hmm I have seen him listed 170 pounds as well

Rob do you think 160 lbs seems accurate for his weight in mission impossible 4?

If he's only 160 lbs there I'd be surprised!!!

This website made me realize i am short as hell! Lol, never really felt short, just saw everyone else as simply bigger.i am male, 5'4.
Me height helped me a lot in freestyle wrestling, judo and Greco-Roman.
I also dated women as tall as 5'9. It's just crazy that i never saw myself as a short man. Is that strange???
Editor Rob
Maybe you have the right mind-set before, not to worry or think too much about your height. Just get on with life and enjoying a variety of hobbies and experiences...

Cruise isn't average

He is short at 5-7

Hi Rob

He is really in the average height range. Sometimes it is just weird how people advertise someone like Cruise as a super short guy. He is a head taller than Danny Devito lol
Editor Rob
in America, he's within lower average range. However that's from my guess...many believe a flat 5ft 7, which many class as short (upper) range.

I cannot see Tom that short though.

I agree that he’s 5’7 1/2”. He looks it next to Andrew Garfield:

He appears somewhere around 4 1/2” inches shorter compared to Nicolas Cage.

And I firmly believe that Foxx is no more than 5’9”, since Eddie Murphy edges him out.

It's possible Cruise is wearing a small lift there

It’s possible everyone in the clip was wearing a small lift.

First time I've seen this clip. Volodymyr Zelenskyy meeting Tom Cruise. Thought Tom's reply to Volo calling him good looking was funny. 'It pays the rent' - coming from a multi millionaire

5'5 for Volod, 5'8 Cruise. I've seen other comments on the video saying you cannot judge the Ukranian president's height because Tom always wears 3 inch lifts. LOL. It gets boring.

Tom looks 5'9 range Click Here
Francisco Gamino said on 3/Mar/22
That’s impossible he can’t be 5ft7 3/4, if you look back next to Zac Efron, he’s 2 inches taller then Tom cruise, and plus he’s not even 5ft7 he’s more of 5ft6

I’d say he’s 5ft6 3/4.

@jabtr, they’re just jealous

Somewhere in the 5’7” range

Easily clears 5’8 in the mornings

I’ve heard he is a bit of a jerk
Kanjar said on 24/Feb/22
I say he is not as tall as he looks, probably 5' 6" to 5' 7" and usually has at least 2 to 3 inches heels hidden inside his shoes.
jabtr said on 24/Feb/22
Don't know why some many people say he is tiny? In Hollywood he is pretty average, even in the world he is only on the shorter side of average.
Okidoki said on 21/Feb/22
Rob, on the "Tom's Cruise on the River Thames Corden" video, Tom looked taller than Corden there, he really looked about 5'8.5-5'9 it seemed. Were those shoe lifts he was using? I feel personally that Corden is a 173 flat guy.

Sometimes, events like this make me believe it's really not impossible Tom was the full 5'8, even though i think 172. He still looks in good shape.
Editor Rob
From all I've seen of them together, I think Corden really has at least 1cm...there's little chance in my mind barefoot they'd measure the same.
smartguy said on 12/Feb/22
hey rob, i never knew if these listed heights are like the absolute lowest? people don't fall a fraction under these listed heights?
or do people you list fall even lower (like a 1/4 of an inch) under these listed heights at their lowest?
hey rob please answer me if you can. thanks.
Editor Rob
They could be more lunchtime ranges and still fall a few mm further.

1983 Chris Penn the left guy in the pic /Tom Cruise a bit more relaxed posture ( closer to the camera )Click Here .Chris Penn is listed 5"11' here and 5"10' in web.

Always good to reference back to Rob - Here with Lea Thompson who he gives 5'3.
Click Here. She claims 5'4.

In your pic Tom with more relaxed posture looks at least 3 inches taller. In other full length web pics I see 4 inches. Click Here Click Here

Pics with Penn I discount as I've said in a previous post my son grew an inch between 18-20. Tom had just turned 19 when Taps was filmed. He could have put on a few cms post 19.

You could argue 5'7 for Tom from your pic with Lea - IMO you can discount anything under.

I am almost sure he was 5'8 flat at his peak. Look how he looked next to Robin Williams who was not under 5'7. Cruise is about 5'7 3/4 today.I trust average guesses more than Rob (not ban pls), but this one is a joke.

