I never doubted his claim. Legit 6'1 even today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/15
Might dip a fraction below 6ft1 in the evening.
Dejavu said on 8/Aug/15
I think he is more 184-185.
Tom said on 29/Jul/15

Saw him many times in the 00s. I'm 182 and he was taller. Big guy, bigger of what I thought. Same case with Kevin Costner who I thought was shorter.Also a classy discreet person Keanu is.
James B said on 12/Jun/15
Got keanu reeves looks but not his height :-(
Felix said on 27/May/15
Hey rob when you list actors' heights what would the range be like for example when you list keanu at 6'1" is he like 6'1.5 in the morning and about 6'0.75 at night or something like that.
[Editor Rob: at times I might think my guess is nearer than at other times. Typically I'm thinking of afternoon height, I think if you were to measure someone at 1pm at 6ft 1, some guys might hold it or be barely less at 7pm while others could shrink 1/4-1/3rd inch by evening.]
Patrick said on 23/May/15
In the Matrix lobby scene, he's wearing 1.5-2 inch heels (airwalk) boots. He's a 6 foot 1 guy, on the dot, 186cm.
Judd said on 22/May/15
i think he could be everywhere between 6'0.5" and 6'1"...i do not think he's a honest 6'1" but i think he's taller than a 6' flat.
miko said on 21/May/15
I'd like to see a staredown between him and Jim Carrey.
Nick said on 18/May/15
Keanu Reeves is exactly 6'1. Very tall guy.
Hypado said on 18/May/15
Keanu Reeves height is 6ft 0.5in (184 cm)
Andrea said on 17/May/15
So you think this is a 5 inches difference: Click Here
Keanu's got what? 6 inches eyelevel? And, even if Alfie was gaining some height with the famous "one leg" trick, i doubt that's more than half an inch!
[Editor Rob: it's more like 4 inch range]
Andrea said on 17/May/15
I must have forgotten the link: Click Here
Is he really standing on one leg? He seems quite "relaxed" to be fair... He doesn't seem a guy who is much height aware to me! And, even if he stood on one leg, i doubt he'd get 2-3 inches from that (he's easily above Keanu's eyebrows)! Are there other actors you've met who also met Keanu? I know he's been in a movie with Michael Rosenbaum and they didn't look much different (but the scenes weren't that good)....
[Editor Rob: it looks a funny stance with his leg...but Keanu can look nearer 6ft at times like there.]
Andrea said on 16/May/15
Rob, what's going on in this picture? He looks max 5'11 with Alfie Allen and Alfie seems to be standing even more relaxed than him!!! Also, Alfie looks more a weak 5'7 with you than a solid 5'7... So there are 2 big inches missing away in that picture?
[Editor Rob: there was no link, but I think the premier picture? I don't know, Alfie looks like he's standing on one leg, he does have boots on of some sort...maybe he's a bit more height aware!

to be fair he didn't seem that bothered about height when I seen him, he certainly looked a bit taller I felt than big G.]
Sam said on 15/May/15
Rob, could you add to his credits?: River's Edge, Dangerous Liaisons, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Point Break, My Own Private Idaho, Much Ado About Nothing and John Wick...not in his top 10, but I'm partial to I Love You to Death, where Willam Hurt & Reeves are surprisingly funny as the two borderline brain-dead wannabe hitmen.
hulk said on 25/Apr/15
looks 5'11/6ft next to Manny Pacquiao(5'6)
not sure about footwear
Josh said on 7/Apr/15
Real 6'0 man.
184.3cm said on 3/Apr/15
Region of 5'8-5'9 ?? Pass whatever your smoking. Listing is fine.
AlexMahone said on 3/Apr/15
Nick please...5'8? Laughable. If you are Viper I did'nt say anything because Viper has no...brain you know.

The fact is that Keanu is slightly shorter than Jon Hamm so either Hamm is taller than 185cm or Reeves shorter.

