I saw her in person when she was wearing flat sandals and not dressed up. She looked at least 5'9". Maybe not quite 5'10", but definitely at least 5'9".
Arch Stanton says on 25/May/15
Still smoking hot even with a "buzzcut" in Mad Max!!
Just says on 20/May/15
Very close in height with Nicole, so 5'10 for Charlize is not unreasonble.
tilda says on 19/May/15
not 177cm. i guess she is five nine.

at least 3cm shoter than kidman.

Tall women are attractive and sexy but they are "EXPENSIVE":(
Men Cant afford being around one if they re not loaded.
Jason says on 5/May/15
I agree with J.Lee Rob charlize needs an upgrade to 5ft 10in (178cm)
J.Lee says on 23/Apr/15
Rob, you said Charlize Theron is 5 ft 10.5 out of bed. Does that mean she should get listed at 5 ft 10 since, 5 ft 9.75 is her lowest height? 5 ft 10 would be her average height.
J.Lee says on 23/Apr/15
Rob, how tall is Charlize in these? Click Here
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1-1.25 range. I think her listing is ok, almost but not 5ft 10.]
Bishop says on 26/Mar/15
Rob, I have no doubt that she is legit as listed. But next to Seth Macfarlane in "A Million Ways to Die in the West", it's kind of hard to see her over 5'9". Do you think Seth could be a fraction over 5'10"? He looks a strong 5'10 guy to me.
[Editor Rob: not impossible at 10.25]
Arch Stanton says on 25/Feb/15
She's one of the very few women who can still look super hot with very short hair!
Bishop says on 19/Feb/15
Most accurate a listing could get. Beautiful actress.
Mike says on 10/Jan/15
Not under 5ft 9.5.
MasterX says on 9/Jan/15
Rob is 5' 9.75'' almost close to 5'10.
So charlize has good chances of being 5' 10 in morning right??
[Editor Rob: she could be 5ft 10.5 out of bed.]

I'm 5'11" and an Asian friend of mine is 5'9.5", and I am always taller than her, to where my eyes are slightly above her eyebrows. Charlize Theron was only about a tiny, tiny bit taller than her, so 5'9.75" to 5'10" makes the most sense for Theron. However, I couldn't tell you if she was in heels or not, as it was a long dress.

M.P. was your asian friend using heels? Are you male or female (I ask this just in case you were using heels as well).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Nov/14
Just under 5ft10.
Judd says on 18/Oct/14
5'9.75" at her lowest, with a good chance to be 5'10"...
she really seems tall to me, with a normal pair of heels she easily reach people like keanu reeves (6'1) and will smith (6'1-1.5") and barefeet she had almost 0,75-1" on johnny deep, so nothing below rob's listing...
vfpswiftie says on 16/Oct/14
Rob is there a visible difference between 5ft9.5 and 5ft9.75? I'm just curious
[Editor Rob: if you had 2 people barefoot together with flat hair you could probably tell if there was a 1/4 inch difference if you looked hard, but generally I think many would find it hard to tell people just slightly apart.]
Silent_D says on 15/Oct/14
She always looks 177cm.
Arch Stanton says on 6/Oct/14
Monster's become like one of my favourite post 2000 films, as Roger Ebert says "one of the greatest performances in the history of cinema". Looked 5'10 in it.
Arch Stanton says on 27/Sep/14
Rob can you add Monster and The Cider House Rules? She won the Oscar for Monster!! She's amazing!!
Jones says on 24/Sep/14
@ super Mario
Yes it is, 5'10 is very tall for a woman.

