Autopsy programme on now states 5t10

In ''The Thing Called Love,'' he had a couple of inches on Dermot Mulroney (both of them were wearing cowboy boots). I'd say River Phoenix was 5'10.5.''

Rob, how tall do you think he was while filming Indiana Jones?
He looked shorter, maybe like 5'8?
He was like 18-19 at the moment.

He looks a little taller in movies like My Own Private Idaho & The Thing Called Love .. like 5'11 at least. But in MOPI he wears boots which gives him about 2 inches in height.
There's a pic of River and Keanu walking (probably from the movie shoot) together, and River looks around 3 inches shorter.

After watching Dark Blood i find it hard to believe he's above 5'10.
I can buy 5'10.5, but that's it.

That license is an interesting little piece of actor ephemera.

Anyway, I think that he was 5'10, maybe a bit above that, Rob?

If he was still alive this would have been one talented family. His brother is probably the best actor in Hollywood currently.

I wanted to add that the coroner stated he was "70 inches". There wouldn't be any reason to lie on an official autopsy report.
[Editor Rob: there are going to be some reports which can be off, I know this isn't set in stone, but generally I think around that range was fair for River.]

Dude, that sounds then more likely.

Sam, I don't think it's a real license. Real ones usually list weight and hair & eye color. This is probably just a photo one for fans, I have a fake Elvis one given to me by someone that had visited Graceland a few years back.

Take a look at this, Click Here
Is it real?

River was 18-19 years old in '88 and he didn't really look 5'11 back then.
He was probably measured with shoes or boots on, if it's not fake.

Good listing. River with 5'2" Lili Taylor(in heels): Click Here
He was 5'10, possibly 5'10.5".

Watching my own private idaho at the moment, River seems to be wearing 1 and a half, maybe 2" heels and looks to be just under 6ft. So i would say 5ft 10 seems spot on really. Great site Rob. It always makes an interesting read & much more accurate than the other height sites
Sam says on 23/Jun/13
His official height seems to be 5'10 (178 cm), and also it says 70 inches on his autospy. He might have been 180 cm in 93, but i stick with 179 cm. 5'10.5.

River did NOT have a different father than his siblings. There is a half-sister named Jodean, who was the oldest (b. 1964), and was from a previous relationship of the father.

His autopsy stated he was 70 inches (5' 10") 159 lbs and muscular

River was so talented. *sigh* I think that he was. 5'10.5". Also, he had a different father than his siblings.
daryl says on 3/Aug/12
I would say more 5ft11. As much as i would love to believe we were the same hight, he looks like he would have an inch on me in the least
Carol says on 12/Feb/12
Why was river phoenix so different from his siblings? I can't find any similaridade and I'm not talking about the way they are, just about the face and hair...
Some people say that is just diffent genes, but I don't believe it because all of them (4 of them) look alike and he is totally diferent!
Lee says on 11/Feb/12
You need to change your heading of 5 ft 10 inches, which is wrong. River Pheonix was just under 6ft tall, and taller than Keanu Reeves when neither was wearing shoes with a heel. This is a fact.
RICHARD says on 29/Jan/12
River Phoenix is more in the 5'11 range for sure.Watch him in 'I Love You To Death',and he stands next to William Hurt,Keanu Reeves,and Kevin Kline and isn't dwarfed by them at all,though they all had 2-3 inches on him,so 1.80 cm seems fair for him.
