mjohnson71: I'm looking forward to the day that a major Hollywood action star can be out of the closet, and nobody really gives a flying fark.


QFT. As a straight chick, I would just like to say to all the closeted gay male movie stars out there who are no doubt reading this and hanging on every word I write: We don't care that you're gay. Really. It's not as if we are going to get to sleep with any of you good looking men-on-film, straight or otherwise, anyway. Our fantasy lives already have to be incredibly elaborate in order for us to achieve a convincing daydream about you--bracketing your gayness is no big deal.

Now, on the other hand, watching you take a gorgeous woman like Katie Holmes and reduce her to a sallow wraith with your web of deception and control--that kind of kills my clit boner. Just FYI.

Since it looks like all of Tom's beards... uhh... I mean ex-wives are around 11 years younger than the one before (Mimi Rogers b. 1956, Nicole Kidman b. 1967, Katie Holmes b. 1978), I'm betting he's looking for someone around 23 years old.

Enter Julianne Hough. She's 23 (b. 1988 - so only 10 years younger than Katie), she's experienced as a beard (she's currently "dating" Ryan Seacrest), and she just starred in "Rock of Ages" with Tom. They could claim they fell in love during the filming but, because Tom was still married, it would have been wrong to act on those supposed feelings. Now that Katie's leaving him, it would be OK for them to go out as a "couple".

The real problem with Cruise isn't that he's a self-loathing, middle-aged, dwarfish closeted gay man.

He's a control freak. Pure narcissist. Scary, even by Hollywood standards. I suspect his character from Tropic Thunder is more like him than any other he's ever played.

Real straight men aren't threatened by gay guys... they realize that if 2 dudes are farking each other that means there are 2 more available women in the dating pool. And if those women are farking each other too, that's totally not a problem either.

metaskie: So, I don't get the "beard" meme. Anyone help a lurker out?


Aw, people keep giving you definitions, but here's how it works:

I have a friend I've known for years (since college) who's a research chemist for a VERY uptight Big Pharma company. She's gay. Every couple of months there's a function of some sort - a dinner, a reception for a visiting researcher, a ceremony, etc - and she's invited with a note to "bring someone."

Well, if she brought her partner, her asshole boss would probably stoke out. So I always go as her date. I'm presentable, I'm single, and I own a tux. So in return for pretending to be her boyfriend, I get to eat free food, drink free booze, and sometimes even go on overnights to DC or Atlanta. I'm her beard.

Leeds: So what's the cause? Anyone want to offer an opinion?

I think it's a tossup between the two obvious options:

1) It's because Tom Cruise is gay and that doesn't make for an easy hetero-marriage.

2) It's because Katie couldn't stand being in their cult anymore and she wants to leave scientology.


Katie... Katie never loved Tom, she was offered a lucrative contract. But as any arragned marriage, they formed a relationship of sorts, never sexual, think skipping the "salad days" - She was in on it, knows he is gay, was told by his handlers and him never to make comments about it and his private wrestling matches, and in 5 years she could resign.
But the constant Scientology buzzards circling around her every move numbed her, broke her, and she loves that little girl, but Suri is the child of Scientology, and Suri as she grows up, naturally with Scientology handlers finding ways to plant influence in her life, will make the remainder of Katie's motherhood quite simply, a living hell.

I submitted this with a similar headline, but simple wins.

From what I've read, Katie signed a 5 year contract, part of the provision was to give birth to a child via artificial insemination of Cruises. After the 5 years was up, she could retain primary custody of the child and go about her business, with a gag order on anything Scientology.

She's been heading out in NYC with no makeup lately. Tom Cruise hates hates hates this. Her publicist called her to tell her that Tom was getting mad that her hag look was ruining his reputation and she laughed and said "Good!"

I can understand, given the jurisdiction she has filed her petition in and the custodial request, why Katie Holmes has done this.

