How tall is Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley's Height

5ft 6 ¼ (168.3 cm)

English actress best known for roles in Pirates of the Caribbean, Bend it Like Beckham and Jack Ryan. She says in the Sunday Mirror magazine in July 2004 after meeting Natalie Portman, "There is a huge height difference. I'm 5ft 7 and she's 5ft 3" and in another occasion mentioned her weight: "I am 5'7" and weigh only 110 lbs.". However, earlier in her career she listed herself in a 2005 Spotlight Directory as 5 feet 6 inches.

Well, that can be true Rob πŸ‘, but in general I think that 5'6 as a height looks really weird for women when you see them barefoot or with flats, and 5'6 women like 80% of them have a complex that they didn't reach 5'7 so they always try to wear heels or athletes with hidden heel (lifts) to appear feminine tall and not just tallish. And I do notice when the woman is 5'6 and not 5'7. But I do agree with you when you praise 5'8 as an ideal height for women, because thinking πŸ€” deeply there are also 5'8 women that have amazing figure like Cameron Diaz for example. But from 5'9 is definitely too much and total turn off.
Have you heard Rob that in France is a cabaret called "Crazy horse Paris" and there the maximum height requirment is 5'7 3/4, it's like the peak of perfection to them. It may be true because I have heard from another country too women describing 5'7 3/4 as royal height. But I have seen so many good looking women and with splendid figures in 5'7, 5'7.5 range that have made me think that 5'7.5 is the peak but maybe the real peak is 5'7 3/4 considering how hot and feminine Cameron Diaz is. The only thing I really do know is that women look intimidating and too masculine looking and have huge feet (40/41european shoe nr.) when they reach 5'9. That's why I don't prefer it in the least.
Which would you choose Rob as top three the best ideal heights for women describing them in metric system? Thanks, health and happiness may be always with you Rob!
Mariana said on 17/Feb/23
Thank you Rob. I do really believe that 5'7 1/2 is the peak height for women like comparing for example with the age of women of 28 which is the peak of their beauty and can't get better than this, when they go over that age ( I'm talking about the vast majority of women of course, for 80% of female population in the world, because of course that exists also that 20% that defeats the age beyond 28). But in the height case is standard, fixed and unchanged no matter how pretty she is, beautiful figure a woman has if she goes up to 5'7.75 or otherwise 5'7 3/4 she loses that sweetness. And too I think that going below 5'7 1/2 women can look good until exactly 4 inches below which is 5'3 1/2. When it goes down to flat 5'3" is when everyone points out that a girl or a woman is short. This is from my experience over the years that people truly start commenting on short stature when they see a woman whose height is 5'3 flat and below ( even thought thankfully God I'm taller than 5'3" myself) All the best Rob and wish you great success always πŸ™Œ This is truly wonderful height site and also the most popular height site in the world, in which we people who have interest in human height can discuss and sharing our opinions and discussing with each other freely.
Editor Rob
Also bear in mind that leg-torso ratio can play a role in how others perceive us. When you combine that with a smaller head, sometimes even a 5ft 6 women can be photographed and appear 5ft 8 range.
Mariana said on 16/Feb/23
I agree with the other poster who has written that 5'7 and 5'7 1/2 females are more elegant looking than 5'6 females and I would add that they're more feminine than 5'8 females.
Rob, please can you explain to me you as an expert of height why only 5'7 range has that perfect balance of looking at the same time normal looking woman, also at the same time like a supermodel,why 5'7 has that thing, that Golden Middle which even 5'6 and 5'8 that are bordering heights lack, and let alone 5'5 and under or 5'9 and over. This is seen in many 5'7 famous women like Catherine Zeta Jones, Angelina Jolie, Monica Bellucci and also in Royal members women like Queen Rania of Jordan which is 5'7 1/2 or Princess Madeleine of Sweden which is 5'7". It's like a phenomenon that 5'7 women when they are also pretty and have beautiful figure they just look magnificent and different from all other heights. Why happens that? Thanks Rob!
Editor Rob
Women on average have a smaller head by a fraction, so within 5ft 7-8 range maybe it's the proportions that appeal.

A 6 foot guy 100% towers over you Lee, if we’re being honest.
Ben - 186cm said on 26/Jan/23

4 inches is borderline towering. A guy who is 4 inches shorter than me barely comes above my eyes. 6 inches is a definite towering. My mother is 5’7 and I have to look down to see the top of her head.
Leesheff1985 said on 6/Oct/22
Can't believe she thinks four inches is a huge height difference. I bet most guys of say five eight wouldn't say a six foot guy towered over them. I don't think they would even tower over me as a pretty tiny five six fella though yes they would be a lot taller. Nothing to brag about though being tall

⭐ I must emphasize that I was talking about the tragic demise of the daughters of Keira's Russian character from 'A Dangerous Method', named Sabina Spielrein, in my comment dated 6th June 2021. ⭐
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Jun/21
I've always found Keira such a compelling watch. Recently I watched her in David Cronenberg's 'A Dangerous Method', (Re: Sigmund Freud's practices) in which she starred as a psychiatric patient who became a brilliant psychiatrist herself.

