American actress best known for playing Max on tv series Dark Angel. In film she has appeared in The Fantastic Four, Sin City and The Eye. She claimed in a 2002 Q&A session that "I'm 5'6" and a half" although later she's been trying to claim - as in Dec 2005 - "I'm 5ft 7".

Comment on the Height of Jessica Alba

alexandra said on 26/Aug/15
she's not 5.7. the max could be 165 or 5.5
M said on 13/Aug/15
She is max 1.65m, no more then that.
Penelope said on 14/Jun/15
No more than 166cm
Az said on 22/May/15
Stood next to her at fashion week. Not taller than 5'4".
TJE said on 24/Apr/15
I remember seeing a picture of G with her and he looked about a cm taller.
Meredith said on 1/Apr/15
I've recently stood directly next to her, and I can confidently say she is at least 5'6.5" (169cm). I'm conservatively 5'4", and she had me by almost 3" -- and we were both in flat sandals. And on top of that, even though she is perfectly slim (and she is, she looks very lovely in person), her body build/bone structure is simply not that of someone who is petite (under 5'5"). In fact, if I hadn't been specifically paying attention to her height at the time, I would have assumed 5'7"-5'7.5".

5'6 looks exactly right.
Silent_D said on 27/Oct/14
167cm is good for her.
GungAlba said on 9/Oct/14
She is no way nearly 5ft 7inch, she is at the most 5ft 4inch
177cmGuy said on 5/Oct/14
5'5 looks too low. 167cm sounds right for her or a weak 5'6
Magic said on 3/Oct/14
It's wrong!She isn't 5'6,I say 5'5.
Here she wears heels,and she is close at Ben Stiller:

What do Rob say?
[Editor Rob: while I don't think she'd be 5ft 5, you could argue at times she can look barely 5ft 6]
Alex 6'0 said on 14/Jun/14
Even with the 1/4 inches taken away from both Alba and Biel it still makes them 1/2 inch apart which looks right. Alba at a solid 5'6 looks right which puts Biel below 5'7 though she can look 5'7 at times
Lorne said on 7/Apr/14
When I say weak 5'7, I mean not over that mark. But yeah, she is more legit than a lot of people claiming it, for sure. I said 169 for Biel a long time ago, so 5ft6 is fine for Alba, and 6.5 for Biel. Timberlake, he's a tough one, but I wouldn't go less than 180, he does edge out Garfield...
Balrog said on 20/Mar/14
I could buy Beckinsale at 5'7" but if you think that she is a weak 5'7" then Biel would be nearer 5'6". Beckinsale edge out Biel by half inch. Alba at 5'6" and Biel at 5'6.5" would be good, which also make Timberlake a 5'11" flat which I think he is.
Lorne said on 20/Mar/14
Hah! I suggested 5ft6.25 for her and 5ft6.75 for Biel just recently, and behold! ;) But Balrog, she DOES look 169cm at times, read my posts below, I mean she is easy 4cm over 171cm range Tobey McGuire in heels, she looks identical to Ben Stiller, and barefoot was taller than Hoffman in heels. She can look 167-168 as well, though, and is definantly closer to 5'6 than 7. 5ft6 on the dot could ultimately be her height, but, I still can't see less than that..(and IMO, Beckinsale herself looks weak 5'7...)
Chris said on 8/Mar/14
Is she above average or tallish?
Balrog said on 8/Mar/14
5'6" at most, Biel was shorter than listed 5'7" Kate Beckinsale. Alba looks 167-168 a lot, but I think 5'6" is a fair listing. This is too high IMO
[Editor Rob: I probably could go with 6.25 for alba and a weak 5ft 7 biel...]
Andrea said on 7/Mar/14
I agree... There are some pics of Jessica at that event, you can't clearly see her heels but i think they are at least 3 inches, so Tom at 6'2.75 would be 6'3.75 in those classic shoes, which means Jessica does look a weak 5'6 at most. Why you keep her at 5'6.5?
[Editor Rob: maybe it would turn out she is 169 earlier in the day, she can look 168 a lot]
Andrea said on 7/Mar/14
Rob, how much difference you think there's in this video?
[Editor Rob: no less than 7 inches]
Alex 6ft 0 said on 17/Feb/14
Lorne, if you see the pic with her with Jessica Biel who is listed at 5'7 here that would put Alba at 5'6.5. There doesn't look to be even an inch between the two. If Alba is more around 5'6 flat then Biel is below 5'7. Id agree with the heights Rob as them at 5'6.5 and 5'7. At worst they're 1/2 inch less than that.
Lorne said on 17/Feb/14
What do you think Alex? I think she generally looks 168-169. 5ft6.5 is believable she measured it, maybe it was afternoon measurement, or maybe 168.5 rounded up? 5ft6.25 could be spot on, but looking at her thoroughly(which isn't too hard!) I doubt she'd come under 5'6, like I said, for a woman her posture isn't the greatest. Anyway, 5ft6.5 is a liberal listing, 5ft6 or even 167cm would be conversative.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 16/Feb/14
Yea in can look an inch apart in a few but most those pics especially the one I posted it looks more 1/2 inch. 5'7 and 5'6.5 may be spot on for them
Alex 6ft 0 said on 16/Feb/14
If Alba is 5'6 flat then Biel is more like 5'6.5. If Biel is 5'7 then Alba is her 5'6.5 claim
Alex 6ft 0 said on 16/Feb/14
Here is a pretty good pic of Alba and Biel together. Both standing side by side in the same type of sneakers. Alba's posture seems a bit more relaxed though if you look at her right leg not straight. Not sure if that's even an inch between the 2. Looks more 1/2-3/4 inch which puts Rob's listings of these 2 to be accurate. What do you think Rob?

