Krysten Ritter's Height
5ft 9 ¼ (175.9 cm)
American Actress and model known for starring in Jessica Jones and appearing in Breaking Bad and Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. In film she appeared in Confessions of a Shopaholic, What Happens in Vegas and 27 Dresses. On marsinvestigations.net she said "I'm 5'9" barefoot"
. In this convention photo Krysten had close to 1 inch more footwear than me.
When I get dolled up, I’m rocking a heel for sure — and I’m 5’10”! I don’t typically do a platform; I like a good, skinny stiletto that’s not too high. Because if I get too tall, I kind of get Tall Girl Syndrome and start to slouch. As weird as it sounds, I’m more of an introvert, so when I get too tall I feel like, ahhh, everyone’s looking at me!
-- 2017, Racked.com
When I’d show up in person, they’d be like, “Oh my God, you’re much taller than we thought.” They think it’s because I’m petite. It reads as a normal-size person. I mean, I think I’m normal size, but everyone is always like, “Oh my God, you’re so tall. What are you, six feet?” I’m five-foot-nine. Relax, everyone. All the other actresses are so little that they get to wear heels. I can’t wear heels on set because the set is too small. If they put me in heels, you’d be able to see lighting in the shot. When I met my boyfriend he knew me only from watching me on Breaking Bad. I was wearing heels when I met him, and he was like, “Oh, wow. You’re really tall.”

Not a height related comment: Perfect casting choice for Jessica Jones.

Had no idea she was this tall!

Hey Sandy Cowell, when is her birthday?
HonestSlovene said on 25/Jun/19
5'9" flat imo.

Unlike JLaw, I can buy Krysten Ritter's 5'9 height claim.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jun/19
Krysten, with her raven hair, looks a convincing 5ft9.25 at her lowest time of day at that! She is a tall girl. 🌌

It would be great if there was a height chart provided!
there is one on youtube, which is where I have been putting height charts recently, click here
Frost said on 21/Jun/19
She does look quite tall here. 5'9 1/4" is very much the right listing.
said on 21/Jun/19
Yeah, I may have overestimated her hair by a bit... I can buy her being somewhere around 5'10 here (with her footwear advantage), so somewhere in 175-6 range is quite believable for her.
9.25 certainly looked in person closer to what she'd measure than a flat 5ft 9.
said on 20/Jun/19
Rob did she look at least 178cm in person with an inch thicker footwear? Because in your photo she looks like she's 5ft10.5 and maybe she could be measured at 5ft9.5 barefoot
No taller than how casper van dien looked - with almost identical footwear advantages - and he is a measured 5ft 9.25 guy so I'd expect her to measure that.

She looks the height she's listed at, about 176cm is fair.
Tall Sam said on 20/Jun/19
Nice photo, hard to say if she's over it but does look a nice solid 5'9" IMO there.
Johan 185 cm said on 20/Jun/19
Looks 5'10" in the pic and has 1 inch advantage in shoes so 5'9"/5'9 1/4".

