How tall is Kiefer Sutherland

Kiefer Sutherland's Height

5ft 8 ½ (174 cm)

British-born Canadian Actor best known for playing Jack Bauer on TV series 24. In film he is well known for appearing in The Lost Boys, Young Guns and Flatliners. He is quoted as saying he is '5ft 10', as in the 'cops' told him this when he was arrested and stood beside a chart. However, in a 1990 edition of Chronicle he mentioned his height: "I'm not a very tough person. I stand maybe 5 foot 9, but it's great to be the tough guy." On another occasion he mentioned how "People probably think I'm taller than I am [5-foot-9]".

Given the fact that my dad is 6ft 4in and all my brothers are 6ft 4in-plus, I wish I was taller.
-- The Guardian, 2017
I am five foot 10, so I can only run so fast and jump so high. With this character, I checked physicality at the door.
Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world...
I went and worked for [CEO and promoter] Vince McMahon at the WWE, for Christ's sake. But, at least he was cool and tall. I didn't have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do [at 24]. Just put the guy on an apple box or don't hire me next time. You know I'm 6 feet and he's 5ft 4ins.
-- Freddie Prinze Jr on Kiefer

Rob, i really dislike you giving freddie prinz junior a platform with his quote. He is a bully, how can you say a 5foot9 guy is 5foot4 without having bad intentions saying that? You should not have such a quote on your website.
Editor Rob
part of this site is documenting quotes and that sometimes includes those which aren't filled with positivity but are related to another celebrities height, like in this case, Kiefer's.

Now Kiefer is clearly not 5ft 4 - having spoken to him in person I can attest to this fact.

It does show up the person making the absurd claim in a bad light though. However, sometimes there can be obvious exaggarations with quotes, that if you heard it said in person would offer a different perspective than reading the line in your own manner.

And yeah, there's no way he's "5'4". There's simply no way you could shoot around that in an ensemble cast show also with so many additional scenes with large numbers of extras (24, I mean). Rewatching it, it seems more apparent that he's a bit on the shorter side of average. Back in the day, it seemed plausible enough that he's the 5'10 he was listed. Nowadays, 5'8 seems more likely to be accurate.

I don't know if the people who've seen him in person and say 5'4 really mean that, or mean it as a joke or just to underscore their point, but I just can't see that as being possible. Especially the taller you are yourself, it's REALLY hard to say exactly how much shorter someone you see is. I'm 182 cm (early/mid day, to emphasize and counter the other marks possibly not being absolute lows) and I know two guys who are 174 and 176 cm. Both of them to my eyes, close up, seem "short" and I couldn't estimate them with any reasonable accuracy. And neither of them are actually that short in absolute terms. It's simply that even the 5 cm difference seems like it's more... if you're purely guessing. Case in point: a friend, 192 cm tall also once guessed me at "178 cm".
Editor Rob
Freddy threw the 5ft 4 out there as a bit of a dig. I'll put the longer quote at the bottom as he suggested he did some scenes without shoes!
Visitor said on 19/Jun/20
Many scenes in 24 where he's briefing a group of SWAT guys or something similar, and he's very obviously "short" there. On the other hand, most of the main cast or otherwise regulars are closer to his height, a large part of them might even have been picked partly for that reason. Most of the women especially are very short, so that even though they are wearing obvious, regular heels (as opposed to lifts etc.) they still look substantially shorter. Same thing with Carlos Bernard. And in the majority of shots, no shoes are seen, I think the "have the taller guy take his shoes off" thing is used regularly and not only with Freddie Prinze Jr. Makes perfect sense from a photographing point of view, for example it's difficult to frame close-ups if the actors in question are 6" apart in height!

re: "not believable that he gets in fights with bigger dudes and knocks them out"... I disagree completely. Strength is not at all proportional to height in that way, I've never seen any study say that strength linearly correlates with height or ever personally seen anything to make me think that. The fact is, more or less, that men are (relatively) strong to begin with. Movies etc. make this seem like a joke to many people, but you really don't want any man to e.g. punch you full force in the head. Doesn't matter how much taller you are and whether or not he's 5'8 or 5'9. There's enough force there to cause a serious concussion or even something much worse if you're unlucky.