Ditch the whole "the first five years have passed on the contract" and "Tom is gay" narrative for a minute. Katie filed for divorce in the city and county of New York and has requested sole legal custody of Suri as well as primary residential custody. It's starting to sound like Katie Holmes wants to get Suri far, far away from the Church of Scientology.

For years Tom has claimed their primary residence as being in California and word filtering around is he'll try to get this case heard in a California court, because it could otherwise cause him to owe a buttload of city and state taxes in NY. New York courts are more likely to award Katie her custody request, seeing as Tom spends a lot of time working. California courts tend to favor joint legal custody in divorce cases where children are involved.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/06/julianne-hough-tom-cruise-la p -dance-rock-of-ages_n_1575422.html

"Rock of Ages" star Julianne Hough has a mad crush on her co-star Tom Cruise, and she is not exactly trying to hide it. The actress was on "LIVE! with Kelly" to discuss a scene that was so steamy, it had to be cut from the film.

"It was a little too hot and steamy and sexy, it will be on the director's cut, though ... Let's just say I'll always have that in my back pocket, that I gave Tom Cruise a lap dance," Hough said.

It's a shame, too, because Hough reportedly took her role as Sherrie Christian in "Rock of Ages" specifically for that lap dance. PopSugar caught up with the star at the Spike Guys' Choice Awards, where she gushed about Cruise.

There are tales the kid isn't even his? Was she pregnant before marriage or something? Explain!


Katie was fking Chris Klein, then she cheated on Chris with Josh Hartnett, then she got pregnant somewhere in all that, then Chris called her a fat pig and made fun of her weight and shiat then Katie met, hooked up with, and married Tom Cruise in the span of like 4 weeks....

On Tom Cruise' end, what I remember is that he interviewed about 4 different women, including some black Olympian chick, before settling with Katie who was the only one who came close to telling him 'yes', all the other chicks were skeeved off by his obsession with Scientology during the meetings to be his next wife.

So the baby is either Chris Klein's or Josh Hartnett's. My money was on Chris Klein forever because of the timing, and the fact that it being Josh's was too slutty and ironic and tragic for words given everything..... but Suri looks more and more like Josh everyday. I have no idea. All I do know is, it ain't Tommy's.

Disposable Rob: detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: Pants full of macaroni!!: Katie is free again - but at what cost?

How long until all of Clearwater hunts her down and forces her back to SeaOrg (or whatever it's called)?

I wonder if Scientology might be backing down on their homophobia. With droves of actors coming out the past few years and with Scientology relying on Hollywood starpower, this can't be helping their recruiting efforts at all. While I doubt Cruise will ever come out, with Travolta it's impossible to hide anymore.


Technically, Scientology considers homosexuality on the same level of any other physical manifestation of past trauma (basically, it's all in your head and it can be audited out) be it this or a past life. And I mean that literally - I remember being told as a kid that needing glasses or being dyslexic (like Cruise is) was the same level of disorder as being gay, and not immoral or anything.

It's just that when someone starts bumping into poles after they should have been "cured", it's a lot easier to physically prove that someone still needs glasses, rather than they're still gay.

Straight or Gay, and everything inbetween, at some point you have to become comfortable with who you are. They have certainly become comfortable with this manufactured image of themselves, but let the inside slowly rot away.

It's just really farking hard to shut out the world and carry on without letting it get to you when your whole life is on display for the world to pick apart.

As for the current venue, Tom has no one to blame but himself; in order to avoid the taxes levied by the city and state on income for residents on NYC, he transferred the deed on the apartment to a trust benefiting Katie. That caused the apartment to become her property of record.

... need to get my hands on that old video of Tom laughing his ass off during Kanye West's 'Golddigger', where he could be lip read saying, 'That's so true'...

Let me give you an example of "property of record" - in my case, I maintained a Nevada address for years (my father's home), simply by renewing my Nevada drivers' license every four years and having his water bill set up in my name. After my second husband tossed me through a third floor window in California, I headed to Reno immediately. Once in Reno, I called a lawyer friend who filed the papers for me. He faxed the petition and proof of service to another lawyer friend of my family, who had my husband sign them as soon as the SOB made bail on the charge of attempted murder. Proof of service was faxed back, taken before the judge and the divorce was final in a day.

