I'd say no taller than 5'7. Click Here
Affleck towers her by one full head. That's what a 6'3.5 guy looks next to a 5'7 person.
Dmeyer said on 14/Dec/14
5'7.25 is closer
stan said on 8/Oct/14
id say the height listed is about right. i dont think shes stunning, but cute/pretty would be more fitting. well, just my opinion.
Nial said on 5/Mar/14
she might be a somewhere between 5'6 and 5'7.
Balrog said on 2/Mar/14
She was almost same height that Benedict Cumbertach in the Oscars, she probably was wearing 6in heels that gives a little more of 5in, right Rob?
Sam said on 24/Feb/14
She's one of the most naturally pretty woman recently IMO at 42 (not that that's old!), even if she lies a half about her height according to here. Affleck lucked out there.

Was by her at Disneyland. She was wearing about the same shoes I was (sneakers) and was either my height or just a tad taller. I'm 5-7.25, so 5-7.5 for her would sound about right.

she looks same height next to prince william as kate middleton+in a picture with kate they look around the same height (kate is standing closer to the photographer)
Dmeyer said on 13/Dec/12
5'7.5 strong 171cm make sens looks too small near Affleck to be 173cm
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
I think it was the angle that made olivia taller. 5 foot 7.5.
Silent d said on 10/Oct/12
Not 5 foot 8. She's shorter than olivia wilde i butter but she is taller than jessica biel. 5 foot 7.5.
Silent d said on 29/Jan/12
She's hot adam.I would say 5 foot 7 is perfect.

i agree with Alex
cant really see her being over 5'8 with the blonde girl in 13 going over 30
Alex said on 24/Sep/07
Looking at her in 13 Going on 30 today she looks a solid 5'8.
marlon said on 20/Sep/07
I met her last year and she looked much taller than me and I thought i was an average height. A full 5ft 9-10 for her.

She looked taller than him to me.

she was same height with high heels at least 3 inch as jaime foxx at vma he's 5'9"
DC Diva said on 9/Jul/07
If she's 5'8", I'm 7 feet tall. I saw her at an event in DC two years ago. She was wearing 4" platform heels and still wasn't as tall as me and I'm 5'9"
timber said on 19/Jun/07
small pic, but looks like Garner is a few inches shorter than 5'9.75 Charlize Theron:Click Here
CaliCali said on 18/Jun/07
There is a pic of her today on People's website. She is in flipflops next to 5'10 Matt Damon and looks about 3 inched shorter than him. I'm saying 5'7.

[Editor Rob: angle is in damon's favor at least 1 inch in that pic, but the ground looks a bit rough. Too hard to say much with such pics.]
xD said on 26/May/07
she was standing directly in front of ben affleck in daredevil and she didn't look that much shorter than him, but she did have high heels so at least 5'8 - 5'8.5 :P
Judith said on 9/May/07
It seems that she is at least between 5'8" to 5'9" tall. I'm 5'8.5" and met her once in close proximity. I was wearing 2" heel and she's wearing flats, she seemed to be an inch shorter than I am. But minimum, at least 5'8"
brooke said on 27/Apr/07
I'm 5'8.75" and I've stood directly next to Jennifer on the set of Alias on several occasions in both flat shoes and heals and I can guarantee she is at the minimum 5'8" and possibly 5'9." I would say closer to 5'9," since we are essentially the same height.
Paul said on 8/Apr/07
This seems outrageous. Maybe it's just from my perspective. But in the dancing scene of "13 going on 30" she says that she was wearing 5 inch heels! And she was only about an inch, maybe two, taller than 5'8" Ruffalo.
joz said on 7/Apr/07
women lie about height and weight so standing with mark ruffalo at 5'9 she looked at least 3 inch shorter than her
Bel said on 3/Mar/07
yeah she looks 5'8, more 5'9 but i bet shes downsizing her height

