I guess 5'1.5". She is tiny but not ugly. 156cm or under counted short for a woman.
156cm woman= 168cm man. 168cm counted "dwarf" for a man, but 156cm counted "below average" for a woman? is that so? lol. 156cm is below than 7cm usa average and she is definitely tiny. furthermore she is danish origin and denmark average 167cm.
grizz said on 27/Apr/16
@Alex, no, that would mean she's below average. By your chart, a girl who's 162 cm (in a country where 163 cm is average), you'd scream immediately SHORT?
Realistically 5'2 or below is the start of short for American standards.

I disagree that she isn't short. After reevaluating my own height....still think Thomas Jane is taller than listed....I'm a weak 5'6'' and can measure just over 5'5'' at the end of the day. Recently saw her at a WB event...Girl is TINY. I mean that in several ways. First, I had always assumed she was super curvy. She isn't. She's a lot skinnier than I ever would have thought. Secondly, she's extremely petite. There is no way that she is 5'3''. She's utterly gorgeous, whatever her height, but needs a downgrade. If anyone put my in Hollywood, I feel like I would be a beast in size (and I'm only 120 lbs)...Mind blown.
Alex said on 13/Mar/16
Yes, she is short. She's a couple of cm under the average height for a woman
Melisentia said on 2/Mar/16
Unbelievable. She is not midget sized...LOL. She isn't tall, but she isn't short either.

5'2.75 for her. She is weak 5'3. She is considerably shorter than the Hulk (Banner).
Crypto139 said on 14/May/15
And she is supposed to be playing a character that is based on a 5 feet 6 japanese woman in the movie Ghost in the Shell! Though height of anime characters maybe stated as something but they really look a lot different than the writer states like the so called 187 or 6 feet 1.75 inch character in that manga is really giangantic, compared to all the other characters. I just hope that Ghost in the Shell is a good movie.

@Brenda nobody cares how tall you are sis. Stay in school.
kristos said on 14/Apr/15
Brenda I bet you're a gargantuan. You're probably 5'double digits with football shoulders. I'm 6' and I really like Scarlett's "midget" size.
CASPER said on 7/Apr/15
I guess heels really make up for them.She looked little shorter than Robert Downey Jr in avengers.
Erica said on 13/Mar/15
Celebrity makeup artist Bobbi Brown describes Scarlett as 5'2" in her book "Bobbi Brown Beauty Rules." I'm sure they've met.
grizz said on 5/Mar/15
@Brenda, easy now with name-calling. Would you feel comfortable if someone called you an ogre?
She's 1-2 inches shorter than the American average for women.
Brenda said on 3/Mar/15
She's a midget.But at least she has a very sexy body.I am way taller than her.My height is 182cm.I am a girl and 15 years old.I guest she is short,midget and sexy.Even when she is short she still has a good talent.Sorry scarlet for my tallness.

