I was quite fat as a small child. I suddenly had hips and I was about 4ft 11in at 14. Then I grew in height, massively. I am 5ft 7in now.

Claimed to be 5'8" "without heels" in instagram comments under one of her photos
Editor Rob
I believe at one point she had that figure on her agency too. Her original 5ft 7 claim is more believable. Wears giant heels a fair amount of the time.
JayJay said on 27/May/22
Would give her 5’6 3/4”.
David Tang said on 22/Aug/21
I feel 169 is a great height. It sounds very nice and decently tallish.
borat1 said on 19/Aug/21
Hey rob!! Although a gorgeous woman, there are ample evidence of her being in 5'6 range rather than as high as 5'7. As pointed by other users on page, she was same height as jessica beil, was shorter than 179 colin farell in near 4.5 inch heels and was more than 2 inches shorter than same height cara develigne.

You could definitely look in 168-169 range.
Editor Rob
there's a strong case for 169, she is not afraid of wearing big heels a lot of the time.

next to adam sandler who looks about 5'9 3/4 she seemed to be slighty under 5'7 like 5'6 3/4

Gorgeous Kate is 5’6.5”... just a fraction taller than Jessica Biel, her Total Recall co-star.
Lamont Cranston said on 18/Jan/21
Absolutely gorgeous woman, but probably not 5’7”.

Look up her interview with steven Colbert on YouTube. (she teaches him a few words in Russian.)

When she walks on she is wearing insanely tall heels, yet still is noticeably shorter than 5’11” Colbert.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Jul/20
She works out a lot and also smokes I think, no wonder she's super slim LOL. Why people like her who are so health and image conscious smoke is beyond ludicrous!

πŸŽˆπŸ’πŸŽ‚πŸŽ Happy Birthday Kate! πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸ’πŸŽˆ

Wishing the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale a wonderful 47th Birthday. I've seen her pictured with many, many starlets, including Liv Tyler, and I was quite surprised to find out she is this tall. This could be due to her super slim appearance. I enjoyed her pairing with Christian Bale in the film 'Laurel Canyon', in which she played Christian's girlfriend. He towered over her 5ft6.5//7. She was super-fit in the movie, doing a lot of jogging, and I admired her figure, knowing the effort she will undoubtedly go through in real life to maintain it. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Kate gets a Birthday guess of 5ft6.75. πŸ˜πŸ‘ XXX

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Jun/20
She either lie about half inch or she measure it in early morning at 5'7. Sofia Vergara look more 5'7-ish than Kate. I still go with 5'6 1/2 for her and Biel.
Jam Cherry said on 14/May/20
She and Jessica Beil are almost same height, 169 cm Maybe + 0.5 cm to Kate
JohnMoore-162cm said on 11/May/20
@Ayy- 5ft7 is tall for a woman but she's more like 5ft6 1/2"
Ayy said on 2/May/20
Some say 5’6.5. But 5’7 flat is also very possible for her. Kate is definitely in that above-average, entry level tall range for a woman which I think begins at around 5’6.5. She also has quite big feet, she wears a size 10 for a woman. I think her proportions make her seem taller but I’m gonna go with 5’7 for her.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Apr/20
Click Here Looks like similar heels on Kate without standing straight seemingly look shorter than Biel.

Click Here Looking at top of head here both standing well next to each other, Biel got her by 1/4.

There were lots of different angle of picture to look up on Biel and Kate comparison on the google that hardly compare their height. Those two link that i posted was the best angle they stand in line next to each, to be seem they were quite close in height although Jessica Biel look taller by 1/4 instate of going to trust listing as '5'7' Kate taller than Biel. Most people argue that Biel is a little lower than what Rob listed her. I believe it too. If lets say Biel is solid 5'6 1/2 then Kate would be 5'6 1/4 but chances high they were the same height in real both 5'6 1/2. Kate Beckinsale is def not a good 5'7 or something. 5'6 1/2 is best fit for her.

@Editor Rob,

Kate claims 5'8" on Instagram, but looks nothing over 5'7".
She was replying to a comment referring her "WTF Kate is like 5'2"? On a recent picture with P Diddy in it.
Editor Rob
I believe she also had 5ft 8 in the spotlight directory, I would need to find a photo of it, but I don't believe that high a claim.

