Charlize Theron is 5’10 177CM Tall was listed 5’9 3/4 Range she is a good actress movie Fast and Furious or Hancock in a Action Movie, Model
wingwalker1 said on 1/Sep/23
According to the listing she should be 4.4cm's shorter than Vin Diesel - she certainly doesn't seem to be in that picture, and boost from footwear is most likely very comparable, and that's with VD standing as straighter than humanly possible.

Tbh she's not much shorter than Vin Diesel...

She's 177.3cm (5'9.8), and
Vin is 179-180cm range (5'10.5 - 5'10.9)

If Vin took those stupid heel shoes off, he would be an inch taller than her.

@ Daniel - Not that I have anything against Vin Diesel, but my compliment was aimed at Charlize!
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Mar/23
I’m watching Charlize’s film Bombshell and the language is so hilarious that I’ve been laughing my @rse off! The movie is strewn with big names, and it looks like a candidate for my Amazon basket!

On a far more serious note, it’s incredibly revealing about the deplorable and derisory things Trump 💨 has said about women. They’re even worse than I’ve read.

Charlize gets a tall, elegant 5ft10.

Charlize’s photo with Vin Diesel is stunning!


Vin looks ridiculous with his classic big boots, the platform looks like a red plunger

She's more like 5ft9 and half
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/May/22
I think she’d have 2in over Cameron Diaz
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Mar/22
If you wish to compare Charlize with Liv Tyler, check out the Tom Hanks-penned film ‘That Thing You Do!’

Both model girls turned actresses star in it.

5ft9.75. 💿💐
khaled taban 5ft9 said on 26/Dec/21
5ft9 1/2 is better
Sergey said on 20/Nov/21
Sean Penn's height is 171-172 maximum, so she cannot be higher than 175
Leesheff85 said on 25/Oct/21
Maybe take her height down to 5ft 9 1/2 rob as she has claimed it herself and you said there is an inch between her and Nicole kidman. 5ft 9 would be more accurate in my opinion but 5ft 9 1/2 would be the absolute tallest
Slim 6'1.75 said on 4/Oct/21
Weak 5’10”

Tall lady, good proportions

She looks like a model
joshua braden said on 14/Sep/21
Saw her in 08 at Hancock premier she was a solid 5'9 .maybe in shoes a weak 5'10

💐🎂🎈 A belated Happy Birthday to Charlize, who turned 46 three days ago.

Let's hope she had a great day. 🎈🎂💐
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Aug/21
@ Elene - Charlize passes for quite a bit taller because of her slender frame.
Mind you, when she piled on the pounds for her award-winning role as Aileen Wuornos for the film 'Monster', she stilled looked very tall, but she was starring with the tiny Christina Ricci!

5ft10. 😄👌💐
Elene said on 9/Aug/21
More like 5’9.5
Tall Sam said on 30/Jul/21
I think 5’9.5” is a pretty honest claim for her, I don’t think she hits quite a full 5’10” after seeing her in many roles. She is often cast around (and IRL) dates fairly short men in comparison to herself.
Leesheff85 said on 29/Mar/21
I just cant buy she is 9.5 inches taller than christina ricci in monster. If christina is 5ft 0.5 then Charlize must be around 5ft 8.5
Lawrence099 said on 24/Jan/21
She’s 5’9.5 as she claimed
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 15/Jan/21
Looks pretty tall in Old Guard I'd give her 5'10
stefkat said on 6/Jan/21
Rob how tall is she with the heels in the pic with Vin above ? And how tall is he with the boots
Editor Rob
she should be gaining 3 inches there, he might be getting 1.6 range, his boots aren't that huge.
slim 6'1 said on 2/Jan/21
177 range
Andrea said on 23/Oct/20
She does claim 5'9.5: Click Here Of course you could always say she's more 5'9.5-5'9.75 than say 5'9.25-5'9.5, but somewhere around that mark definitely looks very believable for her.
Editor Rob
Theron could be similar to Natasha henstridge both could be girls who are 5ft 9.5-9.75 range
Leif said on 1/Oct/20
Rob why don't youbgive her full 5'10 since a quarter or even half or 3/4 inch isn't jardy anything at all by most stsndards? Even 1 to two inches isn't much of a difference.
Editor Rob
From all I've seen of her, I can believe the just under 5ft 10 rather than a full 5ft 10
Slim 6'1" said on 30/Sep/20
Robs listing is fine
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Aug/20
🎂🎈💐 Happy Birthday Charlize! 💐🎈🎂

Many congratulations to Charlize Theron, who celebrates her 4️⃣5️⃣th Birthday today. Have a wonderful Birthday Charlize and a terrific New Year! 🍀🌹

Her Birthday guess from me is 5ft10. XXX

She says I'm 5-10, 5-9...


What about 5'9 5/8?
Editor Rob
The 5ft 9.5 figure appeared in news articles a year before celebheights, see 2003 article. Interesting she was doing ballet and said her knees were f****, like an 80 year olds.
Tall Sam said on 29/Jul/20
She is honest about her height and well listed. Near Tom Hardy, even giving her the benefit of being in heels, though you could get the impression she'd be around an inch taller. However, the less than 5'11" listed Jason Bateman could still look the same height as her when she was in heels, though I guess in bigger heels she managed to edge him.
Jam Cherry said on 27/May/20
177.5 cm fits her perfectly At 5’10”

I don't think she has a bad posture 😍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Mar/20
@ Arch Stanton - I have seen neither 'The Last Face' nor 'Sweet November', and I'm not thinking of hunting them down any time in the near future! I prefer to stick to the likes of 'Monster', 'The Devil's Advocate' and just lately, 'Dark Places', which was another good character study of hers. I remember the chemistry of her and Keanu from 'The Devil's Advocate' and I expect it would carry on into any other films they make together.

