Comment on the Height of Gwyneth Paltrow

With Tracee Ellis Ross 5'7" I think again Gwyneth is 5'7-8". Click Here
Az said on 8/Dec/15
Lots of new pics with her and rob Lowe getting a star on walk of fame. He's 5'10" and she's about 5'11" in heels. 5'8" is a good listing for her. I've seen her a lot and think 5'7.5"....not at all a really true 5'9". She's just so beautiful I think and I met rob Lowe too! He's totally 5'10". Wasn't as tall as my bro who is 5'11 but was taller than me in ballet flats and I'm 5'7.5". He's AMAZING and VERY KIND. ox

How could cameron diaz be 5'8 if paltrow stay 5'9? Everyone know there is at least 1.5inch difference
Allie said on 11/Oct/15
What 5'7? Are you people crazy? Did you not see the pic on RDJ's page? Her heels don't look gigantic and he's wearing his big shoes and yet she's still taller. She's also taller than Cameron. I'd say she's 5'8-5'9 in order to achieve that.
Allen said on 3/Sep/15
You haven't seen her barefeet in person so you can't be certain. Some have seen her and they say she's around 5'7.
hijopotamus said on 2/Sep/15
Nearly 5 10, have you stood beside her or beside Brad when they are not wearing heels or tricky shoes with lifys?
Nearly 5 10 said on 25/Aug/15
And no. Her and Brad Pitt are NOT the same height...
Nearly 5 10 said on 25/Aug/15
I have just verified that Michael Stipe is actually 5' 9" - which Rob has him listed at. Stipe and Paltrow are the same height - when she's not in her high heels or wedges. Gwyneth Paltrow IS 5' 9", guys!
Allen said on 22/Jul/15
Paltrow is nothing more than 5'7-5'8 and Pitt doesn't look any taller than her in that picture! makes me laugh some say he is an inch and a half taller! He only has a masculine body which makes him look taller! They are both nothing more than 5'8!
Dingus said on 9/May/15
5'08.75" I think
Mat 5'10 said on 2/Apr/15
damn... those legs... i want to... do nasty things...
Cristina said on 1/Feb/15
Completely agree she is 175cm, she is tall and looks like a model. Definitely taller then Robert Downey jr. Maybe in the movies he may seem taller than her, but we all know they have tricks (apple boxes, steps and stuff) to make a man (and a small woman) look taller on screen...
Logan Hedlund said on 22/Jan/15
I'd say miss Paltrow is solid 5ft 8.5in ~174cm. Long leg bones. I would agree with mr. Rob, but I'm still unsure.

Rob, how do you think Bruce Paltrow was?
[Editor Rob: not looked at him much.]
Vibram said on 5/Nov/14
Hair over 5ft8. Not a full 5ft9.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Oct/14
60kg I see mentioned for Paltrow (132 pounds) looks about right. Didn't Rob ever have her on the weight site?
Arch Stanton said on 4/Oct/14
150 pounds?? She's really skinny. Doubt it. Lindsey Vonn would be a good 40 pounds heavier I reckon. Somewhere between 130 and 140 I'd guess more likely.
mike said on 1/Oct/14
Legit 5ft 9 175-176 cm.

"tiny says on 3/Apr/14
Would put her at 5'9" & about 150 lbs. A little shorter and thinner than my other favorite Uma Thurman who is 6'0" & 165 lbs"

Nope. I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs, and Ms. Paltrow is WAY more than 10 lbs lighter than me. I last had a figure like hers when I was about 17 and an inch shorter, and I weighed about 125 lbs.

Tape Measure said on 3/Apr/14
She's been seen with Stipe on numerous occasions, sometimes with heels. But when she looked the same height as Stipe, she was in sneakers.

Yes, in the famous 'Pitt and Paltrow barefoot picture' he looks 1 inch taller absolute MAX. But it isn't a great photo to compare height because the camera angle's not ideal.

also tape measure both brad and Gwyneth were in bare feet and brad look about half inche taller

tape measure was she in heels because she just didn't look 5ft9 to me she looks between 5ft7 and 5ft8 i mean katie holmes looks taller imo
Tape Measure said on 27/Mar/14
Pitt is 1.5 inches taller than Paltrow. I have him at 5' 10.5". Paltrow is also the same height as Michael Stipe.

She's 5' 9"

Hi Rob, (Big fan teehee) I spotted this image from DM but the wall obscures her footwear but you could assume with the outfit she chose flats?

Could this put Chris Martin at a weak 6'0 maybe even 5'11.75 ?

LOL you're really bad at judging height. For a start the height difference is not under 4 inches, and Gwyneth is on higher ground and its the edge of a road. Reality is that Chris is a strong 6'1.
Natasha said on 4/Feb/14
Everyone she's 5'9" get over it.

