I've posted the comment I'm responding to below my statement. So, the woman in the picture isn't Val Kilmer's daughter (Jack's sister). Her name is Eva Vik and she directed Jack in a short film.

5'11.75" peak is most plausible in my mind. Just the slightest fraction off six feet, but not enough that many would notice.
Carlos Superfandango said on 10/Mar/23
I stood next to him at a Wimbledon tennis final in the 90s and was amazed that he was quite a bit shorter than me at 5'10. And not a big build either.I honestly guess hes around 5'8 if that.

Hey Rob I'm guessing that photo with RDJ was before his lift wearing days.
Editor Rob
Unless he's wearing elevator sandals πŸ˜„
Maahin Chowdhury said on 20/Sep/22
I’ll say Kilmer peaked anywhere between the 5’11-5’11.5 range. I watched Heat yesterday and he looked 2-2.5 inches taller than 5’9 De Niro. I doubt he was a full 6’0, maybe a weak one but he’s more of a 5’11 guy. Also in Top Gun he looked almost 3 inches shorter than 6’2 Anthony Edwards.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 3/Sep/22
Looked a strong 182 cm in Top Secret.
Maahin Chowdhury said on 13/Aug/22
Rob, do you think Kilmer at his peak would edge out DiCaprio if they stood next to each other?
Editor Rob
Yes, I would say Kilmer has the edge on Dicaprio at his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jul/22
Rob, is the full 6ft peak arguable?

In Top Gun, The Doors, Heat and Batman Forever it looked possible. I'd at least move it to 5ft11ΒΎ. Nowadays looks like he's struggling with 5ft11 like in the newer Top Gun
Editor Rob
Sometimes I've thought it's possible, but overall came to the conclusion maybe a weak 6ft suited.
Usthoszs said on 25/Jul/22
Good actor, bit over 5'11 in his prime imo

Out of bed:- 183.3-183.4
Before bed:- 181-181.7
HellBoundPower said on 2/Jul/22
He was definitely 6'0" prime. Probably down to about 5'10.5" these days in his 60s after illness.
Nek said on 9/Jun/22
Unless valkilmers wife in ghost and darkness is 5-11...then he is a womans height 5-6. Same S that actress
Sinclair said on 3/Jun/22
Six feet a good possibility; 5’11.5” equally possible. My conclusion: 5’11.75”.
Rsingh said on 19/Apr/22
182-183cm peak, current 181cm
Jawilder said on 21/Dec/21
5’11.75” at a low. Pretty tallish guy actually.

Just watched The Doors movie and he was phenomenal. I’ve been listening to the doors nonstop πŸ˜‚.
Kevin Lee Myers said on 20/Dec/21
I met Val in 2010. I'm 6'1". He was taller than me. But I also wear Converse Chuck Taylors. He was wearing nice leather loafers. His heel might have been thicker than mine giving him the extra inch over me. But he was a big guy pre-illness.

5ft 10 maybe, but not really looked at him
Victor Kruger said on 15/Oct/21
Peak over 5-11 definitely. Now maybe under
MichaelMyers said on 4/Oct/21
6'0" peak no problem. And at 61 years old now he's surely lost some height, tho idk how much.
Jug said on 13/Jul/21
I saw him about 12 years ago in a restaurant in New York. At 6’2 I towered over him. My friend who is 6’1 was two or three inches taller than him. I would say a weak 5’11 at the most. Jim Carrey was much taller in Batman and had to kind of slouch and shrink himself down in their scenes together.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Mar/21
Rob, is it possible Val is 5'11 3/4 peak and 5'11 now?
Editor Rob
he might be 5ft 11 at most today
berta said on 18/Feb/21
i saw a new photo of him and bruce springsteen and they looked the same height. bruce is now listed 175. maybe bruce really is 177 and val is down to 179 today.
Duster said on 18/Feb/21
Much nearer 5'8" or tops 5'9". I was a skinny 6' in the eighties, tried on the jacket he wore in top secret and it was tiny, absolutely tiny. I mean tiny, like a 13-year old's.

