Dakota Fanning's Height
5ft 4 (162.6 cm)
American Actress known for roles in The War of the Worlds, Man on Fire and The Runaways. Her sister Elle said in 2011 "My sister's 5'4" and I'm 5'6"
I'm a shorter person, so I'll see something and think, 'That looks amazing!' But that person is 6ft 1in. It's going to look different on my 5ft 5in frame.

How tall do you estimate Dakota's new boyfriend, assuming for the sake of the argument that he has around the same footwear as Elle in this picture: Click Here
Editor Rob: looks very tall, like 6ft 7 range

@glad Yes, I agree with you. Dakota Fanning does need an upgrade and so does Taylor Momsen. Dakota Fanning is at least 5’5” in her bare feet. Taylor Momsen is at least 5’7” in her bare feet.
glad said on 3/Nov/17
need to upgrade... she looks definitely taller, between 5'5 and 5'6"
Anonymous said on 20/Oct/17
@Realist Dakota Fanning is 5’5” in her bare feet. Dakota Fanning is 5’6” max. Elle Fanning is NOT 5’7” or shorter. Taylor Momsen is 5’7” in her bare feet. Elle Fanning is 5’11” max. Besides Elle Fanning has size 10 feet so there is no way that Elle Fanning is under 5’9” in her bare feet.
Anonymous said on 19/Oct/17
Dakota Fanning is 5’5” or 5’6” but her sister, Elle is at least 5’9.5” in her bare feet. In fact, Elle Fanning has size 10 feet which is huge for a 5’8” girl.
Realist said on 8/Oct/17
Dakota fanning 5'7 you guys are delusional she's 5'4 and her sister is 5'7 max
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 7/Oct/17
Lmao, it's ironic she claims 5'6" in 2011 but then claims 5'5" in 2016, when the opposite should make more sense because she was 17 at the time so she possibly could've grown.
said on 26/Jul/17
I'd honestly put her at 5'6, because she and elle seem similar here Click Here

I see her a little taller, like 5'4.5"...

Thought she was 5'7 lol and her sister 5'9
Justine said on 12/Jan/17
Dakota Fanning is taller than both Diane Kruger (5'5.5) and Victoria Justice (5'5). Maybe 5'5 at least?
Stephanie said on 20/Nov/16
I don't think she grew; I think she's still 5' 4". She's 22, will be 23 in a few months (girls are usually done growing by their mid to late teens) and I haven't seen her looking any taller.
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Oct/16
This little lady has been a joy to watch growing up and taking on roles that would have been a challenge for someone way beyond her years. So I see she's grown to about 5ft 4. It could be worse, girl, you could be my height (5ft 1)!! What a sparkling career you have enjoyed!
said on 3/Oct/16
I agree. Her recent 5'5" seems to be out of the question. But I was just wondering if she is more like a strong or a weak 5'4".
Editor Rob: I wouldn't put her as a strong 5ft 4 range...roughly close to 5ft 4, but a bit under at her low is to me more likely than a bit over.
said on 2/Oct/16
Here is a recent picture of Dakota next to Lily Collins: Click Here
They look like having the exact same height there. Maybe a slight upgrade for Dakota?
Editor Rob: I think Lily would measure a bit taller than Dakota, not seen anything yet to suggest Dakota would be as tall as that recent 5ft 5 claim.
said on 1/Oct/16
In this recent interview she now claims having a "5ft 5in frame": Click Here
Editor Rob: ok cool, worth putting that at the top too!

I would not be surprised if he was 6'3. Jamie always looked at least 6'3 with 5'10 range Behati!

How tall do you estimate Dakota's boyfriend, Jamie Strachan? He is listed 6'2" pretty much everywhere, but he looks slightly taller to me: Click Here
[Editor Rob: as a model many who are 6ft 3 do get listed 6ft 2, he could pass for 6ft 3-4 range!]

Met her in 2012 NY Fashion week, I am 5"5 in flat and she was in platform heels still shorter than me,most celebrities are very Tiny, models are the only tall ones
Stephanie said on 22/Jan/15
Dakota was 5' 4" and the doctors said she was done growing as of late 2010. If you look at pictures of her next to her mom (who obviously isn't growing anymore), she looks the same height as she did back then.

