Cat Deeley "thanks heaven everyday for Tom Cruise".
The British TV presenter - who moved to Los Angeles last year to pursue her career in the US - is eternally grateful she lives near 'Top Gun' actor Tom Cruise, because paparazzi photographers are more interested in snapping him than her.
Cat confessed: "I thank heaven everyday for Tom Cruise. I mean, who is going to make a better paparazzi picture, Tom, Katie and Suri, or me?
"In America I have lot more privacy than I do in the UK. But I understand that this intrusion is part of the deal."
The 31-year-old beauty also revealed she feels under pressure too look good everyday, because she doesn't want to give her TV show a bad name by appearing in public unkempt.
She said: "I'm very aware that I am paid a certain amount of money not only to read the lines, but to look a certain way and to have guys outside my house taking pictures. The TV company is actually buying a bit of my life, too."
