How tall is Reese Witherspoon

I'm only 5ft 1in and sounding like I could take on an evil alien was actually the hardest part of the movie for me.
Stay clear of big, heavy, clunky platform shoes. They may add 5 inches to you, but they immediately pull you down because it looks like you're wearing tires on your feet.
I was never a 6-5 supermodel babe; I'm a 5-2 little thing. I identify more with the Holly Hunters and the Sally Fields than, say, Michelle Pfeiffer.
I'm 5-foot-2 and I weigh 93 pounds. I'm almost 17. So I'm probably not going to grow much. Considering the average woman from 20 to 65 shrinks 3 inches, that won't leave much left of me.

Rob, considering the pictures she has alongside JLo, I came to conclusion about the real height of both of them. JLo looks 2 1/2 inches taller than her, so that proves that the real height of Reese is exactly 5'1 1/2 and JLo height is 5'3.75 to solid 5'4. The usual guess of 5'4 1/2 it seems that isn't accurate for JLo. But of course a 5'3.75 to solid 5'4 woman can easily get mistaken for 5'4 1/2 since they are kind of twin heights. Anyway Reese is above 5'1, but under 5'2.

I'm never sure about just a flat 5ft 4 for Jennifer, always felt she cleared it. However, sometimes I can see evidence she is closer to 4 than 5!

Still feeling blown away, the film ‘Wild’ is so worth seeing. We see Reese embarking on a hundreds-of-miles hike across the desert and, as she reminisces, we find out how much the young woman has been through. Her mother, played by Laura Dern, has recently died of an illness and her father was a drunken abuser. Reese’s Cheryl has had a rocky past, but continues to keep her spirits up, which can be seen when Cheryl meets people - and animals - along the way.

All the people are taller than she is, except for an angelic little boy, whom she bumps into at the end of the film, when he sings her a beautiful song, offering her hope. The child is with his Mum, and they have a llama to carry their baggage.

I thought Reese looked 5ft1.5. She loses weight during the making of the film, so that could be when her weight hit 93 pounds. It would have been unrealistic if she hadn’t shed some weight, as her journey is gruelling and potentially dangerous.

I noticed that Reese co-produced the movie when the credits came up.

Nobody could have been more suitable for this film part, and I cannot recommend ‘Wild’ highly enough.

5ft1.5. 💐

I’ve just seen Reese’s movie, ‘Wild’. 🥲

Her performance was breathtaking, and so sincere and touching. When we get to hear the Simon and Garfunkel song ‘El Condor Pasa’ at the end, and in its entirety, I was covered in goose bumps.

More later…..

5-1 is all you get with Reese.
Average Heighted Male said on 9/Apr/21
In Election(1999) she looks at most 5'2" next to Matthew Broderick, who is no giant himself. He is 5'7",so that is a solid 5 inches between the two.

Reese also looked more than just 93 lbs. in that film, more likely 105 lbs. for her petite stature. She was 21 during filming.
ALEXIZ/180cm said on 6/Apr/21
Maybe 152 cm

Weak 5'2.

I doubt she’s as low as 93 pounds, I’d have said around 100-105 is probably right

5ft1.5 😁👍

I think 5'1" is a pretty honest claim for her, more so than 5'2".
Editor Rob
I am not sure she really is as low as 5ft 1, at times I think 5ft 1.5 up to 2 is quite possible
The hamburger said on 8/Mar/20
She always looks so small and cute. She always seem to be around 5'1 to 5'1.5 according to me. Something in that range.
Nik said on 17/Sep/19
She's big and tough and honest enough!

She looks 5'3 to me
Lee168cm said on 30/Aug/17
Would she be only around 5'4" in the above photo rob those heels dont look they'd even give a full 3 inches
Nathan Donnelly said on 10/Jul/17
If you ask me she's about 5',1½" even though long time ago when I watched Hot Pursuit (which in my opinion is a very funny and cute movie) in one of the scenes she says she is 5',2" but then when I read her biography that came out in 2015 that I got from the bookstore, it said she is actually 5',1½ and it didn't say how much she weighed so my guess is 93-115 pounds
Em said on 7/Jul/17
Very good listing
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Nov/16
Last night I saw this little lady playing the lead role in a film called 'Freeway!' The storyline is a serious one, even very sad, yet her performance was irresistibly funny! There are many top stars in the cast - Kiefer Sutherland, Amanda Plummer and Brittany Murphy to name but a few. I paused the DVD more times than I can recall so that I could laugh myself stupid at her facial expressions! I can't recommend this film highly enough! Reece, who plays a tearaway teenager born into a disfunctional family from a rough area, chooses to cope on her own in her own inimitable way, when her parents are taken into police custody. It is all the funnier because she's a tiny girl, but can she look after herself or what?
From this film, my favourite of hers so far, I'd put her height at between 5ft1 and 5ft1.5. I was waiting for her to stand near Brittany Murphy so I could compare the two, but it doesn't happen as you only see them sitting.
I'll settle for just over 5ft1 for this extremely talented and charming actress.

