I don't think that Olivia comes over as taller in films at all. The first performance of hers I saw was in the excellent 'Jesus of Nazareth' when I was 16. I found her portrayal of Jesus's Mother, Mary, truly mesmerising and her crying when He was on the cross was so heartfelt. Next to Robert Powell's 5ft8.5, you could see she wasn't tall. In fact, I thought Robert might be taller than he actually is from the epic Franco Zeffirelli production, as did my Mum.
Then I saw Olivia in 'Black Christmas', an early 'slasher' film, when she'll have been 23 years of age (1974), and then, some 16 years later, she played Norman Bates's mother in 'Psycho IV - The Beginning', and she still looked as girlish as ever at 39 in the days when surgery wasn't quite so much the norm. (Excuse the pun, but I couldn't resist it!)
As there is just the one box, Olivia can have her full five foot two. 😁👍💐

On her official website she states that she has been 5'2" ever since Romeo and Juliet so I would go with that.

Gorgeous, looks a lot younger than she is even now too. I guessed about 5 ft2 in Romeo and Juliet.

Your Daily Mail interviewer was right. Olivia Hussey is/was only around 5'2".

I M D B has her at 5'4.5 but I think 5'3" is more realistic.

I don't believe this is the correct height. I searched 'Olivia Hussey height' on google and almost all websites stated she was 5'6.5".
