I'm not sure he's lost more than 0.5in, and he has looked alarmingly near 5'9 for a number of years now, even appearing a little under that with a loose stance at times. 5'9.5 peak and 5'9 today is my guess, optionally 5'9.75 peak and 5'9.25 today.

looks more 5'9 than 5'9.75
he is significantly shorter than 5'10 or almost guys like charlie cox and paul wesley

And personally I think Cox is between 5'9.25-5'9.75, making Spacey goes to 5'8.5

But suposing Cox and wesley as 5'10, Spacey should be downgraded to 5'9. At least nowadays

Rob is 178cm peak possible and maybe 176-177cm today?
[Editor Rob: don't think he's lost more than maybe a small fraction, I don't think he really looked 5ft 10 range 20 years back.]
Anton said on 30/Jun/15
He's a short dude, probably around 5'9 or weak 5'10.
Rick said on 30/May/15
Spacey looks quite average on House of Cards, probably 5'9.
Andrea said on 22/Apr/15
Well, with Michael Rosenbaum, it was in 2006... And he could look a good couple inches shorter than him in some pictures! I doubt he'd lost more than a small fraction by 47... Maybe a fraction over 5'9 at "peak" and now not over 5'9...
Andrea said on 21/Apr/15
Arch, you can also see him with guys that Rob has met like Michael Rosenbaum and Brandon Routh... He can really look not (much) over 5'9 with them! Rob, what about 5'9.25? Around 5'10 in shoes...
[Editor Rob: he could have lost a fraction by now and be nearer 5ft 9]
Arch Stanton said on 20/Apr/15
How long do you think Sting's face is? He's long had a very high forehead but with a beard it accentuates it. He looks like one of thosechess grandmasters now with the great heads like a Bobby Fischer!
[Editor Rob: it could be 9.7-9 range but the beard has an extra inch to his chin.]
Arch Stanton said on 20/Apr/15
Rob, perhaps it's time for a downgrade now to 5'9. Check out Click Here with Sting! And we've seen Sting look 5'10 range of late too! He makes Sting look a full 6 ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/15
He's a lot shorter than I expected. His charisma adds to the illusion of more height

Looks distinctly medium height in everything ive seen him in
S.J.H said on 2/Mar/15
Jason bateman only look a solid 2cm top on Kevin Spacey. Bateman is 5'11 and Kevin Spacey should be what he claim 5'10
cole said on 27/Jan/15
@Editor Rob: Think a cm loss is quite likely given his age and poor posture over the years? He can look more 174 cm range with sloppy posture but measured height would probably be nearer 176 cm today, looked a decent 177 cm in his prime.
[Editor Rob: 1cm by now could be possible for him.]
kap said on 22/Jan/15
@ Realist, I agree, was here to comment on that myself. Shahid is no more than 5'7.5 or 5'7.75 .. Spacey looked 1.5 inches taller than Shahid and Farhan at those awards. Plus, if you looked closely, Shahid had better footwear, bigger heel. Shahid has even claimed 5'10, ridiculous.

@ MD Seems like Dev might be 5 inches taller than Spacey if he stood up straight since Dev is leaning, loose posture.
cole said on 1/Jan/15
@Mike: Looks about 4 cm shorter than Kimmel here: Click Here
Mike said on 21/Dec/14
Actually i take back what i said about him looking 174. He looked close in height with Jimmy Kimmel.
Jimmy Kimmel: 5ft 11-11.25in
Kevin Spacey: 5ft 10in
Silent D said on 1/Nov/14
176cm and one of the greatest actors.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Oct/14
Rob can you add a photo and some more films like Se7en, Glengarry Glen Ross, Pay it Forward, Superman Returns, and Casino Jack? And also add He is also known for the voice of the robot GERTY in the film Moon and for his role as Frank Underwood in the TV series House of Cards.
D said on 7/Sep/14
On HoC he looks more 173-174cm. Sometimes like 175 tops
JB said on 1/Sep/14
5'9" makes more sense. On House of Cards most people are taller than him yet he still maintains an average look.
Adamz said on 12/Jul/14
175 or 176cm tops.
mike said on 25/Jun/14
Rob, do you really think he's 177? he looks more 174-175 .
[Editor Rob: he can look around 5ft 9 at times]
Guy said on 5/Jun/14
Looks like 174 next to 179-180 Bateman. Click Here
cole said on 4/Jun/14
He's not this close to 5'10 unless he slouches badly. He definitely looks more 5'9 flat most of the time.
bodwaya said on 3/Jun/14
he was 1 inch shorter then copper in american beauty so 5 foot 9 bang on
Realist said on 22/May/14
Rob, he went to the IIFA(indian awards) this year. He is dancing with an actor Shahid Kapur. Both have similar shoes. That guy is max 5'8 and Kevin looked about 0.5-1 inch taller. So probably Kevin is around 5'9. My guess is 171 for shahid and 174 for spacey.
Greg said on 3/May/14
Last night on Fallon, he honestly looked maybe an inch or two shorter than Fallon. I would have said 5'10 at least, maybe 5'10.5".
Levin said on 25/Apr/14
I got this picture form Kevins official site: Click Here

