Rising to be fair in that pic the camera is tilted in his favor, he looks near the same height as Bloom who's at least 3 inches taller
Kiera gets 5'6.5-75 for me and Mcavoy gets 171

@ jazz are you serious Selena Gomez is 164 or 165 cm max are you suggesting that Kiera knightly would measure in at less than 164cm ???
Morningheight 181.5cm said on 10/Jun/17
I wouldn't put her as being shorter than 5'6
Jazz said on 2/Jun/17
Leighton Meester is taller than Keira Knightley. Selena Gomez is the same height as Leighton Meester in Very Good Girls. More food for thought that Selena Gomez is taller than Keira Knightley barefoot

Peter, I see her 1 cm taller than McAvoy in that first full pic and she is bending her knee a bit, but you're right that it's a smaller difference than it should be. One reason is I think Keira is 5'6.5" because 171 cm Jerry Bruckheimer measured up at least as well to Keira when she apparently wasn't bending her knee: Click Here
There's a shot that shoes conclusively Bruckheimer doesn't have lifts either.
Jazz said on 30/May/17
Wow, logic below makes sense... Selena Gomez and Cara Delevingne were similar in height when they showered together (barefoot off course). Cara is often pictured much taller than Keira Knightley when together... Thus, Selena Gomez may actually be comfortably taller than Keira Knightley is they measured up barefoot.

I bet Selena Gomez trumps Keira Knightley should they stand together barefoot.

Keira Knightley is way shorter than Cara Delevingne when they posed together at the Serpentine Gallery event a few years ago. Strange that Cara Delevingne was almost identical in height with Selena Gomez when they showered together. Could Selena Gomez be taller than Keira Knightley?

Rob, please answer.
How is she and Mcavoy the same height. Is he wearing lifts/insoles
I know women tend to bend knees in heels to look shorter, but look through all of these. It doesn't matter her footwear he is taller than her or near her height in heels. He's at least 1 cm taller if they were to stand together barefoot.
Only other thing I can think is that he is wearing insoles. Might be that because mcavoy generally looks the 5'7
Editor Rob: there's always been a chance she was 5ft 6.5 range

She reaches 5'7'' with heels yet she just reaches my shoulder level .I just love seeing women below my shoulder level.gives me real feeling of being very tall
Jack said on 17/Jan/17
I love Keira knightly she is the best actress in pirates of the Caribbean I would love to meat her.
Justine said on 2/Jan/17
Strange pic on Google where Leighton Meester owns Keira Knightley by 2 inches- both in heels, Leighton's might be higher. Not only is Leighton taller, but seemingly much stronger built. Must be photoshopped. But then again, Leighton is much taller than Diane Kruger, and Diane and Keira are very similar in height. Leighton needs an upgrade, or Keira a downgrade? Leighton 168cm, Keira 165cm
Justine said on 2/Jan/17
Alicia Vikander is listed as 5'5.25 on this site, however, stood the same height, if not taller than Keira Knightley in the Anna Kerina Premieres in LA and the UK. Always knew Keira was overrated in height. Remember, she looks equally tall as Diane Kruger (who suprisingly was shorter than Dakota Fanning). Keira at 165cm maybe?
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Nov/16
I see from the comments that there seems to be quite a lot of scepticism over Keira's height. I have only ever read that she is 5ft7 and it is for this reason that I started thinking "isn't 5ft7 really quite small when seen on the silver screen?"
Having just read Elvis's argument for her being 2 inches smaller and then an interesting report from someone who had actually met her, I am beginning to wonder myself! I shall compare her to Lawrence Fox, 6ft3, next time I see 'The Hole' or I can choose from over 20 other of her films that I am happily in possession of.
One last thing: isn't she just so stunningly beautiful that you can easily overlook her height?
elvis said on 29/Oct/16
No way! 5ft 5in max. She has 3 inch heels next to James mcvoy who is 5ft 7in tall and she is max one inch taller.