she does not look this short to me.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Jan/15
Rob can you add Wild to the list? She's got an Oscar nom I think. I get a big ballsy no nonsense vibe from her. She's little but makes up for it in other ways.
Steve said on 13/Jan/15
Rob, have you seen her recent pictures with Salma Hayek?
Salma looks clearly taller standing next to Reese, by about 1.5 inches.
Editor Rob
I think salma is taller, how much more is hard to say without seeing photos and their heels.
wishbone said on 6/Nov/14
Yet thanks to 5'2" Trade Winds friend Kelly Brough,I got Walk The Line back on Oct.31. Reese is very small,at just 5'1",but she sang beautifully on her own in it,and she is sweet and pretty.Gently warming up to reese,but I'm going to need more time to develop liking her the way I love,i.e.,Jane Powell or Sally Field,but she's nice.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Nov/14
Rob if she's 5'1.5 how tall is her mother LOL??? She looks taller next to her!! Click Here
Editor Rob
there's a few inches advantage with Reese there, her mother might be almost 5ft.
wishbone said on 29/Oct/14
I'm comfortable with looking at Reese Witherspoon as being small. 5'1" would be perfect as her height. Nice Oscar winning performance in Walk The Line. Needs to calm her thick Louisiana accent,though,but like all petite women,she's pretty. Sang nice,too,in Walk The Line. Had the DVD for a while,but I gave it up because I only moderately liked Johnny Cash.
Brad said on 23/Apr/13
Looks of her own words at 5' 1" in the vid with the cop, tiny.
K said on 21/Apr/13
She was aressted Friday and was listed as being 5'2" and 105 lbs on the arrest report. So 5'1.5" is probably right.

a woman being short is fine. western women though, prefer a man over 6'
lisa said on 10/Sep/12
short is not as bad as you may think. some people do actually like it; I like that I am short and I would rather be my size (about 5'2) and no taller. I read Jada Pinkett Smith doesn't want to be any taller and I read Toni Braxton say she was 5'1 and then she said 5'1 and 3/4, and I think she looks more 5'1 and 3/4
Claire said on 3/Sep/12
Its enough for me that she once said, 5'1.
Noone in the world especially if we are talking about celebs, wont even shorten their heights.
Grace said on 7/Aug/12
We were really good friends with her and her family, but I was quite young, and never been good at math and sizing so...but my mother it quite all, and reese seemed very small in comparison to her! I would guess around the sizes you've said!

I weigh like 106 lbs...but my waist is like 27 or 26 inches..BMI calculator says I'm underweight..I'm way taller than her anyway..

Why do some (if not most) people have to make everything about themselves?
kristine said on 19/Nov/11
no way is she 93 pounds. im 5'0" and i weigh 118!
jessica said on 18/Sep/11
reese is probaby 5'2. i saw a pic of her and christina ricci together (who i believe is 5'0, imo) and christina ricci looked at least two inches shorter than reese. If reese is less than 5'2, even by an inch, that means christina is 4'11, and i dont think she is.
Heightgirl said on 13/Jul/11
I found a pic of 5f2 Selma Blair and Reese together. Selma wore flats and stood a bit hunched. Reese was standing tall in 3 inch heels and Reese was only an inch taller. I think Reese may be 5f1 or a bit less. Click Here

Reese Witherspoon is not from North Carolina. She's from Tennessee. Born in Lousiana, but brought up in Tennessee for the most part.
gregory lehmann said on 16/May/11
Slowly warming up to Reese. Need to see more Reese Witherspoon movies to fully like her. But she's cute,but needs to calm her thick North Carolina accent.

Its crazy, she is the same height and weight as me, same hair colour and face shape... Im 17 and get called reese all the time!! glad to know being petite isn't a bad thing...

