Comment on the Height of Keanu Reeves

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/15
He at least looks 200lbs today
Jordan C said on 11/Nov/15
Met him in Toronto a couple years ago, looked 6'1.25 maybe even a half so i would guess him at 186 cm. Young looking guy
Melanie said on 9/Nov/15
Keanu looks very tall due to his very slim build-long limbs etc!
Thomas6ft1 said on 27/Oct/15
Keanu is a solid 6'1" guy. He's looks tall in every movie he's been. He doesn't look shorter than Jeff Daniels or Hugo Weaving. He also has the proportions of someone who is legitimately over 6 feet. The worst and least you could argue for him is 6'0.5". Anything under is ridiculous.
Jame said on 26/Oct/15
his height is least 185 cm. I think probably 185-186
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/15
I think he hovers around 185cm.
Dejavu said on 24/Oct/15
I think 185 max. He looked more than an inch shorter than Hugo Weaving at times.
Gonzalo said on 16/Oct/15
He looks like a legit 1`85 guy
grizz said on 15/Oct/15
@Clinton, sure, grade tallness based on what's it like in the tallest nation in the world, whereas average height in the USA is 5'9.5 -yeah, he's tall.
Hypado said on 14/Oct/15
Keanu Reeves Height is 6ft 0.25in (184 cm)

A strong 6 footer guy and noghint more. 185 is a joke.
dmeyer said on 14/Oct/15
To me he looks 6'0.5-1in not more or less 184-185.5cm
Clinton said on 13/Oct/15
@kon 185 is not very tall am 184 and dats the average height of Dutch males. I get to see people around my height and Taller than me on daily basis, makes me wish I was 2 inches Taller,but I get to like my height most times.
dog said on 13/Oct/15
long, lean 6ft1
So said on 9/Oct/15
He looks 6'1.25 and sometimes 6'1.5.
184.3cm (Night) said on 1/Oct/15
Nick Nolte wasnt in Point Break, that was Gary Busey who was a legit 6 footer and he was marginally shorter in every single scene. Swayze had big hair and was still shorter than him. He is easily taller than 5'11 guys the lowest you could go is 184cm for him.
grizz said on 29/Sep/15
@Kon, magic of the camera. Nobody wants to look short on big film.
In movie "Hero" with Dustin Hoffman and Geena Davis, you never see them together standing next to one another (although they were main characters!). Kiefer Sutherland was pissed at Freddie Prinze Jr. during "24" for being much taller on screen than he - he had to be barefoot or stand behind him to satisfy his ego.
Kingpindom said on 17/Sep/15
Exactly 185 cm . this guy has a good shape of 185 cm.
Kon said on 12/Sep/15
In Point break everybody is taller than him. Nick Nolte is the same height or even a bit taller. His FBI chief is the same height. Patrick Swayze looks the same height (scene when they walk arter fighting on the beach). In real life 185 cm man looks really tall, what cannot be said about Keanu in Point break. I think he is 181 barefoot and can look 185-186 depending on shoes.
kevin said on 8/Sep/15
well next to eli roth in new pics he doesnt look to hve 2 inches on him
grizz said on 25/Aug/15
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
186 morning height..184 day height for Keanu
A said on 22/Jul/15
Fairly taller then Denzel. 186 at least.

hijopotamus said on 12/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" 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 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

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

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

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 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"

