How tall is Sigourney Weaver

Sigourney Weaver's Height

5ft 10 ½ (179.1 cm)

Peak height was 5ft 11 (180.3 cm)
American actress best known for starring in films such as Aliens, Ghostbusters, Working Girl, Galaxy Quest and Gorillas in the Mist. In a 1989 edition of The Dallas Morning News, she commented on her stature, saying: "But I am 5 foot 11 inches tall", and also "I've lost a lot of roles because of my height, I'm 6ft 3 in heels."
This photo is from the London Film Con, I had 1 inch sneakers, she had This heel, so has an advantage of nearly 1.5 inches.

How tall is Sigourney Weaver
5ft 8 Rob and Sigourney
I was up for movies with major stars and when I'd walk in, [the actors] would sit down. It depends on the guy. People used to have a more idealized sense of what a couple should be - the man taller, the woman smaller. I am about 5 feet 11. It's never been a problem in any of the jobs I've done. I did a movie...with Mel Gibson, and I'm sure I'm a couple of inches taller than Mel, but he's so secure it was never an issue.
-- Jan, 2000
[Sigourney] reached her full height - 5 feet 10 ½ inches - early, at the age of 13. Which made her feel awkward. "My mother saved the day. She kept telling me it was marvelous to be so stately. If she hadn't said that, I might have grown even more self-conscious about my height."

I am just over 6'0" (measured 2 years ago by my doctor). I have stood next to Sigourney at the same event. I had flats with about an inch of sole. She had heels. I was at least 2" taller. I was really surprised. I would say she's currently 5'9". She is stunning and so graceful and lovely.

A solid 5'10 today. 5'10 1/8

@ Johno

I agree!

I dont care how tall she is, she is very attractive, especially in Aliens.
Bobby said on 8/May/18
She was on The Defenders (A superhero team comprising of Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones within the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and she towered over... what's her name, she portrayed Elektra, Daredevil's love interest on the Netflix show. She was wearing heels too, so was clearly over 6ft with them on. I may have to finally take in the movie Alien (1979) to see what her proportions were like on there to gauge her peak height, but she did strike as being 5'11 on The Defenders, so I'll give her something like 5'10.75, and I am going to say tentatively that she was 5'11.5 peak height.

I guess Sigourney was 5ft11 and a bit in her youth and now just a quarter inch over 5ft10
Tall Sam said on 6/Mar/18
I have a hard time seeing an inch difference peak between her and Allison Janey and definitely Geena Davis, I think Janey might be only a cm over these other towering ladies.
Jann said on 22/Dec/17
Full 5'11"

181 in youth without a doubt.

181cm in peak

178/179 cm nowadays.
Slim 6' said on 22/Oct/17
I wouldent hesitate to give a 181 upgrade for peak.
Slim 6' said on 6/Oct/17
Definitely 5'11.25" - 5'11.5". (181) in youth.
Rising - 174 cm said on 30/Sep/17
The other quote at the bottom is probably what I was thinking of when I said I remember Sigourney claiming 5'10.5". It's strange because I don't see how she could be under 5'11", but the half seems odd. Could she have been 5'11.5" and taking off an inch?
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Sep/17
The additional quote at the bottom is helpful as now she says 2" taller than Mel, which supports her claim of her being 5'11" and Mel being 5'9". The reason I mention it is she seemed to be saying she was 3" taller once, but didn't finish her sentence and Mel implied she was 3" taller. I'm fine with 5'11" for Sigourney and 5'9" for Mel then, but considering he looked to have a minimum 2" footwear advantage and still struggled to look as tall, I do believe she could be rounding down slightly.

184cm in Alien
Slim said on 22/Sep/17
Thanks Johan, I try to be as unbiased as possible.
Johan said on 21/Sep/17
Don't know why people keep saying 5'11" or close to it. She looks 5'11.5" next to Rob with an estimation of 1.3-1.5 inches MORE footwear. So just from the pic you would guess 5'10" to maybe 5'10.25". Ofc meeting someone in person and a pic are different things and if Rob thought 5'10.5" I am inclined to believe him but we are talking fractions here.

I agree with Slim below, I do see her at a solid 5'11" at peak more a 181 ranger.
Richardspain said on 19/Sep/17
We must understand she is nearly seventy years old for this reason she has lost any inch.But how height she has lost??? Is difficult know it!

But in my opinion she was a strong 181/182 cm younger and her agent, articles 80's said she was 6 foot.

Nowadays looks 179 cm. Still taller to be a woman.

Sigourner weaver's height :

Young 181/182cm

Nowadays 179cm
Slim said on 19/Sep/17
Rob, can we please give 181 for peak?
Guest66 said on 14/Sep/17
A bit over 5'10 barefoot today, but how much she has lost since ? Maybe like 2cm, so I'm pretty convinced she wasn't over 5'11 back in the days.
Slim said on 12/Sep/17
5'10.75" today
5'11.5" glory days.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Sep/17
I'm unaware of Gwyneth claiming a height, much less 5'11" and Taylor is 5'9" at best, but never looks anywhere near as tall as Sigourney does even today. Make sure all the comparisons of Sigourney and men are ones where you see their feet because it's common practice to ensure the leading man is as tall as his leading lady. A weak 5'9" Sly Stallone was made to look as tall as his 6'0" wife and co-star Brigitte Nielsen in Cobra. Sigourney could have been a flat 5'11", but as I showed, 5'9" Mel Gibson in thick heeled elevator boots struggled to look as tall as Sigourney in ballet slipper type flats so that's a bare minimum 2" footwear advantage for Mel, probably a fraction more. Rob even has Mel 5'9.5" and while I don't believe that, I think an even 5'9" is fair for him suggesting 5'11" is the minimum for a young Sigourney rather than max. Mel himself even inflated Sigourney's height to 6'1" to fit his own 5'10" claim suggesting he thought she was 3" taller than himself. She still clears 5'10" in her late 60s.
KH said on 7/Sep/17
She was never taller then 5'11. I have watched Ghostbusters (the entire male cast noticeably taller), Working Girl (Harrison Ford noticeably taller), and Galaxy Quest (slightly taller then Tim Allen) many times. Thats still very tall for a woman that is roughly the equivalent of a 6'4 range man. Most women that claim to be 5'11 are really ike 5'9 range see the Taylor Swifts and Gwyneth Paltrow's of the world.
Johno said on 3/Sep/17
If we to ignore the footwear advantage and assummed her forehead is a large 4.5-inches, she would have 3-inches on Rob.

Now deduce 1.3-1.5-inches for footwear and reduce her eyeline to 4-4.25-inches and you will see that her height on Rob be no more than 1.5-inches, making her 5'9.5 at her lowest in that picture.

She is most likely a weak-5'10.
Anonymous said on 29/Aug/17
In Ghostbusters with her heels/lifts and with huge hair she was still a bit shorter than Bill Murray (187 cm).

To me she looked in this movie no more than a strong 180cm barefoot.
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Aug/17
182 cm is probably pushing it, but 181 cm is not only possible, but likely if Mel Gibson was 5'9" as Sigourney said. Mel in elevator boots still wasn't taller than Sigourney in flats as you see some close ups a wider shot and a few pics of their shoes: Click Here

Sigourney had about the thinnest type of flats, maybe 1/4" while Mel's elevator boots - both the black and brown pairs - had a good sized heel even on the outside and probably gave 2.5"-2.7". This certainly suggests more than a 2" difference. Between 181-182 for Sigourney or 5'11.5" is even possible. You notice, she's more hesitant to say her height saying she "guesses" she's 5'11", but says in a matter of fact way that Mel is 5'9". This suggests she's either rounding down or still not completely comfortable with her height. Mel on the other hand suggests a 3" difference by upgrading Sigourney to 6'1" to fit his 5'10" claim. He said himself that in what he called "3-inch lifts", it still didn't work. That seems to be synonymous with 3-inch elevators including both the external heel and internal lift and of course, you don't get a full 3". But the footwear difference should be at least 2", probably a little more and the footwear difference should be about the height difference.
RichardSpain said on 23/Jun/17
Yes I believe she is a strong 179cm nowadays. When she was young 181/182 cm is possible. Similar some partners actors range 180-183cm that worked with them .
RisingForce said on 20/Jun/17
Thank you, Shredder. Rob has many well above the average too, that's why it's an average, some are above it and some below. It's simple math that if you added at least the average to EVERYONE and then kept the exceptions like Hulk Hogan, Dolph Lundgren, Danny Glover etc. well over the average then the average would be significantly higher than it is. Danimal is the first to point out, and imho, exaggerate some extreme height losses, but I've never seen him estimate someone as having lost less than average. This site would be widly inaccurate if Rob just subtracted an average from everyone without even looking to see if they look around that height. Plus, it was ONE survey with only 2000 people. There's not one scientific field where something would be considered conclusive with just a single survey and a relatively tiny sample size. The survey was useful, but it's just a reference, not a rule.

