TC has lost a lot of weight and looks like he got some nips and tucks. One thing about him though, he is always smiling and courteous. I guess he’s still trying to repair the damage he did a few years back with his bizarre interviews. With a new movie coming to the screens this devoted Scientologist needs to sell some tickets, hey, you know, the Scientology Celebrity Centre in Calif. doesn’t run on peanuts and he is their biggest fund-raiser or as he calls himself a “humanitarian”.

Man Tom is REALLY going to town with this Valkyrie promotion. He even stopped off at the New York Times (why?) for an intimate interview where no question was off limits

Talk about pimping yourself out. My question would have been: Tom, how much did you really pay Katie to marry you?

…`tom looks as young as connor.

I can’t wait to see Tom on Jimmy Kimmel. I can only imagine how silly Jimmy can be with him. It would be really funny if Tom could be in one of Jimmy’s skits that he likes to do.

# 6

Go Tom Go!!!

# 7

He looks delish for his age. Love him and his family.

# 8

Cant wait to see it too. Enjoyed him on Letterman
and the Ryan Seacrest interview esp when Ryan
played Les Grossman dancing music.

Thanks JJ :)

I love history and World War 2 stories and movies so Im there for Valkyrie. Its a crowded movie time since Im also watching Marley and Me,Benjamin Button and taking the little ones for Bedtime Stories.
Im skipping The Spirit but will also watch Leo and Kate’s movie.

The Keanu Reeves movie was a letdown for me.


Amazing versatile actor. Good soul and he looks gorgeous.

Happy Birthday to his beautiful classy wife Katie also to Tom’s friend Spielberg. I think its also Brad Pitt’s birthday.

Im happy he lost some weight and got his Top Gun haircut. My favorite haircut on him while I know others prefer his last Samurai look. Dont like men unshaven. Sorry. He looks really hot and young.
Kimmer looks good and healthy these days too.

His re-invention is quite impressive. “Nicest person in the whole wide world”.

Just forget and forgive???

He looks great for his age.

He looks great and loving all the pics
particularly number 2.

He looks so wonderful. His hair is back! Go Tom! :)

HBT Katie, Brad and Christina Aguilara!

take my breath away

No way he is 46 years old. He looks 35. Thanks JJ.

Tom, never smile again. He is scary lookin. I am gettin real tired of his nutterbutter ass.

He about to ruin Big Willie’s career.

Did he go to his premier tonight?

Sure he is hot but he’s more than a pretty boy because he can really act and his movies are 90% entertaining unlike many others the media hypes them or some nuts but their movies are rarely watchable.
Many people globally have seen most of Cruise movies.
Above all he is a kind genuine human being.

Adoption now is like a trend when Cruise and McCain’s wife
did that LOOOONG AGO.

God bless him and Merry Christmas to him and his family.

Cannot wait for Valkyrie…..

Zac Efron said he wants to model his career after Tom Cruise,DiCaprio and Johnny Depp!!~

Tom looks more fit,happier,handsome and younger than even most actors who are only in their 30′s. i.e 90210 actors,Jude Law,Colin Ferrell, etc even the actors in Top Gun like Anthony Edwards,Val Kilmer dont look good like Cruise.

WARNIng, danger! @ 12/19/2008 at 1:31 am

Cuckoo alert!!!!!Of the first 28 comments, 18 of them were written by the same person. If you look at the times, you can tell that he sat and wrote one after another, all in the same identical style.

How cool it would be if Tom wins the Globe and Katie the Tonys. Their nods alone are so cool for them. He is yummy looking and so happy he found Katie. They are so in love and content together.
I like what Letterman said about Valkyrie that not only adults ought to see it but young people because World History is part of our lives,we need to know them and it also pays tribute to all the men and women that sacrificed their lives for peace. Its a shame young people dont care for America’s history let alone Germany or other countries.

Russell Crowe looks wacky these days. Nowhere Tom’s hotness.

here he comes @ 12/19/2008 at 1:36 am

Based on the 18 positive comments posted above, all written by the same pathetic lunatic, I am guessing that Mr. Blonde will be posting in 3 2 1…….