[Editor Rob: you can argue in some photos 5ft 6 and 7 look ok, in others maybe 5ft 6.5 and 7]
Alex 6ft 0 said on 16/Feb/14
Any pics of her with Jessica Biel who is listed 5'7 here? They are prob an inch at most apart.
[Editor Rob: there were a few When in sneakers together ]
Jay said on 14/Feb/14
How tall does she look compared to Lita Rob? Since you have her as only 5'5 I'm curious.
[Editor Rob: she can look about 5ft 6 and 6.5 is the upper end of what I'd guess for her]
Lorne said on 26/Jan/14
She's gotta be a solid 5ft6. Watch "the spoils of Babylon", she is consistently taller than Toby McGuire. Toby is listed 172cm, but I think he is 171cm. And of course, she has heels. But still, she is solid 4cm taller than a 171cm guy in regular shoes. She clears 5'10 in heels, even if they give 4in, she is 5ft6. Also, she actually did look 169cm in little Fockers. As I mentioned, they're is a scene in that film, she is barefoot, Hoffman in sandles, she is an inch taller. Also looks identical to Stiller barefoot, and looks taller throughout the movie. I think 168 is closer, but the 5'4-5'5 is nonsense; granted, she gives a shorter impression, but for a woman I don't think she holds the best posture. Anyway, check out "Fockers" and "spoils of Babylon", you'll see, she really does look a little above average for a woman...
Hey said on 2/Jan/14
Hey Rob out of bed im 165.5 cm and the evening 164/164.5 cm so am i a strong 165cm ? Or can i be it if i muscle and etire my back like in swimming ?
cat said on 2/Jan/14
Hey rob what do you think her weight is in this photo?Click Here (one where she is all leather)
[Editor Rob: maybe 125]
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 18/Nov/13
Lorne, I agree def not 5'7 for her. 5'7 is the range where you start to look taller for a woman and she never looks tall without heels. 5'6 is prob right but some would say maybe a little under 5'6. 5'5 1/2 maybe? That's the very lowest I could see her at
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 7/Oct/13
5'6 she looks.
Lorne said on 26/Aug/13
That actually sounds spot on, because she certainly looked 168cm barefoot, but most of the time looks VERY weak 5'6, like 166-167. She's a tough one, but I can't see her at 169, she could certainly be solid 5'6, but she really doesn't look 169, and I wouldn't be surprised if she was a fraction under 5'6. I mean people don't realize this, but a strong 5'7, like 171cm range is legit tall for a woman(with average around 5'4.5) so at 5'6.5, a girl honestly looks tallish, and should actually be taller than many men in heels, and she just doesn't. BUT keep in mind, she almost never wears really large heels(that I've seen) even in Little Fockers, her heels we're very modest, yet she was taller than Stiller in shoes, so not less than 5'8 in modest heels. So I still say she's not less than 167cm, but I'll say that 166 isn't "bunk" :)
Balrog said on 23/Aug/13
I think 166-168 is her range. Look at her next to Hayden Christensen (an honest 6footer) and 5'11"-6'0" range Dane Cook.
Lorne said on 20/Aug/13
But does anyone know what kind of footwear? At that award show, he does dwarf her, but he does wear boots a lot. AnOther pic, he looks 6-7in taller, but her "heels aren't at all big(think it's also outside) but the award show is really telling, if she has big heels you could be onto something. BUT if you watch "Little Fockers"(a pretty bad movie, so understand if you don't want too!) and you'll see, BAREFOOT she looks the same height as Ben Stiller, and she is taller than Dustin Hoffman, in shoes! Barefoot, she is taller than Hoffman. His shoes are thin, but still. Like I said, she doesn't look over 5'6 most of the time, for sure, I could certainly see her being a weak 167cm, but 5'4 is taking it too far. N. How tall do you think she is? Remember, when I say 167, that covers 5ft5.75. I need to see her footwear with Welling, but unless those are some big heels she still looks close to 5'6, otherwise, 5'5 range...
Balrog said on 18/Aug/13
Lorne under 167 is not bunk. Look at her next to Tom Welling in heels.
Lorne said on 5/Aug/13
Yeah, she honestly doesn't look over 5'6 the vast majority of the time, but 5'4 is ridiculous.under 167 is bunk.
Balrog said on 24/Jun/13
Next to Dane Cook she didn't look this tall.
Lorne said on 19/Jun/13
Don't know why everyone is downgradIng her... She's taller, barefoot, than Hoffman in shoes, Taller than Stiller in modest heels, and otherwise almost identical... 5'4-5'5 claims are outrageous. 5'6, 5'6.5 is possible, 168-169cm.
Pedro said on 7/Jun/13
Here she is next to Josh Lucas, Isabelle Fuhrman and Liana Liberato: Click Here
MC said on 23/Apr/13
surely 165 cm
LFtz said on 16/Apr/13
Met her and she's definitely small, maybe 5'4 or 5'3 to my 5'8.5. She was wearing high platform heels (four inch heel with a 1-2" platform) and was still two inches shorter than I am. She is incredibly thin and probably a size 00, that is why she appears so tall!
jen said on 20/Mar/13
In her 2013 interview with Ellen she was wearing heels and was the same height as Ellen(who wore flats),and Ellen is 5'7. If Jessica is 5'6.5 shouldn't she be taller than Ellen in 3+ inch heels.
Balrog said on 2/Feb/13
In the movie awake she's completely towered by legit 6'0'' Hayden Christensen. I thought she was 5'5'' range to be honest.
Jessica said on 1/Feb/13
Someone I know worked in crown casino Melbourne assisted her to her room said she was only quite small, so I'd say she's only 5'4.
matt678 said on 14/Jan/13
Shes a 5ft5 and a half girl whos passed off as taller.
Lo sgozzatore said on 5/Jan/13
If Welling is really no more than 190, she's really nearer 5'5 mark.
Louis said on 28/Dec/12
She's no more than 5'5''.
Louis said on 28/Dec/12
Jessica is definitely not 5'7''. In Fantastic Four she is about the same height in heels as Michael Chiklis. She's probably no more than 5'4'' or 5'5'' but has amazing body proportions that can make her appear taller than she really is.
da_truth said on 20/Dec/12
I think this beauty is only 5'5". She is noticeably shorter than 5'9" Alessandro Nivola in "The Eye". By at least 3-4 inches without her heels. With large heels, she was still about 1-2 inches shorter.
Jamie said on 11/Nov/12
@ Elizabeth: I'm not sure they are wearing the same footwear. Alessandra is quite obviously in flat sandals, but Jessica is wearing Sneakers that could even be Sneaker Wedges ...
Elizabeth said on 17/Oct/12
Hey guys, I just looked at these interesting pics of Jessica and Alessandra Ambrosio at a pumpkin patch- Jessica is slightly shorter, both are in flats. That means AA can't be the 5'10 she claims and/or Alba is 5'6 on the dot. Thoughts?

