Celebrities come in all shapes and sizes. And although the average American woman measures 5’4”, Hollywood boasts plenty of stars who tower above this figure. Here, as proof of the point, are 20 super-tall famous women who probably find shopping for the red carpet a real nightmare.
20. Aisha Tyler – 6’
Ghost Whisperer, Criminal Minds and The Santa Clause star Aisha Tyler stands at 6’ and has always been on the tall side. In 2014 she told KPCC that she has been a “giant from a very young age.” But the actress doesn’t appear to have any qualms about taking roles seemingly tailor-made for lofty ladies – even if she isn’t actually appearing on screen. In 2016, for example, she voiced Lana Kane in Archer, the female agent renowned for being super-tall.
19. Brooke Shields – 6’
While most actresses would be happy enough with a height of 6’, Brooke Shields often tries to make herself look even taller. The Endless Love and Blue Lagoon star once told Entertainment Tonight that she regularly wears the highest high heels possible because of how happy they make her feel.