He's 6'0 maybe 6'0.5 at most
asakacacadookie said on 21/Sep/07
Well, I took a photo of me standing side by side with a cardboard cutout of Keanu, and it was about an inch taller than me (I'm 6ft), so I guess that makes him 6ft1. I lost this photo by the way :(
dmeyer said on 19/Sep/07
apears 6'1 on many accasion but he sure didnt have 3 in on theron so either he is 6'0.25 and she is a bit over 5'10 but realy dont seem a full 6'1 by her also he can look 6'0.75 by hugo he could be 6'0.5 and wears big shoes
RobertJ said on 18/Sep/07
5'6''!!?? That's a good one. Your friend was mistaken. Anything below 6 feet for Keanu is absurd. And limb lengthening only gets your 2-3 inches.
Andy said on 13/Sep/07
I thought the same,but like I said my friend auditioned him for a part.I&ve never met the guy myself so I can't say !Have you?
TJ said on 11/Sep/07
Andy, Reeves was already very well known in the early 90s. Bill and Ted came out in 1989, as did Parenthood. He was in the very popular Point Break in 1991. His height in all three is well established, so talk of 5'6 in the early 90s is absurd.
Helen said on 10/Sep/07
Jeez, andy, do you even know who Keanu Reeves is?
Andy said on 10/Sep/07
This is definitely going to get me flamed but.... My friend is a film producer and auditioned Reeves for a part back in the early 90's before he became better known. He swears to me at that time Reeves was the same height as him. My friend is 5'6.I said to him that he must be mistaking him for another actor, but he was adamant. Limb lengthening surgery??

Patrick said on 25/Aug/07
You all talk nonsense. Jesus christ, he is a legitimate 6'1". Fishburne is bang on 6'0" and Keanu is 6'1". 183 cm = 6'0" / 185 cm = 6'1". Keanu is one of those guys who has an Ectomorphic body, meaning he has long limbs. Fishburne is a solid 6 footer with a more Mesomorphic body (average height with muscle).
glenn said on 8/Aug/07
thanks robertj.forgot about those.
Brakno said on 7/Aug/07
yeah,closer to 184 sound right
James said on 4/Aug/07
I think 6ft1 could be rounded up a bit I think 184cm is closer. Do you agree Editor Rob. I mean Keanue has never really looked quite a full 6ft1 in his films esspecially in Point Break where he looks simialr in height to Gary Busey who is 182cm to 183cm.

