Val Kilmer Height

"My perception is that I've never done anything but work really hard."

~ Val Kilmer

Fine actor, Val Kilmer is known for starring in movies such as Top Secret!, Top Gun, Willow, The Doors, True Romance, Batman Forever, among many others.

Peter MacGregor-Scott (producer of Batman Forever) described Val Kilmer in SFX Magazine #3, August 1995:

"Val is a big fella -- he is six foot one, six-two, and around 200 pounds -- so he really looks the part too."

Though we aren't that sure about Val being 6-feet-1 inches to 6-feet-2 inches tall. The most we could have guessed for his height is flat-six feet. He looked around 4 inches taller than a barely 5-feet-8 inches tall Tom Cruise in Top Gun.

A few other such height comparisons with some other celebrities made our impression stronger of Val being not above 6 feet tall.

And what is more, it appears that Val and Christian Bale (the six feet tall Batman from Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy) are the same sizes as well because Bale wore Kilmer's bat suit for the Batman Begins audition -- it fitted him well.

Though due to age and health issues, Val Kilmer appears to be a bit shorter now.

The height of Val Kilmer is

5'11" or 180 cm

Height in prime was 6"
