She has a true statuesque figure and so seems to be even taller than what she really is. In most films she towers not only female characters but also male ones.

This listing is correct but mariska wears higher heeled shoes.

Mujer de exuberantes formas anatómicas expresadas en la generosidad de unas enormes glándulas mamarias y en un torso que desciende cadencioso para agotarse en un regio trasero de voluptuosas caderas, custodias de una ardiente hendidura natural, incitadora a escanciar en sus lujuriosas reconditeces, el néctar vital, en un supremo coito y un avasallador orgasmo simultáneo.

50 is kind of early to have a noticeable height loss, I think she can still have pretty good posture and hasn't lost much if any height yet.

she's 50, almost 51. probably shrunk a bit by now.
Mariska 5'8" peak, 5'7.5" today.

She's a good-looking older woman, that picture is uh...distracting.

She must wear generous heels on SVU. At times she looks about as tall as Ice-T and Danny Pino.
Sam said on 22/Sep/14
Can look 5'8" range on the show, not a flat 5'7" IMO. At times she's close to taller actress in the 5'9"-5'10" range but wears generous heels at times.

I think she 5'7

I stood next to her on a charity event for a couple of minutes. I'm 6'1. She almost reached my hight with the heel. I'd say she's about 5'7, max. 5'8. Stunning in person by the way.

Sounds about right"”I was thinking more like 5'8. They usually don't show her footwear, but she dosen't look that much shorter than Meloni in most episodes. I should know I've seen like every episode, can't get enough ;)

Here's a pic of her on the set and it doesn't look like her heels are very large Click Here , and this pic Click Here is her and Meloni the same day"”they usually look like this standing together in episodes; maybe plus an inch difference. There's one episode when they went undercover at a sex club, and Mariska was wearing a cocktail dress and I'm assuming decent sized heels to go with it cuz they were about eye level, maybe 0.5-1" shorter, and like Rob so elegantly illustrated the most you can expect from most high heels is 2-3.25" Click Here

I met her yesterday, and she is so much taller than me! Add that to the fact that she's wearing heels and I look like a midget. But that was the happiest day of my life, meeting ehr.

HEr estimated height seems to be accurate too .
glenn said on 9/Jul/07
yes,she had small heels i think briohn.
Mr. R said on 9/Jul/07
Who Cares?? She is hot!! Sometimes she resembles her mother, Jayne Mansfield, and sometimes she looks more like her father, bodybuilder Mickey Hargitay.
Franco said on 6/Jul/07
that Glenn picture goes straight into my Cell Phone wallpaper! ROFL!
he's so shocked at this woman beauty....hahahah love it!

she had heels for sure and looks no less than 175-176cm so 172cm could be right.
BriOnH said on 20/May/07
Was she wearing heels there Glenn? She looks younger in that photo - very beautiful!
antron said on 2/May/07
she is slouching Franco, and Glenn's lean is minimal
Franco said on 30/Apr/07
if in that pic she got heels and glenn is leaning, she looks 5'8 this means 5'6 without shoes.
Boxing Fighter said on 7/Feb/07
She looks beautiful and tall in that picture. I agree with Antron, 5ft8.
CoolJ said on 31/Jan/07
Sorry... 43.. Wow
CoolJ said on 31/Jan/07
Looks great considering she's 40.. I think Glenn had an involuntary reaction in that pic judging from the look on his face!

Do you have a height estimate for Mariska, Glenn? And was this picture taken on the run?
Editor Rob said on 10/Dec/06
Here is glenn and I'm sure mariska.

I've always thought she was really tall but in a recent(this year, season 7) episode of law and order she is getting her mug shot photo taken and her head comes up to the 65' mark (5'5). no higher than that. strange, isn't it? and im guessing she wasn't wearing completely flat shoes in that scene...could be even shorter
mm said on 18/Jun/06
I would actually give her 5'7 on the dot, considering she always wears chunky heels that give her about 2.5 inches... and compared to Christopher Meloni, her co-star on SVU who is 6'0, she's 2.5 inches shorter than him, minus the other 2.5 inches from her heels, you get 5'7.
CoolJ said on 19/Jan/06
She's easily 1.5" shorter than Grace in that photo.. Take off the average height for heels.. Probably 2" or so.. and we're left with... 5'7 1/2"!

BTW, I think that height is right on.. I could buy 172cm sometimes when I look at her, but she's always sporting the chunky shoes.
