Isla is far from being "circus-freak short" - 5'2"!
MAD SAM said on 25/May/18
Amy Adams is 2” taller than Isla at least, she 156 cm in my opinion
Mimi said on 15/Mar/18
Rob if both of them are standing straight there would be no more than 7 inches with them so I think Isla is a strong 5ft2 range since Gal can't be under 5ft9.

I think Gal is probably losing half or 3/4 inch more than Isla in the photo.

5'2" is only two inches under average. Take two feet off that for circus act . This broad I'd say is 5'0".🌽
Lili said on 20/Aug/17
Circus-freak short? Then she's not 5'2 ;) Looks shorter than around 5'3 Amy Adams and Amanda Seyfried
Shannon said on 16/Jul/17
5'2", 5'3"?
Sarah said on 12/Jul/17
157 or 156
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jun/17
Doesn't look at all leggy to me, I would have guessed 5 ft 3 or 4 from your photo Inteval. I still think 5'1.5 is on the money, see her with Salma.
Inteval said on 6/Jun/17
Rob I'm surprised at her height. Look at this picture, she actually looks leggy Click Here

When I saw her in that picture, I guessed her height before checking and I thought that she looked somewhere around 5 ft 7 to 5 ft 9. What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob: she might have a figure that can photograph taller...if her head was half inch longer I think she would seem nearer what she claims.

No way she is 5'2''.she is 5'0'' max
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Nov/16
I've read that Isla is 5ft1 AND 5ft2, in different magazines, of course! I personally go with 5ft1! There's no way she could be 5ft3 as she stated back in 1998!
Max said on 21/Nov/16
My little Niece who is 10, is 5'2". She stood next to Isla and had a good inch or more on her when she met her a year ago, in L.A.
Rojina said on 27/Nov/15
I met her outside Charing Cross when I was 20. I looked around 4 or 5 inches more than her and we wore same inch trainers so she must be 5"1
lara said on 22/Aug/14
I swear I remember reading in a magazine years ago and she said she was 5"0. She has honestly never looked taller than that to me. 5"1 is really pushing it imo.
Arch Stanton said on 24/May/14
Honestly it was, Smash Hits or something. Happy to admit I saw her in rather less clothing in lads mags like Maxim and FHM which I used to buy in the late 90s!!!
Crash said on 22/May/14
Another very attractive red haired woman. I've always liked her.

@Arch: your sister's magazine? Right... that's what they all say lol.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Jan/14
Quite surprised she'd be your preference Rob, I though you had a particular thing for the red headed lady! Salma is smoking hot though, I'm not surprised, I agree!
Arch Stanton said on 12/Nov/13
True, I guess until she's literally measured at 5'1" on a stadio you'll not change this listing hehe! How lucky is Sacha though being sandwiched between Isla and Salma!!
[Editor Rob: not a bad situation, I'd prefer Salma myself though]
Arch Stsnton said on 11/Nov/13

