Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has been voted as the World's sexiest short man in a new poll.
The Mission Impossible star who was ranked by Forbes magazine in 2006 as the world's most powerful celebrity stands tall at 5ft 7in by grabbing the top spot in a survey by www.OnePoll.
The actor beat 'Top Gear' presenter Richard Hammond in a poll of 2,000 women, the Sun reported online.
Cruise, 47, spent years married to 5ft 10in actress Nicole Kidman, who famously quipped "Now I can wear heels" after the couple decided to split in 2001. His present wife Katie Holmes, 5ft 9, too towers above the actor.
Jazz musician Jamie Cullum, who is 5ft 4in tall and is presently romancing 5ft 11in model Sophie Dahl grabbed the third spot.
He was followed by Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton with a height of 5ft 8in on the fourth spot while 'Take That' member Michael Owen was fifth in the list at 5ft 6in.
"This proves you don't have to be 6ft to be sexy. These guys are regularly seen with stunning girls, which gives everyone struggling on the height side a bit of hope," a spokesperson for the market research company said.