Ah! It's Kate Beckinsale's Birthday today and she turns a super-sexy 46!

I saw her the other night in 'Vacancy', and compared to Luke Wilson's 5ft11.25, I thought she looked 5ft6.75 - 4 and-a-half inches shorter than him.

I wish her a very happy day with her family and friends.

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Jul/19
She may not be taller than Jessica Biel who was more like a flat 169cm.
PCrowd said on 5/Jul/19
She's a funny one. At times looks as short as 5'5 and other times she looks 5'8.... i think she's a weak 5'7. Definitely not short but has proportions that make her seem shorter. In the big heels she wears a lot, she clears the weak 6'0 range which make her look very tall
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Jun/19
Look to me shes a weak 5'7 women with some shorter legs and arms proportion.
berta said on 5/Apr/19
for some reason i thought she was mutch shorter, maybe 166-167. But she could be this height. I think i would have listed her at 169 if it was up to me.
Rybio Reus said on 25/Feb/19
Looks like a convincing 5'7 to me because I have a female relative with her height. Definitely not short for a woman because they can wear heels. To date a 5'7 woman, a man has to be in the 180cm range to look decent with her. So not really easy in my book. She looks great btw.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Feb/19
Short looking 5'7 actress.

He's walking a bit behind her and she's also gotta be close to 5'11 or 6' in those shoes.

I see Kate Beckinsale as anywhere between 5'6.75" and 5'7"! I think the average vote is too low.
Milinaka said on 16/Dec/17
Yes indeed the 5’7 listing seems indeed about half an inch to an inch too too high. I am going for 5’6.5 for Kate.
Tate said on 20/Nov/17
Kate is consistently at least 2" shorter (discounting the puffy hair) than Cara Delevingne who self-professed to be 5'7" despite her inflated modeling height stat. Kate is around 5'5".

5.5" for sure. People are too generous here and we all know Hollywood add 2" for all celebs.
Bob said on 6/Sep/17
She has short legs for her height, which may make her look a bit shorter than she really is. But 5'7" sounds pretty solid for her.
Richard said on 12/Aug/17
But Rob if she is 5'6" with 6.25" heels she reaches 6'0.5". She is very close to Farrell so 5'11"-5'11.5", she really can't be over 5'5.5".
Editor Rob
the heels might be called 6 inches, but they won't give that much, more like 4-5 range, 5 at most if you have a 2-inch platform.
Richard said on 11/Aug/17
Hi Rob, Kate Beckinsale is probably around 5'4"-5'5.5" (163-166 cm).
If Colin Farrell is 5'10", but I'll see because he can be in the 5'9.25"-5'10" (176-178 cm) range, with shoes he is a 5'11" and if he wears lifts he reach the 5'11.5" (182 cm) mark, but I doubt he is so tall or taller in this photos.

she does wear quite big heels at times, but I don't think she would be under 5ft 6.
S.J.H said on 12/Jul/17

True. But look at her torso it doesn't look long but her head a little long if shes only 5'5 i say. I take more look at her i think she is somewhere 5'6 in the morning and 5'5.5 would be just a guess for lowest. 5'6.5 out of bed
Jay said on 10/Jun/17
SHJ, the length of someone's limbs shouldn't matter when it comes to height. A person can be tall with a long torso and short legs, or short with long legs. I'm going with 5'6.5 for Kate.
Lanaka said on 16/Apr/17
I'd even say she might be even as low her true height as 5'5.75! But not over 5'6.5! Even That looks too high for Kate. 5'5.75-5'6 seems right!

Oops! Typ error below I meant 5'6-5'6.5 for Kate.

@ Arch Stanton - Hello again! Are films misleading or what? I've seen Kate out jogging in the film 'Laurel Canyon', not smoking!
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/16
Kate's heavily into fitness too I think. Uma Thurman is another. I suppose they think if you work out wnough and eat well you can excuse yourself for smoking. Most people who get into fitness quit smoking as they can feel the damage when they run hard in terms of oxygen/lungs.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/16
Rob can you add Serendipity?169 might be nearer..

Sandy Cowell said on 13/Oct/16
Kate must work really hard to keep such a lovely, trim figure!

It's called smoking. Kate smokes like a chimney sadly. She does keep fit though but there's no point is there is you smoke a lot?

