Natalie Portman's Height
5ft 3in (160 cm)
American Actress best known for roles in films like Star Wars Phantom Menace, Leon, Black Swan and Thor has claimed to stand tall at "five foot three"
Keira Knightly said in a 2004 edition of The Sunday Mirror that after meeting Natalie "There is a huge height difference. I'm 5ft 7 and she's 5ft 3"
The first thing people always say to me is, 'You're so much shorter in person.' I'm like, 'That's really nice and friendly!'

I have never read that Natalie Portman is 5ft3, only 5ft2 or less! In 'Black Swan' she looks at least 2 inches shorter than 5ft4 Mila Kunis.

I remember that she often had to stand on a ramp or box when filming her scenes with Chris Hemsworth in the Thor movies. It seems that they had more than one foot of difference between them, so 5'1" to 5'2" seems more realistic.
Holly said on 11/Aug/16
I doubt she is any taller than 5'1". In the photos that Marla Singer posted in 2013, she is standing next to Scarlett Johansson. Scarlett is wearing flats and Natalie is wearing approx 2" heels, but they are still the same height. She may even be a bit less than 5'1".

she's actually shorter than johansson.

5'1, 5'2" the most, she is about the same height as Scarlett Johansson
Biswajit Debnath said on 13/Apr/16

Dan said on 4/Feb/16
I think she is 5' 2". She looks tiny next to her 5' 10" boyfriend, even in high heels!
Anya said on 21/Dec/15
I ran into her(literally)in Harvard Square when she was attending school there. We were going opposite ways down an aisle in a store and ended up basically face to face. She is Tiny! Im 5'1 and can say with confidence that she is AT MOST a bit under 5'2. She actually seemed shorter then me at the time but she was slouching a bit, Either way, she is an extraordinarily beautiful petite woman!

@Alien They're the same height :) Scarlett is 5'3 too
Alien said on 18/Feb/15
She is a little bit taller than Scarlett Johansson, I say 5'2" to 5'3"
lollipop1995 said on 31/Jan/15
I'm 5'3 and in flats, Natalie looks to be the same height as me
Linda said on 15/Dec/14
She's probably only 5'1. She can't be more than 5'2 at most. She looks really small. Other actresses who are actually 5'3/5'4 don't look as small as she does. Going by the two-inch rule (most people are listed as two inches taller than they really are), then she'd be 5'1.
Sam said on 15/Dec/14
I'm guessing due to her appearance in Jake's photo, she is wearing larger heels than the other ladies, she'd probably appear more petite in flats or barefoot compared to them.
Sam said on 31/Jul/14
She has one of the most gorgeous faces in movies today, although I thought her look was too thin in Black Swan. Usually don't go in for girls this petite, but her beauty is hard to ignore. Something about her makes me think she'd be...uh, difficult in person.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jun/14
BTW Rob you made a good call downgrading Winona as Portman is a bit taller. I think she is close to 5 ft 3 even if she can seem smaller but Winona is definitely shorter!
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jun/14
She's without a doubt one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jun/14
Looks 5'2 in Black Swan. @Mid 190s Seriously you think it really matters how tall she is and it makes her less attractive because she's not 5 ft 11? Weird. IMO that she's petite it makes her more vulnerable and gorgeous looking.
leonari said on 4/May/14
Below 160. Very sure about that.
Brad said on 3/Apr/14
5-2. Spears had her easy by a duece.
joy said on 19/Jan/14
See her with Reese Withepsson. Same height
hello said on 4/Jan/14
Olivia thirlby is 5ft3 and natalie is like an inch shorter so 5ft2
klk said on 27/Nov/13
scarlett is obviously taller and I highly doubt she would say she is shorter than she really is. natalie needs a downgrade
Arch Stanton said on 1/Nov/13
More 5 ft 2 range, She makes Chris Hemsworth look 6'4"-6'5" in Thor. Most beautiful Hollywood actress though IMO.
Silent d said on 21/Oct/13
Saw her on graham norton show and she was tiny. She said she had to stand on a ramp next to chris hemsworth and she said she makes anyone look tall. She was 25cm shorter than chris in 5 inch heels. 5 foot 2. Petite but pretty.
omar13 inches said on 21/Oct/13
I think 5 ft 3 seems too high after seeing the hoe on the Graham Norton Show?
K said on 21/Oct/13
I think this list may be accurate.
Britney Spears (5'4)
Scarlett Johansson (5'3)
Natalie Portman (5'2)
Reese Witherspoon (5'1)
Christina Ricci (5'0)
Eva Longoria (4'11)
Brad said on 21/Oct/13
5 feet 2, the Spears photo is not a 5' 3" person by Britney.
Get Shorty said on 19/Oct/13
Natalie was on the Graham Norton Show last night. She referred to her height in saying that she makes anyone look tall...
said on 4/Sep/13
I think Natalie is no more than 5f2 imo. Britney Spears is 5f4 and looked more than 2 inches taller than her in this pic: Click Here
bob said on 11/Aug/13
I stood by her in 2004 at the Melrose Trading Post, in Hollywood.
She is the same height as my daughter, 5 foot. Maybe, 5'1" max. She was dressed casual, I think sandals, if I recall. She is tiny! And, I'm only 5'7", if that.
truth179cm said on 14/Jul/13
Knightley is overstating a bit. It is a big height difference, no doubt, but hardly huge, I mean she is not 5ft9-10 or something.
Vivi said on 3/Jul/13
I think Marla singers right, I think she's closer to 5'2.5".
said on 2/Jul/13
Natalie is 5 ft 2.25 in, because she looks def shorter than Scarlett who is 5 ft 3. 1 Click Here

