How tall is Nicole Kidman ?

Nicole Kidman height: 5ft 10.5in (179 cm)

Australian actress best known for roles in movies such as Moulin Rouge, Days of Thunder and The Others. After her split with Tom Cruise she remarked, 'I can wear heels again!'. On 60 minutes she revealed that "I'm five ten and a half, but I think now maybe I've grown a half an inch and I'm five eleven. I was this height when I was 13 years old!". In 1992 (Playboy) she also remarked: "Most tall women stoop to look smaller. I learned early on to be totally self-assured about my height...I'm five foot ten. When I see a guy going out with a taller girl, I immediately like him."

Judd says on 18/Oct/14
strong 5'10" in the afternoon...i would put her at 5'10.25"!
Arch Stanton says on 3/Oct/14
Don't know how tall her father was who just died but facially she is absolutely identical to him, I've never seen a stronger father-daughter resemblance. She gets the red hair and height form her mother who she otherwise looks nothing like. Click Here

I've once read that Nicole, her sister and her mother are all exact the same height: 5'10"25. So I don't think she's 5'11 or taller...
Dmeyer says on 19/Jun/14
5'11.25 morning 10.5 night i cant see her shorter
valiant says on 16/Jun/14
rob, she could be 5'10 in the late afternoon?
[Editor Rob: not sure if she'd drop much below the 179 mark]
gabriel says on 13/Jun/14
yeah, sure you met her, Chris. Meh, you're probably 5'2 ft
Joe says on 12/Jun/14
She cannot be 5'11! I'm precisely 5'11(180cm) plus 1-2cm of hair and another 2-3cm of shoes, which adds up to a maximum of 185cm (6'1).

I took a picture next to her in Madame Tussaud's (freakishly realistic) and we're the same size, my eye level is even a bit higher. With hairdo and heels on, she'd have been at least 2-3 inches taller than me.

Trust me, if I lied my height, I'd round it up.
Chris says on 6/Jun/14
I am 6'4 ft (194 cm) and I towered over her, case closed.
Elias says on 23/May/14
In the movie trespass she is about the same height as 5ft 11.5in Cam Gigandet.
nikos says on 23/Mar/14
on the picture that just posted on feb19 nicole is 2 cm shorter than 5"9"75 latifa and is almost certain that her heels are much higher than the queens who never wears very high heels in opposition with nicole who ALWAYS wears 12-14 cm heels especially when she split up with tom cruise.......so rob 5ft9 is correct 5ft10.5 is a joke.also check out batman forever next to 182 [listed by you]val kilmer on every scene she is about 3-4 cm shorter than him with high heels,dont you agree?
Just says on 19/Feb/14
Pretty much the same height as 5'9"75 Queen Latifa. Click Here
Just says on 19/Feb/14
This height seems right for her. She was about the same height as 5'9"75 Queen Latifa in "My Life", there wasn't much height difference between them.
Natasha says on 6/Feb/14
179 is right.
J.Lee says on 30/Jan/14
Rob, Nicole 5 ft 11.5 by any chance? Also, you said that afternoon wasn't much of a height difference, but I noticed that today around 2 PM I was 5 ft 10.6. I was 5 ft 11 in the morning. But late at night I was only about 5 ft 10 and 1/8. So sometimes my height can drop more than other days. Do I just go with the height in the afternoon even though it dropped more?
[Editor Rob: I go with the average rate of loss which is a several mm from being up 6 hours to up 12 hours...you can get a bigger loss but it's not as common]
Mr. R says on 28/Jan/14
Nicole is closer to 5-11.5. She came over to us the night she won her Oscar and she towered over me in heels.
J.Lee says on 26/Jan/14
Thanks for covering that up. But here is one more question Rob, that I can't seem to understand. You said that you go by people's height at about 3 hours after they wake up, but not necessarily their lowest height. But it seems like Nicole, you put at her lowest height, where as other people like ''Brooklyn Decker'' you put at 5 ft 9, even though you said she probably goes below 5 ft 9 at times. So why for some you put at their lowest, and others you put in between? If you put Nicole's average height, she could be 5 ft 10 3/4 or 5 ft 11.
[Editor Rob: I'm thinking of afternoon - for most people the difference isn't much compared to evening.]
J.Lee says on 26/Jan/14
Rob, how do you come up with how much height one loses for each particular person? For instance if 2 people are the same height, what make you assume one is the taller person in the morning?
[Editor Rob: the average is just under 2cm, the longer someone's spine, the more chance they might shrink a bit more. 6ft 3-4 people have more chance of full inch (or even a bit more) than a 5ft 6 man.]
J.Lee says on 24/Jan/14
Rob, is any girl that is 5 ft 10.5 on here, 5 ft 11 1/4 or 1/3 in the mornings? I'm 5 ft 11 in the mornings, but usually maintain a height of 5 ft 10 1/2 most of the time and usually the whole day.
[Editor Rob: anwyhere from 1/2 to nearly an inch people can vary - some even less than 1/2 inch, but that's a bit rarer than all those who shrink between 1/2 and nearly 1 inch range.

