How tall is Famke Janssen

Famke Janssen's Height

5ft 11 ½ (181.6 cm)

Dutch Actress best known for roles in movies like the X-Men films, Taken, Goldeneye, Deep Rising, The Faculty and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. She said in "8 Days" that "I feel like a mutant all the time. I mean, I'm a Dutch person in America. I'm 5-foot 11!" and that "Height is a big problem. There's not a lot of tall men around and they don't really want to admit their actual height", maybe much the same way Famka herself might drop 1/2 inch because in 2008 she said "I'm 5' 11 1/2 as I proudly say...just so I don't have to say six feet."

5’11.75 - 5’11 7/8,” but 6’ in prime easily.

Jean Grey
Famke - almost 6'0
Sophie Turner almost 5'9
Haley Ramm - 5'3(Ironic since Jean is almost 6'0 in the comics)

Geena Davis is prob not over 5'11 1/2 now and Famke look kind of 5'11 1/4 to me maybe just a fraction lost.

A devastating lady, taller than most men, especially in USA.
Gracian said on 9/Jun/18
Sometimes she really looked about six feet when she was younger. Today, at 53-4, she is probably approaching 5'11". Rob, peak height of 5'11.75" and the current height of 5'11.25" is possible for her?
MAD SAM said on 21/May/18
Solid 182 cm she totally suites with Liam Neeson in Taken series
Gracian said on 3/Mar/18
She used to look close to 6 feet, sometimes, but I'm not sure she measured it... She always seemed to be ashamed of her own height. I suggest to give she a peak height of 5'11.75" and the current height of 5'11.25". Please, Rob, think about it, I believe that such a list would be better for her.
Alex 6'0 said on 25/Feb/18
5'11.5 but it's close enough to 6'0 to pass for 6'0 easy
Paddy said on 22/Jan/18
Rob, do you think she could actually be 183cm in her prime?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't go that high for her.
Don Julio said on 18/Jan/18
She is truly no more than 182 cm her body shape makes her look taller
Allie said on 26/Dec/17
Rob what are your estimates for her sisters?

Interesting how genes work! They have different hair and eye colors, one has curly hair, and they're both shorter than Famke I think.
Editor Rob: at a rough glance they are between 2-4 inches smaller.
Allie said on 23/Dec/17
Radd, while it is more common for Germanic women to be tall, 5'10 is not an extremely super common height like you put it.

The average ethnic dutch woman is not 5'8-5'9 lol.
Radd said on 14/Dec/17
@Charlie the average for male Dutch is more like 6' and for females 5'7 I can tell you because Im

Thats more including all dutch, remember 22,5% of Dutch are of foreign Background, and more so including many dutch-indonesian mixes that are on census counted as Ethnic Dutch...

The average ethnic Dutch is more likely 6'1 or even 6'1 1/2. Average ethnic dutch woman is more likely to be 5'8 or even 5'8 tp 5'9. 5'10 is an extremely common height For Dutch and Northern European women in general (north german, Danish, Norwegian, etc)

Theres pics of old X Men premieres on gettyimage she seems slightly taller than Rebecca Romjin and James Marsden. A little short compared to Jackman
Allie said on 19/Nov/17
She edged out Rebecca like 15 years ago at the X-Men premiere in similar heels.

She's almost the same height as Hugh Jackman (186.7 cm) in her heels, Jackman is still noticeably taller. I highly doubt she's the average guess on here(182.8cm). I'd say somewhere between 179-180.5cm is more like it. I just don't see the 6ft guessed on here.
tshark said on 6/Sep/17
She directed a movie in Oklahoma several years ago and attended all the audition sessions for every character (even small local roles). She was dressed very casual with flat comfortable shoes. The consensus of everyone in the room was that she was easily over 6'. It was a bit intimidating having the director sit in on local auditions, especially one who can't just disappear into the shadows and watch.
Mateyboy said on 17/Aug/17
Strong 5"11 as opposite to weak 6 foot as she says proudly 5"11 1/2.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Aug/17
Mimi said on 7/Aug/17
Rob, have you met/seen Famke in person?
Editor Rob: yes, she is likely somewhere in 5ft 11-11.5 range

Time to update "I would say that she could be closer to 6ft and is rounding down slightly." then. I had also thought she might be nearer 6 ft.
Editor Rob: yeah that line is a decade old, but the 11.5 mark is quite believable, although there's a very good chance today she would be 11.25 range at 52.
Dmeyer said on 8/Aug/17
Maybe she Lost 1cm since in person she looked more 5'11,5-11,75 more than 5'11-11,5 , she looked à 6 FT men will look she had flip flops 1,3cm type
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/17
Rob I thought nearer 6ft, no?
Editor Rob: not really, looked shorter than Sam Coleman that day!
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 7/Aug/17
@Rob

If she's in the 5'11"-5'11.5" range, then is 5'11.25" a better listing for her?
Mimi said on 7/Aug/17

Those who are thinking that the people in the Netherlands are the tallest of the world are really wrong. I am staying at Bosnia and Herzegovina at the moment and when I walked around the centrum of Sarajevo I had noticed that at least 60% percent of the woman were 5 ft 7 or taller. The most young or older were all taller than me and that while I'm 5 ft 7.5 (171 cm) !
Sarah said on 12/Jul/17
Close to 183
Gracjan said on 6/Jul/17
I think Famke was never so honest about her height, as a woman could always be ashamed of how tall she was. I think the range 5'11¾" or full 6 feet is most likely to her.
Adijos said on 9/Apr/17
Rob, do you think Famke might have been six feet in her youth?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't go with that mark
Adijos said on 19/Mar/17
She's strong 6 ft!
Jp said on 1/Mar/17
Looks 6 ft next to Jackman and Brosnan
ERIC PLEASANT said on 20/Jan/17
Six feet and beautiful, I wonder why she does not have the career that Uma Thurman has. Same height.
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Dec/16
I won't repeat what I just said when I noticed this actress's height! I never expected her to be quite this tall for a minute!
Peter175 said on 4/Dec/16
She is very swarthy and dark for a Dutch woman.

