Billy at peak was arguably the same range as guys like Reynolds and Affleck
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Dec/19
Affleck is at least 188cm
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Nov/18
Ben Affleck is no way 189cm. William is def about 6'2 and worst 6'1 1/2 now.
MAD SAM said on 18/Jun/18
His height looks equal to that of Ben Affleck about 189 cm, he might be claiming himself at 188 cm but actually he’s got a bit more to it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Mar/18
He definitely still looks around 6ft2 today. I reckon 188-189cm zone in the 90's and nowadays at worst he might measure somewhere between 187-188cm
For the moment, I wouldn't mess with this listing
berta said on 28/Mar/18
this guy and adam driver looks to be the exact same height. both beetween 188-89.
said on 31/Dec/17
He’s 6’3.... No question about it.... Rob says that a good chunk of men in their 50’s have lost around 1cm but there is a good chunk that don’t lose anyrhing untill they get to their 60’s....William hasn’t lost anyrhing, he in great shape....
Editor Rob: William only claims 6ft 2
King of the hill 91 said on 15/Dec/17
189cm peak alec 182 cm peak maybe a 183cm at some point in the day
berta said on 20/Nov/17
fraction over this
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/17
190.7cm out of bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/17
If this guy is 6ft5 then Alec is 6ft2 lol
Canson said on 2/May/17
Lol Goose has this guy at 6'5". That explains why Tim Robbins looked 6'7" and Conan 6'5" Andy richter 6'2"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Mar/17
No way 6ft1...that makes Alec 5ft10 max at peak.
He was a decent 6ft2 guy at the very least. I can believe 6ft3 out of bed
josh jeffords said on 16/Mar/17
Usually looks 6 ft was no bigger than an aging scot glen all of them wore big boots.
He may loose a bit to posture but 6 3 is insane he never looked that even with lil kiefer.
Modine had over an inch on him his own height is debatable, a senior don southerland is still an inch taller.
Bottom line sure he is the tallest and probably best looking of the bros at 6 1 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/17
berta, that might very well be his peak.
berta said on 19/Feb/17
hm this guy dont look like 190 guy to me but very close. i think 188 flat is to low. i think he is a guy that is little under 189. dont know if i should give him 188,5 or 189,2 hm i will give him 189 because i think he could and maybe still is closer to 189 than 188. but not a guy that is over it but rahter little under
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jan/17
True...aswell that's only 2 votes! Definitely could look a strong 6ft2 range
said on 8/Jan/17
Average guess 6ft3 Rob....upgrade?
Editor Rob: to me he doesn't look quite that tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Nov/16
S.J.H said on 18/Oct/16
Tallest of the baldwin.. 6'2 seem right
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/16
Had a good 4-5in on Richard Gere in Internal Affairs and always looks 3in or more taller than Alec. Possibly a strong 6ft2 peak.
Canson said on 14/Jul/16
187-188 today still
said on 7/Jul/16
He still has a few inches on Alec in recent photos. 188cm is fair but maybe was 189cm in his 20's-30's, Rob?
He may not have lost anything. He's in good shape for his age…
Editor Rob: he may have passed for 189cm at times in the 80's
5'6.5 Indiana jones guy
said on 3/Jul/16
Can he lose a cm today?
Editor Rob: you would think getting into 50's that a good chunk of men will creep down 1/4-1/2 range
Aravind said on 16/Apr/16
Jon the bus man also claims his height is the same as that guy.But I say he's 6'1 in April 3 2016.Due to some reports they say he is sometimes 6'3 due to 2 inch shoes,but on Monday April 11,when they were talking,they said he isn't even 6'1,he's at least 6'0 in the morning and 5'11 in the night due to the color of his facial hair.
But Rob are you sure about him and Jon,cause usually he's 6'1 while Jon is 6'0.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Apr/16
Yeah, I know what you mean...terrible sloucher. He's much lankier than Alec and Daniel who are heavy
said on 8/Apr/16
Rob, which of these is most likely?
