If you need a lift, watch Christopher Walken in the Fat Boy Slim video β€˜Weaspon of Choice’. His dancing is brilliant AND HE CAN FLY!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Apr/23
One thing that mystifies me about Christopher’s gold watch story from Pulp Fiction is wouldn’t the watch have fallen out when he and his grandfather went to the toilet?

Sandy Cowell said on 6/Apr/23
What happened to Christopher’s Nick in The Deer Hunter was so cruel and unnecessary. Why do such horrors as Russian Roulette even get β€˜played’?

The boys are so happy and optimistic at the start of the film….

Surely a movie which reflects the true atrocities of war.

I want to see Chris’s Gold Watch Story so I’m watching Pulp Fiction. So funny…… 🀣🀣🀣

There’s nothing quite like kicking the day off than with Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice, with Christopher Walken doing the choreography.

Three days to go until Christopher turns 80. He gets his guesses then!

A young Walken near Christopher Lloyd looks taller than six foot, although Walken looks taller with an angle advantage, Lloyd doesn’t look as tall as his peak listing there.

I'm not seeing the 6'0.5 peak some here are saying. He could have been 6'0.25 peak though.
Jolapizza said on 26/Nov/21
I am pretty sure that he was slightly overthe 6' mark when younger
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Nov/21
✳️ Has anyone noticed that a certain advert has ripped off the dancing ideas of Christopher Walken when he performed to Fatboy Slim's 'Weapon of Choice' video? I'd call that a freakin' great cheek! Check it out, folks - you'll love it.

Nobody can dance like Christopher Walken. He's one of a kind!


6ft0.5 peak; 5ft11.5 today. πŸ˜†πŸ‘Œ
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Jul/21
Come to think of it, Christopher Walken looked over 6ft in 'The Prophecy' film franchise. I'm quite adamant about the first two movies from 1995 and 1998. When I saw him with Brittany Murphy, (Part 2) who stood 5ft2.5-5ft3, and she sat on his knee, I realized just how tall Chris really was! (I hadn't been to Celebheights back then and didn't know his height).

The third one, from 2005, I have only seen the once, so I can't report back with any certainty, but in the first two, I'd say he was a strong 6ft and half-an-inch.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/21
Chris looked over six foot in 'The Sentinel', a mid-Seventies film in which the actor was in his early thirties.

I'm agreeing with the average of 6ft and half-an-inch and this massively likeable actor will have an inch deducted for today's height. Anyone who can dance with such agility as Christopher did to Fatboy Slim's 'Weapon of Choice' at the age of 58 can't have lost much height some 20 years on - unless he'd had a horrible accident, and that would be news to me if he had. 😍
Richie said on 23/Jun/21
I would have pegged Walken at 6'1" but admittedly he was just 6'. He certainly had a good three inches on DeNiro in The Deer Hunter, maybe it was his hair & slim build giving you the impression he was taller.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Apr/21
πŸŽ‚πŸŽπŸŽˆ Belated Happy Birthday to the great Christopher Walken, who turned 78 on the 31st March. I hope he had a lovely day and enjoys a fruitful and healthy year ahead. πŸŽˆπŸŽπŸŽ‚

i think he was same height as nick nolte at peak. maybe 1/4 over 6 feet. and today struggle to look 180 cm maybe 179.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Feb/21
In order to cheer myself up this evening, I watched Christopher Walken dance in Fatboy Slim's video 'Weapon of Choice'. He was 58 years old when he made that video!

⭐ Walken trained as a theatrical dancer before his acting career kicked off.

6ft0.5 peak; 5ft11.75 now.

184 peak, 181 current
OriginalAnon said on 26/Nov/20
183cm minimum at his peak. I would lean toward 184cm.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Nov/20
I've counted a definite 14 films of Christopher's in my collection but the correct figure is likely to be much higher.

⭐ I found a funny squirt of information when I went through Chris's films. He starred in a version of 'Puss In Boots', from 1988, and his character is called, simply, 'Puss'! 😸

Well, it figures!

⭐ How about this as an amusing little film title? 'The Affair of the Necklace' is another on his film credits!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Nov/20
When I eventually woke up this evening, I was absolutely beaming to see that the brilliant Stephen King film 'The Dead Zone' was on. I'd missed the first half-hour, but I know the film pretty well, having first seen it at the cinema - twice, and numerous times since.

