Elle Fanning's Height
5ft 8.5in (174 cm)
American actress known for roles in Maleficent, Super 8 and We Bought a Zoo. In a NYMag article in 2013 she mentioned her her height as being " 'five-seven-and-three-quarters' frame"
I did a film not too long ago with Nicole Kidman. She's so tall, but she very much embraces how tall she is. I grew seven inches when I was 12, and I'm not as tall as her - I'm 5'9" - but also, everyone is not [always that] tall in the movie industry! [Laughs] Having talked to her about it and seeing her so confident...I really looked up to that.

She was wearing 2-3in heels on Fallon and still looked about 1in shorter than him. Assuming Fallon's shoes add 1 in, he'd be 6'0.5", Elle would be 5'10.5" or 5'11.5" Probably 5'8" flat

In this casting call for a butt double in "The Beguiled" they describe "the actress we are doubling is 5'8 with a hip measurement of 39.5 and 24/25 waist". Elle is the only lead actress of the movie who fits this description: Click Here

She's in The Neon Demon with Keanu Reeves. 5'8.5" is a good estimate. She's tall for 18, with a large face.
Elle and Keanu (6'0.75") and Charles Baker (Skinny Pete from Breaking Bad, probably 5'9") are in the first two shots. Elle and Jena Malone are in the next one, thrown in there to show how tall people can appear on screen if they want to, Jena must have 4" heels on. Last shot is of Jena (5'5"), Elle, and Desmond Harrington (5'11").

5 foot 7 might be acceptable she doesn't look 5 inches taller than her sis.
Lana said on 1/Sep/16
She should be upgraded to 5'9" or 5'9.25"
Stephanie said on 25/Aug/16
@Laura- Elle hasn't been 5' 6" since fall 2010 when she was 12 (her growth spurt was 4' 11" to 5' 6"). I don't know if she's quite 5' 9" but 2-3 years ago she was 5' 8" so she could have grown a little since then. She is significantly taller than her sister Dakota, and if she were 5' 6" or 5' 7" she would only look slightly taller.
Laura said on 17/Aug/16
Elle is 5 feet 6 is more realistic
said on 3/Aug/16
Here is another interview where Elle doubled down on her 5'9"-claim. So I guess from now on she is probably going to mention that value consistently: Click Here

Hi rob,no offense but remember when i asked u about any intentions for changing photo and you replied saying at some point yes,well u didn't,her photo really needs to change.
Editor Rob: I did change it now.
said on 31/Jul/16
Glad to see you upgraded her height Rob. What made you see the change?
Editor Rob: she has claimed a taller height and at 16-18 could look to have gained a final little bit.
Leonardo said on 20/Jul/16
5'8.25 is more realistic
Laura said on 19/Jul/16
She strong 5 feet 6 to 5feet 7
Tom said on 17/Jul/16
Needs an upgrade. She's a weak yet believable 5'9". Are you going to upgrade her?
said on 13/Jul/16
Rob,is there intentions to change the photo??
Editor Rob: I will at some point yes
MoHaa said on 7/Jul/16
@charlotte are you a boy or a girl??
TJE said on 6/Jul/16
5'8 flat would be better
Pedro said on 5/Jul/16
@TJE I think Elle was already at least 5'8" when the picture with Angelina was taken. The old 172cm listing is based on an old quote she made at age 14.
@Andrea I meant that Elle looks taller than Jimmy while wearing those very high heels. Of course there is no denying that she is much shorter without them.
said on 5/Jul/16
Would you call someone with the height of 174 tall? I'm 12 and I'm 176
Editor Rob: yes, Elle is in the tall range for a female, if she's around 5ft 8 range...5ft 9 range at 12 is very tall!
said on 3/Jul/16
@Rob In this picture you can also see the shoes that Jimmy Fallon was wearing: Click Here
Editor Rob: it might be 1.3-1.4 style heel he has.
Andrea said on 2/Jul/16
Towered??? As i said on the "main" page, people here use the word "tower" even for very tiny differences! In this case, it's even funnier because Jimmy actually looks taller and is still "towered" by Elle!!!
Good news for Big G, who can say he towered Big Rob ahahah
TJE said on 2/Jul/16
The pic should be updated to something that confirms this listing. Chances are she would've been this height for a couple years now yet she looks 172 with 169 tops Jolie.
said on 1/Jul/16
How much taller did these heels make Elle: Click Here
She towered over Jimmy Fallon with those: Click Here
Editor Rob: they are the kind of heel that will get you at least 4.5, and somewhere between 4.6-4.9 range...I actually thought she would have looked taller against him if she really was 5ft 9.
Lol said on 1/Jul/16
She is 5'9 now.
Dakota is still 5'4 really ?
said on 27/Jun/16
Do you think she grow near 18???
Editor Rob: I think at 16-17 range she probably squeezed out a bit more height.

Sam said on 26/Jun/16
Saw Neon Demon-- she's a legit 5'9", maybe a fraction above, she needs an upgrade.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 26/Jun/16
I can buy this 5'9" claim of hers, she's pretty tall. Beautiful height for a girl.

said on 23/Jun/16
Here is finally Elle's first direct height quote since a few years ago. She now claims being "5'9" in this interview: Click Here
I think she is clearly rounding her height up, but this seems to give more credibility to when the author of one of her new movies said on 1:00:06 of this audio-interview that she is "like 5'8 1/2" now: Click Here
Anyway, I think her height here should at least be upgraded to a full 5'8", because her 5'7 3/4" claim is clearly outdated from when she was just 14 years old.
Editor Rob: it is believable the 5ft 8.5 looking at some recent photos, she may have got a couple more cm through 16-18 range.
ripjeet said on 3/Jun/16
thnx for the great info u give us friends.i absolutely agree with the height u ve mentioned for Ms Elle Fanning.Miss Jolie is considered to have long(or very long) legs and a relatively shorter torso.My point is that Miss Elle seems to have longer legs then that of Miss Jolie...so could ee say that she has long legs and short torso as well or there is a flaw in this pic.please reply all eesponses r welcome.(really sorry if My grammer was a bit shaky...English is my second language).