In Katie's case, all she did was elect to live in the apartment Tom deeded over to the trust... because he wanted to have a NYC address without paying NY taxes on his income.

I wonder if this means that we're going to have them fighting it out over jurisdictional issues for years. I can't imagine that Tom is going to agree to jurisdiction in NY without a major fight.


I suspect the jurisdiction is a bargaining chip; Tom either agrees to allowing Katie sole legal and primary physical custody and she drops the NY petition, then re-files in CA or she'll fight him tooth and nail, then let NYS and NYC tax authorities have their chunk of his ass. Katie has retained Allan E. Mayefsky and Jonathan Wolfe, two very high powered attorneys specializing in nasty divorces (Mayefsky) and financial settlements (Wolfe). I'd be willing to bet she's also been in contact with Laura Wasserman in Los Angeles, in case Tom is willing to agree on the custody issue to get the case out of the NY courts.

Max Awesome: As for Tom - maybe he'll drop the straight charade now? Is it really so important for actors to be 100% straight these days to maintain an audience? There are certainly enough ladies on the internet who are fascinated by male-male slash pairings. I think it holds the same appeal that girl-on-girl holds for guys, and more women are willing to admit it these days.


It has little to do with Hollywood, and everything to do with Scientology. Being gay is not allowed in Scientology. He pairs up with women (as does Travolta) because it is what the cult organization orders. Their top celebrity faces can't be seen promoting a lifestyle that is against the tenets of their order.

Of course modern Hollywood has no problem with gay actors playing straight roles, and it doesn't seem to impact their sex appeal when it comes to women, either. This is about the religion, not the tabloids.

Katie and Chris broke up in May 2005. She got engaged to Tom in June 2005. The baby was born in April 2006. Pregnancies are not 13 months.


The baby was alleged to have been born on April 16, 2006. However, there are reports that no one on staff at the hospital recalls seeing Katie that day and the birth certificate was not filed until May 5, 2006. Suri was first seen in an exclusive photo spread in Vanity Fair magazine, specifically the October 2006 edition.

If you look here, specifically at the photo dated January 15, 2006, it appears that Katie is either carrying an ingrown fetus or she had the baby by then.

It may well be the child was born in December of 2005 or January of 2006 and kept under wraps in order to further the story.

I don't know shiat. I don't know these people. I remember the Chris Klein thing because his public comment about Katie's weight tore all the hotness away from him, and I used to think he was a hot piece of Asian-American ass. But he went there. There's loveable frat boy, then there's saying that about your lady. He crossed the line.

Tommy interviewing all those hoes only caught my attention because one of the hoes was a black chick. it's like noticing the black chick in the harem books of that Omar Sharif movie from the 80s, or the black chick in the bride book of The Last Emperor. Some shiat just sticks out. I was proud of hoes for being able to say 'no' to Scientology. I felt sad that Catholic Katie thought she could stick it out like Nicole did... but pictures after the fact showed just how rundown Scientology and the minders assigned to her wore Katie out.

Katie's pregnancy situation stuck out because the months were all wrong, and I totally bought that she had the baby, then wore a pregnancy suit to keep up certain illusions until the public timing was right. Then there was the (Vogue?) cover where alleged Suri looked too old to be her alleged age. Katie's alleged shenanigans with the pregnancy suit is why I never bought Beyonce's bullshiat this past year during the surrogacy of Blu Cantrell Ivy.

I don't know these people. All gossip is wrong. But there it is.

rynthetyn: farkeruk: rynthetyn: Well, as much as the Trekkie, err, sorry, Trekker nerds like to complain about J.J. Abrams turning Star Trek into a popcorn action movie, Zachary Quinto as action-hero-Spock is about the closest thing we've got at the moment to an out action hero, though he's not remotely in the big, burly category.

