I think MK is taller than Ro and children who are under four foot nine in Tennessee Rest Areas and Ash is taller than MK! How do you do the Metric System so well? That's why I trust CelebHeights because all of the Google searches Constantine Maroulis's fanbases and fan clubs came off of to brought me here made me go on to see six foot three as said in Victorious Victoria Justice's "Best Friend's Brother"!

Click Here Rob check this out here ash says they are five one to five feet
Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii said on 26/Feb/18
Ah okay makes sense ty for telling me I think Ash is 4’11-5’1 a magazine said she’s 5’1 but this listing seems accurate
Editor Rob
I'm certain one (or both) has also claimed to be 5ft 1, I've read that in the past, but on Oprah they seemed to admit being more 5 feet ish.
Nik said on 26/Feb/18
This listing seems fair to me!
Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii said on 25/Feb/18
Rob why does it say 5’3 online when she’s shorter than 5’2 people
Editor Rob

I think given they admitted to being around 5 feet, any site listing them at 5ft 3 probably isn't that concerned about accuracy.
Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii said on 24/Feb/18
Lol she’s not 5’3
lee168cm said on 22/Feb/18
And their sister Elizabeth looks 5 or 6 inches taller in most photos and she's 5'4
lee168cm said on 22/Feb/18
No way are either over 4'11 Carey mulligan towered over them and she's only five foot six

FYI, these two are fraternal twins, not identical. Odd I know, but true.
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Feb/17
Cheers Rob! At least I'm not the only one! 👍
Editor Rob: funny, Jenny's Mum is an identical twin, but I can tell difference, but always get these girls mixed up!
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Feb/17
Rob - Sorry! I don't think I mixed them up after all!
Editor Rob: I find them hard to tell apart!
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Feb/17
Ah! I think identical twins are an absolute treat for the eyes! Two people exactly the same - magical!
I didn't know whether to pick Ashley or Mary-Kate, so I did a bit of a toss-up, as it were! The girls are much the same in the height department, as well as everything else! I've never noticed any difference when I've seen them photographed together, and that's been quite a few times over the years! I'd go for 4ft11.25 for Mary-Kate, the supposedly smaller of the two, though I can't see it myself!

Linda, I think some of them have a false idea of what the average height is. Like you, I noticed that quite a lot of female celebrities exaggerate their height.
linda said on 30/Jul/14
I think she's more like 4 foot 10. She's absolutely tiny. Why is it that celebs always make themselves taller than they actually are.
Olsen obsessive said on 27/Feb/14
She said she's five foot one in an interview and that mary kate is five foot
kg said on 27/May/13

Rob did you actually watch Oprah for the link you provided above? Oprah said to them "you guys are five foot and five one" Ashley Olsen replied "yeah but am definately not 5'1 ". I cant find the video on youtube.

here is a link to the Olsen sisters with ~5'2" Emma Roberts.

Click Here

Emma's platforms look near the same height as Mk's heels. MK's heels are slightly taller than Ashley's and it gives her some height. Judging from the photo's and personal accounts I'd say MK = 4'9"-4'10" and Ashley = 4'10"-4'11"

They have also stated in a couple of interviews that at most they are 5 feet but probably not even that.
Someone said on 13/Jul/11
I always thought they would be like 5'8'' or 5'8'' 1/2, guess I was wrong!
Max said on 17/Jun/11
So Ashley is actually slightly taller than Mary-Kate at 5'1" and Mary-Kate's 5'0"
Beth said on 14/Jun/11
I saw a photo of the twins with Emma Roberts. Emma is 5'2 (1 57 cm) and , i think, Ashley is shorter. Like... 4'11 or 5'
aphrodyte said on 31/Mar/11

In their movie 'When in Rome' both the Olsen twins look alot taller than 5'1. They look around 5'4 and 5'5. But in 'Winning London' they both look 5 feet at the most. So I don't know if they're short or average but they're certainly not tall.
Anonymous said on 27/Apr/09
If she says she is 5'1", then she must be 5' tall. Why not lie when you can/when everyone else seem to. Taller than her sister, maybe 1-2 cm.

5 feet is enough for her.
:) said on 9/Dec/08
yup, she mentioned about 5'1".. 5'..
Anonymous said on 29/Nov/08
In that interview, she actually said " 5'1" ..5-foot " suggesting that she's somewhere between 5' and 5'1"

why not said on 1/Nov/08
I've been following this debate and "someone who knows" never stated that AO said she was 5 ft. 2 but that Oprah calculated it as such and AO then stated that she wasn't. I remember because I agreed with her/him, that poster, and that MKO agreed to being about 5 or 5 ft. 1 and then wasn't sure. That Oprah episode was taped before they were 18 because their father was there as their guardian and MK was yet to go to rehab for anorexia which is why their size was being questioned.
Oh, and AO played the elder sister card even though it is just a 2 minute difference.
They have small builds but that doesn't make them a definite to be at any height because people of all builds come in various heights.
They look around 5 ft. 1ish & 5 ft. 0ish to me, especially on their latest Oprah visit.
robbie said on 11/May/08
I think both of them are extremely tiny...
not even 5 feet..amybe they just round it up to bout 5 feet..
so i would say 4'10 or 4'11
Elainee said on 26/Feb/08
5'1 sounds right for her. In the New York Minute premiere pictures, the twins & Candace are wearing similiar heels, and Ashley is standing right next to her. You can't see entirely how they're standing, but it seems like they're standing straight.. Ashley is a bit taller than Candace, so I'd think Ashley is around 5'1, but not 5'2 yet. Also, I doubt they're under 5'0.