Jill said on 1/Jun/14
Pedro, it is possible but you also have to consider that their feet are chopped off in the picture so there is no accounting for footwear advantage or disadvantage on either. I think it's fair to say that Dakota is somewhere between 5'3 -5'4.
said on 28/Apr/14
Here is Dakota next to Britney Spears: Click Here
They look about the same height. So it's another proof that Dakota is around 5'4".
Stephanie said on 28/Apr/14
Dakota is still 5' 4"... the distance in height between her and her sister has increased over the past few years. Elle is 5' 8" now and if Dakota were 5' 5" she would look taller next to her sister.
Pedro said on 17/Mar/14
@Dion Dakota was 17 years old in 2011. Elle said that her sister already was done growing at the time.
Djon said on 13/Mar/14
Basically,height of Hannah was 5.4 in 2011. But our curiousness about her height was "what's her height now,presently 2014????"
Liz said on 24/Feb/14
@ Clinton Adolph Seeber
Elle and I are same height I am between 5 feet 4-5 feet 6 7. Elle is now least 5 feet 4 to 5 feet 5 but looks taller. Because she had a early growth spurt. I think. She done growing now. Dakota is shorter than me.
Pedro said on 26/Nov/13
@lizzie Why do you always repeat your estimation for Elle's height in Dakota's thread?
lizzie said on 25/Nov/13
elle is around my height but she look taller than dakota
elle is around between 5 feet 4 half to 5 feet 5 no more than that
Lizzie said on 18/Nov/13
Elle seem looks taller
I would say she around 5feet 3 half to 5feet 5
Elle is not taller than her mother is 5feet 9 to 5feet 10 she least 4 inches shorter than put her as 5feet 3 half to 5feet 4 half. I know she around my height so she 5feet 4 ish to 5feet 6 and no more than that. With hight heels around 5feet 8 to 5feet 9 half so around 5 feet 4 half to 5feet 5
Stephanie said on 27/Oct/13
@Lizzie Elle is way over 5' 5"... that was her height in May 2010! Late 2009 was 4' 11" to 5' 0". She was 5' 6" by her interview in late 2010. Dakota has been 5' 4" since 2010 and wasn't much shorter the years leading up to it. Look at new pics, Elle is nearly as tall as her mother!
Also, the Elle quote was from a magazine interview from late 2010, not 2011. The scans are available at her fan sites. The quotes from 2011 are the "We Bought a Zoo" promo interviews (December) and she was around 5' 7" then.
Lizzie said on 21/Oct/13
Elle looks between 5 feet 5 to 5feet 6
Elle is now like 5 feet 4 to 5 feet 5 half
Lizzie said on 7/Oct/13
Elle is least 5 feet 5 without shoes
I think she pale. She look a child so I think elle make her taller than she is
On different people think she 5feet 4 to 5 feet 6 height range
Elle is must be around more like 5feet 3 to 5feet 5 in pictures this year but no more
Lizzie said on 6/Oct/13
Elle is now 15 years old
by 2010 she was 4 feet 11 to 5feet
by October she looks taller than her sister like 2 inches with heels so she looks 5 feet 8 to 9 to her sister who inches shorter 5 feet 6 to 5feet 7 so real height is on most websites 5 feet 4 to 5feet 7
Elle must really be 5 feet 4 to 5feet 5 by now no taller than me > She is about height with flat shoes so would . my height range is 5feet 4 to 5feet 6 she no more than coupleher mother she is 3 inches shorter than mother now.
Stephanie said on 4/Oct/13
@Lizzie Elle was 5' 3" in early 2010. By November 2010 she was 5' 6" and had grown taller than the 5' 4" Dakota. Late 2011 she was 5' 6.5" to 5' 7" and early 2013 she stated her height as 5' 7.75". Now I would guess she is at least 5' 8". She is taller than you are now, and by quite a bit assuming you're in the 5' 3" to 5' 5" range.
said on 13/Sep/13
@Lizzie Elle didn't just say this spring that she is "slightly taller". She said specifically that she is "five-seven-and-three-quarters" (172 cm): Click Here
Lizzie said on 12/Sep/13

Elle is around my height with flat I say more around 5feet 3 to 5feet 5
She usally with heels shge look tall like 5feet 7 to 5feet 8
Elle say in interview this spring that sightly taller
Sighlty doesnt mean 4 inches it she like 5 feet 3 to 5feet 5 ish not 5feet 7
Lizzie said on 12/Sep/13
She looks with flat shoes as right September 2013
Elle looks like 5feet 5 to 5feet 6. She cant be 5feet 7
Stephanie said on 9/Sep/13
@liz Elle is definitely much taller than Dakota, even in similar heels. Elle is 5' 7.75" as of earlier this year. Dakota has been 5' 4" since 2010. That's a difference of nearly four inches! I don't know how much more Elle has to grow (she might be done, or possibly have another inch to go), but Dakota has been done growing for a while now. Yes, she was 5' 4" as of late 2010, but June 2009 call for a double listed Dakota's height as 5' 3.5" so her growth was almost nothing from age 15 to age 16 1/2. And from late 2010 she's stayed the same height.
liz said on 25/Aug/13
Elle is may look tall because high heels
elle is now 5 feet 4to 5feet 5 half range
Dakota 19 she look 5feet 5 to 5 feet 6 I believe that around the same height. Elle is half inch tall
XOXO said on 15/Aug/13
Dakota is 5'4'' and for the record she is taller than Kristen. I would say about one inch taller than her. I think Kristen is about 5'3.5'' not more taller than that. So YES Dakota is taller than Kristen, and she(Kristen) looks taller cause her head is small, she's got long legs and is skinny.
liz said on 30/May/13
Dakota looks 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 7. Elle look 5 feet8 to 5 feet 9 with heels
Dakota is between 5 feet 3 half to 5feet5. Elle is now around 5 feet 4 to 5 feet5 barefoot
Pedro said on 23/May/13
@tall How can you say that Dakota is 5'2" by looking on that video, if you can not see the size of the heels that they were using?
said on 22/May/13
she looks 5'2 here Click Here
said on 16/May/13
@marla Dakota's heels aren't very high on that picture, as you can see here: Click Here
. She also doesn't seem to have a very straight posture on that picture. Besides, maybe it is Sofia Coppola who is slightly taller than she is listed here.
said on 7/May/13
Rob, what do you think about this picture Click Here
I supported Dakota's upgrade to 5 ft 4 but I'm starting to think she was good at 5 ft 3. She can't be just 1 cm shorter than Sofia Coppola (in flats), if, in heels, she's barely taller than her...
Josh said on 6/May/13
dakota fanning shoe size is 7 and she's 5'4 i know cause i'am friends with her and she's on yahoo answering fan questions as we speak at officialdakotafanning_19 on yim hit her up.