Some people on here have no knowledge of height. 5'3, 5'4? Get real......
Peyman said on 24/Jan/16
I'd go with 169, close to 171 out of bed
& anything under that is nonsense
on her 2-3 inch heels, she looks as tall as rob next to Benedict cumberbatch.
Just met her yesterday said on 15/Nov/15
I live in NYC and went to see Therese Raquin and got her to sign my playbill yesterday. She looks just as beautiful in real life. I'd say she's only around my height though (5'5"). She is definitely not 5'7". I think most celebrities lie and add 2 inches to their height.
Az said on 10/Oct/15
I have posted here that I met her at the Ivy in LA years back and she was about 5'3". And again re: the pic with felicity jones. I correct myself...just returned from Paris FW and my sister and I met her again. She and my sister talked for a while, my sister is 5'4" and Keira was exact height. She is actually 5'4 not 5'3"!
d said on 1/Jul/15
funny how her inseam is short yet short white guys tend to have short legs in proportion to their height....white guys that are 5-7 tend to have an inseam under 30 which looks odd
Zarrin said on 26/Jun/15
She is definitely lying! Compare her height to Ellen DeGeneres (who is supposed to be 5'6.5 on this website), bearing in mind that Keira knightly is only a little taller than her in about 5 inch heels, whereas Ellen is just wearing trainers. I think Keira is about 5'3 to be honest.

Looks like a weak 5'6 to me
177cmGuy said on 30/Oct/14
Yeah 5'7 looks right. Back in 1999 when she was 14 she played Natalie portman's double in one of those star wars films. They must have been the same height around then.

she looks 3in shorter than 5'7 James Mcavoy in atonement when she's barefoot and he has shoes on.
GungAlba said on 11/Oct/14
She is obviously lying about her height she is smaller than someone who is 5ft tall with no heels while wearing heels that increase her height by about 6 inches. so to my calculations she must be about 4ft 6inches, which is so tiny GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GungAlba said on 9/Oct/14
she is 5ft 7inch with heels on, so she must be around 5ft 1-5inch

i suppose shes 5'7, maybe a bit under now that ive seen more photos of her. She is thin framed, but she has short arms and legs though. strange body proportions.

She has extra long body and very short legs, I'd say her legs were like someone of an equally proportioned 5ft 2/3 girl. Can't see her being anything under 5ft 6.
thatgirl said on 18/Feb/14
I really like her appearance, her height is perfect for a woman but i don't think that she's 170 cm. Look at her and James Mcavoy, according to James height (170 cm ) i think Keira's height is 165-166. her slim body makes her look taller. of course she isn't short, as i said her height and body is perfect but let's be honest,her height isn't 170 cm.
Just said on 27/Dec/13
She's 5'7 just like me. This height makes me sometimes look short and sometimes look tall.
There is nothing wrong with her proportions. Everyone has different proportions. Some have long legs, some have a slim waist. Each frame has it's own charm.
Slr said on 28/Nov/13
She looks pretty tall but i think her legs are very very short for her height. She doesn't have good proportions

You should know the truth: Keira is 162 cms. During the film festival in Rome I met Johnny Depp and other actors (like brad pitt..)and he is nothing more than 170 cms. Orlando Bloom that is 173 cms (I'm talking about Orlando thanks to my study with photos of Johnny e Orlando's height) has been Keira's boyfriend, and if you see the photos of her and him walking on the street you will give me reason! She is 13-15 cm (the photos in which they have very low shoes, like barefoot) shorter than him!

Actually she's 5'7

WOW I thought she was 5'9 or 5'10. Her slim figure makes her look taller.
5'7" short said on 25/Jan/13
I'm 5'7" (~172) tall and considered as short here in sweden since the average length here is at least 5'8", (174 cm). And I actually do see myself as short, but also that its quite an agreeable length to be. Not tall, not short.
logan noll 1996 said on 7/Oct/12
Looked 5'7 next to Johnny Depp. I'm currently 5'7 so her and I are eye-to-eye. I'm supposed to reach a peak of 6'4. If I reach that, I better start learning to look down at a lot of people. Anyways, 5'7 sounds right for Keira. She seems honest about her claim.
Silent d said on 5/Oct/12
5 foot 7.
Alexa said on 12/Aug/12
To the person saying 5ft7 isn't tall, don't be stupid! 5'7 is well above average height for a woman and while it's not as tall as 5'10 it certainly isn't regarded as short by any means!
5'7 women can look just as statuesque as those a few inches taller than them plus they can reach a good 5'11 in heels, I wouldn't say that's 'short' seeing it's taller than most men.
Q said on 9/Aug/12
5'5". People who have met Natalie Portman put her around 5'1" at best. If you look at photos of Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan together wearing similar heels, they are the same height. People who have met Carey Mulligan put her at 5'5". It seems the first thing you learn in the business is to add 2 inches to your actual height. It would be more accurate to quote Keira Knightley talking about how she towers over most actresses in Hollywood.

