Here is Ville Valo next to model Christel Karhu, whose height is listed as 5'10
berta said on 23/Jul/17
the 184 claim is trange i thought he was 185 and almost 186 sometimes. i wonder if he grew 1 cm after that claim. in my book he is 185
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Mar/17
At 184cm, Ville's BMI is 20.4, and this is healthy! If he's 186cm, then it is 19.9, which is STILL healthy, though the readings are on the low side.
Ideal, they say: 18.5-24.9, but I can remember when the recommended ideal was 20-24.9! For some reason, they lowered it, probably some time in the 1990's.

...and here we have another tall rock star and boy, he's on the skinny side, (under 11 stone, I believe!) so he could pass for a little taller! 🎸 I think he's 6ft1, as I have just read some of the comments below!

Ive met Ville few times. Im exactly 5'10 and I must say he is taller than 184. Id say 186 as i was reaching his eyebrows.

184 cm is spot on, he looked pretty tall compared to Bam Margera.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/14
Honest claim...can't argue with that. Wouldn't bat an eyelid if he said 6ft1
LillithVampire said on 4/Dec/12
He's 6 ft 1 for sure. I'm also 6 ft 1, and he was as tall as me.
Mariah said on 4/Nov/11
I am a big fan off ville valo he s my ideal. Whenever I feel down his music helps me cheer up. I would love to meet him some day hopefully.
Gloria said on 1/Aug/11
I've met Ville. He's about 6'1-6'2. He's so handsome!
tb4 said on 22/Jul/11
Looks 6`2 becose hes so skinny
Mikael said on 16/Sep/08
Valo is exactly as it states here, 6 ft 0.5 in (184 cm), he may seem tall but his weight/size makes him appear alot smaller. He takes a size Small shirt and 32 Pants which is what the average male takes.
Denis said on 15/Sep/08
Are u sure he's 6'0.5''? He always looked like a solid 6'1'' guy to me but maybe he looks taller because he's so slim.
nate said on 30/Aug/08
i know h.i.m.'s guitarist with the dreds is like 6'2 or 6'3.
Juha said on 13/Aug/08
Laihiala is very tall guy. I know he's cousin who is 191cm(6'3) and he said me that Laihiala is few cm taller than him. So I think Laihiala is about 195-198.
Ras said on 1/Aug/08
I think the ideal weight for a guy his height should be 185, pounds even at 70 kg he'd be near to scarecrow.
kristal said on 20/May/08
i love your cd's but am unable to listen to them now and that because i broke up with my boyfriend this year and i feel lost and i still have feelings for him all because i didn't want to make him move. i love bams movies that he has made and done love kristal
poisongirl_666 said on 15/May/08
Why are you guys all arguing on over a an inch or two. I have heard himsay that he is 6'2 and also have read it in many other things. It all depends onwhat kind of shoes or hat he's wearing or how his posture is. He is a pretty skinny guy so he might appear taller at times but he is definitely taller than 6 feet.. anyways I love Ville...been a hardcore fan ever since they started. He is so hot no matter how tall. But yeah its awesome that he is so tall! It just makes himthat much greater.... By the way, Rob? How could you not know that its Bam in the pic also?!? He is like famous and known for hanging out with Ville and being great friends.
nate said on 25/Apr/08
seriously cory? i thought he was 6 foot 2 at least before checking out this page. he is probably a full 6'1.
Cory said on 24/Apr/08
wow i thought he was way shorter then 6'1, i thought matbe 5'10 or something along those lines. but he's beautiful anyways! i love HIM and i love Ville!
rollabluntcallitaftermath said on 17/Apr/08
Wow, he's taller than I thought...I had been thinking maybe around 5'11
AppleSugar6 said on 1/Apr/08
Glenn, your so lucky! I wish that was me, in that photo with Ville. He melts my heart LOL. I love his Music, been a fan for about 4 yrs now,I especially love the new album Venus Doom, its great.
ulrika said on 26/Mar/08
his weight can not be 69 kg, he's way more skinnier than that!
nate said on 25/Mar/08
idont think he is anything less than 6-1.
