5ft 8in (173cm) says on 3/Apr/14
I saw him last year in málaga (Spain), and he was about 1cm taller than me, and Im a 5ft 8in (173cm) 18 years old. I think he could be 5ft 9in at the morning and near 5ft 8in at night, typical 174cm 5ft 8.5in man. He is not tall al all here in Spain, but his height is average for a 50/55 year old male in the south of Spain. Now the average of young people (18/20) is 5ft 10in (178cm) in the north and center of Spain and 5ft 9/9.5in (175/176cm)in the south and mediterranean coast.

Absolutely true Realist.A research made between 2006 and 2008 revealed the following results.
Average male height worldwide:168,1 World average height for Young males (20-30 years old):170,6.Young Europeans:177,6 (175,3 for all ages).Young Africans:169,9.Young Asians:168,8.Young Latin Americans:171,4.Young Americans:177,6.Young Spanish are listed at 175,0.However they have Indonesia at 163,0 so a 5'6 won't look a giant,just tallish (around 70 percentile).
I think Banderas would be a strong inch shorter than Sly so more likely a flat 5'8.

172. Just a bit below average.
Realist says on 14/Feb/14
Kartal, you are forgetting Asia, that means the actual average of a mans height cannot be more than 171 plus, people in southern europe are slightly "below average" as we guys say, but in places like Indonesia a 5'6 man is considered a giant in front of 5'3 men, look at Ken Jeong he must be average from where he comes. The average in Europe is probably 5'9.

Tom Hanks looks easily 4 inches taller in Philadelphia.

I think Antonio is about 175cm at the morning and 174cm at night.
Gheist says on 20/Dec/13
I could buy a 176-177cm for him, unless he uses lifts + insoles.
Gregorovich says on 25/Oct/13
I saw him several years ago near Times Square in NYC. Was a bit shorter than me, and I am 5'10." The listed height looks about right.

Average in Spain is 177cm today
Rey says on 21/Jul/13
I believe Banderas is between 5'7"-5'8" and not a bit over.
Rey says on 21/Jul/13
Most men from southern Spain are not that tall. The North is a different story, but most Spanish men are thin and slender.

A Spaniard who's measured as being 172-173 cms might just round up to 175 cms the way an American who's 5'8.25 will round up to 5'9.
mande2013 says on 30/Jun/13
Fair enough. Let's call it an even 5'9 as the average height for a male spaniard, because if the average height is self-reported rather than measured we can assume the true average is perhaps a few centimeters below what's been given since many tend to round their height up.
Mann says on 22/Jun/13
Average of 172cm for spaniards was true in 1970.
An extensive survey in 2000 (Enkid study) gave 176cm as national average, 177cm for those in the university age.

By the time Banderas got famous in Spain in the eighties (he was in his thirties) the average was already 174cm.
As a kid I (I'm thirty now) i remember his looks as macho and somewhat tallish, he definately got the attention of females and I was decided to be like him when I grew up :)

Kartal

174 cm is actually above average height for a Spanish man! Average male height in Spain is 171-172 cm.

Those boots are pathetic ! He wears them constantly and looks 5'11 when he has them on. Robs listing is spot on. He is below average. In Assassins you see that he is not average.

What is average in your opinion?.. I dont get how 174cm is considered below average when it is only 1cm short of 175 which is universially considired to be the average height..
peaceman says on 20/Mar/13
Looks 5´7

RisingForce your pics of Banderas with Timberlake and Diaz just proved to me that both of them are wearing lifts to look 6 feet tall next to 5'9 Diaz with heels. I say 5'9 because my girlfriend met her in sandals and she said she was AT LEAST 5'9. If anything my girl usually underestimates people's heights rather than overestimate so I believe her 5'9 claim for Diaz. Many other ppl who have met her claim 5'9 for her as well. Anyway Banderas is as listed and a frequent lift wearer and Timberlake is 5'10 MAX. Its obvious they both don't want Diaz to look taller than them on the red carpet! They are both wearing their best lifts.
RisingForce says on 6/Oct/12
I don't think Banderas looks particular short, I definitely don't see 5'7" range and 5'8" flat is possible, but a bit too low, imo. I think he's either 5'8 1/2" or 5'9". In his heels, he comes close to Justin Timberlake's height. Click Here Click Here

I think he can look fairly tall at times, though his shoes have a lot to do with that. I don't think he just wears heels either, I think he'll wear elevators and lifts. Here you can see a battle of the elevators with Sly. Click Here

But I'm not the only one who thinks Banderas appears taller, here's a quote from a Daytona Beach News-Journal on 10/28/05.

"In person, Banderas, who seems even taller than his reported 5 feet 9 inches,"

It seems that Banderas is listed at 5'9", which rules out anything taller, unless that article is once again confusing an I M D B listing with an actors' official listing, which is really why that site should just list actors at their official listings.

But here's a 5'10" listing and a claim that he wears lifts from a 4/16/01 San Antonio Express-News article.

"Banderas stands around 5 feet, 10 inches tall. Antonio stands around 5 feet, 10 inches tall and couldn't get over how his leading lady towered above him when they met. Now he is wearing lifts in his shoes.

That's the nearest match I can think of to how his mother looked but not quite as polished. You might remember her as the "Cigar girl" in the red leather jacket from World is not Enough who blew up the balloon. I think she's listed at 5'10 and half too.
Shaun says on 17/Sep/12
I wouldn't bet on Banderas being over 5 ft 8 anyway...
Shaun says on 17/Sep/12
An old friend of mine had a 5 ft 11 mother who was really hot, everybody in my school fancied her, she looked Spanish or Italian, long dark hair, olive skin and always used to wear tight faded denim jeans and barefeet with paint nail varnish nails and a nice tight white or black t shirt. I remember drinking around his house and flirting with her at 17 or 18!! You can imagine right? But it twigged to me that she actually in some bizarre way looks a bit facially like Banderas in the 90s! She could be his sister or something. The "smouldering" looks I guess you could all it LOL.
Shaun says on 16/Sep/12
Hey Rob this is an interesting photo. All I can say is Cruise must have bought a pair of shoes from Downey or Sly's zapatero in this pic!!

He is at leat 5'8.5.... probably accurate. Not very tall but not the obvious short like Hoffman, Cruise, Pacino, Radcliff,etc.

I'd place a bet that Banderas wouldn't be more than an inch taller than Tom Cruise if formally measured barefoot. In fact I reckon they'd be about the same height. Cruise doesn't belong to the 5'5"-5'6" dead short category maximus and is amusing that you think Cruise looks much shorter! Banderas is in my opinion somewhere around 5 ft 8, could be a smidge under like Cruise.

I agree that new genarations may be taller in spain but i don't think its indicated by a nation's athletic team because a most atheletes are heights that make them more competitve in their sport. An example being Olympic Gymnast Shawn Johnson at 4'9" or Yao Ming at 7'6". The countries national average would be a better denominator
Sergemeister says on 5/Jun/12
I was an extra in "Once upon a time in Mexico" I saw him repeatedly I'm 1.76, my sister is 1.70 and he was shorter than her 1.67 mts max.
Attila_194. says on 24/Jan/12
171 max for Antonio,looks 8/10 cm shorter than 180 of Pitt in 'Interview with the vampire'.
theodore says on 22/Jan/12
He has crazy heels on in Haywire... they are visibly high, especially compared to the shoes Micheal Douglas is wearing. If he is comfortable enough to wear high heels on the outside, you have to wonder what is going on inside his shoes.