Rob knows what he's doing.
Shredder said on 19/Jun/17
Danimal , not everybody loses the same , lets face it your Average 50 yr old man doesn't look fit , they are most likely 30 lbs overweight , have a crappy job , smoke , drink and barely sleep.
Danimal said on 18/Jun/17
Rob, I don't get it? The average 70 year old woman will have lost 2" in height from their peak height. Sigourney Weaver is almost 70 years old and you only have her at a .5" height loss? Why don't you go by the average rule? It seems like almost every celebrity on your site is exempt from the average height loss rule for their respective ages?
Editor Rob: at worse she might be 5ft 10 flat now. I don't think she looks to have lost as much as some women.

Keeping fit, active and taking supplements can certainly help towards reducing height loss.
RisingForce said on 8/Jun/17
Btw, Arch, I've suspected Melanie Griffith could be a flat 5'8".
RisingForce said on 8/Jun/17
Didn't she try claiming 5'10.5" even back in the 80s or 90s? Probably downplaying a bit because of all the fuzz about her height. Funny she also claimed 6' though. I agree with the peak and current listing anyway.

Rob when you make photos with actors take the whole body including the shoes. IMHO she is 175cm without shoes.

I forgot to mention the shoe advantage she has over Rob. Minus that, I see a three inch difference.
Sean73 said on 16/Mar/17
If there is a tell tale example of what five foot ten and a half looks like it is this picture of Rob and Sigourney. I see exactly 3" difference between the two of them. Great job Rob.
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Feb/17
I'm sure Sigourney was a full 6ft at one time! She's still very tall today and looks fantastic!
I love her style of film, from the exciting, star-studded 'Alien' films to the sad and thoroughly moving true story she portrayed in 'Gorillas in the Mist'.
6ft peak, 5ft11.25 now.

No,it's not. 5'11 is exactly 180.3 cm, so Rob's correct
Leonardo 173cm said on 3/Aug/16
5'11.25 is a better listing because in your video you say she is 180-181cm, so 180.5cm is more 181cm.
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jul/16
Odd but she honestly looks about 6 ft in Working Girl if Melanie Griffiths is 5'8.5, though footwear advantage is possible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/16
181cm peak
The Man said on 23/Jul/16
Still a decent 5'11" IMO. Might have been a fraction taller in her peak days.
Maximus said on 20/Jul/16
I think she is 5'11" not 5'10" or below.......some guys cant accept that she is taller than them.....heck im 5'10-1/4" and don't have a problem with it at all....im right at 6' with shoes and have never and I mean never been called short....so no big deal.
Johan said on 20/Jul/16
I don't think so Aza. She would be at most Rob's listing fully straight. She looks 181-182cm tops with a small heel next to Rob. Take away that advantage and well she isn't much over 5ft 10. I believe her 5ft 11 claim as she is older and women shrink far quicker.
Aza said on 19/Jul/16
0.5 inch loss from peak is due to posture or just old age shrinkage.... I mean if she was to stand at her most erect would she still be 71 inches?
Johnson said on 18/Jul/16
guys, remember she is having an advantage of 1.3-1.5 inches with Rob so, she is not more tan 5'10 discounting the advantage
mrtguy said on 18/Jul/16
Looks more closer to 5'10'' even with shoes

I'd say 175-176 without heels n the big hair, also Rob is tilting a bit. It's her proportions giving off the taller look illusion.
Johno said on 13/Jul/16
I believe £100 for an A-lister; especially one that has a cult following in the Sci-fi scene, is well worth it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jul/16
Rob, is 181-182cm peak possible?
James B said on 12/Jul/16
Weaver, Diana, Jamie Lee curtis and candy Crawford all share those quite masculine features that tall women seem to have.

I am on the short side for a man so I am quite attracted to tall women and It's like tall men gravitate to short women .
Opposites attract I guess.
Shredder said on 12/Jul/16
Rob , you think they both Look 40? To me they look pretty young for being in their 40's!
Editor Rob: yeah both near to 40, although I wouldn't have guessed over 40
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jul/16
Rob, how likely is 182cm peak?
Editor Rob: I'm not sure she was as tall as that, although a strong 5ft 11 range
Johan said on 11/Jul/16
I would have guessed 181 cm discounting the footwear. I suppose it depends how thick those heels are but she does look solid 181 er there so around 5'11.5" and then 1.5 inches off leave us at 5ft 10 maybe a little more if the heel isn't giving 1.5 in advantage.

Strong 5 ft 10 heading for 70 yrs so yes I agree with Danimal she was for sure a solid 5ft 11 in her youth.
J.Lee said on 11/Jul/16
Rob if she is 5 ft 10.5 in the day when you met her but possibly goes a little lower at night, is she still 5 ft 10.5?
Editor Rob: it is possible she could go a little less.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jul/16
Crikey, if she's getting £100 per photo in one day how much is she making??? £100 seems very steep to me.!
Editor Rob: About 1700 photos over the weekend. Plus a lot of autographs.

It is quite steep (although she was more expensive at the American event the previous year, $200 for a photo, 185 an auto ). The bigger the name the greater they'll charge for their time.
littlesue said on 11/Jul/16
100 quid for a pic!! does all the money go to her? you would think she had made a few bob in her life not to rely on things like this??
Editor Rob:
I don't know, but actors might either get a percentage of photos/autographs sold, or they have a set fee, so the organiser has to price autos/photos so that they can afford not only the guests fee + 1st class flights, hotels + helper/agent.

A small percentage might donate to charity their fees...

Take the shoe advantage away and the difference is more 2.25-inches, so i can average her at 5'10.5 as Rob has listed her with a 5'10-5'10.25 low; she is a strong 5'10 women basically and due to women having relatively thinner bones, women can often give a taller appearance. She gives off 5'11 but is actually more rather 5'10-range.

5'10.5 average height throughout the day

She's almost 70 years old and the average 70 year old woman will have lost 2" in height. She was every bit a full 5'11" in your younger years.
Editor Rob: for age 65 (in this photo) she did look in very good shape and probably I'd have guessed her as between 55-60 range.

I don't doubt that she was in great shape (she looks it), but the facts are she was 65 years old in that pic and that's a short 5 years away from an average height loss of 2" for a woman, so I'm quite certain if a 1979 version of her from Alien stood next to you, she'd stretch out even taller than a 2015 version did.

Well, if her hair really is as big as 3 cm, she definitely doesn't look more than 5'10 flat here...
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 9/Jul/16
She has aged really well, as she was born before 1950. Somewhere between 5'10" - 5'10.5" range today I'd guess, leaning towards the upper half of the range possibly.
miko said on 9/Jul/16
She is 66 so I suppose its not impossible she's lost close to a full inch.
Johno said on 9/Jul/16
Judging by how most Celebheight users estimated her at; i to wouldn't have had much problem given her 5'11 neither before this picture and some even insisted 5'11.5 and 6'0. For me, most people tend to over estimate heights then underestimate them especially for bigger icons. Do the likes of Pitt and Dicaprio really give off a higher stature then Weaver? Well judging by the listings and comments, their heights are certainly listed higher and i believe these opinions are somewhat out.

