Many guys like shorter girls because they tend to look taller when they are standing side by side. It is allegedly harder for women on the taller side to date thanks to this! The sad truth is that this is not the only downside to being vertically gifted. Unlike men, it is not always considered a good thing when you are female and have the gift of height. The ladies here can tell you all about what it is like to be of above average stature! We bet that you will stare at these real-life Amazonas when you come across them.
Too Close To The Roof
We do not know anything about her, but we have been able to figure out that she stands at 6’4” tall. The roof is just inches away from her head! Her friend only goes to show just how tall she is. If we assume that the woman on the right is of average height, the one on the left is a giant! At any rate, they must make a funny sight when they hang out with each other. We are sure that this girl is always the tallest woman wherever they are. It must not be easy, but her smile tells us a different story altogether.
Impossible To Miss
The gorgeous lady in the peach dress is among the tallest women in the United Kingdom and the entire world at a height of 6’3.” We are sure that she has no problems getting people to pay attention to her! After all, it is impossible to miss someone of that stature no matter where you are. There are many difficulties that she faces thanks to her size. For one thing, she probably has to squat a little to fit in the frame of photos. We are glad that her friend is more than willing to help her by choosing an angle that would get both of them. This is what true friendship looks like, ladies and gentlemen.
Just Shy Of Six Feet
There are three people in this photo, and they show us three different sizes: small, medium, and large! The woman on the right stands at 5’11.” It might be helpful to add some context here. This image was taken in Argentina. For women, the average height in the South American country is 5’3.” That only tells us that she towers over most people in the country. At her height, we bet that it is difficult to find someone taller than her to date. Who knows, it might not matter to her! If so, more power to her.
Height Is Just A Number
We will admit that we don’t know how tall she really is. But we have no problem figuring out that she is gigantic! She must be more than six feet tall based on how she is dwarfing this man in the photo. While there is a big height difference between them, they can overcome this issue with the strength of their love. We are glad that they did not let their clear differences get in the way of their budding romance. Just like age, height is also just a number. We wonder after whom their children will take after!
The Same Height As The Door
If you ask us, 6’4” sounds like a great height regardless of your gender and race. Just take a look at the stunning woman in the photo! She is nearly as tall as the door behind her. It must come in handy since she does not need a man to reach things in high places. We wonder if she is taking advantage of her height advantage. If we were in her shoes, we would probably play basketball or volleyball. We all know that height gives players an edge in these sports. She would make a great addition to any team.
A Tall German Woman
In the United States, the average woman stands at a height of 5’4”. This woman, at 6’5”, is an entire foot taller than that! She comes from Germany but towers over people from both sides of the pond. We are sure that she stands out from the crowd without even trying. After all, we doubt that it is easy to ignore someone who is that tall! Tall women and good sausages… it feels like Germany has it all!
As Tall As The Christmas Tree
The woman in the photo must have been wearing heels. She was already of above average height, so this only made her even taller. You can use the Christmas tree as your frame of reference here. She pretty much stands toe to toe with it. We wonder if she wished for a tall partner during that holiday season. Let us hope that Santa had been listening to her…
Leaning On The Rails
What an incredible photo! She must be the tallest person on our list, especially with those high heels on. This woman must be more than seven feet tall. It is pretty impressive that she can lean against the rails of this ship. We can’t help but wonder what they are eating in Russia that makes them grow this tall.
At A Height Of 6 Foot 5 Inches
Most people will agree that long legs are attractive. This photo, shot in Times Square, shows a young woman who towers over everyone in sight. If you ask us, she should have left those heels at home. There is plenty of walking to do in the Big Apple, so she should have worn more sensible shoes instead.
Despite Their Differences
They say that you are the average of the people that you spend the most time with. This is clearly not true when it comes to height! At any rate, you should not let physical features come between you and the people that you love the most. These two gal pals show us that it does not matter at all.
A Former Olympic Basketball Player
The woman in the photo is called Ekaterina Lisina. At 6’9”, it is a challenge for her to meet someone taller than her! Regardless of where she is, she tends to stand taller than everyone else. She now works as a model, but she used to be an Olympic basketball player. Her current job makes a lot of sense to us.
Legs For Days
Tall women get a lot of attention. We are sure that it can get uncomfortable when you are on your own. Look at the girl on the right, who is showing off her long legs in those shorts. It is amazing to see that her legs make up nearly three-fourths of the overall height of her friend. The contrast is quite jarring!
It Is Not Convenient
Good luck avoiding stares when you stand at more than 6’6”. Sadly, it is not always easy. For one thing, you are going to need to duck your head when you go through doors. You also need to mind your head at all times. You have no choice but to live like this since the world was not made for people of your size.