[Editor Rob: she's shorter than gwyneth paltrow for certain, taller than melissa george on alias...I don't see her far from her 5ft 8 claim]
Alex said on 23/Jan/07
Glenn, have it posted if you can. What was your guess on her height?
Glenn said on 18/Jan/07
I have a photo of her and I from that set.
Alex said on 17/Jan/07
13 Going on 30 was on today. She looks to be a solid 5'8 girl for sure.
carla said on 16/Jan/07
However...she did mention in one interview that she was Jennifer Garner. Plus I've met Jen and she DOES seem 5"9. In 13 going on 30 she seemed the same height as Mark Ruffalo, however she was normally wearing heels so it would be hard to check.
Alex said on 16/Nov/06
I think she could be this height. She looks 5'8ish.
anonymous2 said on 13/Nov/06
very true; however, Mr. R also said he was with a friend, 5-8, who appeared at least 2 inches taller than Ruffalo, and who said that Ruffalo was "short". Mr. R remarked that Ruffalo wasn't slouching at the time (see 26/May/05)
anonymous2 said on 12/Nov/06
She looked the same height as Mark Ruffalo in 13 going on 30, and Mr. R thought Ruffalo was 5'6.

[Padraig: With a slouch he probably looked that short to a near 6 foot man.]
Glenn said on 5/Nov/06
She towers over me in shes 5-8.
Anonymous said on 5/Nov/06
Don't think she's 5'8, in dare devil she looks shorter.
romeo said on 28/Sep/06
I have met her,I think she is tall,especially in heels.She is 6ft tall with heels ..
anonymous2 said on 10/Sep/06
I think she would look closer in height to 185cm Bradley Cooper if she was really 173cm (180,183cm with heels)To me she doesn't look 173cm, more 168/169cm.
Sara said on 25/Apr/06
Why do all the great actors have to be so tall. I am only 5ft1 I must be a midget compared to them!
Anonymous said on 12/Apr/06
5'8" in Hollywood means 5'6". I swear. And Gwyneth Paltrow is only 5'7" max.
azraea said on 17/Mar/06
i think she really is 5'8(though i really really wish that shes 5'7 lol)
175cm16andgrowing said on 7/Jan/06
5'7'' or 5'8'', she looks it... but she also can look 5'9'' sometimes... In Alias she looks a legit 5'8'', 5'11'' in heels.
Krista said on 7/Jan/06
She's 5' 10"-5' 11" in heels, which are about 3", so she's either 5' 7" or 5' 8".
Anonymous said on 21/Dec/05
The 5-9 listing is what her character's height is shown as on Alias.

Since there was no widely-known height listed for Garner (she wasn't well known before the show started), that's why you see 5-9 listed in places.

I think 5-8 is probably right, maybe 5-7 but no shorter.

I agree with Brett. She really needs to be downgraded to 168 cm. There is no way she is 5'8.
Brett said on 2/Nov/05
she looks about 5'6" 5'6.5" but not 5'8" its very easy to tell just by looking at her that she isnt that tall. 5'8" in heels Id believe
Anonymous said on 21/Oct/05
in 13 going on 30 she is the same height as Mark Ruffalo even a tad shorter when she is barefoot. And at the MTV movie awards 2003 if you see pictures of her next to Charlize Theron (5'10") Charlize is about 4 inches taller than her and she doesnt seem to eb wearing very large heels.

What the hell that pic is of JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT

[Editor Rob: did you read the post? the first post showed love hewitt and jennifer garner saying garner wasn't that big. I then showed love hewitt beside the 5ft 8 bradford at the same event which may support garner looking shorter than 5ft 8]
anon said on 25/Jun/05
She is definitely shorter than 5'8". In the paparazzi pics I've seen of her recently with Ben Affleck (6'2) (both wearing trainers) there is about an 7-8" difference between them, which would put her at 5'6-5'7.
Gigy said on 19/Jun/05
I thought she was 5'9/175 cm, (1.5 cm shorter than me), but 5'8 is more likely I guess!
Anonymous said on 12/Jun/05
i think she is 5/7

Jennifer appears to be this tall when standing next to 6'1" Victor Garber or 5'9" Ron Rifkin
