A good guy to play bond would be either Clive Owen, Mark Strong (with hair!), Eric Bana or Hugh Jackman. All possess the tall dark and handsome look. I'm not gay when I say that.

Ace, its a MOVIE. Its about how u look. Obviously real "bonds" have nothing to do with looks or muscles. So Roger Moore kicks ass with just one ironic smile while daniel has to do lots of stupid unreal action. Bond HAS to be tall. Same as Bond cannot be gay.
Daniel said on 4/Apr/09
He is really the shortest Bond ever, but never looks less than 1.80m (5'11'') to me.
Ace said on 3/Apr/09
Mamonazo, i would say that daniel craig is certainly not unqualified to play Bond. In fact, he is probably the best actor to play Bond ever.
Josh said on 2/Apr/09
I heard that craig did were lifts in some scenes in the two bond films to look taller beside the tall actors on one site.
mamonazo said on 2/Apr/09
craig is too short to be james bond at his 5-10. At least he has the muscles...All Bond represent the real masculine tall man. They should hire some other bigger actor. mel Gibson was too short for the role.
Thomas said on 1/Apr/09
Hey Ben stiller has to be taller or Daniel Craig shorter??

Craig compared to the wrestler actor Rourke is the same as the Glenn fellow on this site compared to Rourke.

Almaric could be shorter than 5'6 or Craig is wearing lifts. There are more than 4 inches between them.
Sam said on 30/Mar/09
um double D im 6'0.25 and am more a man than you. Go away.
Double B said on 28/Mar/09
Bond needs to be at least 6'1" or tall. Height is a must for a real man.
Daniel said on 27/Mar/09
I've read Amalric is 5'6'', and Craig seems 5 inches taller in "Quantum of Solace".
Doug said on 23/Mar/09
Any estimates about Mathieu Amalric's height? He looked noticeably short I thought, 5-6 likely.
sodapop said on 19/Mar/09
I agree Daniel Craig is the best Bond period!! He also has the best body. 5'10" is a great height for a man, He looks pretty tall on screen. Who the hell says you have to be 6'1" to be James Bond, gimme a freakin break!! I wouln'dnt want to be that tall anyway, its abnormal
italian boy said on 18/Mar/09
he is a solid 5.10 ft guy maybe something more
Lara said on 15/Mar/09
He does look tall, but isn't he the shortest James Bond ever? 5"10 seems right for him.
anonymous said on 9/Mar/09
He looks taller than 5 foot 9 charlie sheen. 5 foot 10.
anonymous said on 6/Mar/09
At the oscars, next to 5 foot 2 sarah jessica parker with super heels. He is still 15cm taller. 5 foot 10. He looks tall.
MD said on 4/Mar/09
Will, it's not really that he can't be taken seriously as a lead in an action movie, it's that he is noticeably shorter than all of the other actors who played James Bond. But, I think he's long sinced convinced most everyone that he's one of the best Bonds, if not the best, so it shouldn't anger you, at least not anymore.
Will said on 3/Mar/09
It makes me angry that a guy who is of average height cant be portrayed as manly or play a leading role in a action film without wearing lifts, this guy is 5'10 at least, and I think he is one of the best Bonds yet.
andrew said on 2/Mar/09
I believe 5'11" may have easily been before starting heavy body training for the Bond movies. In Munich definately looks that tall. As far as I know heavy weights may cause shrinkage, but even as far as only the overall frame considered a more muscular body looks stockier and thus shorter.
Taylor said on 23/Feb/09
I think he's 5'9.5" to 5'10"... no taller. In that barefoot picture with Paltrow she has horrible posture and is leaning back. Straightened up she'd be very close to his height. That pic is the best evidence of Daniel Craig's height.
RisingForce said on 22/Feb/09
I'd say that he's probably 5'10" like his co-star said. He sure isn't 6'0" like he gets listed sometimes, otherwise his height wouldn't have been a big deal. 5'11" is possible, but then why would he need lifts to be taller than his 5'7" co-star in heels?
Dimitri said on 21/Feb/09
In casino royal he looked kinda 1,80 I think..but in Quantum of solace he looked like 1,75...I think he is 1,77 :)
glenn said on 21/Feb/09
sorry i missed your post mr-r.whenever daniel or anyone is in new york city i find them.he was at a screening.he was ok i heard.not receptive at the bond premier last year was another report.usually not nice.he lives here.which makes it near impossible to get him actually.
kevy said on 20/Feb/09
i think he is defently 6'0 he just looks smaller cause of his wider chest n short legs
jim said on 18/Feb/09
he's not short but he appears so moslty because of his constitution and because the other bonds we're tall athletic types with long legs, short torso with large chests and long necks
OliTheMan said on 13/Feb/09
Anonymous, a lot of people can be sensitive about their height (even if it's 5"10) because, while that may be a decent height, will still make many men feel insecure when next to 6"2" guys or whatnot. Actors would definitely feel that way.
Zach #2 said on 9/Feb/09
i saw him at the BAFTAS, dude is a solid 5 10"
Anonymous said on 9/Feb/09
His topcoat in the Bafta photos makes him look short. It is said he is sensitive about his height. Why would he be sensitive if he was 5'10"?
Daniel said on 6/Feb/09
To me, the guy didn't look less than 1.80m in Quantum of Solace. Didn't look tall either.
RisingForce said on 4/Feb/09
That's true about his co-star, they probably played back the footage of her in heels next to Daniel and she looked a little taller. She also said Daniel is 5-10, but if he was 5-10 then she couldn't have been taller than him in heels and be 5-7. Something odd is going on there.