She looks her weight..I think Reese is more of 5'1"
alex said on 31/Dec/10
i doubt shes 93 pounds. i'm thinking more like 105.
Rachel said on 25/Nov/10
you can't really judge her by her weight because that also depends on her bone density, I'm 5'4" and I weigh 115lbs and MDs tell me I'm underweight but if u see me I'm clearly not, but I have a low bone density. So that's probably why she weighs so little, its actually not very hard to believe since she looks very petite width-wise.
RICHARD said on 10/Jun/09
Paul Rudd absolutely towers her in Overnight Delivery. He's 5'9-5'10 so she is 5' MAX !!!
Lenad said on 5/Jun/09
Definitly not taller than 5'2. More likely a strong 5'1
Lenad said on 19/May/09
I'm with Mr R on this one. Witherspoon seems closer to 5'1. Look how short she looks compared to others!
Natalie said on 14/May/09
She must be more than 93 pounds (42 kilos) because that's what I am and I'm 5' and thinner than her, so this is wrong :P
yoyo said on 4/May/09
Reese look more like 155barefoot to me.. 93pounds sounds right. shes a 'small girl..
Amanda said on 2/May/09
She must be so underweight is she is only 93lbs!! I am the same height I am about 122 lbs with a healthy bmi of 22. She doesn't look underweight though! Anyway I think she is a beautiful girl with an amazing personality
X marks the spot said on 30/Apr/09
omg no way! Reese 5'2?? I'm 5'2 and I think that I look shorter than she does! I wanna meet her in real life so that I can see how tall we both are.
x said on 28/Apr/09
you are right brad, she would be grossly underweight if she weighed 93 pounds! she looks about 5'1"-5'2"
Lenad said on 20/Apr/09
She looks more 5ft1ish in my eyes
Nashville said on 25/Mar/09
She's 5 foot 1.677493" tall. It's just easier to explain 5'2". Whatever. Since I have stood next to her in person, I always find it REALLY shocking when she is in pix with women even smaller than she is.
Brad said on 11/Mar/09
You all are a bunch of dumbasses. If you had even half a brain it would've taken you all ten seconds to find out FROM HER OWN BIOGRAPHY PAGE that says she weighs 124lbs. Just further proof you are all dumbasses and don't know how to check your facts....

Reese seems 5'1" 5'2" to me, alhtough Vince Vaugn towers over her by 15 inches

When she falls down while fixing her poster from dustbin in movie election she look very tiny!5'2 is ok, Her part was intresting luv that movie and her acting was great also!
DG said on 7/Jan/09
Reese Witherspoon carries herself so well that she even seems at leats 5'5
BabyPunkRock said on 20/Dec/08
5'2" sounds just right for her. I saw Four Christmases poster too, but you have to remember that Vince Vaughn is a REALLY tall guy, about 6'5", so lots of girls nest to him would look smaller than they really are. Still pretty iffy about 93 pounds claim too, because I shrunk myself to 95 pounds and I'm barely over 5', and it looked really skinny. Of course it's possible to be 5'2 and 93 lbs, but I don't think she'd look as healthy as she always seems to look, unless the quote was a while ago or taken out of context?
Becky said on 10/Dec/08
it's funny that reese and vince have a huge height difference in four christmases because i saw a poster that she was standing on 3 4 inch boxes and when she stand on the boxes with her 4 inch heels that makes her a little bit taller than vince vaughn if i wore 4 inch heels and stood on 3 4 inch boxes and stood back to back with vince i would be almost 7 foot something or a little bit more than that or a little bit less!
C. said on 9/Dec/08
People (mainly women) always say the camera "adds" 10-15 lbs, but look at any actresses outside of the US/Hollywood/Western cinema at the same height/weight-- they always look thinner regardless. Because I look at myself on camera and I look about the same, not 10-15 heavier. And again, Reese compared to Eva? They are not around the same weight.
Genevieve said on 4/Dec/08
I think she is taller, Christina Ricci has 155 cm, and Reese seems 10 cm taller, or Christina Ricci is shorter than 155 cm!
Sorry for my bad English...
Faith said on 30/Nov/08
You are all forgetting that the camera adds 10-15lbs.

