Comment on the Height of Bruce Willis

nathaniel said on 15/Nov/15
seen him 1 year ago 6 foot 1
Dmeyer said on 10/Nov/15
Willis never wore lifts but he did wear thick boots at Times Like in armaggeddon , or on some events in the 1.6in style but he more oftenly wear 1in or under than 1in or over , Guys Like sly or arnie évén when without lifts allways wear 1.1-1.4ish style
Les said on 7/Nov/15
I'm 6'1" and stood next to him once (about 15 years ago). He looked to be about my height. I don't think he was wearing lifts or anything like that.
the shredder said on 3/Nov/15
He looked close to 6'0 honestly.

6'0 peak. 5'11 current. He won't be a flat 5'10 until he's close to 70

Men don't lose 2" by 70. They lose just over an inch.
Danimal said on 1/Nov/15
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/15
Actually he was looking shorter than 6ft guys (Hanks, Travolta, Washington) even in the 90' order for him to have been that, he'd need to look over that mark.

Hanks was never over 5'11".
dmeyer said on 1/Oct/15
Today at night wath is more likely 5'10.5 10.75 or 11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/15
During the Moonlighting/Die Hard years he might have brushed 6ft.
dmeyer said on 16/Sep/15
Peak 181-2cm today 180cm 10 yrs back 180-1cm

Rob, in their prime who do you think was taller Bruce Willis or Alec Baldwin?
[Editor Rob: hard to call that.]

I think they were same height! However if I have to bet if was "more 5'11.5" Willis or Baldwin I would say Willis!

A few people who met him at peak estimate him 5'9-10 to he was nothing under 5'11-11.5 now 5'10.5-11 aleast

I'd love to find those Letterman interviews...
Swparker19 said on 28/Jun/15
my wife met Bruce Willis back in the day at Donzi's, a bar in Pittsburgh at the time he was filming striking distance. My wife is 5'7" and in those days most certainly wore 3-4 inch heals. She estimated his height at 5'7" at the most as she was looking down on him.

Hey those pics with ED Norton, Bill Murray clearly show them in various pics sa next to each other for actual pictures for the show. Murray looks 3 inches taller and Norton is also taller than willis. They all have similar dress shoes almost exact. I think willis was never over 5'11". With shoes everyone is 6 foot. I think he needs a downgrade.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jun/15
182-183cm peak
j said on 27/May/15
he had to be 6 feet at his peak but said he was 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/15
"He looked really muscular in his prime"

One of the reasons he stood out as the 3rd big action star was because he didn't have conventional physique that counterparts Arnold and Sly had. He's even admitted that he hates working out.
Dmeyer said on 3/May/15
I could see willis 181.5cm 179.5-80cm now he looks about 5'11 dosnt look a small as 5' 10.5 very fit Guy
youssef 5'8 said on 11/Mar/15
he doesn't look like a tall guy seems average i never thought he is over 5'10
James B said on 10/Mar/15
He looked really muscular in his prime.

Any guesses on his weight at his peak rob?
[Editor Rob: he has probably varied from 170-200 range over time.]

Will have to disagree with the comments about Willis looking taller than Brad Pitt in "12 Monkeys" and shorter than Matthew Perry on "Friends" or in the movie "Whole Nine Yards". I thought he looked spot-on even with both actors. I mean there were shots of Willis/Pitt in the mental ward in 12M where Willis was closer to the camera giving the appearance he was taller, however, later in the movie when the two are right next to each other- exactly the same height. As far as Perry, looked about exactly the same too. Maybe Willis, barefoot end of day height, is actually only 5'10.5"-??
[Editor Rob: the camera angles in Monkeys weren't really conventional horizontal styles.]
gez said on 24/Feb/15
Never been anything over 5' 11" in his life. A 5'10.4 today, a weak 5' 11" standing completely straight at his peak.
CDS said on 23/Feb/15
To me, this guy looks about 5'11", but can certainly pull off 6'1" in his movies, due to good posture, and having a well-proportioned build. While living in Cali, my cousin saw him in person, along with James Garner filming the movie "Sunset", back in 1987. He described Willis as "tall and thin". Interesting since my cousin himself is 6'2". I'm going to go with a good solid 5'11" barefoot (6' in shoes). He looked taller than John Malkovich in the movie "RED" (who claims 6'1", but most on here who've seen him in person say he's actually barely 5'11"). He looked a hair shorter than 6' John Travolta in "Pulp Fiction". And going back to his early career (probably before any major lift-wearing- IF he's a lift-wearer), he looked only about an inch taller than 5'10" Phil Hartman in the movie "Blind Date".
Hypado said on 19/Feb/15
Anyone here watch the tv series ''Moonlighting'' ???

