I think without shoes he may well be just 172.5cm. His footwear always seem to give him an inch and a half. At red carpet events his pants are always covering footwear.
Rising - 174 cm

Face to face with Casper Van Dien: Click Here
Considering Casper is his just barely over 5'9" by his own admission, Stephen certainly isn't any taller than 5'9" at best. Doesn't really look above 5'8.5" there.
Yeah Casper is taller in that movie.

How tall would his other daughter alaia Baldwin pictured above with them be rob? Possibly five seven looks a little taller than Hailey here

He looks between 5'8 through 5'10

Another example is Stephen's roughly 5'6" daughter in heels appears taller than he does in shoes: Click Here
In fairness, those are some big heels that should take her up to about 5'10", but just as I'd expect, that puts Stephen around 5'9.5" in shoes.

Anyone can look taller in a movie. Everyone whose opinion I asked said "not very tall", "pretty short", 5'8"-5'9" etc. He showed up at my cousin's wedding 20 years ago in a limo. I guess starring with Pauly Shore in bio-dome gets you the star treatment! Btw, my cousin is about 5'9" himself.

I think 5'9" flat is still the safest bet watching the usual suspects he can look over 5'9"
said on 4/May/17
This is a good downgrade, Rob since 5'9" is his absolute max. Here's an example where he can actually look 172 cm with 184 cm Trump: Click Here
But Trump is clearly standing better.
Editor Rob: I think a bit under 5ft 9 makes sense overall for Stephen.

My cousin grew up friends with him and has remained in touch. Stephen is about 5'8.5".

Maybe 5ft8¾ at worst. I think around the 5ft9 range, personally. He's considerably shorter than his brothers.

Could buy a strong 5'9".
said on 21/Mar/16
Looked at least 5ft9 in The Usual Suspects. About 1in shorter than Gabriel Byrne (5ft10½) and similar to Kevin Spacey (5ft9¾).
Editor Rob: there was a comment about him being shorter than Casper van dien in a movie, so it's not impossible he's 5ft 8.5
said on 6/Dec/15
Rob, have you seen Cutaway with Casper Van Dien? He looked good inch shorter, more like 3-4cm. It doesn't make sense how he is listed 5'9" or only 1cm shorter than Casper.
Editor Rob: he could be 5ft 8.5

Not quite 5ft10(178cm). But fairly close. I'd say 176cm. I remember Dmeyer saying a while back that he appeared a little over 5ft9. He doesn't look more than 2in shorter than Alec. The Baldwin brothers need to be looked at again.
Stephen 5ft9.25(176cm), Alec 5ft11(180cm), Daniel 6ft1.5(187cm) and William 6ft2(188cm)

Certainly looked 5'10" next to Gabriel Byrne in The Usual Suspects. Although, he only looked an inch taller than Pete Postlethwaite.
LAN Jiao said on 6/Nov/11
he can look 5-8 to 5-9. between it. maybe 174cm
kookierx said on 7/Mar/11
5-9 seems DEAD-ON right
but even 5-8.5" seems ok too

Alec Baldwin and Stephen Baldwin - Walk of Fame.
K4 said on 7/Feb/11
He's probably about 5'8.5 at best.
said on 25/Jan/11
Looked close to legit 5"10 Gabriel Byrne in Usual Suspects...177cm?
[Editor Rob: I don't know, but was he 4cm taller than 5ft 8 pete posthlewaite in Suspects? (haven't seen the movie for over 10 years so can't remember!)]
said on 23/Jan/11
Rob is 5"10 possible?
[Editor Rob: I saw some part of a film a year ago where he was beside capser van dien and might have looked a bit shorter than casper, so I'd throw 5ft 10 out the window.]
Alex2401 said on 8/Dec/10
In "The Usual Suspects' same height as Gabriel Byrne.
Mr. R said on 16/Nov/10
I saw Stephen in New York, following Alec like a little puppy dog. At best, he is 5-8.

Bob said on 20/Oct/08
5'8" max, he is a small dude all around. Alec is almost a forehead taller than him...
Mr. R said on 29/Jul/08
I saw Alec and Stephen the same night in New York, and Alec towered over him. At best, Stephen is 5-8 on a good day.
Lmeister said on 3/Mar/08
Yeah I agree about the footwear. I think that Stephen is actually shorter than Leto. I'd give Stephen 5ft8.5 - 5ft9 and 5ft9 - 5ft9.25 to Leto.
glenn said on 3/Mar/08
i see baldwin leaning in a bit.he could be 5-10 there.but he loves boots.i still say 5-9 for both baldwin and leto.leto loves vans.

Cheers Rob. Maybe you still could take 1/2 inches of Click Here
; ) He caan look average, but sometimes when wearing normal dress shoes not boots he looks kinda short.