Click Here

Hamm is a little bit slocer to the camera but he stands in a relaxed posture.
Nick S said on 2/Apr/15
Not a chance he is 6ft. Standing next to Olly Murs 5ft 9, he was shorter but only by a bit so somewhere in the region of 5ft 8 to 5ft 9. All celbrities seem to want to add a few inches to their heights!

Russel Brand is 6ft 1 and towered over Keanu on the Jonathon Ross show recently
James B said on 25/Mar/15
I agree in Point Break he did seem more like 6'0 1/2 than a full 6'1
CDS said on 26/Feb/15
I think Frankie has Keanu pegged:

Strong 6ft seems like his real height in barefeet - strong 6'1 wearing shoes

I believe this only because for the longest time he was listed as 6' (back in the '80s and early '90s), and since he looked about the same as John Malkovich in "Dangerous Liasons" (who yes, claimed 6'1" for himself, but most put him in the 5'11"-6' territory), and more recently Reeves looked even with 6' Chris Evans in the film "Street Kings". I was actually kinda surprised since I would've put Evans more in the 5'11" range (maybe claims 6' in shoes??).
Hypado said on 26/Feb/15
6ft 0.5 in or 184,2 cm

is a better listing for Keanu Reeves.
S.J.H said on 23/Feb/15
6'0.75 for Keanu Reeves if to consider Denzel Washington was listed 182cm by rob. There are not over an inch between KR and DW
Tom said on 16/Feb/15
Always looks solid tall. Nothing below 6'0.5
184.3cm said on 10/Feb/15
As legit a 6'1 guy as you will get. I would give him 186cm as id bet he goes bed above the mark.
MD said on 8/Feb/15
Okay, this is getting kind of ridiculous. This guy is one of the few who is what he says he is. With 5'11" Eli Roth:

Click Here

He is nothing under his claim.
Bon_ said on 7/Feb/15
I think he's 185 cm flat, anywhere between 6'0.75 and 6'1.
Anon said on 6/Feb/15
In Devils Advocate, he was hardly taller than Theron. He is 5'11.5 barefoot, I reckon.
Ruffnecker said on 5/Feb/15
=======marcus says on 19/Jan/15
186cm, the guy looks taaaaaallll===========

