Tom Cruise Helps Falling Photographer

Tom Cruise Helps Falling Photographer

Tom Cruise smiles with wife Katie Holmes after he helps out a falling photographer while walking to dinner in the West Village, New York City on Sunday.

Katie, 29, was seen earlier in the day taking 2-year-old daughter, Suri, to Alice’s Tea Cup in New York City for brunch. It’s one of the Cruise family’s favorite restaurants!

She also broke out a fashionable white head scarf on Sunday afternoon.

    ok. No matter what anyone says about Tom Cruise, he is ALWAYS a gentleman. Others could and would have stepped right over this photographer, simply because of who they are and the job they have. But leave it to Tom to give him a helping hand. NICE Tom. Very nice.

    nice.. Says:

    I agree with #1 he always seems to be very well mannered. Even tho I’m sure photogs are quite the intrusion on his and his family’s life and make things unpleasant at times, rather then laugh or keep walking he helped him up. Very classy Mr. Cruise, very classy :)

    as usual Says:

    Katie must get extra pay to always make sure that when she’s by TOm’s side she smiles extra wide. Could there be a more fake couple than these two? And it’s clear her parents HATE him, as he always makes himself scarce when they’re around.

    liv Says:

    yeah. he is always classy. remember when he was squirted with water in europe? he didnt pounce on the idiot but he reprimanded him like a parent. he’s always composed and well-mannered.

    Of course he helped the pap photographer. He probably called them in the first place.

    I bet Katie gets paid double time when she cracks a smile. The woman truly works hard for her money.

    Jared is on the Cruise payroll, “She also broke out a fashionable white head scarf on Sunday afternoon”

    Valerie Dune Says:

    I really don’t like the shorts with tights look. A ton of girls have been doing that here in Australia for about 2 years now, and I always thought it looked a bit off…just very trendoid and slightly tacky, even on the prettiest girl. It’s kind of disconcerting to see it on Katie Holmes. Didn’t she attend New York fashion week? I wonder what her mentor Victoria Beckham thinks of her fashion sense now?

    Three Points,

    So Nicole Kidman told you why Tom Cruise left her? Or Tom told you? Sheesh.

    If Jared is on payroll, then the rest of these online stuff must be on Brangelina’s payroll too. If you don’t like TomKat or whoever it is that you despise, don’t look at the pictures.

    Ameey Says:

    That was well sweet, but i hate how everyones going on about his scientology thing.
    When theres all these religions out there and people believe in different things so why cant he. You dont see him going ‘Gods not real’ and all this but then theres people going ‘Scientology is a load of bull’ and hate him for it.

    Personally I think they look like a nice family, plus noone has the right to go ‘save Katie’ its her choice.

    Seriously Jared?!?!?! Says:

    What is this?!?!?! The ALL TOMKAT, ALL THE TIME CHANNEL?!?!?!

    Seriously Jared! ENOUGH!! That’s 3 times in one day that we have been treated to pictures of Tomkat. Could you be any further up their A$$!?!??!

    First we get to see Katie out to eat in the morning, then Katie walking to work in the afternoon, then the two of them having dinner at night.

    How much do they pay you for this crap? Its obnoxious!

    So Tom did what any other human being on the planet would do. He helped someone up when they fell right in front of him. WOW! Tom is human. So the hell what!

    I’m done. I’m not visiting this site anymore. I’m sick of you ignoring other celebrities to kiss Tomkat’s A$$. UGH!

    Thank you Jared, for the lovely pics. Keep surfing your site to look for these photos and those who complain, must be doing the same thing, so why don’t they just NOT check out this site. What is the matter with them? Don’t they know they have a choice on what to read?

    love your site and photos of Tom and his family!!!

    Mimi Says:

    I think its so sad the way Tom Cruise is ageing , he used to be so hot. Now he dresses so ugly i don´t know what happened to him. He eis still good looking but looks like a geek. And yes he has always been a gentlemean, nobody can take that away fom him. But if you compare him with other guy celebrities who have been “sex symbols” , he is in a realy bad place.
    Katie used to be soo pretty, very fresh and young. Instead of her giving him youth, he has made her look his age.

    Laurel Says:

    Mimi, I guess mid 40′s is when your hearthrob status starts to wane. Brad Pitt is only a year younger than Tom, and he is starting to show his age too. It will be interesting to see who will take the place of these mega-stars. I don’t know if either of them will age as well George Clooney. He’s been lucky enough to still get romantic leads into 50′s.

    Can you even prove that they’re being insincere, #15?

    The Holmes’ like him and both familiies have spent time together.

    No one knows why Cruise and Kidman broke up and how do you know what Cruise didn’t or didn’t do when is wife miscarried, #32?

    Let Holmes’ worry about the weather.

    People aren’t on Cruise’s payroll just because they say nice things about him.

    Thank you for showing so much restraint, #35.

    He posts these because they’re so popular, #44.

    Clooney is only a year older than Cruise actually, #60.

    sniffles Says:

    Wow, they actually look happy in these pictures. That’s so nice to see. Katie looks radiant, it’s nice to see her actually smile. I’m hoping that she is going to grow her hair out, the woman has beautiful hair when it’s long and natural.

  67. 67
    eliza Says:

    They look good together. They’ll be happy as long as Tom stays in control. If Katie starts asserting her independence and begins to outshine him as an actor, that’s when the troubles will begin. He’ll throw her away just like he did Nicole and start all over again with another.

    cc Says:

    I think the thing looked staged…he’s all PR. He’s a creepy control freak who would pay a pap (or have one of his Scientology followers dress up as pap) to fall and need assistance so that he could look like a great guy. He doesn’t make any move in public that isn’t staged. The squirt gun thing, however, looked impromptu and was hilarious.