She's about 5ft2. She's very sweet and cute. Me and my bro were argueing over her. In the end we both got what we wanted. A nice big hug from her. SHe felt very delicate in my arms.
C. said on 28/Nov/08
I hardly think it's impossible for a woman to weigh 42 kg at 5'2" as I see plenty of petite women around that same weight. But Reese? She looks at least 110 lbs. She's not Eva Longoria who I could see weighing in the 90-something range (but she's also not 5'2" either). If most actors and actresses lie about their height, why wouldn't they lie about their weight? After watching "Four Christmases" Reese appears more like 5'-5'1" max, but even then I can't see her weighing 93 lbs. It just seems like there's more than a 15" difference between her and Vaughn, as she's wearing high-heels throughout the entire movie.
anonymous said on 27/Nov/08
When she went on letterman with 4 inch heels she was up to letterman's chin. I would say 5 foot 2 max. She can't be 4 foot 11. She looks taller than hilary duff and eva longoria.
light said on 26/Nov/08
I dunno, as someone just said, the promo poster for Four Christmases would put Reese at significantly less than 5 foot 2.
chris said on 26/Nov/08
in the promotional photo for "Four Christmases", Reese is wearing approx 4 inch heels, and is standing on 4 boxes that appear to be about 4 inches high each. So....4 inches per box, plus 3 inches in height for the 4 inch heels, yields 19 inches to her height. She's roughly as tall as 6'5" Vince Vaughn (lets give him 6'6" with his shoes) in the photo (maybe even a tad shorter), so that makes her no more than 4'11" barefoot, no?
anonymous said on 24/Nov/08
The height difference between vince vaughn and reese is at least 35cm. She's 5 foot 2 max.
Kate said on 22/Nov/08
Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn had a huge height gap as seen in 'Four Christmases'. Check out Click Here
Ron said on 26/Oct/08
I was right next to Reese waiting for the valet at the Beverly Hills Hotel just
last week. I doubt she's 5-2" - she looked about 5'4" tall - but was wearing 4"
heels! I've seen other sources list her height at 5'1/2 inches - and I think that's more like it. Can't be as tall as 5'2".
Nancy said on 21/Oct/08
I'm 5' and a pinch. I always count the "pinch." When I was in High School, about 100 years ago, I was 98lbs and never gave a thought to what I ate. Anything I wanted whenever I wanted. Friends would diet but I never did. I had such a hot bod and never really appreciated it at the time. You know, my butt's too big, celulite etc... That all changed when I hit 28 and now is a distant memory. But I still have the pictures! - I love that Reese is so hot and 5'2". I identify with her and love to watch her success. Good posture plus a strong personality add inches and stature.
Lenad said on 20/Oct/08
Okay I lie im not 6'1.
Becky said on 3/Oct/08
i saw Reese Witherspoon on a dvd cover of legally blonde and she looks much taller than the rest of the cast members on the dvd which is very strange for a petite woman to be taller than most people!I am pretty average height and even if i wear really high heels, i can't be taller than a guy or a girl the thing is that petite women tend to look much taller on camera than they actually are in person is a very irrelevant idea i mean most petite girls whether they are fat or skinny seem to look cute and pixie like i mean when i was little i was like that too until i took some medicine that made me bigger in size and made me gain weight!It's a fact that petite girls can look taller than any person average height or taller seem shorter than them! I mean my mom is 5'2" and she is pretty tiny,but she can't be taller than a lot of ppl on camera,but she is still a good person with a good height for an old mom!

I agree with Anna's comment on August 7th. I'm also 5'2, 91 pounds, and has the same body frame as Reese, so I truly believe she's telling the truth.
Ameera said on 29/Sep/08
I'm 5"2 I used to weigh 93 punds but I didnt like it as my face was so thin so I looked older than I really was. Now i'm 103 and I look much better. I think a girl needs some fat.. just not much:)
Anonymous said on 26/Sep/08
An easy way to calculate a healthy body weight, start with 100 pounds and add 5 lbs for every inch over 5 feet for women, and add 6 lbs for men. So 5' 2" ideal (healthy/fit) weight would be 110.
anonymous said on 29/Aug/08
i dont believe that she weighs 93 pounds. I am 4 11 and weigh 94. i do agree that you can't go by BMI because everyone is different. If she really did weigh that she would look anorexic and she doesnt. she looks healthy and really good. She is gorgeous. For a person who is 5 2 an average weight would be 110 and I'm sure she has muscle because every star has a personal trainer and muscle weighs more than fat. It is impossible for that.
Lenad said on 13/Aug/08
Okay I'm 6'1 my dad is 6'2 (I think) and my mum is 5'2. I asked my mum and she thinks Reese witherspoon would be slightly taller than her. But thats where I laugh my butt off. Reese is definitly no taller than 5'2. She should be downgraded to 5'1
Anna said on 7/Aug/08
I love how so many girls in this thread proclaim that Reese can't be 93 pounds just because they are not! Come on! Since when your weight influences someone else's??? Also, weight has a lot to do with the bone structure, amount of muscles, etc. And 5-foot-2, 93 pounds is not impossible. It's just that the perception of what's fat in America is skewed. There are too many fat people around who want to think they are actually of normal weight and want to make themselves feel better. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against non-skinny people, and being thin at the expense of having an eating disorder is not the right way of managing weight. And sure Reese's BMI shows she's underweight, but BMI is not a good way of judging what's normal either. For example, my boss has a BMI that indicates he's overweight, and he's an ultramarathoner who has almost no body fat and is almost pure muscle. Each body is different.