She played a very well educated Russian lady, and was a Jewess. If you watch the notes David Cronenberg leaves at the end, you'll notice that Keira's two real life daughters were executed in the gas chambers. 😒

I love this woman and acquired nearly all her films in a matter of days, except for her more recent ones.

She has an excellent taste in music too, having seen Kate Bush and James Blunt in concert. James dedicated his song "You're Beautiful" to her! πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜˜

Hey Rob !
What's your take on her lovely husband, James Righton ? I've seen him being placed at 5'9 (1,75) but I can't see him this high from what I've seen. I cannot see almost 3 inches between them. Some times I can see two inches and say ok he is 5'8 and change (1,73) but most of the time the difference seem to fluctuate between 1.5-2 inches between them leaving me with the conclusion that he is most likely a weak 5'8 (1,725) since Keira is a strong 5'6 (1,685). It is interesting that when they pose for an event and Keira is in heels, Keira is slightly shorter but she wears small heels (probably like 5-6cms of height) and tends to cross her legs and even slouch a bit (?).

What's your take ?
Editor Rob
wouldn't have guessed under 5ft heels he can still look taller than her.
mrfunnyguy said on 27/Oct/20
@Paul Wood 5'7 girls are in general more thin and elegant looking compared to 5'6 girls, so that's why I guess.
beadbadobbb said on 5/Oct/20
A beautiful English woman, looks as tall as Emma stone and Kate Winslet. A strong 5'6" for sure. Maybe 5'10" in heels?
Peter Sun said on 23/Sep/20
I doubt if she has a solid 5'7, but maybe 5ft 6.75 would suit her, and she kinda rounded it up.

I saw Kiera Knightley at Heathrow airport a while back. I am ,5ft 6" and she was a good 2 and 1/2" taller then me. Was surprised as I thought she would be smaller. Slim lady

She’s a solid 5’7”. Not 5’6”. She looks her true height and may have grown an inch from 2005. It’s possible. Keira needs an upgrade on this site.

Both Keira Knightley and Rita Ora were on the Graham Norton Show, both wearing similar sized heels. When they hugged, it was clear that Rita was at least 1 inch taller than Keira. On this site, Keira is listed as 5'6.25, whereas Rita is listed as 5'5.25. Surely a downgrade for Keira, or upgrade for Rita?
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Dec/18
In the early hours of this morning, I dreamt that I was back in hospital after my hip replacement operation. You'd never guess who was in the bed next to me? It was Keira Knightley, and I had SUCH a laugh with her!

Rob,interestingly enough,she was initially listed 5ft 7,then downgraded to 5ft6.75,again to 5ft 6.5,and finally to the current listing 5ft 6.25. So,what is the maximum height you'd argue for her? Or do you think she could be just 5'6 flat?
Thank you.

I think the current listing might hold for a while...unless she does some pilates for a few years and begins looking noticeably taller!

Rob I'm curious about this pic : Click Here What would you say about her heels and J. McAvoy's height ? They seem like 6 cm or so and his shoes seem quite flat
Shouldn't have more difference between them than that ?
Editor Rob
McAvoy has a solid work boot on there, no less than 1.3-1.4 range. She has a heel that is no less than 3 inches of height.

In the movie bend it like Beckham Shaznay Lewis is listed as 5'7 (but really 5'6) is shorter than Keira Knightley who was listed 5'7 but has just been downgraded 5'6 . you might change the height and also look at the movie premiere pictures which also show she's taller than 5'6 just bad posture.

She always looks average height to me when she is not wearing heels
Darius said on 28/Nov/17
Wow. The listing which was 5'7" until an year ago is now 5'6.25". Maybe she will get further downgraded to 5'6" down the line. Who knows. Anyway, it always seemed to me she was well below off 5'7" because she didn't seem that tall in movies in which I've seen her.
In my opinion this listing is spot on. I wouldn't go over and below this listing for now, at least until there is some solid evidence.
So I would say Mccavoy is a 5'7" guy. No over, not below it.
Allie said on 24/Nov/17
She looks like Gal Gadot and Natalie Portman's long lost sister! Funny how they're all several inches apart.

Weak 5'7.
Aussy Gal said on 19/Nov/17

Peter175 said on 4/Nov/17
Really this short? I think 5'6.5 is what she usually looks. Obviously shorter than James Mcavoy, but not by more than half inch

I'd say she's closer to 5ft7 than 5ft6

Quite interesting. From 5ft 7 to 6.75, then 6.5 and finally,to 6.25.