Liz said on 3/Mar/13
Dakota is looks taller than 5feet 4
Elle looks taller with heels 5 feet 3 to 5feet 5
said on 2/Mar/13
@marla I totally agree. Elle said more than once that Dakota is 5'4''. She also said this on this interview from December 2011: Click Here
. I don't think that Elle would have had any reason to lie about Dakota's height in that way, because she made it pretty clear that she is very pleased about being much taller than her older sister.
So I don't understand why Dakota's height hasn't been updated here by now?
said on 2/Mar/13
Sorry everyone, she's taller than 5'3. Elle is listed here as 172cm: in this recent photo Click Here
Elle has about 8-9cm heel (the heel is low but the platform is very big) while Dakota has some kind of kitten heels on, which gave her possibly 3 cm. Elle looks about 16 cm taller, and considering her 6cm heel-advantage, she is actually 10 cm taller than Dakota and not 12 as it seems looking at the listings, so Dakota is near 5'4, maybe 5'3.75.
She looked nearly as tall as 5'4 Kristen Stewart, and I just don't see her as short as 5'3, like Pink or Natalie Portman.
Liz said on 21/Feb/13
Elle is 5feet 4 to 5feet5 No more than barefoot
Liz said on 14/Feb/13
I think Elle is 5 feet 4 but she look taller
She said on tv that she is not real sure on her height 2 or 3 years ago
she was on 12 when said that she was 5feet6 and look between 5feet1 back then now she between 5 feet3 to 5feet4 no way she taller that Dakota is 5 feet3 to 5feet4
Ali said on 19/Jan/13
I think Elle is 5'7" now
Liz said on 17/Jan/13
Dakota height is 5 feet3 Elle is like 5 feet 4
Pedro said on 14/Jan/13
Dakota's height should be updated. She is 5ft 4in. That has been already confirmed a long time ago by Elle.
Liz said on 11/Jan/13
Dakota looks sighter shorter than I am 5 feet 4 half to 5 feet 5 half. Dakota is more 5 feet 3 half
Elle looks 1 to 2inches than her. Dakota 5 feet 3 and elle is around 5 feet4 .

yes, I agree with stephanie. I think that dakota is 5'4"
Stephanie said on 5/Jan/13
Dakota is 5' 4" and done growing as of late 2010.

@Ria shoe size is definitely not accurate when determining how tall someone is. I am a 5'11.5" 18 year old girl and I wear an 8 or an 8.5 in shoes.

Um... I'm 13 and I'm a size 10 shoe (almost 11, actually) and I'm 5'5" and I can guarantee that I was a size 8 when I was 5'4". I suddenly feel... large.
said on 22/Nov/12
PLEASE ROB HAVE A LOOK HERE :) Dakota is taller than 5'3
1 - In this 2012 pic she looks 5'4 next to 5'7 Elle Click Here
2 - She looks about the same height as 5'4 Kristen Click Here
3 - Slightly shorter than 5'6 Kaya Scodelario Click Here
Dana said on 11/Nov/12
Ria what is your deal? The (misguided) things you're saying don't appear to correspond with any other comments. Where are you getting these shoe sizes anyway? You're like a spambot except you only talk about women's shoe sizes.
Dana said on 7/Nov/12
@Ria I'm sure you're basing that on something, but you're not right. My friend and I share size 8 shoes all the time; she's 5'2.5" and I'm just over 5'8". My other best friend is my exact height but she wears a size 11. The correlation between height and shoe size is verrrrry loose.
Darla said on 28/Aug/12
It's 70 inches tall or 5'10". That's the height of the car.
Falco said on 21/Aug/12
What's the height of a range rover sport hse? Different websites mention slightly different heights perhaps depending on whether they count the roof as open or some other reason. Anyways, there are pictures of Elle next to her family's car and she is clearly shorter than the roof even when she is standing on her toes.
Liz said on 15/Aug/12
Dakota look 5 feet5 but between 5 feet 3 to 5feet 4
Elle look tall Dakota but she wear high shoes make her look taller
Elle is more 5feet 3 to 5feet 4 she not 5feet7 to 5feet9
@ curious you are right Elle is listed 5 feet 6 but she is now 5feet3 to 5feet 4 Elle says she five 6 when she was 12. In 2012 she about 5 feet4
curious said on 9/Aug/12
show me any where that Elle is listed over 5'7"

Elle is 5''9 and still has 4 years to grow.Dakota is 161cm

Dakota Fanning is 5'5". Elle Fanning is 5'10" in her bare feet and she is only 14 years old.
said on 14/Jun/12
Dakota is slightly taller than 5' 3" Natalie Portman. Click Here
And that quote from Elle at the top of this page is from c. November 2010. The scan is on Elle's fan sites. Elle gave her height as 5' 7" in the December 2011 "We Bought a Zoo" promo interviews (they may or may not be on YouTube still because the copyright police may have removed them by now). Dakota's height was given as 5' 4" in November 2010 and her doctor said she's done growing. Which makes sense because she was 16 at the time.
I think Dakota *appears* shorter at times because she, like many/most teenagers these days, doesn't have the best posture. But the 5' 3" height was from probably about 2008 because the casting call in June 2009 for a photo double gave her height as 5' 3.5".
Re Kirsten Dunst height, I'm not 100% sure. I always thought she was 5' 7" but maybe she's slightly shorter, closer to 5' 6" than 5' 7".
said on 19/Jan/12
@Stephanie: Are you sure Kirsten Dunst is 5'6 to 5'7? On this site she is listed as 5'5.5, and Sophia Coppola who's listed as 5' 4.5 is as tall as Kirsten when standing beside Elle at the same event.
Stephanie said on 19/Jan/12
Another interview (The Rosie Show, December 2011) Elle said Dakota is 5' 4" and she is 5' 6.5" to 5' 7". Dakota is 5' 4" and done growing; Elle is a bit taller than Dakota but still growing and not sure how tall she is exactly.
January 2012 pics, Elle looks slightly taller (maybe 1/2"?) than Kirsten Dunst. Kirsten is 5' 6" to 5' 7", so 5' 6.5" to 5' 7.5" seems about right for Elle.
Stephanie said on 28/Dec/11
According to recent interviews of Elle's, Dakota is 5' 4" and Elle is 5' 7" to 5' 7.5".

