How tall is Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise's Height

5ft 7 ¾ (172.1 cm)

American actor best known for starring in films like Top Gun, Rain Man, Mission Impossible, Jerry Maguire and Minority Report. The Biggest star in Hollywood has attracted a myriad of articles that never cease to highlight his 'apparent' lack of height, even going so far as to claim Tom is seeking advice over a potential quarter inch loss in stature. Tom's height is regularly listed as being 5ft 7, although back in the 1980's he was being commonly referred to as an average 5ft 8 or 9, a height which Tom himself was quoted saying in 1988: "I have always been pretty much the same weight, 147 pounds - at 5 feet 9 inches" and in another article from 1988, it mentioned: "Incredibly average, except for the devilish grin and the ice-blue eyes. Now you know, so stop asking: That's how Tom Cruise really looks. At about 5-foot-8 and 160 pounds, he's in decent shape, but no hunk."

Nicole Kidman once mentioned that when filming Days of Thunder "They had me in really flat shoes, but you could still see I was taller than him. I'd prefer to be smaller, but I don't mind. I like the fact that he's one of the most famous actors in the world and can work with anybody - but he doesn't mind working with an actress who's taller." After their divorce, she joked "Now I can wear heels again". That film's Producer - Don Simpson - also couldn't resist a jibe: "I'll never put Tom Cruise down. He's already kinda short."

However, Scottish comedian Billy Connolly piped in on the topic, laughing at the notion Tom was some sort of pint-sized midget, exclaiming that "Tom was at least 5ft 10...[he's a] Smashing guy. Everybody thinks he's a small guy. He's not. I think they would like him to be wee. I think they're jealous b**tards.". Another actress who worked on Eyes Wide Shut with Tom, also revealed that "We started chatting and I cheekily said, 'So how tall are you? C'mon... back to back!' And he did! Answer: he's a smidge taller than me and I'm 5'7 ¾. Myth dispelled - he's not 5'2!"

Richard Harris seemingly thought the opposite, saying: "You have guys like Tom Cruise, who's a midget, and he has eight bodyguards, all 6-feet-10, which makes him even more diminutive. He disappears behind them. It's an absolute joke." This mind-set was shared by chat-show host Paul O'Grady who was astounded when he met Tom, saying "He was minute. Honestly, he looked like a Borrower. I wanted to say, "Come on, where's the real Tom? Why have they sent along a mini-me?"

There is never-ending speculation as to whether he wears shoe lifts or elevated boots, even some magazines falsely crediting an innocuous pair of Air Force One sneakers as some form of thick wedged elevator sneaker. However, for Interview with the Vampire, it was reported at the time that Tom requested Elevator Shoes to look taller beside Brad Pitt.

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
Leno511 said on 26/Oct/19
Flat 5'7, needs a downgrade
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.

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

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 ).
Parker said on 12/Sep/19
Zero chance of Cruise being 5'6 IMO

Tom is clearly shorter than James Corden who is himself clearly shorter than Rob.Do the maths=Tom is under the 5"7'mark,he's maybe 5"6'.
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.

with most celebs corden looks near 174cm its weird douglas looks taller

He's not taller Dmeyer. That's one pic and you cannot see their feet.
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.

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.

If 172 is too much, what about Felix Baumgartner.? He is listed at 5'7 on most sites (not here tho). Unfortunatley his web designer cannot convert imperial to metric so he is listed at 5'7 and 5'8 on his own website Click Here

💝😁🎁🎂 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!

5'9 in footwear is what I put for Cryer, so yes we agree again. 5'8.5 barefoot, 5'9 range in footwear.

0Parker = Jon Cryer has no pics with Rob or Josh and is listed 5"8.5' here not 5"9'(36 votes are giving him easily more 5"8'than 5"9'),and Mimi is not the left girl in little heels but the girl next to her in massive heels in your pic.In all the pics Mimi /Milo, Milo is always easily taller than her and you can see in the complete vue i posted Click Here Milo's legs are not perfectly straight too and even his neck isn't straight...And she's closer to the camera...I don't talk about the angle of the pic that is in favor of Mimi(see the angle of the wall behind them)She's never looking like Rob next to Milo if both are standing straight,she's never 5"8' range

Hmm so 5'8" Mimi Rogers is same height roughly as Cruise who would have thought. I will eat my hat if that producer is really 5'7", she is at least 5'9.5" in heels there and he is an inch taller. Noway under 5'10" in shoes, lowest I would guess him is 5'9".

@Pierre - Thanks for the pics, Tom looks very close to 5'8 listed Mimi Rogers there.

