Rob can you add Wild to the list? She's got an Oscar nom I think. I get a big ballsy no nonsense vibe from her. She's little but makes up for it in other ways.

Rob, have you seen her recent pictures with Salma Hayek?
Salma looks clearly taller standing next to Reese, by about 1.5 inches.
[Editor Rob: I think salma is taller, how much more is hard to say without seeing photos and their heels.]

Yet thanks to 5'2" Trade Winds friend Kelly Brough,I got Walk The Line back on Oct.31. Reese is very small,at just 5'1",but she sang beautifully on her own in it,and she is sweet and pretty.Gently warming up to reese,but I'm going to need more time to develop liking her the way I love,i.e.,Jane Powell or Sally Field,but she's nice.

Rob if she's 5'1.5 how tall is her mother LOL??? She looks taller next to her!! Click Here
[Editor Rob: there's a few inches advantage with Reese there, her mother might be almost 5ft.]

I'm comfortable with looking at Reese Witherspoon as being small. 5'1" would be perfect as her height. Nice Oscar winning performance in Walk The Line. Needs to calm her thick Louisiana accent,though,but like all petite women,she's pretty. Sang nice,too,in Walk The Line. Had the DVD for a while,but I gave it up because I only moderately liked Johnny Cash.

Looks of her own words at 5' 1" in the vid with the cop, tiny.

She was aressted Friday and was listed as being 5'2" and 105 lbs on the arrest report. So 5'1.5" is probably right.

Not all Western women like men over 6ft, I personally think a man looks his best between 5ft 8 to 5ft 11.

a woman being short is fine. western women though, prefer a man over 6'

short is not as bad as you may think. some people do actually like it; I like that I am short and I would rather be my size (about 5'2) and no taller. I read Jada Pinkett Smith doesn't want to be any taller and I read Toni Braxton say she was 5'1 and then she said 5'1 and 3/4, and I think she looks more 5'1 and 3/4
Claire says on 3/Sep/12
Its enough for me that she once said, 5'1.
Noone in the world especially if we are talking about celebs, wont even shorten their heights.

We were really good friends with her and her family, but I was quite young, and never been good at math and sizing so...but my mother it quite all, and reese seemed very small in comparison to her! I would guess around the sizes you've said!
