This is my unofficial collection of News Clips related to Tom Cruise from all aspects. Ranging from his movies, short bios, pictures and his devotion to Scientology, life and making this world a better place.
TOM CRUISE has an ambitious plan to shut down the centre of Tokyo, Japan for a week - for a movie stunt. The actor hinted
the movie sequence would be shot for a fourth Mission:
Impossible film - by winking at director JJ ABRAMS. He said, "People
might not be very happy with the traffic but if they will please be
patient and let us have it (downtown Tokyo) for one week, we will have
a sequence that will be forever remembered." Cruise and Abrams did the
same thing for Mission: Impossible III in Shanghai, China after
government officials agreed to shut the city down at night for filming
After a whirlwind Wednesday in which he took Manhattan by storm to open his Mission: Impossible III, Tom Cruise brought something extra special to the Los Angeles premiere on Thursday: Katie Holmes. >>> Full Article
"It was everything that we wanted it to be. … It was spiritual. It was
powerful. It was indescribable. What words can you use? It's still
something that I'm processing and keep reliving," Cruise told "20/20's"
In a recent TV interview Tom Cruise said that the best way to find out
about the Scientology Religion is by reading a book and finding out for
yourself. I think this is so true. I just finished reading several of
the basic books and have to say it really is the only way to really
find out what Scientology realy is.
Actress ANNE ARCHER commented on the plans of TOM CRUISE and KATIE HOLMES'
for a silent birth later this month. Archer, a
Scientologist for 30 years, voices her view that a silent labor is designed to be a peaceful
experience. She says, "We just want to keep the environment as calm,
quiet and loving as possible. "Any culture in the world would
understand that and any woman who's given birth would understand that."
The heavily pregnant Katie Holmes plans to adhere
to the advice of having a quiet or silent birth. In this regard fellow Scientologist John Travolta says, "There
are unwanted emotions and pain that goes along with any birth." Preston said the Scientology-friendly labor doesn't forbid the mum-to-be
from yelling out in pain: "Screaming is fine... It's the words. If you
can avoid saying certain phrases and words... Just try to keep it as
quiet as possible. "Of course you're going to groan and yell. It hurts.
Just keep it to a minimum."
