Holly Hunter Height

People have always searched for answers. That's why we have religion; people have always been seeking some relief from their own mortality.

~ Holly Hunter

Famous actress, Holly Hunter is known for her performances in movies such as "The Piano", "Broadcast News", "The Firm", "Raising Arizona", "The Big Sick" and many others.

Holly Hunter's height is a matter of some interest because of how small she appears in her movies. Here is what she has to say about her size:

I'm too small and too short. I thought that was odd; that should be a non-issue to me.

IMDb lists Holly's height as 5 feet and 2 inches (157.5 cm).

From what we have seen of Holly, we think she can appear 5'2" tall but only in footwear -- barefoot no. Holly was always the shortest adult in her movies, even in heels barring of course Danny Devito (4'10" or 147 cm tall soaking wet).

 Like in the drama series "Saving Grace" Holly appeared to be about an inch shorter than Laura San Giacomo, who is 5'2" tall.

The height of Holly Hunter is

5'1" or 155 cm

Holly Hunter is an intelligent and spiritual person. Here are some of her great quotes:

Holly Hunter on privacy.

Privacy is paradise.

Holly Hunter on her love of wigs.

I love wearing wigs because they're instantly transformational.

Holly Hunter on what she believes and doesn't believe in.

I'm not religious. I'm not an atheist. Would I say I'm an agnostic? Possibly. But I would say the collective unconscious is something I'm much more interested in.

Holly Hunter on "Top of the Lake".

'Top Of The Lake' is a great story with a beginning, a middle and an end, about darkness - it's like the heart of darkness. And everybody has got one. When I was reading it, I couldn't put it down, and I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

Holly Hunter on her looks.

I'm not a classically beautiful person, but hopefully, it increases my longevity as an actress that my career isn't dependent on my great, great good looks.

Holly Hunter on her spirituality.

I would say, yeah, I'm a spiritual person.

Holly Hunter on trusting herself.

Do I trust myself? Sometimes I don't even know, but I can only just kind of throw my hat in the ring and hope for the best. Depending on how much I trust other people is how much freedom I can allow myself to have on that particular set.

Holly Hunter on art.

It's a fantastic mirror to us to engage with art, to engage with paintings that are about tragedy, to go see Shakespearean comedies, to read a Greek play... We have always investigated the lightness and darkness of the human soul, in all these forms. So why not do it on television?

Holly Hunter on Heaven and Hell.

Am I going to go to Heaven or Hell when I die? No. Is there going to be a second coming, and people are going to be stricken down? I find all that exclusionary.

Holly Hunter on if she believes in God.

Do I believe in God? I don't know what that really means. I don't know what my personal connections with G-o-d are. But spirituality is soulfulness.

Holly Hunter on her love of music.

I think that, initially, I was most passionate about music and particularly about playing the piano. I started playing when I was nine, and I was obsessed with it, really. I wouldn't even go spend the night at a friend's unless they had a piano. But I didn't have the chops, the extraordinary talent to be able to play the piano professionally.

Holly Hunter on what kind of people she loves to look at.

I love to look at physically beautiful people, and obviously, others do, too. But there's such a narrow definition of what that is; the people who are my friends in life, the more I get to know them over the years, the more beautiful they are to me.

Holly Hunter on what actors want.

Actors do movies because they want to make a connection; they want an audience to recognize themselves in what it is that you're depicting.

Holly Hunter on enjoying life.

In my real life, I see people who are really enjoying their lives - I mean, really enjoying their lives - and they take joy in their daily obligations; they just do. And I believe that at a certain point, you've got to choose to be that way. You choose to approach your life that way. Or it's all kind of a drag until Friday.

Holly Hunter on what kind of people she admires.

I really admire people who are extraordinarily tolerant and patient.

Holly Hunter on her work - acting.

I've enjoyed the process of understanding who I am through my work and who I am in relation to others: the intense collaboration that acting requires and thrives in.

Holly Hunter on how she acts.

I reveal all of myself. I bring all of myself to my roles. You only see me. You don't see anything else but me. That is who's there. They're manifestations of my own self.

Holly Hunter on creativity.

To me, being creative is a very fragile thing. The environment in which one can create is a very particular one, and somehow, I've always felt the need to be very protective of that.

Holly Hunter on her love of fiction.

I love fiction, you know? I find it fascinating. So when film really does go into fictional places, that's the most exciting for me. And when the fiction is about the person rather than about the place, that's even more exciting.

Holly Hunter on life.

The forcefulness of life is where vitality kind of intersects.

Holly Hunter on the question of higher energy.

Is there a higher energy? I would say yes, even if the energy is collective. Even if it's kind of Jungian, or the whole thing is collective consciousness, that may be God as far as I'm concerned. So is there an energy that's higher than mine? Yes. But would I claim it as God? I would say no.

Holly Hunter on the root of racism.

This is why we have racism, really: because people are confronting the unknown, and they don't like that.

Holly Hunter on what kind of person she is.

I guess I'm more of a direct person than an indirect one.

Holly Hunter on what is important to be creative.

The first and most important thing you need to be creative is to relax, particularly for the actors.

Holly Hunter on what God is not about.

The happiest person in the world has struggled. And none of us are perfect. And people can judge. There's so much judgment going on. And I just don't think that's what God's about.

Holly Hunter on how age changes people.

As we get older, people close down. We get less adaptive, less flexible - literally. Curiosity can diminish, and you want safety. You want what you know.

Holly Hunter on why she acts.

This is one of the reasons I like to act - it's because acting forces you into situations you don't know.

Holly Hunter on believing.

What does it mean to believe rather than to know? To surrender to something that's not a fact but faith?
