How tall is Kevin Costner

Kevin Costner's Height

6ft 1in (185.4 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.

There was a book from 1991 which mentioned "he was of small to average height during school; by the time he left Fullerton University he was almost 6 feet 1 inch".
Maybe the 6ft 0.75 is right...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Aug/17
He wasn't any less than 6ft1 peak. Look at him in Night Shift. He's in it for literally a few seconds but he clearly towers over Michael Keaton (then a strong 5ft9). Then Field of Dreams and Bull Durham. A solid 2in on Ray Liotta and barely 3in below Tim Robbins. He was barely shorter than Connery in The Untouchables sometimes maybe 1in under but it's more than likely Sean was still 6ft2.


186cm is definitely a better shout for his prime than 184cm (more arguable these days though)
Duffer 5ft 11 said on 5/Aug/17
Hes a tough one to pin down. In Hidden Figures, some scenes show him a little shorter than Sheldon, in others he looks a bit taller. I'd say a tad over 6' peak, probably dips a bit under the magic 6' these days.

A bit taller than Harrison Ford.

Kevin Costner 185cm in peak
Harrison 184 cm in peak

Nowadays is other history. nobody know really how tall are they.
Ali said on 31/Jul/17
An inch shorter than Sean Connery and 2 inches shorter than Kutscher. My guess 5'11.5 peak which is about
6'1 hollywood height. I also think he wears lifts.

i think richardsapin is spot on.
Kostner 186 connery 188,5
Ford 183,7

Yes Berta
your guess is very reasonable too.

I Conclude:

Connery always moved between 187-189 cm Max
Costner between 185-186cm Max
Ford between 183-184 cm Max

I would play all my money that this is true ha haha it's a joke..

187.8cm out of bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jul/17
Connery: 188.6cm
Costner: 185.9cm
Ford: 184.6cm



I think Harrison pre-Indiana Jones days was genuinely near 6ft1.
berta said on 23/Jul/17

Kostner 186 connery 188,5
Ford 183,7
S.J.H said on 5/Jul/17
Maybe before Costner turn 50 he was always 6'1 and somewhere in his late 40 to 50 he had already loss 0.5" at 6'0.5 and still holding it now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/17
I'd put a young Ford in the 184-185cm zone. Star Wars and earlier. He easily cleared 6ft in his prime. In the 90's he looked more 6ft flat
Richardspain said on 29/Jun/17
He was a very strong 185cm (6'1)
He is taller than Harrison Ford too and almost same height than Sean Connery in untouchables.
No
Costner between 185/186cm,in peak
Connery between 188/189cm in peak
Ford between 183cm/184cm in peak

Not more not less
S.J.H said on 13/Jun/17
I think costner might be always 6'0.5 and ashton kutcher 6'2 when i check out how 6'6.25 carmelo anthony edge out kutcher by more than 4'
James said on 11/Jun/17
Costner never looked any taller than six foot, even when he was a major star 25 years ago.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 7/Jun/17
I would settle the case for 6'1.25"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/May/17
He could pull off 186/187cm at times and on a couple of occasions even 188cm (like in Bull Durham or Field of Dreams). I'm almost certain he's stated 6ft2 as his height in addition to the usual 6ft1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/17
I wouldn't call him thin. That's more John Waters or Raymond Massey. Costner's lean but quite athletic looking in build. Broad shouldered...
James said on 7/May/17
He was always very thin.
Dr JJ said on 6/May/17
I always had him around 5' 10" because of his proportions. He must be a very very solidly built bloke. Don't mess build.
berta said on 4/May/17
rampage i think you can be very rght with that listing BUT he was 1 cm taller than cavill who i sstrong 184 guy. my guess is 186 peak as you say but still little taller than 185 rather than just under
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Apr/17
@Leo2001 Costner is taller than Cavill in most pictures.

However, the picture you sent is Costner having Cowboy boots on while Cavill had regular dress shoes. Also, he looks the same as 6'3.5" Michael Shannon. I'm ruling out that picture because Cavill is not only leaning, but he had 0.5 inch less footwear.
Davey said on 29/Apr/17
186/187 in his prime.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/17

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/17
Peak: 6ft1¼(186cm)
Today: 6ft0¾(185cm)


Rob, how feasible would that be?
Richardspain said on 27/Apr/17
I agree with this website this man is a perfect 185cm no less. With his footwear could be 187 cm. A bit taller than Harrison Ford was.
James said on 24/Apr/17
Costner used to be six foot when he was a major star 30 years ago, but he's 5'11" today.

