About Julie Andrews' Height

With time Julie Andrews has lost some height and looks shorter than she used to -- which is no surprise since Julie is now close to her 90s. Height loss happens mainly due to dehydration and compression of the spinal discs.

But Julie used to be a tall and statuesque lady – especially for her time. In 1955 when Julie would have been 5 feet 7 inches tall or so the average height of American men wasn’t more than 5’8”.

Her height listed on most websites on the internet is 5’7” and from what we have seen of her, like with a 5 feet 9½ inches tall Paul Newman, we think she looked like it. So by today’s equivalent Julie would be at least 5 feet 8 inches tall.

The height of Julie Andrews in her prime was

5 ft 7 in (170 cm)

Julie Andrews has a great mind, as evident by her quotes like these

When one door closes...

When one door closes, another window opens.

On feeding the soul.

Feed the body food and drink, it will survive today. Feed the soul art and music, it will live forever.

On making the world a better place.

Leave every place you go, everything you touch, a little better for your having been there.

On helping others.

Use your knowledge, and your heart, to stand up for those who can't stand, speak for those who can't speak, be a beacon of light for those whose lives have become dark.

Julie's advice on work.

If you're passionate about what you do, then go for it wholeheartedly. Be prepared for that if anytime, you may be surprised by a phenomenal opportunity that may come your way, and that's when I say, do your homework. Be ready.

Kind world.

Be a part of all that is decent and be an ambassador for the kind of world that you want to live in.

On discipline.

Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me, it is a kind of order that sets me free to fly.

Be ready.

Sometimes opportunities float right past your nose. Work hard, apply yourself, and be ready. When an opportunity comes you can grab it.

When in doubt...

When in doubt, stand still.

The difference between amateur and professional.

The amateur works until they get something right. The professional works until they can't go wrong.

On adversity.

When adversity hits, go out and learn something.

On beginings.

Beginnings are always hard.

On her legacy.

Hopefully, I brought people a certain joy. That will be a wonderful legacy.
