Brittany Murphy's Height
5ft 2.5in (159 cm)
American actress best remembered for roles in films such as 8 Mile, Clueless and Girl, Interrupted. She told women.com when asked what she'd change about herself, "I'd want to be really tall for a day. That's kind of a superficial thing. I'm five-foot-three"
and also "I like being carried. I'm 5 foot 3 inches and I've always been the littlest one in class"

I would loved to have been friends with Brittany. As she didn't mind being short, maybe she could have convinced me that being regularly pushed out of a queue or getting almost tripped over when someone is walking backwards is fun!
But seriously, I have accumulated a large selection of her films, which embrace many, many genres, from serious and brilliant dramas, through to comedies and horrors. I find her a very likeable girl in her films and I enjoy seeing her interviewed on the DVD 'extras'. I really would have loved to have met her! (I've read about her.)
Another shining and beautiful star taken away far too soon.

I don't think she's 5'5". Probably 5'2", my favorite height and I've dated lots of 5'2" 5'3" girls. 115lbs I think more like 105 tops.

Her official autopsy listed her as 5'5" and 115 lbs.

"not a chance that she weighed as much as 115 as has been reported somewhere"
Geez, nothing but rumors about this woman, nothing is for sure, even her height, did she actually ever exist?
What you're saying, that the authorities lie about her measurements? They could lie about what they found in her blood, or even about gunshot wounds in her body, but why lying on height and weight? For the public not to be sure of anything?

I saw an interview with the woman who directed Brittany in "Tribute" and she said that Brittany would wear high heeled shoes inside the work boots that her character was wearing, so that she could seem taller.

According to Click Here
Brittany Murphy had a "diminutive 5-foot-2 stature".

Yea I knew Brittany Murphy couldn't be too tall because she's so little. Very petite girl. I'd say she's no taller than 5'2 but I doubt she's 5'3.

wow... i just finished watching 'Uptown Girls' and i thought she was at least.... 5'6... can't believe she's only 5'2..!

come on no way is she bigger than 5.2 ! In just married Ashton .K (whos 6.2) towers way way over her, even with 4 inch boots !

i was an extra for her movie with michael douglas, "don't way a word". this girl is TINY. i'd thought she was a teen because she was so little. she is not taller than 5ft for sure without heels

At first brittany is standing in front of the picture with holly.. which makes holly taller.. if the were standing besides each other.. and secondly you don't see their heels... so you don't know if either of them are wearing heels..or perhaps.. if brittanys heels are taller than holly's..
find another pictures my friend.. you couldn't caunt on that one...
said on 13/Oct/06
Check this out she looks 1" taller than Holly...Click Here

Ok, in the picture from "MM" the heel on the shoes looks like a "kitten" heel which is like 1" to 1/2" so she could be a full 5'3" and Gleen did meet her and he said she is 5'3". :)

Brittany Murphy (2" heel) and Queen Latifah (5'9" with sneakers)
She definitely not a 5'3"
Nat said on 22/Jun/06
Maybe 5'3"ish with heels on? Her body looks too tiny for 5'3" barefoot. I'm 5'3" and my best friend is 5'8". The difference between Glenn (5'8") and Brittany is much more noticeable that my friend and I.

Glenn is big pimping.
5'3 always looked too big for her...
Glenn said on 17/Jan/06
does this one look faked too lawrence? she was 5-3.
CelebHeights Editor said on 15/Jan/06
Glenn looks like he's got a big lean, but I thought this was a younger 'paula abdul' in the pic added here ;)

Here she is with Kathy Bates, who is listed here at 5'3. Granted, it isn't a full length shot, but Brittany appears to be standing straight while Kathy is leaning back. If Brittany is a legitimate 5'3, why does she look the same height as Kathy in that pic? I'm pretty sure Brittany isn't wearing flats...
gladrunn said on 25/Oct/05
I can say for sure she's at least 5'3: once i met her at a party, i was with my mom, who is 5'2, and, even if my mom weared 3 inches heels and brittany taller ones, she towered my mother by at least 5 inches
CoolJ said on 7/Sep/05
Judging from J's pic, 5'3 does seem mighty generous. I'm thinking 5'2ish at the most.
mcfan said on 7/Sep/05
Weren't her and Holly Hunter (5'2) the same height?
smoothadora said on 13/Aug/05
but have you seen her in the film "Spun"? she is wearing highish heels throughout but she looks as though she'd be taller than 5'3.
