Here she is with 5'5 susan sarandon . she has heels on while susan is wearing sneakers. She looks 3 inches max taller than susan so catherine at most is a weak 5'7 or 5'6.5"

She can be 5'7.75" (172 cm).

How can she be 5'8?. She said herself she is 5'7'5". 5'7".5 is the most she could be.

I agree too, 5'8" for her peak height, 5'7" for her present height

Beautiful actress but such a huge head for so skinny body... Same Angelina Jolie, huge heads... They got their inches just in head for sure...
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jul/15
Mmm you know she really did look a good inch shorter than Cheadle, and Cheadle is defo nothing over 5 ft 7 range, 5'6.5 is possible.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jul/15
Rob can you squeeze in Traffic, The Terminal and Ocean's 12? There was a scene near the end of Traffic where she actually looked shorter than Don Cheadle...
jackie said on 19/Jun/15
And I forgot to add, she's absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful lady even in her 40's.
jackie said on 19/Jun/15
i actually thought she's always come off much taller on screen and in photos, at least 5'8, i thought. but i usually believe what's listed here is the most accurate. 5'7 is a nice height, still quite tall.
divincodino92 said on 29/Dec/13
could be 5 feet 6-6.5?
dmeyer said on 28/Dec/13
Rob i met her in heels and without as i was on the set , she isnt That tall more like 5'6.5in , whi 5'7 and a fraction , she might not even be 5'7
[Editor Rob: the 1/4 I think could be dropped yeah]

She is tall. Next to her husband when she is wearing low heel shoes there is only 2" difference and Douglas is listed at 5"10". She is tall and gorgeous doll.

Maybe 5 foot 6.

I dont think she is 171cm if justin bartha is 173cm (and he could be 1 or 2 cm shorter )

Look at this pic, she has high heels and they are same height

have you seen michael douglas lately-he looks like he shrunk 2 inches in the past 5 years!I`d say there about the same height.
Shaun said on 21/Oct/11
Very similar height range to Liz Hurley. Perfect height in my view for a woman is 5 ft 7.
Shaun said on 21/Oct/11
Rob's right she looks just in the tall tange for a woman and has the proportions of a 5 ft 7 lady.
Jake T. said on 5/Oct/11
Catherine is 1.5 or 2 inches smaller than Michael Douglas, maybe a flat 5'7 but nothing under that.
NYCGuy said on 25/Jul/11
John is absolutely right: 5'6". And to all those who argue otherwise because they've examine photographs and compared her to other celebrities whose hieght they can only guess at: Once again, my wife and I have actually SEEN her up-close and in person. She was no more than a foot away from me and she is 5'6".
John said on 1/Jul/11
She's 5'6

In regards to Catherine visit to England, Prince Charles was standing on a step as Rob pointed out: Click Here She is actually the same height when she wears 3" heels: Click Here Click Here

When she wears low footwear she is maybe 2" shorter than 5'10" Michael Douglas: Click Here

Further, standing next to 5'5" Heather Locklear and 5'3.5" Cheryl Ladd, she is evidently a 5'7" primo doll: Click Here Click Here these photos debunk those bogus claims that she is 5'4" or 5'6". She is tall of above average height for a women with graced dimensions: Click Here harmonious symmetry a feast for the senses!
NYCGuy said on 6/Mar/11
Catherine is 5'6". To the posters who say she is taller by comparing her height to her 5'10" husband Micahel Douglas--check his listing! He is officially downgraded to 5'9" on this site with many posters saying he is closer to 5'8" without his elevator shoes.
sue said on 24/Feb/11
The full size photo is in my Evening Paper, Charles is standing on a large step, she has heel's on of about 4.5 inches. There is another photo of her standing with Micheal and she looks a bit taller than him

Just to clarify on my sighting of CZJ. She was wearing flats, like ballet slippers, so it was as if she was barefoot. I was able to judge her height very clearly. I am 5'10" in my dress shoes and she was 4 inches shorter than me. My wife was 5'4" in her shoes and remarked how Catherine was not that much taller than her. 5'6" tops.
NYCGuy said on 6/Jan/11
Just saw her at a Broadway show tonight (A Little Night Music. She was in the audience and after the show walked next to me on her way backstage to visit the cast; she was not more than a foot away from me. I was surprised that she was shorter than she looks onscreen. I always thought she was at least 5'7" or 5'8" but the other posters who say no more than 5'6" are right on the money. My wife and I can swear to it.

A bit shorter than Antonio Banderas so 1,70m sounds right. Great height for a woman.