I believe she is 5'2 it's so funny how she admits to being 93 pounds! most actresses are like im 110 pounds
Angie said on 29/Jul/08
sorry, but i am not buying it. maybe, she is 100, but even that is hard to believe. i am 5 foot 1 and i weight 113 lbs. but i play soccer, and i am naturally very muscular so that probably accounts for the extra weight. her saying that just makes me feel fat. it is a good thing i love food enough not to have a eating disorder or i would be anorexic. if that is her real weight i guess she is nothing but skin and bones so i feel bad for her.
brit said on 26/Jul/08
oh god..Josie, do u know that in most countries average height is more of 5'5'' to 5'6'' ? humans grow! 20 years before in Germany the average height for a woman was 5'5'' it's at 5'7''!! and due to the fact that america is a real big country..well the average heights are real different there..but just stop telling '5'4'' is average, i am so tall' okay, u didn't say you're tall but it sounds like that..just deal with the fact you're short..period..i am 5'5.5'' and i am not tall and not average here in Germany..and it's many states of America i would be considered average but in most countries i ain't tall..and reese witherspoon is definately 5'1'' seeing her being a good deal smaller than tobey maguire in pleasantville..
Amanda said on 13/Jul/08
wow how sad? are ya'll really that intimidated that you have to say shes lying? well i believe her im 5'1 and i weigh 94lbs and im healthy and lovin it....shes looks great and yes its VERY possible to weigh 93lbs at 5'2.....grow up!
Josephine said on 12/Jul/08
I am 5'4", which makes me of average height in most countries. I weight something between 115 lbs and 120 lbs. I am very thin boned.
But I agree with Reese when she says height has nothing to do with feeling tough and strong.
Rissa said on 28/Jun/08
Ok. I'm 5'2 and a 130 pounds and now I officially feel like a fat ass. And I'm a size 4. If Reese weighs 93 pounds I'm a pig with wings. I also don't buy that because I was in cheerleading with a girl who was 4'11 and weighed 95 pounds, she was TINY there is no way Reese Witherspoon EVER weighed less than her, especially since she's probably at her skinniest right now. She was always really curvy before. Anyone seen Cruel Intentions?
Nikole said on 26/May/08
I dont see how you think being 5'2 and 93lbs is such a big deal or a lie. I am exactly 5'2 and weigh 95 at 18 years old. It is possible without an eating disorder or lying.
Diane said on 11/Apr/08
Caught Reese on "American Idol Gives Back" and was surprised at how short (and tiny) she really is- I think her confidence and the way she carries herself makes her appear taller- 5'0 or 5'1 seems about right,though.
kasey said on 9/Apr/08
reese is my favorite actrss in the world! I wish I could meet her. I am 5' and weigh 90 pounds so it is possible that she weighs 93.
diana said on 28/Mar/08
she's 93 lbs?
i'm 5 feet tall and weigh 113 lbs (muscle i guess) and people think i weigh 90,
so there is no way she is 93...
that is such a total lie.
no wonder there are so many eating disorders among girls.
Fay said on 28/Feb/08
i saw her on Regis and Kelly the other say and she commented that her and Vince Vaughn make a funny couple because he's 6'5 and she's 5'2. I appreciate that she owns up and embraces her petiteness! she's a beautiful lady! i think this is an accurate listing for her!!!

Someone says 115 or 120 is a lot for someone who is 5'2"??!!!! LOL my god, no wonder we have so many eating disorders in this country. That is insane at best.

