Rob, could Bellucci please join the Bond Actors tag?
berta said on 27/Dec/22
cant believe she is 58 years old. i thought she was 45 ish. still remember her like a young woman. In tears of the sun she did look around 170 cm. i think the listing is very good.
Herbert said on 10/Dec/22
Rob, I really think Bellucci is better suited to 5’7.25” peak.

Please see the photos with Bellucci on the Naomie Harris page; if anything, Monica had the edge even though she was over 50.

Are you sure, Rob, that Monica already deserves peak height when she is 57? Take a look at her photos next to Jessica Chastain from 2021: Click Here Click Here Click Here
She still looks close to 5ft 7. I know 5ft 7.25 is the most you would give for her peak height. I think she could have pulled it out standing next to Andrea Bocelli in 2000: Click Here Click Here
I am also sending a photo of her with Gerard Depardieu from 2002, because I noticed that my comment has disappeared: Click Here
Rob, are you sure Monica may have lost half an inch already? Maybe only a quarter inch?
Editor Rob
She could have lost a fraction, whether it's a half inch is another matter - it may not be quite that much.
borat1 said on 24/Sep/21
Hey Rob. What's the lowest range do you see for her presently?? maybe 168-169 seems apt as she was barely taller than lea seydoux.
Editor Rob
Today, 5ft 6-6.5 zone is a range I think isn't exactly dismissed
JOnko said on 8/Sep/21
She got like nothing over 5'7.5". She struggles to look to tall next to Daniel Craig, even with a small pair of heels on her.

RosieP1 said on 27/Aug/21
She lost a few centimetres for sure. 170cm (5’7) is her possible height now, but she was definitely taller before, maybe like 171cm (5’7.5) to almost 172 (5’8). Average guess is too low.
John Moore-162cm said on 17/Mar/21
@Almost 180cm guy- 5ft 7.25? lol.. She's barely 5ft7 and most likely a bit under. She doesn't seem to have lost height, she has looked 5ft 6.75 max with Sharon Stone.
5ft 9.5 is just a joke.
Badar said on 15/Mar/21
Definitely 170 cm flat. 177 is a joke.
Shell said on 19/Feb/21
Those measurements are definitely from her modeling days. And I think she’s got to be 5’7 to have done runway: Click Here
Canson said on 25/Dec/20
5’9.5? Really?
PTH said on 24/Dec/20
The world appears to be focused completely on her height. . 🤔

Her combined proportions are what generates the showstopping effect she creates. She is truly beautiful woman how reminds us how jaw-droppingly sensual a lady can be just by her presence. . Those that overly criticize really ought to just cann it. . . And observe natural sunlight for what it is. . Wonderful. .
mochi said on 28/Nov/20
whatever she is, it’s NOT the 5’9 she’s listed as by her agency!
thedude said on 2/Sep/20
Rob how on earth did you put monica at 5'7 when she was barely (no more than an inch)taller than sharon stone wearing flats?there are numerous picture of monica and deniro together,there is no way on earth she is taller than 5'5.
people get confused by proportions and think someone is taller because they "look" taller,but you should know better
Editor Rob
I could see the argument for 5ft 6 at times, but just 5ft 5? I've never seen enough to think she might be that short.
The French Dude said on 6/Aug/20
One of the most beautiful woman ever, i think she is 5ft 7 3/4, that 5'9 seems imposible to me honestly.
Snow3411 said on 28/Apr/20
I remember an interview about a decade ago, when an (now deceased) Croatian actress, Dolores Lambasa, stated than she was surprised how petite Monica Bellucci was, considering how she's promoted as being tall. Dolores was 5'1 (autopsy report) and wore about 4-5 inch heels.

