How tall is Rod Stewart ?

Home :: About  Latest :: Comments :: Top 50 

Rod Stewart's Height is 5ft 10in (178 cm)

English (with Scottish allegiance) singer best known for songs such as Tonight's the Night, Maggie May and Da Ya Think I'm Sexy. He used to get terrible press about being a midget. I guess being with tall ladies like Rachel Hunter and Penny Lancaster didn't help, although he doesn't seem to bother, once saying "I don't mind if a girl I go with is taller than me, because it means she has long legs, and that's IT for me."

On the Parkinson tv chat show he even showed a newspaper once, complaining about this public perception that he's a miniscule 5ft 5, when in fact he's more 5ft 10 range. In fact he has been quoted giving his height as both 5ft 10 and 11.

Comment on the Height of Rod Stewart

cgf said on 24/Nov/15
I saw him in a hotel in New York 2 years ago, and I can't even understand how can somebody think that he is 5-10. I am 5-9 and he was remarkably shorter than me: 5-6 I'd say he is.
CarbSnarfer said on 19/Aug/15
He did a dancing skit with Fallon a year or so ago and looked about an inch shorter than the 5-11ish Fallon, so the above height is correct.
Matthew said on 13/Jul/15
He can look much shorter than 5'10" on this occasion: Click Here
Here he is looking very similar to Carlos Santana: Click Here
Although he's got Sly Stallone: Click Here

Maybe a weak 5'10" fits better than the full 5'10"?
About 5 10 said on 11/Jul/15
There's no question that this guy wears lifts on some occasions though. He actually looks about 5' 11" in 2015 at age 70! He's looking taller than ever. Look at him with Prince Charles and Simon Cowell at this year's Prince's Trust event for example. He could be a legit 5' 10" though. There is no way he is "short" though, that's absolute nonsense!
6'1" Joe said on 19/Jun/15
This guy is 5'10", was probably 5'11" in his peak years. I understand how annoying it is for someone who's taller than the average guy and getting called short every time. Blame it on his linking for taller women lol. Not a single girl he has dated in the past 40 years has been shorter than 5'11",
Phil K said on 23/May/15
I walked past Rod when he was with a very tall girl in Newcastle city centre (I was going to work) and 5 ft 10 he is NOT. I was taller, and I'm not 5 10
swbo101 said on 8/Apr/15
I met Rod Stewart and I'm 5'10", I easily towered over him. He's 5'6" tops.
Sean5 said on 4/Apr/15
It's similar to Tom Cruise myth that he's short when 5'10 is still surely above average in the Uk still? Why do people do it? Is it to get the celebrities feel insecure about themselves or trying to get a reaction out of them?
slick said on 9/Mar/15
rod was 180 in his younger days. Ive worked back stage with him he is around 178 today
Parker said on 19/Feb/15
Yep, the media is extremely powerful. +5 years ago Rod was actually being listed at 5'5 on many sites.He was so annoyed he actually went on Parkinson with a Newspaper article to refute the claims haha. Similar to Cruise, the media would have you believe he's 5'3.
[Editor Rob: the thing with Cruise is that some journalists have met him and been Annoyed that he looked 5ft 8 and so they take the hump.]
Almost 5 10 said on 15/Feb/15
Rod Stewart's really had quite a time of it over the years, on the height front. Almost as bad as Cruise! He really is 5' 10". I've compared him with loads of celebs. Just goes to show the influence the media can have on people, doesn't it! I mean, if people believe he's only 5' 5", then lord knows what else in the world they believe to be true...
[Editor Rob: I'd probably get a bit annoyed at some of those articles that called him 5ft 5 because it got picked up by some other papers and they have ran with it aswell.]
lelman said on 21/Sep/14
Parker, he's wearing heeled dress shoes and she's in flats, and to be honest I do see a near 3 inch difference between them, don't be fooled by his hair. I can't see him above 5' 10" nowadays, maybe in his prime he could have been close to 5' 11" though.
Spirit Level said on 12/Aug/14
I'm not disputing him being 5' 10". But I'd be very surprised if he measured 5' 11" barefoot, Parker. As I said, he can pull off looking 5' 11" but that's when he wears his distinctive heeled footwear - or when Penny stoops slightly. He may actually wear them just because he likes that type of shoe and they suit him - as opposed for height gain.
Parker said on 10/Aug/14
@spirit level
Why would he give a rats backside whether he was 5'10 or 5'11.? I watched a documenatary last night,they had some footage of him playing football from his younger days - really long legs. He looked every inch 5'11 to me.

