I met him 2 years ago and he was about 5'7. I'm 5'8 and was a bit shorter than me.
5'8" guy said on 24/Aug/15
5'8" with shoes on. In awakenings he and Deniro are similar in height. By 1 inch for De niro. 5"7" barefoot. Spot on Glenn.

Any links for his autospy ?
jakob said on 22/Aug/15
rob would you of liked to of met him?
[Editor Rob: jakob, of course, he was a great actor and really funny comedian!]

Autopsy says 5'08''.
MJKoP said on 13/Aug/15
5'8" according to his autopsy.

5'7 seems about right for Williams. He looked a couple inches taller than Nathan Lane in The Birdcage, and about an inch or two shorter than Kenneth Branagh in Hamlet.

Rob, What is your favorite Film of Robin Williams? , superb talented actor May he rip, I think he hovered around the 170 range maybe tad more peak.
[Editor Rob: I liked him actually more in the serious roles like Good will hunting, insomnia, dead poets, one hour photo.]

Yes, Good Willing Hunting, but for me I think my favourite might be Awakenings. Patch Adams too I thought was a very underrated film and not sure why the critics hated it so much. He was on top of his game in Good Morning Vietnam, a classic too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/15
I was always stunned by his lesser stature. His very larger than life personality always added to the illusion of more height.

I'm still can't believe he's gone though.
5'9.5'' said on 27/Apr/15
Consistently looked taller than a flat 5'7'' in his younger days, he likely just rounded down from 5'7.75'' but of course in his later days age, alcohol and his numerous health problems caused a more than average height loss likely putting him around 5'6.5''
Danimal said on 28/Feb/15
Was close to 5'8" at his peak. Was clearly taller than a 5'7" Billy Crystal in the 1980's. Both men lost height in their 60's.
the shredder said on 28/Feb/15
It is possible he was closer to 5 '8
jamie179cm said on 1/Dec/14

Anon said on 7/Oct/14
He was taller than Billy Crystal, maybe 5'8" in his prime.
The shredder said on 21/Aug/14
Rob was 5'7 to 5'8 possible in his prime?
Lorne said on 19/Aug/14
I don't think he was less than 170cm, he was a guy who didn't hold military posture or anything.
mike said on 18/Aug/14
Robin Williams height: 5ft 7.5in (171 cm)
R.I.P. one of the greatest Actors of all time. He will will truly be missed...
Andrea said on 16/Aug/14
Yeah, shredder... Just search Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve images: there's noway there were 9 inches between them! I'd say more 7-8 at most! There are recent pictures with Brandon Routh, a real solid 189 guy, who makes him look no more than 5'6 but of course he shrunk during last years...
the shredder said on 16/Aug/14
He claimed 5'8 on one of the tonight shows , but also the 5'7 on top and a few years ago joke saying he is 5'6.
the shredder said on 16/Aug/14
Reeve was Shorter than 6'3.5 Chevy Chase , Reeve was 6'2.75
Andrea said on 15/Aug/14
If Reeve was really near 6'4, Robin was between 5'8 and 5'9, no less!

lee said on 15/Aug/14
He was 170cm- 5'7, He Probably was 5'6 in his later years- May he RIP, enjoyed him as an actor- I enjoyed Dead Poets scoiety but he had a load of great films
Arch Stanton said on 14/Aug/14
Never 5 ft 8 Callum, consistently looked in that 169-170 sort of range.
JAMES said on 14/Aug/14
Did Robin ever claim 5'8, I thought he could have been about that in his prime but a strong 5'7 might be more accurate who knows, What was his favourite film for you guys- I always love Good Will Hunting and Mrs Doubtfire they were good, I even watched Jack again the other day, Great actor, RIP
Lorne said on 13/Aug/14
Unbelievable. RIP, Robin.
Nikie said on 13/Aug/14

R.I.P. Great actor and comedian.