In that great 80s tv show:

Bruce Willis height is 5ft 11.5in (182 cm)
Cybill Shepherd height: 5ft 8in (173 cm)

Definitely this.

5ft 10in for Bruce Willis it's out of the question.
annon said on 18/Feb/15
Willis did have about an inch on pitt in twelve monkeys. Pitt had some special shoes. I think willis was a strong 5'11" peak and pitt at most 5'10.
Johnny said on 18/Feb/15
Mickey rourke appears to be taller than willis in pics who is also listed 1.80???
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/15
Could have been 6ft in the 80's. Looked every bit of it in Die Hard and Moonlighting.
Hypado said on 10/Feb/15
People of celebheights, i watch today, The Fifth Element, a great movie by the way.

Bruce Willis - 182/183 cm
Milla Jokovich - 173/174 cm

Dmeyer said on 9/Feb/15
Peak solid 5'11.5 now 5'10.75-11
184.3cm said on 27/Jan/15
Had an inch on Brad Pitt in Twelve Monkeys, Pitt in shoes, Willis had slippers. Pitt is a weak 5'11 in my opinion so Willis being a weak 6' at peak seems reasonable to me.
Joe said on 26/Jan/15
I think he was around 5'11" in his prime, possibly a bit over 5'10 but him claiming to be 6 feet is just silly. I think a little bit over 5'10" would be just right for him, Samuel L Jackson just towered over him in Unbreakable and there was a scene where the two were facing each other face to face, and Jackson had at least 5 inches on him, so I am guessing he is 5'10" and nothing more without shoes.
Steve said on 20/Jan/15
Just because he was barefoot through most of one movie, doesn't dismiss the fact he wears lifts in many features. He had huge ones in both Armageddon and The Fifth Element.
184.3cm said on 19/Jan/15
Yes Steve that is right he was..So much for being a lift wearer eh? Close to 6' at peak, guy had no problem at all running around barefoot next to tall guys.
teej said on 18/Jan/15
I could buy 6ft. On die hard he does look a strong 182cm if not 183cm. I think he's lost more than a cm of height, he's probably 180cm now so a strong 5'10 or weak 5'11. But in his prime i do believe he was 6ft
Steve said on 15/Jan/15
Willis was barefoot through much of the film.
184.3cm said on 15/Jan/15
Was he wearing lifts in Die Hard? Didnt seem that much shorter than Alan Rickman who had shoe advantage..
Steve said on 13/Jan/15
I doubt he's ever been taller than 5'10". Another notorious lft wearer.
Dmeyer said on 13/Jan/15
Anything under 5'10.5 peak or 5'10 now hasnt met bruce , both peak and now about 5'11
tristan said on 12/Jan/15
In willis's friends episodes he always seems shorter than 5 11.25 Perry at that point of time he would mid 40's so I don't think he could have lost height
jason said on 11/Jan/15
I saw him play with his band at house of blues in Anaheim I'm six foot he ain't a higher than 5'8 if that and he had high dress shoes on. I couldn't believe how short he is, he looks so tall on the move
Birdman said on 3/Jan/15
He looks 5'9" to me in relation to his surroundings and the rest of his body. I saw a site that claimed he had 20 inch biceps. I worked out 6 days a week 3 1/2 hours a day with extremely heavy weights, 30 sets of 10 reps and the largest I got my arms were 18 1/2 inches of course I didn't take steroids I benched 450lbs finished my bicep workout ended with 55# in 5# increments going to 80 # all they had. Try again Bruce.

