Lol, she's friends with Mcconaughey that's why she claims 3/4 more

Rob, how tall do you think Kate would stand in these shoes she just wore at the Golden Globes? Are these
Editor Rob: they are a very large heel, should give her around 5 inches.

She also looks taller than Jessica Alba in every photo. Jessica Alba must be in the 5'5.5-5'6" range then and not the 5'6.25" you have her listed as.

She looks 5'5 next to 5'10 Gisele, both are in platform heels. 5" difference.

i notice she always wears big chunky platform shoes. maybe conscious about her height? idk, but she looks above average to me. that's all i can say.

Doesn't even look 1 inch shorter than Anne Hathaway, could be 5'6,5"

With 5'8" Agyness Deyn, Deyn in non platform heels Kate in platforms in this dress. Kate is 5'4".

She would be the same height or taller than Matthew on that pic with those heals if she was almost 5'7''.. Pleaseeeee Kate...
jtm said on 9/Aug/14
she was struggling to look the same height as ashley greene and much shorter than zach braff with heels. her almost 5'7 claim is a joke. 5'4 is much more realistic.
az said on 15/May/14
see her all over the place. 5'3-4". very small.
Dom said on 8/Apr/14
Looks a strong 5'6"
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/14
Yeah she looked shorter in Almost Famous. I absolutely love her. Matt from Muse is a very very lucky guy!!!! She's one of the coolest chicks going. One of the actresses I'd like most to spend a week with, she' d be a helluva lot of fun!

167cm could be closer

Jane, I agree with you that Kate is probably 5'3" or 5'4". She claims to be 5'6.75", which is basically 5'7", but she has never looked anywhere near 5'7" or even 5'6". She just doesn't have the body length. Also, someone who is that height would easily look 5'9"-5'10" in heels, but she's never looked that tall even in heels (see the photo above). She's been in all those Ann Taylor ads for a few years now, and they rarely photograph her standing up. Most of the Ann Taylor photos are of her sitting down or from the waist up. It's highly unlikely that they would do that with someone who is 5'6.75".

Eva Green states her height as 5ft 6.75 (1.68 m). Eva looks highest

i doubt she is 5'6. she looked 5'4 in almost famous.
Hoghead said on 20/Apr/13
Eh, sorry. Met her in LA last october with my girl at LAX. My girl is 5'9'' and is a ballerina and Kate was as nice and friendly as can be. Kate made a comment about my girls lean legs being so long for only being 5'9" and Kate stated she was 5'6 1/2". Direct from the horses mouth as they say!

She looks 5'6ish to me.
Silent d said on 10/Oct/12
5 foot 6. No way she is 5 foot 3 jane. She was always around that range.
Jane said on 9/Sep/12
She's not 5'6 for sure. My sister is almost 5'7 and met Kate. She was wearing at least 4 inch heels and was only about one inch or half and inch taller than my sister, who was in flats. I'd say she's probably only 5'3 or 5'4.
Roy said on 27/Dec/11
What's wrong with being a wee bit shorter? Less to feed, less material to clothe and remember, good things come in small packages! ;)
SK said on 30/Nov/11
Aims, 5'5" isn't "short" for a woman. The average height for women in the U.S. has been 5'3"-5'4" for many years. While 5'5" isn't tall, it's definitely not "short," especially if the person is thin. I think the problem is that so many women who are really 5'3"-5'4" inflate their heights to 5'5" that it seems shorter than it is. Also, contrary to what you wrote, people in the U.S. have not necessarily gotten taller over the years. Studies have shown that the U.S. boasted the tallest average height in the world at one time, but (1) Americans have actually gotten shorter and fatter recently because of the American diet; and (2) other countries have caught up with, and even surpassed, Americans in height. In fact, the U.S. now has one of the shortest populations among advanced nations.

Pretty much same height as anne hathaway even though anne is a little taller. 5 foot 6.
mat said on 12/Nov/11
kostas, i think you're Greek because of the name..I'm Greek too..5'6 is tall for a woman, especially in our homeland..the average is around 5'4 back there

Kostas says on 14/Sep/11
i find her very attractive...i could care less about her height...
Think you've missed the point, people aren't saying there is anything wrong with her height, people are just debating her height. She is far from short!