3 Click Here
said on 21/Jun/13
I highly doubt she's any less than 5'2.5" considering she's taller than 5'1.5" Reese Witherspoon and Reese's Witherspoon shoes have a platform while Natalie's doesn't and Natalie is still a tad taller
Jessica said on 21/Jun/13
She's taller than Reese Witherspoon...
MikeyD said on 17/Jun/13
She looks short alongside Dustin Hoffman. She's definitely shorter than 5'3 then maybe 5'2 just to be generous.
Wendy said on 1/Jun/13
She is 5'3. She has a skinny frame. And June is right, it's ridiculous that she's short. When I watching Chicago, i always thought she was short cause she was super thin to play Roxie and I thought she was wearing work boots to make her two inches taller but when I watch bridget jones diary, she's looks average height and kinda of chunky since she gained 25 pounds for the role so if Natalie was a size 14 like bridget jones, she'll prove to you all she's 5'3.
Tim said on 31/May/13
She's around 5'2-5'3. And Renee zellweger is definitely 5'4 or taller. I've seen them together around wearing scandals in Los Angeles. But from the look of it, Renee has a good two inches taller than her so Renee needs an upgrade.
said on 5/May/13
i was bored so i compared her height to her car. she has a mercedes e350 sedan, and according their website, is 57.1 inches tall. the sandals give her absolutely no extra lift and she still looks about 6 inches taller than the car so i'd say 5'3" is pretty accurate. i think it's because she's really skinny.. so it makes her look even smaller. gorgeous woman :)
June said on 3/May/13
If she's 5'1 then Renee is probably 5'1 too. I doubt she's that short.
Chezza said on 1/May/13
She is 158cm, she looks smaller, but she is 158cm.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Mar/13
Most gorgeous woman in Hollywood in my opinion, love her. I thought she was about 5'4" but in thinking about does seem a bit smaller.
Violet said on 20/Feb/13
Natalie is gorgeous! It doesn't matter how tall she is. I don't feel so bad now that I know she is the same height as me. I've been guessed at 5 feet once. Most of the time people guess I'm 5'4". I'm petite like natalie, 104lbs and small boned. So the below comments, I understand why people would guess 5 feet or even 5'4".
R jha said on 18/Feb/13
Height ain't got to do with acting.
jenna said on 25/Jan/13
I met her at Thor premier and she's very short. I'm 5'4 and she was my height in 2-3 inch heels! She's 5'1-2 for sure.
ali said on 20/Jan/13
these heights of 5' are ridiculous. look at pictures of her and mila kunis. they are almost the same height! like how is she really short? 5'4 is average people!
Jack said on 10/Jan/13
Hmm... I had to wait in line behind her at Heathrow in 2007 when I was 15 and 5'9.5", wearing converse shoes as I did all the time back then. We were standing there for about ten to fifteen minutes and she never appeared to be anything more than 5'1" at best. I really can't see how she'd make 5'3" except in heels.
K said on 30/Nov/12
She doesn't look 5'3" to me at all! Maybe she is. She looks more 5'2" or even 5'1".
Trey said on 25/Nov/12
I don't see more than 5'1 - 5'2.
Silent d said on 21/Oct/12
I heard she was really short but i never thought 5 foot. I always thought at least 5 foot 2. How does kiera knightley know she is 5 foot 3? Did they stand side by side to measure or did kiera just agree with natalie? 5 foot 2.
5\'4\" said on 12/Oct/12
I saw her in Harvard Square and that girl is tiny! Tiny, petite, waif. She was 5 feet, tops. 5'1" close to but no taller. I was quite surprised at her slight frame. She must have been 5'3" in heels, which would technically make me a staturesque 5'7"! If I kept the same poundage and stretched 3" that would make me willowy too! Sweet! ; )
poco loco said on 5/Oct/12
Kiera Knightly says in the Sunday Mirror magazine in July 2004 after meeting her co-star from Episode 1, that regarding Natalie Portman: "There is a huge height difference. I'm 5ft 7 and she's 5ft 3"
how is this height difference HUGE???isnt it only 10cm??my gfriend is 5'10'' and her best friend is 5'2''
in that way of thinking i (being 6'3'')have a huge height difference with the entire wordl.
Maiasatara said on 26/Jul/12
Met her while at Harvard. I'm telling you, she's right around 5'0". That's IT. I AM 5'6.5" and had to bend my head down to look at her. On the most generous of days I might be persuaded to go as high as 5'1" but NO TALLER. Bottom line: what does it matter to anyone? I'm only annoyed that so many people here seem insistent and invested in the height of a person they neither know nor have met, and are basing wild assumptions on photographs with other people they don't know, who's heights can't be confirmed either!!! I came to the site to compare my height with a few people for fun and was shocked to find people arguing about the relative heights of STRANGERS. This page needs to come with a disclaimer, like psychic or horoscope sites, that it's for entertainment purposes only. Why not invest this much energy scrutinizing the candidates in the next political election in your area.
Silent d said on 5/Feb/12
160cm. She is slightly shorter than mila kunis. Really attractive.
said on 30/Jan/12
i looked at tb's link and then watched where she was actually on ellen's show.
at 0:17 in this video clip Click Here
