Every day for a week after 'Mystic Pizza' came out, people came up to me and said, 'I thought you were six feet tall.' To me, I'm average height. I'm five-foot-nine.
I am 5-8...Even though I always did want to be 6-0.

@ Tanner Duong - I visited Tanner Buchanan’s page just minutes ago! How tall are you?
@ Keith Bacchus - That is simply not true!

Julia Roberts is definitely not even 5 feet 8 .cameron diaz is taller than julia Roberts by far .how can julia Robert's say that she's 5 10 when she is shorter than cameron diaz who is 5 8 and Julia Roberts is couple inches shorter than cameron .julia Roberts is a liar claims she is over 5 8 .she only stand 5 7 0r 6 .😘😵😊♥️ in real life ..

I used to think Julia was 5ft10/11 and Richard Gere 6ft1. I don't know whether it's because I saw 'Pretty Woman' on the big screen, but I thought that for quite some time after seeing the film.

Rob, could you please add Ocean’s Eleven and Ocean’s Twelve to Roberts’ film credits?
I’d go with a flat 5’8” for Roberts. Don Johnson seemed taller than her in an episode of Miami Vice, even when she wore heels! However, Johnson may have been wearing lifts at the time.
Jtm said on 27/Jun/20
She is shorter than Carrie Ann moss despite platform heels and moss wearing normal heels. Why is she listed 5'8 here anyway? She never gives a towering impression on screen or pictures like a legit 5'8 does.
Keith Bacchus said on 14/Jun/20
The average adult in the uk is 5 foot 10 to 5 foot 10.5

She is nearly as tall as the average man and this is cool!

She was 5ft 7 3/4 peak, 5ft8 at most.
These days I think 5ft7 1/2 very likely.
Betty S. said on 22/Jul/19
She was with me in the women's room at Jacksonville airport. She was my height, about 5 feet 6 maybe at most 5 feet 7. No taller. She was wearing jeans, and flats. Very thin and avoiding looking at anyone. I looked up her height because I was struck by average she looked. I thought she was around 5 feet 9 or 5 feet 10, but that could be because she is photographed with heels.
said on 8/Jul/19
I consistently see Julia looking around the 5"6 mark. She can look taller when in the high heels but most of the time when she's with tall women, she looks much shorter. There are a few times on Ellen where she is the same height as Ellen D. who I think is around the 168cm height. There is a video of her barefoot on Ellen DeGeneres (surprising the pizza guy) and at the very end around the 3 minute and 30 seconds, you can see Ellen is a tad taller - about the same amount as the slight heel Ellen has. Rob mentions Julia says she wishes she was 6 feet and you can tell because when she was younger she fibbed about her height often. She even stands on her tippy toes a few times during the video Im trying to add here. :-)

5'7.75" for this woman.
Nik said on 5/Jun/19
An average adult in the UK is about 5'6.25" - 5'6.5"!
Nik said on 4/Jun/19
I like it that she once said "I'm too tall to be a girl. I'm between a chick and a broad."!
She is NOT too tall to be a girl, no height is too tall or too small!! Also 5'9" is NOT average!
CDS said on 18/Apr/19
I believe early in her career, she was being listed at 5'10"! I always wondered if it had something to do with making her, pretty woman, co star,Richard here, seem taller? Ftr, my guess would be 5'7.5"
Hacker said on 23/Feb/19
Julia Roberts was half an inch shorter than 5'6 Kate Hudson at the Instyle Awards in 2015. Kate Hudson in platform heels was the same height as Angelina Jolie (5'6.5) in average heels at the Kung Fu Panda 3 premiere. Julia Roberts could be 5'5.75 (shorter than Angelina Jolie).
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Dec/18
@Sacred Could be in a running sneakers. Barefoot no way higher than 5'8.
Just said on 18/Nov/18
Julia is definitely 5’7”5 at most. She’s more than an inch shorter than both Carrie Anne Moss and Julianne Nicholson.
In “Pretty Woman” she said her legs “are 44” from hip to toe”. I’m just 5’7 and thought I’ve short legs, but my legs are also 44” from hip to toe...
Yang (5ft 8 Chinese men) said on 9/Nov/18
Solid 5ft 8 just like my height.....
Sacred said on 29/Aug/18
I think she is 175 cm
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Jul/18
44" obviously isn't the length of her inseam.
said on 24/Jul/18
Yeah did sound a bit long considering 7ft 7in paul sturgess said in a documentary that he has 44 inches legs I doubt a 5ft 8 woman would
Some refer to the measurement on the outside hip rather than the inseam.
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Jul/18
That checks with what I saw written up for Julia the other day.
So 5ft8 it'll be!
said on 21/Jul/18
In pretty woman she describes her legs as 44 inches. Do you think they'd have been anywhere near that long?
That is very long on outside leg. I'd say unlikely.

c'mon rob,how can you put julia roberts at 172.7 when there are plenty of pics of her with mel gibson and she is shorter than him even in high HEELS.she is no more than 5'6

5'8 or 173 cm and that's it for 100%
MAD SAM said on 25/May/18
She has a good height, 172-173 cm range definitely
said on 11/May/18
Rob,is it possible that Julia and Cameron are both the same height as Jennifer Lawrence?
I think both have chance of slightly under five eight
said on 3/May/18
@ Rob could it be possible she weighed 120 back then? I was just watching the film she looks very lean. Also how much do you think she weighs now 140- 150 ?
At her skinniest it's not exactly improbable, some actresses around 5ft 8 will weigh in 120-125 range and have quite low body fat.
berta said on 2/Mar/18
i dont think she is a mm taller than this listing. with a big chanse of 172

