@Rob, is a current height really necessary for him anymore, considering how he's retired due to complications with dementia?
Editor Rob
Yeah it might be best putting him back to peak.
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Apr/23
I’m watching Bruce playing Butch the Boxer in Pulp Fiction, and I’m wondering whether there are any families out there who have heirlooms which have been carried around in a member’s @rse for any length of time!

5ft11.25 peak and 5ft11 now. ⏱😂👌🏼🍑🤣

I saw him in M Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense the other day. He doesn’t look visibly shorter today.

He was already 5'11" in "Pulp fiction" (1994).

Rob, do you reckon Bruce would measure 6ft first thing in the morning in his hay days??
Editor Rob
Yes, I can't see him being anything under 6ft early in the day.

Bruce Willis is in his late 60s and only lost a half inch? A modern marvel.
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Sep/22
How awful to hear that this hard working actor has brain disease.

I’ll remember him in my prayers.
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Sep/22
Wasn’t Bruce terrific in ‘The Sixth Sense’, and ‘Armageddon’ for that matter?

5ft11 today and half-an-inch more for his peak.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Sep/22
The 80s is now like the 60s when I was a kid to anybody in their teens and twenties, the "old days" LOL. I still don't think of the 80s and 90s as "old".. Very sad that he has a brain disease. 67 years old, might have lost near an inch now.
berta said on 27/Sep/22
Sad to hear he got a brain disease. He made some very good movies in the old days. Peak anywhere from 181-182,5 is possible. Today anywhere from 179,5-181. I think he was 181,4 ish and today 180.

Rob, could Bruce Willis be only 179cm today?
Editor Rob
By this point, I wouldn't rule out strong 179cm

Hi Rob,

Please add Emma Heming to this site, she is at least 5’10 1/2” next to Bruce here: Click Here
Andy Cash said on 15/Jun/22
At 5 11 which I believe he is, he is the perfect height. Many men are 5v11 but claim to be 6 ft. He may even be 5 10.5 but he carries himself well and dominants any film scene such that you see him bigger. One of the best actors of the last 30 years. Peaked with Pulp Fiction but loved him in moonlighting.
Rising174cm said on 30/Apr/22
Bruce was given a half inch height loss here as far back as 2008 and he did seem 5'11" flat as far back as 2007 with Justin Long and Timothy Olyphant during Live Free or Die Hard. I sometimes wonder how much over 5'11" he ever was because he didn't seem to shrink much more after early 50s, but he did really look 5'11.5" on Miami Vice.
viper said on 2/Apr/22
Half an inch is quite a bit at his age
Rapha said on 4/Feb/22
For someone being 66 years old, he has not shrunk much.

AverageSlovene said on 1/Jan/22
Him claiming 6 feet isn’t really inflating, it is probably his morning height. He is no Sly (or his “six one” brother Frank) when it comes to height claims, I personally think peak Bruce would edge out Vin (i just posted a comment on his page too). Looked a good inch shorter than Alan Rickman (who i think truly is the 6’0.75 he is listed at).
Rising174cm said on 22/Dec/21
By the time Bruce was seen with 5'11.75" listed Timothy Olyphant, he was likely no longer his peak height. 2007 was when Rob first gave him a current height of 5'11", iirc, and it's partially because of how he looked promoting Live Free or Die Hard, particularly with 5'9" listed Justin Long. Click Here Click Here Long appears to be a bit closer to the camera and Bruce looks to be bending one knee in the second pic, but Long is wearing Converse so there's really no way Bruce appears over 5'11" with him. Long isn't wearing Converse here and again appears closer with a bigger heel than Bruce's shoes, but Bruce again seemed to be 5'11" max with him: Click Here Click Here

A half inch loss by early 50s is not much of a stretch, but it's odd because I agree that he still pulled off 5'11" at least into his 60s. So losing a half inch by early 50s and then nothing more or nothing else noticeable for the 10-15 years after that is what seems odd to me. Bruce was pretty much identical to 5'11" listed Mickey Rourke in full pics and video from the 2010 Expendables premiere, which confirms he was roughly 5'11" flat between 50-55. But as of 2018, 5'10.75" was still the absolute lowest I'd guess Bruce at age 63. He did still edge 5'10.5" Stephen Colbert in 2015 as well.

