Great height but...it's nice that she wears her heart on her sleeve, but she should've divorced Ben Affleck years ago. She still lived with him after he cheated on her numerous times. Many women stay with abused husbands because they can't afford to leave. She can. Get a new man, have some self-respect, and be a positive role model to your three children. Bens with another woman, pics all over the place and Jen, sigh, is out looking wistful with Bens mom. Crazy comes in all forms.

She doesn't quite look 5'8"!

Wants to be around 5'8" i think she is around that mark..
berta said on 15/Apr/17

That's why she looked so tall in Freedom Writers the teens were almost her height save for Mario and the Tall kids.
CC said on 11/Apr/17
Saw her after the 'Nine Lives' première had 4-5 inch heels on and was just under my height at 6" 1'. This makes her nearer to 5ft 8 imo.

She a tall gal I'd say

I LOVED Jen in the film '13 Going on 30' and the way she captured the childlike mannerisms perfectly! She was also likeable as the potential adoptive Mum in 'Juno'!
I disagree with anything under 5ft8! Unless she is one of those stars who gives herself another inch or so, and I can't see her to be one of those, then I simply have to agree with the 5ft8 she says she is. I might even have given her another half inch.

I think she's shorter than this. She with Mark Rufallo with 5 cm heels
said on 21/Jun/15
I'd say no taller than 5'7. Click Here
Affleck towers her by one full head. That's what a 6'3.5 guy looks next to a 5'7 person.
Dmeyer said on 14/Dec/14
5'7.25 is closer
stan said on 8/Oct/14
id say the height listed is about right. i dont think shes stunning, but cute/pretty would be more fitting. well, just my opinion.
Nial said on 5/Mar/14
she might be a somewhere between 5'6 and 5'7.
Balrog said on 2/Mar/14
She was almost same height that Benedict Cumbertach in the Oscars, she probably was wearing 6in heels that gives a little more of 5in, right Rob?
Sam said on 24/Feb/14
She's one of the most naturally pretty woman recently IMO at 42 (not that that's old!), even if she lies a half about her height according to here. Affleck lucked out there.
Edlt2882 said on 23/Jul/13
Was by her at Disneyland. She was wearing about the same shoes I was (sneakers) and was either my height or just a tad taller. I'm 5-7.25, so 5-7.5 for her would sound about right.
someone said on 29/Dec/12
she looks same height next to prince william as kate middleton+in a picture with kate they look around the same height (kate is standing closer to the photographer)
Dmeyer said on 13/Dec/12
5'7.5 strong 171cm make sens looks too small near Affleck to be 173cm
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
I think it was the angle that made olivia taller. 5 foot 7.5.
Silent d said on 10/Oct/12
Not 5 foot 8. She's shorter than olivia wilde i butter but she is taller than jessica biel. 5 foot 7.5.
Silent d said on 29/Jan/12
She's hot adam.I would say 5 foot 7 is perfect.
Steven Margolin said on 23/Nov/11
Met her in person a few times. I'm 6'2", and she's not that much shorter than I am. Could be her heels, though.
LAN Jiao said on 30/Oct/11
she look 5-6. her small head makes her 5'7 on screen.
said on 21/Sep/11
I'm not buying it; if she's 5'8 then Affleck is 6'4+. She's got a weird looking face too, like a dolphin lol.
puki mak said on 10/Jun/11
hmm.... 5'8 is right i guess
da_truth said on 26/May/11
In the movie "The Invention of Lying" standing next to5'8" Ricky Gervais, she was about an inch taller with 3 inch heels. She looked 5'5.5" to 5'6"
Jackson said on 5/May/11
A possible weak 5'8" for Garner. I believe she is around the 172cm mark. She don't look that short anyway.

