I think he's shorter. People literally point him out, and label "short" he is and literally call him a "midget" by people and actors on many occasions. He's 5'6. And like vin diesel, rare to see him without thick shoes. 168-169cm for me.

5'7 and a half (171.5cm), anything under is a joke. People are underlisting him.

Then explain me why Tom in same parachute shoes than James Corden is clearly shorter than him,James looking 5"7' range next to many guys ...(Michael Douglas Matthew Horne Samuel Anderson ...)

But Leonardo by comparisons is not 181 but more 177/ 178

Nah - No chance of Dicaprio being under 180. Easy 6ft in shoes. He even looks 180 in your carefully selected pics. Cruise is standing close to 5'10 in his footwear.


Ahahah! = "carefully selected pics" = I chose pics here with guys at around the same distance to the camera and neutral angle,not this curious pics with very low angles and Leonardo one foot closer to the camera than Prince Albert...If you claim 180 for Leonardo you have to claim around 6"1' for 50 cent, that he's never ! To repeat your expression in a recent comment= "Good luck!"lol

1.70cm is accurate if he was really 1.72 then his agency would have claimed 1.75

Tom has claimed 5'9 - I can believe that in a standard shoe.He looks it. 5'10 in enhanced footwear Click Here


But Leonardo by comparisons is not 181 but more 177/ 178 =
Leonardo and Prince Albert = Click Here Click Here

50 cent 182 cm /Prince Albert = Click Here Click Here

Plus Leonardo slouch in Parker's pic = Click Here = here Tom straight Leonardo slouching a bit again = Tom by this comparisons looks like 172/173 ,less very probably good helps.Then probably around 5"6'again

It’s great that Tom is comfortable with his own height and I know he would encourage everyone else to be too!

Here are some fascinating facts:

Tom was born on the 3rd July (3/7) and he is 57 (5’7”?) so it is ironic that he has 3757 (37 (5’7”?)) comments!

Also the average guess is 170.7 cm and he has 787 votes!

You are going to have to downgrade the whole of celebheights to match your 5'5 range estimate for Cruise - Good luck with that mate.


Thanks.Probably not 5"5',more 5"6' by all this pics.Who knows.

@Parker = Charlize Theron and 5"11.5' Bill Paxton ( Click Here ) = even in big heels she's always clearly shorter than him = Click Here ...logically at 5"10' she would be a bit taller than him here.... Click Here ...She's maybe the same height as Rob in fact by this comparisons....That explain why Katie Holmes with giant heels can be taller than her ...but easily shorter than max 5"9'Serena Williams in same heels as her...
Click Here = other event always with advantageous woman heel...
Pierre said on 28/Feb/20
But Katie Holmes has a big advantage of heel with his stilettos next to Charlize ,easily more than an inch imo.

And now here is Charlize supposed 5"10' next to Stephen Colbert.She wear big heels but no taller than him =(at around 0:22 same distance to the camera) = Click Here .By this comparisons she's maybe 5"8' ...And Katie had a big advantage of shoes next to her...

Stephen Colbert and Barack(6"0.75') = Click Here

Charlize by this comparisons is never even close to 5"10'.In Stilettos she's around the same height as Stephen Colbert himself max 5"10'

@Parker = Jamie Foxx supposed 5"9' next to Leonardo = Click Here
Leonardo and 5"10' Arnold = Click Here
Arnold and his daughter listed 5"9' = Click Here

To me Jamie Foxx wear lifts sometimes like here = Click Here and then can pass for a 5"9' guy sometimes...but next to Katie Holmes he's probably in classic shoes like here = Click Here ...Finally this never means Katie is 5"9' or nearly this mark ...

Here is Serena next to her sister Venus listed 6"0.5' = Click Here = Serena by this comparison is big max 5"9' ,and so Katie Holmes closer to 5"7' than to 5"9'.
Parker said on 24/Feb/20
Zero chance of Katie Holmes being under 5'8 IMO- Plenty of pics of her on the net looking taller than 5'9 listed Jamie Foxx. Serena has claimed 5'9 and 5'10, not unreasonable to think she could be 5'9.5 - Average guess has her over 5'9. Katie could be 5'8.5, so its [possible there is an inch between them

Whatever she is (Katie), Cruise is less than an inch shorter.

Obsessed With Height said on 22/Feb/20
Actually I changed my mind about Tom being 5’6
After looking at more photos and doing more digging, I got the impression of him looking between (170.5 - 171)
Since he looked 5’8.5 next to Katie Holmes who was wearing very flat shoes
He’d look 170-ish cm considering that Timberlands usually add about 4 cm to your height
So (5’7.15)
No more, no less

But Katie holmes looks a lot shorter than Serena Williams herself 5"9' = Click Here Click Here = in this pic Serena in poor posture,looks always taller than Katie.
Click Here = here Katie a bit closer to the camera and in better posture than Serena looks again shorter than Serena ...
Katie Holmes by this comparison is under 5"8'

170 is ridiculious.

