There's nowt wrong with being a bit silly, as it gives us a feel good factor which in turn boosts our mental and physical health, those Frank Spencer DVD's must be worth their weight in gold!
Too true Sandy, that is precisely the sort of thing young kids would come out with, that is a good point! However in all honesty, from the bottom up, you could consider a lake to have a height but people don't usually think about it like that!
I can't swim either Sandy, my EB limited me in this way as I have always had open wounds which in turn need dressings. It's a shame because swimming is a very relaxing and healthy thing to do with ones time, but even without EB I may have been hampered because I have always felt uncomfortable about going underwater water and if you swim you will probably find that this fate will become you now and again
Well I have cast my vote a couple of days ago so I probably brought the average down! You probably did the same! I certainly think she looks more 5'7" than 5'8", I think the average vote is probably more realistic now in terms of her height!

@ Nik - Oh thank you! I was being a bit silly, but I quite enjoy being silly! Watching Frank Spencer must be rubbing off on me!
Quote: "the heights of lakes!" If I am being silly, then I think you have joined me! That sounds hilarious - the sort of thing you would hear a small kid come out with instead of depth!
I can't see myself standing at the bottom of a lake EVER as it is far too dangerous for someone who cannot swim a stroke! I would love to have learnt, but I had quite a serious fear* of getting water in my ears when I was a youngster! Hence, I never learnt!
So we both agree that Lake is either side of 5ft7, which tallies up with the 'average guess' on Lake's page! I'd like to think that after nearly a whole year of having height at the forefront of our minds, our guesses are becoming that much more accurate, wouldn't you? 😉
* My autocorrect tried to change the word 'fear', and one of the alternatives I was given was 'fart'!

@ Sandy Cowell - Hey!
What a great comment to find on this new comments page! True, geographical lakes have a depth, a length and a width! However if you are standing at the bottom of a lake wouldn't it have a height then? Perhaps I am the only person silly enough to have thought this, nobody else talks about the heights of lakes. But I will talk about Lake Bell's height,, and like you, I think that she is shy of the 5'7.5" mark and she certainly looks more likely to be 5'7" than 5'8". I reckon that she hovers around the 5'7" mark barefooted, maybe a little bit below, a little bit above, or bang on 5'7"! I think your call is a good one but I could see anywhere from 5'6.75" - 5'7.25" as her most likely height!

Her name sounds like a geographical feature you might find on a map! There must be loads of them in the world dotted about!
This Lake Bell will be the only one with a height, unless there are any other people called 'Lake'! (Bell is a common enough surname.) Most will have a depth, a length and a width!
This Lake can have 5ft7!

Just google photos of Lake Bell with Simon Pegg and you can easily confirm that she's below 5'7". Films aren't reliable because of camera angles and everyone is made to look taller, slimmer and younger. The best way to find out is to see these folks next to truly tall people at social events where you can easily see their footwear. That said, there are loads of photos where she's standing right beside Pegg, and even in heels and her hair in a high bun, she's still noticeably shorter than Pegg (Rob's got him here as 5'9"). As for being a volleyball player, there are loads of women her age (she's near 40) who are shorter than 5'7" and play volleyball. We see taller women nowadays because the younger generations are getting taller and taller.

Looked taller than I expected when I flipped the channels to No Strings Attached with Ashton Kutcher, she looked probably a solid 5'8" there (don't care for Kutcher, so kept flipping). I think at times she does look a fraction under otherwise.

Some sites say she's 6'2". What's that about??
Kip said on 2/Feb/06
She's got to be at least 5'11 or over. Lake Bell was a professional volleyball player before she turned actress. How many pro VB players do you see on tv or in the olympics that are short?? Only the setters, and even then they are taller than us.

Oh, good! Her height is posted! Well,that´s more like it! 5'8/173 cm makes a lot of more sense than 6'0, or what´s even worse the height of 6'2, that some sites give her!
