How tall is Sigourney Weaver

Sigourney Weaver's Height

5ft 10 ¼ (178.4 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 @ LFCC
[Height Comparison Video]
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 was christened Susan but for some reason I thought I was too tall for the name — I was already 5 feet 10 inches when I was 12 years old. So I just took Sigourney out of a book by F. Scott Fitzgerald and I don’t know how, or why, but I just kept it.

I think she was definitely close to 5'11 1/2 (181.5cm) in her peak, and nowadays she's between 178.5-179.7cm (5'10.25-5'10.75).

@ Paddy - I don’t think Rob will upgrade her!
Paddy said on 18/Mar/23
Upgrade her Rob, she was 182 flat peak and looked around that in the Alien films. now she's 180ish.
Andrey Lykov said on 2/Mar/23
A really tall lady, a peak height of 5.11 1/2 is quite possible.
Nik Ashton said on 20/Jan/23
@ Jared Tyler - I very much doubt she is 5’11.75”!

To be honest Rob has over listed her current!

Editor Rob
She does look to have lost a bit more height in recent couple of years.
Vick said on 3/Sep/22
Hey Rob,
Does a strong 5’11 fit her better peak? Could be 5’11.5 in the afternoon she never seem to fall short of 6’ on camera
Editor Rob
11.25 is probably highest I'd go
Jared Tyler said on 27/Feb/22
Why did you lower her peak height? Didn't you originally have her listed as 5'11 3/4 for her peak height?
Editor Rob
She's been on the peak for many years now
Jared Tyler said on 7/Feb/22
Peak: 6ft 1/2. I think she always lied about her height

Current: 5ft 11 3/4.

She's a great actress and I think she's a little taller than you have her listed.
Talk Sam said on 30/Dec/21
That’s hard to compete Weaver has always seemed to give a genuine taller impression than Kidman, I’ve always been struck by the latter as a somewhat strong 5’10”, whereas Weaver was often listed as six foot back in the day, although her own claims were more accurate.
Bobby (1.78m) said on 28/Dec/21
Amazingly, Nicole Kidman and Sigourney Weaver are the same height even though Weaver was a taller woman in her youth. I thought, by now, Kidman would have lost a bit of height since she's in her 50s (54) and Weaver is in her 70s (72). I suppose that 54 is not a height where someone will lose any noticeable height compared to their 20s and 30s.

Do you think, Rob, that Kidman and Weaver would be eye-to-eye?

5ft11.5 peak and three-quarters of an inch less today. 🎈🎁🥂😁👌 XXX

Johno said on 28/Aug/21
If we were to ignore the shoe advantage and take account of her excess hair, she would not be taller than 5'11 here. Now, taking her 1.5-inch footwear advantage into consideration, she is likely gaining 1-1.25-inches because I assume she is wearing heels, thus she is likely not any taller than 5'10, possibly even as low as 5'9.75. I would say is 1.75-2-inches taller than Rob.
Gladstone Screwer said on 28/Jun/21
Pure class, this lady. She was in a couple of Doc Martin episodes about 8 years ago. She was great, effortlessly cool. Always looked close to 6 feet.
Top actress.

You'll scarcely credit this Chaos, but other people have told me that very thing at various times in the past. I can't imagine why. And anyway, making sense is all very well, but it's much more important to have fun.

Okay, so I tend to go off on odd tangents. But really, consider the character of Princess Leia in Star Wars, who is this short, rather plain-looking woman, who has been captured by mass-murdering space Nazis. Does she display any fear whatsoever? Nope. She defies and insults her captors and, when Luke, Han and Chewy come to rescue her, she insults them, and proceeds to give them orders. She never says thank you, or expresses admiration for their courage. She even mocks Luke's height, even though she herself is knee-high to a baby peanut. And the whole time she does all this, she is wearing a floor-length dress. Sexuality is only one aspect of human personality that Star Wars characters lack. They lack most of the other ones too.

Ripley in Alien is left in charge after the captain is captured by the alien. She shows fear, anger and doubt, and at one point is on the verge of tears with frustration. In the end, when she is trapped in the shuttle with the alien, she visibly struggles to keep from giving way to terror. The character of Ripley is not written in such a way that she could have been masculine in the original script and played by Clint Eastwood. Also, she's big and strong, which gives her the necessary physical authority to give orders to the other characters, including the huge and powerful Parker (played by the huge and powerful Yaphet Kotto.) So there's a lot of real humanity in Alien, where there is virtually none in Star Wars.