jamie179cm said on 6/Dec/14
@Judd i think pitt is no taller than 177cm because hes a lift wear and barely taller than Paltrow in barefeet and imo wills did look 5ft9 in red in barefeet also in movies they can make people look taller
Judd said on 6/Dec/14
5'9" is ridiculous...i watched recently 12 monkeys and he edged out Brad Pitt, who's nothing less than 5'10.5" for sure...Willis probably had a shoes disadvantage, because he wore sandals while pitt wore dress shoes...
5'11.5" for Willis as peak height seems fair to me...
nomadsan said on 2/Dec/14
Danced with him in Vancouver he is 5'9 or was maybe shorter now..
James Sinclair said on 26/Nov/14
Many posts pretend that a man in his fifties may easily have lost around one inch. This isn´t so frequent today (nutrition, gim, etc help people stand at peak height even in the mid sixties,....unless talking ´bout a person who´s been working in the construction jobs for decades,....or picking up heavy bags at port....
Judd said on 26/Nov/14
In Armageddon he looked very tall, close in height to Ben Affleck, about 2" on Will Patton and Billy Bob Thornton (both 5'9.7510") and a bit taller than William Fitchner (5'11.5-6'), however there's always a chance he wore lifts.
In my opinion he was 5'11.25-11.5" peak and today 5'10.75-11"...he lost a quite big amount for his age!
jamie179cm said on 25/Nov/14
@Alucard i agree in the film red he did look 5ft9 in barefoot he looks like he has a body frame of a 179cm guy though i agree he probably is in the 5ft9 range
184.3cm said on 22/Nov/14
Maybe 5'10.5 nowadays (179cm). But i defo think Rob is right with his peak height, Strong 5'11 guy at peak.
Joe said on 19/Nov/14
To me Willis seems like 5-10, I think like many Hollywood actors he wears lifts to make him appear taller. He is also fairly skinny, which makes him appear taller to people.
Alucard said on 16/Nov/14
Always been around 5'9 max, cm less cm more, maybe 5'8... Unbelievable how lifts, camera angles, pictures and such can fool a lot of people...
Dmeyer said on 5/Nov/14
With uraban 184-5cm he looks Max 179-80cm
Dmeyer said on 18/Oct/14
Anything under 180cm peak is a joke
nivison said on 8/Oct/14
most on here are seriously deluded...I am 1.90m I was in the same post production offices as him in London when working on The Fifth Element in 1997 (he would have been 41/42). I was shocked at how short he was...walked past him repeatedly smoking with his bleached hair before I realised who it was..he is 1.75 (5'9") absolute tops and probably closer to 1.70 barefoot. After living in LA for a few years I came to realise pretty much every guy in that town has some height "assistance"...
Len said on 6/Oct/14
5'10.5" or 5'11" peak. Might be 5'10" nowadays.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Oct/14
Well in fairness to G, watching Pulp Fiction years ago I always believed this guy as being 6ft1, Travolta 6ft2, Samuel L. Jackson 6ft3-6ft4, Uma Thurman 6ft and Quentin Tarantino 6ft3...oh and Ving Rhames at 6ft1 too.
Sam said on 1/Oct/14
Uh, Willis is not in the Bruckenheimer photos, are you confusing him with Ben Kingsley due to the full bald look?
Judd said on 22/Sep/14
Peak 5'11.25" and 5'10.5" today. He was 0.75" shorter than Tom Hanks (6'00")
Clay said on 21/Sep/14
I think New York G had Bruce Willis at 6'2'' if memory serves.
177cmGuy said on 21/Sep/14
6'0 peak. 5'11 current. He won't be a flat 5'10 until he's close to 70
jamie179cm said on 17/Sep/14
rob i doubt that he has ever be over 5ft11 in his life
jamie179cm said on 17/Sep/14
devil 180cm is not tall
Paleman said on 16/Sep/14
He did look 5'11,5 in the first Die Hard, and didn't seem to have lost much height 15 years later in Sin City. I was actually surprised that he looked almost as tall as 6'1 Michael Madsen. Of course, the latter seemed to slouch quite a bit like he usually does, he could've very well looked two inches taller than Willis with a straight posture.

