Nicole Kidman is known and loved for her iconic roles in Moulin Rouge, Practical Magic, Big Little Lies, and more. The Australian actress is amongst Hollywood’s tallest actresses, measuring 5ft 10 ½ (179.1 cm).
In Australia, the average height for adult women typically ranges from about 162 cm to 167 cm (approximately 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 6 inches).
Kidman’s height puts her approximately 12.1 to 17.1 centimeters taller than the average Australian woman, highlighting her above-average stature within the country.

Nicole Kidman is believed to wear a shoe size 11 in the United States. In other international shoe sizing systems, her size would generally translate to around a European size 42-43, a United Kingdom size 9-9.5, a Japanese size 28-28.5, and an Australian size 10-10.5.
However, her exact shoe size is unknown. At least three eBay auctions have featured shoes worn by Nicole Kidman in the 2005 American fantasy romantic comedy film Bewitched, all sold with certificates of authenticity (COA) by a reputable dealer.
Two of these shoes were heels and were listed as European size 38.5, equivalent to a US women’s 8.5, which is the average shoe size for women. It is possible that she was wearing a smaller size shoe for the purposes of the film.
Considering her above-average height of 5ft 10 ½ (179.1 cm), it would not be a surprise if the size of her feet is above average. Additionally, her shoe size may have changed over time, as people’s feet can sometimes grow or shrink slightly as they age.

The Australian actress is one of the best-paid celebrities in the world, with a net worth of $250 million.
Kidman has often commented on her height throughout her nearly 40-year acting career.
She once said, “I’m five foot 10½ – I’m very proud of the half because I don’t want to be five foot 11 – so structurally, there are certain things that suit my frame.”
She has also said, “I have this thing about liking to be small onscreen cause I hate being tall. I’m five ten, and it’s the one thing I’ve always hated my whole life is being really tall and taller than people.”

Kidman Towers Over Tom Cruise
The leading actress often towers over her male co-stars on the screen, but she has also stood taller than her love interests in real life.
Her first husband, Tom Cruise, whom she married in 1990, is two inches shorter than the actress, measuring 5ft 7in.

However, she has also said that “I have no inhibitions about my height. I learned early on to be totally self-assured about it. When I see a guy going out with a taller girl, I immediately like him. It shows he’s confident. Most men find it intimidating. Tom doesn’t mind my being taller than him. I could wear 3-inch heels, and he would like it.”
Although the actress was confident in her height difference from her first husband, she remarked, “I can wear heels again!” when they split in 1991.
The couple adopted two children while they were married, Bella and Connor.
She’s Also Taller Than Her Husband
Kidman was linked to musician Lenny Kravitz for a short time in the early 2000s. He is 5ft 8 ½ (174 cm).
The stunning actress went on to marry country star Keith Urban in 2006.
Around the same height as Lenny Kravitz, Urban also measures 5ft 9in.

The couple has two children together, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.
Despite her height difference from her husband, Kidman is still not scared to rock a high heel on the red carpet.
The actress is confident in her beauty and 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.”
