    New poll shows Tom Cruise’s star falling
    But powerful Hollywood friends rally to actor’s defense



    Updated: 8:26 p.m. ET May 10, 2006
    LOS ANGELES - Powerful Hollywood friends of Tom Cruise rallied to his defense Wednesday as a new poll suggested the actor’s odd behavior in recent months may have cost him millions of dollars at the box office.

    Days after his latest movie, “Mission: Impossible III,” opened to lower-than-expected domestic ticket sales, a USA Today/Gallup poll showed Cruise’s star power has dimmed considerably during the past year in the eyes of the public.

    In the survey of 1,013 adults conducted during the film’s first weekend in theaters, 35 percent registered a favorable opinion of Cruise, while 51 percent had an unfavorable opinion.

    But one associate who spoke on condition of anonymity said any star “has to be careful” about the persona he or she projects off screen, and that Cruise may have become too freewheeling while promoting “War of the Worlds” in the midst of his high-profile courtship of Holmes last year.

    Textbook example of the "Mel Gibson" syndrome. What happens when an otherwise "safe" actor open their mouth and confirms that they are really more out there and weirdier than that dude you see all the time hanging out in the local Mall?....... the world comes crashing in...

    I don't know who I hate more.

    George Bush has destroyed America

    But Tom Cruise has destroyed America's sweetheart...Katie Holmes.

    I'm not defending Tom Cruise at all, but...

    What if this is an example of any celebrity showing themselves to be real people. What if it's more about society not wanting celebrities to be real people with real opinions,problems, their own world view. :(

    I normally just don't care about the plight of most celebrities unless it's an anecdote that has to do with their creative process, but I formed my own reaction to the Tom Cruise phenomenon by proxy to all the exposure. Where I once agreed I found Tom a little weird, I now find myself questioning myself.

    btw, are they stepping out of a Bugatti EB 16.4 Vehyron?

    :( :confused:

    How many real people do you know who believe in Xenu? Or run around going "I'm in LOOOOVE!" at the top of their lungs to everyone and anyone who will even pretend to listen at all? Or have a "quiet birth"? Or joke about eating the placenta? Or lambast people for taking prescription drugs, claiming that they know more than doctors on the subject?

    There are celebrities who are real people who don't conduct themselves in these sorts of ways. Tom Cruise is not one of them.

    There was an AOL poll yesterday on how you felt about Tom Cruise out of like over 60,000 80% loss respect for him for his past behavior. I'm trying to find the actual link but that's saying something.

    Not many but doesn't that just make him more unique? I have a bigger problem with people who don't think about anything bigger than themselves.

    I agree most celebrities don't do that, but maybe it isn't a bad thing for him to stop caring what the public thinks of him and be himself. He's gotten everything he'll ever need from the public and his career already. Wouldn't a lot of normal, attention ****e people do this same sort of thing if they were in his shoes?

    Don't know about the quiet birth thing, I know it's part of scientology or whatever. Lambasing people who take perscription drugs? I've heard a lot of people doing that. It's not an umcommon, or wholly wrong belief that doctors hand out a lot of those for the money. I refused perscription meds at a certain point in my life and stopped with that. I stopped treating depression.

    I'm not saying him or I are right, but I don't think it's wrong to evaluate your own situation and decide for yourself who you want to believe. (there are doctors on the flipside of this debate).

    yeah... Well we know that most celebrities conduct themselves in a certain way because it's all for their career. It's not like we see the real "them" by any stretch of the imagination.

    let's be honest.if they are lucky enough to crawl, fight, kill their way to the top.......act accordingly, please..........no Jerry Springer, trashy common, freak a$$, weirdo crap (we can see that outside and at work):mad:

    Agreed but this is sort of a to each his own case. It makes life interesting.

    Would you rather not have a celeb so easy to bash?

    Admitted that were certain points where I have said he's a wack-job. But then I rewatched Mission Impossible, or Jerry Maguire, or dare I even saw Top Gun. I still end up loving the guy again.:(:up:

    Eh Bush just hit 29% and has like a 65% disapproval rating (way higher then 51%) so Cruise is still in good shape by comparison. Can't stand either personally though...but then again I couldn't stand either when they were really popular either.

    Eh, not only is he on the the tabloids and news all the time but he has articles like this all the time, describing how weird he is, or some crap like that.
    I think the most annoying thing about him right now is, he's just become too overexposed. It's like the fame has got to the guy, and turned him insane.

    On no, wait i know. Mid-life crisis. He's trying to be as famous and popular as he was in his youth.

    I'd go with Tom Cruise. America can be repaired, but Katie is tainted FOREVER!
