Hey Rob, my eye height right now, 2h after waking up is 175cm. And usually straight after waking up its around 176cm. What would you guess my height?
I usually go by 186cm.
185.4cm Elais said on 16/Sep/23
When looking straight ahead, my eye level is about 12cm or 4 3/4 below the top of my head. Is that still average?

Solid 5’1.

About 155cm.
Jewels said on 18/Mar/23
flat 5’1 & 102 lbs, her height can’t be anymore than that.
stegen said on 30/Aug/22
She's somewhere between 5'0" and 5'1".

I think she is a solid 5’1”.
Partisan said on 28/Dec/21
I think people saying she's even over 5'1.5 are either blind or not looking at accurately scaled photos of her. Not even a month ago she presented Oliva rodrigo (who is 5'4 on here) an award for songwriter of the year and she had to arch down just to hug Avril.

I realize that there was video of her saying she's 5'1" which has been taken into account. I wonder, though, when was that video from? Since her career started in her teens, she might not have been at her full adult height when she said that.
Editor Rob
I cannot recall exact date, but it could have been late teens.
I can see why many guess her near 5ft 2, because sometimes she does seem like she could be near it.
zinnia said on 6/Jun/20
I think she's 5"2, she's not that short.
Nik Ashton said on 7/Apr/20
Avril is short however she is not very short.
Axel Jagger said on 3/Dec/19
Where did she mention her height ?
Editor Rob
From a video many years ago she said she was like 5ft 1 and under 100 pounds. At the time there was a mention from a commentator, and of course I watched it.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Sep/19
Avril has just come up as one of my 'height twins'! She turned 35 just two days ago so I'd like to wish her a....

🎂💐🕯️ Belated Happy Birthday! 🕯️💐🎂

5ft1. 😁👍

Saw her standing by her tour bus yesterday, 5' 1" as always.

she’s very short looks 5’1

I like her music. She seems to be 1.55m.

One of the best singers! 155 cm
Nik said on 26/Jul/18
Convincingly 5'1"! Her honesty is admirable!
Oliver said on 26/Jul/18
The previous 5'1.5" listing is better. She may have rounded her height down to 5ft 1 as she is not height-concious.

Rob, you said you can see her anywhere from 5'1" to 5'1.5". Can you give her an upgrade to at least 5'1.25"?
MAD SAM said on 10/Jul/18
She’s taller than 4’11” Duff, 5’1.25” at 155.5 cm seems right

But now google says that her height is 157cm (5'2).I think she's 5 ft 1.5
Steven said on 25/Aug/17
Avril Lavigne has clearly said she 5ft 1inches so why hell are people saying she taller than that when she said she that her height you can't make her taller if she said that she that height then guess what she that height not 5ft 2 or 3 or whatever
I myself have met her in and meet and greet and I'm 5ft 9 and When she stood beside me she was tiny
Lovatic said on 24/Jun/17
Idk I think she could be anywhere from 5'0 - 5'2 but probably 5'0 or 5'1 like me lol
Kelly said on 24/Jun/17
She is 5,2 she does not look 5,1
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 17/Jun/17
5'1 nothing more.
gfhj said on 10/Jun/17
hot as hell in her prime. short or not makes no difference there. i say 5'2"
Jazz said on 30/May/17
Strange how her little sister Michelle Lavigne towers over Avril- maybe like 5 inches or so. Good thing she is not height conscious.
Bee123 said on 19/May/17
She is maybe 5'1 or just over the 5'0 I think 155cm
LM10-196 cm(6'5'') said on 15/Jan/17
Very beautiful indeed and quite tiny too.

