How tall is David Duchovny

David Duchovny's Height

6ft ⅛ in (183.2 cm)

American Actor best known for playing Fox Mulder on TV series The X-Files and Hank Moody on Californication. He once said "Gillian is 5-foot 2, I'm 6-foot" and also that he was maybe a little taller than 6ft. In this photo I had 1in Sneakers, David about 0.75in.

[I'm] a little bit taller than a whale's penis....In Moby Dick, Melville describes in great detail how a whale is being gutted and in this context he mentions that the size of a whale's penis is 1.80 meters. I'm 1.83 meters tall.

Brad Pitt is struggling with if he's 5'11ish lol

Cbrady, Hunnam had a footwear advantage and Duchovny being Middle Aged probably has shrunk a little bit
C Brady said on 12/Aug/20
slim, you have been on charlie hunnam's case for being 5-11 3/4 but doesnt Duchovny look a bit shorter with Rob than Charlie did?
Slim 6'1" said on 9/Aug/20
actually 183cm
Slim 6'1" said on 8/Aug/20
i would say give the 183.5 upgrade, hes solid 6' unlike 182.5 hunnam.

183 witch a chance of 183.5, lovely
Hulk23 said on 25/Jul/20
When he played Fox Molder in X-files series he did look a strong 6โ€™/183cm guy. Today he might have lost a small fraction. Maybe 5โ€™11.75/182cm is the fairest listing for his current height but a true six footer as peak height is my first choice
Newgun said on 19/Jul/20
Hi rob. I'm curious about how could "6ft and 1/8" be 184cm? isn't this just 183cm?
Editor Rob
Well it's at the top of the page 183.2cm. Normally you'd round that to 183, but sometimes rounding upwards could happen.
Jam Cherry said on 18/Jun/20
183-183.5 cm seems well over 6 foot mark
Greg said on 12/Jun/20
@Rent Weak 6โ€™0 if 5โ€™11.5 is an extreme low but youโ€™re closer to 6โ€™0 for most of the day.
Rent said on 17/May/20
He looks strinkingly tall in The X-Files, maybe due to a generally short cast.
Rob, at 5ft11.5 late in the night, whatโ€™s my legit height? Weak zone of 6ft range?
pjk said on 14/May/20
Looks to be 5'11" with rob.
Jld010 said on 11/May/20
He was easily taller than Sean William Scott in "Evolution"and Brad Pitt in "Kalifornia". Definately 184cm peak. Sidenote: Out of bed..I'm 187cm..at night 184cm..I slouch. So I take my height as 186cm? How does it work
Aidan strong 5'10 said on 16/Apr/20
a lot of guys his height will say 6โ€™1, especially if they were measured early in the day
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Mar/20
Still a good chance he could hit 6ft now if measured. Somewhere in 183.5-184cm range when he was younger is quite likely. But did get edged out by Mitch Pileggi who I think was a solid 6ft1 in the X-File days
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Feb/20
@ mark thompson - Now there's a thought! Why ever should it be the case that all whales have the same size endowments? Humans don't, and it's doubtful that any animal does! ๐Ÿณ

David can have 6ft and an eighth.
Tony Vines said on 15/Feb/20
Saw him at an event about 3 years ago...he's definitely slightly taller than me (179 cm). I'd say Rob's guess is spot on.
mark thompson said on 12/Feb/20
damn i'm a little under a whale's penis at 1.79m
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/Jan/20
@ Hypado - It sure is, of both fellas!

Six foot and an eighth. ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“+1/8th
Hypado said on 26/Jan/20
A stronger 6ft today. Great photo.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jan/20
@ Johan 185cm - I would have thought that David's head fits the rest of him. He'd look incredibly soppy with a smaller one! ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’

Cheers Johan! BTW, are you Dutch? ๐Ÿค”
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Jan/20
Yes, Chris, he always seemed on the taller side of tall to me too!
Johan 185 cm said on 24/Jan/20
Has a big old head. I would have guessed 5'11.5" from this pic. Not under 6' peak so maybe a 1/4-1/2 inch loss. Although I see Rob thinks minimum 5'11.75" from seeing him.