I'll be having a Robin Williams film fest over the next few days. He lit up so many faces and made a lot of people happy is the irony in all of this.
Sam said on 13/Aug/14
So sad...I know a bit about how low you can get, tough that one of the most loved celebs couldn't see his way out.
callum said on 13/Aug/14
Rob, What do yu think is the most Robin Williams could have been 5ft 8 in his younger days or just the 5ft7, He might have been 5ft6 range in his later years,

reast in peace! ... he was a good actor.
R.I.P. Robin WIlliams said on 12/Aug/14
Why? He's 5'7", he said so, it's not an honor to change his height, only in the eyes of an insecure person.
jamieorr4 said on 12/Aug/14

sean5 said on 11/Aug/14
RIP great actor, always will remember him in mrs Doubtfire
the shredder said on 4/Jul/14
He is taller than Sean Astin around 01 , He was still 5'7 to about then. He looks 5'6 now.
Adamz said on 2/Jul/14
i think 170cm peak is generous. possibly 169 PEAK MORNING.
The Master said on 24/Jun/14
Yes, I agree. 5'7.5" peak.
the shredder said on 23/Jun/14
The Master , He claimed 5'7 , 5'8 and 5'6 , He most likely was 5'7.5 in 80's and 90's.
The Master said on 23/Jun/14
Er, sorry, I meant an inch.
The Master said on 22/Jun/14
shredder: Strangly seem 5 '8 in awakenings

I always thought he was 5'8". He always has at least an in on Billy Crystal.
the shredder said on 19/Jun/14
Was watching Hook 1991 on Netflix a few days ago and notice that his ID had Peter Banning at 5'11 172 lbs lol. Shows that you can't judge height listings in movies because it is based on the character , not the Actor.
the shredder said on 7/Jun/14
Strangly seem 5 '8 in awakenings
the shredder said on 5/Jun/14
He claim 5'6 and 5'7 and and 5'8. 5 '8 is too much , 5'7.5 Maybe peak ,
Realist said on 2/Jun/14
Rob, whatever his height is one thing i must say he is probably the most convincing comedian since Chaplin. He knows how to comment. But not as sarcastic as Chaplin. I really like this guy and id say 171 cm minimum peak. He always looked low average to me. With Robert Sean Leonard and Ethan Hawke he didnt look very shot either.
Realist said on 23/May/14
Rob his current height needs an upgrade to about 5'6.5, his peak was more 171.5.
Great comedian, one of the greatest since Chaplin in my opinion.
@Richie: DeNiro was probably 5'8.5 in his peak and 5'8 now.
the shredder said on 4/Dec/13
Rob , how tall does the Actor Dante Basco appear with him and Hoffman? I say 5'4 there , he was in his teens there.

[Editor Rob: he certainly doesn't look more than 5ft 4 there, but in teens probably grew some more yeah.]
Mike T said on 28/Oct/13
Perhaps 172 at peak, Rob?
richie said on 17/Oct/13
Robin Williams is 5ft 8in,he was an inch shorter than DeNiro in Awakenings.

Robin Williams is 5ft 8in, he was an inch shorter than DeNiro in The Awakenings.
James Crowley Maximus Meridius said on 31/Aug/13
Rob is there a chance robin williams was 5ft 8in in his younger days 5ft 7in could be his height now he needs an upgrade i'm pretty sure he was more 5ft 8in than 5ft 7in when he was younger now in his later years he is at least 5ft 7in.
[Editor Rob: I think he can look just 5ft 6 last few years]
taller than Robin said on 18/Aug/13
I met Robin at the MGM in Las Vegas I stand 5.6 on a good day, I was taller than him.
Hannon Amos said on 4/Jul/13
I doubt he was ever over 5'7". The real-life Patch Adams(who has met Williams) is listed as 6'5" and once quipped that Robin was a foot shorter than himself.
marcus said on 22/May/13
He made fun of me at close range once - not a pleasant experience - 5'7" seems right
R4v3nh34rt said on 15/May/13
wow this has changed quite recently. He's always been listed at 5'8". Is this only based on the interview? May he be incorrect?
butterfly said on 16/Apr/13

Hullywood 1.75.5m said on 31/Jan/13
Looked 1.73.5 next to your 1.75m Robert de Niro in a movie that called, i belive, Awaking, in english. Movie was filming in 1990. I think de Niro is taller then 1.75m.
RCA said on 27/Jan/13
He is no taller than 5' 3". I met him and stood next to hiim during the filming of The Fisher King. He had sneakers on, like keys.
miko said on 18/Jan/13
Rob, I've just seen a picture of him with 'The G' and he's looking under 5'6 today.

[Editor Rob: let's not give G visitors ;)]
juju said on 13/Jan/13
hes claimed 5 foot 6 back in 2009. even when he was younger he was shorter than 5 foot 7ish steven spielberg in the early 90s. i think hes always been in the 5 foot 6 range.
gaz said on 10/Jan/13
