How tall is Jenna Elfman

Jenna Elfman's Height

5ft 10 (177.8 cm)

American actress best known for starring in the sitcom Dharma & Greg. In film she can be seen in EdTV, Keeping the Faith and Friends with Benefits. In FilmFestivals, Edward Norton commented on her height, saying "When he first met her, Ben (Stiller) sort of whispered to me: she's really great, but she's really tall!"

In Calgary Sun, Jenna said: "Oh goodness, I grew five inches in one year and there's a lot of phenomena that goes along with that! Trying to be a ballerina when your muscles are stretching, like, an inch a day?". Early in her career (1998) she commented that "I'm 5-feet-10 and I always re-measure myself, thinking I must have grown" and in Jan 2006, on a SanDiego website, said: "I'm 5-foot-10," I think," says the glamorously lanky blonde, explaining she's been dancing ballet again, which may have stretched her a bit."

Well, just because it’s the first thing on Google [Height], I don’t know that it means it’s the most relevant thing in my personal life. I’m 5'10". It’s not like I’m 6'3". The only time I really hear about my height is two scenarios.
If I’m wearing high heels, then I’m 6'2" and then everybody needs to comment on it. I can’t just be a girl and wear my high heels and have someone say, “Oh, you look great.” It’s, “Oh, my God, you’re tall.” So the high heels is kind of annoying because it becomes the subject of the evening.

Rob how tall do you think she is with these shoes?

It's at the 37 second mark. Thanks
Editor Rob
They give a fraction over 3 inches of height, so over 6ft 1, but maybe not quite 6ft 1.5
Mimi said on 12/May/18
She's really tall. In 3 inch heels she's coming in very close with Craig Ferguson who is in thick oxfords

She's 5'10 . Rob , you should add her to the Fear The Walking Dead tag , she's a main character.

5ft 10in is tall for a woman, but is a more common height for actresses than 4ft 10in, right?
Arch Stanton said on 16/May/17
She is quite a bit like Doris Day I think!
Arch Stanton said on 16/May/17
Looks even taller with Edward Norton in Keeping the Faith

Rob look at these pics with Jenna and Brooke Shields. Do you think Jenna could edge out Brooke?

J.Lee, in the photos she can edge Brooke out...I'm not sure if equal footwear/posture though, but certainly the idea of brooke at near six foot is unbelievable.

@the dude it's sad that teenagers these days don't know the legendary dharma and greg
The dude said on 1/Feb/16
She came into the Eye Shop in Clearwater, Fl. She was looking for some glasses for her son. I noticed her, but didn't make a scene because she seemed so nice. I'm 5'8 1/2" without shoes and she was taller than me by a solid inch. Sadly, I didn't say a word to her but told the receptionist who just been in her shop. Teenage girl replied with: "who?"....

Lorne I wouldn't rule out 6ft1½ at all for Gibson. He looked at least 6ft2 in that horrendous Flintstones movie from 2000 next to Mark Addy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/13
"Thomas Gibson's height is 6ft 1.5in (187cm)"

