Maybe 5ft 7.5 for both. Cruise lying about his height is predictable. Holmes rounding off her height to 5ft 8 is understandable.
Stephanie said on 22/Aug/07
I think after looking at pics of Katie without her usual 3" heels, we can conclude that Katie and Tom are the same height: 5ft 8in.
The only way Katie is 5' 9" is if Tom actually told the truth when he said he was 5' 9". This is doubtful but maybe he slouches or is just a man who looks short when he's really about average.
I still think they're both 5' 8"...

I thought Katie Holmes was 5ft 9 too until I saw the photos of her in flats in a Berlin Zoo this week. Cruise was not wearing lifts. His legs and shoes look normal. Katie looks like she is the same barefoot height as him.

Demeyer, yea she looks 5'9 whenever I see her.

yes, i understood.=) from which country r u by the way?
Sam said on 22/Jun/07
My lovely Ladies Kathryn and Sarah, You understood what i mean! i was hoping to say middle- sized, but i could not write my meanings in real words! but in Hollywood, You know, 5''7 is as a woman's Height ideal and lovely!
Sarah said on 21/Jun/07
Um Sam you said "Directors of Films interested in average height women, like Pfeiffer, Garner, Zeta-jones, Bullock."
None of those woman are average height and Garner is about 5"9herself...
Kathryn said on 29/May/07
@ sam: the average height for women in us is 5'4'' or 5'5''....the ones u named in ur comment arren´t average hight in us. they are all around 5'7''...and 5'7'' is average height in germany. so what average height did u mean?..i think katie is 5'9'' but maybe she´s a little smaller. 5'8'' minimum..
Jack said on 28/May/07
I met her in New York and Im pretty much 5'10" exactly and she was my height in heels...so maybe 5'8" or even 5'7"
Sam said on 11/May/07
I asked her height, and she said 5 8''. But i must to say now, she looked taller, like 5 10''. She answered me 5 9'' but I think she don't feel ok, when she too much taller than an average women height in States and may be Katie thinking of new Film castings! that all the Directors of Films interested in average height women, like Pfeiffer, Garner, Zeta-jones, Bullock.
Alex said on 30/Apr/07
I was just watching the movie Go yesterday. Who else has seen that? Well if you see it Katie looks at least 5'8 there, possibly 5'9. But with her saying both I don't think she's above 5'8.5 but not lower than 5'8 either.
Alex said on 18/Apr/07
Katie I think can get away with 5'9 plus because of her lean build and the way she carries herself and also her heels can fool some people. I think she looks at least 5'8, maybe 5'8.5. She even said 5'8 one time than 5'9 another. 5'8.5 may be the most accurate.

Kathryn said on 10/Apr/07
Katie looks 5'9'' definately. because when u look at her with husband tom cruise on pix then u can see she´s really taller than him. so 5'9'' maybe 5'8.5'' but i think 5'9''.
glenn said on 9/Apr/07
can you post that on the colin page dmeyer.thanks.
dmeyer said on 8/Apr/07
i met her i think at her shortest 5'8.5 but likely 5'9 strong
Viper said on 7/Apr/07
She might be 5-7 1/2.
timber said on 6/Apr/07
I don't see her any taller than 5-7
Viper said on 6/Apr/07
Ok, do you want me to say shes 5-3? Now thats downplaying. And If you think she looks taller than 5-8, then you cant judge height very well.
bikagyura said on 5/Apr/07
OMG! What's your problem Viper?! You downplay everyone! For having such an interest you sure ain't got an eye for heights...
dmeyer said on 10/Mar/07
i met her she is between 174 and 176 cm she looked 5'8 but i had big snickers with 1.2 inch and she had 0.25 in heels so she must be 5 feet 9
Viper said on 10/Mar/07
Shes 5-8 Max. Maybe as short as 5-7.

