I would rule out a strong 5'6 3/8 for ERW.
Nik said on 17/Apr/18
Evan is slightly above her stated height!
Rose said on 13/Apr/18
This is way too low. She is obviously about one inch taller that her ex husband, Jamie Bell.
Jtm said on 26/Aug/17
I have to go against the consensus. Strong 5'5 is more like it. A lot of times she looks like she is standing as tall as possible.
Nik said on 25/Aug/17
I think you've low ⚽️'d her Rob!
I think she's 5'6.5" - 5'6.75"!

I should have mentioned that Selma Blair is only 5ft2.5!

Evan Rachel Wood played a gorgeous, elegant and mature-beyond-her-years brunette in the film 'Pretty Persuasion'. I did think she could pass for nearer the 5ft8 claim of hers in that movie than she could have done when starring with 6-footer Edward Norton in the enjoyable film 'Down in the Valley'! Standing next to 5ft4 Nikki Reed in her film 'Thirteen', I'd have believed 5ft6.5 for her.
Perhaps it was that she came over as extremely confidence in 'Pretty Persuasion' that I would have had difficulty believing she was just over 5ft6. I really did class the girl as 'tall'!
I have decided on 5ft6.5 for her - and that is after hunting down my copy of 'Pretty Persuasion' to check for any pictures on offer! I found one on the front cover of Evan standing on a lower step with two other girls. They all wear the same black, flat school shoes, which is mega-useful for comparison purposes, and Evan is almost as tall as the two others, including Selma Blair. It give reasonable evidence that she (Evan) is above average!

Looks 5'7 ish

She needs an upgrade, she's at least 5'7
chase said on 26/Sep/16
I've met her a few times at my job. She's probably a weak 5-8 or strong 5-7. I'm 5-8 and she was around the same height as me.
Realist said on 5/Jun/14
She is 169 , 5'6.5, Jamie Bell looks 5'6.75. Weak 5'7, but i can see why she chose him. He is better than most guys around. Classic height does'nt matter example.
said on 13/Mar/14
Here is Evan next to Elle Fanning. Both had around the same footwear: Click Here
So I agree with most people here that Evan should get a slight upgrade. She is maybe not a full 5'7", but it seems that she is at least around 5'6.5".

5 foot 6.