OK that's a fairer view, Fisher and Hayek look virtually the same height assuming footwear is similar. I think Hayek has the edge. She needs a downgrade IMO, your call though Rob!
[Editor Rob: they are very similar, but without knowing shoes, which might not be identical.]
Arch Stsnton said on 11/Nov/13
I still think 5 ft 1 is right, and it's what she claimed in a magazine of my sister's back in her Home and Away days I'm pretty sure on that one.
Arch Stsnton said on 11/Nov/13
Rob Click Here Don't you think that Salma Hayek seems taller, nearer the camera or not? Proportionally Isla looks a bit smaller to me.
nofearsorregrets said on 6/Nov/13
Because they got the idea that more height equals more protection which isn`t completely true.For example a 6ft something man is not invulnerable to a gun or a knife or this same dude could get beat up by a 5ft 7in man who is a karate user.Many ladies should be less shallow in this height matter and also date 5ft 3,4,5,6,7,8,9in men.there is nothing wrong with being a short male, people can`t pick their height.Ladies how would you feel if the guy that you are into, rejected you for the size of your boobs or your skin color.Think it throught!
K said on 26/Jun/13
I'd say she's somewhere from 5' to 5'2. Why do such little women always seem to marry such big men?
Silent d said on 23/Jun/13
She is really short. 157cm. Still hot.
K said on 7/Jun/13
I saw a picture with her a Reese Witherspoon and she was barely taller but you couldn't see their shoes. I'd imagine she's around this. I doubt her 5'3" claim because she really does look a little more than a foot shorter than her 6'3" husband. I wouldn't say she's less than 5'1.5"
Hazel said on 7/Jun/13
She was amazing in the movie now you see me, see short people can play young adults that looks like they're in their early twenties. Tall people not really. Look at Elle fanning, I thought she was 16 or 17, but she just turned 15 this year.
Jen said on 1/May/13
She's 5'2". Most actresses who are 5'2" and under claim 5'3"- 5'4".
Jessica said on 9/Feb/13
I agree with Arch Stanton and say 5f1 for Isla Fisher too. I found a pic of her with 5f1 Kristen Bell and they look the same height. Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/13
No, no, no, she's not 5'2-3" range LOL. She claimed 5 ft 1 without the shadow of a doubt in the late 90s!! The figure sticks in my mind as I associate that figure with hot little Shannon in a Summer Bay school dress!! Heheh!! Back then she was a little more honest, naturally she's going to claim 5 ft 3 in Hollywood now!! Shame on you for being taken in by Hollywood height!!
ArjunaKorale said on 9/Jan/13
I get Isla Fisher mixed up with American actress Amy Adams a lot of times. They are both attractive ladies & Isla is certainly a little cutie! The only thing is, Rob, if Isla claims that she is 160 cm (5 ft 3), could she not be so?
[Editor Rob: well it's not impossible, maybe she is in between 5ft 2-3 range.]
Arch Stanton said on 15/Dec/12

This is good good for estimating the height difference between her and Sacha, in flats here. She's around shoulder level which I think on a guy like Sacha would be roughly a foot shorter.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Dec/12
Rob, I think she actually claimed 5 ft 1 in an interview in one of my sister's old magazines when she played Shannon in Home and Away. She was clearly fully grown at the time too. I think that's why I am so convinced she is 5 ft 1, one of those things you read and it sticks with you. Can you look into this one Rob, I'm pretty sure on what she said and if you look at her and being under 7 st more chance she is a little less than this.
jtm said on 16/Jul/11
looks no more than 5'1 to me but a good actress and very beautiful.
Marco said on 12/Jul/11
Yes isla is def 5'2. She is my idolya. Eyelah i la la love you.
ArjunaKorale said on 24/Jun/11
She is so SWEET AND SEXY - i'd place her anywhere between 157 and 160 cms i.e. between 5ft 2 and 5ft 3 inclusive!
ana said on 10/Jun/11
argh, no one is saying that someone is better or worse than others beacuse of her/his height. Please, in this website we just wanna know how tall someone is, just for CURIOSITY. get away from here, drama queens.

