I think sheโ€™s 5โ€™9

Michael Douglas was only 5'10" with lifts. He was far too old for a film like "Basic Instinct".

Stallone is a notorious lift wearer so if he was looking noticeably taller, it was probably when he wore lifts. Sly was a bit taller than Sharon in the shower scene, but not a lot. Douglas also went to the same shoemaker as Stallone for his elevator shoes and you can see Douglas wearing huge elevator boots in some scenes in Basic Instinct. As I've posted before, Douglas was also barely taller without lifts: Click Here Sharon's low heels might give her half an inch advantage, yet Michael just edges her out by 1 cm or so and as Rob also noticed, Michael is even going up on his toes a bit.

Neither Stallone nor Douglas would have been more than 1 inch taller than Stone standing barefoot with equal posture. I think she's at least 5'8" and maintained her height at least into her 50's as she was taller than 5'7.75" Mariska Hargitay.

Not positive she is quite this tall. Really Stallone and Douglas were noticeably taller. Probably closer to 5'7.5.
Pierric said on 6/Sep/17
Rob, how much do you estimate her weight in "Basin instinct" ?
Editor Rob: 135-139 pounds
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Aug/17
@James: There were countless problems with The Specialist as a film. I'm a big Stallone fan, but it really wasn't a very good movie. Rod Steiger's Cuban accent may have been the worst I've heard. The acting was wooden as well except for James Woods. Eric Roberts wore really big Cuban heels, though. Probably not that much smaller than Sharon's heels: Click Here Those look pretty close to a pair of Cuban heel boots I have with 2.75" heels. I think Roberts must have been somewhere from 5'8.5" to 5'9" and Stone from 5'8" to 5'8.5".
Rising - 174 cm said on 13/Aug/17
Of course, I wouldn't have minded finding out if she was 5'8.5" or 5'9" out of bed.

James said on 9/Jan/17
Douglas was probably wearing lifts.

Actually, while you say this way too often, it's correct in this case: Click Here Without those boots, Douglas was barely taller than her at the Cannes premiere that year.
James said on 13/Aug/17
5'8" looks right in "The Specialist". Unfortunately Stone was too old for her character, it didn't make sense that she was the same age as Eric Roberts.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Aug/17
@Arch: Agreed. In Basic Instinct, Total Recall and the Specialist, Sharon in the early/mid 90s would personally be in my top 5. She also looked better than she has in years, imo at Cannes 2013. I thought they were older pictures at first glance. As for height, she seemed a legit 5'8" to me into at least her 50s so I'd say at least 5'8.5" morning. In fact, I wouldn't completely rule it out period, but a lot of her leading men during her heyday were in that 174-175 cm range(e.g., Michael Douglas, Sly Stallone, Eric Roberts, Robert De Niro) and I think she was an inch tops shorter than all. Of course, it depends on if you think they were more 5'9" or 5'8.5".