Very beautiful
Arch Stanton said on 31/May/16
Yes, she's nice looking, but I get the impression that she would be extremely high maintenance and an emotional rollercoaster to live with. 5'1 tops.
sha said on 28/May/16
Still pretty even she stands 5ft and one only.
digling said on 27/May/16
I stood next to her at her meet&greet in 2014.. She was wearing slippers, i'm 5 10 and I can say she is 5ft 2 at least.. my friend is 5ft 1.5 and was noticeably shorter than her. To me, she was at least 5ft 2.5, but hey, who am I against several pics in different angles.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 25/Dec/15
Yes,this look better,real tiny as she say.
Rob other question.Do you think that Chad Kroeger is a legit 6'1 ?
I mean,he is supposedly to be 1ft taller than Avril but she generally reaches his up neck area and very near to chin.5'1 reaches very close to my shoulder and I'm not even 6'1
He claimed once 6'2 but it's a big stretch.I think 5'11 and change it's more accurate but that's just my opinion.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 20/Dec/15
Rob,why the 0,5 inch if she stated 5ft 1 flat ? Do you really think that she can pass as a bit taller ?
Editor Rob
I think at times she could look 5ft 1-1.5 range, but then in one video posted on here years ago she did just say 5ft 1, so maybe that's on the money.
Lara said on 18/Mar/14
If she has said she's 5"1, I pretty sure she's 5"1 though. If she were taller than that, she'd say it. As for people comparing her with Christina Aguilera...Xtina is no more than 5"0. Look at her next to a 5"1 Richie and 5"1 Kristen Bell and you'll see.
Brad said on 18/Jan/14
As she says. Real tiny.

I remember when kim kardashian was taller than her in a photo. 156cm. She is petite.
Van said on 13/Jun/13
Lol, the second comment(by TJ) says it all. She wouldn't downgrade her height, right? If she has stated her height as 5'1, then she is max 5'1.

5'2" max, 5'1" minimum . Although I agree with 5'1.5".
Caroline said on 2/Feb/13
Wow @Tina amazing post, thank you!
I always thought she's around 5'2 because she seems to have the same proportions as me, but looking at your pictures yeah she might be a little more.. But she always seems so small in pictures so I'm not sure she can be an average 5'4
Tina said on 16/Jan/13
She needs an UPGRADE!!

1. Next to Ashley Tisdale (5'2-5'3) and they're both without heels and Avril looks a bit taller than Ashley:

wow she's 156, it's okay i love her so much and she's the best for me,,,,i don't care about her height.......
TJ said on 15/Jun/12
If Avril has given her height as 5ft 1, why go above it? If 5ft 1.5 she would have been more likely to round up than down.
Heightgirl said on 7/Nov/11
Avril claims 5f1 and she looks 5f1 too so there is no arguing that from me lol Lavigne wears docs a lot and that might only add approx 2 inches to her height bringing her up to 5f3 with her shoes on. As for Kim, she always seems to wear huge heels with big platforms, so you can't judge Avril's height on that because they are not wearing similar shoes at all.
Joseph said on 1/Oct/11

Erm, 5'1 is not average height (to the person who said it was) - try like 5'4 or 5'5 ... lol.

@Melissa im 12 and 1.58m my friends r 1.61m and higher ur right shes great

Wow, I didn't know that I was slightly taller then she is. I'm about 5'2" and 5"3' And just recently I was told that I look like her. I'm not even sure how though.
Aaron said on 2/Apr/11
Awww! I never realized she was so tiny! 5 years ago, when I was 12, I thought she seemed tall. Weird how our own height changes our perception. I'm easily 16 inches taller than her now.
Brad said on 14/Mar/11
5' 1" max, Kim takes off the heels she'll still have her.
Shaun said on 11/Mar/11
miri says on 14/Feb/11
personally I think 5 ft 1 is an average hight for a women

Mmm in some Asian country maybe...
Shaun said on 11/Mar/11
Mmm maybe you're right

Click Here

Kim looks barely an inch taller and we can't see her footwear in that photo. I still think 5'1" flat would be more realistic though, isn't that also what she claimed?
Shaun said on 11/Mar/11
Rob is it really possible for Kim Kardashian to only be half an inch taller accounting for heels? Accounting for footwear I see a 1-1.5 difference still. I think you list Avril at 5'1" flat, that makes more sense.. Anyway not that I care much...

Editor Rob
I had a glance at those heels and they are massive, if she's not getting at least 4.5 actual inches I'd be surprised, even close to 5 wouldn't surprise me
Shaun said on 11/Mar/11

5 ft 1 flat MAX. In Doc Martens she was owned by Kim Kardashian by a good 3 inches and Kardashian wasn't exactly wearing huge heels either. She makes Kim Kardashian looks average height.