Many Happy Returns to Val Kilmer, who today celebrates his 61st Birthday. Yes, I saw him over Christmas - in 'True Romance' - the one film of his which doesn't show his face! 😯 He plays Christian Slater's mentor, in the form of Elvis Presley, and does a pretty good impersonation of Elvis's speaking voice!

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Dec/20
Rob, do you think current height of Val if stand tall still hit 5'11?
Editor Rob
with his throat/neck issues, it is harder to tell if he can measure taller than he looks just now.
Animus said on 26/Oct/20
Would he have been 5'11Β½ at 6 or 8 PM at night in his prime? Or perhaps a bit closer to 181cm?
Editor Rob
Maybe held onto 11.5 for a good chunk of the day
Juby said on 15/Oct/20
According to Peter MacGregor-Scott (producer of Batman Forever) from SFX Magazine #3, August 1995:

"(...) And Val's a big fella - he's six foot one, six two, and around 200 pounds (...)".

a little over 5'11"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/20
James, Sam Shepard could look a decent 6ft1 guy so not impossible for him to have been a little over it. I know he was listed 6ft1Β½ in places before...might be some validity to that.

Val could pull off 6ft, I don’t think he was too far from it. This listing is the shortest I’d go for. In Top Gun there was still around 3-4in between him and Cruise even though he had to wear socks
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/May/20
In The Island of Dr. Moreau there is no way Val is only 5'11 1/2. He look 6'0 or at least 5'11 3/4 with 6'2 1/2 David Thewlis when there was a scene both walking side by side barefooted.
James B 172cm said on 19/Apr/20
Rob in photos from 1992 with Sam Shepard he looks under 5’11.5 unless Sam was a little over 6’1?
Nik said on 12/Mar/20
I doubt he would tower over Tom Cruise, in his socks!
RichardSpain said on 23/Jan/20
183 or 6 ft barefoot ,when he was young I think he is a honest person. I believe his claim.
Bronco said on 11/Jan/20
Why would his illness affect his height? Unless everyone is referring to something other than the throat cancer.

In any case he has definitely lost some height, most likely a weak 5'11 today.
Editor Rob
It seems to have effected his neck and ability to hold good posture.

To be honest, in person I could see how he looks 5ft 10 nowadays, but I don't know if he's able to stand taller when measured.
Cpheonix said on 2/Aug/19
Seeing recent pics of him at the London Film and Comic Con 2019, he seems to have shrunk a lot (as well as looking really different). I would say 5'7ish now, comparable to Martin Sheen. So sad to see him in this state due to his illness.
TheBat said on 13/Jun/19
I always saw Val as being 6'0" in his prime. But I can definitely accept the 5'11.5" listing, especially for his age today.
Mister lennon said on 16/Aug/18
1 think he is 178-179 today,after his illness.
Connor Simpson said on 15/Aug/18
Would you say he was always that bit under the 6ft mark rob? I'd say he was comfortably over 5ft 11 in his prime maybe even near 6ft but I think he might have passed for 6ft in the batsuit at least, 5ft 11.5 is a good enough listing but 5ft 11.75 may also be possible, nowadays he does look barely 5ft 11 as you said before, maybe 5ft 10.5 or 5ft 10.75 today is on the cards?
Editor Rob
Over 5ft 11 for sure, but I can see how 11.5 is possible at times.
Mister lennon said on 15/Aug/18
I think 181-182 peak. But sometimes looked in the 180-181 range. Not sure.
crackpotdeamon said on 14/Jul/18
Rob, I think you should watch his recent videos and check out his recent photos. Looks like he lost a bit of height to me
Editor Rob
Yeah I just checked that out, looks like his neck is a bit effected through surgery, so probably lost another half inch or so.
MAD SAM said on 21/Jun/18
Nothing over 181 cm, maybe huge boots in Batman Forever made him look 6’+
CDS said on 25/May/18
Just seen a very recent photo of Val standing next to Springsteen, who is listed here at 5'9.5", and the 2 look dead even. And that's even with a lot of the comments on the Springsteen page suggesting he's lower than that. Now I'm not saying Val is that low, especially with a lot of the comments saying Bruce wears big boots, but certainly would argue for Kilmer needing both a peak and current height. Ftr, I would give him a peak height of 5'11.25" and current of an inch lower...
Sonnecker said on 29/Jan/18
A little over 180 cm I think, I'd go for 181 cm or 5'11"1/4. I always saw him at that height.