Kate must work really hard to keep such a lovely, trim figure! I have read that she is 5ft6, 5ft7 and even 5ft5, which I didn't believe! My favourite film role of hers was the part she played in a film called 'Haunted.' The film has an incredible shock ending and it has to be said that she is hauntingly beautiful in it!

168 cm for her
5'5 gal said on 24/Nov/15
She looks a full 3 inches shorter than Liv Tyler, so if Liv is 5'9.5, Kate is 5'6.5. Didn't see pics of their shoes, but Liv almost never wears platforms while Kate almost always does. If you factor in platform advantage, then Kate may be exactly 5'6 and no more. She does love puffing her hair on top too, is that for added height illusion? It makes her head look really big when she does that though. She looks better with big loose curls and unpuffed top of hair.

Sal said on 13/Oct/14
I was actually surprised. She looks much smaller in all her movies. I thought she was 160-165 tops.
Laura said on 31/Jul/14
I have never met her, though I will say this: When I looked up her height I was surprised because to me she actually doesn't look 5"7, I always thought about 5"5. I think its pretty obvious that Lee Wiseman isn't over 5"9 when you see him next to a 6"1 Chris Klein. That does make Kate not over 5"5 since she's the same height as her husband in 5" heels, AND her stylist would need to have her correct measurements and height to do her job properly. I could be wrong but she just doesn't look 5"7 to me.

"Kate next to her husband at Whiteout (2009) premiere. Click Here

Kate 6' tall in platforms? - I think not. Even with her tallest platforms, she's not taller than her husband Len Wiseman, who is not 6' tall. He's about the same height as 5'10" max Colin Farrell in all photos you can easily search for. "

Len Wiseman is 5'11" tall, which is about average. You can't judge those heights when Kate is standing in pumps that are at least 5-6" tall. Not to mention they're not even standing up straight.

Kate is every bit of 5'7" tall, because I took a picture with her once, and I'm 6'3".

@Bluema, you are really creepy, you have comments dating over 2 years and some less than a month. You are probably a 4 foot girl, that is jealous of Kate Beckinsale. Well I came here in the first place to see what her height is, since I met her today in low-top Converse Chucks, she was 5'8" (consider half an inch from the shoes, the rest is all her, and she was rocking some pretty flat hairstyle adding up to 5'9"). The conclusion, in comparison to me (5'8), she is eye-to-eye height, so get it out of your system: she is not shorter than 5'7", possibly 5'6" in the evening.

Most actors (even people) lie about their heights, but her body proportions and short limbs are dead giveaways. You can choose to believe all you want, but from what I can see clearly and from her stylist Kithe Brewster's confirmation, she's 5'5".
GREENBERET37 said on 29/Dec/13
It's easily open for debate. Here's what I think: Her actual height is around five feet and 10 inches tall. (No more, no less). P.S. GET THE FACTS PEOPLE!!! P.S.S. DO THE MATH

"Completely agreed with Ms Platform Shoes. Kate is 5'5""

Kate is not 5'5". She is 5'7" standing flat flat-footed. Her husband Len Wiseman is 5'11" or 6', and when they wears heels like that she's a bit taller than he is. If she was 5'5", she wouldn't even be as tall as him, even with platform or stilettos.

theblacklab said on 17/Sep/12
bluema, I agree. She has very short proportions. For me, 5'7" is out of the question. Between 5'5" and 5'6" seems most likely.
bluema said on 30/Aug/12
Beckham is probably one of the most unreliable for comparisons though. She had even claimed 5'7" and many who have seen her say she's very tiny and can't be more than 5'2"-5'3" max, constantly on platform pumps as well. However, I agree that Kate is about 5'5" and you can see that easily with her standing next to stars tall enough (nor vain enough) to not exaggerate their heights. The average distance from the eyes to the top of the head is 5" for males, and Kate barely reaches up to the eye level of 6'2" stars in shoes. Even with 6'3" reference point minus 5", Kate isn't more than 5'8" in 4" heels in the absence of platforms. 5'5".