I would love to have one girls night out with Julia Roberts. She is very beautiful. It would be a dream just to meet her. Love all of her movies. My husband would be thrilled to meet her also.😄
said on 13/Jan/18
Her brother looks so much taller.
Eric is in bigger boots, mid-stride (high point) and on the (likely) higher side of the pavement. I would say Eric probably like that photo 😁
said on 23/Dec/17
Rob can you please please estimate how much she weighed in the film Pretty Woman? She’s around my height and had a fabulous body in that picture
Editor Rob: Julia could have weighed 130 pounds back then, maybe even a touch under it.
Mister lennon said on 13/Dec/17
I think that she is more about 5'7. A weak one.
I also think that angelina jolie could be a little taller than her.
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Dec/17
It was the film 'Sleeping with the Enemy' which showed me that Julia can look absolutely tiny! I mean, seriously everybody, I thought in 'Pretty Woman' that she was 5ft11!
Yet here I have before me the opening scenes of the first film mentioned, where in the opening scene, Julia goes to a party with her tall husband and looks quite average-heighted for a woman, and then, back at the beach house with her brutal, controlling monster of a husband, who towers over her, she could pass for a tiny-boned 5ft5 woman, completely helpless next to the beastly monster!
I'm going to have to find out who plays her husband, for he must be very tall indeed, but first I am going to lower my original guess for Julia from my February comment, which was 5ft8. This time I am going for 5ft7.5. Having just read my last comment, which was prompted by an article I read in 'The Enquirer', I would like to end this comment nearly ten months later by adding that I sincerely hope Julia is in a much happier place now.
Dennis M said on 6/Dec/17
Sat next to her on the plane and walked down the gate to the terminal. We both wore flat shoes and i towered over her and Im 6 ft even

Barefoot back-to-back, Angelina Jolie will be taller.

You could be right!

Could be 5-7.5
Anonymous said on 2/Nov/17
Are you sure about 5'8" for Julia. She got towered by 6'0" nick nolte in I love trouble 1994. Nolte looked to have more than 4 inches on her. Either nolte was in his peak close or was 6'1" or julia roberts is shorter than 5'8" because in that movie no way that nolte is Only 4 inches taller. She looks tiny next to him
brazilianman said on 14/Oct/17
In the movie Flatliners, Julia Roberts(5'8") seems to be about 4 inches shorter than Kevin Bacon (5'10"). There is something wrong in that...
said on 10/Oct/17
Rob do you think Julia is under 5 ft 8? If you do, why not change it?
Editor Rob: by the time I decide, she'll probably have lost another 1/4 inch and I'll be thinking 'she might be 5ft 7.5 at most'...I do think at her age she might have lost a little fraction and be sub 5ft 8, but a full half inch? I'm not sure.
Kathy said on 5/Oct/17
I stood right next to her in Vegas and she is short. I'm 5'4" and she was shorter than me. No joke.
MarzBarz said on 21/Aug/17
My husband, who is 5'8"(well,was 5'8",he's lost a little since then), met her at a meet and greet they did for the troops in Turkey after the premiere of Ocean's 11. It took him a minute to find her when she came in because he was looking over her head. We no longer have the picture of my husband standing with her, but she was significantly shorter. He was not wearing his boots, so he couldn't have more than ¾“added for shoes. Saying she is 5'7" is being very generous.
oliver said on 9/Aug/17
As for an American woman, 5ft 8 is tall but not too tall. At 5ft 10 and above, a woman is considered 'very tall'.
Johnson said on 14/Jul/17
She is 5'8.5. As tall as Marcelo the footballer, 1.74
said on 30/Jun/17
Rob,is 5ft 7.5 possible for both Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz?
Editor Rob: both those figures could be argued, certainly 172cm range is believable.
Nik said on 25/Jun/17
I think she is at least 5'7" and at most 5'7.5"!
RisingForce said on 24/Jun/17
The fact that Kiefer isn't much taller than 5'8" himself is one thing that makes Julia at 5'8" a bit of a stretch, imo. Without looking at her that much, I think 5'7.5"-5'7.75" range is likely.
RisingForce said on 24/Jun/17
It's too bad there's no good photos of Julia and her brother. I'd bet Eric is/was noticeably taller since 5'8" seems to be a stretch for Julia, imo. More 5'7" range, I'd say about 5'7.5".
Nik said on 22/Jun/17
I wouldn't quite say she is 5'8"!
SS said on 20/Jun/17
I say 1.71-1.72
Slim 181 cm said on 9/Jun/17
173.5 cm. I wouldn't rule out 175 because she's tall and has large hips.
Becky said on 17/May/17
At the 2015 Instyle Awards, Julia Roberts posed together with Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson. Why was 5'6 Kate Hudson taller than Julia Roberts? It is clear that Julia wore heels.
PotatoMcCain said on 24/Apr/17
I appreciate that your listings are realistic and trustworthy unlike Google ones 👍
She looked exactly as tall as Marcelo from Real Madrid (174cm) so she is definitely 5ft8.
Sharon said on 7/Apr/17
Interesting comment from Justine below claiming Angelina Jolie is taller than Julia Roberts. Google 'Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong'o', Google 'Julia Roberts, Lupita Nyong'o'- both are taller than Lupita, but somehow Angelina Jolie does appear to be taller than Julia. Angelina Jolie 171cm; Julia Roberts 169cm?
Adijos said on 19/Mar/17
She is really 5'9" tall!
Keira said on 19/Mar/17
Julia Roberts always wears monster platform heels... Barefoot, I bet she struggles with 5'6.
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Feb/17
There was an article in 'the Enquirer' of this week about Julia. It confirmed that she is 5ft8, much smaller than I thought when I saw her in 'Pretty Woman'. The reason she was in there though is a mite less flattering! It was detailing a 3 stone plus weight gain caused by relationship problems. Many of us have been there and can identify with the problem. I hope she loses it soon and finds someone who makes her happy. Her family have been through enough in the past years.
LM10-196 cm(6'5'') said on 17/Jan/17
She is 5'7''.not5'8"
Justine said on 25/Dec/16
This facade of hers needs to stop- she struggles to match up against TV show hosts Oprah (5'5) and Ellen (5'6). similar height when standing next to Gwen Stefani (5'6) and Julianne Lewis (5'6). Only an inch and a half taller than Jennifer Aniston (5'4.5). Compared to Angelina Jolie (5'6.5), Julia Roberts comes up around an inch shorter than Angelina when both compared to Brad Pitt and Jack Black. 5'6 for Julia Roberts is fair.
5'2 said on 13/Dec/16
I think 5'7" is her height

