I saw Allison on Ellen's show a while ago and she looked a good 6ft! Ellen was quite tiny in comparison to her, honest!
Allison sails through with her 6ft, as written here. It's well worth mentioning that she is funny as well as tall! 👍👍
Editor Rob: there is a chance now that Allison will have lost a fraction or so by late 50's, though still seems over 5ft 11.

Shes 5'11.25 and always this tall and maybe 5'11.5 peak. No way she was 6'0

She came out with Conan today and she was wearing about 4 inch heels and Conan beat her by a lot. Janney is about 5'11 now it's time for a downgrade.

She looks 5.5 inches taller than Ellen, sometimes Allison tends to tilt her head to the side, though. I would say 6ft1 with shoes. Which makes Ellen at least 5ft7.5 with shoes.

Anyone think she's a little bit taller than 6ft barefoot?
I kinda do. I think she's probably 6ft and 1/2.

Might even be 184cm or perhaps even 6'1" in the morning. Looked very close to 6'3" Jimmy Smits while wearing smallish heels (most likely) in The West Wing.

I think she might edge Alan Alda (6'1") by a bit in that show as well.

Mentions herself as 5'11 in The West Wing, not that that means anything.

Allison 6 feet tall? Didn't know she was that enormous! Because she looked much smaller on-screen in her movies.

it's not a big deal but it should be "she's hard NOT to notice.."

Well I got a picture where she's standing next to Eva Longoria and Brooke Shields. She's the same height as Brooke Shileds, if Brooke Shields is 180 cms, then she should be 180 cms as well. Her claim of not being tall as MacPherson should be true.

Or either Brooke Shields is indeed 6' tall.

If you do a search on the web for a quote that says "I am not elle macpherson tall", you will see that Janney says that she is tall but not Elle Macpherson Tall. This means that if Janney is 6 feet, than Elle is taller than 6 feet.