@Brian25 and Hellshealheight, what are you guys even talking about? Are you trolls or something? If she was only 5'5, everybody else next to her, including her 5'4 sister need downgrades.
Brian25 said on 16/Apr/16
heelshealheight-I agree with you. Elle Fanning wishes to be tall but she's just average. Very tall women don't need those chunky heels as they stand tall in flats. Sorry Ellen Fanning, but get back in line with the mediocre girls.
heelshealheight said on 15/Apr/16
Another bogus height.. Place her next to Karlie Kloss and Elle's a dwarf. Rob, I only take into serious regard the height estimations in which you actually stand next to these egomaniacs. Elle's legs are thick-set and short. She's no more than 5'5''. The 'trick' these average height men/women deploy is that they always strive to stand next to extremely short people so that they may appear colossus. But place her next to the truly tall folks, and you've got your real assessment.

Rob do you think has grown to 5'8".5 because that is what the writer of her new movie said.
Editor Rob: hard to tell, but she could be around 5ft 8
loq said on 21/Dec/15
i think that elle is no more 5'7.5. and i agree with div. her bf is below 5'11 not very tall guy
Pedro said on 13/Dec/15
@div Nobody is saying that Elle was 5'7.75" for the past years and then suddently starting growing. That value is based on the last direct quote we got from Elle about her height, from when she was still 14 years old. Last year she has been described frequently by the media as being 5'8", but without having quoted her directly. So I think it's absolutely plausible to believe that she maybe grew another quarter or half inch to at least make it to a full 5'8".
As for the 5'8.5" quote, it was done by the writer of one of her next movies. She was talking in the context of casting a love interest for Elle who is much taller than she is. So there was no reason for her to talking her height up. However, it's of course possible that she misquoted Elle because she maybe didn't remembered it correctly.
div said on 10/Dec/15
Her boyfriend is below 5'11 . I am a 5'11 guy and I can you tell that guy would be shorter than me. Elle is about 5'7.5 . She would reach 5'8 in the morning.
div said on 10/Dec/15
5'8.5 tall for elle is nonsense talk. She has been 5'7.75" for the past 3 years and all of a sudden she starts growing . That doesn't happen . 99% of girls reach full height at 15. Her publicist who ever who is talking about her is just talking her up. Thats what they do. We will known soon enough if she has had a late growth spurt when we see stand beside other tall actresses like Nicole Kidman, Charlzie Theron etc . But at the moment I am not buying it.

The writer of one of Elle's new movies "All the Bright Places" said on 1:00:06 of this audio-interview that she is apparently "like 5'8 1/2" now: Click Here
Stephanie said on 2/Oct/15
The average growth for girls from 13 to 18 is actually 2.5" according to height charts: the average (50th percentile) 13-year-old is just under 5' 2" and the average 18-year-old is just over 5' 4". I don't think Elle's grown since 2013, which is normal considering she got a big growth spurt in 2010 (seven inches). A lot of girls don't grow anymore at all after having such a large growth spurt, but Elle was only 11-12 so I think that's why she gained two more inches after that.
MynceSackcloth said on 21/Aug/15
How can that be? I was super tiny 4'10" at 14 and grew to 5'11" in my 20's. Elle is taller than any 5'8". She was taller than me at age 13 at 5'7". On average, girls have 3-4 inches more to grow till they hit 17. She's 5'11" if you ask my opinion. Experience is talking here, not me.
Cal said on 11/Aug/15
5-11 at this point. My best friend used to go to her school and they keep in touch. I met her at my friends house pool party and she looked super tall. I mean part of it was some sandles with wedges she had on that made her look almost exactly the same height as my 6-0 friend. She was also surrounded by 5-4 girls trying to be friends with her. The brief moment I talked to her was in the pool. As a 5-6 guy I'm used to being around taller girls, so I'm not self conscious typically. Maybe it was partially because she was famous, but she was enough taller that when I stood next to her I started to blush and climbed up onto my top toes. She was still maybe 2 inches taller then me. She was also just striking. Her body was gorgeous and she was just glowing.

