She is 1.75 tall and in heels she reaches 1.82, yet Tom Cruise – who instead stops at 170 centimeters – still managed to stand shoulder to shoulder with Kate Middleton at the London premiere of “Tom Gun: Maverick” in Leicester Square. Optical illusion or heel lift? The answer seems obvious, also because, looking at the photos of the evening, the two climbed the steps of the red carpet and chivalrously shook hands with 59-year-old actor Middleton (despite protocol, which forbids mere mortals). of touching a family member really), Cruise she appeared almost at the same height as the duchessjust a few inches lower.
Which would be impossible – math is not an opinion – without a providential reinforcement in the heels of the black dress shoes the Hollywood star wears in combination with the tuxedo. And no less elegant was Middleton, in her black column dress with a white shoulder strap by Roland Mouret and completed by diamond pendant earrings, pointed pumps and clutch.
However, as the Daily Mail points out, it’s not without bad intentions, but it’s not the first time Cruise’s soaring height has taken the stage: although he often works with taller colleagues, this difference is visually zeroed out at official events, allowing I suspect that behind this sudden “elevation” of the actor there are precisely the miraculous insoles that, positioned in the shoe, raise the heel and give the missing centimeters (in addition to the slightly raised visible heel). After all, even at the time of the wedding to Nicole Kidman—who is six feet tall—that good four inches of difference disappeared as if by magic in the official photos, but in that case the explanation was twofold: heel lifts for him and ballet flats for her.
