Wow! I’m chuffed to discover that I am taller than nearly the whole main Shrek ensemble (Myers, Diaz, Murphy, Banderas, Saunders, Andrews). Cleese, Cassel and Lithgow do have me by several inches though.

Myers is no doubt 5’7” range but in The Cat in The Hat, Myers in his giant cat suit seemingly edged out Alec Baldwin!

He doesn't look anymore than a flat 5'7 in Wayne's world films. And he was wearing pretty flat footwear in those films.

"Get your cack cheeks out of my face - you stink!" Shrek says to Puss in 'Shrek 2'.

"Well you don't exactly smell of roses!" 🌹❎ replies Puss. 🐈

Well, I think that fact is quite famous regarding the green, flatulent ogre!

I'll go with the average of 5ft7.5. 'Inglourious Basterds' was the first film I saw Mike act in. I thought he was Scottish until a moment ago, having looked for Mike amongst the Scottish actors! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜† It's Shrek's accent, you see. I came to that conclusion when I saw 'Shrek' with my boyfriend, who had a 'craving' for it, so I went out and bought a copy.

Oh dear, Shrek's just consumed the potion - and BANG! πŸ€£πŸ’¨

Mike Myers seems to be at least between 5'7-5'9 but I think 5'8 fits him perfectly

Looks a bit taller here
Aj06 said on 4/Jan/21
so on average he claims 5'7 3/4 preety honest would go slightly smaller at 5'7.5 though.
Jkiller said on 28/Sep/20
5'7.5 to be fair.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/Jun/20
I'm watching the first 'Shrek' movie and hearing Mike speaking in his normal Scottish accent makes me respect him and actors like him for their ability to put on a multitude of different voices, as Mike did in 'Inglourious....'.

At around 5ft7/5ft7.5, he is playing the largest guy in the script! I'm in for a lot of fun now, and that takes me back to the morning when my boyfriend said, "I wanna see 'Shrek'!"

Having never seen it before, I bought him a copy, followed closely by the other two movies. It has a star-studded cast to be sure, and it was love at first viewing for me. AND the scenery is so beautiful, detailed and realistic..... πŸ’•

5ft7.5 πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jun/20
Mike's conversation with Michael Fassbender in 'Inglourious Basterds' as they share a toast:

Mike: "Down with Hitler!"

Michael: "All the way down, Sir"

I drink to that! πŸ₯‚

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Jun/20
5'6.75" or 5'7.25" would have get described the same height as 5'7 from a round up or down. Therefore Mike could be 5'7.25".
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/May/20
πŸŽπŸŽˆπŸŒžπŸŽ‚ Happy Birthday Mike! πŸŽ‚πŸŒžπŸŽˆπŸŽ

A Very Happy Birthday to actor and father-of-three Mike Myers, who turns 57 today. I bet those kids of his were proud that their Dad voiced the hilarious Shrek!

5ft7.5 an ogre πŸ‘Ή, and a donkey 🐴 go winging their way to Mike on his special day! πŸ˜ƒπŸ»

@ Yang (5 footer 8, 173, Aries) - I-N-T-E-R-E-S-T-I-N-G!

Do you think they are both 5'7"?
Yang (5 footer 8, 173, Aries) said on 20/May/20
Similar range with Tom Cruise.
Nik said on 16/May/20
Mike could also joke about being 6 foot nothing and I am so pleased to give him his 100th comment, he so deserves it!
Nik said on 16/May/20
It's great that he embraces being pictured with a lady who is taller than himself!
Powerhouse said on 1/Mar/20
Seems like a 5’6.5-5’7 range guy, looks quite short in the Austin Powers films even with his 1.5-1.7 inch boots. Don’t know why the average guess is so high for him, nothing over 5’7 is plausible.
billionaireslayer said on 23/Mar/19
5'6 - 5'6 n half range
viper said on 25/Feb/19
The 5-7.5 is a morning measurement I think.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Apr/18
Absolutely certain he was 5ft7 in every one of the Shrek movies!

No, but seriously, as he was in 'Inglourious Basterds', I did see him act, but I thought he might have exceeded his 5ft7! I expected about 5ft8 for him! Maybe I should watch an 'Austin Powers' movie or two!

