We’re excited to feature the best outfits and shoes worn by Jennifer Lynn Lopez, an American singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, and producer.

Is Jennifer Lopez short?

No, she’s not. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the average height for adult women in the United States is about 5 feet 4 inches (162.1 cm). She wears a shoe size 8 (US).

This means that Jennifer Lopez’s height of 5 feet 4 ½ inches (163.8 cm) is slightly above average compared to the average height of American women.

However, she has claimed to be even taller in interviews. “I’m 5′ 6″ and I weigh 120 pounds so I’m not thin, but I think that’s why women identify with me and I’m liked by men. I’m just a normal person,” Lopez told Sunday Mirror in an interview.

“I’m not a size 0 or 2. I’m not 6-feet-tall like a lot of the models that come around, and I’m like, ‘Wow, I’m really short compared to models!’,” she admitted in an interview with Vogue magazine. “I’m just a regular woman. I wear a size 6. You know, when I eat a little too much over the holidays, maybe a size 8. When I’m in shape, maybe a size 4.”

Jennifer Lopez may be happy with her height, but she’s not one to shy away from wearing heels to add a little extra boost.

The superstar has a collection of high heels that would make any fashion lover jealous, and she’s even shared some of her tips for wearing them comfortably over the years.

In a 2017 interview with Vogue, Lopez advised, “Try to find shoes with a little bit of a platform, even if it’s hidden. It makes a huge difference.”

She also suggested practicing walking in heels at home to improve posture and distribute weight more evenly, which can reduce the pressure on the arches of the feet and prevent pain. “By wearing heels frequently, you figure out how to distribute your weight and posture so that all the pressure isn’t only on the arches of your feet, which is what usually causes pain,” she explained.

Reflections on Self-Love and Relationships – Jennifer Lopez

“I don’t regret what I’ve been through. I’ve had ups and downs, super highs and some really low lows. I’ve been so blessed that I could never say, ‘I wish this didn’t happen.’ It’s part of who I am. There’s nothing in my life that’s so ugh.” – Jennifer Lopez

“Beauty is only skin deep. I think what’s really important is finding a balance of mind, body, and spirit.” – Jennifer Lopez

“Women should never go without earrings. Passing on them is an opportunity missed.” – Jennifer Lopez

“Some people are naturally thin, and some are heavier. There is a lot of focus on it, and it can be a lot of pressure for people. But honestly, I think as long as someone is healthy, that is most important.” – Jennifer Lopez

“If you kiss on the first date and it’s not right, then there will be no second date. Sometimes it’s better to hold out and not kiss for a long time. I am a strong believer in kissing being very intimate, and the minute you kiss, the floodgates open for everything else.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I came from the Bronx and a certain background. I worked really hard. I kept my focus on the right things.” – Jennifer Lopez

“People equate sexy with promiscuous. They think that because I’m shaped this way, I must be scandalous – like running around and bringing men into my hotel room. But it’s just the opposite.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I seriously feel like the best days are ahead, and I like the idea of getting to do everything I did before but with more knowledge, experience, and street smarts. There’s a certain love, appreciation, and gratitude that you have at 40 that you don’t have when you’re younger, and it makes every accomplishment feel so much better.” – Jennifer Lopez

“When I am wrong, I will learn the lesson and move on to face other challenges. For me, that’s what creating your own life is. Doing your best work while being your best self.” – Jennifer Lopez

“The bear is what we all wrestle with. Everybody has their bear in life. It’s about conquering that bear and letting him go.” – Jennifer Lopez

“When I was young, I was just about hard work. But as I got older, I did experience anxiety, doubt, judgment, and it’s so easy to lose yourself for a second.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I think if you’re in a committed relationship, unless you have some sort of an understanding, monogamy is something that should exist.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I’d be stupid not to take into consideration that there are certain things people will not consider me for because my name is Lopez. And I know I can do any kind of role. I don’t want anybody to say, ‘Oh, she can’t pull this off.’ So those are barriers that you have to overcome.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I look to women who epitomize old Hollywood glamour, like Rita Hayworth.” – Jennifer Lopez

“You can’t take life for granted.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I can only speak for myself, and hope people hear my words and see me on television speaking for myself. And, hopefully, they’ll be able to make their own judgment. And at the end of the day, I just want my work to speak for itself.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I know that being seen as a role model means taking responsibility for all my actions. I am human, and of course, sometimes I make mistakes. But I promise that when I fall, I get back up.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I remember when I was 33 or 34, it was devastating because I realized I wasn’t a kid anymore. The great thing about 40 was that I really felt like I had life experience and knew what I was doing now.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I have to work, for my soul.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated. I bring a lot to the table. I’m not talking about material things but what I have to offer as a person – love and loyalty and all the things that make a good relationship.” – Jennifer Lopez