Click Here

He can appear 5'9" in this entire clip. Zero chance tom is less than a 5'7.5 at a very low.
Granted he is probably in a lift here, but its more a matter of proportion. A 5'7 flat guy would never look like this near a near 6fter like fallon


But Jimmy Fallon is probably a lift wearer and was very probably in regular shoes next to Tom Cruise.And he's to me a lot under 6"0' =
Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert = Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here

Stephen Colbert /barack 6"0.5' = Click Here Click Here Click Here

The video James Corden Tom Cruise parachute is a good proof = Tom Cruise in classic shoes is shorter by a good inch than James Corden.James Corden next to Michael Douglas looks max 5"7' and next thing next to Matthew Horne = Tom is logicaly max 5"6'.

The 5'7 or below claims are ridiculous. He could definitely pass for 5'8 in his prime, but might have lost a fraction over the years through injuries from all the stunts. 5'7 3/4 is fair.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Feb/20
Wow! Absolute WOW! I have just turned on my telly after a nap - with an amazing dream! - to catch the last half-hour of 'Vanilla Sky'. It's one film of Tom's I have yet to see and, apart from it being star-studded, the plot looks very melancholy and deep. I've seen Kurt Russell and Penelope Cruz among the cast members, and they will be superb measuring sticks for to compare Tom's height. Yes, I'm going to buy this film. Until then, I will give Tom 5ft7.75. There is a guy in this, shorter than Tom, who's just said, "Remember in life, the sweet is never sweet without the sour!" (Or words to that effect). 🌌🌅

Never has a truer word been spoken....
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Jan/20
No way Tom ever wear anything under 1.5" thick below his feet ever since 90s movie. All Mission Impossible film he probably wear those standard 2-2.25" elevator and some casual style he would wear 1.75-2" filming with taller actors. Click Here when elevator lift help Tom look 1" taller than 5'8 Christian Slater while Pitt decided not to wear his lift in his hey days with Tom.
Peter175 said on 27/Jan/20
It's funny how people can say 5'11 Kidman and 5'6 Cruise in the same sentence. She's not more than 3 inches taller than him at most. (More like 2.5 ish)
Pierre said on 26/Jan/20
@Dmeyer = If Tom wear even soft elevator shoes , they are giving always easily more than 1.25 inch,just classic shoes give you about 1.25 inch.

Here he is with 5'7 listed Michael Pena.

5'7,5-7,75 is his range 171,5-172cm , if he was 173 with just boots or small elevators he will look 5'9-9,5 , but can oftenly just look 174 with thik shoes or small lifts 5'7 flat is too low and 5'8-8,25 to high arguable is 171-172,5 , on some occasions can look as tall as 175-6cm but mostly apears 171-174cm depending on shoes , also i met the guy he looked solid 175cm while his elevator wasnt huge so 172 peak is bang on

You really think it's a coincidence if a 70/75 years old Mickael Douglas not even straight in the pic looks always easily taller than him?

Show me a full length pic of Douglas and Corden and I'll comment - not one where you don't see their feet.



I don't find pics of their shoes then Michael maybe wear elevator shoes...= Here are pics Matthew Horne listed 5"6' next to James Corden = James Corden in Air max so no less than 3 cm help = the shoes= Click Here Both around same posture = Click Here Click Here Click Here .
Hum...not sure Michael wear elevator shoes finally.

He definitely wears lifts and wen not lifts he always wears heels that look smaller due the side so Im saying maximum 5'7" but 5'6" most likely.

I wrote Gwyneth looks around the same height as James Corden and so she's probably under her 5"9' list to me.

Fair enough, its all about opinions on this site. 5'8 for Tom......in my opinion.

I have no idea why so many people are out to get Tom. Everyone thinks he is 5'6" and has issues with taller people. I have never seen any evidence that proves such things.

Indeed, good luck to him he seems a nice guy considering he is one of the most famous people on the planet.

To me Tom Cruise is 5’8 max. I’ve seen him next to an old Arnold whom is struggling to scrape 6’ nowadays and still he’s some inches shorter. 5’8 Max for him
Johan 185 cm said on 16/Dec/19
He never has seemed that bothered to me being around taller co-stars. He just wears footwear for a boost so it looks good for pics/camera, thats what i think.

I mean Kidman/Holmes are both tall women and he had no issue. He has done lots of movies with taller guys, Tom isn't one of those stars who refuses to star opposite someone because of height.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Dec/19
Yes, I noticed that, Ian! Kubrick had a habit of using tall, slender women for his nude scenes and I thought it was all part of the Kubrickesque effects.

