American Actress best known for roles in movies like Kiss the Girls, Double Jeopardy and High Crimes. In memoir 'All that is bitter and sweet' I read her saying "my five foot seven inch frame (a healthy weight for me is 130 pounds)"

She probably is 5'6.5-5'6.75 but rounds up and says 5'7

Here's a photo of Ashley Judd with Sienna Miller (5'5") and Bill Clinton (6'2").
You can see all of them from head to toe. Clinton and Judd are standing up fairly straight, Miller is a bit slouching.
If Miller and Clinton's heights are accurate then adusting for the height of their shoes, I think 5'6" to 5'7" for Ashley Judd is about right. She's wearing high heels and both Miller and Clinton's heels are shorter, but she's about 5" shorter than Clinton in this photo, and with 3" heels compared to his 1" heels, that makes her 7" shorter in bare feet. That puts her at 5'7". She's also clearly about 3" taller than Sienna Miller in this photo but her heels are probably 2" higher, which means she's 1" taller than Miller in bare feet, putting her at 5'6".
Ashley Judd is much taller than both her mother Naomi and her sister Wynonna. But their reported heights may be inflated. To me Wynonna looks to be about 5'4" tall.

Wynonna Judd says she's 5' 5" and Ashley Judd is taller than her. 5' 5.5" is too short. 5' 6.5" - 5' 7" at best.

5'5"at most she is very small and petite.

i remember in double jeopardy , she stood at 5'8 on the height charge. of course im sure that was exaggerated. anyways, i usually think the listings onthis site is most accurate. btw, she is quite attractive.

Ashley's definitely taller than her half-sister Wynonna who is also listed as 5'5" - so ...?

She looks taller

I believe she's 5ft 5.5in. She was a guest in Anderson once, wearing what seems to be a 3-4inch pumps. Even so, she was still a few inches shorter standing beside Anderson Cooper who is a 5'10.

Editor Rob said on 13/Aug/11
I did find she described herself as 5ft 7 in a book.

i watched double jeopardy the other night on tv-there's a scene where tommy lee jones is holding up ashley's mugshot of her arrest, and she's standing directly in front of a height chart-no heels, she didn't wear heels almost the entire movie. the top of her head came directly to the 5'6 mark-which i think she truly is. so, glenn and rob, if u see this movie, keep an eye out for the height chart-it proves she's 5 foot 6-then i think it's time for an upgrade.

naomi judd is no smaller than 5'4, it's clear next to both daughters-i believe wynonna is 5'5, ashley 5'6-ish, she's not much smaller.they're all average height-ashley has some height advantage over the other 2, i think. or maybe her slender frame makes her appear taller?

Noami Judd isn't 5'5. Google some old pics of she and Wynonna, and you'll see Wynonna is clearly a few inches taller. I'm guessin' she's more like 5'2. In which case, Glenn's 5'5 is plausible.

I JUST WATCHED THE e! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY OF THE JUDDS AND NAOMI CLEARLY STATED SHE HERSELF WAS 5'5, WHICH SHE DOES LOOK. WYONNA STATED 5'5.5, WHICH IS ALSO BELIEVEABLE, SHE HAD ABOUT A SMIDGE MORE ON HER THAN HER MOTHER. WHEN ALL 3 LADIES STOOD NEXT TO EACH OTHER FOR A PICTURE, ASHLEY WAS CLEARLY AT LEAST AN INCH AND A HALF MORE THAN HER MOTHER. I'D GIVE HER ABOUT 5'6.5, EASY. NO LESS.

I had an acting class with her at the University of Kentucky in 1989. I was 19 and 5' 9". She was 20 at the time, so definitely full grown. Obviously, it has been a while, but because she was already kinda famous at school (because of her mother and sister), I definitely remember her. We all had to go barefoot in that class as well. She was much curvier then and used to wear alot of baggy clothes like big overalls. I remember her being average height to me, but not short, which would be in the 5' 4.5" to 5' 5.5" range.
If she had been 5' 7", I would have remembered her as being "tall". Since I was only 5' 9" barefoot. She was very focussed and quiet at school. I once told her if we got married, her name would be Ashley Ashley! (as Ashley is my last name). But apparently, she thought she'd get a little further with "Judd" ;-)

yeah, she's 5'7, no doubt about it. think about it-why would she lie or get listed at 5'7 EVERYWHERE, if she was really only 5'5? 5'5 is not short! she wouldn't be embarrassed to admit that, and would not get listed wrong-she is 5'7-she needs to be upgraded.

