He was probably a little bit over 5'11" in his prime and around 5'10.5" these days

Rob, how do you think of the weight of Bruce Willis? I think in the 175/180 range?
Editor Rob
Could see him at times in 180-90 range
Sinclair said on 18/Aug/20
I often struggle to see Bruce Willis as a true 6 foot man but he did look a strong 6 feet in the Miami Vice episode in which he guest starred in. Willis looked at least two inches taller than Philip Michael Thomas and maybe even three inches taller than Don Johnson in that episode. Perhaps, Willis’ footwear helped him out in that instance. I feel Tom Hanks was slightly taller than Willis when both men were in The Bonfire of The Vanities but the height difference was not that significant.

In 12 monkeys he hedged out Pitt, yeah this is correct, but I doubt Pitt ever been a honest 5’11 guy. As I said before I think 5’10.75 for Pitt but with a reserve of 5’10.5. If he seemed a bit taller I think Willis had to be a good half-inche taller than him and even in Armageddon (probably he wore lifts) he looked even taller than a flat 6’ next to Affleck. However I think Rob listing is fair
Slim 6'1" said on 7/Aug/20
edged out pitt in 12 monkeys by a little bit so nothing under 181 and a chance for 182

182.5cm peak like grant gustin, perfect upgrade 5 11 7/8
Ben Bell said on 18/Jul/20
Wow. I always thought he was 5’10.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/20
If he was a weak 6ft in afternoon/evening which many including myself believe he could have been, then it is likely he woke up minimum 6ft0½. The current peak is the lowest I’d argue.
OriginalAnon said on 12/Jul/20
184/185cm out of bed peak is outrageous.

Currently looks no taller than 178cm. I don't think he was over 181cm peak and was probably more like 180.5cm
jano said on 9/Jun/20
I doubt Bruce was ever that tall, if you look the pictures with Geena Davis (who i think was a legit 183 in her twenties, but looks only 182 in that days) he is 178-179 cm max, and both are in flats, although Bruce is in some very flat shoes. I would give 180.5-181 Bruce peak, and 179 these days.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Apr/20
Out of bed peak was easily 184-185cm
Hijoputamos said on 24/Mar/20
Hey Rob, how come he looked clearly shorter than Hanks in the Bonfire film? If Bruce was 5ft11 wouldn’t it be hard to spot him being shorter than Tom?
Editor Rob
Been a while since I looked at that film, but could you argue willis a flat 5ft11?

🎂🎁🎉💪 Happy Birthday Bruce! 💪🎉🎁🎂

Wishing Bruce Willis a Very Happy 65th Birthday! Lately, I've been seeing a great deal of 'Pulp Fiction' and he looks 6ft in that - no less, as indeed he did in 'The Sixth Sense'.

I bought a copy of M Night Shyamalan's film 'Glass' recently and I can't say he looks enormously shorter. 'Glass' is a film which combines the casts from 'Unbreakable' and 'Split', and it also stars Samuel L Jackson, James McAvoy and Sarah Paulson, so there are plenty of stars to compare him to.

Bruce's Birthday guess is 6ft for his peak and 5ft11.25 for today. 😁👍

Jkiller said on 5/Mar/20
Peak height was around 5 ft 11 1/4th (181cm), nowadays not over 180cm.

Looks the same size as me, round 5'11" and 185-190 lbs. I think he may have been a very weak 6' peak in his Moonlighting days. May stretch out to a smidge over 5'11 in the AM today. Tallish, but not overly so.
179cm guy said on 21/Mar/19
Rob, would you say that there's a greater chance of Bruce measuring at 5'11.25 or 5'11.75 at his peak?
Editor Rob
I'd have said an edge toward 11.75

Peak weak 5'11 maybe 5'10 n half

Rob, are you going to give Willis the downgrade to 5'10.75 for his current listing?
Editor Rob
By the time I decide, he may well have shrunk to that figure...

Thanks for your answer Rob! I found two other pictures of Willis next to Samuel L. Jackson from 1995:
Click Here Click Here
As I said, the comparison of the peak height Bruce Willis with the peak height Samuel L. Jackson is unfortunately difficult... However, looking at them next to each other today, I do not see only two inches between them! Besides, Willis does not look like a full four inches taller today than James McAvoy. Here are their latest photos on which Willis and McAvoy have thicker shoes than Samuel:

Now look at them when all three have similar footwear:

Two inches of difference between Willis and Samuel today is simply not enough! Rob, let Willis downgrade to 5'10.75" or at least give Samuel an upgrade to 6'1.25".
Editor Rob
Samuel actually can stand tall and look 186cm, Willis might be 5ft 10.75-11 zone could be that Samuel can look around 6ft 1 but stretches a fraction over it.

I admits that the peak height comparison of Samuel L. Jackson with Bruce Willis is a difficult comparison. Rob, what do you see more decent chance on, 6'2.25" for Samuel or 5'11.75" for Willis in their prime?
Editor Rob
I still feel somewhere around 5ft 11.5 as a peak fits overall, though I can see 11.75 as being the high end of a range. I don't know if I'd argue say 11.25 as a might be too low.
179cm guy said on 28/Feb/19
Rob, don't you think that Bruce might have dipped into the 179cm range by now?
Editor Rob
5ft 10.75 is possible.

Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Jan/19
I'm not sure if Bruce ever was much more than 5'11". He really could look 5'11.5" at times in the 80's and 90's, but he's looked 5'11" flat for at least a dozen years. The funny thing is I'd expect Bruce to have dropped to at least something like 5'10.75" by now, if not 5'10.5", yet he's still more than an inch taller than 5'10" listed M. Night Shyamalan: Click Here Click Here Click Here Granted, I don't think M. Night is a full 5'10", but Bruce also still edges 5'10.5" Stephen Colbert on video. Very strange Bruce would drop half an inch by his early 50's yet nothing else noticeable now in his early 60's.

@Sotiris: I guess Sly has never wanted to look 5'7" then because he never has. ;) Not tall or short, just average, but in a big man's world as you say. 174-175 cm just as his ex-wife said and Bruce is a couple of inches taller than Sly when Sly doesn't have his lifts, but nowhere near 4".
179cm guy said on 1/Jan/19
181cm peak. 179cm now. He's looked like a 5'11 guy his entire life.
Sotiris Gravas said on 1/Jan/19
@Robby Harris Sly could be any height he wanted to... like looking taller than Arnie and Willis:
Click Here When in reality, he was a tiny man in a big man's world:

FE said on 26/Dec/18
@Editor Rob,

How Long is his Head Exactly? Most people say his he has a Big Head, but I don't think it's any more than 9.5 or 9.75 @most.
Editor Rob
I do think near 9.75 is possible.
Animus said on 20/Nov/18
He was more of a 182cm guy than a 181cm guy in his prime, in my opinion. So, 5'11½ or 5'11⅝ seems like good guesses for prime Bruce.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/18
Dmeyer, Bruce would be edged by both of those guys peak
Dmeyer said on 15/Oct/18
Can look very similar to Washington and Travolta at peak
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Oct/18
@Robby: Yes, but technically Jtm's statement was correct. I mean what is imo the number 1 Stallone fan site says in the F.A.Q. that Sly is anywhere from 5'7" to 5'10.5" depending on the source so even Jtm's minimum statement demonstrates the absurdity of suggesting Stallone was similar height to Joe Pesci even while wearing elevator shoes.
Robby Harris said on 3/Oct/18
@Jtm: Stallone was a minimum of 174 cm in his prime. That's the absolute lowest. 5'7" was always a myth.
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@Rising: LOL
Jtm said on 2/Oct/18
stallone is at least 5'7.
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Oct/18
@Terrijcso: LOL. So then Stallone was 5'3.5" in elevators? Why do people even bother posting this stuff? Reminds me of the Escape from LA actress who said Kurt Russell was 5'3". Wonder how Stallone's 6 foot ex-wife Brigitte Nielsen could have mistaken her husband for 5'9" after living with him for 3 years? Let me guess, she's really 5'6.5"?
Terrijcso said on 30/Sep/18
In 83 84, I was In Atlantic City working on a case at the Sands. I got On the private elevator, and soon Sylvester Stallone hopped on. My partner bet me $20 that I was taller than Stallone. I am 5’7.5 and 5’10+ in heels. Needless to say, even with his elevator shoes, top of his head was under my nose. I only had 2” heels so 5’9.5. I LOST THE DAMN BET. He seems ok with it, and I was Shocked though as watching Rocky, had the illusion of being much taller- even Talia Shire and Mr. T are short! It’s all good, but NOWHERE NEAR 6ft!
Nice guy tho- not a creep :)

Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Aug/18
I pretty much agree with MAD SAM on this. Bruce still looks close to 5'11" and is slightly taller than 5'10.5" listed Colbert and even this year looks more than an inch taller than M. Night Shyamalan who Rob lists 5'10": Click Here I think M. Night is probably more 5'9.5", but Bruce actually doesn't look much shorter than he did over a decade ago. In fact, here's Bruce in 2000 looking shorter than 181 cm listed Matthew Perry: Click Here Click Here If you look at Bruce and Matthew on MTV's TRL in '04, Bruce is wearing boots and Perry is wearing Converse making it a near certainty Perry was taller by 2004. I already thought Bruce was 5'11" flat by age 50, but it looks possible he was only that tall in 2000 when he was only 45! If anything, I'd probably reverse Bruce's peak listing and Perry's listing.
MAD SAM said on 30/Jul/18
Peak height of 181 cm, right now 179.5 cm ; his whole life he looked a 5’11” guy
Caaq said on 23/Jun/18
Why is nicholas cage called 6 feet when he comes up to 6 feet when standing in front of a height board. He must have had an inch of shoe. And ok..his hair was flat. So should we not call him 5 11 then?
Caaq said on 22/Jun/18
Rob..please answer a very important question.
If an actor has a mug shot picture with average shoes on and standing pretty straight, then the mark he covers minus 2 inches will give pretty much his accurate height? And if bald then maybe minus one inch?

But Nicholas cage looks 6 feet in a mug shot and is also called 6 feet. Once he looked 6 1 in a mug shot, where he had shoes. And mostly he calls himself 6 1. Can u please explain? u know if the statues in Madame tussaud are made larger than real life? I think they add 2 inches or more on some.of them.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is much smaller than his wax figures for.sure...

