How tall is Michael Caine

Michael Caine's Height

6ft ½ in (184.2 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 2 (188 cm)
British actor best known for roles in films like The Italian Job, Alfie, Get Carter, The Ipcress File, Sleuth, The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Prestige, The Man Who Would Be King, Hannah and Her Sisters and The Cidar House Rules.
I put on a stone for this role. And I humped myself down so that I looked about 5ft 9ins - actually I'm 6ft 2ins
At fifteen I was nearly six feet and as skinny as a rake.
I was six feet two and weighed a hundred and seventy-five pounds.

I think Ewan McGregor, Stephen Dorff, Joaquin Phoenix, Ryan Phillippe and Tobey Maguire are wonderful actors. There are many other fine actors in Hollywood. But... I've never seen a tall one. It seems to me that there's a generation of very talented small people... maybe they are more ambitious because they are more angry because they are short.
To be taken to the country in the fresh air, with exercise and everything, I sprang up. By the time β€” I'm 6 feet, 2 [inches], but by the time I was 14, I was 6 feet tall.

Caine's Peak height was 6ft.. which in the 1950s / 60s was considered to be tall. in the barefoot - bedroom scene with 5ft 6 Jane Asher in Alfie.. he is no more than 6 inches taller than her..

I think Caine really was the full 6'2 actually, now that I am comparing him to Roger Moore and Sean Connery. Of the three of them, Caine was the tallest for sure. Probably a strong 6'2 at peak--and never really lost much height.

Caine was noticeably taller than Sean Connery and Roger Moore at the 1989 Oscars when they all appeared together on stage to present an award. Connery may have lost a little height by then. I think Caine and Connery looked the exact same height in The Man Who Would Be King. I would say 6’1.5 for a peak is accurate.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jan/21
Rory, I've always branded Connery as a strong 6ft2 and Caine a weak 6ft2.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jan/21
Michael still looked well in excess of 6ft in the brilliant movie 'Harry Brown', which I saw on the 5Star channel on Friday night. πŸ“ΊπŸ˜πŸš¬ I compared Michael to the 5ft10+ Sean Harris, and Sean was definitely looking up to Michael in this 2009 film. I've looked at Sean and compared him to others before and sworn he was over 5ft10, so let's say he's at least a strong 5ft10.

Back in 2009, I'd say Michael was 6ft1 or slightly less. I saw him at the pictures in 'Dressed To Kill' πŸ‘— decades ago, it being one of my first 'X'-rated movies, (so I was probably underage, wearing 4.5" heels and stuffing my bra out!) and, yes, he did look very tall. I remember thinking that to this day. ⏳

6ft2 peak; 6ft0.5 today. πŸ˜€πŸ‘
Rory said on 4/Dec/20
The strange thing with that clip is that Connery looks taller when they walk in and out of the room, but then when standing still if anything Caine looks a bit taller, perhaps due to the camera angle. I think both men were roughly 6ft2,who was a bit over or under it is harder to say exactly, I still think its more likely Caine was a weaker 6ft2 than young Connery but without measuring them its hard to say.
Newman said on 6/Sep/20
Just wondering how many more days we'll need to wait until Rampage writes "Michael Caine 187cm, Connery 189cm" again?

Pretty decent footage of them standing together here from the Man who Would be King [also shown below].
Click Here

Whether they're 6ft 2 or 5ft 2, these guys look about the same height. If anything Caine might have an extra mm or two on Connery here. Physics being the determining factor here not street cred.
Sinclair said on 7/Aug/20
I don’t think Caine was lying about the 6’2” claim, but I suspect that was his morning height and he was more 6’1.75” or 6’1.5” for the majority of the day. I think Sean Connery was slightly taller than Caine, when both men were at their peaks. I also believe Caine looked less than two inches taller than Steve Martin in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and that Caine was very similar in height to Michael Lonsdale in The Holcroft Covenant.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/20
Rory, yeah I think he was a guy that dropped a little below it in the evening. It’s still a reasonable listing though. Looked it often enough
Rory said on 15/Jun/20
I think in that scene the ground Glynn Edwards was standing on was higher, sloping up slightly towards the back gate. In the previous scene where they're in the betting shop they looked close in height. I'd agree though overall in Get Carter Caine didn't give a solid 6ft2 impression, more 6ft1.5-1.75 I felt. At other times in his career though he easily looked 6ft2, I still think maybe 6ft1.75 could be a good fit for him.
Hong said on 12/Jun/20
Click Here Here's Michael with 6ft2 listed Glynn Edwards,he doesn't look 6ft2 there,he looks a bit over 6ft in comparison.

Just reading Michael's autobiography, in which he regularly mentions he was 6'2" as a young actor.
He's lost two inches surely, at 87 ! Six foot now, still a good height.

187.5cm peak, 184cm nowadays.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jan/20
This fantastic guy, as seen in 'Harry Brown', has just about had all he can take. First he loses his wife to illness and then his best friend is brutally murdered by the local hoodlums.

I don't blame him for taking the law into his own hands, after hearing that his mate had been to the police and they'd done nothing about the harassment he'd been suffering, leading him to ask Harry (Michael) whether he'd ever killed anyone, and then producing a weapon for his own self-protection.

This is a serious, humourless watch.