Bright and early this morning, this funnyman, who DOES take on serious roles as well, can have 5ft7.5! πŸ˜‚

5'8 with shoes on
JJStyles said on 3/Jan/18
Yeah he looks 5'7
Shredder said on 22/Oct/17
Rob is 5'7.5 possible , he looks just under Dana Carvey
Editor Rob
Tom Cruise range is possible for Dana.
Shredder said on 18/Oct/17
Rob , how much do the Austin Powers boots give in height?
Editor Rob
over 1.5 inch, but not a 2-inch...I'd have thought 1.6-7 range actually.

If I stand next to him would I be able to see over the top of his head Rob?
Editor Rob
you would be looking near the top of his hair, but maybe not over it.
World Citizen said on 20/May/17
I think he is 5 ft 6.5
Michael Doan said on 2/Apr/17
He wears those big healed boots in Austin Powers so those make him look 5'9".
headman said on 23/Jan/17
What would you say his head length is, Rob?
Editor Rob
headman, he has a bit of width to his head and it's not least 9.25 inches.

Rob it seems good old Mikey is not in very high demand these days is he?

Believe or not this guy has a bit of a temper from what I have researched.
Editor Rob
I've read that too, maybe it is part of it. Of course the Love Guru probably never helped.

Maintaining a high level in Hollywood is tough, very few actors are in consistently good or great movies.

james scott said on 30/Jan/16
5.7 seems fair, in so i married an axe murderer ( excellent film) anthony la paglia is about 5.9 ish and nancy travis is about 5.4 ( very good cast ) i dont think mike myers ever wears lifts/elevator shoes he doesnt seem that bothered. very good actor and writer.
MaskDeMasque said on 5/Dec/15
Looks about 2.5 inches shorter than Strong 5'9 Eddie Murphy. 5'7 is fair. And yeh Tom, he does look taller in Austin Powers. Based on that movie alone i woulda guessed 5'9-5'10 range.
5'11 barefoot said on 25/Feb/15
2 inches shorter than 5'9 ryan phillipe. Yeah maybe even 5'6 barefoot for myers..
the shredder said on 21/Feb/15
Rob , I agree with 170's , but do you really think Martin Lawrence at his heaviest looks lighter than him? I remember you thought Martin's heaviest was 165 area
Editor Rob
I gotta watch typin in 'actor name at beach' on here, I've had Jenny walking by the computer and I think she might start thinking the wrong impression.
the shredder said on 19/Feb/15
Rob I have another weight question , what do you give his weight in the austin Powers films? Around the time of Goldmember I read a site that gave him 5'9 211 lbs , that sounds insane.
Editor Rob
probably no more than 170 pound
FlameBoy said on 4/Oct/14
it would not Surprise me if he was his claim i mean if your A 5 ft 7 Actor and your going to lie about your height you may aswell say 5 ft 8 as there would Be barley any Difference.
Mike T said on 11/Oct/13
5'7.5 at peak and 5'6.5 now. He's like 50 years old now

You guys are out of your mind. Even the kid in Halloween 2 says "ARE YOU A GIANT". He would never have said that if Michael Myers was just 5'7" tall.
Michael Myers is at least as big as The Great Khali and probably even taller and heavier. I'd guess about 8'0" 600lbs. Just go to 1:05 in the clip too see what I mean. Click Here
Even though the actor who plays him is probably only 6'10" 320lbs or so, the character Mike Myers is about 8'0" 600lbs in my opinion.

Please tell me you're joking!

Saw him in the mid-90's in Toronto...I'm only 5'5" & he was my height or less in Converse All-Stars, so he MIGHT be 5'7" in decent soled shoes but no taller! He's a tiny lil guy!
Liam said on 12/May/09
Heard him on the Opie & Anthony show back in 2008, he said "I'm taller than my dad, I'm not tall though I'm only 5'7.5" but I claim 5'8" on my hockey card" (last part was a joke)
ikbtops said on 20/Apr/09
He's obviously slouching bigtime in this pic. I say around 5'10".

he is 5.7 and a half.... that is from the horses mouth in an interview
mcfan said on 1/Mar/09
If Dana Carvey is 5'7.25 as claimed by this site, then I would think he is only 5'6.5. (I never knew Carvey's height) In SNL Carvey looked almost an inch taller than Myers as well as in "Wayne's World."

He looks no more than 5'6 to me, 5'6.5 max.