Please post my comment and please reply...really need to know..

Bruce Willis my guess... about 6 foot .5 inch in shoes standing with good posture.
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jun/18
If Brucie offers you his Daddy's gold watch, make sure you wear plastic surgeons' gloves when handling it! If they're not available, then wash your hands afterwards! (Re: 'Pulp Fiction')

I always thought Bruce was in access of 6ft! He is one guy whose muscly physique does NOT shorten him; it does, in fact, make one think he's taller!

He is getting 5ft11 and a quarter-inch for today's height and 5ft11 and three-quarters for his sneaky, peaky, parky peak!
Xdan_75 said on 4/Jun/18
I saw him in Rome several years ago (sorry for my English, I'm an italian guy). I was surprise by the fact he was smaller than he appared in the movies. I would guess about flat 180 cm. In addition, a famous italian magazine (Ciak) claimed he was 179 cm during the first 90's.

Spotted him on the street recently. He was smaller than expected- wearing black sneakers with a decent heel. Seemed to be around 5'9"-5'10". Nowhere close to 5'11" or 6'.
Andy182cm said on 10/Mar/18
Hi,in my opinion his peak at his 30's and 40's was 180cm, maybe 181cm max max nothing more! So max 5.11.25 and not a fraction more. Now at 60's in his older days he lost maybe 1-2cm so I think a flat 5'10 now, cause is 2 inches taller than stallone who's 5'8 (about 174 for Sly), not more!!!!

Hollywood is fantasyland. Everything, especially height and weight, is made-to-order. The Only Way, Bruce Willis ever saw 180 cm is by looking up at someone. Besides, his actual height is irrelevant. More importantly is how big does he present himself. Lots of short actors are made to look bigger by having them stand on something. Also, extra high-heeled boots or shoes add inches. Put a lot of these dudes next to Jennifer Lawrence and see what happens.

What are you talking about? I don't even feel like bothering to point out how many ways in which your post doesn't make sense.

I would say 182.0 is likelier than this current listing.
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Dec/17
I've never actually seen Bruce claim 6'1" directly, however, he was listed at that height in his bio on his official site. Whether that's what Bruce told people directly, or what his PR came up with, I don't know. I remember Shredder mentioning Bruce claimed 6' on Letterman around 2009ish I suppose. I never saw it myself, but I guess Rob did to have added it and almost any legit 5'11" guy like Bruce will at least claim 6'. He's still near enough 5'11" -- I wouldn't go any lower than 5'10.75" even today -- and was at least a solid 5'11" until age 50, probably 5'11" and change. Bruce has been close to Arnie's height since the first Expendables, but back in the Planet Hollywood Days he was around a couple of inches shorter and still noticeably shorter even a decade ago.

But if you watch his first starring role in Blind Date, he's more than just an inch taller than Phil Hartman who Rob has 5'10". He doesn't seem as much as 5 inches shorter than 6'4" John Larroquette either and in general seems a solid "tallish" height.

Rob, when will Mr. Willis receive his well deserved 182 CM upgrade? He pulled it off in the 90’s films I’ve seen him tbh.
Jeremy said on 7/Nov/17
182-183 peak, in shoes 185. Today he’s probably in the 180-81 range. But I can’t see him under that
Slim 6' said on 29/Oct/17
Needs a 182 range upgrade.
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Oct/17
The thing is, I highly doubt Don Johnson was as tall as 5'9.5". In that very same episode, he's face to face with weak 5'9" Edward James Olmos indoors and looks shorter. But I'd say 5'9" flat back then for DJ, maybe 5'9.25" at best. He still had 3" on DJ, though so he could pull off 6 feet.

As for the average guess, I think the peak height guess is fair, as is Rob's listing, but the current height average guess is short-changing Bruce as he still tends to look about 5'11". Interestingly, they shot A Good Day to Die Hard in such a way that it's sometimes difficult to see a difference between Bruce and Jai Courtney, but then there are some shots that reveal Bruce noticeably shorter -- perhaps a couple inches -- and shorter than Sebastian Koch as well so 5'10.75" today is possible.
Slim 6' said on 10/Oct/17
Nothing under 5'11.75" peak.

It goes to show that the average guess is flawed and users always guess lower than rob without even looking at pictures or videos of the celeb.
Slim 6' said on 7/Oct/17
He really was 182 CM in his glory days, 5'11.5"-6'
That's how tall he looked in pulp fiction and twelve monkeys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/17
I saw that episode of Miami Vice. It was right before he got Moonlighting. If Johnson was 5ft9½, Bruce actually looked near 6ft1! No less than 6ft anyway.
Rising - 174 cm said on 1/Oct/17
He could pass for a weak 6' or 5'11.75"-6'0" at times in his prime. He looked it in Miami Vice as he had 3" on Don Johnson, who I believe was about 5'9" back then and an easy 2" or so on Philip Michael Thomas, who Rob lists 5'10". But Arnold was consistently a good 2" taller back in the 90's and weak 5'9" Sly(in cowboy boots) even pulled off looking Bruce's height in an early 90's Planet Hollywood video! So Bruce is a bit of a mystery to me looking closer to 6' and closer to 5'11" at different times. Dmeyer is right about the pic above. Bruce was 5'11" flat by Perfect Stranger and in general by age 50, but he doesn't look to have shrunk much more since, if at all as he still looks 5'11" or at worst, a fraction under. I'd say he was 181 cm by his late 40's judging by the 2003 video where he just edged George W. Bush by a hair, if you pardon the expression. Not a guy who seems to care about his height.
Slim said on 30/Sep/17
Solid 182/183 cms(6') in prime, needs an upgrade.