I'm just coming to the end of the film 'The Specialist' and yes, I can see Sharon looking a good, strong 5ft8 in this film, working next to Sylvester Stallone - quite brilliantly, I might add, Eric Roberts and James Woods. She can look all of them straight in the face, but more importantly, and of enormous credit to her acting skills, we see her playing a role in which she looks truly vulnurable.
Not surprising then that all three guys are competing to be the one who looks after her - and wins her heart!
Last time I voted, back in January, I thought that Sharon was 5ft7, but now with one of her greatest performances fresh in my mind, I review that to 5ft8. Sharon has gone shoeless quite a bit in this film, adding a convincing amount of weight to the argument of the extra inch!
Lovely performance from an equally lovely actress - and to think, my boyfriend didn't used to think I liked her, possibly because his other girlfriends didn't!
Well, NOT this one! This one rates her! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Arch Stanton said on 3/Aug/17
5'8.5 might have been a morning measurement. Breathtakingly beautiful in the 90s and still hot now.
Intevel said on 27/Jul/17
Rob, did you ever list Sharon at 5 ft 9?
Editor Rob: I can't remember but she has been on current mark for a long time
RisingForce said on 6/Jun/17
It can be helpful when you forget your elevators, at least that's one of the few photos that shows their feet. Maybe it should be called the Michael Douglas trick considering this was back in 1992. It's funny, people doubted Sharon was 5'8" because of how she looked with Michael, but didn't bother to look at their shoes or check the premiere photos. Seeing the series of photos that day, it's apparent there wasn't much of a height difference between the 2.
RisingForce said on 5/Jun/17
Rob, about what range would you say Sharon's heels are here? Click Here They really don't look like much as far as I can tell.
Editor Rob: they might be 1.5-1.6 range, Douglas pulling the old Jeremy Piven trick there...
RisingForce said on 30/Apr/17
Here's an example of Sharon with 172 cm Mariska Hargitay: Click Here Sharon was 51-52 during that time and usually looked taller. In that case, she looks taller than just a flat 5'8" to me if they have roughly the same heel height. More 5'8.25"-5'8.5". 172 cm has looked possible at times for Sharon, but I think it's a case of minimizing the height between her and the leading men in their movies. No less than 5'8", possibly the height she claims.
RisingForce said on 20/Mar/17
She's tricky. If Timberlake is 6'0.5" in shoes and Andy Garcia is 5'10" in shoes then Sharon looked to be standing near 6 feet in heels at age 50! Click Here She also edged out 5'7.75" Mariska Hargitay at age 51-52. Sly was clearly taller than her in the shower scene of the Specialist and on the golf course, though and Michael Douglas was also definitely taller than her and I think Sly was 5'8.75" or a weak 5'9" and Douglas was a more solid 5'9". But considering the other comparisons, she could very well have been 5'8.5" peak. Ridiculously hot from about 1990-1994
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/17
Rob, how likely is her claim?
James said on 3/Feb/17
"Basic Instinct" was such a stupid film though, they've used DNA in criminal investigations since 1984.
height lover said on 17/Jan/17
how can people lie too much about height, sharon stone is way taller than 5'7, she's max 5'9.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jan/17
That's a pleasant surprise! Sharon has loads of confidence and it's easy to see why! It isn't just down to her height (I had read she was 5ft7 somewhere!), it is the whole package!
Sharon strikes me as the sort of person who would be confident whatever her height. I loved her as the erring wife of Robert de Nero in 'Casino' and I can't imagine anyone else playing her 'Basic Instinct' part of Catherine Trammel as well as she did! She MADE that film! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿšฟ
James said on 9/Jan/17
Douglas was probably wearing lifts.
Pierric said on 1/Jan/17
Sorry but if Michael Douglas was a "strong" 5'9" in Basic Instinct, no way she was 5'8" in this movie...She looks 2 good inches smaller than him. looks at the scene they're walking on the beach ! I estimate her at around 169 cms.. It's not your opinion Rob ? Frankly !
Rojina said on 21/Nov/16
She was probably 5"9 whilst younger. Can easily seem so now
James said on 18/Sep/16
Yeah, the writer of "Basic Instinct" said not mentioning the DNA was a major plot hole in his script.
James B said on 26/Apr/16
5'8 seems ok.

Overall I don't find her all that attractive but in total recall she looked very sexy indeed.
Tom said on 20/Jan/16
5'8" peak height. I've no idea why "Basic Instinct" was successful when the police would have used DNA to solve the case.
Adolfus said on 20/Oct/15
Yes, Jesse, Sharon Stone is taller than Sylvester Stallone, but he was never anywhere near 5'9". 5'7" to 5'7&1/2" most is Sly Stallone's peak height.
Fray said on 6/Aug/15
She's honest about her height. 5'8.5" at peak, 5'8" now. She modeled in Paris for a while before coming back to the US to act.
Jesse Stone said on 11/Jul/15
She is a little taller than Sylvester Stallone in The Specialist shower scene. So her claim sounds pretty believalbe. Showes again...sly never any taller than a weak 5'9 - probably even a fraction smaller and now around 5'8.
Julian said on 27/Jun/15
I've read somewhere that she is 171cm.

Smartazz80 says on 21/Mar/14
I saw her in Bologna, Italy (2005/2006) and we had the same height. Im 1,80 and she dressed heels, so I guess she is not taller than 168/170. In the specialist Stallone appears (in the shower scene) a little taller. So in my opinion Stallone is 172/173, but he seems shorter cause his low and large shoulders!

if you are 180 cms barefeet then it means that you're 182 cms with a normal/common shoes, and for a woman tall 173 cms is reasonable to be 180-182 cms with heels on...
IMO 173 cms for her is reasonable...she always looked to me a tall person...
MaryAnne said on 21/Apr/15
5 ft 7 rob?
[Editor Rob: she may be at an age where losing half inch has happened, but always 5ft 7, I can't believe it.]

