There are a lot of conflicting opinions about Susan's height here on her page. I have taken her for about 5ft6 ever since I saw her in 'Thelma and Louise' and that's only because that was how she was described by the police.
That was years ago now, so I am assuming Susan has lost a bit of height. I will agree with the 5ft5 as written here and also the 5ft6 and a quarter for her optimum height.
I can see how she can be taken for 5ft7. She was very skinny in 'The Witches of Eastwick' and we all know the way that can affect how tall we look!
I just observed an interesting comment from October 16th last year by Bobbie09 who says she's the same 5ft4 now at the age of 60 as she has been throughout her life! I think she is a lucky exception, and that it is more usual to experience some shrinkage the older we get!
Bobbie09 - I wish I knew how you've managed that, but good luck to you! 😮👌
Editor Rob: I think she does look to be shorter in last 5 years than 30 years ago. I'm sure in the late 90's she was even being called 5ft 8 in some places.

Her peak height was 5'6". She was 5'5" at around 2005. She is probably no more than 5'4" today.

I'm late in the conversation. My family and I just finished watching the the movie "The big wedding". I was curious to see how tall Diane Keaton is and found out she's 5.7. In the movie she clearly looks several inches taller than Susan Sarandon.
In fact in this movie, side by side with the other actors she seems smaller than most.
I went then and checked all their heights and discovered that she is presented as 5.7. Really surprised as few years ago I remembered reading she was 5'2".
It's not a life or death controversy or makes a big difference to me. Filming, any difference in height can be fixed.
It's a little annoying. Don't know why.
Someone mentioned here that at her age she might have "dropped" in height. Don't think so. All my life I've been 5'4" and now at 60 I'm still 5'4". Don't ask the weight, that went off the charts. Lol.
I love Ms Sarandon, her acting, her attitude and her beauty.

Could look near 5 ft 7 peak but slender frame and heels can account for that, I'd say 5'6.25 is probably very honest as it's the minimum I'd have thought.
Arch Stanton said on 17/May/16
Taller than 5 ft 5 peak, I thought she could look tallish range peak and wasn't too dwarfed by Tim Robbins and Kevin Costner.

I've read that she's 5'2" - one of those celebs who are shorter than you think. "Petite and busty" was how one journalist described her.

Thought she was shorter

Looks 5'5-5'6". Not my type usually but I find her very sexy.

Back in the 1980s when she was appearing in Extremities in NYC, I passed her on the street. She was signing autographs and chatting with some fans. I am just under 5'6", never wear heels, and she was a couple of inches shorter than me--and very small-boned. She ahd a beautiful smile.

She doesn't look nearly 10 inches shorter than Robbins in Bull Durham. Maybe she really is 5'7.5"

I had a photo taken with Susan last year and we both had on flat shoes and were exactly the same height - I am 5'7 and 3/4 - i was quite surprised as i had always read she was 5'4.

she wasn't shorter than 170cm that's for sure and she never looked short to me.
but considering her age today a loss off height is totally normal it shows in this picture.
165-166cm is correct by looking at that picture with Glenn, but i am positive she was 170cm when younger.

Celebrities usually exaggerate their height by an inch or two. Either way she's clearly shorter than she once said. But I still like her, great actress.

I worked on a film that she was producing and acting in. I would say that she is around 5'6 although it was around 9 years ago. And she was thinner at the time. In this photo she looks shorter because she put on some weight.
Kathryn said on 20/Apr/07
wow....never thought she would be 5'5'' corner. on this pic she looks even almost 10 cm smaller than Glenn. but her peak height was definitely 5'7.5''. on the Internet Movie Database it still says she is that height. on this pic she looks 5'4.5'' (163 cm)

yeah for some reason I also thought she was tall...5'8 or just below...she only looked a tiny bit shorter than Julia Roberts whom my sister thought was 6' a loooooong while back! boy how wrong she was!!!
Anthony said on 19/Jan/07
I highly doubt she was ever 5'7. In "Rocky Horror", I thought she looked 5'6 max with 6'4 Bostwick.
Glitter1 said on 18/Jan/07
she is 5'7. said so in thelma and louise. appears it. maybe, with age, she is bnow 5'6. but her peak was def. 5'7
Anthony said on 30/Oct/06
I myself used to think she was 5'8, then when I might her, she appeared 5'4-5'5 in a pair of very flat slip-on shoes with thin soles.

Yeah, saw her in the full Wicked Queen getup this summer. Bizarre. I always thought she was 5'7"-5'8", but she looked 5'5" before me eyes. Here, she looks 5'3", 5'4" tops.
Maybe she cultivated an extra inch or two via The Method?
Franco said on 20/Oct/06
agreed on 5'5.
Anthony said on 15/Sep/06
I agree with Glenn, 5'5 is what I saw for her as well.
Glenn said on 4/Sep/06
I thought she was tall.seemed 5-5 tops,maybe smaller.met her 13 and 16 years ago as well.obviously I dont pay attention to womens height much.
Editor Rob said on 4/Sep/06
Here is Glenn's picture of him and Susan.
Anthony said on 30/Aug/06
Sarandon is not 5'7.5. Having met her she is definitely just the height Rob lists her at, 5'5.5. She was a little taller than my friend Hannah (as I said below she is 5'6 now but considering this was a year ago she may have been 5'4 or 5'5). Shame I couldn't get a pic.
Caterina said on 19/Jun/06
She's still listed as 5 foot 7.5 inches officially - just a lot of her pictures make her look like Gulliver because she's standing next to man giant Tim Robbins...
said on 25/May/06
I'm going with 5'4". 5'5" maximum.
[Editor Rob: actually in the past she has also been described 5ft 6]
Anthony said on 15/May/06
I met Sarandon. She came to my school to see our annual June Play. She was wearing flat shoes. She took a picture with my friend Hannah, who's 5'6, and they both looked about the same height. She is, by the way, a very friendly and curteous person.
Flavius said on 12/Apr/06
She's clearly shorter now, she's a certain age... in the latest movie she's walking beside Penelope Cruz in heels, and Penelope clearly towers over her!
Mario said on 9/Jan/06
In Thelma and Louise she still looked 5 ft 7.5. Nowedays she looks to me 167/ 168 cm.