I've met her in person actually but anyways she's gotta be at least 5'2 cause when we took the photo she could barely reach my shoulder and I'm 5'10

hi first she is actually 5ft 3inchs , nearly 5ft 4inchs, and im only 13 nearly 14 and im 5ft 2inchs so i would say she is about average
emmie said on 25/Jan/11
though she's short and i am 163, it is okay! avril is still in my celebrity list! for real, my friends are shorter than her and if you look for japanese girls, most of them are much shorter than avril
sara said on 16/Nov/10
ok. peoples. Some of you arent excatly sure is shes 5'1 or 5'2. Then its good the title of this .. thing (?) is Avril Lavigne heigh: 5 ft 1.5 etc.
I think shes beautiful. and as someone else in here said "beauty over height"

Btw samuel. Youre not that taller than her lol
boswell said on 22/May/09
Just stumbled on this site and already I'm hooked. I have spent about 45 minutes with Avril Lavigne when she made a surprise visit to a tourist spot in Toronto where I used to work. My first impression was a combination of, stunned by her beauty, particularly her mouth, and stunned by how much star power and charisma was packed into such a tiny frame. What a little gem! She is very petite. I have a photo taken with her. I am 5' 8" and she is much shorter. I'll always remember the occasion. Stars are different.

i think avril is one of the finest ever.ive seen fans curse alanis out.
Brad said on 13/Apr/09
Avril played a casino room the last time in Vegas. She played to 18,000 at the MGM before. Crash n burn career....not as bad as Alanis who was an opening act last time out. The industry was stunned.
J-D said on 11/Apr/09
C. - You're crazy....Avril is stunningly beautiful. None of the other singers you mentioned come close to Avril's beauty. Christina is hot, but not as hot as Avril. And for Kylie and Shakira.......c'mon, you're kidding.....right? And Avril's teeth are sexy and her body is perfect. I dont know who you're hanging around with, but I know lots of men and women who think Avril is beautiful.
lily said on 24/Mar/09
rob, when u mention someones height, do u mention their morning height or evening???

Editor Rob
think of mid-day, some listings might be more accurate for morning but generally I don't think straight out of bed heights.
marcus said on 5/Mar/09
i meet her and did some surcurity for her while she was visiting and she was shorter then me and im 5'3" i thought she was 5' or less
kmac said on 3/Mar/09
her teeth are one thing that made me think she was hot in the first place. i like them.
glass said on 4/Feb/09
I delivered an acoustic guitar for her to sign for some charity... 5'1.5" is about right. She was really sweet.
Diane said on 30/Jan/09
5ft1.5 sounds about good; I'd personally go with 5'2 more, but i have nothing to back that up. I'm about 5'2 and have been since 11, and i did grow about .25 of an inch around 18. So actually yea you can. And also I'm 5'2 and in most chairs if i sit back my feet don't reach the ground. Short people look short; people always think we're like 5 foot nothing at i think she kinda rides on that. 5'2ish!!

"Christina beats her only because of Avril's teeth." Maybe that's why I hear such harsh comments about her looks-- and I do mean always on her looks before anything else. Which is why I'm quite surprised people here actually have nice things to say about her. Sad to hear her being self-conscious about her teeth though. I've seen far, far worse, but I guess people just like to pick on her for some reason or the other. I don't think she's ugly or anything, just not drop dead gorgeous.

"There's plenty of women far more attractive than Avril, tall or short. I don't know many men or women who find her beautiful in the least-- I usually hear quite harsh comments about her "beauty" or lack thereof. Petite songstresses like Kylie, Christina, Shakira, etc. hold ringlets around her in the looks department, IMO."

Disagree. I'll give you Shakira. But Avril has the best eyes of the bunch and overall is very nearly equal to Christina and slightly above Kylie. Christina beats her only because of Avril's teeth. Avril is going to get dental work because she is self-conscious about it. So she only goes up from here. We'll see the results and I might end up putting her above Christina.
someone said on 1/Dec/08
jeez, and i thought i was short! i'm 5'2. a lot of people make fun of me because i'm so short :*(, but i see a lot of celebrities like avril, hilary duff and shakira who are all smaller then me

She's around 5'1" and no taller. Many pictures and camera footage don't make her to be any taller than that. Unless she's in high heels or platforms.
Do Hyeon said on 30/Oct/08
Really, are you sure about this?/?!1
Zoe said on 26/Oct/08
If she stated herself she is 5'1" that has to be her actual height. Unless she adds that extra Hollywood bogus inch that many people do. She looks so tiny anyways, still has the body and look of a 13 year old.
janice said on 13/Oct/08
Around 5'1 to 5'2 it is. Nothing much less and definitely nothing more than that! Love her, this site NEEDS a photo of her!

im 5''8';i usually get remarks like, ''oh your're tall'' or, '' woow you're tall'' its kind of anoying but imean i never thought that avril was that short in all her videos she looks really tall;like 5''8' or something wow. i guess looks can lie, huh!

