I never really took the idea of me being a model seriously, because I never thought that I had the body for it. I'm five-feet-five, and I have a bubble butt and pretty big thighs. So I learned quickly just to be happy with what I've got—and make the best of it. If I'm built thick, OK, then, I'll make it strong.

@junior Hernandez, yes, you are 😂😂
Because when I saw you, you were a full inch taller than me and I am a legit 7'0.5" guy.

Pretty girl always though her as a 5’6”, maybe she’s 166 cm at 5’5.25”

Good listing for Minka Kelly!

Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester are doppelgangers!!! Almost the same height too

Minka sure does look 5’5 range on the dot.

I’m an interview in 2016 Minka said (and I am quoting her because I watched the interview last night) “I am a proud 5’3.5 some days I can get off with a 5’4 but I’m secretly 5’3” and then it made me think of Hayden Panettiere and how she use to say she was 5’2 but she is actually 5’0
Editor Rob: do you know what show it was on?

Very beatiful women no matter of height.
Paige said on 24/Sep/16
Having seen her before in person I was pretty sure Minka was only 5'3" at most. She just seemed so short. I'm only 5'8" barefoot and we both had on what looked like equal height heels and I was surprised at how short she was. I saw her this summer.. I was wearing flip-flops so I was basically barefoot and she was wearing what looked like 5 or 6" heels. When she was standing by me she was what seemed like at least 2 or 3" taller than me in her heels. So apparently I was wrong, she's at least 5'5".

I'm exactly 5'8" and have seen her in person twice. I'd be very surprised if she was really 5'5". She seemed really short and we were both wearing heels with similar height. The other time I was in flats and she was in heels and she still looked shorter. I also have seen Miranda Cosgrove who is listed at 5'4.25. I was wearing flats, she had heels on, and she seemed taller than me for sure. So I would say either Minka is shorter than she is listed or Miranda is taller, because having seen them both I would say Minka is shorter, very pretty woman though.

@cristina LOL you sure about that?
she always looks tiny next to chris who's 182/183cm
carver said on 31/Jan/15
in the roommate she was verrrrry short, 5'11 cam gigandet made her look small, she's the same height as leighton meester. 5'5 is about accurate
said on 23/Jan/15
I think she is way taller than 165 cm. She towers over Drew Barrymore in this photo, who is listed as 160 cm here.

Wow, I am so suprised she is 5'5", I really doubt she is that height!! I was just watching pictures of her and Chris Evans and they are almost the same height, she seems taller, like 5'7". (Cobie Smulders is that height and next to Chris looks just like Minka) Scarlett Johansson is 5'3" and next to Chris Evans she is small even with heels, but Minka with 5'5" is almost his height? I don't understand. 5'3" to 5'5" is not a big difference.

Funny how she thinks her butt and thigh are big! Yeah, maybe compared to the ridiculously and unhealthily skinny other actresses in Hollywood. But even compared to the other two actresses in Charlie's Angels, she still looked slim enough. I think her figure is perfect! And she has a really lovely face too! Definitely the best looking of the three, even with Rachael Taylor having those lovely eyes!
Minka's a lucky so and so!

She's a little bit shorter than Leighton Meester. If Leighton is 5'4" max, than she's 5'3" max.
And her bubble but is fantastic.
Karen said on 8/Dec/13
I've seen her in person and 5'5 seems reasonable. She looked like a regular size girl not your typical skinny actress.
said on 29/Apr/13
I thought she was 5 foot 2 or 3 actually. I am 5 foot 4 on the dot, and I have a good idea of what my height looks like.. She just seems smaller.

Minka Kelly is 165 cm and Leighton Meester is 163 cm.

At 2011 People Choice Awards she looked shorter than 5'4.5" Leighton

Wasn't she that same height as sofia vergara in a few photos? Funny. 5 foot 5. Bubble butt? Still hot.
Hayley said on 31/Jan/12
another website lists her as 1.73m

With Gabrielle Union who is about 169 cm, Minka looks 1.5 inch smaller. She is perfect at 5'5.
said on 25/Jun/11

Sophia Bush said she's 5'4 (so she might be even shorter, like 5'3) and Minka seems to be more or less the same height.

yup @ anonymous says on 16/May/09
minka DOES seem a SOLID 5-4 especially next to leighton who is really 5-5

Minka is around 5"4. When she was on Friday Night Lights she was the shortest female cast member. My boyfriend worked on the production crews during the 1st and 2nd second seasons and often Minka would try to wear heels in a lot of scenes because she felt too short around the other female cast members.

She mentioned being 5'5" in a recent magazine interview.