    Eliza Says:

    Oh. My. God. Lets give Tom Cruise a medal. He did what any other human being on the planet would do and helped someone who tripped and fell on the street. Isn’t he a saint!

    Would you people all get over yourselves!! He probably tripped the guy in the first place!! Just remember, according to Cruise “scientologists are the only ones who can help” so he’s just doing his religious job for the day. None of this takes away the fact that he’s a pompous, arrogant, egotistical little twit who went on national TV to slate women with PPD as well as the entire mental health profession by calling Psychiatry a “Nazi science”. This is also the same guy that put out a raving diatribe last January about how fantastic all Scientologists are and said that “SP’s (anyone who is not a Scientologist) should be relegated to the history books”.

    Please spare me any more Tom Cruise is a nice guy crap. There’s nothing nice about a guy that supports a dangerous and damaging cult.

    Tom is a Maniac Says:

    Did everyone hear what the great Lauren Bacall said about Tom?

    This comes from an interview in Elle about Nicole Kidman. This month’s edition.

    “Tom had taken off for Penelope Cruz or some g—–n thing — one of his more ridiculous moves, Tom Cruise is a maniac. I can’t understand the way he conducts his life.”

    Lauren Bacall

    Just goes to show ya what a REAL HOLLYWOOD ICON thinks of Tom Cruise. LOLOLOLOLOL!

    I couldn’t agree with her more. You go Ms Bacall!

    tracy Says:

    I read it too and i LMAO! Us even has it on their site. Nic was so totally class in the stuff she said but her friends give Tom and ton of shiz. Good for them. She has 2 kids with the guy and is probably being nice so she can actually get to see them every now and again, but her friends dont have to be.

    Cruise is an ****. Always was. Always will be. It’s just that everybody knows it now and no body is afraid to say it. Tom is so OVER. LMAO.

    Lauren's got it right! Says:

    I read that comment by Lauren Bacall as well…. Ms. Hollywood Royalty..Boy, talent like hers and Bogart, Tracey, etc. can’t be found in Hollywood today.

    Lauren is one tough cookie. I love her! Tom must be totally embarrassed to be insulted by true Hollywood royalty.

    Too bad she didn’t comment on Tom’s beard. Wait a minute, I suppose she did. If Tom is a maniac, that doesn’t say much for Katie Homely.

  85. 85
    defap Says:

    I seriously doubt Tom left Nicole for Penelope Cruz.
    1) I don’t think Tom would want to leave a pregnant wife after more than ten years of no biological kid if he thought it was his kid. Tom has always loved kids and he is not the one who would do unfair things to his family. I don’t know everyone who truly knows him personally hates him. Tom acted rather angrily in the divorce.
    2) Jude Law’s ex went on record to defend Sienna Miller. I don’t think she was just weird or crazy. I think she tried to imply that somebody else was responsible for the divorce. There were a lot of rumors on set of “Cold Mountain”. There were people not just Tom that questioned Nicole.
    3) I read a couple of years ago that Nicole considered physical unfaithfulness is less harmful than emotional unfaithfulness.

    I agree with Nicole. If someone is emotionally unfaithful, there is less chance of repairing the relationship.

    faithfulness Says:

    #85 I don’t believe being unfaithful…either emotionally or physically.

    HOWEVER, if I was married to Katie I would definitely be physically unfaithful.

    If I was married to Tom I would be emotionally unfaithful.


  91. 91
    Mr. Horse Says:

    He’s not the leader of anything, #65.

    How do you know he doesn’t make any moves in public without being staged, #75?

    He did a bad thing dissing that woman but it was a mistake and he apologized, #78. That Scientology tape was made years ago and was meant to be private.

    No one knows why Kidman and Cruise broke up and their marriage is none of her business, #79. (And most people in Hollywood like Cruise.)

    I really don’t think Cruise to O.J. Simpson is a fair comparison, #81.

    This wasn’t the first time she dissed Cruise, #84. She dissed his acting.

    I think Bacall is just looking for attention slamming. No one else does it.

  92. 92

    What a nice thing to do, even though Tom is not my favorite person….AND, to MR HORSE……I agree with you on the Lauren Bacall remark….She slams alot of people…” Brooks Shields”….Denise Richardson”, and a uncool remark about Angie and Brad and their ” assorted flavor’s of kids”……….I don’t think she cares for anyone right now, but when you slam children, you are NOT cool or classy….Katie looks happy and is smiling for once…She is obviously extremely unhappy when her husband is not around…Maybe they are still as close as ever before, and she can’t stand to be apart from him…..Nothing wrong with that !!!…..But, that horrible scientology conven still is more than I can read about…..By, the way MR. BLACK HORSE WOLF MUMMY CREATURE WHO RESIDES IN THE LAGOON……Sorry, I just love messing with the titles….LOL..No offense!!!!….My friend has been back to the restaurant hoping to see MALIBU PSYCHO MARY, and she has not shown up….The people at the restaurant have not seen or heard from her, and one of the employee’s drove by her ” supposed house she lived in”, and it was closed up….All the blinds were closed in front and back, and the grass needed cutting badly…and her papers have piled up also, but the mail was gone out of the mailbox..( they looked )( LOL )..I think they had an intrique type interest in her also….See you later!!