Hes 5`8 max on apprentice
Antron said on 13/Feb/08
As far as being shorter than his brothers, he's not beyond the standard genetic variation. If he were 5'5 or 5'6 that would be very odd, but to be 3 or 4 inches different isn't really all that odd. I don't know anything about the Baldwin's parents, but my guess would be that their mother is avg. and their father about 6'0." IF that is the case, this is not bizarre at all. The environmental factors that affect height tend to be more severe than just smoking etc; more like consistent poverty and malnutrition throughout childhood and adolescence. For example look at the difference in heights in China out in the country versus in Hong Kong. I'd guess at least a 2 in difference on avg.
ed said on 28/Jan/08
regarding the brothers thing and him being shorter...it happens.
I have an older brother that is 6-2, my dad and other brother 6-0
but i struggle to reach 5-10 on a good day. it suks but that is the way
it is...reaons? i had a major heart defect when born... not sure what
reasons Stephen has probably just the luck of the draw
GSP said on 20/Jan/08
Did anyone see the apprentice? That one english guy hated baldwin after he spilled coffee on the computer. lol
When his brother Alec came it was a freakshow. The dude seriously looked like Frankenstein. Weird bloated looking face with bumps all over. WTF happened? LOL
Anonymous2 said on 10/Jan/08
I allways wonder if something stunted these guys growth. I mean hes an ok height and all but his brothers are so much taller its crazy. Did he smoke alot and do drugs as a kid perhaps? I heard Kiefer was a smoker and he seems small for his gene pool.
Of course it could just be genetic variation but I sometimes wonder if perhaps environmental factors played into someone ending up shorter than you would expect given their gene pool.
Gago said on 3/Jan/08
He's no way close to his self claimed 5'10, i think he's even shorter than 176, i remember in 2000 there was a tv movie "Cutaway", who had Casper Van Dien, and they had scene together, where they're walking side by side and you can see their footwear, and i was surprised that he looked almost 2 inches shorter than Casper, so I think Stephen is 173/5'8.
dmeyer said on 12/Mar/07
this guy might be a 176 guy
Antron said on 2/Feb/07
I think he's 5'9" barefoot. He isn't a a great deal taller than Pauly Shore in Biodome...why have I seen that movie more than once?
Jason said on 12/Oct/06
probably wearing cowboy boots in that police line up, or work boots.
said on 12/Sep/06
From "The Usual Suspects" line-up shows Baldwin to be about 5'11 in shoes, so perhaps 5'10 barefoot:Click Here
Height Tracker said on 27/May/06
Rob, perhaps Ola doesn't know her real height very well and is "overestimating" a bit. Just a thought.
said on 3/May/06
Well , here is Stephen with Richard Grieco , by the way , i wanna discuss Richard Height Click Here
Glenn said on 28/Jan/06
he told me 5-10.looks more 5-8 to me.
Brett said on 1/Nov/05
he looks tiny next to william his brother, If hes 5'9" in that pic with william, it looks like william is 6'3" odd then.
J_Mo said on 26/Sep/05
In bio-dome, where he co-starred with pauly shore, Pauly is listed as 5'7 1/2" at IMDB and Stephen looked about 2 inches taller than him; so this appears to be right on the dot.
Bleemo said on 16/Aug/05
Same pic as from del torro's section, in shoes he comes to about 5ft10 and some loose change, he's wearing boots though so I think Rob on the money with this guy.
Lmeister said on 10/Jun/05
http://web.wireimage.com/images/thumbnail/2191502.jpg I wonder how tall is Jeremy Piven maybe solid 5'9''???
CelebHeights Editor said on 17/May/05
Ola sent me her photo with Stephen and he certainly looks a couple of inches taller...this puzzles me as I swear I looked at dozens of photos of Stephen beside many other actors and 80% of the time he looks no more than a 5ft 9 guy...but ola assures he was taller than her 175cm height when she met him!
Ola said on 16/May/05
I met Stephen this weekend, and I suspect that he is a lot taller than 5'9, as I'm 5'9 and in the photo we took together he looks at least 3 or 4 inches taller than me.
Mr. R said on 10/Mar/05
I saw Stephen in New York several years ago after the MacBeth play with big bro Alec and Angela Bassett. Stephen was running around like a little puppy dog behind Alec. Both were shorter than expected - Alec is just below 5'11", and Stephen is at least 2 inches shorter. My guess: Stephen is 5'8.5", and Alec is 5'10.5". This is a first hand account!
Bulk Up said on 9/Mar/05
I think that is really close to his real height I think it is around 172 cm - 175 cm...Doing great job = ) Stephen sometimes appears taller though, because he has bulked up since The Usual Suspects...
