She must be starting to shrink as she can look 3 inches shorter than Jennifer Lawrence in some pics
Mister lennon said on 10/Sep/17
More in the 5'4 range.
Nik said on 9/Sep/17
She is a classic 5'6"!
Emma said on 5/Sep/17
She looks 160 next to Jennifer Lawrence.
Marquis said on 14/Apr/17
5'6" does seem right for her.
mister_lennon said on 22/Mar/17
5'5 or 164-165 is possible too for her.
mister_lennon said on 20/Mar/17
i think that she was and she is 5'4. not more. about 163-164.
and in batman retuns,she looked noticiable shorter than Keaton.
Sammy Derrick said on 4/Mar/17
She's really beautiful,I think she's 5'6.After watching her in Batman Returns as Catwoman she was eye to eye with Michael Keaton in most scenes who was about 5'9...It would take standard heels and normal male dress shoes for these to be achieved.

Why is it that everything about this woman is perfect.
shawn said on 23/Sep/16
She can't be 5'6" . Brenda strong made her look like a little kid in "Deep end of the Ocean" No joke Brenda was head and shoulders taller than her.

In the witches of eastwick, she looked shorter than both cher and susan sarandon.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Aug/16
Rob can you add Tequila Sunrise, Dangerous Liaisons, Dark Shadows, The Russia House and The Age of Innocence?
Ilona said on 6/Aug/16
I thought she was still 172cm tall.
carol adams said on 5/Aug/16
Michelle is around 5'3" - watch her in The Witches of Eastwick - she is on par with Susan Sarandon, whom a good friend of mine met (friend is 5"6") and Susan was at least 3 inches shorter, without shoes.

5ft 5 best estimate
jtm said on 1/Nov/15
kim basinger is around 5'6 and she looked taller than pfeiffer did with michael keaton.
mister_lennon said on 30/Oct/15
maybe not so low as 5'3, but i think that she is a strong 5'4, weak 5'5 woman. Because she is very thin she could look taller sometimes, but i dont think that she could be more than 5'4 or 5'5.

You would have to be wearing heels of 5 and half inches to add about 4 inches of height!!
Charlie said on 29/Oct/15
in the movie into the hight She stars opposite Jeff Goldblum who is listen as 6 foot 4 inchesso in shoes he was probably 6 foot 5 in the movie. she comes below his chin by a good 3 inches and was wearing heels in the movie. do the math. average height of a make head is 10 inches. she would be 5 foot 7 in heels in the movie so her height would there for 5 foot 3 inches. Average height for a female. God im smart
white waters said on 8/Aug/15
she looks 5' 5'' to me but always beautiful.
littlesue said on 23/Jun/15
Think he was referring to still a beaut for her age not her height, lol
Clare80 said on 21/Jun/15
What do you mean by still a beautiful lady ? Are women ugly at 5" 6 ?
jackie said on 13/Jun/15
still a beautiful lady. in dark shadows , she was similar in height with Depp with heels on, so i assume the height listed here is more or less accurate.
mister_lennon said on 17/Mar/15
i think that she looks more in the 5'4 range.
deedee said on 16/Mar/15
I always thought she looked much smaller on screen, like 5'3, guess I was wrong.
Realist said on 7/Sep/14
Peak was strong 5'6: 5'6.25, Now more flat 5'6. Good job Rob.
Jack said on 17/Mar/14
Probably lost an inch due to aging, 5'7" peak is possible
Ted said on 7/Jan/14
5'6" does seem right. Good job, Rob.
Silent d said on 31/Oct/12
Matthew is 169cm. 5 foot 6 is safe but i always thought she was 5 foot 7 at least. Nice looking lady. Probably the best looking actress over 50. In her time she was one of the hottest.
Gus said on 17/Nov/11
5'6,5'7,6'4-who cares,back in the day she was fit as..for the record id go with 5'6.5
Tim said on 21/Oct/11
You really have to be a Michelle Pfeiffer pfan to know (like I am). She is at least 5'7. You have to measure from her foot up, full body, when in a movie. Watch LadyHawke. In the dancing scene with Matthew Broderick, she is not wearing shoes, and they are about the same height (he is 5'8). I used to have a picture linked here showing that she is almost as tall as Amanda Bynes standing next to her (both wearing heels). Another picture I used to have here posted by a fan showed that she towered over the other average height women (5'3-5'4). They even said "She was taller than we expected."

After watching Michelle Pfeiffer in several films, i would estimate her to be 5 foot 5 or 5 foot 6 inches tall, no more no less. I do not think that she is any taller or shorter then this range.

Michelle is literally one of the most beautiful women, ever.

Barney, Michelle was never a model. Michelle really doesn't look tall, at all but Mike I'll take your word for it.
Mike said on 1/Jun/11
She really is a rather tall woman, 5'7 i would say, i saw her many times on set in 80's... in heels I would say 5'9! she looks so tall in heels, she was almost taller than M. Gibson in heels... She's naturally real skinny, and has a tinny body, I guess that's why she looks smaller on tv...Anyway she is beautiful!

