Charlize Theron Height - How Tall is She Really?

"I don't think you can create anything interesting from a comfort zone. You have to work from a place of fear and failure."

~ Charlize Theron

South African actress from movies like Monster, Prometheus, Snow White, and the Huntsman, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Atomic Blonde - Charlize Theron is one of the most “serious” actresses of Hollywood – which basically means all her movies have been at least critically hit (many commercial hits on her record too) and her performance praised by everyone. 

In the movie Monster, she showed her true acting power. She impressed the greatest movie critic of all time, Roger Ebert, so much, that he said that it was the greatest acting performance he had ever seen.

Where height is concerned, Charlize Theron is also one of the tallest actresses in Hollywood, along with Gwyneth Paltrow (5'9") and Nicole Kidman (5'10.5"). She has said in the past that she is somewhere between 5’9” to 5’10”. 

After looking carefully at her and comparing her to celebrities like Brad Pitt (5'11"), Vin Diesel (5'11.5"), Chris Hemsworth (6'3"), and some others, we think she is actually closer to 5’10” - which is a pleasant surprise because most celebrities are usually shorter than claim to be.

The real height of Charlize Theron is

5’10” or 178 cm