@Parker Thanks for your opinion!
I have to admit, usually TC looks solid 5'8 guy. But I choose to believe there is a possibility that he is 5'7. I am 5'7 and it is quite easy to look as tall as 5'8 guys. Just use decent shoes, make sure you have a good posture and know how to present yourself in pictures.

@Rising174cm&Parker: I would like ask what do you think about these pictures from Minority Report photocalls:

There are dozens of pics on the web of Tom and Spielberg - I would not bet on who was the taller man.Same with Jeremy Renner and Tom. Click Here

@Rising174cm&Parker: I would like ask what do you think about these pictures from Minority Report photocalls:
Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

I would say he looks closer to 5'7 than 5'8. With normal shoes he is not taller than Spielberg, even shorter. So based on those pictures, I would say he is 5'7 (169,5 - 170,5 cm).
Parker said on 27/Dec/21
@Rising - fair points.

Only thing I would say on the Penn comparison is Tom had just turned 19 when Taps was filmed. My 18 year old son was measured at 169 for a pre employment medical, 2 years later at another medical measured 171. Could Tom have put on a another 1-2cms before 21?
Rising174cm said on 26/Dec/21
@Parker: I generally agree that he seems like he'd be more 5'8" than 5'7". I only hesitate because while Rob gives Lewis Hamilton more like 171.5 cm, he was supposed to have been measured at 171 and Cruise doesn't seem taller. I tend to agree Hamilton seems taller than 171, and like Cruise, I believe he's probably worn lifts for red carpet events, I'm just leaving open the possibility the 171 cm measurement was correct.

There's also the series of full photos and videos of Cruise, 5'7.25" listed Jerry Bruckheimer and Johnny Depp from 2013. Bruckheimer was a few months shy of 70, so even if he was once slightly taller than listed, there's a good chance he wasn't at that time. Cruise generally looked about 3 cm taller than Bruckheimer or at most, 1.5": Click Here Click Here but he was also wearing pretty obvious elevator boots: Click Here Click Here Look at the angle and it's likely those boots could give 2.25" over barefoot height. Particularly since Depp was wearing cowboy boots himself, yet Tom's knees were clearly higher. Considering Bruckheimer appears to be wearing shoes around 1" or so, Tom might not be much different barefoot. Most likely a fraction taller, though. Depp really doesn't look more than 2" max taller than Bruckheimer, even with cowboy boots, but as I've said before, I don't think Depp is a full 5'9". One reason is a photo a friend has with Depp in the 90s and Depp looks maybe 5'8". I've seen a similar photo of myself with this same friend and I certainly look no shorter than Depp did in comparison. I think Johnny could be closer to 5'8.5".

Another example of Tom wearing a thicker elevator boot as opposed to the more typical 2" type elevator he wears was the Knight and Day premiere where he measured up fairly well to Cameron Diaz in heels: Click Here Click Here 2nd photo is a pretty good shot of the boot from the side. I'd guess Tom measured something like 177 cm in those, or near 5'10". Essentially passing for close to his 5'9" claim.

Perhaps the best evidence of Tom being closer to 5'8" than 5'7" is those mid to late 2000s appearances when he'd appear in normal shoes, even on red carpets or on television and was noticeably taller than 5'7". By the 2010s, Tom was primarily focused on action films and wearing lifts most of the time, but there was a period before that when he seemed to appear without lifts a lot. He was shorter than 5'8" Sean Penn in Taps, though, so a full 5'8" seems a bit generous.
Parker said on 24/Dec/21
Rising174cm said on 20/Dec/21
I generally think 5'7.5" is the best guess. I wouldn't go more than a quarter inch over or under that

Good estimate. I personally cannot see Tom measuring under 5'7.5 at any time of the day.
Here with strong 5'8 Olga Kurylenko. Listed at 5'9 on some sites. Average user guess 5'8.5
Click Here

Olga has ground advantage, Tom a bit more footwear.
Rising174cm said on 20/Dec/21
I generally think 5'7.5" is the best guess. I wouldn't go more than a quarter inch over or under that. He often passes for 5'8.5" when he does wear elevator shoes or even a weak 5'9" when he wore elevator boots. That said, I would guess a full 5'8" before I guessed 5'7" flat.

