Katie Holmes was a surprise guest last night at the Los Angeles premiere for ‘Mission: Impossible III’, just 16 days after giving birth to her daughter Suri. Pulling up to Grauman’s Chinese Theater in a black Bugatti Veyron (the world’s fastest street legal car) fiance Tom Cruise stepped from behind the wheel, then opened the door for Katie in the passenger seat. People.com says:
“As the festivities continued, someone in the crowd handed Cruise a homemade gift for Suri: four, three-inch pink knitted toy blocks, each with the letters ‘S’, ‘U’, ‘R’, ‘I’ knitted in white on the blocks. Clearly touched by the gesture, Cruise handed the blocks to Holmes and then tightly hugged the fan. ‘Thank you so much,’ he said. ‘This is really appreciated. I love homemade gifts. Have a wonderful summer.’ Added Holmes: ‘Thank you. They’re beautiful. That’s so sweet. I know just where to put them.’ “
Don’t be fooled by the overcompensating enthusiasm, Tom Cruise is still a lunatic. Seriously, if you could be trapped in a one room spaceship with Tom Cruise or Predator, who would you choose. I think the choice is clear. Keep in mind, Predator may rip your spine out and make a necklace out of it, but at least he won’t lecture you about psychology.
Speaking of Tom, more than a few groups, including this one, would like to persuade you to not reward Cruise and his insanity. Go see MI3 if you like, but buy tickets for something else.