I remember him being clearly shorter than Jay Leno and Leno is certainly no more than 5-11. I think Craig is around 5-10 like his co-star says or a bit under. He looks too tall to be a flat 5-9 to me though.
Mr. R. said on 2/Feb/09
Glen, how did u know where to find Daniel Craig? What is your secret in finding celebs? Since I live in LA, I run into people all the time, but you seem to know where to go to find them.
Mr. R. said on 2/Feb/09
Risingforce, I like you! I think that Craig is about 5-9, because as I mentioned earlier, his Russian costar said she was taller than him in 3 inch heels and she was listed at 5-7. I think she might be 5-8 and is downgrading herself. That would make her 5-11 in heels, and he would be 5-10 in dress shoes.
RisingForce said on 2/Feb/09
6 foot seems too much. In reality though we know he's atleast average height. The reason he's called short is that every Bond actor prior to him was over 6 feet. Remember what a big deal it was when Mel Gibson was rumored to be the next James Bond?
glenn said on 1/Feb/09
thanks ralph.
Ralph said on 31/Jan/09
glenn is right. the man is 5'11"-6'.
cannot understand you have him so short.
RisingForce said on 31/Jan/09
That may be true Mr. R, especially since he's playing a secret agent. Just like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible. Atleast Cruise claimed 5-9 once though.

I think Craig wears lifts now. Remember the picture where he looked 6 foot next to Robert De Niro? Then on another ocassion he looked 5-10 at best next to Jay Leno. Of course De Niro's posture can make him seem 5-7 at times in pictures(next to Al Gore and Mike Tyson).

From movies like Layer Cake and Casino Royale I got a 5-9 impression too. I'm not sure he's that short, but maybe a weak 5-10.
glenn said on 31/Jan/09
he was 5-11 when i saw friends say 6ft.i agree with lmeister.though i always said he looked 5-9ish in casino.

Something's just not adding up in these pictures, and I'm not sure which of the actors it is that's got me skeptical. Is Jaime really 5'7"?
Mr. R. said on 30/Jan/09
Risingforce, just like Tom Cruise, Danny boy does not want us to know that there are some things about him that are like the average male. It destroys his hypermasculine mythology.
RisingForce said on 29/Jan/09
What's odd is how he won't claim a height.
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/09
DC is very lean (even though this is supposed to be about height which I believe is actually 5'9" tops and maybe even shorter). The camera makes him look bigger as it does all celebs. I live in the NY area and often see celebs and models that are extremely thin but don't appear that way in photos and on film.
Reggie339 said on 24/Jan/09
In Quantum of Solace Daniel Craig looked about two inches shorter than most of his male co-stars with the exception of Mathieu Amalric who stands at about 5 foot six...

While it is true that craig wore lifts for many of the scenes he still apeared short throughout the movie. Ill put him at about 5'9
bobby said on 17/Jan/09

heres gemma aterton listed at 5' 7" in about 3/4 heals.. making her about 5'10.. with pirates star machenzie cook who is openly listed at 5' 9".. there about the same.. so for DC to be shorter than her in heels...must mean is def not 5' 10
MD said on 14/Jan/09
He's not even remotely thin/skinny, either. People are so overweight these days that average people are called skinny. It's just silly.

Just watched the Jay Leno clip on youtube and as he left the stage, Jay clearly had him by 2 inches at least. If Jay is 5'11" -- that makes Dan 5'9". He is really thin so gives the impression of being taller.
mikec said on 10/Jan/09
he was on jay leno yesterday and he was definately in the 5'10-5'11 range when he first greeted jay leno.I think rob has him about right. he also had a suit that I swear could of been no less than 3500 dollars and it looked super slick.
Lenad said on 10/Jan/09
Looks 5ft10ish to me.
Daii said on 8/Jan/09
He looks a weak 5'10 to me (about 176 cms barefoot)
linebacker40 said on 6/Jan/09
He looks like a very solid 5'10", near 5'11" at times. Very well built, too, giving him that long, athletic look.
Viviana Archuleta said on 4/Jan/09
I think he's about 5 10 1/2. he's really cute tho.
annibal said on 4/Jan/09
he is 5ft 9.75(177cm)
anonymous said on 1/Jan/09
5 foot 10.
Matt said on 28/Dec/08
Just an average 5'10.

He's not like a Matt Le Blanc or a Jonathan Rhys-Meyers who both appear a shade shorter than many. Craig can look pretty tall at times; lifts or no lifts, that is difficult to do if you're any less than 5'10
Zach #2 said on 23/Dec/08
im guessing DC is 5ft 10.25 (morning height) and 5ft 9.75 (evening height)
adam said on 21/Dec/08
Possibly under 5-10 and wears lifts 24 hours a day.
anonymous said on 21/Dec/08
In munich, he looked like a strong 5 foot 11. Eric bana only had 8cm on him. Even if he was wearing lifts, bana is wearing dress shoes too. 5 foot 10.
GUK said on 20/Dec/08
I still think daniel is a strong 5ft 10, approaching 5ft 11. If you search google for pics with Mads Mikkelsen nad he's no more than 1.5 inches smaller, possibly an inch. I think he's 179
Vibram said on 15/Dec/08
Click Here Compare to rapper "P Diddy" listed 179cm / 5ft10.5. Craigs in dress shoes and P Diddy's got hiking boots on so I don't think ones got much of a footwear advantage over the other. Craig looks 0.75" / 2cm shorter, so 177cm for Craig is possible; 5ft9.75.
Roger said on 14/Dec/08
Complex, this height charst is worthless. It has Timothy Dalton at 6', who actually was at least as tall as Sean Connery.

