How tall is Kevin Costner

Kevin Costner's Height

6ft 1in (185 cm)

American actor best known for starring in movies like The Untouchables, Dances with Wolves, Field of Dreams, The Bodyguard, No Way Out, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Tin Cup, Mr. Brooks, Man of Steel and Waterworld.
When I was in high school, I was 5-foot-4. My mother promised me I would grow. By the time I was in my second year at California State University in Fullerton, I was 6-foot-1.
- The Spectator, 2001
The fact that I was 5ft 2 as a sophomore didn't help. I'm 6ft 1 now but still relate to those feelings. I didn't date in high school and didn't get my growth until college. I never got over being short.

I reckon he could of measured 6'1; nowadays, somewhere over 6'0.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Nov/16
I thought No Way Out was another instance where he could look pull off 186-187cm zone. Could look marginally shorter than Hackman or the same height.
That and Field Of Dreams. 186cm peak is definitely arguable
Mark said on 4/Nov/16
Rob, is it possible to put a peak for Costner? I would say 6'1.25" peak for him and 6'0.75" today. He sometimes looks shorter than Cavill and Pine due to bad posture.
Editor Rob: I'm not so sure, I think peak 6ft 1 is ok, last time I watched No Way Out, looking at him with Hackman and Will Patton, I just couldn't see him over it.

Today you could argue 184-5 zone, maybe if he starts to look 6ft 0.5 most of the time I will change it.
James said on 30/Oct/16
Costner was six foot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Oct/16
185.5-186cm evening peak.
184-184.5cm evening today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/16
Federer could look that mark with Nadal at times.
Mark said on 27/Sep/16
@Rampage Agreed. Actually, I looked again and Costner would have had the chance of 186/188 cm in his young days. I'm not sure if Federer can pull it off.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/16
@Mark: Costner is 61, Federer is 35 so you can't really compare them today. But Costner in his 30's like Federer wouldn't have dropped under 6ft1.
Mark said on 22/Sep/16
@Rory Federer is holding his own with 7'5"-7'6" Yao Ming here. Federer and Yao Ming are only wearing standard footwear.

Mark said on 12/Sep/16
@Rory Federer stood well with Michael Jordan, was noticablily taller than Bradley Cooper and Rafael Nadal, and in some pictures, he looked the same or edged out Maria Sharapova.

I don't know why people always assume federer is a solid 6'1 or more guy, when he looks a clear inch shorter than Djokovic whose a weak 6'2.
Mark said on 8/Sep/16
I'll admit, Costner is a good 6'1", but Federer usually pulls of 6'1.25" more often than Costner did. Now Costner is at least about 6'1" or a strong 6'1".

Currently, Costner would be 6'1"-6'.075" while Federer is 6'1"-6'1.25". I would still give the edge to Federer, but Costner would have looked similar to Federer in his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
Federer can look 186cm at times. Costner could pull that off aswell in the 80's-90's. Probably were both level in their prime
Mark said on 1/Sep/16
He was a full 6'1". However, Roger Federer strikes me as being taller than Costner even in peak.
Brandon said on 15/Aug/16
6'1" peak
6'0.25-6'0.5" today
James said on 12/Aug/16
He always wore lifts in films.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/16
...also in The Bodyguard, No Way Out, Silverado, Bull Durham, JFK and The Guardian
berta said on 8/Aug/16
to my he was 186 peak in alla his old Movies he looked minimum 185 and osmetimes 187. Now he looks frail and could be weak 185. peak very strong 185 weak 186 and now weak 185
James said on 6/Aug/16
Costner never looked any taller than six foot, except with lifts.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/16
It's not really, James. A solid 6ft1 guy can easily be guessed at 6ft2 and sometimes even 6ft3
James david elliot said on 22/Jul/16
I graduated 8th grade at 5'3" . I remember because we had to measure for our cap and gown. Got some pics with my mom who us 5'5" and I'm significantly shorter. By the time I was a senior I was close to my full height which is right at 6'1". So for me the story sounds very plausible
James said on 17/Jul/16
Lol, Costner was never 6'2". That is a joke.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/16
Peak

