How tall is Andie Macdowell

I weighed 138 pounds. I'm 5 foot 8, so by the charts I'm in there. But by the way we're supposed to work, I'm maybe five pounds over. But [Peter Weir] is the only director who said, 'Please, don't lose weight.' I couldn't believe it. It's the first time that anybody has ever said that to me. Oh, God, what a relief!
-- 1993
The whole business of trying to stay thin all the time can drive us crazy. I used to look at my figure and think 'fat', yet I look at old pictures of myself and I was a lot thinner and lighter than today.
I was around 8st 10lb for my height of 5ft 8in and yet I was still being told by certain photographers that I should be thinner!
The trouble is that Hollywood and the modelling world are obsessed with weight and the victims are the girls who'll do anything to lose it.

138 at 5'8 that's even on the light side but depends on the woman

5'7.5. Looks taller though, like 5'9 because of long legs and frame. Very sexy woman

This woman does not age! With regards to her height, I am pretty sure her peak was 5'8.

She was definitely a tall woman. She looked 5'8" in Groundhog Day standing next to Bill Murray. Tall woman for sure, she was also taller than Jordan's Brewster in the movie Only the Brave. I'll say 5'8" for her at peak.

She's really about 5ft8 tall. She played Selena Gomez's mom and Leighton Meester's stepmom on Monte Carlo and she was evidently taller than them by at least 3 inches.

Rob, do woman tend to lose height more quickly than men?
Editor Rob
Yes, they can be more prone to earlier losses and greater amounts by age 70.

A women in her 40's is more likelier to lose height than a man.

Once a man gets to his 50's, the odds start to increase some loss will start to occur, but I think that age of 60-65 is where a lot of men lose something noticeable like ยฝ or ยพ of an inch.
RisingForce said on 3/Jul/17
Agreed, Rampage. I think Julia is more 5'7.5"-5'7.75" range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/17
Looked a solid 173cm in her prime. Moreso than Julia Roberts

Danimal, are you going to do this on every page with a celebrity close to 60 or older? Andie being 59 doesn't mean she's lost as much as the average(from that one survey with 2000 people). My aunt was 5'4" peak and she's about half a decade older than Andie, yet she's still closer to 5'4" than 5'3" despite very small boned. Some people don't lose much, especially when they're not that old.

She's almost 60 years old. The average 60 year old woman has lost 1.5" for their peak.
Editor Rob: not looked at her much lately, but having a look just now, I don't think she has lost a full inch yet, maybe half or three quarter is possible.

Any old excuse to check her out Rob ;-) She's still smoking hot even at 60.

Andie is more 5'7 thqan 5'8 . In the muse where she starred along 5'8'5" Sharon Stone she looked at least an inch shorter when they were both barefoot.
Richardspain said on 30/Apr/17
She is tall, barefoot 172cm no less. With heels 177 or 178cm

I think it would probably get too big as one category anyway!!
Arch Stanton said on 7/Nov/16
Mmm, but then you'd need to distinguish between real blockbuster movie stars and Netflix/TV type actors, and there's often an overlap nowadays, I'm sure you could come up with something though!
Arch Stanton said on 7/Nov/16
Perhaps call it "Hollywood A-list actresses" and "Hollywood A-list actors".
Arch Stanton said on 7/Nov/16
@Rob, how do you define "big name" that's the problem, so many celebrities nowadays. I would suggest "Hollywood A-listers" as a category, but set a certain requirement for inclusion. Like they must have been in one of highest grossing films of a given year, something like that. It could get big but I think you could certainly pick out a selection which will cover the bulk of them post classic era, Dustin Hoffman, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Jane Fonda, Kris Kristofferson, Donald Sutherland, Elliot Gould, Michael Douglas, Peter Fondam Andie Macdowell, Kevin Bacon, Kevin Costner, Jeff Goldblum, Kiefer Sutherland, Meryl Streep, River Phoenix, Keanu Reeves, Johnny Depp, Bruce Willis, Geena Davis, Susan Sarandon, Brad Pitt, Juliette Lewis, Brandon Lee, Sylvester Stallone, Sharon Stone, Denzel Washington, Mel Gibson, Bill Pullman, Samuel L. Jackson, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, The Rock, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Reese Witherspoon, Will Smith, Toim Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, Gerard Butler are some of the names which spring to mind first in thinking about films from 70s onwards. It will be a big category for sure but I think would be useful.
Editor Rob
it is a hard category to define really.
Sarah said on 6/Nov/16
Definitely a 5'8", or even a little above that. Looks about 8" taller than 5'2" Teryl Rothery, although she does appear to have a 2" shoe advantage:

Do you think she could be a hair above 5'8?

A friend of mine was working as a cop in the Bozeman, Montana airport about fifteen years ago and Ms. Macdowell needed a little help. My friend came to her assistance and said that there were two striking things about her: 1. she was taller than he expected (a legit five eight in flats) and 2. she was unbelievably beautiful in person. My friend, as macho a cop as you'll find, nearly swooned as she was speaking to him.

Rob how come the photo not showing here? Its a tiny box on my computer like the old G photos at the moment. :-( Can you add Bad Girls, Michael, Short Cuts, The Muse and Monte Carlo (for the younger ones). At the moment it's her in the early 90s and Kathleen Turner in the 80s I have a big thing for!! Both the same height too.. The name Kathleen Turner though is probably about as unsexy as you can get, sort of like Dave Gorman for a guy LOL!
Editor Rob
ah, it was a filename with a instead of e, fixed now thanks!
Arch Stanton said on 10/Oct/14
Rob can you add a photo, preferably from late 80s early 90s :-) She was so hot back then, so sensual!! like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman the permed hair and white bath robe sort of thing... Which daughter is that Sam? The one with the blue eyes looks like her father rather than mother.
Editor Rob
she still looks bloody incredible mid 50's!
Sam said on 19/Aug/14
Her daughter is on The Leftovers, ok actress and attractive girl but obviously not as tall as her mom.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jul/14
Pretty tall yeah. Looks about this next to Hugh Grant in Four Weddings.
sam said on 21/Oct/08
One of her daughters is in my class. She's def tall, though I haven't seen her that closely.
Socom said on 8/Dec/07
I think a little over 5'7, maybe not 5'8 though
Chris said on 4/Nov/07
To me she looked more than 3 inches shorter than Hugh Grant in Four Weddings And A Funeral. More like 5'7.5" I think.
Rose-Marie said on 9/Aug/06
I haven't met her, but she says in the movie Green Card that her height is 5'8" and her weight is 125 lbs. I think she gave her real height and weight in that bit of dialog.
x said on 21/Nov/05
Then laetitia is not all that 5'7 is she???