@Ian you don’t make sense
Ian C. said on 20/Feb/21
Weaver's character (Ripley) in Alien is allowed to be courageous and authoritative, but also feminine. When the alien surprises her in the movie's climax, she screams. Nowadays female heroes are so tough that they could all be played by Charles Bronson, just by changing the name and sex of the character, which is pretty unrealistic, in my sexist view.

Princess Leia in Star Wars, for example, is wholly masculine. She could have been called Prince Leia and played by Harrison Ford, without changing any of her lines (except for that awkward bit where she kisses Luke, whom she immediately dumps as a romantic partner.) Luke seems to be sexless. Darth Vader sired Luke in his Annakin Skywalker days, but after his transformation to Darth, lost all interest in sex. The only characters in Star Wars that are sexed are Luke's Aunt and Uncle, who are elderly and childless. Everybody else is celibate. Jabba the Hut dresses Leia up as a slave girl, but since he is a being of different species, it is not clear why he wants to see her in a bikini.

I wonder if the 5'10.5" figure came from Sigourney? That might be why Mel Gibson remembered her claiming 5'10". Although I'd actually give her a bit over 5'11" even assuming I'm right about Gibson being 5'9" flat peak. Here's a scene that shows how they looked in a close up with Mel in roughly 3" footwear and Sigourney in flats: Click Here That's why Mel said "it still didn't work" as they only appear about the same height. Funny thing is Mel suggested she's 3" taller than him by claiming he's 5'10" and she's 6'1". Either way, like Sigourney herself, I'm sure she was a couple of inches taller than Mel. While I doubt Mel was quite as tall as 176 cm, I don't rule out the possibility so that would make 181 cm Sigourney's minimum.

Funny enough I used to hear she was at least 6 feet when I was a kid. Of course, I also used to hear that Arnold was 5'10" at a time he was still 6'1". Since the photo was taken half a decade ago, it's more probable she's now more 5'10" than 5'11". But women shrink more than men so a minimum 5'11" peak regardless.
Paddy said on 26/Jan/21
She is my height exactly, although I fluctuate from 180 1/2 cm to 178 cm which is weird.

Rob is that normal to fluctuate like that?
Editor Rob
If you were 180.5 in the morning and fell to 178cm at night, that wouldn't be abnormal.

Mimi said on 19/Oct/20
Rob don't you think she really has lost at least an inch by now? I mean Anjelica Huston already lost an inch and is 2 years younger than Sigourney. I think no matter how good Sigourney takes care of her body, the 1 inch height loss is inevitable at her age.
Editor Rob
by now, it could be getting likely 5ft 10 is what she might measure. A lot of celebs this year obviously not being photographed as much with others
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Oct/20
Right, she can pull off as 6'0" with Rob but certainly not 6'1".

