Definitely not 5'8, 5'7.5" is possible
Devil said on 8/Jul/18
5'8 or 173cm for 100%. Have seen it on her movies. And i'm telling everyone worldwide that she is exactly 173cm tall. Haha
MaryAnne said on 25/Jun/18
1.71 seems more accurare
MAD SAM said on 21/Jun/18
Always looked 5’8” but I guess it’s not the case, she’s about 2 cm taller to 168 cm Ali so 170 cm seems accurate
Vexacus said on 8/Mar/18
Yeah , 5'8 , Rob you should make a tag for Resident Evil , there's a lot of characters and it's very popular.
Junior Hernandez said on 4/Feb/18
5'7 1/2 will be it. 5'6.5" Ali Larter look at most full inch shorter.
said on 11/Nov/17
5'6. Always among the shortest one on the runway!
Editor Rob: I could see 5ft 7.5 range as very possible, though I'm not sure as low as 5ft 6.
Rose said on 6/Nov/17
A friend of mine saw her in real life at a restaurant (spoke to her) and said she is about 5'6". She was surprised because she thought she was going to be a lot taller. BTW, my friend is 5'9" and said that Milla was quite a bit shorter than her.
MaryAnne said on 9/Sep/17
Rob please add her in the female model list. She was once a model
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Mar/17
I reckoned Milla was taller than the 5ft8 by a good inch, but then she is very trim! I couldn't agree more with the comment from SJH from 16th February of this year; her waist is much smaller than 28! I have at least 6 of her films and she has a skinny waist - 25" at most before pregnancy, I'd say!
The first film I saw of hers was '45' and she played the role of a wronged woman excellently. I must add that in that film she looks tiny in every respect because the man who is hurting her is enormous in every respect!
I was so impressed with her acting that I bought 2 more of her films the very next time I went out, 'Ultraviolet' and 'Resident Evil', but '45' is in my view definitely the most powerful.
Milla gets 5ft8 from me!
She has gone from model to BRILLIANT actress!
S.J.H said on 16/Feb/17
Her waist can't be 28. Probably 25 peak and about 26 now
Bammer said on 31/Oct/16
Hi Rob. You have Ali Larter at 5'6½" and Milla at 5'8" but if you look at the pics of them together, there's hardly any difference at all. I would say 5'7" max. for Milla.
Michel said on 23/Oct/16
I already knew that milla is 173cm tall for 10 years ago
mil said on 29/Sep/16

Isn't she Serbian, Rob?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have thought she was if she spent a few years of her early life in Ukraine?

I think Milla is 5'7"
with 5'9" Super Model Linda Evangelista
Taylor1994 said on 6/Feb/16
Maybe 170 is more real.
div said on 30/Dec/15
Fray 5'8 is nonsense . In photos with 5'8 Sharon Stone she is close to 2 inches shorter . She is maybe an inch shorter than Heidi Klum who is 5'8" at most . Those who have met Millia say she is between 5'6" and 5'7".
Fray said on 28/Dec/15
She was modeling at 9 and got a Revlon ad at 12. In the photo below with Heidi - her shoes are shorter. She is a good 5'8" - she was taller than most girls (not in Volleyball) in Walter Reed Jr High (predominantly was latino)- where she was already over 5'7"
Chris said on 26/Dec/15
5'8 for 100%
div said on 27/Aug/15
In photos with 5'8 Sharon Stone she looks over an
inch shorter. She is 5'6. 5.
Helena Zion said on 27/Aug/15
Everyone knows that model agencies tend do add an inch or two to models who are not so tall but are incredibly beautiful or famous/celebrities so as they get more "value" in the market. It's common place in this industry. I'd say she looks 5'7 (

Cathy said on 27/Apr/15
I wouldn't go by her model mgt. for height proof. In the 1990s as an adult,she was a 5'6 model, now she's saying 5'8- 5'9.
Josh1 said on 7/Apr/15
I thought she was 5'6 maybe 5'6.5 she doesn´t look 5'8 at all.