What height of a man would a 5'9" woman be equivalent to?
Hannah said on 27/Jan/14
5'9" is spot on
Just said on 27/Jan/14
She's 5'9. She's taller than 5'8 Cameron Diaz and shorter than 5'10 Liv Tyler.
Paul177 said on 23/Dec/13
174 cm is the lowest I'd estimate for her. I think a weak 5' 9" is more accurate.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/13
About 5ft9 is fair. She keeps getting better with age.
az said on 13/Dec/13
i have stood next to her more than once in nyc and in austin texas at a coldplay show. she is around 5'7 but not quite 5'8. i am about 57.5 sometimes measured as 5'7.75". she's really really pretty and skinny.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 30/Aug/13
5'9" is right on the money, she's a bit shorter than 5'10" Liv Tyler.
Craig 177 said on 3/Jul/13
175 cm is spot on Rob.

DeeDee said on 1/Jun/13
Chris, you're mis-reading the stats! the "175" is centimeters............she's 5'9" and nothing mentioned about weight. She's not wearing "platforms", either......she's wearing high heels, which many fashionable women wear.
Chris said on 22/May/13
I don´t think she´s 175, Robert Downey is almost taller than her in heels and he is 173 . Guy Pearce is taller than her in heels hand he is 178. Robert is wearing lifts, but still. I would say that Gwyneth is 171-173.
J.Lee said on 20/Apr/13
Rob, these platforms are monsters. Click Here Would you estimate 6 foot 2 in those monsters?
[Editor Rob: yeah they are beasts]
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 28/Mar/13
Rob, do you agree with little sue's estimate of 3.5 inches of extra height for those heels?
[Editor Rob: I'd have guessed if I seen them in person around 3.5-3.75 range, they'd probably be called a 4.5-5inch style in the shop.]
little sue said on 27/Mar/13
I would say the heels being about 5 inches and the platform an inch they probably give about 3.5 inches of actual height

Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 21/Jan/13
Pitt is an inch or so taller.
The only way hes 180cm is if Paltrow is 177cm+ barefoot. The max paltrow can be is 176cm which means brad is max 179cm range.
I actually think 178-178.5cm at night is where Pitt would fall if measured. I wouldnt be suprised between 177.5-179cm but cant really see him higher than a strong 179cm.
Trey said on 26/Dec/12
In The Avengers, 172/173 cm Downey Jr was a good 4-5 cm taller than her, in huge track shoes, probably adding 5-6 cm. 173-174 cm seems right for Paltrow, not quite 5'9.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/12
Hope she continues to look more and more like her mother, Blythe Danner is a good looking woman.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/12
She's one of the best examples of a legit 5'9" woman in my opinion. But she actually proportionally looks the exact same height as Abbey Crouch in this pic who I believe is nearer 5'8".
refresh said on 24/Oct/12
did you look at the pic with brad pitt,they naked and barefoot??? brad is NOT taller not even for 1 cm!what is wrong with you? she IS 175 cm,long legs,long neck and brad IS ALSO 175 range barefoot,am i only one who see that?

Never heard of people getting smaller after getting babies ?

Her peak was certainly 5ft 9. Don't know if that is true any longer after two babies.
Marty said on 13/Jun/07
In the movie Pall Bearer with David Schwimmer there's a scene where she's standing face to face with Schwimmer while in his room and they both wear sneakers, and there's a 3" height diffrence between the two. If Schwimmer is really 6'1 as stated everywhere then she has to be at least 5'9" if not a bit more.
Kevin said on 12/May/07
I just returned from the Keane concert in LA and backstage collecting our car, there was Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow. I am 5'9" so with shoes approx 5' 10". Gwyneth was wearing large heeled shoes and towered 2 or so inches over me. I put the heels at 3 inches so she is a good 5' 9" in bare feet. Both were very nice and friendly. Class act. Chris introduced Gwyneth as his wife. Nice couple. Cris is a good 6' 1".
timber said on 6/May/07
In this pic with Paltrow and Evan Rachel Wood, 5ft 6, Paltrow appears max an inch taller than Wood. Gwyneth appears to have a slight slope advantage and is wearing modest heels. Wood appears to be wearing hightop sneakers:Click Here
I think Gwyneth is 5ft 7 in max. At 5ft 9, she should be 5ft 10 in shoes and tower over Wood. She doesn't.
Carol said on 30/Apr/07
I saw a photo of Gwen dressed up with her actress-mother, Blythe Danner. Blythe may have shrunk or never been her height listed as 5'7". Mom looked like 5'4" . I couldn't see their feet but Gwennie towered over her. Mom had her arm resting on Gwen's hipbone instead of her waist because of the extreme height difference. Maybe Gwen had on heels and mom didn't. I think Gwen is ~5'9" comparing other photos with this one.
talker said on 22/Apr/07
Drew,Pitt is probably 5'10" but i wouldnt think 5'9"impossible.Look at the shoes he's wearing in that photo.I believe these are 3"lifts or so they seem.Gwyneth is in 1"flipflops,there's the 2" difference and also she's bending forward..
Drew said on 22/Apr/07
Paltrow is not 5'7" okay... She is definitely not under 5'9". If Paltrow is 5'7" then Brad Pitt is 5'9" at best (which is not possible):

