Cher Height

The only thing in the world you can change is yourself and that makes all the difference in the world.

Cher is not known as the 'Goddess of Pop' without a reason. She was one of the first women to dominate the music industry and has been doing so for six decades now.

Cher's height is something of an enigma because she looks short but isn't actually short. Most people have always believed that Cher is a small petite woman -- probably no more than 5'3" or so.

But if you look at Cher carefully, especially the younger Cher, you would realize that she is far taller than she looks even when she is not wearing those huge heels she is fond of.

In the movie Moonstruck, Cher looked quite tall with Nicholas Cage in flat footwear, she also looked taller than Meryl Streep, in Silkwood (though now Cher looks shorter than Meryl now).

Old magazines and newspapers used to list Cher's height as anywhere from 5'6" to all the way up to 5'9".

Though Cher herself said in an interview with Mike Douglas that she was a little above 5'7" (170 cm). After taking a careful look at Cher and comparing her height to a few other celebrities, we think that might have been correct in her prime but now in her mid-70s, Cher is a bit shorter than she used to be.

Height loss happens with age, mainly due to dehydration and curvature of the spinal discs.

The height of Cher in her prime was

5'6½" or 169 cm

Present height is

5'5" or 165 cm

Cher is one of a kind woman. Here are some of her memorable quotes which prove this:

Cher on men.

Men are a luxury, not a necessity.

Cher on shocking people.

I am the girl who everyone said was never going anywhere. I guess I shocked a few people.

Cher on advice.

I wouldn't give myself any advice, because advice is kinda bullshit. Take a deep breath and don't take any of it too seriously.

Cher on husbands.

Husbands are like fires - they go out when they're left unattended.

Cher on men again.

Men should be like Kleenex, soft, strong, and disposable.

Cher on her passion.

My passion lies with whatever I'm doing at the time... I only see what is in front of me.

Cher on what she really is.

I'm the female equivalent of a counterfeit $20 bill. Half of what you see is a pretty good reproduction, the rest is a fraud.

Cher on being ridiculous.

It's a dirty job being ridiculous, but I'll do it.

Cher on hate crimes.

Hate crimes are the scariest thing in the world because these people really believe what they're doing is right.

Cher on life.

Life is about enjoying yourself and having a good time.

Cher on taking over men.

Yes, it's a man's world, but that's all right because they're making a total mess of it. We're chipping away at their control, taking the parts we want. Some women think it's a difficult task, but it's not.

Cher on doing something different.

Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great.

Cher on what one can change.

The only thing in the world you can change is yourself and that makes all the difference in the world.

Cher on words.

Words are like weapons; they wound sometimes.

Cher on imagination.

All of us invent ourselves. Some of us just have more imagination than others.

Cher on dreams.

Everyone's got to have a dream... It's not reaching your dream that counts. It's going toward them.

Cher on what to take seriously and what to not.

If it doesn't matter in five years, it doesn't matter.

Cher on self-belief.

If you're waiting for someone to believe in you, you'll be waiting forever. You must believe in yourself.

Cher on really wanting something.

If you really want something you can figure out how to make it happen.

Cher on her ultimate fear.

I'm scared to death of being poor. It's like a fat girl who loses 500 pounds but is always fat inside. I grew up poor and will always feel poor inside. It's my pet paranoia.

Cher on men again.

I don't need a man. But I'm happier with one. I like to have someone I can touch and squeeze and kiss. But I don't fold up and die if I don't have a man around.
