I think Kevin Spacey is 180 cm tall because i found out that Kevin Spacey is 1 m 80 in Film Bug. I will go for 5'10.75" for his height.

That website has been circulating for 15 years or more and it is beyond comical some of the figures they have. Spacey and Mel Gibson come in at 5ft11, Paul Walker is 6ft4, Quentin Tarantino is 6ft2½ Michael Gambon and Dennis Quaid are 6ft2...then on the flipside Bill Murray is 6ft and Jon Hamm is 5ft11
Sinclair said on 31/Mar/22
Perhaps right in the middle of 5’9” and 5’10” once upon a time, but these days he would be fortunate to still hit 5’9”. 5’9.5” is the absolute most I could buy for his peak.
LeaningTower said on 23/Dec/21
Deceptively tall, about 5'9.5"
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Jul/21
Whoah! He looks much taller, or is it just me? 🤷‍♀️

I think it's time to dig out my copy of 'Seven'.... 😉

AlexJau said on 29/Jun/21
In the film See No evil Kevin looks much smaller than Gene & Richard who both were billed as 5.10ft I would say 5.8 ft!
Slim 6'1.5 said on 13/May/21
176.5 downgrade necessary IMO
MaskDeMasque said on 21/Feb/21
He always looks between 5'9 and 5'10 in his films. 5'9.5 peak.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Jul/20
🎂🎁🎈🍻 Happy Birthday Kevin! 🍻🎈🎁🎂

Congratulations to Kevin Spacey, who celebrates his 61st Birthday today. I must say, he does come over as fairly tall in the above picture. My favourite of his films simply has to be the shocking movie 'Seven', followed by 'American Beauty', a tale about a man who's going through a rather turbulent midlife crisis, and falls for a young girl in his daughter's school class. 🤭

Kevin gets 5ft10 as his Birthday Guess. Cheers, Kevin and enjoy your Birthday! 🍻😄👌 XXX

@Willis Christian Macaraig

Gabriel Byrne is listed 5'10 1/4 not 5'10 3/4 not 180cm. Spacey is clearly shorter than him in and out of the famous movie The Usual Suspects. This year Gabriel is 70 and Spacey is 61 they could even half inch
lower than Rob listed them so let alone 180cm that is way exaggerated.
Willis Christian Macaraig said on 27/Apr/20
Looks 180 cm to me.
Willis Christian Macaraig said on 27/Apr/20
I think Kevin Spacey is 180 cm tall because i found out that Kevin Spacey is 1 m 80 in Film Bug. I will go for 5'10.75" for his height.
Willis Christian Macaraig said on 27/Apr/20
Kevin Spacey is 5'10.75" or 180 cm and also he is the same height as Gabriel Byrne.
Blanc said on 22/Apr/20
I would never have thought he was this tall, he looked short on House of Cards
Willis Christian Macaraig said on 15/Mar/20
My guesses for how tall are the 5 main actors of the Usual Suspects
Kevin Spacey-5'10.75" or 5'11"(180 cm)
Gabriel Byrne-5'10.75" or 5'11"(180 cm)
Benicio Del Toro-6'2.75" or 6'3"(190 cm)
Stephen Baldwin-5'10.75" or 5'11"(180 cm)
Kevin Pollak-5'6.75" or 5'7"(170 cm)
Nik said on 20/Jan/20
He's above average for his age!
Gregory K said on 18/Jan/20
I acted with him on stage about ten years ago. A lot taller and stronger built than he appears on screen. He is easily 5ft 10.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Nov/19
Strange that Jamie Foxx look a strong 1/4 taller than Spacey recently.
Nik Ashton said on 19/Oct/19
He’s above average!
5ft10ish guy said on 18/Oct/19
Significantly average type guy...not tall,not short just average...I agree with the 177.2 estimation Rob.

🎁🕯️🎂 Happy Birthday Kevin! 🎂🕯️🎁

Kevin turns the big 6️⃣0️⃣ today. The first time I saw him act, in 'Seven', I was intrigued, and he hasn't disappointed since.

Have a great day Kev!


