I am *convinced* Stanley Kubrick broke up Tom & Nicole!

Just finished watching EWS. I am of the opinion that it was during the filming of this movie, that Tom and Nicole started feeling uncomfortable around each other and that the tension they pretended to have on the set was too much for them and it carried over into feel life. I mean C'mon...did you realize what these two were saying to each other during this film? And then to have to try and let it go and pretend everything was all honky dory after filming was done for the day? It's simply too much for a couple to endure.

So bottomline is, if it wasn't for Kubrick, Tom and Nicole would have never ended their marriage. Oh well, that's life I guess.

Well, a lot of Hollywood romances are strained when they decide to work together, and the shoot doesn't go as planned.

Would you be able to stand constantly being around your wife for at least twelve hours a day for nine months? Even if she is Nicole Kidman.

Are you insinuating that Kevin Costner broke them up?

I thought it was because their marriage was just a sham set up by the Church of Scientology to disguise the fact that they are both secretly gay?

(That is a rumor that has been circulating for years, in case you didn't know).

Nicole is a Catholic. All these rumors about Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Hayden Christensen, Colin Farell etc. being gay surface out of a mix of jealousy and gossip. I assure you, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and Colin Farrell are NOT gay.

Were they really together that much? Anyone have an idea what Nicole was doing during those three years? I mean, she's only in about a third of the picture.

I still think that Tom Cruise is GAY.

I don't think that Hanks is Gay.

Colin Farrell is definitely not gay. That dude is a freakin' man-whore.

Obviously it's true! Who would doubt you considering your demonstrated brilliance in understanding and appreciating Kubrick's films?

The matter of Tom enjoying the company of other men has nothing to do with this right?

You'd have a point except for the fact that he's gay too. Didn't you see Bad Lieutenant?

Tom and Nicole gay? I wouldn't know about that but it's possible that Kubrick's movie had something to do with it the end result is they wanted to seperate and be with other people both men and women.

One last gift from a great filmmaker. Thank you Stanley!!!

By the way, I met Kevin Pollak once and the subject of Tom came up and he volunteered the info that there was no way Cruise was gay (apparantly, he's a real skirt chaser).

Not to go too gossip crazy, but I've NEVER heard a RUMOR that Hanks or Farrell were gay. Christansen I never a rumor about anything this guy has done. So don't lump the obvious straight guys in with the quite notable queer eye Cruise. But Rosie O'Donnell loves her little Tommy. Beards unite.

If you think "Eyes Wide Shut" broke up the Cruise family, why not go ahead and also blame "Moulin Rouge?" Or, even "Vanilla Sky?" Why stop there? Their future marriage was destined for failure when they both starred together in "Days of Thunder." And it sealed when they both made "Far And Away."

To his defense, he isn't really asserting anything about the film itself.
