Liv is over 5'9" def, but not solid 5'10", somwhere between. Maybe like 176.5cm or 175.5. But she hasn't well balanced proportions and bones that makes us think she's at 5'8" range. But strong 5'9" or 5'9" 1/2 is right for her.

No matter the angle, same height as Deyn. Liv is 5'9" at most. But I'm pretty sure 5'8".

She used to say she was 5'8" back in the day. So no, not 5'10".
Y2A said on 27/Jun/15
Deyn has a camera advantage there and still looks shorter than her.
Az said on 24/Jun/15
Posted this for Kate Hudson too, but Agyness Deyn is famously 5'8", Kate is 5'4"ish and Liv Tyler is 5'8"

MaryAnne said on 22/Apr/15
will you downgrade her?
[Editor Rob: the lowest I think I'd argue would be 5ft 9.5, but at times I think she is close enough to pass as 5ft 10.]
Jason said on 19/Apr/15
Yes rob a downgrade does makes sense.
ERIC said on 15/Apr/15
yes rob she is but only by half an inch. She is not edging gwyneth by full 1 inch. so shes not a full 5' 10. Little below than that. More like 176-177cm range
ERIC said on 13/Apr/15

Rob this picture proves she is NOT 5' 10"
she is almost the same height as 5' 9" Gwyneth Paltrow. So rob i agree with MasterX a downgrade is kinda possible. Do
you agree on this Rob?
[Editor Rob: well she does look taller than gwyneth there. She may still be 5ft 9.5 range.]
ERIC said on 13/Apr/15
Rob to be honest she looks 5' 9" at times. She looked exact the same height as charlize theron. She was not half inch taller than her not edging her by half an inch.Liv is more like a solid 5' 9"-5' 9.5". She needs a downgrade atleast
ERIC said on 12/Apr/15
Rob which mark has been possible for liv? 5' 9.5" o 5' 10"?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9.5 is just as possible I think.]
MasterX said on 13/Mar/15
Rob downgrade her height to 5' 9.5". Dont you think she kinda lost height?
[Editor Rob: that mark has always been possible for her.]
Bishop said on 16/Jan/15
The difference between her and Sarah Jessica Parker is definitely not 7.5 inches:

They're wearing similar sized heels. 177 cm max.
Elizabeth Renant said on 14/Nov/14
Mortensen is no more than 5'10" and they managed shots between him and Tyler in LOTR so that he looked as tall or taller, but it was clear she was at least as tall as he is. She has the look of a true 5'10" girl.
Magic said on 31/May/14
I don't believe she is 5'10 ,maybe second me she is 5'7-5'8.
If Elijah Wood is 5'5-5'6 and she doesn't wear high hells,if you search photos on web writing "liv tyler elijan wood" she would seem 5'7,5
Sam said on 30/May/14
Charlize is a little closer to the camera, so has an advantage on top of which her heels might be a little bigger than Liv's. No doubt though that there isn't much between them barefoot, both could anyway between 5'9" and 5'10".
Ax said on 28/May/14
Shorter than charlize. More like 5'8.5

Liv is 5'10. She's taller than 5'9 Gwyneth Paltrow.

Thought she was 5'7
rdgf said on 16/Jan/14
Are these measurements taking into account shoe height or is it an approximation of their natural height? Just curious.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Jan/14
@Sasha I agree, Viggo had 1.5-2 inches on her in the film, but did you see the tricks they did to alter heights in the film? I would never trust a comparison in LOR as a height guide!!

Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 30/Aug/13
As listed, 177-178cm.

