Yes ,my dear Anabeas, Jenn-Beal height is correct(unless Sting is shorter than Rob registered here, 5'10,5" .Just look at this image Click Here ).
If you find other pictures from the movie "The Bride" you'll notice she is using a 1,5 inches boot.Perhaps Sting is using a normal height 0,75 inch shoe which explain their height diffence being smaller than 2 inches and 1/2.
BTW , if Zoey Deutch (who worked with Beals 5 years ago)claims she is 5'3" or even 5'4" actress, might we should increase Ms. Beal to 5'10" instead (and Sting would be a true 6 footer).Look at this picture Click Here .
ZD is 6 inches shorter than Beal wich means that,if Anabea is right about Beals, Zoey Deutch is the height of Eliott Page,5'1".But i still go with 5'2" -5'2,5"for Deutch.Anyway...some people lies in hollywood, some others doesn't.The sagitarian are famous to be ridiculously sincere.And as Jenn-Beals was born in december 19th ,i bet i know who told the truth here.

Pretty sure she’s not taller than 5‘7. In season 1 of the L-Word she’s been wearing chunky boots all the time. The kind that add 1-1.5 inch. Leisha, Erin and Laurel Holloman are between 5’5-5’6 all wearing very small heels in one scene, and they were as tall as her, Laurel was even a bit taller.

Another indication that she’s not 5‘8 … season 5 of the L-Word with Rachel Shelley (Helena). Rachel is listed as 5‘8. They were both shown in long shot, both were wearing sneakers, Helena appeared at least an inch taller. Similar observation with Jennifer Beals, who is also listed as 5‘8.

So my generous guess for Kate would be a solid 5‘7
This doesn’t take away from her sexiness. She’s wild, she has this rockstar appeal, at least in the role of Shane. She’s the type of woman I’d go gay for, no matter her height. :)

I was only 12 in 1983 when Flashdance first came out & I immediately developed a crush on cutey Beals. I thought she was around 5 ft 6 (168cm) tall when I watched Flashdance but then that was maybe just wishful thinking on my part as I'm a short man & perhaps I subconsciously wanted her to be around 5 ft 6! Seeing her in other things such as The Bride (she made such a beautiful bride to Frankenstein), I fully realised that Rob et al are dead on the money at 5 ft 8 (173 cm). This is, of course, a peak height & she may have shrunk to 5 ft 7.75 inches (172cm) tall by now (the babe 57 yrs old in 2020).

I was more than a little impressed to find that Jennifer starred alongside the great Christopher Walken in 'Prophecy II' and she was in another horror, 'The Grudge 2'. Added to that, you can see Jennifer in a Tarantino film called 'Four Rooms', which stars Quentin himself, Tim Roth and Madonna! How impressive is that?

I shall go with 5ft8 for the beautiful Ms Beals. 😄💐

This lady looked pretty tall in Flashdance. I can believe at least flat 5'8. Super hot also still at 53. People need to rewatch the movie and not look at her dancing scenes but when its actually Beals. She is taller then some of the shorter men in the movie. In shoes with some kind of decent heel we are talking about 5'10-5'11.

For some reason everyone believes they are 2 inches taller than they actually are. I don't get it.

On Taken she is clearly taller that some. Not seeing if she has 4 inches heels though. I think 5'8" is a good estimate.

I saw her only in flashdance and she didn't look tall at all may be she has the proportions that makes her looks shorter than she is

Surprised, she always seems so little. Almost mousy. But beautiful.

5'8.5" - Always wears high heels, hence walk around height never under 5'11"-6'
michelle said on 19/Feb/11
Saying she's 5' 8" would be a little short for her. She's clearly 5' 9".

I'm an extra on the show The Chicago Code being filmed now, she's at least 5'8"

Jennifer Beals is someone I saw at a wedding in Toronto. I'm not sure I would give her 5'8" but it is somewhere just south of there. It could be as low as 5'6". She had heels on at the wedding and looked like a classy/not glitzy million bucks. She's another one who has obvious presence and charisma. I'll never forget just watching her walk by as she left the place. Wow!

I'm surprised that she's 5' 8". She didn't look it in Flashdance but if she's 5' 8" and all of those pics show it, then she is. I would have guessed 5' 6 1/2", but oh well.

She looks shorter in her dance scenes in Flashdance, because it was done by a double, Marine Jahan. Jahaon's height is probably around 5'5-5'6.

i think she is around 5'6/5'7. In Flashdance she does not look very tall, her legs dont look that long. She is pretty.

Jennifer is 5'8". How do I know? No, I never met her but if anyone is any kind of fan of hers they have read every article they could find, watched every interview they could find, and followed her work closer than she has followed it herself. With that said, Jennifer has said in more than one interview that she was 5'8", and also that before she had her baby she was wear a size 10 tailored, of course, so no matter how she looks to this person or that person, and we all see things differently, what is important is what she says on the matter because truly no one knows better than her.

Jennifer is at least 5'8. I saw her in Canada a few years back and she was very tall and leggy. She was wearing flats.
dmeyer said on 10/Jan/06

In Flash dance she doesn't look tall.She doesn't look any taller than Jessica Alba.In the movie her legs look short.I believe she look like 5'4-5'5.Plus heels are usually worn with a formal dress and heels can be at the highest without platforms 3.5-4" in stilettos.She is definitely not 5'8.

I think Kevin Bacon is about 5'9 and they are about the same height in this pic. However I assume she is not wearing flats with her formal dress and is in standard 3" heels. So wouldn't that make her shorter than 5'8? I think she is 5'6 at the most
