Yeah, I was a fan of both Costner and Ford when I was a kid and always imagined them around the same size but I do think now that Costner would have edged out Ford by a couple cm both in 80s and maybe a full 3 cm today.

This guy is a full 6'1. In 1993 he was interviewed by the NY Times, and they listed him at "6 feet 1 inches tall, 170 pounds". This seems rather slim, but the clothing he wore in Dances with wolves 1990, the untouchables 1987, show us a man 170 - 180 lbs, basically Harrison Ford sized, but slightly taller.

His overcoat was a size 40L (40 inch chest, -- Long) in Untouchables, and his uniform in Dances with wolves was a 16" neck, and 42 chest. Sleeves 34" , and size 11 shoe. The industry standard for a 40 L overcoat/ suit is for a man from 6 ft to 6 ft 3, also called Medium tall/ or Medium Long. So this also illustrates the man is a solid 6 footer. You can find all these stats in proparchives and other websites that auction off Movie props. They are good independent ways to use volumetric estimates of body mass, and height to within 10 or 20 lbs, and approx. an inch of stature.

Well if Costner really is 184-185, what does that mean for Cavill, who is shorter despite better posture?

rob u forget upside of anger
dmeyer said on 25/Jan/14
i agree today nearer 6 ft 0.5-0.75 in 10 yrs back defenetly 6 ft 1-1.2
Balrog said on 24/Jan/14
Dmeyer, maybe 10 year ago full 6'1'' for Costner is ok but recently he seemed same height as Chris Pine. Maybe now 184cm is a possibility? He is almost 60..
berta said on 24/Jan/14
i think he is and was 186
DMEYER said on 22/Jan/14
at low i am 5 ft 11.25-11.5 he seemed close to 2 in taller defenetly not under 6 ft 1 10 years ago it wouldnt shock me if he was measured at peak 6 ft 1 1/8 185.5-6cm , 1cm mistake is possible so about 4cm taller 181.5 plus 4 cm thats 185.5/6ft1
thebad7 said on 20/Jan/14
Like Clint Eastwood, lots of people want to believe this guy is short--he isn't. He's a textbook example of 6'1". In 1987's THE UNTOUCHABLES, when his Elliott Ness meets Sean Connery's CPD Officer Jim Malone on the bridge, the men stand face-to-face with similar footwear. Connery is about 1" taller, and I've always believed Connery to be 6'2" as he stacks up this way against 6' and 6'1" actors. Likewise, in 2007's MR. BROOKS, Costner looks almost identical to William Hurt--with 6'2" Hurt having a slight but noticeable advantage.

One note about him that someone else pointed out: he's always seemed to be very honest and without care regarding his height. I've seen him claim both 6' and 6'1" in interviews--he's not like 6'2" Ben Affleck, who claims 6'3 1/2" or 6'4". Confident guy, wonderful screen presence, awesome director--2003's OPEN RANGE is his best work as a director and actor. It's nice to see that's he reinvented himself as a kind of character actor--he looks to be really good in the upcoming JACK RYAN film with Chris Pine.

One other note: the man looks great at 58 years old, and he doesn't look like he's lost any height. 6'1" in his prime for sure.

I wouldn't argue anywhere below 6ft1/185cm for Costner's peak after watching Bull Durham, The Untouchables and Field of Dreams. Looks pretty close to 6ft2 with Tim Robbins who might've been a full 6ft5.
Lenad said on 13/Dec/13
185-186cm prime.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Dec/13
Rob, have you watched Man of Steel?

I think Henry Cavill could be just 6ft on the nose
Editor Rob
I think he's got to be above 6ft flat - he has scenes in The Tudors with Callum Blue and isn't really much different!
Lenad said on 8/Dec/13
Rob do you think 186cm could be closer to the truth for his prime? I sure do
Editor Rob
you can't rule a fraction above or below a mark out, it is possible he was a guy who could be mid-day a fraction above 6ft 1.
Edlt2882 said on 4/Dec/13
I actually walked past Kevin Costner (not realizing in that moment that it was him) at Cal State Fullerton of all places. I remember thinking that he was far taller than me (I stand 5'7"), and would have placed him at 6'3". But he was wearing boots, which may have given him a 2 inch boost, so 6'1" sounds right. I wouldn't go lower.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/13
Rob, did Costner also claim to be 6ft2 aswell?

