Tom and her really are close in height. Both five foot seven barefoot despite his listing on here

@gaur Tom isn't much taller than her, if he looks it it's mostly from Hollywood trickery

Rob, Tom looks much taller in movies why did she said this.
Editor Rob
On set maybe she felt they really were close in height.

Maybe 5’ 6 1/2”. She’s really skinny, so looks taller.

Btw, I love her quote saying that co-star Tom Cruise is 5’7”. Busted, Tom!!

At least one of Michelle Monaghan and Tom Cruise (or maybe not!) are likely to be 5'7", but who?

She look right listing next to Ben Stiller.

Maybe 5'6.75"?

She's tall-ish, but not quite tall. Her slender build makes her seem taller than she is.

She is very close to 5'7"!

She looks like she was born in 1968 instead of 1976

Cruise comfortably in his 2-2.5' hidden lifts. In opposite way Monaghan is right at 5'7 and cruise 5'6.75

Michelle Monaghan : 5' 6.5"
Tom Cruise: 5'7"

You can see pics of Monaghan and Cruise standing side-by-side at the Mission Impossible premiere, with Monaghan in heels and Cruise in dress shoes (i.e. 1.5" footwear edge to Monaghan), and she's about 1" taller than him there.

tom cruise is taller when they both wear flats, mainly because he is not 5ft7, but more a 5ft8.25. She clearly went with the myth of his height, irrespective of working with him. Plenty of people can't juge height even when they stand next to people.

It is no myth, Tom Cruise is shorter than most think, he is surely not 5ft8.25. Take a good look at the shoes he uses at events and galas. He always uses lifts (2.75 inches) I know because I use them all the time. When using lifts your feet have a pronounced slope so the part where the laces go in most shoes is tilted forward.

All the comments are in italics FYI...if a bit too skinny at times, she's totally gorgeous. The picture above doesn't quite do her justice and she looked better than ever in True Detective. The 5'7" listing does seem dead-on.
Editor Rob
I fixed the italic tag thanks

She's sooooo good in True Detective on HBO. I think ppl are finally noticing her in a big way.

And yes, 5'7" does seem right. She is however very slim, which may make her seem a bit taller than she really is.
Carter said on 25/Jan/14
Rob, didn't you used to have her a bit higher? What made you downgrade her?
Editor Rob
she'd been this height for a good few years
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jan/14
She did look a very similar height to Tom Cruise in MI 3 but I think Cruise was a bit taller.

In Eagle eye she isn't much shorter than Shia Labeouf 5'7 seems right...
Neil said on 1/May/09
I think she could be 5'8 or maybe bigger.

Just watching heartbreak kid on tv at the moment and shes towering over 5'7 ben stiller

Just saw her on my flight from LAX to ORD. Stood next to her for a long time. She is at least 5'7.

so that prove tom isnt under 5'7 to 5'7.5 since he even look taller than her
kay said on 5/Aug/06
standing next to tom cruise she looks a good 2 inches shorter than him, but the numbers say otherwise
oz said on 18/Feb/06
every where lists this north country star as 5'8 but it can't be true, just look at her standing next to charlize in North Country! She consistently looks about a foot smaller, or at least 4-5 inches. Watch North Country, there is no doubt.
