When it comes to figuring out which of your favorite celebrities would tower over you in real life, there’s one big clue. If they spend their time strutting down the runway or posing for swimwear ads, chances are they’re clocking in at 5 feet, 9 inches or higher — like models Ashley Graham, Tyra Banks, and more. But some of these other long-legged A-listers just might surprise you. While Kim Kardashian is famously only 5 feet, 3 inches tall, a few other Kardashian sisters have made this list of tall celebrities. And did you know that former First Lady Michelle Obama measures in at supermodel height too?!
We can’t deny it. We’re ever-so-slightly jealous of these women who can reach any shelf they want and command attention just by walking in. But at the same time, tall women in Hollywood have had to deal with ridiculous bias, like 6-foot-tall Sigourney Weaver admitting she was never considered for romantic roles because of her height.
“I’m a weird duck, because I was never a ‘girlfriend’. I was always too tall to be the girlfriend,” Weaver told The Guardian in 2016. Because the 5 feet, 9 inches (and up) Blake Lively, Gigi Hadid, and Heidi Klum definitely were too scary and tall to have boyfriends growing up, right?
Questionable casting aside, if you belong to the worldwide community of tall ladies and are wondering which stars can say the same, we have you covered. Here are 54 fierce female celebs who are at or over 5 feet, 9 inches tall and proud of it.
