Tom Cruise’S Real Height Will Surprise Many Fans: One Thing Tom Cruise’S Ex-Wives Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman, And Mimi Rogers Have In Common


Tom Cruise is tall, but his commanding presence and attention-grabbing nature make him more than capable of making an impression. One of the biggest action heroes in the entertainment business, if not the biggest, is Tom Cruise. The actor has come a long way and developed a very reputable and well-established position for himself, thanks to his engaging acting, charismatic appearance, and nearly self-performed death-defying exploits.

Yet, there is one minor thing about him that does not perfectly hit the spot: his height. As incredibly surprising as it may be to most fans, the question about the Mission: Impossible lead actor’s height– that has been a subject of debate for numerous years–has been finally answered, and fans will be stunned to know how short Cruise actually is in real life.

Incredible Action Hero Tom Cruise’s Real Height Is Stunningly Surprising

Although it’s often said that “size doesn’t matter,” it really does matter when discussing Hollywood beauties like Tom Cruise. particularly for the Top Gun actor, whose actual height has long been a source of controversy. Is Cruise really that short? Sure, is the response. His actual height is 1.7 meters, or 5 feet and 7 inches.

The twist is that, even though he is shorter than many other Hollywood hotties and is thought to be below average for a male in the US, he is still much taller than the average height of a woman in the country, which stands at an impressive 5 feet and 4 inches.

Besides, Tom Cruise for one does not need an impeccable height, as his authoritative aura and center-of-attention-and-attraction personality are more than enough to leave a lasting impression on whoever he meets. Not to mention his talented death-defying stunt-performing ability and ripped-up body even at the age of 61, which is an added bonus.

The One Thing That All Of Tom Cruise’s Ex-Wives Have In Common
Jumping on the next topic: while Tom Cruise is perfect in nearly everything except his height, there is one that all of his ex-wives have in common–they are all taller than him! Not only this but several other findings, too, make all of them quite similar to the other, like how all of his ex-wives were 33 when he divorced them and the age difference between them.

1. Mimi Rogers

Mimi Rogers was Tom Cruise’s first wife whom he married back in May of 1987, a year after their first meeting. Stunningly enough, the Bosch actress is 5 feet 8 inches or 1.73 meters in height, which is taller than her ex-husband. Despite that, the pair made a beautiful couple.


However, this love story didn’t last for too long as the pair decided to split a mere three years later in 1990–the same year when Rogers turned 33–citing the reason behind them separating to be “some issues which could not be resolved even after working on them for a period of time,” as per their joint statement. Not only this, but The Rapture actress is also 11 years older than Cruise’s second ex-wife, which is slightly unsettling.

2. Nicole Kidman

Though Nicole Kidman was his second wife, however, Tom Cruise married her within less than a year after finalizing his divorce with Mimi Rogers back in 1990. As for her height, the Eyes Wide Shut actress is 1.8 meters, i.e. 5 feet 10 ½ inches tall. This is a striking difference as compared with Cruise, who is 5’7.

Nonetheless, the couple went on to make some remarkable films together like Far and Away and The Others before parting their ways eleven years later in February 2001–a mere four months before Kidman turned 34. Furthermore, the Big Little Lies actress, too, is eleven years younger than Rogers and eleven years older than Cruise’s next wife Katie Holmes, which further makes the matter even more complicated.

3. Katie Holmes

In 2006, five years after splitting from Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise wed Katie Holmes, his fifth and current spouse. This was possibly his most well-known marriage by far, and the couple’s ship was given the name TomKat by admirers. Speaking about the actress’s height, Holmes stands 1.75 meters (5 feet and 9 inches) tall, making her taller than the Jack Reacher actor once more.

However, this power couple couldn’t last for too long either as Holmes filed for divorce from Cruise in June 2012–less than six years after their marriage–when the actress was, once again, 33 years old.

Considering how the action hero hasn’t stayed married to any woman beyond the age of 33, many have had suspicions that he follows a similar pattern as that of Leonardo DiCaprio, who is rather infamous for not dating anyone older than 25 years of age. While that is not confirmed, one this is seemingly confirmed: Tom Cruise doesn’t marry anyone shorter than him!