Silent d said on 14/Sep/12
5 foot 6.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 26/Aug/12
In fact, she's likely shorter than 5'6! Have you seen her with heels next to Tom Welling? She looks way shorter... But Rob insists having her at 5'6.5 and Welling at 6'2.75 at the same time...
Alex said on 26/Aug/12
i saw pictures and videos of jessica alba, jessica biel and jennifer connelly and the three beautiful women have the same height trust me just look the pictures in running for cancer they have sneakers and also you can look the videos
jtm said on 26/Aug/12
why on did she get upgraded to 5'6.5? jennifer connelly was clearly taller than her and you claimed on april 6 2011 post that she might be under 5'6.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 25/Aug/12
not over 5'6!
SIlent d said on 25/Jan/12

here she is with cameroon Diaz. and they look the same height but jess was vering huge heels
nah said on 10/Oct/07
Here are more of Jessica with Dane Cook - obviously a height difference.

I don't see the big debate over her height - she told Rolling Stone and a lot of other reporters during fan sessions that she was 5'6.5", and then suddenly decided to up herself half an inch (not that big of a deal, really) while saying she "wishes she were taller." I think it's obvious that she's somewhere in the 5'6-5.6.5" range - no shorter, no taller.
Realme2007 said on 9/Oct/07
Jessica Alba next to supposedly 5'11" or 6ft Dane Cook. He is slouching a bit, but this picture is still very cofusing. They almost look the same height. She must have on some giant heels. Here is the picture: Click Here
Viper said on 5/Oct/07
Yeah, shes the cream of the crop.
cluedin said on 4/Oct/07
great pic, but too hard to tell with sand involved. Ashley Scott is listed at 5'7.5 and comments have her even taller. Obviously she's leaning in but still, she doesn't dwarf Caan like she should
carla said on 4/Oct/07
Yeah, seems OK. Wow! perfct height, perfect looks...! Every guy in my class loves her.
Anonymous said on 3/Oct/07
she does look about an inch to an inch and a half bigger than caan, making her in the 5'6-5'6.5 mark like she says. looks it enough. holds her own next to giant walker. lol.
dmeyer said on 1/Oct/07
paul waker didnt lok the 6'2 plus he looks usaly in into the vlue looked closer to 6 ft maybe 6'1 in some scene caan looks only 5 in shorter
Viper said on 1/Oct/07
That makes Paul Walker 6-0 at best as well.
Rachelle said on 30/Sep/07
Okay, Iím sure the guys will enjoy this pic: Click Here here she is with Scott Caan, which I am assuming they are all barefoot, but not sure on the ground level.
nah said on 26/Sep/07
... And that is a perfect example of why I don't believe people about meeting a celebrity on this website unless they have a picture or it's Glenn and/or Rob telling the story, haha.

Well, I was rereading Jessica's 2005 Rolling Stone article, and they ask the celebrity for their height. Here is what they said, I just thought it may be of interest to some of you:

"She is five feet six and a half, 34-25-34, and weighs 120 pounds, depending upon her training schedule."
misst said on 26/Sep/07
my best friend JUST met her on a set and jessica was barefoot.. my best friend is about 5'5.5 and she said jessica was a bit taller than her, about the exact same height as me.. and i'm 5'6.5.. so there you go lol
JK said on 26/Sep/07
I think she is 5'5''
Viper said on 26/Sep/07
The absolute lowest you can go on Alba is 5-5.
Dunken said on 25/Sep/07
the lenghts people go just to make someone shorter...
lara said on 25/Sep/07
my uncle is her producer ,it was an private photo ,they told me not to send them on internet anyway,i'm so sorry.but be sure about what i said because i asked my uncle aswel and he said its true.because of effect and this stuff she looks taller.

[Editor Rob: You're from Tehran. The only Jessica you've seen is Jessica Rabbit.]
Mimi said on 24/Sep/07
Lara, would you post your pic? If you're worried about privacy, maybe you can blur your face out?
lara said on 23/Sep/07
i saw her one week ago and i took a picture with her,i'm 5`4 with flat shoes, and we were the same.she was with flat shoes as well. be sure you guyz its true.i always thought she is taller than me but she is not.
KT said on 22/Sep/07
5'5-5'5 1/2.

Mimi said on 20/Sep/07
One of the bloggers I read daily saw her last night at the Good Luck, Chuck premiere and took a picture with her. When I asked him, he responded that she seemed 5'7"-5'8" max IN heels.
KT said on 19/Sep/07
Really Kiki? Can you give some more details? Like..where you saw her, how close you got to her?..etc etc

I do believe she's under the 5'6 mark, but 5'4 is a too low for her.
kiki said on 18/Sep/07
i sow her 5 days ago, she is 5`4`` but in pictures they always make them look taller
nah said on 2/Sep/07
She's, at the most, 5'6.6" like she once stated. I don't believe she's 5'7".
Anonymous said on 1/Sep/07
She's really tall. Like 5'7 probabaly, ont he teen choice awards she looked so tall compared to zac and i know she was wearing hells but she looked a lot taller.

cluedin said on 1/Sep/07
i agree with KT. plus the camera angle seems to favor her slightly. but always so hard to tell when walking
KT said on 31/Aug/07
I think your overestimating the amount of height his sneakers give. I seriously doubt their even giving him an inch.

I understand he has his arm around her shoulder, but he's got his head straight down in pic #2 and they look the same height. I honestly think their similar height, with her maybe being slightly taller.
talker said on 30/Aug/07
Alba looks taller than Caan in the pics,the guy is litteraly hanging from her neck,plus the shoes vs sandsals,i think she looks 1.5" taller than the guy.
Leung said on 29/Aug/07
Interesting pictures, but I think Alba is not standing fully upright because Scott Caanís arm is wrapped around her shoulder. If you have watched Into the Blue you will see that Alba is clearly taller than Scott Caan. I havenít seen anything to suggest that Alba is anything under 5í6Ē.
Maya said on 29/Aug/07
Yup, it is hard to say when people are photographed walking. But she does look around 5'6", if he's really 5'5".
yup said on 29/Aug/07
Here are some very HQ pictures that I think you guys may love. She's in the flattest sandals you can find, and she's sanding next to Scott Caan, who was said to be 5'5" on this website. What do you guys think? Just click on the link that says "Proceed to this site" to get to the pictures.