Here is a photo of the two of them together

Click Here
The hamburger said on 22/Mar/20
I think that she is 5ft 6 range. Click Here on this occasion, she was wearing platform heeled sandals (giving her around 11 cm) and Sharon wearing maybe almost 1 cm sandals. Sharon is slouching on the pictures, but if she stands tall next to Monica, 2 inches is MAXIMUM difference between them that i would guess (although Monica wear high heels). Monica would be 181 with those sandals and if she was really 5tt 7, then she shouls tower Sharon for good 3 inches. In her 20s 5tt 6.5 / maybee weak 5ft 7, but nowadays 5tt 6. Still tallish.
Eric W Tam said on 5/Jan/20
@tahnee, wow, your crack dealer sure does his job alright, yeah, because someone who is shorter than 158 cm can totally have been listed 177 cm. The most extreme case I have ever seen was Alby's actor from Maze Runner being listed as 177 when he's only 165-170 cm. I give Bellucci in her prime 170 no more no less, for I don't smoke Buckingham Palace's area worth of crack 24/7
Gigs said on 23/Dec/19
Her barefoot height looks 5’7 (170cm), or maximum 5’8 (172cm). Her proportions (long legs and arms, long neck, small-ish head relative to body), and her tall shoes often make her look a couple inches taller. With the 5’7 height in consideration, her body measurements look more like 37-28-38 in this picture (she’s wearing a corset to narrow her waist). Her shoe size of 9.5 is pretty average for someone who is 5’7ish. Even when she was doing Malena 20 years ago, her measurements looked 36-26-36 (slim but soft/curvy)...she was probably 35-25-35 in her teens and 20s. She was never as skinny, as narrow or as tall as the other models (who are 34-24-34 or 35-25-35 on average, but 3 inches taller). A 23.5” waist would look narrow and waspish on someone over 5’5, especially with her curves, not possible. Kate Moss at 5’6 was 34-24-34 in her 20s, and you can see how narrow and taut she was, but Monica always had abit more softness and width to her flesh, even at her very thinnest. Love her and she’s absolutely exquisite. I just don’t like when celebs (or their agents) lie about their measurements or height.
Desree said on 28/Nov/19
She is 5ft6. Max 5ft6.5 saw her in Cannes with her gigantic platform shoes and she was no more than 5ft11 with them

I've known people that have worked with monica, and I Went to mozart in the jungle premier last winter .....saw her with Lola Kirk . She is in her usual monster heels , and still one inch shorter than Lola . Lola is around 167 on your site ,monica is 5'4 .No more...... She gives people an impression of being tall , because she always plays "tall parts" , goddesses.her face is incredible , she is born for the big screen. that was why the modeling agency lied about her height to let her in the business, just like Kate moss.she takes beautiful photos, that means more than just being tall. Monica knows she is too short for a model . So she moved to acting in her middle 20S, like Diane Kruger.....btw, she is very self-conscious about her height, not that many European actresses wear her kind of shoes all the time
Lanaka said on 23/Jun/17
This seems too high. I think you have it about 1 inch above her actual height. I go with 5'6 to 5'6.5 at most for Monica
anna said on 18/May/17
23.5 waist? no way! He wears high heels to add height and look more slender. He is beautiful but look heavy, not fat just heavy. How a woman with DD bra cup can only have 35 inch bust size?

Something is really wrong with your measurements. Maybe they were hers when she was in her 20's but not now.
I'd say that her chest and hips are at least 38".
CR said on 12/Apr/17
She is not that thin, comme on. The measurements you write are for models, but she is at least 1 size bigger. I believe she is about M size (38 european)
CS said on 2/Feb/17
She struck me as taller than this but I'll believe it.
Renee said on 29/Nov/16
I think 170 is the least you can grant her, because look at this video Click Here
She is standing near to 191 (at least) tall Mika and he is not even towering over her.
Yes, she is wearing heels, but even if heels are 10-12 cm they dont add 12 cm to your height , they add about 8(ive checked)
And she is 50 years old! She is now shorter than she used to be throughout her life
c-mo said on 24/Apr/16
one of the most beautiful women ever. she is absolutely gorgeous