I give Michael 6ft2 for his peak and 6ft0.75 now.
Rory said on 6/Jan/20
6ft1.75 would suit him nicely I think. He's a guy who was near enough to 6ft2 to mostly look it and claim it but probably just under. 6ft1.5 is too low though.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 3/Jan/20
I always thought of Caine more like a range of 187 cm. Here is photo of Caine next to Camilla Sparv from 1967 (Camilla was not wearing heels and was wearing regular shoes): Click Here
I really don't see a difference of 5 inches and a quarter inch between them. I think Samuel L. Jackson from the 90s could easily measure taller than Caine from the 60s and 70s. Rob, maybe downgrade to at least 6'1.75" would be fine for him?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/19
@Rory: agreed, that solid/strong 6ft2 range (188-189cm) belongs to Connery...Caine most likely fell a little shy of it but under 187cm

Today he may be at 6ft flat
KaziSh said on 15/Aug/19
Strong 6'2 peak, now maybe 6'0.5-6'1
Rory said on 17/Jul/19
187.5cm in the 60s,70s,80s
183.5cm in 2019

You wouldn't cite him as a solid 6ft2 guy but guesses of 6ft1.5 or under you can forget he was clearly close to 6ft2.

I can definitely believe 6’2 at peak and current listing seems pretty accurate

It's funny that Charlie Cox looks relatively tall with that lineup, you know all these guys are shrinking, Jim Broadbent might be the only to still straighten up past six feet.
179cm guy said on 9/Jun/19
Rob, surely now that Caine is in his mid-to-late eighties he's at most six-feet at this point? Especially considering that most people on this page seem to have him pegged at a weak 6'2 rather than the full figure?
Editor Rob
He is getting closer to 6ft flat, but even not that long ago look at him with Gambon at about 5 ft9, cox at 5ft 10, he still seemed a bit more than 6ft there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/19
Yeah Connery for the most part edged Caine.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Mar/19
186.7cm peak and 184cm now. Peak Connery had a strong half inch on Caine.
Tall In The Saddle said on 17/Mar/19
Movieguy12 - Agreed re Caine and claimed 6'2" - close but no cigar - a bit under.

However, as you said, certainly not out of order claiming 6'2" - could often look same height as Connery and even a smidge taller - I think that might've been due to Connery's less perfect posture - Caine stood pretty straight most of the time but Sean was one of those guys who would only every now and then straighten to show his full potential and true advantage - which I think was in the realm of .25"-.5" over the artist formerly known as Micklewhite.

I haven't found a lot of visual evidence to uphold Connery's advantage - but this nicely framed clip from The Man Who Would Be King does it for me:

berta said on 3/Nov/18
i think he is 6 foot flat today
Mark Harrison said on 31/Oct/18
He uses a walking stick now so he probably appears to be below six foot.
movieguy12 said on 27/Oct/18
I think Caine was a weak 6'2''. Height straight out of bed so to speak but for most of the day slightly under I'd guess. Not really lying about his height though. Now probably around 6ft even. I think his comment about short actors being angry is meant as tongue in cheek.
Mark Harrison said on 29/Sep/18
Caine never looked a full 6'2". He was probably 6'1.5" at peak, and six foot even today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/18
Could be heading toward 6ft right about now…

6ft1Β½ is the absolute lowest I’d argue peak with better odds measuring a bit over that. Whereas 6ft2 is the absolute lowest I’d argue for Connery’s peak
Rory said on 12/Sep/18
I'd say 6ft0.25 today and 6ft1.75-2 peak. Not bad for 85 years of age.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/18
Agreed Lenad with Connery at a strong 6ft2
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 3/Sep/18
I think caine was a weak 6'2 at peak.
Y07 said on 25/Jul/18
It's great he doesn't inflate his height (Who doesn't when they're already tall, well maybe some people). But his prejudice comment does concern me. How they got a successful acting career has nothing to do with their small (some he mentioned are pretty average) stature and with that means they automatically have a napoleon complex. They got an acting career because they worked their butts off into making that happen. It not only takes heart and spirit to become a talented actor, but they have to work with the right people to get them into that spotlight.

Under 6ft2 would make Seagal under 6ft4 Click Here
Mark Harrison said on 16/Jun/18
He never looked about 6'1.5".
Ian C said on 29/May/18
Mr. Caine here thinks that short people are angry because they're short. This could be one of those things that tall people imagine to be true. You know: I'm glad I'm a six-footer and I pity all those guys who are not, kind of thing.

Would you rather look like Robert Conrad (short but handsome and athletic) or Michael Caine (tall but plain). I'd take door number one on that one.

