Hey Rob, between these two pictures, who do you think is taller? Toni or Lynch? You'll notice that the background is similar, thats because these two pictures were at the same event.

Lynch: Click Here
Editor Rob: it's tricky, he might be gaining near an inch more with hair+1 foot trick...

6'1" Josh Holloway just edges her in some photos together. In Glee she edged a lot of the self-claiming 6 ft actors, who were most likely weak 5'11"s.

Rob can it be possible that she is 5'11 these days, because she looks almost as tall as 5'10.5 Nene Leakes in Glee.
Editor Rob: jp, a chance she has lost half inch by now.

Yes looked near 6 ft in 40 Year Old Virgin, an inch on Seth Rogen, at worst 5'11.5.
Editor Rob: she's now at an age where a fraction loss is possible.

Also in Role Models 6'0.25" listed Ken Marino seemed to edge her out...she doesn't always have the best posture though.

HE's wearing heels too. That's actually funny.

With 5'11ish Seann William Scott: Click Here
She's leaning in a little, yes, but she also seems to be wearing heels. I can't see how she'd measure 6ft barefoot. Have you seen enough of Jane to be confident about this 6ft listing Rob?

I think she is 6'0"!

She is about the same height as mark steines from et and he always looked like a solid 6 footer. He was taller than brad pitt and slightly shorter than will smith.

She is 6 foot. Sean william scott probably uses the camera angle to his advantage. When she is in glee next to everyone she stands her ground even next to 6 foot 3 cory monteith. 6 foot is solid. In 40 year old virgin, easy two inches over 5 foot 10 steve carrel.

USYD, I've just watched Role Models and Lynch does NOT look taller than SWS!

She's legitimately tall for a woman, but her apparent height is magnified due to her microscopic skull. Her head looks as small as Stephen Tobolowsky's, who is renowned for his tiny head; I believe she has the smallest head right now on Glee and in most of her movies.

In the scene in role models where she introduces SWS to his little, SWS is taller than her and he is listed at 5'11.25

Although she is a little older than myself, We have the exact same body structure and blonde hair, albeit my hair is longer. I am exactly 6 feet tall. Usually people guess I am taller than that because there are just too many good looking shoes and boots out there not to wear them with style, no matter your starting height. It also does not hurt that my significant other is 6'8" and a former basketplayer. But before him, I always dated guys my height or shorter. It's the person inside that counts...anything else is just stupid. I'm sure Jane lost many roles due to her height and how she is seen on the stage with other, shorter usually male actors in a particular scene. But, with the ease of big screen editing, perhaps we will be seeing her on the big screen sooner rather than later. Whatever happens, Jayne, you go got the goods!
