I LOVE this girl!

She’s so funny in AHS Coven, and is always coming up with new surprises. She’s looking down on her own body now, which is immediately prior to seeing how badly she was treated when working in a restaurant.

🎁🎂🥀🎉 Happy Birthday Gabourey! 🎉🥀🎂🎁

Many Happy Returns to Gabourey, who celebrates her 39th Birthday today; here’s wishing her a lovely day and a healthy and happy year to come.

5ft4. XXX 😀💐🌹

AHS Coven:

Gabourey’s Queenie is talking to the head of Kathy Bates - who cannot pass on, regardless of how many pieces she’s in. Queenie is about to eat, and Mme Marie - Kathy - expresses the desire to do the self same thing. “But you ain’t got no stomach!” says Queenie. “Wotcha gonna do? 💲hit it out yer neck?”

Always so funny, Gabourey gets 5ft4. The average is too low!

I noticed Gabourey pop up in the excellent 'Seven Psychopaths' the other night!

Five foot four. 😄👌💐

It's utterly believable that she is solid average and I like her attitude!

@ Peter175 - I doubt it and she looks fine just the way she is.

💐🎂💝 Happy Birthday Gabourey! 💝🎂💐

A Very Happy Birthday to Gabourey Sidibe, who is celebrating the 37th anniversary of the day she popped into the World, spreading so much joy.

I've just found 165cm by her name, but by her own admittance, she is a full inch less. Gabourey's clearly the honest type through and through.

There's another girl from American Horror Story with a Birthday today and that's Lindsay Pulsipher, who is a year older than Gabourey - to the day! 😉🎈

5ft4 and a couple of these: XX 😁👍

Her hair is very height enhancing!

Gabourey is a nice girl and she lights up celebheights!

Alicia keys wasnt in precious that was paula Patton who is nearly 5ft 8
truthteller25 said on 11/Dec/19
Didn't you guys have her listed at 5'5.5 at first? ANd she looked about 5'2 in Precious considering ALicia Keys is 5'5.5 I seen Alicia Keys not in person but she was at my college last year she looked about 5'5 which makes Gabourey 5'3 at maximum. Very wonderful actress I hope she gets better roles and more prosperity god bless.

She was added at 5ft 4 when I found the quote.

Whoah! What a girl! I bought 'Precious' for my boyfriend, and watched it first myself of course - twice! Little did I know how much magic - quite literally - this girl would bring in my life!

Five four. 😁👍

This girl has got a good point, height is all relative and it is also fairly subjective! I like her hair!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jun/19
Gabourey checks into the Cortez Hotel at the end of the production, starring as the same witchy woman character, Queenie, as she plays in 'Coven'. Are there no end to the surprises this series presents? I checked out her footwear and reckon she looked taller than 5ft4; the lady was in flats.

I was most upset to see what happened to her but the drinking of Queenie's red bodily fluid revived Angela Bassett - and even made her hair grow! I don't think it improved her height though....

5ft4.5. I disagree with the average of 5ft3.66.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/May/19
The first time we see her in Season Four of 'American Horror Story', it is on the phone, when she is enquiring about her missing mother. I know she has an intense part in Season Three, 'Coven', but my copy is so lousy that I have complained about it, and am getting another one!

However, I was 'allowed' by it, graciously, to see the first episode, which contains lots of rather tiny girls, so finding that Gabourey is only 5ft4 is a bit of a surprise. I reckoned on 5ft5.5+!

5ft4 it'll be then!

How tall would you guess her previous co star mo'nique is rob im seeing 5ft 9 listings but that seems unlikely gabourey can have 5ft 4 but I originally thought 5ft 5
Editor Rob
Mo'nique looks several inches less than 5ft 9. At most you might argue 5ft 7 for her, but 5ft 6-7 is possible.
Realist said on 19/Jul/17
She looks 5'3 have you seen her she looks shorter than 5'4 Taraji P Henson whose more like 5'4.3
even said on 19/Jul/17
a solid 5'3.5" and a rock solid 300 pounds
Rhianna said on 22/Mar/17
I think she's actually 5'5
Shredder said on 17/Mar/17
I thought 5'5 or so before seeing her claim.

I thought she'd be 5ft10 at least!


How? She doesn't have the body proportions of a tall woman to begin with, and being chubby doesn't help either.

No idea who she is just saw her on the right hand rostrum so took a peak..
From pic she looks short for a woman under 5 3 granted she is and heavy.
That being said she doesnt look bad try lifting some weights then you could handle a bit more woman.
Though she is a bit short for my taste still cute.
Realist said on 11/Mar/17
She looked 5'2 next to Alicia keys 5'6 in Precious and 5'2 next to a 5'9 MoNique.I will say 5'3 her size makes her look about 2 inches less if she weighed 200 she would be 5'4 all day.

I would have said about average height, think she an awful actress though, especially in the American Horror series
Peter175 said on 11/Mar/17
If she was thin she'd probably have a 6ft height requirement.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Mar/17
She's a talented actress, want to see her in more Oscar type roles. She can do it.
Shredder said on 10/Mar/17
Yeah she did lose about 100 lbs I think.
