Kate 6' tall in platforms? - I think not. Even with her tallest platforms, she's not taller than her husband Len Wiseman, who is not 6' tall. He's about the same height as 5'10" max Colin Farrell in all photos you can easily search for. "

Len Wiseman is 5'11" tall, which is about average. You can't judge those heights when Kate is standing in pumps that are at least 5-6" tall. Not to mention they're not even standing up straight.

Kate is every bit of 5'7" tall, because I took a picture with her once, and I'm 6'3".

Len Wiseman isn't near 6' tall. Look at the couple near 6'1" Chris Klein. Click Here
Looks like bluema has been right all along, but Kate always looks gorgeous nevertheless.

It's obvious the doll can't be more than 5'5"
Hannah says on 2/Feb/14
She's 5'5". Doesn't look 5'7" at all.
Hannah says on 2/Feb/14
5'5.5"

@Bluema, you are really creepy, you have comments dating over 2 years and some less than a month. You are probably a 4 foot girl, that is jealous of Kate Beckinsale. Well I came here in the first place to see what her height is, since I met her today in low-top Converse Chucks, she was 5'8" (consider half an inch from the shoes, the rest is all her, and she was rocking some pretty flat hairstyle adding up to 5'9"). The conclusion, in comparison to me (5'8), she is eye-to-eye height, so get it out of your system: she is not shorter than 5'7", possibly 5'6" in the evening.

In addition, Colin Farrell at best is 5'10" in claimed stats while most people suspect around 5'9" and under. Even with her massive platform heels, she's still shorter than Colin on many pictures on the Internet. Click Here

Most actors (even people) lie about their heights, but her body proportions and short limbs are dead giveaways. You can choose to believe all you want, but from what I can see clearly and from her stylist Kithe Brewster's confirmation, she's 5'5".
GREENBERET37 says on 29/Dec/13
It's easily open for debate. Here's what I think: Her actual height is around five feet and 10 inches tall. (No more, no less). P.S. GET THE FACTS PEOPLE!!! P.S.S. DO THE MATH
Jack says on 30/Aug/13
She looks the same height as Taylor Swift, 5'7.5" is about right
Joe says on 15/Jul/13
"Completely agreed with Ms Platform Shoes. Kate is 5'5""

Kate is not 5'5". She is 5'7" standing flat flat-footed. Her husband Len Wiseman is 5'11" or 6', and when they wears heels like that she's a bit taller than he is. If she was 5'5", she wouldn't even be as tall as him, even with platform or stilettos.
Heightcritique says on 2/Jul/13
I've seen he walk close by me in sandals and she is definitely 5'7". Above average height for a woman or should I say for a gorgeous doll.
Linebacker28 says on 20/Apr/13
Beautiful woman; anything between 5'6" and 5'8" is fair.
J.Lee says on 9/Apr/13
She's really tall in the heels I posted below. Rob says around 6 feet. Wow.
Balrog says on 8/Apr/13
She always has looked around 5'7''. 5'6'' is possible too.
Green Beret37 says on 6/Apr/13
If you think shes 5'3 Then explain why her platform shoes give her about a six-inch boost. Personally i think she would be about six feet in platform heels. Either that or i'm just paranoid.
J.Lee says on 5/Apr/13
Rob how tall do u think she'd be in these heels Click Here
[Editor Rob: those beasts will probably take her very near the six foot mark]
bluema says on 3/Apr/13
Completely agreed with Ms Platform Shoes. Kate is 5'5"
I'm amazed that so many are fooled so easily.
Ms Platform Shoes says on 14/Jan/13
It's all about the platform heels guys.
I'm 5'4 and after discovering the magic of platform heels, that's all I wear now.
With my 6 inch platforms, I am almost eye to eye with my 6'1 husband (accounting for his posture).
There is now way in hell Kate is anything over 5'5. Maybe even 5'4.5 but no where near 5'6 or 5'7.
Google photos of Kate at the airport and you will see that she only wears heels/boots/and platformed heels.
For heaven's sake, google photos of her on the beach - she even wears heeled sandals on the sand!!
She's clever and won't be photographed in flat shoes because her height will be given away straight away.
And if you look at her proportions, she does not have the limbs of a 5'7 woman at all.
She's beautiful with great proportions and doesn't need to lie about her height.
I don't know any women who are 5'7 that live their ENTIRE lives in heels.
Sorry, but this deserves a down grade.
Silent d says on 22/Oct/12
5 foot 7.
lol93 says on 27/Sep/12
she is lets say maximum 5'11 in heels Colin is or 5'11.25 or 5'11.5 in his boots Click Here 5'7 or 169 is her height, 5'6 and under now way for Kate,but jessica appears a little shorter than 5'7 she might be 5'6
Rob didnt you notice that Jessica appears 2 cm shorter than kate in the pictures she has with her?
theblacklab says on 17/Sep/12
bluema, I agree. She has very short proportions. For me, 5'7" is out of the question. Between 5'5" and 5'6" seems most likely.
bluema says on 30/Aug/12
Beckham is probably one of the most unreliable for comparisons though. She had even claimed 5'7" and many who have seen her say she’s very tiny and can't be more than 5'2"-5'3" max, constantly on platform pumps as well. However, I agree that Kate is about 5'5" and you can see that easily with her standing next to stars tall enough (nor vain enough) to not exaggerate their heights. The average distance from the eyes to the top of the head is 5” for males, and Kate barely reaches up to the eye level of 6’2” stars in shoes. Even with 6’3” reference point minus 5”, Kate isn’t more than 5’8” in 4” heels in the absence of platforms. 5’5”.
little sue says on 29/Aug/12
Google her with Victoria Beckham, she looks a good 2 or 3 inches taller than Victoria in similar shoes. I would say about 5ft 5 to 6

