For quite some time I have been waging a private boycott against Tom Cruise. Do I really need to go into specifics as to why I'm boycotting ol' Tommy boy?
The final straw was NOT the couch-jumping on Oprah nor the infamous unprovoked attacked on Brooke Shields. What put me over the edge was the interview I saw him do on "Inside the Actors Studio" with James Lipton. He was so full of himself, talking about the "craft" of acting. It was too much to bear. So I quit him, cold turkey. Which I admit was hard at first, but then he started coming out with stinker after stinker of a movie and I felt justified.
The only times I lift my boycott is to watch either Top Gun or Jerry Maguire. Jerry Maguire was the last movie Tom did in which it seemed as though he was truly enjoying himself.
Oh and Risky Business.
Because who doesn't like to see a youthful Tom in Ray Bans and underpants?