No,it isn't...
user says on 10/Aug/14
5'10 isn't much at all? It is for a woman.
Lewis says on 31/Jul/14
I thought she was a giant, like easily over 6 feet, but 5-10 isn't much at all.
J.Lee says on 21/May/14
Is charlize 6 ft 2 next to chris?
Smithd97 says on 13/May/14
I relish, cause I discovered just what I used to be taking a look for. You've ended my 4 day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye kbdddfbdeeeagdcb
Arch Stanton says on 9/May/14
She had an inch on Rudd in Cider House, more 5'10 than 5'9".
Arch Stanton says on 9/May/14
Agreed Sam, she is a goddess, a really cool person too, and a good actress. She looked great even back in The Cider House Rules. What I wouldn't give to spend a night at a drive in cinema with her hehe!! I prefer her with shorter hair, makes her look more elegant and it shows off her amazing face.
Ricardo says on 8/May/14
Rob, why sometimes you list to someone as 5 ft 9.5 and other ones as 5 ft 9.75? what is the difference? To be 5 ft 9.75, the person must wake up at least 5'10?
J.Lee says on 15/Apr/14
Rob, how tall is Charlize next to Chris? He is 6 ft 3 and 6 ft 4 in shoes, she only looks a little shorter
[Editor Rob: she can look about 2, sometimes at other event with not quite as big heels about 3]
Sam says on 24/Mar/14
She is one of the most gorgeous actresses I can think of today and, unlike many model turned actress, she is actually a pretty solid actor. She gives definitely more of a 5'10" than a 5'9" impression usually.
Arch Stanton says on 28/Feb/14
I'm not looking at Leo in that pic. God she's so gorgeous, one of the few women who look great with hair that short.
Banshee says on 27/Feb/14
Yet another proof DiCaprio is nothing beyond 180 cm - Charlize wearing flat 'balerina' shoes.

Gaby says on 6/Feb/14
5ft 9.75 is right she is tall and beautifull. In the picture with Nicole Kidman we can see tha Nicole is 5 ft 10 and no moore. She needs a downgrade.
Brad says on 4/Feb/14
She'll be in flats with her new boyfriend Sean Penn. Rockin' in 4"ers by Sean would irk him.
shy says on 23/Jan/14
Hey Rob on the weight celebrity page its written that she was 135lbs(for 5ft10)(from a quote) do you think that its also valid for this photo?Click Here ;or otherwise can you tell me a range:)thanks. And Happy new year... late
[Editor Rob: one username please! ;)

she is close to 135 in a lot of films, maybe even at times several pounds above or below that mark.
Realist says on 11/Jan/14
Same height as Woody Harrelson 176-177 range not over 5'10
light says on 31/Dec/13
Happy new year! Hey rob a 135lbs range its 60-61-62kg isn't it?
[Editor Rob: yeah 61 plus or minus 1kg range]
little sue says on 29/Dec/13
I'd say so Eric, a bloke of 5ft 6 would look noticibly short but a woman the same height can look quite tall especially if she has short body long leg proportions
Emily says on 25/Nov/13
This listing still surprises me, because to me she looks a strong 5ft 10.
Pedro says on 2/Nov/13
Here is a recent picture of Nicole Kidman next to Charlize Theron: Click Here .
Despite having less footwear and no standing straight, Charlize doesn't look much shorter than Nicole. Maybe a downgrade for Nicole or an upgrade for Charlize?
Chris says on 8/Oct/13
What do you mean with 1/4-1/3? 0,25 and 0,33? So the deviation with my example would be 9,25-9,5 inches with the 5'11 man and 9,15-9,4 inches with the 5'11 woman?
[Editor Rob: a 5ft 8 girl and 5ft 8'd find typically 9.25 inch is common and just under 9 inch common for women, if that makes sense.