Good point you make, Mr. R.
toadyking said on 14/Dec/08
anonymouse, why are you using the bond movies to deduce his height? I already said "just a heads up to those trying to deduce his height from the bond movies, forget it, being the shortest bond actor they have to use camera angles, lifts, proportion to other objects to make him appear taller."
Mr. R said on 11/Dec/08
Actually, Anonymous, Olga Kurylenko gave an interview, where she stated that she was 5-7 and that she was three inches shorter than Craig. However, she contradicted herself when she stated that in her three inch heels she was taller than him, which led to the lifts, or built up shoes. With three inch heels she should have been looking him in the eye, or a little less because he too is wearing dress shoes, which if we believe 5-10, would make him at least 5-11. Based on his co-star's oral history, Craig has to be closer to 5-9 than 5-10.
Complex said on 11/Dec/08
Click Here
Shows the bond heights comparisons here, says 5'10 for Craig, maybe he is less if 5'10 is his max, who knows, but it also has Mel Gibson at 5'8, which is more accurate than the 5'10 ppl claim for him, but it's inaccurate tho cuz it has a picture of connery and says 6'3, which isn't true!
JJ said on 10/Dec/08
Alright PJ I understand your argument. I still disagree though.

An inch difference is not that obvious anonymous, that's like people saying 5'11 is average and 6 foot is tall. They're either both average or they're both tall.
Anonymous said on 10/Dec/08
When he is clearly cited by others in interviews (as in the one with Gemma Arterton someone linked to on hear mentioning he wears lifts) as being 5'10" and this looking a realistic height. Why is he not listed as 5'10" rather than 5'10.25" ? That fraction cannot be seen and is unlikely and you may as well demote other celebs on here from 6' to 5'11.75" or up from 5'9.75" to 5'10" it is a minimal fraction that is too small to see. Half inches is the most you can say is a celbrities height bearing in mind you havent measured ANY of the celebs on this site.
anonymous said on 10/Dec/08
He never looks 5 foot 9. A strong 5 foot 10. I just cant see him as 5 foot 9. It's just to short for someone of his size.
PJ said on 9/Dec/08
JJ, since I disagree I'll leave you with this. I am 5'9 barefoot, 5'10 in shoes. Gemma Aterton at 5'7 plus heels is approx 5'10, and in the same scenes Craig is both slightly taller then her AND wearing lifts. What does that tell you? He's under 5'10. Perhaps overly simplified, but makes the most sense to me. We could split hairs, but I'll stick with him and body proportions indicating 5'9.
JJ said on 8/Dec/08
PJ I think your basis is completely flawed. First of all the co starts commented about the fact that Craig HAD to wear lifts in order to appear taller than one of the girls. If you look for those scenes in the movie you will clearly spot the difference, his legs look longer than they usually do. Now if you watch any other scene in that movie or Casino Royale his legs look normal length and very proportional to his height. Being Bond, he wears dress shoes for the most part which puts him at around a 5'11 mark.

I think he is a legit 5'10 man. His build and physique on the other hand is much better than most men tall or short. I'd rather have his body than be 6'2 and lanky, which I am now.
Neon Genesis said on 8/Dec/08
He looks shorter than 5' 10" (1.78 m), maybe in shoes, but barefoot more likely something like 5' 9" (1.75 m)
anonymous said on 6/Dec/08
He is a definate 5 foot 10 with or without lifts. He is built and 5 foot 10 is a good height for his physique.
Roger said on 5/Dec/08
Well, De Niro at 5'9'', that a new "Glennism", lol.
RisingForce said on 4/Dec/08
Well whatever he is, he's clearly taller than Paltrow based on the barefoot scene. This proves women are bad at judging height usually(that's how multiple woman estimated Arnold from 5'4"-5'6"). Either way that's a great find Roger and it suggests that they are possibly less than an inch apart at the very least.
PJ said on 4/Dec/08
Obvious to me that Craig utilizes lifts in every day life as he does in films. Judging by all evidence I've seen and read, his body proportions, what co-stars have stated, etc, I'd wager he is 5'9 and no taller.
anonymous said on 3/Dec/08
In casino royale he towers over judi dench and has a good inch on 5 foot 9 gemma arterton and two inches on 5 foot 8 olga kurylenko. 5 foot 10 seems right.
glenn said on 3/Dec/08
especially when deniro can still look near 5-9 to me.that paltrow story is ridiculous.i appreciate the find.but i dont believe someone is telling the truth.
Leung said on 2/Dec/08
yeah glenn seeing Daniel Craig tower over DeNiro did appear dubious, I suspect that he was getting a little assistance that day.
Roger said on 2/Dec/08
Glenn and all, I found this very interesting piece: "Hollywood beauty GWYNETH PALTROW had to remove her shoes when filming scenes with her SYLVIA co-star DANIEL CRAIG - because he is much shorter than she is.

