Comment on the Height of Gerard Depardieu

Arch Stanton said on 2/Jan/16
He always had a bit of a hunch though Rob, walking around in films like Going Places and Loulou in the 70s he had that sort of hunched swagger.
Editor Rob: I forgot how many films he's been in.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jan/16
Rob can you update with a photo and add films Last Metro, Loulou, Jean de Florette, Going Places, The Woman Next Door, 1900, Unhook the Stars and 102 Dalmatians?

He could seem a good 2 inches taller than Robert De Niro in 1900.

Depardieau with 5'7"ish Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbn and 5'9"ish French footballer Michel Platini.

I think he needs some downgrading. Really lost a lot of height for his old days along with being in a very bad shape obviously.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Jan/14
Delon can actually look tallish though in Rocco and his Brothers next to a lot of the little Italian actors. He can look near 5'11 in shoes, so barefoot maybe your suggested 5' 9" (177cm) would be accurate, it's also listed at that on the database, perhaps it's official. I have a hard job believing he was over 5'10" though as I say, but he did look nearer 5'10" than 5'9" next to Lancaster.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Jan/14
Rocco and his Brothers is one I've been meaning to watch...
Arch Stanton said on 20/Jan/14
Actually Rob I think a full 5'10" peak would be OK. Lancaster only looked 2-3 inches taller in The Leopard Click Here and you can g image and Claudia Cardinale for recent pics, he looks a lot taller, she's lost quite a bit of height I think.

I can't remember how he fared next to Quinn in Lost Command. I'll try to see a few of Delon's films this week to help you out more.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/14
Pique looks more like Andy Sugden, albeit much taller and better looking! I spotted Depardieu in Life of Pi as the cook. It would take a brave man to stare out Depardieu! I wouldn't mess with him!
Sam said on 14/Jan/14
There's actually a bunch of pictures with Delon and I felt they look close in height. Depardieu might be slouchier and drop a little more but I'd be surprised if there was more than half an inch between them.

[Editor Rob: what about a 5ft 9.75 for Delon then, is that reasonable...]
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jan/14
I meant Andy Sugden. Just reminds me of him, doesn't really look like him though..
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jan/14
5'9.5 peak for Delon would be about right yeah.
Sam said on 8/Jan/14
Rob, might you add a page for Alain Delon?...I actually think he might be close to Depardieu in height, though he can look 5'9"-5'10" to others.
[Editor Rob: I'm thinking about it...177cm might be a good shout for him]
Jeff C said on 6/Jan/14
Mr Stanton, I enjoy reading your commments. Regarding Alain Delon in Purple Noon, is actually one of the few movies where he looks the shortest in my opinion. However, in Le Samourai directed by Meville he looks the tallest. When I was kid in Cuba in the late 70's I grew up watching his movies as well as Errol Flynn, I think Castro like Flynn because he was a supported of the cuban revolution during the beginning. He didnt see what was coming.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Jan/14
A young Depardieu actually looks a lot like Sam Dingle off Emmerdale!! He was never a "handsome" guy, but he was certainly fairly decent looking as a young guy and at least you could see why he attracted so many women. Today he's something of a caricature! I think 179cm would be spot on for peak.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jan/14
Yeah I'd say 5'10.5-75 looks right next to De Niro in 1900, although Depardieu's boots do look rather thick.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jan/14
He looks 1-2 inches taller than De Niro and about 5 inches shorter than Donald Sutherland in Novocento (1900). 5'10" range seems OK.