Im at 5 feet 4 half to 5feet 5 but look taller than I am
Elle looks 5 feet 8 with heels mor to be 5feet 5 half now
Angel said on 29/Jan/15
I'm 5'9.75'' (177 cm) and 17 yrs old
when i was younger,like 11 yrs old i was 4'10'' (147 cm) i grow pretty slow when i was 11-13.Now i grow fast during my 14-16 yrs old
(age 11) 4'10" (147 cm) MY HEIGHT CHART:
(age 12) 4'11.5" (151 cm)
(age 13) 5'1" (155 cm)
(age 14) 5'4.5"(164 cm)
(age 15) 5'7" (170 cm)
(age 16) 5'9" (175 cm)
(age 17) 5'9.75" (177 cm) (this age i start to slow down)
i think elle grow too too fast which will not let her grow anymore
Pedro said on 27/Jan/15
@Polisargher I disagree with this chart. Elle has stated in many interviews that she had a very intense growth spurt, where she grew 7 inches in just 1 year and a half. Which was basically the period between shooting "Somewhere" and "Super 8". So I think that this chart is more accurate, where the age refers to the respective period of her birthday on April 9.
(Age 11) 4'11" (150 cm)
(Age 12) 5'4" (163 cm)
(Age 13) 5'6.5" (168 cm)
(Age 14) 5'7.5" (171 cm)
(Age 15) 5'7.75" (172 cm)
(Age 16) 5'8" (173 cm)
Polisargher said on 26/Jan/15
Elle Fanning height chart:(not precise height,but estimated height)
(age 11) 5'1 (154 cm)
(age 12) 5'3 (161 cm)
(age 13) 5'6 (168 cm)
(age 14) 5'7 (170 cm)
(age 15) 5'7 (171 cm)
(age 16) 5'8 (172 cm)
(age 17) 5'8 (173 cm) (she will not grow anymore at this age,so she is likely being 5'8)
(age 18) 5'8 (173 cm)
she grew pretty fast when she was 13, so she won't be able to grow more (she can still grow,but few cm like 1 cm)
Stephanie said on 22/Jan/15
@Laura- Elle hasn't been 5' 5" in a long time. She was 4' 11" in fall 2009 (age 11) and 5' 6" in fall 2010 (age 12). She's turning 17 in a few months. Right now she's looks to be 5' 8". There are times when she looks slightly taller (5' 9") but that could just be her shoes.
Pedro said on 22/Jan/15
Ah, nice that her picture was finally updated.
said on 13/Jan/15
@Rob I think that this neck-aspect is very visible in this picture of Elle with Hailee Steinfeld. Elle's shoulders are just slightly higher, but it's then the neck-size difference which makes her tower clearly of Hailee in this picture: Click Here
[Editor Rob: yes in that photo she looks to have a long neck.]
said on 12/Jan/15
@Rob What do you estimate to be Elle's neck size and how much longer is it than the average neck? I am curious how much she gains in terms of height over most people just because of her neck: Click Here
[Editor Rob: it's something I've never really thought that much or considered a measurement of! It looks longer than average, but how much I'm not sure exactly...]

she is 5 feet in 2010 . she is little taller than me. I think like 5 feet 4 ish to 5feet 6 looks taller than she is
said on 2/Sep/14
@Stephanie In the case of comparing Elle with Hailee, I think that it is actually Hailee who needs a little downgrade. After comparing her with other people, I am starting to get more convinced that Hailee is slightly shorter than 5'7".
As for comparing Elle with her mother, I guess that you are probably referring to this picture: Click Here
But I am sure that Elle was wearing some high heeled boots in that picture. Just look at how high Elle's knees were compared with her mother. There is no way that her legs grew like that all of a sudden. Here is a more recent picture with both where they look much closer in height: Click Here
Stephanie said on 29/Aug/14
but@Pedro In December 2010 she said she was 5' 6". Early last year she said 5' 7.75". Although from pictures this month (next to her mom and next to Hailee Steinfeld) it does look like she randomly grew another inch or so, but I can't see her footwear/heels in any of them to tell if she actually grew or if she just wore taller shoes/boots. But considering her age and growth pattern, it's unlikely that she's still growing.
@Ian said on 27/Aug/14
I agree, Nazi Eugenics ftw!
said on 27/Aug/14
Here are a couple of pictures of Elle next to the same woman. The first picture is from December 2010 Click Here

I think that it pretty much shows that Elle grew a couple of inches since then.

She's a beautiful tall blonde blue eyed princess :) She should date/marry a tall blonde hair blue eyed boy, have to keep those genetics pure.

