Joan Collins Height
5ft 4 (162.6 cm)
English Actress best known for playing Alexis Carrington Colby on tv series Dynasty. In film she can be seen in The Bitch, The Stud, The Big Sleep, The Virgin Queen, The Opposite Sex, The Bravados, Seven Thieves, Road to Hong Kong, Tales from the Crypt and Empire of the Ants. There was once a play by students called "Joan Collins is 5ft 2". Joan got her agent to ring the organisers and point out that she was 5ft 4. She has also been quoted claiming 5ft 5. In this photo Joan had 1.5 inches more footwear than me.
5ft 8 Rob and Joan @ Autographica, 2009
First, I would like to be taller. I'm 5'6", which is pretty tall unless you work on 'Dynasty' and the shortest person is 5'8".

So she was 76 on that pic?Wow,people would guess 55-60 tops from her face.Well looking at the part just under her neck there are signs(like spots,skin looking kind of wrinkled) that betray older age...like 65 but even then remarkably young.
Almost 180cm guy

I think Joan isn't over 5ft 3 today but in her prime she might have been 5ft 4.25. I wonder how long she kept her height without any loss. I found some photos of Joan with Tony Blair from 1994: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
In the first photo you can see her heels and Tony's shoes. Tony was only 41 at the time but Joan was 61 at the time and I don't know how much she could have lost her height (if anything). Rob, would you say full 6ft is still possible for Tony's peak height?

Definitely one of the most glamorous in the business, there's very few left who have that old Hollywood vibe about them.

I've just caught the last two 'Tales That Witness Madness' again, which includes the one in which Joanie is traded in for a rank old tree - with a pair of tit$ and a semblance of a face, albeit a very odd and ugly one.
To favour a stupid old tree over Joan Collins is madness itself, and no wonder the husband ended up in a psychiatric institution!
5ft4, but taller those days.

Just watched a film from 2016 starring Joan Collins and Pauline Collins, not related of course. Fantastic performances. In the last scene, on a beach, Joan is barefoot. Pauline is 5ft 2 and in flat shoes in the scene. I think that Rob is exactly right about Joan’s height. I think she’s always seemed taller due to high heels and being slim.

💝💐🎈🎂 Happy Birthday Joan! 🎂🎈💐💝
Wishing Joan Collins a Very Happy Birthday! She's such fun in AHS 'Apocalype', as she was in the many horrors she made before, starring alongside Peter Cushing, Ralph Bates and many others. I never watched 'Dynasty'!
Arch Stanton said on 10/Mar/20
Saw one of her early films earlier, even very young she was very intimidating, most lads would have been scared stiff asking her out! I'm surprised any Hollywood agents ever made a move on her as she seems the type who would give you a hard slap with hitting on her!

You're absolutely wrong about that. Why don't people realize that proportions can differ a lot? The deciding factor of a woman's height is NOT just her legs. Sometimes the head can add a couple inches and there's also the TORSO. My sister is taller than me but her legs are shorter than mine. Everyone is different and to generalize women like that is so stupid.

Huh! I'd like to know which woman would warm to a pair of dowdy flat shoes as a Christmas present from her husband because he's sensitive about his height? Well, that what Joan Collins gets from her husband when she makes her second appearance in AHS 'Apocalypse', as a completely different character called Bubbles McGee. She doesn't respond too well at all!
It turns out to be a hyped-up version of a horror I saw fairly recently. Then when she leaves the stage, the insults continue. She says to a man "Taking a 💩 is a bit like reproduction to you!"
Yes, it would have been a mighty waste if Joan had just had the one part, who, alas, gets killed off early in the series. Well, she's back, so let the fun continue....😁👍

@ Rob - This show is a stroke of genius. Each Season is utterly different, but at the same time, they are interconnected, but none so much as Season Eight, which takes trips back to Seasons One (Murder House), Three (Coven) and Five (Hotel).
Tonight when I looked for my Season Eight, I hunted around for ages, and typically, it was right at the very bottom of one of my DVD Boxes! I look a bit like an English Horror Story after my fall on Tuesday, having sustained a black left eye, a sore and bruised nose, an uncomfortable injury below my nose and another one on my chin! My mouth is mauve - and for the first time ever, I think that wearing lipstick would be a little on the superfluous side!

On learning that the stew they are eating is actually a human being, (called Stu!) Joan's Evie comes out with, "This is absolutely devine! I don't care what it is! It's full of fibre; I'm going to finish every drop!"
I'd sooner stick with the usual food cube...😮🕋
This is Joan at her amusing best.