Most people learn to accept their bodies as they are once they realize that they can't change them very much. This is why being fat is such a bad handicap. If you're fat, you really can become not-fat, but at the cost of near constant effort. But if you're short, well, it's not your fault.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/18
He still looked close to 6ft2 in Cider House Rules
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Apr/18
He atually look more like just a decent 6 footer nowadays. I believe 6'1.75" peak and 6'0 now than a strong 6'2 peak.
The Tall Guy said on 22/Mar/18
I would place Sir Michael at a genuine 6'2" in his prime. I couldn't say what he is today. In Deathtrap, his co-star Christopher Reeve, who stood 6'4", was definitely about two inches taller.
Newman said on 10/Mar/18
Exactly the same height as Connery. Probably 1.87 peak.
Sam96 said on 27/Jan/18
Michael Caine is one guy, who is like a roller coster, keeps getting better with age. Amazing voice cameo in Dunkirk, reminded me of his Battle of Britain role. 6'0.5 today. Peak 6'2.25. Amazing actor. One of the legends of the 20th and 21st century.
newbie said on 9/Jan/18
next to connery can look misleading as Connery still has big shoulders and they are higher than Caine's but when look at each other you can see pretty much eye to eye level in the 1989 clip
Rory said on 4/Jan/18
I think the lowest you could argue is 6ft1.5 for Caine. Even that would do him an injustice I think, peak he'd be in that 6ft1.75-2 area. Didn't look as low as 6ft1 range.
Mister lennon said on 8/Dec/17
Strong 6'1
Anonymous said on 7/Dec/17
Caine usually looked 6'1" in films.
James said on 20/Nov/17
Caine's peak height should be downgraded as he never looked 6'2".
James said on 14/Nov/17
Hawkins didn't really become famous until he was middle-aged so it's difficult to say.
Mister lennon said on 14/Nov/17
I think that he was 5'11. But he could have been 6 too.
James said on 13/Nov/17
Are you sure Hawkins was 5'11"? He looked taller than Stanley Baker in "The Cruel Sea".
Mister lennon said on 12/Nov/17
Ok. But only take a look of pictures of otoole and hawkins in real life. Otoole was taller.
James said on 11/Nov/17
Jack Hawkins wasn't at the beginning of "Lawrence of Arabia". That was Sir Donald Wolfit.
Mister lennon said on 10/Nov/17
Otoole was 6'2 or close. He was taller than harris, who was about a weak 6'1-strong 6.
Hawkins was in the 5'11-6 range. He was only taller than otoole when they have different footwear. At the beginning of the movie, when otoole was also wearing military uniform and boots, otoole was clearly taller than hawkins.
And proof to search in google pictures with otoole and hawkins in real life. You could see that otoole was clearly taller
James said on 9/Nov/17
O'Toole was shorter than Jack Hawkins in all their scenes together. O'Toole wasn't any more than six foot, like Richard Harris.
Mister lennon said on 9/Nov/17
In which scene??
O'toole was clearly taller than hawkins in real life. If hawkins looked taller than otoole in some scenes, this could be because the footwear.hawkins was wearing military boots and otoole normal shoes or arabian sandals.
Richard said on 8/Nov/17
Hawkins was clearly taller than Peter O'Toole in "Lawrence of Arabia". If O'Toole was 6'2" then Hawkins must have been 6'4".
Mister lennon said on 7/Nov/17
O'toole was close to 6'2 peak, if not a weak 6'2.
Hawkins was a tall man also, but o'toole was taller.
Richard said on 6/Nov/17
O'Toole wasn't even six foot, he was shorter than Jack Hawkins.
Anonymous said on 4/Nov/17
He is a lot shorter then Morgan Freeman in Now You see me. 6'0.25 these days and 6'1.5 peak for Mr Caine.
Junior said on 2/Nov/17
I think Caine is a little bit lower than 6'0.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/17
For me O'Toole stood out as the more solid 6ft2 guy, sometimes even 189cm. Hackman could vary in looking a bit above and below while Caine quite possibly was a tad under it. O'Toole's lanky while Hackman is quite broad
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/17
Rob, who do you think was tallest out of Caine, Hackman and O'Toole in their primes?
Editor Rob
they all could be argued between 6ft 1.5-2 range, although all given 6ft 2...I could understand estimates under 6ft 2 for them all.

I'm not sure anybody would stand out as the more solid 6ft 2 man.
Rory said on 2/Oct/17
6ft1.75-2 peak and 6ft0.25 today.
James B said on 3/Sep/17
Thought he looked a textbook 6'2 in Alfie but then he was really skinny at 160 pound range in the film which made him look taller
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/17
Arch, I think 6ft2 is still an okay listing because he did look it more often than 6ft1. But the chances are higher that he might've dipped under it slightly at worst compared to someone like Connery who could look over it and probably held that mark at his low.

I do agree that today he's heading toward 6ft
Arch Stanton said on 14/Aug/17
A full 6'2 seems a tad high, I would go with 187 range myself.
James said on 13/Aug/17
You can tell Caine was never 6'2" in his films from the 1960s. He was either 6'1" or 6'1.5" at his peak. Nowadays at 84 he is exactly six feet.
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Jul/17
I have just started watching for, say, the fifth or sixth time, the fantastic 2009 movie, 'Harry Brown'.
Michael plays the title role and has just received the dreadful news that his only remaining friend has been murdered, a fate which the friend has feared would be very shortly on the cards.
I can feel my eyes welling up already; I know what is to follow and it is far from pleasant.
It's full of swearing, but absolutely none of it is gratuitous. It boasts a top-notch cast, but the acting acolade goes to the well-seasoned actor, Michael Caine.
If you haven't already guessed, there is a 'take the law into your own hands' theme in this, but until you see it, only then will the time be right to agree or otherwise with how the elderly Harry decides to deal with what has happened to today's society and the country he fought for decades ago.
I started watching this film to see how much height Michael might have lost since the 8 years it was made. He looks a good 6ft0.75 - 6ft1, but I have noticed so, so much more than that!
This fine actor has always managed to put real emotion into his performance and, more so than ever now, has continued to do so. Many examples are among my DVD collection - not bad for someone who told her boyfriend in reply to being told that he used to live next door to Mr Caine's cat-loving half-sister, "Oh, I like him, but I'm not really a fan!"

