I can't wear heels on the show, because I'm [5 feet 8 inches tall]. The other actors are so much shorter than me, even the boys -- except Adam [Brody]. But I'm happy to wear flats.

Mischa is tall, but I don´t know if she´s a full 5 feet 9. I'll go with 5 feet 8 3/4. An inch taller than Ben McKenzie

She looks closer to 5ft8 1/2" .. she is tall and very hot

She didn't look much taller than Denise Richards in the film the toybox when both in flats at most an inch taller. Are you sure she's this tall? Or maybe Denise is taller than listed

Can you add her to female models rob?
As a young girl in the 1990s, Mischa Barton signed with Ford Models and modeled for well-known brands, including Calvin Klein Jeans.

My comment from February, 4 months ago today, said that I hadn't yet seen Mischa Barton act in anything! Well, I have now and can verify that she is as tall as 5ft9, slender, but healthily so and very pretty! I saw her in the film 'Octane', playing a vulnerable 15-year- old at loggerheads with her Mum, played by Madeleine Stowe!
Was it a good introduction to Mischa's work? You bet! She was great in what proved to be a very taut little thriller!
She gets 5ft9 for sure!
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Feb/17
I must admit, I was quite bowled over when I found out from a magazine that Mischa is this tall! I thought she was quite a bit smaller from pictures alone because I have never seen any programmes with her in them yet!

I mean she look closer to 5'8.5 but as much as i see her look more in a solid 5'8 range maybe just 5'8.25
S.J.H said on 24/Sep/16
I agree shes not 5'9 but closer to 5'7.5 or right on it
SK said on 10/Mar/16
Saw her in person about 5 years ago, and she's really not this tall. She was wearing skinny jeans and flats, and she looked about 5'6"-5'7". She's probably 5'9" in heels, but not in flats. Also, this was when she was heavier, but she was very pear-shaped and did not have the proportions of someone who is supposedly 5'9." Her legs were very short compared to her torso.
Allie said on 31/Dec/15
Whoa. She was a popular subject for 06-07. After that, Not so much. Makes sense though. The OC ended in 2007 and I don't remember seeing much of her after that.
Editor Rob: data from 09-12 isn't available, but interest in her did fall off.
MaryAnne said on 28/Nov/15
It's understood from the entries way back to 06 she was so popular once upon a time!
Brody said on 1/Aug/13
Legit 5'9". She was an inch taller than 5'8" Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan) in the O.C.
Silent d said on 26/Jan/12
5 foot 9. What happened to her? Don't see her anymore.
anon said on 19/Jan/12
Yep, pretty solid 5'9" I'd say. I'm 5'5" & met her while wearing boots (her wearing flats) with a 2 inch heel and still didn't meet her eye to eye. Next to my 5'9" friend they were pretty similar in height.
uhhh said on 13/Jan/12
same person... rob, jimmy kimmel is 6'1 because she was wearing heels on his show, and she was wearing heels, and they were the same height. So either jimmy IS 5'11 then mischa is 5'7?
[Editor Rob: it depends how big heels are. They could give say 2.5 up to a large 4.5 (and in heel terms that's huge, the ones that give 4.5 inches get advertised as 6-inches usually).

but he's got 1 inch shoe, so the footwear difference might not be as much as imagined?]
maio said on 27/Dec/11
agree with rob. Mischa Barton is a strong 5 ft 9 in/175 cm.
Silent d said on 25/Oct/11
She is tall but I've only seen her in the oc. I know she is a model but her acting career has gone down the drain. That is definitely not Blake lively. Get your facts right. 175 is about right.
sugar said on 17/Aug/11
ye she is 5'9". with,3" she look 3" taller than rihanna who stands on her injured foot.
Shaun said on 15/Nov/10
Just saw her interview with Fearne Cotton and she came across as really weird. Almost like a split personality. She'd be really nice one minute then she made Fearne wait outside her house for 4 hours. She did look 5'9" sometimes and then other times more like 5'7".
frfrf said on 11/Nov/10
She does not look 5'9 at all
Original said on 8/Jul/09
Looks 5'9.75" sometimes, but she's a true solid 5'9"

JLee, Mischa is absolutely not 6 foot, trust me I've met her. Also when she was on the daily 10, she looked two inches shorter than Ashlan Gorse who is 5'11.75 and they were both wearing similar footwear. By the way 5'8 is a rare height for a girl in America as the average is 5'4.5. Same thing thing with a 6'1 guy, a 6'1 guy would be the tallest person in the room 95% of the time.
Anonymous said on 16/Jun/09
JLee, the average height for a woman in America is 5'4.5. 5'8 is well above average, it's very tall for a girl. The average height for a guy in America is 5'9.5. A 5'8 girl would be the equivelant of about a 6'1 or 6'2 guy.
aram x said on 26/Apr/09
yeah JJ 5,9" is actually quite tall for a woman because most gals are in the 5,3-5,5" range.
mf said on 23/Apr/09
Sandy, she is also stated in recent interview:

What size are you?

I
Sandy said on 22/Mar/09
She did say she was 5'8" in a glamour magazine article, so she is probably like 5'81/4" and was rounding down and then mabey sometimes she rounds up, hence the above quote.
J.J. said on 1/Mar/09
Jlee. 5'8" for a woman is 6'1.75" for a man & this official from the W.H.O. growth charts & u are about 94% taller so 5'8" for a woman is tall. It has never been short. Mischa at 5'9" is so believeable & her equivalent for a man is 6'2.75" that's nearly 6'3". Anytime I meet 5'8" girls they tend to live in flats almost everytime.
Comets said on 25/Feb/09
probably one of the fewest Hollywood tallest actors who aren't models
Briggs said on 7/Jan/09
tall norwegian girl, i've seen norwegian men, they are often very tall. i guess average height for norwegian males must be about 6 feet, so you're just a crybaby
Alex said on 10/Dec/08
If shes only 5'9 I'd be a bit suprised. Looks more 5'10ish at least. Could be 5'9 1/2 and rounding down.
Anonymous said on 5/Dec/08
yea 5ft9 makes sense with about a 42 inch ass now
Anonymous said on 13/Nov/08
looks about 5ft 10
anonymous said on 9/Nov/08
She is five foot 9. She just looks tall. Adam brody looks short. He just doesnt look like 5 foot 11 like brad pitt who is five foot 11. Brad pitt looks short too.
Emilie said on 7/Nov/08
Well, if she's really 5ft 9 and Adam Brody is listed as 5ft 10.5 (eventhough he claims to be 5ft 11), that means there's an inch and a half between them...I guess that's about right. I know it's difficult to judge sometimes but in the oc Adamy does look an inch or so taller than her.
Jlee said on 31/Oct/08
I would say she is 6 foot, now that i think of it. ATLEEASt
anonymous said on 19/Oct/08
mischa barton, looks so lanky in some of the shows, but she doesnt seem so tall, 175, is an alright height.
limy said on 1/Oct/08
To Jlee:
I'm not sure if I understand what you're asking lol but no I can't tell if someone is 5'10" when I wear heels. It's harder to figure out someone's height if you are taller. And it's not much of a shock when I take off heels and stand next to someone who is 5'10" I mean, an inch is not much a difference in height, right?
:)
Anna said on 27/Sep/08
tall norwegian girl,i feel your pain.I'm about 5'6.5 and have a long neck,legs,and arms which make me look a lot taller.There are girls who are close to me in height(5'5-5'7.5)who look noticably shorter than me cuz of my stupid long assets.And there are tons of guys who are about 5'10-5'11 who look the same height as me too.I strongly dislake my long assets because of it.
Jlee said on 26/Sep/08
Limy, you are five nine. If someone is five ten, can you tell they are taller if you are in heels? and then when you take off your heels are you shocked that your shorter?
*laura* said on 19/Sep/08
yeah she does look around 5'9.
Alex said on 16/Sep/08
I'd say more 5'10 than 5'9. Could be downplaying herself. Tall girls will do that
Anonymous said on 6/Sep/08
Why wouldn t somebody thats allready in the tall range want to be any taller???
That includes women. Somebody down there stated that tall women dont like being that tall, and in fact would like to reduce their height. hahahaha!!!
Speak for your self. Even models being arond 5'10 upgrade their height!! why? Cos its show biz! I claim Mischa is around 174cm, under 5'9 deffinetly. And she would perflectly lie about her height. The 170cm to 175cm range is the worst for a model, dying to go over the 5'9 line that can allow you getting a career or the sack. So i think that anything above 5'8,5 (not to mention ridiculos 5'10, please!!!) is wrong.
Anonymous said on 6/Sep/08
Having long legs and short torso or the opposite has nothing to do with being tall or short. Its nonsence judjing height like that. I mean, do top models seem to have short legs? just because their tall? come on...
One thing has nothing to do with the other. So saying Mischa Barton has to be 5'11 the least because her legs are long...is ridiculous.
She cant be any bigger than 5'9. THree years ago in an interview on "Glamour" magazine she claimed herself being 173cm, thats 5'8.So 5'9 could also be possible, as celebrities always add therselves an inch (dont know why) or even three.
And thats way a lot of a difference with 180cm, 5'11.
Lisa said on 4/Sep/08
Imagine me a 157cm tall and Mischa 175 cm tall. She would probably be standing over me, although I would love to meet her. She is my favourite celebrity! I mean imagine meeting someone off the OC, that would be so cool.
Emily said on 1/Sep/08
It says in Dolly magazine that you can measure your self against celebrity's on this web site. How do I do that?

