How tall is Brenda Strong

Brenda Strong's Height

6ft 0 (182.9 cm)

American actress best known for her role on Desperate Housewives. In film she can be seen in Starship Troopers and Red Dragon. In the Dallas Decoder she talked about being tall growing up saying "I was called 'Too-Tall Jones.' I was called 'Stretch.' I was 5-foot 11 by eighth grade, so I definitely was conscious of being tall. I was also conscious of the fact that I was not only the tallest girl, but I was taller than most of the boys. So that definitely made me self-conscious as a young woman, but I never did that thing where you hunch over to hide or pretend that you're not tall."

@Rob.(I know this might be silly),but I have some curiosity and wanna know If this woman would edge Sergio Ramos out or not (I chose Ramos because he is a solid 6'0" man), so what would you say?
Editor Rob
I think at least in her 30's she looked an honest 6ft...maybe in last few years she has looked a weak 6ft at times.

I think she is 5'11" range. 5'11.5" or maybe 5'11.75" max.
This woman is a GIANT!

He's hardly 1 or 1.5" taller than her if she's standing straight.If she's 6'3 in heels then he's 6'4-4.5 in shoes and 6'3-3.5 barefeet.Add to this the fact that Brenda is in her late 50's so likely has lost something like 0.5"then the listing coincides perfectly for Henri,no more than 6'3.He's 24 now so I assume this listing must be there since some years,it would be surprising that they kept somone underlisted for so long.

Click Here Her son Zak Henri next to her was listed at 6'3 but i hardly see him under 6'5 with shoes on. Brenda probably had standard 3" heels still look at least 2" lower than her son.

Click Here: those pair of heels hardly drop below 8.25cm (3.25") while my wife had a same pair which give about 8.4cm she wear with a measurement. Brenda still look 2" under Zak but maybe she drop a fraction posture with her right leg standing wide out a little. Still shes suppposed to be 6'3.25" with this heels on when stand straight and her son probably not lower than 6'4 barefoot but listed 6'3 at imdb which is interesting.

I think Rob should give Zak Henri a page.

On the Starship Troopers audio commentary Casper Van Dien describes her as 6'5", although he may have exaggerated on purpose.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Apr/18
Her son is very tall like 6'3-6'3.5".

Brenda Strong is 6ft strong!

She was born in 1960. By the time she was 18 the average height for young men was 5'9. She must've felt really, really tall.
Importer said on 27/Dec/16
If she is 6ft barefoot..

Hear me out male cod players that ain't 6ft, I say "Humiliation" . I would be dwarfed by her in heels lol if she is indeed 6ft.
jacob said on 8/Dec/16
She looks 180 cm, 5 11 not an inch more
Alex said on 5/Feb/16
She's 180

Tunman, Adriana maybe is 6'0.5" but I don't think she is as tall as 6'0.75" or even 6'1"...
About Monica, she appears next to rob (in the picture) as a 6'2" lady...of course, she had heels on but Rob said there weren't high heels...6'0.5" for her is likelier than 6'0 flat, IMO
About Brigitte, is a funny debate...of course she's in the 6' zone more than 5'11"...you can check it on Facebook (on Kristanna Loken's page)...Kristanna took a picture with Brigitte: we don't know which kind of shoes they had and Kristanna had worst posture, but the American actress looks 2" shorter than Brigitte and she's a flat 180 cms girl...
IMO for Brigitte 5'11.75" and 6' are fifty fifty but if I have to choose one mark I would say 5'11.75"!
Tunman said on 2/Jul/15
@Stature
No way 10%of norwegian girls will be 6'+ somewhere between 99 and 99,5%
Boys are probably around 58-60%
Tunman said on 2/Jul/15
@Judd
agree on almost all of them
Nielsen won't be under 5'11.75 it's more likely 6' mark that was rounded down to 182.
Monika Schnarre could be both 183 and 184 maybe 6'0.25 is bang on?
Adriana however won't be 6'0-0.25.Actually she could easily push 6'1 looking.
She was almost always described as 185,except once 184 on TV.Someone said on another site that she claimed 184,5 so it could be the exact mark.No less than 6'0.5
Judd said on 22/May/15
an argument that interested me from a lot of time is the "giant women"...maybe because i know a couple of girls who are in the 6' zone and they seem to be giant.
IMO, if we study the range of women listed there in the 6' zone (so between 5'11.5" to 6'0.5") i would say that a great percentage of their listings are correct, but i do not share all of them. for example:

Famke Janssen: rob listed her at 5'11.5" but i think she's a flat 182 cms girl, so 5'11.75" would be better.
Terry Farrell: 5'11.75" for her is absolutely a nice christmas present. she's more 5'11-11.25" instead of almost 6'.
Uma Thurman: 5'11.25" is a fair listing (although she maybe would be more a strong 5'11").
Kristanna Loken: i share her listing at 100%.
Ana Ivanovic: i share her listing at 100%.
Elle MacPherson: i share her listing at 100%.
Kathryn Bigelow: i share her listing at 100%.
Saffron Burrows: it's not impossible that she might be a honest 6', but i think she's more a 182 cms girl. 5'11.5-11.75" sounds better for her. Same as Famke.
Geena Davis: 6' is realiable at her peak (maybe she was 182,5 cms at worst). today she looks more 5'11.75".
Brigitte Nielsen: anything under 5'11.5" for her. 6' also for her is reliable, but we can't ignore that in the GWR she has been listed "182 cms".
Ireland Baldwin: she's more 5'11.5" than 6' i think.
Brenda Strong: 6' is reliable.
Andee Frizzell: i share her listing at 100%.
Venus Williams: i share her listing at 100%.
Monika Schnarre: i share her listing at 100%.
Olga Kurkulina: not sure she's a honest 6'0.5" but for sure she's not under 6'.
Adriana Sklenarikova: rob listed her at 6'0.75" but i think she might be more 6'0-0.25", because next to Karembeu she did look a 183-184. maybe 6'0.25" would be better.

