No, 6ft is laughable. He's 5ft11 tops and possible a bit less.
Sean said on 15/May/09
5 ft 11.5 is laughable. This guy looks no more than 5 ft 10 TOPS!!

He's 6 foot next to 6 foot 2 david letterman. He seems tall. 5 foot 9 is laughable.
D. Ray Morton said on 11/May/09
Wasn't he in My Bodyguard? :-)
Brad said on 11/May/09
As listed above 5 feet in front of me at Universal. Anything less is a joke.
Lenad said on 9/May/09
Might be a lift wearer which would explain him looking nearly as tall as Jim Carrey
Mike said on 9/May/09
If I had to guess he was probably 5'9 and that would be generous
Mike said on 9/May/09
Again I am 6ft with no shoes again at the airport where you take shoes off to go through security he was at least two inches shorter than me.
Lenad said on 9/May/09
I think a weak 5ft11 like 179-180cm is most likely but He looked only marginally shorter than strong 6'1 Jim Carrey (185-186cm). This guy is hard to pin!
Hugh 190cm said on 9/May/09
I see 5ft11 flat.
Lenad said on 8/May/09
Mr R and Glenn saw 5ft11ish but he looked nearly as tall as 6'1 Jim Carrey so Ah dunno.
glenn said on 7/May/09
absolutely.i thought he was 6ft min cause of the tall sightings.but he was 5-11ish again last month.and it was only 2007 he grew.lifts indeed.
Anonymous said on 6/May/09
Glenn, Baldwin must be a lift wearer if you've been consistently been seeing him at 6ft1. 6ft1-2inches = 5ft11 barefoot. 2 inches is the typical height boost with lifts.
Anonymous said on 6/May/09
5ft11 flat is what I see.
glenn said on 5/May/09
im shocked i had 6-1 sighthings of alec in 2007,to see him back at 5-11.5 last month at an event.
MD said on 4/May/09
Mike, how incredibly ridiculous of you to post. That was a waste of my time every reading it. Rob should go through these more often and delete that stuff that obviously meant to waste time.
leonari said on 4/May/09
mike: Thats the biggest crap I have ever read. Seriously. Get a life and stop posting this ****. 5'7" Alec baldwin. What a joke.
mike said on 4/May/09
I was behind him in Reagan international airport in DC I'm 6 ft he was shorter than me. But when the shoes came off to go through security he really got short.
I would guess maybe 5'7 and that's being generous. Shame when wear lifters in their shoes to seem taller
Hugh said on 1/May/09
Alec Baldwin is probably scraping 5ft11 nowadays.
Anonymous said on 30/Apr/09
6ft is a complete joke. 5ft11 tops.
Anonymous said on 30/Apr/09
He's 180cm max.
Anonymous said on 28/Apr/09
It's a way of saying he is shorter yes. Sorry if it's a little harsh.