Most shots with his 6'1 wife she has significant heels on, but on the odd occasion she isn't there doesn't look a 3 inch difference IMO.

Spirit Level said on 10/Aug/14
5' 10" peak height. Could often look taller with bigger heeled footwear, so I can see why he claims 5' 11".
Don Geiger said on 10/May/14
I used to own BESTIES in Hermosa Beach, CA, I was 6'2" and stood between Rod and George several times. George who I saw many, many times was 5'6, max 5'7. Rod was an easy 5'10-11 in street heeled shoes.
Parker said on 25/Apr/14
Claims 5'11 in his autobiography.
Parker said on 18/Apr/14
Here's Rod with his 6'1 wife. You cannot see her shoes, but lets assume she's barefoot, certainly she must be in footwear that gives virtually no height gain.

Rod cannot be under 5'10
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/14
LOL. Missy you've picked the worst possible photo for comparison!!! Her in heels and him on lower curb. If you seem them together in flats on level ground she looks a little over 3 inches taller only. I'd guess 5'9.5".
Cliff said on 13/Jan/14
He looks 6 inches shorter than wife in the above pic, but she has got 4" heels on.
Also in a paper article it was talking about his amazingly slim figure at 12and a half stone. So that is only a slim weight if you are tall enough to carry it off. If he was short at that weight, he would be obese.
He only looks an inch shorter than Piers as well, but taking into consideration Morgan probably isn't standing bolt upright.
So I think 5ft10 sounds right, no complaints. Good on Rod for not exaggerating his height.

Here's Rod with his 6'1" wife. She's actually got bend knees here.

Which makes me think that he's probably 5'8" & George Best was probably 5'6"
Cliff said on 12/Jan/14
Such differing estimates for Rod, but he doesn't look short in any pics I see of him. I mean he looks 6inches shorter than his wife in the above pic, but she is wearing 4inch heels, and he looks maybe an inch shorter than Piers, but I take into account Piers probably isn't standing bolt upright.
But in the paper today it was talking about how slim he was at 12 and a half stone, and that isn't that slim unless you are pretty tall.
So I would say 5ft10 is about right.
Parker said on 16/Jun/13

Here's Rod with 6' listed Piers Morgan

Looks max 2 inches shorter to me. Should put to bed the absurd 5'6 comments.
[Editor Rob: I can understand why it annoys Rod, being called 5ft 5 or whatever and knowing fine well he's near 5ft 10]
Craig 177 said on 12/Jun/13
I'd bet top dollar on 178 cm, back in the '70s. And 176 cm now.

It's what I call 'The Bon Jovi Effect'. Rod still manages to look 5' 10.5", by wearing thick heeled boots - although they do suit him style wise.

I'm 5' 9.75" and trust me, I do the same to look nearer 5' 11" on some occasions...
conehead44 said on 8/Jun/13
Saw him at Anglo Saxon barns in Bolton lancs UK in 1968
Stood next to him in the interval along with long john baldry
Same height as me 5ft 10 ins no more no less
Long john towered over us both ..
Rich said on 8/Jun/13
I was in an elevator with
Rod Stewart and I think you can see his feet in his driver's license picture. He can't be more than 5'6".
Parker said on 18/May/13
Taller than Alan Carr (listed 5'9) last night
5'10 and change IMO.
Parker said on 26/Mar/13
truth178cm says on 15/Feb/13
weak 5ft9/strong 5ft8. 5ft10 is a bit too much.

Nah- Had an easy 2 inches on Denis Law pictured in the 70's (pic of Denis with Rob on this site)

THE REAL ANNONYMOUS said on 25/Dec/12
He is no shorter than 5'10, probably 5'10.5
Worked security back stage, and walked him to and off of stage. Was within 1 foot of him at times.
No shorter than 5'10.
Illena said on 28/Nov/12
I saw him at a concert and he looked around 5'9-5'10.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Nov/12

Yeah 5'9.5" currently I'd say.
norfield said on 25/Oct/12
Looked close to Jimmie Fallon's height just now, so 5-10ish sounds right, looked like he was wearing fairly normal shoes.
Parker said on 24/Oct/12
Saw a pic next to his wife in flats in a UK newspaper today. Not less than 5'10, could be 5'11.