Dom the average woman is 5 feet 5 inches so most woman are on the shorter side
Lenad is sexy said on 22/Jun/11
Looked 1-1.5 inches taller than the 5'5 (at most) Ginnifer Goodwin. 5'6 is accurate
Aims said on 28/May/11
Whoever said 5'5 isn't short really needs to start looking at the trend of taller people in this world. These days 5'5 is kinda on the short side. It's all the steroids in food - people are getting way taller. They need to upgrade the national height charts. 5'6 is more average for a woman and 5'11 for a man - at least...
Lenad is sexy said on 14/May/11
She and her mother look pretty much the same height.
Lenad is sexy said on 21/Apr/11
I'd say 5'6-ish
Dom said on 19/Apr/11
Kel first of all, 5'5" is not short for a woman, it's taller than average and second of all her mother is 5'6" and so is she.
Lenad is sexy said on 26/Mar/11
looks a good 5'6
ai said on 9/Mar/11
I read in a 2005 in style magzine article that Kate stands at 5'6 , hope that helps :)
mememme said on 24/Feb/11
she looks 5'6 right on rob
kel said on 24/Feb/11
she looks short and petite like her mother so i would say she's more 5,5" tall.
Helga said on 30/Jan/11
@ Chels: Haha it's the same with me, but the other way round. When I was young I loved to be small, but now I wish to be tall...I would do anything to be 5'10!
jake said on 4/Jan/11
for what it's worth Chels I find 5' 10" a great, attractive height for a woman.
dana said on 29/Nov/10
she looks 5`5
suburbanite said on 26/Jul/07
I saw her last year doing an interview in NY. She walked right past me. She is incredibly petite. I am 5'5.5" and she was shorter even in platform shoes. She MIGHT be as tall as 5'3" but no taller.
said on 25/Jun/07
All this discussion about Kate's shoe size help me narrow her size down to 6.5. Check it out here: Click Here

u idiots, shoe size has got nothing to do with height!
Jessica said on 11/Apr/07
"What" said that no 5'6 girl wears size 7...I'm 5'6 1/2 and I wear 6 1/2 to 7...foot size can vary so much I don't think that really matters..I'd say Kate is about 5'6.
Evanna said on 19/Mar/07
hey guys, for those of you who believe that Kate should be downgraded on the basis of her picture with Froddo, did you forget that Wood might be boosting his height by wearing boots or even lifts? He's certainly not barefoot in that pic.
samantha said on 3/Mar/07
Kate may seem little, but I saw her in Chicago and we were just inches from eachother and she was walking with her husband in wedge heels and she was a giant. 5"6 is a good height. She is MUCH taller in person.
anonymous said on 10/Jan/07
i think kate is about 5'6. she's petite in form which may make her seem smaller a la pam anderson. but she is def. a good height, on the taller side.
Alexa said on 16/Dec/06
The shoe sizing comments are ridiculous! I wear a size 3.5(US FEMALE) and am 5'3.5, my mother who is 5'1 wears a 6.5 and my best friend, Andrea who is a good 5'9 wears a 7.
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/06
I have to agree that the Elija Wood pic sets her at 5'4". She's just doing what all Hollywood does, adding two inches plus. It's not a crime but reality shows that she is a petite 5'4" possible 5'5".
hey said on 21/Sep/06
I just saw raising Helen, I'd say she is 5'4
sianna said on 18/Aug/06
no way...this is right....she is definately 5'6 coz when she was on rove ( australian interviewer) she was about 2 inches taller than him in heels ( rove is 5'7.5) and she was the same height as Owen Wilson, even slightly taller...
Jen said on 2/Aug/06
In celeb mags she looks around 5'5ish
Melissa said on 14/Jul/06
If you look at pictures of kate next to her mother, goldie hawn who is 5'6, they are the same height. And look at her next to Joan Cusack at the premiere of Raising Hellen. Joan Cusack is 5'8 and when her and kate are standing next to each other Kate is like 1 inch shorter at the most. So i believe that she is 5'7 or like she said 5'6.75
Anonymous said on 27/Jun/06
That picture with Elijah Wood says it all. She is 5'4" max.