Hugh 190 cm: Getting owned? because he is shorter...?
Hugh 190cm said on 7/Apr/09
Doug I'm sorry I respect your claims overall but I have to diagree with you here. Baldwin is not 6ft and I don't think he's 182cm either. This listing is too much. He's 5ft11 MAX. he's 3 inches shorter than both of his brothers and looks no taller than Kevin Spacey in Glengarry Glenross and is getting owned by Sean Connery in Hunt for Red October. He's 50 now so he's likely to have lost 1cm. Doug also you are forgetting Stephen Baldwin who isn't quite 5ft10. So 2 out of 4 of the Baldwin Brotehrs are under 6ft. William Bladwin and Daniel Baldwin I'll admit are both well over 6ft. On 30 Rock he looks 5ft10-5ft11 tops. So I personally think he's barely 5ft11 today. Maybe in shoes he's close to 6ft. I'd peg Alec at around 179cm barefoot. He was also shorter than Leo Dicaprio by half an inch to 1 inch.
Doug said on 6/Apr/09
There is only 2-2.5 inches height difference between Alec and William. Nothing more. Baldwin is minimum 5'11.5", maybe even 6' but he is heavier built so looks shorter. He was roughly the same size as Leo di Caprio I thought so he has to be a weak 6'0 like Leo.
Doug said on 6/Apr/09
I always saw this guy as a strong 6'. I thought he was nearer 6'1" in shoes. The shortest of the brothers but I doubt any of them are under 6'.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 21/Feb/09
In Beetle Juice he was slightly shorter than Geena.
Mr. R. said on 30/Jan/09
Alec is close to 5-11, but not quite. I saw him in New York.
Hugh said on 29/Jan/09
Maybe he wears lifts. James, I think his stocky frame can make him appear shorter. Okay, 10-15 maybe 20 years ago this guys could've passed for 6ft guy because he was slimmer.
Lenad said on 26/Jan/09
Then again I cant rule out Glenns 6ft0 sightings for Alec.
glenn said on 25/Jan/09
maybe james.
glenn said on 24/Jan/09
dont ask me how,but proofs on the connick page,like i was saying alec can look 6-1.now i know damn well he isnt and is he 5-11.5? sure.possible.but i dont buy a hair under and believe most likely 6ft.
Hugh said on 24/Jan/09
Okay Glenn, myabe I could see Baldwin at 6ft only if Willis is at say 6ft0.5-6ft1.
Hugh said on 23/Jan/09
He doesn't look over 5ft11 these days. Prime possibly.
Lenad said on 22/Jan/09
When he stands next to Jim Carrey I think Alec might wear lifts in movies at times to make himself at least 6ft0. There is no way a barefoot 5'10.5 would appear that tall next to a 6'1 Unless Jim Carrey is only 5ft11 which is ridiculous.
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
Really he looks no more than 5ft10.5 next to his brothers who are both 6ft2 and 6ft1 (maybe 6ft1.5). But Mr. R, was he rude to you?
Mr. R. said on 18/Jan/09
I met Alec in New York several years ago. He was doing Macbeth with Angela Bassett, who was fantastic! After the show, we were hanging around, and he came out of the theater to bring back in Angela to speak with an older lady. There was a woman in a wheelchair asking for his autograph, and he pushed by her at least three times. I dont know if she ever got it. Were I to describe Alec, it would be pompous and surly. He was a little shorter than me. 5-10.5
Lenad said on 17/Jan/09
Glenn saw this guy at 6'1. However Mr R saw him at 5'10. Does this guy ever wear lifts?
Hugh said on 16/Jan/09
If not Bruce Willis, then Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell or say Sean Connery. Anyway, I'm drifting off subject. 5ft11.5 MAYBE in his prime and 180cm tops nowadays. Possibly 5ft10.5.
Hugh said on 16/Jan/09
True James. But he looks a lot shorter than his younger, more reserved and well mannered siblings. You know what I'd love to see. A fight scene between Alec Baldwin and Bruce Willis. I'd love to see Bruce absolutely beat Alec to a pulp. It would shut him up.
Hugh said on 13/Jan/09
Oh beyond smug. Anyway he's 5ft11 MAX.
Hugh said on 11/Jan/09
Actually I was wrong. He's a very ignorant man overall. No respect for anyone. He's a terrible father and a terrible human being. 'nicer in person'. what was I thinking. But James I agree he did look tall next to Matt Damon.
Hugh said on 7/Jan/09
cheers glenn. I hear Alec is a lot nicer in person than on screen or in certain interviews.
glenn said on 7/Jan/09
well,thats what i meant about headache.happy to back you.from your descriptions of celebs,i could tell your the real deal.
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
Glenn I realize that. Thanks for backing me up.
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
I did read it.
glenn said on 6/Jan/09
i guess you didnt go on the gerard page.or care what you read if you did.
Hugh said on 5/Jan/09
What do you mean another headache Glenn?
glenn said on 5/Jan/09
alec is def not 6-1.but he is up to something footwise.go to the gerard butler page for another headache i just backed you on.
Hugh said on 4/Jan/09
Thank you Glenn. Willis being a legit 6ft I can buy. 6ft1 seems okay aswell. Alec might've been close to 6ft in his prime. Aswell if Alec is 6ft1 then that would make Willis what 6ft2!
glenn said on 4/Jan/09
happy new years to you also hugh.and to you james.as for alex,maybe he finally discovered lifts? i was amazed at how tall he looked.one on the set of a tv show,in the street.i just happen to walk by on his break.notorious for turning down photo ops.then the other times were small events.again,i agree,i always thought 5-11 too.yet,then again,he has looked near 6ft to me alot in the 90s.without a doubt willis is taller.cause that would mean alex is a legit 6-1 and i think thats absurd.6ft is possible for alex.6-1 downright impossible.but,he looks it recently.thanks for respecting my opinions hugh and for backing me on willis 6-1.i always feel your posts are more worthy than others for obvious reasons.
Hugh said on 4/Jan/09
No, James he's just not over 5ft11. Perhaps in his prime he might've been this height. But not today.
Hugh said on 3/Jan/09
Glenn who do you think is taller, Willis or Baldwin????? I'm backing you on your 6ft1 claims for Willis.
Hugh said on 3/Jan/09
I garuntee anyone that if you put this guy next to an honest 6ft man like say Tom Hanks or Dennis Quaid, he's likely to be shorter. The tallest I've seen Baldwin was in the Departed where he did tower over Mark Wahlberg. But that was before I discovered Wahlberg's real height.
Hugh said on 3/Jan/09
Glenn, he looks tiny compared to his brothers. One who is 6ft1 or maybe 6ft1.5 himself. The other 6ft2. He looked no taller than Leo Dicaprio in the Aviator. Infact he looked marginally shorter. If Baldwin is at least 6ft then Leo is at least 6ft0.5, His brothers would be like 6ft3.5 and 6ft4. Also he looked barely taller than Kevin Spacey and Ed Harris in Glengarry Glenross. Maybe he was 5ft11.5 in his prime or even 6ft. But I have a hard time beleiving it. But if you think he's 6ft that's your personal opinion and I respect your opinion. BTW happy new year.
glenn said on 1/Jan/09
thats not true hugh.i stated many times he has looked 6-1 to me alot last year.how,i have no clue.i agree,i thought he was 5-11 too.he is 6ft min.
Hugh said on 31/Dec/08
He's 5ft11 tops nowadays rob please downgrade him!
Hugh said on 21/Dec/08
He's 5ft11 MAX. Always has been.
Hugh said on 15/Dec/08
In Glenns pic Alec looks no more than 179cm.
Hugh said on 13/Dec/08
In the Aviator DiCaprio was about an inch taller than Baldwin.
Hugh said on 10/Dec/08
Maybe. But when you put him next to legit 6 footers like Hanks, Washington or even Cage he's bound to be shorter.
Hugh said on 8/Dec/08
No James, he just is shorter.
Hugh said on 2/Dec/08
Sorry James this guy just doesn't look over 5ft11 these days.
Hugh said on 1/Dec/08
Rob I think you should leave him at 180cm. I really don't think this man is 6ft or even close.
Hugh said on 30/Nov/08
It's likely that Baldwin is under 5ft11 these days.
Hugh said on 23/Nov/08
I always thought Vaughn was actually closer to 6ft6 because he gives a more imposing presence than guys like Robbins or Goldblum.
Hugh said on 20/Nov/08
Baldwin I'd say is in the same catagory as Willis, Ford and DiCaprio and Law. I think Travolta, Gllyenaal, Walken, Norton, Washington, Kilmer and Walken are all legit 6ft guys. So most of the time they would appear over 6ft on screen. I think 6ft1 onwards is where legitimately tall starts.
Ed(1) said on 19/Nov/08
I'd agree with that James! Yeah it's only a 0.5 inch, but it does seem to start to seperate the above average from those who really "stand out" from the rest of the pack. Personally I know the average in the use is debated at between 5ft9.25-5ft10, but I consistently see more and more guys my height(5ft11.75 out of bed/5ft11.25 the majority of the day) these days, which makes me wonder how accurate that figure is. On screen a 5ft11-6ft1 guy looks fairly tall, but doesn't stand out the same way a guy like Hugh Jackman(6ft2.25) does.
Ed(1) said on 19/Nov/08
That's true James, guys like Ford and Travolta looked fairly tall in the 1970's! As the years have gone by they've both come to look more in the above average range, then say the way they did in films like Star Wars, Apocalypse Now, Grease, and Saturday Night Fever. If you've ever seen any of Baldwin's early films like The Hunt for Red October, Beetlejuice, and Glengarry Glen Ross he gave the impression of a solid 6ft guy, especially because he was a lot skinnier back then.

The 5ft11-6ft1 range seems to be the trickiest to pin down, especially when you add various footwear to the picture. I'd say as usual Rob has him at a good listing!
Ed(1) said on 18/Nov/08
I'd agree Pitt is no more then 5ft11 tops. Willis looked maybe 6ft in his younger days, but I think 5ft11-5ft11.5 seems more reasonable. Quaid I could see as 6ft, but not much more then that! As for Ford, I still don't know what to make of him, he looks all of 5ft11-6ft tops in most of his films from the 80's on, but he's been listed at and seen as 6ft1!

To me Baldwin fits in with this group perfectly as an above average height guy! Guys like Leo Dicaprio, Jake Gyllenhaal, Christopher Walken, Edward Norton, Denzel Washington, and John Travolta all fit into this category as well in my opinion. They don't come across as really tall on screen or in pictures, just above average! Guys like Clive Owen, Eric Bana, and Hugh Jackman on the other hand look legitimately tall on screen! It seems that the 6ft2 mark is what really makes a male actor stand out as a tall presence, anything under that(unless the cast is really short) comes across as above average.
That's just my two cents!
Hugh said on 18/Nov/08
Quaid, Willis and Ford are likely taller than Baldwin but Pitt is definately no more than 5ft11. Ford at his peak was 6ft1 going back to say the Star Wars era. Quaid could've been 6ft1 when he was younger. As for Willis he did give the impression of a 6ft1 guy but more likely 6ft. Baldwin wouldn't be similiar in height to them. I'd say he's scraping 6ft in shoes and scraping 5ft11 barefoot.
Ed(1) said on 18/Nov/08
James I'd guess it's bad posture from time to time, plus he's gotten pretty hefty over the years. I don't think he's anything under 5ft11, and he's definitely no more then 6ft. With Baldwin it looks like the usual tricky 5ft11-6ft1 dilemma rears its ugly head again! That range can be really tough to pinpoint! He's never struck me as really tall, just above average like the other guys I mentioned. In person that could be a different story altogether!
Ed(1) said on 17/Nov/08
5ft11-5ft11.5 sounds about right for Baldwin, because he almost always comes across as relatively tall guy on screen. I'd guess he's scraping 6ft1 in shoes! He has that slightly taller then average look to him in most films, similar to Dennis Quaid, Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis, and Brad pitt!
Hugh said on 14/Nov/08
Never James. These days he seems to be struggling with 179cm. Aswell he's dwarfed by his brothers who are 6ft2 and 6ft1.5 respectively.
Big T said on 12/Nov/08
How come my comments disappeared off this page?
Hugh said on 12/Nov/08
Well it's not hard to dwarf someone like Mark Wahlberg. He's fricken 5ft7. 4 inches taller. That still makes Alec 5ft11. He never was 6ft. end of story.
glenn said on 12/Nov/08
hugh-i thought so too.im going with 6ft now.i change my mind.
Clay said on 11/Nov/08
Considering he dwarfed Wahlberg, I say you're off-base here Hugh.
Hugh said on 10/Nov/08
Glenn, what do you think? I personally think he's no more than 5ft11.
glenn said on 8/Nov/08
until one sees someone...
Hugh said on 8/Nov/08
Sorry, this guy has been 5ft11 tops from the start.
TELLEM said on 7/Nov/08
baldwin looked 6'0 next to 6'1.5 jim carey in the movie "fun with dick and jane" i can buy 6'0 for him but nothing over
glenn said on 7/Nov/08
finally one i dont agree on with hugh.i always thought 5-11 too,until this guy has been looking 6-1 to me in the last 2 years.so he has to be at least 6ft.with a slight lift.
Hugh said on 6/Nov/08
I personally think Alec is slightly less than 5ft11.
Hugh said on 14/Oct/08
Well he never gets listed as 6ft.
Brad2 said on 14/Oct/08
Good lord, you people who think you're getting these guys' heights down to the quarter inch by eyeballing them always kill me. Do you guys have any conception of how small a 0.25 inch difference is? A full INCH is the length of the tip of my index finger. Most people can't get someone's height correct even standing a few feet away from them. Shoes, slight changes in posture, uneven ground, distance, it makes a big difference fast. (Not to mention the comical nature of asserting that 3 inches difference in height equals "towering" over someone.)

This isn't a defense of Baldwin. I don't like the guy. But c'mon, time and again if I search for someone's height I find them listed on this site, and the comments are always the same. What I do not understand is why there is so little discussion in most of these threads about the fact that all actors lie about their height. They're in acting. It's what they do. They know - just as coaches and athletes do - that it's perfectly possible to fudge height by a couple of inches without people knowing for sure. Women get away with it because of their shoes, and because they are shorter than men - who generally don't care that much if a woman is 5'4 or 5'6 and don't pay that much attention. Men get away with it because it's an increasingly small difference versus other men as height increases, and because people are just bad at judging height within such a small range. An average man is 5 feet 9 inches tall, or 69 inches. Two inches is equivalent to less than 3% of his total height. Baldwin lists himself as 5'11. It's perfectly reasonable to assume he's 5'10. He may even be, at this point, slightly under 5'10. He looks like an average guy. Maybe an average guy doesn't impress, but he's certainly capable of being an average guy and still being a 'big' guy as well.
Hugh said on 13/Oct/08
No I haven't met him. Just by seeing him on T.V and when Glenn met him aswell. And of course the way he treats his daughter.
Hugh said on 11/Oct/08
He was probably 5ft11 20 years ago. Nowadays he's 5ft10-5ft10.5 tops. May I also be the first to say that Alec is a total ass.
Mr. R said on 11/Oct/08
As I mentioned earlier, he is not quite 5-11.
Frank2 said on 10/Oct/08
If Alec doesn't start losing some weight, he won't remain 5'11" for long.
Lenad said on 10/Oct/08
Most sights list him at 5'11. He probabaly is 5'11 on the dot. He was towered by Ben Affleck and he is only 6'2.
Hugh said on 4/Oct/08
No 5ft11.5-6ft is BS.
Lmeister said on 3/Oct/08
He might be a weak 5ft11. He doesn't look that tall in 30 Rock. Could be it is because he has packed quite a few pounds during last 10 years.
Leung said on 2/Oct/08
Get real Hugh, 5ft10-5ft10.5 is BS and you know it.
Hugh said on 2/Oct/08
6ft is ridiculous, 5ft11.5 is wishful thinking and 5ft11 is bang on. 5ft10-5ft10.5 is even more bang on.
Hugh said on 26/Sep/08
His brothers dwarf him
Lenad said on 26/Sep/08
I doubt Mike ever saw Alec in the flesh Hugh and yes I agree he is 5'10-5'11 range.
Hugh said on 25/Sep/08
Lenad, Mike never 'met' Alec he 'saw' Alec. Anyway I think Alec is a strong 5ft10 to a weak 5ft11. End of story. He should be downgraded.
Lenad said on 25/Sep/08
Stop lying Mike you've never met the guy.
Hugh said on 24/Sep/08
Sorry Mike. Alec is not over 5ft11 and never was. He's pretty average to me and I think Rob should downgrade him.
mike said on 23/Sep/08
saw him at the emmys. easily 5ft 11.5. possibly even 6 even when he wakes up. He is a big guy
Lenad said on 23/Sep/08
Mr R says 29/Jul/08
Alec is not quite 5'11. I saw him in New York and he was a little shorter than me. Hes also a d@@@!
Look whos talking
Hugh said on 20/Sep/08
James, Alec is dead lucky if he's 5ft11. His brothers tower over him. How does he even remotely look 6ft0.5 if Daniel(6ft1) has 3 inces on him. Apparently they love taking pictures with him to prove how short he is. If I had my way I would put Alec at 5ft10.75.
Hugh said on 16/Sep/08
I think Seinfeld and Baldwin are the same height. Baldwin is closer to the camera and has a nice head of greasy gelled back hair.
Hugh said on 13/Sep/08
Barefoot hes 5ft10.25.
Hugh said on 11/Sep/08
Maybe in shoes he's over 5ft11.
Clark said on 7/Sep/08
This needs to be a serious drop in height....5'11 1/2 " is a JOKE!!!!
Hugh said on 27/Aug/08
This guy has never been over 5ft11 in his life.
Frank2 said on 13/Aug/08
McGill isn't 6'5" He was two inches shorter than Steven Seagal in UNDER SEIGE 2: DARK TERRITORY.
Frank2 said on 13/Aug/08
Is this thread locked.

[Editor Rob: nothing is locked, there's only 1 page on the site where I stopped comments.]

Looking somewhat taller than Jerry Seinfeld (5-11?) though Alec is slightly closer to the camera...

RICHARD said on 10/Aug/08
Everett McGill is 6'5.
Frank2 said on 10/Aug/08
Eric Bogosian looked like Shrimpenstien next to 6'4" Steven Seagal and 6'2.5" Everett McGill in UNDER SEIGE2: DARK TERRITORY. Are you sure he's almost 6'? Somehow I tend to doubt it. I can't say for certain since he's one actor I've never seen in person.

In this shot with Josh Lucas on the right, Bogosian doesn't look that tall:

I've seen Lucas in person and he's my height or 5'11".
34 said on 10/Aug/08
glenn you think everyone is taller than they actually are
you thought matt damon was 5-10 or 5-11 when he's really 5-8 or 5-9
RICHARD said on 7/Aug/08
Looks like a soild 5'11 guy to me in all his films.

In Talk Radio,he appeared the same height as Eric Bogosian,who is listed somewhere as 5'11.5, and Alec looked this as well. So basically he's 6' on a good day,but he has nothing to be ashamed of since 5'11 is a good height for any man. He's also noticeably taller than Stephen Baldwin(5'9)
Anamalech said on 4/Aug/08
In the Good Shepherd, he had 2.5-3 inches on Damon, and Damon I don't think is a legit 5'10, maybe 5'9-5'9 1/4 so 5'11.5 sounds correct for this guy.
clark said on 29/Jul/08
Mr.R ....another one that has seen the light!!!
Mr. R said on 29/Jul/08
Alec is not quite 5-11. I saw him in New York, and he was a little shorter than me. He is also a d@@@!
Zach said on 11/Jul/08
for some reason in Glenn Garry Glenross, he looks like a GIANT!, but in 30 Rock he looks 5ft 10/11" max, maybe dude has shrunk, I know Day Lewis has shrunk alot from his "Beautiful Laundrette" days, now DDL is about 6ft 1"
clark said on 5/Jul/08
Hugh, you are dead on. "if not shorter" even more so.....
Hugh said on 6/Jun/08
Fine, if you guys think this guy is 6ft or over so be it. To my eyes he's 5ft11 tops if not shorter.
glenn said on 5/Jun/08
pullman is 6-2 from what i remember.
Hugh said on 5/Jun/08
5ft11 tops. Affleck had this guy by like 4-5 inches.
runt said on 4/Jun/08
Then do we need to upgrade Bill Pullman? His page sais 6-1 to 6-1.5 I judged the movie "Malice" based on the previous 5-11 to 5-11.5 for Baldwin.
glenn said on 30/May/08
i totally agree with dmeyer on this one.mark looked 5-6 at times in that movie.except,as i said before,the last couple of times ive seen alec,he looked 6-1.either way rob needs to change this to 6ft fast.
dmeyer said on 29/May/08
he made whalberg look about 5 ft 6.25
Clay said on 29/May/08
Towered Wahlberg in The Departed.
clark said on 24/May/08
To look 6'1" and to be 6 foot one --totally diff worlds.
glenn said on 22/May/08
ive seen alec look 6-1 alot recently.so no way is he smaller than 6ft.
Davey said on 22/May/08
He looks like a genuine 6 footer to me.
Arnie said on 21/May/08
Most people who are near 6' above or below it , are never really 6' on the mark. Remember that the six foot mark is just one cm. How many people can say for certain that they are right at the mark with normal footwear or flat, and many people who are 5'10 to 5'11 or a bit over will claim they are six, also many who are more like 6'.25 claim they are 6'1. Anyway Alex to me looks 5'11.25 with shoes.
Anonymous said on 9/May/08
I have always said he was never a six footer. In the picture above, if Glenn could step forward. *Notice that their mouths are allmost on the same plane. I would downgrade Alec to 5'10". And that is generous. I stood next him too at 77th and Broadway. No cigar. A good example of a 5'11" is Rob Lowe.
M.P. said on 7/May/08
He looks like he's taller, but I'm guessing that's dead-on.

I stood right next to Alec in 2003 a day or two before Christmas in the All-American Girl store in Manhatten. I was there with my daughters for all of you who would make a comment about my presence. ANYWAY, he was my height: 5'11.5" Glenn you got it right.

I saw him last night on NBC SNL best of Alec Baldwin, he looked 6'0" to me.
Clark said on 1/Apr/08
In this photo: if Glenn stepped forward. The gap bewteen their height would close dramtically. Alec appears about 3 inches closer to the camera.
Hugh said on 27/Mar/08
I think he's no more than 5ft11. Daniel and William Baldwin are well over 6ft though. Both men are around 6ft2.
glenn said on 2/Mar/08
i dont know where people are seeing alec,but that last couple of time ive seen him he was a shocking 6-1.so he is no less than 6ft.sorry.

"That movie with Mcpherson was called THE EDGE..."

Fantastic movie. Very underrated.
Buddy said on 28/Feb/08
Alec in his prime may have been 5'11.5...but now he is barely that even with regular shoes...He is more so 5'11 with shoes now days...Anybody who is around 6'0 can easily give off the impression of looking taller...just as someone who is 5'8 can give off the impression of being 5'10...Clark is right...Although I think 5'9 is downgrading Alec just alittle too much...I'd say 5'10 at the shortest...5'11.5 at the tallest...

sam said on 14/Feb/08
problably if someone actually got down to measuring him, he'd be right around the 6 Mark
Jen Loves Val said on 7/Feb/08
Hmm I always thought that alec is at least 6 ft....he looked like a six footer.
sam said on 2/Feb/08
weird story, i actually saw this guy at a bakery "magnolia" in NYC. though its hard to tell with floor uneveness in that place, he surprisingly looked more 6ft than 5'11. maybe he's a tad taller then he's listed...
clark said on 7/Jan/08
I saw him walking down Broadway ave. in NYC last year --the first that came to mind, is that he was walking like he was in pain or feeling his age. Of course, I looked down to what type of shoes he was wearing, and they were these giant motorcylces shoes--with about 3 inches. He was walking a bit hunched over, and I intentionally walked towards the corner to the dismay of my girlfriend. So- I caught him at the light-- I am guessing about 5'9 or 5'10 in flat feet. For sure those shoes made him a lot taller--also the fact that he has gained so much weight does not help. He is not 6 feet!!!without his shoes!!!
glenn said on 6/Jan/08
ive been seeing him alot lately.and he seems 6-1 now.
VierMae said on 5/Jan/08
I agree with your height Glenn...maybe a solid 6'. however The Departed remains a mistery: he really looks 6'2 in that film
Anonymous said on 12/Dec/07
maybe he was rockin' lifts in The Departed cuz he looked about 6'1 next to Matt Damon.
Adam Brennon said on 15/Nov/07
There is a more than trifling height differential between him and Kurt Russell in 'Backdraft'.
glenn said on 21/Oct/07
i never saw him that tall before.he was filming.so makes sense.
dmeyer said on 20/Oct/07
i agree with glenn alec can look 6'1 in lifts
glenn said on 18/Oct/07
i saw him at 6-1 early this year.i was surprised.
dmeyer said on 17/Oct/07
he is near enaugh 6 foot
Franco said on 30/Sep/07
imho he used to be 183cm or 6'0 flat, today he doesnt look that height.

