How tall is Marilyn Monroe ?

Marilyn Monroe height: 5ft 5.5in (166 cm)

American actress best known for movies like Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Some Like it Hot, The Seven Year Itch, How to Marry a Millionaire and Let's Make Love. Her official site gives her this height and 140lbs. I think her curvy figure maybe gave an illusion of her being shorter than she was.

She is the most beautiful woman I've ever seen, but there's no way she was 5'5'' tall, that might be the way in which today's industry tries to approximate her to today's standards...in the movies she seems soooo small. I believe she was short, and not skinny...she was perfect the way she was.

Attractive yes, but not a natural beauty. I don't think she looks sooo small at all, in fact I think the could look tallish at times, average at others, not short like somebody like Teresa Wright or Debbie Reynolds. For some reason I've got the feeling that she smelled of greasy chips and bacon. Something made me think that she'd smell of fat, lord knows why!!

Certainly no less than as listed. In her pics with Cary Grant from Monkey Business, she makes him look shorter than I've seen him look any place else. He looks often approximately 5 inches taller than her, not around 8 inches. However, in the picture with Monroe, Grant and Joe DiMaggio, Cary Grant does seem to be taller than DiMaggio, probably by a inch+.

I never thought Marilyn looked short, she was easily around 5ft 4.5 to 5ft 5.5

Her wax-work in Madam Tussauds is shorter than the listed height - but I'm not sure if the wax-works are completely accurate with regards to height. I stood next to her representation in the same pose, wearing the same height of heels and we looked almost exactly the same height - I am 5'3 (possibly and a half).

Most woman of an average height would be underweight at 115-118 lbs. Ask your doctor, ladies. Please do not put impossible or unhealthy expectations on your own body according to someone's opinion. I am 5'5" and a normal build. I went to my doctor because I felt my weight was out of control and he told me I was only 20 lbs. overweight, at most. I thought I was over 60 lb.s overweight. 140-150 lb.s is a very healthy weight, as is 115-120s. It's just the way we are supposed to be.
