Uma Thurman's Height

5ft 11 ¼ (181 cm)

American actress best known for roles in movies such as Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Gattaca, Batman & Robin, Dangerous Liaisons, Mad Dog and Glory, Beautiful Girls, The Truth about Cats and Dogs, Paycheck and Nymphomaniac. She once said on Howard Stern she was "Five Eleven and a bit".

How tall is Uma Thurman

My body type is the opposite of all the people who created these [martial] arts. They have a low center of gravity; they're compact. Then there's me. I'm like 5 ft. 11 in., all arms and legs, with a 2-ft neck.
Uma continued to shoot up rapidly, until she hit her adult height of just a breath shy of 6 feet, her shoe size similarly expanding to an 11.
"I was really obscenely tall compared to my other classmates. I had a size 8 shoe when other kids had a 4. I think that probably added to my sense of separation, my lack of co-ordination because my feet were too big, hands too big, head too big, the whole thing"

I think Uma has 2.5 inches to 3 inches on Theron based on these photos. That would make her a legit 6 footer.

Rob, what can you say about the height difference between her and Charlize in their pictures for Old Guard 2?
Editor Rob
Not seen them together yet.
linusserrano said on 7/Jun/23
Rob, any comments on her and Nicole Kidman? Do you think she looks taller or shorter? In the photos of the 2017 Pirelli Calendar Nicole Kidman seemed a little taller. Thank you.
Editor Rob
It varies in photos, sometimes either can look taller, but overall I'd still say barefoot Uma would edge Nicole.

I was on the set with her In Gattaca. I stood right next to her filming a part that ended up on the cutting room floor. I was the only one on the set who looked down on her in her heals. I laughed when I read the 5' 11" height. She was a solid 6' maybe a bit more, She may have shrunk with time, but back then she was 6', and I was near her future husband too-- they moved me because he was shadowed by me. He seemed tiny to me. I laughed at his claimed height back then, I think he said 6' at the time. Not a chance.

I loved her little dance with John Travolta in Pulp Fiction. Both actors were shoeless and the height difference was nondescript.

This is not true actually.There are types of martial arts that being tall and thin helps.

5'11" legit
Zuber said on 13/Aug/22
She is as tall as her mom,Nena von Schlebrügge,that today is 81,and when she was younger,she was identical to Uma,like Maya Hawke is also identical to her mom.
Vick said on 4/Apr/22
Hey Rob,
How about 5’11.5 for Ms. Thurman? Since the editor said she was just shy of 6’ perhaps there is also a chance of 5’11.75 for a afternoon measurement? Besides that she is my favorite actress and I hope to see her in more films
Editor Rob
11.5 is always possible, but 6ft is too much
Rapha said on 5/Feb/22
Hi Rob

Do you think she started to shrink ? She is in her early 50 s.
Btw, I never realized that she was that tall.
Editor Rob
Maybe we're talking a few mm
Jayk said on 2/Jan/22
we could look eye to eye I agree with E-- somewhat Im about the same height, I feel quite abov average but there are still about 1/4 of men taller on average. That being said I rarley see females my height or taller,maby one in every 250-260 female. She is tall no doubt but not giant, 5'11.25.
Ozi said on 14/Nov/21
She is shorter than 181 definitely, look at her comparison with Melissa George who you listed as 168. You either under listed Melissa George or increased the height of Uma.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 8/Sep/21
She looked very tall in kill Bill, for sure in that 5'11 range.

I’d disagree with that quote of hers. Seems like it’s easier to do martial arts (talking from experience with Brazilian Jiujitsu) if you’re tall and slender

Next to John Travolta in Pulp Fiction she looked more like 5’10 1/2
Jaydee said on 30/Jul/20
Elle is listed as 6 ft in some websites but in all the photos I've seen, Uma is always half an inch to an inch taller than her.
Jaydee said on 26/Jun/20
Uma is taller than Nicole Kidman who is at least 5'10.5, so she is at least 5'11.5 or maybe taller.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Apr/20
💐🎂💝 Happy 5️⃣0️⃣th Birthday Uma 💝🎂💐

Congratulations to Uma Thurman on her Big 5️⃣-0️⃣!

I really can't see her being less than 5ft11.25, having so recently seen her dance with John Travolta - barefooted - in the famous dance competition in 'Pulp Fiction'. I could even believe half-an-inch more for all that time ago - it's just over a quarter of a century old, after all! 🤭

5ft11.25 😁👍🎉

Nik said on 5/Feb/20
I'm glad Rob has given her her bit!
Nik Ashton said on 5/Oct/19
She’s so tall!
Animus said on 4/Oct/19
In PULP FICTION she wears flats, so she appears more like a 5’10 girl in that movie. Even in flats, though, she is almost the same height as Travolta (with poor posture).
Nik Ashton said on 29/Aug/19
I’ve seen her listed as 6’0” on a few websites!
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 30/Jul/19
At least she is truthful to her claimed height as 5ft 11. Nothing less..... plus she's also beautiful as well!!!!
Nik said on 5/May/19
I like her comments above! Most people have faith in her claims!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Apr/19
😁🎈🎂 Happy Birthday Uma! 🎂🎈😁

Such impressive roles from this very tall lady, who is largely known for her Quentin Tarantino movies and lately, she's even been in a couple of Lars Von Trier ones, including the recent 'The House That Jack Built', wherein she plays an ill-fated hitch hiker.

