Tom Cruise height: 5ft 7.75in (172 cm)
American actor best known for starring in films like Top Gun, Mission Impossible and Minority Report. The Biggest star in Hollywood has attracted a myriad of articles that appear to target his 'apparent' lack of stature. His height is regularly listed as being 5ft 7, although back in the 1980's he was actually being called 5ft 8 or 5ft 9. In 1988 he said "I have always been pretty much the same weight, 147 pounds - at 5 feet 9 inches"
. Ex-wife Nicole Kidman once remarked in 2001, 'Now I can wear heels again' and that she was a couple of inches taller than him.
Scottish comedian Billy Connolly, however, laughed at the notion Tom was some sort of midget, saying that "Tom was at least 5ft 10"
and that he's a "Smashing guy. Everybody thinks he's a small guy. He's not. I think they would like him to be wee. I think they're jealous b***ards."
Richard Harris seemingly thought the opposite, saying in 2001: "Tom Cruise is a midget and he has eight bodyguards, all 6ft 10in, which makes him even more diminutive. It's an absolute joke. Actors are unimportant."
. There is never-ending speculation as to whether he wears lifts or elevated boots, even some magazines falsely crediting an innocuous pair of Air Force One sneakers as some form of thick wedged elevator sneaker.