Her height definitely checks out though!
Nik said on 26/Nov/16
@james

They are all smaller than you !
Giorgi said on 25/Nov/16
@james
I guess ALL 5'11 women would be shorter than you since you are 6'1 :)
james said on 25/Nov/16
She looked 5'11 .5 in X Men united .but it doesn't bother me because most 5'11 woman are shorter than me since I'm 6'1
Giorgi said on 14/Nov/16
Man she's exactly my height which is considered huge for a woman but I think some females deride tall women because they're intimidated by them, pretty much like men. She's very tall but easily one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen.
Redwing said on 4/Nov/16
Holy sh*t, she's this tall?! Wow that's really tall for a girl. Haha I feel sorry for whom she dates lol kidding. Itd be even more funny if i were to date a girl who was 6'2 (because she'll be taller than me).
josh jeffords said on 12/Oct/16
Cold be a bit under 6 ft i think she is loosing height already she really wore it well in the 90s.
Brosnan is much shorter than he claims so she may be closer to 5 11 liam absolutely towered over her with loose posture.
She didnt look at all tall in xmen so either some are taller than listed or they were stuffed like hair band jeans.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/16
I think 182/183cm is more likely than 183/184cm
Christopher said on 21/Jul/16
1.81 is more accurate.
Grant said on 19/Jun/16
She is in yet early 50s do you think she would have been taller in say her early 20s?
Editor Rob: always a chance of a fraction lost at her age, some make it to 50's without anything, they have good genes and keep fit/healthy...other women could lose 1-2cm.

@Charlie the average for male Dutch is more like 6' and for females 5'7 I can tell you because Im dutch
charlie said on 25/Jan/16
is 5 foot 11.5 her height with heels? dutch people are tall bt the average dutch woman is 5 foot 5.5 in height and average dutch male is 5 foot 10 inches. Because women wear heels alot o believe Femka is 5 foot 6.5 flat feet and in heels she would be 5 foot 11.5. SHe was on a talk show she had heels on and she was asked ehr height and she said 5 foot 11. her height at the time is 5 foot 11 because shes wearing heels
Editor Rob: it's her barefoot height, she will easily stand well above 6ft in a pair of heels.
Willes190 said on 14/Dec/15
She's 183-184cm barefoot, solid 6ft
Allie said on 26/Nov/15
According to stats though, they're apparent average is only 5'7 if I remember. Besides if you google larget people in n the planet, it's somewhere in Africa if I remember. Average woman is apparently 5'10 and guys are around 6'2-3 iirc.
Bruce 5'11 2/3 said on 24/Nov/15
5'11.75 is feasible Dutch women are among the tallest women in the world
Allie said on 1/Nov/15
Rob do you think she can be a strong 182 sometimes, as in 5'11.75? And the lowest you'd say is 181 cm?
[Editor Rob: at times she does pass for just about six foot, but 5ft 11.5 I feel is ok for her.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/15
Looks 182-183cm
Judd ISR said on 30/Sep/15
Rob she might be in your opinion a lady which close the day averagely at 182,0-181,8 cms for example and on bad day she dip at 181,5-6 cms?
[Editor Rob: I'd say 5ft 11.5 in afternoon and probably not much under that at night really, she may even manage to hold close to the mark.]
Grant said on 29/Sep/15
Would you rule out 6 feet?
[Editor Rob: as a late afternoon height I don't think she would measure that.]
Judd ISR said on 27/Sep/15
Rob in your opinion the best height range for the Dutch lady?

A) 184,5cms/182,5cms
B) 184,0cms/182,0cms
C) 183,5cms/181,5cms
D) 183,0cms/181,0cms
[Editor Rob: between b and c ]
Judd said on 15/May/15
Bishop says on 13/May/15
I agree, Judd. I really can't see Famke measuring shorter than Terry Farrell, even if it is very slight. I would say Famke could be 5'11.5-11.75" and Terry 5'11-11.25 like you said. She doesn't look over it with Rob.

Yeah, overall Terry was straight with her back so very close to her full height!
Bishop said on 13/May/15

Judd said on 11/May/15
I don't understand why rob, who has a great talent to guess the heights of celebs, has listed Famke at 5'11.5" and Terry Farrel at 5'11.75"...Actually I think would be much better 5'11-11.25" for Terry and 5'11.75" for Famke...no offense rob, that's just my point of view, I actually don't understand those two listings...
NY said on 10/May/15
Just walked past her in Soho as she was walking her dog. I'm roughly 6'1" and she's definitely almost 6 feet.
joe 193cm night said on 6/Apr/15
5´11.75
Judd said on 31/Jan/15
personally 5'11.75" is the best (or perfect listing) for her!

i guess she's in the 6'0.5" just woke up and in the 181,8-182,2 cms range on the second part of the day...
Judd said on 7/Jan/15
I Belive dmeyer's words! Maybe she's not a full 6' but she's close to it...
I would say 5'11.5-11.75" or precisely 182 in cms!
Sarah said on 4/Jan/15
Also you might want to add Hemlock Grove to her credits! :)
Sarah said on 29/Dec/14
Rob, possible 5'11.5 in the morning and 5'11 at night? She is still very tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Dec/14
She looks to be closing in on 6ft
Mike said on 19/Dec/14
Rob can you add the X-Men film series and the Taken films? Liam Neeson towered her in Taken. 5ft 11.25-11.5 nightime and 6ft in the morning. She's honest about her height at least she doesn't claim 6ft 2 like Gil Birmingham!
Dmeyer said on 14/Dec/14
In person was Max 4.5in shorter than near who had solid 0.6-0.7in more shoes so just 4in shorter
Yep said on 14/Dec/14
She is 6 feet flat.
Dmeyer said on 25/Nov/14
I had 1in shoes she had 0.5in she seemed same height so 6ft is possible
Judd said on 24/Nov/14
I think she's between 5'11.5" and 5'11.75"...if you prefer metric system, than she could be a honest 182 cm in my opinion.
Hypado said on 13/Oct/14
This, Famke Janssen is 182cm, no doubt.
M.P. said on 29/Sep/14
Jeez! I always thought she was only 5'10" or so. Or maybe I'm just getting her confused with her American counterpart, Bridget Moynahan. Either way, Famke Janssen is a GIANT!