Bradley said on 11/Jul/19
Funny how 13 years ago G had this guy dead to rights. Frank2 also had him nailed. Too bad nobody stopped him back in the day but then money buys off lots of things. He's 5-10.
brazilianwasp said on 9/Mar/19
In the movie American Beauty, next to Wes Bentley (1.78cm), Kevin seems to be 1.74cm or a little less.
Ian555 said on 27/Jan/19
Rob do you think Spacey is guilty of all the things he is accused of doing? I have great respect for the guy as an actor being a fan of House of Cards but in my opinion, he’s a bit of a creep. He looks 5’ 9-10 range to me in House of Cards so I think your listing is fair.
Editor Rob
There are many bad apples in Hollywood, who have got away with all sorts of stuff over the years. For some, it's now caught up with them. I think differentiating acting performances from what people do outwith their work is more tricky for people at times, especially when it is potentially criminal behaviour.

As for his height, anywhere from 5ft 9 to 10 has been arguable during his peak 30-45 age range.
Danimal 5'9 3/4" said on 11/Jan/19
He's around 60 years old now, so while he might have been 5'10" in his prime, he's probably closer to 5'9"-5'9 1/4" today.
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Oct/18
@Junior: Did you look at the two pics? Jamie is shorter than Kevin in them, not taller. If Jamie has been wearing thicker heels a lot these days then that would basically prove he's not above 5'9". Kevin could definitely be that height now, though.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Oct/18
If Jamie Foxx do wear thicker heels nowadays that i would leave him 5'9 1/2 and Spacey must be 5'9 1/4 now.
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Oct/18
Funny enough, when the stuff with Spacey broke, I remembered Glenn telling me years ago that Spacey was said to like "young surfer types" and while I always figured Spacey was gay even before that, but thought young meant young adult. Guess young was an understatement! I liked Glenn, but this was also another one of Glenn's famous "I don't care what he claims, he's taller and doesn't know his own height." Btw, I'd generally peg Spacey somewhere between 5'9"-5'9.5" myself, but Jamie Foxx is not taller: Click Here Click Here Jamie is definitely not 177 cm. More like 175, but Spacey could be 176.

Another exclusive that night in 1999,was Omar Epps and Lance Bass all telling me 5-10.all 3 hang out buddies of mine.2 out of the 3,queerer than a 3 dollar bill.true story.

Glenn was right about this
viper said on 13/Oct/18
In midnight Garden of Good and Evil he looks 5 inches shorter than 6-2 listed John Cusack. So he looks 5-9 in that movie
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Sep/18
I make a mistake. Jamie edge him a little more like half inch. Spacey 176cm and Jamie 177cm.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Jul/18
5'9.75" peak, 5'9.25" now. Look exactly same height eye to eye with Jamie Foxx.
Canson said on 5/Jun/18
5’9.5 peak
Santos said on 28/May/18
Rob, would you recognize him as an honest guy regarding to his claim ? He only off by 0,6 mm from his claim.
Editor Rob
It's a reasonably honest claim, I think he looks over 5ft 9 (well at least did during his 30's and 40's), but not quite a full 5ft 10 for me...but enough to tell people you are 5ft 10.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/May/18
Spacey did not edge Jamie Foxx. They were close in height. Spacey could be 5'9 1/4 now and Foxx at his low 5'9 1/4 too never a flat 5'9.
LT said on 1/Mar/18
@Paleman that’s not what he said he mentioned that spacey DID edge out Jamie foxx in baby driver not WOULD because he did in baby driver.
Paleman said on 22/Feb/18
"Obviously what he did was abhorrent but he would still edge out..." Yeah, no kidding? How does anything he did change his height? This is a site about discussing heights, and nothing more. Did us finding out that he committed sexual assault suddenly cause him to shrink in real life? Of course not. He could do it with the dead and still be the same height, obviously, and so we should still give honest guesses of his height. If Rob had a page for Adolf Hitler we would still be entitled to give honest guesses because what we're discussing here is HEIGHT, and that is not affected by what someone does. Come on you stupid idiots, get a brain.
Editor Rob
Look at this lineup With Spacey, Thierry Henry, Penny, Rod, Prince Charles and a few others.

