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 6'0¼" 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.
Slim 181 cm said on 12/Jul/17
6'0 peak, 5'11.25 today.

I was just watching Wedding crashers and he looked flat 6 feet, now could be a fraction below.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jun/17
I think Moore was a bit taller than Walken in A View To A Kill, like 2cm. But if Walken was 184cm then Moore was still 186cm range

I have just interrupted my watching of Christopher Walken's first major movie role, from 1972, called 'The Mind Snatchers'.
What better way than that to suss out his optimum height? He looks his full 6ft in this to be sure! A short female helper in the institution he has found himself in, looks truly like a midget next to him! He's almost as tall sitting down! The other characters in this are ones I haven't heard of, but Chris holds up well next to them, a fine figure of a young man, with his hair at its 'Deer Hunter' fairest! I reckon his colouring might indeed have helped our friend get his teeth into this part, because judging from the names that were mentioned, particularly at the beginning, this film just might be based in Germany, or at least somewhere in Western Europe, but that might be rubbish because Christopher has been posted here as he is a young Private in the army - but one with a temper, who doesn't mince his words, which can be rather comical at times!
My conclusion from this very early film of his is that he could even have been approaching 6ft1 at his peak.
Sandy Cowell said on 3/May/17
@ Terry - Hello! I like him too! 👍😉
Terry said on 2/May/17
I thought he were taller! I like him, especially in the Deer Hunter.
Richardspain said on 29/Apr/17
He looks 182cm nowadays.

Young 183 or 184cm
Spencer said on 28/Apr/17
Weak 6'1 peak
berta said on 27/Apr/17
he only looked little over 1 inch shorter than connery. i tihnk he could have been close to 184 at peak. minimum 183 and max 184.probably inbeetween those two. but maybe his hair can foll us to look 1 cm taller. but still a very legit 6 footer
Csimpson 6ft said on 17/Feb/17
Rob so do you think Roger was only 6ft in a View to a kill? He was 57 back then
Editor Rob: by mid 80's he could have lost some height.
Csimpson 6ft said on 15/Feb/17
Rob do you think Roger Moore looked taller than Christopher in A View to a kill?
Editor Rob: Connor, they probably looked very similar.
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Oct/16
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.

movieguy said on 23/May/16
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.
Danimal said on 14/Oct/14
Was close to 6'1" at his peak. Has noticeably lost height.
kyuss said on 13/Oct/14
over 6-0 peak for sure. 6"0-5" more like
Sam said on 18/Sep/14
At peak, I don't see an inch, even half an inch, between Walken and Roger Moore.
Click Here
A bit taller than Laurence Fishburne.
Click Here
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.
Sean73 said on 4/Sep/14
Strong six footer in his prime.Looked it in Bulloxi Blues.
Emil 182.5 cm said on 18/Aug/14
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.]
jtm said on 18/Jul/14
he was at least 1.5 shorter than eastwood at the jersey boys premiere. probably no more than 5'11 today.

Nice one. His hairstyle can really make him look at least 6'1" at times. In the above photo it looks 6 inches from his eyes to the top of his hair!
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.

Conti said on 2/Dec/12
I think when he was younger he was 6'1,because he kind of looked taller in batman returns.Unless he was wearing boots or something that made him taller.Normally when a person gets older they lose 2 inches of growth.I would say now he's 5'11.

6 feet and change at this peak. 5'11" today.
bodwaya said on 15/Jun/12
he had 3 inches on 5 foot 10 sandler on click. plus even height with 6 foot DiCaprio in catch me if you can. In ninth gate had 4 inches on 5 foot 9 deep. lastly was only 2 inches shorter then 6 foot 2 morgan freeman in maiden heist. he dosent look like he lost
an inch at his age
Danimal said on 7/Feb/12
6'0.5"-6'1" in his younger days. Today around 5'11" at almost 70 years old.
Silent d said on 5/Feb/12
Solid 180cm. I remember in click he was a little taller than sandler.

