How tall was Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin's Height

5ft 7 (170.2 cm)

English actress and singer, best remembered for films like The Swimming Pool, Don Juan, Blow-Up, Evil Under the Sun, Death on the Nile and Slogan. A 1970 news article mentioned "Jane, who is a very slim 5 feet 7 inches". In Repeller she said "But I’m getting older. I fell down a staircase six years ago and broke five vertebrae and they filled it up with concrete. Now my torso is shorter than it used to be. I think I’ve shrunk six inches"

A robust 5’7” in her La Piscine days.

Happy 76th birthday wishes to Jane.

Rob, Birkin was noticeably a few inches shorter than 5’7.5” Charlotte Gainsbourg in 2010, time for a peak and current height for Birkin?

Happy 75th birthday to Jane Birkin, a quarter of a century! Although she could pull off 5’8” at times in The Swimming Pool, due to her remarkably slim build, I’d have to side with 5’7” for her peak. Today, around 5’4”, maybe 5’5”.

I'd left her at a peak range as I thought she'd seemed to be heading into retirement.

💐🎈🎁🎂 Happy Birthday Jane! 🎂🎁🎈💐

A Very Happy Birthday to Jane Birkin, who celebrates the 74th anniversary of her birth today.

5ft7, though likely to be a bit less now. 😁👌🎊🥂

She's 5'8, 5'8.5 in her prime. She's a tall woman and has the frame for it

Good addition, more beautiful than her daughter Charlotte in youth but the latter got more of dad's edgy weirdness. She still looks close to this height when older.

Ah, great to see Jane here at last!

I never knew she was as tall as 5ft7! Well, you learn something new every day! I guess that's partly where daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg gets her height, of half-an-inch more!

5ft7 it is then!

She looks surprisingly short next to her daughters 5'7.5" and allegedly 5'9 even considering heels.Obviously she's at an age where she probably lost 1.5"at least.
Any opinion about Serge Gainsbourg?listed at 179 but seems definitely smaller.Shame there is hardly any reliable pic to compare despite thousands available,eternally slouching dude.

I'm not sure about Serge, but she would have lost some height...