Peak height? A good 6ft2, and today's height can't be much more or less than 6ft1, so that's where I will settle!
Anton said on 8/Jul/17
I photo doubled for Michael in a recent film production. In identical footwear, he was about an inch shorter than my 6'1.5, mostly because he stoops a bit.
James said on 5/Jul/17
His current height should be downgraded to six foot.
RisingForce said on 1/Jul/17
Of course, S.J.H. Height loss varies greatly among different individuals just as height itself, aging and every other physical characteristic varies greatly. Morgan Freeman is only 4 years younger than Caine and doesn't even seem to have lost an inch.
Richard said on 30/Jun/17
Caine was clearly never 6'2". More like 6'1", and 5'11.5" today.

@Danimal said on 10/May/17
Rob, he is 84 years old. The average male shrinks 2" by 80. He is MAX 6'0" today.
Editor Rob: today, six foot on the nose is a good probability for him.

My grandfather turns 85 this year and he didn't lost over 1.25' as peak 5'10.5 and still manage to measure 5'9.25 recently by my dad. Shrinking 2' may be true but not for all old folks depends how well they holding their posture and health status. My granduncle (grandfather older brother) now at 91 and he only lost a full inch the last time since last year i met him he still standing pretty straight and look legit 6'1 like the past 17 years i could remember he didn't lost a single height at peak 6'2 in his 20s to late early 70s of age start losing an inch according to my grandfather. One example Sean Connery keep it quite well i saw few picture of him taken in 2013/2014 in his 83,84 of age look like he only loss half inch or max 2cm if he was 6'2 peak.
RichardSpain said on 27/Jun/17
He seems 188 cm when he was younger, 187 cm when he passed his 50 years old. And 184 cm nowadays. He lost 4 cm. He is an old man 183/184 cm is very credible for him nowadays. Good actor.
Mike said on 6/Jun/17
184 cm today is likely
Lenad the 5ft9.75in stud said on 26/May/17
I reckon he was a 187cm guy at peak. I can buy a full 6'2 of course, but I suspect he was closer to 187.
berta said on 16/May/17
best listing would be peak 6 for 1 3/4 and curretn 6 fot 1/4. lost 1,5 inches wich is good for him. But as an actor i expect the height loss to be less than averge people ( in most cases)
Danimal said on 10/May/17

He has better posture than Graff. He's probably struggling with 6'0 now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/17
Caine and Connery are both fine at 6ft2 for the time being. I just think Caine might have fallen into the 187-188cm zone while Connery may have been a little further up the road at 188-189cm
berta said on 7/May/17
tallest possible for him today is 184 and probably is down to strong 183 guy by now. peak 187
Dejavu said on 29/Apr/17
I think he was 6'1.5 and now 6'0.5.
Steve said on 22/Apr/17
He looked a good deal shorter than Morgan Freeman in the intro to the Graham Norton show, would've thought hes under 6 ft now. But he does still have an inch on Zach Braff and doesn't look much shorter than Freeman at the premiere of Going in Style (Click Here) so may well be 6 ft 0.5.
Rory said on 17/Apr/17
Actually no I take that back. I still think when stood well today he can look the full 6 foot and peak I think he looked roughly 6ft 2 I don't think there's any concrete evidence to speak of to warrant a downgrade to 6'1.75 even though it's possible. I think 6ft flat today and peak 6ft 2 would be very fair.
Rory said on 17/Apr/17
Rob, surely he isn't anywhere near 6ft 1 today ? He struggles to look 6ft I think today as of 2017. I'd wager 6'1.75 peak and 5'11.75 today I think. 2 inch loss age 84.
Film man said on 7/Apr/17
I'm a set hand / carpenter and did his latest film. I'm 6ft dead, and he is exactly the same height now. Still a tall dude. 6'2 peak is correct.
S.J.H said on 1/Apr/17
Sean Connery was always 1-1.5cm taller than Michael Caine.
James said on 1/Apr/17
He could measure 6'2" in shoes.
Willes188 said on 28/Mar/17
He could measure just under 6ft 2 in his prime while Connery could measure just over

Caine: 6ft 1 6/8

Connery: 6ft 2.2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/17
I think he had to have been close to it. Don't think he was just 6ft1
berta said on 27/Mar/17
by the way google have him on 184 cm hahah only time googel underlist someone that mutch
berta said on 27/Mar/17
wasnt dwayne johnson like 3 inches taller than him in their movie together? i dont think he is over 6 feet today he is really old now and lets say he was 187 and 183 now, then he only have lost 4 cm at 84 and that is really good
James B said on 20/Mar/17
rob he might have pulled of a 6'2 range illusion when he was younger because he was extremely slim
Editor Rob
he certainly could look it in the 60's, and his type of character, acting etc adds to his persona on screen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Mar/17
You could argue 6ft for Martin in Dirty a Rotten Scoundrels
berta said on 13/Feb/17
classic 187 guy. steve martin at 182 only looked 4 cm shorter but lets say it was 5
James said on 1/Feb/17
It's obvious he was never 6'2" as he never looked that height in anything, not even in "Zulu" next to Sir Stanley Baker.

Caine was 6'1" at the very most.
James said on 31/Jan/17
He gave his peak height as 6'1" in his 1992 autobiography.
Editor Rob
in his What's it All About I saw him call himself 6ft 2 on about 4 occasions.

Also said at 15 he was almost 6ft.
grizz said on 29/Jan/17
@James, link to this claim?

Caine needs downgrading slightly, by his own admission his peak height was 6'1".

