Tom Cruise has just now broken his silence about his big 2012 divorce from Katie Holmes just in time for the premiere of his sci-fi movie Oblivion.
Tom Cruise’s eldest daughter Isabella Cruise is giving Kelly Osbourne a run for her money, Bella celebrates her weight loss on twitter with new green hair.
Suri Cruise is one lucky little girl! As she’s busy baking cookies with Katie Holmes at posh NYC bakery, little does she know about the $24,000 surprise that awaits her on Christmas morning- her very own Victorian playhouse!
Life without Tom Cruise can be tiring as well. Katie Holmes takes a break and catches some sleep on the subway.
Katie Holmes walked away a winner because she got her freedom and an ample amount of child support around $400,000 – a modest amount by Hollywood standards. Tom Cruise is reportedly worth $250 million. Read the rest of this entry »

Suri Cruise is having the time of her life at the Happiest Place on Earth, all made special by her superstar dad Tom Cruise.
Tom Cruise has finally been reunited with his daughter Suri, after more than two weeks since the TomKat split made headlines.
Tom Cruise may still be feeling the effects of his crazy phase but it’s good to see that he’s still unfazed by the effects of his image going south and just figuratively let his hair down and be a normal dude for once.
He definitely showed that side of him to the public when he went out with his adorable daughter Suri for a fun afternoon at Disneyland in California. Read the rest of this entry »
While the world of pool both in Europe and across the Pond has had its fair share of heroes like Minnesota Fats, Raymond Ceulemans and Steve “Romford Slim” Davis , the accessibility and enjoyment of the game, far extends from professional tournaments.
Wander into any bar, any pub and you will likely see a pool table sitting in the corner, laughs being shared and bets being wagered. But away from the heady light of pool stardom on the international stage, and the dingy pub setting with stained baize and poor lighting, there is a world of celebrity surrounding the game of pool, one which stretches far back in to the annals of the game’s history.
We all know the famous pool movies, The Hustler and the Colour of Money, which helped to bring the beautiful game into the public eye, largely thanks to the sadly departed Paul Newman. He is the tie between the two movies, the archetypal epitome of cool, but Newman’s love of the game went beyond on-screen set ups and special effects, he actually was a keen pool player.
Newman actually got lessons from Willie Mosconi (yes, the name given to the Mosconi Cup which pits the US against Europe) and current Hollywood giant Tom Cruise, who stared alongside Newman in the Colour of Money, is also a pretty adept player. Not many people may know this, but Mr Katie Holmes is ambidextrous, and while there were obvious continuity errors in the movie (not to mention a huge fashion faux-pas with his adopted hairstyle), Cruise is apparently a pretty dab hand at the sport.
You can scour Hollywood for pictures of famous stars shooting pool, from Brad Pitt, to Nicolas Cage, to Julia Roberts, to John Wayne and Keith Richards (which surely would have been a treat to experience). One of the most famed and revered of all celebrity pool players, was Jerry Orbach of Law and Order fame. There are many tales about his pool and billiards playing, taking money off players in challenges, including an encounter where he beat famed player Cornbread Red without knowing it.
Actor and director Woody Allen is also purportedly a massive fan and player of the game of billiards too. You can just picture him bustling around the table, while Bob Dylan’s sitting in the corner of the room, whistling a tune, as the songster is reportedly a fan of the game as well. The list really does just go on and on, with American Fear Factor presenter Joe Rogan being an avid participant of the game. That image just fits, it really does and it doesn’t even take sheep’s eyeballs to make it work. Just Rogan, a beer, a cigar and a pool table. The list goes on, and some even suspect that the late, great Vincent Van Gogh may have even been partial to a game, but there is no record of it. The rumours are abound because he painted The Night Café, capturing the game in its raw, unadulterated form, a pool table sitting in a dingy bar.
So popular is the game of Pool, that not even the White House can escape its addictive clutches, highlighted in a famous picture involving current incumbent Barack Obama. There is actually a Billiard Room in the White House, which was put there by James Monroe (who was the fifth President of the United States for those counting). So, even the vastness of Pennsylvania Avenue’s most famous address is not without it’s pool hall charm.
There is a certain sense of a President being just a regular Joe as he lines up the nine ball into the corner pocket, brow sweating, heart palpating, all budget problems falling by the wayside. Pool, the great political humbler.
Taking a step further back into history, John Adams, who was the President before Monroe, was so desperate to have a game of billiards that he would be seen knocking his balls around on the floor, just to get some action in. That is the power of pool and billiards, long steeped in history, from Presidents to Hollywood, the click of the ball, the rattling of the pockets is just too irresistible to pass up. Recreational or competitive the allure of game is just hard to deny. The sport in one fashion or another has been around since the 1600’s and long will it remain.

Paramount Pictures is trying to determine if Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) can still put butts in the seats with a new MI4 movie. Apparently the studio is rethinking the movies future after a luke warm reception by fans to the new Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz comedy Knight and Day which has failed to put up big numbers.
The studio which is set to release Mission on December 16th, 2001 just isn’t sure Cruise has the star power to bring in the type of money required to produce such a big movie.

Tom Cruise took a brilliant turn as Les Grossman in Tropic Thunder and then he stole the show with that character at this years MTV Movie Awards, so it should come as no surprise that Grossman is getting his own full length feature film.
The film, a partnership between Paramount and MTV will star Cruise alongside Tropic Thunder co-star Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld of Red Hour Films, with the screenplay being penned by Michael Bacall.
Stiller released a statement about the project:
“Les Grossman’s life story is an inspiring tale of the human class struggle to achieve greatness against all odds. He has assured me he plans to quote ‘F**king kill the sh*t out of this movie and make Citizen f**king Kane look like a piece of crap home movie by the time we are done.’ I am honored to be working with him.”
It’s a little too late to be looking for the golden egg, but Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s little girl Suri is still in the spirit of Easter.

It’s official. Not only will he produce the third sequel, Tom Cruise will also reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible 4. According to reports, the movie is set to be released on Memorial Day weekend in 2011.
Knight And Day is coming out on July 2…
…while Date Night is coming out on April 9.
Another spy movie spoof? While Tom Cruise is the king of me-against-the-world action flicks, the tandem of Steve Carell and Tina Fey will undoubtedly reign the comedy department. And since both spy movies are aiming for the funnies, my money’s on Date Night.

Forbes released another one of its reports, and it says that Tom Cruise and Will Ferrell are getting paid way too much for their work. Come to think of it, a lot of their movies have bombed…and yet they get paid way more than other actors. Is it luck or what?

Everyone has secrets – and celebrities more so. In the newest issue of GQ, you can take a peek into Nicole Kidman’s head as she shares tidbits about her life. Also, she says this is the last time she would say anything about her life with ex-husband Tom Cruise. I say she’s much better off now, anyway.

I am pretty sure that wife Katie and daughter Suri would disagree, but a co-star of Tom Cruise has said the words. Bronson Pinchot (who’s he?), of Perfect Strangers fame, says that Tom Cruise is “the biggest bore.” Okay, are we missing something here?
Katie Holmes is the latest Elle cover girl and she talks about fashion and more. Interestingly enough, she mentions that husband Tom Cruise is her fashion critic. So no need for the fashion police, huh?