I will go with 5'11 5/8s since thats an option.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Jan/20
182.5-.6cm today is possible. 5'11.75" ( 182.2cm ) seem abit low. 6'0 1/4 for David peak higher chance than only 6'0 1/8.
Bradley said on 21/Jan/20
Gillian at 5-2.....they must have had her on box with DD. Missing limbs the picture.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jan/20
(Make that 6ft and an eighth!)
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jan/20
I watched an 'X' File this morning at 4 o'clock on Paramount Network. It was from Season One and called 'Fire'. Fox Mulder was approached by an old flame from his University days in England, played by Amanda Pays, 5ft6. She must have been in high heels because she looked much taller than a visibly jealous Scully and almost as tall as Mulder, played, of course, by David. Consequently, I thought Amanda Pays was quite a bit taller!

David gets 6ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/20
He could be a shade under 6ft at worst now but no way just 5ft11. I think he'd measure similar to someone like Jenson Ackles today but peak would've edged him by 1cm or so
Nik said on 20/Jan/20
@ Rob - What's the lowest you would go?
Editor Rob
5ft 11.75 would be lowest today I'd estimate.
Greg said on 20/Jan/20
@Rob do you think that guy from the convention might be between 5โ€™11.5-5โ€™11.75? Or more 5โ€™11.25-5โ€™11.5?
Editor Rob
5ft 11.5 looked more his range last time I saw him.
SE said on 19/Jan/20
Hi Rob, how many mmโ€™s does the insoles of the shoes shrink when you wore the shoes for a year?
Editor Rob
It can vary. Some already start out quite thin and so won't lose much, others might be 5-6mm thick to start with and lose 4mm of that after months of wear.
Andrea said on 19/Jan/20
"Editor Rob
I remember seeing him at a con in December and I'd have guessed a bit shy of 6ft."
So over 5'11 indeed, I assume? Are you sure about that? I don't know if he's the kind of guy who sometimes wears low shoes like converse at those events, but having another look at him, he can actually look barely 5'11 in more than one photo...
Editor Rob
Yeah I'd have guessed him over 5ft 11 flat.
Dmeyer said on 19/Jan/20
So rob you Guess him 183.2cm Peak and 5'11.75 now like 182-182.2cm so a good 1cm loss wich is normal at near 60 , he looks great better than me a 37 ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ , if he was 182.5cm you would have guessed him 6ft today so i Guess he apeared 5.11.5 since he had .25in less shoes , very likely was never more than legit 183.0cm tall
Editor Rob
Today I think 1/4 inch loss is likely so a little under 6ft. Out of bed he probably is still 184 range.
Nik said on 18/Jan/20
@ Rob - Where would you come up to on him if you both have equal posture and the same level of footwear?
Editor Rob
Well, possibly 1/4 to 1/2 lower than the photo. I do think his eyelevel is a bit lower than average though.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jan/20
@ Rob - Well, there you go! You need to have good observation skills to write on Celebheights!

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Jan/20
Rob, I always feel that David Duchovny is 6'0 1/4 peak and flat 6'0 now. Not sure the 1/8th doing him any help.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jan/20
@ Rob - Now that's what I call a reply!

I, too, am a massive fan of the 'X' Files and have them in the form of a boxset, including the movies.

I don't think that David is by any means out to pretend he's taller, like many stars. Having read both 6ft and 6ft1 for him in the 90s, I thought that he'd be somewhere between the two measurements, but if he teeters below 6ft at his lowest time of the day, it doesn't take away from the fact that he's still a tall gentleman.

I had no idea how long it takes to make a video myself. I can relate to the need for perfecting it, (editing), but then there's the time it takes in preparation, filming etc. that seems to be swept under the carpet to the average viewer, and I was certainly one of them, if the truth be told! ๐Ÿค”

PS I have never seen you in a bad photograph, so Jenny does have a point there! My brother even remarked that you are are good-looking guy, and he rarely does that! ๐Ÿ˜
Editor Rob
Your brother sounds like a man with good observation and taste, much like Jenny and yourself ๐Ÿ‘
rkf said on 18/Jan/20
nice pic of a real 6ft, he's a pretty big star
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jan/20
I like to give you 'likes', as I'm sure so does everyone else. By making us these videos, it goes to show how devoted you are to the CH community. We benefit from the height ones, which is a particular asset to the younger Celebheights members, and even to people of my age. Then there are special ones about Celebrities, and I'm the proof that admiration for them never fades!