Everyone looks tall in Wedge Sandals.
samantha said on 22/May/06
She walked right past me last June when I was eating at an outside italian restaurant in downtown Chicago, and she looked TALL. She was wearing very high heeled wedge sandals, but even at that she looked very tall. on the cover of Raising Helen, though, she looked so tiny.
Anthony said on 13/May/06
I just watched "Almost Famous" again, and Kate is definitely no more than 5'6. In the scene in which she's arguing with Patrick Fugit in the field, he is much taller. I've seen him listed at 6', and since he was 17 - 18 when the film was shot (the age teenagers normally stop growing), but I think he's shorter (5'8 Billy Crudup looked about as tall as him in the movie), but even so, he still had a good 2 - 3 inches on her, easily.
said on 26/Mar/06
How do you explain this then:With Elijah W. she is in her usual 3-4 inch heels and looking closer to 5'4" than even 5'5".
Anonymous said on 26/Feb/06
This is okay 'cause she looks 5'6" with her biuld. However, I've seen her a lot in Aspen, Co and Telluride (in uggs every time) and she is in reality 5'4" (a bit shorter than my 5'5" sister). However, in Hollywood, 5'4" EQUALS 5'6" SO whatever.
ds said on 11/Feb/06
I don't know. I think she looks 165cm...I dunno though...and about the size 7 shoe thing. I am 172 cm. And I can fit into a size 8. And isn't Gisele Bundchen a size 6. Shoe size has nothing to do with it...
mcfan said on 1/Feb/06
Be aware, I think the photo I posted with Naomi Watts and Kate Hudson is deceptive a bit. (I think Watts one leg is bent so she might be a half-inch shorter than she looks) I looked at other photos of the two and don't see as much of a difference. Rob's 5'6 is probably more accurate.

Next to 5'8" De Niro in tall heels. I would say she is 5'4"-5".
Anonymous said on 31/Oct/05
Yes, she would lie about her height. She is very short. Not 5'6". 5'6" is pretty tall in Hollywood. She should be downgraded to 5'5".
Anonymous said on 18/Oct/05
Well, I have met Goldie Hawn on several occasions. She is 5'4" (not too close to even 5'5"). How does Kate stack up to her.
And I did see Kate in Kemo Sabe in Aspen, CO two years ago. I am 5'8" and she was definitely under 5'6". She was really short in her uggs.
Z. said on 29/Sep/05
If you look at her pics next to Stella Mccartney, you will see that she is just about the same height if not shorter. Stella looks about 5'4 in her pics next to Samantha Morton and Kate Moss. Kate Hudson is definitely not any taller than 5'5
[Editor Rob: I haven't really bothered with this chick since that quote...she wouldn't lie about her height would she? But, a quick look at her and you know the thing Z said about 5ft 5.5, that actually looks closer to truth!!!]
What said on 28/Sep/05
Spent 30 minutes shopping next to Kate in Aspen. She was in Uggs and I was in flipflops. I am just under 5'8" and she was about 5'4". Very very short. My sister, 5'4 3/4" came in to gawk and Kate was shorter than her. She is majorly fudging her height at 5.6". The girl was tiny tiny. She was even looking at cowboy boots in a size 7. No 5'6" girl wears a size 7.

From Gawker.com - "Kate Hudson and hubby Chris Robinson. They’re both much taller than I had imagined and super thin. They walked past us and Kate shot us a friendly smile"
Z. said on 18/Jun/05
In another magazine last year (sorry, I cant remember which) she said that she is 5'5.5 but rounds it up to 5'6.

Thanks to Jeannine, the exact quote from Feb 2005 Allure is: "I'm 5 7 - I'm rounding up. I'm really about 5ft 6.75"