Surprisingly, he could look just a half inch or 2 cm max shorter than Kurt Russell in Vanilla Sky and Kurt is listed here at 5'9.25" or 176 cm.
Pierre said on 15/Dec/21
Lol and of course Tom had same help as David here...More seriously he looks 5"8' next to him, less veruy probably advantageous shoes...David beckham is probably more a weak 5"11' than a full 5"11' imo
CarloynG said on 14/Dec/21
I think this guy is so ridiculed because of his height is because he has no flaws. A very good looking guy, very well dressed and always comes across as charming, so they pick on his height.

You'll notice this with 5'7 Alex Turner too, he comes across very well spoken, very attractive and dresses great. Males ridicule him since he turned his back on his ''chav'' style and acted a bit of a womaniser, girls love him but men dislike him, often turning to his height.

I think a good looking tall guy like Hemsworth, it's harder to pick on. But had Hemsworth been 5'7, it's all they'd talk about. It's strange, because for some reason you don't hear much people giving Johnny Depp heat and he's 5'9.

Everyone always says that “God made Cruise too perfect, that he had to make him short.” Frankly, being short or tall shouldn’t even matter. Good actor, wish he would’ve done for projects like “Jerry Maguire” and “Maguire.”

172cm, 5ft 7.75. Lifts take him up a good amount though.
Okidoki said on 11/Dec/21
@Rob In you're opinion would you say that Tom got called short that often because he was not only successful but considered a very handsome guy too? Because i rarely see other actors in the 5'7.5-5'8 range get called short all the time or ridiculed for it.

Because of that fact, could it be a chance he was under 5'7.5-5'7.75? I personally see that as unlikely, so i really think he got that "short" label over him only because he was above average looking and people tried to find flaws in him, it seems like that to me personally.

On another note, great actor, great movies too.
Editor Rob
Yeah as an actor he's made a lot of entertaining films.

I can't see him as a flat 5ft 7. 5ft 7.5 really was the low I'd go for.

I think what Billy Connoly said is somewhat true - jealousy at a hugely succesful guy who is a bit below average...

but also like I said before, some of it might be because of his personal beliefs and what he follows.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Nov/21
The press really are a bunch of spiteful, oafish old farts.

They took pictures of Tom looking less than his best and stuck them in their rags and online. He looked worried and troubled to me.

We know what Tom usually looks like and as soon as whatever it is that's upsetting him gets sorted, he'll be back to his normal, fine-looking self. Celebrities aren't superhuman and shouldn't be goaded and taunted. There's no need for it.

Give up the sadism you mean old photographers. You're just showing yourselves up! 🖕😝

@MJKoP so he's over a foot taller than Cruise.
Rising174cm said on 22/Nov/21
Mel actually had cowboy boots at that event with Tom, iirc. But I think Mel was also a bit taller in straighter photos. Never seen the pic with Douglas before. I think Douglas and Gibson were both 5'9" and Tom about 5'7.5", but all 3 men were known to wear lifts at one time or another so you may get weird results in photos.

Rob, Something is very strange when Tom was young and new to this industry he constantly looked small about 5'7 for example in the movie Taps with Sean Penn and in his other movies at that time as well but nowadays I always guess him at the minimum of 5'8 and many time 5'9 surprisingly towering over other 5'8 to 5'8.5 guys.
I am sure Sean Penn is about 5'8, I cannot even think him as a 5'8.5 guy because many guys who have 5'8.5 are taller than him and even Joaquin Phoenix with some footware advantage and better posture was 1 to 1.5 inch taller than him in their movie together.
And in Taps Tom always had a commando like posture and Sean had a normal good posture then also he was like a inch taller.
How is that possible.
Editor Rob
There are some guys who squeeze out another fraction. Whether Tom did in early 20's is another matter.

Cruise is a confident under average height guy and generally a very nice man to work with from reports. He’s fit and generally aging well, not seen a lot of lift wearing. But there’s definitely something strange and even uncanny something lacking behind the eyes that the far less friendly Christian Bale used for inspiration in his American Psycho. It’s certainly wrapped up in his status as a powerful Scientologist.

You really have to give Cruise credit for a clear lack of vanity about his height. Look at all the pictures above of him standing with taller women. No elevator shoes or standing on tip toe for this guy. Cruise had no problem working with Kelly McGillis, who was three inches taller, in Top Gun, even though he could have insisted on casting another actress.)

