Family, Education & More

He was born Thomas Cruise Mapother IV in Syracuse, New York, as the son of Mary Lee and Thomas Cruise Mapother III. His father was an electrical engineer and his mother worked as a special education teacher. He has three sisters. He had a difficult childhood and grew up in near-poverty. His father was an abusive man who often used to beat young Tom at the slightest pretext. Cruise’s parents divorced when he was 11, and the children moved with their mother to Louisville, Kentucky, and then to Glen Ridge, New Jersey, after she remarried. Like his mother and three sisters, Cruise suffered from dyslexia, which made academic success difficult for him. He excelled in athletics, however, and considered pursuing a career in professional wrestling until a knee injury sidelined him during high school.

He became involved in drama as a school student and was encouraged by his teachers who sensed that the boy was naturally gifted with acting abilities. As a teenager, he briefly attended a Franciscan seminary in Cincinnati on a church scholarship and aspired to become a Catholic priest.

Founded in 2004, Celeb Heights is the brainchild of a cheery Glaswegian named Rob Paul, who writes on the site that he has been a tenacious chronicler of celebrity heights since the age of 14 when he unexpectedly stopped growing. He stands (officially, with pictures and everything) at 5’ 8.75”, and has posted videos on YouTube instructing the best ways to pose with celebrities to prove their respective heights.

Tom Cruise Height

Tom Cruise Height

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 with 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.
