How tall is Peta Wilson

Peta Wilson's Height

5ft 9 (175.3 cm)

Australian actress, best known for TV Series La Femme Nikita and films The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Superman Returns. In a 1998 Yahoo chat she commented on her height, saying "I'm only 5'10". But I try to walk like a six-footer. It's not a problem. Stand up straight." Her modelling agency had her listed at 176.5cm. In this photo I had about 1/3rd inch more sneaker than her.

I was an athlete I played net ball. I used to hide my height from my opponents, so they'd never know how tall I was. I'd keep that extra inch or two up my sleeve. Height's a good thing. I like to look a man in the eye. And if I can't, I put on heels.

No more than 174cm at night.She's barely the same as Rob with less shoes.

This is a very believable listing!

This pretty random celeb may exceed the quoted height!

Rob she looks very similar to your height. The most I could see her being taller than you in this photo is .25 inches and that is generous. If your shoes are .4 inches taller, then that would make her around a half inch taller than you. I look at you as 5 ft 8.25, so I could see her being 5 foot 8.75.
Editor Rob
yes J.Lee, she probably is at most 5ft 9 in reality, I think she did look taller than jenny this day, but really her 5ft 10 claim is just an inch too much.

Glad to see Peta Wilson standing next to you, Rob. This beautiful and elegant lady makes no bogus height claims, although in her case (due to her bone structure) she could 'support' a higher height claim (for instance, up to 5ft11). I bet Taylor Swift would never dare stand next to Peta Wilson. I would suggest a downgrade for Taylor Swift. There's not an argument in the world which could confirm that ridiculous 5ft10 height claim.

5 ft 8.75 in is better for her than a strong 5 ft 9 in, i think...

176 cm exactly in this picture!! This is only a bit taller than 5ft 9!!
J.J. said on 23/Jan/12
5'9" for her looks absolutely right as her head tips slightly above your hair! Perhaps should could be waking up at nearer 5'10" I suppose
steven said on 18/Jan/12
in reality i bet strong 5'9 for her. maybe 176cm morning.

hmmm...hard to tell, but with standing perfectly straight (and with a footwear advantage?) she really doesn't give a taller impression than 5-10.5 Stuart Townsend(second from left) in this pic.

As listed, the slouch.

Well unless she hid her 3-4cm of height here with poor posture or something, I can't see her being 176-178cm. There was just no way. She might be counting her height with heels on. She is clearly about your height Rob. 174cm is max for her.

She is probably 177cm out of bed which would be explanation as to why she claims 5'10". Thing is, I'm inclined to think that even that's a stretch, she's probably 176cm out of bed. I'd give her 175cm-average height. Still, mighty tall for a woman.
richinkle said on 14/Jan/12
She appears to be exactly the same height as you, Rob. I would put her at 5'-8 1/2" - 5'-9".
Editor Rob
I'd agree in this photo she is pretty much similar.

to be fair, I would have guessed she looked the same as the 5ft 8.25 girl from the height challenge, I thought she was a fraction taller than she turned out to be.

but her quote about hiding height, I've never heard a celeb use that before, maybe it's best to give her the benefit of doubt :)

Attractive woman, but her 5'10" claim is bull. She's 5'8.5", 5'8.75" MAX.
Stiffelio said on 13/Jan/12
I didn't know she was Australian. In Nikita she had a barely detectable foreign accent. I agree with her posted height.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 13/Jan/12
Rob, why did you list her at 176? She's max 1 cm taller than you, plus 1 cms of disadvantage, she's max 5'8.75!
Editor Rob
maybe I'm being generous or she fooled me and like her quote said she hides height from people.

or maybe she's really 176cm in the morning.
Paige said on 13/Jan/12
Looks exactly the same height in this photo.
Ka said on 12/Jan/12
Rob, maybe she did measure 5'10 out of bed?
miko said on 12/Jan/12
I'm seeing more flat 5'9 here even considering footwear.
melvin said on 12/Jan/12
her claim of 5'10" is a stretch
miko said on 8/Jan/12
Your hiding height Rob? Always knew you were 6 foot! ;)
Editor Rob
you got me!
Iliev said on 7/Jan/12
In my opinion 176 is to tall for women. Man must be 15 cm taller than a women!
Editor Rob
I met peta at a con and thought her 5ft 10 claim was too much. Although her quote about hiding height is funny. I've done this myself.
Lisa said on 21/Jul/11
She is 176cm. Met her at my friends wedding (her sister in law) and they are the same height.

I think shes a solid 5'9 gorgeous woman.

La Femme Nikita alsong with Twin Peaks is my all time favorite show. The character Nikita is 5'11(the shot of her "profile" in the early episodes says so). On her website(the official one) she's(Peta not Nikita) is listed as 5'9. She looks taller to me but who knows-either way shes quite a beauty"amazing eyes and incredible accent.
Stiffelio said on 13/May/05
She looks the same height as or even slightly taller than co-star Roy Dupuis, who in various sites gets listed as being 5ft 11in. That means she's actually taller or he's shorter than list. Plus he usually wears pretty high heeled shoes.My guess for both is: Peta is 5ft 101/2; Roy is 5ft 10.
