You are probably wise, Rob, to hold off on any judgements about God. I myself am always careful to say kind things about Him, as I don't want Him to be any more annoyed with me than he probably already is.

Michelangelo painted God giving life to Adam and, interestingly, God is the only one in the picture (which includes seraphim and angels) who is wearing clothing. Fine. It's just that he is wearing what looks suspiciously like a dress. Well fine. He's God, and he can wear what He wants. I am certainly not going to gig him about his clothing choices.

By the way, Rob, have you any insights into how tall God is? Tall. Like, He's tall, right? He looks like Willie Nelson, only six foot three.
Editor Rob
God can be any height he wants to for Jayne, she could look Taller than Joan Collins in their early days.

Mansfield is one of the very few people who became successful in show business whose only talent was physical beauty.

But, that said, she really had that talent. It's as if God had taken the day off and put Hugh Hefner in charge of making new people.

It is odd that her autopsy listed a height that must have been incorrect. There was a story, since proved false, that she had been decapitated in the accident that killed her. In any case, her head was badly damaged, which may have made measuring her exact height imprecise.

There was a white-blonde, curly-haired little girl in my class when I was 4-7 years old called Jayne Mansfield - honest!

Jayne's tragic death in 1967 in a freak car accident was hardly the sort of thing to have been talked about back then in a classful of tiny 6-year-olds. I only found out much later. Poor woman, she was reputed to be very intelligent and loved kids and dogs. I believe Jayne's husband was around 6ft7 or so. I would put Ms Mansfield at nearer 5ft6, so 5ft5.75 it will be!

I used to think she was 5"9....

I find it very strange how Jayne is commonly listed as having been 5’5.5-5’6 when her autopsy report stated she was 5’8. They would have presumably measured her height accurately for such a report although she looked quite average to me, certainly not above 5’7. Do you think 5’8 sounds reasonable Rob?
Editor Rob
it could be a case of an autopsy mistake. I'm sure there is enough out there to think 5ft 8 would be impossible - in heels she would have been 3 inches taller than a guy like Frank Sinatra, yet doesn't seem much taller in heels.

She claimed to be 5’5 1/2, but it’s a known fact that it probably wasn’t true. Her death certificate states 5’8 which is pretty tall for the time and it wasn’t necessarily considered attractive for a starlet. Feminine beauty ideals were different from nowadays.
5’8 seems accurate.

Jayne mansfield media 1.75 mts....No 1.66 mts
Scarlett Rose said on 23/May/17
If Jayne Mansfield was 1.66m tall, Marilyn Monroe could not have been! So much for me being unbelievable or daft! 😝😁😊

What was that you said Editor Rob? Can I believe my eyes? πŸ‘€πŸ‘€ Did you really say..."Editor Rob: Jayne could give a taller impression in photos I noticed. She seems taller than someone like Marilyn."

Someone is not being honest. πŸ˜• Could it be possible that Marilyn lied about her true height/assets?
Editor Rob
of course she could have lied, but by 3.5 inches? I can't see it...the lowest I'd ever guess would be 5ft 4 range for Marilyn.
Scarlett Rose said on 23/May/17
Message to Editor Rob: Strange that you have given Mansfield the same height as Monroe, when Mansfield was taller than James Haspiel and Monroe was smaller. See links to pictures on Monroe's page. I have always thought Mansfield was visibly taller than Monroe. Seems you give all buxom blondes and sex symbols of the silver screen the same height. Talk about stereotyping! 😝😁😊 hahaha. LOL!

Rob, if there any photo which perhaps erm, shows a little more of her off? With a body like that you can't just have the face LOL.

Wow still beauty to measure by looks more like a 10 than 5 5.
jasperwazup said on 24/Sep/13
she's been listed at 5'4''-5'4.5'' elsewhere
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jun/13
Watching Too Hot to Handle. She's bent over the chair in the bar, what a body! I can see why she was a Playboy pinup in the 50s and 60s. Looks upper average to me, 5'5.5-5'6" seems about right but my eyes are not exactly fixated on her height, there are other assets if you know what i mean...

Absolutely beautiful and very fine woman. Her father must be ver proud. Can easily see her segwaying to movies or TV.

that's a great shot. Wow she's nice.
Big T said on 13/Nov/07
She is listed 5'10" so I doubt she'd be any taller than that, and she only fights at 165-170lbs. She probably walks around closer to 180lbs though.
jim said on 5/Nov/07
yea shes 5'10 she got her height from her father who was a solid 6'3
Anonymous said on 29/Oct/07
Wow, great pic, she is a real stunner. Laila Ali is listed at 5'10" & 180lbs, a really powerful girl.
Anonymous said on 28/Oct/07
She looks more than 5'10 in the picture, it looks like she looks about 5'11.5 or 6 ft in the picture but I guess shes wearing high heels.

"Kevin Durant says on 25/Oct/07
She looks very beautiful in this picture, and Leila Ali is one of the greatest female boxer of all time just like his dad Muhammad Ali."

Roflmao.. she looks like a man. I was thinking that.. just as I read "*Leila Ali* is one of the (...) just like *his* dad." XD Freudian slip?
glenn said on 26/Oct/07
thank you farzaan.
btoy said on 26/Oct/07
She looks taller than 5'10 here, but that's because she is wearing heels, look at the outfit she has on, of course she would be wearing heels. But in this pic, she looks over 6 ft. with heels.
