I remember seeing her for the first time in "Snake Eyes" in the late 90s. She seemed way taller in that...I would have guessed 5'8. I was blown away by how gorgeous she was too. She's one of those women that I bet will still be hot at 60 (I think she's in her 40s now). Anybody see her in Sin City? My eyes almost fell out of my head....

In Sucker Punch looks similar to Jena Malone, she is 164 or 165 cm so its pretty close.

She looked a lot taller than this in Snake Eyes. Whatever her height, boy, is she gorgeous. Comes across as smart and thoughtful too in her roles.

correction: After looking up some info on Ben Stiller, and seeing that he is at most, 5' 6", then Gugino must be really short. Case in point, wide shots of she and Stiller together in "Night Museum". Take a look at those heels folks. Three and a half inch spikes...stilts....and she's still shorter than Stiller. If he's 5'6", and she's at least an inch, if not more, shorter than Stiller in those shots, and she's wearing 3 inch or better heels, then tops, she's five one. Betcha. Also betcha I'd like to meet her. My kinda gal. Short, cute as hell. Great eyes. Oh well, I can dream, right? All I can say is....Mickey Rourke, you lucky bas.........

I can just about guarantee you that Carla is 5'2" or shorter. Case in point: "Sin City". Compare to the other actors around her, look how she's shot, and watch the way she walks when the shots are taken from roughly the mid calf up...she's wearing heels, at least three inches. People don't walk like that in bare feet, and you can tell the difference in her walk from shot to shot, whether in close, or full frame (when you can see she's barefoot). Lots of tricks were employed to make her appear taller.
In her first scene, where she wakes up in bed, and you see her next at the dresser bureau, getting her gun, then walking away, watch how she walks....she's definitely on heels. Next, she's in the bathroom with Mickey Rourke (who is claimed to be 5'11", but I can tell you he's at least two inches shorter than that) Gugino is wearing TALL heels, to come up just under HIS height in the closeups of them face to face.
Next, there's a shot of her, through the bathroom door, putting her robe on, and she's barefoot....if you look at her legs, and size her up to the sink in the foreground, she's short. Her legs are not long legs, as they appear to be in shots that are taken from above her feet.
In the scene where she and Rourke's characters escape from their prison at the "farm", there's a shot of Mickey on his knees, in front of her, appearing absolutely gigantic to her. She's behind, in barefeet, which fits the scene previous to this. Look at her in full frame. She is very short. They make Rourke look very large by placing him in front of her, and shooting up toward him. Forced perspective. His character is supposed to be large, but it doesn't mesh with the bathroom scene. Something's up there.
Also, if you have the DVD, check the extras, and the deleted scene of Gugino with Bruce Willis. Willis is listed at anywhere from 5' 10" to 6' tall. In the wide shot of them walking together in the prison, you'll note she's wearing at LEAST three inch heels....stilts....and she barely brushes Willis' shoulder.
No way she's any more than five two, and possibly shorter. She's very short.
Damned cute, too. Heh heh.
Oh, and one more note on this: Watch her in "Night Museum" with Ben Stiller. Stiller is around 5' 8", tops, and she's shorter...AND wearing three inch heels in all the full shots. Trust me, she's short.

Consistant, on reel.com said "I'm 5ft 5" aswell.

I think she probably is a bit shorter. Take a look back at her Spin City days, especially when they show those hallway scenes, she looks about Michael J. Fox's height.
