5'7.5" or even 5'7", 5'9" and 5'10" are impossible figures for this girl unless you are talking with heels

she looks around this height, maybe a half inch shorter, 5'7. good height for a girl. It's also awfully sad what has happened to her. Hope she gets help.

Shes crazy now so her listing should be changed to 5'8 now maybe that will make her feel better

she's hot! looks 5'7 to me.
Mel said on 9/Nov/12
I highly doubt she's 5'9. I'm 5'9 and I have really long limbs. She's probably around 5'8, no taller than 173cm, no shorter than 170cm.

She's listed on her booking sheet at 5'7" 125 lbs.

At sixteen she said she was 5'7.5", she would have grown! She probably closer to 5'9" now, maybe right on it!
clint said on 8/Jan/12
luna, i know what i'm talking about. Yes, she is usually wearing heels when she towers over men. but i know she is taller than 5'7". she's close to 5'9" at a minimum. I know when I'm pretty much right about someone's height. I'm not here to debate. If I say it's so, then it's so. I'm not here to converse with you, and I don't want you making your stupid responses to my posts. Do not communicate with me. Got it?
luna said on 28/Dec/11
i've seen her in several movies and 5 ft 7 sounds right...clint, the majority of women are a little shorter than 5 ft 7.5(the height she is listed at), that's why she may almost always be taller than other women...besides, she'd have to be taller than 5 ft 9.5 to tower over a lot of people (like 5 ft 11 at least)...if she does, it's because she is often wearing massive heels...
clint said on 16/Dec/11
Listed at 5'9.5" in a 2010 edition of Maxim magazine. I tend to believe it based on photos. She towers over a lot of people and is almost always taller than other women.

shes so beautiful she looks tall she must be like 5ft 8 5ft 7

5-9 now. I loved her dis on frankie muniz height! Us short guys deserve no respect from tall girls.
Aellai said on 12/Jul/11
To me, to be honest. She only looks about 5'9" or so in heels. And my stepmom is 5'8". never wears heels. So I know what 5'8" all the sites claim she is, looks like. That said, she seems to be about 5'6"
Faris123 said on 2/Jul/11
@Laura. Well, 6'1" is quite tall no matter how u look at it (except in the Netherlands perhaps?) but it's by no means a bad thing at all. More like an advantage really. I'd imagine the US would have girls and boys as tall as you or taller since it's a huge country but depending on where u go there you may see more or less. Of course they won't be as much as people shorter than you. So just be yourself and walk confidently . . . I doubt your height will be an issue there (people there have seen everything lol). So U are more likely to stand out because of something else like beauty or being athletic rather than height alone
Laura said on 13/Jun/11
I'm a Dutch 15 year old girl and I'm almost 6'1, well something like that.
Is that really really tall?
I would like to go to America for a year, are there also tall girls? and boys?
I just don't want to stand out, you know what I mean?
Is there anyone who can give me any advice?
lol.. said on 6/Jun/11
@katie well first of all you're old for 7th grade. my eighth grade year just finished up (though I think I got held back because of medical reasons blah blah blah but I'm going to try to graduate high school a year early) and I turned 13 right before the second semester in 8th grade, but I was 5'5 when I turned 13, so you are in no way long and lanky and I know that for a fact because I'm not even long and lanky and I'm 5'6 and 13 1/2 now. People in your school just must be short because when I was in 7th grade there were multiple people that were 5'8, some 5'6, others shorter then that but there were a lot of people over 5'1. and 5'1 is petite, and the lowest height to considered 'average' at 13. And you shouldn't worry about the guy's height, they're just short right now because they haven't hot puberty, in around 10th grade they'll shoot over you like a tower.
Anonymous said on 7/Jul/09
i think 5'7.5 is right, more like 5'8" but not more than that!!! 5'9"1/2 is really tall!
Nat said on 12/Jun/09
Karl, your probably exaggerating and are like 5'9 not 5'11...amanda is 5'7 end of story
Realme2008 said on 24/May/09
5'10" is way out of the question. She's not close to that unless in heels, and I think she looks 5'7"-5'7.5 max. That isn't huge at all unless you are very short.
Justine said on 10/May/09

Huge is more like 6'-6'1 maybe you're just really short!

she barely looks 5'7....forget 5'10,that would make her look like taylor swift.

quote from miko's (singer) myspace blog: "I went to Perez Hilton's birthday party at the Viper Room... It was awesome... I saw many Hollywooders there, but all in all it was a great time. Did I mention that Amanda Bynes is HUGE (Tall)! She knocked me in the face with her purse... Only one other person has done that and it was Venus Williams..."
i think 5ft 7.5 is not what anyone would consider HUGE...
i think she might be 5'10
Maribel said on 26/Mar/09
I think she is 5 foot 8.

