You almost want to yell in his face: "OK, she completes you. Now shut up!"

Hey, your article came up on Google's News page, you just added MORE to the on going publicity.

If you really don't care, why introduce it to a golf site?

Seriously. This a golf site for $@!#$%!@ sakes. If you don't like the attention given to Mr. Cruise why did you just pay MORE attention to him. Please, some logic. I thought this was a travel golf site. Damn this place went to crap when EVERYONE started chiming in on random stuff in the blogs. We come here for GOLF not YOU.

Good article. I agree, Tom Cruise is having some serious problems if he can't see the joke that is Scientology. It's not a religion, just a corporation.

I never understand the whole Tom Cruise thing anyway. And who believes this ridiculous romance Katie Holmes? He'd probably rather be with Steve Spielberg.

Cruise has always creeped me out and now more than ever. I cannot bear to go to a movie he is in.

I know too many people who have been members of the Scientology cult and who had to be deprogrammed to have close to normal lives.

My sister wasn't so lucky. She was one of the unmentioned many. After Scientology used her and her money up and she had nothing left and was living on the edge from food deprivation, they kicked her out. This pushed her over the line into mental illness (20+ years ago) and she has insitutionalized ever since.

Scientology might be good for people who give lots of money and publicity to the cult -- but it's bad for them if they have nothing left to give.

Iccckkkkk.

Oh -- clearly people in the cult need something and aren't too well-wrapped to begin with, my sister notwithstanding. And Creepy Cruise.

I think everybody should just shut up about Tom and kate (as he reportedly likes to call her). I've grown quite sick of all the views on the relationship. I couldn't care worth a pig's ass what impact their relationship has on their respective films or on anything else. They are rich. The world is their oyster.
To all columnists/comedians/critics/journalists wake the hell up to the reality that Tom and Katie are now OLD news.
Isn't there anything more compelling to write about, joke about, criticise? Really.

So you are saying the bare faced messiah is the definitive truth about L.Ron Hubbard. I have read that book, and it pretty obvious from its tone and disposition, that its intent is
to do a hatchet job on the life of
Hubbard. This book is not anywhere close to being objective.
And now your opinion of Scientology is derived, not from having read anything to do with scientology or dianetics, but from a quote in a book that was intended to belittle and ridicule hubbard and all his work,
wow - how about that for objective journalism.

Believe it or not, I have read Dianetics. If I thought there was any part of it worth discussing, I would...

Comment from: Roman [Visitor]
Thinking of his interview by NBC's Matt Lauer, Tom Cruise brings public arrogance to a whole new level. Yes, we all want to hear what Tom thinks of psychiatric medicine. (I can just imagine the horrified look on Brooke Shields' face when he passsionately claimed "I CARE ABOUT HER...)

He certainly didn't do anything positive for himself, his Scientology cult, or his credibility as a resonably intelligent / rational person. As it stands now, I care about Cruise's "insight" into these issues about as much as I care about Patricia Heaton's feelings toward the late Terri Schiavo's husband.

And as for this "romance" with Cruise & Holmes? The reason it's so unbelievable is that it really DOES look like some arranged union - not by publicists, but by Scientologists.

I'm sure you've heard about Scarlett Johansen's bolting from her lead role in Mission Impossible 3, thanks to the surprise "welcome to Scientology" lunch Tom arranged for her. (Consider yourself lucky, Scarlett: you might have been in Katie's Stepford-esque shoes if you hadn't have gotten out of there!)

Cruise is certainly an enigma. He gives the same performance in every film - as if the character just transplants from one script to another. He files a lawsuit every time someone says something he deems less than perfect about him. (To sue because someone questioned he was homosexual? I guess we know what he thinks of gay people).

He irritates the crap out of me. I'd love to see War of the Worlds if he weren't in it. (I'd love to see Batman Begins if Holmes didn't annoy me so much now.) Why Cruise for these roles? Why not anyone else? ANYone?

I hope Hollywood gets as sick of Cruise as I am. There are more talented / less irritating actors out there who should play his roles.

By the way, I'm REALLY going to make a point of seeing more Nicole Kidman films. She obviously knows how to correct a mistake when she sees it.

I SOOOOO agree with Roman. Tom Cruise (a/k/a Tom Moyhofer) never did it for me anyway. Now, he even does less for me. The only good thing about the guy is that he apparently doesn't have a problem dating tall woimen -- being 6'0 tall myself, that's important. And I too love Nicole Kidman -- now more than ever. Boy did she make a good choice losing that guy!

This was the point that Tom Cruise didn’t make. Do you know how much prescription drugs are worth to Big Pharma? On a world wide basis about a trillion + dollars. How much do you suppose the pharmaceutical companies spend advertising drugs on TV, Radio, Magazines and News media? Do you think that they want to protect this income? Right now Ritalin is being dispensed in schools under the guise of treating over active children. Ritalin is a mild form of amphetamine and of course as time goes by it doesn’t “work”and the school psychologist prescribes amphetamines and the end product is the teenager becomes a drug addict and a life time client. Please don’t believe me but take the time to research, Google is a great tool for this. Regards Michael Hammond

scientologists scare me. tom cruise has really helped out his 'religion' by acting like a totally mentally handicapped person, possibly even psychotic, on all these tv shows. he's exposed himself to be a complete jackass and now we all got to see what that cult religion of his does to people

The whole Tomkat thing is weird. He wont say why he dumped Nicole but yet he shoves the whole Katie thing down our throats. He shows up everywhere making out and dipping this 26 year old. Tells us if we are "not on board" then we can "_uck off". Then says how much he cares about us all.
Does this ego maniac have a clue about real life. He lives in a bubble where everyone kisses his butt all day. Somebody please beam him up!