From a height perspective, I'd never really digested how tall Christopher is and tonight it occured to me why. The guy has such a beautiful, warm smile and big, expressive blue eyes that I'd have been too distracted to even bother looking! It wasn't to I saw him in comparison to Brittany Murphy in 'Prophecy II' that I took in his tall height.

He is such a fantastic actor and one day, I'll have a count up of how many of his films I own. I don't know off hand, but if Christopher Walken is in something, I know it's worth buying, and buy it I do! πŸ€—

Peak - 6ft0.5
Today - 5ft11.75
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Oct/20
That film I talked about in my comment from the 8th of this month is 'Seven Psychopaths'.

I watched Christopher's dancing video yesterday, the day before, the day before that.....

It's becoming an integral part of kick-starting my day in an oh-so-cheerful manner! πŸ˜‚πŸ‘

6ft1 peak and 5ft11.75 now. XX 😘
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Oct/20
Even in a film made as late as 2012, when Christopher was 69, he still looks six foot tall. In a line-up which includes the three other main stars (Colin Farrell, written up as 5ft10, Woody Harrelson, 5ft9.5 and Sam Rockwell, 5ft8), Chris looks BY FAR the tallest. He stands bang in the middle, with perhaps two others either side of him, and he simply HAS to be 6ft+.

I'm in agreement with FrankR1's comment from the 23rd September last, that this actor was in excess of 6ft in his youth. We can see how fit he was well into his fifties by watching him dance in Fatboy Slim's video for 'Weapon of Choice'. I'm sure this shows that his impressive level of fitness has helped prevent him from suffering 'normal' shrinkage rates.

5ft11.75 now and 6ft1 peak. πŸ˜πŸ‘
FrankR1 said on 23/Sep/20
Christopher Walken looks 6'2" on screen, so I imagine that he might have been a bit over 6 feet (peak).
Sinclair said on 28/Aug/20
I’d put Walken’s peak height at 6’0.5”. Walken and Roger Moore were indeed similar in height in A View To a Kill. Walken even looked similar in height to Sean Connery at the time of The Anderson Tapes.
Richie said on 18/Jun/20
He was identical in height to Roger Moore in View To A Kill, based on that 6'1" or strong 6'.
Mark Allan said on 2/Jun/20
Rob, what height do you think he was in Wedding Crashers?
Editor Rob
I think he'd lost at least half inch then
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/May/20
3cm lost is convinving. Walken doesn't look much taller than weak 5'10 Colin Farrell.
Tall Sam said on 30/Apr/20
Yeah, Walken looks a surprisingly solid height near Brendan Fraser, he could pass for six feet and change.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 29/Apr/20
I think 6ft 0.25 is a good assumption for Walken. Here are some of his other photos next to Dyan Cannon and Telly Savalas from 1979: Click Here Click Here Click Here
I found pictures of Walken next to Tim Burton from 1992, Walken looked more than one inch taller than Burton: Click Here Click Here
Their footwear: Click Here Click Here
In 2000, Walken met Christina Aguiler: Click Here
Here are her heels and his shoes: Click Here Click Here
Aguilera was 19 years old at that time so she probably reached her full height by then. And here are his photos next to Sally Kirkland and Alicia Silverstone from 1997: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Their footwear: Click Here Click Here Click Here
In 1999, Walken met Alicia again, but he also met Sissy Spacek and Brendan Fraser: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
The first picture clearly shows Walken shoes, but if we look more closely at Fraser shoes, it turns out that Fraser may have had a little more footwear than Walken: Click Here
Considering their footwear I can believe in 6ft 2.5 for Fraser and 6ft 0.25 for Walken. Rob, I think 1/4 inch over 6 feet would be a fair list for Walken's peak height.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Apr/20
Had anybody listened to Fatboy Slim's song "Weapon of Choice", with Christopher Walken dancing? It's absolutely hilarious, and shows how fit the actor was still in his fifties. He'd had no dancing lessons and volunteered to take part in the video my boyfriend tells me.

Consequently, I think the fact of how lithe he was then will have delayed his shrinkage rate.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Apr/20
I watched "Pulp Fiction" twice yesterday and once today, turning Christopher's tale of the Gold Watch seven times! My television wasn't very fond of all the turning back, and now I think I might be in need of a new copy of the film!

I like his facial expressions as he explains to young Butch how his Grandfather had to conceal the watch! Oh, and the way he says aaaarse - so funny!

