I enjoyed The Parallax View, Bugsy, Bullworth, and he was good in a little known film called Mickey One about a stand-up comic who is on the run from the Mafia. He is, or course, Shirley MacLaine's brother.
Sam said on 17/Jul/14
A genuine 6'2". I have mixed feelings on him, some of his movies I really enjoyed, but his vanity was overwhelming even for a movie star and, though obviously talented, he just didn't seem as good an actor as his friends like Nicholson and Hoffman. Might have enjoyed some movies of his as a director if he wasn't in them. Anyway, I still think it might have been interesting to see his interpretation of Bill in the Kill Bill films.
mister_lennon said on 4/May/14
i think that he was a weak 6'2 at peak. today, about a weak 6'1.
Arch Stanton said on 3/May/14
I've seen most of his films now and am convinced he was a legit 6'2" guy. He could look shorter when by himself but he consistently looked it compared to most and clearly looks it next to James Mason and Charles Grodin in Heaven Can Wait. I love the films he did with Julie Christie in particular. They had incredible chemistry.
Arch Stanton said on 2/May/14
Rob can you add Heaven Can Wait and Reds?
Arch Stanton said on 20/Mar/14
Claims 6'2 in the Parallax View. Looks shorter in it for some reason.

Mon said on 24/Dec/13
Never over 6'1''. He was known to wear lifts sometimes, even early on in his career according to a recent bio which in a section on his early days says he was 6'1''
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/13
I'm open to the possibility that Beatty might fall into 187-88cm group. There's quite a number of iconic movie stars from that period who were around 6ft2in. It was quite an impressive and striking height to be, almost to the same degree in which people perceive 6ft4in now.
said on 5/Nov/13
Beatty looked 188-89cm in Red and Dick Tracey. But, I think Arch has a point. Hackman edged him slightly in Bonnie & Clyde.
Rob, could Hackman have been maybe 6ft2.25in peak?
[Editor Rob: for every guy who is about 6ft 2 you'll have ones 1/4 inch above or below and they most likely wouldn't bother saying that and just go with 6ft 2 - hackman in his 30's I think was a solid enough 6ft 2 guy, a fraction over? Maybe.]
Arch Stanton said on 25/Oct/13
Rob can you add some more of his notable films like Heaven Can Wait, Reds, Dick Tracey, Bugsy and Bulworth? Looks 6'2" ish in Dick Tracey.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Sep/13
Looks 6'1.5-6'2" in Reds.
said on 28/Aug/13
Rob have you seen Bonnie and Clyde? Click Here
See 34-39, pause especially at 39:05 I think he looked a bit shorter than Hackman, looks more 6'1.5". There's obviously close but I think it's clear than Hackman is a bit taller?
[Editor Rob: they look pretty close, possibly beatty can look weaker 6ft 2]
said on 15/Apr/13
Been a while. Recent pic (early April 2013) of Beatty with Joe Montana, who supposedly is 6'2" like Beatty. Click Here
Looks just about right.

Nicole Kidman is 5'11. She was barefoot and barely looked smaller than legit 6'3 Will Ferrel in shoes in Bewitched. That gal is tall.

6' 2" peak, 6' 1.5" now. Great posture. Fierce dry humour.

I really think the difference in height between Hackman and Beatty is close to nothing. They're both around 6'2". Click Here Click Here
Mr. R said on 27/Nov/11
I think that Warren was closer to 6-2. When I saw him a few years ago, he was a solid 6-1.

i dont think he was 6'2" .. in bonnie and clyde he looked an inch shorter than jene hackman
Kiki said on 16/Nov/11
Warren is 187cm now. 190 in his prime.

I saw Warren a couple of years ago, and he is still standing tall. He is at least 6-1, and maybe a little taller than that. I was surprised.

Thanks, Jackie. Great picture collages and that's an interesting site, too. 5'8" for that guy looks about right.

I found a website of another guy who likes to pose with celebs (winks at Glenn!) Here's the url: Click Here
Scroll down and see his pic with Warren Beatty and compare for instance to those taken with Ed MacMahon and the guy who played Hercules on TV, both known to be tall people. It looks like the guy who posed with all the celebs is around your height, Glenn: 5'8". There's also a pic of him with Los Angeles Mayor, Antonio Villaragosa, who's in this pic with Warren Beatty: Click Here

Great pics, Jackie. Beatty looked 6`2 in his prime and still loos around that height nowadays.

glenn said on 20/Apr/07
lots of mysterys here on the site.glad to know i wasnt nuts all these years on that he can look that low.
George H. said on 19/Apr/07
Well, I saw them with my wife, kids, four relatives and a few friends. Party of 12 in total :) I guess he'll always be a mystery. But defintitely no lifts the times I saw him in Toronto or now in Vegas.
glenn said on 18/Apr/07
i saw him here over the course of 2 days.not friendly here in nyc anymore.im not getting into past this post.maybe he has a bizzare spine thinh going on.he was 6ft.and my friends witnessed it with me.
said on 18/Apr/07
Beatty in 2006 at the Sherman Oaks Little League field for a match of one of his kids, posing with B movie and horror/slash movie "actor" Willy Parsons (see his info at: Click Here
) They're both wearing sneakers.
bikagyura said on 15/Apr/07
seems like no one agrees with Beatty being 6' 2", but in these pictures he does look 6' 2" often enough... guess he gotta be a lifty.. I tend to trust Glenn on these ones... This guy is a tough one though
Anthony said on 10/Apr/07
It's possible Beatty shrunk. He also slouches a lot. I doubt he's under 6'1 today.
George H. said on 10/Apr/07
Hey Glenn! Where did you see him? We saw the whole Beatty family in Las Vegas about 10 days ago. Cirque de Soleil, or however the hell it is spelled. With Annette and the kids. Tall family. Those kids look like our kids when they were growing up (well, our youngest still kinda looks like that), all arms and legs. I gotta disagree with you again, Glenn. The guy is taller than me and was wearing those flat suede shoes. No way could he hide a lift in those. Also, his height is mostly in that huge head of his (I really can't get over the size of that nuggin. Seems to get larger each time I see it on a photo or "live") and his legs. I studied him for the brief moments I could and really, his upper legs/thighs are longer than the part below the knees, so I doubt he's wearing lifts, cos if he does, he's got seriously deformed legs. This time the whole Beatty parade passed us at a distance of about 5 ft. and were gawked at by everybody. The oldest daughter was not amused. Both Beatty and Bening seemed a bit embarrassed. They were all dressed casually.
glenn said on 5/Apr/07
just talked to my friends about beatty.they all laughed at anything over 6ft.
glenn said on 4/Apr/07
i hate to open up a can of worms again,and actually im not getting further into it after this post,but i finally bumped into beatty again last night,and yeah,guess what,6ft again.maybe he has the eastwood problem.no pics.maybe ill try again tonight.paparrazi irritated him.he is a another rumored lift wearer.maybe its cause of his drastic change of height.of course tonight i can guarentee he will be 6-3 with my luck.
George H. said on 28/Mar/07
Hey Jackie, if you're still posting here, I think some of your comments and pictures got erased too. Would be great if you could post them again.
Brad said on 5/Mar/07
6' 2" & 5' 8" are 100% accurate. Annette wears the 4-5 inch heels with Clyde Barrow. Don't kid yourself, Ford is a tall guy and I'm sure she has stealth lifts in her scenes as well as huge heels in shots with Ford where it is a close-up.
said on 18/Feb/07
Using Annette Bening (5'8") and her husband Warren Beatty (6'2") to establish a possible definite on Harrison Ford's height.
The movie Regarding Henry is of 1991. The photos I used of Annette and Warren range from 1998 (1), 2005 (1) and 2006 (all others). Click Here

from the Globes.
Yesterday's SAG awards (my wife downloaded these) curious pictures where Beatty's about Will Smith's height, yet taller than Jamie Foxx (though not as much as you'd expect, but then Beatty slouches a lot). The weird thing is that Foxx and Smith are about the same height in some of the pictures. Is Foxx a lift wearer?

