Rob have you seen her with adam sandler? Sandler have atleast half inch on her. No way they are the same height. I think like i always have said, sandler is really 178 cm and she maybe 176,5 on a good day.
Editor Rob

Saw an episode of equaliser the other day and she could look 5ft 9 to 9.5

I was 5’11 in high school and now closer to 5’8 years and weight up and down affect things and when you are younger you try to play down being taller. You choose everything to play it down. I got married in. Booty socks because my husband was shorter. But as you age and society changes you begin to not care. She is such a beautiful woman with class to her!!!

Legit guesses. I met her in person, stood right next to her. I’m 5’10 with shoes on and she was practically eye level with me with flats on.

Looks about right next to Cress Williams or John Henton in Living Single. Then again don't see footwear in the pics my guess 5'9 range strong 5'9 or weak 5'10 at absolute best

She looks 5'10 and bitchin'!
QLSW said on 27/Nov/16
No way is Queen Latifah a similar height and build to Serena Williams!! Serena is 5'9 and actually looks tiny in comparison to Latifah, Serena has a much slimmer build and Latifah actually makes Serena not look as big and muscular as everyone thinks she is. She looks petite if anything lol

Is 5 ft 9.75 her height in high heels? She looks tall but then most females are 5 ft 2 range so if she was 5 ft 6 flat fet she would still be taller than most females and in heels she would be close to 5 ft 10 range. It's hard to measure a female Celebrities height because many include heels to their height where some don't.I have found websites where the models were showned being measured while in heels.One girl measured 5 ft 10 inches and the people commenting about her where over whelmed that she was 5 ft 10 not taking note that she was being measured while wearing 8 inch heels. So i will say Queen Latifah is 5 ft 6 inches flat feet and 5 ft 9.75 with heels on.

Seems about right, a bit shorter than Common in Just Wright. Looks a similar height and appearance to Serena Williams.

She was about as tall as charlie sheen in spin city. 5 foot 9.
LAN Jiao said on 30/Oct/11
never thought she is 5'9 and over. she look always look 5'8 in film.
maybe 5-8.5 in real.
merk said on 7/Aug/11
Def 5'10 -- she towers over Zellweger in "Chicago" and is a couple taller than Zeta-Jones in the film.
Demiere said on 16/Jun/11
Queen Latifah is 5'10. I loved her in Barbershop 2.
Whopper08 said on 29/Apr/11
I think she's 5'9 at best.
sam D said on 16/Jan/11
The movies called "bringin down the house" Toni. And in case you may have forgotten, she was wearing high heels in just about every scene. And in barbershop she was not in high heels, and stood eye to eye with ice cube who is 5'8 with his 2 inch Afro. And considering its more realistic to measure the eyes, nose or or shoulders because peoples hair can be misleading, queen latifah may have been able to claim 5'6 for one movie, then claim 5'10 but flat footed be as tall as a man who struggles with 5'8. Im thinking she is a strong 5'8 if not 5'8.5
toni said on 15/Jan/11
In this one movie with steve martin she said shes 5'6. Mabey it was just for the movie tho because she looked about as tall as martin.

175cm is nearer
Jeremy said on 17/Feb/09
Maybe she was wearing heels in the movie taxi. I have not seen that movie. If she was wearing heels then she was probably 5'11 in heels and 5'9 without the heels.

In taxi she was an inch or 2 shorter than 6 foot jimmy fallon. 5 foot 9. She is tall and heavy.

But 1 or 2 inch shorter than 6 foot is 5'11 or 5'10....

In taxi she was an inch or 2 shorter than 6 foot jimmy fallon. 5 foot 9. She is tall and heavy.
glenn said on 27/Nov/08
she is usually pretty nice.she actually didnt want to take the picture.i talked her into it.i lost my original from i wasnt taking no for an seen her run from people too.
Jeremy said on 26/Nov/08
5'9 is probably correct.Great picture,Glenn.She looks really nice and happy.
Lmeister said on 26/Nov/08
She does have a built of 5f8-5ft9 woman. She isn't actually that towering in height, but she is heavy...
glenn said on 26/Nov/08
small heels i think.sometimes heels dont add as much to a woman as one thinks.i always thought she was 5-8.but ill buy 5-9.5-10 not impossible,but highly unlikely.
Jeremy said on 25/Nov/08
glenn,is she 5'8 or 5'9?How tall did she look in heels?
glenn said on 25/Nov/08
5-9 all the way.i dont understand the 5-10 claims either.she has heels on in my pic above.
Jeremy said on 24/Nov/08
I never understood why they said 5'6 in Bringing Down The House.I guess that the character that she was playing was supposed to be 5'6.I just watched Beauty Shop the other night on TV and I saw Queen Latifah at the American Music Awards.She looks 5'9 without her heels.
anonymous said on 22/Nov/08
In bringing down the house they said she was 5 foot 6. Next to 6 foot 2 steve martin, she was a few inches shorter with heels on. I think steve martin is close to 6 foot 1 next to 5 foot 11 eugene levy. Queen Latifah was about the same height as eugene levy with heels on. I would say she's between 173cm-177cm.
Jeremy said on 14/Nov/08
I've seen most of her movies and she does look 5'9 or 5'9.5 in her movies.
anonymous said on 13/Nov/08
In taxi she was shorter than jimmy fallon but she was slightly shorter than gisele bundchen. So she must be 5 foot 9 or a little taller.
Bruce said on 9/Nov/08
forget the pictures she is a solid 5'10"
glenn said on 19/May/08
she did have heels.
Anonymous said on 18/Jan/08
Yeah I just saw her at an awards show next to Zac Efron and he's like 5'7" or so right ? She was HEAPS taller than him, of course she DID wear high heals but she was still a good 6 if not 7 inches taller than him. So 5'& Efron with 1" soles + 5'8" 6" makes 6'2" she was about 6'2" in high heels. Definitely 5'9"+ then !!! Huge lady !! :D
UCLA Student said on 10/Jan/08
I saw her on Campus at UCLA today for the premier of Mad Money...The woman was so huge I thought they were premiering Cloverfield. I'm almost 6 foot, she was wearing big heels and she was about an inch taller than me. I'd put her at a solid 5'10". She looked to be well over 200lbs.
Jon Doe said on 22/Oct/07
people don't forget that wearing your hair up can make you look taller too.And with a husky build it makes your shoulders look higher.
Annie said on 23/Sep/07
In "Stranger Than Fiction" she doesn't dominate Emma Thompson like I thought she would and she looks appropriately shorter than Will Farrel (as she is wearing heels) for her to be @5'9"...Emma was depressive in the film and wore shorter heels than Latifah's business heels.
shorty said on 10/Sep/07
I've stood next to her when she is wearing sneakers and she is about 5'9.5".