Wishing her the happiest of Birthdays!


berta said on 11/Dec/18
I saw Kill bill couple days ago. The first one was better than i remembered. I think she looked 181-182 range in in. Just by looking at her body i think she could be anywhere from 180-182. With the highest chanse of 181-181,5. Very tall
Animus said on 3/Sep/18
*Correction: There are greater numbers of 'very short' and 'very tall' men, proportionally speaking.
Animus said on 3/Sep/18
5'11¼ is certainly a towering height for a woman. The male equivalent is slightly north of 6'5. Given that the exponential decrease at the tails of the distribution is slightly smaller for males (in other words there are fewer very shory and very tall men, proportionally speaking), it might be equivalent to a slightly shorter height but certainly in the vicinity of 6'5.
mb said on 28/Aug/18
she is taller I think. I see her at the Children's Film Festival each year in NYC,,,,, I am a confirmed 68" and she is quite a bit taller than me, perhaps 5 inches (wearing the same heel height).
MAD SAM said on 15/Jul/18
She always appeared 6 footer to me even in flats, anyway she’s gotta be at least 181.5 cm at 5’11.5”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/18
184cm is insane. She look max 181cm.
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Jun/18
How great was Uma in 'Pulp Fiction'?

When she got up and danced in the restaurant 'Jack Rabbit Slim's' (I think!), she didn't have any shoes on and she still looked mega-tall - definitely on par with John T! Quite honestly, I would believe 6ft for Uma, so I will simply have to go with the maximum I can and give her 5ft11.75, with 6ft+ as her first-thing-in-the-morning height!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/May/18
I think she mean 5'11 and a bit was likely 180.5cm like 5'11 1/8.
Ella said on 6/Feb/18
She must have been around 138 lbs in Kill Bill. I don't think she looked underweight, but very slim. What do you think her weight was back then? (133 would make her underweight, so I doubt her weight was that low.)

I'm the same height, and I look thinner than she did in KB, when my weight is
Don Julio said on 18/Jan/18
Legit 181 cm woman

rob can you add her to female models list she started as a model
Uma Thurman began modeling at the age of 15, signing with Click Models and appearing in Glamour magazine and British Vogue
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/18
If this height is correct then in this photo Travolta is looking a strong 6ft1/weak 6ft2, Sam Jackson a solid 6ft3 and Willis leaning back not standing as tall as the rest looks almost 6ft1, standing properly he'd look the same as John

crazy stuff...makes me wonder if Quentin insisted on the guys wearing lifts in order to look much taller than Uma
MaryAnne said on 25/Nov/17
Leg length is 1,08. Leggy blonde
robson said on 29/Oct/17
I met her once, I was exactly as she is as I'm 5'11.5 while I was wearing inch shoes so you can say I was 184 cm, while he was wearing little heels I think about 5-6cm so it makes her 178-179cm barefoot. Still very tall as a woman
an anonymous peach said on 28/Oct/17
I think she would edge out Sigourney Weaver
Nona said on 20/Oct/17
Uma is her listed height and has lost all the extra fat around her mid section. I'm going with 181 cms and 140 lbs for her
ANDY said on 6/Oct/17
Nobody Can Deny The Fact That Uma Thurman Is Six Feet Tall.
MisterManletMick said on 20/Sep/17
in Gattaca she looked almost the same height as Ethan Hawke who is a little over 5 ft 10 so 5 ft 11 seems about right.
Anonymous said on 16/Sep/17
She looks really tall for a woman and a person in general. Always holds a weak posture however, as she hunches a little. I believe she is above 5 11
Slim 182 cm said on 22/Jul/17
She may in fact be rounding down her height by a fraction, as she once said on Howard Stern she was "Five Eleven and a bit"

5'11.4 confirmed.