But Spock isn't a romantic action hero, or a human male. It's about being sexual - Ian McKellen is, arguably, the biggest gay action actor ever, having played Magneto and Gandalf, but neither are sexual characters. You could probably have Professor X played by a gay character.

But I doubt you'll have a gay Kirk or a gay Han Solo anytime soon.

You're forgetting that the J.J. Abrams version has the romantic Spock and Uhura angle. For better or worse, Abrams turned Spock into the romantic action hero who does dramatic action-y stuff and gets the girl, and Quinto had to sell the idea that underneath the cool logical exterior Spock had this deep burning passion for Uhura; If Quinto hadn't been able to pull off the love story angle the movie would have been panned on the grounds that Spock and Uhura together was laughable and stretched suspension of disbelief to its breaking point.


The problem is, Quinto didn't pull off the love story angle. I watched the film for the second time only a week ago and while I suppose having Uhura attracted to Spock isn't all that different from having Nurse Chapel attracted to him, as she was in the original series, having Spock return the feeling just didn't work at all.

Of course, almost nothing in that film really worked--it was just as awful on the second viewing as the first, if not worse.

(I apologize for this brief Trek nerd interruption of your Cruise/Holmes thread.)

Jon Snow: rynthetyn: Enter Julianne Hough. She's 23 (b. 1988 - so only 10 years younger than Katie), she's experienced as a beard (she's currently "dating" Ryan Seacrest), and she just starred in "Rock of Ages" with Tom. They could claim they fell in love during the filming but, because Tom was still married, it would have been wrong to act on those supposed feelings. Now that Katie's leaving him, it would be OK for them to go out as a "couple".

Interesting speculation. She's been with Ryan Seacrest for a while, that contract ought to be up soon, and it would definitely raise her profile. However, if Cruise goes too young it's going to end up getting him a lot of backlash for being creepy, which might make him think twice about going with her.

I remember back in 2006 or whatever, hearing about the 5 year contract, and kind of laughed about it in an "wouldn't be surprised" kind way. But I didn't really think about much until now.

"Rock of Ages" star Julianne Hough has a mad crush on her co-star Tom Cruise, and she is not exactly trying to hide it. The actress was on "LIVE! with Kelly" to discuss a scene that was so steamy, it had to be cut from the film.

"It was a little too hot and steamy and sexy, it will be on the director's cut, though ... Let's just say I'll always have that in my back pocket, that I gave Tom Cruise a lap dance," Hough said.

It's a shame, too, because Hough reportedly took her role as Sherrie Christian in "Rock of Ages" specifically for that lap dance. PopSugar caught up with the star at the Spike Guys' Choice Awards, where she gushed about Cruise.

Praise Cheesus: I can understand, given the jurisdiction she has filed her petition in and the custodial request, why Katie Holmes has done this.

Ditch the whole "the first five years have passed on the contract" and "Tom is gay" narrative for a minute. Katie filed for divorce in the city and county of New York and has requested sole legal custody of Suri as well as primary residential custody. It's starting to sound like Katie Holmes wants to get Suri far, far away from the Church of Scientology.

For years Tom has claimed their primary residence as being in California and word filtering around is he'll try to get this case heard in a California court, because it could otherwise cause him to owe a buttload of city and state taxes in NY. New York courts are more likely to award Katie her custody request, seeing as Tom spends a lot of time working. California courts tend to favor joint legal custody in divorce cases where children are involved.


The thing is, you've brought logic to a thread involving Scientology.

Walker: Yeah, there have been blind gossip items about this for months saying they were going to get divorced. Sometimes the gossip is true!

Here's a blind item from May 21:

This actress - who worked much more several years ago than she does now - has found the perfect way to annoy her controlling husband. He always insisted that she not step foot out of the house unless she was looking her best (full hair, makeup, clothes) because she was a "reflection of his image".