5'1" the most

Wierd that her brother is a foot taller than her, but he does actually look like he could be a legit 6'3 man when you see the two of them together. And they're twins too! He must have stolen all her tall genes when they were in the womb together. Anyone know how tall their parents are?
SAMMY DERRICK said on 5/Oct/14
In the movie LUCY,she is described as 25 blonde and medium height.5'3 in Far East Asia is average for a woman.
Sam said on 17/Sep/14
I'd say the rate that people are getting taller if any is slowing down compared to how it was since the 1950s. We have much more than they did and more or less what we need so can only go so far..
Jones said on 6/Sep/14
@ Sean 6' isn't average but it is still a very normal height.
Amaze said on 16/Jun/14
lol at 6' being average, 5'9 is lower average, 5'10 being higher average. 6' for a man is tall, sean your friend and my brother are same height yeah it's a good height
5'3 is average for a woman too but like 5'9 for a man, lower average. scarletts at a good height for a woman, not quite petite. her bro is like a foot taller than her lol. Adriano you been living in giant land? 6' is 3 inches over average.
Sean said on 28/May/14
6' definitely isn't average. I measured one of my friends at 6'0.5 and he's consistently one of the tallest people in the room wherever he goes, if not the tallest period.
Realist said on 10/May/14
@Adiaino You are living in a dream world if you think average in America is 6'0. Average is between 5'9-5'11. Scarlet is about 5'3 maybe a bit under 159. She looks about 2 inches shorter than legit 5'8 Joaquin Phoenix in Her premiers with 3-4 inches heels. He was in flats. Also her brother ain't 6'3 he is about 6'1.5 (186 cm).
Adiaino said on 6/Apr/14
Elijah you're wrong,Cillian was right.6' is the average height for an american male.It's not 5'9 or 5'10.
Sean said on 11/Mar/14
This is late to the conversation, but I agree with Lorne down there. Teenage guys especially can look taller than they are because they're usually pretty thin. I'm 17, and a lot of my friends are 5'10 range and claim six foot (one is 5'10 1/2 and claims 6'1, haha), and people believe them because they give off a tall impression. Btw, I know they're 5'10 range because I've measured them.
Sarah said on 16/Feb/14
5'3" is pretty close. She looks about this height on the Avengers.
kani said on 7/Feb/14
I think she is so beautiful, no matter how tall she is. I actually thought she was taller. She must have long legs! I'm only 5ft.2in. and I look shorter-short legs!
JeanE said on 13/Jan/14
Don't forget the other sex-bomb, Jean Harlow at 5'1". Watching her in the old movies, she commanded respect and owned the screen. Whatever your height, play up your strengths and carry yourself like "you have oil wells pumping in your backyard.". Scarlett is awesome.
sweetie said on 13/Jan/14
she is no taller than 5'
gavy said on 6/Jan/14
Scarlett is short 5'1 or 5'2 max. But she is d sexiest gal in Hollywood. Being shorter, she has a fantastic body.
liftwearer said on 20/Oct/13
I think this listing is pretty accurate. She usually looks a bit on the petite side in photos with other celebs. I also find her to be just very average in every way too. Height, weight, looks...well it's just my personal opinion. Kudos to her for making a name for herself in Hollywood.
Len said on 17/Sep/13
5'2" or 5'3".
Like her in most movies, but thought she was miscast as The Black Widow in the Marvel films.
The Black Widow is a tall, athletic, strong-looking Russian redhead. Scarlett's great, but she's none of those things.
She can act, though. Her interrogation scene with Loki in The Avengers was pretty good.
Lucy said on 31/Aug/13
I saw Scarlett J. at a Starbucks in Canmore, Alberta with Ryan Reynolds before they were married. I am 5'3 and Scarlett was 2-3 inches shorter than me and she was wearing flat shoes. I think she may be exaggerating her height by a couple of inches. Based on what I saw she is probably 5'1 or 5'2. Because she is most often seen in high heels she may seem taller.
SK said on 26/Aug/13
Lorne, I agree with what you wrote. I think so many people overestimate their height that we have a distorted idea of what's tall now. It's funny when people say 6' or 5'11" for a man isn't tall. Of course, it depends on the person's body type and proportions, but 5'11"-6' is still tall or above average height for a man in the U.S. and in most parts of the world. The reason why it doesn't seem that tall anymore is that (1) so many guys who are really 5'8"-5'10" inflate their height and claim to be 5'11"-6'; (2) people have gotten heavier over the years, which makes them look shorter; and (3) we're used to seeing more extremes now and tall people have just gotten taller. Plus, there's a difference between the true average height in a society vs. what you see out there in the streets. Just because you're surrounded by tall people doesn't mean those people are the average height. Where I work, I see plenty of very tall women who are at least 5'10" even in flat shoes, but I know those women are not the norm.
said on 1/Jul/13
I saw her on-stage in A View From a Bridge. Although she can look really quite short, on stage she looked 5'4" range to me next to Liev Schreiber and the rest of the cast. However, she was wearing quite large-heeled shoes based on some of these photos, where Schreiber looks a solid head taller.
Lorne said on 30/Jun/13
Well Europe is a different story, Truth177. Some parts average really is 5'11, should've thought of that! But they specifically said us. Average for women in us is 5'4-5'5, as you said. Average for men is NOT over 5'9.5 though, unless you talk about younger white men, where average really is around 179cm. In any case, 6ft in US is still tall, and anywhere 6ft is strong average, though in very few places is average 5'11+. For example, UK, all countries, average is less than 5'10. Sorry, but peoPle living us saying 5'10 is short are crazy. And I very rarely see women taller than me, which says something...
truth177cm said on 28/Jun/13
people who claim 6ft-6ft1 is average are just as deluded as people who claim 5ft8-9 is average.
truth177cm said on 28/Jun/13
nah Lorne, realistically speaking (where I am from though, Europe) about 30% of guys are 6ft and over, it is not around LOL. and average height for a male is 5ft10-11, female 5ft4-5ft5.
Lorne said on 28/Jun/13
Lol jf and cillian. Like most people, you overestimate height. Remember, most people claim to be an inch or 2 taller than they are, for various reasons. Some ppl really think they are that tall, others measure themselves in shoes, and some just lie. In reality, most people that claim to be 5'10 are really 5'8-5'9, and I have even seen a few 5'7-5'7.5 guys claim 5'10. And a lot of guys who are legitametly 6ft, claim to be 6'1-6'2. Point is, 6ft is tall, 88th percentile, I believe, so taller than 88% of the population. Just telling you, your ideas about height are warped. If you really think that over 70% of kids in your school are 6ft+, when statistictly well under 20% are, you are either delusional, or have no idea what a true 6 footer looks like.( Let alone a legit 6ft2, which is VERY tall, despite 6ft flat guys regularly claiming it)
Kate said on 30/May/13
She is beautiful, period. Who cares how tall she is...5'3 is perfect.
Mooplefoo said on 8/May/13
I am an high school Elijah and i do agree with Cillian. A vast majority of kids in my school are 6ft and above id say 70% of males are in my school. I'm 5'6 in public I dont feel too short but at school I'm one of the shorter kids. My dads 5'10 and in public he always seems perfectly average though.
JF said on 31/Mar/13
i am a guy and i am 5 feet why is it the guy has to be taller then the girl who cares as long as you love each other it should not matter who is tall or short. i get girl looking at me weird just being i am shorter then them who cares ppl come in all sizes it what is the inside that matter not the outside

I thought she was taller. Very attractive though
Elijah said on 11/Mar/13
No it isn't Cillian. Average height is still a solid/strong 5'9" even for young people.
Cillian said on 17/Feb/13
Is 5'10" really average height for American men? Isn't that kinda short? Most kids these days are already at 6ft barely out of high school.
Cliff said on 14/Feb/13
I agree with Llama.
It is indeed rare to see a girl taller than 5'7" - even in los Angeels where I live. For example, the tallest girl in the office in which I work (we have about 60 employees) is around 5'7." Teh shortest around 5'0." The average is definitely between 5'4" - 5'5." It's actually rarer than most think to see a girl taller than 5'8."
Llama said on 27/Jan/13
@Joey "and btw 5'7 isnt tall for a woman...its like one would call a 5'11 man tall since men are about 4-5 inches taller than women in average..a 5'7 woman is slightly above average just like a 5'11 man is... weak 5'9 and above for women and weak 6'1 & above for men can be considered as tall"
The difference between 5'4" and 5'7" in practise is a lot. I'm a 5'8" girl and it is definitely tall out in the wild. If I wear heels, I'm bigger than most guys.
Also, for guys, anything even scraping 6' is tall. 6'2"+ is very tall. 6'4"+ is huge. Two inches may not seem like a lot, but when it comes to a person's height relative to average, it really makes a big difference. Try wearing four inch platforms, you'll see what I mean.

