How tall is Christina Hendricks

Christina Hendricks Height

5ft 7in (170 cm)

American actress best known for her role as Joan Holloway in tv series Mad Men. In film she can be seen in Drive and I Don't Know How She Does It, in addition to memorable appearences on tv shows like Firefly. This photo (by Daniel) is from a Starfury Convention in March 2007. She had a good 2 inch more footwear than me this day.
I was a model for years, and even when I was 19 years old and 115 pounds [and 5'8"] my agency said, 'Your ankles are a little large. If you could lose 10 pounds, that would be really great,'...I've always had boobs and hips, even when I was 115 pounds. And here I am, much heavier than when I was modelling.

Geofrey Arend is 6ft2-6ft3.
Sam said on 30/Apr/14
There's no way Arend is as low as 6'1" unless Zach Braff is like 5'10".

I agree with this height, above average for a woman. Her husband Geoffrey Arend must be pretty tall! Well over 6 foot anyway.


Her husband is Geoffrey Arend. He's listed all over the place at 6'3" but in reality he's about 6'1".

In Drive,she looked like 5.25-5.5in shorter than Gosling who is probably 6'0.25-6'0.5.5'7 is perfect.Oh,and obviously very attractive.You're really lucky to have such job,Rob.
little sue said on 10/Feb/14
Surely attractiveness is in the face Arch so sounds a bit of a daft comment to say women in the 5ft 6 to 7 range are the most attractive anyway its a bit tall for me, 5ft 4/5 more my ideal height for women and 5ft 10/11 for men
Arch Stanton said on 7/Feb/14
@Little Sue. Yeah 5 ft 7 for a woman is the lower end of tall I think, sort of like 6 ft for a guy. But a legit 5 ft 7 woman with heels will generally look a tall woman in public especially if long legged and skinny proportionally, it's certainly noticeably above average anyway. Women can be attractive at all shapes and sizes but I've always thought 5'6-7 is a great height for a woman and some of the most attractive women lie in that sort of range, and it seems a lot of the men women frequently cite as the most attractive tend to be 5'11-6' (Brad Pitt, David Beckham, Leo Di Caprio, Michael Fassbender, Jude Law, Justin Timberlake, Viggo Mortensen etc) which is the male equivalent for 5'6-7 for a woman.
lelman said on 6/Feb/14
Insanely jealous of that photo there Rob, lol. I would peg her at about 169cm, just shy 5'7".
[Editor Rob: I wish I had got another photo with her the next day now...don't think she's done another con in the UK since that one.]
Emily said on 10/Dec/13
That hairstyle really suits Jenny. She looks gorgeous there
[Editor Rob: I think she had pigtails tied back there...]
yeye said on 19/Oct/13
Arend has to be taller than 6'3.

Gonna call 6'5-6, he is a lot taller, even when she's in heels.
Larc 74in said on 28/Aug/13
Damn, she's hot as hell, and tall too.
5'7 seems right.
little sue said on 11/Aug/13
Average for a woman!!!! not anywhere near Great Britain
Sam said on 8/Aug/13
Arend is around 6'3"

@Peyman: lol. I feel the same man... I came her to read about her height not her looks.
[Editor Rob: her height I'm pretty certain is definitely not 5ft 8, there you go, back on topic :)]
Sam said on 5/Jan/13
good job rob, she's beautiful!!
Peyman said on 28/Dec/12
@ Arch Stanton
so that means I'm not a red blooded male, doesn't it ?!
WOW , she's a super hot
Rob I wish I were you . nice job
curvy ,a beautiful redhead, super amazing breasts .
Wows again
is it better now ??!!
I just meant it's better to more speak about her height as this page is officially made for that.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Dec/12
peyman says on 20/Jan/12
90% of the posts were absolutely irrelevant to her height , LOL, why you show all kind of comments Rob? (anyway,in my opinion 5ft 7in seems to be right for her)

Um, if any red blooded male was stood next to her, height would not exactly be your preoccupation LOL. Surprised Rob remembered to note her height...
[Editor Rob: of course height is always on my mind...but it was at the back of the queue in this case, other things were more far more pressing...and not just against my inter t-shirt...]

