[Christian 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. I was like, 'I love this!'
-- Florida Today, May 2005
The first thing every casting director says is, 'How big are you?' Fortunately, the guys on [Dawson's Creek] are tall. So I'm learning to embrace my height.

Yeah I can buy 5-8.5 over 5-9
Realist said on 2/May/22
She might be 5'8.5 if her and Tom Cruise are barefoot she would have an inch on him which is practically nothing.

She might just be millionaires under 5’9

Weak 5’9”

Likely not full 5'9 if she once claimed to be under. 174 cm imo.

A happy 42nd birthday to Katie Holmes. 🍰🥳
Abby said on 21/Nov/20
Rob, it looks like her weight hasn't changed since her Dawsons Creek days. She's usually described as 58 kg, do you think that's accurate for both then and now?
Editor Rob
I'd say in Dawson's days that could have been possible, but in last 10 years I'd have added a couple of kg to that figure.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Nov/20
Maybe her 5'8 claim was a slouch measurement she didn't even care about. 7/8th inch over 5'8 i can buy that at night. Guy Pearce look a strong 3cm on her (look 3.5cm range apart)
Black Noir said on 10/Oct/20
What would u say she is rob; 175.5 cm? Or 174.6 cm?
Editor Rob
I would say 5ft 9 but not over it...I don't think just flat 5ft 8 like she once claimed though.
TheBat said on 25/Sep/20
Probably measures at 5’8.75” but I’m fine with this listing.

@Chris Junior Hernandez

Jamie can look around 176cm but that’s more likely his morning height.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Aug/20
I did believe she hold flat 175 cm before bed and Jamie Foxx 176 cm.
Editor Rob
From her days with Cruise she rarely stood tall in photos with can end up a bad habit.

Yes her avg height has reached 175 cm 👏👏👏👏👏
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Aug/20
Katie weak 5'9 , Jamie Foxx strong 5'9.

I love her she's so beautiful and she's strong 5'9.5" at 176.5 cm
No name no shame said on 2/Jul/20
I always thought she's more of a 5'9" girl so could be 175.5 cm
HJ said on 14/Jun/20
she looked 3-4 inches shorter than murray on dawson's creek. so a 5' 8" listing might be more accurate.
Jam Cherry said on 4/Jun/20
Think she’s 175 cm or 5’9”
Realist said on 30/May/20
I will go with 5'8.75 almost 5'9
JohnMoore-162cm said on 7/Apr/20
I think she is more like 5ft8 1/2" ,, she claimed both 5ft8 & 5ft9

💐💝🎊🎂 Happy Birthday Katie! 🎂🎊💝💐

Here's wishing delightful brunette actress Katie Holmes a dynamic 41st Birthday!

The first film of hers I saw was 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark', a Guillermo del Toro film, which also includes Guy Pearce in its cast. Katie was my favourite character because she was the comforting feminine company that the little girl needed.

5ft9. 😁👍

"Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Mar/19
Jamie Foxx is taller than Katie. Katie is 5'8.75" at best and Jamie at least solid 5'9.25" not less."

I would say the opposite -- Holmes is taller in photos of them in comparable footwear and is no less than 5'9" but is more likely 5'10".
Immaike said on 25/Oct/19
Nah way. A friend of a mutual friend had her picture taken with her and she didn't really look that tall, considering my friend's friend is only 5'2 or 5'3. And FYI Tom Cruise is much shorter than what he is listed as... more like a a legitimate 5'5

Also in Batman begins she looks a whole two inches taller than Cillian Murphy who we concluded is 5’7. So she could definitely pass over 5’9 for me
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/18
Her 5'8 claimed make a confused. I did go with 5'8 1/2.
khaled taban said on 28/Aug/18
Average guess is 175.2 cm , In fact she looks no more than 174cm/5'8.5" with a good posture !
Nik said on 19/Jun/18
Yeah, taller than Taylor Swift!
MAD SAM said on 17/Jun/18
So she was 172-173 cm when she was 29 years old and now she’s 176 cm, she grew 3-4 cm after age 20 as well
Intevel said on 28/Jan/18
Rob is she possibly taller than Taylor Swift? That’s what people are saying.
Editor Rob
I think she's a classic 5ft 9, who with good posture probably can look taller at times.

