Anna Nicole Smith's Height
5ft 8 ½ (174 cm)
American model and actress, remembered as a 1993 Playmate of the Year and for roles in Nakes Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult, Skyscraper and The Hudsucker Proxy. She filled in her Playboy stats as follows: "36DD Bust, 26 inch waist, 38 inch hip, 5ft 11 height, weight 140lbs (10 stone)"
The coroner's report stated her body was 71 inches with a weight of 178 pounds, although this contradicts her 1989 mugshot

Her height could have varied through the day more than the average person idk. It’s pretty certain 5’8”-5’9.75” is where her height fell in. Her legs were no question long for her height even if just below 5’9” at her midday low. She was a big girl and heavy in her upper body as a model. That could have made her lose more through the day.

let’s say 5’8.75” most of the day with normal posture. That explains the 5’10” sightings in Bahamas with strict posture lol. The average measurement guess would be 5’8.25” for the whole day (counting her morning height with strict posture.)

This is even too much.

Donald Trump described her as being six foot tall! He does this with any woman above 5ft 7

Rob, do you think that if she was not dead, would she get more attention in terms of height today?I mean, would she maintain her reign of celebheights? Would she able to compete with likes of swift,rai?
She might have been in the top 100 regularly. Especially as there is such diversity in how tall folk had thought she looked.

That's a crazy exaggeration for a 5'8.5" woman to be claiming 5'12" (which is the same thing as 6'0")
MaryAnne said on 15/Jan/18
She claimed:"I'm 5ft 12". She is not 6ft for sure. Can you add her to female models list Rob?

I generally would say that mugshots inflate actually height but Anna Nicole is probably an exception. I’d say 5’9”?
said on 14/Jan/18
Rob how did they get 5 foot 11 out of 5 ft 8.5?
I've no idea, but look at Anna in sneakers beside Roger McDowell
who used to get called 6ft 1.

I think this is pretty far off - which is pretty unusual for Celebheights.
Please look at photos of her literally standing next to other celebrities like Brigitte Nielsen.
She was at least 5'10.5" Rob. Police mugshots are sometimes as reliable as heights gleamed from autopsy results as poster Peruna just stated.
Please take another look at her with other verifiably tall celebs and you'll see this is wrong as listed. Do you think the autopsy results, which listed her at 71 inches, would be this FAR off??! They're sometimes wrong, but usually not by three inches!
they had Tupac at 6ft and he was barely taller than 'Big G', even Glenn thought that one strange.
A 5ft 10.5 women should surely look taller with 5ft 2 Roseanne

she is around 5-10.i see her every night.i have 5 or 6 photos with her now.couldve been 20 photos if i took her every time.never saw her in my life,then in the last 8 months or so its nonstop.
Okay, either the date is wrong or this was meant for another page(in reference to a different celeb), as Anna Nicole passed on 08/Feb/07.
Though Glenn spotting ghosts would hardly surprise me....
Yes that is a comment that should be moved to Christensen's page, which took over the database id from Anna's page.

Rob, the queen of celebheights.com is back (once upon a time, her height was discussed by majority of people before Taylor Swift was even famous) thank you,Rob for resurrecting her page.. Surprisingly enough, I did not expect her to be that short, she was said to hit 6 foot mark in 90's,then she,herself claimed 5'11. A few years ago she was listed 5'9.5 here. I thought she could maintain her 5'9.5 listing but you got me astonished rob.. also she was a model add her in the female models list rob :)
Yes, she was due a reboot on Celebheights, and on a second look I decided that maybe 174cm was possible.

My Dad was a police man, he told me that the measuring of a suspect is never that accurate, always within an inch or even 2 ither way. Most of the time your measuured with your shoes on if your a man, if your intoxicated your head usually slumps forward with your chin down. My brother saw Anna Nicole Smith in the Bahamas a few years ago before she passed away, he didnt recognise her but someone pointed out it was her, she had on a velour leisure suit, sport shoes, no makeup and hair tied back, he said she was about the same height as him and he's about 5ft 10 and a little bit. I asked him a few days ago after reading this, was she around 5 ft 8, and he said not a cat in hells chance, she was most deffinetley his height,she was vey tall for a woman, his words not mine
joz said on 5/May/07
with all respect i dont think she's 5'9 at least 5'7 to 5'8 see mug shot
glenn said on 7/Apr/07
huh? who? what about tupac at 6ft?
Anon said on 6/Apr/07
Well I guess you all look pretty damn stupid now the official autopsy report clearly states her as being 71 inches tall. You can't fake an autopsy report so I guess you'll have to accept it. Looks like ANS told the truth about her height.
Glenn said on 7/Feb/07
Small heels I think.