Even Dutch girls are only 5'7" on average, so she'd be big even in her homeland. The American equivalent of a female 5'11.5" would be an even 5'9", which is still considered a tall woman in the US.
Alex 6'0 said on 6/Jul/14
Looks near enough 6'0. Her claiming 5'11 is surely rounding down. I wouldn't put her below 5'11.5
Slaya said on 17/Jan/14
Hey Rob.On the photo above she looks more 66-7kg Isn't it ROB?
I also want to know if you're gonna "reactivate":) the celebrity weight page? Its really interesting (as im a girl;)
[Editor Rob: I had to stop the weight as didn't have enough time to properly spend on it - I have to spend time on the height, the weight can always be talked a bit on the height pages, although the focus should always be on height.]
dmeyer said on 14/Jan/14
From wath I saw in person 181.5 182 182.5 and 183 are possible not 181 or 184 , rob a friend of mine is a solid 6ft 182.7cm at lowest 183.2cm midday o stood near him I had I 1.1 in Nike he had a sleepers same as famke I looked a hair taller than him while famke was my height in those conditions, 6 ft is possible
dmeyer said on 7/Jan/14
Rob in Person she looked more 6ft than 5'11.5 also i saw her alot during 2 days walked by her and stood by her 20times 5'11.5 Is the very least 6 ft max thaugh as she wasnt taller than me in shoes 183.5-184cm no taller than 184cm sleepers on , also she looked about 6' with neeson while He had near 0.7in more shoes ,5'11.5-6ft for her ,
mutant said on 30/Dec/13
Click Here Hey Rob ,and on this photo?( taken while x- men 3) i know its not bikini shots (sorry of ask again...:)
[Editor Rob: I was looking again and you know 135 range is possible in that x-men 3 time.]
mutant said on 27/Dec/13
Hey rob do you think that she was the same weight in "x-men the last stand" ?
[Editor Rob: if there was bikini shots it would be easier to determine ;) ]
shy said on 18/Dec/13
hey Rob do you think that 140lbs is a good estimation for her weight?
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't say less than that]
Lorne said on 20/Jul/13
@Dmeyer: If you see this... Are you saying she could be 5'11.75? Like a strong 182? If she was same as you with 0.5-0.6 in disadvantage, she could've been half inch taller. So she could be pushing 6ft. She does a good job of hiding it at times,(like in x2 with Jackman) but other times, Like on Nip/Tuck, very tall. But I didn't know she could be a weak 6 footer!!!
cole said on 16/Jul/13
I thought she looked shorter than Owen Wilson in Ispy? Perhaps Owen was in boots and she was barefoot?
Silent d said on 23/Jun/13
Marsden wore special shoes in xmen to look tall next to hugh jackman. 182cm. Quite tall next to pierce brosnan, liam neeson, hugh jackman and others.
Emily said on 20/May/13
So is she a legit 6 feet or a little under it? I´m 5´11.5 as well but i feel like she looks a little taller than me. I think she wakes up at 6 feet and drops to 5´11.5 throughout the day. Correct?
Dmeyer said on 28/Mar/13
I remember neeson looking 4.5 in taller than her in 1cm While hé had 3cm
Arch Stanton said on 17/Mar/13
Lo sgozzatore says on 6/Feb/13
She did look max 11-12 cms shorter than Liam Neeson, but with her wearing ballerina and him wearing over 3 cms shoes... That would make her 184-185 (if Neeson is really 6'4), which i doubt!

Doubt Neeson is 6'4"?? Neeson has always been a perfect example of a legit 6'4" guy in Hollywood. He might have lost a bit from peak today but at peak he could look 6'4.5".

even tho 99.9% of all celebs round up their height by up to 3 inches she aint one of em....shes definitely 5'11.. in x men for instance with like 1.5 - 2inch heels she was basically the same height as barefoot 6'1 hugh jackman ( yeah i know he claims 6'2 but i dont think thats ture.. when he is barefoot that is.....in regular shoes 6'2 is accuarte for hugh tho)
Aragon 5'11 said on 21/Oct/12
She's definitely 6'1/6'2 with their heels on. But without them she would be in 5'10/5'11 range. The 5'11.5 and 6' claims are a liitle to high.
Bellevue said on 20/Oct/12
Definitely very tall. 6' for sure looks that height next to Hugh jackman and Liam neeson
Aragorn 5'11 said on 20/Oct/12
She's around the same height as James Marsden (5'10).

A little under 6 foot in golden eye next to 186cm pierce brosnan. I would say 180cm.
SAK said on 4/Oct/12
Click Here

Here is an article on metro paper. She talks about how hard it is to get roles being very tall woman. I guess she pleased that actors like Neeson are still in the business.