@Jane Oh, nevermind. It turns out that Elle changed her heels when she was on the inside of the show: Click Here
So it could be possible that Elle and Hailee have in fact a 2 inch difference. Although I think that Elle had better posture in those pictures.
said on 16/Aug/14
@Jane I think that Elle's heels Click Here
looked slightly higher than Hailee's heels Click Here
But of course there is now doubt that Elle is taller than Hailee.
said on 15/Aug/14
I believe that there's around 2inches of difference between Elle and Hailee, they're both wearing similar heels
said on 31/Jul/14
Here is Elle next to Isaac Hempstead Wright: Click Here
I am not an expert on how Elle's heels and posture affected the picture. But it seems to be clear to me that Isaac is slightly taller than Elle. Do you think that Isaac is still 5'8" or is he already near 5'9"?
[Editor Rob: he could be near 5ft 9 now, been a while since he said he was about 5ft 8]
Jay said on 3/Jul/14
Should be 5'8 now.
said on 7/Jun/14
@Realist I could be wrong, but I think that Angelina's heels were slightly higher than Elle's in both press conferences. Also the fact that Angelina's hair is a little higher made it look that they are closer in height. But if you just look at their eye levels, then you will see a clear difference between them: Click Here
and Click Here
By the way, I think that "Maleficent" should be added on the top. It's clearly Elle's biggest movie right now.
said on 6/Jun/14
Not quite Rob, she is a strong 5'7 for sure. But not close to 5'8. She does'nt look that much with 5'6.25-5'6.50 Angeline Jolie in Malificent or the premiers.
Maybe 171 is better.
[Editor Rob: I can believe she measured somewhere in 5ft 7.5-.75 range, ]
Pedro said on 28/Apr/14
@Stephanie Yes, she still looks almost the same as on that "Critic's Choice"-picture. But this is a height site. So I thought that it would be more appropriate to use a picture where she is fully grown. That's why I suggested to replace it by a more recent one.
Stephanie said on 28/Apr/14
@Pedro I wouldn't be surprised if she stopped growing, either. But more than one recent article said 5' 8" for her, it wasn't just Marie Claire rounding up. And considering Elle's huge growth spurt in late 2009-fall 2010 (she grew seven inches) she probably won't have much if any growth left at this point.
That picture is old as far as pics of kids go but at least it still looks like her. She's only grown two inches since then. Her big change was from 2009-2010. In 2009 she looked like a little kid but 2010 she looks like a teenager.
said on 26/Apr/14
I think that Elle's picture here should be replaced for being outdated. She was only 12 years old and 5'6" at that time. Instead I suggest using this recent picture from "PR Photos": Click Here
Pedro said on 23/Apr/14
@Stephanie Yes, that is very possible. But I am still waiting for an unmistakable direct quote by Elle. She made that "five-seven-and-three-quarters"-quote when she was late 14. So I don't think that it is completely out of the question that she already stopped growing at that time and that "Marie Claire" just rounded her height up to 5'8".
Stephanie said on 21/Apr/14
@Pedro I was just about to post the Marie Claire link. The 5' 7.75" height was when she was still 14 so I wouldn't be surprised if she gained that last quarter inch in a year. Elle is 5' 8" (173 cm) now.
said on 12/Apr/14
@Stephanie Elle is actually now being described as 5'8" in both recent articles from "Marie Claire" Click Here
and "Cover Media" Click Here
I am not sure if they just rounded up the height that she has been listed before or if she told them directly that she is 5'8"? But I agree that the only real doubt concerning Elle's height is if she made it to an even 5'8" or if she stopped at 5'7.75"?
@marla I think that Dakota was still growing at the time she shot "The Runaways". She was 5'3.5" at age 15 and grew another 1/2 inch until she stopped growing at age 16. I think there is only a 4 inch difference between Elle and Dakota.
marla singer said on 11/Apr/14
I think that between Elle and Dakota there is a 5 inches height difference, possibly 162 cm for Dakota who seems shorter than Kristen Stewart and 174 for Elle.
Stephanie said on 7/Apr/14
Looking at the white girls' height charts, the average growth between a girl's 13th birthday and 18th birthday is 2.5". Elle was 5' 6" as of fall 2010 (age 12.5). She was 5' 6.5"-5' 7" as of late 2011 (age 13.5) and in 2013 (age 15) she was 5' 7.75". I'm guessing she's either done growing or she'll end up an even 5' 8".

said on 14/Jan/14
@Just Sorry, I didn't knew your age.
Of course there are some girls who continue growing until their early twenties. But those are really just a small percentage. The fact that you were "a late bloomer in everything" pretty much explains why you were one of those rare cases. But the majority of girls stops growing around age 15/16.
One thing that we can say about Elle is that she is definitely not a late bloomer. She grew 7 inches in 2 years while she was 11/12. That was 3 years ago! The normal pattern for a girl of that age is that her growth slows down year after year in her teens. Which seems to be exactly Elle's case. If you compare her candid-pictures from 2012 with 2013 you won't notice much change: Click Here

@Pedro I'm not a boy. And since I'm 39 years old now, I'm not a girl anymore. At biology lessons in highschool (in the Netherlands) I've heard female can grow till 21 years old and male till 25 years old. I'm not sure if I really did grow till 21 years, but I did grow after the age of 17. But I'm also a late bloomer in everything.

