How tall is Wesley Snipes

Wesley Snipes Height

5ft 9 (175.3 cm)

American actor best known for his role in the Blade trilogy of films, Demolition Man, White Men Can't Jump and Passenger 57. In a 1998 interview it mentioned: "As a kid, he was short (5-foot-5), had a Napoleonic complex and often got into trouble, says actor Wesley Snipes. But he was never bad. He knew by the time he was 14 that he wanted to be a performer. It just took the world a while to realize it. And after he turned 17, he finally grew five inches in a year and a half". On the Howard Stern show he claimed "I'm really only about Five Eleven", although fellow actor, Orlando Jones, once said "lololololol I'm 6'1 Westley Snipes is like 5 foot 7"

I’m having a look at the film Chaos, and first on the scene is Wesley Snipes. I’ll soon be able to compare him with Jason Statham. As usual, it’s the cast that attracted me to this film on Film Four. The duo are excellent at causing - and solving - chaotic happenings.

5ft9. I used to think he was far taller; perhaps it’s his deep, dark voice…..😏

Kellan Lutz looks more like a 6'2-6'3 guy

Weird angle on the Oscar stage I thought Snipes and Harrelson looked similar height backstage.
Canson said on 30/Mar/22
He was never as tall as Harrelson
Editor Rob
He did hold his own at Oscars with Woody, certainly I'd have thought both same height (accounting for posture) now.
Canson said on 9/Jan/22
@Rising: did he get an upgrade? I could’ve sworn he was listed 5’8.5 or 5’8.75” before.
Editor Rob
Been stuck on 5ft 9 for a good while now.

In the U.S Marshals movie, a mugshot of his character appears and we can see that he's 172cm tall.
Rising174cm said on 13/Dec/21
That does not surprise me. Murphy is a solid 5'9" or as listed, imo, while Snipes is/was, at best, a weak 5'9". This can be seen with a solid 5'10" Tom Sizemore in Passenger 57 and with 5'9" range Woody Harrelson. The average guess would be closer.
Jtm said on 22/May/21
I don’t know about the footwear but he was at least inch shorter than Eddie Murphy in that recent movie they did together
Sean Day said on 10/Mar/21
Well clearly Sly must be 5'9" here, no less, would make Statham too short.
TheDon91 said on 3/Jan/21
5'8.5" tops
Rising174cm said on 24/Dec/20
About the same as Sly in 2014 so 174 to 174.5 cm range, which adds up with him edging a 174 cm Statham. Banderas was 172 cm by 2014 without his heels and 173 peak if he was lucky. Actually, Snipes in Converse was barely half an inch shorter than Mel Gibson in New Balance side by side on video at this same time, which also supports what I've said about Gibson being 5'9" flat peak and shorter than that today.

🎂🎈🎁🍻 Happy Birthday Wesley 🍻🎁🎈🎂

Many Happy Returns to Wesley Snipes, who turns 58 years old today!

5ft9 😁👍🎊🥞😋

Dmeyer said on 26/Apr/20
to me by ex3 premiere he looks solid ,174cm while standing loose and wearing converse so 175 is fair even lately
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Feb/20
I must say that I thought Wesley was quite a bit taller! I am watching 'Gallowwalkers' for the first time, and heads are being pulled off, yet all this passes for a 15! Amazing....🙊

Wesley gets 5ft9, judging from the excellent chart uptop.
Mightyman said on 9/Feb/20
having looked at the photos below Wesley has to be taller than Sly. Wesley in in flat shoes and Sly is in his boots. So Wesley could well be 5.7 to 5.8
Nik Ashton said on 28/Jan/20
Sly looks on the tall side in the above pic!
Jkiller said on 25/Jan/20
I always felt like Stallone looked 1-1.5cm taller than Snipes. Therefor I'd put him at 174-174.5cm max.
Dmeyer said on 12/Sep/19
he held his own with 174 Stallone and 174,5 Statham while in converse so at worst today 174-174,3cm peak 0,5cm more
c-mo said on 4/Mar/19

I have a friend who is as tall as Kellan Lutz ...even slightly taller maybe .he measured himself with my stadiometer . I have the blue stadiometer you have :D . we measured him lately right at 184cm ...subract 2mm and he is 183.8cm and it was later in the day . we also measured him as 183.5cm once though with shorter hair . but yeah he is around 184cm

I am 176cm in the evening and I look a lot taller next to my friend than Wesley Snipes does next to Kellan

of course kellan has thicker shoes on and wesley being 175 instead of 176 might make some difference too on top of it but yeah I am definitely taller next to my 184cm than wesley is next to kellan