Rob in Valentines Day, Dempsey is in shoes and garner barefoot and he still looked a lot taller than her, how?! o.o
said on 21/Mar/11
@Lanzarote:Explain me that:
Garner is clearly 5'8",because she's a little smaller than Holmes,peraphs...
And i meet her a lot of times,and she's a solid 5'8",i'm near her height(172cm)
I think Rob is right.
5 '11 said on 7/Mar/11
5'8 sounds right to me
SolidSnake said on 23/Feb/11
@shaun Matt Damon is closer to the camera which gives him the advantage. So I think 5'8 still stands
said on 10/Feb/11
rob i think by bed time she will be nearer 172cm wath do you think
[Editor Rob: possibly a weak 5ft 8 yes]
Deedee said on 6/Feb/11
she probably is 5 8, coz jlo is said to be 5 7 and she was to ben affleck in heels what jennifer is to him in flat shoes infact jennifer is taller so ofcourse jlos being 5 7 is bull**** and jennifer is definitely 5 8 no doubt. All you people think it's a must to disagree but this one is correct. Look at all her pics and her body structure
dmeyer said on 31/Jan/11
5 ft 7.75
said on 29/Jan/11Click Here
Looks 5'7" next to 5'10" Matt Damon. LOL if Damon is 5'8" as Brad and the other trolls claim then Garner looks 5'5" tops!!! Rob I'd say you have her a little too high here....
Danielle said on 9/Dec/10
Well,the photo is not avalable and maybe she was wearing heels.Cause Garner is 173cm and Katie Holmes is clearly 175cm.(Tom is shorter with tall shoes)
Bon said on 8/Dec/10
Based on that pic, Garner is 5'4 tops, assuming Holmes really is 5'9.
I wonder do all Hollywood women give their heights in heels?
said on 6/Dec/10
Something is very wrong here. If Garner is 5'8", then how is it that a 5'9" Katie Holmes absolutely towers over Garner by 4 or 5 inches in this recent photo:
Christine said on 30/Nov/10
She is 173cm,i meet her a lot of times and she is taller than me with flats.(i'm 171cm)
myspace celebrity said on 6/Oct/07
i agree with Alex
cant really see her being over 5'8 with the blonde girl in 13 going over 30
Alex said on 24/Sep/07
Looking at her in 13 Going on 30 today she looks a solid 5'8.
marlon said on 20/Sep/07
I met her last year and she looked much taller than me and I thought i was an average height. A full 5ft 9-10 for her.
Anonymous said on 15/Sep/07
She looked taller than him to me.
Anonymous said on 10/Sep/07
she was same height with high heels at least 3 inch as jaime foxx at vma he's 5'9"
DC Diva said on 9/Jul/07
If she's 5'8", I'm 7 feet tall. I saw her at an event in DC two years ago. She was wearing 4" platform heels and still wasn't as tall as me and I'm 5'9"
said on 19/Jun/07
small pic, but looks like Garner is a few inches shorter than 5'9.75 Charlize Theron:Click Here
said on 18/Jun/07
There is a pic of her today on People's website. She is in flipflops next to 5'10 Matt Damon and looks about 3 inched shorter than him. I'm saying 5'7.
[Editor Rob: angle is in damon's favor at least 1 inch in that pic, but the ground looks a bit rough. Too hard to say much with such pics.]
xD said on 26/May/07
she was standing directly in front of ben affleck in daredevil and she didn't look that much shorter than him, but she did have high heels so at least 5'8 - 5'8.5 :P
Judith said on 9/May/07
It seems that she is at least between 5'8" to 5'9" tall. I'm 5'8.5" and met her once in close proximity. I was wearing 2" heel and she's wearing flats, she seemed to be an inch shorter than I am. But minimum, at least 5'8"
brooke said on 27/Apr/07
I'm 5'8.75" and I've stood directly next to Jennifer on the set of Alias on several occasions in both flat shoes and heals and I can guarantee she is at the minimum 5'8" and possibly 5'9." I would say closer to 5'9," since we are essentially the same height.
Paul said on 8/Apr/07
This seems outrageous. Maybe it's just from my perspective. But in the dancing scene of "13 going on 30" she says that she was wearing 5 inch heels! And she was only about an inch, maybe two, taller than 5'8" Ruffalo.
joz said on 7/Apr/07
