I just found 170cm for Kirsten while I was hunting around to find out how old she was when she starred as Claudia in 'Interview With The Vampire'. She was 12, but looked tiny! I'm surprised that Kirsten grew up to reach the dizzy heights of 5ft5.5 or so.
Urgh! Kirsten has just cut the throat of the bullying, boorish Tom Cruise - but he's come back stomach-churningly disgusting, so she resorts to a method befitting of someone with hair the colour of flames....
The average for Kirsten is nearly 5ft6.5, but how true or otherwise that is won't be found out by watching her as a small 12-year-old, small being the operative word!
5ft5.75 this time round.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Mar/20
Kirsten played Marie Antoinette in the film of the same name.
There are no definite figures as to how tall Marie was, but she was anything from 5ft2.5 to 5ft6, so Kirsten did fit the bill, with her 5ft5.5. 👸

@ Maggie Sammoud - How tall are you?
Rob thinks that Kirsten Dunst and Diane Kruger are both 5’5.5”!

Vi prego si vede chiaramente ed è fin troppo evidente che Kirsten è poco più alta di 1,7 m.
IO ho visto lei dipersona ed è la verità con le mie due sorelle.( ho anche un fratello che era uscito co la sua ragazza , io sono la terza di 5 figli.
Mia sorella maggiore di 26 anni è alta 1,71 m.
IO ho 24 anni e sono alta 1,8 m
Mia sorella minore di 20 anni è alta 1,73 m
L'ultima ha 19 anni ed è alta quanto me.(1,8 m)
Abbiamo chiacchierato un po' con Kirsten ci siamo fatte fare un autografo e ho visto chiaramente che Kirsten è alta come la mia quarta sorella cioè Kirsten è alta 1,73 cm ed è "vero"
Maggie Sammoud said on 17/Nov/19
I saw her in Germany four months ago.
She's similar my sister.
My sister Is 174/175
Kirsten Is 173/174.
Kirsten Is shorter 1 cm than Diane Kruger . Diane Is 174/175
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Apr/19
🎂🌸🎁 Happy Birthday Kirsten! 🎁🌸🎂
Have a lovely day, honey-child!
Is it possible that the little ringletted girl from 'Interview with the
Vampire' turns 37 today? Then she went on to star as the 'Let Them Eat Cake' Queen, Marie Antoinette, in the film by the same name, who was executed in 1793 after her 18 year reign 1774-92, for Treason at the height of the French revolution.
I have yet to see the film, but I intend to....
I have seen plenty of others though!
This smashing little actress gets all the fives - 5ft5.5 - as her Birthday Guess.

Not sure why people are saying she was taller than Denise Richards in drop dead gorgeous they are both barefoot and look exactly the same height only when Kirsten stands on tiptoes when saying "bring it on" does she look a little taller. Both are at the right listing here
Jtm said on 20/Dec/18
if stewart is 5'3.5 then she needs a serious downgrade.
Bobby said on 19/Dec/18
Oh, Kirsten Dunst, I almost didn't recognize her. Maguire was definitely taller than her, but not by much.
PS: You might wanna add a hyphen in Spider-Man, Rob. That's the grammatical spelling of the character since he is often confused with Superman due to the similar spelling.
said on 19/Jan/18
In those photos of her with Kristen Stewart, you can clearly see Kirsten has higher heels. Click Here Click Here
With lower heels, they look much closer Click Here
Also Rob, between her and Aj Cook, who is taller?
I read somewhere that Kirsten's weight in The Virgin Suicides was 116 lbs, is that right?
That weight during that time sounds believable, she was quite slender, still is.

