Tom Cruise


I've always though Tom Cruise is an okay actor. I've never been a massive fan, or avoided a film because he was in it. I'd say I'm neutral on the chap.

I like Mission Impossible 1 & 3 and because I was once a small boy Top Gun made me want to emigrate and join the military but apart from that he is just someone who gets paid a lot of cash for making expressions in front of camera. Well done him.

I say this because on Saturday night I met a proper Tom Cruise fan. We were in a bar, and this girl managed to relate almost any conversation back to how wonderful Tom Cruise was. It was a little bit alarming, but then it was quite fun to see how she would bring Tom Cruise into a conversation about shoes, horses or cocktails.

After a bit of consideration I decided it was probably best not to ask for her number and just politely said goodbye to rejoin my friends. I'm all for people having interests but I don't think I want to be in a love triangle with Tom Cruise.

To be fair, it wouldn't be difficult to get Tom Cruise into a conversation about cocktails cos of that film wot he was in (Top Gun).

My money would be on you in a love triangle with Tom Cruise. He's got the cash, but where are his humorous anecdotes?

RB - It must be international talk about Tom Cruise day.

Gorilla - Good point, I've dated a few girls who couldn't tell a funny anecdote and it made the evenings a trial.