I'm glad you mentioned that film because I have always wanted to watch it at Christmas and as that time is upon us now, 'Eyes Wide Shut' has just gone up to the top of my list. 😁🎄

⭐ My boyfriend's ex's father knew Stanley, and he was a very generous man, especially at Christmas, when he'd send his friends crates of the very best wine!

Tom gets 5ft7.75.
Ian C. said on 15/Dec/19
In Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, no attempt was made to make Cruise seem taller. He walks around in a forest of women, all of whom are taller than he is (at least in heels). Since Kubrick was famously conscious of every detail in his movies, this must have been deliberate. (Also the incomprehensible plot. Movies that can't be understood from the exposition given in them, like 2001 or The Shining, are something of a Kubrickian practical joke.)

Tom wears elevators, lifts etc but the guy doesn’t have a problem being barefoot beside people with shoes on.
This says a lot about him. I don’t think Sly or Brad would ever do this.

I agree Hijo- And if Katie Holmes is the 5'9 listed on this site, Tom is clearly closer to 5'8 than 5'7

Believe it or not I actually saw him up close and I don't think he's a short guy. Some like to pretend he's a tiny fella but I think near 5ft8 seemed believable to me.

He never seemed short to me I was told he was 5'4 when I was younger though when I watched minority report and other movies he seems really average height like he made Colin Farrell look five nine in minority report.

FiveEightJake said on 16/Nov/19
Rob I watched your video on Cruise and though it was done with humour mostly it is interesting how when things start to get said about somebody then everybody just rocks with it it’s actually quite dangerous. I’m glad Tom seems to be quite a confident guy.

And on the YouTube videos Rob, I think you should do more videos like that, you have an amazing personality, your humour is amazing. The height videos of single celebrities with the music are a bit simplistic and old fashioned in my opinion. You have a lot to offer, more than you maybe know ;)
Editor Rob
I did try to add a bit of humour to the topic of Tom 😉 I still think the media are a bit unfair on his height at times. 5ft 5-6 is insane for him.

in 2018 I only put up 2 videos on youtube, but starting in January this year I wanted to experiment with a few different types. 30 second height chart videos were a replacement for the mugshot 'mouseover' option on this site, because it is easier to make mugcharts appear behind subjects when doing it in short clip format.

I do plan one more longer video (about Sly) this month, but for 2020, we'll see!

Here is a Link for anybody who hasn't watched my Tom video.

Oh, and another more recent one about Ben Shapiro 😲

An interesting tidbit - it seems youtube does not like ben or 'political commentators' because that video was demonitized automatically on upload! 'ben shapiro' must trigger youtube 😂

Looking at Penelope next to Woody Allen and Scarlett Johansson on Google it would suggest 5' and 5'6 are both unrealistic heights for her. You can't see her heel, but 5'3/5'4 would be a better guess. She looks 5 inches shorter than Cruise, so 5'3 woud be in line with the average guess for Cruise on this site.

I think the highest arguable height for him is 5'8. In good footwear he can pass as a 5'9 guy.

It's fair to say he's been a lift wearer through his career, but never to Stallone/Vin Diesel levels.

5'0 for Penelope Cruz is more realistic than 5'6.

Please don't lie. He can't be 5'5 max. The very least is at least 5'6 1/2 could convince people and say he wear 2.5" elevator shoes. I do think Tom is only 5'7 barefoot not sure below that.

wath botters me is that cruise is defenetly near 172cm as he could look 175 in person while in shoes that werent so big , considering most people add 1in to theyr height plus the fact he has lifts sometimes so could apear to people anywere 5'7-5'10 , how come he gets listed 5'7 flat on the net , its like listing sly at 57,75-8in at peak for example

Tall Sam said on 23/Oct/19
Cruise can certainly seem a little height conscious for sure and filmmakers play to that to make him seem more like 5'9", which is how he refers to himself, than his actual height, though he has not been caught in as flagrant lifts as the similar heighted Robert Downey Jr.
Paddy73 said on 22/Oct/19
There always seems to be a fixation with Tom Cruise height doesn’t there (that’s why we are here after all! ) .. they defo seem to use some kind of trickery in some of his movies, often depending on who he is co starring alongside. I watched the film ‘ American made’ the other day and because Cruise is often in scenes alone or far away from the other actors he seemed to be a 5.7 sort of height range. The giveaway is his proportions . Can use special shoes as much as poss but... can never hide the fact you have short arms .. torso etc . If indeed short. I know as am also about 5.7 !. What I am wondering though is at pushing 60 years old .. do you not think Tom Cruise May be experiencing some shrinkage by now Rob? Or indeed is he going to get away with it somewhat because he generally stays extremely fit and the same weight throughout the years. The guy doesn’t look like he’s put on more than half a stone since Top Gun in 1986 despite the lifts and heels.
Editor Rob
A mid 50s guy might not have lost height...but, with the amount of work and physicality Tom puts into his roles a small fraction isn't impossible now.