Hard To Hide
One woman stands out in this photo, and we are sure that you know who we are talking about. The tall lady is actually an Australian netball player! Even though her height is an asset in the sport, it comes with its own set of drawbacks. It must be difficult for her to avoid someone at a club or anywhere else.
Mirror Shots Do Not Work
This woman has another complaint about her height. Before we head out of the house, we tend to check how we look in the mirror. You want to check that you are at least presentable. This woman can’t do that without crouching! This is not that big of a problem, but it is still inconvenient and annoying.
The Brazilian Giant
How do you know if your friend is tall? A good way to tell is when the top of your head is at the same level as their waist. What a great photo! It just tells us that friendship does not care about physicality. After all, these two ladies are feet apart and remain good friends. That is all the proof that we need.
The Longest Legs In The Country
We doubt that your legs are as high as your lawnmower. This is the case for a woman by the name of Holly Burt. She stands at 6’5”, which means that she is almost always the tallest woman in the room. Did you know that Times magazine claimed that she has “the longest legs in America”? Good for her!
When They Take The Elevator
When you stand at a height of 6’6”, you probably hate the thought of riding an elevator. You need more space than most folks, so cramped places are even more annoying than usual. Can you imagine how annoying it must be? After thinking about it long and hard, we are glad that we are not in her shoes.
Already Kneeling Down
You might not think that a very tall person would be friends with a very short person. These two gals are here to prove you wrong! The one on the right was kneeling down, but she was still somehow taller than her small friend. This might be an article on tall women, but we can’t help but wonder how short she is!
Taller Than Seven Feet
Basketball players are typically taller than the rest of the population, but they are dwarfed by this Polish woman. At 7’2”, Margo Dydek is pretty much a giant in real life! It should come as no surprise that she is a model and WNBA player. She might be a fierce defender on the court, but she also has a heart of gold.
Tall Woman And Short Man
The woman in this photo stands at a height of 6’2”. We are sure that her partner is more than willing to follow her orders in the kitchen. As a matter of fact, we bet that he tends to obey her no matter where in the house they are. He does not seem to mind, however. Just look at that adoring look on his face.
Security Is Not Necessary
This is another case of polar opposites. This woman must be 6’5” or 6’4”, but she might be as tall as 6’9”. What we know for sure is that there is a world of a difference between her and the security woman in the photo. Isn’t it neat to think that we are all made up of the same thing but still end up so different?
Showing Off Their Long Legs
The lovely ladies on this list all have legs for days! It must be amazing to see them in real life. These ladies decided to show off what their mommas gave them by slipping on boots. You know what they say: if you got it, flaunt it! We are glad that they are taking pride in the things that make them so unique.
Too Small For Her
As you can see, she has to duck her head before she can go through this entryway. We wonder if it would be easier without those heels! Maybe that was what was going through her mind when she had to bow a little to pass through this doorway. It must be hard to live in a world that does not cater to you.
Mexicans Are Not Always Short
The truth is that Mexicans are typically on the shorter side, but this does not mean that every single person from the country is short. Take this woman for example. She stands at six feet tall and embraces her unique height! She looks amazing in her red dress, which does a good job of flaunting her legs.
Her Giant Lifestyle
There is an old American saying that goes, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Krista here is a popular figure in Los Angeles. She was on a show called My Giant Life thanks to her 6’6” stature. You can probably tell that this is not typical of women in the United States or anywhere else on the planet for that matter.
All Eyes On Her
The waterfall in this photo is pretty, and it would definitely steal the spotlight on most occasions. But it is very hard to ignore the tall gal in the photo! If you were wondering how tall she is, the answer to that question is 6’3”. She is not wearing heels and instead chose to put on something better suited for hiking.
Far From Average
You should befriend tall people because they offer a lot of benefits. For one thing, they can reach items on high shelves for you! Aside from that, they can offer you some shade when the sun is out to play as well. At 6’4”, the woman on the right is a whole foot taller than the average woman in the United States.
Taking A Peek
Heels make us taller, so we daresay that this woman could have done without those red stilettos. She must be 6’7” or 6’8” already! If this were the case, she is definitely near the top of our list. However, she was several inches away from beating the record holder. Let us remind you that Ekaterina Lisina is 6’9”.
A True Standout
It can be confusing when you stand with someone who is much shorter or taller than you. Check out this photo of Lindsay Taylor and a fan. It is hard to believe that this is not edited, but we promise you that it is not. She stands at 6’8”, which makes her one of the tallest people to ever play in the WNBA. She has since retired from the sport and tried her hand at other careers. Let us hope that she finds her true calling in life!
