Elle Fanning may be the younger sister of Dakota Fanning, but she trumps her big sis in height, standing proud at 5’9″. Elle has really made a name for herself, with leading roles in “Maleficent” and “Super 8.” Her height has also opened another set of doors — modeling.
Fanning has had coveted brand deals with names like Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs. Since 2022, she’s been the face of the luxury perfume brand Paco Rabanne. Adding a few more centimeters to her height are the crown and period wigs she wears in her Hulu show, “The Great,” where she plays Catherine the Great (who, by the way, stood at a much shorter 5′ 2″.)
Brenda Strong - 6' (183 cm)
Brenda Strong is an actress best known for her roles in "Seinfeld" and "Twin Peaks." Although, perhaps her most recognizable role is one in which she was hardly seen. Strong played Mary Alice Young in the iconic series "Desperate Housewives."
If that character's name doesn't ring a bell, don't worry about it — while not recognized as a member of the main cast, she is the narrator of the series heard in every episode. Strong stands at an impressive 6' — a feature that undoubtedly factored into her being crowned Miss Arizona back in 1980.
Kim Wayans - 6' (183 cm)
The Wayans brothers have been Hollywood staples since the 90s. However, did you know there is also a famous Wayans sister? It's true! The family glory is not a testosterone-only thing. Kim Wayans is one of the ten Wayans siblings of showbiz royalty, and an accomplished actress in her own right.
Don't think Kim gets lost among the crowd just because she comes from a big family; she's 6' tall and full of talent. Wayans is best known for her role in "In Living Color" (a project written and produced by her brothers), and she was a writer on "My Wife and Kids."
Laila Ali - 5'10" (178 cm)
Most people don't know that the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, widely known as the best boxer of all time, had a beautiful daughter named Laila Ali. What even fewer people know is that by the young age of 18, she had already debuted as a talented and tough boxer.
Just like her father, Ali has shown great skills in the ring and has been undefeated for her entire eight years of boxing. With those specs, it's unsurprising to learn that Ali is a towering 5'10" tall. Although she has already retired from the sport, many consider her to be one of (if not) the best female boxers in history.
Christine Baranski - 5'10" (178 cm)
Similar to many actors and actresses alike, Christine studied at the respected Juilliard School. She has influenced the acting world with her formal and respectable appearance and voice. And dynamite doesn't always come in small packages — this leading lady is 5'10" tall!
Christine Baranski is a very talented actress and has used her talents both on stage and on screen. The two-time Tony winner has starred in the hit series "The Good Fight," and also appeared in the movie adaptation of "Mamma Mia," where she flaunted her triple-threat status as an actress, singer, and dancer! The beautiful Baranski is constantly working on new projects.