Rob I remember 10 years Glenn blew up at Demeyer for implying that Bruce Willis was 181-182cm in his peak. I do also remember you saying too Glenn after he lashed out at Demeyer "time out here Glenn"

I remember Glenn frequently saw Bruce at 6'1 and even 6'2 once. Do you think he got furious because he wanted too keep his 5ft8 dream alive by insisting Bruce was taller because he knew himself that no way he was 5'8 if Bruce was 5'11 range?
Editor Rob: sometimes he probably never realised he was on the shorter parts of sidewalks, I'm sure that would cause anybody guessing heights some confusion at times!
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Sep/17
I agree with highlysuspect, though more on the current height as there really hasn't been much evidence to suggest Bruce is down to 179. I'm not sure where that assumption comes from. Still looks like a 180 cm/near 5'11" guy. But probably 5'11.25"-5'11.5" range peak, imo. Wouldn't go quite as high as 182 as Arnold was always near 2" taller and even Sly on a good day could appear Bruce's height with his best pair of cowboy boots.

Actually, I'd say that film was literally right before Brad seemed to "grow" from strong 5'10"/weak 5'11" range to strong 5'11", even scraping a weak 6' at times. Pitt started looking taller to me around '96-'97. As for Bruce, I'd say the real argument is between whether he was always a 5'11" guy or 5'11.5" when young, or possibly in between. I'd put him at 181 cm, but no more with George Bush in 2003 as he just edged him out, but 5'11" flat by Live Free or Die Hard at 51-52 seeing him with Justin Long and Timothy Olyphant. No less, though as he was clearly taller than Clooney at that same time, as I posted on George's page: Click Here Click Here He still seemed to hold onto 5'11" during the first 2 Expendables and the 2 Red films from 2010-2013 seeing him look taller than John Malkovich and about the same as Mickey Rourke. I don't know if he's dropped a fraction the past 4 years - I honestly don't see much evidence of that - but I'd still say 5'10.75" minimum. I'm not sure why many are seeing Bruce in the 178-179 range. But 5'9" max Sly Stallone was able to look as tall as Bruce in the early 90s and Arnold was a good 2 inches taller or so. Sly could pull off 5'11", but could he pull off any more than that with cowboy boots and presumably lifts inside? It depends on whether you think Arnold was more 6'1" or 6'1.5" at that time as well. But Bruce did have a good 3 inches on Don Johnson when he guest-starred on Miami Vice and I peg Johnson in that same 5'8.5"-5'9" range as Sly while Rob has him 5'9.5", but Bruce looks over 5'11" with him either way. So I'd say Bruce looked more of a strong 5'11" range to me than Leo DiCaprio or Alec Baldwin. I'd either go with Rob's listing or the average guess for peak rather than a flat 5'11".

Bruce was flat on the ground, I believe in sandals or slippers. Speaking of brad, the poor thing must of tried to insert his lifts into those shoes!
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Aug/17
Not the best film for height comparisons, but I definitely thought Bruce was taller as well, partially due to the fact his head seems visibly bigger than Pitt's. I think Brad had more footwear as well since he wore these: Click Here And correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Bruce wearing slippers? I think Pitt at 5'10.5" is more likely than Bruce at 5'11.75". Of course, a difference can always look smaller or bigger than it is.
Slim 182 cm said on 9/Aug/17
In "twelve monkeys", Bruce Willis was 2 cm taller than brad pitt. This would make brad 5'10.75 or Bruce 5'11.75.
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Aug/17
I never heard the 6'3" illusion!! Wow. I remember Glenn insisting Bruce was 6'1" and could even look 6'2", but 6'3"? Even when I accepted what Glenn said uncritically, I had a tough time giving Bruce anything over 5'11.75" or so. I have seen Bruce pull off 6' once in a while, which would look 6'1" if Glenn is taking himself at 5'8", but 6'3"? I've never seen the Letterman clip where Bruce apparently finally claimed a height, but Glenn's reaction to seeing Bruce claim a flat 6' would be interesting. Then again, that hasn't stopped him from putting guys who claim 5'10" like Stallone, Gibson and Colin Farrell at 5'11". Or Will Smith claiming 6'2" and Glenn giving him 6'3".

Here's Bruce 10 years ago with a real 6'1" man Kevin Costner: Click Here Both were the exact same age - 52 with Bruce a whopping 2 months younger - and Costner is clearly taller without exception in the entire series of photos that night. Bruce may have lost a fraction by then since I can buy anywhere from 5'11"-5'11.5" peak, but a flat 5'11" by that point based on Live Free or Die Hard. How tall did Glenn say Justin Long was? Certainly not 5'9" if Bruce was 6'1". I'd also give Bruce 181 cm max by late 40s since he seemed to just barely edge out George W. Bush on video.

