I find in my old age I'm changing my opinion of Tom Cruise. AIBU and need a slap with a wet kipper?

I've thought of him for years as basically being a short, odd, control freak (bar a short period in the late 80's or possible early 90's when I had a poster of him above my bed. Prime brat pack period). I'm wondering if he isn't actually a bit misunderstood. He seems to be very professional and pleasant in interviews etc and by all accounts hard working on film sets. Have I gone mad? Is it a strange peri-menopausal symptom? Have I forgotten some awful fact about him?

Yes - the wet kipper bit
HTH grin

Yes he's a scientologist! And don't forget the whole 'IM IN LOVE WITH KATIE HOLMES!!!' Cringefest...

He is a Scientologist? Makes my skin crawl I too think you need the kipper.

I can't get beyond the Scientology brainwashing. Too nuts for me.

Oh crap. Yes scientology. That'll be the thing I'm forgetting!

I actually like quite a lot of his films (Jerry Maguire, Minority Report, War of the Worlds to name a few) but he's clearly a complete oddball, to put it mildly. And he looks like he's had some bad plastic surgery on his face recently??

EarlessToothlessVagabond Fri 09-Jun-17 19:44:23

Oh and i don't find him attractive AT ALL. was just thinking about how he comes across.

EarlessToothlessVagabond Fri 09-Jun-17 19:45:05

He is actually far more interesting and effective when he acts as a 'villain'.

NoCapes Fri 09-Jun-17 19:46:36

He looks like my Dad
My Dad is a dick
Therefore Tom Cruise will always be a dick to me
Totally reasonable I know grin

noisewithdirton Fri 09-Jun-17 19:46:41

How about you take your mind off him by thinking about Hugh Jackman

I have a strong hatred for Tom Cruise but I'm not sure why. I get such a terrible feeling about him and have to switch over as soon as I see his face on the TV. He gives me the heebs.

Sorry need to add a '?'

ohfourfoxache Fri 09-Jun-17 19:47:50

I feel quite sorry for him. He's stuck so far into a piece of furniture that I don't think he's ever going to be able to be himself in public sad

EarlessToothlessVagabond Fri 09-Jun-17 19:48:11

Noise, I'd rather think about Tom Hardy (and very, very frequently do).

ohfourfoxache Fri 09-Jun-17 19:48:32

Snurk @Capes grin

JaneEyre70 Fri 09-Jun-17 19:49:24

He was very good in his early films but then he just got weird. Anything with him in it is guaranteed to be a turkey these days grin

EarlessToothlessVagabond Fri 09-Jun-17 19:49:57

Funnily enough Nocapes, my father reminded me of Clint Eastwood and I have an aversion to him. (Dad also a dick).

TizzyDongue Fri 09-Jun-17 19:51:10

You are simply very wise and knowing LastGirlOnTheLeft .

Can't stand him either, makes me shudder

noisewithdirton Fri 09-Jun-17 19:51:12

Yeah not so sure about Tom Hardy either - maybe it's the name Tom...

JontyDoggle37 Fri 09-Jun-17 19:52:54

Kipper vote here. He's a freakazoid. End of.

papayasareyum Fri 09-Jun-17 19:55:15

I've always fancied him.
I fancied him in the eighties.
I still fancy him.
He's lovely.

EarlessToothlessVagabond Fri 09-Jun-17 19:56:42

No you can't fancy him. He has plastic flesh coloured pants like a ken doll. No genitals.

We had to read The Outsiders at school and watch the film which he was in, definitely not attractive
