American actress and singer best known for playing Rocky Blue on tv show Shake It Up and the 2013 series of Dancing With the Stars. She once said her height was "Five Eight" in a video q&a., but in 2013 began to claim standing in the 5ft 10 range and loved being tall.

Comment on the Height of Zendaya

She looks 5'9
Jay said on 5/Nov/15
She is not 5'7
Sophie said on 4/Nov/15
I think she's more like 5 ft 7 as she looks 3 inches shorter than Taylor in bad blood and all the pics with Taylor

What do you think of this, Rob? He claims she's in sneakers Click Here
[Editor Rob: impossible to tell without seeing if the sneakers are those type of ladies elevator high top sneakers.]
Allie said on 18/Oct/15
Surprised she's only 5'8-5'9 given her parents height. They don't look 6'4, Actually, scratch that. They look near it. More so with her mother. I think 6'4 may have been her morning height, she's looks 6'3. She doesn't even come up to their eyebrows.But I believe she was younger so who knows. But they do look 6'0 range obviously. Then again, judging from the pictures, Zendaya ended up being a skinny twig. Both her parents look like they could snap her with a hug tbh.

Sorry if that sounded mean but it's kind of the truth. Her parents look much more fuller and she just looks high fashion model skinny. Maybe both of them were the tall out liners while their siblings were short or average? Cause 5'8 range is by no means short in America for a female.
joe said on 12/Oct/15
Rob what do you think about this, she is in 5.5 inch heels with a one inch platform yet she isn't taller than kimmel. Do you think she might be only 5'8 flat? Click Here
[Editor Rob: the heels might give roughly 3.75 range so she has what, 2.75 inch theory she should be the same, it points to another instance of her being 173-4 range, unless she is dropping height that is hard to tell...I can't believe she is claiming 5ft 10.5 though]

This picture throws people off, she's grown since this. Please upgrade it to something from this year.
[Editor Rob: I'll embed a getty one as any of the outfits she had in from the last year didn't look flattering.]
oliver said on 1/Oct/15
Looks like 5' 9 .
Matthew190 said on 4/Sep/15
She looks about as listed to me, although I haven't seen that much of her. Her mom is quite tall, a good amount taller than she is.
Jack said on 28/Aug/15
No offense to her, but it really annoys me when tall girls like her lie about their already awesome height and the funny thing is they usually always end up as "being 5'10" tall" (like taylor swift whos actually 5'9" something) because that height usually seen as "glamorous" and "model-ideal"......well guess what? It puts down guys like me who are actually 5'10" because people see her in person and thing 5'8" is 5'10" and therefore think 5'10" is "shortish".
Other then that, I think she's a wonderful person and amazing dancer.

She looks so petite I think she's 5'7 tops

So Tall!

How tall is Kadeem Hardison?
Yo said on 7/Aug/15
Could you update the picture from something this year?
fray said on 6/Aug/15
@Dev, slip-ons with about .50" height. With slip-ons she was over 5'10", without, she would hit 5'10". An assistant had also measured her in stocking feet (I was not there) and stated she was a little under 178
Jay said on 3/Aug/15
She always looks tall on her show, and only wears shoes.
Fray said on 1/Aug/15
@Yoooooo I cast for clients (Runway/Print) as well as a costumer/tailor based in Burbank
Dev said on 1/Aug/15
@Fray Was this with or without shoes?
Yo said on 31/Jul/15
Could you update her picture from something this year?
Yoooooo said on 30/Jul/15
@Fray what is your "work"?
Fray said on 30/Jul/15
@Emily - Where did you get your info from? At work we had measured her - she was (don't know if she has grown more since then) a pretty good 5'10" (almost 178 ) and Bella is shorter than 5'8"
Emily said on 29/Jul/15
She is not 5.10, really 5.9 her max
Fiona said on 27/Jul/15
she reminds me a little bit of chanel iman.
fray said on 26/Jul/15
She WAS 5'8", but she was a kid still growing. Worked in wardrobe, and made things tougher as she shot up in height! She is at least 5'10". This needs an upgrade.
Allie said on 24/Jul/15
@Fiona - Omg you're so tall. :p. I'm 5'10 and 1/4.. apparently I'm the ideal female height.. I guess that's why a lot of women on this site have claimed it but are honestly only 5'7-5'9.. as in the case with Zendaya..