Tall Sam said on 5/Oct/20
Yes, I would agree I see her as a possible 181 cm peak.
Almost 180cm guy said on 3/Oct/20
Sigourney was probably a 181 cm woman. Here are some of her photos alongside Kevin Kline from 1997: Click Here Click Here Click Here
She looked at least as tall in heels as Kline. I found a few photos of Sigourney with Winona Ryder from 1997: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Sigourney looked about 9 inches taller than Winona at the time. In 1997, Sigourney was only 48 so she couldn't lose anything yet. I also found two photos of Sigourney alongside Jeremy Irons from 1998: Click Here Click Here
The thickness of their shoes did not differ much from each other as you can see in the first photo. I would say 2.5 inches is a bit too much, the difference between them looked definitely smaller. Rob, do you think 5ft 11.25 might be better for her peak height?
Editor Rob
181 is a figure many estimate she could have measured. 5ft 11 to 11.25 could have been a range.
Mimi said on 30/Sep/20
I firmly believe she has lost at least an inch now and is around 178-177cm range now.
Mimi said on 3/Sep/20
During this photo moment Rob, how tall did you think she was ignoring the footwear?
Editor Rob
She could look closer to 6ft than 11 that moment!
Jtm said on 9/Jun/20
that's really bad news for mel gibson if she was under 5'11.
berta said on 6/Jun/20
rob what if she didnt have lost height when you meet her and she alwyas was 179, because they even said she was 179 in the above statement? but i agree that she was probablt atleast 180 cm peak.
Editor Rob
I think from 80's and 90's she really looked at least 5ft 11, I doubt she was under that peak.
Yas said on 30/May/20
She gives her height as 5'10.5 in an interview on youtube where she discusses working with Mel Gibson.
Logan Hedlund said on 26/May/20
I'm a fan of miss Weaver since Alien. I guess she's around 180cm.
@Rob, did you talked to her in that Film Con? Do you think that she might have lost less height, maybe less than a cm?
Editor Rob
I don't think Sigourney by early 60's had lost more than half inch. I didn't speak to her much unfortunately.
Mimi said on 15/Apr/20
So Rob is it appropriate for her to have her current height now at 5ft10?
Editor Rob
I'd need to look again at her last year.
Mimi said on 13/Apr/20
Rob don't you think 178cm is very possible right now?
Editor Rob
That period from 65 to 70 is one which many will lose a bit of height, so today she might be nearer 5ft 10 than 10.5
Mimi said on 12/Apr/20
I think she's 5ft10 flat now considering she's 70 and the average 70 year old woman loses around 2 inches of height. Even if she didn't lose that much height it is very probable she lost at least an inch now.
Mimi said on 11/Feb/20
Unfortunately we can't see their shoes but it's either Sigourney is 178cm flat at most now or she's sporting a lower heel.

Jtm said on 26/Dec/19
Maybe that was her morning height
Natty K said on 25/Dec/19
So the 2010 Edition of the Guinness Book of World Records has her listed at "6ft (182cm)" and 182cm is 5'11.645"

Being that this comes from the Guinness Book of Records, I think it's fair to go with that listing.
Nik Ashton said on 3/Nov/19
@ Rob - Has she got a long forehead?
Editor Rob
In person, I'd have said a bit longer than average
Josh Jeffords said on 28/Oct/19
Tall and lanky often looking a bit awkward but a lovely woman in her right.
She never looked 6ft but often taller than guys who claim it in her peak.
At her advanced age she is looking much shorter and fairly healthy.
She was "NOT" an inch shorter than Biehn in aliens and older then, often looked taller due to his posture.
Everybody but moranis wore boots in ghostbuster so why use it as any reference.
She was at least 5 11 likely over no idea on weight maybe 145-160, she is now around 5 10.
Mimi said on 21/Aug/19
Rob do you think Sigourney has lost an inch by now and is at 178cm range currently? Since she's turning 70 and the average woman lose about 1 inch at age 50 she's 20 years past that.
Editor Rob
That 65 to 70 zone is one in which many will lose a bit, so by now at 69 she could be heading to 5ft 10 flat.
Nik said on 31/Jul/19

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.

I agree!
Terry Salter said on 21/Jul/18
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.
Mimi said on 30/Apr/18
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

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.
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.

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.

At peak…

Out of bed: 182-183cm
Before bed: 180-181cm
The Expert said on 12/Aug/16
She looks 179cm , nothing more. At least a good 180cm... here the truth: Click Here
grizz said on 12/Aug/16
No,it's not. 5'11 is exactly 180.3 cm, so Rob's correct
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 right at 6' with shoes and have never and I mean never been called 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
Mike said on 18/Jul/16
More closer to 5ft 10, maybe 5ft 10.25.

Anon87 said on 14/Jul/16
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.
Shredder said on 10/Jul/16

One of my favorite actresses. Very tall, yes.

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.

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?"
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!
Ian C said on 30/Sep/15
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..

Weaver is 180cm. Nielsen is a possible 182cm. Weaver is tall alright. Taller barefoot than Mel Gibson in normal shoes/lifts; when on heels, visibly taller than legit 6ft1 Harrison Ford in 'Working girl'.

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.

miser said on 7/Nov/08
"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.

Movies are an entire thing althogether? What exactly is that supposed to mean?

"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!

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.

As for Brad Pitt, I think he is at least 180cm if not a bit more. But 180cm may be right:

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.
miser said on 31/Oct/08
"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?

And...? 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? Seriously. 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.

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.
miser said on 30/Oct/08
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.
C. said on 30/Oct/08
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.
miser said on 30/Oct/08
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.
C. said on 30/Oct/08
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!

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.

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

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.
