The only thing that I have seen Molly in is 'The Stand', and in that, she looks at least 5ft8.5, so that's what I am going to put!

At least 1.5 inches shorter than Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer in Pretty In Pink. They all seemed to wear flat shoes.
5'6'' or 5'6.5'' must be closer to reality.

I met Molly this morning. We chatted for about a minute, and I can honestly say she's definetely not under 5ft 8in.

Did she have some massive growth spurt after 16? I mean, she looked barely taller than Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club, but now the height difference between them is huge.

the previous posters must have confused molly with ally sheedy because she had an immediately noticeable 3+ inches on estevez in the movie.
must have grown a fair bit between 1984 and 86 tho because in sixteen candles she looked average yet in pretty in pink was as tall as andrew mccarthy.

She really doesn't look 5'8 at all, or this means Emilio Estevez is like 5'9 because on The Breakfast Club she is his height wearing small heels

How can she be 5ft. 8in. when she looks about the same height as emilio estevez and he is listed as being 5ft. 4in. ???

This is shocking to me. Never thought Molly was this tall. Elizabeth you're right, Molly looks a solid 5'9.

Robert Downey Jr. was a hair taller than her in Pickup Artist.

she's god damn hot, loved her in THE STAND.
hmm looks 5'8
[Editor Rob: in These pics
, I met the girl molly is standing with last month, who is 171-2cm, so molly really in 5ft 8 range]

I think she's more like 5'9". If you see in the picture below, she's standing next to Katie Holmes and is as tall as her (and she has her leg bent, so she is not standing up completely straight. Definitely taller than listed, in my opinion.
Ummm, nevermind it's not letting me link the picture even though I used tinypic. I'll try and post in a different comment, or something.

Actually I was average.I wasnt called short until 20.in fact,I never realised I was short cause all my friends were 5-7 to 5-9.

Glenn, just curious, were you also around average height as a kid?....
Glenn said on 29/Jan/07
5-8? she gave me an illusion of 6ft!
sam said on 28/Jan/07
