About Richard Gere's Real Height

Richard Gere has never appeared that tall in his movies. You can say that he is of average height. His height is listed anywhere from 5 feet 9 inches to right up to 5’11” on the internet.

Cindy Crawford who is 5 feet 9 inches tall, once said to Howard Stern in 2000 that Gere was of her height -- 5'9"-5'10."

And added: "Well, if you ask him, he might be a little taller."

After taking a careful look at Richard Gere, with the likes of Julia Ormond (5'6"), Julia Roberts (5'8"), Cindy Crawford (5'9"), and Mel Gibson (5'9½" in his prime), we think Richard might have been close to 5’10” in his prime -- just as tall as someone like Matt Damon.

Though it seems that he has lost some height with age – it happens, mainly due to dehydration and compression of the spine with age.

The height of Richard Gere in his prime was

5 ft 10 in (178 cm)

His present height is

5 ft 9 (175 cm)

I don't regret anything. Everything happens for a reason it's part of the healing process. Life is a healing process.