Actually Thierry looks near 6ft 2 there, for once he stood tall. Spacey might edge out Charles.
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/18
rob how much would you say spacey weighed . he always seemed average build . probably around 170s to 180s. he looked little thinner in the 80s in the movie dad he looked 150-160. he has a bit of gut but I wouldn't say hes overweight
Editor Rob
I'd say in the 170's was a decent estimate...not skinny, pretty average build.
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/18
Obviously what he did was abhorrent but he still did edge out Jaime foxx in there standoff scene in baby driver.
brian said on 4/Jan/18
john you clearly didnt get that it was a joke
Canson said on 1/Jan/18
@John: agreed but at the same time a lot of people tend to go in the other direction and inflate celebs that they like. Either way is wrong and is very silly. But to be honest a case for 5’9” can be made. Although in Negotiator he could look near 5’10 at times but that was 20 years ago
andre said on 20/Dec/17
he rob, now in 2017, what do you think his height is in centimeters ? 175 cm or 176 cm ? Thank you and I'm wating a response from you :) He barely lookS 175cm in house of cards.
Blake said on 9/Dec/17
Rob, has the average guess on his height dropped due to all the allegations against him recently would you say?
Editor Rob
it may well, but I think in last few years he has began looking nearer 5ft 9 than say 5ft 9.5 range.
Slim 186 said on 4/Dec/17
176 range tops and probaly a shrinkage to 175 now at age 58 🤮 🤢

Editor Rob: I can understand Ridley doing that, makes sense for a movie since many would boycott.

But removing him from celebheights, of course not...

Yeah,the site has guys like Hitler and Stalin so why should he remove him,its a height site and the guy is appeared in famous movies i don't see why he should be removed.
Adamz said on 9/Nov/17
176.5cm 69.5
Canson said on 9/Nov/17
I think this is too high maybe strong 5’9”. Looked it with Samuel l Jackson and David morse
Allie said on 8/Nov/17
You know the saddest thing was this was an open secret. It was all over the gossip sites and even Seth McF made a joke about it.

I use to never believe those gossip sites but the amount of gossip that ended up being true was heartbreaking,

Anyways 176 cm.
Alex said on 7/Nov/17
What a pathetic, pitiful man. For that, I downgrade him

ROB, you should read the recent news about him. 🤢.

176 maximum.
Editor Rob
yeah, his own house of cards has crumbled.
Johan said on 3/Nov/17
5'9" with a huge ego, the truth will always surface .
Editor Rob
a lot of these big names think they are untouchable and can get away with awful behaviour.

as for Spacey, well I'm not sure he'll be making any tv or film any time soon. In House of Cards he could look at a flat 5ft 9 a fair bit.
Anonymous said on 22/Oct/17
I believe he was 5'10 ft I think he is honest. To me he looked a strong 5'10 next to Kevin Kline (6'2 feet) in "consenting adults" movie.

Nowadays 5'9 is right!
Bobby said on 9/Oct/17
He looks 6ft here. He claims 5'10 though, which is very honest. Only a quarter inch round up, not a big deal. I fall to that zone and also claim 5'10.
Tom said on 13/Sep/17
Hey Rob , I was invited by Kevin to be part of his art of acting class awhile back and I'm 1.79m barefpot min and I could see I was taller so maybe 1.75 or 1.76 for him
Editor Rob
it's beleivable he can look about 5ft 9 these days.
highlysuspect said on 23/Aug/17
Peak 177, now around 175
Mr.Kenobi said on 1/Aug/17
5ft 9.75in? = Tallest 5'8.5" guy I've seen... ;)
Podrick said on 5/Jun/17
I'm 5'9.5", and this guy is not 5'10", at least not nowadays. He seems slightly shorter than i would near to 6 foot/ 5'11" guys. I'd say he's around 5'9" and may have been taller in the past (5'9.5" max)
Jjak said on 2/Jun/17
Looks below average most time I'd bet 5 9 in shoes.
He has looked this height since the 80s with varying posture.
He was no taller than guy pierce under Pryor oddly close to crowe..
He also has tiny feet not that they determine height but funny fact.
Weak 5 9 peak tops can look under I wager Jude Law might look right over his head at 510.
Universe said on 28/May/17
Ho Rob.. what do you mean when you say that a man "has Lost a fraction"? How much in cm is a fraction?
Editor Rob
in many cases a 1/4 inch or so.
Jerry said on 2/May/17
He's a very cofusing height. He can seem 5'8" at times but then pulls off near 5'10" with taller actors. As Frank Underwood he does seem a little under average for an american male, so maybe 5'9" is a good shout nowadays with 5'9.5" as his peak height without slouching
Alex said on 22/Apr/17
5'9 based on horrible bosses but not below that.
Guanzo said on 19/Apr/17
He looks 6'1'' in Call of Duty Advanced Warfare =)

A lot of downgraders over here. I think he's obviously over 5'9".

