It could be shes 5 foot 10 in heels. or the male actors flight crew in top gun wore heeled boots to look taller because taller means extra put a tall guy beside a short guy the tall guy is automatically more masculine.. tom cruise was listed as 5 foot 8 for a logng time then he was listed at 5 foot 7. Now if hes 5 foot 8 in the morning hes 5 foot 7 in the afternoon as we tend to shrink throughout the day. 5 foot 10 and 5 foot 8 may seemingly look very close in height but to a tape measure it looks a lot bigger. In Top Gun Tom cruise always walked a little bit ahead of Kelly to give the impression that hes taller than she is. put them side by side you will see a difference. Hollywood magic

@Murphy: It's called lifts and camera angles. Works wonders.

If you look carefully, you can see the tricks they use to make Cruise seem taller. Tom's always closer to the camera, and sometimes, he'll step closer to the camera (away from Kelly) in the middle of a shot, i.e. in the scene with the motorcycle and her car outside his house.

She towers over Jodie Foster in the accused by at least 6 or 7 inches, so that makes her 178cm.