Rob dont you think she was 6 foot at her peak ? Because in kill vol.2 daryl hannah os wearing two inch heels and she was barefoot. But she was still a bit taller than hannah.
Jp said on 6/Feb/17
i think she is 6 foot
Theo J said on 31/Jan/17
Worked with her on set of Merchant Ivory film The Golden Bowl in 1999, and I was 6'1, and she seemed almost as tall. 5'11.5 is spot on.
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Dec/16
Ha ha! I can confidently tell my boyfriend now that I am right with my 5ft11! He swore she was 5ft10 and wouldn't back down!
Ner-ner-ner-ner-ner and Christmas raspberries to you Jim!
Jp said on 13/Sep/16
Very tall, but she is NOT 6 ft ! Because in the pictures with Tarantino (who is 6 ft 1) she looks like 4 or 5 cm
Mark said on 16/Feb/16
Allie, at least Uma is closer to the 6ft mark than Taylor. If Taylor was indeed anything near 5ft10 or 6ft (she's actually claimed that she's 6ft4 with heels..), then she would easily tower over Karlie Kloss in heels. However, even in her chunky platform heels, Taylor is still towered by Karlie Kloss (in flats).
S.J.H said on 14/Feb/16
Uma is the same height as topher grace who get underestimate at 5'10.5
Allie said on 11/Jan/16
It's weird how sometimes her height was inflated to 6'0! Then again, I've seen people describe Taylor Swift as 6'0!
LoganNoll1996 said on 28/Dec/15
I remember calling her 5'8" at one point. Of course this was when I thought Clooney was a 5'8-5'9 guy as he looked similar in height to 5'8-5'9 Chris O'Donnell. A strong 5'11 for sure if Carradine was around 5'10 in his later years. I doubt she's a full inch shorter than Travolta though.

Uma Thurman's height is 5 feet 11.5 inches(she IS mistaken for 6 foot a lot after all)

John Travolta's height is 6 feet 0 inches.
LoganNoll1996 said on 27/Jul/15
Why would Uma downgrade her height? 5'11 is tall for a woman but no one really makes a big deal about it. Usually it's very short women or men under 6 feet that exaggerate their height.
Mon said on 14/Jun/15
She is surely as tall as Travolta, in Pulp Fiction dance scene she alone was in bare feet. Final verdict: Uma looks to be a quarter inch under 6 foot.
Mon said on 10/Jun/15
Jewel. I think a lot of models are billed as taller because that gets them work, but if they move into films their agents may well think claiming 6 foot will cost them work. I was overestimating Tarentino by a half inch (though she is as tall as him with moderate high heels). Maybe she isn't quite the full two yards tall. But I am absolutely certain she is a stronger 5'11 than listed here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/May/15
Affleck had 3in on her. That's why he's listed a fraction over 6ft2 and Thurman a fraction over 5ft11.
Judd said on 21/May/15
M, it she is 6' then Affleck has to be 6'3" because he had 3" on her...
I think she's closer to 5'11 than 6'...5'11-11.25" is better tran 5'11.75-6'0"...
M said on 19/May/15
She is for sure 6' tall (1.83m)
Mon said on 14/May/15
Women don't like being thought oversized, and very tall actresses especially have good reason for falsely claiming to be shorter than they are. Been watching Kill Bill. If she is as listed above David Carradine needs maybe an inch taken from his listed height. Throughout KB they seem to be shooting angles to hide her height relative to his, though she wears rock bottom shoes. In the extras docu Tarantino calls her gargantuan. Her head seems really big in shot with Carradine's, while her feet (you get to see a lot of her feet) look huge. IMO she is still six foot tall when she goes to bed in the evening. In the KB collection extras there is a deleted scene in which Carradine seems somewhat shorter than her.
Judd said on 9/May/15
James101 says on 23/Apr/15
Rob, what's the lowest she could be?
[Editor Rob: just over 5ft 11, generally she looks taller than just 5ft 11.]

IMO her low height is 180,5 cms, and probably wakes up at 182,5 cms...
5'11.25" is fair or even a very strong 5'11"...

mrHeight said on 20/Feb/15
She is really 5'11. Definitely 5'11. She maybe can be 5'10.5, but 5'11 sounds better. Here there's a pic that will explain this better:

Click Here

While Travolta's peak height was 6'0.5 back then, he really looked about 4 centimeters taller than Thurman in that pic.
MasterX said on 1/Jan/15
Uma is like a weak 5'11. Shes a solid 5'10.5 girl. She looked 1.5 inches shorter than bryan greenberg who is 6'0
in the movie Prime
Fred said on 29/Nov/14
I just saw her on the Swedish talkshow "Skavlan". The host Fredrik Skavlan is 183 cm and when Uma stood next to him, there was a clear difference of at least 5-6 cm or 2 inches. Uma was wearing pumps with a 2 inch heel and Fredrik Skavlan dress shoes with a heel of appr. 1.25 inch. She is definitely not taller than 176-177 cm. Just search for Skavlan and Uma and you will probably agree.
Lee Whit said on 3/Oct/14
Just watched "be cool" equal to Travolta so has to be near 6'... or just under.
177cmGuy said on 11/Aug/14
Uma looked 5'11.25 next to 6'0 John Travolta in Pulp Fiction. At minimum she is 180cm. Anyone assuming 175cm is joking themselves.
Just said on 12/Apr/14
@MT Uma is taller than Nicole Kidman, so Uma can't be just 5'9. This listing is legit.
Anon said on 8/Mar/14
She doesn't stand much shorter than John Travolta in Pulp Fiction promo shots (she's not even standing straight compared to him). She can't be far from his 6'0+ measure.
MT said on 25/Jan/14
I just spotted Uma at a restaurant in NYC and there's no way she's 5'11". She's tall for a woman, but she's about 5'9", maybe 5'10" tops. Every celebrity lies about their height. And yes, she put on a little weight. She's still attractive, but she looks ordinary.
CL said on 29/Nov/13
I posted on here before that I sat next to Uma on a couple occasions at my favorite sushi bar. She always wore flats and was always consistently an inch taller than me. I stand 5'10" dead even and typically wear shoes with 1" heels. This height is dead on.
nona said on 12/Nov/13
Uma is easily atleast 6 ft tall. Off late she has put on some weight and has fillled out her frame nicely. In the pic on this site she looks to be about 140 lbs but now she is closer to 160 lbs with nice shapely hips and a filled out chest
Aerocobbler said on 29/Aug/13
She's 5'11.5. She's said so herself. Change this please.

181cm. She is about the same height as elle macpherson who is listed as 183cm.
truth178cm said on 4/Jun/13
at least 5ft11.
D said on 26/May/13
Pardon me, but if we accept that John Travolta was 6' in his prime, how on earth can Uma be 5'11''? In "Pulp Fiction they are both barefoot in one scene (the dance) and he is clearly 3'' taller-at the very least.
Those who claim there was 1'' max are probably either drunk or simply have no idea what an inch actually looks like.
Dmeyer said on 12/Mar/13
Uma 181cm plus 1cm sleepers 182cm caradine looks max 182-183cm 1.7 in heels on so 5'10-10.5 by kill Bill time

Looks too tall NeXT to caradine to be just 180cm 181cm is better thanks Rob , also 181cm is close enaugh 5'11 to claim it

Zach said on 26/Feb/13
When I saw her as Poison Ivy in Batman and Robin, she looked very smoking hot and that's my favorite movie with her in it. Arnold Schwarzenegger played Mr. Freeze saying, "TONIGHT'S FORECAST: A FREEZE IS COMING!" I bet that was funny! Uma Thurman looked hot in Batman and Robin. Gotta have that!
Dmeyer said on 14/Jan/13
Rob i met her she looked taller than flat 5'11 she was 2-2.5 in taller than travolta in 1 inch shoes like 6'3.5 shoes on , please upgreat her 5'11.25 as i think she could be 5'11.5 and rounds down

181cm and smoking hot!

Rob, any comments on her and Elle Macpherson? Do you think she looks taller or shorter?

they could be very similar, one (Uma) rounding down to 5ft 11 a bit.

Yeah Dmeyer I think you're right she can look 6'3" range in heels. I think 5'11.5".

IF she is. 5'11 travolta was never 6'0.25 , she said im Like. 5'11 not i am
Dmeyer said on 2/Oct/12
Rob she towerd me and travolta in person if she says im Like 5'11 it could mean 11.25-11.5-11.75 she did have 3.5-4 in type she apeared taller than Nicole Kidman and theron in heels travolta wearing 1 in shoes 8 years ago was easy 5-6cm shorter
Bobby said on 29/Sep/12
I was 6"1.5" for much of my life. Live long enough, and our height diminishes.
Now at age 62, I'm a mere 6'0". If she says 5'11", I'd say she's right. What difference does it make. She's obvious got a great figure and supermodel height for over 40 or any age. I would never throw her any woman like her out of bed.
Johnnyfive said on 16/Sep/12
5'11 is correct for her. I saw Pulp Fiction again for the 50th time and she consistently looks an inch shorter than 6'0 John Travolta in it, especially when they both dance barefoot, in that scene she even looks like an inch and a half shorter.
logan noll 1996 said on 9/Aug/12
5'11 sounds right.
Sam said on 25/Jan/12
She was not towered by Travolta but in Pulp Fiction they dance barefoot together and Travolta is taller than her by at least a solid inch.
SIlent d said on 24/Jan/12
She was never towered by travolta. How do you know travolta wasn't wearing lifts? Anything under 180cm is ridiculous. I think 181cm is right on the money. Nearly a full six foot.
justathought said on 21/Jan/12
It's interesting to notice that all of those here who say they have seen her for real have a guess of 6 feet, max 1 inch less. Given her own statement, the 5'11 sounds fair
steven said on 17/Jan/12
she can't be rounded down her height. more i see her she look struggling to hit on 5'10.75 shes probably 5'10.5 and not more.
CL said on 11/Jan/12
she sat next to me at sushi bar in west LA. at one point, we were both standing, and she was about 1" taller (in flats). I'm 5'10" even and was wearing normal dress shoes. 5'11.5" sounds on the money.
maio said on 9/Jan/12
5 ft 10.75 in/180 cm is fair for her. No more and no less!
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 3/Jan/12
No way she's 182cm, she's 177-178cm at best. That's still pretty tall for a woman though, impressive.