But now that they have quietly separated, she consistently walks out of the house in casual clothes and messy hair and no makeup (even when her destination isn't the gym). Of course, the paparazzi are there, just waiting to snap her photo. Her publicist called and said, "Do you realize how much you're pissing him off when you do that?" She replied, "Absolutely!" and giggled. Sounds like it's just her little way of reclaiming her life.

[img.photobucket.com image 445x529]
/her identity concealed for her protection (but yeah it's Katie)


Also this one from April 30 (note the Cruises are worth $275 million, hence the $300 million thing at the end):

Rumours abound concerning the marriage of a famous couple, yet there is a bewildering silence in the media.

Let's call the pair Mr. and Mrs. VIP - I'm not even saying whether they are British. Recently, Mrs. VIP failed to turn up to an event that she might reasonably have been expected to attend. Strangely, the media scarcely mentioned the fact.

Meanwhile, the whispers say that Mr. and Mrs. VIP are no longer together and are using the excuse of busy lives as a cover. The theory is that they won't announce the split for family reasons. Maybe, but a divorce would also mean the disentangling of considerable wealth and property interests...and a lot of secrets still bind this couple together.

There is already one privacy agreement with the media in place regarding a past incident, and the continuation of the Leveson Inquiry into press ethics might explain the reluctance of even the hardest-nosed British papers to expose the situation: so we have stalemate.

This suits Mr. and Mrs. VIP as they don't want nosy parker journalists taking a close look at their life, or heaven forbid, some forensic biographer shining a flashlight into the dark corners of their union. The funny friends? The magic millions? Oh no! So expect a choreographed Hollywood-style loving couple appearance with cheesy smiles this summer.

And it's not Charles and Camilla. The '$300 million divorce' exists only in the fantasyland of US tabloids. No names, please, in the comments: TMR is read in some very high places.

Katie was fking Chris Klein, then she cheated on Chris with Josh Hartnett, then she got pregnant somewhere in all that, then Chris called her a fat pig and made fun of her weight and shiat then Katie met, hooked up with, and married Tom Cruise in the span of like 4 weeks....

On Tom Cruise' end, what I remember is that he interviewed about 4 different women, including some black Olympian chick, before settling with Katie who was the only one who came close to telling him 'yes', all the other chicks were skeeved off by his obsession with Scientology during the meetings to be his next wife.

So the baby is either Chris Klein's or Josh Hartnett's. My money was on Chris Klein forever because of the timing, and the fact that it being Josh's was too slutty and ironic and tragic for words given everything..... but Suri looks more and more like Josh everyday. I have no idea. All I do know is, it ain't Tommy's.

How do you know all this?

I remember her having the kid shortly after the marriage to Miss Cruise, and that she married Cruise about two months after meeting him.

It was a marriage of convenience for both of them.

Wasn't there a span of time before they showed off pics of Suri? Or am I thinking of someone else?


Yeah and they milked it for all it was worth even going so far as selling to the highest bidder (People mag). Nevertheless, before the kid was born, if one looked at the timeline alone, Miss Cruise's paternity was questionable. If one also considered the kid's resemblance to Klein, Cruise's becomes highly doubtful.

Now, if someone gets some of the kid's DNA ...

StewMcG: Since it looks like all of Tom's beards... uhh... I mean ex-wives are around 11 years younger than the one before (Mimi Rogers b. 1956, Nicole Kidman b. 1967, Katie Holmes b. 1978), I'm betting he's looking for someone around 23 years old.

Enter Julianne Hough. She's 23 (b. 1988 - so only 10 years younger than Katie), she's experienced as a beard (she's currently "dating" Ryan Seacrest), and she just starred in "Rock of Ages" with Tom. They could claim they fell in love during the filming but, because Tom was still married, it would have been wrong to act on those supposed feelings. Now that Katie's leaving him, it would be OK for them to go out as a "couple".

/just a theory


I always figured that Ryan was really dating her brother, Derek, and that Ryan was just using her as a cover so they could spend time together.