said on 24/Jan/07
Found a clip in Spanish I think from Ishtar, haha. It's really a funny movie. Anyway, you can see the height difference between Beatty and Hoffman. It's also fun to see the difference in shoe size when they're filmed from the back, when they're hiding behind the car. I'd say Beatty's feet are about 1.5 times Hoffman's, haha. Click Here
Glenn said on 22/Jan/07
Jackie-wow,I had no clue you were that far.yep,photos and peoples bodies are decieving.classic example is rapper DMX,who is claimed to be and look 5-9, even to me,straighten out to 5-11 in my photos.and had no clue of it until I had it developed.I thought,great,everyone will think Im 5-6.luckily most noticed he looked near 6ft next to 6-3.5 Steven Seagal.mind boggling.
George H said on 22/Jan/07
Hi Jackie, yeah those photo sites suck. I prefer the ones who do post bigger pics but like you say with all their logos over them. Wireimage thumbnails are way small, can't hardly make them out in my old age haha.
The man has a seriously deceiving posture. I think I'll refer to it as at ease and up. In Toronto when he was standing at ease, so in a relaxed posture, he was about an inch taller than Irons. But when he stands up all the way, like the military stance, and stretches his neck, he can look about half a head taller. Totally weird. The guy is definitely his own species, haha.
said on 21/Jan/07
No, Glenn. Unfortunately it's been a long time since I was in the US. I now reside in Europe, The Netherlands to be exact. So that seriously diminishes my chances of coming across any interesting (US) celebs, unless they're visiting for a movie premiere or something. But then they'd have to be interesting enough for me to haul myself to that venue, LOL.
Thanks George, for the photos, even if they are thumbnails. Don't you just hate those sites like WireImage? I know I do. Other photo agencies are a bit more generous, they just stamp their logo all across the photos, lol. I've found two bigger ones without any logo:
Click Here Click Here
Of course the first one is more reliable, being a full length shot. In the second one Beatty is bending backwards and has his head down to read the award, while Hanks is standing straight as a rod with his head tilted up. But then we all know by now that if Warren can look the same height as Renee Zellweger (or Glenn for that matter - waving to Glenn) that photos are not always to be trusted.
dmeyer said on 19/Jan/07
in some hanks looks 1.25 shorter than betty and some 2 inches so hanks can look 183 to 185 he alwais looks that in pics within 2 cm he never apears 5'11 and never 6'2 so his footwear is normal like me i have a friends who is 6'2 sometimes i look 2.5 in shorter and sometimes 1.5 it is easy to play 1 inch with military posture wish hanks have
dmeyer said on 17/Jan/07
he looks 2 in taller than hanks easy for one time hanks dosnt loook over 183 cm
Glenn said on 16/Jan/07
George-yes,Paris is soft spoken but flashes her wares.I forgot about Elvis.what I meant was,is that I know you and I met Beatty cause thats an accurate discription.
Anthony said on 16/Jan/07
I agree that he did look only 6'1 at The Golden Globes, but in his prime he was definitely a solid 188-189. In all his films, he was pretty much solidly bigger than everyone else and looked massive next to small to average sized people. I'm surprised to see him look 6' max next to Glenn, proof that photos don't always give an accurate judge of height. I do remember he slouched a bit in photos I've seen of him with shorter people (Hoffman, for example). Thought he was really funny last night at The Golden Globes.
Viper said on 16/Jan/07
If hes lost any height, its no more than an inch.
AA said on 15/Jan/07
He seems 6'1" tops in Golden Globe Awards right now... I'msure he has lost some inches...
George H said on 15/Jan/07
Thanks, Glenn. I wouldn't call Paris HIlton shy, the way she shows off her you know what. Perhaps she just has a soft voice. Elvis wasn't an Aries, born Jan. 8th. That's quite a number of shy celebs, though.
What proves we met him, Glenn? I think I missed something :)
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
That also prooves we met him George! so,Jackie,I take it you dont live near Malibu?
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
Yes,George,there are actually a good few of them.funny ,I just realised they are Aries like myself.Beatty,Gary Oldman,Eddie Murphy, Ewan Mcgregor and Steven Seagal,who I share the same birthday with,are all soft spoken,shy and polite,like myself(unless we are pissed).other,non Aries,that are shy and or soft spoken are Paris Hilton,Renee Zellweger(sp?),Johnny Depp,Robert Deniro,Sean Penn(surprise),and sometimes,Al Pacino and Harrison Ford.
George H said on 11/Jan/07
Thanks Glenn and Jackie. I guess we saw it right, then, about him coming across as shy. Glenn, is that a thing that happens more often? That stars are shy? I know Elvis Presley is said to have been quite shy, too. Do you ever notice that with other stars, and if so, who were shy in your opinion?
George H said on 11/Jan/07
Well, my wife asked her friend if she remembered Beatty's height. Her memory is kinda unspecific, just that he was quite tall. The thing that she remembered most was that he had HUGE hands with very long fingers. Okay, I don't know if that's another variation on the theme that women like to say: if a guy has big ....... (hands, feet, nose, whatever) his ..... is equally big. The guy did have a reputation of being a womanizer when he was young, so who knows, haha.
Jackie said on 10/Jan/07
Funny that you should mention Warren coming across as shy! In my collection you can see an almost 50-50 devision (sp) between journalists either thinking of him as arrogant or as (extremely) shy!
With the internet giving us so much more access to a bigger variety in sources, I've found that the earlier harsher opinions on Beatty seem to have shifted to an impression of him really being more shy than arrogant. I do know he was on Larry King back in the early nineties, who referred to him as extremely shy and I think also Jay Leno (or perhaps another talkshow host) said the same.
Beatty's main residence is in California, Malibu I believe. He lives there with his wife and kids and has his offices there. Of the people that I know who met him, two saw him in New York. One saw him in the early eighties when he was still dating Diane Keaton. She went to a night store to get some groceries and found a big hubbub of people there. They turned out to be papparazi following Keaton and Beatty who were shopping for groceries in that tiny little shop!!! She says she remembers them looking rather unkemped and - yes- tall! LOL (But she's only 5 ft. herself, so almost everybody looks tall to her).
Another stood in an elevator with him, also in the 1980's. She is 5'3" and as far as she could remember his shoulders were about her eye level, but she can't remember what kind of shoes she was wearing.
My cousin, about my height, encountered him a few years back in LA. She stood in a pizza/deli place and didn't notice him until she heard his distinct voice ordering pizza, right next to her. He had one or two of his kids with him and she was amazed he just walked around "in the wild" being a real dad with his kids. She only mentioned he wore jeans and sneakers and still refers to him as a "big guy", though not "big" as in "fat". I don't think she was able to notice anything else because she was so exited and she's about as much a fan as I am! :)
Glenn said on 9/Jan/07
Geez,I finally saw your Penn/Beatty pic.Penn looks 5-6 there.I was talking to Penn 3 weeks ago and I was surprised to see he looked 5-7,not the 5-8 I remembered.yes,Beatty was shy,but very,very sweet the many times I met him between 1990-1994.never saw him again.I heard of this mythic apartment he has or had here,yet nobody sees him.in fact,I think he still resides there, as I just remembered I was there outside, 3 years ago! duh.where else does he live?
George H said on 8/Jan/07
Glenn, did he come across as a bit shy to you? My wife and I and our friends got that impression when we saw him. I mean, he was doing the red carpet thing and everything. He was interacting with people and talking, gesturing and smiling. But he gave us the idea that he was shy. My wife swears she saw him blush a few times as he went down the line of people asking for autographs. I couldn't see that, cos by then I'd moved back. A new friend, that my wife met on a forum, bumped into him in the 1980's in LA. She also said he seemed shy, because he apologized profusely to her and blushed when he helped her pick up her stuff. She didn't mention his height, that I know of. Have to tell my wife to ask her if she remembers, haha.
Glenn said on 8/Jan/07
Jackie-he is a bit reclusive.I dont hear of too many sightings.where did your friends meet him? west coast or east?
Jackie said on 7/Jan/07
Thank you. Best wishes for you and your wife (the one with excellent taste in movie stars heehee) too. Good to see you back.
No, I personally have not been so lucky (yet) to meet Mr. Beatty, but I do know some people with first hand accounts. Since they're all around my height and shorter (I'm 5'5") they were quite impressed and surprised by his size/height.
George H said on 3/Jan/07
Back from a well deserved vacation, if I do say so myself :) Happy New Year everybody! Thanks, Jackie. A very special, great New Year to you, too! Fantastic pic finds, by the way. Wow, Katzenberg is like a midget! Tiny guy at the helm of a huge company, how ironic.
Glenn said on 31/Dec/06
Thank you too Jackie.interesting pics.the man clearly hunched with me being short I guess.I think I met Mikeal,and I think he was 5-8.Beatty is rarely in the city.yet,he lives here.speak to you soon. oh,dumb question,did you ever meet Beatty?
said on 31/Dec/06
Happy New Year to you, too. Thanks for your wishes. Only the best for you, too. Hopefully you'll be able to bump into Mr. Beatty again, one of these days, who knows?
I tried to blow up several of these thumbnails, some worked, but some were just too tiny.
Anyway, Renee Zellweger differed about as much with Beatty as 5'1" Natalie Wood (though wearing high heels in this one) did in this picture: Click Here
Warren Beatty in 2004 with Mikael Barishnikov (sp) the ballet dancer (don't know his height. Might be around 5'6"). You can see how Beatty often slouches when near shorter people.