The OSCAR-winning actress admits movie bosses made her short co-star appear taller than he actually is.

Gwyneth, 31, says, "Put it this way. I'm definitely taller than he is. When we were in scenes together I'd always be taking my shoes off.

"But they did a good job of making us seem similar in height, but you can tell he's not 6 feet 4 inches. Which is strange because he has this hulking presence."

Now, to write that he is much shorter than her, is obviously total BS. But it seems DC is shorter than 5'10.25''.

Rob, I asked already and repeat - why don't you change DC to 5'10''? The evidence is really overwhelming that he is for sure not above 5'10'', and very possibly even below.
RisingForce said on 2/Dec/08
Leno did look taller than Craig
Click Here

Letterman looks like he'd have about 4 inches on Craig if he were standing straight

Craig is tricky, he can look either 5-10 or 5-11.
Roger said on 2/Dec/08
Good point, Glenn, with De Niro. It seems De Niro has shrunken considerably. Lifts for DC do the rest, I guess.
glenn said on 2/Dec/08
paltrow is 5-9.
glenn said on 2/Dec/08
i dont have a problem with craig being 5-10.jude law was 5-11ish barefoot next to michael caine in slueth.though how does craig tower deniro at the bond premiere by at least 3 inches?
Roger said on 1/Dec/08
I have found a worthwhile discussion about DC's height on, here it is:
Click Here

One of the most important extracts from it - Gwyneth Paltrow is probably not even 5'9''. Read the post on the first site where Jude Law is taken as reference - Jude has himself said he is 5'9'' and that he wears lifts that give him 2 inches (hence he is, wrongly, listed as 5'11'' here). Now, the lifted Jude Law is basically even with a high heeled Paltrow.

Now, if you have checked out 5'9'' + 2 inch lift Jude Law with heeled Paltrow, check out this photo - Paltrow again with heels (which should put her at 5'11''), next to Daniel Craig: Click Here

Pretty scary, if you ask me.

While I respect Glenn's estimates in general, I have concluded he is seriously off here, Daniel Craig cannot be taller than 5'10'', and might even be a notch below.
RisingForce said on 1/Dec/08
He did look 5-10 next to Leno and Letterman actually.

I still see 5-10.5, 5-11 in the barefoot picture though.
Roger said on 1/Dec/08
Hadn't read this yet, Glenn, that you have actually met DC before he became 007.

Rising, take a close look at the posture of both Gwyneth and DC. I certainly don't see more than an inch between them, and of course there is Jay Leno being visibly taller than DC, same goes for 181 cm Mads Mikkelsen (hope I wrote the name correctly).

Just as an idea, Glenn - if you have DC at 5'11'', he'd now have Arnold's height. If you compare the two from when you met them, does this seem possible?
glenn said on 30/Nov/08
i mentioned many times i met daniel a year before he was bond. he seemed friends say 6ft is absurd,and i do agree he usually looks 5-10.
Toky said on 30/Nov/08
What's wrong with him not saying how tall he is? He IS entitled to his privacy and the whole world doesn't need to know. He is an amazing actor :] His height makes no difference.
RisingForce said on 30/Nov/08
Roger, you're entitled to your opinion but how do you see an inch max? I thought Craig was 5'10" max and possibly shorter until I saw that picture.
Roger said on 29/Nov/08
Glenn, DC was shorter than Jay Leno - watch the clip on youtube, when they shake hands. On the photo with Paltrow, he has not more than an inch on her.

I hope you will meet Daniel, Glenn, to give us a final verdict.
MD said on 26/Nov/08
Yes, a 5'8" woman is equivalent to a 6'2" man in most countries. It's tall no matter which way you turn it.
Viper said on 26/Nov/08
A 5-8 female seems taller than 90-95 percent of other females. So yeah, its rare.
Leung said on 26/Nov/08
The average difference between men and women is more like 4.5
The Horse of FUNK said on 26/Nov/08
5'8" is tall for a girl. If I recall 5'8" is taller than 90-95% of other females, so yeah, do the math. It may not seem tall, but wait until a 5'8" girl puts some heels on.
glenn said on 26/Nov/08
i agree with viper.

The Bond producers, when they first picked Daniel Craig, had him measured by the outfitters. He is the shortest Bond of them all. He stands at 6 feet even, without shoes.
anonymous said on 22/Nov/08
Olga kurylenko is a tall girl, she's between 175-177cm and daniel craig was taller than her when they were walking on the beach in the movie. I would say he's between 178-180cm. He's taller than you think.

Weak 5' 10" with Paltrow on a beach, both in barefeet.

Evan Faine said on 20/Nov/08
She's only 5'8"...imo, that's not really tall for a girl. I think 5'10" and up for a girl could be be considered tall.