I think she is at least 5f11 (if not slightly more)

finaly someone said something that makes since on this sight James S. is right liam neeson IS 6'1.50". I am am making my final comments on this site. John candy was in actuality 5'9" max, my mom who is 5'7.50" met john candy face to face and asked him how tall he was and he said 6'3" then she said no way how tall are you really and he laughed and said all right im 5'10" this site states him at 6'2.50" or something my mom said he didint even look 5'10" like 5'8" 5'9" she was wearing normal shoes by the way to. famke is about 5'8" people can get way off measurements i know 5'8" souds far far to low for her seeing there are crazy tall girls and you assume she must be one of them but it is true she is about 5'8" in reality. this sight puts most men way to far in the sky as most men stated to be 6'2" 6'3" 6'1" on this sight are actually far from even the 6' mark theres a guy in here who is stated as 6'4" and people comment saying he is a little more but he was measured in front of me at 5'11". there are alot of more comments id like to post i cant think of right now from the top of my head and placing them would make this comment far to long.i cant blame this sight, men just dont admit or know there actual height and are sometimes obligated to grossly exaggerate because everyone else does. so on this site in most cases 6'2" is really 5'10". dan akroyd gene hackman and so many others stated to be well over the 6' mark truly peaked under it.Goodbye rob and celebheights and good luck. i will visit this site just once more to see if my full comment was placed. ps if your wondering how tall a celeb is don't look on the internet even if they really look it because it will always most likely be greatly exaggerated. bye...

Hansen said on 2/Sep/11
shes not 6ft. 5ft11 move on.
C-Dawg said on 22/Aug/11
Except, it is highly doubtful that she wears 11. Several major designers provide size 11. Kate Winslet is a size 11 yet she is seen in Louboutins all the time. Famke is never seen in Louboutins, nor any other recognizable make of shoe. She also needed custom-made shoes on the set of Goldeneye. Disagree on your perception of her feet. They are clearly deformed from stuffing into shoes way too small, as evidenced by her hammertoe. Those are some real boats!
Shaun said on 16/Aug/11
Her feet don't look that huge to me. Look proportionate with her height of six feet. A Size 11 US, Size 10 UK would seem normal for a woman/man of her height.
tiptip said on 27/Jul/11
her real height is 184 cm. saw her in real. she is amazingly good looking and also have size 45 (!) shoe size
vinniemack said on 22/Jul/11
I'm watching an episode of Star Trek TNG and there is something very confusing...in one scene she is close to jOnathan frakes (6'3")...and in another she is eye to eye with patrick stewart (5'8").

Bon says on 14/Dec/10
@ Anonymous : but it's not like being 'taller and blonder' is better. It is well known women in big majority of cases prefer darker-haired men.

British women tend to anyway and there are a lot of blonds in this country who are attracted to the Latin look. You always hear British chicks talking about "tall dark and handsome". But I think you'll find that the average British bloke that women go for tend to be medium coloring brown hair/bald.
C-Dawg said on 7/Jul/11
"There's not a lot of tall men around and they don't really want to admit their actual height"

Kind of like how Famke doesn't want to admit her actual shoe size. Officially, she wears a size 11, but she required specially made shoes on the set of Goldeneye. Those boats of hers are probably in the neighborhood of a 12 or 13.
Legend said on 13/Jun/11
I agree with this height and she is beautiful. I don't know why my last comment didn't go through.

she did look aleast that in person was about my height in 1 in shoes so 6 ft 0.25 to 6 ft 0.5 in she had 1cm sleepers , i can buy 5 ft 11.5 5 ft 11.75 or 6 ft

in person she is about 6 ft i was about 184cm in shoes she looked the same in sleepers
Alex said on 11/May/11
She even admits shes 6'0 but rather claim 5'11.5.
Klaus said on 15/Apr/11
She's 6' tall. And so beautiful.
SAK said on 5/Apr/11
She obviously does not want to be 6ft0, she looks around 182-183cm.
Amal said on 5/Apr/11
I am damn sure that she is shorter than christopher reeve and brandon routh
Amal john said on 5/Apr/11
I think its because of her heels she looks taller upto nearly 6 feet

"Not 6'7.25 guy.A 6' girl = 6'5 guy"
Yeah I'd say thats about right. There is 4 or 5 inches between the average heights of men and women.
jake said on 11/Feb/11
I'm 183 cm and her height would never be a turn-off.
Shaun said on 8/Feb/11
Out of bed I reckon Famke is 6'0.5". 5'11.5" later in the day maybe... I'm pretty sure at some point in the day she would measure 6'. She does look 6' next to Jackman accounting for footwear.
Radek said on 11/Jan/11
USYD i think you are right , but i dont buy hugh jackman shoes give only 1.5 cm, the flattest converse shoes give around this, so i think his average looking shoes give easily 2.2 -2.5 cm which would make him stant at 190,2 to 190,5 cm which would make out famke being 183 cm or really close to this heigh.
Legend said on 7/Jan/11
I think she's pushing 5'11, no more.
Robert said on 6/Jan/11
she is my height I am 6 ft, I know because we were at the same high school and we and a group of friend frequently went out to the Amsterdam Bars, Yep it is legal in Amsterdam to go to bars while still in high school.
Rodro said on 29/Dec/10
im sure she is way more than 5'11.. first she claim it.. (cause would be ridiculous to say even less..now she says 5'11.5 cause it was too obvious she wasnt simply 5'11... im sure she is at least 6 feet but she wouldn't like to recognize, unlike most of american women whom wish they were taller than they really are, she wish to be shorter. A solid 6 feet i would say or even 6' 1/4

183-184 cm

who says tall women aren't attractive???????????? crazy, height is just height, nothing to do with beauty. I'm tiny but I actually idenitfy with my very tall friends, we are all singled out for being out of the norm, and even though I'm sure alot of people don't mean it they make you feel rubbish and self conscious about it, by constantly making comments.
I'd love to know what it feels like to be tall for one day. i like the fact that men are bigger and stronger than me( even possible ronnie corbet!!) but just once i would love to know what its like to not always be looking up, but to stand and meet them eye to eye. does that sound strange? maybe you have to be really short to understand.

Bon it was not with intention to say something is better. I just made it clear what some people were writing in previous comments. And for women preference i might agree , you come more frequently with girls stating their preference for italian or pseudo mediterranean looking anglos like robbie williams or colin farrell than for guys that look like basshunter or dolph lundgren.
Bon said on 14/Dec/10
@ Anonymous : but it's not like being 'taller and blonder' is better. It is well known women in big majority of cases prefer darker-haired men. As for height, most British men are in the very average zone, which is not a particular imperfection in relation to being overly tall, as quite a few 'blond Germanics' tend to be.
Anonymous said on 13/Dec/10
its funny how people compare british and dutch people. I have lived in both countries and can attest dutch are much taller and naturally blonder than english people in average. They are in par with danish and north germans.