Solid 5'9 to me. No more, no less. how big do you think his head is? Length wise?

Spacey is really 5'9 and looks it with a 5'11 chinese actor name Hu Ge
Arthur said on 28/Oct/16

Simon Baker is holding his shoes in that shot if you notice, so he is barefooted afainst Spacey.

177 cm is fair for Spacey at his prime

Didn't seem to be much difference between him and Frank Whaley in 'Swimming With The Sharks.'

Rob, could we give Reg E. Cathey a page?

I'd start him at 6ft
Mike said on 24/Aug/16
5ft 9.5 max peak and maybe 5ft 9 now. Denis Leary (who was maybe 6ft 1-1.5 range) towered over him in The Ref.
Phil said on 1/Aug/16
Rob, how tall would you say these 2 guys beside Kevin Spacey look in this video? Click Here

I think they both look around 5'8" with him (so about 1.75 inches shorter). Is that about right?
Editor Rob
the guy on left might be a bit taller than the middle guy who looks possibly somewhere in 5ft 8 range (spacey today can certainly look not that much over 5ft 9, he might have lost a fraction).
Alex said on 3/Jul/16
He is a weak 5'9.
Francis said on 7/Jun/16
5'8.5 in House of cards

no way he is that near to 5'10 these days
ajax said on 30/May/16
Click Here (guy pearce is at least 2cm taller than him here)
Click Here (arguably 5'9.5 simon baker clearly taller than kevin)

i don't know much about his past, he could have been really 5'10 or near that
but today he is fat and has a terrible posture. nowadays 5'9 is a stretch for him
truth said on 27/May/16
Legit 5'9.5" guy now and 5'9.75" peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/16
I would guess a strong 6ft/weak 6ft1 for Cathy at peak. Looks about 185cm w/h Spacey...
Paleman said on 23/Mar/16
Maybe add a page for Reg E. Cathey, Rob? In House of Cards he looks like a weak 6 footer, but 15-20 years ago he did look like a solid 6'1". Dropped an inch or so with age...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/16
You know, he actually can look still this range on HOC. In fact, he can even look the full 5ft10 in some scenes.

could be near 6ft, or even 15-20 years ago around it
Paleman said on 19/Feb/16
Doesn't look 5'10". I've always thought of Spacey as a strong 5'9", something like 176-177 cm - looks the exact same height as Bob Odenkirk. I think 5'9" flat is too low, but the current listing is a good shout.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/16
5ft10 range 15-20 years is arguable...
S.J.H said on 11/Feb/16
No way he is near 5'10. He look at least 5.5" shorter than 6'2.5 brandon routh. Flat 5'9 or max 5'9.25
jtm said on 8/Dec/15
5'10 is believable if robin wright is 5'5.5 but she isn't.
MaskDeMasque said on 6/Dec/15
I've always thought he looked 5'9.5 tbh.
zyzzbraah said on 23/Nov/15
man he looks short af in house of cards

is 5'8 absurd for him?
BT said on 31/Aug/15
I'm not sure he's lost more than 0.5in, and he has looked alarmingly near 5'9 for a number of years now, even appearing a little under that with a loose stance at times. 5'9.5 peak and 5'9 today is my guess, optionally 5'9.75 peak and 5'9.25 today.
Owen said on 4/Jul/15
looks more 5'9 than 5'9.75
he is significantly shorter than 5'10 or almost guys like charlie cox and paul wesley
Click Here
Click Here

