Tokyo, Japan (AHN) – Tom Cruise has fans all over the world lining up for his attention – especially in Japan. Because of his love, time and devotion to the country, the cutie-patootie actor was recently awarded with his own special day named after him.
The Japan Memorial Day Association notes that Tom’s love, admiration and dedication to the country is what led the actor to be presented with his own special day.
Before filming began for “Mission: Impossible 3,” Tom’s last feature film was “The Last Samurai” a box office success in 2003. Tom has said he spent endless hours researching his role in the movie – a movie which focuses on Japanese culture and tradition. According to ContactMusic.com, the movie grossed $117 million more in Japan than in the U.S.
Tom has a huge fan base in Japan – fans who appreciate the actor’s efforts and time to visit the country more than any other major Hollywood star. His last trip to Japan was last spring to promote the upcoming “Mission: Impossible 3,” where he spent time with over 100 fans on a train tide from Osaka to Tokyo. During his stay, Tom also revealed that he would love to shoot another “Mission” installment in Japan.
According to the Japan Memorial Day Association, Tom is the only Hollywood celebrity to ever be awarded with a day named in his honor.
LOS ANGELES (October 26, 2006) — So much for a Tom Cruise â€“ Robert Redford collaboration.
Earlier this week, Variety reported that Cruise was considering three films for his next project, with one of them being an indie film called “Lions for Lambs.”
“Lions” was described as a political drama that follows a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. Cruise would play a congressman alongside Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. Redford would also likely direct, according to Variety.
However, at an event endorsing California’s Prop 87 initiative on Wednesday, the Sundance kid rained on Variety’s parade, dispelling the rumors he was teaming up with Tom.
“Forget it. Don’t listent to the trades,” Redford told Access Hollywood, adding there “just isn’t anything to talk about.”
Among the other films Tom is reportedly considering are “The Ha-Ha,” about a Gulf War vet who’s been rendered mute by his injuries and is now charged with taking care of a 9-year-old girl after her mother goes AWOL; and Spike Lee’s “Selling Time,” about a man who sells back parts of his life for a chance to relive and change the worst day of his life.
The most shocking thing about Tom Cruise’s publicist confirming Nov. 18 as the date for the actor’s marriage to Katie Holmes? Simply the fact that it’s being confirmed.
Cruise is one of Hollywood’s most secretive stars — except when he wants publicity for his movies. Yet, his spokesman Arnold Robinson surprised many by saying, ”Those details are correct” — responding to a Us Weekly report about wedding guests being told to reserve the Nov. 16-19 weekend for the Cruise-Holmes nuptials at an unidentified Italian location.
In addition, famed Italian designer Giorgio Armani confirms he’s creating both Holmes’ gown and Cruise’s wedding suit.
But don’t be carried away by this new Cruise ”openness.” It has very strict limits.
”Even by revealing the date and mentioning the country … a lot is still unanswered. Italy is a big country, and no one — no one! — knows how to organize security like Tom,” a close Cruise source told this column Tuesday.
”Trust me. This is being planned better than a military operation. In fact, I’d suggest President Bush hire Tom to run things in Iraq. It probably would be going better if he was in charge,” the source added — only half-kidding.

Okay, this would be funny, and I’d have to watch Star Trek for the first time… 😀
Actor Tom Cruise is reportedly in negotiations to re-team with ‘Mission: Impossible 3’ director J.J Abrams for the next ‘Star Trek’ movie.
The actor is reportedly a huge fan of the sci-fi franchise and jumped at the chance to play a cameo role in the new film, which will be directed by Abrams.
An insider tells Canada’s TV Guide magazine, “He didn’t even need to be begged to appear in it.”
It’s not known what role Cruise will play, but Trekkies are suggesting he should play a starfleet academy instructor.
The new ‘Star Trek’ film will try to revive the franchise by telling the origins of the first Starship Enterprise crew, featuring a young Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock amongst others.
Annie’s on fire! I’ve had this photoshoot on my computer for over a year now. A visitor sent me those, she asked I wouldnt post her name. Wasn’t sure I’d post the pics, but decided to post now.
I have a few others too, which I just know you guys will love, but I will post just this one today.
I’m sorry about the huge tags, but since I found out others sites are stealing my content, and I know what pictures are mine, cause they’re like my babies, so, huge tags are now required.
Reposting is fine, but credit is necessary. What’s wrong with credit? I’ve always credited my sources
If anyone wants clean copies for fanart or layouts, just e-mail me and I will send them!
