Geena Davis Height is 6ft 0in (183 cm)

American actress best known for roles in films like The Long Kiss Goodnight, Thelma & Louise, The Fly and Beetlejuice. In the past (early career) she did downgrade her height slightly, but in Ladies Home Journal she says in reference to being a tall woman in Hollywood: "A couple of years ago, I said to hell with career is working. I'll admit I'm six feet tall. Now I've noticed the press saying I'm six feet two. I'm growing. In a few years I'll be six-four!"

Comment on the Height of Geena Davis

Judd said on 11/May/15
Personally i wouldn't buy anything under 5'11.75", that's my first choice.
Currently I think she hasn't still lost anything. In my opinion she's in the 182-183 cms range...
Let's say 60% of chance is 182 cms and 40% is 183 cms, IMO

She is 6 ft tall, if not a tiny bit more. I know because three years ago I stood right behind her at check at the airport. I am 6 ft. We hat the same footwear and she seemed my height or slightly taller.

If memory serves correct, back in the '80s/early '90s she was listed as 5'10" in certain magazine articles, press releases, etc.. then upon becoming an action star around mid '90s working with then-hubbie, Renny Harlin, with "Cutthroat Island", "Long Kiss Goodnight", etc..she started being listed at 6'. I remember her on Larry King Live saying she was 6 foot. But it was also interesting that in a lot of those earlier roles, doing the more-romantic comedy films, she'd be wearing flats a lot of the time- in "Speechless" w/ Michael Keaton & I think in "Beetlejuice" (also with Keaton LOL). Then jump to mid-'90s and she's got the heels on most of the time. Well, I'm going to say she's more in the 5'11" range (6' in shoes). Stating height in shoes is generally more of a guy thing, yes, but some females do it too. If for anything, I don't see her quite as a full 6' barefoot due to her looking a tad shorter than 5'11" Alec Baldwin in "Beetlejuice", and 5'9" Keaton looking as tall as her in "Speechless" (even though she was in flats and he had on cowboy boots for most of the movie).

Standing side by side Chevey Chase I would say Geena was 5'11'' minium. that's saying Chase is 6'3'' range in Fletch. Actually Geena with her hair has got to be 6'.5''-6'1''. Chase is mentioned in his basketball dream as 6'5'', 6'9'' with the afro. but 6'3'' range max next to 5'11''-5'11.5'' Davis

Geena Davis is exactly 6 feet tall. I know, because I went to school with her and she was six feet then.

Yeah i think she was a bit more than 6' after a long rest and an hair under in the evening.
If you prefer decimal system, about 182 cm at the end of the day, which is very close to 6' or 182,88 cm.

No way she is 6ft, she is around 5'10-5'11 range peak. That would have made her 6'1 in heels.

Can't see under 5'11.5" in any case! She always looked tall, with flat shoes she wasn't much distant from tall actors like Samuel L Jackson (6'2"), Bill Murray (6'1") and Hugh Laurie (6'2.5")!
I think anything between 5'11.5" and 6'0" is fair for her at peak! I think she was taller than a decent 5'11" but shorter than a decent 6'0.5-1"! "Almost 6'0" speaking Rob's language is fair!

In some photos with Goldblum, they looked the same height when she was wearing heels. I would say just a half inch short of 6 feet.

are you sure?

most of those pics are taken in 1989-1990 so they were both at their peaks!
nevertheless i think Jeff Goldblum was a bit taller than a strong 6'4" i said before, an older friend of mine met him years ago and said he was very very tall (he thought 6'5"!).
I think Geena was a weak 6', like 5'11.75" but who could pass for a 6' lady so the listing seems enough fair for me!

She wore shoes with very thin soles in bettlejuice..that was done on purpose so she wouldn't have an inch on 5'11 baldwin

182 max atleast at peak.