Other possibility;

183 cm in the morning

182 cm during the day

181cm night

He seems that. He is a solid 6 footer guy in the morning.Not more not less partners
Compare him to lift/boot wearing tom cruise in top gun, val was easily 5'11.75-6' in his youth.

I'd 5'11.75 him, Christian bale could fit into his batsuit with no problem.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 29/Jun/17
I doubt he's even a full 5'11"
RisingForce said on 28/Jun/17
I can't see less than 5'11" peak since he could look pretty tall, but he's been a big boot guy. Cowboy boots and other pretty thick style so naturally he'll look taller than he is at times. Maybe it's just me, but he sometimes strikes me as more height conscious than you might think. I don't mean that he wears lifts, but maybe he's a guy who would have liked to reach a full six feet.
Duffer 5ft 11 said on 27/Jun/17
Looks a weak six when he was quite young in Top Secret, a movie which KILLS me every time I see it. Probably still 5'11 today at 57, a tad over in the AM perhaps.
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jun/17
Better looking than Tom Cruise! 182 in the afternoon.
Sammy Derrick said on 13/Jun/17
Let it be known,I'm a massive BATMAN fanboy,however if you watch this video,Click Here Val Kilmer was 182cm/5'11.5 in the mid nineties pretty close to Christian Bale in size.
Bruce said on 12/May/17
Rob, do you think Val and Christian are the same size? Because Bale wore Kilmer's batsuit for the Batman Begins audition.
Editor Rob
yeah Bruce, they are probably very close if you measured least a Val from the 90's, today he is likely 1cm shorter.
berta said on 22/Feb/17
182 sounds good for him

He's 5'11".
mister_lennon said on 20/Nov/16
I think he is 181-182
Noah said on 11/Nov/16
Rob, do you think he usually looks shorter because of smaller footwear? In some movies he looks a strong six foot, others he looks barely five eleven or shorter.
Editor Rob
Noah, I think he could pull off near 6ft, but my feeling is he's one of those almost 6ft guys.
Tiago said on 4/Nov/16
He is a solid 5'11 FT guy

Its hard to call hes older weight problems he is sick he has had injuries in his movies denzel peake is six one so if there is an inch difference like people say 182cm no less

Looked near 6 feet in Real Genius
Josh Jeffords said on 5/Sep/16
He always looked tall but who knows often acted next to inflated gremlins like cruise.
Odd build too I'd bet money he was at least 6ft now fat and aged likely his billed 511.
Watch heat lots of big and talls he is well over average height.
Tom said on 12/Aug/16
Watching DΓ©jΓ  Vu I noticed Val is an inch shorter than Denzel Washington. Kilmer can't be any taller than 5-11.
Bruce 5'11 1/2 said on 10/May/16
This guy seemed about 6' even in Real genius.
Tom said on 24/Apr/16
In the movie The Ghost and the Darkness, Kilmer is the same height as Michael Douglas. It doesn't look like Douglas is wearing lifts. This can be seen in long shots when the two men walk together. Explain that! I think he's 5-10. Maybe max 5-11. He wasn't any taller than Kurt Russell in Tombstone. And looked shorter than Bill Paxton. And a lot shorter compared to Sam Elliot.
James B said on 24/Mar/16
Thought he looked more 5'11 than 6ft compared to Chris o'donell
Heylo said on 29/Feb/16
I've seen some photos of him next to 5'9 and 5'10 actors and I think he looks 6' to 6'1 most of the times but perhaps he uses a little bigger heel most of the times. He seems to like wearing slightly bigger shoes. Don't think he uses lifts though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/16
He didn't even look it in Top Gun beside Cruise. Anthony Edwards was 3in taller than him.
gorky said on 27/Nov/15
Rob, can you add Heat, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Spartan, The Doors to his roles
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/15
6ft peak, Rob?
Editor Rob
I ain't so sure
Sam said on 23/Oct/15
Christian Bale reportedly fit in Kilmer's batsuit when auditioning for the Batman role...both guys can look 5'11.5"-6'0" IMO.