5’4”? No chance he’s that low
BooNow said on 25/May/20
I and MANY people I know have seen him in bars and/or been drinking with him... if my 5’6” friend was in front of him, you couldn’t see him because he REALLY is around 5’4”ish. I’m 5’9 and I’m taller than the people who were towering over him. This is the MAIN thing people who meet him IRL in flat shoes go on and on about... he’s so tiny. Nothing wrong with that. It’s Hollywood, everyone lies about age, height, or weight at some point. Any male actor I know under 5’9” puts 5’9” on their official stats if they think they can get away with it... it’s like the unofficial minimum casting height for guys, otherwise it can potentially limit how many auditions you get. The one thing I know for sure is that every guess they give in the drop down menu is too tall.

Strange comment saying he's 5'4''. Bad blood there I think. Obviously taller 5'9'' isn't unrealistic.

🎁🎂🎈 Happy Birthday Kiefer! 🎈🎂🎁

I am delighted to find that it's Kiefer Sutherland's 53rd Birthday today! While looking for any worthwhile snippets of information about his height, I came across some other exciting things instead. I mean, we know his height anyway, but I for one had no idea that Kiefer was born in St Mary's Hospital in London, England. (I've had stitches there in my big toe after walking swiftly into an empty bottle and shattering it!)

Then there's another amazing thing: Kiefer has FIVE 'middle' names, so his full name is Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland. That's quite a mouthful, containing each and every vowel and it's easier to state which letters AREN'T in his names than the ones which are! The only letters that don't get a look-in are B, J, Q, V, X and Z.

Kiefer followed his Dad into the film world, with films of a way above average quality. 'The Vanishing', 'Flatliners' and 'Mirrors' are all films quite capable of waking a person right up after a long day's slog, as happened to me when I first saw 'The Vanishing'. I was hunting for a copy for years, but that's because I didn't have access to the Internet.

Of course, Kiefer will have been compared unfavourably to his very tall father, who is around 7" taller, but so what? The two still look identical, and I bet that many people took him for a lad who was still sprouting for many years after he'd stopped growing, expecting him to reach nearer to Dad's height than he actually did!

Have a terrific time today Kiefer - you get the usual 5ft8.5. 😁👍

⭐ It's not the best idea to size up his height when he's in that huge deserted wreck of a building in the movie 'Mirrors'; anyone would look shrimpish in that haunted heap! 🧐🐟

Editor Rob
The Vanishing was one of his better films I thought. I'd read a few opinions about Kiefer in person with fans, but seeing him in person, he was rather friendly I thought...would I change his 5ft 8.5 listing he had for many years?

I'm not sure about that, I think he could measure it.
Gianb92 said on 19/Dec/19
Very strange his height
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Dec/19
What a revolting ending 'Mirrors' has! I saw it last night and thought the ending really was my idea of hell! Well, maybe not as bad as burning for eternity, but pretty grim nonetheless. 😱

Comparing Kiefer to the girl who plays his sister, Amy Smart, there looks to be about a 2.75-3" gap, yes. I shall give Kiefer 5ft8.5. What a brilliant, edge-of-your-seat performance!
Zeke said on 22/Aug/19
I figured he’d be at least 5’9-5’10”-ish considering his dad’s a bit tall, but I can totally relate when I say he got the short end of stick (no pun intended). And especially compared to his brother’s. Big Boss, everyone! (I kid, Kiefer’s a John).

2 inches shorter than Lou Diamond Philips

I see Lou is listed at 5'11" but looks more 5'10.5" to me at least nowadays. Only 57 yrs old but not impossible he lost a little.
Eric W Tam said on 6/Jul/19
Dang, all his brothers are taller than 6'4 and his father is 6'4? The unlucky guy probably got the short genes from someone in the family. (I could so picture his mother being 5'0 to 5'2 max now, lol). Guess he's not so much of a BIG boss after all.

I live in Toronto, Kiefer stay's with his Aunt while he's here, I can see her balcony from my balcony, and in High School, my sisters locker was right beside his locker, my sister is 5'5 1/2 and he was shorter than her at age 18, and I almost walked right into him last summer in on Queen street in Toronto, and I'm 5'6 he was shorter than me, and he was wearing shoes with a slight lift, so he's maybe 5'5 at best, and he's also TINY, in frame size, I could kick his
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Nov/18

He claimed 5'10" when he was arrested though.
TJE said on 7/Nov/18
For someone notorious for his ego, Kiefer's very honest about his height. You'd think he would insist that he's 5'10 or 5'11.
Jackson Six said on 9/Sep/18
Looks in the 5-7 to 5-8 range.
EthanCouch said on 5/Aug/18
Hey Rob, do you think he’s a weak 5’8?
Editor Rob
No, I can't see Kiefer that short, even on Designated Survivor still seemed in 5ft 8 range.
MAD SAM said on 20/Jun/18
Freddy sure did insult his height, he gets 174 cm from me
MrFish said on 31/May/18
Rob, how tall did he look in Designated Survivor?
Editor Rob
Generally I'd say about 173.5-4cm range
Sandy Cowell said on 6/May/18
Here we have a son who is SEVEN inches shorter than Dad! Another incredible finding to say the least! Other than that, they look exactly the same!

