His acting is getting so stale. Wish he would retire and just disappear.

@Peapo: Tom Cruise’s career is as hot as ever, he is not going anywhere. He may have cooled in the states but his overseas box office is double as it was in his heyday in with it

# 3

inside you are burning Tom, while from the outside you still keep your fake smile. You know it very well, Tom, how much you have betrayed, abused and hurt people close to you. You know that your arrogant and support of your criminal buddy David Miscavige has destroyed lives and continues to do so inside that cult. You are accessory to all those crimes, Tom. Karma!!! Just Remember this.

# 4

He looks so much like his mother.

# 5

My teenage children just saw ‘Jack Reacher’ and loved it :)

# 6

wow! good thing!

Tom Cruise’s work ethic is consistent and admirable. He has one of the largest and strongest fan base (internationally) because he takes time to show his appreciation for them (signing autographs and taking pictures) and does it with so much sincerity. It’s nice that he continues to get positive recognition for his work.

@Krix: He is a movie making bad-****, but one bad thing seems to be he doesn’t have as much time to spend with family when he puts so much energy into his work. Wish he had found a better balance between work and home. May have saved him a marriage or two.

What is with all the OBVIOUS fake pro-Tom comments? Does his PR team hire people to troll sites to write this stuff??? Come on.

he sould retire from acting his movies getting worse and worse

He looks old.

you can choose not to see his movie, it’s your right. but wether he retire, you has no right to decide, loser.

He’s looking older and older. After all, he is 50.

Is that a potential wife #4?

Nope. Rosamund is married and just had a baby.

@RupertSanders: Really? His career is as hot as ever? What planet are you living on?

The Bette Midler/Billy Crystal movie is doing better than the idiotic “Jack Reacher.”

Nice try, pr guy for Tom Cruise. Or perhaps you’re a Scientologist.

Lots of Scientologists here making fake pro-Cruise remarks.

Get lost!

Every movie he makes he (5’4″) plays the big tough guy, it gets really old. I’m sure there is a lot more to the story about his last marriage breakup that we do not know, or should know. He broke up with Nicole Kidman after making that terrible movie Vanilla Sky with Penelope Cruz, he fell for her, tried to make it look like something Nicole did wrong. By the way Penelope and Nicole are good friends now, Nic probably thanking Penelope because she now has a real man, adorable Keith Urban.

kidman is Penny’s friend? which kind of friend? just in mouth? except for the promotion of the film required, Penny did not have any contact with MS kidman.
If I remembered correctly, Penny just had dinner with Tom, including her husband, Cameron Diaz in Sep of last year. These called “friends”, you know?

Is he dating Rosamund? She’s definitely his type: Bony, and way taller than him.

I’m a Baptist and I like Tom Cruise. Believe it or not in America people have religious freedom..That’s why millions of foreigners flock here every single day. His films have always done well overseas, because no film can solely depend on the USA box office. How did Twilight make hundreds of millions = overseas box office intake. Tom Cruise is a huge star overseas so his career is not over.

Actually Penelope and Nicole became friends on the set of Nine. Maybe not close friends, but they were friendly and according to some blogs had dinner together.

Actually we have laws in the US about slave labor yet the cult uses their members as unpaid workers. Did you know they remodeled or added amenities to Tom’s airline hanger, plane, motorcycle, SUV, and home and were not paid for their work? They were told by David Miscavage, cult leader, to do it. They had no choice. Do you know that members are often physically punished? Emotionally browbeaten? Families are separated if one of them leaves the cult? Is that legal? No. Tom has to know all of this since according to Andrew Morton who did extensive research for the bio he wrote – Tom was the #2 person in the LA faction. It is hard to respect a person like Tom who was part of shoving the mother of his two older kids out of their lives, who uses unpaid labor, who knows that his cult household staff, bodyguards etc. all report every little thing back to Miscavage, and who enthusiastically supports all of this!

Domestic boxoffice doesn’t matter according to the cult members posting on here for TC. Jack R was done after the holidays helped it along a little. Yeah, the Bette Midler movie is doing better than JR. Domestic is what counts. If the US isn’t interested, it’s a flop.
