Jennifer Lopez height: 5ft 5in (165 cm)

American Singer and actress known for roles in Out of Sight, Maid in Manhattan and Monster in Law. She is quoted in the Sunday Mirror as saying: "I'm 5' 6" and I weigh 120 pounds so I'm not thin, but I think that's why women identify with me and I'm liked by men. I'm just a normal person."

Heightgirl says on 3/Nov/14
Jennifer seems smaller than 5f3.5 Amy Adams to me? Click Here She definitely doesn't seem 5f4 or taller at all imo.
Dom says on 30/Oct/14
She has never looked under 5'5"
Jen says on 24/Oct/14
Carmen, I noticed that too. Here is the pic of them. Click Here
Carmen says on 12/Sep/14
Jennifer Lopez was on Meredith Vieira's show recently and next to 5f2 Meredith she was not that much taller? I say she is around 5f3.
AndreaB says on 3/Sep/14
Lopez is about 2.5 inches shorter than Anthony. Anthony is a short man. What is he listed here as? My guess is he is 5f6.
jackson says on 27/Aug/14
anyone seen that poster of her next to 5'10 iggy azaela? they look...almost the same height?? obviously jlo is no where near 5'10....
Jen says on 25/Aug/14
Rita Ora is 5f5 and next to Jen looks a couple inches taller. Jen looks to have higher heels too. Click Here Jennifer looks to be around 5f3 imo.
art says on 24/Aug/14
she is probably 5'3 tops madonna is 5'2 -5'3 wears size 8 shoe
June says on 24/Aug/14
Wendy Williams only looks to be around 5f5.
Truth says on 13/Jul/14

At 0.50s just a little shorter than 5'11 wendy Williams. Upgrade to 5'7.
ice says on 29/Jun/14
I am a weak 5'3, and my mother and sister is not too far off from there, so usually, I'm a decent judge on that range. I know what a little shorter and taller looks like around that height. It also helps that we have similar enough shapes. She comes across as a weak 5'4" to me. I'm willing to bet a few dollars that she would measure 5'3.75" or 162 cm.
Heightgirl says on 26/Jun/14
I can see her being 5f4 but no more than that. Now there is still a possibility that she is only around 5f3. Maybe she wears shoe lift inserts sometimes? Who knows?? She always seems to have major heels on all the time too so anything is possible. She once said on an interview it takes "a long time for me to get ready". and that she has a team that styles and dresses her. I bet her experts can make her appear taller and slimmer than she really is in my opinion.
the shredder says on 23/Jun/14
I can see the 5'4.5 that she claims ?
Alex 6'0 says on 22/Jun/14
Ice, she looks no more than 5'4 there. 5'3 range? anything is possible. I've always thought she looked 5'4 anyway never her 5'6 claim and not even 5'5 BUT 5'3-5'5 range I feel is hard to tell with women.
Alex 6'0 says on 22/Jun/14
No way 5'6. 5'5 I even doubt. She comes across as women 5'4 range ive always though.
selenator says on 14/Jun/14
No way! On this picture she's with Pitbull (170 cm), notice that she's wearing heels (at least 10 cm), but still she's shorter than him: Click Here
Btw David Letterman told her that he didn't expect her to be that tiny.
kk says on 10/Jun/14
hmm...i still think shes more 5'4 mainly because she wears such humongous heels and usually appears on a wee bit on the short side next to other celebs.
jj says on 9/Jun/14
thought she was around 5'4 ~ 5'3..
Dom says on 9/Jun/14
Xyz he has maximum one inch on her, she does look 5'5"
Xyz says on 30/May/14
Can't be! Rob , Can you please have a look at that gallery? Both are on flats. I see 2-2,5" difference between them according to angle. If Marc is strong 168 like you've listed here, she needs to be 5'4" - 5'3" and half.

sandeep says on 30/May/14
her height not more & also not short . This height is comfortable for women
ice says on 23/May/14
Yeah, not only are Jennifer's heels higher, but she has platforms. I'm not seeing 5'5. AT MOST, I see 5'4".
jtm says on 22/May/14
isn't that cameron diaz standing next to lopez? lopez looks like she has higher heels so 5'5 is definitely not accurate even if diaz is 5'8.
deppfan says on 22/May/14
Click Here 5'5" sounds about right
ice says on 8/May/14
Editor Rob,

In order to have kept J-Lo at this listing for so long, you must have seen something that has convinced of this height. What is it? I'm curious, because I, and apparently a few other site visitors don't see it. I've looked up a few photos, but can never find any to make me think she's more than 5'4", so I'm really curious.
[Editor Rob: the 5ft 5 might be the top of a range for her, you could argue 5ft 4.5 is quite possible]
ice says on 6/May/14
Editor Rob, how much of a height difference do you see in those photos? I'm not sure why the second photo didn't show up, but here it is again, and some more to back it up.

