Uma Thurman's Height is 5ft 11.25in (181 cm)

American actress best known for roles in movies such as Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Gattaca, Batman & Robin, Dangerous Liaisons, Mad Dog and Glory, Beautiful Girls, The Truth about Cats and Dogs, Paycheck and Nymphomaniac. In Time Magazine (22/9/03), she mentioned her tall stature, saying "I'm like 5ft 11." She may in fact be rounding down her height by a fraction.

Comment on the Height of Uma Thurman

Thanks for updating the picture Rob. :).

Rob, could you add these to her credits: Dangerous Liaisons, Mad Dog and Glory, Beautiful Girls and Nymphomaniac to her credits?
LoganNoll1996 said on 27/Jul/15
Why would Uma downgrade her height? 5'11 is tall for a woman but no one really makes a big deal about it. Usually it's very short women or men under 6 feet that exaggerate their height.

Is there anything more ravishing than her appearance in Liaisons or Baron Munchausen?...she was a very key figure in my, uh...puberty.
Mon said on 14/Jun/15
She is surely as tall as Travolta, in Pulp Fiction dance scene she alone was in bare feet. Final verdict: Uma looks to be a quarter inch under 6 foot.
Mon said on 10/Jun/15
Jewel. I think a lot of models are billed as taller because that gets them work, but if they move into films their agents may well think claiming 6 foot will cost them work. I was overestimating Tarentino by a half inch (though she is as tall as him with moderate high heels). Maybe she isn't quite the full two yards tall. But I am absolutely certain she is a stronger 5'11 than listed here.
Jewel said on 9/Jun/15
Rob do you ever get celebrities and their agents contacting you to lower their heights? Reason being, an awful lot of women have been moved from the 6ft group into the 5.11! It's a but funny:)
[Editor Rob: none I can remember!]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/May/15
Affleck had 3in on her. That's why he's listed a fraction over 6ft2 and Thurman a fraction over 5ft11.
Judd said on 21/May/15
M, it she is 6' then Affleck has to be 6'3" because he had 3" on her...
I think she's closer to 5'11 than 6'...5'11-11.25" is better tran 5'11.75-6'0"...
M said on 19/May/15
She is for sure 6' tall (1.83m)
Mon said on 14/May/15
Women don't like being thought oversized, and very tall actresses especially have good reason for falsely claiming to be shorter than they are. Been watching Kill Bill. If she is as listed above David Carradine needs maybe an inch taken from his listed height. Throughout KB they seem to be shooting angles to hide her height relative to his, though she wears rock bottom shoes. In the extras docu Tarantino calls her gargantuan. Her head seems really big in shot with Carradine's, while her feet (you get to see a lot of her feet) look huge. IMO she is still six foot tall when she goes to bed in the evening. In the KB collection extras there is a deleted scene in which Carradine seems somewhat shorter than her.

Rob, what's the lowest she could be?
[Editor Rob: just over 5ft 11, generally she looks taller than just 5ft 11.]

IMO her low height is 180,5 cms, and probably wakes up at 182,5 cms...
5'11.25" is fair or even a very strong 5'11"...

Must be 180 she almost as tall as john travolta

She is really 5'11. Definitely 5'11. She maybe can be 5'10.5, but 5'11 sounds better. Here there's a pic that will explain this better:

Click Here

While Travolta's peak height was 6'0.5 back then, he really looked about 4 centimeters taller than Thurman in that pic.
MasterX said on 1/Jan/15
Uma is like a weak 5'11. Shes a solid 5'10.5 girl. She looked 1.5 inches shorter than bryan greenberg who is 6'0
in the movie Prime
Fred said on 29/Nov/14
I just saw her on the Swedish talkshow "Skavlan". The host Fredrik Skavlan is 183 cm and when Uma stood next to him, there was a clear difference of at least 5-6 cm or 2 inches. Uma was wearing pumps with a 2 inch heel and Fredrik Skavlan dress shoes with a heel of appr. 1.25 inch. She is definitely not taller than 176-177 cm. Just search for Skavlan and Uma and you will probably agree.
Lee Whit said on 3/Oct/14
Just watched "be cool" equal to Travolta so has to be near 6'... or just under.
177cmGuy said on 11/Aug/14
Uma looked 5'11.25 next to 6'0 John Travolta in Pulp Fiction. At minimum she is 180cm. Anyone assuming 175cm is joking themselves.
Just said on 12/Apr/14
@MT Uma is taller than Nicole Kidman, so Uma can't be just 5'9. This listing is legit.
Anon said on 8/Mar/14
She doesn't stand much shorter than John Travolta in Pulp Fiction promo shots (she's not even standing straight compared to him). She can't be far from his 6'0+ measure.
MT said on 25/Jan/14
I just spotted Uma at a restaurant in NYC and there's no way she's 5'11". She's tall for a woman, but she's about 5'9", maybe 5'10" tops. Every celebrity lies about their height. And yes, she put on a little weight. She's still attractive, but she looks ordinary.
CL said on 29/Nov/13
I posted on here before that I sat next to Uma on a couple occasions at my favorite sushi bar. She always wore flats and was always consistently an inch taller than me. I stand 5'10" dead even and typically wear shoes with 1" heels. This height is dead on.
oneguy said on 19/Nov/13
She's 5'10''
nona said on 12/Nov/13
Uma is easily atleast 6 ft tall. Off late she has put on some weight and has fillled out her frame nicely. In the pic on this site she looks to be about 140 lbs but now she is closer to 160 lbs with nice shapely hips and a filled out chest

Quite tall next to colin firth and jefffrey dean morgan in the accidental husband. 181cm.
Askany said on 31/Jul/13
1.81m?? Really unlikely.
His brother Mipam is listed 1.90m on his model agency (Click Here).
And here (Click Here) there is a set of their pictures together. She has ~5cm heels, and still there are ~10cm difference between them.

Next to Jeremy Northampton in The Golden Bowl she is clearly taller in every scene and he is at least 6' tall
Silent d said on 22/Jun/13
181cm. She is about the same height as elle macpherson who is listed as 183cm.
truth178cm said on 4/Jun/13
at least 5ft11.
D said on 26/May/13
Pardon me, but if we accept that John Travolta was 6' in his prime, how on earth can Uma be 5'11''? In "Pulp Fiction they are both barefoot in one scene (the dance) and he is clearly 3'' taller-at the very least.
Those who claim there was 1'' max are probably either drunk or simply have no idea what an inch actually looks like.
Dmeyer said on 12/Mar/13
Uma 181cm plus 1cm sleepers 182cm caradine looks max 182-183cm 1.7 in heels on so 5'10-10.5 by kill Bill time
Dmeyer said on 12/Mar/13
Looks too tall NeXT to caradine to be just 180cm 181cm is better thanks Rob , also 181cm is close enaugh 5'11 to claim it

Zach said on 26/Feb/13
When I saw her as Poison Ivy in Batman and Robin, she looked very smoking hot and that's my favorite movie with her in it. Arnold Schwarzenegger played Mr. Freeze saying, "TONIGHT'S FORECAST: A FREEZE IS COMING!" I bet that was funny! Uma Thurman looked hot in Batman and Robin. Gotta have that!
Dmeyer said on 14/Feb/13
Rob i cant buy 5'11 flat for please upgreat her 5'11.25-11.5 maybe got measured 5'11.2-11.4 and just says 5'11