And personally I think Cox is between 5'9.25-5'9.75, making Spacey goes to 5'8.5

But suposing Cox and wesley as 5'10, Spacey should be downgraded to 5'9. At least nowadays
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/15
Rob is 178cm peak possible and maybe 176-177cm today?
Editor Rob
don't think he's lost more than maybe a small fraction, I don't think he really looked 5ft 10 range 20 years back.
Anton said on 30/Jun/15
He's a short dude, probably around 5'9 or weak 5'10.
Rick said on 30/May/15
Spacey looks quite average on House of Cards, probably 5'9.
Andrea said on 22/Apr/15
Well, with Michael Rosenbaum, it was in 2006... And he could look a good couple inches shorter than him in some pictures! I doubt he'd lost more than a small fraction by 47... Maybe a fraction over 5'9 at "peak" and now not over 5'9...
Andrea said on 21/Apr/15
Arch, you can also see him with guys that Rob has met like Michael Rosenbaum and Brandon Routh... He can really look not (much) over 5'9 with them! Rob, what about 5'9.25? Around 5'10 in shoes...
Editor Rob
he could have lost a fraction by now and be nearer 5ft 9
Arch Stanton said on 20/Apr/15
How long do you think Sting's face is? He's long had a very high forehead but with a beard it accentuates it. He looks like one of thosechess grandmasters now with the great heads like a Bobby Fischer!
Editor Rob
it could be 9.7-9 range but the beard has an extra inch to his chin.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Apr/15
Rob, perhaps it's time for a downgrade now to 5'9. Check out Click Here with Sting! And we've seen Sting look 5'10 range of late too! He makes Sting look a full 6 ft.

Jason bateman only look a solid 2cm top on Kevin Spacey. Bateman is 5'11 and Kevin Spacey should be what he claim 5'10
cole said on 27/Jan/15
@Editor Rob: Think a cm loss is quite likely given his age and poor posture over the years? He can look more 174 cm range with sloppy posture but measured height would probably be nearer 176 cm today, looked a decent 177 cm in his prime.
Editor Rob
1cm by now could be possible for him.
kap said on 22/Jan/15
@ Realist, I agree, was here to comment on that myself. Shahid is no more than 5'7.5 or 5'7.75 .. Spacey looked 1.5 inches taller than Shahid and Farhan at those awards. Plus, if you looked closely, Shahid had better footwear, bigger heel. Shahid has even claimed 5'10, ridiculous.

@ MD Seems like Dev might be 5 inches taller than Spacey if he stood up straight since Dev is leaning, loose posture.

Rob can you add a photo and some more films like Se7en, Glengarry Glen Ross, Pay it Forward, Superman Returns, and Casino Jack? And also add He is also known for the voice of the robot GERTY in the film Moon and for his role as Frank Underwood in the TV series House of Cards.

On HoC he looks more 173-174cm. Sometimes like 175 tops
JB said on 1/Sep/14
5'9" makes more sense. On House of Cards most people are taller than him yet he still maintains an average look.

175 or 176cm tops.

He's not this close to 5'10 unless he slouches badly. He definitely looks more 5'9 flat most of the time.
bodwaya said on 3/Jun/14
he was 1 inch shorter then copper in american beauty so 5 foot 9 bang on
Realist said on 22/May/14
Rob, he went to the IIFA(indian awards) this year. He is dancing with an actor Shahid Kapur. Both have similar shoes. That guy is max 5'8 and Kevin looked about 0.5-1 inch taller. So probably Kevin is around 5'9. My guess is 171 for shahid and 174 for spacey.
Levin said on 25/Apr/14
I got this picture form Kevins official site: Click Here

Here he's with
Tobey Maguire( 171/172 cm)
Rob Lowe( He claims to be 179cm but come on.. He's nowhere near 179 range.. Seeing as how he's head to head with Tobey)
And lastly Kevin, I'd say he's somewhere from 171cm to 173cm tops, no way this guy is even close to 177cm range, hell I wouldn't say he's close to 175cm range either.. Just seeing him with Tobey, yeah..
What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob
well on his page here he is listed 5ft 10, but his actual claim is 5ft 11.75! That might be a pavement, it could be sloping a little, I don't know.
Han said on 10/Apr/14
Rob, it looks like you wrote the title of the movie 'The Usual Suspects' as The Unusual Suspects here.
Anyways, he looks around 5ft 9 to me
cole said on 7/Apr/14
@MD: He's lucky to hit 5'9 with Patel, yeah. He has appeared anywhere in the 5'8.5 - 5'9 range to me for a number of years now. Maybe he was 5'9.5 or so at his peak, but he's definitely not that tall now.

