Bette Midler's Height
5ft 1 (154.9 cm)
American singer and actress, known for Beaches, The Rose, Hocus Pocus and The First Wives Club. In Rolling Stone she once commented, "The biggest misconception is my height. Everybody thinks I'm six feet one. They're always saying, "You're so short" or, "You're not what I expected" or, better yet, "Where is she?" That's always a good one."

The quotes above surprise me, I wouldn't have expected Bette to be tall. Her voice is 12'6' though! Gorgeous singer!

On the Oprah-Show she says she is 5ft 2 ! So why is she listed 5ft 1 here? I think that 5ft 2 is more accurate, don't you think?

For instance, check this interview with Michael Buble (5'10), featuring Bette Midler: Click Here
Her head looks longer than his; and he doesn't have a small head.

My comment was meant more humorous than anything else, but is there really a correlation of a bigger head size and brain size? I'm one of the bigger headed people too and watched some more stuff with Bette Midler and her big head just stands out to me so much and i'm just so fascinated by head sizes. lol

Funny you should say that Chris, as my head is the size of a peanut. Anyway, I would bet that Bette is one of the smartest people in show business, because she is effortlessly funny and confident in interviews. Madonna claims an I.Q. of 140, but gives one humorless, self-conscious interview after another. If Madonna had said she was six feet two, I'd believe that sooner than the I.Q. 140 claim.

I just looked at Oscars red carpet pictures, and her big head was the first thing i noticed as well. But thats good, having a big head means a big brain!

I just saw her on the 2014 Oscars, and she's so oddly proportioned that she seems to have been assembled from parts of different people. Her head is almost as long as her upper arms.

I agreee, i exepected her to be atleast 5'3' because she looked really quite tall in hocus pocus

Incredible... Really expected her to be at least 5'3' like my mom who has a similar figure and is real tiny

She seemed tall in "Houcus Pocus " compared to the rest of the cast so I was surprised to here she is as tall I am .
