Tina Fey, the American actress known for “Saturday Night Live,” “Mean Girls,” “30 Rock,” and “Date Night,” stands at 5 feet 4 ½ inches (163.8 cm). This information comes directly from Fey, who corrected a common misconception about her height in an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, saying, “The Internet says I’m 5-foot-2. And I’m 5-4 and a half.”

She also mentioned her height in Glam in 2008. For context, the average height of an American woman is around 5 feet 4 inches (162.5 cm). Therefore, Fey’s height is just slightly above this average, aligning her closely with the height of many American women.

“It’s impossible to talk about it without somehow seemingly exploiting it and glorifying it,” the comedian said about being slashed by a strange man when she was five years old in an alleyway behind her home in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.

“It was in, like, the front yard of her house, and somebody who just came up, and she just thought somebody marked her with a pen,” her husband Jeff Richmond added.

“I proceeded unaware of it. I was a very confident little kid. It’s really almost like I’m kind of able to forget about it until I was on-camera,” says Fey, who prefers showing her right side to the camera.
