BB absolutely looks tall enough in almost all her pictures. She looks tall enough but at the same time fragile like a doll. Rob do you think that 166 cm is a downgrade for her from the Google and websites. I truly think she was a strong 5'6 168.0 to 168.5 cm when she was younger. And too it doesn't make sense she's the same height as Marilyn Monroe, when BB clearly looks more lean and has taller neck and femurs, body proportions overall, her body is simply much better and feminine. BB is magnifique.

Rob, would you mind taking a quick skim through the below video and telling me whether you conclude Michel Piccoli is more 5’11.5” or 5’11.75”?

He is looking somewhere around 182, whether strong or not is debatable.

Interesting post from Marianne Lulu. Interesting to see that she's described herself at 168 cms. But she was described as 166 cms in the movie "En effeuillant la marguerite", and the script was written by her husband...who must have known his wife's height. Bardot's peak must been between 166 and 168.

There was almost five inches between very worthy add Jean-Claude Brialy and Brigitte Bardot in Famous Love Affairs.

Jean-Claude Brialy- 5’10.25”
Brigitte Bardot- 5’5.5” (Bonne Anniversaire Brigitte!)

Rob, does Ventura look under, on or over 5’7” with Bardot, assuming she has no heels on here?

Editor Rob
Around 5ft 7 there, but if heels he could be taller.

Can look easy 5ft 8 with her.
Sinclair said on 11/Jun/22
Yes, 5'5.5" is ideal for Bardot's peak. Very similar to Catherine Deneuve's height.
Nena said on 22/Jan/21
Fyi, thats not Alain Delon.
Alexie said on 13/Aug/20
Doesn't Brigitte look more like 5'7" here next to 5'10" Alain Delon?

Many Happy Returns to the legend Brigitte Bardot, who turns 85 today. Bless her for all the good work she does as an animal rights campaigner.

5ft6 peak height. 😁💐

I think she need an upgrade to 168.9 cm. She looks like tall woman.

Bardot was 168 cm tall barefoot!
Anonymous said on 13/Dec/17
Bardot was 1,69 m
Lanaka said on 30/Apr/17
@mande2013 Yes! I believe this listing is too low for Brigitte at her peak! She really was 5'6 to even 5'6.5!
mande2013 said on 15/Feb/17
If Bardot was only 1m66 peak, then Jean-Luc Godard couldn't have been more than 5'6.25 or so. There's an archival photo taken on the set of Le Mepris with the two of them side by side, and it's pretty revealing. I can't find it on the net anywhere. I saw it in some coffee table book on Godard's work. In short, I think BB may have in fact been at least 5'6.

When I was a naive 14-year-old girl, I found a pretty, shiny magazine down a long footpath! I brought it home and found that it was 'one of those' magazines! It contained 'Brigitte Bared' and 'Andress Undressed' amongst its offerings! It was in that magazine that I read she was 5ft6 and 8st2lbs, though I can think of more, rather reliable sources!
I couldn't work out why some of the pages were stuck together, and that's the honest truth!
anyonmious said on 29/Dec/16
She is 5'4" for her peak height. May be 5'3" today
Sixseven said on 27/Dec/16
She is 168 cm.
mande2013 said on 6/Oct/16
Rob, what sort of height difference do you see between Bardot and Picasso here: Click Here. Granted, Picasso's old there and could have lost some height by that point, but he looks a weak 5'4 there if this listing for BB is correct IMO.
Editor Rob
I'd have said she was at least 3 inches taller taking account that the angle is in Pablo's favour there.

I saw the film ANd God Created Brigette Bardot (1956), and i saw her dancing and walking and calculated that she was somewhere between 5'5 and 5'6. I decided to choose 5'5. It would seem i was right. Figuring her weight at 115 to 120 pounds i was kind of close.
I'm surprised no one mentioned her resembelnce here to Claudia Schiffer who is way taller at 5'9 or 10?
In School i sort of knew someone who looked like Brigette but her personality was quite the opposite.
Cliff said on 22/May/16
Rob, she was often listed as 166 cm in the late 50s and early 60s. From photographic evidence, this is what she looks. So I think she's around an inch shorter than your listing.
Editor Rob
yes, the 166 in the biography makes more sense.
Hypado said on 23/Jun/15
Brigitte Bardot's height is 5ft 6.5in (169 cm)

Looks this next to Marcello Mastroianni.
a said on 7/May/15
she looks a couple inches shorter than her costar Trintignant from Et Dieu Crea la Femme (1.72m or 5'7 3/4"). Maybe about 2-3in less.

I've recently seen 'Les grandes manoeuvres' where a very young Bardot appears opposite Michèle Morgan. I know for a fact Michèle was 163 cm (she mentions it herself in her autobiography 'Avec ces yeux-là'. For those who want to see it, BB looks barely taller in the movie (if any).

Sadly, this is the best shot I can find:

Maybe Michèle had a footwear advantage, but if BB's official biography mentions her as 166 cm, then I believe it.

Here she's with 5'7" Anouk Aimée:

Rob, 5-7 or 5-6 and 125 or 121 lbs ?

Editor Rob
anywhere in 120's range is possible, I know she got called both 5ft 6 and 7 probably equally.
Sam said on 19/Dec/14
Wow, sheer dresses are something else :=)

No image above although a photo is listed there, a shame.
Editor Rob
I put one up that works now ;)
Andrea2 said on 5/Apr/14
pierric, I believe the article states 1.66 meters which equals 5f5. Which sounds right to me.
Also, her weight is listed at 53kg which equals 116. Also looks perfect.
pierric said on 16/Dec/13
She was described at 166 cms and 53 kgs when "Viva Maria" was realised in 1965. Read this article :

Adding further to my previous comment, Thea Bjerkan Charriere also showed my daughter memorobilia of her grandmother Brigitte. Her measurements from And God Created Woman were recorded as 165cm, 48 kg.
Ingrid Jensen said on 14/Feb/13
My daughter went to school in Norway with BB's granndaughter Thea Bjerkan Charriere. She told my daughter that Brigitte was only 165cm tall in her youth. Thea is a tall & slender girl, but neither of BB's grangaughters are a fraction as beautiful as her.

no he didnt just stating what i saw.i was weird how phil and rick were so much taller than me this time.
Sara said on 7/Oct/07
Phil never presented himself as if he was bothered by his height, despite the girlfriends-du-jour and/or the fans he was posing with in pictures. He may possibly wear lifts, but I've seen no evidence of it. He seems as if he's comfortable/confident with who he is, height and whatever else. And when asked, he openly admits to his actual height measurements. Doesn't look like he has an issue with it, in my opinion. =/
On a side note, the whole band is vertically challenged, except for Joe, who is of average male height.
Franco said on 7/Sep/07
haha nah, its you that lost height Glenn :D
Glenn said on 15/Sep/06
Vivian is 5-6.and Phil was mysteriously an inch taller than me last year,and Allen appeared a couple inches taller.both in sneakers that had lifts I suspect.Phils girlfriend was 5-10.maybe the reason for the lifts.
Lmeister said on 14/Sep/06

- Joe Elliott 6'1.5''