tom said on 26/Aug/12
more 5-6' imo.
bluema said on 22/Aug/12
We're not talking about 6" heels here with no front lift. If you look closely at Kate's pumps, you can see the start of toe peeking at the top of the shoe with the hidden inner platform of several inches in the front. Thus her feet are not significantly angled in result, which is why she's getting the most of the rear heel height. Even if she loses about 1/2 to an inch at the most, that still puts Kate at 5'5" + 5" = 5'10", just as she looks next to Colin Farrell on the photo (even with her puffy hair). Stop and give up the delusion.
bluema said on 22/Aug/12
You must have a horrible posture with heels little sue. Why is it that my platform heels give me the full lift while yours don't? Give me a break.
little sue said on 22/Aug/12
6 inch heels do not give 6 inches in height, its only the back of the foot which is raised not the whole level, I have just measured myself with and without shoes, without I was 4ft 10 3/4 with 5 inch heels with an inch platform I was 5ft 1 3/4 so the 5 inches gave me 3 inches of actual height
bluema said on 21/Aug/12
No matter how hard Kate tries to reach a higher height in her platform heels, there's just no way she can disguise the short limbs even though she's very skinny. That's besides the point of the following reveal - "The gorgeous petite celebrity 5'5β€³ Kate Beckinsale (height confirmed by Kithe Brewster) hit the red carpet..." Click Here
bluema said on 21/Aug/12
Please ~ that's like saying 4 inches high heels add only 2 inches of height.
When you're standing straight up and depending on the design of the heels + platform, 6 inch heels do add 6 inches of height especially when posing. Look again - that's way more than 4" in the picture and it still doesn't change the fact that Kate only looks to be about 5'10" in the picture next to Colin in his shoes. Click Here

If 5'7" + 6", then Kate should be 6'1" towering over Colin who recently told Leno that he's 5'10". Kate is about an inch shorter than Farrell even with her puffy beehive hairdo and platform heels.
Time for a downgrade?

bluema said on 14/Aug/12
Can be explained - Jessica Biel is wearing a pair of Brian Atwood Starlet pink pumps with no front platforms, and Kate is wearing Christian Louboutin Daf Suede Boots with 2.5 platform with 6" heels. Kate is posing to enhance the height leaning forward while Jessica is slouching sideways. Anyone who has worn platform knows that it give much more height boost than flat heels, both in walking and posing.
ssportess said on 30/Jul/12
5'7 exactly
J.Lee said on 25/Jul/12
Rob. This is referring to the post below. I really would like to tackle this mystery. Collin is 5 ft 10. Assuming he is wearing shoes, that makes him about 5 ft 11. So if she is 4 inches taller in her footwear that will put them the same height. Yet, she is somehow aparrantly taller than he is. How is that? Also if her heels put her 4 inches taller, how hight do you think her heels are including the platforms?
Editor Rob
I looked at a bunch of pics and they look very close to me, so I can buy both heights being reasonable, maybe not exact but ptetty close without taking quarters
J.Lee said on 25/Jul/12
wow rob. look at kate and jessica. Click Here if they are the same height how come kate is so much taller than jessica, even though jessica is also wearing heels? How can this be explained?
J.Lee said on 24/Jul/12
Hey Rob, you got kate beckinsale listed at 5 ft 7 and Colin ferrell listed at 5 ft 10. However in various photos such as Click Here kate beckinsale is taller than him. Assuming he is wearing shoes, she must be wearing heck of a heel to be taller than him. If so how high would you assume them to be or would you think she is taller than 5 ft 7?

I think she's a 5ft 7 like she claims, I'm sure she's got a platform on the footwear and could be getting a solid real 4-inches of height out of them.
Koso said on 9/Jun/12
No way she's that tall. She wears at least 4 inch heels in things like Underworld and Van helsing and still only comes up to Hugh Jackman's neck area. He's supposed to be around 6'2.

5 foot 7. Weirder things have happened. I grew 12inches since 14. She only grew about 7 inches. I believe it.

Actually she is 5?8 she was on Oprah(5?7) show & she is taller than her
Sam said on 18/Nov/11
She looks rather shorter than 5'8" Sam Rockwell in Snow Angels but the difference is accounted for by the fact that in their one side-by-side comparison shot, she is barefoot and he is wearing boots.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but facts indicates that Kate is a legit 5'7" doll. Next to 5'5" JeLo and 5'6" Marc Anthony she definitely looks a full 5'7": Click Here Click Here

Next to 5'10" (5'11" in shoes) Cuba Gooding she looks over 6' in high heels: Click Here

Next to 6'2" (6'3" in shoes) Benicio Del Toro she looks only a few inches shorter: Click Here

If she was only 5'5" or 5'6" none of the above photos will be possible. The fact of the matter is that we are looking a a dreamed and prodigious creature who delights us with her fascinating beauty and captivating enchantment: Click Here I am completely defenseless!