Solid 5'11.5 peak 5'11 at 50s
Steve said on 20/Sep/15
The photo Pete linked shows Kilmer standing in front of a police height chart. He appears to be 5'10". Maybe all that weight compressed his spine. I tend to believe he was never any taller than perhaps 5'11" back when he was thin. And is no more than 5'10" today.
JJF said on 9/Jun/15
Yeah always looked a strong 5'11" to me.

James B said on 17/Mar/15
Perhaps with Ed Begley Jr in that particular scene he dropped to his low of 181cm?

Today 5'10.5-5'11 range
Alex said on 14/Mar/15
How tall is his son, Jack?

Click Here

The cap throws things off a bit as does Val looking down to talk to him, but the eye level is an obvious difference. 5'9?
CDS said on 2/Mar/15
Kilmer is an interesting case since he consistently can pull off 6'-6'1" on screen, looking at his build and proportions, and even in his debut film, as Nick Rivers in "Top Secret", he definitely looks it. His ID in the film "Salton Sea" even had him listed at 6'1". But when you really start breaking down the heights of the actors he has appeared with, his height does start going down more to the 5'11" range. For instance, he looked no more than 2" taller than 5'9" Mira Sorvino in "At First Sight", and was totally dwarfed by Ed Begley Jr. in "Batman Forever". He did claim when he tried on Jim Morrison's clothes for "The Doors", they were too small for him, but I doubt Morrison was ever anything more than 5'9.5"-5.9.75" (minus the trademark big hair and boots he always wore).
Hypado said on 28/Feb/15

For sure 5'11.5" peak height is fine, but today he does look a bit shorter...maybe 5'11" today?

These are the heights of all the Batman actors.The first part is the answer I get from any search engine and the second part is the height listed on this website.The average height of a Batman actor is 6'0(183cm)/5'11.25(181cm).
Val Kilmer is the average height and size of the Batman actor.
Lebensdorf said on 14/Nov/14
I saw him in New York. Stood right next to him at a cafe. I'm 6'1, he was about three inches shorter than me. He might be 5'11, but I think more like 5'10.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Nov/14
Looked an easy 6' next to De Niro in Heat actually.
SAMMY DERRICK said on 14/Oct/14
A mugshot taken in 2011 revealed that Val is 5'11.5 thanks to his blonde but graying mane.I personally think he was 5'11.5 in 1995.He had a realistic height and build for Batman.
Andrea said on 12/Oct/14
So, you think he already lost a big inch at 36, when he was in batman? It seems strange, you're almost 40 and you're still at your "peak"!
Editor Rob
I'd need to rewatch his scene with ed to say how tall he can look. I know in that deja vu he didn't look much smaller than someone like bruce greenwood or denzel. At peak anywhere in 5ft 11-11.5 is possible.
Andrea said on 12/Oct/14
So, you're saying Val is 5'10.5-5'11 range tops? Why is he still listed at 5'11.5 then?
Editor Rob
at his peak he might have been, now he can look barely 5ft 11 at times though.
Andrea said on 11/Oct/14
Rob, more chance he's 5'10.5 or Ed Begley Jr 6'5 plus? Ed completely towers him in Batman, like at least 5.5 inches, noway there are only 4.5 inches between them! Watch it, if you don't trust me :)
Editor Rob
Begley and Goldblum done Transylvania 6-5000, I think 6ft 4 for both is fine.

Judd said on 9/Oct/14
when i watched the doors (1991) i tought he was at least 6'1...he looked very tall and thin in that movie, but in others movies he looks a bit shorter...5'11.5" seems accurate to me as a peak height but in the recent years he probably lost a small amount...