Rob, 5'7.5" would be more realistic.

Rob, who do you think is taller Julia Roberts or Andie MacDowell?
I have a HUGE crush on both women at least in the 90s. Their height is the last thing I care about in looking at them haha. Andie is a freakin gorgeous woman, something insanely sensual about her! Agree that Andie can look the stronger 5'8 of the two. I'd happily volunteer to measure both in their dressing gowns ;-)
said on 13/Sep/16
Rob, who do you think is taller Julia Roberts or Andie MacDowell?
I've watched both Four Weddings and Notting Hill and it's hard to figure out which one looked taller beside Hugh...
Editor Rob: I'd have put them both within similar range, but generally in the past I would have thought Andie could give the more solid 5ft 8 impression.

Emma said on 28/Apr/16
I saw her on Ellen and she looks to be about the same height. Also next to Catherine Zeta Jones, they look the same height too along with Cameron Diaz and Angelina Jolie. I think you should either downgrate Cameron and Julia or upgrate Jolie and Zeta Jones. They can't have more than 1cm difference.
James B said on 5/Mar/16
Slightly surprised she's this tall
jtm said on 2/Dec/15
i think she's more like 5'6. she was definitely shorter than annabeth gish in mystic pizza .
pierric said on 30/Nov/15
It's true she looks around 178-179 cms in Pretty Woman with his boots. A sort of boots which give an advantage of about 7-8 cms. When she wears average heels she looks around 177 (next to Rigard Gere). Meaby Julia Roberts is 171 cms.
bernie said on 25/Aug/15
Look at the "Pretty Women Poster"...Julia in 4 inch heels next to 5'10" (in shoes 5'11") R. Gere and still she is not taller, although R. Gere is not standing straight.. i mean that says it all..how can she be 5'8" barefoot..She's more in the 169-170cm max. range...
NBAer said on 1/Jun/15
Her proportions scream 170cm and nothing more.I know plenty of 168+ girls who still lie about their height by 1-2 inches,it's not only us men who lie about height...The most laughable case was when a gal i know was discussing how she tried to lose weight(she was right behind me)to feel ideal.I thought it was ridiculous because she already was thin and asked how tall she was-she responded 168cm,when she was literally 155 MAX!I mean she didn't even have long legs or the tall slender look most 5'6 women give...
mannia said on 30/May/15
Julia Roberts 5'8 and Julianne Lewis 5'6... Strange.
Meredith said on 1/Apr/15
I'd say she's somewhere between 5'7" and 5'8". I'd always assumed she was very tall, but I passed her on the street one day (three years ago, to be fair) and she was actually much smaller than I expected -- and quite slim, with an almost slight built. If she want's to say 5'8", I'll give it to her...but I'd be willing to bet 5'7.5" is closer to the mark.
Ryan said on 18/Mar/15
5'8" is 173 for roberts. Pretty woman.
CDS said on 10/Mar/15
FTR, early in her career, around "Pretty Woman", she was being listed all over articles as 5'10". I wonder if may have had something to do with her looking taller than co-star Richard Gere in that film-?? TBH, I might go as low as 5'7.5" barefoot for her.
jacky said on 19/Feb/15
She is a solid 5'8.She was at least an inch taller barefoot than 5'6 Ellen who was wearing runners bringing her to 5'7.
Laura said on 11/Nov/14
I was standing next to Julia about a year ago and we are the same height, 5'8". We were both wearing flats.

I think Julia is absolutely shorter than 5'8 but certainly not shorter than 5'7.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Oct/14
5 ft 6 LOL. Oh c'mon people...
Realist said on 8/Sep/14
Don't know about Ellen, her brother does destroy the strong 5'8 claim. Maybe 5'7.5 is a good call, but nothing under 5'7 for sure.
177cmGuy said on 6/Sep/14
I think she's 172cm and at times she could look a flat 5'7 or 170cm but I highly doubt she would be anything under that.
spartphone said on 4/Sep/14
I' ve always thought julia is 5'9 , but to my surprise she is shorter than that. 169 - 170 cm . There is another video of her with Ellen, and even in heels she isnt taller than ellen.
michel said on 31/Aug/14
5'8 true and out of bed 174.
Emmy said on 11/Aug/14
The people who are saying she is 5'6 are ridiculous- yes she looked smaller than Ellen but Ellen's shoes aren't clear in that interview and she could well have been wearing 2 inch concealed platforms- I am 5'7 and can look 5'9 in certain footwear. Next to Emma Roberts Julia looks far more than 4 or 5 inches taller- she looks about 6 or 7 inches taller. 5'6 is a ridiculous claim.
Serendipity said on 29/Jul/14
Basing guesses about her height on Keifer Sutherland being 5'8" or 5'8.5" is a mistake since Keifer's height is in question. Freddie Prinze Jr. was quoted all over media today that Keifer is 5'4" - some of that is spite I'm sure but apparently Keifer is in the 5'6" to 5'7" range. Julia was a few inches taller than Kiefer in one photo where she was wearing heels. And that was full figure (head to toe for both of them).
the shredder said on 1/Jul/14
Ellen and her brother destory her claims , she is 5'7 ish , she was also no taller than Robin williams in hook.

or his brother Eric is flying in this pic, or Julia is much more shorter than 5 and 8

Eric Roberts 5ft9 makes Julia max. 5ft7. Actually she might be 5ft6.

