Yesterday I posted that Tom Cruise got blasted
in the face with a stream of water from a trick mic [that played a double-role
as a squirt gun]. In the article, that you can read HERE,
I pointed out that now may not be the time to play tricks on Tom, considering
the fact he has been under tons of media fire about his latest relationship
with Katie Holmes and his upcoming film War of the Worlds.
After posting this article I received tons of emails from people who are
responding in defense of Tom Cruise; as if I attacked the guy. Before I
begin the latest follow-up to this trick - on - Cruise - gone - wrong, I
want to point out that our last article was in no way to attack Mr Cruise
or make fun of him. Instead, I can feel where the guy was coming from. And,
instead of throwing a punch [or a phone], Tom Cruise called the reporter
and his crew 'jerks' repeatedly and left the scene to enjoy the rest of
the War of the
Worlds premiere. The reporter, and his crew, who squirted
Tom Cruise were immediately arrested and released on bail. So what now?
Cruise Says No Lawsuit
Obviously, the best way to handle this prank with
respect is to just let it go. It seems that Tom Cruise wants to get this
minor event behind him and has opted not to press any charges for the intended
joke. The news station responsible for the crew have already posted an apology
that stated the joke played on Cruise had no ill intent and was for humor
purposes only. I guess they hoped Cruise to be part of the joke rather than
the butt of it.
On a final note, Tom Cruise is one of my favorite
actors no matter how many couches he jumps on. I am currently working to
finish our newest section titled 'Fan Pages' which will feature pages for
our favorite actors and actresses; Tom Cruise was the third name inserted
into this database. I have nothing but respect for Tom and his actions towards
the joke. The reporter was a jerk, but not jerk enough to result in any
Thanks to the readers who wrote in over the whole Tom - got - squirted incident.
