I just watched 13 going to 30, thought she was in the high 160’s

Her ex husband Affleck is listed 1/4 too high but shes looking fine for 5'7 1/2.

πŸ’πŸŒΈπŸŽ‚ Happy Birthday Jennifer! πŸŽ‚πŸŒΈπŸ’

Still a cracker at 47!

I particularly enjoyed her performance in '13 Going on 30', wherein she danced Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' routine very well indeed. So did Andy Series for that matter - he played her boss!

5ft7.75 is my Birthday guess for Jen.

she has exactly the same listing as jennifer lawrence in here. both the official and the average guess
Paul Wood said on 23/Aug/18
I think she rounds up. Anywhere between 5ft 7.25in and 5ft 7.75in for her, but I don't think she hits the 5ft 8in mark.

Weak 5'8
Mary said on 16/Aug/17
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
rob i think 172 could be better listing 171 seems a litle low for her. 173 is to mutch
Realist said on 13/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.
A 171cm male said on 13/Feb/17
She a tall gal I'd say
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Dec/16
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.
Cacau said on 3/May/16
I think she's shorter than this. She with Mark Rufallo with 5 cm heels

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.
Adam 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.

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"

A possible weak 5'8" for Garner. I believe she is around the 172cm mark. She don't look that short anyway.

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
dmeyer 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

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?
Lanzarote 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:

In catch me if u can she was the same height as leonardo dicaprio with heels on. I would say she's 5 foot 8 at most no taller.

she had probably 1 cm heels and glenn had 3 cm and she barely looked shorter she might actualy be strong 5 ft 8 glenn reaches 5 ft 9 to 5 ft 9.25 with shoes on minus 0.5 in that 5 ft 8.5 to 5 ft 8.75 garner without flats that is exactly 5 ft 8 i support rob listing
Realme2008 said on 14/Aug/08
Rob, I noticed in the picture that was taken down Jen was shorter than Glen by half an inch. I let it go, because it could have been different posture or something like that. I just recently just read on her that Glenn is actually 5'7.5", and not a full 5'8". So it stands to reason that Jennifer Garner is actually 5'7" or 5'7.5". Can you please change this?

[Editor Rob: he said she had flats and glenn never sent in the one where he said she 'towered' him by heels.]
dmeyer said on 14/Aug/08
i think she is 5 ft 8 or atleast 5 ft 7.5 5 ft 7.75 is a possibility i think she has the perfect height for a women he she looks so sweet ,
Akshay said on 24/Jul/08
I think she's around the 5-7 mark. In heels she can look really tall as Glen said that she would tower over him.
Rara said on 6/Jul/08
There is a photo of Jennifer with Ben where she is in flats and appears to be at least a foot shorter than him. I know he is very tall but I'm guessing he's no taller than 6'6".

Here' s the link to the photo not sure if you'll be able to see it

in flat she is gonna look 5 ft 7 compare to 1 to 1.25 in men shoes i think she is 5 ft 7.75 if she stands tall she would be the same as glenn pus she has flats so rob has her right glenn is 5 ft 9 to 5 ft 9.25 with shoes on so she could even be 5 ft 8.25
senora said on 16/May/08
I was lucky enough to see Jennifer Garner recently in Boston. I stood only a few feet from her. She was dressed casually in jeans and sneakers....she is 5' 7" at best, but I would guess more like 5' 6".
DTA said on 16/May/08
Agree with timber, even if Gervais is the 5'8" he claims she's still no more than 5'7.5". Plus in a picture with Timothy Olyphant (6'0") she again looks almost 2 inches shorter than him even in heels.
Moi said on 7/May/08
Seriously get out your measuring tapes people. Some of you clearly have no concept of the heights you are talking about!. 5ft 6, you have got to be joking??!. That is my height and I am no where near Jennifer Garners height. She is a tall lady, my legs are not that long either, not even close. What is the obsession with downgrading people in height?. What a joke!.
timber said on 29/Apr/08
Even though they are walking in this series of pics, it seems that Garner, in heels, isn't much taller here than 5 ft 7.5 in Ricky Gervais.: Click Here

Liza said on 25/Apr/08
Okay, I'm watching 13 going on thirty right now, and her next to Mark ruffalo is the same height, when shes wearing like 3 inch heels. I would say she's about... 5'5, 5'6.
glenn said on 10/Apr/08
i think she can straighten out more.maybe.she did seem shorter than i though.i got her in heels in 2003 and she was towered me i thought.here she had flats.
an0n said on 10/Apr/08
glen shes shorteer than you and it looks like a good photo with both of you havin good posture so she cant be 5ft 8...5ft7 max
Mary said on 26/Feb/08
In 13 going 30 she was as tall as Mark Ruffalo. I think she's a strong 5' 8''.
Anonymous said on 25/Feb/08
next to michael cera (5'9"max) she is definitely 5'6" - 5'7".
Marissa said on 25/Feb/08
i think she's 5'6.5 or 5'7 - not 5'8 though. She's a very athletic, strong girl - and I think 5'7 is quite tall! Especially if she's in heels at funcions!

Jennifer appears to be wearing no makeup in the picture with Glenn and still looks pretty decent. With makeup shes very pretty. Thats good since some celebs like Eva Longoria without make up look under mediocure.

Glenn did you ask her if she knew what freedom was lol!
Looks 5ft8 in films certainly!

i dont think she is standing straight enough.still 5-8.

She does look very close to your height Glenn.

She does look at least 5'8 in her movies or on TV.

no heels.dressed down.i thought originally maybe taller than 5-8 cause i would see her in heels.5-8 tops now.always a doll.

Glenn was she nice in person? She has always struck me as genuinely pleasant in T.V. interveiws.

Thanks
Alex said on 2/Feb/08
I don't know if shes in heels or not with Glenn but she's looking 5'8 though since Glenn is a little closer to the camera so she'd be at least his height.
leonari said on 2/Feb/08
Glenn: Can she be taller than 5'8"??
mon said on 2/Feb/08
i think she's 5'9 too. in juno she seems tall when she's in the mall, i dont know what scene that was, but even in this picture, shes not standing straight, so probably closer to 5'9, maybe 5'8.5 or so..

C. said on 22/Dec/07
I think she's 5'7". She wears heels and thick-soled shoes/boots (in Alias) often, so it's easy to see her as being taller than she actually is. And there's no way she's 5'9"-10". She may be quite tall, but not to that extent.

The "blonde girl" in 13 going on 30 is 5'10'' so I would guess that Jen's height (5'8'') is right, though I thought she was 5'9''

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.]

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

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)
anonymous2 said on 12/Nov/06
She looked the same height as Mark Ruffalo in 13 going on 30, and Mr. R thought Ruffalo was 5'6.

[Padraig: With a slouch he probably looked that short to a near 6 foot man.]

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!