Out of bed: 6ft1⅞-6ft2
Before bed: 6ft1-6ft1⅛

Today

Out of bed: 6ft1⅜-6ft1½
Before bed: 6ft0⅝-6ft0¾
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jul/16
His story does give hope…
Johnny said on 7/Jul/16
Costner may have been lying about his drastic height growth.... he was about average height in his high school baseball team. I think he was 5'10" during his high school graduation. Click Here
James said on 7/Jul/16
Costner is six foot.
Ice said on 29/Jun/16
Costner had one of the most dramatic growth spurts in celebratie history .
Mat said on 21/Jun/16
From 163 to 185 cm ? That's 22 cm, it's a hell of a lot to gain. I guess he might have been 163 range in his early years of high school, and towards the later he might have been average. And then grew more
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jun/16
Might still stretch up to about 6ft1 if measured. Some guys surprise with a bit of hidden heighr. Easily held that mark before bed, 20-30 years ago.
Elly m said on 5/Jun/16
The thing with Costner is he has terrible posture it's especially bad in The Bodyguard, i think that's why in some scenes he looks taller than his co-star and in other's looks shorter. If he stood up straight he'd look 2 in taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jun/16
Rob, how likely is sub-6ft for Costner today?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't bet on it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jun/16
Maybe he was 5ft4....still an insane amount of growth!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/16
5ft2 as a sophomore implies 18
Editor Rob: it doesn't make sense when he came out with the 5ft 4 in high school line too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/May/16
Rob, do you believe that he actually grew almost a foot from 18?
Editor Rob: I don't know the specific age he meant, but he could have got a good few inches at 17-19 range to take him to 6ft 1, how many exactly is more unclear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/16
Rob, do you think Costner at face value would get away with claiming 6ft2?


I do agree with Dmeyer that he was an evening 6ft1 guy in his youth, possibly edging toward 6ft1¼.
Editor Rob: hard to say exactly but roughly around 6ft 1, probably holding the mark well, rather than dropping much under it at worst. In Hollywood he can comfortably claim 6ft 2 if he wishes and many wouldn't bat an eyelid, but saying 6ft 1 seems honest.
James B said on 26/May/16
I watched the bodyguard last night and he certainly didn't tower over a lot of men in that film.
Dmeyer said on 26/May/16
In person was already 50s And hé looked 185-6cm Guy so 6ft 1 1/8 or 1,25 peak wouldnt shock me , hé is defenetly à guy who didnt dip under 185,3-185,5cm peak , 6ft 1 dinner type of guy
jajamen said on 25/May/16
Rob, would he edge out Harrison Ford in theres young days?
Editor Rob: I believe Costner could look more of a solid 6ft 1 than Ford.
berta said on 25/May/16
Now 185 and peak:
15% 187
50%186
35%185
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/16
Arch, I thought he could actually look near 6ft2 in Bull Durham. Less than 4in shorter than Robbins
Arch Stanton said on 17/May/16
@James B, tell your dad to watch Bull Durham, doesn't look under 6 ft 1 with Tim Robbins.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/16
@James B: I used to think he was taller, like 6ft3 at least. Some of these heroic leading men types (who tend to be on the tall side anyway) just have larger than life appearances on-screen. Harrison Ford was another guy who growing up I envisioned as a giant.
James B said on 16/May/16
My dad doesn't believe Costner was as tall as 6'1. From what I have seen of Costner so far I don't understand why he would think that?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/16
Watching Dances and he looks impressively tall in some scenes. I've no he was probably walking around at 6ft3 in those boots...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/16
He looks 186-187cm in Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, No Way Out and The Untouchables.
berta said on 18/Apr/16
he looks the same height as Chris pine ore slighly taller and Chris pine have great posture so he cant really be shorter than 185 still. In the 90´s he lokked a Little over this height Peak height was possible 186
James B said on 15/Apr/16
6'1 seems right to me
Palmer said on 13/Apr/16
Check out the movie Silverado he's a shorty. Much shorter than Kevin Kline. No way he is 6'1". He wasn't wearing lifts then.
Johno said on 8/Apr/16
On the Graham Norton Show, he appeared to have 3.5-4 inches on Graham.
Johno said on 8/Apr/16
While i can believe 6'1 for the young Costner, nowadays with his age and poor posture and all, he does not seem to be much past 6'0 at all.

6'0, 6'0.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/16
I wouldn't bring him down just yet. He still looks about this mark in Black & White and 3 Days To Kill.
S.J.H said on 2/Apr/16
Bill murray was still taller than kevin costner and they both listed the same height by rob. Some updating might need to apply here ;(

Murray 6'1
Costner 6'0.5-6'0.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/16
He could look close to 6ft2 in Tin Cup.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Mar/16
Possibly 6ft2 out of bed peak...
berta said on 22/Mar/16
looked 187 in dancing with Wolfes and the Movie with connneryand fields of driems. But was skinny so lets say 185,5-186. Now he looks shorter - 184,5-185
Elly m said on 19/Mar/16
Looks really tall in Field Of Dreams,but this is confusing , people who have met him saying they are 6' and he was either shorter or taller than them.Either people have no idea how tall they really are or Costner shrinks and grows at an alarming rate or wears 5 inch lifts sometimes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/16
That's one picture. He looks taller than Cavill in the movie and in other picture at the premiere. He's most likely 184/185cm today. But a very decent 6ft1 guy in his prime.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Mar/16
Rob are you sure on 6 ft 1 today. Look at him with Cavill there!!

