From that day on I prayed that I wouldn’t grow. I just wanted to be short so I could be on Broadway. I have actually not grown since. So my mother blames my five-foot-two height on my passion for being on Broadway.

Would kimberley snyder be around 5ft 3 going by this photo rob? I think Kate and jenna both have a heel advantage but kimberley would definitely be below her 5ft 5 listing on some sites
Editor Rob
yeah, it looks like she has an inch less heel, so likely 5ft 3 zone

Kate is talking to a guy with a large, potato nose is 'House of Cards', and she doesn't mince her words. She ends her sentence with, "What you're really telling me is to **** off!"

This being a political drama, I get the impression that how she speaks isn't far removed from reality!

Yes, she looks rather tiny next to these men, and I was wondering if she could be 5ft1, but then I remembered that she's one inch shorter than her sister, Rooney, who has also starred in a David Fincher production: 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'.

Porbably 5'2 1/4 next to nick robinson who is 6'0.5-6'1. if she was male she would be a about 5'7 1/2 so shes not short, a little below average.

I'm got my beady eye on Kate in 'Urban Legends: Bloody Mary' again. I feel quite confident in saying now, having seen her in 'American Horror Story', that Kate definitely favours the horror genre!

5ft2. πŸ˜πŸ’

She's a proud member of the honest club!
Editor Rob
She's a welcome addition to it. She holds up pretty well with Jamie Bell
Nik said on 9/Jun/19
I am glad that she is proud of her height!

Kate plays a huge part in 'American Horror Story'! I have never really taken in her acting abilities so well until now, and she's a feisty little fire cracker! I knew she wouldn't be tall; her sister is only 5ft3, after all, but Kate, at 5ft2, is that little bit shorter. She plays a seductive spirit, and she wants a baby!

5ft2 it is. πŸ‘»πŸ”₯

She looks 5'2"!

I am watching Kate in 'Urban Legends: Bloody Mary' on the 'Horror Channel' right now!
I recognised Kate straight away from her picture here on Celebheights - the long, red hair and the petite height.
When I first saw her picture, I thought, "Her hair isn't as dark as her sister, Roony's, but the heights are similar, with Kate being the slightly shorter of the girls."
Roony entranced my boyfriend with her kick-ass performance in 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', and she did rather come over as brave to me for a 5ft3 girl in that film, but she was excellent at martial arts, which SO helps!
Kate has been given an altogether more 'girlie' type role in this, but she is good in it and it has been a fine introduction to her for me in a film which I would recommend to my friends, and I don't half feel embarrassed if I ever let them down!
She gets the 5ft2 I was expecting her to be.

She's a perfection.

What a hot lady. I didn't realize she was this short.
Mouse22 said on 18/Aug/15
Actually, I looked at pics of hers and from the look of her upper arms between shoulder and elbow I guessed she must be not more than 5'2" or 5'3", her anatomy doesn't look tall to me even when there's nobody else in the picture.

Love her! Love her height and her nose it's perfect!
Chris said on 28/Aug/14
She's a very unique beauty and i agree that she looks taller on her own
Nicky said on 4/Mar/14
Ideal height for a woman is about 5'6.
This is simply ridiculous. You get lovely women in all heights and builds and who are you to say what is ideal, anyway?
Back to topic, I think Kate Mara looks adorable, very feminine and proportionate.
Kam said on 20/Feb/14
Very pretty face, but her body is too tiny. Ideal height for a woman is about 5'6.
J.Lee said on 27/Jan/14
I thought she was 5 ft 6 or 7. Rob, do you think she has a taller look?
Editor Rob
some people in photos on their own can certainly look taller than you imagine

I was standing right next to her in London for a couple of minutes, shoulder to shoulder, waiting to cross the street. I'm only 5' and she appeared shorter to me than 5'3" but not that much shorter, so I'd say she's 5'2", barely. She's of average built but seems fairly petite since she's so short! She was very cute, but 'normal-looking' enough in reality. The short moments she glanced at me, I saw she has the same magnetic eyes I know from her commanding screen presence in TV and movies, so I'm not surprised she's more famous now than ever!

I would say she's around 5'1", 5'2" the tallest. She appears to be much smaller than 5'3"
gigi said on 30/Nov/11
she looks shorter than this on american horror story especially next to dylan mcdermott who is supposedly 6'0"
venus said on 24/Dec/07
Definitely 160cm, might be shorter.