Mimi with 6'3 Peter Coyote looks close to 5'11 in her heels

Not sure where you got that ridiculous listing of 5'7 for Chris Ciaffa, I cannot believe you would have got it from this site, but happy to be proved wrong.
Chris looks 5'10/5'11 to me. Same as 5' 11 Tom Berenger with Mimi here

@MD, I think that Bieber’s proportions and build benefit him to look taller over Cruise in public’s eyes, even though most likely they’re super close in height. Plus Bieber didn’t fight any big guys on the screen lol, and btw I hope that Bieber’s call to fight Cruise is a joke, otherwise it’s really a dick move to call out a 57 year old guy to fight when you’re 25.

That old guy is in better shape than he is. If its not a joke he is in for a public humiliation.

You wouldn't be able to tell who was taller if they stood next to one another. I would bet on Tom though, that people believe 5'9" for Bieber is just a joke. His gf is 5'6" and he isn't even 2 inches taller.

Tom would destroy him in a fight, doesn't say much my grnadmother would destroy Bieber.

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

Click Here

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.

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".

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".

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.

Peter175 said on 17/Apr/19
Rob, don't you think guys in the 5'7-8 range make the most interesting heights for debating? Since people often can see a very short photo of them and conclude a 5'6" range (and extrapolate that they're in lifts in them so 5'4 max) or next to a taller woman and call them midget or whatever.

Then other times they can wear larger footwear near a shorter cast and appear to be 5'10-5'11(To the average looker who isn't paying much attention)

I don't think you can make any person watching a Tom Cruise movie estimate him at being below 5'6" without a lot of assumptions about what lifts hes wearing or whatever. Zero chance for Jack Reacher or the firm for example where he looked his tallest (I'd have estimate 5'9 for the firm honestly)

This site seems to be the general opinion of what most people think of him as (5'7 instead of 5'8")
Editor Rob
It's a range in which it's not quite at the average of 5ft 9, and I think is when you can look short. A lot of actors in that range would be tempted to claim 5ft 9.

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

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.

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.

@Parker=In your pic Tom is standing closer to the camera and Ben Stiller does not look to me very straight.In this pic the difference seems to me slimer between them = Click Here .Tom's shoes have a vertical angle in the laces portion and seems to me advantageous like he had a lift in these .Jonah Hill listed 5"6.25' looks sometimes taller than Ben Stiller depending where is the camera = Click Here Click Here .Jonah hill and James Corden who is imo a weak 5"8' = Click Here

In Jerry MaGuire he does look his "shortest".
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.

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.
Pablis96 said on 13/Feb/19
Personally I think he can be a little below 170 so something between 167 and 169.I truly belive that.He is using constantly different kinds of elevator shoes from more discreet to elevators with huge input.Without all this height miracles he is a little bit below 170 for sure :) by the way ,great actor ,icone of Hollywood :)

Tom Cruise=172cm (5'8) for sure.
You know.

true 5'7".
Pierre said on 31/Jan/19
Click Here = Imo 5"8' 3/4 for Katie Holmes is debatable = here next to Patrick Stewart listed 5"8'(At Patrick Stewart page 31 votes are giving him 5"7.9') they are looking on the same step/posture and she looks at most the same height as Patrick imo(by considering hairs of course). Click Here .Here their shoes= Patrick has classic heels and Katie slimer heels but Patrick has not a big advantage on her imo(in the last pic she's clearly closer to the camera ).At Patrick Stewart page 31 votes are giving him 5"7.9'.By this comparison with Patrick Stewart i would guess Katie holmes more 5"8' or weak 5"8'.
Peter175 said on 28/Jan/19
Tom at flat 5'7 doesn't make sense.

This guy is every bit a weak 5'8 now that I've seen his older films where I know for a fact he didn't have lifts
ArjunaKorale said on 26/Jan/19
Tom is the MOST DYNAMIC ACTOR of our generation. People can criticise his personal beliefs as much as they like but when his time is ‘up’ & he is gone from cinema, people will realise what they have lost. However, I don’t believe that he is a tall (or even average height) American man. I know your site lists him as almost 5 ft 8 but I care to disagree with that. I think 5 ft 7.5 inches (closer to 171 cm) tall for Tom is an ever so slightly more accurate estimate!
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Jan/19
@Parker: In fairness, they seem like they could be a bit thicker than 1" even without lifts. I'd say 1.2" range is pretty likely, but that extra fraction is a wash since Rob still lists Katie at a full 5'9" as opposed to 5'8.75". I see more 3" difference in the pic, though, but you can't tell from that angle how big Katie's heels are. If you ask me -- and admittedly no one did -- they look like possible 3" heels from the back: Click Here They're also not completely flat in the front making 3" all the more plausible. but I don't see more than a 2.5" difference in this pic from the same event: Click Here It was getting rare for Tom to appear without some sort of lifts or elevators by 2011, but the boot itself looks pretty normal from that last side angle.