Anyways, this is right.. not really a weak 5'9 tbh.. and she's close in height to Lily A.. who isn't 5'7.. but looks to be a strong 5'8 imo..
Fiona said on 15/Jul/15
@LouLou 5.7 to 5.11 ideal female height, its not too, beautiful and leggy.
I am 6.1,5( I am real unfeminine ogre, I hate my height
Yo said on 13/Jul/15
@Celtic Warrior Bella is around 5'5/5'6
LouLou said on 10/Jul/15
Celtic Warrior 2 inches its over 5 cm! Iam 177 or 5.10 but when I'm wearing heels(only 2 inches or 5cm) I really feel like a giant, unfeminine ogre. I am taller than most people my age, even the doctor said so.
My twin sis sthorter then me 6cm over 2 inches, it is very noticeable,
for me bella is 5.7, zendaya 5.9
Mimi said on 10/Jul/15
zendaya ia 5.9 bell is 5.8
Celtic Warrior said on 9/Jul/15
Zendaya is 5'10 and Bella Thorne 5'8. It's really hard to notice the height difference when it's only 2 inches apart
Yo said on 1/Jul/15
If she is 5'8.75, Taylor Swift is around 5'7 lol
Najma said on 1/Jul/15
She is a solid 5'9
Dev said on 30/Jun/15
This needs a serious upgrade. She is 5'10".
Yo said on 29/Jun/15

@Derp Zendaya was in flats. Shay's had some heel.
Derp said on 15/Jun/15
Shay Mithcell looked taller than Zendaya in a recent photo.
Az said on 2/Jun/15
On that note, most celebrities I work with also have acne, cellulite, facial hair on women, arm pit fat, veins, you name it. Good Lighting and confidence take you to the next level. And great PR! Haha
Az said on 2/Jun/15
She is 5'8". Probably more 5'7.5" but sure, 5'8". That's a great height! But I meet a ton of celebs and it's funny how inflated heights get. It helps their "untouchable" quality from a PR standpoint but I feel it's a very negative impact on young people and for that reason I cannot support the lies. They are white lies in a sense but not when young people feel they need to be x height and x weight to be beautiful. A lot of these celebs are truly beautiful and way way shorter than they say. Teenagers and people struggling with security deserve to know how they "measure up" and that all shapes and sizes actually can be star-worthy beautiful oxx
Jay said on 1/Jun/15
Not buying that height Ax.
Yo said on 30/May/15
No, Ax is saying she's shorter than 5'8.
Natasha said on 28/May/15
ax@ that's mean she's over 5.8?
Ax said on 23/May/15
Nope. I met her in February and she is maybe 5'7" not more. My job is casting / models and production work for London fashion week NY fashion week etcetera. I see tall girls all the time and all the biggest models in the industry for near a decade. I know who is over 5'8". And I really know who is 5'10". Sorry Zendaya. Pretty girl though.
Natasha said on 21/May/15
5.9 right for her.
Bishop said on 19/May/15
I hope you know that I wasn't using that pic as comparison to Taylor. I was using it as comparing it to Lily and Martha. Lily is 5'8" and Martha is 5'10". Zendaya is the same height as Lily and shorter than Martha, so all the 5'10" claims are completely destroyed. Sorry about that :P
Yo said on 19/May/15
I'm leaning towards saying she's 5'9.
Jay said on 19/May/15
Bishop, I hope you don't uses that pic as proof. Taylor was clearly wearing super high heels, being covered by her pants. Martha Hunt is truly 5'10, yet somehow smaller then Taylor?
CS said on 17/May/15
I'm actually shocked that she is as tall as she is eve listed. She looks so petite to me
Yo said on 17/May/15
Click Here Zendaya, Lily Aldridge, Taylor Swift, Martha Hunt, and Hailee Steinfeld. Look through all the pictures for certain angles. Based off these I'd say Zendaya is around 5'8-5'8.5
Bishop said on 17/May/15
Rob, I think she's going to need a downgrade:

Jay I am talking about when you replied to my comment from, June of 2013. You need to take reading classes. Stop annoying me no one was talking to you in the first place. I WAS TELLING EVERYONE STOP TALKING ABOUT THEIR HEIGHT BECAUSE THIS IS ABOUT ZENDAYAS HEIGHT. STOP BEING SO OBSESSED ITH OTHER BOYS.
Cooldude said on 9/May/15
I first commented in June 2013 so yo annoying behind better shut up. I wa telling people no one cares about yall height this is about zendaya. So be quiet jay. You act like somebody cares about you.
Adna said on 9/May/15
@coolkid Peyton list is 5'6 btw
kate said on 7/May/15
Oh my god Zendaya is only 5ft 10 I thought she was 6ft tall.
Jay said on 7/May/15
Hey Cooldude, if you knew how to read, I commented to same month you did in November 2014. Just because you're late, doesn't mean I don't have a life.
Cooldude said on 5/May/15
Hey Jay why don't you shut up and get a life instead of replying to my comment from June of 2013.
Skye said on 29/Apr/15
Rob, do you think Zendaya could've grown at least an inch now? I know that some girls just stop growing at about 14-16, but typically, I know some that grow past that may grow an extra inch.
Jay said on 29/Apr/15
Bella is not 5'5 Yo.
louise2002 said on 28/Apr/15
@Bishop my mom is 6.1 I am only 5.6& sis at age of 13 was 5.11.5 naw 22yo she is 6.0!!
5.9 for Zendaya...
Bishop said on 27/Apr/15
No, he isn't. He's listed here at 5'7" and there is evidence to prove that is pretty much the top-end of the range for him.

Haven't seen enough pictures of her with her mom to compare so don't know how tall she really is. Her dad looks maybe 6'1-2" range.
Skye said on 25/Apr/15
@Bishop - I see. I just googled pics of her parents, and they both look noticeably taller than her.. Imo, I find it odd that she only ends up being roughly 175cm while her parents look to be near the 6ft+ range (not so sure if I believe that her mom is exactly 6'4 though),
Dev said on 24/Apr/15
Zendaya is a solid 5'10"
nebule said on 24/Apr/15
@Bishop Nick's 5'9"
Yo said on 22/Apr/15
Bella Thorne is only around 5'5 maybe 5'5 1/2... Zendaya is around 5'8-5'9
Bishop said on 20/Apr/15
Yes, it was her mom.
Skye said on 18/Apr/15
Didn't she proclaim that one of her parents was 6'4?
Helga said on 15/Apr/15
Ciara is 176cm.
Zendaya 174-175 not taller then that
@ Kendall is only 4 cm taller then Cara, so 175 MAX
Jay said on 8/Apr/15
Kendall is 5'10. Don't see her any lower then that.
Bishop said on 7/Apr/15
Here are Ciara's heels:
Click Here
Click Here
They're the same as Zendaya's. Zendaya appears shorter because she's not standing straight, but this shows she's clearly not 5'10" like she or some here claim.

She's a lot taller than Kendall because she's closer to the camera and wearing much higher heels than her. And I don't think Kendall is as tall as she is listed here.
Yo said on 7/Apr/15
Yeah she is wearing 5.5 inch heels
Yo said on 6/Apr/15

Can she really tower over the jenner girls if she's only 5'9?
Jay said on 5/Apr/15
Bishop, you can't even see the heels on Ciara. Noway is she lower.
coolkid said on 29/Mar/15
I have Peyton list listed at 5'7" and here she is with Zendaya Click Here can't tell what shoes Peyton is wearing though. They look similar
Yo said on 29/Mar/15
I'd say between 5'8-5'9
Bishop said on 27/Mar/15
Here are pictures of her in similar heels with 5'8" Ciara:

This listing is actually quite generous.
Jay said on 25/Mar/15
Still needs an upgrade.
Kira said on 7/Mar/15
She is 5.10... thanks for her huge head
Princess said on 2/Mar/15
I've met her and she pretty tall. I'm 5'8 and she wasn't too much taller than me so about 5'10 seems right.
Yo said on 26/Feb/15
No she is at least 5'10

How do people think she is 5 6 or 5 8 or whatever!?! Bella Thorne is 5 8 and Zendaya still towers her. Not as much as she use to but still.
Yo said on 25/Jan/15
Y'all crazy if you don't think she's 5'10
keny said on 24/Jan/15

RAR said on 23/Jan/15

with Olivia Holt (157 + 10cm heels = 167) So.... 175 - 176cm height for Zendaya seems right.

Doink said on 17/Dec/14
Claimed to be "about 5'10" and 1/2" on Twitter last month
BGee said on 28/Nov/14
She's certainly more in the 5'8.5 - 5'9 range than 5'10.
Jay said on 11/Nov/14
Hey cooldude, why don't you get off a site called celebheights? And yeah she and her mom are tall.
Cool Dude said on 7/Nov/14
She is not tall and her mom isn't either and everyone stop talking about your height no one cares.