for the equivalent height women compared to 5ft 8 man, like a 5ft 3 women, the difference might be a bit more, nearer 0.5 inch]
Emily says on 27/Sep/13
What's the average deviation in head length with a women and man the same height? Like for example a 5'11 man and woman. Would it be like 0,25 inches? The man 9,25-9,5 inches and the woman 9-9,25 inches?
I just feel like it's generally lower than i estimated.
[Editor Rob: a 1/4-1/3 possibly]
Emily says on 20/Sep/13
How long is her head Rob? 9-9,25 inches? That isn't big though for her height, is it?
[Editor Rob: for her height it doesn't look oversized]
Len says on 19/Sep/13
@Paul - Michael Fassbender is definitely not six feet tall. More like 5'10".
Taklaci says on 15/Sep/13
I saw her while runnin. So she were wearin flat shoe im 6 feet and she's certainly same that my tall
Pedro says on 12/Sep/13
@COOLGUY I think that being tall is actually an attractive feature for beautiful women like Charlize Theron and Taylor Swift. It only becomes negative for women who are not so pretty.
That's probably why a lot of those tall and beatiful celebrities don't mind to tower over so many men when they are wearing heels. As long as it is not their own partner.
COOLGUY says on 11/Sep/13
Can someone explain to me why tall women still wear 3+ inch heels? I saw Taylor Swift wearing that at awards show she was taller than most men there!
Leland says on 6/Jul/13
I believe her claimed 5'9 1/2". That seems right.

She looks even taller than that sometimes, but remember that she really digs wearing big high heels.
J.Lee says on 2/Jul/13
5 ft 10 even or 5 ft 10 1/4?
J.Lee says on 1/Jul/13
Rob does this sound accurate? 5 ft 10 in the morning and 5 ft 9.5 at night?
[Editor Rob: she could clear 5ft 10 out of bed]
Len says on 29/Jun/13
One of the few stars who doesn't seem to lie about their height. Gotta luv it when an actor/actress is actually secure enough to tell it like it is.

She claims 5'9.5", and by gum, she sure looks it.

She also wears some pretty high heels, so she routinely ls standing at or over six feet tall in those.
J.Lee says on 18/May/13
ON David Letterman, she said 5 ft 9 and a half. Any chance she is 5 foot 9 and a half at night, but 5 ft 9 3/4 afternoon? Do you usually give them their lowest height or their height in between?
[Editor Rob: she is somewhere in 5ft 9.5-10 range, I think this listing is ok.]
J.Lee says on 18/Jan/13
rob how do you tell the difference between 5'10 and 5 9 3/4
[Editor Rob: measure them]
Arch Stanton says on 14/Jan/13
Still hot even with shorter hair than me...
Bakura says on 8/Jan/13

Maybe because he's currently listed at 5'11 and doesn't look a cm under it next to 5'7 James McAvoy and 6'3 Nicholas Hoult in X-Men: First Class, or any of his other movies for that matter? Or will you just flat-out ignore these facts/conveniently invent a lifts story to handwave it away like you do with all evidence that proves you wrong?
Conti says on 17/Dec/12
I would say 5'8 barefoot and in heels 5'9.Chris Hemsworth is 6'3 barefoot,so they're 7 inches difference.
Joey says on 16/Dec/12
solid 5'9
MaskDeMasque says on 17/Nov/12
5'9.5 and looks it.
Arch Stanton says on 11/Nov/12
5'8 tops, Hemsworth is 6'1" didn't you know? LOL. She claimed 5'9.5" on Letterman but has also said 5'10".
Silent d says on 23/Sep/12
Danny 5 foot 2 is 157cm. Charlize is 177cm and she is my fave actress. Very talented and beautiful! No arguments here. Nicole kidman is 179cm.
Danny. says on 8/Sep/12
Oh my god she is so very tall. But she is pretty and nice looking and stunning. She is even a lot more taller than me. Even i am a tiny bit smaller to her. I am only 5'2 -167 or 168 cms i think. But she is my favorite 100th favorite actress and i like her. I went to see her in the movie snow white and the huntsman. And she was very good in it. And she was also good at playing the queen reveanna i thought she was very good when i had seen it at the cinema last year.
Just says on 25/Jul/12
She's as tall as Nicole Kidman. In this picture you can see she really has a bad posture and that her head is down.
Look at her shoulders and Nicole's shoulders, same height. She is at least 5'10 and needs an upgrade. Click Here
Chameleon says on 13/Jun/12
And what the heck makes u think Fassbender is over 5'10?
Paul says on 12/Jun/12
She looked the same height standing next to six foot Michael Fassbender in Prometheus.
Shaun says on 6/Jun/12
She claimed "Five nine and a half" on Letterman.
