Is this a sinister plot or an odd camera angle – or an accurate portrayal of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes? In this recent photo taken at the Beverly Regent Hotel Tom appears miniscule next to his towering girlfriend. She IS wearing high heels but the height difference is startling. Tom’s fans are outraged – they claim people are conspiring to make Tom appear foolish and insist the picture is Photoshopped. They feel this is just the latest form of harrassment against their idol. We don’t know if it’s a joke or not, but it is a hoot.

    It’s obvious this photo is an inaccurate representation of their sizes.

    It’s most likely the camera angle. I don’t think she’s that much taller than he is.

    Camera angle, fo sho.

    According to IMDB (Internet Movie DataBase) their bios list Tom Cruise’s height as 5’7″ and Katie Holmes at 5’9″.
    The photo is EXTREMELY deceiving.

    Wow! Katie sure looks great!Didn’t know she was built so great. She is a couple of inches taller than Tom, but not quite as much as this photo indicates. The person in front always looks much bigger and taller.
    Camera angle, indeed.

    I used to be a professional personal matchmaker, and I can tell you all woman lie about their weight and all men lie about their height. For men, the lie is usually 2″ in their shoes. I’ve seen TC’s lifts, although none are visible in this picture. If TC claims 5’7″, we are down to 5’5″. Almost all men’s shoes add 1″-2″ in height WITHOUT lifts. With lifts, a man can add 3″-4″. In my professional opinion, TC is 5’2″. In this picture, although she is slightly ahead of him, if she is 6’2″ in heels, and he’s 5’5″ in lifts, they are still 9″ apart, and it shows.

    Tom has short man syndrome so I think that the photo is real.

    Upon looking at this picture it seems he is just the right height if you know what I mean. Maybe that is why he always dates much taller women, so he really does have an excuse to always be looking at their brest instead of into their eyes!!

    No one would give a rat’s butt about this photo if Tom Cruise himself weren’t so insecure about his height. By usually wearing lifts, he’s painted a big bull’s eye on himself and invited the rest of us to take some shots.

    Someone has a great sense of humor. Look at her hips and the size of her head! This is not a difficult task in photoshop – Funny stuff!

    What scares me is the weird way they hold hands – normal, happy, ‘tpgether’ couples interlace their fingers, but these two – her hand is more like a fist, always. any body language experts out there to shed light on this?

    I agree with you on the hand holding. It looks formal, almost royal. She appears to be of two minds.
    Regarding his shortness, medical studies have indicated that children in abusive families can stop growing as much as a decade before other children raised in happy homes. Or he had two tiny parents.

    I saw the uncropped photo, and it is clear from their feet that they are next to each other — the picture isn’t slanted that way.
    Maybe her heels are VERY high!

    I’ve worked with TC, and he’s about 5’6″ or 5’7″. I’m 5’8″, and he’s just a tad shorter than me.
    this looks photoshopped or a camera angle thing. Look at how much bigger her head is than his.

    Unfortunately… as of late no one has to conspire to make “Tom” look foolish!
    Sad, really. I think Tom is very talented…maybe he is in a midlife crisis.

    “The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of
    history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always
    progressed through the following sequence
    1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
    2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
    3. From courage to liberty;
    4. From liberty to abundance;
    5. From abundance to complacency;
    6. From complacency to apathy;
    7. From apathy to dependence;
    8. From dependence back into bondage ”
    Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul,
    Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential
    Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million;
    Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000
    States won by: Gore: 19; Bush: 29
    Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:
    Gore: 13.2; Bush 2.1
    Professor Olson adds: “In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was
    mostly the land owned by the tax-paying citizens of this great country.
    Gore’s territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned
    tenements and living off government welfare…”
    Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the “complacency
    and apathy” phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some
    40 percent of the nation’s population already having reached the
    “governmental dependency” phase.
    What will happen if the Senate grants Amnesty and citizenship to 20 million
    illegal and they become voters?

    I’m shocked with how skinny she looks. She could stand a few pounds.

    That is an obvious fake, although it is hilarious. Poor Katie. She seemed to have such a bright future.

    they’re all short, to save money on set construction i think, i have been stunned to see some leading actors.. next to other leading actors outside their “sets” and whew.. was i initially fooled about their size! Also i wonder if natural acting ability is partially based on having been short.. and trying to make up for it all your life. Someone said short man syndrome? i’d be suprised if tom cruise was over 5 ft .. how tall was james cagney, micky roony? etc.. i think they all a LOT shorter than anything u will find on paper.

After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