I believe her claim , she was in normal shoes and was not more than about 4.5 less than Arnold.
Jax said on 20/Aug/13
172cm peak, 171cm nowadays seems right for her
Emily said on 4/Aug/13
How long is her head judging from this photo?Click Here
I just noticed how much bigger it is than Seyfried's. Of course she's like 5 inches taller than Amanda. I'm a 5'11.5 tall girl and my head is about 9.25 inches long. Just wanna make sure my head is not too long/big!
Dmeyer said on 3/Feb/13
172-173cm seems Right for her
Dmeyer said on 3/Feb/13
5'7.5 is a possible as well as 5'8 when around average men Like sly she dosnt force posture , also ร‰ric Robert whore 2.25 boots so was 5'11.5 shoes and looked a hair taller than her in medium heels 2.75 type , she is barely shorter than sly and bits sly in heels , at worst 5'7.5
Carl said on 2/Aug/12
In the specialist, there is a naked scene in the shower with Sylvester Stallone and she's taller than him so that means Sly is around 5'7 lol.
ropo said on 11/Feb/12
in the specialist she wear heels,I thing that 170cm is right
SIlent d said on 24/Jan/12
5 foot 7 is right.
Edina said on 5/Jan/12
Yeah,but look at the movie "The Specialist"with Sylvester S.,she looks as tall as him or maybe just a little taller,like 175 cm.
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 17/Aug/11
Looks like Sharon has some pro wrestling ancestors, because in most her films , Sliver to name it, she doesn't look 5'8.5" at all. She doesn't look like a tall woman, and 174cm for a woman is tall. Almost everyone is taller than her in her films, including many girls and almost all the men even when she is wearing heels so it's more than suspicious. 5'6.5" tops
Bon_ said on 9/Aug/11
In Sliver she looked 5'5 max, no doubt about it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/11
Looks 172-173cm

i think it is wrong, because she is my country now and she does't look so tall
Legend said on 2/Apr/11
I thought she was 5'6.5?
dmeyer said on 25/Sep/07
there is a pic in getty images were both sharon and sly wear very low heeled footwear with no possibility of lifts and sly looks a lidl over 1 in taller so 5'9.5 i am suporting the 5'10 glenn claims
dmeyer said on 14/Aug/07
most women dont lie about height 5'8.5 peak 5'8 now
dmeyer said on 1/Jul/07
i think she was solid 5'8.5 but she is smaller now
timber said on 1/Jul/07
As Sharon is 48, and appears to be in great physical shape, I doubt she has lost height. I think she has always been 5'7ish, and Editor Rob's original listing of 5'7.75 is closer to the mark.

[Editor Rob: the 172cm was too low, 174cm is very possible]
Cpt. Crunch said on 5/Jun/07
the Christian Slater page has photos of her looking shorter than 5-8 Slater with shoes visible
kiefer said on 27/May/07
She is 5ft 8.5 barefeet. I met her once a few years back and she towered me as i am 5ft 6.
Sam said on 22/May/07
I met her and asked her height! She said '' She was 5 8,5 ''
dmeyer said on 27/Apr/07
she might have been 5'9 or 8.5 at 20s and now 5'8 to say that sly is 5'10.5 is insane he can look 5'11 i doubt more but if he realy was 5'10.5 to 5'11 nobody will dsecribe him as short
Mace said on 22/Apr/07
she is that height,probably around 175 in younger days,i don't know when women start shrinking...
Alireza said on 20/Apr/07
she doesnt look 5-8,she looks 5-7 MAX.:-?is there anyone who had met her?
Donald Simpson said on 6/Feb/07
By the way in the Quick And The Dead, the casket maker was Woody Strode. John Ford's Sgt. Rutledge. Strode as 6-4 at his peak. I saw Sharon Stone leaving N.B.C. studios at 30 Rockerfeller Plaza in N.Y.C.. She had just taped a Martha Stewart Show. She was wearing a pair of low heeled boots. She appeared with the boots to be about 5-8. Still a whole lot of woman. She was shorter than me by an inch and a half.
Glenn said on 6/Feb/07
Your right kevin.Sly isnt 5-11.he is 5-10.5.
kevin t said on 6/Feb/07
Actually she appeared about 3 inches shorter than Stallone in his shower scene, and there is no way in the world Sly is 5' 11" barefoot.