Is it surprising that I've never looked elsewhere for my online entertainment?

As I've said before, I wish a service like this had been around when my brother was a youngster, very small and hating it. He'd have felt a whole lot less alone if he'd had the support you offer the young people of today. All the Best, Rob and I wish you and Jenny a very happy weekend. Sandy XX ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’
Editor Rob
I feel it's easier making a voice-over style video than having face on camera and interspersing other media. However, I think Youtube prefers to see a presence in videos and I actually feel more comfortable talking to a camera, rather than recording into a microphone.

Most creators underestimate the time required to make a video.

I do keep track of how long it takes, because it is a reminder that if I ever want to do something in the vein of 4-5 minutes like Cruise/Stallone/Diesel, then I'll need more than the 1-2 hours it requires for a sneaker video...I'll know that from blank page to publishing, I'd need to devote 7-8 hours ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Of course half of that is spent editing and looking at myself...I'm sure glad I'm handsome* ๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyway, as a big fan of 90's X-Files, it was great to finally meet David up close in July 2018. I think he was one of the more honest actors with regards to height as many in that era would have guessed him near 6ft 1. Nowadays I feel he likely has lost a little fraction and could be a little under Six foot. Interestingly he had an Uncle in my home town (East Kilbride) and as a youngster did sometimes spend summer holidays here!

Hey Rob! I watched your David Duchovy video the other day and I really enjoyed it. It would seem that I'm not the only one; nobody had given it the thumbs down!

sorry sandy cowell but I think that just proves pitt is far from 5'11 without his lifts.
Nik Ashton said on 16/Jan/20
May๐Ÿ he has more tilt than Rob!
berta said on 16/Jan/20
he is 60 years in a couple of month. i Think that most people in that age ( even if they are in very good shape like him) have lost about 0,5 cm. i Think he Went from 183,5 down to 183 flat. Looking at this photo i would have thought maybe 180 cm but we all know he is taller than that.
Andrea said on 16/Jan/20
How tall would you guess that guy is in person? I remember coming across his profile sometime ago and thinking he could maybe have been 5'11-6', but certainly not as tall as his 6' claim... though he seems to have the edge on David in both the pics with him!
Editor Rob
I remember seeing him at a con in December and I'd have guessed a bit shy of 6ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/20
Yeah he's probably at 6ft flat today. The photo above doesn't give a good representation of his height though. He's slouching and has slightly less shoe than Rob.


Prime range was 183.5-184cm at his low, very strong 6ft dude. Could look 6ft0ยฝ a lot and even a weak 6ft1 on X-Files.
Editor Rob
I rarely put 1/4 inch peak/current difference, but David is a likely candidate to go from strong 6ft to a little under 6ft. Yeah he's not standing tall, but I am not standing like 5ft 8, I know I'm dropping posture as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

In person that weekend I think most folk (myself included) would struggle to pick apart Duchovny/Eccleston/Capaldi/Hempstead Wright, all could look very similar range, within a fraction of each other. However, since David did have a 1/4 less sneaker than the others, he might measure a bit taller.

Here's another blogger With Duchovny. I believe he too has a fraction thicker sneaker, he also has an instagram which if you scroll through you'll find a few other celeb photos. He claimed six foot btw. I wouldn't have guessed he was as tall as big alex in person though.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 15/Jan/20
He is 60 this year. He may be shrinking a bit he certainly doesn't have 4 inches on rob here
Jordan87 said on 15/Jan/20
I'm Not sure he is even over 5'11.5 with Rob.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Jan/20
David is tilting inwardly. I find it difficult to digest that he could be below 6ft. That makes me feel the urge to watch the film 'Kalifornia', so that I can compare him to Brad Pitt in the early 90s. That's the one movie which actually gives out a description of Brad, a sociopath, and he is 5ft11. David is MORE than a mere one inch taller than Brad, and there are simply loads of comparison opportunities. I strongly recommend this underrated film. I've shown it to many of my friends - including my Dad! - and they all thought it was great.

It covers the serious subject of the study of psycho killers, which is of interest to David's character, but the movie isn't without humour, which I find to be such a necessary ingredient in a film like that.