He looks near 6ft2 if this listing for Elfman is correct.
Rob, why isn't he listed here?
Peyman-6ft said on 23/Jan/13
aha , Yea I knew I'm shrter than him , but maybe a josh holloway edges him out.
Elfman is truly a solid 5'10'' by the way
Peyman-6ft said on 22/Jan/13
I guess that was pretty more like a question than just a statement ,
any answer Rob ?
I'm really gonna count on your guess for him
is 183-184 a fair shot for gibson or not ?
Editor Rob
I think 6ft 1 isn't improbable
Peyman-6ft said on 22/Jan/13
any estimate for thomas gibson Rob ?
I want you to destroy this 5'11'' guess for him .
mike 181cm said on 14/Dec/12
Norton is def 6 foot if shes 5"10
Silent d said on 15/Dec/11
178cm. I doubt she is over 180cm.
Just said on 3/Nov/11
Yesterday I saw an episode of "Dharma & Greg" with Claudia Schiffer (5'11) as a hot lawyer. Jenna looked taller than Claudia. I really think she needs an upgrade.
Silent d said on 21/Oct/11
Next to timberlake she was an inch shorter. He's 180cm. I think she is a solid 5 foot 10. She is really tall in all he tv shows and movies. I think gibson is 182cm. Dharma is definately 178cm.
LAN Jiao said on 30/Sep/11
pr, elfman could have wore alittle heels. gibson 6'2 was bs.. but gibson is enough tall to match beauty blonde jenna elfman. he cant be 5'11, his at least 5'11.5 to 6foot on the dot. about ashton kutcher no point argue he is 6'1 plus tall..
pr said on 25/Sep/11
She is 5´10" and Gibson is 5´11". The newest episode of Two and a half men with Asthon Kuthcer has Gibson and Elfman as a couple who were looking at Charlies house, they seemed simular in height. 6´2" for Gibson is horsecrap...
lan jiao said on 7/Sep/11
i remember as a kid i watch an episode of dharma & greg she say her height was 6ft. she ever listed 6ft as well and thomas gibson was often listed 6ft2 , funny that gibson only look 2inch on jenna elfman in dharma & greg without shoe effect. i supposed gibson was 6foot if elfman was only 5foot10.
P said on 22/Jun/11
she looks taller to me!!maybe 5'11"!but i think 5'10" should be right!
parand said on 21/Jun/11
i think she is really amazing!cant wait to see her at friends with benefit!! and i think she is at least 5'11" .
TheVerve180 said on 12/May/11
she wont intimidate me LOL. and yeah around 5ft10.
Attack 6 said on 14/Feb/11
Concur.... looks at least 5'11" to 6'
Just said on 21/Jan/11
She really needs an upgrade. She's closer to Thomas Gibson's height (in "Dharma & Greg") than Nicole Kidman is (in "Far and Away"). So she must be taller than Nicole Kidman.
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/11
Yeah, she's at least 5'11, she needs an upgrade Rob.
morgan said on 29/Oct/10
I am 5' 4" and even if Jen was a foot taller I'd still liove to have her around.

all everyone is the same height (approx) when recumbent.

I find her very amusing, and her recent character where she is pregnant adds those necessary pounds to her earlier skinny frame.

yoyo said on 7/May/09
if shes 5ft10 that makes Thomas Gibson 6ft not 6ft2..

She is taller than Ben Stiller, but not taller than Norton.

If jenna elfman is 5 foot 10 than brooke shields is 6 foot. In keeping the faith, she was taller than ben stiller and edward norton. In two and a half men she was an inch shorter than charlie and allan. I use to think she was 6 foot. Now I think she's lucky to be 5 foot 8. I would say she's between 5 foot 9-10. I think they used some camera trick to make jenna elfman look shorter on two and a half men. According to the getty pictures, i would say she's nearly 6 foot.
Big T said on 19/Nov/08
Evidence mounting for a max 5'10" Shields?
Jlee said on 31/Oct/08

Editor Rob
one thing is that maybe brooke is leaning back a little more so elfman's head is slightly nearer? That could account for some distortion.
Rezzzzz said on 19/Oct/08
NO way is she 5'10..Look at brooke shields (who supposely is 5'11-6') with jenna elfman and she's EASILY taller by a inch or two making her close to 6'1..
R1skate said on 16/Sep/08
Jenna is listed as 5'10" which seems about right. She is next to Brooke Shields on Gettyimages and she is about 1 or 2 inches taller. Brooke has high heels on and Jenna looks like she has about the same height heel on as Brooke. That makes Brooke 5'9" or less. If I stood next to either of them I could tell. I am 6'4" and being that tall it is easier to tell when someone is shorter than you about how tall they are. Very rarely do I look someone directly in the eye and only a few times have I had to look up at someone. They were all basketball players. One was 6'9" and he looked tall even to me.
joe II said on 10/Sep/08
i think 5'10 is about right, she looks nearly as tall as hugh bonneville in courting alex with 3" heels
Jlee said on 5/Aug/08
If you go look at brooke shields at getty images, jenna is taller than brooke noticeably even without shoes. could be the camera, but hey, she is NOTICEABLY taller
joe said on 25/May/08
5 ft 10 seems to be right! at premieres she is in big high heels (not really necessary for her height) but when she wears normal shoes in photos she is a little bit shorter than her husband/boyfriend!
ccola63 said on 24/Mar/08
well thomas gibson is listed as 6'2" so looking at them together in Dharma & Greg I would say 5'10.5" is about right
Odie said on 16/Dec/07
shes like 6'0 cause shes got like 3 inches on Shemar Moore when she is in high heels (heels give 2 - 3 inches) and he's 6'0...
DD80 said on 8/Nov/07
you guys are all missing the point ..