Hazel - but she was leaning a little bit. Click Here
I with Bosco, yeah she's at least 5'8, probably more like 5'8 1/2-5'9 but she isn't under 5'8!
Bosco said on 16/Feb/09
You can't go by movies they adjust the angles so no one towers over anyone else. I'd say she's at least 5' 8" and could easily be the 5' 91/2" that is sometimes claimed.
said on 11/Feb/09
Comparing with 5'2.5" brittany snow, she doesnt look 5'8" to me. Perhaps the footwears are about the same Click Here

jennie garth is wearing high heels in that pic. look at the angle of her foot

That sounds about right. Amanda Bynes is quite tall. I met her when I was about 12. She was about 2.5 inches shorter than my 5'11" Dad.
Jim said on 13/Jan/09
This girl is definetely on the tall side. In big heels, she's near the 6' mark.
Akshay said on 29/Dec/08
I dont think she's as tall as she claims. I mean look at her in the movie sydney white. She does look tall but in some scenes her claimed height does not stand. Compare her height with sara paxton and she's just an inch taller. Compared to crystal hunt she's like 3" taller than her.So she is more towards 5-7 than 5-8 and hence Rob has her on 5-7.5 which is accurate.
meisje said on 15/Dec/08
she must be tall, look at her in movies like sydney white. She's probably 5ft9 or something
Karl said on 13/Nov/08
Ran into her last night in Barney's in NYC. She's certainly tall. I'd figure 5'8" - 5'9" based on me being 5'11".

I'd say 5'7 too people but a half over is only 1 cm so I think that the height she is listed is perfect,

On what i like about you she didnt look that tall.But she usually looks at least 5'7.5

She likes to wear heels, but still she can't be any taller than 170cm.

Shes 5'7 at the least I'd say.

she looks tall on t.v. and i read in life and style magazine that she was 5'8' & @ any age thats kinda tall 4 a girl.I'm a 14 year old girl whose 5'6', & acording 2 my doctor i got all my height @ once and won't grow any taller.
cessygirl said on 16/Jun/08
well, if she is 5'8, she's totally my role model, cuz i'm that height, and lettme tell you, it SUCKS. cuz i am only 13. i think she is that height cuz she said in a "dolly' and 'girlfriend' and 'seventeen' interview that she was always picked on for being tall. i no her prob.. lol. :) YAY AMANDA!

Kenza said on 1/Jun/08
she looks like she's 5'8
Linds said on 31/May/08
If you watch 'What I Like About You' you can see she went through a huge growth spurt. In the beginning she is obviously shorter than Jennie Garth (listed as 5'5") by the end of the first season Amanda and Jennie and almost the same height. By the end of the series Amanda is clearly taller than Jennie even when Garth is in heels and she has flats. Iv'e seen her listed anywhere from 5'6 to 5'10! Looking at hairspray and comparing her to zac efron, she cant be much over her listed height here. It never made sense; if zac efron was much over 5'7" he would tower over vanessa in the hsm photos. (My sister is vanessa's height and in 4 inch heels I still have a good inch on her (I'm 5'6") surprisingly Vanessa and Zac are within a couple of inches of eachother when she wears heels. I think Amanda's listed height is pretty acurate!! =]
haha sorry if i got off topic
Leah said on 10/May/08
Shes 5'8 because i'm 6'1 and i was a good 3 inches taller than her in flats when she had on about 2 or 3 inch heels 5'7 5'8 tops
M.P. said on 7/May/08
I remember she certainly had a MAJOR growth spurt. Back when she was a kid on Nickelodeon, she was like 4'11". Then, in like a year, she grew like nine inches. She certainly LOOKs very tall for her small frame.
violet said on 3/May/08
5"7 sounds right
and 5"9 is not the tall height i think they mean
it's more towards the 5"10 and 6"0 mark
im 5"11 and let me tell u it sux
C. said on 29/Apr/08
She's definitely not 5'9" or 5'10". I don't know where these claims are coming from. If she was that tall, she'd be on par with some of the men in "She's The Man", not to mention Channing Tatum towers over her. She's 5'7" max. Heck, I could even see her as low as 5'6 1/2".
Nikolas1115 said on 27/Apr/08
I think Amanda probably is 5'7 but not more!!! see Tv-show What i like about you,
jenny gart- (5'5) specifically not below!