Kiefer gets 5ft8.5 from me this Sunday! I get a most unwelcome and rather smelly wash from ginger tomcat Pixie!

DT said on 7/Feb/18
"... often called for him to fist fight with other men - men who were often bigger than he was. He looked a little silly. Action heroes need to be six feet tall."

The only thing that's silly is the above quote, PLB. Fighting has almost nothing to do with height, and it's certainly not even close to being deciding factor in who wins.
annymoud said on 15/Jan/18
rob how tall would u say kefier mom and twisn sister is in this pic I say his mom is 5 foot(probably where keifer got his height) his sister is probably 5 foot 6 or 5 foot7 .Click Here:
Editor Rob
His sister isn't that much shorter, maybe near 5ft 7 and Mother probably closer to 5ft to 5ft 1 range.
Seb said on 23/Oct/17
Just saw the Sentinel. Keifer and Michael Douglas looked about the same height. First Keifer looked a shade taller then Michael did. I'd say neither was ever taller than 5'8". But, hey, I never stood next either of them. Enjoyed the movie.

thing is, generally speaking... america is overweight
KH said on 5/Oct/17
Well just think about it he has admitted in the past to weighing something around 140lbs. Im sorry but that is really light for an adult male that was 5'9. Average height weight in America is rougly 175lbs and 5'9.5. I doublt much more then 5'8.
Marquis said on 1/Sep/17
5'8" on a good day.
Cameron said on 27/Aug/17
I guess his mom must be really short. I've seen a 6'4" dad and a 4'11" mom have a 5'9" son. That's quite common.

Incredible Rob!

Son is shorter than his father! just about 16 cm!!!

Surprisingly, Kiefer does appear about the same height as Michael Douglas in a series of photos promoting Flatliners in 1991.

It's unfortunate we can't see footwear or full pics, but either man can appear taller depending on the photo, which typically suggests the difference wasn't big. Douglas was a known lift wearer and imo, about 5'9" flat. Kiefer is likely a half inch shorter and to my knowledge, doesn't wear lifts, but has liked cowboy boots. By 2005, both looked the same in normal shoes - 174 cm.
RisingForce said on 24/Jun/17
This is listing is spot on. He's clearly smaller than 5'9", but he measures up better to others than just a flat 5'8". Claiming he's "maybe" 5'9" suggests he was rounding up as well. He was slightly taller than Robert Downey Jr. in the 1988 film "1969." He can pass for his 5'9" claim, though, especially since he's worn cowboy boots, but 5'10" was really pushing it.
Theo said on 24/May/17
Watching Designated Survivor and I am wondering if hey intentionally cast all tall people to make him look small and weak early on and if they will progressively cast shorter people as his "stature" as a character grows. It the only explanation I can think of. Everyone towers over him, even minor characters that could easily be cast with just about anyone. They seem to make little effort to use camera angles o mask this either. If tou watch movies with short stars like Tom Cruise, there always shorter people around him, even if he is just walking through a crowd. Must be intentional. Great show BTW!
Bee123 said on 7/May/17
Freddie's got a right to be annoyed but I think 5'4 is a bit low lol
Editor Rob: it's a low blow, like someone calling Tom Cruise 5ft 5. Completely ludicrous, but then, the more often some people say a height or are associated with a height, the greater it sticks in people's minds.
Jerry said on 7/Mar/17
I am totally surprised that Kiefer and I am the same height. His comment that most people think he is taller is totally accurate, at least for me. I wonder if it is because his father is tall that I assumed Keifer is too. MAY I JUST SAY I FIND THIS WEBSITE TO BE TOTALLY FASCINATING!
Christian said on 28/Dec/16
Hey Rob!
Didn´t you have a link years ago to a video where Kiefer said he is five eight? I swear I have seen a video where he is saying that.
Editor Rob: Christian, I can't remember if this exists or not!