5'11 seems plausible for today, 5'10,5 (179cm) may be nearing a fraction too low. 5'11,5 for peak is entirely possible.
devil said on 31/Aug/14
in die hard 1 bruce looks like a midget against those terrorrists. bruce is tall man 180 is correct but he isn't like james bond type. a 5'9 guy like mel gibson that is also tall but not like brucie.
jamie179cm said on 30/Aug/14
i think bruce looks the same height as me or maybe 178cm but why do people who have met him say hes 5ft8 or 5ft9?
winston said on 19/Aug/14
watched him on david letterman, hard to tell.
Dmeyer said on 11/Aug/14
When he stands tall he can look 180-181cm so no léss than 180cm
186 cm said on 4/Aug/14
Alex 6'0 said on 1/Jul/14
I def agree Willis 5'11 today. His peak looked 5'11.5-6'0 range
Dmeyer said on 22/Jun/14
Rob relooking at willis early pics he can realy look about 6ft with Guys Like travolta and Tarantino and others , 181.5-2cm peak 181cm 5 yrs back 180cm today
[Editor Rob: half inch loss with all his roles isn't too bad at his age.]
Dmeyer said on 14/Jun/14
I think solid 181cm peak 180cm now heading to 179cm
Sean73 said on 12/Jun/14
Who do you think was taller at 25yrs old-Willis or Peter Weller?They both have claimed 6 foot plus in their prime.
[Editor Rob: I think Weller has suffered more height loss, it's strange to think he was 6ft when at times he looks nearer 5ft 10.5 today]
James B said on 11/Jun/14
Most of the time in his early movies looked like a typical 180-181cm 5'11 guy. I guess though his stocky mesomorphic build could make him look shorter. He must have weighed like 180 pounds in his prime.
RisingForce said on 6/Jun/14
Yeah, 6'1" seemed like more of a listing than a direct claim, since I doubt Bruce manages his website. 6 feet seems like what he'd claim since he never seemed height conscious and he could look it, or very close in the 90's in movies and at some events.
jamieorr4 said on 6/Jun/14
lol if Bruce Willis is 411 then tom cruise much be 46 or 47 lol i would say 510 or 510.5
Dmeyer said on 5/Jun/14
Maybe John Smith meant 6'2 wish mâkes Bruce 5'11
the shredder said on 5/Jun/14
His 6 ft 0 claim was out of his own mouth , 6'1 is a joke , but so is 5'10
five seven guy said on 4/Jun/14
Just watched the fifth element. He looked bigger than Chris tucker who is claimed as 6'0.5" on here. I feel like Chris tucker has to be 5'11" ish. Willis might be peak 6'0"
Concerned 181 cm said on 31/May/14
Another case where I wonder why he didn't just claim 6'0. Timberlake and Vin Diesel (if Rob's estimates are accurate) are other examples of this. If you're so close to 6 feet, close enough that you could probably fool everybody for that last half inch with just good posture and MAYBE slightly bigger shoes, why would you instead completely out yourself as a liar by claiming 6'1-6'2?
jordydecke said on 26/May/14
@John Smith - that's interesting, so Bruce Willis is only 4'11? His marketing team must be amazing to make him look taller. I wonder if he has a special invisible platform that he stands on for photographs etc...
john smith said on 25/May/14
I met Bruce Willis in NYC about ten years ago, I'm 5 foot 2 inches and was about 3 inches taller than him,he's a real nice guy!

at least 5 '11 peak and like 190 lb
RisingForce said on 15/May/14
I agree, he looked more than just 5'11" flat in the 80's and 90's. I don't remember there being a big difference between Bruce and Damon Wayans who is listed at 6'1.5" here in one of my favorite Bruce Willis movies, The Last Boy Scout, not more than 2", iirc. Denzel Washington is listed at 6'0.25" peak here, and he was only a little taller than Bruce in The Siege, iirc and very similar to Bruce in a series of pics from an event, maybe just a fraction taller max, plus, Bruce was wearing boots in Die Hard 2, but I remember him having a pretty clear height advantage over 5'9"-5'9.5" Dennis Franz. Bruce does look like he's lost a little height, not sure when that started, perhaps sometime around 2005-2007, but I think he has to still be 5'11" minimum today, I can't buy 5'10" range.
dmeyer said on 15/May/14
i agree Willis is steel 180cm when in same footwear he dosnt look more than 4-5cm shorter then 185cm jay Courtney ,
Alex 6'0 said on 14/May/14
I wouldn't give him anything below 5'10.5-5'10.75 today
Alex 6'0 said on 14/May/14
5'11.5 peak. He looked about 6'0 in his younger days. Today no more than 5'11
Lmeister said on 25/Apr/14
Bruce does look 5ft11-6ft0 in most of his moviese except next to Tom Hanks in The Bonfire of the Vanities. In that movie he looks 5ft9.5-5ft10.5. I really doubt Tom Hanks wearing lifts. Did Bruce start wearing lifts in the 90s or could it be that he never was a full 5ft11?
James B said on 1/Apr/14
Most of the time struck me as looking 5'11 in his films. In the jackal though I thought that was one of the few movies where he did look 182cm.
Kendall said on 1/Apr/14
If he's 5'11 Ashton Kutcher is 6'5
jamieorr4 said on 25/Mar/14
i always thought he look 5ft10.5 like me but i herad people who have met him say hes 5ft8
Rinaldi said on 23/Mar/14
I assume that his height is no more than 6 feet.
rockfellas said on 24/Feb/14
here with stallone, willis struggles with 5'9", please!!!: Click Here

