American actress best known for roles in films such as The Muppets, Arrival, Enchanted, Wedding Date, Junebug, Nocturnal Animals, The Master and American Hustle. In the Telegraph newspaper (April 24, 2006) she said regarding her height, "but I'm far too short to pull it off (I'm 5ft 4)."

I love the art of fashion but I'm five foot four, so it's not designed to be perfect on my body. My fashion is more practical because, alas, I'm not five foot ten and aged 16. It's one of the comments I get: 'Oh gosh, you're so small!' Ben Affleck said that.

I will never forget performing the dance number on Hollywood Boulevard with Jason. As I said earlier, he's a very tall man and it's hilarious to see him alongside the rest of the cast. The Muppets are 3 foot 4, I am 5 foot 4 and Jason is 6 foot 4, so it was very difficult to get us all in the same shot.
Modelling is not my first love...I'm five foot four with a sort of, what should I say, everyday girl's kind of build.

Rob, why not believe Amy’s consistent 5’4” claims?

She held up well for 5’4” next to Bradley Cooper in American Hustle.

She is somewhere between 5'3" and 5'4" IMO so I think the listing is quite accurate.

@ tiny - How tall are you?

She ain’t too short to pull it off!
Jtm said on 23/Mar/21
has anyone seen hillbilly elegy? she's a min inch shorter than glenn close and close is lucky to be 5'4 nowadays herself. she also looks 3 or 4 inches shorter than haley bennett who plays her daughter. bennett is listed 5'6.5 here but that seems unlikely compare how she looked with other people in that film. i doubt she's the 5'4 she claims.

💐🎂💝🎊 Happy Birthday Amy! 🎊💝🎂💐

Hard as it is to believe, the lovely, redheaded Amy Adams turns 46 years old today. Have a great day, Amy!

I'm going to up her height to 5ft3.75.

5'4" is average!

In general society she is within the average range!
Jessa said on 11/Jun/18
Looked similar to Natalie Portman
Jtm said on 29/May/18
the problem is she didn't look taller than frances mcdormand in miss pettigrew lives for a day despite wearing heels and mcdormand wearing flats.
Nik said on 26/May/18
I doubt that Amy Adams is under listed!
MAD SAM said on 25/May/18
161 cm, looks 5’4” in man of steel though
Tom said on 7/Aug/17
5'3" maybe 5'3.25"
Joey said on 7/Jul/17
She is 5'3"' but looked 5'4" IMO.
Hokuto said on 25/Jan/17
looks 4-5 inches shorter than 5'8 Jeremy Renner in Arrival so I think the 5'3.5 or 161cm listing is accurate.
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Nov/16
Amy Adams is super-elegant and I am surprised to find that she is this short! I would have thought her to be at least 5ft5.5 or more.
anon said on 19/Mar/15
I don't think she is any less than 161cm.
In this pic below she is not towered by Gwen and Zoe who are 5'6 and 5'7.... they are all in heels. 5'3.5 seems fair!

5'3.5" is a fair listing! she's one of the best actress in hollywood (in all senses)!!!
Jack said on 16/Jan/15
She doesn't look much shorter than Jennifer Lawrence (5'7.5") in the photo above. I don't see a full 10 centimeter difference (assuming they are wearing similar footwear of course, which can't be seen from this angle).
Judd said on 10/Jan/15
One of the most beautiful and attractive actress in Hollywood!
5'3" on the nose!
LA Womas said on 25/Dec/14
Saw her at a grocery store one morning. She had on stacked heeled boots. I'm a solid 5'7" and she was still shorter than me. I would say her boot heel was about 3 to 4 inches.
Sarah said on 9/Nov/14
She looks pretty small, about 5" shorter than 5'8" Joaquin Phoenix in "Her". Possible 5'3" even, Rob?
Editor Rob
at times she can look that, but then other times I feel can be a bit taller
No said on 4/Sep/14
@Crash That's not even her real colour she's a dark blonde.
Phoebe said on 13/Jul/14
Amy adams is smaller than madonna she is 5ft 3 1.60m 50kg (110lbs)
Crash said on 21/May/14
Definitely one of the more attractive women with red her, they can be a bit "hit and miss" but not Amy. Good listing
Vintageous said on 18/Jan/14
Met her and got an autograph. Very pretty! and very short / petite...around 5'2 to 5'3 at the very most. It really shows in American Hustle even with the fantastic shoes.
Arch Stanton said on 31/Dec/13
Super hot, can look taller in films and look 5'5-5'6".
jtm said on 4/Jul/13
i thought this listing was accurate but i now think she's 5'2.5-5'3 after watching charlie wilson's war and looking at more picture.
tiny said on 21/Jun/13
Amy Adams is a well packaged girl at about 5'3" & 120 lbs with the right curves at the right places
ArjunaKorale said on 9/Jan/13
I often get Amy Adams mixed up with the equally attractive Isla Fisher! Adams is a very attractive actress with a cute little figure & curvy pert bum, but I just gotta says to the deluded fools who say that Adams looks 5 ft 6 (or even worse 5 ft 7) that you are a bunch of jokers - no way is Amy even close to that height & I commend you guys for putting up a number (161 cm) that sounds a lot closer to the truth! Clearly Adams is in the 161 to 163 cm range.
jtm said on 1/Aug/11
wahlberg has also been listed at 5'7 and even that 4 letter site has him at that height.i think that is closer to the truth.i agree with 5'3.5 for adams.
Chief Justice said on 21/Jun/11
5'4 girl says on 20/Jun/11
i think she is 5'6 - 5'7......

