Olivia Wilde's Height
5ft 7 (170.2 cm)
American actress best known for roles in movies such as TRON:Legacy, Cowboys & Aliens and The Change Up. On television she is well known for House and The O.C. ThompsonHotels had a brochure with a nice description of Olivia: "Wilde, 22, a formidable beauty with a 5-foot-7 frame, goddess bone structure, and hypnotic, feline eyes."
. Her agency also listed her at that mark.

The average guess justifies the listing!

I saw the lovely Olivia in “The Lazarus Effect’’ the other day and she played a young medical student. She was, along with her colleagues, experimenting on reviving coma victims, but they take things a trifle far and raise a dead dog, hence the title “The Lazarus Effect “, Lazarus being the only person Jesus Christ brought back from death.*
When her and her team have their equipment confiscated, they still have the insane “recipe” and then, while trying to revive another dead dog, Olivia is killed by an electric shock. Predictably, the guys and one other girl use it on Olivia, and it works, but when scanning her brain, it is shown that 100% of her brain lights up, whereas with the majority of humans, only 10% is used. She now has powers of psychokinesis, telepathy and a whole lot more besides. She reports having been dead for years, having experienced a Hell of her nastiest experience as a child, when she caused a fatal fire.
Furthermore, she has come back resentful and evil.
As soon as I had finished the film, I looked online to see if there was a follow-up to this, because the film ended in such a way that you’d expect it to continue. Olivia is a shorter member of the cast, but there aren’t really any shrimps in the movie! I’ve seen enough of her in “House” lately to believe that 5ft7 is correct for Olivia! 😄💐
* Lazarus was the brother of Martha and Mary, both women of whom were present at Jesus’s crucifixion.

I missed the anniversary of Olivia's birth yesterday, but it's not too late to wish her a Belated Happy Birthday; let's hope the elegant young lady had a fabulous 36th!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Mar/20
There's a poor old - well not so old at all! - artist in 'House' today and Olivia is the second person to have given the guy a bloody nose - for grabbing her!
The first time was when he painted a truly awful depiction of someone's attractive wife! Now the guy is lying in a hospital bed - and his hair is growing out red! House and the team have their work cut out with this one! What could be causing the red hair? The team say hormones, but how about an access of iron in his blood?
This is quite a conundrum!
Olivia gets 5ft7. 😁💐
Shelby BBB said on 24/Feb/20
No way is she 5 ft 7 in. I just saw her and stood near her at the Nordstrom celebrity grand opening. I’m 5ft 9in tall and I had on flat boots and she had heels on and I was way taller than her. If she was that height then she should have at least been as tall as me or taller with her heels. She looked very tiny but she is beautiful. I’m always surprised when I see a celebrity how much shorter they are in real life compared to how they look on the screen and what they claim their height is

As listed 5'7".
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jan/19
I just missed Olivia marching onto Ellen's stage (DeGeneres's, who else would it be? 😉), but I know Olivia well enough to be able to agree that 5ft7 fits the bill for her.
She is wearing a silver skirt and a Rolling Stones T-Shirt, and her hair is swept back from her face. Now Olivia is chatting about her two kids, a boy and a girl, Daisy, who tells everybody with a serious face that she's three instead of two! The deception starts young these days, it would seem! 😂😂😂
MAD SAM said on 3/May/18
No doubt she’s 170 cm, infant might be 171 cm too ! She’s smoking hot btw