@Just Are you a boy or a girl? Because in the case of boys it happens a few times that they continue growing until their 20s, but it is just much more rare in the case of girls. Here is a chart where they compare the different growth patterns between boys and girls: Click Here
I am not saying that it is impossible that Elle will grow much more. I just mean that in her case it is very unlikely. She seems to fit exactly the typical pattern of a girl who grows like crazy in their pre-teens, but who then slows down in her teens.
Just said on 4/Jan/14
@Pedro, Elle is still very young. I myself grew an inch after the age of 17. At 17 I thought I was done growing at 5'6. But when I measered myself at 20 I discovered I'd had grown an inch.
said on 13/Dec/13
@Carlos I think that Elle had a slightly better posture than her mom on that picture. If you just compare their shoulders you can see that her mom's are slightly higher. In this picture from the same day you can get a better perspective of the fact that Elle has still a smaller body: Click Here
Besides, as far as I know Elle's mom's height hasn't been mentioned by any of the sisters. The general consensus is that she is around 5'9", but she could be also only 5'8.5" or something like that.
If Elle is still growing, then I think that it is just a matter of a few millimeters and not much more. She had her massive growth spurt very early at age 11/12 and normally this also means that you stop growing sooner. But I think that we can assume that she is a full 5'8" at this point.
said on 12/Dec/13
@Pedro But surely if Elle's mom is 5'9-5'10 then this picture: Click Here
suggests that Elle has grown past 5'8 and is still growing. Some girls have a big spurt then stop, others can carry on for years at a slower rate.
Pedro said on 9/Dec/13
@Just Your cousine is clearly an exception, because 6'1" is a gigantic height for a woman. But most girls stop growing around age 15/16. So I don't think that it is very likely that Elle will become much taller than 5'8".
liz said on 7/Dec/13
She least 2-3 inches taller than Dakota with heels on.
Elle is now 5feet 5 to 5feet 5 half. Her mother and Elle is at least 2-4 inches difference. Her mother is way taller both them. Elle is under her nose is least 5feet 7 to 5feet 8 with heels. Bare foot up to her nose which 4 inches shorter
Just said on 4/Dec/13
She's young. I don't think she's done growing. So her height needs to be adjusted so now and then. My cousine was 5'10 at 13. Now as adult she's 6'1.
said on 2/Dec/13
@liz Have you even looked at the pictures? Dakota was wearing heels as well, not only Elle. In this picture you can see a better perspective of the shoes they were wearing that day: Click Here
So to say that there is a bigger height difference between Elle and Dakota than between Elle and her mum is ridiculous. Elle is much taller than Dakota, but just a little shorter than her mother.
liz said on 1/Dec/13
She 4 to 5 inches heels
elle looks with 5feet 9 with heels> Dakota is about an 2 inches from her.
elle must be 5feet 5
Mother is 5feet 9 or 5feet10. Elle between 5feet 4 to 5feet 5 she look taller.
Elle but 2or 3 inches from mother.
said on 29/Nov/13
@lizzie There is no big height gap between Elle and her mother. Just look at this picture from the summer where both were wearing flat sandals: Click Here
The only huge height gap is the one between Elle and Dakota. As you can see in this picture, where Dakota's heels were 1cm higher than Elle's: Click Here
lizzie said on 28/Nov/13
Yes she can between that because with heels she is 5 feet 8 tom5feet9 . She around 5 feet 5now in 2013. I know because there big height gap between between her mother like 3-4 inches so make sense
in her bare feet she around 5 feet 4 to 5feet 5 around my height or looks like taller than she is
Pedro said on 26/Nov/13
@lizzie How can someone be between "5feet3 to 5feet 5" but look like "5 feet 8"? Are you even aware how much 3-5 inches are? I think you confuse inches with centimeters. Otherwise your posts don't make any sense.
lizzie said on 25/Nov/13
in her bare feet she 5feet3 to 5feet 5 but she looks 5 feet 8
she done growing
Lizzie said on 18/Nov/13
elle is around 5feet 4
nofearsorregrets said on 16/Nov/13
If celebheights is correct we are the exact same height.But I wouldn`t mind tippy toe when she is using heels `cause she is so pretty !!!
said on 2/Nov/13
In this mexican-interview from June this year Elle is quoted as saying "mido 1.75" (I measure 1.75): Click Here
. But I think that it is much more likely that she told them that she is 5'8" and that they then inaccurately converted it into the metrical system.
Also, around the same time in May/June Elle was filming "Low Down". In this movie she apparently had a stunt double, who is listed in her bio at 5'7.5" and in her resume at 5'8". So this pretty much would confirm that at time Elle was probably still around 5'7.75".
said on 2/Nov/13
@Stephanie Elle's mom has a long neck as well. So I don't think that the neck makes a lot of a difference. As you can see in this picture from July: Click Here
So I really think that the main reason why they sometimes appear to have the same height has to do with posture. Elle is much younger, so it is natural that she has a better posture than her mom. I also noticed that Elle has many times the happit of looking up when she is walking or talking to people. In this interview she even admitted herself that she likes to stand up straight and being confident about her height: Click Here
Lizzie said on 30/Oct/13
Elle is least 5feet 3 half to 5feet 6 2013 but she looks taller of long legs
Lizzie said on 30/Oct/13
Elle on different websites says that she between 5feet to 5 feet 7
in most picture with her mom she u to her eye with fl shoes on so I think 3 inches shorter her mother her mom is between 5 feet 9 ish to 5 feet 10half
liz said on 27/Oct/13
Elle is lot shorter in picture of her flats she around her mother nose
elle is maybe approx. around 5feet4 half to 5feet 5,in most picture with bare feet
Stephanie said on 15/Oct/13
@Pedro I agree that Elle's mom is still slightly taller than she is (take 1/2" was for Elle, not Joy). Elle has a long neck so I don't know if matching shoulders is a good indication, but some of the other photos in the set show Joy as being slightly taller than Elle. And they had similar footwear. If Joy is 5' 9" then Elle has got to be between 5' 8" and 5' 8.5". She did grow since the beginning of this year, but not a lot (she's 15 1/2 now so she's getting to the end of her growth).
