As a child, Cruise had serious self-esteem issues. Most of all, he was self-conscious about his height; that’s why he tried to hang out mostly with short peers or younger kids, so that he didn’t look that short in a company. Besides the height issue, the future celebrity had ugly crooked teeth.
It was a great lesson in my life—how he'd lull you in, make you feel safe and then, bang! For me, it was like, ‘There's something wrong with this guy. Don't trust him. Be careful around him.’