5ft7.5 I wouldn't rule out. Saw him in New York some years ago. 1999 I think it was. The year Spy who Shagged me came out. He had the Austin Powers like hairdo.
Doug said on 20/Jan/09
I thought Beyonce looked about 6 ft in heels in Goldmember and the hair!! I thought she towered above Myers in heels. I would have estimated 5'6" or 5'7" for Myers.
Anonymous said on 4/Jan/09
i am watching goldmember now and both in flats beyonce isnt much shorter/ around the same size and shes 5.6". I would say 5'7 is right
anonymous said on 13/Nov/08
He's 5 foot 7. He always looks short.
Mr. R said on 3/Oct/08
I saw Mike last night at the AFI salute. He is about 5-6. The press took pictures of he and Warren Beatty together, and it looked like a giant and an elf. Incidently, his hair was dyed black. I assume for a role.
anneo said on 22/Sep/08
i watched an interview with him and he said he was 5'7 and 1/2 although he says he always puts down he is 5'8
Big King said on 7/Sep/08
Strange, most of the websites say 5'7" and 5'9" for Mike Myers. Maybe Myers is around 5'8" tall and Elizabeth Hurley 5'8 1/2". Hurley was only a half inch taller than Myers in Austin Powers.
Mary said on 1/Aug/08
I spoke to him everyday for a week a couple of years ago now, I am a tad over 5'8" (tad being a quarter inch) and had a good couple of inchs on him at least.
We both had flat shoes
sf said on 26/Jun/08
Been reading alot about Myers lately. Didn't know he had a reputation in Hollywood for being difficult and controlling. But, he does. I'm just wondering how many more movies he can do with the exact same character and jokes. 5'7" seems about right.
wstat said on 26/Jun/08
On wayne's world Myers can appear taller (Like 5'8). However, A friend my height met him and said Myers seemed shorter (I'm 5.7 to 5.7 and a half). Myers probably is 5.6 1/2 to 5.7 maybe. It seems to be the case.
Danimal said on 26/Jun/08
I agree with Glenn. He was no way over 5'7". I've heard 5'6" listings for him in the past. Wasn't Dana Carvey 5'7" and taller than Mike Myers on Wayne's world?
glenn said on 24/Jun/08
there is no way he is taller than 5-7.
Dannimal said on 23/Jun/08
On the Opie and Anthony show, promoting his new film "Love Guru", he said he was 5'7.5... but claims 5'8 usually. So there you have it.
Iwonder said on 31/May/08
I think he's in the 169-171cm range. My friend is a weak 5'7" too and I would have thought he was much shorter than that and I'm a weak 5'9". It was only when I measured him that I found out his claims were true. This is despite the fact he always stands tall and he still looks very short from any distance. He has a bald but long head. I would have thought he would look a bit taller since he is nearly 5'8" in shoes.
Jake Is Back said on 23/May/08
He is just slightly taller than Seacrest.

A hair under 5'7, maybe 5'6 3/4 seems right.

in a vid with kanye he was same height or slightly shorter by like an inch and kanye is 5'8''

he looks as tall as a 5'8 woman with heels like 5'10
Franco said on 10/Aug/07
168 + 3cm shoes + 4cm lift or more = 175cm or more.

bloody Cameron Diaz in that picture is giving me a heart attack.....WOW hot!!!

well, back to the height....

Myers = 168cm
Cameron Diaz 172cm
Jon Doe said on 16/Jun/07
I think he's 5'6 and I always thought he did,lets looka t the evidence he's about an inch or 2 taller than Seth Green (5'4) and an inch shorter than Dana Carvey (5'7) and it's usually the guys who are anywhere under 5'7 who get the short jokes I don't see people picking on guys just because they're 5'8.Once you're over 5'6 for a guy you seem to look average with a certain build.

Well he is being honest about 5'7 1/2 and Glenn saw him with bad posture , or he is 5'6 1/2 and took 5'7 1/2 with shoes ! ... He did say 5'8 at the Mtv Movie Awards of 97 ... but he did look about 1 inch shorter then Stiller who only claims 5'7 ! ... At the 03 awards he did look same height as Martin Lawrence !
Editor Rob said on 15/May/07
From the horses mouth:

"Well, I'm 5' 7Β½", though I claim 5 '8"
the shredder said on 22/Apr/07
Rob , I don't understand why you have Myers at 5'7 and Stiller at 5'6.75 ? ... If you EVER watch Mtv Movie Awards from 1997 ... Stiller was about 1 inch taller that day ! ... Do they have photos of the 2 of them on the Internet ?
the shredder said on 20/Feb/07
Rob , you should put him below 5 ft 7 ! I remember watching an old video ... MTV Movie Awards 1997 and Myers was the host ! Well , there a part when he stands next to 5'7 max Stiller and Stiller looked a tad taller ! Also on the 2003 Awards show Myers walks to up Martin Lawrence and Myers looked a tad taller then him ! ... Lawrence 5'6 , Myers 5'6.5 , and Stiller 5'6.5 or 5'7 !