At the age of 59, a physically fit man isn't anywhere near as likely to have lost as much height as a woman; men aren't as prone to osteoporosis. I can credit that David's lost a little bit of height, but he didn't look below 6ft in the recent reintroduction of the 'X' Files in 2016.
Nik Ashton said on 14/Jan/20
It is a real possibility that he is under 6โ€™0โ€!
Progking said on 14/Jan/20
He's my height twin lol, looks 5'11 here but he is an easy 6'0, sometimes appearing 6'0.5
Chris brady said on 14/Jan/20
whoa you got duchovny! nice get Rob. What was dave's eye level if standing straight because his forehead looks long? Would it be exactly 171 cm?
Editor Rob
He does have a lower eyelevel I think, a decent head size in person so if 183cm 'peak' (he probably is a small fraction less now) than 170-171 range eyelevel.
Andrea said on 14/Jan/20
Do you think he has shrunk a bit or what, Rob?
Even taking his thinner footwear into account, I certainly struggle to see him over 5'11.5 with you...
Editor Rob
At 57...a chance of a small fraction. I do think Duchovny is probably not a strong 6ft today, but still not really much under it.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Jan/20
Rob finally get a picture with David. Look 5'11 with Rob in picture, 5'11 1/4 max as 1/4 less footwear than Rob. 6'0 in person maybe not hard to believe it.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jan/20
How FANTASTIC, Rob! I had no idea that you'd met David as well as Gillian and I've come over all unnecessary! ๐Ÿ™ƒ I think I'm going to need a lie down, or at least a strong cup of tea! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Right, so tea it is then! ๐Ÿต๐Ÿ˜‹

I agree with all that but that's not what I'm talking about.

why? you are another one of those guys who think that being average is measuring 6โ€™7?
Dude, thatโ€™s just dumb i mean a guy who is 6 feet is tall in the entire world, obviously itโ€™s not a giant but itโ€™s tall and heโ€™s right average itโ€™s being 5โ€™8 minimum- 5โ€™11 max if you look on the street most of the people itโ€™s that range!

It's amazing to think that the 'X' Files' David Duchovny turns 59 today! The show is still as new, fresh and original as it ever was. Also worth seeing is David's film 'Kalifornia', in which he stars with Brad Pitt as a guy interested in serial killers. It turns out that there is one a lot closer to him than he thinks....

David gets a Birthday guess of six foot and an eighth.

He claimed 183 cm and 1/8 over 6 is above 183. 6'0 is his real height. Noone downgrade his height 3 mm. Maybe sounds stupid but people tent to upgrade. If hes ays 183 that's the absolute max I would buy Rob.
Chris Johnson said on 20/Aug/18
Met him in 2005. Iโ€™m 5โ€™10โ€™โ€™. He looked my height or maybe half an inch taller.
Gracian said on 9/Aug/18
Rob, why did you give him a 1/8 inch downgrade? A quarter inch over 6 feet as his peak height seemed to be fine for him. Besides, I remember that you said that he and Travolta could be the same height. Please, Rob, answer me.
Editor Rob
a 'little over' suits 1/8th inches.

@ Elm - Well, you have certainly cheered me up! I must be very very small then!

@ Elm - 6ft short? That has to be one of the most ridiculous things I've heard in my life! But you WERE jesting, weren't you?

David, this time round, can have 6ft0.5.

I don't see how he'd be above doing it. They did a reboot of the show this year. You've met all his co-stars. I'm sure it's scheduling difficulties that have prevented him from coming over.