Hard to say how much her hair gives but i'd say she looks 182 range AT MOST, which means she could be somewhere between 5'10 and 5'10.5...
5'10.5 is probably a bit too optimistic, just looking at the photo...
Aaron Zamora said on 9/Jul/16
Is 5'10 possible?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have said 5ft 10 flat, but near 179 barefeet (I would have said her hairstyle was about 3cm worth)...but I know a few people who met her the following day when she wore a flat shoe and I heard a few say they were surprised she wasn't as tall as they thought.
Mark said on 9/Jul/16
She has aged remarkably well. Rob how would you describe her overall posture?
Editor Rob: I think I got her standing pretty well, generally I think she looked to have good posture walking about
jtm said on 9/Jul/16
I'm really surprised rob got a picture with her. maybe one day he will get a picture with Damon and Pitt and their real height will be revealed.
Editor Rob: this is the most expensive photo I ever paid for, about £100...

as an Aliens fan though I wasn't going to miss getting this one!
dicksock said on 9/Jul/16
Take away the hair, and she's about 3" taller than Rob. She may look 5'11" with her 1.5" footwear advantage, but she is probably no more than 5.9.5" barefoot. She might be 6'3" in heels if you measured to the top of her hair.
Peter 179cm said on 9/Jul/16
Looks over 5'11 but below 6'0 with footwear advantage next to Rob-maybe about 182cm,so around 178-179cm flat these days.

Looks easily 6'0 with the heels , Close to 5'11 still.

I recall a parody interview in Esquire in the seventies, and the interviewer asks Weaver, "How tall are you?" And she says, "Five foot ten." And the interviewer says, "What?" And she says," I'm six foot four. Are you happy now?"
John said on 16/Jan/16
@Greg
Galaxy Quest was made when Rickman had alrealy lost an inch or so to his height, so he was 6'0" by then. So Weaver was 5'11" in Galaxy Quest, and unlike Rickman, I believe she hasn't dropped any height as of yet.
Greg said on 14/Jan/16
Looking at Galaxy Quest last night, 6'1" Alan Rickman (RIP, great actor) had about an inch or so on her. Saw her in person 15 years or so ago - she is (or at least was) 6ft, no less.
Big C said on 18/Oct/15
Rob do you think weaver looked 6ft at very young age? If not then maybe close to it? 5ft 11.75? She was a solid very tall woman and still is now I'd say, had to be a strong 5ft 11 in the first alien film.
[Editor Rob: she has claimed six foot once at least!]

Anybody who is shorter than six foot three barefoot is six-three in heels. You just have to wear the right size heels. I'm 300 pounds when I'm holding a barbell.

I just find her comment about losing roles very strange. In the 80's and 90's you had alot of actors who were over 6 foot, no need to wear massive heels all the time. Nowadays i would understand as alot of the big blockbuster actors are under 5'10 even.

Someone like a 6'3 Gwendoline Christie is another story.
Chase Witherspoon said on 3/Aug/15
Ms Weaver seems like my older sister who'd refer to herself as 5'12" before she'd ever confess to being 6'0".... Nevertheless Ms Weaver always appears quite genuine maybe legitimately rounding down from 181cm perhaps..

Yeah, she's aged very well IMO, she can look a pretty strong 5'11". Watching Alien as a young teen, I found that climatic confrontation in the panties and tight shirt was uh, very watchable.

In Alien 4 she was at least an inch shorter than 6ft Ron Perlman,she wasn't taller than 5'11.

Greg said on 26/Aug/11
Bumped into her in San Diego about ten years back; standing right next to her, she was noticeably taller than me at that time (I'm 5ft 10) wearing flats. I'm wondering if it's possible she understates her height - I got the impression that she was at in the least 6ft range? She's wafer thin and that probably adds to the impression of height.

I always saw her listed at 6' which I always thought too high yet she looked it compared to Yaphet. I agree with some of the comments below I can see how a lot of guys would feel very intimidated by her even taller guys and women too, She is a very powerfully built woman and I bet she could kick the arses of a lot of guys. A female action hero, Michelle Yeoh would kill virtually any guy too.
Dennis M. said on 17/Mar/09
I saw her in ghostbusters years ago and didn't realize she was so tall. Maybe the ghostbusters are all tall guys. I had the impression she was only average height in that movie, like 5-6 or 5-7. I don't think her height was an issue.Wasn't until Aliens (part 2) came out that they started describing her as tall. I seen 5'11 women and they look pretty tall but on the screen it isn't so noticable. I just saw Siqourney in galaxy quest and again she gave the illusion of being pretty averaged size. Maybe 5'11 isn't all that tall? It doesn't seem to be a big issue for the characters she plays. She played a few powerful larger than life characters; aliens, working girls, but she also has convincingly been in other movies that did not call for a tall person and pulled it off; heartbreakers,Galaxy Quest. So do the people of hollywood, are they able to mask someones height easily?
runt said on 5/Mar/09
In "Baby Mama" with Tina Fey, she and Fey were both in heels and Weaver didn't look more than 6" taller. She looked 5-10.5 if tina Fey is 5-4.5 unless Fey had a higher heel.

I'm not going to even bother anymore. You state your opinions as if they are facts, when they are simply that-- opinions. You disagree with most of Rob's listings for women, especially tall women and that's fine. I don't, as I agree with both Sigourney's listed height as well as Nicole Kidman's. End of discussion.
miser said on 10/Nov/08
"Yes, a woman at 180 cm may appear taller than a man who is also 180 cm."

Women appear taller than men who are the same height in 99% of the cases(unless there's really grooss confounding factors, ie: one is really fat, the other really skinny, etc.)

"But that being said, most celebs here period are marked lower than what they are "officially" listed at. Tall women included-- Gweneth Paltrow (usually marked at 5'10"+), Charlize Theron (5'11"), etc. Why? Because there's strong evidence suggesting that they are not that tall."

Gwyneth Paltrow at 5'10+ is kind of crazy isn't it? As for Charlize what evidence is that? If i had to cite 2 women on this site who actually look about 1.80m I would say Charlize and Geena. Still I'm not sure at all that geena is a full 6'.

"Again, I never said that women don't care about height. Just that very tall women, especially those hovering over the 6' mark or over, are typically not going to be adding inches to their height."

Yeah those hovering over the 6' mark or over will not add inches to their height, mainly because they are virtually non-existent. But those who do exist will sometimes attempt to(Sharapova is about 6' and claims 6'2"!!!).

"Sure, some are still probably a bit overestimated (many claim this with Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman, for example) but are they completely unfounded?"

Yes many are completely unfounded. If Pitt were downgraded to 5-10 there would be demands of 5-9(there already are some now LOL). This is because he is a sex symbol and people hate his guts.


"For Sigourney and Nicole, I still fail to see evidence suggesting that they are less than what it listed here."

As I recall "my life", Nicole did not look bigger than Michael Keaton, who is listed here at 5'9.5. This is exactly what I meant when I say that tallish women always have an extra credit: she is listed at an inch over him, 5'10.5.

"Glenn claims that Sigourney is 5'11" (she used to be listed at 6' or so), whereas Mr. R states that Nicole may possibly be 5'11"+. Both of them have been on this site for a very long time and have seen dozens of celebs and most of the time are quite accurate in their claims."

I actually kind of agree with glenn on stallone lol, but glenn's and rob's opinions are just too "gentleman-like" in my opinion. I think they have a tendency to see women bigger than they really are, again just about EVERY tallish women seems to have 2 inches added to their heights here. Look up the Princess Diana page:"Often stooped a bit to make Charles appear taller." lol c'mon folks...

Click Here

To be fair to rob, i think diana's official height was 5-10 but charles' was 5-11. Extra credit at work again.I agree with most most of rob's listings on men, though.

"And to me, Sigourney also appeared shorter than Nicole in the other pics, but of course I have no idea what she's was wearing heel-wise. If Sigourney was wearing a minor heel, then the listings of the two are still on par with what is listed here at celebheights."

C. said on 9/Nov/08
Yes, a woman at 180 cm may appear taller than a man who is also 180 cm. However, being a tall woman myself, seeing a 5'11" woman doesn't appear all that tall to me in reality. So no, to me a 5'11" woman doesn't look enormous. But to other people, yes, especially if they don't see a woman often at that height. And also if they can't judge heel height either.