@Parker= " LOL " = I just comment on what i see and try to be logic.No problem if you desagree with me!...Curiously you don't comment on my recent comment with comparisons/pictures Michael Douglas/James Corden/Samuel Anderson/Tom Cruise in classic sneakers this time....you probably prefer comment on pics with Tom wearing event shoes... Tom's shoes are looking classic next to Pablo?!First = they are looking very high shoes then possibility to insert an internal heel....(The particularity of good elevator shoes is= as discreet as possible....)The stadiometer that measured Pablo Moto's 166.5 cm is maybe the same type of stadiometer that measured Arnold 188 .....Rob listed him 164,5 =clearly under the measure of the stadiometer....(read Rob's comment about the stadiometer in Pablo's page...)And 164.5 is maybe even a bit generous for him...second = The guy who measured Pablo with his fingers = logically the measure that you have to read is the measure just under the fingers not over the fingers = Click Here = then it means Pablo is around 162 not 165 as you write....And the guy with his fingers is maybe even a bit generous .....No difficult for a guy around 5"6' wearing elevator shoes to looks like a giant next to a 162 guy.....
Parker said on 12/Oct/19
@Pierre LOL. Is there any celebrity on the site that you think Rob has underlisted?

Here's Pablo Motos getting measured barefoot at around 165. Check out his page. In footwear he would have to be close to 5'6

Tom shoes look standard. He'd have to be wearing stilts to give a height difference like that if he was under 5'7.

MJKoP said on 4/Apr/18
Look at the above picture. If Cruise is not a full 5'8", then he's just a touch under it at WORST

Totally agree.
Editor Rob
There won't be much in footwear difference, I doubt more than a few mm's, though Tom did gain some height being nearer camera.
Pierre said on 11/Oct/19
Comments Rising 174cm = Click Here = James Corden is clearly tiptoeing next to Samuel Anderson and clearly has finally an advantage on Samuel Anderson who is standing in more relaxed posture in comparison with the pic next to Rob = Click Here =James Corden is making every effort to be as all as possible for the pic while Samuel Anderson loses a bit height for the pic.James Corden is clearly shorter than Rob by this comparisons of postures,that explain imo why he looks clearly easily shorter than Mickael Douglas(who has very probably lost height by the years),even if maybe ? Mickael wear some lifts = Click Here .And Mickael break a lot his posture here.The comparison Tom next to James Corden in the video is imo the most sure because they do parachute jumping =then, in contrary to events, no possibility to wear lifts here imo(video with my comment on 24 august)=Tom is shorter than James Corden who is himself shorter than Rob.Tom is a bit under 5"7' imo
Rising174cm said on 7/Oct/19
Michael Douglas is closer to the camera, it's not a good angle and we can't see their feet. I'm 100% sure James Corden is taller than Douglas these days because Douglas can look only 5'7" himself at 74-75, but if you see this recent appearance on Corden's show, Douglas looks to be wearing lifts: Click Here

Also, there's no indication Corden was tip-toeing with Anderson and is in fact leaning/slouching himself more than Anderson. Either way, Corden doesn't look under 172 cm there and standing straight, he's much more likely 173 range.

As for Tom, he's always clearly been around 5'7.5". He's shorter than true 5'8" guys like Sean Penn, James Corden, Zac Efron and Jeremy Renner, but clearly taller than 5'7" flat guys like Michael Pena and pretty much identical in height to 5'7.5" peak Steven Spielberg as well as about the same height as 171 cm guys like Jerry Bruckheimer and Lewis Hamilton, though definitely not taller than Hamilton. Of course, Tom wears lifts most of the time and when he does, he can look more like 5'8.5".

That’s a disgusting comment from Paul O’Grady don’t you think Rob, that doesn’t sound like something he would say. Was a fan but might need to revise my opinion of him.

Cruise isn’t that short, although probably overlisted by big Rob he’s no less than 5’7.

Honestly Tom had a 5'5.75" frame but look to be 5'8.5" max in comparison with celebrities but thinking of elevator helps him. He is def under 5'7.75" barefoot. 5'7.25" is the most i can think of him being measured.
Pierre said on 13/Sep/19
The pics of Parker are pics with Tom very probably wearing lifts(I posted recently in Leonardo's page here comparisons with -imo- good pics that show me Leonardo is max 5"10') .In my comparison We have a pic with the whole bodies of Rob/Samuel Anderson and the whole bodies Samuel Anderson/James Corden very close one to the other one.And we have finally James Corden and Tom close one to the other one. My guess is always clearly under 5"7' to me .(Harrison Ford to me was 5"11' peak and under now = here in the 1990s= a mugshot inwhich he very probably wear shoes= Click Here =that give around 5"11' barefoot and very probably under now ).