yeah there will be some over 5ft 11 and some around 5ft 11.]
J.Lee says on 23/Jan/14
Does a fraction mean a quarter inch?
[Editor Rob: 1/4 or 1/3rd inch]
J.Lee says on 20/Jan/14
Rob what do you think her morning height is?
[Editor Rob: probably a fraction over 5ft 11]

@Stormy T. First of all, Jane Lynch is 6' tall and NOT 6'3.
Jane Lynch always wears sneakers and Nicole usually wears two inches heels. Nicole is between 5'10 and 5'10"5. There is no way that Nicole is 6'1. She has a great posture, but she's about Charlize Theron's height and shorter than Uma Thurman.
Stormy T. says on 30/Dec/13
Nicole said on "The View" not long after she had her daughter Sunday, that she was 6'1" She's taller than all the other actresses that are 5'11" and she towers over 5'7" Sandra Bullock and 5'8" Catherine Zeta-Jones in photos and on television. She has admitted that she always lied about her height on paper starting when she was a teen actress and was told that she was too tall to be a lead actress. So the 5'11" height we usually read about goes back to her teen years when she said she knocked a few inches off her height on paper. Jane Lynch is 6'3" and Nicole stood next to her at some event and looked as tall as Jane, they weren't wearing heels.

I agree with Pedro: an upgrade for Charlize.
Pedro says on 2/Nov/13
Here is a recent picture of Nicole Kidman next to Charlize Theron: Click Here .
Despite having less footwear and no standing straight, Charlize doesn't look much shorter than Nicole. Maybe a downgrade for Nicole or an upgrade for Charlize?
Brad says on 30/Sep/13
She is 5'11." Wrap it up and put a bow on it. You can bet she's grown since age 13. She is noticeably tall for a woman. When she has heels on she can make big guys like Jackman look short. Her husband Keith Urban wears serious lifts to stay in camera shot with her.
tiny says on 16/Sep/13
@Emily: Completely agree with you. There are tons of German girls/women taller than 180 cms and all of them are very well built, not freakishly skinny like Nicole Kidman. I guess Nicole weighs just about 60 kgs whereas a girl that height should eb atleast 80 kgs
Emily says on 6/Sep/13
@Ahboh Freakishly tall? Not really. Here in Germany you'd find a ton of women this height. (and taller) I think her build can make her look freakishly tall, and of course she likes to wear heels.
truth179cm says on 29/Aug/13
178cm
Th says on 8/Aug/13
Well the movie just go with it when she was barefoot by Dan Patrick who's like 6 3 she was almost as tall as him and he was wearing footwear and she was barefoot I think she is actually 6 ft but she seems like a woman who downgrades her height don't u think rob?
hurricane brat says on 30/Jul/13
She really does have a thing for men shorter than her though! She was married to Tom Cruise, is married to Keith Urban now (5-8.5') and dated Lenny Kravitz (5-9)
MaskDeMasque says on 26/Jul/13
@Ahboh

