Celebrities come in all shapes and sizes but some female a-listers are way taller than most people imagine. It’s probably not super shocking that Nicole Kidman is nearly six feet tall but that's because she stood next to much shorter ex-husband Tom Cruise for years. Comparatively, it's pretty astounding to learn that Taylor Swift is also almost a cool six feet. 

A few these tall women believed that their careers would be hurt because of their height; casting directors may have to look past an actress if she is significantly taller than the male lead. Other actresses, like Gwendoline Christie from Game of Thrones, needed every inch of their respective heights to land the roles of a lifetime. 

Read about these stars who are taller than you thought.