she looks 5" 9 and it actually says it on her official website.

a 20 year old girl won't grow any taller. i think the max age for growth is 18 for girls. she looks 5'6''-5'7''-ish, not any taller..honestly!
brother_h said on 2/Apr/08
at 20 yeas old she cant get any taller, at 16 she mustve stopped.
i said before and ill say it again, she is 5'7 an wears uber heels
5'9,5 said on 15/Mar/08
im a girl. and im 5'9. in some ways its better to be taller but in others its crap. but for people that say 5'8 - t pas 6foot women are masulin what are you chatting? why do you think agencies want models to be tall. they think that the taller girl is the more modern. when i msure amandas height to mine its only a couple of inces difference of the red carapet i dont think id tower over her ^o)
k said on 10/Mar/08
in hairspray she was even taller than that guy she was with who looked about average size. i'd say she's at least 5'8 maybe more
sunshine said on 24/Feb/08
ooh no :( I can't imagine it...I am 1,68..I am taller than her too?....i don't think so:p...and in a page I saw that Amanda is 1,77...i cannot belive it!...and zack in that photo isn't taller than 1,70..or 1,68.....oh yea...vanessa is short???
Stephanie said on 22/Feb/08
Linds, Amanda is leaning in that pic. Amanda is not 5' 10" she is closer to 5' 8". I.M.Db is full of crap. She is not 5' 9.5".
diana said on 22/Jan/08
no wonder i thought she was 5'10
she looks like she's wearing point shoes
probably about 5'7 but that also a good height
that explains why didn't look why she was shorter than every guy in she's the man
Athena said on 15/Jan/08
I'd say that Amanda Bynes is about 5'7". She tends to wear heels that are way too high. I think she stands at about 5'6 and in heels she stands 5'10".
C. said on 10/Jan/08
The thing about Amanda is that she does tend to wear very high heels. And nonetheless, she tends to look quite 'short' sometimes (not actually short, but not the 5'8" she claims) in films. Maybe 5'7"? But it's kind of hard because of her heels which are very misleading.
Alex said on 8/Jan/08
I saw a magazine where they described her at being 5'10. Maybe she grew a bit more. She looks a full 5'8 to me now but can appear taller with her her lean frame and long legs.
john said on 7/Jan/08
dudes look @ the size of her heels they are at least 8 cm...at the least, i reckon probably 10 - 12 cm and take into account the sole of her heels which arent much but they contribute aswell
tall girl 208 said on 5/Jan/08
thanks for saying that 5.8" is "4 inches taller than the average woman that makes me feel alot better only been 15 and 6 foot tall no jokes
Realme2007 said on 27/Dec/07
Also Amanda Bynes really isn't really that tall like you guys are saying. She is close to 5'8" I believe. Let's see if you are a girl who is almost 5'8" (4 inches taller than the average woman.), and almost always wearing high heels then of course you are going to appear tall! That's a no-brainer. lol.
Realme2007 said on 27/Dec/07
Mr.Boston 2, so there are no short men? I'm confused. She did appear shorter than most of the males if you actually pay attention. Most males are actually 5'9"-5'10" on average now.
Mr.Boston2 said on 25/Dec/07
She must be atleast 5'8 cause in Shes the man, she was able to look like a dude.
HaydenC fan said on 24/Dec/07
She's like 5'9" because in Hairspray she literally towered her co-stars...even Elijah (yes, go see pics).
I think she was kinda too tall to play Penny, because Kerry is 5'2.5" and Alexa (most recent Penny) is 5'1"... while she's about 5'7-5'9.
bob said on 22/Dec/07
id say amanda is probably over 5"9 when looking at your guyses pictres of her and Zac together. I think she is amazingly beautiful and very tall. :) love u amanda!!!!
Hani said on 20/Nov/07
Amanda Bynes was on the tonight show some days ago,she had big heels on and was noticably shorter than leno about 2_3 inches.
i say 5'6.
Shannon said on 10/Nov/07
Amanda Bynes is not any shorter than like 5'8'' I saw her once, not that long ago, and she was shorter than me, but deffinatly not by much, and she wasnt wearing heals, im 5'11''. so im guess shes around 5'9''. she is NOT 5'4'' or whatever some people are saying, she is deffinatly taller than the average person.
:D said on 9/Nov/07
Hastae : But that pic on Vanessa and zac is fake, they have done Vanessa taller or Zac shorter cause in the movie (HSM 2) He is much taller than Vanessa.
And that pic at Amanda and Zac: Amanda has 10cm high heels and he is 2cm shorter than her there (if he would stand up straigt) and he is 179cm.
Billy said on 29/Oct/07