also perfect height for a woman

She the same height in her monster heels as Christoph Waltz on the red carpet for the Spectre Red carpet events
heelshealheight said on 27/Oct/15
I really don't know what this woman is in those monster heels she seems to always have glued to her feet, but without them she is no more than 5'ft4"-best case scenario for her.
Axaros said on 26/Oct/15
In heels, she looks about 5'11"
Clooby said on 29/Aug/15
Monica is actually about 5'5" (165cm) in her bare feet standing straight. Her body is statuesque and her legs are long which give her a more taller person's appearance. But her height is the average height of a woman.
Lucky Schmucky said on 27/Aug/15
So Naomi Harris is listed as 1.7cm (your site) and Monica is listed as the same. Please explain this picture. Click Here
Editor Rob
in a lot of those photos Monica can appear between 5ft 6 and 7, although whether she has shrunk a cm at 50 I'm not sure. I beleive she is standing with a loose hip in a lot of shots.
M said on 10/Aug/15
@Fray please give us these YouTube links on which Belluci is 1.75m, I am very intres to see and analyse them , because some people claimed that she is even under 1.70m.
M said on 10/Aug/15
@Frey no was she was ever been 5'9" i have heard from the people who worked with her.Also, Eva H. is not 5'11", she was and stil is about 5'9" (before many years in 1990 I was searching her height and it was written everywhere 5'9" for Herzigova, i doubt that se has grown since then more then 1' or maybe she did).
fray said on 6/Aug/15
For anyone here who claims she is UNDER 5'7", check out her runway work in the early 90's (along-side Christy Turlington & Linda Evangelista) and her current Dolce ads with 5'11" Eva H. At her peak she was over 5'9".
littlesue said on 13/Jun/15
Agree on the monster heels, I have worn 3 inch heels for the last 40 years and now suffer with hips and knees, God knows what sort of damage these 5 inches will do!!
T.N.T. said on 11/Jun/15
She's 1,62m max barefoot. With those notorious monster heels aka stilts, she could reach 1,78m, provided of-course she's got two people to support her so she won't fall flat on her face. Just like Taylor Swift with those Frankenstein heels of hers; Calvin sure is a 'supportive' boyfriend.. On a serious note, however, those freaky and hideous heels are a health hazard. These women will soon be suffering from acute back pains and osteoporosis in no time. The price of vanity. Unlimited stupidity..

*i know I'm definitely not 6foot I wrote I know I'm definitely 6ft. I meant to write definitely not.
James C said on 2/Jun/15
I agree Daniel Craig is an good amount taller. I just think it's odd that someone's that 5'7 would say she is 5'9 1/2. That's like an 5'9 1/2 guy claiming 6ft, and I'm 5'9 5'9 1/2 and I know I'm definitely 6ft. Do modeling sites add like 3 inches? That's a big difference.
littlesue said on 22/May/15
No way she is 177! look at the recent pics with Daniel Craig, even in her 4 inch heels she still shorter than Craig.
James C said on 22/May/15
5'9 1/2 how did she get listed at that when she is 5'7, maybe it's the heels. That seems kinda odd.

Yeah not a chance on a 23.5 inch waist now!!! I'm not complaining though!!!
littlesue said on 8/Dec/14
I doubt she has been those measurements for years!! also look at the size of her feet!! I take it thats the American size?? would be a size 8 in British sizes I think, still; big!
Arch Stanton said on 8/Dec/14
Ahh that's better!!
Arch Stanton said on 6/Dec/14
Rob for some reason the photo isn't showing, it's the square again. Looking decent is an understatement!! Can you add Tears of the Sun, Don't Look Back, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Shoot 'Em Up, and perhaps Spectre (upcoming).

Definately more 5ft 6 looking at the line up for the new Bond film, smaller than Naomi Harris
Arch Stanton said on 4/Dec/14
Rob can you add a photo :-) I cant see her as the same height as Naomie here Click Here can you? I know Naomie has heel advantage but I doubt they'd measure the same.
Editor Rob
don't think she's standing as great as she could there, she's looking decent for age 50, but could always have lost a small fraction by now.
tiny said on 21/Jul/14
What a smoking hot body. Monica has hips to die for. I guess she is more like 5'8" and weighs a very healthy 154 lbs.
Lara said on 15/May/14
She's around 5'4. I've seen her less than a year ago in person. However, she's a smart dresser and knows how to add inches to her height (high heels hidden by long trousers and dresses).

Do you really think that she 5'7 "?
clooby said on 13/Nov/11
Monica is no taller than 163cm or 5'4.5". She appeared at a gala with Sharon Stone. Monica was wearing her usual 5" spiked heels and ms. Stone was wearing flat sandals. Stone was still a smidgen taller. Ms. Stone is recorded as being 5'8" or 173cm. So my calcualtions estimate that Monica is 163cm MAX. Sharon remarked on Monica's remarkable beauty while being 10cm taller.
Kostas said on 22/Sep/11
Michael,for some reason my first comment didn't get published...bah...anyway, I wanted to tell you that I wear thick soled sneakers quite often(as they are extra comfy)and I am barely 1" taller in them...Also, do you really think that most european men are 6'-6'2 inches tall?I live in Europe and I dont feel that short at 5'8 (in general).
A 5'6 woman is equivalent to a 5'11 man (bear in mind that men are on average 5 inches taller than women).
Maybe you don't know how to properly convert cm into inches?Not trying to be rude or anything.
Kostas said on 10/Sep/11
oh,by the way,Michael(for some strange reason I think you are a 5'9 woman):a 6 ft man is equivalent to a 5'7 woman
justsomeone said on 20/Jul/11
@ Michael...Your statistics are WAY off.

