  1. Wow i would mever of thought hes my height.

  2. i think tom is just 5’6″ no doubt and katie is really 5’9″ you can even tell the difference and watching his movies it didn’t even bother me to see if how tall he really is. i never even noticed that he was that TALL!

  3. Does anyone think that if Tom didn’t have his preference for relatively tall women, that all the talk about his supposed diminutive stature would have never come about? Just based on how he appears in his movies he never actually comes off as short but just average.

  4. A friend of mine met him at the red carpet for “Jack Reacher”, I have a copy of the photo and she is a very strong 5ft 9″/ 177cm nearly as tall as me as a 178cm man. The photo is from the waist up so you can’t see either’s footware but she is in small heels and Tom just edges her looking about 5ft10″…. so discounting his shoes and the likelihood that he is a lifter…. he can’t be far off 5ft 8″ barefoot. As an educated guess, I’d say he is about 174cm-173 first thing in the morning (barefoot), I think this is a good listing for Mr Cruise.

  5. I think Cruise is closer to 5’8 than 5’7.

  6. He’s a weak 5ft 8 at best, there is just no way this guy is taller than that. Yeah he can look it at times, but we all know why that is.

  7. its amazing how Tom can look so tall in the movies yet is shorter than Katie..