Oh yeah on a side note Editor Rob how do you create links under the comments you submit on this site to show a photo of a celebritie compared to other stars in terms on how tall they look?
Jen said on 1/Aug/07
Keanu is working on a film called The Night Watchman with Forest Whitaker.
RobertJ said on 1/Aug/07
Glenn - Keanu is still doing well. His two films Constantine and lake house did fairly well at the box office.
JanJ said on 31/Jul/07
He is Point Break he's defenitely 1.5 inches taller than 5'11.5-6ft gary busey
glenn said on 23/Jul/07
anxiety and depression from parents deaths.natural deaths,but losing my mother at 15 doesnt help.and another over it is great :-) keanu had it worst in the situatins,but i never heard of him having anxiety disorder and hiding in from the public.then again,where did his career go? is he working?
Jos said on 23/Jul/07
in which way better?
what happened to you,if it's not too private
glenn said on 22/Jul/07
i heard.i know pain too.maybe not his pain.but i dont think he snapped as bad as i did.his body handled it better.
Jos said on 20/Jul/07
he lost his best friend,wife and unborn child in a pretty short period of time.that's a good reason for depression.
glenn said on 18/Jul/07
true james.
James said on 17/Jul/07
Glenn that would explain why he harldy ever smiles at premier of in his film
glenn said on 15/Jul/07
not too friendly.didnt speak a word.i heard he suffers from i cant put him down.
mofo said on 14/Jul/07
Glenn is he a nice person to meet or is he moody because in that pic above he looks miserable as sin!
Would'nt hurt the guy to smile!
ryan said on 6/Jul/07
Glenn is gold!
Josh said on 23/Jun/07
He looks a solid 6'0 probably a bit over that but 6'1 not sure.
Anonymous said on 30/May/07
Yeah I know jos, but I want to know YOUR proportions (shoe size/pant length/waste size/hand size/shirt size) because I am interested in how they relate to height
Jos said on 27/May/07
no i mean he's like me in build,he reminds me a lot at this pic especially when i stand in front of the mirror
Anonymous said on 26/May/07
Jos, can you please tell me your shoe size/pant length/waste size/hand size/shirt size. Im interested to know the proportions and how they relate to height
Jos said on 23/May/07
He's prettmy much like me in build,and it seems to me me in proportions and height,when i go in foront of the 185 would be right,but not more,maybe at night downgrades to 184
TheJerk said on 15/May/07
I thought JL that you said you were 5-6. Did you grow recently or were you wearing lifts?
Perry said on 10/May/07
it's 185 flat i think,but 185(184,5)i think is put at 6-1,if not then 184,7-184,8
Cinzane said on 9/May/07
how much exactly is 6ft1 in cm?i think i saw on the meter 185,2
Anonymous said on 29/Apr/07
JL where were you when you saw him?
JL said on 24/Apr/07
stood right next to him a couple days ago ... im 6'1" and so is he. end of discussion ... next.
Mace said on 22/Apr/07
I agree,he's a six footer,with shoes probably 6-1
Stino said on 21/Apr/07
I saw him once at HBoulevard i was leaving the store while he was passing by,and he was at his full height-i am 6-1.25,so i guess he's 183-184.
Jada said on 10/Apr/07
I stood beside Keanu I was only on his shoulder length and my Height is 5'1 he's 1 foot taller than me. We were both wearing flat shoes about half inch in height so that made Keanu look 6'1 1/2 and I look 5'1 1/2
Ralph said on 8/Apr/07
Hey,take it easy.He is a great person,it's widely known,but here we are discussing heights.Probably Bernie is offended because some messages here may contain some negatice context about Keanu,and he's the last to deserve it.
My pin-a solid six footer
Berni said on 8/Apr/07
Well leonari if my comment disturbs you that much, next time I have the pleasure of speaking to him, I'll ask him how tall he is and report back to you so you can have it straight from the horses's mouth. Would that make you feel better? I hope so because God knows the last thing I want to do is ruin anyone's day.
leonari said on 8/Apr/07
Berni: Are you aware what you are writing? This is a HEIGHTS page!! Not a f********* Keanu forum. Sure he may be a very decent guy and I'm sure there are hunderds of sites where you can discuss this. But we on this site are here to discuss the heights of celebrities and not if they are good or bad people. Why is that so hard to grasp man!!????? anoying to say the least.
Berni said on 7/Apr/07
Does it really matter how tall he is? What matters is how great he is as a human being. I've met him and spoken to him when he was with the band Becky and he is a great person through and through. That is all that matters to me.
