Alanis Morissette's Height
5ft 4 (162.6 cm)
Canadian Rocker. She said in one of those fan chats, "5ft 4 1/2...I think"
I'm 5ft 4in but people expect me to be taller. I can understand that because I look at photos of myself on stage and I think, 'Jesus Christ, I look 6ft 7in!'

Alanis Morissette looked "tiny" in 'Dogma' (1999). She also looked like she was barely 5 feet tall next to her fellow teens in the 1980s series 'You Can't Do that on Television' on Nickelodeon.

But she says "I'm short but I'm healthy" in one of her songs! 5ft 4in is average for a woman

She sure only looks 5'4. It doesn't surprise me she's a total jerk. Her spirtual quests seemed contrived to me much like the topic of conversations in her interviews. What a total bore. Her deep speaking voice kills it for me.

she use to be nasty.heard she still hasnt lightened up completely.i had alot of problems with her.you have to meet a celebrity more than once to judge.i saw a small crowd of people curse her out.as with any nasty celeb,they go through a nice phase.

she's like 5'4''..maybe a little bit smaller..161-163 seems right..

I always thought she was taller, around 5'6". Maybe her long hair always gave that illusion!

This pic here me think she has been giving herself an inch and half more than her actual height:

5' 6" to me. Head gets screwed up with her personal life then it gets jacked into her songs like a few years back. She's been Avril'd and Kelly'd to the 90's. Has to bring it on hard.

well...if she come up to Ryan Reynold´s sholder then she´s a solid 20 cm smaller than him and that would make her 5'6'' (168 cm) because he´s 6'2'' (188 cm). so...doesn´t matter....she has to hurry up in music business......her last single was released two years before..she has to make a new album..=)

she only comes up to ryan reynold's shoulder, and he's 6'2", i'd say 5'4", 5'5" maybe tops . . even though they're not together anymore haha

i dont have one.like i saidn she was a kunt.i hope she reads this too.was one even in 2001.i hear she poses now.
Kathryn said on 4/Apr/07
well....put a photo on this site, Glenn, then we can all guess or judge her right height...ithink she´s 5'5'' (165 cm)....well.. let´s see...=)
glenn said on 4/Apr/07
i met her during her fame many times.a kunt.an enigma too.first time shes was 5-4 gothic looking in heels,petite.a year later she was 5-6,stocky,dressed sloppy and wore converse.
Kathryn said on 3/Apr/07
well...5'6'' is better i think, maybe 5'5''. but 5'6'', thats more obvious because she isnt that small. e.g. in Germany she said in an interview that she´s exactly average height in Germany. and thats 5'6'' (168 cm)..so try to meet her, Glenn, =).

Z2: Yes I suppose average is 5'4.5. In Canada it's 5'5" But most people I know who are 5'4" DO consider themselves short. There's a well known Petite store where I live and on the window it says "For women 5'4" and under"
Also when most people describe someone who's say... 5'6" They'll call them "average height". I think the average height includes the elderly in the stats because they tend to be quite a bit shorter than regular adults.

She was an enigma to me once.she looked 5-4 in boots,and 5-6 in sneakers.I couldnt figure it out.

Hey Rob, she's on Madonna's record label. Maybe she stood next to Madonna, and they were the same height, so she just said what she said. Madonna has claimed 5'4.5 herself. But, we know she's not that. LOL

Now alanis is my girl, but that picture isn't adding up. If alanis is 5'4, and in flats, that would put her at 5'5. But, since tori is closer to the camera, leave it off. tori amos looks about 2 inches taller, so that's 5'6. That mean tori would have to be increasing her height by 4 inches. That seems easy to do, but it's not. 4 inch heels do not give you 4 inches of true height because there's a slope from the heel to the toe. only platforms give you true height. Also, look at the length of tori's torso. It just naturally looks longer. Alanis isn't 5'4.

If she is 5'4" than how come she appears to be about 3 inches shorter than 5'2" Tori Amos here?
[Editor Rob: could be as simple as tori being a little closer to camera and in heels vs other in flats??? Maybe or maybe not, hard to say]

In one of Alanis Morisettes songs, she is heard that she thinks she is short. The average height for women is 5'4" and that is "average." So that got me to thinking that Alanis is under the average, hence her song stating she's short. I think 5'3" is her real height as she does look it.
