Many morning news outfits are leading with a childish prank played on Tom Cruise where a man interviewing Cruise squirts him in the face with a fake, water-filled microphone.

Considering what could have happened in this situation... Cruise came correct, like a man. He didn't go out like a bitch or a coward, he looked the guy in the eye and said (in a nutshell) what's your [phuckin] problem. I dont have a wheelbarrow full of sympathy for movie stars but these people have to deal with obnoxious press and paparazzi 24/7.. I'm impresed with how Cruise conducted himself here.

That guy would have caught an ass beatin from Russell crowe

Would have been better if Cruise had laughed it off... but it would have been a hell of a lot funnier if it was Russell Crowe!

That makes no sense.

I think Tom Cruise is a total freak but I thought he handled that much better then most people would have.

I bet Cruise set the whole thing up. The guy just stands there after he squirts Cruise in the face, because he's told "Don't run away"? Come on.

Pub stunt.

Yeah, I don't know that I would have just stood there like he did. He basically asked the guy over and over, "why did you do that?" but he wasn't a whiner about it. He was asking it like "What the hell is the matter with you? Why would you do that? WHat are you, a freakin' teenager?"

I thought he handled it pretty well.

It constantly amazes me how much crap famous people have to put up with.

Tom Brady does a weekly radio interview here in Boston during the regular season. One time the interviewers press him hard for some examples of nutty things he had had to put up with due to his fame. The stuff was just draw-dropping. You would think people would be satisfied with a "Great job Tom" or whatever. It's just constant and inescapable.

Well, it's Tom Cruise and the title was "Cruise takes it in the face!"

I figured his secret was finally out and somebody had Polaroids of his "pearl necklace".

The ONLY thing I defend celebrities over, is all the BS they have to deal with when it comes with the paparazzi. Stalkers with a cameras, that all they are...

Spielberg: Media 'punished' Cruise

Director: 'The press didn't like the way Tom bared his soul'

Monday, June 20, 2005; Posted: 11:25 a.m. EDT (15:25 GMT)


LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Director Steven Spielberg says the media "punished" Tom Cruise for the actor's televised, soul-baring declaration of love for Katie Holmes.

But in an interview with Newsweek magazine released on Sunday the director downplayed speculation that the giddy public displays of affection by Cruise, 42, could damage Paramount Picture's publicity for his upcoming summer release "War of the Worlds."

The $135 million-spectacle, based on the science-fiction novel by H.G. Wells, opens June 29.

"I was a little upset. I was a little upset," Spielberg told the magazine, referring to the attention generated by Cruise's recent appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

"Not at Tom, but at the press for making such a big deal out of a kind of small thing. Tom lost his cool because he was deliriously happy, and now he was being punished for his public display of happiness," Spielberg said.

Last month, during an appearance on Oprah to promote "War of the Worlds," Cruise jumped on the talk show host's couch, then ran backstage to get Holmes, shouting, "I love this woman!"

A recent poll in People magazine found most respondents thought the romance was a publicity stunt.

Last week, Cruise proposed to the 26-year-old "Batman Begins" star atop the Eiffel Tower and immediately made their engagement public.

Holmes stars in "Batman Begins," which opened at the top of the North American box office this weekend.

Spielberg said he thought that actor was being genuine during his much-discussed TV appearance.

"What Tom did on 'Oprah' was exactly what Tom did with me when he first told me about Katie Holmes. But the press didn't like the way Tom bared his soul," he said.

Paramount is part of Viacom Inc. and Warner Bros. is a division of Time Warner Inc., as is CNN

More about Tommy boy.

The movie star discusses his new film, his new relationship and Scientology with the "Today" show's Matt Lauer.

In tense moment, Cruise calls Lauer ‘glib’
'War of the Worlds' star assaults psychiatry, says he's ‘really happy’

MSNBC News Services
Updated: 12:42 p.m. ET June 24, 2005
NEW YORK - Tom Cruise was all smiles talking about his movie and his fiancee on NBC’s “Today” show, but the smile disappeared when Matt Lauer mentioned Cruise’s earlier criticism of Brooke Shields for taking anti-depressants.

Cruise got very serious and kept saying “Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt” every time Lauer said he knew people who were helped by anti-depressants.

Shields took them for her post-partum depression. As a Scientologist, Cruise doesn’t believe in those kinds of drugs or therapy of any kind.

At one point Cruise told Lauer, “You’re glib” and said Lauer didn’t know what he was talking about. The star launched into a detailed discussion of the use of the prescription drug Ritalin.

“It's very impressive to listen to you,” Lauer replied, “because clearly, you've done the homework. And you know the subject.”

“And you should,” Cruise retorted. He also told Lauer, “You don’t know the history of psychiatry. I do.”

The NBC anchor told Cruise he had known people who had been helped by psychiatric drugs. Cruise then accused Lauer of advocating the use of Ritalin.

Lauer asked Cruise how he could get more people to understand Scientology, the controversial religion practiced by Cruise and other celebrities like John Travolta.

“You just communicate about it," Cruise said. “If I want to know something, I go and find out. Because I don't talk about things that I don't understand.”

‘A great time in my life’

The actor was far more upbeat when it came to discussing his recent marriage proposal to “Batman Begins” actress Katie Holmes. He said he couldn't care less about some cynics' suggestions that his over displays of affection are just for show.

“You know what? There’s always cynics. There always has been. There always will be,” said Cruise, who hasn’t been shy about professing his love for Holmes. “I have never worried ... about what other people think and what other people say.”

Cruise and Holmes went public with their romance in April, smooching and posing for photographers in Rome. They recently became engaged.

Many have doubted the romance — the words “publicity stunt” have rained down on the couple like an alien invasion as Cruise has been busy promoting his new film, “War of the Worlds,” directed by Steven Spielberg, which opens on June 29.

“I have to tell you. It’s just a great time in my life,” Cruise told NBC. “I’m really happy. And, you know, I’m engaged. I’m going to be married. I can’t restrain myself. It’s like you’ve got two little cords on your mouth and you can’t stop smiling.”

The 42-year-old actor, whose marriages to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman ended in divorce, declined to say what the 26-year-old Holmes has brought to his life that wasn’t there in the past.

“I don’t want to compare things,” Cruise said. “It’s that thing where you just — in life when it just happens. ... You meet someone. And it’s — I can’t even describe it.”