I worked back stage security on Rod Stewart's dressing room (in 98 or 99 I think) and I don't care what anyone says He is TINY! I am only 5 foot 2 inches and he seemed small to ME! He is no where near 5'9'' ( My Husband is 5 foot 9 inches my Father is 5 foot 9 inches)I'd say MAYBE 5'6'' He is just a very petite man.

No offence but if he was 5 ft 6 Kelly Jones form the phonics is struggling with 5'0". He's near 5 ft 10 but for some reason always gives off a short impression, doesn't help having a 6 ft 1 wife in heels..
Matt Hopper said on 12/Jun/12
I meet him some years back. We shared flight from LA to Auckland NZ. He was sitting just next row. Thought this guy lookes like Rod Steward but then I noticed Penny and the rest of the clan. We walked around with no shoes on. I am 172 cm, a strong 5'7, but he had almost twon inches on me. A good 5'9 flat.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 6/Feb/12
If he really is 5'10, her wife is no less than 6'2, more like 6'2.5!
glenn said on 15/Jul/07
rod has a horrendous slouch.he is 5-10 to 5-11.i saw him in slippers and sandals.he has given me a 5-9 impression with the slouch too.
anon said on 14/Jul/07
my boyfriend met rod stewart when he was doing lighting for one of his concerts, he's a little under 6' (with his steel toe caps maybe 6'1") and said he towered over rod when he was talking to him... keifer sutherland was backstage watching him too (and he's supposedly 5'8.5") but according to my boyfriend noticably taller than rod. in his opinion rod would be nearer 5'8", or, like he said, barely taller than me 5'6.5".
Anonymous said on 20/May/07
Is Penny Lancaster really 6'1? because next to 6'1.25 Michael Caine she doesn't look much taller (asuming she's wearing heels) and he isn't reallycloser to the camera. I say she's 6 feet even. And Rod Stewart I think is 5'9.5.

mhawk said on 29/Mar/07
i met rod stewart at four season hotel after key arena concert. seattle wa. (1999)
i thought rod stewart was a short. he's more like 5'ft 8 inches
glenn said on 15/Mar/07
yes,actually.penny lancaster is 6-4.
Pete said on 15/Mar/07
he says hes 5-11 but people think hes shorter cuz he dates very tall women. He does look short on tv and pics tho'. if he was 5-11 he would be 6 feet with shoes and 6-1 if wearing cowboy boots and he surely does not look 6-1 at all. So women he dates are 6-3 at least? I dont think so!
Tallyrand said on 15/Mar/07
5-10'er. Take it to the bank...
Ben said on 14/Mar/07
Rod has really long legs and of course his hair adds a few inches... I'd peg him around 5'10" in his flats
Viper said on 12/Mar/07
I cant beleive the estimations for this guy. From 5-5 to 6-1.
glenn said on 12/Mar/07
5-11 he is.
miles smiles said on 12/Mar/07
In a recent British GQ article, Rod says one of the biggest misconceptions about him is that he's short. "I'm 5-11", he says.
12july said on 18/Feb/07
yeah right hes tiny 5-6 tops
DocHolliday said on 6/Dec/06
I worked security for one of his concerts last year, and met both he and his then fiancee. Rod was shorter than me, so I'd put him at 5'10. Penny was every bit of 6'1, and that was in flat converse all stars.
Glenn said on 1/Nov/06
Yeah,Ian is 5-5.I kinda remember that Padraig.good point cat.
Padraig said on 31/Oct/06
Rob informs me Rod did state "I'm 5 foot 10" back in 1997 when there was some Rod impersonator trying to bed fans and he was wondering how they could be fooled by the imposter.
Anthony said on 26/Oct/06
The rest of The Faces must be really small. Rod and Woody tower over them in every photo I've seen of them. The Faces were great, really underrated.
Middle-sized Cat said on 26/Oct/06
Maybe these guys who think Stewart's 5'5" are confusing him with Steve Marriot. He WAS small. The Small Faces became The Faces when the taller Stewart and Wood joined.
Anthony said on 16/Sep/06
Correct Glenn, though I have seen a few pics where Mick looks taller than Jerry. In heels of course.
Glenn said on 16/Sep/06
Rod can look almost 5-11 at times.6ft? in 70s maybe.Jagger has that habit of making himself look shorter with taller women too.
Anthony said on 16/Sep/06
Rod's got to be at least 5'10. No way he's only 5'5. The press seems to have fun putting him as well as Jagger down heightwise. Jealous bunch of guys if you ask me.