[Editor Rob:

no way, this was mentioned in Dolly Magazine, that's a teen magazine I take it?

Anyway there is a page you can enter your height and see the female celebs who are around your height : Here]
Anna said on 20/Aug/08
I think shes 5'11.
Jlee said on 5/Aug/08
you know, she does come across as five foot eleven if she is only five nine. I am in lake tahoe right now. I am five ten exact, five 10.5 in the mornings. Anyways, a lot of people think im crazy when I say five eight is not that all for a girl, which is why i think mischa is taller. A lot of people here say they haven't seen a five nine women in a long time, now isn't that crazy? I am very good at heights. before, this site i could name every single height of a female i liked. Now anyways, here on a trip at tahoe, while in safeway, I walked past, counted 6 girls that were atleast an inch taller than me, they wore no heels. So that means 6 girls are taller than 5 foot 11. Sound suprising? Not to me, I see it all the time. I went to a swimming center today, saw a lady about 5 foot 10.5 and another teenage girl about 6 feet. Yesterday at yoga, a girl was 5 foot 11. There were 2 other blondes as tall as me. So, to me five eight for a girl is AVERAGE. It may be taller than the average height, but what I mean is it is still normal. Ok, so lets say a girl average height is 5 foot 5. Five eight is equvilent of a guy that is 6 feet. Am I wrong? how many 6 foot guys do you see? I see them ALL the time. Infact most guys at my gym are six feet. So, I don't get it when all these people say I'm crazy cuz i say 5 foot 8 is very very common for a girl. Just like 6 foot or 1 is common for a guy. So, without sounding a bit crazy, I think now that mischa is five foot eleven and 3/4. With heels, about 6 foot 2. She is very close to 6 feet. She sure doesn't like heels and downgrades her height. trust me, i know, i know.
Emilie said on 3/Aug/08
I do think she is around 5ft 8.5/5ft 9 for definite. As people have already said, she seems to be taller than Benjamin McKenzie but shorter than Adam Brody.
Bj25492008 said on 24/Jul/08
Yeah, I think Mischa Barton's body istoo long to be just claiming 5'9". I'm 5'9", and I have long legs and a short torso.Most people have one or the other. She has both long legs and a long torso, so I think she is around 5'10" or 5'10.5.
kimb said on 23/Jul/08
I think she's around 5ft 10.5 inches, im a 5ft 10 male and i think she is taller than me. You can easily see this height through her legs, there so long as well as her torso. A very beautiful women though..
CC said on 9/Jul/08
i'd say she was between 5'8 and 5'9. she's taller than bejamin mckenzie in flats but not taller than adam brody.

i'm 5'8 and i certainly wouldnt lie to make myself seem taller, i really don't see it is as a blessing!
violet said on 4/Jul/08
everyone is like y would she lie about her height?
a lot girls do it to seem taller


i agree that she is probly close to 174cm
which is 5"8
but everyone is saying she is like 5"10, 5"11
i think thats a bit off
i think more around the 174cm mark
Chlawk said on 2/Jun/08
still... she is not an inch taller than Brody even if she is bending her legs, that look quite straight. And if you think that she has an inch on Brody, there are still the facts that she is closer to the camera and that he has a funny pose. The photo with Glenn is quite funny btw.
She is a 5-8 in my eyes. She looks higher in most photos, but the is mostly in killing heels and the fact that she is thin makes her appear higher.
Anonymous said on 2/Jun/08
Clawk,

you can't tell from the photos how bent her legs are. Women are notorious for not standing upright in heels.
Chlawk said on 1/Jun/08
Those are still killer heels, if she would really be bigger than 5`7 and something, she would have to be quite a tad bigger than Adam. And furthermore, she is a tad closer to the camera and does not seem to have such a bad hold in the photo, and look at Adams shoulders, yes.. they are higher than her and if it where to me, he has the funny posture in this photo.

If Adam Brody is 5-11, she is at most a solid 5-8... looook at those heels... the 174cm she claims seem correct
Emilie said on 27/May/08
I think Mischa is a great height, very elegant! She shouldn't be ashamed of her height (don't know whether she is or not) but, she looks great :)
glenn said on 19/May/08
what are you wearing when she has her heels on? is she thinner than you?
glenn said on 16/May/08
are you kidding me? never heard of heels? and brooke is 5-11.5,not 6-2.that was dumbest post on the site in awhile.comin g from someone who seemed intelligent in the other posts.plenty of pics on the site with celeb men show me at 5-8,even a 5-9 illusion.
amira from indonesia said on 13/May/08
mischa is a 5'9" girl, its already abvious. Cause my cousin that lives in LA had a photo with her, and my cousin is 5'9" , at that time mischa is not wearing heels . And if you see at magazines like vogue, they say she is 5'9" .
mah said on 12/May/08
well she is considerably shorter than lily cole. - who is 5'10.5''
robbie said on 11/May/08
i would say she is about 5'7 or 5'8..not taller ..not shorter than that..
M.P. said on 7/May/08
She NEVER looked that big before! I could've sworn 5'7", 5'8" MAX.
kat said on 19/Feb/08
angela is so wrong. I am 5'9'' and I live in Germany and I meassured myself, so in cm I am about 1,75 cm. so susan is right... was mischa wearing heels in this pic?
Astrid said on 4/Feb/08
I think the one thing all (well, most) of us can agree on is that she has always been a little bit taller than what she's said... why'd she get downgraded Rob??
glenn said on 3/Feb/08
yeah,chris175.the crazy thing is i originally thought she was 5-11.until i saw her in slip ons.
chris175 said on 2/Feb/08
glenn i agree with you, she is a tall girl, i think she is a bit ashamed of being so tall and maybe knocked an inch off or rounded down. i would say 5-10, she always seems to be slouching a bit
height_police said on 28/Jan/08
she is 5'9 at her best!!! as tall as 5'9 and ash short as 5'8...
I saw her..once...she didnt seem like 5'10 to me....maybe because she si too skiny gives that impression...
and rose...you are totally wrong...
adam ist 5'10.05 at his best, mischa, 5'9...maybe a tad under that, ben 5'7.05 struggling to 5'8 and rachel its like 5'1.02...she si so damn tiny_!
Anonymous said on 26/Jan/08
Except that there is no way that Rachel Bilson is 5'3"
rose1984 said on 25/Jan/08
ah ha!! came up with my theory of o.c heights:
adam - 6ft
mischa - 5ft 10" (ish)
ben - 5 ft 9.5 (ish)
rachel - 5ft 3"...there you go....problem of the oc casts heights solved....
rose said on 24/Jan/08
ok, she is leaning into Glenn in this photo...any one noticed?? I know the signs of a tall person wanting to be shortre...my sister does it in all our photos together cos she is about 2" taller then me, but to appear shorter then me she leans into me giving off the illusion that she is actually about an inch shorter (get all that??)so my guess is that Mischa is about 5ft 10"...
Felix said on 12/Jan/08
In this interview she claims to be 5 ft 8.5

