I love Tom Cruise. I just watched Magnolia again on IFC and just couldn't get enough of watching Tom's eyes as the misogynist, hurting son. He's a movie star among movie stars. I haven't watched M:i:III yet, but that is only because I don't have the money or the time for movies nowadays. When the DVD comes out, I'll be sure to watch it and focus on it as well as I can with two screaming kids running about my living room.
Tom's religion is not my religion. Big deal. His views are not my views but his profession is my passion. Everyone is sticking up for Brooke Shields lately after Mr. Cruise's attack on her views on post-partum depression and its treatments. That said, I imagine even Brooke finds herself channel surfing and stopping at Jerry Maguire and thinking, "I don't know about Tom Cruise, but Jerry Maguire sure could complete me." And who would fault her there? Dude looks great.