they stood right next to each other and ellen looks like she's about 3 inches taller.
natalie's shoes didn't give her much height, but ellen's had about an inch on hers.
either ellen shrunk a lot or natalie is a bit taller than what you guys think.
5'3" for sure. 5'3.5" works too. maybe even 5'4"
it doesn't really matter all that much.
nada said on 29/Jan/12
Natalie and friends claim 5'3" -5'4"
Non-Hollywood people who have met her in person report 5ft to 5'2" (including folks in that height range).
I'm going to going with an in-person estimate average of 5'1"
said on 27/Jan/12
natalie looks like she's wearing flats. ellen degeneres is about 5-7? she has shoes on in this video, but then again she is standing a little bit farther from the camera.. and has a slightly worse posture.. but that shouldn't cause too much of a height difference.
i'd say 5-3 works
said on 26/Jan/12
She and 5'3 Renee Zellweger are about the same height.
Amiwhat-uh said on 26/Jan/12
Say what you will, Natalie is 5'3, and this is a very accurate height for her. My God, have any of you met someone of this height? Stand next to a Redwood tree if you're feeling so tall. I dare you.
jtm said on 25/Jan/12
jeong and kaling both have terrible posture and they are still at least inch taller than portman.portman was also shorter than 5'3 renee zellweger.
NP is 5\'3
said on 24/Jan/12
NP may have a small bone structure, but she is very much 5'3, evidenced by a recent reading of The Apartment. Afterwards, she posed with the rest of the actors who had participated, two of which are 5'3"/5'3.5" Mindy Kaling and 5'3.5"/5'4" actor Ken Jeong. She appears to be wearing flats, Mindy, tennis shoes, and Ken is wearing tennis shoes:
Sam said on 13/Jan/12
I think 5'3" is accurate for her
Moke said on 12/Jan/12
Maybe a cm or two shorter than that?
Silent D said on 25/Oct/11
She is 158cm. I saw garden state and six foot jd from scrubs was towering her. She was a little taller than his shoulder. In all her movies she looks short. On letterman, absolutely looked tiny. Very attractive though!
Ginny R. said on 19/Oct/11
5´3 max? That´s why Hayden Christensen got the role in Star Wars instead of Jared Padelecki??
Mr. Tempus said on 16/Oct/11
She is 5'2 at much
said on 11/Oct/11
Natalie cannot be more than 5ft1 or –GENEROUSLY— 5ft2, if we compare her to her “Black Swan” co-star Mila Kunis, who is around 5ft3– 5ft3.5. Check out this image from "Black Swan": Click Here
This picture is good because you can see both of their feet at the same time, both are standing up pretty straight and they're both wearing flat-heeled shoes-- no boxes to stand on, no heels, no camera tricks. Mila definitely has inches on Natalie—perhaps around 2 to 3 inches.
If Mila is in the 5ft3.5- 5ft4 range, no way can Natalie cannot be more than 5ft1-5ft2 at the MOST. NO WAY is Natalie 5ft3 or over.
Sean73 said on 9/Oct/11
I just saw black swan and looked the same with 5-3 mila kunis.
MsKitty said on 25/Sep/11
I think this is accurate for her....just watched V for Vendetta again and next to 5'10.5 Stephen Rea and 6'2 Hugo Weaving she appears to be about 5'3. There are several shots of Portman standing next to both actors and she is always wearing flats. She is very petite but not as short as some folks seem to think...
gabriel said on 23/Sep/11
perfect height for me im 5"6 a guy should be 3 -4 inches taller
when more than that i think it looks stupid
Phil said on 21/Sep/11
She is not that short. I think she is 159 cm - 161 cm.
I guess 5 foot 3 is accurate.
Mione said on 14/Sep/11
I always thought she looked taller - she has longer legs and a shorter torso, I think. I'm 5'3" and I look WAY shorter (probably because I have shorter legs and a longer torso).
Her height suits her beautifully, though.
bence said on 14/Sep/11
ı think 155-158
whooodini said on 19/Jul/11
looks 5-1 mostly to me
rach123 said on 17/Jul/11
i think she looks taller than 5'3
Sarah said on 15/Jul/11
I'd say either 5"3 or 5"3.25 No higher or lower
Aly said on 8/Jul/11
She's about 5'2 or 5'2.5 because next to a 5'3 Mila Kunis (she's stated this herself, I don't think she would go lower) she's always been a tiny bit shorter. People think she's tinier than that because she's got a very big head - often it's bigger than even people taller than her!!!
Button said on 2/Jul/11
What's with all the massive downgrades on this page? I cannot believe how many people think Natalie Portman is 5'0". Seriously, I don't think she can be that short. If anyone can show me a picture of her looking 5'0" I would like to see it. You know, just a picture of her with someone else whose height we're quite sure of, and where we can see the heel heights as well. For her to be 5'0" she would have to be at least 3.5 inches shorter than the 5'3.5" listed Mila Kunis. There's never a 3.5 inch difference between them, more like 1 inch, so Natalie seems 5'2.5" at the lowest. And I wouldn't even try telling me Mila is 5'1" or something crazy like that, because that is just plain insane. Mila is not that short. If you Google images of her with 5'5" listed Ginnifer Goodwin, they are near the same height, and their heel sizes are similar. 5'4" range for Mila is believable. I can just about see why some people may say 5'2" for Natalie, she does look that on occasions, so fair enough. 5'0" though? That seems so absurd. I hope people aren't downgrading so much for the sake of it. I find it hard to believe all the people who say 5'0" actually think that. Why do so many people on here downgrade so much? How does she look 5'0"? Show me a picture where she looks 5'0" then please. I don't think you will be able to. I don't reckon very many people fully realise what 5'0" looks like. My opinion is Natalie is 5'2.5" (159cm) or 5'3" (160cm), but more likely the latter.