Take a look at this picture. These massive guys make her look tiny and short. Plus she is leaning. Click Here
ShiaLaBeoufGurl said on 8/Mar/07
yes, Katie is VERY tall when I saw her! She is taller than Tom...and Tom is (to me in the 5'6'' 5'7'' range.)
dmeyer said on 18/Feb/07
i met her very quick i am about 6'0.25 in sneakers and and i was walking behind her and she seemed more than 2 inches shorter than me but she had 0.25 like 0.6 cm heels almost barefeet so even if she was 3 inches shorter that means 5'9.75 in 0.25 heels so 5'9 but from wath i saw she is between 174 and 176 cm no more no less but i think in 4 inch heels like she wears sometimes or 4.5 she can easy apear 6 ft like 6'1 to 6'1.5 in heels
Kathryn said on 16/Feb/07
i would say she´s 5'8.5'' (174 cm) because I stood next to her on a celebrity party and I had sneakers on and she, too and she was definately 3 inches taller than me because I took a photo and you can see it clearly. By the way I´m exactly 5'7.5'' (171 cm).
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure on your calculation, any chance you can upload the photo somewhere so we can see it?]
sash said on 24/Jan/07
What really strikes me is how short everyone is in showbiz - I'm 179cm barefoot and I don't feel tall at all where I come from (Australia) its always fascinated me so many are so petite! Apparently at my 130lbs in LA I'd be a heiffer (big fat moo cow).
UNK said on 18/Jan/07
In that pic her shoes aren't flat.
dmeyer said on 18/Jan/07
in that pic were they are both wearing flat she lookes nearly 3 inches taller but maybe bad angle so 5 cm so 170.18 to tom and 175.26 for holmes i think 172 is morning height for tom
Realme said on 17/Jan/07
Looking at the picture she appears to be a real 5'9" girl! She is towering over all of the men. It's pretty scary that a woman who is under 6ft is the tallest out of about 7 men! What is happening to the world?
anonymous said on 3/Jan/07
I saw Tom cruise at a chic up-scale bar in NYC hanging out with his guy friends... his friends were not real tall either but taller than him. No Media around. He was short. I would say that he has to be around 5'6 at most and that is pushing it. So if Holmes is 5'9 Tom has got some good shoes on that only money can buy.
jan said on 30/Dec/06
gosh i can't believe you people, she is definitely 5 ft 9 and possibly even more, because she is about an inch taller than Tom ... it is so obvious ...
anonymous2 said on 13/Dec/06
she isn't wearing typical heels there, but notice that the soles of her shoes appear pretty thick, like clogs. she could be getting 1 to 2 inches from them.
dmeyer said on 12/Dec/06
she looked 5'8 but she was wearing 0.25 sleepers and i was wearing 1.2 sneakers so 5'9 or 5'8.75 174 to 175 minimum
Keoini said on 1/Dec/06
I saw her at UCLA during summer of 2003 while filiming "The First Daughter," she seemed like she was 6'2'' WITH HEELS. She was only a lil' bit shorter than those Hollywood mens, which are generally averaging around 6'~6'4''.
kampioen said on 30/Nov/06
I quote the Sunday Times (19 november 2006): "The age difference "never crossed my mind", she said. Nor did the height difference -at 5ft 9 she is 2in taller than Cruise's official height."
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9 has been Cruise's 'official' height since the 80's.]
maggie said on 23/Nov/06
You guys she is 5'8, obviously with 2-3 inch heels on she'll look taller but really, she's about the same height as Tom, I can't remember in what magazine but it was when they started dating and they were holding hands, she was wearing shorts and flip flops and they were the same height...I think they were on a vacation with the other kids, Isabella and Connor, anyways, she's tall but not extremely tall. I'm exactly 5'4, I have a co worker who is exactly 5'8 and she doesn't "tower" over me.
don said on 20/Nov/06
I met katie about 2 years ago when i was on vacation, im about 6'1 and a half in shoes (not special ones) and she seemed about 5'8, my girlfriend at the time was 5'7 and katie was only an inch taller, if that.
Viper652 said on 20/Nov/06
You really thought she was only 5-4? That is strange. Always looked tall to me. She looks around the same height as Hathaway. She could really be 5-7.
A Girl said on 20/Nov/06
Oh my! I always thought Katie Holmes was completely average, around 5'4'' at best. While trying to watch the news this morning they of course have gone back to 'Tomkat's wedding' about 10 times, and said she is 'a few inches taller' than her husband.
Ya'll are so crazy : P I don't know where people get the idea that women wear 2 inch heels, either. Dressy heels are generally a minimum of 3 inches. People regularly overestimate their heights (if you look at studies- when they are broken into two groups, those who are allowed to report their own heights and those who are measured, people who report their own heights are always the taller group). You're all so unreliable! Gosh.