Nik said on 27/Nov/16
I have always been more or less the same height as my Dad (171 cm) throughout my adult life. I was the same height as my Dad when I was in my late 20's even though at this time my Dad was in his 60's. Also my Dad was a flat 5'8" or maybe slightly more when he was at his peak.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Nov/16
What's with this "usually" James? I don't know many guys who are the same height as their father in fact. Some end up much taller.
james said on 25/Nov/16
Usually the Son is his father's height or an inch taller ..Donald was 6'2 at his peak
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Nov/16
I wonder if his Mum is small as Kiefer doesn't get his height from his Dad! He does get his looks from Donald though, there's no denying that! He's also in some fantastic films. I thought 'Mirrors' was excellent and so were 'Flatliners' and 'the Vanishing.'
Dennis said on 20/Nov/16
Watch him in Designated Survivor, he looks much smaller than 5'9".

Odd but in Young Guns I thought Kiefer looked a bit taller than Charlie Sheen!! Might have been ground level though.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Jul/16
Rob, worth adding a photo?
Editor Rob: hopefully within a year the majority will have some sort of photo, even just to put name to face!
Michaeljrocks said on 1/Jun/16
Has anyone seen Zoolander2? There is a very interesting long shot of Keifer in boots standing face to face with a barefoot Owen Wilson. Barefoot Wilson apears to have nearly 3inches over a booted Sutherland.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/16
No, Donald cleared 6ft3 at peak. Watch MASH. At least 1in over Gould (6ft2-2½) and Alda (6ft2). Could even pull off 6ft4 occasionally. Kiefer's mother is about 5ft tall. So I think that might explain why he's not taller. Aswell, his so-called "taller brothers" are only his half-brothers. Donald's second wife looks 5ft8ish...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/16
174/175cm range I believe
datguy said on 18/Jan/16
Hey rob do think it was possible that he could've been 5'9 in his prime since he has a very bad smoking habit.
Editor Rob: he could look 5ft 9 at times, but I think he was somewhere in that 174 range. I suppose you could say smoking and playing physical roles for 10 years through your 40's could have a little effect like a fraction loss.
Andrea said on 12/Jan/16
Rob, do you think Kiefer is height aware? He doesn't seem at all to me... He also seems very honest about his height (well, at least when he said to be around 5'9)!
I've seen a couple interviews with him and he seems a very nice guy! Don't know what happened with Freddie...
Editor Rob: I think it might play on his mind with his Father and brother being tall.
Andrea said on 22/Nov/15
Well, in that pic he must be losing 5 inches? He doesn't look much over 5'9! Can you find pictures of Donald looking more than 5 inches taller than Kiefer or he was already not over 6'1-6'1.5 when Kiefer was born?
Editor Rob: I haven't looked deeply, the last thing I rewatched with Sutherland was the 1978 Invasion and seeing him with Goldblum and Nimoy, you could argue he wasn't over 6ft 3.
Andrea said on 20/Nov/15
For those who say that his father is much taller than him: Click Here
They really don't look much different :)
Rob, do you think Donald might be 5'9 today?
But seriously there many pictures where he can look 3-4 inches taller, maybe closer to 5 in some but certainly not a huge difference as some said...
Editor Rob: he can look 6ft range today although still drops a few inches to be nearer Kiefer. Donald's posture over the years might have effected his overall loss.
Andrea said on 22/Oct/15
Just started watching 24 (well, not really "just" since i'm already at season 3) and 5'8.5 seems a fair listing! He can look anywhere between 5'8 and 5'9... Wouldn't be surprised if he was just a solid 5'8, like Rob, though! Not a chance he's as low as 5'6 or 5'7, like some people tried to say or as big as 5'10-5'11... Funny how that guy Freddie Prinze called him 5'4, he must have been very angry to him!
Rob, have you watched all the seasons? Did you enjoy the show? I like it, even if it seems a bit repetitive at times and Jack becomes more and more "immortal" through the series xD
[Editor Rob: yes, Freddy maybe was going for the over dramatic.

There's only so many types of stories you can do within the 24 world, but I thought it was enjoyable. Like anything, I turn my brain down a few notches watching shows. That way I still can get surprised at plot twists...]

He always gave a short impression to me. Doesnt help either that Freddy Prince Jr ( 6 foot) claims that he had to remove his shoes when working with him. He also said that he was like 5ft 4 in.

In Young Guns he is shorter than 5'9 Charlie Sheen i think he is 5'8 max. Rob Would be very similar.

In the first season wearing normal shoes can realy look about 5'9 its possible he lost 0.25in

Everyone on set walks behind him to make him look taller. All the women are tiny and i would say tall actors have to walk in a trench. He always walks on a hill when outside. He is about 5ft and i would say incredibly arrogant and vain.