6ft. and half an inch. πŸ˜πŸ‘ XXXX

Today 5ft11.5 πŸ˜πŸ‘

Mon said on 12/Feb/20
Peak would be in his debut in the Anderson Tapes, where Walken seems to be 6'2'' next to Connery. Christopher was a strapping young man, and I think he has lost an awful lot since 1971.

Tall Sam said on 5/Dec/19
At peak, Walken and Denzel Washington would be pretty close to even, maybe Denzel could take it barely with ramrod straight posture. I thought back in The King of New York, Walken may have had a margin of edge on Laurence Fishburne.
KL7 said on 3/Dec/19
Click Here Rob, he’s edging out Denzel at 60, I think an upgrade for his peak is more than arguable.
Editor Rob
in the film from that time Denzel didn't seem shorter, in fact Walken to me seemed a bit shy of 6ft then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Nov/19
Wow weak 5f11 now...still think a fraction over 6ft in his prime is

Just look at the average guess!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Aug/19
I am absolutely chuffed to be able to say that 'The Eternal' is the one Christopher Walken film that I have been after for a couple of decades. It was particularly difficult to track down because I didn't have a clue as to what it was called! πŸ˜•
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 31/Jul/19
I have just ordered a Christopher Walken film called 'The Eternal'. That man simply DOESN'T disappoint! I'm also excited about a film that's on tonight called 'Communion', which is a science fiction movie on the Horror Channel at 9 o'clock. Hailing from 1989, it'll show Chris at his peak height. πŸ˜πŸ‘

He is one of my favourite actors of all time.

Peak - 6ft0.5;
Now - 5ft11.
179cm guy said on 9/May/19
@Rob whether or not Christopher was six feet or a fraction over it at his peak is not the main issue here. There's no way that he's still 5'11.5 Rob, you said yourself recently and I quote "Today he can barely look 5ft 11, he might be at 5ft 10.5 range." Rob will you give Walken 5'11 for his current height I think that it's safe to say that he's not over that mark at this point.
Editor Rob
he's a weak 5ft 11 today from what I've seen lately.
179cm guy said on 15/Apr/19
Rob, 50 votes now have Walken's peak height placed comfortably above the six-foot mark. Will you give him the quarter inch upgrade for his peak height now? I personally think that after turning seventy-six this year 6'0.25 peak and 5'10.75 for his current listing would suit him just fine.
Editor Rob
I've not seen enough to say for sure if he was over six foot.
berta said on 15/Feb/19
I think 1/4 over this is better listing. He looked that nick Nolte size
Gracian said on 20/Nov/18

In 2001, when Walken did not keep a bad posture, he really looked taller than Norman Cook:

I have previously sent several pictures of Walken alongside Kevin Pollak and Quentin Tarantino from 2004. Rob, you said that Tarantino has a chance at 6'1.25" and in these pictures Walken and Pollak have a small footwear advantage over him, Tarantino next to Kevin Pollak really looks like 186 cm, but Walken with a slight advantage of shoes looked taller than Tarantino so the difference between them could not be big, here's one of their joint photo from 2004:
Click Here
Here are the pictures of Walken next to Susan Sarandon from 2004:
Click Here
Click Here
Rob, Susan was 58 years old in 2004, in one of the comments you said that she could lose a fraction in 55-60, but Walken then looked over 6 inches taller from her.
Walken in 1995 in the movie "Nick of Time" looked easily over 3 inches taller than Johnny Depp:
Click Here
Walken in this photo from 1997 really looks taller than David Duchovny:
Click Here
From what I saw, Walken really lost nothing to the age of 60, he looked a little shortet when he was 65-70 years old. I think the peak height 6'0.25" looks right for Walken. Rob, can you give him a quarter inch upgrade now?
Editor Rob
I am not sure whether I'd give him a 1/4. I haven't ruled it out of course, either 6ft or 6ft 1/4 seems believable to me.
berta said on 15/Nov/18
i believe a guy like Walken and NIck NOlte was both almost 184 guys that didnt cared about the fraction.6 foot 1/4
Sonnecker said on 26/Oct/18
Strong 6 footer....although a bad posture in younger age.
Gracian said on 18/Sep/18
Rob, I think a quarter-inch over 6 feet looks more reasonable for Walken. Here is a photo of Walken next to David Duchovny from 1997, Walken looks taller than Duchovny:
Click Here
Perhaps the downgrade of the 1/8 of an inch you gave recently Duchovny was good, but Walken looked taller than him. Here is a picture of Walken next to Norman Cook from 2001, Walken looks taller than Cook:
Click Here
I think that when Walken was over 50 years old, he could sometimes hold a little worse posture, but it seems to me that he probably did not lose anything to 60 years old, until he was 65-70, he could have lost some height. I think if we measured Walken when he was 15-25 years younger he would still stretch a little over 6 feet. Rob, I think 6'0.25" would be better for him.
Gracian said on 18/Aug/18
Rob, I still think 6'0.25" would be more right for him. Please Rob, look at him next to Kevin Nealon in 1990: Click Here
The difference between them does not look as big as a full 4 inches, it's a bit too much...