Andrew M said on 4/Oct/14
Richard & Judy were wrong - it's not between Angelina Jolie and Uma Thurman - Milla is the ultimate ass-kicking babe! And now she does actually train in martial arts in her spare time.
And ARCH STANTON - she is slim, but she's NOT skinny! Her legs look better than pipe cleaners!
Clark said on 8/Sep/14
Paul Anderson is 6'2
fred said on 31/Aug/14

az said on 19/Jul/14

Katherine said on 29/Jan/14
I think 174 cm is fair
Just said on 24/Jan/14
She's 174 cm.
And because she isn't a "big girl" doesn't mean she's skinny. She has a natural slim, lean and athletic body.
kevin said on 11/Dec/13

FYI, in that link to the pic with "James Blunt"...that's not James Blunt, it's Paul Anderson...her very tall husband.
DanMan said on 21/Dec/12
I agree with Anna, judging by pictures of her with 5'9" Linda Evangelista and 5'6" Jessica Alba, she's closer to 5'7".
Anna said on 27/Oct/12
I met her. I'm 5'7. She is about my height, definitely not 5'8.
lena said on 1/Oct/12
@nagendra-she is also about 100000 times more attractive than you, but you forgot to meantion that

I think she's 5'8... at least img has her listed at 5'8... Ali Larter too...
Cindy said on 17/Nov/11
@Coral- small for a Serbian woman? I think you'd mean she's tall for a serbian woman. Ive half Serbian and have been there many times, and I know for a fact that our averages are about the same as US, UK and Aus ones. There is great variation in height, with tall, short and average people everywhere. And by the way, 5'8" (173cm) is tall for a woman everywhere in the world.
Silent d said on 28/Oct/11
Milla is tall. Clearly taller than ali larter who i think is 5 foot 7. 5 foot 8 is right. Attractive girl!
Coral said on 16/Oct/11
if she is just 173 cm she is then small for a serbian woman

5'8 for Milla Jovovich
JD89 said on 8/Apr/11
she claimed to be 174cm(5'8.5) in an italian fashion magazine some years ago , i remember it well because she's my favorite actress ( she was awesome in JOAN OF ARC )
said on 20/Jan/11
There's a full shot in the film Stone where she's barefoot face to face with DeNiro (in shoes) and they're the same height. In the scene, she's having him try on special insoles so there may actually be extra insoles in his shoes. DeNiro is at least 5'8" so Milla really does look at least 5'8.5" possibly 5'9".
toni said on 16/Jan/11
Shes probably like 5'6 - 5'7 barefoot but reaches 5'9 in heals which is why she looks a lot taller on screen.
Bambi said on 16/Jan/11
Yeah, I thought she was 5'9 maybe.
Boris said on 14/Jan/11
Milla is hot in red.she must be more than 5'9"
adam mathews said on 16/Nov/10

richard said on 27/Oct/10
I saw her on a late night talk show and she looked really small in the chair.this surprised me because I imagined she would be around six feet.
nagendra said on 27/Oct/10