Gareth said on 28/Jun/11
5' or 5'1"
Ariana said on 28/Jun/11
Big downgrade on this one.
burby said on 27/Jun/11
5'1.5" would be my guess.
yoneda said on 27/Jun/11
She really has a very big head compared to her bone structure, maybe just becos she is smart, and a big head makes she look shorter than she really is. i guess she is around 5'3".
Tere said on 22/Jun/11
yes.... she's DEFINATLY shorter than 5'3, if she was that height i don't think people would call her short, tiny like all the time! i think she is like 5'1 or maybe 5'2...
Cindy said on 2/Jun/11
She is not around 5'2! I am 5'2 and I saw her live, she was shorter than me! She's 5', but very well proportioned, that's why she can pass as 5'3...
Mark said on 30/May/11
My guess is around 5'2, maybe a little above. She's shortish, but really not that short. The reason a lot of people think Portman's super tiny is because she's otherwise just very petite- small frame, fine facial features, she's just very delicate-looking. If I just looked at her with no reference point I would think 5'0 or even below. But in reality she's more the short side of average.
Cindy said on 30/May/11
@ 5'8.18758596 LOL what do you mean ''that's more Whiterspoon or Longoria territory''?? Longoria is 5', just like Natalie, and Reese is 5'2, actually taller than Natalie...
Shannon Gray said on 28/May/11
I think she's 5'3, you're right. But that would mean she's my height, and I'm 13 years old.
Kiffy said on 27/May/11
She is not 5'3.
She is clearly much below since she is towered by mila kunis in black swan so she needs to be downgraded.
Lizzy Reed said on 26/May/11
jtm, maybe 5'4/5'5 is average height for females of this generation, which would make Nat slightly under the average height, not dwarf by any means, maybe short compared with the whole 90's generation of tall Hollywood girls, still not THAT small
jtm said on 24/May/11
she calls herself a very short lady. 5'3 is average height for a female.
5\'8.18758596 said on 23/May/11
She's small alright, but not "dwarf", that's more Whiterspoon or Longoria territory, plus Natalie is incredibly gorgeous, the thing is that she's usually cast alongside tall men, so she looks consistently short, when she isn't "that" short, since 5'5 is average height for women, how do you expect her to appear "average" next to the mostly tall cast of Thor?? She's below average, maybe kinda petite, but she has the looks to kill anyways. Rob, your thoughts on this?
#% said on 22/May/11
many girls in asia / southern asia are around 5' and they look gorgeous. what is up with those people saying that she has the body of a 10 year old? i think she looks beautiful and def looks like a mature woman.
tall girl said on 18/May/11
sorry people that was wrong i wanted to copy paste that comment in mandy's moore height discussion not here
here people are mean with small girls
tall girl said on 17/May/11
i am also 5 10 and it is so funny reading comments on this side and realizing how racist and insecure a person can be.it is so difficult for some people to accept the diffetent.mandy moore is smoking hot but because she is tall the comments are like-beast,giant,unbelievable,shoking etc.If she was 5 2 the comments would be like how pretty she is and how great are shorties.of course shorties are great but tall girls are fine aslo.i am 1.78 and i am with a 1.90 guy(i had never problem at dating)and my best friend is 1.57(5 2)and we have no problem with that.and i hang around with people at any height,but i would never want to meet persons like @anonymous @M.P. @ dan because they seriously need a psychologist,they are kind of funny.Joker (RIP heath)was right at The Dark Knight--people are mean,veeeery mean.if the comments are from americans,then i guess that the american girls are an average 4 11(i dont say that this is bad)if you think that 5 11 for a girl is THAAAAAT strange,not even in greece,where girls are around 5 feet i havent met so much racism
greek guy said on 17/May/11
dear @ouch you are so funny.''Some of you are so cruel-most tall women can look like trannys''
Stephanie said on 10/May/11
I think she's about 5' or 5'1" - I'm 24 and only 4'9. Many people think I'm anywhere from 12 to 16 years old and I have to sit on cushions to drive, but I'm completely in proportion and not a dwarf at all. There's nothing wrong with being small or petite. Many Asians are smaller as well and no one seems to think anything's wrong with that - so why is it so bad to be short if you're Caucasian?
Cindy said on 1/May/11
I'm 5'2 and saw her at a New York airport 2 years ago and she was in flats, I was in Converse, she was def 5'. I am too offended like ouch, kate and mikey because midgets are under 4'5. It's ridiculous to call her that, she's just short, period.
LA said on 16/Apr/11
Fed - I lied about my height on my driver's license. Nobody checks. I said I'm 5'6", but I'm really 5'5." So I wouldn't put too much weight on a self-reported ID.