Rob why do I get the impression that Kirsten is not short? She isn't 5 foot 8, but for some reason that's the impression I get when I look at her. Also Rob, can you answer this? What is the average height for a female in the US? I read in stats that it is 5 ft 4. But didn't you say average height on celebheights is 5 ft 5 or taller? Why is there a difference? Do you consider Kirsten a little taller than average? Doesn't she look kinda tall in the heels above? How tall would you say that makes her?
Editor Rob: maybe 5ft 9 in those heels
the current peak average is 5ft 5 and 1/4 range for females, there are roughly an equal amount of males/females this moment, I'm trying to keep it quite balanced that way.
Dunst has nice proportions, a slim look that can give off an impression of being near 5ft 7.
Intevel said on 16/Dec/17
Rob how tall is Kirsten in the heels in the picture?
Cacau said on 11/Dec/17
She's using 10 cm heels and look at least 2 inchs lower than Jake Gyllenhaal.

google lists her 5'7 pretty ridiculous.
5'11.25 at noon. said on 23/Jul/17
Google must be using morningheight on everyone 🤔miss dunst is in the 5'5 to 5'6 range.
Josh Davis said on 9/Jul/17
Slightly above average height
anonheight said on 23/Jun/17
She looks to be 5'7; IMDB has her listed as 5'6. Google says 5'7. I'd say the taller side of 5'6.
said on 20/Jun/17
I'm sure I visited this place before
she was height 164
Why now is its height 166 ????
Editor Rob: I don't think I ever listed her less than in the 5ft 5-6 range.
Jay said on 11/Jun/17
People need to stop looking at Spider-Man movies or any movie scene, to judge the height of a person. They use tricks all the time. I think Rob has her spot on height.
mike said on 3/Jun/16
She looked 5'3/5'4 next to Tobey Mcguire in Spiderman, i don't think she's anywhere over 163cm.
said on 29/Apr/16
If Kirsten is only 5 ft. 5 1/2", how do you explain this picture of her with Kristen Stewart? Click Here
They're both in heels, but Kirsten is considerably taller than her—looks like more than 1.5 inches to me.
stewart at times can look barely even 5ft 4, there was some shots Of her looking nearer
...but there could be 2 inches between them.

What's wrong with Google? Way off! Google says she is 170cm. SMH.

Possible 5'5 even Rob?

She looks 5' 5" so 5' 5.5" makes sense.

Shes only marginally shorter than Kate hudson. 166cm at least

5 foot 5 and a half.
Cliff said on 8/Sep/12
She's at least 5ft6. She enjoys a comfortable advnatage over Kristen stewart and stands about as tall as Ellen.
said on 4/Sep/12
If Maguire is the 5'7.75 listed here, Kirsten is looking closer to 5'4 here, even with his footwear advantage.
Stephanie said on 19/Jan/12
I'd say she's 5' 6" to 5' 7".
C-Dawg said on 26/Dec/11
I just saw the rerun of Ellen. Ellen had canvas shoes on when Kirsten was barefoot, and Ellen had maybe an inch on her. I think Kirsten is 5'7".
said on 10/Dec/11
Dunst always has on shoes that put her almost on her tippy-toes and these at the bottom are typical. I think Tobey is 2 inches taller than her.
Rob, how many inches would these shoes add to Kirsten's height?
[Editor Rob: if I seen a female in those heels I'd say they gave around 3-inch actual height. There's always a range with heels because some can give an illusion of less/more and different size feet can add a little while smaller feet might not get as much as a bigger foot. ]
mcfan said on 20/Nov/11
She takes off her heels. Ellen is only 1.25-1.5 inches taller. I'd say either Kirsten is 5'6 or Ellen is only 5'6.5.
said on 14/Nov/11
In heels with Ellen Degeneres (in flats) = Kristen is a little taller maybe 1-2"