grandmakod said on 7/Apr/07
yeah, he was certainly taller than Dennis Hopper in Speed, after "howard" lost his head!
Robbiatti said on 31/Mar/07
No,i would say 184 then.And Keanu may exactly be that height.
crisanto said on 30/Mar/07
you always make a lot of fuss over 1/2 of an inch. if somebody asked how tall you are, would you say, "im six feet and a half inches" isn't that a bit pathetic? pardon my english.
G-unit said on 17/Mar/07
he looks tall, I'd say at least 6'1
Viper said on 10/Mar/07
He can look either height at times. Who knows, he might be 6-0 1/2.
Perry said on 9/Mar/07
i think he's a solid six footer.and it makes ME laugh to see someone say he might be even 186.
Johnny Mnemonic said on 2/Mar/07
here he looks a very trong 6-1,i can't dispuite that
Click Here
eva said on 2/Mar/07
He is exactly 6'1'' and wearing shoes might look 6'1'' 1/2
He hunches. And I know it ;-)
Evanna said on 28/Feb/07
That was not Nick Nolte but Gary Busey (yes, they are lookalikes and around the same height, 6ft). Anyway, Keanu did have an inch on Busey and at least four inches on Swayze, so Rob's got his height right, as always.
morris said on 26/Feb/07
This makes me laugh reading these comments.I watched Point Break last night where he stars opposite Nick Nolte who is 6ft and no one disputes that here on celeb heights. Keanu definetely looks one inch taller than Nolte he's 185 no doubt.
Johnny Mnemonic said on 18/Feb/07
I think he's 100% not 6-1,or 185.thing is,he has a good posture,at least in film it seems like that,and he's well,strong built.i have the same 'problem'-i have similar build to keanu reeves,and when people are asked,they give me 185,but i'm 'just'6,maybe 6 and half inch,but due to good posture ang good build...i seem taller maybe.although,i'm just gonna turn 18,so i epect to be real 6'1" at friend also-he's 183-184,but people don't wonder if said he's 187-188.
so,i think keanu is 'just' 6.i can buy 184 also.
people forget-six foot is the 'limit' of tallness,not 6-1 or 185,but real 6-1,the thing is everybody lies a little about his their height.and keanu definitively looks tall.but i wouldn't say,he's 6-1 flat barefooted,for sure.
Flavio said on 12/Feb/07
He's six footer,maybe 6 and 0.5
Glenn said on 7/Feb/07
I agree.
6'2.5'' JK said on 6/Feb/07
He always looked pretty Tall to me, I'd give him a very strong 6'1'' and the picture with 5'8'' Glenn proves it..
Ralph said on 5/Feb/07
with shoes,definitely...i think we could believe himself as he says he's 6'
Thomas said on 5/Feb/07
He is 6'1 for sure, if not more. Look at his build, and this guy has always looked tall. I think he is probably 185 on the dot, perhaps even 186
Ralph said on 4/Feb/07
btw franco,this 2cm+,you mean for shoes?
then it's ok
Jimbo said on 2/Feb/07
No way he's taller.I looked at some pictures of his and based on that he's 183-184,on some of them looks maybe 185...don't know,in walk in the clouds he does appear somewhat 185,but then,in 'private idaho' and 'sweet november',he appears as just a solid 6 footer.and he also said himself he's just 6'.And maybe that's the truth,though i can buy 185 barefooted in the morning.
Gonzalo said on 2/Feb/07
He looks 6`1. But I think he looked taller than Kevin Kline and William Hurt in I love you to death, or maybe I don`t remember properly. Could he be taller than 6`1?
Ralph said on 1/Feb/07
I think we can all agree that he is about 184 cm.I can't see him as strong 6'1" and also 183 is maybe a bit short for him
Shelley said on 17/Jan/07
I stood behind him in line and he's atleast 6'1 if not 6'2. I was surprised at how lanky he was.
Jemes said on 29/Dec/06
Keanu is definitively not over 6,i assure you.i think he's 180,my mother told me he's no way taller than 178.
tllgrrl said on 26/Dec/06
I stood behind him in a line at an event. I'm about6'2" in running shoes.
His shoulder height was just above mine about a 1/4-1/2".
He's 6'1" - 6'2".
RobertJ said on 20/Dec/06
Interesting GHK but there's no way he's less than 6 feet.
GHK said on 12/Dec/06
I saw Reeves in the Silver Sun a convenience liquor store in Silver Lake earlier this year. I'm exactly 6'5"--I'd guess he is no more than 5'10"
irshgrl500 said on 5/Dec/06
I always thought Reeves was under 6' but in the photo with Bratt, he does appear to be only about an inch shorter than 6'2" Bratt.
Anthony said on 29/Nov/06
Keanu always looke 6'1 to me. I can buy 6' flat without shoes, though.
Glenn said on 19/Nov/06
Seemed 6-1 to me.
Viper652 said on 17/Nov/06
6-0 is probably more realistic for him.
Brad said on 16/Nov/06
6' with his band a few years ago.
Franco said on 16/Nov/06
Keanu looks like a bankrupcy man waiting to die WTF, weird face in the pic.