Megan said on 3/Mar/08
u met ville and bam! my dream. some people are so damn lucky :/
Courtney said on 17/Feb/08
Uh, chris? It's probably all muscle. Have you seen that boy? Also, I'm 5'5" and weigh 147 lbs. I'm perfectly healthy and pretty slim, but it's mostly muscle. Muscle weights more than fat.
nate said on 8/Feb/08
looks more than 6-1 so ville, u might need to get out ur measuring tape again...
chris said on 21/Jan/08
152lbs., 6'1'' seems a little heavy for how Ville looks in pictures I've seen. I'm a little over 6'0'' and I weigh 130lbs., and I've always thought he looked thinner than me.
Jo said on 4/Jan/08
I've met Ville and was suprised to find he was shorter (6ft.1) than I had imagined. In photos he looks so lanky!
Jorma K said on 28/Nov/07
Ville has said himself that he's 185cm
galaad said on 18/Nov/07
I would said 188cm and 68kg more or least I think he has a normal shape
soulrocker said on 18/Nov/07
he's definitely taller than 6-1, cause when u see hin standing next to other ppl who u know r about 6-2, he's way taller than them!
robert vachon said on 12/Nov/07
paivaa valo olette hyvin laulaja olen robert ja tulen kanadasta asun aina kanadassa ville valo is look taller than he said but he look little bit skinny than 69 kg but that is no important for me at least he is cute ps im not gay
viktorija said on 13/Jun/07
Linde (the guitar player) was listed 6'2 on myspace. He does appear to be around an inch taller than Ville.
Albi said on 5/Jun/07
@Mike, I'm 5'10 too, have a not so good posture and drag with me around 200 pounds of body weight (no, its not fat, its mostly that other stuff). I also have quite developed deltoids (shoulders) and a somewhat thick neck. People mistake me for 5'8 MAX! I've had a girl even tell me that I cannot possibly be taller than 5'6.
Deadlife said on 21/May/07
Oh, my God!!! He is 1,83cm. I can't believe. He is also so good person. I haven't met him but I would like so much. I am only 1,67cm.
Pedro said on 30/Apr/07
I`ve met him too. He`s at least 6'0, maybe 6'1. Hard to say because he`s so skinny!
Mike said on 25/Mar/07
Jenny is right. Ville is definitely not more than 6'1.5" Skinny people always appear taller. I myself am 5'10". I am pretty slim and I have such great posture that people mistaken me for 6'0" LOL!
Mike said on 25/Mar/07
Danimal: H.I.M. and The 69 Eyes are not Gothic.
Anyway, anyone know how tall the guitarist(Linde) is?
Jenny said on 3/Feb/07
I've met Ville. Definitely 6'0-6'1. Like Ren says, he looks really tall from far away cuz he's so skinny. Burton is the tallest one and he's the one that's around 6'2-6'3. They're all tall by American standards.
Ade said on 29/Jan/07
Laihiala is 192 cm. (6'3.5"). At least that's what he has said.
finland said on 29/Jan/07
average height in finland for men under 30 is 179.8..so under 185 is not concidered tall..
Ghost said on 29/Jan/07
6'1 is very much correct. Could be slightly under, though. Stood beside him just the other day.
REds said on 21/Jan/07
Sorry , what means way taller ? 5 cm taller than you or more ? Are low -tops the same of short heel?
Sorry but I 'm not sure to understand everything about that!
Mike said on 17/Jan/07
I am 183 cm tall, that is nearly about 6'1. I met Ville Laihiala once and he was way taller than me, even though he just wore low-tops.
Ren said on 27/Dec/06
He might look taller because he is thin.my friend was 6'4 and i'm just over 6'2 and she looked VERY tall because she was very thin. also 184cm is just under 6'1 its 6' 1/2
FromFinland said on 17/Dec/06
Hard to say...for men it's something between 177-178cm nowadays.
JabberWocker said on 2/Dec/06
I just wondered...what's the average height in finland?