She's about 5'5" or 5'6" MAX. I can't see her being 5'7" at all. She could be giving her height in heels since she's always wearing them....even to the beach!
The Horse of FUNK said on 2/May/11
The problem with Kate and why she can throw people off is because the woman is perpetually in heels. Just look at that beach photo. Yep, in heels! lol.

why do people keep citing proportion? are you twelve, cause otherwise there is really no excuse for being so naive. I have known people who are six inches taller than me with the same leg length. Open your eyes and look around you. I was sure I had heard 5'6 for her, but can't remember where.

She looks much smaller to me on screen. But still, I think about 5'6 is her height and nothing more.
claudia said on 30/Nov/10
mmmmm shes a tricky one to gauge...... in pearl harbour she looks quite petite although she is acting next to two male actors exceeding 6ft, standing next to len wiseman she looks nearly as tall as him and he is reportedly 6ft!!! mmm confused... she must wear very big heels to look tall and obviously in pearl harbour she wore very flat shoes,, i think she is one of the most beautiful actresses ever though, no-matter what height she is :)
Heightcritique said on 29/Oct/10
Recent photos of Kate and 6' Len Wiseman show a 3" difference between the two which means that this primo doll is above the 5'7" mark: Click Here which also explains why she is so close in height to 5'8" Jennifer Gardner.
Heightcritique said on 28/Oct/10
In the show 'Alias' Jen looks "amazon" tall with low 1.5" heels: Click Here and in most websites she is listed at 5'9": Click Here in this website she is listed at 5'8" so in all fairness I think she is between these two listed heights.

Kate looks similar in height Click Here but she may be wearing higher heels than Jen but her frame clearly looks as lanky as Jennifer's thus less than 5'7" height estimate for this doll is unlikely.

Heyy kates like 5'7. Butt what size is she she looks to bee a size 2 butt i might be wronge any one know the actual size?
jessica said on 19/May/09
Kate has to be around 5' 6" - 5' 7". No more than that. If she claims she's 5' 8", then she's wearing heels.

Why are all you people so convinced that celebrities are as tall as they state or is stated about them???? Especially you Vampiric. It is common knowledge actors are shorter in real life! THEY LIE!

5'7"-5'8" range for Kate.
Vampiric said on 3/Apr/09
You should watch Serendipity. Next to a very tall John Cusack she seems pretty tall herself.
I'd give her 5'7 on a flip flop day.

What is it about people on here and trying to make celebrities to be shorter than they are?

Looks about 5'2" here. Time for a legitimate downgrade for Kate. She's still as beautiful as ever though!
Cat said on 27/Mar/09
Click Here

In this shot, even if you want to allow for camera angles, it clearly shows that there is about 8-10 inches between Hugh and Kate. If Kate (in her wildest dreams) is 5'8", 4" heels (which she is most likely wearing) would make her 6'. 2" heels would make her 5'10"!!!! Plus the 8-10 inch height difference, would make Hugh 6'8-10", taking away 2" dress shoes for him, still would make him 6'6-8" and we know he's 6'2" on this site. Come on, what do you guys need to be convinced that Kate can't be more than 5'4", I'm even starting to think she's less and that Hugh is about 6'. Now a 5'4" Kate plus 4" heels would give her 5'8", plus the 8-10 inch height difference would make Hugh 6'2-4" (with a 2" height allowance for lifts) or a 5'2" Kate plus 4" heels making her 5'6" plus the 8-10 inch height difference would make Hugh 6'0-2" (allowing for his possible height of 6' plus 2" height allowance for lifts). He probably isn't wearing lifts and Kate is probably in 4" heels. Now we're talking some logic and sense.
Cat said on 27/Mar/09
Katie, at 168cm, you are already taller than Kate. She's about 163cm or 5'4". This site gives heights, but they're not accurate. Not in the slightest.
Cat said on 26/Mar/09
Click Here ... it's photos like these that make things very confusing, especially when celebs lie about their height (sometimes within reason, but it doesn't make it right) and why celebs like Kate Beckinsale can fool people into thinking she is taller than she is. Eva is about 4'10", if she's wearing 4" heels, that would still only make her (poor thing, I love her so much she's gorgeous) about 5'2", or thereabout allowing for actual heel height. If Kate has about 6" on Eva, that makes her about 5'8". If you take away her (probably 5" heels), you have a 5'3" Kate, 5'4" tops allowing for actual heel height again. If you want to dispute Eva's height with me, go ahead, you won't convince me, not after seeing the photo of Eva and Marcia Cross where Marcia has an easy 10" on Eva and Marcia is listed as 5'8", it's possible Marcia's taller and lies about her height, so the other actresses don't get caught out as being so short! They all lie and it's probably in their contracts!
Cat said on 26/Mar/09
Sorry that's 5'3-4" not 3/4 inch, and I meant to say if we assume Hugh is 6' which I think he is, even at 6'2" that would make Kate 5'4" tops. Like Angelina, she LOOKS small.
Cat said on 26/Mar/09
Check out that photo below again (for some reason it won't let me add it here as a link) of Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale (under Miyase, 26/Sep/08)