I would rather argue 174 for him and thats only because of the thin sneakers he is wearing on the photo . otherwise even 173 wouldnt be out of the question for me
Editor Rob
Snipes at 174cm is possible, at least he can look that range at times. Has he lost height in 50's? I'm not sure about that, but he could look a more legit 5ft 9 20 years ago.
Canson said on 31/Jan/19
@Rising: you make good points as always!
Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Jan/19
@Canson: I can't go as low as 5'8.25" myself. 5'8.5" would be the lowest and that's what I had him for a while, but check out this video: Click Here Watch through to about 4:10. Snipes looks maybe 2 cm shorter than 5'9" Mel Gibson, but you can see Gibson wore 1.25" New Balance while Snipes wore 0.6" Converse: Click Here So barefoot, Snipes should be barely shorter than Gibson. Say 0.5-0.6 cm or 1/4". I also see barely 2" between Harrison Ford and Snipes in that video, if that and Ford's shoes aren't as thick as Gibson's New Balance, but they were thicker than Converse. Ford's posture makes him tricky, but still, I doubt he'd be much less than 5'10.5" in 2014. There's really strong evidence to put Snipes more like 5'8.75", imo, especially comparing him to other 5'8"-5'9" range guys. 5'9" would be the most I'd guess, but more of a weaker 5'9" guy in reality, especially if Woody is only 5'9"-5'9.25" range himself.
Kalle Maatta said on 25/Dec/18
Big men using lifts because they are insecure about their heights. I'm 5'7" but sure I'd like to be 5'10". I'm now 17 and 5'10" is my expected height. I'm a bit late bloomer, I don't have any mustache hair and I'm still growing.
Canson said on 9/Dec/18
@Rising: I can say that a lower 5’8” may be too low for him but 5’8.25 isn’t impossible imho. 5’8.5 looks ok though
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Dec/18
@Canson: I wouldn't go below 5'8.5" myself and I think the average guess is about right. He was shorter than Woody, but CDS mentioned Woody actually claimed 5'10.5" on Letterman so maybe that's a shoe height and he really is 5'9.5" like Rob lists him? I've never actually seen a claim from him myself. He did have 5'9" on his driver's license in his early 20's, but that could have been an outdated height he grew past. His official listing has seemed to be 5'10" for decades. Obviously, he must be in the 5'9"-5'9.5" range so where exactly might determine if Snipes is just 5'8.5" or closer to Rob's listing.
TheBat said on 27/Nov/18

Wesley did look 6'0" in Blade, mainly because he had 3 inch boots. When I was a lot younger, I thought he was 5'11" to 6'0" but I would later realize that the boots he wore made him a lot taller.
Bobby said on 25/Nov/18
I'm surprised he is this small, he gives off the impression of being 6'0 in Blade. He has good proportions.
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Rising: I agree that it’s about an inch between them. Probably nothing more. Perhaps it’s even 2cm at times. This pic may not be the best though. Woody’s height is weird because he claims 5’9”. I grossly underestimated Snipes before. I had 5’7.5-5’8 but I’d say 5’8 and change like you have him. Woody at 5’9.5 is possible although 5’9.25 is also possible and there may only be say a 2cm difference between he and Snipes. I’d say the following ranges are possible for both guys. Both could very well be at the top of the range as opposed to Lower end or middle

Woody 5’9-5’9.5
Wesley 5’8-5’8.5

Solid 5'9". Definitely edges out 5'8.75" Jason Statham in that photo.
Boob said on 21/Jun/18
I'm only about 5'11". Lol that's so weird coming from a 5'9" guy. 5'11" is the start of being tall in my opinion. The fact he said only confirms he's a shorter guy trying to be modest by saying only yet lying about his height.
M.E said on 7/Jun/18
similar height to michael jackson
Nino said on 15/Mar/18
Some ppl really think Sly is 177cm tall. Lol
In his lifts sure.

Wesley seems 175 - 177 since almost all of them wear lifts or thick boots but Wesley converse 0.6 type of shoes.

I think he wore lifts in blade.
Wil said on 13/Mar/18
In blade he was 6 feet tall maybe he used lifts in hes shoes. Compare him to ryan reynolds who is 6'2"its about 2 inch diferente betwen them
Bobby said on 11/Feb/18
6'2 in the comics and only 5'9 in the movies? That's weird, he looked a big guy while portraying Blade. At least when I was a kid.
berta said on 9/Jan/18
claims 2 inches taller than he is. thats alot. i think the listing is fine
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Sep/17
@Anonymous: I didn't say Harrelson was over an inch taller. I said if Woody is only 5'9.25"-5'9.5" as most people think he is, then Snipes at a full 5'9" seems a stretch to me and 5'8.5"-5'8.75" seems more accurate, imo. So based on that, I implied Harrelson may be anywhere from a half inch to an inch taller.
Anonymous said on 12/Sep/17
Woody Harrelson is not over an inch taller then Snipes you need to watch white men cant jump again. Snipes is right around this mark half inches are hard to judge if he can be 5'8.5 he might be 5'9.
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Sep/17
Nah, Stallone was 175 cm max, much like Snipes and both 174-175 range. Both could have only possibly hit 177 in the morning.

Looked no more than 5'8.5" with strong 5'10" Tom Sizemore in Passenger 57: Click Here
Richardspain said on 28/Aug/17
Somewhere between 175-177 cm in peak

Could be a solid 176cm in peak

Stallone was nearly 177cm in his peak too ( 5'10)

Rising - 174 cm said on 26/Aug/17
I had thought he was 5'8.5", but watch here with Mel Gibson: Click Here

