⭐ Can anybody tell me what a size 5.5 American shoe size would be in English? Is it a UK size 3.5? That's what I take, and considering Amber's height in comparison to mine, I'm beginning to think my feet belong on a duck,🦆 yet at school I had the smallest feet in class, but I was in a rather tall class in the Senior school, equivalent to the American High School. In my Junior school, there were two tiny girls in my class: Nina, who was lovely and invited me to her party, who grew up to be just 4ft9, and Susan, who had a twin brother. I sat next to the twin, David, also small, and he was very quick-witted - and clever!
So back to Amber. I'm enjoying her part in 'House' a great deal. She is a girl with ethics. Next to Greg House (Hugh Laurie), it's not easy to tell that she is model-girl height, but when you think how tiny 5ft6 Cuddy looks next to Hugh, it DOES make sense!
I'm going with 5ft7. 👩💐

Amber is taller for a woman than Dad, Russ, is for a man, so I gather she has a tall Mom! I've seen her in 'House' and 'The Grudge 2', and she looks fairly tall, so I will give her 5ft6.5. 😁

She dwarfed Alexis Bledel when together wearing similar sized footwear.

Amber Tamblyn towers over Alexis Bledel. Always pictured Alexis being the taller of the two.

Looking a good 4 inches shorter than 5'8 max Aaron Paul. Very odd, but I suppose we can't see their feet. Still, 5'6 max, I think.

5'6" max. 2 or more inches shorter than Blake Lively in the same size heels.

Hard to pin down. Always looked pretty close to 5'8 Chris Marquette in Joan of Arcadia... maybe like a 1.5 inch difference? Then again, I'm not convinced Marquette is 5'8, because he looked shorter than Mary Steenburgen on the same show. I'd guess more 5'5.

looked same height as 5'3" Kate Mara in 127 hours, both I believe had hiking boots on... they both looked considerably shorter about 6 inches or 7 from James Franco

At the start of the ring when she and her friend becca played by Rachel Bella are in hallway, Amber has no shoes on and becca has trainers on and both looked same height. Apparently the girl who played becca is 5'6" if she was wearing trainers she'd be 5'7" so amber must be 5'7"

In Sisterhood of the traveling pants Blake Lively had a good 3-4 inches on her, so if Amber was 5'6 then Blake would be 5'9-5'10, but on this site Blake is listed as 5'8 and if she was 5'8 would make Amber 5'4-5'5.

It's amazing that she wears a size 5.5 US shoe! That's some tiny feet for her height.

5'6.5 to 5'7 in "the russell girl" since her boyfriend is about 5'11.75 in the movie

I think she was taller than the guy who played her boyfriend on Joan of Arcadia. Can anybody verify this?
Jessica said on 24/Jan/08
Exactly, Pete! Amber could have been wearing flats and Alexis in heels, we don't know. Personally, I think Amber is 5'6- she does look it in Joan of Arcadia

I don't know if she's smaller than Alexis...I think they're roughly the same height, give or take .5"

This is a rarity for me, but I got to see Amber at a restaurant in Burbank yesterday filming an ad for actor Joe Mantegna. I did not ask her height (that would indeed seem strange), infact, I was trying to figure out who she was at first! She is thinner in person and taller than I would've expected. I would say that she is at LEAST 5ft7, POSSIBLY a little over that. She was wearing trainers and wearing an apron while filming. I do think she should be moved up to at least 5ft7.

oops, no wait, she's taller (than bledel) by about an inch. But Bledel slouches all the time. So Bledel 5'7" when she doesn't slouch and 5'6.5" when she does. So that makes Tamblyn about 5'7.5" or a little less than 5'8". Tamblyn doesn't slouch as much. I say we leave Tamblyn at a 5'75" that sounds about right.
person said on 26/Apr/06
she's 5'6" even because she's a little shoeter than alexis bledel

Anne Hathaway is about 2 inch taller and she 5ft8 so she cant be 5ft7.some pics on getty imanges

Katelyn, actually, Michelle Trachtenberg WAS wearing heels in that picture with Amber Tamblyn. Here is a picture from that night, in which you can see their feet:
Granted, due to the pants Amber is wearing, you cannot see how big her heels are. I'd say that, barefoot, Amber is probably a twinge taller.

You have Amber in here twice, with two different heights.
[Editor Rob: thanks for pointing the duplicate.

I'm not sure if there's really any benefit for most actresses to fudge their height unless there also a model or in some other profession that requires them to be tall. I imagine the very tall ones and the models would fudge their height more than those who are around average.
Anyways Amber always appeared to be at least average if not taller to me.
Paul says on 13/Oct/05
A lot of actresses fudge their height esepcially on publicity sites like IMDB. My sister is a dancer/actress and her agency adds 2 inches to her height. I think this would be commonplace really for every women except v.tall ones

A good indication of Amber's height is from The Ring, where she is barefooted in every scene she is in. Rachael Bella (who played Amber's character's friend) is listed on her official page as being 5'6". In the film, Amber appears to be the same height or taller than Bella, with Bella wearing shoes and Amber barefoot. So, I'd say Amber is at least 5'7"

Amber seems like a pretty tall girl. She was at least the same height as Chris Marquette on Joan of Arcadia, and she almost always wore flats (I can recall only one episode that she wore heels, and when she did she was noticably taller than Marquette).
Paul says on 31/Aug/05
A,ber is nowhere near 5'7, i wish i could find a decent picture to illustrate this, check any episode of Joan of Arcadia, the barely 5'8 Mary Steenburgen is at least 3-4.5 inches over her in nearly every scene. Even then i wold question steeburgen's height as for instance look in Back to the Future 3 with J Fox she has heels and isn't miles bigger than 5'4 fox.

Amber is about the same height as Alexis Bledel, here is a full shot picture of Amber and Alexis at one of their premieres:
They appear to be about eye-to-eye, with similar sized heels.
[Editor Rob: I think Amber is slightly bigger...but this could be a case of Bledel being slightly under 5ft 7 and the other girl nearly being 5ft 7.5]

Sorry but there is no way this girl is 5'7, she looks max 5'5, she is about the same height as chris marquette, a bit bigger than kris lemche - he way fudges his height! Just look at her height in several scenes from joan of arcadia with joe mantegna