I agree with LAN Jiao/Steven, this guy is 5'10" range, 5'11" TOPS.
steven said on 18/Jan/12
he look 1.5" shorter than 5'11.5 josh lucas in Around the Bend. his tall hair is 6'0.
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.

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.

Spence said on 27/Jun/11
184 minimum peak. I think he was just under 6'1 at peak. He is still about 6. He looked taller than Leo in Catch Me if You Can which proves my point that Leo is 5'11
James said on 8/Jun/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 18/Apr/11
James, Roger Moore was close to 60 in A View to a Kill so he may shrunk a bit?

Close to 6"1 in his Wedding Crashers he looked a solid 6"0

In view to a kill i thought christopher for sure looked under 6'0

He's skinny that is why he looks taller that and his hair. Geez no wonder he's had 6'2 sightings at estimates.
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
Spence said on 15/Jan/11
184 in Deer Hunter
James said on 4/Jan/11
like i said with roger moore did not look over 183cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/11
184cm at peak
182-183cm today

Looked 6"1ish in The Deer Hunter
Spence said on 19/Dec/10
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
James said on 21/Nov/10
At his peak I doubt even at the dead of night that he would have measured under 6'0.
Somebody New said on 20/Nov/10

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)
Valeri said on 12/Oct/07
yeah Markus.I'd say a strong 5'11 at least even today.probably 5'11.25.5'10 is out of the question for walken.Shoulder show about 3.5in of difference,but its more 3-3.25 in reality,judging by the top of the head.
Markus said on 3/Oct/07
There's more than 2 inches difference between Glenn and Mr. Walken here, I'm still going with 5-11. Also look at the shoulder height difference.
Coffee Shop said on 2/Oct/07
hey, he could very well be 5'10" cause no one has taken into acount that his hair is always brushed back prob gives him 2" of extra height but not raggin on him though he's a phanomenal actor
dmeyer said on 1/Oct/07
looks about 5'11.25 was about 6 ft 0.5 in so lost

he was definately closer to 6'1 peak. Rob, I would consider giving him a peak height.

I have heard him claim 6'0 1/2".
Franco said on 27/Jun/07
honestly Glenn prolly is wearing some sport shoes looking at his jacket/t-shirt combo, also i think mr. Christopher (excellent actor) got formal shoes surely and looks 6'0ish.

imho bare footed Walken is 5'11.5 and with the shoes in the pic about 6'0.5
Pete said on 26/Jun/07
he looks 5-11 in that pic. very talented actor.
Bad Radio said on 24/Jun/07
met him twice last year...really cool guy...definately 6'0 ft.
schnitzelferk said on 24/Jun/07
[Editor Rob: nearing 65 on for sure he is likely to have lost some noticeable (1/2, 3/4) height.]

My dad was 6'2 1/2" aged 17, i measured him last year and today after reading this, hes 6'2 1/2" aged 57, and is a builder, and works his back loads.

Losing height from age is over rated also.

[Editor Rob: likely, not a certainty of course. Your sample size is 1, and he's 57 and you think height loss is over-rated. Its understandable you'd think that. Research proves otherwise though.]
dmeyer said on 24/Jun/07
looks a lidl less than 6 ft like 181 could have been 6'0.25 1 in is likely at 65
Mario said on 24/Jun/07
Though he was still taller in 2002 than DiCaprio who is in my opinion 182-183 cm.

I still think that he was at least 184cm when he was in his 20s.

oh also, i forgot to mention, sandler slouches too! so the postures should be evened out anyway, and yes, sander is a teensy bit in the foreground, but 3"? come on?!?!