I seem to remember saying it a few years ago that he mentioned it on some talk show.
Editor Rob
I've never heard him say that mark, 6ft and 6ft 1 usually.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Nov/13
Most of his post-Millenium stuff is forgettable, with the exception of Mr. Brooks and The Guardian.
bodwaya said on 5/Nov/13
Rob would u say the box office success of man of steel means his career is.back on track
Editor Rob
that movie and being in upcoming Jack Ryan film is certainly much better quality than some of the stuff he's done in previous 10 years, although I did like Mr Brooks.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/13
187-187.5cm out of bed, 185-185.5cm evening
Dejavu said on 21/Oct/13
186 prime definitely
Uose said on 17/Oct/13
Does anyone remember Waterworld? He's the main actor there, and someone asks him his height, he answers "around 6 foot". By that I used to think he must be 5' 11'' ish. Any definite proof/evidence for anything over 6' Rob?
Editor Rob
I think he can look more than 6 foot in a lot of films over the years
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/13
He looks 6ft1-2 in a lot of his movies.
Lorne said on 22/Sep/13
Not under 6ft1, even at 58 he must be 185. Demeter said he flirted with 186cm in person, he was just3, max 3.5in under 184.5-195cm Tim Robbins, 4-5cm taller than 182cm Ray Liotta. I think 186cm isn't impossible, certainly a guy who never measured less than 185.5, today still a full 185, at worst a few mm under if Cavill is nearer 183. What is strange is Rob says 100% that Costner wasn't more than a full 6ft1, yet he is clearly and comfortably taller than the supposedly 184cm Henry Cavill at age 58. And Cavill has that impeccable Brad Pitt type posture. Personally, I say 6ft0.25 is much better for Cavill, unless Costner was minimum 185.5 and justhasn't lost any height whatsoever.
jimeagon said on 10/Sep/13
I'm 6foot 3 and I have met him. I was in flat dress shoes and he was in boots. When I spoke with him we where eye to eye.
James Crowley Maximus Meridius said on 6/Sep/13
Rob Kevin Costner was only 5ft 2in in highschool he was about 17 and he grew too 11 inches too 6ft 1in that was one big growth spurt he was a late bloomer late bloomers are often very short or even extremely short and end up tall or even very tall late bloomers often end up taller they have late growth spurts like in highschool or college.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/13
Dmeyer, when did you meet Costner?
dmeyer said on 10/Aug/13
when i met him he was flirting with 186cm no less than strong 6 ft 1 a kind of guy who didnt dip under the 185.3-185.5cm mark today might be 184.5-185cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/13
And he still edged out Henry Cavill
avi said on 6/Aug/13
Robbins looks 6'5 or more on screen. But he may be 6'4.5 or even 6'4. Costner looked 3-3.5 shorter I think you may have a point he could be a strong 6'1 but camera angles may favor Costner. Its so hard to say. 6'1 is fair
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Aug/13
Rob would not agree but...

"Peak height was 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"

Looked 186-187cm in the 80s and 90s. Only 3in shorter than Tim Robbins (possibly 6ft5 peak) in Bull Durham and about 2in taller than Ray Liotta (possibly 6ft peak) in Field of Dreams. So, really he pulled off 6ft2 opposite those guys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/13
Larc, most people here agree that Reynolds is 6ft2 or therebouts.
Cooper I personally think is 6ft1.

I'm just saying that Costner can appear close to 6ft2. Doesn't mean he is. Probably was always in the 6ft1 range. He was 2in taller than Ray Liotta in Field of Dreams.
Larc 74in said on 29/Jul/13
No way in hell Bradley Cooper is 6'1....just look at him with Ryan Reynolds, he's more than one inch shorter than him, and Reynolds isn't 188, but more likely 186-187 in truth. So either 183 or 184 are more than enough for Cooper.

And Costner always looked just about a full 6'1, no more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/13
186-187cm morning?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/13
He looked near 6ft2 in Field of Dreams next to Ray Liotta
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/13
Rob, is there a chance Costner might've been 186-187cm range in the 80s/90s?
Editor Rob
I don't think so, just a 6ft 1 guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/13
Watching Limitless and Silver Linings Playbook, Cooper reminded me of Costner.
Fair hair, piercing blue eyes and similiar height.

Both look 6ft1
Arch Stanton said on 26/Jul/13
Ms Wine says on 26/Jan/13
Bradley Cooper reminds me of Ralph Fiennes they both have piercing blue eyes deep set and the same build. Much more of a likeness than K Cosner

Actually I'm in the middle of watching Dances with Wolves and in the film he reminds me of Bradley Cooper a lot. Costner is a better looking guy than Ralph Fiennes. Looks 6'1" in my opinion.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/13
Maybe 186cm peak and 184-185cm today, Rob?
Silent d said on 3/Jul/13
6 foot 1 and humble.