Your whole paragraph, including putting him at 5'0" is arrogant.

He get's described as 5'11" a couple times on 24, but he obviously isn't quite that tall. He also appears to edge out Carlos Bernard.

Rob, do you think it's possible he could be a flat 5'9"? I think he can look shorter than that on 24, but most of the other male actors on it do look 6'0"+ most of the time.

Great actor though, absolutely love 24.

Keifer gets his height from his mother's side of the family. His grandfather, Tommy Douglas, was a big man in a small body. He is credited with starting universal health care in Canada when he was premier (akin to Governor in US) of Saskatchewan in 1960. Amazing man!

"he's too short to play Jack Bauer." "He didn't look for a minute like someone who could knock someone out with one blow."

Boxer Mike Tyson is 5' 10". Broadway choreographer Tommy Tune is 6' 6". Which of these two would you want on your side in a fight?
Serendipity said on 29/Jul/14
Weird. I checked out photos of him with Julia Roberts, and in most of them he appears taller. But there's one that shows both of them from head to toe, and granted she's wearing heels and she's naturally about 5'9" I've heard, but he's MUCH shorter than she is in that photo.

Can we post links here? I'll try:

For almost any normal profession, your height hardly matters. Does anyone choose their accountant for his height? But for movie or TV action hero you usually want a bigger guy. Small guys just look wrong when they get in a fist fight.

That's the story on Kiefer Sutherland - he's too short to play Jack Bauer.

In 24 he was always punching out someone. He was his own credibility gap. He didn't for a minute look like someone who could knock out the opposition with one blow.

They had another agent played by a full size black man - Roger R. Cross. In a couple episodes he single handedly beat up two or three bad guys. He looked plausible. I can accept that a large muscular man who is a trained agent could duke it out with several guys and prevail. But not Keifer Sutherland. Too small.

His father seldom got to play heroes and engage in fistfights, but he was big enough to be believable on those occasions when he was cast in an action part. Kiefer is just too small.

He seems to be about 5'6".

Any credence to Freddie Prinze Jr. claiming he's 5'4"?
Greg Jr. said on 28/Jul/14
My friend met Sutherland a few years and he's 5'6" and they both were about the same height.
lelman said on 7/Jul/14

Wrong. Some actors simply don't give a damn, some people get measured wrong and stick with it.
bee boo said on 27/May/14
Jon is RIGHT. Kiefer is 1 of thee shortest people I've ever met, next to the rapper T.I. T.I. is about 5'3-5'4. Sutherland is about 5'5-5'6. He was even wearing cowboy boots when I ran into him. I looked like a giant in front of him. I'm like 5'9-5'10. BTW he is beyond arrogant but what was I going to expect ? A nice guy named David who's the leader of the bad vampires to stand 6'0-6'2 ?
Mc51295 said on 21/May/14
Looks pretty close to Kit Harrington's height in Pompeii. I'd say 5'7.5

Its funny that no one minded that James Cromwell played his dad on 24, since we all knew his father could be a really tall guy who looked next to nothing like him. I only watched about three-quarters of a season of 24. "
His real father, Donald, is quite a tall bloke too (6'3) ! So that doesn't mean anything.
J said on 16/May/14
I meet Sutherland at cedars sinai hospital several years ago. I'm 5'8" and he was about my height wearing thick boots. I say he is about 5'7" or 5'6" for sure. Very nice guy.

I don't see a strong resemblance Sean at all. He has a similar shaped long face type and blue eyes, unusually long for his height I'd say which more belongs on a guy Donald's height, but I was only thinking earlier than he didn't look much like Donald at all, especially in body shape.
Sean said on 3/May/14
[Odd that Keifer is so much shorter than his father Donald, whom he otherwise strongly resembles.]
His mother is short.

176,2Tunman said on 9/Feb/14
Well,after paying more attention, his head actually looks more 10-10.5 than11in
Still very big in my opinion, looks about the same as Ryan McPartlins head.
[Editor Rob: his head won't be over 10 inches, Carlyle does not have a long head. See This...blues head is similar to mine, of course he's a guy with an inch of hair, but you can see carlyle in comparison has smaller head. I believe it is more in 8.5-8.75 inch range.]
176,2Tunman said on 8/Feb/14
Rob, how tall is his head,10.5-11inches?It looked like 2in taller Carlyle's head.Anyways very big for somebody at this height.
[Editor Rob: it looks an inch longer but carlyle has an uner 9 inch head, kiefer could be near 10 inch for almost 5ft 9 guy which is big.]