In the barefoot scene in The Fly she definitely looks at least 6 ft next to Goldblum, can look 6'0.5" actually next to him.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Mar/14
Barely shorter than Goldblum in heels in The Fly. She has such amazing chocolate brown eyes, I could get lost in them.
liftwearer said on 5/Nov/13
maybe a tad bit shorter now. but still a tall lady. She was quite stunning when she was very young and all the way to her 40s till she sort of seemed to let herself go. Just my opinion. 5 11 max.
truth said on 22/Sep/13
5ft11 max
Vivi said on 9/Aug/13
She's very tall. She towers over every women she is in a movie with and they almost aways have her in flats. She's usually the same height as the men or taller than some. You can tell they are choosey about her costars because of her height. I wonder if she would have had more movie roles if she was just a few inches shorter? She is a gorgeous woman. There' s no way she's shorter than 5'11".
NikkaRog said on 7/Aug/13
Michael Keaton and Gina Davis Stand in a fountain barefooted in the movie Speechless. She is clearly two inches shorter than him. Also theyre close throughout the movie like in a closet getting "close" and he is 5' !0"
avi said on 31/Mar/13
nope shorter than Baldwin in Beetlejuice so 5'11 tops probably less.

Lindsay Davenport is 6'2, Lisa Leslie is 6'4-6'5. No way is Geena 6ft, she is in the 5'10-5'11 range.

Well if she is a full 6' a case could be made for Goldblum being a cm or two higher than 6'4" in his prime. She was still noticeably shorter than him in heels.
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
6 foot. Why would they say 6 foot 2? She is really tall.
Jon said on 13/Feb/12
No she got be 5'11 now because as u get older u shrink.

@Sal U have no idea what ur talking about If Anne Hathaway is 90lbs I´d be less than 70lbs and shes quite tall also I´d say about 132lbs. Btw Uma Thurman is Geena Davis´ height and height doesnt equal being stronger and whats so great about being able to beat so up esp if ur a woman
AKK said on 8/Oct/07
Just read back what I previously posted, and it looks kind of like I'm being mean. I'm not, not intentionally, at least. I just don't want you all to be suffering from back and foot problems down the line. :)

PS. If you think 5'6 is too tall, it's not. Eliza Dushku is supposedly that height. I thought Jane Kaczmarak was like 6', but surprise, she's only about an inch below me. So yeah, some people are bigger than I expected, some are smaller.
Franco said on 8/Oct/07
GEENA is no less than 186cm , its very easy to see in the movie FLETCH next to Chavy Chase, she got 1.5cm shoes and he got about 2 or 2.5cm shoes the difference is really small.

Geena is 186cm minimum.

take a look for yourself.

i think girls who are tall should be happy with themselves
the only reason people give tall girls grief is because they're taller than guys and a lot of them prob. want short girls to make them feel better about themselves so you should embrace your cousin is 6'0 tall and she has no problem with it

I'll be honest. I like my tall women without heels. With heels, it mostly looks like overkill(to say nothing of pushing an already high Centre of Gravity even higher, to possibly unsafe levels). Leave them to the 5'0" women who need them just to be able to scrape their men's chins. ;)
Lisy said on 9/Sep/07
WOW!!! Im so glad that Im not the only tall girl around :) Im 6'1 and I hate my height but there is nothing I can really do about it. I guess I just need to accept my height for what it is and be happy because life is to short to always worry about what other might think. I love wearing high heels but feel way to tall in them. Im trying to be more positive about my height by not looking at it as a bad thing. Thanks to all of you that are so positive to us girls that are tall it really helps alot. :)
Bea said on 4/Sep/07
hey susan, i´m 185 too and 18 years old, and i know how it is to be tall at your age. I suffered too, I didn´t like it. But I don´t care anymore. you just have to wait, when you´ll be my age you´ll probably be happy with your height and with a handsome and tall boy as boyfriend (or short boy, that doesn´t matter, believe me!! )
mary said on 31/Aug/07
um, susan you should be proud of your height. tallness is better than short. Im 5'10 and love it. Embrace who you are and love yourself. Most guys like tall girls and I know i girl 6'2 and had plenty of boyfriends. Your gonna be alright.
christina said on 29/Aug/07
i wanna ask u a question: is it ok that at my age(i am 16) to be 5ft 6 tall?..i'd really like to know u're opinion..cuz i'm a little bit surprised cuz some persons told me that i am too tall for my age,some that i am too short..and now i don't know what to think...thanks
Xerxes said on 26/Aug/07
Did you consider the possibility that susan is a faker and might be messing with ur head to get these sympathies? By no means am I trying to insult anyone here, but I'm not ze politik, so tell me how do i wirt like this. Besides, geena davis doesnt give a crap about height as stated by the above quote, so if u really are the person you say you are, stop taking birth control pills - that's like mowing grass with your TV
Bad Radio said on 24/Aug/07
susan why are you ashamed of being tall??!! SCREW EVERYONE ELSE AND THEIR INSECURITIES !
dmeyer said on 13/Aug/07
is there a possibility she is over 6 ft
Cobra said on 13/Aug/07
Hm, I am male, 20 years old and a shade over 6ft1. I don`t care about the height girls have, expect I wouldn`t stand it that she is taller than me (or max 0,5", then I can wear my cowboy boots and be 6ft3 ;) ), which is practically never the case because of my own height.
I know this is kinda silly, but it is how it is.
@ Susan, don`t worry, many girls stop growing with 15. Hey, long legs are sexy!
They say to you you should be a model because you are tall and pretty so how can you be distressed by your own body?
And still, you are 1 cm shorter than me so no reason to worry about ;)

