    Hey everyone! “Where’s Shelly?” <—-Google it to find out! Tom Cruise might know.

    I am hoping that the writer of this article does not speak English as a first language…

    LadyK….did you even research this bit on Cruise?

    He was born in Syracuse, and the first wife you mentioned was actually married to one of his great, great, great, grandfathers.

    He is a tip….when cutting and pasting from Wikipedia….proofread your stolen work…hack.

    Also a lot of adoration for his early stuff from the 80’s to 2000. Have you seen Oblivion, Jack Reacher or Rock of Ages? Not so much a powerhouse these days as a caricature of a once good actor as his recent works demonstrate.

  6. Jennifer says:

    Tom Cruise has certainly given many African-Americans prominent roles in his films – must commend him for that – he seems like an awesome mentor to those he’s accessible. (Lucky few!!!) Off-screen, hes done an excellent job with his son Connor as his career is now really taking shape.

    I can’t wait until the new movie Edge of Tomorrow comes out.

    Tom Cruise proved to be the greatest actor of his generation and many of his movies are timeless classics. I hope he wins an Oscar because he deserves it.

  9. Merriwether says:

    Cruise has never disappointed me in a movie. Whatever the script-writer creates for Cruise to be and say, Cruise always knocks it out of the park.