He was definitely about a couple of inches taller than me (I'm 5'10.5) when I met him. We were both wearing shoes with heels though.
Kaneff 6'0.25" said on 26/Apr/17
6'0.25" is fine for Duchovny. He just doesn't look as tall as somebody like Ronaldo or Obama who are legit 6'1ers
RisingForce said on 16/Apr/17
I actually think he can look as tall as 6'1" at times, but if he had just said 6 feet as well as the maybe a little taller quote, I wouldn't doubt he was over, but I fact he gave a metric height makes me wonder if he's only 183? I suppose it's also possible he just converted 6 feet to see what it was in metric, or because 6'0.25" is really more like 183.5, maybe he just thinks of that as being 183.
Ed Kline said on 9/Apr/17
If you think that Duchovny isn't pushing 6'1, (even at this age) check out pics of him with 5'11.75 Ty Burrel. He's got a solid inch on him.
Ed Kline said on 8/Mar/17
One of the very few guys I think who might underestimate his peak height.Not necessarily on purpose.To wit :
Like most shorter guys I stand as tall as I can with impeccable posture to attain my height of barely scraping 175 cm midday (the slightest bit under 5'9). Guys like Duchovny don't do that. They might perk up a little bit when being measured, but they don't always max out. When I try to imitate the posture of a man who stands slightly straighter but doesn't really care, I stand about 5'8.5, and for practical purposes that maybe should really be the height I claim. There are probably plenty of men and women who are the exact same height as I, that think they're 5'8.5, and not as close to 5'9 as they would be if they stood differently. Most people don't stand like I do when being measured. My kids sure don't. I'm a height freak, like so many of us here and I take it seriously. Anyway, that's about a 3/8 of an inch difference for me based on posture. A guy like Duchovny could easily be 6'0.5 or very close to 6'1 if he tried his hardest to stand as straight and tall as he could when he was 30.
A potential example of this possible dichotomy is Vince Vaughn and Michael Strahan. Vaughn claims 6'5, and when he was younger he looked like it could definitely be true. Strahan claims a bit less, but seems ever so slightly taller than Vaughn. Is the difference simply that Vaughn tried harder to stand tall at his peak height, and Strahan just typically stood a bit straighter than normal( never truly attaining his max), and then he has shrunk slightly less because not everyone shrinks in the exact same way or pace?
We see so many arguments on here about very small gradations in height with people constantly claiming that one picture or another is authoritatively damning.
I have a niece who is the same height as her best friend. They are both 5'7.25 when they stand up straight, but my niece has lordosis and has a huge amount of play in her spine. When they are standing relaxed, she seems nearly two inches shorter. That's a severe example, but some people simply have more play between their relaxed height and standing straight and tall height than others.
Me, during her mid-day, its 5'8 relaxed, 5'8.5 standing typically straight but not trying hard, and 5'8 3/4-/7/8 when I try my hardest with a morning height record of 5'9.25, and a long day late night record low of 5'8.5, and at 49 years old I seemingly haven't shrunk a millimeter. I bet plenty of you have even more or maybe less play in your height than that. Remember this when you're arguing.

Some good comparisons there. Another good one to add to the californication comparison is Callum Keith Rennie who is listed here as 5'10.5" and who looked a very similar height to Duchovny throughout the show, maybe a touch shorter ( 1-2 cm ? )

I think he was probably around 6ft when younger and Rampage is right people do underestimate how tall a measured exact 6ft is as many men who are close to it say 6ft ( 5'10 - 5'11.75" range ). I am exactly 6 ft midday and female friends often say i'm quite tall but i certainly don't think i am. An inch or 2 above average is all nowadays in UK. Proportions count too. Two of my friends with slender frames and long legs look much taller than me, like genuinely tall, but when i went back to back with them i was exact same height as one of them and 0.5 cm shorter than the other. When i checked the top of their hips they were both 2 full inches above mine, i.e. legs 2" longer so i have a long body. There are some huge dude walking around these days. Giants rock !

I always believed this guy was a strong 5'11 rather than a full 6 feet. In Californication next to 5'10 Rob Lowe he looks about 1-1.5 inches taller. His character wears mostly Timberland boots throughout the show. Here he is with Rob Lowe's character Eddie Nero looking about 1-1.5 inches taller.

And another picture with Kevin Corrigan, who is not listed on this website but IMDB has him a 5'9 which could be underestimating him.

Click Here

In the show the mother of his daughter played by Natascha McElhone (listed here at 5'8) often wears large heels but looks very close to his height consistently.

In Duchovny's defense he was around his fifties during the filming of Californication so maybe he lost a bit of height. But I dont see 6 feet here. Honestly I'm a little surprised to see him listed this height. My guess is probably 5'11-5'11.75 range.
Importer said on 25/Jan/17
Yea people get mistaken and think about 6ft guys that are actually 5'10-5'11 and claim 6ft. At the very least, it's not out of the ordinary to claim any height unless you are more than 0.5 inch shorter than it. It's surprising cause when a 6'3.5" guy claims 6'4 people don't make a big deal out of it but the most common I've seen in this site is where 5'11.5" guys claim 6ft and a lot of honest 5'11.5" guys lose their bagoogle, which is understandable somehow...
5ft club