@ BilboBaggins - Square jawlines are uniquely attractive! Jodie Foster is another one, and she's beautiful too!
Must go now! I'm watching your young nephew on my telly; 'The Lord of the Rings' is on!
BilboBaggins said on 20/Apr/18
Squarest jawline I've seen in a while, Christ. She does look about 5' 7" though.
Yht said on 14/Apr/18
@Anonymous Maybe because her torso is long?
As listed 5'7
Peter said on 12/Sep/17
This is a website for height, not your individual opinions on the attractiveness of women. If you'd like it to be, perhaps post a picture of yourself as well so we can get a comparison between you and Olivia Wilde. I wonder if you would hold up.
Relevant content: she does seem shorter because of her body proportions, I stood beside her at a screening this week and around 170cm seems correct. She's very slender, but not exactly leggy.
Mary said on 17/Aug/17
Tree trunk thighs. Holy smokes home girl has thick legs.
Mary said on 17/Aug/17
Doubt she's this tall. She is a "butth-body." She has a beautiful face but... come on its beautiful neck up and then 10 year old brother next down.
Peter175 said on 4/Jun/17
Clearly not 5'6 range.
I agree with Google on this one for once. She is a strong 171. A sub170 woman would not look that tall next to other women, she's at least 1 and a half standard deviations above average female height
Nik said on 21/May/17
I agree with HomestSlovene in that 5'6.75" - 5'7" is a fair call for her height!
Marquis said on 10/Mar/17
She may actually be her officially listed 5'7". Her short legs throw a lot of ppl off.
Oh, and for any arguers... Wilde herself has remarked on her short legs. So, fact, not opinion. Extremely lovely woman regardless.
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Feb/17
Last night I actually got round to watching a film called 'The Lazarus Effect', starring Olivia Wilde.
The film had been festering away under my bed with a couple of broken cat bowls, but was retrieved at long last after about 4 months!
Had I known how uniquely interesting it would be, I'd have watched it ages ago! It's about a bunch of young scientists who work on a method of bringing comatosed patients out of their catatonic states, but then decide to experiment on a dead dog!
I think you can guess that the next candidate is of the human variety! Yes, it's Olivia, and the role gave her an excellent opportunity to show us her acting skills to the full! She was brilliant, possessing all the traits of a scheming, conniving demon! In fact, the ending left more than enough scope for a fantastic sequel.
I did notice that Olivia was kind of small model-girl height or just below, but I have seen her in other things, including 'House', of course, so I knew how she compared to Mr Hugh Laurie!
I will go along with 5ft7 - of utter perfection! 👌😇
Nova176 said on 6/Feb/17
She legit has the legs of a 5'2" woman
HonestSlovene said on 7/Jan/17
I agree with Cranberries that she is overrated like most celebs but she is still reasonably attractive. 8/10. As for her height, she looks 5'7 or a tad less.
said on 19/Aug/16
rob are you sure she isnt a 171cm istead of 170cm?
Editor Rob: at times she can look a decent 5ft 7er, so I wouldn't rule out the chance a little over 170
said on 22/Jan/16
Same height as Viola Davis: about 5'5.5"?
Editor Rob: she might be a little bit nearer, but viola could pass for 5ft 6
Irregular Contributor said on 29/Dec/15
Her legs don't look particularly short. Nicely shaped legs as well. I agree she doesn't have the leg length of Stacy Keibler, but I mean, are her legs being short rally that noticeable? In any case, she has always looked a solid 5'7", never 5'3" or whatever people keep on repeating.
M said on 13/Aug/15
@Fray "Her and Alessandra Ambrosio " It has to be written "She and A.Ambrossion" . Where do you come from?
fray said on 6/Aug/15
She's a strong 5'7". Her and Alessandra Ambrosio have similar builds (longer torso), which make them seem shorter than their actual height.
said on 25/Apr/15
Olivia Wilde cannot really be 5'7, if we assume that Emmy Rossum is 5'6.5, as listed here on celebheights.com
Emmy IS taller than Olivia, as can be seen in the pictures below:
Note that Olivia's heels are huge.
Judd said on 23/Sep/14
5'6" in my opinion
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 6/Aug/14
I have the same bodytype as you cole and kinda like Olivia..
Long torso.. Big armspan.. Short legs.. Very muscular... Bad posture
I'm always underbilled most usually 5'9 but sometimes people call me 5'8 LOL
I've even been referred to by a guy who's 5'6ish as " he is my height " LOLOL
The guy in fact is barely reaching my eyelevel.. I'm 5'11 ...
Sam said on 28/Jul/14
Even though she seems to have gotten a more of her fathers genes in the face, she's still a really attractive woman. I agree that based on build she seems tall but is just above average, not especially tall.
SK said on 2/Mar/14
Agree with Emily. Wow. Olivia's short legs definitely make her look shorter than 5'7". I assumed she was around 5'4" and that she was 5'7" with heels on. Her legs are not only short for her height, but they're also thick for her overall frame. Not everyone can have great legs, but I expected her to have a better body than this. If you look at her torso only, she looks like she would be thin and willowy, but her lower body is another story. She has stunning eyes and looks great in close-up photos for that reason, but her very square jaw makes her look harsh and masculine at times.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/14
He had a very strange perception of women!!!
said on 24/Jan/14
LOL, the hotter the girl is the more Cranberries is likely to complain....
[Editor Rob: cranberries was a tall troll, he got blocked for some insulting comments.]
said on 17/Jan/14
Rob how tall do her parents look to you? Click Here
The mother to me looks about 5'9" and father 6'2" range? No idea where she got her looks from, but a lot of very good looking people don't have particularly good looking parents!
[Editor Rob: about those ranges seem a good shout.]
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jan/14
Can look 5'8", soooo smoking hot it's ridiculous......
(S)aint said on 13/Nov/13
she is my #1 women haha. I thought she was taller then 5'7" but I can live with 5'7" as a low.
Emily said on 30/Sep/13
She's a good example of how proportions can fool your eye when guessing height. Her weirdly short legs make her look shorter than she is.
anon said on 5/Sep/13
I think Emma stone is 5'5 and Olivia is 5'6
Nelly said on 2/Sep/13
She is tiny! I'd say 5'0 to 5'2. She came into the place I worked and I was standing behind a counter that has a slightly elevated floor, maybe 2". I'm just barely 5'4 and she was a lot shorter than me. She is much tinier in person than she looks on screen/photographs. And she was jaw droppingly stunning. Absolutely gorgeous.
said on 2/Sep/13
OC, those are angle shots which doesn't prove much. Maybe this site will showa better example:
said on 31/Aug/13
Looks abut 2 inches taller than 5' 5" Ashley Greene and also 5' 5" Alicia Silverstone.