She looked an inch shorter than Travolta in Pulp Fiction barefoot dancing scene. So she may be somewhere between 181-182.

Thurman and Weaver who are obviously very tall women are downgraded, while short guys like Cruise or Bieber are upgraded by users... how come?

no. Weaver is(was) legit 180cm. Thurman is also 180, not 182. Cruise is strong 171-2, only the press downgrades this guy. Bieber probably isn't even 5ft4.

She's been photographed at Cannes on the red carpet next to Robert DeNiro. She appears to be a full foot taller than him. I imagine she's wearing heels under her long gown.

definetely 5.11 barefoot: in Pulp Fiction, she wears no heels and is towered by 6ft Travolta

I agree with Rampage(-_-_-)Clover.

Without 4inch heels she's 2 inches shorter than Quentin Tarantino , and 1 inch taller than him in heels. So if Tarantino is 6'1 barefoot and 6'2 with shoes on, then Uma is 5'11 barefoot and 6'3 with heels on.
That makes sense.

She didn't look that tall in Pulp Fiction because her co-stars were taller. John Travolta is above 6 and she seemed almost as tall as him when they were dancing on the stage barefoot.

jf said on 14/May/09
I'd highly doubt Uma Thurman is 5'11.5" tall barefoot. I think Famke Janssen is legit at that size. I think Uma may be a whole inch shorter at perhaps 5'10"+

Someone several posts down said they saw her barefooted and thought she looked 5'9". Wiry, lanky people ALWAYS look about 2" taller than they actually are. See Leonardo DiCaprio in his youth. He's filled out now but he's still very lanky for his height. He's probably got the arms of a 6'3" man.
Doug said on 5/Apr/09
As actresses in Hollywood, the land of the short man, women like Thurman and Janssen who would appear a legit 6' feel like freaks and of course are afraid to admit they are 6 foot. Conventionally it would be difficult for women this tall to get acting roles and they stand around 3-4 inches taller than the typical actor in Hollywood on average, evne more so if wearing heels. Given that there aren't exactly an abundance of 6'2" actors in Hollywood, casting these women must be difficult. It is because both Thurman and Jannsen are great actresses and have something special about them including superb bodies that they get these roles. In the action genre they are superb.
Doug said on 5/Apr/09
Both Thurman and Janssen are brushing 6 foot. Don't know what world you are living in Chuck the Smuck but for both parents to be verging off the height chart for both genders as a legit 6'4" and 5'11" is very uncommon, less than 1%. It is far more common for say the dad to be very tall at 6'4"-6'6" and the mother to be short or tallish 5'8" or the mother to be tall at 5'10" and father of average height (Liv Tylers parents). Few people have super tall genes on both sides of the family otherwise the average height would be well over 6 foot. It is however undoubtedly uncommon for somebody to have a 6'4" dad and near 6 foot mother and have the "tallest" genes, unless you;re in the NBA or like Thurman are unusually tall. Even Yao Ming at 7'6" has a 6'7" father and 6'2" mother. I suppose you think this is normal too? Tallest parents I've seen were around 6'7" and 6'3" and their son, yes he was around 6'8-6'9".
Alex said on 3/Mar/09
5'9-5'10 for Uma? No way. Shes minimum 5'11. A lot of girls who are 6'0 or just under will claim 5'10-5'11.
anon said on 22/Feb/09
she's like 6'1"
The reason I say this is because all female celebs lie about their height?
Most want to make themselves seem taller, but when you're that tall you'd wouldn't want people to think you were a giant so you'd tell people you were 5'11" when infact I bet she's really an inch or two taller than that
ChucktheSchmuck said on 3/Feb/09

Her mother was 5'11 and her dad was 6'4? My God that an extremely uncommonly tall genetic heritage.

Her mother was 5'11 and her dad was 6'4? My God that an extremely uncommonly tall genetic heritage. A lot of male basketball players have parents that height and a lot of them grow to 6'8"-6'10". Yao Ming's mother was 6'2" and his father 6'7" and he grew to 7'6"!!! She's lucky shes not 6'2" or taller.

I met Uma a couple years back at a film festival here. I'm 5'10" in flats, she was in flats as well and seemed only to be very very slightly taller than me. I think 5'11" is accurate.