No she's definitely 5'10"

Ok to all of yall, zendaya is about 5'11 ! I met her the other day and i'm 5'10 1.78 cm and she was about an inch taller than me! She was wearing flats and i was wearing griffeys! So it clearly seems that she's either 1.79 or 1.80 cm

Ok I met her and she towered over me in flats. I'm 5'6" and i was looking way up at her. Id say shes a weak 5'11"
Comets said on 23/Jul/13
she towers over them because they are very short? when u are 5'8 and surrounded by 5'2' will look like a giant
Jay said on 17/Jul/13
Why hasn't her height changed on here yet? She's clearly 5'10 now. Watch an episode of her show, as she towers over most of them, or DWTS.
andi said on 15/Jul/13
never saw her as 5'10 let alone 5'11. 5'8 seems like a good height

they got her height right but she really isnt tall she is not 5'11 i dont mean to be rude sorry her mom isnt 6'4 i seen the video where she said it but we dont have proof because Zendaya is the same height as briget mendler who is 5'6
Jay said on 3/May/13
Yep, girls not lying about her height. She's grown since last year.
mm said on 17/Apr/13
On DWTS last night, she was as tall as Maks with her heels on. Maks is 6'2". She was taller than Val in her heels who is 6". So, 5'11" seems like she's telling the truth.
Editor Rob said on 3/Apr/13
She used a 'sixfooter' has tag last month, and she probably is Six foot in heels.
Jay said on 2/Apr/13

She's taller then Khloe Kardashian who is listed as 5'9 so UPGRADE!

She was on Jimmy Kimmel and said she was 5´10 Lol. She was wearing like 4 inch heels and still was only Jimmy´s height. 5´8 seems right.
Sel said on 17/Mar/13
Im so jealous of her because she's tall! Im turning 18 in a few months and im only 5'1 and what made it worse my dr said i stopped growing. Anyway my sister who's turning 20 is 5'5, my 12 year old brother is 5'7 and my mom is 5'9. I would kill to be 5'5 right now. If not 5'5 by 5'4. But I love zendaya
Ali said on 17/Feb/13
She has grown and is 5'11 now
Kas said on 7/Feb/13
She is 5ft11! She said it on ryan seacrest
theblacklab said on 3/Dec/12
She's past 16 now, and she's already tall. My guess is that she'll get to 5'9". I estimate an inch of growth for girls past 16. 2-3 for boys. Of course, that's not always the case. She could grow more or less. However, she's already tall, so I doubt she grow more than an inch. I doubt she'll grow less either. 5'9" seems perfectly plausable for her as I read somewhere her mother was extremely tall. Who knows, she might even get to 5'10", but the chances are slim.
Illena said on 19/Nov/12
P.S: Click Here!gal[gallery1]/10/, This doesn't look 5'9 let alone 5'11, she's 5'8 at most.
Illena said on 19/Nov/12
Just because she say's she's 5'11 doesn't mean she is. I can say I'm 5'11 but I'm not. She's probably around 5'8 no taller, and if she does grow any more I doubt it will be more than an inch. Plus, didn't she claim 5'7 like a year and a half ago? 14-16 year old girl don't grow 4 inches in a year, so 5'11/5'10 is impossible.

watcher said on 14/Nov/12
in a interview recently with Ryan Seacress he asked them how tall they were and Thorne said 5'5" and Zendaya said she was 5'10' then whispered
Lena said on 5/Nov/12
It's impossible she's 5'10. She doesn't have the proportions of a 5'10 person. Also, I saw her and she was way shorter than me, and I'm 5'9 at best. So I doubt she's any taller than 5'7.
Opps said on 6/Oct/12
Allie she older than Bella so she taller than her a little bit
Allie said on 23/Aug/12
why is she listed as 5'10" on a website? there is no way she's 5'10", she looks the same height in comparison to Bella Thorne who is 5'3" and I'm sure Zendaya is still 5'8"
bleh said on 14/Aug/12
they always call her "that tall girl" on the show, but her and bella still seem so short... i mean i thought bella was wat? 5'1, but hey i dont really care anymore. disney channel is boring now. i wish they would bring in good shows from early 2000