Tell me something. Doesn't Mary Kate seem to slouch in all pics? Yet when she stood with Kelly Osbourne here, is it now you tell me yes or no, is it as big a difference as when she stands with Ashley. Didn't think so. Where has Kelly claimed to be 5ft1. Where? I know Nicole said she was 5ft1 on Jay Leno. By the way the Oprah thing with Ashley and Mary Kate was 4/28/04, but wasn't aired until a few months later.

I watched it again.
in exact words
Oprah to Ashley: ..and you're 1 inch taller
Ashley: yeah about 1 inch taller and then she said something about being older.
15 minutes later or so
Oprah to both: 'cause you guys are wha-
Oprah to Mk: you're 5'1, fi- (she was gonna say 5" since Mk took kinda long to answer)
Mk: 5
Ashley: 5, 5'1
Oprah thought Ashley was answering for Mk but she in fact wasn't so Oprah says "5'1 mmhmm" as an a acknowledgement that she got their heights so Oprah goes on and says (look below)
Oprah to Ashley but talking to Mk until she says 5'1": so that means if you're 5'1 than you're 5'2"
Ashely: yeaahh...except for that I'm not 5'2"
Mk realizing what Ashley has said quickly say: no, yeah..(and then slurs)I don't even think I'm 5'1 sooo

There you go there it is.
To someone who knows I highly suggest you watch it again Ashley never said she was about 5ft2. The only time 5ft2 came out of her mouth was when she said "yeah...except for I'm not 5'2." In conclusion their heights are 5' and 5ft1.

And now something hysterical, Ashley in 3" heels Click Here with Snoop Dog Click Here and the Pirates Click Here
And this is a cool story about these wee girls wearing superhigh heels: Click Here Click Here (I especially adore the YSL platforms!)
My verdict: 5' max for Ashley, 4'11" for Mary-Kate
LAAnonyme said on 25/Oct/07
Ashley is barely 5' - maybe a half-inch taller if she stands up straight (but she and Mary-Kate tend to slouch). They are both so cute in person, though.
an said on 18/Aug/07
I don't know where you're getting that from, Brynn. Even in the pic you posted she looks just a tad smaller. MK might be 4'11" and Ash 5', but I don't think Ash is below 5'. I think those heights might even maybe be more accurate, because next to Kelly Osbourne MK looked at least 2" smaller. Also, next to Drew Barrymore Ash looked about 3" smaller and they were in similar heels. Maybe they've grown, as they were only 17 back then, who knows?
zellynnicious said on 6/Jul/07
how do u put a link here? Never mind, but it`s true, olsen twins are so little, geez. Even me, I always wanted to be a few inches smaller than I`m right now, but the twins r petite-petite. Smaller than my 12 years old sister!
Brynn said on 19/Jun/07
Click on the picture link below, if Candace Kameron is really 5-2 then Ash is only 4-10. Its funny how they lied about their heights.

An early mmorning height is a bit taller than in the evening... (don´t ask me why..It´s something about the back.. i think???), MizzBizz I don´t know how old you are but it always helps if you do a lot of sports!! I´ve done sports since a was just 4.. And I am 5ft.9.. (both of my parents are small).. So you can try that...
MizzBizz said on 10/May/07
What is an early morning height? And what do you have to do to grow? Because i`m about 5'1 and i really want to be at least 2 inches taller.
X said on 19/Apr/07
Candace's flat footed height is about 5 ft. 2.5 and she is only a little taller than the Olsen sisters at the premiere of "NYM". They all 3 wore similar appearing heel heights and CCB embellished a bit with her hair height.

ow yeah? I thought she was 5 ft and mary-kate was 4-11. My friend met them, she is 5 ft 1 and they were smaller than she. I could be wrong..but actually I don't think so. They are really smal..and mary-kate looks like a child next to that old dude!! They can't me 5 ft and 5 ft 1. That idea is hilarious, I mean come on! everybody knows that these 2 girls are verry small! THey can't be over 5 ft! I dont beleave it.

Pictures of their actual licenses would not be available online. Besides, people list their the height that appears on their license themselves; the DMV doesn't measure them.
mir said on 6/Dec/06
5"1 is not 155.Its about 152.

[Editor Rob: it is 152...in the world of bad cm->inch conversion tools! In the proper world, 155 is about 5ft 1]
MK and Ashley Fan said on 12/Nov/06
On their website their are now selling mobile background and for one of the pictures with Ashley in the form of a driver's liscence it says 5" 1

[Padraig: Well there you go, the Editor had them 5-1 and 5-0 and other sites were boosting these girls up to 5-3, lol]

well i think mary kate is taller than ash
Danace said on 10/Oct/06
Yeah..i watched the Interview..but everytime i searched it on the Internet It says Ash is 5'3" while Mk is 5'2".....i am so confused whats their real heights!
X said on 5/Oct/06
Pictures can sometimes be deceiving. In some pictures MK even appears to be taller than Ash.

In that Oprah interview, just before Ashley was asked the question of height, weren't they discussing MK's kissing scene and the fact that she had to stand on on box to kiss him due to the height difference? MKI mentioned something about being 5, 5 ft. 1 or so and then Oprah then asked Ashley if she was about an inch taller and that would make her 5 ft. 2 when Ashley made the comment about not being 5 ft. 2?

Ash likes to play up the shortness while MK would like to be taller. MK is just a bit over 5 ft. 0 and Ashley is a little bit over 5 ft. 1.
Amanda said on 7/Sep/06
I know they say they're an inch apart, but I see very little difference. I think Mary-Kate is 5' 0" and Ashley is 5' 0.5". They are 1/2" apart, it seems.
Anonymous said on 7/Jun/06
Believe it or not, at one point internet movie database listed MK Olsen's height as 5'6" and her sister, Ashley as 5'7"!!!!!!