Godred said on 15/Dec/11
@Rob - But they might cause growth in other areas.
[Editor Rob: indeed!]
Godred said on 14/Dec/11
Rob - You said you rarely ask for a hug, would be interesting to know which other celebs you asked,and which agreed and didn`t.
[Editor Rob: as I said it is a rare thing, I did ask christina and an actress called emilie ullerup, and someone else called sharon taylor who was in smallville.

but I'm there trying to get photos for the site, sometimes hugs can reduce your height.]
Cindy said on 13/Nov/11
Ive never thought that redheads were pretty, but she really is! 5'7" seems about right. My mom and I got quite close to her once and she was just slightly taller than me (Im 5'6") but no taller than my 5'7" mom.
Tman said on 7/Nov/11
did she really think she would fool anyone LOL anyway she just looks like one of those chicks that have unlikable personalities and yes she is nothing special.
Shaun said on 16/Oct/11
Saw your post on the General height page, you just really dislike light skinned women. That's fair enough. Christina is not my usual type either but it would be very unreasonable for me to claim she was anything but attractive.
Shaun said on 16/Oct/11

She claims they are natural. They fooled me anyway. You want fake looking boobs check out Jodie Marsh LOL.
Shaun said on 16/Oct/11
Cranberries says

Also, nothing enviable about Hendricks. Big fake boobs, and a backside that's wide as a mountain and flat as a board. No one likes flat butts. Her face is attractive, but nothing special. She's not even a real redhead.

You're either a jealous woman or a gay guy LOL... She's amazing.
Leslie said on 3/Oct/11
She's 5,8
she said so in an interview for some random magazine. She said she's 5,8 and don't mind wearing kick ass heels. So there's your answer. She's perfect in every way, tall and curvy :)

wow natural beauty.

she does look stunning

Your favourite photo Rob? - You look like you`re having fun.
[Editor Rob: getting to hold a woman like that, I'm still surprised I managed to ask for a hug and didn't get a 'no' :)]

Cranberries - "They're so obviously real that anyone who's ever seen or touched a breast would know."
Hansen said on 15/Aug/11
she had a big face here. 5ft7 sounds right. ;)
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 13/Aug/11
@Mary: What about Charlie Rose? He's almost 6'4", a foot taller than his father and his mother. I also know a 6'11" man who married a 5'7" woman; his daughter is 5'6". Of course, diet still plays a substantial but varying role; I'm sure I'd be taller if I didn't eat like a bird. I'm sure Shaq and Yao Ming would be much shorter if they did.

Also, nothing enviable about Hendricks. Big fake boobs, and a backside that's wide as a mountain and flat as a board. No one likes flat butts. Her face is attractive, but nothing special. She's not even a real redhead.
Mary said on 12/Jul/11
What a foolish discussion is this: tall women - short women. Hey! Short men and women have short kids. Tall men and women have tall kids. If a tall man has a child with a short woman (or vice versa) the result is unpredictable. I am 176cm and have shoe size 38.5 which is small for my height. Feet must be proportional. Not small, not big, but proportional.
Christina is ok, a beautiful woman that does not make other women hate her.
P said on 30/Jun/11
i think shes 5'7" too!!she seems little bit shorter cuz she has short legs!but love her hair!!
Duncan said on 28/Jun/11
You're a very lucky man, Rob.

Getting a hug from Christina, as Gaius Baltar would say "I'm insanely jealous!"