I think Mischa looks like she is close to 6ft tall. On the OC when she had scenes with Willa Holland, Mischa appeared to be at least 4 inches taller.

According to Inmate Information Center is 5'9" and 125 lbs.

i way off too astrid.i thought she was near 5-11.i cant tell womens height well in heels.i have a pic with her in what was practically slippers she was wearing.and i stood next to her for a half hour.i couldnt pinpoint 5-9.5 or 5-10.less on the 5-10.of course i countered in my footwear.
Astrid said on 21/Dec/07
Thank you Glenn!
glenn said on 10/Dec/07
5-9.5 to 5-10. i pretty much measured her.
Anonymous said on 9/Dec/07
she is 5'9 tops!! no way she is taller than that if she is that would make adam brody as a 6' man! and he barely 5'11 maybe..5'10...she can be as short as 5'8 and as tall as 5'9!
amazing grace said on 25/Nov/07
To susan your comments about growth are way off the mark.
people do not all stop growing at 18 I grew count them 9 inches from 18 to 21.
Physiology is not so precise the exact age an individual stops growing is determined by genes diet and interaction with the environment thats different for everyone even identical twins.
Most Dr's would inform you that men keep on growing on average well into the 20's.
Do your homework
emmmmmmmm said on 19/Nov/07
i dont mean to be rude. or maybe im blind...
but where are mischa's arms in that photo with glenn?
LAAnonyme said on 25/Oct/07
Mischa is 5'9", no taller. She's also very thin, which makes her look taller. Most actresses add a little to their heights when asked how tall they are - they never say they're shorter than they really are - her answer of 5'9" is right on the nose.

Yeah, I think 5'9.5 is just about right. She's a really tall girl. Gah luckyy
Anna said on 25/Sep/07
I know, she's too tall, it's kind of scares me to be honest. But, anyway, she should be upgraded to a solid 5'10" in my opinion seeing as she is not a full inch shorter than Adam Brody. She looks taller than him at times. I wonder if she'll be in any upcoming movies. And I also wonder how old she is, does anyone know?
sam said on 17/Sep/07
same to susan also. I realize your father's a doctor, so is mine actually! However though no one expects an 18 year old to grow, there's always the rare excetions I guess. Mischa won't grow more at this age but whatever I think she's grown enough!!!
sam said on 17/Sep/07
Actually corney, some people still grow after 18, just usually not girls. For example, i grew 2 inches since that age! doctors didn't really think I would. However, i was slightly behind in growth so I guess everyone's a litle different...
corney said on 17/Sep/07
what's up with this comments? i thought we are all here to "discuss" about people's height not about how much people have to share one computer in one household with three dogs and two cats and maybe mice?!!! so don't blame rob he made up this site so be glad to use it and if you are so many people who study why don't you use your comp for studying, and let this girl who found the site use it alone?
glenn said on 13/Sep/07
i have another where she is in slippers.she was 5-9.5 tops.i was surprised.
Anna said on 12/Sep/07
Okay, so both glenn and Mischa are bending, so I think it's safe to say that Mischa is about 4.5 inches taller than Glenn in 2.5" (?) heels, so, that would put Mischa at 2 to 2.5 inches taller than Glenn barefoot and, seeing as Glenn is 5'8" barefoot, Mischa would be 5'10" to 5'10.5", would she not be? There is absolutely no way she is anything under 5'9.5", but I honestly think someone can go as high as 5'11" for her because when standing up straightly she is as tall if not taller than Adam Brody.
corney said on 6/Sep/07
susan is right people stop growing at the age of 18 so mischa's not going to grow anymore and will not be 6'0'' anytime
glenn said on 31/Aug/07
if you ask everyone esle,they would tell you the opposite.i think i stand straight.i dont take photos for the site.i take them for myself and proof in my autograph business.im happy to contribute to the site.
susan said on 30/Aug/07
ahm she's 21 she's not going to grow anymore!!! people stop growing between the age of 17 to 19, trust me, my fathers a doctor! at the age of 24-26 she will start shrinking! so she never will be 6'0'' she's at best 5'10''! so i would say i'm not the funniest one here, you are, believing she's going to grow at the age of 21? i can't believe you have to do this for school, do you even attend school? i mean, if, you have to know people stop growing at the age of about 18...
and how do you know her father's 6'7''???
susan said on 29/Aug/07
ok skulls&skies she really pushs her leg forward but if she would stand up straight she would be as tall as adam but adam does sth weird with his feet too so he doesnt stand up straight too and mischa wears heels so i'm sure she is not as tall as adam, i would give her 5'9.5''like its listed on that page, ahh maybe i should write her doctor a letter and ask him about her height...
susan said on 28/Aug/07
right i found a pic of mischa and lily (5'10.5'') cannot see mischas heels, but lily doesnt stand straight up and mischa too, but lily still seems taller than her..dont know..

this one shows her with adam and the rest, mh adam is taller than her and she already wears heels so if adam is 5'11'' she is obviously not 5'11'' or even 5'10''

francis said on 28/Aug/07
didnt read my coment? pics can lie, if not, how is it possible that she looks at one pic shorter and on the next one taller than this guy??? pics can lie! i've seen photos of her and melinda clark, both look the same height but in fact melinda is 2-3 inch shorter, and she cannot be 5'10'' if model gemma ward and lily cole who are 5'10'' are always taller than her, and there's nothing bout the shoes, both wore flats and stand straight up...but anyway what the hell..if she said i'm 5'9'' she is knowing better than glenn(sorry Glenn ;)) cause she's talking bout her own height and liv tyler isn't 5'10'' shes 5'8'', and well i always thought alexis bledel is tall watching her at gilmore girls and on pics but in reality she is 5'6'' so she isnt that tall at all so in tv or on pics people appear taller than in reality...anyway theres an article on this site telling how pics can lie so dont tell me pics cant lie blue eyed something!