Beatty in 1998 with 5'1" Rosie Perez.
Seems consistent with 2004 Beatty with equally short Alyssa Milano (might even be in heels, considering the event)

Or with another 5 ft-ish beauty, Selma Hayek in 2006 (I know she always wears quite high heels and platform shoes):

Warren a few years back with good friend Halle Berry:
I found another version of the Katzenberg/Beatty photo I posted earlier. This one isn't cropped and there is a third (unknown to me) person in it. At least, I THINK it's the same photo, may be taken a second later or earlier. Sorry for the quality, it was a tiny thumbnail that I enlarged. First the one I posted before, next the uncropped one.

George H., if you're still here: happy New Year to you, too!

In the case with Renee,you see how photos play tricks on you.even my pic.
Glenn said on 25/Dec/06
Jackie-MERRY XMAS! yes,Warren could even be 6-3 for all I know.but whenever I saw him,he appeared 6ft.5.6ftish.obviously the guy has weird posture.take care Jackie and I hope your new year is great!
Glenn said on 25/Dec/06
As I said in another post yesterday,people always ignore my photo proof.thanks for backing me that Beatty,even if he is 6-2,can look shorter.
said on 10/Dec/06
This is a photo of circa 2002 of 6'2" Warren with 5'10"-ish Kevin Spacey. I don't know who the lady is.
This is with Disney's Jeffrey Katzenberg (I think he's still with Disney, right?). I had no idea he was that short. They really are both standing on the same level! But I found another picture of them together where you can see, even though Warren is sitting and Jeffrey is standing, that the size difference between the two is quite big! (picture 2)
George H said on 25/Oct/06
Jackie: wow, his inseam is over 2" longer than mine. Maybe my head is even longer than his hahahaha. Thanks on behalf of my wife. You take about as much stuff with you as she does, and she also tends to forget the most important things (camera). Never mind. Great items. Hold on to those. William Daniels was Kitt's voice? Wow.
Jackie said on 22/Oct/06
I had to drop my S.O. off at the airport, so on my way back I could visit our storage. It took me a while to find the clothes in there, had to move some of our stuff, but I finally succeeded.
I wrote it down because of course I forgot to take my cell phone with camera with me (can you imagine? I took some sandwiches, something to drink, my tape measure, a pen, my cell phone but that turned out to be my MP3 player!). Anyway, the shirt is, if I deciphered it correctly 42LL and the pants were just L. Only the pants had a clear note in it with the date (June 1973, I always thought The Parallax View was filmed in 1974), his name and I suspect a scene number or something like that. The shirt only had his name in it and the size label. I did measure the inseam of the pants and they were almost 36", between 35.5 and 36.
I hope your wife can calm down now :)
Oh and William Daniels played in The Parallax View with him and also in Reds. But I guess he was best known for his parts as the voice of Hasselhoff's car in Knightrider and for playing that nasty doctor in St. Elsewhere. Does that ring a bell?