i think i agree with 5'4girl.....because in the film of The Fighter whereby Amy Adams starred as Mark Wahlberg's lover....they both seem to be almost the same height....Mark Wahlberg is claimed by observers standing at the range of 5'8-5'9......n Amy Adams seems to be like 1 or 2 inches shorter than yeah, i do see the logic short, i'd say Adams is 5'6 - 5'7
5'4 girl said on 20/Jun/11
i think she is 5'6 - 5'7
Aly said on 15/May/11
I'd say she's about 5'4...she's not THAT short!!! She's never EVER seemed this short in comparison to any of her costars...
Ken said on 1/Apr/11

anon said on 1/Mar/11
looks atleast 5'6" from the Oscar pics
Canopus said on 2/Jan/11
In the picture 'absent' posted, Adams looks maybe 2" shorter but Blunt has on flats and Adams looks like she has on some sort of a heel. I'll say she's about 5'4. 5'5 wouldn't surprise me.
Leighk - That picture says nothing. One is so much closer to the camera. Distance to camera and angle can have a HUGE difference in height.
Clay said on 22/May/09
Go watch the behind the scenes stuff of Sunshine cleaning, in similar footwear Blunt is about 3 inches taller than Adams when they stand next to each other. I wouldn't be surprised if in the movie Adams was on a box when next to Blunt so they looked closer in height. Plus Jon Krasinski is a legit 6'3 guy and Blunt doesn't look that tiny next to him. I say Blunt is 5'7 and Adams is 5'4.
Max said on 21/May/09
Will Ferrel seems 12 inches taller than Amy in her role in Talladega Nights
Debbie said on 18/May/09
I agree leighk Emily is no more than 5'4 I thought she was taller until I saw her next to Amy Adams.
leighk said on 22/Apr/09
This is actually kind of confusing, see this height listed here 5'3.5 seems right to me! but then i looked at emily blunts' height and it says she's 5'7.25 which i ALSO think is accurate but if you look here in this picture:

Click Here

amy is on one side of the mattress and emily is on the other and notice their shoes are almost the same and compare them as if they were standing a bit closer, Amy actually might be a bit taller.?
does anyone see that too?
Heightgirl said on 20/Apr/09
Even in heels she still looks shorter than Glen and he is leaning in too. I'm sure in hair heels she is about 5f5 or 5f6.
5 ft 3.5 said on 4/Feb/09
Obviously Amy Adams is wearing heels. All celebs do.
glenn said on 25/Jan/09
i have isla too.similar is correct.
Big T said on 25/Jan/09
No "theman", that was Isla Fisher
cagoller said on 24/Jan/09
theman: you're thinking of Isla Fisher from wedding crashers. they do resemble one another and are of simaler build. Both gorgeous and petite
glenn said on 24/Jan/09
not sure.she was in enchanted.i think thats what its called.she plays roles like that.princess,damsel in distress.
theman said on 24/Jan/09
She was the crazy nimpho in Wedding Crashers right?
glenn said on 23/Jan/09
blow it out your a** joe.i dont dream dream of meeting not standing straight with any woman and they all wear heels.fitting name you have.keep performing.
Joe Blow said on 23/Jan/09
This looks like gleens trying to push his "dream of being 5'8"
Jay said on 22/Jan/09
So is she wearing heels? Because if she's not...and Glenn is 5'8 there is no way in hell she's 5'3
Marksman said on 22/Jan/09
"She certainly looks exactly as tall as 5'8 glenn". Glenn is obviously taller. Her hair must have fooled you, look little bit closer buddy :D
Mark said on 21/Jan/09
so.. she has a 4.5 inch heel? coz she certainly looks exactly as tall as 5'8 glenn.. i think shes about 5'5 or 5'5.5 and wears a 3 inch heel. because glenns height in this pic might be atleast 5'8.5 (because of shoes).
bam said on 20/Jan/09
she looks gorgeous in the pic
Trent said on 20/Jan/09
must be at least 3-4 inched heels, she looks tall next to glenn if you consider that she's 5'3.5
glenn said on 20/Jan/09
big heels.
Anonymous said on 19/Jan/09

Lisa... she wouldnt look like a dwarf next to Patric dempsey... i mean hes 5'10!!! I think 5'3 is not short!
lisa said on 27/Oct/08
wow shes the same height as hilary duff ,i can picture her and patrick dempsey together , she be like a dwarf beside him
Jessica said on 10/Jan/08
I'd give her 5'4, she wore around 2-3 inch heels in Enchanted and didn't appear to be 'very short'. She's very well proportioned though, this might add illusion of height. Has Glenn ever met her?

I'm really glad Amy is starting to get the recognition she deserves, I've loved her for ages, she's amazing in Emchanted!!!
Tess said on 5/Dec/07
5'3'' seems about right...she looked rather shorter (even in heels) than patrick dempsey in "enchanted", who is 5'8''-5'9'' himself.
Sara said on 15/Oct/06
I love Amy Adams, and I can not believe that no one knows anything about her, thank you for putting this informmation out, so fans (like me) can see it!!
D. Ray Morton said on 25/Jul/06
I've seen Adams on three separate occasions within the last couple of months (most recently in Central Park, at the end of June). They seem to be filming all over the city. Apparently they're shootin' in mah neck o' the woods (midtown west, that's what I heard) over the next couple of days, so I'll perhaps I'll see her again...

She did look 5'4" - to me, anyway and Patrick Dempsey looked 5'9" (I always thought he was taller than that).
Haylie said on 25/Jul/06
I saw Junebug recently and she did look around the 5'4 mark, she wore flat shoes/ bare feet a lot.