hmmm id say 1.83cm too from personal experience since i saw him 4 years ago in Italy.
kenneth said on 13/Sep/06
no way hes 185.. saw a pic of 180 brad pitt standing next to him looks 2,3cm diffrent.. and remember a pic of him stand beside 171tom criuse looks 12cm taller..(eye level)while tom stand next to him.. i'll gave keanu reeve just a good 183(6ft)..
Lmeister said on 23/Aug/06
Keanu looks more like 6 ft. than 6'1''...
dmeyer said on 10/Aug/06
for exemple keanu looked closer to freeman height than pitt or bale so he must be over 6 foot like 185
dmeyer said on 2/Jul/06
i met his stand in who stands a strong 6'2" and told me keanu is 6'1"
Mr. R said on 25/Jun/06
I saw Keanu last week at the theater. Unfirtunately he sat down before I had a chance to pull out my tape measure. It is still strange however to see someone in a suit and motorcycle boots!
Frank2 said on 29/Apr/06
Back in 1999 Keanu was arrested in Los Angeles for driving under the influence. I doubt it was the influence of anyone who attended the Actor's Studio.

You'd be surprised how many of Hollywood's rich and famous have to attend meetings of Alcoholic's Anonymous. I have a friend who had a serious cocaine addiction and was forced to go to rehab and then attend AA meetings. I decided to accompany him to a meeting since at the time he didn't have a driver's license and needed a ride. At that meeting were at least five big name celebrities. And lots and lots of incredible looking women! If I was only single.......
D. Ray Morton said on 29/Apr/06
"For what it's worth, Keanu's mug shot lists his height as being 6' even along with his weight being 170 lbs."

What was he arrested for? (His acting, I hope.)
Viper652 said on 28/Apr/06
Its possible that Keanu might be 6-0, and 6-1 in his shoes. Just calls his in shoe height as the official listed height.
Ujane, Moscow said on 23/Apr/06
Have you ever noticed his "dress-shoes" in Matrix?)))) Guess it has about 5cm heels, - true 6ft 1in cowboy...with shoes!))))))))
Clyde said on 18/Apr/06
I'm not too sure about this one...In Point Break,Keanu & Swayze were both barefooted in the scene where they were walking back to the car....they were
also on pavement...Keanu did'nt look more then an inch taller than swayze,& people say Swayze is 5'10...Also in the same scene,if you notice how the ground level is,Keanu is walking on the higher side of the pavement...I would say Keanu is around 6'0 barefooted...
Janice said on 2/Apr/06
I've met him close up, and in person. I am a girl, and am 5'9" stocking feet. I was wearing a 2inch heel at least, and was still looking up. He's 6'1 at LEAST.
sgt. pepper said on 30/Mar/06
A friend and I were in a bar in Los Feliz after the Matrix came out, and Keanu walked in wearing a grey suit and knit cap. My friend's a solid 6'2", and Keanu was at least that, if not taller. One of my best friends in the world is 6'4" and awkward, so I know what that looks like.
Frank2 said on 3/Mar/06
Keanu is six-one. He and Tony Quinn were about the same height in A Walk in the Clouds. Quinn was a solid six-one and for some reason never got much shorter as he got older.
kenshin said on 1/Mar/06
If u look at that deleted scene in constantine the 5'8 line mark is by his eyeline so i guess his forehead is a little bigger than some other people.
Xhavier said on 25/Feb/06
The difference between Glenn and Keanu in that picture is 3" for a fact, and no more than 4". I would say 3" exactly. the middle of Glenn's eye is at the middle of Mr. Reeves mouth. From the mouth to the middle of the eye, is usually 3" on almost everyone. Therefore Keanu Reeves, is 5'11".

[Editor Rob: there is, I think, a tilt in the picture - look at the line behind glenn and his stance, so the camera is maybe tilting slightly in glenn's favour?]
Sarah said on 30/Jan/06
Keanu has always looked 6'1'' to me, maybe a bit more.
316 said on 23/Jan/06
Cannot agree more with J-Dog. Herz a celebrity like Keanu Reeves who looks tall in nearly every movie and paparazzi photos of his, and he gets accused of wearing magic boots. Guys, common, this elevator shoes thing is getting very repetitive, save it for ppl who actually use it.
J-Dog said on 19/Jan/06
Glenn, I not only agree with you, I thank you for posting true photographs with you and the celebrities. I have too noticed that there is a huge envious and naturalistic tendency for people here to try to downgrade celebrities. I think that is just as worst as trying to boost someone's height. I often hear claims that everyone must be wearing secret footwear, even guys who clearly don't need it.

So Keanu a guy who by his own attested personality couldn't care about lying about his height, is really only 5'11" and wears 2" heals at all times? Hahahaha! You have someone take 10,000 plus photos and some you will look bigger and smaller. Keanu has never looked 5'11".