Met Kiefer in Charleston, SC over 10 years ago. Very nice, very drunk and VERY short. I was shocked at how little he was. I'm 6'3 and he couldn't have been more than 5'6.
jetdrums said on 13/May/13
He's 5'9 at best. I met him at a charity event (roping) and in boots he's 5'9" at best. I'm 5'9.5" and I was a tad taller then him.

Herzeleid said on 13/Mar/13
First of all, understand one thing: NO CELEBRITY is EEEEEEEEVER taller than he claims, most likely they are shorter or exactly the height they claimed. So, if once he stated he stands at around 5'9", ANYTHING beyond that height is to be excluded. So stop saying he is around 5'10"+

Yes Starchild, Kiefer in my opinion doesn't look under average height on screen at all and does look 5'10-5'11".
Starchild said on 15/Jun/12
Very strange the illusions film creates. On flatliners kiefer and kevin bacon look 5'11 or more lol. Although in the film he was wearing that tan trenchcoat, boots and had tall hair. He looked 5' 9.5ish on a few good men next to cruise. I've noticed on several appearences on the jonathan ross show he seemed the 5'8.5" you have listed here. i always thought he was taller than me, being a flat 5'10" barefoot myself i'm kinda surprised still.
Chrissy said on 3/Feb/12
Kiefer is about 5'9 to 5'10.
Chrissy said on 3/Feb/12
Beside William Devane, he looks about an inch taller. So if Devane is 5'10 then Kiefer is 5'11. But I'd say that he is a perfect 5'9. Excellent actor.
dmeyer said on 6/Jan/12
he mostly looks 5 ft 8.25-8.75 on 24 , one thing about him on the shoes he mostly wears 1 in boots if you look closely his heels arent even i the 1.2-1.3 range more like 1 in he dosnt look shorter than 174cm bernard the guy is 174cm
Brock said on 21/Dec/11
Umm, why is it that nearly every height profile on this site contains at least one comment about how so and so celeb is actually .25" shorter than reported. There is absolutely NO WAY you can tell that visually, yet there are some folks that will swear they can on here.
dmeyer said on 28/Nov/11
with a cowboy heels 1.5-1.7 in he can pull off 177cm he is no less than 174cm with a chance of 5 ft 8.75
Shaun said on 13/Sep/11
Still, for a guy with a 6'4" father 5'8" range is very short. Even if his mother is 5'2". I've know a lot of guys with very tall fathers and short mothers and they have all been over 6' except for one. Most of them were in the very tall range like the father. Even with a short mother you'd have expected Kiefer to reach 6' at least.
Anon said on 6/Sep/11
Met him last week, he seems short, I figured 5ft 6 maybe 5 7 at the time but looking back at the photos he is a good 4 inches talller than me which would put him at least 5 8 if not more.
Ethan said on 19/Aug/11
Lork, Please stop BS'ing, he's 5'9, have you ever watched 24? No lifts can make you 4 inches taller and not be noticeable, his body looks it. He's 175cm aka 5'9, not less. You're probably some silly loser who is obsessed with Kiefer, get a life.
lork said on 19/Aug/11
Dealt with him on several occasions (as a police officer.. don't ask)... at best, he's 5'5"-5'6". Probably about 145-150 lbs tops. A surprisingly little guy.

I just saw him on Broadway - he is really short - I would say 5ft. 6 in or 7 at most, and very skinny.
Math said on 17/Mar/11
Donald Sutherland is 6' 4" and Shirley Douglas is 5' 2.5", which would then have the children of an average 6' 0", with a deviation of +/- 4 inches. This can range from 5'8" to 6'4". 95% of their children goes within this range. So it's not surprising that Kiefer Sutherland is 5'8.5"

Guy Who Normally Comments with Anonymous says on 2/Feb/11
The average height of a male is 5'9ish. Humans are supposed to be between 5 and roughly 6'1. The reason Kiefer is shorter is because he did not inherit his father's gene. Plus DNA or some genetic mutations may have played a role in Donald's excessive height (more human growth hormone released that just happens randomly). These things aren't a 100% blueprinted out. Just cause one has a tall parent doesn't mean he or she will be tall.

It depends. If a person has one tall parent and the other short, very likely the person will be in between. it can also be nutrition. Kiefer didn't inherit his dad's height is because he has a short mother and it could possibly be that he didn't eat well.
Mr. Kaplan said on 12/Feb/11
Well, Donald's other sons, Rossif and Angus are both well over six feet tall.