But that being said, most celebs here period are marked lower than what they are "officially" listed at. Tall women included-- Gweneth Paltrow (usually marked at 5'10"+), Charlize Theron (5'11"), etc. Why? Because there's strong evidence suggesting that they are not that tall. In fact, this site has gotten so popular that the listings of these celebs' height has been marked down in most cases.

Again, I never said that women don't care about height. Just that very tall women, especially those hovering over the 6' mark or over, are typically not going to be adding inches to their height. Geena Davis is a prime example, as I used to see listings of 6'2" quite often. But in reality, she's 6' tall and often downgraded to get film roles (who wants a woman to be taller than her male co-star?). As you can see on this site, plenty of women claiming that they are taller in reality have also been cut down-- Eva Longoria, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie...the list goes on. Same goes for Tom Cruise, Sly Stallone, Will Smith, and most popular men and women in Hollywood. Sure, some are still probably a bit overestimated (many claim this with Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman, for example) but are they completely unfounded? There has to be a reason why some celebs are so debated in terms of height, compared to those that are not (such as Nicole or Sigourney here). When you are notorious of wearing massive heels (Jeniffer Lopez) or massive shoes (Robert Downey Jr.) your "official stats" (not just height, weight as well) tend to be thrown out the window.

For Sigourney and Nicole, I still fail to see evidence suggesting that they are less than what it listed here. Glenn claims that Sigourney is 5'11" (she used to be listed at 6' or so), whereas Mr. R states that Nicole may possibly be 5'11"+. Both of them have been on this site for a very long time and have seen dozens of celebs and most of the time are quite accurate in their claims. Of course there is no photo evidence, yet there isn't a lot suggesting otherwise either. When I saw Nicole Kidman dwarfing Halle Berry (even with Halle's 1"-ish heel advantage), she has to at least be her listed height because Halle is no more than 160-163 in them. And to me, Sigourney also appeared shorter than Nicole in the other pics, but of course I have no idea what she's was wearing heel-wise. If Sigourney was wearing a minor heel, then the listings of the two are still on par with what is listed here at celebheights.

"What exactly do you base your opinion on?"

Pictures, films and personal experience.

"You're the one consistently stating that all of these women are overlisted, yet Brad Pitt is underlisted."

That is the plain truth. There is marked tendency, in this website, to give women much more credit than men as far as height is concerned, it is generally assumed that men care more about height than women do, that women "have no reason" to lie about their height, that they even try to diminish their height... There are many examples in this website that contradict this. Another thing that people don't seem to get notice of are the biological differences between male and female's builds: the longish silhouette that is proper of a woman's buid, not that of a man, usually leads people to believe that women are taller than men who in reality are about the same height. Consider this: when we see a 1.80m man walking down the street we don't take notice, it's a "normal" guy... but when we see a 1.80m woman it is always quite a sight, they look enormous. That is probably one of the reasons why there are so many overlisted "tallish" women in this website. I know that because I measure these regularly, and they usually turn out to be shorter than they first appeared to me... with men it is (usually) the opposite.

"So you find several pictures that you think says otherwise, but all of them have various angles and aren't the best for judging height period."

Nonsense. I always try to look for the best pictures I can find: full-body, non-"angled" pictures. I don't give a ratass what the result will be, it's not like anything is at stake, lol... and I may be wrong. Nicole, for example, may be slightly taller than I thought. I just would like to see the heights proved with good, unquestionable pictures. There are quite a few pages here that have no pictures posted at all! Look up the Brooke Shields page. People just take it for granted. And by the way if you have better pictures please do post them!

"Have YOU see any of these people?"

Personally? Very few.

"And you know, people are free to have their own opinion and do not have to agree with you."

Absolutely miss.

"And in all of those pics, she looks taller than Ewan McGregor and she's not wearing heels."

Hehehe... yes I noticed that she looks "taller" (geez!) by like 2 milimeters in the first pic, but it could be that she is standing straighter, I tried to find another picture of them without heels to confirm her slight advantage but was unable to, she really likes those heels of her!

"As for Brad, no comment. I've already stated my opinion and those pics don't prove to me otherwise."

On what exactly do you base your opinion, have you met these people? If pics won't change your opinion, what will change it?! Nothing I guess! Back to Sigourney!

Can't see Nicole at less than 5-10? Have you seen Moulin Rouge or the movie "my life" with Michael Keaton? Both these men are listed here at 177cm (5-9.5) and Nicole, without her heels (I know it's hard to imagine her without heels, but click on the pics below) is not taller or shorter (not noticeably, at least)than they are, Nicole is about 177cm too. She is at the very best 5-10, most likely a bit under that.

I honestly can't see Nicole under 5'10". On the other hand, Sigourney isn't that young anymore and it's very possible she has lost height, which I kind of doubt. To me, Nicole looks taller. But Sigourney looks bigger in terms of size. However, if she was wearing those flat, almost no heeled shoes with Nicole then yes, definitely taller. But Nicole typically wears anything from a 2" 1/2 - 3" standard heel so not very big. Anne in the third pic is again, wearing some chunky (and might I say ugly) heels which is giving her an advantage.
miser said on 5/Nov/08
from what I have seen so far I would say Sigourney is slightly taller than Nicole, Sigourney is more robust, she might around 5-10 barefoot, Nicole a bit under that.
C. said on 4/Nov/08
Anne is 5'7"-ish. She's also wearing some killer heels if you look at the group photo, although it's hard to see given the angle and darkness. And I can't distinguish Sigourney's heels at all. But just looking at the base, Anne has on some chunky high heels, as in platform wedge heels, compared to Nicole Kidman's standard 3" heels. It even looks chunkier and larger than Halle Berry's heels in the group photo.

What shocks me is that Nicole looks like she dwarfs Halle. She's listed here as 5'5 1/2" (down from the ridiculous 5'7") which may even be too much. More like 5'4". Nicole also looks to be at Sigourney's height in one of the other pictures, possibly even taller. But then again, I have no idea what Sigourney's wearing foot-wise.

"And yes, it's her own quote, but Rob also listed her at this height as well."

Maybe Rob does not know her or is undecided? I would think he takes actors at their word until further evidence.

"There are plenty of celebs that have quoted their height and are listed at something different."

Maybe it is because further evidence has emerged? (good pic)

"Why don't you go and find a pic proving her less than 5'11" as apparently you're the one not convinced."

I'm really not convinced either way, she might be 5-11 for all I know, but considering the general trend on this website I thought it unlikely that she is a full 5-11. I have done a quick google search, havn't found anything interesting.
C. said on 3/Nov/08
Again, I don't think it happens any less on either side. It's just a simple fact that stars shorter than average (i.e. Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman, etc.) are going to get much more evidence that they are even shorter in real life as they are more likely to add inches, not subtract compared to their much taller counterparts.

And yes, it's her own quote, but Rob also listed her at this height as well. There are plenty of celebs that have quoted their height and are listed at something different. Why don't you go and find a pic proving her less than 5'11" as apparently you're the one not convinced.

"One user supposedly overlists a female celeb's height and suddenly all (i.e. tall women who supposedly need a tall "role model") of them do?"

It's not just one, as I said, that type of comment is typical. These pages are filled with examples.

"If so, the same can be said for male celebs as well, as there are plenty of users claiming they are much taller than they are in real life, especially those who portray a certain masculine image."

I think this happens also, but on a much smaller scale, most men who post here hate the guts of these actors, they are always trying to get inches off their listed height. There are also girls who hate actresses... these are perhaps the most hilarious.

"And yes, 5'11" is a claim of Sigourney's height, just like all height listings on this site. But it's not just some off the wall estimation."

It's not an estimation, her is listed from her own quote.

"This site not only has information regarding height estimations based on photos and perspective, heel and lift height, etc., but it also has actual photo evidence."

I agree, the photo evidence (actual pics in person) is the most entertaining part of this website. Most important for judging too.

"And to me, the 5'11" claim is accurate."