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jul/18
Walken is possibe to be 6'0 1/8 peak and 5'11 5/8 now. Def taller than peak Tom Hanks who look more like 5'11 7/8 peak.
Gracian said on 6/Jun/18
Rob, once again, I would like to ask you to upgrade the peak height of Walken by a quarter of an inch. I believe that young Walken was taller than young Hanks and young Malkovich. I found a photo of Walken from 2004 with Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Pollak, Walken when he had a somewhat thicker shoes looked taller than Tarantino and Pollak looked very short next to Walken.

Sandy Cowell said on 29/May/18
Chris was also in 'The Sentinel'! So much brilliant stuff made by this one actor AND he related 'The Gold Watch Story' in 'Pulp Fiction', which never fails to have me in stitches!

Christopher gets a top-class 6ft and some kisses, of course! XXXXXXX πŸ‘πŸ˜‰

Oh yes, and he can have 6ft0.5 for his peak!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/May/18
75 only lost half an inch is consider lucky. Some have lost nearly 2" at this point of age.
Gracian said on 30/Apr/18
Rob, that peak height Walken was 6'0.25" can really be argued. Maybe he was not someone like Chris Pine who does not care about half an inch or even 3/4 inch, but he could not care about a fraction of over 6 feet. I think peak height Walken beat the peak height Tom Hanks and peak height John Malkovich, I saw many Walken movies and many photos, I think he stayed well until the mid-60s, and he only started to lose height 10 years ago. Walken really did not look much shorter alongside people like Sean Connery, Rupert Everett, Dwayne Johnson, and in the pictures with Jon Voight in 2002, he still looked strong six feet , Christopher Walken looked very much like Roger Moore, and very much like Bradley Cooper. In 2002 year he still looked taller than Leonardo DiCaprio, and Sean Penn in the 80's looked very short of him. Rob, please look at these photos: Click Here

It's true that Walken stayed well until the mid 60s, but today it looks much lower than it used to be. Rob, will you give him upgrade peak height to 6'0.25" and downgrade current height to 5'11.25"?
Editor Rob
A little over 6ft peak is always an arguable figure for Walken, like Nick Nolte. Today he can sometimes look at most 5ft 11.
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Mar/18
I really do believe Christopher Walken's peak was 6ft, and that he is still tall and fit now. He appeared in a dance video not that long ago and was crazily good!

But there's something truly amazing and magical about this actor, the sort of something, that 'Quark, Strangeness and Charm' I wrote about on Al Pacino's page over a year ago! It's the something you can't quite put your finger on, but the more you see him, the more of it simply oozes out of his very being, out of every single delightful pore!

Today, on this snowy, Winter's evening in March, Chris gets 6ft0.5 peak, and 5ft11.5 for his today's height.
jtm said on 15/Mar/18
a lot of people thought woody harrelson was 5'11 10 years ago.

the tallest walken ever claiimed was 6'0 and this is against the consensus but i think keaton has always been 5'8 range.
Gracian said on 12/Mar/18
Walken with The Rock: Click Here
Rob, most people agree that Walken, when he was younger, looked a bit over 6 feet, please give him a peak height with a strong range of 6 feet (6'0.25").
Jamie said on 6/Mar/18
Rob, I agree with Adijos 6’0.25 peak seems to in order. In 1992 film Batman Returns he toward 5’9” Michael Keaton and he didn’t look too much shorter than 6’5” Andrew Bryniarski.

