Newly-single actress KATIE HOLMES can indulge her favourite fantasy after splitting from her pint-sized ex-husband TOM CRUISE - she longs to date taller men.
The Batman Begins beauty split from the Hollywood superstar in June and their divorce was finalised last month after five years of marriage.
Holmes, who is two inches taller than Cruise, famously ditched her high heels in favour of flats or kitten heels for joint red carpet appearances during their relationship to avoid overshadowing her husband.
She reportedly celebrated by buying 15 pairs of Christian Louboutin heels following her divorce - and now she can look forward to romancing strapping men.
Holmes is quoted by British magazine OK! as saying, "I would like a guy who is taller than me... It sounds shallow. I like being tall, but going on dates with someone who is shorter... I just want to be with someone who is taller than me."