if you didn´t believe me, juanes is 5´8 right ??? ok now look at the picture of ashley and Juanes (along with salma and the guatemalan president)....she´s taller than him !
Anonymous said on 16/Jan/07
ashley judd is 5´7, maybe even a little taller, i met her in Guatemala, she was with salma Hayek and a colombian singer named Juanes, she looked tall about an inch shorter than me....I´m 5´8 barefoot...there is NO WAY she is 5´4, NO WAY....
anonymous said on 12/Jan/07
YES, I DID IN NY A FEW YEARS BACK-I'M A 5'7 TALL WOMAN, SHE WAS THE EXACT SAME HEIGHT AS ME! WE BOTH HAD HEELS ON. VERY PRETTY, GREAT FIGURE, TALL, SLENDER. NO WAY 5'5.
Glenn said on 28/Dec/06
No way.I met her.did you?
anonymous said on 27/Dec/06
again, wrong height-must be haters! 5'6-5'7, c'mon, people
mcfan said on 13/Nov/06
She's got very tiny features so it's not surprising she's shorter in person than she appears on screen.
said on 27/Oct/06
i know that she looks shorter than 5 ft 7 in, but try this : Click Here
, there is that wanted poster from double jeopardy, and i must say she is 5'7",maybe a'm wrong ,try and see.
Regus said on 24/Sep/06
She looks wayy bony, yes. I remember when she ate. Sorry. She's maybe 5-5 too.
Glenn said on 24/Jul/06
Correct.I tower over her and never understood these reports of 5-7.
Anonymous said on 23/Jul/06
She is barely taller than David Spade when she is in High Heels. Ashley Judd is 5'4" tops.
rut said on 28/May/06
This seems reasonable, a tad downgraded, if it's true or not...
Glenn said on 7/May/06
5-5 tops.I was bending the eqauvilent to the Lohan pic.
J. said on 7/May/06
I agree with Glenn. She looks pretty petite much of the time. 5'7" is hilarious. But whatever. She's still hot! ;p
[Editor Rob: well, just having second look at her and her racing husband...if I give him just 5ft 9 then it is possible yes 5ft 5-5.5, but he's also been listed 5ft 10...
maybe she is the female equivalent of Cool J...only looks 5ft 4 when glenn's about ;-)]
Glenn said on 7/May/06
I met her many times.2004,the last time.5-5 sounds to high.
Glenn said on 6/May/06
Shes 5-4.I lost my photo.
[Editor Rob: Glenn, have you met her more than once? What about any of your friends, they seen her looking that short. Honestly, I'm struggling to see 5ft 4, I could see maybe 5ft 5 with bad posture for sure, but as low as that...man, I wish you still had a photo, it would have been interesting! Maybe you caught her on bad day and yourself on a good day?]
cicilolo said on 5/May/06
No shes 5'7!
Haylie said on 22/Apr/06
I don't think she is as low as 5'1 or 5'2, I think she is more like 5'4-5'5 (as Glenn etimates). I'm finding it hard to believe she is 5'7.
cop said on 21/Apr/06
@rob:look at her in one movie(don´t know the title) with Natalie Portman. Ashley Judd is slightly taller than Natalie, so 5´7 is bullshit.I believe she´is 5´1-5´2.
cop said on 16/Apr/06
@ds:don´t know, where you got your information from, but believe me: average height in Germany is not 164cm.Maybe it was in the 60´s but today it is 170cm- women of course! I am from Germany and working in fashion industries. I know a lot of so called "tall americans".German definition of "tall" is different!
hulk said on 13/Apr/06
look, as i sad before i think that ashley is 5ft.7 or perhapse 6.5 , but in all pictures with salma hayek ashley doesn't look taller than 5ft.6in.
hulk said on 28/Mar/06
say,do you think that ashley is 5-4 or something else?
Glenn said on 6/Mar/06
In Sneakers.lost The Pic.
Glenn said on 5/Mar/06
No way.5-4, 5-5.
[Editor Rob: seriously? did you catch her when she wasn't in heels or something?]
ds said on 25/Feb/06
But isn't India listed as 171 here, so that would make Ashley that height too. And is the average in Europe really 170? The tallest country (excluding Africa and South America) is the Netherlands, where the average for women is 169 cm. And Croatia where the average for women is 167 or 168cm, and where I come from Bosnia-Herzegovina where the average is I think 167 nt quite sure. The rest of the countries are like America if not shorter. I know in Germany the average for girls is 164cm...and Spain is even smaller...
[Editor Rob: yes, I hadn't changed india yet, but that was too high...if she's a little shorter than judd then 169cm is probable...]
hulk said on 20/Feb/06
in double jeopardy there is a wanted poster where she looks 5ft.7.5in.
one more thing , on that wanted poster she had her shoes on. So i would say that she's perhaps 5'6.5".
[Editor Rob: I can't remember this scene, but next time I see I'll keep an eye for it...]
~Nate~ said on 16/Feb/06
No I saw her on the MTV Special where her and India Arie listed at 5'7 as well traveled around Africa and Ashley Judd Towered everyone in sneakers. She was about the same height as India if not taller, shes 5'7 looks right.
cop said on 16/Feb/06
i have read in a german magazine she´s only 155cm which is 5´1.i think the problem is that in europe 5´7 is average and in the states you are called "tall" when you are above 165cm. There is nothing but image.Sad that most people believe this sh...
