He appeared on an episode of Twin Peaks many years ago (a year or so prior to X-Files I think) as a cross-dressing DEA agent. He was at least 3in taller than Kyle Maclachlan but was probably in heels.

Was closer to 6'1" than a flat 6'0" during the 1990's. May be a flat 6'0" today though.
Dmeyer says on 30/Nov/14
Looked 185cm in person no less
Arch Stanton says on 29/Nov/14
LOL even Viper believes he's a legit 6 ft!!

I think this listing is actually fair and reliable! He's 6'0.25"...he looked that next guys like nicholas Lea, Mitch pileggi, william b davis...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 28/Nov/14
"Peak height was 6ft 0¾in (185cm)"
"David Duchovny's height is 6ft 0¼in (184cm)"

Looked pretty close to 6ft1 in The X-Files. Still looks minimum 6ft in Californication.

He looked 2in below Rick Springfield on Californication...
judd says on 10/Sep/14
[Editor Rob: he claimed 6ft and one time did say 'a little over it', which suggest 6ft 0.25 range during x-files. 6ft 1 out of bed is likely.]

yeah i agree...he looks a strong 6'...he could be the same size of Alex?
judd says on 10/Sep/14
rob, he was 6' at night and close to 6'1 early in the morning, in the first seres of X-F?
[Editor Rob: he claimed 6ft and one time did say 'a little over it', which suggest 6ft 0.25 range during x-files. 6ft 1 out of bed is likely.]
Kostas says on 25/Aug/14
Wasn't a photo of Big G and Duchovny in here? Big G told you that he looked 1.84 in person.
Lenad is sexy says on 10/Jan/14
one of the few 6'0 claiming guys in Hollywood and genuinely looks it
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/13
Rob, could he have lost a fraction at 53?
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't expect much, but a few mm isn't outwith the realms of probability for people in 50's.]

RoadRunner says on 9/Sep/13
Saw him at the US Open Final today and walked by him back and forth like an idiot. Surprisingly taller than I expected. Looked taller than 6'0. He's 6'1 easy.
cole says on 22/Aug/13
Wouldn't go over the 183 cm he claimed himself. He is a legit, honest 6 footer.
Jax says on 21/Aug/13
quite possibly the only male celebrity who doesnt lie when it comes to height...statham, pitt, stallone, diesel and so on, just round up an inch or two and put on their custom made lift shoes to sell their lie....duchovny on the other hand always looked a legit 6ft the utmost lowest he is 182cm, but in his younger days definitely a full 6ft
Viper says on 7/Aug/13
Hes the only legit 6'0 in hollywood, lol
vic 183-185 says on 23/Mar/13
Duchovny looks indeed 2 in taller than 5'10 Michael C. Hall and 1 in shorter than 6'1 Jason Clarke (both listed on this site) in that pic:

Silent d says on 10/Feb/13
I watched kalifornia again and he definitely is 6 foot.
Joey says on 16/Jan/13
no arguments here, he does look 6ft range as he claims....but i dont think he is 184cm as listed on this site....and nowadays 182cm is possible since he is getting old after all....anyways...182cm-183cm is spot on
Hew says on 9/Jan/13
Unlike DiCaprio, Timberlake and others, he's the kind of guy that strikes you as a legit 6-footer by first sight. He's definitely 6ft or a bit taller. Wouldn't rule out 6'1.
Rak says on 17/Dec/12
If sean william scott is listed 5 ft 11.25 then duchovny has to minimum 6ft 0.75 in because he has easily 1.5 inches (if not slighty more) of adventage on sean, both wearing similar footwear.
Rak says on 17/Dec/12
Maybe he claims he is 6'0 but he doesnt care about his height or appearing taller than he is. He could easily be 6'0 1/2 , but he doesnt care about it. Not every american is obsessed about height.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 12/Dec/12
Textbook example of a legit 6'.
Sam says on 3/Dec/12
In Twin Peaks, he looked quite tall in high heels. There's a shoot though where his character is out of drag and it looks like there that Kyle MacLachlan has a fractional height edge over him.
les says on 1/Dec/12
according to celebheights, there is a 5cm difference between David and Callum Keith Rennie, although in californication they look exactly the same height almost all of the time. and there are scenes when you know they have no footwear or it's equal. Rob, what do you think of that? I can upload a screenshot if needed.
Dmeyer says on 30/Nov/12
In person was a Lidl taller taller than me i was 6'0.5 in shoes on , hé had converse so somewere 6'0.75-1in converse on if hé is 183.5cm they looked Brand new so they gave near 1.6-1.7 cm so 183.5+1.7= 185.2cm i was in 2.7cm shoes so was 184-184.1cm so hé was Max 1cm taller in person maybe his haïr fooled me

Legit 6'0".
Silent d says on 8/Oct/12
All the claims under 6 foot are laughable. He is a legit 6 footer. I don't know who else doesn't lie about their height. I can only think of heidi klum, jackie chan and a few others.
barney says on 16/Sep/12
legit 6 feet...184 cm is what he is...Click Here
Vic says on 11/Sep/12
Considering he says he's 1.83m, it would be fair to assume 183cm is his low and that at best he hits 185 cm out of bed. Hence the impression that he is a little over 6ft. what do you guys think?
Keltoi says on 6/Sep/12
David Duchovny under 5'11" seriously mate?