@Helen381 thats really good to hear that! Since Im 5'3"/5'4" :)
Balrog said on 11/Jan/13
For an average guy at 5'9''-5'10'' sure 5'3'' is perfect. But I prefer women 5'6'' or taller although that's not the most important thing.
Helen381 said on 11/Jan/13
I'm 5'3" & I was told by a male friend that its the perfect height for women, not too tall & not too short.

Alexandra said on 29/Dec/12
I'm 5'3'' too and never lied about my height, even though in my country most women are taller than me. Men seem to look at overall features, I've always had very tall boyfriends that didn't care about me being short, but that's not the point. Yes, 1.60 is short, but I love being able to dress in anything and not look manly, or put on 6 inch heels shoes and feel amazing, hehe. Look at Scarlett, she's simply gorgeous!
Joey said on 19/Dec/12
5'3 sounds about right
and btw 5'7 isnt tall for a woman...its like one would call a 5'11 man tall since men are about 4-5 inches taller than women in average..a 5'7 woman is slightly above average just like a 5'11 man is... weak 5'9 and above for women and weak 6'1 & above for men can be considered as tall

Lee, Marilyn Monroe was never short! she was about 5ft 5 which is a good average now. The average height for a female back in 1950 was 5ft 2 so Marilyn was on the short side of tall!
Lee said on 19/Aug/12
5-3 seems right. And yes, she does look a bit short in films. So what?
With women, that isn't really a negative. Guys get dinged for being short, but with women, hot is hot... doesn't matter if you're 5-3 or 5-10.
Yeah, yeah, I know... supermodels are tall. They have to be, because the clothes have to hang off them a certain way. But then look at Playboy playmates (or porn stars, if you must). They're all over the map, height-wise.
Biggest sex bomb of all-time? Marilyn Monroe. And she was short.
Emma said on 25/Jul/12
I never usually comment but I don't like the earlier comments talking about how being shorter is a negative thing. I'm 5'0 and I don't mind being that height. In fact, I think sometimes its an advantage.
Shannon said on 26/Jan/12
Cindy: Below average IS short. Keep in mind that average height for women (5'4'') is not very big to begin with. No, 5'5'' is not tall, but it`s also only slightly above average. Below average is pretty small, 5'3'' and under. I`m 5'2'' and I feel like I'm pretty short, despite being only 2 inches below average. 2 inches is a big difference when you're in the low fives. You just have to accept it. I find it a bit off-putting that you feel the need to so vehemently protest the use of the word short. I don`t mind it; I`m not insecure about being small. It`s not a bad thing.
Cindy said on 12/Jan/12
People, whatever her height, she is NOT short. How is 1 inch below average considered short? Is 5'5 considered tall at one inch above average? No it's not, and neither is my 2inches above average height of 5'6. So quit classifying 5'3 women as short and 5'2 women as 'tiny' when they are simply below average, like 5'6 and 5'6 women. Anyway, better to be close to the average than a 6ft giant female, towering over most of the men barefoot (like one of my cousins).
PIts said on 27/Dec/11
5'3" seems to be stretching it a bit, 5'2 sounds just right.
I feel most guys prefer women with average to full curves and like 'em of short stature (5'4 and below) and most shorter girls seem to have inflated egos cause of this. Im only 5'8, lean with avg curves and would only trade in for more inches than less, but Everytime I wear heels, my guy friends tell me its intimidating to stand next to me (unless they are taller than 6.1')and honestly its quite annoying. And I agree, atleast for women, if you've got the looks, height isn't quite a factor, unless even your looks intimidates some guys.

Yes, Leslie actually you are tall for a woman, statistically speaking. The average height for a woman in the U.S. currently is about 5'4" tall. The average height for a man is about 5'9" tall.

It's ridiculous to say short women have more curves... Mariah Carey's like 5,9.. Btw, I'm 5,7 is that tall?

Laura i like tall girls. I'm 178cm but i don't mind if the girl is taller. You'll find someone one day. I think you have a better shot than short girls. She was shorter than cruz. She's hot no matter what. 160cm is perfect.
Arch Rival said on 15/Oct/11
5'3 works for Scarlett .....she's got curves and sex appeal; and if she wants to be taller I'll get her a pair of Stilletos to rock! And; what is that dude Tony talking about? 5'7 would be more seductive??? "He sounds crazy"!

height is so unimportant! i am a tall girl (btw with lots of curves!) and i have the same problems/succes getting a man as short girls! everybody is beautiful in their own way!

I agree. 5ft7 limit is someting society codes to mind for women. Her being 5ft3 is nothing is what is supposed to be. And she is just fine the way she is.
Tony said on 10/Aug/11
She is sweet but she would be even more prettier if she was taller, around 5'7'', she would be more seductive... But I bett shorter men would kill for her.
thesuspendeR said on 21/Jul/11
we all just met Scarlett off Rodeo dr (beverly hills) and most of the other woman shoppers who were barley tall themselves just towered over her.. PLUS that was morning when human height is greatest. A smooth 5'2.5" for Scarlet, that's it (well done, kookierx)
Button said on 13/Jul/11
She looks a bit taller than Natalie Portman who is listed at 5'3", but I can see over on Natalie's page that the vast majority of people think she's shorter than 5'3". I don't see why she can't be 5'3" though because she looks that to me, and she definitely doesn't look 5'0" like a lot of people there say. I would say the lowest Natalie can be is 5'2.5" (159cm). Anyway, if you see pictures of Scarlett with Natalie, you will see they're very nearly the same height. Scarlett looks a fraction taller though. If Natalie is 5'2.5", I can see how Scarlett may be just a flat 5'3", but if Natalie is 5'3" herself then Scarlett seems more like 5'3.5" (161cm). I personally think Scarlett is 5'3.5" rather than 5'3".