Closer to 5'9
Peyman-6ft said on 18/Jan/13
viggo mortensen : 181.5 out of bed & 179.5 when going to sleep
Liv tyler : 178 out of bed & 176_176.5 at her lowest
thats all
Silent d said on 27/Sep/12
I watched jersey girl and she was towered by 6 foot 2 affleck. She looked 5 foot 9 but 5 foot 10 is about right. Super tall and sexy!
Sasha said on 5/Feb/12
I watched the first part of "The Lord of the Rings" today again. :) There is at least 1.5-2" between Liv and Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn). If Viggo is 5'11", Liv is 5'9-5'9.5".
Hugo said on 15/Oct/07
Liv Tyler, in my opinion, looks a solid 5'8". Definately did *not* tower over Alicia Silverstone in the *Crazy* music video.
Phil said on 14/Oct/07
Monica, no one is questioning Liv's physical beauty, or that there are many woman of above average height who are beautiful. What I am questioning is your ability to visually judge height. You originally stated that you were 5'9" when you met Liv, and "she very clearly had a me by at least a half head". That means you judged Liv to supposedly be about 4" taller than your 5'9" height, or that she was approaching 6'1" tall! Now you say you estimate she was a "little over 5-11". That's only about 2" taller than yourself, which isn't consistent with your recollection of her being " least a half head" taller than you. Again, whether you judge her height to be over 5'11'' or nearer 6'1," your estimate is significantly taller than that supported by either photos of Liv with other personalities or her own assertions. Her purported height of 5'10" is overly generous, let alone her being 6-ft tall (+/-). Eye witness visual judgments are notoriously inaccurate (as evidenced by your varying estimates for a single encounter). When the influence of Liv's footware is considered in side-by-side photos of her with other personalities for whom we have more solid height estimates, it's clear Liv is really 1"-2" less than 5"10". She's still a beautiful girl, just not as tall as her publicist would like us to believe.
Monica said on 13/Oct/07
All right Phil, let's get some facts straight ok? first of all the girl I saw WAS Liv, sure she was in out of her glamorous appeal but even without a drop of makeup on her face she can't pass unnoticed with that beautiful face and hair of hers and by the way she was in sneakers, so therefore a little over 5-11 must be her actual height because sneakers add half an inch and no more. The problem with you is that maybe you're one of those big, tall macho guys who are well over the 6'3 mark and can't stand someone telling them that there are people out there close to their height or even taller than them. If you ever go to a live NBA game you will find out that there are several men who cartainly dwarf and tower greatly over you, as a matter of fact I urge you to go to a live wrestling show, last year I accompanied my boys to a Raw or whatever it's called and I saw a huge, sexy man that my boys told me was an Indian wrestler and believe me he looked he was easily over the 7-foot mark, probably if you go to a WWF or NBA show you would start with excuses like: "those guys wear lifts they can't be any taller or stronger than me, I look at Shaquille O Neal and The Undertaker straight in the eyes without even raising my glance" and since you probably think all women are tiny, delicate dolls who don't even reach your shoulder I suggest you Goggle the names Maria Sharapova or Gabrielle Reece, I guarantee you'll be in for a big surprise
Phil said on 11/Oct/07
Please. According to Monica, Liv is now well over 6-ft -- supposedly being at least a "half a head" (some 4") taller than 5'9"!! Come on, let's get real. There's never been any objective photographic evidence anywhere -- not to mention Liv's own publicity -- suggesting she's close to 6-ft, let alone being taller than that. I don't know who Monica saw, or what footware Liv was wearing if in fact it was Liv, but there's no way Liv Tyler is close to 6-ft let alone pushing 6'1". It's amazing how incapable many people are of judging height -- particularly when meeting a celebrity.
Monica said on 10/Oct/07
I had the pleasure of meeting this amazingly beautiful young lady about 6 years ago in Cedar Rapids mall and my sons took some pics of me with her and she very clearly had a me by at least a half head and I'm 5'9 so my boys were amazed that someone towering over me by that much and she made my 5'7 son look small
Amelia said on 21/Sep/07
When she's next to her dad, Steven Tyler (sexy rock god) who's supposedly 5ft 9 though he looks taller, he is about an inch taller. Either, Liv is not 5 10, Steven's not 5ft 9 or steven's wearing heeled boots =)
Nasty said on 10/Sep/07

On the same New Line Cinema site, they are selling a life-size Austin Powers standee. It's 6' foot tall. No way Mike Meyers is that tall.

