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.

she's hot! looks 5'7 to me.

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.

without heels she probably hit 5'6

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

She is 5'6. 5'7.5 bs
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.

mimi(: said on 26/Dec/10 I just turned 13 and I'm 5"6. And all my guy friends are taller than me? I don't what school you go to, but 5"1 is REALLY SHORT. So, I doubt your "long&lanky" Plus, all the guys like tall girls because they have long legs. WOW..
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.

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
ras said on 1/Aug/07
Guys understand, she is no more than the height listed in here. Probably 5'7 even, she could be anything from 5'6.5 to 5'7.5, it's just that she likes to use big heels. Those saying that she was "a few cms taller than you" and that you are 5'7 and something, it's because your eyes are not on the top of your head, a quarter of an inch is not noticeable at a glance is it?

Here she is using her big heels with Damien Fahey,

5'7.5 is right on for her.
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.

She looks pretty tall. Dunno the heights of the others though.

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.
Anonymous said on 8/May/07
Well I've got a curious picture here of her with Wilmer Valderrama. She's not as tall as him:

And the most interesting part of it is that she was wearing heels:

I mean, wouldn't she be taller thsn Wilmer about 3 centimeters? She's slouching just a bit, but he hasn't got the best posture either....Weird.
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! :)

I think IF we consider Alex Beckenridge is 5'7, Amanda Bynes should be downgraded to 5'7 too.

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.
lydia said on 2/Jan/07
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.

she was a good inch taller than 5'7 rove mcmanus wen she was interviewed by him wen she was in asutralia a month or two ago..and she was in flats
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.

Amanda said on 23/Mar/06
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".
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!

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

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.

I guess 5'6" would be right when you include Shia's footwear into the calculation.

Interesting comparison with the 5'10 Shia. I don't know if I'd say her hairstyle gives her an inch of height. There is some height to it but I doubt a full inch.

My guess is her shoes make her 2 inches taller--maybe slightly more. Shia's are what--1/2 an inch? I agree she is probably 2 inches shorter than he is according to the TRL pictures. He is slightly closer to the camera in the last two but you can still tell she is about 2 inches shorter. So she is probably about 5'6- 5'6 1/2 according to my calculations.

[Editor Rob: the question is if her 'almost 5ft 8' was the same as brie larson's 'almost 5ft 8'...i.e. more like 5ft 7 and not growing more...]

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.

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...

From this site - Amanda was like 'Let's take a picture!......She's REALLY tall!! She was really nice too."

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.

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.)

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.

i saw her in bloomingdales trying on shoes (flats) and she was for sure 5'8" because i'm 5'5" and she was at least 3 in. taller than me.

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.

She is 2 inches taller than alexis blede. she is a head taller than frankie muniz.

[Editor Rob: She's only 5ft 5.5 ;) - Sometimes things aren't that clear in photos...there she is standing next to 5ft 8 Merrin Dungey yet she looks to be struggling with 5ft 6. Now, let's say Manda is 5ft 9, they've got same posture and identical heels...then Megan is a 184cm gal. But you see when she was on Alias she looked 5ft 8...]

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".

My friend saw her and said that she is 180cm.she does look 180cm

Certainly with 3.5 inch heels she looks tall. Barefeet she might be on the 5ft 7.5 mark now - I checked some recent pics and she's in that range...

Amanda Bynes is NOT 5ft 6.5! I remember her quoting somewhere that she was close to 5'10" or 5'11". Besides, when you see her in movies like What A Girl Wants, it is clear that she is very tall, especially when she stands with people like Collin Firth and Oliver James.