@liz All the heights on this site are barefoot heights, not heights with heels on. Elle was 4' 11"-5' 0" in late 2009, 5' 6" in late 2010, 5' 6.5"-5' 7" in late 2011, and 5' 7.75" as of early 2013. Dakota was 5' 3.5" in late 2009, and as of late 2010 she is 5' 4" and done growing. Elle is definitely quite a bit taller that Dakota. So is their mother, Joy, and Elle has just about caught up to their mother. And these are from pics of them walking around in regular shoes, not in heels to events. In heels Elle would be around 5' 10". Elle hasn't been 5' 5" since approx. May 2010 (more than three years ago)!
liz said on 11/Oct/13
I think might grown a little like between 5 feet 5 now not soild 5feet 8 maybe with heels on
Mom is around 5feet 9 or 5feet 10 Elle is around on sunglass so say more 5feet 4 half to 5feet 6. elle is least with heels 5feet 8 to 5feet 9 ish with flat shoe more like 5 feet 5 to 5feet 5 half. I think grown littlw beginning of this year.
said on 10/Oct/13
Here is a very recent picture of Elle standing next to Dakota from PFW: Click Here
. Dakota was wearing these shoes Click Here
, while Elle was wearing these Click Here
who look very similar to these Click Here
. So if I am not mistaken, Dakota must have had around 1 cm foot advantage over Elle.
Anyone who thinks that Elle might have grown since the beginning of the year?
said on 9/Oct/13
@Stephanie If you just compare their shoulders you can see that her mum is still slightly taller than Elle. They look like having the same height in some pictures because her mum has usually a more relaxed posture while walking. I think that in this picture from the same day you can get a better perspective of the fact that Elle has still a smaller body: Click Here
But I agree that it is very likely that Elle grew a little more since the beginning of the year. I think that she is maybe a solid 5'8" now.
Lizzie said on 7/Oct/13
I think she same as me
Elle is now 15 years old
Elle is 5feet 4 to 5feet 6 on most website online
Elle is Late 2013 feet 5 without shoes and with more likely as tall mother with heels. Elle is might grew little again but might done growing. Dakota is 5 feet 5. Elle is must be feet 4 to 5 feet 6
Lizzie said on 5/Oct/13
I think is allusion
Elle is at least 5 feet 3 to 5 feet. 4 half
Mom around 5 feet 10 4 inches
Elle might done growing. I think she shorter than 5 feet 8
She around mom's nose in lot of pictures than not true l think she. 5 feet 3 half to 5 feet 5
said on 2/Oct/13
@Lizzie Elle is the same height as her mom now, maybe take 1/2". Just look at some recent pictures of them together from September 28, 2013: Click Here
Her mom is 5' 9" based on pics of her next to people with known heights (Dakota 5' 4" Steve 6' 3"). Elle was slightly shorter than her mom earlier this year when her height was given, so it looks like she grew again. Photo from May 25, 2013: Click Here
said on 27/Sep/13
@Pedro & Rob: Thanks for your input!!
So according to Rob Elle has a little more than 1 inch footwear advantage, let's say 1 inch straight.
How much taller would you say is she in this picture? Click Here
About 9/10 cm? Or 3 1/2inches?
[Editor Rob: it might be nearly 4 inches, possibly dakota is slightly nearer. If you take a photo from The other side
with elle having a little advantage...it appears a bigger difference]
Lizzie said on 17/Sep/13
@ Everybody I think she only 5feet 4 to 5feet 5
She cant be taller then me
5feet 5 . I think with her flats she only look like 5 feet 2 to 5feet 3 but she probaly grew inch since she had early growth spurt
Elle is now at least 5 feet 3 half to 5feet 6 half look at her and her mother she like 3 to 4 inches shorter. Elle is 5feet 3 half to 5feet 5 but no more
said on 12/Sep/13
@Rob Thanks for the answer.
By the way, I think that Elle's picture should be replaced. She was only 12 years old and around 5'6" at that time. But she is clearly much taller now.
I would recommend to use this picture from "J.Estina SS2013 Photocall" in both pages of Elle and Dakota, because people are always comparing both sisters: Click Here
said on 11/Sep/13
@Jamie I am not an expert on women's shoes, but I don't really think that Elle had a 2" advantage over Dakota on those pictures. Elle was wearing these shoes Click Here
, while Dakota was wearing these Click Here
. So Elle's heels were only 1/2" higher than Dakota's. It's true that Elle's shoes also had platforms that were 1 3/4" high. But I don't think they influence the overall height as much as heels. From what I understood their main porpuse is more about comfort, making Elle feel like she was wearing 3/4" heels.
But I admit my general ignorance about the subject. This are only some impressions that I got after reading about it on the Internet. Maybe Rob can tell us how much foot advantage Elle really had over Dakota on those pictures?
[Editor Rob: with those 2 heels, the difference would be a bit more than 1 inch]
Stephanie said on 9/Sep/13
Elle is definitely quite a bit taller than Dakota. I believe the heights Elle gave are correct. Dakota is 5' 4" and Elle was 5' 6" as of late 2010, but Elle has grown a little bit since then and is now 5' 7.75". Look at her height next to her mother and you can see how Elle has grown over the past few years. Just walking out and about in flat shoes...
said on 11/Aug/13
And here is a second picture in which Dakota is actually standing up straight and almost reaches up to Elle's eyes ... still the same footwear disadvantage ...
said on 11/Aug/13
@ayalo: I don't think Elle actually is 4 inches taller ... the following picture might be a good one to judge. Dakota reaches up to Elle's nose which would make her about 4 inches smaller ... and then take a look at the shoes ... Elle has about 2 inches platform advantage. And (eventhough this probably has no effect) Dakota might lose 1/4 inch from slouching slightly. So my estimation would be that Elle is between 2 and 3 inches taller than her sister, not more ...
Lizzie said on 5/Aug/13
Elle is least 5 feet 3 to 5 feet 5
ayalo said on 4/Aug/13
Elle shadows her "big" sister in every aspect.She is at least 4" taller ,and much more attractive...
liz said on 3/Aug/13
Elle is now 5feet 5 to 5feet 6 she definite sight taller than she sister
Dakota my person is like 5feet 3 to 5feet 5 is hard to tell. She and her sister wear 2-3 inches heels . So that made guess she like 4inches taller because her body type.
