Kurt Russell Height

When you think you're good, you will play at that level. If you doubt yourself, you will play like crap.

Great actor, Kurt Russell has amazed and enthralled us with his performances in a wide variety of movies such as Escape from New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Tango & Cash, Vanilla Sky, Death Proof, The Hateful Eight, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, etc.

About Kurt Russell's Real height

Kurt Russell's height is something of a mystery. Over his long and illustrious career, his height has been described as 5'9", 5'10", 5'10", and even 5'11" to name a few numbers.

Kurt has also been speculated to be even as short as 5'6",  and in the Soldier movie, his height was listed as 189 cm (6'2½").

And to his credit, Kurt has indeed managed to look just as big or small, goofy or scary -- as the role required.

In Escape from New York, he looked like a buff guy.

In Tequila Sunrise he appeared taller than Mel Gibson.

In Tango and Cash barefoot and butt naked, Kurt Russell and Slyvester Stallone appeared to be the same height.

All of these observations bothered us so much that we decided to get to the bottom of the mystery for once and all.

We carefully studied Kurt Russell's vertical measurements and compared his height to that of Tom Cruise (5'7¾"), Mark Wahlberg (5'8"), Sylvester Stallone (5'9"), Mel Gibson, and many more such interesting people.

Now we think Kurt was somewhere between 5'9" to 5'10" tall in his prime.

But he could be expected to lose some height with age now that he has been in his 70s -- or not. We have to say that he is holding his height remarkably well for his age, unlike say a big guy Arnold Schwarzenegger who has lost several inches -- went from 6'1½" to 5'11".

The height of Kurt Russell is

5 ft 9¼ in (176 cm)
