You wouldn’t think height would be a big issue these days, but that apparently isn’t the case. Despite short king season being in session, women still love a tall man. For men, there doesn’t seem to be as big of a deal, although statistics show they prefer a woman who is shorter, be that an inch or a foot. When it comes to what is tall or small, that varies on the person, but 5’7 is generally seen as the middle point. This is especially relevant when it comes to Hollywood. Celebrities that are 5’7 tall are favored over other heights.
While there is no set rule, most male celebrities in the movie industry are 5’7 or taller. This is also the global average height of men, which makes these actors that bit more relatable. For women, this is much smaller, with women averaging around 5’4. That said, many leading ladies, like their male counterparts, are 5’7 or taller. Of course, there are exceptions, such as actor Danny DeVito and actress Salma Hayek. But most actors and actresses are on the taller side.
Along with movie stars, this list of celebrities that are 5’7 tall includes sports stars, musicians, and other famous faces. While some are slightly taller or shorter, all these celebs can be classified as 5’7.
1. Tom Cruise

The ultimate short king, Tom Cruise has been at the top of the Hollywood system for decades. While he often looks much shorter than he is, Cruise is a solid 5’7. He has a highly decorated career that includes blockbuster films such as Top Gun, Jerry Maguire, Interview With a Vampire, and the Mission: Impossible franchise. His movies have grossed over $10.1 billion worldwide and his star doesn’t seem like fading anytime soon.
2. Jennifer Lopez
Despite being a few inches shorter than 5’7, Jennifer Lopez gets two thumbs up for celebrities that are 5’7 tall.

3. Lionel Messi
Argentinian legend Lionel Messi is one of the greatest football players ever to grace the pitch. While his time in Paris at PSG has been underwhelming, nothing can take away from his career-defining spell at Barcelona. While at the Spanish giants he won everything he could. Ten league titles, seven Copa del Rays, and four Champions League titles. He’s also been awarded the Ballon d’Or on seven occasions, the most ever. He is a true icon on and off the pitch.
4. Sandra Bullock
Sandra Bullock is one of America’s favorite actresses. Making her name in the 90s with hits such as Speed (co-starring Keanu Reeves), The Net, and A Time To Kill, Bullock quickly became a household name. The last two decades have seen Bullock switch between comedies (Miss Congeniality, The Heat, The Lost City) and dramas (The Blind Side, Gravity). She is still a big draw at the box office and runs her own production company on the side. Bullock also won an Oscar for Best Actress for her role in The Blind Side.
5. Rupert Grint
One of the stars of the Harry Potter films is ginger wonder and actor Rupert Grint. While he is best known for his portrayal of Ron Weasley in the mega-successful franchise, he has gone on to do great work in other media. Although he works sporadically, his performances in the movies Wild Target and Charlie Countryman, and his roles in the TV series Sick Note and Servant, have all been well received.

The daughter of Jon Voight has starred in a raft of fantastic films and won an Academy Award and three Golden Globe Awards. Although she has only been acting sporadically over the past decade, spending more time with her six children, whenever a new film featuring Jolie is announced it is a big deal.
11. Mark Ruffalo
Best known for playing The Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mark Ruffalo has a solid film career dating back to the early 90s. The Last Castle, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Zodiac got him noticed before the Marvel films put him on the map. As well as acting, Ruffalo has produced several films, as well as tried his hand at writing screenplays and directing.
12. Michelle Pfeiffer
For someone who has been acting for four decades, you would expect Michelle Pfeiffer’s filmography to be chock full of movies. That isn’t the case. The American actress with a Hollywood Walk of Fame star appears to be picky when it comes to the roles she chooses. Some of her most notable films include Scarface, Batman Returns, Dangerous Liaisons, and Hairspray.
13. Jonah Hill
Jonah Hill has evolved from the fat kid in Superbad to one of the most talented actors in Hollywood.
