Katey Sagal's Height
5ft 8 (172.7 cm)
Peak height was 5ft 9 (175.3 cm)
American actress best known for roles in tv series Married with Children, 8 Simple Rules and Sons of Anarchy. She said in an E! Extreme CloseUp interview, "I had no dates. I was about 6 feet, well not 6 feet. I was, I'm 5'9" now. By the time I was in seventh grade I was 5'7" and all the guys, the little boys, were coming up to my waist, so I really thought, you know, 'dates' was out of the question. I was just made fun of a lot because I was so tall and voluptuous."

No one should make fun of anyone and nothing should be out of the question.

Just watched the bowling episode, she's got the same shoes as Ed, he's like 5 or 6 inches over her. No more that 174 peak I think but she always wore heels, and is a slender, old fashion kind of lady, appears a lot taller

Only just started S.O.A and she is clearly a tall woman. Eye to eye with almost 6ft Hunnam in heels. So 5ft 8in seems spot on.

She's at most 5-7. Always wears very high heels and still doesn't tower over her 5-9ish husband. Footwear is everything in Hollywood.

I would have thought they would cast a tall woman to make casting her children easier. But according to this site Christina Applegate is 5'5". She looks more than 3 inches shorter than Katey, but Peggy Bundy always had really poofy hair.
I've always had a thing for her even though I am closer to the age of the people who played her children on that show.

dont think she was 175 prime. back in 2004 with terry o quinn she looked way shorter than 9 cm. she looked 175 with ed o niel but sha had very high heels on in that show?
Jani said on 4/Aug/17
Not sure about the 175cm peak but 173cm nowadays is a pretty good shout but I would downgrade her to about 171-172cm barefoot. I wouldn't go lower than 171cm.

She was no less than 5'8" prime. She wasn't much shorter than Ed O'Neill was

Another phony 5ft6/5ft7 "actress" milking her above average height to sell herself as a tall woman in Hollyweird. Nice try, but every single acting and public appearances sport high heels every single time just like the above pic. The calves don't lie, Peggy !

Tall attractive woman hand likes heels making her taller.
Kinda doubt she had that much trouble with dates she's gorgeous.

In an "8 Simple Rules" episode Kaley Cuoco doesn't want her mom (Katey) to know who she's phoning, and warns them "If a tall woman answers, hang up!"
Later the phone rings, Katey answers it, and after a short pause says "I don't know...5' 8" ?"

She also voiced Leela in Futurama.

Rob, could she be 5'7.5? You think she was really 5'9?
med said on 19/Aug/14
Rob,what makes you think she lost 2 cm?
Glen said on 31/Jul/14
Same! I thought she was 6 ft 1!
tribbles said on 30/Apr/14

I am a girl who is 5'9&1/2, and I Totally understand what Katey IUD saying...I also was 5'7 by middle school, and like she says, I FELT like a giant! Boys don't grow as fast, they were so short!

Looks 5'7 in the picture.

5 feet 10.

Beau, it's called reading between the lines. She said that by grade 7 she was 5"7 and then later when she got to an age of dating she was 5"9 ~ but probably felt 6 feet tall. She looks 5"9 or more, especially next to Ally Walker who is listed at 5"10 and looks it. Lovely lady with a beautiful singing voice too!

I´m not one for using names like delusinal liar, but damn, she really is.
5´7 in the 7th grade? Then 6´0 and now 5´9? Really? I think I peed a little when I read that. She has never seen 5´9 nevermind 6´0. At most she´s a little over 5´7. Seriously, this is way over the top. Even in 5 inch heels she´s under 6´3ish Jimmy Smits eyelevel.
j said on 12/Sep/11
she looks around 5`8 to 5`10
Jason W said on 15/Feb/11
she always wore high heals in MWC to get her up to Ed's 6 to 6'1 frame.
Legend said on 9/Jan/11
she looks 5'8
Tara V. said on 30/Dec/10
big deal, I'm also 5'9" and some girls called me "stretch".
jtm said on 26/Nov/10
i always thought she was no more than 5'8 but mr.r are you sure about 5'5-5'6?
Mr. R said on 25/Nov/10
I was backstage with her last nite after her play in LA, This is waaaaay too high. She is closer to 5-6 at best.
Jlee said on 31/Oct/08
Yes, anonymous, a MONSTER. she is huge. A talll tall VERY tall girl

In MWC she looks like 5'11 with the heels and hair lol

George: Which John are you talking about?
PaleCabbage said on 27/Sep/08
I'm guessing 5'8, as that's what was claimed in 8 simple rules. She doesn't exactly tower over the 8SP cast, who are mostly fairly short
George said on 14/Sep/08
5'10", she's just a tad smaller than John who's about 5'11"
jon said on 19/Aug/08
meet her in person about a year ago...shes is so hot...im 5'11 and i was just a bit taller....5'10 seems closer to actual height
repoob said on 28/Aug/07
I met her, along with other cast members of 8 Simple Rules during the first season. She is 5'8". Seems taller, I know, with the hair, and the heels. But she's not.
sylvie said on 15/Jun/07
If you've seen her on 8 Simple Rules, she's almost as tall as John Ritter was. I'dm say 5'9" is about right.
dmeyer said on 27/Oct/06
hey rob whi dont you list claudia shiffer
sam said on 11/Jul/06
She always seemed tall to me, but she does look several inches shorter than Terry O'Quinn in her appearances on Lost. She is about the same height relative to him that Jennifer Garner was next to him.
BOOM said on 24/May/06
in the TV show * simple rules at one point when someone asks her how tall she is; she says "i dunno, around 5'8"."
[Editor Rob: thanks, yes, could be shrinking, she popped up once in Lost and beside the bald guy she maybe could've been a tad shorter than 5ft 9]
Horatio said on 15/Jan/06
5'9" is probably right or maybe even less. She always wore very high heels on Married With Children.