No she has the body of a child but the face of a model.
At most shes 160cm

Some of you are so cruel, shes tiny and in proportion, she looks like a little angel, nothing wrong with being petite if you ask me most tall women can look like trannys.
jasperrrrr said on 4/Apr/11
seems about a foot shorter than ashton kutcher whos 6'2.5 so 5'3 seems perfect
Kate said on 1/Apr/11
there's nothing wrong with her height. most women are near that 5'4 and under mark. she's not a dwarf either. if she lives in LA, then 5'3 would make her pretty normal. many other celebrities aren't very tall either, some just count their height when they're wearing stilettos.
Mikey said on 29/Mar/11
Can I just say I'm offended by everyone calling the 5-foot mark "almost dwarf" territory. That is incredibly offensive and mean-spirited. I know a lot of women around that height and am one myself and I'm tired of people talking about it like it's a disability. And also, what's wrong with being a dwarf?
said on 23/Mar/11
She seems closer to 5f1.5 or 5f2 because she looks the same height as Rosie Perez who claims to only be 5f1.5 Click Here Click Here
Chameleon said on 18/Mar/11
She looks very tiny and scrawney indeed..
Bob said on 8/Mar/11
Whether she is 5' or 5 4" it doesn't change the fact that she normally has the body of a 10 year old boy. Her face is her strength and she was much prettier when she was younger. Maybe motherhood will change that??
Sarah said on 8/Mar/11
Brent, Just of curiosity how tall are you? My husband sucks at estimating height, especially when someone is a lot shorter than him. He's is always off by a few inches. I find it easier to estimate height when it's closer to mine. But everyone is different.
Most people who have met her still estimate her height to be 5' 0" - 5" 2. There will always be some outlier that finds her taller. I'm going with the average.
And seriously what is up with her tiny hands??? In some pictures they look really odd.

Met her in LAX once. She's around 5'3 or 5'4.
Lindsay said on 2/Mar/11
Everyone who has actually met her in person and has posted on this blog or elsewhere claims she is 5'0"-5'1". I'd trust them over those guestimating via photos. The weirdest thing to me is how tiny her hands look; I recently saw her giving an interview and they looked like the hands of a small child. Creepy.

said on 28/Feb/11
Ok, so pictures aren't that accurate... But this one shows how tiny she is in general. Of course don't use it for it's exactness, but she really looks the size of a child. They are all in flats -- Ashton supposedly 6 1" and ben Larson is about 6 2". Who knows how tall she is, but she looks the height of a child.
lisa said on 20/Feb/11
yes pictures cannot prove heights no matter what it depends on the whether it's the angle, perspective and lighting; all can be inaccurate. people who don't see it though are not "in denial" or "blind." this probably goes for basically all pictures
lisa said on 19/Feb/11
I don't think you are "in denial" or "blind" when looking at pictures differently after all we can't use photos as accurate evidence just like we say

Even if she's tiny, she still makes good couple with Ashton Kutcher in "No Strings Attached". =) Kutcher is very tall though.
said on 18/Feb/11
To anonymous: She always has amazing posture so that's no argument...that coupled with her very skinny build is what's making people think she's taller than she is. And I agree with Emma, it is entirely appropriate to judge height on pictures. Here is one of her with ScarJo. ScarJo is supposedly 5'3" and is not wearing heels, while Natalie is and she only looks half an inch taller. At the very least she should be downgraded .5" and if you don't see that, then I'm sorry but you're clearly in denial or blind. Some of yall act like it's this impossible, negative thing that she's tiny, but it's not a bad thing at all. It's just the truth.
Jonathan said on 17/Feb/11
She has the most gorgeous deep brown eyes. I don't care if she is 4 foot. She'd mesmorise me at any height ;-)I'm 6'2" and love short girls.
Emma said on 16/Feb/11
@anonymous: If you can't judge height based on photos, at live award events, or in movies the movies, then all that is left is judging height in person. Most in person meetings describe her as under 5' 3". While some doctor might have told her she is 5'3" at some point, she clearly seems shorter in person-- barely 5' 2". That is saying something!
Anonymous said on 15/Feb/11
Guys stop downgrading her. you cannot be sure he's 5'1' unless you see a photo of her straight posture... I agree with ruth its ridiculous that you guys are using photos as evidence of her height. many times we can look shorter depending on our posture on photos... i dont doubt she is under than 5'3 she doenst look that shorter than mila kunis.
Sarah said on 9/Feb/11
If she looks a foot shorter than Ashton, then either he should be upgraded or she should be downgraded to at least 5' 2.5". Ashton is tall, but you can tell there is at least a foot difference between them.
Sarah said on 9/Feb/11
There is no way she is 5 3". At award shows she is always the shortest one (even in tall shoes). She really should be downgraded. They don't even measure you at the DMV, how in the world could that be considered accurate? Kiera was estimating in her comment, I don't even think kiera is a full 5 7", more likely just shy of it.
Sam said on 7/Feb/11
She does appear to be a solid foot shorter than Ashton Kutcher recently
anonymous said on 20/Jan/11
She has about the same body type as me, petite, semi-muscular calves, about the same length in limbs when i've seen pictures....she has to be under 5'3... I would say 5'1" or 5'0
Brad said on 18/Jan/11
I'm looking at stills from Ashton & Natalie in her new one...Ivan Reitman (a really funny guy, I met him in '86 at Universal) must have really done some outstanding box work and massive heels with Nat'. I'd love to see his eyes answering how he got that duo in each shot.
Biff Tannen said on 17/Jan/11
She is closer to five feet flat than 5'3". She is almost a midget.

Natalie claims she's 5'4". I don't think so Natalie.