Val looks a legit 6'0" with shoes on .watch the movie Heat and he dwarfs 5'9 bobby de niro ..when bobs on the telephone you see val stand in next to Bob he towers him

the measures they have in the police are quite accurate,is there any chance ive lost 1.5 cm in these 20 years??thank you.
James B said on 1/Apr/14
The only time kilmer has looked remotely close to 6'2 was in the dance scene in the movie 'top secret'. In most of his movies could look anywhere from 5'10 to 6'0.

Even in top secret didn't look over 6'1.
mister_lennon said on 31/Mar/14
No way kilmer is 6'2 or even 6'1. He could look 6 in a good day and with great posture, but nothing more at all. He is a solid 5'11 guy.
nikos said on 29/Mar/14
i want to ask you something rob, i was measured by the greek police when i was 23 yrs old for my i.d and the result was 181.5 cm i.d expired this year [20 years later] and i went to the police to renew it.I was measured and i was found to be 180cm tall!!Is this possible rob and if it is, is it normal??if you know please answer me ,thank you.
Editor Rob
depends on how they measured - if they used a height rod/device there is always a chance it might not have been as accurate. I would always do your own measurement in your house as you can then take the time to know exactly how tall you are.
Knowitall said on 28/Mar/14
How a person looks on film compared to how tall they really are can be surprising. If he's six-two then I guess I'm six-three!
mister_lennon said on 27/Mar/14
kilmes is at least 5'11. he looks every bit of it. and with good posture and in a good day, he could look's 6. 6'2 is too over the top for him.
James B said on 27/Mar/14
Kilmer looked close to 6' though in kiss kiss bang
Knowitall said on 26/Mar/14
Remove the hair and the top of his head would hit the five-eleven mark:

Knowitall said on 25/Mar/14
Well, if he was five eleven, please explain why he looked slightly shorter than me. I was kind of surprised because I thought he was at least six feet. He was also quite heavy. Maybe he lost height due to weight.
the shredder said on 24/Mar/14
MD , Please stop telling people what to do. You come off as a bossy brat.
Knowitall said on 24/Mar/14

I posted them separately because I discovered them at different times. One problem is posts are held back while the moderator goes over them.

This business of some people becoming enraged by what they consider to be trolling is laughable. And indicative of some taking forums far too seriously than they should.

This website is for entertainment purposes. Lighten up.
mister_lennon said on 24/Mar/14
sorry, but val kilmer is 5'11, not 5'10. in the pictures with Tom Hanks, he has a bad posture and Hanks is closer to the camera. In other pictures, he looks taller than Hanks.

Chris O'donnell is a strong 5'8 or a weak 5'9 dude. Val is about 2 or 3 inches on him, but in his pictures as batman he looks even taller because his boots and costume is bigger than o'donnell's.

But Val is a solid 5'11 guy, even he could looks 6 sometimes. George Clooney is a little bit shorter, he is 5'10.
James B said on 24/Mar/14
Can look 5'11 flat as well in some of his past movies such as top gun, batman forever, at first sight,

Knowitall, it was not at all necessary to use five different posts for five different photos in one day. I'm much more on your side as far as Val's height is concerned than Dan's, but this is just trolling. This is simple internet courtesy, people.
nikos said on 23/Mar/14
i read everyones opinion on val s height the list is on the spot rob [182cm]but you need to downgrade carrey and kidman immediatly!!!

The Kilmer I saw was around five-ten. Maybe he wears big lifts when he appears in public. When I saw him he was wearing normal shoes.

I can guarantee I am 5'9. My license has me measured at 177cm in flat shoes. Am at work ATM so will post picture of me and Chris Lloyd on the same day. In the pictures, he looks two inches shorter than Val!

Time to get real here. The Batman shots are not accurate. You think studio publicity doesn't manipulate them? If you don't, I have a great bridge to sell you.

Pic of 5'9" Chris O' Donnell and Val. Height difference looks to be the same as Dan's photo. 6'2" is not out of the question...
Dan said on 20/Mar/14
@ Knowitall,

I am 5'9, measured barefoot at night by myself, my fiance and several others over the years. Morning height I am 177cm, but I always go by night height.