As for The Last Boy Scout, I'd agree it was probably closer to 2 inches. And yes, that movie was awesome. "Touch me again and I'll kill ya." "Told you."

He was about an inch shorter, not more, than 187 Damon Wayans in the 1991 masterpiece "the last boyscout". I think he was around 6 even when young, don't you think Rob?

Not really true, is you watch that movie more carefully he consistently looks over an inch smaller, much closer to two inches. If Damon Wayans is 6'1" then Bruce is much closer to 5'11" than 6 feet, at least in 1991. And yes, that movie is a classic.

Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Jul/17
Here's a tough one, who was taller in 2010, Mickey Rourke or Bruce Willis?

Full pics: Click Here
Video: Click Here

They look pretty much identical in the pics to me, though if I had to say one appeared taller in the pics, I'd guess Bruce by 1/4" or less, however I still can't tell from the video, but would probably guess Mickey taller if I had to choose who appeared taller in the video, but then Mickey's shoes may have slightly bigger heels.

I'd have to say that a 55 year old Bruce and 57-58 year old Mickey were both bang on 5'11". As far as Bruce's height, I'd say by late 40s, he was 181 cm and then based on seeing him next to Timothy Olyphant and Justin Long when Live Free or Die Hard came out, he was 5'11" flat by early 50s and as far as I can tell, he's still around that height. So my best guess is a little gradual height loss. Whether he was as tall at his peak as Rob lists him or never taller than 181 is the question. Seeing a weak 5'9" Sly Stallone able to look at least as tall as Bruce on video makes me wonder: Click Here

Sly has pulled off 5'11" enough, but could he really be pulling off 5'11.5" there? I guess it depends on whether Arnold was more 6'1" flat or 6'1.5" by that time since I would say he's about 2 inches taller than Bruce.
RisingForce said on 15/Jul/17
@Richard: What I mean is that I would say 179 is at least a reasonable guess for someone to make so I wouldn't say someone guessing 179 is trolling, but I personally haven't seen any evidence posted to show Bruce is that low yet.
RichardSpain said on 13/Jul/17

About last you said, In "Current option" you can see people here give to Willis 179. That's the average here in this moment.

And Rob gives Willis 180 cm nowadays but it is his opinion very respectable of course.
RisingForce said on 12/Jul/17
Bruce and Morgan Freeman in 2010: Click Here

I suppose Freeman was 187 cm at that time at age 73 and he looks maybe 2.5" taller than Bruce to me, possibly a bit more if he stood straighter.
RisingForce said on 11/Jul/17
That photo is now 7 years old and Willis wasn't 3 cm shorter than Arnold at that event. Arnold may have still been near 6 feet at that time, but 182 range was already possible, either slightly above or below 182. Bruce was definitely more 180 then. Likely 5'11" or at worst 5'10.75" seeing him with Mickey Rourke that year and I've seen no real evidence he's shrunk much more, if at all the last 7 years. In fact, a year later in 2011, Bruce still looked an easy 1.5" taller than Matt Damon, who I'd say is 176.5 cm: Click Here Sly was still likely at his peak height in 2010, so I'd say 174.5 to 175 cm, but 174 has always been arguable for him.

Nowadays, I'd say as short 179.5 is possible for Bruce, but I'm not actually seeing evidence posted on this page to indicate he could be 179.
RichardSpain said on 10/Jul/17
Nowadays Willis is under 180 cm.

Here next to Arnold and Stallone.

Click Here

I give to them:

Willis 179cm
Arnold 182cm
Stallone 174cm

They will not be more than that guys!
RisingForce said on 7/Jul/17
Somewhere in the 5'11" range peak, so it's pretty reasonable he claimed 6 feet. Very few his height wouldn't. Nowadays, I see him at 5'10.75" at worst. 179 still seems a bit low, but maybe by age 65 he will be.
even said on 5/Jul/17
i think at 21 he was 181 cm
and now hes 179 cm
ok said on 5/Jul/17
Atm he looks 5"10

Yes !willis wasn't 6 foot I think he was a solid 181cm in his younger days. Nowadays he seems 179cm barefoot.

5 foot 11 . He is below 6 foot.
Ted said on 25/Jun/17
5' 11.5'' peak. Never anything over that.
S.J.H said on 19/Jun/17
He claim 6'1 but more on 5'11 peak. Hollywood actors all claim 2-3' higher than barefoot untill rob nail their claiming height here. Justin Timerlake daring to claim up 6'2 and look no taller than 5'11 so Willis must be around 5'10.5 now.
AlexItaly said on 17/Jun/17
He was about an inch shorter, not more, than 187 Damon Wayans in the 1991 masterpiece "the last boyscout". I think he was around 6 even when young, don't you think Rob?
Morningheight 181.5cm said on 4/Jun/17
I think he could max out at 181cm or 5'11 1/4 nowadays.
Undertaker Frank said on 4/Jun/17
Mark your right his Wax figure looked tall i believe he was @ best 5ft 11 i have a friend who took a picture with him and he looked alittle shorter than me and im 5ft 11.5 His wax figure looked close to 6ft 2 in boots
mark said on 25/May/17
his wax figure was pretty tall like around 6ft 1. idk maybe cuz of his steel boots but im six feet and he was my hight or a bit taller
RisingForce said on 13/May/17
Another photo of Bruce and Jai Courtney better: Click Here Bruce looks 181 cm, imo, but of course Courtney could be 184 cm, in which case, Bruce would be not much above 5'11". Bruce did seem an easy 5'11" in Red, imo. He was taller than Malkovich throughout the film, didn't look that much shorter than 184 cm Karl Urban and looked to have about a couple of inches on 5'9" James Remar. I still think he could be 5'11", but has probably been that height since Live Free or Die Hard seeing him with Timothy Olyphant and Justin Long. I think he was still more 181 cm at age 50. 5'10" peak is ridiculous, he's still easily taller than that. He wasn't far from his claim, in fact, virtually any man is going to claim 6 feet at Bruce's peak height.
Nope said on 30/Apr/17
He was about 3 inches shorter than 6' 1" David Schwimmer in his appearance on FRIENDS.