Catherine is a real vision with her delightful presence: a tall and beautiful woman walking in front of a TV camera: Click Here nothing under 5'7.25" for this babe who has been tap to play queen Cleopatra: Click Here

On that note and from an historical perspective, if Cleopatra looked anything like Catherine, then it is understandable why Mark Anthony won so many battles so quickly...he had more important things to do than to be Rome's most famed and renowned general; a timeless men's motif indeed: Click Here

My aunt saw her in the shop that she works at in nyc and said she is thin and not tall, about 5'3" and her hair was a light brown color...she knew that it was her, but a bit surprised by her appearance...said it was definitely her!

She is 5'6". An old friend of mine Lelani Munter 5'3" is her body double and says that she is 3 inches shorter.
Mister Lennon said on 20/Sep/07
Catherine is not more than 5'4 or 5'5. In chicago, she looked two or three inches taller than renee zellwegger because the high hells. But in real life, and both wearing the same kind of shoes ( like in the Berlin film festival), they looked the same. And zelwegger is a 5'3 or 5'4. Catherine zeta jones is a shortie.
Anna said on 17/Sep/07
What, peep? Firstly, you're saying Ellen is 5'5" (I thought she was 5'7"), and secondly, you are saying Catherine is 5'3" or 5'4"? What?
Ali said on 14/Sep/07
Just saw a pic of her and Charlotte Church walking with Ian Botham. Catherine no more than 1-1.5" taller than Charlotte. Charlotte is my height (stood next to her in London once) 5'3". So Catherine is no more than 5'5".
peep said on 26/Aug/07
She had 5 inch heels in the Degeneres show. She looks about 3 inches taller next to Ellen 5'5" who is wearing flats. She is a sold 5'3" or 5'4". No more.

is she almost as tall as julia roberts in the ocean's fimls? i need to check that out-i believe she is this height.
sara said on 29/Jul/07
Mike, she did look tall in Chicago in those huge heels. That is, until she stood next to 5'10 Richard Gere who was still a few inches taller. 5'5 to 56'. No more than that.
Lenny said on 11/Jun/07
She's around 5'6" to 5'7" no more no less. I saw her once in a restaurant in Wales with about 3" heels a few years back and she is still slightly taller than my 5'9" frame.
Mister Lennon said on 1/Jun/07
There are some pics with Catherine and Reenee zellwegger in the Berlin Film festival premiere of Chicago, only post catherine and rennee names in the google search and you will see it.

In these pics, Catherine looks the same or even shorter than Rennee Zellwegger, and both were wearing normal shoes. I would say that in chicago, Catherine looked clearly taller than Rennee because the 5 hinch heels. Normally, they are about the same height. I would say that catherine is about 5'4 or 5'5, not more.
sara said on 30/May/07
I agree. If she were a tall woman, she wouldn't need 5 inch heels. She's short or average height. Every person who has seen her in person has claimed that she isn't tall.
Mike said on 29/May/07
In the movie Chicago, she looked tall with heels. A 5'5 to 5'6 woman wouldn't look like her, and Renee Zellwegger looked clearly shorter. Catherine is at least 5'7
MarkMark said on 29/May/07
I think 5'7+ is a joke! I just saw her on Saturday Night Live and IN HEELS she's as tall as Keenan Thompson (5'8"). She's about 5'4.5" I'd say. Definitely no more than 5'6", that can't be possible.

I also think the guy who posted about her Ellen Degeneres appearance is probably right, because Ellen is a known 171cm. About 5'5". Ellen is a great reference for height, because of the camera angle of when she greets her guests.

There was some moron once in an article saying "Welsh women getting taller. 'The average girl used to be about 5ft 5' but now she's 5ft 10' or even 6ft"

I would say between 5'7" and 5'8" is correct. She was alot taller than David Jason (listed as 5'6") in "Darling Buds Of May" and there does not seem to be much difference between her height and Michael Douglas' listed as 5'10".
sara said on 20/Jan/07
I think all the comments about her being 5'5 to 5'6 are correct. She always wears big heels and she never towers over the leading man in her movies. If she's really close to 5'8, she wouldn't look so small next to 5'9 Antonio Banderas in big heels.