I agree Glenn, She looks barely 5'9'' to me.
Glenn said on 14/Nov/06
I think she really is 5-9 Alex.I think they were 3 inchers.when ever I questioned my friends over her height,they would say "shewas tall" and the other line was "about an inch taller than you Glenn".
Glenn said on 13/Nov/06
She towered over me in heels.
Alex said on 13/Nov/06
Glenn, you say she appeared 5'11 in heels and you're a pretty good judge at height. Were they 3 or 4 inch heels if you saw? What would you estimat her barefoot height.
Alex said on 13/Nov/06
Viper, If she's as low as 5'7 then her heels are fooling me but I see her in the movie Go if you seen it and she was in sneakers and looked 5'9ish in them. I'd go with 5'8 for her barefoot height since she did say it and I'd take the lower height out of the 2 she said. You think she's 5'7 though?
Viper652 said on 13/Nov/06
5-8 at her absolute, absolute Max really.
Alex said on 13/Nov/06
Viper, she looks taller than 5'7. 5'8 minimum to me which is probably her height since she has that both that and 5'9. Thats because 5'8 is probably her barefoot height and 5'9 was calling it in shoes I can bet.
G-unit said on 8/Nov/06
Jesus, she's a monster.. I would say 5'9, 5'10.
dmeyer said on 29/Oct/06
if she was taller than 175 cn i wouldnt have been that mush taller so more 5'8.5 to 5'9
dmeyer said on 29/Oct/06
if she apeared 5'11 in heels it meands she is 5'8 or 9 in barefeet i met her yesterday she looked under 5'9 but ihad advantage in shoes so i think she is 174 to 175 cm no more thats pretty tall for a girl i think she aleast 5'8 ant at the most 5'9 near ton cruise she looks 5'9 atleast but know that i saw her in person even thaugh cruise apeared near 5'9 at 174 in suspicious shoes so i think he is 5'7.5 barefeet no more because even in 1.5 in heels and her in flat he barely looks her height and also i never met cruise with normal shoes he alwais has height cut boots so must be 1 to 1.5 lifts in normal shoes cruise look 171-2 range and in lifts looks 175-6 range
dmeyer said on 29/Oct/06
in the pic he is the same height because he has 2 in and she has 0.25 in
dmeyer said on 28/Oct/06
i met her today she seemed to be in the 5'8 to 5'9 i was very mush taler at about 5'11 but i had 1.25" sneakers and she had 0.25 flip flops type she make tom look so short that i thaught she could be 5'10 she looks like 174 anythyng from 173 to 175 is possible but since she had only 0.25 " shoes i'dsay she is close to 175 but not taller and since ton even with 3.5 cm boots and who knows waths inside steel looks the same or a hair smaller so ton is defenetly no taller than 172 possibly 170 cm only she looked 5'8 but i had shoes advantage so maybe 174 175 zone for katie but anithing fron 5'8.25 to 5'9 is possible
said on 17/Oct/06
This is an imperfect pic, but anyway it shows Katie in flats next to Tom who is wearing chunky shoes. she doesn't look 5-9 here to me, more 5-7 (and Tom may be an inch or so shorter than she without the shoes): Click Here
Viper652 said on 5/Oct/06
I can beleive she is 5-7.
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/06
Saw her in Las Vegas this weekend, in the Wynn Hotel. She is not taller than 5'7" and Tom is about 5'6". He really is TINY and she didn't appear very tall (even in 3 inch heels). I am 5'8". And she wasn't quite my height. But BEAUTIFUL in person.
anonymous2 said on 2/Oct/06
yeah, that was obviously a mistake. I meant 170 cm.
Drew said on 27/Sep/06
"in recent pics where she is wearing flats she Iooks 176 cm or 5'7, tops"
176cm is over 5'9"
Emma W said on 24/Sep/06
I think she might be shorter. In heels she looks only about 3 inches taller than Tom, so without she might be the same height

