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

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'