Looks 6'0" to 6'1" in pretty much everything he's done.

can someone talk about his man of steel role and how it ends his reign of flops
jtm said on 17/Jun/13
probably 6'0.5 nowadays.
bodwaya said on 17/Jun/13
I saw man of steel it was good . Costners part was bigger then i thought . Looks like it ends his streak of box office poison
Terry said on 15/Jun/13
I think you got his height spot on.
Dejavu said on 14/Jun/13
Nowadays could be a bit lower. He looked 1.5-2 inches under Ben Affleck
bodwaya said on 11/Jun/13
anyone know how big is his part in man o steel i want to know if its an offical comeback
Peterx said on 26/May/13
I'm 6'1 and stood back to back with Costner at a Hollywood watering hole. We're precisely the same height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/13
"Kevin Costner height: 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"
Not much shorter than Ashton Kutcher in The Guardian

coolerking said on 16/Jan/13
I worked on Fandango for a couple of weeks and so was up close to Kevin many times. I'm a little over 5'10" and Kevin was taller than me, but not by much. I would peg him at a solid 6'. I have a relative who is 6'1" and he is definitely taller than Costner. Just watched Untouchables and I would guess he is wearing something to give him another inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/12
This guy reminds me of a much older Bradley Cooper and not just because they're the same height. Tall and slim with blue eyes and fair hair.

Legit 6'1 in person

Didnt look much shorter than Ashton Kutcher and Clancy Brown in The Guardian. Both 189-190cm
bodwaya said on 10/Oct/12
HE might look short cuase alot of the actors he acts with are taller than him.morgna freeman affleck connery.but if you notice he was equal height wit 6 foot 1 alan rickman
jfm said on 9/Oct/12
I met kevin Costner in Aspen, Clorodo back in 1997. He looks to be about 6'1" tall. I'm 6'3" and Kevin was about 2 inches shorther than me. Nice guy.
Dmeyer said on 9/Oct/12
In person looked about 186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/12
Silent D, Brosnan is listed at 186cm and is at least that tall so it's hardly a condradiction.
Silent d said on 27/Sep/12
Rob how can you say pierce brosnan would be taller if he is only 184cm? That is a contradiction to the listing. Costner is a solid 6 foot 1.
bodwaya said on 11/Sep/12
lol u r implying that costner is shorter 5 foot 11. lol kidding me right. rumour has it he was eye level wit 6 foot 1 richard jenkins . Second of all he was inch shorter 6 foot 2 affleck in company men. he has an inch on 6 foot ray liota. lastly hes barley shorter then 6 foot 2 connery.he is honest about his height. judging from pics he is the only actor i know that dosent wear lifts
icu said on 11/Sep/12
Have any of U seen the movie Silverado - Costner is shorter than Scott Glenn rated at 5"11 1/2" and a lot shorter than Kevin Kline who's rated at 6'1" ?
icu said on 11/Sep/12
Any of U ever see Silverado - he's shorter than Scott Glenn rated at 5'11 1/2" ?
And a whole lot shorter than Kevin Kline at 6'1" !
bodwaya said on 11/Sep/12
in rumour has it he is only shorter then 6 foot 3 christopher macdonald by 2 inches
Shaun said on 9/Sep/12
Saw him in a film last night and thought he looked similar range to Harrison Ford (at his peak), I'd have guessed 6'0.5"-6'1.
Maximus Meridius said on 1/Sep/12
Rob would you say he is a late bloomer he was 5ft 2in at 17 and grown 11 inches nearly a foot too 6ft 1in he had a late growth spurt is it common for boys in high school and college too have late growth spurts and grow 11 inches maybe even a foot.
Editor Rob
a very late large spurt must be an interesting growth, you go from being a short guy to a tallish guy in a couple of years...
Willy said on 1/Sep/12
Most legitimate 6'1'' I've ever seen on a 6'1'' claiming movie star. People like Keanu, Bruce, and Denzel should take note.
bodwaya said on 13/Aug/12
he is also an inch taller 6 foot quaid so 6 foot 1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/12
That's what I was thinking
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/12
Rob, who in your opinion would be taller ,
Pierce Brosnan or Kevin Costner?
Editor Rob
Pierce by a fraction
bodwaya said on 14/Jun/12
in a picture with him and kyle mchlan so no more then an inch on 6 foot kyle. So he is one of the few people honest about his height
steven said on 11/Jan/12
he can't make up his mind on 6'0 and 6'1. i"ll say 6'0 is possible than 6'1. if 6'1 there would only put this range morning before 9am. he look a real solid 6'0 than many 6'1 claim actor who apear 5'10-5'11.75 range.
carnegie said on 12/Dec/11
solid 6'1 in mr brooks

jake i met costner and he looked near 186cm in his 50s so defenetly could have been that peak height

in person 8 years ago was a genuine tall men at about 6 ft 1 185-186cm
maio said on 5/Dec/11
Kevin Costner was 6 ft 1 in/185 cm (PEAK) and nowadays is 6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 4/Dec/11
6ft 1.25 (1.86 m) peak is very possible.
Silent d said on 20/Nov/11
185cm. Never doubted his height. Doesn't he have like 5 kids? What a guy and he is still going. One of the great actors. He has been a little quiet for a few years now.
LAN Jiao said on 6/Nov/11
no costner is at least 6'0. 6'1 morning

184 for costner out a bed

Costner minimum fraction over 6'0. Theres reason why he claim 6'1 n 6'0. Strong 6'0.