@Barney There's lots of models (turned-actresses) who are 5'3-5'5. I guess it's possible.
Barney said on 4/Apr/11
Michelle more than 5ft 4inch she use 2 be a model and 5ft 4 too short
Bon said on 7/Dec/10
really? I don't quite see her over 5'4
rex said on 10/Oct/07
Was watching married to the mob, Mercedes Ruehl is 5'11 and Michelle Pfeiffer doesn't come even close to her shoulders, if she is 5'6 then her head would be at lease an inch or two near to them. My guess 5'4, looks amazing though for her age.
Lorraine said on 9/Oct/07
Wow, Michelle Pfeiffer is so nice at her age, i really want to meet her, i think se wasn´t more than 165 cm, when i get her age i want to look so pretty as her
Anna said on 14/Aug/07
After seeing her in Hairspray I would have thought she was at least 5'7" or 5'8". I guess I've never really looked at photos of her though. And she may have looked taller in Hairspray because she was almost always in heels whereas others were most likely not. I have to say I'm surprised she is this height though....
lisa said on 10/Aug/07
Judging by the pics I have seen Michelle is about 5'7--5'8 would be too tall and 5'5 is too short--I'll give her 5'7--maybe closer to the 5'6ish range
Juanita said on 21/Feb/07
I saw Michelle Pfeiffer in person at the opening of the canter of the Intrepid, San Antonio, Texas. I'm pretty sure she is 5'6(1.68m) roughly, she is definately not 5,7 anyway that's for certain.
The Vicar said on 20/Feb/07
Glenn, Rob, how tall do you guys think Michelle Pfeiffer is? I would say she is 5'6, but what would you say?
McMurphy said on 8/Jan/07
I have now seen several films with Michelle Pfeiffer in to me she looks 5'6 or so most of the time.
monica said on 12/Dec/06
I think all of u are forgetting a movie called Witches of Eastwick . Susan Sarandon is 5"7 Cher is 5"8 and she is shorter than both
supes78 said on 1/Nov/06
Women's heights are tough to gauge from photos without seeing footwear. The pics that I've seen here could have Michelle in flats or heels, thus making it harder to pin down her real height. 5'6" looks like a good apporoximation for her.
JonB said on 25/Jul/06
see the attached picture with 5'8" Catherine Zeta-Jones. They both appear to be the same height.

If Michelle Pfiffer is 5 ft 6 then Al Pacino is maximum 165cm :)
Frank2 said on 18/May/06
I've met Michelle several times since I worked with her husband. She's about 5'5".
Frank said on 28/Apr/06
No way that she is 5'5. She is 5'4 at her best. See those pictures that i posted, clearly shorter than Glenn Close, same tall or a little shorter than winona Ryder. And Glenn and Winona are little women. Michelle is very petite, in her movies maybe she looked a little more taller, but in real life, she is pretty small.
Steven Ward said on 17/Apr/06
She's looks average female height and I remember seeing her at 5'5 by a magazine, and "about 5'6", by herself, on Leno. She looks a little taller (5'7 1/2) in Dangerous minds, cause she's wearing boots in the movie. Im pretty sure she's 5'5.
And she looks nice for her age.

[Editor Rob: I would agree with the 'near 5ft 6'...but 5ft 5, I wonder...maybe Glenn has seen this lady in the past? Or even Frank2?]
Dominic said on 29/Mar/06
leonari, what a dumb response to Mario's response. I never said anything about godfather and Michelle wasn't even in godfather! He was taller than her in scarface so i dont know why he is listed at 5'6.5 and him at 5'6.
leonari said on 10/Mar/06
Mario: You have no clue about nothing, especially not heights nor Pacino.
MeLiSsA said on 9/Mar/06
At the scene when they were getting married she was a good inch and a half or more taller than him and when you think about it they prob had her not wear heels since they weren't showing teir feet anyway
Mario said on 8/Mar/06
But he din'd use lifts in Scarface my friend;) Everybody knows that!
leonari said on 8/Mar/06
Pacino was never 5'7". He used lifts in Godfather.Everybody knows that!
Dominic said on 7/Mar/06
Pacino was taller than her in scarface, it showed that on the dance scene and when they first met. Maybe Pacino was around 5'7 the time scarface was made?
MeLiSsA said on 31/Jan/06
Al Pacino is listed as 5'6 and in Scarface she wasn't any shorter than him...if anything taller
Tim said on 21/Nov/05
*I* saw LadyHawke recently to check it out and when you watch the scene where they dance briefly together, you will notice that Michelle is wearing flats, and you can see them in full body, and she is only about an inch shorter than he is (he is 5'8, right?). Matthew might've been standing on an apple box for the other scenes.
CelebHeights Editor said on 23/Aug/05
From gossip group: "I've met her a couple of times and she is about average height -- I would guess 5.6"-ish but I don't know for sure."
Christy said on 17/Aug/05
Back when "Dangerous Minds" came out, I remember reading an article in 'Parade'
magazine that compared Michelle Pfeiffer with the teacher she portrayed in the movie. It gave the teacher's height as 5'7, and Michelle's as 5'5.
Mr X said on 17/Aug/05
Had you evered seen the movie the Deep End of the Ocean? Look at the scene near the end where Michelle Pfeiffer is watching her kids play basket ball at night, and 5'10" Treat Williams walks in. Definately more than a three inch height difference.
myk said on 6/Jun/05
she can't be 5'7". matthew broderick is 5'8" and in ladyhawke she was 2-3 inches shorter than matt.

[Editor Rob: a 'tad under 5ft 7' is what I thought she was...not seen ladyhawke for a while, but are you certain she looked 2-3 inches??]