He made an appearance at 90th Academy Awards and looked his lost some height.
Adijos said on 22/Nov/17
Rob, I think you should give Walken a 6'0.25" peak. In "A View to a Kil", I can not see even one inch difference between him and Roger Moore! and so I deserve a quarter more! In "The Comfort of Strangers" I do not see the full four inches difference between him and Rupert Everett, which is another good argument! In "Wedding Crashers" looks very similar to Bradley Cooper, another argument. You once admitted that a little over 6 feet is not impossible for him, and that his peak might have been higher than Tom Hanks' peak. Once again please Rob, here you would give Walken the peak 6'0.25".

Sorry @rampageclover, but in "pulp fiction" and "true romance" he looked nothing above 6'. I'd be very shocked if he was actually 6'0.25"-6'0.5" in his youth.
DaMovieWhiz said on 7/Oct/17
How likely is 5'10.5 for Walken in the next few years?
Editor Rob
where is MJKOP, I remember seeing a video he once did of short impressions and I think he could pull off a Walken impression or even do a 'height impression video' of all their claims or something.

But yeah, I think Walken has obviously lost height from the 70's and 80's. He can seem 5ft 10.5-11 range at times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Oct/17
183.5cm minimum peak
Slim said on 4/Sep/17
It's most likely he's 5'11.5" today, still a great height for an old man.
Adijos said on 29/Aug/17
Many commentators agree that Walken is a little over 6 feet. Some even argue why. I think 6'0ΒΌ" would be the most suitable and most likely for him.
Spencer said on 8/Aug/17
6'1 ish peak. In True Romance he still looked 184 and he was late 40's in that movie. In Catch Me if You can he had about an inch on 181 Leo. 182-83 cm today.

I love this charismatic actor and I am pleased to see he's 6ft tall! Colin Farrell said of him when he'd worked with him on 'Seven Psychopaths' that he'd never met anyone like him in all his life! Now that I CAN believe! And can he dance......
Rory said on 29/Sep/16
6'0.25 peak and today 5'11.25.
Josh Jeffords said on 31/Aug/16
He's a clear 6 ft if you watch he almost always slouched and was still taller than most.
Likely never much more than 6 to 6 1 but some wild hair could have reached 6 4 easy.

Looked similar in height to Sean Connery in Anderson Tapes. Must have been at least 6ft when younger.
Leung said on 16/May/16
Looking closer to 5'11" these days. But would have been around 6'0.5" during his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/16
Rob, could he be heading toward 5ft11 now?
Editor Rob
he's hitting an age where he is beginning to look nearer that mark.
Sam said on 4/Nov/15
An honest guy bet he was a strong six foot at peak, hardly dipping below the mark by evening.
Che said on 28/Oct/15
A legit 6 footer his hair would put him at 6'0.5" mark in his 30s. Now about 5'11".

I stand corrected here; always thought he was super tall (about 6'5"). Superb actor and fantastic person. In the Dead Zone he was beyond comparison.
Maor said on 30/Jun/15
Wow, i was expecting 5'11 (180cm)
richie said on 5/May/15
Mmmm..i always thought he appeared in the 6'1" range, certainly had a good 3 inches on DeNiro in Deerhunter and was almost the same height as Roger Moore in View to a Kill, certainly a strong 6'
Judd said on 12/Feb/15
Judd says on 19/Dec/14
Rob he could be 5'11 or 5'11.25 today?
[Editor Rob: he certainly can look sub 6ft]

I think until 2005 he was in the 6' wedding crash he wasn't much far from Bradley Cooper, but in 2002 he was very close to LDiCaprio (5'11.25")...Today i think he's max 5'11.5".

no doubt regarding he was 6'0" but today he actually looks a bit shorter than 5'11.5", like a strong 5'11".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/14
He towered over DeNiro in The Deer Hunter and wasn't much shorter than Connery in The Anderson Tapes. A strong 6ft/weak 6ft1 range peak.

over 6-0 peak for sure. 6"0-5" more like

A bit taller than Laurence Fishburne.

Also here with Kris Kristofferson and Jeff Bridges (dropping a bit in the foreground).

I could see more 6'0.5" at peak for Walken.

Strong six footer in his prime.Looked it in Bulloxi Blues.

I'd say a 6'0.25-6'0.5 peak for Walken :)
Emil 182.5 cm said on 5/Aug/14
Dont you think 184-185 cm could be a POSSIBLE peak?
Editor Rob
a little bit over 6ft is possible, but I would think he is an honest enough guy saying 6ft.