Katie and I are both born on the same year and have the same height(175) .Growing up as a fan of Dawson Creek I saw an article she said she was 173 and she was only 19 that time. Yes women still grows after childbirth I was 174 at 19 now Im 175
Slim 182 cm said on 27/Jul/17
Ah, more trolls. Her listing is good.
Charlie said on 3/Jun/17
A 5'4 female in 8 inch heels does not make her 5'9. There are photo's of her and Tom Cruise. She in her Monster heels looks 1 inch taller than 5'6 Tom.Think about it if she was 5'9 then her height with those monster heels would be 6'1 but she is 1 inch taller than Tom Cruie while in heels.She needs a serious downgrade and i would place her between the 5'3 to 5'4 mark.
KH said on 25/Apr/17
Katie is right around this mark so it makes the listing fine. Could be a little taller or shorter. You really can't tell about a half an inch or less in height difference between two people with the naked eye. Its really tough.
Jay said on 24/Apr/17
Katie is not shorter than 5'9. Why else would she be the same or even a bit taller looking than Taylor Swift? People need t stop trying to downgrade everybody, and using weird or staged pictures.
RisingForce said on 15/Apr/17
If she's 5'11" then Tom Cruise is near 5'10"(look up the barefoot photo of them) Katie is likely 5'8.5", right in between her claims. Maybe she's 5'9" flat, but no more.
HonestSlovene said on 26/Feb/17
In reality she is probably 5'8.5"-5'9" or so (reply to lower 2 comments).
JustaGirl said on 30/Jan/17
She is definitely closer to 5'11" or so. (Can't explain, but some people very close to me are close to her.) I could tell she was much taller than 5'8" or 5'9" based on how tall she looked within our group.
height lover said on 17/Jan/17
5'9 ?, seriously people, you can't be serious this woman is clearly shorter than tom cruise who's not over 5'6, this woman is about 5'5.7 or 5.5.5, she's just look a little bit taller than tom cruise on those high heels.
J.Lee said on 13/Nov/16
He Rent, Rob downgraded Taylor by a quarter inch. I'm thinking we should upgrade Katie by a quarter inch. Based on the photos, we don't have evidence that Taylor is taller than Katie. What do you think Rob?
Maura said on 13/Oct/16
Beautiful face, horrible posture, slumps all the time.
Rent said on 2/Oct/16
She looks obviously taller by an inch or close than Taylor Swift when they are next to next in the photos, and their heels look identical. I think an upgrade could be right for Katie, Rob, or a downgrade for Taylor.
The Architect said on 2/Oct/16
5'8.0" pretty lovely and tall
J.Lee said on 15/Sep/16
You know Rob, Katie Holmes has sometimes seemed insecure about her height. Why is it that some supermodels like to boost up their height an inch and a half, but then Katie Holmes will not round up, but round down? She said 5 ft 8 in an online chat. Some girls like to round down. In a Dawson's Creek episode, Katie Holmes (playing Joey Potter) said she felt too tall. I wonder if she really felt that way or if it was just part of the script.

We have seen Katie Holmes standing next to Taylor Swift and they look very similar in height. But Taylor Swift has claimed 5 ft 11 and Katie Holmes had claimed 5 ft 8. I wonder if that is just part of Katie's personality.
Editor Rob
on average you will find more inflation than deflation when stating height, but it sometimes gives an insight into the psyche of individuals.

I think the fact she came out with a subsequent 5ft 9 seems to be more accepting of that height. She certainly could be a solid enough 5ft 9.
Scott said on 8/Aug/16
I think it's funny how women say, "Women never lie about their height." That is total BS.
My sister is about 5' 9.5" and she claims 5' 11". I'm right around 5' 11.5", and she's a healthy two inches shorter than I am.
Anon87 said on 14/Jul/16
@ Jackie, it's because the baby is what was holding their height down a bit so they don't really stand up straight so get your facts right
Jackie said on 10/Jul/16
I think she is 175 cm. Its true women tend to grow after giving birth. I was 173 when i was 23 after 2 kids i became 175 barefoot, also happened with my mom.
bruh said on 6/Jul/16
In every picture of her and taylor swift, katie is taller and i believe taylor is a good 5' 9''' so i don't see how katie is less than 5'10''