Dakota is around 5'7 in her platforms compared to 5'1 Ashley in flats, I'm not sure I see a 6in difference ... does Dakota seem 5'2 in this picture?
Also, Dakota seems to be the same height as 5'1.5 Emma Roberts beside Ashley, and I doubt that Emma is wearing even higher platforms than Dakota --> Click Here

@Moke I think so too, I was actually surprised that she was almost the same height as Johansson, I expected her to be much taller, but then again she's often wearing massive platform heels ...
said on 13/Dec/11
Elle is about 5'5-5'6 judging by this pic with Johannsson - Click Here Click Here
But with 13,5 she's should still be growing considering that most women/girls continue to grow until the age of 16.

Elle is 5'7, she was wearing 3+ inches platforms, and she still only got 2" over Chung. Elle seems to be near her max height by now.
Lately Dakota has looked a bit taller than 5'3 for me, maybe 5'4 Rob?
beenthere said on 25/Sep/11
We don't know exactly how tall they are. However almost everybody agrees
that Dakota is between 5'3 and 5'4 and that Elle is at least 5'7.
Alice said on 24/Sep/11
There is no way that Elle is 5'8". I give her a maximum of 5'7", in that photo she is wearing heels that are at the least three inches tall.

I think Elle is 5'7 because I'm 12 and I'm 5'6 and she looks taller than me
5'8.76784 said on 5/Aug/11
Dakota is 5'3.5 max. Elle is around 5'7, she's pretty tall for her age, but probably won't reach 5'10, considering Nicole Kidman and Geena Davis were already 5'10 at 11, and reached their final height at around 6'.

Dakota is now listing herself as 5'5 and a fourth. Editor, what do you think?

hello everyone... i just read all ur conversations, would like to say that Dakota is 5'4 and Elle is 5'7... Elle is very tall according to her age.. I'm 24 and my height is just 5'3 or 5'4... I also would like to be tall but cant do anything in this... see Elle is 11 years younger than but still she is taller than me...
Alex said on 8/Jul/11
Thanks :)that's reassuring, lol. I also have a late growth according to the size of my bones... I am supposed to grow lately than normal people. Or anyway, it's not hopeless for me then;)
5'8.18758596 said on 6/Jul/11
She must have been 5'1 too I guess, maybe even shorter. She atually had a late growth spurt that turn her from short to just below average
Alex said on 5/Jul/11
Does somebody know how tall was dakota when she was 14 or 15? Cause I'm fourteen and only 5'1.5"/5'2" and dakota seemed pretty small too in 2008...
5'8.18758596 said on 2/Jul/11
Rob, any chance you will start pages for both Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld???
They already have a considerable amount of pics and footage standing next to many celebs, enough exposure to figure their current heights out I think.
everright said on 1/Jul/11
I believe that Dakota is probably about 5'3.5.
I believe that Elle is probably about 5'7 and going through early puberty,
so she may be almost done growing. I don't think she'll reach 6 feet.
El Fanning said on 30/Jun/11
in those photos she has with Tom Cruise, she is using platform heels that will give her a 5" advantage, while Tom has his supersized cubans that give him 3 extra inches, and since Elle looks 1" taller than weak 5'8 Cruise, doing the math:
Tom: 5'8 + 3" = 5'11
Elle: x + 5" = 6'
Then Elle: x = 5'7
She is still around 5'7, like last time we saw her next to 5'7 Hailee Steinfeld. Both seemed to have slowed down their growth by now.
El Fanning said on 30/Jun/11
Elle might get 5'10, but for now there's been half a year since she got 5'7 and she hasn't grown 1cm yet, I'm sure after her whooping 7" growth the last year, she will be growing at real slow pace from now on.
Stephanie said on 19/Jun/11
Dakota is done growing. she is between 5feet2 and 5feet 3
Elle also not going to be 5feet10
she not tall she averge for her like 5feet to 5feet 2 she doent growing 2010
Stephanie said on 18/Jun/11
Dakota is 5' 4"... look at her next to her grandmother now, compared to her next to her grandmother 3-4 years ago. She clearly grew a little, and the difference would make her 5' 4". 5'3.5" at a June 2009 casting call, she grew 1/2" since then so that makes sense. She is just thin and doesn't usually stand up straight so she appears shorter.
Re: Tom Cruise photo. Elle is wearing platformed heels. Tom's shoes maybe add two inches to his height, Elle's add 3" to 4" to hers. Elle is a strong 5' 6" or a weak 5' 7". Tom is a strong 5' 7" or a weak 5' 8". But seeing as she's only 13, Elle might still grow a little more. (She is hoping to be 5' 10".)
tall said on 16/Jun/11
the recent grad pics make me think that Elle is maybe a weak 5'7 and Dakota is a weak 5'3 or a strong 5'2

@laura, Elle was 5'6" as of late 2010. She was 4'11" to 5'0" as of late 2009. She grew a lot. Dakota is 5' 4". You cannot see their shoes in the picture you provided. I think Elle had heels on "Idol" and was also probably on higher ground than Seacrest, but even so she is definitely 5' 6" to 5' 7".

@Laura look it up on yotube before the photo she takes off her heels
tall said on 26/May/11
@ eagle eye I've been looking for photos and can't find any that show the shoes. However the point I was tryingto make is that the gap is so wide that she must be taller than seacrest
EagleEye said on 26/May/11
Referring to the video posted by 'tall', was she wearing heels?

Dakota is 5' 4" and done growing according to her doctor, as of late 2010. She was 5' 3" in 2008.
Elle was 5' 6" as of late 2010, but now she looks like she might be an inch or two taller.

