I would say he was a pretty strong 5'11 at peak. He seemed short in 3 Men because Selleck and Danson are tall guys.

i dont think he was taller than 179 at peak maybe a tiny fraction at best because he is in very good shape and still looks only 177 guy these days. dont think a guy that healty have lost more than 2 cm. he looks short beside dwayne johnson

Around 180cm
Timothy Jones said on 31/Aug/17
I would have to say around 5ft11. Does not look short at all, looks around 5ft11 in three men and a baby and around the same in the Police Academy movies.
Don said on 26/Aug/17
Was just watching Police Academy. NO WAY is he 5 foot 10. Looks around 5'11 or 5'11.25

To me Steve was more than 179cm. Maybe 181 cm????
RichardSpain said on 28/Jul/17
Are you sure Rob??
I thought he was typical guy of 182 cm - 6 feet.
Nowadays 180cm ???
From my point of view of course...

Whoa google is way off again I mean 6' really? 5'11.25 max
James said on 4/Jun/17
In the Police Academy movies I always thought he was 5'11

Ian Ziering is no taller than 5'10. Guttenberg is 5'9.

There is a pic on Rock's instagram where Guttenberg looks 5'9 at most If you give the Rock's height of 6'2.5 on here.

Could have been 5ft11 peak. I thought he was at least 6ft. That mullet added a fair bit of height
truth said on 26/Jun/16
He looked definitely around 5'11 peak to me. Maybe now closer to 5'10.
MD said on 10/Mar/15
Even with Ian's footwear advantage, that is obviously more than an inch.
[Editor Rob: it's on the street with sloping pavements.]
MD said on 9/Mar/15
Seriously, nothing?
[Editor Rob: it is very possible by mid 50's he's lost height and is looking a weak 5ft 10 today.]
MD said on 5/Mar/15
Rob,

Even with the footwear advantage, how much is this currently listing off with him, here, next to a 5'11"(ish) Ian Ziering?

Looked shorter than Jim Belush in TV series "According to Jim".
Lebensdorf said on 18/Nov/14
He was 5'11 at peak. In 3 Men and a Baby, he looked this height, compared to 6'4 Selleck and 6'2.5 Danson. He seemed kind of short in that movie, but that's what a 5'11 guy looks like next to tall guys like that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/14
Julian, first off Dan Aykroyd was not in Diner and secondly Daniel Stern and Tim Daly were the tallest
Terry said on 7/Dec/13
Good actor. In Three men and a little lady he looks about 5'10 so he is average.
the shredder said on 2/Nov/13
Rob , no way is he the 5'9 Mr.R saw or even just 5'10.5 , He looked in the 5'11 , 6 ft range with Olivia D'abo who you met and is 5'5 , He is about 5'1.5.
Julian St. Pierre said on 9/Mar/13
5.10.5 is correct. He is the second tallest male actor in the 1982 film The Diner, after 6.1 Dan Aykroid
c-mo said on 28/Jul/12
how is this guy 179cm when he is as tall as michael winslow ?

i think guttenberg is 181-183cm
Mr. R said on 8/Dec/11
Steve is 5-9. I have seen him a few times in Hwood. Onscreen, he wears lifts which make him look 5-11.
Mr. R said on 8/Dec/11
Steve is 5-9.
Godred said on 8/Dec/11
@joe - 6`0 is too much, he`s either 5`10 or 5`11 in shoes.
joe said on 28/Nov/11
Met him in Miami. I'm 5'7''. He's a strong 6'0'' 182cm
jasperwazap said on 22/Nov/11
Guttenberg was 5'10.5''-5'11'' range in Three men and a little lady opposite tall men Tom Selleck 6'4'' 193cm and Ted Danson 6'2'' 188cm. he looks short next to two tall actors but he is medium height range so 5'11''(180cm) is about his height.
Lebensdorf said on 24/Oct/11
I'd say about 5'11'', compared to Tom Selleck in "3 Men"
MHouillon said on 28/Apr/11
He is nor was never ever 5'9". I'd say Was like 181cm in the PA movies and today a 5'11 flat.
Danimal said on 3/Feb/11
The man looked 6'0" in ALL Police Academy's he was in. He was the exact same height as Michael Winslow and this is a Michael Winslow from 24-27 years ago... 5'9" is just bunk. NO WAY was Moses Malone (Hightower) 10-11" taller than him and no way was David Graff 7" taller than him... Minimum 5'11" for Steve...
Larc186-188cm said on 6/Jan/11
Rob this guy needs an upgrade, I mean 5'10.25? That's just too low for him...

He looked the same height (if not a bit taller in some scenes) than Michael Winslow (who is listed 5'11.5 here) in Police Academy movies.

5'11.5 is closer, could be even 6'0, he doesn't look that short next to David Graf (Tackleberry) who was probably around 6'3 (and RIP David).

Guttenberg was also almost 4 inches taller than Sharon Stone (who is 5'8) in Police Academy 4. And was still taller then her, even when she weared heels during the party scene in the same movie.
He also towers G.W. Baley and Bobcat Goldthwait (both 5'7).

5'11.5 is his height.