[Editor Rob: yeah, I think it is believable for her to measure a little over that mark, I'll give her 181]
Dmeyer said on 14/Jan/13
Rob i met her she looked taller than flat 5'11 she was 2-2.5 in taller than travolta in 1 inch shoes like 6'3.5 shoes on , please upgreat her 5'11.25 as i think she could be 5'11.5 and rounds down
truth said on 5/Jan/13
181cm and smoking hot!
Arch Stanton said on 31/Dec/12
Rob, any comments on her and Elle Macpherson? Do you think she looks taller or shorter?
[Editor Rob: they could be very similar, one (Uma) rounding down to 5ft 11 a bit.]
Arch Stanton said on 11/Nov/12
Yeah Dmeyer I think you're right she can look 6'3" range in heels. I think 5'11.5".
Silent d said on 31/Oct/12
180cm. I remember she claimed 6 foot but then said close to 6 foot.
MaskDeMasque said on 20/Oct/12
5'11. Very tall girl.
Dmeyer said on 3/Oct/12
IF she is. 5'11 travolta was never 6'0.25 , she said im Like. 5'11 not i am
Dmeyer said on 2/Oct/12
Rob she towerd me and travolta in person if she says im Like 5'11 it could mean 11.25-11.5-11.75 she did have 3.5-4 in type she apeared taller than Nicole Kidman and theron in heels travolta wearing 1 in shoes 8 years ago was easy 5-6cm shorter
Bobby said on 29/Sep/12
I was 6"1.5" for much of my life. Live long enough, and our height diminishes.
Now at age 62, I'm a mere 6'0". If she says 5'11", I'd say she's right. What difference does it make. She's obvious got a great figure and supermodel height for over 40 or any age. I would never throw her any woman like her out of bed.
Johnnyfive said on 16/Sep/12
5'11 is correct for her. I saw Pulp Fiction again for the 50th time and she consistently looks an inch shorter than 6'0 John Travolta in it, especially when they both dance barefoot, in that scene she even looks like an inch and a half shorter.
logan noll 1996 said on 9/Aug/12
5'11 sounds right.
Sam said on 25/Jan/12
She was not towered by Travolta but in Pulp Fiction they dance barefoot together and Travolta is taller than her by at least a solid inch.
SIlent d said on 24/Jan/12
She was never towered by travolta. How do you know travolta wasn't wearing lifts? Anything under 180cm is ridiculous. I think 181cm is right on the money. Nearly a full six foot.
ted said on 26/Sep/07
Rob, i have seen listings for Uma at 5-10(in bigheadedpygmies or sth like that) and Jorge Garcia at 5-9.She said that she is 5-11;Why she claimed that she is shorter than in real life?Maybe because she is?And if Garcia is 5-11.25 ,they list him at 175cm???That's impossible;if he was 5-11 even a blind man would notice the difference,it is 6cm!I have never seen in my life a legit 5-11(as he listed here)put down at 5-9.Is it possible that they are so wrong or they are way shorter than we imagine?Rob?

[Editor Rob: There's 0% chance he is 5ft 9. People can estimate or list whatever they want though.]

I think Franco is right.Maybe we all lead on with her giant heels.But still 181-182 "

Thanks "father ted" hehehe :D yeah, she does look 181-182cm, not less than 181 not more than 182. ;)
asdasd said on 28/Aug/07
i believe her true barefoot height is 182cm. but in most of cases she looks taller. For example in this pic seem like 185 or 186
Josh said on 25/Aug/07
When she was on the view she said she was 5'11 1/2

Franco said on 22/Aug/07
Uma Thurman is 181-182cm, infact she looks more 181 than 182 but of course with heels she's a giant and the overestimation begins.

she can be 190cm in heels that's for sure.

i dont find her gorgeous or even beautiful though,but thats my personal opinion. :) i prefer Jennifer Morrison and Drew Barrymore. hehe
Rider said on 19/Aug/07
she's got to be 6ft, but who cares? she's gorgeous!
ted said on 19/Aug/07
182cm for Uma is very precise.She is not over six feet.Actually she looks shorter than John Glover(181cm) in Batman and robin.Although i don't know if he wore lifts.
fp said on 19/Aug/07
Wow! she's a giant, she has to be 6'0+ because even if she has heels on it does'nt matter because if she stood up straight she could look right over the top of glenn's head. I've seen guys listed on this site as being 6'2+ that don't stand any taller than she is there. I think I saw a pic of glenn and the Rock and he was only a little taller than that.
Don said on 17/Aug/07
She's 6' & maybe a bit taller than that too. Misha & Anthony are right. She has to round down. If you're a 6 foot woman, you'll probably never get cast on anything other than sci-fi or on a friend's indie pic, meanwhile the Halle Berrys' & Scarlett Johanssons' can go out for any part.
Anonymous said on 6/Aug/07
my guess was 6'0
ethan hawke and her looked the same but yes, i agree with tall's comment
glenn said on 5/Aug/07
who is this anonymous moron?
Anonymous said on 4/Aug/07
im 5'11 and my sister 5'8 and we dont look that different in height measurements. She looks dressed up, so she probably wearing heels, that why she looks so tall. I say 6'' even. WHo is this fool, glen? just wondering...
Sonja said on 29/Jul/07
Was Uma wearing any high heels? If so, did anybody deduct the height of her heels to estimate her height?
joe said on 19/Jul/07
I saw those pics too. Elle slouches in many of the pics. In some pics, Elle is 2 inches taller, in some Uma is 2 inches tallet, in some they are the same. She is 100% at least 6 foot (Elle is 6 Feet) or a little taller.
Leung said on 8/Jul/07
Saw recent pictures of Thurman and Elle Macpherson and Thurman looked about 1.5 inches taller than Elle, so yeah Thurman could very well be a legit 6'
Anonymous Rex said on 7/Jul/07
looks taller than leo dicapprio's pic with glenn if she would straighten up.
Franco said on 6/Jul/07
Glenn in the picture = 0WNED :-D lol

