🎂🎁🎈 Happy Birthday Frances! 🎈🎁🎂

Wishing Frances a very happy day! 💐

She so often plays the more powerful parts that I found it a refreshing change to see her playing the irresponsible hippie Mum of Christian Bale in 'Laurel Canyon'! For the first time, I saw how relatively small she is. Power roles can often up my assumption of someone's height.

5ft5 is my Birthday guess for Fran. 😁👍

I remember watching her in 'Madeline', one of my favourite childhood movies! Rob, the actress who played Madeline said she was cast because she was the smallest out of all the girls. What would you estimate her height to be now? Her agency lists her as 5'5: Click Here

I think for hatty 5ft 5 would be optimistic.

i could actually buy 5'5 now but she could look 5'4 sometimes.

Oh blast! It's just occurred to me that Frances was in a film called 'Laurel Canyon', playing the hippie Mum of one Christian Bale! She wasn't very authoritative in THAT film! He he he!

There's no way Frances weighed 150lbs when she made the film 'Shortcuts'!
At 5ft5, she wouldn't have been exactly tyre-free at that weight, unless she spent all day building up her muscles, but she doesn't because she's an actress!
I specially looked for Frances's height, expecting it to be 5ft5 or 6. She often plays authority figures I've noticed ('Primal Fear'- a psychiatrist and in Fargo, a detective.). I think this might have influenced my decision a bit! I was slightly surprised that she's only 5ft5, but the film I'm watching is from '96, and she's probably lost a bit of height now!
I'm putting 5ft5 for her, peak height, as there is just the one box.

Rob, how tall do you think Joel Coen is? Somewhere I read he was said to be 6 feet, I think must be around six-three.

She looks a lot older these days, I wonder if she's lost a little height. An excellent actress, especially when she works with her husband and his brother.