Click Here

even if you make henry here 5'5" hell even 5'4" that makes from walkens mid nose to forehead 7-8" long, if he is indeed 6'0" tall


My fiancee is 5'5" and i can rest my chin on her head moving up a bit, and my head is exactly 8.5", i have to move my chin by 1.5"

His head would have to be 10-11" long in that pic for him to be 6ft

seriously, this guy is NOT 6ft, in this pic he barely comes out 5'10"

I am and have been obsessed with height forever, most standard human heads are 7.5-9" long depending, and you can have a lot of accuracy basing height just with heads, if someone is 6'0" and the guy next to them has literally to the chin line, chances are they have a 9"+ head as theyre taller, so theyre 6'9" min.
if a 5ft guy is exactly 1 head shorter than another, that guy is most likely 5'7-8"

chris is NOT 6'0", how he is even listed at 6'10" amazes me

glenn is coming up to halfway through his forehead in that picture, unless half his damn forehead is 4", then NO he is not 6ft, and slouching does not eliminate 2" unless major
schnitzelferk said on 23/Jun/07

suck it markus

I dont care if hes sloching, i didnt know better about adam sandler back then, adams 5'9" tops personally to me, and even slouching-you cant lose 3".

I even tested this as i am too-exactly 6'0" and even with extreme slouching, i still end up 5'10" and thats REALLY bad slouching, hunched over almost.

People give slouching more credit than its worth, you rarely lose more than 1" from it.

I say chris is 5'10" 5'11" tops.

5'10" guys can look 6ft with enough posture, shoes and hair, unless someones good at estimating height.

when i was 5'11" i had people comment me as being 6'1" and 6'3" even!!

some people REALLY dont know how to estimate height, so when it comes to "this person i know said they was around x'x" it really doesnt count for much, also note how these stories here usually lead to a massive 4" hike or something, not this time, but theyre easily findable.

well,he was 6ft peak.he does look shorter in the pic,the more i realise it.he seemed at least 5-11ish.
Anonymous said on 23/Jun/07
He looks 5'10 to 5'10.5 max in his barefeet(Time for a down grade ..Rob.. to at least 5'11)

this is a joke. there's no way this guy is 6 feet tall. He is maybe 5-11 and I'd say more like 5-10 in this picture. Looks like he's standing up straight, still there's no way that this guy is 4 inches taller than glenn.

He just about has 4 inches on Glenn, 6'0'' tops!

Danimal said on 22/Jun/07
He is one of the coolest guys ever. He doesn't believe in using punctuation when speaking. Dead Zone and Communion were AWESOME. He's claimed to be 6'0.5" in the past.
Anthony said on 22/Jun/07
Looks between 5'11 and 6'. Walken rules.
Markus said on 22/Jun/07

You just got to meet my fav. actor Glenn! What were your thoughts about his height, is 6 feet accurate ?
glenn said on 25/Apr/07
just got last him 17 years ago but lost the pic.he isnt looking in my camera last i need to get him again in the coming weeks.
Markus said on 24/Apr/07
Yeah, thats one of his best features! Plus, his ice cold alien-like stare !

