I'd say around 5'1" max in 2007 at the time of the pic. Perhaps even shorter nowadays, being she's 76.

No actually. No "o" in her name.

@ Nik - The thing about bouncy, height-enhancing hair is that when it looks natural, as Adrienne's does, you're going to see the owner as effortlessly taller. Sometimes, it's hard to be able to stipulate exactly how much advantage the hair is supplying, but instead of racking my brain, I tend to simply admire the hair!

Peak - 5ft2 🌹🤔
Today - 5ft1.5 🌹😁

Her hair can be very deceiving!

The last time I seen Adrienne was a couple years ago. We were waiting inside the photo studio in a queue for another actress. Adrienne was due after our session, but she came in early (before the other actress arrived) and the photographer obviously had no clue what Adrienne or the other actress looked like and began asking the first punter to go and take the photo...

I had to discretely tell the photographer who she was...

But what's interesting is everybody else was just looking at each other, nobody speaking up 😶 I mean I'd have happily got another free photo with her like the guy at the front of the queue 😁 He was one confused looking guy!

Anyway, she hadn't really aged much since 10 years previously when I seen her, neither did she look like she shrunk any more. For 73 she was in good health!

All the vowels are in her name!

@ 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!

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.

I think she was 5' her peak.

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

5'2" looks right to me.

She looks 5'2 to me.

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.

she's 5-3 1/2

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".
RICHARD said on 17/Jun/07
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".

Hey, and Then there's Maude!

Franks right.5-2.
Frank2 said on 26/May/06
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...