Thanks, Rob, for adding the lovely Joanie to the AHS Page. She so deserves to be here!
I wrote a very long comment on Joan and the parts she plays in Season Eight, but unfortunately, it was written on one of those unusual and rare days where many comments got lost! The only time I did a comment comparable to that one was on July 17th, 2018, when I selected Ellen Sandweiss from the original 'Evil Dead' movie, who came up as a Random Celeb, and wrote about all three girls in the film, and that was never to be seen again! 😭
Well, I'm so happy to see that Joan has been added that to celebrate in style, I am going to see 'Apocalypse' (Season Eight) again sooner than I had planned. I was going to watch 'Coven' next, but this is going on beforehand now so that I can retrace the thoughts that were going through my head when I wrote my original comment on Joan.
I shall leave her box blank for the time being.
Cheers Rob and thanks once again - and for adding Little Les Jordan!
I haven't watched later seasons of the show so haven't seen her yet in it. It's interesting they continued the show for so many seasons!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jul/19
I'm mighty excited to seeing Joan in AHS Season Eight!
When I think about it, Joan has been in some pretty scary stuff throughout her career, but it's Dynasty she's most remembered for. Well, NOT by me! 😁

I always knew she couldn't be the 5ft 6in she used to claim. Her legs have never looked long enough to be that height, and the deciding factor in most women's height is the length of their legs.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/May/19
I was watching a film on the Horror Channel on Friday, 17th May, called 'Tales That Witness Madness', from 1973. The film was in the format of the 70's film called 'Asylum', in which Robert Powell is shown round a mental institution to find out about the patients, but in this production, Donald Pleasance was showing round Jack Hawkins.
There were four tales, two were funny and two were not! Joan starred in one of the funnies, and it went not unlike this:
Her husband brings a revolting monstrosity of a tree into the house, and it resembles an old hag - with breasts! Joan doesn't like it messing up her home. She tells the husband, who seems all the more determined to keep it. When she hoovers round it, and says it ruins the appearance of her lovely home, it shakes more leaves onto the floor, so we can gather that 'she' has a modicum of understanding - and has a mischievous side as well. Also, the darn thing can move when nobody's looking!
You'd never guess who the husband chooses to take to his bed at the end of the episode, after burying the 'love rival'? 😮😂🤣
I can see how Joan made a convincing 5ft6 in her heydey. That's what I read about her back in her 'Dynasty' days - and I believed it!

💐😁🎂 Happy Birthday Joan! 🎂😁💐
Wishing Joan a very Happy Birthday today. She looks amazing!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Apr/19
Joan could have passed for 5ft5 in the 'Tales of the Unexpected' episode I saw today.
I think she is deserving of 5ft4 though because there is only one box.
Paul Wood said on 7/Sep/18
She appears unusual in that she doesn't seem to have lost very much height at all with age.
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Sep/18
Lucky lady! She used to star with the late Ralph Bates!
Lucky Rob for meeting the lovely Joan Collins!
david said on 15/Sep/17
saw her in Nice airport a few years ago , flat shoes , she is a good 5'4
mister_lennon said on 19/Feb/17
I think that she was 5'4 prime. Now, maybe 5'3.
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Feb/17
I know for a fact that Joan used to be written up as 5ft6!
I read it in a dieting magazine from the 80's and a newspaper from some time in the 90's.
I can understand that she's lost some height now and as she had shoes on in the above picture, then she's probably about 5ft4, or even less now, say 5ft3. I'll go for 5ft4 for her, based on the above picture. She does go for the bouncy haired look which gives a better height impact! That's what I always ask for, but then it falls flat! 💇 😖
Rojina said on 2/Sep/16
5"4 is rather generous don't you think? I had her down as 5"1'even during her prime.........
Peter 179cm said on 14/Jul/16
About 165 with 4cm more footwear so closer to 161cm,imo.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Mar/16
Thought she was hot in the 50s, she was WAY hotter in the 70s IMO. Like Liz Taylor in the 60s and early 70s she matured and became a more attractive woman. In films like Tales and Empire of the Ants she was super sexy!!
Arch Stanton said on 20/Feb/15
There's a scene in The Wayward Bus in which she's in the bathtub. Wonderful. :-)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Dec/14
Reed is listed 6ft4 but next to Collins I'm not sure there's as much as 1ft between them. But in Sea Devils he does look near 6ft4 beside Hudson...and yeah I think it is true what happened. Obviously what he did before the marriage but also he used her to jump start his own career...to no avail
Maybe 6ft3 for him, Rob?
said on 3/Dec/14
Rob, how tall would you say her ex-hubby Maxwell Reed was?
He also starred in Sea Devils with Rock hudson
[Editor Rob: he could look over 6ft with Joan...seems a strange one about her and Maxwell, if what she said was true about him!]
Arch Stanton said on 18/Nov/14
She looked at her hottest in the 1970s IMO, like Liz Taylor she looked much hotter in her 30s and 40s that she did in her 20s.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Oct/14
Rob can you add some more films like The Virgin Queen, The Opposite Sex, The Bravados, Seven Thieves, Road to Hong Kong, Tales from the Crypt and Empire of the Ants?
littlesue said on 8/May/14
She interviewed in this month's 'Woman and Home' and she says this: "I always wanted to be taller, I'm 5ft 6 but would like to be 5ft 7', obviously measuring herself in one of her mighty wigs!!
said on 2/May/14
Don't you think she lost height? Isn't the height loss around 3 inches on average for a woman at this age?
[Editor Rob: today she looks less yes, maybe 5ft 3, but she maybe had less loss than average at mid 70's.]
truth178cm said on 8/Jul/13
5ft4 sounds right.
lol said on 12/May/13
In the Bravados. Joan Collins and Gregory Peck are both wearing cowboy boots.
But her height stops at the height of his chin and slightly taller than his shoulders
Jupitar said on 20/Feb/13
I remember in a documentary she said she was the perfect height for an actress, 5'6". I always thought this was an exaggeration. I would put her at around 5'4". 5'2" seems too short for her.
J.Lee said on 7/Dec/12
rob she has big hair. You look 4 inches taller than her and if she has a 1 inch advantage, then that's 5 and a half
Arch Stanton said on 26/Nov/12
The blood looks about as unrealistic as you can get! It looks like the red paint from High Plains Drifter! But that's what makes it an enjoyable movie I think, that it is corny. The blind people's home seeking revenge by setting a trap and all, hardly likely!
said on 25/Nov/12
Have you got the DVD Rob? Click Here
Full movie here if you haven't. 10 minutes onwards. Impossible to watch without wanting to prod and press her!! All a red blooded male can do at 15:15 is just watch and admire!
[Editor Rob: I have it somewhere in my house.]
said on 18/Nov/12
Watched Tales from the Crypt yesterday and actually she looked near 5 ft 6. One of the most attractive female bodies I've ever seen. Difficult to watch her in her youth without pure lust! So pert and firm, grrrrr.
[Editor Rob: might need to dig that dvd out now...]
mcfan said on 24/Nov/11
Joan was not 5'2. She was average.
Shaun said on 13/Sep/11
Joan Colllins and Honor Blackman are the hottest over 70s I've ever seen LOL.