Most European women are from 5 ft 4 to 5 ft 6. Most men are around 5 ft 10 (maybe 5 ft 11).

Unless you exclude 40 out of 50 European countries...

I bet you have never even been here.
Either that, or you think you are 3 inches taller than you really are (and, therefore, overstimate everyone else's height).

IMO, 5 ft 7 is average, but anything above that is not.

yeah i buy she is 5'7 she looks that tall; she is a really hot busty brunette

Michael said on 18/May/11
5'7" or 5'8" is not considered as tall for women, in book. I would say ladies who are 5'9" and above are considered as tall, depending on where you live. Most average European ladies are between 5'6" to 5'8". With heels they would be around 5'9" to 5'11" which matched the men( 6' to 6'2" barefoot, with shoes 6'1.5" to 6'3.5").
rafa said on 13/Apr/11
She is about 5'7.333333" 171.0 cms barefoot, she is tallish and VERY gorgeus.

between 5'7" and 5'8" (nearer to 5'7") barefoot in my opnion, but with high heels she is much taller.

F50- There is no ideal female height. Tall, short , average height it is the proportions that count. As long as a person is in proprtion, that is all that is important. Some tall girls are beautiful, some average height girls are beautiful and some tiny girls are beautiful. Everyone has different tastes.

F50 said on 17/Nov/10
Monica is in 1,70m range. By any means not smaller than 1,68m and not taller than 1,72m.
For woman 1,70m is ideal height. If woman is over 1,75m, that's really not nice to see (imagine if 1,75m woman puts elegant sandals with 8cm heel - that would "rise" her to 1,83m!; and that's well above average man height).

It's quite hard to believe she is only 5'7". Such a slender frame, but curved at the same time...

According to the,

5' 9" tall Bellucci, who has 35C-24-35 measurements, is also a model and is the face of the perfume "Sicily" by Dolce & Gabbana. Personally, this black-haired beauty was once engaged to actor Nicola Farron (1989-1995) and is currently the wife of actor Vincent Cassel. "Beauty becomes alive and interesting when it's habited."

D. Aspden said on 13/Jul/08
She was wearing a wig that was way past her shoulders and one length with a fringe/bangs with a middle part, only there was no part where you should have seen the white of her scalp. It made me wonder because I'd seen Cannes photos of her with a shorter hairstyle and no bangs just days before.
She was exquisite though!
Josephine said on 12/Jul/08
I always thought she was smaller than that. Maybe because she is naked in a lot of her films and is not wearing heels. She is a lousy actress anyways, she should've stock to "modeling".
Jubug said on 9/Jul/08
D. Aspden - Was she wearing extensions (as opposed to a big wig like Dolly Parton's)? Just curious.
D. Aspden said on 7/Jul/08
I was on the same plane into Heathrow as her recently, she's very pretty but I think I understand why she is never seen without her huge platform shoes. Monica wears wigs, judging by her photos over the last couple of years she always wears a wig in public. Making herself very tall with these massive raised platforms means the lack of parting on top of her head is not noticed.

I only saw her sitting down - and therefore saw the top of the wig with no part. I've never been able to fathom why she is so set on those ugly shoes, even for a walk in the park with her daughter she wears them.
I guess a lot of actresses use wigs to always look perfect, not suggesting there is anything wrong with her hair.
Mattiew_- said on 13/Jun/08
Lol ...

I always thought she was smaller then 176cm , around the 170 mark but I never spotted her platforms ...
This is so ridiculous , she must be under 5'7 for sure because if she was 5'7 she would be 5'9 sporting regular heels , which would be much sexier ...

I don't understand why she puts on so ridiculous shoes ...
Anonymous said on 7/Jun/08
Whatever her height is , she is a gorgeous, curvaceous woman at 44,or (maybe 40) because her BD is Sept.1964 in some sites &1968 in other sites. But 1964 looks more reasonable. I always thought she was 175 -6 cm, now I know why , her heels are worse than Victoria Beckham's.

