Thomas Cruise, what a lark.
This is what he had to say about his wife, during an interview with Playboy magazine. Which is ironic in itself. Or something:
‘She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you’d see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity.
‘When she becomes interested in something, she doesn’t talk about it – she does it.
‘One week I said to her, “You’ve been up in the middle of the night. Is everything okay?” She smiled and then threw this thing on my desk and said, “I wrote this script.” She wanted to try it, and she did
‘She wanted to try designing clothes, and now her line is wonderful and, to me, an example of how she just creates beautiful things in her life. She has a voice and warmth as an artist, as a mother.
‘I don’t know what to say – I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special.’
We’ll be the judge of that.
And this is what Joan Rivers has to say about Tom Cruise, in her new book, I Hate Everyone… Starting With Me:
‘First of all, he’s always got this shit-eating grin on his face, like he just got a note from his managers telling him that Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman are extending their confidentiality agreements.
‘Second, in TV interviews, Tom laughs inappropriately and much too vociferously at non-humorous declarative statements, which is ironic because in real life he can’t take a fucking joke at all.
‘All you have to do is make one simple, little, harmless, innocuous aside like, “The Scientology spaceship was late today; it had to stop in Fire Island to pick up Tom Cruise” and he has a pack of lawyers at your door faster than Katie Holmes can say “No, really. He loves me in that way. I swear.”‘
And a little tit-bit on Nicole Kidman, too. Joany’s on a roll.
‘My face is made of paraffin and chewing gum and that cunt wins an Oscar?’
Tom Cruise on Katie Holmes. Then Joan Rivers on Tom Cruise. Guess which one we believe.,