How this person below me sees only two inches is beyond me. When two people's estimate are that far apart, it's pointless to even discuss it with each other.
[Editor Rob: in the previous longer shot she could look 4 inches smaller, in these ones she looks more 5ft 5]
Mon says on 3/May/14
Considering her head is as every bit as big as Rihanna's, Jennifer Lopez would look pretty disproportionate at under 5'4''. We can see she doesn't. In ice's pic, what might look like Jennifer Lopez's front shoe heel seems to be a reflection from floor or something and it's difficult to tell where the heel is, but her back foot looks to be at a quite comfortable angle as if she has moderately high heels on. We can't tell if Rihanna's shoe is equally tall. You can't see Rihanna's heel size for her long gown, and very high heels may be more likely with a long gown. Rihanna was wearing 'barely there' but very high stilettos in the street the other day so she can manage bigger heels for an event. Back to back with similar heels there is less than 3 inches in it. (Most people exaggerate height diff when they try to quantify it from photos.)
Mon says on 2/May/14
May be 5'6'', not under 5'5'' as there was not even 3 inches diff when she posed back to back with Rihanna in similar heels
ice says on 2/May/14
I this doesn't put a nail in her 5'5+ claims, then I don't know what will. One, we can all agree that Rihanna is no taller than 5'8. Even SHE says 5'8." Well, there is not way 5'8 person would look like this next to a 5'5+ plus person. In the first picture, you can't see Rihanna's shoes, but you can most certainly see J-Lo's, and I HIGHLY doubt Rihanna has on a taller she. Honestly, I'm surprised J-Lo didn't break her ankles. If Rihanna's shoe is equally tall, I see 4-4.5 inches between them.

Click Here

In the second photo, they are back to back. You can see the back of J-Lo's foot, and if you pay close attention, you can see how high Rihanna's foot is elevated. J-Lo has the advantage. The most telling thing, however, is the shoulders. Neither lady has a particularly large head, or short/long neck, so it is comparable. Rihanna's shoulder are miles above J-Lo's, much more than two inches. With that said, J-Lo is not even 5'4". She is most definitely in the 5'3 and change range. How does she not feel like a fool while claiming 2+ inches taller in beyond me.
Peyman says on 27/Mar/14
5ft 4in min
5ft 6in max
& I think she looks 5ft 8in next to 5ft 11in Ricky martin(6ft on shoes)in their new music videio
by considering her heels she will look between 5ft 5in & 5ft 6in. but I think in real she is an inch shorter than that
satchy says on 20/Jan/14
5ft 4 max
Chris says on 28/Dec/13
If she thinks that she is 5'6"....she is insane! On a good day she MAY be 5'4" but more likely 5"3".
I compared her to the "stated" height of other actors in pictures and video (which by the way are already inflated) and she is consistently at around 5"3". SO WHAT?? Good things can come in small packages....
WhiskeyBum says on 25/Nov/13
From behind on all fours she was approx 2 feet tall
Len says on 21/Nov/13
Uh, Rob... Lopez now claims elsewhere that she's 5' 4 1/2".

Which actually seems very accurate for her.
[Editor Rob: I've not seen an interview where she claimed that.]
Dom says on 12/Nov/13
She looks 5'5 , good listing
Deb says on 17/Oct/13
danny, the Madam Tussaud's wax museum figures are 100% accurate with detailed measurements. I guess the mystery is solved lol Click Here
danny says on 10/Oct/13
I don't know how accurate her wax figure is at Madame Tussaud's wax museum, but if it is (which they usually are since the measure the people before) she is about 5'3'' max and has a tiny frame. Which makes her look curvier on TV than she really is. If she was 5'5'' 140 I don't think she would date so many small guys.
tiny says on 4/Oct/13
J'Lo is easily about 140 lbs and she is only 5'3". There is no way a girl that curvy can be only 120 lbs.
Elia says on 1/Oct/13
I saw her at concert and she was tiny : then i met her and she' 5'2 158 cm that's it, so she's not 5'5 or 5'3 or 5'4 she's under 5'3 !!
Deb says on 17/Sep/13
I saw Jen's bff Leah Remini on Dancing With The Stars last night and she looked to me to be 5 inches shorter next to 5f5.75 Brooke Burke? Next to Jlo she looks only 2 inches shorter or less? Judging by that alone I think that there is no way that Jennifer is 5f6 and Leah is max 5f1 so Jlo can't be more than 5f3. All a guestimation, of course. If stars fib then it's not too hard to spot them doing so and talking about it lol.
Heightgirl says on 14/Sep/13
lol I have lots of hobbies and one includes gauging celeb heights and since this is a site for that...
Vivi says on 10/Sep/13
She looks 5'5" to me. Between 5'5" and 5'6" maybe even. I think her being curvier can make her look shorter at times
jtm says on 10/Sep/13
if she's 5'6 then mary j blige is 3 inches taller than she claims.
lol says on 8/Sep/13
She's 5'6. Some (short?) people cannot accept that, which is very odd...