Never been over 5'10.5" at his peak. For sure.
truthseeker said on 15/Feb/14
In movies Willis never comes across as a big guy, particularly in street scenes. 5'11 is still quite big and he never appears this height to me, I would say he is no more than 5'9... 6'1 ego much?

Comparing actors heights with each other is pointless because they all exaggerate.
Rob Van said on 12/Feb/14
I heard Arnold Schwarzeinger is 5 ft 11. Why is people saying he is 6 ft 1...
dmeyer said on 30/Jan/14
Rob , 3 friend of mine who met him all said barely 5'11 peak like 5'10.5
dmeyer said on 30/Jan/14
Sorry mike You Never met Bruce , anything under 5'10-11 is a joke
Mike knows said on 26/Jan/14
Bruce is no where near 5'11.5 inches. I met him at Teterboro airport standing shoulder to shoulder I had to look down at him while he was yelling at someone for revealing who he was. My best guess is he is 5'6" to 5'7". I'm 5'11" tall so if I had to look down at his face and eyes he must have left he elevator shoes home lol
D-Rellik said on 26/Jan/14
He's 5 foot 9 looked spot on that with Tom Hanks and now hes suddenly gained a few inches hes definitely a lift wearer.
averagegiant said on 18/Jan/14
5'11.2? your eyes are special. I could easily picture running into a lot of celeberties to find my self shocked (or not) at how they are not at their presented heights. Someone in Hollywood is lying and it's likely that it's nearly everyone. Mel Gibson is 6 feet, take it as concrete evidence because I said so.
DMEYER said on 2/Jan/14
he can pull off 181cm today only when he forces posture and others dont 5 ft 11 is right 180cm and a lidl taller peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/13
182.25cm peak, 181cm now.

He's never been 6 foot or 5ft 11, i'm 6ft and he's 3 inches shorter

I think Bruce Willis may be more like 5'9.5 or 5'10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/13
Rob, is a fraction under 6ft, like 5ft11.75/182cm possible for his peak?
the shredder said on 11/Dec/13
Sly looks 5'11 there ha ha
Vibram said on 9/Dec/13
Looks about 2 inches shorter than the then 6ft1 (185cm) Arnold S'wznegger (and I'm being generous to Arnold as he could of been 6ft0.75 (184cm) at his peak). This was taken in 1992 or so, so both men would of been at peak height. Click Here

- 5ft11.2 (181cm) for Willis peak
- 5ft10.4 (178.5cm) today.
DMEYER said on 9/Dec/13
can pull off 181cm today with perfect posture 5 ft 11 is near 180.5cm anyway , he might be more 5 ft 11 than 5 ft 10.75
truth said on 6/Dec/13
180cm, posssibly solid 181cm peak, now a very strong 179cm.
Ted said on 30/Nov/13
LOL @the "he's 5'8" now" comment. 'And then you woke up'.

He looks 5'11" in most anything nowadays, maybe 5'10.5". He should stop trying to claim 6' or 6'1" elsewhere, he clearly isn't.
wobbs said on 26/Nov/13
I met bruce while he was shooting in budapest, he is no more than 5'8" nowdays
hes a nice guy though and took the time to talk
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/13
He might still make 5ft11.25in/181cm. Personally, I think he's a fraction taller than someone like Uma Thurman and then slightly shorter than guys like Schwarzenegger and Travolta.

