I should have stated that Rumer Willis is 5ft6, yet she looked quite shrimpish next to Anjelica in that 'Medium' episode. Doesn't that just go to show that virtually anybody can look small next to someone that much taller and vice versa? I think so! 😉

There was a question on 'The Chase' yesterday about Anjelica. No, it wasn't about how tall she is, though there have been the occasional height-related questions on quiz shows, but it was about which film of hers earnt her the Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actress and the answer was 'Prizzi's Honor'. 🏆
5ft8.5 now 😁👍

I just saw Angelica at the tail end of an episode of 'Medium', hugging Rumer Willis and making her look quite a shrimp! I know Rumer's height to be five foot six, and the scene served as a reminder that Angelica is a very tall lady indeed!
5ft9.5 peak and an inch less now. She still looked her peak height in 'Medium', or extremely close to it.
That episode combined three famous acting families: the Arquettes, the Huston acting clan and the Willis/Moore family!

Comparing Anjelica to tiny Christina Ricci, I should have known she was statuesque, even though Christina was still a child in 'The Addams Family'!

🎈🎂🎁 Happy Birthday Anjelica! 🎁🎂🎈
Wishing this lovely lady a Very Happy Birthday!
I'd never really taken in how tall she is, but it doesn't half make sense. She comes from a tall family of brilliant actors, Danny and Jack of whom I have only recently got 'acquainted' with, as it were, Danny through 'American Horror Story' and young Jack through 'Boardwalk Empire'.
5ft9.75 peak; 5ft8.5 now.

5ft10 peak is possible.

I passed her in Midtown Manhattan on Fifth Ave today—did a double take, and sure enough it was Anjelica Huston! I'm 6'2" and was wearing thick-heeled winter boots which give me an extra inch or two, so she was considerably shorter than me, but most definitely on the taller side, especially as a woman. I would guess around 5'9", though I don't know what kind of shoes she was wearing.

Rob , she was shorter than joan Cusack in The addams Family.

A very strong 5'10'' in her day, too tall beside 6'2'' John Cusack so she is actually placed further from the camera.
There is a an impromptu photo of her beside her 6'2'' father John Houston at some horsing event, she is wearing riding boots so not much of a heel, but even though she isn't standing straight she looks over 5'10''. May have approached 5'11'' at peak.

Maybe she had heels on, not sure. But she looked quite a bit taller than Susan and Meg (who claims to be 5 foot 8). The only height I ever heard Anjelica say in an interview (back in the late 80's) was 5 feet 9 inches.

I know what picture you're talking about, Jen. I believe that Anjelica was wearing heels and Susan and Meg were in flattish shoes. I really believe that Anjelica is 5'7" or 5'8" tops
Jen said on 29/Apr/07
She still looks tall. I saw a picture of her with Susan Sarandon and Meg Ryan (who were the same height) and she was at least 4 inches taller than them, maybe 5 inches. Susan & Meg were the same height in the pic, and Anjelica was almost like an amazon woman. It was at one of the "Women in Film" awards presentations about 4 years ago or so.

My grandma met her once at a bank in LA and she said that Angelica was very tall and gaunt. My grandma is about 5'8 and claims that Angelica was at least 3 inches taller than her.

She might be even shorter, because in photos with Cate Blanchett (5'8 1/2") She looks half an inch shorter. Here's one.
Look at all the photos toghether.

I passed her on the boardwalk at Venice 5 or 6 years ago. She was wearing flat shoes and seemed the same height as I. I am a fraction under 5'10"

I would still say 5'10. She was slightly taller than Gwyneth Paltrow in 'The Royal Tennenbaums'