Somewhere i read 5'8.5(174) but i knew immediately that was false.I think 5'7 is right for her.

@ pinky the only picture in which Mcavoy is taller than Knightley is when she stood w/o her heels, all the other pics has her either slouching or standing with her legs apart, as to Mcavoy has heels on his boots as well. I'm quite sure she's 5'7. She stood as tall as Carey Mulligan in Never Let Me Go

In pride in prejudice she is basically as tall as Rosamund Pike who is a very tall person. I would say she's 5'7
yoneda said on 27/Jun/11
i guess you cannot compare a girl's height with that of a man. you cannot see what those guys have hidden in their shoes. whereas, a girl can barely hide anything in their high-heel shoes to add more height.
shaboopie said on 5/Jun/11
okay, the girl is 5'5". Now way in Hell is she 5'7"
Pinky said on 3/Jun/11
Sienna Miller said she is 5'6", do you also assume that she knows her own height? Because in the photos is also clear that there is not only 1 inch of difference between Keira and Sienna.
If she were 5'7", could not be in high heels next to James McAvoy and do not seem much taller than he.
ai said on 31/May/11
She said she is 5'7, I'm assuming she knows her own height. Plus she stands taller than Sienna Miller (clearly taller)

Venice, September. 1-2007. Keira, Rupert Friend and James McAvoy. I do not think Keira is fully straight, this picture is to see James' shoes:Click Here
Keira, James and the director of "Atonement". In the photo on which they are sit, you can see her shoes.
I'm not sure how high are those shoes, but I'd say 10 cm (4 inches), although they might be 12 cm. His shoes (in the other photo you can see them better) will give him about 3cm: 170+3=173. Her shoes, if they are 10 cm, will give her 8cm: 170+8=178. I don't see a difference of 5cm (about 2") in that photo, they look the same height.
James and Keira in a photoshoot for the Empire Magazine:Click Here
Does anyone know how tall Rupert Friend is?:Click Here
Keira and Sienna (presumably 5'5") during the filming of "The Edge of Love":Click Here
For me, Keira is 5'5" or maybe a bit more, but even 5'6" I think is too much for her. For an actress I think it's best not to be very tall (although 5'5" is still above average in most countries), she can wear heels and her partner did not seem short, even though he is. Also sure the cinema tricks to make an actor look taller, are less expensive than to the ones for a too tall actor appears shorter.
downgrade please said on 28/May/11
i'm sorry, she's beautiful and a fantastic actress, but she needs to be downgraded to 5'5" or 5'4.5" at least, because I saw her at the Misanthrope and I AM 5'7", she was at least 2 inches shorter than me.
Will said on 10/Apr/11
I am dead serious that Keira Knightley is 5'5 1/2" tops. No way in reluctant hell is Keira 5'7" tall.
gabby said on 6/Apr/11
hey, i'm in med schoool, so this is what we learn: if you want to determine someone's real height, you should pay attention on the his/hers arms (from the elbow to the shoulder). Look at Keira's arms: they are not of a person's who is 170 cms. Maybe 164 - 166.