She looks 5'2/5'3 I have friends that height, I'm 5'6(1/2) and my doctor predicts I'll be 5'10 by the time I'm 17, so in three years. In grade seven inwas 5'2(1/2) and I had a growth spurt of 3 or 4 inches and I grew that much in about 6 months, and I'm feeling the growing pains again so I thiink I'll probably be 5'9'or 5'10 in about a year or two:) yay dakota is 5 feet 2

she and doctor is wrong
she 5feet 1- 5 feet 4
Stephanie said on 13/Mar/11
Most girls stop growing at around 13-16. If a girl is going to be 6' she'd be around 5' 9" or 5' 10" at Elle's age, at least. A lot of my female friends did not grow at all in high school. I know a girl who is 6' 3" now, and she was 6' at 13. I don't think Elle will grow too much more considering her age and recent growth spurt, but she could still gain another three inches or so (meaning she'll end up at 5' 9" or 5' 10").
As for Dakota, she is 17. Most girls are done growing before 17, so I believe Dakota's doctor when s/he said she is done growing. Courtney Jines's doctor told her when she was 13 that she was 5' 2" and done growing (she is now 18), so Dakota actually had some late growth happen. And Dakota does look 5' 4" compared to other actors and actresses and compared to her mom and grandmother.
Re: Erin. She posts at my fan site sometimes. A recent comment really stuck out to me. "She is tall but not taller than me." Well, I am sorry to say this, but yes, Elle IS taller than you are. She is easily 5' 6" now. Elle has tall parents and that is natural for her to be tall, too. Height predictor for a girl with a 5' 9" mom and a 6' 3" dad is (69+75)/2 - 2.5 = 69.5" or 5' 9.5". Sometimes someone younger than you ends up growing to be taller and that is okay. My younger brother is quite a bit taller than I am. At your age (you said you're 17 so you're Dakota's age), you are not growing anymore, maybe an inch if you're lucky but even that is super rare. You need to learn to be happy with your height and not let it depress you or put yourself in denial over it. Height is not something you can control.
alwayshelpful said on 9/Mar/11
Some people want to live in the past. This is 2011 not one or two years ago.
Every honest and reasonable person knows that Elle is at least 5'6 and still growing.
Usually a 12 year old girl of that height would grow to be 6 feet or more.
However I would guess is that Elle going through puberty early and will probably end up about 5'8 or 5'9.
Stephanie said on 8/Mar/11
We can't tell how tall the mom's shoes are in those pics, but we know from other pictures that she is around 5' 9", but even if she has flat shoes (IMO it looks like she's in heels--look at the soles of the shoes, but for argument's sake let's say they're flat), Elle is no shorter than 5' 6", after you account for her small heels. Hailee bending down? So was Elle. Hailee is 5' 8" and really not much taller at all. If Elle were up to her mom's eyebrows she would be ~4" shorter than her mom (5' 9" - 4" = 5' 5") but she is clearly taller than that.
Elle is way taller than 5' or 5' 3". Elle being 5' 3" would mean her mom is six inches taller, which she clearly is not. Those were her heights in early 2010. Sorry. March 2011, she is 5' 6" to 5' 7".

she is most likely 5 feet 2- 5 feet 4
Dakota is 5 feet 2 that what say on website
Stephanie said on 16/Feb/11
Elle is much shorter than her dad because her dad is 6' 3" and Elle at 5' 6" is nowhere near that tall. She was probably 5' 2" this time last year and 5' 5" as of late summer 2010. But according to her doctor Elle is 5' 6" barefoot and Dakota is 5' 4" as of November 2010.
ERin, why do you want Elle to be so small? You keep saying she is 1" to 4" shorter than her November 2010 height. Elle's parents are both tall, and lots of girls her age (7th grade) are getting tall. There are some girls in my brother's class (he's also in 7th grade) who are 5' 7" or 5' 8" already. Elle being 5' 6" is quite believable. My sister is in 9th grade (2 years older than Elle) and some girls in her class are 5' 10" or 6' now. Elle is nearly 13, not a tiny girl of five anymore.
ERin said on 11/Feb/11
elle is much shorter than her dad as feb 2011 so most likey she is 5 feet 2- 5 feet 5 that what say most of websites I go
Stephanie said on 9/Feb/11
alwayshelpful, I agree. Elle grew seven inches in a year (November 2009 - November 2010) and is still growing, although probably not as quickly. As of February 2011, she is AT LEAST 5' 6". Some people are even saying she is 5' 7" now, but that hasn't been confirmed like the 5' 6" was.
Stephanie said on 9/Feb/11
The doctor is not wrong. That is how tall she is. Elle is 5' 6" as of November 2010, and Dakota is 5' 4" and done growing. Why is it so hard to believe the girls are growing up? They are not 9 & 5 anymore.
Dakota will turn 17 this month and is finishing her last year of high school, and will graduate on June 6th. She will start college in fall 2011, and then will turn 18 on February 23, 2012. Dakota is almost an adult.
Elle is nearly 13, and a lot of girls get tall at that age. I knew a girl who was 6' when she was in 8th grade! Elle is 5' 6", in 7th grade, and still growing. Elle has relatively tall parents (5' 9" mom and 6' 3" dad), so it shouldn't be a surprise that she's gotten to be 5' 6" already. Most girls gain 0"-3" in high school, so it makes sense that Elle is 5' 6" right now if she's going to be as tall as her mother.
Dakota's maternal grandmother is about average height, so she gets her height from her grandmother. It looks like the grandmother is 5' 3"-5' 4", and Dakota is 5' 4".
ERin... Dakota is not 5' 2" and hasn't been that small for a while. She was 5' 3" in late 2008, 5' 3.5" in June 2009, 5' 4" in October 2010.
Elle grew seven inches from late 2009 (4' 11") to late 2010 (5' 6"), so it makes sense that her height would vary in a film she made last year. But she is taller than 5' 4" now.