It might be accurate, I remember thinking she was nearly 3 inches under Steve Carell, who I'm not convinced is over 5'9

Rising to be fair in that pic the camera is tilted in his favor, he looks near the same height as Bloom who's at least 3 inches taller

Kiera gets 5'6.5-75 for me and Mcavoy gets 171

I wouldn't put her as being shorter than 5'6
Jazz said on 2/Jun/17
Leighton Meester is taller than Keira Knightley. Selena Gomez is the same height as Leighton Meester in Very Good Girls. More food for thought that Selena Gomez is taller than Keira Knightley barefoot
RisingForce said on 31/May/17
Peter, I see her 1 cm taller than McAvoy in that first full pic and she is bending her knee a bit, but you're right that it's a smaller difference than it should be. One reason is I think Keira is 5'6.5" because 171 cm Jerry Bruckheimer measured up at least as well to Keira when she apparently wasn't bending her knee: Click Here There's a shot that shoes conclusively Bruckheimer doesn't have lifts either.
Jazz said on 30/May/17
Wow, logic below makes sense... Selena Gomez and Cara Delevingne were similar in height when they showered together (barefoot off course). Cara is often pictured much taller than Keira Knightley when together... Thus, Selena Gomez may actually be comfortably taller than Keira Knightley is they measured up barefoot.

Rob, please answer.

How is she and Mcavoy the same height. Is he wearing lifts/insoles

Click Here

I know women tend to bend knees in heels to look shorter, but look through all of these. It doesn't matter her footwear he is taller than her or near her height in heels. He's at least 1 cm taller if they were to stand together barefoot.

Only other thing I can think is that he is wearing insoles. Might be that because mcavoy generally looks the 5'7

Strange pic on Google where Leighton Meester owns Keira Knightley by 2 inches- both in heels, Leighton's might be higher. Not only is Leighton taller, but seemingly much stronger built. Must be photoshopped. But then again, Leighton is much taller than Diane Kruger, and Diane and Keira are very similar in height. Leighton needs an upgrade, or Keira a downgrade? Leighton 168cm, Keira 165cm
Justine said on 2/Jan/17
Alicia Vikander is listed as 5'5.25 on this site, however, stood the same height, if not taller than Keira Knightley in the Anna Kerina Premieres in LA and the UK. Always knew Keira was overrated in height. Remember, she looks equally tall as Diane Kruger (who suprisingly was shorter than Dakota Fanning). Keira at 165cm maybe?
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Nov/16
I see from the comments that there seems to be quite a lot of scepticism over Keira's height. I have only ever read that she is 5ft7 and it is for this reason that I started thinking "isn't 5ft7 really quite small when seen on the silver screen?"
Having just read Elvis's argument for her being 2 inches smaller and then an interesting report from someone who had actually met her, I am beginning to wonder myself! I shall compare her to Lawrence Fox, 6ft3, next time I see 'The Hole' or I can choose from over 20 other of her films that I am happily in possession of.
One last thing: isn't she just so stunningly beautiful that you can easily overlook her height?
elvis said on 29/Oct/16
No way! 5ft 5in max. She has 3 inch heels next to James mcvoy who is 5ft 7in tall and she is max one inch taller.

I live in NYC and went to see Therese Raquin and got her to sign my playbill yesterday. She looks just as beautiful in real life. I'd say she's only around my height though (5'5"). She is definitely not 5'7". I think most celebrities lie and add 2 inches to their height.

I have posted here that I met her at the Ivy in LA years back and she was about 5'3". And again re: the pic with felicity jones.

She is definitely lying! Compare her height to Ellen DeGeneres (who is supposed to be 5'6.5 on this website), bearing in mind that Keira knightly is only a little taller than her in about 5 inch heels, whereas Ellen is just wearing trainers. I think Keira is about 5'3 to be honest.

She has extra long body and very short legs, I'd say her legs were like someone of an equally proportioned 5ft 2/3 girl. Can't see her being anything under 5ft 6.
thatgirl said on 18/Feb/14
I really like her appearance, her height is perfect for a woman but i don't think that she's 170 cm. Look at her and James Mcavoy, according to James height (170 cm ) i think Keira's height is 165-166. her slim body makes her look taller. of course she isn't short, as i said her height and body is perfect but let's be honest,her height isn't 170 cm.
Just said on 27/Dec/13
She's 5'7 just like me. This height makes me sometimes look short and sometimes look tall.
There is nothing wrong with her proportions. Everyone has different proportions. Some have long legs, some have a slim waist. Each frame has it's own charm.

You should know the truth: Keira is 162 cms. During the film festival in Rome I met Johnny Depp and other actors (like brad pitt..)and he is nothing more than 170 cms. Orlando Bloom that is 173 cms (I'm talking about Orlando thanks to my study with photos of Johnny e Orlando's height) has been Keira's boyfriend, and if you see the photos of her and him walking on the street you will give me reason! She is 13-15 cm (the photos in which they have very low shoes, like barefoot) shorter than him!