Glenn, was she wearing heels in thi pic?
Glenn said on 5/Feb/07
Wow Scott.thats tall!
Kats said on 27/Oct/05
(to 18/Sep/05 comment) Lol, yes the police chart probably is accurate. Why I felt the need to defend Smith's height I will never know. And she almost certainly couldn't have grown 2 or more inches. I think it's time to lower this 5'10 height.
(LMAO at the "I'm 5ft 12" quote)

lol, I forgot a few years ago she also said: "I'm 5ft 12"

Hmm... Naked Gun 33 1/3 is now on TV, and she looks maybe 183–185 cm/6'–6'1" (same height or taller than Leslie Nielsen) with (7–8 cm/3") heels on. So that would make her 176–178 cm/5'9¼–5'10" barefoot, and she has looked this on other occasions.
You really can't be sure with a movie, but video footage is less decieving than still images.
Anonymous said on 18/Oct/05
Why hasn't this been changed to a generous 5'8" yet?
Anshelm said on 10/Oct/05
Well, using a tape measure I got an estimate of c. 173 cm/5'8" from the pic with Carmen Electra – if Electra's 159 cm/5'2½". Even using Electra's old height of 163 cm/5'4" I get 177 cm/5'9½", still shorter than the claim. And based on Electra's recent measured height, I'd say she has never been taller than 161 cm/5'3½" – but of course you can round this up to 5'4".
Interestingly, I remember estimating Smith's height at c. 173 cm also in the early '90s, when I didn't know her official height. I later thought that I just made a poor estimate, but guess not...
And finally, wouldn't you agree, that at 173 cm her reported weights seem more believable? I mean, she was said to be 63 kg/138 lbs at the lighest, and with a height of 180 cm/5'11" that's nearly supermodel-thin. And frankly she's NEVER been that.
Nothing's granted here though. Isn't Kelly Osbourne supposed to be shorter than Electra? Using the tape measure I get c. 167 cm/5'6¾" for her... Be always prepared to question your own estimates ;)

Any chance the measuring wall for her mugshot was inaccurate? I wonder if that ever happens... Add that with a possible late growth spurt (my mum grew an inch after 23--seriously) and slouching and maybe she's 5'10?
Heh, weird coincidence if all those occurred. Personally, I never believed she was even 5'10, let alone the listings of even 5'11!
I really want to know about that measuring wall though...
[Editor Rob: normally you would expect the police station to have a height chart that was accurate ;) So I assume it is...the early 20's growth is very rare though...I think many instances of people saying they had 'grew' in their 20's might simply be a case of being measured incorrectly. The thing is, Beside 6ft 1 Dhani Jones, although can't see heels...
Speaking of dhani, erm, Shannon Elizabeth. What should I do about 'I'm 5ft 9' Shannon?]

So are you telling me that if she were standing up straight in that mugshot, the top of her skull would rise 3in to the 5ft 11in mark? Based on that picture, I find that hard to visualize.
[Editor Rob: of course not...now if she somehow had her shoes off and was adopting worst posture known to womankind then this would bring her to 5ft 10 mark. But I scratch my head at that still. She does though look tall in most of the photos out there of her...]

A female growing an inch in her mid-twenties? You have an exponentially better chance of winning the lottery, Rob. And also, it's rather difficult to slouch if are standing with your back against a wall. If anything, it would force you to strand up straighter. She'd either have to have her legs spread apart twice shoulder width to lose that kind of height, (and it'd be absurd for anyone to stand in an uncomfortable position like that for no reason.); or she'd have to have her back leaning flat against the wall with her feet far out in front of her. Once again, highly unlikely. I'm convinced that she really is around 5'6.5''-5'7'', Rob. On t.v. she never appeared tall to me; just fat. I suppose that her extreme girth that she had when her show was on could have given people the impression that she was tall as well as wide. Combine that with her constant high heels, tall hair, and the fact that she seems to have a large frame for a woman; and she could easilly seem 5'10'' to people who don't know any better. I did notice that whenever she took off her heels, that she was not that tall.
[Editor Rob: the original 5ft 11 listing comes directly from her own pen. She filled in the following for playboy:
36DD Bust, 26 inch waist, 38 inch hip, 5ft 11 height, weight 140lbs (10 stone).
In any case, This pic both her and 5ft 2.5 electra are nearly same distance from camera. Nicole SMith is in bigger heels though.]

From a gossip newsgroup: "She was quite dinky and delicate looking, she's a smaller woman than most people think and than her bios state, unless I'm much taller than I am. :)"