You must have guessed this height with the help of KYOJI!!!
Anyway, 5'7 sounds about right.
Niamh said on 22/Dec/10
NO WAY is she 5'7. I am 5'1 and I saw her face to face in London after the opening night of her first stage role in The Misanthrope. I swear on my life she was quite close to my height; wearing boots while I was wearing sneakers. I spoke to her and was extremely surprised at the similarity of our heights. Maybe I was just extremely tired, but I would peg her at 5'4 MAXIMUM.
Sam said on 5/Dec/10
Don't forget in that picture in addition to lifts or heeled shoes, he has ELVIS hair. It's adding at least that additional "2 inches" as Pinky claims.
Also, Garfield could just be lying about his height. Actors often have to do that to appease the agents, casting directors and their own egos.
Anonymous said on 5/Dec/10
Pinky doesn't consider that 14cm heels do NOT actually give you 14cm, but merely around 10-11cm. Have you guys ever worn high heels?
santa said on 23/Nov/10
although i agree with pinky saying she might not be the full 5'7 she claims you need to remember that wearing shoes that are 14cm/5.5 inches do not make you that much taller. 14cm shoes will probably give you about 12cm/4.5 inches. Id peg her at 5'6, no taller than 5'6.5 :)
I agree said on 28/Oct/10
I agree with Pinky; 5.5 on average. Pinky's analysis was thorough
Audra said on 20/Sep/07
I'd definately say she's arround 5'7 I met her at the POTC 2 premiere and I'm 5'5, she was super nice, and really tall but I'm chalking that up to the heels she was wearing.
2good2btru said on 28/Aug/07
Ending the debate right here-I was NY last year and asked for her to sign a mag for me(she was with this really skinny guy)-she did-she was really nice, she said I had nice blue eyes-hers are dark brown. Anyway I am 5"9, my sis was with me she is 5"7 and was wearing flats-so was Kiera....my sis was an inch taller os so. BAM! Debate over. Keira is a def 5"6. BTW Jonny Dep is about 5"7 no way that gut is 5"10-no way.
not tall not short said on 29/Jul/07
FYI: people can have additional vertebrae (thoracic region), giving the 'long torso' many of you comment on. It elongates the form as well. Keira is one of the most beautiful faces around. She isn't short either, and is modelling in all the top ads in top fashion magazines very successfully. Yes... she has it all! She is also young and has a couple years of growth left, so don't be surprised if she says she is 5'8" because all of us continue to grow into our early 20s and growth spurts are unpredictable.
Alex said on 22/May/07
She was down to around 100lbs I read last summer or the summer before that. 100lbs or 105 or even 110lbs at 5'7 is skinny but I think she looks ok though.
And she does look all 5'7 though.

gina said on 13/Feb/07
all the people that have met claim she is around 5'5...im around that height and as im quite skinny i look longer and leaner.
Alex said on 13/Feb/07
Keira Knightley does have a disproportionately longer torso in comparison to her legs. She may be 5'7", but she's top-long. You can see some pictures on the Internet where she has her legs curled next to her body. A person with long legs will usually have the top of their knees reach at or above their shoulders (most runway models, in fact, actually go even above their shoulders). Hers top out way below her shoulders. And if you see images of her standing (preferably with shorts on, for full perspective) you can tell her torso is longer than her body.
Incidentally, Natalie Portman is also similarly proportioned (aka Denise Austin-"low butt"-to-ground, albeit she is shorter.

Gotxo said on 6/Feb/07
She's the kind of person that for some reason looks taller than she is, as , for
an instance, Logan's run Michael York.
I've always wondered if she's the classical intermediate value like 5' 7.5" a rounds down. Or maybe it's onlyy that she's incredible skinny (¿50Kg?