Shes 5-8 Max.

i met katie and she was only slightly shorter and im like 178.5 cm so i think she is around 177 cm or something.(non of us were wearing heels)
DMeyer said on 14/Aug/06
i think she is a solid 5 feet9 maybe a tad more since she looks taller than cruise when she wear 0.5 cm shoes and he is in boots so aleast 175-6 range
Steph said on 11/Aug/06
Katie said she was 5' 8" when she was 19. I doubt she grew more after that, but it is possible. MOST girls are done growing by 16-18, but some grow a little longer. By age 25, everyone (men & women) is done growing, but before then you never know. :)
I see her listed as 5' 8", 5' 9" and 5' 10".
Brad said on 6/Aug/06
Katie 5' 9" & Tom 5' 7" and baby 16". Nicole: taller than Katie.
Magnus said on 19/Jun/06
Come on..."as short as 173 cm". Come on!...2 inches more than 1,73 is not much.
Even a genious can figure that out right ?
It`s not like when i stand between her, she feels like mount everest ;). Maybe you don`t even see the difference at all. Because 2 inches...*hah, silly*

Mystique said on 29/May/06
Met her at the Batman Begins premiere and I think she's like me without shoes and I'm 5'9". In no case taller, rather smaller.
Anonymous said on 25/May/06
IMBD is the least acurate site out there. That is where agents send in heights etc. and they exaggerate to perpetuate the issue. Always deduct 2 inches from IMBD.
BIG TEEZY said on 8/May/06
Katie is listed on IMDB at 5'9" which I always figured would be accurate or maybe even 5'10" since Josh Jackson says (and is listed at) 6'2" and in scenes shared with Katie, he does appear to be 4" taller which would put her at about 5'10"...HOWEVER, I just watched one of the college episodes of Dawson's Creek which had Chad Michael Murray in it as Holmes love interest and this particular scene was a FULL BODY "two shot" of them walking. Point is...Chad is listed at 6'0" exactly and Katie clearly had a 3" boot heel but he was still 3 or 4 inches taller!!! I don't believe Michael Murray is more than 6'0" since he was on Gilmore Girls and at one point came face to face with Jared Padelecki's character DEAN, and Jared was at least 2" taller> Chad's character asks DEAN "...what are you, like 6'1", 6'2"?" to which DEAN replies: "6'1" "!!!! So...if Jared Padelecki is 6'1" (I can't imagine him to be taller since they would never want to make an actor seem shorter than they really are!) then it is possible that Chad Michael murray is only 5'11", and Katie Holmes would be what...5'5"?! I know it sounds crazy since she looks so tall but, she could have one of those decieving builds that makes her look like she should be much taller. I dunno...I think Katie has to be 5'8"-5'9" but it's all on tape so check it out for yourselves! The Gilmore girls episode was in the first season and if I am correct, it was Dean and Tristan's first meeting. The Dawson's Creek episode was one of the later seasons Chad's character is leaving to hit the road with his band. Just thought it was all worth mentioning.
Alex said on 6/May/06
She has said both 5'8 and 5'9. I'd lean more toward 5'9 but maybe shes 5'8.5 and lies in the middle of 5'8 and 5'9 since she has said both.
said on 25/Apr/06
This Parade article with Tom Cruise (Click Here
) informs that Katie Holmes "is about 5 foot 10". The writer then notes that Cruise is 5 foot 7.
nou-nou said on 30/Mar/06
