Oh yes! I remember her as the tall woman who gets down to 'things' with Johnny Depp in 'The Ninth Gate'! The 5ft9.25 is totally believable, so that's what she gets.
I never knew she was Swedish!

Seems more like 5'9" to 5'10" not 5'11" standing next to her husband who is 6'

Rob this woman is simply not 5'10". I've just been searching through Getty and there is not a single picture I can see where she could be verified at this height. Next to 6ft golfer Jesper Parnevik is pretty damning. We know the reliability of sportsman's heights. Also next to her 6ft husband, director Lasse Hallstrí¶m. This picture is ridiculous: Click Here
Anon's comment below is right on the money. It is a myth. I think the myth started over this picture. As for Rufus's comment, well, she simply must have been in heels or lifts when you saw them together, in order to emphasise the power in her role in Alias.
[Editor Rob: maybe nearer 5ft 9 is a better guess.]

She's much taller than Jennifer Garner. She has to be at least 5'11".

See her standing next to Juliette Binoche in "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." Juliette is 5'6" and Lena is not more than a couple of inches taller, which would make her 5'8" at the age of 33. This whole 5'10"/5'11" thing is just a myth.

yes but in the my pic shes on heels too just like sienna look closely.

In your photo Lena looks to be at a significant shoe disadvantage.
[Editor Rob: true, but there is a point with jennifer garner maybe I give her too much. Actually there's a photo series where she's in orange slippers with sienna miller who is sitting 2.7 inches in her heels and lena does have a good 2 inches over her...]

She is 5'11" because with 4" heels she is as tall as Victor Garber

Fredrik showed this link where an interview gives her height as 173cm...

Wow, this one really surprised me!
I've admired her stunningly beautiful face for as long as I can remember, but very rarely seen her in a full-body shot.
She's always seemed very short to me, because of this. I would've guessed 5'2"-5'4". But seeing pics of her next to other celebs, she does seem to be that tall.
And that pic phillyflash posted, assuming the heights are accurate, would indeed indicate that she's 5'10" or just above. Her head seems to reach the 6' mark, but that's an illusion of perspective.

Check her out in the Vampire Lestat movie. The sequel to interview...she looks towering there. There's over a foot difference between her and the female lead (probably due to heels but still). I've seen a mug shot of her where she stands over 5'11.
[Editor Rob: I don't think she's quite 5ft 11 these days, but certainly was in the 181cm range for most of her career. Maybe nowadays I think 179cm actually might be more accurate...]
