About Ellen DeGeneres' Real Height

Ellen DeGeneres could be said to have a good height -- over average certainly, but still not too tall. She once claimed to be in her own words: "I'm 5feet 7 and a half."

After looking at Ellen and comparing her to Angelina Jolie (5'6"), Tom Holland (5'7"), Zac Efron (5'8"), Niall Horan (5'8"), and many other celebrities -- there is no lack with Ellen, we think that she did look around 5'7" in her prime -- she gives the impression of a tall woman with long legs after all.

But age seems to have caught up with her too (still looking good at nearly mid-sixties though), and now she looks a bit shorter -- closer in height to her wife Portia de Rossi who is around five feet six inches tall.

The real height of Ellen DeGeneres is

5'6" or 167.5 cm

Height in her prime was 5'7¼" or 171 cm