Jordan said on 1/Dec/06
6'1 looks right on the dot since it looks like glenn is leaning in the second pic. But in the first pic it appears that Valo is leaning more then glen so Valo might be antwhere from 6'1-6'2.5.
REds said on 30/Nov/06
Hey , I've one questions for henrik from Finland and for anyone who know something about that ,
Did you ever met Ville Laihiala from sentenced ? How tall is he ? For me he 's not so tall as he said in some interviews . Anyway he looks tall, but at least 6-1 not 6-3! maybe in high heels boots!
Glenn said on 13/Nov/06
Dont remember the footwear.
REds said on 12/Nov/06
Hey , for me he's about 183/184 cm maybe he look taller because wear a hat in that picks , but I saw him in concert and I was very near Valo , my opinion 184 cm at least .
Who doesn't love Ville? said on 30/Oct/06
In 98 Ville would have been 21 years old so in that time it's possible he could have continued to grow. I have a friend who swears he's between 6'3-6'5. She met him twice. I don't know about that estimate but I do believe he is close to 6'2
retha said on 16/Oct/06
ville's height is 6 ft 1 in (185cm) it's os cool i love ville he rock's he os cool i love the band him they rock and green day is tooo
Belynda said on 8/Sep/06
I am 5'9 snd he looks about the same hieght as my son and he is 6'2 about the same size as well.
Glenn said on 4/Aug/06
1st album I think was 1996.thats what I meant by 10 years.69 eyes I vaguely know the name,nothing else.I havnt seen hetfield since 1992.but in only a year span,I met him half a dozen times with as many pics.I have a group photo with Mettalica too.he appeared 6-3 in boots.
Danimal said on 3/Aug/06
Actually, they've been around since 1993. They released their first demo in 1995. I just recently got into The 69 Eyes, who've been around since '92. They're a bit heavier. Not so much into the Goth thing though. Have you ever met James Hetfield Glenn?
Glenn said on 23/Jun/06
He told me himself 6-1.I thought 6-3!
under the dark butterfly's rose said on 23/Jun/06
I've actually only seen 6ft 1 and in the killing lonliness video he looks pretty tall, and if not 6ft 1, then at least 6ft or 5ft 11. i have to agree with villelover though, he's absolutely beautiful especially in the killing lonliness video..those eyes...and that hair...wow
Jason said on 22/May/06
How old is he? Maybe he grew since 1998 when he said 184cm.
Glenn said on 21/May/06
I agree valo can look 6-3.I was surprised when he said 6-1.
J-Dog said on 21/May/06
I'd say he needs a slight upgrade, maybe 186cm trule dues look taller than most 188cm actors near Glenn do odd.
Rebecca R said on 12/Mar/06
I saw him (or shall I say H.I.M.) in concert here in Texas in October '05 and he is freakin tall. I'd say Valo's about 6'3".
His guitarist Linde Lazor is a beanpole, too. Superbly tall.
henrik said on 18/Feb/06
I`m from Finland, same country as he is and know that he is 186 cm because I am 183,5 and I have seen him many times in helsinki walking on the street and he has had a couple of times the same cater piller shoes as I and he has been 3 cm taller so he has to be at least 186 because I`m sure I`m 183,5.
villelover said on 10/Feb/06
as a girl who is almost six feet myself i always find that everyone i think is absolutley beautiful which ville is happens to be not so tall so i am just happy he is tall
villesgirl01 said on 29/Jan/06
ville is actually 6' ft 1" in he said so on steven untitled rock show S.U.R.S on fuse music channel it doesnt matter about his height he is still so goregous im glad he's tall.
Glenn said on 24/Jan/06
he looks 6-3 sometimes! he told me 6-1.
Anshelm said on 23/Jan/06
I've seen also 183 cm:
http://www.him-base.de/Homepage/ville-inter6e.htm (scroll to bottom)
Though this particular site said also 184 cm:
But a few websearches indicated, that 184 cm seems indeed official.
Never made guesstimates of this compatriot of mine myself.
