Tom Cruise = Insecure About His Height?

How is this possible?



According to IMDb, Katie Holmes is 5' 9" tall... Tom Cruise is 5' 7" tall. Yet, in this picture, he appears to be at least 2" taller. Is he wearing lifts? Did they make Katie stand in a trench when they shot this picture?

Good grief.

Tom Cruise should be insecure about his brain capacity...

I heard he wears platform shoes and has a carry-along box to stand on during photo-shoots

Yes, he is.

When Tom and Nicole split, she made an off the cuff remark about finally being able to wear high heels again. It's also a pretty prevalent rumor that he wears shoes with platforms in them for most of his films, and that camera angles are shot in a manner to make him look taller (think John Rhys-Davies in the LOTR trilogy, except taller and not shorter).

Hmmm... I wonder if his insecurity about his height is also related to Scientology somehow?

[Edit]: Is it me, or does Katie look *really strung out* in that photo? I wonder if this is also related to Scientology somehow?

He was standing on her foot to get the extra lift. Secret levitation technique acquired only after years of instruction, studying truth, and acting classes.

She's with Tom Cruise, there has to be something wrong with her. I imagine Tom Cruise has insecurities. But he has fans to help him make up for it -
From A Tom Cruise website:

"Tom Cruise has a lot of things, Tom Cruise has a yacht, a summer home, and a fleet of Mercedes. Tom Cruises is an incredible human being. Tom Cruise can shoot lasers from his eyes and fly. Tom Cruise controls the weather."

Tom Cruise will sue us all now ...

I think he's standing on John Travolta. Those Scientologists will do anything for one another.

If Tom falls, he won't fall too far.

uggg Tom Cruise is a douche. Seriously what happened to this guy? Even 3 years ago he was simply an A-List hollywood actor, yet in the last year or so he's turned into a weirdo. I gotta wonder if in 10 years time he'll get up to Michael Jackson weirdness.

My mom is like obsessed with Tom Cruise, well, not obsessed, but loves him.

I don't really like him. After the like depression thingy he said... I don't think I'll be paying any more attention to him.
