I wanted to be an actress - I didn't want to be a model, I felt myself choking to death. I hated it with a passion. I got hurt very easily. I mean, I'd come in weighing 115 pounds, and I'm 5 feet 7 Β½, and I'd be told I was 10 pounds too heavy! And I still wasn't eating a damn thing!

I read the interview mentioned above - I remember it vividly, and thought how disgustingly Kim had been treated.

She looked perfect in 9 1/2 Weeks, which I saw at the pictures in August 1986. I also saw her in the film No Mercy, in which she starred with Richard Gere.

I paid to see Batman at the cinema too, because I liked the cast, which included Kim and Jack Nicholson. It’s a theme that I generally grew out of well before I reached 10, but I still liked Doctor Who!

So after three trips to see her at the pictures, I genuinely believed Kim to be 5ft7, but her super-slim figure will have helped her look taller.

No, she's never been over 5ft 6 1/2

She looked the flat 5’8” in Batman

I think the height given is correct. Regarding some previous comments, it was always the case that most women fell into a far smaller height range than did men, but nowadays there seems to be a far greater height range among women also. When I'm out I see petite women, and also women of nearly 6ft all over the place. I often wonder whether the average height of men and women will eventually become the same in a few generations.

5'6.5 is really borderline upper average and tall for a woman, sort of like 5'11.5 for a guy, a lot of people would consider her tall. Audrey hepburn would have been considered tall for her generation.

I still go on anything over 5ft 6 being tall for female and anything under 5ft 3 short. Much more simpilar, lol

5ft9 is hysterical

Batman was right , she weighed a little more than 108.

Gorgeous woman aged quite well not at all on the tall side this may be a good peak.
By the late 90s she was looking shorter 2000s shorter still close to average.
Never looked 5 9 unless she had heels on also would have been same as most of la confidential which she wasn't.

Indeed a beautiful woman 5'7

Looked 168 in "batman".
Hijopotamus said on 17/Jul/17
Perfect height for a woman that age.
She was physically too perfect...
Underrated actress because of her beauty.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Apr/17
Could you please consider at some stage adding 'Final Analysis' and 'the Door in the Floor' to her credits please Rob!
I finished the first film last night and her normally innocent appearance belies what she really is, though it was the result of a traumatic childhood of abuse. I think it's definitely worth adding as is 'No Mercy', both of which deserved an acting accolade!
So that makes 3 films worth adding!
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Apr/17
I am interrupting my film, 'Final Analysis', to write a comment about Kim Basinger.
She stars in this with Richard Gere, Uma Thurman and Eric Roberts and, though I haven't yet seen Kim stand side by side with Uma, which I had hoped to do, I have with the male cast members, and she looks the 5ft6.5 - 5ft7 written for her here!
I so enjoyed her performance in '9 1/2 Weeks', back in '86, that I went on to see her in 'No Mercy', again with Richard Gere, and 'Blind Date', a comedy with Bruce Willis - all at different cinemas! Obviously, as she was my 'girl crush' of that time, I read a few articles about her and none of them said she was under 5ft7! However, I am going along with 5ft6.5, as 5ft7 might have been written as it sounds more glamorous!
What I liked, and still do, about Kim is that she is vulnerable and innocent looking, yet scorchingly sexy at the same time! She comes over in film as though she's completely oblivious to her own beauty, which is such a rare and delightful trait!
When I've finished this, I have 'The Door in the Floor' to watch, and in this film she stars with Jeff Bridges, and that should prove to be an irresistible watch to me, as I rate them both!

I think she's 5'7.5" tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/17
5ft9 and 5ft4 are both ridiculous
Marquis said on 6/Feb/17
Looks 5'7". The claims of 5'3" by some here are pretty hilarious.
anyonmious said on 23/Dec/16
Peak height is 5'6" and her present height is 5'4.5"
Arch Stanton said on 22/Dec/16
The Nice Guys I mean LOL., Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Dec/16
She's not looking so good nowadays since the surgery. I saw The Nice Boys the other night and sadly Kim was looking very plastic in it facially. Sitll very attractive but it's ruined her beauty. It's sad that they can't let these actresses grow old gracefully and still get roles. Kim would have looked amazing even at 70 naturally.
John said on 13/Oct/16
Nope, she cant be, I thought she was like 5ft 5.5 next to 5ft 8 eminem in 8 Mile
Arch Stanton said on 2/Aug/16
Rob can you add 8 Mile, The Marrying Man, Never Say Never Again, My Stepmother is an Alien and The Real McCoy? Not disputing that she's "the most beautiful woman in the world" as she's breathtakingly beautiful, but Ireland really needs to stop using Big G'S height chart ;-)!

Saw grudge Match tonight. Same height as Stallone. 5'7".
Bishop said on 14/Jun/15
Ireland probably said that to make her 6'2" claim seem right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jun/15
According to Ireland she's 5ft9

jake said on 8/Jun/15
5'7" when she was younger. Looked 5'8" often, probably due to her thinness.
M said on 27/Apr/15
I thought she was taller like 5'8" - she looks quite tall in all films where she has acted.
Arch Stanton said on 31/Dec/13
Looks spot on next to Russell Crowe in LA Confidential.
Just said on 8/Nov/13
In LA Confidential she looked very short. I always thought she's 5 foot 3 max.
Goerge said on 5/Aug/13
Peak Height (171cm) now (169cm)
Anonymous said on 5/Jun/09
On one site she is listed as 168cms which is 5ft 6 or slightly over which would make her a good 5ft 7 plus in shoes. So that probarbly is her true height.
JOSH said on 21/Apr/09
I would give her about 5ft 6 and a half as her lowest height barefoot. She has looked tall at times but i would give her about 5ft 8 or so in hells. In batman she even looked taller than jack nicholson in 1 or 2 scenes but she could have been in hells. To me she could even have been the most gorgeous girl on screen ever.
R said on 26/Jan/09
Her daughter, Ireland, is 13 years old and looks to be at least 5'9"!
Anonymous said on 19/Sep/08
In batman both keaton and nicholson looked about and inch and a bit taller than basinger and if they are both around the 5ft 9 mark then she is a certain 5ft 7 or a bit over even.
JOSH said on 30/May/08
She looked tall in batman. She looked near the same height as michael keaton and jack nicholson. So at least 5ft 7 or a bit over.
leonari said on 27/May/06
