About Willem Dafoe's Real Height

Willem Dafoe has never looked tall in his movies though for some reason he doesn't look short either. But make no mistake, he is short.

Google lists Willem's height as 5 feet 9 inches. There, we think Google needs some human touch because Willem Dafoe is nowhere near that.

If you watch the original Spiderman movie carefully, you will notice that Willem is actually shorter than Tobey Maguire and Tobey is just 5’8”.

After comparing Willem Dafoe’s height to some more people like Christoph Waltz (5’7¼”), Oscar Isaac (5’8”), and Matt Damon (5’10”), we think Willem Dafoe might just be the most intimating 5’7” man in the movie industry.

The height of Willem Dafoe is

5 ft 7 in. (170 cm)

How to tell a good movie?

Turn off the sound in a movie, and if you can tell what's going on, the movie should work.

On his unconventional looks.

I guess they often cast me as the bad guy, because I'm not, er, conventional-looking. I look sort of violent. I'm the odd one out, the outsider.
