Re: my Christmas Eve mistake.
It can be hard to write sometimes with cats walking over you! 🐈🐈🐈

I thought she was adorable as 'Nurse Betty' and also in 'Chicago'! It's obvious she was popular in the 'Bridget Jones' films or there would never have been a third one - which I have yet to see!
There was a fabulous supernatural thriller with Renee and Bradley Cooper called 'Case 39'! If you like that sort of thing, then this film really hits the spot!
I am surprised that Renee is written up as 5ft4! I have only ever read that she's 5ft5, so I will go with a compromise!

I was walking behind Renee a few years ago and was amazed to see that she had almost 2 inches on me. I'm 5'3". So this makes her 5'5" or 5'4.5". She has a petite build which makes her seem smaller or shorter but I got real close to her and saw that she was still taller than me in her flat shoes. She just got out of a yoga class. Definitely not 5'3". She is not short but the taller side of the short range. 5'5" for sure.

Rob can you add Cold Mountain, One True Thing, Cinderella Man, Nurse Betty, and Appaloosa? Mmm I was thinking 5 ft 3 and change in One True Thing.

Hi Rob, could you please take a look at Doyle Bramhall II her new boyfriend? He's Eric Claptons guitar player and was going out with Sheryl Crow. I've seen pictures of him with Keith Richards and they look virtually the same height and he's shorter than Eric by the looks of it. Could please take a look and guess a range for him? I'd be very grateful! Thanks

She doesn't look under 5'4 to me. And yes, she looks totally unrecognizable as of late. But still beautiful

Hello Rob, why did u list her as 5'4 if even she said herself that she's 5'3? anways, she looks completely unrecognizable as of late. btw, really love ur site!
[Editor Rob: I don't know how reliable the quote was, I suppose you are relying on whoever heard it remembering it was five three and not 5ft 4 or even 5.]
Arch Stanton said on 15/Feb/14
Rob can you add Nurse Betty and Cold Mountain, she won Best Supporting Actress for Cold. Reminded me a lot of Doris Day in that film actually.
jtm said on 14/Feb/14
look at her at the cinderalla man premiere. no way in a million years she is taller than 5'3.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Feb/14
Nah, when they walk side by side Nicole easily has 6.5 inches on her!!
Arch Stanton said on 14/Feb/14
Difficult to see 6.5 inches between her and Nicole Kidman in Cold Mountain. But Nicole's one of the few women who actually make Renee look dark skinned LOL.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Oct/13
Doesn't really look under 5 ft 4 in Chicago. In fact she can look 5'5" next to Catherine Zeta.
jtm said on 9/Jun/13
look at her next to olivia munn. they don't look the same height.

I think she is 5'4. In movies, she had to be measured twice in Chicago and Me Myself and Irene. She once had a short husband, you remember Kenny Chesney, right? We thought he was 5'8 but he's fairly 5'6. I believed she downgraded herself an inch cause of him. She didn't want people to think her husband was small on average and she was just plain average. I think she believed whatever her driver license said, and I don't think she even cares about height. In Chicago, she looks short cause she's skinny like Natalie Portman skinny, but in Bridget Jones, she looks a bit tall. I rememebered her saying she didn't have a driver license until she was 18 or 19 cause she didn't have a car; or maybe she doesn't know that she'd grown an inch in college or something. she couldn't care about height. height ain't got nothing to do with success.