We don't have to take her at her word, you know, that is the point. Where are the pics?
C. said on 31/Oct/08

And yes, 5'11" is a claim of Sigourney's height, just like all height listings on this site. But it's not just some off the wall estimation. This site not only has information regarding height estimations based on photos and perspective, heel and lift height, etc., but it also has actual photo evidence. And not just professional shots with other celebs which can easily be manipulated, but actual pics in person which IMO is the best evidence; if not the only reliable evidence period. But again, you don't have to agree. However, I do. And to me, the 5'11" claim is accurate.
miser said on 31/Oct/08
The point was that these girls seem to elect an actress as their role model of "tallness" and then proceed to try to over-list their height...

Do you have any pics of Sigourney standing? There aren't any in this page. Just a 5'11 claim.
C. said on 30/Oct/08
And this is supposed to convince me because...? I see tall girls all the time who round down, it's pretty common. Whether you believe it or not. Again, you have your opinion. But I have mine and I believe this site because it is accurate, IMO. You don't have to agree.

Now can we get back to Sigourney please?
miser said on 30/Oct/08
"Heels are easy to see and they give much less height than one believes, whereas lifts can be hidden."

Lol, come on, spare me yourself of this "lifts" talk, this is bull. I mean how many inches can you "hide" in shoes, SERIOUSLY? On the other hand, the heels these girls use these days are just massive, I don't know how they manage to keep their balance on these things.

Here's a typical sample of the type of comment that appears on these girls pages here(this one is from Mischa Barton's page, yet ANOTHER over-listed 5-8 girl - are ALL of them overlisted?!)

Astrid says on 22/Jun/07
Olerika, she's not 5'8". Come ON. Who are you kidding??

I'm a teenage girl and I'm 5'9.75" - seeing as she always slouches and wears flats I'd say she would try to avoid even the slightest exaggeration on her height at all costs.

Most tall women/girls dislike their tallness and will exaggerate DOWN. Take me, for example. Even though my height is CLOSER to 5'10", I still say I'm 5'9". Why? Because it makes me feel more comfortable with myself.

AND regardless as to what the bio she said when she was 18 (I'm guessing '04 - where's the link), she has already said last year that she's 5'9"!!!

Oh and funsized is right, I think she said she was 5'7" when she was 15.... this might have been true, she still could have done growing since then.

Bottom line: she's 5'9.5" at the minimum.

So, no C., most girls are definitely not ashamed of being tall these days, lol.

Heels are easy to see and they give much less height than one believes, whereas lifts can be hidden. That, and most men in Hollywood period are overlisted. One picture doesn't necessarily prove anything, especially when pictures can be photoshopped to make the man look taller than he actually is. The most popular pages on this site are regarding Hollywood men whom are all lift-obsessed. Brad Pitt is a prime example. If Brad is taller than 5'11" (if he is 5'11" which I doubt), no way can Gweneth Paltrow who's no more than 5'9" be virtually identical in height to him. So please, spare me.

I'm fairly sure that this website UNDER-lists the heights of men who are considered good-looking, and OVER-lists the height "tallish" women. Look up the Nicole Kidman's page here, there are some like-opinions there. There's one reader who says that Nicole looks smaller than Brad Pitt whether she has heels on or not but still she is listed at only 1 centimeter shorter than him!!! Look up the Brad Pitt page also, there isn't an hour that goes by without some guy asking to take an inch off his height, lol! There are other actors that are under listed too, but not many actresses.

A 5'10" - 5'11" woman isn't all that rare to come by. Over 6', yes, but I don't doubt that some of these women are that tall. I see several women at 5'11" and above where I am, so I don't think it's a big stretch to see women in Hollywood at that height. However, you have your opinion and I have mine. I think most of Rob's listings on these celebs are pretty accurate, if not dead on.
miser said on 30/Oct/08
Yes they are tall... they are tall WOMEN. 5-8, 5-9 is tall for women, but not for men, is that clear? And that is fine, I don't understand why a woman would like to be 5'11" or 6'. The thing is that whenever people see a rather "big" girl like Liv Tyler or Leelee Sobieski they go crazy and want to press men's standards of tallness on them. Then they call them 5'10", 5'11" or 6' which is absurd in almost all cases. Heels play a big part in this misconception also. Almost all of these "big"(5-8,5-9 range) girls are over-listed in this website. What I said about Sharapova is true, she is in reality about 181cm/182cm (5'11".5)which is huge for a girl but she claims she is 6-2, lol. There's a photo of her(on heels) and Uma on her page, and Uma does not look 5-11 to me, maybe 5-10. In the actual reality 5-11 women just don't come by often, they are very rare... Sigourney does look tall, but she might not be a full 5-11.
C. said on 29/Oct/08
Maria Sharapova is an athlete, and nearly all of them are way over-listed, even more than Hollywood celebs. Primarily because it's all about "official" stats and whatnot, as height is seen as a huge advantage virtually all of the time. Look all around this site at the views on really tall women-- they are deemed as unattractive and unfeminine. Uma Thurman has a complex about her height, not to mention she's always bending down like most truly tall women do. (The pic that used to be up on this site clearly shows that she's at least 5'11" if not taller.)

And a 5'8"-9" woman is hardly ever going to claim she's 5'11"-6". I've never witness that happen in my life. I'm in the 5'9" range myself and never would I claim a "wannabe" 5'11". People easily mistake me for that height, but it's not all that hard to differentiate between 5'9" and 5'11". And Sigourney isn't shorter than what's she's listed here. She's very, very tall. No way does she look under 180 cm. If she's 5'9", she's definitely the tallest one I've ever seen on the screen.
C. said on 28/Oct/08
How do you know all of them are over-listed? They are tall women. Leelee is about 5'10" as she's listed here, but for her 6'2" quote most people period believe a 5-6" heel really give that much height. As for Nicole Kidman, many "old timers" here on this site have seen her in person and claim that she's as tall as what she's listed. Some say she's even taller than what she's listed at here.

And did I say tall woman never lie? No. I said hardly, because they hardly do when it comes to upgrading their height. I'm a tall woman myself and honestly, I'm not going to be boosting several inches to my height simply because there is no reason to do so, unlike men. Almost always tall women will shave an inch or two off (I know many who do this, I used to do it myself), whereas with shorter women it's the opposite. Most people here attest to that. Also, their publicists also may boost their height-- it's not always them stating their height. Sigourney has stated 5'11" but so does Uma, but people here whom again, have seen them in person claim that they are taller.
miser said on 28/Oct/08
Take a look at Maria Sharapova, she is listed at 6-2 (from her own quote)which is clear nonsense. She is stretching it biiiiiiiig time and still says "oh I wish I wasn't this tall!" LOL!!!

And yes "John" is in all likelyhood a woman, height ranging from 5-8 or 5-9(tops), a wannabee 5'11"/6'.
miser said on 27/Oct/08
I don't have to believe anyone, I know for a fact that many "regular" women do lie. After going through this website I learned that TV women are no different. This website is filled with examples. Maria Sharapova, Uma Thurman, Leelee Sobieski, Nicole Kidman, Liv Tyler and others are over-listed here, and it's mostly because of their own quotes! They lie to AUGMENT their height, don't give me this nonsense that women are "ashamed" of being tall! Look at Leelee Sobieski who prides herself of being 6'2" in heels when she clearly is not. She looks 5-11 in heels.
C. said on 27/Oct/08
A tall woman hardly ever lies about her height in terms of overestimating. Believe me, they don't. As for John, he doesn't seem like a troll. He just has some views that not everyone agrees with. Doesn't mean he's lying about his gender or his height.
miser said on 25/Oct/08
"John" on 4/Oct/08 was probably a woman lol. anyone got any pics? not convinced, might she not be another over-listed woman? after going through this website i learned that women lie about their height too, not only about their weight.
C. said on 11/Oct/08
Why does this stuff always surface on Sigourney's page?

@ John: That's your preference, but you have no right to say certain guys only date short women because they want to be in control. I find that comment quite offensive and I happen to be a tall woman.