I'm 5'7" (~172) tall and considered as short here in sweden since the average length here is at least 5'8", (174 cm). And I actually do see myself as short, but also that its quite an agreeable length to be. Not tall, not short.

Looked 5'7 next to Johnny Depp. I'm currently 5'7 so her and I are eye-to-eye. I'm supposed to reach a peak of 6'4. If I reach that, I better start learning to look down at a lot of people. Anyways, 5'7 sounds right for Keira. She seems honest about her claim.
Alexa said on 12/Aug/12
To the person saying 5ft7 isn't tall, don't be stupid! 5'7 is well above average height for a woman and while it's not as tall as 5'10 it certainly isn't regarded as short by any means!
5'7 women can look just as statuesque as those a few inches taller than them plus they can reach a good 5'11 in heels, I wouldn't say that's 'short' seeing it's taller than most men.
Q said on 9/Aug/12
5'5". People who have met Natalie Portman put her around 5'1" at best. If you look at photos of Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan together wearing similar heels, they are the same height. People who have met Carey Mulligan put her at 5'5". It seems the first thing you learn in the business is to add 2 inches to your actual height. It would be more accurate to quote Keira Knightley talking about how she towers over most actresses in Hollywood.

Somewhere i read 5'8.5(174) but i knew immediately that was false.I think 5'7 is right for her.

@ pinky the only picture in which Mcavoy is taller than Knightley is when she stood w/o her heels, all the other pics has her either slouching or standing with her legs apart, as to Mcavoy has heels on his boots as well. I'm quite sure she's 5'7. She stood as tall as Carey Mulligan in Never Let Me Go

In pride in prejudice she is basically as tall as Rosamund Pike who is a very tall person. I would say she's 5'7

i guess you cannot compare a girl's height with that of a man. you cannot see what those guys have hidden in their shoes. whereas, a girl can barely hide anything in their high-heel shoes to add more height.
shaboopie said on 5/Jun/11
okay, the girl is 5'5". Now way in Hell is she 5'7"
Pinky said on 3/Jun/11
Sienna Miller said she is 5'6", do you also assume that she knows her own height? Because in the photos is also clear that there is not only 1 inch of difference between Keira and Sienna.
If she were 5'7", could not be in high heels next to James McAvoy and do not seem much taller than he.
ai said on 31/May/11
She said she is 5'7, I'm assuming she knows her own height. Plus she stands taller than Sienna Miller (clearly taller)
Pinky said on 29/May/11
Venice, September. 1-2007. Keira, Rupert Friend and James McAvoy. I do not think Keira is fully straight, this picture is to see James' shoes:Click Here

Keira, James and the director of "Atonement". In the photo on which they are sit, you can see her shoes.
Click Here
I'm not sure how high are those shoes, but I'd say 10 cm (4 inches), although they might be 12 cm. His shoes (in the other photo you can see them better) will give him about 3cm: 170+3=173. Her shoes, if they are 10 cm, will give her 8cm: 170+8=178. I don't see a difference of 5cm (about 2") in that photo, they look the same height.

James and Keira in a photoshoot for the Empire Magazine:Click Here

Does anyone know how tall Rupert Friend is?:Click Here
Keira and Sienna (presumably 5'5") during the filming of "The Edge of Love":Click Here

For me, Keira is 5'5" or maybe a bit more, but even 5'6" I think is too much for her. For an actress I think it's best not to be very tall (although 5'5" is still above average in most countries), she can wear heels and her partner did not seem short, even though he is. Also sure the cinema tricks to make an actor look taller, are less expensive than to the ones for a too tall actor appears shorter.
downgrade please said on 28/May/11
i'm sorry, she's beautiful and a fantastic actress, but she needs to be downgraded to 5'5" or 5'4.5" at least, because I saw her at the Misanthrope and I AM 5'7", she was at least 2 inches shorter than me.
Will said on 10/Apr/11
I am dead serious that Keira Knightley is 5'5 1/2" tops. No way in reluctant hell is Keira 5'7" tall.
gabby said on 6/Apr/11
hey, i'm in med schoool, so this is what we learn: if you want to determine someone's real height, you should pay attention on the his/hers arms (from the elbow to the shoulder). Look at Keira's arms: they are not of a person's who is 170 cms. Maybe 164 - 166.

You must have guessed this height with the help of KYOJI!!!