Leung said on 29/Aug/07
yup, yes that's very true, I read that as well.
Leung said on 28/Aug/07
Viper, I originally thought that she had good genetics and therefore had a great body naturally without exercise, but I read interviews and it is not the case at all, she admits that she must eat sensibly and exercise very regularly otherwise her weight increases very quickly. There is nothing wrong with that, itís a good thing because it shows that she is very motivated in keeping herself fit and healthy.
yup said on 28/Aug/07
Alba has said that as a kid, she was a lot chubbier and that a lot of her family is VERY overweight and that she had to start cooking for herself after she turned 12.
Anonymous said on 28/Aug/07
Alba always seemed quite generic to me. most Hollywood actresses do.

i like Love Hewitt, great proportions, Lacey Chabert is cute as well, Eva Mendes has that "latino heat" thing going on, the small girl from Heroes is cute as well, not many more.

Biel went overboard with the muscles, Scarlett Johansson (sic) is meh, etc. singers, oh man, what's her name? Amy House, or something like that. everyone is going gaga for her, i saw a pic, she looks like a dude.

and trust me, my standarts are not that high.
Viper said on 28/Aug/07
Alba is more of a model than actress actually. Shes got model looks. And I think she's one of those who would be skinny regardless of what she ate. Shes got a small frame. I like her more than Lima actually. Though Lima is the cream of the crop as well.
Rachelle said on 28/Aug/07
Adriana is sexy and has beautiful eyes, but I'd rather look like Jessica Alba. Adriana may have the better height, but Jessica is soo natural and besides having a nice body, she has a flawless face.Jessica has the perfect bone structure.
Leung said on 27/Aug/07
Yup, thatís an unfair comparison. Alba is a popular Hollywood actress that is pretty, while Adriana Lima is 5í10Ē of pure hotness.

Alba has very normal genetics, if she didnít exercise 4 times a week and follow a strict diet then her weight will easily increase just like a lot of regular people. Most people donít realise that her good figure is the result of a lot of hard work in the gym and being very disciplined with her diet.

On the other hand, walking up and down the catwalk is probably the most strenuous activity Lima will ever do. Adriana Lima is a genetically hot.

That being said, I totally agree that Jessica Alba is no match for someone like Adriana Lima in terms of hotness.
yup said on 26/Aug/07
Yeah, Alba isn't the best looking girl on the planet, or even in just Hollywood. She's pretty, but girls like Adriana Lima are way better. She's not perfect at all. I'm not picking on her in ANY way, just agreeing with one of the posters below.
anonymous said on 23/Aug/07
Look at pictures of Alba with Dane Cook Click Here she is wearing what looks like flats with maybe 0.25' heel and he is 6' with 1' heels beased on Click Here there is 4.5 difference between them so her height is about right on this site. She may be a 0.5" taller but no more than that.
anonymous said on 23/Aug/07
talker post a pictures showing their shoes because they can be wearing different heels on and there you go...they may the exaclty the same height! Cluedin, post a link to the pic!
cluedin said on 21/Aug/07
beyonce has on flats in those pics and teri is barefoot (getting pedicure apparently), for what it's worth. couldn't see alba's footwear.

Alba is taller than 5'6"Beyonce(look below) and taller than 5'6" Teri Hutcher.

Kim said on 16/Aug/07
I'm a shorter person myself, and I know that when people are taller than me they never SEEM that much taller to me (unless it's like 8" or more so really obvious) but are actually a few inches or so taller, but people who may only be an inch or two shorter than me seem a lot shorter than that to me. People never seem that much taller when it's just a few inches, but it's always more noticeable when they're shorter than you.
Alex said on 13/Aug/07
I agree. Shortest Alba could be is 5'5.5. Most likely she's a 5'6 girl.
Dunken said on 9/Aug/07
please stop. anything below 5'5.5" for this girl is insanity and bull, at the same time.
talker said on 9/Aug/07
Alba is listed here 5'6.25" and so is Beyonce but go to this link and see that
Alba is clearly taller than Beyonce.

I met her in person more than once. I'm 5'2"...both usually in flats and she seemed my height, if not an inch taller. I really think she's 5'3"-5'4". Maybe with heels she'd be 5'7" haha!
Viper said on 7/Aug/07
5-3 looks to be impossible.
Dunken said on 7/Aug/07
5'4 is impossible for her.
anna said on 6/Aug/07
Jessica Alba's real height might be 5'3" or 5'4" at most. If you can't believe it, go check yahoo tv the 9 and click the videp clip 'alba cook' there she stands right next to Dane Cook(5'11"~6') and Maria Sansone(5'1") Let's say that she wore flat shoes on the day(no high heels) but still she looks 5'4" at most. check out at Click Here;_ylt=Ainon0e3apO23nPkWq5C5VwAZ88F
thekiddd said on 1/Aug/07
She claimed 5'6 1/2" but people will respond to her by saying " Oh so your 5'6"? But they will forget to add the half inch. So probably thought to herself " Well they are saying I am an half an inch shorter than I am so I will just say 5'7". Allthough 5'6" looks pretty much it.
Rachelle said on 1/Aug/07
If you look at her other pictures, her sandals give her a little bit of height. Click Here

I haven't seen her in person, but I have met Cash. So I compared my height from him and me in my head, and I think she MAY be what she claims, 5'6.5"

And that is my post below, don't know what my name didn't show up.
Anonymous said on 1/Aug/07
Here is another pic of her next to the car: Click Here

She looks like she can be 5'7" in this pic, but you can never really tell with pictures, and she is also getting really skinny, which might make her look taller. Ugh, I hate this chick!

Arr, why the hell was I thinking you were saying that guy next to Alba was 4'11. But still with the car at 4'11 she comes closer to 5'7 though.

Some quick Gimp math puts her at around 5'6 - 5'7 with the car 58.71 inches. Obviously a lot of factors in the pic including her tilted head...