Arch Stanton said on 16/Jul/14
Rob can you add a photo and add A View to a Kill, Pulp Fiction, The Funeral, King of New York. Catch Me If You Can, The Dead Zone, Wedding Crashers and Seven Psychopaths?

Looks roughly 2 inches shorter than Benicio Del Torro in The Funeral.
Roger said on 6/Jul/14
Walken towered over Batman Michael Keaton in Batman Returns. Keaton is known to be 5-9 peak. My guess he was 6-1 or maybe 6 feet even.
Guy said on 9/Jun/14
He looked very close to sandler in Click, i would say he is between 180 and 182
HULK said on 11/Feb/14
same height as Bradley Cooper
Height expert said on 20/Jan/14
I think I read some where that Chris walken suffers from some spinal disease or something that's why his posture is terrible. Do correct me though as I'm not certain.

One does not simply Walken to Morodor.

Didn't look under 6 ft peak. Looks tall in the Deer Hunter, 3 inches easily on De Niro.
Willy said on 29/Apr/13
Looked an inch shorter than Roger Moore in A View To A Kill. Moore at that time certainly wasn't over 6'0.75'', so 5'11.75'' seems natural for Walken. 6' flat when waking up at peak, but never over it. Well, 6'1'' with the hair.

thebad7 said on 11/Oct/11
Just watched him opposite Sean Connery in 1971's THE ANDERSON TAPES. He is tall now as an older man, and he was tall as a young man. He was 28 when he did TAPES, and standing next to strong 6'2" Connery, Walken looked to be a inch & change shorter. I can buy 6'1" for him as a young man. Today, he still looks close to the mark--maybe more six flat than 6'1", but he's still fairly tall.

Likewise, in 1997's EXCESS BAGGAGE and in 1996's THE FUNERAL next to legit 6'2" co-star Benicio Del Toro, Walken looked 1" - 1 1/2" shorter than Del Toro. Love to watch Walken--he makes good films great, and he makes otherwise dull affairs enjoyable experiences.

jake, 1.82 m said on 21/Sep/11
Peak Height: 6ft0.25in (184 cm)
Height: 5ft11.5in (182 cm)

Could look 6ft1 when he was young due to build/hair.
Spence said on 13/Aug/11
Rob you need to change his peak height to 184. There is just too much evidence he was between 6 and 6'1 at peak. He looks almost 4 inches taller than De Niro in Deer Hunter. He has lost about 3/4 of an inch of height.

Big MIke said on 22/Feb/11
Yea I thought 6ft when he was in THe Deer Hunter he was the second tallest guy besides Axel who I think is about 6ft2 but Chris was always thin really thin in The Deer Hunter in Balls of Furry too in Click though he only looked an inch taller than 5 ft 10 Sandler I would say 5 ft 11
James said on 21/Feb/11
I am sorry but next to Roger Moore was no more than 187cm at his peak Walken did not look a hair over 6'.

Also View to a kill was made in 1985 so by then Roger Moore could have been a fraction shorter than his peak of 187cm.
Spence said on 30/Jan/11
No 184 possibly 185 on a good day at peak..we know he was at least 183 at peak
somebody new said on 20/Jan/11
183-4 on a good day. We cant argue for 1 cm... It's clear he's in the 6ft. range

In True Romance he looks 184 still too maybe 6'0.25 to 6'0.5...I think he was slightly above 6 at peak how much I'm not sure
somebody new said on 19/Dec/10
the man is 66 years old now. Maybe in his prime average could've been slightly shorter than now?
James said on 16/Dec/10
Yeah Spence I was going to say he could pull of looking 6'1 in the Deer Hunter but that is just because he was skinny. Legit 6' at peak.
Spence said on 13/Dec/10
I think he was 184 at peak and 182 now...185 is a stretch cause he was so thin
somebody new said on 12/Dec/10
he could've measured 5'11,75 to 6'0.25'' if he claims 6 feet.
James said on 5/Dec/10
In Deer Hunter no taller than 6ft most likely.
somebody new said on 5/Dec/10
what was he listed here before the claim was found ?

Editor Rob
he was 6ft 0.5, then 0.25 and finally 6ft
somebody new said on 5/Dec/10
the best scene to compare them was at the end of the movie where DeNiro was pushing Walken to the wall. Ofcourse he'll look taller..
Spence said on 4/Dec/10
He looks 6'1 In Deer Hunter thats why he's so much bigger than De Niro who was 5'9
James said on 2/Dec/10
Spence says on 26/Nov/10
Anything under 184 cm peak is wrong

Possibly 184cm in his 20's. though in the 1980's clearly with Roger Moore he was not over 183cm.
Spence said on 26/Nov/10
Anything under 184 cm peak is wrong

At his peak I doubt even at the dead of night that he would have measured under 6'0.