As for Craig, I just read the wardrobe people from QoS measured him at 5'9". What I don't get is how can he fit lifts into those shoes. Those are pretty thin shoes he wears with that tuxedo outfit, not exactly the type of shoes that can accomodate lifts.
Daniel said on 20/Nov/08
I could be wrong, but I just watched Quantum of Solace yesterday and throughout the whole film, Craig seemed to be in the 1.80m - 1.82m range. Neither taller than this nor shorter than that. Besides, he looked very well proportioned and athletic, not lean. Maybe around 83kg.
Rose said on 20/Nov/08
olga is taller than him... he had to wear small platforms durring 007 Solace...she's so tall!!!
anonymous said on 18/Nov/08
Olga kurylenko is 177cm and daniel craig is a couple of inches taller. She's a tall actor. In rove, he looked a good 3 inches taller and rove is 173cm. 180cm seems accurate.
Mr. R said on 18/Nov/08
The Gemma Arterton quote is suspicious. If she is 5-7 and he is three inches taller at 5-10, she would have to wear 4 inch heels to be taller than him. Is that possible? Someone's not telling the truth here!

By the way, sorry I have been gone for so long. I ended up getting very sick and spent time in the hospital for awhile. I am good to go now.

Mathias said on 17/Nov/08
Just saw Quantum last night.....not bad at all. On a side note, ever since I found this site, I can't stop looking at people's height (like it's true measure of somebodies worth, haha) Anyway, craig appeared anywhere from 5'8-6'1 in the movie based on the characters he was around most the time.

There was a scene where he was at a party standing with Olga Kurylenko (in heels mind you, putting her around 5'11) and craig appears about 2-3 inches taller than her. So they get into with a bunch of people and the next scene they are walking next to each other on a beach, Olga has her heels off, and craig looks maybe 2 inch taller in dress shoes (definitely not lifts because the shoes were about a 1/4 of the size of the shoes he was wearing for most of the movie lol, no harm intended though I'm 5'8 and wear "big boots" sometimes haha)
Sorry for the long's my first.

I'de say the short end of 5'9 seems right
Lenor said on 17/Nov/08
The bad opening music made him appear shorter. I'd say between 5'7" and 5'8".
Jem said on 17/Nov/08
Still hunky, brooding and dangerous, Daniel Craig appears to be a leaner and smaller version of himself in Quantum of Solace. I think more bulk and camera angles in Casino Royale made for a taller, bigger appearance. I would be VERY surprised if he topped out at 5'9". More likely 5'8". Solace is a great ride and should really be seen with Casino Royale for story continuity and Bond's personal evolution as a 007. As a stand alone movie it seems lacking in character development but is still thrilling and interesting.
Ed(1) said on 17/Nov/08
I just saw Quantum of Solace earlier tonight, and Craig looked at best 5ft10 in the film! During a few scenes he gave the impression of near 6ft in his "special" shoes, but for the majority of the film he looked to be pushing 5ft11 tops in his regular all-around footwear. I'd guess he's between 5ft9.5-5ft10 tops!

i have seen 2 movies with daniel craig. in casino royale he looked 5ft10 and in layer cake he looked like a strong 5ft9 so i would say 5ft9.5 for Mr Bond with 2inch shoes makes him very close to 6ft
RisingForce said on 14/Nov/08
I think he's 5'11", he looked that height barefoot next to Gwyneth Paltrow.
Debbie said on 14/Nov/08
He's not tall, probably 5'9". When people in their posts say something about his female stars being tall and that he's taller means nothing did anyone see Atonement? , Keira is 5'10" and James was taller than her?? He's a SHRIMP in real life, come on, did any of you ever see an Alan Ladd movie??? Craig's got a beautiful body, he just needs a PAPER BAG OVER HIS HEAD!!!!
Dural said on 13/Nov/08
Craig wears lifts in quantum of solace and Olga Kurylenko is 5'8" in reality. They made him look tall in the new bond with many short actors on his side. I agree with leonari 6' is absurd. He can look 5'11"+ but that's with lifts.
cliff said on 13/Nov/08
max 5'11 min 5'95
artek said on 12/Nov/08
its been reported several time that due to his female co-star's height he was required to wear lifts. in quantum of solace that is.
Inch Worm said on 12/Nov/08
Just to throw the cat amongst the pigeons heres a recent picture of Craig with Bob DeNiro.Click Here
anonymous said on 11/Nov/08
Go watch quantum of solace and tell me he's not 6 foot. He's taller than olga kurylenko in the movie and she is 177cm. He's not that short as people think. He might be 181cm but close enough. Dont know about this guy he has a range of heights. I think 180-182cm is accurate no shorter.
leonari said on 11/Nov/08
6 foot for Craig is absurd. Never does he look that tall. Never. Not in a single pic, movie.
anonymous said on 10/Nov/08
In the quantom of solace he stands next to his co star olga kurylenko, he is taller by 2 inches. She is reportedly 177cm and she had flats on. 6 foot max. No taller. Mayber 5 foot 11 to 6 foot.
UnKnown said on 10/Nov/08
I really thought he would be 187 cm (6 ft 1.5 in) .. but after reading the comments i was shocked because I'm at least 180 cm ( 5 ft 11 in ) and I didn't ever think that I might be taller than him.
derbi said on 8/Nov/08
Leonari, I agree with you on craig. I also missed a couple of classic james bond things in quantum of solace. Although I think craig and marc forster have did a good job.
leonari said on 7/Nov/08
quantum is a terrible movie. shame. I was really excited about this flic. What a waste of time. Craig does a good job as always and he looks 5'10" or 179 cm. Not taller. Flat 5'9"? Never...