Actually the border of Germanic and Celtic/Roman Europe would be northern france and wallonia (southern belgium) even flemish who are less nordic than dutch in average are predominantly germanic and much naturally blonder than brits.
Bon said on 5/Dec/10
Actually, a 6' girl is equivalent to 6'4 guy, but women naturally tend to be shorter, it's not just that a woman's height translates into guy's.

Michael L. said on 27/Oct/10
finaly someone said something that makes since on this sight James S. is right liam neeson IS 6'1.50". I am am making my final comments on this site. John candy was in actuality 5'9" max, my mom who is 5'7.50" met john candy face to face and asked him how tall he was and he said 6'3" then she said no way how tall are you really and he laughed and said all right im 5'10" this site states him at 6'2.50" or something my mom said he didint even look 5'10" like 5'8" 5'9" she was wearing normal shoes by the way to. famke is about 5'8" people can get way off measurements i know 5'8" souds far far to low for her seeing there are crazy tall girls and you assume she must be one of them but it is true she is about 5'8" in reality. this sight puts most men way to far in the sky as most men stated to be 6'2" 6'3" 6'1" on this sight are actually far from even the 6' mark theres a guy in here who is stated as 6'4" and people comment saying he is a little more but he was measured in front of me at 5'11". there are alot of more comments id like to post i cant think of right now from the top of my head and placing them would make this comment far to long.i cant blame this sight, men just dont admit or know there actual height and are sometimes obligated to grossly exaggerate because everyone else does. so on this site in most cases 6'2" is really 5'10". dan akroyd gene hackman and so many others stated to be well over the 6' mark truly peaked under it.Goodbye rob and celebheights and good luck. i will visit this site just once more to see if my full comment was placed. ps if your wondering how tall a celeb is don't look on the internet even if they really look it because it will always most likely be greatly exaggerated. bye...

Doug said on 14/Jun/09
I didn't say all Dutch people were blue eyed blondes. I said there are quite a lot of Dutch who are tall with fairer features. Better examples of Aryan are Danish, Swedish, Finnish peoples. I am aware that as in the UK most Dutch have brown hair and blue/dark eyes is equally common. My point was that Janssen looks distinctly Mediterrean/Georgian looking and for a northern European who comes from a blonde family that she does it is not extremely common. Sure there are some Italian/Greke looking women in the UK but they sure as hell don't make up the majority.
MD said on 20/May/09
To be fair, I think Famke is actually of at least part Frisian ancestary, and they are even more blond, so she is a bit unusual in that way.

That said, personally, I'd never thought of the Dutch as being particularly blond people. That kind of stuff doesn't really begin to become very noticeable until you get up in the far north of Germany and into Denmark. The Netherlands has always been at the border of Germanic and Celtic/Roman Europe, so if anything, one shouldn't expect them to be particularly light or particulary dark.
Steven said on 19/May/09
Dutch are not all blue eyed blondes. Most have dark hair and dark eyes.
Shikoku said on 18/May/09
Actually, the majority of the Dutch population has dark blond to brown hair and blue eyes and brown eyes are almost equally frequent. not the real blonde aryan with blue eyes look. Famke Janssen would be just as normal being a Dutch person as she would being German/American or what else.

Really, people should stop thinking inside the box and use racial stereotypes.
unknown said on 14/May/09
I know she Famke wouldn't like it...but she needs a upgrade to 5 ft 11.75 at least..."I'm 5' 11 1/2 as I proudly say...just so I don't have to say six feet." In her words is a signal for too close to six but most likely is 6 feet lol!
Lauw said on 18/Apr/09
Doug, I'm from Holland and cause Spain ruled parts of Holland from 1579-1713, some people in holland have spanish ancestors too. Maybe typically dutch people have blond hair and blue eyes, but definately not all. And since we're on this site I wanna add that in Holland the average height for women is like 5.7 - 5.8 so out here she is still tall.
Doug said on 1/Apr/09
Yes the proof is that she was no more than two inches shorter than Julian Mahon in flat shoes who as most people know is a strong legit 6'2" and is taller than other 6'2" listed guys like Clive Owen etc. So Mahon is minimum 6'2" a likely 6'2.5" out of bed. She must be grazing the 6 foot mark or comes extremely close to it.
Doug said on 1/Apr/09
"I'm 5' 11 1/2 as I proudly say...just so I don't have to say six feet"? Does that strike anybody as unusual? That sort of comment indicates she is actually 6 foot but is ashamed to admit in and downgrades to avoid having to say she is a freaky "six foot". This woman made Sean Bean look like a noticeably short guy remember and he isn't exactly small is he at around 5'11" barefoot. Even he looks taller than a lot of men do. She can sure pull off a near 6'3" in heels. I personally think she is grazing the 6' mark but completely relaxes down to claim 5'11.5" barefoot. As an actress who stands at six feet it must be a nightmare in Hollywood where most of the guys don't reach 6 foot even in munster lifts. I heard the Dutch are so much taller than everybody else because they drink lots of milk LOL. I love the way though she dismisses American though as a short bunch, even though the USA has one of the highest average heights in the world. Imagine Famke walking the streets of some small town in Vietnam, she would tower torso above most people.
kieran said on 28/Mar/09
tall women do tend to understate their height. My cousin is a beautiful 6`3 yet she claims to be 5`10 which makes me a lot shorter than my medically verified height of 6`and 2 3rds of an inch. Famke is simply a gorgeous real woman
Doug said on 8/Mar/09
Yes she is unsually dark for a Dutch woman, she did say she is the odd one out in her family though as her siblings are all blond. In my view she looks more Italian, Turkish or Georgian as she was cast in Goldeneye. She definately has the Latin/Mediterranean look, unusual for the Dutch who are often excellent examples of Aryan, tall, blond and blue eyed.
Alex said on 5/Mar/09
Thats because Famke is more 6'0 and Brooke isn't more than 5'11.
J.Lee said on 4/Mar/09
oh rob. I watched nip tuck with brooke shields. And in this video famke looks taller next to christian than brooke does. So do you really think brooke is less than 6 feet? and why would a girl like brooke boost her height to be 6 feet? do you think she really thinks she is but just sucks at measuring?
Alex said on 20/Feb/09
Here is another one. Look at the 2:25-2:30 mark. She looks about 6'0 there too. This video she is in flatter shoes I believe from what I saw.

