@Rob, in the film Dead Again (1991) her passport states 5 ft 6 and 126 pounds. Might be worth mentioning above.

Rob can you add The Tall Guy? Mmm, looked a bit shorter than this with Jeff Goldblum. In one scene she's in heels and he's barefoot and it still looked 7-8 inches diff!

Rob out of curiosity how did you settle on the .075 listing?
[Editor Rob: I thought she fell in that 172 range more than 173]

She towered over dustin hoffman in last chance harvey. 5 foot 8. I was surprised how tall she was. I always thought she was average height. 165cm.

About 5'8, but was wearing 2.75 heels so looked about 5'10

5'7.75 is very accurate for her

I meant 2 and half inches NOT 5 of course! :P Sorry!

Of course not THAT much!But I really do think she's at least 5'8.

She definitely looked 5'8 in Sense And Sensibility with the 5'6 Kate Winslet! There were many parts where she looked at least 5 and half inches, or more, taller than Kate. So I think that height is correct. Not under 172 cm, no way!

She besides Kate Beckinsale, who is 5'8''

She was 5'8, but maybe she's shrunk half-an-inch given her age. She is not 5'5.