heres the thing, if the tip of someone's head is on the height of someones ear or eyebrow, then he/she is ROUGHLY 2inches(5cm) shorter than the other person
What?That's so not true!
It means that s/he is AT LEAST 4 inches(10cm) shorter than the other person.
Please, Rob, correct me if I am wrong.
mcfan said on 22/Jul/11
Charlotte Gainsbourg, who is 5'7.5, looks over 2 inches taller than Dunst.
bnwy said on 13/Jul/11
I'm watching Drop Dead Gorgeous (totally under-rated movie by the way) right now and comparing Dunst with Denise Richards. In most scenes, Kirsten's about an inch taller than Denise (and yet they're both listed as 5'5.5). I think Kirsten's about 5'6 and Denise is 5'5. That's my two cents.
Hullywood said on 9/Jul/11
About 1.61m. There are some scences in Spiderman, who look Tobey Meguire like a tall man. Like 3-4 Inches taller.
mcfan said on 26/Mar/11
Kirsten Dunst looks at least 2 inches taller than Megan Fox. I'm slightly skeptical of Megan's 5'4 claim. My guess Megan is 5'3 or no taller than 5'3.5. Amanda Seyfried is a genuine 5'2, but I only see a little more than an inch between them.
leonari said on 1/Feb/11
Tobey is Not 174 cm. Thats bull****. Even Robs estimate is 1 or 2 cm too high. Dunst is 5'5. Please Tell me where Maguire looks 174. Please.
leonari said on 1/Feb/11
Tobey was never 174 cm. Never.
Bomberman said on 6/Jan/11
Have to agree she looks 5'5 and VERY thin
KC said on 25/Dec/10
I worked with her and she is around 5'4 ish
mcfan said on 13/Dec/10
Kirsten is either the tallest 5'4 person I've ever seen or she's a genuine 5'5.5er that likes to wear big, tippy-toe heels.
kiki said on 13/Dec/10
in my opinion 5'4
Mr. R said on 2/Dec/10
I will be going to a screening of her new movie called "All Good Things" on Monday, Dec. 13. Kirsten will be there, so I will do what I can to get a pic.
Lord Chief Justice Victor said on 31/Oct/10
heres the thing, if the tip of someone's head is on the height of someones ear or eyebrow, then he/she is ROUGHLY 2inches(5cm) shorter than the other person...so yeah, if u compare kirsten dunst wif Tobey maguire in spiderman trilogy, it appears that kirsten is ROUGHLY 2inches shorter than 5'7barefoot Tobey...i'd say Dunst stands AT LEAST 5'5 n at most 5'6...as for Tobey i'd say he stands at least at 5'7 n at most at 5'8..but i think tobey is a solid 5'7 but then somehow recently i noticed hes promoted to 5'8....n yeah Dunst doesnt solidly stand at 5'7...she is either 5'5 or 5'6, period
said on 8/Jun/09
here's a pic of megan and simon pegg (who is also slouching a bit)... simon is listed as 5'9 and, without heels, it looks like megan is about 5-6 inches shorter. I think megan is 5'3-5'4.Click Here
mcfan said on 6/Apr/09
I think Tobey wears lifts at times. His footwear looks questionable to me in some photos.
Jenny said on 27/Mar/09
Come on, she can't be shorter than 5'5". She looks at least 5'5.5" to me.This hight is spot on.
Diane said on 6/Mar/09
I've worked with Kirsten and she's smaller than me, I'm 5'6
said on 26/Feb/09
Look at these 2 pics of Kirsten and Tobey. I don't think Kirsten is really 5'5 5'3-5'4 definitely. Look at the 4 inch heels she is wearing in the second picture. If Tobey is listed here at 5'7 than that would bring Kirsten to 5'3 or 5'4.Click HereClick Here
mcfan said on 12/Feb/09
They're wearing similar footwear. I only used that particular photo from a set because they were more in line with one another.
Debbie said on 7/Feb/09
Those picture aren't a really good way to tell. You can't see the footwear they are all wearing.

Does look about a half-inch shorter than Kate Hudson who is listed as 5'6:Click Here
said on 2/Jan/09
here's a photo of her with Bryce Dallas Howard(who is an alleged 5'7-5'8") - Click Here
Both appear to be in heels, but Howard is absolutely towering over her. I can't figure out her height, in some photos Dunst appears to ba around 5'7" (I saw a photo of her with 5'10" Laura Dern and she was barely shorter), and then in other photos like that one, she looks about 4 + inches shorter than Bryce Dallas Howard (who is roughly 5 foot 8). Must be the variation of shoes and high heels.
leonari said on 26/Dec/08
she is not 5'6". Tobey is taller and is max 5'7". He is 4 cm taller than her so Robs listing is once again accurate.
Anonymous said on 24/Dec/08
She is 5"5 maybe 5"6 it is very obvious, she is absolutely not 5"4 or 5"7
anonymous said on 21/Oct/08
I would say she's 5 foot 5max because she is nearly taller than tobey mcguire in spiderman.