I start the video at 3:44 so watch through about 4:10. They look very close in height, no? But keep in mind, Snipes has 0.6" Converse while Gibson has 1.25" New Balance. So the footwear difference is as big as I see the height difference. I'd have to say 5'8.75" or a weak 5'9" in other words for Snipes, but I don't think he was ever taller than that.
Rising - 174 cm said on 18/Jul/17
I agree, Cameron. He can look over 5'9" at times, likely due to footwear, but look at him at The Expendables 3 premiere in London for instance and he looks like the shortest of them, except for maybe Banderas, until Snipes goes up on his toes. I think he's likely identical to Statham and at best, as tall as Sly was in 2914, so 5'8.5"-5'8.75" range. If Woody Harrelson is only a 5'9.25"-5'9.5" and Tom Sizemore was only 5'10"-5'10.5" peak then I don't think the full 5'9" is the most likely guess for Snipes, even in the 90s. I think he was pretty similar to De Niro in The Fan as well. There is a pretty decent chance Snipes was 5'8.75" peak and dropped a fraction to 5'8.5" in his early 50s. I don't think there was near 2 inches between Snipes and 5'7"-5'7.25" Stephen Dorff either.
Canson said on 18/Jul/17
@Phil: maybe less now since he's in his 50s
Phil said on 17/Jul/17
Rob, is 5 foot 8 and a half possible for Snipes? i really think so.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't rule it out, or the chance he has dropped a fraction under 5ft 9 today.
Cameron said on 10/Jul/17
Can look 176 at times, but I think in reality he's a shade below 5'9"
Canson said on 29/Jun/17
@Rising Force: I agree on Danson definitely a strong 6'2 to weak 6'3" guy
RisingForce said on 28/Jun/17
Canson, I can see Snipes at 5'8.5", but really no lower in general. Woody was taller in White Men Can't Jump, iirc, but he's one guy I think might be taller than people think. He never really struck me as a 5'9" flat guy on screen going back to Cheers considering I believe Danson was about 6'2.5". I'm sure he can look it, but he has a terrible slouch. There are some full photos of Woody looking the same height as Owen Wilson side by side and Woody has 1.5 cm, 2 cm max type sneakers. I see Snipes similar to a guy like Statham and taller than Banderas.
5'11.25 at noon. said on 28/Jun/17
5'9 max no more
Canson said on 24/Jun/17
@Rising force: maybe underestimated him. He may be 5'8" but can't see much more. Woody edged him by a bit
Xavier said on 21/Jun/17
Snipes is 5'8, in the movie blade trinity, they showed that height when the FBI was looking for him
german said on 18/Jun/17
he looks like stephen dorf but 1cm taller i think
RisingForce said on 7/May/17
Hmm, I think Snipes can look closer to an inch rather than 2 inches taller than Stephen Dorff, who is 5'7", maybe 171 cm: Click Here Click Here Click Here Maybe Snipes actually is only 5'8.5".
RisingForce said on 26/Mar/17
Canson, I don't see him that short, though I admit he can look no more than 172-173 cm in that one pic, but he doesn't seem shorter than Jamie Foxx who most agree is a legit 5'9": Click Here Didn't look shorter than Van Damme, who was at least 5'8.5" peak, more like a weak 5'9", imo and Van Damme often wore cowboy boots back then: Click Here Didn't look that much shorter than Ving Rhames who is likely 179-180 cm range: Click Here
Canson said on 26/Mar/17
@Rising Force: I've never met him but don't see him over 5'7.5/5'8
RisingForce said on 25/Mar/17
And what exactly are you objecting to so strenuously? I saw at least 4" between Lutz and the others in Danimal's first pic too (but less in the others). Like I said, factoring in Lutz gaining near 1 cm going up on one foot, I thought Sly looked near 5'8.5" first pic, Statham about a quarter inch less (but probably the same with equal posture) and Snipes and Banderas in the 172-173 cm or weak 5'8" range in that pic. I think that's about how tall all actually were in 2014, except I'd at least give Snipes the 5'8.5" I gave Sly and Statham though he doesn't look it there and Sly could have dropped a quarter or half inch in the 2.5 years since that photo. If Lutz looked that tall and wasn't gaining advantage up on one foot, I'd have sais none of them looked any taller than 5'8" flat there.
RisingForce said on 25/Mar/17
GP, that comment makes no sense. We have to guess other heights so we have something to compare them to. Your posts are not any more factual than mine. Neither of us can prove any of this. First of all, nobody has ever posted Woody claiming any height. All we have is a driver's license that may have an outdated height for all we know. Rob guessed Lutz 184 cm in person so that's what I gave him, but Lutz is ON HIS TOES ON ONE FOOT in that photo, which Rob said can give you an extra half inch so I said that EFFECTIVELY makes him a 6'0.75" from the extra height, I NEVER said that was his actual barefoot flatfoot height. You should at least read my posts more carefully if you're going to try critiquing them. I assumed Lutz was the height Rob lists him at, but specifically mentioned Lutz up on one foot. None of those guys is 5'7". You could argue Banderas as the shortest is about 172 cm without his heels, but much lower and you'll have to make everyone shorter to fit.
GP said on 24/Mar/17
Risingforce please stop guessing heights based on assumptions. You assume that Banderas, Stallone or Statham are certain height but ignore actual facts like Rob had photo with Lutz and the guy is 6" who was at least 4" taller in all those Expendable photos. Then we got Woody claiming 5'9" and I know Rob wants to list him above that but he didn't look anything over 5'9" in EDtv. Woody is over an inch taller than Snipes and he was almost 2" taller than Banderas who even had thicker shoes. I have met Snipes on that day he was wearing the converse and I can assure you that he is not over 5'8". Banderas has been wearing Cuban heels for a long time and it appears he uses lifts also. All these action stars are between 5'7"-5'8".
RisingForce said on 22/Mar/17
But while Snipes can look only 172 cm in that first pic with Sly the tallest older Expendable there looking only 174 cm, the other pics don't convince me of Snipes at 5'8" since Banderas has heels in both and Snipes has Converse, but he's closet to the camera making him tough to judge. But Sly may have had lifts in the 3rd pic since he's looking 178-179 cm with Statham even looking 176-177 cm there and Sly with at least a boot advantage in the 2nd since he looks about 176 cm there.
RisingForce said on 21/Mar/17
I do have to say that in Danimal's first pic, Snipes actually struggles with 5'8" and doesn't even look taller than Banderas who doesn't appear to have his heels. Sly is the only one who can even look as tall as 5'8.5" there (outside of Kellan Lutz who should appear about 6'0.75" up on one foot) with Statham the 2nd tallest of those 4 Expendables perhaps 1/4" below Sly in that pic. Maybe it's Snipes posture? I'll still go 5'8.75" for Snipes, but I can see some of the shorter claims.
Stan Smith said on 24/Feb/17
I met him in Atlanta once and stood eye to eye with the man. I'm 5f 8" in my trainers. He's a solid dude but tall he is not.
RisingForce said on 11/Feb/17
I've seen some where he looked at least as tall or even taller than Sly and in one you posted, he looks to be wearing converse, which is less than Sly's dress shoes. I think a slight downgrade for Statham and especially Banderas would be more obvious. He could be anywhere from 5'8.5"-5'9", imo, but yeah, the movie obviously doesn't mean anything since we know Snipes himself claimed 5'10" and 5'11" so there's know reason to think the 5'8" figure came from him, but he was indeed shorter than Woody Harrelson.
anonnnn said on 19/Jan/17
He's 5'8.5. Over an inch shorter than 5'10 tom sizemore in PASSENGER 57. 1 inch shorter than 5'9ish woody harrelson
A 171cm male said on 9/Jan/17
Looks 5'10" maybe because of his footwear in his films. ..
Shredder said on 5/Jan/17
Rob you are correct , weak 5'9 . I was pointing out to Danimal that Movie heights are rubbish. Woody is taller btw.
Canson said on 4/Jan/17
Woody is listed at 5'10. So if he is Wesley is 5'8 range
Canson said on 4/Jan/17
I'd go 5'8" tops. Yea he's def shorter than woody. He could be 5'7.75 woody 5'9.25
Shredder said on 4/Jan/17
Don't go by Movie heights. We would have a 5'9 Martin Lawrence. Also in U.S. Marshalls he was given 6 '0 , the craziest of all is why would they give him 5'8 if Blade is 6'2 in the Comic books?
Editor Rob
Shredder, I do think Snipes can look about 5ft 8.5, he may well have lost a fraction, or you could argue he was always a weak 5ft 9 guy.
Danimal said on 3/Jan/17
How do you have him at 5'9" when he's clearly shorter than Sly in all recent photos of them?