Tom Hanks, who is widely praised as a nice man, rejected Uma Thurman for the part eventually played by Melanie Griffith in Bonfire of the Vanities. (Source: The Devil's Candy, a book about the making of Bonfire by Julie Salamon.) Hanks didn't want to work with Thurman, who was otherwise well-suited for the part, because she was tall.

His shoes are looking more or less classic in your examples However one of the principal particularities of discreet advantageous shoes is that you will not suspect a help...
Seal said on 27/Oct/21
The first quote by another person who claimed 5ft 7.75 says it all. I don't even know WHY people want Tom cruise to be short. 5ft 7-8 isn't even that short. Its a tad shorter than average, but not short at all. I think he's about 5ft 8-8.5 given that an actress is claiming cruise is taller than her and she's 5ft 7.75

Hi Rob,

From everything seen over the years including people who met him...one thing with Tom is great posture helps him at times, as does solid footwear.

How many folk who talk about lifts online have ever tried wearing them in normal shoes, the exact normal shoe Cruise wears a lot...like at the event with Willis.

You can see me with a normal shoe versus putting 1.8cm (0.7 inch) of actual lift inside the normal shoe: Click Here.

you simply cannot walk about with any comfort like that - your foot slips out the shoe, it's totally uncomfortable.

Now with high-cut shoes or boots like Downey wears, of course it is a lot easier 😆

Cruise is 5-7, not 5-8.
People expect him to be 5-4-5-5.
But he's not 5-8, either

So why does Carice Van Houten look shorter against Tom than Rob?

Click Here

Please don't resort to footwear difference - you can look closely at Tom's shoes.There is no bulging at the front. Because he has worn enhanced footwear at times people have brought into media brainwashing and assume he's wearing them all the time. Carice has about 3 inches of footwear in each picture.

@Ian C - Lee Childs has stopped the movie franchise because he also thinks he's too old

Click Here

Here's his comment on his height

"Child also pointed out that Cruise stands 5’8” on a good day, while the fictional Jack Reacher is a brawny 6’5” in the books. The height difference was apparently part of Child’s decision to pull the plug on future Reacher movies and instead go make a TV series starring a different, presumably taller actor. We’ll see whether Cruise takes his advice to stop hanging out of helicopters and settle into doing more character work."

He very very very clearly wears lifts. Max 5'7" at his prime.
Ian C. said on 4/Sep/21
Look at the three photos above. Cruise is willing to stand next to taller women, and doesn't mind that they're wearing heels. You have to admire him for that. He's like Sean Connery refusing to wear a toupee.

The only thing about Cruise that kind of made me flinch was that he cast himself as Jack Reacher. (And if you have never read a Reacher book, give them a try.) Reacher's defining trait is that he's a giant. Cruise as Reacher would be like John Travolta as Sherlock Holmes. Just not right.

Yeh @ Rob - Remember the Tom Hollander quote

Also folk might remember the interviewer saying to Tom hardy how he was taller than Cruise and he's like nope...

Lol bet Tom didn't wear lifts next to Carice is the same risk as bet Sly doesn't wear lifts in events !
Editor Rob
Tom Cruise is taller than many think.

just look at this poor guy: Click here

"For years I was told Tom Cruise was short and then I went to a wax museum and was devestated to find he was taller than me"

and it obviously has got to the guy as he mentions it a few times:

"One of the big disappointments of my life was going to a wax museum & learning I was shorter than Tom Cruise"

"I once went to a wax museum that had a Tom Cruise and was keen to see if I was taller than him. Wax Tom Cruise was taller. I was humiliated. My wife reminds me of this day often"

He probably has nightmares about it...

Here is another guy who shares my sentiment: Click Here

"just FYI, @TomCruise is a lot taller than you think. :)"

Yeah most of bollywood is massively overlisted on the site. Sendhil has a picture with rob and so does Jimmy Jean Louis. In pics with Jimmy, Sendhil looks max 5'9.5", and Jimmy himself looked a weak 5'11" with Rob. It's pretty clear to me that Anil kapoor has the edge on Tom (keep in mind Cruise is wearing thicker footwear). If Anil Kapoor is 5'8.5"-5'9" then Sendhil is 5'11.5"-6'0" (by comparisons with sophie chaudhary, it's pretty obvious that the difference between them is around 3", maybe even a hair more). That would make Rob a very storng 5'10". You realize how ridiculous that sounds?

