Morton's Cruise Book Dropped By Publishers

Bosses at a U.K. publishing company have bowed to pressure from TOM CRUISE and dropped ANDREW MORTON's controversial biography of the Hollywood actor.
Morton's expose of the star was published in the U.S. in January (08) but British-based publishers MACmillan have now decided to scrap plans to launch the book in the U.K. because Cruise forced them to remove so much of the content.
In Tom Cruise: An Unauthorised Biography, Morton covered a series of controversial topics including the actor's high profile relationship with the Church of Scientology. But Cruise made so many legal threats, MACmillian has now decided it is not worth releasing the biography.
A spokesman for the company says, "We will not now be publishing the book. Although it was publishing in America, Cruise had so many complaints that by the time our lawyers had been through it, there was nothing left but red ink.
"We have explored every possible option but have concluded that once the potentially defamatory sections are taken out, there is not enough left to make a good enough read."

Once I was an avid fan of Tom's. After everything that has transpired with him he has turned into a great disappoint. Nicole Kidman is much better off. I feel sorry for Katie Holmes, Tom will not allow her to be her own person.After the interview he did on the Today show, that did it for me. I love Matt, and just could not believe all of what Tom Cruise was saying. He is a real hot head, and arrogant. Brook Shields should have never forgiven him either. You do not just come out and say those things about people on live television. Shame on you, Tom.Since then I have gotten rid of all of my Tom Cruise movies, and I will never see or go to another one of his movies again. Hollywood would be better off to boycott every movie of his past and present. Tom should never be hired again. I cannot believe I used to really adore him. How credulous and foolish I have been about Tom Cruise.
