I can't believe she's this short 😂. A lot of those actors must be shorter than they're listed.

Kerry speaks beautiful German.

Were things ready that bad for black people in the late 1850’s? Huh! The nicest person I met last year - in hospital - was a black girl.

I went to college in the DC area back in the 90s and saw Kerry Washington around GWU's campus a few times back then for a couple of club events. She was about average height though she seemed slightly taller because she was thin (though not quite as much as now), had great posture and was gorgeous with a high energy presence. I would've guessed about 5'5" or 5'6" but this probably about right without shoes.

she looks extremely small on scandal especially with those 6 inch platform heels on, she is very petite, i always thought she was 4'11-5'0! she must weight around 105lbs!

I don't believe she would, a bit under it.

Kerry sure has her head screwed on! It's so commonplace to fiddle and of course it's going to look suspicious, and get rumbled, though I can think of worse 'crimes'!
I never watched 'Scandal', but I saw Kerry in 'Django Unchained' and she did look small! My favourite role of hers was as Brittany Murphy's girlfriend in the film 'The Dead Girl'. Her conversation with the missing girl's Mum is utterly hilarious, trust me!

She gives me no reason to doubt her height. She looks pretty average height to me.

Rob can you add The Last King of Scotland and as Shonda Rhimes in the ABC series Scandal, as well? She's smoking hot.

She looks shorter than 5'4". I wouldn't be surprised if she's 5'2" and "rounding up" to 5'4", as so many celebrities do. She's always wearing massive heels, and a woman who is truly 5'4" would look taller than that in such high heels.

I don't think she would be considered "short", as she is, I think an average height American woman... maybe give or take a inch :-) Like saying 5'9" man is short, actually more of a average American.

I thought she was 5'3 based on her proportions. She probably is considering celebs fudge their height a little.

I've met her in person couldn't get a picture though she was waring ugg style boots she seemed 5'3'' in person, shorter then you would expect. Oh I'm 5' 9.5'' by the way.

Taraji P. Henson is 5f4 and looks 2 inches taller than Kerry. Both were wearing high heels. Seems like Kerry is only 5f2. Click Here

5-4 or not she is GORGEOUS :)
RT said on 26/Feb/11
5'5" min in height. No way is she 5'4". I met her in person with my girlfriend who is exactly 5'4" and wears the same heels as Kerry. Kerry was at least 1 inch taller than her. I'm 5'5 , short for a guy, and Kerry was at least 3-4 inches over me, wearing heels.

She looks to be a legit 5f2... not the Eva Longoria, Gerry Halliwell or Paula Abdule 5f2 either lol Now those ladies look 4f11 or less!

i must agree she doesn't look 5'4 i'll say 5'2 1/2 or 5'3

That's a funny quote because in real life she's about 5'3'!!!
