How tall is Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan's Height

5ft 4 (162.6 cm)

American actress, best known for playing Willow on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lily on How I Met Your Mother and Michelle in the American Pie films. On her twitter page - in response to somebody mentioning her as being 5ft 6 - she said "I'm 5'4 actually. Jason 6'4!". In these photos I was wearing near 1in Nike, whilst Alyson had a 1.3 inch boot in the single shot and near 0.7 inch Converse sneakers in the double shot.

Alyson popped up as the answer to a question on a quiz the other day! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

She is 5'4 out of bed and probably walking around at 5'3.5-5'3.7.

Many women of 5ft4 feel cheated in height unless they’re wearing high heels. I suppose it’s going to depend on the size of the people in your area. I’ve mentioned this before but I’ll do so again: there was a quiz presenter in the noughties who went on and on about how TINYπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ she is so much so that it became boring! When I found out that she was 5ft4, I said to my bloke, that’s not TINY, just a bit below average and he said that it’s fairly small, but he used to go out with a 6-footer.

Yes, it’s completely relative to what you’re used to and stuff the statistics! Shop displays base their popular items on average heights in their area.

I would say a weak 5'4 in both the pics (accounting for the footwear swing of each).

One of those temp tattoos.

πŸŽ‚πŸŽπŸŽˆ Happy Birthday Alyson! πŸŽˆπŸŽπŸŽ‚

It's just a flash in the pan ago that I was watching Alyson as a young girl in 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'! Today she turns 45 - but still young, and not old enough to have lost any height yet, and for quite some time to come.

Happy Birthday Alyson! 🍻

She is 5'4", I seen her on an episode of That 70's Show where she looked about as tall as Mila Kunis. She is roughly a whole foot shorter than Jason Segel in HIMYM. Alyson is five FOOT FOUR!
Nik said on 11/Nov/18
She is average in height!
Nik said on 2/Sep/18
Jason is very tall!
Truthteller24 said on 2/Aug/18
I would say just under 5'4 my coworker claims 5'5 and she is probably 5'3.75 because I am 5'9.5 and she's well under my eyeline which is just over 5'5
lee168cm said on 23/Jul/18
She is one of my faves from Buffy. This listing sounds right although in an episode of the show she looked exactly the same height as Seth green. Though I guess he could of had thicker footware
Nik said on 8/Jul/18
This listing isn't impossible but it is more likely that Alyson is below 5'4" rather than above it!
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Jul/18
I haven't seen this picture before, Rob; someone I know would be mighty jealous!

Alyson can have 5ft4, the only height I have ever known for her.
Editor Rob
Jenny was meant to get this the last minute I ended up getting it, I'm not complaining but Jenny is an absolute buffy fan.
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 26/Jun/18
Looks accurate if she almost had half-inch more footwear (although I can't tell if Rob is tilting his head a bit or not).
Reuben said on 29/Jun/17
Rob, I hear that she is going to be at the London Film and Comic Con this year! To be honest though, it seems very rare for sitcom actors/actresses to attend these types of events. But it's primarily for her role as Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Editor Rob
I think if she goes, I will get Jenny to meet her instead of me.

She is a massive Buffy fan.
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jan/17
This little redhead was far and away my favourite of Buffy's mates! I remember when the group of friends were making good their escape in a very comfortable and homely-looking van and all Willow could say as they sped off into the night was "mind the horsies!" I thought that was smashing! 🐎🐎🚘🐎🐎 😍

Alyson wasn't noticeably taller than Sarah, so I feel 5ft4 to be a good shout!
Alex 164cm 5'4 feet said on 14/Jul/16
She said she's 5'4 but why does google claim shes 5'5.75
Editor Rob
I doubt they care about height, it's just a bit of trivia and keeps visitors on their engine...accuracy plays no role really.

I'm trying to earn a living, but also spending many hours a day working only on this site...
Lorne??? said on 20/Apr/15
Well this certainly makes more sense with Alexis, as she can certainly look over a foot shorter. Still, she could be strong 5'4 range, 5ft4.25.

Really there is no way to continue justifying Amber Benson at 5'4, now that Hannigan is down to 5'4 flat.
SaveUsY2J said on 8/Jul/14
@height: Yeah, because a 5'3.5 person looks so different from a 5'4-5'4.5 person next to someone who is 6'4.... she isn't under 5'4, Amber Benson is somewhere 5'3-5'3.5 range and was an inch shorter than her.
height said on 19/Jan/14
i think she is a flat 5"3.5 she is totaly towerd by marshall (segel) who is 6"4. iknow people who are that tall but she just looks shorter than 164
HomeBoy said on 11/Oct/13
She's less than an inch taller than Seth Green.
Bakura said on 17/Aug/13
@Mark- Manganiello is 6'5.
Mark said on 15/Apr/13
Rob here she looks a bit more than a foot shorter than 6'4" Joe Manganiello.I think you should downgrade her.

