The famous words from Jerry Maguire may be his mission statement in life. Or may be it's what he chanted to Kate (that's what I'm calling her now) when they come up with their master plan. Holly Millea wrote about Tom's mantra of helping the world in this months Details Magazine. She was the one who got a special tour of Scientology from Mr Cruise himself. You can click here to read the entire article, but here is a quick look at some of the best quotes:
- "People want to knowâ€”how did I do what Iâ€™ve done? I donâ€™t believe in hiding things. A lot of people want to hide things and not let people know the truth because they feel that thereâ€™s a kind of control or power in that. See, I believe the opposite. If Iâ€™ve done something and itâ€™s helped me Iâ€™ll turn to anyone and say, â€˜Look, Iâ€™ve gone this way.â€™"
- "The Code of Honorâ€”Scientologyâ€™s equivalent of the Ten Commandments, only they have 15... Among the precepts:
5. Never need praise, approval or sympathy.
6. Never compromise with your own reality."
(These are my 2 favorites especially in reference to the craziness going on with him and Kate now - do you get what I'm saying?)
- "Iâ€™d like to have more kids," he says, referring to Isabella, 12, and Connor, 10. "But Iâ€™m not rushing into it. I like long-term relationships. Sex is great when youâ€™re in a relationship with someone. I just donâ€™t find it to be that interesting outside of that. Itâ€™s a little disconcerting."
Here are some of the very juicy pics and more quotes are after the jump.
- "You know, it happened (referring to his fathers death). Whatever. Iâ€™m gonna live my life and be the person that I want to be. And do the right thing. Thatâ€™s what I feltâ€”I want to do the right thing."
- "Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhismâ€”whatever gets you through the night," says director Harold Becker, who gave Cruise his big break in Taps. "People look in from the outside at someone like Tom Cruise and they say, â€˜How wonderful to be blessed that way, with everything.â€™ But nobody ever knows what torments anyone has to go through."
(I wonder what Director Becker is eluding to here?)
