He's lucky it was just water. God knows whatelse it could have been.
I'm no Tom fan .. but I give him credit.. he didn't go all nutso and go off
on the guy. Russell Crowe would probably be charged with murder if
this happened to him.

A NIGHT in jail?

You do realize he just squirted him in the face with some water right? He's just a fucking Hollywood actor, not the President or someting.

Technically, it is assault, yes?

This would have been MUCH funnier if the guy had the balls to do this to someone like Russel Crowe.

Maybe it's just me, but I thought Cruise handled himself very well in this incident.

If Cruise cried for 7 minutes it would have been hilarious!

Um, actually, that was an attempt at humor. I wasn't being serious.

Because, you know, if Tom Cruise was tasered with 50,000 volts... well, that actually might be kind of funny...

Prank Against Tom Cruise Leads to Arrests 1 hour, 3 minutes ago



LONDON - The London premiere of Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds" turned into a war of words after Tom Cruise was squirted in the face by a man posing as a reporter.

The 42-year-old actor was outside a movie theater in central London's Leicester Square doing press interviews Sunday when a man squirted Cruise with a water pistol disguised as a microphone, London's Metropolitan Police said.

Cruise appeared to laugh but then asked the prankster: "Why would you do that?"

As the man gave a barely audible excuse, Cruise said: "Do you like thinking less of people, is that it?" The prankster tried to walk away but Cruise reached across the metal barrier, held his arm and said: "Don't run away. That's incredibly rude. I'm here giving you an interview and you do that ... it's incredibly rude."

The actor grew increasingly irritated and told the man: "You're a jerk."

Police detained the man who squirted Cruise and also arrested three other men who filmed the incident. The four were working on a new comedy show for British TV station Channel 4 in which celebrities are the targets of practical jokes.

Police released the men on bail several hours later and ordered them to return to a central London police station Monday, when a fourth was ordered to be held for further questioning, the police spokesman said.

Katie Holmes, who became engaged to Cruise last week, was at the premiere but not by Cruise's side when the incident occurred.

In an interview with Newsweek magazine, on newsstands Monday, Spielberg denies that media attention on Cruise and Holmes forced a change in the publicity campaign for "War of the Worlds." The couple went public with their romance in April.

"People say, `Oh, you didn't put Tom on the poster because of what happened. No. The poster was designed in January ... and my decision with all my films has been to use iconography on the posters," Spielberg says. "Tom was fine with that. It's the first time Tom has not been on a poster in his career, by the way."

As for Cruise's exuberant appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" last month, Spielberg tells the magazine: "What Tom did on `Oprah' was exactly what Tom did with me when he first told me about Katie Holmes. But the press didn't like the way Tom bared his soul to Oprah."


This is a different day and age than when the Three Stooges squirted water into each others faces.

We now live in a time where any terrorist group would love to get the headlines 'Terrorist Group Sprays Acid Into The Face of Mega Movie Star Tom Cruise'.

Speaking as a Christian, I totally disagree with Tom Cruise's religous views (Scientology) and think they are fully lies and very dangerous. And he has so much fame and power, that he is in a good position to convert many unsuspecting souls to the lies of Satan. But that being said, I would never wish any hurt upon him.

Even though this was only harmless water (unless you are the Wicked Witch of the West ), it could have been much worse. Now because of these events, oraganizers are going to have to tighten up security even more.

So what these idiots did in the name of humor was stupid.

Chris
