RIP Olivia. Can't believe she spent 30 years battling breast cancer.

5ft 6.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Aug/22
RIP indeed. Seemed like a lovely person. I didn't think of her as tall, so 5 ft 6 seems about right.

I met Olivia at a Christmas party in 1988 for her company Koala Blue. She was very nice and down to earth but at leas 1.5 perhaps even 2 inches shorter than my 5’7” height. I would say a strong 5’5”, no more

Also i doubt she is less than 5'5.5, she looks quite tall.
The French Dude said on 6/Aug/20
I through she was taller!, like 1,70(5'7), she has that classic beauty and had long legs when she was young, one of the most beautiful women i ever seen, she gets 5'6.5 for me!

πŸŽ‚πŸ˜„πŸŽˆ Happy Birthday Olivia! πŸŽˆπŸ˜„πŸŽ‚

Wishing ONJ a Very Happy 71st Birthday!

Still can't get over that she's 5ft6! I thought 5ft4 - 5ft4.5 at most.

I'm not docking her height too much on her Birthday though...

5ft5.5 - by now.

I inadvertently found Olivia's height online while looking for Fenella Fielding, because both have been in the news. I am really surprised that she is as tall as 5ft6 because I read that she was 5ft4 and found it easy to believe. Still, I have never seen 'Grease' in its entirety, just little bits of it, so maybe I should! Compared to the 6ft John Travolta, she did look 5ft4 to my eyes, anyway...

5ft6 it shall be!

Olivia said she's 5'6" so I belueve her.

@ Scarlett Rose - I enjoyed the end of your comment and your choice of emojis!

I thought ONJ was about an average 5ft4 or 5! I am quite surprised that she is 5ft6!
Scarlett Rose said on 21/May/17
@ Julie. I think jpdb is pulling your leg, winding you up, yanking your chain. No way is ONJ petite. She has long arms and your arm span is your natural height. My mother taught me that as a teenager. ONJ is above average in height, but I wouldn't say 5 feet, 8 inches tall.

@ jpdb. What a load of πŸ“ and πŸ‚ or even πŸ‚πŸ’©, you wind-up merchant 😝
Julie said on 22/Aug/16
Jpdb - Sorry, but you're wrong. I've met Olivia on several occasions and stood next to Her when she wore flat tennis shoes (after she played a charity tennis match). She is 5'6" (without heels). She is the same height as me, maybe even 1/2" taller. How tall are you? She has a petite frame but she is definitely 5'6". I'll post my pic with her to prove it :)
jpdb said on 12/Jul/16
as if! i've met livvy 7 years ago & the only way she's 5'6" is when she's wearing 5" heels! she'd only be about 5'1" flat footed! 5'2" at best!!
deedee said on 16/Mar/15
she has always been beautiful in my opinion.

Olivia is 5'6, she is a very sexy women even now,She rocked in Grease, In the final scene she had high heels on, Olivia is very pretty and a top chick.
glenn said on 10/Nov/08
brad is right.she wasnt wearing heels either.
Brad said on 10/Nov/08
She's 5' 6" on the nose. At 5' 3" that would make Glenn 5'4".
Lori said on 29/Oct/08
I met her at a neighborhood picnic in Malibu in 2002, and she's not 5'6". I would guess she's closer to 5'3" or 5'4" at the most. Very tiny. And she had flats on for sure, since it was a casual party with neighbors.
Julie said on 16/Aug/07
No she's 5'6" me. She commented how she and I were the exact same height as we took pictures.
RICHARD said on 11/Aug/07
Looks taller than Glenn in this picture. Glenn looks 5'6 and Olivia looks 5'8
Julie said on 6/Aug/07
I've met Olivia on about four different occasions and have taken pictures with her. She's the same height at me - 5'6"
Glenn said on 17/Jan/07

Johaaanel said on 16/Jan/07
either that is not newton-john or glenn had his feet chopped of.... that women look more like 5-8
Glenn said on 15/Jan/07
5-8? interesting.
Robert.R said on 14/Jan/07
From what I understood she was 5'8" in the early seventies.
George H said on 10/Aug/06
LOL, in that picture with Kidman, look at Gibson's short arms!
Z. said on 15/May/05
Hurley is about 5'6/5'7. I actually read that in a newspaper article, saying that although Hurley is a "modest 5'6" , she has 40 ins long legs or something like that...
jimbo said on 13/Mar/05
Hurley actually said on jay leno she was 5'8, do you think she is 5'8 ? .
Jimbo said on 13/Mar/05
Olivia newton john could be 5'8 . I saw her in a photo with 5'8 liz hurley and she looked even taller than liz and they were both wearing flat shoes .