I think 5-5ish for women is a weird height just like 5-10ish for men. 5-10ish men tend to be inconclusive and it makes sense that the same would be true of 5-5ish women.
What is he talking about?????
Debbie said on 24/Sep/08
Hela, that is a good picture BUT you can't see if she is wearing heels or not, which she probably is. She stills looks a lot shorter than Maria. Kirsten looks great though.
Kim said on 24/Sep/08
she's 5'7'' and 36C/24/35, weight about 120lb, but i guess less.

A short person would look freakishly small next to Maria, but Kirsten doesn't.

I saw her having lunch with Jake Gylenhaal a few years ago, and this is pretty close.
Samiam said on 27/Jul/08
Saw her while taking a hit in my car and she walked by. I must have scared the **** out of her, she must have thought I was papparazi or something cuz she jumped back when she noticed me looking at her. I just happened to be in the neighborhood just chilling out and was stunned as she was to see her.
She looked around 5'6 to 5'8 to me. Sort of lanky, long girl.
Very attractive looking girl. Way better in real life than in film or pics.
Lenad said on 16/Jun/08
Well Debbie If you look at other pictures and videos you'll see she looks as tall as Tobey in heels if not taller. Also she looked a solid 5'4 in Wimbledon and Elizabethtown but in the Spiderman movies Dunst looked 5'7. Lifts? I think 5'5.5 barefoot makes most sense.
Debbie said on 2/Jun/08
Lenad, I was only going by the picture posted by Runt.
Aimie said on 30/May/08
I would say 5'4'' as well. She is very slender and proportionate. Her legs are long, and her head is not huge. That's why she gives the impression of looking taller. Most of her costars are taller though, even the ones considered short.
Debbie said on 26/May/08
It seems pretty clear in runt's photo of Kirsten and Tobey who is 5'8. Kirsten is wearing what seems to be about 3' heeled boots and she is still shorter than Tobey. She is very thin and most of the time wears heels. She very well may be 5'2-5'3. She is very beautiful:)
runt said on 20/May/08
Hey adelaida, are you talking about file 6 and file 8?
They are both wearing flats and they are the same height. KD should be downgraded to 5-4.5 or Sophia should be upgraded to 5-5.5. But considering that Glenn met Sophia and hasn't disputed Rob's 5-4.5, they should downgrade KD.

I've seen her listed several places as 5'7'', but this height sounds more correct.
Rose said on 13/Mar/08
Jennie, she's probably wearing heels, which makes her look that tall. I think 5'51/2 is right. She doesn't look too tall.
jennie said on 1/Mar/08
she has to be 5'7 because tobey maguire is 5'8 and she appeared only an inch shorter than him in the spiderman movies. i'm positive. several years ago she may have been 5'5 but now she probably grew those 2 inches taller because as i said she appears just an inch shorter than tobey in the spidey flicks.

from reading all this i would guess 5'4" 163cm

Here she is in those flat gladiator sandals. I'd take an inch or two off of Maguire with those sneakers. She is probably two inches shorter.
[Editor Rob: you can't really say 'or two', because that type of trainer is a typical 1 inch. 2 inch trainers are so huge that I've yet to encounter a pair of them!]
Anonymous said on 5/May/07
On the new Spiderman promo pics when Kirsten was wearing those flat gladiator sandals, she was standing next to Tobey Maguire who is around 5'8" and she looked at least 3 inches shorter than he was. I'd say she's around 5'5" - 5'6"

If Maguire is 5'8 she can't be more than 5'4,5,the heels are very high.I think she's no more than 5'4:

There are clips in Elizabethtown where she does look around 5 inches shorter than Orlando Bloom. However, there is also a very good shot of both on even ground and the height difference is clearly 3 inches max. She is in flats. It's funny because the shot is directly after a scene where he looks much taller than her.

that is weird i always thought that she is about 5.8 or something because she looks so tall on pictures, i am 5.6 and now i found out that i am taller than her. so i can say pictures make people seem much taller than they really are!

She was on TRL and shes wearing heels next to Jason Schwartzmen who is either 5.5 or 5.6 and she is like the same height as him in heels so shes either like 5.4 or something.