I am starting to find this site more and more ridiculous. If Hugh Jackman is listed here as 6'2" (which sounds about right, but wouldn't be surprised if he's only 6' - I'm learning to take off 1-2 inches from whatever celebheights puts up for each celeb) ... but let's assume he's 6'2", he has at least 5 inches on Kate Beckinsale in this pic and NEITHER of them are slouching or too far apart. I think it's a pretty good shot to indicate each of their heights. So if there's 5" difference, that would make Kate 5'7", takeaway her killer high platforms of approx 5", that gives a height for Kate of 5'2", let's be generous because we do have to allow some room for camera angles, etc but I woud say 5'3/4" tops. Which means 5'7" is absolute BS. Just like most of the heights for the celebrities on this site. Do you guys get paid by the industry or something? Or are your fantasies shattered when you realise that your fave celeb is shorter than he/she or the industry claim? It's pretty well known that actors are short to average height. Very few of them are genuinely tall or above average height.

I just saw her in the new Underworld movie today. She is def above average looking for a girl and probably considered tall by most. She may be just 5'7 but can look 5'8 plus.

Anonymous said on 12/Jan/09
If you look at the photo of Eva & Kate together, Kate has an easy 4" over Eva. Eva is (apparently) 5'1", so this would make Kate at least 5'5", but then you have to take into consideration heels and the height of the heels. Eva could have 2" heels, Kate could have 3". There are so many variables like camera angles and lighting, you would really be surprised. That's why you can never estimate a person's height by looking at them in a movie. How ridiculous. Again, so many variables. The only way to know a person's height is to have access to their medical records, actually meet them and know without a doubt your own height, and take into consideration shoes and hairdos, or they tell you their height honestly ... no female celebrity tells the truth about their height, especially when they are short, ie 5'5" or under, unless ofcourse, they are 5'6" or 5'7" or more, then they don't seem to be too shy about revealing their true height. I personally think Kate is about 5'5".

Angela Hartman, sorry to have to do this to you, but here goes. You claim Kate to be no more than 5'4" and yourself to be 5'6", and that you saw over Kate's head, well that is impossible to do! In order for you to have seen over Kate's head, you would have to be approx. 5'9" instead of 5'6"; which so happens to be 3" taller than your claimed height. So, according to this, if you truly were seeing over Kate's head, you most likely, were in high heels and she was not, or you two were on an escalator, and you were turned around looking down on her as she was a few stairs from you. So, please, which one is it?

In the movie click she was about 3 inches shorter than adam sandle who's about 175cm. I would say she is 5 foot 6 at most no taller. She looks the same height of jessica alba who is 5 foot 6. No way she's taller than 170.

Adam Sandler's being listed 178 cm here, if Kate is really 3 inches(3 x 2,48 = 7,44 cm ) shorter than him she should at least 170 cm. And I wonder how can Jessica Alba look the same as Kate? Jessica's tiny!