He's 5'8"! Watch Blade 3. He shows his ID and it says 5'8". He was also noticeably shorter than Woody Harrelson in White Men Can't Jump and Woody's 5'9".
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Dec/16
That comes as quite a shock to me! I thought he was at least 5ft10, at LEAST!
I think that might be because of the heroic part he plays in the 'Blade' films. I have only seen the first two though, and I do not own them so I am unable to pause any scenes which might be helpful!
Shredder said on 18/Dec/16
He looked taller than Reedus in Blade 2. He pulled off 5'10 in it

josh jeffords said on 5/Nov/16
Hes short shorter than stallone whos outlandish claim is the same he towered wesley.
Probably about 5 7 bare foot he is also shorter than barefoot dorf who is listed 5 8 and looks short.
Could even be less watch the huge thick tactical stlye boots he wears easy 1.5 in sole.
Not to mention an old kristopherson made him look like a grade schooler.
Even Tom Seizmore towered over him all the while during his prime.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Aug/16
Ron, how likely is 176cm?
Editor Rob
it's arguable, but roughly 5ft 9 I think is fair for him.

He looked a bit shorter than Woody Harrelson in White men cant jump, tho woody can look like a 5'10 guy, I think 5'9 seems fair for Snipes

When hes in blade his around 173-174 cm he must weight around 165 to 170

Yeah, Rob, that was my thought too. Maybe he thought that was a chance to claim a little more than usual. The 6'1" figure sounds like one from that 4 letter site!

Hey Rob, you can add the 5'11" claim at about 14:45 in this video. Click Here I can see the 2 inch rule in Hollywood is alive and well ;)

ok thanks, maybe he was caught off guard with Stern mentioning six one!
anonymous said on 11/Nov/15
by the way Rob is it possible to grow up 5 inches for just 1 year especially after 17 years like he said ?
Editor Rob
it is rare, but there will be guys who have that late big spurt at 17-19.

Snipes was a late bloomer growing his full height as a older teen. It happens quite a bit. Also how the hell is ALLEN PAYNE listed as 6'1" when he's the exact same height as snipes in New Jack City. Someone explain please.

He looks same height as 5'9 Michael Jackson and Jason Statham....but to each his own opinion not facts.

He is shorter than Reedus and all of the New Jack City guys , 5'9 or less .

Many years ago, I actually met Wesley Snipes. I used to workout at a gym in California that was owned by a guy who did stunts for Hollywood. And one day, Wesley visited the studio. Wesley was a really nice guy. Very funny. I think the height listed is spot on. I stand just right around 5'9.75" and Wesley looked like a little less than an inch shorter than me.