SOTUdc said on 15/Sep/08
I'm a 6'8" tall male living in my home town of Washington DC. Where most power people who come,are sent to my city are shorter then average. It's not bad being a tall guy. But there is a shortage of tall women I can talk to and dance the salsa with (punz intended). It's just that it is a short world after all. I bang my head on door lentals... Have trouble sitting in any public transportation. For gat PT I have trouble in my own car. Finding clothes... forget about it. I go into shoe stores just to hear then laugh about how the salesa staff has never seen size 16 shoes. Have to order clothes online. Some New Englander has my size sweat shirt. And since the re-sizing of clothes sizez so Americans don't feel as fat as we are. My pants and sleeve length have gone from Orangutan to Giant Squid. One can always cut off exess matrerial and make something look OK. But adding material make thinks look as if ones talor also does work for Dorothy's friend the Scarecrow. Man talking about clothes sounds really gay... Not that there's anything wrong with that. ;~)

"She's not 5' 3". Maybe in a Glenn picture."
Which is why Glenn always crouched down and hugged the shorter female celebs so as not to reveal how close she was to him in height...
Madison said on 24/Aug/08
No! Avril is around 5'1 when I had VIP tickets to one of her concerts with my family we all stood beside her and my mom is 5'2 and Avril was about an inch shorter than my mom and my sister who is 5'3 was about 2 inches taller than her so she gotta be 5'1.
Brad said on 17/Aug/08
5' 1.5" is close enough. Everybody kinda said in unison when she came out onstage when I saw her: "She's so tiny". She's not 5' 3". Maybe in a Glenn picture.
runt said on 12/Aug/08
What?? 5-3+shoes=the average barefoot woman. The fact that her feet couldn't reach the floor off that interview chair would be so impossible LOL!
IrishGirl said on 7/Aug/08
She's 5ft 3in
On an iterview they measured her without shoes on and they said she's 5ft 3
That's still short...i'm short too lol im 5ft 2 i like bein short though theres nothing wrong with it:)

Editor Rob
where and when was this...such a thing would be of great interest here!
runt said on 19/Jul/08
In fact, I'm beginning to think that 5-2ish is the Hollywood females' version of the male 5-7ish. 5-7ish has been known for a long time as the shortest 'respectable' height for a male celeb, therefore even the 5-4 guys try to claim 5-7ish. With females, I think 5-2ish is the shortest 'normal' height. I wouldn't say 'respectable' for females because they don't have as many casting or popularity problems because of below average height like the males do.
runt said on 19/Jul/08
I now think that anything over 5-1 flat just can't be right. That's because I just watched an interview where her feet didn't touch the floor off of a standard guest chair. I think any guest chair that wouldn't accomodate a 5-2 woman (even if she has shorter-than-average legs for a 5-2 woman), is very badly designed. Therefore she's gotta be 5-1.0 MAX and something like a 4-10.5 MIN. I've never noticed any female celebs who are know to be 5-2ish not be able to reach the floor before. I could be wrong though...

im 14 and im 5'6":( all these guys are always like "i luv short girls" and "short girls are hot" and it makes me feel soooo ugly! i wish i was like 5'4" or 5'3". short girls are so lucky. i mean some girls in my grade (9th) are like 5'10" all the way to 6'2"(!!!) but most of them are 5' to 5'4" and i feel like such a giant. i love finding girls who are taller than me because i always think "yes! finally someone taller!" since alot of my friends are shorter than me, if only by a little. some are taller, but most are all the guys seem to like them. i h8 it:(
mizori said on 16/Jul/08
im pretty tall for a girl-5'6", but alot of guys are alot taller than me, which makes me happy :)also i think avril isnt any taller than 5'2". shes really pretty, and i luv her songs. im really self conscious about my height though because guys always say that they like short girls :(
Shirin said on 12/Jul/08
Yes I think so, but in another site its mentioned that she is 5'3!!!
John said on 24/Jun/08
I think its so cute that she picked a guy thats short. Deryck is 5' 4.5" and I'm sure she had her pick of guys that are tall. I'm 5'6" and i think shorts girls a extra hot to me with 5'2" being ideal.
Lex said on 7/Jun/08
She's definitely in the 5'1 to 5'2" range because I saw some sort of ID card of hers online a long time ago and it said he height in centimeters. It's not quite 5'2". I, personally, am 5'1.5", so I think that's cool that she and I are the same height.

