Comment on the Height of Sigourney Weaver

Rob do you think weaver looked 6ft at very young age? If not then maybe close to it? 5ft 11.75? She was a solid very tall woman and still is now I'd say, had to be a strong 5ft 11 in the first alien film.
[Editor Rob: she has claimed six foot once at least!]

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)
SaveUsY2J said on 1/Sep/14
A peak Perlman was more 6'1 than 6'0 but never mind.
Bud said on 1/Sep/14
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.
Guy said on 23/Jul/14
In alien she had military boots. Io think she is a solid 181
177cmGuy said on 2/Jul/14
Looked the same height as Michael Biehn in Aliens. She is definite 6'0 at peak.

She towered over Melanie Griffith in "Working girl".

5' 11.5" ( 1.82 m ) peak
5' 11" ( 1.80 m ) current

Stephen Lang oddly looks a bit taller in Avatar.
dawn said on 25/Dec/13
Rob,how much do you think she weighed in Alien ?
[Editor Rob: probably around 130-3]
elf said on 15/Nov/13
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"
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
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.
myrtle said on 10/Oct/12
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)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Aug/12
182-183cm peak, most tall women round down
Anonymous said on 11/Oct/07
i think i'm about the same height as her. i do exactly what mattiew mentioned and i downplay my height. i slouch a lot and wear very flat shoes bringing my heiht down to 5'10ish then when i'mm fully upright i'm 6'. i tend not to wear shoes with any sort of heel, but if i wear trainers or well made shoes with low heels, my posture is corrected bringing me to around 6'2".
i like being this tall as a girl, it means i can eat more chocolate and dont look as fat as shorter people, and i can show off very long legs!
glenn said on 6/Oct/07
bumped into her 5 months ago.still seemed close to 5-11.wouldnt pose.i have an old photo ill post one day.
Marcelo C. said on 5/Oct/07
No doubt, she´s roughly 5´10" or a bit more.
Mattiew_^ said on 29/Sep/07
She appears to be 6'0 at least ...

No way she is 5'11 , she must downgrade her height like many tall women / actresses do ...
One of my best friends is 184cm and she claims to be 180 ...
Mr Mayfair said on 10/Jan/07
I saw her fairly regulary around the time of shooting the Alien film (with Charles Dance) at my Cafe, I'd say she was spot on 5.10 then - barefoot.
Anonymous2 said on 22/Dec/06
I sat next to her in a fancy NYC beauty salon about 8 years ago. I'm 5'10" and she easily had an inch on me then.
anonymous2 said on 3/Sep/06
I woudn't be surprised if she is the same height she was 15,20 years ago. She's got fantastic posture. not everyone has lost height by her age.
Random Person said on 25/Aug/06
I am currently watching the television show "Richard and Judy" and Sigourney said that she is 5'11 barefoot.
dmeyer said on 10/Aug/06
give her 182 or 183 at peak
Anthony said on 21/May/06
In her prime, I have no problem saying that she was 6'. In "Alien" she wasn't too far off from 6'3 Yaphet Koto, and she towered over anyone else. In some shots she looked as tall as 6'2 because she was wearing boots a lot of the time. Even now, she still looks to be in the 6' range, I'd say today she is a solid 5'11 1/4 today. She towered over Jennifer Love Hewitt in "Heartbreakers".
trueheight said on 20/May/06
yea in the Locker Room scene in Aliens she looked the tallest out of all the men
Keddy said on 18/May/06
According to the book of guiness in 2000 says that Sigourney is 6'0 183 cm and theres two actor shares her same height and that is GEENA DAVIS & BRIGITTE NIELSEN.
D.K said on 17/Feb/06
The Guiness Book is wrong. Tamara Dobson, the lead actress in Cleopatra Jones, a seventies action flick is 6'3
JUSTMATT said on 7/Jan/06
She is exactly 182 cm and she was measured in the Guinness World records Book with Brigitte Nielsen!!
talker said on 27/Aug/05
I've walked past Sigourney about 20 years ago in NY and she was definitely 6'then.