cole said on 28/Jun/13
She has weirdly short legs, but I guess everybody can't have long legs. I'm 5'11 and my calves are sometimes the same length as someone 5'8-5'9, my torso and arms on the other hand, resembles someone 6'1-6'2. My armspan is 189 cm, that's pretty strange, right? As for Olivia's height, I have no doubts she'd measure 5'7 despite her short legs.
Ras said on 25/Jun/13
5'7 is the equivalent of 6'0 on a man, so yeah, not extremely tall but if you consider 6'0 for a man tall then 5'7 for a woman should be tall, so if that's the case this girl is indeed tall.
Silent d said on 22/Jun/13
Big forehead but she is stunning. She has a well proportioned body.I wouldn't say weird. Not everyone can have long legs. 170cm.
Anna said on 31/May/13
170cm looks about right for Olivia, she usually does edge out other females in photos.
little sue said on 6/May/13
Medeline I mean a long torso compared to their leg length, Kiera Knightley a good expample, long slim body but legs short in comparison, it works the opposite of course, Tina Turner had short body and long legs
Madeline said on 4/May/13
@littlesue you know some people have a longer torso then legs right?
Anton said on 23/Apr/13
170 cm sounds about right. How can anyone think Mila Kunis is attractive when there are actresses like Olivia Wilde appearing on our screens? Tall, strong symmetrical jaw line, demure facial features, husky voice, seemingly well-read/relatively intelligent (the first 'celebrity' I know of who has used the word 'cognizant' at all, let alone in the correct context :P) and a perfect, toned body. No one looks like her, especially outside of Hollywood, *sighs wistfully*.
Shelly said on 14/Mar/13
5' 4" is the average height for a woman (in the US), not 5' 5" or 5' 6".

cranberries sounds jealous indeed...olivia's face is flawless

ai says on 19/Nov/12
shes about 5'7, and no 5'7 isnt extrememly tall. considering the fact that 5'5/5'6 is average
Not in the US/UK, 5'3.5"-5'4.5" pretty much covers the female average for all ages 20+.
Elizabeth said on 25/Nov/12
I don't see how she can be 5'7. Her arms and legs are very, very short. She looks about 5'2-5'3.

@Cranberries: short legs or not, she is fit!