@ Shredder, are you saying I look shorter than 5'9 or Val looks taller than 6'2?
MD said on 20/Mar/14
Yep, that's definitely not 6'2" on 5'9", but I, too, don't believe that Dan is 5'9", either.
Brad said on 20/Mar/14
As listed 1 foot from me. Dan needs to stop the G-isms. Russell is a notorious big boot guy, throw out anybody by him to judge.
Knowitall said on 19/Mar/14
Dan, pardon, but either you're telling us tall tales (pun intended) or you're nowhere near being five-nine barefoot.

First of all, Chris Lloyd is slightly over six feet tall. I've met him a couple of times. By the way, very nice man. He's at least an inch taller than me. Perhaps as much as an inch and a half.

The time I saw Kilmer he wasn't taller than me. He looked shorter by about an inch. I'm five-eleven.
Dan said on 19/Mar/14
@ Knowitall,

I can guarantee that I am 175cm (I go by my night height BTW), which is why I was shocked at home tall he was! My fiance is 6'2 and she was like a quarter inch taller than him, if that! He had to be wearing some massive lifts, as I met Christoper Lloyd on the same day and he was no wear near as tall as Val in my pictures.
the shredder said on 19/Mar/14
That is not 6'2 vs. 5'9.
Knowitall said on 19/Mar/14
Colin Farrell, Angelina Jolie and Val Kilmer:

Click Here

Colin is supposedly five-nine. I believe he's more like five-eight. He's obviously wearing lifts. But so is Val!

Dan, I don't believe you're five-nine. Measure yourself barefoot. But don't stretch yourself. Just stand there erect but relaxed. Most people think by stretching upward that's there correct height. It isn't.

That height chart Val was standing in front of showed him under six feet.

Kurt Russell is five nine. He wore huge lifts in Tombstone.

Either you're not five-nine, or Val borrowed Stallone's boots from Judge Dredd!

I see where the website I posted the link to which showed Val next to a height chart was quickly yanked by someone.
Dan said on 18/Mar/14
I met Val in 2012. I'm 5'9 (175cm on the dot) and he looks around 6'2 next to me! Here is the proof! Click Here

I was wearing cons and I didn't see what shoes Val was wearing. I was actually surprised at how tall he was. Kurt Russell is my height but looks taller than me in Tombstone!

Let's see you explain away this photo:

Knowitall said on 15/Mar/14
My posts are completely useless only to those people who cannot or will not accept the truth. Seems there are loads like that.

I've seen Kilmer in persons stood not more than five feet from him. He looked five-ten max.

I see lots of celebs because first I live where they live and hang out and second, I worked in the biz for forty years. You'd be surprised how many are not their officially listed height.

And one more thing, I find those who accuse others of being trolls should first look into the mirror.

Mamun said Kilmer is 5'11" max. Kilmer had a significant footwear advantage over Mamun.

Rob perhaps consider having another look at kilmers peak height?

Click Here

In the video ed begley who is listed at 6'4 clearly looks more than 4.5 inches taller.

I know u think that val is no less than 182cm but how do u explain the size difference between him and Ed? I'd even go as far as saying he looks 5'9 range if ed is only 193cm.
James said on 9/Dec/13
oh wait Ed was upgraded
James said on 9/Dec/13
Lo sgozzatore says on 8/Dec/13
The fact is that if Ed Begley Jr is only 6'4, he does struggle to look 5'11 with him, he really dwarfed him in Batman Forever!

He's actually 6'3.5 according to this site..... he did tower over both Jim Carey and kilmer. Carey posture was poor though.
James said on 9/Dec/13
Rob am i right in thinking that val kilmer is probably not over a flat 5'11 in 2013? He's in his 50s and given his weight problems in the past some height loss is not impossible?

Tallest i have seen Val look was that dance scene in the movie top secret where he looked 6'2 but he was very slim back then and had on heeled shoes in that scene. In Batman Forever he did not look over 5'11 though.....
Editor Rob
at times he can look just 5ft 11, but may still be above it if measured.

Actually I met Val Kilmer a couple of years ago, he seemed a little taller than 6'0" He was likely around 6'1" when I met him. I'm 6' and he had at least half of an inch over me.