Click Here

OK, he's a bit further back and posture not great but he doesn't look 6'1" there!!
Editor Rob: there's a decent chance he could be 184 now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/16
More likely he'll get 6ft0½ w/h 6ft1 peak.
S.J.H said on 5/Mar/16
Rob, perhaps it's time for costner down at 6'0.75?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/16
He looked a good 4in or so taller than Michael Keaton in Night Shift (he's only in it for a few seconds). 186-187cm is arguable in Field Of Dreams also
Borats chicken said on 28/Feb/16
rob, do you think he could reach 187 in his 20s?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't guess him that high.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Feb/16
He might have scraped 188cm out of bed in his prime
berta said on 26/Feb/16
peak height semmed like 186 and now he is weak 185. The dude is 60 years with kind of weak bones so 1 cm loss istn that strange
Jesse Stone said on 22/Feb/16
I'm Costners BIGGEST fan and that will stay that way forever. But nevertheless I have to admit...in Jack Ryan there is not a single scene where he looked taller than Chris Pine (who claimed himfelf to be 6'0....anyhow listed here as 6'0.5). And even at the premiere always looks a tad under Pine:

Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
more footwear, still not quite as tall as Pine Click Here

For me, Costner was an easy 6'1 in his prime. But it's no shame to loose height at over 60!! I mean he's still looking amazing and a few cm's more or less won't make him less likable.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Feb/16
He might fall into that 184.5-185cm after a long day but can still maintains 6ft1 for a good portion of the day
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/16
Rob, which morning-evening range is most likely for Costner at peak?

A) 188cm/186cm
B) 187.5cm/185.5cm
C) 187cm/185cm
D) 186.5cm/184.5cm
Editor Rob: I'd say B range, with chance of slightly above/below that
Niggurd said on 17/Feb/16
It's funny how the numbers of Kevin's height and age match each other (6'1 and 61!) Anyway, I think he was a strong 6'1 at his peak and now he's shrunk down to a weak 6'1. (6'1.25 peak, 6'0.75 now probably) What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob: at his age a small fraction is quite believable to have lost. You do well getting to 60 with a 1/8th or 1/4 loss.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/16
Rob, could that mean that Quinn might have peaked at 6ft2?
Editor Rob: he could look between 6ft 1 and 2 at times
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Feb/16
Ok, Anthony Quinn looks a clear 1in taller than Costner here. In fact he gives a taller impression beside Kevin than Connery did in The Untouchables.

Rob, is it possible that Quinn in his mid-70's didn't lose much height?
Editor Rob: yeah he can still look 6ft 1 range with Costner!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/16
Rob, what are the chances of him measuring 6ft flat today?
Editor Rob: they are increasing each year, but I would say he still clears that comfortably if measured.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/16
"Peak height was 6ft 1⅛in (185.73cm)"

Rob do you agree hé is the kind of guy who measured 185,5cm range like very solid 6'1 at kow with à chance of 6'1 1/8in in the afternoon
Editor Rob: he may well have been that zone.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Oct/15
He could look 6ft1½ in Bull Durham and Field of Dreams...
Dmax said on 20/Oct/15
Rob you should do a page about late growth spurts
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 12/Oct/15
Pillow-Pig: 5'8" to 5'10" seems impossible. How many 5'9 guys wear a 34 inseam as Costner does? I'm a legit 6 ft and wear 32 inseam, if I wear 34s they drag an inch or so. Costner has the legs of a 6'1 - 6'2" guy, period.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 11/Oct/15
Rob, I'd even argue 6 ft 1-1/2 inches prime (187 cm). Great actor. His pants are 34" x 34", chest 40-42", sleeve 34", neck 16", shoe 10-1/2 to 11 U.S., he weighed 170 pounds in the 90's, probably 180 today. (Source: Premier props, Prop archives, NYTimes 11/21/93). A 34" inseam is industry standard for "tall guys" in the 6 to 6 ft 3 range.
S.J.H said on 24/Sep/15
The real different between denise leary and costner was like 1cm. Leary himself claim 6'1.5 but looking more like flat 6'1 and costner could look 184-185cm range. He maybe drop a fraction below 185cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/15
Watching The Untouchables again, Costner looks at times identical to Connery.
Ian C said on 3/Sep/15
That's a fascinating story Costner tells about his late growth spurt. That would be so atypical that I'm inclined to suspect that the story isn't true. But let's suppose that it is. Guy was Robert Blake and then became Errol Flynn. Cool.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Aug/15
Dips a little below 185cm in the evening today.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 29/Jul/15
full 6 feet today, easily 6 ft 1 in his prime. He never looked shorter than advertized.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jul/15
C'mon guys you're better than that...5ft10 is ridiculous nevermind 5ft8!
Strong possibility that he's a fraction under 6ft1 today though.
Mike said on 1/Jul/15
Probably closer to 184 now.