Ok so the guy is 4'11 and in footwear looks to be about 5'0.5 with his those boots on and Alba is in flip flops and still towers over him. Weird that she looks over closer to 5'7 there.
Rachelle said on 31/Jul/07
Whoops, 58.71 inches is what I meant to write.

Hey Variant, those pics with the huge shoes... (and what's his name is 5'11) makes me conviced she cannot be taller than 5'6 max.

A couple good comparison shots. Jess looks around 5'9-5'10 here in some pretty big heels? What's-his-name maybe wearing 1 inch shoes or so.

Jess's legs = yum. :)
Alex said on 20/Jul/07
Rachelle, there are more than a couple of celebrities who are hotter than Alba. She's hot but not the hottest.
julie said on 20/Jul/07
its really good to hear that even the most gorgeous people in the world are tall. i come from hawaii and everyone is short. they are like 5'0" to 5'5" not many people are tall. but im 5'6" and jessica alba's height gives me more confidence in myself [:
Rachelle said on 17/Jul/07
If Jessica really is 5'7, I offically hate her. This isn't fair. Perfect face, skin, body, and height! There is no other girl more perfect than her!

Is she that tall? I thought that she was tiny. Well, it's not very tall though.
leonari said on 2/Jul/07
5'5"-amazing body,even better proprtions.
Alex said on 2/Jul/07
Actually in those pictures with him and Alba they look the same height or he may be 1/2 inch taller. She isn't over 5'6 and at the lowest would be 5'5.5. He has said he was 5'6 himself so that puts her at 5'5.5-5'6.
Alex said on 29/Jun/07
We need to know how tall Michael Chiklis is first. He's 5'6-5'7 and was only a little taller than Alba. I'd put him at 5'7 and her at 5'6
Leung said on 28/Jun/07
she wore normal high heels at the Logies, not crazy platforms. My opinion is that Alba is 5'6.5", just as she states.
Mimi said on 28/Jun/07
Leung, wasn't she wearing huge platforms at the Logies? Those give you crazy height. As a girl, I can tell you that regular platforms (not the massive Spice Girls kind) will give you anywhere from 3.5 to 4 in. in height.
Alex said on 28/Jun/07
In the pictures Variant posted with Alba and Chiklis in about the same footwear, Alba looks 5'6 since he's only about 5'7.
Variant said on 27/Jun/07
Definitely hard to say. I could go for 5'5 1/2" Haven't seen too many pics where she looks "tall" in big heels like she should for someone 5'6".
Leung said on 27/Jun/07
Alba and Chiklis are nearly the same barefoot height.
In flats Alba looks similar height or slightly shorter than Chiklis but you need to account for the fact that Chiklis often wears chucky types boots.
When Alba wears heels she can have 2 inches on Chiklis, the recent Logies (Aussie award show) she had him beat easily.
Mimi said on 27/Jun/07
Jessica and Chiklis..Jessica wearing heels is about Chiklis' height. Glenn just saw him and penned him at 5'6"-5'6.5". If Jessica was 5.6", she would be about 2 in. taller than Chiklis. Even in Variant's pics, she looks a good 1-1.5" smaller than he does. The camera angle heavily favors her in the pics where they look the same or where she even looks taller than him.

Jess has on shoes about as flat as you can get 'em. They look pretty close.
Alex said on 26/Jun/07
If Wilmer is 5'7 like some say. Mr.R even said he looked 5'7 in person and I could believe that, but at the most he would be 5'8 as Glenn said he could have been 5'8 at most, 5'7 at minimum.
With Alba I do see around 2 inches difference though and both are in very similar, if not the same footwear. Alba at the lowest is 5'5 and tallest 5'6. Could be something like 5'5.5-5'5.75.
But Rob has Wilmer at 5'7.5
Rob, would you say there is 2 inches between the 2 in that picture below.

Its tough to tell with up close full body shots. Its better from a further distance. But physically I think she does look about 5'6.

Limb length is not always demonstrative of height. There are shorter ppl with long limbs, and tall ppl with short limbs. My ex-bf, for example, was 6'2" and had really short arms...and his legs weren't very long either.

Jessica is standing between Tim Story, the director (listed 5.8") and Michael Chiklis (listed on this site as 5.71/2") and she appears about between 0.5"-1" shorter then both of them. Check out her platform shoes, click on the picture to make it bigger (these have minimum 4" heals). Even if M. Story (who is wearing sneakers) and M. Chiklis has an inch added with the shoes making for example M. Chiklis 5.8.1/2" deduct 4" = 5.4/1.4 at most. Please Glen time to downgrade her. She is an "angel" but she is no 5.61/4 ďangel.Ē
Alex said on 2/Jun/07
Lita is actually more 5'6 I think. I don't watch Dark Angel so I wouldn't have seen that episode. If Lita was shorter than Alba could be 5'6 and change but most likely Alba is 5'6 even.

robotix, 5'6" is a bit short for me, I think 5'9" is perfect for a woman.

5-6 inches between a guy and girl is a good range for a couple but I could care less because I see girls 4'10-5'0 that I like and would love to get with.

5-6 is the perfect woman just like 5-11 is the perfect man. 2" above average.
SCW said on 27/May/07
perfect height for a women?? Well thats in the eye of the beholder. there are a lot of good looking girls that are 5'7" or taller Christy Brinkly types but they are totally NOT my type, someone like Lucy lu, natalie portman, alysa milano are much more attractive, i would never look twice at some giant blonde girl but a cute slender asian girl about 5'2 would definitely get my attention. they are my ideal type not these giant white girls i see around frankly they are no where near as attractive as ladies who are petite, those are just the facts, peace out
Alex said on 22/May/07
I think whatever the guy's height is take away 5-6 inches and thats a good height for the girl. Say a guy is 5'10 then a girl 5'4-5'5 is good for him. Not saying for sure, but 5-6 inches is a good range between 2 people. Personally anywhere from 4'10-5'11 for a girl is ok for me. I'm not picky with height as long as they're at least an inch or so shorter than me.
lillo thomas said on 18/May/07
to me anything from 5'4-5'8 is a very good height for a girl.

She is one of those girls with longer legs, but I still think can be really be 5'6.

its just that her torso is longer than her legs so when there are photos of her from the hips up she looks taller, just like paris hilton.