I think it's pretty clear Boris head is closer than Tom's...but with looser posture of course.

interestingly Peter Shilton beside Tom Cruise. He's claimed 6ft 1 and 6ft. In person, well a few years ago seemed over 5ft 10 flat but obviously shrunk a bit.

Thing is with Boris he’s got a big head so it always looks like his head is closer to the camera even when they’re about level

@viper, The average guess doesn’t mean squat. A lot of people want Tom Cruise to be shorter than he is, not because they actually believe he is, but because they dislike him, or just enjoy poking fun at him.

No one has a better eye for height than Rob. He lists Tom closer to 5’8 than 5’7, so I believe and trust it. I don’t even like Tom, but I try to be objective. He’s not as low as 5’7, as every picture indicates. (even the ones where he’s barefoot). Off topic, but I noticed you downgrade almost every celebrity on this site by 1 inch.

I don't know, but I agree a bit about the jealousy aspect and seeing Height as a much much easier target to have a little dig, compared to having a dig at something like Tom's choice of beliefs

(Quote from Editor Rob)

His beliefs are far more bewildering than him being weak average height and wearing high cut boots at times...

You and Cruise.would be the ultimate pick because you are strong 5ft8 Rob, even though you claim 5'8 you measure 5ft8.25-375 on syadiometer and never drop below 5f8 1/18th tape.measuure

Wonder if.in your 20s you could cleared 175cm out of bed (basically 5ft9)...

How tall are you?

4️⃣2️⃣4️⃣2️⃣!

5'6 is just crazy talk imo, guys like Jonah hill and Ben Stiller, they are 5'6. Cruise easily looks taller than them, lifts or no lifts, it's obvious. He has to be bare minimum 5'7. But more likely 5'7.25-.5 range

@Pierre But good help in shoes doesn't make short people tall, but give realistically 1 inches or a max 1.2 1.3 of footwear advantage
A people barefoot 1 76 cm with discrete elevator shows seem 179.5 1 80 not 1 83, a people barefoot 1 70 cm seem 1 73, it's more simple
I know these shoes and I know what I'm saying

When the heel of the shoe is a good inch plus your lift is a good inch ,the gain with this shoes is no less than 2 inches.A 5"7' guy barefoot will be 5"9' in this shoes.

Click Here = Go in this page and look at the second pic(the right pic showing brown shoes)=this shoes are looking classic shoes,finally they give you around 2.3 inches...The same shoes with a little more internal lifts are giving you even a bit more than 2.3 inches.
A 5"7' guy who wears a good 2.5 inches shoes stands finally no less than 5"9.5'

Djdjdjd said on 16/Jul/21
@Pierre But good help in shoes doesn't make short people tall, but give realistically 1 inches or a max 1.2 1.3 of footwear advantage
A people barefoot 1 76 cm with discrete elevator shows seem 179.5 1 80 not 1 83, a people barefoot 1 70 cm seem 1 73, it's more simple
I know these shoes and I know what I'm saying

Tom 5"6' range again to me

Well at least your increasing your guess - not long ago it was 5'6 max, which to your credit does show pragmatism.
Pierre said on 16/Jul/21
@Parker It seems to me you and other people in this site have a tendency to often hiding behind the editor when my guesses are not the same as you. I could interpret this as a lack of arguments. But of course it doesn’t have to be that.
Tom 5"6' range again to me
Heightist9999 said on 15/Jul/21
I am sure Tom was 5'7.5 at some point of his life. Either at his peak or more likely today after losing a few mm of height.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Jul/21
I love Tom Cruise and so did my Mum when I showed her Rain Man!

The aforementioned film, his Interview With The Vampire and Stanley Kubrick's final movie, Eyes Wide Shut, in which he starred with his then wife, Nicole Kidman, are the three most enjoyable of Tom's offerings in my opinion. I have yet to see Mission Impossible, a copy of which is waiting for me upstairs, and I'm looking forward to comparing Tom to Sean Harris.

I honestly can't see Tom ever being less than 5ft7.5/75 during the time these three favourites were made.

The actor turned 59 on the 3rd July, so a belated Happy Birthday to Tom for 12 days ago.