He's not average.
jbreeze69 said on 21/Nov/13
I met Bruce back in December 1986 (Moonlighting days) at a Colorado ski resort. The guy is 5'9... maybe 5'10 MAX with shoes. A lot of actors under 5'10 wear 2" hidden lifts / insoles in their shoes. That's the only way he would be 5'11 or 6'.
Hypado said on 12/Nov/13
181 cm
Balrog said on 7/Nov/13
I can buy 181cm at peak and a shy under 5'11" now. But he can look 179 at times too.
biko said on 29/Oct/13
bruce is maybe 179,5cm now and 180cm when he was middle aged

I have watched a vidéo of 3 years ago and willis Is realy not more than 0.5 in shorter than arnie if Bruce Is 5'11 now he was max 5'11 1\8 3 years back arnie Is about 5'11.5-11.75 willis Can look 181 cm alot even lately i think might a 180.5cm Guy as He look 180cm as often as 181cm rob do you think Bruce today is a 180cm flat Guy like barely 5'11 or nearer 180.5cm like solid 5'11

5'11" max today. The Rock is 4-5 inches taller and Jonathan Pryce 1.5-2 inches taller in GI joe.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 22/Oct/13
5'11.5 peak for Willis seems right. He's almost 60 years old. No way is he as tall as he was in his younger days. No more than 5'11 for him today. Maybe even just shy of 5'11
Rob G said on 22/Sep/13
He is/was 5'11"
caaq said on 10/Sep/13
I think wearing normal shoes or keds, he was about 6 feet without hair in fire with fire. He stood about 3 inches shorter than the villain who had a mug shot showing him as 6-3, which I guess was with shoes. That means bruce was 5-11 aprox without shoes. Some could try squeezing him down to 5-10.5 by dipping the angle of the scale on his head towards the wall, in their over enthusiasm to not over measure. And besides, this is the late afternoon height. Maybe in the morning he still could be 5-11.5. I guess calling him 5-11 is a safe bet. And he somehow doesn't look like he shrank one bit since die hard. Maybe he looked a bit taller then because of his bristling hair.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/13
"Peak height was 5ft 11.75in (182cm)"
Looked roughly 6ft in the 80s and 90s.
Today might be closer to 5ft11.
Lorne said on 30/Aug/13
Less than 181cm peak is a joke, he was classic "weak tall" when younger, could look close to 6ft with good posture. I think the listing is perfect, he barely looks shorter than guys like Travolta, and was taller tha BP.
cole said on 21/Aug/13
The one thing about Bruce at 5'11 that throws me off is that he can look only an inch taller than 5'9 Justin Long when in equal footwear, (there's a couple of shots of Long in converse and Bruce in dress shoes, and Bruce obviously looks a good 2 inches or so taller) but more or less the same height as 5'11 Mickey Rourke in a few shots. You could argue he's maybe more 5'10/10.5 range these days, although I'm barely hanging on to the possibility that he's still close to 5'11.
JAM said on 19/Aug/13
I find it hard to believe he ever hit 6 feet. He looks 5'11 MAX. 5'10 on a normal day.
lelman said on 18/Aug/13
Always looks about 5'11" - 6' in everything. Occasionally will look 5'10"ish, but generally I'd say 5'11" minimum. Peak was definitely close to 6'.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Aug/13
Yeah, he looked 6 ft in the Die Hard films and in his younger years, 5'11" today. He comes across though as being a Grade A asshole in interviews though, massive ego and demanding $4 million for 4 days shooting!! I'd hate to interview him because you can imagine him putting on that pained face and him picking holes in everything you ask him.
Silent d said on 12/Aug/13
Wasn't there an argument between sly and willis? That is why he's not in E3. 180cm.
Brad said on 8/Aug/13
Wanted to wear big boots in E3, Sly showed him the door.
Knowitall said on 31/Jul/13
Shelby, in this photo Hanks still appears to be taller:

Why put Hanks on a box? Why would his character tower over Willis's?
Shelb said on 30/Jul/13
Knowitall: Hanks was on an apple box to appear taller. Look at his pants, unless he was a 60/40 upper leg to lower leg ratio, he's standing on something to look taller.

Willis cannot be less than 5"11"/180cm.
Personally, I think he's still 181cm.