If there’s one thing that this list had told us, it’s the fact that despite the obvious advantages of being tall, it also comes with a lot of disadvantages as well, which leads us to our next question: Who exactly are the tallest women in Hollywood? Well, you don’t have to look any further as we got you covered! Keep reading to find out exactly who the tallest celebrity women in Hollywood are!
Khloé Kardashian – 5’10”
The Kardashian sisters have all carved out successful careers in Hollywood, and each of them stands out for different reasons. At five-foot-one, Kourtney is the shortest of the group, while Kim isn’t much taller at five-foot-three. Khloé stands taller than the rest of the family at five feet ten inches, but she also stands out due to her talk show and other business and social media ventures.
Mandy Moore – 5’10”
Mandy Moore has made a name for herself as an actress in addition to being a chart-topping musician. Her five million album sales and roles in films such as… the comedy “The Princess Diaries” and the animated film “Tangled” have earned her a large following around the world. Mandy is currently filming the lead role in the comedy-drama ‘This Is Us,’ in which she is even taller than her on-screen husband, Milo Ventimiglia.
Jordin Sparks – 5’10”
Winning the reality show ‘American Idol’ is one thing. It’s quite another to become the youngest person to ever win the award. Jordin knows how it feels because she won the show when she was just 17 years old in 2007. Since then, Jordin has continued to work on her music and has sold millions of singles and albums. Jordin has mingled with some of the best in the business during her time at the top, and at five-foot-ten-inches tall, she towered over them.
Sigourney Weaver – 6’0”
It can be difficult to have your name go down in history for all the right reasons, but Sigourney Weaver appears to have figured out the formula because she has been at the top of Hollywood for a long time. Many people know her as Ripley from the sci-fi film franchise “Alien.” Sigourney has, however, appeared in a number of films, including the comedy ‘Ghostbusters,’ the science fiction film ‘Avatar,’ and the horror-comedy ‘The Cabin in the Woods.’ As if all of that wasn’t impressive enough, Sigourney has also appeared on Broadway.
Allison Janney – 6’0”
Allison Janney is much more than a well-known actress. Her Golden Globe Award, BAFTA Award, Academy Award, and no less than seven Primetime Emmy Awards make her one of the most decorated actresses in the industry. Allison earned a place in many people’s hearts as one of the most beloved characters on American television during her time on the political drama series “The West Wing.” As if that wasn’t enough, Allison is six feet tall and towers over the rest of the crowd.
Brooke Shields – 6’0”
Brooke Shields’ height of six feet made it easy for her to stand out from the crowd when she first entered the modeling industry. Brooke began modeling when she was just 11 months old, believe it or not. It was only the beginning for the actress, who went on to have a successful career on the big screen as well. Brooke was the youngest person to ever appear on the cover of Vogue when she was 14 years old. Brooke’s controversial Calvin Klein ad in 1980 catapulted the designer to superstardom as if that wasn’t enough.
Elizabeth Debicki – 6’2”
After appearing in the comedy “A Few Best Men,” Elizabeth Debicki made her feature film debut in 2011. However, the Australian actress didn’t have to wait long to land a memorable role in the romantic drama film “The Great Gatsby.” Elizabeth shone – and stood – above the rest, winning the hearts of the nation. Elizabeth is two inches taller than her co-star in the film, Leonardo DiCaprio, who is only six feet tall.
Blake Lively – 5’10”
You’re not alone if you think Blake Lively is one of Hollywood’s most beautiful women. Many of us were drawn to the actress after seeing her on the teen drama “Gossip Girl,” where she quickly settled into her Upper East Side role. Blake’s acting career has continued to grow since then, and she is now joined by her husband, Ryan Reynolds. Blake, at five-foot-ten-inches tall, is taller than most, even though she isn’t quite as tall as her husband.
Liv Tyler – 5’10”
Liv Tyler is best known as the daughter of Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler. Liv, on the other hand, didn’t take long to break out and carve out a niche for herself. That’s right, Liv has experience in acting, modeling, producing, and singing. One of the star’s most well-known roles was as Arwen Undómiel in the fantasy film trilogy “The Lord of the Rings.” Liv is a big supporter of UNICEF and does a lot of charity work when she’s not working on the big screen.
Charlize Theron – 5’10”
Charlize Theron is an impressive five-foot-ten-inches tall – and that’s before she slips into a pair of heels. Not only has she been able to star in some of the most memorable and loved productions of all time, but she is also an impressive five-foot-ten-inches tall – and that’s before she slips into a pair of heels. Because of her charity work and activism, Charlie was named one of the top 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2016. Charlize Theron is still one of the highest-paid actresses in 2019.