I still have to say that if cameron is 5'8 as listed here, she should be 5'8 too. Look at her next to Cameron Diaz. Not taller than half an inch next to her. And they both are know for using very high heels.

talker said on 14/Apr/07
Gwyneth is a tall girl,5'9" sounds right, check this page with J.Garner who says she is 5'8" and probably is(listed so here).Gwyneth looks 3"taller,probably wore higher heels there.But taller anyway.

ria, that was me on 5/Dec/06, and i was referring to Helena Christiansen being listed at 177cm on her website, not Gwyneth. Gwyneth is clearly shorter than Helena.

hello anonymous2???? 5'7 is 170 cm NOT 177 so she is clearly more that 5'7. i go with 5'9!
anonymous2 said on 5/Dec/06
actually, Christiansen's own website has her at 177 cm, so still only 5'7 for Paltrow.

she is like 5'9 so 6 to 6'0.5 in heels so look like a 5'11.5 guy when is in heels
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/06
Just food for thouht. Would someone 5'9" really wear these 4 to 5 inch heels doing every day shopping etc. I am 5'8" and I wear flats to formal occasions because heels make me so tall. I really think it's safe to say that by pics and her taste for huge heels, she is not over 5'7.
Chris said on 3/Oct/06
She's 5'8-5'9 without heels. Just like Mandy Moore.
anonymous2 said on 22/Sep/06
I think they may both be 5'7, actually. There is some debate as to whether Bening is truly 5'8. Gwyneth is wearing killer heels in that pic, giving her perhaps 4 inches over Bening, who may be wearing more modest heels, giving her only 2 inches.
Coffeecakes said on 22/Sep/06
There are pics of her being presented with an award by Annette Benning who is listed here as 5'8. Now in these pics, Gwyneth looks taller by at least an inch and a half.

Those are bad pics, Chris. At the premier pics shown with Gyllenhaal she was in 4" Christian Louboutin heels. In that picture it just looks like flats for some reason. And in the other pics you can't see any feel or posture. In all other pics here she is 5'8" at the absolute Max.
Brad said on 17/Sep/06
She wears boots with big heels a lot. Hard to judge her.

Michael Stipe is 5'8" and she's in huge heels. Again, Paltrow is a hot 5'7" at best. (Most people say Stipe is actually 5'7" anyway).

I don't know, to be honest none of those pics convince me of her being as short as 5'7. In all of those pics, you can't see the shoes clearly and she appears to not be standing straight. Gwyneth has terrible posture and NEVER stands straight. She is at least IMO 5'8 1/2.

I think that Gwyneth's height is one that has been exaggerated for a while, and after looking at a lot of these pictures, I would put her at 5'6 and 1/2, especially after comparing her to Chris Martin, who is 6'1 and 1/2.

What I am wondering is why people keep posting pics where the people are not standing right next to each other? Most of the pics, I see one person practically behind Gwyneth and vice versa.
I really believe that she is minimum 5'9. I have never seen anything that proves otherwise.

No one over 5'* can wear the 5 inch Balanciagas that she wore to the Golden Globes and look only 2 inches taller than 5'8" Anthony Hopkins. It is totally off that she is over 5'8'.
raj said on 3/Apr/06
can anyone post the pic of her with Pitt both barefoot on a beach? they look same paltrow should be around 6 feet!

she does and hour and a half of ashtanga yoga everyday 6 days a week so she probably increased her height an inch or so due to better posture and the good stretch.

Perhaps at some angle she could be taller in her 4 inch heels but that still leaves her below 5'8".

Nope. She's 3 to four inches shorter than Leno. Indisputable. She's 5'7.5". Tops.

I closely watched Famke Janssen and John Hannah in 'Circus'.Famke is almost 1,5 inches taller than Hannah, who in Sliding Doors is the same height as Paltrow. That makes Paltrow 5,9.5 or 5.10 (in case Janssen is 6.0).

there is here too much people say, that all celebrities must be shorter than real. i think, it is not real. Forexample, Gwyneth. i stood next to her in Los Angeles, and she was really 6'2 with her heels. She is 5'10 real life, it is true!

Next to 5'2" Sheryl Crow, 5'9" just doesn't hold up. Looks like it's really time for a 5'7'-8" downgrade. And Madonna is in for her 5'2" downgrade. Good finds with sheryl crow, actually. She is photographed with a lot of people and we all know she's 5'2" or under.
Anonymous said on 26/Feb/06
I think the anthony hopkins pics are all too telling. It just seems way too off to have her at 5'9" when it is clear she is a bit shorter than him. Like, very clear and hard to argue. Even if we pretend he's 5'9", she is still just at 5'8". I think there is no argument agaist downgrading to 5'8" at least.

