Actually seeing her next to Gwyneth Paltrow, she’s not taller than this listing.

The average vote works out to be 5 ft 5 3/8!
Editor Rob
Yeah that's just about bang on. I'm not sure if she really is that tall.

Interestingly, this is a strange shot Click Here - Wilson actually claims 5ft 9, Bess Armstrong 5ft 4...

She appears to be a touch on the tall side!

I think she’s taller but her super short legs make her seem average. I guess 5’6, above average but not tall.

She has a very long torso for a woman, short legs though.

5'5" is right. Not tall or short.

She always seems taller. 166cm. Shorter than 165cm is not possible.
Jay said on 26/Sep/12
Seems taller to me.
jtm said on 30/Jan/12
rob do you think 5'4.5-5'5 is possible?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 5 on the nose might be a good shout. ]

Anonymous, meg and alexia, if you look closely at that photo you'll see that Claire is walking on the road, and Hugh is on the sidewalk.

In stardust she is an evident 2-2.5 inches shorter than pfeiffer who on this site is listed as 5,6 and danes 5,5 and a half so wots goin on is pfeiffer taller than 5,6 or is danes listed as too tall? Wots goin on?

Here's a more straight on shot of Claire Danes & Hugh Dancy, both in their bare feet.

With Claire standing on the little platform thing she appears to be very close in height to Hugh, who is not on the platform.

My guess is the platform is about 2.5" - 3.0".

If Claire's height on this site is accurate, then Hugh might need a slight downgrade. Or if Hugh's is accurate then Claire needs a slight upgrade.

glenn said on 14/May/08

meg said on 13/May/08
Anonymous, i'm not sure about the 3.5 inch difference in their heights in that picture.. looks like a foot difference, some weird optical illusion going on in that one. That guy looks way taller than 5'9

I love this website. My brothers thought I was weird that I was interested in heights of people and they thought there weren't people like me but this website proves them wrong. Awesome website!
angie said on 12/Apr/08
I knew she was about 5'5 cause in Romeo and Juliet she wasn't that much shorter than Leonardo DiCaprio. yeah she's really pretty
*Laura* said on 5/Mar/08
She does look quite tall next to Charlie Cox in Stardust doesn't she. I think she is really pretty, what do you think???
lol said on 19/Feb/08
hi sara all of those people you mentioned do not have nice bodies. they have anorexic bodies with no breasts (if you dont could beckham's huge fake implants) or butt, or any feminine shape what-so-ever. disgusting!!
Anonymous said on 19/Dec/07
dunno about that...charlie cox in the movie stardust is supposed to be 1.80cm but yet claire looks quite tall next to him. The world must be going crazy
glenn said on 29/Sep/07
franco.we went over this.please,you comment too much on my weight.that comment i left was for others.not you.you had a field day on my weight already.
Franco said on 28/Sep/07
how did u loose the chin/facial fat? ......facial exercise?
you seem to do a mouth thing in most picture, as if trying to enlong your jaw...:P

you dont look bad at all in that pic btw, ive seen worse (stallone to name 1)

btw Claire is definetely 166cm minimum.
glenn said on 24/Sep/07
thanks mike.im lucky.i could look worse with all that weight.and i did actually,12 years ago.horrendous.same weight too.double chin and worse gut.
Mike said on 24/Sep/07
you dont look that bad there glenn. I think with Running you have to go at least 20minutes to burn off the glycogen stores in the muscles, and then after that it starts burning the fat.
glenn said on 22/Sep/07
sara-your right.its more complex than it is.luckily,i still look ok.and my gut did disappear at least for the summer.but the actual weight never dropped.could be muscle weight too as i was doing arms and chest.thats where most of my weight is anyway besides my gut.thanks sara!
Sara said on 21/Sep/07
Glenn, you have to make your heartbeat rise to its target rate. I did ''running'' for a whole year and it got me no where. Also, you have to change your exercises and eating habits. Height and fast metabolism...not in our control. But the best bodies I've seen are the ones worked for, Eva Longoria, Victoria Beckham, and pb Claire Danes!
Austrian said on 21/Sep/07
she looks like Axl Rose lololol
glenn said on 21/Sep/07
wow rob,you have some old reserves huh?lol.

[Editor Rob: I thought your pic was up but when I checked recently the page was blank, so it went up today.]
glenn said on 21/Sep/07

glenn said on 21/Sep/07
im 35 and weigh around 190.worked out for 2 months this summer and never lost a pound.was in the low 180s for years until recently.weighed this much in the mid 90s and looked horrible.now its distributes better.in the older early 90s pics im 140.lowest i ever was,was 117 with i believe some sort of eating disorder.1988 age 16.fast passing phase thankfully.
James said on 21/Sep/07
Glenn how old are you and how much do you weigh?
Danius said on 21/Sep/07
looks 5'6..

Yes, the 65.5 inch estimate seems right. She is very thin with larger sized bones and it sometimes makes a woman seem tall. She projects a "tall" appearance even if she's a little above the U.S. average. Wonderful actress, very talented.

Maybe it took him a while to stop growing.