I'm thinking 179 more and more
GUK said on 6/Nov/08
A few years ago the British secret service were looking for spies and the maximum height was 5ft 11, The reasoning being you had to blend into crowds. So Craig is absolute right for the part. I'm thinking 179 for him now given recent evidence and the fact he looks taller/as tall as Pitt to Jollie and Palrow
Felix said on 6/Nov/08
I think it's easy to say that Craig does look shorter than what he really is. He leavs a pretty short impression because of his short neck, his head is pretty small to his body aswell. I think the shortest he is 176 and the tallest 178. Great actor!
James W. said on 6/Nov/08
Craig is not 5'9 people...don't be silly...he's 5'10...the pics with Hanks and Gwyneth prove it

I think a little dowgradeto just 5'10" would be correct.
harry said on 6/Nov/08
his real height is 5'8" the magic 5'10 in his lifts. Brilliant actor though - he makes Bond look 6'3" on the screen with his presence.
Evanna said on 5/Nov/08
If Gemma Arterton is 5'7", Daniel Craig is 5'10" flat. Here's a quote (Look mag, 03/11/2008, p. 34):

LOOK: We head that he had to have a little help in the height department?
GEMMA: The whole point of Bond is that he is masculine and hunky and he has to be taller than his girlfriend. Even though Daniel's three inches taller than me, I had to wear high heels, so he had to wear shoes with a lift in them and stacked heels for a few scenes, but he took it very well. (Etc.)
Elf said on 4/Nov/08
I don't think he looks anything under 5'11" on the red carpet or wherever. Standing against 6'3" Prince William I'd have expected him to be dwarfed but far from it. William is slouching but not by much. Craig looks close to six foot a lot of the time. I'd imagine he is 5'10" barefoot as Gemma claimed but in shoes 5'11"-6'0".
RisingForce said on 3/Nov/08
Rob probably has him right although he did look 5'11" barefoot next to 5'9" Gwyneth Paltrow. He's no shorter than 5'10" and possibly 5'11".
SBS said on 3/Nov/08
All of this talk of 5ft 9, 5ft 9.5 lol and the rest of the BS crap comments on here! Bronsan being over 6ft tall, Roger Moore etc. Forgive me for being direct!! But!! I suggest you watch Casino Royale again and read one of the original books!! Yes!! He was just over 6ft tall in the original books, but Craig is the closest to how Bond is in the book!

Put it this way, he looks like he could rip the head off the shoulder of all the other Bonds that have been! Regardless of height, he looks like the killer/assassin Bond should be!
Elf said on 3/Nov/08
Have a look at the end of the Jay Leno interview when Craig walks out. He doesn't look two inches smaller. He looks an inch taller than Leno. If Leno is 5'11, Craig is 6 feet.
Bob said on 2/Nov/08
Geez, I leave for a few months and look at the misinformation being spread.

Gentlemen, I assure you Daniel Craig is no taller then 177.875 cm. It's as clear as day, night, and twilight. When "A" becomes "~A" then perhaps there may be some debate.

Until then, let's set some limits on the rhetoric, shall we?

It disturbs my slumber.

Just saw him on the tonight show with Jay Leno. He is closer to being 5'9" tall. I know this because Jay Leno is 5'11". He was 2 at least 2 inches shorter then jay.

There is a very good chance he is 5ft11 next to Johnathan Ross he wasn't much smaller than him. In my opinion no smaller than 5ft10. Quite possibly he is 5ft10.5

It has often been remarked that he was too short to portray bond who was described by Ian Fleming as,'183 cm and 76 kg'. I thought he looked at least 5' 10" in 'Casino Royale' and I suppose if he is, it wouldn't exactly to ground breaking special effects to make him look 6 feet.

I think craig has done the right thing in not admitting his height, he is an enigmatic character and by doing this his height is now also a mystery. He is clearly in the mid average range anyway 5'9" to 5'11".

Rob, I think you make a mistake by listing DC at more than 5'10''.
You might remember the incident where 5'7'' Gemma Arterton was taller than DC when she was in heels, and how this lead to him having to wear lifts.
Now, DC wears normal shoes in this scene - and I don't think heels measure more than 3 inches. If they did, why didn't the director just change her shoes? There certainly are high heels available that make a 5'7'' woman no more than 5'10.5'' with them on.

Will you give my suggestion a thought to change DC to 5'9.75''?

Seriously though, 5'10'' is the max for Daniel - leaning stronger to 177 cm than 178 cm. A set report from Bregenz, Austria stated how a woman was disappointed because Daniel Craig is too short for a Bond.
Rob said on 6/Sep/08
I'm 5'9.5 and I have the same sort of thing as Craig. Obviously not as much since he is a celeb but you know what I mean. People who guess my height put me anywhere between 5'8 - 5.11 because the 5'9 5'10 height can look tall or short depending on how a person holds themselves etc. Therefore Craig must be in this strange height range as well and is between the 5'9.5 to 5.10.5 range as he appears short in Sylvia and tallish in Bond. I suppose you can argue he wears lifts in Bond but you would have thought he would have done so in Sylvia as well as Paltrow is quite tall for a women and only had about an inch off him making her 5'8 or 5'9. I dont know what it is that is only a guess. I think an accurate height count for Craig is a inch more then Paltrow whatever that is.