Padraig, who is Tiger?
[Padraig: Please Ignore me, I'm just ranting about things I shouldn't since I'm only temporarily in charge :=)
Most of Tiger's posts were nonsense but Rob hasn't deleted them. A little like how I should delete the dumbdude's postings.]
George H said on 19/Oct/06
Jackie, my wife is getting seriously frantic about Beatty's clothes sizes. Any luck yet?
[Padraig: WTF. I just spent 25 minutes reading through this entire thread.
Sometimes I think the Editor is way too LENIENT on this website. I know he let that Tiger moron continually post, even when half of the shit he spewed out of his childish gob was utter drivel.]
Brad said on 12/Oct/06
The 5' 10" Cindy by Beatty ices it fer me: he's 6' 2" legit.
George H said on 11/Oct/06
Jackie: more good photo material :) But who is William Danials? Did you get to read the labels on Beatty's clothes yet? I'm curious, but my wife is close to exploding rofl. You envy us for meeting him. She envies you for having wardrobe he physically wore!
Viper652 said on 10/Oct/06
Now, how can Beatty be 6-2 when he is shorter than 6-2 Gene Hackman.
Jackie said on 2/Oct/06
Yes, they came with sort of notes of authenticity as far as there being labels in them or on them with his name and the date they were used. I believe the name of the movie were on them too. I'll have to check, also for the size, because we don't have them at the house but in storage.
I'll see when I have time to go there and get back to you, LOL.
George H said on 28/Sep/06
Jackie, thank you:) And good for you on not spending too much on your collection. I mean, a hobby is great, as long as it don't put you in the poor house (yes my wife is reading over my shoulder as I type, hint hint rofl).
Those are great pieces, though. IF you'd ever put them on e-bay you could make a fortune, though not from my wife if I have a say in it! Is there a proof of authenticity? Is there a size label in it? Great stuff.
said on 28/Sep/06
Great posts you made, all of them. And you're right of course. I have one of the pairs of jeans and a white shirt he wore in The Parallax View that a crew member got (I don't know if it was obtained legally, LOL). I'm very fortunate to have gotten them, for nothing, through a chain of coincidences that connected several people around me to that person, about five years ago.
I found an article of 1978 online:
I don't spend much money on my collection at all, certainly not compared to fans of artists like, say, Elvis who truly spend a fortune, annually to try and obtain everything of their favorite star. The most expensive pieces of my collection are the books, and most of those I got through E-bay, so really cheap, LOL. I guess I'm lucky he doesn't have many fans!
Viper652 said on 27/Sep/06
George, I think Beatty was 6-1 at his peak and is now 6-0.
Gotxo said on 27/Sep/06
As i said Hackman next to a young Ford looked not more than 188cm, i still think he can be marginally taller like a 189 but no more.
Be realistick, my photo is a promo pic of the film and Beatty is not slouching at all, instead of that Hackman is really a bit sided to reach comfortably the much lower Estelle Parson's shoulder.
To End with Hackman he dind't look 6'3" compared to a 6'4" Crhistopher Reeve, so the range for him is 6'2"-6'2.5" and he's still more than 1cm taller than Beatty.
As Frank2 said he's allready tall at 6'1"
Mario said on 27/Sep/06
I tottaly agree with George H. It's damm obvious that he was at least 6 ft 2 when he was young.
George H said on 27/Sep/06
Jackie: I guess not. Well, we know what we saw. We've been surfing the web to find any press photos of that day where perhaps we can discover ourselves in the
crowd, preferably with Beatty and Annette in the shot, but so far no luck.
So, the man has no fanclub? I'll tell my wife. Maybe you and her should get together and start one, haha, I'll be an honorary member, haha. Sounds like quite the collection you've got there. What are these "original pieces" you mentioned? Must have cost a bundle! My wife has old scrapbooks, a few videos that she's now replacing with DVD's and a few books on him. She got a big kick out of the fact that he was so nice and humble, contrary to what those old magazine articles in her scrapbooks said of him. :) I think he was a hoot in Bulworth (my wife's latest buy) and Halle Berry was (and is) HOT! Not many guys his age are as lucky to be playing with all those beauties! :)
George H said on 27/Sep/06
Gotxo: Take a good look at that picture.
Look at Beatty's and Hackman's shoulders. Look at their legs, how Hackman's are
straight and Beatty is standing in a slouch, leaning on his left leg, with his
right knee bent. You go stand in front of a mirror and alternate your body
posture between that of Hackman and of Beatty respectively in this pic.
There's easily an inch difference when you change position between Beatty's pose and Hackman's pose.
Look at how Beatty's neck and head are bending down and how Hackman is looking straight, head up.
Then look at the ground. The angle is such that Beatty seems to be standing
slightly lower than Hackman. Compare to where Estelle Parson's head comes up to
both Hackman and beatty's chins, taking into consideration that Beatty is
looking down and Hackman is looking straight forward.
I'm not saying that Hackman isn't 6'2".
I'm saying that Beatty is definitely 6'2".
I can't comment on Hackman, other than that in the movie Bonnie & Clyde, so not
in this promotion photo, he is exactly Beatty's height during most of the movie.
As far as your assumption that it's weird how I speak of Beatty's height,
because he's only one inch taller than me.
REad back my posts, if you will. The reason why his height, AND the fact that
he is taller than me surprised me, is that I never knew he was tall, period.
I thought of him somewhere in the Redford or Newman range. Don't ask me why,
I just had that image of him.
Since we met him face to face, my wife has ordered many of his movies on DVD and it turns out he's easily the tallest man in most of his movies.
Also, and that's why I asked your height and if you'd met him, in my line of
work it's proven that the closer a person is to somebody in height, the closer their estimate of that other person's height is. I.e., a 5'5" will under or over guess a 6'0" person's height more than a 5'10" person. I'm certain at my 6'1", also taking into consideration the footwear we were wearing when I met
him, that Beatty easily was 6'2".
Jackie said on 27/Sep/06
Never mind. You're not going to change people's opinions, even if they're wrong. Apparently your personal encounter with Beatty or the photo material I provided (or you, thanks for pointing me to that site by the way) don't count, because we attach the "wrong" height to them.
I don't know of any Beatty fanclub. I got most of my personal collection through E-bay and some original pieces through a few chance encounters with people who either worked with him or knew him in some other capacity. All of them say he's 6'2", or referred to him as tall or big. I also got a lot of the internet stuff from the site you pluck a lot of your pictures from as well :)
Viper652 said on 26/Sep/06
Honestly, Beatty has always looked no more than 6-0 to me. At least in my lifetime.