The guy has always looked tall and he more than held his own beside Mitch Pileggi, and Nicholas Lea in the X-Files. He looked similar in height to Robert Patrick when he joined the series, if not a little bit taller, so he can't be anything below 5'11.5", and for me, looks what he claims; I.e. a flat 6" guy.

I wouldn't read too much into how people look next to door frames either, especially on a tv show with camera angles and everything, and they can vary so much that it's impossible to tell what size they are anyway. For instance, the door frames in my house are nearly 6'9", and at 5'8" I look like a bloody midget next to them at times; whereas my sister who stays just round the corner has door frames that's are only 6'6"/6'5".

Maybe the door frame he stood next to was a bigger than average one like mine?

He could always be a little shorter now though, he's in his early 50's after all, but I still think he's 6"ish or maybe just a fraction under.
Kal says on 4/Sep/12
Duchovny never really hit the six foot mark. The picture Vic posted is further proof of that. Next to Gallagher, he's only an inch taller and is leaning a little, so I put him at 5'10.5" probably 5'11.5" in his youth. Another sign of his real height, can be witnessed on the show Californiacation, in the 4th season, during the scene when he is about to leave for his trial and he's talking to Karen in the bathroom doorway. There is a shot where the camera comes back and the full doorway is in frame. Duchovny is considerably shorter than the doorframe. 5'10.5" watch that scene and think about changing it Rob.
Vic says on 1/Sep/12
Rob, I know photographs can be very deceptive but I'd be curious to have your opinion concerning this one:
Click Here
It seems both actors stand at the same distance from the camera and wear comparable footwears, postures alike and despite the slight tilt, it seems quite a good picture to get a rough idea of how tall Duchovny is, probably 3 inches taller than Peter Gallagher, so 6ft?
[Editor Rob: maybe a little difference on grass, can always add/take a cm but I think Duchovny when he did come out and say 6 foot or a little bit over is pretty much saying what he measured at.]
Maximus Meridius says on 28/Aug/12
Is 6ft 0in flat possible for him he is clearly a strong 6ft 0in guy he is nothing under that and nothing over that.
Vic says on 13/Aug/12
Good pic of Duchovny and Peter Gallagher listed 5'9" on this site
Click Here
It seems Duchovny looks 183-184 but not 185cm
what do you think Rob?
Felipe says on 8/Aug/12
On Opie and Anthony, when asked about his height he said "i'm only six feet"
[Editor Rob: a few months ago I finally saw the quote listed above where he says he's 6 feet and 'maybe a little taller', that's why he's listed a little above it - I think he usually just drops the fraction.]
CJS says on 7/Aug/12
I've met David several times - he's definitely over six feet - about 6'1" - all of it extremely HOT!
niconightmare says on 6/Aug/12
He is tiny in stature and I'd bet his hair is about 4 inches high, no kidding. 5' 10" would be possible but no taller.
BigT says on 27/Jul/12
183 cm is bang on.
Godred says on 10/Feb/12
6 ft exact
Hulk says on 7/Feb/12
There is a good point that David (aka Molder) is 6 ft. I mean, what kind of guy would downgrade his own height? If he says he's 6ft, then the most reasonable thing to suppose is that he isn't any taller. There is also a good point that he is not likely any shorter that 6 ft. That height seems pretty accurate.
Todd says on 6/Feb/12
Duchovny was on several episodes of "The Larry Sanders Show." In each one there are shots of him standing next to Garry Shandling (listed on this site at 5ft 10.5in). Duchovny looks no more than an inch taller than Shandler, so I have a hard time believing he's 6.25ft.
daggxsent says on 30/Jan/12
i know david duchovny, he is taller than he claim for himself, im 6'2, and stood many times next to him, he looks 6'1, about an inch shorter than me, maybe accurate will be 1.85 cm
leonari says on 26/Jan/12
Thats what a real 6 footer looks like on TV: Tall. Pitt never looks that tall even in his best lifts.
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 25/Jan/12
The Lopez video sealed his fate.
SIlent d says on 24/Jan/12