But I'd really like to know if anyone met the guy. I talked with the fanclub president who met Chris, she also thought him to be about 6 feet.
jon said on 8/Apr/07
:D have anyone listened closely to him speaking in most of his movies... he has a pretty freaking pattern and rhytm when he talks, I love it!
Markus said on 28/Mar/07
I say Click last weekend, not a great movie btw...I'm not sure what Schnitzelfreak saw, but Chris definately looked taller than Adam Sandler in my opinion. Not sure by how much though because he has quirky puffy hair. Maybe about 1,5 or 2" difference.
Snakeman said on 17/Mar/07
In Catch me if you fking can him and Leo look the exact same height.
Markus said on 8/Mar/07
The guy's at least 5-11, he just slouches.
schnitzelferk said on 1/Mar/07
well in the film click hes the exact same height as adam sandler, and as sandler is 5'10" no taller, that puts chris at 5'10" too.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 13/Feb/07
nowadays i'd def say 6'0 or even 5'11.5 he still seems the tall skinny dude just sorta slouches now
dmeyer said on 2/Feb/07
in his 20 not far from 6'1 and closer to 182 183 now
Markus said on 14/Dec/06
Has anyone got a picture with Chris, Glenn maybe?
He's my favorite actor...the embodification of coolness!
Spence said on 28/Oct/06
He was 6'1 flat at his peak, watch Deer Hunter hes way taller than Deniro who is almost 5'10
dmeyer said on 25/Oct/06
184-5 at peak 182-3right now
Mario said on 7/Sep/06
Christopher Walken was easy 185cm at his peak.
Rufus said on 7/Sep/06
Moore was allready a grandy when played his last Bond.
Sure Walken is a cm taller than him, but cameras try to not reflect that on film.
Or Moore shrunk or he was never taller than 6', anyway that makes 6+ of Walken.
Markus said on 5/Sep/06
In A view to a Kill I thought Moore actually looked a little bit taller than Walken...hmm I have to take a look at that again
piwo81 said on 25/Aug/06
If he is exactly 6' then Roger Moore was no more then 6'. Walken was about 1 cm taller then Moore.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 13/Jul/06
in wedding crashers chris' chracter and his one daughters boyfriend Zak(who is supposed to be 6'1) they looked nearly the same siding side by side maybe a .5 difference so either chris is 6'1 or that other dude Zak is just 6'0
Harry said on 9/Jul/06
He didn't look much taller than adam sandler in click, in some scenes Chris only looked about 1 inch taller but probably at his age he is starting to slouch abit

"He's one of the best actors in the business."

Hear hear.
Glenn said on 25/Jun/06
When I first met him in 1990 I got the impression he was 6-3!.then 2nd time in 1997,he looked 6ft.
Larry said on 25/Jun/06
Chris stated his own height as 6 foot on The Bravo Channel. Very fine actor IMHO! :-)
Frank2 said on 24/Jun/06
Chris is exactly 6' tall. He's one of the best actors in the business.
Frank said on 24/Jun/06
Sorry, but Michelle Pfeiffer is no more than 5'4, even with heels.
Anthony said on 23/Jun/06
I think when he was younger, he may have been a tad over 6'1. In "Batman Returns", he was a good few centimeters over Michael Keaton. Also, in the scene where Michelle Pfeiffer (about 5'5 but 5'7 in the heels she was wearing) is confronted by his character, he towers over her. Very big and scary guy. He's prorbably about 184 centimeters now, so he's still fairly tall.
Markus said on 21/Mar/06
A really cool actor and the coolest hair in de business anyway!

The funny thing is that his height looks pretty steady in each movie. He maybe used to look a little taller, but thats because he gained some weight these days I think.

He's about 2-3 inches shorter than 6'3" Brendan Fraser in Blast from the past, so around 6 seems reasonable.
Mario said on 7/Jan/06
To me he looks 6 ft 1, also today.
When I saw him with De Niro in the Deer Hunter, I was shocked how short De Niro was next him.
bernar said on 13/Oct/05
in the movie Batman Returns mr Walken seems to be much taller than mr Keaton at least 6 cm. comparing him to Andrew Bryniarski (he plays his son according to his site he is 6ft5inch ) makes me think that he is much over 6 ft. Walken seems to be max 2 inches shorter than Bryniarski. besides why Andrew Bryniarski isnt listed on the side??
Mr. R said on 14/Apr/05
I saw Walken two years ago during a screening of Catch Me If You Can. He was very engaging and funny - not at all like the crazies he portrays. He is also a fairly good singer and dancer. If you check out this film, Walken is clearly more than half an inch taller than Leo, and my personal account indicates that he is about 6-1.
The Continental said on 3/Mar/05
Walken does have probably the goofiest hairdo around, he just comes off as being a wacky guy. He's probably somewhere between 6'0"-6'1", and he would be my first pick to play Sly if I were casting a Taming of the Shrew movie...