Oh she is a darling looks about 5'7, my sister who was working in a store in the East village a few months back missed the chance of meeting her , she just left the store when my sister comes upstairs and the other employes told sis she was just there, as a co worker told her ' the fox the guy who played the night fox is here with his wife' the Night Fox and Monica were gone in a flash before my sis could even catch a glimpse of them.

She is actually 5'5 1/2" barefoot. Carrie Ann Moss stood about 2" taller than her at the screening for Matrix Reloaded and Monica was wearing taller heels. Carrie Ann Moss is about 5'8.5" barefoot, because Monica stood at the top of her browline.
Johnny Boy said on 3/Mar/08
Definitely 5'6 or 5'7. nowhere near 5'10, her shoes are almost custom made to push her up to 5'10. In movies she is constantly made to look taller for some reason which makes her look to large on screen. She looks way hotter when she's barefoot, smaller and flowing hair, not massive platforms, tight frocks and pulled back hair.

Met her a few years ago, level sidewalk, chatting ... she was about 5'10 in 3-inch heels. Thus, 5'7 is accurate.

monica bellucci and bruce willis - it is imposible for monica to be 5ft 7in when bruce is only 2 inches taller than her. so, what's bruce's height? 5 ft 9in ?
Anonymous said on 25/Aug/07
Height is a tricky thing to determine, especially when comparing others in photos. Someone could be standing on one knee, slouching or in the backround. The only way to get a real answer is to measure them for the public without shoes.

Stood right next to her, stunningly beautiful, but even in her big heels I felt she was 4 inches shorter than me at 6-3

I believe that her natural height is between 168cm-171cm. No more and no less.
She does seem taller because she has a beautiful frame and shape. There are women who are her height that may look squatty and dumpy by comparison.
Imaginative said on 28/Jun/07
Yes she is not the only actress who wears platform heels with longs dresses to elevate her height. I agree with you guys in the fact that she and most actresses only wear super high platform heels with longs dresses. Why it cant be for fashion if she is hiding them then it must be to make her look tall.

Rose, I dunno, the tallest people I think are from Serbia and Montenegro/dalmatian regions because the average height there is about 6'2. So maybe the anonymous gus is right.
unknown said on 2/May/07
have a look at pictures of Monica Bellucci in the Cannes last year next to Ziyi ZHang who's listed as 165 cm here. THere is quite a small difference between the two

Anoymous from northeast italy, you're saying that the average height there is 179? For who, for women of for men? I think you mean for men, because I am from the netherlands, we are the tallest people of the world, the average height for a woman here is 5 ft 7 1/2 inch. For a man 184 cm. I've been to italy last summer and the most people were small(ler than you're saying). there..the man there were like 5 ft 9 the women all 5 ft 4. I found on the internet that the average height for an italian man is 174 cm(almost 5 ft 9)and for a women 163(5 ft 4). And that's true because italian men and woman are shorter than american men and women.

She's probably wears such high heels because she is short for a model.

I'm from northeast italy. average height over here is 179cm or 5-10 1/2 it's a dinaric region like ex yugoslavia. Don't stereotype italy. I'm 6-2 3/4 by the way. Sorry about my english.

I've seen catwalk photos of her - they must be taken back in the 80's. She wasn't wearing 5" heels in those pix, and she actually didn't look very tall. In those pix she didn't look like the average tall runway model. But her face stood out.
mysterygirl said on 1/Mar/07
she wears 5 inches,i have never seen so huge shoes ever on any actress..i can't understand why she wears that...
Mia said on 1/Mar/07
Franco -- Three inch heels don't add 3 inches to your height. More like 2 inches. If she stands 5'11" with 3" heels, then she is probably closer to 5'9" barefoot.
mysterygirl said on 28/Feb/07
FRANCO,is she pretty in real life as in photos?i'm fan of her and j.lo!:)
Franco said on 27/Feb/07
@Paul: i am italian and a legit 6'4 and i agree italians aren't tall most males are 1.70cm to 1'75cm average and the tallest on the streets you see more are around 1.85cm and rarely 1.88cm or more.