@ Anon, Katie is taller than Taylor Swift. I doubt Taylor is shorter than 5'8.
Anon said on 27/May/16

5'8.5 of course... if she said 5'8 she is not taller that 5'8.5

She's taller than 5'9
Just said on 18/Mar/16
@ J. Lee I don't know if Katie has grown taller but next to Taylor and Jenna she does seem 5'9"5 to me.
Adolfus said on 14/Mar/16
5'8", possibly 5'9".
J.Lee said on 14/Feb/16
Allie, I believe that measuring in the morning at the doctors can create height inaccuracies. 2 reasons. One is you're taller in the morning and the other reason is that sometimes they measure you in your shoes. No wonder some people are off by 2 inches. But in Katie Holmes case if you look at pics of her with Charlize Theron and Taylor Swift, you'll start to question whether or not Katie Holmes is really only 5 ft 9. I think she is closer to 5 ft 10, more like 5 ft 9.5- 5 ft 9.75. She doesn't seem shorter at all than Charlize and Taylor. Sure, the postures are different, but if you really look at this pics, you'll see where I'm coming from.
Allie said on 12/Feb/16
I've never been preggers but I've never believed those taller after preganancy things. I believe either posture improved or that a woman's body may change in appearance (as in weight gain or feet or other parts getting bigger) but growing an inch after sounds kind of crazy. Perhaps carrying the baby around made them stand straighter? A woman I know said her posture improved a lot when she was pregnant carrying her baby. I know some others may have worse posture because of all that weight but I've Talked to some womem who actually tried improving their posture while pregnant.

Either that or they meaured in the morning or at a check up. I know my brother sometimes gets put down as 6'2 at the doctors even though we measured him at home at 6'4-5, with measuring tape and all. I've heard similar stories with other people. Possibly that?
Tunman said on 11/Jan/16
Women being taller aften giving birth?lol.I know a girl who was about 5'10 and today struggles to look even 5'9.25,her posture actually suggests a weak 5'9.Well she gained an easy 50-60 lbs during pregnancy, and this sudden weight gain probably created too much strain on her back resulting in height loss and poorer posture.Just remembering how slim and beautiful she looked and the aspect she gives now.It's just terrific,her face now always gives the impression of somebody lacking sleep,I mean really every time I see her,not to speak about legs,chest,arms...pregnancy has completely damaged her body.
As to gaining height?Maybe these women got measured in a hospital,likely in the morning?could be a good explanation.I'm not a doctor but in my opinion a normal pregnancy,without serious complications won't involve neither loss nor gain in height.A typical example is my cousin,always looks the same 171 mark after 2 children.
Dmeyer said on 30/Dec/15
In person was 5'9 she looked 174cm but had near 1,5cm less shoes , 5'8,75-9,25 is arguable
J.Lee said on 29/Dec/15
Rob doesn't being closer to the camera make you seem shorter? When I was measuring in a mirror with a girl, she said I only looked taller because I was standing back. She said when I stand closer to the mirror, the difference is smaller.
Editor Rob
you should be taller, unless the mirror is at a slight angle, or if you are being photographed, the camera is at least a bit lower than the top of the shorter person's head.

If the camera is higher, the person further away can appear a bit taller! Sometimes at red carpet events photos can be all over the place as many of the photographers are standing on a small step.
J.Lee said on 27/Dec/15
Rob are you certain Charlize Theron is taller then Katie? How much could she really be giving up with a loose posture? I just think you're not considering a taller height for Katie. I had to convince you for other girls. Look at this pic with Katie and Tyra banks Click Here Tyra looks to be an inch taller at the most but if u look at footwear u can clearly see that Tyra is wearing higher heels. And I already thought Tyra was taller than 5 ft 10. That pic also leads me to believe that Katie is 5 ft 10. She has another pic with Blake lively and lively is only a fraction taller but is wearing heels that give an extra inch or 2. Clearly Katie looks taller to me after pregnancy,
Editor Rob
in those photos with Tyra she is also a bit nearer the camera and has decent posture.
J.Lee said on 26/Dec/15
Rob, check this out. It looks to me like Katie Holmes did grow taller. I have some pics of her with Jenna Elfman where she was considerably shorter and now they look real close.