Rob looking at him again counting footwear and béside sly statham lutz he can look légit 175cm évén 176cm is not an impossibility
GP said on 9/Apr/14
Met him few years ago, just saw him again, he was wearing converse and the most I would say is 5'8". I wouldn't be surprised if he was below that. Makes sense now that he was that much shorter than Harrelson. I guess Rob is being very nice and generous.
MD said on 23/Dec/13
He's not even 5'9", let alone his 5'10" claim. I'd put him at about 5'8". It's clear when he's around others that he's below average height. This first thing I would remark about him wouldn't be his height, but he's definitely not a taller guy.
johnmcc said on 21/Dec/13
Was shorter than Woody Harrelson in Money train who is down here as 5'9 1/2 which puts him about 5'8 .
JD said on 20/Dec/13
He looks about 5'6'' or 5'7"
Len said on 4/Oct/13
I'd believe 5'8".
rayman said on 20/Aug/13
In Rising Son he looks to be two inches taller than Harvey Kaitel would put him at 5 8 to 5 9...
Jax said on 9/May/13
5'8 area in barefeet....he wears thick boots or has lift pads inside regluar looking shoes to create the illusion of 5'9 or 5'10, like most actors do. a common hollywood practice these days
Dman1528 said on 23/Mar/13
He's around 5foot7.5 to 5foot8
Joey said on 3/Feb/13
anything between 172cm and 174cm is possible...but I highly doubt he is even 1mm over 174cm in barefeet....always looks short and even in thick boots ( Blade movies) only about average height....

Pause at 58:37. Looks near 4 inches shorter than David Caruso. 5 ft 10 is impossible and I thinks its inaccurate that Caruso is actually only 2.5 inches taller.

look at pics of him and jada pinkett (before she was smith)she's 5'1 and in heels she's almost as tall as him.

I think 5ft9.5(177cm) is possible. Looked 5ft10-5ft11 range in Blade
stan said on 27/Jul/12
Met woody harrelson years ago..he was say 5.7 - 5.8 tops.if u see the movies these 2 do together u will see woody is a tad taller than snipes so safe to say snipes probably 5.7 tops
Silent d said on 19/Jan/12
Stallone is 5 foot 8. He looks muscular and built. I am surprised people say he is skinny. I thought there's a gym in jail. I watched us marshals and it said he was 172cm. I believed it but he was taller than robert downey jr and shorter than Tommy lee jones. I don't think he is shorter than 5 foot 7. He has the same build as robert downey jr. If robert is 5 foot 8 than wesley is 5 foot 8.
dazz11 said on 8/Jan/12
i think he is 5'9-5'10,n yup that suites him well
daggx said on 3/Jan/12
met him on movie presentation of blade trinity, i am 6'2 and i looked like a tower when stand next to him, who said 5'10 not even kidding, this guy can look very tall on blade because of camera angles and big lifts, i say honestly, he looked no more than 5'7, i was looking at dorff is listed 5'7, remember blade's finale whe they fight, snipes looked slightly taller and he was wearing big lift boots, while dorff was wearing flat shoes, so again, if dorff is listed 5'7, wesley should be downgrade to the same at peak, seriously i am a big fan of blade, but this guy is nowhere even NEAR 5'9, cool actor, but he is pretty short
Kaustav said on 2/Jan/12
Wesley is between 5'8"-5'9". Not more than that because he looks 2"-3" inches shorter than Stallone in DEMOLITION MAN. Stallone is 5'11"
dennis said on 1/Dec/11
man i heard he was 5ft 5in.....he just weres platform shoes in his movies
Danimal said on 25/Sep/11
In Blade Triniti they show his height on a card. It says 5'8", which makes sense, seeing he was shorter than 5'9" Woody Harrelson in White Men Can't Jump. I'd say he's MAX 5'8". Rob, you have him at least an inch too high.
Grey Ghost said on 19/Aug/11
He was the same height as 5'10'' Ving Rhames in Undisputed.

he is 5'8. i have seen him with jason statham. both were of the same height. they're both 5'8 but claims to be 5'10 or some thing
Julia said on 29/Jun/11
I've stood next to him on a couple of occasions. He's roughly 5'6". When you first see him in person, it's surprising how tiny he is (short, small boned, skinny.)
HeightGainer said on 26/Jun/11
OMG! I thought all along that he's really tall.. In his movies he looks like a 6 footer like in Passenger 57.. I was really shocked by this.. Your body frame plays a really big role for you.. Even if you're Short,you can look taller.. Like Snipes he really looks tall.. I'm a height enthusiast and always envy taller guys.. I only stand 5'5.. I'm so frustrated about it how i wish im at least 5'7.. Anyway,thanks for this info
paul86 said on 8/Jun/11
most likely he's a weak 5'10' like myself; being 5'10' in the morning and 5'9.5' in the evening.
tez said on 20/May/11
He is not 5.10. I have met him a couple of times in Orlando and he is 5"7 if not a little shorter. I am 5"11 and always thought he was bigger. It was a shock to me when I realized he was much shorter that I pictured in the movies.

he should be 5.10 coz he was taller than sly on domolition man

Idk I thought he was taller he looks taller in movies he is thin but he's got tone hes not a big guy but in blade I thought he was 5 ft 11 but i saw the other night BLade Trinty and on his wanted poster you can make out he's actually a little shorter than 5 ft 11 about 5 ft 8 or 9 I think is accurate
sirmixedalot said on 27/Jan/11
Wesley Snipes 5"9. I am a Close Protection professional. I had the pleasure of working with Snipes in 1996 (the movie was released in 1997)while filming Murder at 1600. I promise all of you, he is closer to 5"6 than 5"7. He is tiny. Unless he has reached the age of puberty after 1996 and had that "growth spurt", there is no way he is 5"9. Not even close. He is also deadly skinny. A really wee guy. And he loves Asian women.
sneed said on 18/Dec/10
met wesley snipes some years ago in a vancouver nightclub and me and my bro were shocked at how much shorter then us he was---and we have met several celebrities between the two of us. we are 5'8 and 5'9, he was somewhere between 5'6 - 5'8 max