PeyoteTimes said on 9/Dec/13
C'mon guys...If you look at all the legit evidence (ie no guessing on footware) over the years, you give him max 5.9 1/4 evening height...I won't buy that it's more than 5.9 1/2 or less than 5.8 1/2. My guess is barely 5.9
MD said on 21/Nov/13

With 6'1.75" Dev Patel:

Kevin is not almost 5'10". He's lucky if he's a full 5'9". He's almost 5'9".
averagegiant said on 18/Nov/13
in house of cards he's nearly shorter than everyone, most tower. 177 seems far fetched. I'd venture to say he's not hitting 5'9 and he never has.
Silent d said on 21/Oct/13
About the same height as gabriel byrne in the usual suspects and a little shorter than steven baldwin. Benicio del toro was about 12m taller than him. I always thought he was 5 foot 8 but 176cm seems better.
Lore said on 13/Oct/13
In See no evil ear no evil he is as tall as Billy Wilder wich is shown 1.70 in front of the police line for photos. So he is 1.70 or around
MAria said on 27/Aug/13
Sometimes , i think he is 173 cm ( Wiseguy)
Sometimes he is Taller: American Beauty 178 cm, And More or More Tall Horribles bosses 182 cm, i see it Like this
Shib said on 19/Jul/13
I worked as an extra on "House of Cards". I'm a little over 5'10" and he's at least as tall as me. I'd say 5'10.5" or 5'11'. He's taller than he looks on screen.

Unless he wore .75" lifts in Horrible Bosses, I wouldn't say anything less than 5'10.5".

He looked surprisingly short next to 180 cm Wes Bentley in American Beauty. maybe 175 cm.
John D said on 10/Feb/12
Looks shorter than he actually is for some strange reason. Maybe because he carries most of his weight in his stomach area?

In The Negotiator, he looks well under 5'9", maybe 5'7"-5'8" especially compared to the other actors like 6'2.5" Samuel L. Jackson.

I use to think he was 5 foot 8 but after watching some movies and next to bateman he looks 5 foot 10. 177cm is about right.

Why is there so much conspiracy theory that all actors wear lifts? ALl of em. Maybe not all of em are as obsessed about height as you celeb height regulars in here.

Spacey doesn't wear lifts. Glenn said that to justify his inflating Spacey to 5'11 (because of his own self-inflation to 5'8). Spacey always appears 5'9 to 5'10 or lower with terrible posture.

Spacey at 5'11 and Pearce at 6'0? Hilarious.

glenn says on 21/Nov/08
with all due respect.dont tell me what celebs state themselves at.

See, this is the problem. He would even contradict celebrities when they themselves claim a lower height than what he "estimated". This "I don't care" attitude really said a lot about his ego.

in the recount tv movie, he looked 2 inches taller than 5'8 John Hurt, or mabye a little bit more. He looks an strong 5'9 guy, close to 5'10 , if not a 5'10 guy.
Bouncer said on 31/Dec/08
I guess spacey nothing less than 5'8.5 and nothing more than 5'10. Probably a strong 5'9 or weak 5'10.
He can give lots of height illusions, because he slouches nearly all the time.
But that 5'4 claim for spacey is one of the ridicolousest height claims i heard in my entire life! XD
I really want to know which media described that!
mcfan said on 9/Dec/08
Here's the thing: In "Usual Suspects" when he would occasionally stand up straight, he was Gabriel Byrne's height who is listed as 5'10.25. Then that should be his height then. The police line up confirms Byrne's height of around 5'10.25. (To me, he looks 5'10.5) Therefore, Spacey has to be 5'10.25-5'10.5.
glenn said on 28/Nov/08
at least you see what i mean that he could look 5-11 at times.
Anonymous said on 28/Nov/08
Kevin Spacey is a weird one to figure out. Having just seen Fred Klaus last night, he actually really did look 5'11" next to Vince Vaughan. Then looking at him in American Beauty, he really looked a weak 5'9". I wouldn't rule out the possiblity of lifts for Spacey though (if, at the very least, next to Vaughan). 5'10" it is.
glenn said on 22/Nov/08
dr-morton saw kevin spacey looking 5-11 here in new york as convinced he is more than 5-10.if not has to actually see these celebs in the flesh.i have one pic with spacey where he does look 5-11,cause he is slouching alot with me.woody harrelson also claims 5-9,and is 5-10.5,5-11.i saw him in the same sandals for a week.sometimes people dont know their own height.and i sqaushed the myth of lifts for woody too.i was made fun of for believing he was more than 5-9 on this site for months.then came up with the photo please,with all due respect.dont tell me what celebs state themselves at.i myself thought spacey was 5-9 for years too.