But there's also the comparison to 5'11.25" listed Matthew Perry from about 2000 and it's doubtful Bruce would have lost much by then.

I do acknowledge he could look taller, such as when he appeared on Miami Vice. I haven't seen all of Armageddon since it was in theaters, but everything I have seen suggests he looked taller in that as well.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/21
I think Willis can still make 5ft11 today. Peak not under 5ft11½ with a chance of 5ft11¾ but I'm not as convinced on him hitting the full 6ft afternoon time. He got beaten out by Travolta, Hanks, Washington, Olyphant and a number of other 6ft range dudes.

Definitely same as arnie. Or possibly more. 5-11 or just under.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 7/Nov/21
Taller than a flat 5'11 peak for sure but 5'11.5? I'm not convinced. He looked 5'11.25 in the first three die hard films I thought and was only 1-1.25 inches taller than 5'10 Billy Bob in Bandits.

I would actually give Bruce Willis 5'11 1/4" or 181 cm since he is the same height as Leonardo DiCaprio.

Bruce was the same height (barefoot ) as Paul Reiser (176,5 cm) in an episode of Mad about you. He was playing a mad man.
Rich Paul said on 11/May/21
Someone explain why Willis’s wife who’s listed at 5-10 is taller in every photo taken of the couple. Sometimes by an inch up to three inches. That would mean she’s as much as 6-3 in heels. I just don’t buy it. I do believe Willis is no more than 5-10.
E.Zoltan said on 1/May/21
Probably 182 cm peak and 179.5 cm now
berta said on 30/Apr/21
i think he was somewhere from 181 to 182 peak. probably 181,5, the strange thing is that tom hanks locked way taller in a movie together. it looked like 184 vs 180 maybe. but in reality i think hanks very legit 6 feet ( maybe couple mm over) and bruce 181-181,5
Bradley said on 16/Apr/21

Maybe a couple hours after waking. I’d say 5’11.5 and 5’10.75 today but close enough

Editor Rob
if he wore them at times on Moonlighting he would have passed for 6ft plus quite easily
BT said on 18/Feb/21
@Rising174cm: I'm not saying he's 179 flat just yet, more that he will reach that mark soon. Near 179.5 cm is probably still a safe bet. Entering mid/late 60's I wouldn't be surprised at anyone losing 1.5-2 cm.
Sammy 6'5" said on 10/Feb/21
I would honestly believe 6'0, in pulp fiction he is a little under an inch taller than ving rhames, who seemed to be a little bit over 5'11
Rising174cm said on 6/Feb/21
@BT: I generally agree with you, although if Bruce is really only 5'10.5" then M. Night Shyamalan is more 5'9" than even 5'9.5", much less 5'10". Although with 5'8" Mark Wahlberg, he could actually look that: Click Here Bruce was still a bit taller than 179 cm Colbert back in 2015, but even while they were promoting the first Expendables, Mickey Rourke was definitely at least as tall as Bruce, if not a hair taller. You could argue Bruce looks below 5'11" more recently with Samuel L. Jackson who himself was looking similar height to 6'1" Barry Bonds in the early 2000s.
BT said on 5/Feb/21
My best guess for Willis' peak is 181 cm. Hard to see a comfortable 182 or near 183 with most people, though he could look it at times. He was definitely down to 180 ish by early/mid 50's, and looks to be closer to 179 today in mid/late 60's.
Rising174cm said on 4/Feb/21
For those that don't remember Bruce was looking just 5'11" flat by 2007, here's Bruce that year with 5'9" Justin Long who you can see was wearing Converse: and at another event with Long: Not the best pic, but he was definitely shorter than 182 cm range Timothy Olyphant: Here's a better, albeit not full pic showing Bruce shorter than Olyphant again: (Long was in Converse at that event as well)

Of course, that's bad news for Clooney's Hope's of being a mm over 5'10.5" peak as Bruce looked 2 cm taller at that time in a series of photos, including a full one, but I digress.