Personally, I enjoy seeing stars, especially women, with as many different hair colours and styles as possible - whatever their roles call for. I find it interesting, as indeed I do finding out what I look like with different hair colours and lengths. Those days are over - I'm not doing anything to jeopardize my long hair, which has just started dangling into my mugs of tea! You'll get superfans on any star's website, and I doubt Charlize would have the time nor the inclination to get involved in an argument over her hairstyle! 😂 I thought it rather suited her; she has the sort of face that can carry off any style. Her hair was long and blonde in 'Monster', remember, a film for which she piled on the pounds and messed up her skin, but won multi awards for her awesome performance.

Always great to chat with you, Arch, and I bid you a good - and safe - weekend! Cheers, Sandy XX 😁👍

5ft9.75. 😄💐
Arch Stanton said on 19/Mar/20
Have you not seen "The Last Face" Sandy LOL. "Sweet November" was hardly a masterpiece but her and Keanu had chemistry and were enjoyable to watch. I agree though that she's a great actress and I've enjoyed most of her films. I made a comment on Youtube once about her short dark haircut not suiting her and I had somebody respond initially quite angrily but got into a conversation with them about performances of hers which I thought were masterful. Some of the things they said, seemed to have unusual knowledge of behind the scenes and preferring certian roles above the most acclaimed ones I really got a strong feeling it was Charlize behind the account! Could have been a super fan of course..
JohnMoore-162cm said on 15/Mar/20
She isn't a full 5ft10 based on what I've seen , the more I see her , the more I think she would measure 5ft9 1/2
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Jan/20
I don't think this actress has ever made a cr@ppy film!

The name 'Charlize Theron' is a mark of recommendation. She has yet to disappoint me.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Oct/19
I have just started to watch a Charlize Theron film called 'Dark Places'. It starts off in the year 1985, where Charlize, as a little girl, has just had her sisters and mother slain.

Now, many years later, Charlize, who plays a girl called Libby Day, has grown up, and unfortunately for her, the public's interest in her as a victim, is abnormally high. They send her money, but she has become a celebrity through no fault of her own.

She dresses in a way to keep public attention at bay, wearing a cap to cover her hair and her clothes are plain. She has just met the character played by Nicholas Hoult, and he is considerably taller than Charlize's Libby. I would say that I am in for a disturbing ride with this film.

So far, the normally beautiful Charlize doesn't look as tall as she normally does in high heels. She is wary of everyone, and who can blame her? I'll see how this film develops and get back with her height. One thing I do know is that this lady is excellent in everything she does, and I can't think of a better actress to take on such a challenging role.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Aug/19
Charlize was outstanding in 'The Devil's Advocate', with Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino, whom she towered over - but that little fact didn't stop him from scaring the hell out of her!

Anyway, Charlize celebrates her Birthday today, so...

🎂🎈 Happy 44th Birthday Charlize! 🎈🎂

Have a fantastic day with your family and friends and here's to a happy, healthy new year ahead! 🥂💐


Lazar99 said on 27/Jul/19
How likely she is 5ft9 1/2? I mean sometimes she doesn't look a legit 5ft10 woman, but more like 5ft9 1/2.
Editor Rob
5ft 9.5 or 9.75 is the kind of range she probably will measure, rather than a full 5ft 10.
khaled taban said on 18/May/19
I agree that she is a shy of 5'10", something like 177cm is very possible.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 11/May/19
Rob do you reckon she looks 3/4 Of an inch shorter than seth McFarlane or a bit more than that? Could she be 5ft 9-9.5"
Bradley said on 17/Apr/19
Friend of mine just met her in Vegas. She's a legit 5' 10".
Mimi said on 8/Apr/19
So Rob she has about 1.8 inches more heel than Ellen?
Editor Rob
Roughly around that much difference.
Mimi said on 6/Apr/19
Rob, how much taller is she than Ellen here and is her heels giving 3 inches?

Click Here
Editor Rob
Maybe somewhere in 5 inch range advantage, not a huge heel really, would have said a bit less than 3 inches.
Lara said on 7/Mar/19
I think she is 1.77 m.
Bobby 5'10 (178cm) said on 7/Feb/19
She looked tall in Prometheus, and hot. Also wow, she towers Kristen Stewart. I would say that 5'10 is right on the money. She looks my height proportionally.
Jammes said on 29/Jan/19
I want to guess 5'8 or 5'8.5,There is a pics of her with Mark Wahlberg from the Italian Job premiere,they look very close maybe she has an inch or so on him,I don't buy the 5'8 listing for Mark,he seems more like 5'6.5 or weak 5'7. Shes in a new movie with Seth Rogen,whos listed as 5'11,there aren't too many clear pics,but one of them he kinda looks like he has some height on her.
Dmeyer said on 20/Jan/19
Considéring Pitt is dating her now it will be interesting how they measure 177 girl and 180 Guy should look very close
Mimi said on 7/Jan/19
Rob is she going to be the same height as Chris Hemsworth with this?