I agree with JJ that Evan Rachel Wood is very slim, I think 5'5" is correct but... 5'6 looks perfect for her too.
said on 25/Mar/11Click Here
<- Next to 5'10ish Eva Amurri (in flats) in heels and she's only a little taller than her, I reckon she's 5'6 (as the site suggests) or maybe slightly under... She's very slim though and so often looks taller I guess :P
D.D. said on 17/Dec/10
This is way beyond exaggerating. She's 5 foot 5, MAXIMUM.
Josh said on 4/Dec/10
she does look 5'6
Clay said on 3/Jul/09
CoCo, Jim Sturgess is in the 5'11.5 - 6 foot range, 6'2 for him is impossible as can clearly be seen in 21 and his interview with Kimmel.
Clay said on 3/Jul/09
She has to be at least 5'7. She looked in whatever works. Although she has a skinny frame that can make her look even taller.
lexi said on 22/Mar/09
5'6 is more like it. I recently saw The Wrestler and she had on boots that made her about 5'8. She was shorter than Rourke (who's 5'11) by about 3 inches in them. Great actress and I'm looking foward to seeing her in more films.
-- said on 21/Jan/09
She's 5'5- the reason they put her at 5'8 and 5'7 is because that where she's at with heels
5 ft 3 said on 6/Jan/09
She's taller than 5 ft 6 by about an inch. I say she's no less than 5 ft 7.
Josh said on 19/Nov/08
5'6 is right the 5'8 listings are just the classic hollywood 2 inch lift .
said on 5/Jul/08
Standing next to Gwyneth Paltrow -Click Here
I'd say 5'6" is about right.
diana said on 3/Jun/08
i was looking at her in across the universe alongside sturgess and she looks like a solid 5'6
Stephanie said on 29/May/08
5'6" or 5'7". Some people are saying 5'8" now but who grows at her age? She'll be 21 this year... and she doesn't look 5'8" either! It's the heels.
Anonymous said on 13/Apr/08
she's definitly not more than 5ft6. but she's thin so she looks taller.
CoCo said on 23/Mar/08
no when she was 14 she did thriteen and holly hunter who is 5'2" but wore 5 inch heels and was still shorter by an inch or so than evan.
Anonymous said on 22/Mar/08
So now Evan is pushing 5'9"? Okay tell me one thing, why is it when there are photos of her next to her Outside of Anger castmates she always clearly shorter than 5'8" Alicia and 5'10" Joan, while roughly around Erika's and Keri's heigths?
Face those Mikey photos are taken at a very weird angle. Not a good comparison at all.
david said on 21/Mar/08
When she was 13 or 14 Evan was listed at only 5'2 or so, but by the time she was 16 she was 5'7. Could it be that she looks even taller than she actually is, because it seems her growth spurt endowed her with rather long arms and legs for that height.
emilywood said on 21/Mar/08
haha im evan's cousin and im tellin u the truth. there is not way she is only 5'6". im tall for my age and im 5'8" and she is about the same height as me or maybe a half an inch taller.
brett said on 20/Mar/08
there's no way she's 5'9 I would top her out at 5'5 to 5'6
CoCo said on 12/Mar/08
i think she is about 5'9" because if u look at the pic with her and jim sturgess she has about 4 inch heels on and is only about 1 inch shorter than jim. jim is around 6'2"
brett said on 9/Feb/08
evan is about 7 or 8 inches shorter or so than marylin manson
Kady said on 20/Jan/08
5'6 1/2 - 5'7" (better choice) works a bit better. NOW see a pic of her next to Marilyn. Go to Google and type in "Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson" and click on the very first picture of you (Marilyn wearing a hat and Evan with socks on with black heels on with shades). Marilyn is around 6'1" - 6'2" or so. In this picture, he has about 3 inch heels on, making him 6'4" or 6'5" (in the first pic). See how she has about 2 inch heels on? She's almost a head shorter. But standing next to even high-heeled Marilyn, she is taller than 5'6". Someone around 5'3" or 5'4" could just reach his shoulders in this picture, but her in this picture being so claimed as what I think is 5'7" with 2 inch heels (5'9") would be more accurate.
glenn said on 12/Jan/08
ive never seen her.douglas is 5-9 or 5-10.depending on whats in his shoes.i think heard her mentioned at 5-7 alot.5-6 does sound low.but im not good at telling womens height.the heels throw me off.
CJ said on 11/Jan/08
No way Evan Rachael is 168, in face's photo she is standing straight, even having lifts, and she is the same height as Douglas, maybe 1cm taller then him!without the lifts, i don't know, maybe 173cm.. Glenn what do you think?
said on 30/Nov/07
ole mikey wears lifts, ck this photo out of Ms Wood and he,perhaps she is 5'8Click Here
Anonymous said on 19/Oct/07
Sarah I've seen Upside of Anger too, and the height gap Evan had between Erika and Keri wasn't clear at all. At times in that film she was slightly taller than them. Other times they were taller than her. I would thank camera angles for those alterations. The only that was clear was that the oldest sister 5'8" Alicia Witt had some good inches on all three of them. I just find it hard to grasp the idea that the gap between Evan and Keri, Erika is 1-4 inches, while the gap between Evan and Alicia is 2 inches- the same height?! Unless of course we bump up the height for the three sisters and Joan Allen too. Then there's also those photos of her with Michael Douglas at Sundance.
myspace celebrity said on 4/Oct/07
does that make jamie bell like...5'8 then?
steph said on 29/Sep/07
she looks 5 7.
said on 21/Jun/07
with Gabrielle Union she looks taller than 168cm (considering Gabrielle is listed here as 170cm):
Similar footwear...slight angle advantage for Evan I believe. I think 5'6.5 was the most accurate for her.
Priscilla said on 19/Jun/07
I've seen her listed anywhere from 5'5 - 5'9; 5'6 fits and looks pretty accurate. I don't know how anyone could think her pretty--I think she looks rather haggard and at BEST average. I do, however, think that Evan Rachel Wood is a good actor. If I were to meet her and her personality was nice, then I'm sure I'd find her better looking because that kind of thing can really change the way I percieve the way someone looks. We're all entitled to our opinions, and there's mine. I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything or change their minds. She's thin and wears heels and recently dark clothing, which make anyone appear taller. I think that 5'6 is a fair estimate.
Anonymous said on 4/Jun/07
Mostly everywhere i read that she's 5'8', however her actual stated height IS 5'7'
Sarah said on 4/Apr/07
5'6 is too short for her. I always thought she looked like a solid 5'7. She is a slender girl and is tall.
said on 26/Jan/07
Pictured here with Micheal Douglas (5'9" according to this site - peak 5'10"):
Both are standing about the same and looks like about 1.5 - 2 in difference to me and Evan is wearing about 3" heels: Click Here
Judging from these pics and after seeing here in Running With Scissors next to Paltrow (whose height is debatable) I'd say she's about 5'5.5"
Jordan said on 21/Jan/07
She seemed so tall in the movie, almost 5'10ish.... I guess the camera angles and shes really thin. but yea 5'6.5" sounds right.
said on 11/Jan/07
Hope this works:

For your consideration: (Granted you can't see what kind of shoes their wearing)
said on 8/Jan/07
5'6 is a tad too short. She's either 5'6 1/2 or 5'7.
With Cate Blanchett (5'8.5)
Josh said on 2/Dec/06
5'6 is posible sometimes she doesnt seem to be a solid 5'7.
Rose said on 22/Nov/06
5' 6.5 was by far the most accurate.
said on 20/Nov/06
For your consideration, she seems like she's about 5'6" max, I don't think she's quite 5'7"
With David Bowie and Scarlet: Click Here
With Annette Bening: Click Here
Notice in the pic with Bening (5'8"), Evan's heels are slightly bigger and Bening's posture isn't the best (left knee is bent) yet Evan (standing up straight) is still slightly smaller than Annette. I'd say barefoot Evan is about 2" or slightly more shorter than Bening, 5'6" seems about right to me.
Maddie said on 28/Oct/06
I agree with Coffeecakes... 5'7.
Nomi said on 21/Oct/06
5'6 seems too short for her, 5'6 1/2 was far more accurate. She is clearly taller than 5'6.
Wearing normal heels she came pretty close to Cate Blanchett and Annette Benning both who are around the 5'8 5'9 frame.
Anonymous said on 17/Oct/06
How tall do you think Nikki Reed is? Evan seemed to be around 1/2 an inch taller than her in the movie Thirteen.
[Padraig: I watched Pwetty Persuasion and this girl looked a little bit shorter than 5 feet 4.5 Krakowski when they were facing each other outside a courtroom. Jane had on heels, and Wood must have been in thinner styled shoes.
I think I shall potentially incur the wrath of Rob by removing half an inch from this listing, but I'm sure he would agree with me.]
Coffeecakes said on 22/Sep/06
I say 5'7. There are pics of her with Cate Blanchett and Annette Bening and they are both at least 5'8 and those three ladies are towering over Sofia Coppola and Sally Field.
Sarah said on 1/Sep/06
She looks 5'7 to me.
She was clearly the second tallest behind Alicie Witt in The Upside of Anger and with normal heels on looked neck in neck with Alicia Witt in the move and even at the premiere looked tall.
She is taller then 5'6 Elizabeth Harnois in Pretty Persuasion.
5'7 seems perfect.
A said on 30/Jul/06
She is probably 5'4. In heels she looks 5'6.
me said on 21/Jun/06
She is at least 5'6 to 5'7. I stood right next to her and talked to her a few years ago at Sundance. I am 5'2, had on 2 inch boots and she was wearing tennis shoes, with just an average sole. She was easily 2 inches taller than me, if not a bit more.
girl said on 7/Jun/06
In all of the pictures with the cast in Upside of Anger, she is similar in height to Keri Russel who is 5'4. I would say she is 5'5 or 5'5.5 at the most. There is no way she is any shorter or taller than that.

I agree with your guess. But do you know what Kevin was wearing?