Anonymous said on 19/Nov/10
maybe his lowest at the evening could be a bit less than 6ft. I mean usualy people dont know they're taller at the morning and they just measure at some point of the day.
James said on 18/Nov/10
if moore is not over 6'1 than that would have made walken 5'11.5?
somebody new said on 17/Nov/10
I've read somewhere bout james bond actors. the site said Moore claimed 6'1'' and that his wax figure is 6'1'' without shoes...
James said on 15/Nov/10
today could be 5'11 flat.

The most he could have been was possibly 6ft.25 (184cm) in his 20's maybe on a good day? But I still think 183cm is closer for his peak.

In View to a kill was only in his early 40's and was clearly 1.5 under Roger Moore so unless he sustained some bad inury he was 185 or even 184cm at his peak and he looked more than just 2cm under Moore.

the guy is 67 so i doubt he would have lost 2 inches from his peak. more like 2-3cm.
somebody new said on 11/Nov/10
yeah looked at least an inch or more shorter than Moore, who himself claimed 6'2'' morning height. That would make him 6'1'' evening. Walken was 6ft (give or take a tad)at his peak and now looks 5'11ish.
Danimal said on 11/Nov/10
Definitely 6'1" in his younger days... Today at strong 5'11"..
Spence said on 10/Nov/10
Roger Moore was almost 6'2 at peak...In Deer Hunter Walken looks 184-85 easily
James said on 6/Nov/10
he was not 6'1 at his peak. In my opnion no more than 6'0 (183cm) look at him in comparison to 6'1.5 Roger Moore in View to a Kill.

Today 5'11 (180-181cm)
Peak 6'0 (183cm)
Danimal said on 16/May/09
He was MUCH taller taller in the 70's and 80's. The man is close to 70 years old. He's lost height.
glenn said on 16/May/09
outside a museum i think.i dont have time to study the ground.once in a blue i do look.but yes,the pavement here is ridiculous with slopes and small hills,drops.
James said on 15/May/09
Just looked at your post again glenn. Yeah you have to consider the ground you were standing on in the pic?
James said on 15/May/09
Rob any chance of giving him a downgrade to 5'11 or 5'11.5? The more I look at this pic if you compare the levels between thier hairlines he looks quite a bit under 6ft considering he was wearing dress shoes and had footware advantage over glenn.

If you photoshoped this pic and removed Christophers hair I think there would look 3.5 inches between them. If Christopher was wearing the same type of footware as glenn there would probably look barely 3 inches between them. I don't even think glenn is standing at his absolute straightest in this pic either compared to Walken who is standing very straight. But at the of the day its only a picture.

Editor Rob
if it's outside a hotel lobby and on the street there's more problems with knowing if the ground is actually level or advantageous to either person.
glenn said on 15/May/09
he had dress shoes.the ground im not sure of.taken in a hurry.that could be the cause of problem.however,he did look 5-11 tops to me.
James said on 14/May/09
Yeah glenn did he have footware advantage was the ground even? With his hairsyle in this pic he would only reach like 181-182cm. I think his peak height was probably 183cm though. You could argue though glenn that your slightly closer to the camera.
glenn said on 14/May/09
good point james.and im wearing flat adidas here.he did look 6-1 to me in 1990.
James said on 13/May/09
glenns pictures if you shaved Christophers hair of he would look 5'10.75 if even that in comparison.
RisingForce said on 16/Apr/09
Yeah exactly, that's not a 6-0 man in The Deer Hunter and I doubt Walken would wear lifts for that movie.
bam said on 13/Apr/09
i'm glad someone sees what I've been saying. He was huge in the deer hunter. 6'0.5 min, probably 6'1. although its not smart to upgrade based off one movie, I guarantee you its obvious. If rob were to watch the deer hunter, he would upgrade walken immediately.
RisingForce said on 6/Apr/09
He towered over De Niro in The Deer Hunter by a solid 4 inches, and De Niro was no less than 5'9" back then. Christopher Walken must have been 6'1" peak.

He looked slightly taller than than Larry Fishburne in King of New York.

