She is 5'4 for sure but in the 355 movie it was funny all the women seemed to be roughly the same size and similar weight. I.e 5'3 to 5'5 and 120 to 130 pounds.

Towers over Elizabeth moss in photos probably in higher heels but has to be at least 5ft 5 barefoot

She's like 5'4", Lupita always looks average height in her movies. She gave off an average impression in 12 years a slave and Black Panther. Lupita is 5'3.75"-5'4" range.

Rob, could you add Black Panther to her credits? I think she's sporting some fairly big heels or boots in that movie but still looks pretty average height and a few inches under Danai Gurira.

Here she's with Kenyan Media Personality Larry Madowo who claims 5'8 and sometimes 5'9
@EditorRob How tall would you say Larry Madowo is?Not accounting for footware...
Editor Rob
had a quick look at him with Paul Kaganga and he may well be near 5ft 9

wow...shes short.
Sam said on 10/Mar/14
Thanks Rob...yeah I highly doubt 5'5". Might pass for a full 5'4". She posed recently with Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson for Non-Stop. She seems a little shorter than Moore, though I don't know the heel situation, since Moore seems only a couple inches shorter than Michelle Dockery. Of course, Lupita is towered by Neeson, a foot difference is possible.

I think you can argue 5ft 3.5-4 range for her more than that 5ft 5 claim

Doesn't really look 5'5". I guessed 5 ft 4. One of the most promising actresses of the moment, look forward to seeing more of her.
