Cruise Comforts Distraught Beckham

TOM CRUISE comforted DAVID BECKHAM after the devastated soccer superstar was dropped from the England team last month (AUG06). Beckham announced his resignation as England captain following the side's World Cup exit in July (06), and was then axed from the national squad by new coach STEVE MCCLAREN. And among the first people Beckham called was his friend Cruise, who in the past has flown to Spain to watch him play for Real Madrid. Beckham says, "When I got to America I phoned Tom. He's a great guy to be able to speak to because he is a very positive-minded person. "It is good to have people around you at that point. "He talked about everything I had done in the World Cup, about the goal I scored and the goals I set up. He said I was a great player, that I played for Real Madrid, I've got a healthy family and three boys and a wife who love me to bits. "He's a great example of someone who stays positive through everything. "And that's how I started to get over what had happened with the England news. I got over it that way, with friends around me."