Anyway, 5'7 sounds about right.
Niamh said on 22/Dec/10
NO WAY is she 5'7. I am 5'1 and I saw her face to face in London after the opening night of her first stage role in The Misanthrope. I swear on my life she was quite close to my height; wearing boots while I was wearing sneakers. I spoke to her and was extremely surprised at the similarity of our heights. Maybe I was just extremely tired, but I would peg her at 5'4 MAXIMUM.
Sam said on 5/Dec/10
Don't forget in that picture in addition to lifts or heeled shoes, he has ELVIS hair. It's adding at least that additional "2 inches" as Pinky claims.
Also, Garfield could just be lying about his height. Actors often have to do that to appease the agents, casting directors and their own egos.
Anonymous said on 5/Dec/10
Pinky doesn't consider that 14cm heels do NOT actually give you 14cm, but merely around 10-11cm. Have you guys ever worn high heels?
santa said on 23/Nov/10
although i agree with pinky saying she might not be the full 5'7 she claims you need to remember that wearing shoes that are 14cm/5.5 inches do not make you that much taller. 14cm shoes will probably give you about 12cm/4.5 inches. Id peg her at 5'6, no taller than 5'6.5 :)
I agree said on 28/Oct/10
I agree with Pinky; 5.5 on average. Pinky's analysis was thorough

In POTC she and Johnny depp(5'9) looks almost had same height, just diffrent 6cm. I'm pretty sure she's 5'7
Debbie said on 23/Apr/09
Wow Cali that is a VERY good shot. I doubt McAvoy is wearing lifts. His shoes give him probably an inch of added height and she seems dead on the same as him WITH the booties. (I like her outfit btw) She is no more than 5'4.
Debbie said on 23/Apr/09
JP Keira is wearing 3-4 inch heels in that pic w/ McAvoy and the angle doesn't help either.

5'5/5'6 i think is average height for women i think.. anyone shorter than that are 'short!'

Nope, 5'4 is more like it.

The picture with mena suvari isnt a great one for judging height...neither of them are standing straight and you cant see keira's shoes. Although its clear keira's afew inches taller than suvari, her 5'3.5 is very questionable if you look at some of the comments and pictures on her page.

I'm still going with 5'7" because that is her height, but to cover myself incase I'm completely proved wrong which is fairly unlikely because I think I'm pretty good and judging height lol i'll say 5'6.5" at the very very least!!!!
Cruiz said on 10/Apr/09
I dont agree with Debbie saying that shes as low as 5'3 or 5'4, but i do think that a slight downgrade is needed...i know people were saying that McAvoy could be wearing lits/chunky footwear but they still wouldnt give as much as a decent pair of heels would! On another note, she only looks a bit taller than Siena Miller...Siena is here as 5'5 but basically everyone posting and all pictures point to her being lower!
aram x said on 8/Apr/09
Her long torso and short leg proportions aren't exactly the most attractive if you ask me. She has like the leg length of a 5,4" person on the torso of someone 5,10". Her body type reminds me of Michael Phelps (except much skinner).
JP said on 7/Apr/09
And just to add... that photo Cali posted below shows her next to 5'9 director Joe Wright, add in his shoes, then her 2-3 inch heels... do the maths, plus James McAvoy at 5'7 wearing very! chunky footwear i think probably giving him a lift and is ever so slightly smaller than her, we have some confirmation there of her 5'7 claim wouldn't you agree?! No more than 5'4 Cali and Debbie say, what a strange thing to say... i would say lol
JP said on 6/Apr/09
Debbie thats an absolute joke! my mother and sister recently saw her walking down Brick Lane and said she was a tall girl, a good few inches taller than my 5'4 sister and 5 inches taller than my 5'2 mother, McAvoy might of been wearing 2 inch lifts and they do a lot camera angles in his favour...

But this photo proves you are wrong and you can't lie when on the red carpet... clearly!

I agree with Cali this website has James McAvoy at 5'7 so if that is true which I doubt anyone would argue, then why does Keira look the same height in 2-3 inch heels? She should be downgraded. She is no more than 5'3 or 5'4. LOVE her either way.

She's definitely no smaller than 5'7", in fact I'd say she was taller.
alexa said on 16/Feb/09
I think the pics Cali posted below show shes not a true 5'7. Id say shes about 5'6 though, which is still tall enough. Because she's so thin (and with the help of hells) she can sometimes get away with saying 5'7.

5'5/5'6 i think is average height for women i think.. anyone shorter than that are 'short!' i think keira just looks taller because she is very slim and wears heels..

and why does everyone want to be skinny all of a sudden? i think it looks sickeningly unhealthy after seeing nicole ritchie at her skinniest stage.. i'd rather be curvy like gemma arterton at the bafta nominations this year!

mark said on 10/Feb/09
Keira looks tall because she is a good taller than average height. 5f7 is taller than average. Also, her torso is very, very long and thin and she has long thin arms, wide slender shoulders, and a long neck. Her legs are thick and short so we ususally do not see much below the waist. 5f7 is about right.
Anonymous said on 7/Jan/09
I'm 5'7 too, but I'm not as skinny as she is. We have roughly the same body type though. Slightly flat chested, muscular legs and flat stomach. I'd like to be skinnier though, maybe a bit bigger than she is.