I'd say 5'5" on the dot. And I think in the "Spiderman" movies, she's most of the time wearing high heels which maker her look about 5'7"ish. So that would explain her looking almost as tall as the 5'8" Maguire.
J-Dog said on 20/Jun/06
Yeah I have to agree she seems more closer to 5'4.5" than 5'6.5". As with many people who have seen her in NYC my brother had and commented on her being smaller than expected even for a female.
RentGirl said on 19/Jun/06
A while ago People magazine had her at 5'5.
[Editor Rob: you know, I'm starting to think that the glamour magazine may have gotten a direct quote, sometimes interviewers will do that, ask a few details to 'beef up' the article...5ft 5.5, possible]
said on 18/Jun/06
Kirsten Dunst needs SEVERE revising. Here she is beside (some I can verify is) 5'5 and a half Jason Schwartzman and 5'4 Sofia Coppola. Take away half an inch for Jason's footwear, and about an inch for Sofia's -- with the fact that Kirsten is practically at her barefoot height in this one:Click Here
Kirsten Dunst is a solid 5'4. Nothing more, nothing less. But a far cry from 5'6.

By the way, when a magazine says any height, you can bet 99% that it is a two inch exeggeration. If it's not a two inch exeggeration, it's a one inch. I have worked with enough magazines to know. You say the height that an actress is WITH HEELS ON, not her real height. And you adjust men's heights to validate their most recent co-actresses height. Like Gwyenth Paltrow is 5'7", not 5'9". And Juse Law is 5'9", not 5'11". That's just the way the industry keeps good piints with celebs (keeps them coming back to support sales of the magazines). I co-authored a piece in Glamour, on Kate Bosworth. She is about 5'3.5" and we say 5'6". Etc. Some stars are cool about it an honest, like Jude Law, who told US his real height of 5'9". That's a rare case of height honesty in this industry.
said on 25/Mar/06
Whatever, she's an inch smaller than Susan Sarandon, who is three inches shorter than Billy Joe Armstrong. Kirsten can't be pegged at more than 5'4".
TJ said on 24/Feb/06
To further confuse everyone
John R said on 22/Feb/06
Something is a bit off. In the movie "elizabethtown", Bloom looks much taller than Dunst, so i'm guessing either she is shorter than you mention here or Bloom is taller than the 5´10.5´´ you guys claim.

Julia Stiles seems almost the same height as Julia Roberts...maybe just under so I don't think she could be 5'9. More like 5'8 or just under. She's very skinny with a large head.
Greg said on 12/Feb/06
mcfan, you're correct. on stiles' page, there is another link to a photo of dunst and her, and julia towers over her. something does not jive here, either stiles is a lot taller than 5'7 or dunst is shorter than 5'5. i would lean towards stiles being taller, maybe close to 5'9. she looks tall in a lot of her movies

I have found proof that kirsten is not as tall as she has made out. in this photo http://www.kirsten-dunst.org/kirstenimages/displayimage.php?album=16&pos=35 kirsten is the same height as michelle williams (5'4")

Is this Kirsten Dunst (wearing high-heeled boots) in the middle? She looks small compared to Julia Stiles.
Kelsey said on 19/Jan/06
oh my god how can people say she is 5'4 or 5'6, she is clearly 5'7.

Ok, in the pic with Orlando, she's a bit farther down the slope, so when you take that into account, she actually reaches up to his eyebrows. I'm the same height as him, and my eyebrows are at 168 cm above ground. Clearly, the same should be true for him, give or take 1 cm.
In the pic with Sigourney, there are far too many possible errors making it almost useless. They both have bad postures, we have no knowledge of Sigourney's heels, and they're not at the same distance from the camera, and with a relatively wide-angled lens, even a couple of inches wrong makes a huge difference.
The pic with Tobey Maguire is also less than useful. She's not standing tall, and she's also behind him, with her upper body bent slightly forward, and on top of that, she's in the middle of a stride, with heeled boots...
If you measure her and Tobey, you'll find that her height, in that picture, is only 88% of Tobey's 173 cm, which would make her only 152 cm, or right at 5'. Clearly not plausible.
Now, after a bit of googling, I found this excellent picture.
Pieces of furniture tend to be made to very specific and even sizes, and not just a random 37.4 mm, or 2.06 inches or something like that.
The bed legs are half the thickness of the horizontal "beam" going between the two legs. My guess is they're either two and one inches, respectively, or 5 and 2.5 cm. If we decide to go with the former, that makes the wooden box-like table exactly 18 in wide and tall.
If Kirsten had been standing right next to the table, and measured the size in the image that I measured, she would've been 169 cm. She's very slightly farther back though, but she's also slouching a bit, so my word is she's actually 169 cm. That's 5'6.5". But 5'6" is probably equally accurate, given the margin of error using a method like this. She's not likely to be shorter than that, though, and the iMDb reported height of 170 cm could actually be true as well, especially in the morning!

