In an interview with Stuff, Patrick Swayze revealed that Tom Cruise was so “self-conscious about his teeth” that he refused magazine photoshoots. And on top of that, the actor’s concerns were getting more hyper because of Nicole Kidman’s insults that added salt to his wounds.

In an interview, when an interviewer asked Kidman about Tom Cruise, the actress remarked that “I can wear heels now”. This was a dig at Tom Cruise’s short stature of 5’7″ since maybe Kidman wasn’t allowed to wear heels when she would be walking alongside the actor. The insult became a tagline for many magazines and articles during 2001. After their divorce, Nicole Kidman married Keith Urban in 2006.

Tom Cruise was recently seen flirting with Shakira but according to sources close to the Colombian singer, she is apparently not interested in dating Tom Cruise.
