I'm 6 feet tall. Okay, I'm really 5 foot 10-and-a-half. I will get lifts! I'm not ashamed to say that. A little Tom Cruise lift never hurt anyone! I'm a big fan of Tom Cruise! I mean no disrespect!

🎁🎂🎉 Happy Birthday David! 🎉🎂🎁
David turns 48 years old today. I'd like to wish him a happy, happy day!

Nothing but respect for this guy. Nearing 50, had heart attack but has stepped back into the ring.
Closer to 5'9" these days.

Good listing bad pick he does got big feet not sure 13 maybe extra skinny..
The Shredder said on 16/Feb/18
I remember him looking shorter than Luke Perry in Buffy The Vampire Slayer , 5'9 is about right.
said on 14/Feb/18
I think the others may be right on this one, maybe more of a flat 5'9" than anything. Here he is with a listed 5'7.25" Stephen Dorff:
Dorff does have a footwear advantage, but I question even with the same footwear if that would be even a 2" difference.
He's such a cool and funny guy, though often misunderstood.
Arquette's always been a tricky guy...his posture isn't the best, so sometimes he looks barely 5ft 9. I do think him giving 5ft 10.5 was a shoe height.
Zeb said on 13/Feb/18
Arquette’s 5’9” at most.
Sandy Cowell said on 18/May/17
I enjoyed David's edgy and mysterious performance in Stephen King's 'Riding the Bullet', more so than his part in 'Scream'!
I will settle for 5ft10, but would have given him a tiny bit more if there had been a peak height box.
I like the fact that he admits so openly to wearing lifts - most unusual! 🍀
John said on 31/Mar/17
Agreed, 5'10.5 is a little much. But he's not under 5'10.
javk said on 10/Nov/16
he look just 4 inches taller than scott caan (5'5") in ready to rumble ...
S.J.H said on 10/Oct/16

I'm 5'10 and wear about 14 1/2-15 US size shoe. So not impossible. @jake
berta said on 21/Apr/16
kurt russell was the same height ore 1 cm taller
jake said on 5/Aug/15
5'9" at most.
Also kinda doubt the shoe size thing. Very rare for guys his height.
gregorovich said on 18/Jan/15
Rob...Time to upgrade him to at least 5'10". Several sightings of him in that range.
said on 28/Dec/14
He claims as being 5'10.5
"I am 5'10 1/2, my shoe size is 13"
[Editor Rob: ok thanks, I'll mention this in his description.]
stpaul said on 31/Oct/14
I've met him he us round 5'10.5
gregorovich said on 9/Aug/14
I walked past him the other night. Hi was a tad taller than me, and I'm 5'10".
gregorovich said on 8/Aug/14
Saw him last night. Taller than 5-9 for sure. At least 5-10 and probably a bit more.
Realist said on 27/Apr/14
Exactly 1 inch shorter 5'8.5
Looked 5'9.5 in Scream though. But around the same Lisa Kudrow in friends. Maybe a tad bit more.
said on 24/May/11
Rob, you have Glenn here XD
[Editor Rob: probably one of last two I never cropped out.]
said on 20/Dec/10
With 5'9'ish Howie Mandel:
With a legitimately 5'10" Seth MacFarland, who is leaning, even:
You can't see the footwear, but it's becoming more clear by the post that this guy is 5'9" TOPS.
[Editor Rob: he does have a loose stance in a lot of the photos he takes for sure, 5ft 9.5 might be nearer.
5ft 9 flat, I'm not as convinced of that yet.]