Man in Black said on 11/Sep/19
I think the listing is spot on, although I think it's probably morning height/peak height. When you're a strong 5'7.5" you only have to add 2.2 inches to your footwear to look a weak 5'10" perceptibly. In movies you can trick that even more as we know. In his earlier movies I dont think he had to wear anything apart from a thicker heel. On red carpets Cruises girlfriends have all been at least 5'9 which is tall for a girl, and doesn't help his cause, and that's where where the elevator shoes come into play.

Pierre said on 10/Sep/19
@Dmeyer = James Corden looks taller next to other celebrities but other celebrities have sometimes their official height a little bit rounded up ....Michael Douglas maybe wear advantageous shoes in the pic next to James Corden,but he break his posture and looks always clearly taller than him,and Michael Douglas is maybe a little bit under 5"8' now.
Imo the comparisons i posted on 24 August are more indicative of the real height of James Corden = Samuel Anderson is not standing in an advantageous posture in the pic next to James,Rob is standing in a poorer posture than Samuel in the pic ...but the differences of heights are the same...Then logically by considering the postures,James is clearly shorter than Rob imo

@Wolfman: I believe you. I'm also short: less than an inch taller than you are. I've also seen Vincent Cassel in person, ran into him by an ATM machine in Paris. I swear he's only average height. Nothing like the 6'1+ Rob has him at. Actress heights tend to be less inflated I think. I've crossed paths with Sophie Marceau, as well, and she seemed Rob's listing more or less. I've seen Tom Cruise in person, but I was a small kid at the time so couldn't really judge, although even then, I could make out he was shorter than average.
Wolfman said on 27/Jul/19
Go with two guys who had no stake in the game: Bill Goldman and Gore Vidal. They both spent years in H'wood writing screenplays and both remarked constantly about the shocking shortness of male movie stars. (Read Vidal's seven-novel US history cycle and in the latter four books he spends a lot of page time on this, with fictional movie settings and fictional stars discussing this phenomenon.) … I grew up next door to a guy who went on to spend ten seasons in the NBA, about half that in Sacramento and Oakland. The first party I went to with him, in L.A., was in 1994. Cruise was there. I'm short: 5-feet-5 and one-half inches, barefoot. Cruise was maybe an inch taller than me. Eddie Murphy was there, too; also a very short guy, just slightly taller than Cruise. In New York one night we got on an elevator and there was Bruce Willis. Smaller frame than I imagined, thinner through the shoulders, and a big head. Didn't look six feet tall. My NBA buddy is 6-feet-9, and his brother is a legit 5-11, played tailback at Syracuse. Willis was not as tall as the brother, who was there with us. … Unless these actors were former athletes, like Dwayne Johnson, they're almost always tiny people.

💝😁🎁🎂 Happy Birthday Tom! 🎂🎁😁💝

Yes, it's one of our biggest film star's Birthdays today; it happens to be that of Tom Cruise. Today, our boy turns 57, and still looks the bee's knees! 🐝

My favourite films of his are 'Rain Man' and the Christmassy movie 'Eyes Wide Shut', in which he stars with his one-time wife, Nicole Kidman. It opens with the married couple getting stoned on cannabis, and Nicole becoming well and truly spiteful, verbally, which is so often the worst kind. Tom puts on a fine performance as a deeply hurt man, and his actions thereafter endanger his very life. That scene in which all the conglomerates are in a circle - in masks - is really frightening and mysterious. They are REVOLTING masks, but I find Tom's to be quite amusing!

Of course, when people are in a circle, opportunities abound to make height comparisons, but this film stars lots of women too - beautiful, model-type girls, who seem on the tall side, so Tom still looks rather below average, but nothing outrageous, by any means. I'd say Tom looked around 5ft7.5 in this.

As for 'Rain Man', this film was truly a one-of-a-kind. It was the first movie to go into detail with the subject of autism, and though there have been others since, and perfectly good ones, nobody dealt with the subject quite as well as Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Both actors are below average, Dustin being shorter than Tom, but they made for a realistic-looking couple of brothers, height-wise, some two decades or so apart in age.

The latter of the films I described, 'Eyes Wide Shut', was the last film to be made by Stanley Kubrick.

Have a great Birthday Tom!

