I don't think this listing is correct. Do people really lose 1.5 inches in height in this day and age by the time there 71 if they are generally in good heath and have been for there entire life? I don't know I believe that. So if she is 5'5.5 now I can't see her any more then 5'6.5 or so peak. She has probably lost about an inch. This sight is awesome but the two things I think are exaggerated the most is how much height you lose over the course of the day and how much height you lose with age. Its so variable and can vary quite a bit with different people.
Editor Rob: height loss is quite variable, some escape with a fraction by 70, others might lose 1,2 or 3 inches.

I thought she was clearly taller than hawn in the ending but then again I doubt hawn was ever taller than 5'5 and probably closer to 5'4. I thought she was the same height as streep in Marvin's room or maybe a hair taller. The 5'6.5 peak she was listed here was more accurate IMO.

Do you think she could have started shrinking 20 years ago in first wives club as she wasn't taller than Goldie hawn at any point iin that film. Maybe she was 5'5 and a half in that
Editor Rob: maybe by mid 50's she would have started a bit of shrinking.

If Diane was 5ft7 when young, that might explain why poor old Al Pacino was in lifts in 'the Godfather' trilogy! Not that it matters a jot to me!
Anyway, Diane still looked at least as tall as Al in those films.
Now, of course, it makes sense that she has shrunk a bit! 5ft7 for prime, 5ft5.5 now I think is fair enough!

Woody Allen was about 5'5 at peak, maybe slightly taller, and Diane Keaton was probably 5'6. Women can easily claim to be an inch or so taller, because women usually wear shoes with higher heels, and no one has it down to an exact science the way Rob does :) I think 5'6 is more likely. Sometimes she can look a little taller than Woody, sometimes a little shorter, depending on footwear. My mother is 5'6. She has sort of the same proportions. Sometimes she seems quite tall with heels, even next to me, and I'm over 6 feet.

@Rob, can you squeeze in Looking for Mr. Goodbar, Love and Death and Father of the Bride?
Arch Stanton said on 1/May/15
Rob can you add a photo? About right, about an inch on Streep in Marvin's Room.

Perhaps it should go without saying but maybe it's worth citing that she's referring to Woody Allen in that quote.

Can you also add Reds, Marvin's Room and Something's Gotta Give?
Arch Stanton said on 22/Mar/14
Ah, stage, that explains it I was going to say! In Manhattan she looks near 3 inches taller than Woody although might have footwear advantage,

Rob, are you sure it was a 1969 edition not a 1979 edition? Keaton didn't start working with Woody until Play It Again Sam which was early 70s, her career only began in 1970. Also there's two superfluous i's in the quote, can you fix? Can you also add her notable films like The Godfather Trilogy, Annie Hall, Play It Again Sam, Reds, Marvin's Room and Something's Gotta Give?
[Editor Rob: yes it was from 1969...they worked on the Play it Again, Sam theatre production that year.]

Strange but Woody looks a bit taller to me in Annie Hall.

Wait a minute. Diane Keaton is taller than Woody Allen? Nah. I've seen Annie Hall I don't know how many times, and I thought he was taller.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Jun/13
Mmm. In all honesty I thought she looked a strong 5'7" weak 5'8" next to Al Pacino in Godfather part III. She had on pretty flat shoes and looked about 1.5 taller.

Five 8 is her height. She towered on me when i met her a few months back. I am no taller than 5ft 5.

From Diane Keaton's 1977 Time cover story:
"She [Keaton] worried that she was too tall. He [Woody Allen] worried that he was too short. They took off their shoes and measured, back to back. She, at 5 ft. 7 in., was three-quarters of an inch taller. Close enough."

Found a quote by her, back in The Times Recorder, a 1969 edition, talking about woody:
"It was him looking like a little mole that I was i afraid of. I I thought surely I would be too tall for him. I'm 5-7. I don't know how tall he is, I mean how short he is"
