Comment on the Height of Sigourney Weaver

Anybody who is shorter than six foot three barefoot is six-three in heels. You just have to wear the right size heels. I'm 300 pounds when I'm holding a barbell.

Can look 5ft11-6ft

I just find her comment about losing roles very strange. In the 80's and 90's you had alot of actors who were over 6 foot, no need to wear massive heels all the time. Nowadays i would understand as alot of the big blockbuster actors are under 5'10 even.

Someone like a 6'3 Gwendoline Christie is another story.

Ms Weaver seems like my older sister who'd refer to herself as 5'12" before she'd ever confess to being 6'0".... Nevertheless Ms Weaver always appears quite genuine maybe legitimately rounding down from 181cm perhaps..

Was just watching her towering over her co stars in ghostbusters and decided to look her up!

Gorgeous Amazon Woman!

Yeah, she's aged very well IMO, she can look a pretty strong 5'11". Watching Alien as a young teen, I found that climatic confrontation in the panties and tight shirt was uh, very watchable.

6foot. Still a gorgeous & classy lady, one of the best female actresses ever

Perlman was 2in taller than her in Alien 4 (not quite up to par with the previous 3 instalments admittedly)

A peak Perlman was more 6'1 than 6'0 but never mind.

In Alien 4 she was at least an inch shorter than 6ft Ron Perlman,she wasn't taller than 5'11.

Unlike other tall actresses, I don't see her on the screen and think, "wow, that lady is tall." All I see is the character she's playing. Love her.

In alien she had military boots. Io think she is a solid 181

Looked the same height as Michael Biehn in Aliens. She is definite 6'0 at peak.

She towered over Melanie Griffith in "Working girl".

Stephen Lang oddly looks a bit taller in Avatar.

Rob,how much do you think she weighed in Alien ?
[Editor Rob: probably around 130-3]

Women who are 6' or taller usually lie about their height by saying: I'm only 5'11 and a half
Arch Stanton said on 29/Sep/13
Mmm she looks about 1.5 inches shorter than 6'1" Bill Murray in Ghostbusters in flats. I could buy 5'11.5",.
Marc said on 29/May/13
One of her lesser known movies, but, in my opinion, best proformance I have ever seen, was Snow Cake.
Editor Rob said on 24/Nov/12
On a website it mentioned "One day Sigourney told me about Pilates. She said it had saved her back, lengthened her height an inch and made her spine younger"

She was taller than ray liotta in heartbreakers and made jennifer love hewitt look like a little girl. I'm pretty sure she wasn't wearing heels in some scenes. Realy tall. She was taller than tim allen. 180cm.

Definitely 6', She's tall, well-proportioned and classy, I love all her
movies especially Aliens
Joey said on 24/Sep/12
I'd go for 5'10 (178cm) barefoot (neither morning nor night)...women too like to round up their height.. tho not as much as men do ( like a 5'10 male celebrity would most likely claim something around the 6ft area)

182-183cm peak, most tall women round down