I don't understand how she has not been downgraded yet?? She is indisputably shorter than 5'3" Mila Kunis and ScarJo. Seriously downgrade her already.
June said on 11/Jan/11
Met her at Harvard. She is 5'0" or 5'1" tops. Might even be shorter than 5'0". Really, really small and really, really skinny.
Brad said on 11/Jan/11
Friend of mine just met her a few days ago in Palm Springs, she's 5' 1" tops, really small. They really must use boxes with male leads, 5' 1" is so short.
leonari said on 7/Jan/11
5'3" is short enough. She is not tiny tiny.
lisa said on 26/Dec/10
I think when you see someone in person you also have to take account that you may not both be standing completely upright and see what shoes you are wearing. I have good posture and that fools some people who don't
Mila said on 23/Dec/10
I met Natalie in the village one day when I was out getting a tattoo. I went up to her and started choppin it up with her. She was very nice. I am 5'2.5 and she was just a tiny bit below my eye level. So I know for a fact that she isn't 5'3 (my most educated guess would be 5'1.5 - 5'2 at the most. And as for the License thing, that doesn't mean much because I put that I was 5'5 on my license/i.d card. Lol The dmv doesn't check your height.
Cliff said on 18/Dec/10
Natlie is shorter than Scarlett Johansson AND Mila Kunis. How can she possibly be 5ft3? I doubt she's taller than 5ft1.
said on 17/Dec/10
Shorter at least 2 inches than Mila Kunis who claims to be 5'4.
Bon said on 7/Dec/10
5'1 or little over that

lisa said on 22/Nov/10
Ruth: you are absolutely right and I totally agree-you can't use pictures for comparison or evidence of height. so many celebs on this site are said to be certain heights just because of pictures in comments but a lot of people don't know these facts. I am glad you explained it like you did and brought it out in the open.
said on 22/Nov/10
Obviously photos cannot be used as absolute evidence, but they're great if you'd like a little perspective.
Case in point:
with Ashton, Click Here
with tall friend, Click Here
While no definitive height can be determined based on these photos, I can plainly see that she is rather short.
ruth said on 1/Nov/10
In a general sense from seeing her in videos, movies, etc., she appears extremely short... and I think shorter than 5'3". However, on another note, it's ridiculous that people use photos as evidence of height. Firstly, photos do not record accurate height comparison consistently, as you cannot see accuracy with the perspective and angle in most shots. Example, I found photos of her and Bernal when they were dating. Some photos make it appear that they are the same height and others show that he is quite a few inches taller, even from the same group of photos. Also, you are assuming the published heights of others in the photos are accurate. Most celebrities and models have inflated height stats because it's needed to appear more attractive in the industry. Most ppl in the industry are actually significantly shorter than what the general public believes. Bottom line: stop using photos as evidence. It just doesn't work.

Anonymous Rex, bravo! What is all this "short BUT beautiful" crap?! I have noticed over the years that the most beautiful are usually petite (under 5'4). Perhaps it has something to do with looking more feminine?

seriously! she can't be 5'3! I saw her in garden state, and she looked so petite! i would say 5'2
anonymous said on 17/Aug/07
To I'm what I am: "Natalie is not as short as she said (5'); she joked about her height." and you know that because...she told you?
I'm what I am said on 17/Jul/07
Yes, vandal, she's always looked tiny because her shoulders are small, her body is tiny and quite thin. But don't confuse between tiny and short. I know, the short people couldn't be too big and the tiny couldn't be too tall. However, Natalie is not as short as she said (5'); she joked about her height. Shakira's said that she's 4'11; I believe, she's honest, despite the fact that she's looked medium. Shakira's always looked muscular, strong and healthy; her body is a bit thick,( anyway, she is not fat at all and has a wonderful curve) so generally, she's looked average.
I agree with sb here; Natalie's 5'2. But 5'3 sounds "not fishy" to me.
vandal said on 25/Jun/07
5-3 is medium range. She's never looked medium
tria said on 23/Jun/07
no way.. I read somewhere that she's five two, its not hard to believe u know
Anonymous Rex said on 18/Jun/07
What does "short BUT beautiful" mean? Does that imply that an ugly tall girl is "tall BUT ugly"? I've met plenty of girls who are "tall AND ugly". Natalie is "short AND beautiful"
bam said on 17/Jun/07
i'm with anonomous. In the interest of accuracy, she should be downgraded
to 5'2. She is petite. I have a 5'3 friend, and she looks average in height
not short like portman regularly does. Glenn who saw her believes her listing is fishy.

thanks irshgrl.i saw her again last week alot.ignored me.papparazi was around.bjork was around alot too this week.havnt seen her in 10 years.only celeb i ever saw get a anxiety attack in the street in front of fans and mtv.she ran.i felt bad.i know what it can feel like.dont have the photo with.she threw a marker at a friend of mine 3 weeks ago here in nyc.i think she lives here.
Irshgrl500 said on 9/May/07
Hey Glenn, I love your photos! I know you're a solid 5'8" and you look like you've leaned in quite a bit for the photo with Nat. If she's got heels on, say 2", added to your "leaned" pose, I'd say she's 5'2" - 5'3". Anonymous submitted photos on 5/5/07 of Nat with 5'4" Bjork, both in heels. Bjork's heels appear to be lower than Nat's heels. Again, from these photos she appears to be 5'2"-5'3".
Andrea said on 7/May/07
Bjork's heels are clearly lower than Natalie's...and Nat still looks a bit smaller than her. I think 5'3 is right on the money.