[Editor Rob: the man likes tall women (jerry/penny/rachel), also he is I guess English but supports celtic/scotland...maybe they didn't like this in the past, I dunno]
Eye Sea said on 28/Aug/06
I'd go with 5 feet 10, but on Michael Aspel's show, Rod claimed to be 6 foot, and looked rather peeved when no-one believed him - a sign that he isn't 6 foot.
Mah said on 9/Aug/06
here's a link for a site 5'5 they hav a page ..of celebrities heights the hav him on 5'5 plzz rob hav a look cuz they hav the rest rite on spot well may not one hally berry but the rest seem rite on spot here a link 2 teh page jus click celeb heights .. Click Here

Maybe they were glass slippers!
Glenn said on 25/Apr/06
Lifts in slippers?
Frank2 said on 24/Apr/06
Rod does have great lifts!
Parker said on 24/Apr/06
Actually - I've just caught the re-run of American idol in the UK and Rod towered over most of the contestants and Ryan Seacrest - He actually looked like a 6 footer! I know he's not, as he's claimed he's almost 6 ft. - 5'11 for me
Dominic said on 23/Apr/06
Haha, the 5'5 claims make me laugh. If Rod is only 5'5 than Ryan Seacrest is 5'2 because Rod towered over him in American Idol.
Anonymous said on 19/Apr/06
Well I met Rod Stewart at his concert in Phoenix. I am exactly 5' 10" if not taller. And I got to get backstage thanks to the Rod Stewart fan club and actually got to meet him! It was great. He was my height maybe a little taller so 5' 10.5" is def a reasonable assumption. I would say more around 5' 11" would be a MORE correct assumption. And isn't it funny that "THE Chris Daughtry" says he met Rod Stewart the same day that the American Idol was shown with Rod Stewart as the special guest. Just an observation.
chris said on 18/Apr/06
he is 5"8 i met him im the chris daughtry
Glenn said on 14/Apr/06
I believe you Frank,but that is what I saw.these celebs got my tricked and confused all the yeah,I could be wrong.he always looked 5-10,5-11 to me.Ive read 5-7 in a tabloid.maybe him and SLY GUY have good shoes.but those slippers and sandles left me speechless.
Frank2 said on 14/Apr/06
Then explain the photo with Kelley. Rod is wearing huge heels and he's at the very least two inches shorter. And Kelley isn't 6'.

It's like I'm telling you people, I'd see these famous people and in some cases I'd be taller and I'm just 5'11" and don't wear shoes with heels any higher than about an inch. I'd read somehwere that so and so is 6' and then I'd see him at some event or at the studio and wouldn't you know it, he'd be shorter than me. That's not to say there's not a lot of tall actors emerging today. There are. Most are now well over 6'. This is especially true with actors who work in TV.
Glenn said on 14/Apr/06
Ive seen Rod in slippers look 5-10.
Frank2 said on 14/Apr/06
It's those boots!
Parker said on 14/Apr/06
At the risk of repeating myself, George Best was measured officially by Man Utd at 5'9 in his prime. I've seen plenty of Photo's of Rod with George and Rod ALWAYS looked several inches taller.
MHouillon said on 13/Apr/06
Yeah, Rob ! A 179cm (5'10.5") minimum for Mr. Stewart, please !