Nike Shox gives one an extra 1.75 inches. I know, I got them and I measured!! :p
Kim said on 28/Jul/07
She's on the cover of the latest issue of People Style Watch. It listed her at 5'10. I also saw her (in heelS) on Conan and she was almost as tall as him. You should upgrade her height by at least a half inch.
anon. said on 2/Jul/07
i saw her at a store in toronto, she's beautiful, the nicest skin you will see and VERY tall, she was just wearing Nike Shox so maybe an extra inch and she was at least 5'10" - 5'11" i'm 5'8" and she was much taller than me. oh yeah and she's big but really in proportion so she looks good not fat or anything, and very cheerful.
dmeyer said on 25/Jun/07
to me she does look between 5'9 and 10 5'9.5 seems right

Latifah versus Glenn looks like Tom Cruise versus Glenn. Latifah and Cruise probably had the same size heels too
footballed28 said on 2/Mar/07
in that picture she is only slightly taller than Glenn...and she was wearing heels....I would give her 5'8 1/2 to be kind........and the reason she appeared taller than both Travolta and Al Gore is because she had on extremely high heels and both men are really no more than 6'0 or 6'1
glenn said on 1/Mar/07
thats strange that she apeared that tall.
talker said on 1/Mar/07
actually,at the oscars she looked even more than 6'1"because Travolta is 6' he was wearing shoes with at least an inch heels, and Latifa was taller than him.
The Rock said on 1/Mar/07
There's no way she's 5'8''. She looked insanely tall at Oscars this year. Taller than Al Gore and John Travolta. ~ 6'1'' in heels which is about 5'10'' barefoot. I doubt there are 5 inch heels that actually provide a 5 inch height boost.
talker said on 1/Mar/07
at the oscars this year,with high heels on she was same height with John Travolta.She looked huge.

holly crap!!!! i didn't think she was this tall!!!
glenn said on 28/Feb/07
she had heels on too.she might be 5-8.
Derek said on 24/Jan/07
She's around 5'8" or 9" and weighs 190.
Jordan said on 17/Nov/06
I think in "Bringing down the house" they actaully describe her at 5'7 and 175lbs which I think is wrong on both accounts. I'm pretty shore it was 5'7 but I'll have to check to make sure. Anyway I think she weighs over 175, but whatever.
dmeyer said on 1/Sep/06
in barber shop she looked taller than 173 cube even do she was barefeet
Anonymous said on 29/Aug/06
jimmy fallon is 6 ft possibly 6'1 so she's easily 5'10 because there was about two inch differential in taxi
Anonymous said on 6/Jul/06
Like Glenn said, she is 5-8.

don said on 1/Apr/06
she was wearing 2 inch heels on the daily show, a good 5 inches taller then jon stewart 5'7 so 5'10 makes sense
Glenn said on 7/Mar/06
Correct.5-8 And Sweet.
Anonymous said on 6/Mar/06
Just met her at Urth Cafe in L.A. and she was 5'8" but no taller. I must add that she was amazing and kind and full of personality. She had the most beautiful skin!
Noname said on 4/Mar/06
5'10" looks a shade off, but she could probably get away with it.
CelebHeights Editor said on 1/Oct/05
In a Chicago Sun Times article from 2000 it starts off with describing her: "At 5-feet-9 3/4 inches (and none-of-your-business pounds)". Maybe the interviewer got this height from Latifah.
J. said on 26/Aug/05
A May 1995 feature from Essence magazine:

In the article, it states : 'the Queen stands five feet nine inches tall at 190 pounds.'

They're right. 5'9" is more like it.
Drew said on 12/Jun/05
She looked 6' next to Conan O'Brien.