Mischa Barton looks 5'7" to me. Half the time Mischa's wearing high heels or some kind of boots with heels. I don't think the 5'9" listing is correct.
marleen said on 22/Aug/07
its so funny i am the same height but i live in holland so i am not the tallest at all americans are much smaller we are tall people haha

well anybody who says she is bout 5'7'' is a fool, obviously she is taller! but those who say she's taller than 5'10'' are fools too, cause as mentioned several times mischa next to 5'10'' girl gemma or lily is shorter so i would say 5'9'' is quiet right, anyway didn't she always say she's 5'9''? so trust her she's the person who knows best bout her own height!!! and astrid mischa isn't taller than adam if she is shorter than lily and gemma and she is!!! she can not be taller than 5'11'' boy adam! anyway i wouldn't trust those pics at all cause pics can variey ones height, there are pics of mischa and carlos lopez, the boy she hangs out with(the dark,..ugly..one)and on one she seems 2 inches taller than him and on the next one he seems 4 inches taller than her, and both stand straight up side by side so...well seems mischa is able to change her height whenevr she wants ha? no but understand what i mean? pics deceive
Mike said on 18/Aug/07
I've never met her but IMO she looks about an inch taller than this so 5'10.5. She looks a solid 5'10 to me. She looks taller than this with Sharapova, who I have seen in 'real life' but 5'10 everywhere else.

Sharapova btw is HUGE, not just in height but she was much broader than I expected too. I saw her at the DFS classic tournament in Birmingham for the last two years, she towers over everyone.

misha i'd say shes 5'9. in the picture she does taller then him even though its an inch it still could makee a difference when ur next to someone. i'd say a half an inch next to a person is not tht much difference but an inch is when u can tell more who looks taller.
mf said on 12/Aug/07
Mischa can't be taller than 5'9 1/2, as the pictures of her next to the 5'10 supermodels make clear.
Astrid said on 10/Aug/07
Sorry, that last Anonymous comment on the 4th of August was from me. I forgot to put my name in. I agree with you as usual, Anna.

By the way leila, in that second link you posted, Mischa is TALLER than Adam, (Adam Brody = 5'11") and her head is slightly tilted downwards AND she's not standing up straight! They're not the same height at all!

In that link, Mischa's heels seem to be about 2.5-3" inches high. Therefore, Mischa has got to be taller than 5'9.5, because she's certainly more than half an inch taller than Adam in the link!
Anna said on 8/Aug/07
Just a question I have, since when is one inch "way shorter"? And, yeah, Anonymous, there is no way Mischa is shorter than 5'9". I too believe she said 5'9" just because she downgraded her height. I've actually heard say as low as 5'7" and judging by her posture, she is, at the least, a bit uncomfortable with her height. People always think that a person would NEVER downgarde their height, but I think that some girls, especially taller ones like Mischa, are very keen to downgrade their height. And if you have seen the show, you will see Mischa is at the least 5'10". Yeah?
Leung said on 6/Aug/07
Anna, I think she is close to 5’10”.
leila said on 5/Aug/07
no she is not as tall as adam!!! look at the two pics, one shows her beside adam-they are the same height, but the other shows that she is wearing high heels, so if she is with heels as tall as adam there is NO WAY that she is as tall as him barefoot!!!

I'm 5'9.75" so I'm closer to 5'10" than 5'9", but I still say that I'm 5'9" when people ask me how tall I am. I have a feeling Mischa could be a hair off 5'10" (much like myself - only a quarter of an inch) but she's still going to say 5'9" regardless.

5'9.5 still seems right for Mischa.... or at least until we can get more proof.
Besides leila, Mischa is nearly if not as tall as Adam Brody on the OC, and he's marked at 5'11"... she's at LEAST 5'9"!
leila said on 4/Aug/07
i agree with ANONYMOUS, mischa, standing next to model gemma ward is ways shorter, and gemma is 5'10'' so there is no way mischa is 5'10'', she is at best 5'9''
Anna said on 3/Aug/07
Okay, maybe that's it then? Then what do you think Mischa is, Leung? I would reckon a strong 5'10"-5'10.5" because she can sometimes look a full inch taller than Ben when he's wearing heels. And if he were only 5'7", that would put Mischa at 5'10", although I am sort of thinking he is really 5'8". Dunno though.
Leung said on 3/Aug/07
I think Ben McKenzie is barely over 5'7", maybe he is 5'7.5" on a good day, because even with his big heels he was struggling next to Mischa in flats.
Anna said on 1/Aug/07
I'll agree with a strong 5'10", but what I don't understand is how her height can vary so much in pictures and on screen. For example, in some scenes of The OC she can be wearing flats and Ben can be wearing his special shoes and when Mischa actually stands up straight she is easily 1/2"-1" taller than Ben, which would lead one to believe she would be more like 5'11". However, there are some premiere photos taken of her and Julie Cooper (her real name is escaping me as of now) and Mischa barely looks 2 inches taller than her. Moreover, I remember a scene in the first episode of the second season and Mischa is barefoot and Julie is wearing some huge, stacked heels and Mischa is at least as tall as Julie, maybe even taller than her. It just confuses me. Does it anyone else?
Anonymous said on 1/Aug/07
I agree with Lucy. Mischa is about 174cm or 175. She can't be 177 or Lily Cole and Gemma Ward would not tower over her as they do.
nic said on 17/Jul/07
if you notice in many scenes in the OC when she was in it she would wear ballet pumps even with dresses and ryan would always wear proper shoes even in casual clothes just to add an extra inch or so
glenn said on 16/Jul/07
5-9.5 to 5-10.i studied her long in flats.
lucy said on 16/Jul/07
yehh she's 5'9
i keep seeing mischa wearing huge heels just when shes walking down the street in paparazzi pictures
if she was unconfudent about her height she wouldnt be wearing them or it might mean she wants to be taller~!
no taller than 175cm for mischa id say
felicia said on 11/Jul/07
i met her and she had heels on couldn't tell how high tho she seemed about 2-3 inches shorter than me and i'm 6'0"
lee said on 11/Jul/07
shes 5,9 i kno coz i asked her myself.
i was walking my dog down a street i wont mention.
and she stopd and said he was cute.
im 183 and she was like you make me feel short so i asked her how tall she was and she was like 5.9.
shes really nice.
lucy said on 8/Jul/07
arghh!!! how can you say mischas over 5'10"!! you just need to look at a photto of her with a real 5'10" girl, gemma ward to see that mischa's a lot shorter!!!!!
Anna said on 6/Jul/07
I would say that Glenn is kind of standing up more straight to get closer to Mischa's height and didn't he say that she was slouching in this photo. And according to this website, if he's up to her eyes, that's a 4.5" difference, which would mean Mischa's 6'0.5"+ in these heels. I would say 5'10"/5'10.5" at the very least for her barefoot height.
lucy said on 6/Jul/07
after enlarging the pic showing mischas heels, i can see that they are very high heels and even have a platforum at the bottoms....im 5'9" and if i was wearing those id be over 6" and towering over someones whose 5"8' and slouching aswell

also, mischas pictures with 5'10, 5'11 models gemma ward and lily cole show mischa atleast two inches shorter than both.
mischa is 5'9!!!
lana said on 28/Jun/07

this picture was taken the same day glenn met mischa, and here you can see her shoes and if they are small heels i really don't know what high heels are, in the picture with glenn he is slouching, standing straight up and mischa without these heels they would be the same height 5'8'', the heels are as high as half of mischa's head and on the pic mischa is half a head taller than glenn...
john said on 28/Jun/07
how the hell can you say she's 5'6 to 5'7 when there is a picture above of her and a 5'8 Glen in which she's much taller and wearing only small heels?
sf said on 26/Jun/07
oh mh how can you know that there were bad camera angels???
and in 2004 she was 18 so she wouldn't have grown much at best one inch... vafunculo
Astrid said on 22/Jun/07
Olerika, she's not 5'8". Come ON. Who are you kidding??

I'm a teenage girl and I'm 5'9.75" - seeing as she always slouches and wears flats I'd say she would try to avoid even the slightest exaggeration on her height at all costs.

