New Heights

Peaches e-mailed me that she had an addition to my Famous Females of Height list: the 6-foot-tall Terry Farrell from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Before I added Ms. Farrell to the list, I looked her up on the Internet to refresh my memory as to what she looked like and as often occurs on the Internet, one thing leads to another and I found myself on the Celebrity Heights Web site, which offers "commentary, celebrity fan photos, quotes and gossip on the heights of celebrities."

I worked the site and discovered a bevy of tall females that were missing from my list and I have now corrected my omissions.

Caveat One: There are tall female celebrities listed on Celebrity Heights Web site that I did not add to my list because I have never heard of them. (It's my list, so I'll include who I want and I only want to include who I know.)

Caveat Two: The Celebrity Heights Web site lists heights by the half-inch, i.e., 5'8", 5'8.5", 5'9", 5'9.5", etc. My list lists heights by the full inch, so I rounded up anyone who was in between to the next full inch, for example, although Miss Staci Lana Hunter may be listed on the Celebrity Heights Web as 6'1.5", I listed her as 6'2".

Here is the list of omissions that are now on my list, listed according to height:

5'8": Tia Carrere, Ciara, Jill Clayburgh, Marcia Cross, Heather Graham, Veronica Hamel, Mel Harris, Jill Hennessy, Faith Hill, Jessica Lange, Angela Lansbury, Kelly LeBrock, Michelle Lee, Judith Light, Andee Macdowell, Ali MacGraw, Pamela Sue Martin, Maureen O'Hara, Elizabeth Perkins, Rihanna, Molly Ringwald, Tanya Roberts, Mimi Rogers, Isabella Rossellini, Rene Russo, Cybill Shepherd, Vonda Shepherd, Mary Steenburgen, Sharon Stone, Emma Thompson, Jo Ann Worley, Daphne Zuniga

5'9": Mischa Barton, Ingrid Bergman, Cate Blanchette, Joanna Cassidy, Carol Channing, Susan Clark, Natalie Cole, Polly Draper, Barbara Feldon, Pam Grier, Melanie Griffith, Rachel Griffiths, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Katherine Heigl, Stana Katic, Joanna Kerns, KD Lang, Sophia Loren, Tina Louise, Lee Meriwether, Patricia Neal, Nancy O'Dell, Paula Prentiss, Diana Rigg, Connie Sellecca, Joan Severance, Molly Sims, Alexis Smith, Lindsay Wagner, Kate Walsh, Esther Williams, Alicia Witt, Paula Zahn

5'10": Lucie Arnaz, Teresa Graves, Sally Kirkland, Jane Leeves, Camryn Manheim, Bridget Moynahan, Jo Ann Pflug, Jean Smart, Peta Wilson

5'11": Carol Alt, Anna Chancellor, Adrianne Curry, Ellen Dubin, Jaclyn Lee, Kristanna Loken, Tracey Needham, Missi Pyle, Rie Rasmussen, Victoria Silvstedt, Taylor Swift, Gina Torres

  1. I was going to suggest Taylor Swift the other day, because I was reading about her after hearing "Christmases When You Were Mine", so I'm glad to see she's already on your list.

    What I think is really funny is the way some people can look in photographs much taller or shorter than in real life. Ms. Swift always looks like such a pixie to me that I never suspected she was so tall!

    I'm becoming a fan of her work. Normally, I can't stand country music, especially modern country music, but while her lyricism certainly would benefit from a little more maturity, she performs with true feeling. Her song "Teardrops On My Guitar" is a masterwork, and shows the true nature of her potential.

  2. Speaking of country music, anybody know how tall Holly Williams is? I couldn't find anything on the Internet, but I did find a picture of her standing next to her father and Kid Rock at the CMT Awards, and Kid Rock is supposedly 6'0" tall. In the picture she seems an inch or so taller, so even if she's wearing 4" heels, that would still put her at about 5' 9" tall. But her father is listed in some places as being 6' 2" tall, and in that pic, she looks even a little taller than him, and she's not even standing straight, which may have something to due with recovering from her injuries from the car crash back then.

    Of course, Kid Rock and Hank, Jr. could also be wearing boots with heels, so who knows?

    Here's the pic:

  3. Gemma --- I also have been unsuccessful finding anything about Ms. Williams' height.

  4. Staci/Lana thanks for just being who you are...the last few days have been painful for me...just looking at a pretty painted toe has made me ache and hurt in ways I've never allowed myself to feel. Thanks for just posting and being who you are
