Cruise's Secret Yahoo! Meeting
TOM CRUISE isn't wasting any time in turning his business fortunes around after parting ways with Paramount Studios - he's making waves at Internet media giant Yahoo! The movie star secretly met with Yahoo! bosses in Santa Monica, California yesterday (24AUG06) - and took wife-to-be KATIE HOLMES along with him. Dressed smart but casual in jeans, a shirt and a blazer, Cruise looked happy as he left his three-hour meeting at Yahoo! headquarters hand in hand with Holmes, who was dressed for winter in a coat and boats on a sweltering 100-degree California summer day. The actor refused to discuss what the meeting was about or what plans he has with Yahoo! executives. The meeting followed a six-hour briefing Cruise hosted with selected studio bosses at trendy restaurant Orso in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (23AUG06). Cruise was unceremoniously dumped by Paramount boss SUMNER REDSTONE earlier this week (beg21AUG06). Redstone ended the studio's 14-year relationship with Cruise's production company by telling newspaper The Wall Street Journal he did not approve of the actor's much-publicised antics in the last 12 months. These included a sofa-jumping incident on the OPRAH show and a stern attack of psychiatry on US breakfast show TODAY.