I'm pretty sure 5'1 to 5'1.5 is correct.
And i agree to the previous posters: This site needs a picture to prove it ;)

the average for american male is 5'9". 6' is actually signifigantly above average.

You might be right that super models are 5'10 and up with a few exceptions, but there are plenty of working models (maybe not super) who are between 5-8 and 5-10.

But I'll take Avril over almost every supermodel out there (maybe 2 or 3 exceptions).

You may be right, but I was told by my doctor that the average hight for an adult white or black American male is 5'10" to 6' and for hispanic American men 5'9" to 5'10". Again I'm not arguing with you, just going by what I was told and what I've read and if you are right, at least now I can say I'm average height (5'9.5") :)

As for super models Tyra Banks on ANTM has said on several occaisions the average height for a super model is 5'10" but you are right, there are plenty of super models under that. Heidi Klum I've read is about 5'9" and Kate Moss has been billed at 5'6".

And yes I'd also take Avril over any super model aswell!

The height about her sounds right, in the higher 5'1 or lower 5'2 range, NEVER 5'3.
A picture here would be great ...

I never pictured Avril over 5'2" and I always figured she was more likely around 5'1" or so. Either way Avril is Hot (just like her song says)!!!

Anyways ladies truth is most men, myself included, prefer shorter, petite women contrary to popular belief so don't feel too bad if your on the shorter side. I mean the average height for an american male is 5'10 to 6' and the minimum height for a super model is 5'10 with a few exeptions and most guys don't like dating women who are as tall or taller than them.

its acceptable to be short as a women.short women and tall women are attactive.not too many women want 5-2 men.but 4-11 and up women are fine by me.up to 5-10 maybe,since im on the shorter side of average.
Amy said on 28/Apr/08
Iv always been small and obviously still am lolz n to be honest ive never actually hated it neva wanted to be any taller, unless your actually abnormally short then why worry? i think its actually nicer to be small. im about avrils height mayb a bit taller im 5'2 and im about the same size but she looks super thin nowdays even though shes always been slim :S so now id say i was prob bigger then her but im only a size 8. i think she makes people proud that there small but i dont think she should be this thin aswell bcoz it will inspire people like me who are naturally small to be even smaller, but only coz she looks good with it aswell and people think if there that thin theyl look that good but really they look healthy but still small, i think shes way to thin i heard she was 6 n a arf stone a full grown woman cnt possibly be that naturally right?

She may be taller since she got married. I still remember in 2002 - 2003, she was always the first person, I had to see, in a crowd because she's too tiny (about 5'- 5'1). However, it's hard to believe that she grows up. Beside 4'11 Shakira, she's 5'1 as always.

littlemissmay: I don't know what part of the country you live in, maybe it has a high average height. But according to the bell curve, 5' for a woman is just as prevalent in this country as 5'8" for a woman. For every 5-8 model there is a 5' doll, for every 5-9 model there is a 4-11 doll, for every 5-7 tall chick there is a 5-1 short chick, for every 5-6er there is a 5-2er, for every 5-5er there is a 5-3er. 5-4 is dead on average.

punkboy957 said on 6/May/07
Avril is obviously above 5'0, because herhusband Deryck Whibley is 5'5.5 and he's not 6 inches taller than her, she generally where's Converse Old School, which adds only about .5 inches generally, depending on the shoe, sometimes it's only .4 or even .3, so she's actually 5'1.5 as they say, though with shoes she's around 162.

she looks 5'2''-5'2.5''. not taller. but 5'1'' is too small. becuase she doesnt always wear high heels but flat heels sometimes. so 5'2'' is obvious.