Here's another photo showing Dunst looking not so tall:
It's probably not the best photo in the world and we can't see the footwear. Maybe Dunst took off her heels, but I still say she's only 5'5.5 at the most.

From gawker sightings, "saw Kirsten Dunst, looking surprisingly tall and pretty"
glow said on 14/Dec/05
That pic Mcfan has shown of her and Sigourney Weaver pretty much sums it up... at 5'6, if 5'11" Weaver was standing straight, Kirsten should come up to just below her ear... and yet Weaver is clearly slouching a great deal in that shot (practically bending over in fact) and Kirsten barely comes up to her ear even when Weaver's slouching!

How tall is Sigourney Weaver? Kirsten looks quite small here. She also looks small here with Maguire which I posted before.link

5'5.5, Sharapova TOWERS over her. Sharapova WAS like 6' at the time of the Wimbledon premiere (she grew some more), and there's a lot more than 5 inch difference.
What said on 2/Nov/05
Kirstin Dunst doesn't ever appear to more than 5'4" or 5". There is just no way that she is 5'6" when she is so much shorter than 5'8" Maggie Gyllenhaal. She is exaggerating by exactly two inches I think. 5 ft 4.5 in. Again, I have met her and no one believes sightings, but I am 5'8" and she was absolutely SHORT to me. Not almost 5'7".
mcfan said on 4/Oct/05
Great job, glow! I hadn't seen too many of her in regular shoes. Here she is wearing sandles. She's certainly not 5'6 or 5'7. She was slightly over 2 inches shorter than Julia Stiles with regular shoes. I've seen her with heels looking only an inch shorter than Stiles but she loves those big heels. If Orlando Bloom is 5'10-11, she isn't 5'6. I would really like to see how truly tall Tobey Maguire is because I know Robert Downey jr was slightly taller than him and the editor was sure Downey was exactly 5'8.
glow said on 4/Oct/05
I'm not sure if anyone has seen this photo, but here's a full-length shot of Kirsten and Orlando in their new movie Elizabethtown. http://imdb.com/gallery/ss/0368709/Ss/0368709/084_E-C1160-06A.jpg?path=gallery&path_key=0368709
I'm not sure whether it's his shoes or her posture but even the 5'6' claim seems to be a bit of a stretch!
mcfan said on 3/Oct/05
Anonymous, not a good photo of Dunst's height. She often wears 3-4inch heels. Here is a good illustration of her height next to 5'7 Willem Dafoe and 5-7.5 Maguire. When you zoom in, it's obvious she's wearing 3 inch heels. If dafoe is 5'8 with his shoes then she's at the most 5'5.5. Even in her 3 inch heels shoes he's still an inch taller than her. That UK magazine which stated her height at 5'5.5 is probably the most accurate. How is Maguire still that much taller than her when he is presumably wearing 1.25 inches of heel and is not even 5'8?

In all of these pictures, she's standing right next to Tobey Maguire and is in heels. But she is noticeably taller. She is probably 5'6.5- 5'7 in flat feet and 5'9-5'9.5 in heels.linklinklink

She looks taller than Orlando here.