Editor Rob
If he was barefoot, she'd look reasonably close, though maybe still a half inch or so shy.
Nik said on 25/Dec/18
90 voters agree with her height claims!
Littlelee168cm said on 7/Dec/18
I just don't think she looks 9.5 inches taller than Christina ricci in monster and both wear flat shoes in the film I see 7.5 to 8 inches between them max
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 6/Dec/18
She looks really tall in films. I saw her in Atomic Blonde, the Italian Job, and Mad Max all with her in them and she looked about 5'10", but I could buy that she is a little bit shorter, still a tall woman though. This is a good listing for her.
Mimi said on 31/Oct/18
I wonder how is Charlize's height is in her home of South Africa. Is she just tall or very tall there? I don't know the average height of South African females Google keeps bringing up mixed results.
Oliver said on 3/Oct/18
Rob,do you think Charlize would measure comfortably taller than Gigi and Kendall if all three were to be in a challenge of height measurement? 😁😁
Charlize is so humble with her height(she claimed 5ft9.5) whereas the other two hotties have been upgrading their heights over the years.(Now both have claimed 5ft 11).
Waiting for your reply.
Editor Rob
I don't think there is that much between them, at most 1cm or so...but Charlize may still be the tallest of the 3.
Nik said on 1/Oct/18
85 voters think that she is 5'10'" range!
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Sep/18
I agree with that Jonas! I can't see her being below the 5ft10 mark at all! 😁👍
Jonas Valanciunas said on 27/Sep/18
She is 5'10,she needs a small upgrade Rob
Nik said on 18/Sep/18
It's interesting that she mentions being 5'9" when most people of her height would just claim a rounded up height, at least!
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Sep/18
@ Bobby - I couldn't agree more! I always thought of her as 5ft10, having read it many times. She's a clever and charming lady, tackling some truly difficult roles. Have you seen 'Monster' yet? Her fact-based performance blew me away and she justifiably won a best actress award. She stars with 5ft1 Christina Ricci and towers over her; she put on weight for the role and is virtually unrecognisable in it when you see her in her other roles - and her perfume adverts.

What a woman!

Charlie gets 5ft10 this Saturday morning. 🌁

Cheers Bobby!
Bobby said on 13/Sep/18
Closer to 5'10 than 5'9, she's honest about her height.
Dmeyer said on 27/Aug/18
Looked huge near 6 FT 0,5 in shoes on Jimmy Fallon she seemed 6'2,75 shoes on her heels were thé type that gives 8cm that will make her 5'11,5 maybe angle favoring ,
MAD SAM said on 22/Jun/18
Wow she’s close to 191 cm Hemsworth, she’s gotta be 178-178.5 cm
Crumpet said on 14/Jun/18
Are the listed heights based off morning or night heights?
lee168cm said on 7/Jun/18
Conan you really wouldn't look any taller than charlize barefoot your 0.4cm taller there really wouldn't look any differnce
Natalie_M said on 2/Jun/18
Charlize Theron is listed online as claims to be either 5ft10 or 5ft11 and her very long and statuesque frame confirms this. Charlize Theron is one of the most beautiful and talented people in the film industry.
Tall Sam said on 22/May/18
Mackenzie may be sporting somewhat greater heel height but even considering that it's hard not to believe she is a little taller than Charlize.
Mimi said on 17/May/18
Rob do Charlize and Mackenzie look even in height to you?

Click Here

I personally think they would measure exactly the same.
Editor Rob
They are pretty close, though Mackenzie may well measure the taller I feel.
Interval said on 30/Apr/18
Rob do you think this could be Charlize Theron's heights?

5 ft 10.25 out of bed or 5 ft 10.5 on her best days
5 ft 10 early in morning
5 ft 9.75 throughout the day
5 ft 9.5 at her lowest height at night
Editor Rob
Those figures are certainly possible for her.
Conan said on 29/Mar/18
I measure my height myself at the morning and I'm 5 ft 9 7/8 in (177.6 cm) exactly so I think Charlize's height is 5 ft 9 3/4 in (177.2 cm). She just shorter than me a little bit. Good listing.
MaryAnne said on 16/Jan/18
rob she started as a model can you add her to female models list? resource:At the age of 16, Charlize Theron left her home in South Africa for a modeling career in Milan. After a year modeling throughout Europe, she moved to NYC to study ballet
Phil said on 10/Jan/18
Worked with her today on a new film called Flarsky. She wears 4 inch heels but is definitely in the 5'10" range because she was towering over guys who were 5'11", 6' tall. Incredibly nice and down to earth and treats everyone the same, as it should be of course.
Mimi said on 1/Jan/18
She's one of the few actresses/celebrity honest about her height. She can even look the same height with people who are 5ft10-11
Suzanne said on 9/Dec/17
Charlize is at least my height, I am 5ft9.75inches and she is about the same.
One of the comments stated she guessed 5ft4, what rubbish, in the film Monster both Charlize and Christina were wearing roller boots Christina is around 5ft3 so if Charlize was 5ft4 there would have hardly been any difference in height. in reality Charlize towers of tiny Christina in monster. Therefore, Charlie if you have seen Monster, please take extra Maths lessons, even Cameras can't trick us that much.
Mimi said on 30/Nov/17
@Allie come to any Southeast Asian country and you'll feel like a lamp post. I am just about 5ft8 and I feel like a really big girl here in the Philippines.
interval said on 29/Nov/17
Rob on Letterman she said she’s 5 ft 9.5. Do you think 5 ft 9.5 could be her low height?
Editor Rob
yes, I wouldn't think she'd be under it.
Allie said on 24/Nov/17
@Mimi - I still feel tall yes. Not a giant like say Gwendoline Christie but tall nevertheless.

@MaryAnne - Thanks for the positive message! My heritage includes Mexican and British so I kind of tower over most of my Mexican relatives lol! I'm actually 5'10.25 by evening and I tend to be around 5'10.5 during most of the day so i've started just going with that claim (179 cm) to make myself feel a little taller.. plus its kind of true haha.