Amanda is nowhere near 5 ft 8...seriously. Have you people seen her in anything lately? Most of her male costars tower over her, and her female costars are mostly a few inches taller than her. This would not happen if she were 5 ft 8...5 ft 3 would be much more accurate, and there is no way she is over 5 ft 4.
brother_h said on 3/Oct/07
i originally searched for josh peck to see if he's grown since last year. last year i saw him at 5'10. an they still say 6'1.
and amanda bynes, i agree with 5'7. and zac efron is 5'6. the whole cast of HM(ew homework) were under 5'6. they always lie
Hollie said on 27/Sep/07
I read in some magazine (can't remember which one) that she claimed she was 5'9.5". This seems about accurate to me.
ras said on 3/Sep/07
Hastae, on the third photo, as Rob said it's a "[Editor Rob: digitally altered photo, not real life.]".
said on 15/Aug/07Click Here
See that pics ? So Zac is about 1,68 (or less) he said he is 1,73 but he is not (look to the photo with Vanessa from HSM 2 - he in only inch higher Click Here
So in this way we see Amanda is about 2 inches higher than Zack? 2 or 3 but as we see she has a heals about 7 cm ? i guess it is.
To sum up she is about 1,70 m.
WHat u think ?
grace said on 14/Aug/07
she's tall and well proportioned. i saw her and she was wearing a cap and flats and she definately looked near 5'7" 5'8" range... i feel like this is a typical height for a medium tall girl and there's no reason to doubt her. she has very long legs too
allie said on 28/Jul/07
i recently saw her, and i got right up close to her, and me being 5'7 amd a quarter, she was right about on my level, maybe a few centimeteres taller. no no shorter, and also may i add she was wearing flip flops.
Susan said on 26/Jul/07
I saw her too, and I was amazed by how tall she was. In her movies, they make her out to look smaller I guess... maybe putting her next to tall guys... and then they look short :) But I was surprised, she was overall a bigger person than I had always thought... muscular thighs, bigger face, and VERY tall.
jmt said on 16/Jul/07
i see all of these listings for her now as 5'9 and a half so what is she?
Stephanie said on 14/Jul/07
Amanda is 5' 7" or 5' 8". She gave her own height as 5' 8" several times (after the 'almost 5' 8"' comment when she was 16), so I'm guessing that is about right.
urmooma. said on 9/Jul/07
NO amanda bynes is not 5 ft 7.5 in.
i saw her once and she was taller then me.i'm 5'8 so she was probably 5'10 and
no she was not wearing heals.
Alex said on 30/Jun/07
5'7 would be the very minimum. I think 5'7.5-5'7.75 is probably most accurate.
Josh said on 12/Jun/07
shes 5'7 for sure , 6'0 John travolta towered over her in 2 inch heels .
Crissy said on 7/Jun/07
I think she is 5'6 or 5'7 because compared to Nick Zano (who's like 6'2 or something) she was significantly shorter than him. So that height sounds accurate.
Alex said on 7/Jun/07
She could be as short as 5'7 but no less than that. If you look at her you can tell she's 5'7-5'8.
Anonymous said on 4/Jun/07
I still think she's a flat 5'7. She's shorter than Wilmer Valderrama (maybe is slouching, but I can't see her as tall as 5'7.5 if she's wearing heels) and Alex Breckenridge, who is 5'7, why adding half an inch?
jenn said on 19/May/07
no way is she 5'9..i was on vacation a few weeks ago and happened to see her at an upscale hotel, and she was about exactly my height or a tad taller (im 5'7.5)she is slim in person which just makes her look taller
me said on 14/May/07
LET ME ASSURE YOU GUYS THAT SHE HAS TO BE ABOVE 5'8...SHE CAME IN WITH HER BOYFRIEND (A YOUNG JUDE LAW LOOK-A-LIKE) AND TWO OTHER GIRLS AT A CAFE THAT I USE TO WORK AT. I'M EXACTLY 5'8 AND SHE WAS WEARING HEELS AND TOWERED OVER EVERYBODY. NOw, i know what i look like in heels and i definitely don't look as tall as she did. SHe is really nice...left a 20 dollar tip.
UNK said on 9/May/07
I am sure she is doing the old "knee bend" that taller girls do next to shorter guys... it's not very hard, and quite natural, for girls to adjust their posture to match the men next to them.
lala said on 1/May/07
it says she is 5'9.5 when you google it? what's that about? she may be a weak 5'7
Kathryn said on 24/Apr/07
yes...i am 5'7.5'', too. and i think that´s a real tricky height to find out. because when i have usual shoes on i am 5'8'' or a bit taller. but people sometimes think i am almost 5'7''. i don´t know why but it´s like that. i think because if someone is a tad over 5'7'' and doesn´t stand straight, then he/she looks a bit under 5'7''. so, 5'7.5'' is a very odd height. but well.....amanda is 5'7.5'' definitely. if not she´s 5'8''.

