The long-awaited That ’70s Show sequel, That ’90s Showhas finally launched on Netflix. This has led to many fans revisiting That ’70s Show and seeing how the returning actors have changed in the intervening years. This reignited nostalgia, however, has raised many questions about the cast. One frequently asked question centers on Laura Prepon, the iconic actress who plays Donna Pinciotti in both shows. Specifically, how tall is she in real life?

What is That ’90s Show aboutand who is returning for it?

That ’90s Show is set in 1995, which is 15 years after That ’70s Show ended. Eric Forman and Donna Pinciotti’s teenage daughter, Leia Forman, is trying to find her social circle and place in the world. During the summer, she stays in Point Place, Wisconsin, with her grandparents, Red and Kitty Forman. During the summer, Leia will meet a group of other teens and form bonds with them, all while going on comedic adventures as events frequently go in unexpected ways. 

One highly talked about thing about the new show is that many of the original That ’70s Show cast will reprise their roles. The most notable returns are Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith, who will reprise their role as Red and Kitty Forman and appear in all the new episodes. 

Other returning performers will make guest appearances throughout the season, with Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Don Stark appearing in one episode each. Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama have been confirmed to appear in three episodes. Plus, the legendary Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong fame will appear in two episodes of the new series. 

How tall is Laura Prepon?

According to CelebrityHeights.com, Laura Prepon is 5ft 9 ¾ inches, or 177.2 cm tall. Prepon has publically commented on her height in the past. Notably, in 2015, when a Twitter user asked how tall she was, she happily confirmed that she was “5’10 with out heels.” 

This stunning height makes her one of the tallest members of the That ’70s Show cast, being only a little shorter than Ashton Kutcher (6ft 2 inches), Topher Grace (5ft 10 inches), and Kurtwood Smith (6ft 1 inch.) 

Prepon’s height was most pronounced when she shared the screen with the 5ft 4 inch Kunis, as Prepon often towered over her co-star. To make this difference look less jarring and to avoid shot framing issues, scenes where their characters interacted often featured them both sitting down. In moments where this was not possible, Kunis wore platform shoes to close the gap.
