Anything below 5'4 is short for women.

5 foot 2 is correct

A good 5'2 a petite woman? Come on. Is just a little short.
5, 5'1 are proper short women

A few minutes later.....
Yup, Audrey Hepburn was 5ft6.5; a whole 4 and a half inches taller than Jennifer, who played her. That's quite a lot!
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Jan/17
I saw Jennifer in 'The Audrey Hepburn Story' and never did it occur to me that she was only 5ft2! I expected her to be the same sort of height as Ms Hepburn herself! (about 5ft6 for Hepburn? I'll check!)

It's strange that in the movie " Garfield " she has the same height with flat shoes as Breckin Meyer . Breckin Meyer played also with Amy Smart who is 5foot6 and he had the same height as Amy Smart in that movie . Breckin Meyer is 5foot5 and a half . How can she almost win 4 inches with flat shoes ( Ballerina shoes ) to look almost 5foot6 ?

5'2" is spot on. So Pretty and so nice / professional.

She's gorgeous no matter how tall she is.. And of course a Texas babe..

I really like her. :)
5ft2 is right, she is quite petite.
Flora said on 18/Mar/15
Never knew she was short.i think she looks tall because she is wearing heels .but I still like her no matter how tiny she is.

Jenny was the fourth celebrity Vickie and I met four years ago on our California vacation. This was at Disneyland,with 5'2" Jenny wearing shorts,sandals,and a Dodgers sweatshirt. She's proof petites ARE pretty,as are other "petiteables" like Cathy Rigby,Susan Lucci,Melissa Joan Hart,Patty Duke,Patty Heaton,Jane Powell,and Barbara Mandrell.Jenny looks and feels good in anything she wears,from gowns to shorts. She's a nice woman,too. Love you,Jenny!
Greg Lehmann said on 27/Jun/14
I guess 5'2" is Jenny's correct height,but she's small framed and small boned.Yet she's pretty.
Len said on 12/Mar/13
5'2" seems spot on. She's a petite little thing.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 19/Feb/13
Gets listed at 5'3 sometimes too but if she claims 5'2 I'm almost sure shes no more than 5'2. Maybe 5'1.5 at worst but looks a legit 5'2 girl though

157cm and one of the hottest actresses in hollywood.
SK said on 23/Jul/12
I saw her last year, and 5'2" (possibly even 5'1") sounds right for her. She was wearing a skirt with 4-5 inch heels, and she was average height with high heels on. She was tiny in height, but not in body type. I always thought she would be thin, but I was shocked to see how big her lower body was compared to the rest of her body. She has a very slim face, so she gives the impression of being thin when you see her sitting down, but her legs and lower body were disproportionately big when I saw her. She was very pear-shaped with surprisingly thick legs. It was weird. I thought the magazines were just being harsh when they would talk about her weight gain a few years ago, but I was shocked, too.

This is how tall she is.

Here she is standing next to 5-4 Deena Kastor.
gessy said on 9/Nov/11
who cares.this height obsession with people is ridicules.are people that insecure they have to try and find something they think is wrong with someone to make themselves feel better?or is it ignorance?the height complex comes from all the people making fun of shorter people so don't blame small people for something society pushed on them=truth.there are things much more important like heart for one.
Person said on 23/Sep/11
At the moment, she's 32..not 34..LOOOOL. She's so sweet though, and really pretty.
Viper said on 19/May/11
She aint 34, LOL
gregory lehmann said on 18/May/11
Sweet! That 5'2" Jenny is.She's cute,too. And her 95 pound weight is a bit small for 5'2" women,but give 34 year old Jenny credit on keeping her weight calm. She's a nice Size 5 Junior Petite who's fun to watch.
Alex said on 15/May/11
Min 5'1, max 5'2 for her. Shes smokin though.
gregory lehmann said on 10/May/11
Jenny is a cute 5'2" and looks good in anything she wears,like in the Internet picture I have of Jenny in a sweatshirt,jeans,cute suntan knee/highs,and blue/white tennis shoes. You're sweet,too,Jenny!
Legend said on 7/May/11
She's amazing :)
6'''2dude said on 21/Mar/11
come on guys, its never always about shorter girls r hotter than taller girls n vice versa, i for one thinks that with short celebrities existing, this goes to show that u can still be hot even tough ure short
anywa, i thought Jenny is 5'7 ?? but its stated to be 5'2 ?? waw, thts i duno, i just really thought she was 5'7
Rox said on 26/Feb/11
I've met her a couple of times 5'2'' is correct I'm 5'3'' and she's about my height. 5'5''-5'6'' when she's wearing heels. She's a very beautiful woman, more so in person than on t.v. she has a rockin' bod. I've met a few celebrities and make-up can do some wonders but she is quite beautiful in person.

