American actress best known for starring in tv series Moonlighting. In film she has appeared in The Last Picture Show, Taxi Driver, The Heartbreak Kid, At Long Last Love, Silver Bears, The Lady Vanishes, Hard Luck and Texasville. A 1972 news article mentioned she was a "5-foot, 8 1/2-inch Memphis belle who broke into films after being chosen 1969 Fashion Model of the Year."
. In a 1982 article it mentioned she was "130 pounds - after her childbirth"
and Cybill herself said "I had an agent once who used to bug me all the time about my big rear end. I mean, do I have a big rear end? I'm big. I'm 5-foot-8½, I have good shoulders."

You always think other people are pefect. If they only knew!
I have tremendously broad shoulders and long arms and the clothes never fit and that gives me a very big inferiority complex.
I'm five feet eight and a half inches, and I weigh one hundred and thirty pounds. That's enormous for a model.

Cybill with Bruce Willis in the 1980s: she is wearing sneakers and actually looks almost as tall as Bruce. She was certainly at least 5'8" in her prime, and possibly even taller than that. Obviously, all sorts of tricks were used during the filming of Moonlighting to make her appear shorter.

I knew Cybill was tall as she was famously a model, wasn't she?
I remember thinking back in the 70's that she gave some credibility to what I actually considered to be an old bag's name! She was anything but, being tall and extremely attractive!
Cybill gets the full 5ft8!

Rob can you add The Heartbreak Kid, At Long Last Love, Silver Bears, The Lady Vanishes and Hard Luck? She was very beautiful in the 70s in particular!!

Tall yes but I didn't think she looked all that 'smoking' in 'the lady vanishes'.

Yes, she was distracting hot back in the day in Taxi Driver & The Last Picture Show...and looked about an inch shorter than De Niro when he held good posture.

About this. And smoking hot in particular in The Last Picture Show, way hotter than any of the American Pie girls, a similar sort of film except for the toilet humour.

Definitely looked exactly 5'8" next in Taxi Driver next to De Niro who was 5'9 at the time.

well, I think 5'8" is fair for her comparing her height to others in movies

On The L Word, Cybill is looking slightly under 5'8".