The Holmes family are family friends of mine, and they are a tall family indeed. I'd say Katie is about 5'10 because her mother is 6' and she was just a bit smaller than her.
Leo said on 27/Mar/06
Katie is very tall. Close to 5'10. Her whole family is very tall. My niece goes to the same modeling school Katie went to, and I was told she is as tall as my niece who is 5'10.
Jared said on 7/Mar/06
Im really confused on this whole height topic. 5'7 apparently is tom Cruise's height, but some say hes 5,9, even that tom cruise fan site says hes 5,10 (178cm). Which can't be true because that would mean he's close to George Clooney's height which i believe is 5,11 or 6ft. And at the oscars he was slightly taller than Nicole Kidman who was wearing heels! I think Tom is 5,7 (170) because if you watch in Jerry Maguire, hes about or very slightly shorter than Jay Mohr (Bob Sugar) and Jay is 171 cm tall. As for Katie, 5,9 seems about right. With her slim frame she looks even taller though.
Alex said on 7/Feb/06
here is a gallery of some pics with Tom and Katie but we can't see footwear but say if they are wearing the same type of footwear, Katie appears about 2 inches taller.
Kats said on 4/Feb/06
She must be working the slouching lately... in recent pictures, pregnant Katie looks noticibly shorter than Tom! He must be wearing lifts, while she is in flats. Combined with some possible slouching, we've got quite the illusion going on. I agree, she is about 5'9. Tom--5'7.
Alex said on 2/Feb/06
Tom is no way taller than Katie. Shes at least an inch taller than him and hes 5'7 I'd go with. But yea she has said 5'8 but also has said 5'9. Could be either, maybe she means 5'8 barefoot and 5'9 in shoes?
TNTinCA said on 1/Feb/06
Considering she is marrying Tom Cruise, she had better learn to slouch.
ds said on 30/Jan/06
She's 173cm trust me, sometimes she says she's 5'7", 5'8", or 5'9" so 5'8" is best. I met Tom Cruise and he's 169-170. So if she's like 3 or 4 cm taller she's 5'8"...thats what she's always listed...
sianna said on 19/Jan/06
this height is right, a quote from InStyle magazine (Australian edition july 2005) "Her willowy frame (1.75m in flats and, no, she's not self-conscious about wearing heels)..." she diffinately looks taller!
Heightfind said on 4/Jan/06
She's skinny and about 5'8.5 which looks tall on a girl. It's impossible to speculate or imagine Cruise without shoes(and lifts,lol) in a given photograph. He would wear lifts in his coffin.Those pics at the premier are a real eye opener - she is wearing flatties and he is wearing...God knows what in those very big heeled boots,and he is STILL struggling to look eye to eye with her.Cruise is a definite 5'6" barefoot.Just look at the length of Cruise's thighs - very very short - nothing can disguise that.Her legs are like a gazelles compared with his.
175cm16andgrowing said on 3/Jan/06
@Marc: So she's 5'11'' :D. Cruise also doesn't seem to be small in his movies. The thing is the guy stands 201lbs sometimes, is very muscle and wears lifts so he appears to be taller than he really is, just like Jean-Claude Van Damme. Katie is skinny and can look 5'10'' but I'm sure she's 5'9''.
Marc said on 2/Jan/06
I know for a fact that she is 5'8". Tom Cruise commented that she was only an inch taller than him.
Steph said on 24/Dec/05
I am 5' 8" and Katie is almost exactly my height. Give or take 1/4" at the most. I think that she was telling the truth when she said 5' 8", and a lot of fan sites list her as being 5ft 8.