[Editor Rob: I think I only ever asked about 5 women for a hug, but she was stunning looking and didn't refuse. I was tempted to blink and hope for a retake ;)]
Jake T. said on 16/Jun/11
Hendricks and January Jones are close in height but maybe Christina has Jones by 1 inch so 5'7 is fine.
Jake m said on 12/May/11
Good height for a woman. Great body as well.
bausse said on 30/Apr/11
@Fred Yeah, I wouldn't say 5'6 is the perfect height for ALL women that would be totally big headed and sexist but when it comes to height a woman that is 5'6 is the perfect for me. But yeah LOL I don't really notice the big faces but damn tall women have HUGE feet.
Fred said on 25/Apr/11
Melinda - You must be very tall if you think 5'7" is little for a woman. I agree with AC. I am 6" even and I prefer my women to be 5'6" and under. Liv Tyler is a great example of a manly woman to me. Too gangling. Also, tall women tend to have big feet and big faces.
Andrew1995 said on 25/Apr/11
Well, im 6'6'' and i prefer ladies around 5'6 :p
Shaun said on 8/Apr/11
5'7'" I think is ideal for women being 6'1.5" myself. If you are 5'7" yourself though then if they arein heels your gonna look short.
from a guy said on 5/Apr/11
i am a guyu.standing at 1.84,and i also like women around 1.75 or even more(and small women of course,i a talking about AC now)dont give importance to him
da_truth said on 3/Apr/11
so lucky, Rob :)
Melinda said on 31/Mar/11
AC - If you think women over 5'4" look like men, you must come from a very short country of men. Either that or you're very short yourself, especially if Christina's little ol' 5'7" is too much for you. Besides, the height of a woman doesn't dictate how masculine she looks. Liv Tyler is 5'10" and is extremely soft, delicate, and feminine looking. I could name some short female celebs who look quite mannish but that would just be rude.
Cooper said on 30/Mar/11
she's about 5'5.5 Click Here , never looks that tall
AC said on 8/Mar/11
USYD- I like my women small and feminine. I like them to look like women, not like men. For me , perfect height is not more than 165cm. Christina is pretty though, albeit a bit too tall for my liking.

ROB what is going on here, is this also very very rare for some reason :}

ROB how many retakes did u take to get that photo-shot with such a beautiful woman all over you :}

[Editor Rob: I never blinked, so it was only 1 shot. It is very very rare for me to ever ask for a hug photo, but I felt compelled to in this case for some reason :)]
Zarina said on 27/Feb/11
Shaun: I agree , men must be tall, otherwise they get the small man syndrome. For women, height is not important. The probability of the best looking women to be around 5ft5 and 5ft8 is high, as this is the height at which most women are.
Shaun said on 16/Feb/11
In the same way SAK, a lot of women would think the hottest famous men lie between 5'9" and 6'2".
I've heard a lot of women say 6' flat is a perfect for a guy, most male models are 6'-6'2" range. A lot of women would think 6'4" or 6'5" too big.
Shaun said on 16/Feb/11
Bit like Angelina Jolie facially and with much bigger chest. Not usually keen on red heads but this one I agree Rob is very hot. Yeah a lot of the hottest are not short or particularly tall and do seem to lie between 5'5" and 5'8". Personally I think 5'7" is perfect height for a woman from my own height perspective.
SAK said on 14/Feb/11
She really does ooze sex appeal, and a great height; not a giant or too small with stumpy legs, just right,

The best looking women tend to be around 5ft5-5ft8 I have noticed,
Zarina said on 11/Feb/11
I do not believe there is such a thing as ideal height. Many women are 170cm tall and this does not help them in the least. It is the proportions that count. You get perfect ladies at 155cm, at 170cm and at180cm. Height is not important at all, it is how well one is put together that counts. What nonsense, perfect height is 170cm .......

5'7 and lovely. She's just perfect. :)
Mary said on 23/Dec/10
She looks very small (though curvy) in Firefly reruns. Maybe its the footwear and hairstyle on that show, compared with how she looks on Mad Men. She is stunning.
teen said on 6/Dec/10
i'm short, but i like women my height. i hate how society expects me to cater to short women. ughhh
claudia said on 28/Nov/10
omg shes stunning..... you are so lucky to have stood next to her, and for her to hug you!!!!!!
she does look quite tall although she does have good poise which may help, personally i think she is more like 5'8 than 5'7
Bad Radio said on 10/Sep/07
i've seen her on firefly and i've met her. She looked about 5'6.But damn she is one smokin honey!

[Editor Rob: one girl I was chatting to said 'No way am I getting a photo with her...just look at her'. She was right, this girl is pretty buxom. Anyway, her in pretty decent heels I looked an inch up at her, well I think, maybe I was too busy looking at the way she was filling out her dress ;)]
