He looks strong 188 in a lot of photos with Steve Martin

A lot of times especially in Europe, 6ft2 is converted to 187cm, 189cm and even 190cm in brackets.

6ft2 on the dot peak for this guy I think is fair, today he's probably closer to 6ft1 but just ease past it if measured.
Gerald S said on 7/Jun/23
Rob, could Reno get 6’2” peak?

Below Reno is noticeably taller than 6’2” Samuel Labarthe, and the camera angle is favouring Labarthe. I know Labarthe’s posture is not as good as Reno’s there but I could not imagine Labarthe as taller than Reno. Reno is also towering over an aging Jean-Claude Brialy (once a 5’10” and change guy).

Rob, could Reno get an upgrade? See him with 6'1.5" Kevin Kline at around 50:50 below (both were more or less the same age). Reno was looking near an inch taller than Kline, posture differences aside! The 187cm claim also was probably made after Reno had already lost some height.

Rob, please add The Pink Panther and The Da Vinci Code to Reno's credits.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/23
Sinclair, I've wondered that myself. I think he was already in his 60's when he said that.

I wouldn't object to 6ft2(188cm) peak and 6ft1¼(186cm) today. I reckon he can still hold down a solid 6ft1
Gladstone Screwer said on 11/Nov/22
Absolutely top actor, speaks very good English. I’m a big fan of Jean, probably still near 6’1” at 74.
Scotty Council said on 13/Sep/22
I think Jean Reno is more like 6'3" and Steve Martin is 6'0" Tall

I am 5'10"

And my Friend Liam is 6'0"
Sinclair said on 23/Jun/22
Rob, the 187cm claim could very well have been made after Reno had already lost a bit of height?

A good 6'2" once upon a time, in my opinion.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/22
Looked at least 6ft2 in Leon, more like 6ft2½
Rapha said on 8/Apr/22
Hi Rob

He is listed on couple of websites at 190 cm or even 191 cm.
Do you think he was ever that tall ( including out of bed height ) ?
Editor Rob
189-90 out of bed? Yes there is a chance of that.
Alonele said on 5/Dec/21
It's wrong, average in France 178cm, average in UK and US ≈ 178, so it's similar
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/21
Could give a 6ft3 impression on screen....really this guy in France is the height equivalent of a Neeson or a Goldblum...same for Vincent Cassel
Almost 180cm guy said on 26/Sep/21
I think Reno was definitely not under 187 cm, but today he can be only 6ft 1. Here are some of his photos with Patricia Velasquez from 1996: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Rob, don't you think Reno might have looked more like 188 cm next to her?
Editor Rob
Sometimes with actresses like her, you could imagine him roughly 6ft 2, but the fact he said 187cm I think is for a peak range fairly accurate.
Covvvid1984. said on 9/Apr/21
6-2 peak. Looks it in the early films absolutely.
OriginalAnon said on 3/Apr/21
He could have been 188 peak.
Sinclair said on 12/Aug/20
Reno gets at least a genuine 6’2” peak height from me. In French Kiss and The Pink Panther, Reno seems taller than Kevin Kline, I’d estimate 6’2” for Reno and 6’1.75” for Kline. There was about a two inch height difference between Reno and Tom Hanks in The Da Vinci Code and the same goes between Reno and Steve Martin in their Pink Panther movies. 6’2.5” listed Alfred Molina seemed to be slightly taller than Reno in The Pink Panther 2.
Almost 180cm guy said on 7/Aug/20
Today, Reno is 72 years old so he probably isn't over a flat 6ft 1 anymore. But in the 90's he looked well over this mark. I found some photos of him next to Sean Bean from 1998, Reno looked about 3 inches taller than Bean: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Rob, which is more likely in your opinion, 6ft 1 and 7/8 inches for Reno's peak height or 5ft 10.75 for Bean's peak height?
Editor Rob
Reno's 187 claim I think is honest, whether he reached 6ft 1 7/8th I'm not as convinced on.
Hulk23 said on 25/Jul/20
Honest 187cm guy!
Tall Sam said on 13/Jul/20
Yeah its true he looks towering and looms large in his French films, not as much in things like Ronin, Pink Panther,
Godzilla, etc. You'd get the impression that he's at least 6'3" from some of them, guess the other French actors were quite short.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jul/20
He looks strikingly tall in those old French movies...
meezemaker said on 15/Nov/19
His footsize is very large...