Editor Rob: not looked at him in a while but generally C is an impression I get...at times I think he doesn't stand that well.
said on 1/Mar/16
Rob, could you argue 6ft2-2½ for Billy in this photo with Ed Begley?
Editor Rob: he can look a decent 6ft 2 there
said on 1/Mar/16
Actually I think he can look a smidge under 6'2" next to Peter Krause, after they co-starred in Parenthood, I don't see more than 0.5-0.75 between them.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/15
He can look nearer 6ft3 at times.
said on 11/Dec/14
Rob, is 189cm possible?
He towers over his brothers
[Editor Rob: he can at times look in 188-9 range]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/14
Well, he ain't 6ft5...
Goose said on 2/Jan/14
I said 6'4 in my previous post - he actually looked 6'5 when I
saw him but seeing the 6'2 here I rounded it down. When I
saw him I 1) felt really short 2) thought 'damn' this guy is tall. Had two hotties with him.
Goose said on 25/Dec/12
I walked by him on Houston street in NYC and he looked at least 6'4 to me.very tall guy.
Guy said on 17/Jan/12
I got to work on Gossip Girl as an extra last night and he was on set. I didn't get any pictures unfortunately but he had on a normal dress shoe and looked like an easy 6'2"
LAN Jiao said on 6/Nov/11
william is 6'1
LAN Jiao said on 22/Oct/11
In dirty sexy money william had advantage posture still look abit on shorter than possible 6'1.5 donald sutherland. He is 6'1.
LAN Jiao said on 29/Sep/11
well rampage are correct that daniel is the right one always listed 6'2. but measure out at 6'1 for celebrity fit club. daniel and william always look about the same height. william was the one listed 6'1 for the past before he "grew" to 6'2. to me both daniel and william looks legit 6'1 and alec is a solid 5'11 while shorter brother stephen maybe 5'9.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/11
Rob are you sure you haven't got this guys height mixed up with Daniel Baldwins?
Usually William Baldwin is listed as 6"1 and Daniel at 6"2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/11
Bang on...3 inches taller than Alec
Shelly said on 12/Mar/11
I have been in the company of Billy several times. I can confirm that he is 6'2"! One of the few tall celebs I've met. Most are on the short side.
Matt said on 4/Jan/11
Stephen Baldwin is 5' 9'' max. The Baldwin brothers are mixed heights, which is totally possible for siblings btw.
Sam said on 24/Apr/09
Eastwood is one-quarter Irish, the other quarters being Dutch, Scottish and English.
Hugh 190cm said on 11/Apr/09
Doug I don't think Eastwood is an Irish American. Two of the Baldwin brothers are tall. Daniel and William Baldwin. Alec Baldwin is definitely not tall. Liam neeson and Pierce Brosnan are 100% Irish, not Irish American. but are diefinitely tall none the less.
Doug said on 6/Apr/09
Funny how it seems most of the taller guys in Hollywood or American TV are Irish American! Liam Neeson, Pierce Brosnan, Clint Eastwood, Conan o brien, the Baldwin Brothers!

in backdraft they wore 4 inch boots...idiot...go get your logic back...
Pequa Girl said on 31/Aug/08
Billy is 6'2". I know him personally. You don't realize how tall he is until you're standing right next to him.
GSP said on 12/Jul/08
He didnt look that tall in backdradt. He didnt look much taller than 5'9 Deniro and Kurt Russel. He only looked like 2-3 inches taller. I know hes a legit 6'2 just trying to understand how he looked so close in height to 5'9 guys in that movie.
Jake Is Back said on 2/Jun/08
Looks 6'2", not more. Look at the positioning of the two (Baldwin in front) and eye levels (Glenn's hair gets lost a little in the dark background) this guy is not as massive as people might/do think. Bigger than most, granted, but this is what 6'2" looks next to 5'8".
Davey said on 2/Jun/08
He looks like a freaking giant.About 6`3.
glenn said on 26/Apr/08
interesting anonymous king.
