Jane Lynch Height

"But now that I've matured, I've realized that - at the end of the day - what's really important is the work, not what people think of me."

~ Jane Lynch

American actress and comedian, Jane Lynch has appeared in many movies but perhaps she is best known for her portrayal of Sue Sylvester in the Fox musical comedy series Glee.

Jane Lynch is a tall cookie. She is one of the tallest actresses in Hollywood, along with Geena Davis (6"), Uma Thurman (5'11¼"), Nicole Kidman (5'10½"), and a few others.

Jane once mentioned her height as six feet, and what is more -- she looks like it.

In the movie Role Models, she towered over everyone... including all the men. In The 40 Year Old Virgin, she looked even taller than a 5-feet-11 inches tall Seth Rogen.

From what we have seen of Jane, we think she comfortably touches the six feet mark. Though now in her early sixties, it seems she has lost some height -- taller people so lose height faster than shorter ones, and females seem even more susceptible to it.

The height of Jane Lynch is

5'11" or 182 cm

Height in her prime was 6" or 183 cm

"One of the few advantages to not being beautiful is that one usually gets better-looking as one gets older; I am, in fact, at this very moment, gaining my looks."