yep looks no less than 181cm
Juillet said on 5/Jul/07
she is 6'. i am a woman and am 6' and i've met her and we are eye to eye. we were both in flats.
tall said on 26/Jun/07
Here it is, guys, women who are six feet tall routinely downplay their height because we are tired of the comments from total strangers. In pictures we lean, bend at the knee, especially when we are taking pics with shorter men and most of them are shorter.
asdf said on 5/Jun/07
I agree that she is at least 6 feet, maybe even over. I remember watching the E True Hollywood Story about her and they said she was 6 feet at 13 when she first started modeling. I'm sure she grew a bit more since then.
Betty said on 27/May/07
In kill bill 2, when shes is fightin elle (daryl hannah) . Daryl is in 2 inch heels , mkaing her baout 6 feet. Uma is barefoot and still has an inch on her.
Shes more like 6 feet at least/

Matt said on 4/Apr/07
Oh my god! She's actually slouching and still much taller then Glenn! With these heals, she looks about 6'2! I'd say her real height is 6'0.
Maria said on 31/Mar/07
Well at least people here in Iceland are VERY tall compared to chinese and japanese people:) I'm very tall (1.77cm) aand I almost never wear heals because of the height but like a lot of guys here are 1.80 and over so things are alright;P
5'11 guy said on 30/Mar/07
Whoever said that the average height in China and Japan is 5'4 is thick. I'm white british, and 5'11.5, which is about average here in the south-west. All the Beijing Chinese guys I've met are around my height, give or take an inch. Japanese and southern Chinese tend to be shorter, about 5'9 usually.
Tory said on 27/Mar/07
She is 183.... In Pulp Fiction Uma and Travolta are almost the same. Travolta was like 186-187 cm.
KT said on 26/Mar/07
No way is she playing the feminine card by saying she's 5'11" when she's 6'0".She is not 6 feet.

Watch Pulp Fiction people. There is this dance scene with her and Travolta. You see them take their shoes off, and stand next to each other barefoot. Travolta was distinctly taller. So if Uma is 6 feet, then Travolta is close to 6'2. Which would then make Samuel L. Jackson close to 6'5".

Understand now?

She's 5'11.5 people.

Anonymous said on 21/Mar/07
Wow, she's really slouching bad and Glenn is standing pretty straight. There's a huge height difference here, even if you factor in the heels which may give her a 2 inch advantage over Glenn. She looks 6' to me. She plays the 5' 11" card because it feels more feminine to her.
Erika said on 21/Mar/07
Uma slouches much more than Glenn and I doubt she is in such heels, also 10 cm. heels give you like 8 cm - not more. Uma is clearly nothing less than 183 cm, nothing more also.
Joakim gren said on 21/Mar/07
I can see that the height difference on this picture between Glenn and Uma is 4.5"(11CM). Both are slouching but Uma slouches slightly more. I make a qualified guess that Glenn loses 1.25"(3CM) while Uma loses 1.5"(4CM). So if both where standing straight the height difference would be 4.75"(12CM). I asume Glenn is wearing regular sneakers which will give a Pivot point/height gain of 0.75"(2CM)making him 5'8.75"(175CM) so that makes Uma 6'1.5"(187CM). From the position of her hip and the way she leans forward and the way her upper torso is positioned I make a qualified guess that she is wearing 4"(10CM) heels with a rather steep angle and maybe only a 0.5"(1CM) platform. This will give her a Pivot point at 2.75"(7CM) above the ground giving her a height increase of 2.75"(7CM) so 187CM-7CM is 180CM or 5'10.75" and that is most likely her height. I will give her a full 5'11"(180.5CM) and that is also the heigh she herself has given so it is most likely true. 5'11.5" is a bit much I think!

