Cruise: 'Journalists Seem Unhappy To Me'

TOM CRUISE isn't letting the media circus surrounding his personal life affect the release of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III, insisting journalists who generate tabloid headlines are unhappy with their own lives. The star has been at the centre of a media frenzy since he started dating fiancee KATIE HOLMES last year (APR05), which reached a fevered pitch with the birth of their baby SURI last week (18APR06). He explains, "When I look at the people who write or say these things, I realise it's not a lot of people doing it. "It's just a few people, trying to take advantage of sensationalism." The actor claims a few interviewers have tried to bait him into combative statements or behaviour, but insists, "You just have to be who you are." He adds, "Because when I meet these people, they really seem unhappy to me. And that's too bad. Because I'm happy." The media glare has become so overwhelming recently that the star has been forced to have bodyguards accompany him to all of his press interviews. Cruise adds the attention, "seems to come in phases. This just seems a little more intense lately."

After news a few weeks back that Tom planned on eating the placenta a buddy sent me a news story of Tom's baby being born via email, so I put my own spin on the story and sent it back to him. Following is my version of what happened .... It almost seems like it could be 100 percent true.- - - - - - - - Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes welcome new baby visitor from another planetLOS ANGELES (AP) -- Word of the world's most idiotic silent birth has finally been heard. Space Cadet Captain of Scientology Tom Cruise and hostage Katie Holmes, the public morons dubbed “INSANE” by the media, "joyously welcomed the arrival" of a baby girl Tuesday, who will more than likely grow up with a completely distorted view of reality said Cruise spokesman Arnold Robinson.The girl, named Suri, came into the world at 7 pounds, 7 ounces and 20 inches long. Her name has its origins in Hebrew, meaning "commode ring," or in Persian, meaning "rambling doofus," Robinson said in a statement."Both mother and daughter are doing well, and Tom is busy frying up the placenta in a nice lemon-butter sauce with a side of Katie’s toenails simmered to perfection" the publicist said.Details about the birth weren't disclosed, but it had been planned to take place as a silent procedure under the tenants of the Church of Scientology and Cabinet Repair, to which Cruise belongs, and Holmes is a captive of. “She’s kind of like that Mia Farrow character in Rosemary’s Baby where she has no say in getting pregnant and then the child turns out to be the spawn of Satan” a high ranking church official added.Scientologists believe words spoken during times of pain are recorded by the "reactive mind" and can cause potential problems for both mother and child. At least that’s what they came up with after getting really drunk one night at the Scientology headquarters on Mars.Suri's birth, which happened in California, although the exact location was not disclosed for fear of someone finding the cloaked Klingon vessel, generated a huge noise among the world of Cruise-Holmes watchers who have nothing better to do with their lives."Tonight Show" host Jay Leno announced the birth to his studio audience."I just got a phone call that Tom Cruise had a baby girl about two minutes ago. No joke," he said. “They also told me that through some ritualistic ceremony pioneered by Tom himself; Katie was able to transfer the fetus into Tom and he was the one who actually gave birth."Suri is the 27-year-old actress' first child. Cruise, 43, has an adopted daughter and son - Isabella, 13, and Connor, 11 - with ex-wife Nicole Kidman who miraculously escaped from the Scientology compound when someone forgot to lock the gate one night.In a strange twist of fate, Suri was born on the same day actress Brooke Shields gave birth to her daughter, stupidly named Grier Hammond Henchy while on a crack-high, which made Tom cry like the little girl he's always dreamed of being. Shields and Cruise had a public spat last year after he criticized the actress for taking antidepressants following the birth of her first child. Tom was quoted as saying “Pikof al zijkif kliudsheg” which is Scientology secret code talk for “I’m a girly man”.Cruise, echoing the position of Scientology, said depression can be treated with exercise, vitamins, and heavy dose of death rays from a Spector 8 Class 2 Laser Pistol ... rather than drugs. Shields dismissed the actor's remarks by simply saying … He’s Tom Cruise … and the whole world understood.At the home of Cruise and Holmes on Tuesday, about a dozen reporters and photographers stood outside the gates and a steady stream of tourists and curious passers-by stopped to take a look. Tom Cruise was seen wearing the baby’s Placenta as a hat while he danced naked on the roof of the house in what the church claims is the Scientologist version of a dad passing out cigars to his buddies. Some visitors left baby gifts outside the gate, which was shrouded in black to keep anyone from peering inside and spoiling the birth with their negative evil Christian Mind Rays.A police motorcycle officer stopped in the late afternoon to watch the goings-on. The patrolman, who identified himself as Officer Chase, said he was making a routine check because there had been heightened Nut Ball activity around the area ever since Tom moved in. He also admitted it was Tom he was actually watching out for because not only is he a Scientologist; he also sells Amway part time.He asked if Holmes had given birth yet and, told she had, he pulled out his lunch consisting of a Pork Chop and monkey placenta and ate it on the spot.Meanwhile, a publicity blitz for the new Cruise movie which was to begin Wednesday, has been put on hold. The actor has canceled all press appearances, according to the National Enquirer.It was just about a year ago that Cruise's romance with Holmes became a worldwide sensation when he kidnapped her at gunpoint, brainwashed her, and then paid a low level member of the church to have relations with her. The actor hopped up and down on a couch during an interview with Oprah Winfrey as he professed his love of himself while looking into a mirror."I can't be cool. I can't be laid-back," Cruise declared at the time. "Something happened and I want to celebrate it." Of course he was referring to a bowel movement he had not 10 minutes earlier.The antics were widely mocked, but Cruise was unfazed and continued to display his affection for himself.The couple was first photographed together in in April 2005 when the mothership dropped them there. Two months later, Cruise announced he had proposed to Holmes atop the Eiffel Tower by refusing to pull her up from the railing he was dangling her from (by her feet) until she agreed to be his Dianetic Vessel."Today is a magnificent day for me, I'm engaged to a magnificent woman, I want to see how many times I can say Magnificent. that's 3 times if you're counting. Sure Katie's not the man I’ve always had my eye on, but this will make my White House approval ratings shoot through the roof" he said. When told he wasn’t the President, Cruise stared blankly and replied … “But I have the mental power to become the President at any given moment if I so choose to be. He then raised his arms and tried to demonstrate his power by moving a glazed donut with nothing but his mind.” But all that happened was that he accidentally pee’d his pants.No wedding date has been disclosed as of yet for these two, because the hypno-trance the church put Katie into has not let her stop clucking like a chicken.Holmes was previously engaged to actor Chris Klein but Tom Cruise had him killed. Cruise, previously married to Mimi Rogers and Kidman, also had a high-profile romance with Penelope Cruz but all three of them had taken an aspirin at least once in their lives so BakTor MezPlik of the Nebulan Scientology Party ordered immediate separations by standing in front of the Galactic Senate outlining the drug abuse policy of the church.The birth further whetted the appetite for 's next high-profile pregnancy: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, rumored to be in a southwest African country trying to outfreak Tom and Katie with an even stranger birthing plan. Brad said if it comes to it he’ll even eat Angelina's foot if it’ll put them ahead of Cadet Cruise and his hostage.