At the end of the movie Sliding doors they are in the elevator, where you can see their shoes are the same. They are the same height then.

at what point are Hannah and Paltrow wearing the dame heels? Weird. Actualy, in the restaurant scene when she looks his height or taller, she is wearing 3 inch stacked heels. He is also only about 5'10". So, she is still about 5'7" or 8".
Anonymous said on 25/Feb/06
This is all slightly off. Gwyneth Paltrow is 5'7" in real life. I take Yoga at the Equinox gym where she takes yoga time to time. She is not at all 5'9". Actually, she an d Tyra Banks have both been in and Tyra is clearly 5'10" and Gwyn is clearly 5'7".
kampioen said on 20/Feb/06
Closely watched Sliding doors. Gwyneth is (with 1,5 inch heels, taller than john Hannah. When the have the same heels (in the elevator) they are the same height. So truely she must be 176-177 cm.
Lara said on 3/Feb/06
By the way... you guys never heard of a short man wearing 2-3 inch inserts in his shoes? I assure you it's pretty common, and I'd say it's even more common in the acting world. It's far more likely that Hopkins is wearing inserts.
Lara said on 3/Feb/06
You've only got to watch her in 'Emma' with Jeremy Northam. Plenty of very clear shots in it, including feet. She looks, at the absolute maximum, only 2.5 inches shorter than Northam, which would put her at the very least at 5'10". She's clearly a tall chick.
Anonymous said on 1/Feb/06
Wow. The Golden Globes were very very telling. Take her shoes off and she is an inch plus shorter than Hopkins. You kind of have to downgrade this one. 5'7.75"

Watched Golden Globes last night and she is only an inch and a half taller than Hopkins when she has 4 inch heels on. Set him at 5'8" in dress shoes, she is 5'10.5 in heels and 5'7" in real life. Take a look at the photos and go ahead and downgrade. it's really nexessary, in relation to Brad Pitt, Jude Law, Angelina Jolie and all the other stars she is seen next to.

[Editor Rob: Hopkins is a funny one...Mr R agreed he was a legit 5ft 8 range, 174 might not be that far from the truth...I mean beside Glenn he looks legit 174 range, although as I mentioned on his page his CV does claim he was 5ft 10 in his 'youth'.]

By the way, GP is not 1.5" taller than Roberts. Same. And Roberts is only 5'6" maximium. This is too talll for GP. Though her beauty is equal to 8 feet tall if that's what it takes. I stood by her at a Coldplay show too. She is 5'7".

If Kirsten Dunst is 5' 5.5", then Julia Roberts is 5' 6.5" and GP is 5' 8".

Pretty sure Miss Gwyneth is at a maximum 5'8.5" - sometimes she looks shorter than this due to slouchy posture.

No way, Julia Roberts has been outed by too many sources that she is really 5'6".

I think Julia is closer to 5'7" or 5'8", making GP 5'8" or 5'9". I also think Jay is closer to 6'.

She is 5'7.5". Everyone kows that, silly. Almost 5'10" is absurd. Check her out on Gett with Elle McPherson in flip flops. Gwyn matches her 5'11" or 6' with Paltrow-esque 4" heels on.

I met her in 2000 and we had a conversation about an artist we both enjoy. She was sweet and articulate. I know that she was 5'7.5 or 5'8" because we were both in trainers and I am 5'8". But she was way skinny and lanky. No one here goes off meetings/sightings but I know what I know. The whole thing was really cool. I also saw her a couple years later (just a sighting) at Robert De Niro's restaurant in Tribeca. She was wearing heels that time, so was I, and still, about my hight (my sister said shorter but...). I had a cigarette outside at the same time she did too and listened to her talk to her friend and laugh a lot. She is rediculously perfect. But not extremely tall as some believe.

Gwyneth looks at least 174cm, i have compared her to so many differen't actors in movies and pics. There is no way that she is as small as 170/171. But she does wear alot of really high heels often. To anyone who did meet her what was she like? i am a big fan!

No way 5'7! It's really ridiculous how people round down. When you get measured, you usually stand up as straight as you can, more than you would normally. If she was measured 5'10, she could easily slouch and take off 2 cm, 176. I went to the Paris Hilton post, who's listed as 5'8" in most places, and people are saying she's 5'3". It's possible to round an inch or 2, but 5!? Gwyneth is listed as 5'1" in lots of places, 176-177 is pretty accurate, she doesn't seem like the type that would lie.

Seriously. Why hold onto 176 cm?
JUSTMATT said on 10/Nov/05
here we all agree Paltrow is no more than 5.8 Rob and also who met this girls says she is 5.8 so why you still have her at 176 cm? You have at least to put down her at 174 (in my opinion off course)....