But while a half inch loss by 52 would be perfectly typical, if Bruce shrunk the average, you'd expect him to have shrunk an inch by 65 and that doesn't seem to be the case. Here's Bruce at age 62 still looking a full 5'11" with M. Night Shyamalan: Click Here Click Here Granted, M. Night looks much more 5'9.5" than 5'10" to me, but Bruce still has more than just an inch on him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Feb/21
slim, ok Paxton and Liotta I might give slightly better odds of hitting the 6ft mark in their prime. Baldwin and Willis on the other hand were both generally edged out by solid 6ft dudes (e.g. Washington, Travolta and even Hanks).
houss said on 1/Feb/21
You start to believe that willis is around the 6' mark then comes this
David Russell said on 20/Jan/21
There's no way he is anywhere near 6 ft. I'm 6 ft tall and I met him. He was a lot shorter than me. I would put him at 5 foot 6, maximum
slim 6'1 said on 30/Jan/21
Rampage, I reckon ray liotta is nearer 6’ than 5’11”
Rising174cm said on 29/Jan/21
Bruce could look 5'11.5", even 6' at times in his 80s and 90s acting roles. I don't remember him looking more than 2" shorter than 6'1.5" Damon Wayans in The Last Boy Scout so I'll buy 5'11.5" peak. But Bruce was more 5'11" flat by 50ish so I don't know. A 1 cm loss by 50 is typical, but then did he lose 1/2" by early 50s and then nothing noticeable the last 15 years? That seems odd. I used to think Liotta was 6'0" and he could look 3" taller than De Niro - who may or may not have been 5'9", but now I think the 5'11.5" suits him and he's no more than 5'11" flat himself these days. As for Baldwin, I've mentioned before that my cousin grew up with the Baldwins(he was mainly friends with Stephen whom he kept in touch with) and there's universal agreement among everyone I know who has met or seen Alec that he was only about 5'11" flat. Now, he might be just under that.I don't expect anyone to just take my word for it, but I'm pretty certain of it. I'd give Liotta a better chance of a solid 182 cm peak than Willis and especially Baldwin.

@Rob: Btw, did you ever see Bruce's 6 ft claim yourself? I know Shredder mentioned it and I trust he wouldn't lie, but I was never able to find that appearance on Letterman myself(I think it was winter '08-'09).
Editor Rob
I could never find the video, Shredder did seem adamant he said it.

Rising174cm said on 21/Jan/21
He wasn't taller than 5'11.5", but could look 6 feet in the Miami Vice episode he appeared in. He seriously had a good 3" on Don Johnson and at least 2" on Philip Michael Thomas. He's appeared more like 5'11" flat since around age 50 so he's probably below that by now.
David Russell said on 20/Jan/21

Weak 6ft, never gave off a big impression in the die hard movies but in pictures with Arnie and sly he's definitely close to 6ft prime, my guess is 5ft11 5/8ths and 5ft10.75 today maybe a tiny bit more

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.
Hulk.23 said on 15/Aug/20
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

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?

🎂🎁🎉💪 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?

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:
Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Now look at them when all three have similar footwear:
Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
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.

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".

@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.

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.

stallone is at least 5'7.

@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"?

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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!

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.

Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Aug/17
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".
Slim 182 cm said on 13/Aug/17
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Richardspain said on 24/Apr/17
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.

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.