Usually largeshoes has équivalent heels

This point should be usually says
Caldoni said on 25/Oct/19
I’m inclined to say 6-2 solid peak. Reason why is I lived in Paris in the very early nineties and regular saw Jean actually drunk a good few times on the West Bank side of Paris. I’m a weak 6-3 and I’d say absolutely he was just under my height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/19
Rob, do you reckon he could be at 6ft1 now?
Editor Rob
He may well be sitting around that now.
Dmeyer said on 7/Sep/19
Strong 187 Peak make sens
meezemaker said on 5/Sep/19
But defenitly smaller than 191cm 'Danny Aiello in Leon whearas Reno was wearing big heelboot.
He said 187...

But comparing to other actors who claims 187 too like vincent cassel and others, we can doubt of objectivity
Sonnecker said on 7/Jun/18
Awesome actor, I'm a huge fan of him since a lot of years!
In the film The Purple Rivers he was a bit taller than Vincent Cassel.
Tall man, not far from 190 cm with a generally big structure. He hadn't lost anything noticeable until he was 60, I'd give him 6'2"1/4 in his prime peak, and 6'1' 1/2 today.
Tunman said on 6/Dec/17

How tall his wife is?like 5'9 assuming he's more like 6'1 at 69 years old.
Also how tall would you say Johnny hallyday was?He's a famous french singer who died today?Would have thought around 5'11 peak (he was 5 years older than Reno).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/17
Rob, maybe 188cm peak and 186-187cm today?
JJAK said on 28/Oct/17
Weird guy can look a massive 6 3 to a weak 6 1 in la femm nikita lame movie smallest he ever looked to me.
That is the first thing I saw him in he used to be described as latin and french raised born in morocco.
Good actor but often a lug or tough guy he was awesome in Leon! aka the professional.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Oct/17
Could look 189cm in the 80's

Richardspain said on 20/Sep/17

Maybe in his younger days Reno was a strong 188 cm/ 6'2 ft. Nowadays he is over sixty years old and as he said is 187cm I think he is honest.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 4/Sep/17
He's a legit 187cm like he claimed once, but I doubt he'd be a full 6'2"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/17
Still looks near 6ft2 w/h Steve Martin...
Jim Hopper said on 13/Aug/17
Met him in Paris around 94. He was drunk near the Eiffel tower!! Seriously!! Im just over 6-2" so in my converse Id say say 6.2 3/4. He was not much shorter in his flat sandals.. 6-2" prime imo.

Jean Reno (peak): 188cm
Steve Martin (peak): 183cm
Kevin Kline (peak): 186.7cm
RichardSpain said on 24/Jul/17
188 in peak could be.
Nowadays 187cm as he said in spanish talk show "hormiguero"
And he said speak in 5 languages, english, spanish, french, italian, and Arab. Today he lives in New York city.
Spanish said on 14/Jul/17
188 cm peak.
Jean Reno born in Casablanca, Morocco, his real name: (Juan Moreno y Herrera-Jiménez). He is not French, both parents were spanish, so to me, He is 100% Spanish but nationalized French!
RichardSpain said on 3/Apr/17
Jean Reno is 187cm today. He said his height at spanish program "el Hormiguero". You can see it here Click Here around minute 00:45 , he speaks in spanish.
Sonny Black said on 28/Mar/17
One of the few actors that doesn't lie about it his height. 6'2 peak and still looks close to that today, his lean build makes him seem taller.
berta said on 21/Feb/17
vewry honest guy with his cliam still looks this height and i though he was little over 6 foot 2 when he was young, but if he cliams this exact height then it prtobably is that
berta said on 6/Feb/17
this guy makes 187 lok very tall.actually thought he was 188-189 10 years back
Logan Hedlund said on 20/Jan/17
For mr. Reno I'd say solid 6'1.5. Do you think ed. Rob that he might be have lost some height with age? Maybe 6'1.75 right out of bed?
HonestSlovene said on 26/Oct/16
Gave off a 6'2" ish impression in most films tbh. Not 6'1 or 6'3.
berta said on 14/Oct/16
if he says he is 187 then he is probably not taller even when youing
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/16
188cm peak
Dmeyer said on 10/Aug/16
If 187cm peak then propbably 186cm by davinci code again it brings Hanks to 5 ft 11,75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/16
Still looks a solid 186/187cm today. I think he was 188cm peak and as dropped 1-2cm since. Still looked it in Ronin
Dmeyer said on 30/Apr/16
Hé does look 4-5cm over tom Hanks 10 years back wish proves 5ft 11,75-6ft is very likely for Hanks , defenetly no less than solid 187cm peak like 6ft 1,75 or weak 6ft 2 , today closer to 6ft 1
fred said on 18/Mar/16
Depardieu used to be 5.11 at least. Reno may have reached 6.2 when younger.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/16
Looked a strong 6ft2/weak 6ft3 in The Big Blue and Leon. Not under 188cm in the 80's-90's
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jan/16
Or 187.9cm which technically is 6ft2 on the nose
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Nov/15
188cm peak, Rob?

