If there is one thing I am totally behind in this world of ours, it is out troops. No matter where you stand politically, the men and women over seas fighting for us are beyond brave and deserve every bit of praise they get.
That is why there are so many movies over the years like this.
Stirring, dramatic and reminding us how much we take for granted. They are amazing counts of how everyday heroes save the world.
Unfortunately, Tom Cruise didn’t get that memo.
Once again our winsome not so heroic Cruise has let the Scientology devil take over with a good dose of verbal madness. Recently court documents came to light suggesting Cruise felt his job as an actor, was akin to ‘fighting in Afghanistan’.
According to The Gawker,
When asked by a lawyer if he was aware that his own counsel had “equated your absence from [his daughter] Suri…to someone fighting in Afghanistan,” Cruise said he hadn’t heard the analogy, but agreed that “that’s what it feels like.”
“And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal,” he added.
This of course had to be said during a press Q&A for the new movie ‘Lone Survivor’.
Cruise’s co-star, and leading man of the movie, Mark Wahlberg was not amused. And he flipped out. Very much in the right. Wahlberg cam back at him with a very lengthy tirade telling Tommy Boy, to STFU;
“For actors to sit there and talk about ‘Oh I went to SEAL training,’ and I slept on the — I don’t give a fuck what you did,” Wahlberg exclaimed.
“You don’t do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as somebody in the military’s. How fucking dare you. While you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.”
“I don’t give a shit if you get your ass busted,” the tirade continued. “You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order fucking chicken. Or your steak. Whatever the fuck it is.”
Ohhhhh, snap. Although it was a bit out-of-bounds, Wahlberg just OWNED it.
Later he apologized for his ranty-rant and said he was ‘proud to be part of the movie’. I figure it was because PR told him to. I think it’s so Scientology, Tom Cruise’s handlers and Xenu don’t hunt his ass down.
Oh Tom Cruise when will you come back to us? Remember the days of ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Top Gun’? You were akin to a sex god. Now, you are riding the Scientology short bus. I guess when you’re co-pilot is Xenu, you are on a fast train, bound to end on the bad end of business these days.
Here’s hoping Cruise learns to control the ‘alien’ in his head, aka his brain. Team Wahlberg for the WIN!