Pearce stated he was 5'10, and looks that height. Kevin Spacey also stated himself as 5'10, so he certainly would not be 5'11.

He was fractionally shorter than self-described 5'10 Guy Pearce in LA Confidential. Also fractionally shorter than Chris Cooper in American Beauty who is less than 5'10. Plenty of visible full length scenes in each of those films. I think Spacey is a weak 5'10, 5'9.5 at lowest.
glenn said on 20/Nov/08
from what i recall his posture was horrendous in the height chart pic.actually looks 5-11 in the street.
mcfan said on 19/Nov/08
This guy's got really bad posture. He seems like he's 5'10. I don't know where people come up with 5'8. He's got 3 inches on Robin Williams. He can look 5'9 at times, but he's got a big head and slouches much like John Lennon did.
RICHARD said on 14/Nov/08
Here's what I see when I look at the Usual Suspects front cover

Benicio Del Toro-188m or 6'2
Kevin Spacey-170m or 5'7
Kevin Pollak-165m or 5'5
Stephen Baldwin-175m or 5'9
Gabriel Byrne-178m or 5'10

The only tall ones on the front cover are Del Toro and Byrne,yet the smallest is Pollak. Spacey looks average there only next to Baldwin so maybe the height chart was wrong or Spacey is really only 5'7

theres a guy who i work with who looks like a 5ft 7" from 30 feet away, but u stand next to him up close he's a good 5ft 9"

i'm 5ft 10.5
D. Ray Morton said on 1/Sep/08
He really, truly looked close to 5'11" when I met him last year. I'm not saying that 5'11" is necessarily his actual (barefoot) height. I'm just saying that, in person, on that particular evening, he was noticably taller than the 5'9"-5'9
Frank2 said on 31/Aug/08
Spacey is about 5'9". But then he's been known to wear lifts so he could be 5'8".

Did look 5'10" max next to 5'7" Helen Hunt. I can't help but laugh at Glenn bumping him up to 5'11". He can look it at times but come on... when the man himself says 5'10". *sigh* Another person Glenn was just trying to raise to boost himself.

i know, again with The Usual Suspects....but theres a part in the making of, where Spacey is perfectly straight against the wall and height chart, and he is still about 2 inches under the 6ft mark,....with shoes on. Meaning he really cant be more than 5'9 really....?

Spacey played a man with cerebral palsy in that movie so his one leg was bent and he was hunched almost the whole time. In the rare shots he stood up straight he looked the same as Gabriel Byrne, a strong 5'10. Fantastic actor.
Ant said on 23/Jun/08
Terry it's a film, no offence but height charts in films or promotion pic mug shots are not likely to be that accurate. So many people on here mention them there is one on Nicolas Cage's page which shows him under 6 feet when he clearly isn't. In usual suspects Spacey is hunched over most of the time he looks comfortably 5ft 10 maybe a little more.

