5’8 is a ridiculous claim since she definitely didn’t look a full 5 inches taller than 5’3 linda, she looked only 3 inches taller than her, she looked about 4 inches shorter than franco, and looked 7 inches shorter than her 6’1 co-star so 5’8 range is out the window.

her figure can trick you into thinking she’s 5’7 but i can’t see it? she doesn’t look 4 inches taller than linda so unless james is actually 5’11, her co-star is 6’2, and linda is 5’4 then i could believe 5’7 but none of them are that tall. if she was 5’7 the her height in shoes would be 5’8 which i can’t really see

however i will say if linda is 5’3 flat then busy is 5’6 flat.

Hard to believe she is less than 5'7. She looks really tall in the last season of Kimmy Schmidt.

For me 5'8" is hard to believe but 5'6" is not! I like her name!

Rob, isn't it possible that she did get measured at 5'8? I mean, maybe it is just ego and image selling, but, when you are measured by other people it can be quite off. Can't it? Using myself as exemple, everytime I measure myself I get around 172.5 cm, though, I got measured at the doctors last year and got 174 cm! This year I got a new job, and it's policy if the company to make a medical check up of the new employees, and I got measured 170cm. I was barefoot in all of the measurements and I have ok posture. So, from my experience it could be an honest mistake (though, I don't believe it is in most celebs cases)

Xuxa, it seems hard to believe Busy is 5ft something like Freaks & Geeks she certainly didn't look 5 inches taller than linda cardellini.

Hey Rob. In the last season of Dawson's Creek, Busy said she was about 5 foot 7. Now on twitter she says 5 foot 8? Is it common for a 5 foot 6 girl to think they are 5 foot 8? Seems a little Glen-esque to me.
Editor Rob
J.Lee, it is common for many famous people to give an inflated height, especially further into their career. Sometimes their ego becomes a bit inflated, as does their proclamation of their stature.

Their image is how they make their money.

BUT, being honest about height, regardless of whether you are tall or short is a great quality.

She does look a bit taller than Couteney cox in cougar town so I could see 5'6

I think she can pull off to be 5'8 she looks pretty tall.

Maybe 5'6 and a half? She has nice curves and is not super skinny like typical Hollywood girls, giving her a more feminine body and possibly making her appear to be shorter/stockier than she actually is. This kind of body type can be deceiving

She looks like she is 5'10 with heels on but I belive she is 5'3 1/2