Sometimes it baffles me when people either bash tall or short people (men and women) because they either have a complex or whatever. You're free to like who you like but don't bash or belittle a person based on their height. That, and there's plenty who like short women, tall women, and just women in general. Height may or may not be a factor at all.
Hugh said on 5/Oct/08
John does have a point. Being tall myself I can say that you can feel quite awkward beside a woman who is a foot shorter than you.
Alex said on 4/Oct/08
John, you go for a woman just because her legs or her figure? C'mon how superficial are you?, don't you see you' re missing the most important thing to looking at in a woman? Her BRAIN. I'm a man, a young man but still i'm smarter than you because to me it doesn't matter if the woman i wanna date is tall or short, what matters is what she have running in the brain, her way of thinking!
John said on 4/Oct/08
As a 6'4 tall man, I refuse to date short women. I'm sorry.. but short women just aren't attractive. At least not as attractive as tall women. I LOVE women in the 5'8 to 6 foot range. They have the greatest leges, and best figures. And no, to all the short girls who think all the tall guys want you because you think you're "cute" you've got it all backwards. The guys that like you have insecurity issues and want to control you because you look like a midget. Sorry for being mean but it's the truth.
Tom said on 16/Sep/08
weaver is going to appear with my aspie director at my asperger's syndrome conference on the 22nd. I can gladly give you a closeup estimate of what I think she is or I can simply ask her in person. above, she claims she is 5'11 so I will check with her on that to make sure.
RisingForce said on 10/Sep/08
I've heard 5'10 1/2" a lot for her. I'm not sure where that figure comes from but she does look a solid 5'11".
Tom said on 8/Aug/08
She claims she is 5'11 and 1/2 so that is nearly 6ft tall. Yes, she is a nice person and she is a fantastic actress. She also is familiar with Asperger's Syndrome and attends conferences for it. She met the leader of my Aspie Group,Michael J.Carley. She really towered over him.
Frank2 said on 5/Aug/08
I've seen her in flats and she's definitely a solid 5'11". Also, very nice.
Tom said on 4/Aug/08
Sigourney, you are one of the greatest actresses alive. Keep up the good work.
anonymous said on 29/Jul/08
Christ...ur not sigourney weaver. If on the off chance u r, why are you on a website commenting on your own height. Pathetic.
Sigourney said on 28/Jul/08
Being tall and an actress might be glamourous, but let me tell you, I am not everyon's cup of tea. Many men don't like my height and have passed me over for women of average height or petite women. They have the attitude that richard has, they think that smaller women are more appealing. By the same token,some people have commented on how they like my height. I take it in stride. I have been very fortunate to have a good career and many fans. Not many movies used my height as an advantage. When I play tough characters some people say I am imposing because of my height. Christie, I am sure many men adore tall women like yourself, but not all of them. Variety is the spice of life. To each his own! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
anonymous said on 28/Jul/08
wow, i've just gotta say this back and forth between richard christie is just too entertaining. But seriously, let the girl have her opinions. However, Christie while I am certainly not suggesting--as some have--that you belong in an institution, i seriously think you need to get off your high horse (no pun intended). Realistically, if you looked even remotely like christie brinkely you wouldnt be spending your days posting on this website, instead you would be, oh i dont know, a model! So lets be real, obviously your not as attractive as you claim--though in no way am i saying your ugly. As well, I dont think its fair of you to state as fact that smaller girls are automatically disadvantaged and even the beautiful ones cannot be as desired as beautiful tall girls. Honestly, I dont think that makes you a bad person, but you see how thats kind of wrong. As an unbiased person in this case, I think you may just be saying that cause your biased for taller girls. Now if you've taken the time--anyone--to read this, seriously go find something better to do, already too much of your time has been dedicated to reading this site.

PS because ur obviously going to attack me on some grounds and immediately assume I'm short, I'm a guy and I'm a 6-5 guy

Sigourney is really tall and hot - especially when u put her age into factor - bty she has a tall daughter too who is going to uni-

oopps sorry i forgot to write
in the guniess book of world records 2002 (haha long time ago)
it says she's 6"0
and i think thats closer to accurate
if not she's at least 182
richard said on 3/Jul/08
well yvonnne if i happen to favor small women over tall ones so be it. and if you don't like it that is tough for you. don't need counselling for deeply expressing my tastes.
richard said on 1/Jul/08
well yvonne i am a man who is fascinated by petite small women. don't need counseling for that honey. if you have a problem with my taste and fascination with small women you can go fxck yourself because frankly i really don't care what you think about me or my tastes.
lillee said on 5/Jun/08
whenever I see her pictured with tall men she is always taller. She looked at least the same height as Matthew Fox who is 6'2" at least 6'3" in shoes. She must be at least 6' maybe taller as I doubt she wears 6 inch heels
Yvonne said on 4/Jun/08
I only want to add one comment - Richard sounds completely obsessed with being small. I think he should seek counselling, instead of transposing his insecurities onto a site such as this.
Richard said on 1/Jun/08
Do you really believe Weaver is as tall as 6'1? Hell no!
C. said on 1/Jun/08
@ Sophie: Exactly. Thank you.

This short/tall stuff needs to stop. No one cares. Besides, this is Sigourney's page to discuss her height. After all, that's what this site is for. The general height thread is a free-for-all. The trolling is getting ridiculous. As you can see, there has hardly been anything relating to Sigourney at all. Just bickering back and forth.
Richard said on 30/May/08
By the way I agree with Candice, petite height for a woman makes a woman more of a woman and more feminine. And if she is pretty too that is a plus! Let's give it up for Candice and all those others who stick up for the beauty and advantages of petite women. I do find petite women much more delicate, feminine and prettier. And most men do.
Richard said on 30/May/08
True,but to me I like the petites. That is just my taste. As for Christie she is wrong on the way she is going about expressing herself about her height and tall women. She can do it in a much nicer way than talking as if tall women are superior to petite women because that is illogical and certainly not true at all. She has no right making herself seem superior to anyone else just because of her tall height. Its ridiculous and this is the point I am debating here with her. She can just say she enjoys the fact that she was created tall. She doesnt have to go putting others down about it because that just isnt fair. and it isnt right for her to say that petite women are jealous of tall women because that is irrational and absurd. There are plenty of petite women who I know who enjoy their petiteness and are very content with their height and bodies. Just want Christie to wake up and realize this.
Richard said on 29/May/08
Candice, you couldn't have expressed the truth any better to a snot like Christie and I am with you all the way on that. As for Supermanfan, look here, that is just you and your preference. Good for you if your wife is tall. I really don't care though it is not my preference. I prefer petite beauties. And nothing that you or a snot like Christie is going to change my taste and view towards women.
Supermanfan380 said on 29/May/08
Richard, petite or tall makes no difference at all, in terms of the quality of a person. Maybe to the NBA, but not in the quality of a woman. My wife is 5'10.5", and she is beautiful. I like taller women, always have, but it is just a matter of taste, nothing more or less. Maybe just what -Christie- says about the "statuesque figure". The limb length and long waist has always been attractive to me. The fact that she is taller than I am has NEVER been an issue for us. We have had arguments about MANY things, as any healthy couple does, but her being tall has never been a problem in any way. Shallow minded people first notice that she is taller than me, and they sometimes ask if it has ever caused us problems, but in reality we are both happy to tell them, it is the only thing that has never been an issue. She was always sensitive about her height, because a lot of men told her that it made her
Candice said on 28/May/08
Ya know what, Christie, do yourself a big favor and get your stuck up self off this forum. Nobody likes a bragger like you who thinks you are better than everyone else just because you are of tall height. Please! Just for your information I am a petite woman who is pretty and I don't care if 6ft tall supermodels invaded the rest of this earth, I love being petite because it is very feminine and pleasing to men and has great advantages and I wouldn't change my petiteness if i could for anything. You are really just a stuck up snotty B*tch who has very low self -esteem and feels that the only way to make herself feel big and on top of everyone else is to degrade them and their qualities and try to make them inferior to you. I have got news for you, honey,you are a very obnoxious person for having the nature to do what you are doing and you aren't fooling anyone else here except yourself because not everyone wishes to be tall like you and there are plenty of women on this earth who feel the same way just like me to be blessed that they are of petite feminie height and pleasing to the male eye for our petite femininety and beauty so why don't you just grow up and get a life and some logic sense and realize that nobody likes a bragger and not the whole world is going to favor you as better just because you are tall.
Richard said on 28/May/08
HA! Christie, who are you kidding? All I can say to you is that you really need to get your head examined! You really have some mental disorder by the way you think and write and I do feel sorry for you because there is no way you can feel good about yourself if you try to make yourself superior to other women just because you are taller than most women. If you had healthy self- esteem you would not have to be bragging on this forum about how great being tall is IN YOUR OPINION. And thinking that I am a woman and that petites are jealous of model tall women, girl you really belong in a mental asylum for such crazy, idiotic,stupidity that you post on these sites. To be honest I won't say any more to you because you obviously are just too stubborn to get through to and your are just not worth the time and energy to fight with and argue with whether it is a man or woman who is trying to get through to your demented brain.
Christie said on 24/May/08
Richard, you are not a man! No guy would ever write so many times a day about this petite/tall women issue. You are a petite woman hating the fact that you can never stand up to a gorgeous model like woman. Seeing the model beauties in various fashion magazines, all of them being above 5'9'', must make you green with envy. Nevertheless, if you really are a guy (no way!) then I feel very sorry for your beautiful petite woman.....:-) No normal guy would ever argue with a woman whether tall or small is better. Only a very, very insecure idiot!!! It would really be enough to write just once what you prefer. Look how many notes you have left on this chat, instead. You feel sorry for me but there is really no reason. I feel very good about myself. I only wrote that I find taller people (men and women) more beautiful because of their statuesque figure and aristocratic charm. You, on the other hand, find small ladies more attractive. Ok, it is your taste and you should be happy with it and stick to it! Just like I will always stick to believing that tall is better and more charming!
Sophie said on 22/May/08
What is with all these vain women saying that they have beautiful faces/long legs?! Get a grip we are talking about Sigourney Weaver and if you want to promote yourself as either a petite or an amazon go on a chat/dating site.