Alex said on 20/Feb/09
Famke with 6'2 Julian McMahon. She's looking 6'0 here but not sure on the footwear but I've seen her look close to height with him in normal footwear as well. Rob, she could give her the 5'11.75 listing actually.

Alex said on 12/Feb/09
Alan, you mean 5'11.5-5'11.75 barefoot not in footwear right? I think she may very well be 6'0 barefoot but I wouldn't go over that.
Alan R said on 31/Jan/09
Many people who are 5'11 or 5'11.5 get pegged at around six usually. Many people that height or even in the 5'10 range beleive they are 6 feet, and I have noticed that many short people think someone who is 5'11 or a bit over 5'10 are six feet or more, but for Famke I say close to but not 6, 5'11.5 to 5'11.75 with normal footwear.
Alex said on 30/Nov/08
Shes nothing under 5'11 1/2. Was around 2 inches shorter than 6'1 1/2-6'2 Julian McMahon in normal footwear, not heels!

She was two inches shorter than Brosnan in Goldeneye and she was likely in heels. If she is this height Brosnan was a full 6'2" in 1995. Actually forget I said that. In heels she looks 6'3" compared to Brosnan and this would be accurate in the photos where she is 0.5-1 inch taller than Hugh Jackman. WOW she's really tall. If she was 5'11.5" barefoot, 6'3" in heels seems about right in those pics with Brosnan and Jackman

Alex said on 22/Jul/08
So it seems like she may be a legit 6'0 but saying 5'11.5. Either way shes at least 5'11.5 I would agree on. She looked 2 inches or so shorter than Julian McMahon and she wasn't even in heels!
Alex said on 21/Jul/08
I googled her height and every site lists her at 5'11 so I doubt she would really be more than 5'11 1/2. If she is this then Julian McMahon may only be 6'1.5-6'1.75. He was 2.5 inches tops taller than her face to face.

[Editor Rob: I always put her 5ft 11.5 against her initial 5ft 11 claim because she looks that tall...and this year she admitted in the quote I posted 16th march about being proudly 5ft 11.5 but not saying 6ft. I've now put that quote at the top of the page...]
Alex said on 21/Jul/08
She is listed at 5'11 on I M D B.com and thats the very lowest she looks to me and I wouldn't be suprised if she was 5'11.5-6'0 either. On Nip Tuck she was only 2 inches or so shorter than Julian McMahon who is between 6'1 and 6'2.

"ancalagon says on 10/Dec/06
She is tall, that is evident. But in my country (Serbia) it is very often to see woman taller than 5'11(181cm). My girlfriend for example is 6'1(186cm) and no one in my country is surprised with her height. With the average height 5'7 171cm for women in Serbia and 6'1 (185,6cm) for males 5'11 we are on the first place in the world. Dutch are on second with 6'(183cm) and Iceland on third 5'11(181cm). I am 6'2(188cm) and no one tells me that I am tall"

White South Africans (Afrikaans) are the tallest ethnic group in the world .
Have you ever been there ? Every (white) guy is like 188/190cm ...

Famke is the perfect thinking-man's woman. She's intelligent, very attractive and she carries her height proudly and regally. Thats why she's cool wearing 4" heels. (And if you have a foot fetish, her size 11 feet are top shelf!)

I met Famke Janssen today along with her dog. It was funny because she came shopping in SOHO Levi store and I was helping her out for quite some time until I said, you look familiar. She's hot and her eyes are just amazing. Can't believe shes 42.
Max said on 9/Nov/07
I agree with you Markus, many Hollywood people do seem to try to be taller than they actually are. I travel quite alot and have meet many celebrities over the years, I am almost always surprised how the look in person, compared to how you perceive them from the big screen. Probably one of the few celebrities I've meet who looked exactly how I expected is Ralph Moeller. He is a big guy on screen and when you see him in person he looks the same. I have never been lucky enough to meet Famke, but can easily see that she might drop the 1/2". My sister drops a full inch and calls it 5'11" because she feels too tall admitting she is a full 6'.
Markus Zorin said on 9/Nov/07
Well of course nobody "needs" heels, but in Hollywood it seems that a lot of people want to appear taller than they really are. And that's not the case for Famke I think, she doesn't have to wear heels them to appear tall.
To me she looks beautiful anyway, heels or no heels lol!

But to speak for myself, if I would see a 182 cm girl (flat heeled) I would probably guess her 185 cm. As for a guy I could estimate much more accurate.

