We are well used to a whole host of British Z-listers turning up for a brief camera-shot in the X Factor audience but this year it could turn very A-list.
According to The Sun, Hollywood actor Tom Cruise is keen to get in on the X Factor action and has been asking one Mr Louis Walsh all about the show.
Louis met Tom at a party recently and told The Sun: “He was intense and wanted to know all about how it works and what goes on behind the scenes.”
It seems unlikely fan Tom has been catching up on previous shows via the internet and just can’t wait to hear all those wannabes singing live.
Of course, there could be more to it than that.
Louis claims that Cruise was keen to know if he himself would be part of the upcoming US version of the show and, presumably if Walsh was not going to present, whether he could get tickets for the British series.
Louis said: “I told him that wouldn’t be a problem. We don’t have tickets yet but I can’t imagine it’d be a problem getting Tom Cruise one.” [source]
Tom Cruise’s rep has rubbished rumours he was injured in a motorcycle accident in LA over the weekend.
The Mission: Impossible star, 47, was reported to have needed medical attention at a hospital following the incident.
But now publicist Amanda Lundberg has set the record straight.
‘Totally false,’ she tells E! Online. ‘Not true at all.’ [SOURCE]
My apologies for me not updating for a while. I have been looking but I haven’t found anything to update with. All I find are tabloid stories, which I don’t like to post here. Be assured, as soon as I find something, I’ll post it. I hope you’re all having a wonderful new year!!
Tom Cruise has been sued in a Los Angeles Superior Court.
The lawsuit claims that he hired convicted private investigator Anthony Pellicano to spy on magazine editor Michael David Sapir.
Sapir filed the legal complaint naming as defendants Cruise, his attorney Bert Fields, Matchtinger LLP and Anthony Pellicano.
The lawsuit appears to be part of a legal duel between the parties.
Sapir edits Bold, a periodical that in 2001 published a $500,000 reward for any video evidence that Cruise is gay.
Sapir claims that the magazine received a video and issued a press release to that end.
Cruise has consistently denied being gay. The actorâ€™s attorney, Fields, filed a lawsuit against Sapir’s magazine for defamation, seeking $100 million in damages.
Sapir alleges that during the defamation litigation, Cruise hired Pellicano to wiretap his phone.
The magazine editor is asking for $5 million. [SOURCE]
With work threatening to take Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to separate places on the globe this week, the couple made sure to celebrate their third wedding anniversary in advance.
On Saturday night, the pair â€“ who tied the knot in a lavish affair in Italy on Nov. 18, 2006 â€“ celebrated the milestone with a romantic Italian dinner at Boston’s Bricco restaurant. Cruise, 47, surprised Holmes, 30, by renting out the entire second floor of the eatery, where the pair dined on house-made pasta, Chilean sea bass (Holmes’s pick) and Wagyu steak (Cruise’s choice).
With 3-year-old daughter Suri at home, “they held hands the entire night,” Ron Leduc, director of operations for Bricco, tells PEOPLE. “They had a romantic dinner.”
The pair were ready for more romance the next night, when they stopped in Boston’s Abe & Louie’s restaurant, a favorite of the couple during their autumn stay as Cruise shoots the upcoming action-comedy Knight & Day.
Surrounded by their security team, Cruise and Holmes sat at a table in the front of the restaurant and finished their meal with two sweet treats: seven-layer chocolate cake and key-lime pie.
As for their actual anniversary, Cruise was scheduled to fly to Austria to continue shooting Knight & Day with Cameron Diaz. Holmes also has been busy with work: She is shooting the indie film The Romantics on Long Island, N.Y., where she filmed a wedding scene as the best friend of the bride (played by Anna Paquin).
“She really seems to be in great spirits today,” says a set source, noting that Holmes’s parents were with her on location. “She is in a great mood but I think you can tell she misses him.”Â [source]
