A few years ago, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes became one of Hollywood’s more coveted couples. Cruise excited moviegoers with his dashing action performances in Minority Report, Mission Impossible I, II and III and the epic film, The Last Samurai.
Holmes delighted teenagers and young adults in her years on “Party of Five”. The cult classic gave rise young-oriented dramas, like the CW’s “Dawson Creek” and “Seventh Heaven”.
When the couple met, it proved that opposite personalities attract. Cruise’s appearances on “Oprah” are the stuff of legends. He bounced all over the couch giving high-fives and grinning from ear to ear. Check out he and Jamie Foxx’s showing in 2003. Hilarious! He embraced his action roles. He showed fans that he REALLY enjoyed his work. Comedian, Natasha Leggero did a Tom Cruise “impersonation” on E’s Cheslea Lately.
Holmes shied away from Hollywood attention. She did guest appearances on sitcom shows. But, “Party of Five” gave her a cult following. She, Mischa Barton and Teve Campbell became the fresh faces of “young, hot Hollywood”.
After Cruise left superstar/actress, Nicole Kidman, he found Holmes. And together, the couple clicked. Holmes embraced Cruise’s practice of Scientology. The Church of Scientology has recruited several Hollywood stars, like Cruise, Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. In 2005, Holmes gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Suri.
What was once a twosome, became a threesome. Pictures showed Cruise displaying his usual, massive grin. Holmes has on a smile of content. I didn’t say happiness. And Suri looked to be ready to serve as the family matriarch. Yes, I said that.
At age 3, Suri already has a favorite store to shop. She already has a favorite city to visit. She already has a firm idea of what to do in her life. Last week, she desired to have an exercise room. Mommy and Daddy made sure that dream wasn’t “deferred”. They built a workout room for Suri. Damn the neighbors!
Either, Suri is extremely gifted Or, her family lied like a sack of poo. I’ve never heard of three years old knowing their future plans. I’ve heard of three year old knowing when they have poppy diapers. But, I don’t have kids.
Some parents read to their children before giving birth. This method almost insured the child born to have some intelligence. However, Suri must’ve been read to. Her mom must have put earphones on her belly and played books on CDs. Comparing she at age 3 and I at age 3, I was a real dumbass.
The future for Cruise and Holmes has a Valkyrie, movie premiere. The Cruise clan, the Beckmans (Dave and Victoria) and Smith and Pinkett are guaranteed to shimmy on the Red Carpet. Daddy Tom outdid himself with the eye patch. But, he appeared more like an extra on “The Village People” than a feared, Nazi officer.
Take it picture, folks. Put it in your scrapbook.