Most tall women/girls dislike their tallness and will exaggerate DOWN. Take me, for example. Even though my height is CLOSER to 5'10", I still say I'm 5'9". Why? Because it makes me feel more comfortable with myself.

AND regardless as to what the bio she said when she was 18 (I'm guessing '04 - where's the link), she has already said last year that she's 5'9"!!!

Oh and funsized is right, I think she said she was 5'7" when she was 15.... this might have been true, she still could have done growing since then.

Bottom line: she's 5'9.5" at the minimum.
funsized said on 17/Jun/07
and this girl has also once claimed to be 5'7". Talk about seriously downgrading her height. "come on i mean please everyone in showbiz is lying...". That's a pretty grand statement to make. Celebrities are humans with widely varying opinions just like us. Have u ever considered that not every celebrity wants to be taller? I know you've posted pics trying to prove your point. Some of those pics are quite convincing, too, but there are also people that have posted pictures that are also equally convincing and contradict your height speculation of mischa. Naturally, you're going to look for photos that confirm what you said, but the question is, how many photos did u actually go through, and what's the percentage of those that back you up? Of course, the same question goes to the other people posting their photos. I can only really take Glenn's word because, after all, he did see her face to face and has a much better idea as to what her height really is. Even the picture above contradicts what you claim. Then again even glenn himself could be off by 0.5 inches or even 1 inch, but i don't think any more than that.
olerika said on 15/Jun/07
so why shouldn't she lie? nobody can proof if she does! i have an official bio of her where she states herself as 5'8'' and that's exactly her height the bio was written when she was not so famous at all, when she was 18, and no one grows much after age 18, but now she is famous, people admire her also for her height, come on i mean please everyone in showbiz is lying...
funsized said on 14/Jun/07
Well, for one, she is tall enough to be a model, so she doesn't need to add inches to her height for that, it's pointless. That would be like filling an already full bottle of liquid with more liquid. Secondly, according to boo, she stated on TV that she wanted to be shorter. I don't know if that is still not considered reliable enough to you, but that's also not the first time i've heard that she dislikes being tall. I am aware that sources can be unreliable, but i'm not about to go out of my way to try and prove them false, you can do that if you want to. Thirdly, the quote above "At 5 foot 9 I'm a good height for flats". Tell me what girl that wants to be taller would say that? It sounds as if she doesn't like wearing heels because it'll only make her taller. You yourself stated that "most add one inch or so", may be Mischa isn't part of the "most" category. You may argue that she wears high heels, so that defies her statement above, that's true, but i wear high heels too sometimes, not because i like them, but because either the occasion calls for it, or some clothes just look better with them, otherwise, given the chance, i'd wear normal runners any day. I'd imagine with Mischa, many occasions she goes to call for high heels.
olerika said on 13/Jun/07
they want to be tall cause it's an unwritten law that tall women are more beautiful than shorter ones (of course it's not true anyway...), only tall women can be models and models are seen as perfect beautiful women and did you hear her saying it or did you read it somewhere, well you know you can read many stuff which is not true...and hey if she really said that who can say that she didn't lie?
funsized said on 13/Jun/07
female celebrities want to be tall when they're short or average height, not when they're already tall. Mischa is already in the tall range, what could she hope to gain by adding an extra inch to her height? And why would Mischa pretend to be taller than she is if she herself said she wished to be shorter?
olerika said on 12/Jun/07
oh no female celebs want to be tall, most add one inch or so and it cannot be proofed so why not lying? and so far did you looked well at the picture? nope cause brandon is slouching too not like mischa but a bit and well she would be the same height as he is if she would stand straight up or she would maybe be a bit taller, but nevertheless she wears high heels and she is not slouching that much and without heels there is no way she is the same height as brandon!no way look at the picture!!!
boo said on 12/Jun/07
olerika can you not see that mischa is slouching in that picture? her knees are bent and she has a bad posture. It's exactly what Katie holmes does as well, they slouch to make themselves look shorter- also why would she go on record saying she's 5'9? Most female celebs don't like to be too tall. In addition she was also in a series of adds for Channel 4 (UK) where she clearly stated that she wished she was shorter, she's too tall. So there you go.
olerika said on 11/Jun/07
haha idiot the picture with brandon davis, dear astrid, proofs that she can not be as tall as you want her to be, here you can see their shoes, and she wears high heels and is the same height as brandon who 5'9'' so she can not be 5'9'' when she only is 5'9'' with high heels! hahaha so explain that!!!

ah mine are rubbish why? one of astrids pics does not show what shoes mischa is wearing so let me say they are rubbish you!
well i am really interested, why are they rubbish, i mean they are normal pics showing mischa with other persons proofing that she can not be taller than 5'8'' i mean the pic with adam, first you can see that she is wearing high heels and next to adam she is as tall as him so she can not be the same height sfacciato
Piú scemoa non potevi nascere!!!
anna said on 9/Jun/07
Yes, I highly doubt that this jeanna has worked with Mischa. And if you are 5'11" yourself, why would you not be a model? That is huge for a female! Anyways, I have to agree with Astrid, all of his/her photos prove that Mischa has to be more than 5'9.5", I would say 5'10" or 5'10.5" at the shortest, 5'11" at the tallest, maybe slightly more. Because in the first and last photo, Mischa is wearing flats, absolute flats with, like Astrid said, maybe a 1/2" of height. Then, Brody and Mckenzie are wearing tennis shoes, which would mean they would have the same or a little bit more height in the footwear field. And the first photo proves that Mischa is at the very least the same height as Brody, because since the shot was taken from above, she loses height because she is standing in front. So, that would mean she is 5'10.5" to 5'11" seeing as Brody is 5'10.5" on this site. Then, in the last photo with Mckenzie, he is wearing those boot things that he always wears, which probably give him 1.5"-3". That would mean he would be about 5'10" (slightly more, slightly less) in those boots. Seeing as Mischa is basically barefoot, slouching extremely, and still looking as tall as Ben, it would seem to be obvious that she is at least 5'10.5", maybe even pushing 5'11". Absolutely no way 5'9.5". And no offence olerika, but your photos are rubbish. They do not even deserve to be explained.
Anonymous said on 5/Jun/07
I doubt you're a valid IMG model, no one on their site, even in development, are named Jeanna and I doubt even more that they would have a more celebrity rather than model have just a test shoot with another model.
jeanna said on 3/Jun/07
im an img model as well and i have worked with mischa before. I am 5'11 barefoot and when i worked with Mischa at a shoot she was about two inches shorter then me. whoever said that since she has a long torso and that makes her look a lot taller that is true she appears to be a lot taller then she actually is. but so does paris hilton who is 5'8 slim bodies and long proportions will make some look taller
olerika said on 1/Jun/07
well they are the same height at best, but you have not explained my pictures at all so what are about them ha?
Astrid said on 1/Jun/07
In that last link I posted with Mischa next to ben (Click Here).... she's not wearing heels at all! They're flats with only a bit more than a half inch heel at the most! Click the picture and enlarge it to see for yourself.
olerika said on 31/May/07
first mh well i guess she has heels on but not very high ones, second you can not see if she wears high heels, but i am sure she does because she is not as tall as brandon (i've seen other photos with them) and third she has heels on, also not high ones, but if ben woul stand straight up he would be taller than her and now it is you'r turn, explain my pictures!!!!