Saw the movie "THE USUAL SUSPECTS" last night.Found both Kevin Spacey and Stephen Baldwin are of the same height.Baldwin is listed 175 cms in here,so I doubt about Spacey's extra listed 2cms.There was a mugshot scene where all the suspects were standing beside each other.Gabriel Byrne looked a legit 178 cms though.
dits said on 6/Apr/08
he looked weirdly short in 'the usual suspects',i thought he was a 5'5 or a 5'6 at max when i saw that movie (didnt pay attention to the scene where they stand against the height chart).he looks like a really small guy,more so accentuated by his voice.
Anonymous said on 1/Apr/08
llook at his shoulders, they are 2 inches higher than glenn's. it's obvious that he has bad posture- horrible, horrible posture. if he straightened his head back and stood up straight he'd be 5'10 and change.
Sid said on 31/Mar/08
he seemed cool, but again gotta stress he looks taller in person, if he said 5-11 I dunno but I prob would buy, minimum 177 on a bad day very tricky but I dont think more than 179. Having said that I was max 1.5in more than him.

i think he is 5-11 as of last year.i change my mind.d-ray saw him as this too.his horrendous posture make him shorter.

I would never buy 181-182 for spacey unless I saw it with my own eye.Never have I seen him at that height.doesn't look it to me. 179cm is maybe possible.
Franco said on 29/Aug/07
"glenn says on 22/Aug/07
he can look near 5-11."

thanks glenn, that's what i was saying. ;)

infact before 2004 he did look above 5-11 slightly around 181-182cm which is i think 5-11.5 or 5-11.75 (in shoes), after that he started looking a proper 179-180cm in shoes so that means he lost some height.

Hmmm... 176 cm. tall.

Glenn I'm so curious how tall exactly of Kevin Spacey.-

don't think he knows EXACTLY his height, but i think he know what he saw back there, remember Kevin had shoes, im curious though if they were suspect shoes ..hmm

actually giving him 176cm height currently is pretty accurate imo, he doesnt really strike me as a TALL guy, he is average. however no doubts he was 177cm or maybe even 178cm BEFORE 2004, because in 2004 i swear he looked 180cm with shoes (that had 3cm heels) and god knows what they had inside if anything.

before 2004 he mightve been 177 or 178cm no doubt mostly during the 90's and 2000/2001 possibly.

so yeah 176cm makes sense.
Peetie said on 22/Aug/07

Franco said on 22/Aug/07
Kevin Spacey was in Italy in 2004 for a short vacation and i saw him and back then he looked 180cm flat so i think the 177cm listing for Kevin is accurate although i have this feeling he lost 1cm and he is 176cm today. lifts not out of the question thats why sometimes he appear taller in ceremonies and sometimes he appears shorter.

im gonna say Kevin Spacey is 176-177cm but not more.

i agree with d-ray,he did look taller than usual least.i have another where he is slouching alot with me,1999.actually,on the street he isnt too cool,one on one.not easy to obtain a posed photo.he usually declines.notice the taller security behind us for scale.he was joking with me here.he took a photo with me in a crowd of 200 people,but turned his head fast.i complained,and he then said "im gonna stand here 5 minutes until you get your photo".all 200 people heard and laughed.nice in a crowd.i hung out with him alot back in 1999.doesnt remember me,nor am i interested.

Don't let the angle fool you. Look at at how high Spacey's shoulders are compared to Glenn's. He is 5'10".

From the picture he's 5'9 at most. Don't overlook that Glenn's closer to the camera. But I always thought he was 5'11!!!
D. Ray Morton said on 19/Aug/07
Given the weird angle of the photo, Spacey's posture, and where he is in the frame relative to Glenn, I still say 5'10". He looks potentially 2" taller than Glenn here.

When I met him, he looked huge. Could've been some shoe help there, but I'd still bet on 5'10".

What do you say, Glenn?
Maya said on 19/Aug/07
Great pic, Glenn! And I agree with your estimation, 5'10"-ish sounds correct for Spacey, as you are a bit closer to the camera.

Wait a second. On the cover of The Usual Suspects, Spacey's in a line up along with others. His height being at the 5'8-5'9 mark (and this included shoes).

Look at this pic of Spacey beside Routh. Unless Routh is much over 6'2 this pic makes Spacey look 5'8-5'9.

Editor Rob
remember superman boots are well designed to maybe give him a little extra imposingness.

But regardless though, I do see those frank2/glenn comments saying he is more in 5ft 9 range than 10 as being true. Just looking at those pics again of him in shoes beside that racing driver, who looks like he has no more than 1/2 inch shoes - and also claims 182cm - he appears near 5ft 9...:
