Emma Roberts Height
5ft 1.5in (156 cm)
American Actress best known for appearing in films like We're The Millers, Scream 4, Aquamarine and Wild Child. In a ScreenCave.com interview she mentioned her height, saying "I was also in heels because I was too short. I'm 5'2 on a good day but I was 5'7 or 5'9 in the movie because I had shoes that weren't ideal from running away from a serial killer."

How does Emma compare in height with Rachel Bilson?
said on 2/Apr/16
Rob, do you think Emma needs a downgrade? She is a fair bit shorter than Juno Temple (5ft 2 on this site) in Wild Child.
Editor Rob: her 5ft 2 on a good day I think is believable, maybe she is more 5ft 1.5. Temple can look a decent 5ft 2 range herself at times, there was a body double wanted who was 5ft 2.5 so maybe Juno herself just goes with 5ft 2 and never says 'and a half'.

@Larry S: No one her age grows unless they slowly elongate their legs by breaking them. An extremely painful process and I don't think those extra few inches are worth it.
tc said on 25/Nov/15
Sounds about right met her in 2012 looked about 5'2. Strong family rebelence looks a lot like her dad and aunt.
Larry S said on 17/Nov/15
At her current age (24)she could still grow more if she wanted to. According to what I have read anyways.
Chris said on 3/Feb/15
Doesn't she have a bigger head for her height? This is something that i notice everytime i see her
said on 2/Sep/14
Any idea how tall her Palo Alto co-star Jack Kilmer is? Emma was constantly in flats for the film too, usually ballerina flats or sneakers (Vans) the same as Kilmer.
170cm? 175cm at most? It'd give an insight into four or five others too, could prove important seeing as they're all budding actors and directors currently doing more stuff.

Look at pictures of her with annasophia robb (5ft on this site). Emmas wearing bigger heels and looks only marginally taller.
nofearsorregrets said on 17/Nov/13
Well looks like Emma Roberts suddenly grew 0.25 in. at almost 23 years old,very late bloomer for a woman(irony mode).
someone said on 1/Nov/13
she looks 2 inches shorter than jennifer antison so id say shes 5'2 3/4-5'3
jess said on 24/Oct/13
she looks so much taller b/c of her long (and very thin) legs. i thought she was 5'6 at first. i'm so envious of ppl who have long, thin limbs. my mom is built like this too and she's only 5'0 but everything always gets the impression that she's 5'4-5'5.
nofearsorregrets said on 12/Oct/13
Does this means that if she gains 4 in. ┤cause of heels she would only be between 5ft 5in and 5ft 5 1/2 in.?
said on 31/Aug/13
with Spring Breakers girls. She's like a waif, and shorter than I always thought she appeared.
Ally said on 31/Aug/13
Until I saw her next to the Spring Breakers cast I had no idea how TINY she is! She made Selena Gomez who is slim and 5'5 look bigger than average that's for sure.
Jessie said on 9/Aug/13
Solid 5' 1". Just saw We Are the Millers and Jennifer Aniston looked 3-3.5 inches taller than her.
said on 10/Jun/13
I think she's 5f2 or 5f1.5 at the least because she was the same height as Rashiada Jones who claimed 5f3 but I think Rashiada added an inch and maybe a bit too lol Click Here
Caroline said on 9/Apr/13
Seems right, she always looks so petite. But I was wondering what's her weight? She sometimes looks scary skinny..
LY said on 2/Feb/13
I think she has grown 1-2 inch.maybe 5'3 now.
Silent d said on 18/Jan/13
157cm. She is petite.
Ali said on 13/Jan/13
Id say she is about 5 foot
susan said on 3/Nov/12
i'm surprised at this listing. i know she's a small girl but i thought she was around 5'3" or 5'4" looking at her legs. maybe she's just really thin
ace said on 11/Aug/12
met her few weeks ago,..she is adorable,shy but polite! I┬┤m 5foot3, we both were in ballerinas and she was noticeable shorter!
guess she is 5┬┤0.5-5┬┤1
Hob said on 31/Jul/12
without heels she just a plain 5foot. trust me i know too much of 5'1-5'2 girls in life and shes probably 5'0.5 at best.
said on 10/Jan/12
Rob, if she's 5'2" and was standing at 5'9" in Scream 4 then what kind of heels or shoes was she wearing to give her such an insane boost in height?
[Editor Rob: maybe she had platform heels that were called '6 inch', but give 4.5]
said on 3/Oct/11
Rob if emma is 156cm and she has similar shoes with elizabeth reaser how tall you think elizabeth is.some sites claim that she is 159 but that's impossible
[Editor Rob: from one pic I would say she looks more than 159, it could be the angle adding more height to her.I think with other twilight people she does look 159-160 range ]
Chloe said on 14/Sep/11
Emma is 5 ft 2. She is an inch taller than 5 ft 1. She could be 5 ft or 5 ft 1.
said on 2/Aug/11
She seems to be about the same height as Hayden who's only 153 cms tall
Jay said on 12/Jun/11
Hadn't realised she was so tiny (she looks taller because of her legs), I think 5' 1.5" is about right, and at least she's honest about her height
caro said on 12/May/11
I know she is 5ft 1.25 cuz my dad is a makeupartist,who worked with her on a show and he told me,they were talking about beauty and all this stuff, and emma said,that she is very small with the height of 5ft 1.25 but she likes it the way it is
Chameleon said on 30/Apr/11
156cm sounds about right :D
Lily said on 26/Apr/11
She's 5'7 on a good day, she said it again in a recent interv├şew (Nylon issue, May). It's her long legs that make her seem taller than she really is.
hola said on 17/Apr/11
she's 5'2, maybe a bit taller
Max said on 16/Apr/11
Wow! She seems taller than 5'1"! I guess it doesn't matter what she was measured at
Editor Rob said on 15/Apr/11
Well she did recently claim to be 5ft 2 on a good day.
David said on 12/Apr/11
Shes like 5'1'' - 5'2'' max. Recent pics of her came out at a premier standing next to Hayden Pannetier (spell) her heels were 2 inches taller than Haydens and she was only like half an inch taller than her.
said on 2/Mar/11
looks pretty short here Click Here
hazel said on 13/Feb/11
now in 2011, she's 159 cm
Chloe said on 31/Jan/11
Well I'm 16 and i'm just under 5ft and I don't have much hope of growing any more
Master Of Rolls said on 1/Jan/11
well,the stated height sounds right, if she wants to go further than that, i'd say at most she can claim at 5'3
Anonymous said on 3/Nov/10
I think she's about 5'2"..
Hmm said on 15/Oct/07
AKK, isn't 5'8" the average in Singapore?
Cs said on 3/Oct/07
I think 156cm is correct... she looks short 'cus she's she's small-sized. I'm pretty much about the average height compared to my friends but if you compare me and them, you'd think I'm alot shorter because I'm alot smaller when actually the height difference is only 1-3cm. =]
AKK said on 18/Sep/07
An inch is about 2.54cm, a foot is a little over 30cm. Easy way to remember is that 1.5m is just about 5 feet(actually it's 152.4cm, but give or take). Most of the guys on my dad's side are 5'6, except for 1 uncle who's 5'9. On my mum's side, they also only reach about 5'6. My mum is like 5'3. I'm 5'8, my brother is 5'4.5, and of the 2 blood cousins on either side who are past puberty, the one on my father's side is 5'6-7, and the one on my mum's side is the same height as me. Yeah, being this tall is a bit of a hassle in Singapore, since I wind up scraping my head against the roof on the upper decks of busses. It's worse sometimes if I forget and suddenly stand up from the seat, since I've wound up giving myself a pretty nasty bruise ramming it into the air-conditioning more than a few times.
Becky said on 10/Sep/07
anywhere from 5'4" to 5'5" is average for a girl and anywhere from 5'9" to 5'10" is average for a guy!I am average for my age and my mom is like 5'2",5'1" so she's short for her age!My dad is about average too probably like 5'10", 5'11"!I'm probably going to either stop growing or grow a little bit more
natalie said on 27/Aug/07
my height is just like emma, im 5'1.5" and 14, i used to think im very short compared to my mates who are nearly 5'4" but now when i saw that even celebs can be short, im happy just the way i am!
Kristy said on 23/Aug/07
I think she's about the same height as me. I'm only 5'2" and am 15 and going into grade 10. My dad is 5'8" and my mom is 5 almost 5'4" and all the height predictors say I'm going to be 5'3". My mom's mom was only like 5'1" and my mom thinks I am going to be taller than her since she's taller than her mom.
Julie said on 18/Aug/07
I just wonder if someone can tell me what a foot and a inch is in cm?
I come from Norway, and we use cm only.
By the way, I'm 162 cm, and 16just turned 16.
mary said on 23/Jul/07
im 5'3 and 15..i really REALLY! want to be a model,but they say i'm too short...do u guys know any way I can still grow?
Hm... said on 21/Jul/07
Dun' worry. I heard in studies done, that men actually often prefer shorter women.
Average height for young adults in America is about 5'9"-10" for men, and 5'3.5"-4.5" for women.
meeeee said on 16/Jul/07
i'm 14 and just over 5ft. To be honest i really couldn't care less. I mean, there are alot worser things than being small. I'm slim, okay-looking with long blonde hair. Besides, some people think small people look cute, so stop worrying girls! (and guys) and i'd rather be on the small side than very tall. It can be kinda annoying sometimes cause my mates mostly average at around 5'6, but they've all stopped growing anyway and i'll probs end up being 5'5 anyway. (my mum's height, she didnt stop growing until she was 17!)
Ellie said on 29/Jun/07
I meant to say i'm NOW going into junior year.
Ellie said on 27/Jun/07
I know someone who was 5'1" when she entered high school and is now 5'10"! Granted her parents are taller than mine but it gives me hope that i can grow at least 2 more inches (i was 5'0" my freshman year, I'm not going into junior year and i'm 5'2". my mom and dad are both average heights).
Aix said on 26/Jun/07
bananaman is so right. I'm 5'1" or 5'1.5" but a site says 99% is finished. Nope, I'm still growing and my mom's around 5'2"-5'4" and my dad's 5'6"-5'9". I don't think that's short, we're Filipinos and average is about 5'0" for women and 5'4" for men. Yup, that's true.
bananaman said on 26/Jun/07
Don't believe any height predictor site. I'm 15 and 6 foot 2 and still growing. All the height predictor sites said my best hope was for 5 foot 11
Zara said on 17/Jun/07
I just turned 16 last month and i'm about 5'3-5'4.About over a year and half ago, and i'm probably saying january 2006,i got measured by the doctor and was listed as 163cm.I haven't grown since then and i think i have not grown before i was measured.Seeing this do you think i am done growing,because around age 12 was when i had a growth spurt and when i also started my periods.My parent's are 5'6 and 5'7,pretty short.
Aix said on 12/Jun/07
Erwin it's because she doesn't look that tall in photos but in the Nancy Drew she may look like (you know some, if not all, detectives wear boots, and you never know how big the heels of the boots used in the photo).
jagie said on 12/Jun/07
in a magazine she says she is 5'2 but she doesn't look 5'2 she looks shorter
Aix said on 2/Jun/07
To the editor: She is so thin, even internet movie database lists her as 5'4.5". How come most would think she's as tall as that?
Ellie said on 2/Jun/07
eman, if you are a girl, then 165 (or approx. 5'5") is slightly above average. and you may be still growing depending on how old you are and whether you've had a growth spurt yet. if you're a guy, that's pretty short (the average male height is 5'10"), but if you're a teenager you'll most likely grow a lot more because guys can grow until they're 21
eman said on 1/Jun/07
hi guyz ..umm i see u talking about height ..well i'm 165 tall is that a good height or i'm short =( ..plz tell me !!! and plz tell me if theres any way to get tall like kind of food to eat or something ..
Erwin said on 26/May/07
Hey guys do you think I'm still growing at the age of 15years 10months 25days old? Coz they said that a male still grows until they turn 20yo. And I'm 5'5.5 at this moment. Emma is older than me about 141 days... Haha!
Erwin said on 26/May/07
Aix how did u know her height? As I her books(Nancy Drew) she looks short but still pretty...
Aix said on 24/May/07
She's exactly 3 years older than me, we're both born in Feb 10, and she's 5'1.5 and I'm 5'1. I'm young and still growing so nothing to be worried about!
said on 23/May/07
I found the Teen Vogue article. Her height is in the second to the last paragraph.
[Editor Rob: oh right, cool rentgirl, I hadn't really read the comments on this...but she's older now and sounds like she gave that height. Maybe she's a little under though.]
Aoife said on 21/May/07
I suppose most people who browse this site must be height-obsessed! I am personally obsessed with it and my parents keep bugging me! I'm 5'5" at 15 years of age and my Mom's 5'6" but she had a late growthsuprt to get there. My Dad's 5'10". I'm still growing though, so I'm happy!
Ellie said on 11/May/07
yeah, their height for her is too high, but celeb heights is a little too low...in the may 2007 issue of teen vogue it says she is 5'2". the same age and height as me!