[Editor Rob: actually I do agree that he can be that...his claim is 5ft 11, he might not be that far from it...

remarkably, in all the years I've been going to Celtic matches I've yet to see Stewart up close! Whenever he is there, he always manages to sneak away...]
Glenn said on 20/Mar/06
He can look 5-11 even in slippers.
kramer said on 19/Mar/06
seen a picture beside some of his celtic player legends. He's not much smaller than 6ft2 Billy mcNeil and towers over 5ft4 jimmy johnstone. Id say 5ft 11 pretty close!
Glenn said on 19/Mar/06
If you met paul you would sing a different tune.jones appeared 5-11 to me.not sure if photo is up
MHouillon said on 18/Mar/06
Hi, Glenn. Even though it seems you met almost everyone (maybe even McCartney) I have to say, that caliming a 5'11.5" (182cm)-height for McCartney isn't a little ridicolous, but very ridicolous. How tall is Tom Jones then ? 6'1" ?

Look at pictures of Tom Jones (5'10) and Paul McCartney on Getty Images from the late 60's. Tom is clearly taller, reduce Tom's Cuban heels, then he would be still slightly taller. As he is today, remember the Linda McCartney tribute-show ? They were standing next to each other and Tom did not wear his heavy-heeled boots (picutres available) and was still a bit taller. Paul McCartney is 5'9.5". And Rod Stewart, who was standing on the stage together with Paul McCartney on the Queens jubilee in 2002, seems to be 5'10.5 (179cm).

Best wishes, Marco
Becky said on 27/Feb/06
i really have to say that Rod Stewart is really a half an inch taller than most people think he is.
Glenn said on 15/Feb/06
mcartney is 5-11 1/2.
MHouillon said on 15/Feb/06
Just saw the queens jubilee from 2002. At the end, all stars sang "All you need is love" on stage and were standing right beside each other. Rod was at least an inch taller than Ozzy Osbourne (5'9.5) and Paul McCartney (5'9.5).

5'10.5 (179cm) for Rod
TheMan said on 13/Feb/06
In that pic above i can garantee without even looking that he's got some bigshoes on to go with that suit he would have to. I stil belive he's only like 5,8 myself. He's standing infront probably bigger ground that pic IMO is bad to judge he's height on.
Viper652 said on 13/Feb/06
He does look a solid 5-10. I wonder why there are 5-5 height listings for him. That is nuts.
D. Ray Morton said on 12/Feb/06
Whatever his real height (having seen him in person, I'd go along with 5'10") and whatever the reasons for his magnetically attracting the laydeez (*cough* money, status, package *cough*)...the photo up above is an absolute classic! Look at the expression on that sucker's face. He looks like a sea monster - and in pastels, no less.
Tubbs said on 12/Feb/06
Hey Brett, he must have something about him, possibly 100million in the bank, that or he's a much bigger guy than we thought, if you know what I mean.
Brett said on 12/Feb/06
ye he looks 5'10 comfortably. What a pity he scored Penny Lancaster, and Rachel Hunter, both georgous, while he on the other hand is one of the least attractive guys Ive seen.
Glenn said on 7/Feb/06
ron is suppose to be 5-10 and a half.he looks 5-9.

what about his daugther Kim?, shes about the same size as he is?
Kal said on 4/Dec/05
If Rod Stewart is 6"0 then Penny Lancaster is 6"3/4 -- with heels on around 6"4/5 -- which is just ridiculous. He can't be any shorter than 5"8, since he would be nearer to her shoulders. So somewhere in between 5-8 to 5-11, I'm gonna go with a realistic median value of 5"9. Crikey we need some mathematicians blood around here so as to measure proportions in photographs better - I think some of us are going a little nuts.
CelebHeights Editor said on 3/Dec/05
Penny Lancaster (his current partner) in 2004:
"My legs. They were measured on TV the other day and they're four feet long. I'm 6ft 1in, the same height as my brother. But it wasn't until I started modelling at 17 and put on my first pair of high heels that I felt comfortable with my height. Rod likes a long-legged girl, as everyone knows, and, no, he couldn't care less that I'm taller than him"
Palm Beach said on 17/Nov/05
I have met Sir. Stewart here in Palm Beach on multiple occasions and have several photos to attest to his height (in flat sandals) at no less than 5'10" - 5'11".
CelebHeights Editor said on 8/Oct/05
His current ladyfriend Penny Lancaster. Always gets listed as 6ft 1 in magazines etc and actually looks it. Nevertheless, Crawfords Agency only gives her 183cm.
CelebHeights Editor said on 6/Oct/05
His daughter, Kimberly Stewart said her height as '5ft 10' on an Aussie radio show. I don't even think she's that...
TheMan said on 23/Sep/05
Stewarts not even 5,10 lol. More like 5,8 5,9 at a push. George best is 5,7 read it in the paper making rod only 5,8 5,9. He just doesnt look tall actually he looks short and that was before he went out with penny.
Mr. R said on 22/Sep/05
Ronnie, you are right. This guy is all over the place. I saw him in New York years ago, and he was taller than expected - I would say 5-10 is pretty close. Why people see him shorter or taller is a matter of whether he meets their expectations. If he is taller than expected, he gest seen as 6 foot. If he's shorter than expected, he gets pegged at 5-7.
Ronnie Wood said on 22/Sep/05
How can there be so many varying heights for Rod? Surely it's hard to get someone who's a six footer mistaken for a 5'7 guy, and vice versa. Whats going on here. Is there any explanation for this?
Parker said on 29/Aug/05
There's an article in the centre pages of the Daily Mirror today on short men and Taller women. Its not bad on the height estimations in my opinion, apart from Rod (they have him at 5'7) and Penny Lancaster 6'1. All I will say is they have a photograph of the two. Penny's got two inch min heels on, and Rod's eyes are level with her chin (5 ins shorter?) Rob - I think you've got his height bang on if Penny really is 6'1.