I'm not so sure how I feel about everyone comparing her height to her husband's. His page says 5'4.5" but I'm just not convinced he's that tall. The guy is constantly walking around in these ridiculous looking platform-type shoes. Even when he got married, his groomsmen wore black dress shoes, and he was wearing those ugly platform things! This man is obviously self concious about his height. It really wouldn't suprise me if he told people he was an inch or two taller than he actually is. Not hard-core evidence or anything, but i just don't think he's a reliable comparison point.
Flory said on 9/Apr/07
I don't understand you guys! She said she was 5 ft 1!! She was already a blond sweety then, she was over 20 years so she didn't grow since then. Rob she is 5 ft 1. Come one, you heard her. That's it... Why do you want her to be taller then she is! And by the way deryck is short to, he is like 5 ft their kids are gonna be small to. So everyone come on stop saying; No she is 5 ft 2 or taller.
Well, technically, if you apply a standard equation to the image, you can create an almost exact accurate estimation to the hights of both figures. It's really rather simple...infact, I have a whole web page dedicated to it as i feel the argument is so incredibly Of course, with the simpler minds it's 'open to interpretation' but with the hard core fan know what to do.
ThisGirl said on 4/Apr/07
Check it out... Deryck is supposedly 5'4"-5"... they're both wearing flat shoes in these photos, walking right next to each other. It's obvious that she's only about 2 inches shorter than him... which means that she's 5'2"-3".

it's funny how people argue over the exact height of short people... no one seems to ever dispute the heights of average people or taller people. I am 5'3 without shoes - but I wear high heels all the time - so then I get accused of being under 5 feet tall. can't we just let Avril be short and cute and leave it at that?
Anonymous said on 13/Feb/07
Franco, that comment isn't exactly "stupid" Sure, Avril wasn't barefooted, but I'd venture to bet that the person who met her at the TRL studio wasn't barefoot either. If somebody says they're 5'2", that probably means they're 5'2" barefoot, not with shoes. So if Avril, with shoes, was taller than somebody wearing shoes that's 5'2" barefoot, then it's reasonable to think that she might be 5'3"-5'4" barefoot.

I'm thinking she is getting more than 2" out of the heels with Bruce.. probaby closer to 3".

But I agree the chick is about 5'2", maybe slightlet under, maybe slightly over.. 5'2" is safe.

tony said on 17/Jan/07
woops i have to correct myself. turns out you were right on this one glenn :]. next to 6'0 bruce (in 2006 photos) she's wearing high heels and is barely past his shoulder. knowing celebrities if anything bruce would list his height as being taller or would wear elevators so if he was smaller then 6'0 at the awards itd only mean that avril is even shorter. i guess in the photo with bow wow we can say she may have had high heels on. i cant make sense of the photographs of her and perez though, unless perez's height is mislabelled by some 3 inches.
tony said on 17/Jan/07
i agree avril may have once upon a time been around 5'2 but shes definitely grown since. it may be irregular for a girl to grow past the age of 16 but it happens. presley is listed at 5'2 + 3 inch heels in that photo and shes only got tops 2 1/2 inch advantage. that'd make her what? 5'3ish which is an average height for girls. unlike guys girls have a shorter range in their height differences. in my senior year high school shoot the girls standing in a line arranged shortest to tallest looked virtually the same girl to girl obviously between shortest and tallest theres a significant difference. 5'2-5'7 is probably the range for 90% of girls some people have major heightism issues relating to women that posted here. but yes to reiterate another commenter i think avril needs an 'upgrade' to 5'3 5'4

Yes, UNK, I was trying to say that she is 5'2" according to the pictures.

Actually the flip flops give her .5 inch max.
In my opinion she is no less than 5'2" but no more than 5'3"
UNK said on 2/Jan/07
He has her at 5'1.5" not 5'1".. maybe she's 5'2". All the evidence here lately is proving that she's no way bigger than 5'3". 5'4" claims are nuts. A 5'4" woman in hollywood heels (4-5") looks quite tall. No way Avril is in the range of Lindsay Lohan (5'4" ish).

Seacrest is no bigger then 5'7", and her flip-flops are giving her an inch.

Whatever though - I don't care, make her what you all want.. she looks 5'2" to me.

Alex, she's said 5'1" once, not "numerous times"
She is 5'2". I have received an autograph from her.
I remember thinking when I met her "Wow, she's not as short as people make her out to be"
Alex said on 20/Dec/06
She has said 5'1 numerous times and I doubt she's taller than what she says nor do I think she is shorter. She does look 5'1 to me actually,

P.S. I definitely have to agree with GangstaEmma. Every person I know claims a certain height as if they measure themselves constantly. The truth is that most people are not exactly sure.
Not too long ago I thought I was 5'4"... I was convinced that I was at least 5'3" and even had that height put on my drivers license. Than a few months ago my boyfriend decided to measure me just for the heck of it... turns out I'm only 5'2".