I think Amanda is 5' 8"--my height. Someone argued fiercely awhile ago that she was 5' 6"-ish, but I sometimes look shorter too. Some people think I'm 5' 6" until I stand up right and then they realize I'm taller than that! :)
shah said on 5/Mar/07
yeah I think she height is around 5f 7 or 5f 7.5 inches as she looks so taller when she wears a sandal. maybe it seems like my height as i am 5f 8inches
Bel said on 3/Mar/07
yeah i thought she was taller.. but maybe her slimming look makes her look taller?
bryan said on 28/Feb/07
Really? 5 7.5'...i thought she alot taller than that? hmm weird.
Stephanie said on 5/Feb/07
I'm 5' 8" and skinny and some people say I look 5' 6". My aunt is 5' 6.5" and seriously thought she was taller than I was until we stood back to back. Maybe the low estimates of Amanda's height come from that. Being skinny can make you look tall, but it can also make you look short. I guess it depends on the person.
Drew said on 31/Jan/07
"Ellie says on 25/Jan/07
does being slim make you look taller?!"
That's pretty obvious, isn't it? Of course, if you're really short, you could be the thinnest person in the world and it won't really make difference. At 5'1.5", looking tall is pretty much impossible.
Alex said on 29/Jan/07
Ellie, 5'1.5 90lbs is pretty skinny but if you're natural like that then its ok but if you're anoerexic then its unhealthy. But anyway a lot of people do think if you're slimmer or thinner you look taller but when you're sometimes thicker and more muscular that can make you look taller I think.
Belle said on 27/Jan/07
I live in australia and i have read in a Feb 2005 DOLLY magazine that she is 177 cms tall and weighs 52 kilograms and blames her strange weight loss on a growth spurt.I found that in an article about celebs being very skinny. Althought that was a couple of years ago i really doubt that she would have shrunk.
Ellie said on 25/Jan/07
does being slim make you look taller?! i think its the opposit: i'm 5'1.5" and 90 lbs, and everyone thinks i'm shorter than i am and they say its because i'm skinny!
Brooke said on 11/Jan/07
I live in NY and I love all her movies.. and for the longest time I've been asking myself how tall is she?! but wow.. shes nearly 5'8". I'm guessing she has a thing for much taller guys then. Most girls search for a giant if their some what tall.

definitely 5'7" to 5'8" i live in LA and have seen her. it may be true that 5'7" is more like because she is one of those long looking people but those who are claiming they met her and are 5'7" and were much taller than her, etc. it was either all in your head or you were purposefully trying to compare heights and standing really straight and looking upwards. i think people who meet people and claim they were taller by about an inch etc are inaccurate because most likely they were the only one trying to compare and trying to make themselves as tall as possible.

Are you sure you didn't grow since the last time you were measured? In all her movies and shows, Amanda looks at least 5' 7"... I can see why some sites list her as 5' 8" or 5' 9". She is taller than most women and about 2" taller than Jennie Garth.
Hank said on 4/Jun/06
I met Bynes on the set of "She's The Man". I'm 5'7" in my classic Vans (low top), and she was I bit shorter than me (wearing flats too). I'd say in the 5'5" - 5'6" area.
Alex said on 14/Apr/06
When she said I am almost 5'8 would mean 5'7.5 she most likely is.