@ChuckTheSchmuck
If you believe 6'0 is only the 90 % fractile for Norwegian girls then you're absolutely wrong.
95-98 % fractile is 5'10.
However, a 5'10 girl can definitely pull off looking 6'0 because of their smaller heads, and more slender body type.
6'0 is very VERY tall for a girl. It's equivalent to a genuine 6'5 guy and that is by no means a standard height. We're talking 99.5 % fractile or so.
Unless you went to a school with unusually tall peopl, then you could be right. But I really doubt it

i agree. here in israel there's a girl which is 182 cms tall. she appears like a "giant".
when she wears heels (rarely), she struggles with 6'2-2.5" people in height.
a lot of people think she's like 185-187 cms tall, herself claim to be 184 cms...

"People are so short in America.
In my (Norwegian) high school class, she would`ve been among the tallest girls, but not more than that. I`d say she`d have 10% of the girls around her height, and at least 50% of the boys her height or more. Also, there were at least two guys at 6 feet 6 (me being one of them) and three or four between 6`6 and 6`5." At 6ft, she would have been one of the tallest girls in my school, age 17-19 and I am from Sweden. I had one girl 5'10.5 in my class. Tallest guy in school was probably 6'6-6'7 or something. The white population of USA aren't that much shorter then northern europeans. Don't trust the wikipedia-heights. Many seem exaggerated. I think 5'11 or a little taller, is the average height in all modern, north european countries.

statue, it's not that people in america are short... it's that you scandinavians are quite tall
Judd said on 12/May/15
In SST 2 she didn't look much far from Ed Lauter, so I thing that she's something between 182 cms and 183 cms...both 5'11.75" and 6' are fine, IMO

Beautiful picture of her. Never knew she has such amazing toned en beautiful legs! A true 6 footer.
The Truth said on 11/Sep/13
I dated her back in the early 80's. A true six footer. Probably weighed about 140 or so back then, maybe less. Beautifull eyes in person. Super nice gal. Lost some bust with the birth of her child.

5' 11.5" seems fair

She looks huge next to Eva Longoria

i donno why tall celebs wear high heels..it makes them look like amazons

Brenda is just tall and gorgeous with nice toned legs. Guess 6'0" and about 160 lbs would be right for her
Chiara said on 5/Sep/12
She has way too long legs. I´m a 5´11 girl but my legs are not long. :(
SeinfeldFan said on 13/Jun/12
She also played Sue Ellen Mishki on "Seinfeld" and now stars in the revived "Dallas".
Craig said on 6/Aug/11
5´11".
StanleyB said on 13/Feb/11
She is only 6'0 tall, although she's said she's 5'12" as a joke and who ever thought she was 170lbs is on crack. She looks thin like she is more around 135-140. She does yoga, so she is in good shape. She looks taller because she always wears heels.

Eva Longoria is just too tiny to be compared with someone like Brenda Strong. Eva is 5'0" & abt 90 lbs whereas Brenda is 6'0" and abt 170 lbs. There is a pic on Getty Images where the 5'6" Felicity Huffman is carrying Eva easily in her arms, so u can imagine what Brenda could do with tiny Eva
taferon said on 12/Apr/09
Brenda Strong looks about 6'2-6'3! She's definitely over 3 inches taller than Garcelle Beauvais who is 5'10 check the link Click Here
she looks a foot taller than eva longvaria
Click Here
what do you think she weighs though?
looks 170 to me
595 said on 29/Mar/09
Looks 176-177cm in the pic. It could be her structure that gives her the illusion of bein 6 foot and the heels as well.
Maribel said on 10/Oct/08
It could just the hair makin her look taller, but look at this pic with Michael Bolton who's 5"9 and Nicollette Sheridan, who's 5"7.5
Click Here
So Brenda is probably more like 5'10 or 10.5 at the most.
Jack said on 4/Jul/08
So tall and beautiful! Check this video out. She's at least 6'0", maybe 6'1", plus heels. She absolutely towers over all of the guys in the video. She's truly an amazon!

Looks about 0.75" to 1" taller than Patrick Swayze, which would make her 5'11".

She looks 6'1''at least.

HAHA in Anonymas' pic she is TOWERING over poor eva.
Anonymous said on 9/May/07
I dunno man. I don't doubt she could be 5'11.5 or 6'. Well indeed I do, when I see pictures like this one:

Click Here

She's got to be 6'1 or 6'0.5 at least I mean the top of the head of 5'1 Longoria reaches up to her shoulders height. I dunno, she looks gigantic. 30 or 29 centimeters of difference.
Emily said on 22/Jun/06
DH season finale has only just been shown over here (UK). I was surprised how much taller she seemed than Bree but in one scene when they're together you can see Bree is wearing flats. Maybe Brenda is in heels?
lishanne said on 23/May/06
I think she is huge and about 185 cm. I just watched D.H. season two final. She looks twice bigger than Susan Mayer and much taller than Bree who list her height as 174 cm.