🎂🎁🎊🎈

I'm going with 5ft7.75. Perhaps he's dropped a little height by now, so 5ft7.5 might be more realistic for today's height.

If tom Cruise and Henry cavill both have good posture then why does tom looks like 5 inches shorter than cavill (6 feet).
Editor Rob
I currently give them almost 5 inches apart, from what I can see I don't think it's anything over 5 inches between them
Nik Ashton said on 15/Jul/21
@ Evan Soloway - I think a peak and current would be good too, even if there isn’t a lot of difference between them! I also think Rob should meet Tom!

How tall are you?

Parker said on 15/Jul/21
Pierre said on 14/Jul/21
some people here who argue almost 5"8' for Tom systematically claim Tom -or other celebrities- wear only classic shoes or only a poor help

'some people' includes the forum editor- You do realise that don't you?
man 1 said on 14/Jul/21
Do you think tom is height conscious because he has a medium to loose posture most of the time and never a forced posture even when the other person is forcing his posture up for example tom with Henry cavill.
Editor Rob
I actually think Tom has pretty good posture. Cavill though at times looks like he has an even better stance.
Pierre said on 14/Jul/21
@Djdjdjd yeah but sometimes some people insert a good help in their 1.5 inches shoes or wear discreet elevator shoes .Eventually read here some more or less recent(plus old) comments/pics some internauts and myself posted,this could give you an idea about that.(some people here who argue almost 5"8' for Tom systematically claim Tom -or other celebrities- wear only classic shoes or only a poor help.Maybe some pics will give you an idea about that)
Djdjdjd said on 12/Jul/21
@Pierre normal shoes have a minimal heel, you have to consider effective height
Ezemple I have a shoes with a 1.5 inches heel, but normal people have a heel 0.8-1.2 inches, therefore I have a 0.3 inches advantage
The concept is clear
I think that Tom cruise is realistically 5 ft 7 or 170. 5 no more no less
J welling said on 12/Jul/21
Tom Cruise would be lucky if he was 5 7 and I don't think he's probably more than 160 lb
Evan Soloway said on 12/Jul/21
Rob, isn't it time tom cruise had a peak height listing? surely all those stunts have taken a toll! maybe now he is more like flat 5 '7.
Editor Rob
Tom was a bit worried he had lost 1/4 inch years ago...if he's lost anything I would imagine it seems very small fraction, nothing like a half or three quarter inch.

There was a quote I added to Kelly McGillis page the other day, it was interesting again as there is this myth that Tom is worried about his height in films.

"My height was the problem. There were huge discussions about high heels or no high heels on our first 'date.' Tom [Cruise] said he had no problems if I wore heels and thus would be taller than him. But the studio (Paramount) would not hear of it."
man 1 said on 11/Jul/21
Rob why could you not take a picture with Tom cruise, he is the most popular actor on this website and after all this could be a good way to advertise your site and bring more people to check the height of other related celebs.
Editor Rob
well that would be great if it ever happened.

I can see how 5ft 8.5 is possible

@Parker= Yes I know if my memory is good you prefer post this pics with James Corden standing closer to the camera than Justin or/and Justin standing in a terrible posture... =then ,are my photos more cherry picking or more yours ....

Here is another "cherry picking photo " with Justin standing clearly not straight and max same distance to the camera as James Click Here but still is dwarfing him

MY claim for Katie? Have you not visited her page? Click Here
82 celebheights posters have her at average 175. Rob has her listed at 175. She claims 175.

To be fair, this spanish celebheights ripoff has her lower
Click Here

I'm not going to comment on your cherry picked photos of Corden and Timberlake. Celebheights posters can view them for themselves on google images and make their own judgement.

LOL Pierre on that Mathew Horne pic you keep wheeling out - You more than anyone are always banging on about advantageous shoes......yet you never consider Mathew Horne might be wearing them?

Any user can search google images Corden and Horne and see James is 2 inches taller.

Anyway, we'll add Ellen to your list of celebs over listed to match your Cruise 5'6 guess. haha

Face it, there's as much chance of Tom being 5'6 as Tyson Fury being 6'4.