Amen, Matt. 5'10" is too short to look tall, but too tall to look short. Just nice and average!

As for Craig, I reckon 5'10" on the mark but I agree that people at 5'10" nobody seems to believe and assumes they must be taller or shorter (as you mentioned being moved down to 5'9" or up to 5'11!)

the guy just looks short in royale. a legit 5'10 wouldnt look short on screen, leading me to see 5 9 max for him barefoot

I thought he looked 5'11 in Casino Royale. 5'10 actually looks short on screen, generally, but average/tallish in real life. Practically all legitimate 5'10 guys on this site are downgraded by people en masse. Craig has the body and proportions of a thin solid 5'10 guy, like Guy Pearce or Gabriel Byrne.
Lmeister said on 20/Aug/08
I agree with you Paul 178cm. All the other Bonds have been kinda lame except Roger Moore, but his Bond movies are just camp humour. Gotta say that the "blond" Bonds are better.
Paul 178cm said on 19/Aug/08
This estimation of 178cm seems perfect for Daniel Craig, although 177cm or even 176 wouldn't amaze me. Fantastic body and proportions in Casino Royale, can't wait for Quantum of Solace. I hope they don't go the way of Batman the dark knight ( all action and stunts and no plot). Craigs Height and build brings a certain believability to the role of James Bond. No offence to the other Bond actors, but Craig doesn't have that attitude like he was born with a better pot to piss in.

5'10'' is the maximum, but still -he is an interesting looking guy. Not necessarily attractive, but he has charisma
Mr. R said on 1/Aug/08
When he was chosen, Craig was listed at 5-11. However, any actor at 5-11 in Hollywood would surely claim 6 feet. Therefore, I believe Craig is between 5-9 and 5-10 and the producers knew that they could not get away with calling him 6 feet, because he is a few inches shorter than that.

So confusing really because I had him down as the same height as Jonny Lee Miller.

In the german speaking countries the news says she'd be 1.70m and he 1.77m. If she's wearing heels that make her 1.77 the most, and he dress shoes that make him about 1.80 how the hell could he look smaller then? I guess he wasn't smaller but should appear a lot taller than her (not just 2,3 cm).

Editor Rob
maybe she was wearing true near 4 inch theory though they'd be same height...
dom said on 21/Jul/08
I do believe he is probably around 5'9 without shoes and probably is given lifts to boost him up to 10.5 or 11. The thing is he is very slight so therefore he looks taller on screen, i think its also how you film him from certain angles that make him look bigger. But truth be told it doesn't matter if he isn't 5'10 because he is the best bond since connery. I mean surely if you were six foot you might stick out as a target. Thing is he's just an average guy but a great actor, and the best thing to happen to the bond franchise since sliced bread.

NYMedStudent said on 15/Jun/08
Anon2008, as was reported in the April 1, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics (JAAP), appropriate weight training programs have no effect on linear growth or growth plates. However, you should always maintain a level of skepticism when no clinical trials have demonstrated this conclusively. Nevertheless, please key in on appropriate. There is a height relationship to diet (calcium rich foods) and physical activity, such that physical activity will have a positive influence on height during spurts. That said, one's genetic make-up ultimately plays a greater role as a height determinant.

Exercise in the U.S. population is generally viewed as a way to aesthetically improve one's appearance. However, the health benefits of exercise should be emphasized for young people. Diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease has been linked to childhood obesity, which often carries over into adulthood. Rather than emphasizing a muscle bound appearance, as a society we must concern ourselves with these important health issues. Having seen these affects first hand in the clinic, I will tell you, you don't want to end up on a a downward spiral of something like heart disease; it's not just that these individual die at younger age, these disease decreasethe quality of life at early ages such as in one's 40s or 50s is greatly diminished.

Bottom line: MODERATION of food intake and plenty of age appropriate exercise.

Again, the AAP recommends: "Preadolescents and adolescents should avoid power lifting, body building, and maximal lifts until they reach physical and skeletal maturity."
Aimie said on 31/May/08

Anon2008 said on 28/Apr/08
NYMedStudent, old post you made but I wanted to address what you said about weight lifting and height. I think this is supposed to be a myth and it doesn't stunt growth unless you were to injure your self in some sort of way. Plenty of guys have lifted weights in their teens growing up (Shaquille O'Neal, David
Robinson, Karl Malone, Michael Vick, Dave Draper, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Ferrigno etc.)

In fact I think when you lift weights in a healthy way it should help your growth, not harm it.

well the 6-foot reputation is to keep the james bond description.all previous bond's were over six foot and i believe ian fleming even described bond in one of his books as "6 foot" or something.

daniel craig is 5'10, but you would never hear him publicly announcing that,not until the next 5 years or so.regardless of that,craig is the best actor to have played bond in my opinion-only connery did better in from russia with love. if you also notice,he's avoided all sorts of barefoot pictures with people since he's become bond.

He's probably about 5"10/5"11, however he does look shorter than this because he's a lot more beefy now days, so he'll look shorter.

