@ MaryAnne - I'm not surprised she was a model. When I first saw redheaded Rene in 'Outbreak'', I couldn't get over how gorgeous she was - and still is! 💐

I can be of help on 3 comments below. As far as Emilio Estevez, that movie is one of the most common examples cited of tricks used to minimize the height difference between the short leading man and tall leading lady, including famously having Rene walk in a ditch. Now for Ransom, if you notice, she's in flats while both Gibson and Sinise are in thick boots or shoes. As for the Lethal Weapon 4 premiere, Mel in what I'd bet were normal dress shoes did look similar to Rene in heels that gave her an advantage, but the heels definitely looked less than 3". She's probably either 5'7.5" or 5'8", but at that same premiere, you do get the impression that a 5'10" max Chris Rock is easily taller than Rene in those 2"+ range heels: Click Here

Rob, also known for In The Line Of Fire...
Editor Rob: last film I seen with her was actually Freejack, her height beside Emilio varied a fair bit, but I think she could look near to 5ft 8.

I love her in Night Crawler.

Rob can you add Nightcrawler? Sexy as hell!

Rob, can she be 5'7 ? She was in heels in the Lethal Weapon 4 pics and was barely as tall as Gibson.
[Editor Rob: wouldn't rule it out]
J.Lee said on 23/Apr/13
6 ft 1 likely in them?
[Editor Rob: quite close to it]
J.Lee said on 21/Apr/13
Rob, I found this image of Rene in these massive shoes Click Here How tall precisely do you think she is in these?
[Editor Rob: I think 4.75 inch for those]

rene russo is more like 5, 7" tall, she does'nt look any taller than that.

In Ransom, Rene appeared only 1.5 inches shorter than Mel. Those pictures below are deceptive, and/or Mel is wearing lifts. I still think Mel is a genuine 5'9 - 5'9.5 guy.

According to, Gibson is 5 ft 9.5 in (177 cm)

I heard the same height for Rene (5 foot 8). She also said that at age 10, she had to start wearing a full body cast for scoliosis. So I'm guessing she probably would have been a little shorter had she not worn that cast.

Nope, next to 5'8" De Niro, doesn't hold up: She is wearing standard heels with this outfit (3" or so)
Ed said on 3/Jan/06
5ft8 would make sense, just saw The Thomas Crown Affair and she wears at least 3 inch heels throughout the whole thing, and Brosnan is not much taller than her. Maybe 1 1/2 pushing 2 inches. The same for Dennis Leary. I think he is 6ft2 and Brosnan is 6ft1.