Glenn your contributiions kick ass man, keep it up.
dmeyer said on 15/Jan/06
6'1" looks corect
Mario said on 13/Jan/06
5 ft 11?!?!? The guys who still think that live in Wonderland.
Brett said on 9/Jan/06
its quite obvious Keanu is atleast 6'1", when he goes on Letterman hes basically as tall as Dave, and Glenns pic definitely backs this up
Kenshin said on 7/Jan/06
i'm preety sure their not shoter than wat they say cuz all of us had our heights checked by the doctor. Proabably ur right my head could be shorter than the avg.
Buster said on 7/Jan/06
I suggest that either your mother and sister stand higher on you than you think (e.g your sister comes up to the bottom of your nose and your mother comes up to the top of your nose) OR that they're shorter than the 'heights' they say (or you think) they are.

Perhaps a little from column a) and a little from column b) ... and maybe your head is an inch smaller than the average?
kenshin said on 6/Jan/06
i'm really confused cuz my sis is 6 1'2 inch shorter than me she comes up to my chin and my mom is exactly 5 inches shorter than me and she comes below my nose.
elio said on 5/Jan/06
typically, from the top of the head downwards :

6" is usually mid-way on someone's nose.
7" is usually around the bottom of the nose.
8" is usually around the mouth
the bottom of the chin is around 9 1/2" inches.

A lot of it really depends on the person. However only very small children have a 5" inch gap from the top of their head to below the nose. Get a tapemeasure and a mirror and you'll see what I mean.

Another way to look at it is that an average 6 foot man is about '7 1/2' heads tall.

72 inches / 9 1/2 inches = 7.58 heads tall.
kenshin said on 4/Jan/06
where would a person be if he's 6 inch shorter than him? cuz i thought 5 inch diff would be below the nose.
CoolJ said on 2/Jan/06
I think he's about 6' - 6'0.5.. The police sheet I linked before had him at 6'... although Keanu does have a long head.

I can buy 184cm.

I think the average hairline to eye-level measurement is about 4" or so.
elio said on 1/Jan/06
Looks a definate 6'1" to me.

Glenn seems to be around his eyeline.

5'8" + ~5" = ~6'1"
nj said on 1/Jan/06
He's almost a head taller than Sandra Bullock (5'7.5') in Speed. Just over 6 feet sounds right.
Stiffelio said on 1/Jan/06
In the picture the heights difference seem about 5in (12.5cm), so if Glenn is 5ft 8" Keanu Reeves is 6ft 1", if "shoes paribus"
TheMan said on 1/Jan/06
He's 6,0 i belivie 6,1 is a bit to tall for him i think.
175cm16andgrowing said on 1/Jan/06
I don't think Keanu is 5'11'' and I don't think he's 6'2'', I think he's like Christian BAle. Both are sometimes listed at 6'2'' - but both have said they are "just" 6'. And Keanu is said to weigh 175lbs (less in Matrix, more in bhis football movie... I think 192 or something in the football movie and 169 in Matrix) and that looks about correct for him. He said he's 6' but he can also be 6'1''.
Glenn said on 1/Jan/06
why dont you look at the other photos I put up before making a statement of photoshop.who am I? one of the top 10 autograph dealers in the world.I started out as a photographer in 1990.then went to the more lucrative(as least for me,cause Im not aggresive in taking photos and harrasing people)autograph far as sunburn,no.summer,yes.colors varying on computer,yes.I was getting disgusted at at peoples comments when thet never even met a celebrity before.especially keanu,who can look 6-2 at times.NOT 5-11.

So who is this "Glenn" guy, and why does he have access to so many celebs?

[Editor Rob: in one of his first posts he said he collects auto's and I think photographer? Maybe he can answer that himself ;-)]
FASULO said on 30/Dec/05
i would say he's in 183-185 range for sure
Glenn said on 20/Dec/05
yes,it is when your doing it from a public computer place.Ill try again in 24 will be pleased.even if you have to wait a little longer.I sent them originally to your email Rob.