She does have very short girls. I know a girl that´s 5´10, and her waistline is lower than that of her 5´11 boyfriend.

lol, she's super hot, Cranberries is blind.
5'7 is good.
John said on 2/Nov/12
Cranberries....Olivia Wilde is a 9/10+ She is incredibly hot. And you are like a 4/10. I remember your pictures. Please, get a clue before posting rubbish like this.
If you need to work out your anger towards pretty women, please do it in a therapists office not here.
Silent d said on 22/Oct/12
She is taller than jennifer garner who is listed as 171cm on this site. Weird. Maybe camera angle.s Cranberries that is so harsh. You cannot compare her to snooki. I don't see the ugly side. Maybe i'm not that shallow. I would love to meet her. You are out of your mind. Hot! 5 foot 7.
Karme said on 27/Sep/12
She has short legs, i'd prefer being 150 with long legs besides this.
said on 27/Sep/12
I worry about you Cranberries lol. You think Olivia and Christina Hendricks are mingers, but I find them super sexy. Click Here
she's more than just hot!! And if she is 5 ft 7 perfect height for a woman too. Not remotely masculine, exotic and alluring most certainly. Excuse me I need to take a cold shower...
Shaun said on 27/Sep/12
Are her legs even short at all? Extremely short legs would be Josh Brolin. Looks at the pics of her in that grey jumper and poncho she looks drop dead gorgeous to be. Only flaw I can see is her nose..
said on 27/Sep/12
Couldn't give a rat's ass about her height but Click Here
She looks ridiculously hot. I give her 10 out of 10. She defines sexy!
Sarah said on 14/Sep/12
I too have met Olivia in april, and she's about 5'7.5
Ace said on 15/Aug/12
She does not remotely resemble an oompa-loompa Cranberries. First off, she is far from a butter-body, and while she has a moderately masculine jaw, it if anything just makes her more striking in terms of exotic features.
You are certainly in the minority if you would only rank her a 6 out of 10.
As for her height, she is an easy 5'7.
Silent d said on 23/Jan/12
Cranberries and eli you are out of your mind. She is really hot. 5 foot 7. Nothing masculine about her. I guess you don't like tall girls. She is tops.
bt said on 28/Dec/11
don't forget daniel craig's shoes also give him another inchor so.. making him 5-11ish.
i say 5-7 for olivia wilde is pretty accurate.
Martyr said on 12/Dec/11
Ford never over 5'11? Some people are just crazy...
Jake T. said on 5/Dec/11
Zoe Saldana is only a fraction smaller than Olivia so this listing is fine. She is 5'7.
Cranberries said on 20/Nov/11
Very short legged, slightly masculine body; face is large, bony, and not especially youthful-looking; she can make a good first impression but she's no more than a 6/10.
Oh, and about her height, 5'6" max.
Petrus said on 19/Nov/11
She's 5'6" and Ford was never more than 5'11"
Jessica said on 14/Nov/11
Goliath what makes you think that? Maybe shes confident and doesnt care about such a stupid thing as height, and most girls dont want supertall guys. My friends prefer guys between 5'7 - 6'0 =)
Goliath said on 17/Oct/11
She's probably 5 - 7 1/2 out of bed. 5- 7 evening.
She's dating an Italian film maker Ruspoli is his name, he's 5-9 tops. I always imagined Olivia would date a 6-0 or 6-1 guy.
lol.. said on 16/Sep/11
@John Yeah it is over average but I still don't think it's super tall. A lot of people don't consider someone being "tall" until they're 5'8 so super tall would be around 5'10 probably, but I don't know it's all a matter of opinion I guess.
John said on 5/Sep/11
@lol.. 5'7 is over average, average is 5'3
lol.. said on 4/Sep/11
@wyomingcrazy101 why would you be kidding about your height? it's not super tall or anything i'm around 5'7 too and i'm only around 14, you just probably had an early growth spurt and your height will barely grow from there.
Eli said on 25/Aug/11
shes got a pair of tree trunk legs,ugly bod but impeccable face

5'7 and hot as hell, she's like a straight version of Kristanna Loken.