I dont see why everyone is so worked up about her height. being tall or short its no big deal. I model for Dolly magazine (Australia) and most of the models i meet are a good 3 or 4 inches shorter than me and im 5'11" but i like being tall for my age (15).

I say 5ft 6 is her true height. At times she could get away with being taller but at other times she looks small and if actor james mcavoy is 5ft 7 or so theres about an inch between them in atonement and at the awards.

Brother H 5'9.5" is avg for white men at the moment. Unless you are in the Netherlands where avg is 5'11.5" It makes sense. Most white men are between 5'8" and 6'0."

I think Keira is gorgeus too, but I cant see why everyone keeps on saying she looks tall as a model (a tall one I presume, around 5'10 or so). In Domino and Pirates of the Caribean she didint seem tall at all. She doest move as if she were long. And wearing heels and everything in the film, she was still visibly shorter than orlando bloom in the wedding dress scene, like 4 inches or so less.
She cant be any bigger than 166cm, IMPOSSIBLE.
whatever said on 15/Aug/08
she is 5'7 She is thin that is why she looks to tall! And heels add a lot of length especially since the trend now is like 5 inch heels!
Caleb said on 14/Aug/08
I remember her being interviewed on the red carpet, either at Cannes or the Oscars, and the interviewer said she looked like a model, and was as tall as a model, but she obviously wearing big heels, so 5'7" is probably about right, as with three or four inch heels on, she would give the impression of being supermodel tall.

yeah she is definitely 5'7. she's spot on in most movies and in that atonement movie apparently her costar is also 5'7, but haha god forbid a guy is the same height as a girl and they had him wear lifts so he could appear taller... on another note, isn't natalie portman 5'1?
Marion said on 24/May/08
I do believe Keira Knightley is in fact 5'7".

You must consider her "body type" in this case. She is a classic "pear shape", which means her weight is in her thighs, hips, and general leg area. On top of that, she has short legs and a long torso. I think this could give the illusion that she is much shorter than she is. For example, look at a girl with long legs -- she can appear much taller than she is, but ultimately be much shorter in reality. This can be applied in Keira's circumstance, just only the opposite.

Here is a photo of Keira and Sienna Miller on set: Click Here They're wearing matching wellies, so there is virtually no height advantages to either one, considering they are wearing the same shoe. Sienna Miller claims to be 5'5", although I suspect she is around 5'4" at most. In the photo Keira is obviously a few inches taller her, which would bring us in the 5'7" range.

Also, James McAvoy is 5'7", and at several of the Atonement premieres Keira appears taller than him because of her heels. I looked at a few photos and her heels don't appear to be exceedingly tall or anything, and judging from that I WOULD say that without the she WOULD be his height. Which is 5'7".
Lola said on 17/May/08
I agree with most of you on her seeming not so tall, because her torso is longer than her legs. So it appears that she is short for that reason. When most likely she is 5'7" like she says.

People think I look 5'7 or 5'8, and I'm 5'4 1/2 and its only because I have longer legs and an everage torso. Being thin helps too I guess. Id say she weighs less than 110. I weigh 109/110 and I'm sure I could look better at 104.
Kay said on 16/Mar/08
I am 5' 6" and 110 with the same body type and I can say with certainty that she weighs less than me, maybe around 100lbs no more than 105.
C. said on 10/Mar/08
I think Natalie is shorter than 5'3" (always looks closer to 5'2") and Keira looks closer to 5'6" honestly. I don't really care for her though-- I don't think she's beautiful in the least (not to mention quite boyish regarding her figure) and appears quite stuck-up. Meh.

since when is 5'9 the average height for a man!? i thought it was 5'11 for white guys and 6'0 for islanders.

and this chick looks like she can be 5'7, blame her thin build and long(sexy ;p)legs

ive seen her with a 5'10 actor and 5'6 actor(i have no idea wat the bloodyhell their names are 0_0) i do know the 5'10 guy is white and the 5'6 guy is chinese.
both men were taller than her. well the 5'6 guy looked taller coz his eyes were above hers.
Kathy said on 31/Jan/08
I have seen a photo of Keira and Sienna miller. They both look to wear shoes with heels, but Keira looks 4-5cm taller than Sienna and Sienna is around 165cm. So maybe Keira is really around 169-170cm tall. But James Mcavoy is 170cm tall and at the Atonement premier she looks shorter than him.
elizabeth said on 27/Jan/08
No way is she a solid 5'7, around the 169m claim is more appropriate.
brett said on 24/Jan/08
if you look at all the pictures from the atonement premier, she is just about james mcavoy's height and he is 5'7. one would assume she isn't wearing flats to a red carpet event, so she is definitely shorter than 5'7. maybe 5'5-5'6? i think she needs a downgrade.