5ft7.5

So, Justin Bieber jokingly challenged Tom Cruise to an MMA fight on Twitter:

But that's not what interested me. As you can see, someone came up with an estimated Tale-of-the-Tape. If you read the the comments, it's not the ridiculous 5'9" Bieber estimate that keeps getting brought up, but the 5'7" listing for Cruise. It was just interesting that all these years later how much of the public has bought into the propaganda of Tom Cruise as being unusually short. I'm of the mind that he's closer to 5'7" than 5'8", but it was funny how much taller the general public thought Bieber was than Cruise, when we have Cruise taller (barely) than Bieber here. lol

I can't understand all this consensus about Tom Cruise being little. Family Guy makes fun of him all the time making him seem like he's as tall as a little kid, when that's not true at all. If anything, I'd call Tom weak average but certainly not short, not anywhere close to that in fact.

-----------------

There are people who even say he is 5'4"-5'5" and they are being serious. Josh Hutcherson or Daniel Radcliffe in particular who is 5'4.5" and believes Cruise is little...not realising that Cruise would be towering over him.

Cruise just has been saddled with that image partly because of his marriage to Kidman a legit 5'10 ranger and Holmes a 5'9" range woman. Those are tall women and they also wore heels so ofc a guy under average would look short.
Pierre said on 20/May/19
@Bobby = I personnally just try to guess his real height here nothing more than that,you can see generally in my comments i explain why i guess x or y height.But if you're not ok with my guess and you guess Tom is even 5"11' it's your right and i have personally no problems with that.

@Johan = Jeremy Renner is about the same height as Rob in the pic but imo was wearing big high shoes in this event with maybe something in that=his shoes were looking like this= Click Here .Curiously when he walk with a good step like here his rear right heel always touch the floor or is just a little bit higher than the floor.When a guy walk with a good step like him his heel (with a classic shoes without internal heel) is easily higher than the floor like here = Click Here .

Here he is with 5'8.5" Jeremy Renner, how anyone can think he measures under 5'7" boggles the mind.

Does he get a boost from footwear? Yes he does but its not 3-4 inches.
Erik C. said on 9/May/19
I'll give this lil fella 5'7"- 5'7.5" range. And he might wake up at the 3/4 that Rob list him at. And then dips down to a flat 5'7" at his low.
Denali said on 8/May/19
5'7" flat peak, and maybe a fraction less now as he is starting to hit his late '50s.
Pierre said on 6/May/19
@Ong= Katie Holmes compared to Robert Patrick or Serena Williams is under 5"9' range,she's max 5"8' to my eyes
cmillzz said on 5/May/19
No taller than 170cm. Especially these days.
Jay Ong said on 4/May/19
@Pierre = Yes it will be very hard to judge ones person's height with footwear because even if he was only wearing vans or chuck taylor converse shoes which only gives us 0.5 to 0.6 inch additional height, we can still put lifts inside of it. Like mine, when i wear vans shoes I can put a lift inside like folded socks which will give me instant 0.5 to 0.75 additonal boost aside from vans itself. But, I see a photo of Tom Cruise with Katie Holmes barefoot at the boat in Sydney. I see no more than 1.5 to 1.75 inch difference. Katie at 5'9". Making Tom at 5'7 1/4" at worst.
Pierre said on 2/May/19
@Ong = Of course it will be hard to post a pic with Tom 5"6' because you probably know very well he wear lots of times advantageous shoes.His partner in Top Gun gave an interview inwhich she said Tom was wearing lifts in the scenes next to her,i think it's very easy to try this interview in web.I posted recently my guess with pics of Sean Penn next to others celebrities and next to Tom...Show me your pics now if you want.
Parker said on 2/May/19
Pierre said on 1/May/19
There is a big probability he's max 5"6'

Its all about opinions Pierre - IMO its a zero chance he's max 5'6. He is minimum 5'7, Max 5'8, again IMO.
Jay Ong said on 2/May/19
@Pierre = Sean Penn is at 5'8". Cruise is atleast 5'7". Also, difference between them is half inch to 3/4 inch. I don't see a full inch difference. That makes Tom a 5'7.25" to 5'7.5". Can you please post a photo that can support your 5'6" claim on Cruise?
Pierre said on 1/May/19
@Jay =Why not chance?Next to some Guys Sean Penn looks max 5"7' and Tom looks a little bit shorter than Sean...Do the maths again...There is a big probability he's max 5"6'
Jay Ong said on 29/Apr/19
@Pierre = Weak 5'6" for Cruise??? Not chance. You state that meaning he could be around 5'5.5" to 5'5.75" and there's no way he is that short. He is a minimum 5'7" and worst is at 5'6.75" and that will only happen to him if he had a bad day. Meaning less sleep and restless days. Tom Cruise is really a 5'7" guy. In a reality he's 5'7.25" now as before he is 5'7.5".
RichardSpain said on 29/Apr/19
Short to be a Hero!