If you don't want to talk about height, then leave the height website.
Mr. Tempus said on 15/Jun/11
yep she looks 5'3 or 5'4, and i hope not to sound like a pervert but i think she looks sexy for her age.
said on 11/Jun/11
yep 5'4-ish. Top of her head is level with robs eye
[Editor Rob: today she's not quite 5ft 4. That day she had on around a 2.5 inch heel, so near 1.5 inches footwear extra.]

All this talk about height is really superficial. Height is not the measure of

joan has never had any Plastic surgery????????????????? I've never said it before but seriously laughing my ass off at that. check out the wrinkles on her chest- if keeping out of the sun was that effective it would be smooth and plump like her face, lips, cheeks, brain...if she believes anyone buys that! nothing wrong with surgery, its a persons choice but lying to someones face is ugly.
Seven said on 25/Mar/11
@mofo, JC has never had any PS. She credits her stunning complexion with not having exposed her skin to sunlight since age 21. As for ht, she's no more than 5/4"...and stunning.
mofo said on 21/Mar/11
Rob the only reason she looks young is PLASTIC SURGERY! And in all honesty I think it makes people look stranger than if they just age naturally to be honest(because of all the un-natural stretching!). I agree though she looks 5ft4 flat!
Demiere said on 21/Mar/11
Joan is at least 5'2.5 She wears wigs.Come on
anon said on 20/Mar/11
I know she's hard surgery but still, not many people look that good afterwards, she looks unbelievable.
little sue said on 20/Mar/11
She is the same age and body build as my Mom, my mom has lost about an inch since she went through the Menapause, Joan probably lost a little bit too say maybe just over 5ft 3 now
Brad said on 17/Mar/11
As listed. She wears wigs.
said on 15/Mar/11
Take away the excess hair and draw a line across, she is just above Rob's eyeline, or bang on 5'4". Take away footwear and you get 5'2 1/2". I'm confused. Did she look taller in person?
[Editor Rob: I believe she was 5ft 4 and is a bit under that today.]
said on 15/Mar/11
Nice One Rob! She Looks amazing.
[Editor Rob: for 75 she did look remarkable!]
SAK said on 15/Mar/11
Matt says on 14/Mar/11
wow! 75! she looks like 55 max.
Thats because shes had so much bloody surgery,
Anyway regarding her height, I thought she was 5ft2 as well, but 5ft4 seems more accurate standing next to Rob
Matt said on 14/Mar/11
wow! 75! she looks like 55 max.
with her show adv and hair taken away shed be more like 5ft 3.5 but at 75 she could have been close to 5ft 5
Brad said on 14/Mar/11
Met her after her play with Linda Evans, as listed. Looks incredible in person let alone the photos.
Mathew said on 14/Mar/11
I don't see 5'4" if there's a 1.5" footware advantage over Rob. Maybe the students were on to something lol. Although I'd say 5'3" sounds more realistic than 5'2".
Brad said on 26/Jun/09
I've stood next to her at twice, she's as listed.
littlesue said on 25/Jun/09
I would have put her minimum 5ft 4, she looked taller in Dynasty as she was very slim then, she has a short body with slim hips and slim legs which gives a taller appearance that a pear shape
Doug said on 25/Jun/09
Really? I thought she was smaller and around 5'1" or 5'2".
