Comment on the Height of Kate Winslet

I saw the actual costumes they used for Titantic and she is taller than Leo. All of his shoes had a lift in them to make him appear taller than her. He is five seven and shes close to five eleven

So I guess that means Leo has 10 inch shoe inserts to make him taller than Winslet when she's in heels? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
Burke said on 17/May/14
@ds LOL at your claim. Leo is a legitimate 5'11. She is no taller than 5'6 - 5'6.5. Get real.
jtm said on 19/Mar/14
no more than 5'5. she had higher heels on and was still clearly shorter than shailene woodley.
Silent d said on 4/Feb/13
5 foot 6.

@Rob: she got her feet from her mother then... apparently she is like a UK 11.
Editor Rob said on 13/Nov/12
She says her Mother is 5ft 11 with size 13 feet!

she's got massive feet, her shoes are specially made for her, i read in an interview.She is taller then that!! Probably 5"7-5"8.

She looks around 5`6. Eternal Sunshine of the spotless is one of the best films ever. And Kate is incredible on it. I love it. Meet me in Montauk....
kiefer said on 24/Jun/07
She is a full 5ft 8 because I am 5ft 5 and she made me feel small when i met her last year and she was in barefeet near a beach .
greg said on 23/May/07
She gave 5ft 6.5 and that probarbly is her true height without hells.
She can appear to look taller though.
kathy said on 8/May/07
i really estimate she is about 5'7 1/2 - 5'8.
kathy said on 4/May/07
there is no way she can be 5'6 because jack black is that height and she looks about an inch taller.
Xan said on 2/May/07
Funny, man. Last night I saw "Little Children" and in it someone compares Winslet and her co-star Jennifer Connelly, who is listed in this page as also 5'6.5. The character says that Connelly is tall and has long legs, while Winslet's character is short and boyish. Look what a little weight'll do for a gal!

I saw Kate Winslet in a bar in Reading (her home town) once. I am 5'10" and I would guess she was 2.5" shorter than I am, putting her at 5'7.5". Of course it was very busy and I was slightly drunk. Therefore I am prepared to accept her height as 5'6.5", but certainly no shorter.
JAB142 said on 16/Feb/07
I don't know why there is any argument about this as she has quoted many times that she is 5'6 or 5'6.5 Why do people continually disbelieve what is said in interviews? She also looks exactly that height.Subject closed.
Jennie said on 15/Feb/07
I do believe her adult height is really 5'8 indeed. so i do believe you when you say kate is only a couple of centimeters shorter than cameron diaz. they are both up there alright. they are tall women.
cacas said on 15/Feb/07
After looking her photos with Cameron Diaz in Harper Bazaar cover and Holiday's premieres, i think she's 3-4 cm shorter than 5'9'' Cam. But the curious fact about her is why does she always look taller when she stands beside Leonardo DiCaprio, just see their reunion picture in 2007 Golden Globe awards.
Jennie said on 28/Jan/07
Thanks Bella! You couldnt have expressed the truth about homely, plain kate winslet any clearer. You rock, girl!
Glapster said on 20/Jan/07
The very narrow view of beauty expressed by Jen & Bella shows the cluelessness of women affected by the post-Mtv cultural universe. In all fairness the entertainment world like the rest of the world is run by men. There's more to life than Jessica Simpson. There's Zooey Deschanel, Scarlett Johansson, Audrey Tautou & Reese Witherspoon. So before you judge with your Mtv-BS-Pop culture/heterosexual(Iím assuming) female eyes please recognize the overwhelming amount of attention that Lady Kate & these smart attractive women receive from men. Enough with your teenage fantasies about being the local Tara Reid mall hottie. This is Hollywood baby, Kate's a gem, a 5'6.5" Oscar-worthy, leading lady of a gem.
Bella said on 18/Jan/07
I'm with Jen on this one. Winslet really is a homely, plain sort of girl and could easily have switched places with Dicaprio. Although he is so pretty that this is the case with many of his leading ladies. Did anyone see Catch Me If You Can with Jen Garner as the prostitute to his Frank Abagnale. Goodness Leo is such a fair faced boy and Jennifer has some big-arse shoulders on her. She is very manly. It was drag queens all around.
Jen said on 21/Dec/06
Glapster, i really dont care what you think as long as I know what's real about myself that is all that matters...besides if you werent jealous of me it wouldnt bother you that i am much more attractive than kate and you wouldn't have to be writing absurd ridiculous comments on this ridiculous you must be jealous of what i said about myself and due to the fact that i am much hotter than kate can ever be, ha! so there! I bet you are sooo unnattractive yourself that you have nothing better to do than dis me and other really gorgeous people out in this sad for you.
Glenn said on 19/Dec/06
I vaguely know who Sam Mendes is?
D. Ray Morton said on 18/Dec/06
Carla - need I say that I'm exceedingly jealous? (Very well, I'm exceedingly jealous!)

How was she when you met her? Nice?

Glenn - cool. Have you seen/met Sam Mendes? Any thoughts as to whether the advertised 5'10" is in fact correct?

"Back to the subject, Kate = 5'6.5" of talented beauty and fire. Next."

Straight up, Glapster.
Glapster said on 18/Dec/06
So Jen tell me how many films you are in which center around you as the beautifeul leading lady. Extra points if you've been in one with a higher gross intake than Titanic.