Lawson said on 7/Jan/19
5'8 3/4" katie with 2.5" heels = a 5'11.25" Katie in the pic above. Cruise is 2.5" shorter in that pic above beside her. So Cruise is standing 5'8.3/4" with 1. 3/4" (lift shoes)/heels. Cruz is 5'7-5'7.25" tops when barefoot and Katie is 5'8 3/4" barefoot. Do we really need to carry on the argument with that pic above ? I don't think so.

The argument would be the shoes only look standard 1 inch - How do you know they give 1.75"?
Timson said on 26/Dec/18
5-7.5 max. Probably under
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Dec/18
I haven't seen enough myself to agree with Rob and MJKoP that Cruise edged Spielberg without shoes. I couldn't find any on set pic fitting MJKoP's description, but the Minority Report Berlin premiere is a bit tough for me to overlook because there's a series of pics that day and Cruise is dropping some height in the full pics, but looks half an inch shorter so is Cruise really dropping more than half an inch? Also, the pics with Clinton aren't perfect, but I don't get the impression Cruise was taller there either: Click Here Click Here I get why some will give the edge to Cruise, though. He has looked taller than Spielberg more often than vice versa, but that could be Tom's shoes and posture. With that said, I wouldn't be surprised if Spielberg was 172 cm peak either. I still have Tom more like 171.5, but I'd be less surprised if Tom was a full 172 than a flat 171. He's not a particularly short guy, but his footwear makes him tricky.

@Junior: I don't see how Cruise could be a flat 5'7" if Jamie Foxx is 5'9.5" minimum because Foxx has never looked a full 2" taller than Cruise, much less 2.5". Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Here's shots of their shoes from the side: Click Here Click Here Click Here Tom's shoes look pretty normal that night, imo. He has often worn 5-6 cm elevators the last decade as you say(more 5 cm the last few years), but he can pass for a 174, even 175 cm guy at times and has looked like he'd measure 176-177 cm in them making him 171-172 range barefoot.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Dec/18

You wouldn't be surprised at that. There will come a time when Tom falls to 5ft 7 and under and the argument will be that he never was above it.
michael loughrie said on 6/Dec/18
Good listing!
NewFace said on 28/Nov/18
I am not sure he's as tall as 172cm. The reason being I always thought he looked pretty small in one of his first movies, Risky Business. There was another small actor I can't remember the name of in it that didn't even seem much shorter at all in comparison.

Secondly, even in converse it is very viable to be 6cm taller quite easily if you stick some decent lifts in the high tops. This would mean he would easily clear 178cm in his lifts. Does he ever look that tall? With hair this would mean he would look comparable to some 5'10" or 5'11" guys lacking in the bonce department with his decent posture.


178cm might be a limit though in normal looking footwear for 172cm, but it would be very easy to achieve in almost any sort of footwear. It gets increasingly harder to walk after that. I'm sure Rob can also easily get to 179cm quite comfortably but will have problems walking when he gets to 180cm....

Michael, 5'10" 178 cm said on 26/Nov/18
He can’t be as tall as 5’8” in real life. Tom almost always looks short in movies he stars in. He only looks taller in the Mission Impossible films because he wears lift and because they use special camera angles to give the illusion of him being taller. Tom can’t possibly be taller than 5’7”, why could I say this? Well, if he was as tall as 5’8”, then the media wouldn’t be calling him short and they wouldn’t be listing him as 5’7” on every website instead of 5’8”. He looks more than an inch shorter than Jeremy Renner who is listed as 5’8 1/4” on here and just look at how comically short he is compared to his ex-wives Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes who are 5’10 1/2” and 5’9” respectively. Yeah, so I’m not buying into the fact that Tom can be that close to 5’8”. He is 5’7” flat imo.