Rob, how come with 5'10 Gal Gadot (pictures posted below by @someguy) he looks 6ft max?
[Editor Rob: at times Kevin can look 6ft 0.5 recently.]
Jesse Stone said on 25/Jun/15
@Pillow-pig: Is this really true? Really strange cause Costner never looked really 6'1 to me anyway. But never seemed to be in elevator shoes either... He loves Cowboy boots - that's for sure! The pictures with both bare feet Costner and Gal Gadot made me think.

But whatever height he is, he will always be my Idol and my very favourite actor!!
Pillow-pig said on 25/Jun/15
A friend & I were standing in a restaurant/bar in SoCal last week when Costner & friends came in for dinner. He was no further than five feet from us both on his way in and going out. My friend is a legit 6'1" and I am 6'3" (bare feet). I asked my buddy later how tall he thought Costner was. He said, 5-8, maybe 5-9. I replied, maybe 5-10 AT MOST. Any 6-1 claim is sheer Hollywood fantasy. No wonder he looks the same height as Gal Gadot. He is.
Jesse Stone said on 18/Jun/15
Rob, as mentioned before, pics with Gal Gadot do really seem mysterious to me. I mean she is described as 5'10 and there should be a 3 inch difference when he's barefoot and she in very flat. But they seem SIMILAR. Even bad camera angles can't conceal 3 inches. What do you honestly think?

Rob, who automatically comes to mind when you think of legit 6ft1 men?
[Editor Rob: I'd have put Costner in that zone, maybe not quite solid 6ft 1 anymore though, he is 60's and could have lost a little.
I just thought for a moment and Obama, Martin Csokas, Blake Harrison popped up.]
Dmax said on 19/May/15
@Rob This dude's growth case is similar to Dennis Rodman they both grew a ALOT at such late stage and as you had said Rob that Dennis Rodman probably did some physical activity that shocked his system to have huge surge of GH. This is understandable in Rodman's case since he is an athlete and all but Kevin Costner doesn't seem like the type that exercise regularly or so which I find strange.
[Editor Rob: maybe he just had the genetics for late big spurt, but sometimes doing more exercise could help get the hormones produced faster/better?]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/May/15
Dmeyer, that's The Untouchables which was 1987.
But I agree that he could very well have been 186cm range

[Editor Rob: he could be near that mark soon, I think even in that Jack Ryan movie I don't think he looked much different than Pine.]

In The Untouchables

Kevin Costner - 6ft1¼(186cm)
Sean Connery - 6ft2(188cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/May/15
He edged out Chris Pine and Henry Cavill.
ednerd said on 1/May/15
I remember seeing him as an extra in night shift (frat party scene) he dwarfed Michael Keeton. I didn't know he was in the movie till I saw the credits. I'd say he's definitely 6'1"

Rob, is 184cm possible today?
[Editor Rob: sooner or later he will be that mark.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/15
Connery was still 188cm in the late 80's to mid 90's, down maybe a centimetre from his peak
Judd said on 3/Mar/15
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Mar/15
Costner definitely looked nearer in height to Connery than Ford...but remember Ford is more than 10 years older than Costner and by the late 80's he may have already lost a bit. Ford looked near 2in shorter than Connery while Costner was for the most part less than 1in shorter, sometimes about the same.

