About Jennifer Lopez's Real Height

So how tall is Jennifer Lopez exactly? Well, she claims to be 5'6" tall but if you look at her carefully she seems to be a bit shorter than that -- especially if you compare her to people like Venessa Hudgens (5'1"), Jennifer Aniston (5'5"), and Ellen DeGeneres (5'7"). Though admittedly comparing their height isn't an easy task because you have to add or discount their heels' height as well.

Celebrities usually don't care about their heights that much and most of the time they measure their height with shoes still on, so they come out taller than they really are -- perhaps that's the case with Ms. Lopez as well.

 In short, Jennifer Lopez looks nearly a foot shorter than her 6'2½" tall boyfriend Ben Affleck.

The real height of Jennifer Lopez is

5'4½" or 164 cm

"When something bad happens is when you really learn. It causes self-examination, it causes you to take a look at yourself. You naturally start analyzing. It's not that you're wrong; it's that sometimes you just need to make adjustments. Change your way of thinking, change your way of doing, change your way of choosing."