Johnny said on 19/Apr/17
You cannot say definitely that a person is over a particular mark. Nothing is certain and everything is a guess. A particular person may look taller on screen but if you measure the guy he can turn out to be shorter.
Johnny said on 19/Apr/17
@Mark(5'9.25") Ryan Reynolds is a tad shorter than Brett Favre who was measured 6ft 2 and 1/8ths. Reynolds is 6ft 2 max. Click Here Click Here

186cm in the 80's-90's is definitely worth arguing. Watch him in The Untouchables...looks like strikingly tall man walking through the Chicago streets and in Bull Durham I thought he looked nearer 6ft2 w/h Tim Robbins

@James

Costner has always looked a bit taller than 6'1" flat at peak.

Costner did not look any taller than six foot in any of his films. I've no idea why his career imploded 25 years ago.

Rob, what do you mean by that when you say your estimation went up?
Editor Rob: for calling out the guy tip-toeing!
Editor Rob said on 29/Mar/17
Was reading an article the other day and an actor Dan Gordon mentioned something: "So, Marie was on one side of Kevin Costner, who is about 6ft 2in - and I was on the other side - I’m only 5ft 10, so I kinda lifted myself up a wee bit in the picture and Kevin went (he adopts a drawly American accent) ‘Get off your toes Dan’"

My estimation of Costner just went up a bit...
berta said on 17/Mar/17
i think cosnter was a guy that was (maybe still is i dont know) 187.0 when he woke up and by the evening he was 185,9. 1/4 over this listing but never really cared about claiming it
mister_lennon said on 17/Mar/17
Yeah. a strong 187 out of bed and 186 the rest of the day.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/17
Probably was a high 187cm out of bed in his prime (like 187.8cm or something).

I'm still growing I've grown about 2 inches since turning 18 no I don't look 12 either I guess taller people tend to grow for longer periods of time hence why their taller in the first place.

6 foot 17 yrs still growing

Costner was a super late bloomer. biologically he was probably more like a 12-year old at 17
Johan said on 13/Feb/17
Text book example of 185 cm guy, he never wore lifts lol...in several films he is even barefoot ie..Waterworld.
6 foot 17 yrs still growing said on 11/Feb/17
Is growing that much at that age possible ? I can understand 5 ft 11 to 6 ft 1 at that age but 5 ft 2 to 6 ft 1 ..no..and a 6 ft 1 guy at 20 i doubt he was considered short from 13/14 and up .. if not since he was born .. I'm 6 feet and I was considered very tall since 4 or 5 as people compared me with children of my age at that time .."average for a guy in my country is 5 ft 7"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/17
Nearly 6ft2 out of bed and 6ft1 flat in the evening at peak or 6ft1-6ft1¾
berta said on 10/Feb/17
yeah i think i have to agree with rampage to. there is maybe 1 or 2 times in his whole carrier he have looked shorter than 6 foot 1. and most of the timme a littel over. i think bill murray would have about 0,5 cm on kevin. this is to guys that always looked a littel taler than their listing. murray 186,5 ore lets just say 186 and kevin 186 and with skinny frame he could sometimes gives almost 187 impression but he wasnt that tall. i think costner is ore was maybe a guy that would be in the 185,8 range in the evening and 187,2 in morning.In the afternon he was probably 186,1. and by now he is 185,3 in the afternon.
mister_lennon said on 7/Feb/17
Agree with rampage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/17
Editor Rob: watch No Way Out, you can see him in scenes with Will Patton and he can look closer to 6ft than 6ft 1.