Yasmin Musavich said on 10/Sep/07
I'm 5'8" and the three times I've met her she only looked a little bigger than me (abut 2cmish), so 5'9"-5'9.5" (maybe she rounds up or is told to say she's taller), we were both wearing flats twice and in three inch heels otherwise
Bad Radio said on 23/Aug/07
i'd say 5'9 - 5'9.5
Phil said on 4/Aug/07
Thanks, Ginny. No one is trying to bash Liv. She's a very attractive young lady, and as far as I'm aware, has an equally lovely personality...and she seems to be a pretty well-grounded person, notwithstanding the unusual circumstances she faced during her childhood. But let's get real. She's not close to 5'10". Many, many photo comparisons can be made with Liv standing side-by-side with other personalities who are reported to be taller or shorter than 5'10" in height. Of those photos where there's equivalent posture, and you can clearly assess the height impact of their footware, it's obvious that either the reported heights for all but Liv are incorrect by several inches (up or down), or Liv is really around 5'8", and NOT 5'10". 5'8" (+/-) ain't bad. It's still "tallish" for a girl...just not as distinctive as her publicist and agent might wish. Way back when...her height was consistently reported as about 5'8"...but as her celebrity grew, so did her height. Let's call 'em as we see 'em. Liv should be reported as 5'8" (if you want, you could add a "+" to make the believers feel better).
Ginny said on 3/Aug/07
I agree with you Phil. That was exactly what I thought when I saw the pictures from Comic Con. About Joaquin Phoenix, below it is a picture with them, both in normal shoes, and she appears smaller than him.

Rachel said on 2/Aug/07
Liv has got to be 5'10- if Joaquin Phoenix is 5'8 then, from photos of them when they were going out, she has at least 2 inches on him, maybe even more in heels. So, she's got to be 5'10.
Phil said on 1/Aug/07
Sorry guys...Liv is clearly 5"8", or less. Recent photo of her alongside co-star Scott Speedman at Comic.con. Liv is wearing what appear to be 3" heels, while Scott is wearing street shoes. Ene so, he's about an inch taller than she is. You have Scott listed as 5'11". 5'11" minus 3" for the heels = 5'8" for Liv -- which consistent with previous side-by-side photos liv and Karolina Kurkova. At some point consistent visual evidence should tell the tail. Liv is a beautiful girl, but she's really around 5'8" (or a little less), and not her reported height of 5'10".
Elis said on 23/Jul/07
Karolina Kurkova is clearly taller than 180 cm, I think she is 183 cm, because she is 3-4 cm taller than Gisele, who is like 179 cm!
ZZar said on 21/May/07
actually she's five 8...i dont think New Line Cinema's gonna lie...(Click Here)

[Editor Rob: the person who wrote the description also said Orlando cutout was 5ft 10 and Viggo cutout was 5ft 9.]
Phil said on 10/May/07
Based on a recent "side-by-side" comparison of Liv and Karolina Kurkova (Click Here), either Liv is actually about 5'8", and not 5'10", or Karolina Kurkova is closer to 6'1", and not her advertised height of 5'11". Both ladies are wearing what seem to be 3" heels, and are standing side-by-side on a level surface. Liv is standing fully erect but Karolina is less so -- which understates the disparity in their respective heights. Liv is clearly more than two inches shorter than Kurkova. Liv is a beautiful girl...but obviously about 5'8" (+/-), and not 5'10".
Brad said on 2/May/07
She's 5' 10". I met her mother in '76 and she, if I can remember, was model tall.
Drew said on 27/Apr/07
How does a girl with an average height father (175cm) get so tall? Her mother must be really tall.
Mr C said on 8/Apr/07
I think she looks shorter than 5'10
Franco said on 4/Apr/07
@site owner : dont you find it very strange 3 or 4 people in a row posted stating they are 5'10 and that liv tyler is eye to eye with them?

"Sara says on 23/Feb/07
I ran into her at an airport about 3-4 months ago. She was my height...5'10". We both had on the same Converse sneakers. We were eye to eye. There's no way she any smaller than 5'9 1/2" way.
Jenie says on 20/Feb/07
Liv is definitely 5'10", Saw her once before and I got her autograph. We also chatted for a bit. I am 5'10" and she looked no shorter than me. Eye to eye.
DC says on 13/Feb/07
She was pushing a stroller when we passed each other. She seemed a shade taller than me and I'm 5-10."

