Yes, Ava Michelle From 'Tall Girl' Is Really That Tall, Plus Where You’ve Seen Her Before


Netflix is just churning out original film after original film and they run the gamut of different genres. You've got the upcoming Steven Soderbergh flick, The Laundromat, which takes a humorous crack at the whole Panama Papers scandal, and on the other side of the spectrum, you've got feel-good teen flicks like Sierra Burgess is a Loser and now, Tall Girl

Tall Girl stars Ava Michelle as, you guessed it, a young woman with the gift of height.

Ava Michelle is the same height IRL as her character in Netflix's Tall Girl.

The actress, model, singer-songwriter, and dancer is 6'1, just like she is in the film. She plays Jodi, a 16-year-old who has always felt uncomfortable about how tall she is. 

She's tried to overcompensate by slouching and generally trying to keep to herself while doing her best to ignore the verbal slings from classmates who make her feel self-conscious about her 73-inch frame.