MizzBizz said on 11/May/07
Wow, the internet movie database says that she is 5'4.5"
Wannabetall said on 19/Apr/07
woah cat you gre 3/4 of an inch over spring break?! nice! did you do anything different? eat more protein? that's what i'm trying to do b/c i'm 16 and 5'1.75" but i haven't gotten my period yet so my doctor thinks i'll grow like 2 more inches which would make me extremely happy. but i know what you mean about being obsessed with your height. it's annoying cause like all of my friends are taller than me. it does make me feel better though that there are short celebs that always look fab (nicole richie 5'1", emma roberts 5'2", hilary duff 5'1", reese witherspoon 5'2", and rachel bilson 5'1.5".
cat said on 18/Apr/07
i'm 15 and a half, and i was completely skeptical that i would grow anymore. until recently, when i had a mini-growth spurt. i grew a 3/4 of an inch over my spring break and i am now exactly 5'1". (i, too, am obsessed with height! my mom is always lecturing me about it but i can't help it and i don't know why!) my parents keep telling me i still have a little bit to grow and that many girls still can grow when they are 17/18. it happened to my older sister, too! she grew an inch during her freshman year in college.
Wannabetall said on 17/Apr/07
emma is the teen vogue covergirl for the may 2007 issue. It says, "Also on Emma's ambitious to-do list: walk in a runway fashion show (even if, at five two, she doubts she's tall enough)..."
So, there you go, she's 5'2". she could possibly be slightly shorter and just round up (i'm 16 and 5'1.75" but always round up to 5'2". but i don't know how some sites got 5'4.5", that's waaay off.
mai said on 12/Apr/07
i am really skinny too, but since i am in the usa i gained weight, of course as a foreign exchange student. i am so short and i look so young bc i am so skinny. and in germany everybody is at least about 5'6 or taller. THAT is depressing. i wish i could be at least as tall as jojo
Ellie said on 3/Apr/07
brooke, please do not complain about being 5'7". i would kill for your height! i'm only 5'2" and i'm 16; my doc. just said i'll grow 2 more inches tops, which would be great but i'll never be able to try out for top model (you have to be at least 5'7").
also, emma is listed as 5'4.5"...a 4-inch difference? her aunt julis is 5'8"...oh well i hope she is short, that would make me feel better about my height.
Resa said on 3/Apr/07
yeah shes absolutely tiny! jojo is like.. 5'1 at the max and emma is shorter. shes 16 now, i doubt she'll grow

What about this picture Astrid Click Here

Come on she's not that short.... or is she?

Brooke said on 28/Mar/07
I a" 5'7" and WHAT'S weird is I feel short at times because I am the shortest in my family my mom is 5'9" and my dad is 5'11" and my brother is 6'2" so even though I kNOW i'M NOT SHORT i STILL SOMETIMES FEEL SHORT however there is a chance I could still grow because at my age my mom said she was 5'6". hOWEVER MY GRANDMA IS 5"6.5" AND SOME OF MY DAD'S SISTERS ARE AROUNGD THAT TOO, BUT SOME OF HIS SISTERS ARE 5'10" AND MY MOM'S SISTER IS 5'11" SO THERE IS HOPE FOR ME.
annie said on 8/Mar/07
well, my mom is 5'4 and my dad is 5'11, so I'm shocked because I'm suppose to be taller than my mom. My grandma is short, she is 5'1, but she's the only one in family short. My other grandma is 5'9. I have cousins whose height is 6'4 and most of my aunts are 5'7. Althought I'm pretty happy because I found out that I grow a little bit, now I'm 5'3, so I still have hopes.
Ellie said on 20/Feb/07
I am obessed with my height too! I'm 16 and am 5'1.75" I really want to be at least 5'3", preferably taller. I haven't gotten my period yet, so I'm hoping I'll still grow the 2-3 inches most girls do after they get theirs. By right now it sucks cause I am shorter than all of my friends (my closet friends are between 5'4" and 5'7"). Plus people think I am shorter than about 5'2" because I have no curves and look really child-like. So I feel your pain! But you will probably grow at least an inch more; how tall are your parents? Mine are 5'4" and 5'10", which is why I think I can still be average height.
annie said on 19/Feb/07
well, i'm 17 and i'm between 5'1.5 and 5'2.5, and hate being short! my friends are way taller than me, except for one that is like just one inch taller than me, but she looks tall. i love flats, but don't want to wear them anymore because i'm obsesse with my height. i wish i could grow at least one or two inches more.
Stephanie said on 5/Feb/07
5' 0.5" seems about right. She's turning 16 on February 10.
Remember, if you're a girl at 15/16 you COULD still grow, but there were a lot of girls in my class who didn't grow since 8th grade. They were the same height on the first day of freshman year (aged somewhere between 13-15 depending on birthdays, when their parents had them start school) as they were at graduation four years later, at age 17-19.
Amber said on 3/Feb/07
I think you can still grow, some people still grow until their 18 or older, but it all depends on genetics as well. Most people in my family are quite short, my mom is 5'2" and my dad is 5'7" and I'm 15 and 5'3.5" (I'm short compared to my friends because they're all 5'8" or taller!). At times, I wish I could be a bit taller, like around...5'5" or 5'6" even!
