About Roman Polanski's Real Height

Roman Polanski is renowned for being short, just like another great director -- Martin Scorsese who is only 5 feet 2 inches tall.

Roman once mentioned his height as 5 feet 6 inches. But most of the internet lists his height as 5'3" or 5'4" instead -- and for a very good reason, we think.

From what we have seen of Roman Polanski we think he may have been 5 feet 4 inches tall when he was young but is definitely shorter today -- probably closer to 5'3" now.

This makes Roman around 5 inches shorter than his beautiful wife Emmanuelle Seigner who is 5'8".

The real height of Roman Polanski is

5 ft 3 in (160 cm)

Height in his prime was

5 ft 4 in (162.5 cm)

The infamous movie legend: Roman Polanski

You have to show violence the way it is. If you don't show it realistically, then that's immoral and harmful. If you don't upset people, then that's obscenity.

~ Roman Polanski

Every failure made me more confident. Because I wanted even more to achieve as revenge, to show that I could.
