Antonio Banderas Height

Expectation is the mother of all frustration.

Famous actor, Antonio Banderas is known for his performances in movies such as "Philadelphia", "Interview with the Vampire", "Desperado", "Assassins", "The Mask of Zorro", the "Spy Kids" series, and many more.

Antonio Banderas is not tall but he gives the impression of being good-sized in his movies. In the movie "Assassins, he looked but only slightly shorter than Sylvester Stallone, who was 5 ft 9 in tall in his prime (he is a bit shorter now).

Most websites on the internet list Antonio's height as either 5'8" or 5'9". From what we have seen of him, we would have guessed his height between those two numbers.

In Interview with a Vampire, Antonio looked very close in height to Tom Cruise (5'7¾") and several inches shorter than Brad Pitt (5'11") -- which tallies well with our impression of Antonio's height. Another thing, Antonio has a disconcerting habit of wearing well-heeled shoes which sometimes make him look taller than he really is.

The height of Antonio Banderas is

5'8½" or 174 cm