She's definitely 5 foot 3. I remembered seeing her around with Gloria Cooper (bradley cooper's mom) and she looks short - heck she could have been shorter than 5 foot 3 but the way she dressed made her look short. She also wore sneaker and she's still looked short. Anyway, she's a great actress and I wished I had the galls to walk up to her and ask her for an autograph, not her driver license so I can see her definite height. For all I know, she's probably is shrinking.
Tempest said on 11/Mar/13
I know they don't mean much. I'm only trying to give as much proof as possible.
Tempest said on 7/Mar/13
In Me, Myself and Irene her fake driver's license says 5'3" as well.
Tempest said on 5/Mar/13
5'3". She said 5'3" and looks 5'3" but you say 5'4"?
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jan/13
She can looks a bit taller than this actually. Way too skinny though.
marla singer said on 8/Oct/12
She's 5'4" definitely
ana said on 3/Aug/12
One inch shorter
Sean73 said on 1/Dec/11
I`d say a strong 5-3.25 midday.And a killer little body too!
Silent d said on 20/Nov/11
5 foot 3.
kookierx said on 11/Mar/11
nope at 5-4
and I think barefoot like 5-2" or 5-2.5"
ross said on 15/Aug/07
what about in "chicago" where she's being measured before entering prison and the height chart says 5ft 6? body double?
mortimer said on 7/Jul/07
always looks like she's in pain or on the toilet, even when she smiles. I always trip on how some women become stars. I think a downgrade to 5-3.5 because even though she can look anywhere from 5-3 to 5-5, the high side is much rarer than the low side
rollabluntcallitaftermath said on 20/May/07
If she says she's 5'3, why give her the extra inch? If she was really 5'4 I don't think she'd rob herself of an inch.
Janey said on 10/Apr/07
I think 5ft 5 in- 5ft 5.5 in ..........
Brad said on 3/Oct/06
She's 5' 4". Weird eyes.
Expert said on 24/Aug/06
5'4 seems correct to me as she was about 3 inches shorter than catherin in chicago
Brad said on 9/Aug/06
About 5' 3". I got into Vegas late and slept in a Kinko's/Starbuck's outlet parking lot in The Hughes Center off Flamingo. At 1 A.M. I went in and Mr. & Mrs. Chesney were sitting among the taxi gang. Chesney is a blue collar good guy & the Mrs. was soooo nice. What went wrong in that union?
leonari said on 4/Aug/06
NEVER 5'5". NEVER! Moira you are dreaming
Kat said on 21/Mar/06
On '101 Incredible Celebrity Slimdowns' on E!, it's said Renee's height is 5'5.
said on 18/Mar/06
Rob, it's time to downgrade Renee to 5'3" b/c here she is with
Jennifer Connelly (5'6.5"). As you can see from the pic both are wearing sneakers and Renee is 3" or so shorter than Connelly.
[Editor Rob: yeah, posture might not be as good, I mean when connoly isn't as tall in the other pic the difference can swing]
Pathy from Brazil said on 28/Jan/06
I love Renee!!! She's the best...but I tought that she was taller!
175cm16andgrowing said on 1/Jan/06
...5'2'' yes, 5'3'' maybe... Actually she appears to be smaller in height than Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Anonymous said on 2/Nov/05
Oh, most people who were really close to Portman said she didn't touch the 5' mark. I guess I take their word for that. I forgot. My 5'1" I guess is too high?
absent said on 22/Aug/05
I read that Zellweger said she was 155 cm to the German couple, which would be like 5 ft 1. I think she just converted her height wrongly into cm.
[Editor Rob: yes, the translation both ways might have been dubious.]
HK said on 23/Jul/05
Alright! Here we go...Natalie Portman has always been listed as 5'3", including her drivers license. Renee says she's 5'3" but looks 5'4" and is listed as 5'4". Renee's height in shoes is 5'4" and since Natalie P. is an inch shorter than her, 5'3" is Natalie's height in shoes (which almost all celebrities give and are listed at) thus making Natalie 5'2" (which would also explain all the comments on how tiny she is!)
Renee Zellweger- 5'3"
Natalie Portman- 5'2"
Gigy said on 21/Jun/05
On the pic where Natalie P. and Renee. Z stand next to eachother, Renee is clearly about an inch taller than Natalie! Of course Natalie could be wearing flats, but I doubt it, cos more often than not, women don´t wear flats to the Golden Globe Awards!
J. said on 20/May/05
If she said herself that she is 5'3", why would you put her an inch taller anyway? I doubt she would round down her height by an inch.
Mr. X said on 19/May/05
Smoke is right, you are generous with the ladies. I've noticed you boosted Renee's height by an extra half an inch. Maybe in a few months she will go back to her old 5 ft 5. I also noticed you listed Natalie Portman as 5 ft 4.5 as well, despite the fact pretty much everywhere has her listed as 5'3", Keira Knightley says she's 5'3", and she even flashed her driver license that says she's 5'3".
[Editor Rob: now she's bald of course I just had to have another look at her especially shots with hayden. Certainly it is now easier to shave a little height off her now ;)]