Actually i think in the last crusade, Ford didn't look 2 full inches shorter than Connery...From what i remember he looked likelier 1-1,5" shorter, but no more...however as i said on Connery's page, i guess in 1989 Connery was a little under 6'2"...like 6'1.5" (is what he did look next to Kevin Kline in 1988).
Perhaps Connery was 6'1.5" in 1989 and Ford close to 6'.
CDS said on 3/Mar/15
I noticed too in "The Untouchables" that Connery seemed to be sorta hunched over for a lot of the movie. Certainly both actors dwarfed the other two "Untouchables", Charlie Martin Smith & Andy Garcia. LOL

In their prime (obv. Costner would edge out Ford now), Rob, who would you say is taller- Harrison Ford or Kevin Costner? I always put these two at about exactly the same height in the past, since they had worked with a lot of the same actors, like 6'1.5-6'2" Sean Connery for instance. Both looked to be just about an inch under him (Costner in "The Untouchables" & Ford in "IJ & the Last Crusade").
[Editor Rob: would have said Costner in a stadiometer shakedown might have edged Ford.]

I agree with rob. I actually have several doubt regarding Ford at 6'1", while i don't have any doubt about Costner at 6'1"....
Ford was likelier 6'0.5"
CDS said on 2/Mar/15
I might go as far as to say he's a solid 6'0.75" barefeet, end of day height (maybe Harrison Ford at his peak was more 6'0.25"-0.5"-??). The only reason I say this is because I envision a good strong 6'1"-barefooter someone like Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Day-Lewis- someone who would claim 6'2" as their official height at some point in their careers-something Kevin has never done. He has always said either 6' or 6'1". I guess I was thinking more of the height in shoes; although he would still be closer to 6'2" in shoes than 6'1". And if Connery's peak height was 6'1.5" (his James Bond measurement), that would make Kevin about 3/4" under him (in "The Untouchables"), which sounds perfect.

CDS said on 23/Feb/15
I would say Costner has always been a legit 6'1"- has always held his own with guys who were 6'2" even- like Sean Connery in "The Untouchables" and more recently with William Hurt in "Mr. Brooks". I will say though I just saw "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit", and 6'1" Chris Pine edged him out ever so barely- not more than 1/2 inch, so maybe with age, the 60-yr old has dipped to right below 6'1"-??- but barely.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/15
200lbs today.

Rob, do you think he's still 6ft1 or are you convinced he's dipped under it?
the shredder said on 17/Feb/15
Rob , what do you give his weigh nowadays?
[Editor Rob: could be 190 range]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Feb/15
"Peak height was 6ft 1¼in (186cm)"

Possibly down to 6ft0¾ now but no less.
Judd said on 4/Feb/15
Dmeyer, I think he is one of those few actors on which I would be willing to bet that are legit 6'1"...
maybe today he's a small fraction under 6'1" (likely 6'0.75") but in his first movies he was for sure a strong 6'1".

dmeyer, you have any idea about the height of the actor Tomas Arana? In the bodyguard (1992) he had a role but there're few scenes where he stays next to Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. He pass for a 6'0.5" and i think it can be reliable. What do you think?

Interesting photos, Dmeyer. Costner actually looks 186-187cm with Pine (who isn't under 6ft0½). But then in Draft Day he really struggles with 6ft1 beside Tom Welling (who Rob still insists isn't quite 6ft3).
Dmeyer said on 3/Feb/15
Click Here , Click Here , for those who say pine is over 6'0.5 or costner struglle to look 6'1 ,
Dmeyer said on 3/Feb/15
Rob do you agree legitimate 6'1 Guy are almost 186cm since since 185.42cm wish is not évén 1mm closer to 185 than 186cm , also any Guy who measured 6'1-1.1in Will just claim 6'1 basicaly 6'1 is a 185.5cm wish is 4cm taller than a Guy Like me who is 181.5cm
[Editor Rob: well 185.4-5 is legit 6ft 1, 186 I think is better saying strong or 1.25er.]
S.J.H said on 1/Feb/15
Kevin costner should be downgrade now. He was 60years old and look alot like a 184.5cm guy who struggling to hit 6'1
LadyC said on 22/Jan/15
i agree for the 6ft1 just look at him besides tim robbins
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jan/15
Judd, in the 80's and early 90's he could pass for 6ft2 at times. He's probably close to it out of bed. Still looks a legit 6ft1 today
Judd said on 30/Dec/14
Kevin Costner is the favourite actor of my mum. She believes he's something like 6'3"...
He's for sure shorter but actually I believed for years he was between 6'1.5" and 6'2"...
6'1" in his first movies for sure...he's a legit 6'1 guy...today he's very close in height to Henry Cavill (6'0.5"). Maybe 6'0.5-0.75" today?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Dec/14
Looked 187-188cm in No Mercy
Lonestar said on 15/Dec/14
I think his more like 6'0.5 now. Maybe a fraction more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/14
He's still gotta be around the 6ft1 mark today. He's edged out both Henry Cavill and Chris Pine. What more evidence do you need to suggest otherwise unless of course those guys are shorter than what they're listed.