Anonymous said on 22/Dec/05
if shes 5'9" tom is 5'5" because she makes him look like a hobbit
LAAnonyme said on 22/Dec/05
Katie Holmes is 5'8", possibly 5'8.5" but I doubt it. You cannot judge her against Tom Cruise when both are wearing "flats" because it is well known in the industry that Cruise wears lifts in his shoes. He is just under 5'7".
Amanda said on 16/Dec/05
Katie is 5' 8.5" and Tom is 5' 9". That explains:
1) Why Katie said she's "like 5ft 9" and later on said she was 5' 8"
2) Why, when both Tom and Katie are in flats, Tom looks slightly taller than Katie
Katilin said on 15/Dec/05
When I met her we were exactly the same height and I am 5' 8.5" (174 cm).
glow said on 7/Dec/05
I found a few interesting full length shots of TomKat. Supposedly they are both in flats (although a bit suspicious about Tom's!) In this one Katie looks taller:
But suddenly she is dwarfed by him in this next one, perhaps due to the length of her strides as she walks:
In this one they suddenly appear to be the same height, keeping in mind that Katie is close to the camera:
So it's anyone's guess really! What do you guys think?
mika said on 4/Dec/05
Tom Cruise is slightly taller than Katie when Katie is not in heels (or subtracting the 3"-4" from her height if she is in heels. And even if Tom is in elevator shoes, the amount of extra height added cannot be that much because otherwise the heel of the foot would be as tall as the shoe and his shoe would come off as he was walking! I think Katie is 5' 8.5" and Tom is 5' 9" like he says. He just seems smaller because a) the average height for a man is just under 5' 10", and b) a lot of time he works with men who are 6' or taller, so they have 3+ inches on him.
6' is "not that tall"... for a man. That's like a woman being 5' 6.5". A woman at 6' is tall. That would be the equivalent of a man at 6' 5.5". According to a medical site I went to (for women):
5' 0" is the 4th percentile, 5' 1" is the 9th percentile, 5' 2" is the 19th percentile, 5' 3" is the 32nd percentile, 5' 4" is the 47th percentile, 5' 5" is the 62nd percentile, 5' 6" is the 76th percentile, 5' 7" is the 86th percentile, 5' 8" is the 93rd percentile, 5' 9" is 98th percentile. Anything above 5' 9" or below 4' 11.5" doesn't register (top and bottom 2%)
ds said on 11/Nov/05
Actually Gigy, 5'7" is pretty tall. I'm 5'7"/5'8" and I'm taller than almost everyone in sneakers. it's more like 5'0 and under really short 5'-5'3" short. 5'4" - 5'6" average, 5'7" - 5'11" tall, anything above freaky!!!And Anonymous, 5'8" is tall for a girl (top 95%), maybe you just aren't 6'
ds said on 11/Nov/05
5'8" solid, on the dot. That's what she was always listed before "TomKat".
MissyB said on 8/Nov/05
Tom Cruise is 5'7, so Katie cannot be 5'7!
JUSTMATT said on 1/Nov/05
Ok now Rob the question is...if you go to www.gettyimages.com there are some photos of Katie Holmes with 5.8 Downey Jr. In those photos Downey with shoes on is a max of 5.10 (even if I think 5.9) and Holmes is a max of 2 inches taller so around 5.11. We cannot see her shoes but we can imagine that she has heels, maybe 2 inches, so without heels she is probably 5.9. What I want you to notice is the difference that there is between 5.8 Downey and 5.9 Holmes instead of the difference between Holmes and Cruise: Cruise in elevator shoes is shorter than Downey Jr in trainers so in my opinion CRUISE IS A MAX OF 168 CM!