6ft barefoot solid 6ft 1 may be hes a solid 6 this days
James said on 3/Oct/11
weak 6'1 1/2
Mr. Tempus said on 2/Oct/11
if he said 6'0 he is 6'0, i believe that.
James said on 26/Sep/11
I think he looked more 6'1 than 6'2 in Mr Brooks. Overall he is for sure closer too 6'1 than the 6'2 mark.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/11
A really solid 6"1 guy like 185cm-186cm.
Definitely looks near 6"2 in Robin Hood, Mr. Brooks and The Untouchables.
Perhaps 188cm out of bed?
James said on 22/Sep/11
looked close too 6'2 as well next too tim robbins in bull durham
the shredder said on 21/Sep/11
Looks close to Morgan in Robin Hood and taller then Rickman !
thebad7 said on 21/Sep/11
@James: I wonder that, too. 6'1" for certain. 6'1" and some change wouldn't surprise me. I do agree with your observation: in some films he does look close to 6'2".

James said on 20/Sep/11
thebad7 do you think 185cm or 186cm for costner?
thebad7 said on 19/Sep/11
Watched THE UNTOUCHABLES recently. Once again, no mistake about it: next to 6'2" Sean Connery, Costner looks 6'1"--keep in mind both actors are wearing dress shoes with a similar heel. I never thought of Costner as physically intimidating, but whether one loves him or hates him, the man does have a great screen presence, and yes, he does look tall onscreen--not super tall, but tall. 6'1" barefoot is right for him because he does look 6'2" with shoes--looking back on THE UNTOUCHABLES, this makes sense since Sean Connery has at least an inch on him, and Connery always looked like he hit 6'3" in shoes. Keep in mind that this film was shot in '86/'87 so both actors were younger and essentially at their peak heights.

I think the case for Costner being 6'1" is bolstered by the fact that in photos I've seen, he looked about the same height as Ashton Kutcher--whom I believe to be 6'1" barefoot--with Kutcher having an edge in height. If Costner was 5'11" or a weak 6'0" barefoot, he'd be dwarfed by so many actors. He holds his own against 6'2"+ actors--Connery, William Hurt, Clint Eastwood, etc.

Bon_ says on 16/Sep/11
James, he doesn't very often strike as really tall but that's because he has a small frame, he's very thin when not overweight, not robust at all.
Bull if you look realistically, he does look like 6'1 - 6'2 guy in his prime.

i think i would lable costner as a weak 6'1 1/2 at his peak like 185-186cm. he struck me as looking stocky in the bodyguard which can make you look shorter.

these days i think he would be exactley 4 inches shorter than someone like tim robibns and when younger 3.75 inches shorter than tim. he's still standing legitly tall at 6'1 flat.
LAN Jiao said on 16/Sep/11
kevin costner only look about an inch shorter than ashton kutcher without shoe advantage in real, but weir that he look 2inch shorter than ashton in the guardian. my guess 184cm for kevin costner.

Luncthtime: 6'1.5 (187cm)
Afternoon: 6'1.25 (186cm)
Evening: 6'1.25 (186cm)

I think today 185cm and peak 186cm.
Jay said on 14/Sep/11
Sometimes looked taller than 6"1"" but an old Burt Lancaster looked his height in Field of Dreams. 184cm is right for Costner, a weak 6"1"" like Harrison Ford
Dmeyer said on 14/Sep/11
At 5' 11.6 coster was near 2 in taller 7 years ago

yeah he could look 186cm with Ashton Kutcher and tim robbins.

still though coster seems like a 'weak' tall guy.
the shredder said on 4/Sep/11
Rob , do you think he could have been more like 6'1.25 ? I swear he looked less then an inch lower then Freeman ... They looked the same height in the film .

Never 6-1 barefoot. 6-0 barefoot and 6-1 in shoes.
Hansen said on 15/Aug/11
william hurt looks mildly shorter than costner in mr brooks.
since costner claim both 6ft n 6ft1 he might be on the middle of digit 184cm. he is a solid 6footer if you see him on any film.
thebad7 said on 15/Aug/11
His breakout film, 1984's FANDANGO, was on MoviePlex last week. Costner, much like Gerard Butler and Benicio Del Toro, has a loose posture, but when he stands with good posture, it's clear he's tall. He was 6'1" then at age 29, and from what photos I've seen recently, he looks to still be around that mark. The most recent film I've seen him was MR. BROOKS from 2007, and he looked just about an inch shorter than 6'2" William Hurt. He's always looked like a textbook 6'1" tall.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/11
In 2005 Hurt was probably still around 6ft2, James. Nowadays I agree he is most likely heading towards 6ft1.5.
James said on 12/Aug/11
Rampage Hurt might have been 187cm in Mr Brooks possibly?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/11
Connery has never used lifts, Bon. He is a legit tall man, both in his prime and now.
Lenad said on 10/Aug/11
actually solid 185cm is fine
Bon_ said on 9/Aug/11
Connery uses lifts to get him over his 6' flat, if that.