Maybe if Frankie stood up straight in that pic he would be closer to 5' 4"? 5' 3.5" could be possible, too, but the people who think he's 5' 2" or less are being silly. I think Amanda is 5' 7".
Kats said on 20/Mar/06
Hi, Amanda. That was not me starting a fight. I just find it really frusterating when people say "so-and-so SAID they were *blank* in height." It doesn't matter if they have done so multiple times. People will consistently lie. And it's not a "fact" that Frankie is 5'4. It's your opinion. But you give me some proof with him next to supposed 5'4 stars, and I'll give it a look. You can post it on his page. Honestly, I don't look at Frankie Muniz very much. Logic has just told me he is probably under, and since I've thought Amanda was closer to 5'6.5, him being under 5'4 went along with that. I don't like to exaggerate his shortness either-I don't exaggerate anyone. I try to be as objective as possible with everyone. By the way, I've never heard anyone say Tom Cruise is 5'1! Haha.
Did anyone catch Amanda and Channing Tatum on Fuse's Daily Download last week? Of course they are in a movie together, but sometimes movies are unrelable because of tricks done. Channing is listed as 6'1, and he does seem really tall. I wasn't paying too much attention, but Amanda looked like she was at his eyes, so that's like 4 1/2-5 inches less. She was in pretty tall heels. If he is 6'2 in shoes, she would have been about 5'9-5'9 1/2 with heels--Unfortunately it's really easy to be off an inch or so. It turns out to be around 5'6.5--5'7 though... (She was taller than both hosts but I don't know their heights. Dylan's a shorty though.)
Amanda said on 19/Mar/06
No need to yell at me or start arguments. I am just stating the fact that Frankie is 5' 4". If you look at him next to 5' 4" women and take the height of their heels, they are the same height. People forget this and think Frankie is shorter, but he's not. They like to exaggerate his shortness... kind of like the people who say Tom Cruise is 5' 1".
Kats said on 13/Mar/06
Amanda, it's been said multiple times on this site, by me and many others that PEOPLE LIE ABOUT THEIR HEIGHT. PEOPLE LIIEE ABOUT THEIR HEIGHT. You think someone as egotistical as Frankie (he is) would say 5'4 if he was REALLY 5'4? Of course he'd bump it up! He's thin, 5'4 can appear more! Thus, I think under 5'4 (5'2 being a low estimate) makes sense for him. The fact that he has said 5'4 multiple times proves nothing... just that he is consistent with his lie. Happens thousands of times. People will find a height they want to give themselves and they stick to it!
By the way, I caught Bynes on Jimmy Kimmel. She wasn't standing long, so I wouldn't think it's too fair to judge her height. She looked about 1 1/2--2 inches shorter than him in heels that made her 2 1/2--3 inches taller. But how tall is he? The standard 6'0 is given for him, but it's been proven otherwise (his page with him standing next to Adam Carolla is a good one). If he is 6'1 with shoes, you can calculate based on my observations that she would be about 5'8, maybe more.
But then... most people are lying by a couple inches and screw up most observations! Oy!
Amanda said on 11/Mar/06
Frankie is 5' 4"-- he has said this many times before. Perhaps the reason he appears shorter than that is because the women who are his height wear heels and tower over him, making him appear only 5' 2".
Kats said on 9/Mar/06
I probably post too much on this page, but oh well... So Cassie what is your conclusion? I think Wilmer is taller than her a little bit in that picture because his forehead is higher. I agree she is slouching though and slightly further back. I don't know his exact height either. And who knows about lifts...
The problem is we usually don't know the exact height of people. Some think Cameron Diaz is less than 5'9. Some think Shia is less than 5'10. And I have noticed some people forget to account for shoes in males... like when people have tried to compare Shia with Amanda, they forget about his shoes. Down below, I remembered to take them into account, but I probably didn't give enough, because I said 1/2 inch, when it is probably more like an inch. The TRL pictures with them confuse me anyways, because sometimes she is taller than him in pictures, and sometimes she is shorter...
Btw, I've thought Frankie is more like 5'2. Amanda towers over him though.
rip said on 8/Mar/06
In some photos in Big Fat Liar, Frankie Muniz is just reaching Amanda's chin. I do not know whether Frankie is 5'2'' rathere than 5'5'' or Amanda is 5'10'' or something.
Amanda said on 7/Mar/06
I was looking at pictures of Amanda next to Cameron Diaz, who is 5' 9", and Amanda was an inch and a half to two inches shorter. I couldn't see the shoes, though. =(
When trying to figure out the height of Bynes next to Shia, take into account that Shia is not barefoot! His shoes have about one inch soles. Amanda's are three inches, so that means Amanda looks two inches taller than she is. She looks as tall as Shia, who is 5' 10"- 2" = 5' 8". If Shia is 5' 9" (which is the lower estimate), Amanda is 5' 7". She is definitely taller than 5' 5" or 5' 6".
Mandy said on 24/Feb/06
Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan have the exact same height difference between them as do the 5' 8" Glenn and Lindsay. If Glenn is 5' 8" like he says then so is Amanda. I do agree that Amanda has been wearing heels more often as of late. She used to hardly ever wear heels but not anymore.
As far as Jennie's height goes, she never actually SAID how tall she was! People just use 5' 5" because IMDb has 5' 5". And IMDb used to have Jennie at 5' 3", so they don't know how tall she is. It's just a pointless guessing game.
Kats said on 12/Feb/06
I'll still need more proof to ever believe she is 5'7 1/2 or more. She is probably only 5'6 (as I've guessed before) if Jennie is less than 5'5 and rounding up. If Jennie's a legitimate 5'5, I'll give Amanda a 5'6 1/2. I've given her 5'7 at the most in the past, and that's all I'd give. The slouching argument is an interesting one, I will say. But could she really be slouching every single time I compare her to Jennie and Leslie? I also try and be fair with camera angles. I've compared her to more than those on her show as well, and just nothing proves to me that she's 5'7 1/2-5'8.
The picture posted below with Lindsay Lohan may show she is 5'8 though. You say Lindsey was in higher heels too? Makes it even harder to know how much taller Amanda would be compared to Lindsey. Amanda isn't standing up straight, that's true. But Lindsay doesn't look to be either. And some say Lindsay is less than 5'5 (A picture posted on her page next to David Spade is interesting as an example.) So the Lindsay/Amanda comparison still can't concretely tell me Amanda is 5'8. Also, I don't agree with you folks that say she is rarely in heels. She wears them quite a bit on her show. And at award shows, I see her mostly in heels.
I'm having to tackle a lot in this post... a flood of Amanda comments lately! lol. Kasey, yes it's true imdb fudges. And magazines fudge. Celebrities themselves fudge. Nonfamous people fudge. It happens a lot. I often don't believe a celebrity when they claim a height. I've mentioned this before on this site, and that is that eye witness accounts can often be off, so I don't trust those always either.
Alex said on 9/Feb/06
I do remember her saying I'm almost 5'8 so shes at least 5'7.5 but 5'8 is very likely too.
Kats said on 8/Feb/06
I was joking about your name anyways. And I am through discussing Bynes with you. It's clear you won't listen. I have already said SHE WEARS HEELS ON HER SHOW. And when she is in heels and Jennie (who is not rounded DOWN when she is listed as 5'5) is in heels, she is definitely not 3 inches more. And guess what? Once, they were in no shoes AT ALL (last season ep.), and the comparison was exactly the same. I can tell the difference between a one inch gap between someone and a 3 inch gap. It's not that hard.
About the average height for males and females... it depends on the sources you look at. Some sources say the heights you gave--5'9 1/2 and 5'4 1/2, some sources get as technical as 5'8.9 and 5'3.7-5'3.8. It just depends.
Kats said on 6/Feb/06
Amanda (Bynes Wannabe?) I didn't just compare Amanda to Jennie. And maybe you should do some research: read my other posts, check Jennie's listings. She's ALWAYS listed as 5'5. That may even be rounding up. You think she could really be 5'6 and always rounded down to 5'5? Doesn't happen in Hollywood, sweety. Plus, I stated that another co-star on the show (Leslie Erin Grossman) is listed as 5'5, and looks equal with Jennie. PLUS, I have always taken heels in account. I mean, did you pick and choose what part of my post/posts to read? I said that both times I took heels into account when I did the Jennie/other co-stars and Amanda comparison.
AGAIN: People lie about height. And if you are already tall, and Amanda technically is, you can get away with it (almost). Plus she is quite thin, with perfect features.
Amanda said on 5/Feb/06
She's 5' 8". She NEVER said she was 5' 10". Where is this article that people are talking about because she never said she was 5' 8".
2002- age 16- She was almost 5' 8"
October 2003- age 17.5- She said she was 5' 8"
April 2004- age 18- She said she was 5' 8"
As for Jennie Garth- she always wears heels, and may be 5' 6". We don't know! Have any of you met these people or are you just making interviews up?
October 2005- age 19- She said she was 5' 8"
Kats said on 4/Feb/06
Watched her show this friday night (sick and had to stay home :( ), and once again, compared to the 5'5 co-stars, she is barely taller. All were wearing typical heeled shoes. Another co-star listed as 5'2 (doubt she is downgraded), is not 6 inches shorter! 5'6-5'6 1/2 keeps showing up for her. Ah, I love harping on this one. If I can convince one non-believer that she lies about her height, it would be awesome. Also gives insight on how a celebrity can lie about height and get away with it... Amanda is built perfectly for a 2 inch+ upgrade. She's got very square shoulders that actually give her more "body" so to speak as oposed to rounded shoulders which makes a person have less. She's also very thin. When she isn't next to 5'5 Jennie Garth, you actually think... "she's gotta be at least 3 inches taller." But she's not!