Young michael caine height is more 187+cm than 6'2 and 6'1 now is pretty accurate

The more I see of Caine's older films the more he looks 6'1 range I think. I think 187 might be nearer, but he was very close to Connery.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Jan/17
@Rob, seeing him with 6'4 John Philip Law in Hurry Sundown it's very difficult to see Caine at a full 6'2. He could look almost 3 inches shorter in fact. With Steve Martin tough to see him at 6'2 too. Maybe 6'1.5. You can't have Garner at 6'1.5 and Caine at 6'2 haha.
Editor Rob
Caine has had 6ft 1 and 2 descriptions, he has always seemed to give 6ft 2 though...he may well be a 6ft 1.5 guy.
Jimbo said on 12/Jan/17
6'1.5" peak

6' Now
Rory said on 6/Jan/17
Seeing as he still looks 6'0.25 today do you really think an 83/84 yr old would only have lost 0.75 inches from his prime ? That would be pretty darn unique.
James said on 4/Jan/17
6'1" was his peak height.
Rory said on 2/Jan/17
I would normally have said someone like Caine in '88 aged 55, a smoker and slightly overweight, would have lost a good cm. The problem is though is generally he's been a guy who has done well holding on to his height, even today aged 83 he still looks at least 6ft and could 15 yrs back still look 6'1-2 range, which makes it seem unlikely he'd have lost anything much by his mid fifties. 187.5 peak and 187 flat in the late 1980s. 184 today. I think he looked about 2 inches taller than Steve Martin in dirty rotten scoundrels.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Dec/16
Mmm looked nearer 186 with Steve Martin in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Had he lost height by '88?
Tim said on 28/Dec/16
Caine was never more than 6'1".
James said on 5/Dec/16
6'2" was clearly with shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft flat today?
Editor Rob
it is becoming more likely.
Z187 said on 1/Dec/16
In his autobio he actually writes his height as 6'1" ....don't know where these quotes are from of him stating that he's 6'2 ... Perhaps he meant in shoes.. I not sure why he would change his mind otherwise, surely you'd be most truthful in your biography and least when you are making a few throwaway comments at interviews or whatever??
HonestSlovene said on 6/Nov/16
35-55 is middle age so yeah around 35 is the start of middle age therefore early middle age. I'd say being young stops at about 33, 31 i still young but at the end of it IMHO. Caine looked 6'1.5"-6'2" in movies peak to me, now due to shrinkage looks like a solid 6'0" to me.
James said on 3/Nov/16
Of course 34 is early middle age. Once you're in your late twenties you know you're not young any more. Caine and Connery were both middle-aged when they became famous.
Shredder said on 30/Oct/16
34 middle age?
James said on 27/Oct/16
Caine was 34 when he arrived in Hollywood in 1967. He was in early middle-age.

Caine probably had small lifts in "The Man Who Would Be King". It was quite obvious he was never 6'2".
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Oct/16
@ Rory. I couldn't agree more with you that a 31-year-old is no way in early middle-age! Whoever said that must come from an incredibly old-minded family! 31 is a fantastic age, as you still have your looks and you have the added bonus of confidence, which is pretty thin on the ground at, say, 20!
Michael Caine starting his acting career at 31 is by no means late by today's standards or those of his day. Look at Dustin Hoffman - 30 when he played the title role in 'The Graduate'! Michael Caine had, and still has, height on his side; Dustin Hoffman is a short 5ft6, but both actors have had staying power because they are so good! This is one example where talent really has been prevalent.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Oct/16
If he was just 6ft1, then Connery was struggling with 6ft2 which is rubbish
Rory said on 22/Oct/16
"Already in early middle age when he became famous"...At age 31, really ? Don't think so.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/16
He was probably nearer 6ft2 than 6ft1
mister_lennon said on 22/Oct/16
I think caine was close to 6'2 at peak, but not a full 6'2. A strong 6'1. About 186 or 187.
James said on 21/Oct/16
Caine was a lot closer to the camera than Lazenby.
James said on 21/Oct/16
Caine was wearing built up shoes in Alfie, as he was already in early middle-age when he became famous.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Oct/16
Disagree. Saw Alfie again recently and could look a full 6'2 a lot. Perhaps 6'1.75.
Editor Rob
look at Caine near Lazenby here.
James said on 19/Oct/16
You could tell from his films that he was never 6'2". 6'1" or 6'1.5" maximum.
Rory said on 14/Oct/16
Yh for his age he's held his height very well, at most he's lost 1.5 inches aged 83.
newbie said on 14/Oct/16
problem I've always had with Caine isn't so much believing he's 6'2 as his posture is generally so poor that he never looks his height and I could believe he was every bit 6'2 and maybe a bit more. Generally you see very few photos where the floor, footwear etc can be verified, with other actors where he doesn't have a slight slouch of shoulders/neck/head. I do find it laughable that some are taking his appearance next to the likes of Bale, when Caine is in his 80s and saying barely taller so never 6'2.
Rory said on 12/Oct/16
6'1.75 peak, 6'0.25-5 today. I can't see a case for him being as low as 6'1 peak, minimum 6'1.5 Imo and his 6'2 claim is perfectly reasonable.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft1 flat peak?
Editor Rob
I think he was taller than it, I wouldn't go that low, even though he had that listing early in his career...he seemed to claim 6ft 2.
James said on 27/Sep/16
Caine was 6'1" at his peak, you can tell from his early movies that he was never 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/16
That's probably because Freeman is still near 6ft2 while Caine has maybe dipped under 6ft1
jervis said on 6/Jul/16
There are some new pics of caine with morgan freeman and freeman is much taller than caine
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/16
Connery at a strong 6ft2 and Caine a weak 6ft2 is what I always saw going with photos of them together and/or the same actors in separate scenes/movies. In Man Who Would Be King, Connery was bald and Caine had boots and a helmet.
jtm said on 18/Jun/16
there is a full body shot in the beginning of the man who would be king and Connery is slightly taller than Caine. to be honest I don't even remember a scene Caine looked taller expect when he is much closer to the camera. sticking with 6'1 peak no more no less
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jun/16
Honestly in the Man WHo Would be King I couldn't decide who was taller out of Caine and Connery, either could look to have the edge depending on the scene. They were very close in height. Always a chance of just under 6 ft 2 for Caine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/16
Somewhere 6ft1Β½-6ft1ΒΎ peak I think if we're gonna be ultra precise. I'd lean more on the latter though.
James said on 3/Jun/16
Caine was 6'1.5" at his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/16
Michael Caine: 187-188cm
Sean Connery: 188-189cm
jervis said on 1/May/16
Funny Ive just seen a photo of him standing next to Sidney Poitier who is listed as 6ft2.5,and Poitier looks about 1.5 inches taller than Caine.
Tom said on 17/Apr/16
Connery was 6'2".
184-182 said on 10/Apr/16
Easily taller than Nicholas Cage in The Weather Man. I guessed he was in the 6'1-6'1.5 range in that movie so 6'1 seems fair today
Rory said on 10/Apr/16
Hes lost just an inch i think, at most 1.5 inches which is good going for an 83 yr old. So the smoking James obviously didn't do him any harm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/16
It'd make him the same height as Connery
James said on 9/Apr/16
No, 189 would make him taller than Sean Connery.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/16
189cm early morning peak.
James said on 7/Apr/16
Caine was 6'1.5" at his peak, but because he smoked so much he lost an inch over the years and is now closer to six foot.
Idk said on 31/Mar/16
Definitely taller than bale and pretty close in height to Bratt in miss congeniality. I'd bet 189 peak and 185-186 now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Mar/16
He still looks comfortably over 6ft today though
Eston B Havbin said on 8/Mar/16
I opened the door to him a couple of years ago (I'm tangentially involved in the film industry) and he is one very tall pensioner. I'm over 6'1" and he was at least my height even as recently as two years ago.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/16
Rob, maybe Caine is another for the 6ft1ΒΎ pile?