But 190 cm is very tall for a girl Max! But in the end it all comes down to proportions I think.
Max said on 8/Nov/07
She doesn't wear heels because she "needs" them. she thinks the shoes look pretty and wants to wear them. Her boyfriend is 199 cm so he doesn't mind either. We know quite a few women in the 180 cm and above range, none of them need heels but when a women likes a pretty pair of shoes she wants to wear she will wear it. When I was in University a woman at the school, who was a fashion student, who was exceptionally pretty, was 190 cm flat footed. I asked her one time if she was a model, and she quitely said they turned her down because of her height. Imagine a girl that looks like Jessica Simpson in her Dukes of Hazzard role, but 190 cm. Amazingly when they did a fashion show at the school, the girls were their own models for the clothes they made. The teacher insisted that they all wear heels because that is what is fashionable . With her "show" shoes on she looked me square in the eye, same height.
Leung said on 5/Nov/07
6ft is very tall for a woman. A 6ft female is about equivalent to a 6
Markus Zorin said on 5/Nov/07
I don't agree with that entirely Max, the girls I know who are in the 180 cm range don't wear heels, just because they don't need to!
Max said on 4/Nov/07
A 182 woman is also more likely to wear heels than a 182 cm man. Thus making her actually taller, not just appearing so. My little sister is 183 cm and sometimes when she goes dancing with my wife and myself she wears 7 cm heels bring her to 190 cm. I am 197 cm and sometimes when she walks toward me I am even surprised at her height in her dress shoes.
Markus Zorin said on 4/Nov/07
The funny thing about women's height is that a 182 cm woman would APPEAR taller to me than a 182 cm man for some reason. Maybe it has to do with proportions as well, or the fact that just few women are that height, but many men are.

I read a few times that her official height is 180 cm.
Max said on 3/Nov/07
I can see the rounding down part. My last physical I was measured at 6'5.5" . I feel akward mentioning the .5 since I am I almost always much taller than the people I am with. I just say I'm 6'5" if I am asked. My little sister is 6' even, though always tells people she is 5'11" because she doesn't like the way 6' sounds for a womans height. A girl I went to University with was 6' but would actually insist she was 5'9" because she felt uncomfortable with her height and the fact she was taller than many of the guys.
BILL said on 18/Oct/07
I am 6'4" and my wife is 6'5" so Famke is just moderately tall to us. I met two ladies at the airport. One was 6'10" and another was 6'9". Famke is beautiful and in my opinion a good actress

out of bed 6'0.5 i think she is aleast 5'11.75 since i had 1.1 in heels and she had 0.5 in heels and we were about the same so 5'11.75 no less and i am talking late afternoon height like 6 pm
dmeyer said on 17/May/07
rob i think she is 6 ft since i had 1 in heels and she had 0.5 in heels and even with military posture i was barely her height i think she is a full 6 ft but when 6 ft guys are in flip flop i am as tall as them easy maybe 5'11.75 als o xander berckley wase her costar he seemed similar height with her he had 0.8 in heels so 181 182 for or a weak 6 ft but since in 50s he might have been strong 6 ft at peak

[Editor Rob: 5ft 11.75, strong 182 is not outwith realms of possibility, 6ft flat is possible from your description of your encounter. She will clear 6ft out of bed for sure...]

i agree with her that a lot of men lie about theyr height since at 5'11 i am very oftenly as tall as 6 ft claimer and 2 inchestaller than 5'10 claimers but she is over wath she claims aleast 5'11.5 or 6 ft
dmeyer said on 28/Feb/07
i worked with her again today i weard converse so i dont have mush advantage on her 0.25 sleepers she looks aleast 0.5 taller than me i aint sure about 1 inch do but she is clearly over 5'11 at the very least 5'11.5 but more 6 ft 5'11.75 would would be a good guess since she seemed 1 to 2 cm taller than me sometimes she seemed the same as me in converse but i had military posture also she only looked 4 inches shorter than liam he was wearing 1 inch heels and she was almost barefeet so she is defeneltly flirting with 6 ft she is in the 5'11.5 to 6 ft zone when she claimed 5'11 she defenetly droped 0.5 to 1 inch
dmeyer said on 27/Feb/07
i stood by her for 6 hours on solid floore and she was wearing 0.6 upscale sleepers and i was wearing 1.2 casual shoes and she was easy my height i was her height with military posture and 1.5 cm shoes advantage for me 6 ft is a big possibility but at the very least 5'11.5 i think 5'11.75 would make sens since i am 180.34 5'11 we were the same height but i had shoes advantage 5'11.5 minimum and very possibly 6 ft but i have no phisical evidance that she is over 5'11.5 it is hard to judge an exact height even in 6 hours so i alwais give my self a 2 cm perimeter so 5'11.25 to 6 ft for her 181 to 183 cm i should work with her again tomorow but i saw her enaugh to see 181 atleast nd 183 at most she defenely round down 0.5 to 1 inch my guess is a full 182 cm for her

[Editor Rob: there is a picture of Glenn's to go up soon here.

she's pretty much stuck to 5ft 11 through years, but I know some taller actors personally in 6ft 3 and 4 range who are linke 6ft 4.5 or 6ft 4 and 3/4 and drop the extra 3/4!]

I think she's 5'10 because I saw a picture with hugh jackman 6'2 and famke was wearing 2 inch heels and she was still 2 inches shorter

She is tall, that is evident. But in my country (Serbia) it is very often to see woman taller than 5'11(181cm). My girlfriend for example is 6'1(186cm) and no one in my country is surprised with her height. With the average height 5'7 171cm for women in Serbia and 6'1 (185,6cm) for males 5'11 we are on the first place in the world. Dutch are on second with 6'(183cm) and Iceland on third 5'11(181cm). I am 6'2(188cm) and no one tells me that I am tall.