Where was this convention?
Bobby 5ft 10 said on 18/Jun/19
Rob, did she look about 5'10 to you?
FE said on 18/Jun/19
Rob, wouldn't she be more like 5'9.5-9.75" considering she looks more like 5'10.5-11" range with shoe advantage?
khaled taban said on 18/Jun/19
I think her upgrade isn't right, she isn't taller than a flat 5'9", 5'9.5" out of bed
Nik said on 18/Jun/19
She is certainly honest with her claim!
said on 18/Jun/19
Unless she's dropping more height, she actually looks more of a weak 5'9 in the photo (considering her footwear advantage, of course)...
From meeting Krysten that day, I thought she looked (ignoring footwear) a solid 5ft 10 range. With close to 1 inch footwear difference, I would expect if measured, she'd be around 176cm
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/May/19
I don't think she could ever hit 5'10.Just 5'9.75" out of bed maybe and settled down at 5'9.
said on 12/Mar/19
Rob could she be 6ft2 in these big heels?
6ft 1.5-1.75 range
said on 18/Feb/19
Rob, who would you bet on being taller: Stana Katic or Krysten Ritter? They both very solid 5'9ners.
Both could be argued strong 5ft 9, but I have never seen Katic. Beside Fillion on Castle though, I could say 176cm might be possible.
Bobby 178cm said on 10/Feb/19
It's funny how she was basically Matt's height on The Defenders, but damn, she's hotter than I thought she was. Maybe 5'9.5 is closer in reality to her. Although, Charlie did seem a 180cm guy on The Defenders.
Nik said on 1/Jan/19
It's interesting that she once rounded down her height!
TheBat said on 13/Nov/18
I can give her 5'9.25" as well.
Peter175 said on 9/Jun/18
Not quite seeing 4 cm between her and Aaron Paul in BB. I'm not sure she is actually more above 5'9 than below it. I think 5'8.75-9 is her height is Paul's current listing is to believed
Nik said on 30/May/18
She can have 5'9.25"!
said on 27/May/18
I see you upgraded her Rob. What did make you give her a strong 5ft9 listing?
I saw her a few times and would estimate she would measure over 5ft 9 flat.
said on 6/Mar/18
Cleary Jane was taller than Jesse on BB.
But honestly looked maybe an inch at most. I thought it was in the 0.5-1 inch range on that show, but jesse does wear bigger sneakers
I saw another quote, which I put at the top in which she upped her claim to 5ft 10. I'm not sure she had that much height on someone like aaron.
said on 5/Dec/17
Yet she's smaller than Aaron Paul
Editor Rob: I think on Breaking Bad, that looked a bit unlikely.
Aza said on 14/Nov/16
Highly delightful looking.....cooooooor blimey!
Fray said on 30/Dec/15
For sure 5'9" and an ex-model. Beautifully proportioned.
Tipper said on 21/Dec/15
Looks right on Jessica Jones..she is indeed 5-9.
said on 15/Dec/15
It's been a long time since I've posted here! What would you say her weight and head size is Rob?
Editor Rob: maybe slight more than average head, but not much. Her figure is quite slim, if she is much over 130-3 range I'd be surprised.
Malte said on 30/Sep/15
5'9"? Wow! I only saw her in "Big Eyes" and never thought she was anywhere near that. I thought she looked 5'6"-5'7" next to Amy Adams but not (almost) 6 inches taller than her.
Sam said on 15/Mar/15
I don't know Emily. It seems like every model sized girl has a small head, regardless of height.
cc said on 27/Jul/14
whoa, didnt know she was this tall. from breaking bad, i thought she was a little taller than aaron paul, i assumed maybe 5'7.5 max or so. i did notice on the show she wore flats and still seemed a little taller than him, but on shows, camera angles make it difficult to pinpoint height. Saw pics of the two of them too, and i still wouldve guessed she was 5'7.5 as it seemed that way with her in heels next to aaron paul. I dont find her particularly attractive though, but nice body. well, either way, i agree usually with what is listed on this site, so 5'9 it is.
Sam said on 3/Jul/14
Mainly know her from Breaking Bad and had no idea she was this tall...not a whole lot of even standing shots with her and Aaron Paul considering almost all her scenes were with him.

Krysten is very tall, at least 5'9"!
kevin said on 27/Nov/13
was on craig ferguson and said shes 5tf 9in
Joel said on 22/Jun/13
I've met her in person, I am 5'9 and we stood eye to eye. 5'9 is correct for her.
Emily said on 1/Apr/13
Another one of those girls with a tiny head for a big height. Is that right?
rob89 said on 25/Feb/13
Looked around the same height as Aaron Paul to me in Breaking Bad, maybe just a hair taller. To be honest i thought she and Aaron were both around 5'6" before i saw their listings, i was quite surprised to say the least. Especially Krysten i didn't think looked particularly tall at all, which a legit 5'9" is supposed to be for a girl. Oh well, i guess it's not always easy to tell unless you meet them in person!
Nadine said on 23/Oct/12
5' 9" is correct... she looks big alright, but let's see her try to bully someone bigger than her, this 6 ft. Nadine.
MS said on 14/Oct/12
I'd say 5'9 sounds right. She looks like a pretty big girl on Dont trust the B in Apt. 23.
Chiara said on 4/Oct/12
I thought she was like 5´11. She has really weird proportions though.
bill said on 31/Jul/12
the same height as 183cm James Van Der Beek in 10cm heels.175cm is right.
Lauren said on 12/May/08
I'm not sure she is so tall...I was a stand-in (someone who stands in her place while they set the lighting to hit her properly) for her in 27 dresses and i'm only 5'2. I also stood next to her on several occasions and I do not recall her towering over me. Could be wrong tho.