That might potentially put Connery at his allegedly measured 6ft2β…œ because he did edge him in The Man Who Would Be King wearing just sandels while Caine was in boots...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/16
I'd with B peak then. He might have dipped slightly under it in the late evening.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Feb/16
Rob, which range is most likely at peak?

A) 190cm/188cm
B) 189.5cm/187.5cm
C) 189cm/187cm
D) 188.5cm/186.5cm
E) 188cm/186cm

Caine peak I'm still open to the chance he wasn't quite 6ft 2. I wouldn't have placed him as a stick-on six two guy.

6ft2 looked believeable in Alfie
Z187 said on 21/Nov/15
Barely taller (if not shorter) than bale, Nolan and dicaprio.. Can't believe he was ever 188 on this evidence.
grizz said on 2/Oct/15
Jwwjr.,I think they downplayed his height a bit. As a 6'1.5 guy at his prime,he could be classified both 6'1 and 6'2 (former extremely rarely,though).
jwwjr. said on 29/Sep/15
In his autobiography, it shows a photo of one of his early head shots and description .it says hisname and height 6ft.1 in
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
I think 6ft2 is still acceptable. There's just a good chance he dipped a little below it at the end of the day. 6ft1 flat is low for his peak.
grizz said on 12/Aug/15
In Bewitched (2004 movie) he really held its own next to cast that included then-6'3 Ferrell and 5'10.5 Kidman. I bet my cheese sandwich he was strong 6'1 back then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/15
Autographs aren't as valuable these days as photos
James B said on 5/Aug/15
Rob was your last comment to rampage a dig at Glenn especially in the last paragraph?
Editor Rob
James, it's a general observation. With the rise of sites like facebook, twitter and in particular Instagram, many people are thinking of themselves in terms of followers, popularity etc.

The autograph to such people might not be worth as much as a Selfie with Tom Cruise or whoever. Their currency is likes, followers, improving their own self-worth etc.
Chase Witherspoon said on 3/Aug/15
In one of his autos he mentions being "around six-foot" about the time he enlisted, sort of implies to me an inch or so either way, but not 6'2".... 186cm would be my shout..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/15
A lot of the younger actors are totally infatuated with themselves and think they're god's gift. It's so clear to me that some of them are in it for the money and the fame. Others...they're anger with the media intruding their privacy is understandable. From the moment they step out the door of their homes to the moment they step back in, they get swept up by an ocean of cameras. It gets nauseating after awhile and some just snap. Alec Baldwin is a prime example.
Editor Rob
when you go to a shopping mall and people from say a Utility or Credit card company tries to stop and get you to sign up for something...for a well-known actor, in public that's what it probably feels like a lot of the time. You can develop a thick skin and really ignore most of it, but many do react, naturally of course...

Unfortunately that is part of the package of becoming quite famous. If it's not the paparazzi, it's the professional autograph hounds and in the last decade the rise of 'selfie hounds'.
James B said on 22/Jul/15
Yeah rob a lot of actors think there larger than life
James B said on 21/Jul/15
Rob I don't think Caine is the nicest of actors is he in real life judging by stories of his fierce temper on set and seeing him in interviews. Not a man you would want to upset and just by him giving you that 'look' you don't want to cross the line with him.