P.S. am 5ft 11 but beautiful comes in different shapes and sizes-follow C's advice he/she has brains and all these women bragging about how much better it is to be tall/small should tell someone who cares...
I'm not including all the girls here just ones like CHRISTY (Christie Brinkley/Cheryl Tiegs please post that to someone who ives a damn!)
But can everyone else quit the whole petite/tall is better because both are gorgeous and we should all be able to see that!
OK!?!
Come on, I'm 14 and this kind of squabbling belongs in the schoolground!
Richard said on 9/May/08
C., everything you said I commend you for however I honestly must say that in regards to Christie, not only is she biased but insecure and jealous. If she was content about herself she wouldn't have to go bragging about herself and degrading really beautiful petite women on a public forum. I will let her be, however, I do feel very sorry for her because jealousy is an ugly monster and can make a person very mean and bitter,as Christie is presenting herself, along with emotional and physical insecurities.
C. said on 8/May/08
Most women in Hollywood are stick thin regardless of their height. Many of them have little curves and could hardly be called having an hourglass figure (i.e. Jessica Alba)-- short, average or tall. So I have no idea where you're seeing that. Women in the real world, maybe. But in Hollywood? Hardly. All of those women you see, from Eva Longoria to Gweneth Paltrow are extremely thin and most say they appear anorexic in person.

And many men love these women, as some do like women whom are very thin, gauntly even. There are also those that like women a bit athletic, or curvier or whatever. There really is no standard, honestly. (Also, who's not to say they aren't real women either? Some of them may be naturally thin, and that's not their fault. Others whom have eating disorders need help.) The hourglass was popular in Marilyn Monroe's time, but the same can hardly apply in the 80s, 90s, and into the present day. But yes, men do like petite women, but they like all women honestly. It all depends on the country and culture.

And sure, models are tall and thin, but many of these actresses are just as thin even with or without the height. The media perpetuates thinness in general, not so much height-- unless you're a male. As for prettier faces, that also has a standard, particularly a western one, held by the media. Again, in other countries the same may not apply at all.

And Christie has her biases, but so does everyone else. It's not worth arguing over. Let her be-- you're not going to change her mind or anything, and her view on yours. But of course the whole "tallness is better" attitude will rub people the wrong way. Hell, it does for me and I'm tall. I have plenty of family members whom are of average or short height and I would be angry if someone said they aren't as pretty because of their height, because frankly, that has nothing to do with anything. Your perceived beauty is a luck of the draw. There are less attractive tall women due to sheer numbers, as most women are not tall. Most people period fall in between average height, therefore most of the attractive people are of average height. It's statistics 101.
Candice said on 7/May/08
You know what is really vexing? Christie and her jealousy of woman with hour glass figures and gorgeous faces. Over centuries men have said that they prefer the petite height, hourglass shape and a pretty face. This isn't to say that some men don't prefer other shapes, but a majority of men like hourglass, petite beauties. And you know what,Christie? If you aren'tone of these beauties, tough! I'm tired of the tall, stick- thin media calling short hourglass women and size zero women ugly just so they can boost the egos of insecure taller women who are emotional eaters. These ad campaigns (and you know which ones I'm talking about) who show "real women" are the works of denial. There are women who are better looking than you Christie, who have more desirable and dainty builds and prettier faces! You just have to accept that and stop trying to boast about yourself on this site to make yourself think you are above everyone else because you aren't. Once you come to grips with that you are living back in the real world.
Richard said on 7/May/08
C.,I am sure this madness will stop once Christie realizes she has low self esteem and is jealous of beautiful petite feminine looking women who have prettier faces and figures than tall women and learns to get over her overrated self. Candice, you are absolutely right! Christie is just jealous of naturally beautiful petite women because 1.)they are more feminine looking in shape and size, 2.)their petiteness makes their beauty dainty,feminine and prettier, 3.)petites are favored more by men over tall women because petites bring out a man's masculine qualities, 4.)Men find it much easier to have a relationship with petites in many aspects,esp.physical aspects. 5.)Christie just wishes she was one of the beautiful,dainty women and because she isn't she has nothing better to do than to make degrading comments about them to make herself feel superior out of downright jealousy. How sad for her. Hope she grows up and gets a life.
Richard said on 7/May/08
When snobby Christie learns to get over that inflated opinion of herself then maybe all this crap will stop. She has to stop trying to feel she is superior to shorter women just because she is tall. C. is correct!Beautiful women are beautiful regardless of their height and once Christie lets that sink into her thick snobby skull then maybe there will be peace once and for all on this forum!
C. said on 7/May/08
Will this madness ever stop? Pretty people are pretty people, regardless of their height. Most people do not care, except for perhaps most on this site. Short or tall women are not superior in terms of looks-- nor is one of them prettier or more attractive in general, it all depends on your taste. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, period.
Candice said on 6/May/08
Christie is just madly jealous of naturally beautiful petite women with healthy, curvacious hour glass figures and beautiful faces. Christie, please do yourself a huge favor for yourself and the rest of the world and get over yourself. The world isn't going to stop producing really beautiful petite women just because you feel insecure about your tall height and looks. Wishing to try to make yourself superior to short women only goes to show how insecure you are about yourself and the fact that you can't handle that a petite woman may in fact be more beautiful than tall stuck up scum like you.
Candice said on 6/May/08
I don't know why most people think that being tall is so wonderful. Don't get me wrong, I think tall women and models are beautiful. But I love how dainty and petite short women look. In fact they are prettier. I'm 5'2" and I would never want to be taller.

