The leading women in Hollywood come in all shapes and sizes. The average American woman is only 5’4 and many actresses are that same height or shorter, but not all of them.
Some actresses are taller than most and have found it can be both a good and bad thing. Many have openly admitted to struggling with everything from confidence, to refusing to wear high heels, and even finding clothes that fit. Others have loved their extra-long figures since they were kids and used it to their advantage. One of your favorite royals topped the list! Read on to see which ladies in the limelight tower over everyone else on the red carpet.
Gwendoline Christie — 6’3
The Game of Thrones and Star Wars leading lady had made a career out of her height. At a staggering 6’3, Christie plays up her height in her roles. In Game of Thrones, she plays Brienne of Tarth, a monstrous soldier who can fight with the best of them. In Star Wars, she’s a certified general.
Christie wasn’t always confident with her height. She says that as a child, she felt “alienated from the rest of society.”