He looked 6" in Die Hard

greg said on 16/Jul/13
Gotta say, looking at images from media events Willis in his younger days (as denoted by the presence of hair), he really did look at least 5'11", possibly more.
Dmeyer said on 14/Jul/13
Willis defenetly looked 4cm taller than 177-178cm Colin farell so was 181.5cm nô less i have met farell he wasnt under 5'9.5 willis looked 181cm easily near him aldo Bruce CAN look just 8-8.5cm on cruise so just 180 maybe 181cm so hiS péak height is defenetly as listed wether hé was 5'11.5 Night or late morning , today he looks near the 180cm mark by near 60

The Rock isn't 6'3, he never have been. I think he have been 6'2.5 - 6'2.75, but is now 6'1.75 - 6'2. He was taller 15 - 20 years ago.
dmeyer181.2-183.8 said on 9/Apr/13
in most shots he looks 4cm and likely 5 cm shorter than 184.5-185cm courtney , in some he can look 1 in shorter , and in some he can look as mush as 6cm shorter but he has mocassin type that give 1.3-1.6cm 0.5-0.6in compare to 1-1.2 in
Dmeyer said on 7/Apr/13
Bruce looks a solid 10cm under the rock at the premiere
El Mariachi said on 4/Apr/13
5'11" is bull****. He looked only almost 3 inches shorter than The Rock who is listed at 6'3" on CelebHeights, in G.I. Joe. I would give Willis a legit 6'0".
Dmeyer said on 4/Apr/13
Rob is it pissible Bruce was never more than legit 181cm like 5'11.25/181cm dinner time , waking at 6 ft/183cm answer if you can
[Editor Rob: it's not impossible, but near 5ft 11.5 peak I think he could look in the 80's to 90's]
Dmeyer said on 3/Apr/13
Absolute shortest peak height 5'11 180cm and probably more 5'11.25-11.5 181-182cm now he CAN Look 179-81cm 5'10.5-11.25

I was in a bathroom at Dave and Buster's in Honolulu and he walked in and peed next to me. He is about 5'8. If he is 6ft. and I'm 5'10, then why was I at LEAST 2 inches taller?

Um... Maybe he was giving you a shake and vac in the toilet and you misjudged his height leaning over to do it? He could look an easy 6 ft a lot, see the picture on the Cruise page.
Dmeyer said on 29/Mar/13
Rob all my friend who met Bruce claim he is 5'10.5 range some say 5'11 , they all met him at peak , to me he does Look 5'11+ peak , also all my friends who met Clooney say he is legit 180cm , i have a pics of Clooney looking 3 in above 5'7 friend who has 0.5 in more shoes
[Editor Rob: maybe with bruce, he has I think a longer head and that can always fool people a bit.]
Dmeyer said on 27/Mar/13

I think bruce is 180.5cm wish explain 180-181 cm Look , Rob since you list him 5'11-180cm do you think 180cm flat is liklyer than 180.5cm , if you thaught Bruce was 180.5cm you would have list him 181cm
Dmeyer said on 22/Mar/13
He claims 6 ft , and looks over 5'11 peak so either got measured 5'11.75-6 ft not long after bed , or just rounded from 5'11.5 to 6 ft , considering he defenetly was nô less than 6'0.25 out of bed and 0.5 in over 5'11 at night it is fair to claim 6 ft , hé might not know That he lost a bit of height as he is 1 in away from 6' now

Looked same as arnie in EX 2,even a tiny bit over him,,footwear though is not seen.

6 feet at least... you can check him next to Jai Courtney in newest Die Hard movie and you´ll see that he´s got to be still at least 6ft.

Bruce CAN Look just 3cm shorter than 185cm courtnay in some CAN Look 5cm shorter with poorer posture or when Bruce has a mocassin That give Max 0,7 in , bruce CAN Still Look 181-181.5cm hé also looks a solid 5cm over 176cm Levitt Rob are you sûre hé is 180cm flat

If Willis was 181cm now 0.5cm under 5'11.5 Rob would have never put him 5'11 if Rob list him 5'11 it méans Bruce is Max 5'11 possibly 5'10.75

5'10.5 today 5'11.25 peak is not impossible either.

He may have just scraped 182cm on a good in his 20s.

5'11 seems correct, since jai courtney in the new die hard movie is 6'1" and they stand next to each other half the movie you notice they are fairly close in height,

Rob u mentioned once that Bruce was at least 2 inches shorter than Johnathan Ross and that was in 2006....

0.5 in at 58 he didnt do bad

Why has he already lost 2cm of height at 57?

Rob, dont ignore my photo. take a look at all photos with bruce willis and jai courtney and ud see that jai is easily taller then bruce for at least 2 inches. your thoughts?
[Editor Rob: he can look a weak 5ft 11 at times today yeah]
James said on 4/Feb/13
I was just saying he is kinda towered by Ashton kutcher in pics. A 3 inch difference is hardly big or towering.