Sandra you are so smart,

its no point, i think a woman is only ideal if she is like 4.10 inches or 5.00, the rest of us could be out of place for somebody. i have heard guys say women over 5.8 should not wear heels! how silly is that?

I think confidence is a big thing, really, i have seen women wear heels, even tall, and make it soooo good looking, kind of magazine cover like, then i have seen selfconcsious women do it.

general rule for wearing heels, you must be slim, and keep your figure well, dont be fat. even if your big, if you make yourself pretty that should be ok, just dont look like a tall woman trying to hide her height!
Sandra said on 14/Jul/07
Tall1, you can wear high heels if you feel comfortable in them. If not, better opt for lower heels. With more comfortable heels you will feel better and walk straight. There are much smaller women than you who do not wear heels as well because they are afraid they might look too tall. I do not understand why so many tall, thin a beautiful women have such problems to accept their height. It has much to do with people making remarks about their tall figures, but these tall women do not realize that a lot of such remarks are not meant badly. My suggestion to you is following: you are 6' so walk straight and proud. Wear lower heels (up to 2") so you feel good and at ease.
TALL1 said on 9/Jul/07
i'm about 5'11 or 6'0 feet tall and sometimes i'm self conscious about it. And i love high heel shoes but-when ever i where them i get nervous taht people think i'm weird or too tall!! what do you think? do any of you where high heels?
msn87 said on 11/Jun/07
the shocking fact is that there are more alien big girls around than one expects. i knew a girl once during boarding school, she was nearly as tall as me if she stood straight up. of cause around that time i wasn't a obsessed height-freak here on celebheights. at that time(2003)i was 6'1. today it creeps me out a little sometimes, cause she probably has grown a little since like me. oh, what the heck...
msn87 said on 10/Jun/07
you're right, it's not o.k to say things like that but 6'4 that's just so not charming. i wouldn't say i have a complex, but when women are taller than me it's just not right. Davis height can go on but not taller.

[Editor Rob: speaking of geena, a recentish article 'put' 6ft 1 in her mouth:

"I was the tallest girl in my class (6-foot-1) and I felt very uncoordinated"]
love2btall said on 10/Jun/07
msn87 you are always saying "gross" and "disgusting" about tall women. Why don't you grow up? It is so obvious you have a complex. Plenty of men prefer taller women. Either you are a short man or a short woman. Get over it.
msn87 said on 8/Jun/07
are you 6'4?...gross. of cause you're told that you're beautiful, because the ones who told you that, are obviously scared and fear for their lives; you might accidently crush them, woman!