Costner looked 186-187cm range with then 6ft2(188cm) William Hurt in Mr. Brooks

Untouchable is on right now. Sean Connery is over an inch taller. Not 6'1.

Costner did look 6'1-6'2 next too 6'4.5 Tim Robbins. Could have even pulled of looking 6'2 if Robbins really is 6'5? One thing is for sure he looked taller in comparison too Robbins than John C Mcginley did.

Of course though Costner does not look 188cm next too legit 6'2.5 Ashton Kutcher.

Garcia is probably 5'8. Costner is 185cm max, not min. My estimate is 6ft-6ft0.5(with 6ft0.5in being more likely). That's how he looked barefoot in 'Waterworld'.
Bon_ said on 23/Jul/11
Not really a decisive type of evidence. With Kutcher looks almost 6'2.
James said on 23/Jul/11
Costner can look 186cm though with 189-190cm Ashton Kutcher I will admit.

mike said on 19/Jul/11
Click Here Costner is no more than 2 inches taller than 5ft9 Andy Garcia(leaning the head). The diffrence may be seen even on the shoulders.
Click Here

Click Here And somewhere in present. Cosner and Garcia, oldtimes buddies. Cosner is again no more than 2 inches taller than Garcia. Note: Cosner is closer to the camera.

I think he never was taller than 6ft and nowadays he is not much more than an honest 5ft11.
Bon_ said on 18/Jul/11
I disagree James in Bodyguard he did look an inch taller than 6' Gary Kemp
James said on 17/Jul/11
Didn't look 186cm in the Bodyguard more like a strong 6ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jul/11
Don't rule out 186cm for this guy
Bon_ said on 10/Jul/11
Good finding Rob. In 'No way out' he looked about half inch shorter than Hackman but was wearing thinner footwear. Hackman was 57 at the time so maybe down to 187 cm then. All in all, legit evening 6'1 BARE minimum for Costner.
James said on 6/Jul/11
He looked 184cm in the bodyguard.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/11
But doesn't that really make Costner more like a strong 6ft1?
John J said on 1/Jul/11
It is so sick that he grew a foot after he was 18. He must have grown to the age of 25, which is not very commen at all. But so cool for him, think about how at age 18 he must have been like "**** I'm so small and all the girls are taller than me" and now he is 6'1 and famous movie star. Well maybe he did'nt think like that but it is a good story
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/11
Rob what is the likelyhood of Costner being 186cm?
Editor Rob
I was flicking through a folder with photos and saw one of him and gene hackman where he's taller! I'm sure at peak he is likely to have been 187-8cm out of bed.
Bon_ said on 30/Jun/11
Yes, John, he sprouted a foot after the age of 18.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/11
In The Untouchables he looked 6ft1-6ft1.5 next to a then 6ft2(188cm) Sean Connery
John said on 29/Jun/11
So Kevin C. was like 5'2 in high school, then he grew to 6'1 after? Did he have tall parents? I always thought that most people have their hands and feet grow first, then finish up at about age 19 or 20, but Costner started all of that vertical growth after HS?
James said on 28/Jun/11
In the Untouchables looked 6'0.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jun/11
I saw Bull Durham and Costner did look near 6ft2
jpellet78 said on 17/Jun/11
Check out "Bull Durham", Costner is clearly 3-4 inches shorter than Tim Robbins, placing him at about 6'1"/6'2".
TruebloodFan said on 14/Jun/11
@Viper says on 1/Jun/11
LOL, Sean Connery aint 6-2

Costner peak height is 6-0

for Connery's height I'm not sure. but he did look strong tall in 'The Longest Day' and 'Dr. No'.

I agree about Costner. he was strong 6ft peak. a guy of his proportions can easily claim 6ft1 if he wanted and it wouldn't be doubted. on the other hand he didn't look legit 6ft1 in 'The Upside of Anger' next to Joan Allen but he was like 50 or more then already. could have been a fraction over 6ft peak, but I doubt it. he'd always say 6'1 if he was that height.

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Jun/11
lol Viper's wrong all the time...