Richard said on 6/May/08
Oh and just to let you know Christie to prove your theory wrong about tall women there are lots of petite woman with the most gorgeous faces who outshine the tall women and have men taking notice of them over the taller ones!!! So sorry if you cannot accept that! You really have jealous, insecure problems,girl! So please do me a favor and get over yourself!
Richard said on 6/May/08
Christie, that is just your opinion. It's not a fact. You really need to get over yourself! And stop fooling yourself. It makes no difference what height you are, if a woman has a beautiful face then she is beautiful no matter how tall she is and just for your information you are nuts in the head if you think I am a woman! I am a 37 year old man with success as pilot and happily engaged to a petite woman whom I consider the most beautiful woman in the world. You really need to get over yourself because not everyone is going to favor tall good looking woman over petite ones. The whole world doesn't think the way you do and once you realize that the better off you will be.
Christie said on 3/May/08
Dear Richard, everyone has his/her own taste. I find taller people more atractive than smaller ones. However, I do not deny that short people cannot be good looking. Of course, there are a lot of petite women with beautiful faces but being short does not give them that extra "something" as it does for tall women. In Italy there is a nice saying about tall women. Their height adds an extra spice to their beauty. Meaning: a petite woman with a beautiful face will never be as striking as a tall woman with a beautiful face. By the way, I believe you are a petite woman, dear Richard......:-)
Richard said on 29/Apr/08
No kidding! Bill Murray was claimed as 6 ft. 2 in.? No kidding! Do you think he may in fact be? Something tells me he can't be that tall. Do check out Gorillas in the Mist and let me know what you think of Sig's height in that flick. Because she looks like she is about 5'11 standing next to a solid 6'1 Bryan Brown. I may take your word on it that she could be a real close 6 footer if you say she is 5'11 1/2"!
C. said on 28/Apr/08
I've seen "Ghostbusters" and yeah, she does only look a bit smaller than Bill Murray (who some claim is 6'2" rather than 6'1" on this site) so I'm thinking 6', maybe 5'11 1/2" at the smallest.
Richard said on 26/Apr/08
True,C.,but do you really think Sigourney may well in fact be 6ft? When I watch Ghostbusters she appears like only one inch shorter than 6'1 Bill Murray. In Gorillas in the Mist she looks more like 5'11 standing face to face near Bryan Brown who is a solid 6'1? Have you seen these Weaver Flicks? What do you think?
C. said on 25/Apr/08
I think Sigourney claims she's 5'11", but she may be like Uma (who is a weak 6') who claims the same thing. But they both look 6' or close to it, and with heels they look even taller. Because a 6' woman is more likely to downgrade compared to a man in Hollywood. At 6' you start dwarfing some of of the leading men.

Geena Davis is also 6' and I can't see Sigourney as shorter than her but given that it's an inch, it's very hard to tell. Also, she's probably lost a bit of height, given that's she's older now. But she's nothing shorter than 5'11" that's for sure.
Richard said on 25/Apr/08
Hello,C.!!! Absolutely correct what you stated back too. I couldn't agree more with you. I have seen petite women who have prettier faces than tall, long, legged women, while I have seen tall women with longer, slimmer, sexier legs. That is what makes each kind attractive in their own way! By the way, do you know that I read somewhere that Sigourney Weaver was actually placed as 6ft. tall and people have actually said that she was. Yet, Weaver is stating that she is indeed 5'11 so I bet that when she is in public she is in heals which makes her appear over 5'11 and people mistake her for being 6 ft. when it is the heels that give her an inch lift. What do you think, C.?
C. said on 25/Apr/08
Of course short women can be more pretty than tall women and vise-versa. And average height women can be pretty too (apparently it seems that they're always left out of the equation). It's usually one's genes that determine that. (i.e. Rebecca Romijn is about the same height as Sigourney, yet their attractiveness...very different.)

As for Sigourney, some sites state her as 6'. I think that's possible as sometimes she appears taller than 180.

Message For CHRISTIE : you are just jealous of petite women otherwise it wouldn't bother you that petite women have the confidence in themselves to know that they are much more beautiful than a tall snob like yourself. And you also wouldn't have to bash really beautiful petite women who are prettier in the face than you and compare them to your tall self. (THIS MESSAGE IS DIRECTED SPECIALLY AT SNOBBY CHRISTIE)

Oh and by the way C., I also forgot to commend you for that true statement you made in which you say,"attractive people come in all shapes and sizes." So true to that. Perhaps that statement will wake stuck up Christie up and teach her a lesson as well as all these other tall women braggers. Petites can be even more beautiful.

C., as you can see I deeply apologize for directing all of what I said at you that I mean to direct at Christie as I have posted on Kate's height forum. Sorry for the mix up there. But what YOU were also wrong for is thinking that just because another female dislikes Kate and doesn't find her attractive or pretty they are jealous? That is so immature and ridiculous. Everyone has opinions about Kate and not all of them are going to be the same. That is why they are called OPINIONS. So as I said if some opinions are that Kate is not attractive or pretty then so be it. Everyone is entitled to opinions and nobody is jealous just because they don't favor this certain celebrity. All the more reason these girls don't have any jealous issues when they know they are more beautiful than Kate. I was saying you must have insecurities about yourself if it bothers you so much that other women out there know they are more beautiful than your fave celebs. If it didn't you would be content about this and accept the opinions of kate as well and move on.

@ Richard: What are you talking about? I haven't made any comment about myself whatsoever, so I have no idea where you're getting that I'm bragging (I also never mentioned my height on this page either). I also have nothing against short women, all I'm stating is that if you want to discuss height preferences, go to the general height section. This is Sigourney's page to discuss HER height.

Again, it seems that you're trying to stir up arguments when there are none. Christie was wrong for some of her comments, but so were you for your remarks as well. As I said previously, attractive people come in all shapes and sizes. Hollywood as well as the real world proves that.

C, all i am saying is you need to get over your jealousy of beautiful petite women who may in fact be even more beautiful than a tall attractive dame such as you. not to mention the fact that you have to brag about yourself only proves you have insecurities.

@ Richard: I think we could care less about your preferences. Go on the general height section to discuss that. This is Sigourney's page and whether or not you think she's ugly or too tall or whatever is irrelevant. I've seen your comments a number of times and you're usually trying to stir up some sort of argument.

And if you're masculinity/femininity needs to be confirmed/reaffirmed with society's view on what is deemed as acceptable then that's you. That's not everyone. Some countries don't have this notion of height "acceptability" either. Especially when men or women are close in height, or when people in general could care less about height altogether, among other things. Wallace said it best-- striking and beautiful women (and people in general) come in a variety of sizes.

I think many women tend to like tall men because it makes them feel petite and feminine. In the same way men like women who are shorter than them as it reaffirms their masculinity.
Richard said on 22/Apr/08
Christie, don't fool yourself. There are petite women out there with the loveliest faces you can ever imagine who surpass tall women as yourself. So just because you are tall doesn't make you better than shorter women because there are plenty of petite babes out there who have a beauty that surpasses the likes of tall ones, yes, facially and bodily!
Richard said on 22/Apr/08
Yeah Christie better get a life because all she is is a stuck up prima donna who is jealous of truly beautiful petite women with gorgeous faces.
Wallace said on 22/Apr/08
Striking and beautiful women come in a variety of sizes. Christie you seem to have a chip on your shoulder... Mixture of Brinkley/Tiegs??? Self-praise is no praise at all!!!

Looked slightly shorter than Missi Pyle in the few scenes they had together in Galaxy Quest.
Christie said on 20/Apr/08
Well, I am a very tall lady. Being 182 cm (5'11 1/2) tall, slim, small-boned and blond has drawn a lot of men to me since my teen years. I find it very often unpleasant because wherever I go, guys are going crazy over me. Looking like a mixture of Christie Brinkley/Cheryl Tiegs can truly be hard sometimes..... To be honest, I love my height and would never want to be below 5'10''. It is a great pity that so many tall and pretty women suffer because of their height and therefore, they slouch and wear only flat shoes. It is an advantage to be tall and a woman should wear her height proudly and be comfortable and happy about it. If there is a woman with a beautiful face and a tall body, she ALWAYS has an advantage over a short woman with just a beautiful face. The tall one always stands more out and the short one has always something missing there...... A lot of men (mainly the insecure ones) prefer shorter women without a striking face. This way they do not need to worry about their girl being "stolen" away by another guy. Only a strong character can stand other men turning their heads at his woman. By the way, Sigourney Weaver is not particularly pretty in face. However, she still has a very good figure and a great posture.
Richard said on 20/Apr/08
Well I prefer petite women over tall women,whether any of you tall ladies want to hear that or not. They make me feel more masculine than big tall women. So as you can see Sigourney ain't my type of woman. She ain't even pretty either.