Sighting: Saw Katie Holmes in the soho Sephora yesterday wearing a pink wool coat, shades and yapping into her cell phone. As I think I’ve read in other gawker stalkers, she is surprisingly tall…5’7” or 5’8” and cute though not much cuter than any other NYC cute girl.
CoolJ said on 31/Oct/05
I think its safe to say Holmes is taller than Cruise by a fair margin. Look at those shoes he has on.. and she's still his height or very close to it
Anonymous said on 24/Oct/05
If Katie says 5'8" and Tom 5'9", that means Katie 5'6" and Tom 5'7". My friend raced with Tom when he was training for Days of Thunder. There are several pictures. which you can find maybe on Bondurant Racing School's site, that prove cruise is 5'6"-7". All that 5'9" stuff is crazy talk.

I think she's 5'7" . all celebrities are fudging their heights a lot and you have to knock 2" off. She wears big heals too much to be that tall. When you are 5'9" and dating the 5'7" tom cruise you don't wear big heels. It's a publicity stunt by her camp.
[Editor Rob: wireimage links you submitted unfortunately don't work...that site is a bit dodgy with linking unless you link to the 'event' the pics appear in]

I really think she's only 5'8. In "The President's Daughter", Michael Keaton was 1-1.25 inches taller than her in his normal shoes while she was wearing two-inch heels. Most likely, she is 5'8 w/o shoes and 5'9 in tennis shoes. Margret Colin, who was wearing a similar heel looked 2.5-3 inches taller than her. Here is a photo from the film that was close to representing the height difference between the two. Keaton is 5'10, not 5'11. If he is wearing 1-1.25 inches of sole and she is wearing 2 inch heels, then she's close to 5'8.
I, too, thought she was taller at 5'9 but when you see her in tennis shoes, you can see she isn't as tall as you might think. She and Cruise are of similar height even though she appears taller with her 4-inch heels.

Does Katie know something about Christian Bale that we don't?!? will Christian become Christana before the next movie?!? tune into the next exciting installment of Batman to find out!!!

She's now consistantly saying her height as 175cm: "[Christina Bale] is taller than me and very muscular. I’m not a petite little actress – I’m 5-foot-9 – so I made him sweat a little"

Although I've never met her I saw her on the set of Dawsons Creek when my friend worked on the show for a while as an assitant PR. And lemme tell you I'm over 6ft tall, and Katie is one of the tallest woman I've ever seen she was wearing Sandals and I felt that she was at least 5'10. She was very close to my height

From Gawker - "Saw Chris Klein and Katie Holmes at 14th Street and Eighth Avenue. They were both bundled up, and much taller then I thought they would be"

Katie - "They always say, "Oh, you're big""

In the latest ( August issue) Instyle magazine with Katie on the cover, it says that she is 5'9 in flats, whých means she is probably 5'8 barefoot, right?

So If shes 5-7, then that would confirm James Vanderbeek's height around 5-9 from Dawsons Creek.
Mr. Klaus said on 9/Jul/05
I saw her at the Batman Begins Premiere. With heels on she is pretty close to my height wich is 6 ft 1. I think that she is really 5 ft 9.
Z2 said on 9/Jul/05
Katie Holmes said she was 5'7" in Rolling Stone magazine. The bigger her stardom got, she was rounded to 5'8". She doesn't look 5'8" to me. She looks dead even with 5'7".
Danny said on 9/Jul/05
She is only 5'7 on my view. she wears big heels. heels don't count to height.
Bleemo said on 28/Jun/05
Does anyone remember the Graham Norton with her on, not only did she look huge but they even commented on how large she was, I think this listing is correct.
[Editor Rob: yes, she towered over Norton but she had on humungus sized heels aswell...]
Viper652 said on 28/Jun/05
Vander Beek's real height is 5-10. No way he even comes close to 6 foot. He never looked above 5-9 in the show actually.
Drew said on 28/Jun/05
5'4" is the average height for a woman, therefore I'd say anything over 5' 6" is tall for a woman.
A six foot woman is extremely tall. 6ft is 8 inches above the average 5'4"...so that's like being a man and 6'5", which is definitely considered extremely tall.
And I'd say Katie is 5'8" not 5'9". She looked that height on Dawson's Creek, compared to the 6' James Van Der Beek (he's listed 5'10" on this website but I'm pretty sure that's incorrect, unless he wears lifts) and 6'2" Jackson. And she was always wearing flat shoes.
[Editor Rob: Van der beek hasn't been listed anything other than 6ft on here...but Katie, sometimes her penchant for big heels might actually be fooling me. Although I think 173cm is too short, 174cm...hmmm]