I think maybe

Bruce Willis 180-181cm
Ashton Kutcher 189-190cm

So close too 4 inches between the 2 men.
xaoxio said on 4/Feb/13

sorry Rob but Willis is struggling with 5'11" nowadays, let alone anything taller. what you think?

Indeed Bruce doesnt look any taller than 5'10 range....

85 kg for a 5'11'' is far to be thin. Willis never looked more than 5'11''. 179-180 cm.
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Feb/13
James, Willis did look much shorter than Gabriel Aubry, listed at 6'2. The same Aubry looked at least 3-4 cms shorter than Tom Welling, who's supposed to be shy of 6'3 :)

Dont Forget the Guy is almost 60 85 kg for 180+ cm is pretty thin since he has muscle too of 85 kg at 5'11 for a none muscular Guy in 20s is not thin

Well if Ashton kutcher is 6'2.5 then Bruce really does not look 182cm more like 5'10 range

Lol @ 85kgs being thin for a 5'11er, thats absurd. He and Matt Perry need to be switched. Willis is more 181-180 and Perry 182.

I can't wait for a nice day to die. It looks so action packed and awesome. Bruce looks quite ripped for an old man who is nearly 60. He has to be at least 85-90 kilos. 180cm.

His peak is somewere 5' 11.25-11.75 , not less than 181cm or over 182cm today he could be near strong 180cm , IF i met him 10 years we would have Been similar , now at 181.3-181.5 for me he could be 0.25-0.5 in shorter than me
Trey said on 7/Jan/13
Think I've said it before but might aswell say it again. He's a bootwearer. Never over 5'11. 5'10.5 most likely today. 5'10 loose posture.

Considering how he looks near 182.5-183cm Norton he cant be over 181cm

This guy has been victimized a little I think. I feel that Bruce measured himself back in the 80s and saw he was a little off 6' so he just went fir the 6' as opposed to 5'11". He is an action hero for gods sake, He needs to be tall!

Lowest estimate is a Guy who met Bruce several Times and told me Bruce is 5'10-10.25 , but 5'7-8 is a joke
Chief said on 29/Nov/12
I stood right next to him at a party on the roof of D & B he's around my height about 5'8". I don't know where people get the idea he's six feet. My friend was five four and he was surprised at how short and thin he was. We figured maybe 5'7" and a 145 lbs at most.

Defenetly somwere 5'11.25-11.75 peak now 5'11
5\'11, 17 said on 25/Nov/12
I would say 5'11 judging by the movie 'unbreakable'. He's taller than a good majority of men on the movie, but doesn't quite stand out like a 6 footer would, if there's even a noticeable between those two heights. It's a good height for a man, he should be proud.
Mathew said on 24/Nov/12

if bruce willis stood back to back with harrison ford i think bruce would be 1 cm taler. Bruce willis peak 183 and now maybe 182,5. Harrison ford peak 184,7 (close to 185 but a little under) and now a weak 182, maybe 181
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
Someone exaggerated on john malkovich. I was looking at another page and it said he was 6 foot 1. Sorry for my mistake. Bruce looked close to 6 foot in cop out next to sean william scott and tracy morgan. 180cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/12
He lookef 3in shorter than Kutcher, maybe 3.5in at most.
But I think it could be a case of Kutcher being 6ft2.75(190cm) and Willis being 5ft11.25(181cm), worst case scenario.

In shoes Willis would Be at 6ft

5'11.75-6'0.5 in shoes depending thin trainer or boot
Aragorn 5\'11 said on 25/Oct/12
He was 5'11.5 or 6'0 in his youthhood. But nowadays he's more a solid 5'11. In shoes however, he look 6' feet or a little more.

Under 5'11" is a joke for Bruce at any time of the day. Look at him with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in premiere pics, he has a good 2 inches on him. Shaun's post is yet another example. It's not a full body shot with Malcovich and we can't see the ground, but Bruce does look comfortably taller.

180cm. I heard john malkovich is 6 foot 1 on another page.

yeah shaun but john is wearing converse isn't he? I bet as well in some of those pics willis has pavement advantage. plus in one of those pics when they are walking down the road john has poor posture compared too bruce.

in my opinon bruce could be 179cm these days. i bet as well if you met john malkovich in person he would look no taller than 5'11 beause of the way he carries himself.
