Singer James Blunt is intimidated by American women, because they are so much taller than the British women he is used to dating. The YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL star, who is currently dating Eastern European beauty Petra Nemkova, is self-conscious about his height and finds tall women in the US make him feel even more insecure. He explains, "American women are an inch taller (than British women). An inch makes a huge difference to me, because I'm a pretty small guy." The singer insists his mother has always compared him to Tom Cruise, but he didn't think it had anything to do with his height - until now. He adds, "I'm not as small as him, but maybe she's having a subversive dig!"