Ill try to fine them on !
the shredder said on 17/Feb/07
Rob , could you see 5'6.5 ???? Thats what Glenn saw !!!! btw , he does look 5'7 max next to Tom Cruise .
The Horse of FUNK said on 16/Feb/07
lol, was watching a video of that Kanye West and Mike Myers thing again (Myers' face is just pure comedy, a total "wtf?" face). He honestly looked about 1.5 inches shorter than Kanye who is a solid 5'8. So, I agree with Glenn, before I came here to get the skinny from here I already figured him to be 5'6.5".
leonari said on 14/Feb/07
DC: once more you prove your lack of height knowledge...
Glenn is the over estimate every guy by an inch...sad.
DC said on 13/Feb/07
I'd put Mr Meyers at 5-8. We've passed on the street several times, and he seemed a couple inches shorter than me. I'm 5-10.
Tom said on 20/Jan/07
This is a shocker!!!!! He always seemed tall in the Austin Power movies. I thought he was 5'10".
leonari said on 15/Jul/06
another guy whos height is overstated Rob. Glenn saw him. He goes for 5'6.5" or a tad higher but noot almost 5'8". He is never that tall.

saw him tues night at Mary's Fishcamp in West Village. 5'6" and a half tops.
Glenn said on 3/May/06
He is a hair under 5-7.
sf said on 3/May/06
Yes, i agree - there definitely is a difference in their shoes. I would give his shoes at least a 1/2 inch if not more height advantage. Rob, I don't think the footwear is similar as you suggest. Myers' shoes probably have at least an inch while Diaz probably no more than half inch.

my friend has all the mtv movie awards from 1994 till now . on the 1997 one when mike myers was the host there was a part when he was back stage and someone made a short joke.... mike turned around and said ' ha ha . you see thats what you get when your only 5'8 ' . i say 5'8 is his true height.

Editor Rob
yes, actually 172cm isn't unreasonable.
Alex said on 24/Feb/06
He is in the 5'7-5'8 range, not sure exactly which he is closer to, but in Austin Powers he looked like 6'0 with 2'8 Verne Troyer, shows of short Verne really is when a 5'7-5'8 guy looks 6'0.
UNK said on 9/Nov/05
Definite difference in their shoes. He has trainers she has flat sole non-cushen sneakers. A lot of girls wear those, they give very little height.
Qwerty said on 2/Oct/05
In this picture that pic of mike and cameron there actaully is quite a difference in there shoes, the one cameron is wearing are really flat (there th esame sort i wear) and the ones mike was wearing are quite a bit taller.

Take a Look very carefuly. Myers's tennis shoes are bigger than Diaz tennis shoes.

From a Gawker commenter, "today i saw mike myers with wife robin crossing sullivan st. and walking towards w. houston. he was dressed in a white button down shirt and she was in all black. he’s very short in person and his skin is in dire need of moisturizer."
None said on 16/Aug/05
In the movie THE CAT IN THE HAT he says he 6 feet tall. So maybe he grew to 5 ft 9.
McFan said on 18/Jul/05
He's about 5'7.5-5'8. If you look at him next to Diaz, she's an inch taller than him. She's wearing heels in the places she skies over him. Here again, you have a stocky guy with a big head giving the impression of someone smaller.
British Guy said on 1/Jul/05

I Think You Are Right Here.

This Guy Must Be Beetween 5ft 6in/5ft 8in, Right?
Michele said on 30/May/05
See this pic beside (I think 5'6.5"-169cm)cameron diaz without heels and (5'8" listed) antonio banderas. Mike looks a little taller than Cameron but quite shorter than a. banderas.
Jack said on 3/May/05
Cameron Diaz is only about 5'7.5 and has been mistaken for like 5'9. And in that picture she is wearing heels most likely so I'd say that Mike is about 5'6-5'7. Maybe on a good day he could his 5'7.5 if he isn't slouching over or anything and is standing completely straight up.
SOHO said on 12/Feb/05
Saw him at a Starbucks in SOHO in NYC. Stood right next to him. He's about an inch taller than me. Meaning he's 5'9"