I was standing right beside her in a mall...LOL! She is very petite, but beautiful. And only about 5'4 at best. In underworld she is wearing PLATFORM boots to provide here with another 4-5 inches of height. She is quite short, and I can't imagine why on earth she would try to hide it. Small is beautiful too. At any rate, I am 5'6 and was looking OVER her her head. Enough said. Either way..I almost gasped when I read 5'8. NOT in a million years.
miyase said on 26/Sep/08
7 inches means 15 cm? I'm sorry that I'm not familiar with feet-pound units. But I guess Kate Beckinsale is 168 or at most 170 cm tall.

Missy said on 11/Nov/07
She is without doubt 5'5". You cannot tell in movies how tall a person is unless there's a frontal shot with the actors standing side by side and in flat shoes. The only movie I have seen her in where she does this is in "Much Ado About Nothing" where she walks side by side in a line holding waists with actors like Denzel Washington (who is a full head taller than her at 6') and Emma Thompson (who is 2 inches taller than her at 5'7"). You can see at a later part in the movie her flat brown sandals (all the women wear identical outfits in the movie). Her role in the movie was a short, quiet girl in which another character ridicules her for being. Why would they choose a tall girl (supposedly 5'7" or 5'8" as people are saying here) to play the role of a short woman?
John D said on 10/Nov/07
I was stood next to her in Heathrow Airport and she was wearing 2 inch heels, she was easily 3-4 inches taller than me (5'6) so I can honestly say kate is 5'8-5'9.
Never mind her height, she is one hell of a sexy looking women :)

How tall is kate really?. I just can't find out. She says she is 173 cm. Here you say she is 170 cm. How do you know that?.I really need to know. I would like to be as tall as she is.

What is this rubbish about her being short? Beckinsale is in the 5'7" range which is a good three inches taller than average (the equivalent of a 6ft male). She looks as tall as 5'10" Adam Sandler when she's in heels so 5'7" definitely.

They all seem to be wearing same size heels and Kate's the tallest. On the left of Beckinsale is Jennifer Garner, and on the right is Jaime King.

Seriously, is there anyone more beautiful than her?

She looks kinda tall because she's so skinny, and if I'm not wrong she had anorexia way back in her life.
She looks 5'8 to me, but she's probably a bit shorter.

i have been studying this super-beautiful actress which i love, saw her naked, saw her in shoes, saw her in flat shoes and saw her personally (got an autograph).

after all of this and about 1 year of full examination through websites and past experiences, i can finally say Beckinsale is 5'6 no more no less.

time to downgrade and put her ghost to rest.

At the MTV movie awards, she was wearing 4 inch heels next to Adam Sandler (5'10). While Sandler was wearing flat sneakers, Beckinsale was about 1 inch taller than him. I think she is around 5'6.5" to 5'7".

Interesting pics on getty. So, she stands as tall as Wahlberg, if not slightly shorter, and the pictures of her at the same event show she is wearing a 2-3 inch heal. 5'6" maybe?

but she might be hip swaying and kind of forcing herself down...hard to say exactly, but of course she really doesn't look tall
mcfan said on 9/Jan/06
Pretty good illustration of Beckinsale's height:

Blanchett is I would agree slightly over 5'8. I was quite suspicious initally with Beckinsale being only 5'7 because she appeared the same height as Chloe Sevigny in "Last Days Of Disco." After having looked at many photos on the web, I would say 5'7.5-5'7.75 is pretty close to her height. Most likely, Sevigny is 5'7.5 as well. Beckinsale seems to always wear 3-4 inch heels.
Marc said on 2/Jan/06
Christian Ble is 6'3", so if she's in flats that means she is 5'10". I think she is around 5'7".

"Last Days of Disco" both actresses were wearing similar shoes. I honestly didn't know Sevigny's height but I can tell you Beckinsale isn't taller than her. In fact, Sevigny might have been a hair taller.
PJ said on 5/Apr/05
Mr. Nice Guy is right, I was standing right next to Kate at LAX in the magazine booth and she was definitely about an inch taller than me (I am 5'7). And she wasn't wearing high heals either.
Mr. Nice Guy said on 16/Mar/05
I think they're both perfect height (Kate+Keira)! But I think Kate is closer to 5'8" than 5'7", there's other angles of her with Keira and she does look about an inch taller. It could also depend on heals and what not. There's also pics of Kate with Gwen Stefani in which she looks 2 inches taller than the 5'6" Gwen, I would give her 173 cm.