Dennis said on 10/Feb/09
Lived in my old neighborhood, Astoria Queens. Mom owned a bakery and brother had a photo store. Chris was a solid 6' in his youth.

Walken also looked barely shorter than 6-1.5/6-2 Roger Moore in A View To Kill.
T.J. said on 4/Feb/09
He may have been 6'1" risingforce, but he looks more 5'11"/5'11.5" now. He's old, and when you get old, sometimes you shrink a couple of inches. But he was tall once. I also think his hair makes him look taller than he actually is
TELLEM said on 4/Feb/09
walken wasn't 6'1. next to 5'7 matthew broderick who were BOTH in SOCKS showed walken at 6'0 and no more. and this was in the 80s.

Hugh said on 2/Feb/09
6ft flat nowadays and possibly close to the 6ft1 mark out of bed. In his prime he may very well have stood 6ft1.

looks more 5'11 nowadays. In click, he barely looked an inch taller than 5'10 adam sandler
TELLEM said on 19/Jan/09
i think he was only 6'0 feet peak. he was raked thin. a raked thin 6'0 man can look really tall, especially on screen
adam said on 19/Jan/09
Lenad, you are correct. In the film he was rake thin and looked tall. Over six feet, yes. I`d say it is possible that Walken could have been around 6-1 peak.
Lenad said on 19/Jan/09
Could have sworn I saw at least 6ft1 in Deer Hunter!
deryck said on 5/Jan/09
In Click (2006) looked max 5-6 cm above Sandler, who is 177 or 178, so 183 could be
TELLEM said on 31/Dec/08
watched it again...5 inches max between the two...6'0 peak for walken but no more
TELLEM said on 29/Dec/08
was watching "biloxi blues" last night...there was one scene with 5'7 matthew broderick and christopher walken...they were both barefoot next to each other...and i was surprised walken only had broderick by 4 INCHES MAX...maybe a tad bit less....i couldn't believe it...which comes to mind that walken may have only been 6'0 peak but most likely tad less peak.
Hugh said on 26/Dec/08
I'd say he's 6ft if he straightens up next to Glenn. Closer to 6ft1 in his prime. He could look 6ft2 at times!
Jordan said on 25/Dec/08

u guys always get these wrong. yes, christopher walken is 6'0, but because of his posture, he looks around 5'10, but u guys put meat loaf height as 5'10 when he's slouching, when he straightens up, he's 6'0.
Buck Naked said on 20/Oct/08
I think Walken is about 5'10.

I stepped in to the elevator at the Chateau Marmont a few years ago.

As is my nature, if I get in an elevator and its just me and another other person in there, I say hello.

That's what I did when I stepped in to the small elevator at the CM.

Anyway, as I walk in and say hello and turn and hit the first floor button (which was already lit.,) I simultaneously get this waft of bodacious body odor and realize that the guy in the elevator is Walken (who was looking really, really bad physically).

He says nothing and hits the lit first floor button and I don't say a thing because I figure the guy is an asshat if he can't give some body a fricking hello and I just ignore him.

The elevator goes down a floor and a hotel employee gets in the elevator. He says hello, I say hello back, and he hits the lit 1st floor button and Walken says nothing, living what might have been a Leaving Las Vegas moment because he hits the 1st floor button that he originally lit and has hit three times that I whitnessed.

Presumably, he must of thought repeatedly hitting it would get him out of such a close proximity of us little people.

He stuck me as a very small 5'10" man.

True story.

Hugh, I agree with you. Hugh seems to be pretty much dead on with his estimates. I pretty much agree most of them. Viper is on the other side who probably thinks that Walken is in the 5-9 -range because some basketball player looked taller.

Walken looks pretty tall in all of his movies. In Batman Returns he is clearly taller than Keaton and in the Deer Hunter towered over De Niro. Deer Hunter is by the way (along with Godfather and One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest) one of the most over-rated films of all time! In my opinion, of course.

Yeah, Glenn that is possible. I saw Chris at 6ft1/6ft2 years ago. 1987 I think it was.

He has looked 6'1 to me before, in Envy and Click he does look 6'0 on the dot. I would say anywhere between 181 and 184 cm is correct

Heisenberg was driving down the Autobahn and got pulled over. The cop walked up to the side of his his car and asked, "Son, do you know how fast you were going back there?"

To which he replies, "No, but I know where I am."