My weird story is that when I met Gwyneth Paltrow in 2000, she was randomly with Michael Bolton. I have no idea how tall he is but she was two inches shorter. She wasn't wearing heels. I am 5'8" and she seemed exactly my height if not a hair shorter. Oh, yes, I did meet Michael Bolton. He was very nice but I don't remember how tall he was, wasn't paying attn.

She said on The View that she "one inch taller than my Mom". So, how tall is Blythe Danner in real life?

[Editor Rob: maybe nowadays in the 5ft 7ish range, unsure [how much] shrunk, although there was a quote from actress Marylin Burns, - "So then I was Susan and Blythe's stand-in! Blythe [danner] is about 6 feet, Susan [sarandon] is about 5'7" and I'm 5'2"]

In that picture with Kim, Even if Kim were 5'7", Gwyn would still only be 5'11" in that picture and that is with her standard 3-4 inch heels. Take 3 inches off of 5'11" and you still have a 5'8" Gwyneth. She is not as tall as 5'9" (or 5'8" really). I saw her in Shakespear in Love and Perfect Murder this week and she comes out to about 5'7" in those films. She is so beautiful in Shakespeare in Love.

Let say even that they are both the same height so both 178 cm but you have to consider that Paltrow has 4-5 cm heels!! So I'm sorry but for sure Paltrow isn't the 177 cm you give her in this page! She can be max 175 cm but no more!

The Leno comparison is another good one. And she is wearing the same 3-4 inchers in the photo with Diane as she is in the photo with Spielberg. That's why she looks about the same height as Diane Sawyer, I suppose.

I don't know. It's pretty convincing that 5'7.5" is as high as she goes. Look at her in 4" heels beside Leno. Leno is 5'10". If Gwyn were 5'9" she would tower over a 5'10" dude in 4" heels. 5'7" hits the nail on the head.

By the sounds of things, most of the previous posters are convinced she's shorter than her current height that's listed, and there's quite a bit of evidence to suggest this. I think it's time to downgrade her, Rob!

Thanks, Anonymous, for the Turlington and Burns picture. She does look all of 5'7 there. I'm sticking with 5'7 for Gwenyth too for now. In the Cypress Hill photo, not only are the shoes not visible, but I think that pose (with both arms over the shoulders of the people next to her)makes a person look taller too. I've seen photos of her with film costars doing the same pose. I don't think she's trying to look taller, but just does because of the pose. I've posted links to photos of Gwenyth and Brad under the discussion of Brad Pitt's height and that comparison is also convincing to me that she is about 5'7.
What said on 26/Oct/05
The thing is, I am 5'8" and I met Paltrow. She was not over 5'8", for sure. Someone 5'8" would not wear the 4" heels that she wears and still be shorter than anna malova. And I that picture with Sen Dog is not good for analyzing things because you don't know her shoes, or anyone's posture...She isn't over 5'8" though.
Gawker Stalker said on 26/Oct/05
Yeah, 5'7.75" is perfect, Rob. With the lankiest frame ever.

Sen Dog is not 5'7". He's definitely a strong 5'8er. I'm a tad over 172cm, I met him, he was slightly taller than me, but shorter than my 5'9" brother. I have no proof, you can say i must be shorter, but i wouldn't bother debating that unless you've met him as well. Despite his lean, she also has a slight hunch which is why i put her at around 5'8 1/2".
Anonymous said on 24/Oct/05
Sen Dog is 5'7" and in that picture, he is leaning into Gwyneth, losing some height on camera. They are both probably 5'7", same height. It is actually great evidence to the fact that she is under 5'8". At most she is just touching 5'8".

Anonymous said on 24/Oct/05
Seeing how much taller Anna Malova is (and Anna is 5'10"), I don't think Paltrow could really be too close t0 5'9". She is most generously 5'8" and most reasonably 5.7.5".
A-Bomb said on 22/Oct/05
I just saw a picture on the net of Gwyneth Paltrow and Sen Dog and Bobo from Cypress Hill on DJ Muggs website (it's on its own window so I have no address you can check out the website if you guys like, under the cypress hill section in the gallery). Now Gwyneth seems an inch taller than both. I've met Sen Dog and Bobo, they were not shorter than me (my minimum height is 172.1cm), but they were both visibly shorter than my brother who was also there 5'9". So I'd say they are between 172cm and 173.5cm. Now Gywneth could have been wearing high heels, but if she's 5'7" wearing high heels she'd be towring over both which she does not. So I'd say that Gywneth is minimum 5'8 1/2" and max 5'9 1/2". So in my mind at least i'm satisfied she is not as low as 5'7" and possibly not 5'8".