Gotxo said on 26/Sep/06
You could say that i might be wrong but my argument really makes sense wether you like it or not.
Also two other persons of this forum have met him and reported other height and i think of them as witted and aware of their senses too.
You talk as 6'2" as quite tall, but that's an inch over your height, i do not consider people a single " over mine so tall as you do.
You still avoid to comment in my photho, wich wether is small shows Hackman and Beatty both in a level ground and in a full body shot, two conditions that most photos of jackie doesn't fulfill.
That's denying a big evidence, plus if in your opinion hackman is not over 6'2" then an clearly smaller Beatty can't be that height.
George H said on 26/Sep/06
Jackie: you really did find a great one again. Freeman is another guy I didn't figure to be as tall as he is. One more great example. My wife is slowly coming to the realization that Beatty's head is kinda, how to put it politely, grand haha. She wants me to ask you if you know there's a Beatty fanclub somewhere.
George H said on 26/Sep/06
Gotxo. I'm sorry man, but your argument doesn't make sense. I'm an honest man, but according to you I am not capable of figuring from a distance of ONE foot if a person is an inch taller than I am.....That's dumb. My wife saw it too, as did our hosts. I think besided being an honest person, I'm aware enough of my senses to be able to distinguish between me looking up at somebody or looking down at somebody. He was taller than me, I'm big enough a guy to be able to take that :) He didn't differ as much with me in height as my sons do, so I know he's not anywhere near 6'4.5"-6'5", but I do KNOW he's 6'2", easy.
Hackman I don't know, haven't met him. Is for certain 6'2" like Beatty, could have been a bit taller, but not an inch. Certainly not in Bonnie & Clyde. Like I said before: it wasn't due to camera angles. If that were the case, Hackman wouldn't cock his neck and head up to look Beatty in the eyes in several scenes, some of which have been posted on this page.
Gotxo said on 25/Sep/06
My only doubt is about Hackman's height, in most of scenes of B&C he and Beatty are same height mostly due to camera angles.
I think that in the pic i posted both men are full-body shot, the ground is even and still that Hackman is bowing a bit, a Beatty with a hat on his head is still smaller. So Beatty has two advantages Hacknman lacks and still is some cm smaller.
With so a blatant prove i can't wonder how you still mantain both are same height.
So for my part Hackman is doubtless taller, wich his height is?
Well he normally looks taller than his official 6'2", but again, i rewatched yesterday "The conversation" and a young Ford (slightly over 6') is not more than 1.5" or 2" smaller.
So yeah! I could give Gene an extra 0.5", not much more.
Even though, that makes a shy of 6'2" Beatty not a full one.
Conclusion, if Hackman isn't over 6'2" Beatty is not 6'2".
I think you're an honest man, but you could be wrong too.
So i'm a bit exceptical on your report, not by your sincerity.
George H said on 25/Sep/06
Gotxo: No, you don't need to meet him to comment him. But it would help. The reason why I asked is because you said you could ADMIT Hackman's height could be higher than 6'2". That's what I find a very weak type of reasoning for somebody who has not met, stood next to or at least has been close enough physically to give an estimate, or a guess even, based on real life size.
At least Glenn has said in his more recent answers to Jackie about the stars (in this case Beatty) in his pictures: "photos can be tricky due to posture,footwear,street levels,hidden lifts and weird angles."
So, from his eyewitness point of view, at least there's some room for correction.
I can't comment on Hackman's height from personal experience. BUT: I CAN comment on Beatty's height from personal experience and can testify that for sure, he cannot be 6'1", because that's MY height, and he was taller in flat, liftless, shoes, than me in worn down boots. I had to look up from 6'1", making me estimate him from a foot distance at 6'2". From that eyewitness estimate, I can understand that to those who wish to believe, or claim from THEIR personal meeting with Hackman, that Hackman could be slightly taller than Beatty. However, I do NOT get that from the movie Bonnie & Clyde, in which Beatty and Hackman are the same height in roughly 85% of the scenes they share and the rest of the percentage is equally divided between Beatty being slightly taller or Hackman being slightly taller, on level ground (though the bankrobbery scene may have level ground, but is shot from a lower, skewed, angle).
Conclusion: I KNOW Beatty is not my height, that he is easily taller than that. I am certain he is 6'2", based on that personal, close-up, meeting. I can understand that there are many people out there who for some reason can't or won't believe Beatty's that tall, or that he could be Hackman's height. I can't make a statement on Hackman's height, not having met him personally, but I can say that based on Bonnie & Clyde, Hackman and Beatty differ close to nothing in height.
George H said on 25/Sep/06
Jackie: again, those are interesting and telling pictures. Makes me seriously wonder about Redford's height. Did you notice he seems to have a rather large head, too? :) Or maybe it's just the hair, I don't know. What was the title of that movie again? Wasn't he a spy or something? And Penn looks young enough to pass for Beatty's son! Great stuff.
George H said on 25/Sep/06
Gotxo: When did you meet Beatty again? I forgot. And what is your own height?
I KNOW he was taller than me and I AM - like I said an annoying number of times before rofl - a legit 6'1". I never met Hackman, but I've got eyes, and in most scenes in Bonnie & Clyde they're the same height and sometimes Beatty has the advantage on LEVEL ground, and Hackman on the slope outside.
George H said on 18/Sep/06
dmeyer: you're right. As a matter of fact, Beatty wasn't only 6'2" in his prime, he still is that height, trust me. I've met him and I'm a legit 6'1" (am
measured regularly for my check-ups for my job) and I had to look up at him when he was wearing normal, liftless, shoes. Big, nice, guy.
George H said on 18/Sep/06
Jackie: again my compliments for excellent photo proof. I've watched Bonnie & Clyde again over the weekend. I hadn't even noticed the slope is so big that the car rolls back, you're absolutely right! It's also clear to see that Hackman looks up to Beatty in the scene where they have their serious talk. That has nothing to do with any camera angle, that has everything to do with Hackman's neck and head looking UP at Beatty.
There's only one scene where Hackman actually looks bigger, and that's when they rob a bank, but they're several feet apart from each other and the camera angle there is a bit off.
Gotxo said on 17/Sep/06
He might be over 6'1" but definatly not a full 6'2", look at the last link i posted. In that bunch shot Hackman is noticeable taller than Beatty in spite the late is wearing a hat. That film was shot in 1967, when Beatty was 30 (exactly), so doubtfully could have he shrunk as early as that.
dmeyer said on 17/Sep/06
waren realy looks 188 at peak