[Editor Rob: she'd have slightly higher pivot, with a longer foot, not much but a little but I doubt glenn is in 3/4 inch shoes???]
Astrid said on 15/Mar/07
Think of the 4 inch rule... If Glenn's 5'8", he comes up to her eyebrows as it is.... which would make Uma AT LEAST 6 foot (probably taller, check out the slouch on her in this pic). Was she wearing heels Glenn?
Josh said on 14/Mar/07
I saw Uma on Regis & Kelly and she said she was 5 11 1/2.
Misha said on 14/Mar/07
People who think Uma is rounding up need to realize that she is so tall she is
in danger of losing roles. Look at her in sandals towering over David Carradine as they walk through the streets in a Kill Bill scene. 6'0" barefoot is an obvious minimum for her - she's slouching tremendously with Glenn and could easily be taller than six even.
Jordan said on 13/Mar/07
Dam she looks a good 5'11.5 maybe even 6'0.
dmeyer said on 13/Mar/07
i see 10 cm with a big sloush so 14 15 cm taller g;enn is about 5'9 in shoes so 6'3 in heels so 6 ft barefeet
Viktoria said on 13/Mar/07
this is not 8 cm, it is like 12-13 cm....And is she was not leaning, the difference would be around 15 cm. I think Uma is in heels. Her height barefoot must be around 183 cm. or 6 ft.
tacky said on 13/Mar/07
She's about 5'11'', but she leaning down to you, but now I wonder about her foot wear.In this picture she taller than you about 8 cm.
dmeyer said on 11/Mar/07
i think uma and famke are 5'11.75 to 6 ft and they claim 5'11 to get more roles
MJ said on 11/Mar/07
Friend of mine who worked with her said she easily clears six foot, dwarfing almost all of the men on set. Apparently downplays height for vanity reasons.
AL said on 2/Mar/07
Uma is a touch under 6feet tall as i met mher a few years back in LA,
I also haft to say she fancied me a bit. You could tell she was dying yo give me a snog.
Lilabeth said on 17/Feb/07
I take a guess at 6", im 5"11 but when i'm stood with someone 5"8 i don't look that much taller, she must be wearing heels. I think she's slouching because being a tall woman can sometimes be embarrasing at times because everyone comments, i think she looks great.
Shaunelle said on 13/Feb/07
She's def. 6'0. But when I see her in movies with actors, I wonder why she looks so average height? I am a little over 6' myself, and I'd say I am very tall for a girl. :P
Jordan said on 9/Feb/07
Easy 5'11
Anthony said on 7/Feb/07
There's no way she's 5'10. It doesn't make sense for her to round up. Most tall actresses would find themselves in the position to round own (like Geena Davis). I think Uma is at least 6'.
Glenn said on 6/Feb/07
You ever meet her malcom? 5-10 is ridiculous.5-11.5 minimum.
malcom said on 5/Feb/07
i dont think so. it is evident she is a tall woman. No doubt about it, and she is over the average, but looking his films i dont think she is more than 1,78. All actors and actress add one or two centimenters to their heights, but she said she was 5,11", maybe 5,10" seems to be right.
Glenn said on 5/Feb/07
I agree TNT.she gives the illussion of 6-1 in sneakers,so she is 6ft.
dmeyer said on 5/Feb/07
she looked 6'2.5 in heels
E-- said on 28/Jan/07
Why do you all say she's very, very tall! I mean i'm that tall too, and I've never thought of myself as very, very tall! Also when I talk to people and they ask about my height, their not like going all crazy because I'm almost 6'o''. Please.. If you're over 6'o'' then you can say that you're very, very tall if you're a woman, which I am =)
Bibis said on 14/Jan/07
gosh i didnt now all about "morning height" and stuff
Matt said on 13/Jan/07
Jeez, she's slouching, she looks like 8-9 inches taller then Glenn! She must be huge in heals! She is definitely like 6'0. She's tall- for a man even!
G-MANN said on 13/Jan/07
In that picture with Glenn she's definetely stooping (you can see her bending at the waist), but then she may wearing heels
Anonymous said on 13/Jan/07
Uma was dancing with John Travolta, not Tarantino.
Glenn said on 13/Jan/07
Big heels that gave the illussion of 6-3.

Dmeyer, it is not a lie to claim your morning height, because that is your original height
Danimal said on 12/Jan/07
Alex, I think he meant she looked looked 6'0" with sneakers, not in them. 6'0" barefoot, not 5'11" plus sneakers. 6'0" plus sneakers. Right Glenn?
Anni said on 12/Jan/07
I have seen many movies with Uma and I think her height is very close to 6 ft (183 cm.) - no way she is 180 or shorter. I remember that moment in Pulp Fiction where Uma dances with Tarantino barefoot - there was almost no difference between them!