Ending the debate right here-I was NY last year and asked for her to sign a mag for me(she was with this really skinny guy)-she did-she was really nice, she said I had nice blue eyes-hers are dark brown. Anyway I am 5"9, my sis was with me she is 5"7 and was wearing flats-so was sis was an inch taller os so. BAM! Debate over. Keira is a def 5"6. BTW Jonny Dep is about 5"7 no way that gut is 5"10-no way.
not tall not short said on 29/Jul/07
FYI: people can have additional vertebrae (thoracic region), giving the 'long torso' many of you comment on. It elongates the form as well. Keira is one of the most beautiful faces around. She isn't short either, and is modelling in all the top ads in top fashion magazines very successfully. Yes... she has it all! She is also young and has a couple years of growth left, so don't be surprised if she says she is 5'8" because all of us continue to grow into our early 20s and growth spurts are unpredictable.
Alex said on 22/May/07
She was down to around 100lbs I read last summer or the summer before that. 100lbs or 105 or even 110lbs at 5'7 is skinny but I think she looks ok though.

Alex said on 13/Feb/07
Keira Knightley does have a disproportionately longer torso in comparison to her legs. She may be 5'7", but she's top-long. You can see some pictures on the Internet where she has her legs curled next to her body. A person with long legs will usually have the top of their knees reach at or above their shoulders (most runway models, in fact, actually go even above their shoulders). Hers top out way below her shoulders. And if you see images of her standing (preferably with shorts on, for full perspective) you can tell her torso is longer than her body.

Incidentally, Natalie Portman is also similarly proportioned (aka Denise Austin-"low butt"-to-ground, albeit she is shorter.

She's the kind of person that for some reason looks taller than she is, as , for

Alex said on 5/Feb/07
Glenn, thats what I was saying when I see someone 4-5 inches shorter than me its a big difference to me as I'm pretty much towering over them. I can see over the top of someone who is 5'8 and my eye level comes to the top of someone who is 5'8.5. And my eye level is a good 4.5 inches from the top of my head and I'm 6'0.5.

I'd say Keira could be 5'7 but her skinny frame can make her appear taller but 5'7 is very possible still, 5'3 I could agree with for Natalie, 5'2 at the very shortest. What does Keira weigh? I read 100lbs in a recent magazine but that estimate may not be the most accurate though. But for someone 5'7 100lbs is pretty light. She doesn't look bad to me though.
Glenn said on 15/Jan/07
I agree.thats a HUGE difference.and I agree that Portman might be shorter.
Alex said on 14/Jan/07
She says 5'7 and 5'3 is a huge different and she's right for the most part. Some people will say 4-5 inches is a small difference and I have to disagree. Thats a big difference. And Portman isn't even 5'3 from what I hear. A little less most say. When I am near someone 5'8 I'm in between 4 and 5 inches taller and I feel like I'm basically towering over them.
Rob, when you see someone 4-5 inches taller than you don't you feel towered over? I do.

Keira I believe is 5'7 though. What do you think Glenn?

She doesn't quite seem to be 5'7, about 5'5 to 5'6 is right. She is teeny miny next to 6 ft plus Cilve Owen in King Arthur and next to her 6'0 ft boyfriend even shorter. I guess she looks tall becase of her slim frame.

Keira is about 5'5" TOPS. A friend of mine met her in London, and my friend is dead on 5'7, and she was barefoot and Keira was in flats when they met and she said Keira was 5'5 tops. No more, and no less.

Keira certainly looked all of 5'7" in Bend it Like Beckham. She was one of the tallest girls on the team. It's weird, though, I always thought she was taller. Her torso is really long compared to her legs!

I think 5'7" sounds reasonable, wouldn't say under 5'6" and maybe somewhere between the two. In Pirates of the Caribeean, barefoot on the beach Johnny Depp was barely taller than her.

5-6 1/2 Id say.
Bob said on 5/Oct/06
to me Keira really looks 5-7.Sometimes she looks taller, but she also wears high heels.
if you ask me, 5-7 sounds realistic. so, i would give her a 5-7.

there's a behind the scenes video of the vanity fair shoot, where keira and scarlett both posed nude. in the one scene where they're standing nearish eachother, keira looks only a little bit taller than scarlett. sooo, 5'5? 5'6?