This first paragraph of THIS movie review captures your comment perfectly...

FTFA: Tom Cruise should play nothing but egomaniacs. They encourage him to commune with his sense of humour, which otherwise lies dormant, subsumed by his urge to be the hero and show how well he can run, jump, scale tall buildings and hurl himself off them again.

But Spock isn't a romantic action hero, or a human male. It's about being sexual - Ian McKellen is, arguably, the biggest gay action actor ever, having played Magneto and Gandalf, but neither are sexual characters. You could probably have Professor X played by a gay character.

You're forgetting that the J.J. Abrams version has the romantic Spock and Uhura angle. For better or worse, Abrams turned Spock into the romantic action hero who does dramatic action-y stuff and gets the girl, and Quinto had to sell the idea that underneath the cool logical exterior Spock had this deep burning passion for Uhura; If Quinto hadn't been able to pull off the love story angle the movie would have been panned on the grounds that Spock and Uhura together was laughable and stretched suspension of disbelief to its breaking point.

Glad you made it out as well as the whole family! The number of families torn apart by that "religion" is crazy. Institutionalized abuse is horrendous no matter how old that organization is.

/Hubbard was a hack


Yes. Thankfully, despite being ministers, my folks never made enough money to get any farther than clear and told me and my brother that we could be any religion we wanted. In the end they were suckered in in the late 70s because the educational system and their dysfunctional families had failed them and they were looking for answers. Luckily, my mom was always skeptical of the Sea Org, and thought a million year contract was ridiculously excessive even when she believed it to be possible, and kept us kids at a long arms length from those kinds of things.

But when I fooled an E-Meter at age 8 (lied that I had learned anything from a course, because I didn't want to have to go to any more sessions) it kinda damaged the foundation that any later belief as a young adult would need. Which is probably why I thought who cares about a million year contract? How are they gonna know who I am after I've reincarnated? Suckers!

My folks are in the process of getting the $5k they had invested/saved with the COS. Once that's done, every last tie will have been severed. Well, except friends still in the COS, but I guess the Santa Barbara chapter was laid back because they still talk to my folks and no ones been declared an SP or anything.

Aren't there lots of rumors about Vin Diesel?

So I've heard, and I don't care. He's good at what he does, and I still want to see his take on Hannibal. Wentworth Miller is supposed to be gay, too, and he does action *and* drama well. I don't care.

I like it when dudes are 'out', it's more honest than being like transexuals who try to fool people. The mainstream cinema needs more gay couples. And the bonus would be they'd be Real instead of all the Fake Ass Lipstick Lesbians out there.

So Tommy just needs to be out, be himself, still play roles he does well in instead of being pigeonholed like in the 90s like poor Rupert Everett.. times have changed... he can do whatever he wants, he has the Triple A star rating.

Actually, he needs to do more gray roles. He shines i ...


Vin Diesel is one of those guys who is clearly a lot smarter than a lot of his roles let on, and yeah, I would like to see his version of Hannibal too. Hollywood needs to let him do more of the nerdy projects that he seems to really be interested in.

I think that as much as Rupert Everett likes to insist that it's being out that killed his career, he needs to fess up that he did more to hurt his own career by being a general ass and not being a good enough actor that after he started losing his looks people were willing to put up with his being an ass. I'm sure being out hurt him some, but people probably would have been more willing to overlook that if he hadn't developed a reputation of being terrible to work with.

In any case, this is a different era than even a decade ago, as evidenced by the near total non-news of various actors coming out over the last few months. Nobody really seems to care anymore, even with actors coming out while their careers are on their way up. If Tom Cruise or John Travolta ever did come out, it would of course still be news because of all of the past history and everything, but a good publicist can spin even the bearding by painting them as victims of a less tolerant era. Even Travolta with his pervyness could end up getting an image boost and having everyone feeling sorry for him rather than repulsed by his masseuse antics if it's done right.