Here are some pics in the past where Katie looked much shorter than Elfman. You can tell her head looked smaller too
Click Here
Click Here

Now here are some pics with Jenna Elfman, where she is NO more than a half inch shorter than Elfman and we know Elfman is a very strong 5 ft 10 if not more.

Click Here
Click Here

It seems to me Rob, like Katie did get taller and that explains why now she may be as tall or taller than Charlize as shown in many different photos from different angles. And Taylor Swift is 5 ft 9.5 and didn't look any taller than Katie. And Katie looks almost as tall as 5 ft 10 Jenna Elfman. I would say that Katie Holmes somehow grew a fraction and is now 5 ft 9.5 to 5 ft 10 inches tall.
Editor Rob
you could argue 176cm for her, but I just haven't seen enough to say she definitely was 177 range
J.Lee said on 26/Dec/15
Rob is 5 foot 10 out of question for Kaite (after birth)?
Editor Rob
I can't see her that tall
J.Lee said on 26/Dec/15
Rob. you taught me some crazy things I didn't know. That larger feet could give you more height in heels and that pregnancy could make you taller. Do you think it's possible that Katie Holmes was taller or as tall as Charlize in those photos? Could she have grown to 5 foot 10 after pregnancy? I mean if you look at the photos, you can't say that Charlize is certainly taller. I'm just saying, this is very interesting to think about.
Editor Rob
there is some evidence for the foot, but the height is more on other forums a number of women claiming they have gained height or measured taller.

I think if you search for holmes/elfman, I would say elfman could look a bit taller, how much is debatable, but with Charlize, I'm not sure she was standing as well as Katie.
J.Lee said on 24/Dec/15
Rob, first you say it's the bigger feet and now pregancy? You think Katie Holmes was taller when she was pregnant? How tall?
Editor Rob
some women claim to have gained height after having a kid, it's something that more than 1 or 2 have true it is I don't know, whether the pregnancy somehow altered their spine so they now stand taller I don't know.
J.Lee said on 20/Dec/15
Rob, you said that Holmes never looked 5 ft 10 next to Tom Cruise, but keep in mind he wear heels a lot. We certainly can agree that next to Charlize and Taylor Swift, Holmes looked taller than both of them from multiple angles.
Editor Rob
not really sure she looked taller than Taylor, they could look similar and then in a few angles both could look a bit taller than the other.

It is true though that sometimes women who go through pregnancy can gain a shoe size! Also I've read some rare claims from women who say after having a child that they measured taller!
J.Lee said on 20/Dec/15
Rob are you saying that if you have longer than average feet, you get more height out of your heels?
Editor Rob
we are talking small fractions, but yes, you can get a little more
J.Lee said on 18/Dec/15
Rob. Would you totally rule out Katie Holmes not being at least as tall as Charlize? There are photos from 4 or 5 different angles and I'd be hard pressed to claim Charlize 3/4 of an inch taller than Katie. Plus a couple pics of Katie and Taylor Swift suggest that Katie is as tall, may be slightly taller. You think 5 ft 9.75 is possible?
Editor Rob
she never looked that tall with a guy like Cruise. With longer than average feet and high heels she's getting a decent amount out of some of the footwear she wears.
J.Lee said on 17/Dec/15
Rob she does look taller than Charlize Theron. And Taylor Swift too. I'm thinking she might be 5 ft 10
Editor Rob
I don't know how well charlize is standing. It could account for them appearing close.
Allie said on 27/Oct/15
Given all the pictures here Rob, do you think Katie Holmes is taller than 5'9? She look's taller than Taylor Swift and looks almost on par with Charlize (granted Charlize was crossing her legs, but Katie wasn't standing straight either!) And Blake was only a teeny bit taller but with like an inch platform I'd say. I don't think she's a flat 5'9..
Editor Rob
I wouldn't guess her over 5ft 9, I think a decent enough 5ft 9 who with heels at time can look quite tall.
Jay said on 7/Oct/15
I'd say Katie is over 5'9.
Helen said on 10/Sep/15
I think Katie is clearly taller than 5ft 9in. In every photo I see of her, she towers over any other woman she is with. Here she is with 5ft 10in Charlize Theron, and seems a good inch or so taller:

Tunman said on 15/Aug/15
5'8.5 is really possible.Why claiming 5'8 if she's the full 5'9?
5'9 is tall for sure but not to the point that a woman needs to downgrade herself by 1"
Flashpoint said on 21/Jul/15
In heels, she's almost as tall as Ray Donovan! (Liev Schreiber, 6'3"). So she's definitely at least a strong 5'9"ish + 4" heels = 6'1" or so in heels

Just said on 10/Jun/15
@ T.N.T. To me it's still a mystery why Taylor is listed taller than Katie while Katie is obviously taller than Taylor. Something is off with these listings...
T.N.T. said on 3/Jun/15
Just (12/May/15), you are spot on! In all photos, Katie is taller than Taylor and she never wears those stilts Taylor always wears. Katie is also always slouching whereas Taylor is always posed and tries to place herself a bit in the front for height advantage. Katie may actually be 5ft8-5ft9. No way is Taylor 5ft10, though. Rob, time for a downgrade on Taylor? Surely those photos of her with Karlie and now those with Calvin confirm that her 5ft10-5ft11 and often (LOL) 6ft claims are in the mildest sense ludicrous..
Just said on 12/May/15
Katie only said 5'8 because she's insecure about her height, that's also why she slouches a lot. She's is clearly taller than both Blake Lively and Taylor Swift, so Katie can't be just 5'8.
Judd said on 27/Apr/15
honest 5'9" or at least 5'8.5"...don't know why she replied 5'8"...
Skye said on 24/Apr/15
At least 175. I'd think maybe 174 given what she said, but given how she's taller than ex Tom, she probably slouched or downgraded herself just for him. :).
ling said on 24/Apr/15
I googled many pics of her and tom cruise and she even looked shorter than him in some pictures.. I would say she's 172 at most. Girls look taller than men usually, even if they are of similar heights
Just said on 12/Apr/15
@Chris She has a long torso and LONG athletic legs.
yann said on 19/Mar/15
she's same height as Jamie Foxx , who is ...5'9 too so that seems correct

she looks the same exact height as Jamie Foxx, who is..5'9 too, so 5'9 seems to be her real height

Yeah, she has short and thick legs and a long torso. Not a model figure.

Hoopster says on 19/Oct/13
Nope... all wrong. She just admitted to Couric she is in fact 5' 10". She stated she had a medical check-up a while back and measured her height.
[Editor Rob: did the medical take place in an apartment opposite Bronx Zoo, conducted by a 42 year old man?]

Alex 6'0 said on 12/Sep/14
Closer to 5'9 than 5'8 I feel. Both are tall heights for a girl though
Connor183 said on 23/Aug/14
Rob is 5ft 8 and a 1/2 more likely for Katie than the full 5ft 9?
Editor Rob
there is a chance of that mark, but I think she can pull of near enough 5ft 9
Jenny said on 12/Aug/14
Katie Holmes was an inch taller than Taylor Swift in the recent pics!!!
Kresh said on 12/Aug/14
Katie Holmes has the same height as Taylor Swift.

If she is 5'8" that means taylor swift is 5'8 to 5'9 or 1.73m to 1.75m

Downgrade Taylor Swift!
Guy said on 28/Jul/14
In batman she looked like 173-175 next to Bale
Just said on 10/Jun/14
I think Katie is one of those girls who's ashamed of her height, that's why she slouches a lot and claims to be shorter than she really is. Compared to other celebrities like Jenna Elfman, Cate Blanchett, Cameron Diaz and Blake Lively she looks taller than 5'9.
Bishop said on 5/Jun/14
Her 5'8" claim kind of rules out 5'9" for me. 5'8.5", maybe?
mike said on 29/May/14
Rob, why list her 5ft 9 if she claimed 5ft 8? maybe put her in the middle like 174.

Compare to 5'10 Jenna Elfman, Katie can look 5'9"5.

i've stood next to her and she was quite tall (I'm 5'11" and my general impression is she was 5'10" or so but I didn't note what kind of shoes she was wearing at the time).
truth said on 17/Feb/14
the fact that she said 5ft8 later on makes me think 5ft8.5 (174cm).
Hannah said on 23/Jan/14
She not 165 cm you don't know what on earth your talking about. This kind of stuff irritates me for some reason, how would she look taller than 5'7" Tom Cruise if she was 5'5"???? She's 5'9" end off story she quite tall. Yeah she wear shoes like any normal person does. What do you think that adds 4 unless she's wearing heels but there have been several pictures pictures with her ex Tom and she's clearly taller.

