Ingrid Bergman Height

Be yourself. The world worships the original.

~ Ingrid Bergman

Ingrid Bergman’s best work lies almost half a decade ago and yet any true cinema lover must know her. She is one of the most influential screen figures in cinematic history.

About Ingrid Bergman's Real Height

Ingrid Bergman was a big statuesque woman who looked very tall on the screen. Here is what she has to say about her size:

I can do everything with ease on the stage, whereas in real life I feel too big and clumsy.

Ingrid's height is listed as either 5 feet 9 inches or 5’10” on the web. Here is what Ingrid herself said about her height:

[I'm] Five Nine. - As Time Goes By.

We do think Ingrid looked that tall in her movies. In any case, what really matters is that Humphrey Bogart and other male actors had to stand on boxes to be not dwarfed by her in their scenes together. Yul Brynner even called Ingrid a big horse for that.

Modern actresses who are similar in stature to Ingrid Bergman are Gwyneth Paltrow, Katie Holmes, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gal Gadot, etc.

The height of Ingrid Bergman was

5 ft 9 in (175 cm)

Ingrid Bergman was a special person, here are some of her quotes which prove this:

Ingrid Bergman on getting old.

Getting old is like climbing a mountain; you get a little out of breath, but the view is much better!

On intuition.

You must train your intuition - you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.

On happiness.

Happiness is good health and a bad memory.

An hour.

Give me an hour and I'll make a lifetime out of it.

A good trick.

A kiss is a lovely trick to stop speech.

On her personality.

I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn't shut up.

On kisses.

A kiss is a secret told to the mouth instead of the ear; kisses are the messengers of love and tenderness.

On growing up alone.

I have grown up alone. I've taken care of myself. I worked, earned money, and was independent at 18.

On romancing.

One is never too old for romance.

On feeling guilty.

I always felt guilty. My whole life.

On regrets.

I have no regrets. I wouldn't have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say.

On loving work.

I hate Sunday, I can't wait for Monday so I can go back to work again.

The two kinds of people she was interested in.

I'm only interested in two kinds of people, those who can entertain me and those who can advance my career.

On her life.

My life has been wonderful. I have done what I felt like. I was given courage and I was given adventure and that has carried me along. And then also a sense of humor and a little bit of common sense. It has been a very rich life.

The secret of keeping young.

The best way to keep young is to keep going in whatever it is that keeps you going. With me, that's work and a lot of it. And when a job is finished, relax and have fun.

On growing old.

I don't worry about it because we are all growing old. If I were the only one I would worry. But we're all in the same boat, and all of my friends are coming with me. We all go toward old age. How many years are left we don't know. We just have to accept it.

The best advice she had ever received.

I said, "I don't think I can give you that kind of emotion." And he [Hitchcock] sat there and said, "Ingrid, fake it!" Well, that was the best advice I've had in my whole life, because in all the years to come there were many directors who gave me what I thought were quite impossible instructions and many difficult things to do, and just when I was on the verge of starting to argue with them, I heard his voice coming to me through the air saying, "Ingrid, fake it!" It saved a lot of unpleasant situations and waste of time.

Bye, bye.

Thank you for your coffee, seignior. I shall miss that when we leave Casablanca.