@mike says on 10/Dec/10
That pic is fake... I can put a scale behind me and "proof" in a photo i'm 6'2" tall... but i'm NOT... I'm about 5'6"! I know for a fact she's quite short... I like short women and LOVE Hewitt :oP
marwa said on 3/Jan/11
im 5'1, and i love short galz like me ,it is so weird hw ppl prefer tall galz but when it comes to men the rule is different!!!
Bon said on 5/Dec/10
I generally find women in 5f2-5ft9 range most attractive, but it it all depends really.
yve said on 23/Nov/10
Sorry why would only short women be sexy??? I'm just under 5'5" with nice long legs intelligent (I'm a nurse) gorgeous long thick hair, great personality, genuine person etc....all guys say on so sexy....its not in the size....its integrity sincerity confidence and how you make others feel.
myspace celebrity said on 6/Oct/07
was she taller or shorter than lacey chabert? if shes taller than maybe 5'6.25 with brandy
and if shes shorter than the 5'2 is perfect
Anonymous said on 8/Sep/07
Well (on Franko's picture of JLove on NBC)..isn't that Conan O'Brien? Isn't he like 6'4"??? So it would make sense he'd tower of her..5'2" seems accurate.
supes78 said on 8/Sep/07
I just got through watching the first Last Summer movie with her and I was shocked to see that she and Sarah Michelle Geller were the same height in every scene. I thought Hewitt was around 5'6" tall for the longest time. Now I'd say 5'3" max.
Franco said on 1/Sep/07
oh yeah i forgot to say......she's the sweetest person ever, she's totally different than most actresses who show off, shes very down to earth and funny,
saw her on LENO i was like WOW.
im sure GLENN can testify on this, she's very kind.
said on 1/Sep/07
on NBC she had big heels that night.
she's definetely 155-157cm
Dunken said on 25/Aug/07
she has AMAZING proportions, which is why most people think she's taller than average.
in reality, she's an hair shorter than her former Party of 5 co-star, LAcey Chabert and a few inches shorter than the other former co-star, Neve Campbell.
but again, her (incredible) body gives the impression she's taller than both of them.
Jennifer said on 25/Aug/07
Are u kidding me or what? Come on! She seems about 5'7 or something!
Anonymous said on 13/Aug/07
no way! she is taller than 157, in that movie (last summer, bla bla) she looked not that little near Brandy(1.70) so she may be 5'4'' i think!
Kathryn said on 10/Jul/07
yes, maybe she is 5'2''.but it can´t be because if u all would take a LITTLE look at my photo every person who isnt blind is able to see that she is way taller than sarah. and sarah is never ever 5'1'' or sth. because it would absolutely make no sense! so just think of it again...
Anonymous said on 4/Jul/07
Baby, acting is NOT the same as modeling. So, Reese Witherspoon (5'2") is short for a Hollywood actor! Salma Hayek (5'2"), Sally Field (5'2"), Natalie Portman (5'3"), the Olsen twins (5'1"/5'2"), Carmen Electra (5'3"), Hilary Duff (5'1")...I'm getting tired of writing this long list of celebrities on the shorter side.
...Stop being so ignorant. Just accept it. She is what she is. 5'2".
baby said on 2/Jul/07
I doubt she is 157cm only? That is really short!! Especially for a Hollywood actress. She was the girl in I know what you did last summer right..she was taller than Sarah Michelle Geller..she can't be 157cm only..maybe 162?
Viper said on 1/Jul/07
She looks 5-2 to me.
Kathryn said on 1/Jul/07
ah, really? joke? well, then look at my photo again. jenn is definitely 4 inches taller than sarah in that one. and sarah is slightly under 5'3'' and with sneakers she is 5'3''. any questions?
leonari said on 1/Jul/07
5'4" is such a joke...you kids have no clue...
jessie said on 1/Jul/07
well shes definitely not 5"6.. im 5'6 and i can tell she is def. smaller. she looks taller now than she used to.. id say between 5'3 and 5'4
Kathryn said on 29/May/07
my godness...sdarh isn´t 5'0''...5'0'' is 153 cm and that would make her 20 cm smaller than ryan phillippe who is a little over 5'7''!!and that makes no sense becuase sarah did never look like 20 cm smaller than ryan phillippe. otherwise ur blind....and jenny is way taller than her...she´s 5'4''...look at my pic!! sarah is 2.5 inches smaller than jenny and 5 inches smaller than ryan. so jenny is 5'4'' or maybea little taller.
