Of course he didn't. These faux outrage things are so predictable I bet lunch with somebody that it wasn't true while never reading  beyond a single headline.
 
2013-11-11 08:54:09 AM
Well he's a douchebag for plenty of other things. Hold on, there's a process server at the door. That was quick.

This post has been audited by Scientology to say that Tom Cruise is clear and we should try to remove our thetans before trying to besmirch his character or sexuality.

OK Tom, thanks. If I ever am involved in a libel trial for neglecting my daughter, I'll remember not to mention Afghanistan.

PS- You look like Liberace.

Thank God we have CNN to fact check the media for us.
 
2013-11-11 09:53:32 AM
I think what pisses me off the most about this is that all these click-baiting articles have that as the headline and then IN THE ARTICLE they'll say "just kidding, he didn't really say that, here's what he actually said." I really hate online media.

If Tom Cruise were to marry Gwynneth Paltrow, the world would have a place to focus 100 percent of their hostility.

Heh, when I saw the Fark headline from before my immediate thought was, "probably some bullshiat taken out of context" and never clicked the link. I read this one and I was right, 100 internet points for me.

As long as we're clearing things up:

Jerry Jones never said he fired Rob Ryan because he wanted a "less aggressive" defense. (Less complicated, maybe, but not less aggressive.)
Al Gore never said he invented the internet.
Kirk never said "Beam Me Up Scotty!"
Yogi Berra never said half the things he said.
No scientist ever "recanted" on their death bed.

Really. He's chief engineer, not some drone transporter operator. Although Kirk did say "Scotty, beam me up" in Trek 4 but it was just like the 7 of them.

God, I hate those farkers... The TV show is even worse than the website. I've accidentally watched the first few minutes a couple of times and want to firebomb the place instantly.

Cruise is turning into a whack-a-doodle douchebag, but that doesn't mean that he needs TMZ to assemble a word salad out of multiple satements.

I realize he didn't say it and it's a non issue but if you've ever been on a set, actors act like they're the most put upon people in the world, when all they do is play video games in their trailer while people who work for a living spend hours setting up a shot so they can come out, deliver a few lines and go back to their trailer.

I know we all like to joke and say that watching this show or that show kills your brain cells and make you dumber.

But I've got a hypothesis that I'd really like to test.  I posit that if you watch TMZ for an extended period of time...like say, an entire episode...you actually will get irrevocably dumber.

That 30-minute waste of celluloid and/or digital space should be regulated under the same codes as meth.  Not even once.

OK.  Allow me to fantasize for a bit.

I've always wanted to be the star of an action movie.  Gunfights, explosions, I get the girl, so on and so forth.  But I've always envisioned my participation as being heavily involved - not just doing as many stunts as the insurance companies will allow, but helping to set them up, or discussing ideas with the director, fellow cast members and/or stunt coordinators.  In general, not being the type you described.

Does this happen more often than I would think (which is, not very)?
 
2013-11-11 11:01:57 AM
Yes subby, because that's what people do, forward stories about things celebrities might have said. Not only have I never done this, I've never even received one. Not even from my crazy uncle who thinks Benghazi was orchestrated to ensure Obama's re-election by a secret cabal of Jews, Muslims, and fictional villains led by the Cookie Crook from Cookie Crisp cereal.

I seriously can't get past whatever the shiat is at the beginning, the whole 'War Room' setup, or whatever it is, it's why I've never made it more than a few minutes in.

I could believe it. Just from the few minutes I've seen here and there I would put it at the top of the heap of all the garbage TV out there. I don't think I could even respect someone who watches it as a guilty pleasure. It's like one level above being entertained by a flashing light.

Clutch2013: Does this happen more often than I would think (which is, not very)?


Well a guy like Cruise, who is also a producer on most of his films now, yeah. They have creative input but even they usually defer to the stunt coordinators and the director because they know more about what they're doing than the stars do. I think Vin Diesel planned out a lot of his own stuff for Riddick but then he also put up a lot of his own money. So every production is different.

Usually though, everyone knows their roles and usually the star doesn't care enough to want to work on the creative end. Ultimately it's the director who's responsible for what ends up on the screen unless he's a total puppet, which is why I think Lucas takes too much shiat for the goofy stuff in Indy4. He didn't direct the thing.

I used to watch the TV show sometimes. They used to follow the celebs around and try to provoke them into doing something stupid, which they could then record and show to all the drooling gossip hounds of the world, but now they spend half the show sitting around and talking to the retarded staff, who all seem to be angling for their own reality show too. it must cost too much money to actually go out and find "celebrities," when they can just sit around and make stupid jokes about things and watch Harvey suck on his straw. The audience probably doesn't even notice the difference.

True, but I can still hate on Lucas for contributing his pants-on-head stupid ideas.

Plus, there's always prequel hate.

Well, Lucas wrote the story. He didn't write the screenplay and of course he didn't direct it. Spielberg didn't have to include the CGI gophers and monkeys. Even if the refrigerator thing was Lucas' idea, Spielberg could have shot it in a way that wouldn't have looked like it should have pulverized every bone in Indy's body upon impact.

I'm not a hater, I liked Indy4 more than Last Crusade. I'm just saying, Lucas gets a disproportionate amount of hate for that film. No wonder he had it with the internet haters and sold Star Wars for a measly $4billion.

Yeah, I don't see how people can watch that shiat for half an hour, or however long it goes. I guess it's not all THAT important that I am outraged at celebrities.

My theory on this is he expected educated people to understand what the truth behind the statement was, but also expected the rubes to believe it at face value.  It's a win-win for him.  It's bad phrasing (and as a politician he should and did know better IMHO), but not technically a lie.  It's intellectual dishonesty because the message received (by many) is not the truth even if on some level it is true.

I can't speak to anyone else, but that rumor was rampant in West Hollywood beginning after the release of "Top Gun." Now, it may just have been the insanely homoerotic undertones of that movie; but there were other rumors at the same time that Tom was screwing certain openly gay directors and producers (among others). This was before he found the Gospel of Hubbard, IIRC,

Now, that's a long time for a rumor to be around and not successfully disproven. It was about that same time that I knew people who knew Jodie Foster was gay as well. So I totally believe Tommy is gay as six days in spring, no matter what he's "done" to show he's conclusively gay or not.