Think how many other people say the same yet the truth is that they really have no clue and are probably just guessing/relying on old information.

UNK - Those interviews and whatnot are from like 5 years ago. She was only 17 when she got famous... people grow and gain weight overtime. She definitely has gained about 10lbs since her first album came out... and she's also obviously grown probably at least an inch or two.

I'd have to say I'm with Emma on this one. I have too seen Avril Lavigne upclose when getting an autograph. We were both in converse, level ground and exactly the same height. I am exactly 5'2"

I'm not saying I want her bigger than she is. I'm sorry if I overreacted. All I am saying is that I know for a fact that I am 5'2", I have met her, and we were the same height. So I suppose I am the only one on this site who knows her real height. And why are you saying our claims are ridiculous? As surprising as it may sound, a lot of people don't know their real heights because they guess or just THINK they're that height. You have know idea how many times I've seen people tell me they were 5 feet tall and then the next day in gym class they end up being like 5'3"? And how about Britney Spears that time? She once claimed she was 5'2" in a cyber interview and she's actually 5'4.5"?

GangstaEmma - Nobody is downgrading her. Rob has her listed at this height because 5'1" came out of her mouth on film... look below and watch it. Maybe she is close to 5'2" and still says 5'1", who knows. What we do know is everyone putting her at 5'3"+ really doesn't want to bother with the facts. Everytime I instruct to watch Avril say her height on film, they point us to some ridiculous pic or snl clip and start the guessing again.

It's offensive that so many of you can't believe that the girl is in the 5'1"/5'2" range. Millions of women are, it's a pretty common height for a female. She is a very petite, attractive singer.. why do you want her bigger than she is?

Leah - It's very uncommon for a girl to grow past 17/18 years old. Most stop by 16. Males on the other hand usually stop around 21, some up to 25.

Yes, and the video was shot about 2 years back when she was 19, she might of grown since then. Also you can tell she's bending a knee in the video which takes away about 2 inches because at the end of the video she stands up straighter, which gives Snoop about a foot on her or possibly 13 inches but nevertheless she's gotta be more than what she's listed.
GangstaEmma said on 8/Dec/06
haha idiots. i think i trust my judgement next to your using pics to try to find out her height. stop downgrading already. I HAVE MET AVRIL. I AM EXACTLY 5'2" I JUST MEASURED. AVRIL AND I WERE THE SAME HEIGHT! I am emailing pictures to rob as we speak.
UNK said on 8/Dec/06
Sorry Leah, Snoop has at least a foot on her. 5'11" Fallon looks to have close to 10" on her.

Can anybody confirm that her mother is actually that short? If Avril is around 5'2", her mother looks like she can't be more than 5' (based on the wedding photo). Any other pictures of the two of them together?
UNK said on 8/Dec/06
OMG - You guys are insane. The girl gives her height all the time. She says around 5'1". And recently agreed to 5'2" in a cyber interview. There is no mystery.

Follw the instructions here (which was posted a few months ago)

If you go to and you register at Crossbonez (it's free) you can see a couple of video's. In the video "Killing Time - Part 6: Show time" she says something like "I like shopping in Japan, cause everyone is so small there. I'm like... 5'1" and a li'll under 100 pounds."

[Editor Rob: thanks element, I heard that now, yes 5ft 1...]

I agree with Robb on the Cinder block wall thing. I was in my school gymnasium the other day, and after reading his comment the day before, I measured the blocks with my fingers and they were for sure 8 inches tall each
Leah said on 5/Dec/06
Go on and search "Avril Lavigne SNL" In the video she is standing next to 6'3.5" Snoop Dogg and only appears 11" to a foot shorter. She's in sneakers too. So about 5'3.5" maybe a little less?
marta said on 3/Dec/06
Click Here , and this pic is with Ashley Johnson who's 5'6, and they look about the same height, so Avril's got to be 5'4.
Tisha said on 3/Dec/06
Avril is definetely 5'4 or 5'3, just look at this pic with Catalina Sandino who's 5'7-5'8.

Avril is definetely 5'4-5'3.

I swear by Converse to eliminate my height. 1/2" is right, maybe less. She wears heels now. 5' 2".
