Ever wondered how tall Angie Harmon is? Here are details about Angie Harmon’s body statistics and other interesting facts about the star.
At fifty, “Rizzoli & Isles” star Angie Harmon stands at an intimidating height that keeps her a head taller than most. Yet, the star managed to use her stunning physical attribute to her advantage, both in her modeling career and acting pursuits.
Interestingly, her tall figure is not the only intimidating aspect of Angie Harmon, who is a self-proclaimed republican. In fact, her political stance has made her subject to controversy at various points in her career.
She has stepped forward on various occasions to reiterate that her political stance in no way governed her thoughts or beliefs.
The star has been known to describe herself as a liberal Republican, thanks to her belief in some positions considered anti-republican, including her take on homosexuality and feminism.
She faced major backlash in August 2010, after shared a photo of herself wearing a white t-shirt with the words, Feminism is for everybody” inscribed. While her message was a nod to Women’s Equality Day, many conservative fans frowned upon it, calling out the actress for “switching to the dark side.”
Harmon quickly stepped up in her defense, clarifying that supporting feminism did not make her a “man hater’ as against the widely-held beliefs by most conservatives.
She went on to note that, despite her political background, she believed that women of all races, religions, and sexual orientations deserved equal rights. Although openly stating her beliefs lost the actress some of her conservative fans, she won over the hearts of many more, who, until then, slammed Angie Harmon for openly declaring her support for former POTUS, Donald Trump.