I am a tall guy, and i love small women like scarlett 5,2. is the lowest i would go even no i am 7,0 small women are great espicially if they are super curvy like scarlett or kim kardashian. They are easy to dominate in bed and look cute.
Anna said on 22/May/11
Height isnt that big a deal for women because if they are pretty then it wont matter as long as they arent too short or too tall. For guys though it might be, as most girls want taller guys. Anyway, 5'3" sounds about right for Scarlett, and thats a good height, and she's beautiful.

No men prefer shorter women. It makes them feel taller. Tall women emasculate men. Fact!
:) said on 18/Apr/11
I've noticed people on this site are really serious about height! Okay firstly, I'm 5'7 and consider a woman to be taller than average if she is 5'6-5'9 and just generally really tall if she is 5'10 or over and a woman is below average if she is below 5'3 and generally tiny if she's 5ft or below but it doesn't matter we're all equal and it may be just me personally, but I think really tall men dating short woman is just wrong, like a 6'4 man with a 5'2 woman just looks like he wants a child. Not caling a 5'2 woman a child, but by a 6'4 man it will look like that. My dad's 6'4 and I'm tall yet I look small next to him.

Estol lksjn That's a bunch of crap all the words you wrote are a f****** bunch of LIES!!!
1. A girl is not tall when she's first 5'9 a taller women would be around 5'6-5'7! Shorter women are not prima donnas, just because YOU maybe have met ONE short prima donna does NOT mean all short women are prima donnas.. I'm a dude, and I personally don't have ANY trouple with height but I'd rather have a shorter woman! tall women give you that look that says ''Hey, I'm better than you''
An average woman is about 5'3-5'6!

Wow, I have not once noticed that men favor little women. I'm five foot three and 115 pounds, and personally I think I look nice, but guys always seem to go for those girls with legs longer than my whole body. It's really encouraging to hear people here saying that men like little women - even that guy who called short girls prima donnas! If he considers himself a man of unusual tastes, maybe I've got a chance! Also, of course, if a bombshell like Scarlett's around my height, I'm good.

i noticed how short she was in a screencap posted of her in panties. probably from lost in translation (which i have seen but don't remember much of). anyways, it was kind of a turn off. her legs are a casualty of her height.
Hattie said on 16/Dec/10
its much nicer to be shorter if your a woman. i'm 5.9.5, which isnt that bad, but i still have ****ty posture, which means i dont breathe properly, i have less energy, and all sorts of other problems. the only nice thing is being able to walk far and fast, but my friend who is shorter can walk just as far and fast as me. my mums 6ft and she's really shy so she's always had a really horrible time. i think everyone wants to be what they're not but i really would like to be shorter. most men defintely prefer short women.
Cullen said on 15/Dec/10
Personally this is another area where I go with the seven rule. It's a bit of an adaptation of the age rule, but as far as relationships go I subscribe to anyone within seven inches. I'm 6'5" and I'll admit that I dated a few women in my younger days that were 5'2" or 5'3" but in the end it just felt awkward. Not meaning to belittle them but they just weren't on my level. I'm sure there are a dozen 5'2" women out there who will want to respond with a comment about their liking taller men or whatever. But from one guy to another, I've been married for almost a year now to a wonderful woman who's 5'10" and we couldn't be happier.
Shannon said on 16/Nov/10
Okay, thats just mean and not true what Esol Esek said. I'm 5'2 and not at all a "prima donna" and actually quite insecure about my height. All my friends who are short wish to be taller too. and judging women like that is just wrong, like we dont have enough to feel insecure about, and this is'nt even something we can change.And saying that tall women have good racks is just stupid, height has nothing to do with that. Women come in every shape and size and judging people based on there height is rude(for lack of a better word.)Its fine to have ur own personal preference but to generalize like that is hurtful...ever heard of the word..."stereotype?"
Chameleon said on 15/Nov/10
@Esol Esek: I agree with everything u just said, ice one. but makes me wonder, what is your height? (I like some height on woman aswell and im bareley 6ft)
Esol Esek said on 14/Nov/10
Taller women are generally more attractive and are much less prima donnas than short women, precisely because lots of men, including tall men, want to date little dolls. I'm the complete opposite and follow the R Crumb school of amazon women, although he likes em thicker than I do. 6'0 is too tall for women generally, and they end up uneven. 5'9" is the height of my gf and the perfect height as far as I'm concerned. Their legs aren't stumpy, they wear heels great, and they can have medium to good racks, yet they aren't linebackers. You dudes keep chasing the midget women forever, dealing with their outsized egos. I like em tall and a bit less secure and stuck-up. Short women should stick to short men, but they don't have to. And never hesitate to ask out a woman that's 5'10 and up. They may look intimidating, but they get hit on much, much less often than women under say 5'9".

Found an interview for Iron Man 2 where she discusses the physicality of her role, and again mentions that she's only "five-foot three." It's good to see that she's now being pretty consistent about this. 5ft3 it is.
CanadianBabe said on 10/Nov/10
Well we know that the absolute max is 5'3. (So Rob you should get rid of the .5 to make it accurate.) Because of that article in Huffington post she claimed 5'3, and people expecially celebs don't downgrade there height (well not in this height range) the try to get every inch. So I believe that she is between 5'2-5'3...prob 5'2.5 and 5'3 in shoes.
PetiteBombshell said on 7/Nov/10
She is 5'2.5. 5'3 in shoes.

Most short women have killer curves. I think that is what makes them so attractive.

