Famke Janssen Height

"I always feel like I want to do my career my own way. I never follow anybody's path, what they've done."

~ Famke Janssen

Famous actress, Famke Janssen is best known for her role of Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye and Jean Grey / Phoenix in the X-Men film series.

Famke is very tall.

In GoldenEye she stood shoulder to shoulder with a 6-feet-1 inch tall Pierce Brosnan and in the X-Men movie series, she hardly looked any shorter than a 6-feet-2 inches tall Hugh Jackman.

Finally, it took a 6-feet-4 inches tall man like Liam Neeson in the movie Taken to make Famke look average.

Anyway, Famke is listed as 5'11½" tall on her IMDb resume -- which we think perfectly suits her.

The height of Famke Janssen is

5'11½" or 182 cm