5'8 seems right, Ewan Mcgregor has about 1.5 on her.
Emily said on 22/Dec/13
There are a lot of girls claiming and wanting to be taller. I'm not one of them (i feel awkward at almost 6ft) but my mom for instance envies my height (she's around 5'5), and a lot of other girls too. It's not a man thing.
az said on 13/Dec/13
i stood next to her in taos new mexico at a pizza place and she was a bit shorter than i am. i am just between 5'7 and 5'8. i thought 5'7 or 5'6.5
said on 21/Nov/13
I have a hard time believing she is a full 5'8". If so we can assume, with heels, she'd be over 5'11", close to 6'0". That means she'd be taller than Ewan McGregor, Dermot Mulrooney, Billy Crudup even a 5'10" George Clooney would be about a bit shorter than her (unless he's lifting).
Here is a picture of Roberts (in heels) with Paul Rudd - who I met in New York and is not more than 5'9":
I think she's 5'6.5" or 5'7", I can't see more than that.
said on 4/Jul/13
Rob have you stood next to Julia? Do you think you could be a fraction taller?
[Editor Rob: probably very close]
Pedro said on 18/Jun/13
@J.Lee I think it has to do with this tendency of rounding things up. Or maybe a lot of them mean they height in shoes, instead of barefeet.
Besides, for some women 5'10" is still an attractive height. A lot of supermodels, like Adriana Lima or Tyra Banks, have this height. So I imagine that being statuesque like a model is appealing for some women.
I think that being tall for women only becomes problematic if it means being taller than their husband or boyfriend. But if that is not the case, I think that most of them are fine with it.
said on 15/Jun/13
Something doesn't add up. If she is listed at 5'8" and her brother at 5'9 1/2. Here is pic of them together in which Eric is clearly a few inches taller than she (especially if she is in high heels):
Also, there is mug shot with Eric, that seems to be close to accurate with him be 5'9 1/2:
[Editor Rob: eric has been known to wear big footwear]
J.Lee said on 13/Jun/13
Good points Pedro, all I'm saying is this. I have known a lot of girls about 5'8.5 or 5'9 that insists they are 5' 10. Just like how Mariah Carey insists she is 5' 9. Julia Roberts and Diaz are listed as 5'9. But girls who are 5' 9 1/2 tend to say they are 5' 10. You would think they wouldn't round it up since they are tall enough. At 5' 9.5, you could still say 5' 9. Why do they want to say 5' 10?
Pedro said on 13/Jun/13
@J.Lee Mandy Moore also once said that she is "almost 5'10", which can be interpreted as a quarter inch under 5'10". I think the problem her has much more to do with the imperial measurement system. Saying 5'9 3/4" just sounds awful, so many people just prefer to round it up to 5'10". I am sure that if people would use the metrical system everywhere, we could hear much more exact height claims from celebrities. In Mandy Moore's case 177 cm.
As for Brooke Shields, I think that 6ft was maybe her peek height when she was in her late teens and twenties. Brooke is now 48 years old, so it is possible that she lost a little height since then.
J.Lee said on 11/Jun/13
Pedro, 5'7''-5'9'' may be considered perfect height but some girls in that height range boost up to 5'10.'' For instance Mandy Moore is just a quarter inch under, but insists 5'10'', and you'd think she'd downgrade since she's taller than her husband. Brooke Shields according to this site is 5'11'' but she always insists she's 6 feet tall
Pedro said on 7/Jun/13
@J.Lee I think that most women don't mind to be tall. They just don't want to be taller than men. That's why 5'7"-5'9" can be described as the perfect height range for women. With one of those heigts they are considered tall, but they are still shorter than the average man.
Besides, most of those tall women then get together with six-footers. Which makes it possible for them to wear the high heels they want, without towering over their partner on a public appearence.
said on 6/Jun/13
Rob why does a girl taller than average still boost up their own height? Don't girls want to be short enough since they are girls not men?
[Editor Rob: no, some women do claim taller, I see it in real life at times, women wishing and saying they are taller]
said on 4/Jun/13
Rob why is Julia and other 5 ft 8 girls like Cameron Diaz listed at 5 ft 9? Is 5 ft 9 a more attractive height for a girl than 5 ft 8?
[Editor Rob: julia has never really looked 5ft 9 to me, and she's been quoted saying 5ft 8 and 9, I think some actresses like to up their height just like men do.]
Nervous said on 5/Mar/13
Wow! On January 20th , Panama has a clip of Julia next to Ellen D. and Ellen has next to no heel advantage in those shoes. Ellen looks an inch taller even though she is shrugging a bit. Unless Ellen has some strange kinda lift thingy happening, Julia is 5"6 ~ and that's if Ellen is 5"7. Women lie about their heights too. I have stood next to women in shops selling strictly stockings and garments for legs/feet and heard women telling sales associates their heights to get a proper fit, and couldn't believe how often their heights were off by more than 2 inches. Some don't know and some lie. I think that video clip speaks volumes.
la chica said on 17/Feb/13
I was next to her on an elevator recently. She was wearing very low heel boots; she is definitely between 5'8 and 5'9. Anyone who says differently has never been anywhere near her. I am 5'7 and she was close to 2 inches taller than me.