@Gustavo If Katie is 165 cm, how short is Blake Lively, since Katie is taller than Blake?
Gustavo said on 28/Dec/13
Katie holmes is 165 cm! and tom cruise is 172 cm. Please look good the pictures van katie holmes
175 cm is not posible she have shoes

@Hoopster - could you post the link to the interview with Couric?
elf said on 15/Nov/13
She's about 5'9"
lelman said on 11/Nov/13
@Hoopster, medical checkups seem to be the lease accurate ways of measuring height, god knows why. After a medical checkup with my GP a few months ago, he somehow recorded my height as 185cm, despite me being only about 180.

I honestly think it was a guess, haha.
the shredder said on 31/Oct/13
If she is 5'10 than Tom is near 5'9. I think she is 5'9 ish.
Hoopster said on 19/Oct/13
Nope... all wrong. She just admitted to Couric she is in fact 5' 10". She stated she had a medical check-up a while back and measured her height.
Editor Rob
did the medical take place in an apartment opposite Bronx Zoo, conducted by a 42 year old man?
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 14/Oct/13
Balrog, yea if Katie is 5'8-5'8 1/2 then what do you give Tom? he is a bit shorter than her even when they are both in flatter footwear.
Just said on 12/Oct/13
This height seems right for her, 5 foot 9.
I think she's insecure of her height that's why she slouches a lot and downgrades her height.
She doesn't have short legs. Her legs are long and very toned.
Balrog said on 11/Oct/13
Agree with Alex. 173-174cm for this honest and beautiful lady.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 9/Oct/13
The fact she has claimed 5'8 rules out 5'9 for me. 5'8-5'8 1/2 she is
Sain t said on 1/Sep/13
What? How does Katie not have a picture!?! C-mon, Rob she is complete eyecandy. Oh yah the height... listing sounds good.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 30/Aug/13
This listing is spot on. 5'9" is perfect female height IMO.

She stands her ground against her leading men and is always a little taller than tom cruise.

Emily you're clueless. Her legs are long and beautiful.

She´s tall but she has very unfortunate short and thick legs. I´d rather be shorter with long and lean legs instead of the reverse.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 14/Dec/12
She's around this listed height and she's absolutely perfect.
tall girl too said on 19/Nov/12
You can't judge by sight and pictures. I'm 5'9.5 and everyone thinks I'm taller. So unless you measure her physically, you can't say..and most heels 3" and vary and can make her 6ft easy... btw I'm also taller than my husband 2-3"....this is okay for them considering the view they get lol
Hob said on 6/Aug/12
she confused her height. she would have been measure about 5'9 morning and 5'8-1/4 for night. this consider she should claim 5'8.5

Rob , do you see under 5'9 ?
Editor Rob
at times she can look maybe weak 5ft 9

In the barefoot photo of her and Tom, Tom's 1-2 inches shorter. If she's 5'8/5'9 he's about 5'6-5'7.

To fit Tom cruise at 5'7 .