No taller than 5' 10" in his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/17
I think 20-30 years ago he looked near 6ft.

He was solid 181/182cm guy not less and not more

Today perfect 180cm sure
Johnny said on 18/Apr/17
He looked 5ft 10.5 range with Karl Urban. But Urban had footwear advantage so 5ft 11 is the most for Willis now.
RisingForce said on 10/Apr/17
Seems like Bruce has lost most of his height since age 50, here he is at age 49 with 171-172 cm Cruise and 175 cm Jamie Foxx: Click Here He has a bit of a camera advantage over Cruise (but Tom has better posture) and better posture than Foxx, but it's hard to believe anything less than 181 cm, which is what he looked with George W. Bush, if Bush was 180 cm: Click Here (10:34 and last 10 seconds of video) 1/4" height loss by late 40s isn't uncommon. By 2012, he still seemed to be hanging on to 5'11" with 5'9" Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Click Here Of course, if he were still 182 cm, he'd be nearly 6'1" in most shoes and wouldn't look like this with his 5'10" wife in heels: Click Here Click Here Click Here To be clear, he's still obviously taller than her when she doesn't wear heels: Click Here The average guess seems a bit harsh, Bruce could possibly still scrape 5'11". 5'10.75" to a weak 5'11" is probably the best guess for his current height.
RisingForce said on 7/Apr/17
Bruce is more enigmatic then you'd think he'd be. 10 years ago, he struggled to look 2" taller than 5'9" Justin Long, yet around that same time, he was clearly taller than 179 cm Clooney and just a few years before I could easily buy 181 cm looking at Bruce with Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise as well as 5'9.5" Matt Damon who he had an easy 1.5", maybe 2" in Ocean's Twelve. He can still look his apparent peak height of 5'11.5" if Jai Courtney is almost 6'1": Click Here yet that looks simultaneously true compared to Courtney here, but impossible with an admitted 182 cm Sebastian Koch in the same picture: Click Here Koch usually looks taller than Willis, but they can look pretty close: Click Here At his peak, he really did look taller than just a flat 5'11" in many comparisons. Rampage's 5'11.75" guess isn't impossible, but I wouldn't go any higher. Pretty reasonable claiming 6 feet.
Really said on 7/Apr/17
Met him in Hawaii, on a good day I'm 5'8"1/2. Hah, it's funny he's that tall I must be 6'0" especially if I'm standing on a park bench. I'm average at best yet some how I was taller than he was back then. I must be using a different standard. I do not count my shoes. Obviously if I did I'd be five eleven or 6'0" and around 3 inches taller than him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/17
I think he could actually have been 5ft11¾(182cm) and wore big shoes to look 6ft1 range.
Flyin said on 4/Apr/17
Yeah I can see that 180cm here and 181.5cm at peak. Rob have you amended this listing from a while ago?. I also think Clooney could be 179cm BTW.

i think in willis case you cant judge his height from the movies becuase they try to make hom look 6 foot 1 in them. In real life photos i think 181 is a good shout and today probably 1 cm shorter
Johnny said on 24/Mar/17
With 6ft 1 Kevin Costner. Click Here Click Here Click Here
RisingForce said on 16/Mar/17
He could always give a 5'11" flat impression at times, even when young, but this listing is as good a guess as any since he made Don Johnson look about 5'8" on Miami Vice and here's an example of Bruce looking tall with 6' Tom Hanks: Click Here I do think he wasn't much above 5'11" by age 50 and certainly 5'11" max by age 55, though he seemed a bit taller than John Malkovich in the Red Films and premieres, but he can often look short when his 5'10" wife wears heels so 5'10.75" is probably the best guess currently.
César said on 15/Mar/17
If you search in Google: Bruce Willis, Paul Reiser, "The Birth: Part 2", you can see a picture of BW barefoot, standing in front of PR (5.9ft 75)with shoes. Reiser was slightly taller. You can see that episode of Mad about you also, where Willis is escaping of a hospital without shoes.

Balrog said on 1/Jan/17
Is good to remember that Willis was on 'Friends' when he was 45. And he was shorter than 181cm listed Matthew Perry. So unless Perry is taller (who he might be but not by much) I doubt Willis at peak were over 5'11".

5'11" peak and 5'10.5" now heading to 5'10" flat.

he is a guy that they make look bigger than he is in the movies i think he looked little taller than 6 footer william fichtner is armageddon. But in rally he was probably 182 and could fall litte below a guy like bill paxton was 1 cm taller in my eyes.these days he is 180-180,5 lost about 1,5 cm

I met him in 1989. I'm 5-7 and was a shade taller than Willis in heels. He's 5-9/5-10.

Most actors are shorter and thinner than you think they are. They look taller on screen because of how they are filmed and because they are ALL relatively small people. Guys who are actually 6 feet and muscular look enormous on film.

Rob, If you watch any of his stuff before Bond he looks it...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Apr/16
Rob, could you put Brosnan at 6ft1½ peak and 6ft1 flat today?

Doesn't look to have lost more than ½in at 62 and it could possibly be less than that (alternatively 6ft1¾ peak, 6ft1¼ today).
Editor Rob: I've never quite decided on whether the 1.5 peak is the right mark or not.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Apr/16
@Rob, Willis is younger than Brosnan yet you've got a peak height and downgrade. Do you not think Brosnan has lost anything too? Doesn't look 186 any longer to me.
Editor Rob: I think Pierce probably has lost a 1/4, but putting 1/4 inch losses peak/current I'm not sure on. If an actor says it though, I would do it.

5ft 10in for Bruce Willis it's out of the question"

Rob, I think 5ft11¾ in the Moonlighting/Die Hard years is a strong possibility. Could pass for a 6ft guy at least half the time. Barefoot he wasn't much shorter than Alan Rickman in shoes. Armageddon was a strange one. Watching that I'd have guessed 6ft1! I sincerely doubt he's ever been that mark without shoes though...
berta said on 6/Apr/16
Rob what are the chances that he was just a fraction under 6 feet when he was Young? When you look back at armagedon and die hard he can look 183
Editor Rob: a 1/4 inch off 6ft is never impossible
James B said on 3/Apr/16
Looked 5'10 1/2 compared to Jonathan Ross 10 years ago

Rob, do you have any guesses for Alexander Godunov?

Best known as the big blonde terrorist in the 1st Die Hard. I can't find a decent picture for height but just to put a name to face. He's been described 6ft2 up to 6ft5. He did look a fair bit taller than Alan Rickman and towered over Wills, so I wouldn't guess he was under 6ft2.

Looked 5ft11¼ in RED
hijopotamus said on 10/Feb/16
Rob, how come Willis is only 180 when he was clearly taller than Brad Pitt??
Wait...ok, Brad is obviously shorter than 180.
Editor Rob: peak he's listed 11.5, but in 12 monkeys that scene has 12-15 degree camera tilts at times.

Hanks was aleast my height 10 years back and more likely 0.5in taller so 6ft and he was 48 so possibly lost 0.5cm by then since he looked 5'11.75-6ft
dmeyer said on 9/Feb/16
Willis is doing ok near 189 kutcher and 193cm hasselhoff , and does look a bit over 5ft 11 at peak near guys like wayans , jackson , arnold , peak 5'11.25-11.5 now 5'10.75-11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Feb/16
"Hanks was never over 5'11""

Yeah ok...Chevy Chase was at least 6ft5 and Arnold struggles to hit 5ft10 now. You're the go to guy, Danimal. Rob should definitely groom you to be his successor as site editor.

Fifteen or twenty years ago, on the boardwalk in Atlantic City, I stopped by the rail to look at the Hard Rock Cafe. The guy next to me, I realized, was Bruce Willis. He stared at me, as if I might ask for an autograph, then walked to the cafe. With shoes on I was a little over 5'11". I think he had on cowboy boots. Anyhow, he was slightly shorter than me. I'd say 170 pounds. Not physically intimidating, but he can eyeball you into the ground.
Aza said on 15/Jan/16
Looks a solid 5'11 . Hasn't lost much since peak . Easily cleared 6 ft in shoes.
Shan said on 30/Dec/15
He looks around 5' 10"
Atsu said on 30/Dec/15
Wills may have lost few inches maybe he could be 183 cm tall and but I seen him some movies and appears be 182 cm. I guest now his height could be 5'11.75 guest.
nathaniel said on 15/Nov/15
seen him 1 year ago 6 foot 1
Dmeyer said on 10/Nov/15
Willis never wore lifts but he did wear thick boots at Times Like in armaggeddon , or on some events in the 1.6in style but he more oftenly wear 1in or under than 1in or over , Guys Like sly or arnie évén when without lifts allways wear 1.1-1.4ish style
Les said on 7/Nov/15
I'm 6'1" and stood next to him once (about 15 years ago). He looked to be about my height. I don't think he was wearing lifts or anything like that.
the shredder said on 3/Nov/15
He looked close to 6'0 honestly.
Danimal said on 1/Nov/15
177cmGuy said on 21/Sep/14
6'0 peak. 5'11 current. He won't be a flat 5'10 until he's close to 70

Men don't lose 2" by 70. They lose just over an inch.
Danimal said on 1/Nov/15
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/15
Actually he was looking shorter than 6ft guys (Hanks, Travolta, Washington) even in the 90' order for him to have been that, he'd need to look over that mark.

Hanks was never over 5'11".
dmeyer said on 1/Oct/15
Today at night wath is more likely 5'10.5 10.75 or 11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/15
During the Moonlighting/Die Hard years he might have brushed 6ft.

