Angelina Jolie is a successful movie star winning both Academy and Golden Globe awards for her strong acting performances. Starting her career as a model, she's clearly not a short woman, regularly appearing over average height, and sometimes tall in movies and at film premieres.
Yet, she frequently wears high heels, has a slender, slim frame and has longer than average legs, all of which give the illusion of a taller height. Also, at times she can look surprisingly average in height when next to other celebs, which begs the question of how tall exactly is she?
Well, let's investigate her height listings and also how her height stacks up compared to other celebs to find out how tall she really is!
What's Her Real Height?
After investigating Angelina's height by looking into her height listings and comparing her next to other celebs, I conclude that she wakes up in the morning comfortably at 5'6.75", falling down to 5'6.5" throughout the majority of the day, and to nearer 5'6" at night.
Therefore, I believe she stands at 5'6.5" (168.9 cm) for the majority of the day.
I remember reading an article interview where she claimed to be 5'7" tall. However, I can't find this article, and aside from this, as far as I'm aware there are no height claims.
I can't quite make out the height on this card, it looks like 5'1" to me (impossible)! But take a look for yourself.
- Multiple sources list her between 5'6"-5'7", such as her Google listing of 5'6.5".
- Her Madame Tussauds wax figure stands at 5'7" tall, which may or may have not been measured accurately.
Compared to Other Celebs
Angelina has a very slim frame that can make her appear taller than she really is. This is why it is good to see her standing next to other celebs for better comparison. Her legs also appear to be longer in relation to her torso, also giving the illusion of being taller.
Angelina is often referred to as "statuesque", meaning attractively tall and dignified. However, she is almost always in large heels, and this has something to do with this.
Combining her slim figure with heels, she more often than not looks taller than she really is.
Brad Pitt 5'10.75" (179.7cm)
Brad Pitt is Angelina's Ex-Husband (2014-2019), who also starred in the film Mr and Mrs Smith (2005) so there is a plentiful amount of pics of them together. In many instances, Brad tends to wear thicker footwear, which makes things more difficult to judge.
Yet, when standing next to each other and Brad is wearing regular 1 inch footwear, Angelina regularly appears between 3 and 4 inches shorter than him, depending on her choice of heels, indicative of a woman comfortably over 5'6" tall. Also, when both wear flattish shoes, there is a consistent 4-4.5 inch difference in height.
So when standing with Brad, this puts Angelina's height between 5'6.25-5'6.75".
Colin Farrell 5'10" (177.8 cm)
Starring together in 4 films, including Alexander (2004) there are many pics of them together. Angelina is often wearing 4 inch heels, and Colin wearing boots providing 1.5 inches of height, such as at the UK Premiere Of Alexander, and she consistently appears around 2.25-2.5 inches shorter than him.
So when next to Colin, Angelina appears to be between 5'6.25"-5'6.5" tall.
Johnny Depp 5'9" (175.3 cm)
Starring together in the film The Tourist (2010), wearing 3 inch heels and Johnny Depp is in regular 1 inch shoes, she appears around 1 inch shorter than Depp throughout the movie. At the premiere in Berlin, again wearing 4 inch heels and Depp wearing thicker 1.5 inch boots, she looks 1.5 inches shorter.
So when next to Depp, she generally comes across as a 5'6"- 5'6.5" woman.
So when standing next to celebs, Angelina's height could be anywhere from 5'6-5'6.75" tall.