Here he's with
Tobey Maguire( 171/172 cm)
Rob Lowe( He claims to be 179cm but come on.. He's nowhere near 179 range.. Seeing as how he's head to head with Tobey)
And lastly Kevin, I'd say he's somewhere from 171cm to 173cm tops, no way this guy is even close to 177cm range, hell I wouldn't say he's close to 175cm range either.. Just seeing him with Tobey, yeah..
What do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: well on his page here he is listed 5ft 10, but his actual claim is 5ft 11.75! That might be a pavement, it could be sloping a little, I don't know.]
Han said on 10/Apr/14
Rob, it looks like you wrote the title of the movie 'The Usual Suspects' as The Unusual Suspects here.
Anyways, he looks around 5ft 9 to me
cole said on 7/Apr/14
@MD: He's lucky to hit 5'9 with Patel, yeah. He has appeared anywhere in the 5'8.5 - 5'9 range to me for a number of years now. Maybe he was 5'9.5 or so at his peak, but he's definitely not that tall now.
anon said on 15/Feb/14
5'7 no way near 5'9
cole said on 2/Jan/14
Someone have mentioned he looked close in height with Jason Bateman in Horrible Bosses - he did look around 1.5in shorter imo - and there is one scene where he stands in front of 6ft John Francis Daley and looked around 3in shorter. He has appeared around 5'9 flat before, so I'll go with a doubtful 5'9.5 as his maxiumum, as he tends to hold a poor posture. He's most likely in the 175-176 cm zone. 5'9.75 is a stretch.

With Daley: Click Here
PeyoteTimes said on 9/Dec/13
C'mon guys...If you look at all the legit evidence (ie no guessing on footware) over the years, you give him max 5.9 1/4 evening height...I won't buy that it's more than 5.9 1/2 or less than 5.8 1/2. My guess is barely 5.9
MD said on 21/Nov/13

With 6'1.75" Dev Patel:

Kevin is not almost 5'10". He's lucky if he's a full 5'9". He's almost 5'9".
averagegiant said on 18/Nov/13
in house of cards he's nearly shorter than everyone, most tower. 177 seems far fetched. I'd venture to say he's not hitting 5'9 and he never has.
Silent d said on 21/Oct/13
About the same height as gabriel byrne in the usual suspects and a little shorter than steven baldwin. Benicio del toro was about 12m taller than him. I always thought he was 5 foot 8 but 176cm seems better.
Lore said on 13/Oct/13
In See no evil ear no evil he is as tall as Billy Wilder wich is shown 1.70 in front of the police line for photos. So he is 1.70 or around
MAria said on 27/Aug/13
Sometimes , i think he is 173 cm ( Wiseguy)
Sometimes he is Taller: American Beauty 178 cm, And More or More Tall Horribles bosses 182 cm, i see it Like this
Shib said on 19/Jul/13
I worked as an extra on "House of Cards". I'm a little over 5'10" and he's at least as tall as me. I'd say 5'10.5" or 5'11'. He's taller than he looks on screen.

Jason Bateman is no more than 180 cm, Spacey can't be much more than 174 cm.
Zach24 said on 14/Jun/13
In the usual suspects, there's a lineup that makes him look 6'.
oreo said on 26/Feb/13
180 cm
MaskDeMasque said on 8/Feb/13

Bateman is 5'9.75
Spacey is 5'9
Tyler said on 25/Jul/12
Unless he wore .75" lifts in Horrible Bosses, I wouldn't say anything less than 5'10.5".
Jack said on 15/Jun/12
He looked surprisingly short next to 180 cm Wes Bentley in American Beauty. maybe 175 cm.
John D said on 10/Feb/12
Looks shorter than he actually is for some strange reason. Maybe because he carries most of his weight in his stomach area?
