Carrie Fisher height: 5ft 1in (155 cm)

American actress best known for her iconic role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films. In an interview with Madonna in 1991 she talked about her height: "At my height, I'd like to boss a group of men around. I'm five one and a half, and it's incredibly important to me. Except that I stoop, which is attractive. I have one of those dowager's bumps; it's from reading when I was a kid". Earlier than that she also said: "I'm 5'1" and my legs end almost right after they start. People think I'm taller. I meet people and they say, 'You're soooo short' as if I didn't know this fact". This photo (by Chantelle) is from a London Film Con in 2014, she had about 0.5in more footwear than me this day.

@Hunchback Isometric exercises. Such as:

press your tongue against the roof of your mouth, and while doing that, press the back of your neck into a wall. Hold this tension for a minute. (Yes, your tongue is connected to your frontal neck muscles).

You'll be standing straighter in no time.

@ yenz: What sort of exercises?

Had such a crush on her as a youngster after seeing Star Wars at the cinema. Didnt realise she was this tiny. Good things small packages right?.

I think Star Wars is the movie with the greatest height differences between the main actors, it was over a meter difference between the highest actor Peter Mayhew / Chewbacca, and the lowest actor Kenny Baker / R2-D2.

I really loved princess leia's gold bikini, but I hope she skips the bikini in Star Wars 7, something tells me that would not be the same ;-)

Her father was a shrimp and Debbie below average.

Rob did Carrie say to you that she is definitely going to be in Star Wars Episode 7? the old cast are back aswell right?
[Editor Rob: I never had time to really speak to her, but of course she is in it, since she was based in England for a while filming with others like mark/harrison. How much they are in it is a big question...]

As a Star Wars fan, I'm so jealous of you, Rob! :) 5'1'' is a reasonable listing for Carrie Fisher.
Mike says on 4/Dec/14
Could be 5ft 0.5 now.
jewel says on 4/Dec/14
is she related to isla fisher?
the shredder says on 3/Dec/14
standing up I see 5'1.5 , so 0.5 footwear over Rob makes her 5'1.
Arch Stanton says on 3/Dec/14
I only found out recently she's Debbie Reynold's daughter LOL.

You know that a dowager's hump exists because of muscular imbalance. She could do isometric exercises for the neck, and start standing straight within a week.

I see so many people standing shorter than they could, all because of that hump. Its muscular imbalance, I tell you.

Nice Rob glad you finally have Carrie listed on the site, how old is she Rob? i heard shes somewhere in her mid 50s or something and could she be more 5ft 0.5 today?

This is 2014. You can search her name online and find out her age without Rob having to do it for you buddy.
Connor183 says on 2/Dec/14
What kind of dog was it Rob?
[Editor Rob: like a french bulldog]
Connor183 says on 2/Dec/14
Rob yeah i thought she was in her 50's and yeah she does look older though like 60 something, since shes not far off from her 60's do you think its possible she might be a fraction under 5ft 1 now?

What was Carrie like in person Rob?
[Editor Rob: yes it's possible but harder to tell as I think she generally - as she said in the quote above - holds any great posture. She had a dog in this photoshoot, which was very well behaved, it was checking each person out, making sure they weren't from the bad side of the force.

I never got her auto so really couldn't say much, but she was nice with people from what I heard.]
Hypado says on 2/Dec/14
Great shot , at an opportune time with the arrival of the new movie.

155cm.
Connor183 says on 2/Dec/14
Rob you didn't answer my question.
[Editor Rob: late 50's now, I think she is somebody who can look a bit older and walk a bit more 'frail' than her age suggests]

She has a photo with you rob?
[Editor Rob: yes and fortunately no dog - in the afternoon at that event she sat down and had her dog on the stool and whilst I love dogs myself, there were a few people who didn't like the idea and it's understandable. You want a photo with carrie fisher, not carrie and her dog. Unless the dog was dressed as Yoda, THEN I'd have got it!]

Might have spoken to someone who resembled me at a past event- that's the first time I've seen you or her in person. Only just started attending these kinds of events this year- and being currently in uni I have to curtail the budget, so only two or so every year as it stands. You may see me at 2015's LFCC though (as long as it's not as congested at this year's was...)

I'd just assumed from what you said on Natalie Dormer's page about her dog being in the photoshoot that you met her on the Sunday (people mentioned something about that on the forum) I didn't see it anywhere in the Saturday shoot I went to, although you may have attended a later one (I went to the one at 12am, with about 7 other photo ops and multiple VQ's it was a chaotic schedule- and I still didn't manage to meet Milo Ventimiglia or Juliet Landau in the end...)

On the subject of her height, though, do you believe she may have lost a little at age 57? In person she looked considerably shorter than my mother, who is 5'3", even with a slight footwear advantage over me. Jenna Coleman gave off a noticeably taller impression to me that day as well... Maybe 5'0.5 in 2014?
[Editor Rob: maybe Jenny did confuse you with someone else, I think I've spoken to several who have visited this site at recent cons.

yes Carrie probably lost half an inch by now, she looked a bit older than I thought, I mean in terms of her walk/posture etc. I was pretty near the front after gold passes I think...the dog was still there when I got mine, maybe it got fed up and had a wander at some point ;)

the capacity of that hall is like 11,000 - at times there were 20,000+ inside, it was way too busy to be as enjoyable as I hoped. But then it's been as packed before, they used to only hire half of the hall a few years back! If you are a newbie though, that Saturday of lfcc would have been overwhelming and put you off the things...

@Rob, so am I to assume you only managed to get a photo on the Sunday, when she sat down for her shoot? I know you don't host third-party photos anymore, but I got a photo with her on Saturday, when she stood, if it's any help to you: (hope the link works)

I'm 6'0" by the way. I was wearing boots, I can't provide a photo of the exact pair I had on, but they were a similar style to this: Click Here
I'd estimate they'd give about 1.5 inches? Anyway, Carrie had on small Cuban-style heels, something like this: Click Here
If I had to guess I'd say she probably had at least 1/2 inch more footwear than me? What do you think, anyway?
[Editor Rob: glad you managed to get her, I don't think your boots would give that much more than an inch...although Jenny said to me after I got Michael that she thought we'd spoken to you briefly at another event as you looked familiar...and I certainly haven't spoken to any 6ft guys who visit the site for a while ;) I will keep an eye out in the future for you!

anyway, I did in fact see her the same day!]
SaveUsY2J says on 26/Jun/14
Ah. Yeah, you could see whether she's standing for photos on Saturday and then look into getting a ticket for Sunday if she does?
[Editor Rob: yes I have done that for a couple of people in the past as for me it is a waste of money, I have little interest in spending money on a photo with a celebrity sitting down :)

to be fair I once saw Gates mcFadden sitting on a Saturday and then standing on the Sunday...so it is never a guarantee and I've seen James Marsters standing then he got annoyed with some women groping him a little and said no more 'gimme a stool' to the photographer!

We'll see on the day...

SaveUsY2J says on 24/Jun/14
Will you be willing to pay the 65 for a photo, Rob?
[Editor Rob: I know she has stood at some and sat at others, but it is a lot of money for a 50/50 risk.]
Lola says on 9/May/13
Funny people tell me the same thing...You're so short! I typically answer ... Oh my God!!! I am? Oh crap...this whole time I thought I was freakishly tall. Seriously... a fact I didnt already know. I am also what I call bittersweet. It must be a short thing. haha I am nice when someone is being nice to me, but I always have my guard up ready to strike when need be.
Liver says on 30/Jan/13