This is the same picture but in colour:

i seen some pic of him taken in 80s with 168 dustin hoffman.. warren was a head tower over hoffman.. if hoffman stills hold on 168 tall.. warren were at least 192(6ft3.5)..
Stephen said on 15/Sep/06
Beatty was right at 6'1". Gene Hackman looked clearly an inch taller than him in "Bonnie and Clyde".
Brad said on 13/Sep/06
I've never met him. I dated a singer he dated later on in '82. Went to a dump called Chase Club in NYC to see Duran Duran. For somebody around 70 he sure wants to get that gun out and mow down The Mole.
George H said on 13/Sep/06
Wow, a guy goes for a vacation to come back to this! :)
Jackie, I totally get you. Excellent points and well articulated and perfect picture proof material. You don't happen to work in law enforcement, do you? haha. The stuff you submitted could win a case. You're right. It's weird how the 8 inches (or 9 depending if you put Hoffman at 5'6" or 5'5") between Beatty and Hoffman don't add up in the pictures of them individually with 5'8" Glenn.
Glenn, like Jackie, this is NOT a personal attack on you, just an observation.
Hoffman would be either 2 or 3 inches shorter than Glenn. Beatty would be 6 inches taller than Glenn. Yet in his pics, Glenn looks about 1 inch - maybe 2 taller than Hoffman and only one or two shorter than Beatty. Where are the missing inches??? I've never seen Beatty look that short in any pics, and he certainly didn't look that short when I saw him, in liftless, low cut, flat shoes.
Judging from the photo at the top of this page, I think that's about as much as I differed with him in September 2004, and I'm 6'1" in bare feet. I still regret we weren't allowed to take pictures. Get this: if we'd stood a bit further away from the press photographers, we COULD have taken photos. But where we were standing, only professionals were allowed to shoot their cameras, go figure! :( (My wife is still very annoyed about that, people 10 feet down the line were shooting their cameras like crazy).
So, Jackie, kudos to you for your excellent observations and photos in you posts.
Brad: you got me confused. Your earlier post had me thinking you'd already met Beatty, yet in your last posts I get the feeling he's still on your list of celebs you wish to meet?
Brad said on 10/Sep/06
I wanna meet Beatty. I wanna meet Hoffman again, been decades. He needs to do another play. I hope Beatty does Dick Tracy 2. I wanna see him fire that gun again wearing that funky raincoat. He's the man with the plan. Beatty rocks.
Gotxo said on 10/Sep/06
Yeah and my father is a cop and arrest yours, bah!
Maybe some day you'll be someone by yourself and by meeting a famous you don't get nothing of his grandeur.
Brad said on 6/Sep/06
Chase Club '82 NYC. Hey man,my father was V.P. of Playbill Magazine. I met plenty since '57 and Monroe at age a day or two. Glenn meets a lot to get signatures and make some coin. Beatty is 6' 2".
Gotxo said on 2/Sep/06
We can return to Beatty's height anytime you like.
On that if he's 6'2" (wich i can belive it), the Hackman might be at least half an inch taller than that. Or maybe beaty is shy of 188cm (186-187).
On the other question i only reposted your words without changing a single comma, there's no analisys at all.
I't seems that you've done the same as your last post is a copy of the previous,
identical error on my nick included, if you don't like your own result mind what you write.
Jackie said on 1/Sep/06
For the last time: I don't know how much more armchair psychology and analyses about me you think you need to fill this page with. It doesn't change the fact that your opinion about me is TOTALLY WRONG.
Gotxo said on 31/Aug/06
My interpretative skills are OK, don't worry.
Fortunately here's no door & anyone can enter here and express his/her opinion.
As much as for height comments (A 6'2" Beatty? Quite possible, i had him an inch less, now i'm considering i was wrong) as for Meta-comments or comments on other comments. Which has a big deal on this site success.
I did the late but not using psichology at all, but a basic knowledge of words.
Your post are crammed with words as "science,"expertise" ,"doctored","law")
is you the attracted one for the academical world an the one who assings it power.
Your language is full of courtesy forms ("You're welcome",civilized ,Excuse me? ) wich do not fit well with the message lying in the bottom:
"I am beginning to wonder if Glenn's personal preference for certain celebs is coloring his opinion on their heights"
Wow, that's not polite! It's to question someone's integrity/sincerity!
Well, Glenn is not perfect, but don't deserve that.
You're fond of absolute concepts as "show the truth,and big numbers "tons of others ", "Too many photos","many pictures", bigger numbers doesn't imply more reason.
Quoting you "request to him and to others to use their logic and see that simply because someone contributes many pictures of "me and celeb x" doesn't make his word law"
Well i think i've showe the use of logic in my opinions here and in other posts,
i might be wrong,but my conclusions are based on it. And i don't take Glenn's word as law but as a valuable point of view, others exist too.
Jackie said on 31/Aug/06
I only have one thing to say to you: your interpretive reading skills could use improvement. You are assuming things about me and my messages to Glenn, that are wrong in every possible way. Please leave your armchair psychology and analyses of me and my messages to Glenn at the door. You really could not be more wrong about me, my intentions and my opinion about Glenn than you have stated
Glenn said on 31/Aug/06
Again your support means everything to me Gotxo.thank you.
Gotxo said on 30/Aug/06
Quite simple, Glenn's photos look odd simply because he's the protagonist in them, not the star. Their goal is proving an encounter with a famous one.
So he must be as recognizable as the star, both faces must receive proper light, be near of each other & centered in the frame, whatever their heights are.
Thus in many ocassions, if the guy's a tall one looks only 3" taller than Glenn or 2" smaller (mostly for women). It's common sense, had it been the reality depicted as result Glenn should pension off his photographer mate.
(Glenn+Manute Bol belt or Glenn+Devito calp...Got it? )
Things can be said at many levels, one of them is the subconscious.
You've expressed what i said, you diminished Glenn's authority in the matter doing so with the quality of his pics.
Under the apparent kindness of your post lies enmity disguised as politenes.
Now you've posted a set of photos of Isthar, wich you think will pove your intellectual superiority on Glenn and wait for a reply you think is not possible or implies resignation to your ideas (Nasty).
Nope i don't excuse you, & i don't need invitation, Glenn is a "De facto" star here and i comment on him.
Glenn said on 30/Aug/06
Thanks Gotxo.you meant well.
Glenn said on 30/Aug/06
I meant maybe you would next think my photos were faked Jackie.clearly that isnt your opinion.I might be off an inch with alot of names,and maybe a few with Beatty.but I am the law when it comes to Sly and Colin.at least as close youd get with Sly.any other names feel free to debate and tell me Im wrong.cause unlike others that wont admit it,I might be mistaken.however,many will agree my pics and insight are beneficial to the site.your perception of photos I may not agree on.so far,I dont see the same exact veiwings you see.I get your point,and it makes sense to a degree,but comparing me with Hoffman and Beatty and seeing similiar heights is silly to me with all due respect.perception is one factor I left out last post.feel free to continue intelligent banter.if others were of the same ilk,there would be no hostility.and no worries,I always believe in class with a woman.rarely do I get hostile with a Lady.thank you for your time.
Jackie said on 30/Aug/06
? Excuse me? I did NOT suggest AT ALL that Glenn's photos are fake. Where the heck did you get that from? I only asked him if he didn't find it odd that in all his pics with Beatty/Hoffman etc. respectively they all seemed to differ the same amount with Glenn. That's something totally different. You, on the other hand, are suggesting that I am questioning Glenn as a source, which is not the case. I only wonder what HE thinks about those celebs who are proven to be of complete different sizes, looking about the same size in pics with him. Glenn knows I'm not "flaming" him, and I think he's man enough to be able to stand up for himself whenever he is being flamed. Since that is NOT the case here, I think it's better when Glenn answers for himself, which he didn't seem to mind before.
Gotxo said on 30/Aug/06
You hint that Glenn photos are fake, it's your opinion but you lack the sincerity to express it openly.
Well, Glenn photos are many times as deceiving as the ones you may found on 'tmedia. The thing is Glenn has met them personaly, and doesn't make his judgement on the star heights based in his own photos, but in the personal encounter he had. He might fail sometimes as is a subjective point of view, but i think most of it is reasonably accurate, also the personal disliking (or opposite) doesn't slant his opinion, as many times he has not save a single inch from an asshole that treated him badly.
Memmory can fail all of us sometimes, but Glenn is not precisely a guy with a bad one, he render us a lot of profuse details of the meeting most of ocassions.
To end with, his height is out of discussion, he's on the 5'8" mark, he also has suffered the 'celeb' process as has been compared to too many people as
the photo shows.
Conclusion: The guy gives us his opinion, and doesn't deserve to be flamed whenever an angry fan finds it too low. You can discuss it in a either rational
or guessed manner but allways avoiding the offence.
Otherwise is an attack for only lacking a photografical backup for the opposite theory.
Glenn said on 30/Aug/06
Jackie-your reading too much into the photos.photos can be tricky due to posture,footwear,street levels,hidden lifts and weird angles.maybe Beatty was hunched in some way.I always stand as straight as possible.next I need you to say is the photos are faked.photos arnt always accurate to gauge.relax and enjoy the photos for what its worth.its a conversation piece,not an accurate science.thank you for your interest and insight.all veiws are important to the site.at least you stated your opinion with class.
Jackie said on 29/Aug/06
I didn't STATE you and Stallone were friends or something. I was wondering if you had a personal preference/liking for him that might color your perception of his height. In any way, after studying my photo collages, or simply studying your own pictures of yourself with Beatty, Hoffman, Nicholson, Keaton, Altman, Stiller respectively, don't you find it odd that a legitimately tall man like Beatty looks to differ about as much with you in height as legitimately short men like Stiller and Hoffman, and legitimately average height people like Nicholson and Diane Keaton? Surely you must notice it yourself in your photos as compared to ALL OTHER photos taken by a variety of media, be it print, TV, movies whatever...... That's what I was wondering.
Glenn said on 28/Aug/06
Jackie-Your wrong about Sly.the pic on left was a fight actually.and your right,my word isnt law.but I speak the truth.

Gotxo said on 8/Aug/06
George H- That's a close meeting, and yep, i suposse that someone who
is not confident in his features (including height)doesn't spend so many
time with a fan (nice man too). 6'2" for me is not hard to belive.
Thanx for the link.
Glenn said on 3/Aug/06
Im convinced 90% on what you say George.I couldve sworn everytime I saw him he was a hair over 6ft.
Gotxo said on 3/Aug/06
Sorry man, offence, of course you met him and your testimony counts too.
But till now most people give who had met him, gives the man and inch less,
maybe that's another Brett alike case, dunno what to say.
I would slant down the balnace favoring the 6'1" theory since to me, Hackman still looks taller. I know i could be wrong though, you always can post here some link to a shared scene of Bonnie & Clide.
George H said on 3/Aug/06
Gotxo: so what am I? Chopped liver? I met Beatty, too. I had a brief, but nice little talk with him and he gave me his autograph. I AM a real 6'1" and he was bigger than me in flat, liftless, shoes. He was exactly Hackman's height in Bonnie & Clyde. I've recently rewatched that movie on DVD and stopped the picture when they're next to each other. Outside, Hackman is standing on a slope. As soon as he stands next to Beatty, they're the same size. Inside, Beatty even looks a bit taller because Hackman is looking slightly up to him, kinda like I was when I spoke with Beatty. Both, however, are known "slouchers".
Coming from a guy who works in the justice field I know it's only hearsay :) but I found out yesterday that an old neighbor of ours was at the same opening night in Toronto in 2004 (we didn't see her there). She's a big Beatty fan, like my wife, and had also never seen Beatty in the flesh, but commented that she was shocked to see a) how old Beatty looked in person, b) how huge (her words) he was and c) how scary Jeremy Irons looked in person :)
Gotxo said on 2/Aug/06
Both Frank and Glenn give him 6'1" or in the neighborhood.
Both have met him, plus he looked shorter than Gene Hackman in that gangsta film.
Glenn said on 1/Aug/06
No,I havnt.thanks for giving me the heads up.will look when I get on a computer.clearly the man can look between 6-1 and 6-3.and in my pic,less.the question is whether he wears lifts.there was a 5-11 rumor going around and my pic backs that up,but you seem to ignore that.I THINK,the guy is close to 6-1,and wears lifts.and in my pic was liftless and slouched in some way.
George H said on 31/Jul/06
Hey, where did that other guy's comment go? There should be another entry from someone else between my two last comments.... Weird.