If this was her true height, she would have dwarfed Richard Gere in heels but she didnt.

At 0:52 Julia hugs Ellen. Now although Ellen is wearing shoes and Julia is barefoot, you can see that Ellen is still taller. 5'6 or a very weak 5'7 for Julia.

Rob, something is up here. Footwear advantage or not Ewan Mgregor in no way looks as low as only 1.5 inches taller. if she's 5'8" he looks near 5 ft 11.

My dad met her at an alligator farm in Florida (very sweet person). Curiously, he said she was more petite than he expected and said we were about the same height, 5' 3"...my dad does forget that I wear heels a lot of the time though. He said she was adorable, classy, and a sweetheart...

How is she 5 foot 8 if cameron diaz is 5 foot 8. I heard cameron is taller. No way she is 5 foot 9 if she is shorter than diaz in my best friend's wedding. I always thought she was 5 foot 9 but now i would say 5 foot 7.

spoke briefly with her in the village one day as we both waited to cross the street. She had on a small heel and looked 5'8" - 5"9"

She's 5'8 in sneakers.
Isabella said on 21/Aug/11
If she was 5'5", she would not claim 5'8". That is just not believable. There is a huge difference between 5'5" (average) and 5'8" (tall). What's with the huge flucuations?
wow said on 5/Aug/11
on this site all the females celebrities that are over 5'7 seem to just have tons of comments of people saying they are like 5'5 -_- like not every single celebrity OR WOMEN for that matter is between 5'2-5'5. there are many ways to make people appear taller or shorter in movies & on the red carpet, but if someone says they are 5'9 or inbetween that then clearly that is their height yes some people may just round up a bit if they are like 5'8 1/2 to 5'9 but its not really much of a difference but im sure if she was like 5'6! she wouldnt be claiming 5'9 because clearly people would tell her shes not that tall my goodness

really? she needs shelley michelle (which 5.85 feet) to body double her for pretty woman poster because she is to short to stand next to rechard geere
it's not make sence that she is taller than shelley, some sources told that she is 5'1
mcfan said on 29/Apr/11
Julia Roberts is a chameleon of heights. She wears 3-3.5-inch heels around the red carpet making her look 5'10. In regular shoes, she looks only 5'7 - 5'7.25... no more. I saw a documentary of her once in sneakers, she definitely looks only in the 5'7 range. Maybe you should re-evaluate Julia. Her 5'8 might be only an illusion. She looks Helen Hunt's height to me.
J said on 5/Apr/11
She's 5'5 5'6 on a good day ? She was about the same height as an ex when she was standing next to me
person said on 5/Mar/11
she might be 5/7 or 5'8 or maybe inbetween
i have been measured at 5'7 and 3/4 and close to that so maybe she writes down 5'8 and she weighs between 120-145 in all her films and lately

It is easier for women to add on inches to their height in comparison to men due to high heels, and they sure are making bigger and bigger heels these days. I know a girl who claims to be 5'6, and she is 3-4 inches shorter than me, and i'm 5'7.

I am 6'2, she stood right next to me on Park Ave. South in NYC.
She is no more than 5'4.
Because of her short stance I had to tripple check it was her. Indeed it was. As she walked away other would turn around observing her as well.
demon said on 18/Feb/09
I sat next to her on a plane from LAX to SFO for a movie she was shooting and walked down the exit ramps next to her and she is not 5'8" Maybe 5'6" or even 5'5". I am 5'11" no shoes and was clearly much taller than her (she was wearing flats). She seemed to be as tall as my wife 5'6"
Doug said on 10/Feb/09
Perhaps she only looks around 5'8" now on screen but c'mon obviously taller than 5'6" or 5'7", man she was only an inch shorter than Denzel Washington in normal heels.
Doug said on 10/Feb/09
Funny but she has always looked around 5'9"-5'10" on screen to me at least which in normal heels undoubtedly is. Obviously legit tall woman. Some people wrongly think she is near six foot. 5'8" barefoot means in 2 inch heels she could pull off 5'10". Yes I think thats about right, I wouldn't rule out 5'9" barefoot either actually. I get the impression that she is not the sort who wants to be taller "I'm too tall to be a girl" and is likely to downplay her height if anything or at least give a completely accurate barefoot measurement. I'd give her 5'8.5" (174cm) barefoot. Taller than 5'7" undoubtedly but clearly not 5'10" barefoot as she is shorter than Daryl Hannah.
richinkle said on 28/Jan/09
I think she's 5'-7", but because she's skinny, she looks taller. Because of rampant height-inflation, I think that, for a woman, 5'-7"is taller than most people realize.
In Steel Magnolias, Roberts looks much taller than 5'-2" Sally Fields, but much shorter than 5'-10" Daryl Hannah, and not much different than Shirley Maclaine, who is probably 5'-6" or so by this time in her life.
anonymous said on 28/Jan/09
In conspiracy theory she is shoter than 5 foot 8 mel gibso by an inch and a half. In some movies she looks 5 foot 9. In conspiray theory she looks 5 foot 7. 5 foot 9.
mitchell said on 9/Jan/09
I realize there are tall people, and they are fortunate that at this time in history, the fad is to be tall. My experience with women especially who like to project the image of tallness goes like this. - Several years ago, a distant relative by marriage who may be 5'7" and naturally somewhat skinny and diets religiously was at an event which I (5'4") attended wearing flat sandals spoke to me and quickly asserted that she was 5'8" tall. The thing was that she was wearing 5" stillettos. I thought to myself "Yeah. . and I'm five-nine in 5" high heels myself." - Whenever I run into boys who were in my class in school, I'm taller than most of them. Tall women who like to gloat over their height and put down shorter women may well have to deal with osteoporosis in later years. - We are all in the human condition together and all any of us have is what God gave us, which may or may not be in "vogue" at any given time. When I was very young, I was 5'5" in high school, and five foot two, eyes of blue was the ideal which we all wished we were at that time. We all generally get fatter and shrink with time. Time is the "Great Equalizer". Enjoy what you've got and be thankful for what you are.
coolforcats said on 14/Nov/08
I really don't think she'd lie about her height, so I'm guessing she's right when she says she's 5'8 or 5'9. Most biographies claim her to be 5'9, so this "5'7" talk is out of the question. I don't think they could all be wrong. Look at her in Pretty Woman - she's tall.
janice said on 28/Oct/08
5'8 and 5'9 is both possible for her, maybe she's something between those heights, like 5'8.5 (174 cm) or so, that would explain the way she looks on most pictures and why she claimed both heights.
Simone Peque said on 14/Oct/08
In october 2008 she was in the Oprah show and Oprah looked the same height - or almost - as her. And the presenter is supposed to be 1,68. So I doubt Julia is taller than 1,73 (Sandra Bullock was also in the show also and the three of them looked exactly the same - and they had heels which looked the same height).
pairodocks said on 12/Oct/08
I am a production executive. I have worked with her for many years and I am 5'10. She is 2 inches shorter than me in bare feet. That makes her 5'8".