I think Lauren might be ugly. Otherwise she wouldn´t feel the need to comment on herself that way. And I can tell you that not all tall blue eyed blond girls are pretty. Far from it! In Denmark where I live I see hundreds of ugly tall blonde girls. And by the way: I have a really beautiful - and short! -eurasian female friend who gets far more attention than my blued eyed blonde female friend. And it is certainly not in a negative way!
Lol said on 25/Sep/07
I bet Lauren is ugly and height is the only thing she can use. Honey, it's called proportion. You can be 6'0" and look like a stump, or you can be 5'4" and still look tall.
melissa said on 19/Sep/07
that picture with Ryan makes her look positively tiny, you have to remember that the hat gives her a bit more height cause it's not fitted tightly on her head, I say at the very most she's 5'2 no more than that.

Lauren, you are so conceited. go post that **** about yourself in your myspace blog or wherever you post. just becuz you are taller doesnt mean you are better than shorter girls and who says that "shorter women earn less money and are less happier throughout life"!! that´s bull****! stop trying to make urself feel better by putting others down.

Lauren are you really that superficial and self involved? Lacking self esteem? Thanks for telling us how awesome you are and how much better you are than all the short girls out there. I hope some day you grow up and realize how immature you sound. I (among other guys) love short girls and don't need them to have "ultra high heels, big hair, [or] loud voices" to notice them. I find them more attractive than tall, passive-aggressive , haughty, self-aggrandizing B@%$%^s who need to make others feel bad in order to feed their ego.
As far as Scarlett is concerned I think she's more around 5'3" maybe 5'2" Click Here
o said on 6/Sep/07
For god's sake Lauren what was your post all about? Thanks for sharing your stats, is the rest of you as perfect as your height and your hair? Your post screams insecurity and I have no idea how any of it relates to how tall Scarlett is. Set up your own blog page to praise yourself this is not the place for it.
Lauren G. said on 4/Sep/07
Height is authentic power. Studies have shown that naturally tall women (those not wearing heels) and men earn more money and are happier throughout life. Not that there is anything wrong with being short. I'm 5' 8.5" barefoot even without the enhancement of heels I always get noticed in a positive way. Short girls have compensatory displacement and need ultra high heels, big hair and loud voices to get attention, negative attention at that. I wouldn't trade my natural blonde hair, blue eyes and height for anything. There's alot that can be changed, albeit temporarily, height isn't on of them.

Know what you mean tasha, I am 5'5 and when I put on hot these days 4" platforms to go out I look taller than most people at a bar. Not until I started wearing high heals I realized most men are under 5'10 ;~(
tasha said on 16/Aug/07
when you are small, you are seen as "cute". Lots of guys love short girls, so embrace in it! Scarletts been voted as "Sexiest woman alive" in so many polls, and she isn't tall, she's small. Just goes to show... Im about 5 ft 6, but i actually want to be shorter. I feel to tall among my smaller friends, and im rather slim, and im afraid of looking lanky!
not tall not short said on 29/Jul/07
Now, all you not tall/not short girls out there: Scarlett is the perfect representative of our height! She is the 'bombshell' and is not tall, and doesn't try to be! Who said you had to be tall to attract the masses? 5'3" or 5'4 (who really cares) she is a great size. Scarlett has no problem with wearing flats doesn't try to 'mask' her size. So all of you out there who fall in between short and tall - embrace your girlish size and know that it IS desirable!
glenn said on 20/Jul/07
you know,shorter than 5-3 is very,very possible.saw her in heels.no way is she 5-4.

Yes, I think we should say shes shorter than 5-4!!

She has complex about her height... maybe we shouldn't say that she is shorter than 5'4. By the way she has got to breasts in Hollywood.
melissa said on 13/Jul/07
I just pictures of her with Woody Allen (they're filming a new movie in spain) she's wearing huge platform espadrilles which you can see through her jeans and she's still shorter than Woody. I'd say 5'1.
random said on 11/Jul/07
i've heard that she's only 5'1. i'm not sure if i believe that. i'd probably say 5'2 or 5'3, i doubt 5'4 though because that's almost average for females, and she's known as being a shortie

ohhhhh! Funny! You're all girls. Height is our problem, not yours. However, to me, 5'3 is already ok for boys. I'm 6'4 and horrible thin; my height doesn't do me a favor, too. And what do you think " I should do st for getting shorter"???. Girls are beautiful by anyway. Trust me, I'm fashion designer!
Kathy said on 5/Jul/07
I think that isn't true that when you get your period you stop growing. When I got it I was 13 and about 5'6". Now I am 16 and 5'8". Perhaps sometimes it is true. But not every time.
Anonymous said on 2/Jul/07
I did not mean anything by saying "forever stuck @ 5'2". 5'2" is a fine height or whatever height you are. What I meant to say was that at that point in my life I realize that if 5'2" is the height I'm meant to be then so be it. I stopped obsessing about my height and moved on. Fortunately I grew taller. That's all I meant.
Anonymous said on 2/Jul/07
I think being tall is a bigger "problem" than being short.. I mean, being tall is a good thing, don't get me wrong, but if you're short, you can just wear shoes with heals;) if you're tall, there is nothning you can do.
Anonymous said on 1/Jul/07
Annonymous did you get your period at 14? That was my entire point. Every doctor will tell you that one usually stops growing after one gets it (this applies to women only, according to medical studies men can grow until they are in their late teens early 20s) I am sure there are exceptions but they are rare. And for god's sake why would you say "forever stuck at 5'2 as if that was a crime? By writing such things you only make lots of girls who post on this site and are 5'2 feel terrible as if they are total misfits. By the way, I hope your self-esteem also grew by those 3' (I do not intend to be mean, I am sorry if I offended you) but think first before you write. Your views seems to correspond with the pictures in fashion magazines who make so many girls in our society anorexic and bulimic. I am glad there is no desease to cure what people consider short height, I cannot imagine what those who feel short would do to themselves.
Anonymous said on 29/Jun/07
Anonymous, take it from me, I'm 23 years old. When I was in high school, it seem as though I would forever be stuck at 5'2". Then for for some reason after high school I grew taller and now stand at 5'5". So, don't worry so much, you're only 14.
annonymous said on 29/Jun/07
I am actually A GIRL not a boy, a dork yes because I studied hard in school and "i am what i am" must have slept through her biology classes: once you stop growing NOTHING will make you grow. Also if somone is lactose intolerant there are meds for it, a glass of water? LOL Keep on exercising boys and girls though, what is good for the body is good for the mind, perhaps you will stop being obsessed with how tall you are ;)
I'm what I am said on 29/Jun/07
Hey, I get job. try hard to get taller, are you female? I hope that you're not. Basketball, jumping, hanging, tennis,...may help you. Weight training (not lifting like the athlete)because building muscle = built testosterone (male hormone); S"x""lity = improve your hormone. You have milk allergy, try eating an egg and cheese everyday then drinking a glass of water. You have to work much, try to stretch yourself everytime you get a rest and before sleeping & getting up. The last advice: try to believe. However I don't say that I'm right. Good luck!
Anonymous, if you're a boy; yes,you're a dork; you should do sports to increase your height. But if you're a girl, I think you're beautiful (if Shakira's 4'11, there are a lot of female Hollywood Star at this height, even shorter). Keep on drinking milk and sleeping 9 hour everynight and try to stretch your body anytime you can. But my opinion for a girl: curve is more important than height; children and women are beautiful, grannies and men are not. You're a little girl, you're lucky. Curvy body and cute face melt every heart of man.
annonymous said on 28/Jun/07
try hard to get taller: no, once you reach puberty you stop growing, at least women do, by puberty I mean once you start menstruating, annonymous: the same applies to you but you are only 14th, you may grow taller. By the way, do you guys realize that many tall girls want to be petite???
try hard to get taller said on 27/Jun/07
Could I ask? Which sport? I have an allergy to milk. I get immediately diarrhorea after drinking milk. I don't have much time for sleeping everyday because of my job. But I'm allowed to do sport before sleeping and at weekend.
*Notice: 22 - but still a virgin and want to be taller. Is there still a chance for me to get growing up?