I was shocked when I read BigKing's comment. So being 5'9"(exactly average height) is embarrassing? And how is 5'9" a short Big King? I HATE when people call 5'9" short, even 5'8" isn't really short much less 5'9". Big King is literally out of his mind. He thinks that at 6'6" he's too short! Yeah maybe too short for an NBA power forward but otherwise 6'6" is tall enough to do anything.

not to be to picky, there's nothing wrong with being tall, but Big King is too tall to be an effective NFL running back, probably too tall for a hockey forward (good height for a defenseman though) and would be hard pressed to pack on the necessary muscle mass for an O or D lineman in the NFL. His chance of becoming a movie extra would be limited especially in a Cruise, Gibson or Snipes film and the only comfortable way for him to fly is first class. Don't get me wrong, there are lots of things tall guys are better suited for (volleyball!) but don't forget the advantages of having a smaller frame. Hey, let the shorter guys set the taller guys up for a volleyball spike. Can't we all just get along? lol. Cheers.

In undisputed they said he was 5'11 and 195lbs. Don't know if that is true in real life or if that was just what was in the script.

1 inch error is totally acceptable. Men's height can vary as much as an inch between morning and night. Some of those action stars are indeed shorter than average ppl. There's nothing to be embarassed'bt it. They used to film a lot of movies in my school. What I can say is that ppl are not as tall as they appear on the big screen.

did you see him in new jack city with alan payne he looked the same height as him or maybe even taller and alan payne is actually listed 6'1 all over the sites no way he is that tall he is more like 5'10
RisingForce said on 20/Apr/09
He does look shorter there, about 2 inches shorter or close to it as you said. I started watching it on AMC a little later though. I turned it on during the flashback scene when Cutter's wife is killed. So I apologize for my mistake there. But from about 8:43 on they look a lot closer in height. From about 9:12 on they look about the same, Tom might be a hair taller there.

Look at them from 16:33. There they look the same height. The full body shot is about from 16:41 on.

I'll agree that Wesley is more likely under 5-10 and used bigger lifts for the scenes I pointed out to look even with Sizemore. Sizemore's slouch could help as well.
TELLEM said on 18/Apr/09
no he didn't. he looked shorter than sizemore. by 2 inches or close to it. heres the link: start watching @ 8:10 seconds: Click Here

wesley is 5'9.
RisingForce said on 9/Apr/09
Snipes actually looked every bit as tall as 5'11" Tom Sizemore in Passenger 57, even in full body shots! He's certainly not less than 5'9" and I'm wondering about 5'10" at this point.

Check out the image of him opposite Stallone in Demolition Man, Stallone has 3 inches on him easily.

I'm exactly 5ft 9in and I've noticed shorter guys (5ft 5in or less) often describe me as tall or as a 'six footer'. It's like they perceive anyone strong five nine and upwards as six feet.

Watch Blade Trinity. At 20 minutes into the movie, the police pull up Blade's
sheet on their computer and the height listed is 5'8". I don't think an actor
would allow himself to be listed, even fictiously, as 5'8" if he were 6' tall
Neon Genesis said on 16/Dec/08
5' 9" (175 cm) sounds correct for Snipes. He looks taller in "Blade" because he wears boots that give him 2 inches more
Jay said on 5/Dec/08
He's definitely taller than 5'9". He's actually close to 6-foot.

leonari said on 10/Nov/08
Big King: you are one of those " discriminators " I was talking about!!! Embarrassing? You my friend are the only thing that is embarrassing with your post that bring absolutely nothing to the table. Down with the enforcer22: sad that your self esteem is so low that you have to drag others down. You could say that it's embarrassing that Wesley is in jail (has nothing to do with height-) cause he believed he is the only guy who makes millions and who doesn't have to pay his taxes. Rob: You see what I am talking about?? Wesley was great as Blade! Yet this big king needs to bring him down for no reason...

And the actor behind the tough Blade guy was a shorty??? How embarrassing. He could have been compared with Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger who couldn't even reach 6'3". That's just the same case with Snipes.
I presume y ou'r ebeing sarcastic? Why is it embarrassing? Or are you one of these tall guys who think they're someone special cos their tall and gets jealous when he sees shorter people doing well, cos you think "I'm taller than him, people should think I'm great not them." You've got a complex, a worthless complex.

Leon said on 7/Jun/08
Anon 2008 makes an excellent point. On the police information sheet shown in Blade Trinity, why state Blade's height as 5'8" if the comic character is over six foot? According to the bonus DVDs, Wesley has quite a lot of input in production, and I'm sure he would've said, "Use my real height, five-nine." Not: "Yeah, Blade is a six-footer, but I think we should make him an inch shorter than me." Makes no sense. I reckon Wesley is just over 5'8". He looks 5'8" in White Men Can't Jump.
glenn said on 7/Jun/08
stallone is 5-10.75.snipes ive seen look from 5-9 to 6ft.he can be almost as enigmatic as sly in height who can look 5-8 to 6-2 depending.
Hooch said on 6/Jun/08
In the movie "Demolition Man" he looked a bit taller than 5'9 tall Sly and in the movie "Blade: Trinity" his height is shown 5'8 in his criminal record so I'd stick with 5'9 for Wesley.