Those pictures help, especially considering the discussion about Kate Moss' hieght. 5'7 for Gwyneth seems correct to me. Does that mean that Christy Turlington is also 5'7?
berry said on 3/Oct/05
Yes, I could be wrong about Ellen's height - I just found a number on the web, so not reliable. 5'7 seems to be the consensus, which makes perfect sense given all the comparisons so far. But what about the following photos in which she is walking with Christy Turlington, who is supposed to be 5'9. Don't they look the same height?
What said on 27/Sep/05
I shook hands with Gwyneth three years ago. We were both in trainers. I am 5'8" (and probably .25 inches shorter than 5'8" to be specific). Gwyn was my height if not a touch smaller. I didn't know that there was any argument about her being over 5'7". She just isn't.

And I saw Ellen Degeneres' stand up in 2002. She is about 5'6".
mytwocents said on 16/Sep/05
I meant to add that Blythe is probably really only 5'5, not 5'7 as listed. So that puts Gwyneth at 5'7.

At the beginning of the first apartment scene of, "A Perfect Murder," it has Michael Douglas and Gwyneth Paltrow raising their glasses to make a toast. There are many tricky scenes of Gwyneth looking taller, then looking shorter, due to the camera being close, and then the camera being far away. I dropped all these theories when I saw the scene where Michael Douglas is in Gwyneth's room, picking out Gwyneth's outfit for the art show they'll be attending. In this particular scene, there is a full clear view shot; Gwyneth is barefooted and Michael Douglas seems to be wearing 1.5" heels. Gwyneth is clearly shorter and doesn't appear to be monsterous as many people see her to be. On my view, (and this is MY opinion), Gwyneth looks to be a solid 5'7".

By the way, in order for Paltrow to be that height, a few things ALL have to be true:
-she's making herself (already tall for a woman) appear even TALLER by exaggerating her height, yet she developes postures to make herself look SHORTER beside certain male celebrities, yet she wears high heels to make herself look TALLER; she's either very calculating or very confused
-she somehow gets away with exaggerating her height by 2-3 inches; people are just not interested in commenting on her height (is this a general trend in the population? what is it about Paltrow that makes her height less interesting, not just to certain people, but to everyone who's met her?)
-she convinces directors to make her appear tall on screen (APPRECIABLY taller than Angelina Jolie, Mike Myers, ...; a 5-7/8 actress needs director's tricks to do this)
-she either lied in her biography or had early growth spurt (in reference to being teased at school)

This proposal requires so many details to be met. It is so specific. The alternative proposal is: Paltrow is simply tall, 5-9/10 women are not uncommon. You might even propose a list of details that makes Paltrow at 5-5 a possibility, but that requires MANY things to be true (e.g.: she has special lifts in her socks; she develops a posture that makes her tall but look short; she pays the directors to make her taller on screen; ...), and what are the chances of all these details being true?
Anonymous said on 1/Aug/05
1. I'm not saying that directors can't make her appear shorter. I'm saying it's pointless to make a 5-7 actress look even taller on-screen. I don't think directors want to make every 5-9/10 actress a few inches shorter (depends on the male costar's height), but it's as pointless to make a 5-7 actress a few inches taller. If you don't think she looks tall on-screen, here are a few examples:
-nearly as tall as Jude Law in "Skycaptain"
-taller than all her main costars (female and male) in "A view from the top"
-as tall as Matt Damon and Jude Law in "Talented Mr. Ripley"
-nearly as tall as the leading man in "shakespeare in love"

2. Exaggerating by 2 inches is obvious. Your suggestion is: people are not interested in commenting on her height, even if they see she's exaggerating 2-3 inches. Compare that to Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz, both listed at 5-9. This site lists them at 5-8/8.5. Let's be safe and push them down to 5-7. Even so, they are only exaggerating by 2 inches, yet their heights are questioned fiercely.
"If I'd spotted her at 5'7" I wouldn't have known to say that she should've been taller."
That's because you didn't know what her listed height was, so of course you wouldn't be surprised even if she was 5-5. Even if you aren't interested in Paltrow's height (albeit being so active in her thread), out of the thousands (or more?) people who've met her, wouldn't some suspect anything or be interested in her height? Even if I'm not interested in her height, but I happen to meet her and she appears 5-7, then I'd probably go to the Pitt thread and say something like "I've met Paltrow and she's 5-7, that makes Pitt short!"