The best way to estimate somebody´s height is to see the person. Glenn has seen Misha - he says she is around 177-178 cm. I think this is right. Misha really seemsa taller than 175 but not 180 either.
olerika said on 27/May/07
the last one:
what about that, mischa melinda and rachel, melinda is listed at 5'7'' (but people consider her to be shorter...), all wear heels and damm daramm damm...surprise surprise

and what is about this: the first picture shows her alone, but one can see that she wears very high heels

and this one

shows her next to adam and she is nearer at the camera so she is all in all taller or appears taller, you know, objects near at you are taller than those which are away... so by the way adam is the same height like her at the picture and i am sure he does not wear heels, so why is she the same height (5'10.5'' =adam's height), when she wears high heels? so there is NO WAY that she is 5'10'' she is at best 5'8'' (the heels are about 3 inch high )!!!!!
Astrid said on 27/May/07
anonymous, she's already said she's 5'9"... why would she be "a bit above 5'8"? I'm 5'9.75" and I while I'm fine with my height I would never say I'm taller than what I really am.
Mischa Barton = 5'9.5" - 5'10"
Oh and, I consider flat shoes to be slip ons.. usually with a .5" or less of a sole. A shoe with an inch high heel is still a heel.... not a flat shoe.
anonymous said on 27/May/07
she's in fact shorter than listed. she is a bit above 5 foot 8 but is very slim.
glenn said on 26/May/07
she had almost slippers on.
Alex said on 26/May/07
What do you people consider flat shoes? Anything an inch or less of heel?

Glenn, yea she does look around that 5'10 mark, 5'9.5 at the least. You do have plenty of tall girls out there who say they are less than they really are. Its the opposite with guys.
Astrid said on 26/May/07
olerika, if Mischa herself has already said she's 5'9", why would she be 5'7" or 5'8"? Brody is 5'11", by the way.
ss and daria, the links you provided are inaccurate as we can't see the shoes they're wearing.
daria in the picture on your link, Mischa's leaning back, anyway.

I rest my case: 5'9.5" - 5'10" it is.

ciara height is not a factor that affects girls onless they are very tall
over 5'10 . Most guys not care about the girls height aslong the girl is shorter than him . You are about average to a girl , your height is very good most guys will be taller than you .

there is no way that she is taller than adam (5'10''), or even the same height, look at this:

she wears high heels and isnt as tall as adam, so she cannot be 5'10'' or 5'9'', she may be 5'7''-5'8''
Astrid said on 22/May/07
If you click this link you'll see Ben and Mischa kissing (Episode 10, "The Perfect Couple", Season 1).
Mischa's in flats (I'm guessing a .75" increase in height) and Ben's wearing socks, as he kissed her just before he put his dress shoes on.
Click Here
And here's a clearer view of Mischa's flats, you should click the picture once the page loads, otherwise it looks confusing.
Click Here
So if Ben's marked at 5'8" barefoot, if Mischa was 5'11" - 5'11".5" barefoot, she'd be considerably taller than him. I can only see about an inch difference in height (look at their chins!) Either Mischa is shorter than everyone else thinks, or Ben is taller. I think Ben is 5'9" b/f and Mischa is 5'10" b/f.
jenny said on 22/May/07
mhmmm she is only one!!! head taller than rachel bilson and that would make her a bit over 175cm.. she can look taller because she is always wearing high heels. i think 5'9.5 is right.

anna said on 7/May/07
gf: Modeling/acting agencies often change their clients' height to make them more desiarable for the job. For example, in Mischa's case, they would most likely list her shorter than she really is because in the move business, they often want the male to be taller than the female and that can be extremely difficult if your client is 5'11" and a female. I also remember reading somewhere that Mischa's height was downgraded to 5'9" because it would make her the same height as her co-star, Benjamin Mckenzie.
ta said on 5/May/07
I would actually like to see Mischa and Katie Holmes stand next to each other. You have Katie Holmes listed at 5'9" and Mischa at 5'9.5" If anyone saw the pictures at the Giorgio Armani pre-oscar fashion prive, both Mischa and Katie posed separate pictures with Giorgio and both towered over him (both were also wearing about the same size heels). It looks as if Katie seemed slightly taller standing next to him than Mischa did (although it may have possibly been the camera angles of both pictures). Does anyone know of any possible pictures with them standing side by side?
Leung said on 3/May/07
They are likely to be very similar in height but I might give a slight edge to Mischa.
glow said on 3/May/07
I actually would like to see her and Charlize Theron stand next to each other. Both are listed at 177cm and both seem to have poor posture and extremely tall proportions for their height.
gf said on 3/May/07
Modeling agencies often add or knock a half inch or inch off a model's height. This may be due to the fact that our heights changes over the course of the day (we are taller in the morning and shorter at night). That makes me think that perhaps Mischa could be taller than what she claims, but I would find it hard to believe that she's the 5'11 or more that some on here have suggested.
gf said on 3/May/07
Anna: As I posted a while ago, her height at her modeling agency, IMG, is listed as 5'9". I am trying to understand why she would lie about her height, assuming that she is indeed taller than what she claims? I agree that she *often* looks taller than 5'9, but photo angles and body posture can often mislead.
Anonymous said on 25/Apr/07
In a pretty funny visual, in the first season episode of The O.C. titled "Best Chrismukkuh Ever" Mischa and Ben are shopping in the mall. At one point, Mischa puts on high heels, stands straight up, and looks down at the much shorter Ben. Pretty funny (and surprising, due to the amount of effort they go to in order to minimize their height difference) scene:

She's a good ten inches taller than Bilson to me.

Looks about an inch taller than 5'11" (possibly 5'11.5") Adrian Grenier. So if she has a 2 inch advantage with heels, she'd still be at least 5'10".

I think Glenn is right. She's 5'10", possibly 5'11". Anyone saying she's under 5.9.5" is being ridiculous.

If Misha is under 5-10 then you would have to lower Sharapova's height to 6-0.

The heels are not equal - Sharapova heels are like 7 cm, Mischa heels are like 11 cm, so.... I think Misha is really 179-180!
Astrid said on 20/Apr/07
Sorry to spoil your theories, but I just can't picture Mischa being as tall as 5'11"-6'. I mean, it could be true, and I'm all for discussing this for the next month, but I really think Rob needs to reach a finalised decision - especially considering most of us (including Glenn) consider her taller than 5'9". I haven't been on for a while, so I hadn't seen the Mischa/Maria Sharapova picture. But I recognised her Studio 54 heels instantly in the the picture. And these really are "high heels" - we are talking an extra 4", probably greater.
Initially I couldn't find the heels anywhere when I tried Googling... so I went to Mischa-B and looked.... and I found them! :)

1st Picture is the same as the one in my magazine:

I think this time when Mischa says she's 5'9", I don't think she's lying. 5'9.5", probably. 5'9.75", possibly. But is she really taller than that?
Let us know Rob, Glenn, Anna etc

in this picture Click Here next to sharapova(6"1) they are both wearing heals sharapova is full standing up without bending legs and mischa is bending and there about the same height so i'd she's 6ft
Viper said on 9/Apr/07
Misha should convince you guys that Sharapova is 6-1 max.
AAAA said on 8/Apr/07
if sharapova is really a legit 6'2 then you gotta give Misha at least 5'10.5, more like 5'11. She is tall
glenn said on 6/Apr/07
there is no way she is smaller than 5-10.
6'2.5'' JK said on 5/Apr/07
I think she is nothing more than 5'9.5'' as she is listed, 5'10'' is also too much
Viper said on 5/Apr/07
5-11 is just too much. I can definitely buy that shes a solid 5-10 though.
The Horse of FUNK said on 4/Apr/07
By the way, on second look at the OC cast pic, I believe Peter Gallagher is a legit 5'9" (not the 5'10" - 5'11" he's sometimes credited as). But, you can clearly see Mischa is purposely surrendering some height with posture. To me, if she were to straighten out like Gallagher is, she'd be bang on at 5'9.5".

