@jim Sorry but she is not 5'5', she is taller than you lol i met her and im 5'10 and she was almost as tall as me and she was wearing flip flops with no heel.
2F2F said on 23/May/14
I met her and took a pic with her. Im 5'10, was wearing shoes with less than an inch of heel, and she was wearing flip flops and was almost my exact height. She is awesome and tall!

of course he is tall, she is 5ft9 or thereabouts, 5ft9 is solid tall for a woman.

No way Catherine is 5'5", maybe she wants to be but definitely she s not that height. I've seen her on location during Army Wives and she is very tall, I'd say 6 feet.
jim said on 24/Feb/13
I worked season 3 on Army Wives with her...very nice girl btw, but she is only about 5'5" or 5'6".. I'm 5'8" and in our scenes together it's very obvious.
Cristi said on 13/Nov/12
Please Catherine Bell is taller than 175cm! My best friend is that height, no way she is as tall as my friend, because my husband met Catherine last year and he was impressed by how tall she was, and her daugther (born in 2003) was very tall too. Nothing wrong with being a tall woman.

I know her stand in....Catherine is 5'9"
Marianita said on 20/Sep/11
Agree, Catherine is a TALL girl. 5'6" means she is almost as tall as Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox who are like 5'5" - 5'4", pleaseee she is WAY taller these actresses! She may want to be shorter but she is NOT, sorry.

No way she's 5'6". She's an amazon.
Charleston Write said on 20/Jun/11
Cat is only about 5'6. I have worked with her on Army Wives, and I am 5'8, and I was taller than her by a few inches.
Mariana said on 24/Feb/11
I also think Catherine is taller than 5'9", she must be 6 feet. And she is right, because she tends to act with taller men most people think she is shorter. Definitely 6 feet in my opinion, but I guess she prefers to state she is shorter.

No way 5'8.5". Even above 5'9". How about buying that?
cjt92530 said on 1/Dec/08
She is 5' 8.5" actually. Unless she has had bone extensions put into her legs, that is how tall she is. You can take that to the bank.
Big King said on 13/Oct/08
Whenever I see 5'10" for a woman, I have to think of Catherine Bell.
Big King said on 8/Sep/08
Catherine Bell has shoe size 10 (42 to us Europeans). What do you say about her feet?
Big King said on 7/Sep/08
Especially the female celebrities are well known for downgrading their heights. Maybe it would be a further solution to put Catherine Bell to 5'9 1/2" but 5'10" is her true height!
Big King said on 4/Sep/08
Yeah, 5'10 1/2" or maybe 5'11" but 5'10 1/2" could be her height.
Big King said on 4/Sep/08
Catherine is one of these actors who are downgrading their heights. 5'9" is a lie! She already got measured 5'10" so where's the problem?
M.P. said on 7/May/08
She's pretty big, so I think she's lying. She's probably 5'10" 1/2 and he's probably only 6'2"-6'3".

Scottish-Iranian-American born in London....quite a mix
Ruja said on 21/Mar/08
Also 5'10" is downgraded. Catherine Bell's height is 5'11"!
said on 20/Mar/08
Rob, on which website of Catherine Bell, she said 5'9"? I don't believe that she may be only 5'9". She is 5'10" and she looks that tall. Bell is one of the hottest girls in the world. But I would also agree if we could change Bell's height to 5'9 1/2".
[Editor Rob: what I say above, 'from her own website'.]

My little sister meet her in England awhile back, She is 6' even and had a good 3 inches on Bell. Both had on similar shoes so 5'9" sounds about right.
Franco said on 22/Dec/06
i like how everyone says 5'10 and she corrects them saying i'm only 5'9.
honest? or just down-grading herself because tall women aren't as appreciated unless it is Playboy and Pr0n? hmmm
she looks 5'9 and since she most of the time got some good size shoes she looks more taller.
regardless i beat her anyday. im 6'4 (1'93cm) with no shoes mmmmuahahaha tower over everyone. :D
women respond like these in most cases :
if shorter than what is being mentioned, they would say "i'm ONLY blah blah"
if taller they are taller than mentioned, they would say "i'm a BIT taller blah blah"
it's just a way to say things, it doesn't mean they are short or tall. :)
Zapp Brannigan said on 27/Sep/06
Like she said, David James Elliot is huge, so she looks short next to him.
DutchGirl said on 1/Sep/06
nah, I definitely don't feel short, we Dutch people might be tall, but not so many women are taller than I'm :)

"I am ONLY 5'9? What does that mean? ONLY...? Last time I checked 5'9" is above average for American and English women...
[Editor Rob: because a lot of magazines went to an erm 'source' and wrote 5ft 10 a lot, she doesn't want an inch more than she is]
Anonymous said on 10/Mar/06
To DutchGirl: Even at 6 ft u must feel short, cos dutch girls are all so tall
CelebHeights Editor said on 13/Jan/06
"As a 5-foot-10 woman, what's the shortest a guy could be to go out with you?"
Catherine: "Well, I'm only 5-9, but everyone prints it wrong"
Titmouse said on 23/Dec/05
She is much taller than Kelly Preston (5'7), but little bit shorter than Jenna Elfman (5'10).
Gigy said on 20/Jun/05
Wow, I thought she was at least 178 cm/5'10!
If this info is true, than I am taller than her (I am 176.5 cm tall) by half an inch!
[Editor Rob: she said it herself...5ft 9, and she looks it, but sometimes wearing big heels and her figure can give her the look of an extra inch]
