Smaller than she looks. said on 16/Jun/17
Saw Zooey in L.A a few months ago - she was tiny. I'd say 5'3 max.
Also, didn't they saw in New girl that she was 5'4? So she's at least that small.

In IMDB says that that she is 5ft 6in, but she is shorter than i expected, there's no way that she can have that size, to be honest she is no more than 5ft 4 to 5ft 4.5 max in flats, Martin Freeman is 5ft 6in max, he is taller than her definitely, i saw them in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, I think that she need a downsize definitely

No more then 5'4". Needs a downsize

I enjoyed Zooey's performance in 'The Happening' - a truly original idea from the mind of M.Night Shyamalan. I thought she was about that height as well, or perhaps half an inch taller at 5ft5.5.
Who can forget eyes as blue as that? My boyfriend didn't like them and we almost had a ding-dong about it!

She is 5'6. You can see in one episode of new girl when Jess stands next to the girl nick is with (the red head he met in college) and she is at least 2 inches taller then her and the red head chick was 5'4, and they were both in their pajamas and not wearing shoes. Also Ally the police officer, she is 5'4 and Zooey is taller then her. And Hannah Simone is 5'7, one inch taller then Jess. And she would have a huge diffrence between her and her sister because Emily is 5'9.

she looks a little above average on screen. i thought she was able to hold her own in yes man next to jim carrey. I thought she looked more like 5'6, wouldnt have guessed she's 5'5 as listed here. I also don't think she's 5'4 as some people say here.

Looked 2.5-3 inches shorter than Mark Wahlberg in The Happening and he had thicker footwear.

she is 5'6".
Joe said on 25/Dec/14
wow, actually surprised by this. Always thought she looked like a small, petite thing.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Dec/14
Lucky she reached this height, her mother I doubt is even 5 ft flat.
Sam said on 4/Dec/14
Maybe she really is more 5'4.5". There's a lot of inches between her and her sister Emily.
LNguyen said on 3/Dec/14
Weak 5' 5" / 164 cm. And I agree with @linke, Rob, you should add the other guys from New Girl.
linke said on 9/Nov/14
Rob, would you consider adding the guys from new girl?
marcus said on 31/Oct/14
in 500 days of summer they said she was 5'5...i think it's about right

Would you consider a page for Jake Johnson and/or DamonWayans Jr? Between New Girl and their new movie, they'll probably become more notable.
K said on 13/Apr/14
I just caught a scene of her standing next to Taylor Swift and she barely reached above her shoulder. She looked like she was closer to 5'3.
said on 26/Mar/14
It seems like the consensus is moving to 5'4". Would you consider a downgrade, Rob?
[Editor Rob: I'm not as sure on that]

My sister met Zooey last summer and had a picture taken with her. Both her and my sister were wearing flats and were roughly the same height. My sister was measured at her high school grad the year before at 5'2 without shoes. Zooey cannot be any taller than 5'3 and a half MAX (but I'd wager 5'3 on the dot).They had it close to right on the show (5'4). I'll see if I can get a copy of the picture for proof.

@James: Johnson, Greenfield and Morris might actually all be more or less 175 cm. Not sure Jake is the tallest though. I'd say neither is under 174 cm or over 176 cm.
James said on 20/Nov/13
Jake Johnson who plays Nick in New Girl barley looks 5ft 9 next to 5ft 7 Olivia Wilde in Drinking Buddies. At best he is 175 flat which makes Greenfield 173 and Morris 174/5. Also means Deschanel is no more than 5ft 4 and Hannah Simmone 5ft 5/6
Hola said on 17/Nov/13
This can't be right, she used to date Jason Schwartzmann and she never appeared his height when in flat s.
I think 5'4 is much more reasonable.
OC said on 23/Oct/13
Obviously can't lend too much weight to this, but Nick's character says on New Girl, "Jess you're 5'4"."
Sean said on 22/Oct/13
Tonight's episode of New Girl had Jake Johnson saying "...you're also 5'4"!" to Deschanel's character.

