How tall is Joy Bryant? Joy Bryant is 5 feet, 9 inches, according to her IMDB.com biography, and that height seems about right, given that she was a famous model before becoming an actress and landing roles in movies like “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” and TV shows like “Parenthood.” Bryant was discovered by a modeling agency while studying at Yale University, and that led to work with Victoria’s Secret and Tommy Hilfiger. She’s got brains and beauty, and in all senses of the term, she holds her head high.
How tall is Joy Bryant relative to other actresses? She’s got four inches on fellow South Bronx, N.Y., native Jennifer Lopez, who stands 5 feet, 5 inches. Joy Bryant’s 5 feet, 9 inches also make her taller than Halle Berry—who’s the same height as J.Lo—and puts her eyeball to eyeball with Jennifer Hudson, yet another member of the 5’9” club.
Clearly, she fares OK with women in her chosen profession, but how tall is Joy Bryant relative to that other super famous Bryant? Sadly, she’s got nothing on NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, who stands 6 feet, 6 inches tall, but she’s probably not sweating it. Joy Bryant has had a tremendous career that’s taken her from “humble beginnings” in the South Bronx, where she hit the books hard and earned scholarships to prestigious schools, all the way to Hollywood. In addition to “Parenthood,” she’s appeared in hit films such as “Antwone Fisher,” “London,” “The Skeleton Key,” “Spider-Man 2,” and “Carmen: A Hip Hopera,” the MTV production that marked her first major acting role. That film features Beyonce, who stands 5 feet, 7 inches tall.
How tall is Joy Bryant? As tall as she needs to be—and smart and beautiful to boot.