[Editor Rob: well...Penny looks close in height to those Tim henman pics on getty. About Rod - press must have it in for him. I mean 5ft 7 from the Mirror and 5ft 5 from the Daily Mail! No wonder when he appeared on parkinson he was fuming about it ;)]
CelebHeights Editor said on 22/Aug/05
From gossip group: "I've met Rod Stewart and he's about 5'8"...and all the times I've seen him he wasn't wearing elevator shoes. There's no way he's as short as 5'5".
Parker said on 8/Aug/05
Rod Stewart is certainly not shorter than 5'10. There are plenty of photographs in George Best's bio that show them in sneakers. Rod has at least 2 inches on 5'8/5'9 George.
MHouillon said on 28/Jun/05
5'5" is ridiculous, and 6'0" - 6'1" is it, too. Rod Stewart is a clear 5'10". Compared to his 6'1"-girl Penny Lancaster that seems accurate.

A standard mid-sixties-Paul-McCartney-Tom-Jones-Mick-Jagger-Ozzy-Osbourne-pop/Rockstar-height.

[Editor Rob: yeah, papers cannot be trusted with height information, i.e. 'the 5ft 8 Kate Winslet' etc...]
kimo said on 26/Jun/05
Rod was in town a couple of weeks ago on tour. I work event security at the Arena the concert was in. I have the privelige of working with the stars head of security, so i get to work very closely with the stars. I was surprised at how tall Rod was. He is 6ft and maybe even 6'1 He had no heel to speak of on his shoe.
CelebHeights Editor said on 17/Jun/05
I see again the Daily Mail had a wee 'short men' page today and they're still giving poor Rod 5ft 5 inches!
Chris said on 5/Jun/05
A friend of mine saw Rod Stewart today here in Stockolm. He works as a watchman in a fancy place and in walked Rod Stewart. He know that if he see a famous person he will stand so close so he can judge their height and then tell me about it:) He said that Mr Stewart was wearing boots, and with his boots he was 5'11''. He was as talI as my friend who is 5'10 and 5'11'' with normal shoes. Because Rod had theese big boots on Im positive he is no more than 5'9''.

I think this listing is pretty accurate, maybe a tad high. I saw him years ago in a drugstore in Greenwich Village. He walked past me, but he was wearing boots. I would say that he was between 5-9 and 5-10!

A guy I used to work with met Rod in the South of France a few years ago. He's about 6'0", and said he was surprised how tall Rod was. He said he was around the 6'0" mark, maybe taller

I saw hom at royal ascot, 5'7 and his women exaagerate their height to make him seem taller.

I think you are virtually spot on. I would put him at about 5'11. I am a big George Best fan and in a couple of his biographies he has photographs of himself standing next to Rod Stewart. George is officiaally listed at 175cm (5'9") on the Manchester United club site. In the photographs, Rod has at least 2 inches on him.