i met Bellucci many many times and even talked to her she had 3 inch heels (took a good look at them and she noticed i was staring at her shoes LOL!) and to me she looked like a weak 1.80cm (5'11) more like a 1.78cm. so without them and considering her age too i'd say she is 1.68cm - 1.70cm without shoes on. ;)
Gonzalo said on 20/Feb/07
All those reports saying she is 5`10 are ridiculous. She looks around 5`7. She is gorgeous.
Paul said on 19/Feb/07
I agree with you man, She's any man's fantasy. What a GOddess!
Justin said on 17/Feb/07
I only discovered Monica recently from her movie Malena; wow what a woman God has landed amongst us ? She embodies the wild fantasies of men that like a classical beauty with black hair and dreamy brown eyes. She is a perfect 10. Her Italian warmth jumps at one through her photographs. If there was a woman in our times that rivals any women of the past where men fought great wars over them then in our time Monica Bellucci is the one. She embodies the spirit and looks of Venus today. Bravo ~~ way to go Monica. We love you.
paul said on 16/Feb/07
Did anyone see Malena? see looks huge next to all the italians in the movie. Of course, italians are not tall. She looked like 6 or 6'1 with heels. But those were...5 inches heels...
Marllon said on 13/Feb/07
She is 5'10½" (179cm) tall according to several sites, one of them being this one:

5'7 170cm 5'7 16 5'71/4, 5'7 1/2 any of those seems about right is her real height.

Anon - the megamules might be advertised as 7-inch, giving 6-inches in actual gain. I wonder how women don't fall over on those things!
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/07
Thanks Coffeecakes for the pix. I like the one of her wearing 6 in. platforms to go to the ATM. She consistently wears 4-6 in. heels, whether in movies, press photos or walking in the street. She started out as a model though she was too short to do runway. I think she sees herself as a 5'10" woman when she is really about 5'7".
mysterygirl said on 28/Jan/07
i said and say it again she is 168 max
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/07
Those platform shoes under her evening dresses look 6 inches high. How much height does 6" platforms add to your height? I know 6" heels don't add 6" to your height. It's a bit less. In any case, her platforms are the highest I've seen worn by actresses. She's above-average height so I wonder why she feels the need to wear such gigantic shoes all the time.
Coffeecakes said on 22/Jan/07

Where does she find those shoes?

Editor Rob
lol, I'm going to link that at the top, those are mega platforms.
supes78 said on 21/Jan/07
I really thought she looked like a legitamte 5'9", but this is based on her film roles, which can't be considered credible. Still, 5'7" is pretty tall for a girl.
bombay rocker said on 21/Jan/07
Her heels are enormous, are you sure rob they are just 4 inches, to me they look like 6 inches. Look at the pics posted by coffeecakes. Huge heels.

Editor Rob
yes, the red ones are the largest I've seen on her - huge, near 6 inch total with a platform that thick. Normal for her is 4 inch!
Coffeecakes said on 21/Jan/07
I think at most she would be around 5'7. She wears those gigantic shoes and yet she never towers over anyone. I would say she is 5'6.5
Her typical type of shoe.

You have Vincent listed as 6'1.25 and she is still shorter than he.

rick said on 9/Oct/06
5'9" is not 179 cms but 175 !!! You can stop you searches she's 170 cms ( 5'7" )
it was her official height for few years when she worked for Elite Agency. We had the proove a lot of times. One day, a magazine did a mystake ( they put 177 cms) what is was always translated by 5'9";5'10" or 5'9.5". Today 179 cms are often given but it's an ironic height. We will find 185 cms soon !!!
Naima said on 4/Oct/06
Yet know I am sure, I did some searches : that's 179cm so 5'9
Naima said on 3/Oct/06
I used to read that it's 179cm, she is very tall, she was a model and when she is next tall actors as Vincent Cassel or Samuel le Bihan: she does'nt look like 172cm
Caro said on 13/Sep/06
On the picture with Keanu she looks about 5'7. That's exactly how me (5'7 tall) and my 6'2 husband look when I were my high heels. Of course we are way better looking (he he).
Ayreon said on 3/Aug/06
Noo waay! She must be 5'8 at least. 5'5? What have you been on lately?!?
clooby said on 26/May/06
Monica is most likely about 5'5" in her barefeet. She appears to be a taller woman , because she has that beautiful statuesque look. With her long developed and shapely legs, broad hips and a small head. It doesn't matter anyway. 5'5' is a good height for a woman, especially for a beautiful and sexy woman as her.
bismarck said on 10/May/06
in the movie passion of the christ , she looked pretty tall , i'd say somewhere around 5'10" that is only because she was most probably wearing heels under all that ancient clothing , even though , she is a tall female but barefoot , no bigger than 5'7"
Baroness said on 17/Apr/06
At best 5'8" - in spite of wearing huge platform shoes, she doesn't look that tall next to her co-stars. Monica has always said she was "too small" for the catwalk.
rick said on 15/Apr/06
Again 179 is a myth. Looks at that. Monica and Keanu (6-2 with shoes)
Click Here
Looks at the shoes ( 4.5 inches of heals )
Click Here
So she looks 2.5 inches shorter than Keanu who's 6'2" with shoes and she has 4.5 of heals. 6'2" - 2.5 - 4.5 = 5'7" !!! An height wich was official for her at her debut. My calculations are magic!!!