Well, in Pretty Woman, she's 1-2 inches shorter than Richard Gere, who is 5' 10", so I'm guessing she's about 5' 8-9". 5' 6" is just ridiculous!

The height of a wax figure is essentially not the same.
I attended a program in which an indian celebrity shahrukh khan stood next to his wax figure for promotion.
The wax model was well 3 inches taller than him.
so as i see it she is no more than 5 feet 8.
debutante said on 29/May/08
Went to Madame Tussaud's and stood next to Julia's wax figure. If these figures are exact, like they say they are, She's definitely 5'9". I'm exactly 5'8" and the figure was an inch taller than myself. I actually did the hand on the top of my head across to hers - haha

looking at pics she looks 1 to 1.25 in shorter than hanks and denzel in heels so she is 5'8 no less she is only 40 she lost nothing also if she is under 5'8 hanks and denzel might be closer to 5'11.5 nowadays since my girlfriend is 5'7.5 and in heels i look look the same as them so if she is under 5'8 they are under 6 ft rob could denzel and hanks lost lidl height like heading to 5'11.75
Valeri said on 16/Oct/07
Denzel is 1 inch taller than Roberts. hes like 6'0.5 in shoes and shes 5'11.5max with 4inch heels,so I think Denzel is closer to 5'11 than 6ft.

hanks looks barely taller than her in big heels so either she is steel 5'8 or he lost 1 cm

Dude she ain't close to 5.9, my girl friend is 5.9 she stood taller than julia. Maybe if she ever stood toe to toe with someone without her pretty woman heels we would get a more honest height estimate.
glow said on 28/Aug/07
If Franco is right about the Osteoporosis theory, I think it might be time to give her a peak height and current height listing on this page to justify the change. I believe she was 5'8"-5'9" in her prime (we're talking 10-15 years ago), but judging from the overwhelming number of eye witness accounts, she really can't be much more than 5'6", 5'7" tops now.
Franco said on 27/Aug/07
been long since last time i posted here about Julia.
she definetely shrunk for an unknown reason and im guessing Osteoporosis disease.
she mostly looks 172-173cm in the past this is true no doubt, but today she barely makes 169cm, but she does look tall thanks to her skinny body, so whoever said she looks no more than 170cm (ben?) is right, in fact she's under 170cm.
Julia roberts = 172cm wake up, 170cm during morning, 169cm average, 168cm night.
better than this we're joking.

To Ilona-her legs are 44 inches from "hip to toe"-remeasure your legs from your hip to your toe's it is probably near 44 inches too. BTW I am 5"10, my legs are 46 inches from hip to toe.

rob are you sure she is that tall she looks 1.5 in shorter than kiefer and about 3 in under gere in barefoot scene she might be 5'7.25 to 5'7.5naer clooney she looks 5'8
[Editor Rob: 172cm is possibility, but even with clooney she had normal heels, actually close to 172cm is what she looks if you give clooney 179. It is true Kiefer looks taller back in 90's with her, I remember those pics.]

Ive heard she was 5'9 when she filmed pretty woman maybe shes shrunk since then.
Julia said on 21/Apr/07
5'8" at the start of her career but more like 5'7.5" to 5'6" now, she looks taller because she's thin with long legs and has a narrow face. I'm 5'7.5" but look much taller because I'm like Julia (my legs are 45 inches).
arelya said on 11/Apr/07
FYI 173 cm is 5'67'' if converted correctly. So if she is 173 then she is 5'67'' and not 5'8''

1.68cm end of the story. (today)
1.73cm in the past.
laura said on 28/Mar/07
I think she is 5Ft 9" tall. I gather this from seeing her alongside different actors and how her height changs depending on heels. As i am myself 5ft 9, i know how i can appear average height when in flats to VERY tall for a woman at 6ft. As for the leg comment, it could be true but that is Very long. Mine are 39-40 inches long....
Brad said on 15/Mar/07
5' 8". I've been told she did most of her close shots in the Oceans films in bare feet to make the cast look taller.

Over a year ago I was on a flight with Julia's husband, Danny Moder, from Washington to Dallas and he is about 5'5" if that; I am 5'11" and when I stood behind him getting on the plane (he flew coach)he was to my chin. In photos she and her husband are the same height.