Rob any chance of giving him 186cm peak?
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1 I think is fine for him]
Mike said on 7/Dec/14
Legit 6ft 1/185-186. Rob can you add a photo of him and more awesome movies like Field of Dreams, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Tin Cup, Mr. Brooks, A Perfect World and Man of Steel? One of the best actors along with Anthony Hopkins and Denzel Washington.
jamie179cm said on 3/Dec/14
rob is spot on he looks a legit 6ft1 guy to me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/14
He actually looked about 6ft2 with Tim Robbins in Bull Durham.
The Master said on 29/Nov/14
In Silverado, he looks 6', a few inches less than Glover and Goldblum.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Nov/14
It's a pretty ambiguous description of someone. "around 6 foot", "6ft-er" can apply to someone whose up to 3in over that mark. Likewise, "6 and half foot" isn't the same as someone whose ½in over 6ft. It's someone/something that's right between 6ft and 7ft (6ft5-6ft7). But people commonly get that one wrong
Arch Stanton said on 27/Nov/14
Uose says on 17/Oct/13
Does anyone remember Waterworld? He's the main actor there, and someone asks him his height, he answers "around 6 foot". By that I used to think he must be 5' 11'' ish. Any definite proof/evidence for anything over 6' Rob?
[Editor Rob: I think he can look more than 6 foot in a lot of films over the years]

Well he's described as 6 ft 1 in A Perfect World and always looked it to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/14
Affleck is 6ft2½...so him having more than 1in on Costner makes perfect sense
Dejavu said on 18/Nov/14
Ben Affleck had more than an inch on Kevin Costner
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Nov/14
He could be 185cm flat, which technically is 6ft0¾.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
He still looks this...

Tom Welling appeared to be almost 1-2 inches taller in Draft Day, than Costner.

A big 185cm Guy in person nearer 186cm than 184cm now could be 184.5-5cm
Bogie said on 19/Jul/14
He didn't strike me as tall in Bull Durham next to Sarandon, 6'1 to me isn't legit tall 6'2 1/2 like Affleck is the start of legit tall imo
Dmeyer said on 6/Jul/14
I think he is Still near 185cm Like 6'0 5/8 or 6 ft 0.75in
grizz said on 5/Jul/14
Still a legit 6ft1 guy, especially next to 6ft0.5in Cavill. He has the same build as my dad-easily 186cm in his youth, while now in his 50's he's more like 185-185.5 cm.
Ron said on 11/Jun/14
Really late bloomer, but it seems that all the late bloomers become the taller ones usually lol, Legit 6 ft 1 man.
mike said on 5/Jun/14
Rob, are you gonna downgrade him to 6ft 0.5 and give him 6ft 1 peak?
[Editor Rob: he may have lost a small fraction, maybe I'll wait till he really looks no more than 184]
PLB said on 2/Jun/14
There is a psychological theory that boys who grow to their full height only later in adolescence are not as confident as those who have their growth spurt earlier. So if Costner had been short (5'4") as a teen and only grew tall later on, that might mean something. I would guess that Connery was taller at a younger age than Costner.

I was only 5'8" in Junior High but I grew 5" in one year. I was so damn clumsy that year I could barely stand up. If I stood up too quickly I would get dizzy. I blacked out once and knocked out a front tooth. I woke up spitting blood and tooth fragments. It took years before I was more or less normal again.

I dated a woman whose kid was 6'5". He was much bigger than me He was about 350 lbs. He also had year in which he went from being a runt to being a giant. She told me that that year he has cried a lot because it hurt so much.

I'm certainly glad I grew but it can be an uncomfortable process for late bloomers.

his part was decent size in man of steel cause so far draft day jack ryan and three days to kill flopped but superman made alot of money so i was hoping it would count as a hit for him
spainmen said on 19/Apr/14
Rob what do you think on this it was supposedly said by Costner on an interview:
"The fact that I was 5ft 2 as a sophomore didn't help. I'm 6ft 1 now but still relate to those feelings. I didn't date in high school and didn't get my growth until college. I never got over being short."
[Editor Rob: yes that kind of quote has been around for a while]
James B said on 15/Apr/14
Never struck me as looking taller than 6'1 if anything looked under 185cm.