Saw him a couple of years ago in London, stood next to him in a shop ; he's not much taller than me at 5'7". Perhaps 5'8" ? But looks somehow more imposing because of that special radiance that stars give off.
Tom said on 21/Feb/08
Thanks Matt. All i'm saying is that while his height (not even that short either!) seems to be an issue for the ian fleming's bond purists, it works cinematically. let's not forget that alot of those great action heroes weren't that tall either (steven mcqueen or charles bronson) but there was believability in their action movements. it seems that people who aren't very tall can really work with alot of space. i really mean it when i say to carefully observe pierce brosnan's running and action movements. it is pretty awkward. his fight scenes are pretty stiff, almost like how keanu reeves performs martial arts in matrix series. yet, you can still have tall people like sean connery perform convincingly well. i read a korean article that was about why martial arts worked more smoothly with asians rather than non-asians. height was the major factor.
Matt said on 21/Feb/08
Nicely put Tom, especially the part about Connery's graceful movement. If memory serves me correctly, there is an old anecdote that when Connery was a complete unknown auditioning for the role of Bond, one of the people present said "I like the way he moves. Like a panther." It was like a prowl with a little bounce in his step. I have never paid attention to the way people walk...but I could watch Connery walk all day long! ;)

Going off a scene in Casino Royale - where he's walking through a crowd in Venice - I can't see how he could be any taller than 5'10". He blends into the crowd like a spy should!

I think its to Daniel Craig's benefit that he is not AS TALL AS those bond actors. what do i mean? well, with the exception of sean connery, the 6ft and over bond actors were a bit stiff in their manuverability and action. did you observe how pierce brosnan fights and runs? daniel craig moves with more fluid and he is able to execute action sequences with more balance. you rarely see tall people performing convincing martial arts. sure, steven segal was like 6'5 but he did aikido and that involves more upper body movement than jump kicks. now, i say sean connery is an exception because while he was pretty tall, he moved pretty gracefully. he had background in weight-lifting (he was 3rd place mr universe) and football.

Looks around the 5'10.5" mark, nothing less than 5'10" though.

Very well writen Matt.
I also agree with 5ft10.
Matt said on 27/Jan/08
Chris, I think by that point Craig was just fed up with being questioned over his suitability for the role. I'm a big Bond fan and followed the whole process from the first day. The media (and new media) were saying he had the wrong colour hair, the wrong eyes, the wrong look, the wrong height, the wrong attitude, the wrong constitution etc. Craig actually said that he checked out that infamous CraigNotBond site when he was online one day, and it led to a "dark few days". So I think he started off quite taciturn, knowing that anything he said could incriminate him ("5'10"? WOW! WAAAAAAY too short! He said it himself! Short Bond! He should be over six foot!"), but gradually lightened up as he got increasingly accustomed to the whole publicity demands -- and as his credibility in the role started to shore up.

I mean, I don't think anybody here has argued that he is *lower* than 5'9". We've had a couple of people say he is 5'9" on the nose, many suggest he is 5'9.5", and most say he is 5'10". He is not like a Tom Cruise who has to make impossible gains. But he is around that 5'10" "golden height" mark whereby he can either dominate people, or gets dominated.

Why would somebody refuse to spread light on their height if they 6' or above? Or even 5'10...I know thats not the issue here but still. And surely the journalist quoted att he top of this page could have guessed his height, even if normal, normal-tall, normal-short.

"i met craig 2 1/2 years ago and he seemed 5-11.had dress shoes on.jerkoff too"

I had heard that he was abrasive to some but a lot of that apparently was a chip on his shoulder from all the negativity regarding him being selected as James Bond. He actually even alludes to that in the Casino Royale DVD extra features. Then again, maybe he really is a jerk. :-)

In my opinion, I don't believe Craig is less than 5'10" for the simple reason that I doubt they would have casted an actor that short to play James Bond. 5'10" at the absolute minimum, although I think he is somewhere nearer 5'11".

craig is 5'10 he looks close enaugh nicoles height can look 5'11 with small lifts and 5'9 with bad posture and converse
chris said on 21/Jan/08
standing next to nicole kidman he looked shorter than her,
nicole is 5'10.25,so he must be 5,9
dmeyer said on 13/Jan/08
he did look 5'9.5 max with hanks but hanks had thick heels like 1.5 and craigs had 0.6 so 2 cm disadvantage so 2 in differance
Johnny said on 12/Jan/08
I think Craig is a solid 5'11. Not shorter or taller. 5'10 is the lowest. He looked pretty tall in Casino Royale.

I met Craig when he was filming Casino Royale and to me he was very nice and caring. He's is one of the nicest people I've ever met. As for his height, he looked 5'10 to me.

Josua, I wonder how would you know for sure that "Craig wears elevator shoes all the time... Jackman IS 189, Craig about 178-179"??
Josua said on 29/Dec/07
Craig wears elevator shoes all the time... Jackman IS 189, Craig about 178-179.
Anonymous said on 25/Dec/07
After i've seen the pic with near to Hugh jackman , I don't think jackman is a 189 cm man ...or Craig is more than 1 78 cm!

"I believe that Craig is 5'11". In Casino Royale, there is a scene in the casino where he is shaking hands with the villain, who is 5'11.75" and there is not much height difference between them and they are both wearing dress shoes."

Looked about 2 inches shorter if I remember correct. He was also at least an inch to 2 shorter than the villians spy (who claims hes in cia)..allthough cant see their whole profile in the close up.

I think hes between 5'8.5-5'10..somewhere in their fully compressed before bed height.

Looks 5-10 1/2 to 5-11 to me.
