Looks very similar proportionally to Gillian Anderson in Silence of the Lambs and having them the same height on here is spot on I think. But like Gillian she could look shorter next to 6ft+ guys and virtually look a midget.

Well, about her height in Silence of the Lambs, the character she was playing was supposed to be very "vulnerable" as compared to all the men around her, so I wouldn't be surprised if they cast tall men around her, especially for scenes like in the beginning of the film

In Taxi Driver de Niro was a full head taller then her (de Niro in cowboyboots).
But who knows, how tall foster was at the age of 13.

I would agree on about 5'3" looking at her with actors of known height. She did look 5 inches shorter that 5'8" actress Mary Steenburgen in movie The Brave One.

In the silence of the lambs, she looks a midget. 5'3 is really her max, 5'2 is a big possibility for her.

Jodie Foster walked right past me on a narrow pavement in the UK so I was close to her. I'm 5-4. She was wearing flats, and there's no way she's 5-3. 5-2 or 5-2 and a half max.

the tomboy broad shoulders gives her that extra perceived inch. She's 5-2

also looked 5-2 in "Contact" against Tom Skerrit, James Woods, William Fichtner 6 footers and even McConoghay looked like a 6 footer against her.

met this actress twice. We were talking about shoes and she mentioned she was just under 5'2.5" and rounded it up to 5'3" to avoid saying the 'and a half' part. On another magazine I found that, at the time of filming Taxi, she was 4'9", and had recently been spotted as at 5'3" with an inch heel, so basically, my guess is she is a few millimetres over 5'2"

saw Jodie and Denzel in The Inside Man. If Denzel is 6 feet, Jodie is 5'2.5" at best.

Hmm, only a transcription but Esquire 1982, "In the beginning of school [Yale] I had tried desperately to be five foot four. Now I was five foot four. I was elated".

I'd believe her at 5'3 with sneakers.