WARNing,danger! @ 12/19/2008 at 1:42 am

Oops, I meant 20 out of 28 comments. That’s really good actually, for tom because it means he has about 3 fans out of 28 people. He’s more popular than I would have guessed!


Well of course he looks good. He has had a few nips and tucks and some botox and most likely hair plugs. You can tell if you compare his face with pictures taken even a few months ago. Nothing wrong with it, if I had his money I’d do the same.

He’s my ultimate crush along with Christopher Reeves.

Thanks JJ and Happy Friday.

Poor jealous stalkers miserable for missing out on the sold out tickets of Tom’s Time Warner Center interview.

So blessed!!!! Unbelievable because he looks nothing like his age:)

WARNing,danger! @ 12/19/2008 at 2:06 am

spooky and v, you’re not fooling anyone. You’re the same person who’s been on here since 1:30 posting one comment after another about how wonderfull Tommy is.


The guy who’s doing all those positive comments above on the great Tom also goes by Mr. Blonde and Mr. Horse and is on here every day. He’s either working for Tommy Boy or is Tom or is one sick fanatic.

nikita, you had me at cuckoo

had me at hello @ 12/19/2008 at 2:13 am

He had me at hello and lost me at glib.

had me at hello @ 12/19/2008 at 2:16 am

Mr. Blonde and all of his personalities need exercise, herbs, and Dianetics to cure himself of his fanatical funk.

had me at hello @ 12/19/2008 at 2:20 am

What is the “Touched in the Head” contest? Tom will win with a score of 1,000,000. I hope the prize is therapy and meds.

jealous haters??!!

You’re the same person who’s been on here since 1:30 posting one comment after another about how wonderfull Tommy is.


Somebody needs to get a life! It’s totally the same person over and over and they’re so obvious. They’re not even smart enough to hide it! LMAO!

Seriously #39, whoever this freak is, they do it on every Cruise or Holmes thread! Next they’ll start with the “God Bless Tom” posts, then move on to the God is going to get you for dissing Cruise posts. It’s hilarious. This person is not JUST obsessed and delusional, they’re in stalker territory!!

jealous of what?

SO true,47, and you called it-ath the same time that you were writing your comment, look at what darlin 46 wrote> Looks like Mr blonde and all his personalities have moved on to the next type of comments as you predicted.

GEEZ! Tom is everywhere right now. He must be really desperate to get people to see his jacked up Nazi movie. I swear he would go to the opening of an envelope if he thought the paps might be there!

He also obviously had work done. A few months ago he was fat, had a saggy chin, love handles and a ton of wrinkles, not all of a sudden the wrinkles are much less. Yep. He had botox (LOOK! His forehead doesnt move!), a lift, probably some filler and lots of lipo!! There’s no fool like an old fool!

Go away Tommyboy. You’re O V E R !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

greetings @ 12/19/2008 at 2:52 am

Hi Mr. Blonde! How are you and crew doing tonight?

Did ya’ll hear he didn’t even bother to go to his son’s movie premiere cause he’s too busy pimpin his own movie? What a sucky father! He’s a jerk. Can’t be bothered seeing any movie he’s in.

$CIENTOLOGY IS A SCAM @ 12/19/2008 at 5:03 am

Hey Tom – saying “I came across as arrogant” is NOT an apology.