Seeing him play Alfred you'd think he was the sweetest man in the world. Leslie Grantham said actors are the worst people in the world and indeed they are paid to deceive us.
Editor Rob
sometimes with films maybe it is best not knowing about personal lives of actors.

I don't envy though, the personal intrusion that actors have to endure. I can understand the nature of the business, the people involved, the 'yes men' and adulation. Over time actors can let it 'get to their heads' and it changes them, sometimes for the worse, but maybe in a lot of cases for the better; they realise the influence they have and use it for doing great things.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jun/15
In Funeral in Berlin he's about two inches shorter than Paul Hubschmid who was listed at 6 ft 4.

There are scenes in Interstellar where he look shorter than 5'11 3/4" Matthew McConaughey. He us 81 years old Rob. The average man will have lost 2" by then. I think he's max 6'0", but can look 5'11" these days. 6'1" is definitely out of the question.

Are you joking?!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/15

can be hard to tell in their film together, depending on angles, either could look at times an edge.

@Arch: That scene in Dr. No where Jack Lord frisks Connery...easily 1-2in in Connery's favour.
Mike said on 7/Dec/14
Him and Connery could look close in height but I think its clear Connery was more of a 188 guy than Caine.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/14
I can play Alfie on the guitar in a jazz style, in fact it's one of my favourite songs to play. I nicked some of the chords from Burt Bacharach LOL!!
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/14
Rob can you add a photo from Alfie/Get Carter days?
Arch Stanton said on 7/Dec/14
Yeah I think you're right Rampage it was a tough call really but both around that 6 ft 2 mark. Connery in some scenes in Goldfinger and Dr. No in particular yeah he could seem a 189-90 guy at times. Walking down the hotel corridor in Goldfinger and Dr. No (with Ursula) he could look near 6 ft 3, but he was a good 2 inches shorter than 6'4" Rik van Nutter in Thunderball and didn't seem that much taller than Jack Lord in Dr. No really.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/14
Arch, I'd go w/h Connery since he was bald and was in sandals while Caine was in military boots. But then again one could argue 187cm for the latter's peak. They were probably both around the 6ft2 mark in all honesty give or take.If were gonna be precise, looking at other films all evidence points towards 6ft1Β½-2 or "weak" 6ft2 for Caine (he could look just 6ft1 at times also). I'd go more in the opposite direction for Connery and guess anywhere between 6ft2-2Β½ or "strong" 6ft2 for his peak since he could pull off looking 6ft3 in early Bond and was considerably taller than other legit 6ft1 men (Gert Frobe, Jack Lord and even a young Kevin Costner later on)
Arch Stanton said on 21/Nov/14
I can't decide who edged who in The Man Who Would Be King. Just when you think Caine edged him out Connery could seem a bit taller. I think they were very close.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/14
His role in Inception is very minor.But Educating Rita should definitely be in there (he was nominated for best actor that year)
Sam said on 6/Nov/14
Could you beef up his credits? "best known for roles in films like Zulu, The Ipcress File, Alfie, The Italian Job, Sleuth, The Man Who Would Be King, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Cidar House Rules, The Prestige and Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight series".

I preferred The Quiet American to Cidar House Rules but he won an Oscar for the latter so I deferred. Also tough to leave off Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, A Bridge Too Far, Dressed to Kill, Educating Rita, Mona Lisa, Little Voice, Quills, Children of Men, Inception and on and on! Despite slumming in a bit of dreck here and there, Caine truly has had a career to be proud of.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Oct/14
The 6ft1ΒΎ could be a better fit but I wouldn't go lower than 6ft1Β½ though. He's still 6ft1 today and agree he's hasn't lost as much height as Connery through the years.
mike said on 9/Oct/14
If you're gonna have Connery 6ft 2 flat 6ft 1.5 will be spot on for Caine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
A weak 6ft2 might be more plausible for his peak
mike said on 19/Aug/14
Rob, i think you should downgrade his peak to atleast 6ft1.75in 187 cm he didn't look a full 6ft 2next to Connery downgrade Rob?
mike said on 18/Aug/14
Michael Caine's height is 6ft 0.75in (185 cm)

Six-one in his younger days.

Just over six feet today.

It's amazing to see some of these actors in person because hardly any are the height they claim.

Almost every actor I've seen in the flesh was shorter than their bio claimed.

There were a handful,of exceptions.

John Wayne was definitely six-four.

Rock Hudson was six-five.

Steve McQueen was close to, if not five-ten.

George Segal was five-eleven as he claims.

I think 187-188 cm range at peak, he can look more 184-185 cm today.
Sam said on 9/Jan/14
Caine looked not much more than 6'1" in Hannah and Her Sisters, as both Max Von Sydow and Daniel Stern seemed several inches taller (close to 3 than 2 in)...on the other hand, in almost all of his early British movies he seems to tower over others like an easily 6'2" guy. Connery and Caine are similar, though I think Connery might a slightly stronger 6'2" than Caine is based on the comparison.