anonymous said on 26/May/07
she is DEFINITELY taller than sarah michelle gellar. I think even in when SMG wears heels JLH is taller than her. i think SMG is 5'0 or 5'1 and JLH is 5'1 5'2. They are both very petite and pretty!
Thomas Z said on 1/May/07
I love her on ghost wishperers. She did put on heels on that show from time to time. I pretty sure. I noticed her taller in some scenes then in others.But who cares she not far off from the average 5ft4in white american girl. Many websites did average heights for women. In japan the average height is even smaller.
said on 18/Apr/07
here is the pic where where u definitely see that Jennifer is way taller than 5'2'' in contrast to "no smaller than 5'2''" Sarah M. Gellar. Check it out and u´ll see : Click Here
Kathryn said on 12/Apr/07
well...i would say 5'3.5'' tops. but hey...maybe she´s taller. but i don´t understand why she always gets listed in that 5'2'' -3'' corner ´cause other stars who are that height, get listed at taller heights. i even wondered about Jennifer being 5'3'' because she always looked taller in films. so i agree with ME. there is a chance, she´s taller.
me said on 5/Apr/07
last i saw her she was wearing some tall boots and was nearly my (5'8) height so i'd guess 5'4. She is not as small i person.
Kathryn said on 3/Apr/07
well....i take back my last comment, okay?=)well...I looked at her on some Ghost Whisperer episodes and she looks like..well...5'2'' - 5'3.5''.because she is taller than sarah michelle gellar (5'3'') but there´s not a huge height difference. u can see that in i know what u did last summer. so 5'3'' or an half inch smaller.
leonari said on 25/Mar/07
Crazy: if you believe Love Hewitt to be 5'5" YOU ARE CRAZY!
Crazy said on 24/Mar/07
Well i dunno but in the garfield movie in the scene in which she kisses Brekin Meyer they look about the same height + you see her shoes afterward and they are nor high heels... Meyer says he's 5'5 so shed have to be too. But who knows, if she says shes short youd think she is. on the other hand im a girl and 5'6 and id LOVE to be shorter...
Michele said on 3/Mar/07
I dunno. SHe was on Trya show yesterday and looks a great deal taller than 5'2 sitting nect to Tyra. Didn't see her walk onstage tho'. She also looks heavier than I recall.
Dunken said on 18/Feb/07
JLH is 5'2, 5'2.5 max.
no way she's taller than that.
Kathryn said on 17/Feb/07
Jennifer Love Hewitt is way than sarah m. gellar , 5'2.5'',she has to be 5'5'' or 5'6''. Take a look at this photo.
ian said on 31/Dec/06
xox, maybe those celebs think being short and petite are cute
Viper said on 30/Dec/06
She looks dead on 5-2, nothing over that.
xox said on 29/Dec/06
ok um why would a small person degrade their height...especially if it's a celebrity.. start using common sense.
kim said on 29/Dec/06
yeah. i think she's around 5'3 too. i think these celebrities are too busy to measure their recent heights, some might even forgot their heights and just say their height just like they want it.
heightfan said on 26/Dec/06
Kim, I agree she is closer to 5'3. In I Know What You Did Last Summer she was in sneaks the entire movie and was the same height as Sarah Michelle Gellar in heels. In the only scene with SMG also in sneaks JLH was at least 2 inches taller.
kim said on 21/Dec/06
i think she's at least a 5'3.. she looks taller than 5'2 in ghost whisper.. but she's still very petite.
Alex said on 4/Dec/06
If she said she was 5'2 then you can throw the 5'3 listing out the window because extremely rare will a celebrity downgrade themself by at least an inch. She does only looks 5'2ish anyway, very nice body though with boobs pretty big for her leaness but shes pretty hot though.
Franco said on 16/Nov/06
oh lord....5.2 only? i thought she's like 5.5 minimum. incredible.
leonari said on 18/Oct/06
ralph: where do you read nonsense like that?? this girl is tiny...But soooo hot. 5'6.5"..LOL... unbelievable
ralph said on 17/Oct/06
I read she is 5'6.5"!!!!!!!
Lena said on 5/Oct/06
Jenny is small and thin. In heartbreakers it`s visible that she`s about 1.57cm But she is one of mine the most favourite actresses,I like u
