How tall was Fred Astaire

Fred Astaire's Height

5ft 9 (175.3 cm)

American actor and dancer, best remembered for roles in films such as Top Hat, Holiday Inn, Funny Face, Swing Time, The Gay Divorcee, Royal Wedding, The Band Wagon, Daddy Long Legs, The Notorious Landlady and Easter Parade. In 'Tv guide, the first 25 years' he is quoted saying "I'm 5 feet 10".
I asked [Rita Hayworth] how tall she was as I stood alongside her. This was always an important item to me because if the lady happened to be about 5 feet 7 inches minus shoes and came up to the set with three-inch heels, she'd be just a bit above my 5 feet 9 ½ inches. As we stood there, both in flat heels, I was easily three inches taller, and I told her I hoped she didn't' wear very high heels with me. She said quietly that she didn't think she had to.