Ellie said on 25/Jan/07
hey i just turned 16 and 5'1.5"... i really want to grow a few more inches (my mom is 5'4" and my dad is 5'10" which are the averages for men/women). sometimes i get so frusterated because people think that i'm actually shorter than i already am becuase i'm skinny. do you guys think i could still grow? is there anything i can do to help myself grow?
Andrea said on 16/Dec/06
yeah for cat and Megan i'm obsessed with my height too. I'm 15 and only 5 ft. i wish i could grow a few more inches but i like being petite anyways.Well now i feel normal knowing I'm the same height as a celebrity.
OK. said on 18/Nov/06
5'5 1/2 is not tall for 13 at all, I don't see what is so bad about being tall anyway. What, would you rather be looking up at people? and saying 5'4 is the perfect height, and it is bad to be tall just makes tall people feel bad about themselves. Imagine how bad a girl at my school must feel (she is about 6'2) she is about 17 or something, and I am 13 and 5'7 and she towers over me.
Jessica said on 19/Oct/06
before i ment to say 5'4 is the perfect height for an adult woman
Jessica said on 18/Oct/06
I'm tall.....im 13 and I'm 5'5 1/2.....i hope I've quit growing, because I hate being tall....everyone says being tall is great, but it's better being short. in my opinion, 5'4 is the perfect height for an adult
Rachel said on 12/Oct/06
Don't worry ladies! I was 5'1 at age 13, and I kept growing (5'5) until I was 17 . It's not that crazy unusual to grow a bit more.
lauren, 13 said on 6/Oct/06
ya, i'm 4'10 and 13 yrs old. i've been too every height predictor site thing, and they all say i won't grow past 5'2. i'm flat and short, i'm so freaked for high school- i'll look like i'm in grade 4.
ella said on 5/Oct/06
emma looks pretty short to me compared to other people she stands next to. i dont think she will grow much more. ive just turned 12 and im only 4'11" and ive been like this for about 9 months now
Megan said on 1/Oct/06
to Cat, don't worry i'm obsessed with my height too. i am 16 and i am barely 5'1" and have been this same height for years. every doctor has told me i have stopped growing and my parents aren't that tall so i am kind of stuck with this height. but i don't mind being petite, in my opinion it is actually a lot better than being tall.
Erwin, M, 15 said on 30/Sep/06
Melody I think your right coz i have classmate a girl who stops growing when shes 14. And by the way I'm 5"4.5 at age of 15 but I think i'm still growing. I think SHe's(Emma)still growing but very slow.
Melody said on 27/Sep/06
Girls usually stop growing by this age. My friend said it's usually 2 years after their first period.
Cat said on 20/Jul/06
Jeez! This site is totally depressin me!!! Im 5"3' and i feel completely petite at 15 years of age! Is anyone else obsessed with their height here?? anyways emma is pretty small so 5 foot seems right to me! X0X0X
Serene said on 14/Jun/06
S, you may be right. But we have to wait and see. She still looks short though, is her mother short?
S said on 17/May/06
She may not nessecarily grow (unless she's a late bloomer) because I'm 15 and I've stopped growing, but Im 5'5 1/2"
Serene said on 4/May/06
Very nice you did there Rob. Very nice. Haha.. well.. according to Wicked Kid, this is the most 'suitable' height to consider Emma as...
Haha..I am evil.
Wicked Kid said on 4/May/06
She doesn't look like she'll get past 5'2". Isn't she 5'0?
[Editor Rob: yes, I'll knock her down a little]
Serene said on 26/Apr/06
5'1"?? How about abit shorter?? Don't look like one..
Even though Emma shares the same age with me.. hehe..I am just slighty taller than her.. but don't think so she is 5'1"..
[Editor Rob: should I let her grow into the 5ft 1 though...that means I can just leave this page and she'll gain that final cm or 2 ;-) Yes, I am letting her away with generosity here...]
Maria said on 25/Apr/06
Yeah, I definitely think shes 5'1 because she looks it. Im really not sure why in many of her sites it says 5'2 because I don't think thats true (even if its just an inch, but still). Yeah, I have seen some pictures with Jo Jo and Paxton, and she looks about 3 inches shorter than JoJo because Jo Jo's about 5 foot 4. I also think that she will grow a few more inches since shes barely 15.
Shay said on 22/Apr/06
haha,nope, shes more like 4ft11.....maybe 5ft, shes like short on everywhere,pics, tv, everywhere.
