@ Yup! Two of the girls were 6ft and the eldest one was 6ft1. The middle girl was applying to become a model, and they said she was ideal but she should get her teeth straightened out. She told them to stick their job!
When my boyfriend walked down the street with a tall, blonde girl either side of him, he said that they looked like his bouncers and felt really rather proud!

Yeah, if your parents are 6'0" and 6'4", it's no surprise that you'd end up very tall.

@ Christian 6'5 3/8 - The girls were my boyfriend's stepdaughters. He was more of a father to them than their 6ft4 biological father. He did anything for them.
Anyone can be a father or a mother, but the reams of love that he showered on the girls when they were growing up took some beating.
Cheers Christian! XXX 😁👍

Are the 6ft+ daughters your boyfriend's children or stepchildren? Either way, that's a pretty tall family. I come from a slightly tall family myself, but I only know of one female that's 6ft+ (one of my second cousins I believe) Even my mom's 5'11" range (I used to believe she's 6'0" though)

💐🎁🎂🎉 Happy Birthday Bjork! 🎉🎂🎁💐
Birthday Greetings to Bjork, who turns 54 today! I thought she looked so much smaller than 5ft4 in 'Dancer In The Dark', but that's before I knew quite how tall David Morse is! Beautiful film, BTW....🎼🎶😔🎵
Actually, my boyfriend saw her live, and said she was tiny, but he was used to living with a girlfriend of 6ft and her three 6ft+ daughters!

Nice photo! She doesn't look this tall!

I've been reading the comments below and I have to agree; I, too, thought she was considerably shorter. The contribution from Sabrina from Iceland, however, who has very interestingly met the star, bears out that she really is 5ft4 though.
A few years ago, I found out that Bjork was the lead in a Lars Von Trier film called 'Dancer in the Dark', about a woman who is sadly losing her sight. I'd recommend it to anyone who has an interest in Bjork! It was good to find that she has more strings to her bow other than singing, though she does sing in the film!
Finally, why do we all seem to mispronounce her name? I don't know how it should sound like to this day! This has given rise to the odd joke or two, but my favourite has to be the one from 'Emmerdale', wherein a piggy who is rescued from the slaughterhouse by a couple of comical and lovable male characters, is named Pjork (and another Kevin Bacon!). Very funny!

I am glad to find a blog in wich talk about heights. Congratulations, you

I don't think Bjork has a slender figure. Have you looked at her stomach and her hips? Anyway, I never thought she was taller than 5 feet. I am surprised she is my height.
Leslie said on 13/Mar/08
Yep...5'4" it is. I met her last night. So awkward with the brief convo we had, then a few hours later at the afterparty, she turned me down (after seemingly contemplating) when I asked for a photo with her. I'm glad it wasn't just me...ha.
Niz said on 16/Jan/08
I read about her in a newspaper article and they described her as 'pint-sized' which makes no sense when it comes to her being 163cm... :S
glenn said on 19/Dec/07

dave said on 18/Dec/07

Serious? 5'4! Gosh, I would've guessed much lower. In hindsight, this actually makes sense - while she often looks petite on her own, people of average height don't dwarf her.

More like little beast..... with a beautiful voice.
Franco said on 2/Apr/07
i'm 1 foot taller MMMUHAHAHAHA 6'4 :D
well it's true 5'4 is correct for this little beauty.

Bjork lost 1" and became 5'3" when she laid an egg here...Click Here
She quickly recovered and became 5'4" again, but the ordeal left her with crumpled skin...Click Here
Sabrina said on 6/Jun/05
I'm from Iceland. I've met Björk many times. I can confirm that she's 5'4". She may seem so small, it's because of her very slender frame.

Okay Rob, I'm here in a hotel room in Atlanta waiting on some friends, on my trusty labtop on this site! I've even turned people onto this site. I should get paid for free advertisment! :-) Anyway, I saw Bjork in concert in '01 and was suprised at how 'tall' she was. I remember reading an article where the writer described her as being doll-like and diminutive yet in reality, she's average height for a female. (In the US that is) With heels on, she's around the same height as her current husband, Matthew Barney and when she was with Tricky, who is admittedly 5'8", she wasn't too much shorter. She comes across as being small and fairylike but she's really not.