"its so obvious people consider me much prettier than her because its a fact"

Wow, what skewed logic you have. So you also believe concepts of beauty to be matters of fact. Hmmm. If this is true my assertion is that you aren't as beautiful as Lady Kate until your matter of "fact" is tested by popular opinion. So you try to get some headshots together for your agent and let us know when you hit the screen, OK? Back to the subject, Kate = 5'6.5" of talented beauty and fire. Next.
Jen said on 17/Dec/06
I am sorry but i am not jealous of kate winslet...i happen to be really prettier and its so obvious people consider me much prettier than her because its a fact. oh and just for your information just because i dont find an actress pretty doesnt mean i am jealous of very absured and foolish you are.
Glapster said on 16/Dec/06
After various comparisons to co-stars and the aforementioned fact that there are many shots of her not wearing heels I'm calling it at 5'6.5" max. Oh and Jen, you're most likely jealous of Kate's talent (see Eternal Sunshine) and beauty (see Titanic) and Frank is letting his sexual orientation interfere with good taste. Both Leonardo & Kate are gorgeous people, a fact proven if only by people such as ourselves typing away ever so diligently on a site dedicated to the minutia of celebrity height.
carla said on 16/Dec/06
Yeah! Finally something right! Kate is that tall exactly...I get to meet lots of celebs coz of my dad's company and I met her. She is pretty (ahem, D.Ray Morton) and she is 5"6.5. She doesnt wear really high heels so it's easy to estimate her height.
Glenn said on 12/Dec/06
Hard to say.5-8,5-9 in heels.too many people in my way,and she was 20 feet apart from me.
Alex said on 11/Dec/06
Glenn, what was your estimate on her height? more than 5'6.5?
Glenn said on 11/Dec/06
Saw her finally last week.seemed taller,probably due to footwear.
Alex said on 10/Dec/06
I'm not too sure on her height but proably is 5'6.5 compared to Leonardo who is 5'11-5'11.5. A size 11 is pretty big for a 5'6.5 girl too. I'm 6'0.5 with a size 14 and thats pretty big for my height too.
Poppy said on 4/Dec/06
of course she isn't 5'8" johnny d is hardly scraping 5'10" and she was still shorter than him at premieres etc.
James Dreyfuss said on 28/Oct/06
Just saw Kate Winslett on Michael Parkinson and she was quite a bit shorter than Parkinson, and she was wearing high hells which looked about 3 or 4 inches. Parkinson is 5ft 10, so 5ft 6 would seem about right. Although i had always heard she was about 5ft 7.

"Not joking in the least. Im serious! Are you demented or something. Cant you tell when someone is being serious?"


I thought Kate was ravishing in "Titanic." But that's just me.

"Kate is an unattractive moose(ha-ha!)and no doubt about it that Leonardo was far much prettier than her in Titanic."

You're joking................right?

Jen said on 9/Jul/06
I agree with Frank. Kate is an unattractive moose(ha-ha!)and no doubt about it that Leonardo was far much prettier than her in Titanic. I honestly never thought Kate Winslet was that attractive or pretty but as far as Leo is concerned he is the most gorgeous man in the cosmos. I still do think however that plain-jane Kate is still 5'8. Dunno why but she just appears only a couple of inches shorter than Leo in Titanic.
guru said on 5/Jun/06
i saw a pic of her from some movie jeanne tripplehorn towers over her in that pic dont know the name of movie
Fan said on 6/May/06
i am not sure but she seems an inch or two shorter than catherine zeta jones
Lauren said on 15/Apr/06
Well shes obviously 5ft 6/6.5 because she said she was and she wouldnt of said it if she wasnt that height. If she was 5ft8 then she would of said she was but she isnt so there!!. xx
Frank2 said on 3/Apr/06
And as far as I'm concerned, an unattractive 5'8" moose. Leonardo Di Caprio was far prettier than her in Titanic. All he needed was a little make up, a wig and a gown, some heels and they could have easily switched roles.
Jen said on 2/Apr/06
Say what you like but kate IS indeed 5'8! Cannot deny proof of that!

[Editor Rob: yeah, when kate and emma thompson done sense and sensibility - and kate was 1.5 inches shorter - they both made a pact, 5ft 9.5 Emma would say she's 5ft 8 and '5ft 8' kate would say she's 5ft 6/6.5...pretty good deal!]
Jen said on 8/Feb/06
Kate Winslet is much taller than 5'6. She really is 5'8! I was able to detect this by using tape measure and a picture of leonardo. I measured to see where 5'8 stands compared to 6'1 and guess what? She stands exactly where 5'8 is!
Emma said on 27/Nov/05
Leo Dicaprios 5ft 11.5 in Titanic and kates meant to be 5ft 6.5 in titanic. it doesnt make sense coz they look pretty much da same height. on most other websites she is 5ft8
Dee said on 23/Nov/05
she's 5'8'' indeed

[Editor Rob: yes, the 5ft 8 was guessed back in the early 90's when she was just about 2 inches shorter than Emma Thompson ;)]
mcfan said on 5/Sep/05
I was surprised to see Kate Winslet only at 5'6.5. This seems very accurate after having looked at some photos where's she is only wearing sneakers. She's nowhere near the 5'8 I originally thought.