6'0" is not crazy glenn cos in 7 seconds my mate pete lee wilson plays alexei the crazy gangster who is 5-11 says he is similar to him, he also was much taller than 5'8" tamzin outhwaite in that film, and was billed on the database at 5-9 - so were the other excons on the database.

May that mean that i will have a late growth to??? ... because I'm 17.5 years old and only 5ft 7.75 when i go to sleep and 5ft 8.5 when i wake up ... though and i'm half an inch taller than my father ... please give me an answer ..

i've met snipes and shook his hands in the bellagio in vegas about 10 yrs ago. I went up to him because I was with my girlfriend and her cousin from australia, and i asked him to take a picture. he said no to me, but i am 5'9 exactly, and he was clearly 5'10.
thetrue said on 14/Sep/07
5'10,glenn is TOO close 2the camera
Gin said on 17/Aug/07
Rightfully i think Snipes is 5'9 and could be more. I used to think that he was at leat 5'11 before, seeing him at Blade. But if ever he is exactly 5'9 minus footwear, i'd have to say that he carries himself well since he makes the illusion of a 5'11 to 6'0 guy. Well i guess 5'9-5'11 peeps may look the same w/ this type of build.

I've seen many movies with Wesley and compared to many other actors like Tommy Lee Jones in "U.S. Marshals" or Ving Rhamesis in "Champion" he is quite tall and I think he actually is 5'10" as he claims (by the way great actor, nice fight style).

Denzel is 6'1, which would put Snipes at 5'88. He thinks 5'8.5-5'9. Nothing below, though. Snipes at 5'5 is like Stallone at 5'7.
Anonymous said on 10/Aug/07
If anyone think he is under 5'9 is delusional and a idiot. Look at the pic with Glenn. The top is cut off but he was a good 2 inches at most over him. Don't give the excuse of lifts either. If he was 5'5 and wearing lifts he would be shorter than Glenn. At best posture he is probably 5'10 flat. Who cares about the movies.

I agree that he's 5'9". I was surprised since I thought he was supposed to be around 6'. I saw him at a restaurant called Versailles a few years ago. He stood next to me and I'm about 5'8". I thought that he was Spike Lee because he was wearing those thick framed glasses until my friends told me. I think he overheard me mentioning about how small he was since he looked like he weighed about 160 lbs, was in good shape though.

In U.S Marshalls, there's a scene where he is holding Robert Downey Jr in front of him, and he looks about the same height, so 5'9 sounds right. I always thought Snipes was taller, at least 6ft.
Rk said on 16/Sep/06
Actuly 5'9 is pretty accurate. I was in New York last month and got to meet snipes in a elevator. Im 15 years old and exactly 5'8 and when i seen him in the elevator he was litterly an inch taller than me. To me it was kinda weird because i always expectied him to be taller, when i saw him in blade i thought he was a solid 6ft but i found out thats not true.

He knew by the time he was 14 that he wanted to be a performer. It just took the world a while to realize it. And after he turned 17, he finally grew five inches in a year and a half"

Then you have from same year another article, interviewer estimating him: "Snipes, 35, is surprisingly small, maybe 5-foot-6"

Looks about 5'8". I remember him wearing some clunky shoes in Blade Trinity (Jessica Biel is a about 5'7", so he probably wore them to appear taller).

in blade 3 when snipes is arrested it says 5.8 and 175lbs. i cant see any benefit in making him smaller and lighter then he actualy is?
dmeyer said on 19/Jul/06
he is in the 175 6 range
Glenn said on 18/Jul/06
Its changes constantly.
Darren said on 17/Jul/06
he was with Michael Jackson in his BAD music video which was directed by Martin Scorsese, he seemed to be at least 5 10 in there, but that was almost 20 years a go, maybe he lost a bit of his height.
OT: What's with that shirt there Glenn? ;)

glenn is too much closer to the camera in this photo.I think wesley can be a solid 5"10"
Gonzalo said on 1/Jun/06
Snipes was much shorter than Sean Connery in Rising sun, like four inches. He must be around 5´9
Max said on 31/May/06
I remember watching conan o'brien having wesley snipes as special guest.
He made a comment about the fact that in his movies wesley looks lots taller (it was fun sesing him near conan). Wesley replied "Yes, it always happen, when people meet me they are kind of shy, then when I stand up they all say that I look taller and bigger in my movies"...not the exact words, but I remember clearly having watched that. I thought he could not be more than 5.7 - 5.8 at most.....unless you tell me that conan o'brien is 7.4 :oP

After watching a few of his movies recently (White Men Can't Jump and Major League), I think he's probably 5'9, possibly pushing towards 5'9.5".
Glenn said on 4/May/06
He looked 5-9.5 in combat boots.
Quad-4 said on 3/May/06
Yeah, I believe Woody is 5'9 in real life and snipes is at least an inch shorter than him. I mean it only said 5'9 on Woody's 'own' drivers license. I think snipes is closer to 5'8, but 5'7.5-5'7.75 for max accuracy. I think he's Glenn's height, basically. And because on the blade movie it said 5'8 it makes my guess all the more reasonable. 5'9 seems a bit to high for him. GLENN did you get a look at his shoes that night you took the shot? How tall did he look to you?
Frank2 said on 28/Apr/06
If anything, Snipes looked average in Major League. I just watched it. He's as tall as 5'9" Charlie Sheen and only a couple of inches shorter than 5'11" Tom Berenger and 5'11" Corbin Bernson. And Snipes is not wearing lifts in his baseball shoes either.