Reviews About The Movie Valkyrie
Dec 10th 2008
- It could have been better.
Dec 12th 2008
- “Arguably miscast, Cruise is stiff and unconvincing as the courageously heroic German officer. He speaks with a distinctly American accent, though early on, he utters a few sentences in German. Making things worse is the fact that Cruise is surrounded by a distinguished supporting cast of English thespians”.
- “Cruise Loses in First ‘Valkyrie’ Reviews”.
Dec 15th 2008
- The gossip columnist was banned from the Valkyrie screening because of prior “public” negative statements about Scientology and Tom Cruise.
- “Aside from the fact that TC (Tom Cruise) is still (in my mind) a crazy *******, here are ten reasons why his latest movie will flop.”
Dec 16th 2008
- “Given Germany’s skepticism about Tom Cruise portraying the German officer who almost killed Hitler in 1944, the cautious praise from German reviewers for his film ‘Valkyrie’ comes as a surprise. Cruise’s performance has been panned, though.”
December 17, 2008
- “The only thing that can definitely be said about this cinema adventure is that Tom Cruise, who has been damaged by his bizarre talk show behaviour, may well continue storming the heights of the Scientology hierarchy as a Thetan, but his image as an actor has been finally ruined by Valkyrie.”
December 18, 2008
- They rate the movie Valkyrie as mediocare.

Why Boycott Valkyrie?
FACT: Tom Cruise is one of the largest monetary donors to the “Church” of Scientology.

By paying to see the movie Valkyrie, you are giving money to Tom Cruise who then uses that same money to fund Scientology.
In order to cut off monetary support to this evil cult, it must first start with cutting off the money supply of the largest contributors.
That begins with Tom Cruise. Then make it a point to boycott all Scientologists and their work. This includes buying their DVDs, paying to see their movies, and buying any products related to them.

This is one of the MEANEST EGOMANIACS you can inagine, folks.

Well, I’m not Mr. Blondie, but I love Tom Cruise. I know many people that do. In fact, MOST everyone I know does. Look at the response of the crowds wherever he goes. They all seem to love him too. Everyone that knows him, including some of the people that you all rave about, know Tom and have worked with Tom and they all only have great things to say about him as well. How do you explain that?

2 sydney @ 12/19/2008 @ 12/19/2008 at 11:17 am

dey had great things to say about him b4 he became a maniac and when was the last time you heard them talk about him since then, they don’t even wanna have anything to do with him in public, the stiff body language from pple like STEVEN SPIELBERG says it all

amway at 1:32 am @ 12/19/2008 at 11:27 am

sweetheart TAMMY’s GG nom is a joke and no one ever considered or talked about nominating PALE & TRAGIC for a TONY’s, it’s an illusion TOMKAT fans started which is quiet irritating if anything critics said she shudn’t “PREPARE HER TONY’S SPEECH” after seeing her performance which was aslo tagged “mediocre” dat is not TONY AWARD worthy to me

Tom is nuts and a bit creepy…but he’s aged really well!

peace on earth @ 12/19/2008 at 3:08 pm

God bless him
God bless his family
God bless America
God bless the fans
God bless JJ
Most of all God bless our troops overseas….

Tom is delicious and the popcorn can are among my fave snacks.

Tom you are looking great! I can’t wait to watch the movie too! :)

Man I love to see this interview but I cant stay up late for work.
God bless youtube and the internet.

estrogen monster @ 12/19/2008 at 8:55 pm

David Miscaviage likes his men tanned and lean. Young also. Tommy had to have some face work done or he’d lose favour as Miscaviage’s no. 1 pet.

estrogen monster @ 12/19/2008 at 8:59 pm


So. You’re one of the Scientologists who troll the blogs and write stuff that will apparently lift Tom Cruise’s profile.

Are you also one of the Valkyrie ticket holding scifags to make it appear the movie is more popular than it is?

But then again, with only 50,000 scifags world wide they’re going to have to bump the figures somehow. Wasn’t it Disney that did that with a movie not long ago?

[☆I n F a m o u s☆] @ 12/18/2008 at 10:49 pm
…`tom looks as young as connor.

Too bad he was so busy pushing his shítty movie, he couldn’t be bothered going to his own son’s movie debut, and missed his wife’s birthday.

Mr. Blonde @ 12/22/2008 at 5:08 pm

Do you judge ALL mothers and father who are too busy working to catch a birthday or a play or a game or whatever or just TomKat, #69?

Another cuckoo alert!!!!! #30. Did you write all of the negative comments?????

I think Tom is old .