@ Yivoki - You could be right, how tall are you?
Pierre said on 3/Jul/21
Lol Parker all the pics that show Katie clearly not 5"9' are cherry picks....But I have to say in both pics you posted Katie stands logically a bit closer to the camera by their respective feet....And next to the guy Katie clearly one more time stands in a very good posture while Serena stands in a more relaxed posture(legs etc)...
Same thing next to John McEnroe in your pic Serena stands- closer to the camera= here is another pic with Serena in better posture than John = Click Here
Some guys who met John Mc Enroe wrote they are giving him 5"10' not 5"11'...
About Neymar you claim 5"8.5' = Click Here here is Neymar next to 6"1' Ronaldo....

Click Here here with a good advantage of posture

Click Here here is how much tall looks Serena Williams next to Prince Albert of Monaco

Click Here here is how much tall looks Robert Knepper next to Prince Albert

Click Here Robert /Rob

Imo both Robert Serena very similar ,Serena 5"9' absolute max.

Now Serena / Katie Holmes supposed 5"9' = When Katie stands closer to the camera ,legs straights Serena a bit relawex posture = Click Here with all this advantages Katie in the pic still looks a hair shorter than Serena.

Now Serena standing this time closer to the camera than Katie,Katie again straight on her legs Serena clearly a little bit more relaxed posture than Katie= Click Here

I buy absolute max 5"8' by this comparisons.
Nik Ashton said on 29/Jun/21
@ Sandy Cowell - Tom has done exceptionally well to be extremely successful, not only has he had to face resentment but he will still have had to overcome any potential height discrimination. Then instead of admiring him for overcoming these barriers some people will have resented even more for his success and that he has a “get up and go” attitude. People should admire Tom for his hard work and for being determined to succeed in the so called “tall man’s world” of show business, Tom doesn’t believe you have to be tall so this is proof of how human he is and this could be applied to any characteristic of a person. It’s great that Tom has an amazing talent and I know he will agree (like we do) that hard work and effort are appreciated and that hard work and effort can make someone totally appreciated however good they are at anything. Being nice and helpful to other people (I know that Tom is nice and helpful to other people) is more important than having any special ability or any so called desirable physical features (I know that Tom will agree) but having a special ability is so amazing and people should have admiration for this.

I agree that there are people out there who like to put Tom down and they think that calling him tiny does this, it’s like they are using it as a stick to beat him with. The only thing is that being tiny is hardly an insult and I’m sure Tom laughs at this and thinks “Is that the best you can say”! Not that Tom is tiny though but even if he was he would laugh it off and rise above what people say, he would want every person to rise above any thing other people say.

I have an inkling that if Tom met me he would think that we are both about the same height, if Rob measured Tom and my good self we would then know you know!

“Rain Man” is so amazing and Tom is famous for starring in this film. It would be a dream to see “Eyes Wide Shut” too!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Jun/21
I can't see it being easy, Nik, to be part of showbusiness when you're expected to be tall and resented if you aren't, yet still prove successful.

Some people can be unattractively jealous, so they put him down and make out Tom is shorter than he really is. I like his films 'Rain Man' and 'Eyes Wide Shut' the best. 😄👌
Nik Ashton said on 26/Jun/21

Yes, but the people saying he's 5'6 will say he has 3 inch of 'hidden' lifts even though the shoes look standard, or the person you are comparing him against (eg Jamie Foxx) are overlisted and really only 5'7.

Little difference between Tom and James Corden if you watch the first 5 minutes of this clip.
Click Here

If Cuba Gooding is the listed 5'10, or even 5'9 you can see 5'8 for James is fair.

A further clip of James with Kevin Hart and Will Farrel is further validation.
Click Here

If Kevin is the 159 listed,reaching James eye level would put James at 5'7, but Kevin is under James eyelevel, so again 5'8 fair. James is also 6-7 inches shorter than Will Ferrell,listed 6'2.5.

Great job Rob.

Yeah James Corden is a good 5"8'...then probably Gisele Munchen is a good 5"11', David Guetta next to Pablo Motos is a good 5"11' Click Here Michael Pena never wear lifts next to this girl when the difference of height between us is around the same no matter if she wears flat sneakers or huge stilettos lol

If Cruise was under 5'7, Rob is going to have to spend a lot of time reducing a significant amount of listings on celebheights. E.G Katie Holmes would be under 5'8, Daniel Radcliffe and Pablo Motos under 5'3, Ben Stiller and Michael Pena under 5'6 etc etc.

This theory would be good if we consider Tom never wear lifts...