Tyra Banks – 5’11”
When you get to shape the future of modeling and help influence some of the next generations of models, you know you’ve probably made it. Tyra Banks appears to have it all when it comes to her professional life. She began modeling at the age of 15 years old. Tyra Banks, on the other hand, went on to create and host the reality competition show “America’s Next Top Model,” as well as a number of spin-offs around the world. Tyra doesn’t seem to mind that she won’t be able to join the six-foot club.
Ava Michelle – 6’1”
It’s no surprise that Ava Michelle, who stands at a towering six-foot-one-inch, was cast as the leading lady in the Netflix comedy film “Tall Girl.” People used to tease the actress because of her height, she admits. Thankfully, she has since learned to appreciate her stature and use it to her advantage. Ava was previously one of the stars of the reality show ‘Dance Moms,’ so she was no stranger to fame.
Missi Pyle – 5’11”
Missi Pyle is well-known for her roles in a number of popular television shows and films. Missi’s success in Hollywood was aided by the musical “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” the comedy-drama “The Artist,” and the thriller “Gone Girl.” Missi has appeared in sitcoms such as “2 Broke Girls,” “My Name Is Earl,” and “Friends” on the small screen. What’s the best part? Missi is also a member of Smith and Pyle, a country-rock band that includes fellow actress Shawnee Smith.
Uma Thurman – 6’0”
It’s difficult to think of a more iconic actress than Uma Thurman. Most of us are familiar with her name, and many of us have been smitten by her screen presence. Uma has starred in many of Quentin Tarantino’s films and has worked closely with him over the years. Uma has also appeared in films such as the horror film “The House That Jack Built” and the musical comedy “The Producers.” It appears that Uma Hawke’s height has been passed down to her daughter, Maya Hawke.
Brigitte Nielsen – 6’1”
When most of us think of models, one of the first things that come to mind is how tall they are. Perhaps it’s no surprise that Brigitte Nielsen, a former model, stands six feet one inch tall? Brigitte began her modeling career at the turn of the century. This was only the beginning, as she quickly progressed to a career on the big screen. Before their divorce in 1987, Brigitte was married to Sylvester Stallone, with whom she co-starred in the action films “Cobra” and “Rocky IV.”
Jane Lynch – 6’0”
Jane Lynch is best known for her role as Coach Sylvester in the hit musical television series “Glee.” Coach used her strong personality and quick retorts to whip everyone into shape, but her height also helped her stay on top. Jane has made the most of her height over the years, landing a variety of roles as a result. Her most well-known roles include those in the comedies “Talladega Nights” and “Role Models,” as well as the animated film “Wreck-It Ralph.”
Gisele Bündchen – 5’11”
Many of us have seen Gisele Bündchen – whether we recognize her or not – as a result of her impressive modeling career. Throughout her career, the international supermodel has collaborated with designers such as Dolce and Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, and Christian Dior. Gisele became one of the most sought-after models in the world in no time. She went on to become one of the highest-paid models of all time, as well as one of the wealthiest women in the entertainment industry and one of Forbes’ Most Powerful Women in the World.
Saffron Burrows – 6’0”
It can be difficult for actors to distinguish themselves from one another. For some, however, standing at six feet tall is sufficient. Saffron Burrows is one of the few people who has found a way to make the most of her height. Surprisingly, Saffron was discovered around the same time as Naomi Campbell, who went on to pursue a career in acting rather than modeling. Saffron has played several memorable roles over the years, including in the action film “Deep Blue Sea.”
Nicole Kidman – 5’11”
Talented actress? Check. Married to a country music legend? Check. A handful of incredible houses all around the world? Check. Nicole Kidman appears to have it all, including her towering stature. The actress has appeared in films such as ‘Batman Returns,’ a superhero film, and ‘Moulin Rouge!,’ a musical drama. Nicole enjoys spending time with her husband, Keith Urban, when she is not on our screens. Keith is only one inch shorter than his wife, but Nicole towers over him due to her high heels.
Gal Gadot – 5’9”
Gal Gadot didn’t always intend to make it in Hollywood, it turns out. Before becoming a model and pageant contestant, the actress served in the Israel Defense Forces. That was all before she made it big in Hollywood. Is there anything Gal hasn’t accomplished yet? Gal is now known for her role as Wonder Woman. Gal is not only Princess of the Amazons by name, but she is also a towering five-foot-nine-inch tall woman.