Depending on footwear, I'd say she's 5'9.25" minimum and 5'9.75" maximum. Which means the current 5'9.5" suits just fine for now. Until proven otherwise, I don't know where these 5'11" claims come from for this pretty lady, granted she does look near 5'10" with Glenn. But, then again, I guarantee you if I were to pose with Glenn, you'd swear I'm like 6' - 6'1" when I'm only 5'11.5".

Yet another note about her: Despite being a good looking lady, I've noticed she could use a few cheese burgers. And we all know how tricky thin people can be.
Viper said on 4/Apr/07
I never say this too often on this site but she should probably be upgraded to at least 5-10-5-10 1/2.
glenn said on 4/Apr/07
she was bouncing from party to party and went to her hotel too.so maybe she changed.or had another pair inside her suv vehicle.
glenn said on 4/Apr/07
i didnt think you were horse.
glenn said on 3/Apr/07
i dont understand your sleep comment?
bam said on 3/Apr/07
rob, why don't you upgrade her?
Glenn believes she is between 5'10 and 5'11.5. I'm pretty sure his picture reaffirms that. I do admit that a 5'9 girl can come across as a giant, since 5'9 girls are nearly eye to eye with an average height 5'9/10 guy. At 5.5 inches taller than the national average, Mischa Barton is the equivalence of a 6'3.5 guy. (which is already a giant). In barton's case however, she may be a true 5'10, or even a weak 5'11. Maybe I'm wrong. She is definately hard to pin down.
Bombay Rocker said on 2/Apr/07
And if mischa is like 178 or maybe 179 then Ben Mckenzie is atmost 172, maybe even 171, no shorter than that or else he will look like a shortie which he doesnt look anyways, so maybe ben is 171 - 172, mischa is like 178 and ya that will mean that adam brody is a max 179 and rachel bilson maybe 5 feet 1 and this is what she looks anyways
Bombay Rocker said on 2/Apr/07
Pretty confusing....in that megan gale pic......if that chic megan gale is 180 cms, ya Rob Mischa has bigger heels and i think that slouching is almost equal and megan is definitely taller. If this all is true then 177 - 178 is spot on. Anyways Rob do u think she will have any upgrade in near future since almost 80% people here believe she is about 5 feet 11...whats ur take...U think this is what her max height is or she can be a lil taller than this in future...ist all pretty confusing
Franco said on 2/Apr/07
screw you all....she's 5'10 flat ;)
jess said on 31/Mar/07
i think mischa is 5-10 to 5-11.
she's def. not under 5-9. i hate her slouching, it does'nt even make her look shorter.
AAAA said on 31/Mar/07
How can Maria Sharapova be over 6'2 when she is smaller than a hair under 6'2 Andy Roddick. She can't be much over 6'1. I mean she is TALL. Have you ever met a woman who is 6 feet or over. The always seem taller than they are. I've seen volleyball players at my school who looked almost 3 inches taller than they really are. It's strange but it is true. I see 5'11 for misha barton
Viper said on 29/Mar/07
Sharapova doesnt look 6-2 next to measured athletes such as 6-2 3/4 Terrell Owens. I give her 6-1 Max. Misha looks 5-11 with her.
Bombay Rocker said on 29/Mar/07
She is very tall, I would say she is about 182 - 183. A friend of mine has met her and he is a full 175 , sometimes can be 176 at night. He said she was wearing small heels like 3 - 4 cm but was still more than 3 inches taller. Big upgrade needed, Rob man, u know it thats for sure coz i can understand if you can be wrong with like one inch but i think this one is more thna 2 inches.I just saw an episode of The oc and u guys are right ben is a max 174, most probably 173 and she is absolutely taller than him by more than 1.5 inches and she virtuall is barefoot, i mean look at her flats, they aren't flats, they are ultra ultra flats and he still wears 2 inch shoes which might have lifts (not sure)
Viper said on 29/Mar/07
I see Sharapova at 6-1. Misha could be just 2 inches shorter.
Joy said on 28/Mar/07
I'm a 18 year old Female I have the same length of Misha, I fell very bad because every one is shorter than me. I wish I was 160cm but I am 176cm. But still I like Misha she is how she is because I thing she is perfect!!!!
glenn said on 28/Mar/07
hard to imagine she is 6ft.but its very possible.a hair under 5-11 at the least.
Carry said on 28/Mar/07
I do not really think that Misha is 6 ft. Uma always looks taller. I think Misha is around 179-180, Uma is exactly 183 cm - nothing less than that.
glenn said on 27/Mar/07
i only see a 3 inch difference at the most. mischa is for sure 5-11ish.cause maria is at least 6-3.so maybe uma and her are the same height,its just i see uma in bigger heels.
glenn said on 26/Mar/07
barton could be 5-11.6ft sounds to much.uma is close enough to 6ft.
glenn said on 26/Mar/07
uma is about an incher taller.so uma at 5-11.5.and barton at 510.5.
Goldberg said on 25/Mar/07
Is Maria Sharapova the tallest girl ever seen next to Mischa?
glenn said on 25/Mar/07
no,misha,actually im not one for stress.im slowly expanding,thank you.
glenn said on 25/Mar/07
wow.no wonder i look so short next to her.sharapova was pegged at 6-3 by my 6ft friend when he saw her.very nasty she is.
Goldberg said on 25/Mar/07
yes but in that picture i can't see her footwear...maybe Mischa is in heels and Maria in flats or both in flats but Mischa on tip toes! for sure Mischa is very tall,about 180 and no less,but you must admit that Maria is(much)taller than her. Do you still disagree? in the picture you can see that Maria is also a lot "bigger",with longer legs and much larger shoulders....proves that there's an important height difference between Maria and Mischa! I think Mischa with high heels is almost as tall as Maria barefoot.
Goldberg said on 25/Mar/07
there's a picture of Mischa next to maria Sharapova who looks much taller. I think Mischa on tip toes would be still shorter than Maria barefoot...what do you think? anna,what's your opinion?
misha said on 24/Mar/07
Glenn, thank you, I was correct after all. I misinterpreted a comment about location you'd made earlier. Have you ever thought about opening a similar enterprise here in Southern California? And, yes, the paparazzi are like rotting filth clogging a sewer drain - they're out of control and they're everywhere. You must have a high tolerance of pain.
glenn said on 24/Mar/07
my place of business is the streets of midtown manhattan.
misha said on 23/Mar/07
Glenn, nothing to do with lovely elegant Mischa, whom I'm willing to give as much as 5'11.5" to, but where is your place of business? How could I have misread things so badly to think it was New York?
glenn said on 23/Mar/07
i have little respect for them.they tell me to get out of the way.f*** off.
The Horse of FUNK said on 22/Mar/07
Paparazzi must be a pain in the ass for everybody, even for people in Glenn's field. I was watching those Britney Spears videos where she flips out on the paparazzi. Even though she's still a nutty woman, I can kinda understand why she flips out like that. The way they stand in front of the car and snap like 20 photos in a second would drive a lot of us nuts.
glenn said on 22/Mar/07
yes misha,around 5-11.she can be tough to get.she came out of this hotel that had an even and looked around nervously.i immediately put her at ease and said," there are no photographers,just us 2,can we get photos with you?"she obliged.
gf said on 22/Mar/07
She's listed as 5'9 at her agency IMG models (see: "England")
misha said on 22/Mar/07
Glenn, you look smitten by Cupid's arrow - would I love to trade places with you! She is a rare beauty who stands out as quite special in a world full of pretty faces. I'm curious about your impressions of her and the conditions under which the photo was taken. She looks quite happy to be with you. Also, I can't believe she's only 5'9.5" (not based exclusively on this photo, where her heel lift is an unknown to me, but based on a number of comparative photos). Something around 5'10.5" - 5'11" feels right to me - what do you think?
glenn said on 10/Mar/07
your not kidding anna.imagine what i deal with.
glenn said on 10/Mar/07
small heels.she is more than a few inches on me.
Astrid said on 10/Mar/07
Mischa can't be "5'8 exactly", she's already said she's 5'9", and most of us agree she is at least that tall. What sort of shoes was she wearing in that picture, Glenn? She looks around 3 inches taller than you in your pic.

