Tom Cruise: I Came Across As Arrogant

Tom Cruise: I Came Across As Arrogant

Tom Cruise has publicly admitted wrong three years after his lashing out against Today show’s Matt Lauer while talking about prescription drugs. (He criticized Brooke Shields for taking anti-depressants and told Matt he was glib and didn’t know about psychiatry.)

Tom said during today’s morning segment of Today, “I thought about it a lot. It was a subject matter that was important. And now it’s being debated in the public, which it should be. But looking at it, it’s not what I had intended. It came across as arrogant. That’s one of those things I could have handled better.. It’s not the person I am… I learned a lesson. I learned a really good lesson.”

It’s is nice that he realizes he was arrogant and hurt many by his stand. Hope he meant his apology.

# 2

I don’t think so. He is still arrogant. lol

If you watch it again….he does not make much eye contact and his eyes shift to his left……usually meaning he is not being honest

# 3

he’s just PR-ing his new flop film.
he’s a fake!

btw..he’s starting to look very feminine.
and Katioe is looking masculine LOL

He seems to be eating humble pie lately. Maybe he sees what an asss he made of himself, both personally and profesionally. Hey, when you’re a mature adult, sometimes you face the mistakes you made, and admit it. Good for him.

Cruise is a liar @ 12/15/2008 at 10:18 am

# 6

Since SCIENTOLOGY hasnt changed its stance, I dont think Tom Cruise has changed who he is…he is simply BEGGING the public to see see his moview

DONT GIVE YOUR MONEY TO HATE MONGERERS LIKE SCIENTOLOGY ARSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

# 7

Yeah,.,…he looks sick..AA

# 8

Sounds like he’s got a publicist again telling him what to say. He didn’t have one 3 years ago.

# 9

i believe the word he should be using is NAIVE/DUMB/STUPID but instead he’s saying arrogant, flipping egomaniac

It’s amaaazing how quickly Tom Cruise can play “humble” once he realizes that he may be about to lose all financial backing for his studio. If Valkyrie flops, it pretty much spells the end of UA. He desperately needs people to be in that theatre.

Does anyone really believe that Tom would be admitting he made these mistakes if his movie was poised to be the next critical and box office success?

He is, above all the things, and actor by trade.

And this is, without doubt, nothing but an act.

Yeah SURE TOM, you desperate, backtracking publicity wh*re.

He actually looks very healthy. In fact, most people are commenting about how great he looks, how in shape he is. And, good for him for admitting his part in that whole thing. There are some people, such as some of you here, that hate Tom Cruise out of jealousy or just because you can’t get over the past. That’s sad for you and unfortunate, but Tom isn’t like that at all. Matt Lauer and Brooke Shields say he’s a wonderful person, who are you to say otherwise?

By the way, I’ve had the opportunity to meet Mr. Cruise two different times and he is genuine. Nothing fake about him. It’s a shame that there aren’t more people like him because he is just very open and very true. It’s good to see that even though he has been the greatest actor for several years and has had such an incredible career, he’s still that same person. If you question what sort of person he is, then you must be saying that Brad Pitt, Lauer, Shields, and the hundreds of others that have worked with him and gotten to know him on a personal level are all wrong about what sort of person he is. Are you really that self-righteous?

Well said, Mav (12).

I respect the fact he admitted his mistakes. But it is odd that after three years and the promo of a new movie he is apologizing. I am sure he is sorry, but it seems a little insincere, if you waited so long and you are also promoting a new movie.

Dear brian, I would never talk about someone I haven’t met.

And for every glowing ounce of praise you can dig up, I feel quite certain I can match it with shovelfuls of dirt.

And bella makes the most astute observation on this thread.

I think marriage to Katie and having Suri are changing him.

his LATEST flop is the reason he’s trying to chance his image. Phony-**s liar!

I think he seemed a little tongue-tied during the whole interview and kept cutting Matt off.

ı love him and he still looks young and so hot

doing a little backpeddling eh? you know what really bothers me about tommy girl and katie? they think that the people who comprise the general public are total morons who can actually be fooled by their “act”. that we are so much less evolved than they that we can’t see past their pitiful attempts to come across as normal, humble and endearing. they do not realize that we can see through that transparent veneer into the shallow depths of who they really are as people/robots.
no, we don’t believe in your false modesty, mr cruise. you showed your @ss to everyone already and we will never forget what your @ss looks like!

I don’t buy this. If he apologized before his movies lost money, maybe. But now? Nah!

brian,

Tom Cruise is the greatest actor? Please, he made actions movies guys like to watch because there no need to think (don’t get offended w/ my statement, my husband and son told me so) when watching so MI series pulled in dollars and all of the sudden he was great. Well, it went to his empty, little educated head. Now he finds himself not so great and he’s humble. Hah! I hope his church sucks all of his money and cast him out to humble him more.

And please don’t come back to me with “he has more money than you blah blah blah” stuff because all the money apparently isn’t enough for him, otherwise he wouldn’t mind losing audiences.

haha! So true, 25. :)