3. I think Mischa Barton truly hates being tall. People are saying she's rounding DOWN her height -- she's getting questioned the other way around. Heck, once she even claims that she's 5-7.
Anonymous said on 30/Jul/05
My take on Gwyneth is that she does not look that tall on screen. A truly tall actress would have to be barefoot to do all her scenes, as to not tower over her fellow actors. I believe the press feeds off of other sources and keeps building a persons height up. To me, Gwyneth looks 5'7".
Anonymous said on 30/Jul/05
By the way, a person who sees Paltrow and estimates 5-9/10 wouldn't go around telling others "I met her and she is 5-9/10!"; they'll get a response like "yea, we know; what's your point?"
On the other hand, if a person sees her and estimates 5-7, then he'll probably tell others, "hey people, Paltrow is actually much shorter than what you think."
In a nutshell, if people expects her to be a certain height and sees her at that height, then it's no big deal; but if she appears shorter than people expected, then they will start questioning.
Anonymous said on 29/Jul/05
1. Here we see an actress who always appears tall on screen. Your conclusion: she always wears lifts on screen; it can't be her height. There are plenty of 5-7/5-8 actresses out there, but they don't look as tall; your explanation: coincidentally all these directors share an interest in making Paltrow look taller on screen.

2. This Paltrow thread is basically empty without our comments. Where are all the doubters? Paltrow is listed as 5-9.5/5-10. If she is 5-7.5, then it should be pretty obvious. Even male actors find it hard to exaggerate their heights by 2 inches without suspicion, yet actors have the constant benefit of hidden lifts. Even if Paltrow was 5-8.5 (the very high end of your range), somebody who sees her might underestimate her height (especially with her bad postures, as you say) by 1 inch (some might overestimate, some might underestimate, as we agreed). Paltrow must've been sited literally thousands of times; surely out of these people an appreciable number must be bored enough to comment on her height. This is the site designed just for that, yet nobody has posted anything like "I've met her, and she doesn't look quite that tall." She is quite famous after all.

3. a) Heidi Klum is a supermodel, and her 5-9 is short for a supermodel. There are plenty of 6-footer supermodels or even regular models. On the other hand, Mischa Barton admits that she hates being tall -- how "tall"? according to this site, 5-8.5. Both Barton and Paltrow are actresses, but Klum is a supermodel; it says something about their interests.
b) this is valid, especially the early growth thing

[Editor Rob: actually Mischa I put 5ft 9 a while back...]

Like I've said, nothing can prove that a height is true. But I've provided three convincing evidence:
1. Unless directors deliberately give her lifts in movies to make her almost as tall as the leading man, she must be tall.
2. Few ever doubt her height, even though she can't hide lifts inside high heels. Others who exaggerate their height have been fiercely questioned.
3. She has been teased in school about her height. Two implications:
a) It seems UNLIKELY (but not impossible) for her to exaggerate her height.
b) You've got to be pretty tall if fellow students are making fun of your height.

And you have provided corresponding rebuttals. We'll let editor Rob decide from here. I'm done here for now.

Something else that's interesting:
Scroll down and in one of the posts it says "I've read biographical stuff on these women [including Paltrow] and they all suffered terrible teasing and abuse at school growing up, and hated being tall at the time but overcame it, and difficult as it was, ignored the jerks who were cruel."
If she suffered humiliation from her height, why would she exaggerate her height? How tall do you have to be to be made fun of? Paltrow must be really altruistic, doing all this just to make her costars and former boyfriends look taller. But I doubt she has an interest in doing that. A celebrity cares mostly about his/her image, not those of her costars and former bfs.
Anonymous said on 19/Jul/05
here are some things to ponder at:
1) do directors give Paltrow lifts in movies to make her almost as tall as the leading man? usually they try to make the man taller, I'd say. do you seriously believe that the 30 or so directors she has worked with all coincidentally want to make Paltrow -- and only Paltrow -- look taller on-screen? I know you've said before that directors could make her shorter if they really wanted to, and concluded that it must be because the directors want her to look tall -- you are right, but they'd only shrink her height if she peaked above the leading man. If she was only slightly shorter than the leading man, the directors may forget about and tolerate it. But are you saying these directors actually put LIFTS on Paltrow? (it's one thing to tolerate an awkward actor-actress height difference; it's another to deliberately make the actress look awkwardly tall compared to the actor)