On a side not, she has a tendency to wear her hair up and back some times. There is a pic of it in Chris Evans fourm. It makes her look taller than she really is

From Jessica Alba strutting her stuff down 23rd Street on Friday May 6th at around midnight. She was working her thing looking at everybody with the "Ya I'm Jessica Alba, back off stare." She had a entourage of about 10 ugly guys all walking on her heels. I've always thought she was hot, but her blonde hair color is awful for her complexion. She was super tall.

Ice, yea our guesses are normally 1/2 inch apart but I agree with you on some the exact same height though. With Rose and Alyssa I was 1/2 inch above what you said then I changed my estimate down 1/2 inch. But 1/2 inch is tough to tell. You got some people who argue over 3-4 inches LOL.

Ice, that happened to me once before. Most of my comments were gone for some reason some time ago.

Maybe 5'5 and change for her but she comes across more as a 5'6 girl to me. I'm not going to argue over 1/2 inch. haha
But in that picture with Alyssa she just seems a good amount taller than her but Rob pointed out she had heels a bit bigger, plus she is a bit closer to the camera. Because I have a friend who is 4.5-5 inches taller and its bit of a smaller difference than with those 2 in that picture. I see between 5 and 6 inches between the 2 in that picture then take into consideration the heels and closer to the camera you'll get no more than 5 inches difference. I remember there was a picture with Alba and Paul Walker on here too that wasn't a bad shot either to compare.

Alex: I think those are 4 inchers. None of my 3 inch heels look that high. In four inch heels, she would be getting around 3 inches of extra height. 5'8 minus the 3 is 5'5. At most I see 5'5.5"
Alex said on 26/Mar/07
Ice, I was saying sneakers about the picture below that Brah posted. Say Wilmer is 5'8 barefoot then 5'9-5'9.25 with sneakers on. Alba is wearing heels 3-3.5 inches and remember heels don't give you the exact heel height. So if she was in 3 inch heels they're going to give her 2-2.5 inches of height. So she looks 5'8ish with heels on or abit more. She comes across as 5'6 to me mostly though. She could get away with being a bit taller with her lean build.

Tim said on 24/Mar/07
5'5 based on the picture with Wilmer who is indeed no more than 5'8-5'9. Those boots have huge heels on them (4 inches) giving her about a 3 inch boost easy and she did seem close to his height (1 inch smaller if you look close) in them. Thus 5'5 with 3 inches extra put her close to the 5'8 height of Wilmer
Alex said on 24/Mar/07
Wilmer and Jessica are both in sneakers in that picture. I've heard of Wilmer being 5'8 before so I'm not too sure on his height. She looks 5'6 to me for the most part but not taller. She is a good couple inches taller than Alyssa who is 5'1.

She isn't 5'6.25 people.

Where do you guys come off thinking she's tall? I've seen Sin City, Dark Angel, and Into the Blue. And in none of those did she look above average in height.

She's about 5'5 on the dot. In Into the Blue, she was slightly shorter than Scott Caan (Probably less than an half inch shorter though). But she's not 5'6.

On her show Dark Angel by looking at her she clearly looks a few inches over the average female in height so 5'6 really is the least she looks to me which may be her real height but 5'6.5 is possible too. Rob, a lot of the time when someone says their height with 1/2 inches it kinda gives you the impression that they're telling the truth because most who lie or don't know how tall they are say a whole number.
Alex said on 14/Jan/07
How tall is Ludacris though? 5'8-5'9? I'm not sure on his height but he looks around 5'8. If he had a good couples inches on Alba then she seems shorter than she is listed but she looks 5'6 to me for the most part.

[Editor Rob: she had converse, so giving up 1/2 an inch]
Alex said on 14/Jan/07
Hilz, it does appear that Jessica had Alyssa by about 6 inches in that picture. Rob said that he saw that Jessica had a bit more heel than Alyssa had on so really it could be a 5-5.5 inch difference making Alyssa 5'1 which I could believe and Jessica 5'6-5'6.5 which she does look.

[Editor Rob: I forget where, but ludacris had a good couple inches on alba, although I think she had on converse, at some gokarting event the pics were from]
hilz said on 12/Jan/07
with that head on shot, it appears that they are 7 inches apart. I'm 5'2.5" and I look like Alyssa does only when I'm standing next to someone who's 5'9". I think Alyssa needs to be downgraded or Alba needs to be upgraded. I'm thinking that Alyssa is more a flat five foot. Many girls whom are five foot claim they're 5'2", and then I look at them and I'm like, I'm 5'2.5". You're three inches shorter than me and I know that i'm not 5'5".
Alex said on 28/Dec/06
Her head comes up to her mouth from that angle, but in the other picture where they she is standing straight her head comes to the lower part of her nose really.
Alex said on 28/Dec/06
Rob, now the picture is much better to see. You say Jessica has a bit more of heel and Alyssa comes up to the bottom of Jessica's nose. So barefoot Alyssa would come closer to the middle of her nose making is 5-5.5 inches difference. 6 at the very most but more likely around 5.5 really. That small picture makes things seem more of a difference then it really is.
Heightfan said on 28/Dec/06
Thanks Rob, I never realized that msn had all those great pics. I found the pics showing Alyssa's shoes which were a strappy sandal type with flat sole and about a 3.5 inch heel. However I couldn't find any of Jessica's shoes. PS Please check Alyssa's page for my comments concerning her pics on msn.

Heightfan said on 28/Dec/06
If you do a search on Google Images of Jessica Alba+Alyssa Milano you can find a slightly bigger picture. This a different angle and I admit that Alyssa's head does seem at Jessica's mouth, because of a different angle. Also Alyssa has a much hotter expression on her face, I would describe it as a sly grin with an eyebrow raised. I wonder if standing next to Jessica was starting to turn her on? Alex, I don't think Alyssa had short hair it is just up, creating the illusion of more height. Finally, Jessica being nine years younger around seven inches taller, and overall perfect combine to make the normally hot Alyssa look like a little old lady.
Alex said on 28/Dec/06
Heightfan, another thing its when I see Alyssa she is just smokin hot but then you put her near Jessica and she just looks normally hot. Her short hair I wasn't crazy about anyway. With longer hair she's much better.
anonymous said on 27/Dec/06
she is exactly this height. know her personally-between 5'6 and 5'6.5 very tall in heels. perfect height, i'd say. flawless in person as well.
Alex said on 27/Dec/06
Rob, how much height difference do you see in that picture with Alyssa and Jessica? Anyway you can blow that up much bigger so you can get a closer look.