she maybe a little taller than 5'10" .. being closer to 5'11" ..

but that is not the screw up ..

the screw up is listing bodhi as 5'11" ..

i saw bodhi next to tom cruise and he appeared to be about a half inch shorter ..

tom is 5'7" ..
andrea said on 5/Nov/07
according to the "Keeping the Faith"
she looks no longer than 175(5.82)
ben stiller is 170(5.65)
dmeyer said on 21/Oct/07
if she keep mesuring herself at 5'10 then she is she is gotta be 5'10.75 to 5'11 morning
Crissy said on 27/Sep/07
She's way taller than Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer in two and a half men, and I saw with small heels on. So I think she is over 6 ft. She's a tall chick
Anonymous said on 18/Aug/07
Anyone see the commercial advertsing "Dharma & Greg" & "The Geena Davis Show"?? it shows both Jenna Elfman and Geena Davis in bare feet, being measured by a measuring tape to find out who is the tallest.... Jenna looks worried and Davis supremely confident... and Davis wins! Click Here

Looks taller no doubt. I´m guessing 6 ft.

Bad Radio said on 2/Jun/07
there's no way she's 5''es gotta be 5-11 or more like 6ft. I think 6ft is right for her.
Anonymous said on 1/Jun/07
This is definitely not the right height for her. She is closer to 6 ft and I am 95% sure. Her co-star on Dharma and Greg Thomas Gibson is 6'2 and she always appears to be his height with heels and is only slightly shorter without heels. She dwarfs her 5'11 husband at premieres even when she only has a 1 inch heel. We need a revision to 5'11.5
xD said on 13/May/07
Bodhi Elfman who is said to be 5'11" looks tiny next to her. I know she has high heels on, but if you take em off, she'd still be taller...
katja said on 17/Apr/07
I'm about 5'10'' and sometimes I wish I would be just a bit shorter. But then in the other hand, being tall helps me to stand out from the crowd. But this just always makes me wonder: how men like a woman who is this tall?
The Horse of FUNK said on 5/Feb/07
Her boyfriend/husband in real life is supposedly 5'11. If he's really 5'11 then she makes him look 5'9 at premieres and schtuff.
dmeyer said on 5/Feb/07
could be 5'10.25 like strong 178
The Horse of FUNK said on 4/Feb/07
Jesus Christ, this woman has got to be at least 5'10.5, AT LEAST. In heels at premieres she even has some good inches on Meat Loaf who is a definite 178 - 179cm guy. She's probably closer to 5'10'5, but claims 5'10 to both keeps things simpler and to not to sound so vertically dominating for a female.
Editor Rob said on 16/Dec/06
Boston Herald, from 1998:
"I'm 5-feet-10 and I always re-measure myself, thinking I must have grown", she says.
Frank2 said on 3/Aug/06
I worked with her when she starred in Dharma & Greg and barefoot she's 5'10". In heels she's well-over 6'.
dmeyer said on 2/Aug/06
could be 180 but dont forget that in heels a 178er can look 183-4 range maybe even 185-6 range if she wears 4 inches and reach 188 in shoes
D. Ray Morton said on 2/Aug/06
It's kind of funny the way that works. Many women over 5'10" actually downgrade. (Oh, to be in the position to downgrade!)

She does look a little taller than 5'10", I agree.

I saw her during an intermission at a little play that she attended. I would say she is at least 5'10''. I am nearly 5'8'' and she seemed a lot taller. Could be nearly 6'0''.