186 prime, 184 today, still taller than Cavill.
Andy Clifford said on 3/Apr/14
Costner is six foot.
dmeyer said on 13/Feb/14
To me He looks taller than pine
Sam said on 6/Feb/14
Yeah, I was a fan of both Costner and Ford when I was a kid and always imagined them around the same size but I do think now that Costner would have edged out Ford by a couple cm both in 80s and maybe a full 3 cm today.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 5/Feb/14
This guy is a full 6'1. In 1993 he was interviewed by the NY Times, and they listed him at "6 feet 1 inches tall, 170 pounds". This seems rather slim, but the clothing he wore in Dances with wolves 1990, the untouchables 1987, show us a man 170 - 180 lbs, basically Harrison Ford sized, but slightly taller.

His overcoat was a size 40L (40 inch chest, -- Long) in Untouchables, and his uniform in Dances with wolves was a 16" neck, and 42 chest. Sleeves 34" , and size 11 shoe. The industry standard for a 40 L overcoat/ suit is for a man from 6 ft to 6 ft 3, also called Medium tall/ or Medium Long. So this also illustrates the man is a solid 6 footer. You can find all these stats in proparchives and other websites that auction off Movie props. They are good independent ways to use volumetric estimates of body mass, and height to within 10 or 20 lbs, and approx. an inch of stature.
Lorne said on 2/Feb/14
Well if Costner really is 184-185, what does that mean for Cavill, who is shorter despite better posture?
bodwaya said on 2/Feb/14

i agree today nearer 6 ft 0.5-0.75 in 10 yrs back defenetly 6 ft 1-1.2
Balrog said on 24/Jan/14
Dmeyer, maybe 10 year ago full 6'1'' for Costner is ok but recently he seemed same height as Chris Pine. Maybe now 184cm is a possibility? He is almost 60..
berta said on 24/Jan/14
i think he is and was 186
DMEYER said on 22/Jan/14
at low i am 5 ft 11.25-11.5 he seemed close to 2 in taller defenetly not under 6 ft 1 10 years ago it wouldnt shock me if he was measured at peak 6 ft 1 1/8 185.5-6cm , 1cm mistake is possible so about 4cm taller 181.5 plus 4 cm thats 185.5/6ft1
thebad7 said on 20/Jan/14
Like Clint Eastwood, lots of people want to believe this guy is short--he isn't. He's a textbook example of 6'1". In 1987's THE UNTOUCHABLES, when his Elliott Ness meets Sean Connery's CPD Officer Jim Malone on the bridge, the men stand face-to-face with similar footwear. Connery is about 1" taller, and I've always believed Connery to be 6'2" as he stacks up this way against 6' and 6'1" actors. Likewise, in 2007's MR. BROOKS, Costner looks almost identical to William Hurt--with 6'2" Hurt having a slight but noticeable advantage.

One note about him that someone else pointed out: he's always seemed to be very honest and without care regarding his height. I've seen him claim both 6' and 6'1" in interviews--he's not like 6'2" Ben Affleck, who claims 6'3 1/2" or 6'4". Confident guy, wonderful screen presence, awesome director--2003's OPEN RANGE is his best work as a director and actor. It's nice to see that's he reinvented himself as a kind of character actor--he looks to be really good in the upcoming JACK RYAN film with Chris Pine.

One other note: the man looks great at 58 years old, and he doesn't look like he's lost any height. 6'1" in his prime for sure.

I wouldn't argue anywhere below 6ft1/185cm for Costner's peak after watching Bull Durham, The Untouchables and Field of Dreams. Looks pretty close to 6ft2 with Tim Robbins who might've been a full 6ft5.

Rob, have you watched Man of Steel?

I think Henry Cavill could be just 6ft on the nose
[Editor Rob: I think he's got to be above 6ft flat - he has scenes in The Tudors with Callum Blue and isn't really much different!]
Lenad is sexy said on 8/Dec/13
Rob do you think 186cm could be closer to the truth for his prime? I sure do
[Editor Rob: you can't rule a fraction above or below a mark out, it is possible he was a guy who could be mid-day a fraction above 6ft 1.]
Edlt2882 said on 4/Dec/13
I actually walked past Kevin Costner (not realizing in that moment that it was him) at Cal State Fullerton of all places. I remember thinking that he was far taller than me (I stand 5'7"), and would have placed him at 6'3". But he was wearing boots, which may have given him a 2 inch boost, so 6'1" sounds right. I wouldn't go lower.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/13
Rob, did Costner also claim to be 6ft2 aswell?

I seem to remember saying it a few years ago that he mentioned it on some talk show.