LIV is 5'10 that's 100% sure to me.

I met Liv once at the beach and we were both barefoot (I'm 5'10.5") and she was two inches shorter(she asked to borrow some sunscreen!),also my mother, sister and aunt were with me and they are all 5'10.5" as well!
Joe said on 7/Dec/06
looked about 5-6 inches bigger than me. she's about 5'11 or 6'.
Anonymous said on 13/Sep/06
i met liv tyler and im 6ft even shes closer to 5"9 but perfect is right
anonymous2 said on 11/Sep/06
It's incredibly easy for someone nearly 5'9" to pass for 5'10", so I agree she could be 5'8.5".
Anonymous said on 10/Sep/06
The pics with 5'6.5" Mia Tyler do put Live closer to 5'9" than 5'10". I do think she's 5'8.5", which is what they stated back in the day when I was her biggest teeny bopper fan! 5'8.5" and perfect!

I'm not sure how tall she is, but I do know that she towered over Alicia Silverston in aerosmith's "crazy" video.
MTed said on 15/Feb/06
Saw Liv at Universal City walk. I'd say she is easily 5'10"
anon said on 16/Jan/06
Liv is in the 5'8 range. She looks slightly taller than GP when they are wearing the same shoes and looks slighly taller when GP is in her mega heels. After reading all the quotes of celebrities quoting their own height (like Liv saying she is 5'10) I'm starting to think that celebrities are told (by publicists, ect?) how tall they are and the celeb doesn't bother to check the accuracy. How can a 5'8-9 person go around saying "I'm 5'10? This is what happens when agencies start measuring people's bodies instead of medical practioners or physical trainers or therapists. Inflation, inflation, inflation.
Z. said on 18/Nov/05
Editor, what do you say about the pics with Cate Blanchett that I posted a while back? I really think that you should downgrade her to 5'9...

[Editor Rob: I dunno Z, there appears from all the pics an inch, but can't see if heel is equal/more/

the thing with ladies is if they just stood straight and we can see heels ;)
NYWoman said on 16/Nov/05
You can see Liv trying to increase her height in this photo with Mary Alice Stephenson. Mary is 6 foot even and Liv is on her tippy toes.
Robinz. said on 14/Nov/05
The pics with Blanchett are perfect. And she is 5'6.5" in real life (5'7").
Z. said on 5/Nov/05
On wireimage there are some pics of her with Sandra Bullock who I believe is about 5'7 and she looks about 1.5/2 ins taller. There are also some pics of her with Kate Hudson and 5'9 Helena Christensen ( she might be shorter than this as models usually lie about their height!) on the second page. She looks EXACTLY the same height as Helena.
Here is the link to the 2. page:

I used to LOVE Liv Tyler, about 8 years ago now. I still love her. However, in all those old features that I would read, including the Silly Liv Trivia books, she was known as 5'8" 1/2. I don't know when she grew an inch but I doubt that she did. She is 5'8"1/2. I met her friend Gwyneth Paltrow. She is 5'7" max (I am 5'8" and I was an inch taller in flipflops).
minime said on 13/Oct/05
Often they start counting at 150cm as 5' and then 2.5cm for every inch when converting to the metric system. 1" is actually 2.54cm, but often they use 2.5cm because it's easier counting that way.
Anonymous said on 15/Sep/05
It was a euro magazine, but 5"10 could be easilly converted, which is 178.
Kisha said on 13/Sep/05
Wow, it's amazing, this girl never stops growing!lol! In an magazine that I read with an interview of Liv Tyler she said that she was 175 cm. That's 5"9 not 5"10 as she claims now. She is a tall woman, but I think she's around 5"8 to 5"9.

[Editor Rob: she's consistantly said - well most of the time - 'I'm 5ft 10'. Maybe the editor tried to convert '5ft 10' to the centimetre, if it was euro magazine?]