Dani lots of the huge 6'4"er guys only produced average height sons, James Brolin's son is struggling with 5'10" too as is Hogan's son. Funny thing is although Kiefer is so much shorter he definately resembles Donald facially more than Rossif does. They definately have similar eyes and a long pointy face shape, you can definately see its his father even though he towers above Kiefer.

With Christian Slater (5'-8.25" or lower) and Martin Sheen (5'6"). Martin is most likely in lifts:

Keiffer is about 5'7". I am 5'9" and interviewed him for a show I did when he was in my city on a movie shoot with his then love interest, Julia Roberts. My recollection is Julia was maybe half an inch taller than him in whatever shoes she was wearing. Kieffer was wearing tennis shoes when I met him. And he weighed MAYBE 150lbs...

On season 6 of 24 he looked the same height as ricky shroeder who is supposed to be a full 5ft 10 who plays mike doyle. Kiefers true height though ive heard is 5ft 8.5 inches.

Schroeder is a weak 5'10 and Sutherland almost always looked over an inch shorter, sometimes close to two. Rob may have Sutherland exactly right, although Kiefer is one of the few celebrities I would be open to a downgrade on.

The guy is maybe 175 cm... Because you have to consider his weight, too. It was given by the Prison officials at 150 pounds, 68 kilos. That's very light. He has a medium build, so he cannot be above 175, considering his weight.

Damit, he is a shrimp !

So I guess about 45% of all men are "shrimps"? Or are you referring to his weight? I am a legitimate 5'10 (barefoot, unlike the Kief) and weigh 155 lbs and I actually look a little stocky. At 5'8.5-5'8.75 (5'10 rounded up in shoes), Sutherland is a good, solid weight, according to the BMI.

This guy ever looks small or tall. On 24 he can look a strong 5ft 10 or a weak 5ft 8. He is one of my favourites but i think his true height is just over 5ft 8 which he once said he was 174cms which is smack in between 5feet 8 and 9.

the measurements from police reports are either taken from your drivers license, asked or just estamations. the heights in mugshots aren't accurate since you are wearing your shoes.

thats not always the case joe.
Stiffelio said on 29/Sep/07
I seriously doubt the police report. To begin with they don't weigh you when they book you. And Sutherland seems too stocky to just weigh 150lbs.
joe said on 29/Sep/07
Yes bob, the cops get you to take your shoes off when measuring.
bob said on 27/Sep/07
No, it would make him around 5'8", unless of course he was wearing flip flops, which I highly doubt since he was leaving a Fox party when he was stopped and he was photographed in shoes that have higher heel that 1/2".
John said on 26/Sep/07
I definitely think this site is underestimating his height. Even if he was wearing shoes when measured, that would make him about 5ft 9 and a half or so.
bob said on 25/Sep/07
Since he was arrested this morning the sheriffs/police dept released a statement that he was 5' 10" and weighed 150 lbs. Do they make them take their shoes off when checking their height?
dmeyer said on 20/Sep/07
on 24 can look 5'8 5'8.5 5'9 and 5'9.5 his height goes up and down so in season 7 he will be 5'7 and 8 he will be 5'11.25

[Editor Rob: pretty much I give him 174cm, he is close enough to carlos, and does look to have advantage over big edgar stiles who is near enough a 5ft 8 guy anyway. Sometimes after being up for 13 hours and running about maybe he loses more than he should!

maybe season 8 the plot will be kiefer having to stay above 173cm or the terrorists will blow up something.]

That article that Bob cites in May is rounding off to the nearest ten. It lists Donald at 190cm even, and brothers at 180 even. So we can assume that, based on the convention of the article, that Keifer is within 2-5 cm of 170cm, but not under.
Elisabeth said on 11/Jul/07
No freaking way he's 5'8"! I ran into him in the northridge mall one day with my husband and my son right after he was born. Keifer stopped to say congratulations on the newborn, and he was definately shorter than I am (5'9") He was right about even with my husband (5'6.5")
HellBoundPower said on 2/Jul/07
In the first season of 24, they said Jack Bauer was 5'11". I know Kiefer isn't THAT tall, but I still suspect 5'9.5"-5'10" for him. He isn't towered over most of the time, he seems average height to me.

[Editor Rob: the whole being up 24 hours and losing more height don't count for this guy ;) I tested that..almost, I made it to 20...