2) VERY few people ever question Paltrow's height; in public, she usually wears exposed high-heels with no lifts (as you have agreed on), so anyone meeting her should see something suspicious if she exaggerates her height by 2 inches. If she claims herself to be near 5-10, and yet people see that she is actually only 5-10 wearing heels, then they will start to question her height. However, her height is hardly ever questioned. But take Julia Roberts, however, someone who (like you've said) really isn't the 5-9 she claims to be. She receives far more doubts about her height. There are people who met her say she is shorter than they expected, or that she looks tiny. Go to her thread and have a look. So the question still remains: how did Paltrow manage to avoid suspicion? (most male actors do so by wearing lifts to public events, but Paltrow cannot) Why hasn't anyone met Paltrow and say she is shorter than expected?
mytwocents said on 18/Jul/05
I have to go with Sticks. I believe she adds two inches to her height, so I think she is probably 5ft 7.75. I think it's hard to tell with her because of her slender frame which gives her the illusion of greater height, just as it does with models.
Anonymous said on 17/Jul/05
"I estimated the posture penalty and I think it was pretty clear that I wasn't 'insisting' that you had to agree that he was losing more height, because I said 'let's assume they've got perfect posture', and said more than once that I didn't want to argue postures. But you wanted to argue about posture and here we are. You said correctly that there's no way to determine who's losing more height. Then I think you thought you could make headway by making an argument of posture. Why would you bother to make an elaborate argument on the topic when I clearly didn't think any argument would go anywhere?"
if I wanted to make headway I would've said, "from looking at their postures, I estimate that Paltrow loses more height," just like you did
I know you wish that wasn't sarcasm, but I chose the number 0.5 inch for a reason: because you somehow estimated posture penalty to 0.5 inch accuracy.
If you didn't want to argue about posture, then why did you tell me your estimated penalty for posture? I haven't even said anything about Paltrow losing more height. If you really want to forget about posture, we could do that now: assume both Affleck and Paltrow loses the same amount of height due to their postures. Again, I have no idea how you got that 0.5 inch estimate just by looking at their postures.

"As I've said, nothing in the picture disconfirms anything I've said about Paltrow. Or would you like to show otherwise?"
Using your ratio 0.932 and a very modest 6-2 for Affleck, Paltrow is still 5-8. Using a more realistic 6-2.5 for Affleck, Paltrow is 5-8.5. Using my 0.94 ratio (which in my opinion is more accurate as it was measured from head to heel, point to point, not from head to some point between the feet), Paltrow is 5-9. Your range is 5-6.5 to 5-8.5. All these three estimates lie on the upper end of your range (else completely above your range).

"As I said, I don't want to argue posture with you. It's not just bewildering that you think that you can model Affleck's pose and Paltrow's in that picture with such accuracy that you can determine that their posture penalties with less than a half inch error, it's funny. I'm sorry, man. Do you realize all of the errors involved in that? You're just too far away from the land of the reasonable to have this discussion with. You claim to be too humble to make definitive statements about people's heights and then you think you can determine the height Affleck's losing with his legs bent in those pants with that hunch by striking his pose and measuring yourself? That's confusion beyond words. Some of it was worthwhile, so happy trails, anonymous. I wish you well. Let's go like this: you insult me and we'll be done with it."
You seem oblivious to the sarcasm in my statement. Yes, I "concluded" that each person loses 0.5 inch due to my "evidence," but that's basically what you did: you insisted that Affleck loses at least 0.5 inch due to his posture, and how did you come up with that number? -- by looking at the picture and using your eye judgement, now how much error is involved in that, just as much error as modeling their postures? Perhaps now you can see your reasoning from an outside perspective. As I remember I was the one to say "You can't possibly tell who's losing more height in this case."
Anonymous said on 11/Jul/05
you might realize that there is absolutely no way to calculate the distance of either actor from the camera without knowing the distance from the lens of the camera to the film. let's call this distance D
all I can tell from the picture is that Affleck is about 13.9D away from the camera (assuming he's 6-3 in shoes) for Paltrow's distance from the camera, there is no way to calculate that unless you know Paltrow's height (which defeats the purpose, since that's what we are trying to find out) and the lens-to-film distance

about your posture penalty, how did you come up with that? this is how I did it: I measured my own height in perfect posture, Affleck's posture (bent legs, slightly hunched back), and Paltrow's posture (one foot half a step forward). Result: both lose about 0.5 inch compared to perfect posture. There is no difference due to posture.
Anonymous said on 8/Jul/05
I see you have changed your mind about Paltrow looking like 5-7.

"Good picture. Your analysis of it neglects the slope of the ground. If you look at the ground, you’ll see Affleck’s feet are lower in the picture. That’s because even though they’re about an equal distance from the camera (which is why he’s in profile looking at her and you thought we could compare heights), they’re on a grade."
There is probably a tilt, but Paltrow must also be standing farther from the camera. If you rotate the picture until the apparent tilt is gone, Affleck looks like he's learning forward, and the dog will be tilted sideways.
Also, the dog's feet are the same level as Paltrow's (if she puts that lifted foot down)? If there is such a big tilt as you claim, then the dog must be standing behind Paltrow (in order for their feet to be the same level), and she's pullin it along.
My ratio is 0.94, assuming they both have the same sized hair (you have to measure from heel to head, there are just too many points "between their feet"); that makes her 5-8.5 (if Affleck is 6-2)
About posture: remember that she is in the middle of walking and taking a step. You can't possibly tell who's losing more height in this case.

I've noticed alot of the discussion about Gwyneth's height been mostly happening over at Jude Law's name. Lots of people there thinks Gwyneth is probably closer to 5'9 than 5'10 due to that photo of her and Law looking about teh same height, and Paltrow's in 3 inch heels. I always thought Paltrow was 5'9" and that photo practically confirms my belief.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.
