Janeane Garofalo's Height
5ft 1 (154.9 cm)
American actress best known for roles in films such as Reality Bites, Mystery Men, Wet Hot American Summer and Dogma. She was very candid when talking to BUST magazine about her height, admitting that the only thing about herself she liked was being short and "people in general, I find lower to the ground more appealing. I'm used to short people. I'm 5'1", my sister's 4'11", my brother's 5'6", mom 5'2", father 5'7", so I'm very comfortable around dwarves, and all my extended family is very tiny and most of my friends have been on the very short side."

Janeane just said on a podcast that she met Ellen Page and "Towered" over her. Seeing as both their heights are listed as 5'1, it's fair to say somebody is lying.

I stood next to her, that is very honest.

Here's someone who embraces her true height, unlike so many hollywooders who are insecure and always adding that extra inch or two. Good for her!

Just met her on the streets of Vancouver--she asked me for directions. 5'1" is pretty much accurate.

I stood in front of her at whole foods one time in Union Square. I knew it was her, but I didn't say anything. I wanted to tell her how awesome I think she is, but yea she is small.

no no she's shorter than 155 i think she's 150 or 151 she was very short in "the truth about cats and dogs"

even in her movies like "The Truth About Cats and Dogs" she says she's 5'1" Go Janeane!!! Hollywood has gotten so obsessed with being thin and tall I think it's great that Janeane embraces her unique qualities

I know that she herself has admitted she is 5'1" and has confessed that she wears huge platform shoes and tries to cover their height by wearing big pants.

I tend to say 5ft 1 when I'm only 5ft. I find it hard to believe she would be as short as me though maybe 5'4?

Feel good Rachel cause she might even be 5ft!

I heard 5'2" once, but people love to "heighten" the short ones! This is great, because I'm 5'1", and I have yet to find a celebrity of this status. Woo!