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.
RichardSpain said on 4/Apr/17
I think Willis was 182m in peak, today maybe 181 or 180cm.
mister_lennon said on 4/Apr/17
Maybe 182 out of bed at peak.
mister_lennon said on 4/Apr/17
I think that he was more in the 180-181 range at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Apr/17
Solid 182cm peak, no less
Ramualdo said on 1/Apr/17
Peak was 178 cm
Now is 176 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/17
I think a weak 6ft in the Moonlighting/Die Hard years
berta said on 30/Mar/17
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.
Jason said on 11/Mar/17
You have to remember that Stallone wears lifts alot. He looks a legit 5-11 to 6ft guy to me
berta said on 9/Mar/17
under 180 at peak is to low and over 182 is to high. i think 181 could be better listing. today i dont know. maybe 179 range?
josh jeffords said on 7/Mar/17
Said it before I'll say it again he is an average height man nothing more.
Great actor in the past no idea what happened to him but he has stunk lately.
Every 6 ft plus guy has towered him hes 5 10 .5 max peak.
I have a 5 11 .5-.75 buddy bad posture no tall person towers him even measures up well to very tall.
KH said on 2/Mar/17
Strong 5'11 in his prime. Travolta had about an inch on him in Pulp Fiction.

thew more time goues on the samller i think he is. a guy like nicolas cage would have 2 cm on him easy at peak. arnold at about 185-86 was 5 cm taller also
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Feb/17
Oh no! I've fallen for some more bulls*** once again! I was told Bruce was 'well over 6ft' and although I disputed this, I didn't have the last say! Personally, I thought Bruce's peak height was 'about 6ft', so I win! 😣😝
Normal. Tall guy said on 4/Feb/17
5'9 n thats all anything more is just ridiculous
berta said on 31/Jan/17
what about peak 181 and current 179? and arnold peak 186 and current 181. stallone peak 176 current 173
S.J.H said on 20/Jan/17
Present bruce willis and david beckham is both 5'10.5 but a peak willis is strong 5'11
berta said on 10/Jan/17
yeah somethin is wrong when matthew perry is listed 1 cm shorter and looks 1- 1,5 cm taller i think it should be bruce willis peak 181 and matthew perry strong 182 guy. Bruce looked like a 183 guy in movies at his peak but in interview he dont really looks mutch over 181 even back then and in his latest interviews he looked more in the 179 range. but i still think he can be 180
Mary said on 9/Jan/17
Definitely not six feet. I stood next to him, I'm a 5'11" woman, he was only a smudge talker than me in men's dress shoes, I was in flats. He has shrunk in his older age.
mister_lennon said on 2/Jan/17
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.
berta said on 31/Dec/16
woooooow people only gues him at 180 cm peak. i think that is too low for him. lowest i would argue is 181 and talles 182,5
berta said on 7/Dec/16
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 Bruce Willis in NYC about ten years ago, I'm 5 foot 2 inches and was about 3 inches taller than him,he's a real nice guy!)

Perfect example of the rubbish people claim on this site 😂
MJKoP said on 17/Nov/16

He was most likely only barefoot in the shots where you could actually see his bare feet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/16
Rob, would you say it's fair that Die Hard isn't a great movie to gauge Willis's height since he was barefoot throughout most of it?

Alexandra Stevens said on 20/Oct/16
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.

The man on the right is a french humorist and he is 1M76. I saw him and took a photo with him and this height is true.

Less than 5'11

I don't think willis was as tall as people think he is. 5'11 peak and 5'10.5 nowadays. He just doesn't look taller than my dad (5'10.5) which i have watch enough much of his film

Saw him working at the italian vodafone spot. I am 176 and he had not less than 5-6cm advantage on me
Tom said on 2/Sep/16
Looked about 5'11.5 on fifth element
popcorn blizzard said on 15/Aug/16
Yeah I'd say 182cm, 190lbs in his prime.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft for an 80's-90's Willis?
Editor Rob
he could pass for it, although remember mamun met him in 90's and he didn't look a big six footer with him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/16
5ft11 flat peak is too low.