I'm guessing close to 5'7. She is very thin and always slouches, so it's really hard to tell.
mcfan said on 28/Sep/05
What -- can you back up your claim with photos? I agree that Dunst is not 5'6 as listed here, but I thought the Maguire photos were due to lifts rather than angles. However, if it isn't due to angles or lifts, then she probably is 5'4.5. That one photo I supplied on July 30th where Maguire and Dunst are both walking looks so suspicious to me. Even if you gave her the benefit of the doubt, you just don't get close to 5'6 unless Maguire is somehow wearing 2 inch lifts. She is always wearing heels.
What said on 27/Sep/05
I would normally not share this but Kirsten Dunst hangs out regularly with my friend in LA. I have been to breakfast with her and Maggie Gyllenhaal. I thought it was funny when I saw her listed at 5'6". She is 5'4" or 5'4"3/4. Maggie is the one who was 5'6.5". I am just under 5'8" (about 5.7 3/4") and it was clear that both were shorter as we were all wearing flat Roman Sandals. They are both beautiful and cool.

McFan: The best picture possible to show the height difference between Denise and Kirsten would be from Drop Dead Goregous, where they are fighting each other in the dressing room. In that scene, both are barefooted, and Kirsten gets right into Denise's face. While the two are staring each other each other off, you can see that Dunst is clearly taller (a half inch may be fair). Unfortunately, I can't find a picture from that scene. Anybody else have any luck?
mcfan said on 21/Sep/05
I think the photos prove Dunst is a half-inch taller than Denise Richards as Denise has a bent knee in the one photo and is leaning in the other. The best one is the last one where they are together. I think Denise Richards is very close to 5'5 but she's also a half-inch shorter than Neve Campbell. I would bet you Neve Campbell and Dunst are the same height at 5'5.5.

mcfan said on 20/Sep/05
I take back my assessment of Dunst's height. She does look 5'5.5 as UK Glamour states. The Maguire photos must be showing Tobey in lifts because he is really only 5'7.5-5'8.
Jay Hernandez is likely about Maguire's height. In Crazy/Beautiful he was roughly 2.5-2.75 inches taller than Dunst when they were in sneakers. Here is a photo giving a fairly good illustration of their heights. http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0250224/Ss/0250224/img014b.jpg?path=gallery&path_key=0250224
mcfan said on 16/Sep/05
I'm surprised with all of the comments about Dunst's height that her height is still at 5'6. She's clearly not that tall. She's simply too small in too many photographs to be 5'6. She only looks at the most 5'5. She almost always wears heels and sometimes they're very large heels.
CoolJ said on 6/Sep/05
Rob.. I'm thinking Maguire is definitely closer to 5'7" on the button, which would substantiate that magazine's claim of her being 5'5.5"
said on 4/Sep/05
How come every time I look at a photograph with Tobey Maguire he skies over "5'6.5" Kirsten Dunst? Now, Maguire isn't as tall as Robert Downey Jr. He's about a half-inch shorter. If Maguire is 5'7.5-5'8, how can Dunst be 5'6.5? I think she is 5'5.5 with sneakers. I also don't think Denise Richards is shorter than 5'5. In "Wild Things" Neve Campbell was taller than her by an inch.[Editor Rob: in spiderman they done an ok job of making tobey appear taller than he is. Sometimes for over-the-shoulder shots they'd have him on something (a bit like Thomas Jane in the Punisher), or other times simply use the camber of the pavement. I change my mind on this girl every month ;) She goes from 5ft 6 to 5ft 6.5 and back down again...I want to really leave her as 5ft 6 though...but maguire, heck even people might question his 5ft 8 claim]

Anshelm said on 30/Aug/05
After seeing her (on TV) besides Orlando Bloom at the 2005 VMAs I'd say 9–11 cm/c. 4" for Bloom's favor, with Dunst wearing low, maybe 4–5 cm/1½–2" heels.
Too bad Bloom isn't exactly the best choise for comparison – judging from this site's comments he should be somewhere between 177 cm/5'9½" and 180 cm/5'11".
So, based on these observations, the 166 cm/5'5½" mentioned above sounds plausable.

