Adrienne Barbeau's Height
5ft 1 ½ (156.2 cm)
Peak height was 5ft 2 (157.5 cm)
American actress best known for The Fog, Creepshow and Escape from New York. In a 1977 LA Times article she mentioned: "I'm only 5 foot 2"
although also claimed to be almost 5ft 3. In this convention photo she had almost 2 inches more footwear than me.

@ Rob - If she plays the part that I THINK she does in 'Creepshow', then she's very friendly in that as well, if a bit forward! Ha ha ha!
That is the only part that is played by a small brunette and is nothing like the DJ in 'The Fog'.

Wasn't Adrienne the DJ in 'The Fog'? Well, now I know she stands 5ft2 tall, or did when the film was made!
So I see that she was also in Stephen King's 'Creepshow'! I'll have to check out which character she played as I have recently acquired a copy!
Editor Rob: Sandy, been a while since I watched anything with Adrienne in it, but she was very friendly that weekend.

I had a huge crush on her back in the Fog and Swamp Thing days!I would not have thought she was less than 5-4 back then.Her frame and the way she carried herself really fooled me.

She's still 5'2 - I've got a good eye.

The reason she doesn't know her height is because she's a girl. I'll give you the benefit of my degree in psychology - men want to be tall, women want to be pretty.
When you talk about John Wayne or Mel Gibson height will come up as a topic. When people talk about Adrienne Barbeau nobody dwells on height. They may talk about bust or cup size but not stature.

I think she had twins at 50 years old. She was great in Creepshow as the b!#@tchy wife who got eaten by the monster. "Just tell it to call you Billy".

She's definetly 5-3(1.60 cm). In Creepshow she didn't look 5-2 but more like 5-3 or 5-4. She's a good actress and can't wait to see her in the remake of Halloween.

Sacramento Bee, 1993 article, "She's 5-foot-2 3/4-inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. But, as she notes".

I ran into her about fifteen years ago and she looked scary! I mean really rough around the edges. And she's a tiny woman. I suspect even shorter than 5'3". She was wearing flats and I could easily look down onto the top of her head. I'd say closer to 5'2". No more than that.
[Editor Rob: I forgot to say, Glenn what was your own estimate of her? She didn't have heels on I assume...]
