Wes Anderson's Height
6ft 1 (185.4 cm)
American film-maker, who directed such films as The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Bottle Rocket.
In 1999, he mentioned that "Whenever people describe me in print, they always say that I'm 6-foot-1 and something like 112 pounds. They make me out to be a total rail - which I am, but I hate reading my weight in articles."

112 pounds at 6'1? No way for that. He look very skinny and narrow shoulders but look at least a 135-138 pounds hippie director.

Rob, I don't quite get you when you say B could be a mid-morning range?
These figures are supposed to represent the overall morning (out of bed to be precise) to evening shrinkage. I think B is arguable for him. He looks similar to Bill Murray in Cannes photos and close to 2in taller Ed Norton. A sloucher though....
I'm saying he could be a little under 6ft 1 by afternoon.

Rob, which of these is believable
C-D is probably a likely range. B may well be a mid-morning range.

Anywhere in the 6' 0.5" - 6' 1" zone is arguable.

6 3/4 at worst. Can't see him only just being half an inch taller than Brody

He looks shorter than me, give him a 184 downgrade.
Slim 185 said on 14/Nov/17
He isn’t quite the 185 Cm guy, is seeing more 184 for him, he shouldn’t be listed higher than 6’0.75”.

How tall do you think his brother, actor Eric Chase Anderson, is? Click Here
Listed 5-8 on IMDB but looks more like he could be below 5-7. Definitely a significant disparity between him and his older bro.
Editor Rob: he could be nearer 5ft 7 than 8

At worst could be a fraction under 6ft1
Slim 185 said on 11/Nov/17
184.8 CM/6’0.75” would do him justice.

112lbs is ridiculous, he'd be close to death at that weight. Still underweight for his height though. I think he's around 140-150lbs
Tunman said on 10/Nov/17
112pounds is a joke imo,I reached 127 (currently around 133-36)at one point and I was very thin despite being only 5'9.5".The chances that someone taller turns 15pounds lighter than me are already very small except maybe for some female models and not many imo,but a 6'1 dude?Would have thought he weighs around 140pounds which is still very thin for him,at 112 he would be a walking dead,lol.

I don't think he was saying he was 112 pounds exactly but admits he's as thin as a rail, I could see him as low as 135-140ish maybe.

Yes! Finally! My favorite director. I knew he would be listed at an honest 6ft 1 too. I have seen all of his movies, true original content.

Does have over 2in on Wilson...
Animus said on 9/Nov/17
He can look 2½-3inches taller than Owen Wilson.

Edward Norton look 5'11.5" next to Wes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Nov/17
Long overdue....near 6ft1 was my guess
Danzon said on 8/Nov/17
I'n sorry but 112 pounds is underweight for someone of average height nevermind 6-1.

Good addition, love pages for directors. Hmm, I read an article that stated they were the same height but Bill Murray can seem to edge him, not by much, like a quarter inch or so, but I think there's a chance that Anderson's a weaker 6'1". I think Wes generally holds a bit of slouchy posture which does not help, when Bill is often standing his best and Murray could arguably be a fraction over the 6'1" mark up until recently. There's a lot of stills with them together on google.
Definitely with guys who are not over the six foot mark like Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Bruce Willis or Luke Wilson, Wes definitely can seem close to 6'1" as he has at least a good inch on any of them.