On topic, I was just watching Atomic Blonde the other day and Charlize did look noticeably taller than James McCavoy.
MaryAnne said on 20/Nov/17
@Allie, no way dear! 5'10 is definitely tall for a woman! I am shorter than you at 5'7,5. I am called ''you are too tall'' by some of the people on occasion. I wish I was taller like you 5'10 mark. I used to think that I was 5'8 but I was measured two months ago that I found out that It was a misconcept. I realized I was 1,72 cms. Maybe, I have been felt tall as I live in a Mediterrenean country where the average height for men is 1,74. It does not change the fact, no matter where I go I will always feel tall for a woman ,even next to a 6 ft 1 (it sounds unrealistic)but I like to think that. Yes,you can not change ur height; we are not able to increase or decrease it. So, all we have to do is love and admit our heights.
Mimi said on 19/Nov/17
@Allie but you still feel tall at 5ft10 right? Because in any country 5ft10 is in the tall range for women
VicLions said on 19/Nov/17
I would say Charlize is 5ft9.75. She appears about 4 inches shorter than Will Smith, and in Furious 8 she towers over her other co-actresses. Also to her slender frame helps her out/
Allie said on 18/Nov/17
I don't think being 5'10 is that tall. I'm 5'10 myself and din't feel THAT tall. Maybe if I was like 6'1 or 2 then yes.

Anyways I think 5'9.5-10 is right for Charlize.
Bard said on 17/Nov/17
Accurate listing. People saying this isn't tall for a woman are delusional. Probably the same people who say 6'3 isn't tall for a man.
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Nov/17
... and another of her attributes, of course - her acting! 🎭
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Nov/17
@ MaryAnne - I think Charlize could pass for even more than 5ft9.5 in her latest perfume ad!
This time I'm going for 5ft10 for her, which is what I thought she was originally!
MaryAnne said on 14/Nov/17
Blonde,tall & leggy are the best qualifications that can describe this stunner. True 5-9.5.
Kayne's Best Prodigy said on 13/Nov/17
At least 5'11. Looked significantly taller than 5'10 Seth McFarlane on the orville.
Phil said on 2/Nov/17
Absolutely spot on. She's filming in Montreal right now and there's a double request asking for women 5'10" tall
Oliver said on 2/Nov/17
This listing is perfect but I still wonder why she looks almost as tall as 5ft 10.5 Nicole Kidman(similar footwear).
Joshua said on 3/Oct/17
She looks at least 5’11!!
Sarah said on 1/Oct/17
Close to 5'10
Tom said on 20/Sep/17
5'10 and a goddess
MisterManletMick said on 20/Sep/17
I think she might be 5 ft 8 because Tom Hardy (who we all know is a short guy around 173.5 cm) was standing next to her in a premiere photo shoot promoting Mad Max and despite wearing what appears to be standard 3 or 4 inch heels she was just barely taller than him and he didn't appear to be wearing extreme lifts like Vin Diesel wears.

here is the picture:

Click Here

on the otherhand you might find images that depict her as significantly taller than Him by around 4-6 inches: Click Here this could be however due to Charlize wearing larger heels as Rose Huntington-Whitley who is also rumoured to be 5 ft 10 had roughly the same height gap between Tom as Charlize in the previous picture, I think that Rosie Huntington-Whitley is closer to 5 ft 10 than Charlize Theron is and Tom Hardy was wearing flatter shoes while Charlize was wearing around 5 inch heels thus explaining the completely different height difference and also consider than Tom is bald while the two Women have long thick hair (I cannot really tell since I couldn't find images of that day of them showing what footwear or if any of them were standing on a pavement or angle that could change our perception) to be fair though she is in her 40s and people tend to shrink a little bit in the spine as they age and she admitted that she has bad posture I think at her peak she might have been around 5 ft 9 and a half, however I never met her , Rosie Huntington-Whitley or Tom Hardy so I could be wrong as this is my opinion based solely on my observation, the only way you can tell for sure if a celebrity is a particular height is if you put your ego aside and measure yourself honestly without bias to the best of your ability and somehow meet these celebrities when they are not wearing their magic shoes and figure where the top of your head would be in comparison to theirs or get a picture with them on a flat surface with no uneven pavements or pedestals that could get them a advantage, this is the only way unless you happen to be a mathematical genius who knows how tall the buildings and items around them are and can calculate based on that since very few celebrity actors would let their fans measure their height because that is a topic they tend to be very touchy about and they might lose roles if the director finds out they are taller or shorter then their character's height listed on the script.
elena said on 24/Aug/17
another proof kristen is 5'3(probably even less)charlise theron is 177 cm,yeah
Joshua said on 3/Aug/17
She looks taller than that.
Mimi said on 21/Jul/17
@Jani, that's a movie you know. They make tall actresses look short and short actors tall so.
Jani said on 17/Jul/17
I am starting to think that Charlize is more like 173-175cm range. In North Country Woody Harrelson (177cm) looks a bit taller than her and Sean Bean (179cm) in the same movie looks like he is almost towering her. Also in some promotional shots for The Italian job Charlize looks only about and inch taller than 173cm Mark Wahlberg even when she wears heels and in The Yards with 173cm Joaquin Phoenix the same thing about an inch taller with heels if even that.
Mimi said on 30/Jun/17
Rob, do you reckon she's about 6ft2 beside Chris Hemsworth
Editor Rob
in some heels she would measure 6ft 1, in bigger ones about 6ft 2 I feel, the lowest I'd argue is 5ft 9.5 for her barefeet.
Mimi said on 4/Jun/17
She said 5ft9.5 on Letterman a few years ago but she certainly could look near 5ft10.
Pitch_Fork said on 2/May/17
She is a 10.
Lee168cm said on 28/Apr/17
Would she be 6'2" in the photo above with Chris hemsworth?
Tom said on 19/Apr/17

Are you being sarcastic? If she's your height or taller, than you're not 6'1". If Theron is 6'1"-6'2" then imagine how tall Chris Hemsworth would have to be.
Allie said on 18/Apr/17
Mike there is no way Charlize is 6'1-6'2. She has never claimed to be that tall and is around 5'9-10 at least.
Mike said on 17/Apr/17
I'm 6'1" and I bet she's at least my size or 1/2 inch to an inch taller. She is GIGANTIC for sure I think 5'1 1/2-5'2" is a nice size for a woman no kidding!
SS said on 16/Apr/17
Her height is exaggerated
BilboBaggins said on 20/Mar/17
I estimate Charlize to be hovering around 5' 10" for sure. If you've ever seen her in the (pretty funny) movie 'Young Adult' alongside 5' 11" Patrick Wilson, she appears noticeably taller than him when wearing high heels. In one scene (the home 'baby-naming party' scene), she's wearing very low heels there and she looks about the same height as Patrick Wilson. In the movie 'The Huntsman: Winter's War', she positively dwarfed 5' 7" Emily Blunt. Same thing in 'Mad Max: Fury Road' alongside 5' 9" Tom Hardy. Charlize is a very tall lady.