[Editor Rob: you've said it exactly!]
Jessa Dawn Di said on 9/May/11
there is nothing too be ashamed in height, still isla fisher is so pretty nobody can say she is not pretty am i right? Even though I didn't met her personally I am still hoping i can met her because she is my idol.. she did a good job and effort in her job. Even she is 5'3 height she always accepted of what she is. It is much better to be not tall but with a good heart and personality is enough for everybody. Good luck everyday Isla. God bless to you and to your Family. I hope i can see you personally
anda said on 31/Mar/11
she's a very good actress. she's short but she have the guts in anything.:)
being short is not a problem because someone invented heels. thanks to him/her. i do love heels because it makes me so professional in anything, also, heels will give you a 100% poise.:) here's the thing, it's better to be short but pretty gorgeous Hot than to become tall Fat and Ugly.:)
Anonymous said on 30/Jun/09
Is isla really ony 5'2", she appears atleast 5'6" everywhere
Sarah said on 26/Jun/09
I met Isla years ago and she was so kind and lovely to me. I am 5'3 and we were looking directly at each other and she had flatties on, so I would definitely say she is 5'3. She is tiny and petite and absolutely gorgeous - inside and out.
Stargazer said on 15/May/09
Plus one for Anna on 09/04/08 - as a short girl myself it is disheartening when celebrities are not truthful about their height. Which is why we end up squeezing ourselves into ridiculous shoes and telling white lies about our height. If they would be proud and trumpet their height it would do a lot for the self esteem of women who look up to them (no pun intended!). As I said in March I would say again - she is 5'0. She was standing right next to me, we were both in flats. I've only seen two celebs up close so I've kind of stored up all the details! x
meep said on 29/Apr/09
I think she looks great with Sascha. I am 5.2 and my boyfriend is 6.5 and we fit very nicely!

Anna says on 9/Apr/08
I am so tired of these short people lying about their height. I am 5'1". I know exactly what a 5'2" woman looks like next to a 6'5" man. Regardless of shoes. Vince Vaughn (at 6'5) towers over her in a way that is very telling. If Isla is 5' she should consider herself lucky. I think she's shorter. The only thing freakish about being 5' is lying about it.

-Totally agree with this comment. I am 5'3" and it is obvious judging from her structure, her torso and legs that is, that she is definitely NOT 5'2". Her body is just really short. Besides, people in Hollywood ALWAYS add 2 inches to their height. She is beautiful but I would say she is 4'11' or 5'0" at best.
Anon said on 15/Apr/09
5'2" is acually a normal height, i think the most common range is 5'1"- 5'9" (I think!!!)
Debbie said on 24/Mar/09
I don't think 5'2 is that short. Yes it's a little less than the average of 5'4-5'5 but it's not like being 5'2 means you're a dwarf, hardly lol
Stargazer said on 22/Mar/09
Isla is 5'0. We saw Isla and Kate Richie years ago, right next to us before they made their way out, in a packed Camden tube station, before she boyfriended her way to Hollywood success, and she was shorter than me, and I am 5'1". She is extremely slender also.
runt said on 10/Mar/09
leonari, 5-2 women are like 5-7 men; 5-5 men are like 5-0 women.
Phil said on 8/Mar/09
leonari, you missed the 'that' part of what I said. I know 5'2" is short and I have not said otherwise.

5'5" men are not as common as 5'2" women, so this isn't a good comparison. And that last part you posted - you need to calm down here.

the shredder says on 4/Apr/08
I don't know whats worst ... Her being 5'2 and saying she is Circus Freak Short

- ^ The above was the point I'm making here. 5'2" is not "Circus Freak Short", it's only 2.5-3 inches from median height.
leonari said on 6/Mar/09
phil: 5'2 is short! There are also millions of 5'5" men. They are also short. Get our act together and stop posting random bull
MD said on 15/Feb/09
If she's 5'2", wouldn't this make Hugh Dancy shorter than what he's listed, here?

5'2" is actually pretty short.

- It's not "that" short. There are millions of women 5'2" and under.
Michael said on 15/Feb/09
funny...i just saw confessions of a shopaholic could've sworn she was atleast 5'6" or 7", i guess they really can make ppl look taller lol
Heightgal said on 23/Nov/08
She's not Eva Longoria short and is definitely over 5f. The thing with her is that she is usually always around really really tall people! Her husband is so tall at 6f3! I say that she is 5f1.
steph said on 2/Jun/08
i thought she was shorter. maybe it's because vince vaughn towers over her in wedding crashers.. and sascha is tall too.
glenn said on 9/Apr/08
i dont recall her looking that short.thats rather much.possible,but i doubt it.

