Did Cruise really set this up? - Page 2

post #31 of 49
I didn't see War of the Worlds, while I enjoy a few of his older films, Spielberg films tend to annoy me, especially his woman characters.

Anyway, living not to far from Hollyweird, with a film degree, and a mother who was briefly a Scientologist (my dad says he "saved" her) I feel I get to say something I hope I don't offend anyone, but it takes a... particular personality type to be a succsessful Hollywood Actor. Actors already have to be a certain personality type in order to be willing to bare themselves that way in film/on stage, and that much success and exposure... well...

Personally I don't think it's a publicity stunt, I think they're just crazy, but I've heard stranger too....

Two thumbs down for War of the Worlds, I also wanted my money back at the end.

The plot was full of holes and the ending was disappointing.

Don't waste your money!!

As for Tom and Katie, who knows??

I still think Chris Klein was cuter!

I read that, gasp! The Scientology person answered her question for her? How creepy is that?

I wonder if Tom thinks w/o Scientology he wouldn't be where he is. And thus clings to it. I have heard super rich people are always afraid of losing their wealthe and get weird, that is why you see like Howard Hughes getting all psycho partly.

From what I've read, I understand that Scientology maintains "actors' studios" in L.A., which may explain why some actors/actresses are caught up in the whole "philosophy".

And why are they targeting that market? One word MONEY! I read that Tommy wants Katie the love of his life to sign a pre-nup

How much money does a person need? Cruise got millions from Mission Impossible, he signed some profits deal and got like 100 Million or something. He has more money than a person can even spend.

Sheesh, these people are crazy.

Hur hur hur....


Back home i have a lot of friends who are in the entertainment industry and are local celebs etc. I always say that a lot of them suffer from hollywood syndrome even though they've never even gotten close... [I think some of you who are into racing might know one of them ] It's just real real easy to loose touch with reality but not actually feel like you have.

People do some stuff that seems really crazy to other people but to the people they are surrounded by it's totally normal.

Tom Cruise probably hasn't visited the real world in a long long long time.

Precisely why I decided against Drama as my major in College - I enjoyed the community theater that I did in HS, but those Theater majors were seriously, well, let's just say they were "unique" and leave it at that. I realized after one semester that I was entirely too normal to make it in the movies!

Actually it's funny i just had this conversation with some friends of mine on msn the other day... I think that there are loads of really good actors that lead normal lives... Like Antony Hopkins, or Jeremy Irons, or Kevin Kline or Meryl Streep or Kevin Spacey... I mean to me these guys are really really good at acting. But we don't hear about them because they don't need to lean on publicity to bolster their career or their success.

I think all those "unique" people just take it all too seriously in the wrong sense.... I did a couple of acting classes at uni too and the one thing i noticed was that a lot of those "unique" people were just acting the way they thought an aspiring actor ought to act... it's like their "individuality" was just a means to an end and not an end in itself...

I have no idea if there romance is real or not. I'll say one thing though, Tom Cruise never seems to age. I think he looks the same as he did 20 years ago.

I don't agree with the statements he made about Brooke Shields, but I think generally Tom Cruise is a pretty nice guy and a talented actor.

I didn't read all the posts here but I, too, think it's strange seeing as how both Tom and Katie are very very private people when it comes to relationships. I think it is all a publicity stunt.

Yeah I saw a rerun of her on Letterman, and you can tell, without coming out and saying it, that Dave was on to her. He asked her how long she had known him...at the time 6 weeks, and she was gushing about how "amazing" he is, and Cruise AlWAYS says that same thing, the word Amazing...

Well as posted here, why do we expect normal bevhavior from Hollywood.

He must have sold his soul to L. Ron Hubbard.

(Lame attempt at humour after a very long week...)

I say, if it is all fake, bravo to Katie Holmes for finding a way to get her career going again, as cheesy as it is!
I can't imagine putting up with him and all his lunacy is that much fun--she must either REALLY want the exposure or REALLY be starstruck! I'm sure if it is a set-up she's being compensated quite handsomely!