To me Tom Cruise is 171/172 cm barefoot not more than that
Pierre said on 27/Apr/19
@Jay Ong=For me Tom looks around one inch shorter than Sean Penn and Sean Penn seems to me a weak 5"7'.My guess is Tom is around a weak 5"6'.
Jay Ong said on 26/Apr/19
@Pierre = What would you guess Tom Cruise height? Honestly for me 5'7" is the smallest he can APPEAR in the public and highest would be 5'7 1/2". Depending on the situation. Good sleep 5'7 1/2" bad sleep would be 5'7" to 5'7 1/4".
Pierre said on 25/Apr/19
@Jay Ong = Tom Cruise is know to wear advantageous shoes so compare him to Mimi Rodgers is just another comparison.And she's maybe not exactly 5"8' range = Click Here = here next to Crhis Ciaffa listed 5"7' when around the same heels ...Other= Click Here
Pierre said on 25/Apr/19
@Johan = She never looks 5"9' if Patrick Stewart is 5"8',you have to take in consideration her hairs(Patrick has no hairs),and next to Serena Williams who is standing in a poor posture she looks max 5"8'.
Jay Ong said on 25/Apr/19
I think Rob has pinned TC right on. My mistake on my previous post. Everyone please google "Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers pictures" and you will see it in getty image page a lot of pictures of them together. I see TC's peak height at 5'7 1/2" next to 5'8" Mimi Rogers. As for now, Tom mis at 5'7 1/4" since he lost a quarter of inch during his stunt works in his action films.

Conclusion: peak height: 5'7 1/2"
current height: 5'7 1/4"
Johan 185 cm said on 25/Apr/19
@Pierre

Katie is wearing ballerina flats there next to Patrick Stewart. Thats just a good example of her looking indeed 5'9".

Click Here

Here he is in lifts but she has a good heel as well, no less than 6' with that heel. I would give him 179 cm in shoes there possibly even close to 180 cm. How would a guy 170 cm get that high?

That last pic I showed

Click Here

Katie is looking down, she is still 3cm + taller than him.

Anywhere between 171-172cm is fair for Tom.
Pierre said on 22/Apr/19
@Dave = Dave why is it so important for you i give my guess?I don't understand?
Dave98 said on 21/Apr/19
@Pierre So what is your current stand on Tom Cruise's height?? Just Curious to know as I think Tom is around 171 cm flat!
Mister lennon said on 21/Apr/19
Penn could be 5'7 range. Yes.
But i dont see a peak oldman so short as 5"8. He looked everu bit of 5,'9.
Pierre said on 21/Apr/19
@Mister Lennon=yeah,or Gary Oldman is really 5"8.5' and then Sean Penn is max 5"7'.Next to Georges Harrison Sean looks always 5"7' max.But we can think Georges harrison's height is not good too...
Mister lennon said on 20/Apr/19
Penn could be a weak or flat 5'8 and oldman a solid 5'9
Pierre said on 20/Apr/19
@Johan =but Tom is standing closer to the camera and the floor isn't regular but looks always shorter than her....And Katie holmes 5"9'...Here next to Patrick Stewart listed 5"8' = Click Here by considering he has no hairs and probably a fraction more heels,she looks very similar to him .Click Here = here easily closer to the camera.Here closer to the camera than Serena Williams in cool posture Click Here .Here Serena closer to the camera always in relax posture = Click Here .

Out running with his 5'9" ex wife, very much doubt he had lifts because when she is in heels he still manages this :

Ian C. said on 13/Apr/19
How could it have been possible that Tom Cruise was cast as Jack Reacher? The Reacher of the novels is six foot five and heroically strong, and Reacher's size and strength often figure in the plots, so casting Cruise as Reacher was essentially a rebuke to the fans of the books.

Casting Cruise as Reacher would be like, I dunno, casting Gary Oldman as Dracula, or Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins. You take a beloved character from a series of popular books and cast someone completely physically inapt as the character.
Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 12/Apr/19
172 cm is best fit for him
William_O'Jell said on 12/Apr/19
Tom was about 5 feet 7 inches when younger but is now probably 5 feet 6. That makes him roughly the same height as 'the short Beatle' Ringo.
Pierre said on 9/Apr/19
Sorry,i made a mistake,the second video with Dustin = Click Here .I have watch another time the first video and i think the difference between Guy Montagné and Christophe Dechavanne is at least 2.5 inches=imo the guy without hairs has a strong head and forehead and lots of time slouch a little bit to talk to the other guy.
Pierre said on 9/Apr/19
Yes Tom is taller than Dustin in Rain Man but watch that = Click Here =at around 3:06 and 3:20 = i think the left guy without hairs(Guy Montagné) is 2 or 2.5 inches taller than the right man(Christophe Dechavanne).I know approximately the height of the left guy because i was standing next to him in a supermarket one time.I'm around 5"11.25' during the day and i'm around one forehead taller than him.He's listed 172 in France(around 5"7.75')and then i think this list is good.Now the right guy next to Dustin(Dustin wear comfortable heels imo,watch them at around 2:58) = Click Here =they are standing in around the same posture at around 3:43 /3:46