Glenn, I was curious if you'd taken a look at all the Beatty pics with various other celebs that have been posted by me and others (I also posted pics of him in the Alan Alda, Natalie Wood, Robert Wagner and Oliver Platt threads) and what your reaction is to those pics.
Elio said on 10/Apr/06
You make a good point George (and Frank2). I think he probably is 6'2". However, it is strange that he only looks 6 feet even next to Glenn. Just one random anomaly I suppose.
Frank2 said on 10/Apr/06
This thread cracks me up! Beatty is legitimately tall. In fact, he's one of the taller actors I've met. You need to move over to where I'm arguing with Tiger and others over various photos on the Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin and Marilyn Monroe threads. It's really funny to read all his excuses given after I post a photo that shows a specific height difference between two people and he can't accept what's before his eyes.
George H said on 10/Apr/06
No, I still don't buy it, Elio. Your legs, your calves and knees, have a different position when you have a lift. Even when I'm standing in my boots, I notice my posture is different than when I'm in my trainers or other flat shoes. If I noticed anything, and I checked his feet instinctively because I was not expecting him to be that tall, it's that he was really standing flat footed. That's hwy I keep repeating that he wore big flat shoes. Definitely no lifts. He is that big.
Elio said on 5/Apr/06
Well actually I would say he might be 6'0" even and wearing 2.5" - 3" shoes. Which would make him look 6'2".
As far as saying he's 'vain' , I was refering to Carly Simon's song. Although she's occasionally said it's about lots of guys she's dated, popular belief is that the song is pretty much about this guy. I mean, how many other celebs have songs about their vanity?
George H said on 5/Apr/06
You know Elio, you're probably right. Beatty is only 5'9" and wears lifts to look 6'2". That would make His wife Rhea Perlman's size, Michael Douglas around 5'4", Dustin Hoffman about 5'1". I also think it's a safe bet that most artists and actors are quite vain. You probably get that way from being pampered and kissed on the butt by everybody all the time :)
Glenn said on 3/Apr/06
Elio said on 3/Apr/06
How do you know he wasn't wearing lifts. He is so vain afterall.
Glenn said on 3/Apr/06
He can have very bad posture then.
George H said on 3/Apr/06
I have to go with Jackie.
Glenn, I may have just seen him up close one time, but I can only say what I experienced. And that is that he was taller than I am, and that he was quite a bit taller than Jeremy Irons. Jeremy Irons seemed about my height, 6'1", but he was further away from where we were standing. In fact, not unlike the recently posted photos, Beatty was the tallest man on that red carpet when we were there. And he wasn't wearing lifts, or as Jackie says high heels.
My wife is 5'9" and was not wearing high heels. Annette was about an inch or so taller than her, with modest heels on. Beatty was slightly more than half a head (half of his big head) taller than Annette. Irons was more than one inch shorter than Beatty. I'd say Annette is about 5'8" (when I compare her to my wife) and with the shoes she had on that night 5'10". Beatty had on normal shoes. I believe normal shoes are maybe 3/4 of an inch high. Irons was wearing the same type of normal height shoes, only a different style and color. It wasn't a gala premiere, where the men wear tuxedos and dress shoes.
Glenn said on 30/Mar/06
Who said 5-10?
dmeyer said on 30/Mar/06
he does look very tall near stiller and douglas
Glenn said on 29/Mar/06
Any chance these 5-11 rumors are true? judging from my photo? which you havnt mentioned lately.and I think you only met him once.everytime I saw him,he was 6ft.any chance he is 6ft or 61 and wears? for those who see him at 62,63 ?
George H said on 29/Mar/06
Forgot to add that I'm not starting an argument, just explaining. :)
George H said on 29/Mar/06
Reread that, Glenn. I'm not saying he is 6'1, period. I'm saying that IF he is 6'1", then he must be a very tall 6'1", because I am 6'1" in bare feet and was wearing boots the day I met him, while he was wearing big, dark, flat shoes, yet when I sought eye contact with him (over a distance of about 1 foot) to offer him my program to sign, I had to look UP. We were standing on the same level ground, only separated by a type of rope or whatever to keep us in that area and not spill over the "red carpet". THAT is what I was saying. If I have to choose between Frank2's 6'1" and your "He always looked 5'11" - 6ft to me" comment of March 20, I have to stick with Frank2 because his comes closer to my perception, but I perceived him to be taller than that, given my own height.
Glenn said on 28/Mar/06
Reread that George.this how arguments start.your not making any sense.I said 6-1 cause Frank said so.now your saying 6-1 min.so why are you going against what Im saying,which is the same thing your saying and never once hold into account the best proof ever,I met him countless times and my photo! he is no more than 6ft there! and I heard countless times he is 5-11 and wears lifts.my photo prooves this.now Im not saying he is 5-11,Im saying he isnt 6-2,6-3.6-1 is fine.
George H said on 27/Mar/06
No, Glenn, it doesn't 'clear things up'. You should watch the movie they made together (Beatty and Nicholson) called 'The Fortune' or else every photo in which they are together. Beatty is consistently half a head taller than Nicholson. And like I said from personal observation, the man has a rather large/long head. Longer than average I would say. 6'1" minimum, but since he was taller than me in Toronto, and I measure 6'1" in bare feet, and was wearing boots that night, while he was wearing big flat shoes, I'd say he's either a very tall 6'1", but really still 6'2". Annette Bening is 5'8" and she was wearing heels. They were not extremely high, but I think about 2 inches, and she was considerably shorter than him, too.
Mr. R said on 24/Mar/06
George H - I have never seen Warren Beatty.
Glenn said on 24/Mar/06
Well then that clears that up that he isnt 6-2 or 6-2.5.and yes,Jack is 5-8.
Frank2 said on 24/Mar/06
Beatty is 6'1". No question in my mind. I had to look up at him when I talked to him. And Nicholson is about 5'8". I had to look down at him when we spoke which was at the Emmys. We were in the lobby waiting to get back inside. When you leave to go to the restroom, a seat sitter takes your seat and they don't allow you back in until a commercial break. Same at the Oscars.
Glenn said on 24/Mar/06
I believe in a small possibility that beatty is 6 even and mcqueen migtve been 5-9.small chance.ironically,nicholson was in that beatty picture with me,and walked away when he reconised my friend as an autograph dealer.he looked 5-10 that night,tallest I ever saw him.I also remember beatty looking 6-3 in a movie or 2.
Glenn said on 22/Mar/06
elio said on 22/Mar/06
From what i've seen, I think 6 foot could be more accurate. These days at least.
Glenn said on 22/Mar/06
Hackman can look 6-3 at times.but you seem to be ignoring the fact he can look shorter as this photo prooves.another rumored guy to wear lifts.as with 6-1 plus looking Nick nolte,being suppossedly 5-11 sans lifts.
Frank2 said on 21/Mar/06
I saw and spoke with him at the time he was filming Bulworth which was in 1998. No way is he my height. I'd bet a million dollars on that one. He's a solid 6'1" and was possibly 6'2" back when he did Bonnie and Clyde. I mean he was the same height as Gene Hackman! And don't tell me Hackman is 5'11" or I'll scream and run amok!
George H said on 21/Mar/06