Eric said on 9/Oct/13
I'm waiting for the guys from New Girl to be listed...
cole said on 28/Sep/13
@linke: None of the New Girl guys would measure 5'10. Jake Johnson, Lorne Morris and Max Greenfield look about the same, rougly 5'9. Greenfield barely edges them both on the show most of the time, and he looked at least 3 inches shorter than Chris Pine in a pic I posted on the height request page. The tallest of them would be 5'9.5 at the absolute most.
Zooey can look in the 163-165 cm range.
_ said on 22/Aug/13
she is 5'6
linke said on 7/Aug/13
Greenfield looks 5'9ish, the other 2 are 5'10
said on 7/Aug/13
None of the main New Girl guys are over average and are all similar in height. 5'9" range maybe. Here, Max Greenfield claims Taylor Swift is "about 6'2"" (in heels, I think)...LOL, "She totally exposed my height, which was the only off-putting thing about her".
Seba said on 5/Aug/13
What about the guys from New Girl? When are they gonna be on the list?
James said on 31/Jul/13
5ft 5 seems bang on, while Hannah simone seems no more than 5ft 6. What is the general concensus for the heights of her co-stars Greenfield, Johnson and Morris?
Deschanel - 5ft 5
Simone - 5ft 6
Greenfield - 5ft 9
Morris - 5ft 9.5
Johnson - 5ft 10.5
That would be my guess.
Sean said on 15/Jul/13
I agree on the New Girl actors pages. They all seem within about an inch of each other, and slightly edged out Dermot Mulroney, probably not over 5'10.
Ahboh said on 19/Jun/13
Really?Those seem like 4 inches heels
said on 11/Jun/13
How tall do you think she is in the above photo, Rob?
[Editor Rob: probably measure close to 5ft 8 mark ]
Mike said on 6/Jun/13
165 cm of perfection ♥
Sooey said on 3/Jun/13
165cm is indeed accurate.
mat said on 31/May/13
yeah..could you make pages for the new girl guys?
megamind said on 27/Feb/13
Contrasting Joseph in 500 days of summer.If Joseph is 177cm，then she is 168cm at least.Meanwhile,if she is legit 165cm,Joseph is more likely 174cm max instead of 177cm. However,I always do not believe that Joseph is 177cm in any case.
Lazybear said on 8/Feb/13
Can you make pages for the male stars of new girl?
Joey said on 4/Feb/13
in her show she looks kinda really short thought she was 160cm at first....id say 163-164cm... 165cm is possible but she doesnt look it
Mikey T said on 27/Jan/13
5'5" looks right
Balrog said on 11/Jan/13
Alice5-2 said on 6/Jan/13
In a scene of her movie 500 days of summer,her height is described as 5'5.
Chiara said on 30/Oct/12
She has long legs? I´d say they are average. Also, she has pretty thick thighs. But i don´t think they make her appear shorter.
Sean said on 21/Sep/12
Natascha, Selena is wearing really high heels in that picture, while Zooey's footwear is blocked from view. Selena probably has a footwear advantage here.
said on 27/Jul/12
here is pictures of selena gomez and zooey.. it seems as if gomez is actually taller than zooey.. either selena needs a huge upgrade og zooey a downgrade. I'd personally say that selena probably stands at 5,6 and zooey at 5,4
I said on 26/Jul/12
She looks taller, I'd say 5'6".
Lenad is sexy said on 23/Dec/11
i'd say 5'5-ish
Silent d said on 2/Dec/11
She looked tall on ellen and she has long legs. She looks really pretty. She had heels on so 5 foot 5 seems right. Her sister is much taller i think. At least 5 foot 8.
5'7 said on 8/Nov/11
I'd say 5'6, she looks taller than 5'5
me said on 12/Jul/11
She is 164 cm
ai said on 4/Jun/11
At most 5'6 at least 5'5, she stood taller than Jennifer Aniston (5'4.5) and shorter than Lou Pucci and Mark Walberg (5'7)
thebad7 said on 23/May/11
Talented actress, but much like Vincent Gallo, I prefer her work in music. Just saw her in an awesome early '60s retro music video for She & Him's "Don't Look Back." I was surprised at how short she was, especially when I think of how tall her sister Emily is. 5'5" I could buy, but I'm thinking that 5'4" is more likely. In any event, she's a very attractive woman--She & Him has a great vintage pop sound.
shannon said on 21/May/11
i have stood next to her and she was the about the same height as me between 5ft 4 or 5ft 5
jtm said on 9/Mar/11
5'6 is hilarious.
Chloe said on 7/Mar/11
I live in Seattle and have stood next to her twice (grocery store/waiting for a table at a restaurant). I am 5 ft 6 in and she seemed about 2 inches shorter than me. She is definitely not 5'6 like "500 Days of Summer" claims. I think 5'3 or 5'4 seems about right.
Rox said on 26/Feb/11
5'5'' seems right I've met her a couple of times; she's a nice down to earth chick in person.
hey i know that guy said on 18/Feb/11
definitely shorter than her sister -- 5 ft 5 seems right. in person she is very attractive, she looks good on camera too. imo, better looking than her sister.
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/11
She's smaller than this, 5'4 my guess. Mark Whalberg is clearly taller than her.
yup said on 25/Dec/10
well, at most i belive she stands at 5'6, or at least 5'5
Adam said on 10/Dec/10
I've seen her in concert twice. She seems very petite. If I had to guess I'd say 5'3" - 5'4"
wow said on 3/Jul/07
not i definitly think she is taller. from pictures she looks more 5'6 or 5'7
Liv said on 10/Mar/06
I have met Zooey in LA last year and can confirm she was a little smaller than this about 5'4.4" or 5'5" exactly
