Tom Hollander's Height
5ft 4.75in (164 cm)
British actor best known for roles in films such as Gosford Park, Land of the Blind, Enigma, In the Loop and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. In an Independent interview in 2016, he gave a couple of insightful remarks on the subject of height and Tom Cruise:
I never thought of myself as being short. Being an actor has made me much more conscious of it than I would have been otherwise.
We're [Tom Cruise and I] standing next to each other and he's a good two or three inches taller. With Valkyrie, I was excited at meeting this short superstar and was horribly disappointed to discover he was perfectly average.

I'm 5'11" and I met this guy last year. He's tiny. Barely over my shoulder. My brother's 5'6" and even he's around my eye level. I'd say Hollander's about 5'2"-5'3", no way he's nearly 5'5". And tbh I think 5'7"-5'8" is pretty average, it's just that most people claiming that height are around 5'5" ish.

@hans meiser an honest 5'7er can seem average

5'7 is average? That's cute.

Of course a weak 5'5 guy would think that a 5'7-8 guy is average. It's not though, but it at least breaks up more of the sub5'7 tom cruise myth

It's fascinating how different people perceive their own heights. Here we have Tom, a guy who is under 5'5" and never considered himself to be short. Then we have Paul McGann, who claims to be 5'9"(and looks pretty close to it), describing himself as "quite little". I guess in Paul's case, growing up in a taller family influenced his perception of what being small really is. Similarly with George W. Bush - having a 6'2" father and 6'3.5" brother made him feel like the "little guy" at 5'11". It's all comparative, I suppose.

Come on people ! Have you seen the Night Manager ? I had to stop watching because this character was an ex army captain! How would he even BE in the army at this height ! I'd say not over 5'1", he really is DeVito like.

I think this guy is 5'3" or even 5'2".
He's really not 5'5" because this guy is short enough that you can tell how short he is even when he's not standing next to anyone. He looks about the same height as my mom or girlfriend, who are both 5'2".

Tom Hollander is a very hot and sexy looking gentleman and it has his height down as 5" 5" tall and with all due respects he looks the same height as I am which is 5" 3" in height
Anyway Tom is gorgeous and I just love him to bits and would love to meet him and have a chat over a coffee with him one day and who knows maybe date him

He's a great actor with sexy eyes, perfect lips, and an I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E voice - who cares how tall he is? :)

Do you think you could take another look at him. I went through all of his pictures at Getty, and it seems as if almost every woman he is photographed with is taller...even if they weren't in heels. Either he hangs out exclusively with tall women, or he's quite a bit shorter than what he's currently listed.
Anyway, for reference, with 5'10"ish Russell Crowe:
And, in this picture, he actually looks a bit taller than he usually does in photographs. He just generally looks SO small, smaller than even you'd expect a guy 5'5" to look.

Tom is about 5'5, i think, because when i talk and stand next to him, i just barely look up to him. i am 5'3, so.. yeah. i think he's brilliant. i just love him to pieces.

Besides his height was else can you say about him? Why is he still single?

I was lucky enough to be in the crowd at the Premier of POTC2 and was suprised at how short he was; I am 5'2" and he didn't seem much taller than me - I suppose he could be 5! 5" at a push, Orlando and Johnny are a lot smaller than you would think, and both very slight.

My question is how he can look Orlando straight in the eyes in their first scene if he is about 4, 5 inches short than him? I've seen the picture. And did you notice that they never show his feet?! It's because he has like, major heels on!

I've been in a film with Tom Hollander, and actually danced with him. 5' 3" looks about right to me - maybe less - he really is tiny. Does it matter?

On second thought, I was wearing those extremely thin-soled indian style sandals (1/8th inch) and Tom was wearing proper shoes. So barefeet, it wouldn't surprise me if he is indeed 5ft 5.

I stood next to him at a party this summer and he seemed slightly shorter than I am (5ft 7). 5ft 6 sounds about right for Tom.