MJKoP said on 13/Nov/18
There was as full-bodied picture from the set of War of the Worlds where Tom was more than just slightly taller than Steven. Glenn(yeah, I know) even described Cruise as "towering" Spielberg. Perhaps uneven terrain? Can someone possibly find it???
MJKoP said on 13/Nov/18
I'd give Cruise a slightly higher peak height than Spielberg. Rob described him as "marginally taller"(as reflected in his listings) and I agree with such an assessment.
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Nov/18
@Greg99: Rob has Spielberg 5'7.5" peak. The 5'7" is his estimate for his current height. Tom only looks slightly shorter in some pics, but can also look slightly taller. It probably depends on shoes, posture and angle, but the fact that neither ever seems to look more than a little taller than the other tells me they're very close to the same height. I'd give both 5'7.5" peak and Cruise is probably still that tall while Spielberg is likely 5'7" max now at over 70.

5'9 - 5'9 1/2 with lift. 5'7 def a barefoot height.

Everyone now agrees that Tom is around 5'7", the added 3/4 is very solid.
savfdfff said on 26/Oct/18
idk. Could have been a weak 172 cm at peak. I would say he is around 171 these days if that.
Anonynon said on 18/Oct/18
I find it funny as hell how google has Tom Cruise at 5'7", and you also have Bow Wow at 5'7". No wonder everyone thinks 5'7" is short. If his height is actually what is listed here, Cruise is definitely not what I'd call short, just below average. Everyone takes a shot at Cruise for being so short which is stupid. I think it's just a case of Cruise constantly taking pictures with women taller than him (with heels) which makes him look short.
HonestSlovene said on 12/Oct/18
172 cm peak and strong 171 cm now.
Editor Rob
He still holds up well in films, look at Never Go Back (well, don't look too much...it's not that good) but with a guy like Aldis Hodge or Cobie Smulders, he just doesn't look a short guy.
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Oct/18
I don't believe Cruise is taller than Downey, but they could be the same height. @Pierre: Glad we agree on that. That event is one of the best for determining Tom's real height. Aside from Katie, I think there might be a few decent pics to compare Tom to McConaughey and Stiller. His shoes often looked pretty normal promoting Lions for Lambs too, but he may have worn small lifts then.

@Rising =I agree with you Rising his shoes in this event"Tropic Thunder Premiere" were looking very classic and flat,i think if he had a gain with this, it was not a big gain.
Rising - 174 cm said on 20/Sep/18
Tom does seem like he's always wearing elevators/thick boots these days and since at least 2010, but it wasn't that uncommon to see him with normal shoes for much of the 2000's with the most striking example being the Converse-type sneakers he wore to the Tropic Thunder premiere with Katie in 3" heels. Sly wore elevator boots or those thick Hogan sneakers(which come with 2 cm insoles) almost 24/7 from 2003-2008, but actually wore normal shoes often from 2009 through early 2017 and had been wearing low cut dress shoes to every event for 2+ years before he conspicuously began wearing lifts to most events again the past year. I was surprised to see Banderas in flat, low cut shoes a few years ago, but even when he doesn't have his obviously big heels, his shoes often have an angle, are higher in the back or have a bit extra heel. Pitt will spend thousands on a pair of boots, but if he's the constant lift wearer many on this forum think then he's much better at hiding it than these other guys.
Ruben Bosco said on 20/Sep/18
Max 5 ft 7, absolutely not over
Hijoputamos said on 18/Sep/18
Allie, these guys NEVER wear regular shoes on events, believe me. If there are cameras, be sure they are on special shoes lifts boots etc. It’s part of their job. And I’m talking about guys like Tom, Brad, Banderas, Sly, etc
Custom elevators are hard to detect and they look like regular shoes, that’s why they are so expensive, hello!
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Sep/18
@Allie: No problem. That style of elevator can be difficult to spot from some angles. In fact, Tom fooled me at the Rogue Nation NY premiere. I thought he had normal shoes until I saw them from the side. Tom would actually wear normal shoes during the early years of his marriage to Katie, but it's been a while since I've seen him at an event or on a talk show without elevators or a thick boot of some kind.
Pierre said on 17/Sep/18
If Big Jay has seen him the same height as himself,with the emotion,Tom's generous hairs....,i think he was probably one hair shorter than Big Jay, and was probably wearing shoes a little bit sophisticated. Probably a little bit under 5"7' barefoot, around 5"6'range,i see him around this height.Not very important,you can stand at 5"6' or 5"3' or ... by looking beautiful and charismatic as him.
Allie said on 13/Sep/18
@ Alex B - Thanks! On further inspection I think that Alicia A is probably 5'7 range (and 5'8 at the absolute very most) and not near the 5'11 or 5'9.5-10.5 listings I've seen.