hey Anonymous, i think she was wearing high shoes, so she must be 5'6 or something like that without shoes.
kiera said on 9/Sep/06
keira is 166 cm
Anonymous said on 8/Sep/06
hey chelsealova- did u see what shoes she was wearing? 5'9" seems a lot for keira really and if she really is only 7st 10lbs then that would make her super skinny- which she is i suppose...
Chelsealova said on 5/Sep/06
No way I met her on a West Ham - Chelsea match and im 5'9 without shoes and she was bout the same or just bigger 6ft
alice said on 30/Aug/06
i just read somewhere that she was 5'7" and only 7st 10lbs- she's always looked v. thin to me so perhaps this height is right cos i'm same height and 9st 7lbs and with about the two stone difference thats probs the right kinda stature.
Jen said on 8/Aug/06
She looks pretty tall, about 5'6 - 5'7 i've always thought.
kitty said on 25/Jul/06
in that picture she is way higher than his chin and also she is mid stride where as he is at his tallest extent. id say 5 7 easily
Glenn said on 17/Jul/06
Very accurate.
Anonymous said on 16/Jul/06
I'd put her (barefoot) , at exactly 5'6 1/2". This is the most accurate size

"She isn't much taller than 5'2" reese witherspoon"

Rubbish! She's at least 4-5 inches taller in that picture!

jen said on 1/Jul/06

Saw her too. I thought 5'4'

I am not sure if she is 5'7". She didn't look like it in Pride and Prejudice.
Fan said on 7/May/06
rosamund pike was 2 inches taller than her in Pride & Prejudice so that makes keira 5'6
flems said on 1/May/06
Saw her at an afterhours bar/gallery in London's East End in late November and she was 5' 5" TOPS. I would say more accurately 5' 4". Re: Kelly Ripa - who I saw at The Candy Kitchen in Bridhgehampton, LI three months ago, she is lucky to be 5' 1".
Alex said on 22/Apr/06
I think she's 5'7. Her skinny build may make her appear a bit taller.
me said on 19/Apr/06
you can look and see the girl isn't shorter than 5'6.If you look at people like hilary duff and jessica simpson,rachel bilson who are all like 5'3-5'4 tops) and lindsay lohan and ashlee simpson (who are like maybe 5'5)keira looks taller than all of them.she has a long neck which may make her look taller but to say she is anything shorter than 5'6 is ridiculous.If Alexis Bledel is like 5'6 Keira would have to be 5'6 or if not 5'7.I believe she is 5'7 look at Eva Pigford.Even Keira standing next to Olrando Bloom she is definitely like 5'7 or at least 5'6.
Linda said on 3/Apr/06
ok so if she is supposed to be 5'7 this guy is probably like 6'7 right? This height seems really inaccurate. Click Here

bad shot, different stride paths etc...12 inches is a helluva lot. Top of her head would be few inches under this guys chin if he were this tall?
Anon said on 28/Mar/06
Many of you, not all, are forgetting that female celebrities mostly wear heels in public. So if you're saying that she was a little taller than you in public when you met her (if you're not wearing heels), without heels she would probably be shorter. Just a reminder :)

In Pride & Prejudice, she doesn't appear to be 5'4, but taller. I'd say no shorter than 5'6.
Anonymous said on 6/Mar/06
Sat at the table next to Keira and her boyfriend on Saturday, March 4th at the Ivy in L.A. She was 5'4", not quite at 5'5". Very petite but beautiful with great hair and giant diamond earings.

To Nicole: hey, I really don't think Keira Knightly is 5'5, but if you think Reese Witherspoon is 5'4, and Keira is 3 inches taller, then that's what you're implying. Eveyone knows Reese is 5'2. She even claims it.
A. said on 27/Feb/06
um, yeah. I heard she was 5'4" tops. & alot of places lie about her height. She doesn't seem that tall to me.

Editor Rob
I read this on some forum a while ago with estimates by people who saw her filming p&p, anywhere from 5ft 4-7...
nicole said on 14/Feb/06
i saw her on tv next to reese witherspoon and she towared over her.iv seen witherspoon in real life and she seemed around 5'4. i think 5'7 is pretty acurate
Alex said on 6/Feb/06
She doesn't look under 5'6 at all. I am not sure about 5'7 but its possible but shes not under 5'6. Crazy seeing those 5'4-5'5 claims.
Claire said on 19/Jan/06
no way is keira short or average height! even if she is 5ft6 she is still above average.
Billie said on 16/Jan/06
I saw her on the red carpet and since I am 5'6.5 and she was a little bit taller than me so I think it is about right
Mario said on 9/Jan/06
Anonymous, Clive Owen also wears shoes. Keira looks to me the height that she has gived.
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/06
She looks 5 inches shorter than clive owen, in 4 inch heels. I would say she is 5'5" tops.
Keira said on 4/Jan/06
You're right, I am about 5ft6.
175cm16andgrowing said on 1/Jan/06
Yes, I also think she's at least 5'6.5'' tall, 5'7'' or 5'8'' could be more accurate by now. The girl can still grow, she's 21, right? And she really is not a small actress.
Caitlin said on 31/Dec/05
she is about 3 inches shorter than me when i met her so shes around 5'6.5"