Viper's less of a downgrader than you're an upgrader Rampage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/11
I think overall 185cm-186cm is a decent fit for Costner. He's always looked a solid 6ft1 and no less
Dmeyer said on 12/Jun/11
7 years ago i met him thé Guy was 185 186 cm well over six ft
James said on 11/Jun/11
Costner does not always look 6'1. in fact he can look 5'11ish even but i think with ashton kutcher he does look 186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/11
lol Viper's wrong all the time...
Bon_ said on 5/Jun/11
Viper, you are wrong this time(on Costner)
Viper said on 1/Jun/11
LOL, Sean Connery aint 6-2

Costner peak height is 6-0
thebad7 said on 1/Jun/11
People love to debate over this guy's height. He's a tall guy--he looks it. 6'1" is bang-on for him. In 1988's THE UNTOUCHABLES, he looked 1" shorter than 6'2" Sean Connery. In '93, he did A PERFECT WORLD with Clint Eastwood, and Eastwood had him by 2". Years later, he starred in MR. BROOKS with 6'2" William Hurt. Same deal: Costner looked about an inch shorter than Hurt. 6'1" is right for Costner.


P.S.--People love DANCES WITH WOLVES, but his greatest achievement in Westerns is 2003's OPEN RANGE.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/11
At night he may be a tad under 6ft1 like 6ft0.75(185cm)...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/May/11
At night he's maybe a shade below the 6ft1 Mark
Bon_ said on 25/May/11
nowadays I still doubt he ever goes under 185.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/11
186cm morning
185cm afternoon
184cm evening
Bon_ said on 23/May/11
Costner always looked shorter than he is in my opinion. He just isn't the 'height' kind of guy. Easy 6'1.25 at peak in my opinion.
Looking about half inch shorter than Gene Hackman in 'No Way Out' in 1987, Hackman in dress shoes and Costner in flats, but Hackman was 57 then and probably a little under 6'2.
Sonny Black said on 22/May/11
Could it be his lanky build that made him look taller in the movies? 6'0.5 feet tall maybe?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/May/11
He's a solid 185cm if not 186cm
Bon_ said on 20/May/11
sorry Coolerking that seems hard to swallow
Coolerking said on 18/May/11
I was Costner's stand-in during his west Texas filming of Fandango. He was just a bit taller than me. I would peg him at 5'11.5" to 6' tops. I was 5'10.5 back then and we are the same age.
Bon_ said on 12/May/11
Trueblood fan, where did Costner exactly say he is 6' flat?
ˇMaybe I'm 6-feet and I'm white" is his generalized statement and you are taking it out of context
TruebloodFan said on 7/May/11
lol. Bon, you're a guy who guesses Tom Cruise at 5ft4 and Pierce Brosnan at 5ft8...
if he was really 6ft1, he'd never say 6ft. same as Pitt's 5ft10 claim back in the 80s. 6ft0.5 peak maybe.
Kutcher isn't as tall as most of you think.
marko said on 6/May/11
strong 6 ft 1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/May/11
Yeah he did look a really strong 6"1 in Field of Dreams
Bon_ said on 2/May/11
Hurt was easy 189 cm at peak, 6'2.5
Lenad said on 2/May/11
I doubt Hurt has ever been over 6ft2
Bon_ said on 1/May/11
Also looks possibly 187 cm next to 5'11.75 Liotta in Field of Dreams
Lenad said on 1/May/11
He doesnt look over 6ft1 these days
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/11
Looks 186-187cm next to William Hurt in Mr. Brooks
Lenad said on 30/Apr/11
When he was younger he could have been 186cm. No more than that but
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/11
Costner might be 186cm...
Bon_ said on 28/Apr/11
More evidnece: youtube 'Ashton Kutcher & Kevin Costner: On Parenthood and Working Together In' there are a few clips of them standing right next to each other in totally casual fashion, ridiculous even to imagine some of them would use lifts. Costner looks virtually the same height as 6'2-ish Kutcher.
Anything under 6'1 for Costner is just plain ridiculous.
Bon_ said on 26/Apr/11
Strong 186 cm peak and now. Maybe could touch 187 cm on a good day at peak.
Lenad said on 26/Apr/11
I reckon 184cm min 186cm max prime. 183cm min 185cm max today. So I'd say he was 6'1-ish in his prime and he looked it to me. Now he doesnt look anymore than 6'1 to me
marko said on 21/Apr/11
from 5 foot 2 to 6 foot
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Apr/11
I don't entirely rule out 186cm for Costner because he has looked near 6"2 in the past. It's definitely more plausible than 182cm!
Bon_ said on 16/Apr/11
Looks easy 186 cm in Tin Cup to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Apr/11
He looked 186-187cm in The Untouchables opposite a 'then' 6"2 Sean Connery.
James said on 14/Apr/11
Meh well he looked 182cm in the Untouchables.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Apr/11
Rob would Costner measure at 187cm in the morning?