Cross towered over him, he isn't 1 inch shorter than james morrison, 2 inches taller than edgar stiles etc. Sh*t, he's smaller than president logan!]

I said it before, and I 'ii sat it again: Keifer is 5-8 on a good day. Part ofd the reason that he seems taller is due to the fact that he has ine of the world's largest heads! If you look at his head while he is sitting down, he looks like he is a six-footer. But when he stands up, he looks like a munchkin with a bigassed Head!

He said his true height is 174cms so really he is just touching 5ft 9 inches.

I think he is 5 feet 8, he looks short, short legs, short arms.

Why would you insinuate that because it appears that he is shorter than what most people think, he would also be less of a man? I don't think anyone here has ever stated that. Many wonderful, bright, smart men and women have been short. I truly do not believe that Randy Newman literally meant that short people got no reason to live. This blog is not about love or flights of fancy... it's about how tall someone is.

I happen to like shorter being only 5'1, maybe I could actually look Kiefer in the eye! Of course, not for long because I would pass out and fall to the floor as soon as he came within 5 feet of me. Oh well...I don't care how tall he is, I love him anyway!

near 180 cm morrison he looks a solid 3 in shorter so max 5'8.25 proper 173 5'8.5 might be too high so either he lost 0.25 in 0.5 cm no more at 40 or maybe morrison is 5'11.5 to 5'11.75 then keifer is 174 175 cm

after looking at getty images he is noticably taller than julia roberts but he is very mush shorter than withaker so 174 cm no less 175 on a good day he could be the 5'8.75 you had him at

heightologist Caesar sais 5'9" means you look short sometimes and tall other times. I think they call it lifts.
Cæsar said on 30/Apr/07
Kiefer looks about an inch to an inch and a half shorter than 5'9-5'9.5 Ricky Schroder on 24. Kiefer never looks tall in any context suggesting to me he must be below 5'9. 5'9ers like Rob Morrow can look tall at times and short at others. Sutherland is probably 5'8.

kiefer stated his exact height as 5ft 8 and a half i heard somewhere when he was with julia roberts and he doesnt look over or under that height but with his 3inch cowboy style boots on he is then over that height and that is how he can look quite tall sometimes on 24.

Looked at this picture from Forest Whitaker's Walk of Fame Induction today. Standing next to Whitaker (6'2 or 6'2 1/2" here and in pretty much every other reference) and Angela Bassett (a self-reported 5'4" who's wearing at least 3" or 4" heels). I'd say right at 5'10" or a hair under.

It's obvious....Kiefer didn't grow to his potential. His brother Roffis did. I guarantee everyone here that Kiefer has a long wingspan. Probably 5-6 inches taller than his frame. Listen if you have long arms and are shorter by more than 3 inches then you never grew to your potential height, cause you've must have done something wrong in your young teen years.

James Morrison is 5'11" for sure. No taller or shorter than this. Kiefer looks about 2 inches shorter. I believe Kiefer is 5'9" exactly.
Bob said on 3/Apr/07
Oh no...must we go there again?

Glenn, near the Equinox on Greenwich? I'd say 5'7.5
glenn said on 24/Mar/07

PJ said on 23/Mar/07
Fyi, I am 5'9 and we were both standing on the same level sidewalk. He's at least inch shorter then me.
PJ said on 23/Mar/07
Walked by him yesterday in the West Village, he MIGHT be 5'8. He's certainly not taller then 5'8.
susannah said on 10/Mar/07
in Flatliners i seem to remember that julia roberts was decidely taller than kiefer although the exact height difference i cannot recall
HellBoundPower said on 7/Mar/07
I'd say Kiefer is more like 5'9.5"-5'10". He's at least 5'9" for sure.
dmeyer said on 6/Mar/07
i agree bill keifer looks as tall as itzin in this new episode the feet werent seen when itzin apeared taller and keifers shoes in that episide are 1.25 in heels with no lifts you can see it when his pants get lifted to go over a wall so 174 for keifer no less 5'8.5 is bang on or him since he can look 5'8 and can look 5'9
dmeyer said on 6/Mar/07
i agree rob in the first season he looked taller he looked 1.25 taller than 174 bernard and not that mush shorter than 5'11.5 xander in the first season apeared 5'9 storng now he struggles with 5'8
Piper said on 6/Mar/07
I think something should be added to the script that his compact size is what enables him to accomplish feats that a taller man could not...he can stay low to the ground, make quick turns do to his low center of gravity, etc...Keifer is probably 5'8" at the most, although he looks more like 5'6" - 5'7"...