I agree with Jp - I can't see Charlize being any less than 5ft10! It's very sporting of her to admit she has a 'really bad posture'! Personally, I cannot see it! She has a perfect one in the perfume ads she does!
Wasn't she fantastic in 'Monster'? She was so deserving of her awards; it is difficult to believe she is the same woman as the one in the usual, glamorous roles she has! She even had the mannerisms of a trucker-type 'bird', which I construe as rather funny when you consider how beautiful she is without that extra weight, messed-up hair and geezery outfits! Oh yes, and the beer she has a liking for!
I think she's great to take such diverse parts. I have at least 7 of her films, just for the record! 👸💐💄✔ 👹💪🍺✖

I think she is 5 ft 10.

She would edge out Taylor Swift.

I measure at exactly at exactly 1.77.9 at the end of the day minimum and I could see I was little bit taller , so hope that helps.

Theron could easily support a 5ft10-5ft11 height claim. If the average height individuals (5ft4-5ft6) claim to be circa 5ft9-5ft10, at least upgrade this truly tall Amazon beauty to circa 6ft. As for that photo of her next to Hemsworth and Stewart, it's as if Theron and Hemsworth are taking the 'toddler' for a walk in the park.
MC said on 9/Aug/16
Rob how tall do you think Charlize is in those black heels in the photo above?
Editor Rob
even though the front isn't that thick, probably at most 1/3rd or so inch, they look a high enough angle to push her around 3 inches range in them, so I would say 6ft 0.5-1, somewhere between that.
Christopher said on 3/Aug/16
She looked the same with 5'10 tilda swinton.
T said on 15/Jul/16
I live in Cape Town , I was once at the movie theatre during the day only a handful of people , I was getting popcorn and such and i looked back and saw a women with a black child and she seemed very familiar and I thought it could be her but she looked different so I didn't approach,only a few days ago when I was in a taxi with a driver who told me her and sean penn were there at that time , anyway she seemed more 1.75 than 1.77, I think she was wearing sandals .
Johan said on 1/Jul/16
So Chris Hemsworth is 5ft 11 with shoes?? please stop man.

He is only 2inches taller in that pic there and to me he is 190cm so 6'2.75".

6ft 3.75 in shoes to Theron who is maybe around 6ft 1.75 there with heels. So lets guess her heel height then. Most are 3-4.5 inches tops. I haven't seen her in really huge platforms before. So I will just assume 4 inches which puts her at ....5ft crazy.

Stewart is listed at 5 ft 4 so about average and is 8 in abouts shorter than Hemsworth. So 6'3.75-8 in = 5ft 7.75. So roughly estimating she is getting almost 4 inches from her heels.

This is just to prove to you charlie that Charlize is nowhere near 5ft 5 or 5ft 7 or anything else under a solid 5ft 9.
truth said on 29/Jun/16
@charlie Gary Sinise is a legit 5'8 and a big chance that he was 5'9 in his youth.
truth said on 29/Jun/16
@Charlie LOL that is a funny post. Most females in the west are actually around 5'5 give or take 2 inches (5'3-5'7) and most males around 5'10 give or take 2 inches (5'8-6'0).
charlie said on 26/Jun/16
It is very possible Kristen Stewart is 4'11.Most females are about that height. In Canada i see females who are 4'5 upon average ill say 5' for most females. The outrageous thought of the average female being 5'4 inches has me at a loss.To Bruce's comment i live on Earth ha and a 5'4 female with a very tall high heel will look extremely tall given the fact everyone in crowd in this photo including females are wearing flat shoes.Most celebrities lie about their height and most female celebrities will say they are either 5'10 or 5'9 like Charlize but when you stand them beside actors like Gary Senise who is 5'7 inches and she stand the same height and Charlize was wearing heeled boots too simply tells me that's her height in heeled shoes. You will be surprised how many so called 5'10 female celebrities i have debunked. Females Claiming to be 5'10 but when you see them in movies with high heels and they are standing beside their male costars strange as it appears they are the same height. So what do i o? I google the males height and in most case i find the male to be the same height as Nicole but the thing is he is not wearing heels she is. How is that possible.The Average male in Canada and the USA is 5'7. Simply ask Cortana (Windows 10 how tall is the Average man in the USA and she gives the answer 5'7.Many lie about their height. Many shorter guys will lie. They will include 1 inch for shoe height and 1 inch extra because most males add 1 inch to their height, proven fact. So a 5'9 male can magically become 5'11 ha.I myself am 5'10 (flat feet) and i tower over most Canadian guys by a mile. I can see their heads literally but they will claim to be close to my height. Littlesue's comment about Kristen Stewart would be about 4'11. You say that like 4'11 is a rare height for a female when in fact is is close to average.My opinion is Kristen Stewart still looks very tiny to me and she is in heels.Anyhow in flat feet i don't see Charlize as 5'9 at most 5'5.5.(without heels)
Edd said on 16/May/16
She looked an inch shorter than 5'11 Famke Janssen. 5'10 can be accuarate.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/16
She's definitely close to 5ft10
Bruce 5'11.5 said on 20/Apr/16
Hahaha on what planet do you live Charlie one can clearly see that Charlize is definitely not 5'4 as you state
littlesue said on 13/Mar/16
If that's the case then Kirsten Stewart the girl she with in the above picture would be about 4ft 11!!! plus how many times do you have to be told 5 inch heels won't give 5 inches of height, Charlize one of the taller of the current Hollywood ladies, think you need some new glasses> lol
charlie said on 9/Mar/16
Most actresses measure their height with the highest high heels on. This way movie producers can expect her height to be that and nothing less. Its easier for casting. Now Charlize Theron is listed at 5 foot 9 inches in height. In heels yes she is 5 foot 9 inches. Without heels given that he is wearing a 5 inch heel she is 5 foot 4 inches in height (Flat foot) Charlize is 5 foot 4 inches in height.
Mark said on 16/Feb/16
Why are the indisputably tall women downgraded and the average (and often petite) women upgraded to bogus height claims? For example, Kristen Stewart is listed as 5ft4 (some sites have got her as tall as 5ft7), and this beautiful Amazon-Charlize Theron-is listed as low as 5ft9-5ft10? The irony is that we all have here in full view the photo of these two women and Charlize is a skyscraper in stark contrast to the diminutive Kristen. Let's get some facts straight: either Kristen is 4ft8 or Charlize is 6ft2. Their height difference is massive.