173-174cm sound about right no more than that
Conspicuous said on 28/Dec/11
I love how whenever there's proof that Tom Cruise is 5'7" flat, Katie Holmes gets boosted up to 5'9" just to make the claim that he's 5'7.75" more believable.
clint said on 21/Dec/11
I'd say 5'9" to 5'9.5". Tom Cruise is no more than 5'7" to 5'7.5" and maybe only 5'6.5", making him 2 or 3 inches shorter than his wife.
SIlent d said on 1/Dec/11
5 foot 9 and attractive!
the shredder said on 30/Nov/11
Rob , how do you know if the 5'8 claim is for real ? It was in a chat room to where the 5'9 seems more realistic !
Editor Rob
sometimes as people get more famous they round up, other times they may fall in between and round down. She can look at times in the past 5ft 8,8.5 and 9!
Dmeyer said on 28/Nov/11
I met Katie she looked 3 in shooter than me but i had more shoes 5'9 bang on
lala said on 26/Nov/11
i was watching Fashion Police and some editor who did a photoshoot with katie said she was 5'10! no doubt katie is tall and sometimes does look 5'10+.but i think she is 5'9.NO WAY is she a flat 5'8.have you seen Abandon or The Gift? katie is taller than gabrielle union 5'8 AND cate blanchett 5'8.5
Alex said on 25/Nov/11
Shaun, thats what I was thinking. She has claimed both 5'8 and 5'9 making me think shes 5'8 and change OR that shes 5'8 barefoot and 5'9 in footwear. Some people claim height like that too. I def wouldn't go under 5'8 flat for her so Cruise would be no more than 5'7
Silent d said on 11/Nov/11
Did you see how tall and hot she was the late show with david letterman? David letterman rarely looks same height with a girl. I think she had 5 inch heels on but she was a bit shorter than 187cm letterman. I could live with 5 foot 9. She is clearly taller than cruise who in my opinion is 172cm. She stands her own and she is not a salad girl. She keeps getting more attractive every day.
LAN Jiao said on 4/Nov/11
i watch don't be afraid of the dark she atually look near 2" shorter than 5'10 claim guy pearce whose in 1.3-1.4" footwear and katie in smaller sneakers. so she might be 5'9 morning, 5'8.5 noon night stuff..
Shaun said on 21/Oct/11
Her dad looks pretty tall, probably around my height range, 6'1" or 6'2".
Shaun said on 21/Oct/11
If she's claimed 5'9 and 5'8", the chances are she is 5'8.5". But that would mean Cruise would have to be downgraded to 5'7.25".
Shaun said on 21/Oct/11
Her mother to me looks like she'd be nearer 5'7" range than 6'. You can spot the resemblance of Katie with her father though.
Alex said on 21/Oct/11
Shes a solid 5'8 girl

LAN Jiao said on 14/Oct/11
Had a feeling why she claim 5'8-5'9 both range. She could be on a medical measure morning at 5'9 and a home measure maybe by tom at 173.5cm so rounded down 5'8.
gabe said on 25/Sep/11
i dont know why every seems to think cruise is short. hes barely below average height. I think people are jealous of his money looks and success so they try to pick on him to make themselves feel better.
Phil said on 23/Sep/11
Rob, do you consider to downgrade Katie's height? Come on Rob.
5 foot 8 and a half is still pretty tall for a woman.
@vika said on 22/Sep/11
The angle of the picture is closed up on him. And shes atleast 1-2 feet away,making her appear short. Duh
Phil said on 22/Sep/11
Rob, 5 foot 8 and a half would be fair and more accurate, because she said 5 foot 8 and 5 foot 9.
Legend said on 22/Sep/11
I've seen a girl who works at a place I frequent sometimes that looks like Katie Holmes a little bit. She's even the same height from the looks of it. Maybe I should say something to her. Anyway, I think Holmes is 5'8 range like the girl I'm talking about.
Wide not tall said on 28/Aug/11
I doubt Katie's a full 5-9, I would give her 5'8.25.
Physics Enemy said on 27/Aug/11
If Katie is actually 5' 8" (seems like it to me) then Cruise should be listed 5' 6.75". There's a 1.25" difference currently listed on here between the two. I actually think the difference is 1.5" though. Tom usually has 0.25" posture advantage.
mcfan said on 10/Aug/11
OK, I saw her on Jimmy Fallon. In my view, Jimmy is only 5'11 and 6'0 in his shoes. Katie was wearing heels with no visible platform, unless I didn't see it, giving her 3.25 inches of height. They seemed pretty equal in height with Jimmy being a 1/4 inch taller than Katie in his 1-inch loafers and her 2.25 shoe-height advantage. I'd say Katie is 5.8.5 max, which is most likely why she answered 5'8 and 5'9 as her height.
Sully said on 13/Jun/11
Cruise knows hes short. How many barefoot pictures do you see of him?
Heck, its even rare to see him in shorts these days. Holmes has more than 2 inches on him. So, if you are going to list Cruise at 5'7.75, then u might as well give this girl 5'10.
Alex said on 11/Jun/11
Ehh 5'7.5 may be pushing it a bit too low. I wouldn't go under 5'8 for her. Shes a tall girl.
Viper said on 7/Jun/11
I can agree with 5-7.5
truth said on 6/Jun/11
shes 5ft7.5 and cruise 5ft6.75 hahaha take that up yer arse.
Alex said on 29/May/11
She can look 5'8 or 5'9 but since she has claimed both I am going to say shes like 5'8 1/2 which makes Cruise 5'7
Legend said on 24/May/11
She's 5'8.25 MAX and yes a quarter inch is a big difference.

