i thin k she is shorter than this. maybe 162 cm not 164. she Always looks short short, and 164 isnt really that short.

I think she's to be downgraded, or at least Ariana Grande is to upgrade.. Ariana was taller than her wearing similar heels

Streisand was 5'5 , or 5'4 1/2

I think things get mixed up here about when was what, reading through the comments. She can easily have been 5'5 in 1960 as stated on some sites. This is 2017 and Barbra is 75 years old. People easily lose a few inches from youth to there.

Perhaps Barbra has lost a bit of height since 1991, when she was written up as 5ft4.5!
I think in true Hollywood style, they did exaggerate her height! I reckon she was 5ft3.5 then and is 5ft2 now.
I will put 5ft2 - the height I think she is these days!
A few seconds later....
I can't give her 5ft2! The lowest box is 5ft2.5, so that's what she gets from me!

I have met her and I guarantee she is not 5" 4".....but it does not matter anyway. She is however a very petite lady. I would say under 5 feet.

@Rob can you squeeze in Hello, Dolly!, The Way We Were and A Star is Born (1976) and mention songs like "People", "The Way We Were", "Evergreen", "It Had to Be You", "I've Dreamed of You", "Somewhere", "Don't Rain on My Parade", "Woman in Love" and "You Don’t Bring Me Flowers".

Saw her in Montecito Saturday night and was shocked at how tiny she was. I would estimate 5'1".

I just saw a photo of her standing next to a man (i.e., no high heels) I know to be 5'5"-5'6" and he was towering over her. I'd say 5'2" at the very most.

Rob can you add Funny Girl, she was acclaimed for her stage performance and film adaption of it which won her the Oscar for Best Actress. 5'4.5" looks accurate in Funny Girl in heels next to 5'11" Omar Sharif. Reminds me a lot of Jennifer Aniston, same height too...

I met Ms Streisand and shook her hand, many years ago, and I would estimate her height to be closer to 5' 2".

wow, that's all? always thought she was taller, but i guess around 5'5 would make sense.

5' 5". Her house in Malibu overlooks a trailer park to the South! Satellite shot. Funny!

Having stood less than 2 feet from Streisand and myself being 6'1 1/2', I don't even think she is 5'4". I was shocked at how petite she was.

1963 Rogue magazine described her: "5ft 5 and 120 pounds of determination"