All evidence points to 5'5"
Besides, I think none of us would know better than Kate's celeb stylist Kithe Brewster when he says she's 5'5." He'd know her exact measurements to hem and taylor her dresses properly.
tom says on 26/Aug/12
more 5-6' imo.
bluema says on 22/Aug/12
We're not talking about 6" heels here with no front lift. If you look closely at Kate's pumps, you can see the start of toe peeking at the top of the shoe with the hidden inner platform of several inches in the front. Thus her feet are not significantly angled in result, which is why she's getting the most of the rear heel height. Even if she loses about 1/2 to an inch at the most, that still puts Kate at 5'5" + 5" = 5'10", just as she looks next to Colin Farrell on the photo (even with her puffy hair). Stop and give up the delusion.
bluema says on 22/Aug/12
You must have a horrible posture with heels little sue. Why is it that my platform heels give me the full lift while yours don't? Give me a break.
little sue says on 22/Aug/12
6 inch heels do not give 6 inches in height, its only the back of the foot which is raised not the whole level, I have just measured myself with and without shoes, without I was 4ft 10 3/4 with 5 inch heels with an inch platform I was 5ft 1 3/4 so the 5 inches gave me 3 inches of actual height
bluema says on 21/Aug/12
No matter how hard Kate tries to reach a higher height in her platform heels, there's just no way she can disguise the short limbs even though she's very skinny. That's besides the point of the following reveal - "The gorgeous petite celebrity 5’5″ Kate Beckinsale (height confirmed by Kithe Brewster) hit the red carpet..." Click Here
bluema says on 21/Aug/12
Please ~ that's like saying 4 inches high heels add only 2 inches of height.
When you're standing straight up and depending on the design of the heels + platform, 6 inch heels do add 6 inches of height especially when posing. Look again - that's way more than 4" in the picture and it still doesn't change the fact that Kate only looks to be about 5'10" in the picture next to Colin in his shoes. Click Here
little sue says on 21/Aug/12
6 inch heels don't give 6 inches of height, only about 4
bluema says on 21/Aug/12
Beehive hairdo, closer. Click Here
5'5".
bluema says on 21/Aug/12
Brian Atwood 'Hamper" platform, 6" heel height.
Click Here
If 5'7" + 6", then Kate should be 6'1" towering over Colin who recently told Leno that he's 5'10". Kate is about an inch shorter than Farrell even with her puffy beehive hairdo and platform heels.
Time for a downgrade?
bluema says on 17/Aug/12
Biel, 5'10" max Colin Farrell, and Beckinsale. Note the heels.
Click Here
bluema says on 14/Aug/12
Can be explained - Jessica Biel is wearing a pair of Brian Atwood Starlet pink pumps with no front platforms, and Kate is wearing Christian Louboutin Daf Suede Boots with 2.5 platform with 6" heels. Kate is posing to enhance the height leaning forward while Jessica is slouching sideways. Anyone who has worn platform knows that it give much more height boost than flat heels, both in walking and posing.
ssportess says on 30/Jul/12
5'7 exactly
J.Lee says on 25/Jul/12
Rob. This is referring to the post below. I really would like to tackle this mystery. Collin is 5 ft 10. Assuming he is wearing shoes, that makes him about 5 ft 11. So if she is 4 inches taller in her footwear that will put them the same height. Yet, she is somehow aparrantly taller than he is. How is that? Also if her heels put her 4 inches taller, how hight do you think her heels are including the platforms?
[Editor Rob: I looked at a bunch of pics and they look very close to me, so I can buy both heights being reasonable, maybe not exact but ptetty close without taking quarters]
J.Lee says on 25/Jul/12
wow rob. look at kate and jessica. Click Here if they are the same height how come kate is so much taller than jessica, even though jessica is also wearing heels? How can this be explained?
J.Lee says on 24/Jul/12
Hey Rob, you got kate beckinsale listed at 5 ft 7 and Colin ferrell listed at 5 ft 10. However in various photos such as Click Here kate beckinsale is taller than him. Assuming he is wearing shoes, she must be wearing heck of a heel to be taller than him. If so how high would you assume them to be or would you think she is taller than 5 ft 7?
[Editor Rob: I think she's a 5ft 7 like she claims, I'm sure she's got a platform on the footwear and could be getting a solid real 4-inches of height out of them.]
Koso says on 9/Jun/12
No way she's that tall. She wears at least 4 inch heels in things like Underworld and Van helsing and still only comes up to Hugh Jackman's neck area. He's supposed to be around 6'2.
Tony says on 28/Jan/12
I always thought she was tiny.. something in her body makes her look small.