Fair enough. I don't care what anyone says, either, because I know what I saw in Toronto :) My wife only wished she could have met him in the 1970's, though she isn't exactly complaining now!
Frank2, when was the last time you saw Beatty? And you are right, he was very nice. I first got Annette's autograph, and because he was standing by her side, I offered him the program to sign as well. He asked 'you DO know I'm just her date. I'm not in this movie.' which I thought showed his sense of humor. When I still wanted him to sign he smiled, signed, gave back my program and thanked me! He signed about half as many times as Annette, and it was her premiere.
Mr. R, if you're still around, did you ever see him?
Glenn said on 20/Mar/06
He always looked 5-11,6 feet to me.I read he wears lifts.I dont care what anyone says cause this photo backs my claim,unless he has bad posture.at least one person agrees he doesnt always look tall.
George H said on 20/Mar/06
No, Glenn, that's what amazes me. He doesn't look 6-2 next to you, but he did next to me (I'm 6'1"). But we didn't take any pictures, because where we were standing, only the press was allowed to make photos. I was about 1 foot away from him and I have to agree with Frank2 that he looked at least 6-1. But really a bit over that.
Frank2 said on 19/Mar/06
Beatty is still at least 6'1".
mike said on 19/Mar/06
beatty def doesnt look 6'2 next to glenn, he is more like 5'11 6' tops. but i hear that he really is tall in person, but on tv and in photographs he doesnt look tall at all, i havent seen that many movies or photogrpahs of him, im just going by estimate, you would have to ask glenn or others for their opinions
Glenn said on 18/Mar/06
Beatty looks 6-2 next to me?
Jack Mac said on 9/Mar/06
Check out "Bugsy" when Beatty talks to Elliot Gould, 6"3" I've read, Beatty looks a good 2 inches shorter unless Gould was wearing lifts for his character.
George H said on 6/Mar/06
I know Beatty must be shorter than Neeson, because Neeson is always listed as at least 6'3", but often more than that. I don't have a clue about Fiennes. Haven't seen any of his movies I think. If he was the one from "The English Patient" I h3eard how long that movie was and let my wife go with her friends, :)
Glenn said on 4/Mar/06
not sure if I met irons.no.I didnt.at least I dont have a photo.got to ask my friends if I met him.I always get jeremy,liam neeson and ralph fiennes confused with each other.
George H said on 16/Feb/06
Glenn, did you ever make a photograph of you and Jeremy Irons? He was also there at the Film Festival with Beatty because he was in the same movie as Annette Bening. Beatty was clearly bigger than him, too. Not just taller, but bigger in the shoulders and chest. Irons is a sickly looking man in real life. Very thin and tired looking. Maybe he appears taller than Beatty to some who have not seen them standing side by side, because he is so much thinner. I think Beatty had at least an inch on him, too. Irons looked about 6'1" like me. He didn't sign half as many autographs as the Beattys, concentrated more on posing for the press and talking with other people who were involved with the festival and the movie.
DP said on 8/Feb/06
Warren Beatty is the consumate perfect 10 in the category of tall, dark and handsome. Not too tall- 6'1-6'2, (dark never made any sense) but definitely totally handsome. Yea, I'm a guy but don't we all wish we looked like Beatty and could get the girls that he does.
Glenn said on 7/Feb/06
no way does warren look 6-2.he looks to me 5-11,6 feet.
George H said on 30/Jan/06
? Are you sure this Glenn person is 5'8", or that Beatty isn't standing in a hole in the ground? When I saw him he looked a lot older than in this photo, but for certain was he taller than I am at 6'1". I stood opposite him, not next to him and he signed my program. Nice big guy, big flat shoes, big or long head.
CelebHeights Editor said on 26/Jan/06
Here is a pic with Glenn and Beatty...looking more 5ft 11 in that pic...maybe Glenn caught him, like Cool J on a bad posture situation.
Glenn said on 30/Nov/05
I heard a crazy story that he is 5-10! and wears lifts! makes a little sense cuase I met him and photo to proove it.he appeared 6 foot even to me.good eye klaus.I met hackman too and he appeared 6-3! taller impression he gave me that beatty did.
sam said on 4/Oct/05
Somebody asks Beatty his height in The Parallax View and he replies "6'2", what the f*** does that have to do with anything?"
Mr Klaus said on 3/Jul/05
Dear Editor do you have watched Bonnie & Clyde? Gene Hackman is taller than Warren Beatty. Hackman is listed as 6 ft 2 in the most sites. How tall do you have listed hackman 6 ft 3?
Rut said on 25/Apr/05
I compared some pictures, but I don't don't think he was ever this tall, but with respect and for those who think his is taller than 1.85m, why would they downgrade him then in the first place? (If he was taller) I believe Hackman was 1.88m, he was with him in Bonnie & Clyde, but he kind of slouches sometimes..
Rut loves Jules said on 19/Apr/05
To the editor: From the films of Warren Beatty (Citadel press, 1978)
At this period, six feet one inches in height, 175 pounds.. (1967- when he was thirty!) so not taller than 185 cm.
[Editor Rob: yeah Rut, but If I downgrade him I'll suffer the wrath of your fellow Dutch compatriots, George H and Jackie :)]
George H. said on 22/Mar/05
I can only speak for myself. I *am* 6'1" and Beatty was bigger than me. I've seen photos of him next to other tall guys like Sen. John Kerry. I think Kerry is about 6'4" or taller, and Beatty seemed to differ as much in height with him, as I do with Beatty.
John R said on 18/Mar/05
I saw a picture next to George W. Bush, and you can see Beatty is an inch tops taller than the president. I dont think Bush stands at 6'1''
George H said on 11/Mar/05
Hey Mr. R.,
Not testy at all, but some smilies would help express the tone in which my message was written.
And yeah, I'm a smidgen over 6'1" in bare feet - just had my annual physical (PD). We sure could use more guys of Beatty's size in our department!
Mr. R said on 10/Mar/05
George, don't get testy. I live in Hollywood, and I see folks all the time, and report them to our editor. Sometimes he doesn't believe me either...I look on it as a challenge...But our editor is doing a great job!
CelebHeights Editor said on 9/Mar/05
Well, I didn't meet him unlike yourself George...I'm merely comparing him beside other people around the 6ft 2-6ft 2.5 mark, namely Morgan Freeman, Sydney Poitier, John C Reilly. I do have him at 187 though...but George, if you've recently measured yourself accurately at 185cm barefeet, then this would be a very good indicator that he's walking on the 6ft 2 mark :) Unless of course he's doing a John Wayne...
George H. said on 9/Mar/05
Wait a minute. YOU can't see him as being over 6 ft 2. When did you meet him and how close did you stand to him? I was about a foot away from him last September, on level ground, wearing my boots at 6'1", and looked up at him about an inch, give or take. He was wearing normal shoes. His wife's heels were not that high, but she did wear heels and was considerably smaller than him. I'm a fan of hers, not of him, but he was very kind and patient. He left quite an impression on me because of that, and because I had figured him to be smaller.
George H. said on 3/Mar/05
I think Mr. Beatty is over 6'2". I was at the Toronto Film Festival last September and got his and his wife's autograph. They stood really close and I am 6'1" and I had to slightly look up to him when I presented him with my program to sign. He is an impressive man. Annette Bening is tallish, too.