5'9.5" for Delon is OK but I doubt he was taller. Delon was sort of comparable as a young man to Zac Efron in terms of looks and a good looking guy but I wouldn't consider him "male perfection" or as good looking at you say ex. man.
Jeff C said on 2/Jan/14
He was In a movie called Two against the Law with Alain Delon and he was taller than him. I think Delon was 5'9.5 at the most, but he had the looks. said on 28/Dec/13
delon simply had the best male face structure and eyes ever. he was considered the best looking man in europe and he was a huge star. although nobody is sure of his height. he did look kind of tallish but he had a very slim body so who knows.i hope it will be added soon
Arch Stanton said on 25/Dec/13
@Pamela: You'd be surprised how many people in the UK and US have never even heard of Delon. I only know of him as I'm a film buff and have seen some of his films, I've never heard his name mentioned on TV or in magazines here! I'd guess he'd only be vaguely familiar to Rob. He is a huge personality in France and Italy though.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Dec/13
Yeah he does look hunched you're right, but facially he really is perfect casting for Cyrano de Bergerac, much more so than Jose Ferrer!
Arch Stanton said on 25/Dec/13
Rob, I think as is said below Alain Delon is definitely of similar status on the continent and should probably be listed here. You might remember him from Lost Command opposite Quinn, but he worked with some of the greatest directors Europe ever produced and some of his films like Purple Noon are considered masterpieces by the critics today. He was one of France's/Europe's biggest movie actors back in the 60s and 70s and had like a Brad Pitt-like status among women on the continent. I doubt he was a low as 5 ft 8, but thinking how he looked next to Lancaster and Cardinale in The Leopard I think 175-6cm would be a good shout. Can you add him some time in the New Year perhaps?
[Editor Rob: it's one name I kept meaning to but never seen much of him to really add, I might have a look next year]
Pamela Wells said on 31/Oct/13
Delon is, according to Richard Burton's diaries, about 5'8" tall. But who knows? You are right. Why Isn't such a male icon listed?
dmeyer181.2-183.8 said on 22/Jul/13
he is supose to have been 182cm as he was taller than 179cm belmondo said on 19/Jan/13
Rob, I am really interested in the height of french film star Alain Delon. I was surprised that such a male icon doesn't have a proper height listing on the internet.Could you please help me out?
Dmeyer said on 30/Oct/12
H is defenetly n taller than 177cm but at peak as tall as 180cm easy
LG69 said on 24/Aug/12
At his peak...looked 5'11" 5'9.5. Big framed guy.
Sam said on 10/Feb/12
He looked around 3 inches taller than Robert De Niro in 1900
jo said on 12/Sep/07
i saw depardieu and i can tell that he is 5 10
The Horse of FUNK said on 1/Aug/07
Also, 1492 is one of my favorite films, despite how unpopular it is, but while watching it, you can see Gerard doesn't measure up to Sigourney Weaver, in fact he appears about a half to full inch shorter than her, which would put him around at the 5'10.75" mark.
The Horse of FUNK said on 1/Aug/07
I disagree with Rut. I'm a strong 182cm and he doesn't seem it to me. He's my favorite European actor and he looks every bit of 5'10.75" (180cm). Now days, nearing 60 year of age, it's hard to tell, but he is probably closer to 5'10" now days.

So, my estimate would be 5'10.75" for most of his life and 5'10.25" or 5'10" flat now days.
dmeyer said on 5/Jun/07
can look 5'9.5 with sloush but aleast 5'10 and was 5'11 weird is that all people that meet heem say 6 ft plus that virgo girl mention 5'11 to 6 ft for him he can look 5'9ish in pics he was mesured 182 cm at 13 years old
dmeyer said on 1/Jan/07
maybe stood a lidl over 5'11 in his 20s in some french movie i have seen he looks near 6 feet
dmeyer said on 1/Nov/06
i think people loose height around 50 years old like 0.5 in to 1 inch and around 60 to 70 the can loose 2 in + like eastwood looked only 2 inches taller than me when i met him i have a friend who is 35 and told me he was mesured at 6 feet in his 20s for some reason he is a hair shorter than me at 180 to 181 range
Alex said on 16/Sep/06

dmeyer said on 3/Aug/06

Rob do you know in which movie he says 177cm?
Have a great 2006!

Rut said on 3/Dec/05
Raj, if you read this: in which movie did he say I'm 177 cm or does anybody know that movie..? personally I think in his heyday (and I read this from a book) he was 182 cm, also I think besides the later 177 cm claim he never personally stated his height.
rick said on 5/Aug/05
NO,NO,NO ! 177 cms is around 5'9 3/4" !!! 5'9" is exactly 175,26 cms.
virgo said on 17/Feb/05
i met Gerald in Atlantic City, NJ while he was filming 'Bogus' with Whoopi Goldberg (who i also met). i am fairly tall for a female, 6'0 (6'1 with shoes). when i spoke with him, i was practically eye level. his height, at the time (1995 or 96) was about 5 foot 11 inches to 6 foot. so unless some serious osteoporosis has set in within the last 9 years, he is still close to that height.