women lie about height and weight so standing with mark ruffalo at 5'9 she looked at least 3 inch shorter than her
Bel said on 3/Mar/07
yeah she looks 5'8, more 5'9 but i bet shes downsizing her height
[Editor Rob: she's shorter than gwyneth paltrow for certain, taller than melissa george on alias...I don't see her far from her 5ft 8 claim]
Alex said on 23/Jan/07
Glenn, have it posted if you can. What was your guess on her height?
Glenn said on 18/Jan/07
I have a photo of her and I from that set.
Alex said on 17/Jan/07
13 Going on 30 was on today. She looks to be a solid 5'8 girl for sure.
carla said on 16/Jan/07
However...she did mention in one interview that she was Jennifer Garner. Plus I've met Jen and she DOES seem 5"9. In 13 going on 30 she seemed the same height as Mark Ruffalo, however she was normally wearing heels so it would be hard to check.
Alex said on 16/Nov/06
I think she could be this height. She looks 5'8ish.
anonymous2 said on 13/Nov/06
very true; however, Mr. R also said he was with a friend, 5-8, who appeared at least 2 inches taller than Ruffalo, and who said that Ruffalo was "short". Mr. R remarked that Ruffalo wasn't slouching at the time (see 26/May/05)
Glenn said on 5/Nov/06
She towers over me in heels.so shes 5-8.
Anonymous said on 5/Nov/06
Don't think she's 5'8, in dare devil she looks shorter.
romeo said on 28/Sep/06
I have met her,I think she is tall,especially in heels.She is 6ft tall with heels ..
anonymous2 said on 10/Sep/06
I think she would look closer in height to 185cm Bradley Cooper if she was really 173cm (180,183cm with heels)To me she doesn't look 173cm, more 168/169cm.
Sara said on 25/Apr/06
Why do all the great actors have to be so tall. I am only 5ft1 I must be a midget compared to them!
Anonymous said on 12/Apr/06
5'8" in Hollywood means 5'6". I swear. And Gwyneth Paltrow is only 5'7" max.
azraea said on 17/Mar/06
i think she really is 5'8(though i really really wish that shes 5'7 lol)
175cm16andgrowing said on 7/Jan/06
5'7'' or 5'8'', she looks it... but she also can look 5'9'' sometimes... In Alias she looks a legit 5'8'', 5'11'' in heels.
Krista said on 7/Jan/06
She's 5' 10"-5' 11" in heels, which are about 3", so she's either 5' 7" or 5' 8".
Anonymous said on 21/Dec/05
The 5-9 listing is what her character's height is shown as on Alias.
Since there was no widely-known height listed for Garner (she wasn't well known before the show started), that's why you see 5-9 listed in places.
I think 5-8 is probably right, maybe 5-7 but no shorter.
Anonymous said on 17/Nov/05
I agree with Brett. She really needs to be downgraded to 168 cm. There is no way she is 5'8.
Brett said on 2/Nov/05
she looks about 5'6" 5'6.5" but not 5'8" its very easy to tell just by looking at her that she isnt that tall. 5'8" in heels Id believe
Anonymous said on 21/Oct/05
in 13 going on 30 she is the same height as Mark Ruffalo even a tad shorter when she is barefoot. And at the MTV movie awards 2003 if you see pictures of her next to Charlize Theron (5'10") Charlize is about 4 inches taller than her and she doesnt seem to eb wearing very large heels.

What the hell that pic is of JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT
[Editor Rob: did you read the post? the first post showed love hewitt and jennifer garner saying garner wasn't that big. I then showed love hewitt beside the 5ft 8 bradford at the same event which may support garner looking shorter than 5ft 8]
anon said on 25/Jun/05
She is definitely shorter than 5'8". In the paparazzi pics I've seen of her recently with Ben Affleck (6'2) (both wearing trainers) there is about an 7-8" difference between them, which would put her at 5'6-5'7.
Gigy said on 19/Jun/05
I thought she was 5'9/175 cm, (1.5 cm shorter than me), but 5'8 is more likely I guess!
Anonymous said on 12/Jun/05
i think she is 5/7
Elisabeth Grace said on 22/Apr/05
Jennifer appears to be this tall when standing next to 6'1" Victor Garber or 5'9" Ron Rifkin