I just can't imagine what it would be like to go your entire career putting on an act and living a lie in order to stay in the closet. The closet is a horrible place to be and to live like that long term is enough to make you as batshiat crazy as Tom Cruise is.

How long until all of Clearwater hunts her down and forces her back to SeaOrg (or whatever it's called)?

I wonder if Scientology might be backing down on their homophobia. With droves of actors coming out the past few years and with Scientology relying on Hollywood starpower, this can't be helping their recruiting efforts at all. While I doubt Cruise will ever come out, with Travolta it's impossible to hide anymore.

Technically, Scientology considers homosexuality on the same level of any other physical manifestation of past trauma (basically, it's all in your head and it can be audited out) be it this or a past life. And I mean that literally - I remember being told as a kid that needing glasses or being dyslexic (like Cruise is) was the same level of disorder as being gay, and not immoral or anything.

It's just that when someone starts bumping into poles after they should have been "cured", it's a lot easier to physically prove that someone still needs glasses, rather than they're still gay.

QFT. As a straight chick, I would just like to say to all the closeted gay male movie stars out there who are no doubt reading this and hanging on every word I write: We don't care that you're gay. Really. It's not as if we are going to get to sleep with any of you good looking men-on-film, straight or otherwise, anyway. Our fantasy lives already have to be incredibly elaborate in order for us to achieve a convincing daydream about you--bracketing your gayness is no big deal.

She's been heading out in NYC with no makeup lately. Tom Cruise hates hates hates this. Her publicist called her to tell her that Tom was getting mad that her hag look was ruining his reputation and she laughed and said "Good!"

Liberace successfully sued a couple of rags who called him a homosexual & I think most of Cruise's were settled out of court. Suing for libel these days because someone called you a homosexual would get you laughed out of court and a trial date sometime in the next thirty years.


I am pretty sure he also sued in England where those cases go much better for the plaintiff.

I present Neil Patrick Harris. Openly gay megastar. Does TV, Movies, Broadway, the usual triple threat for making the big bucks.

I'm not normally one to b*tch about headlines, but the fact that this got greenlit over the anal sex headline is one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in American history.


Tom Cruise has already successfully sued a couple of rags over calling him gay. Drew does not need to be next (even if he does allow people to be racist pigs on Fark.)

I'm fairly certain -- without even having read it -- that the prenup she signed in CA would utterly, completely, strictly prohibit her even WRITING a book such as that, let alone publishing one.

I wonder if Scientology might be backing down on their homophobia. With droves of actors coming out the past few years and with Scientology relying on Hollywood starpower, this can't be helping their recruiting efforts at all. While I doubt Cruise will ever come out, with Travolta it's impossible to hide anymore.

I'm a publicist for Tom Cruise.

So I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies.

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.

But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do.

Cuz some Farkers belive anything they hear.

Normally I couldn't care less about this sort of thing. But for some reason this really does make me sad. I remember that time Katie gave that interview about being a little girl and telling people she was going to marry Tom Cruise. And then it came true. There's something profoundly sad about that. OK, BACK TO TEH GHEY JOKES

Yeah, there have been blind gossip items about this for months saying they were going to get divorced. Sometimes the gossip is true!

Here's a blind item from May 21:

This actress - who worked much more several years ago than she does now - has found the perfect way to annoy her controlling husband. He always insisted that she not step foot out of the house unless she was looking her best (full hair, makeup, clothes) because she was a "reflection of his image".

But now that they have quietly separated, she consistently walks out of the house in casual clothes and messy hair and no makeup (even when her destination isn't the gym). Of course, the paparazzi are there, just waiting to snap her photo. Her publicist called and said, "Do you realize how much you're pissing him off when you do that?" She replied, "Absolutely!" and giggled. Sounds like it's just her little way of reclaiming her life.

A beard is a common term for a spouse who's only purpose is to hide a person's true sexuality. In other words, he married Katie Holmes in order to seem heterosexual to the public.