I saw here last summer in Amsterdam in a shop and tried to do some comparison without letting her know. Her hands were bigger, our forearms pretty close and I outsized her biceps. But most off all, she is very beautifull!
Anthony said on 8/Nov/06
Famke looks really, really tall. I wouldn't be surprised if she was as tall as say, 184 cm. 5'11 min, 6'0.5 max.
J-Dog said on 5/Oct/06
I bet Famke is wearing flat shoes in that picture.
anon said on 5/Oct/06
I've seen her in person in NYC several times - she's over 5'11", but how much I'm not sure, between 1/2 and 1 1/2 inches taller I'd say.
Shemp said on 2/Oct/06
Here's a photo of her with Rebecca Romijn (5'11), Halle Berry (5'5) and Hugh Jackman (6'2/3).
Click Here
You can't see their feet, but I assume the women are all wearing heals and Jackman is just in normal shoes. Berry is noticebly shorter than them, Jackman is taller than all of them (even if they're wearing heals) Romijn looks taller than Famke, even though thery're both 5'11, but I think Romijn is probarly wearing larger heals. I thnk Famke's trying to hide her height a bit

In this photo

You can see Romijn is wearin heals, but you can't see Famkes

In this photo you can see Jackman is wearing those trainers with 1cm heals

Actually,the average height for women in sweden is 167 and for males 5'11,
Click Here in sweden we're taller then our neighbours so dutch people are the tallest in the world.Me,being a swede at 5'1 is considered short here,but my mom is 4'11 and my sis 5'2 so there's plenty of short people here too.To me Famke looks like a 5'11 person.
ralph said on 14/Sep/06
;) I didnt see the footwear
ralph said on 13/Sep/06
famke is no TALLER than rebecca romijn (absolutely). she is the same height of ethan hawke heels in, I think she could be 5'9". Click Here

[Editor Rob: nonsense ;-) she has on, in fact probably less footwear advantage, as seen in previously noted picture]

I'm from Holland and I'm just 5.2.5(160 cm) probaly because my family isn't that tall. The Dutch aren't the tallest people in the world anymore I guess we're third on the world ranklist now. Scandinavian people are definitly number one! I think Famke is about 5'10 or 5'11.
Ed said on 18/Aug/06
My wife was watching Ellen today,and I saw Famke but missed Samuel L. Jackson by a few minutes. Anyways she looked absolutely huge, when she came out. She had big heels on probably 3 plus inches, but I'm not kidding with being how skinny she is she looked like Manute Bol next to Ellen, it was hilarious. She has to be taller than 5ft11.5, with those heels she looked 6ft4 to 6ft5!
dmeyer said on 14/Aug/06
i have seen the movie and she is wearing heels in that pics with eddie so even if he has lift he dosnt have bigger heels also he looked 1 to 2 inches smaller than wilson so no lifts
Marcus said on 20/Jul/06
Janssen looked the same height as Treat Williams in "Deep Rising", but Janssen was in flat-heeled shoes and meanwhile Williams was wearing Caterpillar-kind of shoes. So yeah, she's definitely close to 6 ft. Crappy movie by the way!

Of course, not ALL Dutch are tall, but they are the tallest MEAN height on earth at this time. Since we're talking mean height here, the size of the population only has a limited effect. US citizens WERE the tallest, but have slipped in the ranks. Exercise, diet, health care: there could be several factors. But it's not just ethnic diversity; that's been examined. So, it's math, not myth. :-) I'm WAY over the mean height for a US citizen @ 6'5", but I'm still an American. Being an average value, there will be people who fall below OR above that by definition. Anyway, the data's well tested and can be examined on several good sites on the Web.

If you want to see tall people, come to Iceland...
D. Ray Morton said on 28/Jun/06
"The Dutch have the greatest mean height on earth today."

I'd go along with that. I feel like Peter Dinklage whenever I'm over there.

They say that the Dutch became so lofty over the years because of all the bicycle-ridin'. (I knew I should have spent more time on that Big Wheel!)

your taking average of a small country and population of around 16 million if you take 16 million from america they will win on average I am proud I was born in nederland but WE ARE NOT THE TALLEST PEOPLE ON EARTH
TNTinCA said on 27/Jun/06
Not all Dutch are tall. That is true. But we are dealing in averages here. The average height in Holland is more than that of many other nations.
I have several Dutch friends and I have yet to meet one who is under 6 foot.
van said on 27/Jun/06
not all dutch are tall I am dutch and I am 178cm that's is just a myth just just look at football player wesley sneijder he's 170cm to me the tallest people on earth come from sweden, norway and finland that's just my opinion.

Tyler: "I am dutch as well and the average height for men in 2004 was 184 cm (unfortunately my exact height). But that includes older men as well. The average height of 19-21 year old men here is over 190 cm."

Nope, you're wrong. Please stop pulling things out of your ass. The average 21 year old man in Holland is 184.0 cm according to the most reliable study available (performed by a medical university).
hijjd said on 16/Jun/06
I saw her in person I'm 5'9 she was only half an inch taller
supes78 said on 14/Jun/06
Yeah, Famke was wearing flats in her appearence on the MTV movie awards with Rebecca Romijn. You could see it when they first walked out for a brief second.
Chris said on 6/Jun/06
Did anyone see the photo of Famke Janssen's and Rebecca Romijn in the MTV Movie Awards. serious difference with Height between them. Famke Janssen's must have been in flats.
Markus said on 30/May/06
I think her feet are well in proportion with the rest of her body...
Her feet may be long, but nog "big". By big I mean some one can have really "meaty" feet, but thats not the case, she's just got long bones.

Btw, it is BS that the average 19-21 year old male in Holland is 190 cm, more like 185. People may be tall here on average but I still tower over most people of my age at 194 cm.
Jason said on 27/May/06
Well, according to the Dutch Government the average Dutch man is 184cm. According to clothes manufacturers the latest figure for men in the Netherlands is 182cm. I know which one I'd be more inclined to go with. ;)
David said on 25/May/06
Size 11 feet on women is no big deal anymore. Besides the Exquisite Famke and dummy Paris, Uma Thurman, Venus Williams, Rebecca Romijn, Adrianne Curry, Tyra Banks, Geena Davis, Jerry Hall, Annie Lennox, & Brigiite Neisen, are all 11s. Most models are at least size 10s. Even Katie Holmes, Teri Hatcher, Oprah, Liz Taylor, & Ciara are 10s, and none of these ladies are over 5'8". Golfer Michelle Wie wears mens size 10.5 golf shoes, which makes her at least a womans 12. Funny thing, I'm a 5'8" transvestite and I wear a womans 9 (some sandals amd slides I can get away with an 8.5).