Lorne said on 22/Sep/13
Not under 6ft1, even at 58 he must be 185. Demeter said he flirted with 186cm in person, he was just3, max 3.5in under 184.5-195cm Tim Robbins, 4-5cm taller than 182cm Ray Liotta. I think 186cm isn't impossible, certainly a guy who never measured less than 185.5, today still a full 185, at worst a few mm under if Cavill is nearer 183. What is strange is Rob says 100% that Costner wasn't more than a full 6ft1, yet he is clearly and comfortably taller than the supposedly 184cm Henry Cavill at age 58. And Cavill has that impeccable Brad Pitt type posture. Personally, I say 6ft0.25 is much better for Cavill, unless Costner was minimum 185.5 and justhasn't lost any height whatsoever.

when i met him he was flirting with 186cm no less than strong 6 ft 1 a kind of guy who didnt dip under the 185.3-185.5cm mark today might be 184.5-185cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/13
And he still edged out Henry Cavill
avi said on 6/Aug/13
@Rampage
Robbins looks 6'5 or more on screen. But he may be 6'4.5 or even 6'4. Costner looked 3-3.5 shorter I think you may have a point he could be a strong 6'1 but camera angles may favor Costner. Its so hard to say. 6'1 is fair
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Aug/13
Rob would not agree but...

"Peak height was 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"

Looked 186-187cm in the 80s and 90s. Only 3in shorter than Tim Robbins (possibly 6ft5 peak) in Bull Durham and about 2in taller than Ray Liotta (possibly 6ft peak) in Field of Dreams. So, really he pulled off 6ft2 opposite those guys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/13
Larc, most people here agree that Reynolds is 6ft2 or therebouts.
Cooper I personally think is 6ft1.

I'm just saying that Costner can appear close to 6ft2. Doesn't mean he is. Probably was always in the 6ft1 range. He was 2in taller than Ray Liotta in Field of Dreams.
Larc 74in said on 29/Jul/13
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover:
No way in hell Bradley Cooper is 6'1....just look at him with Ryan Reynolds, he's more than one inch shorter than him, and Reynolds isn't 188, but more likely 186-187 in truth. So either 183 or 184 are more than enough for Cooper.

And Costner always looked just about a full 6'1, no more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/13

I have a relative who is 6'1" and he is definitely taller than Costner. Just watched Untouchables and I would guess he is wearing something to give him another inch.

James said on 20/Sep/11
thebad7 do you think 185cm or 186cm for costner?
thebad7 said on 19/Sep/11
Watched THE UNTOUCHABLES recently. Once again, no mistake about it: next to 6'2" Sean Connery, Costner looks 6'1"--keep in mind both actors are wearing dress shoes with a similar heel. I never thought of Costner as physically intimidating, but whether one loves him or hates him, the man does have a great screen presence, and yes, he does look tall onscreen--not super tall, but tall. 6'1" barefoot is right for him because he does look 6'2" with shoes--looking back on THE UNTOUCHABLES, this makes sense since Sean Connery has at least an inch on him, and Connery always looked like he hit 6'3" in shoes. Keep in mind that this film was shot in '86/'87 so both actors were younger and essentially at their peak heights.

I think the case for Costner being 6'1" is bolstered by the fact that in photos I've seen, he looked about the same height as Ashton Kutcher--whom I believe to be 6'1" barefoot--with Kutcher having an edge in height. If Costner was 5'11" or a weak 6'0" barefoot, he'd be dwarfed by so many actors. He holds his own against 6'2"+ actors--Connery, William Hurt, Clint Eastwood, etc.

James, he doesn't very often strike as really tall but that's because he has a small frame, he's very thin when not overweight, not robust at all.
Bull if you look realistically, he does look like 6'1 - 6'2 guy in his prime.

i think i would lable costner as a weak 6'1 1/2 at his peak like 185-186cm. he struck me as looking stocky in the bodyguard which can make you look shorter.

these days i think he would be exactley 4 inches shorter than someone like tim robibns and when younger 3.75 inches shorter than tim. he's still standing legitly tall at 6'1 flat.

kevin costner only look about an inch shorter than ashton kutcher without shoe advantage in real, but weir that he look 2inch shorter than ashton in the guardian. my guess 184cm for kevin costner.

Sometimes looked taller than 6"1"" but an old Burt Lancaster looked his height in Field of Dreams. 184cm is right for Costner, a weak 6"1"" like Harrison Ford

At 5' 11.6 coster was near 2 in taller 7 years ago
James said on 12/Sep/11
yeah he could look 186cm with Ashton Kutcher and tim robbins.

still though coster seems like a 'weak' tall guy.

Rob , do you think he could have been more like 6'1.25 ? I swear he looked less then an inch lower then Freeman ... They looked the same height in the film .
[Editor Rob: always a chance of a fraction over]