He wasn't standing at his tallest. He could look near Hackman's height or at most 1in shorter. He looked that way with Connery aswell in The Untouchables. Both of those guys were still 6ft2. Nothing under 6ft1 peak and just over it is highly possible. Always looked in the tall range.
mister_lennon said on 5/Feb/17
Costner was 6'1 peak and he looked it in almost every movie.
the lifts thing is only a weak guess from you.there Isnt a proof of it. For you, every people in hollywood wear lifts.that is absurd.
James said on 4/Feb/17
Costner was six foot but always wore lifts in films.
mister_lennon said on 30/Jan/17
he also had an inch on solid 6 tommy lee jones in jfk. he looked 6'1 in almost all his movies.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jan/17
Poor guy to still feel affected by being small throughout his growing up years. I have just read on Sean Connery's page that Kevin is a lift wearer and then again on his own page. Our formative years have a lot to answer for!
I saw 'Dances With Wolves' over Christmas and I thought Kevin was about 6ft, which is fine; I didn't for a moment think he was less or in need of lifts! Now I see here that he is 6ft plus, though my boyfriend reckoned he was less!
I shall put Kevin at his full 6ft1, even though he might have shrunk by now. There is no 'peak height' box so I'll give him his full and optimal height!

cliams under 6 foot 1 is bad estimates. he looks it even today most of the time. peak he could have been 186
Editor Rob: watch No Way Out, you can see him in scenes with Will Patton and he can look closer to 6ft than 6ft 1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jan/17
He could easily have fallen into the strong 6ft1 range 2
30 years ago. Looked 2in taller than Ray Liotta (who some still say was 6ft). Even just a few years ago appeared near 2in taller on Bill Paxton (5ft11½) in Hatfield & McCoys. Also edged out Henry Cavill and Chris Pine (both minimum 6ft0½).

He might actually still be 6ft1 when measured. There are times now when he can appear closer to 6ft though
mister_lennon said on 27/Jan/17
Maybe ray lliotta was a solid 5'11 guy at peak, but costner looked about 6'1 near to him.
mister_lennon said on 27/Jan/17
He was a weak 6' 1 peak. Same tall than 6'1-6'2 kevin kline in silverado. Taller than 6 ray lliotta in field of dreams. And now he looks the same than strong 6 henry cavill.
6'1 peak.
S.J.H said on 25/Jan/17
@Hijopotamus @james

I once thought he was between 180-182cm but more look at costner he is sure a real 6 footer like he have claim it before. So 6'1 could be peak or at least with sneakers he is 6'1
James said on 25/Jan/17
He was well known for wearing lifts. He wore lifts in "Wyatt Earp" to look in line with Michael Madsen.

Costner had a hair transplant so why would he not increase his height?
Hijopotamus said on 23/Jan/17
James, why are you so sure? Have you met him?
I always thought Kevin was 5'11" and small frame but I saw him once and he was a big dude and tallerof what I always thought. Normally it's the opposite.
James said on 21/Jan/17
Nope. He was six foot. He wore built up shoes in films.
mister_lennon said on 20/Jan/17
He was 6'1. Looked every bit of it. Taller than many 6 guys and almost as tall than many 6'2 guys. A legit 6'1 guy.
S.J.H said on 20/Jan/17
In 2014 Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit there is a certain bad camera angle, odd angle and lower pavement when chris pine stand with kevin costner. Costner get the advantage from some movie scene but chris pine can also look taller than costner. I think a young Pine can be 6'0.75 and Costner is also the same height not as tall as his peak height ever since a few years back

Click Here with pine

Click Here young costner looking 4-5cm taller than ray liotta

Click Here this one is a misperception picture with 5'9.5 beauty Gal gadot with an inch footwear and camera advantage and we can see a barefoot costner facing down look at her eye level. 184 + cm can be argue than some jokers came in last year pointed costner big liar being just 5'8-5'10 plus in person. Lol at worst he is 6'0 in real and claim shoes 6'1 that doesn't counted as lie and is still 6'1 unless a celebrity claim up like 2-3' then may consider lying on height
James said on 18/Jan/17
No he wasn't. He was exactly six foot.

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

Federer could look that mark with Nadal at times.

@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.

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

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

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

@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 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.

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?

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

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.

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

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).

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?

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]

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.

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

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.

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."

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.

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..

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

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.

185-186cm prime.

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.]

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.
[Editor Rob: I've never heard him say that mark, 6ft and 6ft 1 usually. ]

Most of his post-Millenium stuff is forgettable, with the exception of Mr. Brooks and The Guardian.

Rob would u say the box office success of man of steel means his career is.back on track
[Editor Rob: that movie and being in upcoming Jack Ryan film is certainly much better quality than some of the stuff he's done in previous 10 years, although I did like Mr Brooks.]