I agree. He looks especially tall in Parenthood(1989),and he was 25 and done growing way by that point. 186-187 cm is spot on cause he really could've passed for 6'2" in this film for sure. As for now,nothing under 6'1". A tall 6'0 is actually laughable for him.
SAMMY DERRICK said on 4/Feb/15
Keanu Reeves (6'1)
marcus said on 19/Jan/15
186cm, the guy looks taaaaaallll
Judd said on 16/Jan/15
anything between 6'0.75" and 6'1"...in 2003 he hadn't no more than 0,5" on John Favreau (6'0.25-0.5")
Frankie said on 3/Jan/15
Strong 6ft seems like his real height in barefeet - strong 6'1 wearing shoes
Joe said on 1/Dec/14
Keanu is really 6'0.5" barefoot and 6'1" or more in shoes. He is a tall guy for sure.
A6'1Guy said on 12/Nov/14
@Average joe, he is slightly further back than him and his head is also facing down, please consider this. Please also consider that height varies throughout the day and Jenson may have got up later than Keanu making seem taller, Keanu might have gotten up earlier in the day, so this picture is not very accurate, as well we can not see the foot wear, there are many things to consider here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Nov/14
In Point Break he looked a bit under 6ft1, though.
Heylo said on 8/Nov/14
ali, Stupid comment. What are you basing your statement on? He is definitely not 5'11. He is a legit 6'1 or at least was in his prime.
ali said on 3/Nov/14
180cm max. Tall for an actor. 6'1 in his dreams. Standard hollywood height= real height +2 inches.
hal said on 1/Nov/14
He was definitely a strong 6'1" in his prime, but he's 50 now, so I'd guess he's currently 6'0.75" more or less.
max said on 25/Oct/14
Rob i reaaaally think this guy is a solid 186cm, he really looks that height.
177cmGuy said on 18/Oct/14
He's always looked tall to me in his films not just above average. In the matrix films he looked 186cm and stood well amongst tall guys like Lawrence Fishburne and Hugo Weaving. As a good guess he won't be anything under a weak 6'1. Recently he's packed some good pounds he's probably over 200 now.
Judd said on 12/Oct/14
I think he would measure 185 at night so 6'0.75" and 6'1" are both true
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Oct/14
Yeah, he did look around 6ft1-6ft2 next to Jeff Daniels
mike said on 2/Oct/14
Looked 186-187 in Speed. I wouldn't put him less than 6ft 1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/14
"Keanu Reeves height: 6ft 0žin (185cm)"
184.9 on a bad day said on 25/Aug/14
face to face with Terry Crews. 6ft 1 is legit
Sam said on 13/Aug/14
I think he's one of the few leading men claiming 6'1" who is legtimately at that mark.
cole said on 11/Aug/14
6'1 is a good shout. Maybe he'd measure a hair under, but he often looks more than just 6ft flat.
James B said on 25/Jul/14
Didn't really look 6'1 in point break or the devils advocate
Jess said on 22/Jul/14
Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu is 6ft so Keanu is easily 6'1. Besides he looks it too
Kiki said on 1/Jul/14
What happened to vincent klyn? When did he have an accident??
Chris said on 27/Jun/14
i am 6'4 ft and i met him, he's 6'1 indeed, 6 ft claims are a joke btw
Hypado said on 26/Jun/14
Keanu Reeves, 6ft 0.5 (184 cm) I think is spot on.
mike said on 6/Jun/14
6ft 0.75 night 6ft 1.5 morning.
Dave said on 17/May/14
In Point Break where he is threatened at the shower area he stands beside Vincent Klyn who is listed at 6-2 and is probably every bit of that he looks to be 1" shorter or there abouts so id guess he is in the 6-1 range. Vincent .klyn however is looking frail and atrophied these days i think he has been in an accident or something
185.95 cm at night said on 29/Apr/14
i watched him on Jimmy fallon Show , towards the en of the Show both keanu and Jimmy stands up to do a demonstration ..at to me at some point Jimmy looked even taller than keanu and he's listed 5' 11˝" here..maybe a downgrade for keanu should be considered
exe said on 28/Apr/14
Shalom B'shem Yeshua says on 11/Mar/14
No way is he 6ft 1. Here is a photo stood next to Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu who is listed at 5ft 10.

you are dead wrong. netanyahu is no where near 5"10. not even 5"8. i'v seen that most of the guesses in this site are basicly wrong. this people look a lot taller on tv and you think they are taller than they realy are. i met a few movie stars in real life and one thing they all had in common - they where all shorter than on the screen. tv makes you taller.
Elias said on 16/Apr/14
he is a strong 6ft 1
185-186 cm
Dejavu said on 16/Apr/14
I think he is more 184cm than a legit 6'1. He can look 1.5 inches shorter than legit 6'2 guys like Morgan freeman and Hugo weaving
Ted said on 13/Apr/14
6'0" at absolute most.

Check out photos of him and 5'6" Rachel Weisz at the Constantine premiere... Reeves is about 4.5" taller in any fair photo. Add in 1.5" of standard high heels vs standard dress shoes height diff, and Bob's your uncle.
coal said on 25/Mar/14
I met him years ago at a club we were playing ( He came into the green room). I'm 6ft 1.5 and I thought we were the exact same height, but my friends said I was about half an inch or so taller than him.
dejavu said on 21/Mar/14
He can look anywhere from 1.5-2 inches shorter than Hugo Weaving. I think he is more 184cm.
James B said on 17/Mar/14
In some photos he looks a strong 6ft1 like 186cm
Shalom B'shem Yeshua said on 11/Mar/14