ERin: Sorry, but that information is outdated, and whoever posted that obviously doesn't follow Elle Fanning's career. Elle is definitely taller than 5 feet! She is 5' 6" as of November 2010, and her parents are 5' 9"/5' 10" and 6' 2"/6' 3", so she's probably going to grow taller. Dakota is 5' 4" and done growing as of November 2010. Their parents are tall but I notice their grandmother is about average height, so I guess Dakota got her grandmother's height and Elle got her parents' height.
Source: Recent magazine scans, Elle's TV interviews. Elle gives 5'6" as her own height and 5'4" as Dakota's height. Dakota was 5' 3.5" as of June 2009, so 1/2" in a year and a half makes sense. Elle was 4' 11" and grew seven inches, so she's now 5' 6" and growing.

Elle's face is too young to be older than Dakota. Her face is too girly and she still has acne; she is very much 12 1/2 years old. And taller doesn't necessarily mean older. We are not plants and we do stop growing eventually. ;) According to recent promo interviews for Somewhere, Elle said she's 5' 6" and Dakota is 5' 4".

Elle is quite a bit taller than Emma Roberts. They are both in heels and Elle is clearly taller. Also, Emma Roberts is tiny: she's 5' 1" or 5' 2". Dakota is 5' 4" (average height for a woman) and Elle is 5' 6" (tall for her 12 years). Considering Elle says Dakota is done growing they must have both gone to the doctor recently and gotten measured. The heights in the interview are current and correct. Click Here

Stephanie said on 18/Nov/10
Dakota's height page also hasn't been updated in a while. The new comments and links are added, but her height stays the same. Dakota's casting call sheet from June 2009 said she was 5' 3.5" (or 161 cm) and just now in Elle's interview she said Dakota is 5' 4" (or 163 cm) and the doctor said she is done growing. I thought Elle was closer to 5' 4" or 5' 5" but she's been growing a lot lately, so I believe her when she says 5' 6" (168 cm). She is hoping to be tall, but that might not be good for her ballet if she gets to be too much taller than she is now. You have to be slightly shorter than your partner when you're en pointe, and being en pointe adds four to five inches to your height. If she's 5' 10" + 5" (6' 3" en pointe) then her partner will have to be AT LEAST 6' 4"/6' 5". The average height for a man is around 5' 10". :-S
Blahsay said on 18/Nov/10
Kate: That picture is from April. This article is from the November issue of Wonderland magazine, a mainstream publication. I think it's entirely plausible that Dakota could have grown an inch in seven months and Elle could have grown two inches. I'd also trust the heights provided by Elle herself over observations from telephoto lens photos.

pshhh this site says 5'3. i believe it, so Blahsay: elle is def about 5'4, according to this pic
bluesense said on 13/Nov/10
Everybody says Dakota is between 5'3 and 5'4.
Elle is about 5'6 and may end up being very tall or maybe
she is going through early puberty and is about done growing.
Stephanie said on 12/Nov/10
Thanks for that article Blahsay. Dakota grew 1/2" since the June 2009 casting call, and Elle has grown a lot this year; she was 5' 0" less than two years ago and now she is 5' 6".
said on 11/Nov/10Click Here
"When we say Elle Fanning is emerging from the shadow of her older sister, we mean it literally as well as figuratively. At 12, she's already a willowy 5'6". 'Dakota's 5'4" and they said she's done growing,' says Elle, with a hint of sisterly competitiveness. 'I like being tall -5'10" would be perfect.'"
Dani said on 26/Oct/10
Well she seems about 5 foot 5. That's not that short. I honestly would rather be that size. I'm 13 and 5 foot 10, and in grade 4 I was 5 foot 4. I honestly don't like being this beastly tall.
Anonymous said on 21/Jun/09
5'5"? No way! Dakota does look under 5'4" and even if she is, she has to be 5'4" max. Some people on the Kristen Stewart height page are consistently claiming that Dakota's 5'3". Anyone who's actually seen her? Pictures can be confusing, so I guess we need some real evidence.

Film Buff Pediatrician said on 17/Jun/09
For girls in industrialized nations, most of them will reach their full height between the ages of 12-14. Continuing to grow past 18 is an exception, not the rule. If you factor in the diet regimen of female celebrities (especially those who have been in show business since childhood) who are under pressure to be very thin, this creates a chance of impacting their full height potential. For example: I had a female patient whose father was 6'4 and mother was 5'10-- but because of her extreme dieting, by the time she was 18 she reached her full height of 5'8. It's in her genes to be tall, but she didn't reach her full potential of at least 5'10. There's a lot of wishful thinking on this site.
xc said on 15/Jun/09
Her casting call for a stand-in says 5'3.5":
Stand-in / Female / Caucasian / 18 - 28 /
Dakota will have platinum blonde hair but WILL BE WIGGED, so any hair color can now submit if you are not blonde!..but please match her statistics perfectly! She is 5' 3 1/2", weighs 102 lbs., is a 32Abust, 24" waist, and a size 0. She is pale, fair-skinned, and has blue eyes. You must be available every shoot day, Sunday through Thursday. You must have stand-in experience and must fit her description and statistics perfectly. Interview on Saturday 6/13/09.

and the same height.But,I hope I can grow taller soon likes 5'5-5'6 range.My father was like 5'5 1/2[166cm],I think.I am almost at the same height of my father although my father is a little bit short while my mother is only 5'1 1/2[156cm].I cannot believe it that I am taller than my mom.I am still hoping that I can grow taller than this.But being the height of this is just okay and it is not that short.My friends who are the same age as me are just height around 150-157cm.That is short right?no matter how tall you are...you should appreciate yourself....

blob said on 8/Jun/09
In the picture with the twilight cast, she has those huge heels on. If Kristen is 5'4, who looks tiiiiiny at the mtv movie awards, dakota is probably barely 5'1. She looks tiny still with heels on, and Kristen probably has on Converse, which are flat. If shes Kristen's 5'4 with those heels, Id say around 5'1.

