Okay, movie directors on Celebrity Heights, which I have always considered a little odd, since they don't derive their status from their physical bodies. But John Waters? This man is not David Lean or Stanley Kubrick. I have seen a John Waters movie, but I'm glad my Mom never found out.
Editor Rob: well, directors are famous to an extent, some more-so than others.

Although Waters isn't really that well known I suppose, not many are going to be searching for his height...

He's rail thin so might have looked taller. Certainly at least 6ft1

186cm peak Rob?
Editor Rob: harder to tell if he really was a big 6ft 1 guy or a weaker one. He certainly could give a tall impression.

Rob, could he have been closer to 6"2" when he was younger?

Just passed him on the street recently. I'm somewhere between 6'1" and 6'2", and he seemed just about level with me, so I think 6'1" might still be accurate for him.

I have met him. Amazing guy. He looks tall because he is so skinny, however I think he is closer to 5'10 than 6'1 and should be downgraded. I would say 5'11 max.

5ft10! I think between 6ft1 and 6ft2 is more likely.

Who is John Waters fooling? He is at best 5-10. He walked past me on Oscar night.

As a younger man--20 years ago--John told me his height was 6'1".

JOHN WATERS IS MY FAVORITE DIRECTOR AND MY ROLE MODEL. I WOULD CONCLUDE HE'S ABOUT 6'1'' OR 6'2'' BECAUSE HE APPEARS TO BE A TALL GUY. HE'S NOT UNDER 6' NOR OVER 6'2''.

I met John Waters at a book signing in Boston about three years ago. I am 6'3 and I had to look down on him. I would say he is about 5'10-5'11

You have got to be kidding me!. He walked past me after the Oscars a few years ago. I was on the sidewalk, and Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were getting into their limo in front of me. I felt someone brush past on my left and it was John Waters. I say he goes about 5-10.

[Editor Rob: it could be worse, he's 6ft 2 on the imdb! It is possible in his 20's he was 6ft 1 with shoes and that's why he's saying that...and maybe lost some height]
