Photos of Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise at Nutcracker, Video of Tom Cruise Interview With Matt Lauer Calling Himself Arrogant

Tom Admits His Arrogance While Suri Visits the Nutcracker

Katie Holmes and her parents took Suri Cruise around NYC and to The Nutcracker this weekend while Tom Cruise posed with fans out promoting Valkyrie. Tom recently revealed he needs to work on his acting skills for his toughest critic, Suri, who didn't believe him as Santa Claus last year. As for her Christmas gifts under the tree, Tom said Suri loves dolls and stuffed animals, which isn't such a big surprise. This morning, Tom was on The Today Show to sit down live with Matt Lauer again and talk about their infamous last interview. Tom said of looking back on it:

"It's not what I had intended. I thought, in looking at myself, I thought, I came across as arrogant . . . That's one of those things you go 'okay I could have absolutely handled that better'. . . I didn't communicate it the way that I wanted to communicate it. That's not who I am . . . I take responsibility for it and I learned a good lesson."

"Wow, judgemental people are a trip. You guys are more interesting than the subject matter." And the subject matter just so happens to be on a world-wide apology tour for being so judgemental! It all comes full circle. LOL....

It doesn't really matter what he says anymore, the man has slid down so low on my gage and I imagine it's easy for him to grovel now that he has a new movie coming out. I couldn't even get through the whole interview, he just creeps me out.

Tom Cruise... I feel very conflicted about him. I disagree with him on may of the issues he has chosen to spout off on but at the same time I don't feel that he is truly a terrible human being. I think he needs people in his life who can reason with him... Though at this point it may be too late. Besides, he reminds me of my dad who also has very set opinions that clash with the rest of my family. We work to reign him in and help him see reason and past his own ego. Even after all that though I don't believe my dad is a bad person. He feels true sorrow and guilt of ever he hurts one of us with his callousness. I don't think Tom's all that bad either. I don't condone his actions but I'm willing to give him the benifit of the doubt.

He was always crazy. This older article from the Toronto Sun kind of sums it up: Industry watchers pinpoint Cruise's public meltdown to his firing of the famed "suppress agent" Pat Kingsley as his publicist. Kingsley was infamous for micromanaging access to her client and threatening the very career of anybody who wrote anything negative about him. It's not as if Cruise's public image was 100% weird-free during the Kingsley years. There was that spate of superhero rescues he ostensibly performed about the time the first Mission: Impossible was released (saving a boy from a crush of paparazzi, saving a woman from a car wreck, saving a French family whose yacht exploded off the Isle of Capri). At least one of which, the yacht rescue, turned out to be false (the family was actually rescued by the Italian coast guard). But Kingsley quickly put a stop to any snark from the media. Since Cruise fired Kingsley, he hired his sister as his publicist, and has since fired her.

I never had a problem with Tom Cruise. These so called elite reporters are arrogant and deserves the loathing too like Matt Lauer,Katie Couric,Dan Rather,O'Riley,Brian Williams,Bryan Gambel,Barbara Walters,Oprah....I only like Tom Brokaw. Diane Sawyer seems mean and stuck up too.

Quoting: "God love him, he'd be so attractive if he wasn't batshit crazy." :ROTFL: I cannot improve on that. Brilliant.

Good interview but I enjoyed Oprah's more. Cruise never looked better and Im hearing Katie is being courted to do Finding Neverland the musical.

I dont read the tabloids that's why I like this man too. You are right Ohana because Four Christmases,Bolt and Twilight completely crushed Australia. If Americans wont care for Australia they wont care for Germany's heroes and history. They dont even care about U.S. History but know more about High School Musical. Would love to see Tom win the Globes or Katie the Tonys too. Its even an honor they are being recognized because they deserve it.

Yes, I agree. If Tom Cruise wants to believe were are infested with the sould of a thousand dead aliens, than so be it. More power to him. When Tom Cruise goes on The Today Show, which is watched by like 90% of the homes across America every morning and acts and speaks as if he knows more than medical doctors do, to the point where he is providing diagnosis and treatment advice?????? Then that's a very big issue, in my opinion. He deserves whatever flack he caught after that.

I meant at the end 'doctrine and belief, the other issues left to Doctors I think'

That's not how it went at all, peachmarlin. Watch the 2005 interview with Matt Lauer again. It was Tom who went off on this crazy tangent. The old "boo hoo...he was victmized" sob story doesn't play very well when presented with actual facts.
lisa101 lisa101 8 years
Is it religion or medicine we are talking about. If it's religion well It's upto him, but well martyr is a bit strong, he's not up for flogging yet..... as for medical issues the guy has no idea about treatment of these things and should therefore never of spoken out. The issues are blurred here-medicine versus religion. One is based on doctrine na dbelief, the other left to Doctors I think

How is this Tom's doing? Ive seen all interviews then and now and all Tom did was ANSWER ALL THE QUESTIONS ABOUT KATIE,DRUGS AND RELIGION THROWN AT HIM. Its the media who started it all and sensationalize it for ratings, for coverages and magazines to sell. I never saw Cruise grabbed a mike and said Ok today let's talk about depression and Scientology. Look at the stupid reporters asking him and Katie about personal stuff and not even their movies. And those videos leaked all over were not released by Cruise to promote his religion. They were all stolen properties and badly edited and many believed them as true. This site even promoted those stolen vids. Cruise is a victim in all this. I agree he and his family are classy and strong surviving the storm because many weak people even many stars cant handle that and most resort to rehab.

chocosora, everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. Tom Cruise, as a well recognized public figure across the globe, had no business whatsoever trying to preach and INFLICT his beliefs upon others on national television. Some people out there would not be able to live without drugs. To paraphrase what Matt Lauer said to Tom Cruise back in 2005--it's okay that these people are treated in the way YOU see fit rather than the way THEY see fit? No, uh-uh, don't think so.

By the way I did like his comment about it being Katies say really if they have more kids.

UnusualYou, you are very, very much mistaken. Tom Cruise most certainly did condemn every woman suffering from post-partum depression by saying that there is no such thing as a chemical imbalance, psychiatry is nothing but a psuedo-science and all these women need are a little exercise and vitamins and they'll be just fine and dandy! He specifically targeted his supposed "friend" by bad-mouthing Brooke Shields on national TV, but his crazed rant was delivered to all women suffering from the disease. YOU need to read between the lines because he was basically trying to claim this is all in these women's minds, so they don't need drugs to treat depression. It was a willful, reckless and ignorant comment upon a serious medical condition that millions have suffered from, one that already comes imposed with a stigma of guilt. There is no way to ever calculate how many women out there were hurt by this high-school drop-out NUTJOB's attempt to diagnosis and play doctor on TV.

Unusual You bravo. My mom is a psychiatrist but we stand by Tom and many people also do. We believe drugs are the last resort and while people are so into their meds its different for us Christians because we seek God first than all this drugs unless its a life or death situation. Hey many Christians like me and other religions are labeled crazy too not just Tom. People who stand by their beliefs are usually persecuted and called crazy. Look at world history,martyrs and people in the Bible who were all called crazy but they are not.Take a look at the fighting of gays vs Mormons and how many mocked the Amish community when those killings happened when the Amish people never do anything to harm us and the media. Good for Cruise calling on the overdrugging problem in America and the world because there is a crisis not just street drugs but most of all alcohol and prescription drugs.
lisa101 lisa101 8 years
Unuaual I think your right and he said it there. He has been a scientologist for 25 years without problems. This situation is of his own making. My other point is when posters come on and say he's so classy, and the all American family and forget his history, because it suits. He is no better than some of the woman that get crucified on this site IMO.