shes probably below 5'3. every picture ive seen with her she looks very short plus she admitted herself that she is very short at numerous times. regardless, shes definitely the most beautiful actress is Hollywood right now
dits said on 6/Jun/07
I'd say 5'3..I'm pretty certain she's 5'3. I've seen all her movies (hot hott haha) and seen her at award functions..I think one movie that really shows her correct height is 'In good company'..She never wears any lady shoes in that movie,just sneakers,so it's easy to guess her height correctly.And standing next to Dennis Quaid and Topher Grace,I can definitely say she's 5'3..
5'4 may be pulling it a bit too much,because she has never looked 5'4 to me in any of her movies.
vixen said on 1/Jun/07
Well, she could be 5'4". She'd look shorter because of her build, she's not the thinnest girl around (not calling her fat!). I always thought she was about 5'2".
Umm, her dress size is probably like a 6-8. Hmm, not like I would know!

Here is Scarlett looking four inches shorter then 5'10 Don Henley in MASSIVE heels (well if he was standig perfectly straight anyway). This picture the footwear is completly visibile and for the most part the two are standing straight. MAybe she's not as short as 5'1 but she is definetly not 5'4.
anonymous said on 1/Apr/07
i completely agree with random person. she looks about 2-3 inches shorter than woody allen (5'4.5 at best) and in scoop she is standing next to hugh jackman at a pool seen and they are both barefoot and he simply TOWERS over her. my best friend is 5'4 and her boyfriend is 6'2 and they don't look nearly as far apart. she is also a lot smaller than johnathan rhys meyers in matchpoint, and he is about 5'7 and she was wearing 3 inch heels and she only came up to his eyes. and she admitted it herself that she's 5'1! what proof more do you need?
Random Person said on 1/Apr/07
Normally, this site is extremly accurate with heights but in this case, I really think her listing is off. In the movie Scoop, there is a scene in which Hugh Jackman, Woody Allen, and Scarlett are all barefoot and Hugh simply looks like a giant. In that scene Woody hits him just about his chin, and Scarlett, Scarlett barely comes past his shoulders. Also came up to about Woody's eyebrows. She has to be about 5'1, maybe 5'2 on a really good day. A downgrade is in order here.

What the hell! "child", "Alexa" do you even know who Scarlet Johansson is. She's pretty short by today's standards. This girl is 5'3" maybe a half inch more at best. Check out this pic of her and Natalie Portman. 5'6" , 5'9" that's just ridiculous!!!!!

I'v stood next to her many times and I am 5'3 1/2 right on the dot and she was half a head over me and I was wearing 4 inche heels that would have brought me up to at least 5'6. She was wearing 2 inch heels. I'd say she's closer to 5'6 if not taller.

In Match Point she reaches exactly the eyes of Jonathan Rhys-Myers, that means 4" shorter than him with huge heels (at least 4" themselves), that makes her 5' or 5'1

she muct feel ripped off being almost a foot shorter than her twin ideally she would be like 5-8 to 5-11
Qiana said on 29/Dec/06
In instyle they said she was 5 ft 3, but to me shes always looked around 5ft4 or 5ft5. I think she just looks shorter because she has VERY short legs. I don't know shes a hard person to judge, but I don't think theres any way she's below 5ft3 honestly. Plus shes dating Josh Hartnet and hes 6ft3 and if you look at candid pictures of them togther she dosen't look short compared to him. She comes up to his chin. Now if hes really 6ft3 then I would say shes around 5ft4 or 5ft5. So finishing off I think she's either 5ft4 ot 5ft5. No taller no smaller.