6ft club
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/17
Well, he claimed 6ft and just over 6ft so you can't really argue with this listing. I guess most underestimate how tall a real 6ft guy is
Dmeyer said on 16/Jan/17
Even thaugh he looked 184-5cm in person if hรฉ claimed 6 FT then 184-5cm was possible since it IS easier to Say 6 FT than 6 FT 0,5 or 0,75 , but since je said 183cm then probably max 183,2-183,5cm if not he would have said 184cm
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Jan/17
I think I'm going to burst asunder with excitement!
For those of you who get 'Spike' TV, it seems as though they've decided to start showing the 'X' Files right from the beginning again, starting on Sunday at 11pm with the pilot!
David really does look super-tall at that stage of his career! I'd go for 6ft1. Also, he looked a good 2 inches taller than Brad Pitt in the film 'Kalifornia' I might add! That film hails from the early 90's!

But then there's the possibility that he was more a solid 184cm guy he may still measure around this mark
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Nov/16
Rob, could he be more 183cm today?




Definitely a very strong 6fter in The X-Files
Editor Rob: Rampage, today, a 1/4 inch lost isn't outwith the realms of possibilities. Duchovny is in 50's now, an age many men can drop their first fraction. It can be traumatic, even for ladies discovering they have shrunk.
Arthur said on 25/Oct/16
Guy claims in metric he is 1.83 m. So no point listing him 6'0.25, he is probably 6'0 1/8 just like Rob is 5'8 1/8, who doesn't like to call himself 5'8.25, so I don't see why this chap should be given the extra quarter. 6 foot, or 183 cm for him is good enough.
Editor Rob: that's what he could mean, a 1/8th inch over, right around that 183 or a little over.
HonestSlovene said on 9/Oct/16
Would have guessed an exact 6'0, 6'0.25 could work too yes.

according to celebheights, there is a 5cm difference between David and Callum Keith Rennie, although in californication they look exactly the same height almost all of the time. and there are scenes when you know they have no footwear or it's equal. Rob, what do you think of that? I can upload a screenshot if needed.

I agree Les, David and callum look very similar if not exact same height in Californication.

I still think he was 183 when younger, so maybe callum is a little taller than stated.

What you think rob ?

It must just be his slender frame, he always looked really tall, 6'3" to me on xfiles. Gillians just tiny.

Rob, I'm one of the biggest x files fans. I have seen this saw 5-6 times over the course of years. But David isn't 184 cm. He is no taller than 182 cm. There are hundred of scene between him and Mitch Pileggi, who is 184 cm tall, and David looks about 2 cm shorter in all of them. Both of them having the same footwear and good posture. Also there are a lot of scenes and episodes with Nicholas lea(185 cm) and David and you will see that Lea is with at least 3 cm taller than david in every scene. So I don't know why is David listed so high. There is no way he is taller than 182 cm.

i am a great fan too of x-files series and actually i think 6'0" is the lower height that someone could give to Duchovny, 6'0.25" it's fine too.
in a lot of scenes he looked as tall as Nicholas Lea (who personally i guess is 6'0.5" and not a full 6'1), is less than 1" shorter than Pillegi, who is listed at peak 6'1" there and had no more than 2" less than William B Davis, who at times was probably 6'2" or very close to it.

I think Duchovny is a strong 6'0" guy, precisely like Alex: 6'1-0.75" just woke up and 6'0.25-00" in the evening! 6'0.25" is fair for him, trust me!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/15
You don't need to add this because it's not a memorable part but he appears very briefly in Working Girl as an extra in the birthday party scene. Standing behind Alec Baldwin he easily looks 1in or more taller.

I think he was nearer 6ft1 peak

If sean william scott is listed 5 ft 11.25 then duchovny has to minimum 6ft 0.75 in because he has easily 1.5 inches (if not slighty more) of adventage on sean, both wearing similar footwear.

