Looks about right next to Cress Williams or John Henton in Living Single. Then again don't see footwear in the pics my guess 5'9 range strong 5'9 or weak 5'10 at absolute best

No way is Queen Latifah a similar height and build to Serena Williams!! Serena is 5'9 and actually looks tiny in comparison to Latifah, Serena has a much slimmer build and Latifah actually makes Serena not look as big and muscular as everyone thinks she is. She looks petite if anything lol

Is 5 ft 9.75 her height in high heels? She looks tall but then most females are 5 ft 2 range so if she was 5 ft 6 flat fet she would still be taller than most females and in heels she would be close to 5 ft 10 range. It's hard to measure a female Celebrities height because many include heels to their height where some don't.I have found websites where the models were showned being measured while in heels.One girl measured 5 ft 10 inches and the people commenting about her where over whelmed that she was 5 ft 10 not taking note that she was being measured while wearing 8 inch heels. So i will say Queen Latifah is 5 ft 6 inches flat feet and 5 ft 9.75 with heels on.

Seems about right, a bit shorter than Common in Just Wright. Looks a similar height and appearance to Serena Williams.

I think she's 5'9 at best.

The movies called "bringin down the house" Toni. And in case you may have forgotten, she was wearing high heels in just about every scene. And in barbershop she was not in high heels, and stood eye to eye with ice cube who is 5'8 with his 2 inch Afro. And considering its more realistic to measure the eyes, nose or or shoulders because peoples hair can be misleading, queen latifah may have been able to claim 5'6 for one movie, then claim 5'10 but flat footed be as tall as a man who struggles with 5'8. Im thinking she is a strong 5'8 if not 5'8.5

In this one movie with steve martin she said shes 5'6. Mabey it was just for the movie tho because she looked about as tall as martin.

175cm is nearer

In "Stranger Than Fiction" she doesn't dominate Emma Thompson like I thought she would and she looks appropriately shorter than Will Farrel (as she is wearing heels) for her to be @5'9"...Emma was depressive in the film and wore shorter heels than Latifah's business heels.

I've stood next to her when she is wearing sneakers and she is about 5'9.5".

nike shox gives one an extra 1.75 inches. I know, I got them and I measured!! :p

She's on the cover of the latest issue of People Style Watch. It listed her at 5'10. I also saw her (in heelS) on Conan and she was almost as tall as him. You should upgrade her height by at least a half inch.

i saw her at a store in toronto, she's beautiful, the nicest skin you will see and VERY tall, she was just wearing nike shox so maybe an extra inch and she was at least 5'10" - 5'11" i'm 5'8" and she was much taller than me. oh yeah and she's big but really in proportion so she looks good not fat or anything, and very cheerful.
dmeyer said on 25/Jun/07
to me she does look between 5'9 and 10 5'9.5 seems right

Latifah versus Glenn looks like Tom Cruise versus Glenn. Latifah and Cruise probably had the same size heels too
footballed28 said on 2/Mar/07
in that picture she is only slightly taller than Glenn...and she was wearing heels....I would give her 5'8 1/2 to be kind........and the reason she appeared taller than both Travolta and Al Gore is because she had on extremely high heels and both men are really no more than 6'0 or 6'1
glenn said on 1/Mar/07
thats strange that she apeared that tall.
talker said on 1/Mar/07
actually,at the oscars she looked even more than 6'1"because Travolta is 6' he was wearing shoes with at least an inch heels, and Latifa was taller than him.
The Rock said on 1/Mar/07
There's no way she's 5'8''. She looked insanely tall at Oscars this year. Taller than Al Gore and John Travolta. ~ 6'1'' in heels which is about 5'10'' barefoot. I doubt there are 5 inch heels that actually provide a 5 inch height boost.
talker said on 1/Mar/07
at the oscars this year,with high heels on she was same height with John Travolta.She looked huge.

holly crap!!!! i didn't think she was this tall!!!
glenn said on 28/Feb/07
she had heels on too.she might be 5-8.
Derek said on 24/Jan/07
She's around 5'8" or 9" and weighs 190.
Jordan said on 17/Nov/06
I think in "Bringing down the house" they actaully describe her at 5'7 and 175lbs which I think is wrong on both accounts. I'm pretty shore it was 5'7 but I'll have to check to make sure. Anyway I think she weighs over 175, but whatever.
dmeyer said on 1/Sep/06
in barber shop she looked taller than 173 cube even do she was barefeet
Anonymous said on 29/Aug/06
jimmy fallon is 6 ft possibly 6'1 so she's easily 5'10 because there was about two inch differential in taxi
said on 6/Jul/06
Like Glenn said, she is 5-8.
don said on 1/Apr/06
she was wearing 2 inch heels on the daily show, a good 5 inches taller then jon stewart 5'7 so 5'10 makes sense
Glenn said on 7/Mar/06
Correct.5-8 And Sweet.

Just met her at Urth Cafe in L.A. and she was 5'8" but no taller. I must add that she was amazing and kind and full of personality. She had the most beautiful skin!

In a Chicago Sun Times article from 2000 it starts off with describing her: "At 5-feet-9 3/4 inches (and none-of-your-business pounds)". Maybe the interviewer got this height from Latifah.

A May 1995 feature from Essence magazine: http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1264/is_n1_v26/ai_16848092
In the article, it states : 'the Queen stands five feet nine inches tall at 190 pounds.'
They're right. 5'9" is more like it.

She looked 6' next to Conan O'Brien.