I'm watching 'The Prestige Special' at the moment and just saw an interview with Michael Caine. He revealed that he had a conversation with Scarlett Johansson asking her height. She replied 5'1.
Anthony said on 11/Nov/06
Some reports on Scarlett sightings:
"At around 7pm on saturday I saw Scarlett Johansson walking east on Houston, right past Lafayette. She's tiny & gorgeous."
"I am an Australian journalist and I work for Fairfax and write for the Sydney Morning Herald and the Sun Herald. I had the pleasure of interviewing Scarlett Johansson in London when she was doing promotional work for Match Point.
May I just say that she is indeed gorgeous in the flesh- no doubt about it. I did not find her to be as 'voluptuous' as many claim- she is quite small boned, actually, and no more than 5'3. But as to her face- in one word, stunning."
I think Scarlett is marginally over 5'3 on a good day but is otherwise somewhere between 5'2 and 5'3.
talker said on 7/Nov/06

Scarlett Johansson is 155 cm tall cause when she came to Venezia last month to present her last movie all italian tvies said she is that tall several times and if I get no wrong I believe that she herself has told she is 5'1" and I heard this is for sure

I saw her a couple months ago while she was in NYC filming the Nanny Diaries on the Upper East Side. I think she looked about 5'3", because my friend is 5'4" and she was JUST taller than her by about an inch.

Couldn't agree more, Ashley. I think 5'3 is about right. In most pics, she's just under Josh's chin.

I just saw Scoop - if Scarlett Johansson is 5' 4 that would make her an inch shorter than Woody Allen, but she appeared to be a little more, perhaps two inches shorter, so 5'2 or 5'3 makes sense. My gut tells me 5'2 and Woody's closer to 5'4 just from seeing them both standing next to 6'1 Jackman.

I agree with the people who say she cant be listed this when Woody Allen is presently listed 5'5".She is clearly wearing 3" heels in that photo,so if Allen doesnt get taller she has to lose 3",Allen still looks about half an inch taller there.This is a good photo because one can see their feet.
Bryant said on 26/Apr/06
I saw her today on filming Nanny Diaries on the Columbia University campus and she looks about 5'3" maybe 5'4" judging from about 5 feet away. She was wearing some flat Chuck Taylor's so the shoes would not be a factor. I was surprised by how short she looked. Still looked amazingly hot.
hollywood insider said on 15/Mar/06
You must have seen her in "FANTASYLAND" because she had a rehearsal that very afternoon for the presentations of the Scientific/Technical awards portion of
the OSCARS (she was hostess/presenter for this portion which was actually taped the day before the official OSCAR ceremony). At this ceremony/award presentation, things like Best special effects in a motion picture would be awarded/presented...she was there between 11 and 5 p.m. Besides, she already went to Disneyland back in August, and got into a fender bender with some woman with 2 kids (Scarlett claims the paparazzi were following/chasing her which caused her to panic and flee, thus hitting the other womans car in the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom) so like she would really go there on a Saturday afternoon to stand around in line -- you are taking portions of tabloid gossip, tabloid photo's (hence the baseball cap, sunglasses and grey hooded sweater) sounds way too familiar to me -- but it is good to dream! I fantasize about her all the time too! I just keep it real....By the way, she is 5'4"
tasha said on 1/Mar/06
On Saturday February 25, 2006 I spotted Scarlett Johansson at Disneyland. I was in line for Space Mountain and the fastpass was shut down. The wait was 1 hr and 30 mins but my boyfriend and I decided to tough it out. About 30 minutes later my boyfriend tells me the girl behind us has really pretty perfect lips like that one actress from The Horse Whisperer. So I looked and the girl looked like her, she was very short I am 5'6 almost 5'7 and she had to be 5'3 at the most. I couldn't belieev it was her. She had on sunglasses that hid her face a great deal and a gray sweater hood on, with a base ball cap underneath covering all her hair. Once the sun sat she took off her glasses and then I could see her distincitve mole and it was her. She appeared to be there with her mom and dad and maybe a friend. She was so normal. She was signing songs with her family and literally right behind us in line. It was really crowded so I decided not to apprach her to get an autograph or picture although my boyfriend and I really wanted to. It was weird being close to someone famous like that in an everyday setting. She seemed really down to earth though.
kendra said on 15/Feb/06
I'd just like to say I always thought she was about 5'7 or 5'8 because she always seems rather tall, but now that I know she isn't it makes me realise that many famous women in hollywood are below average height. If that is the case I can't see why Scarlett would feel like she is too short when many other hollywood stars are also petite. IMO her complaining about her "average" height just makes all the other women around that height feel self-concious about themselves. I mean this girl has got beauty, fortune and fame and yet she hates that she is not tall, I think she should be proud of where she has got without being tall. The fact is 5'4 is the average height for women and yet people go around saying that 5'4 is short and it is something to be ashamed of. And as if Scarlett looks bad in jeans, any girl with a great slim figure looks good in jeans, you don't need to be tall, if you wanna be just add heels, they make everyone look better no matter what your height is.

I think Scarlet is 5'3, and Thora birch is 5'2 to 5'2.5. Thora's shoes were bigger in Ghost World.

I think I remember reading the same thing in Teen Vogue but I remember reading I'm 5'3 and he's 6'3 (because she said they were a whole foot different)

I agree that she is probably a little shorter than 5'4. 5'4 females tend to add more so they can appear above average. Below 5'4 females will say 5'4 so they can appear average.
But I don't agree that people only complain about their height if they are short. Some average people wish they were taller.

Ms. Johansson is 5'3". Here is a really good picture of her standing next to Saturday Night Live's Amy Poehler (5'2"). She looks a solid inch taller than Amy. http://scarlettjohansson.org/gallery/displayimage.php?album=473&pos=32

I knew I was right. People are questioning her claimed 5'4, because she's not 5'4. She's the same height as thora birch who also lies and says 5'4 (I will not believe thora to be 5'4 unless I saw her get measured myself! LOL)

She may well think she is short because of her siblings, her twin brother is supposedly 6'3" and here is her sister:

i agree with rose and Lol, people only complain about their height if they really are short. I'd bet she's between 5'2"-5'3" and says she's 5'4". People believe her because so many women who are between 5'2"-5'3" say they're 5'4", distorting what one thinks is a certain height, and so, we grow accustomed to seeing women who are 5'2"-5'3" as 5'4" and women who are actually below this as 5'2" to 5'3". Johansson has a complex about her height which can only mean she's at least an inch smaller than 5'4".