According to this site, Julia Stiles is 5'7.75 but I also heard she is really 5'7. Let's say Stiles is almost 5'8...why is Dunst roughly 3 inches shorter than her? Dunst cannot be 5'6 in this photograph and consistent with the photograph I posted with Maguire on July 30th, I would say she cannot be taller than 5'4.5.
[Editor Rob: to me she doesn't look 3 inches shorter. Maybe with Julia's head tilted slightly up and kirsten's at normalish it might seem that way? Yes, there's a quote on Julia's page which was fairly recent and she didn't correct the guy saying '5ft 7'...]

I don't know Rob.. that might be a phantom line.. I'm thinking more like 5'7 7/8" ;) - I'd be willing to bet you have 1-2cm on Mr. Maguire... considering you aren't standing on a book or a few magazines.

That doesnt stop us from knocking Tobey down a half-inch does it ;).
In General Height.. you looked to be 5'7.5" too.. and you rounded up as well ;) Ha ha.
[Editor Rob: lol, how dare you challenge my 5ft 8 ;) Now I feel what Tom Cruise is like ;)
See, you believed the first image showed me as less than 5ft 8 even though the other 2 images showed me looking above 5ft 8.
I'll explain again - in the first shot I was holding the camera above
the top of my head and losing a few mm by holding the camera in front and above my head.
But I redid the shot just for you as accurate as possible. This time the camera was on a tripod on a desk and the central point of the lense is pointing at the 5ft 8 mark (not at a 6ft+ mark), so the middle of the lense is pointing at 5ft 8 from a distance of about 5 foot away. Camera is horizontal.
The tape measure is affixed to the cupboard and the ground is level. I'm barefoot and standing in a measurable stance right beside the wall.
The red line in the image below indicates 68 inches, or 5ft 8. Image was taken 7.30pm ;)The Measurement
Now tobey Maguire...he may well match up exactly like me ;)
CoolJ said on 24/Aug/05
5'5 1/2"?? I think that might make Maguire officially smaller than 5'8
[Editor Rob: if you're 5ft 7.5 would you say that or just round it up? In Wonder Boys he really did look slightly shorter than the 5ft 8 claim. But then Katie Holmes didn't look 5ft 9 in that film to me...]

Hmm, that Glamour quote was from 2002. Sometimes in magazines the interviewer might ask as a sidenote the actor/actress height and use the answer to describe her in such a way, i.e. 'Slender 5ft 5.5 beauty'. So, she might have actually told the interviewer this as her height...

Great work, McFan! I commend you on a job well done. This picture is excellent! I almost dont know whether to peg Kirsten down to 5'4'' or Tobey up to 5'10'' haha!!! Wow...I do agree with McFan and almost everyone here that Kirsten is definitely not 5'7''...more like 5'5.5'' absolute max. However, not only does this pic solidify my idea that Dunst is shorter; but it almost makes me want to think that Maguire is taller...almost...as for Dunst's distance from the camera, she looks only to be half a stride behind Maguire which is a negligable distance, and is not enough to result in an illusion of her being 4+ inches shorter than Maguire...for the sake of argument, I'll give her an extra 2 inches due her position in the pic and a slight stoop in her posture (which by the way is canceled out by the fact that she is in the highest point in her stride), and she is still about 2 inches shorter than the questionably 5'8'' Maguire, even with large heels. 5'6'' might even be too high, Rob...but at least it's a start.
said on 30/Jul/05
She looks more like 5'4 to me. There's a picture of her and Maguire walking together on a sidewalk and he towers over her. She's even wearing heels. Now I have seen photos where she's look much taller but she's got to be wearing heels. I'm not basing this on one photograph with Maguire. He's at least 3 inches taller than her in all the photographs I've seen...might be as much as 4.5 inches taller than her. Maybe she's grown. Take a look at this photo and notice her heels: link[Editor Rob: I'd been meaning to come back to this girl...whilst that picture is not great because he's standing a bit closer and dunst is in mid stride I do agree that this girl is not 170cm.]

If she's 5'7" then why did Oprah refer to her as "short" on her show?
[Editor Rob: Yes, Dunst is a puzzling one. Sometimes she looks 5ft 7, a lot of times you'd think she's 5ft 6ish. Dafoe is just about the same height as Tobey but I'm unsure on Maguire's footwear...they did use some tricks in Spiderman to make him look pretty tall.]