1 inch downgrade
Â® said on 15/Dec/10
Hes definitley 5'9,look at the pics
jtm said on 15/Dec/10
he is definitely 5'9.
linke said on 13/Dec/10
rob he doesnt look 5'10 with rob thomas
said on 11/Mar/09
LOL, he looks the same height or maybe marginally taller than 6-2 measured Shawne Merriman here. Click Here
This guy can look 5-7 to 6-3!!
said on 20/Dec/08
I hope the picture is of use...
Its interesting, we just had a picture taken with Daniel Craigs Wax model in Maddame Tussauds, and the model was also barely up to our Eye Level.... and Craigs meant to be 5'11" also?
I can send in the pic... not that it counts as a real life encounter, but one would presume his wax model is more than likely on the generous side in terms of sizing.
[Editor Rob: unless they really done a barefoot measurement of the actor being modelled, but how many actors haven't?]
IMRIGHT said on 19/Dec/08
IVE MET HIM HES SHORTER NO LIES I WAS SHOCKED AND IM 6'4 AND HE WAS SHORT LOL
RisingForce said on 19/Dec/08
Surprisingly he looks 5-9 max in everyone of these pictures.
frankys said on 19/Dec/08
he shold be downgraded
said on 18/Dec/08
rob, why isn't our picture up yet?
[Editor Rob: soon mate, maybe the morrow.]
said on 5/Dec/08
Actually he looks 5-11 next to 6-2 Merriman here at the 6:24 mark. Click Here
Merriman is leaning but its no more than 4 inches for sure between the two.
said on 2/Dec/08
He looked 4 inches shorter than 6-2 Shawne Merriman last night. Maybe closer to 5 actually. Hes not taller than 5-10 thats for sure.
Though how does 5-8 Mamum make him look 5-7?
[Editor Rob: arquette clearly looks taller in the above photo and with his right-sided looser posture is losing height...]
Lucifer said on 1/Oct/08
He is only 5"10'? I tought he was taller, I am 5"10' eh..
Del Mar said on 12/Aug/08
Can someone explain how mamum looks taller than the so-called 5 ft 10 David? :)
Mamun said on 12/Aug/08
Tony , you need to buy shoes with a soft soles and that are flat soled
as well just like our feet . We can't wear normal hard soled shoes that
have even a little heels on them . Only then can you walk comfortably with
shoes of your choices . If you go to a big shoe dept store and tell them
about your problem , they will be able to help you !
Tony said on 11/Aug/08
i thought this dude was like 6'1
mamun i have flat feet aswell and my feet bother me all the time cause of my shoes thats why i get shoes there fine for a week then they start hurting i take them right back
the only advantage we have is balance take Muhammed ali flatfooted thus perfect balance
Jed said on 11/Aug/08
Interesting, Mamun. I wonder which celebrities have flat feet aswell...hm
Mamun said on 11/Aug/08
Thank you so much ROB !
said on 11/Aug/08
My friend I have a condition known as " Flat foot " !! Yes my feet are flat
as hell and people with feet like mine can not and I will say it again " can
not wear heels " ! We can't walk if we wore them . My shoe soles are only
between one to .75 inches . That's what makes me comfortable and is what I
always wear except on one occasion . And that was with this 7' 4.5" tall giant
I had worn boots with 1.25 inches . They made me soooooooo unbareble .
Answering your question as to why I look as tall as David here , I think
my good friend David may have stated either his morning height or his
height with shoes . He could be 5' 9 " without shoes .and my friend ROB ,
as of right now I am not in the United States . And I do not have a medical
card of the country I am in right now . I will have to wait another 4 months
untill I get back to my Gym where they have a height measuring scale to do
my measurements on different times as you have asked me to do ! I am sorry
for the inconvinience !
[Editor Rob: it's no problem, a strong 5ft 8 you can be called in until you get back to states.]
said on 10/Aug/08
Rob, why is Mamun listed 5'8.25" up there? thought he was 5'8"...
Mamun, why do you look as tall as david arguette in your photo?! What about footwear?
[Editor Rob: because Mamun done another measurement a few weeks back at that, I asked him to do a couple more on different days and then he will be certain 5ft 8.25.]
Mamun said on 10/Aug/08
Thank you Clay for your kind comments !
Brad said on 9/Aug/08
If you knew about Glenn off the site, you wouldn't be saying "respect", trust me.
Clay said on 9/Aug/08
My good friend Mamun you look very large in this photo. Your forearms are huge good job man.
xaoxio said on 9/Aug/08
Rob, bring Glenn back!
ACG said on 9/Aug/08
"Seeing all these pictures of legit 5'8"ers like Rob and Mamun with people that Glenn posed with really makes me question his 5'8". It can probably explained by the fact that Glenn clearly stated that he was only 5'8" in the morning while Rob and Mamun both use their afternoon heights. That's perfectly fine except... whenever some would happen to casually mention that he was shorter at night, Glenn would fly into a rage. I can seriously recall him claiming that he didn't shrink a milimeter from the out to bed until in to bed the next night. >.>"
PU-LEASE!!! Everything you just stated is the opposite of the truth. First off, I once curiously asked glenn here if any of the heights may be off because of his nocturnal schedule(i.e. shrinking at times when others don't and vice versa), and he was completely reasonable and civilized in his response. It's the way you bring it up....if your going to get on his case(or anyone's for that matter) you can expect a less than pleasant response. If you give a person respect, they'll respect you back- pretty simple, no? Glenn got annoyed sometimes because people didn't respect him- as he had every right to.
And that recollection of yours saying that glenn claimed he never shrunk during the day is beyond preposterous. He openely stated on numerous occasions to being 5'7ish during his low point of the day and hitting 5'8 as his peak height- just like all legit 5'8ers, which he was.
And can we seriously stop talking about how tall glenn was or wasn't??
Mamun said on 8/Aug/08
Thank you miko ! I am truely working on that !
trueheight said on 7/Aug/08
if he were to stand up straight, I fail to see how he would be more than 1in taller than Mamum. Plus Arquette is a bit closer to the camera
Clay said on 7/Aug/08
He actually does look barely over 5'8'' in this shot.
miko said on 7/Aug/08
Mamun, if you keep weightlifing, you could soon be 6"0 tall!
Viper said on 7/Aug/08
He's hardly slouching. The top of Mamum's head is higher and David is even closer to the camera.
Ronaldo said on 6/Aug/08
David is slouching big time in the pic. He's around 1m77 or 1m78 tho
Mamun said on 6/Aug/08
Your wellcome Brad!
Brad said on 6/Aug/08
More evidence Glenn's height was 5' 7". Thanks Mamun, we get an accurate height now.
rhino said on 6/Aug/08
Jlee said on 5/Aug/08
no he could be five ten because his head is kind of going downwards
Bad Radio said on 5/Aug/08
looks 5'9 in that pic
Viper said on 5/Aug/08
Arquette doesnt even look 5-9 here. You could argue hes shorter than Mamun.
xyzblast said on 5/Aug/08
I dont mean to be offensive, but is it me or does he look a lot like his wife Courtney?
Anonymous said on 5/Aug/08
No disrespect, but it also probably explains why he consistently saw everyone at an inch taller than they really were. ie Stallone at 5'10, Colin Farrel at 5'11, Clooney at 5'11-5'11.5, Willis at 6'+, etc.
Clay said on 5/Aug/08
5'9 and change.