Just watching Rain Man as I type this. Cruise is at best 1 inch taller than Hoffman in most scenes

I felt it was at least 2 inches as in dance scene below - The escalator scene 3-4 inches

Man in Black said on 5/Apr/19
Just watching Rain Man as I type this. Cruise is at best 1 inch taller than Hoffman in most scenes, both wearing standard dress shoes. Hoffmans posture is slightly slumped as well. In the famous coming down the elevator shot though, Cruise is probably wearing a slightly more generous heel.
Jay Ong said on 5/Apr/19
Rob,

There's no way Tom is 5'7 3/4". In lifts or elevator shoes he only appears at 5'9 1/2" to 5'9 3/4" max. He never appear looking 5'10". Fact, without lifts or elevator shoes he is only 5'7" to 5'7 1/4" max barefeet. Just compare him to Lewis Hamilton and Zac Efron, he never appears taller to both of them even with boost.
Jay Ong said on 5/Apr/19
Hi Rob,

Is Lewis Hamilton really a 5'7 1/2" guy? If that's so then Tom must be really 5'7" flat. Whatever Hamilton's is Cruise is 1/2 inch shorter. Unless Lewis Hamilton has more lifts than Tom. But in comparison to Zac Efron, Cruise look 5'7 1/2". What's your thought on this Rob? For me I see Tom Cruise a strong 5'7" guy to 5'7 1/4" max.
Editor Rob
I don't know if the road they were on gave either favour, but we know lewis did come in around that range for a measurement - of course it could have been 172cm, a height he has looked too...whether he wears lifts, or just has great posture is debatable.
Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 4/Apr/19
I'm sure average height (General) for man is 5ft7.5-7.75 inch (not 5ft8 inch) .Hollywood superstar Tom cruise,teen idol Justin bieber, Bollywood superstar shah rukh khan, top singer from england zayn malik and popular host Ryan seacrest is Good example for 5ft7+ range guys.this sample is come from different country superstar

Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 2/Apr/19
I think at low condition he is 171.5 cm, wake up in the morning he is 173.5-174cm range and then in normal condition he is 172-3 cm range. That's my opinion,so 172 cm is perfect list for Holywood Superstar Mr Tom cruise.tq

@TheBat, even if he was weak 5’8, that wouldn’t be considered short compared to the average American. “Short” would be like 5’6 or 5’5.

Yeah this listing seems right. He's short but not tiny like Daniel Radcliffe or Jerry Ferrara.

As listed today and back in the day. The G had this right. G approved. I saw it myself.
billionaireslayer said on 18/Mar/19
5'6 he was shorter than Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men, with Jack having 25yrs on him, and Jack maybe being a strong 5'7 or very weak 5'8 in his prime. Did not look much taller than a 5'4ish Dustin Hoffman.
cmillzz said on 16/Mar/19
Without his lifts, he’s 5’7 flat at most.

I've always thought he's not 172cm. I think he's 171.5cm (5ft 7.5in)

I still think 173 mnimum.
Man in Black said on 13/Mar/19
I was watching The Color of Money last night. Obviously Cruise was a young guy in that, but interesting to see. In the scene where Newman visits Cruise at his job, Cruise's footwear is decently visable, a kind of cuban chelsea boot with a strong 2" heel. In this scene he's probably got about a half inch on Newman, but Newman is slouching by comparison and a much older man at this stage in his career. Newman is wearing more normal looking footwear though.
JD 5'9" said on 13/Mar/19
Does he always wear lifts. He seems to edge out Simon Pegg who I don't think is under 5'8". I guess he's a strong 5'7" guy without lifts.

Parker said on 18/Feb/19
Long time posters have all seen the barefoot pictures often posted here of Katie & Tom together, In my opinion, there is not more than 1 inch between them in Katie's favour, so that puts Tom in the 5'7-5'8 range. Split the difference and go for 5'7.5. Explains why he can look 5'9+ in footwear.

mande2013 said on 14/Feb/19
I'm not a massive fan. In any case, I could certainly believe he's potentially like 5'6.75 barefoot or something, but I seriously doubt he's anywhere near as low as 167.
