Carmen Electra's Height
5ft 2.5in (159 cm)
American model and actress known for roles in films such as Meet the Spartans and I Want Candy. In her earlier words she said "So I'm standing on the bed and we're eye-to-eye, because he's [Dennis Rodman] 6ft 8in and I'm 5ft 4in"
but on being measured a few years later, she reveals the truth "I always thought I was 5'4" and I just found out I'm 5'2 1/2"! I was so bummed!"
. Nowadays she generally rounds up to 5ft 3 when giving her height, although in 2015 (in PrideSource.com) she talked about misconceptions people have about her: "People always think I'm 6-feet tall. I've literally been at the airport and listened to a conversation between two people. One person saying, "It's her." The other person saying, "No, that's not her. She's too short."... I'm 5-foot-2-and-a-half. That's what I am and I love it. And I get to wear extra high heels if I want to be taller!"

Why is Dave Navarro not on this website? He is a famous person notorious for wearing thick footwear, i estimate hime to be 5ft 7in but all websites have him at 5ft 9in

She rounds up at times. See her latest quote again saying 5ft 2.5. When you're 5ft 2.5 you sometimes say that, other times you'll round up.

In person I can tell you she is super short (5'1.5" ??) and really tiny, i.e. skinny frame. This girl shocks in person how small overall.

[Editor Rob: they look 4.5-4.75 range so 5ft 7-7.5]

Carmen is a perfect classic beauty. She has beautiful proportions and a gorgeous face. She sets a very HIGH beauty standard that even the 6' tall glamazons cannot reach. Also equally gorgeous & classic beauties are Salma Hayek @ 5'2' and Scarlett Johansson @ 5'3". Height does not matter with women. It is all about proportion, and how you carry yourself. There are hundreds of beautiful & desirable women under 5'5' today, but the media is pushing the super skinny & super tall women on us and we "normal height" beautiful women must fight back with blogs and dressing correctly to show off our wonderful figures. And ladies, don't forget to get your hair right. Remember the amazing Veronica Lake @ 4'11' who set Hollywood on fire with her peek-a-boo hairstyle. Own your height and the "rock on" like Fergie @ 5'3" and smoken hot!

This can't be true. She's probably 5'4 and this last measure was not accurate. She appeared barefeet and side by side with Donna D'Errico in Baywatch, and Donna is 5'5 (the difference between them was no way larger than 1 inch). Besides, in the same video she appears side by side and barefeet again with Kelly Packard (who is 5'4) and they both were exactly the same height (pay attention when they talk closer to their wardrobes).

I am so SHOCKED. I was thinking that she was the 6'0 tall hottie!!! I also was thinking that I am shorter than her. I am 14 and 5'4.5", so, Carmen you are a shortie...Hahahah

dana said on 26/Nov/10
she cant be 1,59 she looks shorter, dont know why, her legs are not that short, but her torso and arms seem prety short
dan said on 16/Nov/10
Good things come in small packages is bogus??what a dumb thing to say.the truth is good things come in all different sizes.

One of the possible reasons she HONESTLY believed herself to be 5'4" is that so many other actors in Hollywood give themselves an extra 2 inches of height!
jess said on 17/Jun/07
a good friend of mine escorted her up the stage at a casino event a couple years ago. when i asked him about her the one thing he said was that she was very very small. he is a short guy and always notices height and he said he would put her at 5foot.

She ran from the magician's helper....Pam got it. I would have believed 5' 8", that's how good the camera made her taller, much like Farrah & Ms. Simpson.
Crissy said on 29/Apr/07
Brad, me too
I thought she was taller
but i'm no expert so
Brad said on 23/Apr/07
She's a Vegas magician's helper as her next job. It is unbelievable what she does for $ these days. It is like she is on order by a court or something. Wasn't she an actress once?
X said on 19/Apr/07
How would she not know she was an inch and a half shorter???
Perhaps she had listed herself as taller earlier in her career as a dancer. It's been reported that Paula Abdul had to work harder to prove herself early on because her height prevented her from having the 'classic' dancer's body.
Brad said on 16/Apr/07
I never realized she was that short. She must have worn giant heels with Rodman.
J-Dog said on 17/Apr/06
Yeah Jonathon Ross reminds me of about 10 guys here.
Haylie said on 17/Apr/06
He said Henson was taller than he expected him to be and something about him being a strapping boy (what? lol) I wouldn't actually be surprised if Ross has visited this site!
[Editor Rob: yeah, henson is around 6ft. Lol, Ross is a clued up guy, it wouldn't surprise me if he's bashed in 'JONATHAN ROSS HEIGHT' into google...he might have ended up here ;-)
hey, message to Ross: "ask more heights of your guests!"]
TJ said on 17/Apr/06
Starting to find Ross's height fixation a little annoying actually, particularly when he does it with the guys. If there's a guy on there who isn't particularly tall, Ross rarely fails to mention it. I think he gets an ego boost out of being taller.
[Editor Rob: yeah, he'd fit in well on this site! You've seen the pamela anderson interview I take it? That was taking it a bit far...]
JJ said on 16/Apr/06
whoa! i always thought carmen electra was 5'4 cuz that's wat it said EVERYWHERE! now i feel stupid for thinking that.
[Editor Rob: to be fair, she said 5ft 4 for a few years then realised she wasn't that height]
Haylie said on 16/Apr/06
lol I've noticed that too he very often makes a comment about his guest's height, he did it with Sharon Osbourne and that Gavin dude Charlotte Church is going out with!
[Editor Rob: what did he say about Henson, anyone remember? I've not seen it, maybe something to do with hair making him bigger?]
Haylie said on 15/Apr/06
I watched her on the Jonathon Ross show last night and he asked her how tall she is as he was surprised at her petite stature and she said "I'm 5'2.5"
[Editor Rob: Jonathan Ross, I think he has a closet interest in height...it wouldn't surprise me if he has donned a lift on occasion...]

I have stood between Carmen and Pamela Anderson.Carmen is about 5'3 and Pammy is quite a bit taller at 5'7.Short and petite is very sexy though.
Elise said on 26/Mar/06
I just was watching VH1's most wanted celeb bodies and Carmen was on commenting on other people on the list and said she was jealous of women with long legs because "I'm only 5'3" just thought you should know...
Tuan said on 21/Jan/06
Glenn, so how tall is Dave Navarro?
Glenn said on 19/Jan/06
she is 5-2.
Anonymous said on 31/Dec/05
Wow i had no idea Carmen was that short! I think she's smokin' hot no matter what her height is,and she is living proof that short women can be just as hot as any 6'0 supermodel.
Alicia said on 29/Oct/05
I was watching a programme about her and she was describing herself to a guy saying something like "how about a brunette about 5"3" I think she could be rounding up so well done Rob I think bang on the truth! Anonymous you gotta be deluded or 5"1 not 5"10 to think anywhere near 6ft cos she says 5"3 herself you crazy cat!!!!!
[Editor Rob: she is rounding up ;) easier to say '5ft 3' than 2 and a half...]
Anonymous said on 14/Sep/05
Nah she is definately 6ft if not 6ft 2. Cos I met her and I am 5-ft-10 and she was a good few inches taller than me and she was in flats and i was in heels.
CelebHeights Editor said on 17/Aug/05
She's rounding up again, naturally "But, it was fun and I got to wear platforms which is always good in my book, because I'm only 5' 3."
Kats said on 8/Jul/05
In the past, I thought she got away with 5'4. Glad to hear her be truthful about being 5'2 1/2.