Looked at least 6ft2 in Leon and The Big Blue.
Editor Rob
if he came out with 187 I believe that is what he would have been measured it may well be 187 and a little bit and the little bit he's dropped. What if it was 187.5? It's close to 6ft 2...
meezemaker said on 19/Sep/15
Reno has been interviewed five / six years ago and since that definitely not the kind of person to lie, he likes to show who is time for show off. He answered 187 cm. I would estimate regarding his stature and the men he is saying right. Other point, he got at least 3-4 inches on Depardieu in the movie "tais-toi!"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/15
188-189cm peak
187-188cm today
Sam said on 5/Jun/15
Rob, would you consider a current listing of 6'1" for Reno?
Editor Rob
at one point he'll go to that.
MrTBlack said on 3/Jun/15
@Editor Rob

Wouldn't 187cm be closer to 6'1.5" than 6'1.75" because 187/2.54= 73.6220472?
Sam said on 19/May/15
Actually only looked 6'1" range IMO next to Steve Martin in the terrible Pink Panther remake. Maybe 1.5-2 inches taller. Also probably that range in Couples Retreat, so I think he's due for a current listing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/May/15
"Peak height was 6ft 2½in (189cm)"

Looks near 6ft3 in Leon and The Big Blue.
Does look a little below 6ft2 today though.
Andrea said on 30/Apr/15
Rob, he actually claims to be 187 in that video... Why is he still listed at a full 6'2? You also should mention he claims 187 in his description...
Editor Rob
just never realised it wasn't changed.
Judd said on 29/Apr/15
i can't buy anything under 6'1.75" at peak (with a good chance to be 6'2")...
today he's maybe a little shorter, if until 2006 he did look as tall as Alfred Molina, who IMO was a strong 6'2" and today maybe 6'1.5-1.75"...

6'1.75-2" at peak and 6'1.25-1.5" today are my estimates for JR
Sam said on 1/Apr/15
This guy's probably lost a little height with age.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/15

Where did he say that?
Hypado said on 8/Feb/15
Cool, Jean Reno himself says 187 cm. Is good se a honest actor about her height.
AlexMahone said on 8/Oct/14
I don't think so that he lost any height at age 66. I agree with Rampage(-_-_-)Clover his peak height was 6'2.5-6'2.75 (189-190cm).

If Steve Martin is 182 than Reno easly 189, beacuse in the Pink Panther (horrible) remake movies was 6-7cm height difference between them.
bobbieshaftoe said on 6/Sep/14
The voiceover for the 2001 movie 'Wasabi' gives his height as 6'4", but he is clearly at least a couple of inches shorter than Vince Vaughan in 'Couples Retreat'.
Dmeyer said on 26/May/14
188cm peak 185.5-6cm now

He was always barefoot in the movie "Couples Retreat".

188-189 peak, 187 now.
maio said on 21/Aug/12
i think he was a strong 6 ft 1.5 in/187 cm in his prime, maybe also 6 ft 1.75 in.
Nowadays he lost a good half of an inche, so 6 ft 1 in/185 cm is right for him. Look at these pics with a strong 6 ft 1 in/185 cm Zinedìne Zidane (Click Here Click Here).
They are at the same level!

