18. Gal Gadot- She stands tall at 5’10”. She was born and raised in Israel. At just
eighteen years old she was crowned Miss Israel 2004 and then served two years in the Israel
Defense Forces as a combat instructor. Her first film role was the Fast and the Furious
franchise. Then came her big break, She was cast as Wonder Woman in the new film that
came out in 2017. She was also in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016 as well.
And the ensemble of Wonder Woman, Justice League in 2017. She stands beautifully at
five foot ten inches tall. She is very popular now due to her being the new Wonder Woman,
and that has put her on the map and is working on more projects to come.
17. Julia Roberts- She is five foot ten. When you think of Julia Roberts, you most likely
think of her as the charming Hollywood hooker Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman. On the cover
of the DVD the shows, Julia decked out in giant chunky black boots with large heels.
That could be a reason why people think shes tall, but did you have any clue just how tall
she really is? Or did you assume she was as tall as any other person you know? In all
the other films she has done her height is never really highlighted as it is in Pretty
Woman, even though she measures at an astounding five foot ten inches. Julia Roberts has been
considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and has been around for some
time but who knew she was one of the tallest too!
16. Mandy Moore- She started charming us all the way back in 2002 for her beautiful role
as the dying Jamie Sullivan in A Walk to Remember since then she has stayed in the minds of
fans as one of Hollywood’s most beautiful stars and also sporting a fantastic voice
too! If that isn’t enough, Mandy Moore was also blessed with height, standing at five
foot ten inches tall. Thinking of Moore as the sweet and seemingly small Jamie Sullivan,
it’s hard to accept just how tall she really is! Her newest project is starring in the
show This is Us, where she portrays the complex character of Rebecca Pearson, and we are way
too distracted by the depth and quality of the show to even pay attention to the actress’s
height. And whatever her height is we’re just glad to see her back on the screen charming
us with her talent and beauty as always.
15. Zendaya- It comes as quite the surprise when we find out that some of our favorite
child stars are way taller than us! This is definitely the case when we learn that the
Disney star and now very successful singer Zendaya stands at 5 foot 10 inches tall. She
is only twenty-one years old. It’s not really possible to look at Zendaya and not wonder
about a few things like her height and what racial cocktail is she? She is tall and has
a slender, athletic frame that makes her look even taller.
14. Laura Dern- This talented beauty has starred in some of Hollywood’s biggest and best
box office films, including Wild, Mask, Rambling Rose, Jurassic Park, and Star Wars The Last
Jedi. Laura is currently fifty years old and has remained stunning and ageless. Here’s
where it gets surprising, on top of her being an Academy Award-winner, Laura Dern has also
been blessed with the gift of height, she stands at 5 foot 10 inches. I’m sure you
can see a pattern happening here, not only are these beautiful actresses just beautiful
as well as talented and successful, but they are also all extremely tall and leggy. The
theory that the world of Hollywood has a different standard for height than the rest of us in
the boring regular world continues to ring true.
13. Lucy Lawless- We all know the beautiful Lucy Lawless for her incredible portrayal
of the protagonist in the TV show Xena Warrior Princess, and for playing number three in
the Battlestar Galactica franchise, and also for her role in the three Spartacus television
series. Because of the types of movies, Lucy has traditionally starred in, such as science
fiction, action, and fantasy, she often stands as a sort of overpowering and mystical figure.
But did you know how overpowering she really is! She stands tall at 5 foot 10 inches. Lucy
Lawless has the perfect body type for portraying an untouchable female hero in some of Hollywood’s
best film and television fantasy films. Clearly, Lucy’s New Zealand roots show quite clearly
with her distinct accent, impressive height, and striking features!
12. Laura Prepon- Is it just us or did you always just think that Laura Prepon’s co-stars
were below average in height? This was definitely the case in That 70s Show when Laura looked
pretty tall as Donna next to her co-star Eric Forman, who was always portrayed as a petite
sort of guy. Maybe it’s for this reason that we never realized just how tall the actress
actually is! She stands at 5 foot 10 inches tall. It seems like her height continues to
be swept under the rug because of how tall her co-stars are in Orange is the New Black.
Once again, the Hollywood standard of height continues to fool us about how tall some of
our favorite actresses are.
11. Uma Thurman- She is an American actress best known for her roles in movies such as
Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Beautiful Girls, Batman & Robin, and The Truth about Cats and
Dogs. In 2003 she mentioned her tall stature to Time Magazine, saying, “I’m like 5ft
11.” She might, in fact, be rounding down her height by a fraction, because she once
said before in a Howard Stern interview she “Five Eleven and a bit.”
10. Aisha Tyler- This beautiful actress has won the hearts of many fans for playing Andrea
Marino in Ghost Whisperer, as well as being the voice of Lana Kane in Archer. She stands
tall at 5 foot 11 inches, and as always we probably wouldn’t know this given Hollywood’s
standards. And also one of the shows that she is most famous for, Archer, mainly only
highlights her voice not her stature. For Tyler, being tall wasn’t always a gift as
it might seem now. She admitted in an interview with the New York Daily News back in 2013
that she felt set apart and not accepted because she was one of the only black students in
her private school she attended when she was younger, but she also was almost twice as
tall as some of the other kids, even as early as the third grade.