She looks 5'6" - 5' 7" to me.
thomi said on 25/Jan/07
Not even the translators in the movies can come to a decision about stone's dimensions. In the englisch version of "the quick and the dead", the casket-maker says to Ellen (Stone) when she first appers in the town: "5.8, am i right? I'm always right". In the german version, he says: "1.70, hab ich recht? Ich hab immer recht" :)) I think that stone is just a little bit over 1.70, maximum 1.72 - compare her to Eric roberts or sly in "the specialist". She lies to us about her height as she lied to us about her MENSA-Membership.
Heightfan said on 28/Dec/06
I agree anonymous, I have seen her next to many tall women and her 5'8" def holds up. I of course mean the last anonymous, not the anonymous from May 4. Come on people you can think of a unique name.
anonymous said on 27/Dec/06
what ridic comments below-5'5, even 5'3??? get a life, haters. this goddess of a woman is no less than 5'7.5-minimum. she was a model for god's sakes! and if you watch casino she's almost as tall as robert deniro who is a leit 5'10-even when she's barefoot. don't hate-appreciate
Brad said on 24/Aug/06
Frank2, turn off the Babs CD and tell us 5' 6" cause you are her height.
Viper652 said on 15/Aug/06
She's not below 5-7.
tenaciousC said on 14/Aug/06
shes tall, close to slys height in 'specialist' naked in shower.. slys at least 5-8.. shes 5-7 min
Brad said on 14/Aug/06
5' 8 and one half inch as she says in her own words.
Natalie said on 3/Aug/06
I am not sure if Sharon Stone is 173 cm. I mean she looks shorter than 173 cm. I believe she is 5'5" because I am 173 cm and I look taller than her.
Anonymous said on 4/May/06
Sharon Stone is closer to 5'3". SHe's tiny, but deceptively tall looking because of her frame. Heels can do wonders. I'm about 5'5" and a 1/2 and people always think i'm close to 5'11" or 6'0" when I wear heels (I' don't have any 6-inch heels).
rick said on 3/May/06
Yes, it's true in Diabolique she looks 6/7 cms taller than Isabelle Adjani, who is suposed to be 163 or 164. Sharon is meabe around 170.
Frank2 said on 11/Apr/06
Sharon is definitely not 5'8". Ellen is about 5'6".
tybor said on 8/Apr/06
She was just on Martha Stewart this past week and she was at least the same height if not a half inch taller.
Anonymous said on 30/Mar/06
she always wears very high heels on movies so she appears to be as tall as the 5'10" men do.But when she gets out her shoes she isn't too tall. she is more like 5'7",i guess.
Kats said on 24/Mar/06
Why is just about everyone so dang sure Ellen is at least 5'7? There's been proof she's closer to 5'5... 5'6 at the monst. I think Ellen is more like 5'5 1/2, and Sharon is 5'6 1/2. She really doesn't look 5'8. Let's not forget, 5'6-5'6 1/2 is technically above average for a female! She's definitely not short. But 5'8? Please.
jimbo said on 24/Mar/06
i think she is 5'8 she looks about an inch shorter than carrie ann moss .
Anonymous said on 27/Feb/06
She is at least 1,5 inches shorter than sylvester stallone in specialist. If syl. is 5'9 then she is 5'7.5, I think.
mcfan said on 14/Sep/05
The height here for Stone at 5'7.75 is clearly wrong. Sharon STone is easily taller than Ellen Degeneres in "If These Walls Could Talk 2" by an inch. I would put her true height at 5'8.5 because I think Ellen is only 5'7.5.

[Editor Rob: I'm starting to think Stone is a legit 5ft 8er...ellen, really is no shorter than 5ft 7.5]
Lesley said on 12/Jul/05
I saw her in Prague. She is barely 5 feet tall and maybe 100 lbs because she is tiny but toned. The web says she is 5'7. More Hollywood lies. I was standing next to her with her 4 body guards. I am 5'4 and she was much shorter than me. Her guards and entourage were able to totally hide her with their normal heights as myself and others tried to take her picture. I wondered why they were so determined not to have her picture taken, she lies about her height and didn't want it exposed.
CelebHeights Editor said on 9/Feb/05
Thanks to Jeannine, Sharon said in Feb 2005 Allure magazine: "I'm 5ft 8.5. But sometimes, when I'm feeling really big, I say I'm 5ft 9.". To me, she might have lost a cm, or this was her height back in her 20's.