Sanguine said on 15/Apr/06
Check out this pic of Evan and Kevin Bacon (5'10"), I think she's wearing boots with at least a good inch or two soles. 5'5.5" - 5'6" max.
Anonymous said on 22/Mar/06
Either way, is it me or does Evan seem to have unusually long limbs for a girl of her height?
anonymous said on 19/Mar/06
Rent Girl,I would say 5'5.5 and 5'6 is a good guess. She doesn't look shorter than 5'5 but she doesn't look as tall as 5'7 either.
anonymous said on 19/Mar/06
In reply to Taryn. I don't think actresses always lie about their heights. A lot of the time their publicists are the one's who lie about such things. Also many people do not know what their actual height is and often make wrong estimates.
said on 19/Mar/06
Look at this recent pic of Evan and Jamie Bell(5'7) w/ 3 inch heels. She looks about 5'5.5 or 5'6.Click Here
What do you think?
trueheight said on 17/Mar/06
Editor, your post w/ Joan Allen and Wood. Notice 5'4 kerri Green??? Wood is 5'5.5 max, she needs to be downgraded
taryn said on 7/Mar/06
she's 5'6 at the most. why do actresses always lie about their heights? why wont somebody change her height from 5'7 to 5'6?
Stephenie said on 3/Mar/06
Evan is 5' 7", and Michelle Trachtenberg looks a little shorter, so she's about 5' 6.5".
Di said on 12/Feb/06
Heightfreek, go to shortsupport.org, then Discussion Boards, then the Impartial Height increase board. A lot of people have posted comments and success stories on different techniques.
anonymous said on 1/Jan/06
It's hard to tell. There are no pictures of them close together. Tough from the picture that I saw of them Evan looked to be around two inches taller than her.
Cassie said on 31/Dec/05
I don't think Evan is that much taller than Keri Russel (who's listed as 5' 4").
Amanda said on 27/Dec/05
I thought Evan was 5' 8" by now. I guess not.
Stephenie said on 15/Dec/05
They adjusted the camera angles in Thirteen, and Holly Hunter's shoes were HUGE, while Evan wore tennies/flats the entire time. Evan is easily 5' 6"-5' 7".
anonymous said on 31/Aug/05
I've seen a few pictures of her next to Michelle Trachtenberg and they are about the same height. Michelle is listed as 5'7 on the imdb and I would say she is probably around that height.
anonymous said on 9/Aug/05
I recently saw her on an episode of CSI. She looked to be close in height to an actress on the show who is listed as 5 foot 6. I think she's probably just a little under 5 ft 7.
Heightfreek said on 12/Jul/05
Di, can you tell me more about these streching exercises please
Di said on 9/Jul/05
No, Heightmax and Grow Taller supplements are SCAMS. The only way to grow taller as an adult is stretching exercises (2-3 inches max, mostly in the spine).
Kat said on 8/Jul/05
I've seen her listed as 5 foot 6. I'm pretty sure her height was underestimated when she was younger because I saw her on a show a few years back and she looked taller than 5 foot 2. I also saw her standing next to Holly hunter at an awards show and as far as I remember she was significantly taller than Holly. My guess is that she is probably around 5 foot 6 or 7.
Heightfreek said on 28/Jun/05
Hmm, some how I doubt she has grown 5 inches in such a short space of time. Thirteen was shot only last year. Btw Dave, I keep seeing these links for "HeightMax" and "Grow Taller Supplements". Any idea if these actually work?
Hanne said on 27/Jun/05
She could have grown since she shot Thirteen since she is still a teen.
Heightfreek said on 31/May/05
Evan is no where near 5 ft 7 and let me conclusively prove why. I watched the movie thirteen. Evan is barely 1 or 2 inches taller than Holly Hunter who is listed as 5ft 2. This settles it. check out the following link where evan and holly are standing side by side (neither wearing heels)
EvertonDave said on 4/May/05
Might be one of those cases of appearing taller because of a very slender frame. Evan and Hillary Duff for comparison: http://evan.fan-sites.org/pictures/albums/userpics/scans/teenpeople/1.jpg
Mr. X said on 3/May/05
I think she probably is shorter than 5 ft 7. That photo that CelebHeights Editor provided shows it. I've seen photos of Erika Christensen where Natalie Portman (5'3") and Tara Reid (5'4" or 5'5") stands as tall as her. And both photos are from pretty straight angles. I also saw a photo of Keri Russell where her former Felicity costar Jennifer Garner was stand right next to her like in that photo below, and Garner looks about 4 inches taller than Keri. That would make both Keri and Erika somewhere in the 5 ft 4 in range, and if Evan was 5'7" she should be noticably taller than them, but she's not.
said on 29/Apr/05Evan and 178cm Joan Allen
. It must be true that Joan Allen is at least 182cm if Evan's 5ft 7...Same size heels, nearly identical camera distance...but nearly 5 inch difference. Of course, I will ignore any postural differences and say that Allen is truly 6ft ;)