Lmeister said on 5/Aug/08
In this pic he looks shorter than 5ft10 maybe 5ft9 and a bit.
Viper said on 5/Aug/08
Whoa, Mamum looks taller for some reason. He had at least 2 inches on Glenn.
glenn said on 29/Apr/08
did you not notice he is bent over a bit.and i wore thicker shoes then.5-10ish.5-11 possible.if he stood military posture next me i dont think 5-11 is impossible.
GSP said on 29/Apr/08
Gleen said "he looked 5-10.but this photo says 5-11 easy."
?? What?? The photo does not look anywhere near 5'11. Heck im 5'9.5 morning height and I look shorter than that next to a legit strong 5'11 guy lol.
Peetie said on 30/Dec/07
Thomas Jane is much taller than him , I think David's height's 5'9.5''.
Bombay Rocker said on 2/Sep/07
Max 5 feet 9.5....5 feet 10 is generous.
Anonymous said on 2/Aug/07
I'd say 5'10.5". He seems a little taller than average, but not by much.
Viper said on 30/Apr/07
He sure looks tall for just 5-9 1/2. I would have guessed 6-0 If I didnt know better throughout his career.
Pete said on 30/Apr/07
5'9.5'' right , he's 2-4 cm. taller than Glenn (no more than 4 cm. taller). He's tall same as Charlize Theron ( forgive me, If I spell wrong ). And he's clear shorter than Thomas Jane , then I think he's around 5'9''-5'10''.
Ps. Glenn!! is real David Arquette cute? I think in 'RPM' and that picture David looks handsome. Cool!!
dmeyer said on 15/Jan/07
no more than 5'10 to me
sf said on 26/Dec/06
"Arquette confuses me. At one time, I wouldn't have said over 5'9"; other times he does look 5'11" or so. maybe it's something in his build.
Viper said on 26/Dec/06
He normally looks 5-11 easy to me. Strange. Hell, he can pass off as a guy over 6-0 in certain movies and shows Ive seen him in.
MD said on 25/Dec/06
Yeah, nothing more than 5'10", especially considering he's always been slightly shorter than Jay Leno whenever he's been on his show, and I'm pretty sure Jay's around 5'10.5" barefoot.
Glenn said on 24/Dec/06
No bigger than 5-10.weird pose,angle,thats all.
dmeyer said on 12/Feb/06
in that pics he looks 5'9.5"
dmeyer said on 12/Feb/06
in friends he strugles to be kudrow's height 5'10 is possible
Glenn said on 26/Jan/06
he seemed 5-10.
Anonymous said on 25/Jan/06
no way a 5´11 from the pic with Glenn, 5´10 seems to me more acuratte, maybe 5´10.5 but not a solid 5´11
Glenn said on 23/Jan/06
he looked 5-10.but this photo says 5-11 easy.
CelebHeights Editor said on 23/Aug/05
From jamesbond newsgroup: "I met David Arquette and he was MUCH taller than I expected....was actually taller than I...damn him. I'm 5'11"
