I have an episode of 'Marple' on in the background, and I recognise one of the young lady stars. It is Carey Mulligan, a name I usually associate with blockbuster Hollywood movies like 'Drive', 'Shame' and the unbelievably shocking 'Never Let Me Go'. Yes, it really is a young Carey, playing alongside Lawrence Fox, Mel Smith, Patricia Hodge and Timothy Dalton. It is SO worth keeping these Agatha Christie detective matinees on, as background entertainment if, like me, you're not too crazy about them. It's unfailingly worthwhile to feast your eyes on the cast, if you have nothing better to do!

Carey must be 20/21 here, as it hails from 2006 and is called 'The Sittaford Mystery'. While making myself a cup of tea next door, I could hear a seance going on; what is it about the subject that women writers seem to find so irresistible? Anyway, I can see Carey sitting down a good deal for this feature-length 'Marple', but I have been able to compare her to Ryan Gosling in 'Drive', who has to be around 6ft+ and Michael Fassbender in 'Shame', when she played his emotionally disturbed sister, and seemed about 5" shorter than Fassbender's approximate height of 5ft11, tops. An ideal 5" male/female brother and sister height difference, which I'm afraid, rarely holds true in real life at all!

5ft6 is what I shall settle with for Carey. I have seen her written up as a bit more (170cm), but if anything, I would have given her a bit less than even 5ft6!

She's a strong 5'6" and Keira's a weak 5'7".

marcus mumford shrinks to bruce springsteen height on stage. Closer to 5'10 than 6 umm 50/50 bet.

Well if you think about it the shoes give around 4 inches of height making both girls around 5'11. Andrew being 5ft10.5 is wearing 3-3.5cm dress shoes so he is around 5'11.5 standing height here so the listings are evidently spot on.

Isn't Oscar Isaac around 1,72cm? How is to possible that he, with a shoe with 3cm heels or so, is the same height as Carey, who should be at least 1,77cm with high heels? I think she's shorter than 5'7.

Olivia Williams is 5'8.5, Rob has pic with her. And you do not know what shoes they're wearing underneath those floor length gowns. Carey is 5'6.5.

She is two inches shorter than 5'7.5" Olivia Williams. Why do these people lie about height? It is so bizarre!

Rob have you noticed her heels are always huge. Keira Knightley is wearing the conventional normal heels. In great gatsby premiers she is not much taller than Tobey Maguire. But in Inside Lewyn Davis she towers over Oscar Isaac. I think the latter does not wear elevator shoes.
[Editor Rob: she does wear quite sizeable ones yeah]
Realist said on 2/Jan/14
Looks 168,5'6 usual practice.Garfield is no more than 5'9.5(that too not sure),listing for Keira Knightly is close(almost 5'7), her heels are smaller in the pic above.

rob, what are your thoughts on marcus mumford's(her husband's) height? he gets listed at 6'3...looks quite "tall", but then again he often wears thick heeled cowboy boots. maybe a solid 6 footer?

[Editor Rob: he might be a bit over 6ft , but 6ft 3 doesn't look likely]

Fassbender still looked a bit taller than Mulligan on heels, and Garfield doesn't even reach 5'11'' when he's pulling out his giraffe's neck. Nevertheless, many posters have already suspected that Fassbender might not be a legitimate 5'11'' and more in the 5'10'' range.

The picture proves that high heels don't give you the height of the heel, those heels would be almost 5 inches making her 6ft but she is still slightly shorter than 5ft 10 Garfield. Its strange that in similar shoes she is a bit taller than 5ft 11 Fassbender, maybe Garfield more 5ft 11 and Fassbender 5ft 10
Willy said on 28/Aug/12
Based on this picture alone, 5'7'' is unlikely for Keira and impossible for Carey. Mulligan 5'5.5'', Knightley 5'6'', and Garfield 5'10''.

How much added height are both Mulligan(169cm) and Fassbender(180cm) from there respective footwear in this photo.

Having watched, 'Blink', I would say she is 5'8", 1.73 m, 173 cm. She is extremly determined and dedicated in respect to her art. She is an excellent actress as well as a gorgeous girl.

She's around 1" shorter than Kiera Knightley (Listed here 5'7")
So yeah, 5'6 max

Click Here

And that makes Shia Labeouf (listed here 5'9") a 5'7" max.
Jase said on 7/Apr/11
clearly the evidence with í‡arey tells all Shia is no taller than 5'7" I worked on the first transformers and I was an inch taller at 5'8" and he was wearing large boots. He needs a downgrade. But it's just height and I've never seen height affect an Actors performance. 5'7"s and 5'8"s carry their height well on screen.

Carey is 5'7 I met her several times on movie sets.

there's a picture of carey with ema roberts who's statted at about 5'2. There was a big difference between the two. they were both in heels about the same height. I think carey is about 5'7 indeed.
Jess said on 14/Nov/10
In all of those picture's of carey & keira, she is slightly shorter than her. Being 169cm is just a tad bit under 5'7..This listing is perfect for her.