Just returned from Harbor Island Bahamas where I saw Uma Thurman on the beach, barefoot, and at Dinner in sandals. I am 5'8" and She was definitley not more than 5'9". Maybe close to 5'10". In high heels I was a tad taller. (and flat foot at the doctor I have been measured at 5'7.5") Very naturally lean and lanky but not extremely tall. She didn't act like a snotty celebrity, very gregarious and very cool. Just thought people would like to know. I always thought she was 6 feet. My husband and I were surprised.

Leung said on 29/Oct/08
Mel, I have some tall friends. A couple are like you in that they feel conscious of their height and feel awkward or insecure especially when people stare at them, and because of this they hunch over with bad posture in an attempt to try and blend in with everyone else. Unfortunately it looks terrible and sends a message to people that you are insecure and have low self esteem.

On the other hand I got tall friends that love being tall and enjoy the fact that they tower over most people, they walk tall and confidentially and happily acknowledge that they are different but different in a good way.

So you can view your height as being a curse OR you can view it as being a blessing.
Teddy89 said on 28/Oct/08
There is a tv commercial in italy where there are uma, hugh laurie and zlatan ibrahimovic (192 cm) . They are waiting for the self service and they look the same heigh, so probably she's even taller, 185 cm i think!

I just turned 18 and I'm 6' or so, Uma is seriously an inspiration. I really hate all the people commenting on my height and staring at me... I don't know, it's hard being different. I'm so glad theres women out there who've overcame their insecurities.

Keep in mind, in virtually all movies Umie is in they make her look smaller than she is. It'd look funny if the girl was taller than the guy, which she is. So for example in Pulp Fiction, there's some trick photography going on to make her look "noticeably shorter" than Jackson, Travolta.

C. said on 21/Feb/08
I'm curious as to what Uma was like...cos usually those ultra tall women who are like 5'8", 5'9" PLUS are tall from very early on, just like you. My sister had a girl like that in her class a few years ago. She was like 12 and 5'6"-5'7", she was a FREAK ! (No offense to you or anything !). But she was also humongous in general, she was well obese so she was huge in every sense, not just height. This made her seem even more like a giant.

I suspect Uma was around 6' before she hit high-school or when she just started. Either that, or she continued to grow right up until she hit adulthood.

I was projected to be 5'4" then 6'2" as a child but thankfully, they were both far off the mark. I don't find anything wrong with either heights, but both are kind of extreme. At around 10 or so I was 5'6" and I continually grew, but just slowed down. Most women do stop at 14-16 (sometimes as low as 12-13), but not me. I'll be 21 in less than two months yet I kept growing up until 3-4 months ago. I hope that's the end of it too-- it's a hassle buying new clothes. And modeling...well, let's just say you have to be really stuck on yourself. It's not for everyone. And ironically, it's the shorter girls who seem to want to be models so badly (as in, fashion), and always boost up their height while at the same time lie about their weight. About six years ago, I remember a girl who was around 5'6" or so and her mother forced her into stating that she was 2" taller and 10-15 lbs. smaller. It was quite ridiculous.
Anonymous said on 14/Feb/08
@ C. Well why then ? Why are you saying 5'8" if you're 5'9" ??? It's not like it's a bad thing !! It's not like admitting you committed a murder or something !

Tell you what : it might be true that guys aren't too fond of girls taller than them but it really depends on the girl . I mean, HERE at least most guys would kill to get laid by one of those really hot supermodels (you know, like the Victoria's Secret ones !) like Adriana Lima, Giselle etc, even though they're obviously taller than most of them !! We like women who feel sexy and comfortable in their own skin . And Adriana Lima (even IN her 3-4 inch heels) strutting her stuff and walking super-tall is always sexier than another tall girl who is walking like she has back problems just to appear smaller !! Just my two cents !

Just on a sidenote , I remembered one other tall woman with no problems with her height. An ex-classmate of mine was (well still is I'd suppose !) about 5'10" (I measured her !!!) and she'd always wear 3-4" heels whenever there was a school party or any social event. She'd be looking down on me from her 6 foot PLUS height !
C. said on 11/Feb/08
@ Anonymous: Sounds like myself. I've been saying I'm 5'8" for the longest, as my driver's license says the same. However, one of my brothers is an actual 5'8" and we clearly do not look the same heightwise. That, and I clearly cannot pass for that height any longer, especially since I'm more often than not overestimated. At my college there are clearly tall girls, but it's tricky since they often wear boots, large heels, etc. to appear even taller. I, on the other hand, do not and I'm still taller than the majority on campus.