@heightgirl, get a hobby.
Dmeyer says on 2/Sep/13
Cruise bits her in a dancing scenes she had to be 5'8.25 in her heels Cruise was 5'9.25-9.5 in high cut sneakers
jtm says on 28/Aug/13
how is she still listed at 5'5?
Heightgirl says on 27/Aug/13
Here's a way better video of Jlo and Taylor's performance showing a clear shot of their shoes too Click Here What does everyone think now?
Heightgirl says on 27/Aug/13
Jennifer Lopez performed with 5f9.5 Taylor Swift the other night. Taylor was wearing flats and Jlo was wearing those big heeled running shoe platforms and a big hat but was still shorter than her by at least 4 inches. I'm sticking with 5f3 barefoot height for Jlo. Click Here Go to the 1:56 mark in that video of Taylor performing with Jennifer and they are back to back and you can clearly see that even with the big hat, and high heels with a bit of a platform advantage, she is still much shorter.
Dr JJ says on 14/Aug/13
Bonkers listing! No more than 5' 3". This listing is helping Caspar Smart claim a ridiculous 5' 8"....
didley2013 says on 6/Aug/13
No way she is 5'6", 120.
She always brags about her big ass. No one 5' 6, 120 has an ass that big.
I've seen her in person, she is 5' 3".
Hailey says on 10/Jul/13
On fashion police she said she was the short stumpy one in her family and that she is jealous of her sister Lynda. If she was anywhere near 5'6 or 5'5 she wouldn't say she was short
keeks says on 1/Jul/13
Why would she lie about her height? She's famous and her height isn't important.She definitly looks like 5'6.