Could be 6ft0.75/185cm at worst but looks an honest 6ft1 mostly
nick kanellakis said on 25/Jan/14
I think Keanu reeves is 6''0.25 exately some say 6'1 I think just 6ft he wears proper foot wear in speed and the matrix slightly wears high boots for rule that make him 185 cm.
NoobSaibot said on 19/Jan/14
6'1 in any shoe, 6ft in barefeet
tom said on 7/Jan/14
185 6'1"
Geny said on 29/Dec/13
He looks tall maybe five foot and eleven inches.
M said on 3/Dec/13
Pretty sure I walked past him around noon today in Tribeca. Didn't recognize him at first because of his hair/beard (lol) but I feel confident after checking his recent pics. Anyway, I'm 6-1 and he was roughly my height.
Pleb said on 23/Nov/13
He can look anywhere from 181cm-184cm standing next to a 188cm Hugo Weaving.
Silent d said on 29/Oct/13
Solid 6 foot 1.
afka said on 8/Oct/13
honestly tall man.6'1 is true
cat said on 6/Oct/13
Thank god Keanu is 6' tall. I cannot get into guys who are shorter, and isn't that why we go to the movies in the first place?
Connor 184cm said on 2/Oct/13
Rob here is the mugshot of keenu and it says he is 6ft Click Here he is shorter than John C McGinley who looks 6ft 1 so are you considering downgrading him to at least 184cm?
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure, sometimes the person doesn't ask a height but guesses, he could have looked 6ft to the person writing the information down on his record]
Connor 184cm said on 2/Oct/13
6 foot could also be possible for Keanu there was a mugshot of him where it suggests he could be that mark but 5ft 11.75 is too low. 183-184 is very likely
Connor 184cm said on 30/Sep/13
Rob Keanu has a 1/2 an inch on 6ft Gary Busey in Point break so that makes him 6ft 0.5 so hes not quite a legit 6ft 1 might be a strong 184cm may be nearly 6ft 0.75.
Connor 184cm said on 30/Sep/13
He looked 184cm in Point break i can buy weak 6ft 1 for Keanu.
Connor 184cm said on 28/Sep/13
keanu looks 6ft-6ft 1/2 in this pic not quite 6ft 1 might pull it off with his hairstyle though
Dejavu said on 28/Aug/13
Maybe 184cm?
juju said on 27/Aug/13
Mugshot said he was 6 feet. Also same height as 6 feet gary busey in point break
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 25/Aug/13
5'11.75", 182-183cm. Weak 6'.
Len said on 6/Aug/13
He looks 6'0" in most everything.
Kyuss said on 2/Aug/13
6-0 or 6-0.5 max.
Corky said on 20/Jul/13
You know, uh, I'd say he could be 6 one.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/13
In Point Break
Keanu Reeves 6ft0.5in/184cm
Patrick Swayze 5ft11in/180cm
John C. McGinley 6ft1.5in/187cm
Gary Busey 5ft11.75in/182cm
fred said on 9/Jun/13
His Arrest sheet lists him as 6'00. This was in 1993 and I doubt that he has grown since then.
joak said on 10/May/13
currently watching Street Kings. i don't know about the shoes, but Chris Evans looks slightly taller than Keanu Reeves so either Evans is taller than his listed height or Reeves needs a serious downgrade..
me said on 6/May/13
help how do you know if somebody is wearing lifts??
Lenad is sexy said on 3/May/13
Reeves looks like a weak 6ft1 to me

Carlo said on 29/Apr/13
brown in that video i can say that he looks like 186 188 but look at his monsters shoes i looked up information about that explorer next to him and that truck is 188cm best way too guees height watch the cars

i think hes barefoot solid 6ft
Average Joe said on 6/Apr/13
Starting to suspect Keanu sports lifts. Click Here

