Britney linked a story
yesterday about Tom Cruise's latest wackiness. After the full body shake passed, I began to wonder something. Cruise and a lot of celebrities these days complain about their lives being under this constant microscope. There are tabloids and paparazzi everywhere, trying to capture the most minute details of their lives. But yet, there are times when I say--guys, you really brought this on yourselves.
I don't really care that Cruise wants to dine on the placenta of his new daughter. Hey--it's his life, he can do what he wants. Doesn't necessarily mean that I want to hear him talk about it. I can only imagine the hour by hour coverage we're going to get of the baby's first poopy diapers and how Cruise is going to have them framed (boy howdy, that will impress her prom date in about 16 years now then won't it?).
But then again, I'm slowly developing this theory that the pressure of all these movies is stating to take it's toll on Tom Cruise. Has anyone else noticed the pattern that he seem to totally flip out right before a new movie is about to open? Happened last year with War of the Worlds
and we're getting it again with Mission: Impossible 3.
Maybe they should just have Tom not make a big-budget movie for a while so that he can mellow out a bit.
He'd get the rest he needs, the paparazzi could find a new target to stalk and the American public could get sick of hearing about someone else's story. I think it's a win/win for everyone.