[Editor Rob: can't post bigger no, I saw another pic of Rose MacGowan and Shannon...rose looked to have a slight edge and no platform type shoe, so really same heels...

chance of shannon 5ft 2.5, and 5ft 1.5 for both milan/comb]
Heightfan said on 27/Dec/06
Alex, I agree. Being photographed next to the flawless Ms Alba has got to be a very humbling experience for Alyssa which probably accounts for the uncomfortable expression on her face. As far as the height I agree with you about Jessica being a little over 5'6", However, from that picture I see the top of Allyssa's head (minus the hair) only slightly above Jessica's chin. Even if Jessica's heels are a bit bigger, which I doubt, that still puts Alyssa at a 5 footer as I have always believed
Alex said on 27/Dec/06
Heightfan, you know you got a point. Alyssa is def a very hot girl but compared to Alba she only looks normally hot. Amazing how Alba can make girls who are pretty hot only less hot then they really are.

About the height though. Alba could be wearing heels a bit bigger but not certain though. It wouldn't be a full head taller though. Alyssa comes to around the middle of her nose but really a little lower not counting that hair. My best estimates would Jessica at 5'6-5'6.5 and Alyssa at 5'1. I would guess close to a half of a foot not counting that hair.
heightfan said on 26/Dec/06
In the pic with Alyssa if you take into account the fact that Alyssa has her hair up( a common trick to look taller) the top of her head is about chin level with the incredibly hot Ms. Alba. Hence a full head taller and we all know how much that is. Alyssa doesnt look that happy in the pic standing next to a much hotter, younger, more talented, and taller Jessica.
Alex said on 10/Dec/06
Do you think Alba is wearing bigger heels or footwear then Milano? Because she is at least 5, possibly 6 inches taller and Alyssa isn't 5'0-5'1. I peg her at 5'1.5 now after sometime now. Jessica is 5'6-5'6.5 while Alyssa is 5'1.5.

[Editor Rob: yes, I think she's got a little extra]
Alex said on 9/Dec/06
Rob, she towers over Alyssa, but maybe she has bigger heels but even without she has Alyssa by at least 3.5 inches. She appears like 5-6 inches taller than her there. Because Alyssa is like 5'1.5 which makes Alba 5'6 at least which is probably her height. And she has a few inches on 5'3 Rose.
Alex said on 24/Nov/06
Yea, more than often the celebrity isn't taller than Rob has them listed except for a few times.
Padraig said on 24/Nov/06
The maximum I guess is 5 feet 6.5 but 5 feet 6 is probably quite right for her.
Alex said on 23/Nov/06
I think she's 5'6 barefoot, 5'5 seems a little too short. The 5'7 she said was probably her out of bed height or her in shoe height.

Padgraid what is your estimate on her height?
Anonymous said on 17/Nov/06
Looking at the J Lo pic, Jessica Alba looks 5'5". I really think J Lo is about 5'3.5", she is the same height as Kelly Clarkson in their pictures together, if anything Kelly is taller and she is listed at what I think to be an accurate 5'3.5. My 4" heels give me slightly more than 2 3/4" in height. Therefore the anonymous who said she's 5'5" and 5'8" in heels, that makes perfect sense to me and by all the pictures on here sounds about right!

Alex said on 12/Oct/06
For Alba to be 3 inches taller she would need heels 3.5 inches-4 inches. A lot of people think 3 inches heels or whatever the heel is gives you that height in inches. It gives you 1/2-an inch of height less than that heel height. Sneakers on the other hand give you the height of the heel.

She is 5'7. Same height as me.

Alba has said 5'6.5 and most of the time when people say the 1/2 inch or another fraction of an inch in their height then it sounds like they'll be pretty honest. Maybe she's 5'6.5 and the 5'7 claim was morning height.

To add to that, I also think that American culture is perverse in that we 'justify' our worship of celebrity with the idea that they must somehow be 'better' than average people, and when we find out they're not, then we act as though we've been 'scammed', and are entitled to the right to dislike them. Now, down off the soapbox. Say, has anyone heard anymore from Frank2?

And Jamie Foxx is closer to 5-8.

In this picture Jessica Alba looks like she's much shorter than 5'7". Jamie Foxx is reported to be 5'9.5" and compared to him, she should be at most 5'4". It's pretty obvious that she's wearing heels in this MTV event.

I think the funny thing is Americans are getting fatter by the day, but it seems like we hold celebs up to very high standards.

All I'm going to say is,if Jessica Alba is 'nearly fat' this is a warped world we live in!
quitecute said on 21/Jul/06
heightgirl, shes lost some weights but before she was " nearly fat" and definately not " too thin" check the internet. you' re not the only one with hundreds of people agreeing with me
coco said on 16/Jul/06
man you definitely have to see people in person cause on tv they make you look tall
Priya said on 16/Jul/06
I never thought she had an especially curvy body... I think one reason why she always says that "I wish I was taller" is because most guys want a short girl and she wants people to come up in arms to her and say "no waaaay you would be ugly if you werew taller, you're perfect as you are". She's so lame.

What the hell 'quitecute'... Jessica Alba is far from being 'nearly fat', if anything she's at the precipice of 'too thin'. Just do a search on the net, hundreds of other people agree with me.