'Britt Ekland's nudity', lol, it was a body double, Britt moaned because she herself was reed slim but the body double had a rounded bottom
Arch Stanton said on 28/Dec/13
Thanks. I really thought Caine looked 6'2" range in Get Carter. Although the camera angle in a lot of scenes was looking up which made him look even taller. Of course none of males like films like Get Carter and The Wicker Man because of Britt Ekland's nudity, such a put off ;-]. The Italian Job is on TV later, haven't seen the original for quite a few years...
Arch Stanton said on 27/Dec/13
Rob can you add Alfie and The Ipcress File?
Arch Stanton said on 27/Dec/13
Really does look about 6'2" in Get Carter.
Lenad said on 24/Dec/13
Good point rampage. I still think for the most part connery didn't seem over 6'2 but very close to it nevertheless. Caine on the other hand, while tall looked more in the 6'1 range to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/13
Connery could very well have cleared 6ft2 in his 20s and 30s, Lenad. Watch any of his Bond movies or even The Rock and you'll know what I mean. Caine might've been 6ft2, but there's a good chance he was more 6ft1.5-6ft1.75.
Lenad said on 22/Dec/13
he looked the same if not marginally shorter than sean connery who I doubt was over 6'2. 186-187 for caine
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Nov/13
Actually, 6ft1.75in/187cm is equally possible for his peak. He looked more weak 6ft2 range in Get Carter, Sleuth and the Italian Job.

Connery was definitely the stronger 6ft2 guy in The Man Who Would Be King.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Oct/13
Rob why haven't you listed Alfie and The Ipcress File, he was nominated for an Oscar for Alfie and a BAFTA for Ipcress, they're among his signature roles I think, certainly iconic in British cinema. Looks a full 6'2" in the Ipcress File. He looks about 3 inches taller than Guy Doleman who you might remember in the clinic as "Count Lippe" in Bond's Thunderball opposite Sean Connery. He was about 5 ft 11. Nigel Green looks 4 inches taller than Doleman in Ipcress and about an inch on Caine. He was listed at 6'4", I guessed him at 6'3" which would seem more likely.
NJP said on 6/Oct/13
Seen him regularly on oxford street and stood next to him in the queue in HMV. Seemed a strong 6ft so 6ft1 standing to attention is probably correct.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jul/13
I think he looked 6ft2 range right up until the 90s. In Batman Begins and Dark Knight looked a bit shorter than Morgan Freeman but easily taller than Bale.

188cm peak, 186cm now
Sam said on 12/Jul/13
He might have had a mid-day peak of 187 cm but anything less seems unlikely to me.

joe joe said on 6/Dec/12
To be fair Rob I think He must have been six two because when I met him a year or so ago we were eye to eye and he seemed a good 6'1 so common sense would say that taking into account height loss he would have been minimum 6'2 in his younger day. Maybe the army measured him at night and he came out as 187 lol. But he is very tall for an older guy and has quiet good posture.
joe joe said on 19/Nov/12
Just have to say it again. read his official biography again yesterday and it definitley has his height at the age of 22 on his army and acting records as 6'1 I dont think cain was ever 6'2. I have met him at at an old age he still seems 6'1 to me to it is feeseble that he was 6'2 and lost some height but i dont see why he or his agents would say he was 6'1 if he was 6'2. plus at 22 for boys you are in your last year of growth.
Editor Rob
he still thinks he's six two, he mentioned it in that book aswell.

by the way rob.

Ive met him and he still seems to be 6'1. we were eye to eye. his daughter was about our height in her heels aswell. lol. tall family
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/12

i would still say he is about 6ft 2, look at him next to hugh jackman in a lot of shots, when he is standing up straight he could nearly be taller than jackman if jackman didn't have such a high haircut

and here in the film

5'11 Joseph Bologna look 2" shorter than caine in 1984 Blame it on Rio, i don see over 2"

NO. 6'2". He was always a long-limbed guy, but his heavy build is deceptive and sometimes makes him look shorter than what he is. 6'2" is correct for him--like his friend Sean Connery, he hits 6'3" in shoes. Even today he looks close to 6'2"--he hasn't lost much.

"Looks 6'0" just like Jim Carrey?" What are you smoking? He has 2" on Carrey, FFS!

@Gus: They're onstage, they're moving around a bit, but I think that both Connery and Caine are both minimum 6'2" at this event in '89--add in the dress shoes and both are 6'3" onstage. Both men have kept most of their height; in recent photos they still look to be minimum 6'1" in older age, and still close to 6'2".

Caine shorter than connery ? I dont think so...Click Here

all you stupid men who obviously have massive complexes about your height need to get over the fact that he's 6ft 2, which means he's tall. he's not 5ft 9. he's not 4ft 11. he's taller than 6ft, get over it, it doesnt make that much difference
James said on 11/Sep/11
Maybe 6'2 or 6'1.75 peak.

In 2004 michale caine was 186cm. just look at him next too Christian bale in batman begins.

Michale Caine did look just a fraction shorter than connery so possibly 187cm peak?

6ft1 in prime. 6ft nowadays.
James said on 9/Aug/11
Not over 188cm peak and today he's still over 6ft. Like Sean Connery he's not lost the amount you would expect at his age.

Worked with him recently, still quite tall but prob around the 6' - 6'1 mark

Is it still a possibility that Caine is 186cm, Rob?

A true legend--the original GET CARTER immortalized him. Just watched him in a low-key--albeit gritty & brutal--film from 2010 titled HARRY BROWN. Although he was 77 at the time, he still looks to have maintained that height. He's at least 6'1" today, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was still hitting the 6'2" mark, at least in the morning hours. He was a tall man when he was young, and now in older age, he's still tall. Great actor.

6'1.75 (187cm) peak
6'0.5 (184cm) today

Just slightly taller than 181-182cm Christian Bale
