She was definitely 173 when she was younger, may have lost a couple of cm now as she is after all 66. She never wears more than 4 in heels without platforms and still she looks tall next to most actors and even actresses with big platform shoes. Jessica is tall but not towering like Sigourney etc.

She's shorter than sarah Paulsen I'd say 5 foot 5

I can see 5'8 peak being possible even though I was always under the impression that she was 5'7 when seeing Tootsie and King Kong. FYI I used to have a crush on her when I first saw King Kong.
When in her 20s and 30s she was hotter than other women her age. Even in her 60s she still hotter than other women her age. Even though, according to rumors, she's had a face lift she appears to be holding up well for her age wouldn't you agree, Rob?

She looked noticeably taller than Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie and not much shorter than De Niro in Cape Fear. I can't see her as low as 5 ft 6 peak Brad. She looked a 5'7" er peak to me.

5' 6", same height as a 5' 7.5" Wahlberg in heels to built up lifts.

Thanks for responding to my questions rob. This is an awesome site, and I have great respect for your work on here.

Hey Rob, why do you list her as 5'8 when all the other websites list her as 5'7?
[Editor Rob: well I've not looked at her for years, at 64 she does look more 5ft 7.]

In some parts of Tootsie she looks around 1.5 taller than Hoffman, at other times (when both are wearing heels I think) they do look confusingly similar in height.

She's no more than five six. In Tootsie, Dustin Hoffman was about her height. Watch the last scene where they walk away together. She's wearing boots with what appear to be no more than two inch heels. Hoffmann is wearing tennis shoes. She looks about an inch taller.

She doesn't look 5'8'' in Cape Fear next to De Niro, she's pretty tall lady though.

She stood a few feet away from me a few years ago. She looked about 5'6" or 5'6 1/2" and about 110 lbs.