Look at that quote above: "I'm really tough in my mind. I'm only 5-foot-2 but I think I'm big. And tough"

What a dumb thing to say, how cocky and full of herself. If she thinks she's big she must hang around with little kids all the time.

TO LEIGH: im 5'2" and 115 pounds, and according to you, i would be on the "fat" side, but anyone who knows me would say im healthy to somewhat skinny. and your comment regarding SS is unnecessary and rude. does is really give you that great of satisfaction to bash another's weight? and quite honestly, you being 5'1" and 96lbs, yet saying your still "a bit heavy" troubles me. sounds like you have some issues of your own to deal with...

About these remarks about Reese Witherspoon being not-so-nice, Kevin Smith has also said so himself, "faux-erudite and condesceding" he says. Click Here

She's 5'2" and looks like it. (And 5'2" is tiny. 5'4" is 'average', but most avg. height girls fall in between 5'5"-6" these days.)

As for the 93 lbs...she probably didn't weigh that in HS either. She's somewhat curvy, and she easily looks around 110-115 lbs. 42 kg women around her height that I've seen look really, really tiny. And Reese doesn't look THAT tiny.
anonymous said on 12/Nov/07
runt: 5'2" may be 2 inches below average, but it's also only 2 inches above 5 I can see why it's considered "tiny".
LK said on 22/Oct/07
Just watched her on Biography channel yesterday. She admitted to being quite short in stature. The 93lbs is obviously when she was a teen. She is probably more like 103-105 - remember she has had children. I am 5'2 and 103. She was educated in a well to do all girls high school in Nashville and enrolled in Stanford for a year but left to pursue her acting career. So the girl has been well educated and has a brain. Her dad is an ENT doctor and her mother has a PHD in nursing and was a professor.

Sounds really low , but why not ...
Afterall one of my friends is 5'4 99lbs ...
Anon said on 14/Oct/07
93 pounds? Thats halarious.
FiveOne said on 2/Oct/07
I believe that she is 5'2". I don't believe that she weighs 93lbs! More like 98-100 lbs. I'm 5'1" and weigh 105 lbs. No way she's 93 lbs!
triz said on 24/Sep/07
When you see this picture of American Psycho, there is no way she would be more than 5', next to 6' Christian Bale and even more 5'5" Samantha Mathis !! Besides, she strikes me as a person that would lie about her height.

i always thought she was a little taller well almost everyone is kind of small in hollywood it seems like at least 124 and 5'5 and she doesnt look like she ways 93 pounds
A said on 4/Sep/07
Saw the girl this weekend in W. LA and she's about 5'2 and maybe 100 lbs - she's way shorter than I ever imagined and small but not "skinny" and definitel not as ample as the camera makes her look. Everyone sort of tried to prentend it wasn't a big deal but everyone was eying her - she's got a cute accent.
Leigh said on 24/Aug/07
To: SS

Bebe, according to your BMI ratio, you're overweight...o.O
I'm 5'1" and 96 lbs, definitely not small framed as I also got ample butt/hips and C cups and I definitely don't look sick. In fact, I still look a bit heavy. So yeah, hard to believe you could be 134 at your height and not look fat.
Anonymous said on 2/Aug/07
either way she's gorgeous
Anonymous said on 13/Jul/07
she may be 5'2, but she was never, ever 93 lbs! she's cute, but who's she kidding? she's a thick, curvy woman! my guess, even at her thinniest was prob 106. AT HER THINNIST. on average she looks close to 115.
TS said on 23/Jun/07
Cassie said Witherspoon "is not educated in any way" or "intelligent".
Her biography states that she attended Stanford for some time. That would put her at a higher educational level than most.
Petite Activist said on 19/Jun/07
I recall reading an article in Seventeen when I was in junior high where she claimed to be 5'3" and just under 100 lb (and with a 23" waist!). She must have been about 17 or 18 at the time, because she said she was a senior in high school.