I wish I could be more informative but I never met Keira.I think your right Alex.
Anonymous said on 5/Feb/07
if kate beckinsale is 5ft 7, keira is 5ft6.
Alex said on 5/Feb/07
Glenn, thats what I was saying when I see someone 4-5 inches shorter than me its a big difference to me as I'm pretty much towering over them. I can see over the top of someone who is 5'8 and my eye level comes to the top of someone who is 5'8.5. And my eye level is a good 4.5 inches from the top of my head and I'm 6'0.5.
I'd say Keira could be 5'7 but her skinny frame can make her appear taller but 5'7 is very possible still, 5'3 I could agree with for Natalie, 5'2 at the very shortest. What does Keira weigh? I read 100lbs in a recent magazine but that estimate may not be the most accurate though. But for someone 5'7 100lbs is pretty light. She doesn't look bad to me though.
Glenn said on 15/Jan/07
I agree.thats a HUGE difference.and I agree that Portman might be shorter.
Alex said on 14/Jan/07
She says 5'7 and 5'3 is a huge different and she's right for the most part. Some people will say 4-5 inches is a small difference and I have to disagree. Thats a big difference. And Portman isn't even 5'3 from what I hear. A little less most say. When I am near someone 5'8 I'm in between 4 and 5 inches taller and I feel like I'm basically towering over them.
Rob, when you see someone 4-5 inches taller than you don't you feel towered over? I do.
Keira I believe is 5'7 though. What do you think Glenn?
Coffecakes said on 7/Jan/07
Saw a documentary on telly called Skinny Celebrities and Keira was in it - they had some diet expert on who stated her height at 5'6 and weighing in at about 110lbs!!
She doesn't appear to be a solid 5'7.
Rose said on 2/Jan/07
She doesn't quite seem to be 5'7, about 5'5 to 5'6 is right. She is teeny miny next to 6 ft plus Cilve Owen in King Arthur and next to her 6'0 ft boyfriend even shorter. I guess she looks tall becase of her slim frame.
Lara said on 30/Dec/06
Keira is about 5'5" TOPS. A friend of mine met her in London, and my friend is dead on 5'7, and she was barefoot and Keira was in flats when they met and she said Keira was 5'5 tops. No more, and no less.
James said on 4/Dec/06
Keira certainly looked all of 5'7" in Bend it Like Beckham. She was one of the tallest girls on the team. It's weird, though, I always thought she was taller. Her torso is really long compared to her legs!
Anonymous said on 15/Nov/06
I think 5'7" sounds reasonable, wouldn't say under 5'6" and maybe somewhere between the two. In Pirates of the Caribeean, barefoot on the beach Johnny Depp was barely taller than her.

5-6 1/2 Id say.

to me Keira really looks 5-7.Sometimes she looks taller, but she also wears high heels.
if you ask me, 5-7 sounds realistic. so, i would give her a 5-7.

i just read somewhere that she was 5'7" and only 7st 10lbs- she's always looked v. thin to me so perhaps this height is right cos i'm same height and 9st 7lbs and with about the two stone difference thats probs the right kinda stature.

Saw her at an afterhours bar/gallery in London's East End in late November and she was 5' 5" TOPS. I would say more accurately 5' 4". Re: Kelly Ripa - who I saw at The Candy Kitchen in Bridhgehampton, LI three months ago, she is lucky to be 5' 1".

I think she's 5'7. Her skinny build may make her appear a bit taller.

you can look and see the girl isn't shorter than 5'6.If you look at people like hilary duff and jessica simpson,rachel bilson who are all like 5'3-5'4 tops) and lindsay lohan and ashlee simpson (who are like maybe 5'5)keira looks taller than all of them.she has a long neck which may make her look taller but to say she is anything shorter than 5'6 is ridiculous.If Alexis Bledel is like 5'6 Keira would have to be 5'6 or if not 5'7.I believe she is 5'7 look at Eva Pigford.Even Keira standing next to Olrando Bloom she is definitely like 5'7 or at least 5'6.

Many of you, not all, are forgetting that female celebrities mostly wear heels in public. So if you're saying that she was a little taller than you in public when you met her (if you're not wearing heels), without heels she would probably be shorter. Just a reminder :)

In Pride & Prejudice, she doesn't appear to be 5'4, but taller. I'd say no shorter than 5'6.

Sat at the table next to Keira and her boyfriend on Saturday, March 4th at the Ivy in L.A. She was 5'4", not quite at 5'5". Very petite but beautiful with great hair and giant diamond earings.

