How tall is Kevin Costner? Actor 'never dated at all' in high school because of his height

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kevin Costner is reportedly 6ft 1 inch (1.85 m/ 185 cm) tall, which contributes heavily to his impressive personality.

However, once he claimed himself to be just 6ft (1.82 m/ 182 cm) tall.

The topic of Costner’s height came up in an interview in the past. According to Celeb Heights, he said, “Maybe I'm 6-feet and I'm white and I'm a leading man and have all the perks that go with that.”

Costner has gained acclaim as an actor and a director and producer. He told The Spectator in 2001, “When I was in high school, I was 5-foot-4."

He continued, “My mother promised me I would grow. By the time I was in my second year at California State University in Fullerton, I was 6-foot-1.”

He further said, “The fact that I was 5ft 2 as a sophomore didn't help. I'm 6ft 1 now but still relate to those feelings. I didn't date in high school and didn't get my growth until college. I never got over being short.”

“The reality is that I'm over 6 feet, Caucasian and I have blue eyes. I know that somewhere along the line I'll probably be cast as a romantic lead," he said, recalling his younger days.

"But I prefer to take the most interesting role possible, even if it's a smaller one,” Costner added.

The ‘Yellowstone’ star also spoke about his love life. He stated, “I never dated at all. I was a small kid, a real late bloomer, and it was embarrassing with girls who were all taller than me.”

What is Kevin Costner's ethnicity?

Costner is of English, Welsh, Scottish, German and Irish descent.

Is Kevin Costner's daughter in ‘Yellowstone’?

Costner's daughter has not worked in ‘Yellowstone’. Kelly Reilly plays Costner's on-screen daughter in the drama series.

Why did Kevin Costner quit ‘Yellowstone’?

Hello! reported in July that Costner’s reason for leaving the show was his upcoming film, ‘Horizon’.

Costner posted online, “We're deep into the production of #HorizonFilm. I have to tell you, I haven't felt this way about a movie since we were making Dances with Wolves. Can't wait to share it with all of you.”