Anonymous said on 13/Apr/06
She is really 5'11 = 179 cm
It is very interesting, here to see, that she is only 171 cm. LOL!! In pictures, next to stand and what she sad about her height, that she is 179 cm.
Ellania said on 17/Mar/06
Correctin: I mean 5'8 seems about right
Ellania said on 15/Mar/06
Yeah, on average modeling agencies give girls an average of one and a half inches, so 5'7.5 seems about right to me.
rick said on 9/Dec/05
No NO No !!! Look at the pics I posted on august the 18.She looks 6 cms smaller than Keanu Reeves who is 6'2"(not more) with his schoes. Well, she looks around 182 max with 11/12 cms of heals. She's not more than 170/171.
dmeyer said on 9/Dec/05
after watching getty images i think she looks 6 feet or 5'11 in 4" heels i think she is close to 5'8" because he husband is around 190 cm with shoes of course she can apear as a 5'10 er with heels
dmeyer said on 9/Dec/05
she doesnt look tall compare to willis at best 5'8"
tom said on 24/Sep/05
i am sure that monica is shorter than 170 cm
she is about 168 cm
rick said on 18/Aug/05
Yes, I agree, if Keanu Reeves is 6'1", Monica is not more than 5'7" !!! She looks around 6/7 cms smaller than Keanu who is with shoes around 188. We could say 181/182 with monster shoes (I thinck 11 or 12 cms of heals).Yes we find 170. Monica and Keanu=
Look at the shoes =
yeah said on 23/Jun/05
Check this picture

There is she standing besides Spike Lee who is 5' 5", so I think she is possible 5' 7".
arinara said on 23/May/05
I agree with Smoke. No way she is that tall. Just check her besides Bruce Willis!!! She look at least 4 inches shorter than him and Monica usually wears 3/4 inches heels. I don't think she is even 5'7 wich is nicer for me. Northern girls are taller but 90% or more of italian women are under 5'7...
Smoke said on 4/May/05
Rick you gave yourself away right there, the fact that the 5'9.5" official height is a "Supermodel" listing, that right there says it's a false height. Again, I think the pictures I posted show that her height is very much false. Just another 5'7" girl boosting herself up for the sake of modelling gigs.
rick said on 3/May/05

JosephW said on 29/Apr/05
Then we should hear what she says about her height... hmmm
Smoke said on 28/Apr/05
Unless Bruce is really the 6'1" that he claims, Monica has to stand below this height! That last picture was a little bit outrageous, but here is one that is more accurate, Monica clearly looks a solid 4 inches shorter than Bruce, who is in the 5'11"-6'0" range. I guess it's just harder to convince people of women who lie about their height, than it is to point out men who do it! Sure Monica will always look tall whenever she in her 3-4 inch heals, heck she is still tallish at 5'7"-5'8", but the 5'9"-5'10" claimed by her (most likely for modelling purposes) is a clear fabrication.

Smoke said on 27/Apr/05
Here's a picture to confirm my hunch that Bellucci's height is one of the most exaggerated of all Hollywood women. She really did look quite short next to Bruce Willis (5'11"-6'0") in Tears of the Sun, here is a picture to confirm this. I say Bruce has 4 inches on her, and I think I'm being kind. 5'7"-5'8".
Smoke said on 26/Apr/05
JosephWilson, yes she is tall for a woman. But I kind of question this listing for her, having seen her beside Bruce Willis (181/182 cm at the very most) she looks a good 3-4 inches shorter than him. Now that would put her at about the 5'8" mark, to me that's perfect height for a woman. I've always thought of her as being listed as taller than she actually she is.
rick said on 17/Mar/05
Yes, most of sites give 5'9 or 5'10 and very often 1m77.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight or shoe size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
