Farrell Mocks Cruise

COLIN FARRELL mocked his MINORITY REPORT co-star TOM CRUISE on US TV shows TODAY and LIVE WITH REGIS AND KELLY yesterday (25JUL06). The Irish actor is currently promoting his latest movie MIAMI VICE and took the opportunity to remind Today host MATT LAUER of his headline-hitting interview with Cruise in June 2005. When Cruise appeared on the Today show last year to promote his WAR OF THE WORLDS movie, Lauer quizzed him over his Scientology religion and controversial stance on psychiatry and prescription medication. During the fiery debate, Cruise blasted Lauer, saying, "You don't know the history of psychiatry. I do... You're glib." On the show yesterday, Farrell joked, "Stop being glib, Matt! You're glib, Matt, you're glib, you're glib." As Lauer struggled to keep a straight face, Farrell added, "Are you being glib again?" Hours later, when Farrell appeared on Live With Regis And Kelly, the morning show returned from a commercial break to find the actor glad-handing the audience, just as Cruise does during his lengthy walkabouts before his film premiere. Farrell told hosts REGIS PHILBIN and KELLY RIPA, "Doing my best Tom Cruise impersonation."

Sounds like Farrell is plain envious on Cruise, since Cruise is the bigger star. Unfortunately Farrell can NEVER rise to the stardom of Cruise, and has obviously problems with that.
