AIBU?

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

Secretlife0fbees · 09/06/2017 19:41

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.

Covfefe · 09/06/2017 19:41

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

EarlessToothlessVagabond · 09/06/2017 19:43

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 · 09/06/2017 19:44

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

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

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 · 09/06/2017 19:46

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

LastGirlOnTheLeft · 09/06/2017 19:47

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 · 09/06/2017 19:47

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 · 09/06/2017 19:48

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

Snurk @Capes Grin

JaneEyre70 · 09/06/2017 19:49

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 · 09/06/2017 19:49

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

You are simply very wise and knowing LastGirlOnTheLeft .

Can't stand him either, makes me shudder

noisewithdirton · 09/06/2017 19:51

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

JontyDoggle37 · 09/06/2017 19:52

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

papayasareyum · 09/06/2017 19:55

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

EarlessToothlessVagabond · 09/06/2017 19:56

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

Haha! He's never been attractive. Outsiders is an amazing film. And Rumblefish.
