Tom Cruise Is Taller Than Cameron Diaz! Is It A Scientology Trick, Or Is He Borrowing Shoes From Lady Gaga? You Decide!

Tom is one of Hollywood’s most notorious shorties. So how is it that he looks TALLER than leggy Cameron?

It’s mystery solvin’ time! While out promoting their good movie Knight and Day in France, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz visited the Chateau Smith-Haut -Lafitte in Bordeaux-Martillac — but all those complicated words aside, don’t you think it’s weird that Tom looks TALLER than Cameron?! It’s common knowledge that Tom is one of Hollywood’s more vertically challenged stars, and we’re reminded every time we see a picture of him standing next to wife Katie (I mean “Kate”) Holmes. So how is it that 5’7″ Tom managed to inch above 5’9″ Cameron in this photo?

My first instinct, of course, was to chalk it up to some sort of Scientological trick of the eye — but then I put my thinking cap on. Could Tom be taking a cue from notorious weird shoe enthusiast Lady Gaga? We’ve seen her sporting some mind-bogglingly tall heels recently. In fact, one pair was so outrageously tall that she lost her balance and fell down in a London airport!

OK, now that I’ve had my fun, Tom is probably just putting lifts in his shoes, like the ones made by shoe-padding company LiftKits. It’s also possible he shops at Tall Men Shoes. Anything to help his bruised ego, I guess. He should walk next to Suri more often.