She's 5'8...maybe 5'9 in sneakers but certainly no taller than this.

No way. I worked with her for a couple of weeks and she's more like 5'5''. Her long legs and slender frame make her look taller.

Everyone is forgetting about what type of shoe each person is wearing, which can be misleading, especially the Oprah and Julia pics. No way Oprah is close to being the same as Julia. I bet Oprah is wear mega high heels and Julia was wearing flats. I'll go with 5'8"
Glenn said on 22/Nov/06
Yeah,6 months ago she appeared 5-6 to me.15 years ago,5-9.weird.
Maria said on 21/Nov/06
Julia used to live in my neighborhood and I saw aher on the street several times. I can't say her exact height of course, but she did not look tall to me, just average, and in flat shoes. A friend of mine worked with her and commented on how much shorter she was in person and how she looks tall on the screen. I'd agree with comments toward the bottom of this page, 5'6.
Brad said on 16/Nov/06
She's all over the place with heels, boots, flip-flops, etc.. Hard to judge.
ice said on 16/Nov/06
She looks 5'9.5" next to the 5'11 Brad Pitt. But, look at her shoes. she's getting about 2-3 inches from those. So, I'de say she is 5'7ish.
Rocky said on 30/Sep/06
Also, make sure that you don't go by the LOWEST nor the HIGHEST estimate possible - that's a key mistake in person-to-person encounters.
Last but not least, don't assume everyone who meets another person can distinguish 1 inch from 2 or 3 that easily - it's a skill that takes a while to perfect.
With that said, I'm willing to say 5'7'' - 5'10'' for Julia Roberts with 5'8''-5'9'' being the most plausible.
Rocky said on 23/Sep/06
Generally, I'd go by person in person encounters, not photos because I've learned that they can be SO deceiving, unless one person's much taller or shorter than another.

In "Ocean's" she was pushing 174-175, if wearing high heels causes slight shrinkage maybe she was slightly taller than, but still is atleast 173cm now.

5' 8". The "Ocean's Eleven" evidence is the accurate speculation. I'm sure Damon didn't want her taller.

5-6 is what I saw 5 months ago.she did look5-8,5-9, 15 years ago to me.anonymous is speaking some truth.
Rut said on 14/Jun/06
Roberts is atleast 5 ft 8 inches tall, five six is ridiculous, but I rest my case here, her posture can be off sometimes I think..
She looked close to Gere who was atleast 177 cm, I would say there isn't more than one and a half inch differrebce there.
star said on 10/Jun/06
Jessica Simpson is said to be 5'3, and some people speculate that she is shorter than that, but I think she looks tall, a lot taller than 5'3, at least 5'5 or 5'6, but I suppose her lean physique creates the illusion of being taller, as some people think I'm tall when I'm measured as only 5'2.

Yeah I've never met Julia though shes such a talented actress and I love her! But when I was watching StepMom today with Julia Roberts and Susan Surrandon who is listed at 5'5, Julia was in sneakers and easily 3 inches taller and at times would be appear four inches taller. So Im thinking this 5'8-5'9 listing cant be too off, like I said never met her but in the movie I cant help but think

Your right to a point SF,but I always studied them,not sure if its more so now.
sf said on 6/May/06
Glenn - maybe you're more height conscious now that you've been coming to this board for a while. Maybe when you saw her before, your perception was clouded by what you'be always been told, know what I mean? We're always told she's 5'8" or so, so maybe it clouds our perceptions? Maybe you've become more critical since this sight and are looking at people more closely? Just a suggestion why she might seem shorter now. Do you find yourself scrutizinizing people's heights more now then in the past? Just curious.
richinkle said on 5/May/06
On Letterman tonight, Julia, wearing 2 1/2" cowboy boots, was about 4 1/2" shorter than Letterman . Letterman is 6'-1" - 1 1/2", making Jula about 5'-7" to 5'-7 1/2"". She is looking quite beautiful these days.

Her posture good have been bad, and also sometimes we think we are as tall well sometimes the person good be maybe one and a half inch taller..

I just saw the play Three days of Rain in very good seats. She is barefoot in the second act and standing in front of Paul Rudd (not a tall guy)there is a big difference. Her legs (from knees to feet) are so skinny like two matchsticks. Also, outside the theater, I wait for her in the very first row and she was with heels. Then, she seamed tall but standing in front of me (I am 1.70) there wasnt any difference.

Has anyone seen the film Pret A Porter bka "Ready to Wear"? Julia Roberts seems a little over a foot taller than Tim Robbins. Wow, I can't believe the 5'8"- 5'10" listings have been around for so long. Watching the scenes she has in the film clearly show that she can't possibly be that tall. Unless Robbins is more 6'8"-ish.
ForensicNYC said on 7/Apr/06
Julia Roberts was barefoot in almost all the takes of the "Casino" scenes in OCEANS ELEVEN. She had to look shorter than her normal self so she won't look towering over Matt Damon, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Don Chead who had to wear character role shoes (normal 1" heels) instead of lifts. You can see her bare feet in the "Bloopers" out takes on the special features. She also might have had a foot injury as you can spot a slight "Limp" in her stride in all casino "gambling floor" scenes...She is 5'8" barefoot...
Anonymous said on 8/Mar/06
She is only about 5'6". I saw her at a SAG party a few years back. She and Cemeron Diaz are surprisingly shorter than one would ever expect.
It's very safe to say that all celebs just add 2-3 inches to their height since they appear taller on screen and wear heels to most public events. But, if you ever get the chance to scope them out yourself (try teh Ivy or Robertson Blvd. in L.A.) you will find that all are 2-3" shorter in person. That never seems to take away from their poise and beauty, though. It's a total rush to see their actual stats etc. Oh, and their usually skinny to gaunt.

