About Joan Jett's Real Height

Joan Jett is universally thought to be 5 feet 5 inches tall -- at least it seems so because of her height listings on the internet.

In an interview with The Guardian, Joan was asked this question:

What do you most dislike about your appearance?

Joan answered:

I’m too short: I’m 5 feet 3½ inches. I have shrunk. I used to be 5 feet 5½ inches.

Her answer is clear, concise, and precise, and from what little we have Joan we think she is just as tall as she claims to be.

Height loss happens with aging, mainly due to the compression and dehydration of the spinal discs. Taller people are more prone to it due to having a longer spine, but sometimes it happens to shorter ones too.

The real height of Joan Jett is

5 ft 3½ in (161 cm)

Height in her prime was

5 ft 5½ in (166 cm)

Just be yourself and everything will fall in line, the way it's supposed to be. If you're yourself, that's the best thing you can do, because you can never go "damn if I'd only been myself." Live an authentic life and you don't have to worry about your reputation.
