She was born in Sweden to Swedish parents. So the average height there is 5 ft 7 I think for women. A bit like an English or American man saying they're 'only' 5 ft 10 - we know what they mean. Meaning - barely above average, and not tall by Swedish standards.

I'm baffled by her comment "I'm only five-eight"!

I did say 5'7 1/4 but to be honest 5'7 at lowest.

I'm not buying the 5'8" listing. Lot of people here are right. She's more 5'7", even a bit less isn't impossible.

Rob at what height did you ever first list Malin with?
Editor Rob: I can't remember, but if she's changed it wouldn't be much.

5'7 no way even a tap more. If she is 5'8 then alexander skarsgard would be 6'5

5'7. look at her next to Alexander Skarsgard at Battleship premiere.
her heels are pretty high but she only reaches his nose.

Saw her on "Lip Sinc Battle". The height difference between her (wearing wedged sneakers) and LL Cool J is the same as the height difference between Anne Hathaway and LL Cool J, and the same as the height difference between 5'7 Emily Blunt (wearing regular sneakers) and LL Cool J. So Malin is 5'7 max!

I doubt it, Matt! You can see her with Alexander Skarsgard (who isn't even standing at his tallest with that "pose"): Click Here
If anything, she's under 5'8... 5'7.5 at best!

I just met her an hour ago and I would say she is a solid 5 ft 8. I was surprised, I didn't know she was tall. I am a little over 5 ft 9 and she was almost as tall as me

You might want to downgrade her. Met her a couple of years ago, even took a photo with her. She was at least 2 inches shorter than me, while wearing high heel boots (it was winter).
I would say 5'7" max

Both Katherine Heigl and Malin in flats Click Here
Even if we consider their posture, Malin is still more than 1" shorter than Katherine.

She's shorter than 5'7 Sandra Bullock by at least an inch in "The Proposal". Couldn't see their footwear though.

In the heartbreak kid, she is only a few cm taller than ben still who struggles to reache 5 foot 6. 172cm.
said on 13/Jun/14
Rob would Malin be 6 ft 1 in these? Click Here
[Editor Rob: they look very big, she'd certainly be over 6ft flat, nearly 6ft 1 is possible]

Only 5'8"?? 5'8" is tall. She isn't though she's 5'6.5" and no more.
Just said on 15/Dec/13
She is 5'7 at best. There's no way she's 5'8. The height difference between her and Katherine Heigl isn't only a half inch.
Lee said on 6/Jul/13
She's listed as 5'7" elsewhere.
Which is about what she looks like in most films... tall, but not very tall.
Adam said on 31/Mar/13
Got to be pretty close. I watched a clip of her on Craig Ferguson (listed at 6'1.5"), and she looked 1.5" shorter in heels. Tall girl.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 12/Aug/12
Rob, why didnt you change her? The previous listing was much closer to the truth!
mina said on 31/Jul/12
I watched 27 Dresses too.Malin is shorter than Katherine Heigl.No matter how many inches her heel's are,she should still be equal in height/body to Katherine whom is only 5'8.5,174cm.She is definitely not 5'8,173cm.Malin is 5'6.5-5'7
Just said on 26/Jul/12
She was shorter than Katherine Heigl in "27 dresses".
Isabella said on 7/Dec/11
"I'm only five-eight"? That's hardly diminutive for a girl...
HelloGoodbye said on 8/Oct/11
i dunno about this height! she was shorter than sandra in The Proposal.and isn't sandra 5'7 or 5'7 1/2? malin looks more 5'6-5'6.5.

Swift is not 5'11.Check malin next to legit 5'8.5 heigl.
5'8.675859601 said on 7/Sep/11
Don't know Rob, she could be 5'8, she is not towered over by legit 5'11 Taylor Swift. She became a model before an actress, so she might be saying the truth at 5'8.
said on 25/Jun/11
look here with 5`11 taylor swift she`s at list 5`8 Click Here
pat said on 26/Mar/11
Met her in Sweden. About 5'11(180 cm) with really high heels 4-5 inch => 5'6-7. Her little sister were tall though.
Matthew Bartlett said on 23/Apr/09
Met her today in SOuth Africa she is shooting the Bang Bang Club and at 5'10 I am taller than her by a few inches. I would say she is 5'6.5 no taller. Definitely not 5'8 - my girlfriend is 5'8 and Malin Akerman is not as tall as her.
marco said on 28/Mar/09
I just saw a clip of Akerman on Leno from 2007. She walked across the stage wearing 5 maybe 4 inch heals. I paused the video to check. Leno, who's 5'11 greeted her and they were the same height. Dana Carvey, 5'8, who was a guest, was about 3 inches shorter. That would make Malin between 5'6 and 5'7.

I doubt if she is 5'7. Check her out here (fake tour with silk specter):Click Here
The nerds in the video are clearly so much taller than her. She is probably only around 5'4- 5'5.
mf said on 25/Dec/08
She is definitely taller than Stiller.

Sanna said on 20/Jul/08
Go Sweden when I grow up I whant to be an actress like her.
Kendra said on 26/May/08
yeah 5'8-5'8 1/2
Robin said on 31/Jan/08
ya, i'd say shes around 5'8.
Lmeister said on 8/Jan/08
I would have given 5ft8 - 5ft8.5 to her. She looks bit taller than Ben Stiller and is wearing flatter shoes than him.
Chris said on 7/Jan/08
About right I'd say. She's a similar height to Ben Stiller.