i beg to differ on gigy's comment of height categories. in my opinion, it ought to be: 4'9-5'3 short, 5'4-5'6 normal, 5'7-5'10 tall, and 5'11 and over as extra tall. but maybe i'm just being generous! ;)
Gigy said on 27/Jun/05
Actually, women are usually placed in short, normal, tall and extra tall categories! Generally, 4'9-5'4 is considered realy short to shortish, 5'5-5'7 is considered normal, 5'8-5'11 is tall, and 6'0-6'2 extra tall! Therefore, Katie Holmes does belong in the ´tall´ group, and as for those women who are 6'0 and above, well they belong into the ´extra tall´ group!

She made Tom Cruise look like a umpa lumpa in the MTV Awards show, even though Tom was wearing his big heeeled boots. She was standing easily 6' feet tall with heels on.

Umm: Here is a site about average heights around the world. For the US, womens' average height is 5' 4.1". In Sweden it is 5' 5.4" and in the Netherlands it is 5' 7.1", so for there I guess that 5' 8" and 5' 9" isn't all that tall.
Umm said on 8/Jun/05
Anonymous.. I dont know if you're from the Netherlands or Sweden, but the average height for a girl in America is about 5'4". 5'8" is pretty tall for a girl and 6' is very tall for a girl.

Katie is pretty tall when you add 2-3 inch heels. Also, have you seen the nickname given to her and her "intended " Tom Cruise? The media is calling them:
Anonymous said on 5/Jun/05
5'8'' is nothing, I would never call her pretty tall. Now if she was 6' then I would say she's pretty tall. I've been told that I'm not all that tall and I have 4 inches on her!
Mr. R said on 9/May/05
Actually, I have discovered that most men in Hollywood tend to round up 1-2 inches, and the taller women, tend to round down. I have met Nicole Kidman twice, and Uma Thurman once, and I think that they are both a little taller than listed. Katie's downgrade of height would be consistent with this practice. Also, if people think that women are "too tall", they will be hard to cast against shorter male actors.

I'm not sure why she would say she is shorter than she actually is--unless she's just excessively modest! She does have a very petite, lanky build which can make someone seem taller. She's probably 5 8 1/2.
Iloveheat said on 30/Apr/05
So did you see the last pictures of Tom Cruise and Katie? If she is 5'9", and I hope so for Tom, then Tom must be at least one inch smaller than her, or, given that she wears high hills, he is as tall as her, bu for sure no way taller than 5"9".
Cooky said on 30/Apr/05
Wow,she's that tall?!?She always looked 5ft 4 or 5ft 5 to me. :)

Nothing is wrong with the camera and its obvious that katie is taller than heidi[Editor Rob: I'm really only talking about very subtle effects. This is the picture. I do say we don't know Katie's heel size as her jeans cover them in other shots at the event so you must consider that aswell. In that pic the red horizontal line is what you consider clearly shows a 2 inch difference and therefore holmes at 5ft 10-11...But it's not that simple...you have to consider perspective and the sign and door hanger give us a clue. If you swung the camera round to the left a bit and klum's posture was only slightly better there may not be as much difference as the horizontal red line indicates. These are only very subtle effects though and it really is possible katie could be 176cm, I don't rule that out ;)]
Anonymous said on 28/Apr/05
She is 5'10 or 5'11.look at her standing with the 5'9 heidi klum and they had the same heels and katie was 2 inches taller than her.
[Editor Rob: Ain't sure on Katie 'exact heel sizes' in those photos...but doesn't Klum's posture look a tiny bit worse than katie's 2 legs together stance? There are again very slight camera considerations with those photos which can add up to making someone look an inch taller than they are...but yes she could be pushing 176cm for sure! Certainly Cruise is happy - he gets to dust of his nicole kidman special shoes when seen with holmes!]