Drake Bell grew since then and Amanda didn't. Amanda was 5' 7.5" then and is 5' 8" now. Drake was like 5' 7" then and is 5' 9.5" now.

ive met her once in person and she seemed taller than 5'8. i'm 5'6 and she seemed a lot more than 2 inches taller than me...id say 5'10 or even 11
[Editor Rob: was she trainers/shoes/heels?]
Josh said on 1/Dec/05
She looks 5'9 but with sandals on barefoot she´s 172 cm close to 5'8 i saw a site that lists her at 172 cm and she does look that height 5'8 it´s just rounded 1 cm so it´s not bad to say she´s 5'8 .
mr. kennedy said on 25/Nov/05
amanda bynes probably ranges from 5'8 to 5'10 when looking at her compared to drake Bell but I think she akes a strong arguement for 5'9
Wicked Kid said on 22/Nov/05
Amanda's definately not more than 5'6" if Shia LaBeouf IS really 5'10". So you should either up Shia's height or down Amanda's.
Wicked Kid said on 11/Nov/05
I guess 5'6" would be right when you include Shia's footwear into the calculation.
~Nate~ said on 10/Oct/05
I'm not sure how tall Shia Lebouf or however u spell his name is but they hosted TRL the other day and she was wearing boots with about a 3-4 inch heel on it and they were exactly the same height.
Kats said on 1/Oct/05
That picture with Merrin Dungey basically proves she is not 5'8. It's unlikely several things could go wrong (such as slouching, different heels, Merrin Dougey actually being taller than 5'8 when that's how she's listed) for Amanda to actually be the height she claims. She's the celebrity height on here I find the most interesting, because she is one who can actually fool people into believing she really is 5'8. You know what it is? 5'8 is more uncommon for females than people think. When you're around 5'6 1/2 (the height I believe her to really be) that is already above average height for a female, and if you are built right, you can lie and say 5'8 and people will believe it. Because truly, not many other females will be 5'8 to compare them to. So many people fudge on there height, some 5'6ers 5'7ers who are built right can get away with 5'8 or more. It's not just them either. People can add an inch or two to their height and no one really knows it's a lie.
Btw, Amanda was on Conan the other night. I tried to compare those two, (I think his height is accurately listed) but she sat down so fast and he's already so tall as it is I couldn't judge at all. So much for what I thought would be more proof...
anna said on 30/Sep/05
i agree with Nikki! Amanda is thin and long...she's definitely 5'7''...even more!
Kratos said on 2/Jul/05
I met her one time and im 5'9" and she was at least 3 inches shorter than me and she was wearing 3 inch heels, and this was in March 05.
Kats said on 21/Jun/05
There is no way she is 5'8. Yes she is very thin and her build just gives the illusion that she is quite tall, but compare her to her acclaimed 5'5 costar, Jennie Garth in her tv show. No way is she 3 inches taller. And another costar who is said to be 5'5 (she does look dead on with Jennie) is also pretty close to Bynes. I'd put her at 5'6 1/2 again--5'7 AT the most. (And yes, I have taken shoes into account.)
Mandi said on 12/Jun/05
Actually, the almost 5' 8" was part of a quote she said when she was sixteen: "People don't recognize I'm getting older. They see reruns of "All That" so they assume I'm ten years old. I'm 16. I'm almost 5' 8". I'm driving now."
In October 2003 (age 17.5) she said she was 5' 8" and has been saying she was that height ever since.

Amanda said she was 5' 8" (173 cm) in November of 2004 when she was on TV. She is 5' 8". Wearing heels, she may be 5' 10" but she's 5' 8" barefoot.
Smoke said on 29/Apr/05
She is a tallish girl, but nowhere near exceptionally tall even for a woman. Again compared on Regis and Kelly she was in heals, and didn't look too much taller than Regis who is really just about 5'6" and who was in dress shoes. Amanda is 5'7"-5'8", she also didn't really look too much taller than Hilary Duff, and Hilary is only 5'1".