Holly crap Glenn!!! she has 5-6 inches on you and she's leaning!!!! does she have sneakers or heels on?? also just to put it out there my oldest sister is also 5'11''-5'11.5'' lol
Alex said on 11/Jan/07
Glenn, if she was 6'0 in sneakers then 5'11 seems most accurate then.
Glenn said on 8/Jan/07
Thats the movie set I was at where she looked 6ft in sneakers.
carla said on 7/Jan/07
haven't you guys seen 'My super ex- girlfriend"? She's way tall. Plus my mom met Uma and they went out for coffee:) my mom is 5"5 half an inch taller than me
Glenn said on 4/Jan/07
She was wearing heels.but Ive seen her look 6ft in sneakers too.
Alex said on 3/Jan/07
Forgot to ask in the previous post, how much height do you lose from out of bed to night, Rob?

[Editor Rob: half an inch.]
Alex said on 3/Jan/07
Yea, thats what I normally tell people, 6'0.5. Or I'll say in between 6'0 and 6'1.
Alex said on 3/Jan/07
Rob, I'm like that too. I can be 6'1 flat for like 10 minutes or something but I'll drop to 6'0.75 then 6'0.5 by an hour or so after I am up. By the early afternoon I could be down to 6'0.25 then by night 6'0. I am 6'0.25 for most of the day though I believe.

[Editor Rob: nobody would question you if you said 6ft 1/2 inch, they couldn't tell otherwise probably.]
Alex said on 3/Jan/07
She looks like a legit 6'0 with Glenn. What she wearing heels there or not? If she was then shes more 5'11.5 probably. She looks 6'0 in her movies though.

I'm 6'2" in the morning for a little bit and 6'1" the rest of the day.
dmeyer said on 12/Dec/06
you are right rob i am 181.7 to 182.3 cm in the morning for like 20 minute then 181 for a few hours and most of the day i am closer to 5'11 flat

[Editor Rob: yeah I have a whopping....10 minutes hovering near the 5ft 8.5 mark...rapidly descending to 173cm by afternoon and then a few more mm to go for 172.7 mark.

so you only really claim 5ft 11 anyway...or like a 'hair over' 5ft 11 and 1/8th to be nitpickity ;) ?]
Ines said on 24/Oct/06
The more I look at Uma on TV, the more I think she is like 185 cm...
dmeyer said on 26/Sep/06
when someone claim his morning height is it a lie ?

[Editor Rob: its the maximum they stand, so not lying. But how many people see you at your peak...

there's not a chance in hell I can claim 174cm, because I only touch that mark for 10 minutes...and within a few hours I'm heading towards 5ft 8 flat, and always 5ft 8 flat beside any celeb]

mous said on 21/Sep/06
wow she looks amazing. glenn how recent is this picture? you are so lucky man - i'd never have the gall to come up to celebrities to ask for a picture
Jonathan said on 18/Sep/06
Why complain over how tall celebrities are? If Uma says she is a little over 5'11" then that is her height or if The Rock says he is a little over 6'4" tall then that is their heights. Oh by the way, 5'11 1/2" tall is basically 6ft tall. As for who is taller uma thurman or saffron burrows?" The only way we will actually know is when there is a full body shot of the two ladies standing next to each other.
kene said on 15/Sep/06
she must be in heels.. met her twice. she looks more like 180range..
Glenn said on 12/Sep/06
Big heels to a movie premiere.
Derek said on 12/Sep/06
Looks around 6'1"-6'2" in heels. I'm sure she's wearing heels with Glenn. Probably slightly under 6' barefoot.
dmeyer said on 12/Sep/06
even bending she looks 5 to 6 inches taller
dmeyer said on 12/Sep/06
i met her we were close in height 182 maybe 183

Here is Glenn's picture with Uma.
Chris said on 6/Sep/06
My friend met Uma when Uma visited Stockholm. My friend whos working as a massue gave Uma some massage. She said she was very nice and they talked for about an hour. She said she was very tall at about 182 cm.

[Editor Rob: back around time of Truth about dogs and cats, she also described herself as "5ft 10", although clearly rounding down a bit]
anonymous said on 3/Sep/06
I am a woman just under 5'10" an I stood right next to her both of us in flat shoes and she appeared to be just about my height.
dmeyer said on 1/Sep/06
mear leterman she look 183 184 cm i personaly think she is 6 i met her or aleast 5'11.75"
mike said on 31/Aug/06
letterman looked taller in that you tube clip, but with women/girls let's say a woman is 5'11, and a guy is let's say 6'1 or 6'2 and with decent to big size heels the woman can be just as tall as that guy, look at glenn with shakira and shania twain pics..... i bet barefoot he would tower over them easily but in the pics on this webiste he doesnt because they wear large heels and arent really close to glenn's 5'8
Glenn said on 15/Aug/06
She seems 5-11.5 to me.Rob has this pic and should be submitting soon.

