Rob, at 9:24, who could have the edge out of Michel Piccoli and Jean Sorel?

Very possibly only 5’5.5”, especially when compared to Jean-Claude Brialy, who was 5’10” at the very least.

167cm peak I would have thought...

Seventeen years after Catherine's claim to measuring in at 170cm, she still looks that height to me! I'm watching 'The Hunger' and Catherine plays the wife of a rapidly-ageing David Bowie. They do a shower scene together,
at the beginning, before David starts growing old in a matter of hours.

He is taller than her, but the difference isn't as stark as that between David and Susan Sarandon, who was 5ft6/6.25 peak height.

Seeming as there is the one box, I'm compelled to give Catherine 5ft7!

Excellent film, and rather sad too. 😒

Many Happy Returns of the Day to Catherine, who turns 76 today. I saw her in 'The Hunger' with David Bowie at a special showing at a cinema club I used to belong to - brilliant!

5ft6 for this class act of an actress.

1 m 57 for Isabelle Huppert.

What I think Deneuve = 168 peak, 165 now. Huppert 159 peak, 157 now...

Pierric said on 1/Feb/17
Some French sites are looking for a stand-in of Deneuve and want 166 cms women...Is it a good information Rob ???

Pierric, it is likely what she is today.
Pierric said on 23/Jan/17
Rob, again, for Isabelle Huppert I found a 1990 article where she is listed at...152 cms. Hmmmm ???

Read at the fifth ligne :
"Isabelle la blonde, la rousse ou la brune, bout'chou d'1 m 52 avec ses Γ©ternelles tΓ’ches de rousseur" ("Isabelle the blonde, the redhead or the brown, 1 m 52 bout'chou with its eternal freckles")
In French "bout'chou" or "bout de chou" means "very little".

is she really just 5ft, at a glance I might have thought 5ft 1.

Belle de Jour is definitely her signature role and I think should be mentioned first.

Agree with Hypago.

Catherine Deneuve

Peak: 168cm
Now: 166cm
Shar said on 7/Mar/14
Years ago I'd always read she was 5'3"-5'4". Short legs, short body.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jan/14
She looks 5'6 range in Repulsion, I came here guessing 169 actually. She might be 5'5" but she looked above average in the mid 60s.
pierric said on 15/Jul/13
I often see her in the sixth "arrondissement" of Paris, where we live. She's around 165 cms nowadays.
David said on 24/Nov/12
Sas her 3 or 4 Times in Paris I would say 5'5 Max
Heike said on 2/Oct/11
In Potiche, Gerard Depardieu completely towered over her, who was wearing 3'' pumps. In 8 Femmes she didn't look much taller than the petite 5'3 Isabelle Huppert, and both were wearing same heels. So 5-4'' seems about right.
Liesbling said on 29/Sep/11
There's a scene in 8 Femmes where she stood face to face with the reportedly 5'4 Emmanuelle Beart and she had one inch over Emmanuelle. They were both wearing same heels. I've also studied her figure in a number of movies, and she's of average height. Any claim below 5'4 is ridiculous.

I agree with both of you. A friend of mine once stood up close to her and Deneuve was slightly shorter than my friend's height of 5'4 1/2". They were apparently both wearing medium high heels at the time.

Noo, she's 164 cm! No more.
Arnault said on 29/Jun/07
Saw her at the Cannes Film Festival several times over the years, and I can honestly tell you she is hardly over 5'4. She never was over 5'5 when she was young so the 5'7 height was pure fabrication. But then why should French actors be different from the American ones when exagerating height??
