Tom Cruise is stealing Katie Holmes’ high heels

Tom Cruise is said to be pilfering his 5’9″ wife Katie Holmes’ heels so that she no longer towers over him when they’re out together. Tom is getting rid of Katie’s expensive shoes and blaming his live-in sister for the fact that they’re missing. Katie knows what’s going on, but she’s keeping quiet about it.

TomKat now play “a cute little cat-and-mouse game” when it comes to Katie’s choice in footwear.

“Katie says she’ll look for some of her favorite high heels and when she can’t find them, she’ll ask Tom about it,” the friend says. “He’ll say ‘Oh, Lee Anne [Tom's sister] wanted to borromw them.’ And then, for some reason, they never turn up again.”

The source adds that when Katie asks Lee Anne about the shoes, she says she doesn’t know what Katie’s talking about. “But Katie doesn’t call Tom out on it – she just shrugs and says, ‘Well, he’s given me another reason to go shopping for another pair!’”

[From Star Magazine print edition, April 23, 2007]

The article goes on to recount Tom’s second wife Nicole Kidman’s comment on David Letterman following her 2001 divorce from the 5’7″ pint-sized actor. When Letterman asked how her life was different, Kidman said “Well, I can wear high heels now!”

It could be true that Tom is hiding Katie’s shoes and blaming it on his sister. I guess the only way to tell if this story is plausible would be to see if Tom’s sister has the same shoe size as Katie. When I first read Star’s headline I was hoping Tom was busted trying on Katie’s shoes and was into transvestism. You’ll forgive me for using misleading wording in the title in the hope that you would get the same picture in your head.

And TMZ notes that a recent interview Katie Holmes gave to a local paper in Lousiana where she’s filming Mad Money with Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah may have been more revealing than intended. Speaking about the character Katie plays in the upcoming film, a female-oriented crime caper, she says “she’s sort of delighted to just be a part of something and have girlfriends for the first time. She’s a type of person who creates a happier environment than she’s actually in. … I like that about her.”

As we reported last week, all those screaming “Katie’s leaving Tom!” headlines in the tabloids were just carefully spun stories around the fact that she would be filming in Lousiana soon. There may have been some merit to them, though, if she’s talking about how her “character” tries to create a happier environment and is just glad to be part of something with girlfriends for once.

    I hope the garden gnome realizes that Katie’s the only thing he’s got going for him right now.

  2. Bree says:

    Those stories are getting so bizarre. He started now, and they have together for two years. No news so let invent stupid stories. Are people believing those craps

  3. Mr. T says:

    Ugh, stop picking on Tom Cruise! These stories are BS. I do not think an actor of Tom’s stature and accomplishments is intimitated by a taller woman for one minute.

  4. gg says:

    I don’t know why he doesn’t just pull a Prince and wear high heels himself. Cripes, Al Pacino does it.

  5. Anastasia says:

    Mr. T, are you snorting Ajax? Tom Cruise is insane and was always just a mediocre actor with commercial appeal. That’s it. We call him “the Tom Tom Monster” around here, because he’s so fucking scary.

  6. Mimi says:

    Tsk Tsk Anastasia, you may not like him but Cruise is actually a superb performer. What is with the broke writers of these mags? First, I always see Katie in high heels and Tom looks like it cool,

    Then, they actually don’t live with Ann but with Cass so how does Ann borrow the shoes????

    Then Cass shoe size cannot be the same as Katie’s since she is 5,3 and Katie is 5’9.

    Celebitchy, Tom cannot be pint sized other wise even Spielberg, Richard Gere, Toby Maguire, Robert Redford, Jaime Foxx, Prince, Mark Anthony, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney and many other celebs would be called pint sized.

    I have seen 5’4 men make fun of cruise’s height and I bust into laughter.

    And their house is not a threee bedroomed flat where her sister lives next door and goes into their bedroom to borrow shoes. They are wealthy people and Katie has enough shoes to rival Marcos. I am sure her sister would not borrow all of them!!

  7. Busy Body says:

    Poor Nic, from one shorty, to an even shorter Shortie. Keith Urban is 5’6. Careful what you say Nic.

  8. gavin says:

    This is a ridiculous “story”.

  9. Faith says:

    Mimi you have a point. Make actors are not particularly tall but why does Celebitchy call Tom pint sized? Mark Walhberg is 5’7 too but I have never heard of any one calling him a midget or pint sized. Even Charlie Sheen and Paul Newman are shorter than Cruise.

    This story is rediculous any way since am sure the Cruises don’t live packed like regular Joes and don’t borrow like they cannot afford.

  10. celebitchy says:

    “mimi” why are you posting under that name when you also go by “busy body”? One nickname per person, don’t pull those games, it’s easy to tell by your ip address.

  11. celebitchy says:

    Oh and “Faith” has the same ip too. Quit talking to yourself.

  12. ER says:

    Tom is short compared to his wife, so he can be called pint sized in comparison. What he lacks in height he makes up for in over-inflated ego!

  13. Fabiola Thing says:

    Some people enjoy Tom’s acting, others do not. I am in the latter group. I think he is a crappy actor. Just my opinion.

    I also do not believe this story, it’s absolutely ridiculous.

    The fact is that there is plenty of enmity towards him, which is why he is referred to as pint-sized when other celebrities who are height challenged (like Paul Newman) are not. He is disliked and therefore people will seize any opportunity to make fun of him. I may not believe every thing written about the gay midget dwarf, but I sure do enjoy a snarky article about.

  14. Fabiola Thing says:

    *ahem*, about him.
    Thank you.

    Faith and her other selves are likely Scientology’s paid minion.
    It’s too late. Tiny Tom (bet he doesn’t crack 5’4″)
    and Crazy Travolta are doing the sinking of your ship for the rest of us.
    Better put them in verbal lockdown–if their movies bomb, they won’t be able to pay you to get them “clear” and free of thetans.

  16. Kiwi says:

    You know, I don’t think people dislike Tommy because of his lack of acting ability or his religion; I think it’s because people don’t like to be obviously lied to.

    I keep thinking of Hef and his ‘girlfriends’. It’s a business arrangement just the same, but they’re not pretending it’s anything else. And they look comfortable with it. I think we, the public, have a subliminal ability to read body language, and what we’re seeing just doesn’t work.

  17. anon says:

    I don’t care if a guy is short…I just care if he’s sane, and Tom doesn’t appear to be.

    Oh, and by the way, I’m pretty sure Keith Urban is about 5’9.

  18. Mr. T says:


    I do not use vulgar language, when I see someone do that, it does not bode well for a good debate. Point settled. Tom is laughing all the way to the bank.
