Comment on the Height of Salma Hayek

157cm morning. 156cm night. At general theory people don't start to loose height until their late 50s. Loosing height in 40s is rare but they happen due to extreme circumstances

I am 4'11". Thank God, (and I mean that literally), I seem taller. I always thought it was wired that I got a lot of attention from men. I think they feel like it makes them feel more protective. Like they like the feeling of having take care of me more because I am small.

@theblacklab: women actually lose more than men do, in fact quite considerably more. And it's not impossible to have shrunk a bit in the 40s, like 1cm or so.

I met her back in 1999 and there's no way she's 5'2! 5''0 or 5'1 max! Girl is short with a nice rack. She's very sweet too.

Salma has small bones. Her waist is so tiny; it must be like 18 inches in circumference. But her perfect curves belie that she is actually skinny and lithe.

Salma's proof that for women, height doesn't really matter that much... hot is hot, whether the gal's 5-2 or 6-2.

You go girl.

5ft 2 is nice height,but latina women are even smaller than uk women on whole average wise, they say uk average is 5ft4,but they dont ask every woman in the uk,and thne get average they do it on few tohusand,so never getting true average id say 5ft 4-5ft6 is as average as seeing 5ft to 5ft 3 ppl,in uk,
i think petite is best tbh, but im average and so become standard tall when wear 3inch heels,and want to be petite for once,but stooping looks stupid to lose 2inches, and its what your gentics are if your parents are above average gonna be taller we cant pick height,so just say that everyone can look nice at whatever height, i hate ppl are so rude on tall ppl,like they can do anything gnetic wise,and i think tall and slim looks striking as much as nice lookng smaller person, not one better than other.

I doubt if Salma would have shrunk yet, women don't really start to lose any height until they are way past the Menopause. I'm 52 and I'm still the same as I was at 22.

Salma is 46 years old now, and I think she would have shrunk a little (not a lot) since she was in her 20s or even early to mid 30s. I think she is 5'1" now, but 5'1.5" up until about 40 years old, women generally lose about 1-1.5" of their original height due to ageing, whilst men generally lose 2".

Some girls are hot tall or short. It doesn't matter. There are a lot of hot tall girls. I will just name a few taller than 5 foot 7: blake lively, charlize theron, mia sorvino, cindy crawford, elle macpherson, heidi klum, adrianna lima, katherine heigl, jaime king, maria sharapova and so many others. There are also hot short girls under 160cm like natalie portman, kat dennings, salma hayek, kristen bell, hayden pannetiere, alyssa milano and so many others. Salma is a solid 156cm.

Norm I have to agree with Dan, Salma is kinda butch! She has a very strong jaw line for a woman and her shoulders are also very manly. She's shaped very nicely but there's no getting away from it, she looks kinda butch, especially when she ties her hair back. Just watch the episode of Ugly Betty where she gets stuck in a lift with Daniel Meade. You'll see what I mean!!

I agree. Cruz is about 1-1.5 inches taller than shoudn't she be listed at 5 ft 2.5 to 5 ft 3?? i think so. i also think Salma is shorter than 5'1.5...i think she's more like 5'0.5 - 5 ft 1.
azz said on 29/Jun/07

I was just watching 'the most sexy brunettes', she was on number 6, and they said that she wasn't even 5 ft..well I don't believe she's that small, 5 ft 1/5 ft 2 might be correct.

hey Anonymous...
I always wonder who are you....??? your beginning to piss me off... i mean sometimes your a woman somtimes a man... sometimes your 5 ft...sometimes 5 ft 5.. and other times your like 6 ft... WHO ARE YOU? WHAT IS YOUR HEIGHT?
Norm said on 22/May/07
Salma butch?
What are you crazy? Do you know the meaning of Butch?
She's gorgeous. No where near butch!
Dan said on 14/Apr/07
Maybe she look shorter because she's butch....:)
Now she's pregnant and with a man on her side to stop the rumors:)
Now a days to make it in showbiz in America women has to become for at least some time dykes :)

So beautiful! Yes, she is petite with a capital "P", probably 61 inches. Watched "Once Upon A Time In Mexico" last week and was in awe of Ms. Hayek (oh, and I'm a heterosexual woman... I think.). For some reason the really tiny, dark-eyed ladies are very hot, Salma, Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman, etc. And I'm not just saying that because I'm drunk right now. In vino veritas....

Yesterday I caught "Dogma" on TV, although I had seen it like million times before - but it's always hillarious. Anyway in some scenes with Jason Lee and Ben Affleck Salma was clearly below their shoulders. Tall guys they are, but still... I believe that Rob's listing is correct, or she might even be 5'1". But that's not too short for a Mexican lady.

I was an extra in one of her movies. I'm 5'1". Her heels were atleast 1 inch higher than mine, and she was still no more than 1 inch taller than me. So I would say 5'1".
claudia said on 5/Jan/07
I would definitely say that Salma Hayek is 60 inches tall [5 feet] because penelope cruz is taller by 3 to 4 inches. It has been stated before, she is 5 feet tall.
Bluewin said on 5/Jun/06
She's shorter than Penelope Cruiz,who is 5'2 according to what she said to a poster here,so Salma is 5 or max 5'1.
Anonymous said on 21/May/06
ive seen her and i know her. close friends. she is exactly 5 feet 2 and 3 cms
ceceblue said on 6/Mar/06
No more than 5'1. I am 5' and she looks just a tad bit taller than I am
Anonymous said on 11/Jan/06
I'm 5'1" and I always add an inch to my height. I'm sure Hayek (and everyone else, really) also adds an inch or two to her height.
Cady said on 3/Dec/05
She looks about the same height as Penelope Cruz i think she might be taller as Cruz is listed at 5"4.5

I saw Hayek in the summer of 2000 in Madrid, while she was filming "La Gran Vida". She is short, but not so short as some think, my ex-girlfriend who was 5 ft 5 was standing next to her , she was woring sneakers, and Hayek wored 4 inch Heels (wich you see in the movie), they were about the same height. 157 cm is correct, maybe 156 cm.
KC said on 10/Jul/05
she wears unusually huge heels in "After the Sunset" so Brosnan won't dwarf her

[Editor Rob: Director of Photography actually done a good job with the movie. He managed to make Salma appear taller in many of the scenes!]
Shortgurl said on 23/Jun/05
guYs! she is no way 5 ft way! she is taller with a couple of inches..i know how 5ft looks like cos i am 5ft and im no way as the same height as Hayek!
Grace said on 19/Jun/05
They always say 5'2" - my ass. I'm telling you these women are MOST LIKELY 5'0" - 5'1" tops!!!
gijane71 said on 13/Jun/05
correction - 5' even - if she is lucky - look at pics of her in heels with ex flame Josh Lucas - SH is one tiny lady - friend saw her at the beach a while back when she was dating Lucas - she asked if she could take a picture with Hayek - when Hayek saw how tall my friend was (5'10.5) Hayek declined and very quickly left .......