He is always in 1.5 inchers wherever he goes.
Brown said on 3/Apr/13
in this video hes wearing some big shoes (he would be like 6'3) that means the girl is like 6'0 which is VERY improvable. Then when he gets to his car he looks 6'0 WITH THOSE SHOES. Click Here
Mark said on 1/Apr/13
im 5'11.5, he is taller than me for sure. atleast 6'1
Josh said on 28/Mar/13
5'11.5 (182cm)
danny said on 25/Mar/13
Keanu Reeves is a tall guy i think its true.
Average Joe said on 23/Mar/13
Inside the ideal height range, my bet would be around 5'11.5 - 6'.
Click Here

Around the same height as a supposedly 182cm Jenson Button.
vik said on 14/Mar/13
people how can u be sure that he wears lifts? the guy is tall 6ft1
said on 2/Mar/13
I am 1.85cm tall and was queuing next to him at SFO.. Keanu is a solid 6'1"
Yv said on 26/Feb/13
BigT , in his movie Young Again back to 1986 he claims he's 6'1. He was never listed as 6'0
XistenZ said on 26/Feb/13
Danilo018@

Assuming that's Street Kings. Chris Evans looked taller than Keanu at times. Go figure.
Danilo018 said on 26/Feb/13
I watched some movie with him last night. Supporting actors were also Tery Crews, Forest Whitaker and dr. House. Belive it or not Kianu was taller than both Crews and Whitaker. Going by his height Crew's and Whitaker's height needs to be downgraded. Rob I would like to hear your opinion.
Yana said on 8/Feb/13
186- 188 cm

In the kinda tall range 5'10"-6'0 range no probs...u may think more but

6 foot 1. We'll see when he goes on craig ferguson. Craig is at least 6 foot 1. Keanu always looked tall to me. I'm back!
Jack said on 28/Sep/12
He's somewhere between 184-187 cm range..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
Between 6ft1-6ft2 in Speed opposite Jeff Daniels but it may have been the shoes he was wearing. Looked fairly tall in Feeling Minnesota aswell. About 6in taller than Cameron Diaz.
Johnnyfive said on 13/Sep/12
I thought he'd be taller for some reason. He always looks close to 6'2 on his films. I guess this height suits him right.
me said on 28/Aug/12
his mugshot has him as 6ft
bodwaya said on 7/Aug/12
In dangerous liasons he was eye level with 6 foot 1 john malcavge . His does look 6 foot 1
Chameleon said on 2/Aug/12
I uploaded a pic from a movie where he is barefoot with Charlize Theron who 177cm and he looks 182cm

Click Here
Chameleon said on 26/Jul/12
Agree'd BigT, he is 182cm.
BigT said on 25/Jul/12
He was listed at 183 cm back in the day, before his breakthrough in Hollywood, then, obviously he has been listed taller after that. I would like to see a percentage of the amount of height-listings that are 100% accurate, and I would bet big money that most of the height-listings would be off by at least 3-5 cm. Keanu is no more than 183 cm barefoot, probably even as low as 182 cm.
muzammil frm india said on 8/Feb/12
He is so smart i think his height is 6ft 2inch probably . . . .
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 6/Feb/12
I agree with Steven, 182cm is bang on for this guy.
Silent d said on 6/Feb/12
Please don't say keanu is 6 foot! Oh no jim carrey debate again. He is clearly 185cm. End of story!
RICHARD said on 31/Jan/12
Looked every bit of 6'1" next to Kevin Kline,William Hurt,and River Phoenix in I Love You to Death(1990),though in Speed he did look close to 6'2" next to Jeff Daniels,who is closer to Hurt's height,and towered over Dennis Hopper,too.

Here's my estimations for these guys he's stood next to...no lifts,heels,big shoes,etc....he clearly edges some out by inches

Keanu Reeves-6'1"
Kevin Kline-6'1"
William Hurt-6'2"
River Phoenix-5'11"
Jeff Daniels-6'3"
Hugo Weaving-6'2"
Laurence Fishburne-5'11"
Gary Busey-6'0"
Dennis Hopper-5'9"
Morgan Freeman-6'2"
Steve Martin-5'11"