Kal said on 4/Sep/12
Duchovny never really hit the six foot mark. The picture Vic posted is further proof of that. Next to Gallagher, he's only an inch taller and is leaning a little, so I put him at 5'10.5" probably 5'11.5" in his youth. Another sign of his real height, can be witnessed on the show Californiacation, in the 4th season, during the scene when he is about to leave for his trial and he's talking to Karen in the bathroom doorway. There is a shot where the camera comes back and the full doorway is in frame. Duchovny is considerably shorter than the doorframe. 5'10.5" watch that scene and think about changing it Rob.
Vic said on 1/Sep/12
Rob, I know photographs can be very deceptive but I'd be curious to have your opinion concerning this one:
Click Here
It seems both actors stand at the same distance from the camera and wear comparable footwears, postures alike and despite the slight tilt, it seems quite a good picture to get a rough idea of how tall Duchovny is, probably 3 inches taller than Peter Gallagher, so 6ft?
[Editor Rob: maybe a little difference on grass, can always add/take a cm but I think Duchovny when he did come out and say 6 foot or a little bit over is pretty much saying what he measured at.]
Maximus Meridius said on 28/Aug/12

There is a good point that David (aka Molder) is 6 ft. I mean, what kind of guy would downgrade his own height? If he says he's 6ft, then the most reasonable thing to suppose is that he isn't any taller. There is also a good point that he is not likely any shorter that 6 ft. That height seems pretty accurate.
Todd said on 6/Feb/12
Duchovny was on several episodes of "The Larry Sanders Show." In each one there are shots of him standing next to Garry Shandling (listed on this site at 5ft 10.5in). Duchovny looks no more than an inch taller than Shandler, so I have a hard time believing he's 6.25ft.

Yeh, I probably change my mind on Duchovny. If he is as precise as to claim '1.83 m' as his height, then him being over that mark is improbable. At the start of the day he is very likely 184 cm though.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 5/Jan/12
After watching him in The X-Files and Californication I thought this guy was at least 184 and possibly even 185, but just now I read the comments below and he looks 182 MAX next to Lopez... He's definitely shorter than 184-185.

I could just buy his 183 claim though, but that's really the absolute MAX he could possibly be.

I've posted this about a billion times over the last couple days, but George Lopez is the perfect measuring poll as he looked his listed height next to Mike Tyson, Tom Felton and Peter Facinelli.

Duchovny actually looks under 6' here. Which calls Pitt's height even more into question, as he looked like a shrimp next to him in Kalifornia.

If he specifically states "I'm 1.83 m" then I believe he is no more than a solid 6ft 0in.
frog said on 29/Aug/11
in your opinion Rob, is he over 6ft ? have you met him in person?

Never looked over 6 feet to me.
Shaun said on 13/Aug/11
Does look more 6'1" doesn't he. To me he looks the exact same height as David Schimmer 184-185 range possible then. But the fact he only claims 1 inch taller than Pitt is a joke. Nearer 3 inches on Pitt. If he measured 6' it must be a barefoot relaxed posture measurement as in good clumpy shoes and posture like Schwimmer at times he can look 6'2".

I found some cool video. David Duchovny on Conan O'brien show. David looks not that much shorter. That's for sure not 4 inches, not even full 3.

That's to show how tall is and looks a legit 6'0, he's one of these 6 footers who can look very tall. 184 min.
JB said on 18/Jul/11
I knew him in college, he's 6'0"
Godred said on 10/Jul/11
He occasionally looks 6`1 or 6`2 to some people because this is what a real 6 ft tall guy looks like, i.e. tall.Most claiming 6 ft aren`t.
Niaphyla said on 26/Jun/11
Ok, I came looking for his height because of a scene in Season 2 Ep 9 Firewalker, it shows Duchovny and Anderson beside each other. The only thing that I'm failing to see when people are saying he's either 6' or 6'3"... is his shoe choice at the time. Men's shoes vary widely on the heels, from almost nothing to around 2", with some even going up to 4". His height medically, of course, is without shoes. While he may be rounding down... if he says 6', I'm going to go with that.