To everybody if you think she is 5'7 compare her to nicky hilton a true 5'7 and you will see that alba is not even 5'6.5 i know that she is 5'5
quitecute said on 10/Jul/06
omigod sianna i totally agree. jess was starting to look, like, scary thin. but i think she looks better toned than all flabby. not to sound harsh but she really isn't thin anymore. she's starting to look chubby. i hope she slims down, cuz in something like a tight dress, she would look fat, with all her flab on show. ive seen more pics, and in 1, her fat coming, like, a few inches away from her pants. eeewwwwwww!!
amanda said on 10/Jul/06
she's definitely 5'7. at leat. maybe 5 '7 1/2
sianna said on 10/Jul/06
i think she could have had to gain the waeight coz shez doing a movie..i mean alot of actors put on weight for movies..and even if she hasnt mwho cares! she was starting to look WAY to seriously im not just saying this i saw a pic of her n she was as thin as keira i think its ok if she puts on sum weight but yer i agree with u quite cute...she looked the best with her toned body..not semi anorexic or chubby

quitecute, Jessicaís hot body that you see in her movies is the result of months training in the gym and health dieting. When she is having a break from movies and not doing grueling exercising then it would be normal for some weight gain. Itís similar to professional atheletes gaining a little fat in the offseason. But youíre right, Jessica is great looking, my speed.
quitecute said on 9/Jul/06
wat do u guys think, no one is posting back.
quitecute said on 8/Jul/06
yup, ive seen some more pics and im positive i was right. if jessica used to be 110 lbs, she's probably about 125 now. she better watch it!
quitecute said on 7/Jul/06
ok, now i think jessica is a beautiful, fit, thin person, and she is in very good shape. im really into magazines, so i see a ton of really recent celeb pics. and not to sound critical or anything, but jessica has definetly put on some weight. of course, she is still beautiful, and thinner than average, but in a pic where she was wearing a bikini, her formerly flat stomach, didn't have the amazing muscle tone that it used to. and in a shot where the wind blew her shirt up a bit, her stomach was going over her pants, plus the pants looked too small. her thighs look a bit bigger, and a lot of her muscle is covered by a little bit of body fat.for her height, she is still considered ahealthy weight, but she is definetly a higher number than before. another picture showed her in a tight shirt, and when she bent down, you could see a bit of body fat spilling over her pants. now, i still think she's beautiful, but i think she would look even better if she could drop a few pounds off her tummy, hips, thighs,and arms and return to her prettier shape. i think she might have gained anywhere from 10- to 15 lbs, which for her height isn't quite so thin anymore.
sianna said on 1/Jul/06
its pretty hard to tell with her...sometimes she can look 5'6 5'7 but other times she can look fairly petite..a bit lyk her weight...she always comments on how she has this curvy body with lyk big reality the girls as thin as a stick..i mean shez on this strict as diet...i rekon she should go down to 5'6..just coz everyone lies a little :)...i do lol... well not 5'3.5 but i say im about 5' makes you seem taller...seriously
Rumi said on 29/Jun/06
I've seen her in person, she is the height she states: about 5'6". She does not look small and has a medium frame. She does not look small whatsoever.
Abe said on 27/Jun/06
Famke is at least 5'10 I see what tony is saying next to famke at mtv awards wearing sandals jessica was really short and she was wearing high heel if she was 5'6 she would be the same heigh so tha's makes her in range of 5'4 to 5'5
Leung said on 19/Jun/06
tony, Famke Janssen is nearly 6' so obviously Jessica Alba is going to look short next to her. Jessica stands at least 5'6"
tony said on 16/Jun/06
next to famke on sandals, jessica wearing high heels she was 2 inches shorter she is 5'4
JessicaFan said on 12/Jun/06
Nop, i havent seen the show yet, but do you know where i can download it??
Alex said on 10/Jun/06
I didn't see too much of the movie awards but some of it I did. Jessica Alba was looking fine as hell in a nice dress and heels so it was a bit tough to compare her height to others. Anyone else catch her on the show?
Alex said on 9/Jun/06
Trish, many people will actually get measured in shoes which is going to make you 1-1.5 inches taller and they say that as their height and then some just add onto it as well.
Trish said on 8/Jun/06
I used to think I was 5'7 (for like 3 years! haha). Then I had my medical last week and they say I'm 5'6. When people asked me before what my height was and I would say 5'7, they'd think I was taller. Wonder what they'll say now when I say I'm 5'6. Anyway, I bet she really is around 5'6 and not lying about it.
Alex said on 5/Jun/06
Jon, many people think they are taller than they really are. Its not too much where someone just lies about their height on purpose. Its mostly they don't know how tall they are and think they are taller than they really are.
Alex said on 5/Jun/06
Jessica Alba will be hosting the MTV movie awards this Thursday night at 9PM I believe. You know many celebrities will be on the stage so if shes close enough to some then you can use them to measure her up or even them.
jon said on 4/Jun/06
5'7 seems right to me. I'm not saying she's grown of course! People can get their heights wrong-up and down. I thought i was 5'11-I'm 5'10 or so my pyschical said. who know? It's a guessing game-fun to play. hey-even measuring instruments vary-especially the low tech one's used for nonimportant things like height.
JessicaFan said on 30/May/06
In Jay Leno: Tonight Show With Jay Leno - 26-09-2005 - Jessica Alba, Julian McMahon, Buddy Guy . She said that she was 5`2 when she was 9 years old and adding with saying "almost as tall as i am now" So i mean that jessica alba is 5`3 or 5`3.5 . No taller than that. Go and watch the show!!
anonymous5 said on 29/May/06
if jessica is really 5'6" why does she complain about her height? Especially as many models are not all that much taller than her? Fishy....
Alex said on 29/May/06
I was watching some of the MTV video music awards 2005 replay on TV today and Jessica Alba was presenting an award with Dwayne Wade who is 6'4? and Shaq who is 7'0. She was much shorter than Dwayne but it didn't look 10 inches though, more like 7-8 inches or so but I am sure she had on big heels or something but even with that there was no way she would be under 5'6 barefoot.
ice said on 13/May/06
Actually the pic that rob posted is tilted in Alba's favor. If you look at the background, it shows this.
Alex said on 10/May/06
Rob thats weird, one picture Alba looks only 1/2 to an inch shorter than Fox then in the other its 2 inches. With those heels she has on though they do look a good 3 inches so shes going to be 2-2.5 inches taller. So say shes 5'6 barefoot then now shes 5'8-5'8.5 in heels. Say Fox is 5'9 barefoot with sneakers so now hes 5'10-5'10.5 in them depending on the sneaker heels which is 1-1.5 inches. They look 2 inches apart in the pic Mimis posted so the pic Rob posted someone must not be standing up straight or something.
And WOW Alba is looking good there too! LOL