SS said on 16/Jun/07

I am 5' 0.75" and I weigh 134 pounds and I am not fat. I have curves - ample butt and D cups, but I am not fat. I have a flat stomach and trim arms, etc. These people saying they are taller than me and weigh less than 100 pounds (if they are adults) worry me. I weighed 105 senior year of high school after an illness, and I looked positively sick. And I am a small person. I cannot imagine being an inch or two taller and weighing 30 or 40 pounds less than I do! I'd look like... well, Nicole Richie.
TS said on 8/Jun/07
I'll repost what I said on Phillipe's page. Glenn was a
'security employee?'. Employees do not act as guests. It's rude and intrusive. How would you like it if the waiters,busboys,bartenders et al joined your the party (or table)as guests ?
Most parties are for invited guests
runt said on 29/May/07
why is 5-2 considered tiny? its 2 inches below average. For males, 5-7 is two inches below average and is not considered 'tiny' its considered the minimum accepatable height for an actor.
TNTinCA said on 22/May/07
I think this may be a little high. In American Psycho when she is in scenes with Christian Bale, he absolutely towers over her, even when she is in heels. Might be closer to 5 foot.
height_sleuth said on 5/May/07
There's a scene in "Just like Heaven" where the guy is describing her and he's like "she's around 5 feet 2" and she adds in "and a half!" so she's 5 feet 2 and a half inches. Just like me. Good things come in small packages:)
karen said on 29/Apr/07
also if you searh Yahoo for "reese witherspoon sweet home alabama" you will get screen shots of her and Patrick Dempsey who's listed here at aroundd 5'9"-5'10"...the top of her head comes up to his mouth.
karen said on 29/Apr/07
There is a screen shot in "sweet home alabama" where she has her mug shot taken. She's at the 5'5" marker and she's slouching a little bit. Not sure if they used any camera tricks, or what kinda shoes she's wearing. But she's at least 5'2".
Kathryn said on 10/Apr/07
i would say 5'2.25''(158 cm) because in cruel intentions sarah michelle gellar [5'3'' (160 cm)] looked ALMOST about 1 inch taller than her. and the ALMOST isn´t 1 inch, haha. =)
Viper said on 27/Mar/07
No Cassy, I havent met her. But she comes off as being down to earth in the media.
Cassy said on 25/Mar/07
Viper have you met her??? If not than who are you to contradict people who have?!!?!? Get real, these are entertainers it is their job to portray themeselved in a good light
Viper said on 25/Mar/07
She comes off as being really down to earth.
Cassy said on 24/Mar/07
Saw her during promos for Walk the line, and would say 5'1 is correct. Also, to varify what Glenn was saying earlier about her character..others who actually dealed with her did say she is highly unapproachable. What is interesting is that she is not educated in any way, or even intelligent enough to have a snotty attitude hence why people have found her behaviour that much more shocking!!
fashionista said on 28/Jan/07
woah i don't know how long ago that quote was from, but she's DEFINATELY not 93 lbs!! Not that she is by any means fat, but I'm 5'2" and 90 lbs and a lot skinnier. My sister is 5'2" and has Reese's body type, and she's 115 lbs. Reese is probably 110-115.

Editor Rob
oh, the 93lbs quote comes from 1993, she said in the same interview "almost 17". More chance of sub 100 at nearly 17 than in her 20's I guess.
Alex said on 25/Jan/07
Kim, you're only 96lbs at 5'3.5? Thats pretty skinny, you should be 100-105lbs for that height at least, but you'd still be pretty thin but look good though.

Reese is more 5'1 to me but she still looked at 110lbs-115lbs.
ancient aztec guy said on 25/Jan/07
Reese witherspoon is a funny feller.She is no more than 5'1". I mean in high heels she was dwarfed by Qoaquin pheonix.I would not doubt that she is even 5 feet tall.
boy george fan said on 21/Jan/07
5-2 is believable for her height, but 93 pounds in weight is a f*ckin' lie.

I knew a 5-2 girl who weighed 94 pounds who was extremly scrawny, no way did she have Resses' breast size, curves or legs.

Resse would have to weigh at least 110 pounds.