I am 5'9.75", and I own Keds myself and they are definitely flat soled. Which is pretty much why I wear them most of the time. (:

Stop slouching Mischa!!!!! >:[
glenn said on 9/Mar/07
yes,anna.a few of us are making sense.misha is clearly embarressed by her growth spurt.
glenn said on 8/Mar/07
who are these guys posting? did you ever meet her? do you see my photo proof? photo of her and i? she is 5-10 minimum.possibly 5-11.
jamaican trudy said on 7/Mar/07
and listen, i am sorry to bust your bubbles about this, but mischa is 5'8 exactly. look into it a bit and you'll see.
jamaican trudy said on 7/Mar/07
anonymous you speak trash. converse and vans have about .25 inch soles. they give absolutely no height whatsoever. they are the most honest sneaker in the world in that regard. get a pair of nike jordans or timberlands, then you will see what i am talkiong about. and yes, i have tried on KEDS.
Anonymous said on 7/Mar/07
Converse/Vans (the shoes that Adam wears on the show) give one a lot more height than the shoes Mischa has to wear, I have both so I would know. Also, in teh pictures that I posted, the camera angles are good and it is easy to see that Mischa is slightly taller than Adam, how is it not? When I look at them she looks about 1/2" taller than Adam, making her around 5'11"-5'11.5".
Astrid said on 7/Mar/07
I have to disagree anna. I just don't think she'd be taller than Adam Brody. Even though she slouches in The O.C, Adam wears Converse nearly all the time on the show, and Mischa is almost always in flats. Surely she isn't 5'11" +. 5'9.75" seems to be accurate.

Proof that Ben wears shoe lifts, because he is as tall as Adam Brody! Also is Mischa slouching, because she is shorter than both of them in that pic. It doesn't make any sense.

Leung said on 4/Mar/07
Good points Ara. Perhaps on The O.C. the producers told Mischa to be aware that she needs to look shorter, thus the flats and bad posture. But it was annoying because when Mischa slouches I think it is unattractive and makes her look self lacking in confidence. It’s much better when Mischa stands up straight with good posture, she looks way sexy then.
Goldberg said on 4/Mar/07
anna, can you find a picture that shows (if is true) that Mischa is a full head taller than Rachel? in your opinion what's the difference in cm?
Celina said on 3/Mar/07
i think she's 5'9....and ben is like 5'7 5'8...Click Here
Ara. said on 3/Mar/07
I'm 5'11 barefoot, and I'm in flats 24/7 yet people often think I'm 6'1 or something. Looks can be deceiving, it's all about the way you wear your height, I stand up straight, shoulders back and no slouching. My 6ft friend looks a lot shorter than me because his knees are always bend. Anyways I think Mischa is at least 5ft 10,5 and if I were famous I'd downgrade my height too, because yeah, being tall sucks.
Goldberg said on 2/Mar/07
Is she a entire head taller than Rachel Bilson in your opinion?
Leung said on 1/Mar/07
Mischa seems a little uncomfortable with her height. Mischa is a tall and sexy woman, she should walk tall and wear heels if she wants to and be confident in herself.
Goldberg said on 1/Mar/07
what's her shoe size?
Editor Rob said on 1/Mar/07
And then in 2006 Harpers, "At 5 foot 9 I'm a good height for flats."
Editor Rob said on 1/Mar/07
Here was her full quote in 2005, "I can't wear heels on the show, because I'm [5 feet 8 inches tall]. The other actors are so much shorter than me, even the boys -- except Adam [Brody]. But I'm happy to wear flats."
london calling = said on 27/Feb/07
at most mischa should be upgraded to 5'10. in one of the photos with ben mckenzie and adam brody, the boys are slightly slouched over. mishcas only been slightly taller than mckenzie and she wears VERY flat shoes and he wears chunky boots so at most there is a one and a half inch difference and hes listed here as 5'8...actually 5'9 1/2 sounds pretty accurate.
Mark said on 20/Feb/07
Mischa is I believe 6ft. tall.
OC fan said on 15/Feb/07
I don't know how tall she is now, but I do think she was being honest when she said she was 5'7" back in 2001. Here's a photo I found of Mischa with 5'6" Piper Perabo and 5'9" Jessica Pare at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. All of them wearing snow boots.

Anna out of curiosity may I ask how tall do you think is the main cast of the OC? That would consist of Barton, Gallagher, Rowan, Mckenzie, Bilson, Clarke and Brody.
WavyDavyGravy said on 14/Feb/07
Met her last week. She is at least 5ft 11.5
Alex said on 12/Feb/07
Glenn, funny she says 5'7 then 5'8 while she's easily 5'9 and possibly closer to 5'10. Some girls who want to be shorter than they really are will say they're 1-3 inches shorter than they really are.
Stephanie said on 4/Feb/07
She's gotta be 5' 10" barefoot, 5' 11" in shoes, and like 6' 1" or something in heels. Glenn is 5' 8" and Mischa is way taller than he is!
Alex said on 31/Jan/07
She is a strong 5'9, possible she's 5'9.5.
Markus said on 30/Jan/07
She looks slightly taller than Liv in that pic.
Why do taller girls always say they're shorter? I dated a 6'2" girl one day (barefeet), who said she's 6 feet...she almost gave me neckcramps...
Lika said on 30/Jan/07
Yes, she is really 178 I guess.
Look! Mischa with Liv Tyler.

the girl looks atleast 5'10-6'0, wow im lucky im 6'1!!!
Glenn said on 30/Jan/07
She was 6ft or near it in footwear.5-10 minimum barefoot.theres a chance even more as anna says.Im bad at judgeing womens height,but I know what a 5-8,5-9 girl looks like in any heels.I dated them.
Viper said on 29/Jan/07
She does seem to be 5-9 minimum, 5-10 Max.
Diandra said on 28/Jan/07
I think Mischa is about 5'9", she has really long legs.
Manu said on 28/Jan/07
minimum 5'9.She looks too tall,but still gorgeous.
Crissy (RKOchick) said on 28/Jan/07
mf, only her shoulders are slouched which wouldn't give anymore height than maybe a half and inch. I think 5'8-5'9 is pretty accurate
Cliff said on 28/Jan/07
Mischa is 5ft10 barefoot. Comparing her next to Liv Tyler and Claudioa Schiffer, she couldn't be anyhting less than this. She is also an inch or so taller than Peter Gallagher.
mf said on 28/Jan/07
Without knowing her footwear, the picture clearly shows that she's standing a good 3 inches taller than Glenn. She is also sloughing over which would make her even taller. Then there's the real possibility that she's bending her legs. This is something that a lot tall women do to mask their height. Substract two inches heels from her leg bending and slouching and we're looking at height of approximately 5'10. I don't know if I'd go higher than that (given how she stands with other 5'10ers, which is usually about the same, give or take a half inch), although there is a possibility that she's taller. I wouldn't go any shorter, though.