I think geen should be proud of her height!!
my mom is about 6 feet tall also..
and my dad is 6'3, i am 15 and i am 5'5.5 already, so i am going to be tall..
i think that tall people are usually seen as generally more friendly people,. not that short people aren't, i jusyt thihnk that tall women should be proud, there's enough tall men out there for the tall women!
cute said on 20/Apr/07
of course she would domwgrade herself.. it's sometimes pretty to be tall.. but 6ft 0 in??? taller than many guyes...or same height... i understand why she would domwgrade herself... she must feel like a giant.... average height for males in U.S.A is 177...
ttujtyjgjgh said on 27/Feb/07
Really? She would downplay her height? Most attribute "tall" to wonderful adjectives like "leggy" and "svelte," which she certainly earned in "Earth Girls..."
MilNEMGaL said on 25/Feb/07
dmeyer- Back in the 50's they actually built a 12" ditch for Sophia Loren (5'10") to walk next to her co-star, - Alan Ladd- who was about 5'6", I think. Hollywood productions have come a long way since then. Who doesn't think Robert Redford (the shortest "5'10" I've ever seen!) didn't look tall in the saddle in Butch Cassidy? Frankly, he's more like 5'8". I stood right next to him and I am 5'11". All I can say is if he is 5'10", I'm 6'2"!!
Smoke and mirrors..........smoke and mirrors!!

In "Transylvania 6-5000" Davis does scenes with Jeff Goldblum, Ed Begley Jr., and Michael Richards. She looks 5'11" or 6'

Geena is about 6'. I once stood behind her at the ATM machine across the street from Warner Brothers Studio in Burbank. She wore funky shoes with one-inch heels and was about an inch taller than me.

You know she's really tall just by looking at her legs. They go on forever.
Brett said on 14/Feb/06
Yeh, I dunno, she just looked scary big at the Golden Globes, Dwarfing all and Sundry. Plus I mean she is easily taller then Sutherland in heels, and He was like 6'3" at his peak, im sure less nowadays, but still she looked like she was 6'3" or so.
Viper652 said on 13/Feb/06
Also, If she was that much taller in heels then Julian Mcmahan, Julian might be struggling with 6-0, which is hard to beleive. I beleive he is really 6-1.5

Stood next to Geena davis when she was shooting Angie I says. Iam six feet. She was an inch or two shorter.

true, but she really looked comfortably bigger, and my god she looked huge at the golden globes, she was noticably taller then Julian Mcmahon, whoes like 6'2.5" isnt he?
Brett said on 20/Jan/06
I think Geena Davis could even be more then 6'0", I mean she is taller then Donald Sutherland whoes meant to be 6'3", and no doubt she was in heels, but still, I think she could be 6'1". I feel sorry for women that big and tall, its rather scary and unattractive

[Editor Rob: possibly...although Sutherland can look shorter with posture at his age?]

Just read an article about her fiancé from the time she spent in Sweden as a foreign exchange student. In the article, he refers to her height as being 183 cm at the time. This was in 1974.
Here's the article (in Swedish):,2789,761235,00.html
Anshelm said on 18/Oct/05
She looked only slightly – maybe an inch, but not two – taller than Jay Leno, and she was wearing heels. So this would make her probably the shorter of the two, and I'd put Leno at c. 178 cm/5'10". But before this I always thought she looked the 183 cm/6' she should be. This calls for further investigation...

Didn't they say she was 5'10" in Thelma & Louise? Havent seen the pic in a while, but I have a pretty good memory (recited 2,146 decimals of the pi once). And it was a movie line anyway – hardly the best source of information.
Qwerty said on 16/Sep/05
Yeah her height is very unique but then again - im 5ft7, i have about 3 friends [who are girls like myself] and they are bridging the 5ft11-6ft mark! When I'm near them I feel short - its fantastic!

Marty, of course Heidi Klum is tall, lol...she's a supermodel
average supermodel height is probably 5-10 to 5-11 -- the record for the shortest supermodel ever was 5-7 (a dwarf by supermodel standards)

In America, Geena's height is quite exceptional, since she's 6 cm's ABOVE average male height (177 cm).
Marty said on 27/May/05
No reason to hide your height Greena.
I'm from Holland and women are realy tall here. 6' is no exception for girls! I know women who are even taller than myself (187cm) over 6'2", about 190cm.

But most men are taller here too. I know quite some guys who are about 6'6" (200cm). I think my height is about the normal height here while I read somewhere that the normal height for men is about 175cm.

People are getting taller and taller and Greena is one of the first taller female celeberties. There will follow more. Heidi Klum is pretty tall too. And the one that plays Peggy in married with children is real tall too, I think.