@Rising - 174 cm - I suspected Tom was wearing more elevated shoes, but I also just shrugged it off and assumed that it was just normal dress shoes. Thanks for telling me that!
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Sep/18
@Allie: Tom is wearing elevators to that premiere: Click Here Look at the angle at the laces. You often have to see a 1.8"-2" elevator from the side to tell, but there's more room for his foot than a normal dress shoe. It's unmistakable from the right angle once you know what to look for. Even so, as Dmeyer said, they're not huge.
Alex B said on 10/Sep/18
Looks around 5/7 ft tall
Allie said on 7/Sep/18
OOPS, in the pic of Alicia Aylies and Tom, she appears to be tilting her head and her posture doesn't look the best, so the height difference could be closer to 4 inches..? Maybe she could be closer to 5'9..
Allie said on 7/Sep/18
To anyone who sees this, how tall does this French beauty queen look next to Tom Cruise at the Paris premiere of MI? Her name's Alicia Aylies and I've seen ludicrous 180 listings at one point but it seems to be just 177/5'9.5 right now. I'm not so sure I believe that because the height difference looks probably 3 inches max despite the footwear:

rising 174 vey interesting quote it is clear tom look about 5 ft 8.5-9in with 5 ft 11-11.25 leo while his shoes with the angle you showed will give at max 2 in as the outside heels isnt so big and there isnt room for more than 1 in lifts that give no more than 0.6-0.65 in in reality so very likely give just 1.7 in total yet he looks aleast 176-176.5cm shoes on so has to be not far off 5 ft 8 , also cruise has pulled off 5 ft 10 shoes in some bigger elevator 2.25 in types, i met jamie and he is defenetly solid 5 ft 9 in
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Sep/18
@Junior: Tom can't be 5'7" flat if Jamie Foxx is anywhere near the 5'9.6" you give him: Click Here Click Here Click Here Tom's shoes even look normal: Click Here Click Here If he did have lifts, they'd be far too small to make a 2.6" difference between Tom and Jamie possible. Remember, this was 2004 and it wasn't unheard of for Tom to wear normal shoes to events at that time. You can see how short Tom looked that same night with solid 5'11" Bruce Willis with a camera disadvantage, but better posture: Click Here You can also see how much taller Tom can look with another solid 5'11" man in 2016: Click Here And you can see he did have a roughly 2" elevator that night: Click Here If Jamie is even 176 then I can't see Tom less than the 172 Rob gives him.

@Brad: Tom didn't look 2" taller than Glenn. More 1", maybe 1.5" tops.
Bradley said on 2/Sep/18
RobH met him. You meet and and look at his feet. In posture you are about correct. Jr. must think G is 5' 5" with the cruiser.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 1/Sep/18
@Dmeyer You're too thoughtful on Tom. But truth he is 5'7 and never wear less than a 2" lift in his movie after the late 80s. So Tom is 5'9 with "shoes" on.
RobH said on 1/Sep/18
I stood next to him at a charity beach event on solid ground. We were both wearing flip flops of identicle 1" sole. I am exactly 5'8.25 and we were eye to eye while just about everyone else was taller than us. I did notice he leans when he stands which can give the impression of being smaller by a few inches.
Tod Charming said on 30/Aug/18
Tom Cruise is a 5'7 actor who looks 5'10. Why? Because he's an actor!
Rising - 174 cm said on 30/Aug/18
@Dmeyer: I agree. He wears elevators that add around 5 cm a lot, but occasionally elevator boots around 2010-2013 that may have been pushing 6 cm: Click Here Click Here He might have measured 177 in them or at least close and I'd think they're around 2.3". He also wore some clunky 90's boots with Nicole Kidman and probably had an extra lift in them at times.

@Peter: Cruise gives a pretty average 5'8" appearance more than a short 5'7" impression with the exception of a few early films and 80's photos, but I'd be more surprised if he measured a flat 5'7" too. As I've said before, the Tropic Thunder premiere is one of the best events to judge Tom's barefoot height since he has sneakers about as thin as Converse. Click Here Click Here Click Here Katie's heels don't really seem to have a platform and aren't sky high, but I'd think a decent ladies heel like that should give her a good 2" footwear advantage over Tom's 0.6"-0.7" shoes so the figures the media used of 5'7" for Tom and 5'9" for Katie are very unlikely since she doesn't look 4" taller to me. I think she could be 5'8.5" since she's claimed both 5'8" and 5'9", but she may not be much more than an inch taller than Tom judging by how she looked in sandals with Tom barefoot.
Dmeyer said on 28/Aug/18
Cruise on occasion looks 175cm but many Times looks 5'8,25-8,5in 174cm while in shoes that Can give so much so has to be 171-2cm