I read Elle too and she is talking about not looking good in jeans because she is short but if she really is 5'4" then in the 3-4 inch heels she loves to wear with jeans then she would be 5'7" or 5'8"- very tall for a woman so I think she let that slip because she is really 1-2 inches shorter than she claims. She also has admitted she has a complex about her height and goes on about it a lot. Someone with a complex is obviously going to add on an inch or two also 5'4" is average and you can be really tall in heels so why would she have a complex???

In Elle (UK Edition) - February 2006
Scarlett Johansson "I'm quite short - about 5'4" "
[Editor Rob: oh-oh...she's using the dreaded word Rob fears the most...'ABOUT']

Sorry, Editor Rob for posting two posts at the almost same time; wasting valuable space :/. I found a picture of Scarlett and Maria Menounos 5' 8" from the Golden Globe after party. I might be wrong but they're the same height in this picture. But again as I said Scarlett looks in some pictures 5'3"-5'4" and in others 5'5"-5'6", but here something 5'7"-5'8". But I do admit that I don't know how high her heels nor Maria's are:
Lol said on 17/Jan/06
I agree with Editor Rob there's some pictures where she really got bad posture / laid back. You'll notice that whenever she has her hair pulled up and you can the neck and upper-body is visible you'll see her back slouches. Of course that's not visible when her hair covers it. She admitted that she didn't do training at all and I know myself when your back and shoulders gets weakened it starts to slouch, a common phenomenon.
I guess she becomes conscientious about her look especially in occasions as Golden Globe and straightens her back up as high as possible.
in my opinion when both Amy and Scarlett is standing next to each other Amy's ankle appears to be higher than Scarlett's even though Scarlett is closer (1-5 inches) to the camera. Plus this angles is quite good one to show that Scarlett is taller perhaps 5-6 taller than Amy. Watch how she looks downward plus where Amy's shoulders are at Scarlett's. I know Amy said in the beginning of her joke she would have the exact same outfit as her guests in case she needed to kick-in. But I guess that this scene wouldn’t be as much fun if Amy had wore heels that been as tall as Scarlett’s. hence become shorter than her. It’ would lost the comedy-beat drastically.
Here Scarlett is next to Tina Fey, although I admit I don't know what kind of footwear Scarlett and Tina is wearing beneath their dresses. But they got the same body frame if that counts as an evidence. :S
These pictures are from the end of SNL I talked about. Scarlett is in the golden t-shirt and Amy in the dark-grey shirt.
Yes, Scarlett is closer the camera than Amy but Scarlett has her legs wider position than Amy. Hence she becomes shorter than her and still she looks 5-6+ cm taller than her.
What amazes me is in some pictures she appears to be 5'5"- 5''6 and in some 5'3"-5'4" :S it's really confusing. The only answer I got to that is as Editor Rob hinted she has random postures since she’s not exercising and her posture suffers of it.
I qualified guess is that her height is 5'4" (162.5 cm) however 1.63 cm (5'4") is still not that tall in my opinion.

I'm with Chris on this. An absolute necessary downgrade if you ask me, or anyone else in the world who's not obsessed with her being taller. Even if she were an inch taller than Amy Poeher, which I highly disagree with, she would be 5'2.5".
Lol said on 17/Jan/06
I saw and re-saw the SNL to actually compare Scarlett to Amy. My conclusions are at the end of the SNL you see Scarlett wear flat shoes and Amy is wearing sneakers. When they hug each other you see that Scarlett is taller than Amy Poehler. Another I observed was that in the end of Scarlett's opening she turns to Amy before they cut to Taco Town-scene, Scarlett is taller than Amy. BUT, it's very, very hard to actually see whether Amy's and Scarlett's high heels are the same height. It's almost impossible to see that since they cut so fast to the Taco Town-scene before you actually get a glimpse of their shoes. And if you notice her body-frame is bigger than Amy's especially Scarlett's shoulders are higher and wider than Amy's throughout the whole first singing act.
ANother thing also you notice is that when both is standing in same posture in the first act you notice that Scarlett is taller than her by 1˝-2 inches. I do not however think Scarlett is taller than 5'4 but definately not 5'2 as some people try to claim. Because she was the same height as Tina Fey in the last act, with the Pride and Prejudice-parody.

Ive met her in person and she is small - super small, like 5'2 or 5'3.

Amy Poehler "says" she's 5'2". She is probably 5'1" and Johansson is really 5'3" as she complained about in the German magazine.
Anonymous said on 15/Jan/06
How can you have her at 5'4" when in heels she is taller than Woody Allen, 5'5". It's a contradictory or oversight. Clearly, downgrade to 5'3" at least.

Just saw Scarlett on SNL with (allegedly 5'2) Amy Poehler. They were wearing identical outfits for the opening monologue, same shoes, and Scarlett looked about 2" taller than Amy, IMO.

Wow in that photo she looks TINY!
absent said on 20/Dec/05
In a German magazine she complains that she's only 160 cm and that people always say "Oh my god she's so tiny". Again maybe a problem with translation, but why should people react that way if she was 5ft 4 in if it's the average height for women in USA?

Are you REALLY sure she's 5"4 as look at her next to Murray in Lost in Translation and also in photos fron premiers she looks v. small indeed this deserves investigating at least!

Sighting: almost tripped into Scarlett Johansson as were leaving. She is shorter than expected (maybe 5’ 2”) but very beautiful and voluptuous in person.