“You mirror what the world mirrors to you.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I have the stardom glow.” – Jennifer Lopez

“My parents wanted me to be a lawyer. But I don’t think I would have been very happy. I’d be in front of the jury singing.” – Jennifer Lopez

“It’s a real roller-coaster ride if you’re lucky to have longevity in this business – you have to be able to ride those waves.” – Jennifer Lopez

“Once you have a lot of success, you become a target in many ways.” – Jennifer Lopez

“By nature, I am not tough, believe it or not.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I could serve coffee using my rear as a ledge.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I don’t get anything for free. I pay for all my beauty treatments.” – Jennifer Lopez

“The bottom line is that musicians love to make music and always will.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I just knew that was what I wanted to do. I was going to perform as a singer; I was going to perform as a dancer, and I was, you know, going to do movies and be an actress. I was going to do it or die trying. That’s what my life was.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I am positive – determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I judge people on how they smell, not how they look.” – Jennifer Lopez

“A romantic comedy has to be funny and make you think about life; but the obstacle that has to be overcome is key.” – Jennifer Lopez

“So I sat down with him and portrayed more the side of the character he needed to see. Which is what I do when I go in for an interview for a part I like. As much as you think you’re dealing with creative people, they see you for what your image is out there.” – Jennifer Lopez

“And I love the idea of spending the whole day in bed with my lover.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I was into sports and dancing. I ran track. I have a lot of stamina.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I was always a singer and a dancer, and I always wanted to be an actress. For me, it’s all just one thing.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I am a lover. And with my kids, I am even softer. I realize with my son, I have to sometimes be tough, especially now when he’s pushing boundaries. With my daughter, I can get a little stern with her and she pretty much will listen.” – Jennifer Lopez

“You get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them.” – Jennifer Lopez

“Doubt is a killer. You just have to know who you are and what you stand for.” – Jennifer Lopez

“You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be okay on your own before you can be okay with somebody else.” – Jennifer Lopez

“You’ve gotta do things that make you happy. As women, we tend to give away a lot. We take care of a lot of people, and we can’t forget to take care of ourselves.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I’m a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I think a lot about teaching my kids to work hard.” – Jennifer Lopez

“It’s a shame to call somebody a ‘diva’ simply because they work harder than everybody else.” – Jennifer Lopez

“If you don’t love yourself, you can’t love anybody else. And I think as women we really forget that.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I like to maintain a certain sense of fantasy. At home, do I have the full hair and makeup? No. But I might have the nice dress on.” – Jennifer Lopez

“Being an artist doesn’t start because you’re 21, and it doesn’t end because you’re 51. You are who you are until the day you die.” – Jennifer Lopez

“In Hollywood, she’s revered, she gets nominated for Oscars, but I’ve never heard anyone in the public or among my friends say, ‘Oh, I love Winona Ryder.'” – Jennifer Lopez

“You know, maybe I was just born in the wrong time, but I love all things romantic. Puffy understands that. For my last birthday, he covered my hotel room floor with rose petals and had flowers and candles all over the room.” – Jennifer Lopez

“Oh my God, my girlfriends are everything to me. They celebrate with you, they cry with you, they hold you when you need to be held. They laugh with you. They’re mean with you! They’re always there, and it’s just a priceless thing to have.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I grew up in the Bronx where you would stay up late with your girlfriends, just being silly in our bedrooms, whatever. And I was always the clown.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I watched my parents. My dad worked nights, and I was aware of how much he was doing for us. My mom was a Tupperware lady and also worked at the school. I always felt that I couldn’t let them down. And I had a natural discipline from early on. I was always training for something.” – Jennifer Lopez

“The biggest insecurity I had was my singing. Even though I had sold 70 million records, there was this feeling like, I’m not good at this.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I’ve always had a huge fear of dying or becoming ill. The thing I’m most afraid of, though, is being alone, which I think a lot of performers fear. It’s why we seek the limelight – so we’re not alone, we’re adored. We’re loved, so people want to be around us. The fear of being alone drives my life.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I loved the last album, and it was one hundred percent me. But this is like me two years later, who understands a little bit more about music and understands a little bit more about making an album. I wrote a lot more.” – Jennifer Lopez

“This is the man my mother lived for. My career means something now because I’ve worked with Robert Redford.” – Jennifer Lopez

“I always joke about letting the haters motivate you. Everybody has that in their life, people who doubt them or make them feel less than they are. It just takes faith and belief in yourself, and you’ve got to dig deep into that. That has to come from you – nobody’s going to give you that.” – Jennifer Lopez