Jordan said on 22/May/09
Nope she's 5'9/174cm
junak said on 18/Apr/09
shes serbian. she must be tall. no way shes under 173cm. the average serbian woman is 170cm. and shes surely above it.
Anonymous said on 2/Mar/09
She looks about 5'8". I always thought she was taller. Bruce Willis describes her character in The Fifth Element as 5'9". I don't know why there are all the ridiculous 5'5" and 5'6" claims.
LS said on 11/Dec/08
From the movies, I say she is around 5'8"
casiotech said on 13/Oct/08
yeah she's 5'6'' to 5'7''.
Anonymous said on 6/Sep/08
5'8 is a bit to much.She cant be above 5'7. In some films she doesnt even seem tall at all.
5'6,168,is probably her real height, one or two inches less.....as ALWAYS with celebrities, especially models.
Anonymous said on 6/Sep/08
Yet slim,she doesn't look tall at all in pictures. I'd say 170-168 would be correct, wich isn't a particular tall height.
anon said on 15/Aug/08
Delainy, how can you judge from *this* photo how tall they are? First, what shoes are they wearing? Second, how do you know Noemi is really 5 ft 10? Third, even if they are wearing exactly the same heels and Noemi is the height you claim, 4 or 5 inches shorter? Do you know how much 5 inches are?
said on 13/Aug/08
First I always thought Milla was a tall girl(5 ft 9), untill I saw her in this picture with Noemi Lenoir Click Here
Noemi is 1.78 m(5 ft 10) And Milla is in this pic about 4/5 inches shorter.
Glenn, I think you have to downgrade her. I think Milla is 5'5 or 5'6. So 165 cm or 168 m.
steven said on 9/Aug/08
i think she was closer to 5"8' in resident evil series and fifth element
Anonymous said on 9/Aug/08
I thought she was at least 5'9". She looks taller.
Anonymous said on 7/Aug/08
Haha, it's funny that Gleen would say she's just over 5'6" since that pretty much shoots down his "over 6 foot" claims for Bruce Willis. In fact, considering his footwear in that movie, he looks 6' max next to her at this height.
Ellie said on 7/Jul/08
I think 174-175 is more like it.
1.87 cm said on 15/Jun/08
o really? she looks quite short in resident evil 1 the black commando is about 25 cm taller than her!!!whats his name. so the black commando is about 2 meters or milla is about 1.65 cm
John said on 18/Apr/08
She doesnt look like a solid 5'8" girl, more to 5'7" in movies and pictures.
cate said on 27/Feb/08
She's 173 cm in bare heels, the same as me.
writercab said on 17/Aug/07
I saw her in some pics with French supermodel Noemie Lenoir and she is about 5'9-5'10. They both were wearing 3inch hills and Noemie looked like a giant compared to Milla. I would say she is about 5'6.5 and her thinnest makes her look taller to the eye. I think those two were hanging out at together at the Rush Hour 3 movie, which Noemie played a really good part finally. What's up Glen, what do you think about that?
Ivan 6'2.25 said on 7/Jul/07
In the end of resident evil 2 was 6 inches shorter than Iain Glen.
suzie said on 19/Jun/07
femers? what does that have to do with anything. im 5'7.5 and when i turn sideways i disapear, people always think im taller than 5'8ish because im so skinny. she is most def. 5'8.5
carla said on 11/Jun/07
Yes, she is tall. I met Milla last winter and she was very tall. 5"8 seems just right. She may have been a little smaller, but surely not too much.
Mike said on 27/May/07
She looks 5'8 - 5'8.5 nothing less
Crissy said on 17/May/07
I think 5'8 is actually pretty good, since I saw her in person a few years ago and back then I was like 5'5 *but i'm 5'8 now* and she was a bit taller then me.
calk said on 7/Mar/07
5ft 8 i'd say in ultraviolet, probs 5ft 7,5
Alex said on 1/Nov/06
Her site says 5'9 so could it be off 2-3 inches? She looks 5'7-5'8 to me.
Editor Rob said on 5/Sep/06
Stunt double on one film said "she’s about 5’8”, and I’m about 5’3”!

in the movie 'the fifth element' bruce willis describes milla's height as 5'9"
Zook said on 30/Mar/06
Being a big fan, I would say 5'-7" is correct, also Milla is not Ukranian; she is half Russian and half Serbian, but really mostly American, having grown up here in California since age 5.
Gotxo said on 11/Mar/06
Sure she is under 5'7" ? I was going to as to th Genoma project to make a clon for al the males of the world...no matter she's no as tall as i thought, i want my copy! ;)
Glenn said on 10/Mar/06
Your Right,a Little Over 5-6.
Anonymous said on 10/Mar/06
I stood next to her and I think she was 5'6" 5'7" - Either I am taller than my doctor says or she is only 5'7" max.
Alex said on 28/Feb/06
Her site actually says 5'9, just checked it but IMDB.com says 5'8. IMDB can be tricky as some heights can be accurate or very close to it then some are off by a few inches at least.
Shes thin so she could appear taller but I am going to say shes 5'8, not under that.
Sarah said on 3/Feb/06
She is a model, and model managers are usually very strict when it comes to height. If she was under 5'8'' she couldn't have been a model unless she was a living sack of bones like Kate Moss, who is like 5'7'', but can manage to look taller because of her extreme thinness. Thin people tend to look taller, and although Milla is thin, she is not Kate Moss-thin. I'm pretty sure she is the 5'8.5 her site claims.
mcfan said on 18/Sep/05
She is at the most 5'8. Pictures I've seen of her next to taller models wearing similar shoes indicate that 5'8.5 is too high. She's 5'7.75-5'8.
Z2 said on 9/Jul/05
Milla Jovovich looks 5'6"-5'7" to me. Milla doesn't have 5'8" femurs, but does look to have 5'6"-5'7" femurs.
said on 23/May/05
Here she is next to 5'5 Virginie Ledoyen: here
And there is no way that she is 5'8.5...5'7.5 max. Anyway, that height is from her official site anyway which probably means that she is lying.[Editor Rob: I would say in many photos of Milla she adopts poses that do make her look nothing like a 174cm girl.]
