Quotable: Katie Holmes Still Totally Gaga Over Tom Cruise

“Well, we do collaborate on everything at home. But I mean, he’s Tom Cruise! His body of work is incredible. Every movie he’s done has done really well. I look back, and everything’s a classic … I definitely come home and say to him, ‘So, imagine a scene … how would you play it?’ And he’s helpful and sweet and gracious. He’s quite an incredible human being.”

Cameron Diaz And Tom Cruise Face Off On The Red Carpet

If Cameron Diaz is 5’9″, and Tom Cruise is 5’7″, and Diaz is wearing two-inch, if not three-inch heels in this photograph of the two on the red carpet at the London premiere of their new movie “Knight and Day,” how is it possible that these two are gazing into one another’s eyes? He’s got a bit of a heel, but not that much. Amelia says: “Lifts.” What do you think? [London, 7/22/10] Keep reading »

A Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes Reality Series?

If Britney Spears and Kevin Federline’s reality TV show was called “Chaotic,” perhaps Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes‘ could be called “Tightly In Control”? The word on the street is that Tom is considering doing a “short documentary series,” letting peeps into his and Katie’s personal life. A source tells Grazia Magazine, “He’s been filming Katie and other aspects of his life for the past month. The original impetus was that he would select a few personal clips to show fans, but word has got out through his agents and he is currently fielding offers from entertainment companies.” Of course, if this happens, do not expect any moments of Katie burping while obviously high, a la Brit-Brit. “Tom places a premium on control, so he’s reluctant to commit to doing a reality TV show unless he’s 100 percent certain it will reflect him and Katie in the best light possible,” the source continues.

5 Things We Would Like To See In The “Top Gun” Sequel

We’re approaching July 4th, and that means celebrating our country via lots of drinking, eating, and pyrotechnics. Here’s some news that could add an extra dash of excitement to your Independence Day—there is talk of Tom Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer working together to make a “Top Gun” sequel. There are few movies that get more A-mur-rican than “TG,” what with the arena rock, fast planes, machismo and vague wars. In a recent interview, Bruckheimer said that ideas for the project have been “kicked around” but that they are having trouble figuring out a way to: a) incorporate today’s technology and b) work Cruise’s character Maverick as an older dude into a story that still has the same kick-butt cheesy vibe as the original. [MTV]

Well, we have some ideas! Here are our suggestions on how to make this potential sequel fresh without losing the patriotic ’80s flavor that made it a classic. Keep reading »

Les Grossman Movie Is In The Works

Because Tom Cruise is an enterprising actor under all that craziness, and because America seems to always be ravenous for people in fat suits, we have a potential Les Grossman movie on our hands. After a successful reception for his reprisal of the abrasive producer at the MTV Movie Awards, Cruise hinted that the ball was already in motion for a movie centered on the character. Other than this acknowledgment, the actor didn’t divulge any details about what to expect from the film, which leaves us the responsibility of making some educated guesses. While I believe we have all enjoyed our second dose of Grossman, arriving two years after his “Tropic Thunder” debut, forcing an entire feature film on us might be a bit of overkill. But I was also one of the individuals who voted that the character was never amusing to me in this week’s poll, so perhaps I’m biased. Keep reading »

Les Grossman Is Tom Cruise’s Best Character Ever


I can acknowledge that Tom Cruise is a pretty good actor, but I have a very hard time separating who he is in real life (weird and creepy) with his characters. Except for Les Grossman, who has to be his best role ever. Tom first played Grossman, a middle-aged, balding movie studio exec, in “Tropic Thunder,” and the result was pretty genius. Cruise has now revived the character for a series of commercials promoting Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. Above, Grossman “counsels” Robert Pattinson, who is considering cutting his famous greasy locks. Honestly, if Tom would just stay in character — this character, not some smiley son of Xenu cyborg thing — I might actually like him. After the jump, check out a few more. Keep reading »

Quotable: Tom Cruise Was Broke When He Got His Big Break

“The audition [for 'Taps'] was in New York. I said one line. That was it. I had long hair at the time, so they said, ‘Hold up your hair.’ Then ‘Thank you.’ I don’t know why, but… I thought I’d get it. It wasn’t arrogance. I had a quarter in my pocket — and that was it. I’m telling you: I didn’t have bus fare to get back to where my mom was living in Jersey. I remember… standing outside the Holland Tunnel, and hitchhiking.”

— Tom Cruise tells Esquire about his big break. I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I read accounts like these — and celebrities all seem to have a similar story — I always think the key to success (or maybe just fame?) is being broke. But then why didn’t anything ever come out of my twenties? Keep reading »

Quotable: Tom Cruise Finally Explains The Oprah Couch-Jumping Incident Of 2005

“What happened, happened. … I wanted the audience to be happy just like I wanted to make my sisters and my mother happy when I did those skits as a kid. But I’ll take responsibility for my actions. … Afterward, wild things were being said about me, and once they’re in the ether, there’s nothing you can do about it. It felt like being the new kid in the schoolyard again and the other kids are whispering and whispering about you and suddenly you hear what they’re saying, and you think, What? That didn’t happen. Look at the reality of the situation.”