5'11 flat
Han said on 30/Sep/13
Maio, even if he had shoes, they could give him around 2 cm(a weak inch), and hunching over can make you lose 5 cm/2 in, at least 3 cm, so he could be a proper 6-footer. Not saying that I am 100%, though.
Balrog said on 19/Aug/13

dean never stands at his tallest in photos...that's why I'm dropping several cm myself with dean, to even the photo up.

Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Nov/12
Well, when he did batman i dont think he could have already lost height, if any... But he was still dwarfed by Ed Begley Jr! I saw some 6'5 listings for Ed Begley Jr. If Val Kilmer were 6'0, they would make sense!
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Nov/12
For once i agree with you, James :)
He was dwarfed by Ed begley jr!

it's probably time at least a little was taken from this although there is always a chance kilmer has lost a little himself aswell by now, I know last year there was a mugshot from a movie that could make him look struggling to hi 5ft 11.

Hey Rob check this out Click Here his head is clearly under the 6ft mark , he is 5'10.5" at best IMO , 5'10 is the truth

Shame it's not a full view because that board he's standing behind could be positioned higher up to give him a shorter height, you never know.

In tombstone Kurt Russell looks to be taller than Val Kilmer and he's about 5'9 was he really wearing 3 inch thick shoes during the entire film?
Godred said on 4/Aug/12
I think he`s a fraction under 6 ft.
John said on 2/Aug/12
He's a little taller than Jim Carrey in 'Batman Begins,' but Carrey is hunched over to match his character's social awkwardness - probably reducing his stature by a half-foot. If Carrey is 6'3 then 6'2 seems about right for Kilmer.
achello said on 30/Jul/12

Oops, I forgot to mention that on that first time meeting Val, he was wearing dress shoes, not thick soles.

I've met Val - for real met him - on a number of occassions, and spent a good amount of time talking to him one on one. My husband is 6'2". My father and two of my brothers are exactly 6'0". So I have a good perspective on Val's height I think. I remember thinking the first time I met him that if I took one step in and put my arms around him, his chin would pretty much fit right on top of my head, just like my husband's does. He is soooo not 6 feet or below. He is at least 6'1" and probably at bit taller. My call is a solid 6'2".
Connor said on 13/Feb/12
Rob im confused here in the first picture he looks bang on 183cm, but in the second he looks 180.2cm because he is looking up to be taller but may look either 179-180 if he looks directly at the camera could you explain this please?

he raised his eye-level considerably above the normal level to look taller. He's under 183cm. Probably in the 180-182cm range if he actually not looking up toward the sky for pictures.

rob in batman forever ed begley looked like he could almost look over the top of val kilmers head.

Even 182cm looked too high next too Begley. Do you think kilmer could have been just 180cm all along? If Kilmer is 182cm then Ed Begley must have peaked at 6'4.5 or 6'4.75? if val is 183cm then there is no way that ed is anything under 6'5.

is trying hard to look tall would be 5'11 1/2 there but its funny that the fact guy is wearing cowboy boots is not mentioned in caption since they do offer two inchs in height and one inch advantages over most other shoes i mean if the guy was wearing space boots and looked 6'1 instead that wouldnt be mentioned either val kilmer is 5'10 1/2 without his shoe advantage

Danny Glover doesn't look 6ft3-6ft4 at all in that pic. Even if Val Kilmer is a little over 6ft (which I doubt) and Jeff Goldblum is a little over 6ft4 (which I don't doubt), Glover looks 189cm max.

Glover looks like a weak 6'3 in the pic yes. possibly by late 1998 goldblum was no longer 194cm?

That mugshot is very surprising, I always tought that he was a strong 5'11.5, he looks barely 5'11 in that pic and with shoes on....odd.
In the movie "At First Sight" he was comfortably taller than legit 5'9 Mira Sorvino, maybe he really lost height....
He was for sure 5'11.5 at peak but today looks to be 5'10 flat, it's strange because 1.5inches of loss at barely 52y it's an huge amount.