harrison ford hunch could make himself look 5ft9.25-5ft10 nowadays. i belive 5ft11 if he manage to stand straight up. 6ft1 was funny. olivia is a tall girl , 5ft7 sounds right. ;)
Ryan said on 12/Aug/11
True Bradley but Harrison Ford is said to be 6'1" so idk. Good picture too.
said on 12/Aug/11
In this picture, Olivia seems shorter than Daniel Craig (who is listed at 5'10") even with killer heels: Click Here
Ryan said on 10/Aug/11
I just saw her on the tonight show and when she hugged Jay Leno She was a little taller in my opinion. So, judging by that she would need to be wearing 4 inch heels to be his height and atleast 5 inch heels to be one inch taller than him. Since Jay Leno is 5'11"
Tom said on 25/Jul/11
I met her in New York after a performance of an Off-Broadway play she was starring in some years ago. I'd say 5'7" is about right. She was very nice, by the way.
wyomingcrazy101 said on 23/Jun/11
I thought she was taller but now that I look it seems 5' 7"- 5' 8" is tops. What I think is weird is I'm 11 and I'm 5' 7" so I just usually assume everyone older than me is taller like most kids but hey! That's not the case here. No I'm not kidding about my height.
said on 20/Jun/11
I just found this pic of her standing (almost) next to Megan Fox (who once mentioned in an interview that she's 5'4).
If you look closely you can see that Olivia is wearing heels with a slight plateau. So is Megan. So I think the heels might be the same height (about 5inches is normal for common plateau heels). Assuming the heels are the same height it looks like Olivia is about 2.5 or 3 inches taller than Megan which would make her 5'6.5 - 5'7. By the way, she looks absolutely gorgeous.
page.l said on 29/May/11
@tron Average height for women in UK IS 5'5 and men is 5'10, America is about the same. 5'1 is average in some of the third world countries and asia. However I think 5'7 still earns the right to be called tall:)
signit said on 2/May/11
she looked three inches shorter than 5'9 omar epps in house.
sparrow said on 26/Apr/11
Yes, her legs are rather short, but still I feel they look great. And check House MD episodes - wearing heel shes almost as tall as 5'10 Omar Epps
said on 19/Apr/11Click Here
Look at this pic, those look like the legs of a 5'4 girl; however, I do believe she is taller than that, but those are oddly short legs for someone 5'7. Maybe she's uniquely proportioned.
Adam said on 19/Apr/11
I agree with woopidoo, I never thought that she was that tall. She always looked like she had short limbs to me, watch Tron again there are a few full body shots and her legs and arms look short for 5'7. And don't refer to magazine glamour shots they are all photoshoped.
liz said on 30/Mar/11
looks 5'5 tops
Spanish man said on 19/Feb/11
Absolutly agree with feris. Sure that are girls of 5,7 to 5,10. But they are the 10% off all girls at the best. 5,5/5,6 is a great height for a woman.
feris said on 25/Jan/11
unless you live in a world of models 5f7 is tall for a girl, average is more like 5f3-5f5.
steve said on 13/Jan/11
from what I've seen 5'4 to 5'7 is average for girls. calling 5'7 tall is like calling a c grade brilliant.
TruebloodFan said on 4/Jan/11
I've just seen Tron: Legacy. 5ft7 flat seems correct.

5' 9" is too tall for her and is well above "that tall".
She's 5' 7" tops.

im 5'7 1/2 and olivia is my name and i am 14. olivia wilde does not look that tall.
i would say she is about 5'9
Spanish man said on 27/Dec/10
Sorry but in Tron Legacy she is much shorter than Garret in hells of 10/12cm (Garret normal shoes). She´s not 1,70. Well, the truth is than i´m not sure but she is 5,7 MAX. Nothing more.

She's a strong 5' 7".
Joe257 said on 15/May/09
Olivia Wilde certainly has a beautiful and long neck. Is it me or do all women above 5'6" have a "Miss Universe long" neck? Can men have a long neck like that? Contrast Olivia's neck with Glenn's to see what I'm talking about, they are about the same height but her neck is much longer.
jesse said on 7/Jan/09
shes so fine..... i was gonna guess 5-7ish, haha glenn its good u made this site but in that i think ud have different facial expression being next to such a fine woman eh??

Totally agree with Glenn, she seems to be always wearing very high-heeled shoes.

nightfox said on 18/Sep/07
I have to admit, I actually find this site very interesting, but I do notice that a lot of the time people forget about women wearing heels in most pictures and even some guys wearing lifts in hollywood. Most of these girls go to sleep in heels :), I rarely ever see them in flats, besides Mischa Barton or girls who REALLY are tall, most of the girls in heels are short to average height, not as tall as everyone thinks.