To Nicole: hey, I really don't think Keira Knightly is 5'5, but if you think Reese Witherspoon is 5'4, and Keira is 3 inches taller, then that's what you're implying. Eveyone knows Reese is 5'2. She even claims it.

um, yeah. I heard she was 5'4" tops. & alot of places lie about her height. She doesn't seem that tall to me.
[Editor Rob: I read this on some forum a while ago with estimates by people who saw her filming p&p, anywhere from 5ft 4-7...]

i saw her on tv next to reese witherspoon and she towared over her.iv seen witherspoon in real life and she seemed around 5'4. i think 5'7 is pretty acurate
Alex said on 6/Feb/06
She doesn't look under 5'6 at all. I am not sure about 5'7 but its possible but shes not under 5'6. Crazy seeing those 5'4-5'5 claims.
Claire said on 19/Jan/06
no way is keira short or average height! even if she is 5ft6 she is still above average.
Billie said on 16/Jan/06
I saw her on the red carpet and since I am 5'6.5 and she was a little bit taller than me so I think it is about right

Anonymous, Clive Owen also wears shoes. Keira looks to me the height that she has gived.
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/06
She looks 5 inches shorter than clive owen, in 4 inch heels. I would say she is 5'5" tops.
Keira said on 4/Jan/06
You're right, I am about 5ft6.

Yes, I also think she's at least 5'6.5'' tall, 5'7'' or 5'8'' could be more accurate by now. The girl can still grow, she's 21, right? And she really is not a small actress.
Caitlin said on 31/Dec/05
she is about 3 inches shorter than me when i met her so shes around 5'6.5"
Amanda said on 16/Dec/05
Short is under 5' 3". The average height is 5' 4.5" remember? Weirdo. I think Keira is 5' 7" which is actually on the tall side for a woman. Where do people come up with the average woman height being 5' 10"? Because that's what it would have to be for a woman of 5' 7" to be short! 5' 10" is the average height for a MAN!
Britpop said on 13/Dec/05
I think she's just one of those gorls that looks tall b/c she's skinny. However, vertically, when compared with others she is definitley on the short/average side. I don't think it's possible that she is even 5'6".

She looked 5'4" IN THE RECENT VOGUE.

keira looks tall, she is definitely not below 5'5. I mean you can tell she is tall by just looking at her because she doesn't look stubby

5'4". Sorry dudes.

Maybe this discussion belongs in the Kiera Knightley section. :S
Daniel Craig is 5'10 tops. The shortest actor to ever portray James Bond.
heightfan said on 10/Nov/05
She was on Regis and Kelly yesterday, and appeared to be 4 inches taller than Kelly. (both in heels) I would say 5'7 seems accurate.
Robinz said on 8/Nov/05
I think she is 5'4 and 3/4".
Lindsay said on 5/Nov/05
Keira really looks short in some pictures like in fashion mags. She might be doin a Paris Hilton and addin a coupla inches on, I estimate she might be around 5"5- 5"6, I don't think she could get away with such a lie as 5"7 if she were any smaller!

Kate Bechinsale is not 5'8". She is shorter than the 5'7" Cate Blanchett. Keira is not over 5'5".

Couple of sightings from a Keira forum:
"i would say that she was about 5ft 3 or 4 you must understand that i was preety awe struck when she walked up to me and my little girl but she was definetely shorter than me and im 5,6 shes very very naturally preety and dainty"
"when i met Keira at the King Arthur prem she was a little bit taller than me.... me being 5'5""
Smoke said on 6/Apr/05
She's shorter than Kate Beckinsale, and I think Beckinsale truely is about 5'8", making Keira 5'7" tops.
dmeyer said on 6/Apr/05
she does look 5'8'' in pirates of ....
Smoke said on 6/Apr/05
She's really 5'7" tops, if Kate Beckinsale is truely under 5'8" then Keira is under 5'7". Granted in the pics of them together Keira is much closer to the camera than Kate and it's generally harder to gauge women's heights then men's because women wear much bigger heals. In the pics I've seen with Keira and Kate, Kate really does look an even inch taller than Keira. If Kate is 172 cm, then Keira is really 169 cm.
Ricardo said on 6/Apr/05
I would say Keira is even taller than 5'7. I've seen her a few times as she used to live near me, and shes got one of those straight up and down figures, but she was very lanky, around 5'8 to 5'10 i would say. she certainly isnt short.
[Editor Rob: She's as thin as sin which really does make her look taller.]
jimbo said on 28/Mar/05
No way is keira knightley 5'7 , my friend was an extra on the film King Arthur and he met keira in person and he told me she was tiny, he was surprised that she was short because she looked tall on screen . According to my friend she is 5'4 at the most .