With 5'11 Steve Martin he looks 187cm
So peak 188cm and 187cm currently

In 3 years time he could drop down to 186cm.
Those pics shows max 1 inch (and I say MAX) height difference.

6ft2.25-6ft2.5 prime Rob?
Sasha said on 5/Feb/11
In films Jean Reno doesn't look tall - something like 5'11"-6'0. But almost always he slouches terribly. So if he stands straight, he could be 2 inches taller.
dmeyer said on 17/Nov/10
189 peak 187 now looks 6 ft 1.5 no more today at 63 he was taller at peak

-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 24/Feb/09
I can't see him shorter than 6ft2. 6ft2.25 would be more appropriate. He infact looked about one inch taller than Kline.
dicky curtis said on 21/Feb/09
He looked shorter than kevin kline by an inch
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 16/Feb/09
188cm-190cm is spot on. He never looks shorter than 6ft2. I'd say a strong 6ft2. I really do think that 187cm is unrealistic.
glenn said on 7/Feb/09
saw this guy just the other night.seemed 6-1 with bad,yeah i guess 6-2.i read 6-3.
Hugh said on 6/Feb/09
In the 80's he looked 6ft3ish at times. He's into his sixties at this point so it's possible that he's lost height. Still he does look a good 6ft2. I would say 190cm in his prime.
Hugh said on 20/Jan/09
Hugh said on 1/Dec/08
Nope I personally think I'm right on the money with my estimates. Actually 6ft3 for Molina is a bit of an exaggeration. More 6ft2.25-6ft2.5.
Anonymous said on 16/Nov/08
Hugh you give them all a inch taller than they are, or perhaps in shoes...
Hugh said on 20/Mar/08
He's tall. I was in Paris when they filmed the Da Vinci Code. I saw Reno, Hanks and Molina. Hanks looked 6ft1ish. Reno 6ft2.5ish and Molina 6ft3. And yes he's considered a giant by french standards.
j-c said on 22/Jan/08
When I was living in Montreal,I saw him a long time at the end of a concert of big french star and friend of him, Johnny Hallyday.
I am 1M79 and he seems to be 1M86 but I am sure he isn't 1M90. Very sympathic person.
By the way, I am french and I am not considered like a tall guy compared to other French men (french male average tall in 2006 is 1M76)

Jean Reno looks between 6'2 and 6'3 IMO.
hb45 said on 12/Jan/07
1m87/88 is the good estimation. Which is pretty tall for a french. French average height is 1m75, but the young french are much taller than the older generations. I've read once that the french who are about 20 years old now reach 1m78, that's much taller than 50 years ago!
Anthony said on 17/Dec/06
6'2 looks right. He looked really big in "Leon". He towered over Oldman. And Portman, who probably wasn't even 5' at the time.
Miiiiiiighty said on 1/Nov/06
The pic with Chirac and Douillet is badly taken ...
Douillet seems almost Reno's height whereas he is 196cm tall (6'5"1/4) ...
My guess is Chirac 188 and Reno 190 ...

Andreas said on 25/Sep/06
by the way, for those unfamiliar, 6'1" is 185.42 cm and 6'2" is 187.96 cm, so he's somewhere in between... say 6'1".5
Andreas said on 25/Sep/06
Met and spoke to Jean Reno about ten times. I love socialising with him because, much like David Beckham (5'10.5), he has no airs of pretentiousness just because he's a celeb and enjoys conversing with normal, average people. According to what he told me, when he enlisted the help of a personal trainer to lose some weight back in 1995 or so, he stands at exactly 186 cm, but is often made to wear shoes with thick soles and sizeable heels when cast for roles in which he plays a forceful character.

I always thought he was around 1`90 but in French Kiss he didn´t look taller than Kevin Kline. Kline is tall but next 1`93-95 guys he looks much shorter, like 8-10 cm. I guess Reno is 1`86-87 and so is Kline

Yep I think you are spot on there Rob - though most sites list him as 6'3", he looks just over 3inches taller than gary Oldman and Gerard Depardieu who are both 5'10"