[Editor Rob: maybe give it a week, I'll get up some music guys first this week]
erika said on 14/Aug/06
i watched her on the howard stern show after her and ethan broke up and howard asked how tall she was and she said she was 5'10" and a tad...
dmeyer said on 10/Aug/06
i met her on be cool she looked 2 inches taller than travolta she was with 3 .5 to 4 inches heels looked about 6 ft 3.5 to 64 in hells so around 6 barfeet
Anonymous said on 3/Aug/06
Glenn said somewhere that Uma is 6'1- 6'3 in heels. If he saw her at an event wearing a long dress then she must have been wearing at least 3-4" heels. That makes her anywhere from 5'10-6' barefoot. But I don't think Uma downplays her height. Hollywood is a male-dominated business. If anything she would add inches because it makes it easier to believe that her male co-stars are as tall as they say they are.
Glenn said on 28/Jul/06
Photo coming!
Anonymous said on 27/Jul/06
wtf, uma was on letterman and they were practically the same height. someone watch the clip of them when uma was on to promote my super ex-gf movie. they actually stood on the same platform (as some may not know, the area where the guest sits and letterman's desk is actually raised)
she wasn't even wearing high-heels, but flat soled shoes, and she was his height. either she is over 6', or letterman has shrunk, or maybe both. but lets get to the bottom of this matter

dectectives, disperse!

[Editor Rob: link]
tony said on 27/Jun/06
i saw a picture of uma and quentin and both look the same heigh quentin is listed at 6'2 uma was wearing 4 inch heels so that would make her 5'10
Angelica said on 19/Jun/06
Her feet are not big, they are in proportion with the rest of her statuesque body. It would be ridiculous for somebody who's just about 6 feet tall, to wear the same shoe size as somebody who's 5'2.
Ella said on 1/Jun/06
Yeah. She is definetly around 6 feet. I'm 5 feet tall and she was seriously a foot taller then me when I met her. She is beautiful but very. very tall!
dmeyer said on 28/May/06
she is closer to 6 feet like 5'11.75"
Aims said on 19/May/06
Yeah I heard she is very insecure about her height. :(
Anonymous said on 13/Mar/06
In one movie with Robert De Niro she diidn't appear to tower over him. She wasn't wearing big heeels. Both were barefoot in one scene and she was 1 or max 2 inches taller than he was.since robert de niro is 5'9,she shouldn't be taller than 5'11. But also the height comparisons in Kill Bill,Pulp Fiction are sensible. I come to the point that he was taller than 5'9 once in time but now maybe 5'8 or 5'9.
pretcico said on 9/Mar/06
The average British woman is just under 5'4", average man 5'9" (Click Here) The average height of a Japanese woman is 5'! Strange but true. I am the same height as Uma, not a giant by any means, and I very, very rarely meet a woman the same height/taller than me.
No_name said on 26/Feb/06
5' 4" is average only in japan/china/phillipines/pygm etc,sorry
Height Detective said on 17/Feb/06
I was not particularly bright, I wasn't very athletic, I was a little too tall, odd, funny looking, I was just really weird as a kid.
Uma Thurman
TNTinCA said on 13/Feb/06
In the scene in Kill Bill 2 when she is fighthing Daryl Hannah, Uma is barefoot and Daryl is in 2 inch heels and they are practically eye to eye. So I can easily see close to 6 foot for Uma.
Also, in Pulp Fiction when Travolta and Thurman are dancing on stage, she didn't look more than a half inch shorter than him when she was barefoot and he was in socks.
Becky said on 28/Jan/06
WHOA! Uma Thurman is an amazonian goddess but i think she's taller than a lot of women including a lot of short men especially me because i think i'm not too tall and too short either i think i'm about regular height like most women i mean 5'4" is pretty average for depending how old a woman is!
leslie said on 14/Jan/06
I think uma's at the point in her career that she does'nt have to lie about her height.It's obvious the height she is has'nt prevented her from getting roles

[Editor Rob: I agree she is a-list enough that it doesn't matter. Some actresses do round down...I know a few in reality who would admit they've done it in the past...]
Mario said on 11/Jan/06
Funny that all Uma boyfriends look taller than Ussual.
Both Oldman and De Niro looked taller than before, and when they broked, they suddenly shrinked!