Grow up, Tom. In reality you are a grown man preying on a young girl. Movie comes before marrying the child you knocked up? Oh, yea, you are a real man and very moral also. You movie stars have lived in an unreal world for a long time now and I am glad I have lived long enough to see the world get sick of all of you and your political views. Like you even think people care about what you idiots think. I like to know when any of you served in a public office or in the military.

What the ??? We/they must be getting to little Tommy - why else would he even bring up this subject?gardengirl - you are making one big assumption in your statement: 'intelligent'.BTW, maybe Tommy knows if this is true. The sequel to 'Brokeback Mountain' is to be called 'Return to Saddlesore Canyon'?

I don't feel sorry for anyone who joins the Scientology cult. It's their mind, their body, their money. If anything, I laugh at them. Who was it who said "there's a sucker born every minute?" I prefer that those fools are hanging out at The Scientology Center, Sea Org, or on some ship, rather than walking the streets!And just because the IRS finally caved in to them and gave them their tax-exempt status, it doesn't mean the government is endorsing them as a "religion." It only endorses them as a "charitable organization." Lots of charitable organizations are given tax-exempt status and they're not religions.

no fan 1-You hit it right on the head. These prima donnas in Hollywood are so full of themselves it makes the public sick. I've been telling my family for years Cruise is a fruitcake. It just took awhile for him to ripen and people to see. BTW Tom, I am not unhappy, just call them like I see them FRUITCAKE. Also dear God please bless their baby, you who's raising them. Anyone want to bet this relationship won't last 3 years?