People tend to shrink with age. Most people get measured with shoes on at the doctors so in her case she may of been 5 foot 9 and a half through the years shrink to 5 8 and a half but in the afternoon we all shrink so she would be 5 foot 8 or 5 foot 7 and a half.
Allie said on 10/Oct/15
Thanks Rob! Also, I just realized as well that a lot of the pages now have comments from back to 2005-2007! Then skip to around 2012? What happened? Also, some pages have comments that only go back to 2012-2014ish.
Editor Rob
I can't find a backup I can use yet from 2009-2012, but there is a limit to how many comments get shown anyway on pages.
Allie said on 2/Oct/15
Rob, this is about three inches right of a difference right?

Just wondering, how tall would those heels make her? Cause in both pictures, Charlize is about 3 inches taller than Tom but in the first pic Tom's wearing dress shoes but in the second he's wearing thick runners.
Editor Rob
in both photos it maybe is 2-2.5, but in the dress shoe one Tom has slightly better camera position and I think a bit better stance, so that's another half would be about 3 inches difference, or near it, then 2 inches footwear difference I think makes sense for her being 177 and him 5ft 9
Allie said on 2/Oct/15
Anything under 5'9 is silly. Charlize looked 3 inches taller in heels with no platform against Tom Hardy who was either in thick sneakers or dress shoes. She'd have to be at least his height range to pull off that.
SK said on 5/Jul/15
I saw her in person when she was wearing flat sandals and not dressed up. She looked at least 5'9". Maybe not quite 5'10", but definitely at least 5'9".

I agree with J.Lee Rob charlize needs an upgrade to 5ft 10in (178cm)
J.Lee said on 23/Apr/15
Rob, you said Charlize Theron is 5 ft 10.5 out of bed. Does that mean she should get listed at 5 ft 10 since, 5 ft 9.75 is her lowest height? 5 ft 10 would be her average height.
J.Lee said on 23/Apr/15
Rob, how tall is Charlize in these? Click Here
Editor Rob
6ft 1-1.25 range. I think her listing is ok, almost but not 5ft 10.
Bishop said on 26/Mar/15
Rob, I have no doubt that she is legit as listed. But next to Seth Macfarlane in "A Million Ways to Die in the West", it's kind of hard to see her over 5'9". Do you think Seth could be a fraction over 5'10"? He looks a strong 5'10 guy to me.
Editor Rob
not impossible at 10.25

I'm 5'11" and an Asian friend of mine is 5'9.5", and I am always taller than her, to where my eyes are slightly above her eyebrows. Charlize Theron was only about a tiny, tiny bit taller than her, so 5'9.75" to 5'10" makes the most sense for Theron. However, I couldn't tell you if she was in heels or not, as it was a long dress.

M.P. was your asian friend using heels? Are you male or female (I ask this just in case you were using heels as well).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/14
Just under 5ft10.
Judd said on 18/Oct/14
5'9.75" at her lowest, with a good chance to be 5'10"...
she really seems tall to me, with a normal pair of heels she easily reach people like keanu reeves (6'1) and will smith (6'1-1.5") and barefeet she had almost 0,75-1" on johnny deep, so nothing below rob's listing...
vfpswiftie said on 16/Oct/14
Rob is there a visible difference between 5ft9.5 and 5ft9.75? I'm just curious
Editor Rob
if you had 2 people barefoot together with flat hair you could probably tell if there was a 1/4 inch difference if you looked hard, but generally I think many would find it hard to tell people just slightly apart.
Silent_D said on 15/Oct/14
She always looks 177cm.

Agreed Sam, she is a goddess, a really cool person too, and a good actress. She looked great even back in The Cider House Rules. What I wouldn't give to spend a night at a drive in cinema with her hehe!! I prefer her with shorter hair, makes her look more elegant and it shows off her amazing face.
Ricardo said on 8/May/14
Rob, why sometimes you list to someone as 5 ft 9.5 and other ones as 5 ft 9.75? what is the difference? To be 5 ft 9.75, the person must wake up at least 5'10?
J.Lee said on 15/Apr/14
Rob, how tall is Charlize next to Chris? He is 6 ft 3 and 6 ft 4 in shoes, she only looks a little shorter
Editor Rob
she can look about 2, sometimes at other event with not quite as big heels about 3
Sam said on 24/Mar/14
She is one of the most gorgeous actresses I can think of today and, unlike many model turned actress, she is actually a pretty solid actor. She gives definitely more of a 5'10" than a 5'9" impression usually.