What is she, 15 now? She might still be growing. Most girls continue to grow til they're 18, and with some late bloomers, maybe even 21 or 22 (shocking, I know), whereas guys may stop at 25. I honestly think she may grow to 5' 4 - 5' 5" range. Her mother is about 5' 5", but don't know what her dad's height is.

I think it's true that Dakota will grow taller because of her recent appearance showing she's a teen, she might grow 3 to 4 inches taller. Even though she's 5'2," I don't picture her still being at that height when she gets older.
Rachel said on 19/Apr/09
No. Elle Fanning is the same height as her sister (view JustJared). Dakota may grow up to be tall because both her parents are really tall. My parents are 5'2 and 5'8 and I'm 5'8. Plus, I was 10 when I got my period and I was only 5'1

Definitely under 5'4" Look at her with Chris Evans (6') Click Here
Stephanie said on 9/Apr/09
I knew a few girls who grew in high school, so it's rare but not impossible. I grew 3" to 4" since I was 15, so you never know.

Elle is going to be the tall one. Dakota won't grow any more than 5 foot 3.
joe said on 18/Mar/09
She'll tap out at about 5'4 or 5'5. She'll grow 3 inches max. After age 15 girls don't have the major growth spurt that boys do. She's pretty much done growing. Growing vertically that is. ;)
Stephanie said on 3/Mar/09
Dakota's parents are both around 5' 9". So her dad is on the low side of average and her mom is tallish for a woman.
She's 15 now so she may or may not grow. We'll have to wait and see. ;)
Becky said on 18/Feb/09
I'm pretty sure in denial that Dakota won't be growing as tall as me!She's like 5'2 or 5'3 short for a girl i think i was the same height as her when i was her age and then i grew to be my height(5'5) and my mom's short and my dad's pretty tall so i guess her parents are medium height for sure
Mercedes Banderas said on 16/Feb/09
She's 5"2. Well that doesn't seem tall to me I guess cause I'm 5"6 but I'm also 19 yrs old. Idk I think I was about her height when I was her age...
Simone said on 12/Feb/09
I just finished watching Push & I cannot believe how tall she is. I just kept saying wow she's really tall. I'd say she's about 5'2-5'4 & that's pretty tall considering she's only 14. I'm 18 & I'm only 5"3 =)
Jamie said on 9/Feb/09
Well, to be exact, I was more like 152 cm when I was 10, but that was about when I got my period. Now I'm 13 years old and 163 cm (5'4"). I think I'll just be an inch or two taller, since I got my growth spurt so early... plus my parents are both quite average.
Natalie said on 7/Feb/09
I'd say she's 5'3, perhaps 5'4. Remember her parents are quite tall, so I wouldn't be surprised if she ended up growing to be like 5'8.
Anonymous said on 6/Feb/09
Actualy "Gavin" I was only 140cm when i was 14, then I started growing like crazy, I thought I was done growing, but now I'm 18, and until last year i was still growing, I am now 163 cm.. which is 5'4 i think :)
So, I dont think Dakota is done growing, she still has time, and i think she will be taller than the estimated 5'2 for sure
Jamie said on 1/Feb/09
When I was 10, I was 5' tall. I just turned 13 and I'm 5'4". My mom is 5'6" but my dad is 5'8", so I don't think I'll grow too much anymore.. I'm sorta tall for my age, I guess...
I'm not sure about Dakota Fanning. I'll say 5'2"-5'3", about.
cassie said on 31/Jan/09
5'6- 5'8 is average for females in the US?!
No... it's 5'4 - 5'5.
said on 30/Jan/09
Gavin, she is definitely not in the 5'6''-5'8'' range.
Here she is with Camilla Belle who is 5'8'' and towering over her.Click Here
she is probably 5'3'' - 5'4''
Gavin said on 29/Jan/09
She was almost as tall as Leno, but she was wearing heels. Leno was only an inch or two taller than her and he is 5'11", so assuming approximatly 2" heels, Fanning has to be around 5'6"-5'8" which is about average height for a female. She'll be 15 in Feb'09 so she's probably done growing by now.
push said on 27/Jan/09
i think she's around 5'2-5'3 from the look of it in pictures.
i don't think she's past 5'4.
you have to remember that she's wearing heels alot and she's super-skinny and people who are really thin tend to look taller.
look at zhang ziyi for comparison.she's only 5'4 but she looks taller because she's skinny
Jina said on 25/Jan/09
I know she has grown ALOT lately. I'm sure shes passed 5'3'' by now. Seeing her on various shows, she looks 5'6'' at least.
Isabel said on 20/Dec/08
I think she's 5'1"-5'2" I'm 5'1" and she looks about my height usually in the photos, but you can never really usually tell from a photo you know...
kieta said on 7/Dec/08
yeah..I,ve saw her latest pic.LOOK like young lady..beauty...she grew fast.
steph said on 6/Dec/08
she definitely grew. take a look at her new movie that's coming out, Push.
Rohit said on 3/Nov/08
I agree with Lily. She has to be atleast 5'3. She's certainly not 5'1 anymore. I think she might grow up quite tall. I'm jealous, I'm a few months older than her and I'm still 5' :P
Kristy said on 2/Nov/08
I bet she's 5'2 - 5'4. She is wearing heels alot though, so I may be decieving myself. But she's so slim it makes her look taller than what she really is.
Lily said on 1/Nov/08
how old are you ? maybe you might still grow more :]
my gym teacher once told me that her height is still the same height as when she was 8. and last year, she told us she grew a inch and now she's 5'2.
and she's like in her late 20's. so you never know !

