Yes in an interview with Redbook magazine in 1993, I think. She was on the cover and in the interview inside she did say, "People are always surprised that I'm five foot eight." I admit that I was surprised when I read that quote, as I always imagined her being about 5 foot 6 or so (not that it matters).

Finally saw a quote and she did indeed once claim to be 5ft 8.

i would put her at 5'6" or 5'6.5"...she looked that next to Val Kilmer (5'11.5")

Meg Ryan at 5'7? No way. She's definitely shorter than both Billy Crystal and the Cougar.

OK, I watched Harry Met Sally, and she looked 2cm under Billy Crystal for most of the movie when they wore similar footwear. I think Crystal is 168cm, so I would place Ryah at 166cm. Not only that, but I saw Ryan upclose once, and placed her at 5'5" in my mind, so 166cm seems closer. Definitely not 170cm as currently listed.

No way, she looks 4 inches smaller than Andy Garcia 1,76m

Looks 5'6 range next to Bill Pullman in Sleepless in Seattle and oddly looks few inches shorter than Rosie o Donnell.

Saw she and John Cougar in Philly outside of hotel a couple of years ago. He's 5'7" and she's 5'4" max.

Len: (problematic pic) Kristen Bell is wearing heels. Im guessing 3" heels and Med is in mud boots with a 1" heel.

How tall in these shoes rob?
[Editor Rob: possibly almost 5ft 10.5]
Len said on 27/Jul/13
Even 5'7" is surprising. In Serious Moonlight, she didn't look all that much taller than 5'1" Kristen Bell.

Here's a problematic pic for ya:

I always thought she was 5'5"-5'6". After seeing she claimed 5'8" I'll just assume added 2 inches and believe she's 5'6". It seems everyone that's met her thinks she's in that range as well.

I've met her and escorted her through our spa facility when she was here for a celebrity event. She was exactly my height 5 foot 6.

Crystal wears lifts in his shoes. I'm telling you, when they filmed "Mail," I saw her every day. She's not that tall.
Jen said on 24/Dec/12
Well her claim is 5 foot 8. So who knows? I always imagined her as about 5 foot 6.
Drake said on 8/Dec/12
No way. My apt in NY was right in front of her trailer. She's about 5'4.' Crystal must be really short...
Shaun said on 30/Sep/12
Yeah 1:05 she's still a tad taller than Crystal in her socks and he's in sneakers. She can't be under 5 ft 7. If she is then he's under 5 ft 6!
Shaun said on 30/Sep/12
Na she's taller than Billy Crystal see 40:44. When the camera zooms down at 41:10 she's wearing flats.

Mmm 31:46. Both Ryan and Crystal are in flat shoes. He looks a bit taller, tell me what you think Rob. Although maybe its manipulated by angle and level for him not to appear shorter?
Shaun said on 30/Sep/12
Roughly two inches taller than Billy Crystal with average heels I think. Barefoot might be a similar height, weak 5'7".