Rob, in their prime who do you think was taller Bruce Willis or Alec Baldwin?
[Editor Rob: hard to call that.]

I think they were same height! However if I have to bet if was "more 5'11.5" Willis or Baldwin I would say Willis!

I'd love to find those Letterman interviews...
Swparker19 said on 28/Jun/15
my wife met Bruce Willis back in the day at Donzi's, a bar in Pittsburgh at the time he was filming striking distance. My wife is 5'7" and in those days most certainly wore 3-4 inch heals. She estimated his height at 5'7" at the most as she was looking down on him.
honest small guy 5'6" said on 21/Jun/15
Hey those pics with ED Norton, Bill Murray clearly show them in various pics sa next to each other for actual pictures for the show. Murray looks 3 inches taller and Norton is also taller than willis. They all have similar dress shoes almost exact. I think willis was never over 5'11". With shoes everyone is 6 foot. I think he needs a downgrade.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jun/15
182-183cm peak
j said on 27/May/15
he had to be 6 feet at his peak but said he was 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/15
"He looked really muscular in his prime"

One of the reasons he stood out as the 3rd big action star was because he didn't have conventional physique that counterparts Arnold and Sly had. He's even admitted that he hates working out.
Dmeyer said on 3/May/15
I could see willis 181.5cm 179.5-80cm now he looks about 5'11 dosnt look a small as 5' 10.5 very fit Guy

Any guesses on his weight at his peak rob?

Will have to disagree with the comments about Willis looking taller than Brad Pitt in "12 Monkeys" and shorter than Matthew Perry on "Friends" or in the movie "Whole Nine Yards". I thought he looked spot-on even with both actors. I mean there were shots of Willis/Pitt in the mental ward in 12M where Willis was closer to the camera giving the appearance he was taller, however, later in the movie when the two are right next to each other- exactly the same height. As far as Perry, looked about exactly the same too. Maybe Willis, barefoot end of day height, is actually only 5'10.5"-??
[Editor Rob: the camera angles in Monkeys weren't really conventional horizontal styles.]
gez said on 24/Feb/15
Never been anything over 5' 11" in his life. A 5'10.4 today, a weak 5' 11" standing completely straight at his peak.
CDS said on 23/Feb/15
To me, this guy looks about 5'11", but can certainly pull off 6'1" in his movies, due to good posture, and having a well-proportioned build. While living in Cali, my cousin saw him in person, along with James Garner filming the movie "Sunset", back in 1987. He described Willis as "tall and thin". Interesting since my cousin himself is 6'2". I'm going to go with a good solid 5'11" barefoot (6' in shoes). He looked taller than John Malkovich in the movie "RED" (who claims 6'1", but most on here who've seen him in person say he's actually barely 5'11"). He looked a hair shorter than 6' John Travolta in "Pulp Fiction". And going back to his early career (probably before any major lift-wearing- IF he's a lift-wearer), he looked only about an inch taller than 5'10" Phil Hartman in the movie "Blind Date".

Anyone here watch the tv series ''Moonlighting'' ???

In that great 80s tv show:

Bruce Willis height is 5ft 11.5in (182 cm)
Cybill Shepherd height: 5ft 8in (173 cm)

Definitely this.

5ft 10in for Bruce Willis it's out of the question.
annon said on 18/Feb/15
Willis did have about an inch on pitt in twelve monkeys. Pitt had some special shoes. I think willis was a strong 5'11" peak and pitt at most 5'10.
Johnny said on 18/Feb/15
Mickey rourke appears to be taller than willis in pics who is also listed 1.80???
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/15
Could have been 6ft in the 80's. Looked every bit of it in Die Hard and Moonlighting.
Hypado said on 10/Feb/15
People of celebheights, i watch today, The Fifth Element, a great movie by the way.

Bruce Willis - 182/183 cm
Milla Jokovich - 173/174 cm

Dmeyer said on 9/Feb/15
Peak solid 5'11.5 now 5'10.75-11

Had an inch on Brad Pitt in Twelve Monkeys, Pitt in shoes, Willis had slippers. Pitt is a weak 5'11 in my opinion so Willis being a weak 6' at peak seems reasonable to me.
Joe said on 26/Jan/15
I think he was around 5'11" in his prime, possibly a bit over 5'10 but him claiming to be 6 feet is just silly. I think a little bit over 5'10" would be just right for him, Samuel L Jackson just towered over him in Unbreakable and there was a scene where the two were facing each other face to face, and Jackson had at least 5 inches on him, so I am guessing he is 5'10" and nothing more without shoes.
Steve said on 20/Jan/15
Just because he was barefoot through most of one movie, doesn't dismiss the fact he wears lifts in many features. He had huge ones in both Armageddon and The Fifth Element.
184.3cm said on 19/Jan/15
Yes Steve that is right he was..So much for being a lift wearer eh? Close to 6' at peak, guy had no problem at all running around barefoot next to tall guys.
teej said on 18/Jan/15
I could buy 6ft. On die hard he does look a strong 182cm if not 183cm. I think he's lost more than a cm of height, he's probably 180cm now so a strong 5'10 or weak 5'11. But in his prime i do believe he was 6ft
Steve said on 15/Jan/15
Willis was barefoot through much of the film.
