I'd say 5'2.5 Liz Taylor Gerald and Sue, but Gina generally pulled off looking over 5'3 if anything with tall actors like Hudson, Connery and Lee Van Cleef!

Rob, wouldn’t 5’2.5” be more appropriate?

Gina always struck me as more 5’2” than 5’3”. Nancy Reagan had over an inch on Gina.

Would go with about 5ft 2.5, nice looking lady

Burt Bacharach now too, the greatest composer of pop music aside from the Beatles IMO. A genius. I had a strong feeling he didn't have long the other day. 5 ft 8 for Burt I think, should have a page Rob!! Had the look of a 6'1-6'2 debonair type.

Her and Rock Hudson had great chemistry, particularly in Strange Bedfellows, very hard to imagine Rock was gay in that film!! Gina was stunning of course but have heard a lot of negative things about her being a diva and very catty. Sinatra, Bogie and Connery didn't like her, and she was very nasty to Sophia, I was left with the impression that she was a head up her own arse "fit but my gosh don't you know it" type as Mike Skinner would say!

Wasn’t she a beauty? A dear male friend of mine’s Dad adored her.

I’m upset to have read that Gina died recently - on January the 16th.

She might have been 95 but people who come out with this ‘good innings’ lark get on my nerves. It’s insensitive to those who have lost their loved one. 🥲

5ft3, peak.

RIP Gina XXX 🕯💐
(4th July, 1927 - 16th January, 2023).

Lenie said on 29/Jun/18
One short beauty. There is nothing wrong with short women. Everyone can't be over 5'7".