Rob, Ive changed my mind on him. He looks average height in some of his movies, but in anothers he does look a lot smaller,like White Me and Major league. In Major league he looks a lot smaller. One of the comments below said he looked like Ichiro Suzuki in size, but hes actually a legit 5-9 as well. He Looked smaller in that movie compared to Ichiro's size anyway. If I had to bet Id say he was 5-9, but I wouldnt be to shocked If he was smaller though.

Editor Rob
I change my mind on folk all the time aswell ;-0

I've got a big list of 'hmmmmms' out there: mcgregor/mckidd/rock/clarkeduncan/chan etc...guys who maybe are getting 1cm benefit of doubt...hmmmmm
Glenn said on 27/Apr/06
However to further the mystery,my same friend that saw him at 6ft,saw him at 5-6! but I always thought he was exaggerating and saw 5-8.must talk to him.I saw Snipes last summer and studied him.5-9.however,he had huge black combat type boots up to his knee practically.makes me wonder if he's shorter.
sf said on 27/Apr/06
Wow - I know nothing about Snipes but can't believe the height ranges on this guy! 5'5" to 6 ft! Now those are some lifts...
lew said on 27/Apr/06
5'9-5"10 seems pretty accurate cmon guyz 5-6 sounds crazy
Viper652 said on 27/Apr/06
I can buy the 5-9 for Snipes. The 5-5 and 5-6 claims sound pretty nuts to me.

Editor Rob
didn't you say you could see him 5ft 5-6 a few months back ;-)

but those two posts, driving license and autograph are bunk...I deleted them.
Glenn said on 27/Apr/06
Then how do you explain the times I saw him at 5-11,6ft? stilts? he is 5-9 and sometimes wears lifts.
Frank2 said on 26/Apr/06
Then the guy has the best lifts imaginable.
Glenn said on 1/Apr/06
Oh,was a great guy.I heard he had some kind of meltdown.not nice anymore.
Glenn said on 1/Apr/06
Thanks Frank.again the best source besides me.these 5-6 reports are silly.
Frank2 said on 31/Mar/06
I met him at Fox Studios when I worked there. He's 5'9". And a very nice person. Very friendly.
Glenn said on 31/Mar/06
I once saw him look 6ft on a film set in 1993.5-9 everytime after that.even 6 months ago.wish I had his shoes.

People on this site take these stars' heights a little personally, it seems. I'm in the 'Wesley is short' camp for the same reason I'm in the Pacino- Christian Slater-Keifer Sutherland is short camp. I've met them and they've surprised me with their shortness. The Army measures you for height and weight on a regular basis, to measure your body mass index, and to kick your ass if you're trending towards 'fatass' status. So a US Army issue scale put me at precisely 66.5 inches. They have no need to make me feel good about myself, and I've long since become used to my height, so I measure persons I meet relative to my height, and since I'm a decent artist, my eye is pretty good. I actually like Wesley Snipes alot, and have no problem with him acting like an Alpha dude-short people acting like men is alright with me. So when I say he's 5'5", it's because I served him a drink at a function in Downtown LA, and he wasn't quite eye to eye with me, and I was in comfortable shoes. No one here should feel bad for him because he isn't 5'9". He's nice to his wife and can kick your ass all day.
dmeyer said on 19/Jan/06
in chaos he apeared a lithel shorter than statham so 175 cm seems right
starwars23 said on 19/Jan/06
looks 5'10" to me. O and kam the eye level is the same because wesley head is tilted downward
Anonymous said on 13/Jan/06
i´ve always taken him for 178
but he looks 174, 175, 5'9" in that picture
ok 5'9" is acurate for him
Glenn said on 11/Jan/06
I forgot this one time on a film set me and my friend were amazed that he looked 6 feet!
Glenn said on 11/Jan/06
its 1993 cool j.
dmeyer said on 11/Jan/06
in this pic snipes look 174 175 cm range

Editor Rob
yeah, he's a bit further back than Glenn so he might been closer to 5ft 10 when he met him...
Glenn said on 1/Jan/06
Ive read 5-10,5-11.ill send pic of him and I soon from 1993.he appeared 5-10 that day.saw him 6 months ago and he appeared 5-9.
J-Dog said on 21/Dec/05
If anyone watches Blade: Trinity, there is a part soon after Blade kills a human unknowingly then they show his arrest sheet in the movie. The arrest sheet states 5'8" along with other characteristics. I doubt they would round down Snipes' height by an inch, unless Blade's comic book height is suppose to be 5'8".

Editor Rob
this all depends on who is responsible for creating computer screens and if they are given the details or make em up. See Art Malik's page - I mentioned they put 2 different heights on the computer screen, but in reality he's 6ft.

I mean, look at Snipes 7 Seconds. The babe is going through the computer screens and every guy is 5ft 9, then snipes appears and it lists him at 5ft 9 in that movie.
EJ said on 20/Dec/05
My mom (with no prompting) even said he didn't look that much taller than Annabella Sciorra (5'2") when we were watching Jungle Fever. I think 5'8" sounds more plausible.
