Comment on the Height of Meryl Streep

I guess she was laughing while mentiong 3 quarters is because it's ridiculous to say that in a conversation. Most people round their height up or down. They might seem like they have a height complex bringing up quarters in a conversation.
It's funny, though, how a 5'5 woman convincingly played a 6'2 character. There's only one Meryl Streep.

Sometime in 1979(after Manhattan was released but before Seduction of Joe Tynan and Kramer vs. Kramer)the NY Times had a brief feature article on her in one of their Friday arts sections and listed her as 5'6" and 120 pounds. Wish I could find that old article online but I don't see it.

Rob can you add Sophie's Choice and The Deer Hunter?

5'6.75 in sneakers maybe. Around 5'6", she was about 1.5 shorter than Klaus Maria Brandauer in Out of Africa with a bit of footwear advantage. Klaus was around 5 ft 8 peak, you might remember him in Never Say Never Again opposite Sean Connery and Kim Basinger.
[Editor Rob: she's claiming to be the same height as G...although she laughed when saying it - G certainly doesn't laugh when he says 5ft 6 and 3/4 :(]

I found what Meryl said she was...she claims to be 5ft 6 and 3/4.

Meryl could be a bit over 5ft 6 because i am near that height and she was a good 2 inches taller than me and we were both standing in barefeet near a beach when i met her 2 years back.

I love Meryl Streep, but she's not 5'6". 5'4.5" seems accurate.

When Meryl first hit it big in the late 70's, she was listed at 5-7. But 5-6 is definitely accurate now.