9. Nicole Kidman- A shorter actress may not have made a good match for Hugh Jackman in
the movie Australia because Hugh is 6 foot 2 ½ inches. But she stands at 5 foot 11 inches.
Nicole is most famous for her roles in The Hours, Birth, Far and Away, Practical Magic,
Bewitched and many others.
8. Famke Janssen (FAUMKA JANSEN)- We’re sure you knew that Famke Janssen starred in
the X-Men franchise and the Taken franchise, as well as ABC’s favorite tv show, How To
Get Away With Murder and the Netflix original Hemlock Grove. But did you have any idea that
she is of Dutch descent? In 1964 Janssen was born in the Netherlands. This explains her
impressive height and exotic features. She stands at an imposing 5 foot 11 inches.
7. Karen Gillan- Karen is a Scottish actress, director, and screenwriter who first rose
to prominence as a model in New York City while she was attending acting school at the
Academy of Theatre Arts. Her height seems like an obvious requirement to pursue such
a career, even though her real dream from the very beginning was to be an actress instead
of a model. Karen Gillan stands at 5 foot 11 inches, despite that she began as a model,
is still surprising just because of how tall she really is. When you just look at her upper
torso and head, she seems like she would have a petite frame but that’s not the case.
Who knew that this Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Who star was so tall?
6. Sigourney Weaver (SIGORNEY) She is six foot tall, and arguably one of Hollywood’s
best actresses. You probably recognize her from classics like the Alien franchise, Annie
Hall, the Ghostbusters franchise, Working Girl, and Avatar. But what sets her apart
from others is her height. She stands at an impressive six feet tall, and is one of Hollywood’s
5. Jane Lynch- Of course, we all know Jane Lynch is tall, but maybe you didn’t realize
she is six feet tall! In the famous show Glee, where she plays Sue Sylvester we always just
thought she was tall because she is always standing next to teenagers in the show, or
because she was co-starring next to Matthew Morrison, who is petite and little. But in
real life Jane is just as tall as she seems in the tv show, standing at a whopping six
feet tall. For Jane, her height has never held her back, and she has managed to build
a good reputation for her height. Her height has helped her gain authoritative roles. Jane
Lynch said in an interview that her height had been a big part of the reason for landing
so many roles. Instead of letting her height set her back she embraces it and uses it to
4. Geena Davis- Geena Davis has starred in the cult classic Beetlejuice and the Academy
award-winning movie Thelma and Louise, and she herself won several awards including an
Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Along with acting, Geena is a very talented writer and
producer, but before she started acting she was a successful model too! The fact that
she started off her career as a model shouldn’t be shocking when we find out that the actress
is an impressive 6 feet tall. She has an athletic build that not only helped her in her modeling
career but it most likely played a big part in introducing her to competitive sports.
She is now 41 years old and has picked up archery. She reached Olympian level really
3. Allison Janney- Allison Janney has starred in an impressive number of films ranging from
Academy award-winning classics to animated films to favorite romantic comedies. Because
of her slim build, it’s hard to tell until she measures up next to shorter actors and
actresses just how tall she really is at six feet! The only time you can really tell how
tall she is is when she stands next to shorter co-stars like Ellen Page who is 5 foot 1 inch
or the 5 foot 4 inches tall Anna Faris for their CBS sitcom Mom. For Allison she recognizes
both the disadvantages and advantages of being so tall, she admitted that it had stopped
her from getting some roles but also has helped her land older more authoritative roles, which
2. Elizabeth Debicki- The stunning Australian-Polish Elizabeth Debicki is a new addition to Hollywood’s
A-list since just 2011. she measures up to a remarkable six feet two inches. That means
that in heels she could be as tall as 6 foot 5 inches! For Elizabeth, her height hasn’t
totally restricted her yet, because she’s portrayed characters that have not been required
to be tall, such as Jordan Baker in the 2013 interpretation of The Great Gatsby. Even so,
she has admitted in an interview in 2016 with The Independent that her height used to bother
her, especially as a teenager because all she wanted to do was fit in. But as you get
older, you start to appreciate the things that make you stand out from the rest. Now
it seems as she has embraced her height and it hasn’t seemed to prevent her from landing
1. Gwendoline Christie- She is an English actress and model who you can currently see
starring in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. She was born on October 28th, 1978, that makes
her 39 right now. She stands as the tallest actress here and she’s remarkably tall at
6 ft 3 in. If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, her height won’t be much of a surprise for
you. She plays the fearless warrior Brienne of Tarth. Her height can still be shocking
in person even without her coat of armor that she wears on the show. Since the show premiered
in 2011, it has won more Emmy Awards than any other scripted series in history. The
show has twenty three million viewers on average who watch each episode and come to watch all
the incredible characters. When she was young, she trained as a gymnast, but after a spine
injury she was forced to quit that career and decided to take up acting. She’s had
good luck so far appearing in films, theatre, and on TV. She has been in two Star Wars films
and played Commander Lyme in the final movie in the Hunger Games series: The Hunger Games:
Mockingjay Part two.
