I'm 5'4" in real life, so in the film I wore seven-inch platforms under my dress because I play Tom Hiddleston's sister, and he's, like, ginormous.

Amy Adams is clearly taller than Jessica Chastain

She’s well proportioned and struck me as taller than that, like 5’5-5’6. 5’4 seems reasonable though.
Alanna said on 25/Feb/23
I don’t think she’s as short as 5’2. I believe she’s somewhere between 5’3-5’4 since that’s average anyway.
Jtm said on 25/Feb/23
nah i agree with Irshgrl500. she's not 5'4 in a million years.
Nik Ashton said on 25/Feb/23
@ Irshgrl500 - Jessica is average and when she’s in her heels she’s taller than most!
Zuber said on 24/Feb/23
She is not that short @Irshgrl500

Hi Rob,
Jessica looks tiny next to average or taller ladies. She's very cute & tiny. I say no way is she more than 5'2", and weighs 95#, at best.
ChristianPerkins said on 17/Mar/22
Yep, Jade's way taller than just 6" than Jessica.

How about a page for model Jade Parfitt? Her 6'1" listing seems pretty legit, at least next to Gwendoline Christie, though Jade has camera advantage.

James McMichael, what the heck are you talking about?

I saw her in a movie and she was definitely 5'3.5 max looked like she might be close to lupita nyongo in height. She was in 2 inch heels and still not taller than anyone and looked kind of short even so she looks great to be 44 I would say 125 to 130 pounds is about right.

Jessica has the presence of a person considerably taller. I was surprised when I first found out that she wasn't around 5ft6 or so.

5ft3.75. 😃🌹

Shortest looking 5'4. Elizabeth Olsen might be tallest looking 5'4 compared to Jessica Chastain.
ALEXIZ/180cm said on 12/Jan/21
157 cm max or 5'2.
Jtm said on 30/May/20
i still think she's closer to 5'2 than 5'4. idris elba is a head taller in molly games even when she is wearing heels and noticeably shorter than julianne moore. maybe moore has higher heels but moore would still edge her out.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/May/20
My sister met Jessica a few years back mention she can't be 5'4 look a little shorter like between 5'3-5'3.5" so Rob nailed her listing too well. I did say close to 5'3 1/2 is a mid day height.

😊🎂👍 Happy Birthday Jessica! 👍🎂😊

Wishing Jessica a wonderful 42nd Birthday Jessica - still a lovely age! Always gorgeous, always brilliant, I first saw her in the excellent horror movie 'Mama'. I was hooked, and showed it to my boyfriend, who filled me in on other films of hers!

I always felt she looked taller than under 5ft4 because she's got such a slender figure, but today she gets 5ft3.75. I think the average is too low.
GRIT said on 5/Jan/19
Seems 5ft3 to 5ft3.5

Not over 5’3.5 barefoot. 5-6 inches shorter than Tom Hardy in 2/3 inch boots. Lawless photos.
Nik said on 15/Nov/18
Jessica is adamant about being 5'4"!
denisse said on 10/Nov/18
she is 5'2.

She gives impression of a tall woman but never noticed her heels, uh anyway she’s about 160 cm
jeb077 said on 24/Jan/18
amazing women, hollywood discovered her late.
Tall Sam said on 22/Jan/18
I thought she could pull off a solid 5'4" but maybe her heels have had me fooled at times.
DirectorKrennic said on 21/Nov/17
Stunning actress, unfortunate that she does not do photo ops.
anonheight said on 22/Aug/17
In candids with anne hathaway, jessica could be 5'5, even. she doesn't look that far from 5'8, but i'm not claiming she is, just saying their height difference in flat shoes isn't a great one
Alex said on 25/Jul/17
Michael Stulbarg who you have at 1.69 was taller than her in Miss Sloane with heels so I would say she is strong 1.60
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Oct/16
My introduction to this actress was in the horror flick 'Mama', in which she plays a dark-haired, sexy rock chick who goes to great lengths to help 2 little girls that are related to her boyfriend. I could tell she was tiny from her part in that film but I feel she has the presence of someone much, much taller!
Cliff said on 15/Sep/16
Photographic evidence points to a strong 5'3." Brandon's posting on her casting call stand-in nips it in the bud for me.
brandonknight said on 30/Aug/16
A recent casting call looking for her stand-in listed her at 5'3".

She's 5´2 max ... Look this picture: Click Here
jtm said on 5/Oct/15
how long will she be listed 5'4 here? she's clearly nothing over 5'3 and most likely shorter.
Editor Rob
while she might be somewhere in 5ft 3-4 zone, I wouldn't have thought arguing under 5ft 3 was possible...
Len said on 3/Oct/15
Wouldn't be shocked if she was really 5' 3.
jtm said on 27/Sep/14
the last post was from me.

she was clearly shorter than olivia munn in recent pictures. i hope rob will take another look at her because she doesn't look 5'4 when you see her with other people.
said on 9/Aug/14
look at her next to james mcavoy. mcavoy was probably wearing lifts but she is not a legit 5'4.
Sam said on 23/Jun/14
Really attractive in Mama in punkish get-up with dark hair, she has a nice body...she can come off taller due to her good posture, lean frame and heels, but only average height.
sixfooter said on 23/Aug/13
Good height for a gorgeous woman
Sam said on 8/Jan/13
Agree that 5'4" is her honest height. She's about a head shorter than Michael Shannon and Jason Clarke. She's also within a couple of inches of Tom Hardy's and Shia LaBeouf's similar heights in her heels.
Jim! said on 4/Aug/12
Beautiful woman, perfect height - 5'4 is right on. Chastain is a goddess.
Julie said on 12/Oct/11
Wow, I thought she was like 5'7 or more, she looks like a tall girl for some reason.
saef said on 4/Oct/11
yea yea it's true i think.
rajesh shakya said on 1/Oct/11

brandonknight said on 28/Aug/11
Yep, looks exactly 5'4" like I mentioned before.