5'2" sounds about right as i'm 96 pounds and 5'3.5"
Ashley said on 12/Jan/07
When I first saw her in Legally Blonde, I thought that she was 5'5". But when I found out she was 5'2", I was surprised that she's that short. Sometimes when your 5'3" or shorter, you can fool some people by appearing taller on camera.
Alex said on 6/Jan/07
Some girls who claim to be 5'2 are really 5'0-5'1. I think Reese is really 5'1. In Fear she was around the same height as Alyssa Milano who most will agree with is 5'1 and not 5'2.
vilz said on 9/Dec/06
i met her last year. i am 5"2. we were both wearing flats. i was on flip flop and she's on sneakers. i think she's 5"2 and a half..
firecracker said on 21/Oct/06
If she's 93 pounds (at least during the Legally Blonde period), it's unlikely that she's 5'2". She has to be a bit less. I'm around 5'2 and 3/8", and I weigh 98 pounds, and I'm thin and have a very small frame. She's thin, of course, but I'm sure her bones are heavier than mine - most people's are. I'd put her height at 5'1" to 5'1.5". A way to gauge celebs' heights is to compare it to their weight, which may be more accurate, since we weigh ourselves more than we get our heights measured.
ancient Aztec Guy said on 3/Sep/06
I don`t think Reese is even 5'1".I would say she is 5'0" at the most.Pheonix is about 5 or 6 inches taller that with her 3inch heels.Most sources I have found says she is 5'1".
Glenn said on 5/Aug/06
Shes nice when she wants to be Lilly.she ignored everyone when promoting Walk The Line and had a wall of security around her.shes fake.dont tell me whats crap when Ive been meeting celebs for 16 years and was security at an event she was at 6 years ago.
Lilly said on 4/Aug/06
Glenn I think thats a load a' crap. I met her myself and she's not like that at all
Goldie said on 11/Jul/06
She goes to the same gym that I go to and I was next to her on the treadmill about a month ago. I am 5'6 and she was definitely shorter then me, her 5'2 seems pretty accurate. Looks wise, she did not look much different then she does in the movies, pretty girl.
Emily said on 24/Jun/06
I think she is around 5'2, but in the Leally Blonde Movies she did look taller, well I think she is a sweet wonderful actress. When I met her she was sweet and nice to me
Cath said on 4/Jun/06
In Just Like Heaven, they make a bit of a joke about her height. Mark Ruffalo describes her as 5-1, she jumps in with 5-2. Always wondered if Reese wanted that put in!
Anonymous said on 19/Apr/06
Something about her always screamed bitchy and plastic to me, so Glenn's experience just confirms my notion. Plus, I never liked her as an actress.
Kats said on 19/Apr/06
yeah... fake nice sucks. Shame on her.
Glenn said on 13/Apr/06
She can be a fake nice.but she was always mean around me.
Kats said on 13/Apr/06
I'm totally shocked to hear this Glenn. I believe you for sure, but just wow-- Didn't think I'd hear this about her.

Speaking about her height, 5'2 it is, I think.
nikki said on 17/Mar/06
That's a shame she seems sweet! I think she is really gorgeous anyway
glow said on 16/Mar/06
Wow Glenn I'm amazed, all I ever hear about is how nice she is... unless she's just putting on an act...
Glenn said on 15/Mar/06
I was at a new years party 2000,when she complained about me asking for photo OP to security,when I was in fact,in rare occasion,head of security myself! And till this day I hear she is snotty.
Jessica said on 14/Mar/06
What do you mean worst Glenn? Explain yourself I think she is very beautiful!

Really Nice? She Is One Of The Worst!

Yeah!!!I think Reese is really nice so it doesnt realy matter how tall she is.
Oh and by the way does anyone know how tall is Rachell Bilson?????
Emma said on 4/Mar/06
Yay!! i thought i was really small and i felt stupid because im 5'2 aswell!! that makes me feel so much better!!

Standing besides Keira Knightley - 5'2 looks right.
anonoymous said on 12/Feb/06

in this photo she looks to be about 5 inches shorter than Joaquin Phoenix- if she's wearing flats that is. I think she is closer to 5'1" tall.
Wicked Kid said on 27/Jan/06
In Just Like Heaven, the guy described her as "5'1", 5'2"?"
gyllenhaalic823 said on 12/Dec/05
to "WOW!" i watched legally blonde recently and thought, ooh she might be short but she is short AND tiny, and being tiny (a.k.a. short and thin w/ a small frame) it makes her look taller, even though you can tell that she's not that tall; even look at her compared to 6'0" Luke Wilson in that movie (when she has heels on even)
and like wow and random, i'd also like the heights of yellowcard ;)
Mr. R said on 30/Nov/05
After watching Walk the Line Saturday, I actually think she is closer to 5'1". There is a pretty huge difference between her and Joaquin Phoenix, and she is in 2-3 inch heels for most of the film. She is also way shorter than hubby Ryan Phillipe, and he is said to be 5-9, but is probably closer to 5-8!
WOW! said on 29/Nov/05
OMG I didn't know she was that short! She looks so tall in Legaly Blonde . . . I don't know heels work for her =))
and i also would be interested in the heights of yellowcard, I love those guys!
