Bo certainly looked taller dancing with 5ft2.5 Dudley Moore in '10'! I thought she was 5ft4, according to the sources I've had my mitts on!
Mind you, some people do round up and she might have had two different height measurements at differing times of the day, and a quarter of an inch is well possible as we all know by now!
I'm going for the 5ft4 I always thought she was because of the dancing scene with Dudley in '10'!

Very beautifull women with expressive and beautiful eyes, no matter of her height.

She was absolutely gorgeous in 10. literally an 11 out of 10. Too bad she couldn't act. LOL in nearly every subsequent role she got a Golden Raspberry award for worst actress. One of those who amazingly had a high profile career with only one successful film.

Yeah she's the sort you'd expect to be a model 5'9 or 5'10!!!

Not too bad looking,but just like with Crazy Elephant and The DeFranco Family,she ended up one of those "one hit" wonders. Yet 5'3" Derek is pretty,in pants or gowns. And "10" she was nice in. She's okay,and I'm comfortable with her 5'3" height.

some peoples body makes them look taller or shorter than they are.

Having slim flat hips/bum helps, makes average height women look taller, eg, Miley Cyrus, Tina Turner

Wow. Five foot three and a bit? Really? She's proportioned like somebody taller. Bo Derek is a miniature tall woman.

Bo Derek is 5'3",107 pounds,a nice,smooth,comfortable weight for 5'3" women. Though she sputtered after "10",she's a sweet woman who's delightful in her tan khaki pants,"sheer to the waist" nude pantyhose,blue blouse,and black ankle strap sandals she wears in the picture I have of size 4 Petite Derek.It's a smooth,comfortable look that's nice on Derek. Ironically,I saw "10" the night before my sister married Dennis. Dennis went with me. 5'3" Derek has smooth,slender legs and hips and is sweet,too. Ironically,why I like Derek is due to her December 12 birthday,also 5' Cathy Rigby's birthday. Cathy is pretty,too,and though anorexic,she overcame that and a sickly childhood (croup,pneumonia,whooping cough) because she was born prematurely because her mommy was hit by polio during her pregnancy with Cathy. Cathy's also conquered crippling shyness,but she's still soft spoken and quiet. Also,Cathy had another embarrassing moment one time in 1976 when Charles Nelson Reilly squawked that "Match Game" host Gene Rayburn was allergic to Cathy because he sneezed every time he questioned Cathy,but he was allergic to the dust on the stage,not Cathy.

Bo is small but well proportioned,still she was stunning in her youth,the listing sounds right,i'm impressed she didnt try to add a couple inches like most actresses do.

Wow, I seriously thought she was like 5'10"! She had a really long slender torso, and had supermodel-like proportions like Claudia Schiffer or Christy Turlington who are legit 5'10"/11" 'ers...

Yes, I met her once and she is very short and skinny, no butt, no hips,Not what you would call a 10.

i've always imagined her being much taller than 5'3" id say id imaginered her being 5'7", 5'8" maybe

Bo Derek is like Paula Abdul or Christina or Shania etc.. You see them and go "what is this?, I expect much taller". It is all in the camera angles and the press is usually touchy about height because most are short themselves and don't like mentioning it. I would have bet anything Bo was 5' 9" from movies etc.

I know.I thought she was 5-10 or something.had no clue.

Wow. I would have bet serious money she was atleast 5'7"! She seems to have really long legs and arms though. It's weird that she was chosen to play in the film 10 since she's well below average height and that would be a deterrent for being rated a perfect "10" in most people's eyes.

I thought she was at least 5-7.

She lives on horses. She wears big heel horse riding boots. Madonna swears by them. They add 4" with ease.

I think her shorter height was one of the reasons she was cast in "10" next to Dudely Moore.
Regus said on 25/Sep/06
Really?!? I always pictured her as being TALL--5-8 or so. Dang. Talk about proportional and good framing.