Pedro said on 1/Aug/13
@Liz I don't want to be rude, but do you even know how to calculate feet and inches? You are completely contradicting yourself!
First you say that you think that her mother is "5 feet 10" and that she is a "couple of inches taller" than Elle. But then you also say that "Elle is not 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 8". Don't you know that 5 ft 10 minus 2 inches is equal to 5 ft 8? That is basic mathematics!
I think you should start explaining youself by using the metrical system. Because what you are saying in feet and inches is completely confusing.
Pedro said on 1/Aug/13
@Jamie That is a good point and the most absurd aspect of this discussion. Elle's mother's height was never really mentioned officially, but some people talk about it like it is a known fact. While Elle has been talking consistently about her own height, but people like to ignore what she says or they simply assume that she is not being honest.
About Elle's mother (Joy) I have seen picture where she looks slightly taller than her daughter, while in others she looks like having the same height. But I don't remember ever seeing a picture where I got the feeling that Elle looks taller. So I think that we can assume that Joy is slightly taller than Elle. Somewhere between 5'8" and 5'10". My personal estimation would be 5'9".
liz said on 22/Jul/13
Elle is between least 5feet 3 to 5feet5
Mom is couple inches taller than mother so I say say about 5feet 10
Elle is not 5feet 7 to 5feet8 she around 5feet 3half to 5feet 5
Jamie said on 21/Jul/13
How do we know for sure how tall her mom is?
said on 7/Jul/13
@liz Yes, those shoes give Elle 1 or 2 inches advantage over her mother. But you have also to take into consideration that Elle was walking on that picture and that her legs were more separated from each other than her mother's. People lose 1 or 2 inches while they are walking, as you can see in this picture: Click Here
So I think that if both would stand straight, then Elle would have pretty much the same height as her mother with those boots. Which would mean that with the boots Elle is between 5'9"-5'10", but without them she is between 5'7.5"-5'8".
Here is another picture from last year of Elle together with her mother. But this time both have exactly the same footwear. As you can see, the difference between them is not big: Click Here
Lizzie said on 7/Jul/13
Elle flats on she around @5 feet 24 to 5 feet 5 compare to mom who almost 6 feet tall . Elle looks m3 to 4 inches . Can believe she look an more like couple inches shorter than mother which make her 5 feet 3 half. She don't growing anymore. 15 years old.
liz said on 27/Jun/13
Wow. that's a lie we is wearing like boots that give her 2 inches so basically she would be 5 feet 8. But, without boots and high heels she will be 5feet 3 to 5feet5. I don't she will get any taller than now. Elle is now 15and 3 months and Dakota. Dakota was taller than at June event. Dakota around between 5feet 4 to 5feet 5. Elle is no taller than me.
said on 25/Jun/13
@liz Here is a recent picture of Elle walking next to her mother: Click Here
As you can see, Elle has here almost the same height as her mother. She only appears to be an inch shorter. Taking in consideration that Elle has also slightly more footwear, we could say that there is like a 2 inch difference between them. So basically this would make Elle 5'8" and her mother 5'10".
liz said on 21/Jun/13
TO her mom( 5feet 10) she least 3 inches to 4 inches shorter than her. It very hard to see her real height because she always wears 2-3 inches heals.
Pedro said on 18/Jun/13
@liz Do you at least have some pictures that prove that Elle is as short as you say? Because you are always repeating the same message, without adding anything new to the discussion.
liz said on 13/Jun/13
Elle is around 5 feet 5 to 5feet 6 without shoes. I don't think she will grow anymore. I believe that done growing now because she has early growth spurt already. Elle is now 15 year old she look still like kid with 3 inches shoe made her 5feet 9 to 5feet 9 half. Elle is mostly between 5 feet 4 to 5feet 5.
when I was her I was 5 feet I grew 5 inches I looks like 5 feet 5half to 5feet6. I think I am tall or same height Elle.
said on 4/Jun/13
@mina You also have to take the footwear into account. I think that the heels from Mary Elizabeth Winstead were pretty high and Elle was wearing some kind of platform shoes. In this video you can see Mary's shoes very well, though it is more difficult to evaluate the ones from Elle: Click Here
In Elle's case I find it funny how I hear people always exaggerating her height in both ways. There are the ones who say that she is around 5'9" or 5'10", while others try hardly to put her under 5'7". Why can't people simply accept the height that she claims for herself? I mean that she has been pretty consistent with it, taking in consideration the expected growth patterns for girls in that age.
janelle said on 2/Jun/13
Just because you're tall doesn't mean you have big feet. I'm 174 cm and my shoe size is 7 and my 6' tall sister's shoe size is 8.5. Anyways, anything over 5'7 for Elle is ludicrous.
mina said on 1/Jun/13
@Pedro Wowzers.Elle did quite a bit of growing within the last 3 years! Lol
She looks a solid 5'7 next to Mary Elizabeth Winstead.Maybe 5'7.25.
liz said on 31/May/13
@Sorry for the confusing posts. But I make a general statement because I know I about women
Pedro said on 31/May/13
@liz Yes, Elle often wears 3 inches heels to make herself taller. But ALL WOMEN do that on the red carpet! That's exactly why I say that you should compare Elle next to other 5'8" women, who are wearing high heels as well.
No offense, but you should always re-read your posts before sending them. Because you make a lot of grammatical mistakes and sometimes your posts are very confusing to read.
liz said on 30/May/13
Because its true. I am 5 feet 4 3/4 to 5feet 5. she is between 5 feet 3 to 5 feet 5 not 5 feet 7 0r 5 feet 8 because she always 3 inches to make her self taller. She not much taller than she is actually
Pedro said on 29/May/13
@liz I don't understand why you always keep bringing up your own height to this discussion? What does that have to do with anything? Have you ever met Elle? If not, then why is it relevant?
It doesn't matter if Elle is 4 years younger than you or not. She is 15 years old and most girls are already done growing at that age.