[Editor Rob: yeah, places like Richlee aren't churning out thousands of elevator shoes for nothing...people do wear em, some celebrities probably moreso than we imagine. Image is everything]
TheMan said on 30/Dec/05
I read somewhere shes 5,11 don't know for sure though seems tall though.

[Editor Rob: she's said just over 5ft 11. Whether like many actresses around 6ft they don't want to admit being 6ft is another question.]
Anonymous said on 29/Dec/05
"i think that uma is 1.82 .cuz luci liu is 1.60. she looks 10 or 12 cm over luci"

Luis, sorry to break this to you like this, but the difference between 1.82 and 1.60 is 22cm, not 12!
Height Tracker said on 24/Dec/05
I saw her on the Howard Stern show, and she told Howard that she was a little over 5'11" tall. This would make her probably about 181 or 182 cm, not quite 6 ft. Still exceptionally tall for a woman though, especially in Hollywood.
Violetta said on 6/Dec/05
Uma Thurman must be 184-185...That is what she looks in the moovies. I remember her shoes in Pulp Fiction (she takes them off before dancing)- such gold shoes without any heels at all!
luis gonzalez said on 5/Dec/05

after watching kill bill i think she is a full 6 feet anyway i met her on be cool set she was around 6'4" with 4" shoes

"who is taller uma thurman or saffron burrows?"

If I were to venture a guess I would say that uma is 5'11.5"-6' adn saffron as 6'-6'.5"
kampioen said on 3/Nov/05
It is true that Uma has very big feet:a US woman size 11 (European size 43); if you look at her hands you understand why.
Ferreira said on 1/Nov/05
Is true that Uma has got very big feet?
Mike said on 27/Oct/05
who is taller uma thurman or saffron burrows?
Anonymous said on 15/Oct/05
yeah i reckon she is 5ft11 or 6ft tall definitely not 5ft10. u can just tell in her movies shes got a very long body and long legs gangly. would u say shed be a good model?
Anonymous said on 14/Oct/05
Damn, she's tall, even for a man!
tom said on 13/Oct/05
I am sure that Uma must be 178 or 179 at the most. She may look taller because she is thin
CelebHeights Editor said on 3/Oct/05
Yes, I'd forgotten to change this 182cm height. She does look a legit 6ft.
MHouillon said on 3/Oct/05
Uma is simply 6 ft, Nicole Kidman is 5'10.

Mr. J said on 23/Jul/05
I must add that in Kill Bill 2, Daryl is about
1/2" to 1" taller than Uma with heels (look close, daryl is leaning forward).
So if Daryl is 5'10" i would say close to 6'.
Some European sights says she is 182 cm (thats 5'11 and 3/4")
JohnG. said on 27/Jun/05
Ya in "Kill Bill Vol. 2" When Uma and Daryl are fighting in the trailer, Uma is wearing NO SHOES walking barefoot in the desert in one scene. Daryl is wearing 3 inche hills to match Uma's height exactly when they battle it out in the trailer you could see her shoes when she is trying to kick her and when she is standing with the sword. So Uma stands at 6" feet tall and Daryl at 5'9".
Former Neighbor said on 14/Jun/05
She is very tall in person, close to 6 feet, I would say.
Michele said on 2/Jun/05
This pic is not the best but it helps. Both Uma and Nicole are very tall, but you cannot say who is taller.
Mr. X said on 26/Apr/05
I remember going through a book called Vanity Fair's Hollywood, and in it there was a photo cover taken back in the 90's. Thurman was on the cover with other women and the good part was that you see everyone from head to toe. So you could tell if someone has big shoes, or if someone is standing back more. And if anyone believes that Nicole Kidman can't be 5'11", that cover proves it because Thurman was right next to Kidman and was standing tall above her and everyone else. Kidman did kind of had a hip tilt on that cover, but Thurman was like 3 inches taller than her.
Schneider said on 27/Mar/05
Uma must be 5'11 at the most. She may look taller than that because she is thin. Also, Daryl Hannah must then be 5'9 at the most because she had to wear huge three inch heels to stand against Uma in Kill Bill.
Tommy said on 2/Mar/05
That's a very accurate height. She's a very tall woman in real life.