Any m'en between 5 ft 11.5 to 6 ft 0.5 might just say 6 ft
The Horse of FUNK said on 16/Jun/11
A smidgen over 6'0". Not everyone rounds up, some people round down for whatever reason, be it modesty or simply saying "6-foot" is easier to say.
Viper said on 15/Jun/11
Just your usual 6-0 guy that looks 6-1-6-2 to people.
dmeyer said on 14/Jun/11
he looks 184 185 in person but claims 6 ft and says 183cm then he might be hust 6 ft or 6 ft 1/8 183cm if he just said 6 ft he could be taller like if he is 6 ft 0.5 0.75 and just say 6 ft thats fine but whi say 183cm while he could say 184 or 185 without looking stupid , i guess you list him 6 ft 0.25 wish is 183.5cm its possible he rounds down 0.5 cm
Dmeyer said on 13/Jun/11
I saw this Guy thรฉ flore wasnt perfect hรฉ gave 6 ft 1 impression
CJS said on 12/Jun/11
I've met him and he's definately 6ft to 6ft 1". And he's HOT!!!!!
Roozbeh said on 6/Jun/11
Hummm! Well I saw the X-files movie last night for third time I guess, The X-Files: Fight the Future, well I saw Terry O'Quinn 6 ft 1.75 in (187 cm) standing in front of Duchovny,I assume the height difference is more than 1.5 inches...
Chameleon said on 13/May/11
184cm max, same height as Jim Carrey.

Easy 6 footer, no more, no less
and an easy 2 inches taller than Pitt in Kalifornia (Pitt in big boots too), which makes me wonder bout Pitts height again :P

Pitt is 5-9
Viper said on 10/May/11
Just another 6-0 guy where people think hes 6-2, LOL

These same people think 6-0 is 6-2 in person. And there are a ton of them.
Bon_ said on 8/May/11
These 6'2 comments are crap. Why the hell would he downgrade himself 2 inches? The man knows his own height best.
PCDelicious said on 13/Apr/11
Many sightings and a chance to stand next to him while he was in our town fiming, The Jones. I'm 5'11".. he was easily 6'1", if not 6'2".
Chameleon said on 6/Apr/11
Yeah he also looked 184 to me.
dmeyer said on 5/Apr/11

Toby said on 1/Apr/11
Perfect height for a man.
Kevin said on 27/Mar/11
Walked past Duchovny on Fox lot, he's taller than me. I'm 6 flat. He also nodded hello and smiled, seemed very genuine. Best guess, 6' 2" and change.
Lester said on 20/Mar/11
He did a full body hug of Craig Ferguson on his show last night and looked *exactly* the same height. Craig always says he's 6'3", but likely 6'2". Perhaps David got in the habit of rounding down because of X-Files and super-short Gillian. 6 foot or even 6 1/4 seems way off. 6 ft 1 bare minimum.
Chameleon said on 11/Mar/11
Looks 184 in Californication if u ask me, legit 6' for sure.
Bon_ said on 25/Jan/11
I think he's perfectly honest about his height...that is probably his true evening height, no less, and probably not a fraction more either.
Goliath of Gath said on 21/Jan/11
Rob, Mr. Duchovny probably has more reason to be listed 6 ft 1 than Harrison Ford ever was at his peak.

I say swap 6 ft 0.25 and give that to Harrison Ford at his peak and give the 6 ft 1 to Duchovny-- although it's possible both men were exactly the same height at their primes.
Anonymous said on 24/Dec/10
David Duchovny is a tall man. He always looked like a solid 6'1 to me, although I doubt any actor would understate their height. Still 6' minimum today.

See that photo.Gillian Anderson is 169cm,David 184cm
I'm 184cm.I have nose on 13cm.David have 15cm.A thing he's 182cm.
----------------------------------------------------
She is 159cm unless you mean with her shoes on and in that case add the shoe height also to David. I think that 13 or 15cm from bottom of nose to top of head could well be wrong as my bottom of nose to top of head is more than both 13 or 15cm. I measured roughly 20cm(it was difficult to do as wasn't sure I was doing it right) but I have a long face. My girlfriend is 5ft2 and she was 15cm or 16cm to top of head.
He wears lifts said on 26/Apr/09
He and Matthew McCougnahey both often wear sizable lifts giving them 2 inches or more. He's about six foot, but I've seen him in boots that literally make him 6'3
Ian said on 5/Apr/09
No offence glenn but how do you get someones height down to the 6ft1 when they are joggin(bouncing up and down)?

If he says he's 6ft 183CM then I would tend to believe him.
glenn said on 23/Mar/09
cause he is.6ft max is bull.i see this guy all the time.he's 6-1 in the morning or close to it at least.i see him jogging in the morning.he's stating his lowest height.
Doug said on 23/Mar/09
I could have sworn this guy was 6'1" minimum.

He looks like a really strong 6footer could be 6ft1 in the morning.