I wouldn't say freakishly tall but certainly very tall. I think she's 5'10 though and not 5'10.5.
Ahboh says on 10/Jul/13
Freakishly tall (for a woman) and she wanted to wear 4/5 inches heels?
Shelly says on 1/Jul/13
Legit 5' 11.
Chris says on 26/Jun/13
5ft 11.
Ria says on 25/Jun/13
She is definitely 5'11" or 180 cm in her bare feet.
Silent d says on 23/Jun/13
179cm.
Jax says on 5/May/13
exactly 5'10 (178cm) seems right
Masanori says on 3/May/13
@Peyman
You seem kind of immature for someone my age...
I cared a lot more about height before. Now I wouldn't be afraid of being with a woman my height or more. If I like her, I'll want to be with her and I won't even notice it.
Plus I'm lucky enough to be slightly over 6'1", so I don't run into that problem much anyway.
I hope you get over your obsession with height like I did :3

@Peyman

Also, your post reads like someone who's trying to mask their jealousy of Cruise's love life with a forced mocking tone ridiculing his height.

I'm sorry buddy. But he's still a talented, good looking, A-list film star who gets with the hottest ladies in Hollywood, despite his increasingly creepy obsession with scientology.

"most of the 6ft+ guys love women who are that tall"
Sadly, it doesn't seem like this girl would be interested in you. Good luck with the rest of your life though.
-------------------------------------------
1st : LOL
2nd : nice try
3rd : you can get any idea about my post , I really don't care .
but who are you? a Tom Cruise fan ?!!
4thd : I'm a special kind of guy who cares too much about ladies height , no chance for 5'10"+ & under 5'4" & if I were 5ft 7.5in like Cruise I would look for ( 5ft - 5ft 6in ). so to me a solid 5ft 10in would sound ridiculous doesn't it ?!
5th : also I've just recently reached 20 which means I'm too young for her ,I don't wanna waste my time with somebody who is not that much younger than my GRANDMA.
so there is NO CHANCE for Nicole Kidman to be with me !!!!
6th : LOLS again.

@Peyman-6ft
Your sense of "ridiculous" is irrelevant.
Peyman-6ft says on 18/Jan/13
I actually meant 5'9''+ is ridiculous for somebody like tom cruise.
kidman on heels makes him like a little kid.
She's not a giant , she is a super hot actress , most of the 6ft+ guys love women who are that tall .
Peyman-6ft says on 9/Jan/13
kidman : 5'10'' _ 5'10.5''
cruise : 5'7.5''_ 5'8''
lol at choosing anything over 5'9'' for a woman
Joey says on 18/Dec/12
exactly 5'10 Id say
Alysson says on 10/Sep/12
she's 178-180cm tall
I'm also as tall as she is and i'd wish i could take it in stride like she does..
Shaun says on 26/Aug/12
Mmm in thinking about it though a 5'11-6' woman in 4 inch heels though might worry me LOL. I can't be stood next to a woman who is near 6'4" in heels! Nicole Kidman has looked near Prince William's height in heels at 5'10.5".
Shaun says on 26/Aug/12
I often find tall women attractive, more so than shorter women I think. Obviously there are some 5'1" stunners and 6'0 stunners which exist. 5'5"-5'8" I think is an ideal range for women but I can recall 5'10-6' blondes I've seen which look amazing, sort of like Vic Reeves's wife Nancy Sorell types. I'd happily date a 5'11-6' woman but no taller but to date a woman around my height if she's wearing heels, hmmm, don't know about that!!
bill says on 30/Jul/12
She's 177cm and her husband is 172cm

@rob some of the comments here are against the rules
@don and @zarina for example(actually 95% of zarina's comments are against the side's rules)