Here is a recent picture of Nicole Kidman next to Charlize Theron: Click Here .
Despite having less footwear and no standing straight, Charlize doesn't look much shorter than Nicole. Maybe a downgrade for Nicole or an upgrade for Charlize?
Chris said on 8/Oct/13
What do you mean with 1/4-1/3? 0,25 and 0,33? So the deviation with my example would be 9,25-9,5 inches with the 5'11 man and 9,15-9,4 inches with the 5'11 woman?
Editor Rob
a 5ft 8 girl and 5ft 8'd find typically 9.25 inch is common and just under 9 inch common for women, if that makes sense.

for the equivalent height women compared to 5ft 8 man, like a 5ft 3 women, the difference might be a bit more, nearer 0.5 inch
Emily said on 27/Sep/13
What's the average deviation in head length with a women and man the same height? Like for example a 5'11 man and woman. Would it be like 0,25 inches? The man 9,25-9,5 inches and the woman 9-9,25 inches?
I just feel like it's generally lower than i estimated.
Editor Rob
a 1/4-1/3 possibly
Emily said on 20/Sep/13
How long is her head Rob? 9-9,25 inches? That isn't big though for her height, is it?
Editor Rob
for her height it doesn't look oversized

Pedro said on 12/Sep/13
@COOLGUY I think that being tall is actually an attractive feature for beautiful women like Charlize Theron and Taylor Swift. It only becomes negative for women who are not so pretty.
That's probably why a lot of those tall and beatiful celebrities don't mind to tower over so many men when they are wearing heels. As long as it is not their own partner.
COOLGUY said on 11/Sep/13
Can someone explain to me why tall women still wear 3+ inch heels? I saw Taylor Swift wearing that at awards show she was taller than most men there!
Leland said on 6/Jul/13
I believe her claimed 5'9 1/2". That seems right.

She looks even taller than that sometimes, but remember that she really digs wearing big high heels.
J.Lee said on 2/Jul/13
5 ft 10 even or 5 ft 10 1/4?
J.Lee said on 1/Jul/13
Rob does this sound accurate? 5 ft 10 in the morning and 5 ft 9.5 at night?
Editor Rob
she could clear 5ft 10 out of bed
Len said on 29/Jun/13
One of the few stars who doesn't seem to lie about their height. Gotta luv it when an actor/actress is actually secure enough to tell it like it is.

She claims 5'9.5", and by gum, she sure looks it.

She also wears some pretty high heels, so she routinely ls standing at or over six feet tall in those.
J.Lee said on 18/May/13
ON David Letterman, she said 5 ft 9 and a half. Any chance she is 5 foot 9 and a half at night, but 5 ft 9 3/4 afternoon? Do you usually give them their lowest height or their height in between?

she is somewhere in 5ft 9.5-10 range, I think this listing is ok.

Maybe because he's currently listed at 5'11 and doesn't look a cm under it next to 5'7 James McAvoy and 6'3 Nicholas Hoult in X-Men: First Class, or any of his other movies for that matter? Or will you just flat-out ignore these facts/conveniently invent a lifts story to handwave it away like you do with all evidence that proves you wrong?

Oh my god she is so very tall. But she is pretty and nice looking and stunning. She is even a lot more taller than me. Even i am a tiny bit smaller to her. I am only 5'2 -167 or 168 cms i think. But she is my favorite 100th favorite actress and i like her. I went to see her in the movie snow white and the huntsman. And she was very good in it. And she was also good at playing the queen reveanna i thought she was very good when i had seen it at the cinema last year.

After 5-10 hrs= 5'9.25" (1.76 m)

On the topic of where tall starts: 5'7 is about the equivalent of 6'3 for men. See for your self Click Here
U read it wrong 6ft3 male is equivalent to 5ft9 wfemale according to the link you provided.

But really the difference between a man and woman who are equivalent to each other is about 5.5inches.

I would say, she's a legit 5'10".
Joanna said on 3/Jun/09
I've come on here to see what the consensus on her height is. I'm watching Devil's Advocate on BBC1 (repeated again!)I'm sure she's about 5'10". Definitely catwalk height.
Carel's comment about 177cms not being tall is right for some Nordic countries, even stretching as far as Belgium. We went to Brussles for a break and I was really surprised to see how tall a lot of young women were, easily 5'9" in flat shoes. Protein sources in the Western world are much more readily available than they once were and I can help thinking that the hormones in the meat and milk are pushing up heights. I wish I'd eating more fast food in my youth now! She is one of the naturally prettiest faces in Hollywood, in my opinion. Facially I can see similarities between her and Angelina, although she (Charlize) has a softer, more feminine jaw.

The only way to truly tell Charlize's height is to stand her next to a 5'10 guy both on barefoot

Watching Devil's Advocate right now and is what brought me here...
Keanu Reeves(6'1") was wearing Cowboy boots and Charlize wearing flats throughout the movie. She was only marginally shorter. I'd imagine both barefoot, it would be within an inch.
It should also be noted that Alpacino is also wearing HUGE lifts that are visible throughout the movie, again, against Charlize's flats.
If the heights we have for Keanu and Alpacino are accurate, then Chalize has to be over 5'11
See link and consider Keanu is wearing Cowboy boots and she's wearing flats.
Can't link...
Do an goggle image search for devil's advocate.. 3 page bottom row, near right.

