There’s no mistaking it — Jenna Ortega is the queen of 2023!

From her deadpan sense of humor and a high tolerance for spicy chicken wings to her amazing acting talent and creative direction, there isn’t a single thing we don’t find endearing about Jenna. We certainly aren’t the only ones who feel the same way as this American actress is on the mind of everyone in the world. So much so that it would be beside us to not tell you everything there is to know about who we believe is the true breakout star of the decade!

Without further ado, here’s everything about Jenna Ortega, including her height, age, and so much more!

How tall is Jenna Ortega?

Big things often come in small packages, and this saying couldn’t be any more true for Jenna!

According to Just Jared, Jenna stands at about 5-feet-1-inch, a height that often makes her among the shortest of her castmates. Even so, Jenna is beginning to come to terms with her height, as her being short has bestowed upon her a special gift.

“I don’t know if it’s insecurity in my height, or if it’s the fact that I think because of my height, my body kind of said…you should be able to run in heels,” Ortega expressed. “So I can. It’s a talent of mine. It’s probably what I’m best at.”

How old is Jenna Ortega?

For someone so young, it’s nearly hard to believe that her acting career has taken off some quickly!

Today, Jenna is 20 years old. She was born on September 27, 2002, in Coachella Valley, Palm Desert, CA.