today he is mostly 181-182cm

so i think the 182cm is correct.
Gonzalo said on 13/Sep/07
1`83 but no more than that. He could be a lift wearer. Remember that pic of him next to his brother William, both barefeet. He looked short, like three inches shorter
ted said on 12/Sep/07
Alec Baldwin is 5-11 as he look 9-10 cm shorter than Ben Affleck.He is a nice guy so i want to give him 6ft but i can't,the difference is more than 3 in.
matt said on 13/Aug/07
I bumped into him at the stephens talkhouse in Amagahnset. I am 6'2 and he was maybe 2 inches shorter than me. He is also a pretty wide dude. I walked up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder to get by. At first I thought he was a cop because he was wearing a black cop-like outfit and has a very cop like haircut.

runt said on 6/Jun/07
looked exactly 1" taller than Nicole Kidman and 1.5" shorter than Bill Pullman in "Malice". 5-11.5 on the nose.
Anonymous said on 3/Jun/07
I think he is 6 foot. He looked the same height as elle macpherson in "the edge", who is pinned at 6 foot on this site.
Anonymous said on 22/May/07
Yeah, you're right Drew. Something fishy is going on because he looked about 3 inches taller than 5'10 Matt Damon in The Departed but looked about the same height as Eric McCormack on Will and Grace. Maybe Damon forgot his lifts for the funeral scene in The Departed?
Drew said on 17/May/07
He looked a little taller than 5'10" Eric McCormack. Now either McCormack is really 5'11" or Baldwin is under 182cm.
5'11 guy said on 15/Apr/07
Actually, he was barely shorter than Letterman back in 1996.
5'11 guy said on 15/Apr/07
Looked over 6' in The Departed IMO.
Anonymous said on 13/Apr/07
Do you think he wears lifts Glenn? He's always looked in the 5'11 range to me too, but he did look alot bigger than Damon in The Departed.
glenn said on 6/Apr/07
yeah,i always pegged alec at 5-11.5,6ft.but was shocked to see him at near 6-1 when i bumped into him 2 months ago.
anonymous said on 5/Apr/07
He looked much taller than Damon in "The Departed". If Damon is 5'10 than Alec should be pushing 6'.
glenn said on 26/Mar/07
i saw alec last month look over 6ft.
The Horse of FUNK said on 25/Mar/07
I think Frank2 is right, he's 5'11", no more. If only I could find the pics again of Alec and Orlando Bloom together. I've always believed Bloom is closer to 5'11" like 5'10.75" (180cm), and Alec is the same height as Bloom, which is q
dmeyer said on 13/Feb/07
thank you rob since he looks tall in friends he looks close to carrey height so 5'11.5 make me understand whi he looks 6 feet he alwais seemed over 5'11 to me so 182 cm fits him good
Zophie said on 2/Feb/07
I've seen him jogging. I guess he looked about my brother's height who I think is 5'11" but I could be wrong on that. I'm only 5'0" and everyone looks tall to me.
Ed said on 30/Jan/07
Baldwin is a deceiving 5ft11 then, because I always thought he was at least 6ft, and in both the Golden Globes and the Sag awards the guy was the tallest on the stage every time he came out. Even with a group of fairly tall looking guys that won some award he presented, he still was bigger than all of them. Even though he's heavier now he still looks tall, it hasn't made him look stockier. Maybe the guy wears a little lift in his shoes, I don't know?
G-unit said on 29/Jan/07
He always looks REALLY tall and huge in movies. I have never seen this guy shorter than 6'. For example in departed and good shepherd he looks clearly 3 inches taller than 5'10 Matt Damon. But according to the picture he really looks 5'11
Thom said on 12/Jan/07
I saw him on my campus the other day, and he is barely 5'11 probably 5'10, as he was noticably shorter than me(6').
Tazman said on 15/Dec/06
I'd say around 5ft11, I'm 5ft 11, half an inch short of 6ft. His body structure makes him look taller. It depends how people stand.
dmeyer said on 11/Dec/06
in movies can look 183 to 184
Glenn said on 6/Dec/06
No bigger than 6ft.
anonymous2 said on 6/Dec/06
If he appeared taller than 5'11", he must have been wearing lifts.
bill said on 6/Dec/06
I saw him tonight and stood face to face with him for about ten minutes, while I was having a conversation with his "representatives". He was definitely taller than 5'11". There ain't no way he's only 180 cm.
dmeyer said on 1/Nov/06
he didnt look the same height he just wasnt mush shoter 1 to 1.5 in