Caroline barney 178cm? Is ted taller than barney. I would still say he is 6 foot. 163cm for lily.
Len said on 19/Aug/12
Rob nailed it. And I'm so happy she found a great show to be on after Buffy... she really deserves it, sweet and talented gal.
Caroline said on 14/Jun/11
My mom is best friends with Pam Fryman, and knows Alyson Hannigan pretty well, and she says that Alyson is about 5Β΄4", perhaps she could need a slight downgrade. Anyways, we got to meet up with the cast last summer, and we hung out at the beach, and everyone was barefoot. I am 5Β΄8" and my mom is 5Β΄9". I was 1" taller than Cobie Smulders, which makes her around 5Β΄7". Neil Patrick Harris had about 2" on me, and Josh Radnor had 2.5". Jason Segel is as tall as his listing here, 6Β΄4". NPH also admitted that they, especially him, are using various lifts and build-ups inside their shoes to make the height difference seem smaller.
So, NPH (5Β΄10"), Radnor (5Β΄10.5") and Smulders (5Β΄7") should all be downgraded.
Wish I had some pictures to back this up, but the only ones iΒ΄ve got, we are all sitting down.

She is 5'4"- on How I Met Your Mother, Marshall is said to be 6'4", and he has at least 9 inches on her when she's wearing heels. When she isn't, he's about a foot taller than her.
Stephanie said on 26/Mar/11
I always thought she was 5' 4".
Jayjay said on 26/Dec/10
Sara: Cobie Smulders is 5'8", Alyson H is barely as tall as her in heels, so no, she is no enere close to 5'7" or 5'8". Alyson hannigan is tiny, 5'3.5-5'4" max!
josh said on 5/May/09
i think she is 5-3 because i saw her next to tara reid in american pie 2 and she also is listed 164cm she was taller than her
josh said on 1/May/09
at the end of american pie 2 when he is dancing with jason biggs and she was like 4 feet away from tara reid and she is also listed 5ft4.5 here and she was taller than her so im thinking she is like 5'3
anonymous said on 24/Nov/08
5 foot 4 next to jason segel.
Marllon said on 21/Nov/08
She's 5'4", 5'5" tops, but I definitely believe her being 5'4" over 5'5". On Buffy, she looked no more than two inches taller than 5'2
Becky said on 3/Oct/08
i personally think that Alyson is 5'5", 5'6" because of how skinny her body looks and if you are average height and you have a slim frame you tend to look taller in person than you do on camera that's the thing!
myspace celebrity said on 17/Sep/07
i agree with 5'4.5. this is much more believeable next to 5'6 sophie monk
Kathryn said on 19/May/07
sheΒ΄s 5'5'', sheΒ΄s not that tall but not that small either. like someone said before in first season of Buffy, Sarah always wears shoes with 2 inch heels and Alyson trainers. and alyson is still slightly taller than her, about 0.5-1 inch. so sheΒ΄s 5'5'', change her height to it, Rob, u can trust me, hihi.=)
marissa said on 18/Sep/06
she is 5'3.5" met her.
AKK said on 1/Sep/06
Well, I just saw her on Ellen's show(Date Movie interview). If we're going with Ellen at 5 foot 7 and half, Aly Hanni was about 3 inches shorter while barefoot(Ellen had her usual inch-high trainers), so she's probably just about 5'5 even.
sara said on 24/Aug/06
no, i know for a fact she is 5'7 or 5'8, she is tall, even without heels

She sometimes look taller than 5'4.5.

She's 5'4.5 at first season Buffy wear small heel about 2inch and she was same height like Willow. Willow wear a trainers 1inch tall.
gyllenhaalic823 said on 16/Jan/06
alright, just curious, she's 114 pounds and 5'6" according to a website, but seriously, thats practically bone and skin. so maybe it's more like a half inch shorter or something or the weight is more??
Anonymous said on 23/Dec/05
no WAY! In the prom episode she looks taller.
chicklet said on 10/Nov/05
I agree with the second Anonymous. Sarah is 5'3 and Alyson looks close in height so 5'4 or 5'4.5 seems about right.
CelebHeights Editor said on 22/Aug/05
In a fan interview with fellow Buffy co-star Amber Benson, "She’s just a smidgen taller than me, just a smidgen. I mean we’re like both the same height. But she’s just got that little bit. Maybe because she’s smaller than me she might look taller".

Amber (said she's 5ft 4, but I think is a tad close to 5ft 4.5). Alyson maybe is like Jennifer 'I'm 5ft 4 and 3/4' Aniston.
Anonymous said on 23/Jun/05
Alyson is around 5'6 because on Buffy she always seems to be a least 3 inches taller than Sarah who is 5'2. Also, she seems to be close in height to Michelle who is 5'7.
Anonymous said on 9/Jun/05
Alyson's always looked to be around the same height as Sarah Michelle Geller when stood next to her. Sarah is 5'3" so I think Alyson's closer to 5'4 than 5'6.