Uma though, looks 6'. Her 5'11" claim is

i agree gramps and Anonymous, i have a good friend who is 6-2 maybe 6-2.5 barefoot and he is seeing a girl at the minute who says she is 5-11 and she always wears flats and slouches and still looks the same height as him shes a legit 6-1, and at 5-9 she absolutely dwarfs me, but its nothing to be ashamed of
Anonymous said on 10/Feb/08
It IS true that tall women downplay their height because they're insecure. Virtually all tall women I know except for my mum downplay their height. They usually cut of 1-2 inches. I don't know why they do feel that way though, being a guy. I mean I can get that they are afraid that guys won't find them attractive if they're taller's not necessarily always that way. I think there are far less guys who find tall women unattractive than they actually think.

My mum is 5'9" and for here that's VERY tall for a woman , she's taller than at least 90% of the women here (here being Greece) if not more, and she's the same height or even a smidge taller than most guys (I think your average guy around here is about 5'8", I might be wrong but at least that's how it seems to me, so at 5'9"-5'9.25" flat she's about 0.5-1" taller than your average guy as well). Lately she's been cool with her height, but it hasn't always been that way. I remember when I was younger, like 10 years ago, she'd always try to pass as 5'7.5" and people said "yeah right !"...then it became 5'8"....then 5'8.5"....and now finally she admits that she is 5'9" or even a hair over. Like a celebrity but in reverse, haha !

Two tall girl friends or mine, one is 5'8" and the other is 5'10", are always downplaying their height to 5'7" and 5'8.5" respectively. I try to tell them to be proud of it but they don't really feel like it ! The funny thing is the 5'8" girl is MORE upset about her height than the 5'10" one !!! The taller one will occasionally admit she's 5'10" but the 5'8" one never ever !!! And one of my mum's sisters (she has 3) is (no joke) 6'1" (!!!!) and she's obviously a giantess but she tries to pass as 5'10"-5'10.5", that's what she said when I asked her how tall she was.

C. im 5'6" (legit) so im 2 inches taller then average. until recently i was only 5'2" and so i was petite. when i was last at school (at height 5'5 - 5'6") i would wear shoes that would bump me up to 5'8", whih werent that obvious so i really felt tall and most people didnt notice

so i experienced being petite, being average and being tall within around a year of each other. i can honestly say being tall feels sooo much better then anything else!! cant put my finger on why, its just better!!

That's great. But unfortunately tall women (as in, 5'8"-9" and up) do not always feel that way. When you're 5'5"-6" that's still pretty normal in terms of female height. But when you're 6' like Uma, that may very well be the case. You're taller than the average man and virtually almost all women (at 8" taller than the avg.), and that does not always equate to good self-esteem. For the longest, it's been the ideal for a woman to be short or petite, although recently it's becoming more 'accepted' (note that I put that in quotes) for tall, statuesque women to be considered attractive. 5'2" is petite, but there's nothing wrong with that height. I was your current height at ten-eleven years of age, and that definitely did not make me feel better about myself at that age. And I'm still taller than the majority of women but I'm an adult. I can deal.

However, Uma is 2" taller than I so I can't say that if I were that height I would necessarily be happy/comfortable at that height. TNTinCA just mentioned that she suffers from body dysmorphic disorder so right there is an indication that she has issues with her height. So being (truly) tall, again, does not necessarily equate to great self esteem.
Gramps said on 9/Feb/08
I notice at the top here, Uma says "I'm like 5'11"." When a girl says that, the translation is she's 6'0 or taller!
TNTinCA said on 8/Feb/08
Uma has admitted that she suffers from body dysmorphic disorder, which is a psychological condition that makes people continuously believe they have physical flaws. That being said, I think she DOES downplay her height as a consequence of that condition. She probably wrongly assumes she is "freakish" for her height when in actuallity, she is statuesque and stunning. So my guess is that she is 6 foot even. Every photo and movie I have seen her in leads to that conclusion.

I agree with people that claims Uma is 6' or even taller. I just saw this 2005 movie named "Be Cool", There is a sccene where Travolta dances with Uma, Travolta is using normal shoes while Uma is using snickers (veri thin sole), eventhoug it looked most of the time that Uma is taller than Travolta. Here is a foto to make my point, the foto is not the perfect one since is not a full body take and their postures are not the same. Is a lot usefull to watch the movie. Click Here

She looks taller than 5'11" to me. You can't see the ground on this pic so how do you know it's favoring her? But then again, that's your opinion. She looks 6' at least.
C. said on 19/Nov/07
She truly looks 6', if not more. And very tall women definitely do downplay their height-- after all, being 6' tall easily dwarfs many of the lead hunks in Hollywood whom are known lift-wearers. And even if tall may be the 'in' thing in Hollywood, for an already tall woman like Uma boosting up her height just seems preposterous. Kidman is shorter and also does the leaning in/crooked posture like Uma in photos, and has said herself she's been self-conscious about her height. And you're telling me Uma isn't (or hasn't/still isn't) being so tall?

