* Wendy Corduroy from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is awfully tall for a fifteen-year-old girl. On the Gravity Falls Gossiper podcast [[WordOfGod Alex Hirsch]], in-character as Grunkle Stan, blames it on "freak lumberjack genes".

On the Gravity Falls Gossiper podcast [[WordOfGod Alex Hirsch]], in-character as Grunkle Stan, blames it on "freak lumberjack genes". Wendy doesn't seem to have any of the body image issues associated with this trope, however.

* 6'10" (and growing) 16-year-old [[http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/Meet-Bubbles-The-Worlds-Tallest-16-Year-Old-Girl Marvadene "Bubbles" Anderson.]] Her final height is expected to be around 7'1". Naturally, she plays basketball and wants to be in the WNBA.
* Music/TaylorSwift. She's 5'11".
* Creator/SophieTurner, who plays Sansa Stark on ''Series/GameOfThrones''. She's 5'9".
* Creator/ZendayaColeman, who played Rocky on ''Series/ShakeItUp'', was already 5'10" by the time she was 16. It's most likely genetics since she's said that her mother is 6'4".
* Female swimmers who go to the OlympicGames without having even finished high school are quite common, given height is an advantage and many qualify at young ages. In 2012, the American team included 6'1" Missy Franklin (4 gold medals at 17) and 5'11" Katie Ledecky (15, gold at the 800m). In 2016, Canada had 6' 1" Penny Oleksiak (younger sister of an equally huge NHL defenseman nicknamed "Big Rig") winning four medals, one of those a gold, at the age of 16.
* Creator/TaylorMomsen was 5'8" at 14 when ''Literature/GossipGirl'' started.
* All other examples pale before Zeng Jinlian, who at the time of her death at 17 was not only the tallest teenage girl in the world but at 8' 1.75" (248.3 cm) the tallest woman to ever live, the ninth tallest person to ever live, and the tallest living person during the year 1982 (The very slightly taller Don Koehler died a year before she did). Another contenders is fellow (at the time) world's tallest woman and short time tallest living person Jane Bunford (7'/210 cm at 15 and 7'8/233 cm at 19).
* Brooke Shields was 5'10" when filming ''TheBlueLagoon''...at age 14. This necessitated that many scenes be filmed with her either standing in a trench or with her costar Christopher Atkins [[ScullyBox standing on something to make her appear shorter than him.]]

* Creator/ElleFanning is 16 (as of 2014) and 5' 8", taller than her ''older'' sister, [[Creator/DakotaFanning Dakota]], who's 20.



* Yurina Kumai of Japanese pop group [[Music/HelloProject Berryz Koubou]] is 178 cm (5'10") tall. Keep in mind that the average height for women in Japan (and probably for women of Japanese descent) is only around 5'2".
* Presumably, 6'2" Creator/JuliaChild and her sister. Both fall for guys shorter then they are, despite Julia attempting to set her sister up with a tall guy (Sister: "What's he like?" Julia: [[DamnedByFaintPraise "He's...tall..."]]).
* The customers of [[http://www.tallgirlshop.com/ Tall Girl Shop]].



* ProfessionalWrestling
** Former Wrestling/{{WWE}} Superstar Wrestling/{{Chyna}} used to feel this way about her 5'10" stature. She mentioned one incident during a fitness competition, when most of the other girls were petite wispy things that weren't more than 5'4". They showed a wide shot of all the contestants; she thought she looked like an adult sneaking into a children's matinee. "Pardon me, miss, but you definitely look over 12 years old."
** Wrestling/StacyKeibler, who is 5'11".
** [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] had a partial example. Since he was already, 6'3" and 225 pounds when he was in high school, he had trouble meeting people (especially girls) since ''Series/TwentyOneJumpStreet'' was popular at the time so many people assumed he was a really badly disguised undercover cop.
* ''Series/TrueLife'' profiled a girl like this in the episode "I'm The Big Girl". Holley Mangold, sister of NFL center Nick Mangold, was 5'8" and was over 300 pounds. Her favorite sports included American football and weightlifting. She ended up competing in weightlifting in the 2012 Olympics and came in tenth, competing ''while injured''.



* Creator/PeytonRList (Emma on ''Series/{{Jessie}}'' and Holly in the ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' movies) is 17 and 5'6''.
* A rare male example was Pete Steele of Music/TypeONegative, who was very self-conscious of his 6'6" height. To the point where most of the band's photoshoots were taken with him sitting down or were from an angle where you can't tell just how much he towered over his bandmates.



* Creator/DorothyLSayers was 6'.
* Creator/BettyMacDonald was from her pictures quite tall; either that or she hung around with very short people.
* Cornelia Otis Skinner once described herself as "The Statue of Liberty--wardrobe by Peck & Peck."



* Volleyball star and fashion model Gabrielle Reece is 6'3".
* British actress GwendolineChristie is also 6' 3".

* Komori Shuri, the titular character from ''Manga/KomorisanWaKotowarenai'' is much taller than the other girls, especially her friends (6 feet at age 14). Very strong too. [[BoobsOfSteel And busty.]]

* Violet, Dilys, Alice, and Chell from the FurryWebcomic ''Webcomic/ScalieSchoolie'' tower over their classmates. While Dilys, Alice, and Chell are respectively a crocodile, alligator, and snapping turtle, and thus naturally much larger the others' animal versions, Violet the bush viper seems to be just naturally tall, especially since the other bush vipers in the cast are much shorter than her.