Hes barley 5'11 here. If you follow the outline of his head very carefully it barley reaches the5'10 mark. His hair is what gives it that extra inch or so. If has shoes on here he's gotta be 5'9.
Hansen said on 22/Jul/11
he look to be about 182cm here. out of this picture he look alot like 5ft11 flat in any photo taken. also can look 6ft in some occasion. i bet he wore elevator shoe in purpose. he is 180cm

Great actor. Slightly above average height. About 5'11"-5'11.25" without shoes at his peak. About 5'10" now that he's older and chubbier.
5'8.18758596 said on 4/Jul/11
The guy looks around 181-182cm, but his relatively thin frame can make him look smaller, I'd call it 182 spot on, nowadays he must be 5'10 or below, he's crazy fat for real.

i remember frank2 stating that val kilmer was probly under 5'10" these days due too his weight gain. frank2 pretty much had val kilmer NAILED.
James said on 30/Jun/11
Alex if he was wearing cow boy boots then i woulden't even bet on 182cm since they tend too give more than just half an inch i think?

Frank2 said he was to eye to the same height as him so that could mean.....

Peak 5'11 (180cm)
Today 5'10.25 (178cm)

The guy is not healthy and obese so that is bound to have knocked some height off him.
James said on 29/Jun/11
rob are u considering downgrading val soon?
Editor Rob
I don't know yet
James said on 28/Jun/11
This is so suprising i used to think this guy was a true 6ft and now with all this talk of 5'10 well....... just goes to show you how much hollywood distorts the height of film stars.

And yes i would agree next to Ed Begley in Batman Forever he looked under 6ft.

Hey Rob just on a side not Mamun mentioned that Val had cowboy boots on the in pic..... do you think that might mean he could even be under 182cm?
Editor Rob
yeah there is a chance he is under
mike said on 17/Jun/11

182cm? Considering he has shoes on (I would imagine so) he barely looks 5'9 in front of that chart... Doubt that's his height though. I think 5'11.5 is fair.

Johan Cruyff said on 5/Apr/11
Val Kilmer's height's are:

Morning (out of bed)= 6'0.2" (1.83,5 m)
After 1,5-3 hrs= 5'11.85" (1.82,5 m)
After 5-10 hrs= 5'11.45" (1.81,5 m)

If you see the scene in "the Doors" when he has been arrested, in the photos he was a little shorter tha 6 feet! Really he wasn't straight but probably in this photo he wore Jim Morrison's boots, where heel is probably over 1 inch, so i think he's best height was 6'0.2" (1.83,5 m), not over! Now i belive he's in the 1.82-1.80 m range!
James said on 22/Mar/11

Looks right about 6 ft or so.
Jeremy Yach said on 5/Feb/11
Hmm, could be, I am crazy about this site. I mean no offense, but the 0.25" don't really matter that much to me; there are people here that are extremely good at getting the heights dead on; now 0.5" does matter! Hah! ;) I am great at weight guessing though; I could be a Carnie.
Seriously though, find the trailer for "The Traveler" released last month and see if you can tell me how y'all think he looks gigantically tall. The movie (horror) is something in that genr that acually rocks these days; where it is hard to find in that genre.
I list that to see what his height appears to all of you with the keen peepers. (And Idon't mean "gigantic" literally, and some of this happened, mayhaps, to seem sarcastic, it was not; I really just wonder about the way these things look i.e.I know Elijah Wood wasn't actually hobbit-sized.)
James said on 4/Feb/11
Could be 5'11.25 today. 5'11.75 peak.
Jeremy Yach said on 1/Feb/11
Sorry, the movie in which Mr. Kilmer is the tallest person in is "The Traveler", not. "The VVisitor" Hah! You could also add "Willow" as Matmartigan.

He looks quite formidable in "The Visitor", which I am watching now. 6' looks tall in RL to me (5'10"), but he must have lifts, camera tricks, or short co-stars.

@ James perhaps you are right, in most of his films he seems just about tall but 182 is just about where incipient tallness starts.

Never did see him below 6'0. He does have a tall appearance but with other people he loses it. So above average.