5'7.5 looks about right. fairly tall. very thin and pretty in person.

my girlfriend is 5'7 and i dont think zeta is as tall
honey said on 18/Aug/06
Actually it wasn't Catherine's height that stunned my friends (although they expected her to be much taller than 5'6"), but the fact that she was incredibly thin, nothing but skin and bones... another victim of the Hollywood anorexia trend...
But if she is 5'6" than Renee Zelweger can't be anything more than 5'3"
Boblinda said on 9/Aug/06
I live 3 doors down from Catherine in her Swansea home, I often see her gardening and is probably around 5ft 5

5'4" is not true i met her on terminal she was wearing no heels she looks a minimum of 5'6 maybe 5'7"

she has a house in bermuda, and I see her around at restaurants from time to time in the city. she is no more the 5'4. I stood beside her with a friend who is was clearly the same height as her.
The Horse of FUNK said on 7/May/06
This 5'6, and even slightly under, talk is too unrealistic. She's way too leggy for anything under 5'7.
richinkle said on 30/Apr/06
I'm going to weigh in at 5'-6 1/2" to 5'-7"
Kats said on 22/Mar/06
Oh puleeze, Picture. So she gave a height that is less than what she really is? Ha ha ha ha. The eyewitness claims are almost always off. It's not people's fault; it's just that it's very easy to think you are looking eye-to-eye with someone but your eyes are really an inch or two off. So I never believe those.

I still say slightly under 5'6. hehe, I like how she has been downgraded... by a whole 1/4 inch! WOW! Conservatiiiive. :)

She is 5 ft 8.
I was eye in eye with Cathy.

5-6 and half.

Unless Nicole Kidman is taller than she claims, I think Cantstop's pic proves Catherine isn't 5 foot seven and a half.

[Editor Rob: the heel sizes can be seen on getty, there's a dozen more pics there, both look to have big heels...]
dmeyer said on 15/Mar/06
i remember on the set of terminal the crew was sayng she is 5'6" but i dont think she is over 5'7 since even with 3 in heels she was nowere near my height or hanks height i would say she is between 168 to 171
sara said on 14/Mar/06
I give her 5'5 to 5'6.
Brody said on 10/Mar/06
Sisa I wouldn't go out with a 5'11 woman especially if she wore heels! 5'3" -5'5" is my ideal height range it is more femine (I'm 6'2")
Kats said on 9/Mar/06
Oh yeah, and to comment on Catherine Zeta Jones... she is 5'4-5'5/5. Another liar bumping her height up. Smooth.. she even added the .5 to make it sound legitimate.
Kats said on 9/Mar/06
Sisa, Becky never said all women over 5'8 are awkward. She meant if you're awkward looking and happen to be over 5'8 you look even more awkward. A little defensive? Maybe you're not as happy with being an amazon as you think. Studies show most guys prefer smaller women. Don't misconstrue what I'm saying--a lot of guys like taller females, a lot of guys don't care either way. I'm just telling you biological studies. Don't make it sound like being very tall is superior. There is no proof of that.
icee said on 8/Mar/06
sissy, i mean sisa, 5'11 is a bit too tall honey, and i dont recommend you wearing HEELS not heals.
Sisa said on 28/Feb/06
To Becky: You personally believe that a woman over 5'8" is a huge and awkward one????? I am 5'11" and look just great with heals on. Believe me that I have heard so many compliments from men that it has never even bothered me to think of any disadvantages of being tall. Being tall is beautiful and elegant. Of course, a short woman can only envy beautiful, tall women because she will never be like them.
Anonymous said on 29/Jan/06
In the December 2005 issue of Harper's Bazaar she said she is 5'7.5".
Becky said on 8/Dec/05
Alot of people think height has to be higher, not so, its proportions that look best. Sometimes shorter is cuter. But a huge awkward women over 5'8" is really just awkward. Once a model isn't a model, one day she will be some tall awkward, hopefully gracefully aging women, but most of the time it will be wierd. Very tall people for the most part look out of character...Now once the population starts multiplying with tall people and eating more nutritious foods, of course the human species will hit very high heights that we are not used to and then 5'8" will eventually be the next 5'2"...and then tall will be King Kong only :-] So what is height anyway... :-]

Leiliana Munter, a body double described her: "It was on the set of Traffic, I was asked to totter down the road in enormous high heels. Catherine is 5ft 7in-and-a-half. I'm only 5ft 3in, so I had to wear these huge heels. She thought it was hilarious"
kcq said on 12/May/05
I just watched Ocean's Twelve where she is standing next to Brad Pitt and in a scene where you can see their feet she is wearing at least 2 inch heels and still is a good three or four inches shorter than he. She could be less than 170. All depends on her exact heel height and whether he was wearing lifts.
Smoke said on 4/May/05
Anonymous, accept it, she's not that tall. The 174 she has always been listed at was a fabrication. I also doubt Julia's 173/174 cm, something about that Ocean's 11 cast and tricky height! Julia definately didn't look this height beside Oprah and Natalie Portman.
