Tom Cruise was left red-faced when an angry mother launched a blistering verbal attack on him, after her young son became frightened by the media attention at a children's soccer match.
Cruise's attempts to calm the mother down went in vain after she became furious when the paparazzi descended onto La Cienega Park, California while the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE star and his fiance Katie Holmes watched his 13-year-old daughter ISABELLA play soccer.
An onlooker says, "Tom was going to the men's room when a little boy got spooked by the cameras and burst into tears.
"Suddenly a woman marched up and started laying into him. He was trying to calm her and boy down but she was really fired up."