Tom Cruise is 5'7.

If she herself is claming 5'8. I dont think anyone should add an inch or two to that. In fact this is one of the most honest celebrity height that someone has ever claimed.
But I m afraid for cameron daiz if katie is 5'8 then she would be quite shorter. Katie has always been min 2 inches taller that her.

ruth said on 1/Nov/10
That's funny you say that. That's because most of the time this is true. They are actually shorter than published. Regular people do it all the time as well (lie about their height). I am truthful about my height (5' 5.5"), but other ppl are always telling me that I am wrong and that I am taller, because then that degrades their height claim. My guess is Katie Holmes must be 5'7" or 5'8" at the most. Tom Cruise is short!

she is your typical tall beautiful person, she could easily have been a model with that face and body.
Now if you will call 175 cm normal or tall or extremely tall I dont care. Coz most supermodels are that height and they are seen as out of this world beauties.
You would never call Adriana Lima or some other VS model a MONSTER!
5'4 is average is US..okei maybe thats why most supermodels dont come from there!

My height is 5'10(120cm)without shoes.i saw tom cruise in shopping mall.he looks minimum 1.5 inches short than me he wears high top shoes(with 2 inches) and i wear simple topless i guess his real height is between 5'7 to 5'8 but his body and face shape is good so he looks more his actual height is 5'8 or may be 5'7 lets guess about the katie many pic i saw tom cruise looks little shorter than katie.the reason is katie wears top heels 3inches or more so she looks like 5'10 to 5'11.if you less 3 inches the real height of katie is 5'7to 5'8.i think they are same heights of may be katie is little longer.see the proof in this website Click Here

"Does Katie not think that 5'9" is tall? 5'9" is very tall for a woman. The average height of a women in America is 5'3.8" but round that up to 5'4"-

bella said on 6/Dec/08
It's funny because when I first read how tall she was (some time ago) I couldn't believe it because she is not willowy (not naturally anyway) and she is not a gangly, leggy type, so she does not give off a tall/long appearance. But I did ultimately see her in person (on Perry Street), we were both wearing boot-like heals and we were just about the exact same height. I'm 5'8.5," but because I'm all arms and legs, people often think I'm taller. So 5'8.5" seems right, although I don't think her legs are very long.
anonymous said on 30/Nov/08
She's definately a tall 5 foot 9.
DG said on 25/Nov/08
I saw her in an elevator in NYC. She had on high heels that made her at least 6 feet. I'm 5'10" and she definitely had 2" on me. So without high heels I would say 5'9" is a good guess. She seemed very sweet.
Maribel said on 21/Nov/08
I guess 5"8.75.
Alex said on 20/Nov/08
She has claimed both 5'8 and 5'9. You would likely think she is closer to the lower height she has said but she could be as much as 5'9. A weak 5'9 she is maybe?
anonymous said on 21/Oct/08
I know how the metric system works. I'm just exagerrating a bit. I rephrase my estimate to 5foot 9 because she's taller than 170. She looks taller than 170. She's about 2 inches taller than tom cruise.
The Horse of FUNK said on 17/Oct/08
For once I agree with Viper on something. I think Holmes is 5'8.25". I don't know why she was listed 5'8" pretty much everywhere, even after she's admitted it as her height, but suddenly she's up to 5'9". But, of course, if you downgraded her you'd have to downgrade Tom Cruise to 5'7" flat, which would be blasphemy on here.
sp said on 16/Oct/08
anonymous, 180cm is like 5'11. she's definitely not 5'11. i think you mean 170, which is 5'7 or so.? or maybe you just don't really know how the metric system works...

I say she's about at most 180cm because on the late show she had really long legs and was nearly as tall as david lettermen who is 188cm.