Heightgirl says on 7/Jun/13
Marla, MJB has her head down and is posing at the side in that picture. Anne, I saw her in concert too and she looked petite. I agree with both of you, she seems to be max 5f3. Plus it's more reasonable than her 5f6 claim lol I mean she is no where near that when photographed next to other celebs that are actually 5f6.
ANNE LANRON says on 6/Jun/13
Marla i've seen her on concert and she was gorgeous like a baby doll and she was tiny i only touched her ; but then i asked to her assistant and she said 5'4 , i mean she can't be 5'2 i would think 5'3 .
marla singer says on 5/Jun/13
Here it is: Click Here I think the lowest JLo could be is 162 cm, and the max 164 cm, so I'd go for 163...
Heightgirl says on 4/Jun/13
Marla, Please post a link to that pic or tell me the site it's on. I also saw the video of them performing and the height difference was apparent. Mary J is only 5f4.5, she confirmed it herself many times. Perhaps the other celebs are adding height to their 5f4ish frame? 5f4 for Jlo seems way too high imo. I would think no less than 5f2 and no more than 5f3?
marla singer says on 2/Jun/13
@Heightgirl: I was about to post the same thing but I saw another photo where they don't look so different (in height). Mary J might be taller than her claim because she looked nearly the same height as 5 ft 6ish Emma Stone so I think 5 ft 5 for her and 5 ft 4 for JLo
Heightgirl says on 1/Jun/13
Here is Jennifer with Mary J. Blige who admitted she was "not that tall" and confirmed her own height of 5f4.5. Even Rob has her listed on here as being that height too. Click Here So obviously Jlo is not as tall as her 5f6 claim which I found to be ridiculous to begin with, even before I saw this picture. I am even doubting 5f3 for her now? I think she may be closer to 5f2! Any thoughts people? Rob?
Heightgirl says on 30/Apr/13
Never mind Rob, I thought you meant she was 5f10 in normal shoes because you stood next to her lol I think she would gain 5 inches from those monster shoes so she would be around 5f8. Next to Ryan Seacrest in monster shoes she wasn't much taller and I think he's only 5f8 with shoes and lifts on. No I think in those monster shoes she would probably still have to look up to you Rob cause she wouldn't be as tall as 5f8. I think at most she would be max 5f7 in those huge platforms and heels.
Heightgirl says on 30/Apr/13
Rob, sounds like you can verify that she's 5f5?
Brad says on 30/Apr/13
As listed 48 hours ago in front of me. Ugly doo and boyfriend.
J.Lee says on 19/Apr/13
Rob I'm dying to know how tall she is in these monsters Click Here
[Editor Rob: likely 5ft 10, if I stood beside her in normal shoes I'd have to look up at her a bit!]
Jessica says on 11/Feb/13
Marla, Cameron looks taller than Jlo in that picture but Jennifer is closer to the camera so she seems taller than she really is. Ya there is no way she is as small as 5f1 and I did mention that the camera angel and Anna's platforms must have contributed to that but I do think that Jen is more like 5f3. It seems celebs that are 5f1 say they are 5f3 and those that are 5f3 say they are 5f5 or taller lol Wish they would just tell the truth already ;P
marla singer says on 6/Feb/13
@Jessica the photo angle is too bad... actually, Jennifer Lopez also looks about the same height as Cameron Diaz who is 5 ft 9 all day (it would be impossible in a good picture) so that pic is totally useless for height judging. Anyway 5 ft 1 is crazy, she's no less than 5 ft 4
Jessica says on 6/Feb/13
Anna Kendrick is 5f1 on here yet she seems so much taller than Jennifer in a picture I just saw of them together on that movie promotion. Click Here I bet Anna is wearing huge platforms and then there is the camera angel but still? Shouldn't Anna be the same size or smaller then Jen? Here Anna is with 5f1 Kristen Bell so it proves she's the same height. Click Here Can someone explain this to me cause I am thinking that Jen isn't 5f6 at all like she claims? She seems tall on her own but then with other celebs she does not.
markyoung says on 21/Jan/13
Jlo gorgeous lady , a great person , good shape and i love her stature about 159 cm so i would say tiny , but beautiful , polite , humble , to sum up she has a great personality.
Heightgirl says on 14/Jan/13
Jennifer Lopez with 5f6.5 Jessica Alba at the Golden Globes last night. Jen looked noticeably smaller to me, about 3 inches, probably cause she isn't wearing her platform shoes anymore. Click Here
JloBiglover says on 11/Jan/13
hey guys i saw her in person and her true height is 164 cm . that's it
Deb says on 9/Jan/13
Mathew, it does seem very possible. Jennifer Aniston's official height is 5f4.75 but many think she is really 5f3 - 5f4. Jennifer Lopez looks to me to really be 5f3 too.
Mathew says on 6/Jan/13
I think she'd be exactly the same height as Jen Aniston.
IdaDK says on 29/Dec/12
I'm from DK so I'm not sure about the measurements, but wouldn't that give her a BMI around 18,7...... how can she say that she's not thin??? she's 1 kg from being underweight....... if it's true anyway....
Heightgirl says on 5/Dec/12
diamondss, I would believe 5f4 for her but 5f6 is ridiculous. It's probably more like 5f3.5 because she just looks tiny next to people that are actually 5f6.
diamondss says on 25/Nov/12
it's hard to believe , but she's tiny . I saw her in person she walked beside me and she looked 5'4; then i asked to her cameraman who works for her tour and he said she's not 5'3 , her real height is 5'4. But she's gorgeous and i have to say on stage when she 's performing she looks tiny .
Heightgirl says on 22/Nov/12
5f5 and 115 lbs seems really off. I believe that she's more like 5f3 at 135 lbs.
Arch Stanton says on 16/Nov/12
Click Here

She claims 5-5 and 115 pound at 1:25 Rob.
jonnyfivestars says on 25/Oct/12
I saw her really close , i would say 164 cm is about right , considering her boy-toy isn't tall at all ; he is 168 cm .
Lo sgozzatore says on 23/Oct/12
Rob, here she's with Ben Affleck: Click Here (without his big heels she always wears)... Considering Affleck is about 6'2, it's hard to believe she's over 5'4 (she's also camera advantage!)
Silent d says on 21/Oct/12
I would say 164cm.
marla singer says on 22/Sep/12
I am as thin as she is, maybe even thinner, but I'm a 5'5.5" medium frame and weigh 129 lbs, she has to weigh more or to be shorter than this. Then, I guess 5'4"-5'4.5" and 120 lbs cause she doesn't look over 5'5".
johnnyfive says on 8/Sep/12
Heightgirl, I completely agree. 5'3 for J-Lo, I saw her in person and that's what she looked. 5'4 is generous and 5'5 is insane. Want more proof?