Editor Rob
I think very early in the morning.
Bon_ said on 9/Apr/11
I doubt he ever goes under 6'1.
Viper said on 9/Apr/11
hes 6-0 max. slight chance 5-11 range
Bon_ said on 7/Apr/11
5'11 no way... he clearly has proportions of an at least legit 6'1 guy
Toby said on 6/Apr/11
He must have had a delayed puberty or something because pretty much every guy is at over 5'5 at least when they finish high school..
Snake Eyes said on 1/Apr/11
When they released the promo baseball cards for Bull Durham, he is listed at 5'11 on the back of the card. You can find these things still on Ebay. I worked in a card shop back then. He may not have had any input in the stats on the card, but 5'11 looks about right next to Tim Robbins 6'4 in BD.
Bon_ said on 29/Mar/11
yeah, he was only 5'2 at 18-19, It would interest me how long did it take him to grow to 6'1
Toby said on 29/Mar/11
Apparently he was only 5 foot 2 when he left high school. Gives hope to all small teenagers lol.
Bon_ said on 27/Mar/11
that's BS James, at least 6'1 peak
James said on 25/Mar/11
Rampage Michael Jordan is 194-195cm and even when slouching he still looked 4 inches taller than costner and 5.5 inches taller if he stood fully straight.

Again that would make Costner more like 5'11.5-6'0. Just my opinion thats all.

I defenintly think with Jordan Costner looks 5'11.75. At his peak probably 6'0 (183cm).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/11
Costner looked 184cm next to Jordan with a slouch...he's 6ft1 flat and most likely 187cm when he wakes up
James said on 22/Mar/11
He looked 5'11ish next to Michael Jordan.
Bon_ said on 9/Mar/11
Rampage, does it still on Costner's Myspace say that he is 188 cm tall? If yes, where it is exactly? I'd like to check it out
Bon_ said on 24/Feb/11
Garcia is I reckon one of those guys who lies a little about his height on his page there are some it seems reliable sightings of him about 5'7 and I also get like 5'7.5 max for him. So he's obviously a guy that would use lifts and various tricks to make himself taller to the public eye, and I wouldn't use him as comparison with Costner who obviously doesn't care much about height since he's in the perfect range.
Much better comparisons are with Hurt, Kutcher and Liotta.
LG69 said on 23/Feb/11
Saw a photo of Kevin and Andy Garcia. They were both standing with good posture, but Kevin looked no more than 2.5" taller than 5'9-5'9.5" Andy. Peak height for Kevin is 6'0.
Bon_ said on 19/Feb/11
I think 188 cm out of bed, that's why he sometimes claims it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/11
He's likely 186cm or 187cm out of bed
Bon_ said on 11/Feb/11
I currently have him at 186 cm flat
dmeyer said on 10/Feb/11
yeah bon he could have been since 6 ft 1.25 since he looked solid 6 ft 1 when i met him and he was in his 50s even when i met him 6 years ago he could have been that i can buy 6 ft 0.75 to 6 ft 1.25 in now he could aproach srong 184 to 185
Bon_ said on 9/Feb/11
What does Posman have to do with Costner's actual height?
TruebloodFan said on 9/Feb/11
In 'Postman' he says he's 'around 6 feet'. Probably 184 in his youth, 6ft today.
Bon_ said on 8/Feb/11
dmeyer, do you think Costner could have been 6'1.25 at his peak?
Bon_ said on 6/Feb/11
May I note that earlier discussions about Costner were much more interesting, dealing with the topic how he was 5'2 throughout high school and then on college he exploded to his supposed 6'1( I don't think he was less than 6' peak). Very interesting.
lgm said on 28/Jan/11
Costner was on Conan O'Brien's show & Conan remarked that he is always surprised at how short actors are & asked Kevin his height & he said he is 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jan/11
Nice one Vegas

Costner is looking 186-187cm range beside Ray Liotta
Vegas said on 15/Jan/11
must be on that box again :D Click Here
Lenad said on 14/Jan/11
He was only 1 inch under Connery in the untouchables
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jan/11
Can look 184cm a lot nowadays...but still looks 6"1 in general
James said on 10/Dec/10
He looked the same height as a weak 6'2 Sean Connery because he was standing straighter and with better posture.

6' even with Andy Garcia as well.
Aaron said on 9/Dec/10
He looks the same exact height as Sean Connery in some movies so i'd say at least 6'1 maybe even 6'2 with shoes on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Dec/10
I vaguely remember him saying 6"2 on the Oprah Winfrey Show...

In shoes he's 188cm
James said on 2/Dec/10
Trust me rampage if he was really 6'1 he would have said 6'2 or 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/10
He was probably generalising when he said 'Maybe I'm 6-feet'.

Looks 185/186cm in all honesty.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/10
James, believe what you want but personally I think Rob has Kevin Costner's height nailed. Isn't that right, Rob?
James said on 20/Nov/10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Nov/10
He looked a good 6"1 in The Untouchables beside a then 188/189cm Sean Connery.

LOL at Connery being 189cm in the Untouchables. More like 187/188cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Nov/10
He looked a good 6"1 in The Untouchables beside a then 188/189cm Sean Connery.
James said on 15/Nov/10
Well rampage in the Untouchables looked no more than an even 6'0.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/10
I think that's silly offense
James said on 9/Nov/10
5'11.75 now. 6'0 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/10
Costner just looks shorter now because he's heavier.