Anonymous said on 30/Mar/07
I saw her today. There was a delay in the standard customer check in, so they moved us up into the first class check in so we wouldn't miss our flight to New York, and after about five minutes I realized that Natalie (plus three other people) was checking in right in front of me. She had these big boots on, and even then she was only 5'2.5", 5'3", so I figure that would make her around 5'1". You really should downgrade her Rob, there's no way that she's 5'3".

Amber said on 15/Mar/07
She's 5'2 or shorter. I met her last year in NY and she was at least 2 inches shorter than me and I'm almost 5'4. She's very skinny though, which could make her look longer in pictures, but in person, she's very tiny.

Yeah, maybe...but what do you think Rob?

In the pic Portman looks a little taller than Lucy, if you notice the shoulders do not lineup. You can't see Lucy's shoes though. I'm thinking she's about 5'2.75....What do you think Rob? Or she could indeed be 5'3"
said on 7/Mar/07
she's a few inches shorter than 5'5 Dustin Hoffman. I'd say she's about 5'2

She's no taller than 5'2--the proof is right here. She's the same height as the 5'2 Lucy Liu!
Look below on her website...the pic with Liu porves that natalie isn't over 5'2.

yeah shes definitely under 5'3.. shes VERY THIN making her look even taller then she is. she doesnt look even 5'2.. probably is 5'1-5'2

I doubt she is that short, I think 5'3" looks about right :)

She's 5'1-5'2, no taller. In this pic with Jamie Foxx (who's 5'9), she is about 5-6 inches shorter than him, wearing 3 inch heels. I did the math--she's about 5'1. She's also standing stick staight and he's slightly slouching.
anon said on 13/Feb/07
by the way, for the person comparing Portman to Olsen twins---they're not even 5 ft tall. Not even close. I'm 5 ft tall, seen them in real life, and they're 4'10" if they're lucky.

After seeing the pic with Gyllenhaal that I posted, I'm going with 5'1 max.
Glenn said on 28/Jan/07
I agree.5-3 sounds fishy.
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/07
She seems shorter than 5'3. 5'3 girls to me look nearly average in height and she looks short. 5'1 maybe 5'2. In the picture she looks 5'3 at the most if Glenn and her shoes have similar heels. If she does have any type of heel, she is shorter. No way does she look 5'5 as Alex said. If she has on the boots Anthony shows, then probably 5'1.
Anthony said on 21/Jan/07

In the photo below, where Glenn is approaching Nat, she looks to be wearing boots, can't see any heel though.
Alex said on 16/Jan/07
I've heard of 5'1-5'2 sightings of her though. I can see maybe 5'2 at the shortest but no less than that. 5'3 is possible too.
Glenn said on 15/Jan/07
Im bending alot.cant rember or notice footwear.5-3 is possible,I wouldve guessed shorter.
Alex said on 14/Jan/07
Glenn, was she wearing big heels in that picture with you? Because she looks around 5'5 with you. She could be the 5'3 she claims, 5'2 at the shortest though. What did she look to you?
Anthony said on 10/Dec/06
I've become a big Nat fan lately, and I went to one of her fanstie and was thumbing through photo galleries, and went to a section of photos of her at a basketball game, which is where you said you met her. I naturally stumbled across that picture as well as the one above.
Glenn said on 9/Dec/06
Thanks Anthony.you stumbled upon it by accident?

Well, whatever look it is, it's an awesome photo.

I meant fansite. Not sure if it actually has any connection with Nat. Either way, it's a great photo. I don't blame you if that's what you were thinking. I don't think anyone would.

Yes, the ground level is also a factor. My mistake.
Anthony said on 7/Nov/06
She's 5'3. Her and Scarlett are about the same height.
hilz said on 26/Oct/06
actually Hmmm, she would be around 17 or 18 and most girls I know don't grow after 16 or 14. It just seems very obvious that Natalie is 5'3" max. Why else would she call herself short?
Ally said on 19/Oct/06
All I know is that all of the paparazzi pics of her show her with her jeans "cut off" at the bottom. Sure sign of a shorty. I put her at 5', tops.
Hmmm said on 30/Sep/06
Hilz, Keira's comment was made in 2004 but the movie was released in 1999. So when Natalie made the movie, she was around 16 or 17.
hilz said on 10/Sep/06
The Keira Knightley quote from 2004 is not regarding Natalie's height when she was around 16 or 17 because Natalie was born in 1981. That would make her 23 at the time of Keira mentioning her at 5'3". There is no way that Natalie is taller than 5'3" or shorter than 5'1". I just can't see it.
Katie said on 4/Sep/06
Anonymous, are you the same person as the other one? In those pics with Dustin Hoffman, she looked 5'2, maybe 5'1. Her height seems really confusing.
Anonymous said on 4/Sep/06
About Keira Knightly's quote, I saw her (and a really good long look) in LA at the IVy and she is about 5'4" MAX. That explains why she would say Portman is 5'3". My best friend went to college with Natalie and Natalie herself would joke about being only 5 feet tall.
said on 31/Aug/06
Here an even better photo of her with Dustin Hoffman:
hilz said on 29/Aug/06
Judging by Anonymous's picture, I would not put Natalie as small as 5'1". I think she looks slightly over 5'2".
said on 25/Aug/06
She might be under 5'3". Here she is with Dustin Hoffman, both in tennis shoes. Dustin is one step in front of her, so she probably comes up to his eyebrow. If Hoffman is 5'5"/5'5.5", Portman would be 5'2"/5'2.5".
Lisa said on 2/Aug/06
I think Natalie Portman is definitely 5'3". She looks no shorter than that.
Sissi said on 31/Jul/06
I think Portman is between 5"3' and 5"4'. Just look at her in her latest movies "Garden State" and "Closer", she is just a little bit taller than Zac Barrf's(sp?) or Jude Law's shoulder.
Nicole said on 28/Jul/06
I don't get how some of you say that she "could NEVER" be 5'3. I mean I'm 5'3 and that's pretty short. When I've seen Natalie on the screen and all, I think she might be maybe an inch taller than me.. and recall people, inches aren't that big...
Glenn said on 27/Jul/06
Jake is one those rare guys that downplays his height.he looks 6-1,6-2 when I see him.he is 6-1.some idiots on this site suggested 5-9.go figure.
JoeMacho said on 26/Jul/06
i was watching the insider the other and they showed pictures of portman walking next to jake gyllenhaal on the beach, and he was like a foot taller(give or take). but i was really surprised to see her listed as this height, she looks like she's 5'1-5'2 tops. but i guess tv plays a trick on you. maybe gyllenhaal is taller?
trueheight said on 23/Jul/06
she's 5'3-5'4. I've seen all her films. she can't be shorter than 5'3, i mean look at that DeVito pic, she's almost a head taller. She's got low body fat unlike normal gals which makes her sometimes appear to have the body of a pre-pubescent boy