C. said on 6/Apr/08
She may be even shorter. 5' can look like 5'2" to many people. Besides, her heels aren't normal 3" either. I'd say 5'1". And her comment is ridiculous-- I agree completely with UNK.
Random Person said on 6/Apr/08
...Ummm, she looked nowhere close to 5'0" in Wedding Crashers. The lowest you could argue would be 5'4". Granted, she was wearing heels but still...her being 5'0" would make Vince Vaughn closer to 6'2" which is next to impossible.

i cant tell.big boots.im also bending for the camera and i believe an umbrella.5-2,5-3 is possible.
UNK said on 2/Apr/08
I hate when people try to make stupid jokes about their height to act modest or whatever... Isla surely knows there are millions of women 5'2" and under.. "Circus Freak Short" that's just stupid.. way to make your younger 5'2" female fans feel like crap Isla!
Viper said on 2/Apr/08
If she thinks shes Circus Freak short, what does that make Eva Longoria? An ant?
Random Person said on 2/Apr/08
Looks between 5'3" and 5'4" in the picture(probably in heels and Glenn isn't stranding as straight as he could) and just as pretty as just does on camera. I believe 5'2" is right, a strong 5'2". Looked pretty much 5'5" throughout Wedding Crashers. That wouldn't be possible for anyone shorter than 5'2" unless she was in major platforms (which I seriously doubt). What height did she seem to you, Glenn?
leonari said on 23/Nov/07
I say 5'1. Looks very odd next to her husband.
Anonymous said on 7/Mar/07
She thinks she's circus freak short. Sounds like she doesn't have much self-esteem, with so many small women in hollywood I'm surprised that she feels that way.
Anonymous said on 10/Sep/06
You're right - i've got a few friends who are 5ft 2 and they're not THAT short at all!!! And with heels they don't appear short at all. Maybe it's her tiny frame that makes her appear so small - or maybe she just isn't quite 5'2.
Editor Rob said on 9/Sep/06
Sunday Mirror 2005:
"I'm only 5ft 2in - I'm circus-freak short"

That's actually pretty sad quote, 5ft 2 women are only 2 inches off 'average'!
honey said on 14/Aug/06
She's reportedly engaged to Sasha Baron Cohen, who is some 14 inches taller than her! Another of those weird looking couples like Will Smith and his wifey Jada, with more than a foot difference. One wonders how they managed to notice each other :)
Anonymous said on 20/Feb/06
In this month's Vogue magazine, she is described as "tiny and trim (she's five feet two)".
Serene said on 23/Jan/06
Can Isla be 5'3"? I thought you put Isla as 5'1"? What happen?

[Editor Rob: she's held onto 5ft 2 for a while...in crashers she mentioned she wore very big footwear]
sunbeame said on 18/Nov/05
From pictures i've seen definitly more like 5'. She looks really tiny. No way 5'2. I think this should be changed for sure! Just have a look at some of her pictures.
aussie said on 13/Oct/05
omg, no way is she as tall as 157 cm! id say no more that 5' max, did u see her in wedding crashers, she elfin!! even next to rachel mcadams who is 5'4.
CelebHeights Editor said on 31/Aug/05
Picking up on that comment she said on Craig Ferguson. Way back in Mirror newspaper, 1998 she said, "I'm 5ft 3ins and about 6st 10Ib (94lbs), although I don't weigh myself - I don't own scales".
tashiboshi said on 29/Jul/05
i adore isla and think that she is sooooo pretty, really the prettiest redhead around, but i was wondering when someone was going to call her on her real height. she looks over two inches shorter than naomi watts (i'll post the link some other time), and next to jane seymour at the wedding crashers premiere she looked two inches shorter than jane seymour. either way, isla is gorgeous, 5'1.5" would be extremely accurate i bet. go pretty isla!
Sydney said on 27/Jul/05
On the Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night he asked her how tall she is. She said something like, "I say I'm 5'3, but, really, I'm quite a bit under that."
So I'm guessing maybe 5'1 - 5'2?

[Editor Rob: as I said above, in Home and Away she really did look quite short and I think 5ft 2 is closer to her height...]