Tiny woman . Beautiful body but she had short legs . I think 1,58.
ayvie said on 2/Jun/16
On an old To Tell The Truth, Kitty Carlisle (about 5'5) said Gina Lollobrigida was very short.
mister_lennon said on 11/May/16
Maybe not 5'1. But 5'2 or 5'2 and a half sounds rigth.and hudson towered over gina in very high heels. And she was the same heigth or shorter than sandra dee, who was about 5'1 or 5'2, i think.
Arch Stanton said on 6/May/16
Keith I suggest you watch Come September, pulled off looking taller than this with big Rock Hudson.
keith said on 3/May/16
I remember when Gina Lollobrigida appeared on Joan Rivers' late-night talk show Joan was shocked at how tiny Gina was. I think Gina looked the same height as Joan who's listed on this sight as 5'1. It's doubtful Joan would have called tiny to a woman taller than herself.
mister_lennon said on 18/Apr/16
She was 5'2 and a half at peak. Not more.
jprettyyyy said on 17/Apr/16
Everyone on here always makes every actress sound way more petite than they really are she looks 5'4-5'5 and if its on her passport then it must be true.
mister_lennon said on 19/Feb/15
well, in one picture , the looks the same as natalie wood, with natalie having a slithly edge over her, but it could be bad posture or different shoes,yes.
agree with sue in this one, about 5'2.5 to 5'3. maybe in a very good day she could look a weak 5'3.
littlesue said on 17/Feb/15
Not as short as Natalie Wood who was just over 5ft, I would say about 5ft 2.5 to 3
mister_lennon said on 16/Feb/15
I think that she was more 5'2 than a full 5'3. i have seen her with other stars and she is clearly shorter than marlyn, shorter than natalie wood, and looking the same size than liz taylor or debbie reynolds. 5'2 as much.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
La bellezza di ippolita I recommend if you like looking at her! It's a classic, not as well known as some of the others but definitely needs to be included I think.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
Rob can you add Come September, Solomon and Sheba, Beautiful But Dangerous, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, La bellezza di ippolita, Woman of Straw, and Bread, Love and Dreams?
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
Althoug her upper profile, like Liz Taylor, could give a bigger impression but she was quite short in the leg like Liz so perhaps 5'3" tops. At times she could certainly pull off seeming 5'4-5'5".
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
Well if I was to hazard a guess I'd have gone more for 5 ft 4 than 5 ft 3.
Sam said on 12/Dec/14
Probably hard to stay humble when everyone tells you how sexy & beautiful you are.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Dec/14
She was really hot in her prime Sam but "my gosh didn't she know it" :-).....
Sam said on 9/Dec/14
Who cares about her height when she was put together like that? Nice picture.
wishbone said on 13/Nov/14
Very pretty 5'3". One special moment with Gina: Again,What's My Line? related. She was mystery guest in the fall of 1964. She got a standing clapping ovation and William Schallert guessed her. When WML host John Daly asked The Patty Duke Show daddy how he guessed her,Bill said,"That pantsuit gave it away!" Now true,pantssuits at that time were starting to be worn more by women,but not yet like they are now. It was pretty on 5'3" Gina,soft,and comfortable. But Bill also told Daly he knew Gina was brunette and Italian. And though spotty liking Gina,I,to,found Gina's pantsuit she wore here comfortable.
mister_lennon said on 7/May/14
yeah. i think that she was about from 5'2 to 5'3 too.she looked very petite. hot, but petite.
littlesue said on 5/May/14
I would say 5ft 2 to 3. Just read your comment below, suprised you being so nasty to me Arch, I don't have height issues
Arch Stanton said on 5/May/14
5'3" looks about right in Trapeze.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Nov/13
She looks about 5 ft 3 add heels next to Bogart in Beat the Devil.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Nov/13
Worst judger of height Little Sue? No, I just don't have height issues which make me downgrade actresses by two inches. The chances of her being 5 ft 1 are impossible. She LOOKS 5 ft 5 add heels next to Rock Hudson, that doesn't mean she was.
little sue said on 13/Nov/13
She was about 5ft 1/2. Never 5ft 5, Arch you must be the worst judger of heights we ever had on here! lol
Arch Stanton said on 8/Nov/13
Her accent is just so sexy!! Actually seems taller than this next to Rock Hudson in Come September, more like 5 ft 5.
DraakUSA said on 17/Oct/11
@Kostas Cathie Jung has the world's smallest waist at 15 inches.
littlesue said on 27/Aug/11
Her waist was probably measured wearing one of those corsets they wore in the 50', she was probably around 22 naturally and it was pulled into 19. I have a 40 inch bust and a 27 waist and I find it impossible to get any sort of dress to fit me so God know's how a 40 inch bust with a 19 inch waist managed. She must have had everything made to measure!
Kostas said on 25/Aug/11
I don't think it is physically possible for a person to have a 19 inch waist... :O
Andre said on 7/Jun/11
guyfrommars: I notice you like to play jokes. Gina was a shortie in any of her films can bo easily noticed that, she was as short as Liz Taylor, there is a photo of both Gina and Liz from 1962 when Liz was filming "Cleopatra" in Italy and they had the same height and both used high heels always
guyfrommars said on 24/May/11
I always thought she's at least 5'6". Only 5'3"? Interesting. Here in Hungary there was a New Year's Eve TV special back in the 1970s, where Gina was the special celebrity guest. She performed a dance with two Hungarian TV presenters, who were both shorter than her. Both men were around 5'5" and Gina (wearing heels) towered over them. One of them later said, that Gina was a tall woman, and when they planned this dance number, noone expected her to be that tall. If she was only 5'3" why didn't they just ask her to wear flats? Then, she would've been shorter than her dance partners. I'd always though Gina was around 5'6" (and 5'9" in heels).
gregory lehmann said on 15/May/11
Gina looked sluggish responding to her answers she gave on her "What's My Line?" "mystery guest" appearance she made in 1964 because she coughed a lot on some of the answers she gave,indicating to me she had a bad chest cold on this appearance. But she looked okay in her pants she wore.
gregory lehmann said on 12/May/11
I noticed Gina is only 5'3" from a 1964 "What's My Line?" "mystery guest" appearance she made when William Schallert guessed her on the 10th clue. But she's nicely proportioned for a 110 pound,5'3" woman. But when Bill first asked if Gina was a sports star,I flipped out! Gina wore pants on this appearance,believed,according to "What's My Line?" director Paul Alter,the first female panelist or "mystery guest" to wear pants,although Phyllis Newman was the first regular woman panelist to wear slacks,starting in 1962.
Andre said on 30/Mar/11
Gina was 5'3''
Daniele said on 27/Mar/11
In my opinion Gina was 5'4'' when she was young.There is a photo of Gina with Marilyn Monroe in the shooting of "The seven year itch" in 1954 and Marilyn is just 3cm taller than Gina and Marilyn was 5'5 1/2''
mister_lennon said on 7/Mar/11
5'2 as max.
BILL said on 6/Mar/11
Short but, really good looking.
little sue said on 4/Feb/11
5ft 3 max. If you google her name there are pics of her with Marilyn Monroe and she is a good 2 to 3 inches shorter
Anonymous said on 29/Jan/11
she's like 5'6".
eva said on 28/Jan/11
omg,she was very petite,as my grandma says 160 cm :)
Lynn said on 25/Jan/11
No way 5-5. It is a well known fact that she was a very weak 160 cm.

She was famous, here in Italy to be incredible beautyfull but "petite"
Anonymous said on 23/Jan/11
5ft 5??? no way, I have a photo of her standing face on with Liz Taylor and they have the same 3 inch stilettos and boufant hair and they are identical in height, I would say 5ft 2.5 max.