You are so right! When I heard Mr. Cruise talk about Brook Shields and "Where has her career gone", I thought what an arrogant ass! Katie Holmes recently said "Tom and I will always be on our honeymoon". Well guess what Katie, thats exactly what Nicole Kidman said to People magazine some 15 years ago. Ahhh to be young again.

I know that I am unknown to you, but I had to comment. I take medication for depression. Without it I would probably be dead by now. I think Tom way overstepped his his boundries. He is making comments on something he knows absolutely nothing about at all. And to attack people who need help for their depression is irresponsible and predjudiced. I also think he should stay out of Brooke Shields' business. Why should anyone live with depression when they can live without it? Because Tom says so? What an ass. I've never been a fan of his, but I will probably stay away from his movies altogether now. He's just another idiot trying to recruit people to join his cult. And like you, I don't give a rat's ass who he's dating. If Katie is stupid enough to be with him then by all means do so. No offence to anyone here. Just my opinion on things.

Tom Cruise trying to speak deeply analytical demonstrates the false equation, (older than and as equally fallacious as Einstein's notorious
e=mc2 drivel), wealth=intelligence.

Met him in London once and thought what a little tiny little man . Sort of man that insists on only making films with actors under 5ft 5 .

Over here we have a saying "short man syndrome " and he fits the bill perfectly . I reckon he should try some anti depressants to get over it ....his huge insecurities i mean .
(Monica and Sarah ....all the best

I agree with you, Rob. What he doesn't realize is that everytime he opens his mouth he gets smaller and smaller. All the best to you as well!

What the hell is wrong with you, you act like all because there celebs they cant fall in love, if there happy together and if they want to get married its up to them so mind your own business because this has nothing to do with you. Oh and all you who go around saying Tom Cruise is gay or something stupid like that its because of people like you who make dumb rumors like that go around because your too bored with your own damn life you got to mess with other peoples. Im a huge Fan of both Tom and Katie and im glad there getting married.

Everybody just get a grip. Has anyone noticed that the publicity stunt is over? I have not once seen or heard of Tom and Katie since early June when Katie proclaimed that she wants to hold off on her wedding and enjoy her engagement for a while. She is smarter than we think. I'm sure she knows: 43 year old male having the hots for virgin 26 year old and eagerly wants to marry after whirlwind 2 month romance means Tom is in midlife crisis and eager to get into her pants. If Katie was in her 30's, do you think he would have pulled the stunt he did in April? Men my age-44- see 20 something year olds as youth enhancers and libido boosters. Now that pretty young thing Katie is putting marriage on hold, Tom has lost his urge. Putting off marriage from a pretty young thing like Katie for a while is a testosterone killer. Thanks Katie for using good mental judgement on horny mid life crisis mentality. Maybe Scientology promotes mild pedophilic mentality. If I had sex with Katie? I would feel quite guilty because she looks so much like a High School student.

I dated a guy into Scientology and I've come to realize that it preys on people that are souless. It is a scam...if it was so great they wouldn't charge so much...and hello to planet earth...they believe we have remnants of aliens in our bodies..that is a fact..I heard it out of their own mouths...as for people like soso and asr that responded, I have one thing to say...please for the love of humanity...GET A CLUE...YOU ARE MAKING YOURSELF SOUND PRETTY IGNORANT...unless you're a pre-teen/teenager...that explains it...you just haven't matured yet

When I saw the interview with Matt & Tom I was so amazed! What an egotistical idiot Tom Cruise is! What does he base his knowledge on mental illness on? God forbid him or Katie or anyone in his family has a mental illness. Scientology is a cult..bottom line. Research it for yourself. The founder was a quack and the only way it works for you is if you have money. So....that's why it works for arrogant Tom. And poor Katie...man she seems young and brainwashed! Sad....

I think tom cruise and katie holmes make
a cute couple, but they need to give it
a rest. i'm not hating, but come on,
it's like ok yall are in love, we get the
picture! i swear everytime i see them,
they're either making out, or gazing
into each other's eyes. it gets old
i mean i've been in love, very in love,
but i didn't feel the need to make out
that much! tom also seems more in love
than katie is. she's usually calm and
collected when she talks about him, and
he seems just head over heels. she mighth
be using him for publicity, and if she was
i wouldn't be surprised. also, he's filthy
rich, and if they ever break up or anything,
he's obligated to give her millions! i don't
know.....but maybe they're in love.

They're pampered and they think they're
perfect. They get soooo much attention
that I think they may get sick of hearing
about themselves! "OH, I'm on ET again
tonight"... "look how great I am" ... "I
gave the wedding of a life time"... yada,
yada, yada... Most of Hollywood is like
this. They say they hate the press, but
I personally don't think a lot of them,
that have been given a lot of attention
for years, such as Tom Cruise, would know
what to do without the attention. They
don't hate it! They try to keep things
secret (like Suri) or a mystery because
they think their so great. They need to
realize they put on the their pant, eat
and fart like all the rest of us... truely.