[Editor Rob: well 179cm might be a little fairer, maybe he has lost height, I wouldn't have thought much though.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Nov/10
Could be 5"11
Anonymous said on 29/Oct/10
Police Academy 4 was on TV recently.....lots of shots where he's stood with Michael Winslow (Jones in the films)who is 182cm. Looks to be exactly the same height!
whoopiRULEZZZZ said on 5/Jun/09
no way 'Stiffelio' and 'glenn'. my boy Guttes easily hits the 5 10 mark on any day of the week, liftz or no liftz.
Caitlin said on 4/Jun/09
I love Steve Guttenberg. He's seems 5'11''.
glenn said on 29/Apr/09
look to see if this is on the discs rob.there might be 2 of them.5-10ish kind of guy.can look as low as 5-9ish for some weird reason.in person that is.5-10.5 tops.
AD said on 28/Apr/09
Here's a good picture of him next to 5'6" Henry Winkler, both wearing the same sized heel in panto ....Steve's a good 5 or 6 inches taller than him!

Was watching Police Academy and he appears about the same as 5'11.5" Michael Winslow, and is a lot taller than other cast members apart from the seriously tall ones like Bubba Smith and David Graf. I think he's nearer the 5'11" mark.
Kratos said on 6/Apr/09
He is surely beetween 5'10 and 5'11...he looked a lot taller than Bob Goldthwait (who seems 5'7) in Police Academy 2.
5'9 is ridicoulus,there is no way he is that short.
Today maybe a flat 5'10.
Lebensdorf said on 1/Nov/08
He looks about 5-10 or 5-11 compared to Tom Selleck, who is 6-4, in Three Men and a Baby. I don't think he's shorter than 5-10, Mr. R., at least on screen he doesn't appear so.
Mr. R said on 4/Aug/08
I stand by my eyewitness account of 5-9.
ted said on 14/Aug/07
it's strange.Some people seem very close to 6ft but they are not.I think steve can look 180 on a good day
Random Person said on 19/Jul/07
Age has seriously hit him...
mike said on 14/Jul/07
Yeah I always thought he was 6' range.
Chris said on 13/Jul/07
The guy looks of average height to me. Between 5'9" and and 5'11", but it's hard to tell more accurately than that from films.
Anthony said on 13/Jul/07
Wow. He gives a much taller impression. I thought he was at least 6'. But 5'9 looks right.
Josh said on 13/Jul/07
5'9 the most
Bad Radio said on 12/Jul/07
looks 5'9 to me.
glenn said on 12/Jul/07
he is closer to 5-10.
Mr. R said on 12/Jul/07
I feel vindicated. He looks like the 5-9 that I reported him to be.
glenn said on 11/Jul/07
he was 5-10.i have another from 1993.i couldve sworn he was 5-9 then.his posture was relaxed here and i had better pavement.
Derek said on 11/Jul/07
I think he's closer to 5'9".
Dan (Danimal) said on 11/Jul/07
He's not a young man anymore. I believe he was close to 5'11" in the mid 80's.
Stiffelio said on 11/Jul/07
He's barely taller tahan Glenn. 5'9" max. Rob, please reconsider downgrading him.
Lucas_6' said on 11/Jul/07
maybe he's leaning ... anyway - max 175cm
Anonymous said on 11/Jul/07
Its time for a downgrade on this one Rob! ...to at least 5'9
Melvin said on 11/Jul/07
Man I always thought he was close to six foot back when he was popular.
Editor Rob said on 11/Jul/07
The guttenberg does look quite short with you. On Veronica Mars he didn't look as short as this.
Rut said on 16/Jun/06
I meant give me..wrong spelling..
Guttenberg could be 179cm by the way..

[Editor Rob: he's had some scenes in trainers with no obvious lift beside both kim cattrall and leslie easterbrook...

maybe he shrank in the late 90's, just as his career began to shrink away...]
Rut said on 14/Jun/06
Funny man indeed, let's say atleast 5 nine, but certainly not six feet..
By the way, Rob gife me e-mailresponse in case you seen my old clip on my site..
Editor Rob said on 10/Apr/06
This guy could be lift man, but I mean in one of the police academies with sharon stone he surely couldn't look near 5ft 9?...hmm, this guy could have been borrowing gibson and stallone's footwear when they weren't looking!
Glenn said on 3/Apr/06
Then he fooled you with heels or lifts.I have one with him.he is 5-9.
Gina said on 3/Apr/06
He is DEFINITELY taller than 5'9''... I met him 20 years ago in NYC after his SNL appearance and he was probably 6 feet tall. We took a photo together and he is a few inches taller than me and I'M 5'9''!

[Editor Rob: yes, I upgraded this guy recently - I met one of his co-stars and think closer to 5ft 11 in his heydays.]
Glenn said on 19/Mar/06
He can even look 5-8.
Anonymous said on 19/Mar/06
You should watch Steve in the movie "Boys From Brazil" starring Gregory Peck. Steve appeared lots of times beside Sir Lawrence Olivier who was much taller than him. Sir Lawrence Olivier is 5'10".........
Sue said on 18/Mar/06
I would have thought he was nearer 6ft. I'm quite shocked really. I guess it must just be that police uniform...