Ppl from USA are short, I'm from South Africa and there are very many girls who are over 1.77m. In fact, 1.76m seems to be the average here

the average of USA is taller!!!Average in South Africa is only 170cm for men!
177cm is average FOR MEN in South Africa only for european descended
176cm average for women in South Africa?Never, not even in Dinaris Alps(in Dinaric Alps the average for younger women is 170cm,tallest average in the world)
Look in this page,you can see links for scientific researches(and sse with your own eyes):

wow people here are fighting so much... height is just a gene, some may be attracted to it and some not but remember its barely dependant on health nowadays because most people's parents had sufficient nutrients aswell (in this day and age)

anywho, yea charlize is so hot and i think 5'10 is her height

Apperently she thinks she has bad posture and her head is always down but I think her crazy heels more then makes up for it. I'd give her 173cm.
ghost said on 29/Dec/08
i don't think that she is 1.77 cm because iam 1.79 and she appears a little girl at my eyes i think about her height is between 173..1.75 cm
Mesh said on 24/Dec/08
Yep, 177 cm sounds nice, love her long legs!
anonymous said on 17/Dec/08
Yeh 5 foot 10 is feasible.

a 5'10" person will have the very top of their heads right at the top-tip of a 6'2" person's ears. Anonymous

anonymous said on 6/Dec/08
In the devil's advocate, she was 8 cm shorter than 186cm keanu reeves and about 2 inches taller than 5 foot 8 alpacino. 177 is her exact height. She is tall.

I'm 5 foot 10 and she looks a little bit taller than me:) She is beautiful and works her height. Bring on the tallies. haha!;)

MIMI: Maybe you're right. I was a bit contradictive, but I honestly did not mean to be. Somehow it just came out that way. Women of ALL heights are beautiful inside and out in their own special way. And so are men!! I will NEVER read this site again because I have much better things to do like go kiss my handsome 5 foot 7 fiance. (big smile). As for ALUCARD: You say Jan is a man's name in Scandinavia. So what? I'm an American, and besides, Jan is NOT even my real name! (LOL). I'm a very private woman and just typed "Jan" since it came to mind. No offense, ALUCARD, but your name sounds like a prissy guy who wears thick coke bottle glasses and has a short fuse. Make all the remarks you want. I won't be seeing them kiddo! (smile). Mimi, I hope you're happy. I mean that. Alucard too! Bye everyone! And I hope everyone out there has a GREAT 2009!! Be happy---and please DO NOT drive if you drink!!

Shes taller than 6-0 Will Smith in heels.
Anonymous said on 1/Dec/08
She may be 5'10", but she looks 6'. You'd have to say taller women are more attractive than shorter ones, cuz the whole beauty standard is europeanized.
Alucard said on 29/Nov/08
For your information, Jan is actually a mans name in Scandinavia, Mimi.
Mimi said on 25/Nov/08
Oh dear Jan, how you contradict yourself! Here you come talking about judging other people, blah blah blah..when your first comment was on how very tall women look so much better and how the short bridesmaid looked so silly. Ha! I do think 5'6"-5'7" is a great height for a woman, and if 3-in heels are worn, they're not necessarily for their height increase, but because they are high heels are usually beautiful shoes, make you stand a certain way, walk a certain way, and just look elegant and dressy on. Very tall women, including Charlize, also wear VERY high heels, and I doubt that it's only because they want to look over 6ft. Your logic continues to impress me, girl! LOL. By the way, you seem so focused on the "modeling" bit..for your info, there is a wide range of models..and height isn't really the sole determining factor, my dear, it's beauty, which if you look around, comes in all types. So yes, short ppl do model..and most beautiful actresses you see are quite short and petite. Anyway, I am sure being tall is great, and being short is great, and being average is great...everything has its good side. You seem like someone that is trying to overcompensate on her height...I'm sorry if being so big makes you have to say things the things you say. Be happy! :)
anonymous said on 24/Nov/08
177cm. She is really tall. When she went on the view she towered over the cast of the view.
Anonymous said on 24/Nov/08
she is half a head shorter than Maria Sharapova in some pictures I've seen.
I reckon she's about 5'6
Jan Nelson said on 22/Nov/08
Hey Mimi--if 5-6 or 5-7 is the perfect height for a woman, then answer this---how come most women of this height wear 3 inch heels?? It is so they can be 5 feet 10 like gorgeous Charlize Theron!! Eat your heart out, you silly woman!!!
Jan Nelson said on 21/Nov/08
How very boring this world would be if everyone were the exact same height, weight, color, etc. And what a shame we live in such a SHALLOW society--always ready to judge harshly on someone's appearance. Are we THAT small minded?? Anyway, being tall is great. No really short person could ever model.
Mimi tells what the "perfect" height is but there is no perfect ANYTHING or ANYONE. Mimi needs to realize that, the poor dear. I feel sorry for her.
Mimi said on 20/Nov/08
Jan, I rarely see 5'10" women "looking better" than their avg height counterparts. Usually tall women are too lanky or big and have serious "big face" going on. You're delirious, girl! I'm glad you're happy, though! LOL. I think 5'6"-5'7" is a perfect height for a woman. :)
Jan Nelson said on 19/Nov/08
I am 5 feet 10 inches tall and very proud. Taller women look better and that is the reason why models have to be tall. I was in a wedding party last month and one of the brides maids looked silly in her gown---she was way too short.
Yvette said on 11/Nov/08
I'm 5'10 and I've met Charlize, she is around my height maybe the same or a tad bit shorter. Not taller though, gorgeous and I was surprised at how curvy she is. I thoght she'd be really skinny!
Maura said on 2/Nov/08
I am from the USA and most girls tend to be 5'1-5'4. I am 5'7" and my BF is 6'4". I find shorter men (under 5'11)unattractive. Maybe tall women seek out tall men and short men seek out short women? Most supermodels are 5'7" and above (with 5'7" being a very SHORT model). I love my height and love to wear heels to accentuate it. I am blessed with incredibly long legs so I like to play those up to my advantage ;)