Click Here
jtm says on 4/Sep/12
can you downgrade her already? there are plenty of evidence that she is under 5'4. definitely not above average height.
Heightgirl says on 3/Sep/12
deppfan, Maria doesn't have platforms with 6 inch heels unlike Jlo and then there is the camera angel that makes Jennifer appear her hight. In the 2nd shot Jlo is smaller by about 3 inches. So let's factor in Jennifer's shoe advantage which seems to me is around two inches and that leads me to continue to believe that she's 5f3. What do you guys think?
deppfan says on 1/Sep/12

johnnyfive says on 1/Sep/12
I saw J-Lo back in early 2000 when she went to TRL. I was an audience member, and next to Carson Daly she looked 5'3, 5'4 tops, considering Carson is a solid 6'1. J-Lo is probably lucky if she even hits 5'4, I say 5'3 to 5'3.5 for J-Lo. I mean, Marc Anthony gets listed at 5'6, and J-Lo with super heels is the same height as him in regular shoes, so 5'3, or very weak 5'4 at best!
Aly says on 25/Aug/12
I've seen JLO in person and she looks tiny. She looks "curvy" compared to the rest in high school. She is my height, 164cm, and probably 120 pounds. She's a lot thinner than she was in the beginning of her career.
Sternking says on 21/Aug/12
You are right so Jessy is probably about 5' 6" or 5' 7".
Sternking says on 20/Aug/12
Can you do a page on Jessy schram as the internet has 2 or 3 very conflicting results. From 5ft or 152 cm to 5ft 7 170 cm? Thanks
[Editor Rob: I think 5ft can be safely ruled out since she was taller than ginnifer in Once Upon a Time :)]
Reader says on 16/Aug/12
I was reading US Weekly and one of the writers said they saw her in person and she was tiny, about 5'3".
ANDREA[ITA] says on 25/Jul/12
Rob, honestly, you really think she's 5'5? She looks short... You think she could be 5'4?
SK says on 23/Jul/12
She can't be both 5'6" and 120 lbs. She might be 5'6" with heels on, but she's always looked closer to 5'3". She's always wearing huge heels, and a woman who is truly 5'6" would easily look at least 5'10" in the kind of heels that she wears, but she doesn't. Also, 120 lbs. at 5'6" (or even 5'4"-5'5") would be very slim (i.e. size 2), but she's never been that thin and has said in past interviews that she's been a steady size 6. Her butt and thighs have always been large compared to the rest of the body. If she's truly 120 lbs., there's no way she can be 5'6". She looks like she's about 5'3" and 130-135 lbs.
jtm says on 10/Jun/12
that doesn't look 3 inches to me but willis is probably not 5'6 or lopez has higher heels on. still think lopez is 5'3. she always looks that height without her ridiculous heels.
Heightgirl says on 9/Jun/12
theblacklab, so true. Then you have stars like 5f4 Megan Fox and 5f2 Jennifer Love Hewitt that admit their true height and when next to other stars that don't it's so obvious of their fibs. Jlo next to 5f6 Rumer Willis at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards and she looked to me to be at least 3 inches shorter than her. Click Here
us3r says on 8/Jun/12
She's 5 ft 4.5
theblacklab says on 8/Jun/12
Heightgirl, you're possibly right, I find it hard to believe that celebs can so blatantly lie about their height (by 2 or even 3 inches!) and get away with it, sadder still is how they feel the need to lie in order to be percieved positively by the media.
Heightgirl says on 8/Jun/12
theblacklab, I think Jessica Sanchez is more like 5f1 and Steven Tyler is listed on here as being 5f9 but I think he's more like 5f8 so I think that Jennifer is around 5f3.
theblacklab says on 7/Jun/12
On American Idol, Jennifer does not look as tall as 5'10" Steven Tyler, despite having a 4-5" heel advantage. In other images, she only looks slightly taller than 5'2" to 5'3" Jessica Sanchez, both wearing similar heels. I'd guess she is 5'4", at the most a genorous 164cm. Hispanics are comparitvely short to North Americans, so Jennifer is still quite tall compared to other women of her race.