Editor Rob said on 20/Sep/06
Back in 1996, Kansas City newspaper, said "I'm Really short, 5 foot 2 inches"
wwildhoney said on 15/Aug/06
she is indeed 5 feet 2 i met her at a cafe in montreal and we took a picture together and she had no heels, i'm 4 feet 11 she was a couple of inches taller not more that , and she'e pretty without make up
Glenn said on 27/Jul/06
This is 6-5 Larry correct? lol.
Larry said on 27/Jul/06
Glenn, 6-5 project dude: At 8 AM this moring I was 196 cms & now (just before bed), I'm 195 cms. So, I lost a full cm during the day & it was a LIGHT day. :-)
Glenn said on 26/Jul/06
Your 6-5.a 6foot guy would look short to you.I WAS 5-7 in only a few pics.95% of the pics Im between that and 5-8 due to compression like larry sez.why would I lie about 5-8? in fact,sometimes I look taller.
Larry said on 26/Jul/06
Well, everybody's height varies during the day. Rob convinced me of that when I took measurements of myself over a 2 week period. I'm sure the "compression" varies, but I lose a full cm (sometimes 12 mm) during the day & I average 195.5 cms tall.
6-5 project dude said on 24/Jul/06
yea i don't think glen is 5'8 either, when i saw him he was shorter than neo compared to me by an inch perhaps, so he's round 5'7
Maria said on 8/May/06
I do think shes 5 foot 2 or 5foot 2.5 because she looks petite and tends to wear big heels. Either way, she shouldnt' have to worry about that since she does have a supermodel body.
Glenn said on 19/Apr/06
5-3.true about that!
RentGirl said on 18/Apr/06
what does Glen say about her height?
[Editor Rob: you think glenn noticed her height? WIth women, Glenn is only interested in one thing - smooching up to them!.... j/k ;-)]
Greg said on 16/Apr/06
she can look anywhere from short (5'2ish) to about average (5'5ish). in "i know what you did last summer" she appeared 2 or 3 inches taller than smg. there have been other films where she looks quite small. who knows....i would guess 5'4
Pierre said on 12/Apr/06
or seacrest is really shorter
said on 3/Apr/06
I find this picture funny, because if Ryan Seacrest is 5'9" like he claims Jennifer Love Hewitt would have to be in 6" heels, that is unless she is really taller.
Serene said on 13/Feb/06
She was small in Garfield the Movie wearing that red tube. Really small..could be 5'2" only??
Alex said on 8/Feb/06
Shes petite. She could be anywhere from 5'2-5'3. Shes not under 5'2 but not over 5'3, but I've seen her listed at 5'3 often.
ice said on 1/Feb/06
Okay, why would she downgrade her height, and she's under average height. I believe the 5'2. If she says she's that height, I believe her to be that height. Lying would not be beneficial to her. She's already tiny.
Anonymous said on 31/Dec/05
okay .. from 5 foot 2 to 5 foot 8 is a big difference
what the hell ? hahah i think shes around 5 foot 2 - 5 foot 3
Anonymous said on 17/Dec/05
there is no way she is 5'2''. i think somewhere around 5'7'' to 5'8''.
J. said on 15/Dec/05
She's 5'8", eh? Hey Rob, give the woman the 6.5 inches she deserves. ;-)
Viper652 said on 15/Dec/05
What the hell??? That 5-8 has to be a typo

If she really is 5'2.5, why does she appear taller than Sarah Michelle Gellar in this pic?
she is tiny

Jennifer always had to wear heels in the movie "heartbreakers" and her co-star looks nearly a foot taler than her, she is 5"11 and i have no doubts jennifer is 5"2 link
Anonymous said on 18/Jul/05
Question is, why would Jennifer wanna make herself shorter??
pootie said on 31/May/05
breckin is 5'5", which is why hewitt is the same height in heels.
said on 3/May/05
She is 5'4 for sure. look how tall she is next to breckin meyer http://j-love.net/picturegallery/displayimage.php?album=265&pos=1558 she is 2 inches taller than alisa millano
[Editor Rob: Yes the 5ft 3 for Hewitt is reasonable, but is she downgrading her height by 2 inches...or is she telling the truth? There's a good scene where she is walking in big heels beside Sigourney in heartbreakers (and then 'falls over') and 5ft 3 does look possible, but Jennifer does love big heels a lot of the time...But breckin...he's wearing trainers and still looking short. When he's in shoes he always seems to magically grow a bit! Stiller]