I agree with Anshelm's statement.Maybe plus the foot her legs length could be 110 cm,because the foot is extra at least 10cm. But this is also true that she towers most of people in erin borokovich. she is most probably 5'8 barefoot and with the heels 5'11 or 6'
Anshelm said on 28/Jan/06
You know, in Pretty Woman she said her legs were that long "hip to toe" – so she's getting some extra there. Presuming her line was based on fact.
BTW, according to Guinness, longest female legs measure 126 cm/49¾", and belong to British 193 cm/6'4" tall Sam Stacey. Though it's a pretty new category, and I doubt any exhaustive research has been done on the subject. Of modern women, I'd bet the likes of 213 cm/7' Polish basketball player Małgorzata Dydek, or 204 cm/6'8½" Russian volleyball player Ekaterina Gamova have her beat.
MeLiSsA said on 23/Jan/06
I just saw Erin Brockovich last night. She's wearing high heels throughout the whole movie and towers over everyone. men and women. And i mean TOWERS. If you see a shorter person wear high heels they're usually still shorter than other people even in heels. Plus she looks really, really alomost awkwardly tall in the movie, probably a combination of the heels on top of being naturally tall. I would beleive that she's 5'8 or 5'9

Then why in 3 inch heels was she just at, if not shorter than, Clooney at the People's Choice Awards?? She is in no way over 5'7". There is too much proof to the contrary.

I did notice in some films she slouches close to 3 cm..
I think a good 173 cm is accurate what she is now..

To end with this leg issue, i mentioned the metod used in anthropometry.
Measuring from the inseam you are lossing leg lenght. The trocanter is the right point because it's the real tip of the femur, and what for legs concern you sould measure leg bones in it's total length not from inseam (wich saves you something) or from above (wich involves hip bones and it's obvious that those are not part of the legs)
49" (121cm in other sources) is well above my navel, i don't buy it.

As mentioned before I am 182cm tall and 125cm is the beginning of my rib. 153cm is approximately my shoulder length. 125-130 cm should be the beginning of her ribs too.(for someone with 185cm tall). Anatomically it is a must, i think. There should be some place for heart,lungs! Could someone explain me, how it is possible? Because if her legs are 125cm tall then her ribs should be at least 10-15 cm above her legs.Lets say 135-140 and then her shoulders 165-170!!

Lol Rob, i was to mention than one, cause i measued my legs in the way described the time when i knew it. The problem is that in Spain she was advertised as 180cm.
(in press) Later 185cm too in tv (if that length is true is more belivable for a 6'1"er)

The better measurement system should be from my point of view the inseam length.It is less arguable and easier to measure. I also think that the legs' length claimed by the artists or models is the end of pelvis bone.(easier to measure). I also don't believe that someone with 6'1" leghth(adriana sklenaranova) could have 49 inches legs' length. Because by me 49 inches is approximately the beginning of my rib.

Usually the women have a comparative longer length of their legs to their total height than men. What i've described is the standard medical model, the right one in terms of science. I'ts obvious that for a 173cm women that's an exageration. I've roughly 1 m (39-40in) being 5'11". Are we to belive everithing that's advertised?
[Editor Rob: 185cm ADriana Sklenaranova claims her legs as being near 49 inches!]

after your description it is impossible that someone with 5'9" height has a legs' length of 44 inches. Because the point you are mentioning is below the one i measured at least 2-3 inches. I am 6 and my legs' length to gotxo description is 40-41 inches. I is very difficult to find the exact point.

Anonimous, legs lengnth is usually measured from the feet to the trocanter a little spike on the Femur bone. The reason to do that is the tip of the Femur, the highest point on it. Ther is another branch that conects the Femur with the hips, the head of this branch may be above the trocanter, but it can take even almost 90 degrees with the femur (not in a vertical plane)

Legs' lenght could also be another topic for discussion. I don't know exactly how to measure,but i think end of the pelvis bone could be the legs' length.It is approximately at the same height as the navel.(maybe 1 inch higher than the navel)

Come on now people...female celebs just look really tall because they have small faces and they're really skinny...I was once working as a set nurse at erin brokovich and julia was 5.6 max...she has really small face and very very very slender figure which accounts to the illusion that she is tall.

In Pretty woman she mentioned that her legs are 44 inches. Actually I am 5'11"1/2 or 6. My legs are 43 or 44 inches. It couldn't be true that her legs are 44 inches, because i think that my legs are also tall compared to other people at my height. I personelly believe that she is 5'9" tall and her legs 41,max 42 inches

Please don't try and gauge her height by comparison with Richard Gere when they appeared in Pretty Woman. Invariably, Gere's height is listed as 5.10 and a half so Julia, taling into account three inch heels is regarded as about 5'8. Richard Gere would be lucky to be 5'9 and a half wearing very generous heels. His actual height is 5'8 which accords with the numeous accounts of Julia's height being about 5'5 or 5'6.

she's 5'10. you can check it out in the movie "closer" check out her legs in that movie and when she stand next to jude law whos like 6 feet. and natalie portman character in that movie said "she's so tall" to clive owen. normally girls are considered taller if they're 5'8 or above. 5'4 is the average height for girls.

I was an extra in Miss Congeniality and at a SAG party before the film release, I met Julia Roberts. She is 5'6". I am 5'8".
I have met several celebs and it wouldn't even be worth me trying to tell you how much shorter most of them are because you wouldn't believe me. Julia was a surprising one, though. My friend, who is 5'10" for real, works for William Morris as a talent manager and is not allowed to be in pictures with most of her clients because it would ruin the illusion.