Met her at Harvard where she literally bumped into me, and was in a small bar for several hours where I could see her clearly, as well as a party on a different date. I didn't pull out a ruler but she looked very small. I'm 5'9" and have a 4'11" mom. I'd say 5'-5'1 is accurate, maybe 5'2". To the morons saying she's taller than 5'3".... what actress, actually, what normal person, would lie on their driver's license and say they are SHORTER than what they really are, unless they're a sasquatch chick or something?
amandaaa said on 8/Jul/06
Yeah she definitely looks 5'-5'1"
Editor Rob, where did you get the quote, "I'm a 5 foot miniature girl" - natalie, from??
Qiana, do you know where i can find the picture of her standing next to shakira?
Qiana said on 5/Jul/06
Omg.. there is no way she is 5'3"! I would 5'1 at the max or shorter. I'm 5'0" and believe me heels can do ALOT for you and I'm very tiny built like her. But most people believe that I'm 5'4, but I'm SO not. See? And people have PROVEN in pics that she is NOT 5'3 right here on this page. Julia Roberts is around 5'7" and so is my best friend. When I have heels on and stand next to her I'm by eye level. The same as Natalie and Juila. And in a picture.. I will try to find it she was standing next to Shakira. They were both wearing flats and they were the EXACT same height!! The truth is right there!!! Please down grade her atleast to 5'1".

she looks one foot shorter than Jake who is six feet - so she is probably five feet, maybe 5'1

Just saw a rerun of snl and she's definitely 5'1. About the same height as amy pohler and about 2 inches taller than rachel dratch in heels, plus i noticed she has excellent posture - she never slouches. It seems like she knows she's short, so therefore always standing straight. Plz downgrade her.

She may be 5'2 even though her license has said 5'3 it may be in shoes.

"I'm a 5 foot miniature girl" - natalie.
bella said on 30/Mar/06
I think 5'3 seems accurate. Plus, when she was 7 or 8 she made the choice of becoming a vegetarian, so not eating proteins like meat and stuff while you are growing, can definately take inches of your potential height. That is not meant as a negative comment aout vegetarians though! I think you should do what you believe in.
Jen said on 27/Mar/06
Natalie has to be more than 5'3! I read she was 5'4 and plus if you notice in Star Wars standing near hayden christensen she looks a half head shorter than him. so obviously she is not that small as people claim to think she is. i round her height off to about 5'4 -5'6! If anyone agrees let me know. Becuz think about it. Hayden is big 6'1 tall and natalie appears a half a head shorter than him so she obviously is up there in average height.
Anonymous said on 18/Mar/06
I think Natalie seems my height since I tend to look the same as her in photos with people who are similar heights as to the other actors next to her. And I'm just under 5'3" in the morning (159.5 cm), 5'2.25" (158 cm)in the evening. I have 5'3" on my license and tell people I'm 5'3" but I do realize that most of the day, I'm exactly 5'2.5". Portman doesn't seem smaller than 5'2" so I think she's 5'2.5" like I am most of the day and that 5'3" is her morning height.
trueheight said on 13/Mar/06
well, lets stick to the most incriminating pics: Garcia+Portman. I mean, Garcia couldn't even pass for 5'7 because of his dwarfish build(short arms), so its really suspect. Both in trainers as well

I first met portman in 1994 and she looked at me like I had 3 heads when I asked for photo op.other years just flat out ignored me.this was just plain sick luck as Im walking to the post office not even thinking of getting celebs,when I run into her coming out of a basketball game.she said aloud to the couple of auto dealers and photogs " I,ll do it as long as no one follows me" and the rest is history.none of my peers have it,and they were shocked.

5'3'' seems right... look up Natalie and Britney Spears on Getty Images. Portman seems only 1'' shorter than Spears.