"KELPER says on 6/Sep/06
In will & grace he looks taller than sean hayes and eric mccormack that are listed as 5'11'' here. i think he is 6', because sean hayes does look 180cm "

Mccormack is actually 5'10", and he did look around an inch shorter than Baldwin in the Will and Grace episodes. The current estimate is definitely correct.
dmeyer said on 5/Oct/06
he could be closer to 6 feet and he alwais wear normal shoes he looks tall in friends and will and grace also

Then I'm also six feet.

No way this guy is 6', Goper

I'm presuming either Stiller has lifts here or the pic is an anomaly. Either way Baldwin barely scratches five-eleven these days...

Hey hey, none of that! He IS god - and this sideshow is over.
Frank2 said on 4/Mar/06
Alec is no more than five-eleven. He's also fat these days.
goper said on 3/Mar/06
guest stared on friends, id say 6;. maybe starting to get shorter and look smaller cos he's gettin fat.

Good pic of Alec Zenski. Proves that heights can change from frame to frame and co-star to co-star.

Lol - Magazine's always 'desribe' 5'11 guys as six-footers. Without exception.
CelebHeights Editor said on 20/Feb/06
US Magazine 1991 described him: "strapping, six-foot-tall Baldwin"
Tubbs said on 24/Jan/06
Saw him in that new Jim Carrey movie on sunday, if carrey is a legit 6'1.5 guy, Alec has to be atleast 6'0", there were loads of scenes where they were right next to each other, and there was no more than an inch and a half between them in every scene.
dmeyer said on 18/Jan/06
you right lappers-84 that alec did look tall in friends
Colin G. said on 17/Jan/06
Remember the movie "Beetle Juice"? Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis are ghosts. Anyway, if I remember rightly, she is barefoot throughout the film. Now I know I was right when I suspected the reason. According to your information, she's an inch taller than he is!
lappers_84 said on 5/Jan/06
he looked pretty tall in friends, guess there he was wearing lifts (he looked about 6'1)
Joe said on 13/Oct/05
In all the pictures with Will, Alec is standing a few inches farther from the camera. That gives the impression that Will is much taller than Alec. You can make yourself look taller in any picture by tilting yourself sideways and standing a few inches closer to the camera.

From Gossip Group: "In pictures he looks really big. He claims to
be six feet one, but I saw him once when he was with Janine Turner and he
didn't look to be my height and I'm six feet"
M-Star said on 29/Jun/05
Unless I mistaken Alec for one of his brothers, I saw him @ a booklstore in NYC and he looked to be about 6"1".

He looked taller than Elle Mc Pherson in the movie with Anthony Hopkins ( can't recall the title ) ..
Must have been wearing super elevator shoes ...
Mr. R said on 14/Mar/05
Alec is quite a bit shorter than his little brothers, stephen excepted. The more I recall, I think alec was about 5'10" when I saw him.
Mr. Nice Guy said on 12/Mar/05
I haven't met Alec, but I have met Daniel and William, and there is no way Alec looks anywhere near the height of his two taller brothers. I was eye to eye with William and I'm 6'1", Daniel however was an even inch taller so he is certainly 6'2", not 6'1" like he's listed on here. I would say that from pictures even 5'11" is a stretch for Alec.
Mr. R said on 10/Mar/05
I also know that he can't stand the fact that Billy and "Celebrity Fit Club" brother Daniel are taller than him. Billy especially loves taking pictures with Alec, to prove how short he is!
Mr. R said on 10/Mar/05
Okay, I saw Alec several years ago in New York after he had finished doing the play MacBeth, with Angela Bassett. He passed by me several times in the lobby, wearing penny loafers, and I would say that he is 5'10.5". Can't tell you about the lifts.
TCPA said on 15/Feb/05
Alec Baldwin isn't more than 5'81/2" I've stood next to him, twice.