Elle doesn't just say that she is tall. Everyone who ever meets her says that about her. Just look at pictures of Elle next to other 5'8" women, like Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
liz said on 28/May/13
@Mina and Pedro Its Hollywood fault to make this poor girl 15 years to make her seen 22 years old. She looks older than me but I am four year old than Elle fanning. I think Elle just says she is tall! I do think around 5 feet 3 to 5feet 6 range . I am 5 feet 43/4 to 5 feet 5 half
said on 23/May/13
@mina Yes, celebrities often lie about their heights. But, in this case, Elle's height claim makes total sense and is as expeced. She was 5'6" at the end of 2010, 5'6.5" in the summer of 2011, 5'7" at the end of 2011 and now she is 5'7.75" at age 15.
Here is a picture of Elle together with Mary Elizabeth Winstead (who is 5'8"). They look like having similar height: Click Here
mina said on 22/May/13
I would have guessed between 5'5.5-5'6.5 for Elle.But 5'8 is way too high.Magazines usually lie by adding 1-2inches.Sometimes more! I've heard it/watched on Fashion Police.
Pedro said on 22/May/13
@Saman Not in her profile-picture. But if you check out more recent pictures from Elle, you can clearly see that she grew a little since 2011. So I don't see any reason to doubt her "five-seven-and-three-quarters"-claim. Because she could have easily rounded it up to 5'8", like most people would have done.
Saman said on 21/May/13
She is not taller than 5.7
liz said on 11/Apr/13
elle is not tall 5feet4 to 5feet5. Dakota 5feet5 to 5feet7 with heels
Dakota 5feet4 but look sighly taller. elle is least half inch tall than Dakota
Elle is now 5 feet 3 to 5feet5 but looks tall but she doent look 5 feet 7
said on 7/Mar/13
@Liz Yes, Elle can be much taller than Dakota. Girls have their growth spurt much earlier than boys. So when girls are 15 years old, they are normally already done growing. Here is a chart where they compare growth on boys vs girls: Click Here
If you are wondering why the young sister became so much taller than the older sister, it is actually not that unusual. Both of their parents are tall. Their father is listed as being 6ft3, while their mother looks like 5ft9. So, the fact that Elle became so tall, is therefore completely normal. The bigger surprise is that Dakota became so much smaller, with only 5ft4. But she probably took more from their grandmother, who is small as well.
Liz said on 6/Mar/13
She only 15 years old and I looks older than that of high heels.two years ago 5feet 3 not 5feet 6 now. She cant be not much taller her sister only 5feet 4 done growing.,I am last year of school I about 5feet 5 but look taller maybe 5feet 6. Elle not 5feet 8 she looks more than 5 feet 3 to 5feet 5 she not much taller than me
said on 5/Mar/13
@Liz I know that those women wear this kind of high heels to make them appear taller. That's exactly why Elle seems to look from 5ft10 to 6ft in some red carpet events.
Per example, in this picture from the "We Bought a Zoo"-premiere in December 2011, she looked like having the same height as Matt Damon (who is 5ft10): Click Here
. She was wearing these shoes on that day: Click Here
I would say that Elle was at least 5ft6.5 while promoting "Super 8", around 5ft7 while promoting "We Bought a Zoo" and she is 5ft7.75 right now. Elle will be turning 15 next month, so she is probably close to being done growing. I think she will still make it to 5ft8, but that's pretty much it.
Liz said on 4/Mar/13
It is hard to tell because these girls wears 3 to 5inches heels. If I were wearing this heels I probaly be taller the both them comband.
Elle looks in these picture like 5 feet 6 to 5 feet6 1/2
In the movie we brought the zoo Premieres 5 feet 4 to 5feet 5 feet 6
Elle looks to me very short which means like 5 feet 4 but might look bit taller than that. She nt 5feet 8 to 5 feet 10. I am same age as Dakota but lot taller than Dakota. I between 5 feet 5 to 5feet 5 feet 6. We look like almost the height Elle.. Elle is now 5feet 3.half to 5feet 6 half but no more than that.
said on 3/Mar/13
@Liz Have you even seen more recent pictures of Elle? Here are pictures from a Rodarte event in September 2011, where both sisters have similar high footwear: Click Here
. The height difference was already pretty clear at that time. And Elle has grown 1 inch since then.
The high height difference between them is almost embarassing for Dakota. Everyone who sees Elle, immediately comments on it. So, I don't understand how you keep claiming such a ridiculously low height for Elle? Dakota is the one who is between 5feet3 to 5feet5.
Liz said on 3/Mar/13
I am same age as her sister I am 5 feet 5inches
Elle us now between 5 feet 5 to 5feet she doesnt seem taller than me.
Liz said on 2/Mar/13
Elle about with heels 2 -3 inches taller
elle is about my height but she taller than sister
Elle is about like 5feet 3 to 5feet 5 now.She is not any taller than that.
Pedro said on 24/Feb/13
@Liz No way. Elle is much taller than Dakota now. There isn't even a way to compare them. Elle is almost 4 inches taller than Dakota.
Liz said on 21/Feb/13
I agree with Mina. I am now same as Elle looks the same height as sister but looks taller than her
Dakota is no more than 5feet4 they look almost same height
Elle is now 5 feet 4 to 5feet 5 but looks taller that of she probbly measured herself as 5feet 7 in 2013 14 half. Elle is now closer to my height because I am 5feet 5
Pedro said on 11/Feb/13
I agree. The fact that they mentioned such an exact height can only mean that Elle measured herself recently. It would also make sense in therms of prediction, because she was around 5ft 7in at the end of 2011 when she was still 13.
said on 10/Feb/13
Elle is 5ft 7,75 in (172 cm) now. She says this in this recent article: nymag.com/thecut/2013/02/elle-fanning-fashion-as-after-school-activity.html
[Editor Rob: seems like a quote she gave]
mina said on 31/Jan/13
Elle is 5'6(168cm)
Tessa said on 6/Jan/13
Let's not forget that Elle usually wears some type of shoe with a heel or platform. I say she's still 5'7". That's judging from the pics of her with Dakota in south Korea, Elle is wearing chanel creepers with a 2-3 in platform while Dakota is in boots with a small heel or no heel (it's hard to tell from the picture)
Stephanie said on 5/Jan/13
Elle was 5' 7" at the end of 2011 but looks to have grown since then... see pics of her next to her mom and sister in 2011 and then in 2012. I'd say she's 5' 7.5" or 5' 8" now.