He's still around 6"1(185cm)
James said on 4/Nov/10
sorry hugh i meant to say mid to late 50's in Mr Brooks.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/10
James, you're wrong. William Hurt just turned 60 this year. At this point however he might be heading towards 6"1.5.
James said on 3/Nov/10
William hurt was in his mid to late 60's in Mr Brooks so he was probably about 6'1 1/2 in that film.
dmeyer said on 31/Oct/10
i met costner i walked by him a few times he was defenetly 6 ft 1 in 5 years ago when i met him similar height with eric dane and isiah washington i met the 3 of them at 5 ft 11.25 night time height i am in a good range to judge 6 ft 1 guys the best way to judge a 6 ft 1 guy height you have to 5 ft 11 to 6 ft 3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/10
But James, William Hurt is 6"2(188cm). Costner looked 1-2cm shorter than Hurt...
Bon said on 31/Oct/10
Very strong 6'1 at peak
James said on 28/Oct/10
yet rampage your forgetting how he was smaller than 186-187cm William Hurt
Rampage(\-_-_-/)Clover said on 27/Oct/10
In Mr Brooks he definitely looked 186-187cm range.

About 2 inches on Dane Cook whose not quite 6"0.
James said on 2/Jul/09
Thats my point Ali, that or Sean Connery is pushing 6'3 if were to belive Costner is or was at least 6'1 flat barefoot.
tom said on 2/Jul/09
He plays teh character Butch Haynes in the film ,A perfect world, And they describe him as 6'1.

Kevin Costner is a tall guy, around 6'1 definetley, Great Actor
Hugh 191cm said on 2/Jul/09
5ft11.5 is impossible. 6ft1 is definate. Ali thats rubbish.
Ali said on 1/Jul/09
He's not 6'1. Because In the movie
with Sean Connery who is 6'1(peak 6'1.5)he
is clearly an inch or more shorter.

He is 183cm max. He definitely is not 185cm.
He probably is 5'11.5 and with bigger shoes
manages 6'0.5

Definitely taller than you would expect. 6'1
is rubbish, impossible.
Frank2 said on 29/Jun/09
That's because he is 6'1".
Hugh 190cm said on 29/Jun/09
Costner still looks at least 6ft1 to me.
Frank2 said on 28/Jun/09
Jack, that wasn't Costner you were nose to nose with or you're a lot taller than you think. He's a solid 6'1".
DMEYER said on 28/Jun/09
i met costner in his fiftys he seemed to be six feet one at his lowest like night height morning probably six feet two
James said on 24/Jun/09
Maybe Hugh
Hugh 191cm said on 24/Jun/09
Connery might still have been 6ft2.5.
James said on 23/Jun/09
I don't. I think he looked 184cm if Sean Connery was only 6'2 then.
Midget said on 23/Jun/09
I agree with Hugh 190cm- He looked every bit of 186cm in The Untouchables movie and he was severely owning Andy Garcia. Still an inch or so under Connery though.
James said on 16/Jun/09
In the Unotouchables I saw 1 inch minimum between Costner and Connery.
Hugh 190cm said on 16/Jun/09
In the untouchables I saw 186-187cm
James said on 15/Jun/09
Alrigh Hugh I think maybe Costner was 186cm at his peak, MAYBE? And Ray Liotta was 5'11.75-6'0. And yes perhaps in the 1980's Sean Connery was 6'2.25?
Lenad said on 15/Jun/09
In the guardian I saw Costner 184-185cm and Kutcher 188-189cm
Hugh 190cm said on 14/Jun/09
In field of dreams Costner looked 6ft1.5 to 6ft2.
Hugh 190cm said on 14/Jun/09
James that sound accurate. Remember this was 1989 so Costner and liotta were definately at their peaks.
James said on 14/Jun/09
Liotta I think was around 6ft at his peak and is now 5'11.5.
Frank2 said on 12/Jun/09
Custner is 6'1" and Liotta is at minimum, 5'11" but remember, this was a movie. They pull all kinds of tricks. Perhaps they felt Liotta's character shouldn't look too tall since men were shorter when his character played baseball.
Hugh 190cm said on 11/Jun/09
Costner is slouching and still as 2 inches over Liotta. Liotta does look close to 6ft to me.
James said on 10/Jun/09
Who knows what the grounds like TELLEM
TELLEM said on 10/Jun/09
maybe liotta is 5'11 flat. Click Here
Hugh 190cm said on 9/Jun/09
6ft2 Phil? interesting to know. Certainly a solid 6ft1 at the least.
Hugh 190cm said on 9/Jun/09
nope. 2 inches.
James said on 8/Jun/09
Are u sure it wasn't 1.5 inches?
Phil said on 5/Jun/09
Met him this week in Niagara falls. He's a solid 6'1", if not 6'2"