Sure, models love to brag about their height (in order to make up for cutoff heights and whatnot; not to mention that's what's required in the first place for a model), but most TRULY tall women (I'm talking 5'8"+ range; especially those over 6' tall) don't like to draw more emphasis on their height than necessary. One of my female friends who's around 6'2" always downplays her height at an exact 6'. It's ridiculous, although I admit that I myself have been guilty of doing so in the past, although I'm 5'9". Believe it or not, many tall women downplay their height, even if it's by an half-inch or whatever just to "fit in". Being little and petite is still favored, and with all of the short females in Hollywood like that of the rest of the population, I find it unlikely that Uma's going to up her height and thus declare herself as the "giant" of the bunch.

If you aren't a tall female you wouldn't understand (unless you're comfortable with your height and that's great of course! I'm still struggling myself). It's not the same as it is for the guys-- it's frustrating to be singled out and deemed as the 'big girl' (even if you're rail-thin like Uma) amongst the crowd.

So I'm going with 6'. Thurman has definitely downplayed her height for vanity, as mentioned by several others previously.

Uma is 6' she said so in a biography show. to all of you who keep saying that actress lie about their height for roles. that is bull these women do not need to lie about their height. They are celebrated for being tall, talented and georgous.

Rob, i have seen listings for Uma at 5-10(in bigheadedpygmies or sth like that) and Jorge Garcia at 5-9.She said that she is 5-11;Why she claimed that she is shorter than in real life?Maybe because she is?And if Garcia is 5-11.25 ,they list him at 175cm???That's impossible;if he was 5-11 even a blind man would notice the difference,it is 6cm!I have never seen in my life a legit 5-11(as he listed here)put down at 5-9.Is it possible that they are so wrong or they are way shorter than we imagine?Rob?

Editor Rob
There's 0% chance he is 5ft 9. People can estimate or list whatever they want though.

"Ted says on 22/Aug/07
I think Franco is right.Maybe we all lead on with her giant heels.But still 181-182 "

Thanks "father ted" hehehe :D yeah, she does look 181-182cm, not less than 181 not more than 182. ;)

i believe her true barefoot height is 182cm. but in most of cases she looks taller. For example in this pic seem like 185 or 186

When she was on the view she said she was 5'11 1/2

Franco said on 22/Aug/07
Uma Thurman is 181-182cm, infact she looks more 181 than 182 but of course with heels she's a giant and the overestimation begins.

she can be 190cm in heels that's for sure.

i dont find her gorgeous or even beautiful though,but thats my personal opinion. :) i prefer Jennifer Morrison and Drew Barrymore. hehe
Rider said on 19/Aug/07
she's got to be 6ft, but who cares? she's gorgeous!
ted said on 19/Aug/07
182cm for Uma is very precise.She is not over six feet.Actually she looks shorter than John Glover(181cm) in Batman and robin.Although i don't know if he wore lifts.
fp said on 19/Aug/07
Wow! she's a giant, she has to be 6'0+ because even if she has heels on it does'nt matter because if she stood up straight she could look right over the top of glenn's head. I've seen guys listed on this site as being 6'2+ that don't stand any taller than she is there. I think I saw a pic of glenn and the Rock and he was only a little taller than that.
Don said on 17/Aug/07
She's 6' & maybe a bit taller than that too. Misha & Anthony are right. She has to round down. If you're a 6 foot woman, you'll probably never get cast on anything other than sci-fi or on a friend's indie pic, meanwhile the Halle Berrys' & Scarlett Johanssons' can go out for any part.
Anonymous said on 6/Aug/07
my guess was 6'0
ethan hawke and her looked the same but yes, i agree with tall's comment
joe said on 19/Jul/07
I saw those pics too. Elle slouches in many of the pics. In some pics, Elle is 2 inches taller, in some Uma is 2 inches tallet, in some they are the same. She is 100% at least 6 foot (Elle is 6 Feet) or a little taller.
Leung said on 8/Jul/07
Saw recent pictures of Thurman and Elle Macpherson and Thurman looked about 1.5 inches taller than Elle, so yeah Thurman could very well be a legit 6'
Juillet said on 5/Jul/07
she is 6'. i am a woman and am 6' and i've met her and we are eye to eye. we were both in flats.

Here it is, guys, women who are six feet tall routinely downplay their height because we are tired of the comments from total strangers. In pictures we lean, bend at the knee, especially when we are taking pics with shorter men and most of them are shorter.
asdf said on 5/Jun/07
I agree that she is at least 6 feet, maybe even over. I remember watching the E True Hollywood Story about her and they said she was 6 feet at 13 when she first started modeling. I'm sure she grew a bit more since then.
Betty said on 27/May/07

She towered on me when I met her last year. I am round 5ft 6 and I only came up to her chin and she was only standing in barefeet.