SHe's probably 5'1" take a good look she always wears heels now :0
big fan said on 16/Oct/08
I think she is 5'2" because have you seen the comishals of the secret life of bees she look taller than ever i'm short and im 5'0"
Lily said on 11/Oct/08
i think she's taller than 5'2 now. cause i'm same age as her which is 14, and in 2005, she was 11 with a height of 5', and when i was 11, i was 4'11. and now, i'm about 5'3 so she has to be ATLEAST my height or taller since her parents are pretty tall. cause if she's really 5'2 right now, that means she only grew like 2 inches in 3 years. that's really a small amount. so i say she's about 5'4 or 164 cm, now.
Anonymous said on 3/Oct/08
The height displayed was when the war of the worlds movie was made.
That was 2005. I think shes 5"2' now and thats an average height for her a
Natalie said on 27/Sep/08
Yeah, I agree. She's deffinately not below 5ft anymore. She's actually grown quite a bit this past year, I think she's like 5'2 or something. I'm 14 and I'm 5' :P
Anonymous! said on 23/Sep/08
So true Hawaiian girl, so true! I'm with you on that one.....Anyway, I doubt that Dakota is still below 5', from those recent snaps she's looking a bit taller than 4'10", but, hey, if I were her, I'd be thinking, "At least I'm taller than Shawn Johnson who is 4'8" (MAYBE 4'9" on a good day) at age 16!" Hahaha, you have got to love Shawn, and Dakota.
F'K said on 16/Sep/08
i think Dakota Fanning is short for her age. my sister is 10 years old and she already have 5'. i have 15 years old and i'm only 5'2.
Hwn gurl said on 15/Jul/08
Its okay she's short, if you live in hawaii, like me, its alright to ne short. There's alot of short ppl here cuz their Asian like me. I'm only 5'0" and 15 yrs old and I have a neice 11 years old and she's 5'4". I don't feel bad cuz I had alot of tall boyfriends. So screw all of you who's all like "omg, she's so short and she's 14!" I bet she'll be taller then me but I don't care shorter is better! At least we don't have to worry about our boyfriends shorter than us. Haha.
???xoxosecret said on 2/Jun/08
woah... i'm 11 and i'm 5 foot and a half and i'm taller than a 14 years old... woah!!! she must take gloxi to be taller or some chinese pills... trust me they'tr effective
said on 19/May/08
I'm relieved to see that she is finally looking adolescent. I'm a fan and for a while there I thought she might have had a disorder. She's prolly even 5' now. Click Here
Anonymous said on 10/May/08
Dakota looks about 4'11" and a half, not 4'10" she's probably not 5'2" because I'm 5'1" and I don't look short next to my mom who is 5'5" in a picture next to Kate hudson who is 5'6" she looks much shorter.
Adrianna said on 4/May/08
I am a model (her age) so I live in CA and have met her. My 10 year old sister is 4'9 and she is about her height. She is def not even 5' yet. I'd say she is 4'9-4'10.5. So the listed height is correct. I'd give her a year, maybe she will grow? She will definatly not be a tall woman since she is already 14 and not yet 5', however she may reach 5'2 by the time she is fully grown.
Rach said on 29/Apr/08
Dakota is 5'2" stephanie is right. you can tell by looking at how high her head comes up to the door frame in a picture on a gossip webpage.

"Kristen yes you are abnormally tall there are only a couple of kids in my school who are 5'9" and they're guys, we're 13, too."
Guys that age are probably shorter than girls, so really you've just proved Kristen right, lol. If guys in your class are already 5'9 at age 13, then that's as "abnormal" (or even more so) than a girl being 5'9 at that age.
Stephanie said on 10/Apr/08
I think Dakota looks around 5' 2" now. I think she has genes for late growth, seeing as both her parents are much taller than she is. Joy looks at around 5' 8" or 5' 9" and Steve is probably 5' 10" to 6' 0" range. That means the girls should be around 5' 7" when they're done growing, but it's hard to tell.
Tilly said on 9/Apr/08
I think Dakota's 4"11-5".
Oh and Anonymous... I highly doubt u go 2 school with Dakota because she is home schooled smart one.
Olivia said on 13/Mar/08
I think she is 4'11" or maybe 5'0 or 5'1 by now.. and she is 14 now so she could go through a growth spirt.
runt said on 8/Mar/08
I have only seen one photo on the whole internet wear she even remotely looks like a teenager. What's up with that?
Ashleigh said on 16/Feb/08
I met her two months ago, she is a tiny girl for her age. She is about 4'10 or 4'11 the stated height is accurate.
Stephanie said on 12/Feb/08
She is 5' 2" now. Time for some updating.
hattie said on 2/Feb/08
i think that she is around 5' maybe taller because she isnt that much smaller than a certain someone i no who is 5' 4"!!! anway she is such a good actress and her sister is close behind her!
Anonymous said on 13/Jan/08
I go to school with her and she's pretty tiny. I'm 5' and she's definitely shorter than me.
Stephanie said on 9/Jan/08
If Camilla Belle is 5' 7" to 5' 8", Dakota only looks 4"-5" shorter, so she's gotta be at least 5' 2"...
Lucas said on 7/Jan/08
Honestly, I think she has grown up a bit, I heard she was about 5'4"

There's no way Dakota is that short. Here is a pic of her with Chris Evans who is about 6'1/2". I would say she is a minimum of 5'1", probably more like 5'2". She is also slouching slightly. Click Here