Anonymous King said on 25/Apr/08
i saw a few picture he taken with 6ft3 donald sutherland , he looks 1/2in taller.. he make sutherland like 186.5 ~ 187cm..
glenn said on 25/Apr/08
he looked 6-4 in my early pics with him.
Hugh said on 24/Apr/08
I'd almost believe 6ft4, but it's probably the camera angle. He might be pushing 6ft3 though. Definately the biggest of the Baldwin brothers.
Anonymous said on 26/Feb/08
He doesn't really look at that big in the pic... 6'2"ish it is. 6'3"+ is absurd.
Anonymous said on 23/Jan/08
funny picture, almost appears photoshopped due to william's oddly large frame...
Emilie said on 21/Jan/08
thats right.. remember dozens of movies were he looked slim and attractive.. not anymore.. now he looks like his brother alec... very sad.. he was so good looking years ago..
HeightMaster said on 18/Jan/08
Wow, he looks at least 6'3" in the pic
Danimal said on 18/Jan/08
How come all the Baldwin's got fat?? This one was in Flatliners and quite thin. Not anymore I can see.
Steevn said on 2/Dec/07
Hahaha strange picture indeed, looks like this guy is a ventriloquist and Glenn is the puppet. Can't be any shorter than 6'2''
Anonymous said on 6/Sep/07
6'3'' to me he looks enormous in this pic.
Danius said on 3/Sep/07
looks 6'3 to me..
Franco said on 31/Jul/07
sometimes Baldwin can look short because he's head is huge and his body very robust but the reality is that he's not below 187cm so 188cm is real accurate. ;)
said on 11/Jul/07
Looks about the same height or just barely shorter than 6'3" Jeff Daniels both in the movie The Squid & the Whale and in this photo:
Franco said on 6/Jul/07
this guy is big compared to glenn lol
looks 190cm or so in the pic so 187cm is the lowest for baldwin.
internet_hey said on 6/Jul/07
William was a lot slimmer a decade ago, he is really starting to look very similar to Alec these days. Anyone remember that crappy movie he did with Cindy Crawford or that Slither movie with Sharon Stone during the early 90's, William was really slim and good looking guy but now he looks a lot heavier.

man he looks hugggeeeeeeeeeeeee in this pic!!!!
Astrid said on 27/May/07
He looks 6'2" here.
bikagyura said on 15/Apr/07
He doesn't just look tall, he looks HUGE in this pic.. Otherwise I can just recall him looking 6' 2" and nothing more
5'11 guy said on 15/Apr/07
This guy looks 6'4 to my eyes.
Glenn said on 14/Nov/06
In a different older pic,he looks 6-4 next to me.
Jenny said on 2/May/06
Because 6ft2 is not tall for you? I wonder how tall we must be to seem tall. 7ft, 8ft?
Elio said on 1/May/06
doesn't just look very tall in that photo with glenn, he looks strangely 'big'. Look at the size of his head.
Editor Rob said on 20/Mar/06
A picture of Billy Baldwin and Glenn.
Viper652 said on 1/Jan/06
I take it he is wearing lifts Glenn??
Glenn said on 1/Jan/06
how about he can look 6-4! Ill show you photo of him and I!
Mr. X said on 2/Jun/05
I honestly think you need to switch the heights for William and Daniel editor Rob. Lots of sites and people seem to say that Daniel is a bit taller than William.
[Editor Rob: lol, all these baldwin guys get me confused ;) William I think still looks a bit over 6ft 1, I give him that. Daniel, well he was measured 6ft 1, so I ain't going to argue with that ;)]
Mr. Nice Guy said on 12/Mar/05
I ran into him walking around a part of town popular with celebrities for shopping and he was exactly same height as me. I looked him eye to eye in my encounter and I'm 6'1" on the dot (185 cm and change), I was in running shoes and he was in loafers. Exactly 6'1", but I've met his brother Daniel as well and he was a bit taller...definately 6'2".
