How Tall is he Really?

After investigating his height I believe that Keanu Reeves wakes up around 6'1" (185.4 cm) tall, falling to 6'0.75" (184.8 cm) for the majority of the day and then dropping slightly under this height by night time. 

Height Listing

Keanu is listed at Height: 6'1" (1.86 m) on Google and IMDb

Height Claim

In an interview regarding his role in the film "The Replacements" (2000), Keanu once mentioned that: "I'm six-foot-one, and I ended up weighing about 192 pounds, so I think I sort of had the body of a quarterback." (1)

What Others Say

Alike some other celebs, upon meeting Reeves in the flesh, one interviewer describes him as "Just under 180cm tall, he's dressed more stylishly than usual in a loose-fitting, white shirt and brown suit" (2)

Another interviewer describes Reeves as:

"Reeves is tall and soft looking - if he pumped up his muscles for "Speed," someone has apparently let the air out of him since." (3)

He Appears Tall in Public

Reeves is also seen as tall in public, with one interviewer commenting that: "Reeves is truly beautiful to behold. At over six feet tall, he seems to be towering above everyone else around him". (4)

Another also agrees with this, in regards to them walking to the dance floor together, saying that: 

"He takes my hand and leads me through the moving crowd. He is taller than almost everybody. People gladly make room for us." (5)

Too Tall for Roles

Keanu's tall height didn't always work to his advantage, and his height was an issue while living in Toronto.

For instance, losing a role because of his height: "The director was looking for a juvenile for a Sam Shepard play he was mounting at Toronto Free Theatre. And while Reeves turned out to be too tall for the part, Schipper recalls that he was "awed by his talent" (6)

Keanu eventually moved from Toronto to LA, as he states: "I was tired of playing the best friend, thug number one and the tall guy." (7)
